Got Your Six

I thought the video of Hollywood celebrities, with their backs turned to the camera, saying to Veterans, "I got your Six", was highly offensive.  The pretense that they even care is repulsive to me.

Tom Hanks, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alec Baldwin, et al remind me of the Bob Dylan line:

You got a lot of nerve, to say your are my friend.
When I was down, you just stood there grinning.
You got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend.
You just want to be on the side that's winning.
Where were these same people when those troops were first sent to the sandbox?  They were doing their level best to undermine victory.  And, they deserve nothing less than eternal shame for their hypocrisy.
Re-viewing the ad online (I won't link to it, 'cause it turns my stomach), I was encouraged to read this one comment posted below it...
To all you political celebrity hacks, no thanks! We neither trust you nor did we give you our SIX. Our six is earned in the crucible of service to The Constitution of the United States of America and forged with sweat, tears, blood and life which you have zero understanding of. Keep your hollow face saving bs campaign in hollywood. You don't deserve any part of six unless it's to kiss our American loving ass.

You wanna know who really has their six, and always has?
BLACKFIVE.  "Earned in the crucible of service."  Those guys are great.

Voting "Present" Didn't Cut It

A little less than four years ago, I cranked out my very first blogpost here.  The thrust of that initial piece was a committment to BE that to which I aspired herein.  That is, to be a blogger, speaking my mind, rather than just occupy a space in the innerwebs.

I'm not too disappointed in the effort or the results.

Conversely, I'm completely disappointed with the occupier of the White House, as I was back in January 2009 with the wave of Big Collectivism that washed these numbnuts into power.

My personal economy was in the toilet because of them, and I'd eventually lose my home.  I could endure the tough times, but I couldn't keep quiet about it.  I don't much mind it if folks don't like what I have to say, but I couldn't stomach the perception that silence might be equated with consent, or worse, assent.

So, I wrote my little blogposts.

A couple days ago, I was having my truck mechanic'd on, and was waiting with about half a dozen other folks in the teevee room.  I was busy with a textbook, while they struck up a conversation that dwelled largely on local politics.  I refrained from jumping in and steering it toward a national discussion.  And later, I about half-regretted not jumping in.  I didn't need to, though.

Everyone that knows me has a very fine sense of where I stand politically.  And many, if not most, of those have been alienated forever.  That, I do not regret.

"I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not." -Brainyquote attributes that to Kurt Cobain, though I thought it predated him.

Right now, I'm feeling a lot like Bill Whittle.  I think we've done right by history, we Tea Party folks and Right-minded bloggers, each in our own way.  I think that a few weeks from now, all of our oppositional pieces will have born fruit, some of those monsters will be swept back out with the tide, and we can set about the long task of restoring our Consitutional Republic.

And even winning this election won't be the end of our work, but just the first toehold on (hopefully) a permanent upswing.  We still have ultra-liberal universities poisoning minds with collectivist drivel, the (socialist) advocacy media, Hollywood's moonbattery, and a Supreme Court that thumbs its nose at the very Constitution it is supposed to preserve.

The good news, and what inspires us, is that we'll have a man who wants to DO the job of a President instead of just playing the role of President.

Blinky Loses

No question who won Debate #3.

If you DVR'd the debate like I did, go back and count (or try to) the number of times Obama blinks, or looks down, or looks away.  It's staggering.

Compare that to Gov. Romney.  Just on believability alone, which of the two are capable of looking the other, or for that matter the moderator, or for that matter the camera, or for that matter the people of this country, directly in the eye?

Also, am I the only one who heard Obama say, "weapons of mass-disruption"?

One of those two guys needs a teleprompter, and the other does not.

I really like Zo's idea for our unilateral arms reduction...Send Iran some of our nukes!

Please don't forget that it's almost as important to purge the Senate and retain the House, as it is to rid ourselves of the Corruptocrat-In-Chief.

And remember these folks on your ballot:

Virginia Foxx
Pat McCrory
Dan Forest

"If You've Got A Church, You Didn't Build That"

I'm rethinking my assessment of the recent debate.  If it's just my scorecard that counts, yes, the fight was a draw.  But, it appears that the voting public came away liking Gov. Romney more...and/or liking Obama less.  If he's winning over those folks, especially the fence-sitters, it matters none at all what I think of the performance.

Plus, if Obama's & Biden's antics, coupled with the very unpresidential-ness of having to rely on an immoderate moderator to bail him out of his own scandal, even those leaning toward Obama may be reconsidering their allegiance.

Want to see the most-likable candidate of the two?  I know there are a few people who haven't already seen this speech.  One of my favorite lines was, "In the spirit of Sesame Street, his (Obama's) speech tonight is brought to you by the letter 'O' and the number 16 Trillion."


Wednesday, October 17, 2012


Briefly, my unsolicited opinion on last night's debate:

I'd call it a draw.  Either side could justify calling it a win for their campaign.  As far as the campaign goes, Obama actually helped himself more.  But, his case was so much more in need of help.  So any progress for him looks golden.

The thing Romney supporters dread is Romney stubbing his toe.  Considering the fact that his views stem from his genuine goodness, such a hiccup could only originate in a semantical faux pas (says one thing, but means the opposite) and lets it go uncorrected, or gets pounced upon.  None of that, of course, happened.

What Romney did do, that I disliked right away, was ask Obama questions.  That gave scoundrel Obama an opportunity to claim more time and attention, regardless of his answers.  Hint to Romney camp: If you know the other guy is imminently capable of lying, and particularly good at it, give him as few opportunities as possible to do so.

What I hope to hear some criticism of today is Candy Crowley's questions that she picked for questioners to read.  Seriously?  What do you plan to do about gender inequity in the workplace?  Can it be true that that question beat out, say, Is Iran a legitimate threat to Israel?  Or perhaps, Who's policies would enhance America's standing & image in the rest of the world, yours or your opponent's?

Wasn't this debate supposed to center on foreign policy?

Asheville Loved Mitt

It's an hour-and-a-half drive to Asheville, and we left the Land of Livermush as quickly as we could.  But, we got there a little later than we'd hoped (4:30pm), although well before the advertised start time (5:30).  Parking nearby was nonexistent, as was anything resembling organized direction/information.  We found a parking garage and walked about a 1/4 mile to the Civic Center.

There were still folks coming in behind us...

But many, many more in front of us...

The Obamabots know their messiah has such a deplorable, indefensible record, of course they endorse "NoBoDy" as a viable 3rd candidate...

All in all, the opposition was small and meaningless...which is exactly representative of who they are.  Mostly, they were a minor irritation, but I wished I'd have thought to show some appreciation for this guy (at far right, with the RR Money sign).  Dude!  You're on the wrong side.  Money is a good thing.  It represents value, as in "You have this skill, or trade, or product, or service, and I have these folding American dollars...let's trade!'ll be good for both of us...and Governor Romney is YOUR GUY!"...

On the citizens' side of the barricade, everyone was just lovely.  We're smarter, more well-read, smell better, are much much nicer, and there's so many more of us.

The exit from the parking garage, after the event, was the worst challenge to our patience.  We sat in a line on level three for over an hour without moving.  There was only one exit lane, and a guy in a tee shirt with "SHERIFF" on it, took each driver's ticket and stuck it in the machine (which each driver could have done his/herself), and advised against incorrect change ("you'll get back dollar coins...oh, the horror!").  I asked numbnuts sheriff whyfor the delay, and he blamed Gov. Romney (I am NOT making this up) for not telling him sooner about the event.

No, you dipshit, the solution could have easily been: lock the guard-arm in the "up" position, and have a pocketful of change.  He could've just as rationally blamed George Bush.

There were 3 bumper stickers I saw & loved...sorry I didn't get pix of them to share:

"My dog created more shovel-ready jobs than Obama"


"What one thing has Obama done that we want four more years of?"

and my favorite, actually returning to the LoL:

"10 out of 10 idiots prefer Obama"

Ain't it the truth?

The Livermush Audience

In an English Compostion class in kollege, one of the first things I learned was to have and keep an idea of who my audience was.  That is, who did I expect, or want, to be reading what I would write.

I confess that the more I write, the fuzzier and undefined my imagined audience seems to become.

So, for this blog post, I'm at least going to say who I hope to reach...

To those who sit on the fence regarding elections, afraid of making a mistake.  To those family & friends who harbored some sense of "white guilt" for past sins, real or imagined, against black folks and wanted back in '08 to say you've atoned for those sins by pulling the lever for a black man.

To those who've ostracized me for my outspokenness, those who've engaged in character assasination rather than debate, and those who prefer coalition building over community.

To those friends and relatives who believe that celebrity and polish are even nearly as important as honesty and accountability.

I don't care if you like me or agree with me, my country is at the direst of crossroads.  Along one path, there's a chance for America.  It isn't guaranteed, but it's a chance.  Along the other path, everthing good is at risk.  It is just that simple.

Thanks Victory Girls for the above video.

Any of you out there who know me...

If you'll go to Dinesh D'Souza's movie 2016, and bring me your ticket stub, I'll refund you the money.  Whether you like it or not, and whether it affects your opinion or not, I'll reimburse you.  Or, if there isn't a theatre nearby, I'll arrange to have the DVD sent to your home!

Additionally, anyone who wants to join me for Atlas Shrugged Part II tomorrow night, I'll pay your way.

Another video for you, thanks to Sister Toldjah.  James O'Keefe is busting corruptocrats again.  This time it's actual coordinated voter fraud by Obama's supporters.  Don't think your vote matters?  Consider the fact that America's internal enemies are voting twice (or more).

And finally, to Mr. Eberle (hope I recall the spelling correctly), from UCLA (University of Cullowhee Left of Asheville): Thanks for teaching me something.
