That the Dictator in Chief was going to “bring the troops home” (we see how that’s worked out), my friends from the “Civil Liberties” department tried to tell me that the D.I.C would be fantastic on these basic Constitutional Rights.
Well, what say you now…Obama Supports DNA Sampling Upon Arrest
“We have 18 states who are taking DNA upon arrest,” Walsh said. “It’s no different than fingerprinting or a booking photo. … Since those states have been doing it, it has cleared 200 people that are innocent from jail.”
“It’s the right thing to do,” Obama replied. “This is where the national registry becomes so important, because what you have is individual states — they may have a database, but if they’re not sharing it with the state next door, you’ve got a guy from Illinois driving over into Indiana, and they’re not talking to each other.
How can anyone who reads the 4th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution tell me this is a good idea? Seriously folks. It’s bad enough the Almighty (Praise be to it) Government issues a S.S. number at my birth, but to have my DNA is a whole lot scarier.
Take for instances, if you got a extortion/speeding ticket and forgot to pay it. A warrant is issued for your arrest. You find yourself pulled over and put in handcuffs.You’re going to tell me that some Government enforcer is going to “swab” me because I didn’t pay them on time? Yeah, that’s not going to fly.
I’m sure some Red State Chest Thumper’s will be just fine with this because of some nonsensical view that it’s for “National Security” and more than likely some Blue State Whack-a-do’s, but myself, an Individual, will fight tooth and nail this gross intervention into my privacy.

“Ron, you are one of the most fun and laid back guys to be around, but when we bring up the Government you turn into a whole different person. Why is that?” I always respond with “Because the Government (No distinction between Republican or Democrat in my eyes) is always trying to steal from me or regulate something in my life. From the size of my toilet, to the Anti-Smoking Nazi’s, to people who believe it’s for the children, and of course the Food Nazi’s”
And speaking of the Food Nazi’s, it seems that a group of Pediatricians want to redesign the all American classic, the Hot Dog. For what reason you ask? Because, wait for it…It’s for the children
From the article..”We know what shape, sizes and consistencies pose the greatest risk for choking in children and whenever possible food manufacturers should design foods to avoid those characteristics, or redesign existing foods when possible, to change those characteristics to reduce the choking risk,” said Dr. Gary Smith, immediate-past chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Committee on Injury, Violence and Poison Prevention and lead author of the organization’s new policy statement on preventing choking.
Now, who doesn’t want children choking on hot dogs? This is why man created forks and knives to cut food that would not choke you to death. Do children die from choking on foods? Yes. And as parents they take ever precaution they can to prevent this. Parents, is the key word here.
And whose ear does this group of Pediatricians have? The Almighty F.D.A.
“The FDA is concerned about the deaths and serious injuries caused by choking,” said agency spokeswoman Rita Chappelle. “We will also continue to consult with the Consumer Product Safety Commission on assessing choking hazards associated with food and take action against food products that are ‘unfit for food’ on a case-by-case basis.“
There you have it friends. Your Government wants (and will) to regulate the size of your hot dogs. So, my friends who ask me why I turn into a different person when it comes to speaking about the Government, this is why.
Who want’s to start the “Hot Dog Black Market” with me?

Nope, I’m not kidding. It seems Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina wants to replace President Grant’s mug with Ronald Wilson Reagan’s.
From the congressmen’s webpage..“Every generation needs its own heroes,” said Congressman McHenry. “One decade into the 21st century, it’s time to honor the last great president of the 20th and give President Reagan a place beside Presidents Roosevelt and Kennedy.”
“President Reagan was a modern day statesman, whose presidency transformed our nation’s political and economic thinking,” McHenry continued. “Through both his domestic and international policies he renewed America’s self confidence, defeated the Soviets and taught us that each generation must provide opportunity for the next.”
Listen my Republican friends, I get your admiration for President Reagan. I loved his rhetoric and he did give some tremendous speeches. But this idolatry is as insane as a school renaming itself after President Obama. This it the type of stuff we point to the Left on when they worship one of their idols. Hello “Obama Messiah”.
With all of the nonsense the Government has/is creating, to bring this kind of bill up is moronic. I get the whole scoring political points from your base, but if you really want to honor Ronald Reagan, start acting and voting like his rhetoric

Over at the best magazines’ blog Daniel McCarthy asked’s if John Hostettler’s antiwar streak could resonate beyond the GOP base? And my question to that is, is it even an issue anymore to the general public?
With the election of President Obama making the antiwar movement impotent on the left side, I don’t even think it’s on people’s mind anymore. Sure Republicans will chest beat themselves over who’s tougher on the “War on Terror” but President Obama has pretty much done the same thing George W. Bush did. But the antiwar left has gone all but silent. So I don’t think the issue will even be made during the campaign. Would be shocked if it was.
To me the “establishment” antiwar movement of the past 8-9 years was all about the Democrats winning. As we have seen with the election of Obama and a majority Democrat congress. Much like the Tea Party movement really is all about getting Republicans back in power. Nothing “antiwar” about these folks, much like there’s nothing “limited government” about the Tea Party folks.
As for John Hostettler, it will be nice to see someone with a real deal Limited Government record get into the Senate. Imagine that, Sen.Rand Paul and Sen.John Hostettler. Nice ring to that.
Make sure you read this piece on John Hostettler by James Antle III.

Some on the left are pointing to this Op-ed from former Bush speech writer Michael Gerson as proof that the “Right” side of the aisle has gone bye-bye. The reason? They point to a section in the column that states…
All those few, however, seemed to be in attendance at CPAC, determined to sharpen an ideological debate. In the name of constitutional purity, they propose a great undoing. Not just the undoing of Obamaism. Undo Medicare and Social Security. Undo the expansive American global commitments that proceeded from World War II and the Cold War. Undo progressive-era economic regulations. Undo the executive power grab that preserved the union. Undo it all -- until America is left with a government appropriate to an isolated, 18th-century farming republic
To my friends on the left, allow me to say, that the majority (98%) of people who refer to themselves as either a “Conservative” or a “Tea Party Patriot” do not want any of that to happen. In fact, more than likely they want to preserve the Welfare/Warfare State we have. They don’t want it expanded, they just want it left alone. Sure you have a few spouting off at the mouth about this program or that program, but when it comes down to it, they will all fall in line with the Republican. No matter what they believe. Case and point: Scott Brown.
I understand that the Left wants to point out the worst elements of the Right. The Right did this through the Bush Regime years, when pointing out the worst of the Left when they would protest the wars. Its politics, I get. But saying all of the attendees believe what Mr.Gerson is writing is a total joke. The only people believing what this column is saying are the Ron Paul folks. As much as I would love to see Dr.Paul become President of this great land, it will never happen.
So please, spare me the theatrics. Your Warfare/Welfare Empire isn’t going anywhere.

CNN has just released a poll stating that a “Majority think Government poses a threat to citizens’ rights”.
Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday say they think the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens. Forty-four percent of those polled disagree.
My first reaction to this poll is to be optimistic, to cheer and yell “it’s about time folks started seeing what the Government is doing!” With the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, Banks and Wall Street becoming one Big Government program and of course this coming health care nightmare. You would think people would be sharpening their pitchforks and making sure they had enough matches to light their torches. And from reading this poll it looks as if people are starting to do just that.
Then a few minutes later after reading this poll I become cynical. I start to think to myself ”If a Republican was in charge of the Government, would these same people be saying the same thing?” More than likely not. These same folks cheered on George W. Bush when he was wrecking the Constitution but are angry President Obama is doing the same thing. It’s like these folks have ADD.
“My Team is better than your Team“ Mentality that prevails in our political system. When in fact they are both on the same team.
In the mean time, I will be optimistic about these developments. There is no reason to doubt this poll. But I want to see CNN poll these same folks when, say if Mitt Romney or Sarah Palin or Tim Pawlenty becomes President.

That the Fox is guarding the henhouse, right Big Ben?
Goldman role in Greek crisis probed
The US central bank is looking into Goldman Sachs’s role in arranging contentious derivatives trades for Greece, which helped the country to massage its public finances, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, revealed on Thursday
“We are looking into a number of questions relating to Goldman Sachs and other companies and their derivatives arrangements with Greece,” Mr Bernanke said, apparently referring to Greek currency transactions structured by Goldman.
In other words Big Ben, nothing is going to come of Goldman Sachs’s role in helping Greece become a Third World Country. Just like nothing is going to come of their role in the Bank Bailout. We know why this is, because you, the Federal Reserve, and it’s buddies on Capital Hill don’t want the public to know that the disgusting bankers have been ripping the American people off for more years than some of them can count.
Same old, Same old, in the banksters paradise.
