It's a shame that the President was embarrassed at the Prayer Breakfast, of all places. But it's a much bigger shame that he NEEDED to be, that his policies are so indefensible, and hurt so many. Carson, like him or not, is a black man who had every disadvantage and succeeded brilliantly in life, with real accomplishments. Obama, like him or not, is a black man who had every advantage in life, and succeeded brilliantly by faking accomplishment and destroying others. He's the first affirmative-action President. He SHOULD be embarrassed by another's REAL accomplishments. Carson was just pointing out that the emperor has no clothes. Yes, at the Prayer breakfast. Good for him.
...you left out regulatory insanity. The Feds are currently writing 63 new regulations PER DAY. It is not possible to have a business under these conditions, unless you are a gov't contractor, and complying with regulations IS your business.
The problem with our government is NOT government spending. The problem is WHAT the government spends our money ON. It spends it on stupidity. It spends it persecuting the innocent people that PAY for it. It spends it to DESTROY jobs. It spends it to DESTROY businesses....The problem of railing against government spending, is that it's an argument about numbers. How can we possibly quantify, with numbers, this level of stupidity? And the DAMAGE it does? And the lost opportunities? Let's make the qualitative argument; "STOP the STUPID", simply because it IS stupid; then the numbers should take care of themselves.....

Our Federal Government's logic on women apparently cuts both ways. In athletics, women have different capabilities than men, but they have equal rights; so Title 9 says that colleges must provide women their own athletic facilities, sports, teams, leagues, equipment, etc. In the military, women supposedly have the same capabilities as men, so they have the right to fight right up there on the front lines with the strongest, toughest Marines and Infantrymen. Well, which is it? Are women's abilities the same, or different? The Fed's logic says BOTH; that's because it's the most USELESS, COSTLY, POLITICAL, IRRATIONAL answer to the question.

What Happened to Our Country?

Technically, it's true that bearing arms is a right, and a driving license is a "privilege". This isn't necessarily just or good. Nothing is more basic to the Pursuit of Happiness than the freedom to MOVE--to vote with your feet, seek greener pastures, to leave an oppressive situation. In a country as big as ours, you need to be able to drive to be free. Local, corrupt, controlling governments own that "privilege", which is not good. In my state, police hide behind bushes to play "gotcha; 5 mph over the limit gets you stopped and fined. Then the corrupt state holds you hands behind your back while insurance companies pick your pocket, for the next 7 years. Freedom of movement should be a right, also.

Don't Tread on Six-Toed Cats

....and you want to send the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT in, to fix your cat problem? That's crazier than a three dollar bill. By all means get the LOCAL humane group involved, if necessary. They know what cats are, and how to live with them. The Feds do NOT. The HSUS does not. How about this for a guideline: No government AT ALL should get involved regulating cats, if said government's jurisdictional area extends beyond any single local cat's normal territorial range....say, about 1 mile....

I love the use of the phrase "intact families". That means families that still have their balls; families that have not been castrated; families that still have men in them.
I think we've had enough Bushes for a while. If we elect a third Bush, what will he do, invade Iraq for the third time? How'd that work out for us the first two times?

Not sure about Martin, but I know why Fender was NOT raided. It's a union shop. Gibson is non-union.

Mr Driessen is correct on manmade "global warning"; there is no GOOD evidence for it.. However, there is also NO good evidence that wind turbines kill birds, or that solar collectors do harm to the land under them, either. Both claims are NONSENSE, and repeating them cheapens his argument. A few years ago the same bird-killing claim was made against communications towers; it was also false. One ignorant moron stood up at a meeting about the Cape Wind project, and said he was protesting the turbines because they "would spill oil into the sound". Wind turbines kill no more birds than any other large elevated structure. Solar panels on the ground do no more damage to the earth than anything else that casts a shadow.
