Happy Thanksgiving

I am thankful for Christ who died for me. I am thankful for my wife, my children, Eagle Publishing, and many more things.But I want to take just a moment to share with you that I am also thankful for you. This morning email is a daily labor of love. Many of you have become good email friends. It remains a pleasure to get the Morning Briefing to you each week day.Five days a week I get up early, get this out the door, and go back to bed. Occasionally I take day or two off and enjoy sleeping in. Tomorrow, instead of sending this out, I’ll be up before dawn getting a turkey in the smoker. Friday, wonderful Friday, I will be sleeping in.Have a wonderful, safe, and delicious Thanksgiving. Enjoy the leftovers on Friday, And God bless each and every one of you. See you Monday morning.

1. Corruption

I know some of you are a bit perplexed about why I, a guy in Georgia, keep writing about Joe Straus, a liberal elitist in Texas.It is very simple really. Texas is going to make big gains in the census and pick up some congressional districts. Conservatives across the country must be concerned that the man who will have the heaviest hand in drawing those lines is 100% NARAL supported and ridiculously corrupt.We must fight at the state level here to help the conservative cause nationally in the 2012 elections.And what happened late yesterday should concern everyone — really concern everyone, not to mention embarrass all the Texans.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. Gov Jindal: ‘Make Congressmen Part-time’

It seems like an insurmountable task for GOP candidates to take out the liberal fixtures of Nancy Pelosi, Charlie Rangel, and Barney Frank in congressional elections, but how about making them part-time workers instead? Perhaps that’s one way to minimize the amount of unpopular legislation coming out of Washington these days. Bobby Jindal thinks so. According to him, it’s about time we slice and dice the number of hours lawmakers have in a work day.“We used to pay farmers not to grow crops, let’s make congressman stay out of Washington, D.C.,” the Louisiana Governor said in an exclusive interview with HUMAN EVENTS. “Our liberty, our wallets are safest when the legislature’s not in session,” he added, borrowing the line from Mark Twain.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. Thoughts on the TSA — Opt Out Today

As many of us go through the grand experience of the TSA prostate exams — no doubt a part of healthcare cost savings under Obamacare — we need to consider a few things.When terrorists started trying to bring liquid explosives on planes, we went to 3 oz. bottles.When terrorists started wearing bombs as underwear, we went to full body screening.What happens when terrorists start using their body cavities? God help us.In each of these instances, the threats occurred overseas. No one overseas is going through the motions that we are going through here. No one.Why us?And if this is designed to stop terrorists from blowing up airplanes, why stop there? Why not trains? Why not buses?Please click here for the rest of the post.
