Just Say It

One of my many nieces updated her facebook status with:

... is excited about watching The Bachelor tonight...yeah I said it...:)

And I heard Mark Levin call Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd 'socialists and criminals that should be prosecuted', or words to that effect. He followed it up with:

That's right! I said it!

And I've recently discovered a smartass southern author, Celia Rivenbark. "That's right, I said it" is implied in the title of most of her books:

"We're Just Like You, Only Prettier"
"Stop Dressing Your Six Year Old Like a Skank"
and soon to be released ...
"You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start in the Morning"

I like that attitude. It's refreshing. It's brash and confident and courageous. It's John Wayne saying, when told everything isn't black and white, "Why the hell not?" It's an American kind of attitude ... straightforward, sincere, unapologetic ... and we need more of it. It's in that spirit that I offer the following:

The so-called "stimulus" package is more about political payback and entrenching the Democrat party than it is about doing the right thing for the country.

If it takes a TV commercial to convince you to "ask your doctor" about a prescription drug, you probably aren't sick.

If you are poor, unemployed or economically disadvantaged and you vote for Democrats, you should add stupid to your list of problems because big government is not your friend.

The only things that work well in public education are the athletic programs because coaches are paid well, they actually get to coach and if they can't coach they are fired. Teachers should be treated the same way.

Everyone should own a gun and know how to use it.

U2. Not that great.

That's right. I said it.
