Happy Independence Day! We’ll celebrate a BIGGER Independence Day in November of 2012!
Boortz forcefully takes down yet another numbskulled leftist talking point, namely the “Sarah Palin drew a map with crosshairs on Congressional districts that this nutbar didn’t see but we’ll slam her for it anyway” meme.
Firstly, the map in question on Palin’s web site:
What wingnut blog did I get this supposed “surveyor symbol” from? How about the U.S. Geological Survey‘s government web site (PDF file at link)?
Sorry about that, moonbats. But moving on…
“Targeting”? “Enemy Lines”? “Ripe targets”? Pots and kettles and stuff…
Consider the meme thoroughly discredited, liberals. You may now go back to your welfare lines.
You’ve finally got a House of Representatives that reflects normal America’s admiration for you, USMC. Semper Fi!
May 2010 be the watershed year that those of us in normal America hope and expect that it will be! God bless!
Blogging will likely be on hiatus until next week. My grandmother has gone Home to be with the Lord, and I will probably be out of the loop for the next few days. Prayers for my family are greatly appreciated. God bless you all.
I thank God that I live in a country that allows me the freedom (for now, anyway) to run a blog that says things critical of the power structure and the people who run it. I therefore avail myself of the opportunity to say the following (and I apologize to those that may be offended by this, but I’m speaking from the heart):
For the first time in my life, I don’t know how proud I am of my country.
See, I don’t recognize this country I currently inhabit. Not anymore. It doesn’t have anything to do with who this country elected, at least not in and of itself. After all, I was disgusted when Bill Clinton was elected and re-elected, but I just chalked it up in 1992 to the electorate being tired of “Read My Lips” and such, and in the case of 1996, the GOP fielding such a weak national candidate. But say what you will about Bubba (and believe me, I say quite a bit), but even that philandering disaster didn’t pull the country full bore to the left.
But in the case of 2008, we had a candidate who had no executive experience of any sort and who had spent every year since he ran for the U.S. Senate prepping himself for his first executive gig…which just so happened to be leader of the free world. He has spent a lifetime associated with racists and radicals, yet by simply saying “No, that’s not who I am”, the ignorant masses and their snake charmers in the MSM went along with it. His record indicated that he was very much a leftist ideologue who was more interested in foisting his failed ideology on this country irrespective of the damage it would do. Leftists have no use for facts, and Oprompter is no different.
And while the public is slowly coming around, I still have no faith in my countrymen. You see, poll after poll shows that the public is overwhelmingly against The One’s policies: government takeover of private enterprise, endless bailouts, attacking the Second Amendment, closing Gitmo, raising taxes, cap-and-tax, socialized medicine, etc. Yet while these same people are against these policies, they continue to give the American Idol president decent approval ratings? “I’m against all these things, big time! Hmm? What do I think about the president? I think he’s great! What? What do you mean, ‘He supports these policies’? He does? Well…I still like him! He looks good on TV! ”
More people can tell you who won American Idol than who their two U.S. Senators are or who the vice president is. I used to think the presidency was not a popularity contest, and yes, I even thought that when Bubba was winning. But not anymore. When a pseudo-Christian Marxist ascends to the highest office by charming the pants off of the concubine public, it’s pretty clear that the office is nothing more than a popularity contest. Nothing more.
Frankly, if during a presidential campaign, the First Lady-to-be can say that she’s just now, for the first time in her life, proud of her country and still see her hubby get elected, then I don’t expect much static for having the opposite sentiment: for the first time in my entire life, I am not proud of my country.
In addition to the president and that recently patriotized wife of his, there are other signs that my countrymen are not what they once were. One is the gradual move away from the country’s deep Christian roots (and if you are an atheist, then feel free not to comment on this aspect of the country). When a man professes his Christianity, then says he supports abortion rights, gay marriage, and a host of other abominations to the faith to which he supposedly adheres, or if that man is willing to support candidates who similarly bastardize the faith, that man insults and mocks God and His true believers.
Another is the emerging tendency of the sheeple’s reliance on screwing the producers in order to reward the non-producers. Note to self: order Atlas Shrugged. Yet another is the short attention span that this country has. Remember after 9/11 (for those of you on the left, feel free to Google that in case it doesn’t ring a bell) when the president told us that this would take years to address? Well, apparently a lot of people don’t recall that assessment at all. They’re too busy keeping up on the latest with Michael Jackson’s death. The sacrifice and patience that we saw in the WWII generation appear to be deader than Jacko himself.
During the Bush 43 terms, liberals said they detested their country because of who their president was. I thought it was rather lame of them to base their patriotism on who the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue happened to be at the moment. So how is my current sentiment different than theirs was at the time? Honestly, in some ways, it may have not been too different. But I would argue that the key difference was this: liberals were mad at their country over the last eight years because it wasn’t morally bankrupt enough for their liking, while I am mad at my country now because it is too morally bankrupt for my liking. Liberals are devoid of morals, thus their affection (at the time) for Billary and now for Obabykiller. Sorry, but I don’t roll that way.
I’m sorry, my friends, but in light of the above, I no longer recognize the America that has been described in our founding documents or in our history books. Madison, Jefferson, et al are rolling over in their graves. I see no signs whatsoever that the country will return itself to its liberty-based or God-based roots.
I understand that many, if not most, of you will feel differently, and that’s OK. I do not think you’re stupid for doing so. But as for me, until further notice, July Fourth is just another hot, muggy summer day.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and please take a few moments to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who gave their lives for this country.
Hopefully, Obama won’t see any more dead people in the audience like he did a year ago.
God bless you and yours on this Resurrection Day! 🙂
Spring is here, and the new president is screwing up more than Dubya on an English exam. Check back on Monday for the first of my weekly columns. It may lack invective, but it won’t lack material, as Uhhh-bama is proving to be a geyser of blogworthy material.
A little over four years ago, I gave this blogging thing a shot. It began with an e-mail to my family and friends letting them know of my blog. It took about a month or two of posts before someone finally left a comment, and I was excited about the comment…until it became clear that the commenter was a barking moonbat. I thought “I sure hope it gets better than this!”
Well, it did. Four years, five thousand posts, over ten thousand comments, and several national mentions later, this blog took off. True, it never compared to the “big boys” of the blogosphere like Little Green Footballs or Michelle Malkin, but that was never my goal. My goal was to inform, amuse, and spark discussion. Along the way, I’ve made a lot of friends, and for that, I will always be grateful. You guys are the best!
I also learned a lot of things myself. I learned that politics, while important, is not the end-all and be-all of life. Faith, family, friends, and fun are so much more important than who wins and loses elections. I have been awakened to the reality that while politics is temporary, God is eternal. Our time on Earth is limited, so I plan to make the most of the blessings that God has given to me. If you lack faith, might I recommend “The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel? Powerful stuff. Once Jesus saves you, your life will never be the same…and that’s a good thing!
At any rate, I want to thank each and every person who has visited this blog, regardless on whether or not you have commented here. I also want to thank each person who has contacted me, either by comment or e-mail, and told me how much they’ve enjoyed my writing. As a writer of any sort, that’s the best compliment that one can receive. I have been moved by the kind words of folks who I may possibly never personally meet.
In closing, I would like to ask that you fine folks keep in touch. You will probably see me around the blogosphere every once in a while leaving comments at places like Jenn’s Screw Liberals. She’s a good friend of mine, like many of you are. Also…
In light of the heavy lobbying I have received by many of you (and I am humbled by that), I am contemplating reviving Crush Liberalism in the spring, likely around March or April. However, if I do, it would probably be in the form of a weekly column, much like Ann Coulter does (albeit with much less antagonism and shock factor…I doubt that God wants me to have that kind of p#ss and vinegar in my writing). If that’s something you guys would like to see, please let me know by shooting me an e-mail at crushliberalism AT hotmail D0T c0m. I want to collect your e-mail addresses so I can sell it to a spam house for profit…I’m kidding! It’s so I can blast off an e-mail to you if/when the column comes out.
Until then, may God bless each and every one of you, and may you experience the peace and liberating joy than knowing Jesus brings to your life. I love you all!
Your friend in Christ,
Jonathan aka Crush Liberalism
P.S. If you’re ever going to be in the Jacksonville, FL, area, let me know and we may be able to get together for a moment or two. It would be a pleasure to meet you!
I’m relaxing at my family’s home in Memphis today, so I will put up my farewell post tomorrow…along with a bit of an announcement. In suspense yet? Good! 😀
Anywho, I hope everyone enjoys their New Years Eve, and I will see you fine folks back here again on 1/1/09!
Yes, today is the 67th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor that drew the US into WW II. The sacrifices made by America’s Greatest Generation back then ultimately paved the way for the eventual election of a Godless socialist empty suit who harkens back to those New Deals days of yore. What a country, huh?
At any rate, I have a deep admiration for this nation’s history, even if today’s generation of Godless mind-numbed ADHD Gimme Firsters don’t.
From ABC News:
All three CEOs – Rick Wagoner of GM, Alan Mulally of Ford, and Robert Nardelli of Chrysler – exercised their perks Tuesday by flying in corporate jets to DC. Wagoner flew in GM’s $36 million luxury aircraft to tell members of Congress that the company is burning through cash, asking for $10-12 billion for GM alone.
And these geniuses (genii?) wonder why their companies are going belly-up?
I would like to issue a heartfelt “Thank you” to all of America’s veterans of our armed forces. God bless you! 🙂
First of all, let’s keep the directive from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 in mind: “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” We shouldn’t praise God only when He gives us circumstances that we like. We should praise Him in ALL circumstances, even those such as this election’s results.
Having said that, I do weep for our country. Not so much because of potential economic or national security calamity that the new president-elect will likely bring on this country. Not so much because for the second straight election, we voted for someone who stood for nothing and ran on an empty “Vote for me, because I’m not him.” No, I think of how God dealt with His chosen people who had grown rebellious and tolerated/celebrated evil (see 2 Kings 21:1-16). If you haven’t gotten your soul right with God yet, I would advise you to get started pronto.
If there is any silver lining for born-again Christians here in America, FL did pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Therefore, our liberal state supreme court won’t be perverting the institution of marriage any time soon.
Finally, think back to the election of 1976. An up and coming star in the GOP, Ronald Reagan, ran against the incumbent, Greald Ford, in the primary. The establishment got behind Ford, and Ford’s loss enabled Jimmah Carter to get elected. While that did indeed suck, the fact is that Ford’s loss enabled the GOP to move in a fresh, bold direction. Four years later, Reagan won in an electoral landslide. But we had to endure Carter first.
My point is that there was a prevailing thought within the GOP establishment that McCain was going to attract all these “moderates”, disaffected Democrats, and independents, all of which would propel him to victory. It didn’t happen. After having suffered two consecutive electoral defeats, the GOP is bound to see some housecleaning and likely emerging of new leadership and ideas.
When you read this, WordPress blogs (including this one) will be back up. While I can update my blog, no one else can see it until WordPress gets the problem fixed.
Let the record show that it’s been down all morning, and that as of right now (noon EST), it’s still down.
UPDATE (10/27/2008 – 01:15 P.M. EST): Back up, for now.
Gone fishin’…see you Monday!
I found myself actually reaching that threshold over the weekend. In light of the mind-numbing idiocy displayed by an MSM who is so deeply in bed with Obama that they could answer the question “Boxers or briefs?”, I found myself wondering “Just what in the world am I doing all this for?”
I mean, in the end, the winner of the election will be the one who God wants to be the winner. He has allowed some very good presidents (Washington, Lincoln, Reagan) and some very bad presidents (Hoover, Carter, Clinton) to run this country. I defer to His wisdom in those matters. Yes, I will do my part, but in the end, I am at peace with whomever He decides to install in the Oval Office.
At any rate, I’m doing a great deal of soul-searching right now. I’m wondering if there are things other than blogging that God would rather I be spending my extra time doing.
Enjoy your holiday. See you tomorrow!
I’m busier than Barry O trying to refine his Iraq or Georgia policy, so feel free to discuss whatever you like. You can also leave me tips on stories to blog about. Talk amongst yourselves.
Regarding Obama on that moonbat to whom he’s married, via Allah:
The government can run a friggin’ restaurant, and the left wants us to turn over our health care to them? Kiss my derriere! From the Washington comPost:
Year after year, decade upon decade, the U.S. Senate’s network of restaurants has lost staggering amounts of money — more than $18 million since 1993, according to one report, and an estimated $2 million this year alone, according to another.
The financial condition of the world’s most exclusive dining hall and its affiliated Capitol Hill restaurants, cafeterias and coffee shops has become so dire that, without a $250,000 subsidy from taxpayers, the Senate won’t make payroll next month.
The embarrassment of the Senate food service struggling like some neighborhood pizza joint has quietly sparked change previously unthinkable for Democrats. Last week, in a late-night voice vote, the Senate agreed to privatize the operation of its food service, a decision that would, for the first time, put it under the control of a contractor and all but guarantee lower wages and benefits for the outfit’s new hires. …
Got that? Partial privatization of retirement is bad, but total privatization of a restaurant is a good idea. Idiots.
And now, for the blasphemy:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Rules and Administrations Committee, which oversees the operation of the Senate, said she had no choice.
“It’s cratering,” she said of the restaurant system. “Candidly, I don’t think the taxpayers should be subsidizing something that doesn’t need to be. There are parts of government that can be run like a business and should be run like businesses.”
But something like this could never happen to health care, could it?
In a masterful bit of understatement, Feinstein blamed “noticeably subpar” food and service. Foot traffic bears that out. Come lunchtime, many Senate staffers trudge across the Capitol and down into the basement cafeteria on the House side. On Wednesdays, the lines can be 30 or 40 people long.
House staffers almost never cross the Capitol to eat in the Senate cafeterias.
The joys of socialism, eh?
Out of the loop today. Talk amongst yourselves. Be back tomorrow.
But hey…they “support the troops”, right? From Hot Air:
In the Charleston Gazette Sunday, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-WV, who has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., said that Sen. John McCain “has a temper” and, according to the story, “believes McCain has become insensitive to many human issues.
“McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues.”
If this sounds familiar to you, it should; it’s basically what the North Vietnamese said about McCain while they tortured him in the POW camps. It indicts everyone in the Air Force and the Navy whose job it is to fire laser-guided missiles now in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. Rockefeller also sounds an awful lot like Barack Obama, who claimed that the entire strategy in Afghanistan consisted of “just air raiding villages and killing civilians”.
Besides, fighter pilots don’t drop a lot of bombs; they protect bombers. They generally engage other aircraft and most of their targets are air-to-air.
So, note to our pilots and aviators: you obviously have anger issues if you enlisted in the Air Force or Navy. Senator Rockefeller and his fellow Democrats apparently believe that you hate humanity as evidenced by volunteering to conduct air campaigns against America’s enemies. In fact, Senator Rockefeller (D-WV) comes close to considering you war criminals. Of course, this would be much more offensive if Rockefeller had a single foggy clue as to what a fighter pilot actually does.
Oh, and one more note to Rockefeller: Laser-guided missiles and bombs actually reduce collateral civilian casualties. Just thought you should know.
Addendum: What was Rockefeller’s stance on Bill Clinton’s Bosnian intervention, which consisted solely of Air Force strikes?
Update: Added the Navy, which was McCain’s branch, after all … Also, Michael Goldfarb reminds Rockefeller that McCain got shot down on a low-level attack that was designed to minimize collateral casualties.
Rockefeller has since apologized, but all he did was say what most Democrats are already thinking…they just have the political good sense to keep that kind of crap to themselves.
Some folks are able to access this, and some aren’t. WordPress’ forums are mysteriously unavailable. Go figure. Anywho, let the monkeys at WordPress do their jobs and see how long it takes them to fix the problems.
UPDATE (6:35 p.m. EST): All appears well now, knock on wood.
I’ve decided to infiltrate Code Pinko headquarters, disguised as an aging, saggy-breasted, mentally unstable vagitarian…you know, one of them? Wish me luck.
OK, why lie? I’m taking a personal day today. I normally don’t do much on the weekend, but I’ll post some stuff tomorrow and/or Sunday to offset the half-dozen or so nuggets of crap you fine folks have come to expect from me during the average weekday. Have a great day!
I’m off today. Actually, many might argue that I’m “off” every day, but I digress. Everyone enjoy your Dr. Martin Luther King holiday, and take a moment to reflect on the man who gave his life for equality. See you tomorrow!
“Appearing on National Public Radio’s light-hearted quiz show Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me” the Washington Post says White House press secretary Dana Perino “got into the spirit of things and told a story about herself that she had previously shared only in private: During a White House briefing, a reporter referred to the Cuban Missile Crisis — and she didn’t know what it was.”
Said Perino: “I was panicked a bit because I really don’t know about… the Cuban Missile Crisis. It had to do with Cuba and missiles, I’m pretty sure.”
D’oh! Google it, Dana. It’ll help next time those reporters ask you crazy things like, oh, I dunno…American history!
Today’s “Damn that global ‘warming'” update: Chicago gets tons of snow, North Dakota breaks an 81-year-old record for snow, and Maine ties a 117-year-old record for snow. The junk science advocates will undoubtedly blame the massive amounts of snow on global “warming”, though of course they’ll use the term “climate change” so as not to look stupider than they already do.
All the while, the Useless Nations are meeting in tropical Bali, staying at plush resorts and dining on fine food, in the name of combating global “warming”! But if you’re an environmental publication with doubts about manmade “warming”, then forget about getting press credentials at the tropical shindig.
Fait accompli, my friends. The shameful saga of The New Republic has culminated in the only way it could have: TNR has had to admit they can no longer stand behind their story. In other words, their Scott Beauchamp “Winter Soldier”esque story was a steaming pile of bovine feces.
Between the conflict of interest, the hopelessly shameful biased coverage, their reliance on a single slanderous source who, oh by the way, happens to be a Bush-bashing barking moonbat and pathalogical liar), and their inability to perform some basic fact-checking (you know, that thing that the MSM sneers about when denigrating us bloggers?), TNR was doomed on this Ahab-like journey of theirs. Their credibility is forever ruined, and if there were any justice in this world, their editor-in-chief Franklin Foer would go the way of Dan Rather.
Michelle Malkin has complete coverage here. The good guys won this round, folks.
