Rather than judge the man in front of me at church with his casual shirt, piercings, and tattoos, I'm just grateful that he came at all—with his family.

“Joseph Smith, the Prophet and Seer of the Lord, has done more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man that ever lived in it. In the short space of twenty years, he has brought forth the Book of Mormon, which he translated by the gift and power of God, and has been the means of publishing it on two continents; has sent the fulness of the everlasting gospel, which it contained, to the four quarters of the earth; has brought forth the revelations and commandments which compose this book of Doctrine and Covenants, and many other wise documents and instructions for the benefit of the children of men; gathered many thousands of the Latter-day Saints, founded a great city, and left a fame and name that cannot be slain. He lived great, and he died great in the eyes of God and his people; and like most of the Lord’s anointed in ancient times, has sealed his mission and his works with his own blood; and so has his brother Hyrum. In life they were not divided, and in death they were not separated!” — D&C 135:3 #Mormon #LDS
Announcement of the martyrdom of Joseph Smith the Prophet and his brother, Hyrum Smith the Patriarch, at Carthage, Illinois, June 27, 1844. This document was included at the end of the 1844 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants, which was nearly ready for publication when Joseph and Hyrum Smith were murdered.

Millions of Syrian refugees have been impacted by the Syrian civil war that broke out in 2011. Watch and listen to Nadia’s story; A 12 year old Syrian refugee child who, while fleeing Syria, was shot in the back and paralyzed.

Through the selflessness of others our hope can be restored. Something as simple as the donation of a wheelchair and clothing can be life changing for someone like Nadia and her family. #Mormon #LDS +Mormon Channel

So much of what Johnson and Weld say in this interview makes so much sense that I don't even care about Weld's support for Merrick Garland and Stephen Breyer, both of whom appear to be pretty centrist, moderate judges who are not driven by ideological partisan agendas. I'm tired of extremism. I'm tired of having to listen to and work with people on the fringes. I'm ready for someone who is just promoting common sense, even if I don't necessarily agree with them on everything. Johnson is about as close as it comes to that this year. Please watch and share.

I'm not going to share any of the articles on USA Today that are preening over the nomination of Hillary Clinton and its supposed historical significance. They make me sick to my stomach, which is a pretty awful way to start my morning. No one in the Democratic Party or the media (but I repeat myself, for the most part), seems to care about any aspect of Hillary Clinton besides her gender. I wonder, since nowadays gender is so "fluid", if they would be reacting the same way if Caitlyn Jenner was the Republican nominee instead of Donald Trump. We don't even have a concrete idea of what a woman is anymore, much less any reason to think that the nomination of a woman for president is in any way groundbreaking or monumental.

The simple fact of the matter is that there is no "glass ceiling" to be shattered anymore. There hasn't been in over 20 years. The only reason that America hasn't had a woman president yet is because no woman fit for the office has yet decided to run for president and made it all the way through the primary process. No one in America really has any problem with a woman being president anymore, inherently. We just don't want that woman to be president, because of numerous reasons that have nothing to do with sex. I can think of any number of women who would make far, far better presidents than Hillary Clinton. But few of them have actually decided to seek the office, and none of them have had the money and power to connive and cajole their way to either party's nomination until now.

Hillary is undoubtedly going to ride that woman train all the way to the White House, because Democrats don't care about anything besides filling another affirmative action quota, and Republicans decided to completely sabotage themselves by nominating an ignorant, repulsive buffoon whose qualifications are even worse than Hillary's. But she hasn't earned it, and her election will represent no great accomplishment for women. Aside from radical feminists who will likely get their "equal pay for equal work" without equal qualifications, and the right to kill their babies whenever they want, women will be harmed under Hillary Clinton as much as they would be under Donald Trump. Liberty benefits everyone, regardless of race or gender. And socialism and crony capitalism never do anything but hold people back and bring people down.

I feel like such an outsider in the liberty movement so much of the time. I see great minds whom I admire tremendously interacting with each other, posting on blogs, doing TV interviews, hosting their own YouTube channels and live streams, writing books, and speaking at conventions, and here I am just…laying in my hotel room posting on social media, resharing the work of others, while putting off getting ready to go to my easy and good benefit providing, but low-paying and rather dead-end, job.

I've got to be doing more with my life, somehow. I know I am intelligent and talented enough to be like any of the rest of them. I just don't know where to get started, and I feel like I am just lost at sea, a spectator in a sport in which I should really be out on the field, playing. It's very frustrating and depressing. 😟

Honestly, I'm extremely frustrated with where I work too. There is no upward mobility, blatant favoritism, and constant micromanaging make the job incredibly frustrating. I'm hoping one day I will get a position that requires more than a highschool diploma.

“The possibilities for us to lend a hand and be a friend [to refugees] are endless. You might help resettled refugees learn their host country language, update their work skills, or practice job interviewing. You could offer to mentor a family or a single mother as they transition to an unfamiliar culture, even with something as simple as accompanying them to the grocery store or the school. Some wards and stakes have existing trusted organizations to partner with. And, according to your circumstances, you can give to the Church’s extraordinary humanitarian effort.” —Patrick Kearon #Mormon #LDS

Here's something funny that just occurred to me about anti-discrimination laws:

The 14th Amendment is often used by the courts to justify these laws, and to strike down discrimination in general, whether it be on the basis of race, sex, religion (less frequently), or, in our brave new world, sexual orientation/gender identity. The problem is that with the way that these laws are enforced, they in and of themselves create a constitutional dilemma. Anti-discrimination laws create "protected classes" of people, against whom discrimination is prohibited; these classes include the categories that I listed above, which are most frequently the basis for discrimination in our society. But the 14th Amendment explicitly states that every citizen must be given "equal protection" under the law. So really, to create certain classes of people that are protected against discrimination, while other classes of people are not, is in and of itself a violation of the 14th Amendment, rendering all anti-discrimination laws unconstitutional.

I and other libertarians make fun of Gary Johnson for saying in a debate that Jews should be forced to bake wedding cakes for Nazis, but if you think about it, he unintentionally has a point. In order to be intellectually and legally consistent, ALL forms of discrimination, even against groups that are universally hated, like Nazis, ought to be illegal, if we assume that discrimination is really something that people need to be "protected" against in the first place. It is completely arbitrary to make race, religion, nationality, and sexual orientation protected characteristics against which discrimination is a crime, but to leave things like political affiliation, class, profession of employment, or even secondary physical characteristics like eye color, hair color, and weight, open to discrimination. It's perfectly legal in America to discriminate against someone for being a Republican, or being poor, or being fat, or being a plumber, or having red hair and green eyes. I would argue that discrimination against a person for these reasons is about as hurtful or harmful as discriminating against them for being black, a woman, a Muslim, or gay. So really, Johnson's stance is the only one that is consistent with the law: if we are to provide equal protection to everyone against discrimination, then any form of discrimination, for any reason, ought to be illegal—meaning that basically everyone would be forced to serve everyone else regardless of their personal beliefs, convictions or desires, essentially rendering freedom of association and private property rights null and void.

I don't think it will be much longer before we find ourselves traveling down this particular rabbit hole, at which time perhaps, hopefully, society will decide that policing the thoughts and prejudices of human beings by trying to legislate discrimination out of existence is not the best idea. The free market will take care of bad actors if we let it: people will voluntarily boycott or protest a business if it refuses service to someone for a reason that they deem unacceptable, without the government needing to get involved (just look at what happened to Memories Pizza, which didn't even actually discriminate against anyone, but whose owner merely suggested that he might be unwilling to serve a particular group of people in an entirely hypothetical and unlikely scenario). And that business will eventually fold after facing competition from other businesses that are more tolerant and open in regards to their clientele. Freedom does work, if we would just give it a chance.

I actually did communicate with Jerry Doyle one time, on Twitter, when he replied to something that I had retweeted from his Epic Times website. I told him that I had been a huge fan of his for the past 20 years, and he replied back, "Thank you; I hope you'll be a fan for the NEXT 20 years as well!"

I will, Jerry. I'll be a fan forever, and hopefully one day my son will be too. Rest in Peace.

A vote for Gary Johnson is not a vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor is a vote for Gary Johnson a vote for Donald Trump.

A vote for Gary Johnson is a vote against both of them, as well as a vote against cronyism, corruption, class warfare, xenophobia, racism, and religious bigotry.

No, Johnson isn't perfect. Yes, he supports abortion and forcing Jews to bake Nazi wedding cakes, and tons of other nonsense. But the other two candidates are not any better in this regard, and in many other areas they are much worse. And Johnson is the only third-party candidate with a chance of actually getting votes in the electoral college, locking up the election, and getting chosen by the House of Representatives.

There are no perfect choices in this election. Arguably, there aren't even any good ones. But Johnson is the only qualified and honest candidate in this election, and therefore we are morally obligated to support him. No one will get everything they want in a Johnson presidency, but no one ever does anyway. Johnson will give us all more than we could possibly hope for with the other two, and he will allow us to come out of this election with a mostly clean conscience, with a minimal amount of blood on our hands.

When given the choice between two evils, choose neither. The only vote that is "wasted" is the one you choose not to cast at all. Clinton and Trump would both do significant damage to this country (Trump's would be almost irreparable). So don't whore yourself out by voting for either of them. Enough with the two-party system. As Ted Cruz said, vote your conscience. Vote for liberty. Vote for American values.

Vote for Johnson.

Police called this company to tow my car after my wife got into an accident. After I went there to inspect the vehicle and get my things out of it I mentioned that I would need to take it a place to get the work done and they told me that they did body work there too. To avoid having to drive the car all over town I decided to go ahead and let them do it. Long story short, they did an AWESOME job. They did not settle for substandard parts and replaced the entire front facia of my car, matching it with the color (red) PERFECTLY. They also replaced my tire with a brand new one, refusing the insurance company's attempt to replace it with a used one, and they fixed my alignment for me too! When I picked up the car the interior was completely clean and the car basically looked brand new. I was amazed; MUCH better service than I was expecting from a small and independently-owned place like this. It did take almost two weeks for the work to be completed but I'm not even mad about that, since that was mostly the insurance company's fault (they tried at first to cheat them on the cost of the estimate for repairs, but it all got worked out in the end) and I had a rental the whole time anyway. Bottom line is that this is a great small business that I would strongly recommend, certainly if they happen to be the ones who tow your vehicle after an accident anyway. Alex and Reuben were both very courteous, congenial, honest and hard-working men and they deserve credit for the excellent work they did. Some people have given them bad reviews because they can't own up to the mistakes they made that resulted in their cars getting towed in the first place but you know what...too bad. You can't please everyone. But they have certainly pleased me and I would come back here again in a heartbeat.

So this hotel is beautiful, and the rooms are spacious, but it also has GIANT FLYING ROACHES (note the PLURAL) and the wifi is, as the British say, dodgy. I guess you can’t expect too much from an independent hotel…especially one that’s probably been around for close to a hundred years if not more. Hey, at least they have a plasma TV.
