It’s my blog…

…and I’ll be conservative if I want to…

Yes, and now just a small, teeny tiny dose of politics.  I promised it when I started this, and so here it is. 

“Obama has this stupid idea for Big Oil to give everybody a check for $1000. Even the LA Times has it right: Nearly 50% of those profits reported by Big Oil are taxable. So whatever you read that they made, $11 billion or whatever, half already goes to the federal government.”  (Pearl of wisdom from Rush yesterday)

You know, I never have understood why some people nowadays seemingly HATE people who do well for themselves. “No one can make money anymore.” (David Borer)  You know, some farmers are doing well these days.  Grain prices are fantastic (although input costs are incredibly high as well.)  I’m beginning to wonder when people will start talking about BIG CORN?  Perhaps all those damn farmers (who are finally perhaps seeing some greater income for all their years of hard work) should share those profits with everyone else? 

Don’t laugh.  This little idea, sometimes called “income redistribution” is a favorite of many liberal Democrat politicians.  I know, I know!  It sounds an awfully lot like Socialism, yes.  What’s that, you say?  Oh yes, socialism is something that has never, and will never work!  It has been proved unsuccessful countless times throughout history!  It is one of the highest forms of human enslavement and tyranny!  And our great country was founded precisely to get away from such tyrrany, and the democracy that resulted is perhaps one of the greatest success stories ever.  But some people apparently do not care, and would rather throw it all away for an unachievable ideal.  How sad. 

Thomas Jefferson once said, “To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.”  

But, really, take a look at today’s quote.  And if you want a 100% dead-on economic analysis of Obama, go to PatriotPost.US and read today’s article by Mark Alexander.  It’s mind-blowing, and it’s well worth your time.     

Okay, it’s over.  You can exhale.  That wasn’t so bad, was it?  When I start blogging about politics, feel free to do what I do when David starts talking about grain marketing to me:  let your eyes glaze over and let your mind wander to some far-away, happy place.  

It is Saturday!  This actually doesn’t mean a whole lot to us stay-at-home moms, where every day is Saturday (or Monday, depending upon the nap situation.)  But for those in the work-world, hooray!  Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.  Stay cool, it’s going to be a scorcher.

  1. …and you forgot to mention…he voted against a bill in the Illinois legislature, to treat a baby born alive after an intended abortion…he would have it killed, as was the intent. Another topic, another time…incredibly evil, if you ask me.

  2. Amen! I just wish we had a better Republican choice. I suppose voting for the liberal conservative is better than the liberal liberal, but it’s hard to suppress the urge to do a write-in vote for Ron Paul. As it is, I think the Republicans are just taking us to hell at 55 mph rather than 85.
