Steely Eyed Resolve

March 22, 2010

As I listened to a local talk show on the way home from work this is the phrase that impressed me. Steely eyed resolve. The local talk show guy used these words to describe the opposition he was seeing to Obamacare. I just want to insert this here, when I typed Obamacare spell check came up with a suggestion for a correct spelling. Macabre. Isn’t that odd? Anyway back to steely eyed resolve.

Last night when I heard that this abortion had passed (pun intended) I feared the worst. I envisioned armies of opposition forces dragging legislators from their offices and using the tar and feather treatment. I really feared more violence than the bricks thrown through the windows at the Democratic headquarters.

Then, this morning, as I was on my way to work I hear on the radio the organized, peaceful opposition and I remember who I am dealing with here. These people are conservatives. They don’t resort to violence when every little thing doesn’t go their way. Now I just want to say this truly is a great Presidency. He did what Reagan, both Bush’s, Carter, and Clinton could not. He made me a registered Republican. As a Libertarian of thirty plus years I was so impressed that I went in and registered as a Republican.

At first I felt sad. Then all day I wondered if I should switch back to no party. Then I heard it. This statement by a local talk show host. People are lining up against this with “steely eyed resolve”. Right then and there I knew I had made the right decision. If a few thousand people did this today what kind of message is that going to send to DC? If tens of thousands did this  what will they think?

Since I have been lined up against this from the beginning, as anyone who knows me personally will tell you with steely eyed resolve, I am pleased with this development. Just thought I’d let you know how the opposition is going to work this. With steely eyed resolve. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Obama’s War

September 22, 2009

In 1965 when Johnson funnelled troops into Viet Nam he thought he was right, but he actually made one serious error after another from that point on. Chairman Zero’s plans to do the same in Afghanistan are very similar. On top of that he’s flopping all over the place. He’s talking out the other side of his head about less troops and more counter terrorism operations. Personally, I wouldn’t say anything until I had a clear plan, but I guess that’s why I’m not the Chairman of the party.

I still don’t understand his fixation with this region. He keeps spouting about the taliban and what not, while having ramadan celebrations at the White House. He describes this war as the nation’s foremost military priority which to him is I quess like our neighbors kids oboe recital is to us. The U.S. commander in Afghanistan says there is an urgent need to revise our strategy. An “urgent need”. But of course Chairman Zero has more pressing issues to address.

This whimpy attitude toward wartime decisions is characteristic of the libs as demonstrated by Kennedy at the Bay of Pigs, Johnson in Viet Nam, Carter in Iran and Clinton in Somalia. What makes it worse is the tendancy to run hot and cold on the issue of the war itself. First they are gung ho to roll in and do the deed. Then they lose their taste for it and pull funding until they can’t stand to see anymore American lives lost so they roll back to the gung ho stage for a short period before they second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) guess themselves.

Personally, I think we should just pull everyone out of everywhere, close our borders for twenty years and become self sufficient. The gubmint just makes me sick. To check out the story from the Las Vegas Sun on this click below.

Presidents

June 15, 2009

Has it occurred to anyone that the Founding Fathers seemed to be the kind of people that you could relate to, speak to, maybe even be friendly with? I wouldn’t even have minded being in business with Franklin or Jefferson. That’s just the kind of people they seemed to be. I realize that history may have been somewhat skewed but they had a long way to go to measure up to the crop of political refuse we have today.

As long as I can remember the President has been some kind of jerk. Always something to hide or something they should’ve admitted up front. I don’t really remember Ike. Clinton and Kennedy were womanizers. Nixon “may” have had knowledge of wrong doing? Johnson, Carter, Ford and both Bush’s were just weak and/or silly. Reagan was hard to read but he seemed somewhat quirky and really started the untouchable attitude that Presidents have taken in the last few decades.

Nixon was also scary and intimidating. You can’t talk to them and you wouldn’t want to if you could because you never know what’s going to happen to you if you say something they don’t want to hear. And now we have chairman zero (Obama). He’s nothing more than a rabble rousing street thug from Chicago. He associates with known terrorists and criminals and he’s attempting to rule by intimidation. I’m afraid to even e-mail him. He makes me nostalgic for Nixon.
