"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat

Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Well Done Governor Perry

Statement by Gov. Perry on President Obama’s Executive Actions

Wednesday, January 16, 2013  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release
Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement regarding President Obama's executive actions:
"The Vice President's committee was appointed in response to the tragedy at Newtown, but very few of his recommendations have anything to do with what happened there.

"Guns require a finger to pull the trigger. The sad young man who did that in Newtown was clearly haunted by demons and no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror.

"There is evil prowling in the world - it shows up in our movies, video games and online fascinations, and finds its way into vulnerable hearts and minds. As a free people, let us choose what kind of people we will be. Laws, the only redoubt of secularism, will not suffice. Let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. Above all, let us pray for our children.

"In fact, the piling on by the political left, and their cohorts in the media, to use the massacre of little children to advance a pre-existing political agenda that would not have saved those children, disgusts me, personally. The second amendment to the Constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president."



  1. Thanks for sharing Dan. We need more people to take charge and act against these idiots in Washington who are only looking out for themselves and their political interests. Our Republic and Liberties are hanging by a thread. Not sure what is meant by Karim's comment, but your opinions and views on the markets as well as the economy and our nation in general are very appreciated and much supported.

  2. On Wednesday's Power Hour radio show, former US Naval Law Enforcement Veteran and US Army Infantry/Reconnaissance Military Veteran Mike Powers has found glaring inconsistencies regarding the Sandy Hook shooting. Powers is no armchair conspiracy theorist and his analysis should be taken seriously. Click here to listen.

  3. Uh, Perry:
    "no gun law could have saved the children in Sandy Hook Elementary from his terror."
    I am sure a gun law allowing guns for protection in schools would have done something.
