To Serve Man

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama urged Americans on Saturday to recall the spirit that united the country after the September 11 attacks and take part in a national day of service to mark the anniversary next month. [Hmm...yes, I do recall that--people helping people, nothing to do with sacrificing time and effort for the .gov]

In remarks acknowledging the "great challenges" that confront the U.S. economy[that is, impossible to overcome], and could hurt his reelection chances next year[ya think?], Obama also sought to rise above the partisan political rancor that has divided Washington all summer[LOL].

"As we mark this solemn anniversary, let's summon that spirit once more. And let's show that the sense of common purpose that we need in America doesn't have to be a fleeting moment; it can be a lasting virtue[i.e. collectivism is good--and should be indefinite part of this HM]," Obama said in his weekly radio address.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.--Ayn Rand


The goal of the “liberals”—as it emerges from the record of the past decades—was to smuggle this country into welfare statism by means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named. Thus, statism was to come, not by vote or by violence, but by slow rot—by a long process of evasion and epistemological corruption, leading to a fait accompli. (The goal of the “conservative” was only to retard that process.)

The moral cannibalism of all hedonist and altruist doctrines lies in the premise that the happiness of one man necessitates the injury of another.--Ayn Rand

Dear President Obama, public servant:
Eat me.


  1. Bravo,got your service, OBummer! A day to remember fallen Americans is Great! A day of Communism not got gonna Happen! Once more why are first responders banned? Oh yeah They seen all the weird shit that went on! Truth be Damned!


  2. The only thing I will serve is fresh stripper clips to whoever is beside me firing my other Mosin Nagant when the jackboots come calling. Though the ammo box will be between us, so they can get their own damn clips...

  3. No doubt about a Mosin's stopping power, but I would rather have a semiauto .308. Can only benefit from not having to cycle that bolt for every shot.
    Never liked the Mosin much, truth be told. Come to think of it, I think my shoulder still hurts, too. ;-)

  4. I think a 9/11 Commemorative New Shooter Range Day would be both fun and productive.

  5. Sir: Here in the west, in the cattle business, being 'serviced' feels strangely similar to our
    plight with the government......Ken
