It's Been a Long Time my Old Friend

It's been a while since I have blogged. For my own sanity and blood pressure, that's a good thing. I apologize to the two people who might actually read this but my absence was absolutely necessary. But I am back, who knows for how long. I am going to dedicate this first post to pop culture.

I can start with my favorite (sarcasm) celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. He got his face beat up. While I don't condone violence, I can say that karma is a real bitch! Here is a man who went after Isaiah Washington for saying the word fa&&ot and then after Miss California for her traditional marriage answer. He was such the martyr after that. Perez practically made himself the poster boy for gay rights and then to openly call another gay man a derogatory name in public? Well quite frankly I think that he got what he deserved and I dont know why it took this long. I wont waste time on him as I dont want to contribute anymore to his 15 minutes of fame, but I read on all reports that he Tweeted and blogged about being attacked and asked for his readers to call 911. How stupid is he? Doesn't he have a phone? Why cant he dial 911 himself? By asking hundreds of people to clog the lines, he is taking resources away from REAL emergencies. This is all proof that he is a selfish, self centered ego maniac. He makes a living drawing penis's on the faces of people he doesn't like and tearing people down. And who is he? A fat slob with a computer.

It's a shame I cant be done talking about him. Unless you were living under a rock, then you know that he was FOR SOME REASON a judge in the Miss American pageant. He again took a public opportunity to make it about himself. He asked Carrie Pujean, Miss California contestant, about her views of gay marriage. Miss California answered honestly but without malicious intent and/or insult or injury. She simply answered the way she felt. She stated that while gay couples should have equal rights, that marriage is defined as between a woman and a man. Whether we agree with her content or not, she has the first Amendment right to speak freely without judgement or punishment. Of course for the first time in my life, the ACLU agreed with me. She was drug through the mud mercilessly and insulted and called names of the most tasteless kind. I found it very hypocritical of people who are fighting to not be judged and who just want to be treated equally, would then turn around and treat someone like that. But that's Hollywood and nothing should surprise you about that. And of course, as planned, Perez found himself a martyr once again. He put himself in the spotlight as the downtrodden victim of it all and shamelessly used the smearing of a young woman to gain popularity for himself and his interests. In the end, another Miss California was crowned. Its a he said/she said issue and we wont know why Carrie was fired so I wont rush to any conclusions, but here is where it gets ironic......

The new Miss California, while being interviewed on Gretta's show, was asked the same question and after some flowery language said "It should be up to the voters." Well duh. They voted already and said no. Again disagree or agree with the definition of traditional marriage, it sounds like the new Miss California has the same stance as the old Miss California, just worded it differently. Only in America!!!

And then there was the Letterman thing. Which I think was over politicized on all sides. He made a tasteless comment about her young daughter and should have apologized and finally did. At first there was confusion about his statement because she was with her younger daughter, Willow, was is 14. And to say what he said about her daughter was not only tasteless but if he did mean her, then it was illegal. Then he cleared up his statement and said he was talking about the 17 year old Bristol. Some liberal actually said, well that's OK because she had a baby out of wedlock! Are you kidding me???? It's OK to make a demeaning statement about a young woman because she made a mistake? So it's like the "she asked for it" mentality? How dare they! Look I didn't make a big deal and I wasn't calling for him to be fired, I just want people to know its not funny to say such things. I don't care if you make a living as a comedian, you can make fun of parents, but stay away form the kids-especially when the comment is sexual in nature. It was pretty low rent on Letterman's part, but he apologized even if it was half assed. Then Gov. Palin accepted his apology and that should have been the end of it. Some people were still protesting afterwards which kind of made them look pathetic. There hearts were in the right place, but they should have squashed the protest and just started a nasty letter writing campaign to CBS or something.

I will post again soon. Back to work, while I still have a job.

I never thought I would blog about a beauty pageant. I hate them. I think they are a terrible example for young women of the nation and world for many reasons. There is no covering them up by calling them "scholarship opportunities", let's call a spade a spade.....its a beauty pageant. Those beautiful women with marginal talent and no brains should not be representing women anywhere because they are not the norm. Having said all that, I am writing in defence of one of them. I never thought I would say that either!!

While I didn't watch the pageant last night, I couldn't get away from the controversy surrounding an answer from one of the contestants. First let me start by saying that the fact that the Miss America pageant lost any credibility by having Perez Hilton as a judge. Here is a man who makes his living tearing people down and drawing penises on people's faces. In what world is he qualified or even a representation of what the pageant stands for? He is mean and callus and I have already blogged about him before so I wont give him any more time. Anyhow, he asked Miss California about gay marriage. A question that clearly would have had a wrong answer no matter what she said. She had no chance. One way would make people mad and the other way would make people mad. But she answered honestly. While I don't agree with her answer that marriage should be between a man and a woman, I applaud her for standing on the world stage and answering honestly. As she believes. Right or wrong, that is her right as an American citizen.

Now, all the liberals are angry at her and saying it cost her the crown. We all know that's not true. Southern girls always win, that's what cost her the crown LOL. But seriously when did we become a nation of people who couldn't speak up for themselves, even if the answer is unpopular??? Isn't that the beauty of the first amendment? Are we supposed to all share the opinions of liberals because we are bad if we don't? Does this mean Miss California is going to be put on Napalitano's terrorist watch list along with returning war vets, anti-abortion activists and anti-illegal immigrant activists???

Why cant people speak their beliefs honestly without being called bigots because the "opposing view" thinks differently? If gay rights groups don't want to be judged then they SHOULD NOT judge! The whole "do onto others..." applies to everyone.

Miss California might have hurt the feelings of some people with her answer, but should she have lied? Not been true to herself so as to not hurt others? We cant walk around on egg shells fearing that we are going to hurt other people's feelings. There was no violence, no hateful words. She simply answered the question....which was a question that should not have been asked in the first place. Perez likes to stir things up and cause controversy and loves only Perez. I think I will write the Donald and tell him from now on, you should just get the questions in advance and then the contestants can just cater to the judges and this can all be even more disgusting that it is.

So, while we have different opinions, I applaud Miss California and may she actually shine in the face of controversy and finally someone from these stupid beauty pageants can ACTUALLY teach real young women a thing or two about being honest and sticking to your beliefs no matter what the price!

Illegals Should get a One Way Ticket Home! Figuratively of Course, not at Tax Payer Dollars!

The link above goes on in more detail about Obama and his wanting to make illegal immigrants "come out of the shadows" and get on a path to citizenship. I am all for people coming to this country to realize the American dream. We are all descendants of those people. People who came to get jobs, work and provide a better life for their kids. I get it. What I also get is that they assimilate, learn the language, pay taxes and live within the constraint of the law. These are the people which I support fully. People who come to this country illegally and then drain our resources...hospitals, jails, etc ALL of which we pay for in more and more taxes are the ones I have a problem with. First and foremost, they have committed an illegal act. They have illegally entered this country. As cruel as this must sound, they don't deserve citizenship or the chance to redeem themselves! I don't care that they take the jobs Americans don't want. They drain our resources and we pay for it while the govt. turns a blind eye.

If Obama gets his way and this legislation passes, it is not only going to make us worse for the wear but it will open the doors to other questions. The main one being, "if we are forgiving the illegal act of immigrants...then why not other criminals?" If you break the law, you get punished. That's the way it is and should be! We cant make exceptions for anyone. At any time.

The commenter's on this link are all right and I think most Americans would agree that this is a selfish act. Democrats court the poor and downtrodden vote. If there are 20 million illegals in this country, then that's 20 million votes for another Obama term. It's so blatantly selfish of him to jeopardize our country for the sake of control of the country. Its also a damned shame.

Obama might be a great speaker and a bigger than life character, but he has really made a mess of things. This first 100 days should have solely been focused on the economy. Getting jobs and houses back to Americans. Its the problem that started this mess in the first place, its also the first place he should have started when trying to fix it. Not jump all over the place. I get whiplash when I think about how often he jumps from one thing to another. But you know as admirable as it is to want to change everything, you don't have to change everything in the first 100 days. And you cant jump from one thing to another. You have to follow through and stay the course until its complete.

Since I am talking about jumping, I will touch on 2 items that really irritate me. #1 is that Obama overturned the law that states the press cant get in to witness the bringing home of the fallen soldiers. I know the families can now give permission and that's the only way they can get it, but this was also a purely selfish move. Its not to honor the dead, its to further his agenda. At one time it was to bring soldiers home from Iraq. Now he is just moving them to Afghanistan. But that's another blog for another day. This is about the privacy of the dead soldiers. I don't think, even with the families permission, that anyone outside of the family and the military unit bringing them home should be there. It's about honoring the dead-not making a spectacle or furthering an agenda. It really bothers me.

Second and final point is that Obama made a surprise trip to Iraq this week. He was syrupy sweet and full of love and admiration for the troops, as he should be. But he all but declared victory in Iraq. He kept saying "we" and "us" as if he weren't a former Senator who voted against the war and the surge. Now he is claiming victory? No sir. While I always thought this war was on the wrong front, it is Mr. Bush who gets to claim victory. Not you.

Maybe I am Wrong...but I am Never Wrong!

Maybe I am making a big deal out of nothing with this G20 Summit speech, but I personally think that no matter what has happened in the past, the leader of a country should not get on a world stage and say his country has been arrogant. And of course, thats just what Obama did last week. He said America has a tendency to be arrogant. The left wing looneys are downplaying it as best they can, but either way, Obama should not have tried to get the popular EU vote by degrating his own country. Shame on him! He should be proud of the nation that put him in office!

Sad day in Indiana

And on MSNBC also....Elkhart, IN the place that Obama flew to and promised to save is reporting the highest unemployment rates in the country. He stood on a platform and waved his hands and spoke from a teleprompter and injected false hope into a community of blue collar workers with no other prospects. And now they are aren't feeling the warm fuzzies as before. Of course, MSNBC doesnt report the fallout just the numbers. Recently, Mike Huckabee took his show to Elkhart to interview the real people there...workers laid off and who have nothing left to fall back on. They were discourage, hurt and wondered when the help promised would get to them. The bosses at some factories even admitted they would have to lay off more workers and that his plan wasnt realistic.

I want to re-iterate that I do not want Obama to fail because that would mean so would this great nation. What I want to happen is for people to open thier eyes and see that this is not the hope and change they were promised. And now they are in the hole for much more because of this stupid "spenduluous" that didnt do anything!

And it's not just Elkhart, it's lots of places. The Pacific Northwest has seen its highest unemployment rates ever. Well yes, yes, we all know you inherited the recession, but you made it worse with a fake stimulus bill that only grew the federal government and made each and every American, regardless of combined household income, owe more money than ever before. Soon, we will all just be working to pay taxes. It already seems like that in New Jersey!

Well Rested and Mentally Sound

I had to take some time off and just calm down. I inherited my fathers sense of justice and passion about the things in which I believe and sometimes it's to my detriment.

I don't wish ill upon anyone and I hope it's not true and I cant substantiate this story, but if it is true, then my point about double standards in politics is front and center. You know the left will not condemn her as they did Bristol Palin. There will be no late night jokes or condemnation in gossip magazines and sites. And correct me if I am wrong, but cocaine is illegal. Teen pregnancy is not. So let's see how the press treats the daughter of the VP if this comes out to be true. I am not going to waste any time on it because it hasnt been proven and it doesnt mean anything to our country other than a double standard in the press.

So back to serious issues that actually matter.

For all the talk about change and the past 8 years blah blah blah, Obama has either kept or "put off" changing Bush policies...except the tax breaks which is to be expected because that's all he and his cronies are doing. Endebting us to China and bankrupting this nation on the backs of future generations. I see now that he doesnt intend to pull out of Iraq completely, but is also ramping up forces in Afghanistan. He changed the name of the operation so it's not a war on terror now, it is a "contingent overseas operation" or something equally PC and lame. These people dont get rights and we shouldnt tip toe around them! They are lethal killers set on destroying us. Let's call it what it is....a war on terror. And for all those people who thought Obama was going to bring our men and women home...get used to another disappointment from the "change and hope" you believed in but slowly are realizing you aren't going to get!

His 310 budget is going to be the final nail in the coffin and thats just the budget for fiscal year 2010! It doesnt include the other billions and trillions he has given away and as we can all see, democrat or republican, hasnt done anything. Unemployment rates are higher than ever, people are still loosing thier homes and people are going without health care. He flies the Air Force One around for his photo ops, but 25 saved jobs do not a success make. Caterpillar is laying off more employees, in the very town he went on tv to claim he was going to save. The AIG bailout was disastrous and now some of the bonuses have been returned, but The Secy of Treasury knew about them and let it happen. He is a moron and should be fired. He is the one person who was nominated and then made it through the vetting process to be appointed. As I mentioned before in a previous post, all others were 2nd and even 3rd choices. Now there is another one. The head of the EPA withdrew his nomination because of reports he "mismanaged" funds. Hmmm....

Now North Korea is going to fire a missile and we openly admitted that the US isnt prepared to do anything about it. Wow! I am no military strategist, but that sounds like the dumbest thing to say in the face of some of the most dangeourous people in the world! And Obama is off at the G20 summit where a few months ago he was president of the world and now after all the failures and broken promises, he has been called the one who has US on the road to hell. How quickly the bloom feel off the rose. As I mention over and over, I dont want Obama to fail. I dont get any satisfaction out of the "I told you so's". I love his country and I want it to be as glorious as she was intended to be by our forefathers. What I want to happen is people to open their eyes to see that this is poltics as usual and not the right direction for this country. Another 4 years and we will be speaking Chinese!! We have to keep voting these people out of office who have no intention of making this a better place to live, but care more for furthering thier agenda.
