Nick Gillespie on Jake Tapper

While reading Reason’s take on last night’s town hall shown on CNN I saw this gem:

…it’s good to see a thoughtful, well-informed news anchor and interlocutor who consistently asks difficult questions of all his guests and also gives them the time to answer.

I’m in complete agreement with Mr. Gillespie. I’ve been a fan of Tapper since his days as White House correspondent at ABC.

Prophet Isaiah’s seal found?

This is potentially a big discovery.

The oval-shaped bulla, however, is not intact. On its legible portion, there is an inscription with First Temple Hebrew letters that seem to spell out the name l’Yesha’yah[u] (Belonging to Isaiah). On a line below, there is the partial word nvy, which presumably spells out “prophet.”

The usual disclaimers about initial findings applies. The findings may change based on additional research.

You’re ruining Facebook (and friendships) with political rants (from NY Post)

This is an excellent point and a reason I try to avoid politics when I post to social media. This is also the result of binary political thinking. Something we have seen a lot of this election cycle.

Has The President Has Usurped The Constitutional Power Of Congress?

Has The President Has Usurped The Constitutional Power Of Congress?

This is an excellent question and it will be debated on June 8th. The Intelligence Squared debate series is excellent. All debaters are allowed to speak and no one gets shut down. They actually debate ideas and not throw ad homonym attacks at each other. Imagine the concept!

As for the topic I think not only has this president usurped the power of congress but the past president has as well.
