Four years ago today, the day the Legal Insurrection snowball started rolling down hill, the day after which there was no turning back, the day which meant I never would be a Czar in Obama’s America, the day on which I posted Obama is “Door  No. 2″:

Obama may be a post-racial healer, or he may be someone who carefully uses race and false accusations of racism to advance his political career. Obama may not have known about Jeremiah Wright’s political race-baiting, or he may have known but not cared. Obama may be someone who views this country as inherently good, or he may secretly share the views of his political enabler, William Ayers, that this country is inherently bad. We may know Obama better than Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers know Obama, or we may not know Obama at all.

The story has been told of why it started, and why it continued:

This is the fight of our lives for the benefit not of ourselves, but of future generations. Will our children and our children’s children have the freedom to make their own way in life, or will we relegate them to being beggars at the altar of government handouts?

Will we be honored as the generation which finally said no to the welfare state and thereby saved the best economic and political system on earth, or will we be cursed by our descendants as the generation which gave it all away?

The rest is history:  Over 7100 posts, 138,000 comments, 7200 registered users, 115 banned users, 19 million unique visits, 25 million page views, a new blog format, several contributing Authors here and at College Insurrection, and many new blog friends to whom I am grateful for their support and linkage.

Special thanks to my wife, who puts up with this.

And to the readers and commenters, the best bunch of prufreaders, nitpickers, critics and … supporters in these United States of America.
