This would be funnier if it weren’t true.
Sometimes I wonder if we are destined to lose this country. Opposition exists here, in this form of reporting, but honestly it is a very feeble opposition. It is just enough for those of us with a common ideology to find some solace in knowing of each others existence. To find some solace in finding common bonds while the government makes power grab after power grab and spends trillions of dollars of are money. And to have an occasional laugh. But ultimately we offer little resistance. You write your letter to your congressman, sure, but you and I both know it doesn’t make any difference. At least not now, with the majorities in Congress and Comrade Barry as CIC. In being conservatives we are typically ingrained with a code or rule-set that we will follow. The opposition has no such code; they seek power only. Sometimes I wonder if the only chance we have is to physically take this fight to them. I wonder if we have just reached a point where we can no longer afford to go along with this madness. Sure, their ineptitude might get us back into office 4 years from now, or 8 years from now. But what’s going to be left? Another crippling round of the New Deal, but the world is much different than it was 75 years ago, and frankly this nation will not stand as a global power over anything if we cannot become more efficient in a society sense.

…Says the fat geek posting from his mom’s basement. Enlisted yet, tough guy? Just like you’re afraid to go fight in Iraq, you’re afraid to follow up on your fake macho, walter mitty-esque threats from behind an anonymous internet handle. Obviously getting off your ass and doing something would interfere with your 10 hours of talk radio a day.
I always wanted to serve in the Armed Forces of this nation, to this day I still contemplate at least joining the Army Reserves in some role as an engineer (although much less so since Comrade Barry became the CIC and the Iraq situation that may now end like Vietnam because of the decisions he has made). But I could never cope with the idea of suppressing the ability to think for oneself. Frankly I don’t understand how anyone can.
I don’t listen to talk radio; my opinions are my own. I pay for my own housing (and probably your mortgage as well). Yesterday I pushed a 450 lb safe up a flight of stairs by myself because I enjoy my second amendment rights. So if you ever come upon a man in this world that you suspect to be me, feel free to push him. I can only hope that you will push hard enough that he is legally justified in defending himself.
In the future I will not further dignify your posts with a response; you are clearly incompetent.
Jp, While I do not doubt your intelligence, I happen to disagree with your direction. I also do not doubt your ability to move a big giant safe. That said, Iraq turning into Vietnam? Really? Wasn’t the left saying that for 6 years? In addition always picking out a person’s shortcomings, ie; employment, mortages etc, when you know nothing of that person, leads one to beleive it is your shortcomings? Comedian Patton Oswalt pointed out in 2004, that “4 more years of Dubya will destroy the Republican Party for at least a decade.” Apparently he was onto something. The policies put forth by the GOP for the last 8 years did not work, so why not try a different path for awhile? You claim to have this great patriotism, yet are willing to allow your fellow citizens to wither in a poor economy as a result of deregulations comliments of Reagan, NAFTA compliments of Bush Sr. and Clinton, and overzealous spending in the wrong places by Bush Jr. There is plenty of blame to go around, in the meantime do your American duty and act like an American!
Thank you for your (consideration of) service. I am a bit disturbed by your defeatist attitude….how can we win in Iraq when ordinary Americans like yourselves will not sacrifice? Nevertheless, thank you for supporting the troops (with your words).
However, in your original post you suggested some kind of violent insurrection against the US government. Isn’t this treason? Has anyone else noticed the virulent ANTI-AMERICANISM from conservative media as of late? Conservatives have some well reasoned and valid ideas about how to govern…it’s unfortunate their party is now run by the most brainless, crass, ad hominem shock pundits…as this is the path a majority of Republicans have chosen we can expect to enjoy the continued shrinkage and decline from relevance of the Southern Party.
Ghost, I wouldn’t have made the statement that Iraq was turning into Vietnam 6 years ago, 4 years ago, or even 1 year ago. This became reality the second that Obama announced we would be withdrawing from Iraq in August of 2010. The enemy, while not the equal of our nation’s armed forces, is not stupid. They will develop a strategy that continues to keep them in the game until then. Most likely attacks on American forces (and American casualties) will escalate in the months immediately preceding our withdraw. Obama will then be forced to reconsider his withdraw date (and look foolish, but what’s new) or continue with his plans and watch as the enemy declares victory. Either way, it is clear that Barry is more concerned about placating his misguided supporters that he is about the well being of this country.
“In addition always picking out a person’s shortcomings, ie; employment, mortages etc, when you know nothing of that person, leads one to beleive it is your shortcomings?”
Whoa whoa whoa, I think we have an aspiring psychiatrist on our hands! Sadly you will not make for a very good shrink; I have very lucrative employment, my skills/abilities/experience will always allow me to possess a similar level of employment, and I have never been late with rent. Maybe you better keep looking…
Truthfully Ghost, I want for you to be successful. I want for your children, if you have any, to be successful. To have the same opportunities that we have had, if not more so. I want for this country to maintain and even extend its greatness in every sense of that statement. But the harsh truth of this matter is under the current political direction (not real conservative policy) this will never happen. If you feel otherwise, you are misguided and you are wrong. You have asked me to tolerate a different path for but a while? My god man, look at what Barry has presided over in just the few months since the inauguration! Wake the fuck up!
LLP, “how can we win in Iraq when American’s such as myself will not sacrifice?”
Have you been out of the loop for a while? Obama has already announced the date on which we will retreat from Iraq. Convince yourself otherwise if it makes you feel better but in August of 2010 when Obama begins the withdrawal (regardless of the size of the security forces remaining) the enemy will claim victory. If you are truly concerned about finishing the job in Iraq maybe you better go have a conversation with your CIC (whom I am assuming you voted into office).
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
I would argue that the actions of the current governing body are consistent with levying war against the American populace and in general the well being of this nation. Similarly there is a reason that the governing bodies of Arizona, New Hampshire, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Washington (and by my current understanding some others) are developing legislation that affirms their individual sovereignty and attempts to re-establish federalism. And these legislative efforts are just the beginning.
