Massachusetts, you made us proud. You have destroyed Pelosi’s ability to ram health care insurance deformation down our throats.
All we can say, here at O-t-c, is “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Massachusetts, you made us proud. You not only voted for Scott Brown, but you did so with such ferocity that it was an ACORN-SEIU-proof vote. No Black Panthers could stop this train. No SEIU thugs could beat you into submission. None of the President’s minions could stop We the People.
As in the formative days of this country, Massachusetts, you have led the way!
What a difference a day makes. It almost – not quite – makes us think about retiring this blog! Of course, that would be premature. We cannot rest until the Obama-Pelois-Reid hydra is removed from the seats of power and America can once again breathe free.
But what a night! What a night.
This is a tale of the 2 Joes. One was a bad Joe. He would biden his time, waiting for the Messiah to be dumber than him. Never happened.
Then there’s the tale of the Good Joe. He had the chutzpah to tell the Messiah and his Nevadic minion Reid to take a hike on their health care schemes to bankrupt the nation.
Do it some more, Joe. Do it some more. Your nation is calling and the American people thank you (hey – if the Messiah can ventriloquize in the voice of the American people, so can we) from the bottom of their hearts for being the speedbump in the Messiah’s evil plans.
We would love to have coffee with you one day.
All of us at O-t-c love Morgan Freeman’s body of work as an actor. Some of us think he is among the finest actors alive today.
We did not know until this evening that we also adore his way of thinking about matters of race.
We discovered this in a somewhat ciruitous way. Some of us saw the movie 2012 yesterday. Eye-candy and nothing more. Freeman is not in that movie. But he is in a movie that was previewed: Invictus, coming out in less than a month (Dec. 9th), a story about Nelson Mandella and a game of rugby that “changed a nation.” While reading a bit about that in Wikipedia, we then turned our attention to its star, Morgan Freeman.
Here is the part in Wikipedia that we so admire: Freeman has publicly criticized the celebration of Black History Month and does not participate in any related events, saying, “I don’t want a black history month. Black history is American history.” He says the only way to end racism is to stop talking about it, and he notes that there is no “white history month”. Freeman once said on an interview with 60 Minutes’ Mike Wallace: “I am going to stop calling you a white man and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.” Freeman supported the defeated proposal to change the Mississippi state flag, which contains the Confederate battle flag.”
We can’t begin to say how much we admire someone who could hide behind a protected status conferred by liberal bigots and liberal racists (like President Obama and Eric Holder – indeed most liberals), but chooses to play on the exact same playing field as other Americans. Here is a man who didn’t have to throw away his hyphen, but he did it. He liberated himself from the shackles of liberalism and thinks like his last name: as a Free Man.
Mr. Freeman, we would be honored to share a beer or a cup of coffee with you. Why? Partly because of your stand, but also for your willingness as a celebrity to make your stand public. We salute you, Mr. Freeman.
Let freedom ring and reign supreme!
While it’s all still preliminary, it appears that the conservatives are having a good day with this election cycle. All we can cautiously say is: Hooray!
We want to send a special salute to the following people, in order of importance:
- James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles (with honorable mention to Andrew Breitbart & Company and FoxNews) – You two are heroes in our book. Because of you, Acorn was sidelined. In close elections, Acorn could be counted on to be a difference-maker in terms of phony-baloneyism. You two did the hard work and with the help of Breitbart and FoxNews, you put enough heat on Congress to kill their funding. The power of this cannot be overstated. It’s huge. Kudos and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
- The Town Hall attendees and the Tea Party folks – You have taken the tactics of the Left, and applied them – with class and style – to speak truth to power. May we continue on our way. May this be a harbinger of things to come.
- FoxNews – not just for being fair and balanced – but for bringing stories that truly showed Americans of all stripes how sycophantic other so-called newspuppy organizations are. While they were content to be patted on the heads and be told, “Good girl! Good girl!,” you faced the ire of the White House, you took the slings and arrows of others in the media, until the White House overreached even beyond the point the that “good girls” could accept (when they tried to cut FoxNews from the pool), and they were shamed into supporting the First Amendment instead of their fearless leader.
- Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingram, Michelle Malkin, and the raft of others in talk radio, the blogosphere, etc.
The current has not yet fully turned. And we don’t know how Obama and his evil Witch in the attic, Pelosi will take this election. So we’re not celebrating just yet. And we are also still very mindful of how the GOP sided with what’s her face – Scozzafava – until it became clear to all that she was no conservative – should never have been the Republican nominee.
We hope the GOP has learned from this that they need to be true to the core of conservatism; otherwise there will be a third party for conservatives who have felt for a very long time that they’ve had no real political home.
But tentatively, this is a very good night indeed.
