Jacksonville - this week.


Politics, sorry!

I got a little fired up over the past few days regarding politics. So, here is another post about my varying views with the "right." I'll try and stop the rants, but I've been a bit "put off" by some recent comments.

This post highlights some recent comments by Rush "the beacon of hope" Limbaugh. 

"We want every American to be the best he or she chooses to be. We recognize that we are all individuals. We love and revere our founding documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We believe that the preamble of the Constitution contains an inarguable truth, that we are all endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights, among them life, liberty, freedom -- and the pursuit of happiness," 

Apparently Rush wasn't including those who are gay or lesbian. Rush's comments sound great but are a little hypocritical don't you think? We are ALL endowed by our creator... Notice it doesn't specify what religion. 

Here's another good one:
"He (Obama) wants people in fear, angst and crisis, fearing the worst each and every day, because that clears the decks for President Obama and his pals to come in with the answers, which are abject failures, historically shown and demonstrated. Doesn't matter. They'll have control of it when it's all over. And that's what they want," Limbaugh said.

Fear, angst, crisis? This sounds familiar. Remember the republicans selling the war in Iraq? The entire country was forced to believe that if we didn't invade Iraq, there would be numerous mushroom clouds across the US. The fact is; Republicans, namely "W" Bush, invented the politics of fear. About 6 years ago, I was an UN-American, commie, socialist, Muslim lover since I didn't agree with the war in Iraq. Remember when we were told if we bought "french fries" that the terrorists would win. If we disagreed with Bush, the terrorists won. If we disagreed at all with the Bush policies on Iraq, well then, we should just go live in Canada. So, sorry Rush, you and your party invented fear, angst and crisis when you decided to invade another country and you wanted every American on board with that decision.
Also, show me the facts that demonstrate your idiotic comment since you say that these "failures" are shown and demonstrated.

I could keep going, but I'd rather be doing something more productive than waste time talking about Rush Limbaugh.

GOOD WORK. I like nothing more than a good rant and that was right up there with them.

U know what i liked? The part that said "We want every American to be the best he or she CHOOSES to be." I woulda thought u'd want them 2 b the BEST THEY CAN BE not CHOOSE 2 b. Geez, i know alot of ppl choose 2 do nothing and sponge off every1 else yet they can b alot better, we call them DOLE BLUDGERS.

On that, i just realised that CHOOSE is a stupid sounding word. Not as bad as bangle but it's close. Say it 10 times and c what u think.

Have a good 1.

How do you get an anti-gay message from Rush's first quote? Do you even know that Obama is anti-gay marriage, which means he just like the "radicals" on the right. He is no different than Rush. Look up Proposition 8 in California and see what voters turned out to defeat that measure. Democratic Obama voters. Before you point the finger at the Republican Party about being anti-gay, you better get some perspective and facts.
