No enforcement of the law?

More evidence that this administration seems to think itself above the law.
“We will not use levies, liens or criminal prosecutions if taxpayers have unpaid amounts related to the individual-coverage provision,” Steven Miller, an IRS deputy commissioner, said Tuesday at a House Ways and Means subcommittee hearing. “There will not be revenue agents involved in this. These will not be audits.”

Not only do they decide what aspects of immigration law they will enforce.
Not only do they pick and choose whether to uphold duly passed laws regarding welfare and work requirements.

But now they are deciding that the funding mechanism for their own signature legislation will not really be enforced.

Open war is upon us, whether we would risk it or not

One of the great mysteries of progressives is how they seemingly refuse to believe that we are not the cause of wars in this world. The only explanation for the act of war perpetrated upon our sovereign land - as all consulates and embassies are designated - is that a specific, identifiable segment of the world's population desires to eliminate our country.

Identifiable? Yes. Islam seeks to rule the world. The infidel has two choices: convert or die. Christianity seeks to rule the world as well. However, the difference is that we do not take it upon ourselves to carry out the sentence of unbelief. True Christians leave that to Almighty God.

So Islam has, once again, attacked our nation. Our feckless leader will denounce it. Maybe he'll send out a few drones. But he refuses to view our situation as war. He refuse to risk open war! Well open war is upon us, whether he would risk it or not.

Why the political is personal

Remember when friends could disagree about politics? Unfortunately, it seems as though that time has past us by. What happened?

There was a time in our history that our interactions with government were quite rare. Daily decisions were not influenced by the policies of the state. If you wanted to build a barn in your backyard, you acquired the resources and built it. If you lacked the resources, you did not build it. If you were unemployed, you went to local merchants and offered to work. You did not visit a government agency to get money or to look for a job. If you needed money, you relied on the charity of your church and neighbors.

Today, the state is now involved in an incredible proportion of our very personal decisions. And since the government is, at its heart, a political entity, political preferences now have very personal ramifications.

In other words, my vote - a political act - now has a personal impact on you. The only way out of this is to shrink the size of the government ... to reduce its influence on daily life.
