Too Many Things to Do Individual Posts

May 20, 2008

It seems there’s quite a bit of new Barack Obama news, and I might fill up WordPress’ servers if I did a new post for each one.  Where to start?  Lessee…

First, He warns us that Republicans have been scaring people since 1968 in order to win elections, then he of course goes right out and…scares the olderly folks by telling them John McCain is going to steal their Social Security and make them eat dog food.  (Okay, I made the last part up, but that exact scare line has been used against Republicans before)

“Let me be clear, privatizing Social Security was a bad idea when George W. Bush proposed it, it’s a bad idea today,” Obama said. “That’s why I stood up against this plan in the Senate and that’s why I won’t stand for it as president.”

Okay, that is the same Social Security that is already long ago bankrupt, right?  The one that just last year alone added $900 bln in new unfunded liabilities?  The one that went from 16 people paying in for every one drawing out when I was born, to about 4 to one now, projected to head for about two to one before I even retire?  Yeah, we don’t need any reform or anything, let’s just scare old folks so their children and grandchildren can eat the dog food so they don’t have to!

Next, He gets a bit testy about an ad that the Tennessee Republican Party ran, featuring the lovely Mrs Obama, telling them it was ‘unacceptable’, ‘low class’, and that we should ‘lay off my wife’.

Now, Barry, your Lovely Wife Loretta is putting herself out there on the stump, probably as much as you are.  What she says on your behalf is fair game.  If you don’t want her being brought into the campaign, then don’t bring her into the campaign.  Besides, exactly what is in this ad that she didn’t say?  Are those not her words, from her own mouth?

Last week, President Bush spoke in front of the Knesset in Israel, saying

“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” the President said to the country’s legislative body, “We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”

Barack rather quickly took offense, and went on the offensive, even sending out the great international negotiator Jon Cary to lie for him, among others, despite Bush never mentioning Obama’s name, or even implying it was him.  One member of the dinosaur media even went so far as to say that What Hitler was demanding was not unreasonable, regarding Czechoslovakia.  Indeed, the White House denied Bush was speaking of Obama.  Speculation from the gitgo was that Bush was actually referring to Jimmy Carter, who has been playing kissy-face with Hamas recently.  Or, he could have been referring to Speaker Pelosi, who made a pilgrimage to Syria last year, to assure President Assad that we meant them no harm.  While at the same time, they were busy building a rogue nukular facility in the desert with the Nork’s assistance.  Which the Israelis promptly destroyed.  Bush could have been speaking in fact, of the Fwench, who seem to be reaching out to Hamas.

Which leads us to his statement that he of course would never negotiate with terrorists, unless of course they are the terrorists leading the leading terrorist group in the world, Iran.  Of course, he wanted “all those who have influence with Hezbollah” to “press them to stand down.”  That Hezbollah in Lebanon, taking them down into a new civil war.  The same Hezbollah who is a proxy for…Iran.  The Iranians who are ordering them to cause war on Lebanon, ordered them to make war on Israel, are going to ‘press them to stand down.’  Um hmmmm…and you’re going to go negotiate with Iran, unconditionally, right?

Which leads to the next lil’ fib, in which He claims that we “on the right have distorted and reframed” his views.” and that “…nobody said he would initiate contacts at the presidential level; that requires due preparation and advance work.”

Well, Barack, I think you, among many other politicians, seem to think that there is no such thing as this here Intrawebs Thingy.  You know, where things exist forever?  First, He said very clearly in last July’s debate, that he would, the NYT confirms this last November, it’s even on His own website!


Speaking of our enemies, he seems to think that nations like Iran, Cuba, North Korea, and Venezuela aren’t ‘serious threats’.  So…nations that repeatedly threaten us openly, are rather known for their training of insurrectionist forces in Columbia, Angola, El Salvador, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Egypt aren’t a real threat?  Let’s ask Israel if they would agree with that assessment.  Or the Columbians, et al.

Of course, we can’t forget Sweetiegate, in which he told a Detroit female reporter who couldn’t get an answer to her question from him “Hold on one second, sweetie. We’ll do a press avail, thanks,”. 

Which of course, His Followers in the MSM promptly absolved him of any guilt in the matter.  Now, do you really think that they would have been quite so forgiving if it were, say, a Republican calling a woman Sweetie?

Then, He seemed to get the facts wrong about Afghanistan, Iraq, and the respective languages spoken while bashing the Iraq war.

You certainly can’t forget the ‘Hamas Hearts Obama’ story, in which the terrorist organization in the Middle East has set up a phone bank to cold call people in America, to urge them to vote for Him.  Yes, that’s right.  Terrorists are hoping for Obama to win.  Now, He claims that He wouldn’t negotiate with Hamas, but they sure do see something in Him they like.

Obama managed to kiss up to the mob, promising them He would call the dogs off the Teamsters, ending years’ worth of scrutiny.  The payback for their endorsement of Him, I guess.  I guess it’s okay though, since the Teamsters have no problems with corruption, right?

The Planet Is In Peril, and we must all sacrifice, right?  I mean, it is for the children you know.  Why, just yesterday, He was in Seattle, and told us that

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”

This is the Obama who drove a Hemi V8 and a GMC Envoy until charged with hypocrisy, all the while claiming even back in 2006 “the blame for the world’s higher temperature rests on gas guzzling vehicles.”  In addition, he seems to be a Learjet Liberal, flitting to fundraisers in a private jet, getting whisked away from the airport in…you got it, eeevillle SUVs.  Typical for the Learjet Liberals, reduction of lifestyles is only for me, but not for thee.

There’s the Obama version of the Tuzla Dash, in which He kind of fibs about His reception at a speech on the automobile industry.  He claims he was laying down the law to automakers, and they were so offended at this, that ‘nobody clapped’.  Just one problem…they did.  Repeatedly.  Some enterprising soul put a little video together.  A compare and contrast, you might say.

How powerful is Obama?  He’s ‘been to all 57 states’!  He must have done the Time Warp Again and been to the future, in which Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, and some others are all added on!  Now, I’m actually guessing He meant to say 47 or something, except that that doesn’t constitute ‘all’ the states either.  But hey, I’m feeling charitable, so let’s do much more for Him than the Left would do for McCain, and write it off to the wear and tear of campaigning ever since he took office in 2005!

I can’t let this go without mentioning the real problem with all these pesky little attacks.  It’s….pssstttt…Fox News.  And nameless, faceless goons!

“Part of it is because there have been these e-mails that have been sent out very systematically, presumably by various political opponents, although I don’t know who,” he said. “And there are a lot of voters who get their news from Fox News.

Yeah, that’s the ticket!  That’s why those bitter, clinging to their guns and religion, typical white folks in places like West Virginia and Kentucky aren’t voting for you!  Hey, it might even be the Joooooosss!

Of course, these things are all just ‘distractions’ and off limits just like we can’t call him a liberal, can’t question his toughness on the ‘WoT’, nor mention his far left views on social issues, can’t mention his background in Chicago, either.  These things have been laid down to us, and we are not to trespass.  The meme that any questioning at all is racism is already going around, and be prepared for it to really ramp up after the convention. 

Well, Diary, I guess I’ll close for now.  How’s about leaving you with a bit of levity, regarding Him before we go?


The Right Reverend Wright

March 14, 2008

I’ve stayed away from writing about Jeremiah Wright, Barak Obama’s pastor and ‘mentor’. No particular reason, he just sickens me so much, I tried to push it away. There’s been lots of evidence out there that the man is nothing but a race-baiting, America hating bigot, but I’ve left it alone. There’s been some video come out in the last 24 hours, however, that you just have to comment on.

Hot Air has a good writeup on the matter, with additional video.

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in the Bible for killing innocent people,” he said in a 2003 sermon. “God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

In addition to damning America, he told his congregation on the Sunday after Sept. 11, 2001 that the United States had brought on al Qaeda’s attacks because of its own terrorism.

“We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye,” Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.

“We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards. America’s chickens are coming home to roost,” he told his congregation.

Jesus was black? Really? I’ve heard this garbage before, on talk radio, and seen it from some nitwits online, but the first time I’ve ever heard it preached like this. Obama ain’t rich? Really? He grew up poor? Dang, going to one of the nicest private schools in Hawaii, I want to be poor, living in Hawaii and in private school, and later going to Harvard! Sucks to be Obama, huh?During a Christmas sermon, Wright tried to compare Obama’s upbringing to Jesus at the hands of the Romans.

“Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people,” Wright said. “Hillary would never know that.”

“Hillary ain’t never been called a nigger. Hillary has never had a people defined as a non-person.”

In his Jan. 13 sermon, Wright said:

“Hillary is married to Bill, and Bill has been good to us. No he ain’t! Bill did us, just like he did Monica Lewinsky. He was riding dirty.”

This is your Christmas sermon?!? This is the Word of God??? Cussing in church, and using the word ‘nigger’? (As an aside, the Right Rev. Wright was one of the individuals who helped Al Sharpton to ‘bury the “n” word’ a year ago, in the aftermath of the Don Imus scandal. I guess it’s okay when you’re using it to make a point that Hillary has had a cushy life and poor ol Obama has lived in a van, down by the river) Glenn Beck had a really good point this morning. He mentioned how he literally would have died if it weren’t for the Sabbath, and the recharge it gives his soul. He doesn’t work, he spends the entire day with his family, and he goes to church to receive the Word, and refresh his soul.

This is how every church-goer I know treats church, minus of course the peacocks, who want to see and be seen. But most people are going in order to receive a message that is soothing to their soul, to help them get through their daily grind. These are not messages that are soothing, they don’t refresh, they don’t do anything but make people angry. I ask you: can you read these words, watch this video, and feel refreshed? This is a message of anger, hate, it’s a message designed to work people into a frenzy and send them from the Hallowed Ground Mad As Hell, and They Aren’t Going to Take It Any More. How very much like the Friday prayers of islam this is. Until now, I thought islam had the lock on being the only religion that had its holy day designed to send people out into the streets angry and rioting. Now, I’m not so sure.

Every Sunday, for the last twenty years, this man has been filling hate and garbage into the head of the Man Who Would Be President. Tell me that hasn’t taken. I’m not normally one to make judgements on what is in someone’s heart. That is between them and God. Matthew 7:16 says “By their fruits you will know them.” Look at this man’s fruit. His fruit is standing on a stage, behind a lectern, with a microphone every Sunday, shaping people’s minds and attitudes. His fruit is the thousands of people who have passed through his church over the years with feelings of ill will for white people, Jews, America, and anyone who isn’t doing things for them. That fruit smells rather rotten to me.

This man made a point of saying God Damn America. Jeremiah Wright has made a point of allying himself with the ‘Palestinian cause’. These are people who are to their core dedicated to the destruction of both the nation of Israel, and every Jew on the face of the Earth. The bible tells us rather clearly that the nation that turns against Israel is going to have some troubles coming its way. If the Right Reverend Wright wants God to Damn America, then he’s surely on the right track with his pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel message. We turn against Israel, and God will surely Damn America.

Many of this man’s defenders have said that he has many messages of hope, good messages for young black men, to take charge of their lives and be real men. Louis Farrakhan does as well. I’ve long thought that maybe 3/4 of Farrakhan’s message was great for young black men, and young men in general. But. But there is that little matter of Hate Whitey. Hate the Jews. Hate America. “But, so much of his message is good! Can’t you just listen and ignore the bad?”

Let’s say that I offer to make you a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Tasty, right? Lots of great morsels in them. Right before you take a bite, I tell you that in the bag of chips, I mixed in a few rabbit, er, pellets. Sure, most of the morsels are good, tasty chocolate. Do you really want to eat that cookie now, knowing that there’s some rabbit poo mixed in? That’s what this is. These messages of anger and hate are like the morsels of rabbit poo thrown into the mix that spoil the whole message. Rev. Wright comes across as very much like Farrakhan in many ways, and these videos are demonstrative of that.A Pastor is a teacher. Someone the church hires to teach them a message, and to lead them spiritually. Let’s make the comparison to a schoolteacher. Do you really want your children’s teacher to have such anger, and hate, and be filling their young skulls full of mush every day? I hope not, anyway. Now, it is happening in colleges around America, but that’s going to have to be left for another post. Think about your eight year old. A teacher. Pumping hate into her head. Your ten year old son. Being raised to go hate Whitey, America, and everything is someone elses fault. That’s what this man is doing, but not only with the children. He’s putting this into all their heads. You cannot listen to such a message year in, year out, and not have it affect your way of thinking. Sorry, can’t do it.Another point: notice the cheering and clapping the attendees are doing. They love hearing the message, they believe in the message. If they didn’t believe in the message, they would have ishtcanned the man when Bill Clinton was still using Arkansas state troopers to pick up hillbilly chicks. They. believe. his. message. One can only conclude that Barak Obama believes this mans message of hate as well. He’s been a member of this church for 20 years. He claims Wright as a mentor. He had the man baptize his girls. ADD moment: Barak, do you really want your little girls having such hate pumped into their heads? If Barak didn’t believe this message, why didn’t he leave the church? Why didn’t he speak up? He was, after all, a community leader before even joining the church. If he didn’t agree with this message, he could have easily spoken with much of the membership, found out if there was similar feeling, and if not, then left. Barak is a believer. Believe it.

Don’t believe me? Look at everyone around him. You don’t normally do guilt by association, not in a single instance. Buuuuuttt…. His wife has repeated statements about how bad America is, how she’s not been proud of America until now, other inflammatory statements, including her racially divisive senior thesis at Princeton. His staffers have Che Guevara posters on the wall, ( Your pastor (and self-admitted mentor) and your wife are two of the most influential people a person can have in your life. They are true believers in this filth. The circumstantial evidence is mounting here…. There’s other evidence mounting that Barak Obama isn’t quite the clean vision of Hope and Change and Change for Hope and Chope and Hange that we’ve been led to believe, but that’s for another post, some other time.

A bit of additional circumstantial evidence that lends credence to the current discussion, however, does exist. During the National Anthem, he cups his balls and makes a point of refusing to wear an American Flag lapel pin, when even the total lefties Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, and Dennis Kucinich are wearing them. It’s called America. It’s what politicians do when they want our votes, because that’s how Americans feel. We want our leaders to like America. Again, that one, in and of itself was explained by Obama, and fine enough. But when you add it to all the other circumstantial evidence… It starts to pile up and one gets a picture that Barak Obama is a True Believer in The Audacity of Hate. Just like his Preacher man.
