Bob in Louisiana @ C-SPAN regarding Obama’s foreign policy:It’s like this; The people in the United States don’t know what’s going on in the rest of the world. The media in America has been in a blackout for 5 years. And, Putin knows that Obama is not eligible to be president. So, that’s why Putin’s got Obama over a barrel. If only the media in the United States would give us the information that the whole world knows…
BR/ORYR: Amazing the host didn’t drop the call. Although, he was ready as he puts his finger on the drop button…
Our revolution changed the world. Our Declaration of Independence proclaims self-evident truths. That all men are created equal, they’re endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These words shook a world held in the vise-grip of hereditary privilege inspiring people around the globe. Our Constitution established a representative republic with a limited government of the people, by the people and for the people.
We’ve watched as our constitutionally limited government grew until today it’s a leviathan running amok like Godzilla in Tokyo smashing things and scaring boy scouts.
Today the Federal government is the largest employer in America, states are the largest employers in the states and counties are among the largest employers in the counties; get the picture? Government is on a rampage and unless Mothra is going to fly in to save the day we’ll have to deal with Frankenstein-on-the-Potomac ourselves.
Putting moonbats in charge of the government means putting them in charge of the military. As the Washington Navy Yard has proven and Fort Hood has proven twice, that means reducing the most powerful military in world history to this:
I’m told this is from an actual training slide. At this point in America’s Hopey Change decline into dysfunctional farce, I believe it.
Here’s another reason government should never own a business.
In February 2010, the Obama administration’s transportation secretary, Ray LaHood, told America, without a shred of evidence, that Toyota automobiles were dangerous to drive. LaHood offered the remarks in front of the House subcommittee that was investigating reports of unintended-acceleration crashes. “My advice is, if anybody owns one of these vehicles, stop driving it,” he said, sending the company’s stock into a nose dive.
Even at the time, LaHood’s comments were reckless at best. Assailing the competition reeks of political opportunism and cronyism. It also illustrates one of the unavoidable predicaments of the state’s owning a corporation in a competitive marketplace. And when we put LaHood’s comment into perspective today, it’s actually a lot worse. The Obama administration not only had the power and ideological motive to damage the largely nonunionized competition but also was busy propping up a company that was causing preventable deaths.
