A note from Ron Paul August 22

August 22, 2007

Yep, he wrote us a note.  For or against, it is a damn fine read.  He talks about taxes, happy warriors, togetherness, and  monetary policy.  You can see why his followers are so taken by him.  He doesn’t really spell it out, so I thought I would.

Lets start with happy warriors.  Anyone who has ever written a post that contradicted Dr. Paul knows what a hoot this is.  He has some of the most rabid people on the planet supporting him.  they will attack your children, your dead parents, your dog…anything to get an edge.  Ron needs to write a negative blog about himself and see the responses he gets from the pauliac tribesmen.

   The tax thing.  He doesn’t want to replace the IRS with a new tax.  He claims our problem is inflation and an unsound monetary policy that keeps us on a rollercoaster of financial uncertainty.  Here’s what he leaves out.  He wants the states to tax the holy living hell out of us.  He doesn’t want a big federal government, he wants huge monolithic state governments, just like the constitution envisions.  You wouldn’t be taxed less under a Ron Paul regime, you would merely be taxed by someone else.

Freedom brings us all together.  Again, he would be right.  Except his position does not create freedom.  Freedom is not a derivative of the state.  It is, according to his theological ethos I would assume, god granted.  Yet he wants the state to control everything that the fed now controls.  Ron Paul doesn’t envision a nation where abortion isn’t legislated.  He pictures a country where abortion is controlled by the state.   I’m sorry.  His policies would not make me a freer person.  Heres an example of what I mean.  My dog loves going for walks with me.  It’s because she behaves for me and I don’t have to put her on a leash.  She hates going for walks with any of the kids.  In fact they don’t go for walks they go for drags.  She loves the kiddoes, but she hates the leash.  IT DOESN’T APPEAR TO MATTER TO HER WHO IS HOLDING IT.   Ron Paul doesn’t offer you a chance to lose the leash.  He offers you the opportunity to have someone else hold it.  That isn’t freedom.

Unconstitutional government has created…  the guy is always half right.  He doesn’t mention that unconstitutional government has also granted us stability that there is no way the 50 states legislating themselves ever will.  He merely wishes to change the problems we face.  50 powerful little pigs trying to get all the slop for themselves will create a nation that feeds on itself.  At least under the current method we are feeding on others. 

   I’m not trying to change any minds here.  I’m just pointing out the fact that while it sure looks rosie when he says it, the reality could well be an entirely different thing.

New Rasmusson Poll proves me right; all candidates wildly unpopular

August 22, 2007

  I hate to say it, but I told you so.  I’ve been harping against the two party system because it is far to limiting.  I think this poll proves me right.  Well, of those listed anyway.  For whatever reason Ron Paul isn’t listed but John McCain and Sam Brownback are.  I’m sorry, but in a runoff between Ron and either of those clowns it would be a hands down victory for Ron.

   Not one single top tier candidate has higher positive numbers than negatives.  Thats right…not one.  More people would never consider voting for each than would vote for them.  This proves we don’t like them.  They suck.  Our opinion of them may be better than our opinion of the current president, but by numbers far beyonf the margin of error we do not like any of them.

    What I really like is that a greater percentage of us dislike the front runners than can be imagined.  Both Romney and Clinton are over 40% negatives.  Thats incredible.  It’s really outrageous to think that it very well could come downn to these two, and we already can’t stand them.

   We need more parties.  We need more choices, and we need mopre differences.  The deocrats aren’t crazy about their candidates, and neither are the conservatives.  Both have at least one candidate that can’t even find the beaten path (Kucinich and Paul), and of course neither is in this poll.  Time for a wholesale change in the way we do politics.


Maliki and Chavez..cut one loose and the other up

August 22, 2007

    I only read this article because I think Maliki is stump dumb, and deserves whatever happens to him when we withdraw.  I haven’t seen him travelling to Sunni led nations trying to get them to pressure the Sunni faction in Iraq back into the government.  Instead, he has wandered from Iran to Syria, the two nations fomenting the insurrectionists in Iraq, and by all accounts assisting to destabilize the Iraqi government.

    I agree with him though.  I agree that it is not for us to dictate to his government, and I agree he can find other friends.  therefore it only makes sense that we go ahead and get out of there and let him do so.  He’ll be either dead or Amadinejads bitchboy in a week.  The only thing keeping Iraq anywhere near stable is the American military.  The Iraqi parliament refuses to make any tough decisions, and there languishing and vacationing has wasted whatever security the surge was supposed to buy them.

   It’s time to let them take care of themselves.  They haveo ver 300,000 security forces, and it can hardly be our fault that they are inept and cowardly.  Let the dogs have it.  It serves us no useful purpose anyway.  In fact, I’m for withdrawing for the middle east entirely, and just telling them that any nation that is found to have supported or harbored terrorists will be attacked with tactical nukes.  Fuck ’em.  Whether anyone likes it or not, we’re a fairly formidable nation when we don’t have our head squarely lodged in our asses, and its about time we started exhibiting that.  Who really gives a rats ass if Iraq  turns into another Cambodia?  If we need oil so bad we can always head south and pummel that petty dictator Hugo Chavez.  He wants to nationalize Venezuela, and I’m thinking we should give it statehood.

   It’s more than a little disconcerting, and totally disgusting to see our leaders pandering to these petty provincial cocksuckers.  They have no power, their nations are insignificant, and the sum total of benefit the world gains from these nations even existing is zero.  Neither has ever done one thing to improve the global situation, and both are fast becoming major liabilities to peace and stability.  Blame Bush if you want, but Iraq was a cesspool before bush, it is a shit pit during Bush, and it will be a scat pond after Bush.  Shit floats, so we can leave and they’ll be just fine.

   In closing, let me add, Mr. Bush says we are killing 1500 terrorists and subversives a month.  Thats because you’re a nancy boy, Mr. President.  This should’ve been done and over a long time ago, but you don’t have the testicles that Harry Truman had.


sex in the news

August 22, 2007

  Who says sex doesn’t sell? all these stories are from today, and are related to the s-e-x- thing.

Woohoo, a virgin story…looking for work Jessie?  You test virgins for Ration Reality so you have experience.  Pretty interesting story about how the other half wants to live.

  Did you like the virgins?  How about a little nudity?  Naked women with hammers.  Sounds like a party…there is no truth to the rumor that this woman was a Ron Paul supporter still celebrating his 5th place finish.

dwarf penis anyone?  This guy goes toe to toe with a vacuum cleaner.  Freaking hilarious.   Gotta love the Scots.  I really liked “in an act that went horribly awry” 

whats a sex article without some gay sex?  This one isn’t funny.  This one is incredible  Suck a dick get life in prison?  wow…  if you check this out read the names of thel inks on the right…a “gay names” list…like a pedophile registry?

Hey, we even got strippers.  The strip club From the Sopranos is auctioning off the stripper poles from the show, along with other sundry goodies.

and i was gonna do a story about a lot of people getting fu@ked, but all I could find was this.

Ron Paul, Congressional gallup poll, and HIV

August 22, 2007

   Yeah, I know, but those are the three that caught my eye.  I never promised variety, reason, or intellect, and I see no reason to at this late date.

   Ron Paul isn’t from a news story.  It’s from my commenters.  Some of them lack the tone of the zealot, but it’s an underlying current with all of them.  Some are incredibly nice people, but I get the feeling they can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want Ron Paul.  For me it’s easy.  I’ve known obstructionist people all of my life.  They have a body of work that consists not of what they’ve done, but rather what they kept from being done.  That’s Ron Paul.  20 years in congress, and the things he kept from being done far outweigh the other. 

    I realize there is the logical explanations.  I don’t really care.  If you Initiate and vote for term limit legislation maybe from an ethical standpoint you should limit your own term.  I’m not going to bore you with each issue stance.  I’ve done that already.  You can read it anywhere.  Ron Paul doesn’t get things done, he keeps them from being done.

   The congress poll is delightful.  Congress is as unpopular as they have been since the early nineties.  Barack Obana, Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul, Joe Biden, Christopher Dodd, Dennis Kucinich, Tom Tancredo, Sam Brownback, Duncan Hunter, and maybe more are all members in good standing of the most hated organization since the KKK.

   They suck would be a good explanation for this.  Trying to pass an immigration bill that nobody wanted except big business and politicians was sheer chutzpah, and then ignoring the voters when it came time to put their foot down on Iraq was absolute stupidity.  These are high profile issues, and these clowns managed to displease everyone.  Maybe what the masses want is something done?

    and on to HIV.  Washing right after sex rather than waiting 10 minutes or more increases your chances of catching HIV.The Ugandan study follows over 2300 uncircumcised males to see if washing can be a substitute for circumcision(I”ll come back to that).  What they Inadvertantly discovered was that washing immediately made you 4 times more likely to catch HIV than if you wait 10 minutes..  Now the funny thing here, is back in december 2006 the Ugandan president came out harshly against a study that showed if you were circumcised you were 1/2 as likely to catch HIV.  It appears research is going full bore in the third world, and it also appears that politics may be playing apart.  I think this wasn’t the result they hoped for.
