The John Galt Society

It can be discouraging to look around at who's running the show these days and wonder "Where have all the grown-ups gone?"

Take heart. There are still some people who are not drinking the Kool-aid. Here's where to find them. I would suggest going gown this list every day and printing off the most recent articles you haven't read to read over lunch.

Michelle Malkin
Michelle Malkin is a feisty conservative bastion. You loved her book "Unhinged" and you can read her columns here.
Ann Coulter

Ann posts her new column every Thursday, or you can browse her past columns.
George Will
What can you say? It's George Will. Read it.
Charles Krauthammer posts every Friday. Just a good, smart conservative columnist.
If you want someone who gets it just as right, but is easier to read, try Thomas Sowell, who just posts at random times.
Jonah Goldbert seldom disappoints.
David Limbaugh carries on the family tradition.

Jewish World Review has all these guys plus lots more good stuff.

Or you can go to radio show sites like
 Laura Ingraham's or Glenn Beck's or Rush Limbaugh's..

If you'd like you can study The Constitution while you wait.

Then there's always TownHall.com, NewsMax.com, The Drudge Report, FreeRepublic.com, World Net Daily, (which Medved calls World Nut Daily), News Busters, or National Review Online.

For the Lighter Appetite

If you have to read the news, I recommend The Nose on Your Face, news so fake you'd swear it came from the Mainstream Media. HT to Sid for the link.
Or there's always The Onion. (For the benefit of you Obama Supporters, it's a spoof.)

Dave Barry's Column
Daryl Cagle's Index of Political Cartoons
About half of these cartoonists are liberal (Latin for wrong) but the art is usually good. (Fantastic, if you're used to the quality of art on this site.)

Or just follow the links above and to the right of this section (you can't have read all my archived articles already). If you have read all my articles (you need to get out more) go to my I'm Not Falling For It section.

Above all, try to stay calm. Eventually I may post something again.

Today's Second Amendment Message

Earlier Blogs

But if it were true . . ."

Here's an interesting statistic: Al Sharpton is a despicable piece of crap.

I guess, technically that’s not a statistic, but if it were it would be an interesting statistic.

Al Sharpton, Tax Cheat, asked "Is it fair that millionaires pay a lower tax rate than their own secretaries?” When he was told that millionaires don't pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries and the IRS confirms that, he dismissed it, saying that the average American taxpayer pays around 30%.

Again, that is just plain not true. The average American taxpayer (that actually pays taxes—47% of American wage earners don't) pays less than 12%. Which, if you're keeping score, is substantially less than Mitt Romney pays. Because your deductions are so much higher compared to your income, you pay a lower tax rate than even those who pay capital gains.

But Sharpton wouldn't let it go. He kept citing the "statistic" and kept being refuted. Finally—I am not making this up—he asked "If those statistics that I reported are true, is it fair?"

If Eva Mendez couldn't go five minutes without ravaging my body, would that be cool?

No, if what I'm reporting is true . . . if . . . I'm just saying 'if' . . . just answer the question . . . don't . . . why are you getting hung up on . . . just answer the question.

Does. Not. Matter. That condition does not exist in any known Universe.

Does anyone still wonder why I despise democrats?

Try This
Here's a simple test: Try to imagine Newt Gingrich as president of the United States. No, just try it. Try to imagine that cherubic face full of saw tooth chompers running the United States of American.

Can't be done, Vern.

Obama Fixes the Keystone Pipeline

Phil Hendrie Lives
"I'm voting for Ron Paul because he wants to abolish the Federal Reserve . . ."

So far, so good. But the caller to the Glenn Beck program still hadn't finished his first sentence. " . . . and he wants to legalize marijuana . . . " okay, warning lights starting to glow just a bit " . . . and he's going to get rid of the Zionist occupation government."

There it is!

The call was now a lot more interesting, but it was about to get better. After Stu and Pat jumped the guy about his anti-Semitism, he said that people need to read "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."

Does it get any more clear than that? I was a little surprised the guy tipped his hand so quickly. I would have expected him to string the guys along a little more before revealing his technique—just gradually get more irrational to let them ease into the idea that he was putting them on.

But to go directly to "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion?" Really removes any doubt, way too early in the call, in my opinion.

Now, you know that Stu is the smartest guy on the Glenn Beck show. But Stu is a busy guy; he probably doesn't have time to Listen to the Phil Hendrie show. That's why he didn't make the connection that I immediately made: This caller was not a Ron Paul supporter. This caller was a detractor, trying to make Ron Paul supporters look like fools (and doing a very good job, by the way).

He went on about how the Jews controlled the media and the banks and were responsible for all the wars. They still didn't clue in. I seriously, honestly expected them to ask him "Wait a minute. Is this Mel Gibson?" It sounded like the caller was reading a transcript of Gibson's drunken rant. Anyone who spouts that kind of idiocy is clearing caricaturing to make a point. The job of the host is to play along.

But you know how hard it is for a person to deviate from a belief once it's in his head. Pat and Stu kept refuting all the guy's nonsense, not realizing that he was on their side, called him an anti-Semite again and again, and finally hung up on him. It was a lost opportunity.

Whose side are you on?
I'm certain that those two have come across this before. They have to have, since I, with my severely limited experience, come across it all the time.

I told you about that guy on Facebook who posted an article about the debt ceiling battle, commenting that "Republicans have always wanted to destroy America's economy." Since the article clearly showed what idiots the democrats are, and since no real human being believes that Republicans gain anything from destroying the economy , I figured the guy was on my side. I played along, saying something about those nasty Republicans and . . .

Come to think of it, that moron really was a democrat . . . so maybe that episode makes the case in defense of Stu and Pat.

If I were clever—a condition that would cause the Universe to go spinning off its axis—I would pose as a democrat here and just post the nonsense they believe. That would better further my ends.

My defense of conservatism is winning no converts. Those who agree with me just nod their heads, and those who don't just scurry over to the Huffington Post or Media Matters.

If I were to pose as a democrat and spout the idiocy that the puppet masters have convinced them they believe, everyone who read it would be repelled from those views, driven toward the light.

Keep on trying
That incident happened last week while Glenn was out with a back injury. Yesterday, right at the end of the hour, the same guy called in to the Dennis Miller Show.

This time he hit it in a different order: Legalize marijuana, then abolishing the Federal Reserve, then he got to the Zionist occupation government.

Same guy, I swear it was. Dennis, gentle soul that he is, said something like "You've got some real race issues, Brother, you need to get help."

My gosh I wish Phil Hendrie were still on in this market. I would love to hear that guy when he makes it down the list to him.

I think we may be witnessing a rift in the Matrix. Ten minutes I listened to the radio yesterday, what are the odds I would hear the same caller?

That Pesky Constitution

When Guns are Outlawed
Here is a sad story. Some lunatic killed a park ranger.
Anderson had set up a roadblock Sunday morning to stop a man who had blown through a checkpoint rangers use to check if vehicles have tire chains for winter conditions. A gunman opened fire on her before she was able to exit her vehicle, authorities say . . . Park superintendent Randy King said Anderson, a 34-year-old mother of two young girls who was married to another Rainier ranger, had served as a park ranger for about four years.
Very sad. That's a horrible deal; a terrible tragedy and a waste. But the story goes on:
The shooting renewed debate about a federal law that made it legal for people to take loaded weapons into national parks. The 2010 law made possession of firearms subject to state gun laws.

Bill Wade, the outgoing chair of the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees, said Congress should be regretting its decision.

"The many congressmen and senators that voted for the legislation that allowed loaded weapons to be brought into the parks ought to be feeling pretty bad right now," Wade said.

Wade called Sunday's fatal shooting a tragedy that could have been prevented. He hopes Congress will reconsider the law . . . but doubts that will happen in today's political climate.

'Cause you know that a murderer would never take a loaded gun into a park if it were against the law . . .

Gentle as a kitten
Obama being lion-tamed

That's Not What I Said
When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the Nation I helped conceive?"

Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed."

James Madison followed, kicked him and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!"

Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence."

The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the radical socialist leader.

As Obama lay curled up in pain, an angel appeared. Obama wept and said, "This is not what you promised me."

The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 VIRGINIANS waiting for you in Heaven. You really need to learn to listen!"
