October 10, 2014: An incident in suburban Maryland occurred this week that should serve as a wake-up call to all concerned mothers (and dads).

It Isn't Their Twenty-First Century, Mr. President!

Effects of Obama-Steyer Extremism on American Workers and Families
August 25, 2014: Last fall the United States began, for the first time in almost 20 years, to produce more crude oil than it imported. Around that same time, the International Energy Agency altered its previous predictions to show that the U.S. would become the world's number-one oil producer by 2015, producing 11 million barrels of crude a day.
