Happy Holidays! Now, Bend OverPosted Saturday, December 29, 2012, at 8:48 AM
Perhaps it is because the Old Media is dutifully fulfilling their obligation as mouthpiece of the State by distracting Boobus Americus with the Fiscal Cliff boondoggle. This tall tale has all the necessary ingredients to promote some temporary righteous indignation in a citizenry that is easily amused: the duopoly parties acting like they don't get along, a cocky president assuring his children that "all is well" from a swank hotel in Hawaii, the wealthiest demographic in world history whining about loss of benefits, the military squawking about national security...
What is conveniently never mentioned is the fact that the duopoly parties (including the MO-8th's beloved CONgress Critter -- Jo Ann Emerson) set the table for the ominous Fiscal Cliff by playing another round of the new national pastime, Kick the Can, through the creation of the "Super Congress" in August, 2011 as an act of contrition for raising the debt ceiling again. The Prez signed this legislation with gusto. I guess the road isn't as long and winding as the usual gang of idiots believes it to be.
Anyhow, while you were sleeping, your puppy was crapping. In defiance of the Fourth Amendment, the Senate found time to extend warrantless wiretapping and the interception of electronic communication using the Gift That Keeps on Giving: the Patriot Act, as justification. It is all about priorities.
Details of Sen. Feinstein's upcoming victim disarmament legislation were leaked, and include such popular measures as the registration and fingerprinting of every single gun owner in the Land of the Free.
Not to be outshined, the Prez decided through fiat executive order to give all of our fine public servants in the employ of the Galactic Imperial Empire a pay raise. Merry Christmas one and all!
The 2012 holiday season is shaping up to be one of the most "productive" ever in Washington DC. Here's to hoping that 2013 brings awareness that the State is our common enemy, and that we do something about it.

I was born in Cape Girardeau, Mo., in 1972, and grew up in the Chaffee area where I still reside with my lovely wife and three beautiful and talented daughters. I have been employed in the paper industry for the past 14 years and am a member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church. In my spare time I support my local parochial school, listen to and perform music, and read. This is my second run for U.S. Congress as the Libertarian Party candidate. In 2010 I was endorsed by the Boston Tea Party and received an "A" rating from the Gun Owners of America. Since my last campaign I supported the opposition to the smoking ban in Cape Girardeau, gathered signatures for the Show-Me Cannabis initiative, was elected to the Missouri State Libertarian Party Executive Committee, and recently won the Champion of Freedom Award. I hope that my candidacy helps to advance the cause of individual liberty. I welcome your questions and comments. Thank you for reading!
