Yes, he’s historic, alright (new items denoted by ••• prefix).
President Obama will neither sign government funding bills that slash domestic spending nor negotiate to reduce the federal debt limit.
The president was not going to accept a budget in which domestic spending is further cut to soften the blow to Defense spending.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Wonderfully expressed, Zo! It’s about the standards, the ideal we hope to strive for.

MESSAGE TO OUR FAILING ELECTORATE:
We’ve been watching you for a long time. We have written you, made telephone calls and visited your offices. You have ignored us. You have failed us. You have denigrated, ridiculed and insulted us.
The economy is failing. You say the recession is over; for you, your lobbyists and large corporations maybe, but not for me and my neighbors.
Unemployment remains near 10% while underemployment is 17%.
You shoved down or throats, a burdensome healthcare legislation which will tax us all to high heaven, for starters and you strive to give illegal immigrants rights while treading upon the rights of the citizenry.
ENOUGH! We will have none of it. It’s time to pay the piper. Party over.
Starting with the midterm elections, we, the people, are voting you out.
By the end of the election 2010 season, you will be unemployed.
BUT don’t despair (as if you care). All is not lost. Listed below are employment recommendations and employment applications.

Special Editorial: Repeal
A one-word agenda for Republicans.
March 22, 2010 9:00 AM
The editors of National Review sensibly counsel conservatives, in the wake of last night’s victory for Obamacare: “‘Nil desperandum’–never despair.” I agree, though I’m more inclined to the mock-Latin motto of the Harvard band: “Illegitimi non carborundum”–don’t let the bastards get you down.
Why not? Because we can repeal it.
As National Review’s editors explain (and see also the strong Wall Street Journal editorial this morning), this legislation “will increase taxes, increase premiums, and increase debt, while decreasing economic growth, job growth, and the quality of health care.” So it will–if it is allowed to go into effect.
Luckily, key parts of Obamacare–especially the subsidies–don’t go into effect until 2014. So what Republicans have to do is to make the 2010 and the 2012 elections referenda on Obamacare, win those elections, and then repeal Obamacare.
Of course that can’t be the whole message in 2010 and 2012. Of course there will be other important issues. And even on this issue, the message will have to be not just repeal but also replace–replace Obamacare with sensible reforms. What’s more, working out exactly how to repeal and replace the parts of the legislation that will already be in effect is an important task, one to which I know Paul Ryan has already given some thought.
But the details of the replacing and reforming are secondary. Repeal is the heart of the matter. It should be the heart of the message. Think of it this way: This year Obama has handed Republicans a one-item Contract with America, an item a majority of the public supports–opposition to, and therefore repeal of, Obamacare.
Barack Obama was able to muscle his health care plan through, and therefore avoided a legislative defeat that Sen. Jim DeMint had said would be his Waterloo. But Waterloo was always an imperfect analogy. Leaving aside the injustice to Napoleon of comparing Obama to him, the better analogy is Borodino.
