People are bleeding in the name of freedom.







Meanwhile, Tony Hawk skateboarded in the White House, so really, who cares.

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?

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?

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.

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."

I Got A Question

Bronco Bomber says he didn't hear Pastor Wright's controversial sermon on the Sunday after 9/11. How is it that the Senator wasn't in Church on the Sunday after 9/11? Everybody was in church on the Sunday after 9/11! Or maybe he skipped church that day as some sort of statement, like not wearing the flag pin. Maybe he thought going to church had, after 9/11, suddenly become a substitute for true worship, and so he decided he wasn't gonna do that no more. Or maybe it was around that time that he felt his family's economic situation had improved to the point that he didn't need to "cling" to religion on that particular Sunday like 99% of the rest of America (including, by the way, the couple hundred America haters in Wright's congregation who cheered during his diatribe).

California Voters Guide

Here are my recommendations for any of you California voters who have not yet gone to the polls.

For president:
Republicans - Mitt Romney.
Democrats - Barak Obama.

Proposition 91: Gas tax earmarks. Vote YES. Requires that gas taxes go to pay only for trasportation stuff, instead of into the general fund. Anything that makes it harder for the spendthrifts in Sacramento to throw money away, I'm in favor of.

Proposition 92: Community college funding mandate. Vote NO. This idiocy requires community colleges to spend more while reducing fees. Obviously its authors failed math when they went to college.

Proposition 93: Term limit reform. A tough call, but vote YES because it will ultimately reduce the term limit from 14 to 12 years, while allowing lawmakers to stay in one house instead of having to switch halfway through their terms.

Proposition 94 to 97: Vote NO on the Indian gaming initiatives. Don't turn California into another Nevada. California lawmakers need to learn how to run a state without relying on sin taxes to fund their never-ending spending spree.

Post New Hampshire General Commentary Post #3

Okay so I'm resurfacing because I just can't keep silent on what happened tonight.

Keep in mind that I don't even want Obama to win, but I hate Hillary. I didn't realize that I hated her until tonight. Before I just disliked her and didn't want her to be president. Now I want to stick a knitting needle in her eye.

(If I were to stick a knitting needle in her eye, here's what I think it would sound like: "pffft..." "AAAAAHHHH!!! AAAAAHHHH!!! AAAAAHHHH!!! AAAAAHHHH!!! AAAAAHHHH!!!" etc.)

Anyways. Tell me this. Nobody—but nobody—predicted anything less than a five point Obama victory as late as yesterday. I'm talkin' Zogby, Rassmussen, CNN, CBS, etc. I know pre-election polls are often wrong, but the exit polling today also predicted a solid Obama victory.

Add to that, Clinton herself acted like a defeated woman for the past few days. She knew she was going to lose New Hampshire, because she was going to lose! Her crocodile tears, her meltdown at Saturday's debate, and Bill's tirade against the vast media conspiracy, all show a campaign that saw the writing on the wall.

Plus, I don't know anybody that thought Clinton's behavior since Iowa has helped her in any way. Everybody I talked to thought she was hurting herself badly every time she opened her mouth.

And all the coverage of the campaigning in NH since Thursday was all about how Clinton wasn't drawing crowds and Obama rallies were huge and energized.

All that stuff tells me that she cheated. Come on, it's the fucking CLINTONS, for pete's sake. They fucking cheated and you know it. These people don't care how they win; lying, cheating and stealing mean nothing to them. They're as Macchiavelian as anyone in modern politics. What did Bill say when Ken Starr had him by the balls? We'll just have to win then.

The Clinton machine was in a desperate spot today. They knew they had to win, but they also knew they couldn't turn things around that quickly. Electorates don't change their minds that fast. The only way they could do it was to cheat. But we'll sooner find out how Hillary made all that money in cattle futures than find out how she cheated on this election. I guarantee nobody will look into it. The media loves a horse race and they got one now.

Historians will write about how President Hillary saved herself with the spectacular New Hampshire comeback. But I'm telling you, this was the 2008 version of Daley delivering Chicago or Joe Kennedy buying West Virginia. Its the only possible explanation and it sucks.

Not that I want Obama to win. I admire him greatly, sure, but I disagree with him on almost every issue. I just want him to win the nomination. I used to think he couldn't win it, but now I think he can. I've never seen a guy generate that much passion and excitement as a politician. I want him to win because it will kill the baby boomer sixties counter-culture stranglehold on the Democratic party, hopefully for good. Then I want to see the Republicans nominate a guy who can beat him. Against Obama, at least it would be a fair fight.

Post-Speech Update

Bravo, Mitt Romney. I've been a critic and a skeptic of his candidacy, but that was really well done. It looked like he got choked up at the end, but that's okay, so did I. I'm a sucker for appeals to our country's great religious heritage.
