Congress is wasting their time and our money on the Benghazi hearings over the massacre of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. Instead of working on the real problem, they are playing the blame game, trying to deflect the responsibly for the murders. The Democrats are blaming the Republicans for failing to fund security at the embassies. Republicans are blaming Secretary of State Clinton for failing to understand the threats and employ the appropriate security to protect the embassy.

"The President and I are determined to take action." So said Joe Biden following his appointment as chairman of a "Task Force" established by Barack Obama to recommend "solutions" to the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and other such horrific events.

Well, as predicted, Joe Biden has prejudicially produced massive "gun control" proposals.

Before Congress creates yet another useless special investigation committee and subpoenas me, I wish to come clean and confess.

I took steroids. Strong steroids. The kind that bulk you up and make you look like Stone Mountain. In my case, they just fattened me up, gave me rosy-red cheeks, and destroyed about half of my systems.

Intelligence is something that you are born with. That said, I've met some pretty dumb intelligent people. I've also met some very smart uneducated people. It is not how high a person's intelligence quotient is, but rather it is how well they are able to use the knowledge they have. This week I was shocked by a statement by Professor Judith Adler that her very intelligent "Generation Now" students were in fact poorly educated on basic geography.

Now that the fiscal cliff has been pushed down the road, the politicians are patting themselves on the back. They think it was a job well done. Well I disagree. They built a flimsy bridge over the fiscal cliff, but they are now headed full speed ahead into a financial abyss that will ruin our economy.

When I am faced with a problem, I prefer to address it right away. I do not like issues hanging over my head for a prolonged period of time when I know they can be solved quickly and easily. Congress, on the other hand, prefers not to solve problems. Even though our country faces the greatest financial crisis in a generation, Congress voted yet again to spend money we do not have. As we approach the so-called "fiscal cliff", they chose the easy path rather than creating a permanent solution.

Jim:

Dogs were a part of growing up in Jim Thorpe in the 1950s. We shared a back yard with my grandparents. Midway between our house and theirs was a dog coop with a pair of beagles. When I was five, my parents bought me a fox terrier we named Buttons. He was a frisky little guy, short of hair and springy of leg. He liked to run around the yard, while I shot plastic balls at him from a bazooka-like air gun. I don't think those balls had anything to do with what happened to him on Christmas Eve 1953.

The U.S. government and the media are at it again. The alleged "Fiscal Cliff" is constantly being talked about these days. They say that if a deal is not made before January 2, 2013, the 10 year old "Bush Tax Cuts" will expire for everyone and $1.2 Trillion will be "cut" from the national budget over the next 10 years, half from defense spending and half from domestic spending. As for the "spending cuts", that's only $120 Billion per year, $60 Billion from defense and $60 Billion from domestic spending, in a $3.8 Trillion budget for fiscal year 2013.

December 25th is the annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus the Christ. It is Christmas Day (Cristesmaesse, from old English, meaning "Christ's Mass"), which is the true reason for this season! Many traditions have been added to the celebration of Christmas through the years. Though attacks have been made on Christianity since 1776, it was not until 1947 when, out of thin air, the United States Supreme Court took a major step toward taking God out of the public square by holding in EVERSON v. BOARD OF EDUCATION, 330 U.S.

This Christmas season was marred by the murder of 20 children and 7 adults in a Connecticut school last week. While our nation grieves, there is no practical way to stop crazed individuals from committing this type of crime. The school had precautions in place but they could not stop a man armed with a small arsenal of weapons and enough bullets to take on an Army platoon. This was a heinous crime as bad or worse as previous massacres. Unfortunately, it is not the last time we will see a desperate individual commit mass murder.
