This is exactly the kind of thing Templeton is ceaselessly angling for – recognition among real scientists – and they use their money shamelessly to satisfy their doomed craving for scientific respectability. They tried it on with the Royal Society of London, and they seem to have found a compliant Quisling in the current President, Martin Rees, who, though not religious himself, is a fervent 'believer in belief'.martin rees
The President, and government, will only control the militia when a part of them is in the actual service of the federal government, else, they are independent and not under the command of the President or the government.

On the face of this wide earth, Mr. President, there is not one... intelligent champion of the Union cause who does not feel... that the rebellion, if crushed tomorrow, would be renewed if slavery were left in full vigor... and that every hour of deference to slavery is an hour of added and deepened peril to the Union.Horace Greeley
"[President George W. Bush] has a vision which can be described with two other words: Manichaean paranoia... the notion that he is leading the forces of good against the empire of evil, that in that setting, the fact that we are morally superior justifies us committing immoral acts.

The fact is he squandered our credibility, our legitimacy, and even respect for our power."zbigniew brzezinski

So, if there is a movement, which this [anonymous New York Times contributor] claims there is and I haven't seen it, that is what the deep state is.

As one of our colleagues recently put it, this Republican pledge of no new taxes is pure Bushlips. It's Bushlips when the President says 'No new taxes' and sends a budget requiring the Finance Committee to raise $20 billion in new revenues: $15 billion in taxes and $5 billion in user fees.lloyd bentsen
If I am elected President, I will never apologize for the United States. I will strengthen her and make her a beacon of freedom and liberty!

So, I mean to say, as for those who are proving their allegiance with what I would call sickening perseverance, and who are urging the President to brush away the constitution, those I would like to remind of a Russian proverb: “Don’t spit into the well, it’ll come in handy once you’re thirsty.vladimir posner
I do have issues I have lots of issues but I take particular issue with politicians who compare loving, stable same-sex relationships to ‘man on dog’ sex, as Santorum has done, or who would ban same-sex marriage and adoptions by same-sex couples, as Santorum has promised to do if he gets elected President.
