Good Monday morning, everyone! My body chrono is completely thrown off by the time change, BTW.
As someone who wakes up every day at the same time (even on weekends), I can tell you that this whole DST thing is a crock. I haven’t been able to save evenone moment of daylight for later use. “Time in a bottle”, my ass.
This week in the chamber of horrors, we’ve got a lot of slime to wade through, so pull your ISO suits on and let’s see what floats to the top in the charnel-house of wingnuttery that is Free Republic!
First up –Freepers on the Jindal trainwreck:

Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians, Blue Dogs and yes, even PUMAs, deserve better than we got tonight.
If the Republicans are going to have a win in 2010 and 2012, we better
have people who are better than Jindal’s handlers tonight.
That’s not pessimism, it’s realism.
You ain’t kidding there, brother.
Back to the drawing board, GOP!!!!
The suit was ill-fitting and the bold stripped tie was annoying (and I
don’t know anything about fashion).
I would add that someone needs to teach the GOP about youtube and other
networking sites. From what I can tell, there’s still no “official” GOP
rebuttal video posted.
I hate to be the one to break it to you, Big Monkey, but thatwas the official GOP rebuttal.
If by candidate you mean someone to pit against 0bama,then, yes, I’m propping up most other potential candidates.
Jindal might govern well in his state but he will NEVER beat 0bama, never in a million years.
That was bad.
speech ‘completing a redemptive journey’: with Jindal kegitimizing
Obama why does he need the MSM?
In addition it is also a prime example of ‘white guilt’ that the GOP must overcome if they are to win 2010 and 2012.
So Jindal, who is Indian by descent, is demonstrating an example of “white guilt”??
Amazing. You need a scorecard to tell at any given time what these nutcases regard as “white”, I guess.
It wasn’t too long ago that people like Freepers were calling them “Wogs”.
An unmitigated disaster.
People who say “What about the substance, he had that” can pat
themselves on the back for being about substance if they want, that’s
not the issue. If no one listens to you, it doesn’t matter what you
The country likes Obama’s style. Like it or not, Jindal looked like the
same old thing, someone not prepared for the spotlight who thinks he
can overcome inexperience by being fake-friendly. He came off like a
hopped-up Mr. Rogers, and as sincere as a used car salesman during a
Going Out of Business sale.
One can claim none of this matters, but it does, big time. I don’t
think Sarah Palin will be the nominee in 2012, but seeing this video
showed you how a genuine communicator does it–and it ain’t like
Jindal. Palin is comfortable in front of the camera and talking to the
televiion audience. Whatever the issues are that will keep her from
being the next nominee, that ain’t one of them.
If we learned anything about the media from the last 9 years it’s that
if you aren’t a good communicator, you’ve lost the message war, and if
you’ve lost the message war, you’ve lost, period.
Jindal is off my list for potential 2012 nominee. Which leaves…no one.
Can’t add much to that one.
Don’t forget – Rush Limbaugh referred to him as “the next
Ronald Reagan.” Newt Gingrich called him “far and away” the best possible running mate for John McCain.
And Michelle Malkin has gone so far as to label him the “future of the GOP.”
See you guys after the jumperoonie..
Well, what’s next in this drum? VirgoTex, could you please hand me the titanium tongs? This one looks slippery.
Ah yes – it’s Wolverines in the lions’ den!
Christian anti Defamation Commision ^
Posted onTuesday, February 24, 2009 4:16:33 PM bymainestategop
When is the last time you saw $10 Million dollars being spent on
special programs in schools that taught school-age children about
Judeo-Christian values and why they are important in our laws today?
Better yet, funded by the Government? Well, I can answer that for you.
But, the Government sure is interested in getting some bills passed
that will do just that for certain select minority groups such as
homosexuals while putting Christians in prison. $10 Million dollars in
funding will be allocated annually for the administration of hate crime
prevention including special programs about this in our schools.
IF…the most recent David Ray Ritcheson Hate Crimes Prevention Act of
2009 (H.R. 262) coupled with the David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act
of 2009 (H.R. 256) are passed!
So, besides the double-standard, why should you be fuming and taking
action before you even finish reading this? Because these two bills
that are going to be sent to President Barack Obama’s desk will silence
Christians from speaking against homosexuality or teaching our children
that it is wrong. You would quite literally be committing a Federal
crime and convicted. If these bills get passed, not only will
Christians be silenced — but, the government is scheduled to swoop in
with $10 Million dollars to drive a stake right into the heart of
Christians by making sure your children hear and are taught everything
against Judeo-Christian beliefs.
The two bills that I am talking about are the David Ray Ritcheson Hate
Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 (H.R. 262) coupled with the David Ray
Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 (H.R. 256). These two bills were
just introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee and are expected to be
signed by President Barack Obama who has supported this legislation at
the state level in the past. These two bills CANNOT get to President
Obama’s desk! No way Christians! You must act now if you want to
continue practicing your Christian faith and teaching it to your
children. Sign the petition

While you’re here, please consider making a monthly donation to The
Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. We absolutely could not fight for
your Christian freedoms the way we do without your support. It will
become harder and harder to fight against Christian defamation when the
opposition is so well-funded by law.
Let’s act now before it is too late!
And I don’t know enough about you, but youmay be a theocracy-loving nutcase with delusions of persecution.

will have to turn you down due to the religious aspect, at which time
you can claim hate crimes being perpetrated against you and your

Except that the Judge might ask you to go down on another guy in court to prove yourboner fides.
Gives the legal term “discovery” a whole new meaning, no?
Rub our faces in it.
Come on, hit us again. Harder!
This is what we need to finally wake up and take back our country.
Every single foreign enemy we ever faced first thought we would be a
push over. That our courage and strength was gone for good. But they
were wrong. For every Pearl Harbor we gave them back a Hiroshima.
And now we have domestic enemies who think the same thing. Too bad for
them. They will over play their hand. They will go too far. And then
the Day of Reckoning will be upon them.
And many of us will give them no mercy.
Oh, blow me, Rambo. You couch-potato commandos talk a good fight-the-power, but when it comes down to it, the only person you’re likely to kill is yourself. Or your wife. Who would probably thank you for not having to listen to your “the libral niggers are coming for us” crap anymore. Go suck on an exhaust pipe, because the only thing you’ll ever shoot off is your mouth.
Oh, and I can probably outshoot you with either hand. Just so ya know.
What’s bubbling to the surface now?
Oh –Freepersfinallyfigure out that they were played by the neocons!

Listening to neocon mastermind Richard Perle, there’s a sense of
falling down the rabbit hole. Perle was the ideological architect of
the Iraq war and of the Bush doctrine of preemptive attack. But at a
forum of foreign policy intellectuals, hosted by National Interest
magazine, he created a fantastic world in which:
1. Perle is not a neoconservative. 2. Neoconservatives do not exist. 3.
Even if neoconservatives did exist, they certainly couldn’t be blamed
for the disasters of the past eight years.
“There is no such thing as a neoconservative foreign policy,” Perle
informed the gathering. So what about the 1996 report he co-authored,
widely seen as the cornerstone of neoconservative foreign policy? “My
name was on it because I signed up for the study group,” Perle
explained. “I didn’t approve it. I didn’t read it.”
And the two letters to the president, signed by Perle, giving a “moral”
basis to Middle East policy and demanding military means to remove
Saddam Hussein? “I don’t have the letters in front of me,” Perle
Perle was chairman of Bush’s Defense Policy Board—and a leading
cheerleader for the Iraq war—–predicting that the effort would take
few troops and last only a few days, and that Iraq would pay for its
The president clearly took the advice of Perle and his fellow neocons.
It gets kinda nasty after that – click on the link if you want to see the rest.
Reactions from the Freeperati? You might be surprised.
exposes this punkneo as a charlatan. What’s more outrageous, Perle’s
words evidence his elitist, unmitigated contempt for American and
Americans, and for those who dare reveal his self-absorbed pomposity
and falsity. What does this guy do for a living the working class
taxpayer might ask? He seems to do nothing but roam the world, write
stupid books, and make idiotic statements. Oh wait—-let’s not forget
Perle is going into the oil business in Iraq—–thanks to his war
profiteering—the trillions of tax dollars (and rivers of young blood)
deposited there. Nice to know US taxpayers made the area safe for
Perle’s business ambitions (gag).
It would be a challenge to determine who is more nauseating—Poobah Perle or his comrades in arms.
and 2005 I had a great deal of respect for these “Neocons” (Perle and
entourage). I appreciated their disdain for the UN, the EU and them
staunchly making the case against Saddam (I consider his removal
right). But Perle and his groomed protege Chalabi are nothing but
frauds. Opportunists who denounced the war effort the moment it didn’t
go their way.
Perle and Ledeen lost me completely the moment I learned of their
cooperation with the terrorist Islamomarxist MEK cult.
The punkneos cut their politics to fit their hidden agenda. The “Uriah Heep Factor” kicked in big time.
Conservatives were aware that the “Uriah Heeps” were plotting and
planning to co-opt conservatives for their own hidden agendas——and
were obsessed with religious cleansing of the Repub Party. The Uriah
Heeps manhandled social conservatives—-and diluted the party for
their own self-serving agendas.
Dickens’ Uriah Heep was notorious for wielding undue influence, a
bounder who was always planning and plotting, ingratiating himself into
the confidence of others. Uriah was obsequious, manipulative, and
wormed his way into positions of influence. Uriah was a consummate con
man, and not to be trusted. Translated into the language of the popular
culture, the Uriah Heeps manipulated and used conservatives to advance
their own agendas and ambitions.
The neopunks smelled the power of conservatives, and grew in their
desire to exercise control over the Republican party, and to kick
so/con conservatives to the curb.
The Uriah Heeps’ sense of entitlement fed on the victories of others.
They become more and more power-hungry and will deploy their
self-serving strategies to selfish purposes. These charlatans bring
harm to conservative interests, to the rights of the unborn, religious
freedom, the restoration of American culture.
At their very core—-the Uriah Heeps evince an elitist, unmitigated
contempt for religious conservatives, and all we stand for, but held
their noses, and co-opted the party for their self-serving purposes.

their disastrous obsession with foreign warmaking. We don’t need to go
looking for trouble halfway across the world when we have plenty of
enemies right here.
are running for cover. I am hopeful the GOP will disavow them and their
disastrous obsession with foreign warmaking…
More than that—-conservatives will NOT back any candidate UNLESS they publicly disavow neocons.
Despite Perle’s convenient “memory lapse”—-these connivers led the US over a cliff into Iraq.
In any other country, the pukes would be kaput—put in front of a firing squad.
Why, they sound absolutely upset at being used, don’t they?
Of course, they were all singing “Bomb bomb Iran” four years ago…

Posted onWednesday, February 25, 2009 9:02:30 AM bywilco200
Was is just me or did the entire GOP just throw in the towel last night?
the moment Obama walked into the chamber, until the last talking head
went to sleep, it seemed like the Republican party just decided to
give. Up I couldn’t believe my eyes or ears.
As Obama walked
into the chamber I saw Republicans lunge towards the aisle, straining
for to touch the leaders garment. It was a cross between Jesus entering
Jerusalem and the Beatles hitting the tarmac in the US for the first
As Obama spoke, the Republican rose in applause multiple
times – even when the One spoke with complete contradiction to
conservative principles – like smaller government, less spending.
a single Republican “cough bullshit” when Obama spoke of creating 90%
or 3.5 million jobs in the private sector and then proceed to list –
cops, teachers, global warming researches and others as examples of
“private sector jobs”
Following the speech it got even worse…
Bobby Jindal gave a lame “republican” response filled mostly with
adulation of Obama and a determination to work with the new leader.
There was scantly a mention of conservative principles, why they are
better for liberty or how the Obama administration was destroying the
fabric of what made America great.
Then it was on to a parade
of Republican Senators and Congressmen who outright refused to
criticize the Obama plan to change America as we know it. To provide
entitlements for every Liberal constituency on the backs of taxpaying
American citizens, to nationalize healthcare, to dismantle the
military, to take away individual liberty and to tax us into
One glaring example was Hannity’s interview of
Eric Cantor. I always thought Cantor was one of the stronger
conservative voices, he seem to show some bright spots over the
Porkulus fight. But last night, it seemed like the Twilight Zone.
Hannity gave Cantor softball after softball to knock Obama’s socialist
power grab out of the park – Cantor would have none of it. He just kept
talking about how it’s a new day, we can;t focus on the fights of the
past, the Porkulus is behind us now, we need to reach across the aisle,
offer solutions, etc, etc. Hannity eventually got frustrated, gave up
and sent the guy on his way.
This RINO behavior is something I’d expect from McCain, Spector, Collins, etc, but Cantor? Jindal? Who’s next Tom Delay?
I finally shut off the boobs on tube and went to bed, hoping it was all just a bad dream.
It was not.
morning, I saw Judd Gregg all but apologize to Obama for not letting
him down. He would not name ONE thing he disagreed with the President
on, just what he agreed on. UGH!
I’m beginning to thing Eric Holder was right — this nation (and Republican’s in particular) are a bunch of cowards.
replaced with people who give a rat’s a**. We need to get serious and
make it known that this will not be tolerated – especially during this
perilous time. I am sick listening to people who I thought were my
friends buy up this crap hook line and sinker. Sometimes I wonder if
I’m in a different universe. This is CRAZY!!

In a sign that the world may be coming to an end, the head of the Republican party says he wants a mic check. Word? Word.
Michael Steele, the head of Republican National Committee, wants his party to become the Grand Ol’ Hip-Hop Party. Respect.
new head of the party, and the first African-American to ever fill his
chair, wants to spin an “off the hook” public relations blitz into
“urban-suburban hip-hop settings” in hopes of getting young Latinos,
African-Americans and others down with the good beats to rep the
elephant and to rep him hard, son.
“We need to uptick our image
with everyone, including one-armed midgets,” he said during a recent
media blitz where he announced the idea with a joke. He was serious
about the idea. He was joking about the one-armed midget part.
told the Washington Times that the party needs a complete makeover the
appeals to young voters. A key demographic that they lost out on during
the last election,.
“We missed the mark in the past, which is
why we are in the crapper now,” he said. “We need messengers to really
capture that region – young, Hispanic, black, a cross-section. We want
to convey that the modern-day GOP looks like the conservative party
that stands on principles. But we want to apply them to urban-suburban

being a RINO. I scoffed at their kookiness. Joke’s on me.

Here is the text of an email I sent the RNC yesterday:
I’m sorry but I am withdrawing my pledge and will not donate a
single dime to the RNC until you can assure me that no funds will be
remitted to Specter, Snowe, and Collins. Because of them, my children
will suffer an unconscionable burden of debt in support of a liberal
social agenda. Until the RNC denounces them, I cannot support you.
Moreover, Steele also needs to understand that his disparaging comments
on CNN towards Rush Limbaugh are personally insulting to Conservatives
like myself. If the RNC wakes up and embraces Rush’s views, which I
support, and denounces the RINO’s, I will consider reinstating future
pledges. Until then, please REMOVE me from your mailing list and cease
soliciting contributions from me. Based on the views I’ve read and seen
espoused by Chairman Steele, I consider myself a CONSERVATIVE. not a
