Who are YOUR Enemies?

October 29th, 2010 No comments

Well first, let’s hear the radio broadcast – just so you know it’s real:

Now that was an interesting bit of monologue, hey? (H/T to NeoNeocon)  I’ll quote the same portion of the WaPo article Neo does – it is definitely the most concise and well, pointed bit of commentary around – and as she suggests, hop over and read the whole thing!

In a radio interview that aired Monday on Univision, President Obama chided Latinos who “sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.’ ” Quite a uniter, urging Hispanics to go to the polls to exact political revenge on their enemies – presumably, for example, the near-60 percent of Americans who support the new Arizona immigration law.

This from a president who won’t even use “enemies” to describe an Iranian regime that is helping kill U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. This from a man who rose to prominence thunderously declaring that we were notblue states or red states, not black America or white America or Latino America – but the United States of America.

This is how the great post-partisan, post-racial, New Politics presidency ends – not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a desperate election-eve plea for ethnic retribution.

Gee, the president is sooo inspiring. *aack* No, no… he’s right! Don’t go out to punish anybody in this election – go out to put it on a course… mmm, well, a course you can believe in! Get out and VOTE! Remember November!

Cheers 😀

Boycott? Behar? Why Not?

Take a look here and here. Finally, take a look at her original post and hit the ABC link… and send a nasty gram that highlights the double-standard so starkly displayed by that… umm, woman. While the management at ABC is not likely to share the values or see the hypocrisy, they are likely to notice a hit to the bottom line. Make it hurt financially if they don’t support fair play.

Cheers all.

Remember November: Act II

October 15th, 2010 No comments

Just in case you don’t drop by the site listed in the previous post, here is the Republican Governors Association’s response to the MSM’s attempt to smear the Remember November campaign. If you didn’t watch “V,” the fantasy telling of the Guy Fawkes story, or if you’re unfamiliar with the story, then some of this may not make sense… but I’m betting it will!

VOTE!!

The Republican Governors Association put up a new ad worth watching, and the site is worth the trip too! Vote!

I encourage you to watch all the videos at the “Remember November” site.   VOTE!!

My Sincerest Apologies

I’m not much of a fan of overly private/personal websites – on the other hand, when one is making excuses for failing at a job… well; offer the “reasons and explanations” prior to failing to meet a deadline! So then, without too much private information, it seems I’ve a chronic medical condition that is a little more challenging than I had anticipated. That’s my excuse for the past weeks. I’ll do my damndest to put up a post to notify before any other hospital stays in the future. Moreover, I’ll also work on trying to figure out the “automatic” posting that I know is possible – but have never tried to accomplish. Despite the excuses, reasons, and explanations I am old enough to feel an apology is in order: You all have my sincerest!

And here, because it’s so much better than I have on hand, is another great video by Andrew Klavan. ENJOY!

Runaway Slave – A Teaser…

This is a Monday Morning Quickie! Hat Tip to American Digest! If you haven’t seen this… what are you waiting for? I’m getting the movie!!!

Something on Sunday – You Pansies!

August 1st, 2010 3 comments

Seriously, are you pansies gonna cry?

Here is what I am trying to tell you: the country is not ready for conservatism.  It flirts with it, as it did with the Bush’es and Reagan, but doesn’t fight for it.  It sits in a stupor while some goofball from Chicago openly and consciously kills the constitution.  No, ladies and gentlemen, you are not the men and women your grandparents hoped you would be.  Your old man “didn’t get his seed back”, as my Dad used to say.

Virgil and I spend a fair amount of time talking about whether the real change will come along as catastrophic, or slow-burn.  It could be either, after all.  And somehow, before all this can be resolved, it will be strong folks of character, at the local level, who put it back together.  The question I have for you is, will you take your power back, before they bankrupt you completely and put you into permanent servitude?  I don’t think you will.  But you’ll probably fight like hell for marijuana. The Daily Bayonet

Huge HatTip to the American Digest! Take a trip over to the ‘Bayonet’ and read the whole article… and according to the author it was “calculated to make some o’you pansies cry, so you might as well get started now.” I’m of a mind to write something similar with some of the same kind of old pictures of family. It would be worth doing just for my daughters – because their grandparents and great grandparents were remarkable people. Maybe it’s time we take back our communities to recreate a country.

Cheers all, and

Happy Sunday 😉

The Skald’s Got a “New” Job

Klavan on the Culture

Well, I’m on a new post (a new job at the prison) which puts my days off on Thursday and Friday, and it means I’ll be adjusting my target day for posting new material. I haven’t quite decided between Friday and Monday, though Monday sounds good in terms of starting a new week for those of you that read me at work. Moreover, if the whimsy takes me, I can review the week in news! Of course, I’d like to start jumping into Susan’s Microfiction Monday now and again (cause I truly enjoy that diversion), but I can’t let that substitute for my regular posts – and me being the lazy fellow that I am…

So then, since I can’t quite decide, I’ll mess around with it for the next few weeks and see how it shakes out… In the mean time, check out Andrew Klavan at PJTV in “Klavan on the Culture.” His title this week let’s you know where he’s going with his satire… Obama’s Beach Blanket Recovery: It’s Happy, Snappy & Incredibly Crappy. So click the picture or the textual link and visit PJTV for a nice alternative to the slobbering love fest of the MSM with Obama – who knows, you might laugh. Or cry. Or get angry. Could be all three I suppose.

Cheers!
