    Oklahoma introduces measure to impeach Obama over bathroom rights By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY Oklahoma's Republican-dominated legislature has filed a measure calling for President Barack Obama's impeachment over his administration's recommendations on accommodating transgender students, saying he overstepped his constitutional authority.

The bill introduced on Thursday night could force schools into costly construction, which would be difficult for...

Walters is an economist at Loyola University in Baltimore. “If you want a healthy city, secure the property rights that go with capital,” Walters advised. One way of doing so is through tax cuts.

    It’s been said before, and it will probably be said again: Ron Paul is not your typical Republican politician. Appearing on AC 360 last night, fill-in host Sanjay Gupta sought comment from the former Presidential candidate on the controversy surrounding what many are calling the “Ground Zero Mosque.” Paul made clear his frustration in blaming the whole of Islam with the acts of a small radical sect, and compared to the bombing of the Murrow building in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh. -snip- "Al Qaeda was responsible. Several hundred al Qaeda existed at that time. Maybe there are still several...

    On February 10th, there was a "Second Amendment Day" at the Oklahoma capitol in Oklahoma City.  It was successful enough that even AP felt obligated to mention it.  From AP: A few dozen activists met in the Capitol rotunda on Monday for a rally hosted by the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association. This looks like a story that is being mostly ignored by the old media.  I would like to write about it.   If you have any sources for pictures of the rally, or contacts with people who were there, please let me know.

    Let me begin this post with a personal anecdote. True story: I was once arrested for participating in an abortion protest. It was a standard banana-republic arrest and charges were dropped because there was no basis for arresting us. But I got to spend a night in jail—a rather light version where all us pro-lifers got to sack out together. The room was quite familiar to me—the paint, the décor, the cinderblock wall underneath. It was the same as every American schoolroom I had ever been inside. Moving on to what might seem like a different subject: What a great...

    Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez and local political leaders have held a 24-hour fast to pray for immigration reform and to remember families who are separated from each other at Thanksgiving. “Today we are standing up for those who won't be sharing Thanksgiving dinner with their families and loved ones – those who are suffering because of our broken immigration system,” Archbishop Gomez said Nov. 25 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. He called for a “conversion of hearts” to fix U.S. immigration law. The archbishop was joined in the Nov. 25-26 fast by U.S. Rep....
