We just suffered the biggest Islamic jihad terrorist attack on our homeland since 9/29. Meanwhile, we have B. Hussein Obama in the White House telling us not to rush to judgment.

It is sort of like we have a president today who is dithering on whether or not to continue a silly fantasy-based nation building mission in Afghanistan to try to win the hearts and minds of Muslims who are obligated per their religion to hate our guts no matter what, while Iran, on the other hand, with impunity and while thumbing its nose at the @#$%& non-Islamic world is on the verge of acquiring the Islamic bomb, which will inevitably lead to the proliferation of nuclear weapons across the entire Dar al Islam.

Yep it’s obvious B. Hussein Obama and his ilk have their priorities straight. Not that the Republicans and unfortunately many conservatives today aren’t also as blind as a bat as well when it comes to Islam and Muslims! Whatever happened to quickly and forcefully obliterating our enemies ASAP, creating deterrence, and then going home? Apparently, political correct multiculturalism has afflicted our society every bit as bad as the Bubonic Plague afflicted the world during the Dark Ages.

Not only that but we are having mosques now all across the country asking for extra police protection because of a feared backlash by so-called Islamaphobes or people who otherwise legitimately criticize Islam, even though so for, knock on wood, there has been no backlash.

In other words, like they deceptively have been doing for many years now, CAIR and the other many Saudi funded Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) groups are using this tragic event to make the Muslims out to be the victims in the minds of the gullible, clueless, and naive politically correct.

Considering the current occupants of the White House and the current majorities in Congress, along with the long established alliance the left has had with Islam, in the end this event will be attributed to a psychopath who just snapped and decided to unleash an attack in which 13 of our finest were shot down in cold blood and 38 were maimed and injured. No heads will ever roll for this monstrosity!

Don’t look now but this country is being auctioned off by our so-called leaders and not necessarily to the highest bidders. Unfortunately, there will be no more America left over for our children and grandchildren. It is a very sorry and sad state of affairs and I don’t like it one bit!

POL: I've never really understood folks who cannot manage to speak on the topic of the post, and rant off about whatever the hell THEY think is important.

I'm writing a post that discusses some of your whines, and I invite you to reply to it when it's done (assuming you can make it about the post, rather than the great chicken dinner you ate or whether Roeder should've pled guilty, that is...)

You've now been warned... Any and all future off-topic rants posted here will be unceremoniously deleted. (Subject to my whims, of course... I'm leaving this one (for now) in case I want to use you as a bad example in that other post... After that, I can't guarantee that this one will stay, even... The same may/may not happen in future...)

Thanks for stopping by, though...

AAAAHHHHGGGG! Repsac has stolen one of my trolls!


As for topic. As much as I would like to tell these jokers to hit the road, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do Reppy. We got a vote for a health insurance bill that I hope leads to single payer one day soon.
The struggle must continue. Take comfort that our enemies are clowns like Professor of Life.

Not intentionally... 8>)

(I figured he was either yours or PatrickM's, based on the "PageIn" link around the time he showed up.)

As I said, I don't mind somebody expressing an alternate viewpoint, but these folks who feel the need to bust in & rant off on somethin' you're not even talking about makes me wonder who raised 'em, and why they didn't do a better job.

As much as I would like to tell these jokers to hit the road, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do...

If these reps are the best the Dems can get in these districts, I'm fine with that. (I mean, they don't stand for the values that I think Democrats should have, but then, I'm an "east coast lib'rul elite," so what do I know?) But nevertheless, I would like to see all of 'em face primary challenges from candidates just a little to the left of 'em (perhaps from folks who're pro-choice), when next they're up, just to be sure that they ARE the best Dems can do in these districts... ...and if I'm able, I'll send each challenger a few bucks because of this vote, too.

I mean, it's one thing to have a big tent, but there comes a point where the tent gets so big that the word "Democrat" ceases to stand for anything.

Lotta Republicans are feeling the same, by the way, which is why they're purging themselves right into a conservative box, and why, even given what I said above, Democrats have to be careful.

Primary voters (who're usually the more "gung-ho" party activists) have to remember that the candidate they pick is going to have to be palatable to the general public--everyone from you & me to POL--in the general election, as well. It's great to make the base happy, but most times a candidate can't win with the base, alone... Like it or don't, a vehement, fire-breathing partisan like their Sarah or our Kucinich or Nader will never win the presidency. (That's why all this talk about Obama being a socialistmuzzieextremistnihilist (or Bush being a nazichristianistextremistfascist, for that matter) is so friggin' stupid. This country swings a little left and a little right, but by definition will never elect anyone out of the mainstream of US politics. A little exaggeration for rhetorical flourish is one thing, but those who really believe that any US president was or is the equivalent of Hitler or Stalin--or did/will lead us down a slippery slope toward the ideology or practices of either of 'em--doesn't deserve to be taken seriously by much of anyone. There will always be radical/reactionary extremists and hyper-partisans, in and out of the two major political parties, but they are tiny minorities of the electorate, and not particularly influential, even within the parties to which they're ideologically closest.

That's what I think, anyway...
(Hmm... Guess ol' POL isn't the only one who can go off on a rant...)

Just between you and me Reppy, and the others reading this now, I really think you should get back in the game on some other blogs in what I describe as the Swash Zone Community.

The coathanger is an apt symbol of the abortion industry. Which is not too happy with Stupak. The coathanger Democrat label needs to be "hung" on the other guys.

I wish he was my Rep. I thank him for making the House bill much less harmful to human beings.

repsac3 said...

While you obviously feel differently, DMarks, the coat hanger actually is the symbol of those who oppose abortion for others. We know this because back alley abortions, while not common, were widespread enough that many who didn't share your personal beliefs managed to find a person willing to untwist a coat hanger, and "help them out"... generally, for a price.

I'm of the opinion that those opposed to abortion shouldn't have them, and should try to persuade others that they are correct. On the other hand, I don't believe the government should legislate moral or heath decisions. (That's what insurance companies are for.)

Stupak won't make it safer for all human beings... it'll just change the human beings who're at risk of being harmed.
