Happy New Year! And Anniversary To B.A.D.

I'd lie to wish everybody a




and a great 2010!

I have to say 2009 was a pretty good year. I said this of 2008...

If I had to grade 2008 I would give it a B. Uneventful on a personal level but after 2006 and 2007 to some extent that's really not a bad thing. There is no question if I stopped and took stock of everything that has happened this year it would be more good than bad by a pretty fair margin.

I'd say the exact same thing of 2009. maybe even better than 2008.

Also it's the 3rd Anniversary of Banned And Dangerous. The original point of this blog was to post the idiocy of Conservative trolls. This pleasant post from Chinaskee was one of the first posts here and it shows how much many Conservatives embrace the "culture of life"

I
hate to burst all of your bubbles but you leftist schmucks didn't win anything

last November. The Democrats won and you aren't Democrats. Sure you might call
yourself Democrats but in reality you're just a bunch of leftist schmucks. You
won nothing. Ned Lamont lost. Tammy Duckworth lost. In fact the whole entire
"Let's Lynch George W. Bush " crowd lost. You schmucks on this board are nothing
but a shrill and vocal minority who have nobody looking out for you in
Washington. There will be no impeachment. There will be no surrender in the war
on terrorism. None of the things you powerless leftists morons wish for will
come to pass in the next two years. You're the useful idiots Lenin wrote about
and you're all too fucking stupid to even realize it. In closing I only have
this to say. I hope at least one of you America hating scumbags gets yourself killed by a drunk driver tonight. And I mean that most sincerely. And I hope when it happens you bleed for a long time before you finally gasp that final breath. Fuck all of you leftist bastards each and every one.

After 2008 and the election of Obama the Chinaskee's of the world have only gotten crazier.; Thank you to everybody for the making the last 3 years great!

Uber Nip Is Pissed That Deb's Family Asked For People To Make Donations To Newshounds In Her Name

Uber's other side starting to show itself

I am really saddened to hear of the passing of Deb.
I have been around for more than four years and got to the point where I could start reading a thread on the mains and know it was by Deb.

I along with almost everyone here will miss her dearly.

However,

On the Mains, is Ellen really asking people to donate to News Hounds because Deborah died?
I can understand family members asking for donations to help in the prevention of the disease that brought down their loved one, but I've never seen an organization use the death of an associate to raise money for their own benefit.
Maybe I'm looking at this wrong and am reacting to an initial gut feeling but that just doesn't seem right.
It's like if the CEO of General Electric died of Parkinsons and GE sent out a press release saying "We would appreciate any donations you could give to help make this company become what our dear departed hoped it would be".
Hopefully I am wrong and I am missing something.
I welcome corrections.

Don't get your panties in a wad Ubernip NOBODY is forcing you to part with your money. You can continue to use it for your usual pursuits. Whiskey and Brett Favre posters.

NFL Week 16 Comments & Thoughts

Since my Chargers have wrapped up the no.2 seed on x-mas night (and in convincing fashion), I can finally watch Week 16 without yelling at my HDTV. Good feeling.

* the AFC picture is still murky, but the remaining seeds are set in stone: Indianapolis and San Diego have by weeks thought the Wild-Card Weekend (the Colts have home-field advantage for the rest of the playoffs); New England beats Jacksonville 35-7, wrapping up the AFC East; and Cincinnati wins against Kansas City 17-10, they claim the AFC North. The last loose ends to be taken care of are the remaining Wild-Card slots, and the 3rd and 4th seeds.

*Speaking of Wild Card spots: the Jaguars and Dolphins are both out thanks to those losses today, meanwhile the Pittsburgh Steelers stay alive by beating the Baltimore Ravens 23-20. Gotta give Big Ben credit: just when we thought the Steel Curtain had all but fallen against Cleveland, they get their shit together and stringed together a set of wins that signify, to me, the Chargers aren't the only dangerous team to look out for, should the Steelers get in.

Late Edit: More thoughts:

* The New York Jets beat the unbeaten Colts. Wait a minute, what the f@^k!?

* The Saints also lost again as well...to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It's one thing to lose against a desperate team trying to stay alive in the postseason hunt. What does it say when you lose to a team with nothing to lose (and a team that's 2-12 on the season no less)?

* If there was a playoff-hopeful team that doesn't deserve to be in the postseason, it's the New York Giants. If you're a fan and you watched that monstrosity of a game, you have my sympathies. No heart and sure as hell demonstrated no pride for the fact that this was their last game at Giants stadium. As a result, the G-men get trounced by Carolina 41-9.

Thoughts And Prayers For Deb and Her Family.

Sadly Newshounds Deborah had passed away after a year long battle with an Brain aneurysm. Our thoughts and prayers go to her family and the Newshounds family.

'Tis only a step foreword

But an important step nonetheless.

Without a single Republican vote, the United States Senate passed a sweeping health care reform bill in a landslide, shortly after 7:00 in the morning on Christmas Eve. After months of intense back and forth, and more than three weeks of continuous floor debate, the bill moved through the Senate by a gaping 60-39 margin.

The House of Representatives previously passed a much stronger version of reform with a tighter 220-215 margin. The two versions will now be merged in conference committee negotiations, with the House pushing for more generous subsidies for those required to buy insurance and the Senate attempting to hold the line. The cross-Capitol negotiations will not involve the Republican Party.

Am I deeply disappointed that there isn't a public option or an expansion of Medicare? Yeah. The important thing is that we, finally, after decades of debates and setbacks, are beginning to reform our broken healthcare system. It's far from perfect, but that's why there's the conference to merge the House and Senate bills over the next few months. Be joyful that we got the damn bill and passed!

In the words of the late, great Ted Kennedy: "The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die."

Merry Christmas And Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas if you prefer. For those of you who may get upset if we don't mention the Lord Jesus, the reason many celebrate this the most sacred holiday we don't wish to offend so this is for you...

Not even during the winter holidays can Obama catch a break from conservatives

My take on a conservative rooting for President Obama can be found at Jonathan's Corner. Please read and comment, and the Count is more than welcome to cut-and-paste my post onto B&D if he wishes.

Edit From The Count: Good stuff Jonathan I do not agree that saying bad things about our government on December 23rd is some kind of sin akin to saying something bad about a person after their death. I do find this quote from Blankley quite funny though...

Taking stock this second Christmas after the election of Barack Obama to the presidency, as a conservative Republican (with growing tea-party tendencies) I'm filled with a thrilling, unexpected hopefulness that the president may be well on his way to losing his battle for the hearts and minds of the American people -- tempered by a shocked disbelief that so much long-term damage could have been perpetrated on the American economy, national security and way of life in just 11 months of ill-judged governance.


I remember when uttering such a statement made you an unpatriotic American. He's your President dammit! even if you disagree with him you can't say anything against him? Remember that? I think it was all the way back in 2007, Blankley's (perfect name BTW) real problem is there is a Black man is the most powerful man in the world setting policy on his racist White ass. That's why he feels teabagger tendencies more and more. Of course I have long suspected he was teabaging Newt.

Very Sad Newshounds News

http://www.newshounds.us/2009/12/22/please_hold_our_deborah_in_your_thoughts_and_prayers.php

As you know we have subhumans who leave comments on this blog so comments will be restricted on this thread. Ralphy fan and Jonathan can edit to leave comments if they choose.


Ellen wrote: I'd like to pause the blog for a while in honor of Deborah Yesner, a founding News Hound and my dear friend. As many of you know, Deb suffered a brain aneurysm about 14 months ago and has been quite ill ever since. I received some sad news from her family today that rather than perform yet another treatment (this time a spinal tap) that would save her life but not offer any real improvement, they have decided to let her pass peacefully. The tragic part is that her health insurance would never pay for the kind of long term care she needed. The result was that she'd go to the hospital with an infection or complication, get released once acute care was no longer needed, then go back to a nursing facility that could not adequately handle her case. Then she'd develop some other problem that started the cycle all over again. For much of the time, her husband took on the exhausting chore of caring of her at home because he felt she got better care. Her family feels that had she been able to go to a better facility, she would have had a fighting chance.

Deb is expected to pass within 24 hours. Please hold her and her family in your thoughts and prayers. This blog meant the world to her and I believe your good wishes will touch her in some way. The family has asked that instead of cards and flowers, that some kind of donation be made to a political cause, possibly about blogging. I'm researching possibilities now and will get back with more details. If anyone has any suggestions, please leave a comment.

40th Anniversary Of The Ultimate Bond Fan Boys Bond Film

On Her Majesty's Secret Service debuted on December 18th 1969 in both Great Britain and The States. In 40 years the film has gone from Mild success to being completely forgotten to becoming one of if not the most popular films of the entire series with it's most hard core fan base. In this case the fan boys of which sadly I am one get it right.

Just to make it official

Another Version Of The Christmas Carol


Went and saw it today. The Good news is that it's a good Well made, very well made movie and technically there are few complaints but somehow the story gets lost and sometimes buried deep in an attempt to wow us with what they can do with animation these days. When the selling point is look it's slick and it's in 3D you know the movie may suffer just a little. Now to be sure this was IMHO a good movie. I want to be clear about that but for all it had in it's technical brilliance it somehow lacked a soul. At times especially in that next to last act with the Ghost of Christmas future I found myself wanting less chase scenes and 3D wizardry and more of a story.

You know the story of course, (this is the what 10th million version?) so whether or not you'll like this depends on whether or not you like the story. I happen to love it. In My Opinion this is on par with the 1984 George C. Scott Television movie version and not as good as the 1951 Alistar Sim version which is the best version IMHO.

And about the Kids. I read some where there is some controversy about whether or not it really appropriate for kids. I think once upon a time this would have scared the hell out of most kids but today I am not so sure. I would not recommend taking kids younger than say 6 but that's me. The scenes that may scare little ones are the opening scenes with Marley in a casket, everything with Marley in fact, and the end of the scene with the ghost of Christmas Present. The theater I was at had quite a few kids and none of them seemed to get too scared. The worst I heard was a child say mommy that's scary but they didn't seemed too spooked that's for sure.

Anyway I like it. I liked it a lot but I could have used a little less bloat and I fear for the day when we may go to the theater and watch a Video game. I better stay completely away from Avatar huh?

A Christmas Carol ****/*****

An Answer For Billy

I really didn't want to make another football thread here but I don't want to junk up Newshounds anymore.

Billy Nip has a huge man crush ( hell it's a crush period) on Brett Favre And in a failed attempt to cover for the oncoming failure of his special little guy...and Brett Favre he is now trying to claim using sarcasm that the season has been a success because Minnesota has done exactly what they did last year...

I'm sorry Count,

Let me try to make this a little clearer.


I admit I was wrong. The Vikings obviously have no chance of making it into the Play-Offs.
And I concede that the main reason is because Bret Favre is their Quarterback.

I appologize for all the remarks I made when you said Favre was washed up and could not perform.

You win!

But I am curious as to why you asked someone named John to help you out. I went back over all the posts on this thread and couldn't find a "John".

But that doesn't matter. The important thing is that the vikings didn't make the Play-Offs so you were right and I was wrong.




I see you are making your usual drunk attempt to make a point using sarcasm and pointing out the Vikings have done exactly what they did last year with Tavarius Jackson with a much tougher schedule BTW and trying to tell me that was the point of their 25 million dollar investment.

Here is the truth Billy. Unless your boyfriend finds a way to actually produce something like a SuperBowl appearance Then that investment will go down as a colossal failure. When the Vikings signed your Man love people said all they needed was a quarterback and they were Superbowl contenders. Well guess what Billy? here we are getting down to crunch time and I'll be damned if it isn't looking like all the Vikings need to be a Superbowl contender is a Quarterback.

Now he can still make me liar and fulfill all you secret desires and take this team to a Superbowl but he's got to play a lot better than he did tonight or 2 weeks ago.

Ladies and gentlemen, the AFC West Champions


For the fourth year in a row.

SAN DIEGO — Thanks to the help of others, a playoff berth came easy to the Chargers on Sunday. Effortlessly, even. Their fifth AFC West Division title in six years wasn't so simple, no thanks to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Pushed to the limit by the Bengals, the Chargers needed a picture-perfect 52-yard field goal by Nate Kaeding with just three seconds remaining for their ninth straight victory, a 27-24 triumph that ultimately delivered another division crown to the Chargers (11-3). Only moments later, the Oakland Raiders sealed an upset victory over the Denver Broncos, meaning the Chargers were three games up on the Broncos with two games to go in the regular season.

If you're keeping score, it's San Diego's fourth consecutive title since Philip Rivers assumed the QB position after releasing Drew Brees to the New Orleans Saints in 2006, the third under Norv Turner, and their fifth title in six years (2004, 2006-2009).

Dallas beats New Orleans

Wait, what!? Didn't someone tell Jerry Jones that it's the month of December?

In all seriousness, tip your hat to this Cowboys team. They desperately needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and beat a tough New Orleans team on their turf.

Oh, shut it Perry!

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas: Al Gore has "gone to hell."

"Did you get religion? Did he get religion?" a man in the crowd asked. "What has happened since then?" The Republican governor used to be a Democrat; he worked for Gore's presidential campaign in 1988.

"I certainly got religion," Perry said. "I think he's gone to hell."

I say: up yours, dickhead.

First, and foremost, I know this is just a stunt to win brownie points with his base, but I detest the immature, bully-boy tactics right-wing a-holes like Rick Perry use. I wish politicians wouldn't talk down to us like we're fucking children, but this is America, we're not that bright to connect the dots, so shit has to be broken down for us to understand.

Life Lessons





Back maybe a year or two ago...or possibly three or more at this point I was having an argument with the wife when I yelled let me out of the God damn car now.

Now seeing as how we were in an area of town that I was not familiar with at all and it was too far to walk back home I figured I would get out she would tell me to get back in the car and all would be good. I got out of the car and she called my bluff and drove off. Lesson don't argue with a pissed off woman in a vehicle.

Tiger Woods has learned this lesson and look where it got him. Last night Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henery apparently jumped into the bed of his fiance's truck as she was driving off during a domestic dispute. The first caller to the police said there was a man beating on the back of the window of the truck a woman was driving the second caller said he was lying unconscious in the street. Sadly he died today from his injuries. Now Henery has had issues other than the one which brought about his untimely and unfortunate death. But there is a lesson to be learned from the man. If the wife, Girlfriend, Fiance etc is pissed off don't jump in her truck bed or any other bed she might own for that matter. Let her go away and cool off.

If she's driving your truck report her ass to the police. Or if your making Chris Henery money, assuming it's not all gone the way of drugs and booze just buy another damn truck.

I learned my lesson that night in Papillion wondering around until the wife came back and we went out to eat and dropped the argument Chris Henery won't get a chance to be smarter next time.

This Has Much To Do With Tiger Woods As Black Women Hating White Folks

Haven't posted troll droppings in awhile. From the Newshounds thread where Hannity blamed Tiger Woods troubles on Black Women hating white folks...


Meanwhile Newshounds obsesses with defending black racists like James Rucker, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Malik Shabazz, and Louis Farakkhan. ANd what ever problems Tiger Woods has is Tiger Woods's own fault. Can't blame Fox this time. But blaming others for problems they didn't cause (Duke lacrosse rape hoax, anyone) is the way of the Democratic Party.

OOH! Jeremiah Nerve Touched! Response Rendered! Film at 11.

'Allo, Mes Amis! Apparent "Clueless Liberal" here, addressing Jeremiah's rebuttal. By the way, Jer, thanks for confirming that you read Count Istvan's blog and that it touches a nerve. All to the good, IMO.

Now, to the chase!

immigrants from England to America in the 1500s-1600s

Did I restrict the time period? Oh, no. You presumed that I placed it in Puritan terms, Jer, when in fact my comment on "successive waves" of immigrants suggested a greater progression across time. Consider the bias and prejudice that the Irish immigrant population initially encountered during the heyday of Ellis Island, for instance. If you think that your Puritanical thinking governed in that day, then you are delusional.

Thus, without God, there is no reason, purpose or meaning in governing bodies, or life in general for that matter. It becomes chaos, which I will explain later on in more detail.

Oh, please do.

On to the larger question of the humanities. Jer states:

What gives art, music, drama, and literature their meaning? What, ultimately, is the driving force behind the things he's listed? When we look at today's "artistry, musicals, dramas, and literature" we can see that, in all of it, to some degree or another, it has been touched by atheism.

I could tell right from the start, that what was being depicted by the minds of these paintings was a sense of meaninglessness. Which is what atheism really does, it creates in the minds and hearts of individuals who've indulged in every pleasure and then come away totally empty of any true meaning, in essence, devoid of a conscience, and therefore, they could not comprehend the purpose of their existence.


OK...so, Jer, any artwork that doesn't cry out to you glorifying Jesus is devoid of merit? Why am I not remotely surprised at this?

Yes, indeed they (Herbert Marcuse, Margaret Sanger, and Madalyn Murray O'Hair) spoke their minds...but now they tell a different story, and if only RalphyFan could listen to their story...he might have a different outlook on things. All three of them died lonely souls, and all because they chose to use their limited authority to satisfy themselves and their worldly pleasures, and it robbed them of the only gift they would ever have, eternal life. Pity!

How do you know in what state of mind they died, Jer?

Seriously. I'd be interested to know.

Take the scenario then, that RalphyFan puts forward for us...he says, "tolerating multicultural points of view works well in Canada," instead of using logic and facts, we see RalphyFan resorting to mere reaction, because he has an agenda, or desired outcome in mind, and what might this outcome be? If you look at it on eye level with the atheist himself, you can see very clearly that the answer is for that subversion to radical egalitarian philosophy that liberals use in the forefront to their ultimate goal of a communist society...we see this taking place in a variety of places that encompasses the globe, most notably here in the U.S., in Canada, and in Europe...and Europe has gone so far now that they're on their way out. But more to the point, where does each culture fall into the line of multiculturalist society? We have to remember that the pecking order is different under the governance of multiculturalist society...man ultimately becomes the centerpiece for all philosophying, governing and most all decision making in general, and dictates that all systems of thought or governing are "equal," but when we look deeper, just underneath the surface we see that this isn't true, those of us who are the most tolerant so to speak, are the ones who then become targets by the government and other agencies of earthly authority, object of ridicule, hate and a conceited effort to place man on a pedestal "higher than God."

Wow. That's even a bigger run-on sentence than in your prior post, Jer. Maybe a refresher course in English is needed?

Notice then the particular faith that RalphyFan wishes to level the bulk of his critique against...yep, you guessed it, none other than an atheist would, at Jesus and His followers. Why? It is for the fact that they recognizes the truth of Jesus' message, and they can't stand that with all passion. Suffice it to say, RalphFan goes off onto a hysterical rant about how he thinks I view other religions. It's evident that he has found pleasure in the material world of which he builds his worldview, yet he is empty inwardly. Devoid of a conscience. I don't know, maybe it's a waste of time to debate such farcical ramblings, but clearly, RalphyFan is a good example of dire situation that our world and especially our own world is in.

Jer, you are a fool and a tool. You have not the remotest notion of my spiritual point of view, nor my conscience. You filter everything through your own narrow lens of your personal point of view. I see you for what you are - a religious bigot who chooses to marginalize anyone who disagrees with his personal, restrictive, retrograde viewpoint.

Thank goodness most sane denizens of the Internet(s) don't subscribe to your view.

Reflections on Tolerance - a Jeremiah-Inspired Expose

So, in his latest screed, our pal Jeremiah waxes philosophical about "The Culture." Which, presumably, means what "The Culture" has devolved to since its pristine, halcyon days of pious, uber-Christian purity that he so idolizes.

Deconstruction thereof, incoming.

He begins by stating that: Our society (America's) has went from a fairly stable culture, to one that is more of a mixed-bag...it got started through the establishment of tolerance for differing cultures and lifestyles.

Excuse me...did not successive waves of immigrants land upon these shores with "differing cultures and lifestyles," specifically to escape the kind of repression in their land(s) of origin which Jeremiah now seems to espouse as the dictatorial, ideal societal structure? Survival of the first as opposed to survival of the fittest, eh? Let's stir that ol' Melting Pot, Jer. So long as it only has "American" cheese in it, apparently.

He goes on to enumerate all the things he feels make up "culture." I'll spare you the gory details but just state, for the record, that there is very little therein that most of us would look upon as "cultural." He waxes lyrical on transportation, machines, tools, communications - all very utilitarian elements. Nothing at all about the things that supposedly make us "human." You know. Art. Music. Drama. Literature. For Jeremiah, "culture" is limited to expedience.

And then it comes down to that scary communication tool, the Internet: Too, the Internet helps us to communicate and socialize with different people that we most likely would never have the opportunity to in-person. Like the hammer, however, all things can be used for either constructive or destructive, positive or negative, good or bad, basically right or wrong purposes.

When we keep things in purity, and in their original state, they usually work quite well, but when mixing cultures, then that is just asking for a deadly recipe for disaster.

Oh, heavens forfend! How shall we preserve our pure selves from this scourge of Exposure To Other People's Ideas?

So Jer steps back - with some grammatical stumbles - to the beginning: American began as a Christian nation, all the Founders' and always will be, despite the liberal critics who redefine history to mean otherwise. The men who drafted and ratified our timeless Constitution, were the most honorable of Christians. [sic.]

Except, er, no. I could expound on how many of the Founders were Deists rather than Christians in the Jeremian sense, and how insistent they were that no religious test be imposed for citizenship or public office...but he would hold his breath until he turned blue while I did so, and that would be counterproductive for us both.

Jer then zeroes in on his targets: Herbert Marcuse, Margaret Sanger, and Madalyn Murray O'Hair. Marcuse, the enemy of capitalism (which of course Christ would have supported wholesale: might even have endorsed Madoff's scheme...); Sanger, persona non grata for advocating OBSCENITY! Oh, the horror; and of course O'Hair, giving prayers and Bible readings the boot from public schools which are not, after all, Sunday Schools. DAMN those uppity women speaking their minds!

From those times forward, we have seen each succeeding generation being brainwashed with ever-more grotesque and Satanic ideology. Oh, yeah, Jer. Whatever you don't advocate MUST be Satanic by default.

What we can gather from this, then, is that the goal or direction of multiculturalism is the effect that is to be had in a multiculturalist mindset of tolerance for the customs of differing backgrounds or cultures, for sexual orientation and then enforcing a code of political correctness that entails a "right to not be offended," in other words, everything is supposedly to be tolerated without reference to norms or precedent, such as the foundation of prayer and Bible reading that was established in our nation's schools with its hope and wisdom was forced out because one woman was offended, and to other things....like a cross by the side of the highway, if someone is offended by it, most usually a representative for the ACLU (Anti-Christian Lawyers Union) they seek a court order to have it removed, or if a college football team has prayer before their game-time asking God to keep them safe and keep them in good spirits, if an ACLU member sees them, they usually seek a court order to have the prayers stopped.

OK, Jer. Apart from that being the longest run-on sentence ever memorialized on this Series Of Tubes...so many illogical leaps you hurdle, here, I can barely keep up. Tolerating multicultural points of view (which I would just observe, seems to work quite well up here in Godless Canada) apparently equates to Tolerating The Gay, to assuming that one faith has an historic right to promote itself without check, while all others are to just put up and shut up...

Are we seeing a pattern of self-imposed victimization here?

From there, Jer goes on to quote chapter and verse for why he feels the need to incessantly prosyletize, and on the evils of idolatry. I'll skip the rant for the good bits: Our Educational Institutions have played the largest role in destroying this nation politically and philosophically, and who are the most vociferous proponents of multiculturalism as you can imagine, because it leads to the mixing up of cultures which leads to a polytheistic nation, which means "a belief in many gods," forcing the idea that all cultures are "equal" to each other, when in Wester Culture we know that not all cultures are ethically equal.

Dear me, that we should be a "polytheistic nation." Oh, wait! We already are! Hate to break it to you, Jer, but I went though K-12 with Jewish kids. Yeah. They took off Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah. I bet you had a similar experience. Were you as outraged then as you are, now, online? Did their devotion to Yahweh over your Jesus piss you off so much at the time? Noooo, I wonder if your ire isn't reserved for all that you perceive as totally "other" than your own beliefs. Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Wicca, etc. If it doesn't touch upon Israel, it doesn't belong in "Wester" [sic.] culture.

At the end of the day, Jer, you are one arrogant son of a bitch. Because you have the gall to try to dictate to others how they should live their lives according to your preferred beliefs. And, furthermore, to shunt the blame onto institutions that strive to be faith-blind, and deliver all kids a decent education rather than the Bible-thumping indoctrination you apparently would prefer.

I am newly glad that you have no children.

Has There Ever Been A More Scathing Book On Conservatism?



The only book I can think of that is as harsh on Conservatism or harsher is the Bible which is why some Conservatives feel the need to re-write it.

Does the Count know who this dude is?

Escape Goat from the News Hounds O/T Forum says that you do.

Edit From The Count : Yup I know who he is and Goat is right. Here is what I wrote in August 2006 on Count Istvan's Castle

This is Pete Ricketts Republican candidate for the Nebraska Senatorial race and he is the first to tell you he is full of Nebraska values, morality and shit like that there




And he is also an OBVIOUS HOMOSEXUAL
And it's not like it isn't obvious Pete. I mean you are Jeff Gannon with a bank account and a small amount of pride still left intact. Think about Jeff, I mean Pete do you really want to stay in the senate race and embarrass your family? If you got elected, and the shit hits the fan, and trust me Pete it will, your entire family and all your business community friends will be hurt by the embarrassment, do you really want this? I didn't think so!

Here is the Count's advice free of charge to you. if you don't want to admit you are Nebraska's Jeff Gannon drop out of the race because your "wife and family wanted you to" then we don't have to vote for the worthless Ben Nelson out of fear that a total nut case like you could win. I tell you it's a win win situation for everybody. Or you can admit the obvious and that are homosexual and continue to run. You won't win but I would at least have more respect for you. (ok not much more, but more) Finally you can keep the charade of being Pete Ricketts family man who invented conservative morals and values and take a chance on winning only to embarrass all of your loved ones. Tell me Pete Is it worth it just to be the Senator of Nebraska and cut your taxes a little more?


Jeff Gannon Republican homosexual man whore.




Pete Ricketts Republican homosexual man whore.

*before somebody gets on here and waste my time with you are "homophobic" garbage being an Obvious homosexual is not the Pete Ricketts crime. The fact that he is damn self-hating and hypocritical about it is.

Three years later I stick by that.

35% of Republicans think Pres. Obama should be imeached

Seriously.

Finally 20% of voters, including 35% of Republicans, support impeaching Obama for his actions so far. I'm not clear exactly what 'high crimes and misdemeanors' they are using to justify that position but there may be a certain segment of voters on both the right and the left these days that simply think the President doing things they don't agree with is grounds for removal from office. I don't think Obama has a lot to worry about on that front.

Also troubling in this poll: 44% of Americans wish Dubaya Jr. were back in charge. Yeah, because things were going so well before Obama entered the White House.

Perhaps the greatest measure of Obama's declining support is that just 50% of voters now say they prefer having him as President to George W. Bush, with 44% saying they'd rather have his predecessor. Given the horrendous approval ratings Bush showed during his final term that's somewhat of a surprise and an indication that voters are increasingly placing the blame on Obama for the country's difficulties instead of giving him space because of the tough situation he inherited. The closeness in the Obama/Bush numbers also has implications for the 2010 elections. Using the Bush card may not be particularly effective for Democrats anymore, which is good news generally for Republicans and especially ones like Rob Portman who are running for office and have close ties to the former President.

Of course, the mental asylum over at Blogs For Victory are salivating over these poll numbers, and a few of the resident mental patients are going over the top with their comments, just as I knew they would.

I don’t want Bush back anymore than I want Obama the Corrupt Dem in office. What I find absolutely fascinating is the complete change in our democratic republic to a Marxist ideology and no one doing a thing about it.
The only people I see standing up to Obama are Palin and Cheney. Glen Beck had the guts to call Obama a Marxist. Obama and his corrupt DEM admin should be tried and prosecuted for unAmerican activities. The next TEA Party on DC should be a million all packing guns and surrounding the WH and Congressional Building.
Am I calling for an armed revolution? You betcha!

I bet if I told uffy to tell me what Marxism really is about, he wouldn't know jack. If he did, he would know that Marxism gets a bad rap thank to dictators like Lenin and Fidel, who never followed Marx's ideals of a socialist utopia to the letter.
Or that Marx's greatest flaw in his economic theory is that the dictator proletariat would somehow give up their power willingly after social order is restored and communism begins to seep into the society.
But first, that would require two things: reading and critical thinking skills.

Second, uffy is calling for the overthrow of the federal government, which i'm pretty sure constitutes as treason.

Palin is now a "Birther:" Or Hypocrite...Opportunist, Part III

I've resisted temptation to use this term to describe former Governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, even when she used her own Down Syndrome son to politicize Obama's health care plan, but after today's revelation that she has now joined the 'birther' club, I feel that this title is actually appropriate.



Sarah Palin is a cold, calculating, opportunistic bitch. There's no way in hell she believes the "birther" movement nonsense, but if it's one more tool she can use to discredit her opponent and fire up her ignorant base of uneducated Southern rednecks, then the ends justify the means in her world.

Sarah Palin is the embodiment that I have become to truly loathe about the GOP: she, like the party, are true cynics; Palin knows better than to spout off the death pannels BS or to support the conspiracy theory that President Obama isn't a natural-born citizen. But she, like the GOP, knows that their base doesn't know any better, or are just plain stupid, so they create this false boogeyman to scare and create resentment, or stir up deep-seed misgiving against other minorities to get their base to come out in waves. It's political opportunism in its ugliest form, and it shows the darker angels in the human condition where a person can show very little respect or display an ounce of humility for their opponent; they only see them as a threat that must be swiftly and quickly neutralized.

Mark Mangino Officially Out At Kansas


One of the coaches you would have thought at the beginning of the year was as safe as a coach could be has reached a financial settlement to resign tonight. Kansas started 5-0 and was ranked 15th in the country then came a 7 game losing streak and stories of abusive behavior by Mangino towards his players and other people around Campus. Several ex players and campus employees came forward to tell their tales of verbal and physical abuse.

There is another factor at play. Kansas was trying to raise $34 million dollars for luxury boxes and many in the Kansas athletic department felt that the obese Mangino was not the best representative of the university. 2 years ago Mangino took the Jayhawks to an Orange Bowl Victory which capped a 12-1 season the best in KU history. Many felt at the time Mangino would have gotten a better job offer if not for the fact that he weighed between 450 and 500 pounds. This is an issue that goes beyond football like it or not you have a much harder time finding and keeping employment if you are obese.

Mangino needs to take at least a year off lose some weight maybe take some classes on people skills. No doubt in my mind that he could find another job quite easily if he did those things.
