Imagine for a moment if a Christian fundamentalist pastor publicly threatened a Democratic Party governor about to sign a legitimately passed bill into law with a long-term campaign of public harassment for doing so. Now imagine if that pastor extended that threat to include appearances at the governor´s home and at his children´s sporting events, and that Republican and conservative elected officials on hand during the pastor´s announcement voiced no objection to the pastor´s threats. All of that would be news, right? Well, Detroit pastor Charles E. Williams II, described here as "Pastor, Historic King Solomon Baptist Church

To borrow a line from Mr. Spock, I would say to this so-called pastor, "Sir, you are employing a double negative."

The liberals feel so deeply and care so much more than others that we have to overlook their occasional exaggerations.

Laws controlling the actions of dangerous conservatives must be strengthened,however.

This ´pastor´ is no Christian, fundamentalist or otherwise. Unless you include charlatans of the Jackson/Sharpton stripe in your definition of ´Christian´.

The lunatic left harrassed Governor Walker & our republican legislators for over a year. Other than conservative talk radio & websites it went largely unreported so it continued without public outcry. Can´t condemn stuff you know nothing about !

Then one day a lefty union hack had a couple eggs thrown at his house. This story made front page headlines, above the fold, complete with pictures & outrage over the behavior of conservatives.

I´m still bruised & battered over what our state went through. The hypocrisy from the left, the double standards, the lies, the misinformation & the free pass from the press has just about turned me off of all things political.

The brutal fact is that Democrats have declared everyone who can´t be bullied by them to be enemies of their state. We, who believe in our Constitution and the rule of law, are their enemy and they have given themselves permission to destroy us by any means possible. Since 1967 we have been in a Second American Civil War- and we´ve just lost a huge battle in that war. The Orcs are coming for us and you better be prepared.

What the left is disparate to tear down capitalism.

1) We know our value system is bankrupt, but if we all stick together, we all get paid.

2) We know we are wrong, but don´t judge us - this is why we hate Judeo-Christian ethics.

3) We are lazy and understand that our lack of motivation will take us to abject poverty and that alone will discredit any arguement we put forth - this is why we push for "social justice".

This last paragraph sums up the ´non-coverage´ by our press very well:

~~But when a reasonably prominent far-left pastor threatens a long-term campaign of harassment against a sitting governor and his family, there´s nothing but stone silence. The only reasonable conclusion is that the press doesn´t want the nation to know about the chronic incivility, threats, or even the violence routinely carried out by the left against Republicans and conservatives. The non-exposure only encourages more of the same. It would appear that the press wouldn´t mind seeing that result at all.~~

This kind of dangerous nonsense is why we moved out of Ann Arbor to a small town in the same county. It is also why I won´t substitute teach in A2 or points East either.

I´m so tired of unions, progressives,and Affirmative Action people who think they are owed something and who care less about the good of the state, city, county or country. They are power hungry and anyone who threatens to take that power away, they will have no compunction about doing great harm to that person.

Rick Snyder was not my preferred candidate for Governor, but his signing the bill has certainly elevated him in my approval.

I´ve been attending a different church this year. Last week, the pastor preached on the importance of accepting change. Interesting timing. Today he managed to include the exhortation "Forward!" in his sermon. At that point, several families got up and walked out.

The Pubs certainly don´t speak for us anymore. They´re all addicted to keeping their 178 thou and perks, regardless of how much they have to grovel. I predict race wars are coming, too.

A few years ago ads promoted --send 10 dollars and receive legal registration as a minister all that´s necessary is to maintain a a spot in your home place a Bible on something designated as an altar and begin your church and pay no property taxes .
My brother decided to check out the con and applied then was shocked to receive a legal license. That license even allowed him to claim his home as an official tax free location. He took it to the court house and was told so it´s legal enough and no official classes necessary to qualify. He tucked it away to show real ministers what their competition had become.
Now any more questions about certain people
have acquired this religious designation.

The good citizens of MI voted overwhelmingly for the Right to Work referendum.

Now they need to make clear that they will not tolerate this kind of threat-mongering and lawlessness, and bullying and thuggishness.

The Leftists never ever hesitate to make their loud obnoxious voices heard. Now the civilized members of our Republic need to speak out and NOT back down.

Now. No time to waste.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby.

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them."

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo.

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
