Welcome to my first daily news post.  Here are some of the things going on in the world today.

Another American, Steven Sotloff, beheaded by ISIL confirmed by the White House…

This is what happens when you constantly stick your nose in where it doesn’t belong.  Now we are stuck in a situation that is already a lose lose.  If we followed the constitution and advice of our founders, we would not have these situations.  It is sad that another innocent American has had there life taken due to our obsession with controlling the world.  All in the name of Freedom and paid for by the tax payers no less.

Ukraine announces cease fire?

It is best that we continue to keep our nose out of it.  I think so far ISIS/ISIL has kept us distracted from the Ukraine.  This whole situation has nothing to do with us or our national security.  I am glad to see there may be a peaceful resolution in the future.

SCOTUS Judge Scalia Once Pushed Death Penalty For Henry Lee McCollum who is now exonerated

Mistakes happen but it is always good to see an innocent man free.  The death penalty may not be unconstitutional  but it should be.  The government should never have to power to decide who lives or dies.  In this case an innocent man would have been executed because of a judges opinion.

And those seem to be the big issues of the day.  Check back with us again tomorrow.

Please tell us your thoughts on the issues of the day.
