Musings from the Mayor of the Internet


Awesome Representative of the week

Ever seen a congressman kick this much ass?

Now you have. And his name is Thaddeus.

Thanks to Cato for that one.

Tyranny 0, Liberty 1

I’d like to thank the 228 decent and honest members of the House of Representatives for refusing to turn the United States into a socialist dictatorship. My own representative, of course, is a typical big-government leftist twit, and voted in favour of the bill, but, hey. A win’s a win.

Not that I’m stupid enough to believe that we won’t see this same bullshit pop up again next week with a different name. Because we will. But defeating it once is better than not defeating it at all.

And, of course, exactly as expected, the mainstream media is busy trying to paint this as a case of the noble Democrats being stymied in their heroism by those horrible Republicans and their secret agendas. Not that I’m accusing the mainstream media of being a bunch of Democratic party mouthpieces. Certainly not that. I mean, when was the last time you can recall these nonpartisan news outlets stumping for bigger, more expensive, more powerful government? I don’t think that’s ever happened ever in the whole history of the whole history.

So again, kudos to the 228 members of the House who acted in the interest of the taxpayers and not in the interest of increasing their own power. And I’d suggest that everybody take some time to spot which of the 205 would-be tyrant assholes you’re responsible for and take steps to disenfranchise those sniveling nitwits. Since, if you recall, they’re all eligible for replacement in one short month.
