“So, they had a nasty shooting in D.C. on Monday. I wonder how that can happen. I thought the liberals banned owning guns there. Another ‘gun free’ zone! Yeah the law abiding are disarmed while the criminals are free to mow them down. The liberal mind set baffles me!”
“It’s that time of year when politicians everywhere live on a food stamp budget for a week and then whine and moan about how hard it was. Guess what?

We as a society should be saying enough is enough.

As we mourn the loss of 19 of our courageous Firefighters, we should remember them all as our Navy Seals. They go to the front lines to fight the enemy. Our Navy Seals are the best of the best. The same should be said for our Hotshots that fight these tragic fires in our country. They are on the front line in a war with a deadly enemy. They are our warriors just like the Navy Seals. The Hotshots that died in this tragic fire were in a war fighting for all of us. The Hotshots still up there in that war we have to pray for.

The first of two similarly themed action dramas set for this year ("White House Down" arrives in June), "Olympus Has Fallen" will put to the test the question of whether American audiences are ready, 12 years after 9-11, to watch, strictly as disposable popcorn entertainment, a film in which the United States and some of its most prominent landmarks are devastated by foreign terrorists.
