Sabotage!

Posted by bmac on March 31, 2008

“Democrats face long summer of bitter infighting”

Sure they do. Clearly, the Dems are pushing for Obama, in a bid to make sure they lose this election by a landslide. A gargantuan, crushing defeat at the hands of a more electable Democrat, John McCain.

Hey, either way, they win.

Three words: One Party System.

It’s happening my friends. Both parties have sabotaged their bases in a masterful “bait and switch” that leaves us fighting with each other while they merge parties, headed up by the political equivalent of a hot tranny, (and by that I mean someone who could fool you, but only if you’re very, very, very drunk. Like Danny Bonaduce) John McCain.

Sure, they’ll continue to have names like “Democrat” and “Republican” but the basic platforms will be almost indistinguishable. We all know McCain is gonna shove immigration right up our asses, and with a Dem house, our asses are gonna look like the Holland Tunnel. So there’ll be plenty of room for all the rest of McCain’s liberal agenda to fit, and if you think Republicans are gonna stop him, you can go try to find some, because I haven’t seen or heard from one in four years.

McCain and his BFF Teddy Kennedy, will be drunkenly driving over bridges with impunity, while actual Republicans become harder to find than a Yangtzee River Dolphin.

This clusterfuck of an election cycle is so clearly (at least to me, now that things have shaken out) set up to get McCain in the White House, that it’s almost laughable. Pit a Mormon against a kooky evangelical. A woman against a black guy. Mis-direction Houdini would be proud of. Divide and conquer.

Government is big business, and like any good corporation, their common interest is power. What better way to lube us up than to get McCain, a guy that Republicans will be forced to vote for, in office, so we can take that first real step into an undefined, meaningless Republican party, that will flow smoothly into what ultimately will become socialism.

Think I’m a conspiracy nut? Well, I don’t believe in any other conspiracy theory if that matters. Just tell me one, one single prominent Republican politician that has uttered a peep about much of anything of substance in the last four years, that hasn’t been all but shut down, or ignored….by the Republican party.

Cussing count: 2. clusterfuck, and ass.

Make that 4.

Condoleeza X?

Posted by bmac on March 29, 2008

Condi had an interesting take on the whole race issue that is all the rage now.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that the United States still has trouble dealing with race because of a national “birth defect” that denied black Americans the opportunities given to whites at the country’s very founding.

Argghhh. “Birth Defect.” Hey America, you were born with a birth defect! Every 4th of July, we’re celebrating the defective birth of our country! Yay! Oh please Condi, tell us more about how badly this country started!

“Black Americans were a founding population,” she said. “Africans and Europeans came here and founded this country together — Europeans by choice and Africans in chains. That’s not a very pretty reality of our founding.”

And don’t you ever forget it!

As a result, Miss Rice told editors and reporters at The Washington Times, “descendants of slaves did not get much of a head start, and I think you continue to see some of the effects of that.”

Hey, you know who else didn’t get much of a head start? Lot’s and lot’s of poor white people, like say, oh, I don’t know, ummm……the Irish? How about Asians? Things weren’t exactly rosy for them either. Maybe a whole lot of English folks who came here with nothing? Uhhh…..some Polish perhaps? French, Danish, Germans, Italians, many of whom did not even speak English when they got here? Jews seem to get a pretty raw deal too, in case you haven’t heard.

Racism has never been the sole property of blacks, it has belonged to everyone at one time or another.

This “defective birth” of a country has been a bastion of tolerance and acceptance for every single race and creed that ever showed up here, and granted, it doesn’t happen overnight, but it does happen. More-so than any other “non-defective” country on Earth.

condi.jpg

You know what needs to stop? This constant re-hashing of something none of us can do a damn thing about, or had anything to do with. You want us to feel guilty? We do. Trust me, we do. How much guilt is enough? Is there a cutoff? Because I’d like to know. Talking about the founding of our country as if it were an aberration doesn’t help anything. It can only hurt.

Once again, someone in the Bush administration let’s me down. I guess I had the vague notion Condi would be above this kind of petty dialogue, but I guess I was wrong.

I’m especially surprised to hear this from her, considering how much crap she’s taken from the left for being an “Aunt Tom.”

Bonus! Not one cuss word in this whole post!

Your Tax Dollars At Work

Posted by bmac on March 25, 2008

Obama’s taking a little vacation this week, in the Virgin Islands. That’s nice, he’s probably tired from campaigning 7 days a week for the last year and a half, and the gargantuan work load that goes along with being a U.S. Senator.

I wonder if anything could be going on in Illinois that might possibly require his attention, since you know, he’s been kissing babies and defending racists for a year and a half now, and the good people of Illinois pay him $165,200 a year to……..ummm…….uhhhh….I don’t know, what the fuck do we pay our Senators for anyway?

ov.jpg

What has Hillary been doing for New York lately? How about McCain? How’s Arizona doin’ Senator? Am I naive? How is it that these U.S. Senators can be persona non grata for two years at a clip with no measurable effect? Do they phone it in between church services? They always seem to find time for church.

Tell you what, let’s all run for President, and tell our bosses we’re gonna be…..busy for the next two years and give them an address to mail our checks to, and we may or may not be back, depending of course, on how the election turns out.

I wonder how that would go over.

It’s Official, MSM Called Out On SNL For Bias

Posted by bmac on March 23, 2008

I gotta say, SNL has risen from the dead yet again, the last couple years have been pretty good. The quality improved almost from the very moment the ridiculously over-rated, unfunny, Tina Fey left the show. Ditto for the slightly funnier, but still not as funny as he thinks he is, Jimmy Fallon, who seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth. That’s what you get for doing an “action” movie with Queen Latifah, dumbass. Who’s your agent, Tina Fey?

Speaking of Tina Fey, she hosted last night, and while the majority of last nights show sucked, (no doubt due to the Fey factor) the opening was hilarious, a parody of a Clinton/Obama debate on CNN, where they openly admitted their bias, and swooned over Obama. Questions to Obama were things like “Can I get you anything?” They even threw in a “picked at random” question from the audience, asked by the “Obama Girl” from YouTube. Totally nailed it.

I tried to find last nights opening on YouTube, but I couldn’t, maybe I just don’t know how to search it, but if you can find it, let me know.

So there you go leftards, can we just stop pretending the MSM is not an arm of the Democratic Party now? Once it’s been skewered on the left-leaning SNL, you can’t pretend it doesn’t exist any more.

Oh, and HAPPY EASTER!

Obama/Wright…..

Posted by bmac on March 17, 2008

I haven’t really commented on the whole Obama/Wright thing, because my opinion on it is, I guess, a little controversial, and I had to think about how to approach it without sounding like a racist. I don’t want to sit here and list all my non-racist credibility, I’ll just say I’m not a racist and leave it at that. If you think otherwise, there’s nothing I can do about it. It sucks that I feel I even have to qualify that, but it is what it is.

Here’s the controversial part:

Wrights views are not as “fringe” as the media would like you to believe.

In fact, his views are fairly common in the black community. Conspiracy theories run rampant. Everything from O.J. being framed, AIDS being manufactured to kill blacks, liquor stores being installed on every corner of the ghetto, the dis-proportionate number of black men in prison, every failure of the black community is routinely blamed on the white mans attempted genocide of blacks.

Wrights church, nor his views, are new or extreme. This is standard stuff in the ghetto, and beyond the ghetto to people like Barack Obama. Obama knew damn well what Wrights been saying for twenty years, and you better believe he believes a good portion of it. That’s just the way it is.

How do I know? I grew up in a black neighborhood, and attended mostly black and hispanic schools from 5th grade until graduation. I’ve heard this stuff my whole life. It’s not new to me.

If Obama pulls off a miracle and actually gets elected, nothing is gonna change. There’s no possible way he’ll be able to live up to what the black community is going to expect of him, and when he fails to do that, it will be consisdered another conspiracy, that he was either an Uncle Tom, or he was “installed” by the white man to make a fool of him. Race releations won’t be fixed, and we won’t suddenly be a united country where everybody’s colorblind, and anybody who thinks Obama is going to make that happen is naive and living in a bubble.

If anything, an Obama Presidency will pull the country further apart. Obama will be pulled in so many directions, and have to be everything to everybody, that he’ll be crushed under the weight, resulting in race relations being even worse by the time he leaves the mess of his first term.

Whites will also hang their hopes on Obama, so that they may feel released from the sins of their fathers, but they’ll be disappointed too, because he can’t give them that. No black President can give them that.

He is not the man, and this is not the time, and that’s just reality.

Update On Ferarro, Why She’s Right

Posted by bmac on March 13, 2008

From Drudge:

“Ferarro Quits Clinton Campaign After Furor On Racial Remark”

Well, there you go. Can’t mention race. Can’t talk about the obvious, lest you be branded a racist. Just the fact that this is a “furor” proves her point. Even being a woman and a Democrat doesn’t get her a pass.

The Clinton campaign confirms Geraldine Ferraro has stepped down from her role on the finance committee of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign after making racially charged remarks about Sen. Barack Obama.

“Racially charged remarks.” Wow. Better watch your mouth.

3625271837.jpg

McCain’s strategists are gonna have to parse every single word that comes out of his mouth for the next eight months. I bet they’re putting together a list of key words that cannot leave his lips. He’ll mess up though, and say something innocuous like “Black American,” and will be treated like he’s the friggen Grand Dragon of the KKK. I actually feel sorry for him, for all the landmines he’s gonna have to navigate his way through for the rest of the year.

Good luck debating real issues, this entire campaign is going to be based on how not to offend Obama.

Not only that, but like Hilary, McCain will have to defend Obama himself, if one of his people accidentally utter a word or phrase that’s verboten.

Dance PC Monkeys. Dance.

Oops, did I say monkeys? Ummm….I apologise, I Uhhh….. didn’t mean it like that, Ummm…..it’s just a phrase…..I love monkeys…I mean……no, I don’t love monkeys………oh shit.

My 2 Cents On The Spitz

Posted by bmac on March 12, 2008

What can I possibly add to the Spitzer thing, other than this is exactly why 40-50% of our population don’t bother to vote. And I don’t blame them. We vote these jackasses into office, and they proceed to believe they’re a fucking rock star, and behave as such. To be honest, I’m suspicious of anyone that runs for office, Democrat or Republican. It takes a certain kind of megalomaniacal power hungry dick to seek office these days. Maybe it always has.

I know a lot of Republicans are kind of jumping for joy at the fact that a Dem finally got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, but ultimately, this hurts all of us. It’s not like Republicans are much better really. Foley and bathroom stall-boy are even a little creepier, to me at least, than Spitzer.

Once again, the bar has been lowered. Once again, we just have to accept that it’s damn near impossible to expect our elected officials to not behave like they’re a member of the fucking Rat Pack. Once again, we get the government we deserve.

This is the argument I always get into with my liberal friends about Clinton. The old “it’s just a blowjob, so what blah blah, better than starting an illegal war, blah blah, nobody DIED!”

Maybe not, but Clinton lowered the bar with his lecherous antics, and brought a fucking trailer park white trash attitude to the Oval Office, that we’re still feeling the effects of, especially when 1 in 4 teenage girls has an STD, that most of them probably got by giving “harmless” blowjobs.

This will just add to the deserved mistrust and cynicism most Americans have of politicians, myself included. Aside from humiliating his family, Spitz has, like Clinton, taken all of us down a few notches, and made a mockery of public office, all over a little pussy.

It also confirms why I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. No matter how powerful you are, sooner or later, someone’s gonna rat you out.

Geraldine Ferraro Steals My Line

Posted by bmac on March 11, 2008

Here’s what I wrote 2 weeks ago.

Here’s Ferraro.

Coincidence? Of course, but hey, I said it first. She does try to throw in the sexist card for her girl though. Maybe I should become a Democratic strategist.

I was in L.A. again yesterday, and the only news story seemed to be the tap water loaded with pharmaceuticals. If by loaded you mean infinitesimal amounts that would require you to drink an entire Rose Bowl full of water for it to affect you. By the end of the day, I was terrified I’d grow a third eye if I got anywhere near the deadly, deadly tap water. This story got as much play in L.A. as the Spitzer story, and yes, they never ONCE mentioned he was a Democrat.

I’m so behind, I have to read up on the Spitzer thing, I honestly don’t know the details yet. By the time I do, the bones will be picked dry.

Stupid work.

Would Obama Be The Nominee If He Were White?

Posted by bmac on February 28, 2008

Why are Democrats flocking to a guy that has said nothing, done nothing, and has no real policy? A guy that offers nothing every other Democratic candidate didn’t also offer. A guy with far less experience than just about everybody that was in the running.

White guilt. White guilt is driving Obama’s campaign.

A vote for Obama is a vote against racism. A vote for Obama gives white liberals, especially wealthy white liberals, a chance to atone for the sins of their fathers. It gives them a chance to assure themselves that they are not a racist.

For a typical white liberal, Obama is the dream candidate, for not only do they get to prove to everyone that they are not a racist, to them it’s also a chance to spit in the face of all the rich white men they believe to be oppressors and imperialists, and to have a President with a Muslim name directly following the blashemous invading infidel, George Bush.

For liberals, it’s all about posturing, they rarely walk it like they talk it. For example, conservatives and registered Republicans routinely give more to charity, and donate blood much more than liberals and registered Dems. We all know how hypocritical they are about the environment and global warming.

Obama is the perfect guy for these people. All talk, no action. All image, no substance. To steal a line from a bunch of people smarter than me, he’s the perfect blank slate that every liberal can project their idealistic fantasy onto. With the added bonus for whites of finally getting their non-racist Bona-Fides, and a chance to really prove to the Muslim world that we like them, we really like them. We’re not afraid to have a President with a Muslim name, so hey, we’re cool now right?

When people say race is not an issue in this election, well I’m sorry, with Obama as the nominee, it’s the only issue in this election. Nobody will vote for Obama based on his policy. Republican strategists will have to walk on eggshells when ( and if ) they begin attacking him. This will be the kindest and gentlest Presidential campaign in history. McCain is already holding back, and if Hillary was the frontrunner, his guns would be blazin’.

If you think I’m wrong, ask yourself, everything else being the same, would Obama be the nominee if he were white and had a name like…..Joshua Stein? If he said all the same things, and did all the same things Obama does? If he promised hope and change? Would the media love and praise a Joshua Stein the way they love and praise Obama?

How do you think it would have gone over for John Edwards or Joe Biden if they refused to put their hand over their heart during the national anthem? Or if Bill Clinton said his wife having a shot at the Presidency was the first time he’s been proud of America? Or if Farrakhan had endorsed Hillary?

I think these are reasonable questions to ask, if anyone thinks race is not an issue in this election.

I’m Back (Mostly)

Posted by bmac on February 21, 2008

Howdy Y’all!

Things are starting to return to normal around here, although the definition of normal would be more like: no major life-altering developments in at least two whole weeks, as opposed to “normal.” We have to establish a whole new normal before things can actually be normal, if that makes any sense.

Let’s see, what’s happened since I’ve been gone?

Universities seem to be one of the most dangerous places to be these days. If my wife and I had kids in college, they’d be armed. “Gun free zone” or not. What exactly are universities doing to reassure parents that their kid won’t be assassinated during English Lit? College campuses are becoming fucking killing fields, and campus security ain’t gonna risk their $10.00/hr asses to do anything about a murderous kid with a death wish.

Hell, the police won’t either. By the time they’ve finished their “risk assessment,” 500 rounds have been fired.

I’ll never forget a video I saw from Columbine of the SWAT team inching their way across the cafeteria with full body armor and shields. It must have taken them a full half hour to cross that cafeteria the way they were moving. Pathetic. Am I insane, or when kids are getting shot, should some cops have enough balls to run in ala Jack Bauer and fucking handle it? 400 cops outside staring at maps while kids are being picked off like bugs. Has bureaucracy taken away all the basic instincts to help people that are being murdered while literally hundreds of law enforcement stand there and listen to it happen?

Let’s see, what else? Obama’s gonna be the Dem nominee. The Paris Hilton of politics, famous for doing nothing. Even his biggest supporters stumble when asked what he’s ever accomplished. I gotta admit, I didn’t see that one coming. It does make sense though, who really thought that screechy, shrill, awful woman could get elected? Above all else, a Presidential candidate has to have a likeable personality. Well, except maybe Nixon. But every other President in my lifetime has been someone the average American would like to have a beer with. Or a cigar (IYKWIM) It’s a popularity contest more than anything, and Obama is the cool, good lookin’ head of the debate team guy, to Hillary’s dorky, angry, band-camp chick.

Obama will be crushed in the general. Crushed. But the media will fudge the numbers somehow, so it doesn’t look like America is full of redneck hillbillies.

Eventually, he’ll have to talk about something other than vague platitudes, and that will do him in.

That, and the fact that he’s black. With a Muslim name. Trust me, even Democrats will think twice when they step into that voting booth and see the name “Barack Hussein Obama” on the ballot they’re about to cast. And then they’ll promptly lie about it to pollsters.

Obama will have the highest exit poll numbers in history.

The media will be scratching their collective heads when the actual numbers get tallied. It’ll be the old “but everybody I know voted for him.”
