Journal Journal: How Does Cheney Do It? 35

It's important to rephrase all news as a conspiracy theory for the consumption of you-know-who. So, with this Clinton Foundation accounting tidbit, the proper question would be "How did Dick Cheney infiltrate PWC and cook the pristine books to make Her Majesty look bad?" Do I get an "A" for the day, coach?

Journal Journal: Public Service Announcement About Public Service 3

As a serving military member, my political interest pretty much ended at casting a ballot, at least until 2008. Around that time the portion of the oath where we swear to [emphasis mine] ". . .defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic" kicked in.
The argument that some prior sin of omission in failing to criticize the Bush Administration precludes further criticism of #OccupyResoluteDesk is specious. Ignorance is an excuse unless you remain mired in it, and I've striven to overcome the deficiencies of my education since understanding what a job the Commies have done on our public schools.
Snark away. As a veteran, I support and defend your Constitutional right to soil yourselves as required. Please don't get any feces on me.

Journal Journal: Sen. Ben Sasse could help lead real reform 20

A classically liberal speech worthy of study:

To that end, in the coming months, I plan a series of Floor speeches on the historic growth of the administrative state. This will not be a partisan effort; it will not be a Republican senator criticizing the current administration because it is Democratic. Rather, it will be a constructive attempt to understand how we got to the place where so much legislating now happens inside the executive branchâS--for this kind of executive overreach came about because of a great deal of symbiotic legislative underreach. Republicans and Democrats are both to blame for grabbing more power when they have the presidency; and Republicans and Democrats are both to blame in the legislature as well for not wanting to lead on hard issues and take hard votes, but rather to sit back and let successive presidents gobble up more authorities. We can and we must do better than this. And the century-long look at the growth of executive branch legislating over the next many months will be an attempt to contribute to the efforts of all here, both Democrats and Republicans, who would like to see the Senate recover some of its authorities and some of its trustworthiness.

Journal Journal: Ben Carson Accidentally Trolls The Degenerates 23

The funniest thing about the Vast Carson Expose is watching the slack-jawed droolers touch themselves while calling Carson a 'liar'. It seems Benny noted someone making a verbal offer to him in his book, and the fact that he never actually carried through with an application to go to Hudson High counts as 'dihonest'.
Using this illogic, if one hears an automobile advertisement on television, yet does not make a purchase, one has lied about buying a car.

Journal Journal: Surprise Not Surprise 5

President Barack Obama found himself drawn into Hillary Clinton's email controversy Friday as the White House acknowledged the State Department is withholding a set of messages Obama and Clinton exchanged during her four years as secretary of state.

On the one hand, there will be some embarrassing content that will someday be declassified. On the other, the point of Executive Privilege is that he does have a job to pretend to accomplish. And besides, as the local castrato is fond of shrilly intoning, there have already been ~37 separate investigations that have already plumbed the depths of the evidence that remains undiscovered, so why don't those concerned with accountable government just shut their pieholes, m'kay?

I've got a bad feeling about this.
