 Democrats Exempt Big Labor Benefactors from Legislation Abridging Freedom of Speech

Reminding us again that the fight to protect individual freedom against politicians intoxicated by their own power and self-righteousness is a never-ending one, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) have introduced legislation (supported by the Obama White House, of course) reimposing the same type of First Amendment restrictions that the U.S. Supreme Court recently declared unconstitutional. In other words, their response to having free speech limitations overturned by the Supreme Court is to roll the same rock back up the same hill.

But note one big-spending group that Schumer and Van Hollen suspiciously omitted from their prohibition: labor bosses.

 The Country – Not the GOP – is Moving to the Right

Liberal journalists – a fraternity for whom indignation is proof of sentience – believed they had found just cause to be aghast last week in the nation’s fourth largest state. Deeming themselves the keepers of political Wisdom, the chattering class bayed at the news that Florida Governor Charlie Crist is leaving the Republican Party to continue his pursuit of a seat in the U.S. Senate as an Independent.

The mainstream media laments the Crist defection as only the most recent sign that the conservative movement – smelling blood in the wake of the declining popularity of liberal government – is in the midst of an ideological purge.

Hogwash.

 The Government War on the American Diet

“My body, my choice” worked for abortion advocates, but that does not seem to apply to the American diet. Federal and local governments for years have told us what we should and should not put into our bodies. Whether it’s alcohol or cigarettes, saturated or trans fat, sugar or salt, legislators and regulators pick things off our table because they think they know better.

Ronald McDonald better watch his back. The government is gunning for him and all of his little toy friends, too.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

Fred Barnes, Executive Editor of The Weekly Standard, On Force-Feeding the Liberal Agenda:

“President Reagan had a sign on his desk that said, ‘It’s amazing how much you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.’ If President Obama had a sign, it would say, ‘It’s amazing how much you can accomplish if you don’t care what the public thinks.’

“Washington has never been held in lower esteem by Americans than it is today. Yet those in control of Washington — President Obama and congressional Democrats — are bent on enacting a series of sweeping domestic policy changes this year that have one thing in common: They are unpopular, in whole or in part.

“This is unprecedented and a bit weird too. A revival of civility and an end to the ugly political polarization in Washington — goals stressed by Mr. Obama in his presidential campaign and again last Saturday in a speech at the University of Michigan — won’t be furthered by passage of an unpopular agenda. A more likely result is years of partisan resentment and bitter fighting over efforts by Republicans to repeal the unwanted policies.”

“So Greece has cultural problems that contributed to its economic implosion. But there are similarities to the U.S. as well — and because we have elected Democrats, they are growing. By the end of 2011, Greece’s debt will be 150 percent of its GDP. According to a March report by the Congressional Budget Office, President Obama’s 2011 budget will generate nearly $10 trillion in cumulative…[more]

Ted Nugent Toasts the Tea Party

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up amidst the travails of the Gulf oil disaster, Greek riots, and technologically crazed financial markets, check out Ted Nugent’s recent commentary praising the Tea Party movement.

This glorious experiment in self-government is not supposed to be a spectator sport as it has been reduced to for so long. As the boss of government, we the people were supposed to stay in touch with politics and politicians, making sure our will was the force behind policies and law making.

Remember that? The Tea Party Americans do, and we are demanding its return immediately. The New Deal was a raw deal and the Great Society was for losers. A hand out creates the curse of dependency. A hand up is nationalism at its finest.

This tribute to liberty is required reading for anyone in search of some good, rock-ribbed conservative truths told as only a Great American like Ted Nugent can.
