Mary Ruth writes on facebook: We were blessed with an evening out with our kids Monday night to see this movie. Critics clearly don’t get it. One critic wrote that the Kendrick brothers “have further limited that audience by presenting an emphatically anti-feminist picture of faith, repeatedly underscoring the idea that a woman must be submissive to her husband.” During the movie it came clear to me that submission is not to the husband, but both spouses need to be in submission to our loving Creator since we are all to be the “bride of Christ.” The Kendrick brothers have yet to disappoint; War Room is another winner. Thanks to our thoughtful kids for helping us celebrate 30 years with such an uplifting evening!
Happy Anniversary to the Tapps!

A major annual poll shows that a majority of Americans support following the 10th Amendment on education, preferring to have states in charge rather than the federal government. PDK/Gallup reports the interesting findings, as local/state control of education increasingly gains support as federal policies fail to deliver results that were promised: More Americans say state…
Two prominent GOP Presidential candidates have unveiled their health care reform plans, and they are more of the same. They even re-affirm key parts of Obamacare and keep federal control over health care intact. Michael F. Cannon, Director of Health Policy Studies at the CATO Institute, recently wrote an op/ed the New Hampshire Union Leader about the…
It’s reported that President Obama will change the name of Alaska’s highest peak from Mount McKinley to Denali. But wait, does the President have constitutional power to rename mountains? Almost certainly not. (And, even worse for him, the name McKinley appears to be incorporated into a statute. And, even worse than that, apparently there have…
Sam Andrews; the high-profile leader of the St. Louis area Oath Keepers group, has split with the national organization. He argues that his group wants Ferguson law-abiding citizens to keep the same respect and rights as the friends of the Bundy ranch & the citizens of Ruby Ridge, Idaho.
The visuals of the Ferguson protests have created a PR problem for the national leadership. Veterans and law enforcement have been very troubled by the notion that an angry black protester might be constitutionally holding a gun.

Tulsa R3’s – Ron Paul Revolution This month at Liberty on Tap, we will be joined by Steve Long, Chair of the Oklahoma Libertarian Party, and Tina Kelly, Vice Chair. They will be giving us the lowdown on the status of the Libertarian Party in Oklahoma, ballot access reform legislation, and what they’ve been up to in general over the past year or so.
I bet you have a lot of questions for them! Plus this is a great chance to meet other Libertarians, Anarchists, and liberty minded Republicans and Democrats. Oh, and of course people who don’t use labels are always welcome into the mix

I remember that day in 2009 as one of those busy days in which I struggled to keep up with work. I was almost certainly tempted to direct my legislative assistant to refuse all visitors so that I could get my work done; however, I didn’t feel right about doing that and instead said, “If anyone comes in, please let them know that I can only meet for five minutes.”
My next visitor took far longer than five minutes. And I am glad he did.
