Obama mocks the handicapped
Sweetness & Light posts Obama: Stupid McCain Can’t Send Emails
McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes.Hey Barack Hussein Obama... you say you want to lead this country? Name one qualification you have that proves anything other then tying John McCain's shoes isn't "above your pay grade"?

They are the party of criminals.
The criticize the president for "not protecting America" when that's damn near all he's done for the past seven years. I guess San Fran Nan going to Syria and having her little sit-down with Boy Assad helped? What a fucking joke. The President has been opposed at every. Single. Fucking. Opportunity by the
Ace has a link to the Daily Kos petting zoo where they celebrate September 11th just a little differently than real Americans. But gosh, don't question their patriotism! Also a link showing just how badly the biased propaganda whores of the MSM are in the tank for the Donks.
The more I read, the more pissed off I get. The Left today is nothing more than howling, feces-flinging monkeys, unworthy of respect or any serious consideration. And I'm getting to the point right now where I've just flat out had enough. Enough of their lies. Enough of their smears. Enough of their childish actions, and enough of their bullshit. So I'm really, really, REALLY hoping that McCain/Palin win the ticket, and I'm really, really, REALLY hoping that the Left starts rioting.
Because I'm going to have a hickory axe handle, and a strong desire to use it.
How to win a war
I honestly believe that President Bush was saddled with political flunkies instead of Military Generals when we took office. The Clinton administration favored ass-kissers and paper-pushers over actual military thinking, and thus the people who were promoted to the higher positions were those that could kiss ass and push paper around instead of plan for wars. THAT is why we were losing in Iraq.
I respect the chain of command. I know that the Joint Chiefs and the Pentagon have some concerns. One is about the Army and Marine Corps and the impact of the war on them. And the second is about other contingencies and the lack of strategic response to those contingencies.
I want Dave to know that I want him to win. That’s the mission. He will have as much force as he needs for as long as he needs it.
When he feels he wants to make further reductions, he should only make those reductions based on the conditions in Iraq that he believes justify those reductions. These two concerns that we are discussing back here in Washington — about contingency operations and the needs of the Army and the Marine Corps — they are not your concerns. They are my concerns.
I do not want to change the strategy until the strategy has succeeded. I waited over three years for a successful strategy. And I’m not giving up on it prematurely. I am not reducing further unless you are convinced that we should reduce further.
But a good CinC realizes when things are working, and looks to fix them. For all of President Bush's faults, he wanted to win. No withdraw, not set an "end date", he wanted to WIN this war. And so he took the steps he needed to take.
Fault him on his domestic policies, but don't fault him for his leadership of the military.

So all I'm going to say about September 11th is one hopefully small paragraph.
When the planes hit the towers, my friend ended up waking me and the Ragin' Girlfriend (now the Ragin' Mrs.) with the news. We spent the rest of the day watching it on TV. I had been out of the Army for two years then, my obligation done, my turn at the wall over with. And yet, here I am again in uniform, the past three years of it on active duty. If September 11th had not happened, I would not have re-enlisted. But I'll be damned if my country calls and I don't answer.
I'm keeping this post non-political today. But you can expect a hellstorm tomorrow night. Yes, I am pissed.
Sarah Palin's views make me fear that the Republican party has finally lost its mind.Can you imagine what it must be like to PAY to sit in a classroom or lecture hall and listen to self-important self-obsessed self-aggrandizing clucks like this?
As for sex, the hypocrisy of her outing her pregnant daughter in front of millions of people, hard on the heels of her concealing her own pregnancy (her faith in abstinence applying, apparently, only to non-Palins), is nicely balanced by her hypocrisy in gushing with loving support of her teenage daughter after using a line-item veto to cut funding for a transitional home for teenage mothers in Alaska.
Her greatest hypocrisy is in her pretense that she is a woman. The Republican party's cynical calculation that because she has a womb and makes lots and lots of babies (and drives them to school! wow!) she speaks for the women of America, and will capture their hearts and their votes, has driven thousands of real women to take to their computers in outrage. She does not speak for women; she has no sympathy for the problems of other women, particularly working class women.

I am beginning to hate Modern America
No, we're trying to buy a new stove for the house that we're purchasing this month. We need a new stove, since there isn't one in the house. Fine. Dandy. Let's get a new stove. We're pretty simple in our needs:
Four burners. Not the inline, glass covered crapola, but just four plain coil burners.
An oven, preferably self cleaning.
And last but not least, it needs to last. Which means that the less electrical gadgetry on it, the better. But guess what? All the newer ovens today are push button ovens. Which means that you have a friggin' computer panel right in the middle of a huge metal appliance that experiences huge changes in temperature and humidity on a DAILY BASIS! Guess how long THAT damn thing will last in my house? Sure, if you're the type of person that cooks once a week, it'll last forever. But if you actually use the stove to, oh, I don't know, COOK YOUR MEALS EVERY DAY, it won't last longer than a couple of years before it turns into crap!
What the fuck was wrong with having knobs on your stove? And why can't I find a single damn new stove or oven WITH knobs instead of this push-button crap? What the hell is wrong with America? Are we so mentally deficient that we have to push a button instead of turning a knob to the correct temperature? What the hell?
Anyone else see the movie WALL-E? That's what I see America turning into. A bunch of fat fucking idiots who live by punching buttons in a chair. And dammit, I might just find an old cast-iron wood burning stove and put it in my kitchen, because this computerized, won't last five years crap is pissing me the hell off. Some things do not need a computer in them. A stove/oven is one of those things. Dear lord, if you put some of these modern pansy shitheads in a house from twenty years ago, they would starve to death. "What? No push button? No Microwave? Oh, whatever will I do?" Fucking choke to death on your microwavable cup of soup, you asscannon. I'll bet that most of Modern America wouldn't be able to start a fire without a gallon of gasoline and a Bic lighter.
Bah. I know that I'm going to end up the cranky old fart in the woods, waving a shotgun at anyone who dares come on his land. But you know what? The more I see of modern society, the more I think that it's not that cranky old coot who's crazy, it's everybody else.
Why the Big Three Auto Companies are dying
So you have a vehicle that would perform all the duties that a HUGE FUCKING AMOUNT of people in America need a vehicle to perform. Tear your eyes off of New York Fucking City, or Los Fucking Angeles, and take a look at the middle of the country. See all that space? People live there. People who own farms, or ranches, or just huge amounts of land that they need to work on. And they need a vehicle to work on those farms or ranches or acreage. This Jeep J8 would sell like hotcakes.
Unless you’re a foreign military, government, or humanitarian organization, you’re not getting your hands on the Jeep J8, a vehicle we think a number of Jeepers would be all over in about two seconds if it were to be offered in neighborhood dealerships. Available as a two-door pickup (above) or a four-door (like the civilian Wrangler Unlimited), the J8 goes on sale this month and was officially revealed at Euro Camp Jeep ‘08 in Germany.
Power comes from a 150-horse turbodiesel with 295 lb-ft of torque, with that juice going to all four wheels via a five-speed auto and Jeep’s Command-Trac 4WD. The J8’s built to be a workhorse, with a Dana 60 rear, leaf springs in back, upgraded brakes, and a revamped intake that lets it ford 30 inches of water and handle a sandstorm lasting up to five hours. Its max payload is 2,750 pounds, and it has a towing capacity of over 7,700 pounds. Because the J8’s duties will vary depending upon who’s placing the order, a variety of cargo and seating configurations are offered, as is left- or right-hand-drive. All this, and no, you can’t order one. Yes, that sucks.
But we can't buy them. Nope, that's for them special people, not us commoners.
And they wonder why they're losing money hand over fist? Fuck them. If they're that damn stupid, they deserve to go out of business.
South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler sharply attacked Sarah Palin today, saying John McCain had chosen a running mate "whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion."I read somewhere today speculation that the Democrats' internal polls show them in deep, deep trouble, maybe even checkmated, so long as Palin remains the GOP VP candidate.
They sure are going out whole hog to get her. It's almost like a high tech lynching, but they cannot find a tree strong enough to hold her.
Poor dumb bastards.

I'll bet my paycheck
The Americans are doing it again, mystifying the masses here with their weird, weird presidential elections.Feel the stupid, folks. "Spared" from the horror of a two party system by the wonderful Communist Party! Right, because the Chinese can vote for anyone they want, but there's only one name on the ticket!
To the Chinese, who are spared by the one-party Communist system of such complications as electoral colleges and party caucuses, the spectacle unfolding in the United States is not a very tempting advertisement for democracy.
Yet if the Chinese think the U.S. presidential campaign is chaotic and unseemly, there is good reason. Chinese coverage has not exactly highlighted the more flattering aspects of the American political process.Well gee, why wouldn't the ChiComs want to paint a flattering picture of American Politics? Maybe because if the Chinese found out that the rest of the world isn't forced to abort their second child, they might get a little ticked off?

Gee, two of the biggest no-talent, biased asscannons ever to disgrace a TV screen have finally been fired.
Unfortunately, they've hired David Gregory to replace them, showing that MSNBC still hasn't learned a damn thing. Hey NBC - it's not just that Olbermann and Matthews were idiots, it's that they're biased pieces of shit who were nothing more than mouthpieces for the DNC on the air. That turned off plenty of viewers. And if you expect David Gregory to change that, well, you're dumber than a mud fence.
But then, if you were smart, you wouldn't have allowed Olbermann and Matthews to continue this long.
How does Barack Hussein Obama really see the military?
“We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)So... they are slaughtering civilians like Ghengis Khan eh?
At a fancy '05 Manhattan fundraiser, Obama told the approving crowd that the Bush administration was using soldiers in Iraq as "cannon fodder."So... they are stupid? eh?
“You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon — supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq. And as a consequence, they didn’t have enough ammunition, they didn’t have enough humvees. They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it was for them to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief.” -- Barack Hussein ObamaSo... voting against funding the troops is working eh?
..."oftentimes our women servicemembers are more prone to post-traumatic stress disorder partly because they — there's a sad, but real, problem of sexual harassment and sexual abuse for women veterans, and that makes them much more prone, then, to have post-traumatic stress disorder." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D)So... when they aren't killing civilians they are molesting our service women who are stupid to join up as well? eh?
"If you talk to commanders on the ground there, they'll tell you, 'Instead of having another platoon, I'd rather have a couple of agricultural specialists." -- Barack Hussein Obama Jr.(D) who hasn't been "on the ground there" in Afghanistan
Because nothing inflicts casualties upon the Taliban like "agricultural specialists".

Just one problem with Obama’s little story.
