Biden-Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq were not a Cheney pipe-dream

Well, the point is, it turned out they didn’t, but everyone in the world thought he had them.

The weapons inspectors said he had them. He catalogued—they catalogued them. This was not some, some Cheney, you know, pipe dream. This was, in fact, catalogued. They looked at them and catalogued. What he did with them, who knows? The real mystery is, if he, if he didn’t have any of them left, why didn’t he say so? Well, a lot of people say if he had said that, he would’ve, you know, emboldened Iran and so on and so forth.

Obama Admin pushes for tracking all cell phones

[T]he Obama administration has argued that warrantless tracking is permitted because Americans enjoy no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in their–or at least their cell phones’.

The question is not only whether the Fourth Amendment prohibits it, the question is where in the Constitution the Federal Government is given the power to do so and the answer is nowhere.

Socialized Health Care. A question of freedom. ‘The doctor’s fight against socialized medicine is your fight.’

Realize that the doctor’s fight against socialized medicine is your fight. We can’t socialize the doctors without socializing the patients. Recognize that government invasion of public power is eventually an assault upon your own business. If some among you fear taking a stand because you are afraid of reprisals from customers, clients, or even government, recognize that you are just feeding the crocodile hoping he’ll eat you last.

If all of this seems like a great deal of trouble, think what’s at stake. We are faced with the most evil enemy mankind has known in his long climb from the swamp to the stars. There can be no security anywhere in the free world if there is no fiscal and economic stability within the United States. Those who ask us to trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state are architects of a policy of accommodation.

Corp man is “Corpse man” according the President Obama and the Press “Corpse” ignores it.

If President Bush had said “corpse man” instead of “corps man” the press would have been all over it.  Instead the stenographers in Washington ignore it.  I should say, the “Press Corpse” in Washington ignores it.

How appropriate that the President would refer to them as the “Press Corpse” – they are dead to their jobs and let personal biases guide their reporting.
