    We Have Work To Do

    I am in-between flights at this moment, and thought I might share a little something about the Righty Blogosphere.

    The well being of our nation might well fall on the reporting and writing done here, on other conservative blogs, and in new media in general.  

    The dead tree media has no interest in printing the whole truth.  Obama's pet peacock is certainly not going to offer a scintilla of balanced challenge to the president, even while their stockholders take some of the hits that come with a failing economy.  CNN?  Right.  None of the news 'giants' are expected to offer a fair balance of criticism towards 'the won', and Romney might have gains seen, only to be followed up by another revealing look at his childhood; perhaps a toilet papering incident.

    And THEN we have to deal with the folks who don't seem to like us so much (as we pad their electoral majorities) like Brooks Patterson.  Someone who might consider a veteran and engineer unsuitable because he cannot be put underfoot.  That kind of battle is unnecessary and unfortunately bruises feelings a bit.  It stresses the relationships we need in the November cycle.  The one's that used to spawn THEIR question: "will you support our guy in Nov?"

    We have.  Will they reciprocate?

    With a multifaceted task at hand, we proceed.  We have a responsibility to provide the truth, and speak out for our true conservative brothers.  We also can have some fun in the meantime.

    My final flight is in 40 minutes.  Go below the fold and enjoy.

    The 2012 RightOnline conference was non stop information and tool sharing.

    A couple of events, including an Andrew Breitbart tribute, and "Occupy Unmasked" screening, als included this treat.

    ..."Will they reciprocate?"

    Well, that is if Conservatives don't f#@% up again like smokers did by not placing a cost on smoke free air.  A reminder.

    The most fundamental principle of economics is the law of demand, which postulates that the higher the cost of a behavior, the less people will do of it, while the lower the cost, the more people will do of it. The law of demand applies to any behavior, and I'm going to apply it to anti-smoking behavior. First, let's get the health issue out of the way because it has no relevancy to the particular principle under examination, which is how people respond to the cost of something.

    The cost to nonsmokers to impose their will on smokers, say, in a restaurant, bar or airplane, is zero, or close to it. They just have to get the legislature to do their bidding. When the cost of something is zero, there's a tendency for people to take too much of it. You say, "Williams, in my book, there can never be too much smoke-free air!" Here's a little test. Say your car's out of gas and stuck in a blizzard. You wave me down for assistance. I say, "I'll be glad to give you a lift to safety, but I'm smoking in my car." How likely is it that you'll turn down my assistance in an effort to avoid tobacco smoke? You might be tempted to argue, "That's different." It's not different at all. The cost of a smoke-free environment is not what you're willing to pay.

    Rest here

    Conservatives have yet to make the cost of being a Centrist/Moderate a costly proposition, but it appears that the pendulum is now in swing.

    That is a good thing.
