Those who claim to be friends of liberty, like the proponents of Obama’s contraception rule, will often be constraining liberty by the very policies they pursue. If we believe in and value liberty, there can be no ranking of liberties, or picking and choosing among them. Accepting the violation of one particular liberty threatens them all.
I am an Air Force Veteran of the Cold War and the First Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm). I live on a wooded hilltop with my two rescued dogs, Yogi and Ranger, and two rescued cats, White Sox, and Mittens. We share my land with several deer, a family of red-tailed hawks, a barn owl, numerous squirrels (that my dogs and the cat tree together), a family of pileated woodpeckers and numerous cottontail rabbits, and an occasional opossum or raccoon.
