I’ve already discussed the proposed Quran burning for this weekend by Dove Outreach in Florida. To make matters more interesting, or worse – depending upon how you look at it – apparently the church has worked together at least once before with Fred Phelp’s Westboro Baptists (according to a radio interview given by a local talk show with Mr. Jones). On top of that, material | Read More »

Terrorism, it Just Works
Way back in my early school days we learned about terrorism. I don’t remember much, the part of the world where terrorism was seemed so far away. BUT, the one thing I did understand and remember to this day is this. Civil Society cannot win a war against Terrorism. If you treat the terrorists as if they were civil members of society, they will win. | Read More »
Action This Day: Dearborn Mayor, Chief Contact Info – Arrested Orderly Christians for Lit Handouts
I saw the video a day or so ago** and was modestly outraged… until I learned today that the Christians handing out literature at a Muslim public civic event were arrested for ‘disorderly conduct’. Now I’m livid. Watch the video and judge for yourself just how ‘disorderly’ they are. They even surrender their video equipment without argument when asked. Now I always want cops | Read More »
A State Before The Constitution
Arizona’s immigration law is a statement of unprecedented accuracy that the Federal Government has no duty, authority, or capacity to protect our borders with neighboring nations. This is how relations were between the states themselves before the Constitution.

Time for GA to Become the Second AZ
It’s time for GA to take a close look at protecting the rights of its citizens that the US Government will not defend as constitutionally mandated. (H/T Hotair.com) For those of you who have read more Jefferson than you have the US Constitution, the first clause of the first amendment actually says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the | Read More »
Twentieth Century Conservative, Twenty First Century Extremist.
We are all pretty much used to the tactics of the left, and I mean left, not liberal or Democrat. The verbal abuse, the exaggeration, the revision of history, not to mention the occasional criminal damage or assault. You get acclimatized to it after a while and accept it as part of the course. There is one thing that really gets to me though, being | Read More »
Article V, The States’ ultimate check on healthcare and the Federal government

When I got to speak to the group I asked them why we, in the form of the states, were not dealing with the problem directly under Art. V of the Constitution in | Read More »
Is there a Right to Healthcare?
According to long established tradition in the English common law, and as explained by the eminent Blackstone, the three rights in the Declaration of Independence are as follows. Life is the right to live, intact with one’s limbs, eyes, and organs. Any physical damage that cripples or removes a limb, or eyes, or kills one violates this right. This definition was important because according to | Read More »
The Declaration of Grievances and Resolves
While I had been thinking about something like this for several weeks, the document that follows was very much inspired by Nessa’s diary of a few days ago. I’m not declaring it to be the official RedState Resolves (I’m fairly certain that Erick Erickson and the rest of the Mods would have something to say about that!). This is intended as my statement of Grievances | Read More »

en⋅ti⋅tl⋅i⋅tis [en-tahy-tl-ahy-tis] noun. a psychosis characterized by the subject’s inability to discern rights from entitlements, most common among proponents of “social or redistributive justice.” Commonly diagnosed alongside fairmania*, patients afflicted with entitlistis are functionally incapable of distinguishing the concept of unfettered access from the concept of provision.

What Is A Right and Does Health Care Belong in That Discussion?
Recent political discussion has brought up the concept of the “right to health care”. It is the view of some folks that If there is something you need, you have a right to it. In order to have a “right”, first you need to understand what is meant by a right. Let’s start with this example: if you are hungry, do you have a right | Read More »
ATF: All Your Amendment are Belong to Us
As far as the ATF is concerned, the words in the Constitution don’t mean what the Founders said they mean. They mean what the 9 unelected judges on the Supreme Court say they mean. Well, until they change their mind, that is. This year, Montana and Tennessee passed the “Firearms Freedom Act” – which under state law exempts firearms, parts and ammunition from federal regulation under | Read More »
Health Care IS a Right, BUT…
I have a right to obtain all the health care I want or need. But that doesn’t mean I have the right to make you pay for it.
