Carry a Big Stick – Dr. George Grant

In my post Theodore Roosevelt – Larger Than Life I completely underestimated the complexity of one of the greatest occupants of the American white house. Truly, I don’t think there could be a more complex person to write about. The oddest part of it all is that Teddy Roosevelt did not consider himself anything beyond…

Theodore Roosevelt – Larger Than Life

Theodore Roosevelt – Larger Than Life Author – Matt Donnelly Publisher – Linnet Books North Haven, Connecticut Over all a disappointing read, I’m not sure if it’s because I had high expectations of the author or Teddy Roosevelt.

TN Abortion Providers

What kind of vision would we have for TN if it did not include the basic right to light for all Tennesseans? It would not be freedom at all, but rather tyranny. Vision Tennessee sees a TN where all citizens regardless of size will be free and protected by law. When that happens the abortion…
