Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

Obama Continues His Hugo Chavez 101 Training Course

Barack Obama is beginning to signal that he would "happy to look at" a bailout of our failing newspapers--so long as they "reorganize" as non profits!! This is absolutely stunning, but then again when it comes to this fascist and socialist that occupies the White House it shouldn't surprise anyone anymore...he is taking his cues directly from the other tin horn leaders in the world, most recently the esteemed Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

First of all "non profit" means government owned--either directly or implied. If you are a non-profit, you live and die by what government dictates in order to gain or keep this status. For a media outlet, this is a flagrant and direct violation of the First Amendment and anyone in Congress or the White House that supports this (if it ever sees the light of day in Congress) should be immediately impeached and/or recalled by their states for such an act.

I wonder if Conservative papers(albeit there are very few) would also be eligible for such a bailout?? I would think not. And let's face it, the reason these papers are failing is BECAUSE NO ONE IS READING THEM!! They are miserable failures because the public can see right through the clear liberal bias in these papers and their writers. The OP/Ed pages are now being passed off as the "real" news and it isn't working. When people don't buy papers, advertising sales plummet and the papers go broke. Guess what? That's capitalism! That's the free market! Get over it!

And what does our goverment do with failing businesses that they think will benefit them? Pump taxpayer money into a failing effort-what else! What the hell, it isn't their money--why would they care??

Now that I think about it though, Obama and his liberal ilk hate the free market and competition, so it only makes sense that they would try to kill the successful ones and bailout the failing ones and remake them in their image. Liberalism is a failure and people that promote it are failures, so that makes total sense to me. To a liberal, if you can't beat success, then just try to kill it.

Way to go comrades!
