By Any Means Necessary : The Other McCain

The important thing to understand about the Democrat Party is that they have no moral or philosophical principles of any kind.

And that distinguishes them from the Republicans…how, again?

Only 27 Republicans vote to keep Democrats from confirming anti-Semite Hagel | protein wisdom

Now, I know many conservatives and non-Ron Paul libertarians are upset with Senator Rand Paul’s affirmative vote, but frankly, that vote doesn’t bother me:  Paul voted to keep the nomination from coming up for a vote he knew from the numbers was a done deal if the filibuster option was defeated, and once the Republicans lost that vote — thanks to the McCainian axis of Mavericky Squish, which to his shame included Orin Hatch — Paul decided to show “deference” to the President in a way that, while I don’t agree with it, I can nevertheless understand politically.

Well, as for me, I’m pretty tired of show votes done for “political” reasons. How about casting your votes for principled reasons?

The Captain’s Journal » Foreign Policy Insane Clown Posse

Together with Kerry, Obama has his insane clown posse, and they will do his bidding for an insane clown foreign policy.

I’m glad that my son is out of the Marine Corps.  The battle is now for the homeland.

And that man of bedrock liberty-minded conservative principles, Rand Paul, voted with the Insane Clown Posse.

Wm. Hazlitt – “On The Pleasure Of Hating” (c.1826).

Instead of patriots and friends of freedom, I see nothing but the tyrant and the slave, the people linked
with kings to rivet on the chains of despotism and superstition. I see folly join with knavery,
and together make up public spirit and public opinions. I see the insolent Tory, the blind
Reformer, the coward Whig! If mankind had wished for what is right, they might have had
it long ago.

Apparently my disenchantment with the security-minded serfs-in-waiting is nothing new.

The DiploMad 2.0

Obama is playing a stupid and dangerous poker with our nation’s security, one that could cost American lives. He is playing typical urban Mayor vs. City Council politics: “Councilman, if you don’t give me what I want, then I am shutting down the police and fire stations in your district.” Obama, once again, has revealed himself as a mean little man with no appreciation for the role of his country in the world. He would rather put our national interests at stake than save money by not flying off on the taxpayers’ money to play golf.

It is somewhat refreshing to see a “liberal icon” take note of the “madness” of King Barack I. How long before Woodward gets trashed by the liberal Mau-Mau machine and has to eat his words? We’ll see.

Unfortunately, even in his announcement that he’d been threatened by the White House, Woodward stated his belief that Obama didn’t know about it.  So don’t expect him to turn into an anti-Obama conservative paladin any time soon.

Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

Leaving aside, of course, that neither of these two mini-me bozotards are fit to wash Woodward’s car – or his toes with their tongues.  And I really don’t like Bob Woodward very much at all.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Funny thing about Mamet. I used to hang with him in the mid 70s due to an accident of fate. I was the “Phantom of the Opera” at St. Nicholas Theater. Watched “American Buffalo” from a hidey hole in the theater along with the first mate (there is no second). We were all lefties then.

    I wized up about a decade or three before he did.

  2. I’m beginning to think Rand Paul’s vote to give Obama his choice was maybe because he wants the same leeway when he’s president, and because he believes Hagel will be an embarrassment of the first order. Confirmation was was assured so he didn’t have to vote that way, but his explanation sounded like he was giving Bambi enough rope to hang himself. Yes, he put his principles in his back pocket on this, but the dictum never interrupt the enemy making a mistake has something to commend it.
