Saving The World

Many times as I read an article I find a few sentences that capture the essence of the piece. In “Phrase-e-ology” I’ll post some thought followed by key phrases. As always I’ll have a link (in blue) to the original article.  Sadly I find that the better, truer, more honest articles are found in British or Canadian media outlets.  The tilt of America’s lame-stream media is well documented and so far in the tank for liberals it is essentially no longer a “free press” that we can count on for news and information.  The recent victory by Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker has been covered though the import has been marginalized by the left media.  The actions by Alabama have been ignored exempt for the British Press;

Three Faces of Barry

I am going to allege something that may shock you.  I have observed a national politician who may change his message based on the audience to which he is speaking.  Some, including me, would call this type of behavior two-faced.  If you read the title you probably have a guess to whom I am speaking…our President Obama.  Politicians have always done this and pretty much gotten away with it, but Mr. Obama has perhaps taken the “skill” to a new level and is in many cases “three-faced.”  Building on his most favored status in the lame-stream media and his Pied Piper-like hypnosis over his minions he seems unabashed and does not even attempt to hide this form of politics.  I guess if it keeps working he’ll keep doing it.

Mobs’ Rules (Democracy)

As a rational man it is hard to watch what has been going on in the Democrat Party without feeling pity for their plight. Don’t get me wrong I really hope their woes continue for the next several decades even though they need to win once in a while to keep the Republicans-In-Name-Only (“RINO”) in their place. But their recent level of disdain for the founding principles of our country is outrageous. Michelle Malkin wrote a great article on the hide-and-seek Democrats and offered this quote;

Sunny Side of the Street

As we limp through this arduous winter toward spring I look forward to warmer weather and sunshine. Something about shining light on stuff has a healing affect. Perhaps that is why laws requiring that government meetings and hearings are open to the public are referred to as “sunshine” laws. A common rule-of-thumb about personal behavior used to be for you to consider whether you would want your mother to read about your actions in the local paper. Today I guess it would translate on whether she would learn about your activities on FaceBook.

Update 2 – Liberal Alters – Unions

It’s been a whole day since I updated the Union Liberal Alter, but the events in Wisconsin scream for comment.  First off a little recent history.  In 2008/2009 we were repeatedly told that “elections have consequences” and that Democrats won and they could rule as they pleased.  It turns out that the electorate was not very pleased and in 2010 we had more of those election consequences only this time the Republicans swept.  The Republican sweep in the U.S. House was the primary focus of most news reports, but perhaps more importantly was the Republican sweep in the states.  The Republicans now have 29 governorships and have “more seats in the state legislatures than they have had since 1928” and they are itching for real change.
