Obama, you should have known better…

I just got done watching the speech that Obama gave tonight regarding the attack in San Bernardino, CA.  And I have one thing to say to him... Why, oh why, would you bring up gun control?? Most of the speech made sense!  Stronger screening of people coming into this country on visa's, determining if they... Continue Reading →

Up Yours, Romney.

I have always believed in the American Dream.  Work hard and you will be successful.  I have also always believed that when you reach success you should turn around and give back to those behind you. I have... Continue Reading →

The Quest for Social Security Cards

It was just about a year ago... there I sat, in my car outside the social security office at 8:30 in the morning, with my children's birth certificates in hand.  I was determined to be one of the first people in the door, get my kids social security cards ordered and get on with my...
