Well, I would like to live in Ireland and even with the bad economy, give it a go, however I'm not sure just how bad it is.
I don't require a lot to be happy. A small town, good fishing, perhaps hunting (optional), quiet green cool hills to relax and read good books, good neighbors, a nice supporting job of repairing or perhaps a little shop on the main street in town to sell goods and talk with the people. All without permission from a government to do so.

Last week, more than 70 days after President Obama sent our military to attack Libya without a congressional declaration of war, the House of Representatives finally voted on two resolutions attempting to rein in the president. This debate was long overdue, as polls show Americans increasingly are frustrated by congressional inaction. According to a CNN poll last week, 55 percent of the American people believe that Congress, not the president, should have the final authority to decide whether the U.S. should continue its military mission in Libya. Yet for more than 70 days Congress has ignored its constitutional obligations and allowed the president to usurp its authority.

Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC) will be holding their fourth annual Empty Holster Protest April 5-9 and this year two North Texas students will be able to participate.
SCCC members will be wearing empty gun holsters while they attend classes at colleges and universities nationwide. The empty holsters symbolize disarmed students and act as a silent protest "against laws and policies that discriminate against legally armed citizens."
On March 15 a federal judge ruled that Tarrant County College (TCC) violated the First Amendment rights of two students, TCC campus contact Clayton Smith and John Schwertz Jr., when it prohibited their attempt to participate in the protests last fall.

""If you throw a frog into boiling water it will immediately jump out but if you put him in cool water and gradually turn up the heat, he will stay in until he dies." This analogy can be applied to the good ole US of A as well.
"For the most part we still have this inalienable right [First Amendment]. Except for illegal, supposed, DUI Checkpoints, roving wiretaps, and the fact that now it is illegal in Oklahoma to put bars on your windows because they might be "preventing or delaying entry or access by a law enforcement officer."

The truth is that Americans are still losing jobs, the Fed is still inflating, and more regulations are in the works that will prevent jobs and productivity from coming back. We are on this trajectory for the long haul. The claim has been made many times that this administration has only had a year to clean up the mess of the last administration. I wish they would at least get started! Instead of reversing course, they are maintaining Bush's policies full speed ahead. They are even keeping the Bush-appointee in charge of the Federal Reserve! They are not even making token efforts at change in economic policy. And for all the talk of transparency, we hear that some powerful senators will do all they can to block a simple audit of the powerful and secretive Federal Reserve.

Libertarian John Jay Myers announces run for US Congress, Texas District 32, against Republican Pete Sessions, all Republocrats, and unconstitutional laws.
If you're a Libertarian Party candidate for political office and you don't want to end up sounding like just another two-faced mealy-mouthed Republican or Democrat, if you don't want to sacrifice libertarian principles in order to gain a few extra votes from an unsuspecting public, watch John Jay Myers' video and take notes.

When Obama is not busy appeasing militant Islamists and making timid statements against other terrorist nations or organizations, he is busy encroaching on individual rights and the conditions under which American business must operate. Obama is going “soft” on potential enemies abroad, taking a policy of appeasement that is likely to invite attack. He is riding roughshod on individual rights of citizens at home. He has this back-assward.

I rise in reluctant opposition to H Res 560, which condemns the Iranian government for its recent actions during the unrest in that country. While I never condone violence, much less the violence that governments are only too willing to mete out to their own citizens, I am always very cautious about “condemning” the actions of governments overseas. As an elected member of the United States House of Representatives, I have always questioned our constitutional authority to sit in judgment of the actions of foreign governments of which we are not representatives. I have always hesitated when my colleagues rush to pronounce final judgment on events thousands of miles away about which we know very little. And we know very little beyond limited press reports about what is happening in Iran.

Welcome to the age of dozens of Czars within the U.S. government, of the nomination of an “empathetic” Supreme Court Justice rather than one who will apply the Constitution as it was written, an age where government forgets its mission – to protect individual rights – and instead promises to put a Yugo in every garage, ending the War of Terror by renaming it, printing money because it has run out of wealth to tax.

While much of the country’s attention is on other issues, a serious situation is developing in Pakistan that threatens to plunge us into another fruitless and bloody war. It is very frustrating to see that many who were so vehemently against the wars of the last administration have suddenly lost interest in foreign policy simply because we were promised change.
Those still paying attention know that nothing could be further from the truth. Very little has changed, except perhaps rhetoric, but what does that matter when the bombing missions are only getting deadlier? Rather than drawing down violent military interventions into the affairs of other countries, the new administration is escalating the foreign policy of the previous administration.

Is there a shred of real capitalism left in the U.S.A? Obama's standing orders seem to be “Find it, take it out to the wood-shed and shoot it!” Even the IRS tells us that we should not pay any more tax than the tax code requires. However, to Obama, if you rationally try to reduce costs such as taxes, you now are an Enemy of the People

Contradicting, instead of defending, the constitution: this is not change. Moreover, contradicting your own campaign promises, promising to kill more jobs and also to save and create jobs, this is not the change we want. Obama: keep the change. We do not want this kind of change.

"Going 62 in a 50-mph zone, a Jeep barreled west on a slippery, snow-
covered Airport Expressway on Valentine's Day and blew past an Allen
County sheriff's squad car. One traffic stop later, two men inside the
Jeep were outside being patted down by officers. They acted nervous,
according to a police report. At one point they looked as if they
wanted to fight; at another they looked as if they wanted to flee. In
the Jeep's back seat, police found more than $26,000 in cash wrapped
in a stocking cap. Though officers held the two men for a short time

With reports of businessmen planning to reduce their taxable income, hypocritical outrage among politicians about bonus pay, and unbelievable earmark spending, this country is soon to see capital on strike, if it isn't already hitting. Show us some confidence in us. Stop the government interventions. End the breaking of promises. Stop the reckless spending. It is time to read a different book. Put away that book by Keynes, Mr. President.

The woman had 8 kids at once today -a litter- to go with her other 6 kids, and she lives with her parents. Her father works with a contractor in Iraq and apparently will be coming home soon. His unmarried daughter opted to have eggs implanted in her apparently while he was gone. Who will pay for this?
Which leads to the obvious question, was this ethical on the part of the doctor who oversaw the procedure? Or is this like the Easter bunnies, chicks, ducklings, and other creatures which will suffer as they grow to maturity because the parents, caretakers, guardians, regents, or what have you will be unable to afford to take care of them. As their doctor said, "They're so cute." Maybe so, but who will pay for this?
