White Guilt, Black Racism & Obama

Another blogger whose way with words is far superior to mine:

Conservative Beach Girl
... I'll ask the question: Should Obama get a free pass on judgments in character matters BECAUSE he has black skin?
The answer is NO. He who would be president of the United States must walk the gauntlet all others have walked - bloodied and unbowed - before him.

Affirmative action does not reach as far as the presidency...

Should Obama not be crowned the president, his wife will say, "The ugly white man did it."

But she will be wrong; she will have no farther to look for the cause of his defeat than to herself, to Jeremiah Wright, to William Ayers, and to Tony Rezko along with Louis Farrakhan and most prominently, she must face the ugly truth that his defeat will have been brought about by Obama himself.

It is time for white Americans to get over the spoons full of "white guilt" that have been the gruel served cold to us since our infancy for acts of slavery perpetrated upon …

A Guy Named Joe

From an on-line newsgroup:
Let's See ---- A Guy named Joe, who happens to be a plumber withambitions for a bigger business, questioned and challenged a Guy named Barack, who happens to be running for President of the USA/Leader of the Free World.

And within 24 hours the Media has given us more information about Joe's life than they've given us about Barack's life in the past 18 months.

Thanks to a diligent press corps, we now know about Joe's professional licensing status, his income tax situation, his employment history, his domestic squabbles, his voting record, everything associated with his personal identity; his education. It's probably been reported somewhere whether he wears boxers or briefs.

Thanks to a lazy press corps we still don't know:

what grades Obama made in college;
how he got into Harvard;
when he met Bill "the bomber" Ayers;
when he stopped doing illegal drugs;
his medical history;
whether he still smokes cigarettes;

Fallen Hero: Spec. Stephen Fortunado

H/T to Wake Up America

This was a blog entry on Army Specialist Stephen Fortunato's blog, dated Aug. 30, 2008, and was sent to the Boston Globe by his mother, Elizabeth "Betty" Crawford.

From Boston Globe:If I may … I'd like to say something....Just to get it out there so it is clear. To all the pampered and protected Americans who feel it is their duty to inform me that I am not fighting for their freedom, and that i am a pawn in Bush's agenda of greed and oil acquisition: Noted, and [expletive deleted] You.

I am not a robot. i am not blind or ignorant to the state of the world or the implications of the "war on terrorism." i know that our leaders have made mistakes in the handling of a very sensitive situation, but do not for one second think that you can make me lose faith in what we, meaning America's sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers in uniform are doing. I am doing my part in fighting a very real enemy of the United States, i.e. Taliban,…

Fallen Hero: Cpl Justin Cooper

Marine Cpl. Justin Cooper of Eupora, Mississippi, was killed in combat in Afghanistan on May 18, 2008.

He was 22 years old.
Cpl. Cooper’s father, Alan Cooper, said he was told by Marine officials that his son died after he was shot in the chest, just above his body armor, during a fire fight.Being a Marine was something Cooper had always dreamed about, his father said.After he graduated from Eupora High School in 2004, Justin Cooper attended Holmes Community College for one semester before enlisting in the Marines.
It was Christmas Eve when he told his father he was going to be a Marine.He served two tours in Iraq, rising quickly through the ranks. Alan Cooper said he was told his son was one of the best scout snipers the Marines had seen in decades.

Requiescat In Pace, Marine

Mocking Michelle

Pat Buchanan asks, "What if SNL mocked Michelle Obama?"

Well, the answer is easy.

They won't because:

# 1 she's married to the Obamessiah, therefore Untouchable.

# 2 there would be a huge outcry from the Looney Left about hate crimes.

# 3 it would violate the media double standard.

# 4 there's nothing funny about her.


Dogs of War: Cooper

From Army Times:

The first military working dog team killed in action together since the beginning of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were laid to rest together July 18, 2007.

Cpl. Kory D. Wiens, 20, of the 94th Mine Dog
Detachment, 5th Engineer Battalion, 1st Engineer Brigade of Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., and his partner, Cooper, a Labrador Retriever, were killed July 6 by an IED while on patrol in Muhammad Sath, Iraq.

The cremated remains of Kory and Cooper were buried together in Wiens’ hometown of Dallas, OR, at the request of his family.

Hans Freimarck, the military working dog coordinator for the Army Dog Program said he didn’t know the last time a canine team was killed together, but Wiens and Cooper were the first for operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

Requietum En Pacem, Soldiers

Vote For Josh!!

Highlights from Joel Mowbray'spost at Townhall:

"When Josh Mandel got a call from the Marines last year asking him to return voluntarily to Iraq, he had much more to contemplate than when he first enlisted in 2000. He had just been elected to the Ohio state legislature. He ultimately decided to serve a second tour in Iraq in Iraq “because I didn’t join the Marine Corps to say no when my country called,” Mr. Mandel explains. ... Now he has been forced to deal with the politics of that decision. The opponent in his tough re-election fight, trial attorney Bob Belovich, is attacking Mr. Mandel’s service, arguing that he abandoned voters. Mr. Belovich’s wife, Barbara, acknowledged in an interview for this column that she has told voters that Mr. Mandel “went AWOL” by fighting in Iraq. > NF: I find it interesting that when Hilary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama left their Senate seats empty for two years to pursue personal political ambition they were not accused of being AW…

He Is John Galt

John Galt is a character in Ayn Rand's classic novel Atlas Shrugged.

This John Galt is Keith Arnold, September 24, 2008:

I Am John Galt
"I have had it up to my eyeballs with the ever-growing government, the nanny-state, the collectivism, the whole world demanding more and more from the producers. I am done with the corrupt politicians, the slackers, the deadbeats, and all the looters and moochers.I am sick of a government which has drifted from its early Constitutional foundation of limited central government and great individual freedom, and become a bloated behemoth consuming 40 percent of our economy and hungry for more. I am finished with out-of-control political correctness and its attendant thought police outlawing truth in order to cater to those who would destroy us.HERE I STAND. I AM JOHN GALT.Whether the world around me likes it or not, I will put my foot down and insist on personal responsibility and accountability. I will tell my government to take its hands off …

Let's Get Pertinent

I was working on a post about how Joe Wurzelbacher aka Joe-the-Plumber was being used by the MSM and the Dummycrats to divert attention from Obama's revelation that he wants to "spread the wealth around".

But then I read Rachel Lucas' post

which put my puny words to shame. I cannot improve on this:

"First, Ace of Spadesasks a very pertinent question:why not “vet” all the “journalists” just like they’ve “vetted” Joe the plumber? No seriously. Why not? Why not put all their tax, voting, divorce, and personal information all over the internet?

I suppose the answer is that “journalists” don’t actually ASK IMPORTANT QUESTIONS like Joe the plumber did. They don’t get Obama to say what he really thinks like Joe the plumber did.
Assholes. I mean it. Anyone who has published anything shitty about this individual is an ASSHOLE. Joe Wurzelbacher has nothing to do with anything and yet you’re crucifying the guy instead of asking important, meaningful questions…

The Temple of the Goracle

I happened upon a new website today:

The Temple of the Goracle

an homage (NOT) to the Ignobel prize-winning, faux-documentary-making, global-warming hypocrite Al Gore, known as The Goracle to his cultified mindless minions (Gorebiciles?).

Aren't we just so glad that The Goracle invented the Internet?


How Do You Spell Socialism?

O B A M A

Barack Hussein Obama's true color is beginning to come through ...

On camera at a campaign stop in Ohio, a plumber asked, "Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?"

Barky responded:"It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success too. My attitude is that if the economy's good for folks from the bottom up, it's gonna be good for everybody ... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."Spread the wealth around ...
Taking from the rich, the almost-rich, and well, anybody who is actually contributing something to this country and giving it to those who have sat around for generations taking and complaining that it is not enough while breeding more generations of takers and complainers ... and to those who are not even citizens of this country but want their share, too.

UNBELIEVABLE


H/T to The Jawa Report

Al Gore's New Low

Al Gore, the man whose previous LOWS included:

_ trying to disenfranchise the military vote in 2000;

_ refusing to concede the 2000 election, throwing the entire country into turmoil, causing a rift that has since widened into a chasm;

_ exercising an incredible amount of hypocrisy while preaching energy conservation and carbon footprint bullshit;

is NOW urging

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE





"When the [Duval County, FL] canvassing board announced that the ballots of 149 soldiers, sailors, and airmen had been disqualified, a pair of jubilant Gore lawyers exchanged high-fives.

A Republican, visibly shaken by this sight, demanded to know how they could celebrate the disenfranchisement of U.S. military members risking their lives around the world.

One of the Gore lawyers glibly replied, "A win's a win."
