Been there. Smart Alec Baldwin. Pure fantasy accounting. Tea time in D.C. Plus more.

“We will be checking the results in 2012, Barack, and holding you accountable.”
Everyone knew Obama was a socialist going into the voting booth and they voted for socialism. As much a liar as he is, Obama is delivering on his socialism which Bush made respectable when he lunged for his manual on central planning from the institute for advanced economic studies published by the CCCP.
The zeitgeist of the age — given to us by left-wing educational institutions — is control and feudalism. You all gave away your freedom and you will never get it back.
Please. Don’t insult my intelligence. Baby boomers = baby
intelligence = totalitarianism.

NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE IT
Re: R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.’s Rush to Rush:
To cover some of the Rush-bashing ‘conservatives,’ I have a new
term for you (not new, actually, but historically often with a
religious connotation): ‘conservative’ scrupulosity.

The current Obama “Enemies List” indicates both fear and
fecklessness. They see their policies failing and can only think
to attack private citizens who offer opposing views. I don’t mean
to add a vindictive note but liberals rode anti-Iraq war
sentiment into power and are now 100% accountable. Neither Rush,
nor Santelli nor even the estimable Mr. Tyrrell hold elected
office nor design public policy. The hard left in America has
craved the actual power they now hold for decades, they have
undermined every battle fought and profited at every victory
earned to promote their statist agenda. It matters not who they
attack or why. They will now bear the righteous wrath of a nation
imbued with centuries of human freedom. Brace yourselves for the
Great Reckoning. It has been a long time coming and shall wash
away this malignant arrogance from our polity. Rush Lives.

IT’S IN THE (TEA) BAG
Re: Jeffrey Lord’s Gandhi for Capitalists:
Jeffrey Lord gives us a timely history lesson, using the examples of Adams, Gandhi, and Martin, and one all Americans should heed. However, his imagined “morning in America” scenario is but a pleasant fiction. America is just too big and heterogeneous for such to occur. And let’s not forget that not everyone is alarmed at the growing power and intrusiveness of government. For one thing, about half of all Americans now pay little or no income tax. What is there for them to worry about? Slightly higher gasoline tax? For another, perhaps 15-20% of Americans are true liberals (in the modern context) and are happy to see bigger government.
Mr. Lord does seem to suggest that the solution must come from outside normal political channels, and it is difficult to argue with that. From the thirties onward, what has been accomplished within those channels? Even Ronald Reagan couldn’t turn back the tide, although perhaps he held it at bay for several years.
What is needed, then, is a solution (1) not utilizing the extant political system; (2) which can start with smaller numbers of involved individuals, where action can be coordinated, and then gather momentum; and (3) will force Federal acquiescence in some form or other.
The folks most involved here are those who have always
played by the rules: Purchased homes they knew they could
afford, paid their mortgages on time, paid their taxes, never
scammed anyone, never “flipped” anything, never defaulted, but
worked long, hard hours and asked in return only to be
allowed to live their lives and raise their families. They are
the ones facing financial bondage and slavery, as the Lord
of Redistribution levels his gaze on them. They will have to
figure out what to do, or not.

I sent the below letter to Barack Obama and my Federal officials and included a tea bag:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
