Mommas, Please Raise Your Babies to be Free Market Thinkers


So they don't do this sort of thing:

Uncivil War: Detroit Blames the South - Karen De Coster - Mises Institute:
"The Union is squaring off against the South again. This time it's Detroit's union — the UAW — partnering with the auto manufacturers, politicians, and media supporters of the domestic auto industry to wage warfare against the entire South."

Food co-op hit by SWAT raid fights back

I first read about this at The Common Room, & I am appalled & deeply disturbed by increasing reports of SWAT raids on innocent family people. I simply do not understand the motivation, other than that petty bureaucrats love their power trips & are dying to use the new military equipment the local police have been issued. Your tax dollars at work folks:

Cooling Is Warming by Vin Suprynowicz

Cooling Is Warming by Vin Suprynowicz

When will the "Let us take over and wreck your economy so we can save you from the climate boogey-man" gang admit the earth is cooling again, and when will they admit, "OK, since cooling is worse than warming, and our own theory is that mankind can impact global temperature by what we burn, it's now your duty to hold back the Big Freeze by going out there and burning all the fossil fuels you possibly can, as fast as you can"?

Nice!

The Origin of Christmas - Answers in Genesis


AIG has an interesting perspective on the pagan origins of Christmas, whatever your feelings are about celebrating it. For me, all days belong to God & no pagan, old or "neo," can usurp God's ownership (cf., I Cor. 8:4-6).

Shhh ... Don't call Obama's national service scheme a 'draft'


Disloyal Opposition: Shhh ... Don't call Obama's national service scheme a "draft":

...
"At first glance, Obama's scheme is similar. His proposal even specifically refers to 'universal voluntary citizen service.' It's all very touchy-feelly. But, as Michael Kinsley put it so well in the pages of Time: 'Problem number one with grand schemes for universal voluntary public service is that they can't be both universal and voluntary. If everybody has to do it, then it's not voluntary, is it? And if it's truly up to the individual, then it won't be universal.'"
...


Gives me warm fuzzies all over. Please finish reading with the link to Disloyal Opposition.

The Bill of Rights Anniversary--Today!

From the Patriot Post:

BILL OF RIGHTS ANNIVERSARY

Today, 15 December, is the 217th anniversary of the adoption of the Bill of Rights, the first Ten Amendments to our Constitution, as ratified in 1791.

The Bill of Rights was inspired by three remarkable documents: John Locke's 1689 thesis, Two Treatises of Government, regarding the protection of "property" (in the Latin context, proprius, or one's own "life, liberty and estate"); in part from the Virginia Declaration of Rights authored by George Mason in 1776 as part of that state's Constitution; and, of course, in part from our Declaration of Independence authored by Thomas Jefferson.

Read in context, the Bill of Rights is both an affirmation of innate individual rights and a clear delineation on constraints upon the central government. As oft trampled and abused as the Bill of Rights is, Patriots should remain vigilant in the fight for our rights.
