Archie Bunker on Democrats - Seems things really haven't changed much

You know the old saying "the more things change, the more things stay the same"? It's a very true statement. Watch the video below... it's supposed to be funny (and is) but it sends out a meaningful message as well. I wonder if the people watching it so many years ago got the message I'm talking about?

If you ever watched this show, you realize that Archie and Edith do not agree on many things, and politics was no exception. Unfortunately, most of the message surrounding Archie was that of a bitter white racist man filled with selfishness who used his wife as a doormat. In actuality, his wife could have stood up for herself, but refused. Archie was not a violet man... just loud. The other members of his family (especially his daughter and son-in-law) disagreed with him, continually showing him up and making a fool out of the "idiot white man".

If you can put that message aside and look at the truth behind some of what was being said on the show, you can see that there was a good message on both sides of the show's coin. They tried to make him look bad, and thus make anyone who agreed with him also look bad. But this little clip... well it said something else (and notice all the clapping in the background).

Notice how Edith tries to make the situation okay by saying that it's good for people to walk... thus apparently it's okay if we're told we can not have things we've been encouraged for so long to buy and use. It's the liberal mentality... somehow it's okay if we're told we must sacrifice for the greater good even if it makes no sense at all.

Archie:
The Democrats are doing the whole thing... the Democrats! and you put them in there.

The democrats way of ruining this country is to go tell us how we aught to make sacrifices. Oh, they're great on that stuff. But they're all gonna have us over the hill to the poor house. We ain't gonna be able to drive over there cause we ain't got no gas, we're gonna have to walk.

Edith:
The readers digest says walking is very good for you.

Archie:
The Readers Digest can always put a little joy into poverty. [...] For years all our lives they've been telling us to go out and buy stuff that use energy. [...] and now after all the big corporations have made billions and billions of dollars worth of profits... signals WHAM... they've changed. And after telling us for years that we can't live without this junk, now they tell us that we gotta live without it. The country is going straight into the dumper!!"

O'Reilly Slams Bush-Bashing European Press

"I'm better than you" is almost always the feeling that comes across when listening to the words coming out of the lips of the European press. To be honest, Bill sounds that way as well sometimes but at least he admits it and even says "we are better then them" in this video... referring to the terrorists. Based on what terrorists do... I would have to agree with Bill.

Listen to the whole video... it's really quite good. But don't miss out on the comments I've copied over from under the video on YouTube. Sometimes you find the most interesting (or stupid) people.




Bill OReilly Slams Bush-Bashing Liberal European Press (Video)
"I don't think it's fair. I don't think it's right. The European press really did a disservice to the United States by pedalling a lot of propaganda... I think the hysteria over the rebirth is way, way overdone... Americans are very uneasy about Obama dismantling the Bush anti-terror strategies that have kept us safe for the last 8 years... If we're hit here after Barack Obama dismantles all the terror measures that kept us safe- He's done."

promoting torture and secret prisons, bill is a nutcase.

WTFD3SECRATION
So your saying we should be pushovers like you are?

kdogg1000
So your saying we should be douche bag promoting tortures like you?

WTFD3SECRATION
Whatever it takes to keep America safe is what we need to do. I am tired of hearing all of this politically correct nonsense such as torture on terrorist is not right. How can you honestly say that? I usually can understand where someone comes from on a point but are you so niave to think that by doing nothing the terrorist will not harm us? We are too kind. We should be doing much worse tortures than water board.

Rantandreason
Because if you bothered to take a moment to think about what's going on you would see.
American citizens are now being kidnapped and brought into other countries and held without charge. This is why we had laws like this, not to protect other people, but to protect US! Now those rules have been broken by us and it's opened the flood gates for every country out there.
Lead by example, and kidnapping people from their countries and torturing them is the example that has been set.

WTFD3SECRATION
People? You got to be joking me. These are terrorist who have committed terrible crimes. And have killed innocent people. Lead by example? We have been leading by example by setting up our freedoms and we have been repeatably nice to these people we have asked them to give up their weapons of mass destruction. But yet they keep killing innocent people. And the second we try to defend ourselves Liberls have a hearattack because we actually have balls. And stand up for ourselves. Liberals = wimps

Rantandreason
And who supplied them with those weapons?

WTFD3SECRATION
SImple they either made them or got them from Russia or China. I know we gave Afganistan some tanks back in the 80's but we are mainly getting attacked with car bombs or suicide bombers. As for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Saddam Hussein had reportedly enough Anthrax to end the entire world.

Rantandreason
Saddam got them from US contractors in the 80s which he used on the Kurds. He used them with American military funding and machinery which was labelled as "dual use technology", aka helicopters set up with crop dusting technology.
American gets involved in other countries and pushes it's weight around. When you don't have an F-16 and you're a poor country or group how would you strike back at the people involved, weather directly or indirectly, in killing your people?

WTFD3SECRATION
But the whole reason we gave those to Afganistan was to stop Russia and to get rid of Russia.

Rantandreason
I'm talking about the ones america gave to iraq.
As for afganistan you have to look at it from a broader context. America trained the afgans (aka Osama) to fight the russians. They did that. Then america starts transgressing against muslim countries. It helps israel who oppresses the palestinians. Sanctions are placed on iraq after the first gulf war killing over 500,000 people. The shaw of iran, an elected leader, is assassinated by the CIA amongst others.
The trained attack dog bit back

ADEAL416
Excuse me, but the Shah of Iran was overthrown by the Ayatollah Khomeni, not assassinated by the CIA. And America doesn't "tresspass" against Muslim countries. We put our troops into Saudi Arabia at THEIR GOVERNMENT'S request. And yes, we help Israel, a country with a legitimate right to exist doesn't "oppress" Palestinians--all they do is what they need to do from getting blown to smithereens by these savages. Yeah, maybe they bit. But they turned on us, not the other way around.

Rantandreason
Assume for a moment America isn't so well off, and Australia is supplying anthrax to those "dirty liberals" who use it to ethnic cleanse the republicans.
Who do you go after? Who do you blame? And in your poverty how do you strike back?

WTFD3SECRATION
I go after the liberals because I can strike them easier. Also in my other comment we didn't give those weapons to hurt Afganistan we were after Russia in the cold war. Another thing about your comment above do you even live in America?

Rantandreason
a) going after "liberals" is just ignorant. To believe the the entirety of the political views in the world rests on a single line consisting of a right side and a left side is beyond moronic.
b) I don't tell people where i live. It has no consequence on our discussion. We are discussing the policies of america which influence other nations.
If you question my place of origin then I question weather you've ever left america to see the rest of the world and what perspective do you actually have

WTFD3SECRATION
A) Liberals is a fine line to classify people, however democrat and republican is not.
B) You obviously don't live in the United States so you really don't have much to say between what go's on with our country. As long as it doesn't mess with yours or threaten your rights ( However many you might still have left depending on where your living.)
And yes I have been to Mexico before. I did some charity work in Mexico 2 years ago. I will be returning their in March.

kdogg1000
if you think george bush is a conservative your insane.he has expanded the federal government the most since FDR and the new deal.record deficits,no child left behind, his amnesty push,the 700 billion dollar bail out, etc etc.and no im not a liberal.i'm against obama also he has no plans for ending the war.wake up out the left/right paradigm.politics is like pro wrestling,they put on a big show like they hate each other but behind the scenes they are friends and they laugh at the public.

WTFD3SECRATION
What the Hell?

kdogg1000
DONALD RUMSFELD, the US Defence Secretary and one of the most strident critics of Saddam Hussein, met the Iraqi President in 1983 to ease the way for US companies to sell Baghdad biological and chemical weapons components, including anthrax and bubonic plague cultures, according to newly declassified US Government documents.that's from the online times dec 31 2002.and your talk about wmd's.the us is only country is history crazy enough to ever actually use one.

WTFD3SECRATION
The U.S. is the only Country with enough brains to use Nuclear Weapons. Do you know how many lives we saved by using the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagisaki? Where did you get your information about Rumsfeld?

sidiggy1
If torturing terrorists is OK, then pass a law making it legal, and, find them guilty of terrorism in court and then torture them. Until they have a trial, they are SUSPECTED terrorists.

WTFD3SECRATION
But they aren't U.S. citizens. They don't deserve a trial.

sidiggy1
Actually, many of them are, in fact, U.S. citizens.
Even if they were not, why don't non-citizens deserve a trial? If you are arrested in a foreigh country, do you think you should have no right to a trial?
A trial is a basic HUMAN right, not just a right enjoyed by U.S. citizens.

WTFD3SECRATION
Because they committed terrible crimes. And how Brain-washed are you? Every single one of the people we torture were from the middle east. Or they had lived in America for a while ie. The terrorist that came up with 9/11 They also were seen commiting crimes. How the hell are we supposed to win a war? Thank God you aren't a general we wouldn't have a country. I've talked to people in the military they know whats going on in Iraq and they say that torture is necessary to get information.

sidiggy1
It's simple: (1) torture does not work, those being tortured will say anything, it does not make what they say true; (2) those being tortured are not proven criminals; I don't trust the military or CIA to decide who should or should not be tortured. That's why we have open, public courts as a CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT in this nation. You people have no idea what this country is supposed to be. It is sad.

WTFD3SECRATION
Dude what they say is recorded. If we can't find evidence that what they say is true we really torture them.


It just cracks me up when I read these things because often it is determined that neither side really knows what the hell they are talking about... and sometimes there are good arguments to make a person think and do a little research.

I wonder, in regards to the above conversations, where they are getting their facts and why they are coming at this subject from two very opposite ends. They can't both be right so either the news source is flat out lying or they are just interpreting it differently from one another. Just another one of those things to analysis.

Our downfall is officially the blood found on the hands of our House Democrats



Our downfall is officially the blood found on the hands of our House Democrats (all but 11).

Out, out damn spot!!!

Sorry Dems, those spots won't wash off quite as easy as it was for you to turn our country on a collision course with socialism.

Or maybe the true path of Pelosi and her mindless drones is further down the line?




The stimulus bill passed in the House 244 to 188 and not ONE of our GOP voted for the bill. That's actually shocking to me based on how many of them have let themselves be soaked up into the Liberal mentality in Washington D.C. Let's hope they stick up for us in other areas... but alas... it may be too little, too late.

LINK: A 40-Year Wish List - You won't believe what's in that stimulus bill.

LINK: A Stimulus With Merit, and Misses Too

LINK: House Passes Obama’s Stimulus Package
WASHINGTON — Without a single Republican vote, President Obama won House approval on Thursday for an $819 billion economic recovery plan as Congressional Democrats sought to hold down their own difference over the enormous package of tax cuts and spending.

Pelosi & Dems Start Celebrating Before Trillion $$$ "Stimulus" Binge Is Passed... Update: Bill Fails to Gain Single GOP Vote
The House Stimulus Bill failed to gain a single vote from the GOP today.

The Bill just passed 244 to 188.

177 Republicans and 11 Democrats opposed the democrat's 40 year wish list.

It looks like DEMOCRATS OWN THIS BOONDOGGLE.

Meanwhile... how many media sources reported our new president's blunder? Just one so far!

LINK: Super Genius President Tries to Enter Oval Office Through Window
At least when President Bush did it he wasn't at the White House...

New links just found:

LINK: David Drake: Dems Vote To Spend Money! Shocking!

When this stimulus fails, and it will - oh, how it will - MAKE SURE YOU REMEMBER WHO VOTED FOR IT AND WHO VOTED AGAINST IT.

LINK: David Drake: Pbama Clumsy, Mistakes Window For Door

Some say he can walk on water, but he hasn't yet mastered de-materializing through solid objects and walls. And those crazy White House windows and doors - they all look the same, much like Black people. What's up with that?

Obama Stimulus Package Breakdown {aka our bribe and their spending spree} Oh, and plenty of Donkey Drippings for everyone!!

Below is the transcript from Glenn Beck's website wherein it shows the detailed outline of the new BO stimulus package breakdown. It gives the where, the when and the how all this money will be spent to "boost our economy".

Article: What is the money being spent on-general breakdown between infrastructure, tax cuts, etc…?

Some highlights of the package, by the numbers:
• $825 billion total (as of 1/15/09)
• $550 billion in new spending, described as thoughtful and carefully targeted priority investments with unprecedented accountability measures built in.
• $275 billion in tax relief ($1,000 tax cut for families, $500 tax cut for individuals through SS payroll deductions)
• $ 90 billion for infrastructure
• $ 87 billion Medicaid aid to states
• $ 79 billion school districts/public colleges to prevent cutbacks
• $ 54 billion to encourage energy production from renewable sources
• $ 41 billion for additional school funding ($14 billion for school modernizations and repairs, $13 billion for Title I, $13 billion for IDEA special education funding, $1 billion for education technology)
• $ 24 billion for "health information technology to prevent medical mistakes, provide better care to patients and introduce cost-saving efficiencies" and "to provide for preventative care and to evaluate the most effective healthcare treatments."
• $ 16 billion for science/technology ($10 billion for science facilities, research, and instrumentation; $6 billion to expand broadband to rural areas)
• $ 15 billion to increase Pell grants by $500
• $ 6 billion for the ambiguous "higher education modernization."
[Source: Committee on Appropriations: January 15, 2009]

I was thinking earlier today and actually I've been thinking about it for some time now. How many Obama supporters have been frothing at the mouth waiting for this information to come out so they could go directly to the section called "Individuals" to find out how much THEY will get out of this stimulus package?

[Lately it's become quite clear that the most greedy people are also the most liberal... interesting, given how they point fingers at conservatives and accuse them of some of the most horrible greedy deeds.]

Out of the $825,000,000,000 stimulus package, individuals can expect to get about $500 ($1000 for a family). WOW... gee... I don't know about you, but I'm sure gonna spend that "well earned cash" on something HUGE that will boost the economy. Maybe a bit of groceries?

Doesn't it sound like we're giving away our freedom for a lousy $500? Freedom in one hand... $500 in the other. Gosh... what should I do?

And for those of us who did not "give away our freedom for a mere $500", let me remind you that it was actually stolen from you. It was stolen and then, with the slightest of hand, the thieves have slipped you a "little something" to bribe you into keeping quiet and letting your freedoms slip down the drain straight to socialism.

They pat you on the back and smile with a friendly little nod and wink saying "don't you worry {you poor bastard} we'll take care of you {especially if you fall into the right category} and make sure you're happy {as long as it doesn't interfere with our desires for more power} and free {ya... right}".

I am angry... and with each passing day, I get more angry.

I listen to the reports and listen to Obama's own words and I'm disgusted. I'm disgusted with people who sit near me at work... disgusted with the woman at my back (ironically) who thinks socialism would be better than "this"... disgusted with the BS that is slapping me in the face and how the Liberals think "it's all good" and Obama will be able to do no wrong.

Obama Stimulus Plan - White Males Need Not Apply: Here's something to make people angry... racism out in the open. But it's okay because it supports the liberal agenda and I'm sure someone will say it was just "an example" and that they wouldn't REALLY over look a qualified man just because he's white. No? It's been happening for years and now it's apparently going to become a part of policy.




I'm disgusted with Obama telling Republicans that they need to conform and assimilate into the Democrat party in order to get along and move forward when it's been the Democrats who have blocked all possibilities of such a thing when Bush was in office.

It's been one week and I'm angry.

I don't know if I can manage four years of my face being red with anger. I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong, I have no problem working with others even when we don't agree.

What I have a problem with is this Liberal gag reflex and the donkey flavoring dripping down my throat.

Buy the Democrat Crap Sandwich... It's For the Kids
Figures. Dem's Crap Sandwich Gives Cash to Illegal Aliens

Gas Prices on the Rise



And the prices start to rise...

They were down to $1.45 here and have been slowly creeping back up. But it's still only about $1.68 so I suppose we shouldn't complain, eh?

It isn't something BO will need to deal with right out of the starting block because Americans were WILLING to pay more than $4.00 a gallon back in October 2008. So he should have PLENTY of time to wait before he MUST deal with oil and drilling and making sure his FOLLOWERS don't have to pay for gas.

That is what he said, right? I won't have to pay for my mortgage or gas for my car any more. I'm FREE!! Oh wait... I'm not on the Obama Special Person List.

Unfortunately, gas prices will continue to rise and they will eventually get so high that we will wish they were only $4.00 a gallon.

Big question... how many idiots do you think are out there right now trying to stock pile gas? I foresee explosions in their near future. Yes... people truly are THAT stupid.

It seems awfully coincidental that the prices fell so dramatically just a short time before the election took place... and now they're conveniently out of the news and off the "need to deal with it now" list that Obama carries around so snugly in his BlackBerry; the BlackBerry he was told he couldn't keep but that he refuses to give up.

Obama has his spoiled brat moments, that's for sure.

Note: I never want to hear anyone say to me again that once gas prices hit a certain amount, they will never go back down to past dollar amounts because Americans get used to them. That "fact" was been proved false just a few months ago. Prices are not set in stone and they will fluctuate depending upon factors the average person can not control. It's insane how high it reached and then how low it fell. People are what make certain things worth certain amounts... we dictate value entirely. Oil is worth what it is because we say it is... nothing more.

Obama's Inauguration Balls as Compared to the People of Moses and Their Idol Gods: Obamorgy!!

Last night’s inauguration balls reminded me of the story of Moses and what happened when he left his people to wait for him in reverence while he went to obtain the Ten Commandments.

He turned his back for a short time and they built idols to false gods, made sacrificial offerings and self serving demands and… they became greedy for every known lust and desire.

The comparison is blindingly obvious... and I am not talking about how much money was spent (the stats on that are still up for debate). I'm talking about the idol worshippers flopping around on stages and dance floors. The Inaugural Balls have been a long tradition where the president and first lady dance and supporters celebrate... it's a party. What it isn't supposed to be is an orgy; or shall we call it a BO-orgy. Maybe an Oborgy... Obamorgy? Ya... that's it... Obamorgy!



Barack Hussein Obama is not a god nor is he the second coming of Christ. He is a man who wants to place his mark in the history books as many times as possible. What that mark is, we shall soon find out. The sickening display of worship shown on television last night was the same thing the sinners did as they waited for Moses to return. They did not want to be good… they did not want to do the right things; they wanted the complete and disgusting ability to do anything they desired no matter what the consequence. Even if that meant sacrificing innocent lives to false gods in order to have wealth and bodily pleasures. The main difference between then and now is that the people we witnessed last night were not punished for their actions nor did they feel in the least bit embarrassed or ashamed. It’s their right to tear down the moral fiber of America, right?





I wonder if that is what other countries see when they look at the United States. Do they think all Americans are like the ugly displays on television and the Internet? Do they look at Hollywood and think we’re all drunken bastards or crack-smoking whores? If that is where they look… no wonder their hatred runs deep.

Who can we blame for the picture other countries see when they look at America? We can SAFELY blame the elite Liberal Hollywood crowd and the backstabbing self-interest politicians and the ignorant citizens who hope to catch a little fame by sacrificing a friend or neighbor… and, let us not forget, the liberal media who loves them all.

America IS a great country and that greatness is entirely made up of the normal, average every-day citizen who cares for his or her family, friends, neighbors, the land we live upon and the freedoms we cherish. Unfortunately, those freedoms have been taken advantage of by political desires, sue-happy gold diggers, fame mongers and the greedy men and women who want everyone else to give rather than giving themselves.

We need to show the world the pictures we hold dear to our hearts of the REAL America. We need to turn their eyes away from our liberal entertainers… away from the selfish people found in our political and legal system. We need to take their attention away from the fame-hungry citizens who think being outrageous and loud will get them noticed by their idols.

We need to show this world that the America I am proud of is full of normal… very normal… regular people who work hard, sacrifice much, love their family, care for the sick and elderly, worry about losing their jobs, live in small houses and drive dented cars. They need to see that not all of us get to live in mansions and wear clothing twice before throwing them out. Oh, don’t get me wrong… I hope to make enough money to be able to give freely to charities, to live in a bigger house some day and not have to worry about finances… but that doesn’t make me a bad person; it means I have goals for my life and the freedom to accomplish them… or fail trying.


The subject of Pride

We are a nation of greatness. Some would say that means we are a nation of pride. I am proud of my country, truth be told, and I wouldn’t trade it to live anywhere else. I am not proud of some of our politicians, entertainers, journalists, etc. To me they are not true Americans… they are trying to tear this country down into their own molded, socialistic pile of greed producing, false charity, welfare induced empire. I am not proud of them.

I have taught my son that there is nothing wrong with being proud of your own accomplishments so long as you are good to others in the process. I am proud of him, for he has learned this lesson well.

After all that mention of being proud of my son and proud of my country (although, not all who live here), it indeed sounds like pride is a great factor in American life.

That is not a true assessment.

Although many Americans are proud of this country… most of us have it well balanced with humility; and not the false humility we see from the Hollywood and political elitists. Either you know how to be proud and humble or you don’t… it isn’t always easy to balance the two. Too much humility is a joke… too much pride is disgusting.

Pride is very much a part of human nature and it is not owned by any one nation. People from other countries have pride in their own lands and to say only Americans have it is a lie. How one deals with the feeling of pride is the true test… it is much like honesty, compassion and hypocrisy. At one point or another we all feel compassion for someone else or just don’t care, we all live a little of the “do as I say, not as I do” motto and we all have moments of truth and falsehoods. For anyone to say otherwise, would be ignorance or stupidity.

FAIL: The New "F" Word / HYPOCRISY: The Liberal Media's Motto

I had an email conversation yesterday regarding Rush Limbaugh's statement wherein he says he only needs four words regarding Obama's presidency... "I hope he fails".

What gets the Liberals in an uproar about this statement is... how on Earth can anyone feel such animosity towards another person. Why would anyone hope another person fails? I don't truly know how Rush feels... but I agree with the statement.

I hope the Liberal Socialistic mentality of the Left and the direction they are leading our country will fail. I hope it fails but I also hope THAT failure doesn't pull our country down into a pit we can not crawl back out of; into a hell of socialism and communism and the loss of freedom.

I don’t want Obama as "the person" to fail… I don’t like to see people fail (although failure is often a very large lesson to future success). What I want to fail is the big government that he represents. It isn’t “him” so much as it’s the “idea” he represents. I don’t have anything against him personally… at least, not yet; who knows what he’ll do to change that assessment. It probably wouldn’t take too terribly much because as it stands… I think some of his personal beliefs are far out and not even close to mine.

Part of the way the left “wins” people over is through guilt. We are made to feel guilty about the environment (even if we do our part); we are made to feel guilty about racism (even if we don’t care about the color of skin); we are made to feel guilty due to poverty (even if we give to charities)… and any number of guilt-driven ideals that keep “bad” Americans in check even if they are better than those preaching (such as Al Gore, Pelosi, Jackson, etc.).

I don’t give thousands of dollars to charities because I don’t have thousands of dollars to give… but I would gladly help my friends, family and neighbors if and when I can and in the way that I can. Thing is… I wouldn’t give and then go on television and interview about how wonderful I am; my charity or lack thereof is my business.

Liberals want to force charity on people and MAKE them give because they don’t want to do it themselves.

This all leads to the main topic of this post: Hypocrisy is an ugly, old wet, mildewing rag that’s been sitting around under a leaky faucet for a couple of months.

Hypocrisy is by far the driving force of my anger this past election year and even the past 8+ years. I've watched how the media raised Clinton up on a pedestal even when he was lying under oath and after all the other devious and questionable things he did. I watched how they used a pick axe to drive George Bush into the ground and blame everything, even hurricanes, on a man who could apparently do no right in their eyes.

And now I watch as the media ascends into the heavens as they elate with magnificent joy and lust, taking Obama above mortal humans and into the presence of the gods.

Obama is doomed... and yet... even when he fails and falls flat on his face, the media will forgive him and say it's because he was pressured beyond the ability of a black man to handle. Oh yes... they will make race the main reason for any faults he has. They won't say it's BECAUSE he's black... they will say that others wouldn't give him a fair chance because he's black and therefore he couldn't overcome that one thing he can't change; the color of his skin.

I've been taught and I've taught my children that all humans are equal. We are not necessarily equal in all areas of life as that would just be weird... we're by the very nature of humanity, different. Ultimately, however, we are the same. This weak shell we call skin isn't what makes us who we are. The fact I don't look exactly like everyone else doesn't mean I am less smart or incapable of doing great things. My mind and my physical abilities is what makes things possible or impossible for me. The color of my skin or the imperfections of my looks means NOTHING.

I’ve taught my kids that if the person who calls himself your friend truly isn’t your friend… go find another. Stand up for what you believe in. It can be harder to do than to say. It can be hard to stand up for what you believe in when others talk the big talk with smooth tongues and convince you that blue is yellow and the sun is actually the moon. The good thing is… they can’t pull off their magician tricks as easily as they used to based on our sources of information (Internet, etc). The bad thing is… they can change history easily enough with the use of the those same inventions.

I knew more and heard more and read more this election than ever before... partly because of my interest, but mostly because of our ability to search out and find out for ourselves.

Obama... as the man... I wish you well and good luck. I hope you see the light and change your ways to bring about a better America; a better capitalist America. Socialism be damned.

Obama... the big government... I hope you fail and fail fast. I hope socialism falls as fast as you and Americans finally say "enough is enough" and teach the liberals that they can't have everything their way. We are a nation of freedom... not restrictions to enhance the lives of those who don't really give a damn about me... about you... or about anyone on this planet other than their own self interests.

President Bush's Farewell Address to the Nation and Rourke's Sentiments of the Whole Situation

Predident Bush's Farewell Address to the Nation

THE PRESIDENT: Fellow citizens: For eight years, it has been my honor to serve as your President. The first decade of this new century has been a period of consequence -- a time set apart. Tonight, with a thankful heart, I have asked for a final opportunity to share some thoughts on the journey that we have traveled together, and the future of our nation.

Five days from now, the world will witness the vitality of American democracy. In a tradition dating back to our founding, the presidency will pass to a successor chosen by you, the American people. Standing on the steps of the Capitol will be a man whose history reflects the enduring promise of our land. This is a moment of hope and pride for our whole nation. And I join all Americans in offering best wishes to President-Elect Obama, his wife Michelle, and their two beautiful girls.
Tonight I am filled with gratitude -- to Vice President Cheney and members of my administration; to Laura, who brought joy to this house and love to my life; to our wonderful daughters, Barbara and Jenna; to my parents, whose examples have provided strength for a lifetime. And above all, I thank the American people for the trust you have given me. I thank you for the prayers that have lifted my spirits. And I thank you for the countless acts of courage, generosity, and grace that I have witnessed these past eight years.

This evening, my thoughts return to the first night I addressed you from this house -- September the 11th, 2001. That morning, terrorists took nearly 3,000 lives in the worst attack on America since Pearl Harbor. I remember standing in the rubble of the World Trade Center three days later, surrounded by rescuers who had been working around the clock. I remember talking to brave souls who charged through smoke-filled corridors at the Pentagon, and to husbands and wives whose loved ones became heroes aboard Flight 93. I remember Arlene Howard, who gave me her fallen son's police shield as a reminder of all that was lost. And I still carry his badge.

As the years passed, most Americans were able to return to life much as it had been before 9/11. But I never did. Every morning, I received a briefing on the threats to our nation. I vowed to do everything in my power to keep us safe.

Over the past seven years, a new Department of Homeland Security has been created. The military, the intelligence community, and the FBI have been transformed. Our nation is equipped with new tools to monitor the terrorists' movements, freeze their finances, and break up their plots. And with strong allies at our side, we have taken the fight to the terrorists and those who support them. Afghanistan has gone from a nation where the Taliban harbored al Qaeda and stoned women in the streets to a young democracy that is fighting terror and encouraging girls to go to school. Iraq has gone from a brutal dictatorship and a sworn enemy of America to an Arab democracy at the heart of the Middle East and a friend of the United States.

There is legitimate debate about many of these decisions. But there can be little debate about the results. America has gone more than seven years without another terrorist attack on our soil. This is a tribute to those who toil night and day to keep us safe -- law enforcement officers, intelligence analysts, homeland security and diplomatic personnel, and the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.

Our nation is blessed to have citizens who volunteer to defend us in this time of danger. I have cherished meeting these selfless patriots and their families. And America owes you a debt of gratitude. And to all our men and women in uniform listening tonight: There has been no higher honor than serving as your Commander-in-Chief.

The battles waged by our troops are part of a broader struggle between two dramatically different systems. Under one, a small band of fanatics demands total obedience to an oppressive ideology, condemns women to subservience, and marks unbelievers for murder. The other system is based on the conviction that freedom is the universal gift of Almighty God, and that liberty and justice light the path to peace.
This is the belief that gave birth to our nation. And in the long run, advancing this belief is the only practical way to protect our citizens. When people live in freedom, they do not willingly choose leaders who pursue campaigns of terror. When people have hope in the future, they will not cede their lives to violence and extremism. So around the world, America is promoting human liberty, human rights, and human dignity. We're standing with dissidents and young democracies, providing AIDS medicine to dying patients -- to bring dying patients back to life, and sparing mothers and babies from malaria. And this great republic born alone in liberty is leading the world toward a new age when freedom belongs to all nations.

For eight years, we've also strived to expand opportunity and hope here at home. Across our country, students are rising to meet higher standards in public schools. A new Medicare prescription drug benefit is bringing peace of mind to seniors and the disabled. Every taxpayer pays lower income taxes. The addicted and suffering are finding new hope through faith-based programs. Vulnerable human life is better protected. Funding for our veterans has nearly doubled. America's air and water and lands are measurably cleaner. And the federal bench includes wise new members like Justice Sam Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts.


When challenges to our prosperity emerged, we rose to meet them. Facing the prospect of a financial collapse, we took decisive measures to safeguard our economy. These are very tough times for hardworking families, but the toll would be far worse if we had not acted. All Americans are in this together. And together, with determination and hard work, we will restore our economy to the path of growth. We will show the world once again the resilience of America's free enterprise system.
Like all who have held this office before me, I have experienced setbacks. There are things I would do differently if given the chance. Yet I've always acted with the best interests of our country in mind. I have followed my conscience and done what I thought was right. You may not agree with some of the tough decisions I have made. But I hope you can agree that I was willing to make the tough decisions.

The decades ahead will bring more hard choices for our country, and there are some guiding principles that should shape our course.

While our nation is safer than it was seven years ago, the gravest threat to our people remains another terrorist attack. Our enemies are patient, and determined to strike again. America did nothing to seek or deserve this conflict. But we have been given solemn responsibilities, and we must meet them. We must resist complacency. We must keep our resolve. And we must never let down our guard.

At the same time, we must continue to engage the world with confidence and clear purpose. In the face of threats from abroad, it can be tempting to seek comfort by turning inward. But we must reject isolationism and its companion, protectionism. Retreating behind our borders would only invite danger. In the 21st century, security and prosperity at home depend on the expansion of liberty abroad. If America does not lead the cause of freedom, that cause will not be led.

As we address these challenges -- and others we cannot foresee tonight -- America must maintain our moral clarity. I've often spoken to you about good and evil, and this has made some uncomfortable. But good and evil are present in this world, and between the two of them there can be no compromise. Murdering the innocent to advance an ideology is wrong every time, everywhere. Freeing people from oppression and despair is eternally right. This nation must continue to speak out for justice and truth. We must always be willing to act in their defense -- and to advance the cause of peace.


President Thomas Jefferson once wrote, "I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past." As I leave the house he occupied two centuries ago, I share that optimism. America is a young country, full of vitality, constantly growing and renewing itself. And even in the toughest times, we lift our eyes to the broad horizon ahead.
I have confidence in the promise of America because I know the character of our people. This is a nation that inspires immigrants to risk everything for the dream of freedom. This is a nation where citizens show calm in times of danger, and compassion in the face of suffering. We see examples of America's character all around us. And Laura and I have invited some of them to join us in the White House this evening.

We see America's character in Dr. Tony Recasner, a principal who opened a new charter school from the ruins of Hurricane Katrina. We see it in Julio Medina, a former inmate who leads a faith-based program to help prisoners returning to society. We've seen it in Staff Sergeant Aubrey McDade, who charged into an ambush in Iraq and rescued three of his fellow Marines.

We see America's character in Bill Krissoff -- a surgeon from California. His son, Nathan -- a Marine -- gave his life in Iraq. When I met Dr. Krissoff and his family, he delivered some surprising news: He told me he wanted to join the Navy Medical Corps in honor of his son. This good man was 60 years old -- 18 years above the age limit. But his petition for a waiver was granted, and for the past year he has trained in battlefield medicine. Lieutenant Commander Krissoff could not be here tonight, because he will soon deploy to Iraq, where he will help save America's wounded warriors -- and uphold the legacy of his fallen son.

In citizens like these, we see the best of our country - resilient and hopeful, caring and strong. These virtues give me an unshakable faith in America. We have faced danger and trial, and there's more ahead. But with the courage of our people and confidence in our ideals, this great nation will never tire, never falter, and never fail.

It has been the privilege of a lifetime to serve as your President. There have been good days and tough days. But every day I have been inspired by the greatness of our country, and uplifted by the goodness of our people. I have been blessed to represent this nation we love. And I will always be honored to carry a title that means more to me than any other - citizen of the United States of America.


And so, my fellow Americans, for the final time: Good night. May God bless this house and our next President. And may God bless you and our wonderful country. Thank you. (Applause.)
Thank you, President Bush... for all that you've done to help protect this country during a turning point no president would have wished upon any other president. You handled it well and you stuck to your beliefs. Ah, yes... I don't agree with all of your decisions, it's true; but in regard of protecting us... I thank you.

~~

And we have an actor sticking up for our dear president... Rourke.

"President Bush was in the wrong place at the wrong time, I don't know how anyone could have handled this situation.

"I don't give a f**k who's in office, Bush or whoever, there is no simple solution to this problem... I'm not one of those who blames Bush for everything. This s**t between Christians and Muslims goes back to the Crusades, doesn't it.

"It's too easy to blame everything on one guy. These are unpredictable, dangerous times, and I don't think that anyone really knows quite what to do."

Blaming one man has been the liberal media's job the past eight years... now it's their job to continue with this line of thinking by STILL claiming all that Obama must endure is somehow George Bush's fault. Lovely.

David Drake's 2008 LPOS™ Award




Scrubbing Pbamaubbles, for scrubbing his web site on a regular basis
in order to avoid being held accountable for his words and positions.

I lost count of how many scrubs occured on BO's site over the past election. He is a liar, a cheat and a fraud. If he pulls anything GOOD out of being president, it will be a miracle. Be very assured that no matter what BO does, the media will make every possible (and perhaps even illegal) attempt to make sure our beloved new Uber-Liberal president is protected from mistakes by making sure the truth is ignored or pooh-pooh'd. And he will be elated and put upon a pedestal when he makes even the smallest achievement come true. He will be treated like the spoiled brat child of a movie star and one day we will know the truth of everything.

Past awards by David:
2007
2006

Will illegal immigrants hire American citizens before too long?

LINK: The Shape of Things to Come: Obamanomics

This video says a lot... it tells us how bad it could get and it also hints to the way big business has all along not cared one bit what the law says in regards to hiring illegal immigrants. We have not done anything to stop the hiring of illegals... at least not REALLY done anything.

I believe the video was created to show how bad it could get for LEGAL citizens when it comes to finding a job because illegal immigrants will not only have the jobs, they will own the businesses. Why? Well, because Liberals, as per usual, will grant them the rights of American citizens even if they have not become American themselves. They will steal our jobs and then our businesses and eventually our country.

I'm all for immigrants coming to America and I'm all for them obtaining legal status by going through the proper channels. I will not accept any other method.

Good-bye Condi... we will miss your truth and honesty

LINK: Condi Blasts "Loathsome" CNN Reporter For Trashing US

Zain Verjee: ...But the United States is so loathed!

Condoleezza Rice: The United States is not loathed. The policies of the United States are sometimes not liked. People don't like that we've had to say hard things and do hard things about terrorism. People don't like that we've spoken fiercely for the right of Israel to defend itself at the same time we've worked for a Palestinian State. But I have to go back. So many people in and around when that incident happened told me how embarrassed they were by the fact that that had happened.

Verjee: Do you regret...

Condoleezza Rice: No. Only that the focus of those who were supposed to be reporting history didn't focus on the historical moment which was- This was the president of the United States in Baghdad, for goodness sakes, with the freely elected prime minister in a show of friendship.


And the ignorant comments under this video... some of these people really don't deserve to be American. And if they are NOT American, then lets hope they stay that way!!

Robert Redford Liberal Idiot... Sigh

LINK: Robert Redford states: Bush Was Morally Criminal, Devious and Sneaky

I really don't have much to say here other than I have lost several actors this past election year based entirely on their stance with politics and their idiotic remarks. Oh, it could be that I just didn't know already what they thought... I was blind to the truth.
