On Memorial Day, the President has asked all Americans to take a moment of silence at 12:01 p.m. and remember our fallen heroes who died while protecting our nation.
If you find yourself at a loss as to whom you should be saying a silent prayer for, perhaps the list below will give you some ideas.
REMEMBER Casmir Pulaski, a Polish immigrant who came to the New World in 1771 at the behest of Benjamin Franklin. Pulaski was a renowned cavalryman who fought against the Russians in his home country before coming to America to offer his services in the cause of freedom.
In 1777,... Read More
We have all seen the news stories of horrific shootings in schools that take the lives of so many innocents. We are inundated with video from the scenes of mass murder perpetrated by those who have become judge, jury and executioner at former places of employment. Insane people randomly firing into crowds attract the attention of the media like moths to a flame, and the shooting of an unarmed teenager in Florida becomes the story that is played over and over again, as though it was the only incident of import that had happened during the news cycle.
None of us can begin to fathom the... Read More
With one click of a computer’s mouse, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg became one of the richest people in the world, if not in history when the company he founded became public last week. And as most know, Facebook was created among the confines of a Harvard dorm room utilizing nothing more but an ingenious idea, entrepreneurial drive to succeed, and discovery of a golden niche revealing the thirsty desire people have to connect and share their lives with others.

Attempting to deliver a final crushing blow to government help for the poor, the 2012 Republican Party voted in favor of Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan's Budget plan. Touting it as the most efficient way to bring down the deficit, these followers of fiction writer Ayn Rand would have the nation believe that cutting off all help for those with the least, and giving that money to the richest fat cats in the country, will somehow deliver us from the depression that was started by these very same hucksters.
Propaganda channels like Fox News tell their listeners that this is the most courageous... Read More

For India, America is like a recently married husband and Russia is like a Father. For past five decades, Russia stood by India in security and other foreign policy aspects, and has deterred the regional super power China or neighbouring Pakistan towards making any large scale misadventurous steps towards India combinedly, for several decades. In a word Russia has been protecting the India like father protecting... Read More
When I was a kid growing up in the suburbs of Dallas, one of the first moments I ever remember the topic of homosexuality coming up was during an episode of M*A*S*H*, that mega-popular sitcom starring Alan Alda and many other upcoming stars. The scene displayed a soldier afraid of going back to his military unit for fear of ridicule from his fellow officers, conveying his fears to the sympathetic ears of Hawkeye Pierce and Trapper John M.D. Liberalism was starting to come into the fold among television land back then (another example: Archie Bunker), so the writers made sure the character of...
