Remember April 30, 1789? Probably not.

Today, we are celebrating April 30, 1789. What happened on that very important day? It was the day that George Washington was sworn in as the very first President of the United States of America. He needed no teleprompter or a university with his name, though there are now. He was an All-American hero and while…

Nancy Reagan Will Be Missed

Back when former First Ladies were classy and did not try to guilt the American people into liking them, there was Jackie Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, Barbara Bush, and Nancy Reagan.

Reaction to the CNBC 2015 GOP Debate

I want to apologize, dear readers, I planned on Live Tweeting the Republican Presidential debate as it was broadcast live from CNBC.

On September 11th, 2001, I was being home-schooled by my Mom alongside my sister. My dad was out on a business engagement and the sun was shining.  However, we got an urgent call from a friend who knew we never turned on the TV that the United States of America had been attacked in New…

July 9th- George Washington’s Troops

I came upon a very interesting fact. Though the Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4th, 1776 by the United States Continental Congress, it was read to George Washington’s troops on July 9th in New York City. I have to wonder what our first US troops were thinking. They knew they were going to…

A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand

On June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln won the newly formed Republican Party’s Senate nomination (he would loose the general election) and in his acceptance speech, he said these famous words: “A house divided against itself cannot stand” Now, more than ever, we need to stand together. We’ve seen so much turmoil in this nation. We’ve…
