Yesterday, the United States Senate unanimously passed an outstanding bipartisan adoption bill called the "Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008" and sent the bill to President George W. Bush for his signature. The bill passed in the United States House of Representatives on September 17th.

The National Council For Adoption (NCFA) worked hard to pass this bill which will result in increasing adoptions in America. The President and Chief Executive Officer of the NCFA, Tom Atwood, said: "This is the most significant legislation relating to adoption and foster care since the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997. It provides for a wide array of reforms to benefit children and their interest in adoption...."

The NCFA...

Because parents all around America are finally waking up as to the trash that is called prime-time-television on CBS, NBC, ABC, etc. and are actually doing something about it -- such as writing to complain to advertisers -- Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) reprimanded its advertising agency for buying commercial time on a program which was not family-friendly. The show which caused many parents, and indeed, KFC local managers, to complain is the television show called 90210.

According to the Parents Television Council (PTC,) many of the owners of local KFC franchises and the managers which work for them were outraged that their company would sponsor such a show. Specifically, the parent company of KFC, the YUM Brands company, reprimanded its advertising agency for buying...

Congressman Walter Jones, a Republican from North Carolina, has done a wonderful job promoting legislation enabling America's clergy to talk about whatever issue they want from their pulpits. One of his bills during the last Congress was called the Houses of Worship Free Speech Restoration Act which actually received around 175 votes during the 108th Congress.

Congressman Jones' legislation was and is necessary because liberal groups have been trying to muzzle our ministers, priests and rabbis from speaking out on any issue they want and from talking about the positions on issues taken by political candidates and incumbents. What these liberal groups are trying to accomplish is clearly unconstitutional and against the First Amendment rights of America's...

Greed and gross negligence on Wall Street and political pandering in the United States Congress led to the financial crisis which America is experiencing right now. This is of course not to let off the hook those who built McMansions they could not afford nor those who should not have bought homes in the first place because they did not have the financial resources to afford a home. Now, the 95% of those who are paying their mortgages on time will have to pay the price for these irresponsible Americans on Wall Street, in Congress, and indeed on Main Street. The new president and the United States Congress must never let this mess happen again.

Today, the Senate Republican Leader, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the...

When one returns to his alma mater at West Point -- for a Hall of Fame dinner (this year 3 friends were inducted into the Hall of Fame including a classmate, Mike Silliman, Class of 1966, inducted posthumously, who played for Army basketball coach Bobby Knight; was team captain on Knight's 1968 gold-medal-winning Olympic team; and played at West Point with Army basketball player and now Duke University's coach, Mike Krzyzewski, Class of 1969, coach of this year's Olympic gold-medal winning team) or to attend an Army football or hockey game -- it is always informative to check the local weekly newspaper near West Point, the "Times Herald-Record" (Middletown, New York.)

On Friday night in Eisenhower Hall, former Army Basketball Coach Mike...

The Republican Leader in the Senate, Senator Mitch McConnell from Kentucky, delivered a statement on the Senate floor on Wednesday regarding the economy and the need for a bipartisan approach to financial security:

“Families all across America are concerned about their financial security. As Congress, the administration and Federal Reserve consider the appropriate measures to strengthen our capital markets, I believe it’s imperative that we do so in a bipartisan manner.“Now more than ever is the time to rise above politics and work together. Our constituents don’t want campaign speeches and hyper-partisan accusations - they want security for their home and savings. They want energy security and lower costs for gas and oil. And they want protection from future...

The conservatives and pro-gun moderates in the United States House of Representatives yesterday overwhelmngly passed a bill to protect the Second Amendment rights of the people of the District of Columbia in line with the decision by the Supreme Court wiping out the onerous gun control laws passed by the left-wingers in the nation's capital.

Bush's press secretary, Dana Perino. In her statement she said:

 

The President strongly supports the Second Amendment Enforcement Act, which the...

It doesn't take a rocket scientist or even an abortion opponent of a pitbull with lipstick from Alaska to know that commonsense abortion restriction laws save lives, not only the lives of the innocent unborn children, but sometimes the young girls who are being forced or persuaded to have abortions. And parental involvement laws do save lots of lives.

Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama and vice presidential candidates Sarah Palin and Joe Biden need to be asked during the upcoming debates their positions on parental involvement laws regarding abortion.

Dr. Michael New reported in LifeNews.com today that pro-lifer voters should insist that candidates for office support pro-life parental-involvement laws. Dr. New said: "Such laws enjoy...
