Townhall: "Why don’t we just cut right to the chase, and write a law instructing would-be mass-shooters to report their intentions well ahead of time? Or, heck, we could just outlaw the act of killing innocent school children. And I’m sure criminals, owners of illegal weapons, and potentially dangerous sociopaths will be more than happy to follow along with such equally ridiculous legislation.

The United States of America was once a land of laws and not of men. Obama and the Democratic Party have changed all that, possibly forever.

"Duck Dynasty's" Phil Robertson is not alone. He's the latest in a long, long lineup of politically incorrect targets of the left's sensitivity mob.

It's extremely rare for Elizabeth Warren to ever have a good idea, but she may have stumbled upon one here. The American people are plagued with far too many intrusions into our private lives by both government & business.

Jared Thornburg was ticketed for driving a defective vehicle in Westminster, Colorado. He didn’t pay the $165 fee he owed, because he couldn’t afford it. So the local court sent him to jail instead. Linda Roberts couldn’t pay the $371 in fines and fees for shoplifting $20 worth of food while she was out of work and homeless.
"If More People Knew The Secrets Those In Power Keep From Us All, We Would Toss Them Out On Their Ear"
This is the title of a posting on Facebook which I agree deserves wide exposure. The theme is not new, it occurs repeatedly on this blog in one form or another. It is a theme known to many bloggers and readers but not understood by the "masses".
