Reader Jason K. wrote to warn of a new Federal appointments steam roller: Senate Ends Nomination Procedural Fillibuters. Jason’s comment: “After this unprecedented and tyrannical move today, we must have to ask ourselves: “When is enough, enough?” When do we realize that the time is coming, very quickly, where a man must decide which side of the line he stands on, whether on the side of tyranny, debasement, slavery and evil, or whether he stands on the side of Freedom?
