In The Name of God, go!

Oliver Cromwell Speech - Dissolution of the Long Parliament

Dissolution of the Long Parliament by Oliver Cromwell given to the House of Commons, 20 April 1653

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

Welcome To The Tea Party

I couldn't make it to any of the protests today but as I read about them, I longed for something to do. And it came to me. I'm going to send my representatives tea bags. Just an unused tea bag with a note saying "Welcome to the tea party." If you knew who my representatives are you'd know they don't care. They're inebriated with this sudden power being conferred on them by the Commander in Thief.

(I love this photo of historic tea bags. It looks like we're going to a hangin'.)

I Am A Kulak!

Yes. I was dispirited to say the least after the election and the inauguration. Things have rapidly gone from bad to worse. Obama is on an Alinksky timetable attempting to make things happen before we know the coup has taken place.

But Americans are a different breed. We have self-selected from all over the world because the foundations of America resonated with our hearts, our souls, our spirits. The disenchantment with the Hope (no one notices we're) Change (ing to socialism) Presidency (My God, how could this possibly have happened?) has begun.

I recommend you visit William Jacobson's blog to learn more.

Tea, anyone?

Bailout Mascot

Well. When you start getting things like this in your email, you know someone was upset.
