Insult or compliment?

July 11th, 2007

Krshorewood at folkbum’s rambles and rants probably thought he was insulting conservative Milwaukee radio host Charlie Sykes when he wrote:

“His career has always been about obstruction, viagra sale online not construction.”

But I think most conservatives (and all libertarians) would say that’s one of the highest compliments you could pay a person.

There are already too many laws, clinic too many taxes, recipe too many fees, too much nannying.

We don’t need to “construct” more government regulations, programs, or methods of redistributing the wealth.

Obstructing the unrestrained growth of government at all levels is actually more productive (and praiseworthy), than adding another layer of laws to the deep pile that is already slowly smothering private commerce and individual freedoms.

Less is more, baby.

And sometimes a little obstruction is exactly what’s needed to make some real progress.

    well said after seeing the machine the Libs have built over the last 40 + years all you can think is

    “how can I help tear this thing down or gum up the gears” Anything to slow the growth of the Tax monster.

    Further, I always hate it when folks on our side get all hyped up about Congress’ perpetually low approval ratings. Distrust in government, no matter who is leading it, is always, always, always a good thing.

    This is posted by one of your comrades over at GOP3 today.

    It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

    Robert F. Kennedy, Cape Towne, South Africa, June 1966

    If Sykes is content to be a turd in the colon of the Body Politic, more power to him. At least he’s found something he’s good at.
