The Real Story of America's Founding

The Real Story of America's Founding

San Francisco is considering a ban on the sale of goldfish. Basically, the government is afraid that people are getting fish as impulse buys and not treating them properly, so they don’t want to allow anyone to buy them at all. They’re also considering a ban on parents having their babies circumcised.

Bombarding Frisco

They’ve already banned Happy Meals, as they think they’re too enticing to children and parents can’t be expected to control what their own kids eat ...

The leaders of these cities have taken it upon themselves to place their own opinions of what people should or should not be doing above basic liberty. They’ve made it the government’s role to be a nanny and have ruled individual choice as unimportant. And I have one thing to say to them:  [Cont]

Pappy I'll throw out a few conjectures:

It's interesting that a former Libyan general turned defector could make it from a house near Langley and get into the rebellion so quickly as well.

Obama gets spanked by CBO head

"We don't estimate speeches"

Congressional Budget Office Director Douglas Elmendorf had some harsh words for President Obama during a hearing held by the House Budget Committee on Thursday to discuss the nation's long-term fiscal outlook.

Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., asked Elmendorf whether the CBO had attempted to estimate the budgetary effects of the framework Obama outlined in April, which was based on a 12-year budget window instead of the usual 10 years.

“We don’t estimate speeches," Elmendorf shot back.

Geert Wilders acquitted

Geert Wilders acquitted on all charges

This morning the Court of Amsterdam has acquitted Geert Wilders of all charges.

“I am delighted with this ruling,” says Geert Wilders. “It is a victory, not only for me but for all the Dutch people. Today is a victory for freedom of speech. The Dutch are still allowed to speak critically about islam, and resistance against islamisation is not a crime. I have spoken, I speak and I shall continue to speak.”

With that he added, "Muhammad was a pedophile and goat fucker. And don't call me Gerty"

Obama says words about Afghanistan
It's always interesting when Obama says words, because then you can compare those words to reality. TheDC's Neil Munro reports: "President Barack Obama is gambling that his gradual military withdrawal from Afghanistan won't prompt the tribal country to spin out of control in the next 12 months and will help him run as a jobs-and-growth candidate in 2012. 'America, it is time to focus on nation building here at home,' Obama declared in his prime-time announcement from the White House." Nation building, or bilking? Munro continues: 

Obama White Paper
Blah-blah-blah.  Since Obama became president U.S. casualty rate in Afghanistan increased 5-fold;  relations with the Afghan government went into the tank, and the thought-for-dead Taliban resurged.

 
If my home was under siege by the Taliban (and this Marylander thinks it is), and congressional democrats showed up to help me fight them off,  I'd dispatch them straight away as an act of self defense.   Even during WWII Roosevelt's cabinet and State Department were riddled with Stalinists;  it's been downhill for democrats since then.

 Undeniable Truth #1 - The United States will never again win an extended conflict if Democrats have any meaningful role in government.  End of discussion. Brrrrp-Brrrrp!
