Since it is Friday, I’m trying to keep on the sunny side of life. Never mind the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in when the police are so emboldened as to pull this guy over in the first place…
But it is so nice when overreaching authoritarians get put in their place. They too quickly forget that they serve us. Instead they feed off of us and collect vast revenues by systematically “shooting fish in a barrel”. Then they want us to pay more tax dollars to hire more policemen to do ACTUAL police work.
Just received my Jury Duty summons. If I were on trial, I would definitely want a good, intelligent group of my peers (i.e. other middle-aged parents and business owners, etc.) making the final call as to my guilt or innocence.
This fact makes me want to serve as a juror.
At the same time, I bristle at the “summons”, which is on their schedule, not mine, and I bristle at the fact that my business is going to lose a ton of money while I am detained and unable to run it.
If they’re only gonna pay minimum wage (40 bucks a day or whatever) for jurors, then they should only be entitled to minimum-wage level talent.
I found this article that was interesting about this subject:
What do you all think?
To me, a disarmed soldier is the ultimate oxymoron. Apparently soldiers on military bases in our country were disarmed by Bill Clinton’s administration in 1993. All part of his famous “first 100 days” that caused Americans to wake up and sweep Democrats out of congress, thus forcing slick Willie to “play nice” during the balance of his tenure. How dumb is it that our own soldiers are SITTING DUCKS in our own military bases?
I enjoyed this opinion piece from today’s Wall Street Journal
Check out this article about an LAPD copy who is claiming “persecution” for being a Wiccan and having to, at times, be on duty at a place where, HEAVEN FORBID, people are praying!!!
You absolutely cannot make this stuff up.
Somebody please straighten me out here. Will somebody out there stand up for this poor abused man? Currently I am having tremendous difficulty sympathizing with his plight. I know it must be because I am an evil, cold hearted, hypocritical bigot with an unfair double standard…
Help me see the light!
“WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has turned down an appeal from a commercial photography business in New Mexico that objects to taking pictures of same-sex wedding ceremonies.
The justices on Monday left in place a state Supreme Court ruling that said Elane Photography violated a state anti-discrimination law when it refused to work for a same-sex couple who wanted pictures of their commitment ceremony.
Elane Photography co-owner Elaine Huguenin said taking the photos would violate her religious beliefs. She said she also has a right of artistic expression under the First Amendment that allows her to choose what pictures to take, or refrain from taking.”
Three cheers for the President. He is showing this cattle rancher who’s boss.

Every time you turn around you hear stories about various federal agencies stocking up on hollow point ammunition and armored vehicles. Here’s a related story. These people are not arming themselves to protect us, they are arming themselves against us.
Check out this 5 minute testimony to Congress by the director of the ATF. A lady with an FFL license tried to begin a tea party group and filed for 501(c) status. She was apparently immediately swarmed by four different federal agencies including the IRS and ATF.
See the above article. Christians are being persecuted by Muslims at an unprecedented rate in the middle east. Sounds like this “Arab Spring” that the media liars claimed was toppling dictators and bringing positive “democratic” change to the Muslim world is just an excuse to make war against Christianity. The only “change” so far is that nations that were once friendly with Israel are no longer friendly and that nations that once protected their Christian minorities are now persecuting them like crazy.
Of course the current administration is still lavishing BILLIONS in “foreign aid” and tons and tons of free military equipment on these nations without interruption.
Here’s a question: how can we as Christians be patriotic and send our children into the US military to follow the orders of this commander-in-chief who absolutely works against and opposes everything we believe and stand for? How can we continue to root for the US on the world stage when the US has been hijacked from the inside by people committed to its destruction? Am I wrong? Some of my sons best friends are graduating from West Point this year. I shudder at the thought that these wonderful young men are going to take their orders from this Administration.
The town of Greece, NY opens their town hall meetings with a prayer led by various citizens and religious leaders. A citizen was somehow “offended” by this. Although the supreme court ruled in favor of legislative prayer 1983, somehow today’s court is revisiting the question. Last week a federal judge, inexplicably and in advance of this ruling, ordered a county supervisor in Maryland to cease and desist from similar activity. The county supervisor told the federal judge she would not comply with his ruling. The Greece v. Galloway case is slated to be decided in June, 2014. What do you think? Do you think the establishment clause within the first amendment of the Constitution is being violated when legislative sessions at any level allow prayer? How should Christians react to efforts by the federal judiciary to silence public prayer? Is there any place or situations where you feel public prayer should be disallowed? Is there any place where you feel public prayer should be allowed?
