Freedom

Back in 1980 Ronald Reagan asked Americans the question that ensured Jimmy Carter was a one-term president: “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Asked the same question in last month’s Washington Post–ABC News poll, just 16 percent of Americans said they are.---Niall Ferguson, Newsweek

“The private sector is doing fine.”---Barry Obama, June 8, 2012

See you...in November!

I just added this Antonello guy to my oft-contradictory list of NEPA links.

Those of you who know me understand that I absolutely loathe 99.9% of the usually clueless and laughably self-righteous protestors accomplishing nothing more than adding to the overtime costs of the cities they decide to pollute by their very presence.

And on most days, nothing gives me more pleasure than watching Internet videos of lines of embattled police officers physically beating the last cocaine-encrusted snot out of the protestors gone violent, destructive or completely lame-brained.

Plus, when the massed slackers are going on about killing the “one percent,” promoting “critical thinking” or how the world would be instantly covered in candy and cookies and tacos and edible toys if only pot were legalized, I always have this burning yearning to be deputized and handed a lead-lined wooden club.

But, in the case of this Antonello guy, how am I supposed to dislike a guy who relentlessly barnstorms for freedom from an increasingly tyrannical and overreaching government spidering it’s way into every facet of everyday Amerikan life?

Freedom.

I got no argument against that.

Later
