Liberty and prosperity in NJ?

Flag of New Jersey

Putting aside the many regulations, property taxes, highway tolls, income tax and sales tax, just to name a few areas where New Jersey leads the country in its attack on Prosperity, the LIBERTY part of the state’s motto continues to be in the sights, so to speak, of New Jersey’s leftist legislative body.

Hollywood: deadly values

The Hollywood Sign

Two days ago, America got a deadly demonstration of Hollywood values, and what they can do to people. But most people won’t think of that. They should.

Ben Carson: open letter

Ben Carson at CPAC 2014

Dear Dr.  Ben Carson,

First of all I would like to tell you how much you are admired and respected by millions upon millions of Americans.  At that “Breakfast Dinner” where you spoke, the people of this country were blessed to be able to see and hear, for the first time since Obama took office, a person stand up and say what needed to be said.

Right to bear arms and States

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

I am not a Constitutional Scholar but I do have comprehensive reading abilities. With all the new laws popping up nationwide that regulate our right to bear arms, it occurred to me that a basic reading of the Constitution requires that an amendment be passed in order to make these laws constitutionally valid. Therefore, I embarked on a quest to find this amendment, and alas, none could be found. I’m being facetious of course. As a Constitution-carrying American citizen, I am fully aware of the fact that such an amendment does not exist.

Who does Bloomberg think he’s kidding?

It isn’t gun control.

Recently, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg promoted his new $50 million gun control campaign on NBC’s “Today” show, in an aggressive financial push to combat the National Rifle Association’s influence on gun policies.

Second amendment: they don’t understand

The Second Amendment is the reset button on the Constitution

What is wrong with Eric Holder, Joe Biden, and for that matter Barack Obama? What is wrong with the governors of New York, Connecticut, and maybe New Jersey, too? (Not to mention Illinois?) They simply do not understand the Second Amendment to the Constitution. To its purpose, to the reason James Madison wrote it, none of these people have a clue.

We the people are the militia

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

 

To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.

– President George Washington

America knows that one great obstacle this criminal administration is trying to get over is the disarming of the American people. If it is not President Barack Hussein Obama blaming the American people for the crimes he and his administration are responsible for committing in Mexico, then it is his sidekick, Attorney General Eric Holder, trying to teach the media to brainwash America’s young.

Licentious illiberal liberals

Obamacare brought two circuits to a crossroads of the Constitution

Across this nation there are streets, blocks, neighborhoods and cites which exist in various gradients of contrasting security and danger.  It has been pointed out by many, and many times over, that the safest locations for the people to live, work and enjoy life are those areas where the constitutional right to self defense has not been taken away by socialist legislators and liberal judges.

Recess appointment abuse before SCOTUS

Supreme Court, group portrait 2010

Yesterday (January 13, 2013) the United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case of recess appointment abuse. Several Justices heaped open skepticism, if not scorn, on the U.S. solicitor arguing the government’s side. Perhaps now the Supreme Court will rein in the Obama administration and curb one of its most flagrant abuses of the Constitution.

Second Amendment: winning issue

Constitution Day meme. Can Liberty Amendments serve that purpose?

Yesterday, Governor Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) boasted about her favorite Christmas gift: a 9-mm Beretta PX4 Storm handgun. Supporters and opponents, both of Haley and of the Second Amendment, reacted quickly. The two sides obviously set the tone for her rematch against State Senator Vincent Sheheen (D-Camden, S.C.). But it also spoke volumes about the Second Amendment and what the people think of it.
