“We must stop being the stupid party.” It is true that when Gov. Bobby Jindal said this he was referring to Republicans like Todd Akin, whose ignorant ideas on abortion probably cost him an election last year, but antiquated and ignorant stances are not our only enemy – priorities are, too. I will now use this article attempt to adumbrate the priorities of conservatives living in America. Our first priority should be to fix America’s $16 trillion deficit. The government is bloated and there are many cuts that can be made and even a few departments that could be...Read More

President Obama has recently proposed a plan that would impose new gun control measures on the American public. He also signed 23 executive orders to help further his crusade of limiting gun violence.

On November 15, 2012, Hostess CEO Greg Rayburn decided to liquidate the company and, along with it, the Twinkie. I have always considered the Twinkie to be the best American dessert, representing what America is all about – freedom. In this case it is the freedom to eat a snack made from enriched, bleached wheat flour, sugar, eggs, and FD&C Yellow 5 (also found in pet food and nail polish remover). Bankruptcy became Hostess’ only option after the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union went on strike on November 9th – which I will remember as...Read More
