I’ve added a new page to the site to provide contact information for Arizona businesses that post signs banning the possession of handguns. Please feel free to send additions. I will post them when I can verify company policy and contact information.
Many of us tend to encapsulate the Christmas story by having it end tidily with three wise men bringing gifts to a cuddly little baby. Some of us know better…
An eight-year-old boy was given an assignment in class to draw something that reminded him of Christmas. His picture got him sent home and ordered to undergo a psych evaluation because of its violent imagery. What did he draw? Machine gun-toting Santa? No (though I think that’d be pretty cool). Vampire Rudolph feasting on elves? No. Headless Frosty with a chainsaw? No.
He drew a picture of Jesus crucified on the cross.
Read that again. The blatant and pernicious anti-Christian bias in our educational system could not be more clear.
Here’s a news flash for the uninformed: the Christmas story has a really violent, bloody episode just before the plot’s climax. If you don’t include the death and resurrection of Christ then Christmas has no meaning whatsoever. This young boy demonstrated what very few adults do—a complete understanding of the meaning of the holiday. Rather than punish we should emulate.
For a supposed Constitutional scholar, lawyer, and professor, our President doesn’t appear to know the document at all. To wit:
U.S. Constitution, Article 1. Section 9. No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.
Ergo without the express consent of the Congress, Obama’s acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize is strictly unconstitutional, as it is awarded by a committee of five persons elected by the Norwegian Parliament (see <http://nobelprize.org/nobelfoundation/org_structure.html>).
Of course devoted Obama supporters will say this doesn’t matter. It should be noted they also have no respect for our Constitution.
