Big Gov.

In Once-Great Britain, those who want to comply with onerous waste recycling rules must use up to nine separate bags and bins, or face fines for non-compliance.

The containers include a silver slopbucket for food waste, which is then tipped in to a larger, green outdoor food bin, a pink bag for plastic bottles, a green bag for cardboard, and a white bag for clothing and textiles.

Paper and magazines go in blue bags, garden waste in a wheelie bin with a brown lid, while glass, foil, tins and empty aerosols should go in a blue box, with a grey wheelie bin for non-recyclable waste."

Also, the trash is collected less frequently. Higher costs, worse service, all mandatory; progressive governance at work.

San Francisco Values Revisited

The City of San Francisco is barring its employees from traveling to Arizona because the thought that the state would compel illegal aliens to conform themselves to laws duly enacted by the people's legislature horrified their sense of propriety.

Whereas San Francisco progressives view themselves as the epitome of moral values and civic virtues and feel that their self-righteousness entitles them to impose their values nationwide.

Let's have a quick recap of what those San Francisco values actually are, shall we?

Shielding Illegal Immigrant Drug Dealers from Prosecution

Shielding Illegal Aliens Who Slaughter American Families from Prosecution

Allowing Illegal Aliens to Drive Without Licenses

Banning Military Recruiters from high schools

Banning Junior ROTC from High Schools

Banning citizens from owning guns for self-defense

Using taxpayer dollars to pay for sex changes

Banning the Navy's Blue Angels from performing

Voting on a proposal to rename a sewage plant for George W. Bush

Lesbian schoolteachers taking their classes to their weddings for field trips

Dressing Toddlers in S&M Outfits and Parading Them at a Public Sex Orgy

Providing Taxpayer Funding to Support an Open Air Sex Orgy

Mayor Bangs His Aide's Wife and Admits to a Substance Abuse Problem; Re-Elected Easily

Evicting a Business Owner Because Enron Paid for the 9-11 Attacks (Really)

Code Pink

We should all bow down before such awesome moral superiority, shouldn't we?

The Ever Classy Progressive Left Hopes Sarah Palin Chokes

Good thing it's a "hate-free zone," otherwise I guess they'd be hoping she and her daughters were ripped apart by wild dogs and then sasquatch peed on their remains. Or is wishing violence on someone not hateful when that someone is Sarah Palin?

One more thing about that picture of anti-Palin protesters, where are the black faces?

Why one should vote Democrat

10. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

9. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

8. I voted Democrat because Freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

7. I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

6. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

5. I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies through abortion so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

4. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits.

3. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the democrats see fit.

2. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my ass it's unlikely that I'll ever have another point of view.

Here is the way I see it

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that's it.

In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.

When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force.

The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.

There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we'd be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a [armed] mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger's potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat--it has no validity when most of a mugger's potential marks are armed.

People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

Then there's the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser.
People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don't constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level.

The gun is the only weapon that's as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weight lifter. It simply wouldn't work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn't both lethal and easily employable.

When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation... and that's why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

So the greatest civilization is one where all citizens are equally armed and can only be persuaded, never forced.

The governor’s office said Monday that Allee Bautsch suffered a broken leg and her boyfriend suffered a concussion and fractured nose and jaw in the alleged incident.

The DNC wants you to know; it's okay to hate Sarah Palin and anyone who supports her.

Two Republicans in New Orleans for the Southern Republican Leadership Congress reportedly received severe beatings, quite likely from anarchists outraged that they were wearing Sarah Palin pins.

Will Tina Fey, Keith Olbermann and the Dramacrat Leadership that has deliberately targeted Sarah Palin in their fundraising take responsibility for the violence they have instigated? I mean, progressives have to be aware that the constant attacks and vitriol directed against Sarah Palin (e.g. the wolf-slaughtering, religious hypocrite, quitter with the slut daughter who took advantage of that sweetheart Levi Johnston) could result in some members of their team engaging in violence?


• New taxes
• Single payer health care
• Expansion of government entitlements
• Government waste
• Preferential treatment for unions
• Legislation based on disputed science
• Back room deals
• Political correctness taken preference to safety
• Acquiescing that we don't need to be the best
• Punishing Americans that have succeeded
• Smothering small businesses in favor of the unions
• Appointing self-loathing Americans to the Administration
• Sin taxes
• Stepping on States' rights
• Changing our country without our consent!

I say we embrace their talking point...please add to what we are prepared to say NO to...

I hope he didn’t break a nail…

Obama was booed when he was announced, booed again when he put on a Chicago White Sox hat (I am sure it was the hat and I can’t blame him for supporting his team), and he was booed when he threw the pitch. He certainly deserved the boos for the pitch. It looked like a basketball pass.

The way he throws it might be better if they start having him throw out the first pitch at slow pitch softball games. At least in that game the ball is supposed to have an arc on it.

I hope he didn’t break a nail…
