You know what really burns my rear (other than a flame about 3 ft tall) sorry could not help myself, and what the hell it is my blog. Anyway; what really burns me is how Mr. Obama can stand up and give a great speech in Arizona and absolutely no one on the left listens.

Yes that is correct I did give some credit to the President, but you have to give credit where credit is due, do I believe he meant it. No, I do not, I did, when he spoke I was impressed but the very next day members of his party were right back at it, attacking conservatives and trying to shut them up. Ask yourself this question, why are they so afraid of people like Rush Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity, Glenn Beck and Sara Palin. We hear all the time from the left how stupid they are how irrelevant they are, after all they are not real journalists like Bill Maher, sorry couldn’t help myself.

Anyway my point is if they are so irrelevant then why not ignore them? You know like NPR, PBR, ABC, CNN and CSNBC are ignored. Sorry went there again didn’t I. well if the polls are any indication of the truth then FOX NEWS is clearly reaching more people, that’s what really scares them, and since the numbers continue to grow then we have to assume that mainstream America is moving more to the right of center, well that’s not true, we have always been a right of center country, the difference is now we are ignoring the 15% minority that always screams the loudest, or as I like to refer to them as the wacked out minority, but that’s just me.

So getting back to where I started before I started to ramble, those of you who know me will understand. The president gave a great speech, he said things like “we need more civility in our discourse” “as a country it is a time to heal” “this was the act of a single deranged person”, I may have paraphrased there a little but you get the idea, and the point of it all is this, it was not 24 hours before left wing nut jobs, some of them elected officials, came out and started throwing bombs at all their favorite targets. One Democratic Leader compared Republicans to the Nazi Party; the message was we are lying to the American people much the way Nazi’s lied about Jew’s, laying the ground work for the holocaust. Really, I mean really. You want to take a wild shot at how many in the mainstream media called him out on that, you got it zero.

This one is kind of sad; one of the Tucson Az. Victims, a 62 year old man who was shot in the leg, with a history of lift wing bomb throwing, after being released from the hospital was, of course, swarmed over by the left wing media, and held up as an example of the great liberal America, was arrested and committed for mental health evaluation after attending an ABC sponsored event, also at the event was a Sr. Tea Party organizer, he held up a picture of the gentleman and told him he is “dead”, civil enough for you. Oh but that’s not all, in a prior interview he made the statement, and I am paraphrasing again, he would like to make necklaces of I believe it was Sara Palin’s, Rush Limbaugh’s, and Dick Cheney’s ears.

Wow that is one tolerant man, the point is you may be hearing this for the first time, because ABC did not report on it, even though it was an event sponsored by them, as a matter of fact no one, with the exception of FOX NEWS, and the Washington Post reported on the story, gee I wonder why. Ask yourself this, if Sara Palin would have given an interview with some small town news agency in Alaska and said something like, oh I don’t know, the only good Liberal progressive is a dead liberal progressive, my sentiment not hers. How many news agencies do you think would run it as a lead story? My guess all of them.

I have rambled on and on just to get to this point, where is the Great Unite’r in all this, why is Mr. Obama not making clear to his party that he wants more civil discourse in day to day politics, and don’t kid yourself if he says it, it will happen, the truth is he did not mean a damn word of what he said in Arizona, he wants the right demonized, why you ask, because it is not about what is good for America, it is about winning in 2012, and keeping power, and it is not unique to the Dem’s but it really is about money and power, and as long as the American people stand for it, it will continue. You want more civil discourse? Then demand it, turn away from left and right bomb throwers, we need to demand that issues are debated and turn away from the intentional distracters. That is how everyone wins. Truth will set you free.

Never Waste an Opportunity

Over the last weekend some deranged sociopath goes on a shooting spree, I am sure everyone by now knows everything about it and the crazy person that perpetrated it. “Since it has been in the news just a little”, you would have to be way out of touch to have not heard about it. Well low and behold, the victims are not even buried yet and the left wing “Destroy America Machine” is in high gear. It would seem the mainstream media has worn out the blame Bush rhetoric, so they are now targeting Palin. Wow, I am shocked.
From all the reports I have heard this guy was his own kind of whack job, his favorite book listed on his my space account was the communist manifesto, don’t think that makes him very conservative, but on the other hand he apparently had no trust in the government, didn’t want open borders, and was mad about people in his district for not being well educated, not sure where he was going with that. The point I am trying to make is this guy was just what he is, a very deranged person. And really back when Sara Palin used bull’s-eyes to identify the democratic seats that were being targeted did anyone really look at that and say, “Look she is advocating violence”. If they did I would submit to you that they were also a little off.
Here is what angers me the most about this whole tragedy, six people have lost their lives, one of them an innocent nine year old girl, and the New York Times is professing a link between Tea Party members, and conservatives in general, that fail to support the current administration with not only advocating violence, but insinuating that conservatives have incited the events that have occurred. I say again Wow, how low you can get, this is despicable and if you don’t see it you are blind, this is not reporting the news this is pushing an agenda. It’s almost like some deranged person saying “man this is horrible; lucky for us we can use it”.
Whatever happened to honest and vigorous debate in our country, it is after all what the founding fathers intended. That is why we have a two party system, because it allows for compromise and the benefactors of that are generally the American people. And that’s good. So when did we become so one sighted that we see every tragedy as an opportunity to push forward our agenda. Please could we just morn for the lives of those lost, could we first grieve before we blame.

Grass Roots or Extremist

Today I was listing to a republican and a democrat pundit on a talk radio show and the gist of the conversation was ( and yes I know they are talking points on both sides) how the president needs to move to the center if he wants to regain support from the independents and moderates in his own party. While I agree with this, I also doubt he has the capacity to do so. Not because he is stupid as some believe, because he certainly is not that, what he is, is an ideologue and a true believer in his vision and agenda. Anyway I digress. (As is normal for me) I was shocked to hear the democratic pundit say and I am paraphrasing, “the current republican majority is going to have to move more to the center, because the American people see them as Tea Party controlled and to far right for the good of the country”, Wow. I had to stop because I was so confused; didn’t we just have an election where the American people clearly stated which direction they want to government to go? And I believe that was more to the right then center, or am I crazy. And as for being controlled by the Tea Party movement, I hope so.
About that, we are going to hear a lot of left wing pundits over this next year talk about republicans and conservatives, (no the two are not necessarily the same) scream about the republican party’s unwillingness to compromise, or accuse them of being the party of no. this is a distraction aimed at regaining power, they did it during the lame duck session, why? Because they counted on the fact that while the American people knew the election results they would forget that the Dem’s still held the majority. So it was not the republicans they could not bring to the table, it was their own party, but they couldn’t say that now could they.
Tea Party; I would describe the movement as advocates for fiscal responsibility, smaller government, free market principles and conservative values. However if you talk to someone on the left they are an extreme special interest organization controlled by some large, rich white organization that no one can name. Why is it if you are a liberal movement you are grass roots, but if you are conservative you are controlled by the evil white empire. Yea baby; because Media Matters is not supported or controlled by a guy named George Soros, he does not providing millions in funding for NPR, you remember them, (National Propaganda Radio) and Code Pink is strictly a grass roots operation, yea right.
So the rule is this, if you are white and have a job, you have no voice on the direction of this country, I mean where do you get off expecting everyone to earn their own way, and demanding a government that supports sound economic policies, I mean how dare you, you extremist! Don’t you know in order to be a grass roots American, “and you don’t have to be an American”, you have to be a minority and looking for a hand out, then you are the real deal, yes I know that last statement will offend some, I just don’t care, let me tell you why. Today I saw a picture on the internet of a Hispanic (don’t know if he was legal or not) carrying a sign that read “ America we want more money, free housing and cars, you owe us and we will keep killing Arizona border agents until we get it”. I don’t even know what to say to that, but if he is grass roots and I am an extremist, then ok, that’s what I am, because I don’t want to be him.
So the moral of today’s blog is this; over the next year or two the Liberals are going to accuse conservatives of everything from immoral behavior to being out of touch with Americans, they will talk about anything but the truth, which is that pillars of the country like Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid are the reason we are in the mess we are in, let’s not forget that a year before the Dem’s took power consumer confidence was at a 25 year high and unemployment was 4% nationally, and Dem’s were still running around talking about how bad the economy was. That was so they could take power, well they have had to for 4 years and we see the result. So let me just ask you this. If George Bush was still the President do you think we would talk more about the current price of gas?
