Those tempted to write off the standoff at the Bundy Ranch as little more than a show of force by militia-minded citizens would do well to reconsider their easy dismissal of this brewing rebellion. This goes far beyond concerns about grazing rights or the tension between the state and the federal government.
Less than a few prominent and influential organizations have been working very diligently to advance their power of persuasion. Most notable are SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) and RWW (RightWingWatch). Sure, they expose some legitimate hate groups, but lately it's been difficult to separate the haters from the baiters.
Whenever someone tries to sell an idea as being “settled science,” or as being completely agreed upon and noncontroversial among all “experts,” “reputable researchers,” “intelligent people,” etc., that’s a big, red, flashing light telling you that you need to question it -- and question it carefully. Legitimate claims don't need to hide behind that kind of hype.
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal sister imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript paradoxically titled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships. Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?
How is it possible for a great American political party to be so out of touch with its constituents, so completely tone deaf to their wants and desires, so separated from the reality of the world around them? With citizens looped together into one vast globe encircling network of information and communication, how is it possible for the GOP to be so ill informed?
The people of Great Britain, the political forefathers of American liberty, fought for centuries to establish individual freedom. Beginning as abject servants of an absolute king, they struggled to carve out a space for the recognition of personal independence. Through battles and death, fire and sword, through revolution and repression, the people of Britain won inch by inch a space for humanity to breathe free.
I'm absolutely tired of the rabid radical liberals that demand tolerance, while then calling for those they disagree with to be killed or harmed in some way. I'm also sick of the insults and the twisting of words and the changing of the subject in mid-stream to try and make it all still seem like the other person's fault or ignorance or whatever, when facts are pointed out that are inconvenient to the initial attack or any other attacks that follow along the way. And I am definitely tired of the attacks that sound as though they are coming straight from the mental ward.
As Hot Air says, this is must-see TV! Greta van Susteren executes an epic takedown of a Lefist liar and his lies. Democrat Mike Dickenson is running against Republican Eric Cantor in Virginia. He hates Fox News, he hates the Tea Party...and Greta turns all his lies and accusations back on him and reveals him for the hypocritical liar that he is. Watch the video.
I have previously used analogies involving driving to make points about… well, things besides driving. Anyway, recent events, and discussions about these events, have inspired me to expand on one of these "driving" analogies. Anyone who’s familiar with these events should have no trouble understanding what it's really about.
“[T]here is the issue of marriage and children. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that single women who have never married earned 96 percent of men’s earnings in 2012.The supposed pay gap appears when marriage and children enter the picture," said American Enterprise Institute’s Mark J. Perry and Andrew G. Biggs. It is stating the obvious. Women have babies, and when they do, a significant percentage of them leave the labor force.Next Page »
"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
