President Biden gave lip service to “unity” in his inaugural address, yet in his first day begins to roll back Trumps moves that helped the economy. He also says nothing about the House impeachment and coming Senate trial…to try and throw someone out of office who IS ALREADY OUT OF OFFICE! But hey, apparently this is what the low information voters wanted (with the help of some fraud), now they will get what they asked for…and I will sit back and laugh/cringe.
Passion: Music from The Last Temptation of Christ by Peter Gabriel might just be the best 1hr 7min of music to ever grace my ears. The movie it accompanied was ostracized in some circles for it’s depiction of Christ. Funny thing, at the time I saw the movie I was an atheist, and I remember telling someone if I turned to Christianity, that movie would be a contributing factor. The naysayers didn’t see what I saw. I did drop the atheist mantle, but that’s another contributing factor. The reason for the season is far deeper than inanimate objects under a tree.
New tag line for people wanting out of the Middle East…isolationists. See if we leave ISIS regains strength and then we have to deal with refugees. WRONG! The Middle East has to deal with refugees…we do not let them in our country. We want to keep stacking our cities with Muslims and get more Ilhan Omars, have “no go zones” like in London and Paris?We will not change that region, they are what they are, always have been, and always will be. The Barbary Wars (Libya) was over 200 years ago. 40 years ago the Islamists overran our embassy in Tehran. 36 years ago Islamists blew up the Marine barracks in Beirut. 29 years ago was Desert Storm. Afghanistan war at 18 years is our longest war ever. How in the hell has our involvement in the Middle East and North Africa done us one bit of good.
The old line “no blood for oil”, well I don’t think it’s all about oil…but if there was no oil there would we even care what they do to each other? I already don’t care.
That said, they kill innocent Americans and they will feel a wrath from the sky like they’ve never felt. Who says we need troops in the ground…we can make life very very miserable for them just by bombing the hell out of them.
I really am sick of that place.
Thanks for reading
Has been quite a while since I’ve written anything here, but time to get back in the swing of things. More to come.
President Ocombata talked so much crap with his “red line” that for sure he would attack Syria, that a few days ago it seemed all but certain missiles would be flying by the weekend. But what happened? The French got squishy, the Brit parliament voted “no” to military involvement, and the American public is only about 15% in support. The Russians and Chinese were going to vote “no” in the UN Security Council, and he wanted to skip congress and act. So, now Odumbass is stuck, if he acts he looks bad for going it alone, if he doesn’t act he will look bad for being all talk no action. But BO came up with a brilliant (yet incredibly stupid) idea to say he wants to act, and we should act, but he will put it to congress for a vote. What does this do, it takes all of the heat off him, because congress will probably vote “no” and he will be able to blame them for letting the Syrian civil war rage on, including the use of chemical weapons.
BO had zero intention of getting involved in Syria, but he is incapable of keeping his sewer trap of a mouth shut, and as a result, painted himself in a corner.
What drives me crazy is the republicans giving him credit and commending him for sending it to congress. Sorry weak ass republicans, he didn’t do it because he thinks its the correct thing to do, he’s doing it for a purely self serving reason…to get out of the corner he put himself in. Quit giving the idiot in chief credit for nothing.
And for the record, we need to stay the hell out of Syria and every other Muslim country. Sorry folks, but I say let them kill each other to their hearts delight.
Thank You for Reading,
A person can have any belief or opinion they want, it’s a free country (for now anyway). Todd Akin doesn’t agree with abortion, fine, a lot of people don’t. But when a public official says something as ignorant as he did about how a womans body can defend against becoming pregnant during a “legitimate rape”, was completely idiotic and ill-informed. I’m not going to get into the technical aspects of what he said, but about him saying those words at all.
Akin has been in public office for 24 years, 12 in the Missouri House and 12 in the U.S. House, he has been in many campaigns and is not an amateur at interviews. When people in his position “misspeak” it’s one of two things, they are either an idiot, or they are voicing their true opinion/belief. To me, Akin was expressing both. His statement on abortion is what he believes, the fact that he said it two weeks after winning the republican primary for a run at the U.S. Senate currently held by Claire McCaskill, makes him a complete idiot. Now I’ve heard democrats took up republican ballots and voted for Akin because they figured he would be the easiest for Claire to beat…and it turns out they might be correct, but that’s another story.
Republicans in force came out against Akin, asked him to withdraw from the election, it wasn’t a few people, it was nearly everyone. What does Akin do, he sends out an apology and doubles down by staying in the race. He actually tried to blame the liberal media for the outrage, which means he is blind, because it was conservatives who were pissed. A week after his comments in that ill-fated interview, he is still being talked about, and now the liberal media are actually the ones keeping it alive, along with Obama surrogates, by trying to tie Paul Ryan to Akins beliefs. By staying in the race the guy proved to everyone he is self-serving and thinks his ambition to get to the senate is more important to what Missourians and the country think. He played right into the hands of the lefties who try to claim conservatives have a “war against women”. There is a good chance he just handed the election to the person holding the most vulnerable seat in the Senate, Claire, and if she wins, he will deservedly get the blame.
I did not vote for Akin in the primary, the fact that Mike Huckabee was a huge supporter of his, and endorsed him, was enough for me not to vote for him…I am a zero fan of Huckabee. But since he was the nominee, I was going to vote for him to help get rid of McCaskill, now I will not vote for him under any circumstance. I have held my nose and voted for people because “this election is so important”, but I will not do that anymore. I will not sell my soul down the river again. I sure as Hell won’t vote for Claire, I’ll write someone in, probably John Brunner (who I voted for in the primary), or I’ll check out the libertarian candidate.
Yeah, Todd Akin is sorry excuse for a representative and candidate. I’m glad I don’t live in his district.
I have come to the conclusion, well one that I concluded a long time ago, the main street media can’t be trusted. They go put of their way to paint conservatives in whatever bad light they can.
The most recent was this knucklehead from MSNBC, Toure’, who actually said Mott Romney was demonizing by “niggerazation” of Obama, simply because Romney said Obama’s campaign was angry. S.E. Cupp want going to let that crap pass, but the host kept trying to speak for Toure’ in defense. This guy is given a pass, Joe Biden is given a pass when he says “they are going to put y’all back in chains” to a crowd that was half black. BUT NO, Romney says Obama is angry and he called out for using racial coding.
Now when it comes to polling, and news surveys, I don’t trust any of them. They will do anything they can to make it look like BO is doing a good job. Funny part is, most of the commie loving left wingers probably think he is doing a good job. Liberals hate Fox News because they actually present both sides, and the interviewers or hosts (of news shows) don’t try to twist things in the favor of right wingers.
Look at the tax form nonsense, I could care less if he, or any presidential candidate shows tax returns…it is not a requirement. But the media keeps hammering away at it, because it deflects from the horrible job BO has done, and that he has nothing to run on but hate and anger…oops, that must mean I am attempting niggerazation of Obama. The part that really cracks me up, is the moron is half white! Maybe the right should try the honkyazation of Obama.
So, to say again, I don’t trust any of the media, or anything that comes out of their mouths. They live in a bubble of delusions.
I think Mitt Romney made a very wise choice for his running mate. In an online survey a month ago, it asked who you thought he should choose…I answered Paul Ryan.
The other options are excellent, and they all have their strong suits, but here is why it couldn’t be any of them.
Rob Portman – From Ohio, clearly would have pandering to a swing state.
Bob McDonnell – From Virginia, home of the first president. No need to have that come up.
Marco Rubio – From Florida, clearly would have pandering to another swing state, and Latinos.
Condoleezza Rice – Clearly pandering to women and blacks.
David Petraeus – Great general, but he took a job working for Obama.
Chris Christie – I think he is too much of a showboat.
Other primary candidates – pandering to another’s fan base.
So, the choice he made was the person I would have picked, Paul Ryan. PR has been in the House for 14 years, he knows how to represent people, he knows the economy, and he is a middle guy who can appeal to the older republicans, and the new generation of conservatives. Mitt Romney was able to keep this very secret, he used his brain in the vetting process, and he didn’t cave to the popular stars, or who the masses thought it should be. No, by picking Ryan, Romney doubled down on the economy, because in this case “It’s the economy, stupid (Obama)”, is a line that really tells it all.
This first big decision for Romney was a very well thought out good one, and to me it is a sign for future decisions should he become our next president…and boy do I hope he does.
I have never seen the big appeal to communism. So many radicals of the 1960s loved communism, I know a person who’s mother said she was a member of the communist party in the 60s. Let’s just look at some of the things to admire about life under communist rule.
China – Under Mao, around 45,000,000 Chinese people were killed.
Soviet Union – Under Stalin, around 20,000,000 Russians were killed, 800,000 were straight up executions and 1,700,000 died in gulags.
Cuba – 2,000,000 to 7,000,000 were killed.
Cambodia – Under Pol Pot, round 1,000,000 were killed.
Ethiopia – 500,000 killed.
Vietnam – 200,000 to 900,000 killed.
Romania – 60,000 to 300,000 killed.
East Germany – 80,000 to 100,000 were killed.
Bulgaria – 50,000 to 100,000 were killed.
The left loves guys like Che Guevara, a murderous criminal who helped Castro. Obama’s former White House communications director said Mao was one of her favorite philosophers.
But my favorite of all is this, Frank Marshall Davis. Who you may ask is Frank Marshall Davis? Well Frank Marshall Davis was Barack Obama’s mentor, and he is talked about, though not by full name, 22 times in Barack’s book, Dreams from My Father. Frank wasn’t just some guy, but Barack’s mentor. It also happens that Frank Marshall Davis was a card carrying member of the Communist Party USA, and an America hater. So, how do you ask, does a man who’s mother, father, and mentor were straight up communists, become president of the USA? It’s simple, he was not vetted, and the main street media gave him a complete pass…maybe the MSM are a bunch of communist lovers at heart.
Not saying what happened in those other countries, and others, 85,000,000 to 100,000,000 total deaths, will happen here, but communist takeovers have a rock solid history of mass murder. And people wonder why we have a 2nd amendment.
