“You Can’t Beat Santa…”(Rush Limbaugh)

So what happened yesterday has left myself and many other Conservatives/Republican’s feeling very down. We saw a strong coalition come out for the President who pushed him pass the challenger Mitt Romney. So the question now has to be why did we lose and what does that hold for the future of the country.  Has America switched from a Center-Right nation and become a Center-Left one? If so how long can we maintain the European welfare model? There is no doubt that much of President Obama’s base was part of the moocher class, as Any Rand would have called them.  President Obama’s message was a small message basically promising free this and free that.  Well we all know nothing given by the government can be free, someone has to pay.  No society has the power to last where the primary economic philosophy is “take from the rich and give to the poor”. It has failed everywhere it has been tried and will continue to fail. Today’s Democratic Socialist societies are the modern day version of the “let them eat cake” philosophy,by giving the people “free” stuff they won’t care that their nation is in decline. This way of governing only works for a certian period of time…and it’s inevitable conclusion was best phrased by Margaret Thatcher’s comment about Socialism: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money”.

The other major issue with this campaign as I see it was another mush head Republican was at the head of our ticket. The GOP “elites” who keep telling us that only a mush head “moderate” can win. These people like Karl Rove refuse to learn from the lessons of the past laid out before us by Ronald Reagan. Reagan was unashamed Conservative and he pushed his Conservative beliefs, but Rove wishes to tell us the era of Reagan is gone and only a big spending moderate mush head can win. If this is true then it may truly be over for America. Conservatives who believe in the individual, in property rights, and a true and just rule of law are not an outdated group…and if we are is that really an America we want to live in? Now the other issue is we need not only run Conservative candidates but we have to have articulate and intelligent ones.  We need people who can capture the energy of the GOP as Sarah Palin did in 2008, but we need it in an individual who is smart, articulate and can appeal to the Independents  and Reagan Democrats. If we keep having mush and bland people running for office, be it the House, Senate or President we will continue to lose.

In conclusion we must be prepared in the future for the “you can’t beat Santa” approach of the Democrats. We must understand that they will promise the moon to win elections. This campaign has once again shown that you can be a totally failed candidate and still win by “killing” the character of your opponent, scare the crap out of the voters (i.e. Mediscare/and he will take away your abortions/pill), and out and out bribery (which man as President will keep the checks flowing). In four years from now the GOP’s candidate will once more be running against Santa Clause and this time we must figure out how to win…

Keep Hope Alive my friends…for without it we are truly loss!

Run Mr. Cain Run!!!

On Saturday 5/21/11 Mr. Herman Cain made it official that he is running for the GOP nomination for President.  This is a great thing for the GOP as Mr. Cain brings in new and interesting ways of thinking to some very major problems.  I hope Mr. Cain makes it to the finish win, lose or draw the GOP needs this man in the race.  As of right now he is my candidate, but that could change as I see the rest of the field.  Yes Mr. Cain has hit a few stumbling blocks but what candidate won’t?  The true test of any candidate will be how do they deal with those trip ups, and to use those mistakes to their advantage in the future.

So for now I gladly say Run Mr. Cain Run!

Forest Park Vs. Boobies!!! Let the Smack Down Begin!

The venue Forest Park, Ga the activity?  A rousing protest….Breast Feeding Vs. Forest Park!  One hundred plus women gathered outside of City Hall to protest the new law that bans moms from breastfeeding their children above the age of 2 years old.  The City Council has decided that any breastfeeding beyond the age of 2 should now be considered Public Nudity and thus must be stopped in there ever vigilant fight against all things nude! 

City Manager John Parker has set out on his crusade to rid the world of naked women tata’s. The question is where does he stand on hairy man boobs? Is he Pro or Against?  I for one do not find the act of breastfeeding to be anywhere near public indecency but heck who am I to judge?  But Parker on the other hand has no problem judging.  He said the following to Atlanta WSB TV about the new ordinance : “It sets up a process whereby we can try to control nudity throughout the entire city,” Parker said .  You know its funny I didn’t realize Forest Park had a huge nudity problem.  Whats going on there?  Do the nudist come out of the Mountain’s and run in the streets?  Do you college age girls flock there for Girls Gone Crazy Forest Park Style?  Is nudity really a major issue in little bitty Forest Park?  If so why am I not there?  Just Kidding!!! (Trying to have a little fun).

As for you Mr. Parker the world has bigger issues then rather or not Jr. gets his 3 o’clock mommy snack.  Stop trying to push your weird issues of nudity on other people.  If you don’t want to see mommy’s jugs while feeding build some kind of breastfeeding stands where they can go or leave these women alone.

Tornado’s Attack on the Nation…

In the past Month and half we have seen several severe outbreaks of deadly tornadoes.  First my beloved Ttown (Tuscaloosa, AL) was nearly wiped of the Map.  Here in my home state of Georgia, Ringgold too was nearly removed from this Earth.  And today we wake to the sad news of Joplin, Missouri being devastated by a new killer Tornado.  With the death rate still rising and injured still being counted we need to pray for these besieged souls that they may find peace in the hands of the Lord.

Why is Life Becoming More Expensive?

What is the main reason for rising cost of all goods that we use these days? It’s the ever growing cost of gas. President Obama’s policy on “energy independence” is a joke. If he was serious he would not be continuing to block expanding domestic drilling. We will never have energy independence without drilling here at home.

As a result we are now so dependent on the rest of the world that all we can really do is hold on tight and hope for the best. And the best is not happening right now. With continued dependence on foreign sources of oil and with add cost of ethanol we need to be ready for $5 gas by summer time.

Pics from Wings Over Atlanta…The Blue Angels Show

Today I had a Great Patriotic day hanging out at Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, Ga (just north of Atlanta on 75), watching the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels, Canada’s Snow Birds, and many others.  It was a great show and a great fun day hanging out with the Troops and so many great Americans…Well on with here are some of the (not so great) pics I took…I hope you enjoy them!

“Draw Mohammed Day” Artist Has Gone Into Hiding

So have you ever heard of a Facebook group called “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”, it was created by a Seattle-based ex-cartoonist named Molly Norris.  Why is Miss Norris now an ex-cartoonist?  It’s because Cleric Anwar al-Awlaki’s fatwa against her.  The FBI has told Molly Norris for her own protection it is best if she goes into hiding, think of it is as Witness Relocation Program with out the help of the Feds.

Anwar al-Awlaki is currently one of the most wanted men by the US.  President Obama has given the ok to the CIA to kill the terrorist leader wanted for his role in such attacks as the Fort Hood shooting and the failed Car Bombing in Time Square.  Now the always pleasant al-Awlaki has placed a hit on the cartoonist for daring to insult the great Prophet.  It does not matter that Miss Noris apologized for any offense her “joke” may have caused her life is still in real danger.

So why am I writing about this?  Its to demonstrate the current state of Islam.  For the most part the majority of Muslims are very peaceful people but, with nearly 1 in 4 people being Muslim you can see that even 1 percent of the population being radicalized represents a very serious threat.  In recent days we have seen how easy it is for the West to spark serious rounds of violence in the Muslim world. 

Do to the ignorance of one Pastor in Florida whom threatened to burn a Koran (which by the way is a disgusting and ignorant act) violent protest broke out across the Muslim world.  When in 2004 a Danish cartoonist drew a satire image of Mohammad with a bomb strapped to himself also caused more violent reactions.  The problem is that whatever we do in the West to offend is used as a tool to cause violence by Islamic extremist. 

All these acts above demonstrate the total intolerance of some Muslims.  It is time that the West start demanding tolerance from the Muslim World…no longer should we allow every action that those in the West take be used as an excuse to cause violence and justify acts of terrorism.  These extremist are the enemy and they must be held to account, not just by those who seek peace in the West but by their fellow Muslims.  Untill Muslims world-wide stand up against those who use their religion for violence we can expect many more innocent deaths…most of whom will be innocent Muslims.

So while we wait for Muslims to throw out bums like al-Awlaki, people like Miss Molly Norris will have to continue to live their lives in total fear of some fanatic seeking to kill them.

Remembering 9/11/01

(I wrote this last year for the anniversary of 9/11 it was true then and its true today)

An Open Letter to the Nation

On this date September 11, 2010, 9 years after the worst terrorist attack in US history I wish to stop and honor the memories of the people whose lives were lost and to keep in my heart and mind the family and friends who are the true victims of this great tragedy. I remember standing in front of a big screen tv watching the second plane crash into the second tower and watching the buildings collapse. I remember seeing the hole in the side of the Pentagon and praying for the victims and for our Nation. I had great fear in my heart that many more lives were going to be lost that day and not just in New York and Washington DC but all over our Nation. I remembered asking, why God why was this happening to us? What did we do to deserve such a horrific attack?

And I remember a promise that the nation made to the victims and to the terrorist that attacked us. We will never forget!

Well its 9 years later and people are forgetting and going about their lives as if nothing special really happened that day. And this saddens me to my core because out of the attacks on September 11th came a new spirit. The Nation had stood together and watched in horror, fear, anger, confusion and sadness as we were brutally attacked by an enemy we didn’t really know and could never really understand their motives. But out of these emotions new emotions began to rise up; a sense of pride, love, hope and patriotism arose in this great Nation. People were proud to be an American and we stood hand in hand not as Democrats or Republicans, not as Liberals or Conservatives but as Americans, as New Yorkers and citizens of Washington DC.

I watched the tragedy unfold day after day and I watched as people from all over this great Nation poured into New York not to go shopping or to site see but to aid in the rescue and recovery. If they weren’t rescue workers they were ordinary Americans who were there to share their strength, love and hope with the rescue workers to encourage them on in their impossible task. This Nation opened up its hearts to the victims and gave without hesitation food, clothes and money to try and give them whatever aid and comfort we could to help them out. We became what we should always be; one Nation under God and Indivisible. We became America.

And so I ask what happened to us in the past 9 years? Have our political disagreements become so bad that we cannot remember that spirit of unity even for one day?

So I ask can’t we take one day out of each year and unite not just to remember those who were lost to us but to celebrate their memories. Their loss caused our Nation to become as one and this is something to celebrate. So here is my challenge to the Nation. Every September 11 should be more then just a day of remembrance but also a day where we set our petty arguments and disagreements aside for 24 hours and we once again become a Nation Unified in the memories of that day not to relive the horror but to rejoice in the love that came out of it. We are all Americans and September 11 should be the day that reminds us of that fact.

So in closing I must ask God with all my heart to be with the family and friends of those whose lives were taken or given willingly to save others and to be with our soldiers and their families who are fighting for our Nation give them strength to carry on and to help them with all that they do. And one more thing God please never let this Nation forget!

May God Bless the United States!!!

Do Not Burn the Quran

It started with one man in Gainesville, Florida and now the horrible idea to burn a Quran has began to spread.  Preachers in Tennessee and Kansas now to say they will burn a Quran on 9/11.  This is a disgusting act by people who should know better.  Preachers should be seeking a world of peace and demonstrating their love of God not through an act that is designed to provoke but through an act of love.

These men should be gathering other leaders from multiple faiths to denounce the Islamic extremist, rather than giving the image of being extremist themselves.  In this nation we are a land of tolerance, tolerance doesn’t mean we must condone what others do but we don’t have to act like the people that we disagree with.  The Bible teaches us to hate the sin and love the sinner, in this case we should not be trying to provoke the peaceful elements of Islam but should be embracing them to denounce those who use Islam for violence.

The people have the right to burn the Quran…but that does not mean that they should do it.  Part of being a free people is the self exercise of restraint.  Just because the government of Saudi Arabia has official policy to burn Bibles and destroy holy Christian objects doesn’t mean we should act the same way. 

These preachers have decided to make a stand against Islam…thats fine but their actions could cause great damage to our nation, to our citizens and to our military.

The other part of this story should be clear…true leaders in the Islamic faith should being sending messages to the “Muslim World”.  And that message is, “If these Quran burnings take place we will have an oppertunity to show the world that we are a people of peace, demonstrate and march but do not give into acts of violence.”   Unfortunately almost no one will, especially almost no religious leaders in the “Muslim World”. 

If the Quran is burned, this will be an oppertunity for the Muslim World to show that they are a people of peace.

Finally what I find to be the most disgusting part of all this is that these Preachers would dishonor the memories of the victims of 9/11 by using a tool of hate.
