Denial of Truth

immigration

I’m listening to Sean Hannity interview Marco Rubio about the immigration bill. Everyone involved with the immigration bill is missing the key point: implementation and oversight.

Sure, Marco Rubio is a smart guy, but he’s not going to be administering or being held accountable for the implementation. What happens when the “smart guys” in the room aren’t around when some key aspect of the bill is ignored, either willfully or mistakenly.

They have to take into consideration the bureaucratic pitfalls in fashioning their bill. If not, we’re going to be left with another monstrosity that no one can implement or even follow.

This current immigration bill is a bad idea!

William L. Garvin: Brave New (Progressive) World

Baby in Womb

As our culture quickly coarsens and lurches towards its self-proclaimed, progressive utopia, proponents of traditional values see nothing but a contemporary version of hell.

Our Forbears

Don’t despair. Our forbears withstood much more than we can even imagine…all in the name of LIBERTY!

The Obama administration has reached its High Water Mark and it is only a matter of time until it is defeated!

Liberally educated people are skeptical of their own traditions; they are trained to think for themselves rather than defer to authority.” – The American Association for the Advancement of Science

Gene’s Nickle: The 5th Amendment

How many protections are covered in the Fifth Amendment?

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury1, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger2; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb3; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself4, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law5; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.6″

It can be difficult for those of us who respect and admire law enforcement officers to remember that interacting with police is usually the most basic form of governmental dealings any of us have. The 5th Amendment was not written to hinder law enforcement, but to constrain our federal government from over-reaching behavior.
