11:05 am - Is this man crazy?

jackstikishack
Okay, I know Democrats went through the last 8 years being embarrassed by their president, so touche, but Obama is driving me nuts.

Lets just put aside the ridiculous domestic agenda.

What the F is he doing internationally.

He completely ignores Iran, eventually eeking out some harsh language followed by...well, no action at all. Why? Well, it's none of our business, really.

But Honduras? Oh, stand back, that's our business. Country after country in South and Central America are falling to socialism and worse like dominoes (yes, I said it!), and when Honduras's president says "hey, how about we toss out the Constitution and elect me president for life or something" and Honduras's own supreme court and congress say no, and order the military to detain him for attempting a power gram of Chavez proportions, well Obama just won't stand for that, will he.

Then it's all "illegal coup" and he doesn't recognize the new president, and hey, lets throw some economic sanctions on Honduras.

Well, fuck you, Barack!

6:00 pm - Yard signs

jackstikishack
Is anyone else finding it prohibitively difficult to get a yard sign?

I went down the the Republican 5th district HQ to buy some yard signs. I'd get them for upwards of four candidates. I'd pay $10 a pop or whatever. More for one of those awesome huge ones. But the guy says they don't sell them, they give them out in exchange for making 25 phone calls. The phone calls seem to be short surveys on how people are voting. I'd assume it helps them narrow down their call lists closer to the election or whatever, but damn. I really don't want to do that. Can't I just give them money? It seems kind of ridiculous. At least say "$25 for a sign, or 25 phone calls." That at least seems reasonable.

Is every republican district doing this, or just mine?

7:02 pm - ZOMGPalin!!!!1!11!1

jackstikishack
I am ridicuously happy about this pick. Palin is an ass-kicker extraordinaire.

I was at the Minnesota State Fair today when it was announced. I was wearing my McCain button and three people asked me what I thought about the pick. I said it was fantastic. She's a tremendous pick. They we're all "ahh.... it'll be interesting." and I could tell they were thinking "who is Sara Palin" and all I said to them was to watch and find out. They will bask in the awesomeness too.

Already liberals in my wife's friends page are saying condescending shit like "Oh, she was only picked because she was a woman." A) definition of sexist, because they assumed being a woman is all she's got to offer. B) It's ignorant, because none of them know anything about her background, nor seem interested to find out, and C) even if it were true, how does it not say something positive about America that putting a woman or a minority on your ticket is a BENEFIT and not a hinderance.

So much racism and sexism today is coming from the left. It's fucking obscene.

2:48 pm - Bluenecks

jackstikishack
I'm coining a new term: Blueneck

It means ignorant leftist dipshit.

I was at Perkins with a friend when this gang of dipshits came in and sat near us, taking up three tables. It was an odd assortment of teens and adults so I thought it was another fraking bible group that always comes there, and we ignored them because as much as we respect Christianity as an important movement that created our modern civilization, they can be really annoying in groups.

Zach when to the can and I was sitting there when all of the sudden the adults started talking to each other. They started talking about Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest presidents we've ever had, and I swear to God, they said (I'm paraphrasing):

- was he a profound racist
- he owned slaves himself
- though he did free the slaves of the south, he let the north keep their slaves.
- he allowed indentured servitude in the north, which is the same thing as slavery.
- indentured servitude was for a limited amount of time, but at the end the master would claim all kinds of debts the servant owed him, and he'd never be free.

Okay, BULLSHIT

- Lincoln was anti-slavery since he was a boy, as were his parents and church.
- He NEVER owned a fucking slave.
- Slavery was abolished in the North well before the Civil War. That's kinda what it was about.
- Slavery is forced bondage; indentured servitude is a voluntary contract (though it's still not a good idea)
- While there were probably jackasses, in truth an indentured servants contract not only set them free after so many years, but the master has to provide them with land, clothes, certain goods, and money.

Seriously, I'm sick of this. 95% of all hatred, bullying, and historical/cultural/political ignorance is coming from the left today.

Fucking Bluenecks.

12:30 am - Wiccan Soldier

syganzychick
I am pissed. I just saw something on Fox new's site that upsets me immensely. If I could figure out how to link to it, I would.

Last fall, Patrick Stewart of the United States Army, gave his life for his country in Afghanistan. He died in the line of duty, helping free a country from an oppressive religious, dictatorship. He has been honored as one of our country's heroes- except for one small detail. The US Department of Veterans affairs won't allow his grieving widow to put a symbol of his faith on his memorial plaque. Because his symbol of faith is a pentacle.

Wicca is a religion recognized by both the united states military and government. Military chaplains are trained in how to provide religious counseling to pagan soldiers. To the best of my knowledge, christianity, judaism, islam and even atheism are all accepted by the government and the families of soldiers of those faiths are allowed to place symbols on their faith on their memorials when they give their lives for their country. Why is paganism so different? Why is the united states department of veterans affairs going against the constitutional right of freedom of religion???

Apparently the only consolation they had for his widow was a statement that said "the department has received two requests recently to recognize a Wiccan emblem of belief. When we make a decision on those requests, the affected parties will be notified."

Hello? What's the issue here? Did we forget about the constitition. Emblem of belief. Wiccan (which is a religion). I do believe this falls under the category of religous freedom! Since when do some religions get freedome to express themselves and some don't?

It just really really gets my goat that this man stood up and died for his country while trying to bring freedom to people that was basically being religiously abused because as americans, we value our freedoms. And this man's widow cant even have the freedom to honor him and his beliefs. It's unconstitutional and un american. I must say, I am disgusted.

Don't get me wrong. I am a bi-sexual, pagan conservative. I believe in this country, I support the troops and I love that I was born in the greatest democracy on the planet. But because I love this country, I will defend to my death your right to say what you want and worship who you want, even if I don't agree. There should be no argument on this point. The man is a hero, and deserves a heroes honor and rememberance, no matter what his religious affiliation is.

8:51 pm - You always suspected this didn't you...

simarilian
Sean Penn admits that the only thing that can make him feel better is violating Ann Coulter.

Drudge always digs up the dirt. People like Sean Penn are always so caring and tolerant, unless you disagree with his politics. Then you're scum and deserve any abuse and torture that their fevered little minds can fantasize up. Makes you wonder where a professional would place them on the line between madness and sanity. Or would that be a stupid question to a biased audience?

11:03 am - I don't frickin' believe this!

jackstikishack
Those shameless whores.

So the Christian protesters kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq are free. Here's a statements made by their organization:

http://www.pulse24.com/News/Top_Story/20060323-005/page.asp

Well, it's so nice they were "released" but nope! Check this one out:

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/23/international/middleeast/23cnd-hostages.html?ei=5065&en=544b2c32fb08db4e&ex=1143781200&partner=MYWAY&pagewanted=print

They were freed by troops!

THOSE FUCKERS! They never even aknowledged, much less thanked, the military for saving them. Even after their friend was killed by terrorists, and after being held hostage for months, they think we're the bad guys!

SMITE THEM, JESUS! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!

8:34 pm - Numbers

vnsplshr
On Saturday, I happened on the anti-war march in my city. There were many signs, chants and costumes. I can respect that. Some people feel the need to get out there and show their opposition. I watched the entire parade from front to back, and it took about twelve minutes to pass.

Then I heard the numbers claimed by the police and the march organizers.

Police: 3200
Marchers: 4200

From my standpoint, I watched twelve minutes of people marching in two lanes of traffic. They were maybe six to eight people across. That means 400 - 500 rows of people wandered by in that brief time. Wha? It could be done, but I'm not buying it, this time.

My point is just to highlight another chapter in the number games we play here in the city. When we have a rally, the claimed numbers are all over the place; when they have a march, it's the same thing.

If only one side or the other could accomplish something BIG. Why can't we have tens of thousands in the streets? Why can't we have one side or the other win a landslide election? Why can't a million --blank-- march have a two million person turnout?

1:57 pm - Question

jackstikishack
If we started calling them Neo-Terrorists, would liberals finally want to fight against them?

I'm getting so fucking tired of smelly hippies talk about how the Patriot Act, or traffic-monitoring cameras are going to usher in some sort of theocratic totalitarian state, but in 2006, real theocratic totalitarian states exist all over the middle east, and they don't give a flying fuck.

"So this is how a Democracy ends. With thunderous applause." Bullshit. Nine times out of ten Democracies are replaced by dictatorships with bullets in the head.

I've been debating posting about this here for some time. It's not really related to Tampa, but it does sort of involve me and I live in the Tampa bay area... If it's inappropriate, I apologize and feel free to delete it.

Anyway, I grew up just East of New Orleans and my home town was completely wiped out. Correction, my entire home parish (county) was wiped out. This has gotten a little press, but not as much as needed to fix the problem that caused the destruction. Half of my family suddenly became homeless due to hurricane Katrina. Their lives have been torn apart. The effect on St. Bernard Parish was total destruction. This has been the first time in FEMA history that an entire parish(county) had been wiped out by a "natural" disaster. Many families are planning on moving back or would if they could get one small thing done.

This is where I need your help. The reason all of St. Bernard was flooded was due to the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet, as admitted by Greg Breerwood of the Army Corps of Engineers in a report by ABC 26 News in New Orleans. The residents of St. Bernard didn't want it built before construction of it began; now they have more reason to get it shut down permanently as all their fears have come true. The Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) did two things: 1. it destroyed valuable wetlands that protected St. Bernard, the lower 9th Ward, and New Orleans East from the type of storm surge Katrina brought, and 2. it funned the surge right into these same areas. Dr. Hassan Mashriqui of the LSU Hurricane Center, a storm surge expert, speculates in the same report from ABC 26 New in New Orleans, that these to areas should not have flooded. According to this scientist, St. Bernard is mostly above sea level while the city is mostly below sea level and Chalmette, in particular, should have been the safest place in SE Louisiana from the storm surge.(You can view the report here, it's the first video link "Series introduction and analysis of Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) impact on the region, with Doug Mouton")

If the outrage of the man made destruction doesn't motivate, then perhaps you should consider the following: Taxpayers spent $22 million+ a year in upkeep of the MRGO so that deep draft vessels could have access to the inner harbor of the Port of New Orleans. This is a ridiculous amount if you consider the fact that the MRGO only produces about a million dollars a year of increased revenue to the Port. The wharves that utilize the MRGO could be relocated without a loss of jobs or revenue while saving tax payers 21 million dollars a year - money that could be used to rebuild the wetlands and long gone cypress forests that surrounded St. Bernard Parish among other things.

The MRGO has got to be shut down. I need everyone in the US to write their representatives demanding that the MRGO be closed. I also need you to please pass this message around so that more people know about this. If you need more information, please visit http://www.ccmrgo.org/ This will cost you nothing but a few moments, but would help a LOT of people.

7:38 pm - I just had to do it.

jackstikishack
I went to school today and an SUV was parked in the ramp. The car had a couple anti-Bush stickers on it and one said "Redefeat Bush in 2004"

Someone wrote on the grime of the window with their finger "<3 U R Great!" with an arrow pointing to the sticker.

I crossed out Great and wrote "living in the past."

It made me smile.

"Happy New Year", from the new fella.

I'm one of the few conservatives amongst the darksiders of Minneapolis. I
found this community while trying to replace the feeling I got from being
a member at RightGoths.com (now dead).

Minneapolis is a hotbed of the "hip-to-be-lefty" lifestyle. If you dress
a little granola, or a wear a little black, and you add in a "Not My
President" button or "Re-Unelect Bush" t-shirt, you can blend right in. In
all this "anti-only" lopsidedness, I can't see what anyone is "for". And
they seem so sad. Bitter, mopey and sad.

I'm happy on the right, but then I'm said to be "deceived" or a "dittohead".

Uh-huh.

Anyway... hi all.

Hey everyone! I just joined this community, definitely one of the most interesting republican sites i have found, thus far. Anyone, I dont know anybody personally with a lj, so I'm looking to make a few friends. I've already added a couple of you guys who have seemed cool to me and I'm always looking for more friends. I figure most of you have the right frame of mind and maybe a few more of you live in florida? Feel free to add me as I love reading and hearing other peoples thoughts and opinions. Anyhow, I hope everyone is having a splendid season and I wish you all a safe and happy new year!

9:00 am - Laughing at the spin

simarilian
Good Morning America gave me a good laugh this morning. I was watching the scroll on the bottom as I waited for coffee to brew. The scroll reported the analysis of some French official of the previous night's riots.

"With under 100 cars burned and only 33 arrests last night our country is now normal."

France normal? So the unrest has fallen to a level they feel they can tolerate? Will the rioters still succeed in bringing down Chiraq's government? Baghdad has fewer incidents nightly and the press considers that a quagmire.

I take the news with a different light. Despite the best intentions of the police to get along with the rioters the immigrants still are revolting yet at a lower volume than recently. Perhaps it was too much like real work and the unemployed teens got bored. But the Government knows and the French Iman's do as well that they could still rise up at any time unless they are well supplied with Bread and Circus to distract them with.

current mood: bouncy
