Brain Tumor

Senator Ted Kennedy has a brain tumor. A vary bad one and the prognosis is not very good.

I wish him and his family peace as they cope with this horrible situation.

Sick of the campaign

Sick that is of the election already. I am sick of the constant talk of the campaign. I am sick of seeing shots of Barack Obama eating pancakes, Hillary doing boilermakers, and John McCain sitting in front of a rows of American Flags.

None of them are fit to be President in my opinion. John McCain is probably the least offensive of them.

I am most sick of people treating Mr. Obama like he is the chosen one, giving him preferential treatment. I am sick of him pandering to voters on things such as guns; talking about a love of the 2nd amendment to voters in Indiana, and bashing it in Philly.

All three of them are what is wrong in America now. America is in danger of losing it's way. Not because of Americans not willing to work or to innovate, but of the government getting in the way.

We have one of the highest corporate tax rates in the free world. Politicians talk about the need for our economy to righten, but bash companies when they make money.

Government regulations and stupidity have gotten in the way of allowing this country to be great. We rose from a small band of 13 colonies to the dominant world superpower in a short 150 years or so. This was done because there was limited government and freedom.

Each candidate talks about things such as federalism, free market capitalism, and liberty but do things that are diametrically opposed to such measures.

The quote at the top of my blog says it well. We would be wise to heed the words of Thomas Jefferson on liberty and limited government.

Bill O'Reilly Lost it?

You probably saw the video where Bill O'Reilly in his days of Inside Edition lost it and went crazy.

Well now, as Paul Harvey would say, is the rest of the story

Congrats to the Flyers for getting to the Eastern Finals. They should take on the Penguins unless there is a total collapse by Crosby and the gang.

Bad Omens

In a pretty clear omen, the horse that Hillary Clinton picked to win the Kentucky Derby not only lost, but broke both her ankles and had to be immediately put down.

Undermine the law, indeed

A pipe collector's convention is leaving Chicago next year because they are not allowed to smoke.

From the Chicago Tribune

Sitting in a tent more than 15 feet away from a St. Charles convention center Friday, Al Shinogle lit up his hand-carved Danish pipe and explained why there was so much frustration at this year's Chicagoland International Pipe & Tobacciana Show—the largest pipe collector's gathering in the country.

"How would you like it if you went to a wine tasting and you couldn't taste the wine?" asked the 53-year-old Denver resident. "It's a freedom issue."

On Thursday, pipe aficionados learned that their attempts to allow smoking inside the Pheasant Run convention center, where some 4,000 were expected to linger over tables laid out with aromatic tobacco and intricately carved briar pipes Saturday and Sunday, had gone up in smoke.

The quote of the day comes from anti-freedom government official

"This is the first time we've seen such a blatant attempt . . . to actually undermine the law through legal sophistry," said Mike Grady, the American Cancer Society's Illinois director of public policy. "We're very happy with the outcome. This is the perfect example that the law is being enforced."

I like how when people try to exercise their Constitutional rights to freely associate and assemble it is "circumventing" law. But when these fascists pass laws that directly do circumvent the United States Constitution that is all right.
