At the point our government ignores the Constitution, the citizens are immediately justified in ignoring the government. Once the government becomes insistent, it is the perfect right of the citizens to replace that government, by force if necessary.

So . . . the solution to massive statewide liberal problems is to give California 6 more senators? Go to He . . . Or as they say in Sacramento, "So, I wake up in this giant hand basket see, with some big ugly red guy with horns and a bifurcated tail. He's carrying me down a path, and I can't see whats at the bottom, so I ask him, 'Hey big guy, where' we going?'"
Until she did testify . . . and stated under oath that she had committed no crime. Now she has to testify. She may, point by point, assert the 5th. But she can no longer refuse to take the stand and answer questions.

The Truth About Liberals, Drugs, and Guns

I can't agree. On the drug thing that is. We tried prohibition. It ended with the government murdering the addicts through methanol poisoning while the criminals got very wealthy selling alcohol to politicians. I agree that drugs destroy souls. At least if they're legal, those souls have an opportunity to get help without being thrown in prison for it. The weak are weak. They usually do not overcome fear to rise above their problems. Adding legal complications to the damage they've done with drugs does not help solve anything. Legalizing drugs allows those who need it to get help while taking away the incentive for the wicked to prey on the weak. Who want's to deal drugs if you can make more money doing something else. Don't see too many bootleggers in my neighborhood. If we legalize the drugs the average Joe stops viewing the addicted as criminals and starts seeing them as an opportunity to provide help to someone who needs it. I think this is what God wants us to see. We are all God's children. Shaming the weak provides opportunity for the wicked. Lets get better at helping the weak instead of condemning them and maybe there will be fewer of the wicked. Whatever else you think; if government is your first proposed solution to the problem, you and I will seldom see eye to eye.
I have a better idea!!! Lets program all the triggers NOT to work in the hands of bad guys!!! Instead of programing them to only work in the hands of the owner, just program them to work unless being fired by a bad person!!! (Makes as much sense as Markey's idea.) Then we can all hold hands and fly to never never land for the Democratic National Committee love in and sing Kumbaya!

The Lesson of Dunkirk

Here's a lesson for you; it is not altogether certain that we would have lost. As a matter of fact, the simple act of shutting down the federal government could be considered a victory, in and of itself. That is the eventual goal; shut down all of the federal government that has no right to exist. If we start by only manning the "essential functions" then we are where we want to be. I would argue that most of these "essential functions" are no more essential than my daily draw of lager, which is to say not essential. Shut it down. Fire everyone. Get out the Constitution and start over.
Wow . . . what a disgusting definition of conservatism. The funny thing is . . . they have the words 'human nature' confused with 'government'. As in; Conservatives view the government as inherently corrupt, self centered, lazy and incapable of true charity. How is it a liberal could miss even that simple point?
Oh yes, he can.
Read his other posts. He is neither a Republican, even a moderate one, nor a veteran. He is a troll.
