I Love Jack Hawkins — Conservatism is Dead (?)

April 21, 2009

Well, let’s take stock, shall we, conservatives are Right-wing extremist radicals inclined to join militias per His Royal Obamaness’ Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Janny Nappy, and most recently because we got our backs up at Congress and The One over the spendulous, omniBS and Buggerit Bills, rebuild a greater and more socialist government and country (U.S.S.A), but mistakenly mislabeled the whole thing “Tea Parties” (ooh, you ignorant knuckle-draggers, don’t you know that the Boston Tea Party was about Taxation without representation–you’re represented and, gosh, you’re getting $400 whole dollars rebate–gee, how ungrateful can you be?), we’re now racist because the whole “Tax Day Revolution” was about southern KKK tea-baggin’ racist scum! Just ask the Olbermanniac and JG, the wonder lez.

Anyway, I digress, Jack has determined that this, our cause, is all to no avail, and sites the MSM, Demoncrats, TheLEFT, BHO, the Obamafascists, and assundry “mainstream” Republicans (a.k.a. RINOs) like Meghan McCain (who put her in charge, anyway?) & her father, along with of the Elite Republican commenters; we,  conservatives, are dead as a political influence.  We just haven’t dug the grave and held the wake yet, but we might as well have.

So, please read  Jack’s obituary for us:

The Top Ten Reasons Conservatism is Dead as Disco!
John Hawkins
Tuesday, April 21, 2009

First of all, I know this column isn’t going to be popular with all the mouth breathing, troglodytic, primitive dittoheads out there. But, facts are facts: conservatives are NEVER, EVER, EVER going to get back into power again.

The mainstream media says so, legendary conservative icons like David Frum, Meghan McCain, and David Brooks say so — and, yes, Democrats in Congress who we should remember soundly beat us in November, say so.

So, I think it’s time to point out what even completely unbiased political luminaries like Chuck Schumer and Keith Olbermann have been saying since Barack Obama was elected: conservatism is done, over with, as finished as warm days in the middle of December!

1) Sure, America’s political history has been one long churning political cycle with both party’s fortunes going up and down, but that’s not going to happen this time! This time, the Republicans aren’t going to learn anything from losing, conservatives aren’t going to be inspired to take action by being out of power, and the Democrats aren’t going to get even more complacent and corrupt as they enjoy the rewards of being in power. Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are just too smart, too sharp, and too doggone perfect to allow that to happen!

2) Conservatives are fighting with each other too much (more…)

Dealing with Crapweasels and other Worthless Beings

March 29, 2009

I found The Other McCain via RightWingNews.com and found that someone has finally gone to dirt with these supposed conservatives that made our last election about Democrats & Demon-crat-Lite, by hoisting, with the help of Indies (can somoen pleeeease tell me why Republicans allow “Independents” to vote in our frakking Primaries), John L McCain, the Left and MSM’s favorite RINO.

Robert Stacy McCain’s post details both the definition of a “Crapweasel”, crapweasel1

the “Ransom-Note Method”  and the Twelfth Commandment of Conservatism.

It’s a long piece, but worth the read, enjoy.

Thoughts on the ‘Ransom-Note Method’ and the Twelfth Commandment

Ed Driscoll says he doesn’t know whether it was me or Kathy Shaidle who coined the term “Ransom-Note Method” to describe the way the Left uses selective quotation to smear its targets.

It was me, but with a caveat: The Ransom-Note Method was actually first labeled such by another one of its victims, a friend of mine who hasn’t claimed credit for the coinage and whose name I therefore can’t reveal.

The term derives from the way the smear merchants typically assemble their smears by quoting a phrase here, two words there, and two sentences from something else, and then gluing it together with their own perjorative interpolations and a bit of guilt-by-association, much like a kidnapper cutting out words from a magazine to paste together a ransom note.

This was how Rush Limbaugh’s “I want him to fail” remark became such a scandalous thing. As Jeff Goldstein has pointed out, if you read Limbaugh’s remarks in context — I actually heard the whole monologue as Rush did it live on the radio — it is very clear the point he was making:

Obama is trying to implement a liberal agenda. I am not a liberal, and I think liberalism is bad for the country. Therefore, I hope Obama fails in his attempt to implement it.

The only thing really “controversial” in Rush’s monologue is the belief that liberalism is a bad thing, which is something (more…)

Just a Little Something to Raise your BP this Morning

February 13, 2009

The Bill was Posted for review last night around 11PM EST–giving only about 10 hours for Senators & Congress to read before voting. Here’s a couple of items to help you understand that we need to BOHICA!

Congressional Offices Don’t Have the Stimulus Bill, Lobbyists Do

HURRY, FELLAS, LET’S VOTE, I AM OFF TO ROME!

Democratic Senator Predicts None of His Colleagues ‘Will Have the Chance’ to Read Final Stimulus Bill Before Vote

SURPRISE! Dems Break Promise: Stimulus Bill to Floor Friday

If you want to get a feel how the folks to the left supporting this bill regurgitate the line from the ONE, go back to yesterday’s post and read the comments from James. He tried to convert me, but it’s all 1936 Keynesian Economics BS.

BTW, why are we using 1936 Economics that didn’t work for FDR (by his own Sec’y of the Treasury’s admission in his diary) in 2009 ?

I will add more throughout the day to ensure that we keep that Blood Pressure up–just think of the endorphins that are being released.

Have a great Day!

UPDATE:   Well we knew it would happen, but I have one question: How can it be legal to require the House Representatives to vote on 1000+ Page bill that was released in the middle of the night before the vote–giving virtually No One a chance to read and discuss the bill????

  House passes Obama’s economic stimulus bill

UPDATE II:  Guess what, they just posted the bill for “Public Review”, they also have a place for Comments. Add yours and see if it gets posted.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

 

UPDATE III:  A friend points out that the links to the Bill DO NOT WORK! I’ve tried numerous engines, but no go. I guess we’re not going to see it until after the Senate Votes! Any bets?

Tell me what IT (the Spendulus Bill) does for the People

February 12, 2009

You’ve probably gathered (by now), I’m not a Econo-geek, Policy Wonk or Demon-Crat, so I’m at a loss as to what I am to expect from the 2009 Stimulus Bill that is being prepared to Pass both the Senate and the House voting today or tomorrow, so that The One, HRO (His Royal Obamaness), the Savior can sign the Bill on President’s Day, Monday.

What I am is a techno-mechanic sales guy; someone that came to an interest in politics very late and having to work through and read a lot of nonsense and BS to try to make up for my lackadaisical attitude toward what impacted my life the first 46 years.

I had my Republican Epiphany in ’78 (during TWO’s–the Worthless One’s=Carter–regime) while in the Navy serving on a submarine out of Norfolk (which at the time was in VA, whose slogan then was “Welcome to VEPCO (the utility co back then), formerly know as Virginia). It was then that during a cruise ( I was on a fast attack boat so we went out for undetermined amounts of time, “boomers”–the ballistic missle subs– had the luxury of 100 day rotations) that I was bored enough (and after I had finished my qualifications) to look hard at my paycheck and realized that the amount of taxes I paid during the year actually paid my own salary for 4 months since I was employed by the government–so I was working for free for 4 months!  That realization was enough for me to change from being an Independent to a Republican. At that moment in time I had only voted once, for the the guy I thought was the best choice and because (primarily) the Doobie Brothers backed him–yep, I hoisted myself on my own petard–Carter. I also considered myself a liberal kind of guy becasue I grew up and came of age in the 60s and early 70s; but with age comes contemplation and I realize now I was always a conservative, even back with long hair and rock-n-roll, disgusted with all things political and the “man”. I never blamed the soldiers (I had a number of friends that served, and 3 that never made it home) in ‘Nam for anything, in fact, the only protest I participated in was the day of the Kent State “Masacre”–we walked out of class as the news spread and prayed at the flagpole for “our” fallen. Not silly, even now (of course, you couldn’t pray on school grounds now), that we did that, but other than that I took part in nothing else regarding that turmoil and tumultuos times.

But I’ve digressed, I am no longer a neophyte to the crap that all politicians–Repubs, RINOs, Demo & Demon-crats, even Indpendents or whatever else– say and do to get in and keep office. 9/11 changed me further–it made me pay attention, and after those terrible days, I kept paying attention. So now, I am not an innocent to what things they put forth will or won’t affect my life and livelihood. I have learned, especially since 9/11, what these assholes in Congress, the Senate and the Presidency, as well as the Cabinet, Justice, State and Judicial branch “employees” all want to do–stay alive in politics!

They don’t care how they get or keep their position; they don’t care about me or you; they only care for the power that “we” give them; but then, they want to keep and hold that power until they die, and in some cases treat as a legacy to pass on to their progeny, surrogates and wards. So in my infinite political wisdom (sarc) I’ve garnered in the last seven years, I realized all the above, but as well, that no one but myself is ever going to do anything for this 54 (almost) year old, white, Baptist, middle-class background and current (until I became unemployed) “social”standing, “Conservi-can” male. Actually, I determined that in ’78, but in the last seven years I’ve had to rely on others to keep me save from those that would destroy us. Now, today, I have to worry about those within my government that would destroy us from the inside with their “Spendulus Bill”.

I spent the early morning hours today reading various articles that explain what’s happening and going to happen with this Bill much better than I can. I’m going to list these 4 most direct and informative of those I’ve read in the last week for you to read as trying to post effective parts or paragraphs would taken even more room than I’ve taken already. So, I leave it up to you to read and digest for yourselves what is being done to us by these political animals who know better than experts or those unwashed masses (us) what is good for the country. From everything I read (with my logical approach to understanding being the techno-mechanical guy–see above), this payoff/spendulus/pork-ridden/government expansion Bill, will do nothing for anyone except themselves (those that are passing this thing) and construction (light or heavy), union and munifedgov (municipal & federal government employees) folks. There is nothing in this bill to stimulate what the majority of us out in the real world do for a living–private sector/consumer jobs. There is nothing to drive the technology or give us any way to drive the consumer spending in this bill, other than $13 a week more in our paychecks! Man, now that’s a “tax-cut”! They were afraid we’d pay bills or save the $400 or $800 (single or married) if they sent a check–so they’re going to just ctu the taxes a few dollars. Great! Yahooo! Yippee! The rest of the bill is nothing more than Demon-crat spending to those who brung them to the dance! So, what does it do for the rest of us? Nothing! They even cut the things for those of us that are unemployed–help with COBRA health payments and extension or increase in benefits.

It is too late to hope that the Tri-RINOs (Specter, Snow & Collins) have enough heart and soul to VOTE NO, we know they won’t. We can only watch and wait to see exactly what will happen as the Bill is paid out–we can’t even see where the money’s really going go until the thing is signed!

Let me know if any of the few of you that’ll read this can explain it better than the four I’m suggesting that you read or if you can explain how this is going to benefit me, mine and you in the near future, or the far future, for that matter.

Thanks, I’ll look forward to your input; here’s the list:

Do You REALLY Know what this Bill means?

February 10, 2009

Holy Crap!  I don’t even know where to start this!

Let me try this, The Democrats are doing what we’ve fought against forever–they’re getting their Socialized Health Care through the Back Door of the Stimulus Bill.

Buried deep in the hard-to-read Bill, of course intentially, is the Nationalization – and rationing – of health care is in the stimulus bill!Betsy McCaughy of Bloomberg has brought the alert out yesterday.

The bill’s health rules will affect “every individual in the United States” (445, 454, 479). Your medical treatments will be tracked electronically by a federal system. Having electronic medical records at your fingertips, easily transferred to a hospital, is beneficial. It will help avoid duplicate tests and errors.

But the bill goes further. One new bureaucracy, the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology, will monitor treatments to make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost effective. The goal is to reduce costs and “guide” your doctor’s decisions (442, 446). These provisions in the stimulus bill are virtually identical to what Daschle prescribed in his 2008 book, “Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.” According to Daschle, doctors have to give up autonomy and “learn to operate less like solo practitioners.”

Keeping doctors informed of the newest medical findings is important, but enforcing uniformity goes too far.

So, folks, if you’re a “boomer” or older, you’re going die a whole sooner than you were just weeks ago. GOT IT?! If you have health issues, diabetes, high blood pressure, degenerative bone or muscle disease, you smoke, eat meat, drink too much, you are going to be shit-out-of-luck, sorry no sugar coating, cutesie-wutesie spelling–plain and simple–We Are Screwed!

They are taking this one step further than even the Canadian Health Care System or Euro-Social Health Care, etc.–they are grading your life automatically via electronic records that the “state” will look at, as this Program does.  They are going to electronically input your health data, then electronically sort the data and give you a Health Grade, this in turn will determine where you will be in line for your needs or issues. If your Grade is low, then you wait, if it’s high (you’re 30, run 5 miles a day, don’t smoke, a vegan and  only drink recycled pee-water in a refillable bio-degradable bottle), then you go to the front of the line.

Now, we won’t have the opportunity the rest of the world that have similar free or socialized medicine/health care have today, which is to come to the U.S. to get the Health care when they can’t get it at home. They won’t come here anymore AND we won’t have anywhere to go.

The Democratic Cowards know that this would not pass stand alone as a Program Bill so they stuck in the Stimulus Bill hoping no one would notice.

I sent out Ten eMails to Senators (including Snowe & Collins, the RINOS that are helping to pass this bill along with Specter) last night about this, you should do the same to your Senators, your Congress reps and everyone that will listen. Here is the Senate member Link:  Senate Home,  just either select your state or the Senator’s name you want to contact.  Do it NOW!

Even FoxNews is talking about it now & Drudge had it this morning (it wasn’t there last evening).

Read the Bloomberg article and stop this Bill–it is not in our best or healthy interest–it certainly isn’t stimulus!

UPDATE:Arlen Specter (Rino, PA) was just on FNC with Megan Kelley and clarilied–yes, clari-LIED, his way through the segment and said he’d not take back his commitment to vote for the Bill! He tried to say that he wouldn’t let it “broaden” any further, but that means he’s okay with how it reads now!  He’s a Lying-Sack-of-Shit RINO bastard. Contact your Senators, including Snowe & Collins–I said in my eMail last night that Specer was worthless, and he’s just confirmed it if you didn’t know it before. As Worf would say, ‘He’s a waste of Skin.’

UPDATE 2:FoxNews followed up (fair & balanced, ya’know) with  Sen. John Tester(Demon-crat, MT) used words like: “If” , “I’m not sure”, & “I think”–finally, “If it’s in there, we’ll get it out, but it should take us to 21st century health care.” AND, “It’s putting people back to work.” Holy Crap (again)! Geez, folks they’re voting for this in an hour & a half at 11AM CST!   BTW, I just took my BP which is usually considered normal/good at around 120/80–it was 142/90–guess I’m doomed under this bill!

FINAL UPDATE:Well, it passed with  the same vote count it passed Cloture yesterday, 61-37. The RINOS did it, they sold our souls down the river.  So, now it passes to the conferences to redraft the bill with the House, which means it will be bigger and those things taken out by the RINO negotiations will go back in. $838Billion will probably go back and over $900B.

Welcome to Socialism, folks, I hope those that wanted it enjoy it and those of us that didn’t know that we must stand up and fight anyway we can to stop what has been passed. Do not agree to allowing your life to be controlled by the  “State”.

Stimulus Deal? So, where’s MY job?

February 8, 2009

Those that know me well, and maybe some of those other few that stop in here to read, know that I was laid off the last week of December; primarily due to the economic crisis, and specifically, the absolute dying of consumer and DOD electronics orders.

I’m a technical sales guy. I have sold everything from ion-implanters (used in the process of semiconductor chips manufacturing) to Heating and Air Conditioning; from CAD equipment to printed circuit boards, and then driller/routers in the printed circuit board manufacturing industry to dry ice blasters for non-destructive industrial cleaning. So, if you notice, they’re all driven by consumer needs or requirements.

Now, from one minute to the next I cannot tell you what’s in or what’s out of the Stimulus Bill that the Senate RINOs (Snow/Collins/Spectre, oops, Specter) caved into Reid for a piece of the pie and seems to be poised to pass on Tuesday. There is a tiny tax cut for businesses that hopefully will encourage expansion and hiring. There is going to be “tax cuts” in the form of money/checks to “taxpayers”, and maybe that will drive a revitalization of consumer wants & desires.

The majority of the bill is spending on Democrat-favored pork, they’re earmarks (even though the Democrats refuse to call it that) programs and social engineering.

Oh sure, there are the shovel-ready projects like water slides, frisbee golf courses, dog parks that might produce jobs (what, those three need around 20 folks–ooh, wow, sign me up). Then there are the infrastructure rebuilding and planning that should produce jobs, but those will be subcontracted out to companies that specialize in that type of work who already have employees. Maybe not enough, so perhaps that will create a 10-20% increase in employment at dirt cheap wages, unless you’re a heavy machinery operator (perhaps I should be going to one of those tranining schools; although, if I can drive a submarine–which I’ve done–then how hard can a bulldozer be?).

All the other spending is programs that will NOT create jobs–STD Prevention & Education programs (I hear it’s in, then it’s out; but I’m with Sean Hannity, you wouldn’t need this item at all if you QUIT having sex with strangers!); money to the National Endowment for the Arts (hey, I write, give me me some of that); BILLIONS are going to (are you ready) ACORN! (Well, I guess it does take money to rig elections and pay voters to vote 10-30 times.) There’s hundreds of millions to billions of dollars for research and investigation of non-existent Anthropogenic (man-made) Global Warming or Climate Change, as the Goracle is trying to re-brand it as more and more actual planetary/geologic/environmental scientist are coming out exposing the hoax. More Millions will be sent to left-winged National Public(?) Radio; and  hundreds of  billions and billions to things we don’t even know about.  Billions to do away with oil production and invest in pie-in-the-sky environmentally-friendly energy that will do nothing, again in the short term, but raise our energy costs. But, tell me how many jobs are going to be created with this specific spending?

The spending is supposed to and is directed to stimulate the economy in the short term. The shovel-ready and infrastructure projects won’t even start this year for the most part, and in most cases not before 2010! The social projects/programs will create little if no private sector jobs, if a few are created they will be governement jobs–growing the government again–and how do you get those jobs?

And I have a problem with the Republican plans as well–they’re harping on fixing the Housing and Automobile debacles! ‘They’re what started this mess.’ They want to bail out the folks under the threat of  foreclosure (now, I can sympathise with them, but my understanding was that was part of the November TARP bailout); and give tax credits to folks that buy homes and cars? I’m out of work, trying to manage living expenses and stay in my rental home on the paltry sum of $1512 a month from unemployment insurance. The last thing I am planning on doing in the near foreseeable future is buy a house or new car! And the one thing in the bill I thought I could use was helping pay COBRA health insurance and the damn Republicans cut that out! Geez!

I’d prefer to make a living writing. I mean, I have four complete novels finished (about a total of 1300 pages ready for print), a fantasy trilogy and a espionage/terrorist novel, but I can’t find an agent or a publisher. I’m a neophyte and trying to weed through the minutia and break into the clique to get published is nearly impossible without help from someone inside. I have another eleven novels to write in the fantasy series, four more with my new recurring intelligence character and then one or two others. These are all working in my head, but I have no way to get them out while trying to find a job consuming my life right now, but if I was published, then I could; wait, that’s the Catch-22, isn’t it. Oh well.

So, my question is this, of the 825 Billion to 1 Trillion (after it goes back through Congress and Pelosi adds back in what the Senate stripped out) spending and tax cuts where is my job? Although, I’m not abject to physical labor, those construction jobs will go to others before I get in line as there really won’t be that many jobs created and they’ll be going to base line pay grades. I’m a technical guy, I carried a electronics’ field engineering toolkit before I moved into sales some 20+ years ago, so my technical troubleshooting expertise is far out of state-of-the-art.

I know I will find a job, I always do, but with this economic malaise/crisis/atmosphere it will probably be a while. My point in being so honest and forthcoming here in this post is to articulate what most of us that are unemployed are feeling right now. The Stimulus does NOTHING to create enough jobs to make a difference, nor does it Stimulate the economy to create the jobs needed. It rewards those that the Democrats favor and got Obama elected, it rewards those that already screwed up or failed their customers in business, and rewards those that want the government to take over their lives and ensure that they continue their free ride on the government dole.

I stated this in my last post, Obama has failed and is ignoring or denying it–this is not a win for America and the people know it. The President is, in fact, ignoring the Polls that show there is less than 40% in favor of the bill, but Onama/Pelosi/Reid always state that the Majority of Americans are in favor–I guess they can’t read. Hey, that would explain why they don’t pay their taxes; that and they know where that money goes–so why pay them if it’s just getting flushed along with the other crap that they put out.

The Emperor’s Socialist Mandate

February 1, 2009

Obama’s decisive wining of the Presidency (Obama/Biden 52.9% (365 EC)  69,456,897 PV;  McCain/Palin45.6% (173 EC) 59,934,814 PV) evidently and ultimately meant that the Left has carte blanche to act however, and say, do and pass whatever they have wished for since the 1960s. In fact, both Obama & Pelosi have stated that  “I/We Won!” The juvenile “nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah, nyah” & raspberries are implied,  just silent but evident in their attitude.

So, they’re “Shocked. I tell you! Shocked! That…”  the Republicans & Conservatives didn’t shut up and go home for the next four years; and also that Rush Limbaugh told Sean Hannity that he wants Obama to fail…(now, that’s where the Left quit listening and jumped both feet into the manure pile) he clarified that he wanted Obama’s liberal/socialist policies & agenda to fail. This is exactly what I was hammered with as well on Election Night and Inauguration Day, but from the other side–my side–for saying that I/We had to support Obama and ensure he doesn’t fail as it would take the country with him, BUT (and maybe I didn’t articulate this well enough), I did not mean I wanted the Right to rollover and let Obama/Reid/Pelosi pass anything or everything they wanted to turn the U.S. into a Euro/Socialist country. I’m exactly with Rush on this–I want the U.S. to succeed, but not at the hands of the Left categorically and fundamentally changing the United States–in that, I want Obama to fail.

SO, the Emperor’s Mandate is just as the clothes in the fable–it’s invisible. Yessir, he won decisively by 7.3% in the popular vote, but the Left looks at the Electoral College landslide incorrectly, and obviously, thinking that all those folks in the states that went Obama are now converts to the One–they aren’t, they’re pissed like me.

Obama’s mandate does NOT mean that the Left can finally FIX all those things that are wrong  in the Country (in their eyes) in one fell swoop by passing the Wish List of the last 40 years under the auspices and cover of the $819 Billion (or $1.2 Trillion with interest) Stimulus Bill.  100s of millions to STD Research & Education, the NEA (Nat’l Endowment for the Arts) and other social items, and billions(!) to pay off ACORN. Less than 25% is actual emergency stimulus to get the economy moving NOW, and more than half of that won’t even happen until 2010, 11, & 12, if not later. This isn’t even the WPA (a’la FDR) infrastructure work programs that we feared they would cram down our throats.

How can they be shocked that as we, the American people,  learn more of what items are in the bill that do nothing to put money and jobs into the economy; and with each passing day the polling indicates fewer and fewer Americans favor the bill as it stands or came out of Congress? 

Does the Left understand this is Obama’s first failure? Nope, not yet.  

Sure, there will be the RINO Senators that will work as “bi-partisan” agents with Obama & Reid. Hopefully, the Senate Republicans will dust off their cojones, as did the Congressional Republicans along with 11 Democrats, and either filibuster or cull out the earmarks, social engineering and graft/payoffs before this abomination gets put in place.

The Triumviri–President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid–must realize that 46% of the American people did not vote for their “mandate”, they voted to prevent it; and to tell these folks “not to listen to Rush Limbaugh” will only ensure that Rush picks up more listeners. And more listeners means more voters willing to hear what needs to be done and then doing it by contacting their representatives and letting them know that the American people are actually going to  listen to what the Senate is doing.
