    Don’t you get it? They’re just offering their “protection” from those who might try to hurt you! This is really an offer you can’t refuse! I didn’t realize Al Capone sat on their board!

    “That’s the biggest scam in the Bay Area,” John said.
    Wrong, Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer are in a tight race for that honor.

    The feeling of peace had more to do with capitalism and free commerce in Dubai. I imagine that feeling will wear off once they learn about the whole “you have to blow yourself and unsuspecting innocents up to please Allah” thing.

    Exactly, which is why the comment attributing this success to the current administration is so puzzling. Don’t you remember who made you ride with the Russians in the first place? What a tool!

    What a total cop out. Get it?

    I’ve been there. The one thing weighing heavily in his favor is that any jerk who wants revenge now knows it won’t come without a fight! It’s not a fun way to live (with someone you know wants to harm you in retribution), but most of the people who act this way are much less brave when they know you’re armed and you know how to and are willing to kill. I think he was unwise to allow them to show his face on the news so the bad guys can find him more easily though.

    The unfortunate truth of this situation is that there will be no justice and they will keep lying, cheating, and killing until the people make them stop. That won’t happen until the people themselves are engaged and honest, neither of which is true, collectively speaking. Work on your friends and neighbors because that’s the only hope for this country to survive without massive casualties.

    In other news, the NFL began drafting a background check rule to apply to players this year, in the wake of multiple bad PR incidents involving players’ brutality to family members and animals. The rule, however, was abandoned when league research indicated that only 14 players on current NFL rosters would actually pass a background check.

    Maybe not with direct handouts, but by getting out of the way and deregulating so small businesses have a fighting chance at qualifying for larger contracts.

    By rejecting the notion that there are limits to who must be afforded the protections of the Constitution, you have stripped us of the ability to fight wars in a way far worse than Obama has already managed to. By your reasoning, everyone must be read Miranda rights and be given due process before we can shoot at them on the battlefield. The Constitution isn’t a grant of rights, it is a document describing the restraints on our government’s ability to infringe on the rights of We the People of the United States of America, not a restraint on what it can do to anyone, anywhere.

    Lamoni,
    Weapons should not be regulated. Taking any weapon from a law abiding citizen accomplishes nothing. In fact, it creates less safety because at least if the good guys have them, there’s the threat of mutual destruction. You’re deceiving yourself if you think the bad guys don’t have nuclear/bio/chem weapons.
    Regarding tax systems, the simple truth is that you have a principled system or you don’t. Both the fair tax and the flat tax are principled and can’t be manipulated if kept pure. Anything else will inevitably degenerate into what we have today, or worse. I should have added option 3, which is go back to the Constitution’s approach, which is to apportion the tax between the states based on population and let them sort out how they want to do it, avoiding the direct capitation tax.
    Your point on occupational licensing is self-contradictory, so you should read it again and think about it. I am a member of a licensed profession, and I’m honest enough to tell you that occupational licensing is merely cartel behavior. Anyone who tells you that it’s about making sure your doctor/lawyer/hairstylist/whatever is competent is lying to you. There are plenty of licensed and incompetent professionals, and you would see the emergence of private qualifications that are more effective in the absence of government force (see ISO standards for one example).
    I agree that our rights come from God, but the problem is that the Constitution has a scope clause in the preamble. War is war.

    How to know if the country is run by idiots: any regulation of weapons, anything but a flat tax or fair tax, any place that has occupational licensing, any place that reads Miranda rights to foreigners.

    It’s dangerous in the sense that it exposes the ruse leftists have worked hard to enshrine. They don’t want you to know that Christianity has the solutions to the problems society faces today. That undermines the moral equivalence they’ve worker hard to build.

    Simple solution: video record all interactions with the IRS and then post the videos and all written correspondence on your website. Cockroaches hate the light.

    Article is wrong, “conquer we must” is part of the Star-Spangled Banner, just in the 3rd verse that nobody sings. Words below (which will drive libs nuts):
    And thus be it ever, when free men shall stand
    between their loved homes and the war’s desolation.
    Blessed with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land
    praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    and this be our motto: In God Is Our Trust,
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave,
    O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave!

    Incidentally the best verse of our national anthem.

    This does present an interesting conundrum for the government: there is an aspect of human life that is unregulated in some respects, and they hate that. The problem is that government is too inefficient to act quickly to curb this dangerous freedom that has been discovered. And for the cherry on top, it has to absolutely kill them that someone else has the same capacity they do to spy on others.

    Don’t worry, it was only late-term abortion!

    I think it’s funny that they focus on their ability to attack us overseas, as if that’s the greatest threat they pose! Is there anyone who doubts they’ve already arrived here and are planning something already? The only question is when and what. I also think our fixation on air security is silly, because they’ll just find a new approach.

    I wish the problem was as simple as SEIU not understanding economics. They’re too smart for that, which leads to the conclusion that they are evil, and actually want suffering because it leads to power and greater wealth for them. Be very wary of anyone who uses force for anything other than repelling assaults on individual liberty.

    Besides, it’s completely racist to ask people to prove identity and citizenship status, right?
