Taking Terrorism Seriously — Alan Caruba

I keep wondering when the world is going to begin to take Islamic terrorism seriously. The world’s leaders and, in particular, the media could begin by calling it “Islamic” or “Muslim” terrorism. The media were, of course, thrilled to discover that America had a small band of homegrown nut cases, a Christian militia arrested before they did some serious harm.

The Meaning of the Second Amendment — Dennis Behreandt

America's Founding Fathers operated from an understanding of the Natural Law. They argued, and believed, as Jefferson summarized in the Declaration of Independence, in the natural rights of mankind, i.e., the rights to life, liberty, and property. If one has a right to life that can not be abridged by another, then it follows that one has a right to defend one's life from attempted abridgment.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for...forgiveness.

Healthcare and Economic Realities — Ron Paul

This legislation is just the next step towards universal, single payer healthcare, which many see as a human right. Of course, this “right” must be produced by the labor of other people, meaning theft and coercion by government is necessary to produce and distribute it.

Duke Keeps Pro-Life Group Out of Women’s Center During ‘Week for Life’

Duke University's Women's Center has canceled an event about motherhood because the sponsor was engaging in pro-life expression elsewhere on campus. A Women's Center representative told Duke Students for Life (DSFL) that "we have a problem" and an ideological "conflict" with the event, which was supposedly canceled to protect Duke women from encountering the event during the group's "traumatizing" pro-life "Week for Life."
