What if We Want to be Invisible to Our Government?

Here’s a recent Hillary Clinton campaign ad. I post this not to make you ill, but to later examine what she’s really saying here:

Here’s the transcript for the dial-up challenged:

Mrs. Clinton says, “As I travel around America, I hear from so many people who feel like they’re just invisible to their government.”

A male narrator says, “Hillary Clinton has spent her life standing up for people others don’t see.”

Mrs. Clinton says: “You know, if you’re a family that is struggling, and you don’t have health care, well you are invisible to this president. If you’re a single mom trying to find affordable child care so you can go to work, well, you’re invisible too. And I never thought I would see that our soldiers who serve in Iraq and Afghanistan would be treated as though they were invisible as well. Americans from all walks of life across our country may be invisible to this president, but they’re not invisible to me, and they won’t be invisible to the next president of the United States. I’m Hillary Clinton, and I approve this message.”

Hillary’s big campaign theme will continue to be that you will no longer be invisible to your government. Well I don’t doubt it — she’s got our FBI files and a hell of a bright flashlight.

What does this “you won’t be invisible to me” rhetoric really say?

To me it says this: “We will know where you are, what you’re doing, what you’re eating, what you’re drinking, who your doctor is, what you’re smoking, where you’re sending your kids to school and what kind of car you’re driving.”

I want a president who appreciates my desire to remain invisible to my government, and Hillary certainly ain’t it.

If the Hsu Fits, Nat'l Health Care or Death, and Quotes From the Clooney Bin

Three quick stories to cover this morning as we Americans celebrate Labor Day by doing no labor whatsoever.

Don’t Judge the Clintons Until You Walk a Mile in Their Hsus

Bill Clinton was shocked — shocked I tell you — that Norman Hsu, a major Hillary donor, turned out to be a wanted felon:

“You could have knocked me over with a straw, especially when I heard the L.A. people had been allegedly looking for him for 15 years when he was in plain view,” he told Newsday while touring a county fair in rural New Hampshire Sunday.

Bill Clinton hasn’t been knocked over with a straw since he startled brother Roger by sneaking up behind him in the laundry room of his single-wide while he was hunched over a mirror.

I’m the opposite of Bill. I would have been shocked if Hsu wasn’t a felon.

From the Clooney bin:

Actor George Clooney says that Barack Obama is like a rock star.

This makes my decision easy. I can’t think of any rock stars that I want to be president either. Thanks George.

Take care of your health or we’ll kill you!

Finally, John Edwards has released the details of his health care plan, which includes mandatory doctor visits. You will be healthy and happy, or you will go to jail where you’ll be beaten and sodomized!

Abortions will be covered as well. What’s more preventative than preventing human beings from growing up? A comprehensive plan indeed, Mr. Edwards.

Fortunately, Edwards is easily distracted. Watch this…

“Hey John, you have a hair out of place.”

What? Hand me the compact!”

There. That’ll keep him busy for hours.

Monday's Column: Will Term Limits Fix the Problem?

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily came about as the rant of one frustrated voter after news of the latest Congressional embarrassment came to light. It’s not about Larry Craig, however, but rather on what’s gone wrong with Congress in general and what, if anything, can be done to reverse the trend.

Give a read to “From stalwarts to stall-warts, they all must go” for more on the sordid mess.

Football Saturday in Michigan

My oldest son (12) and I made the little trek into East Lansing today for the first college football game of the season — Michigan State against the University of Alabama at Birmingham. It turned out badly for the UAB.

I’m about as good a photographer as Abraham Zapruder, but nonetheless, if you get out a magnifying glass you can see the opening kickoff of the 2007 season:

Jehuu Caulcrick carries on a short run into the endzone in the 2nd quarter which made it 35-0 MSU:

At the top of the following picture you can see the new press boxes and suites that were put in before last season. Television and radio announcers need to commission the Hubble Telescope in order to be able to see the action:

The final score says it all:

Just 90 miles down the expressway, the University of Michigan didn’t have as much luck against little Appalachian State.

I’ll get back to picking on socialist politicians and/or dopey leftist celebs in the morning, but for now I’ll relish in the MSU win, for they don’t come often enough.

History Lesson, MSM Style

It’s nice to see that Miss Teen South Carolina has gotten a job writing for the mainstream media.

Here’s today’s history lesson:

Russia plans to send a manned mission to the Moon by 2025 and wants to build a permanent base there shortly after, the head of Russian space agency Roskosmos said Friday.

“According to our estimates we will be ready for a manned flight to the Moon in 2025,” Anatoly Perminov told reporters. An “inhabited station” could be built there between 2027 and 2032, he said.

The only moon landing in history is NASA’s Apollo expedition in 1968.

Riiiiight.

These are the people (in this particular instance the Agence France Presse) from whom the world gets most of their Iraq news and everything else.

Turn out the lights on the MSM, the party’s over.

“Over? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
