The Christmas Story is Not about a Homeless Couple

With Congress wrangling over amnesty for illegal aliens, the budget, taxes, earmarks, and the extension of unemployment benefits, it won’t be long before we hear liberals telling conservatives how unchristian they are for not voting for more government aid to help the poor.

It’s Okay to Steal

If I break into my neighbor’s house and steal from him when I am out of a job or need money, it would be a crime and I would most likely go to jail or be made to pay restitution. However, if I help to elect someone to political office and he makes laws to […]
