“I think he’s proven untrustworthy on this issue [immigration reform]. He tried to go around Congress with an Executive Order to rewrite laws unilaterally,” Ryan said. “Presidents don’t write laws. Congress writes laws.”
“So yes, Ryan continued. “I do not believe we should and we won’t bring immigration legislation with a president we cannot trust on this issue. If we believe and have consensus on things like border enforcement, and interior security, then that’s fine.”
So, um, Paul: legislate something. Put it before the president. He signs it or he doesn’t. That’s the process.
Unless of course, you want him to use Executive Orders on immigration which you can then use to fundraise as you posture with the rubes.
Congressman Paul Ryan and his fellow selfish SOBs will all be pleased to learn that a previously lost and unpublished Ayn Rand novel has been discovered and will soon be available:
For the first time in more than 50 years, publishers are rolling out a new novel by the godmother of libertarianism, the previously unpublished Ideal. The book tells the story of a movie actress who is accused of murder.
Rand wrote the novel in her late 20s, but never published it, although at one point, she did write a stage adaptation, which will be included in the new edition along with the short novel.
The “objectivist” author’s works — particularly the novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged — have been held up by pro-business, anti-government zealots as exemplars of political fiction. Her acolytes praise her as one of the greatest minds of the 20th century and have made her, essentially, the patron saint of people who don’t tip.

That’s Rick Wiles telling us the Zombie Apocalypse is upon us, you know, as a government conspiracy, and that’s why you should convert or something.
OK, so it’s not a dog, but it is funny. I think that this is going to be a show on the electronic teevee machine?

Perhaps Scissorhead Zombie Rotten McDonald will give us an expert opinion?
I guess that’s professional courtesy.
…it’s better than most of the programming on CNN:

On the bright side, the video to go along with the dog poop in the mail box story will be better than Brisket®‘s teevee show!
It must be something in the water:
CHEYENNE — State representatives on Friday advanced legislation to launch a study into what Wyoming should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States.
House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.
The task force would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.
Yes, gotta defend the Wyoming coast from invasion. Someone might try to cross the Snake River or something.
