“With this action, Mr. Garland has provided an object lesson on the folly of assuming that a law degree with good grades from the right school and ‘proper demeanor’ are adequate qualifications for a judicial position — or, for that matter, a government attorney. Love him or hate him, the nation owes Senator McConnell a debt of gratitude for advising Mr. Obama that the Senate would not consent to the appointment of Mr. Garland to the Supreme Court.” —Minnesota
“I do not think one has to have F-15s and nuclear bombs to overthrow the United States. Biden and his owners know they just send in Marxists disguised as teachers, religious leaders, entertainers, reporters, community organizers, civil servants, and politicians, and in a few decades you take over the government without a shot being fired. They are proving it as we read this article.” —North Carolina
“If General Milley really wants to know about ‘white rage,’ he should watch the white people raging in the faces of Republicans trying to walk back to their hotels after the Trump event in the White House on August 28, 2020. He might also check the many times young white women can be seen screaming insults into the faces of black police officers trying to maintain order at a BLM protests. What a phony this general is.” —Texas
“I am an old U.S. Air Force veteran. When I served as a ballistic missile launch crew member, my commanding officer was black, as were several of my teammates. We lived and worked together in harmony. All this racial disparity crap really disturbs me — and I might add, most of my friends, black and white. There is an old saying: ‘The more you stir sh*t, the more it stinks.’ That is exactly what the radical left politicians are doing. The more they espouse this crap, the more people they can upset. Please stop!” —Florida
“Personally, I would go for disbanding and eliminating the IRS altogether. Everyone just pays the same percentage of their income for taxes to run a trimmed down and constitutional government without all the spiffs and perks for any groups. Make it a government by and for the people, not related to any kind of group thing whatsoever. Period. Also, eliminate federal imposition on anything the states can handle by themselves. Let Nevada have its gambling, if that’s what the people want and vote for. Let California have its dope; it’s what they voted for (or did they?). Federal government maintains military only.” —Washington
“You note the policy has been in effect in California for almost 50 years. This is peanuts compared to rent control in New York City. NYC has had rent control since 1947, just short of 75 years. It proscribes what landlords can charge for rent. If this is not a taking of property, then what is?” —Wyoming
“The sheriff declared the school board meeting an unlawful assembly. An ‘unlawful assembly’?! The people just showed up for a meeting called by the school board. Furthermore, the FIRST Amendment to our CONSTITUTION clearly states, ‘Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.’ The school board needs to dust off its copy of that treasured document and listen to the people.” —Georgia
