Michael Bowers: Don't Let 'em Take the Car!

Michael Bowers, columnist for The Star, thinks that liberal gun grabbers have their eyes on your car next.

You see, the car shares many characteristics of the gun, that other invention which is so loathed by the progressive. He dislikes the car for two main reasons:

*First, just like the gun, the car can be expensive. I suspect many a progressive has trouble affording the car he really wants, because he works for a nonprofit Bush-bashing group, rather than a company that actually manufactures a useful product. Why should greedy conservatives get all the heated leather seats?

This is the gripe of the broke progressive.

*Second, just like the gun, the car provides the ordinary citizen extraordinary empowerment. As Stephen Moore wrote recently in the Wall Street Journal, it's a lot harder for the government to manipulate the working man when he can travel anywhere he wants to, at any time, for any reason.

This is the gripe of the wealthy progressive.

Read it all here. It's funny...but also has a scarily truthful ring to it.

It is a good read, except when he gets off on this "Nazis as Rightists" thing. We need to push people away from this notion. Nazi means National Socialist. They were big government socialists, just like their Soviet brethren. As other socialist nations often need scapegoats, Jews were the scapegoats for past German failures.

Another related notion is that Nazis were Christians. The Nazi party philosophy was paganism. A few years ago, while surfing the web, I ran across a neo-Nazi website and they stated that the Gospels were a "Jewish invention", well Jesus was a Jew, but I don't think that's what they meant.

Sorry to go off on this tangent. Our dog woke me up an hour earlier than I wanted and I couldn't get back to sleep.
