Send Support to Our Imprisoned Border Patrol Agents

I recently received an email with the mailing addresses for Compeon and Ramos:

Jose Compean, #58080180FCI, Elkton, P.O. Box 10, Lisbon, OH 44432

Ignacio Ramos #58079-180FCI, Yazoo City Medium Federal Correctional Institution, P.O. Box 5888Yazoo City, MS 39194

I would encourage everyone to write letters of encouragement to these two men. And, while you are at it, it would help if you could send a few emails to President Bush, your Senators and Congressmen asking the President to pardon these men. Also, request them to do everything in their powers to look into why a Federal Prosecutor is going after Sheriff's Deputies and Border Patrol Agents instead of drug dealers and criminals.

The Immigration Challenge for Democrats

I just read an extremely interesting article on Politico.com by Ben Smith on Democrat Presidential Candidates and immigration. I am going to post the link below, but the idea of the story is that unlike in the recent past Democrats are actually being challenged to take a stand on this very important issue in, of all places, Iowa. I see this as a good sign for the GOP because for too long the Democrats have gotten away with running just on what the Republicans have done wrong. Now that they control the Senate and the House they will have to explain how they are going to deal with everyday issues. Then voters will be able to more accurately judge Democrat initiatives against conservative GOP initiatives. And, I believe we win that battle every time. I mean, can anyone actually tell me what Hillary Clinton's immigration views are. Or, for that matter, Barack Obama and John Edwards'. While immediately off the top of my head I can list Mike Huckabee's fair and balanced plan or John McCain's amnesty laced plan just to name two. I hope that during the coming election, especially since it started so early this time around, there will be more debates and more dialog on where each candidate actually stands; and not just well rehearsed talking points.

The Global Warming Lie

Liberals are counting on gullible citizens being too lazy to research for themselves unbiased, real scientific information on the truth about global warming. The truth; it does not exist. It is a known fact that the earth goes through regular climate cycles of warming and cooling. I just want to point out how insane these claims are. Recently, I have been hearing about carbon dioxide being the main pollutant that must be stamped out. Did these people skip third grade science?

Am I the only one who remembers the charts showing humans inhaling oxygen from the plants and exhaling carbon dioxide, which plants need to survive and make oxygen? So if we go off the deep end and do what they are suggesting we would be contributing to our own (and our children's demise). Without carbon dioxide plants cannot live or release oxygen into the air for humans to breathe and live.

Don't get me wrong, we need to be good stewards of the earth and do our part to protect the environment for ourselves and our children. Our goal should be to leave the earth in better condition for the next generation. However, taking some hair-brained idea to unscientific and counter productive extremes only does harm. It is like taking the pendulum from one extreme to the other, until it rests in the middle neither side will gain anything productive.

Sure, the global warming argument has scientists who swear their research proves their claims. However, every side of every issue can produce scientists, research or proof their claims are right. I ask that you consider the unbiased and scientific information that is readily available.

After all, if you take what global warming extremists are claiming then we are probably responsible for the warming on Mars. We had better getting those rovers and probes out of there before we destroy the planet! Or, could it just be the same solar cycle that effects the Earth? Remember these extremist claims when down the road these environmental extremists are claiming that we are headed for an ice age caused by the pollutants of man.

Issues For Concerned Moms (and Dads)

Here are a couple of links for concerned mothers (there is also the same sight for Dads) who care about the messages your children are exposed to on TV. This is your opportunity to do something about it.

Did Pelosi Committ a Felony?

I believe the lower-level Republicans and Nancy Pelosi had no business traveling to Syria. Even though they claim they are not making policy or representing the US, the very act of them being there has already done so. This is treasonous behavior that needs to stop. The only representative that should ever travel to ENEMY countries is the President himself or a representative directly sent by him. An article in the Wall street journal even suggests she may have committed a felony by doing so:

An article from Townhall.com also scolds her for her behavior:

Branches of our government need to stop stealing powers they don't constitutionally have and abusing those they do have. It is time our representatives start putting what's best for the country ahead of their own agendas. What is best for the country is UNITY and returning to the constitutional foundation our forefathers had intended (a weaker Federal Government and stronger State Governments).

By allowing States to individually make decisions on issues such as abortion, so called church and state, and education you are giving freedom back to the people. This creates unity by giving the people the choice what their state stands for. If they don't like what one state does or does not allow they can choose to live in another state. This separateness creates unity by allowing all Americans, who are not all the same, to live as one without giving up who they are.

Huckabee on Face the Nation

Below is a link to Huckabee's interview on Face the Nation. You will also find a link to the transcript of the interview below if you have dial-up. You will notice that Huckabee came out stronger than usual against his Republican opponents. It's about time. We also received an email that the issues section on Huckabee's website will be expanded sometime this week. Be sure to keep an eye out for it. You will find this link at the top of our links section.
