Andrew Breitbart. An American Hero For Freedom of Speech.
It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow, and I want to thank all of you HillBuzzers for supporting this site with your comments, your love, and your desire to save this country. I thank God every day that I have been blessed with friends like you.
We can quibble about politics, but we all should give thanks for living in the greatest, and free-est country on earth. We are damn lucky, and if you are one of those eeyore sad sacks who don’t understand how blessed you are, then you can choose to sit in a chair and pout. Boo hoo.
I choose to give thanks, and … DANCE!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
While Kevin is off sleuthing in Cook County and I’m working on a big project, I thought I’d start an open thread so that you HillBuzzers can share your thoughts of the day. My favorite story of the week had to do with the Ding Dong unions bringing down Hostess. Union people are so stupid they’d rather kill their own jobs rather than negotiate. DUMMYS!
What’s on your mind today?
Do I bring flowers or a fork?
Many of you wonderful HillBuzzers have been asking which businesses have supported the Democrat party so that you can avoid those shops and take your money elsewhere. Well, I’ve compiled a short list below, and if you want to find more businesses to avoid, go to this link at Open Secrets.(My linking is still wacked, so hit the “O” on open secrets). Hope this helps!

Now that we will be forced to live through four more years of the “social justice” dictatorship, I want to remind everyone that the ideas that these marxists regurgitate are not new ones. In this wonderful video from the 70′s, Milton Friedman points out that you can’t have equality first and freedom last. You have to be have liberty first.
This video couldn’t be more pertinent today.
The election is over. People are recouping from the shock, and trying to figure out “what’s next?” I’m not going to be anywhere near the internet for most of the day, so please share your POSITIVE thoughts about our future. I don’t know how long it will take for comments to get approved, as Kevin is taking a break and I’ve got to work, so don’t be surprised if it takes a while for your comment to be approved. And if it’s a nasty comment, it will just go in the trash anyway, so don’t waste your time.
Have a great day, and don’t let the election loss get you down too much. We’re Americans, damn it, and we pick ourselves up and get back in the fight. Don’t ever forget that.
I have two friends who raised morons like these, and I’ll write about it tomorrow. If this is the future generation, then all of the parents of these morons are responsible. I’m sorry, parents, but you raised these clueless, group-think idiots. Take responsibility for it.
Best uplifting message I’ve heard all day.
This is the day. The day we begin to restore our Republic. Vote. Bring your friends out to vote. God blessed this country with more freedom and love than any nation on this earth, but freedom is not free. You have to fight for freedom or you will lose it.
I’m so proud to be a part of HillBuzz, knowing that we have fought every day to inform and engage our readers to get active and to take a stand for this great country. It’s up to us, not the government, to preserve all that we have been given by God.
Bring it home, HillBuzzers. God bless you all.
The victims of hurricane Sandy are still suffering, a week after the storm destroyed their homes and lives. Obama doesn’t even mention it on the campaign trail, and I’m wondering if the voters in New York and New Jersey will turn on Obama because of it. There are over a million people who still don’t have power, and a Noreaster storm is approaching. It’s absolutely disgusting to witness how pathetic the emergency response has been for these people. For God’s sake, we have Navy ships that could have been to those islands in a day with emergency supplies! Look how fast our Navy responded to the tsunami in Japan.
I pray for these people every day, and made my own donation to Salvation Army, but I expect there is going to be huge blow back against the inept Obama administration. What do you think?
