Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of why theNSA’s Surveillance State plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. “We live in a time and in a country which finds principled dissent of the sort exercised by Eugene V. Debs and Abner Beech almost incomprehensible. In one sense, freedom of expression knows no bounds: Internet pornography, snuff-game videos, libelous tweets—laissez faire, man. But with respect to politics, art, culture… seldom in American history have the limits of permissible speech been so narrow, so constricting.” – Bill Kaufmann, responding to neo-abolitionist critics of the film Copperheads
DeceptiCONNED – GOP chooses the Surveillance State over the Constitution and the American Sheople by rejecting the Amash Amendment that would have severely curtailed the “agencies” blanket data gathering. The CONS chose the corruption that goes with the health of the SpyFare state over civil liberties
Guess what!? (chicken butt) The ObamaCare monster is turning out to actually be pretty GOOD for those nasty insurance companies that premium/pre existing condition warrior Obama met on the field of battle and slew
Memo to my pal Bill Kaufmann: Take what you have written to your critics, print it out (WITH, o yes WITH those ever so pious comments) and time capsule it for 2033. YOU will be reading a POV that has come to pass while majority of the commenters will either be groveling to shine your snakeskins or whining about the new kids with the pumped up vocabulary and free speech
No Mojo City: Detroit bankruptcy is to be handled in a federal manner (as the Constitution provides for) and the labor unions that will HAVE to take pay cuts/pension cuts are already howling their disapprobation. Translation, this could actually be GOOD for the city’s finances.
“If you build it, the bankruptcy judges will come.” The number of mega stadiums in the United States defies any economic justification for them yet they just keep popping up as though the Billion in public $$ needed to build them is but paper mo… oh wait, it IS paper money.
Incorporationistas rejoice, a verdict to die for! ANOTHER federal judge, having no jurisdiction in the health affairs of the citizens of Alabama, has delayed implementation of that state’s new abortion code that requires doctors to have privileges at nearby hospitals before they can perform the dark art of baby killing. When will Congress strike these federal judges down!?
The Libertarian, populist approach is winning out over the DeceptiCON approach in some GOP circles and that is because it actually offers an alternative to what the libs AND what the fake conservatives offer
The Beautiful Things: Sometimes they are provided by the occasionally foul-mouthed The Onion and this one is a must read for any [r]epublican. Matter of fact, send this to your estranged ladder climbing sister who just made CIO of some company you cannot name but are sure is responsible for chemical leak deaths in Bhopal
The war hawks just keep beating the drum and applying the face paint for Syria but the case to intervene/invade yet another Middle Eastern country is non-existent. Unless of course you think Syrian Christians are due their dose of American Exceptionalism, delivered by Jihadis wielding American made and paid for weapons.
One of the economic rules that you cannot defy is this: If you SUBSIDIZE something you will get more of it. So when the Senate does the end-zone dance after passing a bill to subsidize at nearly zero interest, student loans, you will get more young people going to schools they don’t need to attend, delaying their productive years and insuring their future years are debt addled. this is a victory!?
