I am not  a member of the Roman Catholic Church, or actually of any church except the First Baptist Church of Rockport since 1949, but I love and respect the Anchoress and read her blogs on a daily basis. I think this says a lot on women's rights, love and respect and how some in America do not realize how very, very fortunate they are to live in America.

I was very offended by the rainbow colors lighting up the White House, and did you notice the rainbow flag is not really the colors of the rainbow?  It is a brilliant caricature of God's rainbow.
GARY HART?  He is speaking words of wisdom Unintended consequences of the Citizen United decision have guaranteed that even though Tea Parties can get a majority of Republicans in congress, those same leaders of that majority have sold out to those more powerful, more monied, so the people who gave them that majority status are overpowered by the lobbyists. And they have the nerve to punish the conservatives.
We knew he had an agenda.  Now his brother is selling it.  And going beyond this letter the trail of all modern social activism lead back to the White House. The Trojan Horse of disaster.
  Ross Douthat is right in this article, the ruling is against family, not for it. Gay Conservatism and Straight Liberation  He says: Unfortunately I see little evidence that people are actually happier in the emerging dispensation, or that their children are better off, or that the cause of social justice is well-served, or that declining marriage rates and thinning family trees (plus legal pressure on religious communities that are exceptions to this rule) promise anything save greater loneliness for the majority, and stagnation overall.  

Never forget what Richard Fernandez says in this article, You are the Someone.

This is a true story sent to me by a friend who is a chaplain for a Christian volunteer group.   VA covers religious symbols.
Several have told us this campaign again our flag was coming.  It's here.
The raisin case---what took so long? From his grave, Franklin Delano Roosevelt laughs in your face, America. He changed the nation into a socialist state in which the government sets farm prices for the benefit of a few rich people whose money is in tax-exempt
Obama Hasn't Done Ship-  it's about the Navy, people.
God Bless Judicial Watch, they find evidence for what we all knew as true.  Valerie Jarrett was raised by communists
How to give money to your enemy and lose innocent lives at the same time- Obama's new hostage policy.  An unknown government official calls the instigator (not Obama) an idiot.
A perfect explanation of the gimme people.  I tried to go to the original source on this, I'm still trying.
A federal judge has blocked Obama's new fracking rules, for a time.

Sessions and Cruz team up  against Obamatrade   Enough is enough. I cannot vote for TPA unless McConnell and Boehner both commit publicly to allow the Ex-Im Bank to expire—and stay expired. And, Congress must also pass the Cruz-Sessions amendments to TPA to ensure that no trade agreement can try to back-door changes to our immigration laws. Otherwise, I will have no choice but vote no.
We get RFD TV on Dish Network.  Do you?  I want to use a cable service when I move to town, but as far as I can tell the local Times Warner does not carry RFD TV or it twin Rural TV.  They are going to start doing political discussion.  Good for them.
On the 10th anniversary of the KELO decision.  The Supreme Court should hang their heads in shame over this decision.
Mark Meadows: Sometimes you have to change the coach.  I agree, John Boehner is a very divisive leader.
Mexican flag waving graduate has had a cushy ride  and someone legal did not get her benefits.

There is probably much about Gov. Perry we do not know, I surely did not know he and his wife supported Marcus Lutrell  as if he were their own son, well before Lutrell became famous.

We watched Carly Fiorina on C-span when she gave a speech to the Faith and Freedom coalition, we were impressed.  While you are are there you might want to watch the other speeches, too.

Are Conservative Think Tanks dead because of the lack of facts and reason?  Earick Ward discusses the problems.

It's about time!  Detroit Cops seek to find urban terrorists.  Terrible shootings and killings, rape and pillaging so to speak, happen every day in the ghettos of major cities and there is no hew and cry in the major media.  Why?  Those lives matter.

From the Just One Minute blog: Maybe the House committee on government oversight should reach out to the Chinese and see if they can give us the Lois Lerner emails.

This Is Why Paul Ryan Didn't Run for President  and it is very close to the reason I wish Dr. Carson was not running.  He needs to stay above the fray and be a great thinker and statesman.

There have been a lot of people who condemn the south for one man's actions.  This from the census bureau tells us there is more segregation in the northeast and midwest than in the south.

Pope Francis did not want to hear from deniers of AGW, or was it those around him who did not want him to hear?  We will never know, all we know is he has accepted the religion of climate change caused by man.

Recycling really doesn't pay.  What should we do about it? We recycle paper and plastic. I would be more than thrilled if every little thing is not enclosed in plastic that has to be wrestled out or cut to get to the item.

Losing the Merge,Richard Fernandez on the killer in Charleston and the ISIS suicide bombers.

John Hinderacker in Powerline blog says what I have been thinking.  Actually, no: you may be a white Southerner, but unless you went into a black church and murdered nine people, you are not Dylann Roof. Roof was right when he complained that “[w]e have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet.” There was no one but him, a fact that liberals can’t seem to accept. The whole of the southern states have been blamed for this act, called racist and other slanders.  Yet, in his own words Roof admits he did not find co-horts to help with his race war.  It just wasn't happening. I have to admit I get some racist emails from some of you on this list, but I would  not accuse you of thinking or condoning murder of anyone of any color. I might, however, accuse you of bad taste.

I found this in Gateway Pundit: Israel National News reported:  United States Congressman Louie Gohmert revealed Thursday that the Obama administration had “outed” an active Israeli spy mission in Iran. Israel, he said, had infiltrated Israeli spies into mainland Iran via cargo boats.

Republicans, you have alienated a great many conservatives.  The current purging of conservatives in the House is not looking good for the party.  The conservatives are responsible for the majority status, to treat them as pariahs is not a good thing.
