Love your tagline. Have you read “A Nation of Sheep” by Napolitano? Frighteningly enlightening.

Thanks for posting this.

I, too, resent the professional pols who never spent one sleepless night wondering how they’d meet payroll. Every member of the MSM should be forced to start his/her own online blog as their only source of income, then see what it’s like to be a small businessman.

IIRC he was partner in a B&B that went bankrupt.

That sounds right, I think.

On the reverse side of that sentiment, let’s encourage 0bama supporters to drive with their light OFF, all the time! After all, isn’t 0bama the “light” in their lives?

This busines man is a Godsend like thousands and thousands of others. He is being blessed by God and through his example is blessing others. God, please preserve us from the Democrats and especially from Mr. Obama. If not, then make us strong to be your witness to what you can do through people who appreciate what You have given. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Obviously Colombia (the country) and not Columbia (the university).

WRONG: George McGovern has actually come out against “Card Check” union recognition, saying that it is an affront to democracy.

Yesterday, they (Biden and Obama) lowered those numbers, twice! First to $200,000 and then to $150,000.

Cory Millers story: I read it. I can relate to what he went through, but he made it, he has a payroll over $5M a year and now he is a whiner, after all his hard work, he moans and whines that his employees want more money. I don’t think he understands that paying his taxes is a “privilege” so our great country can continue its winding course, some years good some years bad, good leaders and bad leaders, love it or leave it Cory, don’t whine. dave

Mr. Cory the Well Driller, I think we should raise money and get a half hour spot on Sunday prime-time TV and have you read your letter on national TV for all of America to tune in and watch. That would shake up the nation. This letter would reach millions if it had the right kind of coverage. You are an American Hero. I admire you for the Blood, Sweat and Tears you have given our country. Kudos for your brave words. From a Western New Yorker

I lived in Finland for 27 years and watched all the horrors of “wealth redistribution” in action as the country had already sunk into the muddy waters of socialism induced apathy and economical sluggishness complete with 15+ yr recession.

Welfare State system sucks on many levels ranging from psychological to economical. Plus it is a bastard; you cannot unite socialism and capitalism. The combo doesn't work and it has to be either or.

I watched the Finnish Social-Democrats go after my dad as a business owner and killing his efforts with taxes and the man was the hardest working guy you know (three-fold the effort than some Union fat face commie-mobster) and we had nothing extra in materialistic terms, I grew up in public schools that were manned by (surprise!) Social-Democratic teachers who tried to drill their damned views on us as little kids and if you disagreed you were out of the circle with sanctions, and I loved to be a # in a hospital and not have a word to say over my treatment.

Is this really what these Obama Dems want? I don't think so. I think they are just illusioned and misinformed. American Liberal Media writes all the time crap like “for a modest tax hike Finland offers free education, medicare, and other social services.”

WHAT EFFING MODEST TAX (my bro is an electrician and pays over 40% income tax, 22% VAT on everything, except food is 18% VAT, cars have 120% VAT, gasoline has 120% VAT and costs $10 / gallon, do I need to continue??? Good lord!)??? WHAT EFFING FREE SERVICES (the pure notion of saying that something is free is misleading SOCIALIST propaganda — I payed WAY more for my “heavenly” Finnish social services than what I pay for my private health care insurance here in the USA — GOD BLESS HER TOO!!!)??? I honestly had an urge to strangle that reporter. I suffered 27 yrs and it is too long of a time to have some Washington D.C. pencil neck reporter write that crap about Finland and make her look like a damned paradise!!! That man should be ashamed of himself and the uneducated view that he portrayed in his article for the hungry, young, and hip American socialists.

I honestly recommend any and all American aspiring socialists to go and live in either Finland or Sweden for prolonged time: that will cure your naive enthusiasm pretty effectively. Unless you kill yourself of course. Oh, you didn't know that the “social paradise” has one, if not the, highest suicide rates. And don't you even dare to say it's the weather — I lived there goddammit! It has nothing to do with the damned weather — it's the system that sucks the daylight out of you!
