“I am not here as a serf or vassal…

….I am not begging my lords for mercy. I’m a born free American woman, wife, mother and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you’ve forgotten your place.

“It’s not your responsibility to look out for my well-being, and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve American liberty. You’ve sworn to perform that duty. And you have faltered.”

—Becky Garritson of the Wetumpka (Alabama) Tea Party testifying Tuesday to the House Ways and Means Committee.

Using the Army to stop the Tea Party

Nevermind the Pentagon striking the word jihad from the military lexicon, at Obozo’s order, thereby eliminating references to a genuine threat.

How about this new effort by a retired Army colonel and a University of Kansas historian? They wrote an Army War College scenario telling how the military can take over the role of the civilian police and quash a right-wing Tea Party takeover of an American town.

“In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest…”

The Occupy Movement, composed of genuine thugs, rapists and assorted felons, isn’t mentioned. Well, they had Obozo’s backing.

The colonel and the professor, not to mention the War College, really need to stop watching MSNBC as much as they apparently do. Waste of time, folks. And more: it’s criminally stupid.

This little scenario, alone, is going to cost you in credibility and respect from the American people, without whose continuing regard the military cannot succeed at anything.

If you don’t approve of Obamalot you’re a racist

Take it from Maxine Waters, famous black Congressional crook, and, of course, old Hymietown himself, the, ahem, “reverend” Jesse Jackson.

These professional race-baiters are having a tough time dealing with Obamalot’s job approval rating having plunged to 38 percent. That’s Bush Jr. territory. And the rating for his handling of the economy? Even worse: 26 percent. Those are from Gallup, the famous Democrat pollster.

So far Maxine, Jesse and another comrade (how do you like her red satin cowboy hat and wagging index finger?) are going after the Tea Party, which they seem to have mistaken for the KKK.

But, then, everyone who disagrees with them ultimately gets the Klan treatment. And it won’t be long before they’ll be calling racist anyone who doesn’t stand up and salute every time the Dopey-Changey guy goes by in his 50-vehicle motorcade, on the way to his next vacation.

UPDATE:  Heh. Even Hurricane Irene wants a piece of him.

Beggars In Spain

This first of a Nancy Kress sci-fi classic trilogy could as readily be titled Beggars In Dallas, even though it was only a metaphor in the first place. Some of the rest of the book, despite its focus on genetic enhancements, has a sort of outdated feel to it, as well. Well, it was written several decades ago.

But the philosophical argument the story and characters illustrate, between Ayn Rand individualism and the Russian immigrant author’s despised forced altruism is as fresh as the deficit-reducing Tea Party versus Obamacare.

In the end, Kress’s main protagonist decides a compromise between producers and beggars works best and that seems wise. It’s also rather obvious, but in the author’s deft hands, getting there is well worth the journey.

Boo-hoo Barney, and boo-boo Boxer

Glad the Reps have the House back (after the lame-duck Dems first ram through more trash spending and onerous regulations) but, really, are Massachusetts voters that stupid they had to re-elect Barney “The Whiner” Frank?

Guess so. And San Francisco voters Barbara Boxer? That one doesn’t surprise me. There’s always next time, as I do believe this Tea Party throw-the-bums out push will continue. Including the bums who won this time if they keep spending big bucks and passing more oppressive big-government regulations.

UPDATE:  In addition to being a disheveled jerk, Boston’s favorite butt boy is also a crook:

“This summer, the paper reported a controversial taxpayer bailout Frank arranged for a Boston bank at the center of an ethics scandal involving disgraced California congresswoman Maxine Waters, disgraced ex-state Sen. Diane Wilkerson and a disgraced banker arrested on rape and cocaine charges.

“Then there was Frank’s trip to the Virgin Islands aboard a private jet owned by a bailout billionaire. And the $40,000 his campaign took from bailout banks after he promised not to. And finally, there was the Herald video capture of Frank’s partner taunting Sean Bielat after a debate.”

No surprises here.


Meanwhile, over at the Communist News Network polling place, the Tea Party has a higher approval rating than the chief magistrate of Obamalot: 50 vs 42 percent.

Fighting ObamaCare: San Antonio docs

“Doctors at a health care network in the San Antonio area — HealthTexas Medical Group — have gone on the offensive with an open letter to their patients. The letter is signed by 16 of the group’s physicians, and it lays out a strong case for why ObamaCare is a disaster in the making.”

It also urges November voters to take down three area Democrat congressmen (Ciro Rodriguez, Henry Cuellar, and Charlie Gonzalez) who:

“voted with President Obama in this rushed plan to pass a Healthcare bill, against the wishes of 70 percent of seniors.”

It’s this party-line voting, appeasing the party’s establishment, against the wishes of a majority of their own constituents (and the Republicans have done it before, too), that brought the rise of the Tea Party—despite legacy-media types like MSNBC’s Eugene Robinson maligning the TP for leading a mere “temper tantrum.”
