Slaves to the Government and Proud of It

I originally saw this on Drudge, but it has been popping up in other places.  It is amazing.

The original DNC video was trying to analogize government to club membership. But what is extremely disconcerting is that the rank-n-file Democrats at the convention accept – no embrace – the concept that the government “owns” them.  It is clear in this video montage.

I was especially horrified to see African-Americans embracing this idea. Blacks of all people should collectively reject the idea of being owned by another person or agency.

The majority of blacks in this country are church-goers and are good godly people. So when the Democratic leadership pulls God out of the platform we should expect to hear a loud outcry. But largely there was silence except from the right and pundants who warned of impending doom.

Fearing the pundants were correct is the only reason the leadership changed the platform. Surely another amateurish miscalculation from DWS, Pelosi, Reid, and Dear Leader.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when they decided to remove God and Jerusalem from the platform. You can almost hear the condescending voices argue that Blacks and Jews will vote for us regardless.  Afterall they must believe, “We own them.”

Apparently, there may be more truth to that than I could have ever imagined.

Bankruptcy looms and Congress doesn’t believe it.

We have morons running the country whether you believe it or not.  Democrats think they can spend our way out of collapse, while Republicans think they can cut enough waste without addressing the real problems in the budget.  Compromise is in the air and unfortunately that won’t produce a workable long-term solution.

I wonder how many families compromised their household budgets into bankruptcy in the past 3 years?  If you can’t afford a Mercedes you don’t cut HBO from the cable bill and expect now you can.You have to buy a cheaper car.  That’s my short opinion on the budget crisis.

Meanwhile idiots on the left have already begun fear-mongering while accusing the right of the same thing.  I told you Obamacare would be defended by cries of Republicans trying to kill babies and rob the poor.  Oh well, in 2008 I predicted Federal default would come in 2017.  So far we appear to be on-course.  I bet the Alinsky-crowd is giddy.  But, you know they are biting their collective nails wondering if they can lock it in before they lose the White House and the Senate.

So expect the fear-mongering and accusations of racism to be cranked to 11.

I now reprint a letter I received from Erick Erickson last night:

Dear Fellow Conservative,
Our nation is facing bankruptcy, yet liberals in Washington keep
spending.

Some liberals are actually talking about a new stimulus, while
even some self-described conservatives balk at spending cuts.

We now stand at a tipping point, facing financial catastrophe.
We, our children, and our grandchildren will pay the price for 
this failure of leadership.

Conservatives must speak out, because we are running out of time
to get Washington's attention and put America back on the
right course. Since you're a RedState conservative, I know you 
understand this. You know the importance of changing the
game in Washington. 
That's why I urge you to watch my video about spending cuts.
I've recorded a short video that explains more and gives you a
way to let Congress know you want them to step up and stop
the spending. Let your voice be heard!
There's no better way for you to fight back and advance the
conservative ideas that are the only solution to what ails America.
Our country is running out of time. But if we act today, I believe
we can overcome this crisis and restore America to greatness.
Please watch now.
Let’s go!

What goes around… ending the filibuster

In 2005 Republicans considered changing the filibuster rules in the Senate to their own benefit and the detriment of the then minority Democrats.  Democrats were outraged they cried foul.  Sure, Democrats were, at the time, acting as pure and simple obstructionists, however, they were right in their complaints.  The minority party should have some mechanism to slow down or stop legislation, (or a judicial confirmation), that they feel is seriously flawed.  The 60 votes required to stop a filibuster is a good thing.  It protects the minority from becoming irrelevant.

Flash forward to 2011.  Democrats have controlled Congress for four years, Continue reading
