from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to prevent government infringement on our natural rights as Americans. It was designed to prevent government the ability to bestow and therefore rescind the rights of the individual.
To that, there was an interesting and thought-provoking article in the Washington Post recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered those words in the same sentence: thought-provoking and Washington Post.

So unless you’ve been living in a cave somewhere, you’re aware that the Blaze’s Steven Crowder, you know, Louder with Crowder, was completely demonetized by the “open forum platform,” YouTube.
The dude has like 4 million followers and earns a darned good living from his YouTube channel.
But thanks to some leftists, he will longer get paid for his work. Free speech in America is fast going extinct.
from my friends at GunsPros.com:
As great of a hobby and sport that shooting is, firearm lovers all know how expensive it can be. Guns themselves are expensive, then you have the ongoing costs of ammo and range time.
In this article, we’ll cover 5 tips to save money so that you can spend more time shooting!
1) Factor in All Costs Before Buying Your Firearm
Many people buying their first firearm don’t factor in all of the costs to maintain their firearm and regularly feed it with ammunition. If they have $1,000 to spend, it’s too common that they spend nearly all of this on the firearm itself. Often, they then can’t afford to actually go shoot it at the range.
Not only does this deny them the chance to enjoy a great hobby, but it also prevents them from becoming competent with their firearms. It’s all too common for people to buy firearms intended for serious use like home-defense, then not properly familiarize themselves with the gun.
No matter what the latest fad diet tells us to do, we already know the general gist of how to stay healthy – eating too much sugar and fat leads to weight gain and metabolic diseases. But what if you could stay healthier without changing your diet? In mouse tests conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research, researchers have now found a way to alter the fat metabolism in the liver, reducing the chances of diabetes without changing a high-fat diet.
Our bodies store fat in adipose tissue, but after eating high amounts of the stuff over a long period of time it begins to build up in more important places like the liver. That in turn can lead to fatty liver disease, which can then reduce the body’s response to insulin and eventually bring on type 2 diabetes.
A group of fats known as ceramides have long been associated with these metabolic diseases, and plenty of research has in the past focused on lowering their levels by blocking the proteins that create them – ceramide synthases. Unfortunately, it hasn’t always gone to plan.
“Other research groups have already shown that blocking ceramide production in mice prevents the development of insulin resistance,” says Philipp Hammerschmidt, first author of the new study. “However, this is associated with a large number of side effects. If, for example, ceramide synthesis is completely inhibited it can adversely affect the development of the animals.”
