Gee, the government does something which happens to be a conservative hallmark, it works, and then it gets suspended.

I'm talking, of course, about the Cash For Clunkers program, which has now been suspended.

The $1 billion program has apparently come close to running out of money because of it's popularity. Imagine that. Putting cash back into people's pockets really gives them an incentive to go out and buy.

Now, what is it that Republicans wanted to do instead of a stimulus? Oh, yeah - lower taxes! Imagine if Americans were able to keep more of their hard-earned money instead of having to give it away to the wasteful government?

The problem with liberals... that they're on the wrong side of every issue. If you ask a liberal what his position is on Iraq, Iran, Guantanamo, health care, the economy, etc., he will always choose the side that either makes America out to be the bad guy or the side that would damage America/the American image the most. We all know this. They want to see America fail because then they could joyfully exclaim how they predicted our failure. This is why when Rush said he wanted Obama to fail, the Left had a fit. If Obama fails, America wins. If America wins, liberals lose.

As someone who just went through high school and is entering her sophomore year of college, I have seen firsthand what the "future" thinks of America. It's a fad nowadays to say how hypocritical the United States is and how it only does something if it's to our advantage. It was cool to have anti-Bush pins on backpacks and sit outside during 2nd period with signs that say END THE WAR (by the way, where are those people now? We're still in Iraq. Where's the protests demanding our troops come home now?). Hillary Clinton told us that it was patriotic to question any administration. But when I question the Obama Administration, liberals tell me I'm just a neocon who values the "almighty dollar higher than [people's] well-being."

Now, even if the perfect analogy is staring a liberal straight in the face, the liberal in question can't connect the dots. For example, friend #1 is very studious and works hard to get the grades she's earned. Friend #2 spent the first year partying, was put on academic probation, took 4 baby classes second semester, and has around the same GPA as friend #1. Friend #1 was recently complaining how it's not fair that she works harder than friend #2 but still has the same GPA. I just laughed to myself, partly because arguing with friend #1 has gotten me no where in the past few years, and party because my GPA is higher than both of theirs. Anyhow, friend #1 is basically living socialism (she works harder but is given the same reward as the slacker) yet somehow she's still an Obama fan who believes in all things liberal.

Thus, I think it's impossible to change the mind of a liberal. I've tried it before, and believe me, it doesn't work. They try to discredit everything you throw at them. They don't like it when you tell them something that goes against everything they stand for (in fact, they might get so angry they remove you as a friend on Facebook). The only people who can really be shown that liberalism is a disease are people who are on the fence, people who haven't really made up their mind yet. True liberals won't ever change and will praise Obama 'till the day they die. But, silly people who actually thought Obama was who he said he was and who are now experiencing buyer's remorse can change. Let's just hope we can bring them around before it's too late.

100+ Iranians Dead

Since the election, over 100 Iranian protesters have died at the hand of controlling Islamo-fascist mullahs. They have been shot, and they have been beaten to death. Prisoners have had their fingernails ripped off and have been forced to lick filthy toilet bowls. This is all because the Iranians demand freedom - the freedom to legitimately choose their leader. Where is the outcry?

Instead of Quality, Affordable Health Coverage for All Americans, the health care reform bill is now America's Affordable Health Choices Act. Thank goodness, because if it actually passes, I would rather have the acronym that doesn't prove to the world that we really are stupid.


Thank you to Old NFO at Nobody Asked Me... because he provided the link in his most recent post to the actual AAHCA bill. I've been searching for it online for ages...maybe it wasn't put up until now, but anyways, glad I finally have it.


On a Facebook poll about universal health care:
358,201 voted NO (74.7%)
104,794 voted YES (21.8%)
16,724 voted MAYBE (3.5%)

This gives me some hope because a lot of Facebook users are young adults, who tend to be liberal. Also, with a poll with that many participants, I feel like it gives an accurate projection of the rest of Americans' sentiments. However, you can't tell me that the results of this poll are way off from what the results would be if the poll was conducted by a more reliable pollster. But what do I know, I'm not Gallup or Rasmussen. I just like seeing things like this because it makes me feel more hopeful.


And finally, some humor to end the day. :)

Reminds me of the commercial I said I would have loved to make.

Found over at Euripides' blog.

Obama Attempts Apology

Totally half-assed.

Some Local Liberal Media Bias for You, but also some Good News!

I usually bring my iPod to work, but I forgot it so I had to listen to the radio this morning. They did the news maybe five times, and three of those times the Cambridge incident and the president's health care address were mentioned. I was so irritated that the woman reading the news said things like, "He showed his ID, he was in his own house, and they arrested him anyways." It's people like that that vote, people who don't know all the facts and still weigh in on the issue. And then she says, "People are still tuning in to watch the president speak, because 24.7 million watched him talk the other night." She conveniently forgot to mention that his ratings have been going down, and down, and down....

The good news is that Harry Reid announced that the Senate will not be voting on QAHCAA until the fall! What an excellent setback for Obama.

Wikipedia Giving False Information on "Racist" Cambridge Incident

Mr. President, please stick to the teleprompter.

Sgt. James Crowley was doing his job and and the President of the United States told him he acted "stupidly." Now isn't that the pot calling the kettle black. Keepin' it classy, Obama. Keeping it's classy.

In fact, the only people who acted stupidly were Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and the president himself. Gates is a black professor at Harvard University where he is the director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. From what I read in snippets of the police report, he does not sound like a man who has achieved multiple acclamations and awards. Rather, he sounds like an ill-mannered, arrogant race-biter who's looking to make some money (he's apparently already planning a documentary on racial profiling).

When I Googled Mr. Gates to find out some more about him, I found that the July 16 incident had already been added to the Wikipedia entry on him. I was disappointed to discover that the entry is rather slanted and even distorts and leaves out parts of the story in order to present Gates in a more favorable way. Now, I understand that Wikipedia articles can be written and edited by anyone, but the article is currently disabled for editing due to alleged vandalism until July 24. The section on the "racist" incident also has a notification above it which states it may change rapidly because it is a current event.

He doesn't exactly look like he's "coming quietly," does he?

The Wikipedia article makes no mention of the fact that Sgt. Crowley has been teaching a class on racial profiling alongside a black police officer at the Lowell Police Academy for five years. Nor does it mention that Crowley was hand-picked to teach the class by the former police commissioner Ronny Watson, who is black.

Crowley was doing his job. He was responding to a call for a possible breaking and entering. Obviously the first step would be to require ID from the person in the house in order to make sure Gates was who he said he was. If Gates had simply done what a normal person would do and shown his ID and told Crowley "thank you," none of this would have happened. Instead, Gates had a fit and was rightly arrested for disorderly conduct.

I hope Crowley does not back down and apologize, and I think it's a shame that the charges were dropped against Gates. So much for justice being blind and the law applying to every citizen.

Obama's Meddling

I was going to watch the Obama Show last night, but I went out to dinner with my family instead. But from what I have read and heard, the president didn't say anything new; rather, he took some tips from Joe Biden and plagiarized....The Matrix, no less.

Is the president's so-called blue pill the painkiller? It would essentially "make you well," or at least give you the illusion of being well. But hey, it's cheaper.

Remember this April 30th statement?

"You just get into some very difficult moral issues” when considering whether “to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill."

If it's a moral issue, why is the government getting involved? It can't touch abortion, but somehow it can touch personal medical decisions? It is none of the government's business if, at 90 years old, I want to get a pacemaker and take the chance that I could live another few years. Obama needs to learn that no one wants him and the government meddling in personal medical decisions. No one wants there to be a person, bureau, or what have you, in between them and their doctor. I am not looking forward to the day where someone I or someone I know is denied treatment because it is too expensive [luckily this guy has a shot at life again].

The President is trying, and failing, to garner the amount of support he needs to get this done. And hopefully, this will be the beginning of the end for him. A lot of people think that this is his defining moment. He will either be successful and then be truly unstoppable, or he will fail and never be able to come back from from it. I'm praying for the latter.

Obamacare Commercial

If I had the time, I would love to shoot a commercial like you would see for Lunesta or Zantac, but have it be a satire on Obamacare.

For all too many of us, quality health care is a necessity we simply cannot afford. There are a number of reasons why quality health care is unaffordable, but the result is usually the same. We miss the many benefits of annual doctor visits, preventative care, and even treatment for acute and chronic illnesses. We don't have the luxury of knowing that we or our loved ones will be taken care of if the unexpected happens. It can be frustrating, stressful, and affect how we function every day. What's more, just lacking quality health care may have an impact on your health. If you are among the millions who are currently experiencing a lack of quality health care coverage, we're here to help.

**If you are healthy, sick, or may become sick, Obamacare may not be right for you. Side effects include patient dumping, higher taxes, waiting months or years for average treatment, doctor shortages, and even death.

Talk to your government-sponsored doctor so he can tell you Obamacare is right for you.

Paid for the by U.S. Government

I've been spending the afternoon researching and reading articles on this Obamacare nonsense. It's amazing to me that there are people who actually think it's a good idea. Look, I'm all for some kind of reform, but definitely not reform to this scale, and certainly not the kind of reform that Obama wants pushed through in a matter of weeks. Remember the fiasco we know as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act? We were told if it wasn't pushed through, there would be dire consequences (more dire than what's happening now? Doubt it). We're hearing the same thing about health care reform. Hmmm....

Two excellent articles I found on the subject:,0,213990.story

Obama: Time to Get This Done

Obama is urging that it's time to get health care reform done. In fact, he wants it done before Congress goes on its August recess.

Could someone explain to me why Obama and company think it's a good idea to push through substandard, shoddy health care reform when something much less complicated, the stimulus package (which could have been even LESS complicated if they just cut taxes), was also pushed through in a matter of weeks and has proven to be a fiasco? And why no one else seems to be asking this question?

Also, why in the world do we have unqualified people making crucial decisions? Obama, Pelosi, Fwank, Reid, and the rest of the lot aren't doctors or insurance providers, nor do they comprehend the term "private sector." Obama has never held a job in a private company or small business. He has never practiced medicine or fought in a war. Yet he acts as if he knows it all, and he's doing a damn good job fooling a lot of people.

How about government reform? I want it to be reformed into the government our brilliant forefathers intended it to be (who didn't draft up a constitution in three weeks (granted, it took the Articles of Confederation to lead to the Constitution)). No more American royalty (Obamas and Pelosi come to mind here); no more infringement of rights (according to some, the 2nd Amendment doesn't apply to states??); no more spending of tax dollars on bailouts, shopping trips to London, unnecessary military planes for elected officials (*cough* Pelosi *cough*), and a host of other absurdities.

But something tells me that anyone who runs on a platform for government reform would not be elected and would be forever ruined by state-run media....

Bombs and bullets won't stop Al Qaeda?

I saw over at Newsbusters that CNN's Michael Ware doesn't think the United States can win the war in Afghanistan "with bombs and bullets," and that it would take "cutting deals" with Al Qaeda in order to come to a solution.

Mr. Ware, back in the 1930s and '40s, there was this guy, Adolf Hitler. European leaders knew he was a threat and wanted to protect their countries, but they didn't want to go to war with him. So they appeased him by giving concession after concession, thinking that cutting deals would save them (please also see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict). However, one thing led to another, and that's when we had something called World War II. Bombs and bullets stopped Hitler and the Nazis, Mr. Ware, not peace talks or deals.

Honestly, the stupidity of people just blows my mind.

Expecting this BS for the next 3.5 years

In an attempt to redirect the attention away from the Obama Administration's failings on every issue under the sun, Newsweek came out saying that Attorney General Eric Holder may be appointing a prosecutor to investigate the "brutal interrogation practices" of the Bush Administration.

Not only is the attention continuously being brought back to the Bush Administration's anti-terror techniques, the media and those stricken with Obamamania can't seem to get over the novelty of having a black man seated in the most powerful position in the world. In the opening of the Newsweek article, Holder is quoted as saying, "I was so struck by the fact that for the first time in history an African-American was presiding over this celebration of what our nation is all about." It's always, always about race for these people; it's never about capabilities.

It's been six months. Despite the trillions that have been spent, unemployment has risen and the recession has not improved. If insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results, Washington's Democrats are proving to be downright deranged. They must be running out of ideas if a second stimulus is all they can come up with (God knows they won't consider tax cuts because that would be giving in to the enemy). They regurgitated that "This is the worst recession since the Great Depression" line in order to garner support for Stimulus I. So by suggesting Stimulus II, are they saying they were wrong and that this recession is worse than the Great Depression? I wasn't around then, but I'm pretty sure it's not quite that bad. Will Stimulus II have another 8,000 earmarks? You betcha. But I sleep better at night knowing that a little field mouse population is safe.

I'll be expecting similar b.s. for the next three and a half years.

At work today, one woman was talking about how there's no jobs here because everything's made in China and elsewhere, and another woman said, "Obama's going to create jobs!" I almost fell out of my chair.

Ah, the global warming nutjobs

They are legitimately insane. Really.

I don't know where everyone lives, but in New York, the weather has been terrible. Something like 25 out of the 30 days in June there was precipitation. But, it hasn't been insanely hot out, and there have been some record cold days in some parts of the country. Those of us on to the global warming scam use this to our advantage. However, the global warming alarmists out there somehow use it to their advantage as well.

While I was lifeguarding today, a woman came up to me and we were chatting about how nice the weather finally is, and then she says, "You know this global warming is causing us to be a month behind. Like, this month is really June and last month was really May." I just nod and smile. But when someone like her tells me that, I just nod and smile.
Also at my job, this 70 something year old guy was asking me about college, and I said I was taking some criminal justice courses. He goes on to say, "Bush is gonna need you," and I'm like, Uh..... So then he goes on a mini rant about how he's ruined this country and the world and blah blah and he's worried about my future and my children's future and all I said was, "I'm worried about what OBAMA is doing." And he says, "Well we still have to see..." No, I think the writing is on the wall. These liberals don't know how to admit defeat!

News Flash! Obama More Catholic Than POPE!

It came as a shock today to find out that Obama, who listened to a racist Protestant preacher for twenty years and who often boasts his Muslim background, is in fact more Catholic than the Bishop of Rome. Of course, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend over at Newsweek wouldn't know what it meant to be Catholic if Jesus Christ himself told her.

As a practicing Catholic, I'm disgusted at her ignorance and obvious disdain for the Church. In an attempt at journalism, she falsely claims (and this paragraph just exasperates me to no end),

"In truth, though, Obama's pragmatic approach to divisive policy (his notion that we should acknowledge the good faith underlying opposing viewpoints) and his social-justice agenda reflect the views of American Catholic laity much more closely than those vocal bishops and pro-life activists. When Obama meets the pope tomorrow, they'll politely disagree about reproductive freedoms and homosexuality, but Catholics back home won't care, because they know Obama's on their side. In fact, Obama's agenda is closer to their views than even the pope's."

1. Pragmatic approach to divisive policy? You mean, how he just OKed government funding for embryonic stem cell research? How he voted no three times on a bill that would provide babies of failed abortions with medical care? How he gave NKorea a stern talking to and ignored the pleas for help in Iran? How when someone comes to him with a different approach, his answer is, "I won"? Yes, very pragmatic, I say.

2. Reproductive freedoms is such a lovely term for mass baby killing. I don't think it's possible to disagree on homosexuality itself. You don't have to approve of what they do per say, but I don't think disagree is the right word here. Also, Kathleen should pick up a Catechism and read 2358, which says,
"They [homosexuals] must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided."

3. "But Catholics back home won't care, because they know Obama's on their side." Don't make me laugh, Kathleen. Obama's on Obama's side. He fooled you and made you believe he's on your side, but you're a lot more dense than us conservatives/libertarians/anyone who's been on to him from the beginning.

It never ceases to amaze me (though I should be used to it by now) how these so-called journalists think they can say whatever they want about the Catholic Church, and its members, yet if someone speaks out against Islam, s/he is a bigot.

Ohio Hate Crime

A black family of 4 and two friends (also black) were confronted by a group of about 50 teenagers, who were all white. One of the teenagers blindsided and assaulted one of the adults and when another adult stepped in to help, the teenagers ganged up on him causing him a concussion and multiple bruises to his head and eye. The group was shouting, "This is our world," and "This is a white world." Al Sharpton and others have come out condemning this racist act of violence.

Okay, so that story is only halfway true. What really happened was a group of black teenagers attacked a white family and two friends. What?? I thought it was the whites who were the bad guys all the time. Right now, the case is NOT being classified as a hate crime. ???? Not really sure why not, because if it was the other way around, it would be.

Favor Needed

I haven't updated lately but I do need a favor :)

I've entered a contest and need as many votes as I can get. It's for a $1000 scholarship.

And if you're feeling particularly awesome, you could bookmark the link and vote every single day until August 12 (because apparently you can vote every 8 hours?).

Thanks so much!

On another note, I briefly watched the Michael Jackson memorial ("briefly" being the key word here) and not 2 minutes after I put it on did Al Sharpton come on and rant about how MJ brought all the races together and made everyone feel comfortable enough to vote for a black president. Yeah....I'm sure Michael Jackson was the reason Obama won and it didn't have anything to do with ACORN, people voting for him simply because he was black, or the fact that the MSM was in bed with him throughtout the election process.
