Every Father’s Day, we celebrate our dads. We recognize all the things they do for us. We recognize the example they set through their work ethic, their character, their strength, their patience, and their love. In short, we celebrate the best qualities that dads have to offer.

The USA vs China & the World

If you just listen to all the hype about China. You’d be convinced they are going to take over the world. There’s so much talk today about their incredible growth rate and the power of their economy; we may forget just how good we are doing in the US. Yes, it is amazing how quickly the Chinese government has forced their growth pattern. They’ve literally flooded millions of people from their hometowns with the Three Gorges project and forced them to move to the city. They are relocating 250 million people, according to a NY Times report, from the countryside to the city, […]
