There are people who care about principle on Capitol Hill and many (if not most) of them are in the Freedom Caucus.
Consider that Franken has sworn to uphold the Constitution. Not that “swearing” to uphold anything probably means much to him. In fact that is pretty clearly on display here –
“the document he (Scalia) revered looks very different from the one I have sworn to defend.”
Really? It looks different? I don’t think so. You, Mr. Franken may not like what the Constitution says, but the Constitution is pretty clear and relatively easy to read.
Immigrants, at least in my experience, are often, not always, but often, people who want to work and who understand markets. Or come to understand them out of necessity.
Socialists hate people who understand markets.
Congresswoman Tulsi has introduced this bill with my Congressman (Republican) Tom Garrett. Good on you both.
No one should be going to jail because of pot. Not in a “free country.”
Because, hey, it’s not really yours anyway right? You just get to finance it and pay taxes on it.
The police shouldn’t just be able to take your stuff.
We thought that a detente had been reached with AG Sessions on the pot issue. We thought we had all agreed that there are probably more important things for the Department of Justice to focus on than on legal weed. Lord knows there are.
It seems to us that marijuana is clearly a state issue per the Constitution. It would appear to fall solidly under the 10th Amendment. (As should any number of issues.) As a presumed fan of federalism and smaller government Mr.
Crony capitalism is fascism-lite.
Sorry (some) folks but I am glad Snowden did what he did. He did us a favor. He didn’t do the US government a favor. Indeed he made its job harder. But he did US, WE the PEOPLE a favor. A big one.
The attached article raises interesting issues but they are not new issues. Of course one must be aware of things like algorithms that tailor ads for our own specific consumption. But the “planners,” the “controllers” are increasingly concerned that people lack the ability to understand how the Internet actually works. They are concerned because of you know, Brexit, Trump, and the disintegration of the EU/globalist dream before their eyes. These people would much rather the government (which we must ALWAYS remember has its own agenda,
I think it really started to look that way right after September 11th when the Patriot Act and all the other new government intrusions (for our safety of course) came online. Then under Obama it became pretty clear that this was the trajectory.
Will anything be done? Can anything be done at this point? We keep complaining. But will people ever absolutely insist on their dignity? Are we too far gone?
“Rare footage of the HOLODOMOR. The man-made famine/genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933.”
This comes to us from a friend of ACC. It shows what was done to the Ukrainian kulaks (land owning peasants, meaning 3 chickens and a pig) during Stalin’s “dekulakization” efforts. You see, the Bolsheviks wanted the food grown in the “bread basket of the Soviet Union” for their efforts. So they sought to collectivize the land and take it from the “bourgeois”

It can be a challenge to follow the pronouncements of President Trump, as he often seems to change his position on any number of items from week to week, or from day to day, or even from minute to minute. Consider his speech last week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). It was reported as “fiery” and “blistering,” but it was also full of contradictions.
In the speech, President Trump correctly pointed out that the last 15 years of US military action in the Middle East has been an almost incomprehensible waste of money – six trillion dollars,
