Gov. Fallin Correct to Defy OK Supreme Court on Ten Commandments

Between the ignorance of the average American citizen regarding our nation’s rich religious history, and the open hostility by anti-religious Leftists across the country, it seems not a day passes anymore that doesn’t bring with it a story about religious freedoms of ordinary Americans being infringed by those determined to purge every last vestige of Christianity from American life.

A recent example of this came in the form of a ruling by the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which ruled that a Ten Commandments monument currently on the grounds of the state capitol violate the Article II, Section 5 of the state’s constitution, which prohibits the use of any government money or property to benefit religion.

After the ruling, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin declared the state’s high court got it wrong, and refused to remove the monument. State Rep. Mike Ritze, whose family paid for the monument in question, points out that the Court, in demanding the removal, ignored its own prior rulings upholding the right to have a 50-foot cross on the state fairgrounds, and many Native American paintings, monuments, and other pieces of art with religious meanings and tones on display at the Capitol and other state properties.

WaPo reporter Jenna Johnson wonders why Gov. Walker why he wants to deport the Flores family, and their best known member, Dora.

Republicans are evil people who want nothing more than to separate hard-working brown parents from their cute-as-a-button children, at least according to Washington Post “reporter” Jenna Johnson. Today’s WaPo whipping boy is Scott Walker, smeared with innuendo in Ms. Johnson’s Post Politics blog post.

Ms. Johnson shares with her readers Mr. Walker “tells undocumented worker [illegal immigrant – ‘Puter] that immigrants must follow the law.” Oh, the horror! The horror! A candidate for the highest executive office in the land thinks everyone should follow the law! Why, Mr. Walker’s practically a fascist! Ms. Johnson can almost see the torch-lit rallies and jackbooted brown shirts marching.

Hotels Try to Rent Government Power To Stamp Out Online Competition

It is hard to argue with a straight face that consumers don’t benefit from competition.

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is running a campaign for president on income inequality. He said on CNBC “you don’t necessarily need a choice of 23 underarm spray deodorants or of 18 different pairs of sneakers when children are hungry in this country.” He is right, of course, to declare that kids should never go hungry. But it is wrong to argue that competition makes things worse.

Sanders has tapped into a legitimate concern that corporate interests have married government power in a way that stifles competition and stems upward mobility. This is one area where the socialist and the conservative agree – government captured by corporate interests is not good for the American people. Government has helped big corporations in exterminating competition in a way that preserves high profits for the established and well-connected corporation.

Real competition even for such a relatively minor product, like sneakers or deodorant, brings advances in technology, choices and market forces to bear — allowing people to pick the best product at the best price. Sanders is wrong to say that choices are bad because kids are starving, but he is right to be concerned about corporate elites using government to game the system.
