Weekly Cartoons & More

This week, Obamacare, the Government Shutdown & looming debt "crisis" dominated the news. As I write this there appears to be a deal in the works to restore DC to business as usual - screwing the people to enrich the power crazed political elites. Undoubtedly, both side will claim victory but one thing this little charade has proven is that We The People lose every time.

The current Regime has shown that there is no limit to how low they will go to score points & hurt their political enemies. In his quest to make the partial shutdown of 15% of the government as painful as possible, The One reached new levels of vindictiveness - closing national parks, private businesses, denying death benefits to the families of our fallen soldiers, etc. There's a time-honored Democratic Party saying that "When the going gets tough, the tough threaten defenseless little old people." Anything within their reach can and will be used as a weapon against the people to further their agenda - and is anything out of reach of the DC gangsters these days?

The Obamacare website launch proved to be a $634M, glitch-filled, impossible to navigate, security-hole-ridden, abomination. Any decent web development company could have created a rock-solid, user-friendly, secure site in a few months for one hundredth the cost. But that's what you get when you leave unaccountable bureaucrats with an agenda and an endless supply of other people's money, in charge. And we're going to turn over 1/6th of the economy, our most sensitive personal information and our very lives to these people - God help us! Obamacare: so good, that the unions demanded and got waivers from it. Obamacare: die happy.

And as for that "it's the law of the land" crap? At one time, so was slavery - that doesn't mean you have to accept it. And while we're playing that game, the Second Amendment is the law of the land. So shut up Liberals & stop having tantrums over it!

Lastly, having solved all other problems facing the nation and the world, the Man of the People turns his attention to the root cause of America's ills. BO has decided that the Washington Redskins should change their name. I'm voting for the The Barrycaders. Perhaps he should stick to what he does best - screwing up the country & the world - and leave football alone!

"Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit." BO - March 2006
"We have today a system where leaders are not only not punished for their failures, but are actually rewarded...It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong." - Thomas Sowell

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.

Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".

- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)


"It does not take a majority to prevail - but an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

-- Samuel Adams

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

-- Ronald Reagan

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened".

-- Norman Thomas
Socialist Candidate for President of the United States 1944
