    Wasn’t Eisenhower stuck with a Democrat majority? How do they give ownership of the high rate in the 50s to Eisenhower?

    The obvious and immediate need for a victim is to stop the attacker(s). If you only have your fists, you use your fists. If you only have a 2×4, then that is what you use. If there is ever is a need to protect yourself or your family, the ownership of better defense tools is certainly not unChristian. Our best defense is to establish and maintain a society where people live by a Christian principled moral code no matter what their faith status is (and I advocate faith in the source of the principles and moral code), but as long as there are people hostile to all of that and to the life and rights of their fellow citizens, self preservation of a criminally selected victim is best served by ownership of firearms.

    JIC, You speak like a product of the public education system or Progressive HQ.
    The man was an abolitionist with a strategy to liberate all, but I assume that you may be yet another believer in the politically driven negative America narrative about our founders and in the Jefferson/Hemings false media report that is now expanded and advanced as absolute truth in our schools and even at Monticello … coincidentally since Bill Clinton’s immoral behavior needs some kind of comparative buffer to market a positive legacy.

    I saw him twice as well; once in Newark, NJ and once in New Brunswick, NJ. Each show was very unique, highly personal and had a massive aura of pure Americana. It was glaringly obvious that I was seeing and hearing a piece of history passing before my eyes and ears. BB was a humble man who took time during each show to stop a few times and just talk. It was almost like we were all at the dinner table listening to autobiographical stories and musical experiences. I’ve been to probably over 100 concerts from Boston to Journey to Steve Winwood to Eric Clapton to Deep Purple to Van Halen, UFO, Aerosmith, Johnny Winter, Elton John, Les Paul to multi band line ups including one with a Zeppelin reunion and one with Clapton, Beck and Page …… NOTHING equates to experiencing the Americana, celebration and historic presence of BB King in concert. He was a likeable, humble man with great and powerful talent that is so much better in in person than on video, but we are extremely fortunate to have the video and recordings now that he is gone. One more iconic American cultural pillar has fallen. RIP.

    Greta has been called a left winger, but she’s still pretty damn hard on the Democrat BS that’s been going on in Congress and the Whitehouse. She has credibility in my book.

    I left the author of this out in error …. THOMAS JEFFERSON . “The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.”

    John Adams – “The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the law of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If “Thou shall not covet,” and “Thou shall not steal,” are not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society, before it can be civilized or made free.” – “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

    Sam Adams – “No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.”

    Article 3 of the North West Ordinance Ratified by the 1st US Congress and signed by President George Washington says “Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.”

    BENJAMIN RUSH – “The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments….We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws.”
    ‎ John Jay –“ It certainly is very desirable that a pacific disposition should prevail among all nations. The most effectual way of producing it, is by extending the prevalence and influence of the gospel. Real Christians will abstain from violating the rights of others”.
    “The practice of morality being necessary for the well being of society, He [God] has taken care to impress its precepts so indelibly on our hearts that they shall not be effaced by the subtleties of our brain. We all agree in the obligation of the moral principles of Jesus and nowhere will they be found delivered in greater purity than in His discourses.”
    G Washington “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained”

    Good ideas. The void needs not just another presentation of stories, but the explained application of them in America’s founding with the necessity of that for liberty & rights protection. Tie the founders words to the lessons of Gospels & of the 10 commandments & emphasize the importance of each individual’s self-governance, virtue & morality. Open the show with quotes like B. Franklin “Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters” . Stronger masters= less liberty & more cost. Tie quotes to the “principles” of the Gospel. Appeal to ALL by explaining freedom of religion, but also the truth in results when individuals maintain lower burdens & less need of masters & dependency through adherence to these principles. I believe that the results of this self governance points to wisdom greater than man’s, but principles & success may enlighten the faithless through experience. Use news stories such as this year’s FLA spring break crowd whose lack of self-governance brought greater restrictions/less liberty for future spring breakers. Use the baby daddy dependency, the caught in the debt ridden, burdensome dependency lifestyle as examples. Explain how Thou shall not covet or steal equates to voting, government funded perks sold as “rights”, redistribution of wealth, property rights &that loving thy neighbor as thyself means that YOU as an individual helps, donates, volunteers etc.. Explain American principles.

    That is the law that prohibits infringement nationally, but many State Constituiontions also hold their own exclamation points.
    A few examples:
    New Hampshire STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION – Part 1, Article 2-a
    “All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property, and the state.”
    ——————–
    Pennsylvania STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION – Article 1, Section 21.
    “The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.”
    Connecticut STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION – Article 1, Section 15.
    “Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.”
    Maine STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION – Article 1, Section 16.
    “Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned.”
    West Virginia STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION – Art. 3, Sec. 22.
    A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home, and state, and for lawful hunting and recreational use.
    North Dakota STATE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION – Article 1, Section l
    “All individuals . . . have certain inalienable rights, among which are . . . to keep and bear arms for the defense of their person, family, property, and the state, and for lawful hunting, recreational, and other lawful purposes, which shall not be infringed.”

    This website still has a lot of browser crashing issues. It doesn’t matter what browser and this core i7 PC has just had a complete reinstall of the OS and is chugging along strongly.
    It seems to be even worse if I sign in to comment. I visit far less than I used to. There is only so much time to read news stories in the morning. If I spend it dealing with the issues of this site, my reading time is lost. Should it not work as well as Fox News or CNN sites by now? It has been years! Part of the problem seems to be ad related and my blockers now address those. Maybe there are other issues at play here too. Maybe they are … external efforts to intentionally create issues. I do not know, but this is and has always been the most frustrating website that I visit.

    In the past, America had leadership that made great efforts to explain and advocate Jude o Christian Principles/ The principles of Liberty to all …. from America’s children to the American Indian population. While faith has never been a mandate here, true American leadership knew and knows that the principles, character and virtue required to SELF-govern as an individual need to be a part of our entire population to maintain the greatest liberty. You can’t demand that others pay your way (covet thy neighbor’s goods) when you are able to provide for your own needs. That goes against the principles of liberty, weakens liberty, expands government and raises taxes. Needs are meant to be assisted by family, friends, charities, churches and lastly, local government. The Federal government is not to be pulled into it. Its powers are few and defined. You as an individual can and should love thy neighbor as thyself. Be charitable. Give of YOUR time, money and labor to assist others.Do not harm or disrespect the property, including the life and flesh of another. DO not kill. Do not steal. DO not demand that your neighbors redistribute their income/ fruits of their labor to provide you with perks that you can, but have not earned.

    Micromanaging collectivists who have the never ending desire to dictate, control & tax see all of that as a major obstacle that turns public opinion towards self governing & against “Progressive governing”, but American Liberty ALWAYS needs to be taught.

    OK. Well you heard this here first, but I expect that Hillary will not be the Democrat nominee. Joe Manchin will. Hillary will be the new Bob Torricelli, where there is just too much baggage and too many questions and enough people will hesitate to support her that her poll numbers will decline. As with Torricelli, the Democrat voters won’t care that their party was trying hard to hand them an ethically questionable candidate and they will accept a replacement with open arms. The Party will bring in Manchin as a supposed moderate, 2nd amendment supporting savior and he may actually succeed in convincing the voters who never learn to vote Democrat again unless the Republicans have smarter people than the ones who got Mitt Romney to stop being himself in the debates and they get some highly effective BS dismantlers to correct left wing media narrative that will be supporting Manchin. While Manchin with a firearm is much more believable than John Kerry with one, Manchin is still a Democrat and therefor still sympathetic to advocates of government micromanagement in place of liberty.

    Until someone authors and the Congress passes and a president signs a bill that says that All government office holders and employees must be subject to the exact same laws as the ones imposed upon We The People, Gowdy and Buck could take a picture in that spot with any firearm and have a case with a plethora of evidence that Congress has not been held accountable for any other failure to follow the people’s law and case law says that is precedent. We DO need to have that law passed by the way.

    Let’s take your anti religion & misogynistic sideshows out of this & just look at American Principles, Facts & rights, especially property rights. Some will dispute the time, but clearly, someone else’s LIFE arrives some time after conception. I don’t believe that a woman has the “right” to end someone else’s life. She is not the owner of that property, of that life or of the complete set of TRUE RIGHTS that are attached to some one else’s life. It is IN her body. It is NOT her life. It is NOT HER body! She has parental rights. The life is the property of someone yet to be born. All rights that come with that life belong to someone yet to be born. To end a life is murder. It is destruction of property. It is complete denial of rights. Women have rights as do men. They have free will & make decisions. NO ONE should have to lose their life, physical structure & all of their rights because a woman doesn’t want the responsibility that came as a result of what she did with her TRUE rights and liberty. Abortion is murder, not birth control & murder is no one’s “right”. Now you can bring debate on the issues of rape and on when it is to save the life of the mother, but I personally don’t believe that rights are generated by victim-hood. . When the mother’s own life is in danger and there is no way to save both lives, then I believe that the mom herself needs to make that decision. It is between her & God and I don’t envy the burden of having to make that decision.

  • April 17, 2015 at 6:07am

    I was actually referring to abortion when I commented on the destruction of millions of lives and of each and every right attached to those lives including the PROPERTY that IS that life, flesh & blood, but the Democrat Party is also destructive to many lives through their Voter Containment System that maintains status quo and dependency upon their control and expansions of government. Again, True American and Jude o Christian principled people should just remain calm and level headed, take the money and donate it to Jude o Christian/American principled efforts that work to correct the fundamental transformation of the United States of America. Speak out and lead. Use the voice, the money and the vote.

    First 3 thoughts?;
    1. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
    2. Love thy neighbor as thy self.

    3. Lead by example, take payment, donate to a church.

    While I do clearly relate to the sentiments of the letter, I do not agree with denying service to anyone on something like an auto repair because of their personal beliefs and practices.
    With the bar that high, I would have to deny service to Democrats because they intentionally advocate, advance and fund, with redistributed Taxpayer money, the destruction of millions of lives and of each and every right attached to those lives including the PROPERTY that IS that life, flesh & blood!. They have a stated practice of coveting their neighbor’s goods to redistribute. … for starters.

    I do understand those who refuse to help participate in an event that their faith says is a sin, but a plain vehicle repair doesn’t meet that bar.
    If the vehicle was covered in graphics that promoted an event that was religiously offensive, then I would side with the mechanic asking the owner to take it elsewhere.

    I can see a time coming when we will have a trend in businesses visually declaring themselves (with graphics) as Christian or secular businesses. I can see those secular businesses being run with no activism from a tolerant, liberty minded Christian public, but I would expect wrongly named “liberal” community organizers to intolerantly protest inside & outside of Christian businesses. That is where “Progress” can easily take us.

    Krauthammer I a very wise man and Rand Paul’s foreign policy IS closer to Obama’s than any other candidate, BUT it isn’t close to Obama’s foreign policy AND the Fox Pundits historically, largely line up behind the most wishy washy Republican candidate available. The worst likely contender will be Jeb Bush, who will stand out for having the most policies aligned with the Democrat Party and Left Wing “Progress” and I’ve already seen some FNC people side with him over conservative/libertarian/TEA Party voices.

    Well now I guess I suspect the motives and principles of Angie’s List. That is a two way street! It is even more suspicious since they feature a cross wearing woman in their ads …. but somehow oppose the rights protection of the faithful in a big enough way to relocate that investment in IA.
    Something stinks there.
    They want to appeal to and take money from the faithful, but don’t see an issue with recurring and potential infringement of their rights. I can read customer reviews elsewhere … FOR FREE!
