Skip to comments.A Call To The First 2000 names in the Boston Phone Book, Your Country Needs You Now

William F. Buckley stated that he would rather be governed by the first 2000 names in the Boston phone book rather than 2000 professors of Harvard. Well Bill, the time is now. We have met the faculty and from the past five years, we believe they should stick to their lounges, worn sport jackets and pony tails, and their pastime of mutual admiration.
Theory has met reality and theory loses.
Warm and fuzzy but inapplicable, unrealistic, and uncalculated is Obamacare. Accounting magic, front loaded costs, double counting hundreds of millions of dollars and all to make the bird fly. It is out of the nest now, but there is no air under its wings.
How many millions have been wasted, are being wasted, and will be wasted to resurrect this bungled and theoretically contrived monstrosity?
Obama and his minions shout through the media megaphone that the 16 day slow down of the Federal government was an ill conceived, destructive, divisive and hateful exercise by the Republicans. In reality it was a failed attempt to rescue the Nation.
The Republican attempt to shield the nation from Obamacare deserves applause
The demonization of the Republicans for shutting down (slowing down) the federal government now rings false and disjointed. Can the citizenry discover the gravity of this without guidance from the media?
Rewritten by the circumvention of constitutionality, rephrased and redefined by a labored Supreme Court ruling, and implemented selectively by politically granted waivers, any efforts to defund Obamacare should be applauded.
But, apparently it is good to leave a nation in a condition in which its people are entirely confused about their healthcare insurance costs and coverage. And apparently it is bad to attempt to prevent such a disastrous occurrence as noted by the damnation that has met the Republican efforts.

Boston? Hell no, not even.
Ottumwa, Iowa maybe, but not Boston........
I agree with the principle expressed by Mr. Buckley - but there is NO WAY I would agree to be governed by 2000 people from Boston.
Haha. We’re not all liberals here.
Yeah, but y’all talk funny...
At least get the quote correct:
I’d rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.
William F. Buckley, Jr.
“Yeah, but yall talk funny...”
Haha. You should hear me talk. I had a guy from England tell me I had the strongest Boston accent he’d ever heard. Let me repeat, he was from England!!
What is a phone book?
