Score A Win For The Bloggers

Heh, I was reminded of a famous quote from Mahatma Gandhi when I saw this post over at Free North Carolina,

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.”

It's gotta make you feel good to know that those fuckers in government actually feel the unrelenting pressure we put on them.

I know they don't openly acknowledge it very damn often so when they do it is as sweet as a ripe melon on a hot day.

Head on over to Brock's place and watch the video he embedded to truly savor the moment but in the mean time, here is the money quote from Obama himself;

"Now that the government has reopened and this threat to our economy is removed, all of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do, and that’s grow this economy, create good jobs, strengthen the middle class, educate our kids, lay the foundation for broad-based prosperity and get our fiscal house in order for the long haul."

Never give up.

Keep fighting these bastards at every opportunity because it does make a difference!

Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
