Kagan and Arms

It seems that US Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan might become a Second Amendment supporter. In a recent interview in People Magazine, she describes a surprising relationship with conservative Antonin Scalia: […]

Christianity and Progressivism

In a discussion at Citizen Tom’s excellent blog, he laments the loss of Christianity (along with politics) as even a topic of popular discussion. In the middle of a long and thoughtful post, with which I largely agree, he notes: […]

Amendment B: Ballet Protection

LibertyAmendments

It’s been a while, with a few interruptions (some good and some not). Here’s an amendment that is controversial but where I am in complete agreement with Mark Levin. His language follows: […]

Amendment A: Aggregate Government Service

Term limits currently apply to the president: He or she cannot serve more than 2.5 terms. (The half term would arise in cases where the role of president was taken over because of vacancy mid-term.) Mark Levin’s proposal for this in The Liberty Amendments runs as follows: […]

Constitutional Repair

In another blog, by the estimable Citizen Tom, I engaged a pretend conservative who regularly haunts that site. The discussion post, entitled What Do We Do?, raised the issue I wrote about yesterday: How do we fix the current political problems that arise from erosion of the Constitution. Before we get into my reply to faux conservative “scout,” let’s talk about other alternatives: […]

Constitutional Concerns

The US Constitution does not need to be replaced or scrapped, as a number of folks on the left have suggested going back to President Woodrow Wilson. It does not need to be cured of its fatal flaws, so that Obama can implement redistribution of wealth and “break free” from the negative liberties placed by the founding fathers to prevent this, as Obama said in 2001. Nevertheless, there are major problems with our current government. Some examples after a design overview: […]

Christian Nation?

ObamaChristianNation

The US is not a Christian nation by official founding proclamation, and religious freedom was wisely important to the founders of the country. In this sense, the US is unlike many countries in the Middle East whose constitutions proclaim them to be Islamic nations bound by strict religious (Sharia’h) law.

Nevertheless, there are countless US […]

Christian Science and Jihadists

I am not particularly familiar with The Christian Science Monitor. It does not appear to be connected to “mainstream” Christianity — and is instead evidently another Obama administration support organ, like MSNBC, but with a religious slant. […]

Billionaire Bloomerg’s Grassroots and God

Anti-Gun-Group-Moms-Demand-Action-Lies-About-Victory-At-Staples

Two aspects of this article about former NY mayor Bloomberg struck me: First, he asserts (and the news media blithely accepts) that you build a “grassroots movement” by spending tens of millions of dollars to finance it. Second, his relationship with God is discussed. (There’s a nice write-up of the article at The Truth About Guns.) […]

Rules for Thee

DwayneFerguson

They caught the guy. He was carrying concealed on school grounds, and based upon the penalties enacted in New York State about carrying a gun in such gun-free zones, he was arrested. The story was noted by The Truth About Guns, and is implausible: […]
