Yesterday, was indeed a great day to be an American, and our Republic has averted disaster for yet another day… Not only did the Senate vote down the Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill, but the Supreme Court struck a blow against racism in our schools, AND the House of Representatives voted to protect our First Amendment right to the Freedom of Speech which was under attack by Democrats.
An effort by over 100 Democrats in the House of Representatives to quell freedom of political speech by using taxpayer dollars to re-enact the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” failed miserably, the final vote barring the FCC from repromulgating it was passed 309-115 (See the Roll Call here). Please note that ALL of the votes in favor of restricting Freedom of Speech were DEMOCRATS!!! Read the rest of this entry »

Edited for typos & clarity – Saturday, June 30, 2007
The Supreme Court of the United States struck a blow against racism in our schools today — despite some of what you might have heard on your local news this evening. I, for one, am happy about that.
Martin Luther King, Jr. preached about judging people on the content of their character, and not the color of their skin. On Saturday, August 28, 1963, in Washington D.C. he spoke the following words;
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
– Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream”, August 28, 2007
Affirmative action programs, and using race as the basis for ANYTHING in this country is the OPPOSITE of what MLK, Jr. preached. It is the OPPOSITE of what those who fought for civil rights were fighting for. I just saw on my local news a representative from the NAACP stating that this ruling set back Civil Rights causes. I see it as completely the opposite.
ALL schools should be of good enough quality to attend, should be safe enough to attend, and offer not only equal, but the BEST education you can offer to anyone. Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks are due to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) for exposing yet another lie about the AMNESTY bill currently being debated in the Senate.
Today, the Senate voted against an amendment that would prevent the GRANTING OF LEGAL STATUS TO FELONS — including those who are subject to court orders calling for their deportation!
This is just the latest proof to come out that exposes the lies President Bush and backers of this Illegal Immigrant AMNESTY bill have told to the American people… Read the rest of this entry »

UPDATE: August 19, 2008
A Texas School District recently voted to allow teachers and administrators with the proper certifications to carry guns within the school. To read an article about this decision as well as links to more information, please see the following post here at The Liberty Rocks Blog – Texas School District To Allow Teachers to Carry Guns
HOW LONG BEFORE WE LEARN
THAT GUN CONTROL LAWS
ONLY APPLY TO LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS?
Do “gun-free school zone” laws put our children at greater risk? And, what lessons can we learn from yesterday’s tragedy at Platte Canyon High School in an effort to prevent future, perhaps even more horrific tragedies.
I would like to take a moment to remark on one the issues that will most assuredly assert itself in light of the tragedy at Platte Canyon High School yesterday. Many people were reminded of the horrors of Columbine, especially because the responding law agencies were the same as on that day (with the exception of Park County). Colorado media sources have already sought commentary from the parent of one of the Columbine students, Mr. Tom Mauser, whose son Daniel was killed at Columbine*. Mr. Mauser took the tragedy of his son’s death as impetus for pushing for a slew of gun-control laws that ultimately disarm the wrong people. Even here in Wausau, Wisconsin the newscasters at ABC’s Channel 9 (WAOW-TV) showed as a feature related to this tragedy information about a group, Student Pledge, Inc., that was created in the wake of Columbine which focuses on ending school bullying which was a factor in the Columbine tragedy, but has absolutely nothing to do with the events in Bailey yesterday.
While these activists, and their intentions are good, and – in the case of the group featured during the WAOW News Broadcast – can help to decrease school violence perpetrated by fellow students, many are missing the real lesson that can be learned from this tragedy. That is, in my opinion, the fact that our students in classrooms across the country are “sitting ducks” for those criminals considering these types of actions. In particular the “gun-free school zone” laws only exacerbate the situation.

Special Thanks to ABC for making it available!
Democrats are usually known for their vigorous defense of the First Amendment, however developments today show their true colors; they are only in favor of the First Amendment when it pleases them…
The following letter has been published in a press release available at U.S. Newswire. It was written by Democrat leaders to Disney/ABC and threatens their broadcast license in a pretty clear way.
I think anyone concerned about Freedom of Speech can see why this is a critical development, and one that must be quashed immediately. Our politicians — from either “side” — must not be allowed to threaten our right to freedom of speech. If we allow our politicians to control our airwaves we have started down a slippery slope. Considering that these charges by the Democrats are also based upon political concerns it may signal the beginning of threatening of speech by political dissidents — on BOTH “sides”.
