Standing FIRM - Back in Action

After a small summer hiatus, we are back in the blogosphere, friends! A lot has happened in the past few weeks and there's no way to cover it all, but we will try to quickly catch up and be back on top of the current news of the day.

For now, there are a few major stories unfolding:

* Last week's raid in Laurel, Mississippi (which edged out Postville for the largest workplace raid in history)

* The DNC and it's message (or lack thereof) on immigration

* This week's RNC - we will keep you posted on how the immigration issue unfolds with the GOP
