A Good Look at the Government Zombies

This Should Creep You Out

It's TRUE. The electric company really does want to have control of your thermostat ... all for a good "social justice" purpose, right???

Click the link to see how sweetly the hook is baited ...

Like hell I am going to let them access my thermostat. Do you really think that control of peak demand is the only thing this access into you home eventually be used for? Keep Dreaming.

Arizona Law on Illegal Aliens Examined in the Context of Federalism

A great article appropriate to the Arizona Situation*.

* I just realized that I have been a fool in going along with the immigration patina that has been put on this issue  and see that we should jettison linkage of the act of crossing border illegally to "immigration" and start using terms that describe what it actually is  - illegal entry or trespass. It is NOT Immigration any more than bank robbery is excess withdrawal.

It is a shame how the left is so adept at co-opting the language and using that to then frame the argument in their favor.

Shame on me for not catching this sooner.

Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds ....California Meltdown Derangement Syndrome Becomes Apparent

A recent   article about the California meltdown says

California’s fiscal crisis is just the right time for it to become a laboratory for progressive reform, at least according to according to organizers of this year’s Netroots Nation conference. From the schedule:

This panel will examine how progressives are working to move California from being a failed state to a progressive laboratory for change, consider the opportunities and possibilities for fixing what has become broken and assess the obstacles the state still faces as we seek to restore the California Dream.

You have to be kidding. Really??? In case you had not noticed, California already is a progressive laboratory for change. That change is what has brought things to their present state. What has become broken, has become broken because do-gooders & progressives hell bent on wanting to control the uncontrollable have broken it trying to fix things that were not broken.

Thus it is that over the background sounds of splat, plop, splat, these California progressives are still heard to cry: “We must save our brother lemmings! Onward, fellow lemmings! More lemmings over the cliff!!

Those Pesky Gun Laws

From another biased story in the LameStream Media:

The patrols have been occurring on public land, and militia members have no real restrictions on their weaponry because of Arizona's loose gun laws.
Uh ... like that "loose" 2d amendment thing???

~ Cato

The guiding principle of Donald Berwick, recess-appointed head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:
"The unaided human mind, and the acts of the individual, cannot assure excellence. Health care is a system, and its performance is a systemic property."

Precisely – that’s why we cannot entrust it to you (or any committee). You are right, health care is a system, an economic system. As such, it is governed by the aggregate decisions of individuals. You are trying to change that system into a bureaucracy.

Real People - Real America

I was driving down the street the other day and this caught my eye. I do think that this is what mainstream America thinks, yet that those in Washington, including even the Republican delegation simply do not care to hear.

Hopefully, that will be at their own peril, and hopefully, after 2010, those newly ushered into power will not turn their own deaf ears to those that put them there.

THAT is what I mean by Hope and Change.

BP-Celebrities Refuse to Donate Time To Gulf Spill Victims

A friend of mine says the following:

So where are all the "Save the Gulf" concerts?? Where are the TV benefits with celebrities and musicians giving heart felt speeches on the poor fishermen, wildlife, beaches, loss of income and "destroyed" gulf economy?? I find it rather strange how these people are so quick to "help" Haiti and other countries...but sit on their ASSES for this one.

I owe you N O T H I N G

What a Great Idea


This is the kind of creative thinking we need in our country. Don’t know if you want to blog it, but it will interest you.

~ A concerned Citzen
I'm just a mom of a soldier, but I sent my advice to the ONE. Dear Barack Obama, I have a simple inexpensive solution to the flow of drugs, and illegal immigrants coming across our southern boarder I know our military is stretched thin, with two wars going on. My son in law just recently got out of the army after two 15 month tours in Iraq. He first went through boot camp, then infantry training in Louisiana (Louisiana? Are we fighting a war in a swamp some where that I don't know about?). What if Infantry training stations were set up all along the southern boarder? The climate and terrain are similar to Afghanistan. When in Louisiana my son in law stayed a lot of his training time in the field, or in tents. What would be the cost to set up tents at these infantry stations for our troops to use while they train to prepare them for the war in Afghanistan? Their time would be extended by (I'm not an expert, by all means, but I would think) one to three weeks, because in their final week of training, they would now spend half of their training time (actively) patrolling our boarder carrying live ordinance!

It would all be worked/planned on a rotation type system of training. Think of what that would do for their morale, knowing they are protecting their own homeland border, and it can't cost too much more than where they train now. The simple Intimidation factor to the Mexicans, would scare at least half of them from wanting to even attempt to cross the boarder of the United States of America! And I honestly doubt that any drug dealer would want to take on the United States Military! Sincerely, A Concerned Mother and Patriotic American

What I didn't add to the letter was, "That is unless you are also on the payroll of the drug cartels (paid to ...
