Thanks, but no thanks

Ashley Herzog's column today provides yet another example of the disastrous and often fatal consequences of allowing liberals too much authority. To read it go to:
I was just recalling this very example with friends over the past weekend, so her column was very timely for me.

Liberals never seem to care about the potential harm that may result from their "do-gooder" schemes. Once they've made up their collective minds that something is good (or bad) for us libs shut off all debate and force their "prescription" down our throats. Pity anyone who dares to question them, as most liberals have absolutely no tolerance for opposing views - despite their claims to the contrary.

Nor do liberals take accountability for their failures. If liberals acknowledge their failures at all, which is quite rare, they do so only to shift the blame. You see it's never their fault things didn't work out as they had planned. Their failure is usually the result of mean and uncompassionate Republicans sabotaging their noble efforts.

A classic example is the explosion in the poverty rate after LBJ's "War on Poverty." How often have you heard liberals admit that LBJ's programs did far more harm than good? How often do they admit that government "assistance" programs often trap people in poverty? Rather than acknowledging the obvious and learning from their mistakes, liberals continue to call for more government handouts.

Liberals wonder why more people don't trust them when they offer assistance. Do they not realize that many of us have longer memories than they give us credit for? They must think we've forgotten all about the victims of their DDT ban, the lives destroyed by their "War on Poverty" and the many other times their "help" has ended up hurting people. That is all the reason we need to say "No thanks"!

Political Spin

Bill Clinton said he was going to run the most ethical administration ever. Then President Clinton, after committing perjury and obstructing justice, became only the second president to ever be impeached.

Barack Obama claims he is a uniter. It has now become painfully clear to all but those on the far left that Mr. Obama is in fact a very divisive politician.

It seems anytime a politician has a glaring weakness (e.g. Clinton's lack of ethics, Obama's divisiveness, etc.) the way he deals with it is to continually claim the opposite virtue. By repeating the falsehood often enough he is able to deceive many people into thinking he is who he claims to be...which is the opposite of who he really is.

The sad reality is that the spin often works. As difficult as it is to believe, there are actually Americans who - despite the HUGE mountain of evidence to the contrary - to this day still think Bill Clinton is an ethical person. Go figure.

So what will Obama do now and how will people react? No doubt he will continue to claim he is a uniter and a fair percentage of Americans will believe him. After all, if he says he is a uniter he must be, right?

Obama the Extremist

Cartoon is by Glenn McCoy.

Does anyone doubt that if a Republican's voting record was as conservative as Obama's is liberal, the media would be calling the Republican an "extremist" and a "right-wing zealot"? Obama is one of the most EXTREME (liberal or conservative) candidates EVER to run for president yet the media is fawning all over him and calling him a "uniter" who "transcends politics". Go figure.

Abortion is just one of the many issues in which Obama has an EXTREMIST voting record.

The 2-0 Royals. UPDATE - ROYALS NOW 3-0!

UPDATE - KC Royals are now 3-0. Royals are only remaining undefeated team in baseball - ya gotta love it!

As of right now, the Kansas City Royals have the best record in the American League at 2-0!

As of right now, the Kansas City Royals have the best record in the American League at 2-0!

So what if the 2008 season is still in its infancy. Long suffering Royals fans like myself have waited what seems like an eternity for this. One of the great things about baseball is that no matter how bad your team team did the year(s) before, once the new season arrives your past failures no longer matter. You are filled with hope that maybe, just maybe, this could be THE season we turn things around.

BTW, yes I do realize that I typed "As of right now, the Kansas City Royals have the best record in the American League at 2-0!" twice. It felt so good typing it the first time, I couldn't help myself.
