This is one hell of a quote:

Our government is too big. It is too inefficient. It is too intrusive. It needs to do less, and it needs to do a considerably better job of executing those functions it does carry out. The struggle to take us from where we are today to a future in which a leaner, flatter government allows its citizens to truly live free, is the defining battle of our time. Nothing less than the definition of what it means to be “an American” is at stake.

This comes from this piece here:

WHERE’S SAM WHEN YOU NEED HIM?

…comes from Michelle Malkin’s piece The Amnesty Mob vs. America.

The whole article is a good read.

Here’s the quote:

Rubio, Ryan and other Republicans who’ve made common cause with these welfare-state goons have betrayed fundamental principles of limited government and the rule of law. They’ve allied themselves with the mob. There’s nothing, not one thing, “conservative” about mass illegal alien amnesty. It’s the complete Chicago-ization of America.

…from the debate last night was this.

It’s actually a segment:

MR. ROMNEY: Jim, let’s — we — we’ve gone on a lot of topics there, and — so I’ve got to take — it’s going to take a minute to go from Medicaid to schools to —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: (Inaudible.)

MR. LEHRER: Come back to Medicaid, here, yeah, yeah, right.

MR. ROMNEY: — oil to tax breaks and companies overseas. So let’s go through them one by one. First of all, the Department of Energy has said the tax break for oil companies is $2.8 billion a year. And it’s actually an accounting treatment, as you know, that’s been in place for a hundred years. Now —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It’s time to end it.

MR. ROMNEY: — oil to tax breaks and companies overseas. So let’s go through them one by one. First of all, the Department of Energy has said the tax break for oil companies is $2.8 billion a year. And it’s actually an accounting treatment, as you know, that’s been in place for a hundred years. Now —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It’s time to end it.

MR. ROMNEY: And — and in one year, you provided $90 billion in breaks to the green energy world. Now, I like green energy as well, but that’s about 50 years’ worth of what oil and gas receives, and you say Exxon and Mobil — actually, this $2.8 billion goes largely to small companies, to drilling operators and so forth.

But you know, if we get that tax rate from 35 percent down to 25 percent, why, that $2.8 billion is on the table. Of course it’s on the table. That’s probably not going to survive, you get that rate down to 25 percent.

But — but don’t forget, you put $90 billion — like 50 years worth of breaks — into solar and wind, to — to Solyndra and Fisker and Tesla and Ener1. I mean, I — I had a friend who said, you don’t just pick the winners and losers; you pick the losers. All right? So — so this is not — this is not the kind of policy you want to have if you want to get America energy-secure.

The second topic, which is you said you get a deduction for getting a plant overseas. Look, I’ve been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you’re talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant.

(Emphasis mine).

…maybe the year!
I LMFAO when I read this.

Let him tell it and he’ll give you every reason why his offense stinks worse than Lady Gaga’s taint after an evening in a skirt steak thong.

This is is reference to the Oakland Raiders and the fact that they brought Greg Knapp back as the offensive coordinator. I’m still scratching my head on that one, they tossed his ass the last time he was the OC because he sucked. I don’t see anything different.

Here’s where it came from:

Greg Knapp Has Plenty Of Excuses

Greg Knapp doesn’t get the benefit of the doubt. Not in Oakland he doesn’t.

We’ve seen his tired act before and last time it resulted in Tom Cable taking over the play calling duties. Guess what? The offense improved under Cable.

So here we are again with Knapp at the helm and the offense is again sputtering. Last time around Knapp had JaMarcus Russell as his biggest excuse. This time he’s hanging his excuse hat on injuries and the need for patience.
