I just finished a short post about the Fiesta Bowl. Whew, I'm glad I got that done. I cut down on coffee a couple weeks ago and the decades long accumulation of caffeine build-up has been slowly working its way out of my system. I feel great. I can sleep and my teeth have returned to the lovely light brown that they were when I was in high school.
In fact, I feel so good that I'm not ticked off all the time. I drive slower; I'm nice to my kids and only have to shave once a day.
I'm also totally incapable of writing espresso pundit.
After all, liberals have feelings too. The folks at the Republic work really hard. Linda Valdez, John Zidich and Robert Leger are probably really nice people who are largely misunderstood.
Sure, Robert Shelton thinks that Legislators are evil while his buddies Malcolm Hughes and Jonathan Overpeck manipulated their data to "hide the decline," but it's so hard to get grant money these days...there's a lot a pressure and all...
And the 2008 banking crisis isn't really going to work its way up to Greece, Portugal and Ireland. Germany isn't going to back out of the EU. The Chinese economy doesn't really look like Japan circa 1989. I'm sure that Congress will figure out a way to reform entitlements. Should I really have put my entire 401K in gold? Sure, I've made 40% in the last 18 months, but it's such a pessimistic vision...
I can't imagine that the long-form birth certificate on the White House website is really fake. It's just a joke. After all, it's such a BAD fake that it must have been a joke.
Napolitano wasn't really corrupt. She didn't really agree to exempt the home builders from the TIME initiative, if they contributed $100,000 to her cause. And she didn't drop the charges against Honeywell if they would donate $1 million to the Western Climate Initiative. And that whole Squaw Peak thing couldn't have been illegal, it must have been a misunderstanding. And that time she siphoned $400,000 out of the state's Emergency Medical Fund in order to promote her failed "Copper Card"? That was actually a very clever April Fools joke on her part. She'll give that money back someday. And that time she gave the state's student loan contract to the head of the fire fighter's union? I'm sure he totally deserved it.
I've tried to get the passion back with less caffeine. Last week I moved my copy of "Silent Spring" from by bookshelf to my desk. After all, Rachel Carson is a hero to the left, but banning DDT has killed upwards of 50 million people. Surely that will get me motivated? Nope.
So this morning, I said screw it and had a giant cup of coffee and I'm thoroughly jacked up on caffeine. Rachel Carson is back on the shelf...Liberal Fascism is on the desk now. Don't forget that Woodrow Wilson put 175,000 Americans in jail for STATEMENTS they made during WWI. Don't forget that Roosevelt imprisoned 75,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry...with the full support of his newly reshaped Supreme Court. Jim Crow laws, White Primaries and Grandfather clauses were DEMOCRATIC Party inventions.
The Chinese economy is a centrally-planned house of cards. Entitlements are going to overtake the entire budget in a few years. The 1.4 Trillion dollar deficit isn't sustainable. Napolitano is bringing the same corrupt practices to the Orwellian sounding department of "Homeland" security that she got away with here. The only thing worse than Obama Care and "Cash for Clunkers" may have been Bush's prescription drug benefit and steel tariffs.
Whew. That felt great. Sure, my hands are shaking and I can't see out of my left eye, but it's totally worth it to have the fire back. I have so many things to tell you about....
