Check out this affirmative action bake sale. Though it was shut down, it still makes a great point.

This is one of those things you hear and think, “What? They can’t do that! How can they do that? Why are we letting them do that?”

Barack Obama, who has for months now been engaged in ramming unworkable health-care, illegal corporate regulations, an immoral (is that still a word?) social agenda, and a bottomless stock market down our throats is now merely asking that we trust him with taking over non-bank financial companies. I think I’d go with Ronald Reagan’s wisdom when dealing with the Soviets. Remember his infamous ‘trust but verify’ quip? We showed Obama that, as a nation, we trust him by voting him into office. How about we verify what Obama has already done to our country before we just let him lead it to further destruction.

Got liberty?

The idea of liberty is an ever shrinking idea. People do not think much about it nowadays. This is evident from the fact that it is not talked about much these days.

Here’s a thought: when was the last time you heard some bad news? Probably today, right? Bad news is all around us, we are bombarded by it. Think about the last item of bad news you heard, be it local or global, then think about what you thought in the next instant. Just by chance, was it, “Someone should do something about that!”? Or perhaps, “That person should sue.”? Perhaps you thought something different or maybe even none of these. Regardless, likely, not long ago you heard of some injustice, great or small, were appalled, and thought, “That just isn’t right, something should be done.”

Certainly injustices exist which ought to be remedied. However, there are others which should be left alone. For all too often, to fix an injustice is to relinquish freedom. Perhaps here is where the old adage by Ben Franklin applies, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Though many may agree with Franklin, too many of us are too short-sighted in our perceived wants. Fattened by a myriad of comforts which only help fuel our addictions, and wanting to do less and less while receiving more and more, it’s no wonder there is a shortage of freedom-loving people; it is hard work. More freedom must not only be fought for; we must fight even to maintain that which we already have. Perhaps a good place to begin a serious contemplation of liberty is to at least pause at the next encountered injustice, and think twice before concluding what action, if any, should be undertaken.
