Just so you know, I am pissed off at the GOP. My first pick going into this primary season was Guiliani. He did great things in New York City, I made the assumption that he would do great things for the country. My next pick was Thompson. A true conservative. But these guys are both apparently morons. They each decided to actually campaign entirely too freaking late and then drop out when they didn’t win these make or break states. The only reason they did not win these states is because no one was really certain whether or not they were serious about the race. Because they started campaigning too late. So now both have dropped out and I am left with RINO McCain or flip-flopping Morman Romney. I’m going for Mitt. It’s easier to believe that he is a true conservative, and I have no question about his business savvy.
You know what else pisses me off? Idiotic feminists that claim to speak for me just because we happen to have matching genitalia. Rachel Lucas really said it best. “Vote with your vagina” Wow. That would take some very impressive muscle control and probably guarantee there was quite the male turnout at the polls. I don’t even want to think about the hygiene issues there.
I know you’re probably all wondering how I am feeling about the race for president now that the Fred has dropped out of the running. The truth is, I feel far too crummy with this evil satanic cold I seem to have caught to have actually put a lot of thought into it. But with Super Tuesday lurking just over the hill, I suppose I should.
My feeling about the Dems has not changed. I still think they are all Socialists and will tax us until we can’t see straight. Which in their minds is okay since they intend to do all the thinking and seeing for the populace.
Which brings us to the Republicans.
Let’s start with Ron Paul. Intelligent guy, I will give him that. Unfortunately, his ideas about Iraq and national security just won’t work. In order for us to truly be neutral, we would have to follow the the same plan used by the Swiss. Which means that every able bodied person would be going to boot camp. Every single person that could would be carrying a loaded firearm. They would sleep with them under their beds and train with them regularly. Maybe I am just a cynic, but I just don’t see the average bloated American going for that. Although I would pay to see the bleach blond, former trophy wife, soccer mom lumber her giant thighs out of her huge SUV to use the range to practice with her AR-15. That would be picture worthy.
Next we’ve got Huckabee. Here’s a guy that wants to extend rights and benefits to illegal immigrants. He’s pro-sanctuary cities and big government. This guy’s actually running on the Republican ticket?
And speaking of RINOs (Republican In Name Only), we have the biggest of them all–John McCain. Yes, I respect that he served our country in war. I can’t even imagine what it was like to be a POW in Vietnam undergoing the kind of torture that he did. I do not doubt his Patriotism for one minute. But the guy is certainly not a Conservative. He worked with Ted Kennedy (otherwise know as king liberal incarnate) to write a bill providing amnesty to illegal immigrants. He voted against the Bush administration tax cuts. The guy has been officially endorsed by the freaking NY Times for crying out loud! Bill Clinton even said referring to his wife:
And then he painted this scene: “She and John McCain are very close,” he said. “They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.”
Maybe he’s not actually running for president. Maybe he is trying to be HildaBeast’s running mate. Interesting that his biggest endorsements are coming from the wrong camp.
Which brings us to Guiliani. I still like this guy, but is he actually still running? He was the big dog in the park until he decided that his best strategy was to disappear. Maybe he’s right. Maybe he has saved himself from the friendly fire of the early caucus/primary states. Only time will tell.
Finally, we have Mitt Romney. My opinion of him is decidedly improved. Yeah, he’s got a wacky religion that I think is severely misguided, but at least he isn’t a Scientologist. (Uh Oh, better duck the incoming lawsuits for calling Scientology a crackpot cult.) Romney is a Capitalist through and through. He’s also a small government federalist that believes that the real power really does belong to the people. The Five Brothers blog on his campaign website is funny too. Nice to see that he has such a strong family and a good sense of humor. His wife, Anne, pretty cool too. If I can get over the whole Mormon thing, I might actually like this guy.
Nah. My endorsement is going to Sunny Lucas. She’s a strong black bitch that isn’t going to take it anymore. She’s showing her teeth to the terrorists rather than rolling over and playing dead. Yeah, she’s a dog, but are we so biased that we can’t get over a species difference?
Because he enjoys sharing things with me that tick me off and wants to make sure I don’t actually work while at work, my friend sent me this little rant. Clink on this link at your own risk, she might think you actually wanted to read her *ahem* “writing”. I need giant air quotes to put around the word “writing”. Use your imagination. I know, linking to her stands a chance of getting her hits. That’s just a risk I’m going to have to take.
Here we go! Just so you will be prepared, she is apparently obsessed with skin color. I think in her mind I would qualify as a ‘brown woman’ since I don’t tend to sunburn due to a very American mutt heritage.
I am so tired of pink men bombing brown children and rationalizing it as fighting terrorism.
Um, riiiight. Americans taking out tactical military targets of a country is bombing ‘brown children.’ I guess she has never seen this incredibly moving photo taken by Michael Yon. The ‘brown children’ were gathering around the ‘pink men’ only to be viciously attacked by terrorists. Yes, terrorists. For the benefit of this (huge air quotes) journalist (end huge air quotes), I will point out that they were ‘brown men’ although I believe their skin color is inconsequential. Their hearts are apparently black.
I am so tired of pink men telling women (of all colors) what to do with their wombs–which connect with their brains–in case you forgot.
Really?!?! Damn, I must have missed that day in anatomy. All this time I thought a woman’s womb was specifically designed for carrying a baby. But liberals treat it like rental property to be occupied at the owner’s whim. They want to protect the welfare leaching crack whore’s home, but have no qualms evicting an innocent even though eviction=death for unborn children.
I am so tired of pink men having wives who stand behind them and nod sagely on television. I am so tired of pink men expecting that someone–a brown, black, yellow or white woman–will trail behind them changing light bulbs, taking out garbage, washing laundry, keeping food in the house, taking care of kids of all ages, of parents of all ages. I am so tired of pink men whose wives double or triple the family income thinking they can spend it without doing a damn thing at home.
Oh I get it! She’s a feminazi shrew. Because she is incapable of choosing a worthwhile mate, she’s going to lash out. If you are a woman that is only attracting worthless boys, maybe it’s time you changed your strategy. Although, I have my doubts that she is actually even interested in men. But I’ll avoid the personal attacks, apparently her childhood was horrific.
Don’t tell me about women who kill. I know there are some–but fewer. So let’s just remember our mothers–who bore us, protected us against our fathers and grandfathers and all the pink or brown men who wanted to rape us or kill us or starve us because we were girls.
I jumped to conclusions and for that I am sorry. I assumed from her photo that she didn’t grow in a Muslim Extremist household. I guess I was wrong.
As citizens, it is your responsibility to know when your freedoms are being infringed upon. Don’t kid yourself into thinking that what happens in California is limited to California alone. Erosion is a process. Inconsequential little bits are taken away until nothing remains.
Repeat after me: Handouts will not fix the economy.
I am sick and tired of hearing the liberal moonbats go on and on about federally funded programs to ‘jump-start’ the economy. The hildabeast decided to roll out her plan recently. Basically, she wants to take my hard earned money to bail out the selfish idiots that bought homes far above their means. I bought my house during the great housing boom. I could easily have gotten an adjustable rate mortgage and bought a house that dwarfs my eleven-hundred square feet. But I didn’t. You want to know why? Because I’m not stupid. I bought within my means. I don’t own a crystal ball that could tell me how the interest rate situation would be for the next 30 years. And neither does anyone else apparently. Now the foreclosures are flying and I am supposed to not only feel sorry for the people lacking the common sense to understand what they were betting into but also to foot the bill for their financial blunders. As if the stalling and dropping housing values weren’t punishment enough.
Here’s another thing to repeat: Adjustable Rate means that the interest rate will change.
You know, we’ve made bad financial decisions. We ran up a crap load of credit card debt and then couldn’t pay it off. Guess who bailed us out. No one. We worked it out with the various creditors. We made payment arrangements. I took out a loan against my 401K. We did whatever it took. The creditors made deals with us. Some accepted reduced payoffs if we could give them a lump sum. The amount they write-off counts as income. You have to report it on your taxes. The tax hit for us was enough that we had to take out another loan. Nasty interest rate since we had run our credit score into the ground. Just as we paid that loan off, I lost my job. You know what happens to a 401K loan when you lose your job? It becomes a withdrawal. Which translates into another big tax hit. That loan is finally paid off. We’ve worked hard to rebuild our credit from our own financial blunders. It wasn’t easy, but it also wasn’t the responsibility of anyone else but us. Yeah, it sucked. It hurt to eat Ramen and drive a car with over 300,000 miles. I personally replaced the transmission on that one since we could afford to pay to have it done. Ordered the replacement transmission on eBay.
I’m not looking for any kind of sympathy there. We were stupid, and we had to make the sacrifices for it. Never once did we put our hands out to Uncle Sam to fix it for us. And we easily qualified to do so. The poverty line looked like a lofty goal at the time.
I’m ashamed of my peers in the entitlement generation. I’m appalled at out over-burdened system. I’ve no expectation of ever receiving a dime of the social security I have paid into my entire working life. It’s embarrassing that this is the state of our society. People have forgotten that they make their own luck.
The only way for the government to help the economy is to cut taxes and government spending. Handouts will not fix the economy. Handouts are what got us here in the first place. You may think I’m crazy, but I think when you give people control of their own money, most will spend it wisely. Those that don’t, really aren’t my problem. That’s not to say I don’t support charities. I am absolutely in favor of voluntary charitable giving. I’m just tired of the Robin Hood attitude of the liberals.
Only in Heaven are we entitled to more than we have worked for, and that’s because Jesus paid that price.
So some water works from Hildabeast convinced the women in New Hampshire to turn out in droves to support her. Grand. Think that ploy is going to work in office? I can just see it now, the televised plea to terrorists, her face streaming with crocodile tears, begging them to stop bombing our cities. I’m sure that will cause Middle Eastern women to step out in droves…..for their beheading.
Experience? Please. This is a woman whose experience consists of interning with a known Communist in California, hosting dinner parties at the White House, and making sure her husband’s *ahem* cigar was taken care of. But she does have a lovely set of china to show for all her hard work. And lest we forget her failed pet project. All housewives need a hobby right? That’s right, the disaster that was HillCare.
Yes, you can see a lot of ‘change’ coming from the Clinton dynasty. But much like the Dodge of the same name, it may be ugly but it just won’t die. But change is the word this election, as with every election. And she promises-More pantsuits on the podium!
Paging Mr. Thompson and Mr. Giuliani. Gentlemen, the time has come to act. Show us that you are in this race, and we will get behind you. It’s a helluva fight ahead, and I hope you’ve got your boxing gloves.
Prior to this election, I was never really interested in politics. I’ve always had the views that I have had, but never before have I felt such a need to share them. I vote at every opportunity and make an effort understand the choice I am making. That hasn’t changed. But this year, I itch to discuss it. I am reading a ridiculous amount of news regarding who is running, what they stand for, and how they are doing in the polls. Not that polls really mean much.
Something I fail to understand is why the Iowa caucus is so important. So what that it’s first. Just because some people in another state are willing to go out in the cold to say they plan to vote for someone doesn’t amount to squat in my opinion. But apparently since they are first, we are all supposed to follow their example and vote the candidates they pick. I know a couple of people from Iowa. They are nice people, but they aren’t going to tell me how to vote. I’m not even convinced that the whole ‘caucus’ thing is an accurate representation of how the people of Iowa feel.
But for any lemmings out there that want to copy their opinions from someone else, let me tell you how to feel. You should listen because I write a blog.
They are all basically the same this year. All Communists.
You’ve got Edwards who is really nothing more than expensive hair and a nice smile. His lack of substance is inversely proportional to the size of his hair.
Then of course you’ve got Barack Obama who you know we should vote for because Oprah Winfrey says so. (That’s funny, spell check has no problem with Oprah Winfrey’s name but puts red lines under Barack Obama.) Everyone knows that when Oprah tells you to do something, you should do it. She has more money than you do.
And let us not forget the communist queen herself, Hillary Clinton who shall henceforward be referred to as Hildabeast. If elected, she promises to defeat Capitalism and plunge us into socialism because it’s worked so well for places like Cuba and China. Hildabeast wants to control your medical care so that your doctor visits have all the comfort of your local post office. She wants to control our borders just like her husband’s pants, everyone can get in. Although I think she is the most frightening of the bunch, she is her own worst enemy and I believe her candidacy with self destruct on its own.
I know there are others supposedly vying for the nomination, but we all know they don’t really count.
There is certainly more choice over on the right side of the fence. So many choices, in fact, that conservatives have begun adding new adjectives. The big ones being social and fiscal conservatives. As I am sure you have figured out, I’m a conservative myself. Leaning more to the fiscal side if I must choose. So here’s how I feel about the current crop.
Duncan Hunter and Ron Paul-they aren’t really in the running. So sorry. Get over it and pick a real candidate that might actually stand some chance of winning. All these guys, especially Paul, are going to do is take enough votes away from someone else that the results are thrown off. You do all remember Ross Perot right? He was the only reason we got a Clinton in office in the first place.
I don’t trust Mitt Romney, and it’s not just because he looks like Frankenstein’s monster. He claims that he is a devout morman but that it will not affect his decisions as President. These 2 statements are mutually exclusive. As a morman, you choose to let the church run your life. Either he isn’t as devout as he says or it will affect his presidency. Either way, his statement is a bold faced lie that he thinks his money will force the voters to swallow. Not that lying is anything new to a politician, but that one is too much for me to take. Edit-Added 01/09/2008: Admittedly, my knowledge about the mormon faith is limited. You might find this interesting though. His faith is not the only reason I plan to vote for someone else though. The flip-flopping is a big one there too.
Currently carrying the evangelical vote is Mike Huckabee. He’s a baptist minister from Arkansas. His time as governor is remembered more for his dramatic weight loss than anything that he actually accomplished for the people. Obesity is certainly a problem for the United States, maybe he could help with that. Since he intends to turn the country over to the illegal immigrants, we’ll all need to tighten our belts anyway.
I’ve honestly not really formed much of an opinion on John McCain. His strong suit is defense and national security, and I can certainly agree with him there. I like that he very interested in protecting our second amendment rights. I don’t think he stands a chance in the general election though and so hope he doesn’t win the nomination.
When everyone started throwing their hats in the ring, I was immediately drawn to Rudy Guiliani. He’s got a tremendous record as mayor of New York City. He drastically reduced crime and left them with a surplus in place of the debt in inherited with the office. I don’t really care how many times he has been married. I’m skeptical about his track record with gun control. I still like him overall though. I get the Team Rudy newsletters and everything. Besides, I’ve seen him on the Tonight Show and feel he has enough charm and charisma to win over several democrats and independents.
Finally, we have The Fred. I really like this guy. I also like that he is running because people want him to do so and he feels he could do the job well. He’s not riding the wave of some power trip. He’s bold enough to state his views as they are and not package them for the audience he happens to be speaking to that day. He is who he is, like him or not. I happen to like the guy. Go-Visit the website. Sign up to be a Friend of Fred. He has the best stance on immigration of the lot of them, just for starters. And he’s enough of a man to chew up Obama and spit him into Oprah’s next diet fad.
I’d be thrilled to see a Thompson/Guiliani ticket in the general election.
