Food for Thought

"MANAMA, Bahrain – Soldiers opened fire Friday on thousands of protesters defying a government ban and streaming toward the landmark square that had been the symbolic center of the uprising to break the political grip of the Gulf nation's leaders.


Then the soldiers turned firearms on the crowd, one marcher said."

Naw - no need for any pesky 2d ammemdment in Bahrain

A Misguided View of the Role of (Federal) Government

From the news this morning 2/18/2011

Casting about for innovative job-creation ideas, President Barack Obama is naming one of his critics to an advisory council responsible for finding new ways to promote economic growth and bring jobs to the U.S.

Yeah right. As if  Ben Franklin, John Adams, James Madison and the other founders, and the people got together, had a revolution and then crafted the Constitution because they thought the function of a Federal Government was to " ....promote economic growth and bring jobs to the U.S."

Sorry to break it to you, but the role of the Federal government does NOT include these items - regardless of what Hamilton may have thought.

Patriot Act Non-Renewal

As others have done, I too would like to thank the following Republican representatives for standing up for America and the Constitution.

Justin Amash (Mich.), Roscoe G. Bartlett (Md.), Rob Bishop (Utah), Paul Broun (Ga.), John Campbell (Calif.), John J. Duncan Jr. (Tenn.), Michael G. Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Christopher P. Gibson (N.Y.), Tom Graves (Ga.) Dean Heller (Nev.), Randy Hultgren (Ill.), Timothy V. Johnson (Ill.), Walter B. Jones (N.C.), Jack Kingston (Ga.), Raul R. Labrador (Idaho), Connie Mack (Fla.), Kenny Marchant (Tex.), Tom McClintock (Calif.), Ron Paul (Tex.), Denny Rehberg (Mont.), Phil Roe (Tenn.), Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.), Robert Schilling (Ill.), David Schweikert (Ariz.), Rob Woodall (Ga.), Don Young (Alaska).

These are patriots of the first order and have placed We The People above their own personal political advantage.

Also Like others,  I will vote for whoever supports the Constitution regardless of party.
