Democrats on steriods...

... spending yours and your childrens' and your childrens' childrens' money by creating it (borrowing it) out of thin air. With no attempt at fiscal responsibility to the present or future taxpayers, the Dems put into high gear the destruction of the dollar via a reckless inflation of the money supply.

Another chart from Policy Watch:

Obama: The 100 day mark...

How are we feeling about the course set by our new President? Getting a little nervous?

Santa Barbara Tea Party Pt. 2...

In addition to the videos of the previous post, here are some photos:

Santa Barbara Tea Party...

Below are 4 very short videos I took of the Tea Party in Santa Barbara as it gathered in front of the IRS on Anacapa.

Everyone gathered at Alameda Park (Sola St. a & Anacapa St.) at 1:00 PM and then march down one block the IRS office building to hold the party. I guess there were four to five hundred people in attendance with police directing traffic. A number of cars, as they passed by, were honking in support. Different individuals got up and addressed the crowd extemporaneously, explaining their complaints and concerns with Washington D.C.'s handling of the current financial downturn and the ever growing power and control of the federal government. The crowd was cheering and chanting slogans against high taxes, run away federal spending, and the fed's heavy hand, all in an orderly fashion. I couldn't stay long as I had to get back to work. But all in all it was heartening to see so many turn out here in a city that overwhelmingly voted for Obama and the Democrats last fall.

an Easter hymn...


In the morning light
Radiance of his face
There in glory bright
His shadow I can trace

I bow down on bended knee
I bow down, bow down before him

He, my filthy rags
Turned to garments white
Thus my heart was freed
From the soul’s dark night

I bow down on bended knee
I bow down, bow down before him

Middle Refrain:
Emptied himself, became a man
Humbly served, poured out in love
On the cross, he bore our sin
His name now far above all

When the evening comes
And the night draws near
In his word he speaks
Truth and grace I hear

I bow down on bended knee
I bow down, bow down before him

Smiley face diplomacy...

Abe Greenwald, in a post at Commentary (Don’t Think They’re Not Keeping Score, Mr. President) draws attention to what has become an Obama obsession and a real security concern for the U.S.

Greenwald's key point:
We’re in uncharted territory. Never - the Carter years included - has an American administration been so deliberate and thorough in spreading the word of an America with its guard down. If you’re Moscow or Pyongyang or Tehran, it’s a free-for-all. No one is minding the store. Take what you want, work in groups, work in shifts, pretend you’re law-abiding or be brazenly criminal. You’ll get the same “have a nice day” from the shopowner either way.
