Hello one and all, I’m back after a long absence brought on by a ton of school work and fun family events. In the past year I have had all of my children move home, plus a Daughter-in-Law and a brand spankin’ new grandson, I have brought myself within 9 classes of my BSIT (It seems it is required to do what I have been doing for 5 years….go figure), and I have watched both major political parties melt down from their own stupidity.
Last November I was disappointed by the number of seats in the House and Senate lost to the Moonbeam party; however, I didn’t despair. I knew that the country only needed two years of Dem. behavior to remind them why the Republicans were in the majority to start with. The Dem leadership hasn’t disappointed me. They have systematically taken apart every Republican backed initiative and even gone so far as to violate house rules by threatening to cut funds for disagreeing with them (http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0507/4068.html) and using the lives of American soldiers as a political tool by threatening to cut their funding.
One would think that the Republicans would be sitting on their hands to keep from clapping at their good fortune, not the case. Instead they have been providing the Dems enough fodder that both Hillary and Obama could be sharing oval office space at the end of the next election. If you look at this country’s tendency not to elect Republican senators, Rudy is currently the best the party has to offer. Even though I like what Rudy did for New York, I don’t see him getting the hard right Christian vote due to his stand on abortion. I like Fred Thompson’s ability to act and I think he is extremely charismatic, but I don’t think he is going to convince the Reagan Republicans that he is the guy to move this country and the rest of the world in the RIGHT direction. I have a feeling I’m not going to be happy for the next 5 to 10 years.
On to other recent issues on which I have been silent over the past year –
Only in the new century can someone like Paris Hilton get so much keyboard action. Next time she gets into trouble she should be sentenced to perform the only function at which she would be useful….Chum for a Discovery’s Shark Week.
Speaking of Chum candidates, I hear Michael Vick is getting a prison system reality show…How to Throw Away $60 million…The Price of Bein’ Down Wid Yer Homies.
To the Gathering of Eagles and their mission: Bravo Zulu
Now, I support the right of members of Move-on.org and Answer to voice their opinions about the war in Iraq and even protest in a peaceful manner; however, they don’t have the right to deface American public property or monuments to America’s fallen (of course this is the same kind of cretin that thinks WWII was America’s fault). The Gathering of Eagles protects those monuments by coming together (at their own expense…try to get that kind of dedication Mr. Soros) to place themselves between the MoonBats and the monuments. So far, where the Eagles gather, the Moonbats dwindle.
Well, that should about do it for this installment. With the presidential primaries on the horizon there should be several items that peak my interest and get my fingers ready to go, so check back often.
These are my views and opinions, but you are entitled to one too. If you have a question or comment, go ahead and fire way
