A Party to Believe In?

Despite President Obama's warning to Republican leaders not to listen to Rush Limbaugh if they want to accomplish anything, Republicans this week have made two extremely smart moves. Number One: Every Republican in the House of Representatives voted against Obama's "stimulus" bill, although the bill was passed by the Democratic majority the Republicans stood firm against this pork-laden bill. Together as one man they stood up and told Obama: this is completely on you, we'll be here to pick up the pieces when it fails.
Number Two: Just this afternoon former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele was elected to the RNC chairmanship, this will hopefully mark the return of the party to its Conservative past. And for extra credit we get to taunt the Democrats now, why? Michael Steele is black, last time I checked the "Black Party" was run by a rich white boy from the state of Vermont...and yes Mr. Obama "we'll trump you on that!"

Apparently the old saying that "Congress doesn't get it" is truer than ever, the very fact that the House missed passing the $700 billion bailout bill by only a 228-205 margin proves that these elected officials don't give a darn what the American people want. When 70% (and I'm willing to bet even more) of the American people disapprove of something it seems like Congress should listen and even more importantly the President should.
I was disappointed when Bush tried to get an amnesty bill for illegal aliens passed, any respect I had for the man has disappeared after he announced his support for this bailout bill. President Bush must believe that his legacy isn't tarnished enough or perhaps he has just gone mad.
While I was happy that the bill went down in defeat I was disheartened to hear both Democrat and Republican leaders announce that they will try again. My take on this bailout plan? The banks made the mistakes let the banks fix them, if they can't then they deserve to crash, maybe a depression is what this country needs.

On the plus side I heard of another bill introduced to the House, this one sponsored by Tom Tancredo (Republican Representative from Colorado). The bill? This bill would evict the United Nations from the United States, sell all property of the UN to the highest bidder and use that money to help pay off the national debt and also bar the UN from buying any land in the future.
“The U.N. has coddled brutal dictators, anti-Semites, state sponsors of terrorism, and nuclear proliferators – while excluding democratic countries from membership and turning a blind eye to humanitarian tragedies and gross violations of human rights around the globe,” Tancredo said. “The U.N.’s continued presence in the United States is an embarrassment to our nation, and the time has come for this ineffective organization to pack its bags and hit the road.”
Way to go, Tom. Now here's a man who should be President!

McCain/Palin '08

I haven't said much on the upcoming presidential election since it became obvious that John McCain was going to be the Republican candidate. Indeed I wasn't even really paying attention to the coverage until the convention kicked off. My first reaction to McCain's selection as our candidate was one of outrage that this was the best we could do, I having voted for Romney in the primary, a vote which if I could I would withdraw. All I can say is I acted on the intelligence available at the time, having lately rethought my position it occurred that out of the electable candidates (that removes Brownback, Hunter and Tancredo from the list) perhaps McCain was the best we could do. While I do not leap at the prospect of having President McCain I most definitely shrink from the idea that some bloggers including my brother seem to have that McCain is no better than Obama, McCain is not the candidate I would have chosen but as he is our candidate and Obama is the Democrats I will be voting for McCain for two reasons.
1) The most important reason, McCain unlike Obama is a patriotic American, I may not agree with things he has done in the past and perhaps not agree with things he will do in future but there is no question that he is patriotic. Obama on the other hand is a socialist, rascist hate-monger (yeah I said it) and will sink this country, literally, if Obama is elected the United States of America will cease to exist and basically become errand boy for the UN and the rest of the world (when they aren't blowing us up that is).
2) McCain's running mate. McCain shocked the Democrats and their watchdog media by announcing Sarah Palin as his running mate. Not only did he shock them but he energized the conservative Republicans (which make up the majority in the party) into supporters.Governor Palin's record speaks for itself but the thing which gained my support the most is the way the liberal media hounds are trying every tactic to smear her name and reputation, if she was really "unqualified" and "unfit for the job" then they wouldn't say anything. Liberals know she is a threat and they are scared, for the first time since the McCain vs. Obama race began the liberals are scared of losing and they have reason to be.

"The Best Man For The Job"

UPDATE (Jan. 20)
Hunter has dropped out of the race. Therefore Mitt Romney is now the candidate of choice.

After long deliberation (some might say too long) I have arrived at my choice in the Republican primary. As long as he is still on the ballot on Super Tuesday (February 5th) my vote will go to... Duncan Hunter.
The first argument that others would make against voting for Hunter is that he has no chance of winning the nomination and I will be wasting my vote. My answer is, true, barring a miracle, Hunter will not get the nomination, but I will not be wasting my vote, I believe that Hunter is the best candidate and am voting on that litmus test, electability is the last thing I considered when reviewing the candidates.
If Hunter is not on the ballot on Super Tuesday then I will have to choose someone else, but I can guarantee that I will not be voting for Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani or Mike Huckabee. Romney is most likely my second choice barring another entrant before the 5th.

Dead and Famous...or just DEAD?

Once again the news headlines are filled with words of death and violence. Once again liberals will scream about gun control. Unless you are completely cut off from the outside world you will have heard how a teenage gunman killed 8 people in a mall before turning the gun on himself. Experts and analysts have gone back and forth over the teenager's motives. They claim depression or just hatred of the world in general.
My view is quite different and I believe correct, the gunman wanted his ten seconds of fame whether he was around to see it or not. How do I come to this conclusion? From his suicide note. In it he told family and friends they would be better off without him in their lives, "I've been a piece of (expletive) my entire life it seems this is my only option." He then changes tone, "Just think tho I'm gonna be (expletive) famous." There in the words of the killer himself is the reason he did what he did.
If the media would quit giving these shooters so much attention I believe the majority of public shootings would stop. Fame seems to have been the motive behind this shooter and the shooters at many other places including Virginia Tech. So message to the MSM( mainstream media), "Don't give this guy the attention he wanted, then others will realize that the only thing they're going to be is dead, not dead and famous. Now give us some real news, and I don't mean about Britney Spears' latest binge or Paris Hilton's Chihuahua."

A Bear Named Muhammed

Sudanese Muslims are in an uproar over an incident regarding a British-born teacher, in Khartoum, who allowed her students to name their class teddy bear "Muhammad". Apparently this is an insult to the Islamic "prophet" and the Muslim population is not going to sit still over this. They want the teacher executed, perhaps President Bush could remind them that they are supposed to be a "religion of peace" again?
If anything this incident should open people's eyes to the real Islam, a religion driven by fear and death. Any honest scholar of history will tell you that the reason Islam spread so fast was because "infidels" were given two choices convert or die. Islam was never about peace, is not about peace and never will be about peace, just ask the Israelis.
The teacher has been imprisoned for 15 days and faces deportation back to the United Kingdom, hopefully the government won't give in to the mobs, but you never know. Just a quick question to any Muslims out there, what is so offensive about Teddy Bears?

Note: I did come up with an answer to that question but I would prefer not to have my name put on the next Jihad blacklist.

Demublicans or Republocrats?

Once again the hypocrisy of Republicans is revealed. Idaho Senator Larry Craig pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in an airport men's room, the undercover cop who witnessed the scene described Craig's actions as solicitation of sex. Craig is now backpedaling and saying the he only pleaded guilty because he wanted the whole thing to go away, the Boise newspaper Boise Statesman was conducting an investigation into Craig's "sexual orientation", for the past eight months.
Several Republican senators have called for Craig’s resignation and I agree…call the newspapers I agree with John McCain! If any Democrat was caught in such an act (not that he would be, the Democrats have experience avoiding detection, and if they are can always bribe the witnesses) I would expect nothing less, which definitely means that Senator Craig shouldn't get off the hook.
I’m beginning to think that the Republican Party needs to start over from the ground up; too many Republicans are indeterminable from Democrats except that when Republicans are caught it makes headlines, Democrats tend to have their stories buried on page 12 right next to Soap Opera reviews. Republicans are becoming more and more like Democrats, which is why they lost the 2006 elections, voters couldn’t tell the difference except that the Democrats ostensibly were more conservative. Republicans spend taxpayers’ money like Democrats-take bribes like Democrats-are as corrupt and immoral as Democrats-in my book it’s starting to become a no-party nation.
President Bush’s best response to this could be borrowed from Warren Harding, “I have no trouble with my enemies. I can take care of my enemies in a fight. But my d--n friends, they’re the ones who keep me walking the floor nights.”

Unless you live in a cave or are deaf and blind you no doubt know that this past Saturday the last in the Harry Potter series came out. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows is perhaps the most hyped-up book since...well, since the last Harry Potter. Posters advertising it are everywhere, "Will you be with Harry at the end?" and various other slogans were (and are) plastered all over. Yahoo news and AOL news ran endless stories on everything from supposed pirated copies to fans' guesses as to the ending of this series. I (as much as it may shock some of you) have read two of the Harry Potter books (Chamber of Secrets & Goblet of Fire), and while I didn't come across anything that I particularly objected to and I must admit that they were well-written and fairly interesting (to fantasy readers) I didn't understand what all the fuss was about. Many claim that they are anti-Christian and no true Christian should read them, others claim that they are in fact "Christian" books (in the sense that they endorse Christian truths). I found no evidence that supports one claim above the rest, the books in themselves seem to be fairly harmless, a good story with some good ideals. My main problem with this series is the cult-like following that they have caused to spring up, kids and adults who are so obsessed with them that they dress up and stand in lines for hours (sometimes days) to see the movies or buy the books; and the obsession for witchcraft which has swept the world. Another is the controversy they cause between Christians, some are accused of being narrow minded because they don't read or let their kids read the books or see the movies, others are accused of being too tolerant because they read the books and love the movies, I prefer to think that your response to Harry Potter is your own business, there most probably is no right answer. Some families may like the adventures of the boy wizard others may be wary of it, but in the end it is a personal choice, but just because someone doesn't subscribe to your view doesn't mean you should beat them over the head with it. The reason that Harry Potter has grown to this dimension is most probably due to the controversy among Christians, case-in-point: The DaVinci Code, until the church began reacting to its ridiculous claims it was relatively small, the very fact that there was controversy made lots of people, including Christians, read the book or see the movie. So it is with Harry Potter, let's hope that now the end has come (ostensibly) we can go back to normalcy.
