Scott Brown, the Democrats, and the Battle of Midway

The day Scott Brown was busy getting elected to the U.S. Senate, I was busy dealing with the medical emergency of a family member.

I got home, exhausted, just in time to watch Brown's victory speech. Spouse and I sat there, watching a speech that exceeded our hopes. Sometime during the course of that speech, Spouse turned to me and observed, sagely: "This is the Battle of Midway defeat for the Democrats."


At the Battle of Midway, fought six months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese lost four of their major assets in their World War II arsenal of aggression, namely, four aircraft carriers, a loss from which they were unable to recover:

Prior to this action, Japan possessed general naval superiority over the United States and could usually choose where and when to attack. After Midway, the two opposing fleets were essentially equals, and the United States soon took the offensive.
The analogy seems particularly apt because these ships carried aircraft, which in turn carried destructive devices, not unlike four of the vehicles in the Progressive arsenal of aggression: health care deform, cap and tax, civilian trials for foreign terrorists committing acts of war, and instant citizenship for illegal aliens.

Each of these four goals are carriers of further devices of the Progressive agenda intended to destroy many Constitutional protections by means of the takeover of huge chunks of the U.S. economy, the guarantee of American citizen's rights for enemy combatants at the expense of American lives and treasure, and the practical institution of a one-party system in the U.S.

Scott Brown and the people of Massachusetts, with the support and encouragement of the rest of the country, have sunk those vessels.

Now we need to keep up the fight. And we will, I have no doubt.

Note: Thanks for dropping in to read this post. For the present, I'll be spending considerable time focused on the recovery of someone near and dear. I'll be posting when I can.



  1. I hope everything is alright with your ill family member. My wife and I will both be sure to say a few extra prayers for you and your loved ones.

  2. Excellent context for this critical issue. Well done! Also, I don't know if it was intentional or not, but your reference to 'health care deform' is actually a perfect term for what they're doing. :)

    PS - prayers for you and your family...

  3. Thanks, guys. Your good wishes and prayers are much appreciated. Things are going well!
