Dear Readers: Today’s title comes from one of the worst movies I have ever seen, but seems apt in light of a quote from Bob Turner, winner of NY-09’s special congressional election last night: We have lit one candle today. It’s going to be a bonfire pretty soon.
As Tammy Bruce would say — blame the JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS.
…First Lady Michelle Obama apparently showing extreme disrespect to the American flag at a ceremony in honor of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say, “all this just for a flag.” She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.
Left Coast Rebel is tracking the NY-09 victory and what it means for the 2012 election. While it is exciting to have California go from a slightly more pale shade of blue, I am hoping that we keep Team Obama distracted along the coast so there are larger margins of victory (to cover the Chicago-style fraud) in the other 57 states. Anna’s Clue Tank has a wonderful graphic in line with this news!
Perhaps someone should report all of this to Obama. Apparently, his team has started-up another big-brother-report site, AttackWatch.com, that is being treated with the same amount of respect as the previous versions of this inanity have been (hat-tip, B-Daddy).
Back to California and San Diego: Shane Atwell had a marvelous comment about last week’s big blackout that I had to share: Every time there’s an outbreak of salmonella or even speculation of some minor crisis in an unregulated market, the statists come out of the woodwork to discuss ‘market failure’ and the need for more regulations. But when a heavily regulated industry fails–an industry who’s regulations were supposed to make it cheaper, more efficient and safer–those statists are silent.. Read the full piece; it is excellent.
While New York seems to be sending a good message, California’s Assembly was busy at work servicing themselves: The California Legislature’s last-minute bill binge upended the state. The battle in the Legislature wasn’t just about improving California’s financial stability. It was about establishing Democratic dominance and control over nearly every aspect of Californians’ lives. The way this dominance was accomplished was using massive redistribution tactics. More information, which as another must-read, is HERE!
Concluding with the “Bonfire of the Vanities”: Bruce Willis was the best thing about that film. Turning now to a favorite scene from a far better movie, here is a clip you can report to AttackWatch.com!
