Quote for the Day

Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it. --John D. Rockefeller

Why Are the Tyrants Jumpy

"The Honduran military on Sunday ousted leftist President Manuel Zelaya and exiled him to Costa Rica - an action rejected by much of the world, including the United States and its sometimes foe, Venezuela.

The apparent catalyst for the coup came last week when Mr. Zelaya decided to go ahead with a nationwide referendum on whether he could purse a second term in office. Honduran electoral law limits leaders to one four-year term." [link]

Hmmm! A leftist leader ousted from power for attempting to make a power grab that goes against the laws of that nation!

"President Obama joined other regional leaders in calling for a peaceful return of Zelaya to office.

But the Honduran National Congress defiantly announced that Zelaya was out, and its members named congressional leader Roberto Micheletti the new president on Sunday afternoon.

The Honduran Supreme Court also supported the removal of Zelaya, saying that the military was acting in defense of democracy." [link]

And then the said Nations Congress and highest Courts uphold the decision because it was done in defense of democracy!

"Earlier, Obama said in a statement he was "deeply concerned" about the events, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Zelaya's arrest should be condemned." [link]

And then two of Americas great Tyrants in training leap to the defense of a man who was in the midst of a sweeping power-grab. Wonder why they would back someone like this? Oh, could it be because they are like minded and after the same thing.

Dictator Chavez is up in arms about this, Obama as always is "deeply concerned", and Hillary is for condemnation of the action. Could it be that these pseudo-tyrants are starting to see what could possibly happen to them if they continue down the road of ignoring the voices of the people, of shoving aside the laws of the land that they live in for their own purposes?

Why Bother Anymore

"The White House left open the possibility Sunday that President Obama could tax employer-provided health insurance to pay for his $1 trillion universal health care plan, a violation of the president's campaign pledge to not raise taxes on middle-class families." [link]

Why bother even reporting stories like this anymore. It is already obvious that this man has no sense of honor and/or honesty and just said or did whatever it took to get elected. Also with the drooling media and a large portion of the citizenry either too stupid or too apathetic to do anything about the travesties going on is Washington D.C. it may just be best if everyone just took their choice of "opiate for the masses" and held their television remotes just a little bit tighter, cause they're going to be in for a long bumpy ride.
