Bill Whittle speaks to just how wrong the idea that “it takes a village” really is.

Anybody got a shovel?

It doesn’t truly make the world go ’round, but it certainly makes my head spin from time to time: money.

Charity says, “No, we won’t explain how we spent the $300,000,000 you all gave us.” It may be too late to get that money back, but I’d recommend giving elsewhere next time. In fact, don’t give to charity if you can give directly to a needy person (preferably through a person you trust so you can remain anonymous).

New head of the IRS is a miracle maker on the make. He’s going to restore something which has not existed for a number of years.

And finally, a brief treatise (if such can be true) on debt.

Visible here. Wow.

Do we have another option?

It’s decision day in South Dakota. I’ve not yet seen numbers from the primaries, but I’m guessing that this round of the battle for the senate goes to, well, enough said.

P&R has a very good question: “When Obama haggles with a car dealer, does he end up paying more than what the dealer initially asked?

How did the EPA become more powerful than the average country? The same way a country becomes more powerful than its neighbors: it keeps doing stuff until someone tells it to stop. It’s time to put the brakes on the EPA.

 

I’m a gun owner and I want gun control

Bill Whittle takes on a critical topic and asks why Republicans in leadership are nearly indistinguishable from those who are on the other side of the aisle.

The putative Democratic party candidate for the the presidency has spoken:

“I think again we’re way out of balance. We’ve got to rein in what has become almost an article of faith that almost anybody can have a gun anywhere at any time. And I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people,” she said.

“[B]ecome an article of faith”? I’d say that rather than being an article it was an amendment, part of the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. She also didn’t speak to the reality that she is accompanied, nay often surrounded, by a number of people who have “guns anywhere at any time.”

The part which I found most interesting (since we have been aware of her position on the second amendment for 20+ years) was as follows:

“Don’t vote for someone who proudly says they will never compromise,” she told the audience. And “don’t give them any money. Find someone in your party who’s reasonable … who’s not going to Washington proudly to destroy what our founders built.”

Seeing that she’s built her political career by making deals with the devil, she is surely in a position to understand the meaning of compromise. But the second part of the statement sounds very much as though I could get behind it. Remember a national political figure who spoke to the fact that his election was going to fundamentally transform America? I do. And that sounds rather much like “proudly destroy[ing] what our founders built,” does it not?

Alas, it is likely that she believes that the founders never really wrote down what they truly believed, and that she and her fellows are the only ones with knowledge of their true intents and desires.
