Let me be Clear

conservopunk banner smaller2

Let me be clear...

People ask me who I mean when I and other pragmatic Americans refer to the “Radical Left” or “Wacky Libs” and the “Marxists.” Today I will attempt to show just who I am referring to in the media, culture, politics and the like. These examples should help. If you still plan on voting DEM in the fall, just please don't tell me about it. Thanks.


This started it all. Placed by and run at a discount by the NY Times. This full page ad is nothing more than a smear and truly deplorable. I always tell people I want to be able to answer my daughter in 10 years when she asks me what I did when I saw this ad.

“Community Activists” Boo the National Anthem and give the Hitler Salute to mock GW Bush (apparently).

Just one of these people cancels my vote.

I would say the nationally syndicated cartoonist who created this “piece” which ran in the Kansas City Star (whose editorial board and ombudsman could also fall into this category) would be just a little bit “radical” and “leftist.”

Cartoon disgraceful

IMPORTANT NOTE: For those of you who claim “censorship” and applaud the mainstream media’s decision to run the Danish cartoons making fun of the Prophet Mohammed, I ask you to consider our “sacred cows” before claiming the moral high ground. This is more than a free speech issue. While we think poking fun at religion is brave, others (like moderate Muslims) are appalled by it. We can lampoon Christianity and Conservatives all day long, but see what happens if we were to run a cartoon blasting MLK or glorifying Hitler. Other news organizations would not re-run such cartoons to "show their support."

Bob Englehart cartoon

Here is another widely published cartoon depicting all Republicans as White and Racist. The punch line is supposed to lambaste Bill and Hillary Clinton, but while making its point the writer lumps everyone on the Right together in one big racist tent. This is truly despicable. I will not list all the prominent Black Republicans in Congress and on the Court again (as I have done many times in the past to show the bias of the Democrat Party and the media) but this is also a disgrace and should be marginalized.

U.S. Soldiers upon returning to the U.S. after serving in Iraq, were called “brainwashed murderers” by Obama campaigners outside a grocery store. These would be the college know it all hippies Eric Cartman warns us about.

Here are some members of our esteemed “Radical Left.” I would be willing to bet that the following “community activists” will vote for Democrats. Just a hunch:






"(W)hen Communist U.S.S.R. was a superpower, the world was better off. The right-wing media is trying to marginalize the peace movement." -- Janeane Garofalo (huh)?

"When I see an American flag flying, it's a joke." -- Robert Altman, Film Director


“I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease.... He is an absolutely reprehensible person.” -- USA Today columnist and Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveaux on Justice Clarence Thomas, Nov. 4, 1994, on PBS’s “To the Contrary.”

"Let's get rid of all the economic (expletive) this country represents! Bring it on, I hope the Muslims win!" -- Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders


“As a result of the [9/11] attack and the killing of nearly 3,000 innocent people, we invaded two countries and killed innocent people in their countries.... Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.” -- Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s “The View,” Sept. 12, 2006.

IMPORTANT NOTE #2: If Bush is just as bad as Osama, if "Radical Christianity" is just as threatening as radical Islam" then why don't they spend an equal amount of time and energy trying to get rid of them both? So dark, the con of liberals.

dumb and dumber

"America is the greatest sin against God." -- Father Michael Pfleger (Catholic Priest)

"I hasten to tell you that the precious lives that were lost in the World Trade Center was a cover, a cover for a war that had been planned to bring a pipeline through Afghanistan to bring oil from that region, oil owned by Unical of which Dick Cheney is a stock holder." – Louis Farrakhan


"Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal will be about socializing...uh,
um...Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies." - - Maxine Waters to oil company executives when they met with Congress. 2008

"With Mother's Day just around the're probably thinking about how to show the special woman in your life how much you love and appreciate them. Well, we've got a great idea for you! Why not honor the special woman in you life by taking one simple action to help empower women all around the world! It's easy - click here to join us in urging Congress to increase funding for international family planning programs."

Pro Israel group FLAME features this blatant error in the New York Times:


I am reminded that the Haditha Marines have been exonerated. Have you seen that story anyplace? We all saw the first one:


The Daily Kos is the most visited blog site in the world.

kos convention

It is arguably America's most influential blog as Democratic members of Congress post on the blog, Democratic presidential contenders cater to them (attending the annual conference, helping to fundraise, etc see photo above) and Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas is considered to be a mainstream figure amongst Democrats.

Here are some choice posts from the Kos membership starting with Moulitsas (I corrected the spelling mistakes):

Concerning the murders of four American contractors who were helping to deliver food in Fallujah, Iraq:

“Every death should be on the front page. Let the people see what war is like. This isn't an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush's folly. That said, I feel nothing over the death of mercenaries [sic]. They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.”

"The GOP likes to attack Kos for his comment saying "Screw them", but Kos was right then (in the comments). And he's still right now. A person doesn't go work for a Private Security Team to "serve God and country". They join to make money. Thus, they are mercenaries." -- pacified

"When *ss-kissing chickensh*t David Petraeus lied his *ss off before Congress about the failed "surge", capitol hill police tackled and arrested a Pentecostal minister, damaging his ankle in the process.

...If you think America isn't undergoing the same slide into fascist dictatorship today as Germany did in the 1930s, you're kidding yourself.

…Those two reasons, more than the brutal assaults on people and the First Amendment, are why America is devolving into a bad replay of Nazi Germany. The lack of national outrage, to the point we do something about it; and the support of it by mindless group thinkers in society who are so stupid they think it's a good thing that we're being subjected to tyranny." -- Archangel M

“The parallels are undeniable, and I see only one solution if America, The Grand Experiment, is to survive.

I want to stand by and watch it all blow up.
I want the dollar to plunge to worthless paper.
I want the stock market to implode.
I want the economy to plunge into chaos.
I want the Chinese to call in all the debt they hold.

I want an economic meltdown of such staggering proportion that even that idiot on Bill Moyer's Journal who does not know the difference between a State Constitution and the United States Constitution, is forced to look around in mild surprise and wonder what the hell happened.

Only total economic destruction will get the attention of the fools.

...And I want it now, before this inept, self-serving Congress allows the Fascists one more opportunity to fully convert this from the United States of America, into the 4th Reich." -- Granny Doc

"But do I still support the individual men and women who have given so much to serve their country? No. I think they’re a bunch of idiots. I also think they’re morally retarded. Because they sign a contract that says they will kill whoever you tell me to kill. And that is morally retarded.

Friends, the most important moral decision a man makes in the course of a day is "Who am I going to kill today?" That’s a decision you should agonize over, dream about, rehearse in your mind for hours, and not just leave up to some hare-brained President you didn’t even vote for.

A man’s killing list is a very personal matter. It should be between him and those persistent voices in his head. So to sum up, I don’t like our troops, I don’t like what they’re doing, I don’t like their fat, whining families, and yet, I support them. Thank God I live in a free country. Thank You." -- AWhitneyBrown


MSNBC “News Man” Keith Olbermann has been going WAY over the top in his critiques of the Bush administration for years. After hearing about his ranting and raving about not getting a first class seat at the funeral for Tim Russert, I needed to look up just one of his many, many outlandish positions.


“Al Qaeda really hurt us, but not as much as Rupert Murdoch has hurt us, particularly in the case of Fox News. Fox News is worse than al Qaeda -- worse for our society. It’s as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.”
-- MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann in an interview with Playboy magazine

A known liberal (and total jerk to all those around him and work for him) Olbermann called Bush a liar, fascist and treasonous in response to his support of the telecoms assisting in catching terrorists. Yet in response to Barrack Obama’s support of the same bill, he noted Obama’s “Bravery in standing up to the Left.” The mind numbs.


Adding to the tapestry of the “Radical Left” are many Universities in this country. Chock full of tenured liberal profs who lament the fall of the Soviet Union and the failure of the 2nd American Revolution in the 60’s. Here is the 2007 Human Events top 10 liberal courses list:

10. Nonviolent Responses to Terrorism
Swarthmore College’s “Nonviolent Responses to Terrorism” course “deconstruct[s] terrorism” and “build[s] on promising nonviolent procedures to combat today’s terrorism,” using the struggle blacks pursued in the 1960s as a mode for tackling today’s terrorism.

9. American Dreams/American Realities
Duke University’s “American Dreams/American Realities” course seeks to unearth “such myths as ‘rags to riches,’ ‘beacon to the world,’ and the ‘frontier,’ in defining the American character.”

8. Cyberfeminism
This Cornell University class investigates “the emergence of cyberfeminism in theory and art in the context of feminism/post feminism and the accelerated technological developments of the last 30 years of the 20th Century.”

7. Mail Order Brides: Understanding the Philippines in Southeast Asian Context
Johns Hopkins University
offers this course as a supposedly deep look into Filipino kinship and gender.

6. Whiteness: The Other Side of Racism
This is Mount Holyoke College’s attempt to analyze race. The class seeks to spark thought on: “What is whiteness?” “How is it related to racism?” “What are the legal frameworks of whiteness?” “How is whiteness enacted in everyday practice?” And how does whiteness impact the “lives of whites and people of color?”

5. Blackness
College (making the list twice) offers “Blackness,” which elaborates on a “new blackness,” “critical blackness,” “post-blackness,” and an “unforgivable blackness”—all of which combine to create a “feminist New Black Man.

4. Adultery Novel
Students in this University of Pennsylvania class read 19th- and 20th-Century works about “adultery,” watch “several adultery films,” and apply “various critical approaches in order to place adultery into its aesthetic, social and cultural context, including: sociological descriptions of modernity, Marxist examinations of family as a social and economic institution” and “feminist work on the construction of gender.”

3. Taking Marx Seriously
“Should Marx be given another chance?” That’s what Amherst College students are asked. Students in this class are also asked to question if Marxism still has “credibility,” while also inquiring if societies can gain new insights by “returning to [Marx’s] texts.” This course also states that Lenin, Stalin, and Pol Pot misapplied Maxist concepts.

2. Queer Musicology
This University of California-Los Angeles class explores how “sexual difference and complex gender identities in music and among musicians have incited productive consternation” during the 1990s.

1. The Phallus
This course at Occidental College covers a broad study on the relation “between the phallus and the penis, the meaning of the phallus, phallologocentrism, the lesbian phallus, the Jewish phallus, the Latino phallus, and the relation of the phallus and fetishism.”

Finally just for fun...

I thought I would (again) point to all the Democrats and Liberals who have “Bush Lied” bumper stickers on their cars to the following (small sample) of डेम positions on the Iraq War:

5-4 Bottom of the Ninth

5-4 Bottom of the Ninth

US Supreme Court

Recent U.S. Supreme Court Decisions have gone the way of the 5-4 vote mainly along ideological and political lines. The D.C. gun ban decision comes down tomorrow so as I write this I am uncertain if they will issue another alarmingly activist ruling or do something really crazy and uphold the U.S. Constitution.

I have always been fascinated by those opposed to the term “Judicial Activism.” Liberal Justices, those of the “living and breathing constitution” variety, find rights where none exist (Roe v. Wade, Boumediene v. Bush) and attempt thru judicial decree to alter the landscape of this country, subverting the will of the people. Conservative Justices do not impose their own personal conservative beliefs on the public, but rather seek to interpret the LAW as it pertains to the U.S. Constitution.

The Legislative branch writes the laws. The Judicial branch interprets the laws. The Judiciary cannot add anything to the mix. Let me restate… they SHOULD not add anything, the DO in fact add things all the time.

It’s fairly straightforward – yet we continue to get these 5-4 decisions on the more important issues of the day. There have been some biggies thus far this Supreme Court term:

5-4 limiting Govt interference in political ads (GOOD)

5-4 increasing Govt power in eminent domain (BAD)

5-4 upholding BAN on Partial Birth Abortion (GOOD)

5-4 granting unlawful enemy combatants U.S. Constitutional Rights (BAD)

5-4 against race based enrollment preferences in public schools (GOOD)

5-4 disallowing the death penalty for a child rapist (BAD)

Let’s all hope they get the upcoming 2nd amendment decision in the (GOOD) category and rule the Wash DC gun ban as unconstitutional, which it most certainly IS.


The Justices on the left side of the aisle can certainly find "rights" where none exist so let’s see if they go ahead and find the right to bear arms which actually DOES exist and throw out the DC ban.

Expands Govt’s Eminent Domain Power

There is no such thing as "Big Oil."

These companies are all publicly traded companies owned by millions of individual stockholders and mutual fund owners.

The “record profits” in the $40 billion range is for a $500+ billion company! Oil company margins are some of the lowest in business world. They operate at an 8% margin. Hedge Funds operate at appalling margins of over 80% regularly.

While I feel that some CEO and other executive compensation to be out of the range of good taste, it is not the governments role to approve salaries.

Politicians publicly decry the "speculators" for the inflated price. Well, yes. Just as in every other publicly traded commodity speculators bid pricing based on futures. If there is MORE SUPPLY they will SPECULATE a drop in price. Attention Democrats: you are NOT smarter than a 5th grader!

We need to get more oil onto the world supply stage and do it quickly. The recent decision by the Saudis not to increase supply further illustrates this need. The Democrat Party is stuck in deep on this issue and the Republicans (if smart... I know don't say it) should press them for real, tangible answers instead of "we need to look to the future and alternative energy." Indeed, one cannot argue against the need to expand Nuclear, Hydrogen, Bio Fuels (not corn however) and reduce our dependence on foreign oil imports, however "look to the future" is not leadership. We need to use all of our energy available to be self sufficient. NOW. ANWR alone would immediately replace the oil we get from the Saudis. Period.

Drill here and drill now!


To the folks who (incorrectly) claim the oil wont be online for 10 years I remind them that then President Bill Clinton made those same claims back in... 1998 when he prevented drilling in ANWR.

The funniest claim from Democrats is the red herring of the leased land that the oil companies are not drilling. This is laughable to be sure. Hey liberals... that's NOT WHERE THE OIL IS!

We need alternative energy and must, with private entrepreneurship and federal funding, get this energy source going to get off of foreign oil and help to clean our environment.

But the OIL INDUSTRY is not the place to turn to or blame. They are OIL COMPANIES. They are in the business of finding and refining oil. Hello? Hello?

We have this source already. Nuclear energy in the form of clean fusion (not cold fusion) or fission which leads to waste) is ready to roll with moderate funding. This is clean, unlimited energy and more efficient than anything ever created.

Just my 2 cents - (sorry $4) - worth.


Super Soaked Parents

My "Coolness" credentials:

I wear many hats – one of which is playing live music and writing jingles for businesses on the side. I consider myself to be a slightly “hip” adult. I like all kinds of music from hard rock to country to rap and R&B. I am cool. Okay I get a dose of cold reality when the college girls at parties call me “SIR” but I hold my own as a 30 something American male.

self portrait

When I was a kid I subscribed to the “if you don’t like it just change the channel” theory of absolutely NO standards in the media and NO censorship of obviously offensive lyrics in music. Heck, even if “Lollipop” from the 1950’s is not really about a lollipop (and the 2008 version is absolutely not about a lollipop) it is still fairly innocuous.

When my 5 year old daughter sings “Drop it like its Hot” or “My Humps” I have to laugh at the surrealism of it all. To be clear I don’t think she knows what the lyrics to those songs mean, but it reminds me how far we have fallen in terms of cultural respectability in this country.

Can we all agree that certain subject matter is not acceptable for children (or for that matter anyone with a brain) to listen to and sing along with?

It is now my turn to (albeit a year too late) do my part in publicly “outing” the meaning behind the mega hit “Superman that Hoe” by Soulja Boy. My friends cringe when I turn to this subject, but I feel it is my civic duty to bring it to your attention.


Hey Middle America do you know what “Superman that Hoe” means??

(For those of you still on oldies radio, a “Hoe” is what the urban community (customers) and the upper class community (gangster rappers) call women. Just so we are all on the same page).

To “Superman a Hoe” is to wait until the woman who refused your advances falls asleep. You then masturbate and ejaculate onto her back. Once finished you press a bed sheet onto her now soiled back to, in effect, add a Superman Cape. When she arises the sheet remains stuck to her skin and she will appear to have a cape! (1)

Isn’t this funny? References are below. As I always do as the conservOpunk in this medium, I merely state facts. Any Google search can confirm anything I bring forward. Do with this information what you will. You now know what “Superman that Hoe” means. I wonder what the lyrics “Super soak that Hoe” mean? Perhaps he is talking about water or something? Yes, yes that must be it.

Don’t be mired in the muck of political correctness. Get involved in the well being of your children. And for that matter the adults who buy and dance to this crap. Hell the song itself sucks and the production value is terrible!! (:

Parents, I suggest getting off of your collective butts and listening to what exactly your kids are idolizing.

Wait, I can say your collective Asses can’t I??? I hear that word on the radio all the time… and remember when I saw the band “MorningWood” on Nickelodeon!

Liberals and Democrats: PROVEN WRONG BY HISTORY

USSR / Communism is inevitable? WRONG

This really needs no further discussion. The glorious collectivist experiment known as the Soviet Union completely collapsed and is totally discredited in the historical record. Much like Italian Facism and Nazi Germany, the USSR belief that there is nothing higher than the power of the state led to inhumane imprisonment in the gulags, substandard conditions for its people including horrific food shortages, millions of political executions, and complete godless totalitarianism.

Remember our "un biased" media gave Gorbachev the credit for ending the Cold War, made him Time's "Man of the Decade" and supported his speaking tour where he made $100K a pop telling fawning liberal audiences how the Soviet Union didn't really collapse.


YIN: “If you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here, to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” —Ronald Reagan Speech at the Berlin Wall, June 12, 1987

YANG: "In another show of America's force to the world, when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, Carter responded by boycotting the Olympics. And thus was a fearsome blow struck at little fourteen-year-old American girls who had spent their lives training for the Olympics." -- Ann Coulter

SDI or "Star Wars" won't work? WRONG

Wrong quite often over these past years actually. Most recently on Feb 21, 2008. An American missile, without a warhead or internal guidance system, hit a satellite that was moving at approximately 22,000 miles per hour from a ship that was sitting on swells in the Pacific Ocean.

This was the straw that broke the back of the Soviet Union. Not only could they not afford to create such a program, they couldn't come up with such a thing either and they all knew it. Cold War won. Liberals proven wrong, again. Who cares about the next Michael Jordon? Where is the next Ronald Reagan?


All USA fault - we need to pull out. As soon as we did, the North Vietnamese turned their guns on Cambodia. The Killing Fields

History class on Senator Joe McCarthy? WRONG

While his tactics were over the top and at times brutal, Senator Joe McCarthy has been vindicated by the publication of the Venona Project in 1995. (you may have missed this MSMedia viewers). The term "communism" is today a vile word describing a failed ideology that brought misery and dispar to millions.

The Venona Papers released from Soviet archives vindicate McCarthy and showed an even greater communist threat than even he thought. More than 350 paid soviet agents held positions within the U.S. State Dept.

“we now learn that J. Edgar Hoover, Senator Joseph McCarthy, Roy Cohn, Elizabeth Bentley, Whittaker Chambers & company really got it right: all Communists are/were actual, or wanna be, Russian spies. We also learn that during the Cold War years (and even before) hordes of leftists were abroad in the land, stealing "our" atomic secrets (and God only knows what else) for delivery to Joseph Stalin.” - - William A. Reuben review of The Secret World of American Communism, Rights, 1995

In retrospect had McCarthy simply went after another sector of society in search of Communists (rather than Hollywood, where there WERE lots of them) then we would not have film after film portraying him in an unfair light. To be clear, "McCarthyism" still works as a term today as his tactics were not polite, but those lives he was ruining were indeed communist lives bent on the overthrow of the U.S. To the playwright outed as a Communist I point to the millions thrown into Soviet Gulags due to their personal beliefs. I am sure if they could have chosen the punishment of "not being able to be a playwright anymore" they would have jumped at it! Venona proves McCarthy was right.

Doomsday Environmental Predictions? WRONG

So now Africa gets to use DDT? Well that didn't take too long..! Thanks a lot Rachel Carson! 30 million dead Africans are in your debt. I still want to know who that scientist was who would eat spoonfuls of DDT to prove how harmless it was. Junk science won and lots and lots and lots of human beings died.


Ever notice how Global Warming slowly became “Climate Change?” If it gets hotter, global warming. If it cools, global warming. This is Junk Science 101 and the new religion of the left.

The jaw dropping mistake underlying all of this hysteria is thus: CO2 does not cause warming, WARMING causes a rise in CO2 ! We learn this in eighth grade. It is still true!

Weather Channel founder John Coleman has been an outspoken advocate for climate realism. This weekend, Coleman posted at his KUSI-San Diego blog an "Open Letter to Environmentalists" challenging them to campaign for "environmental goals on the basis of their own merit " while urging alarmists to "[l]et go of the global warming frenzy before it leaves [them] discredited and embarrassed."

Ethanol? WRONG! using food stocks for fuel has now created worldwide food shortages, plus higher prices on both food and fuel. We have the oil here... lets go get it!

Nuclear Energy? WRONG! we should tap this unlimited energy source NOW and fund it until it is powering every city in America. We have had this for decades and now fusion can be done without any waste. Hello? Hello?

Just look at the way liberals have undermined our nation's forest management efforts. Any credible forestry official will tell you that allowing vast regions of timberland to overgrow to the point they often do without thinning them out from time to time and putting in fire roads is a recipe for disaster. Yet, in spite of this common sense perspective, liberals still fight tooth and nail against anyone who tries to cut down a few trees. Their success in this regard has contributed to some of the most devastating wildfires in the history of this country, but do they ever take a step back and reevaluate their position in the face of evidence of its destructiveness?

Edward Daley RENEW May 19, 2004

Meanwhile... CHINA plans to drill 60 miles of FL coast! Right Now.


The democrats worst nightmare has come true. (No, no WMD's have not been found in Bagdhad) In what can only be seen as a sharp rebuke to liberals who think tax cuts shrink government revenue, tax receipts for corporate and individuals are up a nice 15% over last year. Again! Liberals/democrats believe that if you cut taxes you will decrease revenues. Once again that has proven to be a fallacy just as when Reagan cut taxes in the 80's and doubled government revenues in the process. When you cut taxes you give people and businesses an incentive to grow. More tax PAYERS = More tax REVENUE.

This question of increased tax revenues when corporate, capital gains and income taxes are cut was posed to Barrack Obama during a debate, to which he replied with the need to increase taxes as a "punitive measure" for the rich CEO's. Good Grief!


Let us also never forget that "Progressive" call to punish the rich with that Yacht sales tax increase a few years back. This not only did not raise any taxes (as the wealthy simply stopped buying the yachts) but thousands of workers were put out of work by this wrong headed liberal policy.

BILL CLINTON'S INNOCENCE? WRONG (really embarrassingly wrong)!


The only gun control related law statistically proven to be effective are CONCEAL CARRY PERMIT laws...! These counties consistently have the lowest crime rates in the nation.

John Lott, a gun-control scholar, says the problems with such laws is that good intentions aren't enough. "What counts is whether the laws ultimately save lives. Unfortunately, too many gun laws primarily disarm law-abiding citizens, not criminals." He notes that some 40 states now have some kind of law allowing responsible citizens to carry concealed firearms. In most of those states, between 2% and 6% of all adults have such permits, thus giving citizens in a community the size of a university the knowledge that someone other than the local police will have access to self-defense.

Such laws have consequences. Mr. Lott and Bill Landes of the University of Chicago law school examined multiple-victim public shootings in the U.S. from 1977 to 1999 and found that when states passed right-to-carry laws, the rate of multiple victim public shootings fell by 60%. Deaths and injuries from multiple-victim public shootings fell even more -- an average of 78% -- as the remaining incidents tended to involve fewer victims per attack.

Letter to the Editor 2

It’s Official… White Folks are Least Racist!

Barrack Obama has given yet another race speech. We should have an over/under on this topic coming from his campaign. Mr. Obama recently told a crowd of supporters what to expect in the November election:

Obama - “We know what kind of campaign they’re gonna run. They’re gonna try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of… ME! They’re gonna say, you know, he’s young, he’s inexperienced, he’s got a funny name… did I mention he’s black?” (crowd roars with laughter)!

I have poured over the numerous articles, news reports, polls, and pundits and all seem to be continuing to focus on RACE as the main issue in the November election. And (naturally) all seem to come from the LEFT side of the aisle and feel America “isn’t ready” for a black American in the White House.

So let me get this straight… unless 100% of us vote for Obama come NOV then “we are not ready” for a black man in the white house? What a crock. Millions of Republicans (myself included) “were ready” for Colin Powell, Michael Steele, Lynn Swann, Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice, Walter Williams, Roy Innis, Ward Connerly, and Janice Rogers Brown to hold high positions in Govt (including the Presidency in Powell’s case). Where was the “goose bumps” and “momentous moment” speak in the media for these individuals?

Hmmm… what is the difference?

Oh yes, these are all conservative Black Republicans! Where was the cry of “Racism” when the LIBS were mounting disgraceful smears against these figures (from the Oreos hurled at Steele to the “modern day lynching” of Thomas in his nomination hearings)? The DEM party, from their historical racism to the nomination battle of 2008, have focused on IDENTITY POLITICS of race and gender, perfectly illustrated in the DEM nomination process. (Attention Mayor Bloomberg: this is wedge politics).

Of course there are racists in both parties. When will this change? Never! Man is imperfect and there will always be bigots out there. The LIBS don’t want to END racism they want to FIGHT racism. The truth is Powell would have beaten GW Bush back in 2000 for the REP nomination, and Black Republicans are elected all the time with little or no fanfare. Why is this? (rhetorical question - - the lib writers already know).

MLK stood for a colorblind society. These days all the media can talk about in the race is the RACE of the candidates and the RACE of the voters. This is a shame. Even the big lib commentators haven’t pegged this one yet… it is the views of the candidates and not their race that matters most to the electorate.

This election will feature (again) two mildly ho hum candidates in a lesser of 2 evils battle for the most important job in the world (after syndicated columnist of course).

You should all head over to the blog

The views are clearer and the writing is better.

STOP and THINK (pretty please)

For those of you against the Death Penalty:

By ANDREW O. SELSKY, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 40 minutes ago


GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba - Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said he would welcome becoming a "marytr" after a judge warned Thursday that he faces the death penalty for his confessed role as mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Wearing thick glasses and occasionally fussing with his turban or stroking his bushy gray beard, Mohammed seemed noticeably thinner in his first appearance since his capture in Pakistan in 2003. It was a stark contrast to the image the U.S. showed to the world back then, of a slovenly man with disheveled hair, an unshaven face and a T-shirt.

Mohammed also sang verses from the Quran, rejected his attorneys and told Judge Ralph Kohlmann, a Marine colonel, that he wants to represent himself at the war crimes trial. The judge warned that he faces execution if convicted of organizing the attacks on America. But the former No. 3 leader of al-Qaida was insistent.
