"Boston * Friday, December 17, 1773

Last night in Boston Harbor after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships confiscated the tea in an unlawful manner and destroyed the shipment by throwing it overboard into the harbor waters. There are eye witness accounts that some of the perpetrators were most dishonorable, disguising themselves as noble native Americans from the local Mohawk community college. I believe this is what the governor's wife, Francine Pelosi calls "astro-turfing" but we are still waiting for clarification on this verbiage, our research department as yet being unable to locate these words in any of the more commonly used reference texts.

British Parlement and the media office of the British East India Company could not be reached for comment at the time of this printing so let your humble reporter and editor in chief, K. Olberman Esq., take it upon himself to say what must be said about the coarsening of this debate on taxes and the descent into random and meaningless acts of hooliganism by petty vandals.

Sometimes when I am at the local public houses near Harvard I hear some patrons suggesting that similar acts of defiance have been a matter of righteous indignation. I hear the same tired rhetoric about taxation without representation, about how the local governors are bowing to the Crown's agenda and not representing the will of the people. To all that traitorous dialogue I see 'go hang.'

If you allow yourself to be drawn further into this baseless and reasonless debate you will even hear claims of trade protectionism intent on creating a British monopoly on tea. Of course these claims are often made with a thick Dutch accent but this only serves to emphasize the minority nature of this lowly mob that cannot for a moment be taken seriously. Oh, how this makes me yearn for the more intellectual discourse back in my beloved Ithica. This Boston rabble could take a lesson or two from my townsmen.

Before you know it these so called, Sons of Liberty will be casting eggs at the carriages of his Majesty's officials and perhaps even papering the trees in front of the Governor's house. Then what becomes of civility?"

Then what, indeed, Mr. Olberman.

Today's Tea Party has it's roots in the gathering led by Samual Adams that historic night in 1773. And just like those patriots, working hard, putting health and welfare at risk to make a better life for their families, but playing by the rules only to have the rules changed by a distant leadership class intent on manipulating the outcome and ignoring the will of the people . . . patriots then and now felt their frustration mounting. Their peaceful appeals were disregarded, even ignored. Such feelings of futility naturally give way to irrational and even violent impulses. This 111th Congress should feel fortunate that the situation today, fomented by the Democrat's arrogance, has not devolved to that level yet and that this Tea Party still expects a civil and peaceful redress of their grievances beginning in November of this year of our Lord 2010.

"Victory" They Say

. . . well let them taste the mouthful of ash from their victory.

The definition of a Pyrrhic victory: costly to the point of negating or outweighing expected benefits (health care reform, historical legacy or otherwise).

After a year of fighting freedom loving, Constitutional minded patriotic Americans at every turn these radical liberals may have won the battle over Government Controlled Health Care Rationing but throughout history lost battles like these have marked the turn of the war tides. At Thermopylae and the Alamo the defeat became a rallying cry for the ultimate victor.

"This weekend will mark the beginning of the end of liberal ascendance here in Washington, D.C.," Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) declared Saturday, March 20th. "I don't know if our victory will come on the third Sunday in March or the first Tuesday in November, but our victory will come.”

Pork-ulus Hill

Dems Abandon Abortion Deal, Ready Health Vote -AP March 12, 2010

So here it comes . . . the human wave invasion of Congressmen and women throwing themselves at the trenches of patriotic citizens in a full out frontal assault on American liberty. Fix bayonets. Call your Representatives this week. Make sure they all feel the steel that is the will of the American People.

Here's the map of the objective:

Here's your rally point:

Here is a flash card to help you identify the enemy combatants who you need to engage:
We need to keep as many in the "No" columns from going over to the enemy and make the rest know they will pay the price in November if they charge this hill now.

and call in an artillery barrage of email on this list of coordinates:

Here are your communication codes:

Lock and Load and start firing Monday morning.

And when you run out of ammunition, remember that Nancy told us she'd be coming over the wire so fix bayonets!

The Health Care Debate Really Just Needs Buffy

It's back.
Because it never really went away.
That would be the Obaminable Health Care Ration Bill.
In spite of the fact that Scott Brown's election was a clear referendum coming out of Teddy "My Legacy Will Be Universal Health Care" Kennedy's own state of Massachusetts; in spite of hearing how this administration was going to pivot hard on to the economy and jobs right at the beginning of this year (check the calendar, it's March already), a statement made no less by the President himself; in spite of a largely unproductive summit (the first time Republicans had been allowed on to the stage to debate health care legislation in over ten months) Obama is right back at it again like a heat crazed dog on a chain that gets shorter with every rotation around the stake; a dog that continues barking with a ragged voice; a dog that returns to its own pile of $hit.

And for those of you saying "it's dead" for something like the fifth or thirty fifth time, realize this thing is not going to die a simple death. This agenda is the undead demon-seed of these liberal Democrat's. Their progressive agenda, a.k.a. socialism is not a hell-hound. It's a vampire.

And it is not just a vampire.
It's the cheesy, overacted vampire of Paul Reubens fame in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, except we're no longer amused. Just die already.

After all, this is the second time the President has said the "debate is over" and for once, in that one minor fact he may be right.

At this point even the most poignant and eloquent of writers are repeating themselves in articles about how this debate has been lost and how Obama has lost it. Just look at Charles Krauthammer's piece "For Obama, health care show must go on" and see that CK is growing tired of having to find new ways of expressing the obvious.

In that sense the debate has been over for sometime. All relevant points have been made and Obama's intransigence on this topic has morphed into nothing more evolved than an annoyance that strongly resembles a young child arguing with their parent to get their own way by repeatedly asking "why not?" only to be rebuffed again and again by the single word response, "because."

But after all, isn't that how vampires get you? Their tireless, dogged pursuit of the blood in your veins can never be slaked by anything except . . . the blood in your veins. Obama is fixated on passing Health Care legislation like a vampire locked on to its next victim.

The threat of Health Care passage won't die simply or quickly. It will live on until you lop off its head (Pelosi) and stake it in the heart (Obama) and then maybe if we dismember it (the Democrat majority in the House and Senate) and send the individual pieces to the farthest flung regions of the third world we may be able to avoid hearing about it until someone like Soros scours the planet for all the pieces, perhaps "a decade" from now to reassemble it just to make another bad vampire movie sequel of it.

There is one other threat to the vampire. It is the light of day. This vampire in particular can only operate under the cover of darkness, yet now we know it is out there and we have seen it coming for us. It knows this. This fact, knowledge of its inherent weakness is always in its blood hungering mind. And that's why when it is close to making a fresh kill and the dawn is rapidly approaching it is most desperate and in its greatest hurry.

Once exposed, the best time to kill the vampire is in the middle of the day. Dawn for the Obama-care vampire may be in November. Until then don't expect it to stop stalking its victim. This vampire is hoping we will tire of being hunted, become distracted, and let down our guard.
