On the Right Side: Romania provides learning experiences
Being in Romania this last January has prevented me from keeping up with the political process back home. I can't wait to research and write about the Massachusetts Senate election and see how the liberals spin that one. Until then, I asked Radu Cristea, my good friend and the person most responsible for making the January-term trip so successful for the students, to write a little about his and our experiences. The trip would not have been possible without his involvement.

On The Right Side: Global warming is a hoax
Finally, the truth is beginning to be uncovered regarding manmade global warming "research." Sixty-one megabytes of confidential files from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit were released onto the Internet that exposed the lack of integrity and professionalism and the petty vindictiveness of the climate "scientists" who have been promoting the warming hoax for many years.

On the Right Side: Right-wing will regain advantage
It's hard to believe this column represents four years of writing for The Daily Star. That's more than 100 columns! I think I'll try for one more year so that I can get through the 2010 elections and celebrate all the election victories that will put the conservatives back in power, hopefully in both houses.

On the Right Side: Others more deserving of Nobel Peace Prize
Albert Schweitzer, the Dalai Lama, Andrei Sakharov, Anwar Sadat, Menachem Begin, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Lech Walesa and Elie Wiesel. These, along with many other deserving individuals, were the type of persons who used to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

On the Right Side: Right is winning war of ideas
Things are looking up for the conservative side of the Republican Party. No one could have predicted the overwhelming success of the two TEA parties held earlier this year. And then to top that success, we had the overwhelming turnout for the March on Washington on Sept. 12.

On the Right Side: Malpractice tort reforms needed now
In my last column, I listed many ways for Congress to move slowly, cautiously and responsibly in trying to implement some kind of health care reform. I'll try to use the next one or two columns to expand on those possibilities.

On the Right Side: Don't let truth get in the way
I had to wait to write this column until Obamas ego was assuaged by giving yet another prime-time campaign speech. He wanted bipartisanship, yet continually scolded Republicans and conservatives.

On the Right Side: Taxes OK if they are used well
Radu Cristea is a special Romanian friend from Cluj-Napoca and has been indispensable in the work I am doing there. It would have been almost impossible for me to have accomplished anything without his advice and unselfish assistance.

On the Right Side: Politicians should lead by example
It's hard to follow what is happening in the U.S. while being here in Romania, but it is quite easy to see that politicians are having a heck of a time trying to sell the idea of "Obamacare" to their constituents.

On the Right Side: Liberals must begin to wake up
One of the hard parts of traveling is finding the time to write my column. I have to admit, I'm a news junkie, and USA Today and some of the local papers just don't cut it.

On the Right Side: Too much government is a problem
Last Saturday, I attended a second local TEA Party. This one was held at Losie's on Oneonta's Southside. Once again, I was impressed with the organization of the event and the probably 200 normal, patriotic, good Americans who simply wanted to say they have had enough of too much government.

On the Right Side: How long till Obama is booted?
I'm wondering how long it will be before the word "impeachment" starts being bantered about? The list of reasons to expel Obama keeps getting longer and stronger, and this is only five months into his reign. Everyone knows about his inexperience. His rhetorical abilities made people overlook this weakness. Even his eligibility to have become president is becoming an issue.

On the Right Side: Cheney is in the right
I think the Democrats, Barack "shoot from the lip" Obama and "Queen" Nancy Pelosi, in particular, learned some valuable lessons recently. They learned the hard way not to go up against a Republican who has a backbone, experience, ethics, a protect-Americans-first philosophy and the truth on his side. That person is Dick Cheney.

On the Right Side: The military deserves more respect
Just a little more on the book ``Lone Survivor'' by Marcus Luttrell, Navy SEAL. He continues to describe what the military is up against. It gets very discouraging for them to pick up a paper and read about our politicians degrading the military. We all remember the Haditha Marines who were accused of murder. Jack Murtha jumped out front (with Kennedy, Kerry and Reid close behind), and with absolutely no facts, declared them guilty.

On the Right Side: SEALs deserve all of our respect
Last week, a student brought in a book for me to read titled "Lone Survivor," a No. 1 best-seller about the personal story of a U.S. Navy SEAL and his experiences in the mountains of Afghanistan. I literally couldn't put it down until I finished it. The review that follows will probably take two columns and then I can tie it all in with Janet "from another planet" Napolitano's Department of Homeland Security report that pointedly slanders our military forces and American conservatives in general.

On the Right Side: Don't let yourself get fooled again
Obama's continual incompetence is giving me so much material, I think I have enough for my next 10 columns. As much as I would like to begin to write about these weaknesses, I really have to write about the recent TEA (Taxed Enough Already) parties held in all 50 states April 15.

On the Right Side: Let's act against tax burden
Well, according to the Tax Foundation of Washington, D.C., Monday was tax freedom day. This is the date that, on average, we have paid off all levels of government for the year and can start keeping what we work hard for.

On the Right Side: N.Y. could learn from other states
What a difference 950 miles make. Anita has been researching potential areas for retirement and came up with a pretty intriguing option: Winchester, Tenn.

On the Right Side: Obama can't take criticism
I guess it should have been predictable. Disagree with Barack about anything and he sics his attack dogs on you.

On the Right Side: Obama can offer words, little else
Talk about having a love affair with himself. President Obama couldn't even wait 11 months to give his first State of the Union-like speech. So to massage his overwhelming ego, he decided to give it last Tuesday.
