Politics makes my brain hurt

I’ve been listening to the Democratic National Convention.  No, I can’t explain why.  Maybe it is to fuel my boundless rage… Maybe I’m just a masochist… Maybe I’m the guy that just can’t help buy stare at the carnage as you drive past a car wreck on the freeway.

 

All I know is that I actually hate these people.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t hate rank and file democrats.  Most of you, the sane ones anyway, who aren’t hugging trees, or protesting Marine recruiters, are probably as sick of your party apparatchik as I am of mine.

 

But I hate the democrats in charge right now.  Holy crap, what a bunch of nut-logs. 

 

Okay, Barack Obama, who’s the #1 most left wing liberal in the senate, picked the #3 most left wing liberal in the senate, to be his running mate.  Wow.  Big tent there. 

 

Joe Biden wrote the first assault weapons ban. People of Ohio and Pennsylvania and Michigan, please keep that in mind as Obama tells you that he’s not going to push for any new gun laws. Oh yeah, he’s going to let all of us “typical white people” just keep “clinging to our guns and religion.” No problem there.

 

Barack Obama actually thought it was okay for you to try to abort a baby, and if it came out alive during the partial birth abortion, to just let it die.  Don’t take my word for it. He’s the only person in the entire legislature of one of most corrupt states in the country who actually thought that was just swell. Heck, it’s one of the few things he actually took a stand on. Whoops, this one’s still alive.  That’s okay, let’s just leave it here for awhile until it dies.  Pesky little brat. 

 

Yeah, we sure wouldn’t want those kids to grow up in poverty with unhappy familes… ‘cause that wouldn’t be kind.  Well, listen up douchebag, I grew up in poverty with an unhappy family, and I’m still pretty damn glad that nobody cracked my skull open and wire-whisked my brains because I was inconvenient for to my mom. 

 

I’ve disliked politicians before. I thought Bill Clinton was a scumbag, but I had to respect him as probably one of the best politicians of all time (that’s actually not a compliment).  I thought Al Gore was insane.  I thought John Kerry was a pathetic shell of a man.  But I actually think I hate Obama.

 

And I’m no Republican shill.  I think George Bush was domestically weak, not a true conservative, but I could admire his stance on killing terrorist scumbags.  I think John McCain is basically a middle of the road democrat, but at least he’s a grown up and not-a-Marxist. 

 

But Obama?  He’s a man who’s basically done nothing in his life. He has no experience, gives a good speech off the teleprompter, but then chokes like an idiot when he’s not scripted. 

 

When asked a very difficult question, he replies with, “that’s above my pay grade to answer with any specificity.” 

 

Huh?

 

Pay grade?  Friggin’ pay grade?  You want to be the President Of The United States of America.  What pay grade is above you?  Do you need to consult with George Soros first? 

 

Well, part of the problem was that the question was about when life actually started.  John McCain clearly answered after less than a second with what he thought.  Since Barack thought that a kid who was born alive and breathing actually didn’t have civil rights, and could just be left to die, then I could see why he might be a little hesitant to actually answer the question.

 

Idiot. 

 

Every time he opens his mouth, he’s got another proposal for another idiot program where government gets to be our dad.  I’ve still not seen anybody in the regular media dare to ask him about what he meant with his Civilian National Security Force.  But since ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and every major newspaper in the country’s reporters are too busy providing him oral sex during the interviews, it might be hard to get to those tough questions. 

 

But NOOOO… foolish right winger, there’s no media bias.  (see, that’s why all the reporters are wearing PURPLE during the convention, I kid you not).  There’s no bias.  That’s why when I’m buying my friggin’ Slurpee at 7-11 and look at the magazine rack, ¾ of the magazines have Barack Obama on the cover, none have John McCain, and Rolling Stone doesn’t even have a caption or any words, they’ve just got a picture of Barack with his little smile, and they’re worshipping him like he’s Jesus.  (Rolling Stone got Jesus and Kayne West mixed up last year though, so you’ve got to give them a little slack).  The only magazines he wasn’t on the cover of was Guns & Ammo and Monster Truck Weekly.

 

There’s no media bias. So how many of you turned on the regular news and caught that the Zogby poll had McCain leading for the first time?  You know, the Zogby poll, which has been the most reliable one in the country for like the last 16 years in a row?  Yeah, that one.  No?  You didn’t see that?  SHOCKING…  But I bet you did see that McCain owned a bunch of houses.  Yeah, big mean rich people, what with their buying houses instead of donating all their money to crack whores.  How many houses does Ted Kennedy (who in the words of the press “electrified” the convention) own?  Nancy Pelosi?  Naw… Barack only owns one really big house which was paid for by a mobster in exchange for purchasing votes and sweet Illinois contracts… But I should just stop with my crazy talk.  Stupid mean Republicans. 

 

I listened to Bill Clinton’s speech tonight.  Now my head hurts. If anybody out there is a student of history, or you actually paid any attention and have a memory longer than that of a fruit fly, you would know that he flat out LIED and just rewrote history.  No problem.  Don’t worry, he’ll get a pass.

 

My business is suffering because my customers are paying $4 a gallon for gas.  Every business in the country is suffering because of this.  America is suffering.  We could lower the price of oil within 24 hours if the Democrat Congress would just vote on the stinking energy bill, but Nancy Pelosi sent everybody on VACATION, that way the Dems couldn’t vote and be held accountable by their constituents. 

 

But somehow, this is all the Republican’s fault, because the news said it is. 

 

The sad thing is that the Republican’s are all such spineless pansies that they’re preparing for a defeat in congress and the senate. 

 

Idiots. 

 

Hammer home the fact that we’re getting raped at the pumps while the democrats take a 5 week vacation from voting on energy.  Hammer home the fact that their nominee thinks that it is okay to take a baby that was born alive and let it die, because hell, you tried to kill it, little bastard was just tough.  Hammer home how their VP thinks banning all guns in America is an idea “whose time has come”. Point out how their nominees entire message to beat Hillary was about pulling out of Iraq, only to get to right now, and- whoops-we’re winning, never mind.  (which by the way, go to hell Harry Reid you worthless sack of shit for saying that we’d already lost.  Eat crow you son of a bitch).    

 

These things should be a no-brainer.  Just because the press is against you doesn’t mean we’re going to lose. SCREW THE PRESS.  All of us out here with any intelligence quit paying attention to them awhile ago.

 

We should take these issues, sharpen them to a point, and then stick them in, and break them off.  Republicans, quit trying to be Democrats.  Grow a spine and take a stand.

 

The other day I saw a bumper sticker.  It said:

 

Aw, F**k it.

McCain ‘08

The less repulsive of the two democrats running.

 

Now that is a campaign slogan that I can get behind. I’m no McCain fan, but he’s a better man that Obama. In the next couple of days I’m going to see if McCain picks a running mate that doesn’t totally suck.  That would actually be kind of nice.  It would be really cool if he picked an actual Republican or something, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

So now experience matters...

You know, it’s always interesting to read your blog from the other end of the political spectrum. My issue with Obama isn’t that he’s too liberal; matter of fact, he’s really not. He and McCain are funded by almost exactly the same corporate interests (if you’re interested in letting Rolling Stone redeem itself, there’s a really good article on the respective campaign contributions of the two candidates in the new one). No, my issue with Obama is that he’s basically useless. This is nothing new, most politicians are essentially useless regardless of whatever talk of “change” they might offer. But… Read more »

I watched part of Biden’s speech. I made the mistake of actually listening to the words. After 6 or 8 sentences my brain actually began to auto-respond with “that’s crap”.
In half of his statements he contradicted himself.
I quit listening when he said something about how we should go to war in Georgia.

It’s long past time the rational population voted the idiots out of office. This is our fault – we let it get this bad and it’s up to us to fix it.

I have made it my duty to change the channel as fast as humanly possible every time the DNC is on, or there’s any coverage of the DNC on. I am so sick of hearing about the Dems fellating themselves I can’t see straight. I thought about taking your position; watching out of sheer morbid curiosity. It didn’t take me too long to remember what a migraine headache feels like, so I passed. We know damn well what the current group of leftist, Marxist fucktards are trying to do to this country.

tweaker: You think that’d be any different if the neocons all got their way? Christ, did you see the 2004 Republican National Convention, starring Rudy “9/11” Guiliani? Both of the parties are completely full of themselves, and also completely full of shit. Whether you’re buying into the theme of “Obama is America’s savior!” or the theme of “Democrats are commies so we need four more years of Bush Lite!,” you’re playing into their hands and falling for their bullshit. Democrats don’t have enough balls to be commies. They know commies don’t get elected, so even if they really wanted implement… Read more »

Many liberals don’t think other liberals are all that liberal. Personally, I have no idea what standards one uses to measure a person’s level of conservativity or liberaloisity. I’m not fond of these political labels and red state/blue state camps anyway. So I have no idea if Senator Obama is a liberal by whichever definition you want to use. Here are some things I do know, though: -Senator Obama wants the government to be in charge of the medical treatment of every single American (“health care”). -Senator Obama wants the government to decide what’s fair and what cannot be said… Read more »

Well, my own definition of “liberal” (as in when I tell people I’m a liberal) is social permissiveness, with strong funding of health/welfare/education. But I suppose that’s really neither here nor there. I have no problem with making healthcare available to everyone. The problem is that everyone seems to see it as either the insurance companies and private hospitals are the greatest thing ever, and/or socialized healthcare would necessarily be of poor quality and lead inevitably to rationing, bread lines, and flags with hammers and sickles on them. In reality, public and private healthcare are no more mutually exclusive than… Read more »

False. Obama has been on record opposing the fairness doctrine.

“False. Obama has been on record opposing the fairness doctrine.” Oh really. And you believed him, huh? So when Nancy Pelosi’s congress passes a Fairness Doctrine bill, he’ll veto it, then? Just like the Democratic congress has ended the Iraq War and removed the Patriot Act? *snicker* Nick…I have a question for you. I listed a bunch of gripes with the policies of Democrats in general. You counter with a “well, Bush is bad!” argument. Did I say anything about Geoge W. Bush in my post that would lead you to believe I am a supporter of his? Well, I… Read more »

I never accused you of being a Bush supporter; perhaps I should have been more clear–my point was only that voting for McCain, the other realistic option besides Obama, is hardly a vote for a government or party that respects the Constitution. By the same token, I am not an Obama supporter, or a Democrat of any type; I despise the Democrats almost as much as the Republicans. Congress authorized war spending (even if you’re against the war, you have to authorize spending money on it lest you be on the receiving end of a campaign ad accusing you of… Read more »

Nick, I have to say, you make good and salient points, even if I disagree with you. Reasonable political discussion on the internet is a rare thing, and it’s appreciated. I listed to Senator Obama’s complete speech tonight on the radio. It was a good speech, I mean, a really good speech. Excellently executed. So much hot air, I think, but that’s the way it goes. Couple of points came to mind, though. The Senator was discussing people that can’t afford their cars, and can’t afford their credit card bills, and that the government should step in to solve it.… Read more »

True, this is the internet. I suppose I should call you a Nazi or something. Then you can tell me I’m a godless Communist who hates America, freedom, and apple pie. Just watched the speech on Youtube (I’ve been trying to avoid watching TV all week). You’re right, it was fucking amazing. Obama has the same ability Reagan did–even if you don’t agree with a word he says, there’s a part of you that wants to pump your fist and start chanting “U-S-A!” when he gets done speaking. Aside from the rhetoric though, I was actually impressed with how substantive… Read more »

I don’t think the Big Left is as open minded and about “choice” as they like to claim they are. I’ll give you an example: Social Security. I don’t want Social Security. I don’t think it’s going to be there when I’m old enough to collect it, and my mom’s experience has taught me that if you expect the Government to take care of you when you’re old, you’re misguided at best. I want to opt out of Social Security. I’m willing to sign a binding, permanent agreement with Social Security Administration stating that I will no longer be taxed… Read more »

On a completely unrelated note, it’s August 29th, 2008. We’re at the eleven-year anniversary of when Skynet caused a nuclear holocaust and started the machines’ efforts at exterminating mankind.

Yeah and we got real Marxists and commies in parliament opposition, thats real disguisting. And they propably win next elections that’s even worse.

NC: Well, the problem with taxes is that we all end up paying for things we don’t like. I’m paying money for a war I didn’t want the US to start, I’m paying salaries to Congress (most of whom I hate) and George W. Bush, I’m paying tax money to fund religious groups and “abstinence-only” education. I’d like to opt out of all of that. True, I get some of it back, since I’m still listed as a dependent (mostly so I can be on my dad’s health insurance plan, which is excellent), but the point remains. Paying for things… Read more »

Oh really. And you believed him, huh?

I just think there is no point getting too worked up about something that has not even been introduced as a bill and that Obama supposedly doesn’t support.

I honestly have no way of knowing whether this will be a major issue in the nest 4 years, but I somehow doubt it. There isn’t much support outside of some Democrats and there is caselaw that puts into doubt the Constitutionality.

“I think we should have a baseline standard of healthcare available to everyone, and free public education, with the option for private services in both areas. I’m hardly calling for government repossession of farmland.” Okay, once again, nothing provided by the government is free. Replace “free” with “taxpayer funded”. There is no such thing as “free”. You might not be calling for that. There were a couple of representatives in Congress calling for that nationalization of oil refineries. Guess which party they belonged to?

Everyone keeps saying “All these technologies will take 10 years to come on line”. But these same people were saying that 10 years ago.

And we’ll likely still be using them in 10 more years. So let’s like, plan for the future and get some of them underway.

The big problem with nuclear power right now is that “spent” fuel rods are still like, 96% good material. But the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty forbids recycling them. Thank you, Jimmy Carter.

We could solve a lot of the “nuclear waste” issue by renegotiating the NPT.

Goddammit. I just wrote a big long response to Larry and NC and then closed the wrong tab. So, main points to Larry–Check the US Geological Survey of 1998 for the amount of oil in ANWR (between 5.7 and 16 billion barrels of oil). Then check for daily US oil consumption–over 20 million barrels. The best case scenario at current consumption rates is that ANWR would provide around 2 years of recoverable oil, and that’s once it started to show up on the market, which wouldn’t be for a while and certainly not soon enough to lower gas prices in… Read more »

Over a decade ago I was living in Venezuela. A former paratrooper who attempted a coup de etat was given a presidential pardon in order to “heal the nation” and “bring us together” and the former paratrooper also agreed that bringing the people together was a priority and that he was the Hope for the country. He launched into a political campaign under the banner of universal health care, reducing poverty, affordable housing and re distributing the oil profits for the poorest in the nation. He was wildly popular under the promise of “change” and won my a landslide which… Read more »
