Happy December everyone,
Parker County Republican Women will be having their December luncheon meeting Thursday the 12th at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center. Lunch will begin to be served at 11:30 a.m. with the meeting starting at noon. The price of lunch is $15. You can make a reservation by calling Sonja Davis at 817-443-3870, or by email at email@example.com.
Our speaker for December is Attorney General candidate Barry Smitherman. Mr. Smitherman is the current Texas Railroad Commissioner and often speaks about Texas’ ability to become an “Independent Nation”. Should be very interesting.
I hope to see you there.

From Imprimis, by Peter J. Wallison (American Enterprise Institute) -
The following is adapted from a speech delivered at Hillsdale College on November 5, 2013, during a conference entitled “Dodd-Frank: A Law Like No Other,” co-sponsored by the Center for Constructive Alternatives and the Ludwig Von Mises Lecture Series.
The 2008 financial crisis was a major event, equivalent in its initial scope—if not its duration—to the Great Depression of the 1930s. At the time, many commentators said that we were witnessing a crisis of capitalism, proof that the free market system was inherently unstable. Government officials who participated in efforts to mitigate its effects claim that their actions prevented a complete meltdown of the world’s financial system, an idea that has found acceptance among academic and other observers, particularly the media. These views culminated in the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act that is founded on the notion that the financial system is inherently unstable and must be controlled by government regulation.

The deal incorporates increased Russian involvement in Egypt, Syria and the Persian Gulf, and even involves a Saudi guarantee to aid against terror plots targeting the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
From RedState, By Erick Erickson,12/06/13- The President is either high or ignorant, though perhaps we should embrace the healing power of “and.” He posits that if the nation raises the minimum wage, there will be an economic boom.
Only in leftwing fantasy land and Das Kapital does such a concept even come close to being credible. What’s worse, via his twitter account his minion tweeted out an info graphic making the case. One can only assume this is why he does not want poor children in Louisiana to get a better education. If they did, they’d quickly realize the President is full of . . . choom maybe?
Has choice words for president’s nuke deal with Iran
From WND, by Garth Kant, 11/26/13 -
WASHINGTON — It was a warning on the perils of appeasement reminiscent of Churchill.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., cut straight to the heart of the matter when WND asked her what the nuclear deal with Iran will mean.
Washington Examiner, By MICHAEL BARONE | NOVEMBER 22, 2013 - Economist Bryan Caplan notes that support for gun control — specifically, banning handguns or pistols — has decreased dramatically since the 1950s and 1960s. Back in 1959 Gallup reported that 60% of Americans favored banning possession of “pistols and revolvers,” while now 74% oppose banning “the possession of handguns,” except by police.
Caplan seems puzzled by this substantial change in opinion. I think it’s explainable by two developments.
From Williamsburg to Silver Lake, he’s yesterday’s arugula.
From NRO.com, By Rich Lowry, 11/19/13 – Barack Obama is the coolest president we’ve had since John F. Kennedy, at least according to conventional standards for such things. Obama has always been a brand as much as a politician, one that has been perceived as sleek, smart, and up to date.
