SEE HERE Here's a reflection by Michael Ferris on the recent Mount Vernon meeting.
"We are beginning to reach critical mass in our efforts to use Article V
of the Constitution to rein in the power of the federal government. The
Mount Vernon Assembly is one of the major steps in that effort."
Ferris deals briefly with the concern about a runaway convention. I trust myself, frankly, in the hands of state legislatures collectively more than in the hands of the Washington types who have demonstrated that they are not to be trusted.

SEE HERE The distribution of wealth is not uniform and that is because initiative, effort, skill, and lots of other significant elements in generating wealth are not equal either. When there is more it is everywhere however. The American poor are the least poor poor on the face of the earth so the wailing and moaning about inequality is misguided and misplaced. I've long been annoyed by the fact that most television shows show people living beyond my means and I'm not poor, at least I don't think so. So if I can live that way then the poor probably can't either and the whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth because it generates envy. But maybe the poor in Hollywood (is that a different standard of poor?) do have enough to live like that. I'd like to see the nation continue to prosper and I'm annoyed that the president and his administration seems to be doing everything they can to ensure it doesn't.
SEE HERE I'm so tired of hearing about yet another way that Obama has found to weaken the United States. I've never seen a president so committed to destruction of our economy and our military, a president so disrespectful of his own people and their institutions, a president who frankly acts like a traitorous mole instead of a real president, a president who is simultaneously so disconnected from his duties that he is always saying "I didn't know" or "I found out on the internet just like you", a president who seems to have all his real duties performed by others while he plays gold and takes vacations. In short I've never seen such an exercise in fraud and deception and so many Americans willing to see their nation destroyed and who stand back and do nothing.
SEE HERE Why we should play footsie with Iran is quite beyond me. Those people only want a nuclear weapon to use it but worse if we're going to negotiate the first thing to negotiate is the immediate release of Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini.

SEE HERE During the Bush administration two general grade officers were removed from duty at least that's the number in the article. The Obama administration is purging the military and presumably that is about getting rid of people who won't take orders like "stand down" or "fire on American civilians" but of course I don't know. I just know it is unprecedented and disturbing and most likely a sign of a growing threat of tyranny.
