Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

We’ve been steadily growing, to the point that for the past eight weeks we are easily averaging enough hits per week to get more than a million hits per year. By my calculation, to get a million hits in a year a blog needs 2,739 hits per day, 19,178 per week, and 83,333 per month to make the magic mark. We are averaging over 3,000 hits per day, over 20,000 per week for the past two months. And to whom do we owe much of our success? Robert Stacy McCain’s “How To Get a Million Hits On Your Blog in Less Than A Year.” Do “The Rules” work? You betcha! Now, if only I could get Smitty to include me in the FMJWA, I’d be all set.
Not wanting my male liberal readers to feel left out, I bring them a little Robert Stacy McCain (and smiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitty) Rule 5 liberal love. She doesn’t need the proverbial bag over her head, she needs a gag. But that’s ALL she needs, in my book! [Ahhhh, for the good old days, before I learned that she was another mindless liberal!]
Finally. For those of you with short memories, I remember how it was leading up to the invasion of Iraq. The case to invade did not rise and fall on the existence of WMD. That was only one reason of many. In fact, some liberals used the believed existence of WMD as a major reason for not invading–because WMD would be used and we would suffer too many casualties. This exposed the hypocrisy in at least those liberals–they would not have supported an invasion whether or not there were WMD–when they then used the non – existence of WMD to claim that Bush Lied, Troops Died.
The truth is that Saddam was a known threat to the stability of the region. He had previously used WMD on his own people. He lied to his own generals, making them believe that he had WMD (as it turns out he was trying to protect his country from Iraq). He did everything in his power to prevent the weapons inspectors from doing their jobs. For those too young to know, or who conveniently forgot, he even kicked the inspectors out during Bubba Clinton’s regime. The vast majority of politicians believed before the invasion that Saddam had WMD. That was not some lie cooked up by GWB.
The real lie was perpetuated by the left, once it became apparent that there were not actually WMD in Iraq. Instead of thanking God that there were none, since it prevented our boys from being killed in mass numbers, the left began to perpetuate a big lie to the world, namely that the only reason we invaded was the Bush Administration’s claim that Saddam possessed WMD. That just was not true. Sadly, the Bush Administration sat back and did next to nothing while the left, and their enablers in the mainstream media, ran with that lie for the remainder of Bush’s presidency.
Look how the left is treating Iran. They don’t want an invasion, or
any bombing, or any sanctions, to prevent Iran from obtaining nukes. If we are to prevent them from obtaining nukes, obviously we would have to invade before they obtain them. If we wait to invade until they have them, it will be too late. Likewise, the time to keep Saddam from obtaining more WMD, or re-instituting his WMD programs, was before he had enough to kill our troops. You might oppose the Iraq invasion, but do so based on facts, honestly, without resorting to the lie that “Bush Lied, Troops Died.”
A federal court has ruled that Congress’ bill cutting off funds to ACCORN violated the U.S. Constitution. And I applaud the ruling.
First, as if I must reaffirm my bona fides to my regular readers, I hate ACCORN. And I know, the group representing ACCORN appears to be a liberal group. And I despise liberal judges, and I know that the judge is a Clinton appointee (that’s enough reason to find her suspect in my eyes). And yes, I thought the reasons why Congress tried to cut off funding for ACCORN were laudable.
But I also wrote at the time the bill was passed that it appeared to violate the Constitution as a Bill of Attainder. Congress is prevented from directing legislation at a single individual or a small, identifiable group of individuals, without a damn good reason. Sadly, soon after writing the comment I saw that I was in the minority of conservatives who commented on the bill and I deleted the post, like a little girl. At least I did not delete an article where I took the same principled position against conservative Eric Cantor for him voting to cut the bonuses (that they had already earned) of AIG executives.
But reading this court’s ruling, I still think that this is a great day for Americans. Whenever the Constitution is interpreted as it was originally intended to be interpreted, that is a great day for America. A purpose of the clause forbidding Bills of Attainder was to forbid Congress from punishing their political enemies. Continue reading
