"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

Senator Tom Coburn on Morning Joe

Found the link on Twitter for Joe Scarborough of Dr. Tom Coburn's interview on Morning Joe this morning which is very enlightening on what is happening in the Senate. This is a must see video and one that will make your blood boil.  For starters the US Government is spending $51,000 per child on 16 military bases in this country who still have schools. Dr. Coburn tried to submit an amendment to end this $1B gambit and send $12,000 per student to the public schools closing schools on stateside military basis.  The amendment was never heard as Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) refused to hear that amendment or any other amendment. The Senate is locked in a standstill. Problem also is on the Republican side where they cannot even get a majority to stand for smaller government.

Oklahoma has done its part in sending Senators Coburn and Inhofe to the Senate who are no nonsense types; now time for some other states to do the same. Noted the fact that Joe and Dr. Tom talked about how they had to confront Newt with some other members of Congress because Gingrich was not a small government conservative and wanted to spend, spend, spend. The truth is coming out on Gingrich more and more that he is not a fiscal conservative or small government person.

We agree with Joe Scarborough in his last remarks on football -- Go Sooners -- Beat the Pokes and send Alabama to the National Championship and add send the Sooners to The Fiesta Bowl.
