Anybody Watch the Debate Last Night?

We didn’t either. We just read the recaps and the livebloggings.

It would appear that all of the not-Romneys, once again, refused to as much as scratch at the veneer of that smarmy, two-faced, opportunist son of a bitch Mittens, for reasons that will remain unclear to us until the day that we die. Instead, they got themselves involved in a free-for-all amongst themselves which, although amusing, really does nothing to advance what ought to be the ultimate goal, which is to make sure that Mittens ObamneyCare doesn’t end up as the nominee.

With the exception of Luap Nor, that doddering old crazy crank who loves himself some traitor Bradley Manning arse, there is no single candidate with less of a snowball’s chance in Hades of beating Hussein in the general election, most of all because there is hardly any difference between him and Hussein and every single useful attack on Prognazi Hussein that can’t easily be turned right back on Mittens himself. For fuck’s sakes, Mittens not only is in favor of individual mandates, he bloody well designed OgabeCare.

And refuses, to this day, to even consider that it might have been a mistake, even as health care in Taxatwoshits is going straight to bankruptcy hell.

Other than that, it appears that ABC managed to waste everybody’s time by focusing on the Great Contraceptive Crisis of 2012 as well as gay marriage, both of which we don’t give a shit about since none of the candidates will be in a position to do anything about since they’re not running for the position of G-d. None of them will have any legislative power as president, so who really gives a fuck whether or not they think that contraception bans fall under States’ Rights or not? Huh?

But of course that didn’t matter to ABC. Any question that keeps everybody from talking about the Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure, Barack Hussein Obama, is a good one in their book. So let’s not talk about the economy or our failed non-policy toward Iran and their nukes.

It’s like Europe after WWII: Whenever you visit Germany, don’t talk about the war.

We have an idea: In 2016, if the United States are still around, how about we let FOX exclusively handle the Democrat primary debates?

Stupid, you say? Well, it’d be stupid for the NSDWP to agree to it.

They’d be just as stupid as the GOP Party of Stupid.

Thatisall.

    Nope, didn’t watch it. I went out for Lobster with my parents instead. I’m not watching the one that’s on now either.

    I have my twitter feed going and I’m following it that way. I also didn’t know that Santorum was going to be in my old home town yesterday. I could have gone over and met Capt. Ed Morrissey and explained to him the error of his ways with regards to Obomney.

    I do have an idea for a write in candidate for tomorrow’s primary. Day By Day’s Damon Thomas. It’s time to put a competent cartoon character in the white house and get rid of the incompetent one we have now!

    I have a question: I’m genuinely baffled by the hate for Ron Paul. I mean, I don’t like the guy, but I’m not his target demographic. It seems to me that, economically at least, he squares up with the Tea Party pretty well. No new taxes, staunch 2nd amendment advocate, pro-life, anti-regulation, and that’s just a start. Paul would nix Obamacare, the EPA, the DOE, the Fed, the ATF, and God knows what else. He’d shrink government to the point where you’d barely be able to notice it. As far as I can see, the only point of disagreement between Paulites and Tea Partiers is Paul’s preference for military isolationism. Is there anything else over which the two groups disagree? I mean, based on what I know about you guys, it seems odd you’d prefer Romney to him.

    I’m not sold on the fact Ron Paul would NOT intervene in a conflict, or would NOT have Israel’s back were it to come to it. His foreign policy is pretty clear – don’t pick fights, let Congress declare war. What makes you all think he wouldn’t honor our treaties and alliances?

    You know that at the end of the day, state’s rights lies at the core of most of our political disagreement with the prognazis (love this new handle for ’em). Issue after issue boils down to their desire to destroy any other government than their conceptual tyrannic central government. Indeed they are terrified of the states because governors have very very rarely attempted the sort of power grabs that the left must use to get their agenda nurtured. Only a detached central government where we have physical separation between the people and their purported reps, can get away with usurpation of We The People’s rights. Notice the parallel between the conditions at the start of the Revolutionary War and now. A little bit of that situation and a little bit of the Wiemar Republic in the 1930s and you have the essentials to create a perfect storm of outrage, sufficient to motivate the people to revolt.

    Sir, I am in complete agreement, we do not need to be talking about Social Issues when the economy is going to hell and we have a deficit the size of Texas. Plus, as you say none of these guys are running for the position of god. This is also why the Republican Party has had issues with drawing voters to thier cause because they can’t just shut the hell up about Social Issues. Look at 2010 where Republicans won big in the House and Senate. They won over a majority of Americans because they focused on what actually matters: The economy and out of control Federal Spending. We need to stop worrying about whether Adam and Steve are getting married and get back to making sure that they and other Americans can actually find employment.

    If anyone but Romney wins the nomination they will have my full support and backing, especially if it’s Rick Perry. However, if Mittens Obamneycare wins the nomination then I’m going to vote for Gary Johnson(Libertarian), unless Ron decides to steal the nomination from him after he loses the Republican ticket. In that event I will likely vote Constitution Party.

    Three of the people I trust most in the matter of politics describe him thusly: “He’s nuts.” That pretty much wraps it up.

    Also, he’s a bit old, and I don’t think he really wants the presidency; I believe he’s in just for a spoiler. The majority of his supporters are loony tunes, too.

    I’m not a big fan of isolationism either but based on who the frontrunners for the Republican nomination for President I don’t see a whole lot of difference between them and Barack Obama.

    1. Mitt Romney- He created Romneycare in Massachussets which became the template for Obamacare. Wouldn’t vote for him in a million years based on that alone. I honestly don’t care that he once supported gay marriage but I don’t like the fact that he changed his mind in order to get elected.

    2. Rick Santorum- He talks a good fiscal conservative game but the facts just don’t add up. He voted for the biggest expansion in the Department Of Education in NCLB. He voted for the biggest increase in Medicare spending since Lyndon Baynes Johnson. I.E. The so called prescription drug bill. Also as far as Social Issues In my opinion he should have handled that Soldier’s question better. I don’t give a hoot what he thinks on the subject of gays serving openly in the military, but the least this little weasal could have done is say “Thank you for your service”. As an active duty Soldier myself I couldn’t give a damn what my Soldiers do in the privacy of thier own bedroom or who they choose to go home to at night. Can they perform thier Combat Medic duties under fire? Check. Do they conduct themselves in a professional manner? Check. Can they kill the enemy on any battlefield? DAMN RIGHT THEY CAN.

    3. Newt Gingrich- He might yet get my vote if he is the last man standing but I won’t support him in the primaries. He is a shrewd debater and knows how to get stuff done in Washington such as Welfare Reform. Personally I think he should have gotten rid of Welfare altogether but I understand it’s hard to overcome a veto so he had to compromise quite abit with Clinton. I don’t expect fiscal purity when your up against a democratic incumbant President. However, his years working as a lobbyist for Fannie Mae/ Freddie Mac,his support for an individual mandate and his support of Nancy Pelosi on Global Warming are big time deal breakers. But I’m a forgiving kinda guy and if he can prove to me he has learned from his mistakes he may yet get my vote.

    4. Rick Perry- My(now) pick in the republican primary. He has managed to do good things in Texas by reducing regulation and bringing jobs to Texas. If there is any serious candidate who can bring down the miles of red tape, reduce the tax burden on the American taxpayer and lower the deficit it is Rick Perry. Granted he has made his mistakes in the past but I like the way he admits his mistakes. He doesn’t do the usual “politician” thing where they say ” I’m sorry but i’m gonna do it again”. When Rick Perry makes a mistake you can be damned sure that he won’t make the same mistake twice.
    Library Czar says:

    That’s a good point. I really liked what I saw in the 2010 elections with the rise of the Tea Party movement and the rise of some great Senators such as Maro Rubio and Rand Paul. They are staunch defenders of the constitution and i can see a great future ahead of them in shaping the future of the Republican Party. If the Republican Party can get some more politicians like them and Jim Demint then some day I might not be Southern Libertarian anymore. However, if the Republican Party establishment continues to ignore them I will continue to give my vote to a 3rd party of my choosing even if that means the democrats win. Because if the Republican establishment coninues to act like Socialist light they don’t deserve my vote. I would also argue that they wouldn’t deserve your vote either but that is your choice and I will fully support you no matter what.

But from what I’ve learned, he’s not anti semitic. Obama is killing the American Spirit. Romney, Newt, Santorum will do the same thing. All I hear wrong with Paul seems like false accusations.

    I don’t agree with his views on Pvt Manning. But to me, it’s really an inconsequential matter. Even as president he won’t go on an massive spree of revealing classified information. He can’t, it’s illegal. I just can’t stomach the thought of Romney oSantorum, or even Newt. Paul is light years ahead of them in terms of small government. While I’m kind of iffy on his foreign policy, I by no means think he’ll be a pushover.

    Paul wants to withdraw us from NATO, because he believes Russia is no longer a threat. Big mistake.

    He thinks Iran should be trusted with nuclear weapons. He consistently yammers on about how Iran is surrounded by nukes and how their national security is threatened. Yeah. Right.

    He has no concept of the treaties we have or why we have them, or what the obligations under those treaties are.

    He has stated that he wants to close all U.S. bases overseas and bring U.S. troops home. He’s an idiot. We need at the very least logistical staging areas overseas, and we have an obligation under various treaties to protect our allies if they are attacked. We can’t do that without bases overseas. Can many of them be closed down? Yes, and they are already being shut down. We are drastically reducing our footstep in Europe, to the dismay of our NATO allies who have a much deeper understanding of the kind of threat that’s posed to them from Russia.

    I’m a vet, and about as libertarian as you can get, but I understand that it is wholly unrealistic and downright moronic to advocate what he does vis-a-vis defense and foreign policy.

    Additionally, that batshit crazy crank has for years accused CIA and other intelligence community members of all kinds of atrocities. As president, he will rely heavily on the IC and daily intel briefings should be the primary driver of foreign and military policies. How effective would he be as Commander-in-Chief if he doesn’t even trust his intelligence community? He doesn’t even have a clearance above SECRET, and yet he thinks he knows better than people in country and on the ground and people who spend their lives examining intel? Please! He’s an arrogant, stubborn coot.

    And don’t even GET me started on Manning! While his crime does not fall under the definition of “treason,” he’s certainly no hero, as Paul claims.

    An Open Letter to All Mormoms: Prepare Yourselves Emotionally and Mentally for What the Left is Going to Say About You Should Romney Be the Nominee

    Consider this an open letter to all Mormons out there who may come across it, warning you of what the political Left in this country is going to say about — and do to — you should Willard “Mittens” Romney become the Republican presidential nominee in 2012.

    You need to start bracing yourselves for the sustained, vicious attacks that the Left is going to direct at you if the Cocktail Party GOP establishment and the agenda-driven media succeed in pushing Romney to the nomination so that he stands in the way of Barack Obama’s re-election in November. From what I repeatedly see online and receive in email from people claiming to be Mormon, you are completely unprepared for the persecution that’s coming. Many of you seem to see the world “as it should be” and not the way the Left actually operates – with far too many Mormons thinking “his religion shouldn’t matter!” or “there’s nothing wrong with Mormonism to make fun of or attack!” or “this will be a campaign about the issues and the Left wouldn’t stoop to doing that!”.

    Whatever happens, you can never say that nobody tried to warn you while there was still time to prepare yourselves for the disaster that’s coming.

    The first thing you need to understand is that the political Left in America operates an Alinsky Death Star that it aims at those who stand in the way of Barack Obama’s re-election. The Left was exiled in the political wilderness for 30 years until Obama’s election; Leftists will not give up control of the country easily and will employ every attack in their arsenal to secure Obama a second term. There is no “stun” setting on the Alinsky Death Star — the one and only setting is “obliterate” and it’s being powered up to hit Salt Lake City with laser-focused persecution and ridicule you’ve clearly never imagined possible. Because Romney is not only a Mormon but served in key leadership positions in your church, Mormons and Mormonism will be targets in the all-out-war the Left wages to keep Obama in power this summer and fall. If you expect anything less than weaponized hate and distilled evil from the Left in everything it has planned for you and your church, you’re looking for decency in Alderaan places.

    Later this month, Harper Collins is publishing a new book titled The Real Romney by Michael Kranish and Scott Helman that will contain accounts from former Mormon women that depict both Romney himself and Mormonism at large as anti-woman. You can read an excerpt from the book in the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, in the article The Meaning of Mitt. From what I’ve seen, there are at least two anecdotes in the book that malign Mormonism as misogynist and depict Mormons such as Romney treating women as second-class citizens.

    One account was from a woman named Peggie Hayes who claims Romney came to her home and demanded she give her unborn baby up for adoption because the Mormon church leaders decided she was an unfit mother; Hayes told her interviewers that Romney threatened her with excommunication if she didn’t surrender her baby to the church. “Give up your son or give up God” and be condemned to Hell is what Hayes claims Romney threatened her. This was in 1983 while Romney served as a bishop in the Boston slate of the Mormon church.

    Another claim made against Romney by a female Mormon was written in the “Exponent II Journal”, which appears to have been a newsletter that a Mormon women’s group published; this unnamed woman maintains that Romney terrorized her while she was in the hospital faced with serious medical problems during an at-risk pregnancy. The woman was advised by doctors to have a medically-required abortion but Romney appeared as an agent of the Mormon church and demanded she carry the baby to term regardless of danger to her own life. The woman was horrified by Romney’s behavior and ultimately had the abortion on her doctor’s orders. Romney’s depicted as an alien, imposing, tyrant in the account.

    Here is where you, as Mormons, face an immense challenge. I’m sure reading the two paragraphs above has whipped many of you into a frenzy and you’re already ginning up hatemail to send me for bringing this up. This is what’s actually happened every single time I’ve ever drawn attention to what the Left has planned for Mormonism if Romney is the nominee. Mormons have a terrible habit of shooting the messenger and desperately trying to pretend that these attacks from the Left are not going to come. I’ve run this site for four years now and during that time I’ve seen many Mormons prove themselves to be very prickly when Mormonism is discussed in any way in the nation at large.

    Well, Willard “Mittens” Romney is running for president and is serving Mormonism on a platter for the Left and the agenda-driven media to savage…and he’s very foolishly doing it in an election year where the Left will stop at absolutely nothing to secure Barack Obama a second term. This is a perfect storm of disastrous proportions for those of you who prickle when someone outside your faith comments on Mormonism. If you’re going to get upset, leave nasty comments on this article, or send me hatemail for telling you the truth about what’s coming then I sincerely worry about your personal mental health when the Alinsky Death Star is fired up the day after Romney would be anointed the Republican nominee.

    The reason the Left has not hit Romney or Mormonism with its attacks — yet — is because the Left and agenda-driven media in this country WANT Barack Obama to run against not just Romney, but Mormonism too. A trial run — you can think of it as a Guerenica-type weapons test — of what’s to come occurred in California in 2008 when the Prop-8 assault on perceived gay rights’ was blamed on Mormonism in the national media; Mormons were depicted as evil zealots on a crusade against the rights of others and Mormonism was described by the media as an alien, controlling, fanaticism. The Left won’t admit it was actually Barack Obama’s black Democrat voters who passed Prop-8 — or report that if Mormons were powerful enough in California to be responsible for that discrimination against gays then John McCain should have won the golden state’s electoral votes. If you don’t understand this already, you will soon enough: the facts never matter when the Left needs the agenda-driven media to force a certain narrative to benefit Democrats.

    In 2012, with absolutely nothing worthwhile or positive accomplished during his presidency and no record of achievement to be proud of, the Left and agenda-driven media need villains for Obama to rail against. The “Hopeychange” that Obama entranced his acolytes and foot soldiers with in 2008 has expired and the only hope of motivating these people to re-elect him is to rev them up with hate. That hatred is going to be directed full force at Mormons and Mormonism.

    If you’re a Mormon who’s reading this, please hurry through the emotional stages of addressing this reality. For your own sake, don’t get stuck on “denial” and delude yourself into believing this isn’t going to happen. The day after Romney would be declared the nominee will come the opening salvos in the Left’s war on the Church of Mormon. You need to accept that, and skip over being angry at the people who are trying to warn you of what’s coming. Don’t for a minute think that Romney being Mormon is no different than John F. Kennedy being Catholic. That’s another delusion I’ve seen floated here and there by Mormons who optimistically put too much faith in the nonexistent decency of the Left.

    Some people had a problem with Kennedy being Catholic and running for President — that part is true. But that’s where the similarities between the 1960 election and the one we face in 2012 end. For starters, Kennedy was a Democrat and his challenger — Nixon — was a Republican; the media wanted Kennedy elected and chose not to persecute him for his Catholicism (which was, it should be noted, not as alien to voters at large in 1960 as Mormonism is to the majority of Americans in 2012). In the election at hand, almost everyone working in the news media is committed to seeing Barack Obama win a second term. Men like George Soros have invested billions of dollars in the “Obama brand” and will not allow him to be defeated without an all-out-war of a campaign. Obama needs a major distraction from his record of failure and ineptitude — and that distraction will be Mormonism.

    The attack on your religion is part of a two-pronged election strategy devised by the likes of David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett, and other Chicago operatives on the Obama campaign team. The other half of the strategy is to gin up the Occupy Wall Street crowds into class warfare mode and use them as goon squads to hammer home the image of Romney being a greedy, job-killing, Wall Street corporate raider who shuttered factories and cost union members their livelihoods when he was palling around with Ivan Bloesky and Michael Milken in the 1980s. Please take a look at the Occupy Wall Street rhetoric that the agenda-driven media has gleefully promoted and then appreciate the foreshadowing this gives of what the Left has planned for its assault on Romney as a corporate raider.

    Now, imagine the “Persecute Mormonism” second front the Left’s going to open up to unleash absolute Hell upon your church because the Left’s mission — with media complicity — will be to annihilate Romney and anyone who was ever connected to him in the Mormon church. You’ve heard of the phrase “bread and circuses” that was used in ancient Rome by those in power when they needed to control disgruntled mobs? “Occupy and persecute” is the Democrats’ 2012 equivalent and the only strategy they have to distract attention from Obama’s failed record and incite the disgruntled, unemployed, and desperate to take to the streets to re-elect Obama by demonizing his opponent in every way imaginable.

    If you don’t start preparing for the “occupy and persecute” update of 2008?s “hope and change” now, then you will only have yourself to blame when the Left’s Alinsky Death Star takes aim at Salt Lake City and the Occupy Wall Street class warfare gets coupled with a Leftist crusade against Mormonism.

    I am telling you this now so that you can prepare yourselves emotionally for it, but the Left is going to depict Mormons as anti-woman in order to alienate independent, non-religious female voters from Romney.

    The Left is going to claim that Mormons are racist and that Mormonism itself is evil because blacks were excluded from positions of authority until the 1970s. The fact this is not true does not matter. No matter how much you wish it’s not going to happen, the Left is going to scream RAAACIST! at every living Mormon because this is the number one Alinsky tactic that’s proved effective through the years: if the Left needs to destroy an opponent, the fastest way to accomplish that is to just call the person a RAAACIST! so that the person’s friends, neighbors, and natural supporters will be too scared of being called RAAACISTS! too that they abandon the person. Mormons at large are going to be called racists in the general election because Romney is running for president and the Left will believe this is the key to defeating him in the court of public opinion.

    The Left will claim that Mormons hate gays and that they are to blame for Prop-8 in California. As noted earlier, this worked so well for them in the media spin rooms in 2008 that they’re going to recycle it this summer too. The Left is planning on employing a trifecta against Romney and Mormonism: branding Mormons misogynists, racists, and homophobic bigots. You know this isn’t true. You prickle at the thought of being called these horrible names. But you need to accept the reality that Romney’s campaign is going to precipitate a nonstop barrage of accusations directed at YOU, as a Mormon, because the media’s agenda will be to help Obama by villainizing Mormonism. This is the Alinsky Method: to polarize and marginalize an opponent by calling those people the worst names the Left can think of and accusing that group of hating others based on their gender, race, or sexuality.

    The 2012 campaign was always guaranteed to be ugly because the economy’s so bad and Obama’s record in office is so unaccomplished. The two substantive things he achieved were the squandered trillion dollar bailout and Obamacare — neither of which Democrats can spin as a positive in November. That means instead of running on how marvelous a job Obama has done, the Left and its agenda-driven media propaganda wing needs to create a villain for Obama to run against and defeat in a class and culture war that distracts from the realities of his presidential failures. While it’s true that a villain could be created out of any of the Republican presidential candidates, with Romney the Left attains the ability to demonize Mormons and Mormonism as a second front in an Obama re-election strategy.

    I don’t believe that Romney can win the presidency because of his time as a corporate raider at Bain Capital alone; it is the wrong election cycle to be running a Wall Street caricature in a year when the public’s been ginned up to hate all things Wall Street. I know that the assault on Mormonism will be effective against Romney because the only way to make Obama seem like a safe and comfortable choice is to make his opponent seem as dangerous and alien as possible.

    You won’t like this — but you need to understand that Mormonism is indeed alien to most Americans. People do not learn about Mormonism in school. Mormon communities tend to be insulated, which means they’re quite cutoff from the rest of our culture. All of this enables the Left to define Mormonism with a narrative that will depict Mormons as hateful, backwards, weird, and dangerous.

    The Left intends to hammer Romney for eliminating jobs while at Bain Capital so the Occupy Wall Street crowds can gin up zeal to punish Romney for people’s economic suffering; simultaneously, the Left will alienate Romney from the public because of his Mormonism.

    “Occupy and Persecute”…that is what the two-front Obama re-election strategy would be if Willard “Mittens” Romney becomes the Republican presidential nominee for 2012.

    If you are a Mormon you need to accept this. Clearly, you will never like it and you most likely will never understand it since many in conservative ranks still seem to have no idea how the Left operates. But you need to understand that the Alinsky Death Star is being programmed into “occupy and persecute” mode in anticipation of Romney becoming the nominee. It is going to be the absolute worst thing that’s ever happened to the Church of Mormon. If you’re a Mormon, you’re going to be mocked with jokes on Jay Leno about “magic underwear”; you’re going to be called horrible names as the media runs coverage of Mormonism’s misogyny, racism, and homophobia; you’re going to be lumped in with Scientologists and various cults as “fringe” and “dangerous”.

    There is absolutely no way to stop any of this from happening. Being angry about it happening is not going to help you. Becoming prickly when people try to warn you to prepare yourselves for what’s ahead is just foolish.

    If Romney becomes the Republican nominee, this is what’s going to happen, and there is no avoiding that.

    So, go to your churches and start talking about all of this with the religious leaders in your branch or slate. Start coming up with a plan for a counter attack. Start thinking of ways to not just defend Mormonism but to show the public that Barack Obama is more alien to Americans and what this country stands for than any Mormon ever could be.

    Don’t just sit there, mad that I’m telling you the truth, or lash out at the messenger for giving you a heads-up on the “occupy and persecute” strategy that the Left’s been planning to use against Romney for four years now.

    If Romney’s the nominee and you are a Mormon, Democrats won’t just be gunning for him…but will be firing up the Alinsky Death Star to blast away at YOU, too.

    Pretending this isn’t going to happen is not an effective defense — for you, Romney, or the Church of Mormon.

    IS THIS WHY STEPHANOPOULOS RIPPED GOP CANDIDATES?

    ABC News commentator George Stephanopoulos has a previously undisclosed connection to President Obama: The two were part of a small group at Harvard University that met for a period of three years purportedly to promote involvement with U.S. community institutions.

    Participants at the research project, which took place between 1997 and 2000, include scores of individuals with ties to Obama, including several activists who were later appointed to Obama administration positions. Other participants were instrumental in promoting Obama’s political career.

    Indeed. Read the whole thing.

    As George Orwell said:

    “In so far as it hampers the British war effort, British pacifism is on the side of the Nazis and German pacifism, if it exists, is on the side of Britain and the USSR. Since pacifists have more freedom of action in countries where traces of democracy survive, pacifism can act more effectively against democracy than for it. Objectively the pacifist is pro-Nazi.”

    I’m NOT questioning Luap Nor’s patriotism, I have no doubts that he’s as much of an American patriot as they come, his strictly originalist view of the Constitution being one prime example, his distrust of the Federal government’s numerous betrayals of same being another, but at some point you have to ask yourself “qui bono?”

    Who benefits from his views? Our enemies or us?

    The United States of today is not the United States of 1776 where we had two oceans protecting us from the rest of the world. We need trip wires across the world to keep us ahead of things. Having served for 13 years as one such expendable trip wire, I think I know what I’m talking about.

    And that’s why we have to have a foot print across the globe. To keep us in the game, to keep us alert and in a position to act rather than react.

    I agree with him that it is not our job to mow out the shit that every nation on the planet leaves on the living room floor and I am exasperated by our new doctrine of having to be the saviors of the rest of mankind, cost be damned.

    My policy is more simple: Go to the mattresses for every single nation that upholds and reveres our principles and is allied with us, and I do mean seriously upholds them as in “willing to do all it takes” and, as to the rest: You leave us the fuck alone and we’ll offer the same courtesy to you. But fuck with us once and we’ll turn you into rubble.

    After that, we don’t give a shit, but we’ve put you on notice: You can either mend your ways once you’re done clearing out the rubble, or we’ll be back, only worse the next time.

    We’ll help you demolish the condemned buildings, but you’re going to have to do the rebuilding yourselves.

    Or else.

    Prognazis, Grigoriou Staphylococculous, the empire is on a roll with these. What we need now, is a candidate who will use epithets like these in their campaigning. The American electorate has been dumbed down so horrificly by the LSM that only big, honkin’ clue bat humor has sufficiently broad appeal to rally support. Talking about issues, other than lower taxes just makes the electorate’s eyes glaze over. That’s why Newt (heh, his name is Newt, heh) has no real shot. If you haven’t seen the “throw-away” movie Idiocracy, you should–you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll hang your head in despair, you’ll laugh some more, and you’ll have seen the state of our nation, now and for the immediate future, condensed into an 80+ min. comedy. It should absolutely be the training film for the GOP candidates and selection committees.

    Take off the kid gloves, put on the clown shoes and squirting boutonnière, get out there and abuse the F outta <0 and all the DNC scum. Leave none un-ripped. Make them a laughing stock. It worked for Reagan, in no small part, because it so demeaned Carter and then Mondale, they came to look like losers in every sense, even to the intensely ignorant masses. Oh, Zombie Reagan, where are you when we need you?!

    Thank you for the kind words and, as to the essence of what you’re saying, I have thought so myself for a long time. As a matter of fact, it was one of the very reasons I started out this site in the first place: Everybody thinks what we think and say it the way we do, among themselves that is, but nobody ever does so in public.

    It was equal parts frustration that nobody ever did and a suspicion that there might be others out there who felt the same way. The years would seem to have proven that I was right, even though neither I nor all of you proud LCs of the Empire will ever be invited to cocktail parties inside the Beltway. But, then again, I would never go to one if I were invited.

    I’d be more like to be the one crashing it and mooning the prim, timid, bourgeois twats while berating them in a profane flood of alliteration, sarcasm and grievous insult.

    Moreover, I have found, as I am sure that you all have too, that when you do approach a subject in public with more candor and a generous heaping helping of sarcastic humor, the audience proves remarkably receptive to it.

    To put it more bluntly: We Rotties aren’t quite as exclusive of a bunch as we might think. There are a lot like us out there who just haven’t realized their inner Rottie yet and are only waiting for somebody to show them the way. Not only my personal experiences tend to prove that, although I do try to attune my level of disrespect of “authority” to the sensitivity of the audience, as in “sometimes words like ‘twatmold’, ‘cuntmuffin’ and ‘dickwhistler’ might not be the best approach”, I also see it by the crowd’s reactions when somebody in the public eye goes out of character and delivers a flat out, honest zinger of an insult. The cheers when Newt, for instance, skewers the DNCMedia and their “moderators.”

    Don’t tell me that the public aren’t ready for that when you can’t hardly get them to stop laughing, cheering and clapping their hands. They’re not only ready, they’re bursting at the seams for somebody to finally quit trying to be Mr. Congeniality and instead say what we all really MEAN.

    Sure, it gives the RINO Establishment the vapors every single time, yet it never ever seems to hurt the person doing so in the eyes of the public.

    More and, as we’ve said about the Long War too many times to count: FASTER, please!

    You’re absolutely right. His more grandiose ambitions of shutting down the military, confiscating all the JEW GOLD! and building a 600′ tall stone wall all the way around the U.S. behind which we’ll finally live in peace, hidden from the Swiss Illuminati and the little brown people who won’t, by the way, hate us anymore since it’s all our own fault anyway, all of this is about as likely to happen as me growing a third nipple. I’m not concerned about that.

    I AM concerned about him making a laughing stock of the nation, the mental image of what remains of the Air Force being tasked with spraying the skies with vinegar to eliminate chem trails comes to mind, and, on a more serious note, him pardoning traitors, excuse me, “heroes” like Bradley Manning, cutting diplomatic ties with our allies in Israel because they’re all to blame anyway and what do we care what happens to them?, blocking Justice Department investigations into arseholes like Julian Assmange because he’s a “whistleblower” etc. etc. etc. The office of the president hasn’t the power of G-d, but it has a lot of powers that can cause us a lot of damage if wielded by a paranoid old crank. Just look at what they’ve been used for under Barack Hussein.

    That’s an image that sends chills, both good and bad, up my spine. She should know that she’s got a cousin G3rry over in Mogadishu on the Mississippi, scoped and ready to sing some harmony, if need be. Sho nuff hope we can laugh and vote our way out of this mess. Tanker, over at Mostly Cajun, doesn’t think so. He’s pretty smart, so we’d better be ready.

    One more thing to mention–the only reason I haven’t ever sought an LC designation is that I consider myself a citizen of only one realm–the U.S.A. and I bow only to God. I know the Rottie Realm doesn’t conflict with either in any way–it’s just a “thang” with me. So these TWANLOC are really backing me into a corner. Bad idea on their parts.

    Always good to know, brother. They sing beautifully solo, but they can truly belt out some terrific (in both meanings of the word) harmonies when they sing in chorus. “Hark the G3rry Angels Sing” indeed… Still pissed of that the Royal Danish Army apparently ditched them and went with those cheapo Canuck Dimaco poodle plinkers instead. Sure, they’re fine for hunting varmint, but nothing reaches out with authority like the brainchild of Messrs Heckler and Koch.

    Still, let us pray we’ll never need to find out. But, like you said, better to be prepared and find out you wasted your time than to be caught in the middle of incoming squatting over the latrine with your britches ’round your ankles.
