Morgan: Rep. Broun part of the problem

I really wish they'd have told me something I don't already know. That was my response this week to a new poll by the Wall Street Journal's Washington Wire. In it, Congress gets a lower approval rating than root canals, cockroaches, head lice and colonoscopies. It could hardly get much worse than that. Those results follow on the heels of a December Gallup poll that found members of Congress beat out just one profession - car salesmen - in popularity. And just before New Year's, Rasmussen Reports polled 1,000 likely voters and found 69 percent rank Congress ...

He has hinted at taking action to institute tight restrictions on guns and ammunition during conversations with liberal foreign heads of state and United Nations representatives. He has openly supported the UN Arms Treaty which mandates international restrictions of small arms and ammunition. Hillary Clinton, his sitting Secretary of State, has been ...

Celebrate Recovery for the New Year

Christmas and the holiday season can bring hope, joy and peace. For some however, it can also bring sadness, regret and turmoil. All too often, we remember the past year or years of poor choices, broken relationships and missed opportunities.
