This past Monday the Supreme Court, in typical fashion, issued its decree for the destruction of God's Holy Institution of marriage in America. By refusing a writ of certiorari, it condemned five more States immediately, and potentially all the remaining States in the union, to have sodomite un-marriage forced upon them. What is very significant in this is that this would be against the plain statements of those State Constitutions as well as State law, not to mention six thousand years of human Read more [...]
So now the New York Times is claiming that there were chemical weapons in Iraq all along. Wow.
But according to Reason.com’s summary, there are a couple of oddities about these weapons.
For one thing, these chemical weapons were kept secret. Soldiers claim they were even ordered to lie to Congress about them.
Soldiers who were aware of the discoveries were ordered to keep quiet about them, and even to mislead Congress about what they knew. "'Nothing of significance’ is what I was ordered Read more [...]
Record taxes mean that the Feds "only" added a half-trillion dollars to the national debt this year. Let's celebrate?
You know you're doomed when your Secretary of the Treasury takes a "victory lap" simply because the Federal Government devoured an all-time record of citizens’ hard-earned money—and it still spent half-a-trillion more than it plundered!

From the Washington Times: “Obama’s cash grab: Feds’ tax-take Read more [...]
The administration claims that it would do no good to ban travel from Liberia, but there are reasons to doubt their claim.
It is still not a time to panic, but the Administration has definitely brought us closer.
At the Washington Post website we read: “The ominous math of the Ebola epidemic.”
“The speed at which things are moving on the ground, it’s hard for people to get their minds around. People don’t understand the concept of exponential growth,” said Tom Frieden, Read more [...]

They accuse Federal interference of doing away with due process for those accused of sexual crimes at colleges.
I am tempted to scorn these Harvard professors who have been cheerleaders and architects for all sorts of usurpations of the Federal government in our lives. Let them drink their own medicine!
I do find it delicious that these Harvard profs are basically taking the same position as George Will!
But the fact is that the issue is so important I’d rather encourage these men Read more [...]
How is this multiculturalism working out for our culture?
In 2008, during Obama’s first national campaign, Barack Obama is on record saying that America is not a Christian Nation.
“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation - at least not just,” Obama said. “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation and a Buddhist nation and a Hindu nation and a nation of non-believers.”
He then continues by saying,
“I think it’s time we joined a debate about how to reconcile Read more [...]
First Amendment is dead, according to the Houston officials.
Have you heard what's happening in Houston?
The city government is demanding five pastors turn over “all speeches, presentations, or sermons related to HERO [Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, a measure the city council passed allowing men to use women's bathrooms and showers, and vice versa], the Petition [see below], Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality, or gender identity prepared by, delivered by, revised by, or approved by you Read more [...]
According to the Supreme Court, the people's grand jury is in effect a fourth branch of government.
The preamble to the US Constitution begins with “We The People, in order to form a more perfect union...”. For the first time in history, a People with God-given rights established a Government based upon those rights under the Rule of Law. America’s Founders examined the causes that led to failure of the great nations in history. They studied the great writers including Cicero, Read more [...]
Technically the answer to that question is yes. Lower energy prices have a downside for people who make more money from higher energy prices. Just like tailors suffered when the sewing machine was invented, or harvesters lost their income when harvesting machinery was invented.
But notice these were temporary disruptions. Ultimately, everyone became better off, including the people who originally lost income. Why? Because the cost of living went down for everyone. Everyone had cheaper clothing Read more [...]
Most transparent Administration in history won’t let Healthcare.gov reveal 2015 Obamacare rates until after voting in November.
Just how bad will the health insurance rates get in 2015? So bad that the Obama Administration is not going to tell you until November 15.
The Washington Times reports, “Obamacare website won't reveal insurance costs for 2015 until after election.”
Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who Read more [...]
Is enabling them to freeze their eggs a form of liberating women or enslaving them?
I don’t have a problem with the technology itself and I don’t have a problem with women holding down corporate jobs. But the fact that Facebook and Apple are providing for female employees to freeze their eggs seems potentially abusive.
I’m sure there are health issues confronting some women so that being able to collect eggs might be the only way they can assure themselves they have a shot at motherhood. Read more [...]
It is taken for granted that victims of Hurricane Sandy should get Federal help. Insurance companies cannot possibly be sufficient. Neither can private charity. Nor should people feel any additional pressure about where they choose to live. Floods and storms can only be dealt with by the Federal government and its amazing resources.
OK, but how is that working for you?
According to the New York Daily News, “Small businesses applying for federal loans to recover from Hurricane Sandy are Read more [...]
