And yet, here we are....

Here we are. The most advanced and prosperous civilization the world has ever seen and it's like we're all just assuming it's always been like this and always will be. We've forgotten that this wonderful lifestyle we lead isn't a given. Freedom isn't a given. We've gotten to this wonderful place and we've torn up the map how to get here. Many of the people who educate our children don't believe in the Constitution. They don't believe that the values that built this society are anything special. And we've left them in charge of our children. --Creative Minority Report: The Perfect Recipe for America's Doom

Jack Ryan: Where are you taking me, Marty?
Marty Cantor: It's you who have taken us, Jack...
Woman: Satellite now entering target area.
Marty Cantor: ...Into battle.
Woman: Enlargement Sector Four. Airborne Support approaching target area. E.T.A. Thirty five seconds.
CIA Agent: That is a kill.

Of the syphilitic camels left in the field, the one I support is Romney. -- Classical Values

Deep down, he's shallow: "A good rule of thumb to judge Obama is to take his boast, reverse it, and then apply it to Obama. He seems out of his depth when discussing policy, so he avoids press conferences and becomes irate during the rare times a non-fawning journalist poses a challenging question to him. Or he is just reduced to "gibberish." -- Ed Lasky, How Obama Makes Decisions

"We do not feel a religious respect for 'institutions of democracy' in their current form,...." -- We, the Web Kids- The Atlantic

Fuck Afghanistan. Let the whole country die in a fire: Afghans besiege US base in protest over Quran burning

One Cʘsmos: There's No Shame in Being a Liberal You will have noticed that one of the problems in arguing with a leftist is not just that they are unreasonable, but that they cannot be shamed.

The nation hungers for just such [uncool] behavior. Witness the recent YouTube video of a father punishing his spoiled daughter for a snarky Facebook post by plugging her laptop with a .45. The thing went viral to the tune of tens of millions of viewers. Why? Because it was wonderful to see someone finally step up and be Daddy. -- Klavan On The Culture: The Tyranny of Hip

Serf's Up!: "Folks don't have unrealistic ambitions. They do believe that if they work hard they should be able to achieve that small measure of an American Dream." --Obama peddles modest American dream

Hand cut, organic, human-grade dog treats baked in NYC's West Village. Driven by wellness and sustainability, the small batch dog treatery uses only "human-grade" ingredients—antibiotic-free beef, hormone-free white meat chicken, wheat free flour—for their all-natural dog biscuits. -- Bocce's Bakery

I’m so sick of being negative that I’m feeling negative about negativity.... It seems like we're in for a lose-lose. Whoever wins the primary loses. -- Classical Values In my dreams

Yes, the entire U.S. population had the same image in mind for Lowered Expectations, as soon as the words came out of Obama's mouth.

I guess now the expectation of the middle class should be comfortable serfdom, since we have all gotten "lazy", and the evil millionaires and billionaires already have all the money anyway. Thanks, Mr. President, I didn't think I could make anything of myself anyhow.

I am aghast to think that people might feed wheat flour to their dogs. Imagine the shock to poor Fifi's system. It might cause her to upchuck the three-day-old roadkill or the fresh cow poop she just ate.

Not to mention what "Fido" might have been licking last, prior to his "human grade" meal.

...they cannot be shamed.

You have to have at least microgram of morals in order to feel shame for having violated them. Liberals cannot be shamed because they -- like animals -- have no morals, only the cognition of what makes them feel good.

A 'Bread and Circus' mentality is now the determinant in the Land of La-La-La. We're an election away from "Let them eat cake."
