Quote for the Day

"What a perversion of the normal order of things! ... to make power the primary and central object of the social system, and Liberty but its satellite." -- James Madison

That's Mighty Big of Him

"President Obama on Monday plans to gather his Cabinet for the first time as president and challenge it to cut $100 million in the next 90 days, two senior administration officials said." [link]

This huge cut equals roughly .00012% of the massive $785 billion porkulus bill. How about you look at some of the pork in that bill and see what kind of cuts can be made right off the top.

Do you think Obama actually think this $100 million ploy will work to appease the public. I am sure that for some it will. Step back and look at what this administration has already spent. This is not a challenge it is more like spitting in the faces of the American people.

Welcome to the United Socialist States of Amerika

"If you one of the estimated 750,000 Americans who attended one of about 600 TEA parties last week, you might have seen media cameras covering the event. Media cameras, however, were not the only cameras taking video at these events, something that has at least one current FBI agent concerned over the future of America...placed his concerns for true patriots of the U.S. over his own career when he confided that covert surveillance was “planned and performed” at each of the TEA parties that took place last Tuesday."

Isn't that nice to know. Wonder when law abiding Americans who have the right to peaceably assemble, the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and the right to speak freely became the enemy? Could it be they became the enemy when those that have no love, or regard for this great nation or our Constitution came into power? And I am not just talking about Obama, Bush probably did more damage to the Constitution than Obama has done. But when will it end? When will the government that is supposed to be ran by the people, allow the people to do as they will so long as they do not infringe on the rights of others?
