There is no Bill of Needs in the Constitution. There is a Bill of Rights. The single greatest founding principle of America is this. Our rights come from the Creator. they are natural rights. The government can neither give nor take these rights because these rights are as much a part of us as our hearts and minds are. Liberals love to talk of needs, telling us what we need, or do not need. How much we need how often we need to use our rights, and that our rights must be tempered by need. That is not an American ideal, that ideal comes from Marx, and should be rejected at all costs.
The proper response to anyone that seeks to equate your rights, and what they think you need is this

When you go wild in the wild…..
The other day, I saw something strange, something I had never seen before, it was a bright light, streaking out of the sky, it caused a great noise, and while beautiful to behold, it seemed sinister. What could cause such a thing I wondered. Then, I read this, and realized that my neighbor, who drives an SUV, which of course causes climte change was to blame for lightning!
Via Irish Examiner:
Veteran Irish explorer Pat Falvey believes global warming was to blame for the lightning strike which killed Ian McKeever.
About 1,000 Irish people climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania every year, but Mr Falvey said this is the first time there has been such a tragic accident on the imposing African peak.
Mr Falvey told The Ray D’Arcy Show yesterday he believes the world’s changing climate caused the “freak” weather which hit Mr McKeever and his group as they climbed Kilimanjaro amid torrential downpours.
“It was quite freaky and probably it’s because of the global warming climate change and it happened in an area that he was misfortunate to be in,” he said. “It was a place called Lava Towers which sticks up in the air like a sore thumb. It is a tower of rock in the lunar landscape section.
“It is very unusual to have thunderstorms and rain at that particular level of the mountain but it is just the whole climate is changing.”
Climber and retired Garda Martin Byrne, who climbed Mount Everest in 2011 and recently brought a team of fundraisers to climb Kilimanjaro for the charity Concern Worldwide, said he was very saddened to hear of Mr McKeever’s death.
Good grief! Anyone who hikes in any mountain range knows that one of the greatest dangers, especially above tree lines, is lightning!
Stories like this make my head want to explode
For Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government, more battle tanks and jet fighters are on their way from the United States.
Cairo’s military link to Washington has remained intact, meaning the U.S. will continue to modernize the biggest military in Africa — even as President Mohammed Morsi has decreed near-absolute power for himself and his supporters and opponents battle outside his palace.
Analysts say Egypt’s military buildup presents risks for Washington — and Israel — with the growing influence of the Brotherhood, whose overriding goal is to establish Shariah, or Islamic, law worldwide.
A Pentagon statement to The Washington Times on Thursday said: “We are always reviewing our foreign assistance to make sure foreign assistance advances U.S. objectives and is being used for the right purposes.”
Good grief! Morsi is grabbing dictatorial power for himself, Sharia Law is looming in Egypt, and the threat Egypt poses to Israel is growing. Yet, we are arming those that would seek Israel’s destruction, and ultimately ours too? Frank Gaffney shares my concern
“My principal concern with the Obama administration’s approach to Egypt is they seem oblivious to the fact it is now in the hands of a regime that is deeply hostile to the United States and certainly poses an immediate threat, I believe, to our friends in Israel,” said Mr. Gaffney, who runs the Center for Security Policy. “Under those circumstances, it is alarming that they are continuing to arm Egypt in a way that can only exacerbate the threat.”
Mr. Morsi, a Brotherhood leader before his election, relies on the global fraternity as a power base.
“There are two things that are troubling,” Mr. Gaffney said. “One is the sheer quantity of the weapons that these enemies of the United States have inherited, let alone those they will be getting if we continue to make arms sales with them. The second is the quality of these weapons.”
Gaffney is right. This will lead to no good, stupidity on this scale always does.
President Bush does not stop at talking the talk on compassion and charity, he walks the walk. Unlike the Left, which thinks charity involves taxing the rich, and spreading the wealth around, and pursuing other ventures which involve equality of outcome, rather than equality of opportunity, President Bush actually helps people, with HIS money and HIS efforts.

Here is more from Bush’s trip to Africa
Former President George W. Bush showed his compassionate side by spending Fourth of July at an orphanage in Zambia.
The 66-year-old and his wife Laura visited the Kasisi Children’s Home in Lusaka, one of the largest orphanages in the country.
Pictures released during Mr Bush’s one-week stay in Africa show him tenderly hugging a young boy and holding a baby while his wife looks on.
Much more at the link, including some great photos. I would love to show these to one Kanye West, the no-talent wannabe thug who said the Bush hates Black people.
I love this!
(Bloomberg) — Herman Cain, the beguilingly personable pizza mogul and Tea Party sweetheart who is showing well in the so-far uncompelling Republican presidential nomination campaign, threw a flag early in an interview I conducted with him last week. I had made the dire mistake of referring to him as African-American.
“I am an American. Black. Conservative,” he said, punctuating each aspect of his self-identity. “I don’t use African-American, because I’m American, I’m black and I’m conservative. I don’t like people trying to label me. African- American is socially acceptable for some people, but I am not some people.”
What is it about the word “African” that the candidate doesn’t particularly appreciate?
“Most of the ancestors that I can trace were born here in the United States of America,” he said, hitting those last four words with a hammer. “And then it goes back to slavery. And I’m sure my ancestors go all the way back to Africa, but I feel more of an affinity for America than I do for Africa. I’m a black man in America.”
Amen! African-American is a label designed to separate, along racial lines, I despise labels. The Left loves to label, then divide people to gain power.
Liberating Iraq and Afghanistan? Zero credit! Keeping America safe to terror attacks? Zero credit! Saving a million plus lives in Africa? Zero credit!
