"We have beaten the business cycle." — WJBC

"We have to pass it so we can find out what's in it." — Nancy Pelosi (2009)

"This is the moment the earth began to heal." — Barack Obama

"We're serious about this." — Joe Biden

"I am not na´ve." — B.O.

"The border is as secure as it's ever been." — Janet Napolitano

"We are defined not by our borders but by our bonds." — B.Obama

"Mr. Bush, at long last has it not dawned on you that the America you have now created includes cold-blooded killers who will kill people to achieve their political objectives?" — Keith Olbermann

"If I hear one more Republican talk about balancing the budget, I'm going to strangle him." — Joe Biden

"What began as a whisper has now swelled to a chorus that cannot be ignored — that will ring out across this land as a hymn that will heal this nation, repair this world, and make this time different than al the rest." — B. Obama (February 5, 2008)

"From the streets to the Senate chamber, I've never had to prove my manhood to anyone." — Harry Reid

"If the GOP wins, it's going to be man-to-man combat." — B. Obama

"[Michelle Malkin] has been supporting a party which includes most of the idiots in this country who would judge her entirely and exclusively on her [Filipino] appearance." — Keith Olbermann

"That's between him and his — y'know — psychiatrist." — NPR CEO (on Juan Williams)

CONCLUSIONS?

George Orwell — who was NOT a liberal — said: "Freedom is the freedom to say that two and two make four. If that is granted, all else follows."

When people begin to say that 2 + 2 equals five, it's scary, but it would be wrong to make them shut up, as John Stuart Mill would put it. But when the people who say that 2 + 2 = FOUR are silenced — as NPR tried to do to Juan Williams this week, that's really scary! I think NPR ought to change the name of Fund-raising Week to Hell-raising Week. Let George do it (Soros).

The President says that when people are "afraid" they don't think very clearly — and he's trying to say that 2 + 2 might be FIVE ("if it works for you"). WELL, on behalf of those of us who are clinging to our religions, here's one of my favorite quotations:

"THE LORD HATH NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR. THAT'S WHAT LAWYERS ARE FOR." — author unknown

In case you haven't heard, there's a free election scheduled for next week. Let's make it a "no confidence" vote regarding President Obama's Utopia.

[Independents and conservatives are supposed to vote on Tuesday, and in order to keep the lines shorter, the rest of you can vote early and as often as you want to on Wednesday. Remember when that joke was going around in 2004? Some people didn't take it as a joke, which means they probably don't have enough brains to read the ballot anyway. ]

P.S. According to Yahoo!NewsAskAmerica, there are an awful lot of people out there who don't even know who the Vice-president of the United States is. Scary enough yet?

PPS: The ATM at my Credit Union now asks its customers to "select a language." But the really scary part is that ENGLISH ISN'T EVEN THE FIRST CHOICE!

No wonder the Natives are restless, EH?
