Thoughts on the Indiana RFRA
Who needs comedy when you have the Left? Want to see them go absolutely apoplectic? Pass a Religious Freedom Restoration Act that mirrors a law that has been on the Federal books for over two decades, that was co-sponsored by a Democrat (Schumer) and signed into law by a Democratic President (Clinton), and that exists in twenty other states- red, blue and every other color | Read More »

Dear liberal, unfortunatley you made me care, and now so will you.
A writer here on Redstate about a year ago claimed he did not care about gay marriage, or homosexuality. Honestly, I didn’t care either. I felt I really had other things in life to think about than those two topics. For example, I had groceries to buy, school to attend, and a household to support. And I would like to have been able to | Read More »
Marita Noon: The geopolitics of oil go round and round
Frequently calling us “the great Satan,” Iran continues to hate the U.S. Falling oil prices could serve as a death knell to America’s oil abundance (not to mention countries, such as Venezuela, that depend on oil revenues). However the low prices would, overall, be good for western economies—but bad for Iran and its friend, Russia.

We Are Tired of It
For once, will our Georgia legislators stand up for us? For once will you listen to the people who send you to office rather than the deep pocket lobbyists in Atlanta? Approve Senate Bill 129 without amendment and make it a law for the average Georgian. Hear us. We are tired of it.

Hello World. This is a first diary from a new member.
I am completely confused so far by the mechanics of this site, but I will learn.
Djibouti, the U.S. ally with “dirty hands”
“Reprehensible conduct”; “fall way a long way short of the standards of a sovereign state”; “their hands are still dirty”… These are just some of the harsh words used by a British High Court in a judgment handed down on March 23rd against the state of Djibouti. The court case revolved around the false evidence used by the administration of president Ismail Omar Guelleh to | Read More »
Aren’t We All Looking Forward to ‘Internet at the Speed of Government?’
We were on February 26 subjected to the hugest of Barack Obama Administration Internet power grabs. Where the Administration unilaterally decided to start applying 1934 landline telephone law to the 21st-Century-Web. This government grab was made under the guise of Network Neutrality – but this flashback-to-New-Deal phone law is oh-so-much-worse. The Administration has appointed itself the overlord of just about every private sector decision, transaction | Read More »
The April Supreme Court Docket
In April, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in nine cases. They are: Bullard vs. Blue Hills Bank: This is a bankruptcy case which asks whether the denial of confirmation of a bankruptcy plan by a bankruptcy court can be appealed. It involves a plan which some say was agreed upon while others say they are not so sure. Regardless, this about a nuance | Read More »
The Problem I Have with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act
Let me begin by saying that I am in favor of the goals of the RFRA both federally and the bill just recently passed in my home state of Indiana. I do not think that individuals or owners of private businesses should be forced to compromise their religious beliefs to accommodate the social cause of the day. The problem I have is that once again | Read More »
Indiana: RFRA, History & Traditional Christiantity vs ‘Big Little Government’
I’ll start by saying that as issue go, gay-marriage/gay-rights is not one of my majors. It’s not that I support the left’s position on this one – I don’t – it’s just that in the scheme of things that are happening right now (the diminishing of our superpower status abroad, the wholesale swindling of the taxpayer to fund ‘green energy’ scams & high-density ‘smart’ development | Read More »
Let’s make them bake a cake for once
As the homosexual community erupts in flames over Indiana’s religious freedom law, and sanctimonious businesses threaten to pull out of Indiana(I suggest they go to California and enjoy the much more business friendly environment out there) I can’t help but wonder if Governor Mike Pence will hold the line or if he will cave. I lean toward caving. Just a feeling I get. Never the | Read More »
A Team of Rivals
America is on a precipice, and we are near the point of no return. With over 18 trillion dollars in debt, an unsecure border, a rising threat in the Middle East, an out of control entitlement system, Obamacare, and a looming battle over the future of America’s education system and Common Core, America cannot wait for future elections to tackle these problems. Every four years, | Read More »
