Correlations

It seems that “Leisure Suit Larry” and his “reelection” have stirred the Iranian people to take to the streets. You will pardon me if I feel more than obliged to interject the correlations between that “country” and ours into my “reporting” of this incident.. The strange similarities will be placed within parenthesis and sarcasm should be duly noted and giggled at appropriately..

In “Iran rules out annulment, Tehran crowds gather” (Reuters) we are told of the saga of Mister “I-Need-A-New-Job” and his alleged reelection. Here we read that “Iran’s top legislative body ruled out annulling a disputed presidential poll (Iranian polls seem to be similar to America’s polls related to the Obama “job performance”..) that has prompted the biggest street protests since the 1979 Iranian Revolution.” (Which was enabled by our own little poorly dressed terrorist/pathetic liberal, Dhimmi Carter.)

“Editors note: Reuter’s coverage is now subject to an Iranian ban on foreign media leaving the office to report, film or take pictures in Tehran.” (Here in America, our “impartial” media gets around this road block by setting up shop inside the White House and allowing the Obamazombies to take control of their “impartial” “product”..) (On 06/24/09, ABC “News” will allow their “impartial” reporting to be an idiotic infomercial for the “health care hysteria/fascist takeover volume four” which will be broadcast from the Offal Office..)

“The 12 man Guardian Council said it was ready to re-tally votes in the poll, in which (Doofus) was declared the runaway winner.” (In America, the “re-tally” dog and pony show is only required when the liberals lose. The same voting machines in the same areas utilized by the same numskull voters were apparently okie dokey in 2008 as opposed to 2000 and 2004 when “disenfranchisement” reigned.. Since the “runaway winner” was the “historic” liberal, it was full speed ahead..)

“The powerful Council rejected reformist calls to annul Friday’s election which set off quick moving political turmoil.” (I wonder if this isn’t really about the fact that there are substantial questions about Mahmoud’s birth certificate and his college transcripts??) (About all of this Iranian “turmoil”, Obama has said that “it would not be helpful if the United States was seen by the world as “meddling” in the issue..” “Obama: Iran supreme leader worried about election” (Breitbart). Just as one example of the Obama “One Way Street of Diplomacy”, when it comes to Israel and their fight against and the terrorist troublemakers that surround them, Obama has no qualms whatsoever about “meddling” on behalf of those “troublemakers” until his heart of darkness is content..)

“Obama, who has sought to engage Iran and has asked leadership to “unclench its fist” (Obama and his socialist stooges haven’t yet “unclenched their fist” from the neck of capitalism..) said he was deeply troubled by the post-election violence..” (I will guess that he wasn’t too “deeply troubled” by the violence after some basketball team won a “world championship” in Los Angeles.. This “violence” is more “deeply troubling” due to it being absolutely unnecessary and apparently somehow excusable because of the “ethnicity” of the rioters/revelers.. The Iranians are doing what the apathetic Americans, who were “disenfranchised” by the ACORN illegality and the inner city “vote as often as you can” “fairness” factor, didn’t do in November of 2008..) (Please note as well, 375,000 people showed up the next night in the “City of Champions” to celebrate the Stanley Cup victory of the Pittsburgh Penguins.. No “knuckleheads”, no cars turned over, no fires.. Oh well, different sport, different crowd, I guess..)

One of the Iranian puppets (Here; “progressive puppets”) said to a hastily assembled “crowd” of ticking Ah-mad-inejad “supporters”, “Tehran, where Mousavi won the most votes, did not represent all of Iran..” (The inner cities and the leftist/elitist enclaves DEFINITELY did not represent all of America, yet “that one over there” managed to win..)

“Further protests, especially if they were on the same scale as Monday’s would be a direct challenge to the authorities who have kept a tight grip on dissent..” (This is the equivalent of the “Tea Parties” in relation to the Bolshevik brown shirts and their Obama disinformation campaign where “dissent” with the prevailing liberal caliphate is considered to be “acrimonious” among other unsavory descriptors..)

This dissent comes from the fact that “Ahmadinejad’s truculent foreign policy and populist economics are shaping Iran’s future..” (Dissent here stems from Obama’s passive/flaccid foreign policy and his unpopular economics of socialism which are shaping America’s future demise..)

“Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, supposedly above the political fray, has favored..” (In America, the “Supreme Leader” is personally responsible for the “political fray”..)

An Iranian “Intelligence Minister” Mohseni-Ejel (probably as useful as an Obama “intelligence minister”, or would that be yet another “Czar”?) said that “one wanted to achieve its goal through explosions and terror” (talk about the “pot calling the kettle black”, an Iranian whining about “explosions and terror”?) because allegedly “20 explosive consignments were discovered. They were supported from outside the country.” (This coming from the “Iraqi insurgent enablers” of Iran? The worms who have endorsed and bankrolled the IED’s and the terrorists who plague Iraq?? I certainly HOPE that this did come from “outside the country”. However, I don’t believe this to be true because if it were actually so, it would have been much more “effective”. The exception to that theory would have been if Obama and any of his cohorts had been involved. Think back to Carter’s “Operation Eagle Claw” as your liberal template..)

“Illustrating Iran’s sensitivity to world opinion, authorities on Tuesday banned foreign journalists from leaving their offices to cover the protest.” (In America, this will never be a concern for Obama. The duplicitous marionettes of the media would simply look the other way or “report” about something as “newsworthy” as what a fashion maven Michelle is or what the new Obama dog is named.. The disputatious disagree-ers here in America are categorized as “the minority” or as “acrimonious” when they are condescendingly discussed at all..) (Iran is “sensitive to world opinion?? They are as “sensitive” as North Korea is.. This is just another opportunity to enforce the Obama-esque type of “control” that America has rolled over and allowed..)

“A spokesman for the Guardian Council, which groups clerics and Islamic law experts as a constitutional watchdogs..” (Under Obama, Muslim “clerics and Islamic law experts” serve as “constitutional watchdogs” as well.. They are led by the Supreme Court, which is eagerly awaiting the arrival of “Shemp” Sotomayer..)

“Police have accused “bandits” of setting buses on fire, breaking windows of banks and other buildings and damaging public property..” (The Iranian “officials” just haven’t grasped that this is how everyone in the world “celebrates” the professional basketball championships.. The only other acceptable exceptions for this type of felonious behavior are the followers of Al $harpton.. “Dear Leader” also said, “It would be wrong for me to be silent on what we’ve seen on television that last few days”. No, he wasn’t talking about the idiotic basketball riots..)

The correlations between the Obama government and the Iranian situation were to coincidental and too copious to let pass without comment.. The similarities between the two certainly do not end there and my bringing this information out of the shadows and into the light of day does not end there either..

  1. Larry, you are so “RIGHT on”! You keep hitting the nail on the LEFT HEAD–pun intended–I don’t want to denigrate us RIGHT-Wingers!

    You are more savage than Michael Savage himself–and rightfully so. He could learn a lot from your excoriating use of the English language that makes it “crystal clear”!

    Oh, if other commentators were as courageous as you!

  2. BOYCOTT…ABC!!!!
    I don’t watch them anyway….but I’m sure we all know folks that do. We need to find out who the sponsors of this infomercial are and BOYCOTT them as well.
    Stitch is right….we control the money, let’s keep it that way.
    Loved your lingo Larry…not too many can make me laugh now these days.

    G’day Larry and Family,

    After a few days ‘off net’, I am finally back with the family and ready to put forward my two-penneth worth. I am the victim of our modern throwaway society, in that having my computer ‘die’ on me, went to my good friend’s computer shop to have the problem diagnosed and returned to active duty. Turns out to be that the ‘motherboard’ had failed and of course, everything else died with it. Over five years old with no problems to speak of. But, as ‘time is a thief’, I find that in replacing the motherboard, I was also up for a new CPU, new RAM and other fiddly bits to make it go again. So, if the US is anything like Thailand and the majority of computer purchases are from a shop that specialises in putting all the pieces together, rather than a come-as-it-is brand-name and your computer is a little aged, then you will be up for a little surprise (dollar wise). New RAM and CPUs are not compatible with older model mainboards. Luckily, the prices of computer components have fallen dramatically over the last five years.

    Anyway, here we are, looking at the elections in Iran and Obama’s reaction to a situation that he is all too familiar with – a gerrymandered election. It is all part of a plan and I would not put my trust in anything that the Obama presidency puts out (there is no government as such, as everything and anything that he puts forward, is accepted out of hand). An article from Arutz Sheva ( http://www.israelnationalnews.com/ ) “The Inevitable Iranian Crisis” Robert D. Onley, states: “Today, while the Iranian populace collectively and legitimately holds its breath with regard to their nation’s electoral future, the depressing reality at the international level is that the Israeli-Iranian nuclear crisis will continue to deteriorate, and rapidly so.” So, Obama may pontificate all he likes to his ‘captured American and international audience’ but his words mean absolutely nought to those Iranian’s looking for freedom and a new direction, as well as to those Israelis who ‘hope upon hope’ for a peaceful settlement of its wars (and rumours of wars) with the Arab/Persian/Islamic world. The latter may be nigh on impossible to achieve. Just as there are hawks within the makeup of Israel, there is, sad to say, a corresponding number of doves, left-wingers, socialists, pinkos and fellow travellers, who luckily at the moment, do not hold the sway of power.

    Looking further into what Larry has written, we must be pragmatic in our outlook as to the true situation that exists for Israelis. We have seen that bumbling fool Carter make another visit to the Gaza Strip, we have also seen Obama’s reactions/ultimatums to Israel’s right to expansion and ultimately, self-determination. America is drifting further away from Israel than it has ever been since Truman times. So, how will Israel react? there is only one sensible way and that is to “Attack in every direction with maximum force.” Those who think it is simply a half day operation to knock out Iran’s nuclear sites, better rethink the problem. Just as in ‘Desert Storm’, where there were US Special Forces and Israeli Agents highlighting (laser designating) the most important targets in the middle of Baghdad for the initial air assault, you can rest assured that there are Israeli agents (and others) in Teheran at the moment as well as staking out the Iranian defensive apparatus the length and breadth of the country. Egypt and Syria must be prime targets and to a lesser degree, The Lebanon and Jordan will assuredly be closely monitored. Sadly (spelt C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y), the air support (electronic counter measures) provided by the US during the six-day war (Israel – Egypt) which shut down all electronic communications, will be missing. If and when the Israelis decide to attack, there is no denying that it is going to be a hard nut to crack. To say: If only America could apply political pressure coupled with the threat of military action on the side of Israel, is an overused excuse employed by NATO and European nations to allow America to foot the bill and to take military casualties whilst they set back and do nothing – Have a look which countries are now lining up for the oil contracts with Iraq – To me, the US has the right to shut down any export of oil from Iraq’s except to pay for necessities, the rest going as reparation and payments for US casualties and monetary costs incurred during the war. The US is too kind.

    But, things have changed. No longer does America have a seemingly endless supply of money and war/non-war materials to do anything, anywhere they like. America used to have money. Where has it gone? Discounting the latest financial shemozzle and the proliferation in bail outs (with no money) and understanding that now America has no gold reserve to back up the currency within the free market, I wonder .. Where did all the money go? I also wonder, do Americans, like of the NLTZ family realise test how much money America has spent and is spending on other nations today? I would like to give an account of my own views and observations, but that is for another day.

    Off Subject (just a litle bit):

    Almost back to normal here … As normal as things can be. On the lookout for a new ‘Cobber’ and will have ‘Jillie’ home from the dog hospital tomorrow. If I hadn’t taken her to the vet when I did, the lovely Jillie would have croaked. A number of viruses plus a low white blood count etc, the cause of which, hopefully, have been arrested and with a little bit of further medication, Bob’s your uncle.

    triviaman,

    Thank you for those very kind words.

    On the “courageous” front, it’s easy to be “out there” when you are as anonymous as I am..

    If I were getting the notice that I wish I were getting, if I had the subscription base that others, including Dr. Savage have, the “courageous” moniker might fit me a bit better.

    My vow to you is: Were that time to come and I were to somehow end up “out there” nationally, I would not change a single syllable. Right is right and left is wrong. Period.

    Thank you again for making my day.

    Larry

    Rayne,

    We control the money until Obama says that we have to hand it over. The other option is for the leftists to devalue our money to the point that it isn’t worth the paper that it is printed on. Neither option is palatable..

    Socialism..

    THAT is why 2010 is of the utmost importance!!

    We just need to remove them from one of the two Houses. If not, there will be another TWO YEARS of liberal socialist government exactly like the two years before it running unimpeeded across the country.

    No one should wait until it is too late. Nonsensical talk of “overthrows” and the like are bandied about by people who usually wouldn’t even show up at a rally protesting the liberal imposition of socialism. It is not logical to deduce that these folks are going to become “hands on” after sitting on the sidelines for years.. Jibberish.

    Why extend the physical effort for such an undertaking? Just show up in November 2010 and “DO THE RIGHT THING”.. The apathetic placed these liberals in office in 2008, if they show up in 2010 we may be able to staunch the arterial flow.

    Scared? Time to get to work..

    Any slogans for the 2010 run? Does anyone need such things to get motivated? OK, here is my two suggestions:

    2010: DO THE RIGHT THING..

    Think 2010: never give up, never give in, and never again..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  6. noleftturnz

    Arthur,

    My mother and her mother would always say, one after another, “Bob’s your uncle” then the other would retort, “Robert’s your mother’s brother..”

    Thanks for the reminder of a time when the world was a much better place..

    All the best, cobber.

    Larry

  7. Larry – outstanding once again!

    I’m with you but, just hope it’s not too late to undo 2 years worth of liberal, out-of-control spending in 2010. Wonder how many czars there will be by then?

    2010: The RIGHT change!

    Arthur – glad to hear you and the misses are on the mend and getting back to normal – or close to it. And so happy about Jillie too.

  8. Another great article Larry!

    This is off topic, but I read this article yesterday at Human Events and it contains something that I have not heard on any of the conservative sites I visit:

    http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=32281

    The comment that I refer to is:

    “On January 6, 2009, a bill was submitted in Congress to repeal the XXII Amendment. We may yet see a “President-for-life” if the new Progressives have their way.”

    Has anyone in the Family heard about this? My husband listens to Jay Sekulow and doesn’t recall him mentioning it either. If this is true and this bill is passed, we can truly kiss the U.S. goodbye.

  9. Well done Larry!

    The “Comparisons” were great and I especially love the differnet names you manage to come up with for “Lobotama” and “Ahamanutjob”. “Free Elections” in Iran?? Not likely. Honest elections in America?? Equally unlikely. It still amazes me that anyone actually believes a word our fearless leader (may he live forever) has to say. I keep wondering how long it will be before he sets up a “statue in the plain” and at the sound of the flute, sackbut, etc., we all fall down and “worship”? I am developing a sense of “awe” and”wonderment” as I watch this whole scenario unfold as previously recorded. It is nice to know that “nothing is a surprise to God”.
    In the words of Adrian Rogers,
    “Prophecy is Pre-Recorded History”.
    Keep On…
    Blessings,
    Jeff

  10. noleftturnz

    Jeff,

    Outstanding..”sackbut”.. Reminds me of the Coen Brothers remake of “The Ladykillers”..

    It will either be a “statue in the plain” or it will be “mandatory” morning exercises and daily readings from the “Little Red Book”/Democratic platform..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  11. The man is a mahogany “merkel” . He is loosing sleep over the defecit? Come on BIGO, if I am loosing sleep over a decision I made at work. #1. It wasn’t thought out well (his wasn’t). #2. It’s probably the wrong decision (his was). #3. I would(should) probably be fired or placed on notice. (he should be). #4. It will bite me in the rear down the road (Hopefully it will). While one hand (Obama) steers the nation towards the abyss, the other hand(s) (JB/Nonsensy Pisslostit) are keeping them selves stupid. Biden’s (I assume serious, but you can’t take most things he says seriously) comment “everyone guessed wrong…”. If the expected outcome(s) of important decision(s) are based on guesses, well (excuse me I either have to throw up or put my fist through a wall ) I’ve had enough of these idiots and the damage they are doing. Even the demiots lose their majority in 2010 and OBAMAWA loses in 2012, it will take a lot of time & effort to undue what the dude dun do. ARGH!! in South Carolina.

  12. Kurt,

    Absolutely right.

    That is exactly how things go for the “rest of us” in the private sector..

    Wait, there is no private sector any longer..the government owns everything.

    So if we are all like the unions, we are protected for life regardless of the “damage” we cause or how little actual work we are expected to perform.

    So if we are like the Obama government, we are protected for life regardless of the “damage” we cause or how little actual work we are expected to perform.

    If we are in the NEA or perhaps a liberal “professor”, we are protected for life regardless of the “damage” that we cause or how little work we are expected to perform..

    Is there a pattern there??

    Nahhhhhhhhhhh..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  13. “Boycott ABC”? Heck, ever since I got cable I don’t watch the alphabet soup networks. If I want news its either Fox, BBC or the Internet. Anyone whom watches ABC, CBS or NBC news is either an Obamazombie or an idiot.

    As an aside, further proof of the lamestream media’s slobbering love affair with all things Obama: God help us, Michelle (Ma Belle) Obama made Maxim Magazine’s Hot 100 for 2009. She beat out Marisa Tomei and the blonde agent girl from ‘Chuck’ to make it to number 93, but come on! Even men’s magazines are no longer safe from the politicization of everything. Of course the Ebony Eucarist is the cover model for Newsweek and Rolling Stone at least once a month.

    You guys ought to click over to Glenn Beck’s site, and check out the letter written by one of his viewers. She expresses what all of us here are feeling: the increasing belief that there is nobody in Washington whom listens to us, and that we the citizens are becoming disenfranchised subjects of a government that no longer cares what we think. In less than two years we may see here what the people of Iran are seeing now, the voice of the people whom yearn for real change and hope, and not spare change and hype, being overridden by a government that thinks it knows better.

  14. Larry,

    Well, I’m finally done “giggling” after the first read. You’ve outclassed Coulter with this one, son, in sarcastic wit and words. And as always in truth.

    I don’t know whether Ahmadinejad was snickering to hard when Obama was degrading America or whether he couldn’t get his mouth open because of the vacuum created by Obama’s lips on his ass. In either case Obama’s Iranian “I won” counterpart faki(e)r missed the chance to ask Obama for the assistance of ACORN in his election.

    Talk about a dead voter, just look at all the mass graves. Which in liberal polically correct language would be; Concentrated burial sites.

  15. Joe,

    Thanks as always for your kind words.

    Ann is in a class by herself though. Even Mark Steyn falls short of Ann and I think Mark is great.

    I gave some thought to your comment and with the liberal inner city propensity towards dead voting tabulations, I thought that they might be considered “concentrated constituents”..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  16. Russia and China are in economic “talks”…
    North Korea is defiantly testing nukes…
    Iran is openly shooting the opposition…
    Chavez is eliminating “troublesome” military leaders…
    Obama is appointing Car Czars, Pay Czars, Internet Czars…

    Change?

    You betcha’

    -beanhead

  17. I think maybe more americans need to get off their butts and hit the streets. God knows this country is headed down the tubes. The modern liberal is an FDR progressive(communist) with a different title. The idiot in chief has spent more in his first 5 months in office than all other presidents combined. It will only get worse. The way to vote is against the incumbent.SIASL

  18. Larry, your comment at 10:08 PM made me think that my father–who was a teacher for over 49 years–would turn over in his grave, NOT once, but MANY times if he knew what the NEA (otherwise known as “No Education Allowed”–see, I can come up with some “good uns”, too!) has been up to since 1960!

  19. Larry:

    “Right is right and left is wrong. Period.” You are so right. I’m glad you wouldn’t change a single syllable. You say what needs to be said in just the way it needs to be said.

  20. Margaret in CT

    I note in the photos of the demonstrations in Iran that some of the signs are written in English (“Where is my vote?”), rather than in Farsi. It’s an obvious cry for help from the “global community,” but how much support will they get? One media outlet after the other is being closed down or refused access because the government can’t guarantee that they will be “protected.” Protected from whom? The government! This type of circular insanity has played out in the past in many countries, particularly in Africa and South America. I see no reason for the outcome to be different in Iran. I’m certain that the globalists won’t get too worked up about it. Denial of liberty is no big deal, being that liberty is a conservative value.

    Stuffed ballot boxes? Armed men barring or intimidating prospective voters? Perhaps ACORN in Chicago or the New Black Panthers in Philly provided Ahmedinejad with advice for a “winning” election strategy. Israel: lock and load!

  21. Arthur Nankervis

    G’day Larry and Family,

    Larry: Rereading your article over again along with the learned responses, I am able to glean that the ongoing ‘people’s struggle’ in Iran could be “the test” that Biden blabbed about six months ago.

    I think all NLTZ family have concluded that Obama will not be up-to-the-mark in making any case against “I-Need-A-New-Job” and his band of murderers. Remember, the brave people who are protesting in Tehran have all been ‘filmed’ and will most likely face execution if they are unsuccessful in their quest. From “On The Record” : SOBHANI to VAN SUSTEREN – “Well, in a timespan of three weeks in the early ’80s, yes, there were 7,000 executions…”

    I hope Obama and the ‘supercilious twits’ in the W H have a ‘bang-up (party) evening’ next week (or somewhere within that time-frame), at roundabout the time the streets of Tehran have fallen silent, the mass graves have been prepared and the only sounds come from the execution sites – a 24 hour-a-day job for the Revolutionary Guard. Oh how brave they are. I have never prayed for a Muslim, but I do now – as these people are (like it or not) our brothers and sisters – for a little while anyway. I pray for a miracle and that evil loses – goodness wins. I know (personally) that there are many just waiting for the chance to oust the current regime and become a strong ally to free Nations – particularly America. Its up to Obama to show (not what he personally believes in, but) that Americans really care. If the free-world lets this one slide, what hope is there for freedom fighters worldwide? The rest of the ‘free world’ can hang their head in shame.

    Stitch and others have separately put forward the idea of “Armed Revolution” in The U.S. I am coming around to their way of thinking. I see nothing that inspires conservatives to wait until 2012 – there will be nothing left to fight with. I sure hope I am wrong though. I am sure President Reagan would have had a carrier task force in position by now and some words of encouragement for the brave in Iran.

    Lets hope that this time next week there is some good news coming out of the Middle East.

    My Best to All the Family

    Arthur

  22. Arthur Nankervis

    Larry and Family,

    Thought I’d use the break-in-the-traffic to ‘air’ on the side of nostalgia and triviality: (07:30 hrs on your east coast – I think – 12 hrs difference from Bangkok time). In a past submission, I bemoaned the fall of US spending power and the passing of those glorious “days of Gold;
    When finds of wondrous treasure – Set all the South ablaze, And you and I were faithful mates –
    All through the roaring days!” One point before I move on. This was linked to an Australian ‘Poetry’ site: Have a squizz at:

    http://blogs.america.gov/obama/?gclid=COG0_ITtk5sCFU0wpAodkzsDog Talk about fiddling whilst the Great Heartland burns:

    Also, something that will ‘age’ me. As a young fellow, like most people in OZ freshly introduced to ‘TV’, I would watch Bilko at every opportunity – (The Phil Silvers Show 1955 to 1959 [a total of 143 episodes]). I thought it was bonzer back then and having no reason to feel any different, I asked a mate of mine in Wales to purchase for me from ebay ‘The Phil Silvers Show’ – all 143 episodes. I’ve managed to sit still for a few minutes at a time in my viewing 3 episodes. Boy, has my idea of comedy gone through a major change. These ‘oldies’ should be shown at Gitmo as they would definitely send the ‘terrorists’ batty, a more than effective replacement for waterboarding. I doubt if TPSS would get a look in today – absolutely corny. Anyway, I ‘pricked up my ears’ at one of the lines from Bilko when talking to a visiting army MD: “What are your views on Socialized Health Care.” Remember, as this was from one of the first 3 discs, it would have been about 1955. So, the terminology is not new. Bilko was probably a Democrat.

    Now, onto America’s monetary muscle: Early 1972, SVN and having the opportunity to look at US Secret CIA reports (You fellows never twigged that there is a big difference betwen OZ & US ‘Secret’ – we used to get ours from a packet of Kellogs Cornflakes. The US variety, a little more difficult to get. One report stated: The cost of the war in SVN in 1968 (during the TET Offensive) to American Tax Payers was $US 2 million PER SECOND! Can you imagine that? In fact, I would have costed it at over that as I don’t think all the ‘fiddly bits’ were included.

    One for Triviaman. Cobber, you can probably cypher better than I. A second report stated that: Enough cement had been shipped into Cambodia (By the US) to cover the whole country up to a depth of 6 inches! Where did it all go? Well, the NVA labour battalions built a lot of extremely thick, hardened cement bunkers in Hanoi and Haiphong and all the way down the Ho Chi Minh trail. Question: At todays prices for a bag of cement and knowing the land area measurement of Cambodia and up to a depth of 6 inches, what would it cost? A heck of a lot, I’d say.

    There are many more “You would never believe me” type facts from the war in SVN. But, that’s enough for now.

    Arthur

  23. noleftturnz

    triviaman,

    Exactly. Good men like your father never had to “rely” upon the NEA. Such unions by and large are there to “protect” those that have no business being in the business that they are in.

    They insulate the slackers and the loafers from the “competition” of having to actually produce results. AKA: more than 10% of their students “graduating” high school with better than a fifth grade proficiency in mathematics for example..

    Such slugs bring down the reputations of the teachers who honestly care about the education that they are paid to provide.

    Such instructors have no need for the NEA..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  24. noleftturnz

    Margaret,

    Excellent points as always..

    You have again motivated the next “Thought of the Day”.

    In your honor, I will be posting “Cries From Afar”.

    The comments on this site make this task of writing so much easier..

    Thanks again to you and to all who make this site the BEST on the net. PERIOD.

    Larry

  25. So, Obama suggesting continued U.S. support of Israel may be contingent on Israel not continuing normal growth expansion of already-existing settlements (so, for example, an aging father and mother cannot move to “expand” a settlement where their son now lives) is NOT “meddling,” but Obama calling the Iranian rigged election what everyone knows it was and calling on the mullahs to conduct a do-over and saying America stands with people who want liberty everywhere, that IS “meddling”?

    I don’t think Reagan worried too much about being “popular” in the USSR when he came out and called it an “evil empire.” I don’t even think he worried all that much about being popular here at home. He just worried about doing the right thing and standing up for American values against anybody who doubted them, much less questioned them, much lesser (can I say that?) threatened them.

    On the other hand, His Narcissist-in-Chief is more worried about his popularity, both here and abroad, than he is about standing up for American values — if he even knows what they are — or were, before he came along and began “remaking” the USA into the USSA.

    I even wrote an article on my blog (Just askin’ -Just sayin’ at: http://ja-js.blogtownhall.com) entitled, “What Kind of Nation Is America Now, Mr. President?” because every time Obama goes abroad on one of his apology tours I learn something “new” and “bad” about the country I served for almost 26 years in the Army and still, and will always be, so fiercely proud of.

    P.S. Anybody know why I’m not seeing much buzz about July 4th TEA Parties anywhere yet? I thought by this time there would be buzz all over the place. If you know anything, please hook me up.

    Also, as always, all are invited, with Larry’s kind and previously granted permission, to visit and comment, favorably or not, at my blog — maybe even send an article or two to your liberal friends, for their edification and your entertainment. I know, I do that with my liberal friends.

    And remember: DO YOUR PART — call out or otherwise irritate a liberal TODAY!

  26. watch Iran closely, that will be the US in the 2012 elections.
    ACORN nuts are already forging 1 million “Mickey Mouse” phony birth (berf) certificates.
    They are also going to be in charge of “counting” the people.
    God only knows what they’re going to do when they run out of fingers and toes to count on. You know, with that “gubment edmucashun” and all.
    I’m guessing they’ll get to a point in their “figgerin” where they just stop counting and say “days a buncha people o’er dare”.
    ie, “buncha people” = like a billion people.
    Then comes the gerrymandering of all the districts (all to favor the demonrats).
    Then comes amnesty to all the illegals (Texas only needs 1 million more hispanic voters to turn Texas into another CA or NY blue state – and there are LOTS more than 1 million illegals in Texas).
    The stuff is going to hit the fan in 2012.
    People will ask, how can a guy (clown) with 20% approval rating, and losing in the polls 2-1, still win the election??
    Then the fun begins.
    Lock & load, Lucy – “Civil War, the Sequel” coming to a city near you in 2012.

    Our Second Amendment exists for a reason.
    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”

    That reason will be crystal clear in 2012.

    STITCH!

  27. Hi Larry,
    Terrific article. Today, there were assertions out of Iran there were several towns registering far greater numbers of votes, than there are registered voters. Well, tisk tisk tisk…can you imagine that? More votes than registered voters, DOES THAT SOUND FAMILIAR? It should.
    But, Stitch, you’re right…”we ain’t seen nothing yet.” What really scares the hell out of me is the notion of a potential civil uprising. You see, the symbol of our nation, no longer the eagle, but an octopus with a new arm of the federal government reaching out to put a hold on another vital national organ and strangle the life out of it. At this rate, it’s true, there may not be much in way of freedoms remaining by 2010, much less 2012.
    We hunger for a leader to speak for us. Larry, when I say you do us a grand service, I say with sincerity. We, the people, are becoming further disenfranchised by the day. Were it not for Fox, I believe there would already be rioting in the streets.

  30. Larry, I heard on a Dallas talk show yesterday, that Dallas ranks third behind Philadelphia and Detroit in least % of high-school graduates: 41.4%! (I might be wrong about one of those cities. The other alternative city might be New York.)

  33. Arthur, I think Stitch would be the person to answer your questions about the cement’s location and cost. He’s the REAL numbers guy!

    But thanks, anyway, for thinking of me!

  34. A bit off the topic, but still relevant to all our financial woes:

    Merge the U.S. Treasury with Xerox Company–it will solve everything! (lol)

  35. We should show the Iranian people the respect that their own leaders don’t, they have my respect though. Our own government is starting to look like Iran, and that’s not a future I will never embrace. This could be us in a few years after our useless Congress marches us toward their socialist agenda. Watch and learn. The Iranians seem to crave the freedoms we once had and want to stop their leaders from entering their daily lives. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, their religious and supreme leader; as their current and corrupt leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad steals an election and takes away their votes to continue to dominate and control their country and what direction they take it. Their recount sounds very similar to our Minnesota recount. One vote for you, two votes for me.

    With our new technology they are able to show the rest of the World what is happening in their Country as their leaders remove the foreign press from their borders. If they are controlling their own press and what gets released is very telling as ours government starts to control ours and what gets released for public consumption; I’ve got a wicked case of ingestion and diarrhea. So why would Obama not wants the public to stop watching FoxNews and why would the other networks and cable news channel and our print press continue bashing them everyday? Could it be that maybe Fox has exposed them and they cannot have educated people voting for their competition? When the mainstream media started complaining about them, it made me curious as to why would they. My curiosity got the best of me, they aren’t conservative by any means, and they generally bring on both sides in a debate, which I haven’t seen the rest of the media do in a very long time. Those that complained probably haven’t watched it at all. Let’s face the facts that our press seems to have embraced the theories of the oldest profession as well as our politicians. I wonder who’s the pimp and who’s the john. But, I could see Obama in a nice purple velvet number with a matching purple hat with a nice bright yellow feather.

    The citizens of Iran have shown more courage by using the internet, cell phones, laptops and other forms of media to get out to the World. We will start to see more killings as their government starts to rule with not only a heavy hand, but one that has grabbed a sledgehammer. Our new supreme leader holds out his limp wrist, and whispers a very weak response; he has chosen not to support the people of Iran. I keep going back to what happened in China at Tiananmen Square. As students and intellectuals on June 4, 1989, the protests occurred in a year that saw the collapse of a number of communist governments around the world. The protests were sparked by the death of a pro-market, pro-democracy, and anti-corruption official, Hu Yaobang, whom protesters wanted to mourn. The opposite of what our Government looks like now which is anti-market, anti-democracy and pro-corruption. Gee, thanks Obama, Pelosi and Reid. Thumbs up!

    Hu Yaobang died due to a heart attack two years later as a Party Political Bureau meeting on April 15, 1989. In his death announcement, he was described as: “Comrade Hu Yaobang was a long-tested and staunch communist warrior, a great proletarian revolutionist and statesman, an outstanding political leader for the Chinese army”. Although he was a “retired” official who had made “mistakes”, public pressure forced the CPC to accord him a State Funeral attended by party leaders, and as a form of eulogy which praised his work in restoring political normalcy and promoting economic development and growth after the Cultural Revolution. On April 22, 1989, 50,000 plus students marched to Tiananmen Square to participate in Hu’s funeral, while delivering a letter of petition to Premier Li Peng. We’ve seen the photograph of a young student or the Lone Rebel standing in front of a line of Liberation Army tanks.

    There are many similarities between what happened twenty years ago and to what has occurred in Iran. When people become repressed they tend to strike out at those who rule with a very heavy hand. I pray and hope that they get a better and more rewarding outcome. I can’t help but think that had the technology been available to those rebel student back in 1989, there may have been a different outcome.

  36. Larry,

    I received this email and thought it might help you co-mingle with the conservative elites.

    I know you mentioned that you were training with a replacement for Basko but it’s a two day event in Pittsburg, PA.

    I like Steve Moore from the Wall Street Journal and Ed Morrissey from Hot Air. But, I would be more excited to meet and speak with Joe the Plumber.

    Americans for Prosperity Foundation is the host of this event. If you cannot attend then maybe someone else might be to represent your website. Keep plugging away to get you attention and published.

  37. I received this request to contact your Senators to stop this gross bill from moving forward. Pedophile Protection Act

    Final call for petitions; Senate action expected next week

    More than 693,000 letters have been dispatched to members of the U.S. Senate in opposition to what critics have dubbed the “Pedophile Protection Act,” but with reports that a vote on the issue is likely as early as Monday, our window of opportunity to protest the plan is closing quickly.

    There have been several recent reports that a Senate vote on the bill is imminent. Now is the time to act. To ensure delivery of all letters by Monday, June 22, WND’s petition campaign will conclude at 1 p.m. Eastern TODAY (Friday, June 19).

    It’s not too late to take advantage of the opportunity to overnight letters of opposition to the hate crimes bill to all 100 U.S. senators for only $10.95.

    The Honorable ___________
    [Room #] [Name] Senate Office Building
    United States Senate
    Washington, DC 20510

    Dear Senator:

    I am writing to urge you to do all in your power to oppose passage of S. 909, also known as “The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act.”

    Passage of this bill by the U.S. Senate would be reckless and irresponsible not only because of the “chilling effect” it would have on First Amendment-guaranteed rights to free speech, but also because it would provide, for the first time ever, special legal protections for pedophiles and other sexual offenders.

    This bill would more appropriately be called “The Pedophile Protection Act.”

    The evidence for this extraordinary statement comes directly from debate in the House, when a simple amendment to exempt pedophiles from the protections offered by the bill were rejected.

    I write to warn you that those who support it, or allow it to become the law of the land without a fight, will be held accountable at election time.

    If there was ever a time for the Senate to stand and fight with a filibuster, that time is now. We are calling for members of the Senate, Republicans and Democrats alike, to stop S. 909.

    Stop “The Pedophile Protection Act” dead in its tracks – now.

    Please respond to me in writing as to whether you intend to oppose this dangerous bill – including by filibuster if necessary.

    Sincerely,

    Sources working with senators opposing the legislation say the campaign has shaken up the dynamics of the debate. “This bill was supposed to sail through the Senate, but it suddenly has become much more controversial as a result of all these letters,” one source said.

    As a result of the unique lobbying effort, the first opposition to the bill emerged last week, when Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., confirmed he will fight the “hate crimes” legislation and, if necessary, will launch a filibuster against the plan. Other opposition has come from Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla. and Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.

    Americans, meanwhile, continue to bombard members of the Senate with their opposition to “The Pedophile Protection Act.”

    I urge you to help us continue the barrage of overnight letters to the U.S. Senate.

    Janet (Folger) Porter
    President, Faith2Action

    P.S. If there was ever a time to stand and fight with everything we have, that time is now. The window of opportunity to filibuster is closing fast. We must use it NOW before it’s too late.

    You know we can always count on the liberals to defend the attacker then the victim.

    Please take the letter and send it to your representatives and pass it on to everyone you know. We cannot allow this to happen, especially after that stupid judge gave that child rapist a year in jail, a year in Oklahoma. It makes me sick to my stomach.

  38. Arthur,

    trust me, I’m no “war-monger”, but we have been pushed far enough.
    Our “president” is a dictator.
    Our legislature is NOT legislating.
    Our Supreme Court has shredded our Constitution (which they swore an oath to uphold) and declared we are no longer a nation of laws, but of political favors.
    Our petitions, letters, protests, emails, phone calls, are ridiculed and ignored.
    We have NO CHOICE but to rise up and FIGHT.
    I hate to do this (because its so long), but read what one of our Founding Fathers said in March 1775.
    The last sentence is world famous, but the rest of it is mostly unknown.
    Tell me this is not how most Americans feel now:

    “No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

    Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free– if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending–if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained–we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

    They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

    It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! ”

  39. oops, that was by
    Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.

  40. Eileen, after reading the last paragraph in your last post, I show here an even worse case that was posted as a comment by “freeaprilgriffin” on the first page at the YouTube URL of v=r0JkG1mZ05g, one day ago. (I have edited the comment for easier reading. I believe you can type in the usual URL portion that comes before the “v stuff.” The YouTube video is about a black man that has fathered 21 children by 11 different women!)

    “Matthew Sebuliba, a Ugandan immigrant and rapist, makes $2,400.00 a week and was ordered to pay only $10.00 in child support–he bribed the court, and his victim was jailed for not agreeing to submit to him. He tried to kill the child. He bribed the crooked judge to give him the infant. His whereabouts are unknown. This happened in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.”

    How sick our judicial system has become!

  41. Stitch:

    Thank you. Patrick Henry was a true patriot. I’ve read his speech many times. Indeed, “We have NO CHOICE but to rise up and FIGHT.”

    Lock ‘n Load!

  42. True, This! —

    Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
    The pen is mightier than the sword.

    Behold-
    The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
    But taking sorcery from the master-hand
    To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
    The loud earth breathless! —

    Take away the sword —

    States can be saved without it!”

    -Edward Bulwer-Lytton
    (from his play Richelieu; Or the Conspiracy)

    ———————–

    We need to pull it in a little here, Peeps!

    Nothing on earth can do more damage to the opposition, or good for a just cause, than a well turned phrase spoken by an educated individual in a moderate tone. All of this premature “calling to arms” will do far more damage than good, as it is just what “the opposition” wants to prove their point about the threat of violent revolt which often accompanies the debate of good over evil.

    Larry is “spot on” with his muse of simple correlations. To show the fallacy of committed acts and to call out the falsehoods of the “Cæsars” of the political Left which are multiplying faster than a shedful of bunnies in spring.

    Where are Michael Moore, John Kerry, Jerimiah Wright, John Edwards, the Daily Kos, Air America, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson these days? What great strides have Harry Reid and Nancy Poo-losi made to guide this country back to prosperity? What mystical salve has the President, Bill Clinton or Jimmy Carter applied to the supposed wounds which our country has inflicted upon the world? Draw those conclusions out in small words and short sentences if you want the masses to follow you.

    There’s no need to point a gun, when you can simply point a finger. There’s no need to gather arms, when you can simply gather and disburse factual information. Show the opposition for what they are, for what they have done, or mostly what for they haven’t done on a daily basis while in command, don’t simply hate them or vow to destroy them as individuals.

    Earlier, Margaret in CT said, “I note in the photos of the demonstrations in Iran that some of the signs are written in English (“Where is my vote?”), rather than in Farsi. It’s an obvious cry for help from the “global community.”

    Kudos to Mags for an excellent observation! These people are gathering together in a civilized war with simple words, not mindless weapons fired in anger from the darkness. Anyone can pick up a weapon and force their will upon another, but it takes far more courage to boldly take a stand in the light of day and on the blood-soaked ground between right and wrong with only words and convictions to defend a worthy ideal.

    Strike the loud earth breathless with clear ideas and simple words, my friends. Show obvious “sorcery” for what it is, or for where it will lead our society to ultimate failure and it is the opposition’s acts and actions which will become paralized and defenseless.

    Or… something like that.

  43. noleftturnz

    bean,

    First, GLAD to have Chicago’s finest back in the fold..

    In commenting to Rayne above, I said that I believe that the “call to arms” though thoroughly inspirational, will fall upon the deaf ears of the apathetic.

    They will insist that the load be carried by the few and from their couch they will say, “I was with you all along..”

    Convince them that the polls hold the fate of our nation in 2010. The proof of that has been instituted since January 20th.. The left KNOWS this to be true.

    We KNEW that they would do this. They are socialists. They are losing the momentum.. Thus the “need for speed”.

    Hold their feet to the fire in 2010. Take the House. Take the Senate. I’m not that choosy at this point..

    Reagan defeated communism without firing a shot. The left will be considerably easier to topple..

    They are even being incredibly cooperative by “fast tracking” their “Target America First” pogrom.. It should be like stealing blankets from the homeless.

    “Why point a gun when you can point a finger.”

    Priceless.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  44. When shall we call to arms?
    When we are no longer allowed to raise our hands, let alone our arms?
    When ACORN stormtroopers patrol our neighborhood looking for illegal “porch lights”.
    When our election tallies are counted 6 minutes after the polls closed and Obama is declared the “winner” … AGAIN!
    When ACORN is responsible for:
    registering the voters?
    running the election booths?
    counting the ballots?
    declaring the winners?

    The enemy is already arming.
    They are already in the field.
    They are already fine-tuning the wording on legislation to disarm all firearms – except theirs.
    They are already “educating” the judges on what are “terrorist” acts.
    They are already drafting their re-constituted Constitution.
    Their judges are already well versed in the terms of Socialism.
    They are ready to rubber-stamp whatever “verdict” das Fuhrer dictates.

    Will we be stronger and better armed next week? next year?
    Or will we lose yet more rights by then?
    Will we be even poorer and more unemployed than we are now?
    Less able to even buy guns and ammo, let alone legally allowed to?
    Will our elected leaders be more or less inclined to listen to us “later” rather than “sooner”?
    “Later” as when we are disarmed, unemployed, and lost every Constitutional right we had?

    No sir.
    NOW is the time to arm.
    NOW is the time to prepare.
    This fight is coming.
    Even if we wanted to retire from it, we cannot.
    It is coming for us.
    There comes a point when men say, “NO MORE”.
    And that day is coming.
    And let it come.

    Go ahead and write about it.
    I will live it.

    STITCH!

  45. every time I speak to a group, there is always someone (usually a woman) who stands up and says, “what we need is more prayer”.
    I’m not against that.
    We need ALL kinds of people.
    If you can pray 8, 10, 15 hours a day, then do it. We need it.
    However, let me remind you that it took 300 years of praying to get those Roman lions to quit munching on Christians.

    If you’re trying to save your childrens’ future, YOU DON’T HAVE 300 YEARS!

    So while you’re praying, pray for our success in the field.

    Lock ‘n Load!

  46. Stitch // June 20, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    When shall we call to arms?
    When we are no longer allowed to raise our hands, let alone our arms?
    When ACORN stormtroopers patrol our neighborhood looking for illegal “porch lights”.
    When our election tallies are counted 6 minutes after the polls closed and Obama is declared the “winner” … AGAIN!

    Stitch, take a step back, my friend.

    We lost a battle in the last election, not the entire war!

    To put it another way, Republicans held the entire game for how long and fumbled the ball, didn’t they? We’re on defense for a while, but that doesn’t mean that because we “think” we’re correct, we somehow have a God-given right to shoot all the members of the other team. Show me anywhere it says that, and I will offer my sincere apology to all.

    I strongly believe we should play the game the way it was designed to be played by civilized men and women. It is far more productive to “war with intelligent words” on the village square, than to pull pistols at 20 paces. I’ve seen senseless death “up close, and personal” on a few occasions, and I assure you, it is not pretty and, no matter the cause, it remains quite permanent.

    Yes, there is a time to choose-up sides and go to war, but, I assure you this is not one of them. How many times did we laugh at the opposition when they cried “foul” on stolen elections, then could not find a shred of evidence? How many times did they try to blame president Bush for “manufacturing” a war, when we could actually trace our problems with Saddam back to previous administrations? How easy is it becoming, day by day, to point out to our fellow citizens that this administration’s proposals have a high likelyhood of failure?

    Our forefathers has a tremendous capacity for resilience, and we need to recapture some of their spirit to win the day. Remember, we fought for freedom, only to start a war between ourselves. Learn from the mistakes of the past, ol’ boy. I ask you that as an “e-friend” and fellow countryman. Understanding and displaying the half-baked conclusions which drive your opposition’s desires is far more productive and civilized than simply killing him on the battlefield, any day, any time, anywhere.

    Yes, you have my word I will take up arms in defense of my country, as I spent 8 years in our Army. Saying that, I cannot, and will not in good conscience, utter words of defeat, or,”cry havoc, and loose the dogs of war,” until all of our very civilized means and options of dissent have been thoroughly exhausted.

  47. First off, it’s so great to see all the new names posting here. Welcome and so glad to have you here.

    Second, I have some questions for those of you who live outside the US. How is what is happening here, North Korea and Iran playing out? Is the foreign press drooling over the arrogant one playing out where you live?

    Alabamians are very nervous and are worried about his lack of inaction and lack of support for the Iranian students who are protesting their government and their “free elections.” The protest signs in English should tell the bloated ego one that they are turning to you for help and support and you’ve turned your back to them. Both Countries are challenging Obama and daring him to act. He shows them his limp wrist and says “he’s concerned” and we really shouldn’t meddle with other Country’s government. I think the conservative translation would be I’m scared and I want my woobie.

    If Bush was still in Office either dictator would be playing these kinds of games. They knew or at least suspected that he would do everything in his power to stop them. Obama is showing them a weakness that will eventually bite him in the ass. Déjà vu all over again with Jimmy Bob and Billy Bob and we all know how that turned out. Let’s hope it’s not true, it’s not the bloat bureaucrat or the politicians that gets the pain; it’s always the normal American that bears the blunt of these attacks. Now Russia wants us to remove our nukes and this idiot will probably agree. Putin is another one waiting in the wings to show Obama a thing or too.

    To all the fathers, have a great day tomorrow.

  48. beanhead, if it comes to the point where something akin to the infamous Sedition Act of the 1700s is passed by Congress (and, of course, immediately signed by our friendly, kind, neighborhood Pres “even before the ink is dried” on that piece of paper), then our voices will be stilled, except in the underground press and in our prayers to the Almighty.

    May it never happen! (I basically agree with your comments.)

  49. beanhead, but then again, here’s something to consider what one president said of days long ago:

    “Any people anywhere being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and force a new one that suits them better.” ( Abraham Lincoln)

    I wonder what meanings he gave to “shake off” and “force”? By physical means or verbal means–or both?

    What do you think?

    “I wonder what meanings he gave to “shake off” and “force”? By physical means or verbal means–or both?”

    You do well to delve the true meaning of words, tm. To try, as we all should, and separate the literal from the figurative.

    I don’t doubt that there is a real possibility that our mismanaged economy could entirely fail. I also don’t doubt our ability to “shake off” that which may bring us down, and recover even stronger. Maybe many more people need to get involved in this discussion in a much more meaningful way.

    I truly believe that the side which will lose this great debate is the side which attempts to strike violently first and force the other into submission. Will it be ours? Or will we try in a thoughtful, evident manner to use reason and knowledge to stave off these attacks on our freedoms.

    To each his own interpretation of current events, just as Lincoln had his own to deal with at that particular point in history. I for one see it entirely counter-productive at this time to strike with that deadly force first and attempt to present justifications later.
