War on Bake Sales is a War on the Family

And the best macaroons this side of the moon!

I remember many times when my children were small they would eagerly anticipate their birthday, any party and a bake sale at school. Why? Because those were the times when they… Continue reading

Is the War on Women Fake or Real?

It’s as if we are pulling the petals off the proverbial daisy with those who feel threatened chanting, “There is a war!” and those who don’t feel threatened shouting, “There isn’t a war!” until all the petals are gone and… Continue reading

Wising up to the Democrats’ War on Women

Democrats’ desperation has driven them to again manipulate women in a contemptible way. It started in Colorado, but we’re not going to let them play us again.

Will Mark Udall’s ‘War on Women’ Tactics Work?

Sen. Mark Udall’s campaign consultants must be scratching their heads. After months of paying for expensive ads focused almost exclusively on birth control and abortion, their candidate remains statistically tied with his opponent, Congressman Cory Gardner, in the polls. A… Continue reading

Sen. Udall, Freedom is Broader Than You Think via Denver Post

Fortune cookies and Mark Udall have more in common than Colorado’s Democratic U.S. senator might like to admit.

You probably know the juvenile prank of reading the message inside a fortune cookie — like, “Now is the time to try… Continue reading
