you think King George would have taken away the colonist's guns, if he could.

the colonists did not win our freedoms with sit-ins.

yes, Paul Revere's ride was about the 2nd Amendment.

question: does anybody trust this person with nuclear weapons?

There was a picture of him on his horse in my history book in 7th Grade. The horse had an NRA bumpersticker on its butt.

i think we absolutely can tie the 2nd Amendment back to the Revolutionary War, but to say that Paul Revere's ride was about "warnin' the British not to take our arms" is lunacy.

Yeah, that's weird. It's all a strange mumble jumble of I don't quite know what. And yes, suddenly all these previously unknown "facts" about Paul and his ride are coming to light

I heard he played for the Bruins too

CHICAGO (AP/The Huffington Post) -- Republican Tim Pawlenty was set to propose an economic policy Tuesday that would simplify individual tax rates to just three options and cut taxes on business by more than half as he offered himself as a replacement to Barack Obama in the Democratic president's hometown.

"President Obama is a champion practitioner of class warfare," Pawlenty will say, according to advance excerpts. "He has spent three years dividing our nation, fanning the flames of class envy and resentment to deflect attention from his own failures and the economic hardship they have visited on America."

The former Minnesota governor also was to propose that any services available privately, such as the postal services or mortgages, should not be something government handles. He said he would require a vote in Congress to extend any regulation or he would cancel it. And he said he would eliminate taxes on investments and inheritances.

"But our policies can't just be about simply cutting rates. They must also promote freedom and free markets," Pawlenty said in excerpts provided ahead of the morning speech at the University of Chicago.

Pawlenty's speech, his first as a declared presidential candidate, also kept an eye on presidential politics and blamed Obama for an anemic economy. He said Americans are ready to innovate and create jobs, but "they have been discouraged and weighed down by President Obama's big government and heavy-handed regulations."

In a speech expected to be heavy on specifics, Pawlenty was ready to propose a three-tier income tax system:

_ The estimated 45 percent of U.S. households that did not pay income taxes in 2010 would see no change in their tax rates.


_ Individuals would pay 10 percent tax on the first $50,000 of income. Couples earning $100,000 would also pay that rate.

_ "Everything above that would be taxed at 25 percent," Pawlenty said.

He also wanted to cut business taxes, reducing the current rate from 35 percent to 15 percent.

Our legislature is about to shut down state services because of the wrangling and gridlock over the budget mess he left in Minnesota.

I'm guessing his wife handles the checkbook. Pawlenty is useless.

I get called from time to time.

I think it is because I have voted in every election in the last 30 years.
So I qualify as "a likely voter".

Also, I have had the same phone number since 1987.

Sarah Palin's tour a rolling menace - Kasie Hunt - POLITICO.com

SEABROOK, N.H. — Sarah Palin’s bus is plastered with a mock-up of the U.S. Constitution. But her entourage — both the three-vehicle motorcade that includes the bus and the smaller, two-SUV version she uses for smaller events — hasn’t been very respectful of traffic laws.

They speed. They run red lights and stop signs. They make last-second lane changes to get off the highway, sometimes without signaling.

So do the reporters following them.

Journalists in the caravan trailing her “One Nation” tour bus describe the experience as harrowing, a rolling menace careening up the East Coast in hot pursuit of the former Alaska governor who declined to provide any advance itinerary of her tour over six days on the road.

As they left the clambake she attended Thursday in New Hampshire, Palin’s two-SUV caravan traveled at 52 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone as it peeled away from the hosts’ neighborhood. Both cars blew through a stop sign about a mile later. They did 70 mph in a 55 mph zone on I-95 — and then, after they got off, without signaling, flew right past a flashing sign informing them they were going 45 mph in a 35 mph zone.

And that was after they had already stormed the major cities — and just missed driving through a tornado on the road into Boston.

On Tuesday, the bus nearly hit a biker turning off of Pine Street in Philadelphia.

On Wednesday, after a police escort led the bus through a closed section of the Lincoln Tunnel, the bus ran at least two red lights racing up Sixth Avenue and through Columbus Circle in Midtown Manhattan. Before long, a cop pulled up, pointing out to the first reporter trailing the bus how many lights they were running. The reporter apologized — but begged to stick with the bus. The perplexed cop let him go.

On Thursday, the story was much the same. Palin’s two SUVs — used for minor events and tight spaces — braved the tiny, winding streets of Boston’s North End. And when the bus joined them, the trailing car in the entourage ran two red lights after the bus barely made it through the yellow, as did the media caravan, leaving behind a traffic jam for the locals.

The reporters who are speeding, tailgating, cutting off other cars, blasting through roundabouts and passing on the right in an effort to keep up, say they have no other choice since they never know what Palin’s up to or where she’s headed — and aides typically won’t tell them anything. Once they’re on the road, they’re filing urgent updates by phone and figuring out unorthodox bathroom breaks, like the reporter who pulled over to relieve himself on the side of the highway going from Gettysburg, Pa., to Philadelphia — drawing notice from both Palin aides and the rest of the trailing press.

“It’s like paparazzi,” said one reporter who followed Palin to the Thursday evening clambake. “It’s like following Princess Diana.”

Although I am a fan of reforming the tax system's complexities, Pawlenty is trotting out the same old misguided ''taxcuts for corporations so that they can turn around and send more U.S. jobs overseas'' plan.

He pushed through his "Job Z" program in the state which offered significant tax incentives to corporations that hired people in depressed areas of the state. It's widely viewed as a failure. Again, supply-side bullshit: cut taxes and businesses will flourish and jobs will be created.
Well, not if there is no demand for the product or service.
