“Quite clearly, then, we psychiatrists should work to discourage those adults who seek surgical sex reassignment. When Hopkins announced that it would stop doing these procedures in adults with sexual dysphoria, many other hospitals followed suit, but some medical centers still carry out this surgery. Thailand has several centers that do the surgery “no questions asked” for anyone with the money to pay for it and the means to travel to Thailand. I am disappointed but not surprised by this, given that some surgeons and medical centers can be persuaded to carry out almost any kind of surgery when pressed by patients with sexual deviations, especially if those patients find a psychiatrist to vouch for them. The most astonishing example is the surgeon in England who is prepared to amputate the legs of patients who claim to find sexual excitement in gazing at and exhibiting stumps of amputated legs. At any rate, we at Hopkins hold that official psychiatry has good evidence to argue against this kind of treatment and should begin to close down the practice everywhere.”
“Sometimes when the problem is big enough, you just have to start over. The tax code and our regulatory burdens are two good examples.
Fighting against unconditional, illegal powers that take away our rights, taken by previous Congresses and administrations is just as important.
I do not do this to obstruct. I do it to build something better, more effective, more lasting, and more cognizant of who we are as Americans.”
I have not heard a candidate for President articulate something this accurate, this timely, this necessary since Ronald Reagan saved the country from the Carter years. With Cruz’s betrayal on the TPP and the NSA, Rand is the clear favorite for me at this point.
Between a HDTV antenna and any one of a number of devices (My personal favorite is the Roku 3) you can cancel your cable TV subscription and not only save a lot of money, but defund the enemy at the same time…

Well, nuking Mecca would work pretty well. But this would be a very distant second I suppose.

From their website: “American Baptist College is a private historically black college where, since 1924, students have received…preparation for…social justice.” Tells you everything you need to know. You can slap the term “Baptist” on anything you want and it doesn’t necessarily make it so. Just ask Westboro.
Jesus never taught social justice; he taught individual justice. "The Son of Man will separate them one from another, as sheep and goats are separated." Matt. 25:32

You know, I’m a live and let live kind of guy. If you chose to be gay I’m not going to demand that you adhere to normal heterosexual standards of behavior outside your own home. But this crap is getting so far out of line that I’m starting to think that the only solution for these out and proud in your face ******** is to do some outsourcing – their execution to the Islamic state.

>The Federal Aviation Administration agreed to allow Southwest to fly planes that had not yet been inspected
So they’re grounding them, but not really grounding them.

Exactly right Ned. Genetic diversity insulates humanity from changes in the environment we live in (in the broadest possible scientific sense of that term, not some environazi caricature of it). Then there’s the law of unintended consequences. Really bad things happen when you play God without His knowledge and character.

Couldn’t be more disappointed by Beck’s paranoid pro-homosexual ranting about the Russians this week. Every camel herder that bows to Mecca wants to behead us and he’s worried about this?
For a more realistic analysis on the Russians, this Zero Hedge article is a good place to begin.
What we need is a Russian reset from the present course of action, not picking a fight with a potentially ally.

There is no reason why nationalism is bad. If the europeans had a bit more nationalism, they would have invited far fewer Muslims into the continent and the ones they invited would be like the Mayor of Rotterdam and not concerned with jihad. We wouldn’t have shipped all our jobs to China and opened our borders to all of Mexico and Central America…There’s a big difference between being proud of your country and starting wars.

>It is the price for living in your town.
I don’t live in town. I live out in the country on a gravel road. We have a septic tank. I pay a private company for garbage pick up…
…and yet, $3600 a year later, here we are. Property taxes are the most unconstitutional of taxes because they strike at the very idea of property ownership. If a local government has to be funded – fine. Fund it out of local sales taxes.

Correction: Seems to be an issue with commercial jets departing from SE Asian countries with large Muslim populations lately…

Hey now, there are a lot of honorable people who fought and died for freedom under that banner.
Not in today’s army. You seem to forget it’s not the 1860s anymore.

Unfortunately you’re quite right. In the end, both sides in World War I and World War II had the same cultural basis. It was in a sense, the global civil war of western civilization (with Japan and the Ottomans sucked in). The enemy we face today would behead you for playing soccer.
Japan was not "sucked in" -- they'd been very busy sucking in Korea and China before the Germans were even ready to go to war.
Nor were the Ottomans "sucked in." They jumped in with eyes wide open at a time when they thought the Central Powers were sure to win.

The behavior of the NSA is really starting to damage American tech companies. Obama’s “solution” which involved outsourcing the storage of the emails/calls/etc of all Americans to a private company which could then be searched at will by government agencies was no solution at all. Blackberry is in the middle of a renaissance. IBMs server sales (and subsequently its stock price and future guidance) has tanked, and eventually wise people are going to start rejecting Apple, Microsoft, and Google products.

Unfortunately, a good president has to have a broad world view (like Reagan) that applied the principles of freedom and liberty to all areas of life. Throwing the second amendment under the bus because some people act out their fallen natures is only to place a far larger group of people at risk for unspeakable evils at the hands of a tyrannical government. I don’t know that Ben Carson understands that.

Well, this explains why John Boehner spends as much time as he does in a tanning bed.
