But before I go into biology this is of course also rooted in religion and the bible. What bible you ask....well I use Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary which is available online on numerous websites. The online database provides definitions from the most comprehensive source of biblical data. Just a brief sample; Authorized, King James, Darby, Martin Luther 1545, Louis Segond, Riveduta Luzzi, Alexandrian, etc., and so on and...... So, the common thread from these is that this is a union between a man and a women, and there is also the element that procreation was something that was to only happen within the marriage.
Ok, now to biology...so while I'm not a bible thumper I like the existing definition because of a combination of the religious definition and how it relates to procreation of the human species. You can call me what you like, but I believe to be homosexual is to not be normal. I don't care if someone is born that way. I don't hate you if you are. You don't scare me. You don't have a better or less of a chance of being my friend. However, members of a species that either can't procreate, or won't, are not normal. So its a defect to the species. If defective members of species do procreate the question is do they increase the defect in the population. At some point either the species dies out or procreation becomes purely a survival exercise. And one could argue if it's the later it may also die since without the absolute bond of the family unit taking the offspring from birth to procreating the lineage is weakened. Ok, I'm waxing like we are talking about and ampeba but I believe this relates to human existence.
I could go on and on...digging a hole in some areas and a bridge in others...but just for a minute convert the idea of same sex relations to a non human species and what would it mean to the survival of that species.
Back to these legal action...I always love when someone uses completely illogical jumps to argue their case....take for example: "The assertion that marriage is inherently heterosexual can no longer be maintained now that there are a number of jurisdictions that allow same-sex couples to marry," Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, said in a packed courtroom. That's almost funny considering how many judgments by a jurisdiction right here in my backyard, the 9th Circuit Federal Appeals Court, which is the most reversed court in the nation. Ms. Minter also thinks her argument was strengthened by mentioning that guy marriage is legal in Massachusetts, Canada, Belgium and South Africa. Oh, gee...enough said!
It's interesting that the plaintiffs admit that same sex unions are getting the same rights (for the most part) as those of a married couple...but they want the label as well! WHY? You might ask...because they want to slowly but surely be considered normal and not a defect. They don't use these words but that's the end goal.

"If [our son] had been killed, we would have been first informed by a visit - in dress blues - from a condolence team typically consisting of two Marines and one Navy Chaplain. We know many families who've received that knock on the door. No letter is required. No words are required. A simple peek thru the view hole in the door and the sight of dress blue blouses, white covers and white gloves tells you all you ever need to know. A letter of condolence from the SecDef is, honestly, not even worth opening. Families are much more interested in hearing from the men who served with their son and from their families. We share the constant knowledge and fear that it could be our door bell being rung. Sec. Rumsfeld doesn't know our son. He's a Lance Corporal. He directs a machine gun team. He is a vital link in the line that protects our way of life. He doesn't fight for his country, he doesn't fight for the SecDef, he doesn't even fight for his mom and dad. He fights for the guys on either side of him and for his team. He fights to secure his objective of the moment, which he may or may not understand or agree with. Sec Rumsfeld doesn't need to take time from his day to sign a form letter of condolence and he certainly doesn't need to take time to figure out what the LCpl was doing when he was killed or what kind of a man he was. His job is to make sure the LCpl didn't die in vain and that only as few LCpl's as possible will have to die to end this war in a successful manner.
Don't get me wrong, we would appreciate the condolence letter from the SecDef, as well as one from the White House and from our Senator and Representative, from the Mayor and Governor. But none would bring back our son. And they are all form letters, signatures be damned. A letter from his 1stSgt, from the men we know in his unit would be a treasure and a comfort.
I don't know what happens in other branches, or even other units. But in 2/4, I know the 1stSgt's personally contact the surviving family with letters, emails and phone calls of condolence.
By the way, we know families of fallen Marines who've been flown to sites where President Bush was speaking. He met with them privately after his event, never any press coverage, and the families have said that - after being given an agenda for their time with the President and being told that he's on a very tight schedule - Mr. Bush talked to every family member as long as they wanted to talk, never hurried anyone, cried with family, hugged everyone and they all felt like he had nothing else to do for the rest of the day but bring comfort to them. For that, George W. Bush has my eternal respect and gratitude. And there was NEVER one word of publicity surrounding any of these meetings with families. (I have pictures to dissuade doubters.)
Bottom line, we support Sec Rumsfeld. The people who are making a big deal about this have their heads up their collective a****. They need to have a serious priority check on what people in positions of responsibility should be doing with their time. They should also chat with some military families if they could figure out how to contact them."

I could find a family of any race that has a similar or more unfair sounding story. A couple both with english lit Phd's with 4 kids and low paying hourly jobs...gosh shouldn't a Phd guarantee a middle or upper middle class lifestyle? This is the problem....this is not a hand out country...you earn your way and the better choices you make the better off you will be. Until the black, and other minority groups, start thinking like Bill Cosby they will forever be stuck in a barely getting by state. Personal responsibility and knowing that your future is yours to make and not provided for you is the key to economic success...and the same values extend to family and social choices, and structure, that make for a happy and healthy home which is key for raising kids that will propagate the same success.

Chevy Chase is the latest to go off the deep end....although his celebrity and net worth these days is probably on the extreme low end of this affliction....maybe he thinks he is still a super star and wealthy so one delusion feeds the other. On Tuesday Chase gave an F bomb tirade about our president at an awards ceremony staged by People for the American Way. Apparently many in attendance were taken aback by this and thought it inappropriate. That's interesting since the "People for the American Way" should really be called "People for changing the American Way to Something Not American" You only need to know that during the event Susan Sarandon and Alec Baldwin were given Defender of Democracy awards. Ah, are you people smoking crack? Anyway a way funny parody interview with Chevy Chase inspired by his very intellectual tirade.
These idiots in SF think this will make SF safer...The reality is it will attract criminals to SF. It's a well know fact in criminology that criminals are mortified of robbing a home or person who they think could be armed. Yes there are the crazies who have no regard for danger, but that's not the norm. SF has made it easy to be gay in their city so guess what the gay population is like? SF has made it easy to be homeless, pan handle and be a street bum so guess what that population is like there? And now they will advertise that every law abiding citizen who lives in the city limits will turn in and their guns. With no fear for criminals and no protection for the homeowner guess what population will increase in SF?

So why now? Because we have so many F'ing idiot politically correct liberal morons who are willing to throw American traditions out the window while they will embrace traditions not originating here. You will note that every time we have a story like this the F'ing idiot will say to the reporter they consider themselves a patriot....ya well you're not...usually when you meet someone who tells you they're a good golfer you can be sure they can't break 100....same for leftists who feel they need to say they're patriots!

The Christmas season brings out an example of what I'm sure many blacks consider a celebration of their culture, but Kwanzza and the "black nativity" are shams. A puff piece in the SFGate misses the sad separatist attitude of those in the story (and for those of you who deplore that I use the word "black", note it's use in the SFGate story). Rewriting history to change skin color isn't celebrating diversity....it promotes it. Children, I believe, are born color blind...their parents and environment form their colored view of the world. Black children don't have an identity problem because they see a white Santa or Jesus.
As for Kwanzza....it's amazing that so many blacks embrace this as their holiday (and reject others) especially considering its origin. I found an interesting website of black writers and artists with a Less Than Complimentary View of Kwanzza and its inventor!

But besides a conservative message that resonates with better than half the country diminishing the power of the old guard media elites was the impact of the Internet. The blogsphere plays a huge role for sure...but the ability to research a topic and find endless information on even the most obscure topics in seconds was huge. Everyone with a connection to the web can do their own fact checking of a story they hear on the news. The result? You look up the facts yourself...often finding not just both sides but in many cases a source with no axe to grind and little to no bias....and as you compare the real story to big media's version you realize just how misleading and biased they are.
Call it want you want Billy, but your glory days are over, good riddance.
This topic comes to mind because of two recent stories, first about liberal turncoat (god love him) Zell Miller who upon retiring was going to move to his home town of Young Harris, Georgia where he also had previously taught at the local college. Miller apparently had a teaching position waiting for him there but he declined it after a history prof there (whose wife is academic dean) wrote him a vitriolic letter which then got published in local papers. The duplicity displayed by so many academics is amazing. Diversity of thought and debate is hardly alive and well at most of our educational institutions.
A similar situation at Harvard has occurred with another Bush supporter. Thank god most of the staff at Harvard says the attitude towards new Prof Jack Goldsmith (former Assistant Attorney General) is wrong. But some of the faculty think a memo Goldsmith wrote arguing that CIA officials could transfer Iraqi detainees out of their native country for interrogation without violating the Geneva Convention in fact condoned torture (nice leap) and so he shouldn't be on the staff. I love how the anti-war (and for many anti-war-ever) left want kid glove treatment of captured enemy solders and then in a second breath will say more troops, guns and ammo are needed to fight. You guys are screwing up not having more fire power to kill the enemy, but if you happen to capture him don't scratch his head, don't even hurt his feelings. Ah yes duplicity once again.

So what's Court's concern? That "If you don't know how much he makes, you don't know what loopholes he's benefiting from, and you don't know what tax policies he adopts that are good for him or bad for him." What a f'ing moron. Unless Arnold gets the entire state legislature to either pass a tax break specifically for a) someone named Arnold Schwarzenegger or b) whomever is the governor of California any tax policies he pushes that benefit him will also benefit me! But people like this don't believe in trickle down. They think when we buy expensive things (cars, homes, planes, etc) or invest in start-ups, or a REIT, or a hedge fund, or play the options market, or buy income properties, blah, blah, blah....that somehow all of these transactions only see money going into the hands of other rich folks. Somehow all this spending, investing and putting money to work magically bypasses everyone at the lowest income levels entirely...pretty neat trick isn't it?
We have been surrounded by these nouveau communists for a long time....in fact I think most are indoctrinated by being in a profession that requires they join a union. The union mentality is akin to the Borg of Star Trek. There is no reason for individuality in philosophy or excelling at ones job since it isn't appreciated or rewarded. And the "entitlement" attitude also runs rampant in this group. Over 7 years ago I wrote a letter to a local paper in response to similar dribble they published...my response (Economic success is up to individuals) was also published and still appears on their site.

Thanks Pop for pointing this out to me.
"It's no joke. People with PEST were traumatized by the election. If you even mention religion, their faces turn blister-red as they shout at Bush."
"I'm scared," said one man. "Democracy is at stake and nobody is rising to protest this president."
"The media outlets, especially Rush Limbaugh and his ilk on talk radio, scare our patients to death," said Gordon, facilitator for the meetings. "More than anything else, people with PEST tremble physically."
Take for example this conspiracy theory evil Bush piece by Mark Morford in SFGate (ok, well maybe this being a San Fran based operation explains it..but).
I looked at those pics....sure some are nasty, sad and awful....ok, so I suppose you think if you could even walk around with a camera pre-Saddam removal you would find smiling faces, flowers, a thriving economy, excellent education and healthcare and so on? I suppose you think the military allowing basically anybody who wants to show up in Iraq (press, celebs, etc.) and all the embedded reporters is masterfully run is like the fake landing on the moon? This is the most open and information heavy military action ever in history.....if the military wanted to (and I would be for it) they could have never allowed a single press person into Iraq.
Give me a break...if you assembled pics of the murders, assaults and generally crime of one individual causing harm every day in the US and just for one day it would look just as bad. So what! To say that anybody thinks this war, or any war, is a well oil and executed operation is pretending there is someone out there to disagree with. The republican base and those who voted for Bush don't think that....they don't all even like that we did it...but we did, so first do it right and finish the job...second find the positives that can come from it.
My buddy Mike shot this article to me and found some quotes that Morford made in various interviews....I think this one shows his colors....the standard elite leftist mantra that to disagree with his views and have supported Bush you must be a knuckle dragging dolt homophobe racist.
A particularly pointed anti-Bush anti-war column will get me gobs of sneering hate mail, mostly from the delirious, hardcore psychopatriots at freerepublic.com or lucianne.com or andrewsullivan.com, et al, where they post chunks of my column in their discussion forums, along with my e-mail address, and encourage each other to flame me, usually in the cutest sort of monosyllabic, ragingly homophobic, horribly syntaxed, misspelled sort of way. Makes me proud to be an American. My girlfriend loves the anti-SF gay-bashing they aim my way, I might add

It's also interesting that the study found that since 1990 blacks who only represent 13% of the population for this period make up 51.3% of all HIV and AIDS cases diagnosed in the same period. I'm not sure what that tells us....would be curious to see what people suggest is the reason for this BIG TIME anomaly!
UDPATE 1: My buddy Kurt just shot me a link to a Rolling Stone article that validates my hunch on the badge of honor. Get ready to learn about Bug Chasers....sick bastards!
UPDATE 2: Kurt comes thru again with a story that may be one of the reasons for the numbers in the black community.
Then there is the lack of media coverage of this insanity. The number of Google hits on this story is paltry. It should be huge news and cause at a minimum every Bush voter outrage. I think it also proves (at least to me) that those who are terrified of the word "god" especially in this context and agree with the action taken against the teacher are just down right America hatters and something akin to communists. I also lump in the media...look at the San Jose Mercury News story title from the link above....wouldn't YOU write the headline as "Public School Bars Use of Declaration of Independence in class" Isn't that the story? But while all of these MF'rs are in fact America hatters they think they are patriots in supposedly not offending anyone and in their sick minds acting as the protectors of the church and state boundary the original framers had in mind.....these folks need to not be teaching or infecting our youth!

I can see the leftist politically correct couple taking their kids to the Holiday Tree Lighting at the town square; child: gee dad what's this holiday tree about? dad: well son, ah um, you see its sort of a time to rejoice and be thankful.... child: that's sounds like Thanks Giving dad...the only holiday I have heard of that decorates and puts lights on a tree and has something to do with Dec 25th is CHRISTMAS...dad!!!!!
This is just insane.......do people who are going to the fricken Christmas (because it's not a holiday or festivus tree for that matter) tree lightings think they are celebrating a Muslim event? A Buddhist one? Go get your own holiday you idiots...and I expect your asses at work on 12/25.

Case in point....yesterday's Pacers-Pistons NBA game had at first a player only brawl turn into a player spectator brawl supposedly spawned by a fan throwing a paper soda cup at a player. Later two fans having words with a player got the player to throw a bunch to the face of a fan taking him down, and so on. While we can only hope any criminal acts in this milay will be prospecuted (player or fan) the frequency of player loss of control at taunting from fans and even flying cups is COMPLETELY asinine.
This is a total lack of control and a disconnect from decency. The complicity by the NBA leadership with this constant behaivor makes it worse....an NBA spokesman couldn't comment until it "can review the incident". This is a total chicken shit protect the obviously wrong party stuff. You need to review it before you can say that punch throwing fights among players is wrong, and worse players engaging in fisticuffs with fans other than for self defence is unacceptable and should be criminally prosecuted? You can always cover the rush to judgement by saying what action the NBA will take will be decided on review of the incident. However, the review should take about 5 minutes of video watching. Why do you need to interview anybody? There is no excuse regardless of what anybody said or that a cup was thrown...doesn't matter one bit. If the NBA doesn't start suspending for 1 year a player who strikes a player to the head with a close fist, and for life for the same to a fan, then they are complicit and I'll help with their demise.

And the racist comments about Condi Rice keep coming, the lastest is some obscure Milwaukee radio talk show host who called Rice "Aunt Jemima" and was planning on today's show to give away Aunt Jemima pancake mix and syrup. He apparently has also refered to Colin Powell as an "Uncle Tom". The local mayor denounced the comments, but the local NAACP spokes person couldn't comment until she heard the remarks in their entirety. OH, SO I CAN CALL A BLACK AND UNCLE TOM OR AUNT JEMIMA IN A CERTAIN CONTEXT????? What the F....it's apparently only racist if you're referring to a liberal!
Wednesday, November 17, 2004
And you expect no less from Al-Jazeera who apparently has been playing the shooting of this person in Falluja over and over and they are others in the region call it an "execution". Oh, SO THEY ARE AGAINST EXECUTIONS????? Man we should be using more MOAB's over there!!!!! FYI, now Al-Jazeera says it has a video tape of a women being shot in the head which is assumed to be Margaret Hassan the CARE director in Iraq who was abducted.
Care to guess how many of groups and individuals who are so outspoken about this most likely justified shooting in the mosque in Falluja will have something negative to say about the killing of Margaret Hassan?

I have never understood deep antisemitic feelings many all over the world have....is this root cause of this pass the media and others give Arafat? I have no other explanation? It's also interesting that Israel is most often portrayed as evil. Yet the suicide bombers are almost always aimed at Israeli civilians while Israel's military actions are almost uniformly surgical in nature trying to avoid collateral damage. In fact I think given that Israel is surrounded by unfriendly's I'm amazed at the restraint they have shown in not unleashing their rather impressive military might on those who would kill them at any opportunity.

It's Veterans Day...don't forget what this means, if you can't thank a vet in person give thanks in your own way for the men and women who have sacrificed throughout our history so that we can live free in the most prosperous land in the world. The American Dream is alive and well and your share in that dream is only governed by your own desire and drive. A land where the vast majority are down right good loving people who will help their fellow man, come to a strangers rescue and look you in the eye and say hello. I'll steal the final words of Mr. Owens whose NRO article today ends with: So pray for our servicemen in Fallujah today and for the souls of those who have given the last full measure. May they rest in peace. Happy birthday, Marines. Semper fi. And to all veterans, God bless you and thank you for your service. And may you live long, sweet lives.
Arafat finally in a box!
Amid the inappropriate stories on Arafat's death that offer praise, or sole saving, we find an occasional sane response...here's one: Arafat the Monster. And of course Jimmy Carter continues his journey with senility describing him as a "powerful human symbol" but leaves out what he thinks the symbol represents...how about terrorism and death to jews!
I don't much like Bill Maher, right now he's not liking the Internet since it's front page on the Drudgereport that he's been hit with a palimony suit!
Some on the left are trying to calm the post election hysterical elements in their party....the new strategy that you already see forming is a trojan horse! The liberals I know have brain wiring different from me....there's no way that they will over the next 4 years line up with me on pivotal issues or even get close for that matter. I fully believe, like Kerry, that those who will lobby for the nomination for the Dems in 2008 will say anything to try and appear more centrist...but that's just a book cover....the book won't change. While Billary Clinton thinks she's being sneaky by suddenly throwing out religious references here and there, some are talking about it openly. Not about changing their core beliefs, but about how to make others think you are, case in point: More Muscle, More God, Less Shrum
Peggy Noonan's piece in today's WSJ had a description of Bush I like and believe....Kerry tried to slide into some of those descriptions but with no credibility.
I think Mr. Bush, the better man in terms of character, was also the more normal man. And we like normal. He loves sports and business and politics, and speaks their language. Normal. His wife is important to him, and his kids seem a bit of a mystery to him, and perhaps even to some degree intimidating. Normal. He thinks if bad guys attack New York City and the Pentagon, we go after them and kill them--normal. He thinks marriage is between a man and a woman--normal. He thinks if Baptist preachers in a suburb of Louisville have an after-school plan that has an excellent record of turning kids from juvenile delinquency to thinking about college, those Baptist preachers should be helped and encouraged every way we can, and it has nothing to do with "church and state." Normal. He thinks if there's an old plaque bearing the Ten Commandments on the wall of the courthouse you should leave it alone--it can't hurt, and it might help. Normal.

The Washington Post reports on a particularly rich comment from Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader:
Pelosi, addressing reporters after lunching with about 100 House Democrats, said her party will speak out when it believes Bush and the GOP-controlled Congress are mismanaging Iraq, tax policies or the deficit. "The president won't be able to blame anyone, because the Republicans have full control," Pelosi said. Although Republicans have controlled the White House, Senate and House for two years, she said, "the American people did not know that. And now they do."
If "the American people did not know" that the GOP held the White House and majorities in both houses of Congress in 2003 and 2004, what makes her think we've caught on now?
At the moment, we have parts of the country in which the civilian population has been hijacked by the terrorists and insurgents. That is unacceptable. Worse still is that the terrorists and insurgents operating from places like Fallujah are exporting their violence to other parts of the country, terrorizing and killing innocent Iraqis and those seeking to protect them. I cannot allow these terrorists to continue to murder with impunity.
I was a little surprised by the lack of any mention in your letter of the atrocities which these groups have committed. I believe that the blame for the violence and difficulties in Iraq at the moment should be laid squarely at their door. The same group who murdered so many of your staff in the bombing of the U.N. headquarters last year, has since murdered hundreds of innocent Iraqis and committed countless other atrocities. We have overwhelming evidence that they have used and continue to use Fallujah as a base of operations.

Global terror is everywhere. Global terror is down the street, around the block. Global terror is in California. There's global terror everywhere and it's absurd to think you can get it by going to one country and dropping tons of bombs on innocent people.
Despite their popularity as entertainers, these performers maintain at best a love-hate relationship with the general public (and feed innumerable tabloids with lurid tales of their personal problems), so their endorsements of candidates mean almost nothing. Moreover, movies long ago ceased functioning as a unifying celebration of populist values and now serve a primarily youthful niche market. Even box-office blockbusters typically draw only seven million or eight million people on their opening weekends--less than half the number who listen to Rush Limbaugh in any given week.
I fully believe that people like Jesse Jackson, Kweisi Mfume, Julian Bond and most of the Congressional Black Caucus don't want this situation to improve! Their hateful and racist propaganda serves to keep the myth that a racist white population and government are the cause of all that ails the black population. After all if that weren't true many of these so called black leaders would be out of a job or even less significant on the national scene than they already are. I like a quote from Hymowitz's piece by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates :
"Are white racists forcing black teenagers to drop out of school or have babies?"
While my own childhood didn't include hyper focus on education (high school and college) I think that it is the key to reversing some of the damage for those already under the inner city fatherless handicap. For each child we rescue we hopefully create a desire not to just gratify primal sexual urges but to create a life out of love, to experience the joy of guiding your own flesh and blood to be and do better than oneself. That's a feeling that is, I'm sure, completely void from the mind of the bastard creating men and women of the inner city.
The election results reflect the decision of the right wing to cultivate and exploit ignorance in the citizenryAnd Goldberg on Smiley:
A woman who couldn't catch a clue if you used one as a pestle and her brain pan as the mortar
I also love how Goldberg describes the liberal defective Maureen Dowd & Paul Krugman:
As we all know, one's a whining self-parody of a hysterical liberal who lets feminine emotion and fear defeat reason and fact in almost every column. The other used to date Michael Douglas.
Read all of Goldberg's NRO piece....great stuff!

Liberals are more willing than conservatives to make the majority suffer to protect the minorities. And the fact that the liberal leadership is profoundly secular in its orientation makes it easy to interpret this as hostility to religion, or to religiosity, generally. We claim that we are merely carrying out the Enlightenment program of getting the heavy hand of the state off religion, but that's not really a very convincing claim given our own actual beliefs and practices, and given the sheer hatred and contempt the usual liberal commentator can pack into the word "fundamentalist." Where, one might reasonably ask, is liberal tolerance when the chips are down?
Saturday, November 06, 2004
Every election year, we in the commentariat come up with a story line to explain the result, and the story line has to have two features. First, it has to be completely wrong. Second, it has to reassure liberals that they are morally superior to the people who just defeated them..
In past years, the story line has involved Angry White Males, or Willie Horton-bashing racists. This year, the official story is that throngs of homophobic, Red America values-voters surged to the polls to put George Bush over the top. This theory certainly flatters liberals, and it is certainly wrong.
But the same insularity that caused many liberals to lose touch with the rest of the country now causes them to simplify, misunderstand and condescend to the people who voted for Bush. If you want to understand why Democrats keep losing elections, just listen to some coastal and university town liberals talk about how conformist and intolerant people in Red America are. It makes you wonder: why is it that people who are completely closed-minded talk endlessly about how open-minded they are?

UPDATE: too funny....conservative radio host Glenn Beck got thousands of people to pledge a few bucks each to buy 2 first class tickets one way from UT to Ireland for Robert Redford who apparantly told some reporter he would move to Ireland if Bush was elected. Beck couldn't figure out how to send the tickets directly to Redford so now they are raising funds to take out a full page ad in the paper where Redford lives!
I would love to find the audio, video and print from all the celebrity pundits who so flippantly made similar hollow threats of leaving the country in a Bush victory. Build a website and show them all....raise money to charter a 747 that will take the entire "enlightened" bunch all at once from LAX (most are there anyway) to Charles De Gualle Airport!
This pseudo intellectualism and vanity they liberal elite have does not allow them to have a stable moral core. They believe in some sort of utopia where everyone loves everyone and that there is no higher being governing a higher moral code (while I'm a wait and see catholic I still believe in following a moral code completely in line with Jewdeo Christian beliefs). All actions, all ways of living life are valid in their view because you must feel that way in order to love each and every person or thing and insure that love comes back. They do not believe in a true evil and that any demonstration of evil is not the fault of the evil doer! They put propositions on the ballet to let criminals out of jail. They want to talk when shooting is justified. They scorn our police and military for not treating criminals and the enemy with kid gloves.
I believe they fear taking a stand in direct opposition to these anomalous ideas and beliefs they embrace. Just like communism would distribute wealth equally to the people they would distribute their morality and beliefs to the people equally. It's completely diametrically opposed to our type of democracy formed by our founding fathers who were not shy about connecting a moral code and our freedoms to a god. It's not that you need to believe in a god, but we are flawed and so a belief in a common good and the idea of ultimate authority can keep us in line.
More examples of this blind elitism from slate.com The unteachable ignorance of the red states.

San Jose Mercury News
Then there are the angry left which are easy to find in blogger land....amazing that these ingrates think they are intellectually superior and also more tolerant than the majority (Bush supporters) when their rhetoric is diametrically opposed to that notion and down right treasonous. To wish for the killing or suffering of fellow Americans or anyone for that matter is vile. For just one example check this poor excuse for a human being...kos and also his agreeable commenters!

Kerry is said to have told the president that the country is too divided and
that "we really have to do something about it." The country is divided, but the
division is in favor of President Bush and his party. If the goal is to decrease
division in the context of a democratic society, the Democrats will have to
accept this voter-imposed reality to a much greater degree than they have shown
any past willingness to do. I'm not expecting much from Kerry in this regard.
First time in 16 years the winner got more than 50% of the vote.
House and Senate both have improved control by Republicans.
Tom Daschle is gone.
California voted almost perfectly on propositions.....the stem cell initiative passed and that's BS....while I don't care to debate fetal stem cells versus stem cells from babies thru adults the real BS of that initiative is that California tax payers are going to fund research to benefit the entire world. While that sounds noble, it would be nice if everyone paid their fair share.
Ock...FU and I know who you are!

According to Powerline, Dems have so far filed 35 suits in 17 states....Dems have 2000 lawyers in Florida
Stem cell activists steal Bush signs
Crazy Floridian tries to run over Katherine Harris
ABC News sits on terror tape that would without question benefit Bush
Illegal alien is deputy registrar and registers people who tell her they're illegals!!!!!
The evidence of corruption, law breaking, lying, anything goes tactics isn't exclusive to the Dems but officially organized Dems are for more active and ALL the loons acting on their own are liberals...of course that's no surprise.
“After repeatedly calling Iraq the wrong war, and a diversion, Senator Kerry this week seemed shocked to learn that Iraq is a dangerous place, full of dangerous weapons…”“If Senator Kerry had his way…Saddam Hussein would still be in power. He would control those all of those weapons and explosives and could share them with his terrorist friends. Now the senator is making wild charges about missing explosives, when his top foreign policy adviser admits, quote, 'We do not know the facts.' Think about that: The senator is denigrating the actions of our troops and commanders in the field without knowing the facts…..”
“Our military is now investigating a number of possible scenarios, including that the explosives may have been moved before our troops even arrived at the site. This investigation is important and it's ongoing. And a political candidate who jumps to conclusions without knowing the facts is not a person you want as your commander in chief."

Fast forward to today...Kerry has been on the stump in the last few days talking about the incompetence of Bush for loosing these weapons. Not only were the weapons gone before we got there but the implication is also that this was recently discovered. Kerry also claims Bush failed to secure the 380 tons of explosive and we are less secure because of it. The Dems couldn't figure out this was old news and that the stuff was gone when we got there? Or they knew but decided this was a good lie? Or Kerry is suggesting we should have, or he would have, gone into Iraq earlier and thus that stockpile would have still been there? OK you dems explain this one to me....explain the honesty of you long face Kerry! CBS is also a turd in that they were going to run a 60 minutes piece on this just before the election as if reporting it this way was factual. The liberal power brokers are the most dishonest lying cheating bastards around!
But in order to win a war, you have to have the vision and determination to
fight it despite setbacks and political difficulties. Americans should be wary
of politicians who promise more "competent" leadership in a war that those same
politicians say they'd rather not fight.

Kerry says he is big on telling the truth and he has a plan....but he has a plan for fixing so many things even beyond his control it's not only ludicrous it's political snake oil or lies. Things that would have been or will be different according to Kedwards if he/they had been or becomes president.
- Osama would be dead
- Iraq, Iran, N. Korea or any other rogue nation wanting WMDs or nukes would acquiesce simply from UN pressure
- The economy (already better) would rain money
- Housing (already better) would had by all
- Christopher Reeves would alive and walk
- Every citizen could get elective surgery
- Corporations would pay a lot more tax and magically they could without laying people off
- The French, Germans, Spain, etc. would all hold hands with us on the battlefield
- The UN would be the new world super power
- All children would get private school quality education at public schools
- Every city would have more fire fighters and police
- The border would be more secure, every container, parcel or letter would be inspected
- Every person with a terrorist plot would be identified by the Minority Report triplets
- The people paying nearly all taxes now would pay even more
- Drugs would be free, new drugs would spring up like Starbucks coffee houses because you would be allowed to use the remnants from abortion clinics and childbirth free from scrutiny
- All parents with gay children would be identified publicly.
- All profiling, for any purpose would be banned....except for college entrance, employment and government grants!
Too many more to list....seems like an easy choice.

Too many young people do no homework at all on important issues. They get what they think is the definitive story from MTV, musicians, actors and Rolling Stone articles. They believe that entertainment sources have some enlightened and unbiased positions on things outside of entertainment. They think Sean Penn saw the real Iraq. They think a CEO of Fortune 500 company screwed a bunch of little people to make his millions and yet the wonderful great role model millionaire NBA players or rap artists earned every dime. They believe Michael Moore disseminates facts. They believe Bush actually knew Saddam had no WMD's left in Iraq even though half a dozen foreign country intelligence agencies along with our own (and Kerry) believed he did. They believe if you can think up a conspiracy then one likely exists. They think others around the world liking us is more important than nearly anything else. They think the UN is a wonderful honest collection of altruistic people. They believe in freedom of speech unless the word "god" is involved. They have selective hearing and site and will not recognize anything that is in conflict with their beliefs.
I in fact believe the number of young people who fit these descriptions is large....and I'm sure some who are no longer young would actually fit this profile as well....it is overwhelmingly scary to have a person in power these head in the sand people would vote for.
UPDATE: I have never heard of this group, California College Republicans, but it's nice to see some college age kids that don't fit my fearful profile. The CCR has an interesting press release and protest of MTV planned because of their claim that MTV has participated in the blatant military draft lie spread to scare young adults into voting for Kerry. Also interesting that the Chairman of the CCR is a student at the Peoples Republic of Berkeley!...maybe there's hope after all!
Gee, speak of the NAACP....National Association for the Advancement of Colored People! As a white person, don't I have color? (I assume beige is a color) Does the NAACP support my advancement? Would anyone have a problem if I said my company has no problem hiring colored people? I think this falls under the bullshit hypocrite double standard of it's ok for a black to say the n word but not me. The front page of the NAACP site says:
Today we face a renewed effort as the forces of racism and retrogression inOf course I didn't see examples of this referenced...only the link to join and donate under this statement. Of course if this evil wasn't on the rise and it was generally accepted as no longer being an issue the NAACP would have no reason to exist? Sort of a conflict for these boys isn't it?
America are again on the rise. Many of the hard-earned civil rights gains of the
past three decades are under assault.

You have to be kidding me.....why can't you be objective? If you want to give your F'ing opinion then don't call it the ABC News with Peter Jennings, call it ABC's My Damn Opinion with Peter Jennings!
Is the U.N. Worth Dying For?
From an article in today's Washington Post on John Kerry's approach to foreign policy:
Kerry's belief in working with allies runs so deep that he has maintained that
the loss of American life can be better justified if it occurs in the course of
a mission with international support. In 1994, discussing the possibility of
U.S. troops being killed in Bosnia, he said, "If you mean dying in the course of
the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American
troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the
outcome, the answer is unequivocally no."
So the U.N.--that club of dictators and anti-Semites--is worth dying for, but America isn't? This quote sharply summarizes why the thought of waking up two weeks from today to the news that Kerry is president-elect invokes in us a sense of utter dread.
For a concrete example of how this might play out, we turn to Park Sang-seek, a Korean "peace studies" academic, who writes (with apparent approval) in the Korea Herald:
Kerry is likely to rely on the United Nations in dealing with any future crises
in Northeast Asia and the Korean Peninsula. Take a hypothetical situation in the
Korean Peninsula: it is discovered that North Korea has experimented with
nuclear weapons or exported nuclear materials to hostile nations or terrorist
groups. Bush may make a surgical strike without consulting South Korea and the
United Nations. Kerry is likely to try to solve the issue through multilateral
forums, particularly the United Nations.
If North Korea gives nukes to terrorists and this is how a President Kerry responds, soldiers may not be the only Americans to die for the U.N.

Sex: cheap shot by Kerry...when he mentioned Cheney's lesbian daughter in the last debate it was clearly to remind the most conservative Republicans that a gay person was close to the administration. If Edwards had a gay child and Bush thru that out (especially as Kerry did with little to no connection to the topic) the mainstream press would have crucified Bush....see much on this story?
Lies: Both Kerry and Bush got facts wrong...ok call that a tie
Plan: Proof that libs have EBD....apparently if you just say "plan" a bunch of times people who have EBD will say they heard details of the plan...be careful if you ask someone afflicted with EBD to give you some details of the plan...they may experience convulsions and loose control of their bowels.
Armchair Quarterback: This didn't work in my title, but it is interesting that everyone I have watched the debates with or talked to about them after the fact had responses at various spots for each debate that would not have just been better than what the candidate said but would have annihilated the opponent. One would think both of these guys would think better on their feet. Now I realize we are just armchair quarterbacking here and that's an order of magnitude easy than real time with cameras rolling...but I sure wish Bush would have said the following at some point in any of the debates. "You know, my opponent basis his entire candidacy on the notion that not a single thing in our country is working. To believe him every single thing that effects you that the government can affect is broken. But wait, he has a plan to fix every single one of these broken things." and you can can go on and on.
Fear: If you're intellectually honest (and don't have EBD) you can easily see that the entire Democratic machine is using a fear campaign. Kerry and Edwards say everything is wrong, broken and getting worse, that we're no safer than before 9/11, etc. Official DNC efforts, or by operatives give us the bogus draft campaign, violent protestors at events along with the many RNC office attacks. The DNC handbook that tells local offices to charge voter intimidation even if none exists. The DNC talking heads are saying "just watch the republicans will try to steal the election again". Look, do some research. The effort to use fear and smear is huge on the DNC side...if you can't run on your record and detailed ideas what else can you do.

For some time, and including when I spoke at the Republican Convention, I’ve wondered exactly what John Kerry’s approach would be to terrorism and I’ve wondered whether he had the conviction, the determination, and the focus, and the correct worldview to conduct a successful war against terrorism. And his quotations in the New York Times yesterday make it clear that he lacks that kind of committed view of the world. In fact, his comments are kind of extraordinary, particularly since he thinks we used to before September 11 live in a relatively safe world. He says we have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they’re a nuisance.
I’m wondering exactly when Senator Kerry thought they were just a nuisance. Maybe when they attacked the USS Cole? Or when they attacked the World Trade Center in 1993? Or when they slaughtered the Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972? Or killed Leon Klinghoffer by throwing him overboard? Or the innumerable number of terrorist acts that they committed in the 70s, the 80s and the 90s, leading up to September 11?
This is so different from the President’s view and my own, which is in those days, when we were fooling ourselves about the danger of terrorism, we were actually in the greatest danger. When you don’t confront correctly and view realistically the danger that you face, that’s when you’re at the greatest risk. When you at least realize the danger and you begin to confront it, then you begin to become safer. And for him to say that in the good old days – I’m assuming he means the 90s and the 80s and the 70s -- they were just a nuisance, this really begins to explain a lot of his inconsistent positions on how to deal with it because he’s not defining it correctly.
As a former law enforcement person, he says ‘I know we’re never going to end prostitution. We’re never going to end illegal gambling. But we’re going to reduce it.’ This is not illegal gambling; this isn’t prostitution. Having been a former law enforcement person for a lot longer than John Kerry ever was, I don’t understand his confusion. Even when he says ‘organized crime to a level where it isn’t not on the rise,’ it was not the goal of the Justice Department to just reduce organized crime. It was the goal of the Justice Department to eliminate organized crime. Was there some acceptable level of organized crime: two families, instead of five, or they can control one union but not the other?
The idea that you can have an acceptable level of terrorism is frightening. How do you explain that to the people who are beheaded or the innocent people that are killed, that we’re going to tolerate a certain acceptable [level] of terrorism, and that acceptable level will exist and then we’ll stop thinking about it? This is an extraordinary statement. I think it is not a statement that in any way is ancillary. I think this is the core of John Kerry’s thinking. This does create some consistency in his thinking.
t is consistent with his views on Vietnam: that we should have left and abandoned Vietnam. It is consistent with his view of Nicaragua and the Sandinistas. It is consistent with his view of opposing Ronald Reagan at every step of the way in the arms buildup that was necessary to destroy communism. It is consistent with his view of not supporting the Persian Gulf War, which was another extraordinary step. Whatever John Kerry’s global test is, the Persian Gulf War certainly would pass anyone’s global test. If it were up to John Kerry, Saddam Hussein would not only still be in power, but he’d still be controlling Kuwait.
Finally, what he did after the World Trade Center bombing in 1993, where I guess at that point terrorism was still just a nuisance. He must have thought that because that’s why he proposed seriously reducing our intelligence budget, when you would think someone who was really sensitive to the problem of terrorism would have done just the opposite. I think that rather than being some aberrational comment, it is the core of the John Kerry philosophy: that terrorism is no different than domestic law enforcement problems, and that the best we’re ever going to be able to do is reduce it, so why not follow the more European approach of compromising with it the way Europeans did in the 70s and the 80s and the 90s?
This is so totally different than what I think was the major advance that President Bush made – significant advance that he made in the Bush Doctrine on September 20, 2001, when he said we’re going to face up to terrorism and we’re going to do everything we can to defeat it, completely. There’s no reason why we have to tolerate global terrorism, just like there’s no reason to tolerate organized crime.
So I think this is a seminal issue, this is one that explains or ties together a lot of things that we’ve talked about. Even this notion that the Kerry campaign was so upset that the Vice President and others were saying that he doesn’t understand the threat of terrorism; that he thinks it’s just a law enforcement action. It turns out the Vice President was right. He does and maybe this is a difference, maybe this is an honest difference that we really should debate straight out. He thinks that the threat is not as great as at least the President does, and I do, and the Vice President does.
