An Odd Citizen’s Search For Vanishing Freedoms

The start of every State of the Union speech begins with the grave announcement that the “supreme one” has arrived. “Madam Speaker: The President of the United States of America,” he gravely intones. And then the clapping can begin.
What he should say is: “Madam Speaker: The Chief Bureaucrat of the United States Government.” […]

Score for egotism in the Sun God’s State of the Disaster speech: 93 instances of “I”, “Me” or “My”. Bush blamed as usual, economically illiterate as usual. Enthusiastically endorsed by a grinning Pelosi as usual. Too long as usual. Sophomoric blather, as usual. He’s making it up as he goes, and it […]

The Sun God lets you know who he really is, what he considers important. It’s all about him. See the video from his recent “jobs” speech in which he mentions himself 132 times!

(Thanks to Americans for Prosperity)
It is reported that he intends tonight in the State of the Union speech to repackage […]

Dems join effort to block global warming rules A little good sense from a few Democrats.
One wonders how long it will take for the political class to realize that the blocks have been completely knocked out from under the global warming scare.

For more than a decade I’ve been registered as a Libertarian voter. Before the last election I participated in the local Libertarian gatherings. I’ve contributed money to the Libertarian party and voted for Libertarian candidates. So you could argue that I’m a Libertarian.
Before my Libertarian affiliation I was, and still am at […]

Government budgets need to be hacked, not trimmed. Pictured below is what the seller, Husqvarna, calls a “traditional multi-purpose axe.”

This is the correct tool to use for reducing government budgets down to a practical size. Whole departments need to be eliminated and their employees fired.
Let’s start with the following. Can someone tell […]

From Larry Klayman’s recently published book, “Whores” we get some insight into the ugly political maneuvers that politicians routinely use to provide themselves with loot and political advantages at public expense. We also learn how the political realm includes not only elective office holders, but also the corruption of the judiciary and the bureaucracy […]

Times Online has an article titled World misled over Himalayan glacier meltdown. This traces the origin of an IPCC statement that the Himalayan glaciers will disappear by 2035 with “probability of greater than 90%”. It is now revealed that the original prediction was no more than speculation by a scientist several years before […]

Ralph Peters, retired Army officer describes the “Hood Massacre Report Gutless and Shameful.” This report by the Pentagon bureaucracy avoids any mention of Islamic Terrorism. Peters writes:
The answer is straightforward: Hasan’s superiors feared — correctly — that any attempt to call attention to his radicalism or to prevent his promotion would backfire on […]

The reason given is that the company has experienced a high level of cyber-attacks against its headquarters operations, such attacks originating in China. Google says that some of these attacks succeeded in stealing valuable information from the company’s […]

OK, Harry Reid reportedly said something very shocking. He told the truth!
a. Barack Obama is light skinned. (TRUE)
b. Barack Obama doesn’t use the Negro vernacular in his speech unless he wants to. (TRUE)
c. Based on “a” and “b” above, his electoral chances were enhanced — Harry’s opinion. (also TRUE in my opinion.)
Democrats […]

Good Enough for Government Work?

I’m a great fan of panics, riots, myths and media scares. These are all manifestations of the human proclivity for group-think and mob psychology, a most interesting and sometimes dangerous phenomenon. Thus I was pleased to see the article entitled The Top Twelve Faux Media Scares of the Past Decade in Andrew Breitbart’s […]

Thanks to Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com article by Paul A. Rahe. Here is the concluding quote from the article:
President Obama is a man of breathtaking self-regard and self-absorption. As many have noted, he can hardly give a speech without eulogizing himself and intimating that his Presidency marks a watershed in American, if not world history. […]

Despite numerous campaign promises to debate health care legislation openly, on CSPAN even, our Sun God President, along with his henchmen Reid and Pelosi are behind the curtain of secrecy plotting the health care take-over they will submit for a vote. Click the link below to review Obama’s insincere lies promises.

Gosh, it’s cold out there. Record breaking arctic cold blankets the U.S., Europe and Asia.
But don’t despair. Relief is nigh. Just crank up all your SUV’s and Coal Fired Power Plants. Fill the atmosphere with enough CO2 to stop that cold with good old AGW.
UPDATE: Al Gore’s doing his part. […]

Here are two posts from a blogger I’ll now add to my must-read list.
Dems Delustional Quest for Historic Grandure plus one of the clearest discussions of Obama/Pelosi/Reid socialized medicine I’ve yet read.
Give it a click. You won’t be disappointed.

Big Brother comes to New Zealand in government requirements for all providers of communications, telephone, internet, web surfing, etc. to install taps that will be accessible to the government.

The measures are the largest expansion of police and SIS surveillance capabilities for decades, and mean that all mobile calls and texts, email, internet surfing and online […]

Ireland has passed a blasphemy law. The majority Green party of Ireland, under Fianna Fail, confirms the saw that greens are stop lights, too yellow to admit they’re reds. Blasphemy? Holy shit! The Dark Ages commeth.

The new law imposes a penalty of up to 25,000 Euros for publishing or uttering anything that […]

Amidst the dismal background of hypocrisy about Islamic savagery we’re subject to amnesia about another brutal force in the world — the remaining Communist states.
We’ve been lulled into thinking that China, Vietnam, North Korea, and Cuba are really just harmless “socialist” relics. In the case of China and Vietnam our government and industry regard […]

The Reuters headline says, “PARIS (Reuters) - Youths burned 1,137 cars across France overnight as New Year’s Eve celebrations once again turned violent, the French Interior Ministry said on Friday.” The perpetrators are described as “youths.” Some youths. Those Frenchie kids are really violent monsters, or maybe they just don’t like cars.
