Happy Easter and Passover everybody who celebrates these things. Me? I’m just celebrating a day of beautiful weather down here.
If anybody ever wanted to know why we’re having a financial crisis here is the US, look no further then here: http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/04/07/2737157/web-widens-on-infamous-florida.html
Where were the title searches?
Who were the banking people and why haven’t they been arrested for mortgage fraud? This is but one example. I bet there are hundreds of cases like this. I just think of the commissions and fees made on these deals as the legality of it all was overlooked.
Thanks for posting this. I haven’t been to church since my mom died in 2008 and on days like today, I definiitely feel like I’m missing something.
I think I know how you feel. this is my first Easter without my mom. It is difficult.
Keith Koffler explains Obama’s Easter message, going for the bitter clinger voting bloc ? Video of message at link.
As so many of us said from the beginning, it is Obama’s overweening arrogance that is proving his undoing. Great piece up by Althouse (who actually likes and voted for Obama:
Driven by circumstances and self-confidence, the president has made himself the star performer in the national drama. He has been ubiquitous, appearing everywhere, trying to overhaul most sectors of national life: finance, health, energy, automobiles and transportation, housing, and education, among others.
He is no ideologue, but over the past year he has come to seem like the sovereign on the cover of “Leviathan” — the brain of the nation to which all the cells in the body and the nervous system must report and defer. Oh, my lord. Defer! Defer has been a big word these past 2 weeks, as the Obama administration demanded deference from the judiciary.
The country is now split on Obama, because he is temperate, thoughtful and pragmatic, but his policies are almost all unpopular….
Many Democrats, as always, are caught in their insular liberal information loop. They think the polls are bad simply because the economy is bad. They tell each other health care is unpopular because the people aren’t sophisticated enough to understand it. Some believe they can still pass health care even if their candidate, Martha Coakley, loses the Senate race in Massachusetts on Tuesday.
That, of course, would be political suicide. It would be the act of a party so arrogant, elitist and contemptuous of popular wisdom that it would not deserve to govern. Marie Antoinette would applaud, but voters would rage.Oh, really? How’s that rage going these days? Rage or deference? What are you seeing?
If I were President Obama, I would spend the next year showing how government can serve a humble, helpful and supportive role to the central institutions of American life. Even in blue states like Massachusetts, voters want a government that is energetic but limited — a servant, not a leviathan. But as brooks are not oceans, Brooks is not Obama. And Obama did not take that advice. “Political suicide” was committed. Is it noticeable? The health care bill was passed, even after Ms. Coakley lost.
And now, the people — who made it perfectly clear at the time and continue to make it clear that they did not like Obama’s policies — look to the Court to save them from the Leviathan, and the Leviathan says defer.
The Master’s is definitely a bucket list event. After years of entering the ticket lottery, my husband finally got to go….but the tix were for the Par 3 practice round on the Weds. And closest hotel room he could get was 3 hours away. He had a good time. Has been much cheaper to invest in a 54″ LCD flat screen t.v. Much better gallery seats
Bubba Watson won the Masters, he’s never taken a golf lesson in his life.
This is nothing new, at least in southeast Virginia which runs buses to all points casino north of us. Sometimes they crash though
Huh. The guy named Bubba who just won the Masters has never had a lesson, never seen his swing on video? What, is he like a total unknown? Not watching, but people are saying he’s bawling.
He hails from the Florida panhandle, a Georgia Bulldog wins in Augusta Georgia.
LMAO!!! GOLF BOYS! Bubba and some of his friends did a charity video:
He plays with a pink driver too, also for charity. He’s a great story.
All my family are going nuts. I grew up in Aiken, SC – about 15 miles and just across the Savannah river from Augusta, so it’s a big deal there. Our schools growing up always scheduled their spring break for Masters week. I usually watch, but I didn’t this year.
People in a lot of the country think golf is only a rich mans game, but in Aiken, EVERYONE golfs. There are tons of cheap and public courses. My nephews grew up in a doublewide trailer – but they all golfed.
