New pledge for Berkeley and most Californians

So, with this Berkeley crap ( the ungrateful *&*O&(^^&%^$%*^$%^&(*)&^)*&()), I have decided they need a new pledge. I have a few different versions, but am in need of help. So, I will change it as I get suggestions.

Version I: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the ungrateful state of California, and to the greed for which it stands, one nation under Hollywood for selfish freedoms I will stomp on all!

Version II: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the ungrateful state of California, and to the greed and selfishness for which I live, one New World Order under Hollywood, for freedoms I enjoy and will not defend or allow for others

Version III: I pledge allegiance to nothing except for my ideals and the power, money and ass kissers they bring me

Buzz's Version: "I pledge my regions to the fags of the Republic of California and to the repugnance for which they stand, indignation against God, not responsible, with marijuana and open borders for all."
Buzz, I just don't think I can improve on your version. It says soooo much :)

Musings of the Ragin' Mrs.

We were sitting on the couch drinking coffee. I was surfing the web on some page or another, and she was reading over my shoulder. And she looks at me and says "You know, the only real difference between the dregs of society and the rich today is the price tags on their clothes. Otherwise they both act the same and do the same dumb shit."

Anyone who wants to argue with that, may I present Paris Hilton?

I'm sure you've seen this

But I think it needs to be spread around so that EVERYONE can see the kind of evil that we're fighting in the war on terror. Al-Queda is now using mentally retarded women as suicide bombers. The bombs were remote-detonated, which means that these women either didn't want to do it, or they didn't even know what they were carrying.

Just how sick and twisted do you have to be in order to do this kind of thing? Does anyone want to blather on about how Bush is a terrorist right now? Please, blather that around me, and I'll hit you so damn hard you'll be shitting your teeth for a week. Because it's time for that kind of stupidity to become painful again.

Go read the whole thing.

F**k you, Berkeley

As if being a cesspool of groupthink and Leftist ideologies wasn't bad enough, Berkeley, California is now attempting to kick out USMC recruiters.

Question their patriotism? Why yes, I do. Hell, I question their desire to be Americans, as most of them feel more of a kindred spirit with the old USSR than they ever have to this country. Fuck them all to hell in a handbasket. Pull every last federal dollar out of Berkeley. Pull it from UC-Berkeley. Pull them from the city. Make damn sure that none of my tax dollars ever go to that subhuman shithole, that cankersore on humanity's ass, that festering pile of idiots, morons, maggots and parasites.

Fuck you Berkeley, and I hope that the terrorists blow up that shithole before any other city. Now, I don't talk that way about my fellow citizens, but Berkeley has just proven to me that THEY ARE NOT MY FELLOW CITIZENS. They are not American in thought, they are not American at heart, and their loyalties are certainly not American as they have proven time and time again. I see no reason to keep Berkeley as part of the USA. Cut them off, like a gangrenous body part. Get rid of them so that the body can heal. They can join San Francisco as cities that need to be fenced in and cut off from this great country. They don't deserve to be part of America. Fuck them.

This country will not fall because barbarians are at the gates. This country will fall because the anti-American shitheads like the ones that populate Berkeley and San Fran will open the gates to those barbarians willingly. I see no reason why they shouldn't die first for their actions, and I see no reason to protect them from themselves. I certainly don't want to support them with my taxes. Let them all go to hell, go live in your little commune, go join france for all I care, but go away.

I wish there were more like this

Just got to surfin' Kim du Toit's blog, and I happened upon a particular court martial.

I wish there were more like this one.

Seriously, go read it. I laughed for about five minutes straight. It was just what I needed tonight.

This is how (D)emocrats support the troops...

The earlier post by Steve B. in which he quotes a soldier:
"Man, if Clinton wins, it think we're going to start longing for the Carter years."
Is certainly related to this post at GatewayPundit
Sorry WaPo.. More Soldiers Committed Suicide When Clinton Was in Office Than During the Bush Years
The MainStreamMedia, and their 'political wing', the (D)emocrats, perpetually lie about those who serve.

The Consequences are quantifiable.

The Raging_Dave knew about this, but I hadn't heard about it. It put a smile on my face. :)

"America's Choice! Battle Buddies,
I need your help!"

This year, America has the opportunity to select a surprise 16th pageant finalist with "Miss America: America's Choice", an online competition that allows viewers to vote for their favorite Miss America contestant. I could really use all the support from my battle buddies in the Army family to help me stay in the fight.

- Sgt. Jill Stevens



Jill's Biography

For the past 6 years, Jill Stevens has been serving in the US Military as a Combat Medic in the Utah National Guard, while earning her degree in Nursing at Southern Utah University. In November 2003, Jill was deployed to Afghanistan, returning home in April 2005. She has earned 5 medals for her outstanding service, and was the first female finisher of the inaugural Afghanistan Marathon, making a total of 12 marathons she has completed together with earning the highest Fitness award during Army Basic Training. In representing the Army National Guard, Sergeant Stevens recently addressed Generals from 40 different nations gathered at Hill Air Force Base.

In addition to her US Military service, Jill recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Nursing program at Southern Utah University on a four-year leadership scholarship. Last summer, she placed 3rd in the Cinco De Mayo Sailboat Regatta in Mexico, and this summer, Jill was chosen one of four women for the “Women of Strength” featured in Muscle and Fitness Hers Magazine September/October 2007 issue. Additionally, Jill has been a fitness instructor for Gold’s Gym for several years, as well as a bread baker for Great Harvest. Possibly one of the most unusual adventures for Jill though, has been her unexpected experience in becoming Miss Utah 2007, and her participation in national competition in the Miss America Pageant in January 2008.

Victor Davis Hanson on McCain

I find some of McCain's rhetoric to be distasteful as well, but VDH clarifies a bit here:
Despite McCain’s 82-percent career ranking by the American Conservative Union, and his support for balanced budgets, an end to pork-barrel spending and earmarks, strong support for the war, and expressed regret over once supporting the Bush illegal immigration reform package, McCain was branded by the conservative media as a sellout and a near liberal. Not to mention that he was supposedly too old and hot-tempered to be the Republican nominee. The more McCain was discovered not to be a perfect conservative, the more he was accused of not even being a good one.

Even stranger, the various Republican candidates began invoking Ronald Reagan’s three-decade-old tenure as the new litmus test of the times — apparently to show how moderates like the wayward McCain fell far short of the Gipper’s true-blue conservatism.

Were conservatives supposed to forget that a maverick Reagan raised some taxes, signed an illegal-alien amnesty bill, expanded government, appointed centrist Supreme Court justices, advocated nuclear disarmament, sold arms to Iran, and pulled out of Lebanon — but to remember only that John McCain was not for the original Bush tax cuts or once supported the administration’s offer of a quasi-amnesty?
Victor Davis Hanson on GOP vs. McCain on National Review Online

McCain said WHAT????

In regards to the housing crisis, which was brought up at the debate a while ago -

Ho. Lee. Shit.

SO I'M WATCHING MCCAIN TALK ABOUT THE SUBPRIME CRISIS, and how there may be some "greedy people on Wall Street who need to go to jail."

But I heard a typically sad-toned NPR story on subprimes tonight, and despite their best efforts to evoke the Joads it was a story of people who "used their houses like ATMs," taking out home equity loan after home equity loan when they started with a subprime mortgage, only to wind up owing far more than their houses were worth and unable to make the payments. Boo hoo. Shouldn't there be a price for being an idiot? And -- despite not being on Wall Street -- a greedy idiot? Why does McCain want to bail these people out? Why does he want to put Wall Street people in jail?


Followed by this:

This quote from Senator McCain, "greedy people on Wall Street who need to go to jail." oozes with irony and/or hypocrisy (I don't know which fits best).

Google "Charles Keating Five" and you'll see why. Maybe more people (an army, maybe?) should start asking questions about what happened in the eighties. If McCain is "swiftboated" on this issue he has little defense, in my opinion.


Greedy people on Wall Street who need to go to jail, John? In that one sentence, you've proven that you don't know JACK SHIT about economics. You've proven that you're just another pandering shithead politician. And you've proven that you don't deserve to come within FIFTY FUCKING MILES of the Oval Office.

Just read through that entire Instapundit post. There is no housing crisis. There are a bunch of people, none of whom work on Wall Street, who thought they could work the system and then they found out they couldn't. Now they're whining about it.

John McCain is the WORST Republican we could ever put up for national election.

Just how messed up is the Republican Party?

Seriously, how fucked up is it? Because from where I'm sitting -

The actual conservative candidate called it quits due to lack of support, and

The candidate who has done the most to damage conservative causes is in the lead as of right now.

That's fucked up right there. That's not even worth saving if this is the case for the GOP. This is cause for alarm from every true conservative in the country. We have to decide whether to save this thing or give it up as lost and dead. And from where I sit, it's a 50-50% shot of success either way.

You guys rock

Seriously, I love you guys. I get home tonight, check my email, and I have three people sending me Dennis Leary mp3s.

You rock. No, you RAWK!

On a personal note, things just got even more hectic. Let's just say that life is proving interesting. The fact that I am posting this at 9:47 PM my time ought to tell you something. My job is changing again, but I've got no complaints. I suppose this is all part of what has to happen in order for me to get the hell out of here and back to civilization. However, this means that my time is even more tied up than it already was.

Don't worry, I'm not going to forget you guys. But I just won't be as regular for a little bit.

Anyways, I'm heading to bed. See you all tomorrow morning.

When even Jimmy Carter looks good by comparison

Overheard during a discussion about the Primaries with a military buddy of mine today at lunch:

"Man, if Clinton wins, it think we're going to start longing for the Carter years."

Ouch.

THANK YOU SONDRAK!

Have you ever had one of those days where you're walking around singing this song, and everyone is giving you weird looks but you don't give a shit because you're in THAT kind of a mood?

Yeah.

If someone wants to give me a birthday present that's months late, email me an .mp3 of that song.

Linky Love

A collection of links from the past few days that have made me sit up and go "Oh really?"

British Doctor on how to save money at the NHS: Don't treat the eldery or those with unhealthy lifestyles. In short, just let 'em die. Ah, the COMPASSION of government run health care!

Thanks to the Democrat American Communist Party, Al Jezeera had a front row seat to the State of the Union address! Yep, nothing shows your love for your country like allowing the number one terrorism news network into the US Capitol building and letting them sit right up front!

Kim du Toit links to an outstanding essay, "Over Our Dead Bodies". Well worth the read. And Mrs. du Toit deals with the topic of last week that caused such a furor in her comments.

Some half-baked nitwit wrote a news post bemoaning the state of men in their 20's in this country. Karol at Alarming News tells them off. And don't miss Rachel Lucas' takedown of an MSM writer who suggests ten things men shouldn't say to women. My take on it? American society has told it's young men for decades that they don't need to be men at all. At every turn, society at large sends the message that personal responsibility, courage, and dedication are not needed, and indeed should be discouraged. And now, the people responsible for sending that message are shocked, shocked that it has sunk in.

What to do? Hell, I don't know. I deal with folks one at a time.

The city of Berkeley, CA is passing legislation that would make it possible to ban military recruiters. Yes, I question their patriotism. I question it every day. They hate everything about America, while living in the comfort and protection that America provides them.

US OUT OF CALIFORNIA NOW! STOP THE IMPERIALISM!

Oh, and in other news, McCain is still a liberal RINO, the Clintons are still some of the most putrescent pieces of filth I've ever seen, and I'm enjoying watching the Dem Cong go after each other with knives and brass knuckles.

I got nuthin

Seriously. Last weekend was drill, and I was so damn busy that I didn't even check the news. The State of the Union speech is tonight, and I'm not going to watch it. I can't, even if I wanted to, because I've got no cable and there ain't crap for network TV down here in Hell. I've been hauling ass for a week and a half straight, and I'm ready to crash into bed.

So sorry for the lack of posting. I'll get around to it once I'm awake.

McCain has been on a roll...

Just to pile on:
McCain promises Amnesty... smears Mitt...
NYTimes brands the Maverick.
Maverick:
'An unbranded range animal, especially a calf that has become separated from its mother, traditionally considered the property of the first person who brands it'
John McCain is just a couple of chromosomes short of a Donkey...

For example, Mark Levin:

McCain-Feingold — the most brazen frontal assault on political speech since Buckley v. Valeo.

McCain-Kennedy — the most far-reaching amnesty program in American history.

McCain-Lieberman — the most onerous and intrusive attack on American industry — through reporting, regulating, and taxing Authority of greenhouse gases — in American history.

McCain-Kennedy-Edwards — the biggest boon to the trial bar since the tobacco settlement, under the rubric of a patients’ bill of rights.

McCain-Reimportantion of Drugs — a significant blow to pharmaceutical research and development, not to mention consumer safety...
...
McCain-ACLU — the unprecedented granting of due-process rights to unlawful enemy combatants...

And today McCain got confronted, and defended, having a well known open-borders advocate on his staff...

McCain & Lieberman are great Democrats.
