I have added a new link to my far-right sidebar (a little below my bio blurb). The link is to my son's blog, "I Like Ike". I have no input in S's blog; it's all his own. I do, however, pester and coax him to use proper grammar and punctuation.
S would love to have visitors to his little corner of the internet and he'd be simply giddy if kind people would leave him a comment.
I miss Carnac the Magnificent and I'd like to make my own Election 2008 predictions.
McCain will win. The DNC will cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. The RNC will once again be accused of "stealing" the election.
Obama will win. Sorta. We'll never really wade through the voter fraud. It'll make us long for the days of dangling chad.
At the YMCA tonight, I heard Lou Dobbs connect McCain to Palestinians. <cough> I also heard several preteen girls in the bathroom proclaiming their love for Obama. <gag> The most amazing item I heard, though, was that 29 of Mississippi's 82 counties have more voters registered than eligible adults. In all, there are 10% more voters registered than are eligible, according to the 2000 Census. George County Circuit Clerk Chad Welford says that the Census doesn't reflect the growth his county has experienced in the last eight years. According to Welford's logic, Mississippi has had a population boom of at least 10% since 2000. Right and I've got a bridge to sell you.
On the way home, H and I were talking about the voter fraud and H remarked that we've become a third world country. He's right. We're one of those pathetic nations most Americans can't find on a map and no one pays attention to except during an election when Jimmy Carter and the UN manage to show up to give their stamp of approval to the local dictator who hates liberty and calls for the destruction of America.
Yay, us! How far we've come.
I knew many of these Celebs Who Lean to the Right; others were unexpected. Not that I hold much stock in Hollywood, but it's a pleasant surprise to find out that not every actor is a Hugo Chavez-kissing loon.
I rarely mention the insanity of "The View". Truly, if I blogged all of their crazy talk, I'd never get a chance to blog anything else. Whoopi Goldberg's recent comment to John Mccain, however, requires a response.
Whoopi: Can you just, and I don't want to misinterpret what you're saying, did you say you wanted strict Constitutionalists because that, that...
McCain: No I want people who'll interpret the Constitution of the United States the way our Founding Fathers envisioned for them to do...
Whoopi: Should I be worried about being a slave, returned to slavery, because certain things happened [in] the Constitution that you had to change.
I've heard tell that Whoopi was homeschooled. However she was educated, she is a poor reflection upon her teacher. The United States Constitution never made anyone a slave.
I would expect every American to have a basic grasp of the Constitution; apparently, Whoopi does not.
It boggles my mind that people voice their opinions on national politics and (sometimes) vote, yet lack an elementary understanding of the foundation of their nation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
With a bit more googling, she would find out that similar phrasing in the Massachusetts Constitution of 1780 was used sucessfully in Brom and Bett vs. Ashley in 1790 to win freedom for Mum Bett, later known as Elizabeth Freeman.
She would also discover that it was the Dred Scott decision of the U. S. Supreme Court which denied all Americans freedom. Had the U.S. Supreme Court been made of strict Constitutionists in 1857, we might have been spared the death and destruction of the Civil War.
And while we're on the topic of slavery and the Civil War, the Civil War was fought to preserve the Union - not to end slavery. The South seceded because they did not want States' Rights to be infringed upon. My dear Mr. Lincoln, founder of the Republican Party, hated slavery, but loved the Union more. That is why he waited until January of 1863 to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, which only freed slaves in states not currently under Union control. It was a late in the game bid to create havoc in the Confederacy. Quite smart, he was.
A modern example of encroachment upon States' Rights is the unconstitutional Federal Department of Education. Education falls under the jurisdiction of each state, not the Federal Government.
Finally, I think if Whoopi were to do some googling, she would find that she cannot be returned to slavery. She's never been a slave, just played one.
Today, H sent me the link to this video:
Funniest thing I've seen from Hollywood in a while.
Watching the RNC online with D. I used the Live Stream from FoxNews - no pesky, noisy reporters and "experts".
D really liked Fred Thompson's speech - and so did I. Here's the video, compliments of C-SPAN. I found it by clicking on the ad on my sidebar (hint, hint).
Anyone else watching the RNC?
Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana and son of Indian immigrants.
"You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent." - Joseph Biden
"We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us. Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.
"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media to respect our daughter and Levi's privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates." - Sarah Palin
"Look, I got [sic] two daughters -- 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." - Barack Obama
I thought we had moved beyond men threatening and attempting to subjugate women. Nope. Riotous crowds clamoring around a tiny woman and calling for her murder can still be found on the streets of America - at the Democratic National Convention.
"America is not better than everybody else, America IS everybody else"
I've always known that America is the greatest nation on Earth. I believe America is so great because she is an amalgamation of determined people from many lands, people willing to work hard and make sacrifices in their quest to create a good life for themselves and their descendents. For over two hundred years, America has been a destination full of struggles, but also full of hope. She has endured many sorrows, but has relished in many triumphs.
America is not always right and often she stumbles. Though she bears the scars of her past sins, she continually strives towards liberty and freedom and honor for all mankind.
Some people say America was once great, as though she were a tarnished star. Some people condemn her as a sullied lady. Some people abhor her as a malevolent hag full of hate and devoid of promise. I say America is great and I think it is a steadfast and patriotic love and a firm belief in America's continuing greatness that separates Conservatives from Liberals, Republicans from Democrats.
