This is Earth Day in 2014, a day when we recommit to environmental awareness and ongoing protection of the environment.

Today the internet is filled with articles urging people to honor Earth Day by fighting manmade global warming (MGW), or as it was renamed when reality collided with faulty warming predictions, global climate change (GCC).

Deportation of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants has always been and remains a contentious issue. At a time when all liberty loving Texans are concerned with the worrisome growth in federal law enforcement resources and domestic spying, do we really need to add more federal “cops” for any purpose – even mass deportation?   Read more »

"The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youth."-Erasmus
