CitizenLink examines what happens when a judge rules against freedom. This specifically examines the case in Colorado where two homosexuals went to a bakery and wanted a cake to help them counterfeit a marriage. The bakery owner, a Christian, declined because of his religious convictions. Not content to go look for an amoral bakery, the homosexual activists enlisted the power of government to force the Christian bakery owner to participate in their immorality.
Add Alfonzo Rachel to the growing list of people who have growing concerns about the new national Common Core education standards which elitists seem determined to shove down the American people's throats. Zo found that a student's Common Core survey wanted to find out about the parents' political leanings.

As reproductive science has advanced, the humanity of an unborn child has become increasingly apparent. We now know that unborn children begin interacting with their uterine environment at a very early point in the pregnancy. They respond to physical stimuli. They can feel pain.

The antiquated notion that an unborn baby is merely an extension of the mother's body has been proven false.
According to the latest job numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, folks are not even entering the labor force (i.e. looking for work), let alone finding jobs at the rate needed to significantly improve labor market conditions.

The Rapid City Journal is reporting that South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard was in Rapid City yesterday to "defend" the Northern Beef scandal. From the governor's statements, it seems he is having serious doubts about the efficacy of several things the state has done, including investing millions of dollars of the taxpayer's money in enterprises that fail, and in seeking foreign investments from communist countries. Meanwhile, supporters of former governor Mike Rounds, who was in the governor's office when this mess was created, continue to demonize anyone who wants answers about the whole affair.
"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
