Obama becomes a religious zelot...

That's pretty funny. In order to promote the government takeover of medical care, Obama is now channelling Jesus and other religious figures. He even claimed he was his brother's keeper.

It's funny though that Obama's own brother lives in utter poverty in a hut in Africa, and the president is unwilling to spend a dime to help him. So, what exactly does Obama mean, when he claims he is his brother's keeper?

Nice quote from C.S. Lewis

"It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Obama should provide legal protection for liberal activists

The Obama administration recently announced that it would be collecting information about people’s views on the proposed health care reform. American citizens are asked to report emails, personal conversations and blogs that criticize Obama’s plan to overtake the medical insurance. It’s all good and dandy, and the civil rights groups that went ballistic when president Bush proposed same methods to combat terrorism are quiet now. It also looks unlikely that the media and the courts will attempt to stop Obama from getting American citizens to spy on his opponents. But what is going to happen if a republican wins the 2012 elections, and the new president decides to make the citizens’ reports public? Imagine how would a freedom loving civil activist feel if it is revealed to the nation that he informed the authorities that his neighbor had questioned the Obama care? I mean, we are all progressive people here, but there may be still some reactionaries among us who for some reason hold outmoded and racist prejudices against telling on your friends. I believe Obama must propose a law that would absolutely protect the anonymity of his informants. After all, we know that light is the best disinfectant - so it's only reasonable for the Obama administration to turn off as many lights as possible...
