Survival, The “New Normal” of Obamacare

“Basically, I’m helping support three families right now – mine, my daughter and my youngest son,” shared Norma, a Tennessee mom who has seen just how destructive bad policies like Obamacare can be. It’s difficult to watch anyone undergo hardships, but when it’s your own family, the heartache is even more painful. Norma’s three grown children, all who work and have kids, have been adversely affected by the new healthcare law. “They are trying to be the best they can,” said Norma. But, in a system where opportunity is impeded by rules, regulations and high costs, any type of economic advancement seems out of reach. One of her ...

Shocking update: America has enormous energy resources

In the last few years, almost every American has heard of “lithium.” However, who knew it was this important? From an article in 2009: Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere — in your phone, laptop, and by this time next year, maybe your car.

Norm Dicks calls it quits

There has been a rash of articles lately about possible favoritism by Washington D.C. lawmakers for earmarking millions of dollars for agencies run by family members. One man that has drawn fire is Norm Dicks, 71, (WA. D.) Journalists and the Dicks family have parried back and forth in The Washington Post, The Bellingham Herald, Citizen Review Online, The Seattle Times, and others. Some are critical of the veteran politician from the Puget Sound but most defend him. The fact is Norm is a very experienced politician and he knows how to pull strings and make things happen. He has been doing it since 1976. His concern for a clean Puget Sound is ...

Why run against Norm Dicks - or suggest doing so? By Larry Killion, Tea Party Patriot Citizen Journalist Over the past several years many voters have become more and more concerned about the direction America is going. It is encouraging to see in movements like the Tea Party that people are getting stirred up and getting involved. If only more would have heard the Dicks Cloud Debate in Sequim back before the last election. Many there believed Doug won the debate but  he lost the election. That is no surprise to most folks when we consider the zombie like fashion in which most of the drones of the Evergreen State go to the polls after drinking in ...
