A nation of dumpster diving, gas lines, class warfare, race cards, and no jobs.
(Page 3 of 4)
New Yorkers living out Obama’s Revenge are now on the television news dumpster diving for food, freezing in the cold, waiting — or standing — in line for six or seven hours for gas. As the dead literally float on Staten Island.
Frantically Obama and Governors Cuomo of New York and Christie of New Jersey have gone about suspending every Big Government roadblock findable.
Over the side goes:
• The Jones Act: a Big Government heritage from Woodrow Wilson, who signed it into law in 1920. What was the problem? The Jones Act kept foreign tankers from moving from port to port in the US. Result — gas is unable to reach the ports of New York and New Jersey. So Obama waived it.
• New York State Tax Law: Funding New York’s liberal Big Government in part was a tax on fee on the movement of fuel oils, accompanied by stiff regulations. Result: the fees and regulations were keeping gas from gas starved New Yorkers. So Cuomo cashiered it.
• New Jersey fuel regulations: These New Jersey regs have been state Big Government “limitations on the source of fuel particular and branded fuel retailers are allowed to sell.” Result: the long gas lines in New Jersey. Christie pitched.
Etcetera. Etcetera. Etcetera.
There are others, but you get the drift. When in trouble… the first thing that gets pitched over the side is Big Government. When Americans get really, really mad at the stupidity of Big Government — the taxes, fees and regulations go over the side faster than you can say “Ex- President Obama.”
But there’s more here. Something even more important than all of this horror.
Obama’s Revenge is more than just the litany of failures that are pushed by Social Justice liberals.
Obama’s Revenge is an attempt to rid America of the fundamentals of the American founding itself.
To replace those fundamental principles of liberty and freedom and the Constitution that enshrines them with the latest chapter in the eternal left-wing search for utopia.
These two books explain exactly what is at stake in the 2012 election. In fact, as recalled here, the reaction to Liberty and Tyranny was a bellwether for the 2010 anti-Obama landslide.
But why? Why exactly did Mark’s book strike such a chord with Americans when it appeared in 2009?
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?
