Dear Mr. Lankford,

Congratulations on winning your run-off against Kevin Calvey. It is my fervent hope that as many candidates as possible win their elections to the House of Representatives who will stand up to the tyrannical depredations of the likes of Pelosi and Reid.

HOWEVER: I do want you to know that if you devote your time and energy in Congress to making my moral decisions for me rather than cutting the size of government, I WILL work to have you replaced in the next elections. I have no intentions of merely replacing a tyranny of the Left with a tyranny of the Right.

China closing 2000 factories

This is definitely a wake-up call for anyone who thinks China has moved beyond communism in any substantial way:
In Crackdown on Energy Use, China to Shut 2,000 Factories

HONG KONG — Earlier this summer, Prime Minister Wen Jiabao of China promised to use an “iron hand” to improve his country’s energy efficiency, and a growing number of businesses are now discovering that it feels like a fist.

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology quietly published a list late Sunday of 2,087 steel mills, cement works and other energy-intensive factories required to close by Sept. 30.
How many people will be out of a job thanks to this?

Looks like a new version of Mao's "Cultural Revolution", only this time the goal is a "culture" of "energy efficiency".

Who lacks faith in the American people?

At Chicago Ford Plant, Obama Says Critics Lack Faith in Americans
Really, Mr. President? Who has more faith in the American people: the government who treats them as incompetents incapable of running their own lives without government intervention, or those Americans fighting to keep the freedom to live their lives by their own decisions?
