Here in the U.S, we should be mindful of what happens across the Atlantic. We’ve seen what happens when government violates parental rights.

We all take for granted the fact that our conversations are private.  Every person makes comments, appropriate or inappropriate in private to one person or a handful of people.  As we mature, we learn who we can trust–and who is a blabbermouth.  I contest that there has never been a […]

Conservatives have wondered how deep the IRS scandal is and how many people have lied.  At one time Obama informed the American people that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” involving the targeting of Tea Party  groups by the IRS—but not surprisingly, it appears he was not completely […]
