Walker comes across personally as a little wooden and boring, but overall this is a great ad and a great message.
Compared to Rick Perry, Walker is certainly more impressive. Perry makes a lot of claims about his role in promoting the economy of Texas that he simply cannot back up. The government of Texas employs a weak executive system wherein the governor has little power. It is highly likely that, regardless of the governor, the economy of Texas would be doing well, because the governor really does not have that much effect on the state economy. Meanwhile, Perry’s understanding of the 10th Amendment apparently is that the federal government should be restrained, but that state governments can have nearly unlimited power over their citizens.
Walker’s message on the other hand, is not just to roll back federal power, but to roll back government power in general, and empower people to make their own choices and find their own economic prosperity. And, Walker’s message resounds because it his policies have worked. Among the governors who have thrown their hat in the ring, he certainly looks like the strongest conservative candidate.
No, this armor is not for real. Rather, Canadian artist Jeff de Boer became interested in making human armor as art-pieces. It follows that if humans need armor for warfare, cats should need armor as well. And if cats need armor, then … you get the picture.
We had previously talked of using cats for warfare here. Given their antisocial behavior, it is only natural that they be enlisted in war. The main issue appears to be that they are so antisocial that they are inherently undependable. I would not, for example, trust a cat with a gun.
The main questions are thus whether or not they can be trained sufficiently to be of any help to humankind, and whether we can design small but effective weaponry for mice to use in battle. This would make an excellent field for research.
Meanwhile, other photos of de Boer’s art can be found here.
In a meeting with congressional leaders in 2009, three days after his inauguration, Barack Obama famously told GOP leaders that he was not interested in their ideas or input, and that essentially they should sit down and shut up, because “I won.” He went on to explain that “elections have consequences.” While news reports at the time tried to sugar-coat Obama’s statement, it was clear that it left Republicans who heard the remark gobsmacked. After all, they had all just won elections themselves, otherwise they would not have been in Congress.
For nearly six years Obama has attempted to rule the land based upon this premise, and has by all measures failed miserably. This is not just by conservative standards. Liberals, of all people, should feel the most betrayed by this man because of his continual prevarications, his inaction on liberal issues such as Guantanamo Bay, domestic spying, the continual wars in the Middle East, and his manifest incompetence. The only accomplishment liberals can really point to is that Obama is the first black president, something they continually remind themselves and others, as though that somehow mitigates the disaster of his presidency.
The result of Obama’s misguided rule? A country painted red.
After all, elections have consequences.
