In response to one of the most intrusive bills to come through General Court, Rep. Majorie Smith wrote this short-but-sweet opinion piece. Seems the legislature wants to play parent for young women under 18 who seek an abortion but do not have a parent/guardian to accompany them.
I attended a great class presented by NH House Representative and Political Director of the NH Liberty Alliance, Dan Itse. The New Hampshire Constitution is an amazing work. It gives a revealing look into what the founding fathers original intent was. The people are the sovereigns and the masters of their government. Not the other way around.
To hear what David Boaz is thinking about the current Presidential race/candidates and his latest book, ”The Politics of Freedom: Taking on the Left, the Right, and Threats to Our Liberties” tune in this coming Friday, February 15th at high noon to 1pm.
In Afghanistan, we had to be wary of a common tactic of warlords providing us information on Taliban/Al Qaeda positions, in hopes we would attack them; when actually these were merely the positions of rival warlords. We were often unwittingly used too settle petty scores among tribes with faulty intelligence. Since then, my whole outlook has changed, because this goes on the world over.
