We're all hostages now

(Via the Drudge Report)

Since the Tea Parties have made it utterly clear that we are most certainly not "all socialists now", The Man Who Would Be King has decreed that we must all be hostages, instead.

According to CBS news, not normally noted for it's criticism of The Obama, "In sixteen speeches, statements and interviews this year, including his State of the Union address, he has decried the hostage-taking of one issue or another...".

You know, they're right. I do feel like a hostage--of a government out of control, of people who think that they are better than I am, smarter than I am, and far more suited to make decisions for me than I am able to make for myself.

Luckily, November 2 is coming. Get out there and not only make some noise, but vote the statist bastards out on their socialist ears!

Not any more, it doesn't

TV's longest running soap opera, "As The World Turns", ends after a 54 year run.

I can remember my mom watching this when I was a kid. Just for laughs, I may try to find the final episode just to see how many heartstrings they try to pull.

Happy Constitution Day!

Read it lately? Be sure to grab a copy of the PDF file, just in case someone tries to make it go down the memory hole....

Once again, the Perpetually Offended


Not that I'm attempting to denigrate their concerns, which I'm sure are heart-felt.

Nice to see they get the idea

As the Tea Party rolls along, racking up more and more victories, it's nice to see the legacy political groups lining up for the fight.

"Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee -- and I personally as the committee's chairman -- strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine O'Donnell in Delaware," Cornyn said.

That's a big change from earlier today, when, in a fit of pique, the NRSC spokesdroid said that support for O'Donnell was out of the question.

If we stand any chance at all of getting the US back on track, it's going to have to be forced on the current leadership of both political parties. This morning's nasty remarks from the spokesdroid are further proof of that, as far as I'm concerned.

People like Christine O'Donnell, Kelly Ayott, Carl Paladino and Joel Miller appear to be some of the ones planning on doing it to the Republicans, if they live up to their promises (always a big "if" in politics). I don't know who might do it to the Democrats, given that I see no one on the horizon that looks like a Scoop Jackson or Zell Miller. The kook-fringe of that party seems to have run them all underground, but I have hope that someone will take heart and rise up. I'd like to see that party rise up again as well.

It'd be nice to wake up to a real two- (or more) party system someday soon.

A challenge to another bad law

James A. D’Cruz, 18, has asked a federal judge to declare unconstitutional the ban on handgun sales by federally licensed dealers to 18-20-year-olds.

It seems that James would like to buy a pistol. Local gun store tells him "No", as required by current law. James sues to have the law ruled unconstitutional, using a law firm that has coincidentally worked with the NRA in recent years on Constitutional issues.

I may need to stock up on popcorn; this one has the potential to be a Barbara Boxer-head-exploding good time.

I have never heard of this lady, but you may bet your life I'm going to start listening or watching as much of her stuff as I can find.

Remember, if you click on this link (and it will probably help to be from the South), your keyboard is in danger.

Another memorial to one of the fallen

But this time, it's one who died over 40 years ago, in a war many would rather not remember.
