Tweets of the Week

...culled from Twitter for week ending February 9, 2013. Follow these folks on twitter! (Feel free to follow me, too, while you're at it!)

  • @BreitTwit1 Economically illiterate President gets to preach virtues of economic illiteracy to his functionally illiterate fans. With drones on standby.

There've been some great tweets in response to the release by the White House of a picture of the President skeet shooting in August of 2012 under the hashtag #NextWhiteHousePhoto! The skeet shooting photo, by the way, has some obvious issues. Many shooters point out that, unless the President is after the skeet prior to its launch, the aim is all wrong (though one tweeter, tongue in cheek, claimed that was because the image was Photoshopped from a picture taken the night Obama got Osama bin Laden). It's also been noted that the shotgun apparently is venting only out of the right side. Another shooter points out that there's no evidence of a recoil in the image and wonders aloud if the White House Photoshopper forgot it. And then there's the White House warning to anybody (else?) who might think about Photoshopping the already amusing image...

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty!

There's a lot going on in Washington and elsewhere these days, and almost none of it is good. Vigilance has never been more critical, and our failure to take actions as warranted will almost certainly never have more lasting and detrimental consequences.We are now quite literally at a crossroads in the life of this country. If we turn one direction, we can retain and restore freedom; if we turn the other, we will lose liberty, almost certainly forever. Which road will you take?

Why act? Why now?

Perhaps history has seen darker days, but in several generations, we have not. We face an activist judiciary inclined to re-interpret rather than interpret the Constitution, and so re-write law. We have a president who all too often disregards the Constitution altogether. We see the nationalization of industry and the financial sector, overregulation all too often intended to stymie growth and increase government dependence, and the socialism of healthcare (despite denials, we all know better, don't we?). We see unprecedented government growth which will almost certainly result in unprecedented tax burdens some of which are already imminent thanks to "Obamacare." And there's worse...

If I'm lucky, by what I do here I might help to preserve liberty. And if I'm not, I will at least go down fighting. I humbly ask that you join me in those endeavors. The worst thing that we could possibly do is nothing...
