The Constitutional Genius that is Thomas J. DiLorenzo

In response to Glenn Beck's 5 Pledges for Elected Officials, Thomas DiLorenzo gives a solid example of why he stands head, shoulders, and breastplate above this generation's self-professed libertarians who still admire President Lincoln.

First I present you with Mr. Beck's seriously thoughtful and heartfelt 5 pledges:
1) I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized.

2) I believe government should not increase the financial burden on its' citizenry during difficult economic times therefore I will oppose all tax increases until our economy has rebounded.

3) I believe more than four decades of US dependence on foreign oil is a travesty therefore I will support an energy plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas, and coal as necessary.

4) I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why and I will vehemently oppose any measure giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity, power over U.S. citizens.

5) I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will not apologize for policies or actions which have served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet.

Now, I request that you read Thomas J. DiLorenzo's open letter to Glenn Beck in it's entirety, and come to know how profound the differences were between President Jefferson's and President Lincoln's policies and beliefs.

Happy Thanksgiving

Once again we are getting ready to celebrate more goodness and bounty bestowed upon us than we deserve from such a great and gracious God.

This day has traditions that are from the New Englanders first celebrations; we are after all an English-speaking people. However the first community act of religion and thanksgiving in the first permanent [European] settlement in the land was not in the New England colonies, as we have no doubt all been told by our government educators.

"On September 8, 1565 Pedro Menéndez de Avilés and his 800 Spanish settlers founded the settlement of St. Augustine in La Florida, the landing party celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving, and, afterward, Menéndez laid out a meal to which he invited as guests the native Seloy tribe who occupied the site." - go read the rest of this short piece on history - The actual First Thanksgiving in America!

New guidelines for Pap Smears

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have come out to say that women do need to get cancer screenings until they are at least 21 years of age.
Why ? Because "the move toward fewer screenings will reduce unnecessary treatment in young women and protect them from future pregnancy complications.", says Dr. Alan G. Waxman

Yep, that's right, they suggest waiting until after the women reach 21 years of age because Doctors were to aggressive in their attempts to eradicate cancer.

Wouldn't it have been more prudent to issue new guidelines to Doctors suggesting less aggressive methods earlier than at age 21 ?

Imagine if, when The American Heart Association saw a need for new guidelines in CPR, they had just issued a press release suggesting that " one wait until help arrives", rather than changing the way CPR is taught.

It was Twenty Years Ago Today.......that Germany again tasted Freedom

Publius over at Big Government posted these 1000 words today with the following request:

The guard’s flight to freedom should inspire us. In the comments, tell us where you were on this day in 1989. Commit to remind at least one person of today’s anniversary. We don’t expect Big Media to note the date.

Just days ago this would seem to be an unnecessary thing to do. We all know that the end of the Communist iron-fisted stranglehold over the citizens of East Berlin was wrong. We all know that such a barbaric death-grip on the populace is evil.

If by we I were to mean none of the intellectuals that posit themselves as brighter than I.

See this was an end to a brighter time,

Since the demise of the GDR, many have come to recognise and regret that the genuine "social achievements" they enjoyed were dismantled: social and gender equality, full employment and lack of existential fears, as well as subsidised rents, public transport, culture and sports facilities. Unfortunately, the collapse of the GDR and "state socialism" came shortly before the collapse of the "free market" system in the west.

Without dwelling on the idiocy inherent in such intellectualist rantings as that from Bruni de la Motte, instead just look at the picture of the East German guard risking his life to get to freedom as the wall was being built.

He had a guaranteed job for life ! All of the State's benefits were his ! The best perks were his for the keeping ! Instead he chose FREEDOM !

In the 28 years that the wall stood, there were many who chose to be free at the risk of death. In just a short 20 years there are still many that wish to impose their intellectual will on us who wish to remain free just so they can be assured that they will not fail.

Our Lady of Guadelupe, pray for us !
