  • What do y'all think about the riots in Ferguson?

    11/26/2014 10:28:50 AM PST · by Jim Robinson · 237 replies
    What do y'all think about the riots in Ferguson? Rocks, bottles, bricks, Molotov cocktails thrown. Stores looted and burned. Private property destroyed. Cars burned. Churches burned. Smoke, tear gas. Gunfire, including from automatic (assault) rifles. Looked and sounded like a war zone. Dang. Almost as bad as those tea party rallies the DHS has been warning us about.
  • When the Republic Isn’t Worth Defending

    11/26/2014 6:57:34 AM PST · by Jacquerie · 46 replies
    I vaguely recall from Gibbon, or maybe it was from a high school class, that the Roman Empire didn’t go out with a bang. With a nod to Alaric and his Visigoths of 410 AD, there really isn’t a singular event to mark the beginning of the long slide. In broad strokes it is fair to say that Roman society declined together, simultaneously with government. For centuries, Roman citizenship was a precious possession, a jewel of unsurpassed value. As such it was held closely and kept in short supply, for among other privileges, the Roman citizen wasn’t taxed. He was...

    As we see rioters destroying downtown Ferguson and demonstrating in other cities, it occurs to me that the time is ripe for Republicans to offer their solutions to inner city problems. Black Americans have been beholden to Democrats since the 1960s, and has their lot improved? I do not have the statistics handy; I’ll let others work those up. But it is my impression that most inner city Americans are worse off in terms of lower incomes, higher unemployment, poorer education, greater dependence upon food stamps, etc. As I try to defend Republican policies on social media, my Democratic friends...

Additionally, ABC explains that the police officer felt helpless in the assault by Michael Brown. They quote police officer Darren Wilson as saying that he felt like a five year old taking on Hulk Hogan. NBC attempts to spread more hate, and start more fires...

I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me.

Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for Returning veterans. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans.

A Temporary Federal Restraining Order (TFRO) or a Motion for Federal Preliminary Injunction (FPI) can be filed today and obtained in about a week as part of a larger case filing. 3. Either a TFRO or FPI stops Obama's plan to legalize tens of millions of illegals; how? Stop and...

    A caller to the Rush Limbaugh show just pointed out the fatal flaw in the Obama immigration plan: Any illegal alien who signs up for a work permit, pays their fines/taxes, etc will automatically become a part of a data base that could be used to find them when the regime changes as it assuredly will someday. Since Obama's Executive Order does not carry the force of law and is not permanent, this list could then be used to find the illegal immigrants and depost them. Therefore no one will sign up for Obamas' work permit program.

    The United Kingdom Independence Party won the special election yesterday for the parliamentary seat of Rochester and Strood with the media saying that "immigration" was the top issue. The UK has been flooded with Eastern European workers allowed to emigrate there by the rules of the European Union. This has cheapened the labor market hurting working people and small business. UKIP has made Britain's exit from the EU the centerpiece of its platform. Its a clear distinction from the UK's version of the Republican Party.

The United States, Mexico’s northern neighbor, was significantly affected by the human dislocation that resulted: if someone did not want to fight, the only alternative was to leave the country—and over 890,000 Mexicans did just that by legally emigrating during the second decade of the 20th century….

The CRPD could threaten homeschooling rights and parental rights. It would surrender parents and caregivers’ decision-making ability on behalf of their disabled children to unelected and unaccountable UN bureaucrats. The CRPD would override existing state laws, seriously damaging states’ rights. The CRPD would surrender our nation’s sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats.
