20 Years of Wolves in Government Clothing

Tom. "Neanderthal", "delusions", "fable". Interesting terms from a professional. Sounds like your opinions may have a basis in emotion. Just a constructive observation, no offense intended. I live in the Black Hills. Our deer and elk populations are way down. Part of the reason is weather. Comparatively few tags were issued this year. Collared mountain lions have been found, by state GFP, to seek out birthing elk. We have champions of the mountain lions to deal with here. Probably not much different from the fans of wolves. In their vision, the needs of hunters, many of whom feed their family with game, come in dead last. Fortunately, the state still has control here, at least with regards to the lions, and sets a season for them. I've grilled and eaten mountain lion. Not great, but not bad. Oh, and it's not red meat, so bon appetit!

Is America in a Religious War?

So Mr. Davis' solution is that non-violent Muslims create a new theology and convert en masse? The Protestant-Muslim Church? Led by Mohammed Martin Luther? Sorry, but non-violent Muslims are not committed followers. They are the "cafeteria Catholics" of their community. The violent jihadists are the faithful and true followers of Islam. The logical conclusion is understandably distasteful. Both Mr. Davis and our political leaders are in denial. The difference is a matter of degree.

Shawn, love your columns. However, to answer your question of why Cuba. Because it is in our hemisphere, and geographically very close to our shores.

No Longer a Republican

Matt, welcome to the reality many of us have reached. I left the Republicans after having watched their 2006 attempt to push through amnesty, and their having forced McCain down our throats as the nominee the following year. The Republican establishment is disingenuous and reprehensible. No doubt. However, if we keep sending people like Cruz and Paul to Washington we may eventually tip the scales of power away from the entrenched interests. Better to take over the existing Republican power structure than to hand victory to the statists by establishing a third party. Also, your Christian litmus test won't fly. Better a Constitutional litmus test. Will they truly support and defend the Constitution, not will they support and defend a theocracy. Otherwise, spot on.

m90, we disagree. The House controls spending. They had the power, and the responsibility, to defund illegal or unconstitutional acts. They did not. And they won't.
The leadership of both parties agree that the gravy train must roll on. Problem is, the current system if financially unsustainable and socially destructive. Anyone who points this out is labeled as radical.

Wise Warren and Crazy Cruz

Warren would grow the D.C. beast, Cruz would shrink it. Cruz threatens the status quo, and the potential of realizing a socialist utopia. This is a battle the statists cannot win fairly. They need the propaganda machine of major media in their corner to distort perceptions.
If Bush III is nominated I will vote for a third party candidate.
But look at the up side. If the feds aren't going to enforce the laws we don't have to pay income taxes anymore, right? Oh, I guess we do. But, hey, if ICE serves no purpose anymore it can be defunded, right? No? Anyway, look at the upside of the abandonment of the enforcement of immigration laws. Now we can all own a retirement home in Mexico, right? No? Mexico is still going to enforce it's strict immigration laws? Non-citizens can't own real estate in Mexico? Surely the Republican leadership will stand for the rule of law though. You mean they tried to push through an amnesty in 2006? We are screwed and tattooed.
