Chick-Fil-A Breaks World Sales Record

I imagine that a lot of people who had never eaten at Chick-fil-A before went there in support and found out how good their chicken sandwiches are. My guess is that most will become regular customer's of Chick-fil-A in the future. My family dined at Chick-fil-A twice yesterday. Where are Rahm Emanuel and all of those other leftish, anti-Christian mayors today?
One wonders what Larry Elder means by "consumer protest." The media reports that Chick-fil-A restaurants all over the USA were packed and jammed with supporters of Chick-fil-A yesterday. Why are we not hearing from those leftist, anti-Christian mayors this morning?
I think we need to remember that the right to keep and bear arms did not originate with the Second Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms was a part of the English Bill of Rights of 1689. It was reported by Sir William Blackstone in his monumental "Commentary on the Laws of England"(1765), Book One, Chapter One. This was the most important law book used in Colonial America and continues to shape our law today. The colonists had a right to keep and bear arms and did so.
I received word last night that the negotiations at the United Nations have collapsed. No agreement was possible. Barack won't get his treaty that he longs to sign. Our Second Amendment rights are protected - at least for now.

Is Liberal Christianity Worth Saving?

The liberal Presbyterian Church (USA), having endorsed apostasy, is vanishing before our very eyes with losses of about 3 percent of its membership year after year. On the other hand, the conservative Presbyterian Church in America and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church are flourishing and growing. The liberal Episcopal Church, having endorsed apostasy, likewise is wasting away with about 3 percent of its membership leaving year after year. On the other hand the conservative Anglican Church in North America and the Anglican Mission in America are flourishing and growing.
The sale of both long and short guns has been steadily increasing, not only in Denver, but all over the country. This seems like a good thing to me. When we next need armed minute-men, they will be available. I imagine that most areas of the United States could quickly organize a militia, if one should be needed.
Reportedly, the theater company prohibited the carriage of firearms into the theater, even by people with licenses to carry. This made the theater a gun-free zone where no one was able to shoot back at the perpetrator of this horrible massacre. We would do well to ban gun-free zones.

How long will U.S. Dollar Rally Last?

It seems to me that the Federal Reserve has no choice but to continue printing money with which to pay the bills of the effectively bankrupt federal government. Over the longer term, the dollar will continue to suffer inflation and decline in value. The dollar appears strong now, but only because the Euro is so weak.
This would be a good time for every one to read John Locke's Second Treatise of Governmen (1690)t, especially Chapters 18 and 19. Although more than 300 year old, it speaks to the problems we face today.
Bowyer quotes from the Declaration of Independence, however he has omitted the key sentence: "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." This appears to be based on John Locke. Certainly our government has become destructive of our rights, so there are adequate grounds to institute new government. Furthermore, we the people, have that right.

The Mob Presses on John Roberts

The framers of our Constitution created checks and balances between the three branches of government. John Roberts knows this. However, his bizarre behavior has stopped the check of the judicial branch on the legislative branch from working.
