Contract with America - 2006: The Gingrich Plan
Gingrich: 11 Steps for GOP Victory in November...
House and Senate Republicans can learn from history. They can listen to the American people and return to the center-right populist majority which President Reagan and the Contract with America gave them. The choice is theirs -- and ours. Kudos to Newt for his leadership in trying to set another contract with America!

Crocodile Hunter was a Success
DEATH BY ANIMAL: Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed in stingray attack...
I was a big fan of Steve’s. One of the main reasons that I was such a huge fan was that he was an entrepreneur and businessman that developed his love and passion into a profitable and successful business. Our prayers are for his wife and two children.

Michigan Sheriff ready to take on Democrat US Senator
Secure Our Future :: Bouchard Republican for Senate
I had the opportunity as a major county sheriff myself to work with Sheriff Bouchard on many occasions. During our discussions, Mike helped me understand the importance of being a strong leader as the sheriff of a large, populated county. Mike is a strong Federalist-type sheriff and is staring to scare his democratic opponent and one of the current US Senator’s in Michigan. Please check out Mike’s website. Mike and Sheriff Joe Arapao of Maricopa County, Arizona were two sheriffs that I tried to emulate while I was sheriff here in Johnson County. Good luck Mike and God bless! Here is Sheriff Bouchard’s sheriff’s office website as well. Oakland County Sheriffs Department

Britain discovers secret army of well-trained Jihadi terrorists
Intelligence services, police stunned by sweep of schools, mosques in wake of foiled bomb plot
No matter how you slice it, London is daily looking more like "Londonistan." Or perhaps more precisely, as Peter Clarke, head of Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist squad puts it, Britain has become al-Qaida's European headquarters "housing a secret army of thousands of well-trained guerrilla fighters ready to kill in the name of religion." Pay attention America! Don’t let this happen to you!

Massachusetts governor calls former president 'terrorist'

NBC’s David Gregory at it again!
REPORTER TO BUSH SPOKESMAN: 'DON'T POINT YOUR FINGER AT ME!'...
A not especially eventful press briefing at the White House today turned rancorous with NBC's David Gregory telling Press Secretary Tony Snow, "Don't point your finger at me," and Snow accusing the newsman of being "rude" and delivering Democratic talking points. To be honest with you Bush should just end the press conference with the liberal media and co direct with the public. The technology exists now to do so!

Faces on the Front
Care packages to Iraq put smiles on Marines’ faces
As the Marines begin the last leg of their deployment, they have a simple message for all those who have supported them with care packages, letters and other correspondence –“thank you.”

Tax cuts are a winner, and the jobs picture proves it
The Dems Never Learn
Tax cuts are a winner. They throw off benefits across the board: capital formation, profitable business, job gains, wage increases, and consumer spending power. I wish more local government leaders would understand economics in a capitalistic democracy.

Court decision could open the door to radical tax reform
What Can the Government
Tax experts immediately recognized the far-reaching implications of this decision for other areas of tax law. Tax protesters have long argued that the 16th Amendment does not grant the federal government the power to tax every single receipt that it deems to be income. Yet, in practice, that is what the Internal Revenue Service does.

Real GDP growth up
Economy bad? Sorry, numbers don't add up Last week's report from the Commerce Department that the economy grew by a nearly 3 percent annualized rate (2.9 percent) in the second quarter -- a significant improvement over its earlier 2.5 estimate. That is a very strong growth rate by any criteria, stronger than other industrialized economies and signals the economy is headed for a "soft landing" from its torrid and unsustainable first-quarter pace of 5.6 percent.

Lack of rain, Corps of Engineers figure in problem on Perry Lake and others in Kansas
Lake levels frustrate boaters
Ok folks lets have a quick lesson on why the federal lakes were developed here along the Kansas and Missouri rivers to begin with, shall we? The 1951 flood caused severe economic devastation to the Midwest. In order to prevent a repeat of the flood and in order to mitigate the possibility of swollen tributaries into the Kansas River, the US Army, Corps of Engineers developed and built a series of lakes along the Kansas River, one of those lakes, being Lake Perry. The whole purpose of these federal, flood control lakes was to prevent future flooding. The secondary purpose of the lakes was to provide waters in order to help keep the Kansas River navigable, at least to some extent. Recreation was a tertiary purpose. Please try and remember why we pay our tax dollars!
