In response to what is being called “an avalanche of proposed closures on federal lands” in the State of California, the San Benito County Board of Supervisors has voted to “reassert its jurisdiction on 25 miles of county roads in an area currently closed by the federal government,” giving the fast spreading rebellion of the states a new ally, county rights.
Irony gushed from the White House on Tuesday as the head of one empire praised the scorned, tortured and executed Victim of another at an “Easter Prayer Breakfast.” “Hypocrisy” doesn’t begin to describe this brazen performance from a corrupt, arrogant, and thieving liar — but after all, Barack Obama would not be where he is today had he not mastered such vices. Politics is dirty, and only the filthiest of criminals triumph at it.
The Obama Administration’s propaganda machine is running full blast but the poll numbers continue to spiral downward for President Obama, the Democrats, and their great socialist experiment. According to the latest CBS News Poll (conducted between March 29, 2010 and April 1, 2010) President Obama hit a record low 44 percent approval rating, down from 49 percent in March, 50 percent in January, and 68 percent last April.
Here's the question asked in my September 2000 column titled "It's Time To Part Company": "If one group of people prefers government control and management of people's lives and another prefers liberty and a desire to be left alone, should they be required to fight, antagonize one another, risk bloodshed and loss of life in order to impose their preferences or should they be able to peaceably part company and go their separate ways?"
Obama’s big promise is that the vast majority of the U.S. population can get tons of free stuff from the government and it won’t cost them a single dime. They can just force “the rich” to fork over their money to pay for it.
Different Americans have different and often intense preferences for all kinds of goods and services. Some of us have strong preferences for beer and distaste for wine while others have the opposite preference — strong preferences for wine and distaste for beer. Some of us hate three-piece suits and love blue jeans while others love three-piece suits and hate blue jeans. When's the last time you heard of beer drinkers in conflict with wine drinkers, or three-piece suit lovers in conflict with lovers of blue jeans? It seldom if ever happens because beer and blue jean lovers get what they want. Wine and three-piece suit lovers get what they want and they all can live in peace with one another.
For years government has been using declarations of eminent domain to seize private property and use it, supposedly, for the public good. It's a practice that has been abused, and is almost always controversial.
On March 21, 2010, a day that will live in infamy, our beloved Constitutional Republic came to an end. Its murder was committed by a small majority of socialist Democrats in the House of Representatives who have given us a new form of government: Federal Socialism. By that vote, the great legacy of freedom given us by our Founding Fathers was thrown on the trash heap. And the man most responsible for making this happen is the socialist would-be dictator in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama.
