From Freedom to Fascism in 10 Easy Steps

Thanks to Blurbomat for this gem:

Article in The Guardian outlining the steps needed to turn a Democratic Republic into a Fascist State…while citing examples of how the U.S. Government has already accomplished those steps during this administration.

Funny how things can change in 6 or 7 years, isn’t it?

If you found that article […]

This is just ONE soldier’s story. Imagine some of the others.

If you read nothing else from any soldier of the Iraqi war…or any news story…or any opinion of someone who will never know what it’s like…

This is how we treat our keepers? This is how we treat the people who risk their lives because they truly believe that they’re doing something great […]

TN Legislators vote to allow guns on state-owned property.

Thank goodness SOMEONE realizes that guns aren’t the evil component here.

Hot Air has posted a video of Senator McCarthy wherein she is asked a very simple question that she is unable to answer.

The question? “Your bill proposes to ban weapons with something called a barrel shroud. Can you tell me what that is?”

McCarthy proceeds to dodge and squirm, choosing to try to harp […]

However, we need to stop treating these situations like excuses to lament and start using them as opportunities for change.

I don’t mean the kind of change that causes stricter laws or more discrimination against people who might not fit in with our “ideal” […]
