“The Vice President’s committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.
“Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, left, says the Texas school system “has really struggled” under Governor Rick Perry. Why is Arne Duncan messing with Texas? I asked the Secretary of Education about this a few hours after he injected himself into the presidential-election scrum. Continue reading →
What I learned in my 20’s traveling the globe as an Air Force pilot, our current president has yet to acknowledge in his 50’s – that we are the most exceptional nation on the face of the earth.
As Americans, we believe freedom is a gift from God, and government’s prime function is to defend it. We don’t see the role of government as a nanny state, and we recognize there is no government money that wasn’t once earned through the sweat and toil of private citizens. Continue reading →

Texas: Where Opportunity Still Looms Large.

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend” is an ancient Arabian proverb that I believe may benefit those who supported a candidate who did not succeed in the 2010 Primary Election.
I recently saw a blog post that said, “If you are not supporting Perry, you are not opposing White – a liberal supporter of abortion on demand, gay marriage, sanctuary city for aliens, cap & trade, and gun control.”
I believe that is a powerful statement. If you really believe the things you say you do, how can you refuse to support Governor Rick Perry? Your standards are not what you say they are; they’re what you demonstrate by your actions.
