First thought, after watching this video, is you got to be kidding me.  At what point do we say stop?  Are you telling me there are no better alternatives to secure the airways?  There are no private security firms that could work for each of the airlines that could use statistically based profiling, use of technology far less intrusive than the full body scans, etc?  I do understand the rationale behind trying to protect our country and its citizens, but where do we draw the line and shout at the top of our lungs “ENOUGH is ENOUGH!”

As The Longwood Institute gears back up after a bit of a sabbatical, please view this straightforward assessment of the Feds plans to \”rebound the economy\” Funny how things tend to clarify themselves when you take out the political clamor and doublespeak jargon.  Have we crossed a tipping point economically? 

Timely quote from Mother Theresa on the calendar today.  “I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle.  I just wish he did not trust me so much”  Have a great day and trust that you have the tools to defend Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

This speech from Rep. Mike Pence, can be expanded to include all elected officials.  Is there such a thing as a humble leader?  Will the expected turnover in the legislative bodies actually produce more respect and adherence to our natural God-given Rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness?  While I certainly hope this the case, I hope the change sweeping across the country is a change of heart.  A spiritual and political revival that has been needed for sometime.  I guess only time will tell.

Thought this is an inspiring post from First Things.  If we cannot protect life, innocent life especially, liberty and a pursuit of happiness are meaningless.  Life, the most basic right.

Every wondered what makes our elected officials tick?  Why they would want to pursue political positions that open them up to public scrutiny for relatively low wages compared what they do outside of their main revenue source?  This article from the Mises Institute tackles that question.  Agree or disagree?  How does addressing the psychological makeup of these people help us better protect life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

The Re-Unification of Germany 20 Years later – This piece from the Acton Institute takes a a look back at the reuinification of East and West Germany.  The author is quick to point out that history did not end with the defeat of communism in Eastern Europe.  All of us are left with a choice between good and evil.  We as people make up the socities we live in that make choices between good and evil societal structures and governance.  Will we choose life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and embrace the personal responsibility that is welded to those inalienable rights?  Or, will we succumb to the false security that the despotism of socialism and communism offers?

Will these elections matter?  Most people have probably read about the probable change in majority in the House of Representatives after these mid-term elections.  This is not uncommon.  However, it does seem that rather than just a Party change the American people want a philisophical change in governance.  Obviously, the struggle for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness will be forever ongoing, rising and falling with the tides of public opinion.  The problem stems, as this article points out, if the elctions are fraudulent and the will of the people is not heard.

On a completely seperate note, Brad Crockett, recommended the supremecourt.gov website for all of the recently decided US Supreme Court cases.  While some are very long this recently decided Supreme Court Case actually overturned a GA State Supreme Court ruling, is pretty brief, and has an interesting footnote (#9).  Thanks Brad.
