My weekend.

This weekend I went to the Federalist Society’s Student Symposium at Yale Law School. The topic was Separation of Powers in American Constitutionalism and it was an amazing conference that included distinguished Law Professors, Federal Judges and even former Ambassador to the United Nations, John R. Bolton.

The Symposium ended with a banquet which included an address by the Honorable Laurence H. Silberman, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Judge Silberman spoke on the topic of Honor and how the idea of honor has seemed to have left our country and in particular how there seems to very little honor in those who serve the public.

He pointed to the many “tell-all” books that come out as soon as a public servant leaves his office or position. These books are often served up as red meat to the opposition of whomever is in power and he spoke of the danger this practice brings. His speech will eventually be posted and I will link it when it is.

I also notice a lack of honor in most people these days, not just in the public realm but everywhere. Yet I agree with Judge Silberman (I think he would say I was wise to do so) that it is worse in the Public Realm.

To me, Obama and Joe Biden are examples of public servants who have no honor. Obama blames everything on the previous administration, even tho there is plenty of blame to go around including his own actions (or in-actions, Obama did enjoy simply voting “present”). When we were attacked on 9/11 the hi-jackers had been in our country for years under Clinton. The press loved to discuss the memo about Bin Laden “determined to attack in the U.S.” as an example of Bush ignoring threats. Clinton not only saw such a memo, he even created one himself and yet did nothing to stop those who were training in our country under his watch.

Bush NEVER blamed Clinton.

EVER.

Pundits blamed Clinton, I blame Clinton but Bush never once said “I inherited these terrorists” the way that Obama claims to have inherited the economy. Obama has no Honor.

Biden is worse. Biden has no Honor and he has no class. Biden’s attacks on those he disagrees with are legendary. Just look at his behavior at any of the last few Supreme Court Justices. He has no issue with outright lies if it serves his purpose and he will never shrink from slimming an opponent with personal attacks at the drop of a hat.

These two men are now in charge of our country, put there by making people believe in “hope”.

I want to vote for a candidate who displays honor.

I had a paper due today that I completely rewrote at the last minute because I didn’t think the original one was any good. Then I had class, now I am waiting for my next class at 6pm and then when I get out at 7:30 I am heading to DC for the Federalist Society’s National Lawyers Convention. There’s a good chance I will be a drooling imbecile by the time I get to my hotel. Already I have had to use spell check just to make sure I spelled two-letter words correctly.

But never let it be said I didn’t bring you info from around the world.

Here is an article by Mike S. Adams, who I consider the modern right-wing Jonathan Swift.

Here’s Chuck Norris because…well he’s CHUCK NORRIS!!!! He’s also dead on, but then Chuck Norris is always “dead” on.

Here is the National Review’s take on Obama’s AG.

“To be blunt, Holder is a terrible selection. If there’s any Obama cabinet nomination that Republicans feel moved to oppose, this should be it.”

Here is another brialliant essay by Thomas Sowell:

 Here’s Michelle Malkin pointing out what is wrong with the Republican party:

Finally I hereby officially call this movie out as the worst Star Trek movie EVER, it will be worse than StarTrek: The Motionless Picture, worse than StarTrek: Save the Whales, worse than StarTrek: The Clone Wars, worse than StarTrek: Let’s combine old and new to create suckage, worse than StarTrek: Let’s Find God, worse than StarTrek: No one even remembers this one between the borg and the clone wars. This will be StarTrek: Let’s piss on everything you love, I have the reins now.

I will be gone for the next three days for the convention and it is unlikely I will be posting. Chin up that just means you’ll be that much happier for my return.

Bibble!!
