Today, as in the past, we will need a brave ” civic virtue,” not a timid civility, to keep our republic. — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, American Enterprise Institute speech, Feb 16, 2001

Feb. 10 South Dakota Legislative Billwatch

February 10, 2014   ·   By   ·   0 Comments

SD_HouseThese are some of the more interesting and controversial bills which will be considered in the South Dakota Legislature today.

In HB 1117, we have a bill to restrict the posting of Gun Free Zone signs in public buildings (perhaps because they are akin to slapping a “kick me” sign on your back…or worse yet, a “shoot me” sign).

There is also a South Dakota term limits bill, HJR 1003, under consideration today.

HB 1158 to provide taxpayer funded health care to pregnant illegal aliens is up for a vote in the full House today; recall that last year it passed the full House and wasn’t stopped until it got to the state Senate.

There are also bills dealing with education standards, Common Core, and domestic crimes.

If you’d like to voice your opinion and/or concerns about any of these bills to the legislators, you can email them here or look up their phone numbers here. YOU can make a difference in YOUR government.

Confusing Divergence With Adherence

Bob Ellis

How can you defend Christianity when there are so many bad things from within Christendom? What about all the wars in which Christians have fought? What about all the TV preachers who have abused the trust of people who listen to them? What about all the evil and harmful things done by people who call themselves Christians?

Thoughts on the Coming Election

Dr. Robert R. Owens

The courts have been packed, the banks have been bought off, and the unions use legally mandated dues to support candidates and policies their unwilling members don’t want. Check and check-mate. The situation has become so dire and the hour so late that it appears the only line of defense we have left between the USA and the USSA is a House of Representatives controlled by Progressive Republicans and the hope of a Senate controlled by the same crowd. The old bulls talk conservative to get elected, then join hands across the aisles in a marriage of despotism with deceit.

You Can’t Tame God

Population statistics reveal that Muslims make up less than 1% of the American population. Government statistics recently showed that the homosexual population makes up 1.6 % of the American population. Let those numbers sink in. Why do both groups make Christians cower and run for cover?

Not the Pastor America Needs, but the Pastor We Deserve

Steve Deace

From the outside, Joel Osteen lives a life the world covets. There’s just one problem with that. I can’t think of a single truly great figure in the 2,000-year history of Christianity who didn’t pay some kind of worldly price for defending the faith—beginning with Christ himself at the Cross. On the other hand, it seems as if the world is paying Osteen quite handsomely for the self-esteem gospel according to Joel.

Cruz: More RINOs Will Get Hillary Elected

Bob Ellis

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has highlighted the insanity of once more in 2016 allowing the liberal RINO establishment to push candidates on us who have proven they will betray Republican (and American) principles. You know, of course, that Albert Einstein is credited with stating that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
