Random Thoughts

I always think there's no way people can be so incredibly stupid; then there's the Climate Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.

I wonder what happened to the photographer that took the pictures of the "stranded" polar bears? I hope she's alive and well after she said that it wasn't her intention to make a statement about man made global warming. Because you know what happens if you cross the tree-hugging left.

Why do so many people supposedly hate America, especially Europeans? After all, who was it that liberated their continent from the evils of Nazism, and later Communism?

People need to wake up and stop thinking socialism and government control is the answer to all their ills.

How appropriate is it that the symbol of the Democrat Party is a jackass?

I really like Ann Coulter I think she's brilliant and a great wit. One of my favorite quotes by her is, "You can always tell what liberals are up to by what they accuse conservatives of doing." So true Ann my dear, so true.

If I had a huge amount of money, I'd give a lot of it to whoever hacked into the emails of East Anglia University and in so doing, caused the Climategate scandal. Whoever you are, God bless you.

I really miss the days when the United States of America was a self-sufficient nation that manufactured most of the things we need.

I still can't believe people can be so incredibly stupid, until voters in Minnesota put third rate comedian Al Franken into the U.S. Senate. Now I'm a believer.

There's a difference between a liberal calling a conservative stupid and a conservative calling a liberal stupid.
The conservative's correct and the liberal is wrong, as usual.

Christmas doesn't have the allure for me that it once had.

Why is it okay for atheists to express their views in the public square, but Christians can't put a Nativity Scene up without "offending" someone?

Nine Lawyers in black robes have no right to determine what's right for the rest of us.

There is no "separation of church and state" in the U.S. Constitution.

People have said that I'm a "tyrant" for not allowing negative comments about what I say on my blog. I'm no tyrant, I have no control over your life. I'm not a  bureaucrat or government official. If you don't like what I say, start your own blog, no one's forcing you to read mine.

Hey Kids, Let's Tell the Enemy What Our Strategy Is!

I really think, (notice I said think and not "believe") that Obama doesn't want to win the War on Terrorism. Why else would he broadcast to the world that he's sending an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan and then say he's going to bring them all home in 2 years? (Just in time for his re-election campaign.)  Is it possible to prosecute a sitting president for treason? Or is what he did not considered treason anymore since we're to be humble and apologetic to those who want to kill us?  (Is an apology and humility tour of the Taliban camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan next?) Next question is, if what Obama did is treason, is it even considered a crime? Do we prosecute people for treason or sedition anymore?  Or will Obama, if he wins a second term bow down to the next  leader of Afghanistan, who will be a Taliban/Al Qaeda puppet due to the fact that Obama's policy will ultimately cause defeat for the United States and victory for our enemy.

CPO Barrett Must be Turning Over in His Grave

Putting Navy SEALs on trial for giving a terrorist a fat lip? Where I come from, we give people medals for doing that. More politically correct bullshit that is tearing our country apart, with the Left's enthusiastic approval. Just as well because they hate America anyway. I can't imagine what Roy Boehm is thinking right now. If we keep putting our military personnel on trial for doing their job, then we as a nation are in serious trouble. This "sensitivity training" and "politically correct" indoctrination of our military has to stop. Otherwise we will not be able to survive and thrive as a country. As the title of the piece says, CPO Everett Barrett must be turning over in his grave. Barrett was the man who trained and mentored the famous Navy SEAL Richard Marcinko, and I cannot imagine what Marcinko's thinking about this travesty.

Any one of these things, in and of themselves does not really matter. But.... when you add them up one by one you get a phenomenal score that points to the fact that our Obama is determined to make America over into a Marxist/Socialist society. All of the items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an internet search. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a more happy ending for most of America ? Personally, I like happy endings.

If you are an Obama Supporter, please do not be angry with me because I think your president is a socialist but there are too many facts supporting this. If you seek the truth you will be richer for it. Don't just belittle the opposition. Search for the truth. I did. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Constitutionalist, Libertarians and what have you, we all need to pull together. We all must pull together or watch the demise of a society that we all love and cherish. If you are a religious person, pray for our nation.

Never before in the history of America have we been confronted with problems so huge that the very existence of our country is in jeopardy. Don't rely on most television news and what you read in the newspapers for the truth. Search the Internet. Yes, there is a lot of bad information, lies and distortions there too but you are smart enough to spot the fallacies. Newspapers are a dying breed. They are currently seeking a bailout from the government. Do you really think they are about to print the truth? (The ONLY newspaper that tells the truth is The Wall Street Journal. It is the Fox News of print journalism and is the #1 newspaper in the USA .) Obama praises all the television news networks except Fox who he has waged war against. There must be a reason. He does not call them down on any specifics, just a general battle against them. If they lie, he should call them out on it but he doesn't. Please, seek the truth; it will set you free.

Our biggest enemy is not China , Russia , Iran ; no, our biggest enemy is a contingent of politicians in Washington DC .

Thank you NW Hague

Now They Blame Guns for the Fort Hood Terrorist Attack

I was wondering how long it would take Chuck Schumer, Richard J. Daley, Jr, and all the other gun control wackos to start blaming guns, the Second Amendment, and the NRA for the terrorist attack on Fort Hood.
As someone who owns guns (and by the way knows how to use them and is proud of the fact that I know how to use them) I know from personal experience that guns cannot load, aim, or fire themselves. Guns are an inanimate object that can do no harm to anyone unless a human being picks one up loads it, aims it, and squeezes the trigger. Nidal Malik Hassan is the one responsible for the terrorist attack on Fort Hood, not the NRA, the Second Amendment, Smith&Wesson, Colt, Glock, Ruger, etc. But one could also lay the blame at the feet of an increasingly politically correct military/political structure in this country. None of the soldiers at Fort Hood were armed, obviously. If they would have been, Hassan would not have gotten anywhere near as far as he did. It took a civilian federal police officer, Sergeant Mark Todd, to eventually bring the terrorist down. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't we at war? And when at war, aren't U.S. soldiers supposed to be armed and ready for any contingency?  Even in CONUS? (CONtinental United States for those of you in San Francisco) Oh wait, I forgot guns kill people and military personnel can't be trusted with firearms, because (gasp) they might have the temerity to defend themselves and their fellow soldiers from a terrorist attack with said weapons. I realize the military has to be regulated, but that should only be as far as their dealings with the civilian population (Posse Comitatus). But when you're in their territory, they have every right, no a duty to defend themselves, their fellow soldiers, and any civilian on that post by any means necessary. If I visited a military post and saw armed soldiers and Military Police, I would feel not threatened but safe and secure knowing that if anyone tried to attack me while on that post they wouldn't get too far. Because I know they're American soldiers, not some gang of Communist Red Guards or Nazi Stormtroopers. I would trust my life to an American soldier, Marine, airman, or sailor before any politician, especially a politician with an anti-gun axe to grind like Chuckie Schumer.

And that says it all. My apologies to General George Casey, who stated "What happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here." We have a very diverse society. And that give us all our strength" but you're wrong sir. Diversity is not our strength and never has been. It is our gravest weakness as a country. Assimilation is our strength, at least it used to be until those on the wrong side of the culture debate in this country found themselves in positions of power and decided for the rest of us that diversity and political correctness are what America is all about. And now such un-American bacteria has infected our military. My apologies General Casey, but you're wrong. I seriously think that diversity, politcal correctness, and multiculturalism are going to be the downfall of our once-great nation. All the politically correct multi-cultural birds are coming home to roost. And things are apt to get very messy when large a large amount of birds are involved.

Fort Hood Massacre: Let's Blame the Army

Enclosed is a story from the Canada Free Press website. The story is written by Daniel Greenfield. Please click on the link to read the story, and then tell me I'm crying "Wolf!" They Kill Us and We’re the Ones to Blame

Major Hassan had contact with an imam in Middle East, according to ABC News. The imam's name is Anwar al Awlaki who served as an imam at a mosque in Falls Church, VA and now lives in Yemen. In a blog posting earlier today (Monday) Awlaki proclaimed that Hassan, "did the right thing", was a "hero" and a "man of conscience who could not bear living the contradiction of being a Moslem and serving in an army that is fighting against his own people." 'His own people?' I thought this man was born and raised in the United States. His own people would be the men and women he served with in the United States Army.

Fort Hood Massacre, A Terrorist Attack?

It has been said that Nidal Malik Hasan shouted "Allah Hu Akbar!" before he started his shooting rampage that eventually killed 13 people and wounded 31. If he did indeed say that, why isn't this being referred to as a terror attack? Is it because our illustrious president doesn't have the courage to call a spade a spade?  Is it because the perpetrator isn't affiliated with Al Qaeda, Hamas, or any other terror organization? Or is it, I fear, that we are so cowed by political correctness that wer're deathly afraid to call the bloodshed at Fort Hood what it really is; a terrorist attack? It would seem the armed forces of the United States should look a little closer into the backgrounds of their officers, especially their Moslem officers. But oh wait, I forgot that's profiling! We can't do that because of the P.C. Gestapo!

Fort Hood Massacre

A military psychiatrist opened fire at the U.S. Army's Soldier Readiness Center Fort Hood near Killeen, Texas killing 12 and wounding  31. The name of the shooter is Nidal Malik Hassan, a Major in the United States Army who had been transferred to Fort Hood from Walter Reed Army Hospital this past July. He was a graduate of Virginia Tech where he was an ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) member. He earned a Bachelor's degree in biochemistry in 1997, then went on to receive his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences Bethesda, MD in 2001. He started his internship and finished his residency  at Walter Reed Army Medical Center Washington, D.C. Major Hassan was due to be shipped overseas for deployment to either Iraq or Afghanistan. Two other soldiers were also taken into custody and later released. According to Fort Hood spokesman Christopher Haug they were not involved in the shooting rampage. Hassan, 39 years old, was born in Virginia and is single with no children. At this time he is said to be alive and is expected to survive. Nidal Malik Hassan was born in Arlington, VA on September 8, 1970 to parents who emigrated to the U.S. from the West Bank.
Fort Hood was opened in September of 1942, named for General John B. Hood.

Another Writer's Block

I've really been having a hell of a writer's block lately. I can't think of a damn thing to write about. I've thought about writing some historical pieces and parlaying them into a modern context, but I can't think of how to do it without it looking hokey. I just wanted everybody who takes the time to read this stupid blog to know that I'm still alive and partially well. I hope I can think of something to write about soon

Chairman Mao: Mass Murderer

Mao Tse Tung, a man (monster) that seems to be greatly admired by members of the Obama Administration. If this is true, then we as a nation are in big trouble. In order to show people how these Marxist sycophants that Obama surrounds himself with are a serious threat to the country, we must have some background on Chairman Mao.
Mao Tse Tung was born on December 26, 1893 in Hunan Province Southern China and grew up in the city of Shaoshan. He took part in the 1911 Revolution, joining a Hunan Militia regiment on the side of the revolutionaries, helping to topple the Qing Dynasty. Mao then left the militia regiment and returned to school. He graduated from the First Provincial Normal School of Hunan in 1918, studying under Professor ( and future father-in-law ) Yang Changji. He also studied at Peking University, and at a college in Shanghai. It was during his sojourn in Shanghai that he was introduced to Communist teachings and philosophies. He attended the first session of the National Congress of the Communist Party of China on July 23, 1921 when he was 27 years old. From 1931 to 1934 Mao established the Soviet Republic of China in the mountainous areas of Jiangxi, where his authoritative domination was challenged by the Jiangxi branch of the Communist Party of China and military officers. Mao reacted by accusing these opponents of kulakism and opportunism and began to systematically suppress them. Under Mao's orders, horrible forms of torture and killing were carried out against these people. (Previews of things to come, on a far larger scale.) Mao fought against the Japanese during World War II, on the side of, grudgingly, the Nationalist Kuomintang (KMT). Eventually, after the defeat of the Japanese and due to a series of military and diplomatic blunders on the part of the KMT and the United States, Mao Tse Tung gained control of Mainland China on December 10, 1949 after forcing the Nationalists led by Chiang Kai-shek to evacuate offshore to the island of Formosa (Taiwan).
The Mass Murders
Chairman Mao established the People's Republic of China in October, 1949.
From 1958 to 1961, Mao initiated the Great Leap Forward, the nationalization of industry and agriculture in China. Peasants were forced to produce iron and steel in backyard furnaces in an attempt to increase China's steel output. Farmland was confiscated and turned over to the Communist government to use as they saw fit. It is estimated that 30 million people were killed because of this insane policy of collectivization, with many deaths due to starvation and murder by the Communist revolutionaries, known as the Red Guard.
In August, 1966 Chairman Mao began the Cultural Revolution to reform the economics, education and politics of Communist China. Millions more people were murdered by yet another insane series of policies insitigated by Mao.
I find it amazing that anyone born and raised in the United States could admire someone like  Mao. Imagine if some Republican or Conservative publicly stated their admiration for Adolf Hitler. The Left would scream and turn cartwheels and said Conservative would never see elected  or appointed office for the rest of his life, and with good reason because Hitler was a butcher just like Mao. BUT, why is it seemingly acceptable for the Left to admire Mao, or Josef Stalin, or Che Guevara? Why is it that nobody bats an eye when Anita Dunn, the Obama White House's communications director, openly expresses her admiration for Chairman Mao to a group of high school students? The minions of Obama's inner circle seem to admire Communist mass murderers. The question is, why do they admire any mass murderers, Communist or otherwise? Why do they seem to think the teachings and policies of such people as Mao or Stalin should be implemented here in the United States of America? Do they really think Left wing butchers are somehow superior to Right wing butchers?

Cap & Trade Will Ruin the U.S. Economy

The Cap & Trade bill being considered by Congress will destroy American sovereignty and subjugate us to the whims of the United Nations. If you think there's too much Made in China junk being sold in this country now, you ain't seen nothing yet if this abominable piece of legislation passes. There will be almost no manufacturing in the United States whatsoever if Cap & Trade passes. If you don't believe me click on the links below  and see for yourself:

YouTube - Is Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty?

What will cap and trade mean for American consumers? « Wintery Knight

Sarah Palin - A 'Cap and Tax' Road to Economic Disaster -

Martin Feldstein - The Folly of Unilateral Cap-and-Trade -

God Bless Lord Christopher Monckton for having the balls to speak up about this legislation. Too bad nobody in a position of power in the United States will do the same.

Barack Obama: The Real Illegitimate President

I recently received an email that dealt with Obama being born in the United States. I'm not going to spend a lot of time writing a post on whether or not Obama is a natural born American citizen. Instead, I'm going to put in some links to sites to show you that he may not be a natural-born citizen of the United States. Please copy and paste these links into your search engine and see for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

Then tell me if you think he's a legitimate president. At least we know without a doubt George W. Bush was born in the United States.

Christopher Columbus: The One Who Stayed

Today is Columbus Day, a day that should not even be celebrated according to the politically correct multicultural crowd in this country. 517 years ago Christopher Columbus landed at an island in the Caribbean known as Guanahani by it's native population then dubbed San Salvador by Columbus. This island was inhabited by a group of people known as the Arawaks and were described as a peaceful people by the Spanish explorers. The Arawaks were often raided and enslaved by a tribe known as the Caribs, who were an aggressive tribe known to practice cannibalism. Columbus noted that the Arawaks were ill-prepared for conflict of any type and remarked, "With 50 men I could conquer the whole of them and govern them as I please." One of Columbus' search parties on the archipelago of Guadeloupe made the gruesome discovery of Carib cannibalism described as, "Large cuts and joints of human flesh, hung up in houses as if curing for provisions; human body parts being roasted over fires." The stench of dead bodies was everywhere, horrifying and sickening Columbus' men. Columbus wrote in his personal journal that he found, "Caponized young Arawak boys being fattened for the griddle, captured girls were used mainly to produce babies, which the Caribs regarded as a particularly toothsome morsel." So much for the romanticizing of Indian life. In this politically correct, multicultural world we live in, it's become fashionable to bash Christopher Columbus because he supposedly enslaved and brought genocide to the New World, along with diseases and plagues. (What about how syphilis was brought to Europe from the New World?) The indigenous tribes were living a pristine island existence at peace with each other and in harmony with nature with not a care in the world until the evil Columbus conquered them and deliberately spread disease and committed genocide. (Caribs literally feasting on the Arawaks and another tribe known as the Ciboney, sounds like they were living in peace and harmony with each other and nature to me.) We all know that the Vikings were the first Europeans to find America long before Columbus, but Columbus was the first to bring the New World to the attention of all Europe, and the first to initiate widespread contact between indigenous Americans and Europeans. Historian Martin Dugard has said, "Columbus' claim to fame isn't that he got there first, it's that he stayed." For these reasons, Columbus should be praised, not vilified because if not for Christopher Columbus, many of us would not be here today. October 12, 1492 is a date that should be celebrated, not mourned.

Kevin Jennings: Where Does Barry Get These Guys?

First of all, I'm not sure how to proceed in my take on the latest Obama court jester, Kevin Jennings. I know if I come out with all guns blazing, I'll be called a bigot and a homophobe. If I don't, I'll be called overly tolerant of homosexuals. I will be honest with you, I do not approve of homosexuality. I personally think the lifestyle is abhorrent and reprehensible. Both God and nature did not intend for two men to have sexual relations with each other. However, this is America and what two consenting adults do in the bedroom is their business. But I also think that most people in the United States, while tolerant of homosexuals, will not stand for teachers or school administrators forcing the gay lifestyle on public school students. But according to Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs ( I hope I don't get in trouble for using her name), that's exactly what Kevin Jennings is in favor of and supports. Jennings is the founder of the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) a radical organization dedicated to indoctrinating our public school students into the "wonders" of homosexuality and gender-confusion (Atlas Shrugs). GLSEN sponsored a conference called "Teach Out" on March 25th, 2000 in Massachusetts. The conferences were held by employees of the Massachusetts Department of Education statewide according to ( I hope I don't get in trouble for using their name as well). The conference extolled the "virtues" of fisting, role-playing, and "carpet munching" ( I'm assuming that was for the lesbians at the conference). Massachusetts News publisher Ed Pawlick dubbed the entire incident as "Fistgate"(Mass Resistance). Three Education Department employees were fired after the incident. Now Barack Obama has appointed this man, Kevin Jennings, to head up "Safe Schools" efforts at the U.S. Department of Education. My question is, when did it become the purvey of our educators to indoctrinate our children into any kind of sexual lifestyle, heterosexual, homosexual or otherwise? It just goes to show you what lows the Left is willing to sink to in order to gain and hold on to power. Even our kids are not safe from left wing indoctrination.

George Soros: Financier to the Left

Let's have a brief chat about one of the Left's main money men: George Soros. Here's some background; George Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary August 12, 1930. His birth name was Gyorgy Schwartz. His father, Tivadar was Jewish and a prisoner of the Russians during World War I. The family changed their name from Schwartz to Soros in 1936 because of the growing anti-Semitism in Southeastern Europe and in Germany. In 1947, with World War II over, Soros moved to Britain and graduated from the London School of Economics in 1952. He moved to New York City in 1956, landing a job as an arbitrage trader with F.M. Mayer from 1956 to 1959, and then as an analyst with Wertheim and Company from 1959 to 1963. Soros is also a former member of the Carlyle Group. In 1970 he founded the Quantum Fund with the help of Jim Rogers, and in so doing, created the bulk of his fortune. In 2007 Quantum Fund returned almost 32%, netting Soros $2.9 million. On September 16, 1992 a day known as Black Wednesday, Soros' fund sold short more than $10 billion worth of British Pounds profiting from the Bank of England's reluctance to either raise interest rates comparable to other European Exchange Rate Mechanism countries or float the currency. The Bank of England was forced to withdraw it's currency from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism and in so doing, devalued the Pound Sterling and allowed George Soros to make a huge profit of $1.1 billion US dollars in the process. Soros was known as the "man who broke the Bank of England." In 2002 he was convicted of insider trading in France, which is a felony under French law. Soros was fined $2.3 million, which was the amount of money he made in the attempted takeover of French bank Societe Generale. He stated in a November 11 ,2003 Washington Post interview that, "Removing George W. Bush from office was the central focus of my life" and "a matter of life and death." He donated (and continues to donate), to the following left wing causes and organizations: Center for American Progress ( $3 million), ( $5 million), and America Coming Together ( $10 million). George Soros is an elitist, a man who is against repealing the Federal Estate Tax, which allows the IRS to confiscate up to 50% of the estate of a deceased relative. You can damn sure bet that George Soros will find a way to make sure any of his relatives avoid paying the Estate Tax. He's the worst kind of uber rich because of his it's okay-for-me-to-be-rich-but not-you attitude. He's the kind of guy that gets onto the board of an exclusive private club just to make it difficult for someone else to join. Soros is also a self-hating Jew, openly unsupportive of Israel. His whole "Open Society" psychobabble is nothing more than candy-coated Marxism. In conclusion, George Soros wrote an article in Atlantic Monthly entitled Capitalist Threat February, 1997. Now, you tell me what kind of ideology he supports? Maybe someone can "enlighten" me and tell me how someone who has so much wealth can be pro-Marxist. I'd really like to know.

Nixon: Whipping Boy for the Left

A little history tonight. Hopefully this post will show you to what extremes the Left is willing to go in order to gain and hold on to power in this country. On August 9, 1974 a man resigned from his job; that man was Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th President of the United States. Ostensibly, it was the third-rate burglary known to most of us as Watergate that forced him to resign the office. But the real reasons run much deeper than that. Nixon was the favorite whipping boy of the left for one reason and one reason only: He brought down Alger Hiss, an American spying for the Soviet Union while working for the U.S. Department of State during World War II. Hiss was a top official at the State Department and became a trusted adviser to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt at the Yalta Conference with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Soviet dictator and mass murderer Joseph Stalin in February, 1945. It is believed Hiss was the man who influenced Roosevelt's decision to cede much of Eastern Europe and a third of Germany to Stalin after Germany finally capitulated. In 1948, Alger Hiss was named by Whittaker Chambers as a Soviet spy before the House Un-American Activities Committee, a special subcommittee of which was chaired by Congressman Richard Nixon of California. Nixon doggedly pursued the Harvard-educated Hiss' associations with the Soviets and because of this fact, Nixon would be forever labelled as being resentful of the Ivy League. Because of Richard Nixon's perseverance, Alger Hiss was eventually convicted on two counts of perjury and sentenced to five years in federal prison. He actually served four years of his sentence at the Federal Penitentiary in Lewisburg, PA. Because Nixon had the audacity to ferret out a high-level Soviet spy and the temerity to defend his country, he would be forever loathed by the Left in America. Watergate gave liberals the excuse they needed to bring down Nixon's presidency. These are the same people that Obama has surrounded himself with. I know, I know the names are different and the situation is slightly different, but the ideology is still the same. The names change, but the malevolent ideology of Communism and Marxism will always be the same.

San Joaquin Valley

I sometimes wonder what country we live in. I cannot believe that the United States Government would deliberately put farmers out of business because of some "rare"species of fish. (The Delta Smelt) This Endangered Species Act has gone too far. I'm sorry, but no animal is so valuable as a species that it's continued existence should put people out of work. Enough is enough. I like animals as much as anyone, but I'm also realistic enough to believe that they should not be protected at the expense of human progress. 12% of American agricultural output comes from California, and a large part of it from the San Joaquin Valley. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act, farmers cannot get water piped in to irrigate their crops because of an "endangered" minnow. This crap has got to stop. It's time we told the Federal Government that their unelected, unaccountable alphabet soup agencies are going to be held accountable for their misguided actions. Some fish or plant or animal cannot and should not be allowed to impede progress in this country and should certainly not be allowed to deprive our farmers of water to grow their crops. Crops that you and I eat. These enviro-nazi animal rights wackos should remember one thing: Don't cuss out the farmer with your mouth full. I am a descendant of farmers, so I know what they go through to make a living. The last thing they need is bullshit from some government alphabet soup agency or a gaggle of misanthropic animal rights nazis.

Slavery: Not Just for Blacks

First of all, I want to say that slavery was America's original sin, and I in no way shape or form condone or support one human being owning another human being. Having said that, the blacks in the United States need to stop with the race-baiting, revisionist history, and selective perception when it comes to slavery in America. People have been taught that evil white Europeans went deep into the jungles of darkest Africa to cosh poor unsuspecting indigenous Negroes on the head and take them into slavery. That may have happened in a very small percentage of cases, but the reality is something far different, and not as cut and dried. The reality is, most African slaves were sold to white European slave traders by people of their own race. Tribes in Africa would fight each other in local conflicts and one of the benefits for the victorious tribe was taking the members of the defeated tribe and selling them into slavery and not just to white Europeans. The Arabs were heavily involved in the trade as well. Arabs also enslaved Eastern European whites. Yes, you read correctly, white Eastern Europeans were sold into slavery. The word Slav means "slave" in Eastern European languages. This trade took place sometime during the 8th and 9th centuries and included whites from the Mediterranean areas, the Caucuses Mountains ( Georgia, Armenia, Circassia) and parts of Scandinavia. The Arabs, as I mentioned before, were also deeply involved in the buying and selling of African slaves as well. It is estimated that the Arabs sold between 11 and 18 million Negroes into slavery from the year 650 to the year 1900! Compare that with the 9 to 12 million slaves sold in the Americas during the Atlantic Slave Trade. It wasn't just the United States that was involved in the Atlantic Slave Trade, Brazil was a big player as well. White Europeans also enslaved each other in the early days of European civilization. The Vikings were notorious for taking people they captured in combat as slaves. Saint Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland was himself captured and sold as a slave. During the Carolingian Dynasty in Germany approximately 20% of the population were slaves. In England, chattel slavery was quite common until the year 1066 when William of Normandy conquered England. Chattel slavery was abolished in 1102. I know many people will say, "So? Who cares that the Arabs, English, and Vikings bought and sold white people?" That all happened centuries ago." Slavery in America didn't end until the Civil War and that wasn't all that long ago comparatively, so white America still hasn't suffered enough or done enough penance for their sins." It's not a question of "suffering enough" or "doing penance for past sins" it's a question of perspective. The fact is IT WASN'T JUST NEGROES THAT WERE FORCED INTO SLAVERY! Besides, the people that took part in the slave trade are all dead! That includes the people who traded in slaves, and the people who were sold into slavery. There is no slavery in America or Europe anymore! Slavery is dead in most parts of the world, save one continent, one region of the earth. That continent is Africa. To this day, tribes in Africa are still fighting, killing, and enslaving each other. The last time I checked, the predominate color of most people in Africa is black, so how can white people be held solely responsible for slavery? All I'm saying is, blacks in the United States need to stop living in the past and realize they have it far better here in America than they would in any African country.

Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze is no longer with us I'm sorry to say. He passed on September 14, 2009, and will be missed. He'll most likely be remembered for his role in the movie Dirty Dancing but I remember him more from the movie Red Dawn where he played the role of Jed Eckert, the leader of a group of high school kids fighting against a Soviet/Cuban invasion of the United States. Swayze was fighting against a different but no less deadly enemy this time around: pancreatic cancer, an aggressive and pernicious form of cancer whose victims have a very low survival rate. Like his character in Red Dawn, he didn't give up without a fight, he continued to live life on his own terms right up to the very end. When the end finally came, he was with the people he cared most about; his family. Patrick Swayze will be sadly missed by us all.

Writer's Block

Hey everybody, I have a case of writer's block tonight. I'm not sure what to write about, I've been leaning kind of heavy on the politics lately because I think the country is in serious trouble.
But I can't seem to narrow it down to just one thing and keep people interested. My blog's only had 68 hits on it, so it's not like I'm going disappoint a whole hell of a lot of fans. I'm going to do a bit more research before I write anything. I feel like I haven't been as astute as I should be in my past writings. I'll hopefully have something for you to ruminate over tomorrow. Or maybe tonight, sometimes I get a thought while I'm drifting off to sleep. Have a good night y'all.

September 11, 2001

On the day in the above title, I was working for an electrical supply house as a truck driver. I remember it was a bright, sunny day with temperatures that reached the mid 70s. Perfect weather, a good day for a drive. I was making a delivery to the data center for a major chocolate company where I usually just dropped the stuff at the dock and made a note on my manifest. This day, the receiving manager came up to me and asked, "Do you have a radio in your truck?" To which I replied, "Yes but I don't have it turned on." He said, "Well come in the office and look at this." He had a small TV in his office, and on the screen I saw the vision of the North Tower burning, thick black smoke billowing out of the floors that the plane crashed into. My first thought was an accident, the pilot somehow lost course and crashed into the building. I asked the receiver, "What happened? Was it an accident?" He said, "I don't know, they're saying it was terrorists." I said, "Terrorists!?" "Oh God!" I watched for a minute or two and said, "I gotta get going, I'm going to listen to this in my truck." I left the building and got into my truck and left. I turned the radio on in the truck and as I made my way to the next stop, I heard that another plane had crashed into the South Tower. I thought, "That's it, it's gotta be terrorists."
There was no way two planes could accidentally crash into those buildings within seventeen minutes of each other. When I arrived at my next stop, one guy there said, "A plane just hit the Pentagon in D.C.!" I said, "Yeah, I heard about it on the radio." I made my delivery and the guy said, "Be careful, watch the skies." As I went to my next stop the newsman said a plane had crashed in a field in Somerset County, PA. I was flabbergasted. I thought, "Jesus Christ, how many planes did these assholes hijack?" Then the incredible happened: at 9:59AM the South Tower collapsed. The newscaster was frantic in his delivery of the message. My jaw hit the floor. I could not believe that one of the towers of the World Trade Center actually fell. I was making a delivery at a job site when I heard the North Tower fell. One of the electricians on the site had his radio tuned to the news station. I was almost numb with horror when I heard about it. I was thinking to myself, "How many people work in those two buildings? 20,000? " I later heard that up to 50,000 people could have been in those buildings at any given time. I kept going and finished making my deliveries, with various people asking me if I heard about what was going on. I answered in the affirmative, that yes I've been listening to it on the radio. I returned to the warehouse in the early afternoon. I parked my truck, unloaded my returns and turned my manifest in. I remember talking to another driver, a big hefty guy with a deep stentorian voice. He said, "Those motherfuckers are gonna wish they never pulled this shit on us." Thank God Bush won the election and not Gore." I agreed with him and went into the breakroom to see if they had it on the TV in there. They did of course, people were mainly silent as they watched the destruction of two icons of American engineering and economic prowess. I could not believe what had happened. But it did, and to this day we're still fighting the group that did it. My heart goes out to all those who died and those who lost family members in the attacks on September 11, 2001. I only hope that they will not have died in vain.

The "Second Bill of Rights"

You may have seen me use the term "Second Bill of Rights" in my last few postings. The Second Bill of Rights was dreamed up by our illustrious 32nd president Franklin Delano Roosevelt during his State of the Union Address on January 11th, 1944 to assure us "equality in the pursuit of happiness." Those "rights" were as follows:
1. A job with a living wage
2. Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies
3. A home
4. Medical care
5. Education
6. Recreation

My question is, just how in the hell can any government agency guarantee "equality in the pursuit of happiness"? These liberals never cease to amaze me in their concerted effort to wipe out individuality in this country and force all of us to march in lockstep. People might think, "Wow Roosevelt had good ideas, the government should guarantee all of these 'rights' after all it's only fair and fairness is what America is all about." Well, that might make for a good idea if everybody thought the same way, looked the same way, had the same dreams and ambitions and the same wants, needs, and desires. But I hate to break it to you, we're all different! We all have different interests, abilities, and levels of ambition. We all have different wants, needs, and desires, and no amount of government force or coercion is going to change that. What kind of job is the Nanny state going to guarantee me?
What kind of home am I going to get and what neighborhood is said home going to be located in?
Guaranteed medical care, how good will it be, how well will I be taken care of if the government creates wage/price controls on medical personnel and the procedures they use? I'll keep saying what I've been saying for years, and I'll keep saying it till everybody gets it; YOU CANNOT GUARANTEE EQUALITY OF OUTCOME! No matter how many people you imprison, exile or mass-murder you cannot guarantee equality of outcome. Marxism, Socialism, Communism, and Fascism DO NOT WORK!
As far as I know, nobody is keeping me or anyone else from the pursuit of happiness, unless it's some bureaucrat saying I need a college degree to be a janitor at the Smithsonian.
As far as a right to recreation, I like to target shoot for recreation and Mr. Obama would love nothing more than to take that right away from me. Which, by the way, is a real right in the real Bill of Rights. It's called the Second Amendment which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms, for which liberals have very little respect.

Cass Sunstein: the Regulator

Hey y'all I'm back! I hope you had a good Labor Day weekend. I'm going to get right down to business with the next Obama adviser pick: Cass Sunstein. Where to start with this Marxist-Fascist sycophant. His dubious title is Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. He was born on September 21, 1954 in Cambridge, Massachussetts. He graduated in 1972 from Middlesex School in Concorde, MA and moved on to Harvard College (no surprise there) earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1975. In 1978 he received a Juris Doctor magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. He served as a law clerk to Justice Benjamin Kaplan of the Massachussetts Supreme Judicial Court from 1978 to 1979 and then clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall from 1979 to 1980. Sunstein worked for the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel from 1980 to 1981 as an attorney-adviser before becoming an assistant professor of law at the University of Chicago Law School. At this time he also became an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science (1983-1985). I'll never, to this day, understand why it is Ivy League, i.e.; Harvard graduates seem to have a natural predisposition to Socialism, Marxism, and Fascism. This is a man that thinks animals ought to be able to sue people ( with human legal representation, of course) to make sure people don't violate animal cruelty laws. He also believes the we "now more than ever" need to revive Franklin Roosevelt's "Second Bill of Rights." He is also in favor of regulating the Internet because he says, it "may weaken democracy because it allows citizens to isolate themselves with groups that share their own experiences and views and thus cut themselves off from any information that might challenge their beliefs." Hmmm, it sounds to me like he wants to take away people's freedom of association. He also believes that we should "celebrate tax day" because "there is no liberty without dependency." He is also in favor of gun control stating that, "Almost all gun control legislation is constitutionally fine. And if the court's right, then fundamentalism does not justify the view that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to bear arms." Cass Sunstein has also said he would want to ban hunting to expand the rights of animals to the detriment of farmers and consumers. He said, "Human willingness to subject animals to unjustified suffering will be seen as a form of unconscionable barbarity, morally akin to slavery and the mass extermination of human beings." How he can view hunting in the same light as slavery and mass murder of humans is beyond me. It's going to get even better folks, Obama is batting 500 with the people he appoints as "czars" and advisers, but he keeps up this facade of "moderation." I urge all of you who read this blog to keep your sights of 2010. That will be the year that real Americans will be elected to Congress, and will put this country back on track. Americans that believe in the Constitution, not some mish-mash of European law, U.N. edicts, and Marxist doctrine.

Hey everybody, I'm taking Labor Day weekend off. See y'all on Tuesday.

Mark Lloyd: "Diversity" Czar

Well here we go again, I bring you now the next minion from Obama's inner circle: Mr. Mark Lloyd. This one is the Associate General Counsel and Chief "Diversity Officer" of the Federal Communications Commission. This is a man who admires people such as Hugo Chavez, and is also a man who would dearly love to get people like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage taken off the air in the name of "fairness" and "diversity" and "racial equality."
My question is this, since when is it the job of some government alphabet soup agency such as the FCC to "diversify" any kind of radio programming? Is he going to "balance" Howard Stern's show with a Christian "Moral Majority" program? Is he going to balance a theoretical Black Panthers broadcast with a broadcast from the Ku Klux Klan, or balance a Jewish talk show with a program from the Aryan Brotherhood? I find it amazing that Obama and Company are trying so desperately to silence any and all opposition to their Marxist plan for this country. The left is going bananas trying to keep conservatives and libertarians from speaking their minds and are going mad trying to ban them from offering a different way of doing things and a different point of view.
Mark Lloyd, if he has his way, will impose enormous fines on broadcasters who do not comply with his version of "diversity" and "the public interest." My question is, who defines what diversity is? Who defines what the public interest is? Does he think that because the airways are public that that gives him the right to tell me who I can and cannot listen to? Does he think that because Glenn Beck may not fit his narrow definition of the "public interest" that he has the right to coerce, through financial sodomy, local radio stations into dropping Beck's radio program? Or Limbaugh's? Or Hannity's? It's high time we force our so-called leaders to start reading the Constitution and abide by it. Just because there was no radio broadcasting in 1789 doesn't mean the First Amendment doesn't apply to radio or TV. It also doesn't mean any government alphabet soup agency has the right to to tell me through regulation, who I can or cannot listen to on the radio. If Mark Lloyd doesn't like conservative talk radio, he has one recourse: TURN THE F*@#ING CHANNEL! And that's what I say to anyone who doesn't like anything on radio or TV. I'm not a big fan of Howard Stern or any other liberal talk radio shows or programs, but I also do not have to listen to them if I don't want to. If I hear them on my radio, I do one very simple but vitally important thing, I change the station. As far as I'm concerned, the job of the Federal Communications Commission is to monitor broadcasting frequencies, not the content of said broadcasts. Mark Lloyd would do well to remember that we do have a First Amendment, and yes, it does apply to broadcast media, both radio and television.
The next post will be about Cass Sunstein, the man who wants to ban hunting.

White Polluters and White Environmentalists: The Van Jones Saga

Hello everybody I'm back already, it is after all, the next day. I hope I'm not too fatigued to the point that I screw this up. I said in my previous post that I would be talking about Obama's advisers, cabinet members, and court jesters. Well, here I am and ready to start with part adviser and part court jester Van Jones. First a little background. Van Jones was born in Jackson, Tennessee on September 20, 1968. He attended and graduated from Jackson Central-Merry High School in 1986. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Tennessee-Martin. He then attended Yale Law School and received a Juris Doctor degree in 1993 after which he moved to San Francisco. During the 1992 trial of four Los Angeles police officers accused of beating Rodney King, Jones was a volunteer "legal monitor" at a protest of the not guilty verdict. Jones and several other protesters were arrested presumably for disorderly conduct. The San Francisco District Attorney later dropped the charges. He stated that the verdict outraged and radicalized him and by August of the same year said, "I am a Communist." He was heavily involved with the group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement aka STORM. This is group is steadfastly committed to Marxist revolutionary politics their platform promoting revolutionary democracy, revolutionary feminism, urban Marxism and Third World Communism. Jones, while with STORM, was committed to protesting alleged police brutality. Now we jump ahead to the year 2004 and the 911 "Truth" movement. Van Jones was one of one hundred prominent Americans who signed the "911 Truth Statement" from, an organization dedicated to "proving" the Bush Administration was involved in the 9/11 attacks. On October 7, 2008 Jones' book The Green Collar Economy was published by HarperOne. On February 11, 2009, Van Jones delivered the Second Annual Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative lecture, where he was questioned on why Democrats are having trouble moving their initiatives through Congress when Republicans had little trouble doing the same when they were in charge. Jones' response was, "The answer to that is: They're assholes. That's a technical political science term. And Barack Obama's not an asshole. I will say this, I can be an asshole and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are gonna have to start getting a little bit uppity." In January of 2008, Jones made the following statement, "The environmental justice community has said, 'Hey wait a minute, you're regulating but you're not regulating equally.' And the white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people-of-color communities, because they don't have a racial justice frame.' " White Polluters? Racial justice? May I ask what the hell is the difference between a white-owned factory and a black-owned factory that supposedly "pollutes"? I didn't know that pollution was something that discriminated against anyone on the basis of color. (Or anything else for that matter.) And "racial justice" I'm not sure what the hell that means. I always thought justice was blind to race and color. Hmmmm, maybe I should've paid more attention in history class. My question is, if Obama's such a moderate trying to reach across the aisle, why is he appointing a self-admitted Communist as one of his advisers? I wonder if there are any more court jesters such as this for me to write about? Next post: Mark Lloyd.

Obama's Minions

In my next few posts, I will shed some light on the advisers, cabinet members, and court jesters Obama is surrounding himself with. It's getting late now so I'll have to continue this tomorrow. I will start with Van Jones.
Good night y'all.

Now I'm a Right-wing Domestic Terrorist

I am 100% dead set against government run health care in any way shape or form. So I guess that makes me a domestic terrorist. Obama & Company can't win their side of the argument about health care on merit, so they have to lash out and call people like me, your humble writer, nasty names. I haven't been to a town hall meeting yet, but I for the most part, support the people at those meetings that are speaking out against government-run health care. It seems that if I'm against some bureaucrat determining what kind of treatment I get for a certain condition or disease or injury, that makes me no better than the Taliban or Al Qaeda. I assume they'll start comparing me to Timothy McVeigh as well. I guess I'm a domestic terrorist because I don't want to wait for long periods of time to get treated at some government run hospital or clinic the way people do in Canada and Britain. I'm a right-wing extremist because I have yet to see anything in the United States Constitution that provides the means for the government to run health care. The people who attend the Tea Parties are bloodthirsty Al Qaeda operatives because they're tired of Obama and his Socialist minions taking more and more of their money to spend on government programs that they neither want or need. I'll go back to one of my previous posts when I say it seems Obama & Company believe in the the First Amendment only when people say things they agree with. Maybe I should watch what I type on here, or I may be getting a knock on my door from the Secret Service or the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
P.S. Have you ever noticed we have too many "Bureaus" in this country?

The Real Barack Obama

When Obama was elected in November of 2008, I half jokingly said to people who voted for him , "I hope I can live with the choice you have made for me." Now, I'm not so sure if what I said was so much a joke as a prophecy of sorts. And it seems like more and more people are finding it increasingly difficult to live with the choice that 52% of Americans made for the rest of us. Take a look at the unemployment numbers in this country, close to 10%. It seems every day he hires on another Marxist radical of one sort or another to head one new Marxist bureaucratic agency or another. Then we have the takeover of General Motors and Chrysler by Obama & Company, which includes the United Automobile Workers union. Imagine that, two great bastions of American industrial prowess being run by the UAW; the very organization that brought them down in the first place. With the blessing of Barry Hussein I must say. It's akin to letting the inmates run the asylum. Now we have a "Car Czar" bureaucracy to tell the auto companies what cars they can and cannot produce based on dubious environmental concerns, rather than letting the consumer determine what cars they want or don't want. Now he wants the federal government to run the banks. One has to wonder how much of a disaster that would be. Then we have Cap and Trade, which should really be called Cap and Tax because that's what it really does, taxes the shit out of American manufacturing and industry. I will never understand how anybody who was born and raised in this country can think protecting the environment to the point of shutting American factories down and putting huge numbers of people out of work can be good for the nation. Rush Limbaugh has stated that radical environmentalism is the new refuge for communism in this country, and I'm inclined to agree with him. All you have to do is look at the people who run such organizations to see that they're not exactly people who believe in the teachings of Ludwig von Mises. The purpose of this digression is this: Obama ran as a so-called "moderate". If he's such a moderate, why is he surrounding himself with advisers that are far from moderate on any issue? (Van Jones, Mark Lloyd) He said there would be no lobbyists in his administration, well we all know how that turned out. Then he went to foreign countries and apologized for America! Like we as a nation have done something wrong. And actually bowed down to the king of Saudi Arabia! The real Obama is basically a Marxist who wants to re-make America into a Socialist-Fascist country where the government controls every aspect of your life. And he also wants an America that subordinates it's sovereignty to the whims of European socialists, Third World America-bashers and Hugo Chavez. This man must be stopped. Yes, I know we're stuck with him for the next four years, but he can still be stopped. We must vote for people that will stand up and defend the United States Constitution. We must elect people who believe in the freedom of the individual above the power of the government. We must re-take our country in the 2010 elections. We must elect people to Congress in 2010 that are diametrically opposed to Obama and his policies. Then we can work on getting Obama out of office in 2012.

Freedom of Speech?

I guess the First Amendment only protects speech that Obama and other liberals agree with. I find it amazing that Obama and Company have such a cavalier attitude towards the U.S. Constitution. First of all, appointing a "Diversity Officer" at the Federal Communications Commission sounds like creating an office called "The Reichsminister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda" or more simply, and I know this will infuriate liberals, Pravda. It looks like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage are such threats to Obama & Company that they have to create a position of "Diversity Officer" in the FCC to silence any opposition to Barry Hussein's vision of a Marxist America. Second of all, how about the thugs from the Service Employees International Union showing up at town hall meetings to threaten and intimidate people who speak out against Obamacare? We all know that unions are in a sense above the law thanks to the Enmons Decision of the Supreme Court in 1975. So, it seems if you stand up to union thugs and get your skull creased, the law can't do anything to said thugs. I watch Glenn Beck's show just about every afternoon. And I agree with him when he says Question Boldly and Speak Without Fear. What I think is neat and kind of funny is how conservatives are using Saul Alinksy's Rules For Radicals against the very people that Alinsky wrote the book for. In fact, I love it. It's about time we conservatives started throwing it back into the left's collective face. There's something seriously wrong when the President of the United States sides with Marxists(Hugo Chavez) and appoints an admitted Communist (Van Jones) as "Green Jobs Czar." I'll have more to say about so-called "Green Jobs" in the next post. Until then, night y'all.

A Nice Night in the Country (revisited)

Last night's show was a rousing success! Everything went very well on my end, no tech problems, no trouble getting everything into the mix. The crowd was very responsive. For some reason, the lighting tech was strangely silent last night, not many bad jokes or double entendres'. Oh well, it was a great night and I was glad everything went well.

Nice Night in The Country

Tonight I'm doing a show in a rural town about 40 minutes north of where I live. It's not a bad venue actually, it's a large square room with high ceilings and a good PA System run by a competent house sound engineer. Another plus is two very sexy female bartenders. I will be mixing two bands tonight, the first being a more modern rock band fronted by a very talented female lead singer who happens to be married to the bands drummer who is equally talented. The headliner is the same classic rock/metal band that I mixed for last night. It's a big room. I hope we pack it with a fair amount of people, since this is still August and still summer, and summer is a bad time of year for local music acts. I'm looking forward to a good night of minimal technical problems, free Coca-Cola, sweet smiles from sexy bar-maidens, and swapping bad jokes and double entendres' with the house light tech. See ya soon

Not A Bad Night

Tonight(8/28) I did a show at a place called Zingers which is south of one of the major cities in my area. Several hot chicks were in attendance, so I was treated to some good eye candy. I had a good mix on the band, which was a classic rock/classic metal group. The mix was clean and clear, loud but not overbearing. What made it even nicer was a fairly quick load-in and load-out.
All in all, not a bad night.

No Writings This Evening

I can't think of anything to write about this eve. There are so many things I'm thinking about that I can't narrow it down to just one. Sorry folks. Maybe tomorrow morning I can organize my thoughts a little better. Good night.


I keep hearing all this crap about healthcare in this country, and I'm sure you have too so I'll keep it short and sweet. I'll give you my opinion in the form of a question. The question is, what makes people think the government can run health care better than the private sector? Judging the federal government's track record on other social-welfare programs, they don't seem to be capable of running much of anything. My next and final question is, would you put your life in the hands of a bunch of government bureaucrats?

May 18, 2009

The above date might not mean much to you, but it has a special significance to me. May 18, 2009 was the day I was laid off from my job, permanently laid off that is. I worked for an electrical supply company that I will not name. I actually liked working there because of my fascination with electricity and the devices that make it work. I became a statistic in a matter of minutes when the branch manager called me into the office to inform me that "the day we were all dreading has come...." I was not happy about what came next, the termination documents, the COBRA documents, which is a joke in and of itself, the 401k cash-in forms. The branch manager and my soon-to-be former co-workers were not happy about what was happening to me. To give the branch manager credit, he apologized to me for doing what he had to do at the behest of the company. Actually he apologized to me three times. The reason for termination was "Workforce Reduction" neat euphemism isn't it? I'm not bitter at the company I worked for, and I'm certainly not angry with my former co-workers. I am angry at an increasingly intrusive Government at all levels ( local, state, federal) for screwing up the economy in the first place all in the name of "equality". I urge everyone to beware of somebody who uses the word equality in reference to the economy because nine times out of ten, that person means equality of outcome rather than equality of opportunity. You cannot guarantee equality of outcome. No matter how much you try to force socialism on a nation or how hard you try to communize a nation, you'll never guarantee equality of outcome. The reason you can't guarantee it it this: We're all individuals, and we're all different people. No two people are alike in all aspects. Human nature is human nature and no Socialist or Communist or Fascist will ever change that no matter how many mass murders they commit in the name of their idealogy.

Kicking the Habit

I have recently quit smoking. Recently meaning I haven't had a cigarette in a year and a half. I started quitting in December of 2007 with the help of a well known drug that many of you have seen advertised on TV. I started taking it in mid-December. While taking the drug, I was still smoking but it seemed like I didn't need to smoke as much. About the middle of January, I bought a pack of my favorite cigarettes at my usual cigarette buying spot. I made that pack of cigarettes last for two weeks. After I smoked the last cigarette, I was finished with them. I no longer had the urge to smoke and haven't had one since then. What's really strange is I didn't start smoking until I was 20 years old. I was always so against smoking when I was a kid as both of my parents smoked and it used to drive me crazy when riding in the car with them. To this day, I'll never know why I started smoking in the first place. I'm glad I quit, but I only hope 20 years of smoking hasn't done too much damage to me. I've been hearing a lot of talk about anti-smoking laws and such, which to me are just another infringement on our freedoms by government. I am not a smug self-righteous ex smoker who lectures people on the supposed dangers of second hand smoke. I really do not care if other people smoke around me as long they don't blow their smoke in my face, which is the epitome of rudeness in my opinion. I think a business has every right to either allow smoking or ban smoking or provide a smoking section for their customers who smoke. The government does not have the right to tell anyone what they can and cannot do with their own business establishment or property.

Drugs and Prohibition

Awhile back I was watching a show on the History Channel about drugs and their use and history in this country. I find it very interesting that we as a nation prohibited drugs after the violence and corruption caused by prohibition of alcohol. I was brought up to believe that millions and millions of people were using drugs, and a druggie was waiting around every corner with his coat collar turned up, ready to forcibly put dope in my mouth. Of course as I got older, I found out the difference between myth and reality. I never was a big time drug user. My experience with drugs amounted to smoking O.P. reefer ( O.P. meaning Other People's). I knew people in high school who used drugs and I was pretty good friends with some of them. The "druggies" I knew didn't seem much different from anyone else. Certainly not much different from others I knew that used alcohol. What I'm trying to get at is this: I think it's a total waste of money, time, and resources to wipe out a product that people want. As far as I'm concerned (like what I think matters) marijuana is no more a threat to the nation than alcohol. If anything, alcohol is worse in the regard that it makes people violent depending on what kind of alcohol one has been consuming. I've talked to police officers about this subject and they've all told me that they'd rather deal with someone that's been smoking reefer than deal with somone who's drunk on Jack Daniel's. Whiskey drinkers get crazy violent, I know because I used to be one. Prohibition doesn't work very well, especially in this case where the government actually makes money from said prohibition. Marijuana should be legalized, taxed, and sold in the convienience stores just like alcohol (in states other than Pennsylvania that is, but that's another story). Legalize it, tax it, put an age limit on it and let people make their own evaluations and decisions about using it. We'd save a hell of a lot of money, and make law enforcement's job much easier in the process.

Ted Kennedy's demise

Let me start out by saying that I am an unapologetic Constitutionalist. I do not think that the Constitution is a living document that's open to interpretation and subject to change on the whim of some liberal.(or some Republican i.e. Dubya's Patriot Act) Having said that, at first I was happy that good ole Teddy Kennedy died. I know that sounds sick and sad, but I've thought it over and now believe I was mistaken in being happy at the demise of someone. Even a skunk like Edward Kennedy. Teddy was not a good man in my opinion. He was all for taxing people to pay for the so called "disadvantaged" but I never saw him using his vast family fortune to pay for same disadvantaged people. Plus there was that little Chappaquiddick thing. (R.I.P Mary Jo Kopechne) Kennedy believed what he believed, he was wrong, but he still stuck by his views. I guess he can be admired for that to a certain extent. Maybe some conservatives would do well to take a lesson from Kennedy in the sense of standing by your principles and not giving a damn what the news media, the opposition, or anyone else thinks of you. Edward Kennedy was one man that did not give a damn what anyone thought of him politically. Even though he was wrong on so many counts it wasn't funny. And I don't give a damn what anyone thinks of this post either.

Just getting started

Hello everybody, I'm just getting started in the blogging game. Bear with me till I think of something profound to say.
