Barry O explains it all...

I saw this on a blog, and felt I had to reply to some of the most bothersome accusations. If I miss any of these, it was W's fault...

101 Freedoms and Rights the Progressive Left Doesn’t Want You to Have

The Freedom to keep what you earn and spend it as you please.

I support each and every Americans right to earn as much as possible, and the federal governments right to keep those earnings. See, we are on the same page!

The Freedom to take risks, and live with the consequences.

As any good American knows it is the federal governments job to protect us from risky behavior. This is true whether we are talking investments or bizarre sexual behaviors. We got you covered!

The Right to participate in the political process by donating money to causes you support (like Proposition 8 in California) without being harassed by radicals

We are not trying to harass you. We are trying to make you better by accepting our point of view.

The Freedom to work in a shop without belonging to a union.

Why would you want to do that? What's good for GM is good for the country!

The Freedom to use a secret ballot when voting to unionize.

I can't support this secret ballot thing. What would we do with ACORN?

The Freedom to express conservative opinions on talk radio.

You can express any opinion shared by your savior, Barry O. Why would you need other opinions?

The Freedom to express conservative opinions as an invited speaker on a college campus.

Hmmm. I don't think this is a problem. Conservatives are not invited to speak at such events.

The Freedom to express conservative opinion on the Internet.

You can discuss whatever opinions you want- the federal government is monitoring you anyway...

The Freedom to debate whether disparities in achievement among races and sexes is a product of genetics.

This is also a non- starter. Everyone is equal. No need to discuss.

The Freedom to question whether Global Warming is really happening.

I'll pass this one over to Al Gore. I don't really understand all those big words that he uses.

The Freedom to earn a market salary in the Financial Services industry.

You can, so long as the federal government sets the market.

The Freedom not to be pressed into involuntary service to the state.

Well,that’s going to really hurt my plan for Americorps...

The Freedom to purchase and drive an SUV or any other vehicle you choose.

We can also ignore this. Soon GM and Chrysler will be out of this business. (What? What is this Ford you speak of? Everyone knows that you cant run a car company without the Federal government...)

The Freedom to own a pickup truck.

See above.

The Freedom to wear fur, leather, or other material made of a formerly living creature.

EEEEWwwwww. Why would you want to get full of paint?

The Freedom to fire an employee for any reason, or for no reason at all.

I believe in this- it's why if fired Gerald Walpin

The Freedom to join with others to criticize a politician within 30 days of an election.

You can criticize any Republican you like- even before the 30 days are up.

The Right to carry a firearm in public for your own defense.

Why would you need to do that. Doesn’t everyone have armed guards?

The Freedom to discuss a military career with a recruiter at a public school or university, as well as the right to participate in ROTC.

I never understood the military and probably never will...

The Freedom to purchase health care in a free market.

My health care plan is better, regardless of what the numbers say. Really, a 15% value added tax is so little to pay to ensure the same amount of people...

The Freedom to choose a school for your child.

The government already chooses a school for you. Why put forth the extra effort for your little curses?

The Freedom for private schools to compete on an equal footing with public schools.

My daughters private school is doing just fine...

The Freedom to fire an incompetent public school teacher.

You forgot the word tenure, didn't you?

Well, I'm tired now- time to get back to ignoring the situation in Iran...


"governments job to protect us from risky behavior?" Two words for you Barry0 "Bill" and "Humpy". I'm afraid your protection is selective!

Yes, Bill and Humpy have become fast friends

Oh Barry O! I am so impressed with your liberal dose of political logic.

I often impress myself, Joe. Nive that someone else noticed!
