Git yer gol-durn gubmint outta mah flu shot

Your lazy and distracted blogger – ME – is temporarily reduced to the borrow/steal method of posting. If all goes well, I shall resume regular blogging shortly.

Meanwhile, I just picked this up at The Conservative Lie. A fine construct describing one of my favorite subjects.

    This morning I, an American conservative, was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy.

    I then took a shower in the clean water provided by a municipal water utility.

    After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC-regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like, using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

    I watched this while eating my breakfast of U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    At the appropriate time, as regulated by the U.S. Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank.

    On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the U.S. Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

    After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and Fire Marshal’s inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

    And then I log on to the internet — which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration — and post on and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can’t do anything right.

  4. Anybody clicked thru to the ‘American Conservative’ link? So what’s the Green Day connection?


  5. Dunno – Dave added the link on cons-lie.

    @Mr-Chaplian, excuse the two posts about Hillbuzz, long story short, Hillbuzz is a disgusting stalker site and it is now falling apart. I’m enjoying the fall out.
