“Remember the Alamo!”
In 1821, Mexico won independence from Spain and established a Mexican Republic with a Federal Constitution.
In 1833, Santa Anna was elected President of Mexico, but quickly turned his presidency into a dictatorship by rejecting the Constitution, demanding high taxes and seizing guns.
Santa Ana punished States not submitting to his centralized government, such as: San Luis Potosí, Querétaro, Durango, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Yucatán, Jalisco, and Coahuila y Tejas.
In Zacatecas, Santa Ana defeated Francisco Garcia, took 3,000 prisoners and let his army ransack the city for two days.
Federal General José Antonio Mexía marched from New Orleans to Tampico, but Santa Ana defeated him and executed every prisoner.
The Battle of the Alamo began FEBRUARY 24, 1836, when General Santa Ana’s 3,000 troops attacked 189 Texans and Tejanos at San Antonio.
In 13 days, all defenders were killed, including William Travis, Davy Crockett … Continue Reading:American Minute Feb. 24

Now that the Election of 2012 is heating up Barack Obama and his Party have to build some rationale for reelecting him. This process starts with developing a feel for just how much the halfwits who vote Democrat will fall for. Obama knows that in 2008 they fell for vague gibberish about “Hope and Change” without knowing who he is or what he really wanted to do to us. Now four years later even the dumbest among “Rev. Obama’s” flock realizes he has not delivered on his promises and they still don’t know who he is.
Consequently, it’s back to the drawing board. You can almost hear David Axelrod saying, “Send out Wasserman-Schultz and Pelosi to tell the dimwits unemployment is really going down the economy is doing great and the gas prices are up because Republicans won’t let the boss drill anywhere.”
Yesterday Obama spoke to a group of ill-educated clapping seals … Continue Reading:Testing how dumb they are, Obama tells college kids we can replace oil with pond scum

“Progressives” like to start an “Alinskyite” argument among free men and women to exploit their arguments of who is truly Christian. Of course, in the process, they obfuscate their own Baal worship with its child sacrifice, obsession with feces and worship of death.
As a lifelong Catholic, like Rick Santorum, and very appreciative of a repentant Newt Gingrich, I have stood the stones and arrows of fundamentalists and evangelicals accusing me and my faith as not being Christian. 2000 years of surviving one heresy after another and an infinite number of differences of opinion, I suspect God is working out his Covenant plan in spite of us.
As a (very) amateur theologian, I am also quite aware of the difference between Mitt Romney’s Mormonism and other Bible-oriented sects. I’m also aware of a wide range of beliefs among Christians, among Jews and among Muslims (heck, they even suicide bomb each … Continue Reading:Who’s a Christian?

The Panama Canal Zone was acquired by the U.S. for ten million dollars on FEBRUARY 23, 1904.
Planned by President William McKinley, construction on the canal began under President Theodore Roosevelt.
President William Taft stated in his Address to Congress, December 6, 1912:
“Our defense of the Panama Canal, together with our enormous world trade and our missionary outposts on the frontiers of civilization, require us to recognize our position as one of the foremost in the family of nations, and to clothe ourselves with sufficient naval power to give force to our reasonable demands, and to give weight to our influence in those directions of progress that a powerful Christian nation should advocate.”
President Woodrow Wilson, in his Thanksgiving Proclamation, October 23, 1913, stated:
“We have seen the practical completion of a great work at the Isthmus of Panama which not only exemplifies the nation’s abundant … Continue Reading:American Minute Feb. 23

Believing Willard Romney when he is talking about not forcing Catholic hospitals to dispense R U 486 pills is not easy.
During last night’s Republican Presidential primary debate in Arizona, Willard used strong unequivocal words to deny that as governor of Massachusetts he had forced Catholic hospitals to dispense “morning after” RU 486 abortion inducing pills which is against the moral teachings of the Catholic Church. Romney said, “No, absolutely not. Of course not. There was no requirement in Massachusetts for the Catholic Church to provide morning-after pills to rape victims. That was entirely voluntary on their part. There was no such requirement.”
Did Willard tell the truth? You decide.
On December 8, 2005 as governor of Massachusetts Willard Romney announced that private hospitals including those run by the Catholic Church would be forced by the power of the State of Massachusetts to offer emergency contraception to … Continue Reading:Did Willard just lie about forcing Massachusetts Catholic hospitals to dispense RU 486?
