First Amendment Repealed

It's official. North Korea repealed the First Amendment. There's still time to save it but have we the will?

Sony Pictures pulled the movie North Korea found offensive from distribution. Apparently because the theater chains caved in the face of a verbal threat of terrorism.

So now we know, and so does the rest of the world, that American civil liberties are abandoned quickly and cheaply.

We seem to be on course for turning the justice system into a political kangaroo court and "free speech" into a mere slogan.

What are we fighting for? What do we really think is worth fighting for?

Are we so scared, so lacking in virtue, in integrity, in courage, that we allow our young men and women to be maimed and killed in the sandbox so government officials can take a bow and certain corporations can make a profit? And are we so fearful that we are unwilling to defend the Constitution here at home?

What is to be done?

If I were President of Sony Pictures, I would release the offending movie to the whole world for free on the internet. And I would promote the hell out of it.

Next, I would start work on a sequel or a related comic satire of the Dear Leader.

Why do they riot in Ferguson?

Why do they riot in Ferguson?
What are they protesting?
What do they hope to achieve?
Do they want to destroy a cop, just to see if they can?
Do they want more black cops? Some black cops? All black cops?
What does the Left want?
Do they want a mob to convict an innocent man by proxy? Isn't that like - lynching?
Do they want cops to stop enforcing the law in majority black neighborhoods?
Do they want cops to let a suspected thief go - if he's a young black male?
Do they want government to just do what they want it to do, whenever they want it?
Do they want to a ruler instead of the rule of law?
Do they want government to put people on trial based on emotion instead of evidence?

Do I want to live in THAT country?

News Flash from Islam (Submission) - Sex Causes the Earth to Move!

"Many women who dress inappropriately ... cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes,” Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi told worshippers at a Tehran prayer service.

Apparently, it’s not Global Warming at fault after all.

Health Care Reform Simplicity

The health care argument has been extraordinarily complex. When details are discussed eyes glaze over. When broad assertions are made they’re refuted by details quoted from the legislation. Many people don’t know what to think or who to believe.

Here are some simple questions you can ask and answer for yourself. Your answers will tell you everything you need to know about the proposed health care reform.
If an insurance company denies treatment to a patient, the patient can appeal to the state insurance regulators and to the courts. If the federal government denies treatment where can the patient appeal?

If the government increases taxes on insurance polices and medical devices how will the costs of medical care go down?

If there really are 30 million people who aren’t getting medical care today - who will get care under the proposed model; how will an instant 10% increase in demand for medical services affect access to services for all?

If $500 billion can be saved by cracking down on Medicare fraud and abuse why didn’t the crackdown start last year?

If Medicare is now underfunded; how will its funding be improved by diverting $500 billion from Medicare to ObamaCare?

If Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid are all underfunded and either in deficit or projected to go into deficit; how will ObamaCare avoid that fate?

If Veterans Administration hospitals neglected wounded solders returned from Iraq and Afghanistan; how will quality be ensured in a much larger health care system run by the federal government?

If politicians control health care; will health care decisions be political decisions? Will access to health care be linked to political influence?

If Congress has the Constitutional power to force you to buy health insurance can they also force you to buy a Chevrolet?

Quote of the Day
“You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down; Up to man’s age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.
A Time for Choosing
Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004)
