Who would have thought it? Poets have dreamed it, 1950s folk groups sang it, dramatists have scripted it, but only one modern western country has, to the knowledge of this self-appointed pundit, ever actually let time run out on the central political cancer. Let's dream a great dream and imagine the day when Babylon-on-the-Potomac goes out of business too -- or better yet, goes back to its original Constitutional job description and patches the document left by the Founding Fathers.
Or, best of all, let's envision the fedgov turning to the Scriptures for its guidance and marching orders!
Belgium No. 1 in days without government
BRUSSELS, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Belgium has been without a government for 250 days -- breaking a modern-day record that was held by Iraq -- and some Belgians managed to joke about it.
Across the country, Belgians marked the event with mock celebrations toasting their non-government leaders who haven't been able to form a working coalition since elections in June, The Guardian reported Friday.
In other news, it's another presidential midterm and the world is witnessing, thank God, another Ron Paul-related money bomb.... whose stunningly fast progress is a rare ray of hope in the ongoing Titanic-like wreckage of the good ship USA. Oddly, I can't get a positive statement out of the person who first emailed me this news, or Wikipedia, or anybody else that our hero is in fact going to run again, but... apparently that's considered the definite meaning.
Say a prayer that ameriKa lasts to the next presidential election and that they don't "suicide" or "accident" this great man as they have so many others. His wife already had an airplane flight that almost ended in midair.
If the great man can raise 700 G's in one day before he's a candidate, what can stop him from going all the way to the White House -- maybe even way ahead of schedule? That would certainly be preferable to riots followed by a military takeover, as in Egypt.

From noted Columbia, SC-area activist Talbert Black comes the following item. GrassRoots GunRights is a large, outstanding Second Amendment organization with its own print newspaper. We hope many of you in SC will answer this call, and those elsewhere will push for similar legislation where you live.
We have the opportunity to expand our right to self defense in South Carolina this year with H.3292. I've been working with GrassRoots GunRights (GRGR) of South Carolina since 1999. They have been defending and expanding your right to keep and bear arms in South Carolina tirelessly and effectively for a long time.
When GRGR calls out the activists they call us Gorillas... because just by sitting in the committee room, watching and recording, we make the legislators as nervous as if there were a bunch of Gorillas in the room watching over their shoulders! So, GrassRoots Gorillas.... unite!
Please see the note below from Bill Rentiers of GRGR and make plans to attend the subcommittee hearing on H3292 on Thursday February 24th, 2011 at 9am in room 516 of the Blatt building.
Thanks for all you do!

*** GrassRoots Gorillas CALL TO ACTION! H. 3292 ***
The House Judiciary General Laws subcommittee has scheduled another meeting on Thursday February 24th, 2011 at 9am in room 516 of the Blatt building to discuss H. 3292.
Every GrassRoots Gorilla who can possibly make it needs to be at this meeting! So please TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS. Pass this email on, and ask everyone to attend. We need this meeting packed full of gun rights supporters to convince the members of the subcommittee to adopt the GrassRoots proposed amendments to H. 3292 and recommend the bill for passage.
As GrassRoots has previously stated, H. 3292 is a very important bill which - if amended properly - could change SC gun laws for the better in a number of ways (open carry, restaurant carry, prohibit employers from banning guns in stored employee's vehicle, etc.) GrassRoots has proposed amendments to fix the problems with H. 3292.
Gorillas should meet on Thursday February 24, 2011 NO LATER THAN 8:45am near the statue of Strom Thurmond on the statehouse grounds. Contact me with any questions.
If you have not already read the GrassRoots analysis of H. 3292 please read it at
.......And we also hope many, many of you will pass the following news on to high schoolers in your lives -- or their parents.

This next item is unexpected -- and sent by one of the patriots with whom I lobbied against Real ID for many days in Columbia. Don't know what to make of it. Our issues guru warns that while Real ID went down in flames in SC its many components are waltzing into legal effect here under other guises. If, in fact, the fedgov is giving up on it, it's real progress.
