America’s Deadly Sins

by Deana Chadwell8/10/17
Most Americans are sick of self-righteous, breast-beating leftists moaning about the shame they bear for being American. They claim we have become wealthy “on the backs” of the “oppressed” – as if no American ever worked for anything himself. More » • (349 views)

Absolutely Nuts

by Deana Chadwell7/27/17
That phrase – absolutely nuts – pops into my head often when I read or hear the opinions of my leftist friends and acquaintances.
