Holocaust – Short Memories

April 21, 2015
Pix-6-203x300

Several years ago I wrote an article titled “A Time to Remember” it was about Yom Hashoa, Holocaust Remembrance Day. This internationally recognized date comes from the Hebrew calendar and corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on that calendar. It marks the anniversary of the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto.

When the Republicans won the Senate it was a happy time in GOP land.  Now they had a chance to show the people of the United States and the world they knew how to govern.  Three months into the New Year we still have yet to see that happening.  After a few weeks of infighting […]

A Huge Step Backwards

March 31, 2015
Mike Pence

But I’m not writing this article to give you a brief amateur lesson in Constitutional Law but to give you a basis for understanding this….The Constitution protects our right to be idiots plain and simple and past history has born that statement as a “truism” more times than I can count. So why was I surprised when Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed into law a bill that would allow business to discriminate using religion as an excuse. The “Religious Freedom Act” would allow business to deny service to anyone if the owner feels providing that service would conflict with his religious beliefs. I guess Pence forgot about a much high law, the Constitution. You see you can’t protect one person’s Constitutional rights at the cost of another.

2000 Articles

February 5, 2015
This is not how we believe at this web site.

A Hollywood Republican was started in November, 2008 shortly after Barack Obama because the 45th President of the United States. It was begun as a result of the frustration I was experiencing with the election and with the pundits who were giving hundreds of reasons for the election. The very first article was my personal plan on how to bring the GOP back on the correct course. Well, this is now article number 2000 on this web site. That’s right, 2,000 articles in just more than six year. Not a bad accomplishment.

Freedom

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

Tis the Season

Tis the Season

Lights, Christmas trees, tinsel, ornaments, gifts all occupy most of our minds this time of year.  I think over the centuries the real meanings and “founders of the feast” have been blurred and all but forgotten by the bright lights and holiday rush we all have become a part of.  So let’s slow down for […]

A Time to be Thankful
