Why Iran Is Our Enemy

Why Iran Is Our Enemy

Terrorism is Our Fault

ANOTHER ATTACK IN NEW JERSEY thankfully failed and it is obviously our fault. But first, let’s see how we can make this Bush’s, Trump’s or the Republican’s fault. If all else fails, it is White America to blame. Because it could never be Obama’s fault, or worse, something about the Peaceful Political Ideology aka Islam.... Read more »

More Gun Control Will Prevent Terrorism?

More gun control would have prevented this latest mass shooting, according to President Obama. At least that was the inference from his first statements on national TV in the immediate wake of the latest terrorist attack. Of course, it wasn’t a terrorist attack, it was perhaps another instance of work-place violence. It can be argued... Read more »

    Views and opinions from the Gold Star, Military and Veteran perspective are generally different from those of the civilian world. Much of what I write is "their" stories, as told to me as the Gold Star Mother of PFC Andrew Meari, KIA 11/1/10 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. This is how I continue to honor the Oath my son took. I don't like labels or boxes as the former is insufficient to describe a person and the latter limits a person but if you insist, call me a Progressive Republican. I believe in this country, our Constitution and above all, in the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe our government is supposed to serve the people, not tell them how to live. To me, this is just common sense but since it seems to be a minority opinion, it has become "Uncommon Sense".
