Trying to Get the Government to Free Public Employees from Having to Finance Democrats

This NPR story is worth listening to. Will the Supreme Court free us from public unions and end a way that the Democrat Party gets financing from the taxpayers? I almost don’t want to hope because I don’t want to be disappointed.

Rand Paul: Congress Passed the 1.1-Trillion-Dollar Budget without Reading It

Here is Paul Ryan implicitly admitting the budget process wasn’t done the way the Founding Fathers intended but swearing Congress will change their ways next year. Paul Ryan failed to mention that Congress passed an anti-Fourth-Amendment bill to empower more spying on the American people.
