Mark Steyn NAILS IT...

in a great piece today in the Orange County register, Steyn demonstrates how the Democratic race is shaping up as gargantuan death-match between two historical liberal guilts...with the voters left which one they think needs remedying the worst--racism or misogyny.

wow. you really should read the whole thing.

he describes the hillary vs. obama race as a new psycho version of "driving miss daisy"...guess which one is which? LOL.

his premise is that the "white boys" never had a chance, and neither did other possible peddlers of "identity politics". for example, his take on bill richardson:
Bill Richardson was the first Hispanic candidate but nobody needs a Hispanic called "Bill Richardson."
what an amazingly simple yet fascinatingly precise observation...i actually thought this myself a loooooooong time ago. i must be brilliant, too...

Gloria Steinem stumps for Hillary

proving yet again that her campaign is completely out of touch with anything even REMOTELY in touch with reality, now she trots out lunatic feminist icon gloria steinem on the campaign TEXAS???

i wonder how that's working out for the her?

steinem managed to toss scorn at mccain's P.O.W. experience-
Steinem raised McCain’s Vietnam imprisonment as she sought to highlight an alleged gender-based media bias against Clinton.

“Suppose John McCain had been Joan McCain and Joan McCain had got captured, shot down and been a POW for eight years. [The media would ask], ‘What did you do wrong to get captured? What terrible things did you do while you were there as a captive for eight years?’” Steinem said, to laughter from the audience.

McCain was, in fact, a prisoner of war for around five-and-a-half years, during which time he was tortured repeatedly. Referring to his time in captivity, Steinem said with bewilderment, “I mean, hello? This is supposed to be a qualification to be president? I don’t think so.”

Steinem’s broader argument was that the media and the political world are too admiring of militarism in all its guises.

“I am so grateful that she [Clinton] hasn’t been trained to kill anybody. And she probably didn’t even play war games as a kid. It’s a great relief from Bush in his jump suit and from Kerry saluting.”

To the Observer, Steinem insisted that “from George Washington to Jack Kennedy and PT-109 we have behaved as if killing people is a qualification for ruling people.”
for good measure, she also got in some whining over how people view racism as a more serious problem than sexism.
... “a majority of Americans want redemption for racism, for our terrible destructive racist past and so see a vote for Obama as redemptive”...“I don’t think as many want redemption for the gynocide.”
the "gynocide"???

weekend update--Romney drops out, so do I...

this blog has been seriously neglected, and i need to change that, but life's been throwing a bunch of curveballs at me lately, and my eyes aren't near as sharp as they once were.

well, so Romney dropped out the other day, 'for the sake of the party', or whatever. when i listened to the speech the other day, my heart just began to sink. i was originally behind him, then i flirted with Fred for the week or two he was officially in the running, then back to Mitt. i thought he was a real class act, and my heart and mind were moving towards becoming completely invested in his campaign. i never questioned his "conservative credentials", and his "flip-flops" on key issues were not a problem to me. hell, i've followed the same path. people grow. people change. he was moving in the right direction.

last night my band played a gig here in gainesville, FL. after a few beers, i needed some relief, so i strolled into the men's room. what i saw at the urinal made me laugh out loud....

i don't think "this picture sums it up" would be accurate...but, it sure was funny. kind of eerie, too...

wesley snipes and the IRS

about a month ago, a friend of mine went into great detail telling me about some scheme he had become involved in which involved speculation into a certain precious metal...we'll just call it "silver" for short. for the sake of brevity, let's just say that the story covered about all the bases imaginable...our money is not really worth anything, the federal reserve is unconstitutional, the only thing worth owning is what ultimately backs all world currency (i.e. - gold), the rich of the world know the truth and just support the banking system because it keeps suckers like me in line, etc...

a big part of the scenario he laid out was how the IRS can't legally take our money, because it's not constitional. there was also some underlying notion that there is a difference between being an "AMERICAN" vs being a "U.S. CITIZEN", and, apparently, if you know this difference you'll never get convicted of crimes because the constitution is the ultimate protection, and, according to his "guru" who told him all of this, you just have to pose certain questions regarding constitutional authority to the judge, and if he answers "truthfully", he'll have to throw the case out of court. it seemed really far-fetched to these ears.

but, now i'm not so sure.

around the time he was telling me this, actor wesley snipes was being brought up in federal court on charges of tax evasion, a charge he freely admitted to, though his argument was that the constitution didn't require him to pay taxes on money made in this country. i asked my friend about it. he said, "you watch, he'll walk...". he said his guru knew the lawyers involved in the case. i was laughing...this was a SLAM DUNK.

i thought my gut was completely validated when snipes tried to get the case moved out of the federal court in ocala and moved to manhattan because ocala was too "racist" to give him a fair trial. that seemed like a desparation move to me. the judge nixed that request, and the trial was on!

after the government made their case, it was the defense's turn. they had warned that they had a huge list of celebrities to testify on snipe's behalf. but, surprisingly, they decided not to call any witnesses... they simply stated that the government had not proved it's case, and sent it to what was previously referred to as the "racist" jury...hmmm.

well, yesterday the verdict was announced: Snipes aquitted of tax fraud. they did find him guilty of failing to file a tax return, but not the failure to pay the taxes.

i need to meet this guru.

Hugo Chavez admits he's a cokehead!

it's cool...he gets some kind of ice cream from castro, and he gets his coca paste from Bolivian president Evo Morales, according to his own words in a speech he gave to his National Assembly.
"I chew coca every day in the morning . . . and look how I am,'' he is seen saying on a video of the speech, as he shows his biceps to the audience.
W could never get away with something like that...

UK judges to "Three Little Pigs"-- not so fast, swine...

can you guess which religion they're trying to protect?

Fred is out of the race. Can i get my money back?

i just donated money to his campaign last weekend. i've suffered with an inbox full of Fred requests for more money and help, but i put up with it because i really thought he would build up some momentum by just hanging around. bummer. bummer!
