***Ezra Klein, Constitutional idiot. The Constitution is too old and doesn't speak to our problems today? I guess, like your pal Obama, you'd just like to scrap it and start over. Here's Ann Althouse's take. And...one of the comments to her column:
I used to think the Libs were just pretending to be ignorant of American history so they didn't have to acknowledge their rejection of our founding principles.
Turns out, they're all just idiots.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
***We're gonna freeze to death because of global warming!!
That is the cover of a 2007 issue of TIME magazine. Now, if temperatures WERE a lot hotter than normal, think they would blame it on global cooling? This is really becoming a farce.
***Time to rethink public employee unions. They are a drain on the economy and society in general.
In New York, sanitation workers have reported that their union ordered them to sabotage the city's blizzard cleanup efforts. If that claim is true, the union may be responsible for at least one death. Mayor Bloomberg has vowed to investigate.
It remains to be seen what will come of this particular controversy, but the broader point is coming into ever-clearer focus: it is time to ban public employee unions.
For the large majority of our history, public employee unions have been illegal. It is only since the 1960s and 1970s that they have been allowed. Currently, they are legal in roughly half the states. The United States has carried on a four-decade experiment in legalization, and the results are in: public employee unions are a cancer on our country.
Read the rest.

A New Year’s Prayer. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Anonymous
Dear Lord, please give me…
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to recognize them when they come. Amen.
"Fall seven times, stand up eight."
***Have a great day!
