Our Opinion (and it is right)

We love our country but fear our government...


Our government's spending rate (and that's just the Federal government)! 
US debt clock interesting (but not if you have a weak stomach).

As of March 1, 2018, the official debt of the United States government is over
20-trillion dollars.  That's $62,600 for every man, women and child.
(interesting statistics)

Here's why we are in this mess.  Curious, what a trillion dollars would look like?


Some of the information goes way back, so links [to various articles] may now be invalid...

Simply out of control!  (newest on top)

Which brings a question for this country: How much "green tax" are we willing to pay?

Let's face it, we are all willing to reduce our "carbon footprint" only to our own luxury.


The recent Florida shooting was certainly horrific, but there were plenty of (ignored) warnings including 39 police calls against the individual. 

Aside: Interesting statics (right), show many European countries having a higher death rate by gun than we have here in the U.S.

Deranged individuals (or groups) intent on killing will succeed no matter the laws.  It is already illegal to kill someone!

Just a few single event murders in the not to distant past:

mass

From this article from Investors.com:  According to FBI crime data cited by the Daily Caller, deaths by knives in the U.S. outnumber deaths by rifles by five to 1: In 2016, 1,604 people were killed by knives and other cutting instruments, while 374 were killed by rifles.

Mass murder by rifle up 200% since the ban was lifted? - False (unless you skew the numbers by going back to 1900 to start your statics).

Can we please get off the "assault rifle" headlines?  The dreaded "AR" rifle is simply that, a rifle!  And AR does not stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle,” it is from the developer's name ArmaLite.

While AR's look military, they are just rifles like one would use for target shooting and hunting.  They are not automatic weapons, they are SEMI-automatic like a handgun.  The argument that they serve no other purpose than mass-murder is simply specious! 

Finally; we choose to own all kinds of things that serve no purpose other than enjoyment of use.  That is our right!


We need to stop distancing government spending from its true source. Stop using the term “government program” and perhaps start saying “tax payer funded” instead…

According to an ongoing temperature analysis conducted by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), the average global temperature on Earth has  increased by about 0.8° Celsius (1.4° Fahrenheit) since 1880.  But here's a weird coincidence (or is it?)

No tricks or manipulation here.  This is an exact scan of the IRS response to a request we made in August 2013...

Apparently they were too busy doing other stuff like erasing email, hard drives and apparently phones too.

Do we really want the government in charge of healthcare? (or much else for that matter)

What were we thinking?
