"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

My Favorite Health Care Debate Mob Photo

Man, did I pick the wrong summer to try to blog and write a novel at the same time. Between the White House calls for reporting "fishy" rumors about health care during a "casual conversation," (unbelievable...) and Obama's "I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talkin'" (created the health care system?) rant this week, I had to put aside my book and just observe for a short time. Honestly, I don't know whether to laugh, or to just pack up and move to Japan or Singapore.

The great unifier image of Obama has pretty much been, not merely shattered (that happened months ago), but completely forgotten. Does anybody even remember the high hopes of the "I Pledge..." Video days? My reaction to that video has become even worse... It still makes me retch, but now I actually taste the bile in my mouth. Ah...but more on that in a later post.

When I saw the photo above on Legal Insurrection, I had to laugh-- so I guess I'm staying in the US. Of course, these are the folks that Obama "doesn't want to do a lot of talkin'." The pic is from Dana Loesch's "Meet the Mob" post and there are number of amusing pics in the post. Check them out and enjoy.

I'll probably have more to say later... if I can find the words. Right now my vocabulary is failing me-- but then I won't resort to some folksy affectation like Obama. "I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talkin'. I want them to get outta the way so I can clean up the mess. I don't mind cleanin' up after 'em, but don't do a lot of talkin'." Good Lord...


  1. I'm thinking a lot of us will be living elsewhere before this "mess" is "cleaned up"!

    Just for starters, how many businesses that can pay their taxes elsewhere are running out of reasons to stick around?

  2. These people who think that INCREASING government control will prevent increased in cost.

    Does no one remember the billions of dollars of wheat we handed over to the Soviets so their price controlled economy wouldn't fall over and die like it should have?
