Fancy that. One (maybe two – North Dakota) out of 50 States has the intelligence and the courage to actually follow the rules.
The other 49 (48) are unaware of what Oklahoma is proposing, complete ignoramuses, going to take a wait-and-see approach, or don’t give a crap what the rule book says. They’re going to do whatever they want and are content to let the feds run roughshod over them, providing they’re working toward the same tyrannical ends.
The rule book being the United States Constitution. It is technically still the rule book, right?
The 10th Amendment is the cornerstone of federalism. It reads as follows: read more
Broaching the topic of same-sex marriage seems to render most on both the right and left apoplectic.
There’s of course the radical LGBT groups who won’t be satisfied until every church and religious institution (save for Islam) bows to their desires and is forced to bless the union of anyone and anything they feel fit to join in unholy matrimony.
There are the religious, steadfast in the belief that God only intended for marriage to between one man and one woman. No matter what the radical groups (or the courts) try to foist upon them, they will not back down, nor surrender their faith.
Then there are those, like me, in the middle who believe that one should be able to marry whomever you wish. If two women want to marry, go ahead – two guys, knock yourself out. I don’t care so long as you don’t infringe on my religious belief that it’s improper. Just as I don’t care if you marry, why should anyone care if I think it’s improper? read more
A call for worldwide jihad has gone out, asking for Muslims to attack, by any means, the communities where they live. No longer are the “faithful” required to go to the Islamic State to wage war on the infidel.
ISIS is calling for the slaughter of Americans, the British, French, Australians and Canadians in their/our own countries by “lone wolves”. One jihadist tweeted, “You could literally search for soldiers, find their town, photos of them, look for addresses in Yellowbook or something. Then show up and slaughter them.”
Abu Mohammad al Adnani, an ISIS “spokesman” announced to all “lone wolves”: “Rig the roads with explosives for them. Attack their bases. Raid their homes. Cut off their heads. Do not let them feel secure. Hunt them wherever they may be. Turn their worldly life into fear and fire. Remove their families from their homes and thereafter low up their homes. Civilians should not be exempt from brutality. Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Killed the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war. Hinder those who want to harm your brothers. The best thing you can do is to strive to do your best and kill any disbeliever, whether he be French, American or from any of their allies.”
These should not be considered just idle threats. This is serious and so are the savages of the Islamic State.
Many Americans from major cities like Boston, Los Angeles and Minneapolis have already left the United States to become jihadists for ISIS. read more
