just a thought....

so anyway, it occurred to me this evening that our old friend "BOHICA" can have yet another meaning. Yes, yes, I know, we've known and come to love the classic definition of the term "Bend Over, Here It Comes Again" but, as Spock would say, there are always possibilities.

Such as this: BOHICA - Barack Obama's Health Insurance Coverage Act. Different words, same result.

Fill in the blanks in the comments. More soon.

Sounds like a plan

I'm in

so anyway, via Mike of Cold Fury fame we find The Gunslinger's most excellent "We The People" Three Point Plan. A taste:

"We The People" is a non-partisan group of patriots who are extremely concerned by what is happening to our country before our very eyes.

We certainly blame Øbama and the Democrats. But we acknowledge that without the spineless, and often corrupt cooperation of the Career Republican Politicians, a lot of what has already gone wrong would not have happened.

Øbama may be the worst President in history, but he is standing on the shoulders of the avarice, ambition, greed, selfishness and corruption of many generations of grasping, out-of-touch, power-hungry, dirty-dealing, elitest, self-serving CAREER POLITICIANS of both parties. And what they have created, or allowed to be created under their noses has made possible Øbama's rushing freight train to perdition.
Read the whole thing.

Walter Cronkite, RIP

I'll refrain from using the obvious sub-title

so anyway, Walter Cronkite passed away this evening. He was 92.

For those of us of a certain age, Walter Cronkite was the face of the news during our formative years. Another little piece of our childhood has left and gone away.

That's some inspired siht, right there. More soon

A SupplySidePolitics Milestone

please excuse me whilst I say "woohoo!"

so anyway, sometime this evening, Supply Side Politics recorded it's 10,000th hit. Thank you very much to all of you who made this possible.

Sarah Palin goes "Galt"

soon to be known as the "Sarah? WTF?" post

so anyway, you could color me completely gobsmacked over the announcement Sarah Palin made this afternoon. In case you missed it, not only is she not going to seek reelection, she's stepping down at the end of the month.

Palin said she will formally step down July 26, and Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be inaugurated at the governor's picnic in Fairbanks. She said she had decided against running for re-election as Alaska's governor, and believed it was best to leave office even though she had two years left to her term.

"Many just accept that lame duck status, and they hit that road. They draw a paycheck. They kind of milk it. And I'm not going to put Alaskans through that," she said.

Whilst RSM is out chasing down another 200' of det cord and an extra case of RC Cola and Moon Pies for the Camp FUBAR extravaganza, Smitty is holding down the fort over at The Other McCain, and, as you'd expect, has the bestest round-up of reacts going.

Ace has also been opining on 'Cuda's announcement.

My thoughts are muddled at the moment. Upon initially hearing the news, my first thought was that now Governor Palin would be free to raise money, to inject herself in national issues, etc. TheMissus™ and her Mom (both "hopey-changy" types) are sure that there's some scandal that's about to break, forcing Gov. Palin to resign now.

I'm kind of in Ace's camp right now: I cannot see how this bodes well for Governor Palin to make a POTUS run in 2012. Even if Kristol is saying that she's "crazy, like a fox".

Smitty has some sobering thoughts:

Dude, pay attention: if BHO wins a second term, Michelle will be POTUS 2016-2024, a Constitutionally suitable consort to the older Obama daughter will rule from 2024-2032, when we switch back to the Obama dynasty proper. I say that and pray that I am wrong on a variety of levels.

Me too, Smitty. Frightening stuff.

Note to Self

just don't do it

so anyway, as I mentioned the other day on the soon-to-be-defunct other blog, I've finally gotten around to reading Rand's Atlas Shrugged. As I said over there:

".....so anyway, I finally got my hands on a copy of Atlas Shrugged, and I'm about 160 pages into it. I'm digging it deep.

I've been enjoying the hell out of this read, all the while kicking myself in the ass for waiting so long to actually read it."
It's really good, and I'm only about 10% through it.

Here's my small token of advise: if you're reading Atlas Shrugged (and digging it deep) DO NOT plug the phrase "Who is John Galt" into the search engine of your choice. There's no "spoiler alert" warning.

There was more, but it's gotten late early again. We'll have words again soon.
