America is great because America is good, but if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great

Read the whole thing at :

I thought of Aristotle, who said, “Political society exists for the sake of noble living,” a sentiment chiseled into the edifice of many a public building, including the south face of the state capitol building in Lincoln, Nebraska.

I remembered the words of John Adams, our second president, who famously observed, “Our Constitution was designed for a moral and a religious people; it is wholly inadequate for the governing of any other.”

From somewhere deep in my memory, I recalled the plea of Abraham Lincoln, who declared, “Freedom is not the right to do what we want, but what we ought. Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.”

There were the eloquent but simple words of a wise Frenchman named Alexis de Tocqueville, who visited the United States in the 1830s and marveled at the genius of our system and the decency of our people. “America is great because America is good,” Tocqueville opined, “but if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”

Author G.K. Chesterton wrote, “Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”

And the French author Voltaire said, “All sects are different, because they come from men; morality is everywhere the same, because it comes from God.”

Finally! SCOTUS Gives the Left a Group They Can H8!!!

Legalized and government sanctioned.  Seen at :

The Supreme Court, in their role of legislating, oh, um, I mean, in their role of invalidating the consent of the governed…, wait, okay, um, well, you know what I mean.

The Supreme Court has given their seal of approval on gay “marriage.” And even better, they have opened the door to a group that Liberals are welcome to HATE, HATE, HATE!!

Isn’t it terrific?!!!

Ah, yes. In the name of equality Liberalism can finally, openly, and with judicial fiat hate Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus. And they don’t have to feel guilty at all!!

What a coup!

And supporters of homosexual “marriage” took to the Twitters to share their SCOTUS-approved H8:

“Take that bitches!!!” was the tolerant Left’s response.

In an effort to be able to “live their lives and love their loves” freely, they now have the door kicked wide open to hate those folks who disagree with them and hate them with impunity!!!

Ain’t life grand?!

You see, there’s equality, then there’s equality.

And a First Amendment protection to practice your religion isn’t something that you can do with equal freedom as say two men who want to get married in your church.

Faith, any faith, has now officially become hate speech.

DOJ Defunds Youth Programs that Reference God

.

Obama’s Department of Justice has summarily removed federal funding from two Louisiana youth programs, one a Young Marines program, because a local official refused to sign a pledge stating he would require the programs to ban mentions of God.

Julian Whittington, the sheriff of Bossier Parish, La.,  that Obama’s Justice Office of Civil Rights defunded the  chapter and another youth program over mentions of religion. In the case of the Young Marine program, chartered in 1965, the funding was cut off because the group features an oath that mentions “God.” In the other case it was because a program for at risk youth featured a voluntary, student-led prayer session as one of its activities.

Sheriff Whittington says that the DOJ withdrew a combined $30,000 from the programs because the groups refused to remove God from their activities. The sheriff said this was evidence of the government’s “aggression and infringement of our religious freedoms.”

Magpul To Leave Colorado In Grand Style

Seen at :

After the Colorado State Legislature (?) voted to roll back portions of Coloradans Second Amendment rights, Magpul filed suit to fight and pulled up its roots to relocate.

This Saturday yours truly will join Magpul, Free Colorado, and for an epic send-off at Infinity Park. Before Colorado’s anti-Second Amendment laws kick in, Magpul will sell 20 and 30 round standard capacity magazines, in limited supply at the event, and the first 1500 through the gate will receive a  free Magpul Gen M2 MOE 30 round magazine featuring either the Free Colorado or Boulder Airlift design, courtesy of Magpul Industries. 

I’ll be arriving via helicopter and dropping off cases mags for distribution and will say a few words.

Celebrate a fabulous business who has muscled up for the fight against the Second Amendment in and bid them farewell in epic style.

. Proceeds go towards rolling back the assault on 2A rights in Colorado — and in other states.

The State V. God

on the ramifications of the SCOTUS ruling last week.

The ramifications of that move are stunningly far-reaching. The argument that gay marriage doesn’t affect straight marriages is a ridiculous red herring: Gay marriage affects society and law in dramatic ways. Religious groups will come under direct assault as federal and state governments move to strip them of their non-profit statuses if they refuse to perform gay marriages. Public schools across the country will be forced to teach homosexual marriage alongside traditional marriage. Religious business owners will be leveraged to pay for benefits for same-sex spouses.

In the left’s view, all of this is to the greater glory of humanity. In the leftist view, there is no freedom to associate or freedom of religion if those rights come into conflict with the left’s view of morality. Religious florists must provide flowers for gay weddings; religious organizations must pay for abortion and contraception. What you do in your church makes you immoral, says the left — so immoral that your church must be removed from the public square or forced to bow to the power of the state.

SCOTUS Overturns DOMA; Kills Ballot Initiatives in Attempt To Punt on Same-Sex Marriage

SCOTUS ruled on a couple more cases today.  Here is the lowdown from .

Ruling 1: Section 3 of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) was ruled unconstitutional, i.e. any legal marriage from a state must be treated equally under Federal Law. This gives legal same-sex marriages the ability to file joint federal tax returns. It also allows benefits given to other married couples in these states.

The vote was 5-4 with Justice Kennedy being the swing vote on this ruling. This ruling affirms the state self governing rules and that how Federal Law cannot overrule this in the cases of equal justice under the law.

It also ensures there will be another case soon that will force the court to rule on the other aspects of DOMA and whether same-sex marriage will be forced upon the country by the court or continue to be the domain of the states.

What this means is that a state has the right to determine whether or not same-sex marriage will be recognized.  What this does not do is overrule any state that does not recognize it.  A gray area here is if someone gets married in one state and then moves (or drives back to) another state where that marriage is not legal.

IRS Sent $46,378,040 in Refunds to 23,994 ‘Unauthorized’ Aliens at 1 Atlanta Address

The Internal Revenue Service sent 23,994 tax refunds worth a combined $46,378,040 to “unauthorized” alien workers who all used the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).

That was not the only Atlanta address theoretically used by thousands of “unauthorized” alien workers receiving millions in federal tax refunds in 2011. In fact, according to a published last year, four of the top ten addresses to which the IRS sent thousands of tax refunds to “unauthorized” aliens were in Atlanta.

The IRS sent 11,284 refunds worth a combined $2,164,976 to unauthorized alien workers at a second Atlanta address; 3,608 worth $2,691,448 to a third; and 2,386 worth $1,232,943 to a fourth.

Obama will veto bill that would prevent dismembering babies old enough to feel pain

Even after the horrors that the Gosnell trial brought to light, the President will see fit to allow the practice to continue.  Seen at :

The reason the media  the lurid and highly newsworthy Kermit Gosnell  trial is that it is heavily invested in the political success of Barack Obama. Don’t get the connection? Maybe  will help:

Despite passing the U.S. House of Representatives, a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy faces an uncertain future as President Obama’s administration has suggested that he will veto it.

“(S)cience is on our side,” Representative Marsha Blackburn, (R- Tenn.) told MSNBC in an interview.
