Yes, you've been had.....

Expert is as expert does:
"Well, obviously, being a renowned expert, Thomas Friedman, like Al Gore and the Prince of Wales, needs a supersized carbon footprint. But you don't - you can get by beating your laundry on the rocks down by the river with the native women all day long.

'Environmentalism' is a government restraint on economic advance and, therefore, social mobility. In other words, it's a way to ensure you'll never live like Tom Friedman."

Don't bother me with facts....

Billions To Stimulate Criminality:
"Don't hold your breath for justice. No doubt Attorney General Eric Holder will soon be too busy hounding former Vice President Dick Cheney — for his forceful effort in waging the global war on terror — to probe the shady outfit that helped elect his boss president."

Quote of the Day...

Andy Borowitz:
"The president said that clinical trials showed that patients who are exposed to one of his pressers usually lose consciousness within three minutes, 'just like Helen Thomas does.'

Mr. Obama's press conference appears to have been a big success, with a new poll showing that 57% of Americans favor the President's health care plan 'if he will promise to stop talking about it.'"

The true definition of a Ponzi scheme:

Reason Magazine:
"The California Air Resources Board issued a fanciful study finding that mandates to cut greenhouse gas emissions will cost Californians essentially nothing. This is pure California dreaming. In his stinging critique of the study, Harvard economist Stavins said that putting the world on a less carbon-intensive path will require serious policy and sacrifice. 'This will not be easy, and it will not be cheap,' he wrote. 'Indeed it will be costly.' Telling the public anything else is just climate change economic denialism."

Sheldon Richman:
"No matter how much the government controls the economic system, any problem will be blamed on whatever small zone of freedom that remains."

The Obamas, and Directive 10-289…

Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual”…
You see, what is happening is that through the “economic emergency,” Obama is trying to implement Rand’s fictitious “Directive 10-289,” which is what the the combination of “stimulus package,” unsupervised TARP bailouts, “Cap and Trade,” and “Health Care Reform” equal when they are rammed down your throats without discussion (or even the reading of the details) by your supposed “representatives” in the national government. Here is Directive 10-289 (h/t

At Least They Have Health Care

David Kahane:
"Luckily, over the past 60 years or so, we’ve managed to convince the once sturdy and stoic American people that illness is not to be borne “manfully” or uncomplainingly, and that constantly worrying, 24/7, about your health is not a sign of hypochondria or outright insanity. Why, to hear us tell it via our stooges in the media and out here in Hollywoodland, the entire country is perpetually on the brink of a financially ruinous physical meltdown, just a pack of cigarettes, a pre-existing condition, a bag of Cheez Doodles, and a closed emergency room away from debilitation, despair, dementia, and death.

...Suffering from brain cancer and on the verge of his final ave atque vale, Senator Kennedy is owed nothing less than the nationalization of health care in return for his selfless public service since that day 40 years ago he left Mary Jo Kopechne to drown off Chappaquiddick Island while he huddled with his advisers. The trauma he suffered that day must be unimaginable, but at least he has health care, even if she doesn’t.
