Scarier and scarier

The Obamamessiah is really starting to scare the crap out of me.

At a recent pep rally, the Obamamessiah stated:

We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK....
So, what's that mean to you and me?? Well, to me it says that the nanny state is going to hit full force in an Obama Presidency. Drive too big of a car - I'd bet there will be extra taxes in it for you for wasting energy. Spend too much on that steak dinner at the grocery store? There will be a penalty on it in the form of a consumption tax perhaps, or even a limit to how much you can buy at the store or restaraunt. And we've all heard stories about how the state of California is working on technology that will allow the state to see what your thermostat is set on and adjust it from a central control if you get too cool or too hot. In other words, a government that will control nearly every aspect of your life.

I'm still not at all thrilled over the prospect of a McLame presidency. But I'm beginning to think that just about anything is going to be better than Obama's vision of a nanny state...
