Eleven ways to be a better American

July Fourth certainly is the most patriotic of our national holidays. American Flags, parades on Main Street, and bursting fireworks provide us with a spirit of pride and celebration. It is also a time to reflect on our rights and responsibilities as American Citizens.

Let's talk a bit about the great disenchantment

The BP spill won't destroy Barack Obama's presidency. It won't even significantly dent his standing in polls, if current trends hold. But it should mark the end of a period of unbridled liberal presumption that began with his rise in 2007.

Saving money easier said than done

When trying to find the bright side of a deployment, military spouses will often agree that the advantage lies in the extra income. Along with the obvious tax-free combat pay, there are extra pays, lowered interest rates on loans and credit cards and improved investment and savings opportunities.

We must uphold Declaration at all costs

"Decades later the Declaration of Independence was canonized as American scripture," the vinegary historian Walter McDougall writes of the nation's founding document, "but in 1776 it was generally read once - in army camps, taverns and village greens - cheered, and forgotten."
