I’m sure you’ve heard of the “incident”.
“I think it’s fair to say, No. 1, any of us would be pretty angry,” Obama said. “No. 2, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home. And No. 3—what I think we know separate and apart from this incident—is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that’s just a fact.”
This whole incident just proves to me that Obama is not about moving past race- he is, in fact, all about race. Let me be blunt: President Barack Obama made a snap judgment, based on race, without having the facts. By his own definition, he is a racist.

The State Sovereignty movement is great, as far as it goes. All across the country, state legislatures are finally doing what is right and putting the Federal Leviathan on notice. States are beginning to waken from the slumber that has gripped them since the 1860s. Patriots applaud the sudden advent of spine in representatives that have traditionally been but an extension of Washington bureaucracy.
Why then, isn’t Obama scaling back his plans for applying the screws to whoever will hold still?
The answer is ‘Nullification’.
Tenth Amendment Resolutions and Firearms Freedom Acts are wonderful things, and I applaud them. I want every State to have one. But they are only the first step. You can tell your neighbor not to let his dogs shit in your yard, but what will you do when he sends his dogs over to lay logs on your grass? You can either roll over and take it — or you can whip the damn dogs and promise to kill them next time.
Shaking a stick means nothing if you aren’t willing and able to use it. If your State legislature can pass a Tenth Amendment resolution, they’d better be willing to pass a Nullification when the time comes. And it’s coming.

Obama says Honduran ouster was ‘not legal’
Look, I’ll admit that I know less than nothing about Honduras and its politics. And I will also admit that it is seldom ‘legal’ when the Army decides to kick out the head of state. BUT…
Everyone in the fucking hemisphere now knows this bastard was trying to make an end run around the constitution he swore to uphold. Everybody with a pulse knows he was going to declare himself Supremo-for-life. Everybody knows he’s close pals with every Commie in Latin America.
Everybody, that is, except Barack Obama.
Our President. May the Lord God protect the Republic.

By way of a commenter at Front Porch Republic, I ran across this great piece by H.L. Mencken, written in 1920. The whole article is great, and worth remembering in the days when the Union is about to finally dissolve and the Republican Party meanders to its deserved grave. This small taste, regarding the Gettysburg Address:
The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination—”that government of the people, by the people, for the people,” should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in that battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves.
I ran across it by way of The Gunslinger.

Observe yon cartoon. Notice anything funny about it?
Besides the fact that it’s not funny… yes, McCain flew a jet and Obama isn’t qualified to fly an ultralight, or ultralights use less fuel, or the wishful thinking that McCain has a chance to win based on anything. The cartoon, on it’s face, is NOT funny.
But this IS funny. Look under the cockpit on the jet, where the victory stickers would normally go. Rather than little stars signifying victory over North Vietnamese aircraft, McCain’s plane has little American flags, symbolizing victory over AMERICAN aircraft. Heh… now, that’s funny, intentional or not.
One flag represents Campaign Finance Reform, one for Immigration Reform, one is for the Gang of Fourteen – on and on and on. John McCain may be qualified to be President, but the sonuvabitch doesn’t deserve to be President.
