Quote of the Day, Money is Power (and vice versa) edition

Those who constantly complain about the influence of money in politics have to wrap their heads around this: people will spend money to advance, or to protect, their own interests. If the government has the power to promote one interest over another, or to destroy one interest in favor of another…

…which, in case we’re not clear, our government does…

…then people will spend money to influence their government. It’s sense.

Want to get the money out of politics? Reduce the power of government. Reduce people’s interest in influencing the government. Politics will become less important, and the money will stop flowing.

From the Troglopundit, who I've been told isn't nearly as hairy as his name makes him seem.

For what it's worth

I saw this bad boy while it was at a rest-stop in Tennessee.  They had the rest-stop completely closed, with barricades in front of the in-ramp, and as I drove past it I could see this thing sitting there, with a while bunch of trucks around it.



It has the same basic shape as the Stealth Bomber, and it was wrapped up in plastic so that you couldn't see anything specific.  I figured it was either a drone, or a new prototype of plane for the Air Force.

Is it wrong that I didn't really give a shit about it?  I just wanted to get home after nearly two months of being away.

Watched a video of Eric Holder last night

And it made me want to disinfect everything in the immediate area.  That dude is SLIMY.

The Left in one interview



You want to see what people in Wisconsin have been subjected to for the past year and a half?  Listen to Mike scream in this interview.  Thanks, Liberals. 

I don't want to hear ONE GOD-DAMNED WORD about civility from a fucking liberal.  The fucking hypocrites.

Thinks you might not know

I actually have liberal friends.

We don't discuss politics, and we have mutual interests outside political items, but we're on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to conservative/liberal.  Actually, they're not liberal, they're PROGRESSIVE.

And for the past year and a half, it's been "RECALL WALKER" and "TAX THE RICH" and every other progressive mantra that can be heard here in Wisconsin.  Facebook?  Twenty posts a day, fifteen about how evil Scott Walker is.

Me, I don't even bother to talk to them about it.  What would be the point?  They're so closed-minded on the topic that trying to explain facts to them would just piss them off.  The last time I spoke with them politically was after Obamacare came out, and I asked them what right they had to take my money, or my dad's money, or my boss' money and pay for a stranger's health care?  "Health care is a RIGHT!" they said.  And I responded "How can it be a right when someone else has to pay for it?  If we're going to follow that logic, then why don't I have a right to take your money and give it to a Catholic orphanage?  Those children NEED that money!"

Did I mention that they're pagan?  Yeah.  That didn't go over well.

Anyways, it all boils down to this:  I have been silently enjoying every single moment of anguish coming out of the Left here in Wisconsin.  Drinking it like a fine wine, I have.  Yep.  When I saw the video of the snot-nosed pussy crying about how Democracy died?  I laughed, and I laughed, and I hit "replay" about ten times so I could laugh again.  Oh, and by the way, he's not alone in how he feels.  I've heard everything from "WALKER CHEATED!" (with no explanation of how that happened) to "WE MUST DEFEAT THE FORCES OF FASCISM!" (with no explanation of how successive elective losses in open, fair elections is fascist).

I have reveled in the sweet, sweet sorrow that is the progressive Left in Wisconsin.  But now it's time to get back to work.  We didn't win by sitting on our asses.  And we can't afford to sit on our asses now.  I won't be here to see it, but I want Romney to win Wisconsin just to hear the shrieks of agony from the Left in this state.  Trust me.  I'll hear it.  I'll see it.  It needs to happen.

Home

After a long absence.  I'm off to enjoy the day with the Ragin' Mrs. and a motorcycle.  See you later.
