Nothing better demonstrates the need for an NFRA and a robust Republican Assembly movement in every state than the “fiscal cliff” deal just passed.
Note well: nearly all the House Republicans voted against the deal, as did key Senators like Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, etc. The tax-and-spend nightmare is brought to you by the Dems: Obama, Reid, and nearly every single House Democrat. Boehner will get his come-uppance shortly.
Against all the chorus shouted from the media and congressional bleachers — that he had failed by walking out on a bad deal with Gorbachev or recklessly fired striking air traffic controllers who were striking against federal law — Ronald Reagan never blinked. And the fact that he didn’t blink made America — and the world — an infinitely better place.

“I’ve told my administration to keep looking every single day for actions we can take without Congress, steps that make government more efficient and responsive, and help heal the economy. And we’re going to be announcing these executive actions on a regular basis.”
The Chief Justice dodged the bullet. I think you can call him crafty, as Chief Justice John Marshall was crafty all those years ago when he wrote the decision for Marbury v. Madison.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any person who is the head of a family, or who has arrived at the age of twenty-one years, and is a citizen of the United States, shall be entitled to enter one quarter section or a less quantity of unappropriated public lands
