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.

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

  “America’s oldest tradition, Thanksgiving is also a reaffirmation of our most deeply held values; a public recognition that, in the words of Thomas Jefferson, ‘God who gave us life gave us liberty.’ In gratitude for God’s gift of freedom and ‘for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.”  George […]

Trick or Treat

October 31, 2014
Trick or treat

Actually Halloween is one of the oldest holidays still celebrated. As I said its origins can be traced back to the Celtics almost 2000 years ago. The Druids regarded November 1 as New Year’s Day. It was known as Samhain, (pronounced sow’-en), which literally meant the end of summer. It was a time for celebrating the year’s harvest and for honoring the dead. The Celts believed that all laws of time and space were suspended during this time, allowing spirits to roam the earth and intermingle with the living, so they built raging fires and made offerings to appease these restless spirits.

Freedom is a tough thing to explain to those that are currently not living under its protection.  It is a complicated form of existence with numerous variables.  It is generally defined as, “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.”  Most simply put it is the power […]
