Obama exposed. Meetings and tables. Seizing power. Trusting the local paper. Plus more.
LOSING IT TO THE LOSERS

Yes, liberty lost will be hard to get back. Since bureaucracy is
made of people, it will fight for its survival, as libertarians
do individually and communists do collectively. It seems the post
1960s educated crowd say the middle way is good government, so
the goobers don’t get the shaft — yeah, sure.

I like Ben Stein, but come on, the part about Hillary “giving Iran the go-ahead to have a nuclear weapon” is pretty a far-fetched interpretation of her statement:
“We want Iran to calculate what I think is a fair assessment, that if the U.S. extends a defense umbrella over the region, if we do even more to support the military capacity of those in the gulf, it’s unlikely that Iran will be any stronger or safer, because they won’t be able to intimidate and dominate, as they apparently believe they can, once they have a nuclear weapon.”
If you want to remain credible, then link to the exact statement
you mean or else don’t try to stretch the truth. The worst thing
for conservatives is that they get fired up and lose credibility
in the eyes of the left.

Thank you so very very much for your insight in this, I wish all
Americans could see this now!

In case you haven’t heard, Ben, we’re having a drought in Texas. Of course, we’re always having a drought, but this one’s a bit toasty, 36 days (usually about 12) so far this year, of 100+ degrees. Now, under these conditions, what should come into my mind after reading your article? Why, the Kingston Trio and their Merry Minuet, of course. So, with a few editorial changes, here it is, for the benefit of, oh, I don’t know, how about our Mr. Hope and Change. Do you think he reads TAS?
(And fellow TAS readers, if you don’t know the original lyrics, Google it! That’s what I’m told when I ask a question.)
Merry Minuet (50 years later)
They’re fighting in Columbia (FARC - Freeing All Repressed
They’re starving in Spain (poor Seville)
There’s hurricanes in Florida (well, not yet, but there will be)
AND TEXAS NEEDS RAIN!!
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls (government run
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles (still crazy after all these years)
Italians hate Yugoslavs (wait, is that Croatia or Serbia? I’m confused), South Africans hate the Dutch (and us)
AND FRANKLY, MR. HOPE AND CHANGE, YOU DON’T SEEM TO LIKE ANYBODY VERY MUCH!! (especially to the Cambridge police)
But we can be tranquil, and thankful and proud,
‘Cause we have Barack, there’s no mushroom-shaped cloud.
Still, I’d bet for certain that some lovely day,
Someone will set the spark off, (Kim Jung-il?)
AND WE WILL ALL BE BLOWN AWAY!!
They’re fighting in Columbia
There’s strife in Iran (Is ACORN over there, too?)
What nature doesn’t do to us (Wow, 50 years, how did Al Gore know way back then?)
Will be done by our fellow Ameri-CAN!!

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?
