August 2008


…but Hillary Clinton, in her DNC speech a few moments ago, absolutely just told her supporters in not-so-subtle terms to KEEP FIGHTING.  The whole Harriet Tubman “keep going” thing was not a message to the generic Democrat, or to the Obama crowd–that was an absolute, direct challenge to her supporters to keep fighting for her…against Obama!

There is no question her entire speech was about Hillary Clinton–not Obama.  There is no question that EVERYONE can see now who they SHOULD have nominated…Hillary Clinton, not Obama.  There’s no doubt she’s become a much better candidate, and her run was every bit as historic (if not moreso) than that of Baby Barry.  I promise you there will be a lot of Democrats who won’t sleep very well tonight unless they load themselves up with enough post-convention booze to knock them out, because Hillary knocked one out of the part tonight AND IT WASN’T FOR BARACK OBAMA!

I still can’t believe the pundits aren’t pointing all of this out though, especially that whole “keep going” thing.  Was nobody listening for the between-the-lines speechmaking???

 

Knowing what I do of people, particularly people in the part of the country where I live (where there are only five or six conservatives, and three of those are in hiding), you would think that nothng could surprise me.  Think again.

I’m eating Chinese today when conversation at the table opposite mine turns to Barack Obama.  The male and female couple are loud enough to be overheard and the fortyish woman says–I kid you not–that she’s voting for Barack Obama “because all the best actors and actresses think he’s the best”.

Yep, that would be the clincher for me too if, say, I WAS A COMPLETE BLOODY MORON.

This is Obama’s constituency.  This is Obama’s candidacy.  THIS is who we’re seriously considering electing President.  Makes you wonder if maybe it wouldn’t be better to take away some people’s right to vote, huh?  Perhaps we should have a certain baseline IQ requirement of…oh, I don’t know…two points higher than Al Gore.

Hey, that still leaves Rainman.  Speaking of Rainman, I think I have a job for him if Obama gets elected…

“Hey Rainman, wanna be the official Pilot for Air Force One?”

 

Oh, this one is definitely going to piss some people off.  So be it–you know what?  The bozos who keep putting guys like this up for President piss ME off…and anyone who would vote for either of these clowns pisses me off…so here’s a little payback atcha, boyeeee!

My third bumper sticker (I’m going to need a bigger truck soon!)…

 

Obama bin Biden

Obama bin Biden

 

The weekend talk on the boards I frequent isn’t about the upcoming Convention, or the selection of Joe “In Love With His Own Voice” Biden as the posterchild’s running mate…no, it’s comically centered around the seven houses thing.

I LOVE that John McCain has seven houses.  It tells me that he and his wife have worked hard to earn the American dream and are enjoying the spoils of those efforts.  I wish he had FIFTY SEVEN HOUSES…

You know–one in each state, if you use the Obama math to calculate it.

 

Here’s some food for thought…a basically good person is approached by someone and asked to carry some packages into a crowded mall.  The basically good person, having his heart in the right place, readily agrees.  As he breaches the doorway one of the packages explodes bringing the building down and killing hundreds.

Is the basically good person a terrorist?  Is he just as bad as the person who planned the attack or built the bomb?

Your knee-jerk reaction to this scenario will be to say “OF COURSE NOT!  HE WAS AN INNOCENT VICTIM!”

To this I vehemently DISAGREE, and you’ll learn why in a moment.

Switching gears a bit, let’s talk about patriotism.  I’ve been giving this some thought of late and I have come to the conclusion that I don’t believe that Barack Obama is intentionally unpatriotic.  I do most definitely think he has an agenda that includes doing whatever is necessary to achieve his goal (the Whitehouse), and I believe wholeheartedly that he would sell out his own mother and/or sign away his own soul to get there (which his choice of Joe Biden as a running mate CLEARLY demonstrates)…but I don’t believe he entered this fray with latent anti-American thoughts in mind. 

That said, he’s every bit as much a traitor to his country as someone who sells secrets to Russia, and I honestly believe that he’s exponentially more dangerous.

Barack Obama and the Unintentional Terrorist share certain commonalities that cannot be ignored.  The first is that having one’s heart in the right place basically counts for diddly.  It is our actions that affect the world around us, not our intentions.  It is the decisions we make moment to moment that determine what happens within our sphere of influence, not the happy horseshit that motivates those decisions.  One’s decisions must be tempered by much, much more than just how pure of heart we may be.  Whether or not Barack Obama intends evil for this country does not mitigate the simple fact that his presence in it’s leadership will necessarily permit, and more importantly create, forces that will absolutely serve to destroy our nation from within.  Does his seeming ignorance of this fact get him off the hook?  Will his obvious ineptitude remove him from blame when he almost single-handedly “brings down the building”?  Will he be any less responsible for our imminent collapse simply because he “thought he was doing the right thing”?  Absolutely not.  The only difference between Barack Obama and an outright traitor to the country is that at least the agenda of the traitor is pretty easy to discern and considerably easier to defend against.  Someone whose ability to destroy is hidden behind a “heart in the right place” is infinitely more dangerous and every bit as guilty as the intentional traitor.

But it’s more than that.  Like the Unintentional Terrorist, Barack Obama is even MORE guily than the anti-patriot because he simply should know better.  Mommy taught me a long time ago not to talk to strangers.  Five minutes in the airport taught me that I shouldn’t accept packages from people I don’t know.  9/11 taught me that there are those in this world who mean to do us harm and I must be perpetually vigilant against their nefarious aims and means, which include using innocent, good-hearted mules like myself to deliver their particular evil.  The Unintentional Terrorist failed the most basic responsibility that he has, which is using his experience and his wit to avert calamity.  Barack Obama is equally guilty of failing to use his noggin, and this incompetence–unlike the Unintentional Terrorist–threatens to bring down an entire nation.

I simply don’t care what Barack Obama believes.  I don’t care what he’s seen or heard in Jeremiah Wright’s church, or how well he tunes Nancy Pelosi out (or in).  My concern with the Unintentional Traitor is that he has demonstrated contempt for the very principles that created and have maintained this nation.  This is a conscious choice.  Whether it arises out of an inability to effectively draw correct conclusions when presented with clear and unquestionable evidence, or it is a byproduct of his single-minded political aspirations, or it is because he’s a closet weakling whose strings are (obviously) being pulled by much more seasoned and calculating deviants,  BARACK OBAMA IS A TRAITOR TO THIS NATION.  He’s a traitor because he’s weak of intellect, weak of will or weak of character.  No matter which weakness is responsible, the policies he will pursue are dangerous to the point of destruction for our nation.  The evidence that his ideas are wrong-headed exists all around him and throughout history–he’s simply ignoring or unaware of it, and for someone running for the highest office on the planet, that is simply unacceptable.

Barack Obama is anti-American.  He is a traitor by virtue of his ineptitude, and by the fact that he has put that ineptitude into a position where he may very well gain an office that is significantly above him, no matter where “his heart is”.

The question at this point is not whether the Unintentional Terrorist or the Unintentional Traitor are guilty–clearly they are.  What remains to be answered is whether we, the American people, will ourselves become complicit in the destruction of the greatest nation ever placed upon this Earth.  Any American who casts a vote for the Unintentional Traitor may as well be carrying mysterious packages into a crowded shopping mall.  Anyone with the power to prevent a tragedy such as an Obama presidency, but fails to do everything in his/her power to do so, is no less a traitor than every single person who’s sold this nation out since it’s founding.  The evidence is all around us, and it’s unmistakeable.  If we fail to draw the proper conclusions from it, or we ignore it’s warning, we…WE…will be ultimately responsible for our own annihilation.

 

Here’s the second bumper sticker I’ve designed for my truck.  I’ll be printing these up and distributing…someone needs to get these realities into the consciousness of the general American public!

 

BARACK OCOMMIE

BARACK OCOMMIE

 

There’s going to be a “stream of consciousness” feel to my first few weeks because there’s just so much to say.  There won’t be any flow to any of this, or any real organization, because I’m just going to post whatever comes to mind the minute it gets there so long as it comes while I’m sitting at the keyboard.

Most of it at this point is going to be oriented toward Barack Oboreme.  My current train of thought goes something like this:

How did this CHILD reach any kind of prominence?  I mean my God, I know we’re a nation of absolute idiots but come ON…I see this guy and the first thing that I hear in the back of my mind is “Today, Barack is brought to us by the letter Q”.  I keep expecting to see the muppets come out and start singing or something.  He walks around from behind the podium and I check to see if he’s wearing Gucci loafers or a set of Romper Stompers.  Then I hear some genius in the media start talking about what a wonderful orator he is…what?

Obama’s speechmaking is about as exciting as an announcement of a Peaches & Herb reunion tour.  He says nothing new, and while it’s true he delivers his worn-out rhetoric with teleprompter efficiency and a tone borrowed from dozens of more eloquent black men who came before him (even Jesse Jackson brings more passion to the stage, and he’s about as animated as a houseplant, articulate as a driver’s ed teacher and he speaks with what sounds like a mouthful of straw) the fact is that at some point the hands go up and he has to think and speak off the cuff.  When that portion of the proceedings inevitably comes, his acclaimed oratory suddenly disappears and his true self emerges, bringing to mind Foster Brooks on steroids.  Barack Obama is a great orator?  That’s like saying Gloria Steinem is every man’s dream wife.

But people are buying it.  I swear to you the Democrats could just as easily have put a poster-child out there–no, I mean a REAL POSTER CHILD, some kid who poses for a “vote for me because I’m not George Bush” wall hanging–and the average American idiot would still be eating it up.  Naturally the media is mostly to blame for this, but it truly sickens me to think that as a society fully half of the people around me at any one time are actually buying into this guy.  Have we gotten so stupid and lazy that we can be duped this easily?

Here’s the bumper sticker I created for my car.  One of many I’ll be sporting before it’s all said and done, I’m sure, but it’s the one that focuses my primary thought at the moment:

Elect a GROWN-UP for President '08

Elect a GROWN-UP for President

 

Yep, that about says it all at the moment.

I’ll say more soon though.
