"Compromise" is a word you will never hear from the mouth of someone who knows they are right and knows the consequences for not doing what is right. Churchill's "Never quit" speech and the example below say it best.
I could not find youtube video of an often overlooked scene of Eric Liddell speaking with his missionary supporters who encourage him to continue on his journey in athletics. The line hit me like a lightning bolt. It is as true in athletics as it is in politics; "Compromise is a language of the devil." For inspirational effect, I included the next best Eric Liddell footage which is the reading of Isaiah.
Nothing makes me happier than hearing the MSM proclaiming that some of these Tea Party freshman are behaving as if they don't care if they get reelected.
Update: Jindal agrees with me.

I know the left-tards are going to use the Norway massacre to try and portray anyone with my views as the equivalent of someone who would do what this monster in Norway did. I am preemptively owning the title "right wing extremist," because these beliefs are not up for compromise. I suggest the Seattle Times and the Olympian find some more appropriate title, because this monster does not represent my beliefs.
How about calling this lover of death who was wearing a "police" uniform Sting instead? Sting's lyrics speak more to explain the Norwegian monster's motives than my beliefs ever could.

The world as we know it is on the verge of collapse right? Social Security will NOT get paid they tell us. Then I read this:
The Obama administration is committing $35 million to the [Michelle Obama healthy eating]effort this year and is proposing $330 million from the budget next year.
What part of this aligns with a federal government that's worried about paying its bills?

"I wish they [Republicans] were all fucking dead" on "Real Time with Bill Maher"
I'm not smart like an Obama voter, but I think that qualifies as hate speech. Brad Shannon of the Olympian, the local authority on who is and is not filled with hate, was unavailable for comment. Also no word or further comment from comedian Wanda Sykes, who wished Rush Limbaugh's kidney's would fail to the POTUS, who then laughed it up. Also no word from washed up TV actor and failed comedian Christopher Titus who stated on air that he would gun down Palin if she were elected President.
I personally wish peace, prosperity and good health upon all Americans, including those who do not think like I do, as well as those who are elected to implement platforms that I oppose. So long as your endeavors don't conflict with my peace, prosperity, good health, and personal liberties, I really don't have bandwidth to care what you do or say.
None of the leftists named above occupy much real estate in my head, I just thought I would point out the glaring disparity between what we on the right say and what you on the left say. It is an absolute mystery to me why any of these people above who are not elected to a public office matter to anyone. The limited time I listen to Rush, I agree with most of what is said on his show. Does the same statement hold true to lefties following Maher's show?

Since about 50% of Americans filing a tax return pay no taxes or get net money back, why does no one ask why the rest of America doesn't pay their flipping share for this run away spending?
Since Harry Potter is opening tonight, why don't we force the richest 3 families in line to pay, and the rest of the theatre gets filled with people who either don't pay or they get paid to watch the film with free popcorn and drinks.

This may be like the 57 states comment, or a health care bill that will give asthma sufferers breathalyzers, or even not knowing that the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington is a bazillion dollar super fund nuclear clean up site, but maybe the most eloquent man in the history of the world was just hoping we wouldn't notice that he said he's openly lying.
For the record, I hope they shut the federal government down. If the worst that can happen is entitlement checks don't flow, then we've surmised that we are being vastly overcharged for a payroll service that could be outsourced for a fraction of the cost. The lesson learned will be we could likely cut the deficit by about 25% by just shuttering the government between memorial day and labor day.
I say we give it a try. It will be like shutting off the cable. Sure the kids will complain at first, but like Barack and Michelle Obama are always telling us, we all need to learn to do more with less. Let's take that advice to heart and start by doing more with less government.
Update: It keeps getting richer. Later in the day, Durbin delivers this gem:
“We will have no choice at that point but to turn to some other option.”
Like what? Reducing costs by eliminating the Department of Redundancy Department? If you are a federal employee at the DRD, better start updating that resume. I have to wonder when someone is going to tell the emperor, he has no clothes.

From repeat domestic violence calls to Los Angeles car chases,
hit-and-run drivers and the balloon-boy hoax, worthless louts consume vastly
more law enforcement resources than the rest of us. Cops in any town will tell
you all the domestic violence calls come from the exact same homes, over and
As long as we're looking for new revenue streams, how about
billing these white trash low-lifes for their massive consumption of police
resources? The dregs of society need to be assessed a fee for their abuse of
government services and thrown in debtors prison in the unlikely event that they
Sorry Ann. Domestic Violence is already one of the biggest government paydays around. Police and prosecutors alike will be all too happy to take you up on your offer, because in their eyes and the eyes of the libs, the only man out there who isn't a wife beater, is one they haven't managed to accuse yet. So unless you want the entire male population of the United States to get Mike Nifonged by local law enforcement, I suggest you recant this one.

Serving Leadership Today (The Self Kind) - It has been said that getting elected to office nowadays is a license to steal. A PDR of our local judges (a few years ago) showed an amazing accumulation of wealth for them and their government "serving" spouses (mostly lawyers too). Jumping up a few levels to the Federal leaders (who have sold us to China and put We, the People in the worst financial mess and debt we have ever been in) reveals these kind of results . . . House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's wealth grows 62% to $35.2M, Boehner, Reid's worth increases too. It was reported that Senators had a median reportable net worth of $1.79 million in 2008, the last year such data were available, down from $2.27 million in 2007. House members' median net worth was $645,503 in 2008, down from $724,258 the previous year. While about 1 percent of Americans are considered millionaires, 44 percent of members of Congress were in that category. Fifty members had wealth topping $10 million. I certainly don't begrudge but rather applaud the honest earning of wealth through God given talent, risk taking and hard work. But, however our current leaders got their wealth, they will go out of public service with life long retirement and top notch health care benefits. No wonder they didn't care to read the Obamacare bill they signed for us (We, the People) before jetting off on vacation. They weren't subject to it. They will be set for life if they weren't when they weaseled and bought their way in.
In Contrast, I found this interesting summation of the founders of this Country.
Servant Leadership of Yesterday (The Selfless Kind) -
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they?
Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags. Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward. Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr. noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later, he died from exhaustion and a broken heart. Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates. Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more.
