  1. Say No to socialism.
    First they will nationalize the banks.
    Then they will ration goods and set price controls.
    then they will tell businesses who they can hire based on their nationanality.
    Oops, they already did that. I guess that was the first step to socialism and the so-called conservatives were the first ones to push this nativist reactionary stupidity.

    Some crazy guy named Ronald Reagan said –
    “…And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That’s how I saw it, and see it still.

    …We’ve got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom–freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It’s fragile; it needs protection.

    …But more than that: After 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge, and her glow has held steady no matter what storm. And she’s still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home.”
    – UNLESS you are Mexican! (Russell Pearce version)

    The Republican party needs to say NO to socialism and return to its treasured values of freedom and capitalism.

  2. Great post Ronald.

    Uh…you mean the kind so socialism your party profered for the past 8 years??? GWB was the one that rammed through the big bailout of banks my friends and in all out national defense/war/military industrial establishment…did hardly less that the Soviets did with their tax dough.

  4. “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion…”
    Even more powerful than R. R.

    12, 20, 30 million. It’s an unlawful invasion no matter how you cut it. The federal govt. isn’t performing on one of the few powers with which they were entrusted.

    From CNN:

    While Democrats appeared to believe they had enough Republican support to push the compromise plan through, most GOP members still were speaking against the plan, saying spending is not the answer to cure economic woes.

    “This is not bipartisan,” said Sen. John McCain, who lost the 2008 election to Obama. “If this legislation is passed, it’ll be a very bad day for America.”

    –make sure you call and support McCain in his decision!

    There is no doubt that there is plenty of ‘blame’ to go around. But what is the point? Just to say something so you can continue to get attention? We have HUGE problems that are piling up even faster. We seem to have a bunch of leaders who think that you can clean up a tsunami with water and suds. That is to say that socialism is the train we have arrived on to get us to this moment in history. Now we are stoking up the engine to get us to the end of the line even faster. What a joy ride.

    It is time to do more than have 9 states threaten to somewhat secede and 11 others to be thinking about thinking about it.

    Protest that works requires getting their attention, like stop getting taxes deducted from paychecks and not filing tax returns and not renewing licenses. (Any of the dozen or so required to do any damn thing.)

    And for heaven’s sake if your little business belongs to the Chamber of Commerce, ask for your money back.

    Obama has no shame, no brakes, no humble. As you can see, when crossed, the dictator in him comes out in spades. It will not get better anytime soon.

  7. Whether it’s GOP Boomer Gal flying the flag upside down or Iris adovcating sedition, its rapidly becoming clear that the conservative movement would rather destroy America than ever accept a viewpoint that is not their own.

  8. Iris Lynch says

    Actually the tenth amendment is a part of the Constitution. It is a guarantee against unfettered Federalism, more commonly known as socialism. The Founding Fathers had experienced a break with the Mother country and wrote eloquently on that necessity and the very real possibility of history repeating itself, as it seems to periodically. America IS being destroyed. There is still a chance it can be saved and if it comes to saving just a part, I’ll be willing.

    Now, surely no one thinks I had anything to do with those states threatening to secede. BTW, Arizona is one of them.

  9. However you want to justify treason, Iris. Try it, and conservatism will be crushed and humiliated as the South was. It’s 143 years since the Civil War, and we’re still waiting for the South to rise again.

    I wonder if Rush Limbaugh would be caught wearing women’s clothes while trying to flee the consequences just like the coward Jefferson Davis was after the inevitable defeat?

  10. I was following the arguments of the ratio of government spending (2/3rds) to tax cuts (1/3rd) but admit that I wasn’t paying attention to the socialism issue.

    Which elements of the stimulus bill, specifically, implement a European style socialism in America?

  11. Iris Lynch says

    Specifically, the 2/3rds of that ‘stimulus’ that buys the votes of the ‘enslaved by handouts’ folks who will vote forever to continue to get the pork, who may be doomed some day to drown in a flood because they never learned to swim on their own.

  12. Folks, the pork bill is pretty much a done deal. However, next year it will come back to haunt Democrats in Congress up for election that year.

    A lot of Democrats in the House who will vote for the pork bill are terrified, so save your ammunition for the next series of left wing assaults on your liberty and property. Then lean on the Democrats (particularly in the House) real hard.

    Oh, and I hope someone will come up with a fund to get rid of the Pennsylvania slimebag. He’s up for election next year and should be eliminated in the primary.

  13. “”This is America,” the president said last week. “We don’t disparage wealth.” True enough. But the contemporary business culture has distorted the spirit of traditional American capitalism — ill at ease with unearned wealth — by rewarding mediocrity and even failure.

    As a society, we have bought into a system in which we ask little of corporate leaders beyond the aggressive pursuit of short-term self-interest. For two decades, this model has formed the core paradigm taught to our business-school students. “Shareholder value” was of utmost importance. Notions of obligation to the society in which the corporation is embedded have been set aside, even mocked.

    Mr. Grayson,

    Excellent post.

  15. Iris Lynch wrote, “Obama has no shame, no brakes, no humble.”

    Iris, I understand that you, like most Republicans, are among the less educated Americans — that’s why your party enrollment numbers dwindle as more people become more educated — but “humble” is an adjective, not a noun like “shame” or “brakes.” You mean “no humility.”

    Of course, you are not only ignorant about usage and grammar but your judgment is faulty. Last week the President went on three networks to say that he “screwed up” and took responsibility for the failure of his transition to vet the nominees properly.

    Most reasonable commentators took this as a refreshing sign of humility after a President Bush who never admitted that he had been wrong when he clearly had “screwed up” a great deal.

    I’m glad to help you out with this, Iris. No thanks are necessary.

  16. Steve Calabrese says

    Richard Grayson, I find your comment:

    “…I understand that you, like most Republicans, are among the less educated Americans”

    somewhat distressing.

    Yeah, Iris made some typos and grammatical mistakes. Still, such a broad generalization of “most Republicans” as being uneducated shows a degree of arrogance and short-sightedness that serves no purpose other than to inflame emotions.

    Quite frankly, there are stupid Republicans out there, and stupid Democrats. For every idiot Republican it is possible to trot out an equally moronic Democrat.

    I am certainly no supporter of Barack Obama. I worry about the policies he will push, and feel that he has a poorly defined idea of exactly what the purpose of government is. I fear that he is preying on fear, uncertainty and doubt in order to pass a gigantic “stimulus” package that no one truly understands. And yet, I can recognize that he is trying to elevate the level of civil discourse in this country. I don’t know if it’s an act or not for the camera, but I am willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt and believe that he truly wants more intelligent discussion of the issues in this country.

    Your comments on a conservative board trumpeting your belief that Democratic party principles are superior because some concerned person doesn’t have the best writing skills in the world reflect poorly on both yourself and the Democratic party, of which I presume you are a member. As a Barack Obama supporter, you should ask yourself what he would think of the tone of your message to Iris. Next time you decide to attempt to demonstrate your “superiority” on a political discussion board, I would ask you to remember the words of Robert F. Kennedy:

    “The task of leadership, the first task of concerned people, is not to condemn, castigate and deplore; it is seek out the reason for disillusionment and and alienation, the rationale for protest and dissent – perhaps, indeed, to learn from it.”

    There’s a lot of scared and pissed-off conservatives out there right now. I’m one of them. We have back-to-back Presidnets – Bush and Obama – who have done their best Chicken Little imitations and have basically given the keys to the treasury to giant corporations. You don’t have to agree with us, but if you’re going to post, you may as well be civil and maybe you’ll actually learn something.

    -Steve
