“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Where's the transparency, Obama?

Obama's promise to lead the most transparent administration in presidential history turns out to have been one of the biggest lies in presidential history...

After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

His rhetoric of impending doom along with Pelosi and Reid's naked lust for power forced the biggest spending bill in US history through without anybody even reading it. Of the 48 hours that were promised to the American people to examine the bill, Pelosi's maggot-like staffers used up 30 of them to convert the format of the bill to .pdf. As you know, .pdf files cannot be searched for key words of phrases, they can only be read, just like paper. Then they put it online in the dead of the night before the vote leaving republicans no time to comb over it.

Then, once it passed, instead of signing it on Friday as if the sky were falling like he told us, The One took a three day vacation and he won't sign it until Tuesday. If he didn't plan on signing it until Tuesday, why not let republicans examine the bill over the long weekend and vote on Tuesday too? This was nakedly about Obama, Reid, and Pelosi using scare tactics to get their way, and cramming the biggest, government power grab in history through congress before Americans got a good look at it.

Transparent my ass!

I'm sure all the Republicans need to do is find a 10 year old to show them how to search this file.

But why should they have to?

I cannot watch Pelosi on T.V., at all. Four letters sum her existence up: evil...or vile, same four letters.

And Obama is becoming unwatchable with all the pauses, ums, and ahs. I thought we elected someone who could at least speak well.

Yesterday I found a BOGO (buy one, get one) on pitchforks at my local Ace hardware store. A red-letter day!

A little revolution now and then, is a good thing.
