The government now has the authority to tax, not based on income, but on behavior.
Know your rights.
This makes me happy in so many ways.
Oh, I know they did. And I take issue with that too. But here’s just one of my many problems with Obama. Go back and take a look at all of his rhetoric, both before and during his 2008 campaign, and compare him with the President we have today. Now just try to tell me he’s not a lier and a hypocrite. And let me ask you a question. If Obama had an R in front of his name instead of a D, would you feel the same way about his actions as President? Would you still be a blind and loyal supporter or are you a hypocrite too?
We need to be more careful about what kind of people we elect to be our leaders, because the quality has become more than a little thin.
I just put myself through the torture of watching J. Edgar and I now hate that man even more than I did before, if that’s humanly possible.
Another thing that caught my attention is a liberty they took at the beginning of the film. They referred to the attacks as “Bolshevik Communist” bombings, which is a half truth and almost an outright lie, as they were Anarchist bombings carried out by Galleanist Anarchists…which was an Anarcho-Communism group operating in America beginning circa 1914. Today, would be mostly likely be categorized as a Libertarian Socialism group.
Too many Conservatives today are looking for another Ronald Reagan, when they need to be looking for another Barry Goldwater. What they’re failing to realize is that we have one, in Ron Paul (or Gary Johnson). In 1989, Goldwater stated that the Republican party had been taken over by a “bunch of kooks”. With morons like Santorum floating around, it’s hard to disagree.
I don’t get it. I can walk into CVS right now and buy a pack of condoms or plan B no questions asked. When did contraception become an issue in the first place?
The stated purpose of health care reform was to address the problem of uninsured patients who either face bankruptcy due to exorbitant bills, or rely on the free emergency care hospitals must provide. But the Affordable Health Care Act (ACA) does far more than require Americans to be insured for catastrophic illness and other major medical expenses. To be approved under the ACA, an insurance policy must include extensive coverage for routine care.
In a sense, medical insurance is meant to mitigate life’s unfair and arbitrary tragedies: Some people are plagued by chronic illness or struck by a devastating health crisis, and need costly care to prevent death or disability. Fertility, however, is a normal part of life and a healthy function of the human body. Contraception is arguably an essential personal need for many, especially women; to call it an essential medical need is a stretch, except where pregnancy would pose a grave health risk.
I think it’s really greedy to say that everyone else owes you contraception. Where the heck did this idea come from?

This video also gives a very brief, but very accurate summary of our foreign policy in the Middle East. If you’re wondering why we’ve become so involved over there, here’s your answer.
Ron Paul 2012!
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by the nationalist socialist Francis Bellamy. The term “allegiance” refers to the duty of obedience and subordination that medieval serfs owed to their feudal lord – their “liege.”
The American founders, by contrast, waged and won a revolution against the Old World idea that we owe allegiance to our governments; the United States was founded on the opposite principle, that our governments owe allegiance to us.
