Choose what you'll loose November 7th.

If you're thinking of not voting this coming election day take a minute and read this. Hopefully I'll give you some food for thought. Because when it comes right down to it, You choose, what you'll loose.

It's pretty simple really...this coming election day, as always, you have a choice to vote for whichever candidate you want to represent you in Congress.
Once you close that curtain, no one can tell you (or see) which lever to pull - which button to push - or which ballot line to mark. Not your dopey husband, your wonderful wife, your kids, your in-laws, your parents, your sisters or brothers, your boss, your neighbors - NO BODY! Once you close that curtain neither FoxNews, NewsMax, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN or Aljazeera can influence the vote you will cast for yourself, your children & your grandchildren.

It's just you and that voting booth.

If you vote Democratic: (Ergo, the Democrats win control of the House & Senate)
  • Any tax cuts you have received will be repealed
  • The Patriot Act will be rescinded
  • Detained terrorists (Gitmo & around the world) will have the same rights as United States citizens
  • Funding for the War on Terror will be halted
  • U.S. military will be removed from Iraq, opening the country to Islamic Fundamentalism
  • Fundamentalist Islamic states will be appeased & negotiated with
  • North Korea will be directly negotiated with (instead of the 6 country talks in Kyoto Accords)
  • State and Federal Judges will increase legislation from the bench (No longer a need for you to vote!)
  • Increased border protection will take a back-seat to legislated amnesty for millions of illegal aliens
  • John Conyers will begin impeachment hearings against the President & Vice President, making Nancy Pelosi third in line for the Presidency.
If you vote Republican: (The Republicans retain control of the House & Senate)
  • War against terrorism will continue until Afghani and Iraqi governments & militaries are strong enough to take over
  • Islamic Fascists will find it harder to destroy freedom started in Afghanistan & Iraq
  • North Korea held in check
  • Iran will be closely scrutinized
  • Continued vigilance will prevent terrorists attacks on U.S. soil (5 years and counting!)
  • Another 2 years to strengthen borders before 2008 Presidential election
  • Two more years of a growing economy, and low unemployment.

Now personally, I believe that neither party in Congress has done a very good job. (The Democrats have been totally obstructionist - and the Republicans haven't lead the way they could/should have). But when the choices for a safe future for me and my family are between a party hell-bent upon liberalizing our country - through socialization, appeasement and military weakness; or the other who's continued use of military force has protected us from terrorist attacks here at home since 2001...well I guess I'd rather be safe and labeled a "cowboy," than weak and labeled a "target."

"Ripple of Hope Award" = Democratic Hypocrisy

Talk about Democratic Hypocrisy.....Here's a real funny one!
In the latest edition of "The Insider's Report" from NewsMax it was reported;
That Ethel Kennedy will present the Robert F. Kennedy "Ripple of Hope Award" to Bill Clinton at a fund-raiser in New York.

The award is given to those who effect positive changes in the lives of others, and will be presented to the former president at the Oct. 9 event at the Chelsea Piers in New York.

The affair will feature a reception, dinner and a performance of the play Speak Truth to Power: Voices from Beyond the Dark, with stars including Martin Sheen, Lorraine Bracco, Christian Slater, Peter Boyle, Sharon Stone and Sigourney Weaver.

Tickets start at $1,000, and the proceeds will benefit the work of the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial.
If this wasn't so tragic it would be funny! Bill Clinton effecting positive changes in the lives of others???
Uh-huh. Give me a break!
  • Like Jennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddric and Monica Lewinsky!
  • Let's not forget those Americans screwed by Bill Clinton's racial quota policies!
  • Let's not forget the 17 dead American service men "positively effected" during the Cole Incident!
Are those the people whose lives Bill Clinton effected a positive change in ?????

That's like saying that Teddy Kennedy effected a positive change in the life of Mary Jo Kopeckny!!!!

Bob Woodward's War with Conservatives.

With everything else we need to digest these days, last Friday brought the third book about the Bush Presidency from Bob Woodward. The book is entitled "State of Denial."

During the writing of his previous two books, Woodward had been pretty fair on his Republican foe's in office. (Was this a calculated ploy? Is my conservative paranoia showing?) I guess because of his earlier treatment, the White House this time instructed senior members to give him access and sit for interviews. (Donald Rumsfeld being the smartest of the bunch by not agreeing to do so). Two words spring to mind regarding the White House 'take' on the subject....naive and "set-up."

Naive: because unlike me (who is trying but failing miserably to give liberals an even break) the White House didn't see the "wolf in Woodward clothing" laying an ambush for them.
Set-up: because while his previous two books did relatively well in sales, I can easily see Woodward setting the trap in his two previous publications, so that he'd receive unfettered access this time, and he'd be able to spring his ambush right before the midterm elections. (It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you!)

Bob Woodward, IMHO....wants to ride off into his personal sunset being able to claim that he brought down one Republican administration, and significantly hamstrung another. I group Woodward with the likes of Dan Rather, Chris Matthew's, Michael Moore, and Arianna Huffington....rapacious liberals who will never pass up a chance to slander our conservative President....usually from the comforts of their multi-million dollar homes, or while lauding the efforts of Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, and Bill & Hill.

Newsweek's cover story in the October 9th. issue, excerpts "State of Denial" and has Woodward describing President Bush as "incurious & clueless;" SecDef Rumsfeld as "bullying & petty;" and SecState Condoleezza Rice as "whining, and a pathetic figure."

I guess I shouldn't have expected anything more from either Newsweek or Woodward. But since the gloves are apparently coming off, I just hope that conservative pundits respond in kind. I know I will.
