We need more Thomases. Christians need to be engaged in their lives and not just let someone else do their work to change how our society works — http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/12/thomas-undoubted/

My position on pot! I tend to agree with this article. This is an issue of personal responsibility but we should go slow. People are not all ready to understand this and we will end up having the responsible patting for the irresponsible. – again!—http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/10/pot-politics/

Employee Rights Act — http://o.dailycaller.com/all/2014-01-10-the-employee-rights-act-will-help-make-sure-unions-earn-worker-support#1

Time to get the federal government out of our businesses. Public private partnership are all about getting a private company to do the public governments bidding – for a price! It is NOT freedom and liberty. Somebody is hurt in this process — http://politichicks.tv/column/insider-says-usa-federal-technology-agency-using-communist-china-model/

Tea Party Italian style — http://www.teapartyitalia.it

Piers Morgan agrees with Dana Loesch. Someone at CNN must have finally gotten the message that alienating conservatives and libertarian by supporting government efforts they find criminal must not be good business —http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/13/cnns-piers-morgan-defendstheblazes-dana-loesch/

Great quote: “The exercise of power is the absence of choice” — “Our definitions of liberal and conservative change over time, to say nothing of political party agendas.  At the moment, what we refer to as “liberalism” is dedicated to the expansion of government power, which inevitably means the attenuation of liberty.  You can’t have that both ways – a bigger government means less freedom. ” — http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/10/in-search-of-liberal-browncoats/

Hillary’s Hit List – “so our friends cab be rewarded and our enemies punished” — http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/13/hillarys-hit-list-new-book-alleges-secret-database-of-those-who-have-crossed-the-clintons/

Great video on gender pay gap – the simple averages don’t tell the truth. Get the facts so you can be smart about your views — http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mH4lb88DMeo&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DmH4lb88DMeo

Crony Capitalism in America – new book must read — http://www.againstcronycapitalism.org/2014/01/crony-capitalism-in-america-2008-2012-chapter-18-public-employee-unions-crony-capitalism-at-its-most-blatant/

Wow, I hope this is not true. — http://www.onenewsnow.com/media/2014/01/09/soros-media-group-reaches-deep-into-taxpayers-pockets#.UtX4xn-9KK3

The sudden rhetoric about income inequality is a planned media blitz to influence opinions only. The arguments voiced publicly are postured by nearly all those with a loud public voice.  The market is far more powerful in providing true solution to poverty. — http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-war-on-poverty-kept-poor-people-poor-20

Interesting ideas on avoiding the need for health care instead of just finding ways to pay for it —http://www.marketwatch.com/story/10-prescriptions-for-president-obama-to-fix-obamacare-2014-01-08

The rule of law may be more important than seeking justice for a guilty man set free. Preventing the political acceptance of double jeopardy is critical to maintaining the integrity of the rule of law. Tough trade off if you were the victim! — http://reason.com/blog/2014/01/15/why-the-cops-who-beat-kelly-thomas-to-de

As I have said to many people nullification is a fascinating concept to watch. When all 3 branches defy the will of the people in a state who see their rights as different than federal law dictates, what do they do?

What does one do when terms of agreement are constantly changed? – “We’ve all seen Google, more and more, giving and taking on the change of terms of service agreements we have no choice but to accept.” — http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/15/the-google-trap/

 

Global warming will never be a consensus political issue. Is it even a consensus scientific consensus. The is apparently not true either! — http://touch.humanevents.com/humanevents/#!/entry/the-bbcs-green-propaganda-coverup,52d4633b025312186cb76725/1

 

Any opinions? “Therein lies my concern, though. Letting the chips fall where they may could lead society to pick up the pieces of shattered lives. Largely, the same class of people now most invested in and vocal about drug legalization in the United States are the same who advocated the loosening of sexual mores during the sexual revolution of the late 1960s and early ’70s. The white, upper income, educated elites had a lot invested in breaking down social mores in their pursuit of unchecked and unbridled hedonism.” — http://www.redstate.com/2014/01/10/pot-politics/

 

So funny, but true in some certain twisted sort of way. A program started with good intention (or not!) gets corrupted by politicians making promises to people who actually vote! — http://www.conservativeoutfitters.com/blogs/news/11608053-video-jimmy-kimmel-attacks-obamacare-and-uninformed-young-people-who-support-it

Intriguing development – what do you think? — http://www.scpr.org/news/2014/01/13/41558/lapd-officers-to-be-equipped-with-lapel-cameras-by/

 

I do say that I agree with much of this. — http://www.theobjectivestandard.com/blog/index.php/2013/09/video-social-justice-is-an-assault-on-justice/

 

Absolutely true (in my humble opinion) – “The Common Core represents the ideas of several national organizations (of governors and school officials) about what and how children should learn. It is the thin end of an enormous wedge. It is designed to advance in primary and secondary education the general progressive agenda of centralization and uniformity.” — http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/george-will-doubts-over-common-core-wont-be-easily-dismissed/2014/01/15/68cecb88-7df3-11e3-93c1-0e888170b723_story.html

 

People generally act in concert with their own moral code so what are some those codes – interesting chart to study!

This lady dropped off the airwaves many years ago and resurfaced recently on the Blaze network. I liked her then and now. She introduced herself on the Blaze as “My name is Laurie Duhe and I am an alcoholic” – Classy lady dealing with addiction speaks to the issue! — http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=aqDJQ57rNVw&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DaqDJQ57rNVw%26feature%3Dyoutu.be

I am a proud Tea Party constitutionally limited government guy. That means that both the Welfare Party and the Warfare Party have to cut back. I work in the defense industry but it has become too big and driven by politics within congress and not by our national needs for defense of the USA. – “As the article points out,  many Republicans have finally come to see that the military is big government too. That being for fiscal responsibility means reigning in the defense contractors just as much as it means reigning in bloated social programs. This frustrated McKeon. He was used to the GOP just voting for anything which was nominally “defense.” — http://www.againstcronycapitalism.org/2014/01/house-armed-services-committee-chair-mckeon-acknowledges-tea-party-tactics-influenced-retirement-decision/

Hard core environmentalists don’t defend the environment to protect the environment.
