Let the chimes of freedom ring!
By Bill Needle, Contributing Editor
What else does this man have to hide?
It's been a good week for Liberty south of the border, folks!
After the the tragic events of January 20, freedom-lovers around the world watched in horror as "President" Barack Hussein Obama spear-headed his slow-motion Socialist coup d'état of the nation that saved the world from Hitler and Stalin in World War Two and fought the long fight against Communism for decades longer, while the rest of the "west" sat on the sidelines, when it wasn't actively siding with the enemy.
For a while there it looked like the last best hope for Liberty and Democracy in the world would end up on the scrap-heap of history as Hussein-Obama did his best to bankrupt his "own" country.
But freedom-loving Americans have a long history of fighting back against the forces of tyranny and it looks like they have finally have finally won a victory!
The New York Times reports the good news that the battle against "President" Hussein-Obama's so-called health care "reform (can we say "socialized medical care" boys and girls?) has been stopped in its tracks.
The American people have said "No!" to Hussein-Obama's Trojan horse!
The White House, facing increasing skepticism over President Obama’s call for a public insurance plan to compete with the private sector, signaled Sunday that it was willing to compromise and would consider a proposal for a nonprofit health cooperative being developed in the Senate.
Failed Presidential candidate, Marxist and Hussein-Obama ally screamin' Howard Dean isn't happy, of course, but how could he be, now that the Socialist advance has had its first check?.
Word that the public option might be dropped angered many liberals. One prominent Democrat, former Governor Howard Dean of Vermont, said on Monday that he saw a public plan as inextricably linked to a health overhaul. "I don’t think it can pass without the public option," Mr. Dean, who is a physician and a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said on "The Early Show" on CBS.
"There are too many people who understand, including the president himself, the public option is absolutely linked to reform,” he said. “You can’t have reform without a public option. If you really want to fix the health-care system, you’ve got to give the public the choice of having such an option."
These patriotic Americans give hope even to those of us north of the border. Maybe Steven Harper will take a lesson!
Man in the long black coat meets the men in blue!
Would you want this man walking around your neighbourhood?
I am so sick and tired of my fellow Canuckistanis whining about how "dangerous" it is in the United States!
My lily-livered fellow-"citizens", most of whom have never even handled a gun, flap their limp wrists in the wind because a few more folks down south get murdered than they do up here.
Well, we all know that most of them had it coming; and if they didn't, why weren't they armed so they could fight back?
Meanwhile, who says that poor folks in the USofA don't get the police protection they deserve?
It seems that aging folk musician Bobby Dylan (A.K.A. Robert Allan Zimmerman) learned a little lesson the other day.
Seems Mr. "Dylan" had the temerity to saunter into a Long Branch, New Jersey neighbourhood and walk around like he owned the place.
The 67 year-old "poet" and "musician" was "wandering around the neighbourhood".
Mr. Dylan was in Long Branch, about a two-hour drive south of New York City, on July 23 as part of a tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp that was to play at a baseball stadium in nearby Lakewood.
A 24-year-old police officer apparently was unaware of who Mr. Dylan is and asked him for identification, Long Branch business administrator Howard Woolley said yesterday.
"I don't think she was familiar with his entire body of work," Mr. Woolley said.
The incident began at 5 p.m. when a resident said a man was "wandering around a low-income neighbourhood ... looking at houses" when a patriotic resident phoned the police.
The incident began at 5 p.m. when a resident said a man was wandering around a low-income neighbourhood several blocks from the oceanfront, looking at houses.
The police officer drove up to Mr. Dylan, who was wearing a blue jacket, and asked his name.
It seems "Dylan" wasn't even carrying any identification, but he was lucky enough that the police officers involved were willing to drive him to the hotel he was staying at so he could prove who he was instead of just calling in Homeland Security.
Now, some might fault those officers for not being careful enough, but I say the two 20-somethings could take care of themselves.
Still, it's good to know that in America, even poor neighbourhoods are safe from 67 year-old strangers just walking around and "looking at houses".
In this day and age, you can't be too careful.
