From Bastiat...and I'm paraphrasing.
The law says don't do unto others what you wouldn't have done to you. This is the leg breaking and pocket picking. There is a critical flaw in our interpretation of this because we put government in the role of the enforcing when we state something like this.
What we forget is that our government is actually the Constitution. It doesn't do anything so forceful on us.

"I cannot get it into my head that the law, which is force, can be usefully applied to any purpose other than repressing wrongs and maintaining rights."

Bastiat again...of course:)

57 mins 15 secs ago

That repressing wrongs is a wide open interpretation for some? It is the war on drugs for example? I think the "and" is an important word in that sentence. We have the right to consume what we choose. You can't have a war on drugs AND maintain rights.

That is very interesting question because when God told Adam he can eat all the fruits of the garden except one fruit, is that a law?

I disagree Joe. Justice is inherent. Justice is that all of us, the same, must work in order to live, to prosper, and to better ourselves. The right of each of us is limited by the absolutely similar right of all others.
The purpose of the law is to recognize this limit and see that it is respected.
If the law allows a few to infringe on the limit, the law is unjust.

There are 3 pdfs of Bastiat's writing embedded into this article. If you have questions about the law, these are a great place to start.

So yeah, the Revolutionary War was about a very strong objection to King George holding on to the colonies...way too tightly. It wasn't that he wouldn't let them go, he wouldn't leave the people alone.
What kind of people get on a really big and uncomfortable ship to sail off to a place unknown? Are they the type of people who are dependent on heavy handed authority? Are they they the type of people to not be bothered when the fruits of their labor were seized by government?

The Bible warns us that Man's Heart is DECEPTIVELY wicked. ie. "He isn't to be trusted". Therefore one should NEVER surrender their own leadership to any Force, Face, Fear, Foe, or Fact. Why we slept in comfort, we have surrendered to ALL of them. Because we did, today we all have BIG issues about something. Truth is; We Are All Right about our issues because they are PERSONAL to us.

John, those moments when we feel these touches of Freedom, are what gives us HOPE for the future. However, We Are Going To Have To Fight Like We Never Dreamed We Would Need To, In Order To Regain Moments Like That. In our own strength this will be impossible, but if We The People get ready, and Listen to The Call coming from within Us, and be Obedient to it, We will Overcome the (Big Wigs).. Sue, your issue is the military. (don't give it up!)

As he puts it in the video, Isis is no treat to us, it's all fear tactics our government uses on us.

Mississippi is considering pulling the plug on issuing marriage licenses altogether after the Supreme Court struck down bans on gay marriage Friday morning.

I'm thinking that I should enter into a civil union with a group of my friends so that we might enjoy the social security benefits collectively.
Could we pull our tax burden down if we can file as married...I mean civilly unioned? Of course, it could all be a wash with that Obamacare marriage penalty mess, but who knows, the mess is too hard to understand until you get into it yourself and work through the details.

To understand today’s crises in Iraq, Syria, and Iran, one must grasp their shared Lebanese connection. This assertion may seem odd. After all, what’s the big deal about Lebanon? That little country hasn’t had top headlines since Israel deigned to bomb and invade it in 2006. Yet, to a large extent, the roots of the bloody tangle now enmeshing the Middle East lie in Lebanon: or to be more precise, in the Lebanon policy of Israel.

Yes, but she will not be prosecuted because of "Clean Break". In 1996 Bill Clinton was president, but the Bush administration moved the operation forward. Obama carries on. Note that everything and anything was fair game in achieving the goals.

That was an interesting chart. I wouldn't say it's the end all guide to newspeak, but I think a conversation about the words is very worthwhile. It's most important that we know ourselves what we mean by the words we use, but it sure helps during a conversation to be able to discern what word or words might be misunderstood by others as well.
