    Should I go to the Occupy Ithaca protest tomorrow?  And tell them that they already occupy Ithaca so they can’t occupy themselves?

    How are the Occupy protests any different than what we see every time there is a G20 meeting?

    Not good when a candidate’s wife becomes an issue, and when the candidate then has to defend what the wife said.  Anita Perry was correct, but still not good.

    So Obama knew about Fast and Furious before Holder?  Don’t think so.

    $86 billion in supposed Obamacare savings just went out the door.  Who coulda predicted.

    What else?


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    Isn’t the Widener story just getting more and more pathetic?

    1)Don’t go…if you are a college football fan you will probably enjoy the game more. If not a fan, flip a coin.

    2)There isn’t a difference, see #1.

    3)Mrs. Perry is another example why spouses should be seen and not heard on the campaign trail.

    4)See you in court Eric.

    5)A fifth grader with an IQ of 75.

    Drum roll……


    I like the methodical approach of Liberty . . . here is a second set of answers to all the questions you asked, but with some different views:

    1) If I were you, I’d have gone to the #OccupyCornell event, not so much to point out that the eponymous phrase is really little more than a “repetitious redundancy”, but because you will inevitably collect a few great photos of a few of the “anti-objectivist” participants, along with some of their amusing signs, and bumper stickers for your growing collection.

    2) I tend to agree with Liberty on this one. There is little difference, though many of these privileged protesters are new recruits.

    As Lennox might say today:

    . . . I have a file
    Of all the gentry: there is Siward’s son,
    And many unrough youths that even now
    Protest their first of manhood.

    3) The attempt to “humanize” Perry by fronting his wife to go out and publicly whine on his behalf was a serious error. If his campaign operatives honestly believe that whining about how unfairly he is being treated is an effective campaign strategy, they should have selected someone who was a little less personally connected to him to undertake that role.

    4) The Community Organizer in Chief will be his own undoing. He insisted on keeping the Blackberry, and he has proved all along to be the Great Divider. His first campaign simply never ended, and his attempt to identify with the “occupiers” is a pretty transparent effort to avoid criticism for his administration’s economic failure.

    And, with “fast and furious” it is clear that even the obviously very high risk of lost lives simply did not matter to him in undertaking a ham-handed attempt to demonize Americans who take their Second amendment rights seriously.

    No AG would ever okay such an operation without a sign-off and some measure of secret ongoing coordination at the highest levels — most likely through the Chief of Staff. This is Obama’s Watergate.

    5) He always disliked CLASS, but he needed Ted Kennedy’s support. Kennedy died. The Obama political operatives have concluded that a sufficient period of time has passed, so that it is not seen as dishonoring the memory of the late Senator.

    And, therefore, Obama has unilaterally concluded that the law is not the law after all!

    Who is surprised by any of this?

    Consider this: Not just one (Gov. Purdue) but two (Cong. Jackson) prominent Democrats have now suggested the desirability of the suspension of our constitutional political process — elections — as a way to solve our problems!

    Wake up folks! This guy Obama and his rabid band of extra-constitutional followers occupiers really do intend to fundamentally transform the United States of America and to do so — now that the Presidency of Barack Obama has demonstrably failed — by any necessary means!

    He is bringing the war home!

      Liberty in reply to Trochilus. | October 15, 2011 at 6:06 pm

      Thanks for the compliments Trochilus. Since my comments were my last sentient thoughts of a long day, I wasn’t as thoughful as you and I, too, liked what you said. Also, I really liked your last point, something that I really haven’t given a lot of thought to and have to agree with in totality. And, not only do you have discerning taste complimenting me ;), but I see you are also a VDH fan too.

      Yours in the Bond,

    Last spring, Victor David Hanson rather neatly summarized the completion of the Obama “transformation” of our foreign policy, one which Senator Obama had fought against and opposed on principal at every single turn . . . by “changing” it into what might best be compared to a software upgrade!

    “In sum, Senator Obama opposed tribunals, renditions, Guantanamo, preventive detention, Predator-drone attacks, the Iraq War, wiretaps, and intercepts — before President Obama either continued or expanded nearly all of them, in addition to embracing targeted assassinations, new body scanning and patdowns at airports, and a third preemptive war against an oil-exporting Arab Muslim nation — this one including NATO efforts to kill the Qaddafi family. The only thing more surreal than Barack Obama’s radical transformation is the sudden approval of it by the once hysterical Left. In Animal Farm and 1984 fashion, the world we knew in 2006 has simply been airbrushed away.”

    As audacious as that was, who can honestly deny that Obama is now trying to get away with bringing war home to the streets of our country by “signing on” with the occupiers?
