Ask Osama…

“Ask Osama bin Laden if he’s better off now than he was four years ago!” John F. Kerry

Quite possibly the best quote of the Democratic National Convention.  Love me some Senator Kerry!


Military and Veterans Start to See Blue

Finally.  This is a phenomenon that I have wondered about for a long long time.  Why and how did the Republican Party get such a boost from the military and our nation’s veterans?  It’s not like more Republicans have served than Democrats, but the military members and veterans kept voting Republican.  It’s almost like they kept expecting the Republican Party to have their back, all the while many of them were screwing them daily. 

I was appalled in 2004 at the attacks on John Kerry and Max Cleland.  Both men served valliantly in Vietnam.  Hell, Max gave three limbs for his county yet the Republican Right questioned his patriotism time and time again.  It galled me greatly to see Saxby I didn’t serve a day Chambliss question Cleland’s ability to stand up for his country.  I kept shouting at the tv, “Hey asshole, he doesn’t have any legs because he ALREADY stood up for his country.”  Or when George “W”here the Hell was I Bush and the Swift Lying Ass Boaters raised questions about John Kerry and his service.  Even more of an irritant was the ever bloating and pill popping Limbaugh making such allegations.  That fat piece of shit avoided the war due to a boil on his ass.  How’s that for irony? 

Now, I’ll never make the claim that you have to serve in the military to prove you are a patriot.  Hell, you can teach, join the Peace Corps, become a police/fire/EMT, or just about anything else to better your country to show your patriotism.  Try exercising your right to vote, now that’s some patriotism!  But, man oh man, do I start getting hot when someone hints I am not a patriot because I question the government or don’t believe the same things they do.  I usually turn and say, “I picked up a gun and served my country asshole, until you do the same, SHUT THE HELL UP!”

I’m thrilled to see the military and other veterans voting for Democratic candidates.  All I can say is, took ya long enough!

Where Does the Republican Party Go From Here?

Well…to Hell in a hand basket if they don’t change their ways!  Hahahahaha.  Okay, okay.  I’m not being a very gracious winner I know.  I’m not sure after the shenanigans this election they deserve anything except what they got.

I’m grateful to see the Anti-American, real American, and all that other crap didn’t work for them this election.  If anything it completely backfired.  Think about it.  What was John McCain’s message?  I’m a war hero.  Well, okay, I’ll give you that, but remember in 2004 the Republican Party lead by George W. Bush and Karl Rove proved that didn’t mean anything.  The attacks on Senator Kerry pretty much said, we don’t give a shit about your service.  So why would anyone think that McCain could get away with running on that alone?  What was his message?  He offered little to no solution on any of the issues America is facing.  All he had was scare tactics.

In addition, Sarah Palin had no message.  What did that lady say?  She rarely strung together complete sentences.  And when she did, she was launching personal attacks on Barack Obama or claiming to be in “real” America.  She had NO experience to speak of.  She had a pregnant unwed teenage daughter, and it’s hard to advocate abstinence only and morality with all that going on.  And before you get your panties in a bundle, I’m not attacking her for the teenage daughter or the daughter.  I honestly could care less.  However the hypocrisy of it all does stick in my craw.

Another casualty of their own attack ads was Elizabeth Dole.  She didn’t run on her experience.  She didn’t run on her leadership in the American Red Cross.  When the race got tight, she got desperate and stupid and ran a bunch of personal attack ads on her opponent.  She didn’t offer sensible solutions and leadership, she went with hate and fear and Godless crap attack ads.  I can’t say I’ve ever been more disappointed with a Senator.  I had real respect for her, and man on man did she completely lose it.  I’m sure she doesn’t care, but apparently the good people of North Carolina weren’t impressed either.

The question is where do they go from here?  From where I’ve been sitting they’ve got a huge tent and a very small door.  If that door continues to shrink, no one will be able to get in.  And why would they want to?  They have been preaching hate and fear for nearly a decade and it’s finallly caught up with them.  Until they rid themselves of the crazy that has hijacked their party I don’t see much improving.

In addition, they have claimed for years to be the party of less government, however we have the largest government ever!  And it seems when it comes to less government, we are only talking regulation of big business.  When it comes to my body, my religion, or my bedroom they want to regulate the hell out of me.

Tolerance.  Humility.  Acceptance.  Those are three words they just can’t seem to grasp.

Not Elizabeth Dole too!

I am so sick of this type of politics.  I am okay when a candidate comes after another candidate on policy.  That makes sense.  What I don’t get is this type of crap that has risen to a whole new level for this election.  Republicans hinted at pandora’s box in 2000 with Al Gore.  They broke the seal in 2004 with John Kerry and Max Cleland.  Remember the Swift Boat I’m full of SHIT Vets (as a vet myself I find them particularly repugnant) and the Max Cleland the Coward ads?  Do I need to remind everyone how much Max gave his country in Vietnam…probably.  But this election takes the cake.  It’s like they shook the box and then ripped the lid right off.

So far we’ve had “real America”, “real Virginians”, “real New Yorkers”, and lets not forget Obama the Muslim Arab that palls around with terrorists.  What’s next?  Well apparently Kay Hagen, Democrat running for Senate in North Carolina, is now Godless.  Did Elizabeth Dole get together with the stick shrew Ann Coulter?  Remember her lovely book Godless, the Church of Liberalism?  CRAP.  And I don’t know about all of you, but I always envision myself stuffing cheeseburgers down Ann’s throat after I’ve shaved her head!!

I disappointed in Elizabeth Dole to say the least.  I thought she had far more class than that.  And while I haven’t always agreed with her policies, I will say I always respected the woman.  For shame. is the best place for your personal blog or business site.
