This week's Tweets cover the divine right to eat what we want; the guys who fight for us; the divine right to fly without fear; and the race to save the American Dream.

It seems like bad ideas have a way of turning up all over the country in different state legislatures.

This bad idea has to do with turning over the power to regulate diets to the American Dietetic Association under the theory that deciding what we can eat wasn’t exactly what the Founders had in mind when they talked about liberty.

The association is pushing for legislation in over 40 states, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “that would essentially give its members a monopoly over providing nutritional therapy to willing consumers.”

You know liberals are in charge when it’s getting easier to buy marijuana than it is a Snickers bar.

This week was a good week to remember that most of us don’t fight the war against radical Islam. That privilege is given to a small group of American military members, intelligence operators and contractors.

And their families.

This week the destroyer USS Michael Murphy (DDG-112) was christened by the U.S. Navy on what would have been Lt Murphy’s 35th birthday.

Murphy, a Navy SEAL lieutenant, died in Afghanistan in 2005. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.
