...though if he were really LARPing, he'd be docked XP for breaking character. I'm just sayin'.

Rand Paul announces he's running for President next year. That's someone I can vote for, which is why the GOP leadership is going to do everything in its power to ensure that Jeb Bush gets the nomination.

Obama doesn't care about what messes he makes for his successors. Sure, Iran's going to get the bomb, but they won't do it on his watch, so who cares, right?

Another progressive who doesn't understand how laws work. You obey the law because of the threat of government force. It's that simple; this isn't something like deciding to eat a box of cookies despite your diet. If you disobey the law you can be killed for it.
You don't have to obey the law, after all; it's just that there are consequences for choosing not to obey it. You're free to do as you like!
...except that freedom means there are no consequences for your actions. That's the entire philosophy behind freedom of speech, that there are no government consequences for speaking your mind: you can say that Obama is a full-blown idiot, and Obama is not allowed to send the police after you.
If Obama can have you arrested for calling him an idiot, you're not free to call him an idiot.
We use the phrase “force of law” for a reason: laws that are not backed by force aren’t laws; they’re suggestions. We use the phrase “law enforcement” for a reason. We use the phrase “police force” for a reason. If a law is not followed, it is not unusual for the government to dispatch its resources to force compliance or to levy punishment.This simple concept is beyond the comprehension of progressives.

After the last post, I went to sleep. I woke up with most of a migraine. Some food and ibuprofen muted the headache enough that I was able to get a couple of chores done, and even write a few more pages...but the headache isn't gone and all I really want to do now is to go lay back down. *sigh*
