Keep Your Head Up, April

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 30, 2007

My recent post, in which I explained what the Donks were REALLY saying when they said certain things, brought forth some commentary from a newer reader who came to us via Moonbat Monitor’s blog.

“Progressive”. So, is that the ne politically correct way of saying America hating, socialist, f**k the Constitution, I’ll change the laws to suit my nanny state ideas, do it my way or else, liberal? And will we be charged with some kind of ‘ism’ if we use the L word now?

April is pretty much always right on point. I often wonder why I don’t see a blog out there with her name on it. Maybe she has one and I just don’t know about it. I responded as follows:

That’s the new word, April. You’re right on top of it, as usual.

HAHA … Yep. Do we get to pick which ism? Make mine Catholicism. It’s just too provocative and right to pass up!

Go Benny!

I had to have a little fun! Any why not Catholicism? Sure beats socialism, liberalism, communism and, of course, progressivism. April didn’t seem consoled:

The fact that I’m on top of it makes not a whit of difference. The left has taken over this country by changing the laws over the past thirty years to suit their agenda, and my voice (and the majority of Americans’) has been sufficiently stifled. Who’s Benny?

Again, she’s right on point, mostly. The Left hasn’t changed the laws per se to suit their agenda. What they’ve done is ignored and usurped them, particularly those laws that impose limitations upon what powers they may have once elected to office.

After I submitted and re-read my response to this, I realized that there were some really important points in it (which I believe warranted creating this post):

Ahh … Forgot you’re new here …

“Benny” is my nickname for Pope Benedict XVI. Most people don’t have any idea of the influence he had in the administration of JPII. He was the perfect choice at the time, and will certainly prove one of the great leaders in the history of the church, despite the size of the shoes he now must fill.

The Left’s assault on America started long before LBJ. It’s only since then that people have noticed. Your voice is important, April, because without it, the voices of the true Patriots in this country would be further silenced.

This is the one positive I see in the Ron Paul candidacy. He’s brought out a bunch of conservative voices that have avoided participation for decades. Even though his chances of winning the primary or the general election are less than nil, his conservative voice (and that of his following) is a strong magnet pulling the debate in its proper direction – the Right.

Though I sincerely fear a Schlock or Hitlery presidency, I know in my heart of hearts that the conservative movement has the upper hand in this election, just because of the power of the conservative voices shouting to save the freedoms the Left would force us to surrender.

There’s a reason the Right is called the Right. And it has to do with more than just the direction.

Of course, it was only fair that I let her in on who “Benny” is.  After that, a brief history lesson.  The assault on the Constitution began in earnest in the early part of this century when FDR tuned the Constitution on its head.  Those of us who adore and respect President Lincoln have to shoulder a small part of the blame for this, due to his doing the right thing for all the right reasons but without the real authority to do it (freeing the slaves).  FDR simply applied that concept to his belief that implementing socialism was the right thing to do, and that his intentions were good, even though he had no authority to do it.

Still, two wrongs don’t make a right, and there’s a BIG difference between releasing people from slavery that they never should have been forced to endure and forcing an entire nation into government servitude simply because its people are having difficulty on the economic front.

April’s voice, like those of Moonbat Monitor, MrMinority, Emperor Misha, and others, are necessary for the defeat of this onslaught of socialist extremism we face today.  We simply cannot have her voice go silent like so many have.  We will need every conservative to stand firmly against socialism in the coming election cycle, as Hitlery does have a shot, and a big enough one that we cannot afford to stand by aloof.

I also refer to the Ron Paul candidacy.  This is a very important reference, as Ron Paul is a very important candidate in this race.  While I stand a better chance of throwing a snowball from Philadelphia to Hitlery’s home in Illinois, Arkansas, or New York (pick one – I can’t reach any of them from Philly) than Mr. Paul does of winning the primaries, he and his following are serving an EXTREMELY important purpose – FORCING THE DEBATE TO THE RIGHT.

Say what you want about the nutcases that actively support Mr. Paul.  Lord knows I’ve said plenty here at the RWRepublic, but make no mistake about it – these people are not going to go away just because their candidate loses the nomination.  They’ve been a silent but frustrated lot, and now they are returning to activism.  That means more conservatives involved in the discourse.

That can only be a good thing, even if some of them toss their vote to the Libertarian Party (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as long as there’s a corresponding siphon party on the Left having the same effect).  Most will support the winner of the Republican primary, given the fact that they, through their candidate, had the real and fair opportunity to influence the party’s direction, and will continue to do so in the future.

That’s why I say conservatives have the upper hand.  It’s not in the bag by a long shot, but we do have the upper hand.

Translation: Donk Debate

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 28, 2007

OK …

I’ll admit I didn’t even know the Donks were having a debate this week. Now I can’t find a transcript.

However, there have been a few comments posted in the blogosphere from the debate, chock full of the usual liberal “spin”. So here’s some of what was said (courtesy of John Hawkins), and what was really meant by it.

Mrs. Clinton, how would you define the word “liberal?”

And would you use this word to describe yourself?

—————–

HITLERY: You know, it is a word that originally meant that you were for freedom, that you were for the freedom to achieve, that you were willing to stand against big power and on behalf of the individual.

Unfortunately, in the last 30, 40 years, it has been turned up on its head and it’s been made to seem as though it is a word that describes big government, totally contrary to what its meaning was in the 19th and early 20th century.

I prefer the word “progressive,” which has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century.

I consider myself a modern progressive, someone who believes strongly in individual rights and freedoms, who believes that we are better as a society when we’re working together and when we find ways to help those who may not have all the advantages in life get the tools they need to lead a more productive life for themselves and their family.

So I consider myself a proud modern American progressive, and I think that’s the kind of philosophy and practice that we need to bring back to American politics.

TRANSLATION:

You know, it is a word that originally meant that you were for freedom, that you were for the freedom to achieve, that you were willing to stand against big power and on behalf of the individual. Of course, I’ve never been for ANY of that. I’ve always believed that freedom took too much power away from the powerful, and that people who achieve should be forced to do as they are told with the fruits of their success. The interest of the individual should never take precedence over the interests of big power, especially when that big power is me.

In the last 30, 40 years, it has been turned up on its head and it’s been made to seem as though it is a word that describes big government, totally contrary to what its meaning was in the 19th and early 20th century. Now it means something that I agree with, except to a lesser degree. Big government as we have today can never do everything we need big government to do, so it must be made bigger.

I prefer the word “progressive,” which has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century. That’s when real Americans actually entered the picture. Washington? Jefferson? Adams? Franklin? Paine? Madison? All lightweights with no clue. You want to talk about REAL Americans? FDR. LBJ. HRC. Those are the Americans who have made a difference.

I consider myself a modern progressive, someone who believes strongly in individual rights and freedoms, except those guaranteed by the Bill of Rights; who believes that we are better as a society when we steal people’s money and give it to those who refuse to lead more productive lives for themselves and their families.

So I consider myself a proud modern American progressive, a true socialist, and I think that’s the kind of philosophy and practice that we need to bring to American politics.

You can take your “modern American progressive philosophy” and shove it up your fat hairy ass, Mrs. Clinton. Maybe you can use it to clean your cankles after you shit it out.

Dennis Kucinich: I say we achieve strength through peace. That’s the new doctrine that I’m going to promote throughout this campaign.

TRANSLATION:

I say we try a new approach to winning wars – surrender. That’s the new doctrine that I’m going to promote throughout this campaign.

Dennis Kucunich, surrender monkey.

John Edwards: I would challenge every Democrat on this stage today to commit to raising the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour by the year 2012.

TRANSLATION:

I would challenge every Democrat on this stage today to commit to increasing unemployment and the need for socialist programs by raising the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour by the year 2012.

As if any of them would turn down THAT opportunity?!?!?!

Senator Obama, how do we pull out now?

OBAMA: Look, I opposed this war from the start. Because I anticipated that we would be creating the kind of sectarian violence that we’ve seen and that it would distract us from the war on terror.

At this point, I think we can be as careful getting out as we were careless getting in. But we have to send a clear message to the Iraqi government as well as to the surrounding neighbors that there is no military solution to the problems that we face in Iraq.

TRANSLATION:

Look, I opposed this war from the start. Because I anticipated that we would be creating the kind of sectarian violence that we’ve seen decline and that it would enhance our success in the war on terror. Any military success for America is bad for America.

At this point, I think we can be as foolish getting out as we were successful getting in. But we have to send a clear message to the Iraqi government as well as to the surrounding neighbors that there is no military solution to the problems that we face in Iraq if a Democrat is in the White House. We just don’t handle these things well.

The simple fact is that the Donks could have never dreamed of the successes that were achieved in Iraq militarily – never mind the decline in terrorist activity at home that accompanied them. Of course, Osama Obama would rather succumb to terrorists at home than fight them abroad. Great strategy – NOT.

I think he just made an admission against self-interest. I don’t know that he is mentally qualified to own that gun. I’m being serious. Look, just like me, we go around talking about people who own guns. I am the guy who originally wrote the assault weapons ban, that became law, and then we got defeated and then Dianne Feinstein went to town on it and did a great job.

TRANSLATION:

This guy owns a gun. Therefore, he is crazy. I don’t know that he is mentally qualified to own that gun. I’m being serious. Look, just like me, we go around talking about people who own guns. I am the guy who originally wrote the assault weapons ban, that became law, and then we got defeated and then Dianne Feinstein went to town on it and did a great job.

Look, we should be working with law enforcement, right now, to make sure that we protect protect the government against people who know what to do with a gun and might use one to protect their freedoms against those of us who are all about controlling them.

Mr. Biden, YOU are crazy. YOU are the evil one who should not be trusted. You say you want to take guns away from people, while in the same statement, you brag about your own criminal record writing laws that violate the Second Amendment.

And how about Obama’s prevarication about not being able to get a cab in New York City because he’s black. If I were a cab driver, I’d pass him up just because he’s nutty as a fruitcake.

If this is the best the Donks can do, they’re going to need Hitlery’s ballot box stuffing techniques to even come close!

Another Great Voice Goes Silent

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 25, 2007

What’s with bloggers these days?

At each and every turn, another voice of the right goes silent. This weekend, Katey announced that her blog will be shut down in the very near future.

Kate was truly one that belonged to the GLOB (Gorgeous Ladies Of the Blogosphere). I’ve seen pics.

With the voices of Delfts, Paul, CJ, Mama, TripleNeck, and Fox all going silent, I’m going to need to have a new section of the BlogRWRoll for “The Silent MajoRWRity”.

Folks, I promise to hang in there as long as you are reading, despite my current lapse in productivity. It’s the school thing. Studying is eating up all of the time I used to devote to research and writing.

In the meantime, all my best wishes and a musical prayer go out to Kate.

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And give you peace, and give you peace;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious, and be gracious;
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you.

– Peter C. Lutkin (1858-1931)

Exam Prep …

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 24, 2007

I was going to send blogger kudos to the Pope for his relaxing restrictions on the Latin Mass, but I realized that was all I knew about current events, due to my intense studying for the next big tech exam.

Another interference is the performing world. We went from nothing to rehearsing two nights a week and from no active clients to three, all in the space of a couple of weeks. Not that it’s a bad thing or a problem, but it does cut into blogging time (and time to read anything other than the current tech manual).

After the exam, I’ll make a run around the blogosphere and get something up. I should be taking it sometime late next week.

Say a prayer. Failure is not an option.

Fred’s Going to Run

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 17, 2007

Well, The Washington Post (yeah I know – lots of credibility … NOT) says so. Actually, they quoted Thompson advisor Mary Matalin (who IS credible) as saying this:

“He has made up his mind,” she said. “And one can appreciate that planning the announcement of what’s on his mind needs to take place in a deliberative fashion.”

I’m not sure about the strategy. It seems to me waiting until September may not be the best idea. Still, Matalin and Thompson, et. al. are more experienced in campaign matters than I.

Let’s hope they’re right.

Moonbat Monitor Wields the ClueBat

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 15, 2007

Moonbat Monitor always kicks ass.  Since the moonbats are all afraid to come here to the RWRepublic due to the ass-kicking they so consistently get here, it seems they have chosen his place instead.

Enjoy it while it lasts, MM.  Once they realize you’ve got it, they’ll want to stay away.

In the meantime, Kudos to Moonbat Monitor for a job well done.

New Laughs from the Sheehag

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 13, 2007

I take a little break from the action and guess who shows up on the scene??

SHEEHAG!!!

(big surprise …)

I was going to announce on July 10th (my 50th birthday) before our Journey for Humanity that I would run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) if she didn’t put impeachment back on the table before our tour reached DC on July 23rd. Impeachment was never hers to take off the table as it is a Constitutional remedy for BushCo, not an optional smorgasbord choice. However, the story was leaked to the AP and we couldn’t keep the big announcement under wrap (Not edited – RWR)

Ahh. Running Against Pelosi. Yeah. Yeah. We’ve all heard that before.

***Yawn***

Trouble is, Sheehag wouldn’t know Pelosi’s Constitutional duty if it came up and punched her square in the face (hmm … that’s a thought …). I’m not even sure Pelosi would know her Constitutional duty under the same circumstances.

Did anyone really believe this idiotic bucket of laughs was really going away just over a month ago when she said, “I am going to take whatever I have left and go home.” I sure as fucking hell didn’t.

So now it’s time for all of us to strap in and watch as Nanci Pelosi and her ass-pal Cindy Sheehag face off in what should be one of the best Donk-on-Donk catfights thus far in history. It just doesn’t get any funnier than this.

Oh yeah. Sorry. Forgot that having said catfight result in a conservative win – hell, even a Republican win – in the election for Pelosi’s House seat would make this one of the funniest things ever to happen in American politics, bar none.

MS Certified

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 8, 2007

It’s official. RWR is now officially a Microsoft Certified Professional. I passed the exam (easier than I thought it would be, thank God), and now it’s time for a career move. Hopefully big bucks are in order, especially down the road after I complete the MCSA and MCSE exams.

This should explain why I’ve been as quite as I have in general over the last few months. This should continue into the fall, but I will endeavor to try to do something on here whenever I can, or at least when I hear or see something I think is important.

Thanks to everyone for your patience, and thanks in advance for continuing to be patient as I make this big change. Please do keep coming by and help to keep the RWRepublic alive, even if I’m not always my usual obnoxious self.

Why I was Silent on the 4th

Posted by RightWingRocker on July 6, 2007

There was about the usual traffic here at the RWRepublic the last couple of days.  I’m sure that many readers wondered why a patriot such as myself would have been silent on such a momentous occasion.

Truth be told, I had big ideas.  That is, until I saw the morning newspaper.  Then I was angry, and didn’t want to rant on America’s most important national holiday.  My own beloved home state’s legislatures, who have plenty of money to throw at their favorite little idiocies, can’t afford to give special recognition to signers of the Declaration buried in the state.

Granted, some of these men were Quakers and would find elaborate decorations of their graves objectionable, but to say you’re not going to honor these men because you don’t tax the people enough is a sham.  As far as their religious objection to honoring them in this fashion, why not simply create a historic center in their honor in their hometown?

It’s bullshit, plain and simple.
