One damn good speech

As the RNC approached I had some fear that it would be one long-winded, depressing showcase of lame republicans. I mean the DNC nearly forced me to take my own life. Well I have been surprised and enthused so far. I've stopped vomiting, the ulcer is on the mend, and I think my hair is starting to grow back. Here are some choice quotes from Arnold tonight:

My fellow immigrants, my fellow Americans, how do you know if you are a Republican? I'll tell you how.
If you believe that government should be accountable to the people, not the people to the government...then you are a Republican! If you believe a person should be treated as an individual, not as a member of an interest group... then you are a Republican! If you believe your family knows how to spend your money better than the government does... then you are a Republican! If you believe our educational system should be held accountable for the progress of our children ... then you are a Republican! If you believe this country, not the United Nations, is the best hope of democracy in the world ... then you are a Republican! And, ladies and gentlemen ...if you believe we must be fierce and relentless and terminate terrorism ... then you are a Republican!


That's what I admire most about the President. He's a man of perseverance.
He's a man of inner strength. He is a leader who doesn't flinch, doesn't waiver, does not back down. My fellow Americans, make no mistake about it terrorism is more insidious than communism, because it yearns to destroy not just the individual, but the entire international order. The President didn't go into Iraq because the polls told him it was popular. As a matter of fact, the polls said just the opposite. But leadership isn't about polls. It's about making decisions you think are right and then standing behind those decisions. That's why America is safer with George W. Bush as President.


He knows you don't reason with terrorists. You defeat them. He knows you can't reason with people blinded by hate. They hate the power of the individual. They hate the progress of women. They hate the religious freedom of others. They hate the liberating breeze of democracy. But ladies and gentlemen, their hate is no match for America's decency.


Yeah, good stuff. I even saw a black man in the crowd, and those kindly republicans weren't even hanging him.

Quote of everlasting veracity

"Even though I am a well-recognized liberal on many issues confronting our society today, I find it ironic that many human rights advocates and outspoken members of my own entertainment community are often on the front lines to protest repression, for which I applaud them, but they are usually the first ones to oppose any use of force to take care of these horrors that they catalogue repeatedly." Ron Silver at the RNC monday night.

The sweet, sweet smell of hippies

So this week begins the RNC in New York. And surprise, protesters are gonna be there as well. I know, a little shocking. Still, the actual concept of protesting an entire organization somehow doesn't seem right to me. I don't know if I would or could protest the very existence of the democrats. I retch at the thought of many of them, but I don't hate every single one of them. Which is what many rabid lefty groups seem to do. They hate the very existence of anyone who doe not adhere to what they consider right. There is something kinda creepy about that. And not creepy like being alone in the dark. But creepy like old people having sex.

It seems the media and liberals are content to describe conservatives as close-minded, polarizing, and divisive. But it always seems to be the left who cry for the oppositions head on a platter.


I don't even know what the hell this is all about. But she certainly is a hot little momma. If I were ten year younger, had use of my genitals, and retained no concept of reality, I'd be mackin' my mojo on her.


Oh ho ho! Well put little protester, well put. Goddamn Bush for all his "terrorism"! Show your defiance! Don't shave your armpits! Listen to indie rock! Go vegan! Like things that no one else likes!


"Whats that Danny? You're a goddamn sonuvabitch? Well hell, that makes two of us, Danny. That makes two of us" Thats what he really said. Seriously.


Apparently these guys and gals are protesting something about AIDS. Not sure what their beef is, but I think it has something to do with not having clothes.

Well thats enough for now. My head is threatening to explode. And considering the convention hasn't even started yet, I'd say I'll be posting more pictures and commentary during the week.

What about my rights ass

I'm fine with protests. Seriously, you have a right to protest something that you feel strongly about. What I abhor is the asinine way in which these extreme left organizations carry out their protests.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Thousands of cyclists snarled traffic in New York on Friday night and police said they arrested more than 250 people and confiscated their bicycles in the first significant protest against President Bush before the Republican convention.

Friday night's protest lasted several hours at a time when central Manhattan was crowded with theatergoers and people at restaurants and bars. Traffic was brought to a virtual standstill in the chaos.


If you want to protest something, fine, but this is not the way to do it. How many peoples businesses did this affect? Cab drivers, messengers, restaurants, and whatever else lost money because of this. If I was stuck in traffic for seven hours because some bastards felt like they were saving the world they had better be wearing some helmets because some bikes would be going down.

They have a right to protest, but they don't have that right at my expense.

it has to be their fault

Here is a heart warming little story from the Olympics according to Newsmax.com.

Olympic Stadium was packed, largely because Greeks thought they would be watching Kenteris, who withdrew from the Athens Games after missing a drug test.

The start of the 200 was delayed for four minutes because hostile spectators were whistling in derision and chanting "Kenteris" and "Hellas, Hellas," the Greek word for Greece. They booed loudest when the Americans were introduced.


Now that just makes me want to give somone a hug. It really does. I wonder what the Greek word for "moronic bastards" is?

half the fun

i watched five minutes of the simple life show today. i've come away from that experience with several, i believe poignant, observations. first, those girls are very pretty. and by pretty i of course mean hideously ugly and retch inducing. its not so much their physical appearance. i felt like i was watching a prized potted plant fawn in front of a camera. and not even a real potted plant. but one of those plastic ones. and not even the plastic ones that look real, but the plastic ones that look like a stick with paper triangles for leaves.

i'm not sure why someone would watch that show. its got to be more than because she's on tape fucking. but i'm not sure.

i rewatched the fellowship of the ring the other day and i cried. i mean literally, tears. all those sad little hobbits hugging each other. i don't think i'm supposed to do that.

No it DOES make sense.

"The truth, which is what elections are all about, is that the tax burden of the middle class has gone up while the tax burden of the middle class has gone down," Kerry said.


Well I can't help myself. Kerry inability to commit to one train of thought never ceased to amaze me. But what really takes the cake, eats it, and then flushes it down the journalistic toilet is the fact that no one seems to take him to task for these often opposing views that he takes in the same converstion. I do however, agree that these elections are about the truth. I just hope enough people realize that.

My Pet Goat


Christopher Hitchens makes some good points in his latest column. What the hells going on there, eh? Here is a choice bit:

The experience of having fought in such a war is absolutely useless to any American today and has no bearing on any thinkable fight in which the United States could now become engaged. Thus, only the "character" issues involved are of any weight, and these are extremely difficult and subjective matters. If Kerry doesn't like people disputing his own version of his own gallantry, then it was highly incautious of him to have made it the centerpiece of his appeal.


This seems to be a central issue that galls me to no end. The left seems incapable of taking what it dishes out. And the media either can't or won't call them out on this. And believe me, this has caused deep and painful anguish when I'm trying to screw over poor minorities as I embezzle money from my corporate job and beat my wife as I watch HeeHaw while preaching at a redneck church.

post one
