“Immigration reform” has NEVER been about immigrants, illegal or otherwise.
The Washington elites couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the actual people they’re moving around on their chess boards in the bars and coffee shops of Capitol Hill. It’s that moving about of people that they get off on.
It’s called Power.
It’s why it should be limited and carefully controlled, else it goes straight to power-holic people’s heads.
The Constitution failed when the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments (income tax, and direct election of Senators, respectively) were enacted. Those two amendments kicked the supports out from under the checks and balances that the Founders designed, and opened the doors for today’s out-of-control, illiberal, central command economy we’re getting.
Reminds me of a Monday night football game where they announced Here we are in Kansas City Kansas lol!!

Want Beck to come out with a space-opera TV show on the Blaze. Too much to ask to buy the rights to Firefly (although the basic vibe of Firefly is right down the alley for what he’s trying to do). I have ideas.
Your reasoning is typical in-the-box reasoning. Where you are wrong is believing falsely that Christianity and Judaism are religions! Religion is a word men made up to homogenize everything and make it featureless. What makes C & J different is they are relationships with the Creator. Does not matter whether or not you believe in a Creator the fact is when you read the bible from cover to cover, which is a book of books BTW, what emerges is how God relates to His creation and how His creation relates to Him.
When Jesus healed the man blind from birth by spitting on the dusty ground, making mud, and putting the mud on the man's eyes it was a model for the personal interest God has in your life and my life. Jesus told the man "Go wash in the spring of Siloam." It wasn't the mud, it wasn't the dust, it wasn't even the spring water washing his eyes because Jesus, at any point, could have said "You're cured goodbye." Jesus wanted the man to feel the discomfort of the mud and grit, to take part in the healing process, then tell others, which the man did.
Jesus is called the author and perfecter of our faith. Also the author of life. Only in modern times was DNA discovered to be like a coded program. Please do a search in Google on "The names of God" you'll learn a lot from that. Everyone else has a religion except C's & J's even atheists. "Now faith is proof of what is hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." The Spirit has directed me to say

I remember now why I seldom bother reading comments on Blaze articles . . .

Anybody else mis-read the note at first to say “Gannon is not going to the pogrom?”

Booker may need to be careful with this kind of reasoning. He just might wake up a Republican some morning.
and they should take a AD out attaching Anti Semite Ron Kook Paul.
Man, RP is not anti-semetic and everyone knows it. Seems to me, as I'm discovering, the biggest problem is there's just so much stuff out there to absorb, and all the racist crap always seems to be the most readily available. I just spent the past day ALMOST under the influence of some racist BS propaganda about the Talmud. If I didn't keep digging, I might have fallen for it. Misinformation is the problem, not RP. The local libraries suck compared to university libraries. Can't trust the news. Can't trust the internet, and I don't have the luxury of sitting in front of the stacks all day.
I can't prove that Ron Paul is an anti-Semite, but I highly suspect that he is, and he certainly does associate with a number high profile anti-Semites. But, what I can certainly prove is that quite a number of Paul's supporters are anti-Semites, and I've got enough of the insults, death threats, and insane conspiracy theories involving Jewish world domination thrown at me by Paul fans to prove it...
How can you prove that the posts you're referring to are from legitimate RP supporters? That's kind of the tactic I almost fell for. The haters on all sides seem more organized than the non haters.
This is thing about you Ron Paul fans; you tend to be the blindest followers on the planet. I mean that in the sense that if I pointed out a man dressed in an SS outfit holding an ‘elect Ron Paul’ sign, you’d ask if I’m absolutely certain that he’s really a genuine Ron Paul fan. Yet, every time that Romney is interviewed you’d demand that he was asked about Romney-Care (as he should be), but if Ron Paul is asked once about the newsletters that bore his name, you’d cry foul, and demand an apology… Can you see the ridiculous hypocrisy that is at play here?

Here’s how it breaks down, from a classical-liberal rights perspective:
1. The University of North Dakota has a right to call their sports teams whatever they want to call them.
2. The NCAA has a right to set the rules of behavior for its members, and the sanctions for violating those rules of behavior.
3. Others have a right to observe the behavior of UND and/or the NCAA and opine on that behavior.
These three rights are not intrinsically in conflict. They do however define certain cause-and-effect results which are highly predictable.
The essence of the problem as I see it is that UND wants to nullify #2 and #3. They want to have their cake and eat it too. They want all the benefits of NCAA membership without acceding to to the rules that the organization sets. (There’s an almost-forgotten right called “freedom of association” in play here, too.) The NCAA is not saying “You can’t call yourselves the ‘Fighting Sioux.’” They’re saying “If you do that, then these will be the consequences according to our rules.” The only conflict is that the UND community wants to keep their nickname AND mitigate/avoid the consequences.
If UND wants to be a full member of the NCAA, then they need to observe the NCAA’s rules. Should that be to onerous for UND, then no one is forcing them to continue their NCAA membership. There’s always the NAIA, for instance.

I would applaud the demise of Fannie and Freddie, if I wasn’t as sure as the sun rises in the east that Obama will use the opportunity to further pay off his cronies and political supporters.
I would also like to see the eventual demise of these programs, but they are so entrenched that they would have to be restructured & then phased out gradually so more people don't lose their homes. It could be done... But they won't do the right thing. They never do.

Please, oh please oh please, Blaze people—stop giving Maher the attention he craves. Stop reporting his stupidity. Cut him off. Turn your backs on him.

I’ll never be a Gibbs fan but I have to admit, he gets smallish dash of respect from me for actually blowing up on Garrett and MO–people who richly deserve a dressing-down from every single American citizen (preferably one at a time–ten minute maximum per American) for what they’re doing to this country.
