Brilliant!

***The Mall of America, among other venues, has been targeted by a terrorist group. They have a concealed carry ban, and a nice big sign announcing it.

How boneheaded can you get?? They really can't lawfully do this, because it is legal in Minnesota to carry a concealed weapon. It's the principle of the thing. Why would you advertise that your customers are unable to defend themselves?

Minnesota state Rep. Tony Cornish says the al-Shabaab threat against the Mall of America should be enough to motivate mall owners to drop their “no guns” policy so citizens can protect themselves.
Mr. Cornish, a Republican who also chairs the House Public Safety Committee, said the Mall of America has interpreted state concealed carry laws incorrectly, and he’s intent on challenging them for it, a local CBS affiliate reported.
“This is completely ridiculous. The complete opposite of what they should be doing,” he said. “If we’re threatened with an attack, the last thing you want to do is disarm citizens.”
 

In a sharply-worded new critique, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says that President Obama’s handling of the Islamic State terrorist group has shown the country he is “incapable of bring commander-in-chief of the United States of America.”
“Mr. President, the American people are not as dimwitted as you seem to believe we are,” Mr. Jindal wrote in an opinion piece for Fox News. “We know that most Muslims have no interest in terrorism. It’s an obvious point, but for President Obama and the politically correct crowd, we do need to say it.”
***I want to start emphasizing the genius of our Founders, and little known facts about them. Most of this stuff isn't even taught in public schools today. 

John Adams He was the 2nd President of the United States and helped draft the Declaration of Independence. A highly educated man whose ideas strongly shaped the governmental structure of our republic. He was a direct descendent of the founding generation of Puritans who established colonial presence in America. Religion played a dominant role in his life, and his views were complicated and contrasting.  One of the biggest lessons Adams’ life teaches is the importance of choosing the right mate.  His wife Abigail was a great encourager to him.  Even though his work required them to be apart for years at a time, she stood by him and continued to be his rock.

Patrick Henry
His immortal words still ring out today. “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” Yet Patrick Henry’s path to that moment was paved with two failed business ventures, several career changes and the horrible, tragic death of his beloved wife, Sarah.  Patrick Henry’s life teaches us that success often comes after failure.  The moral to the story: never give up.

Dreams

By Langston Hughes

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.


***Taxpayer funded University of Wisconsin chancellor spends her days lobbying her alumni against Scott Walker. Never mind that his policies WORK and Wisconsin is 100% better off than before he took office. With liberals, it's never about the actual accomplishments of a person or policy. It's about how they feel.

***Oscar ratings hit seven year low. Good. I can't stand awards shows. So many phonies and frankly ignorant people trying to pass themselves off as intelligent.

***People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing.  That’s why we recommend it daily. –Zig Ziglar

***Have a great day!
