Pelosi/Spielberg Rebrand Democrat Fiction


Soon-to-be-former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has contacted professional fiction writers to rewrite the public image of herself and the Democrat Party.
Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.
I'm thinking a rewrite - Pinko and the Brain, genius mouse and stupid sidekick try to conquer the world each day and night. Talks are in the works to get Harrison Ford to play Miss Nancy.

A Liberty Tree Dies in Brooklyn

Mohammad and Obama sing duet:

Sharia . . .
The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
Sharia, Sharia, Sharia, Sharia . . .
All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
Sharia, Sharia, Sharia, Sharia . . .
Sharia!



This is the city. Brooklyn, NY. Once it was a decent town, but only once and never again. Once church bells could be heard throughout the city, but no longer. Church bells are a violation of noise ordinances. The Muslim call to prayer is not, however, a violation of those noise ordinances because Obama says the call to prayer is the most beautiful sound he's ever heard. Sharia, Sharia, Sharia, Sharia . . .
Sharia!

Its Not the Earmarks, Its the Pigs at the Trough

Last Friday night was a big date night for Americans. The monstrous $1.2 trillion Senate Omnibus bill of 1900+ pages containing 6,714 earmarks worth $8.3 billion was rejected over the objections of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Wielding his pocket Cato Institute Constitution like a feudal mace, Reid declared earmarks to be simple "congressionally-directed spending". And he's right. Approving earmarks is the job of Congress - earmarks to build a new fleet, earmarks to rebuild the national transportation system, earmarks that benefit the general welfare not earmarks to improve lighting in any small town central square.

David Boaz at the Cato Institute maintains it's not the earmarks that are the problem; the problem is the congressional pigs at the trough unable to distinguish between the general welfare and garden variety welfare giveaways and the voters who continually vote for themselves other people's money.
The fundamental problem is not earmarks. It is that the federal government is paying for clearly local and state responsibilities. Opponents of excessive spending should not stop at an earmark ban. They should insist that the federal government pay for national needs and leave state and local projects to the states and towns that want them.
