I’m sure others have covered this…but Maggie’s posts piqued my curiosity and I remember back in 2009 I scoffed at the 90% number…however, with just a precursory search (not google), I found a cache of stories and blogs…of course at the time no one realized where this program originated from…we are just NOW beginning to understand the underpinnings of Fast & Furious and the alleged reasons behind it’s inception and continuation…the tragedy is the death and mayhem this program has caused for American families and innocent families in Mexico…

And yet more from Maggies Notebook about Jaime Zapata’s murder at the hands of more guns…does anyone remember some time ago when Mexican officials were claiming that US guns were making their way into their country?

Here are a couple of links to stories…notice the bylines of 2009 dates:

This story continues to perplex me, I wonder how in the world Americans look at this situation unfolding and added to the DOJ policy of not pursuing any cases that involve blacks in civil rights violations i.e the Black Panthers voter intimidation case…and don’t see a double standard? This is the epitome of  “social justice” unfortunately our Constitution calls for “EQUAL justice” and for a group of public officials to be so inept at following the RULE OF LAW…(I find that in and of itself ironic since this IS the Depart. of JUSTICE…this too is an example of civil rights run amok…when a “protected class”…

Moral Criticisms of the Market | The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty.   March 1989 • Volume: 39 • Issue: 3

Mr. Ewert, a graduate of Grove City College, is working on a master’s degree in public policy at CBN University.

“According to an author writing in a recent issue of The Nation magazine, “The religious Left is the only Left we’ve got.” An overstatement? Perhaps. However, it points to an interesting fact, namely that while the opposition to free markets and less government control has declined in recent years among the “secular left,” the political-economic views of the “Christian left” seem to remain stubbornly unchanged.”

Well worth the read

As Maggie from http://www.maggiesnotebook.com  shows us, this “group” of people are pilfering OUR treasury…A picture is worth a thousand words…and this, I would bet, is just the tip of the money iceberg.

We are not a reflection of our government; our government is a reflection of us…or at least it should be…is ours? I certainly hope not because if it is a reflection of “we the people” then we are a nation of atheists and leftists…bad things happen when good people do nothing…When more than 41% of Americans identify themselves as Conservatives and only 20% as leftists-liberals/progressives (Meggie McCain is your spokesperson-lucky you!) For those of you that are math-challenged that means conservatives OUTNUMBER leftists 2 to 1.

Allen West Calls Democratic Handouts Modern Form of Slavery | TheBlaze.com.

Who doesn’t love this guy for $1500 Alex…

We need more of our Conservative black brothers and sisters to start speaking up more loudly…

Wednesday evening was no exception, when he took to the House floor to deride Democrats for “handouts” that he dubbed a modern form of slavery. Additionally, West praised Republicans for standing up to big government and protecting individual liberty.

“Our party firmly believes in the safety net,” West said in a floor speech on Wed. evening. “We reject the idea of the safety net becoming a hammock.”

If more black listened to West (Allen), Keyes, Cain et al instead of the victim-hoodism alliance of leftists Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton (the guy who calls for the rich to pay their fair share by paying more but he think he has to  pay his taxes, more…

David Duke of the Left | Alan Dershowitz | Media Matters | The Daily Caller

A Stunning statement from Professor Alan Dershowitz…

“Media Matters and Center for American Progress are two extremely left-bigoted groups that are so virulently anti-Israel and anti-supporters of Israel that they’ve gone over the line from anti-Zionism to anti-Semitism,” Dershowitz said. ”They now use the term ‘Israel firsters,’ the way anti-Catholic bigots used to use the term ‘Vatican firsters’ or ‘Irish firsters,’ as if to suggest Americans who support Israel have dual loyalty. This false charge goes back to the Bible — goes back to the Book of Esther, goes back thousands of years. It was one of Hitler’s justifications for killing the Jews: ‘Dual loyalty, they’re not good Germans, they’re not good Americans,’ whatever it is.”

The second is almost as interesting:

Did Actor Denzel Washington Really Liken Atheists to Sociopaths? | Video | TheBlaze.com.

And YET another example of whiny-arsed leftist goof-balls…the leftists are coming unglued over Denzel’s comments about sociopaths?…Suggestions he should apologize?

For what? I know its getting harder by the day to recognize but we STILL DO live in America…

But of course leftists would come to the defense of a sociopath or an atheist…but a Christian? Not on your life…I can only hope Denzel doesn’t apologize…why the heck should he have to apologize for an opinion and a comment about a role he played and how he got prepared for it?

The interesting thing is that there are indeed “moral” atheists that have a conservative-like moral code, they may even ascribe to the Ten commandments or the “golden rule” out of a personal conviction of their belief in humanity’s  “inherent goodness” because of education or evolution…

The Rutherford Institute files amicus brief with SCOTUS in Health care matter


On The Front Lines
Rutherford Institute Asks Supreme Court to Declare Individual Mandate Provision of Obama Administration’s Healthcare Reform Unconstitutional

February 14, 2012

WASHINGTON, DC— The Rutherford Institute has filed an amicus curiae brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that will determine whether the major overhaul of the nation’s healthcare financing system adopted by Congress in 2010 will survive. The Institute’s brief in U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services v. State of Florida asks the Court to strike down the “Individual Mandate” provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, which requires almost all Americans to purchase health insurance, as an unwarranted and unprecedented exercise of power by the federal government. Arguing that by enacting the Individual Mandate “Congress has intruded on individuals’ rights to make private decisions about their own health and in the process has disrupted the federal-state balance” of power, Rutherford Institute attorneys have asked the Supreme Court to uphold a lower court ruling that the Individual Mandate is an improper exercise by Congress of its authority to regulate interstate commerce.

The brief in U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services v. State of Florida is available here.

“No American should be penalized for choosing not to have health insurance,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. “The Individual Mandate provision of the Obama Administration’s Healthcare Reform legislation is an unprecedented exercise of federal power in a field that has historically been a province of the states.”

After taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama embarked on a legislative initiative to overhaul the nation’s health care system, resulting in the enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. An integral part of the legislation is the Individual Mandate which commands that, with limited exceptions, all individuals within the United States ensure that they and their dependents are covered by a minimum level of health insurance each month. Individuals who fail to comply with the Individual Mandate are subject to penalty which is statutorily set at $695 per person, including those for whom the noncompliant person is responsible. The Act provides that Congress enact the Individual Mandate under its power to regulate “interstate commerce” as set forth in Article I, § 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Shortly after its enactment, Florida and 12 other states filed a lawsuit challenging various aspects of the Act, including the Individual Mandate, arguing that Congress had exceeded its power under the Interstate Commerce Clause. In August 2011, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upheld the states’ claim that the Individual Mandate was unconstitutional and constituted an unprecedented exercise of authority by Congress in requiring persons to purchase a product for the remainder of their lives.

In their amicus brief, Rutherford Institute attorneys ask the U.S. Supreme Court to affirm the appeals court’s decision, arguing that a ruling upholding the Individual Mandate “has implications not only as to the freedom of citizens to decide how to provide for their health care, but more broadly on the federalism embodied in the United States Constitution that is meant to preserve liberty by preventing the concentration of power in the national government.” The Institute’s brief points out that the Courts have traditionally recognized that the Constitution permits states to make general health and welfare decisions for the public good, and that the Individual Mandate is contrary to this rule and not a “necessary and proper” exercise of Congressional authority. Alfred W. Putnam, Jr. and other attorneys with the law firm of Drinker, Biddle & Reath LLP, of Philadelphia assisted The Rutherford Institute in drafting and filing the amicus brief.

OK, we don’t have enough stress with say…oh I don’t know, our country going-to-hell-in-a hand-basket…no, NOW we have to have blogosphere meltdowns and hissy-fits, men (presumably professionals) acting like a bunch of whiny-ass-girls…Grow-up wouldya?
I have been reading (with some dismay) on Big-something or other in Breibart’s corner of the blogosverse about a tiff that one of his writers seems to have with one of Becks snot-nose bloggers on The Blaze.
Now I guess its their “word-seconds” turn to duel it out and have a “big boy” pissing contest over opinions, content, honor and truthfulness…what the hell ever guys. Like we don’t have more important things to worry about then watching  you morons see who has the “biggest” whatever…”mental eye-roll.”
At the risk of pissing off just about everyone in the world (save the leftists and communists who are eating this bull-crapola” up)…

Question, has it been a slow couple…
