Please enjoy these recent blasts from Facebook. Or, get mad. I was mad composing half of them.

In a very short time, Obamacare is responsible for screwing more people than Bernie Madoff and Heidi Fleiss combined.

Obama is repealing his law one small retreat at a time, and replacing it with ad hoc "suggestions" to insurance companies.

Banana republic stuff. Merry Christmas and uncertain New Year.

Weary of people citing hypocrisy as an excuse to attack public standards. If you find a congressman who embezzles, it's a problem with the congressman, not with the laws against embezzlement he voted for.

Immigration "reform"?

Yeah. His policies haven't created enough unemployed here at home. Why shouldn't we throw open the border to import even more unemployed from the south?

Selfishness is bad. Should government ban selfishness?
Gluttony is bad. Should government ban gluttony?
Hate is bad. Should government ban hate?
Drugs are bad. Should government ban drugs?

Liberals think government can blanket people's dealings and transactions with a cocoon of mandatory good intentions and enlightened redirection, and people will still transact and produce as much as before.

But, our current funk, stagnation, and spiral into dependency show the opposite. As Margaret Thatcher said, "The facts of life are conservative." Government can't choreograph and puppet master the ways people work, trade, and produce, and then expect they'll keep doing it as much or as successfully.


Sadly, liberals won't let real life interrupt their ambitious fantasies.

NSA spying on all our calls, texts and emails is essential to protect the nation? Yeah, right. It's reported the NSA can't identify a single terror plot it foiled with the spying.

So, Americans live in a perpetual state of cyber strip search in the hope it might do some good some time.
America, we are better than this. Or we should be.

Unrelated to the merits of same-sex marriage, but important to say to all the civics-deficients who are chanting "UTAH, UTAH, UTAH!" Utah didn't do a blooming thing.

A willful judge made up new law. Whether same-sex marriage is the right result or not, this is the wrong way to get there.
