We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Because of its near-limitless reach, if fully implemented, ObamaCare will quickly become a political force surpassing even Social Security and Medicare. Once that happens, the only way to win elections will be to promise not to touch government health care. Every politician will have to accept and even endorse issues that are now championed only by the far left.
In so many places citizens are hardly citizens but subjects -- wards of the government, dependent on the state for their housing, their health care, their monthly salaries, their education, even their weekly food baskets. When troubles come, their first thought is not “How can I help myself and my community” but “Hurry up, government, and help me.” In this regard the contrast, say, between the decidedly independent citizens of the American Heartland on one hand and supinely dependent New Orleans could not be greater.
Students in the ever-expanding roster of official campus victim groups flatter themselves that by attending what is in fact the most caring, protective, and opportunity-rich institution in the history of the world, they are braving unspeakable threats to their ego and even to their physical safety. (Indeed, so desirable is this alleged threatened status that a gender and women’s studies major held a sign during Tuesday’s protest of the bake sale decrying the exclusion of “queer people” from the Republicans’ pricing structure.)
The seriously dedicated free market purist Karl Denninger @ Market Ticker is on about the Wall Street protesters too. Only his take is that the Commies are the folks the protesters are protesting. Which makes the protesters the actual pro-American side of the tumult.
I tells ya, it's hard sometimes to figure which is what in this weird new world where the leader of the citadel nation of the free market is as red as a matador's cape.
While brachiating among these branches of BD's blurbs, allow me to offer that Garofalo's attack on Tea leaves but one surmise. To wit: By merely asking oneself what she would say different about the Tea if the Tea hated (rather than loved) Cain, the obvious answer to the question ("nothing") leaves but one conclusion: Ms Garafolo feels that it is because Cain is black, that he cannot be trusted.
When I watched the clip of Garafolo the nitwit and Keith Oberdouchebag, I probably increased the audience about 50% . Who in their right mind could watch and reflect on anything these clowns have to say?
