“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816

I attended a town hall meeting in Claremore on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 featuring Markwayne Mullin, the newly elected congressman from Oklahoma’s 2nd District. Some of his statements sounded strange coming from a “conservative” but one response to a question bothered me more than the rest.
A man asked Mullin about the executive orders being used by Barack Obama to by-pass Congress, and what can be done to nullify them. … Continue

In his “Mission Accomplished” moment, Barack Hussein Obama ended his jobs council on Thursday, January 31, 2013.
Despite the fact that more than 12 million people in the U.S. are still out of work.
Obama’s allies will point out that when the jobs council began two years ago, unemployment was above 9 percent and has since improved to 7.8 percent. What they… Continue

The majority of these blogs all relate to what they believe the President will do - ddo all of you honestly believe that our Congress and The States are so stupid that they can't see the writing upon the wall - believe you me I feel the States' National Guard Units as well as our own Military would not turn on their own families just to make a Black President happy - you people must think that because the President says in his orders will be backed and enforced by true blooded Americans -… Continue

The great Roman statesman, orator, and philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero wrote: "Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum." Translated that means: "Not to know what happened before you were born, that is to be always a boy, to be forever a child."

The price of a college education has gone up and up and the colleges have done little to keep the cost in check. College loans can not be removed by bankruptcy, they are with you until you pay them off unlike other loans. Many college graduates were told by the colleges that the degree would assure them of a job that would pay enough to pay off those loans, when it has not and will not. The bankers got bailed out and our sons and daughters are now being screwed by those same banks and by… Continue

Regardless of any truth that may be inherent, in general, referencing Hitler or comparing one's political or ideological opposite to the Nazis signals an end to any chance at continuing any kind of discourse.
In general, this might also apply to labeling another Stalinesque.

Do Capitol Hill legislators and/or the main-stream Medias have any respect for over 600,000 American men and women who have given their lives in the Military and/or the millions who have served in defending our Constitution, our American Flag, and our freedoms? Someway, we must stop President Obama and Capitol Hill legislators from granting ‘freedoms to criminals’.
Now, President Obama, and… Continue

With everything happening to this country of ours it is getting harder and harder to maintain a cool head and not jump to conclusions but if we sit back and view the last four years as well as what’s happening now an image is starting to appear of what might possibly be our future.

Intuitively, I had always believed that the 2nd Amendment protected my inherent right to keep and bear arms for my own personal safety; that this right was derived from “natural law” irrespective of any right to same which may have been specifically granted or denied by either the United States or any of the States.
Further, I had always believed that since the federal government was not specifically granted the right to restrict my right to self-protection, that, in… Continue
