The Grounding of Big Government

By Glenn Reynolds

GREG GUTFELD: THE GROUNDING OF BIG GOVERNMENT. “Nevermind the appeasers–the IRS scandal IS a big deal. It’s such a big deal, it could ruin the agency forever, and take a few others down with it. And sure, it’s a lot of fun on the right to be clamoring for scalps–like, who should be fired and how many. But pink slips are small potatoes. The end game is way, way bigger than that stuff. What we are witnessing is a collapse of trust in big government, which ultimately–to our benefit as small-government types–leads to a permanent undermining of the whole system.”

Or as Peggy Noonan said: “What does it mean when half the country—literally half the country—understands that the revenue-gathering arm of its federal government is politically corrupt, sees them as targets, and will shoot at them if they try to raise their heads? That is the kind of thing that can kill a country, letting half its citizens believe that they no longer have full political rights.”

Obama Administration Bullies

I haven’t written any new posts in a while for a couple of different reasons. One, I am really unhappy with the state of my website now. I wanted to move everything over from the sub-directory to the main directory so that you, my readers, could just type in http://www.progressiveinsanity.com and you’d get me. Sadly, when I moved the sub-directory, I somehow managed to lose everything – including access to the dang thing. So, I’m starting over, trying to get the colors right and the layout right. It’s a headache, to say the least. And, to top it all off, the main site is still in a dang sub-directory!! I’m still working on the site, but it’s at least at a place where I’m not totally mortified to let people see it – so, I’m back.

The second reason is that all of the Obama Administration scandals got me overwhelmed. I couldn’t decide what which one to write about. I’d love to know your thoughts on these scandals. Which one is the one that just makes your blood boil? Which one, if any, do you think will ultimately cause some

These scandals coming to light shouldn’t be a surprise to those who’ve had their eyes open. This is just how Obama does business. Most of us only do something at work if we know it’s something that the boss is okay with us doing. Some “low level” employees are not going to take it upon themselves to target a group of people if they think they’re going to lose their job when it gets found out.

Obama has a history of targeting those who disagree with him. It’s always someone under him who does this outrageous “fact” gathering, but sooner or later, you’ve got to realize the pattern is quite clear. I’ll say it again, you only do things like this if your boss tells you to do them, or at the very least, if you know your boss would approve.

A short list of those who’ve been on the receiving end of his childish, vindictive, behavior:

I guess we all have a couple of choices to make. We either need to do a little housekeeping to make sure that we’ll get through any unwanted attention from the Obama Administration, or sit back, shut up, and watch our once proud United States of America become another socialist state where you’re not allowed to speak up at all.
