President Obama seems to think that the states don't have the authority to refuse Syrian refugees. Balderdash! That's the wrong debate. The US Constitution was built on a platform of state sovereignty. The better question to ask is: What authority did the states delegate to the central government to accept refugees?
A Gun in the Hand Beats two in the ...
I thought of a new Beckerism. Pilots will tell you that they'd rather be on the ground wishing they were in the air rather than in the air wishing they were on the ground. Likewise, gun owners would rather have quick access to a gun they don't need rather than not having a gun that they do need.
Democrat Presidential Candidates
I've always liked the honesty of Bernie Sanders. There is little
we agree on, but I like the fact that he is the lone liberal who is honest
enough to call himself a Socialist. I respect that.
Conversely, the Clintons have a rich history of liberalism, deceit, and one scandal after another. I've always thought of Bill Clinton as a gutteral opportunist and Hillary Clinton as evil. That was back in the 1990s. Unfortunately, I've not seen anything in subsequent decades to change my mind. If anything, my original assessment has been reinforced.
Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood Shooting
My heart and prayers go out to the victims and their families. It is always tragic when innocent people (both born and preborn) are killed.
