Grounded in reason and fact

In an article titled "Perception vs. reality" Bill Sammonexamines the appeal of one Osama, er, BarackOsama, er, Obama bin Laden, er BarackObama (as Ted Kennedy likes to call him) and how his voting record is different than his rhetoric.

Obama writes in his book that “The arguments of liberals are more often grounded in reason and fact.” By liberals I assume he means the Collectivist hand ringers like his mom, but putting aside the semantics of what constitutes true liberalism vs. 20th century Progressive and Socialist ideology, I think Obama is wrong. As proof read another quote directly from Obama's book:

“I agree with George W. Bush when in his second inaugural address he proclaimed a universal desire to be free,” Obama wrote. “But there are few examples in history in which the freedom men and women crave is delivered through outside intervention.”

Barack must not have read about how the French helped the Colonies defeat the British in the American Revolutionary War, or h…

81-0

There is no real way to insult many of the blackgaurds that "serve" our country in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body - Senators like Ted Kennedy and Barbara Boxer are beyond contempt. But even they must surly feel some twinge of shame when they undermine our troops and war effort with there idiotic nonbinding resolution declaring the troop increase in Iraq to be against "the national interest."

No one is worse on this than the sanctimonious hot-head and Freshman Senator Jimbo Webb from the Great State of Virginia to who's eternal shame he gave a speach after President Bush's State of the Union address that pleaded for the US to cut and run from Iraq.

"As I look at Iraq, I recall the words of former general and soon-to-be President Dwight Eisenhower during the dark days of the Korean War, which had fallen into a bloody stalemate. "When comes the end?" asked the general who had commanded our forces in Europe during World War II. And as s…

Killer Queen

At the Golden Globes Awards last night Peter Morgan (the Screenwriter for "The Queen") spoke the truth regarding the death of Diana Spencer.Picking up his award, Morgan delivered a brief but impassioned speech about the importance of public protest, talking about the days after Diana's death. "What do we have to do to get our leaders to listen to us?" he asked. "What do we have to do to get them to change tack? "In 1997 2.2 million people went on the streets of London, sleeping rough, bringing the biggest city in Europe to a standstill, so that a stubborn 70-year-old lady would fly from Aberdeen to London."What are we going to have to do when it's really important?"

So George, What's the Plan Now?

I'm not sure why I even bothered to tune into Bush's address the other night. I guess I was still holding onto some hope that reason may yet prevail with regard to US policy in Iraq. Nearly four years of critical miscalculations and what is the solution now? Send more troops? Jesus George! Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. What do we call that class? Insanity! That's right class, insanity. The leader of our country is insane! His Cabinet is insane. The Congress is insane. America is insane. The whole world has gone mad. Git yer gun Meeshaw and run for the hills! The terrorists are coming to town and they don't take kindly to the likes of you or your Christian God. What did Walter say in the Big Lebowski? "This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass, Larry. This is what happens when you FUCK a STRANGER in the ASS!" We wanted it. We deserve it. We got it.

No More National Champions

I constantly hear calls for a playoff in college football. Proponents of the playoff claim that the BCS is not accurate, the current system is "broken", smaller programs like Boise State deserve a chance, blah, blah, blah...

There are a million reasons to have playoffs for the NCAA Football teams and all of them are dead wrong. There's no need for a playoff in college football, and this years college games prove it. Look at the final AP Poll released today and think about how wrong these rankings are. 1. Florida lost to Auburn! and not by a field goal - they got beat. Yes they played a good game against Ohio State, but it was a fluke. 9 times out of 10 Ohio State wins that game. 2. Ohio State LOST to Florida - you've got to be kidding me. How in the hell does that happen? And when you get your ass kicked that badly by a team that you should have rolled over should you really be ranked #2? 3. LSU lost TWICE in the regular season to Florida and Auburn. How can they be r…
