We Americans needed this weekend, with something to celebrate -- our independence from overseas oppressors. Indeed, the Tea Party movement is attempting to recapture the attitude of our nations founders toward overweening government, in this case our own. The distance from Washington to Main Street is not as great as that from Boston Harbor to the Palace of Westminster, but it is great indeed. Most Americans want to see spending reined in and taxes cut. But when the manager of a custard stand in Milwaukee suggested to Vice President Joe Biden that he would prefer lower taxes to payment for the desert he had just dished out, Biden told him not to be a smartass. That typifies the level of understanding the Obama administration, staffed largely with lifetime, risk-averse public-sector workers with little private-sector experience or exposure, has of struggling entrepreneurs. Mr. Obama
does not understand business
. He is interested in economics and technology; but not in how you make money, notes The Economist, a once- and-still supporter of the president.

Recovery for America doesn’t start until there is a depression in Washington.

NOW what do we celebrate? The socialism that has replaced our Constitutional heritage? The spiraling downward slope of our institutions? What is there to celebrate? I ask you.
Yes, I have my Flag waving, but what is left of our FF's noble cause? It's deteriorating every day.
So fly your Flags; cook your BBQ; have some beers, and next week Joe&Josephine-six-pack will go back to their apathy.

Certainly doesn’t feel like there’s much to celebrate, does it.

( I voted for McCain and still feel like I wasted my vote. Vote third party - same results.)
I am saving up until BO is gone for one Big CELEBRATION.
Right now I am so broke I can't pay attention. . . . . .

(At one time life was GOOD. That was before BO. Once he is gone it will be again. . .)
The Zero will be facing an angry Republican Congress in January 2011 at the rate things are going....

The Obama Administration looks like it’s operates more like a criminal enterprise than a governing body.

It looks like a criminal enterprise because it IS a criminal enterprise.
