Happy Fourth of July 2009

Happy Fourth of July 2009

On this day of all days, never forget that it is a profound privilege, and a blessing from God, to live in the United States of America. Volumes could be (and have been) filled with evidence of this simple yet oft slippery truth. Even in certain circles of American “Christians” it’s becoming uncool-ish to have [...]

Memorial Day 2009

Memorial Day 2009

Today we are free because greater men and women before us bled for it. Some still bleed. Others carry old scars. Let us be sure that we forget none of them. If you want to honor the fallen, find an elderly or disabled veteran and lend them your helping hands for a few hours… and [...]

Albany Tax-Day Tea Party 2009

Albany Tax-Day Tea Party 2009

So about three weeks ago now I participated in Albany’s local extension of the national Tax-Day Tea Party. All manner of Capital Region folks came out to support positive tax reform and responsibility in government spending. This is a particularly salient point in the capital of New York State. We recently ranked last (dead last… [...]

Armenian Genocide Remembrance – 2009

Armenian Genocide Remembrance – 2009

I’m Armenian. It’s April 24. ‘Nuff said. theForgotten.org | Never-Again.com From the Genocide Education Project: Armenians around the world observe April 24 as the day of remembrance for the Armenian Genocide. On this date in 1915, the Turkish government arrested close to 250 Armenian leaders in Constantinople. They were sent to prison and most were [...]

Enter Hope’nchange: Obama Becomes the President

Enter Hope’nchange: Obama Becomes the President

Today Barack Hussein Obama becomes the 44th President of the United States. I wasn’t necessarily a fan of John McCain, but I really did NOT want to see a Chicago liberal become president. I have been fairly quiet since the election, and was shockingly more distraught about my beloved Patriots losing last year’s SuperBowl XLII [...]

We Shall Not Forget

We Shall Not Forget

This morning the United States of America marked the seventh anniversary of the 9-11 attack on our country, our people, and our freedom. It’s been a few years since I touched on this, but I felt compelled today to reiterate that the perpetrators of this barbarous act against everything good we stand for were cowardly, [...]

You might be a redneck if…

You might be a redneck if…

I live in the socialist Northeast where any slightly critical remark that could be remotely interpreted as possibly applying to a specific culture or race is totally and extremely offensive — unless, of course, you’re poking fun at rednecks/Southerners (which to ignorant Northeasters are the same people), or Christians. Oh yes… up in the Northeast [...]

Trapped Watching the Olympics

Trapped Watching the Olympics

Instead of posting on my blog I’ve found myself watching the Olympics. I’m not sure why, but once I start getting into it I can’t turn it off. The wave of patriotism that naturally comes from national competition forces left-leaning journalists for a few weeks to have to pretend the United States is worth cheering [...]

Independence Day Prayer

Independence Day Prayer

For those sincerely appreciative of this great country, and the relatively cushy care-free lifestyle they’ve been blessed with, may they be granted further blessing. For those who are not… may they be cast out into the darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For our troops, grant them safe travels until they [...]

Shot Heard Round the World

Shot Heard Round the World

The US Consitution dodged a bullet today… and socialism took it in the gut. In a landmark 5-4 ruling the US Supreme Court recalibrated the anti-gun wingnuts. The high court repeated to us the 2nd Amendment – using small words we ALL could understand – which secures the citizen’s right to own firearms for personal [...]
