World’s Youngest Blogger Gets The Message Early That You Really Don’t Want To Attend Hudson High

Watching Navy ensure that Army’s timepiece has immaculate works with The World’s Youngest Blogger

(i.e. Army’s clock was cleaned, 27-21, for the 10th straight year, ouch), a few things stuck out:

  • #OccupyResoluteDesk was there, in close proximity to a Navy Jack held by a couple of Mids. That’s likely closer than BHO has been to any Gadsden flag held by Tea Partiers. Yet the exceptional American spirit in the traditional Navy Jack is the very same. Own it!
  • Ten years? Ouch! I thought it was going to be a big deal when Navy was the first to 50 victories in the series.
  • This game in particular, and college sports in general, are more fun, due to the lack of financial incentives for the players. I can hardly bear watching the overpaid prima donnas of the NFL. Copious exceptions to that generalization exist, yet there it is.
  • Sadly, Steve Burri’s PhotoShop skills don’t extend to pasting a winning team on the field for Army.

The World’s Youngest Blogger, at 4.5 months, is teaching me a lot about life. Also: teething, amidst loud, angry shrieks. Especially when he is feeding.

This struck me as a metaphor for the country. Hunger, for food or success, is a phenomenal motivator, no matter how old you are. Yet Progressivism has reduced Americans to an infantile state, via entitlements, that swaddle the teeth like gums in their hatred of competition and capitalism. The #Occupiers are probably the nadir of this devolution to infantilism. So you’re starving, and you really need to eat something, but restoring proper dental facilities means PAIN! Progressivism wants to weaken people to the point that the Nanny State feeding tube is all that will keep them ‘fairly’ alive.

Teething our way through the gummed up entitlement mess is going to hurt. We’re hungry, though. Hungry for liberty, for the chance to have effort receive just reward. And yet these Progressives are going to continue to fear-monger, demagogue the 1%, slaughter legions of strawmen, systemically queer the economic data, and drive generational warfare, rather than just let the country go through a natural process of teething, and move on to adult food.

The worst aspect of Progressivism is paying for the slippery slope to economic feebleness involves taking money from those not yet born. The American Revolution was, inter alia, driven by a hatred of taxation without representation. The 18th century case was more about the distance from London to North America. As our Federal government has taken on the odiousness of the 18th century English Parliament, DC has taken to stealing across time from persons unborn.

Just remember: such stunts are only bad when conservatives do it.

    Very cute, and congratulations. It’s also a day of celebration, here: for the tenth year in a row, my Male did not watch, so (by his logic) Navy won!

    Class of ’87. I think (from the other one I met a while back) they’re persistently pessimistic.

    I haven’t watched much Navy football, either. But now I have the WYB, it’s time to wax nostalgic.

    I can’t believe how big he is getting.  Wow, teething already.  Not a fun time for WYB or for you.

    One can only offer the only piece of eternal wisdom that really applies to every possible situation: This, too, shall pass.
