In which...

...Roberta X channels Barry Goldwater.

We need more conservatives that understand that "limited government" applies to all aspects of government, not just the parts they don't like.


Two wrongs do make a right!

The head RINO is running a bit...scared

(Via the Drudge Report)

Arizona Sen. John McCain, the Republicans' standard-bearer in 2008, is facing a surprisingly strong primary challenge from the right, evidence that even party leaders aren't safe from the swell of conservative activism heading into the 2010 midterm elections.

McCain has worked to get his presumptive primary opponent, JD Hayworth, off the air as he protested his radio show. He's getting Scott Brown and Sarah Palin to stump for him (which costs them both points with me) and he's trying his best to voice what I will call a "conservative mating call".

Let's hope Arizona voters recognize a phony conservative when they hear one.

Today's "Let me bum you out" thought

(Via John Mauldin's "Outside the Box" newsletter)

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy...."

Alexander Fraser Tytler, Scottish lawyer and writer, 1770

Feel free to look at the Amateur In Chief's $3.8 trillion budget proposal (highlighted at the White House web site as "A New Era of Responsibility"--*gack*) through this lens.

It's going to be a bit quieter for a while around here

Due to a lack of spare effort and a certain amount of "Great Ghu, what can you say about an out of control fascist-leaning government that hasn't already been said", I'm not going to be posting as much for a while. I'm not sure how long that's going to last, other than to say just that. It doesn't mean I won't post anything, but likely it's going to be of the "Hey, look over here at this cool thing" nature.

Now watch something happen tomorrow that I simply can't let lie.

I recommend to you...
