"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat

Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

USDA gets with the Trend

Many of you have been reading about the increasing number of government agencies developing their own SWAT teams. USDA seems to be getting with the new fad.

 I have it on good authority that corn earworms and soybean leaf beetles have been coordinating strategy for assaulting USDA inspectors in the field. Never fear, the USDA is fighting back. Why else would they need body armor?

Can you believe this stuff? Unreal...


Then again, it could be those hogs at the packing plants that meat inspectors are checking. The porcine victims are apparently not going to go down without a fight. Those hardy inspectors need to be able to level the playing field.
