One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!
I unabashedly admit I fell asleep before the SOTU address even started. However, I woke up just in time to hear Obama say that he wanted Eric Holder to work with the states’ attorney generals to go after banks, credit unions and other mortgage lenders who practice predatory lending…inferring of course that it was only those evil banks, credit unions and mortgage companies to blame for the housing mess. The government, of course, had NOTHING to do with it. And now that the
lynch man, attorney general is gunning for bankers that misbehave, it will be even harder for folks to get a loan.
I groaned and fell back asleep.
Of course I caught the highlights of the speech on the news and favorite blogs. Check these out:
Twilight’s Last Gleaming: The President’s State of Deception Speech Gets Fact Checked
Be Sure You’re Right, Then Go Ahead: Obama: Carpal Tunnel President
Lorinov’s Blog had another take. Instead of talking about what President Obama said in his address, he wrote an essay about what he WISHED the president had said: SOTU: What a Real Leader Might Have Said,
Lorinov is in good company. John Stossel had the same idea with his opinion piece:
“Has Barack Obama learned nothing in three years? Last night, during his State of the Union address, he promised “a blueprint for an economy.” But economies are crushed by blueprints.
An economy is really nothing more than people participating in an unfathomably complex spontaneous network of exchanges aimed at improving their material circumstances. It can’t even be diagrammed, much less planned. And any attempt at it will come to grief.
Politicians like Obama believe they are the best judges of how we should conduct our lives. Of course a word like “blueprint” would occur to the president. He, like most who want his job, aspires to be the architect of a new society.
But we who love our lives and our freedom say: No, thanks. We need no social architect. We need liberty under law.

We’re on a High.
Higher unemployment. Higher than ever debt. Higher numbers receiving government entitlements Higher than ever foreclosures. Higher than ever attacks on personal liberty.
With highs like that, there’s no place to go but down.
