I’m on my way to Atlanta for the annual mental health interpreter training institute and posting with my BB. Part of my continuing education as a blogger. Forgive the crude formatting. I will fix it when I get to a real computer.

Its not so nice when the shoe is on the other foot is it? Mark Steyn, who is always worth a read, throws the lefties motto back at them.
White House Moves To Restrict Criticism Of Stimulus Projects
But didn’t Jefferson say dissent is the highest form of stimulus.
Whoa! I know conservatives are totally frustrated but Ted Rall??? From his website:
It’s increasingly evident that Obama should resign
In practice, Obama wants to let government goons snatch you, me and anyone else they deem annoying off the street.
Obama has revealed himself. He is a monster, and he should remove himself from power.
When the Obamessiah loses a sycophant like Rall something big is happening.
I can’t believe the chutzpah of this guy… From Jack Trapper’s Political Punch blog on ABC News:
President Obama’s expressed hope today in his weekly address “that we can avoid the political posturing and ideological brinkmanship that has bogged down this (Supreme Court nomination) process, and Congress, in the past” runs against another historical first for the 44th president: his unique role in history as the first US President to have ever voted to filibuster a Supreme Court nominee.
In January 2006, then-Sen. Obama joined 24 colleagues in a futile effort led by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to filibuster the Supreme Court nomination of now-Justice Samuel Alito.
You have to read the whole thing… Sorry Barry, what’s good for the goose…
Matthew Franck, over at Bench Memos asks if Sotomayor will be held to the same standards as Roberts and Alito over membership in certain organizations.
“Democrats were very, very concerned about the association of John Roberts and Samuel Alito with that well-known extremist group, the Federalist Society. So we know they’ll be equally interested in Judge Sotomayor’s past (and present?) association with La Raza, right?”
Don’t hold your breath.
“Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!” Nikita Khrushchev thundered at the Polish embassy on November 18, 1956. It’s taken It’s taken nearly 53 years, but I fear he may yet be right. In the Pravda this priceless quote appeared last month.
“It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people. “

Over the past few years I have followed the work of Michael Yon, a photojournalist and one of the winners of the 2008 Blog Awards. He covered the war in Iraq and gave hope for success when the MSM had already decided the war was lost. Now he is in Afghanistan with his usual insight. What makes him so special is that he tells the story from the perspective of the GIs on the ground.
In Iraq, Yon was out with the combat troops, not sitting in a hotel in the “Green Zone.” If you honor our soldiers, you want to read his stuff over on his website.
