The men who signed the Declaration of Independence were signing their death warrants, nothing more, nothing less. Unlike liberals in our universities or in front of the cameras at any given Hollywood self worship service, these men truly embodied what it means to fight for principle, and do it with courage.
It is hard to understand how what they did could be trivialized by accusations they were a bunch of greedy rich white men when signing that piece of paper cost so many of them not just their property, but their lives, and the lives of their families as well.
Today, September 11, 2009, I hope this video reminds all who view it the price that was paid for the freedom we have, and understand and remember what was really assaulted on this day 8 years ago.

So this was Obama's "last chance" to "seal the deal" on health care "reform." I don't know if it will work, its still too early to say. It's always hard to gauge how people will respond to teleprompter rhetoric only a mother could love.
He really laid it on thick at the end with the stuff about Kennedy. I'm sure the "progressive" side of the aisle had eyes almost as wet as their pants over it, even though bringing him up was more predictable than the happy ending of any Disney movie (especially if said happy ending involves rolling the credits of High School Musical 3, like the Bush administration some eras really just needed to end).
One thing is for sure, Obama says the time for bickering has come to an end. Well, that's that! Thanks for clearing everything up on the matter Mr. President! No more arguing...now its time to do as he says.

This video officially puts them on the list....and I'm really not sure why I didn't add them before. I want to express the reasons I love this video, but its a big fat spoiler so I wont do it....just be patient, it's not only hilarious, but I think its brilliantly crafted.
Big kudos to Red State Update!
All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.

For years, and years and years and years and years and on it goes, we heard over and over and over and over and over again from liberals about the dictatorial nature of George W. Bush. Works cited in the Hiltarian comparisons to our latest former president include blogs, the diligent work of movie editors employed by Michael Moore, well sourced award acceptance speeches at celebrity self worship services, and lectures in our nations colleges all the way down to "foundation basket weaving."
Now its their guy in charge, and its not just anyone, this is the guy who invented new words for the english language....like "hope" and "change."
Yeah I know he didn't create those words, I'm just telling you what I agree to when I meet one of his zombies, I don't want them to sense I have a brain and then try to bite in to it.Add a comment
You can go ahead and read this or you can hear my summation of it...basically, I'm trying to figure out if this is an news story, editorial, or brazen sexual advance toward President Obama.
Its tempting to make the jokes and take the shots at Teddy for what he did back in 1969. Its probably even justified. However, he was also loved by his family and his passing is genuinely mourned so I'm not going to roast him on that....
Not today anyway.
All my life I've been trying to understand why so many people don't see how whole romanticizing of the Kennedy family and the idea that their dynasty is embodied in the concept of "Camelot" is more artificial than a cloned copy of Joan Rivers's face.Add a comment
It looks like there is finally a connection of Obama to President Lincoln that isn't just geography based, and it actually applies. Lincoln's faith guided his principles in keeping the country together as he looked to Jesus's admonition that a house divided cannot stand.
It appears Obama is taking that to heart.
I've been really naive. I truly thought that the actions of liberals in a post 9-11 era would not even come close to measuring up to their rhetoric, especially after Bill Clinton spent 8 years hamstringing our intelligence community as if he was cuffing an old girlfriend to a bedpost.
Obama seems bound and determined to make the CIA his..........um, I don't want to say it because it really is crude and I really try not to use words with any hint of profanity unless there is a good reason to do so....so I will say this, its a five letter word that rhymes with bitch.
I recently had it out on Facebook with liberal friends of mine (yes I have them...no they don't know I do this, I want to keep them) who admonished me and the right for spreading lies that, among other things, Obama wants to abolish private health insurance.
In addition to being a great place to watch user generated video youtube makes a handy cricket sound maker for liberal propagadists. More on that in a bit...
Without a doubt Obama is the most I.T. savvy president yet, but like everything else in the "ship of state" this is little consolation considering the internet is probably the worst thing that could ever happen to politicians.
Its really cool that the president knows how to blog and email and twitter and myspace and blackberry and lightsaber and teleport and has developed an iPhone app that makes his poop smell like hope....but in spite of all of this Obama's administration has maintained a Defcon Biden level of stupidity when it comes to the way they act and the tactics it has engaged in to promote its agenda with technology. Even though they have it and they know how to use it their rhetorical strategies continue to party like its 1989.Add a comment
So a couple of days ago Kathy Griffin guest hosted Larry King Live (which is a misnomer on King's part but I digress) and for some reason Levi Johnston got to be on it with her. I guess those D-listers have to stick together. I didn't watch the whole segment, because I know my physical reaction to it will give me insight on how swine flu feels, but there was one little exchange that I found interesting:
GRIFFIN: ....Can we please talk about Miley Cyrus' performance? OK, let's cut to it. First of all, Miley Cyrus was at the Teen Choice Awards. She comes out in the set of a trailer, which is clearly her own home that they drove out there. She comes out in sexy hot pants, and started grinding, and then went and did a number on the stripper pole.
Then, Levi, who is 19, turns to me and says, isn't she 16? That shocked you, Levi. And you're 19.
JOHNSTON: It did. She did her little thing on the pole. I thought it was a bit inappropriate for the Teen Awards.
GRIFFIN: I agree. You know, even though I'm older than you -- I just turned 24 -- still I think it was too much.
Right on! Way to speak out Levi you're awes-
Isn't this the guy who knocked up a 17 year old girl? So lets get this straight, teenage girls should only ride poles that produce out of wedlock babies....RIGHT Levi?
Nonsense like this is like nails on a chalkboard for me, because he is right, but when did the morality police give this guy a badge?
Also, when is anyone going to zap this guy for his unearned fame? The media wont stop going on about how Palin quit being governor to cash in on her national fame giving speeches and making millions to pay for undeserved legal fees. Teenage boys impregnate their girlfriends every day, but this one gets the adulation of the media because his little guys made it with the daughter of a woman who almost became vice president AND....well.....I don't really know what else there is to it.
At least Sarah Palin has done things of consequence in this life. All Johnston did was win the mother load of all life's lotteries. If Bristol Palin's mother wasn't who she was he'd be just another Jerry O'Connell in "Can't Hardly Wait" crashing Homecoming Dances at his old high school and bragging to freshman girls that he "used to run this place" in pathetic attempts to give Tripp some half-siblings.Add a comment
Considering the source I may have to actually agree with her for once, I think the Queen of Botox knows a thing or two about what fake really is...but thats just me....Add a comment
