A Blessing From Heaven

Sure, it might kill a few people, cause millions of dollars in damage and cause a few thousand to end up homeless but thank God for Gustav.

And on Olbermann's show no less. What a shocker.

Now we have former DNC chairman Don Fowler & Congressman John Spratt joking about Gustav, and it was caught on video. The audio is a little hard to understand, but you do hear enough to know they're talking about hurricane Gustav.

"I think this demonstrates God's on our side"

Don Fowler apologizes for his comment and then blames the person who taped him saying it.
One doesn't anticipate that one's private conversation will be surreptitiously taped by some right-wing nutcase, but that's the nature of what we're dealing with."

I Want To Live In Ted Nugent's America

I watched the interview that Glenn Beck did with Ted Nugent, and as I'm listening to him I found myself nodding my head, saying "yes", "absolutely", "damn right". The essential theme of Nugent's philosophy is "We The People". This is our country, not the politicians, and we're letting it be corrupted and screwed over by them and we need to take it back. Read the interview. It's about a 1/4 of the way down the page.

Indian Chris Supports...

McCain/Palin? Sen. John McCain finally revealed his choice for V.P. Gov. of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Never heard of her, but in most cases you've never heard of the pick for V.P. But from what I've heard about her in the past few hours, she's someone I could support. From small town America, same as me. She's pro-life. Same as me. Fiscally Conservative. Like me. She's for more drilling of domestic oil and development of new energy resources. Just like me. She's a former beauty pageant contestant. Just like me. I was rooting for Lieberman as I think he would have made a good choice, but I think McCain made a savvy move picking Gov. Palin. There are a lot of women who voted for Hillary that feel as though they've been dismissed by Obama. While most would probably never vote for McCain, I'm willing to be that some of those 18,000,000 may just cross party lines. While I still don't support McCain yet, after the coming RNCC I think will have made up my mind as to whether I will support McCain/Palin or whether I will sit this election out. I want to see how she does and what she has to say. Right now though, it's looking like I may just support the ticket. I'm starting to get a little more energized.

Biden On Terrorism

1. It's a stupid question. Might as well ask "What's more likely to kill the average American? A swarm of killer bees, dehydration or a drunk driver?" But it's Bill Maher, so there you go.

2. Biden thinks corn syrup is more dangerous than terrorism, and where's the DNCC being held? The Pepsi Center. Oh the irony.
I wonder when the Obama campaign is going to write to MSNBC about Keith Olbermann?
"It is absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airwaves"
Just replace "Kurtz" with "Olbermann". But it may not matter as it seems Joe Scarborough is about to take a baseball bat upside his fat, overinflated head.
"At the very least, they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz's lies."
It seems the Obama campaign supports the "Fairness" Doctrine.

ICE Agents Do Their Job

Federal officials say nearly 600 suspected illegal immigrants were detained in a raid on a manufacturing plant in southern Mississippi, making it the largest such sweep in the country.
A spokeswoman says more than 100 of those caught up in Monday's raid on Howard Industries were released based on humanitarian concerns, mostly because they have children.
Boo-hoo. The drug dealer down the street has kids. Should he not be arrested? The mother of two in my apartment was driving while intoxicated last night. Should she not be arrested?

Now, illegals are scared. Oh no.
"We have kids without dads and pregnant mothers who got their husbands taken away," said Velez's son, Robert, youth pastor at the church. "It was like a horror story. They got handled like they were criminals."
According to that second definition from Merriam-Webster, they are criminals Padre.

It seems their token Republican is fed up with the "news" network and isn't afraid to air the dirty laundry live.

Biden On Indians

I've had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking
I love the phrase "taken out of context". It can explain every ignorant, bone headed, stupid, racist thing we say.

I went to the store yesterday to buy a watermelon for my party, but I couldn't get to them because of all the black people. I was taken out of context. The point I was making was that the black community whole-heatedly supports the American farmer.

See, all washed away.

Thank You

Thank you everyone who stopped by to wish me a happy birthday. Being 29, this is my last birthday before I'm officially "old".

Biden On Obama

It didn't take long for Sen. McCain to get, yet another good, ad up in response to Obama announcing his VP candidate.

About Obama: "The presidency is not something that lends itself to 'on the job training'."
About McCain: "I think the country would be better off."

Happy Birthday...

...Keith Moon.
Born on this day in 1943, Keith Moon was arguably the greatest drummer to ever live. Nothing short of a phenom. Moon could single handily make the same sound as three or four separate drummers. If you really want to hear what "Moon The Loon" could do, listen to Won't Get Fooled Again and Behind Blue Eyes. Keith Moon was shining star full of energy that was sadly taken before he should have been. Happy Birthday, Keith Moon. Oh, also, Happy Birthday to me as well.

Pvt. Nathan Z. Thacker had only been in the country for two weeks before his death, according to the soldier's father, Stephen Thacker.

Thacker's father said his son felt a duty to enlist. "He said it was his job. Even after he got his orders that he was going over there, he said it's his job."

Thacker had attended Guy-Perkins High School in Guy, Arkansas. He earned his GED in 2006, his father said. Thacker enlisted in the Army in April 2007 and completed his training at Fort Benning, Ga. He arrived at Fort Drum in August 2007. His honors include the Purple Heart.

"Nathan was an excellent man," sister Sabrina Black said. "He loved me, I loved him, and I’d give anything to have him back."

Pvt. Thacker was killed when an IED was detonated near his vehicle near Kirkuk. Three other soldiers were injured in the attack.

Pvt. Thacker is survived by his parents, siblings and his grandfather.

Uh, Duh

Sen. John McCain calls NBC News biased. No. The home of Kieth Olbermann and Chris Matthews biased? I like this line.
Mitchell reported that some "Obama people" were suggesting "that McCain may not have been in the cone of silence and may have had some ability to overhear what the questions were to Obama. He seemed so well prepared."
Imagine that. Sen. McCain knew his positions and was able to clearly articulate them. It's almost as if he's been doing this for 20+ years.
Last night, Sen's Obama & McCain took part in a Religious Forum. Not sure why, because religion is one of the least important things when running for president. But there's something that Obama said, well, almost said, that has been pointed out.

"I don't think that he was an ex... a..a strong enough..." Good catch, Barack. You almost let that dirty "experience" word slip. So, he doesn't think Thomas had enough experience to sit on the Supreme Court but he has enough to be president himself?

Experience vs Inexperience

Someone breaks into your friends home and kills them. Would you rather have a rookie right out the academy on the case or someone with a few years working crime scenes under their belt?

Troops are called into action. Who would you rather go to battle? Someone who's never shot a gun a day in their life or someone who's had the training and understands the equipment they will be dealing with?

You're in trouble with the IRS. Who do you want handling your situation? Someone right out of High school who took a class in economics or a certified accountant?

In what may be the most dangerous time not only in America, but the world, why would anyone want someone who hasn't even served a full term in the Senate making massively important decisions that will effect everyone as opposed to someone with 20 years of service who actually understands the job before him?

The more I think about what's at stake this November the more I think I may have to vote for McCain. Obama, with his lack of experience, scares the ever loving hell out of me. The fight that we're in is far too important to leave in his hands.

23 years old from West Henrietta, New York
Company C, 70th Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade, 1st Armored Division
March 9, 2005
U.S. Army

Spc. Matthew A. Koch was on his second tour of duty when he was killed by an IED that was detonated near his vehicle in Taji. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. He previously was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, Army Service Ribbon and medals for service in the fight against terrorism.

Koch enlisted in the Army in January 2002 after the attacks on September 11, 2001 and re-enlisted because he wanted to help the Iraqi people. "He was a brave soldier who made the greatest sacrifice anyone could make for everyone else's freedom," Diane Worman, Koch's mother, said through tears. "He realized that by being over there, he was going to make a difference in the lives of those people." She said her son once unsuccessfully sought green cards for an Iraqi family that had been threatened for helping Americans.

"He always looked out for the other guy, never thought of himself. He volunteered to go to C Co before our first deployment so that one of the guys from our Platoon didn't have to deploy early and would have a chance to marry his fiance. That's Koch for you, always looking out for his buddies." - David A. "Buch" Buchanan.

"He really loved the service and went back," said James Worman, Koch's stepfather. "He had no problem. He was dedicated to the fact that people over there needed help. He was always concerned about other people. He loved children. He was a nice, soft-hearted kid."

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Global Warming Hysteria Cooling Down

According to a survey conducted by ABC News, Planet Green? and Stanford University, fewer than half(47%) of Americans still believe the world will die in 10 years. That's down from from 52% last year. According to ABC, this fall is due to the media paying more attention to the election and the economy rather than people actually thinking for themselves instead of swallowing what the news media feeds them.
Only 30 percent of ABC News respondents said they trust what scientists have to say about the environment "completely" or "a lot," with 39 percent saying they trust them "a moderate amount" and 30 percent saying they do not trust them. On top of that, nearly 60 percent of respondents said there is "a lot of disagreement" within the scientific community as to how dangerous climate change is.
Never let it be said that the NY Times isn't thorough. When they make a mistake, which, as we all know, is rare, they are more than willing to correct it. Even if it takes 40+ years.

The Paris Hilton Political Video

We've all seen it. And I'm sure most of us think it's pretty clever. I know I do. But there's some in the media who maybe need to get a clue. I've heard some praise her for the satiric ad. They do realize she had nothing to do with it, right? It's not like she sat down one day after McCain's ad and scripted this thing.
We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars.
Do they honestly think she could come up with something like that? The woman's not smart enough to tie her own shoe.

The Loss Of Imagination

What happens to our imaginations as we get older? They seem to just kind of fade away. I was going down the road today, in the passenger seat, and I caught myself looking up at the clouds. I figured I would try to find shapes like we all did as kids. You know, "that one looks like a horse jumping over a car. Now it looks like a face with a long nose. Now it's a fish with a sword." But, try as I might, I couldn't get anything. I thought I had some kind of face for a second but it didn't really look like anything. As a kid I could sit in my backyard with my plastic dinosaurs, green Army men and Matchbox cars and entertain myself for hours. Were I to try something like that today I would just sit there with a blank look on my face. As a kid, my nephew and I would play a game called Daddy And Doggy. One of us would be a dog and the other would be it's master. Just as simple as that. I guess when you have kids that imagination comes back, somewhat, because it has to. But for the rest of us it's just gone for the most part. Getting older sucks.

The Hard Hitting Stuff

We have an energy crisis in this country and a war against people who want to convert or kill, but there always seems to be time to ask the candidates running for the most important job in the country the questions we're all wondering about.

I hate when they do pieces like this. I don't care what's on their iPod or what their favorite tv show is or what movie make them cry. How are you going to help people unable to pay their bills because they can't afford to buy gas to drive to work? But did anyone notice what Obama and McCain's answers to the stupid questions have in common? They're all popular shows. Nothing that's not on the pop culture radar. No "Big Bang Theory" or "Turner And Hooch", which made me cry. Something tells me, though, that Obama's favorite movie was "The Motorcycle Diaries". It was about his hero after all.

Energy Plan

People are claiming that Congress has went on their month long vacation without doing anything about the energy crisis we have in this country. That's not true. Congress did indeed revel their energy plan.
Stay out of my bedroom, but get into my trash.

The government wants to tell us what we have to listen to with the "Fairness Doctrine", they want to tell us what to eat with banning of trans fat, they want to tell us we can't smoke that we have to wear a seat belt that we have to do this or have to do that and now they want you to make sure you separate every ounce of your garbage or face a $1000 and suspension of your garbage pick up. Looks like Obama is getting his wish. America is looking more and more like Europe every day.

Weather Vane Politics

John Kerry was the best example of weather vane politics and now it's Obama's turn. McCain did it and Obama is following his lead. And don't think for a second they're doing it because they believe it's the right thing to do. If that were the case they'd been on board all along. They're doing it because the polls tell them it's the smart move. I only have two questions. 1) When will Obama finally admit that the surge has worked and 2) When will Bush, and the rest of Congress, become a weather vane when it comes to the border? This form of neo-slavery that's happening now isn't working.
