A tale of two first ladies:

The Washington Post reports rather cheekily that Ann LePage, the wife of the Republican governor of Maine, has used family connections to secure a job.  She is waiting tables during Maine’s tourist-rich summer on the coast at an establishment where her daughter previously worked!  Her husband’s salary is only $70,000, the lowest of any state chief executive in the country.  Maine’s first lady is hoping to buy a car.

Quite a contrast to another first lady some time back, whose governor husband’s salary in Arkansas was also low by national standards.  First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Clinton invested $1,000 in cattle futures, which turned into $6,300 overnight and nearly $100K over ten months.

Liberal Logic: Free press applies only to quill pens and hand presses!

Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman, Democrat from New Jersey, claims that the Second Amendment applies only to muskets, and as such, citizens don’t have the right to own various and sundry other weapons.  That delusion is based on her understanding that the Framers were specifically addressing only muskets.
Of course, that would also mean that the First Amendment’s freedom of speech does not apply to radio, television, recordings, electronic media of any type, and anything other than speaking or shouting with or without an eighteenth-century bullhorn.

Hillary Clinton prioritizes outlawing criticism of Hillary Clinton

Orlando, Dallas, Nice, terrorism, dangerous levels of deficit, lowest workforce participation in decades as millions give up even trying to find work, Putin auditioning for Tsar Vlad the Terrible, the bonds that hold a civil society together coming apart at an accelerating rate...and Hillary Clinton announces her intent to seek to alter the Constitution within a month of being sworn in as president.  For what grand purpose would that prioritization be?

Due Process in the Age of Obama's IRS

...if citizens are prevented from exercising a constitutional right, whether by legislation or, as often the case with this president, executive fiat, by having their names placed on a secret government list, is it remotely unreasonable to expect that political motivations (and to the left, politics motivates everything!) will result in various conservatives and libertarians being placed on that list?

What Does 'Getting Weapons of War Off Our Streets' Really Mean?

Repeating words spoken by President Obama two years ago, Hillary Clinton stated, "I believe weapons of war have no place on our streets," referencing the AR-15 and presumably other semi-automatic rifles labeled "assault weapons" by Democrats.  The court media is also doing its part, expressing the sentiment word for word.

Under the Protection of Our Flag

President Reagan was fond of telling the story of Captain Duncan Ingraham, U.S. Navy, and did so in remarks to the crew on board the USS Constellation on August 20, 1981.

After a failed attempt in 1848-1849 to free Hungary from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, one of the Hungarian leaders, named Martin Koszta, emigrated to the United States.  In doing so, Koszta made a sworn declaration of his intent to become an American citizen, and renounced any allegiance to any foreign power.  He started an import business, and nearly two years after taking that oath, while in Turkey on private business, he was recognized and seized by agents of the Empire and imprisoned in chains on an Austrian brig-of-war in Smyrna Harbor.  Koszta faced a sentence of death by hanging.

Instant Classic: Joe Biden on Jon Corzine

This has to be seen and heard to be believed: Biden's glowing testimony to Corzine's influence on Obama's stimulus policy in 2009 and much else!

Joe Biden on how the Obama Administration called Jon Corzine for economic advice!

Since those heady days of hope and change, Corzine ran MF Global (he was CEO) into bankruptcy, misplacing about $600 million along the way.

Gingrich Gives Pelley the Smackdown

CBS' debate moderator Scott Pelley all but asked for this smackdown, most especially by the smug look on his face as he interjects his own opinion into a Presidential debate. Gingrich is short and sweet in devastating a typical liberal platitude held by so many of the 'smart' people, those too wonderful to actually think through their opinions. Gingrich's answer would be immediately agreed to by Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, FDR, Truman, JFK and Reagan.

Gaddafi and Offending Muslim Sensibilities

The SEALs take out Osama Bin Laden, a self avowed Muslim. His body is treated respectfully by our military. It is washed and wrapped for a Muslim burial, complete with prayers and this is accomplished within twenty-four hours of his death, as prescribed by Islam.

Gaddafi, also a Muslim, is beaten, sodomized and eventually executed by Muslims several days ago in a Muslim country. His body is kept in a meat locker, during which time it is repeatedly put on public display. On the same day that the new Lybian leadership announces that the new government and its laws will be Sharia based, it is also announced that Gaddafi may be buried tomorrow in an undisclosed location, nearly a week after his death.

The Telegraph:

Muslim clerics said on Monday that Osama bin Laden's burial at sea was a violation of Islamic tradition that may further provoke militant calls for revenge attacks against American targets.

In India, a host of Muslim scholars, clerics and citizens declared that the bodies of the terrorists responsible for the slaughter in Mumbai should not receive respectful Muslim treatment, whether burial in under twenty four hours or in a Muslim cemetery.

Just maybe the U.S. is a bit overly sensitive to what it presumes is Muslim sensitivities, whether because of political correctness, creeping dhimmitude or both!
