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.
Why Ron Paul is not a loony old manAugust 6, 2007
Which is what I heard him described as. Interestingly enough by a political blogger I tend to respect, overlooking the fact that he supports that loony middle aged man, Mitt Romney. You read a lot here about why I think Ron Paul is the wrong man for the job. You also read a lot here about what a pack of moronic orangutans the pauliacs are. You do not however read any particular disrespect for the man himself.
The reason for that is on so many issues he is dead right. Not the little ones…abortion, gun control, drug legalization, and all the other little niche issues that are rolled out every few years so we can delineate between the idiot and the cow dung that we have to choose from. On a lot of the big ones though the man is not wrong.
What kind of a hose monkey thinks we don’t need stronger borders?
Who in their right mind supports our current foreign policy agenda, and can’t find sense in a policy of non-interventionism? Of not going to war unless congress declares war?
Who doesn’t think our government wastes way to much money? Is it really more important to fight a war in Iraq than to rebuild an infrastructure that is aging as quickly as the population.
Do you really support the major trade agreements currently shaping the U.S. economic collapse? Don’t tell me about the stock market here you dolt. Tell me about Trade imbalance and deficits.
Further, if he didn’t couch it in terms of states rights I would wholeheartedly support this loony old man. My problem is I don’t think the states have any more right to dictate to my daughter whether she can have an abortion or not. It is, to all you idiots that are pro life…none of your business. It’s hard fr me to understand a party that is so much more concerned about the unborn than it is about the currently living.
It is an unfortunate reality that I am not represented by the clowns on the right. or the jokers on the left. Ron Paul is currently the only candidate that should make sense to anyone in the middle, and unfortunately he is about as electable as a drag queen. More’s the pity.
This is not an endorsement of Ron Paul. I think allowing the young to opt out of Social Security is a stupid idea designed to appease his young voters. I think a whole host of his other ideas are the wrong cure for the current problem. What makes him better than the rest of the perfectly coiffed, properly crowned nitwits on that stage today was he at least recognizes the problems we face.
