America heard only platitudes and excuses from Barack Obama, clearly a lesser man, as he announced his decision to cancel America’s planned return to the moon later in this decade. Claiming that the current program was “over budget, behind schedule, and lacking in innovation” (as if cost, schedule, or innovation were ever precepts of the Democrat/statist agenda) he suggested that some other celestial target, such as an asteroid, might represent a more worthwhile venture.
On Memorial Day, we commemorate all the U.S. soldiers who've died while serving our country. With so many of our servicemen and women currently on dangerous overseas assignments, it's also a time to think about their sacrifice, and the sacrifice of their families back home.
In these videos, families of soldiers get the surprise and relief of a lifetime when their loved ones return home from duty unannounced. You'll really want to grab a box of tissues before watching.
Most of the slide debris has been removed from US 26-89 in the Snake River Canyon southwest of Jackson, but significant work remains to improve drainage and repair the highway before it can be reopened. Completion of the debris removal revealed the full extent of a trench the slide debris and water cut across the highway. The trench measures as much as 50 feet wide and seven feet deep. WYDOT District Engineer John Eddins says the trench eroded across the road is in the same location we knew we were going to have to put in a large drainage pipe, and it’s wide enough that we could divert the water and debris flow to the east side of the trench and prepare a bed for the drainage pipe on the west side. Crews planned to install the pipe late Thursday. Work also will be required to channel the water and debris still flowing above and across the road into the pipe.
Texas Governor Rick Perry, a bold and unapologetic conservative, represents a glimmer of hope in an otherwise discouraging Republican field. Word that Perry is contemplating a run for the White House has electrified those in the grassroots who are watching the situation closely.
Several state agencies and WellDog announced that they have initiated a pilot program to locate and qualify natural gas possibly overlooked by coalbed methane operators in Wyoming's Powder River Basin. The agencies include the Wyoming State Geological Survey, Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission and the Wyoming Office of State Lands. The program involves using WellDog's GasSpotter technical services to locate and quantify gas in abandoned and distressed properties. They will also use the Wyoming State Geological Survey's isotope enrichment services to qualify whether or not the gas can be produced.
The Vandehei Interchange is open. Full access for motorists will be allowed through the Memorial Day Weekend. Wyoming Department of Transportation spokesman Ross Doman says the interchange bridge, two roundabouts, and ramps took 46 days to complete and only one short detour remains on the schedule.

Accountability for all political office holders, from the national down to the local level in the smallest townships, is key to any restoration of the greatness of America. And those who strive against it, regardless of the party affiliation they find most convenient, must be relegated to the ranks of “unfit” to hold office, whether they be wolves in sheep’s clothing, or are merely naive and sufficiently unprincipled to sacrifice their core values for a proverbial “place at the table.”
