Saturday Afternoon Links: The Vacation Photo Edition

I was going through more of our vacation photos from last week’s trip to Lake Michigan and here are a few more of my favorites.

CoF has a post that I couldn’t agree more with (and quite honestly wish I could write it as well as Jim did): Why America Should Not Support Moderate or Centrist Republicans in 2012

All governments tend towards tyranny. Governments like to govern and the nature of the beast is to want always want to govern more. They, therefore, write more and more laws and regulations that put more power in the hands of the government and less and less in the hands of governed.

Our Founders understood very well the nature of government. This is why the constitution they produced for this new experiment called The United States of America, had very specific enumerated powers for the Federal Government and all powers not enumerated were left to the states and the people. We would do well at this point to recall the famous quote of Benjamin Franklin when asked by a woman what they had done for the people, and I paraphrase here, “We have given you, madam, a republic, if you can keep it.”

Be sure to nominate you favorite liberal for the prestigious CH2.0 Useful Idiot for the month of August.

      Glad you like the pic’s and you are very welcome!

  • Mike August 27, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    Nice pics. Thanks for the link.

    • steve August 27, 2011 at 8:51 pm

      I’m already wanting to go back on vacation. You are most welcome for the linkage.

  • Jim at Conservatives on Fire August 27, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    Steve, thank you for the kind words and thanks for the link.

    • steve August 27, 2011 at 8:52 pm

      It was an excellent (per usual) post.

  • proof August 27, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    Thanks for the link! It seems that the photos I do the least amount of work on are the most likely to go viral. I think if I could stop all activity whatsoever, I’d be King of the Internet (or at least a candidate for Congress…)

    • steve August 27, 2011 at 8:55 pm

      I cracked up when I saw that picture. Great work, and you would make a much better congressman than what we have today.

  • John Carey August 27, 2011 at 9:50 pm

    Great pictures Steve. Thanks for the link.

    • steve August 27, 2011 at 10:12 pm

      Thanks! And you are very welcome for the linkage. You guys are doing great work.

  • Cynical Synapse August 28, 2011 at 10:14 am

    As always, thanks for the link. Great pics. I miss West Michigan.

    Interesting scorecard at MTTM. Dumbfounding Stabinaw doesn’t even rate 0.01%! Dingbat and Sen. Levin are the next lowest, at 4% and 5%. At least my Rep. Levin managed to barely break into double digits. Those clowns all need to go.

  • Bunkerville August 28, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Thanks so much for the link. Power back up! Bye Irene!

    • steve August 28, 2011 at 2:07 pm

      Glad to hear everything is returning to normal.
