Carnival of the Liberals

Here ye, Here ye!  Gather one and all, for the Carnival is here!

Around the Know it All house, a junior Know it All is currently obsessed with road maps.  Oy, if I hear one more question about Interstate such and such and its crossings, I think junior will not make it to see tomorrow.  Or if he shows me one more satellite photo from Google Earth.  (Yes, junior Know it All has seen your house.  I don’t care who you are or where you live, I guarantee he’s memorized your back yard–by the way, are you ever going to weed that garden?)  So to honor my pain, here’s the Carnival of the Liberals, a tour of the Liberal world.

 Start first over in jolly old England, the place where true liberalism reigns.  Liberal England has a piece on Orwellian tatics using simple crime cameras.  From the Know it All’s recent travels to the home country, we can attest that speed cameras are ubiquitous, and they are EVIL!

 Once you’ve maneuvered through Gatwick, hop a flight over to a Commonwealth country, Canada, and read Tickle Me Bitter’s expose of Canadian strong arm tactics.

 While you’re in Canada, admire their health care system.  For all of its foibles, at least they have it.  More and more Americans are living without it.  Or should we say, they don’t pay for it, we do, through our taxes and their uncovered expenses.  But Dr Biobrain argues it much more coherently than I do.  Read his Freemarket Health Care for Dummies.  Make sure to read it all, taking time to revel in his description of the conservative mind.

From Canada, hop a train on down to North Carolina, where Screwy Hoolie exposes himself for the world to see.  Its a great story of what one common man can do to change the system.  Don’t forget to do a bit of hiking and enjoy those beautiful Smoky Mountains!

Hike on over to the Appalachian Trail, enjoy the scenery and imagine what the world would be like without such wonderful natural landscapes.  Think about our environmental impact, then read 21st Century Citizen’s piece on The New Values of the 21st Century Citizen.  What change can you make to express your values?

Our last stop is Iowa, home of the first Presidential Primary.  Check out Frozen Toothpaste’s How John McCain Would Lose the “War on Terror”.  Wrap up our liberal tour with Divided We Stand, United We Fall’s blog on presidential candidate Chris Dodd, affectionately titled The dude with white hair – A Dood Tube Surge .

That’s the end of the tour.  Thanks to everyone for their amazing submissions, and for your patience.

About Little Miss Know it All

Well, well, well, what a long and strange road its been to get to Contentquake. So, who am I and why should you read what I have to say? I don’t know. Why are you? Seriously, my name is Heather, more commonly known around these parts as Little Miss Know It All. I like to write, I like to share my opinions, and I love to give advice. So I guess that makes me a Know it All. I figure, embrace who you are! Politics are one of my many passions, one passion that I actually followed for several years, working for campaigns in the midwest region. A mayoral race, a congressional race, and so on. The twist is, I’m an evangelical christian, but I’m not a republican. I’m a tried and true, solid, tree hugging, unabashed Democrat. So that’s what I’ll be writing about—the world of politics according to Little Miss Know it All. Join me on this fun ride, comment on what I write, enjoy this wild, wild world of politics. Just please, don’t bash other’s opinions because they aren’t your own. I believe in respect, even with those I disagree with. Feel free to disagree, just be respectful. As my mother used to say “Everyone’s entitled to their own stupid opinions.” And so are you. Welcome!

  1. No biggie, but the name is “Doctor Biobrain,” not “Dr. Biobrain”. It’s a common mistake, but I don’t want people to mistake me for a medical doctor. I only practice experimental medicine as a hobby, and even then only with vagrants and hobos. All in the name of science, of course.

    As for including my post in the carnvial, you’re welcome.

  2. Sorry to hear about your hard drive, and the pollen, and the plague of locusts, and the four horsemen of the apocalypse running through your backyard. Astonishing that the carnival came through with only minor damage. Admirable fortitude on your part.

    Thanks for including me in this fine and exclusive selection.
