Young Americans for Liberty

Young Americans for Liberty

Young Americans for Liberty is the continuation of the Students for Ron Paul organization which had established chapters nationwide during the election. While many if not most American youth remain sympathetic to Obama, this enthusiastic group of young libertarians and conservatives will spend inauguration day passing out literature on college campuses nationwide, explaining how Obama doesn’t represent any change at all. Calling the event “Real Change Requires Revolution” the group’s website states that Obama “promises more foreign intervention, more socialism, more restrictions on our civil liberties, and a greater disregard for the Constitution.” While the mainstream Right remains silent on Bush, yet won’t shut up about Obama, these young peoples’ goal is to convince their peers that the incoming president won’t amount to much precisely because he will be much like the last one. Their message is not only Right, but refreshing.

Elba, Towelheads, & Dog-Fighting Quarterbacks

Speaking of terrible thoughts, I’d like to make souvlaki out of those towels who go around calling themselves princes and demand that we adhere to their primitive customs about women. The oil-rich emir of Qatar might not like his female relatives to fly next to European men who are strangers, but then he should provide them with a flying carpet, instead of holding up a plane in boiling Milano. The BA pilot was terrific in throwing the bums off, but he should have done it earlier. Screw these pests; who the hell do they think they are? We should take their oil by force and let them eat sand for a while.
