quite entertaining, watching liberals self-induce into these spastic fits of
hysteria at the thought of conservative governance.
of the most morbidly funny things I’ve ever seen was a TV ad put out by the
Democrats, in the run-up to 2000 US Presidential election, featuring a redneck
pickup truck with a chain dragging behind it. The subtle message was that if
George W. Bush was ever elected President, black people would be dragged through
the streets and randomly murdered while their churches burned.
years and a re-election victory later, they’re still hyperventilating over
Bush. This time, it’s about issues ranging from abortion to a war draft. Every
time a Republican gets into office, there’s this widespread panic that he will
effectively revoke every American woman’s God-given right to irresponsibly
sleep her way through the Manhattan phone book without protection, and just deal
with the consequences later. How dare the government interfere with someone’s
choice to NOT avail oneself of the various high-tech methods of birth control
like IUDs, birth control pills, and the Morning After Pill!
Like, what if they just don’t feel like it, man!
for the draft scare, the only one who has ever brought up the issue in recent
times is John Kerry himself. A draft would mean that snobby, rich kids like
Dubya would have to go into war zones instead of hanging out at home in the Air
National Guard. Like John Kerry said himself, “It’s only fair.” It would
also destroy the world’s biggest military superpower by loading it up with a
bunch of slackers who really don’t want to be there,
there’s nothing liberals would love to ruin more than a hegemonic superpower.
2004 Presidential election proved that the media, Hollywood and the Democratic
Party don’t reflect mainstream America, and that the Nielsen TV Ratings are
more reliable than polls. There’s a silent majority of people out there who
appear to be busy watching Fox News on a regular basis and jacking up that
network’s ratings, while letting calls from pollsters go straight through to
their answering machines.
of course, now it isn’t just Bush who’s the moron--it’s the slack-jawed
yokel majority that voted for him. The long-suppressed truth is now out: The
party purporting to be for “the people” doesn’t tend to look very fondly
on its constituency.
reaction to Bush’s re-election been equally hyperbolic abroad. Britain’s
Daily Mirror blasted, “How can 59,054,087 [Americans] be so dumb?” Pretty
tough talk coming from a country full of people who have yet to master the
own email box has been flooded with hate-filled rants from all over the world.
This one, from the United Arab Emirates, is fairly representative:
I was reading all your hate articles
against non-whites....calling yourself a believer. Tell me, how much is the Bush
campaign paying you? I am sure you know it is blood money.”
I’m sure I’ll be getting my name bumped up on
the jihadi ‘to-do’ list for pointing this out--but, “a believer”?
“Blood money”? He forgot to mention Halliburton, but he did deal the race
card. The Reverend “Jessuh-uh-uh” Jackson would be proud.
is it that liberals, John Kerry during his campaign, filmmaker Michael Moore,
the Hollywood tabloid brigade, Osama bin Laden, and this nutbar all sound the
same? A bit of projection, perhaps, when it comes to corruption and scandal?
does the government know about you?
country that seems to really dig corruption is France. There’s no other
explanation for why those folks keep electing the leaders they do. A recent poll
in France had 71% of that country’s voters backing Kerry, with only 17%
supporting Bush. (I guess the other 12% were sweet on Ralph Nader.) Meanwhile,
their leader, Jacques Chirac, basically told a victorious Bush to shove it,
while scurrying over to the deathbed of his terrorist pal, Palestinian leader
Yasser Arafat. Hardly a surprising reaction considering the fact that Bush
mucked up Chirac’s backroom deals with Saddam under the United Nation’s
Saddam was chowing down on missiles, grenade launchers and WMD components, then
it wasn’t quite ‘food’ that he was getting in exchange for that oil.
Chirac was caught with his hand in the cookie jar when US and coalition forces
invaded Iraq and noticed all the newly-minted French missiles whizzing by them.
According to a CIA report, various French government officials were on
Saddam’s payroll, and received $1.78 billion to actively work against US
Stockholm International Peace Research Institute found that France provided 13%
of imported weapons to Iraq, with the other two ‘peace-loving members of the
United Nations Security Council’ -- Russia and China -- handing Saddam 57% and
12% of his weapons, respectively, between 1973 and 2002. What about those
warmongering, interventionist, hypocritical American Presidents, which include
spawn-of-Satan ‘Dubya’, his daddy, and that ‘moron’ Ronnie Reagan, who
loaded up Saddam with all those weapons to fight Iran? Their total contributions
amounted to a whopping 1% of Saddam’s cache.
lot of American liberals have thrown a fit since the election, and have been
talking openly about picking up their marbles and heading to Canada--a country
that has been coasting on its post-WWII clout and moral authority, and now has
zip-all left. The last thing Canada needs now is a liberal invasion from the
that Canada has any real power to stop you. It was former socialist Prime
Minister Pierre Trudeau who decimated Canada’s military and ultimately put it
on a path to defenselessness. Canada is now so toothless that even the Prime
Minister, when pleading recently for UN member countries to pitch-in with
foreign aid, addressed only a handful of delegates, many of whom probably sat
there thinking, “Who the heck is this
the Updated Popup Blocker! free
guy?” and “Put up or shut up, you
cheapskate.” It all comes down to one’s priorities: Canada may allow you to
marry your gay lover, but when either a major health or defense crisis comes
knocking, you won’t be able to get back to Dubya’s ‘Jesusland’ fast
