Thanks to Ace, I now have another stop on my daily blog tour…

…the fantastic S. Weasel.

First – on the minute chance that anyone is still checking in periodically, let me apologize for my protracted absence.  As Louis wrote, life sometimes gets in the way and in my case that has especially been so.  My mother suffered a major stroke a little less than a month ago.  The past few weeks have been spent focusing on her care and transitioning her back home.  Thankfully, she is recovering nicely.  With continued rehabilitation, time and prayers, we expect her to make a full recovery.  

That being said, even if this crisis hadn’t happened, I cannot confidently state that I would have (or for that matter – could have) amassed enough energy, concentration, heart and fervor to blog much anyway.  The simple truth is that I am discouraged, disheartened, distraught, disincentivized and pretty much any other “dis” word that you could think of by the course that our country is finding itself on.  This frame of mind is not conducive to being creative, articulate and inspired.  Regardless, I am compelled to force myself into a renewed habit of putting my thoughts to “paper” in the hope that maybe something good, productive, inspiring and insightful might come of it.  So here we go…

As it has been so long and so much has transpired since my last post, I thought it would be best to compartmentalize my thoughts into several different posts over the next few days.

Today’s Topic: Rush Limbaugh

Rush has been targeted by the left and the media (sorry – redundant) as an evil ignoramus who is hell bent on the destruction of America by publicly wishing Dear Leader his worst.  By taking Rush’s comments that he wants Obama to fail out of context, the smear campaign (orchestrated by no less than the White House itself) is in full effect.  This obfuscation serves two purposes.  First it diverts the attention of the unwashed, inherently headline focused, masses to this kerfuffle while the Obama Administration sells our country to the lowest bidding foreign power.  Second, it distracts the Conservative Movement and the Republican Party (unfortunately there is a major difference between the two these days) from focusing in on and combating the common enemy of Big-Government Liberalism, and redirects attention to a futile and counterproductive in-fight where such “principled” spokesmen as HRIC (Head RINO in Charge) Steele and Newt “Wow! Thanks for the food. Can I now bite your hand” Gingrich lambast Rush as being incendiary and out of bounds. (Warning – both links are to HuffPost… You may need hot shower and extreme eye scrub once you visit… At the very least, wipe your feet before coming back in 😉 ) 

Disclaimer – I am not a Ditto-head.  I used to be a devotee of the man, however I must admit that I have not paid much attention to him as of late (“late” being the past 10 years or so).  It is not that I think him irrelevant, it is that I personally do not care for his self-aggrandizement.  I perceive it as buffoonish.  That being said (Sorry – I use that phrase a lot), the man is correct.  Obama’s policies (which are as far left as this country has ever witnessed) need to fail.  For if they succeed, we will no longer enjoy the liberties and opportunities that this nation has provided to us.  Every aspect of Obama’s agenda – uncontrolled and misdirected spending and inconceivable tax hikes during a recession, horrific policies on abortion, ESCR, and other life issues, ad hoc / half-baked policies regarding Gitmo and the War on Terror that will put our nation in grave danger and the eminent nationalization of health care system – drives us further down the path of European Socialist Democracy.  I too hope that our Lecturer in Chief fails.  I pray that he fails MISERABLY.  His policies must not stand and his administration must not succeed.

You know all of this self-righteous indignation would be ironic if the hypocrisy wasn’t so blatant… Just a few months ago, it was considered patriotic to denigrate our President.  In fact, the vitriolic spew leveled at President Bush was championed as the pinnacle of free speech and political discourse.  An entire cottage industry of t-shirts, bumper-stickers, placards and the like was born.  Cafe Press and other similar sites were churning out orders for the “Somewhere in Texas a Village is Missing its Idiot”, “When Clinton Lied, No One Died” and who could ever forget the dandy: “Bush, Pull Out Like your Daddy Should Have!” sticker? The principle stoker of this fire, James “Cletus” Carville, moments before the first plane hit the World Trade Center, himself stated that he hoped Bush would fail.  These same idiots are now crying foul that the most consistent and principled voice of modern conservatism disagrees with the most Liberal President ever?!??  Not to fear though.  I am sure that the above the fold, front page exposé on the hypocrisy of this whole episode is imminent.  Can someone check the New York Times Sunday edition for me?

Tomorrow’s Topic: Spendulus!

Oh, the shame!

embarrasment

The time is at hand.  Hope and Change are readying their sweeps across America.  Meanwhile, in the hallowed halls of both houses of Congress, public servants are busy at work, eager to leave their mark on history whilst looking out for the best interests of you and I… their constituents.

No one, in this merry band of do-gooders, has his priorities quite as straight than the Maverick himself.

While many of our distinguished gentlemen and women are struggling with how the federal government can best guide America through these, dare I say, turbulent times, Johnny Mac has put “Country First” by proposing the “Professional Boxing Amendments Act of 2009.” 

The Professional Boxing Amendments Act would strengthen existing Federal boxing law by improving the basic health and safety standards for professional boxers, establishing a centralized medical registry to be used by local commissions to protect boxers, reducing the arbitrary practices of sanctioning organizations, and enhancing the uniformity and basic standards for professional boxing contracts. Most importantly, this legislation would establish a Federal regulatory entity to oversee professional boxing and set basic uniform standards for certain aspects of the sport.

Sign me up!  I can think of no greater pressing need than to allay the worries of Hollywood celebrities, convalescing with the highest paid Vegas whores ringside at the MGM, that there aren’t any shenanigans going on during their high end swat-fest.  But wait a second…  how will we pay for this “Federal regulatory entity”?  Senator “No Earmarks” has it all figured out…

As this measure continues through the legislative process, I fully expect Congress will ensure that funding offsets are provided to it and every other spending measure as we work to restore fiscal discipline to Washington in a bipartisan manner. I urge my colleagues to support this legislation.

Ugh.  Yes.  This is the man whom I gave my vote to.  Excuse me while I go throw up.

It has been awhile so I thought the best way to get the blog-o-matic running again would be to dump out a few quick (read – half baked) thoughts:

  • HRIC (Head RINO in Charge) GWB’s usurping of the failed UAW bailout, Al Franken’s election fixing in MN, Blago’s “appointment” of his buddy Burris (a man who fought to execute a beyond-teh-shadow-of-a-doubt innocent (albeit dirtbaggish) man to appear tough on crime whilst running for governor) and the upcoming Coronation of Sweet Princess Caroline (teh awesomest vid evah here) have all turned the US Senate into the equivalent of a Bugs Bunny Cartoon.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Bugs… just not sure that “Ballot Box Bunny” is the appropriate template for electing people to what has been up till now a vital branch of our Federal Government.
  • Government bailouts extending to Newspapers goes way beyond the absurd into the realm of obscene, intolerable and unconstitutional. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN!
  • Roseanne Barr is a fricking moron. (VDA forthcoming)
  • Favorite new blog here (WARNING – NSFW – Lot’s of profanity.)

Happy New Year.

I just got quoted on Malkin’s Blog.

I feel like a giddy little school girl…

Reality Unwound…

Through my burgeoning participation in “Social Media Activism” such as The DLO and other Blogs, Rebuild the Party and Twitter, I have had the opportunity to converse with some very interesting and intelligent, like-minded individuals; Men and Women that woke up on November 5th with an extreme sense of dread and remorse.  Dread for obvious reasons and remorse for not having done more to help prevent the inevitable pain we will encounter over the next, hopefully few, years.

One such individual is a Pastor from right here in San Antonio who blogs (and tweets) under the moniker “Reality Unwound”.

Where I tend to be more sardonic and angry, “RU” is often much more contemplative and reasoned.  On the Auto-Bailout failure (or should I say victory?) of last night, “RU” has been able to put to words that which I could not: a thankfullness for the bailout failing to pass the Senate, but with a sobering realization that there are going to be tough consequences ahead from the events of last night.  Indeed consequences that must be endured to ultimately fix what ailes us, but tough nonetheless.  Please read what he has to say, here.

Reality Unwound, welcome to the Blogroll.

RINO ALERT!

32 “Distinguished” Republican Congressmen voted in favor for the automotive bailout bill.  If your “representative” made the list, why don’t you give them a little shout out and tell them how you feel about their little Christmas Present to the UAW?

Time to get on the phone folks.  Call your Senators NOW and insist they support the planned Republican filibuster!

H/T Crystal Clear Conservative

<UPDATE>

Just say no to compromise.  The last time we “compromised” got a $700B crap sandwich.  No thank you.
