Thanks for sharing. This story needs to be shared.
I'm good with that. Scanned my Constitution and don't see anything in there delegating power over education.
Awesome, and well said! It's what I encourage my homosexual friends and family members. Participate in our society the same way I, as a heterosexual who has desires to be a serial adulterer participated in our society - marry a good woman, have children, and set an example of Christian charity, fidelity, and industry. In God's eyes all sin separates us from Him. God doesn't hate homosexuals any more than He hates adulterers, thieves, murderers - it's all sin that separates us from Him. I choose to be faithful to my wife DESPITE my sinful desires. One homosexual friend chooses to be faithful to his wife, another chooses to abstain from sex outside marriage. Well said, Chries, well said. Have a Blessed Christmas!
Both Corbett's Canyon and ericynot1 are engaging in a standard tool of the political left called PROJECTION. The Left has used wars and threats of war to distract from or advance their disastrous agenda time and again. ericynot1 actually got something right in that war inevitably leads to LARGER government, unless it is followed by smart, constitutional conservatives who rein in the expansion. No one, especially conservatives, wants war. However, conservatives recognize that letting evil governments get their hands on nuclear weapons or any other large piece of leverage is very bad for peace, and especially for their avowed enemies.
I know there's no point in getting into this with you, but no - there's a big difference between negotiating from a position of strength to force the opponent to make concessions, and announcing surrender before you sit at the table. There was no way Iran was going to give up anything after the way Obama has behaved. However, had he behaved like a real President, say a certain cowboy that everyone on the left hated, the negotiators on the opposing side would've been coming to him to prevent being threatened or attacked. The alternative is to credibly allow them to believe they are in danger, so that they negotiate with you.

Socialism is the forcible taking of one man's property (his money, by taxes) for the purpose of giving it to another man. Socialism requires the government to decide who is worthy of receiving property and who must give up their property, a decision which is made almost arbitrarily. That is theft, which is evil. Socialism allows the uncharitable to fool themselves into thinking that they are charitable by supporting socialism. That is a lie, which is evil. Socialist theory relies on people coveting others' goods, and rewards the covetous by not requiring them to earn their keep. That is envy and sloth, both of which are evil. Socialism reinforces the idea that all people, regardless of whether they earn it or not, are entitled to material wealth, and, more specifically, to other people's material wealth. That is greed, which is evil. Socialism acts as an enabler of the sins of envy, sloth, and greed. That is scandal, which is evil.

Goldilocks knows all. He was here in the beginning, and told God not to make Adam, because Adam would just end up embracing statism... But would God listen? Nooooo. *grin*

Even better, Libertarians are helping a statist, corporatist, big govt, never met a regulation he didn't like Democrat in Virginia. A tool of the worst of the Clinton team. An embarrassment to the Clintons. I just want libertarians to be consistently supportive of libertarian principles.
