By Congressman Steve King (R-IA) On or near this anniversary of the tragic date of September 11, 2001, as a nation we look book on that day. We all remember where we were at that moment in history when the tragic attack took place on the Twin Towers in New York, on the Pentagon, and […]
In the Reagan Library debate tonight, Ron Paul of Texas was asked how he would draw down funding to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In his response, he pulled another one of his everything-is-about-bringing-the-troops-home-or-getting-rid-of-the-federal-reserve moments: But I’ll tell you how we should do it. We’re spending — believe it or not, this blew my […]

When I first saw Governor Sarah Palin post on this I wasn’t sure exactly what she was talking about since I hadn’t heard about it. Then Josh kindly directed me to this Fox New article.
