  1. Life on the Gulf Coast

    I moved to the Gulf Coast from Kansas City, MO in May of 2008. The effects of Katrina were still everywhere economically and somewhat physically. Places like Waveland, MS were nearly wiped off the map. While there has been some rebuilding, there are still entire neighborhoods near the coastline where it looks like a nuclear disaster. Lot after lot with dead trees just waiting to fall over and slabs of concrete where houses once stood are overgrown with weeds. Biloxi, where I live, has rebuilt ...

  2. The implications of the Tea Party movement

    Having attended more than one Tea Party gathering, I can assure everyone that the amount of disinformation regarding the Tea Parties is astounding. The amount of fear mongering and lies being told by the liberal media is quite sad, almost to the point of laughable. Instead of focusing on what the movement stands for and who the people are that are involved in the movement, it seems to be much more popular to highlight the extremely small fringe (I would say less than 1% of those involved) and ...

  5. How to fix our broken government

    People of all political persuasions are starting to wake up to how big our government has become and it's frightening. I consider myself to be a fiscal conservative but socially liberal, so I don't fit into a neat little label that you may want to place on me. I'm a firm believer in the Constitution and the powers it both declares and takes away from government. But I've reached a point to where enough is enough. The Constitution has been spit on, pissed on, **** on and disregarded for far, ...
