No provision of our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprise of the civil authority. –Thomas Jefferson
Alejandrina Cabrera wants to serve the citizens of San Luis, Arizona; she is running for a seat on the city council. This fledgling parliamentarian’s hopes and dreams of shepherding the citizenry into the 21st century, contributing at city council meetings through various avant-garde channels of communication such as articulating her thoughts and ideas via charades, nodding and shaking her head when it seemed appropriate, perhaps even employing an interpreter, were unceremoniously ceased and desisted. It was the highest of judicial authority for the state of Arizona, the Arizona Supreme Court, which applied, with prejudice, the legal kibosh on her campaign. Sadly, Alejandrina has been legally barred from serving as an elected official in the state of Arizona.
According to scientists, about 4 billion years ago, a soupy mixture of non-living protein based enzymes spontaneously and miraculously sprang into a form of life known as prokaryotes. From this soupy goop, man did come, evolving first into a monkeyish form with an affinity for climbing trees, scavenging for food, and busy racing to the top of the food chain. Fast forward a couple of billion years to the current state of American politics, and the argument that man is speeding down the highway of de-evolution possesses more credibility than it does kookiness.
The bearing of new laws, new resolutions, new beginnings, and fresh starts are paramount to start a new year; 2012 is no exception. Eric Holder welcomed the new year by submitting a manuscript for a book he penned over the Christmas holidays. I was able to obtain a draft of the preface of a self-help book from Harlequin Publishers that he submitted for publication.
A United States citizen’s exclusive rights guaranteed by the Constitution end at the U.S. border. Each state within the United States has a state line, and rights exclusive to a state end at the state line; each state consists of counties, and rights exclusive to a county end at a county line; each county has cities or towns, and rights exclusive to a city or town end at the city or town limits; and within each city or town exists private property, and the owner’s rights exclusive to that property end at the property line. The United States Constitution guarantees and protects individual and collective rights, but each right ends where another right begins.
One of the fascinating capabilities of the human brain is the ability to process multiple input modalities, giving the proprietor of the brain the ability to produce functional, reasonable, and accurate conclusions. The brain can integrate the sensory input of a given situation, previous observations by the brain’s proprietor, factor in the previous outcomes from previous observations, then calculate the probability of the authenticity and credibility of a situation based on the brain’s ability to produce a judicious and cogent conclusion based on the aggregate of input. When assessing the validity of something, this is referred to as the smell test; when using this process to make a decision, this is referred to as commonsense. This particular function has been successfully eliminated from the brains of liberals through selective breeding, DNA manipulation, and aggressive indoctrination.
It has been a challenge to compare the Occupy Wall Street entrenchment to the Tea Party movement due to sporadic, biased, and negative coverage of Occupy Wall Street by the mainstream/liberal media. The mainstream/liberal media have demonstrated with their history of affectionate and tender coverage of Tea Party rallies that they are sycophantic water carriers for the Tea Party, the GOP, and conservatives.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Winston Churchill
Liberalism in the United States has been subjugated to the omnipresent wrath of degeneration. It has digressed to the point that liberal policies can only lead a learned person to the conclusion that the malignant ideology, philosophy, and cerebral deficiencies of this league of mountebanks is patently indistinguishable from any organized group bent on destroying the fundamentals of this country.
Two actors have re-created the private conversation between Barack Obama and Paul Ryan as Obama explains how his stimulus and policies have created 2.5 million jobs, reduced the deficit, and prevented another Great Depression.
