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…)

I’m Drawing a Line in the Sand

April 16, 2009

First, let me say, I am a native born Texan, so using such an euphemism is ingrained into my DNA and apropos. I was born and raised in Abilene out in West Texas (yeah, it’s actually a separate place–especially in state-of-mind), it’s a big, little town, home to oil and ranching, cotton farming and vineyards, and friendly-to-the-extreme, God-fearin’, hard workin’, honest, my word-is-my-bond and my handshake-is-my-signature folks. It’s a huge place out there where you can drive thirty miles on a US highwayand meet one car (only) in the middle of the day; where if you come up behind a farmer/rancher driving a little slower than the posted 70 mph speed limit and certainly slower than your interpretation of that same limit, which is probably closer to 80 mph, he’ll pull onto the shoulder so you can pass safely without having to change lanes into the on-coming traffic; where we spend most of Sunday in church no matter what denomination or faith you are and we take high school football as a second religion. It’s also a place where the term Yankee isn’t meant to refer to a NY baseball team, it’s a term for someone from “up North” and someone we have a hard time understanding (not just in language) but how they think and live; so sometimes it’s a derisive term, but mostly it’s just a description. The old joke in Texas is that a Yankee is someone that lives up North, a damn Yankee is a person that comes from up North to visit, and a G-damn Yankee is someone from up north that comes down to Texas and STAYS!  BTW (in full disclosure), I’m married to one of those and she’s a real nice lady, and fortunately has lived in Texas for over 20 years so has been naturalized as a Texas citizen.

Now, all that said, I’m also an American. I served my country in the US Navy riding a submarine and have lived in many of states through my Navy days and since. Since, 9/11, I tear up and get a lump in my throat EVERY time I hear the National Anthem, and would have gladly served again in the military after if they’d had me (too old now). And what’s going on in this country right now tears my loyalties. I cannot speak to all Texans’, West or the remainder of the state (about half), politics; I can only speak to mine and y’all know what that is–just so you know, yesterday DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano confirmed (stood by the Departments assessment) that I am a frakkin’ right-wing extremist radical inclined to become a violent militia member because I am anti-abortion, anti-illegal immigration, anti-massive government and socialist spending and any number of other criteria that was listed in the assessment.

So, to the three extremist issues that are burning up the blogs (more…)

Get out your OSBS Filters

March 27, 2009

I am a sales guy from west Texas, so I can filter bull shit when I hear it, especially when Dear Leader, His Royal Obamaness, says things like, “Our economy only works if we recognize that we’re all in this together, that we all have responsibilities to each other and to our country,” and “We’ll recover from this recession, but it will take time, it will take patience, and it will take an understanding that, when we all work together, when each of us looks beyond our own short-term interest to a wider set of obligations we have towards each other, that’s when we succeed, that’s when we prosper, and that’s what we need right now.”

Fred Barnes at the Weekly Standard calls it “pablum”, I call it Obama Socialist Bull Shit (OSBS) and requires that we don our OSBS Filters to hear the truth. Pablum is defined at Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary as, 2: intellectual sustenance, 3: something (as writing or speech) that is insipid, simplistic, or bland. It is neither “intellectual sustenance” nor “insipid, simplistic, or bland”, well, it may be delivered as the latter, but in reality it’s HRO’s way of making you think his socialist engineering and policies are achieving the successful accomplishment we want during the economic crisis. All he is really saying is that the socialist and marxist tenets that he was taught all of his life, and that he believes in, can be passed along through congressional law making and passing of his absurd and mammoth budget (that will add a trillion dollars a year to the national debt for the next ten years) without you and I, the American Taxpayers, knowing what’s happening until it’s done and too late.

So maybe this “pablum” will nurture those Obamatrons, the FarLEFT and the stupid idiots (is that redundant?) that still get a thrill down their legs at his very presence and appearance, but for me I’m donning my OSBS filter and listening straight to his line of crap, knowing that he means to continue his destruction of the American Way; our Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness; and the business model of personal responsibility and entrepreneurial capitalism that has served, grown and prospered in this country so well for over two and a quarter centuries. What he wants is the U.S.S.A., the United Socialist States of America, and he won’t stop the “pablum” for the masses until he gets it.

Pablum
The language of Obamanomics.

 President Obama insists he’s a free-market guy. But you have to wonder whether he understands how a free economy really works. His policies and his words–especially what he said at his press conference this week–suggest his sense of what makes economies grow and how people are affected by government policies is surprisingly weak.

Some of what Obama says is just pablum and isn’t supposed to be taken as serious economic thought. At least I hope not. Rather, it might be called economic morale-boosting. Nothing wrong with that, unless he actually believes what he’s saying.

 He said at his press conference, for example, (more…)

The Final Nail in the Death of America’s Business and Industry

March 19, 2009

His Royal Obamaness, The ONE, the Left’s Messiah, Dear Leader has the final nail all cued-up to be driven home to kill the United States’ capatalist-based business and industry, ensuring the path to socialism in complete, not only through Union-controlled wages stipulated in the Stimulus Bill, but with upcoming EPA controlled, Tax & Trade Plan.

The Paprazzi President Obama has so increased the deficit with the Spendulus and the OmniBS Bills to the point that the only way out, within the next two years, will be to hyperinflate the economy with a tremendous flood–a tsunami, if you will–of  paper money backed by nothing. Stalin said (I’m paraphrasing) the fastest way to institute socialism was to kill an economy and make money worthless, and Chairman Obama, the Dear Leader is going to do just that, but first he must reduce the GDP and tax base with Cap & Trade to fight the Global Warming Hoax, rebranded the Climate Crisis by the Goracle, Al Gore, The Green ONE.

Between Queen Pelosi’s wanting to flood the workforce, and as a by-product so enlarge the Demon-crats voting base that Conservatism will never regain a foothold in national politics, with automatically newly-minted immigrants through Illegal Aliens Amnesty (the conversion would instantly create at least 12-15 Million Democrats) with help of ACORN’s control of the census, and HRO’s Cap & Trade Tax, unemployment will be so deep that we’ll never recover enough taxes to overcome all the new spending deficit.

The $2 Trillion Cap & Trade Tax/Program will drive America’s industrial manufacturing complex off-shore, so that those of us unemployed today from the high-tech community, especially the Semiconductor and Printed Circuit Board industries, will never see a job again and our ranks will swell with millions more. This belief that a responsible business manager or owner will suck it up and play this game to continue building a business in the states is a ludicrous crack pipe-dream. (more…)

I Love Mark Steyn, an Update on OSD2

March 6, 2009

Just a little update from my Post Yesterday. It looks like Mark Steyn, whom I love immensely, thinks along the same lines as I do, that HRO is determined to destroy America’s economy in order to bring about his designs on the perfect Euro-topia, the USSA (United Socialist States of America).

NOTE: Look at the tanking of the DOW the last two days after the brief 100+ blip on Wednesday (after 5 consecutive days of going down) as Obama continues to lay out his plans and policies. With every opening of his golden mouth (even though he continues to say that nothing his administration or his words have any effect on the market) it drops again (yesterday after the Health Care plan) and again (early on it was down 109 , but came back up to a whopping +32.50 after his speech in Ohio this morning) AND he hasn’t even gotten to instituting Cap & Trade yet–imagine what that will do to the DOW Industrials since he plans to completely destroy business and companies to fight the Anthropogenic Global Warming Hoax.

From the NRO Corner Blog:

Not a Bug but a Feature   [Mark Steyn]

In The Wall Street Journal, Michael Boskin writes:

Mr. Obama’s $3.6 trillion budget blueprint, by his own admission, redefines the role of government in our economy and society. The budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, adding more to the debt than all previous presidents — from George Washington to George W. Bush — combined. It reduces defense spending to a level not sustained since the dangerous days before World War II, while increasing nondefense spending (relative to GDP) to the highest level in U.S. history. And it would raise taxes to historically high levels (again, relative to GDP). And all of this before addressing the impending explosion in Social Security and Medicare costs.

What emerges from such a blueprint will not be America. The United States will survive as a geographical designation, a collection of zip codes, but what goes on within them will be a Euro-Canadian form of societal arrangement (I write more on this in the new NR, out today, I do believe).

If you’re David Brooks or Christopher Buckley, you’re baffled at what your sensible moderate bipartisan economic centrist president is doing. If your objective is to “stimulate” the economy, why would you do this stuff?

But, if your objective is fundamentally to transform the relationship between the citizen and the state, it all makes perfect sense. On the radio yesterday, Mark Larson asked me about all this and I replied:

As Rahm Emanuel says, he has essentially to use the crisis as an opportunity. And that’s what it’s about. I think that the plummeting Dow actually serves his purpose… My worry is, though, that when you look at the riots that have been happening in Bulgaria and Greece and Iceland and other places, is that when people turn against the government, it’s usually because they’re banging on the door of parliament saying why don’t you guys do more for me? In other words, they’re saying a $3.7 trillion dollar package isn’t enough, we need a $20 trillion dollar package. So I’m a bit worried that when this public dissatisfaction with Obama starts, a big chunk of it will be from people who are actually demanding even bigger and even more Europeanized solutions to these things.

Obama’s priority is not the restoration of the economy but, as he says, the “remaking of America.” If you take him at his word, his indifference to the Dow makes perfect sense.
