Annika's Journal Enters The 21st Century

Annika's Journal enters the 21st Century by making use of a new technology found only on the internet. Yes. I'm talking about Twitter. Perhaps you've heard of it, as I did recently.


Today's Retweek of the Weet is as follows:

RT @annikagyrl Joe Wilson should have said "G D America!" because then Obama wouldn't have heard it.

I love that one. I wrote that one.

Thank you. Have a wonderful rest of the evening.

The Big Day, Or The Last Day

The enemy is at the gates. Now is the time. Live free or die.

This is America. We are Americans. May it always be so.

There is a chance. We can dodge this bullet. I can't do it alone. None of us can. But with faith in our holy Father, we can do it together.

There are dark days ahead no matter who wins after tomorrow. But pray, and pray hard, that we will not be led into a darkness greater than we dare imagine. When you wake up tomorrow, dedicate the day to this hope, and your vote will become your prayer.

And if we fail tomorrow, let us not fail in the greater fight to come.

Be ready.

Doesn't Anybody Know History?

What the fuck is this shit?!

A Civilian National Security Force?! Let me repeat my question. Does anybody know fucking History?! At all? If so, does the idea of a Civilian National Security Force scare the shit out of you? It should. Think about it. One party about to assume control of all three branches of government, then suddenly we need a "Civilian National Security Force."

Does that remind you of anything? Two letters maybe?


In somewhat related news, today I got some of these:


and did some of this.

A Canadian Discusses Anti-Americanism After Obama

They didn't like us before Bush, and they still won't like us after Obama. Sure, there will be a honeymoon period, just like with all presidents. But after Biden's international crisis hits, and Obama does that thing that Biden warns will cause their poll numbers to drop, we'll be back to the good ole days of the "great satan," (an epithet that was coined, lest we forget, during the Carter administration).

It's Hammer And Sickle Time In America


I'm on the point of winning for them the greatest foothold they will ever have in this country.

—Eleanor Iselin

Don't kid yourself. Did you ever wonder why he's so reluctant to detail exactly what he means by "change." It's because he means CHANGE in every sense of the word.

November 5th everything will change. And we have only ourselves to blame. We Republicans especially, for not making our case, even now. Because this election is about LIBERTY and when its long over we will miss that seven letter word that has meant so much to us for 232 years.

I intend to teach my children what LIBERTY was like when I was growing up. And I hope that someday they will know it again, as I did. Because the damage that Obama and his minions will do to this country will take a generation to undo, if we have the guts.

Wait Just A Damn Minute!


I'm sorry. Did I fuckin' miss something, or isn't this guy not even the nominee yet? Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the "moment" when we "change" the "world" into a liberal "paradise" -- with "peace," "healthcare" and free Slurpees for all -- doesn't that "moment" come after the "moment" when the dude actually gets elected president?

Finals Thought

Kobe's not Jordan? Maybe. I think a more correct statement is Odom's not Pippen. Look, the Lakers are a Phil Jackson team: a bunch of role players with one star but no big man. The Bulls were a Phil Jackson team with two stars and decent, not great, big men. Put Bynum in there, move Gasol to forward where he belongs, and then it's all on Odom. Next year there's a good chance we'll see the same two teams in the Finals. There's nothing wrong with Kobe's game, but the Laker's future depends on whether Odom decides to adopt a Pippen like work ethic or whether he remains content being the same old Odom. Because against these Celtics, one superstar ain't enough.

Paul Pierce? Call Him John Locke

Last night's game wasn't played in the Garden. It was played on the Island. That's the only way to explain how a guy can be wheeled off the court with a season ending injury, only to return a minute and forty-five seconds later miraculously healed. Not just healed, but better, stronger, faster, and more accurate from behind the arc.

Give me a freakin' break.

Sing It With Me

I need a stapler.
I need my hair done.
I need a Mother's Day gift.
I need to eat lunch.

I paid my bills.
I fucked around on the internet.
I recharacterized my Roth IRA contribution to a traditional IRA contribution.
I folded some clothes.

I got on a t-shirt.
I got on some jeans.
I got a scrunchie in my hair.
It's too hard to rhyme these things.

We're going to the mall.
We're going to the Post Office.
We're going swimming.
We're going to Pottery Barn.

You sent me a text message.
I sent you a text message.
You sent me a text message.
I sent you a text message.

I haven't decided what to wear on the plane.
I haven't decided what to do on Tuesday.
I haven't decided about the long term.
I haven't decided, okay?

It might be nice in Florida next week.
It might be a fun trip.
It might be a good time to quit smoking.
It might or might not rain.

They wait for a package.
They are not like me.
They talk a lot.
They don't have a clue.

I wish her good luck with her baby.
I wish him good luck with his diet.
I wish you good luck with whatever your doing.
I wish I were comfortably rich.

You are driving to Palm Springs.
You are wearing my favorite sweater.
You were upset about something or other.
You aren't anymore.

My hair is still wet.
My car looks brand new.
My tummy is growling.
My eyes are blue.

I will eat lunch.
I will find a perfect Mother's Day gift.
I will get my hair done next week.
I will buy a stapler.

Hillary Post Mortem

For about the thirteenth time this season, Hillary's obituary is being written by the mainstream media. It might be for good this time.

I remember way back when, the first time they said Hillary was through, I was a real happy camper. Bronco Bomber, I thought, would put a stake in the heart of baby boomer politics. That of course was before Wright, Ayers and Dohrn, Michelle, Rezko, etc.

Now I'm all: Don't give up, Hillary! You're not beaten yet!

I still hate Hillary. A second Clinton presidency would be more disastrous than the first because this time the Clintons will have the benefit of a rubber-stamping Democrat congress. Plus Hillary is way more liberal than Bill was, and as big a liar.

I liked Bronco Bomber for a time because I bought his bullshit. He sounded different, almost Kennedyesque, despite the fact that Obama's resume is laughable compared to JFK's when he became president. But still, compared to Hillary, I thought, better the devil you don't know than the devil you do know.

What's changed? I no longer trust Bronco Bomber. I think he's the Manchurian candidate. And even if Obama were what he wants us to believe he is, I can't trust that his administration wouldn't be filled with anti-American commies like the type of people he seems to want to hang aroung with. If Obama became president, thousands of Ayerses and Wrights would flock to Washington D.C. for low level patronage jobs where they can destroy this country in obscurity. Remember Jamie Gorelick? Think Jamie Gorelick on steroids, but an entire fifth column of them.

On the other hand, it's possible Bronco Bomber might be easier to beat than Hillary. I don't think he knows how to take a punch. What worries me is that McCain won't have the guts to go after him. Bomber needs to be swift-boated, but you can bet any time he is criticized his campaign will cry racism. We saw with the NCGOP ad controversy, that McCain doesn't have the stomach for that fight. Thank goodness there are surrogates enough on our side who will do McCain's job for him.

The best of all possible outcomes (and you already knew this) would have been for Hillary to stay in the race all the way to the convention and somehow survive the first ballot, then twist arms until she got a back-room deal for the nomination. Then it's goodbye black vote and goodbye youth vote.* The Democratic big-wigs can't allow that to happen, so it looks like their plan is to call the contest early and hope the Clintons take the hint. That's why every MSM story you see today says that the race is over.

It may or may not be over. I hope Hillary stays in it to the bitter end, even if she doesn't beat Obama. But the bottom line is this: if the Democrats want to be stupid enough to nominate Bronco Bomber, more power to 'em. I like our chances.

* As if the Democrats have ever been able to count on the so-called "youth vote," otherwise known as the biggest fucking myth in American politics.

Useless AI Blogging

Worst Idol season ever.

I half expected Paula to say she was dodging sniper fire on the way to the Kodak tonight.

DC is solid again, but he'll always be Daughtry lite.

Jason should have gone home last week, and failed to take advantage of his second chance. He needs to go home.

Brooke went 1 and 1. Second song was nice; first was ill advised.

DA had an off week. Utterly unconvincing on both songs.

Someone please take up a collection to buy Syesha some shoes.

Wright - Moyer Love Fest

I forced myself to watch the Wright-Moyer1 love fest last night on PBS. Here's the transcript. Knowing Moyer, and his talent for partisan obfuscation, I didn't expect much. My expectations were not exceeded.

If the purpose of this interview was to rehabilitate Pastor Wright for those whose only knowledge of him was based on "snippets" of his sermons "run in an endless loop," the interview failed.

Here's the Moyer-Wright argument, in a nutshell:

1. Pastor Wright is a good guy, and really smart.2

2. The "snippets" were taken out of context.

3. And besides, you wouldn't understand them anyway.3

When I first heard the audio of Pastor Wright's vitriolic sermons, the first thing I thought was "this guy shouts like a fascist." If you've ever heard recordings of Hitler or Mussolini at the crescendo of an oration, the tone is eerily similar.

I've since heard the context, and not only do I understand what he was trying to say, it's no different in context than it is out of context. The man is full of hate. Just because you can construct an elaborate argument to justify your hatred doesn't mean you don't hate.

I don't mean to equate Pastor Wright with Hitler or Mussolini, but their methods of proselytization are similar. It boils down to this: Out there you're a victim; in here you're safe because I will tell you the truth.

Many people naturally want to hear that they're victims, because it explains life's inherent unfairness in a way that relieves them of any responsibility. And many people are naturally attracted to conspiracy theories out of ego-gratification. I know the "truth" -- you believe the "lies." Therefore I'm smart and you're a fool. That's all it is.

So what if Wright's ministry did good work in the community? So does my church, and without all the race-baiting hate speech. It is possible to preach the gospel without dividing people into us and them. But perhaps not as profitable.

One passage from the interview stood out for its absurdity.

[A]fter every revolution, the winners of that revolution write down what the revolution was about so that their children can learn it, whether it's true or not. They don't learn anything at all about the Arawak, they don't learn anything at all about the Seminole, the Cheek-Trail of Tears, the Cherokee. They don't learn anything. No, they don't learn that. What they learn is 1776, Crispus Attucks was the one black guy in there. Fight against the British, the- terrible. "We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal while we're holding slaves." No, keep that part out. They learn that. And they cling to that. And when you start trying to show them you only got a piece of the story, and lemme show you the rest of the story, you run into vitriolic hatred because you're desecrating our myth. You're desecrating what we hold sacred. And when you're holding sacred is a miseducational system that has not taught you the truth.
I don't know what schools Pastor Wright went to, but I was taught all that stuff in every single history class I ever had. In a good number of law school classes too. Pastor Wright, if he knew what he was talking about, should have no problem with the history curriculum of today's students.4 In that sense, Obama was right when he said that Wright's profound mistake was thinking that America hadn't changed. We have changed, and we can do even better.

In his Farewell Address, Ronald Reagan addressed the same question, with a very different take, and one that I think is superior and unifying in contrast to Wright's divisiveness.

But now, we're about to enter the nineties, and some things have changed. Younger parents aren't sure that an unambivalent appreciation of America is the right thing to teach modern children. And as for those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style. Our spirit is back, but we haven't reinstitutionalized it. We've got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom -- freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It's fragile; it needs protection.

. . .

And let me offer lesson number one about America: All great change in America begins at the dinner table. So, tomorrow night in the kitchen I hope the talking begins. And children, if your parents haven't been teaching you what it means to be an American, let 'em know and nail 'em on it. That would be a very American thing to do


1. I know there's supposed to be an "s." I omit the "s" because that's what LBJ did.

2. See, he uses the word "hermeneutic" in a sentence to show how smart he is. Even Bill Moyer doesn't know that word, which proves how smart the Pastor really is.

3. Wright said, "The persons who have heard the entire sermon understand the communication perfectly." Again, he divides people into us and them. If you were there, you understand and presumably agree. If you disagree, well, you weren't there so you couldn't possibly understand and you're opinion has no value. Interestingly, Obama would have it both ways. He agreed, but only with the stuff he heard when he was there. He disagreed, but only with the stuff he didn't hear because he wasn't there.

4. A recent poll of 2000 High school students asked them to name the top ten "most famous Americans." The top three were: Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman. Oprah Winfrey came in 7th. And check this out, "when the researchers polled 2,000 adults in a different survey, their lists were nearly identical."
