A bully walks into a bar, approaches a peaceful guy, and karate chops him on the head. When the peaceful guy gets up, the bully says, “That was a warning shot from America.”
Most people try to resist temptation but give in eventually, making excuses about "being human." Their fault brings a weight of guilt and shame, so they confess their lapse and promise they will improve. The good news is that we can learn to endure temptation and resist its appeal.

Fascinating Fox Panel on Rand Paul is a fight over the definition of a Neocon.
Edit: Real Clear Politics quickly removed this from their video highlights and changed the summary explanation.
There exists a group of people who purport to have a document, in excess of 200 years old, that entitles them to a portion of the fruits of my and your labor - to do with what they please.
What, here, is truely absurd?
Personally, I'm with Jefferson.
What is your opinion? Can the dead justly bind the living to a perpetual contract? If so, explain.

MILFORD, N.H. — Less than 24 hours after Rand Paul announced his White House bid before hundreds of jubilant, flag-waving supporters, his fledgling presidential campaign seemed to be defined more by his defiant performance when the cheering stopped.
It presents the case that he is 'Rand, the irascible'.. without condemning him. It presents him as 'feisty' (imo).

Rand Paul Gets the TV Spotlight and Turns It on Interviewers in Testy Encounters
“No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, listen,” he chided Savannah Guthrie of NBC News on Wednesday morning after she summarized Mr. Paul’s views on foreign policy in a way he did not like. He then proceeded to lecture Ms. Guthrie on the proper way to conduct an interview.
Rand Paul the irascible is rearing his head again, disquieting what should be a week of uncontroversial news after announcing that he would seek the Republican nomination for president.
In February, Mr. Paul told a CNBC interviewer, Kelly Evans, to shush, saying, “Calm down a bit here, Kelly, let me answer the question.”
The Scandal That Could Blow Up Rand Paul's Machine
ON DECEMBER 26, 2011, a week before Iowa's first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses, an influential Republican state senator named Kent Sorenson and his wife, Shawnee, arrived at a steak house in Altoona, a suburb of Des Moines. A goateed Mr. Clean look-alike, Sorenson was a hot commodity. His deep ties to the state's evangelical leaders and home-schooling activists made his endorsement highly sought after by GOP presidential hopefuls, particularly the second-tier contenders who had staked their campaigns on a strong Iowa showing. Sorenson had picked his horse early, signing on as Michele Bachmann's Iowa chairman in June 2011—a coup for the Minnesota congresswoman's upstart campaign.
Joining the Sorensons was a bespectacled political operative named Dimitri Kesari, the deputy campaign manager of Rep. Ron Paul's 2012 presidential bid. As caucus day neared, Ron Paul's campaign was surging in the polls but needed a late boost if he wanted to meet his goal of finishing in the top three.
That's where Sorenson came in.
NEW YORK (AP) -- It's a chilling moment: A message appears on a computer screen, saying the files are encrypted and the only way to access them is by paying a ransom.
It happened at Jeff Salter's home health care business last December. The network of nearly 30 computers at Caring Senior Service was infected with ransomware, malicious software that hackers use to try to extort money from people and businesses by preventing them from opening or using documents, pictures, spreadsheets and other files. If computer users don't pay, there's no way they can access their files.
On your mark. Get set. SPIN!!!!!!!!!!!
According to data provided by Facebook, in the 24-hour window of Cruz’s announcement, “2.2 million unique people on the social media platform generated 5.7 million interactions (likes, posts, comments, shares) related to Ted Cruz and his announcement.”

By he way, the laugh track makes this really creepy
On Monday the Tennessee House of Representatives passed a bill that makes it illegal to carry a fake gun within 150 feet of a school. The ban on fake weapons was included in a larger bill that would invalidate local laws that prohibit people who hold gun permits from taking guns near schools. The Tennessee bill aligns the state law with the federal “Guns Free School Zones Act,” which was originally passed in 1990. The law makes an exception to carry a gun near a school if:
