There are two reasons why the Feebs are getting away with this. One is the criminal Eric Holder, who currently usurps the position of Attorney-General of the United States. The other is the voluntary cooperation of Internet service providers. There is little that can be done about Holder until Obama is out of office, but users can exert a lot of pressure on ISPs and social network sites to declare explicitly that private messaging is just that, and that no private messages will be surrendered without due process of law.

Obviously a horrible person, this Haley - meritocratic (libspeak: elitist) and honest (libspeak: insensitive). Wish I lived in South Carolina so I could vote for her.

I definitely missed something. When was the "ObamaCare Amendment" to the Constitution ratified by 2/3 of the States? That's what "Law of the Land" means - at least, that's what it meant when I was taught the Constitution in a public school (II) decades ago.

Yes - use the Left's favorite tool against them. LITIGATE, LITIGATE, LITIGATE. In addition to this suit for causing a nuisance (by encouraging and abetting crime) there should be a class action suit by all the "outed" permit holders for defamation of character, as the article clearly implied that they were a threat to the community.

@rusureuwant2know Bizarre. Even here in the Third World, a diagnosis of TB has to be confirmed by a sputum test and culture before they start throwing drugs at it. Subjecting someone to six months of toxic "medication" on the basis of a skin test is the height of incompetence.

Years ago I read a popular paperback book about vaccination. It was very pro-vaccination, but it was factual, and one of the facts given there made me very suspicious of seasonal 'flu vaccines.
The fact is that it takes 3 to 5 years to bring a vaccine for a new 'flu strain to market. Vaccinations against viral infections take longer to counter with vaccines because viruses cannot be cultured directly like bacteria - a cell culture line first has to be established to serve as a host for propagating the virus. How, then (I asked myself) can there possibly be a vaccine available for a seasonal 'flu that is different every year? Either the vaccinators have to know what's coming, or they have to develop a kind of generic immunization, which isn't likely to work very well. Knowing in advance essentially means controlling the source of the seasonal infection, so I prefer to believe that they're just making a quick buck by peddling whatever they have in overstock as this year's Special. Either way it simply isn't possible for the 'flu vaccination to do any good, except to the producers' bottom line - it's physically impossible because the right tool will never be available when it's needed.
Interesting how the CDC concentrates on data gathered in nursing homes and ignores the fact that statistical correlation does not imply causation. What, for example, if the nursing homes which insisted on vaccinations for their staff were also more careful in ways that actually benefited their patients? And what of the many seasonal 'flu studies not concentrating on custodial care that show NO benefit and some harm from 'flu vaccinations?
The answer, I'm afraid, is that only one point of view is permitted...
@findingthetruth I just looked up "arms" in the index of the Mentor paperback edition of The Federalist Papers - no entry. Likewise "firearms" and "weapons." There are many entries for "militia," but none that I can put my finger on that defines the term in relation to firearms ownership or use. I think the problem here is that the existence and fundamental nature of the militia was assumed, and the debate focused on the the use of the militia in times of war or insurrection, under what circumstances the militia could be put into national service, when it would be appropriate to have a standing national army, and so on. The basic idea that free men could have and bear arms didn't require debate. Under "bill of rights," there is a good deal of debate centering on why such a bill should not be in the body of the Constitution and on the hazards associated with future (mis) interpretations of such a Bill, all sadly predictive of the situation we face now. Opponents predicted that the Bill would be misinterpreted as an exhaustive list of the People's rights, and that is indeed happening. They predicted that the wording of each specific protection of a treasured right would be interpreted to LIMIT the exercise of that right, and that is definitely happening with the 2nd Amendment. The fundamental point of the anti-Bill of Rights folk: We the People are the lawgivers - all rights are ours by default. Only those powers which we explicitly concede to the government should be mentioned in the Constitution. Any mention of our rights in that document contradicts the fundamental nature of the document and seems to limit our rights to those explicitly protected.

@roadtosurfdom Hear, hear! You're right, and what's more what you say is OBVIOUSLY right, but interestingly enough Mowen's prejudices continue to be expressed by the unrepentant Republican establishment and by may Republican voters who ought to know better. That tells me that, barring a major upset in the top ranks of the GOP, the candidate who represents our views will be that of a third party. Sadly, he will not win, because our country is nearly 50% parasites dependent on government theft-based generosity, but at least the vote will reflect the actual ideological composition of the country. The next conservative president will be elected when the new party - call it the Conservative Party - crowds out the GOP or the GOP finally returns to its roots.

@Buddy Rogers There is nothing brilliant about surrender. How do you suppose taxpayers will feel when their champions in Washington allow the tax-and-spend ratpack free access to their surviving wealth to make a point? I know how I feel about it. I will Tea Party the hell out of anybody who plays this game when he comes up for re-election. We need people in Congress who actually WORK for us.
This is an idiotic proposal. Why bother electing conservative politicians and sending them to Washington if the only tricks they know are "roll over" and "play dead?"
@Evermyrtle @JuneGagnon @remesquaddie You don't have to rely on what you hear - good English translations of the Koran and the Haditha are available on-line free of charge - and yes, they are chilling. Ironically, Muslims are discouraged from reading the Koran in any language other than the original classical Arabic - a language few but devoted scholars can read fluently. Thus non-Muslims studying Islam are often more knowledgeable of Mohammad's ravings than devout Muslims are.

@AlRoberts3 @capitalust No need to worry about border defense. The new Texas Republic would have unlimited personal access to weapons, and the newly independent Texans would have a strong incentive to maintain and use them. Remember, too, that during Texas' first struggle for independence people came from all over America to help, in some cases (the name "Alamo" comes to mind) at the cost of their lives.

I agree that actual secession is unlikely, this rapid accumulation of signatures and the corresponding rapid accretion of a secessionist movement that only existed in, at most, two states a month ago, should make it plain to even the most willfully ignorant that Obama is a usurper and a ballot-stuffer, AND THAT MOST OF AMERICA NOW KNOWS IT. Besides, it will be fun to read Obama's exhibition of verbal tap-dancing when he "considers" the petitions.
@Uncle Johnson Thanks! I'm really good at stating the obvious.
I'm acutely aware of the split in Arizona - and probably throughout the Southwest - between the cowboy ethic and patriotism of the ordinary folk and the Bolshevik tendencies of the urban elite who dominate all phases of government employment. This is a particularly nasty example. Arizonans, take back your government, and especially its judiciary!
Quite right. The threat to shut the skies over Texas is an empty bluff. The Union needs Texas FAR more than Texas needs the Union. If the US government cuts off air commerce with Texas, it has in effect sanctioned secession - something I think even the most rabid Federal control freak might shy away from.
