What Was The Old Hitler Song?

"Hitler...he's only got one..."

Dear Lord the knives are out for our dear leader:

Off color?  Sure!  But listen to the raucous laughter in the room.  You definitely get the sense that even the left knows they've screwed up with this one.  Maybe the fumes and humors are finally wearing off.  Welcome to the land of reality, where we've been ever since Barry burst on the stage.  Humor, as I have said often before, may be the best way to get rid of him.

United States of Don't Touch My Junk

Hat tip MS

We the sheeple are being beaten steadily into submission.  Will this be the one that finally pushes us over the edge?  How about a little profiling before we all have to submit to this privacy intrusion...speaking of that - where are the Feminists on this?  Isn't this a blatant invasion of our privacy?

Why do the liberals want to fight everyone BUT the bad guys? t

Rumbler Required Reading

Another random tour this week - there's so much to talk about!  Between the TSA gropes and GOP hopes, Pelosi's dopes and Bernanke's  tropes, it's been quite the week.  Let's get started.

1. In the afterglow of November 2, it is important that Republicans understand that they won only because the Democrats lost.  The "Architect," Karl Rove, provides some useful analysis in this piece from this morning's Wall Street Journal.

2. The Gift that keeps on giving!  Pelosi re-elected...'nuff said.  Apparently all was not happy in Donkeyland behind closed doors - read about it here.

3. Here's another angle on the enhanced pat downs for flying the friendly skies - the cost...and whose behind it.

4. Getting back to November 2, there are few voices of reason more succinct than Victor Davis Hanson - the thoughts of the maestro are here.

Democrat house of cards swept away...
5. QEII.  Seems that quite a few people don't subscribe to the "let's get inflation going" model.  Read the short open letter to "the Ben Bernanke" in the WSJ Economics blog.

Taiwanese Take on the TSA

They get it better than we do:

The terrorists have won.

Compare and Contrast

There were a lot of things I disagreed with W on, but one thing he was not short on was (and is) graciousness and an unflinching sense of the dignity of the office.  I haven't gotten to the book yet, but I have watched several interviews of the former President and his humility and love of country are fully on display.  He refuses to take aim at the current administration despite the incessant blame thrown his way by you-know-who.  Class versus class-less.

Required Rumbler Reading

I've been a little busy of late, but thought it was time to get my readers caught up on some fine reading.  These selections, as always, are gleaned from the finest the web has to offer.

1. On to the White House.  I always enjoy our British cousins' perspectives on affairs American...and Lexington is a fine blogger and columnist for the Economist.  This is his perspective on what lies ahead for the GOP.

2. How the Democrats Shellacked Themselves.  Be still my beating heart...I heartily, deeply, profoundly recommend ALL democrats and liberals read this and follow this advice!  Really, all you Progressives, this guy has it right and you MUST follow his prescription.  For the sentient members of my audience, it has been said that to understand liberals you must view them as if they were an alien species.  This article is Exhibit A.  (Hat tip EH)

3. A  Twenty First Century GOP.  I had this in my "Read it Later" stack, so it pre-dates last week's election.  Nevertheless, I think it offers some excellent advice for the GOP.  Please remember, dear reader, I hold no party loyalty.  I continue to be a constitutional conservative, but the Elephants are closer to my leanings and less insane than the loony alien left.

4. Environmentalism as Religion.  We have opined often in these pages how Environmentalists have substituted their environmentalism for a sense of the divine.  They are lost souls in search of something to  believe.  Many of them used to believe in the utopian dream of the Soviet Union till that went onto something green!  This is a great column that supports our theory.

5. The Great U-Turn.  James Bennett's pre-election piece gives a lot of context to what just happened.

Yes, Even for the Rich

We have now entered the era of "compromise" if you are a Democrat.  The Bush Tax Cuts are set to expire, so the "compromise" that will no doubt be put forth by Barry O and the gang will be "let's keep the tax cuts for everyone BUT the rich."  Sounds soooo reasonable...come on you mean Republicans, play along!

No, don't.  As this poll illustrates, the American people understand economics a whole lot better than the numbskulls in Washington.  Small business people, you know the folks who create the jobs, are the ones hardest hit by this...let's pray after the explosion of this Tuesday past that we make the tax cuts permanent for EVERYONE.  Alexis de Tocqueville said it best: "Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom."  All men are created with equal opportunity, and that opportunity should be protected with our blood and treasure...not all will achieve equal outcome, and that too must be defended.

China as a Regional or World Power

My NROTC Alumni Association hosted their second Security Symposium at our reunion last week - the subject was "China: A Regional or World Power."  This is a fascinating discussion between some of the top experts in the business and well worth a listen.  Click on the video by clicking here.
