(4) Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.
“The public should be particularly skeptical when you have elected politicians of either party enacting rules limiting the ability of public citizens to criticize the behavior of their elected officials.” – Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX
Sources Report Senate Republicans Caving on Guns
Sources inside the Senate tell me that the Republican Conference is scared to death of the tactics of Senators Lee, Cruz and Paul – that it is supposedly putting them in a tough spot.
Several of the Republicans are using the Manchin-Toomey compromise plan as an excuse to cave on the gun filibuster. They claim that Senators Lee, Cruz, and Paul are running ahead of the conference in their insistence on a filibuster.
What they fail to see is that the cloture vote is the vote to stop the gun legislation from passage.

Homeschooling: The Future of Liberty
A common feature of authoritarian regimes is the criminalization of alternatives to government-controlled education. Dictators recognize the danger that free thought poses to their rule, and few things promote the thinking of “unapproved” thoughts like an education controlled by parents instead of the state. That is why the National Socialist (Nazi) government of Germany outlawed homeschooling in 1938.

Once again lamenting Obama’s not king: “What I will say is that this is not the president’s idealized budget. It is not what he would do if he were king, or if only people who supported his proposals were in Congress.” –White House Press Secretary Jay Carney
Blame the sequester: “It is important to bear in mind that the March household and payroll surveys are the first monthly surveys to look at employment since the beginning of sequestration. While the recovery was gaining traction before sequestration took effect, these arbitrary and unnecessary cuts to government services will be a headwind in the months to come, and will cut key investments in the nation’s future competitiveness.” –Obama’s economic adviser Alan B. Krueger
Rose-colored glasses: “I think it’s important to look at the overall picture on the economy. We have made a lot of progress, 6.5 million private sector jobs created over the last three years. The housing market’s coming back, manufacturing’s coming back. The American auto industry is back, but there’s more to do. And so, we shouldn’t focus on any individual month because if we created 290,000 jobs this month, I would have given you the same answer, which we’re making progress, but we have to do more.” –Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer
Village Academic Curriculum: “The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms. The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional. This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states. So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.” –Connecticut Northeast Middle School social studies worksheet
“Here’s something I didn’t know. When Vice President Biden and President Obama meet for lunch at the White House, the chef goes out of his way to personalize their meals. For example, Biden’s lunch always comes with a toy.” –comedian Jay Leno
“The Associated Press removed the phrase illegal immigrant from its style-book [last] week. The editors feel the label is stigmatizing. From now on, all Associated Press reports will simply refer to an illegal immigrant as a person diagnosed with Happy Feet.” –comedian Argus Hamilton
“The Department of Homeland Security defended their large ammo purchases saying that they buy in bulk to ‘significantly lower costs.’ That’s true. Now try it with fence-construction materials.” –Fred Thompson
“The Republicans just need to take Obama aside and tell him, ‘Shut up, you idiot. You lost on this [gun control] issue. Lost. Clock has expired. It’s over. You think you’re winning just because you’re the only one on the field still trying to play because everyone else has left to the victory ceremony. No one cares about your stupid gun control anymore and only a dwindling number of really dumb people think it will actually achieve anything. We know you hate freedom, Obama, but your just going to have to find a different one to attack. Here, have a cookie.’ Omit that last part if you don’t have a cookie to give him; teasing him with a cookie would just be mean.” –humorist Frank J. Fleming
