Funny Thing

Odd, now that there is a disaster in the world, every nation is looking to the United States for aid. The same countries that criticize us for butting into other people's problems.

Some day, I would love to see the US just say no to everybody.

We don't care about the innocent people your dictator is killing, we don't care about the disaster that has destroyed part of your country!

Your on your own.

That of course will never happen, and I wouldn't actually want it to.

This is why the United States should be celebrated. Our nation truly does set out to do good things for the world. That is why I hate hearing rich, holier-than-thou actors, rockstars and the like bad mouth our great country.

It's thankless job, but if not us, who?

What Do I Say?

I just read a little article.

It stated Bush spent his campaign money more effectivly than Kerry.

I'd love to brag about the fact that GW Bush just barely outspent his competitor and still won the election.

These two chuckleheads spent $ 2.2 billion on this campaign. Over $1 billion each!

Kerry should be proud of the fact that he was able to raise almost the same amount of money as the incumbant, but embarassed to lose with such a stockpile of money!

With that kind of cash, there really is no excuse to lose to an incumbant. This year more than ever.

Bush is the son of an ex-Pres, in a war his pop didn't finish, to avoid a guy he can't catch, that changed the landscape of our greatest city forever!

How do you lose with all that ammunition?

Well, of course you could be a part of the most out of touch party there is! You could embrace the Hollywood elite, (*the new kiss of death), never take a stand, say everything everyone wants to hear to gain their trust, ironically leading the thinking people to not trust you as far as they could throw your big head!

The article stated the fact that Bush spent his money more effectivly, I could link that article, but why? To tell you what we all know? To spend money effectivly, you should elect conservatives.

Really? Who'd have thought?

Plus, I do have some of the other guys reading these posts, and I don't want to give them, the Liberals, any ideas.

I have said before that the Liberals should not be destroyed, but they should have a small place in the grand scheme of things.

Like when there are important issues in the world, they should have small amounts of power, like now.

When nothing is going on, except Bosnia and Kosovo to detract attention from your affair with an intern, we have a Clinton, that gave no-bid contracts to Halliburton in both places. How dare him! Somebody call Michael Moore-on!

This is a very important point I would like all to be aware of.

These 2 men spent over $1 billion each!

I know, these are just numbers, and when you combine contributions from all over the country, blah blah blah.

Bottom-Line= Here is a $ Billion gigolo, vs. The son of an ex-president, former owner of the Texas Rangers!

I wish I grew up in a situation that would eventually put me in a position to own a baseball team! I'd be happy to have Brian Cashman's job as the GM of the Yankees. I promise you this, as the owner of a crappy team, I would never offer A-Rod the biggest contract in MLB history! How do you build a team around that? Oh! That's right, you don't! Or if there is a 40 something year old billionairess widow out there? I'm single, and my email is on this page. I'd make a great President some day! Or at least, Senator in the meantime.

I'm just saying, both situations are out of the question for me. So whom do, or did, either of these guys truly represent?

Not me.

I agree with Bush on many things, but there are issues he will never address that concern me.

I worry that the Conservatives will never pull the world into an alternative energy scenario. How can we not engage the world in alternative energy?

I was engaged in a conversation for some time with a reader about the flat tax, and he fought me on the idea of percentages vs. actuall dollars, just like a conservative! Until he saw my side, the right answer!

And I know he is far more passionate about alternative energy, so this should be fun!

Once he see's the big picture, and your-

King's opinion

-he'll come around!

If the United States were the only nation buying oil from the Middle East, my reader would be right!

But we aren't!

It is the rest of the dumbasses that call themselves 'Superpowers' that are screwing things up!

We, the US, figured it out in the '70's,

we can't rely on Mid-East oil,

but other countries do!

So on one hand, we cut our money from going to the mid-east, but what about the China's, France's, Germany's, and etc? Are they cutting their buying?

These bunch of sissy's?


How 'bout that oil for food thing?

Of course they're not!

I am looking for all of your responses on the issue of alternative energy. Here are the thoughts.

If we find a new source of energy.

We take oil profits away from the middle east, therefore, the money out of the hands of the terrorists.

Sounds good, but.....

What about the countries that didn't take our lead in the '70's? That didn't start contracting elsewhere in the world for oil? How do we get them to stop buying middle east oil?

We also change the landscape of American business.

What happens now that we are no longer buying fuel from our own contry, or countries other than the Middle-East
, the supplier of only about 1/4 of our oil consumption!

Gas stations are out of business, yeah!

But can that corner support a little market selling over priced Fritos and microwavable burritos?

Not to mention the people that Exxon-Mobile, and the rest employ world-wide?

What affect does that have on our economy?

Let's talk!

Sorry I've Got Nothing

Sorry Fu2rman readers, I have not posted much in the last couple days.


Because the media seems to be stating facts, and not infusing their articles with their twisted views. Is it because the high paid liberal reporters are on Christmas break? Yes, the same people that criticize all of us that celebrate Christmas, and exlude other religions. Are they having their underlings write the news this week? Well why not? This is paid time off, time they gladly take.

The only interesting news is in sports. Shaq vs. Kobe on Christmas Day. And even that isn't very interesting. But, at least it has a decent story line. Check Fu2rman on sports for details.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Introducing The Fu2rman on Sports!!

Well my friends, my good buddy Bahb (pronounced Bob) Damf, has talked me into starting a separate blog to talk sports. He didn't really talk me into it as much as he suggested it. I was excited to work with such a great partner.

Now, Bahb is pretty much a Big Assed Hairy Beer Drinkin' American Mother F#@%er.

Now, let apologize for almost using obsceneties. I describe him this way as a compliment. To further compliment him...

The Fu2rman, (yours truly) has shown that he is brilliant in his sports predictions, yes, yes?

I must admit; however; after so many coversations between Bahb and I, and I am willing to open up my kingdom. Believe me, that is not a statement to be taken lightly! Just ask one of the potential Queens.

I will continue to be the soothsayer, but Bahb will school all of us on atrocities that occur every day, especially in the sad state of the sports media.

Isn't it funny, when the Fu2rman Speaks, there is issues with the mainstream media, when the Fu2rman Speaks on Sports, there is issues with the mainstream media!

Something has got to change!

The Fu2rman on Sports can be found on the link to the right, just under my profile.

How about that Kerik?

OK, this is a fun story!

Bernard Kerik to head the Homeland Security Department, good choice GW Bush. I kid, it would be so easy to blame Bush for not doing his homework on the guy, but he came highly recomended from Rudy Giuliani. I wouldn't question Rudy G! Hey, you say he's good, he's good, period. I hope Rudy doesn't have this kind a junk in his past, otherwise, who runs for president in 2008?

Let's look at a couple things, shall we?

First, I want to apologize to my fellow conservatives, I'm going to give the bad guys some help here.

If the Liberals wanted to help their cause, they should do everything they can to make Keriks affairs noble. Yes, noble! Remember the Clinton days? It's just sex, don't be so uptight. And what was a major point of weakness for Kerry in this election? Morals and values. At least Kerik had the discretion to get an apartment to conduct his affairs.

How does this guy declare banktrupcy, and then cash in stock options, (that's right, options, i.e. no money out of pocket), to the tune of $6+ million, from a company he gave the contract to sell him loads of product? This should have been the factor that eliminated Kerik from the job, this conflict of interest is inexcusable.

Kerik took his name out of the hat because he felt he may have employed a questionable alien, and not paid proper taxes. This seems like a minor infraction compared to his other indescretions.

Sad, sad, sad...

My concern with this is the Rudy Giuliani situation. Does his apology to Bush stand, or does the GOP start putting distance between them? Will Rudy get the nod from the GOP in 2008? If he had GW's support he would be a shoe-in. But did he embarrass GW enough to lose his support?

Only time will tell. But the good thing is that the Liberals are jumping on Kerik for his affairs.

Morals and values will live on, at least for now. Which will leave the Liberals behind once again.

A little racial profiling never hurt anyone...

This is an interesting article, In U.S., 44% Say Restrict Muslims.

To be fair, the article also says that 48% don't want Muslim's liberties to be restricted in any way.

Why I mention interesting, is this...

The survey showed that 27 percent of respondents supported requiring all Muslims Americans to register where they lived with the federal government. Twenty-two percent favored racial profiling to identify potential terrorist threats. And 29 percent thought undercover agents should infiltrate Muslim civic and volunteer organizations to keep tabs on their activities and fund-raising.

Only 22% said racial profiling is acceptable, but 29% want undercover agents to infiltrate and spy on them, 27% want them to register where the live with the government. That seems strange. Less people think a 25 year old Muslim male boarding an airplane should be questioned, than think spies should should infiltrate a Muslim Church, or make a family register their address with the government.

How can that be? Political correctness, the new evil.

Racial profiling has been covered in the media on a fairly regular basis, so of course less people want to say it is acceptable, even when they are willing to infringe on Muslim's civil liberties in much worse ways.

Here's how it is, compliments of the Fu2rman!

A little racial profiling is not the worst thing in the world. As I mentioned above, if I'm about to get on a plane, and there is an old great-grandmother age black woman, and a 25 year old Muslim man, don't waste your time searching grandma, and don't skip the Muslim man to be politically correct. Do your job and keep me safe. This will cause a few people to be inconvenienced, but think about this...7% more people felt ok with every Muslim being required to register their address with the government. That is totally out of control, even by my standards. Worse yet would be spying on every Muslim organization.

So what do we think of this?

A judge decided to emroider the 10 commandments on his robe.

Do you have any issues with that?

The attorney in the case he was about to hear had an issue.

And why not?

Judge McKathan told The Associated Press that he believes the Ten Commandments represent the truth "and you can't divorce the law from the truth. ... The Ten Commandments can help a judge know the difference between right and wrong."

While that may be true, why do judges these days feel the need to make a statement beyond their judgement?

I am glad to see Judge McKathan would like to be an activist, so I say....

Great! Resign, be an activist!

Until then, do your job, be a judge.

You could do a whole lot more for your cause by not creating a stir, i.e. publicity, and rendering your judgements based on your beliefs.

Judge McKathan, if you weren't so busy whoring yourself out for publicity, you could have rendered all the lopsided justice you wanted. And without opening yourself up to continuances, and possible mistrials.

Keep up the good work!

A little sports update.

Pedro Martinez is about to sign with the Mets. It seems I have heard that somewhere before?

Here's the problem. His shoulder, and the Mets appear to be willing to overlook that. The only thing between the Mets paying Pedro in the nieghborhood of $52 million for four years, is a physical. Does that physical include an MRI or not? The Mets may allow the 33 year old to skip the MRI to get the deal done. Not smart. But nobody has ever accused the Mets of being the smartest team in baseball.

If they were getting him for about $30 million as a reliever, I'd like the deal. But as I said before, Pedro will be worth considerably less in the National League.

Chargers! are you still doubting me? Tied with Indy for 3rd best record in the AFC, if they were in the NFC they would be tied for the 2nd best record.

Clippers are one game behind the Lakers. The thing is, the Clippers lose close games, the Lakers can blow a 15 point lead in the 4th quarter. The Lakers did beat the Clippers last week, by 2 whole points! If you're a betting man, take the Clippers and the points!

How's Hockey doing?

The fu2r is coming true, I told you.......

Monday, December 13, 2004

I hope I didn't give the wrong impression.

First of all, let me say I have been out of town for the last week, so I haven't posted in awhile. My apologies.

Second, in response to my last post about that emailer. I don't want anyone to think I went off on him just because he disagreed with me. What I didn't mention in the post was the fact that he had some rather unkind things to say about me personally. I have no problem with people disagreeing with me, actually I welcome it. Much of the time your disagreements help me refine my points or thoughts. So please, disagree with me.

The thing I got caught up in was that this paticular guy got personal, he said some things about yours truly that were rather offensive, (I will refrain from mentioning them specifically). That is why I may have been a tad carried away in the moment. Besides, I could have said worse, as he did. I wanted to address his disagreements, as well as tell him what a foolish man he is.

I must admit, it did feel good to call him a chucklehead and tell him his views are stupid.

But, I don't want to exclude the rest of you that could actually make some of the same points intelligently and start a fun exchange of ideas. Just don't mention my mother, or say such derogatory things about me personally.

Thank you.....

Now, let's talk.

Thank you for you emails

I have been overwhelmed with emails, which is great, but please feel free to comment on the blog as well. I welcome your comments, some of you have seen your emails turn into posts on the blog.

Wouldn't it be fun if the rest of us saw the comment that inspired the post?

I think so.

So, please, sign on, leave a comment. That way I can respond directly to you.

Have I embarrassed anybody yet by name?

No. And I will do my best not to, except that ridiculous thought that Bush is a bad president because...

"...I should forget about retiring because I'll have no social security. and ...4 more years of war, which, believe it or not our military people don't want..."

I will embarrass him now, but not by name, he is out of his mind.

I am 34 years old, I have been hearing that I will not have any Social Security benefits since I was 16. That's more than half my life.

Thank you chucklehead for pointing that out! I bet next you're going to tell me that smoking is bad for you! WOW, another great realization!

Thanks! Damnit! Who'd'a thought!


4 more years of war?

See my link to Prager earlier, or else, I guess you're right, War Never Solved Anything! Let the holocautst happen, leave those Nazi's alone! We don't want a war, allow genocide, we don't want to get involved.

Did you hear about Saddams ex-prisoners comment regarding Fullujah? The common quote, (aside from the fact that they did not lose body parts, get electricuted, or killed) was, I wish my torture included getting naked with an American girl!

Hmm....So damn us. Our media must be right, and my emailer too, under GW Bush, AKA Hitler, we are in for a...

a future of hatred against America.

Well so be it, I bet we were pretty hated by the Nazis! So do you care about that?

I don't.

Like I said, if you comment here on the blog, I won't embarrass you, unless you are an embarrassment to yourself.

I'm sure I just lost a reader, oh well, he is an absoulute fool. As long as you come at me with an inteligent thought, I will respect it.

If you are unsure if your thought is inteligent, go ahead and email me.

See, I didn't call him by name, you can say stupid things and still be anonymous...

All in the name of inclusiveness!? Part 2

A good friend of mine sent me this article by Dennis Prager.

Blue America: The land of the easily offended

There are some briliant points made by Dennis...

If you're one that doesn't like to go and read the whole article, it starts out showing opposites, liberal-conservative, red state-blue state, secular-religious, and boils it down for sake of this article to the easily offended & the not so easily offended.

I am continually astounded at how often members of the audience (usually liberal women) will say they are offended by something I said, when what they really mean is that they don't agree with me.

This is a point that needs to be addressed. I propose that everytime anybody says they are offended, we all ask "are you offended, or do you disagree?" Reading this fact, understanding this fact is not enough, we need to act. I for one, will do this from now on.

It is most unlikely that conservative men or women speak that way – saying, "I am offended" – when they hear liberal speakers.

For one thing, conservatives are so used to being labeled as stupid, bigoted, ignorant, racist, homophobic, sexist, insensitive and intolerant that it is almost impossible to offend them. Moreover, the culture does not allow them to feel offended, since they are not an officially designated minority.

So true, you never hear a white person, a Christian, or a conservative say they are offended. Let's take the example of Linda Ronstadt, she said that when she finds out there is a Fundamental Christian or Republican in her audience it ruins it for her. She meant Fundamentalist, but nobody ever said she knew what she was talking about. Why was there no outrage at this! Imagine if you will, she replaced the words Christian or Republican for the word Jew or Black or Gay. All hell would have broken loose, and she would be Public Enemy #1. Oh well, her relevance to the music world is comparable to...well nothing, who cares what she says anyway?

...take the widely held liberal slogan "War is not the answer." It is pure irrationality. War has ended more evil than anything the left has ever thought of. In the last 60 years alone, it ended Nazism and the Holocaust; it saved half of Korea from genocide; it kept Israel from national extinction and a second Holocaust; it saved Finland from becoming a Stalinist totalitarian state; and according to most of the people who put "War is not the answer" stickers on their bumpers, it saved Bosnian Muslims from ethnic cleansing.

Every so often I read something and say, wow I wish I had written that, this is one of those times.

Liberal Jews and non-Jews claim that "Merry Christmas" offends Jews and other non-Christians. That 90 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas is of no importance to the easily offended.

This would have been a nice addition to last nights post.

Liberal American Indian spokesmen and other liberals regularly tell us how offensive Indian names of sports teams are. The latest polls show that most Indians have no problem with such names, but liberals are still offended on their behalf. To make the point of how offensive the name "Indians" is for the Cleveland baseball team, one liberal caller once asked me, "How would you feel if a team were named 'Jews'?" I told him that it would be a great day in Jewish history – for 3,000 years, Jews have been looking for fans.

Dennis Prager is great. Thanks for the article...

Fu2r of sports

Alright already, because the response to sports was so possitive, I may spend some time each week to give you a glimpse...

For some reason nobody had a problem with Hockey not being a sport, or The Clippers finishing ahead of the Lakers, and I'm guessing nobody cares about baseball yet, so FOOTBALL.

Believe it or not, I'm almost going to take Philly out of the Superbowl. The Eagles have a tendancy to choke, and the pure jackass factor that Terrell Owens brings to the field makes him a target every weekend. Notice, out of 47 points on Sunday, T.O. is credited with only 6 of them, he caught 3 less passes, and only gained only 5 more PASSING yards than his RUNNING BACK, Brian Westbrook, who scored 3 RECEIVING TD's. The NFC just sucks so bad, who's going to beat them? The records are all over the place, any team that can put together a decent late season run is a good bet for the Superbowl. Seriously, if the Eagles can't win it this year, they SUCK MORE THAN ANY TEAM IN HISTORY!

AFC-- it all boils down to San Diego, Pittsburgh, New England and Indy. Indy sucks against any kind of defense, they'll drop unexpectedly early, they have lost 3 games so far! Pittsburgh, rookie QB, no rookie QB has EVER won a Superbowl, and if you're Bill Cowars, are you going to put Tommy Maddux in the big game? Not to mention, let's be honest, they looked really bad against Jacksonville.

So it's New England vs. San Diego. Easy money, San Diego! Why? It is the classic QB story, Drew Brees is fighting for his job. Think about Jake Delholme last year. SD has a great run defense, so Corey Dillon is shout down, and he doesn't create much of a run threat. Deion Branch is back. Tom Brady's favorite receiver in the Old Superbowl days! Well, he's been back for 3 weeks, he hasn't been worth a damn, he has less than 170 yards, and only one visit to the endzone. That's in 3 weeks, that sucks!

Hey! you know who knows the way to the endzone?! I'll give you two names! Antonio Gates, and LaDainian Tomlinson! Oh they would be Chargers, hmm....Chargers my friends! That would be your AFC Champs!

Chargers vs. Eagles, or the team that embarrasses them.

Chargers win....period.

And that is not because they are my favorite team. I think I spelled it out for you!

There is your look into the, watch....!

Amazing Story for the Season

This is a wonderful story if you have a few minutes, it is a must read. It takes my last post and puts it over the fence, uhh, and then some...

All in the name of inclusiveness!? Part 1

This is going to be an ongoing topic over the next few days. There are a few topics I have in regards to political correctness. In the interest of not posting a one million word essay, I'm going to break it up into a few parts.

Warning: I will not pretend to be politically correct in writting on this topic, I will write with respect for my fellow man, but that's it.

The idea of being politically correct during the holidays has become more than absurd.

You had better not have a Christmas Parade!

Denver found that out. I have no problem what-so-ever calling it a Holiday Parade, afterall, it is the Holidays for Christians, Jews, Non-Believers and Africans, (even though Kwanzaa is more about separating Blacks from Whites, but I'll still respect the holiday, more power to you). But when a church in Denver wanted to enter the Denver Parade of Lights and sing Christmas caroles, they of course, were rejected.

"Our policy, which we have applied consistently for years, is to not include religious or political messages in the parade --in the interest of not excluding any group," said Jim Basey, the president of the Downtown Denver Partnership.

I'm fine with no political messages, but why exclude to include? That just sounds stupid, did you hear yourself say that? Did you cringe as that left your lips? Did you hide under you desk the next day when you read it? Of course you did. You're not actually stupid, you just said something stupid.

Susan Rogers, with the partnership said that no overtly religious symbols are allowed in the parade and that means participants can't carry "Merry Christmas" signs and can't sing traditional Christmas hymns. However Basey seemed to contradict her in a later statement when he said, "The parade includes performances of Christmas songs, and parade participants saying 'Merry Christmas,' 'Happy Hanukkah,' and other holiday greetings."

Maybe Basey is just stupid, or these poor spokespeople don't even know what's going on, gotta be politically correct, gotta include all, but we can only do that by excluding everybody, ohhh, confussion...

See, absurd!

I have a way you can include all and exclude none!

Don't talk to eachother, and cancel all celebrations!

Otherwise, get over it! Join in, learn something about another faith. I had a Jewish freind when I was a young boy, my family spent one night at his house to learn a little about Hanukkah. Unfortunately, I was young, Catholic, and didn't care about either religion. Today, I'd be much more willing to learn.

Governor Schwarzenegger got it right.

Update from the Governor's Office
November 30, 2004

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Note the word Christmas. He decided he would not call it a Holiday tree, it's a Christmas Tree!

Why does any faith have an issue with the Christmas Tree?

What does the Tree have to do with the birth of Jesus Christ? Nothing! Christians just adopted this idea as part of a celebration. Santa Clause? Same thing!

Frankly, everything Christmas has become, is far removed from Christianity!

So everybody is free to do as the Christians have done,(or don't, if you prefer), adopt this idea--

Buy a Christmas tree, pretend there is a Santa Clause (to ensure your children are not naughty), buy a bunch of presents, have an excuse to get the whole family together for a feast, so you can celebrate a Christmas that has nothing
to do Christianity, the birth of Jesus, or anything religious! Unless shopping is a religous expirience for you.

If you must still celebrate the Christian part, or the Jewish part, great, you are a better person than I. I love the idea of having all religions represented in any holiday celebration, parade, tree lighting ceremony, or whatever.

Do it all at once, one celebration, include all religions, you know, actually embrace them. Imagine that, inclusivenes, by including, not excluding.

Seriously, how hard is this!!!

A Sports section??

Ok, it was suggested I add sports to my various rantings. I don't want to spend a lot of time doing this, so if you have specific sports questions, email them to I may answer them here or reply to your email.

However, because my adoring public asked, I'll give you a glimpse into the fu2r...

1) San Diego Chargers defeat the Eagles in the Superbowl. I guarentee nobody else is saying that!

2) LA Clippers finish with a better record than the LA Lakers. Sorry Kobe, you showed time and time again that you couldn't win without Shaq. Every time he was out hurt with his bad wittle piggy, your team lost.

3a) Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez plays in New York next year....Not so fast, he's with the Mets. His little meeting with the Boss was just a ploy to get the Sox and Mets to up their offer. It worked. No way is Pedro going to share a clubhouse with Jorge Posada, and I'll take Jorge over Pedro any day.

3b) Pedro is still unhittable in his first few innings, but after 4, maybe into 5, he's finished, hence not worth the money. He should become a closer to extend his career. Plus, we saw how worthless he was at the plate, as a National Leaguer, he's gotta hit, and that's going to get him yanked in close games. Again, where else are you gonna hear this?

4) Yanks do sign pitchers Carl Povano & Randy Johnson. They go for Carlos Beltran, and make him a very rich man. They don't have a choice, they need a center fielder. Giambi's contract will be voided (that whole steroid thing) so they'll bring Bernie Williams in to play first base.

5) Hockey! Hmmm. Is that still a sport? Was it ever?

There you go, a little glimpse into the fu2r
of sports.

Past tense.

OK speaking of tense.

I have been getting tense about the contenplation of the hatred between the left and the right. I don't care when, what, who, why, where, whatever... it obviously exists!

How about this, maybe the Right should prop up the Left in their time of need?

CUANAS opened my eyes on this one. I would have instinctively said kill the the left and be done with it.But, I have to admit, I am considering a Hybrid Automobile. Why? I want to decrease the demand for Middle East Fuel, therefore, decreasing the profit for terrorists. Pretty liberal, huh? There are a few other other liberal ideas I agree with, but that's for another time.

At this point in our history the end of the two party system would be devastating.

Here are just a couple reasons.

W. Bush is a little too religious for my taste. Is that the kind of man any of us want running the country unopposed, or even virtuly unopposed?

I don't think so.

Why won't W put together a plan for alternate fuel?

I think we are going to eventually have to look to the Left for that. And when that time comes, and we can stop, or even cut in half, our consumption of Middle East oil, what happens to their power? It goes away. There is of course a little more to this. We don't get all of our oil from them but other countries rely almost solely on the Middle East. We would have to sell or give these other countries our new technology, blah, blah, blah. I'm not going too deeply into this now because it's still a work in progress.

Actually, no it isn't, and that is my point!
Under this Administration, it won't happen.

So we do need the left...

Oh yikes...I totally shuddered when I wrote that.

Brokaw says "Good Bye"

I have not been a huge fan of the mainstream media for a while now, but, I must say Brokaw really suprised me just before the election. Brokaw didn't toss Kerry a bunch of softball questions,

Brokaw:...if you had been president, Saddam Hussein would still be in power. Because you...

Kerry: Not necessarily at all.

Brokaw: But you have said you wouldn't go to war against him...

Kerry: That's not true. Because under the inspection process, Saddam Hussein was required to destroy those kinds of materials and weapons.

Brokaw: But he wasn't destroying them...

Brokaw wouldn't let up, and Kerry got more and more flustered. Brokaw may have helped put Bush over the top right at the end. He unlike Rather, had the integrity to look for the truth. This interwiew is not a current event, but it is a good read. Interesting to see Brokaw pick Kerry apart, without being rude or offensive. If you remember the audio, it is even better.

Tom Brokaw says good night for the last time, but not without one little dig on Dan Rather,

Brokaw: "Whatever the story I had only one objective - to get it right."

That is great. Thanks Mr Brokaw.

When did the Left and Right start hating eachother with such intensity.

I keep hearing that the Left is being unfair in their hatred of Bush, but, he deserves it because the Right was so tough on Clinton.

So the Right started this?

In '92 I was in working in retail, the time of Clintons campaign. All he kept saying was how the economy is so bad, recession, Bush bad, blah, blah, blah. Bush made one big mistake. The economy had a little dip, so like Reagan would have done, he told us "don't worry, everything is fine, go out and spend some money."

What I noticed, working on commission, was the more Clinton kept talking, the less money I made, and the worse the recession became. I have always believed Clinton was able to talk people into that recession, therefore his presidency.

I've had converstations with my friend about how when he was yonger he remembers the Democrats criticizing Reagan, even though he was accomplishing things they claimed to want. I don't remember that. The first election I was old enough to vote was Bush in '88.

So it was the Left after all that started it?

I doubt it, I'm sure others can comment on how badly politicians act towards the opposition as far back as there have been politicians.

One definition of politics the science of government.

Then why are there politics in the workplace? Because it also means make yourself look good while you destroy your opposition.

Since I can remember, this is how it's been, and it's not going away.

However, based on the last campaign, I think Bush ran a much more ethical campaign. Yes he criticized Kerry for taking both sides of an issue, and his voting record in congress. But those are facts, and didn't Kerry say let's stick to the facts? Bush could have been much tougher, God knows, Kerry gave him enough to go on.

This is funny...

This is not a big deal yet, but let's start paying attention now, because we all know Hillary Clinton will be running for President in about 3 1/2 years.

This is form Michelle Malkin, she was actually talking about the opening of the Clinton Library. Little Rock changed Confederate Blvd. to Springer Blvd. in honor of black leader Horace Springer. Anyway, at the end of the article she links to this....

Hillary tells another fib...

"Clinton's claim that Hillary was named in honour of Sir Edmund Hillary, the New Zealander who conquered Mount Everest,"

"But the story has a fundamental problem: Edmund Hillary reached Everest's peak on May 29, 1953, nearly seven years after the infant Hillary arrived in the world."

Yes, it's pretty amusing to hear these little things Hillary lies about, but just watch, there will be plenty more. She seems to have no moral issue using anything, even the 9/11 tradgedy for her own political gain, (Chelsea was going to jog around the WTC, but changed her mind, -see I'm a caring mother! ) even if it is not true.

Feel free to forward them as they come in, if we can play even a small part in ensuring we don't have another Clinton presidency, I'll feel I've done a service.
