It’s now more punk to be a practicing, Bible-believing Christian, than it is to be an actual punk rocker.

And politics aside, what a story of God’s grace and mercy Dave Mustaine is.

Don’t send me political texts I didn’t ask for.

Why is it that a large segment of left has embraced a code of appeasing “sensitivity” toward Islam—when they are its obvious next victims? Why do they wring their hands over “microagressions,” while urging us not to provoke people who execute homosexuals and throw acid in women’s faces?

Why does the left kowtow to Islam?

ABC News, if it cares one whit about its reputation, should ban Stephanopoulos from doing any 2016 campaign coverage. It’s bad enough that he was once a Clinton White House staffer. But everyone went along with the charade that his political days were behind him and that he just wanted to be an objective reporter. That charade ends today.

“Exactly which elite, liberal institution does have to live up to the left’s values?”

Good question.

If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.
–James Madison, letter to Edmund Pendleton, 1792

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. … This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy. … Interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans – a debt tax that Washington doesn’t want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
–Senator Barack Obama, March 2006

As parents, we can have no joy, knowing that this government is not sufficiently lasting to ensure any thing which we may bequeath to posterity: And by a plain method of argument, as we are running the next generation into debt, we ought to do the work of it, otherwise we use them meanly and pitifully. In order to discover the line of our duty rightly, we should take our children in our hand, and fix our station a few years farther into life; that eminence will present a prospect, which a few present fears and prejudices conceal from our sight.

–Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776

Not enslaving future generations to debt: common sense in 1776, unheard of in 2013.



Please understand I’m not advocating flag burning of any kind. I honestly don’t see the need. And whether or not protesting against any sort of homosexual agenda is philistinian or not is beside the point. People should be allowed to say stupid things. What gets my goat is when free speech is the rallying cry by one group protesting one thing, but then that same group wants to shut down counter-protests. That’s a double standard. There should be no protected classes. Either we all have the right, or none of us do.



But while property is considered as the basis of the freedom of the American yeomanry, there are other auxiliary supports; among which is the information of the people. In no country, is education so general – in no country, have the body of the people such a knowledge of the rights of men and the principles of government. This knowledge, joined with a keen sense of liberty and a watchful jealousy, will guard our constitutions and awaken the people to an instantaneous resistance of encroachments.

–Noah Webster, On Education of Youth in America, 1790

We have lost our knowledge of our rights and how our government is supposed to work. We have fallen asleep.

Those gentlemen, who will be elected senators, will fix themselves in the federal town, and become citizens of that town more than of your state.

–George Mason, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788


I was shushed from the other room. Again.
