Here is the beginning for a Patriot Dictionary. Feel free to submit suggestions.
The United States of America, also known at the Great Experiment, has survived many adversaries, wars and economic cycles. Our Judeo-Christian religious foundation gave us three branches of government, the rule of law and an unwavering belief in God. Our religious tolerance is now a weapon used against us by atheists, Muslims and the government to destroy this foundation. Christianity is under attack across the world and the reason is simple: a national or world…Continue
I was asked to prepare a talk on the topic of “Jeffersonian Liberty” for Brock’s October PATCON. I decided to publish ahead of the gathering. …Continue

The Dow Jones Industrial Average has lost 3.44% of its "value" in the past month. The first disturbing trend is that the media is overlooking the downtown as part of a normal August cycle where the traders are vacationing in the Hamptons. I do not think Japan's traders are on vacation and may be the partial reason why the Nikkei 225 lost more last night (August 20,…Continue
For people who have studied the rise of the Socialist party in Nazi Germany, it would be an affront to compare the Obama administration to Hitler's horrors. But even Adolph Hitler had to start his reign of terror from nothing as people across the world ignored or appeased him until his ambitions and atrocities could no longer be ignored. So where are we in the United States in comparison to Nazi Germany?…Continue
For the first time, I have to question whether everyone should have the right to vote. I believe in the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are…Continue
After a full week where the United States has capitulated to a "terrorist" threat, the president has decided to reopen 18 embassies. And then he goes on vacation.
Indulge me by considering a few questions now that the "threat" is averted?
1. What is the status of the IRS Tea Party investigation?…Continue
There is an old saying that is appropriate for Colorado's Senate President, John Morse. His "better to be safe than sorry" defense against a recall effort is better described as:
It is better to have the devil you know (than the devil you don't).
Let's expand this a little further. Isn't this why we have a high rate for re-electing…Continue
The federal government and the media have deceived the people about the true state of our economy. If, has now been replaced by "when" will the economy collapse. What are the signs that the collapse is imminent? We have to look at the facts and also what is not being reported in order to deceive us.
Here are some facts:
1. The stock market…Continue
The US House rejected the suspension of illegal NSA surveillance. Why was a vote even necessary? And where are the hearings about this illegal surveillance and its unbridled funding? Here is Rep. Bachmann's thoughts on the…Continue
After one day of deliberation, the jurors reached a verdict that was expected by the trial that has captured the nation's attention. Trayvon Martin was found guilty of murder in the first degree in the death of George Zimmerman. Mr. Martin had hoped to be tried as a minor since he was only 17 when he was arrested, but the death of Mr. Zimmerman by having his skull smashed repeatedly against a concrete pavement left the nation outraged. At first, there was little attention…Continue
Ever have a piece of equipment fail over time? It works good enough so that you accept the "minor" inconvenience of it running slower, costing money to patch it and/or listening to its death rattle? Life and work goes on and it is easier to ignore the problem than fix it.
The Utah Data Center is expected to be online in September, 2013:
The Utah Data Center is…Continue
Foreshadowing or adumbrating is a literary device in which an author gives hints of certain plot developments that will come later in the story.
The news story of the hour is the Detroit bankruptcy. The pundits are pointing fingers and wondering how this could have happened. The consequences of the…Continue
So Trayvon Martin just went to the store to get some Skittles and a drink. I never thought about these products before. I never knew that he had not opened them as he walked home. Of course I had never heard of "Lean" before or how to make it. I had never heard before that the "judge" in this case suppressed this from…

USS Kearsage, USS San Antonio opposite Egypt
The Obama administration outed Israel to Russia as the country which bombed Latakia in Syria on July 5th. Obama's continued support of the Muslim Brotherhood in the formation of the new Egyptian government has now been expanded into a show of force using…Continue

Remove all of the white noise concerning Edward Snowden and we are left with a simple question: when will Congress stop the NSA and the administration from illegally spying on us? No one is arguing that the programs are illegal. No one is arguing that the United States has become a repressive police state where "free speech" has become an illusion. Gary Pruitt, the…Continue
I will no longer celebrate the 4th of July for reasons explained below.
Some background on the 4th of July:
During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June…Continue

Our country has now reached the final line in the sand. We have talked (and talked) about how our government has crossed lines in the past over specific issues. And we did nothing at each loss of our freedom to tyranny. At the success of each "nudge" by the government, it became even more emboldened to the point where we now find our president declaring that we must fund abortion regardless of our religious tenets concerning the sanctity of life.
We now have to…Continue
Another 5-4 split decision from the Supreme Court. This ruling means the federal government must recognize gay marriages as being legal by the states (12 states and DC). It is clear that the Supreme Court is more interested in politics than the Constitution or the future of the Republic.
Let me be clear: this case was never about equality. It is about the destruction of the standard definition of marriage to further erode what little morality this country has left.…Continue
Our freedom and Liberty are slipping away. The NSA Prism program showed us two points:
1. The government acknowledges no individual right to privacy.
2. Whistle blowers are traitors to the regime.
Will the people fight for their freedom? Slipping poll numbers for the president will not stop these abuses by the…Continue
