"Rarely is there new wisdom. Frequently are there forgotten lessons. 'The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.' --Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43BC)

Congresswoman Betty McCollum, D-Minn recently proposed a law prohibiting The Defense Department from spending money on advertisements for NASCAR. Democrats claim that this is “wasteful” spending, but that’s actually not true. What is the point of the advertising? It is to recruit patriotic Americans to join the military. Who tends to go to NASCAR races? Patriotic Americans! The advertisements, then, do serve the purpose of advancing our national security interests by placing advertisements in a place that are highly likely to appeal to patriotic Americans. Democrats hate the military, and NASCAR, so it makes sense why they would propose such a shameful law.
Democrats have utter contempt for the voters who elect them. This week, Barack Obama’s organization, “Organize for America,” is taking efforts to organize thousands of union thugs to bully the state legislature and the Republican governor of Wisconsin from passing the modest rule that union members pay more for their own health care and retirement benefits. Imagine that—asking union members to pay for their own benefits! They don’t want to pay for it. They want citizens to pay for these benefits instead of themselves.

It looks more and more like the Egyptian revolution is not one against authoritarian government, but rather an Islamic, totalitarian movement that is even worse than the prior regime. Not surprisingly, Obama seems to support the idea of an Islamist Egypt, just as he betrayed the people of Honduras by supporting a Chavez-style dictator, and the people of Iran, who truly were interested in removing an anti-American regime. The only pattern is Obama is against the pro-American regimes and always favors the anti-American one. Coincidence?
