Short Notes
Trump to Meet North Korea leader 
Do you think maybe Little Rocket Man is waking up? Maybe  his sister reported after the Olympics what the typical S.Korea resident has - like groceries, fuel, clothes, communications, vehiles, jobs, smiles?Maybe they are waking up. Let's HOPE!

We predict
President Trump will make a deal - lay down your arms, make nice, and we will teach you the advantages of free enterprise and bring you out of the dark ages! 

Off FB: 
David A. Dudenhoefer - S. Korean President gives credit to Trump's hardline approach and leadership leading to diplomacy with N. Korea. I would imagine like you I am optimistic and sceptical of N. Korea's leadership suddenly wanting to meet and "commit to ending nuke testing and to begin disarming", but I am all in favor of more communication and less
bloodshed.

Signed by Gov. Rick Snyder 3/8/18  Roll Call

HRJ V -  If Michigan legislators are so worried about Federal spending and deficits they can quit taking 1/3rd of their budget from the Feds - with all those strings attached. Taking the money and blaming Congress is at best, disingenuous. 
  We The People can rein in Congress. It is up to us. Amendments will be no more respected than the Constitution is.
 You cannot control a convention once it is opened.

Healthcare Transparency!
Should medical providers be required to publish prices? Like this one does?

++ Health Care Transparency!  Foster Friess proposes PatientsUSA   a one-line bill that requires healthcare providers to publish self-pay prices. - A   clinic on one side of the street might change $5,000 for a procedure with 60% success. Another clininc across the street might charge $2800 for the same procedure qith 95% succes. We will neven know, because health care providers typically do not post prices or success rates.   
 The one-line bill reads: "All providers of healthcare products and services to the public are required by July 1, 2018, to publish on the internet and at the point of sale cash/self-pay prices, notwithstanding any existing federal regulations." 
   Foster hopes this one-line piece of legislation, which Americans of all political backgrounds support, will increase civility with Democrats and Republicans working together to pass the bill. MORE

++ COS a ConCon - "If a General Convention were to take place for the avowed and sole purpose of revising the Constitution, it would naturally consider itself as having a greater latitude than the Congress...It would consequently give greater agitation to the public mind; an election into it would be courted by the most violent partisans on both sides... (and) would no doubt contain individuals of insidious views.."  J. Madison wrote G.L. Turberville  November 2, 1788:

++ School To Mass Murder Pipeline - guest editorial by Ann Coulter: Nikolas Cruz's psychosis ended in a bloody massacre not only because of the stunning incompetence of the Broward County Sheriff's Department. It was also the result of liberal insanity working exactly as it was intended to. 
   School and law enforcement officials knew Cruz was a ticking  time bomb. They did nothing because of a deliberate, willful, bragged-about policy to end the "school-to-prison pipeline." This is the feature part of the story, not the bug part. 
   If Cruz had taken out full-page ads in the local newspapers, he could not have demonstrated more clearly that he was a dangerous psychotic. He assaulted students, cursed out  teachers, kicked in classroom doors, started fist fights, threw chairs, threatened to kill other students, mutilated small animals, pulled a rifle on his mother, drank gasoline and cut  himself, among other "red flags."
   Over and over again, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School reported Cruz's terrifying behavior to school administrators, including  Kelvin Greenleaf, "security specialist," and Peter Mahmood, head of JROTC. 
   At least three students sh owed school administrators Cruz's near-constant messages threatening to kill them -- e.g., "I am going to enjoy seeing you down on the grass," "Im  going to watch you bleed," "I am going to shoot you dead" - including one that came with a photo of Cruz's guns. They warned school authorities that h e was bringing weapons to  school. They filed written reports. 
   Threatening to kill someone is a felony. In addition to locking Cruz away for a while, having a felony record would have prevented him from purchasing a gun.  All the school had to  do was risk Cruz not going to college, and depriving Yale University of a Latino class member, by reporting a few of his felonies -- and there would have been no mass shooting...  (liberal think) it's the arrest -- not the behavior that led to the arrest -- that reduces a student's chance at a successful life... In the pursuit of a demented ideology, specific people  agreed not to report, arrest or prosecute dangerous students like Nikolas Cruz. (Thanks John)

Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the same day, but their lives had OPPOSITE effect!     American Minute with Bill Federer
   Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the exact same day, FEBRUARY 12, 1809, but their lives had opposite effects.   Lincoln is best known for issuing the Emancipation Proclamation and freeing millions of slaves, claiming all men are created equal, as he stated in his Gettysburg Address,
November 19,1863:
   Darwin's theory of evolution claims men were not created, instead they evolved, and men are not equal, as some are more evolved than others.
   Darwin influenced Karl Marx, Engels, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, and others whose totalitarian regimes killed and enslaved millions.

Secretary Chase asked Lincoln  to explain what prompted his position on Emancipation Proclamation, Lincoln replied: "I made a solemn vow before God, that if General Lee were driven back from Pennsylvania, I would crown the result by the declaration of freedom to the slaves."
   Conversely, Darwin's theory influenced Margaret Sanger, who promoted "eugenics" and "forced sterilization" to eliminate inferior races. Sanger founded a 501(c)3 called Planned Parenthood.

The Preponderance La douchette Guest editorial by James H. Hafeman 
   The mantras from the left and never-trumpets espousing that Donald J. Trump was not qualified to be the President has been so-far proven quite wrong. President Donald J. Trump gave his first State of the Union Address last night. He successfully demonstrated exactly what it is to be a President in a constitutional republic.
   The Cuban-Venezuelan Socialists wore black to the SOTU. Quite appropriate for mourning the death of the Neo-Democratic Party. Rendering boos at the President for suggesting our immigration policies should have a better vetting process was a strong indicator just how anti-US these Cuban-Venezuelan-socialists have become over the last three-decades.
   That's probably why, despite being showered with Hollywood and other pervert dollars, the DNC isn't getting much citizen-based financial support these days.
   While the left continues to hate you, me and our constitutional republic, but loves criminals; they continue to loathe the police, military, God, and any other authority and power that isn't of their own. And, not to diminish the outstanding acting talents of the late Bewitched actress Marion Lorne MacDougal, America's Aunt Clara replacement remained clueless throughout the SOTU speech. Americans are winning and that is viewed as a major threat to the Pelosi's, Schumer's and Bernie Sander's Neo-Socialists Party of America. More
