Last night I attended an excellent continuing study of The 5000 Year Leap presented by Jim Logan and the Pearland TEA Party. It is eye-opening and riveting. Our next session will be held on Tuesday, October 8 at 6:30 pm. I was able to talk with Josh Daniels, who works for Congressman Pete Olson, after the event about some statements he made about Congress.

On December 7, 1941, Japanese war planes bombed the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Six decades later, Al Qaeda terrorists flew hijacked airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
