A new year has come and an old one gone.

All in all it was a pretty darned good year.    Here’s to the next one being better – starting with the new congressional mixup makinig Obama’s life hell.

But before that, I want to win a million-dollar lottery.

Please God, let me prove to you that winning the lottery won’t spoil me…

I’ll try to get back into the posting and art and/or writing this year.  I’ve been awfully slack lately.


Can it get any stupider, this liberal understanding of the Constitution?  Source:  The Spokane Conservative…

Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein mocked Republicans for wanting to start the 112th Congress with a reading of the Constitution.

Klein told Norah O’Donnell, “The issue of the Constitution is that the text is confusing because it was written more than 100 years ago and what people believe it says differs from person to person and differs depending on what they want to get done.”

So, in Klein’s view, the Constitution is old and therefore confusing and apparently should be ignored, or translated in a way that supports liberal policy.
Klein also took issue with new rules requiring legislation be supported by the Constitution.  He told O’Donnell, “the new rules require every bill name its constitutional authority in the bill’s text and what I want to point out about that is that bills don’t normally do that now.”

But that is precisely the point, and it is partly why Republicans – many backed by the Tea Party – destroyed the Democrats in November’s election.

I’m sorry but I just don’t see November as having been a mandate or a slam-dunk.  A lot of things are still being taken for granted by the Republicans, who still seem a bit dazed and confused.  It’s like the Republicans keep showing up to a gun fight with a spoon.

Thank you, Joe Newby for your article…
