This editorial, written by Ken Huber from Tawas City, Michigan, has been making the rounds on the internet. Thought it was worthy of sharing with readers who may have missed it...
Just a few short years ago, Madame Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca), blasted President Bush in 2007 for soaring gas prices. Now that gas costs are near or above the $4.00 per gallon mark - and are expected to keep increasing - not a peep from Ms. Pelosi.
Nope. Nada. Crickets chirp. As usual, Prez Obama gets a free pass - from his fellow Democrats, libs, and, of course, the accomplice mainstream media. Yet again, another classic example of liberal hypocrisy.
Nothing to see here, move along...
A wonderful conservative acquaintance of mine (thanks, Paula) recently e-mailed me the following article. After reading it, I was very impressed. I contacted the author, Tim Nerenz, who gave me his permission to reprint his entire column. Thanks very much, Tim!
Remember these from school? “Ask not what your country can do for you; demand it.” “The only thing to fear is buying our own stuff.” “Give me liberty or give me free stuff.” “One if by land, two if by sea; get off that horse and buy my stuff for me.”
And who can forget, “I have a dream…where you have to give me stuff.”
What in the world has happened to us? How did we go from Patrick Henry and Dr. Martin Luther King to some 30 year-old still-a-student from Georgetown going on national TV to demand more government because she can’t figure out how to keep from getting knocked up on her own dime?
President Obama – our President Obama - called to congratulate her for that and tell her she represents all women. Really? All women? How about it, ladies – are all of you spending your days getting drilled by losers who can’t afford their own condoms and then bragging about it under oath on CSPAN? Has your liberation from men left you that completely helpless?
I don’t think she represents very many women at all; most that I know are proud of their independence and character. Sometimes politicians say things so incredibly stupid we wonder how they managed to ever get elected...and then other times they sleep.
But you know what? This whole free contraception thing is the straw that broke the camel’s back. I am tired of pushing the rock up the hill – I’m throwing in with the gimmee-gimmee crowd. Kennedy didn’t know squat, Henry was a flake, Jefferson had it all wrong, and Dr. King must have been some selfish, racist, libertarian with that stupid dream that every individual should be judged by the content of their character. Screw that.
I have a better dream. I have a dream that you buy your stuff for you and then you buy my stuff for me. That’s equality, right there. Whatever I want and just because I want it. Food, housing, day care, abortions, contraception, train rides, a job, pension, health care, a Volt, college, flat-out cash. The way it works is you give me the stuff I need so I can use my own money to buy the stuff I want – Spring Break in Cancun, iTunes, tattoos. You even have to buy my Ambien so I can dream my dream.
I have another dream where you taxpaying welders have to pay for my college as long as I want to keep going, and then I will whine and bitch about my student loans for years until you write them off. And then I will whine and bitch some more because you won’t hire me with my useless degree and pathetic attitude. If that doesn’t work, I’ll sue you. Or boycott, or occupy, or break your glass or light your stuff on fire.
I don’t need a reason. You owe me, because I breathe. I have a dream…
In my new dream you have to hire me and then you can’t fire me, and I get sick days and vacation days and holidays and union conferences off, and call-in days, and I can watch porn on school computers and if you fire me for that I get reinstated with back pay. I have a dream…where I can retire early, draw a pension and then get paid again to go back to work at the same job.
How about this one: “We hold this truth to be self-evident - I get my way.”
If my guy doesn’t win an election we get to recall the guy who did, and you have to pay for it. I decide my pay and benefits and you pay. I get to tell you what to do and you do it. In my dream I can stop you from mining on your own land, from owning your own guns, selling your own milk, and growing your own food. We’re all in this together – I say and you do.
I have a dream that I decide how much profit you can make and how much of your own money you get to keep. I have a dream where you have to join my union and dues get taken out your check before the IRS even gets their bite of the apple. I have a dream where you don’t have squat to say about it. Shut up, bitch – this is what democracy looks like. That’s how I sound in my dream - street.
I have a dream where it is a disability to be me, so now I get to park up front and get even more free stuff than if I was a just a regular broke-dick. I want that ID card where you have to give me medical marijuana and King Crimson CD’s. I have a dream… [Alarm goes off and I wake all sweaty and heart-pounding]
Wow, that was some nightmare; too bad we are living in it. Do you know the difference between shame and Beetlejuice? If you say Beetlejuice three times, he shows up. The Wisconsin lefty protestors have proven you can chant “shame shame shame” until the cows come home or flee to Illinois and it won’t instill any in you.
This Georgetown woman did her own shameful three-way; turns out she is not 23, is not a real student, and is a serial testifier – a 30 year-old “activist” fabricated for the cameras by the marketing department over at Democrat Victimhood, Inc. Wham, bam, thanks for the sound bite, ma’am. The party of women creates a new national Lewinsky to humiliate, and the shameless left cheers her on. Cheeky.
The worst thing about his whole incident is that we now know what kind of dipstick gets into law school these days; we can look forward to decades of her suing us because her watch stopped, or the Fox station airs Seinfeld re-runs when she likes to tan, or brunettes earn more than blondes, or guys don’t need tampons, or they play hockey in the South. Who knows what craving for attention will trigger another seizure?
At age 40 she will be up on the Hill testifying about why we need to buy her a tummy tuck and liposuction, and at age 50, it will be breast augmentation and collagen implants. At 60 we will start medicating her libido back into action and 70 she will be hounding us to buy the hubby’s dinger pills and call dermabrasion health care and make us pay for it. By then she will have some money and have turned Republican. It won’t matter; they both want free stuff.
At a panel on nationalizing health care in 2009, I warned the greatest danger of a government-run system was the politicization of illness, disease, and treatment. Equating avoidance of a voluntary condition (pregnancy) with prevention of a disease in order to mandate contraceptive coverage without compensation is just the tip of the iceberg of what we can expect each election year when the pols are trolling for votes in the highly-contested moron community.
When your health care costs go up and your employer drops your coverage, you can’t say that you weren’t warned. While this young lady was reading her lines over at Nancy Pelosi’s Theatre of the Absurd, the real news was being made by HHS Secretary Sebelius, who gloated that the insurance industry was in a “death spiral” and promising us straight-faced that mandating coverage without compensation had nothing to do with it.
No doubt the frisky coeds over at Georgetown Law School believed every word of it.

Following is an e-mail I received from a conservative acquaintance of mine, Paula (thanks much!). She wrote this herself and, given the constant recall garbage, the Democrats killing thousands of mining jobs solely for potitical reasons, and the take-over of the capitol gearing up again in the People's Republic of Madison, her write up is oh-so-timely:
Hey All -
We here in Wisconsin are in the middle of an endless political
mêlée. Over a year ago our state capital was occupied, there were
mass protests, death threats to our Republican officials, vandalism,
recalls and then more recalls and through it all the most vile,
hateful, and divisive rhetoric I have ever heard. Never in my wildest
dreams did I think that moving from New Jersey to Wisconsin that I
would be thrust into the epicenter of a colossal political battle -
but here I sit!
The advantage of having my front row seat is that I have seen first
hand the base - the foot soldiers - the loudest voices directing the
Democrat Party. I have made many visits to Madison during the past
year. I have attended rallies, read blogs on both sides of the isle,
and will engage perfect strangers in conversation wherever I am. The
one observation I have made is this. The vast majority of those that
side with the current Democrat agenda here in Wisconsin consist of :
* The public employee union - teachers union, ASFME, etc.
* The academic elites both in Madison and of the greater ivy league
* Environment radicals, those who will gladly use fear and lies
instead of science and history to arouse opposition to anything they
deem environmentally unfriendly.
* Socialists, Communists and statists. I can say first hand that
material for the Socialist Party USA and the Communist Party were
freely being handed out in Madison during the protests. Speakers on
these topics were well received by the mob who were only too
happy to spit their contempt for capitalism and profit.
* The Mainstream media of course the willing accomplice. I have never
seen so much one sided reporting of news.
* Dependent class. Those who are being courted with more and more
handouts for their votes.
Granted I grew up in a conservative Republican household but I always
thought that the differences between Republicans and Democrats fell
mostly along the lines of what color shirt you wore to work, a white
button down or a blue collar. As I have observed the landscape over
the past months I have come to realize that my original assumption is
far from reality. The Democrat Party has totally abandon it's blue
collar roots. It it now the party of the dependent, the elite and the
public unions. Just look at what is happening here in Wisconsin. All
16 Democrat State Senators voted against streamlining the approval
process for an iron mine in Northern Wisconsin - against the will of
the ten of thousands of private sector union workers who strongly
backed the legislation. The modern Democrat Party now finds itself a
slave to those far left wing progressive groups that will not accept
any variation from it's agenda no matter how bad it is for those it
claims to champion. Just ask the local trade union guys who are mad
as hell that this legislation went down because the Democrat Party
thought it more important to not give Scott Walker a "win" than give
good jobs to the working class.
So again I ask who is the Democrat base? Those of you who are
generational Democrats, those of you that come from hard working blue
collar families - is this the party of your father? Would your dad
have agreed to kill off good paying family sustaining union jobs just
to make a political point? Would they have agreed with boycotting a
local businesses that had a different political view than them,
putting a neighbor out of work to make a political point? Would your
dad have agreed with making death threats against a co-worker who had
the gall to not agree with you on signing a recall petition? I am sad
to say that this is my experience with the modern Democrat Party of
Wisconsin - I am hopeful that cooler heads will prevail and civility
and honor can be brought back to the process - but at this point in
Wisconsin I am not holding my breath.
Here's a bit of real humor to add to the on-going circus atmosphere our state currently finds itself in. Besides the upcoming round of ridiculous recalls, we now have Voter ID being temporarily put on hold by liberal Madison judges - legislating from the bench as usual. Next come the recent "ethics allegations" filed against Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser. (Are people shaking their heads on this one in disgust like me? They should be - it's totally absurd.) Yet another case of trying to keep the state in chaos simply because a minority is not happy with election results. Also, lets not forget the "Twilight Zone" episode of the never-ending John Doe investigation. Libs are just looking to "get Walker" on anything - just anything! - no matter how long it will take...
With all this in mind, it's nice to be able to laugh once in awhile at a real joke - not just the antics of the left in our state! Enjoy the following, sent to me by my sister-in-law from out in Montana. Guess she hasn't forgotten her Wisconsin roots -
YOU MAY NEED TO BE FROM WISCONSIN, MINNESOTA, OR THE U.P. OF MICHIGAN TO APPRECIATE THIS STORY.
The year is 2016 and the U.S. has just elected the first woman president,who happens to be from Wisconsin. A few days after the election, the president-elect, whose name is Susan, calls her Father, Ole, and says,'So,Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?'
“I don’t tink so. It’s an 18 hour drive.”
'Don't worry about it Dad, I'll send Air Force One, and a limousine will pick you up at your door.'
'I don't know. Everybody will be so fancy. Vhat would your mother vear?'
Oh Dad ," replies Susan, 'I'll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by the best designer in Washington.'
'Honey,' Ole complains, 'you know I can't eat dose rich foods you eat.' Do day serve tap beer?
The President-to-be responds, 'Don't worry Dad. The entire affair will be handled by the best caterer in Washington; I'll ensure your meals are salt free. You and mom just have to be there.'
So Ole reluctantly agrees and on January 20, 2017, Susan is being sworn in as President of the United States. In the front row sits the new president's Dad and Mom. Dad, noticing the senator sitting next to him, leans over and whispers, 'You see dat woman over dare wit her hand onda Bible, becoming President of da United States?'
The Senator whispers back, 'You bet I do.'
Ole says proudly, "Her brother played football for da Green Bay Packers."
High schoolers out-chant the anti-Walker unionistas, hippies, and assorted misfits at the State Capitol
High schoolers stand with Walker! The anti-Walker zombie sing-a-long crowd (that seems to have waaaay too much time on their hands to hang out at the capitol) never saw 'em coming...
(Unfortunately, not to be outdone, guess what the open-minded, compassionate lefties did? Several got on the phone and called Sheboygan Lutheran High School, leaving "nice" messages for the Sheboygan Lutheran staffers...)
Stay classy, libs! Just can't stand it when someone beats you at your own game.
You can now go back to annoying staffers at the capitol on a daily basis. Beat those bongos, smoke some grass, stay dirty, and sing your inane songs. Believe me, your antics turn more people off than you can imagine. In the People's Republic of Madison, you may be heroes. To the rest of the state, you are just obnoxious. You are a walking advertisement for keeping Governor Scott Walker in office. In a way, we should be thanking you for making such a nuisance of yourself that even high schoolers felt compelled to chant you down.
Three cheers for the high schoolers from Sheboygan Lutheran High School! Their simple words of "stand with Walker" really resonated with the majority of Wisconsinites. The majority who have chosen to remain quiet, civil, and behind the scenes, just waiting to for the opportunity to "re-elect" Walker in a few months..
