President Trump’s Tax Returns

Demoncraps claim Mnuchin’s refusal to hand over President Trump’s tax returns “sets up a legal battle.” Bull Shit. Mnuchin didn’t hand them over because IT IS NOT LAWFUL. Just because Demoncraps in Congress cry like babies about something DOES NOT make it LAWFUL. Mnuchin is absolutely correct in that U.S. Supreme Court precedence based on […]

Term Limits for Congress

I like what Charlie Daniels has to say on the matter, except the part about the lengths of terms.  His proposal is just way too darn short, for a variety of reason.  I agree with term limits, provided they’re not so short that there’s no continuity.

Second Amendment Definitions: Well Regulated – Militia – Arms – Shall

Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court have continually tripped over the meaning of these four simple words: well regulated militia arms shall Their ineptitude astounds me.  The only plausible explanation is that instead of examining what the words actually mean, and supporting and defending them as required by their oaths of office and the […]
