    I posted this elsewhere, but I like it, so here it is. All of my stuff you feel has merit, please feel free to repost or clip anything I write, with or w/o attribution, I could not care any less about that. If my words are ammo, “Fire for effect.” Here it is. Stick to your guns, no matter what. If they come to take them by force, they have declared war on the Constitution, and on you. At that point, war is joined, just as it was on another big gun confiscation raid on April 19, 1775. If it...

    A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty. The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty." According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that "neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors' business, that neighbors live and let live." Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound...

    There’s an epidemic in this country, something that has or will affect all of us in our lives. And the government needs to act to protect us from those who may do us harm. This plague is particularly felt in schools. The children must be made safe. President Obama, bravely speaking out against this horror, said, “We have an obligation to ensure that our schools are safe for all our kids.” Amen, Mr. President. Amen. The best course of action to protect as many of our citizens, particularly children, as possible is to place sensible restrictions on this right we...

    The American Thinker ^ | January 13, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    Conservatives are forgetting their most important lever: Voters logically must support raising taxes if they believe that every dollar of Federal spending is needed. But if some spending is unnecessary, cutting spending is correct. America is divided by assumptions about whether the Federal budget includes a lot of lard or is completely necessary. Conservatives need to return to what built the conservative movement, to return to what works. We need to stop talking as if helping rich people become richer is our main priority. Despite years of effort in the past, conservatives must now explain all over again to today's...

    MOSCOW, - A giant cobra made out of cattle dung was created to entertain children in a Siberian village during the frigid winter months, its 52-year-old sculptor says. "I made it so the kids could play around and have some fun," said Mikhail Bopposov, a native of the Siberian republic of Yakutia, RIA Novosti reported Friday. The 880-pound sculpture shows the snake coiled and its hood spread. It's displayed in the village of Yolba, about 125 miles east of the republic's capital, Yakutsk. Bopposov is the building manager for the village school and gets his art supplies from the 17...

    When the Supreme Court, or any other court for that matter, makes a ruling in a case they first look for precedent, in other words to see if there has been a court decision rendered on the same subject in the past and usually defer to the old decision in ruling on the case. The greatest teacher in life is experience; it only takes one time of burning your fingers on a hot stove to know that you never want to touch another one. The next greatest teacher is observation, paying attention to someone else's experiences and profiting from their...

    Fiction crime-writer Patricia Cornwell is used to writing about a heroic medical examiner investigating complex mysteries, but now she is in the middle of a drama of her own, claiming her former financial management firm cost her tens of millions of dollars in lost money over four years. Cornwell, 56, and her partner, Staci Gruber, a neuroscientist at Harvard University, have lived in the Boston area for the last six years. In October 2009, she filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts against her former accounting firm and business manager, Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP and its...

    Their names have been broadcast in bright daylight. Undercover officers, some who pose as “bad guys” that should not be allowed to have a pistol permit, outed by their own local newspaper. Orangetown Police Chief Kevin Nulty joined a growing chorus in blasting The Journal News. “I think The Journal-News went overboard on this,” he said, noting that in his opinion the listing of names and addresses of gun permit holders jeopardizes their health and safety, and clearly jeopardizes the safety of all local undercover officers regardless of the department for which they work. Joining Nulty and the County of...

    The bible says the world won't go out like a lion.. but rather in several small steps. This also happens to be how communism, socialism are taking over America. In the last days Christians won't be able to participate in society without taking the mark of the beast. That means no food, ability to use money or other active participation in society. Obama has got the ball rolling with Obamacare. The first small step. Christians can have a business. But they'll be expected to contribute to the Health Care Law, which pays monies for abortions.

    The Japan Coast Guard is planning to create a fleet of 12 cutters to patrol the waters around the Senkaku Islands in response to the constant presence there of ships affiliated with the Chinese government. A special team of about 400 coast guard officers will be assigned to the Senkaku patrols. Because the necessary number of officers cannot be secured through new enlistment alone, the coast guard is considering a plan to extend the retirement age for officers. To create the fleet of 12 cutters, sources said the government will include a request in the supplementary budget to be submitted...
