Veterans Day

1 Informed Opinion

Being as close as I am to so many Vets, it's hard sometimes to find the words. Especially so, after just burying one. From the deepest, most sincere part of me, I wish to say 'Thank you' to each and everyone who sacrifices their lives, comfort and safety for the protection of my own.

Failure of the Intellectual Justification for 'Multiculturalism'

4 Informed Opinions

Homegrown Terrorist
No critically thinking adult can argue that the attack on our uniformed hero's last Thursday was an unprovoked terrorist attack against this great nation. It was a massacre of our defenders in arguably their most weak place.


There exists, predominantly on the political left, the ideal that in order for society perfected, one must rise above the not merely the color of an individual's skin, but also our cultural behaviors. Cultural differences are not to have attention drawn to them, but are instead to be accepted without question, lest you be labeled a racist or intolerant. So strong is the belief that these 'differences' must be overlooked that even to take notice of the obvious distinctions is demonized. This bedrock principle of multiculturalism is now so pervasive within our society that it has invaded our military at the cost of 13 lives and nearly 30 injuries. Make no mistake, this act of terrorism was perpetrated by a jihadist and he was abetted in his murderous rampage by the politically correct culture that now exists within our military structure.

Our society is paralyzed with the thought of being labeled insensitive, or worse getting sued for some trumped up charge of racsim. This paralysis grips not only individuals but companies and government agencies. So unwilling or unable to act were the supervisors within the intelligence community that Nidal Malik Hasan was able to repeatedly attempt to contact Al-Qaeda, pontificate on the heroism of suicide bombers and preach that infidels should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats in front of peers within the United States Army.

So powerful is the influence of multiculturalism within the intelligence and defense communities of this nation that they are rendered ineffective to the point that we are no safer now than we were on 9/10/2001. Arguably we are much worse off. Blatantly staring us in the face was a declared threat and the FBI and Army turned a blind eye to the danger. Hasan publicly broadcast his terrorist sympathies and with the full knowledge of the FBI attempted to contact our sworn enemy during war time, and yet nothing was done to impede his efforts. Worse yet, the FBI knew of the attempts at contact and willfully turned their eyes away. Diversity has rendered our military ineffectual at discerning threats within their own ranks. It has forced us to become slaves to those we are sworn to defend against.

The 'multiculturalism is a great threat to this country' meme has existed for many years, but now in a very public and publicized way people are able to see why and how the threat will contribute to the destruction of the greatest nation upon the face of this earth.


I cannot argue with Right Girl's analysis on the placement of blame.

Blue Dog Death Wish

3 Informed Opinions

"The only thing a politician cares about more than the money, prestige, and fame is getting re-elected."
"The only principle that a Blue Dog politician is concerned with is not a principle at all, but instead a principal."

As I am sure you are now aware, HR 3692 the Affordable Health Care for America Act, passed in the House last night 220 - 215. Make no mistake, this is the closest this country has ever flirted with European style Socialism. Yet there are some positives to hold on to. Number one, Harry Reid is a spineless douche, and will never be able to organize the 60 votes he needs in the Senate to pass this on to PeeBo for signing. Number two, and far more important, is the message that Blue Dog Democrats sent to the people of the United States, and to their constituents: 'We don't care what you think.'

I guess, in order to fully understand the impact that this legislation is going to have on the Blue Dog community it is important to first understand what a 'Blue Dog' is. Emphasis, mine.
The Democratic Blue Dog Coalition is a group of currently 52 moderate and conservative Democratic Party members of the United States House of Representatives, first formed in 1995. The Blue Dog Coalition describes itself as a group of moderate-to-conservative Democrats committed to financial and national security, favoring compromise and bipartisanship over ideology and party discipline. In 2006, Blue Dog candidates such as Heath Shuler and Brad Ellsworth were elected in conservative-leaning districts, ending years of Republican dominance in these areas.

Blue Dog House Website:
The fiscally conservative Democratic Blue Dog Coalition was formed in 1995 with the goal of representing the center of the House of Representatives and appealing to the mainstream values of the American public. The Blue Dogs are dedicated to a core set of beliefs that transcend partisan politics, including a deep commitment to the financial stability and national security of the United States.

So, what do we have here? We have a group of 52 individuals who proclaim themselves to be fiscally conservative, and who strive to rise above 'partisan politics' to put the best interests of this country first. However, 28 members of the so called fiscal conservative Blue Dogs voted for the largest expansion of government in the history of the United States. They voted for the bill that will grow the government somewhere between $2,400,000,000,000 and $3,000,000,000,000. So who are these fiscal superhero's? Who are the 28 defenders of our nation's wealth and fiscal sovereignty?

  2. Baca, CA
  3. Berry, AR
  4. Bishop, GA
  5. Boswell, IA
  6. Cardoza, CA
  7. Carney, PA
  8. Cooper, TN
  9. Costa, CA
  10. Cuellar, TX
  11. Dahlkamper, PA
  12. Donnelly, IN
  13. Ellsowrth, IN
  14. Giffords, AZ
  15. Harman, CA
  16. Hill, IN
  17. Michaud, ME
  18. Mitchell, AZ
  19. Moore, KS
  20. Murphy, PA
  21. Pomeroy, ND
  22. Salazar, CO
  23. Loretta Sanchez, CA
  24. Schiff, CA
  25. Scott, GA
  26. Space, OH
  27. Thompson, CA
  28. Wilson, OH

These are the politicians who profess to the American people that they stand for fiscal conservatism, while simultaneously shoving the knife of health care legislation into our backs and telling us, 'it's good for you.'

You might be saying, 'Well, at least 24 Blue Dogs stood strong and voted 'No.'' Ha! Go back to the top of this post and read those quotes again. These spineless punks are possibly the worst lot of sleazy, political whores in the United States today. You'd be mistaken to think that these 24 stood up against the fiscally disastrous health care bill on principle. Paralyzed with the overwhelming fear of losing re-election, these gutless wusses, crawled in to Nancy Pelosi's office and begged to be allowed to vote against the bill. They've bucked their party so that at the end of the day, they could stand in front of their constituents and proclaim themselves to be the fiscal conservatives they campaigned as. These 24 members are losers who are incapable of supporting the party position for fear of being ousted during the re-elections next year. They are neither principled nor fiscally conservative, they are merely double talking politicians.

So what are we to take away from this, then? Blue Dogs, despite all their barking about fiscal conservatism, are nothing more than big government, liberty-hating Democrats. You're response to this situation is clearly laid before you, VOTE THEM OUT!

We have a message for the members of Congress, Blue Dog or not, we're coming for you and we will not sleep until you are nothing more than has-been, former politicians.

'Old' Is The New 'New!'

1 Informed Opinion

Yes, even though I harbor deep disdain for the Gawker Media websites, I am going to link one of Jalopnik's posts to make a point. Dodge Big Wigs apparently gave themselves stiffys over the design of their new Charger (picture below).

The only problem is that it looks remarkably similar to this 1999 conceptual design of the Dodge Charger R/T...

Mind you, Dodge is not the first car company to do this. Regardless of how big a fan of the new Camaro I might be, I cannot help but admit the striking similarities bewteen this 1999 GTO Concept car:

And this conceptual drawing of the new Camaro...

If all it takes to be a new car designer is access to old concept cars, I'll do the job for half of what Chevy and Dodge are paying their guys now.

For more on the future of the automobile, be sure to check out the Conservative Hideout 2.0's post.

Now, I knew that the White House was inhabited by some low life scum, but this is really taking their petty war with the Chamber of Commerce a little far, wouldn't you say?

The Real Take Away From Election 2009

2 Informed Opinions

Frankly, there is only one real take away from the election last night. Blue Dogs are skeerd, period. Regardless of the spin that the MSM tried to give the election results, the electorate voted their pocketbooks. One question for you; who is in charge of the economy? That's right, the libtards.

The Obama train is no longer the train to Democratic shangri la. Blue dogs understand that if they want any shot at re-election, they must NOT vote for the Healthcare debacle currently threatening a floor vote tomorrow or Friday. Politicians live for two things, earmarks and re-election. Rest assured they will not give up either without a fight.

Back In The Saddle

2 Informed Opinions

I apologize for being away for so long, but the death of a family member takes it's toll. Especially the care for those immediate family members who cannot care for themselves.

I'm back now, and the gloves are off. Let's get this party started.
