The New House of Representatives In Ten Seconds

From Bob's Blog.

Ratigan & Rall Call For Violence To Increase Their Profits & To Dig Up A FDR To Lead A New America

All dumb and dumber jokes aside the level of ignorance displayed in the clip makes one wonder if they were trying to outdo each other. Ratigan, whose work covers an industry Rall despises, was clearly in sync with Rall as they ticked off their agreed upon script and talking points. Rall, who is a cartoonist, wants the world to know he loves America, but believes it has needed to be undone since agitators fired the first shots at Kent State. Rall thinks America needs a redo and he is happy to remake America in his vision which is pretty damned scary to anyone who values honesty and ethics let alone freedom.

Ratigan is really just a talking head trying to increase his bottom line. Not too bright, but probably pleasing to many dimwits who watch him. Rall is really a truly despicable elitist who doesn't have much to be elitist about and as most elitists, he's a hater. He hates America, but he loathes conservatives, voters and especially soldiers and the military.

Their duo act is apropos as voters just voted as they did to display disgust with the vision du jour that progressives see for America. Yes, it is about jobs, but voters realize that jobs will not appear with this vision of governance.

Ratigan and Rall deserve each other. America doesn't

At What Point Did America Allow Morons To Run Our Lives?

Really. When did we say go right ahead and take the power to micromanage our lives? More importantly, at what point did we allow mommyesque morons to tell us that we are out of line to protest this takeover of our lives?

New nutrition rules may be no party for students
The cake, cookies and candy at the school parties you might remember will become a no-no if the state approves new nutrition guidelines.

No soup for you! Mike targets salt sellers
Mayor Bloomberg's latest health campaign -- cutting salt intake -- has targeted soup as one of the big sodium offenders to be taken down with new city ads.

CALIFORNIA / Sex questions found not to violate parents' rights / Despite indecorum of parts of survey, court denies appeal
"Parents have a right to inform their children when and as they wish on the subject of sex," said Judge Stephen Reinhardt in the 3-0 ruling. "They have no constitutional right, however, to prevent a public school from providing its students with whatever information it wishes to provide, sexual or otherwise."

There is consistency here if you look at the weather in their world.
  •  Individuals do not have the right to make individual decisions.
  • Government has the power to force its will on the governed because elected officials do not do the actual rule making and enforcement of government power.
  • Government units are more important than societal, family and local units.
 In our world there are people making decisions for us that we have no right to refuse. I guess, to make our lives easier, we have acted like morons to allow this.
