The DNC........ /yawn

I have been catching the DNC and so far I am unimpressed. It has been a tear fest so far with no substance. I just watched Biden's speech and it was so-so but I am waiting for some clear and unclouded plans for the United States of America over the next 4 years.

Obama talks a smooth line but I don't know what the hell he is really saying most of the time. He tows the party line on a lot of issues but I think he is more liberal than Ted Kennedy when you read about his voting history and what little he does stand for.

Overall, Obama is for higher taxes- inheritance tax, gas tax, income tax, et al. That is what Democrats do- they raise taxes to pay for the programs to help people who cannot help themselves (or more to the point, too lazy to help themselves) by taking money from people who bust their ass to make some money. If you think things are economically bad for you now then it won't get better with Barrak in the White House.

I had a discussion with a hard core liberal at work the other day who is also voting for Barrak no matter what. I think if pictures of Obama came out showing him in a circle jerk with Bin Laden, Arafat, Amadhnejad (sp), and Kim Jong Il, this guy would still vote for him. I asked this guy at work why he was going to vote for Obama and got the typical Obama supporter reply- "He is for change."

I asked him what exactly Obama is going to change and I was told, "Everything. He will bring the country together." When I then asked how he was going to do that this supporter said, and I am not paraphrasing one iota, "Because he's black."

Because he's black? That's going to bring us all together, that's going to solve the gas crisis, the economic slump, the housing market crash, and our foreign reputation? Are you fucking kidding me?

This guy made the repeated point that our foreign relations are in the toilet and that it is Bush's fault. In fact, this guy couldn't defend Obama's position as much as he could just say that Bush sucks. So I think this speaks volumes about him and a lot of Obama supporters: they don't know what he really stands for, how he is going to fix our problems or bring America together. All they know is Bush sucks and they relate McCain to the perpetuation of the Bush cadre if McCain is elected. The Democrats know that they will not take the White House without a close race. Why else would they be making a big stink about how many houses McCain owns or that he pushing senility? They got nothing.

But more important to me, other than what Obama stand for politically, because he and McCain stand together on a lot of issues, is Obama's character. I don't trust him just like I don't trust the Clintons. A man who refuses to put his hand over his heart and recite the Pledge of Allegiance should not be running the most powerful country on this little blue planet. Peroid. I see Obama as an elitist jackass, much like how I view John Kerry. Obama hasn't impressed me much with his patriotism and I think that he will weaken our country's safety and security measure just like Clinton did in his 2 terms as president.

We live in a much harsher world than we did just 10 years ago. Muslim extremists do not like Americans, although they do like our movies and our clothes (Allah must not have a hard on for infidel fashion) and they will continue to kill non-Muslims no matter what the skin color of our next president. I don't think Obama understands the severity of just how important our foreign policy just doesn't matter to terrorists or the leaders of countries who hide, train, or support them.

I foresee more press conferences trying to tell us what Obama really meant to say if he is elected and even more ridiculous catch phrases than "That depends on what your definition of 'is' is."

wtf, over....

Bernie Mac died at age 50 the other day, Isaac Hayes died today at 65. I guess show business can be rough.

Only the good die young.
- Billy Joel

I didn't listen to Bernie Mac's stand up except for maybe a few minutes as I was channel surfing. He was playing in Vegas a few weeks ago when I went for the weekend with my wife.

I have posted about Isaac Hayes when he decided to leave South Park after the creators dogged the stupidity that is Scientology. Hayes didn't seem to have a problem when Matt Stone and Trey Parker made fun of all the other world religions. I didn't read the story about Hayes but I can only guess he didn't die by falling off a suspended bridge while on fire, only to fall off and become impaled on a pointy rock, and then mauled apart by a hungry bear and mountain lion- then ending in a violent release of his bowels. Cosmically ironic if it did though.

On top of these weekend deaths, visitors to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing have been murdered. The father of a 2004 Olympiad was stabbed to death and his wife critically injured by a Chinese man. It is a shame that this happened but I have to wonder why the people of the world would expect otherwise.

China is a communist country and ruled by a dictator. True, China is gaining a strong economic front, but that shouldn't fool people into thinking everything is hunky dory over there. China has ensured that politics will get a gold medal and freedom of speech will finish dead last. 2006 Olympic Speedy skater Joey Cheek, had his visa revoked for speaking out against the mess that is Darfur. Way to promote that Olympic spirit, commies.

I was told that the opening ceremonies were incredible but I have no desire to watch the Olympics. To give China the privilege of hosting the Olympics, a time for celebration of the human condition, is like giving Yasir Arafat the Nobel Peace Prize.

China and Arafat can both suck it.

Terrorists, Hollywood, braindead Dems and Muslim extremists

This is why that group of people piss me off:

The last seven times we Americans took up arms and sacrificed the blood of our youth, it was in the defense of Muslims (Bosnia , Kosovo, Gulf War l, Kuwait , etc.)

Muslim Nations demanded apologies from the US after the disgrace at Abu Ghraib but no such call for an apology came upon the extremists came after 9/11.

Muslim and Arab leaders didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, the murders and beheadings of Nick Berg and Daniel Pearl, etc.

Every time terrorists hide they find a convenient 'Holy Site.' Soldiers who follow them are rebuked by the Arab world, Muslims, and even Americans.

Terrorists do not receive the same rebuke for flying a jet into the World Trade Center that collapsed and severely damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - one of our Holy Sites.

All of the murderers on 9/11 were Islamic Arabs. I'm all for racial profiling and get extremely angry at the system when my wife and 2 small children are pulled out of line for screening. When was the last time a white woman, a toddler, and an infant were engaged in terrorist activity?

Most Arabs and Muslims have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships and their leaders squander their wealth. Hundreds of years have shown a consistent declination in quality of life in every country Arabs or Muslims control. There is not a Middle Class.

Those same governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools, mosques, and government-controlled media.

Some Arab governments pay the families of homicide bombers upon their death those same bombers are brainwashed thinking they will receive 72 virgins in 'paradise.'

The U. S. A. has to step in and be the biggest financial supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame the USA for all their problems.

The United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of the 'food for oil' money so they could get rich while the common folk suffered.

The homicide bombers think pregnant women, babies, children, the elderly and other noncombatant civilians are legitimate targets.

Our troops die to free more Arabs from the gang rape rooms and the filling of mass graves of dissidents of their own making.

Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other group. Period.

Foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state. Leaving Iraq would give free reign to terrorists to plot against us in one more Middle Eastern region.

Yasser Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and high-jacked the Palestinian 'cause.' He has been responsible for the murders of hundreds of Israeli people; he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994.

No other Arab country will take in or offer more than a token amount of financial help to those same Palestinians. Somehow, it is Israel's fault, the country that occupies less than 1% of Arab lands, that the Arab countries are in the mess they are in.

Voters on the liberal left don't understand the frightening changes that are taking place in the Muslim world (take France's growing Muslim population for example) and what these changes will do to this world in which we live.

The Democratic Party has been high-jacked by Socialists and Communists right under the very noses of those who take pride in calling themselves democrats.

Our own left wing, our media, and our own brainwashed liberal masses do not understand any of this (from the misleading vocal elements of our society like radical liberal professors, CNN and the NY TIMES).

Actors should not abuse their power and spew their political views on camera, especially when it is used to further their own political agenda.

Deep down inside, when most Americans saw the Abu Ghraib incident reported in the news, we were like - so what? We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners. Sure, it was wrong and it dramatically hurts our cause, but until captured we were trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed to wring our hands because a few were humiliated?

We hang out our dirty laundry for the entire world to see. We move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so much. We don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are now demanding an apology.

“Patriots” like Robert Redford demand an apology from the leaders of our country for going to war in Iraq, but thinks it is acceptable to show films of children portraying date rape victims or films showing bestiality in his Sundance Film Festival.

Cindy Sheehan mourns and honors the death of her son who was killed in Iraq by going on a mission to destroy the fabric of our patriotism by rubbing elbows with some of the most evil men in the world to further her twisted cause.

Our compassion for terrorists and Muslim extremists is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujahans.

But some Americans pity the terrorists as misunderstood, as just trying to fight the mean old hegemonies of the United States. Or better yet, that we are killing brainwashed terrorists and extremist to further our oil reserves. Or even better yet, that we actually started this whole mess.

Barack Hussein Obama may be elected president of the United States when he doesn't have a clue on how to be a strong Commander-in-chief in a world filled with Muslim extremists who will do whatever it needs to do to destroy the lives of civilized people while killing innocent men, women and children in order to bring a change that is beneficial to all Islamic terrorists worldwide.

Muslim extremists do not fear out court systems as much as we fear their beheadings. Democrats and Muslim sympathizers do not understand that these extremists cannot be reasoned with, cannot be bargained with. Our talks of negotiation are but a sign of our weakness and further the homicide bombings, the targeting of American troops, and the murdering of women and children in mosques, funerals, and marketplaces around the world.

People gasp with horror when watching a video of a disturbed soldier throwing a puppy off of a cliff. They add that to the list of reasons why we have to leave, then they complain that their lawn isn't getting enough water.

This next election will be the most important decision any American can make for it will determine the direction our country will go for the next decade. Will our country continue to be an open door to illegal aliens and terrorists? Will our country continue to ignore the growing threat of radical Islam?

Choose wisely.

Preach it brutha...

The article below was sent out on the Internet as written by syndicated columnist, Thomas Sowell, in a nationally syndicated column titled 'Random Thoughts'. Altough Sowell frequently writes for, he did not write this piece- someone erroneously attached his name to it for street cred I suppose. regardless, it is a funny piece that not only further begs non support for Obama, but gives a little glimpse into why we should have "old Man" Mccain and "Crazy Joe" Liebermann as our White House winners.

The Endorsement
Senator John McCain could never convince me to vote for him. Only Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama can cause me to vote for McCain.

After long and serious thought, I have decided to endorse Senator John McCain for President.

I have always voted for the person and have not voted for anyone because some political party was telling me who I should vote for.

We all know the choices by now and, that said, I do believe that the process of selecting a chief executive is deeply flawed. The words 'money' and 'special interests' come to mind, among many others.

Here's the way I see it:

Barack Obama, you are a fine public speaker. You are also an extremely liberal Senator from the State of Illinois, which has a long and rich history of political corruption of the first magnitude. You are indeed a child of that system.

You have finally insulted my intelligence far beyond my capacity to tolerate your insults. It has nothing at all to do with your skin color. As a matter of fact, it would be so COOL to finally have an African-American for President. What a great statement that would be to the entire world that we are indeed the greatest country on earth!

But, unfortunately, General Colin Powell is not running, and YOU are NOT the man for this job !

Barack baby, you want me to believe that you have never heard the sermons of your own pastor, the Right Reverend 'God Damn America' Jeremiah Wright. It is a matter of record that this has been your church for over 20 years. It is a matter of record that you were married there by this very pastor, and that your children were baptized there.

The good Reverend saw fit to visit Khadafy in Libya with you and to give a lifetime achievement award to Louis Farrakhan, of all people.

We have all now seen excerpts of his sermons all over the airwaves by now. And you have publicly stated that this man IS your 'spiritual mentor.'

BUT, your pastor is NOT the reason I am NOT voting for you. His words were disturbing enough, but it is your own HUGE church congregation, seen jumping, hooting and howling to his words in the background that disturb me the most. And please don't tell me you attended church there and never once heard a 'discouraging word' in the 20 years you attended there. Don't tell me, that in addition to the good reverend, that you are now not having anything to do with all those other people seen hooting and howling out in the audience in the background of his fiery tirades. Even Oprah Winfrey got disgusted and walked out on your campaign. I am no Oprah fan, but still she did the right thing.

Now you look me in the eye and ask me to believe that you never heard such language in all the years you attended there! This is like me telling you that I attended dozens of Klan rallies and never once heard the 'N' word. Yep. And Bill Clinton 'did not inhale'.

Yes, Mr. Obama, we all have friends who have said stupid things that embarrassed us, but NOW you have asked me to believe something that is so incredibly stupid that you are telling me that I am just stupid enough to believe you. THAT is the main reason that I will never vote for you.

I am deeply sorry, that in a country teeming with enormously talented African Americans who would make a good President, that the political system has chosen YOU. You are a pathetic and plastic excuse for an American, who will not even salute the Flag during the Pledge of Allegiance. God forbid you ever get near the Oval Office.

Which leaves us with Senator John McCain.

John, you are a flawed man. You are a bit old, a bit looney, and you have a notoriously bad temper. This perfectly qualifies you, in my humble opinion, to lead us for the next eight years. I WANT your trembling hand on the nuclear button.

Think about it.

We have Kim Jong IL, Chavez and Ahmadenijad all running around like lunatics, threatening America and threatening to plunge the world into nuclear Armageddon. We have Putin and the Chinese blustering and rattling their sabers at us. I want John McCain in the Oval Office and I want him to be really ticked off at all these other nut jobs around the planet.

John, once you are elected, I want you to go into the Oval Office and throw one of your perfect FITS. Jump up and down and throw something through a plate glass window. Rip the drapes down and foam at the mouth a bit. And I want the whole thing on camera so that Ahmadinejad can see it. I want ALL of these 'world leaders' to lay awake at night and to break out in a cold sweat every time they think of messing with the United States of America.

I want the nuclear button sitting right next to the alarm clock on your night stand. I want pictures of this to be sent to Iran, Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, and those other dopes in the sheets, the Saudis.

On the domestic front, poor John did try and reach across the aisle to the opposition in a desperate effort to compromise and to get the Congress to do something. You may not agree with his efforts, but at least he TRIED. For all his efforts, all he got handed to him was his head in a basket. The liberals are ticked at him and the conservatives are ticked at him. Just my kinda guy.

I predict that John will select Senator Joe Lieberman as his running mate. Good choice. I want a Jew whose memory of the Holocaust is still fresh in his mind and who is royally ticked off at all of these towel-headed morons in the Middle East to be the next in line if something should happen to John. Shalom, Vice President Joe. One heartbeat from the Oval Office.

Finally. John McCain knows on a most personal level what it is to suffer horrible torture for years and to see others die, right in front of you, for their love of America. When you ask him about it, he will tell you that what he did was 'nothing special. ' Even more incredibly, he states that ANY American who truly loves his country would do exactly the same as he did in that situation. You and I will have a hard time bel ievi ng that, but the real point is that John McCain believes that about the 'average American,' and that, dear friends and neighbors, is why I will cast my one poor ballot for on election day for John McCain -- warts and all.'
