We call it domestic violence

Unconstitutional arrogance

I'm ambivalent about the Defense of Marriage Act, but I can't understand how the president can thwart the will of Congress by instructing the Justice Dept. to not enforce a law passed by Congress.

The fact that Eric Holder would accept such an order calls his understanding of the Constitution into serious question.

Does this mean that Congress is now irrelevant? Where is the Constitutional basis for this?

Every time Obama does an end run around Congress, he seems to get bolder. Sooner or later, there’s going to be a showdown over this arrogance.

Scrubbed from the U of W web site

The University of Wisconsin has yanked these three doctors from their web site in the wake of last week’s handing out of fraudulent doctors’ work excuses to state-employed workers protesting Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair effort.

George Will gets it right. Again.

A few days after Obama submitted a budget that would increase the federal deficit, he tried to sabotage Wisconsin's progress toward solvency. The Washington Post: "The president's political machine worked in close coordination . . . with state and national union officials to mobilize thousands of protesters to gather in Madison and to plan similar demonstrations in other state capitals."

Public relations suicide

Organized labor, especially unions representing government workers, are committing public relations suicide.

As this and many other videos vividly illustrate, these people are embracing the leftist belief that the end justifies the means and that no lie or dirty trick is too extreme to get what they want.

Whether it’s handing out fake medical excuses for demonstrators or Democrat Wisconsin state senators fleeing the state to avoid voting or trying to damage the sound system for a Tea Party counter-rally, they make a mockery of their claim to the moral high ground.

So sure of themselves and their power are the union bosses and thugs that they think they can bully and intimidate governors and legislators into giving them the kind of preferential treatment they’re used to getting at the hands of Democrat politicians.

And it’s precisely this overplaying of their hand that will be their undoing. They’re already outnumbered by the Tea Party folks and their ham-fisted tactics are turning the rest of the country against them, including many from within their own union ranks.

It should be noted that the union agitators, including several from out of state, who tried to hold Wisconsin government hostage last week, were far outnumbered by the thousands of teachers, police, fire fighters and other government workers who stayed on the job and refused to participate in the public tantrum.

Barring any unforeseen developments, I think we’re watching organized labor destroy itself.

Americans, in increasing numbers, are taking a stand with the union members who recognize they have an obligation to help rein in government spending and are willing to be part of the solution.

Sounds familiar

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Pass it on

“If Obama thinks a leader should step down simply because large crowds of people protest in the streets of the capitol for a week or so, I’ve got an idea.”  -Darrin Moore

The Fence

fenceIf you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test.

If a Conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn’t buy one. 
If a Liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed. 

If a Conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat. 
If a Liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone. 

If a Conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. 
If a Liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect. 

If a Conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. 
A Liberal wonders who is going to take care of him. 

If a Conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. 
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down. 

If a Conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. 
A Liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.                      
A Liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his. 

If a Conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. 
A Liberal will delete it because he's "offended."

Time to retire, Dick

If anybody could be considered part of the Washington establishment, it’s Sen. Richard G. Lugar (R-Ind.), who has been in the U.S. Senate since January, 1977. That’s a record for a senator from Indiana. It makes him the most senior Republican in the Senate and the third most senior senator.

Those of us who think there is little or no room to compromise on conservative principles think Lugar has become a RINO. He voted for the START treaty, the confirmation of liberal Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor and the confirmation of leftist loon Cass Sunstein as administrator of the office of Information and Regulatory Affairs of the Office of Management and Budget.

And he thinks the Tea Party should “get real.”

He’s about to find out just how real the Tea Party is.
