Sir Guy: No only has she consorted with this Saxon rebel, found guilty of outlawing, theft, murder addiction, and high treason but she has betrayed her own Norman people. Are you not ashamed My Lady Marion?
Maid Marion: Yes I am, bitterly, but it’s a shame that I’m a Norman ater seeing the things my fellow countrymen had done to England. At first I wouldn’t believe, because I was a Norman I wouldn’t let myself believe that the Horrors you inflicted on the Saxon weren’t just and right. I know now why you tried so hard to kill this outlaw that you despise to a lot of beasts who were drunk on human blood.

Lazarus: Captain, you yourself said there were no other explanations. Why do you give credence to this man?
Mr. Spock: I fail to comprehend your indignation, sir. I’ve simply made the logical deduction that you are a liar.

That’s all I can stands, I can’t Stands no more!
Years ago when Rush Limbaugh was talking about the “Constitutional Option” I balked.
The only way a republic works is if the rights of the minority are respected by the majority. After all if 51% of the people in the world decided to strip 49% of their voting rights that is a democratic result, yet would not not be justice.
I concluded that as much as I wanted to see the Bush Nominees advance there were things I simply could not agree to. there were lines I just could not agree to cross.
And then came Obamacare, Fast and Furious, the IRS and the Tea Party, the phony war on women, the Press Freedoms, the tagging of believing Christians as “bigots”, Benghazi and now finally Harry Reid and the Nuclear Option.
The time for all people of sound mind to conclude that our friends on the left in the congress are not acting in an honorable way is upon us.
I’ve been warning that eventually the right is going to be pushed to a point of no return. We aren’t there yet but we are at the point politically.
The GOP should assume from this point on that democrats in congress are acting in bad faith and not forget it. Jonathan H. Adler put it best
That means that despite Jake Tapper’s suggestion to the contrary we must not politically turn the other cheek, we must prepare and be prepared to act.
And while I think this fallout should and MUST happen, it should not be done in the way the left and their friends in the media expect.
I suggest it be done the Sicilian way.
What does the Sicilian way mean? Well that’s a post for next week.
Update: Jake Tapper tweets some confusion concerning that sentence above , I’m referring to his interview on the lead with Sen Dan Coats where he asks this question:
“…will you commit right now that if you guys, if the republicans take back the senate that you will return things to the way they were a day ago.”
It’s not an unfair question since the argument is on principle but it’s analogous to giving Baseball teams the right to use the DH when they are up in NL parks, The Red Sox Choosing to use it against St Louis and the Cardinals being asked to hit their pitchers out of principle.
the follow up question I found almost as amusing:
Now there’s some talk by republicans that well if we get majority next year in 2014 in the midterms we won’t keep it 51 votes for judicial nominees & for executive nominations maybe we’ll do it for legislation too. that would be a step backward as well right? that would be bad?
Again not an unfair question but it again implies it’s up to the GOP to take a punch and not throw it and both questions (while fair) in my opinion establish what will be the left’s talking points once they are in the minority.
