    When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 2.1 We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are...

    On July 4, Americans gather to celebrate our nation’s Independence at family gatherings, backyard barbecues, and firework displays. Often we do this without thinking of the meaning of this uniquely American holiday. For too long – from our classrooms to the halls of Congress - our Founders, the Declaration, and our Constitution have been forgotten or even willfully ignored. But 2012 must be different. This year, join with Hillsdale College in a simple – yet powerful – symbol of support for the principles of liberty.

    C-Span ^ | 1 July, 2012
    Anyone wanting to understand the beginnings of great economic collapse of 2008 should start with the book "Reckles$ Endangerment", by Gretchen Morgenson and Joshua Rosner. Mortgenson is finally interviewed by Brian Lamb on this week's C-Span Q&A, and gets to tell a bit of the story of how government mismanagement and outright corruption in the early 90's set the stage for the wrecked economy in the late 00's. Lamb, for some reason, tries his best to turn a lot of the blame to Republicans, and Morgenson does the obligatory "both sides of the aisle" routine, but the names you'll hear...

    EPA proposes greenhouse gas rule for new coal-based power plants On March 27, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed its New Source Performance Standard (NSPS), a long-delayed proposed regulation aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from coal-based power plants. The new rule requires coal-based generating sources to emit no more than 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour, which is a level met by natural gas-combined cycle power plants. Conventional lignite-based plants produce more than twice that amount. The proposed rule, which goes into immediate effect, means any new lignite-based plants would be required to install technology to capture...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | June 6, 2012 | Lynell George
    Ray Bradbury, the writer whose expansive flights of fantasy and vividly rendered space-scapes have provided the world with one of the most enduring speculative blueprints for the future, has died. He was 91. Bradbury's daughter confirmed his death to the Associated Press on Wednesday morning. She said her father died Tuesday night in Southern California. Author of more than 27 novels and story collections — most famously “The Martian Chronicles,” “Fahrenheit 451,” “Dandelion Wine” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes” — and more than 600 short stories, Bradbury has frequently been credited with elevating the often maligned reputation of science...

Conversely, activists on the right are free to exercise the power of their pocketbooks and refrain from supporting businesses that shun their values. So, what are you waiting for, conservatives? There are coordinated shakedowns taking place right now that involve some of America’s most prominent companies who’ve chosen to surrender to progressive bullying and race-card opportunism. Silence is complicity. On Tuesday, McDonald’s told liberal magazine Mother Jones that the company had “decided to cut ties with ALEC,...

He was our friend, always there with encouragement to fight the good fight for the country he loved so much.

    I just sent the following to someone involved with animal rescue, and wanted to share with Freepers. It's been a very hard day here : I found out last night my family has to move overseas in the next 5 days because of my husband's job. I have a highly intelligent, well trained, well behaved, 4 year old German Shepherd. If I can't find a foster or permanent home, he will have to be euthanized. I've worked with him extensively. He's obedient and knows many commands, but he's not been able to be socialized to other people or animals. From...

  • The National Debt Relief Amendment

    03/23/2012 10:06:40 PM PDT · by OneLoyalAmerican · 12 replies · 2+ views
    The National Debt Relief Amendment: “An increase in the federal debt requires approval from a majority of the legislatures of the separate States.” Re-gaining control of the debt limit is not a partisan issue. All within the Washinton bubble: politicians of all partisan flavors & their disgustingly lazy MSM lap dogs; they're simply incapable of doing their jobs! Last Congress maxed out the last of the credit cards. This Congress co-signed our grandchildren for "payday loans." It's time to go Constitutional upon them! Two states on board, twenty-two seriously considering, six with toes in the water. Legislative kits available for...

    The White House ^ | March 19, 2012 | by Jay Carney
    Q: Jay, what does the President hope to achieve on his trip Wednesday and Thursday on energy? MR. CARNEY: Well, let’s just be clear about two things. One, energy in general, and the price of gas in particular, is on a lot of people’s minds right now. Two, this President is aggressively advocating for and pursuing an all-of-the-above energy strategy as a matter of policy. Q: Is the point of going on a trip like this where he can be photographed in front of solar panels or pipes an opportunity to try and sell that more? Is that essentially what...
