Wow – what a week this has been for politics!  We have a real grass roots effort opposing this administration – and what do the politicians do about it – they mock it.  Not only that – but – we have their sheeple repeating exactly what they are saying.  Some of this week’s submissions touch upon this subject a bit – others – well – given the broad spectrum that politics includes – we have some other really great submissions as well.  Cash for Clunkers is another hot topic in this week’s submissions. I encourage you all to visit as many of these as you can.

I would like to thank all the contributors – without your submissions this carnival would not be successful.  I would also like to thank all of you who continue to follow this blog and react to the submissions and for visiting them as well.

Also – I wanted to let everyone know the next edition will not be published until Sunday, August 23d.  My birthday is Monday the 17th – we’re heading off to Disney for that weekend to celebrate my b-day – and – my 5 year old starts kindergarten the week of my b-day – this is our last vacation before he starts school full time.  My blogging will be scarce beginning next Friday continuing in to the following Tuesday.  For my contributors – please continue to submit your articles since they will still be published.

  • jana:

    Not only are they mocking the protests, they’ve set up a snitch hotline.

    I can’t believe there’s anyone in the USA who’s not mortified by the idea of turning in their neighbors for impure thoughts about The One’s programs.

  • Because they’re Democrats, that’s why.

  • Definitely hypocritical.  They were all up in arms that Bush would use wiretaps to spy on terrorists calling in or out of this country – but – they have no problem of citizens spying on their neighbors and report them to the government?  Wait – where have we seen that before – oh – yeah – that’s right – Nazi Germany.

  • TC:

    I dig your blog. Great layout as well. Have been unable to Entrecard drop, so I am leaving a comment until it can get worked out with Entrecard. Thanks for the drop a couple days ago.

  • @TC – thanks for dropping in.  It is appreciated.

  • Have a great birthday! The redesign looks great.

  • @David – thanks – like what you guys have done at your place as well.  I will be updating my blogroll accordingly!


  • @NDFence – wow! Why so serious? ;)   Don’t worry – I won’t be supporting it in any manner.  In case you haven’t read the reports coming out of the CBO – evidently – all this program did was take money from the people and gave it to those who were going to buy a car anyway in September.  All it did was move up the time frame that people were going to buy their car anyway and they got government money to do it.  The CBO says this isn’t going to stimulate the economy or the auto industry at all once all is said and done.

    Additionally, what this program did was create an artificial deficit in the number of used cars available.  The financial times reported that as a result used car prices across the country will rise 5 – 10%.  Guess what – at that rate people may as well buy a new car.  Essentially, this program is going to drive the used car businesses out of business.  Additionally, because the cars are being forced to be scrapped and shredded – this also will drive the spare parts businesses out of business.  Leave it up to idiots like Obama and the dems that have no business experience to just continue to destroy this economy by any means possible.

    I like that new moniker you came up with..conservicans…good one!  BTW – you’re more than welcome to submit an article too…just follow the link at the bottom of the article – or click on BoBo Carnival in the header.
