A net buddy of mine and I have been having some good chats about different things. He's a real radical thinker. One of those "Looney Left". We both have our points to make, mine are better, but one of the best debated topics we have engaged in is religious persecution.
His Point - The religious right of this country have persecuted the non-religious
My Point - The non-religious have been trying for years to silence the religious

In a recent post of his blog, he said, "No, the REAL religious persecution comes when you (Your Average Fundy) wants to push your religion down MY throat. When you want to stick YOUR 10 Commandments into OUR court houses. When you want to shove your MISINTERPRETED religious beliefs in OUR public schools." I'm not a religious person, as I've stated before I'm an agnostic, but it's my understanding of Christian teachings that Christ said something to the effect of "Go forth and spread the word." That's what they’re trying to do. Now I don't agree with it 100%. We should leave people to worship, or not, as they see fit. But we can't tell people to NOT try and spread the word that they live their lives by and they believe in. That's trying to silence them. That's persecution. We all have the right in this great country to say what we want, within reason.

He doesn’t want the 10 Commandments in a federal courthouse. I can understand that's his choice, but to say flat-out "no" is as bad as the ones who want it displayed flat-out saying "yes" it will be displayed. Just because it's yours, or my, opinion doesn't make it the right one.

GM, or JW, I'm sure we'll get into a few more passionate discussions, like abortion and the death penalty, and I'm looking forward to it.

Yesterday, President Bush signed into law the "Do Not Call List". About time. This list was setup to stop telemarketers from harrassing people at home. 50,000,000 Americans have signed up on the list. All was going fine until a liberal judge here in Oklahoma said, "NO". The the house and senate past legislation saying that it would go forward. And yet again another liberal judge in Colorado went against the American peoples wishes and said, "NO". And now President Bush has made it law. It's still being contested in court, but some telemarketer have said they'll honor the list. Good for them. Just leave me alone. I don't want any of the crap your trying to sell and I don't want to talk to you either.

Some here may be saying to themselves, Powerage, that's my internet name here, are you a die hard Republican? Do all of your view mesh with those of the stereotypical conservative. And my answer them is, "No". Not all my views are of the conservative variety, though most are. Some of the places were we differ are:

1. Guns - I hate guns. I think guns should be outlawed. The only people in the world that need guns are the police and military.
2. God - I'm an agnostic. I don't not believe in God or a God, it's just that I have some trouble excepting one.
3. Homosexuality - The stereotypical view of Republicans is that we hate gays. While it's true that some do, it's also true that some Democrats are homophobic as well. I don't care one way or the other. We're born loving who we love. We're not trained or brainwashed into it.

Those are the three big differences we have. I'm a registered Republican, but I consider myself an Independent Conservative. My views are my own, and I don't follow the trends set forth by other. This also goes for everything else. Fashion, music, movies and such. If it's popular, I more than likely hate it.

In 2001 Wes Clark (D) made a speach to Arkansas Republicans stating that, "I'm very glad we've got the great team in office, men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Paul O'Neill - people I know very well - our president, George W. Bush. We need them there." Clark, in the past, has voted for Nixon and Reagan, then said that we need Bush in the White House. Make up your mind Wes. Are you a Democrat or Republican? The way your flip flopping on your views, you must be a Democrat. About Ronald Wilson Reagan, Clark has said, "We were really helped when President Ronald Reagan came in ... He was truly a great American leader. And those of us in the Armed Forces loved him, respected him and tremendously admired him." I can't agree more with you Wes. Ronald Reagan is, and forever will be, a great man. A man that did change his views as well. Looks like Clark took a cue from Reagan, but in the wrong direction.

Well according to Hillary.

Who deserves credit for America's military victory over Saddam Hussein's armies four months ago?

Why, the Clinton administration, of course – at least according to Hillary Clinton.

The former first lady made the bizarre assertion Wednesday morning during remarks at Washington, D.C.'s Godfrey Sperling breakfast.

According to the Washington Times, she based the claim on something Vice President Dick Cheney said during Desert Storm about wars being won with the prior administration's military.

By that measure, said then-Defense Secretary Cheney, he should have written a thank-you note to President Reagan after Gulf War I.

"I don't think [Cheney has] done that to my husband yet," Hillary said, adding, "I'd be happy to deliver it personally."

I knew the Clinton's were arrogant and conceded, but this is laughable. The man who effectively destroyed the military during his 8-year reign, and his wife thinks we should thank him. Dear God.

Other news that I haven't had the chance to report on.
Carol Moseley Braun announced that she in the race officially. Why? No offense to her, I'm sure she's a very nice and intelligent woman, but she hasn't a snowballs chance in hell of winning. Why waste the money? I don't know.

A California Gubernatorial debate took place last night. I don't think there was a real winner, but I do think two people lost it. Arrian Huffington and Cruz Bustamante. She was like a yapping dog the whole time. She was in attack mode against Arnold. Funny, when just a couple of months ago she was knocking over microphones and people just to try and get next to him for a photo. Bustamante pulled and Al Gore. He kept sighing and rolling his eyes everytime someone attacked him. That's a no-no Cruz, didn't you learn anything for Al two years ago?

And lastly, for Gohan.

Been away for a couple of days, but now I'm back. Let's get to the news.

Hurricane Isabel made landfall yesterday. Good news and sad news to report about Isabel. Good news is that it really fell apart before it made landfall. Isable started as a catagory 5 hurricane, but by the time it made landfall it was downgraded to a catagory 1-2. Could have been a hundred times worse than it was. The sad news is that 17 people, as of this reporting, lost their lives as a result to the storm. I'm sure our thoughts and prayers go out to those that lost loved ones.

The 9th circuit court of appeals agrees to reconsider the delay of the California re-call election. The "Go cry to your mamma" Democrats and the ACLU, more about them below, originaly went to the 9th circuit court trying to get it pushed back to March of next year. Read the post "LOONY LEFT CRY FOUL" for more info. Three left wing judges ruled that the re-call election was unconstitutional because of the punch card voting machines in use in 44% of California. But they were okay when Davis won re-election the last time around.

The ACLU, stands for Anit-Conservative Liberal Union, are a bunch of hypocrites. Over the week, the liberal Lord and Savior, Bill Clinton made a stop in California to help Grey Davis beat back the vast Right-Wing consperacy and their attempst to remove the bumbling Governer from office. The two silver haired conmen paid a visit to a church in California to hold the rally. Now the ACLU is suppost to be all for the serparation of Chuch and State, yet they have yet to protest Clinton and Davis's actions. Holding a polital rally in a church, sounds like the bringing together of Church and State to me. I wonder if Bush were to hold a re-election rally in a church, would the ACLU protest and bitch about it? You better believe it.

The Vatican has thrown it's endorsement behind Mel Gibson's latest film, The Passion. The film is about the last hours of Christ. Many have condimed this film as being anti-semitic. But Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos has been quoted as saying, "I would like all Catholic priests in the world to see this film. I hope that all Christians can see it, everyone in the world." I for one want to see this movie. I'm not a religious person, I'm a agnostic, but this movie looks very interesting to me.

And finally, Bill O'Reilly's new book, Who's Looking Out for You?, is set to be released the 23rd of this month. It's destined to by a best seller, but I urge everyone to go out and buy a copy of it.

That's a lot of news.

Well, we now have 10 Democrats vying for the nomination. Let’s see if I can name them all.

Dean – Front runner. Something evil about his eyes. Don’t trust him. Wants to take money away from the poor. He wants to repeal all the tax cuts
Kerry – Vietnam War vet. Tries to portray himself as the big war hero.
Edwards – Good ‘Ol boy, but ashamed of it.
Clark – Eisenhower wannabe. But not. Michael Moore's favorite. Moore's endorsment alone would be enough to make me drop out.
Lieberman – The only one that makes any sense.
Sharpton- No chance in hell.
Kucinich – Who?
Braun – Again, who?
Gephardt – No chance.
Graham – Again, no chance in hell.

Damn, that’s better than most of the country. Most of the country can’t even name one of them.

The thing about these candidates is, not what they have to say, because so far they haven’t said anything about how they would do something, it’s all about who can bash Bush the best. That’s who’s going to get the nomination. All you have to say is “Bush is bad” the best way and *BOOM* you have the nomination. The Democrats are still upset that they lost in 2000 and 2002, so it’s whoever can stir up those feelings the best that they will choose.

A Son says he is disgusted that his late mother was forced to wait eight "traumatic" hours for an ambulance.

Stephen Brown even managed to fly back from a Spanish holiday and get to the hospital before his eighty-six-year-old mum, Clarice Burgin.

It was on August 11 that mum-of-nine Mrs Burgin became ill at her house in Western Spot Close, Ripley. Her family called her GP, who suspected pneumonia and immediately called an ambulance to take her to hospital within two hours. To meet Government targets, this should have arrived within 15 minutes of that two-hour spell.

That was at 2.20pm. The ambulance eventually arrived after 10pm. During the eight-hour wait, family members called the service several times, only to be told they were busy and it would be there soon.

Their mum eventually arrived at Derby City General Hospital at 10.45pm. Mr Brown (41), of Borrowfield Road, Spondon, was already there.

The next day, Mrs Burgin suffered a stroke and was later transferred to Ripley Hospital, where she died on September 6.

While I agree, in general, with the government taking over some of the health care of the eldery, I think it needs to be refined and worked out better. I mean eight hours for an ambulance it an outrage. These people haved worked for 50-60 years of their lives. When they retire, some aren't able to pay for everything they need. Something needs to be done about this. Lower prescription costs or something.

In another show of Democrat hypocrisy, liberals are rejoicing today at the announcement of retired General Wesley Clark throwing his hat into the 2004 presidential election. Where does the hypocrisy come in? During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Democrats where everywhere yelling about how war is immoral and wrong, yet they can’t stop creaming their jeans over Clark and John Kerry. Two men who fought in Vietnam. Two men who where there killing people, the very thing Democrats where bitching about over the last year. Can you say double standard? Where are Democrats morals? Where are their ethics? You either support war veterans, or you don’t. You can’t pick and choose the ones you love and the ones you hate. But this is nothing new. During Clinton’s ’98 bombing of Iraq, Democrats supported him and his statements that Hussein had WMD. But Bush says the exact same thing, and they get their panties in a bunch and call him a liar.

My Profile

Born August 23, 1979. Not married and no kids. Hell, I don't even like kids. I'm from Oklahoma so I am a Redneck. And proud of it. I'm waiting for that big day when I win the lotto and never have another worry again. And worry I do. I suffer from Agoraphobia. That's a fear of crowds and crowded areas. A little Anxiety, but I've never had a panic attack. I use to categorize myself as a Republican, but they've went off the tracks a little too much for me so I'm now left without a party. I do, however, consider myself a Traditionalist Conservative with Libertarian leanings.

I am half Tsalagi (Cherokee). I enjoy long walks on the beach, non-smokers... wait, that's for something else. And I've never even been to the beach. The closest I've ever gotten was Lake Tenkiller. I'm somewhat of a computer geek, more so in my mind than in reality. And as you can see, I'm one handsome SOB. You can follow me on Twitter @NativePatriot or Facebook at Christopher Lee. I love the Blues, Classic Rock, Classical, 80's Rap and Techo/Electronica/Trance etc.... I read Stephen King and I love a good game of Footie. Or Soccer for the Americans.


I created the Wednesday Hero posts because the only time the news media talked about our men and women in the military was when they used them as pawns in their "We hate Bush and his illegal war" stories. I felt they deserved better than that. I also wrote two short stories: Blood Plague and Tony The Gerbil.

If you think we could be more than just friends call me at... wait, sorry, got lost again.

You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
You know it's going to get harder and harder and harder as you get older
And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south
Hide your head in the sand
Just another sad old man
All alone and dying of cancer

At least according to ex-Marine George Andres's homeowners association. The association in question has threatened to forclose on Mr. Andres's home in an attempt to collect legal expenses and fines it says he owes because of his defiance of association’s orders to remove his flagpole. However, thanks to Sean Hannity of the Fox News show Hannity and Colmes, this story has become something of a nation wide phenomenon. Mr. Hannity has stated that he would raise at least $25,000 for Mr. Andres's cause. Even going so far as to pledge $5,000 of his own money.

What the hell has happened to this country when we aren't even allowed to fly the U.S. flag? This flag symbolizes everything this great country stands for. The founding fathers must be turning over in their graves with the mess we have become.
To find out how this sad turn of events happened, go to Newsmax.com for the story.

The “Go cry to your mamma” democrats have done it again. They are now saying that the California gubernatorial recall is “unfair” because of the punch-card system 44% of California uses. However, they thought it was okay when Davis won re-election the last time. What’s different this time? The fact that it looks like Davis is a goner and that a Republican could very well be the next Governor of loony land California. Just another example of how the liberal left cries foul every time something doesn’t go their way.
God Bless America, God Bless Republicans

The Ting Tings are a great pop duo from England that have a fresh, upbeat sound that you will find yourself dancing to. You can't help it. Their debut album, "We Started Nothing" is one of the better albums I've heard in a while. There's really no song on here that's not good. And with the song "That's Not My Name" you'll find yourself really getting into the beat. The only gripe is that it's a very short album clocking in at 37 minutes. But it's a great album that you should own.
