Way to go! Keep up the good work! We are continually losing our liberty! It's good to see somebody come up with your point of view! Again, it going!
By the way, judge- I'm originally a Jersey boy (at 82 years). Originally from Bergen County. Got too rich for my blood! Do you have an e-mail address?
I'm a lifelong republican and die hard Fox News watcher. That being said, if Fox is going to start attacking Police and Fireman because their pension is better than some others, I'm switching stations. Napolitano and Varney just lost alot of viewers.
This is America, the land of the free. Why are these views not common? Why is freedom and liberty a secondary (or worse) issue? Why do our leaders want to force their warped views of morality and social order on us?
Perhaps, but they're going to gain the attention and views of those paying for these pensions and other benefits. Unionism is an important part of American society, but unions must not be insulated entirely from market conditions. Unions must be an integral part of efforts to improve the quality of life in America, they must be innovative in finding new and better ways to do things, and not just use their political clout to pad their own pockets at someone else's expense. Each individual must earn their way.
…Because to too many people, the Constitution is not a standard to be upheld, but more of a symbol; an icon, but not something that has to be adhered to stringently. Only if we return to seeing the Constitution as a hard and fast standard that must be stringently upheld, will we truly be free. Otherwise the law will always be arbitrary, and we will live under a system that upholds the rule of men and not law. Such a system is not a constitutional republic, but a tyranny.
If the religo-statist Huckabee were intellectually honest instead of a faith based, deluded bible thumper, he would take his cues from logic and reason instead of his personal and unsubstantiated belief system. The government has no business in the institution of marriage or any other voluntary interaction between two consenting adults so long as their activity deprives no other person of life, liberty or property. Huckabee's conservatism or any libertarian ideals he may adhere to (if any), will always give way to his blind, theocratic adherences. Huckabee's greatest contribution to freedom and liberty may be his inherent knack for illustrating what happens when the sanctimonious, Religious Right desire to see religion and government blended together. It always a volatile and dangerous mix.
I'm a big fan of the judge, even though he occasionally entertains Stuart Varney and other such Wall-Street cut-throats. But I must remind him of something. When he speaks of the God of nature and of natures laws, that it is naturally impossible for same-sex couples to produce off-spring, and thus completely annuls his argument with Gov. Huckabee. That God of nature and of natures laws is a masonic thing anyway! Other than that, keep 'em straight judge!!! Keep your eyes on the skies, Jesus is coming!!! (Luke21:28) Don't get numbered amongst the goats! (Matt.25:32-46)
I was an emt, can you tell me why fire starts at 40,000 a year, but an emt who works for a private company starts at $10 an hour? Like all union government employees, Cops and Fire make way too much money, while this economy is killing everyone else. So what, we can speak out against other government employees that make too much money, but cops and fire are some sort of sacred cows? They just gained a viewer. It's good for their viewership, to replace government worshiping party loyalists with independent rational men.
