"Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent
alliances with any portion of the foreign world.."
George Washington (1796)
"Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should
be our motto."
Thomas Jefferson (1799)
"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States
in violation of our laws is a serious national problem
detrimental to the interests of the United States." -
Ronald Reagan, 1981
never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It
does so because honor is, finally, about defending those
noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if
it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean
social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution,
or as always, even death itself. The question remains:
What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What
is worth living for?" -
William J. Bennett in a
lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997

"What Has America Become" was the title of a letter to the
editor written by Ken Huber of Tawas City, Michigan. It contains a
series of comparisons and contrasts which causes one to think about
the double-standards and conditions under which we now live here in

What has America become?
Has America become the land of special interest and home of
the double standard?
Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if
the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a
black person, we're racist and if a black person dislikes
whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends
millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost
nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach
that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word
God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is
wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in
America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and
socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are
unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem
protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest
against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist, but
if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it
was your 1st Amendment right.
You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you
better not put a nativity scene in a public park during
Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they
are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for
medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.
We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to
those who don't want to work; we all support the
Constitution, but only when it supports our political
ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we
are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced
with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now
the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane
Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did
anything to help.
And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government
appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then
threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the
problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection
What has happened to the land of the free and home of the
