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.

The Media

November 6, 2009

FOX News is the good guy as I understand it? The rest are slanted to the left, is that right? Talk radio is the only fair place for real news, is that how it is? These are things I hear over and over from self-respecting conservatives. Yet I hear these same people talking about this and that on the very channels they are condemning. How funny “Two And A Half Men” is. How good the movie was the other night. How bad Anderson Cooper was last night. WTF?

Where I live you have to get cable if you want the internet. I don’t have fast internet. Why you ask? Glad you did. I don’t like the left leaning liberal media. I don’t like that they got Chairman Zero elected. I don’t like that they are dumbing down America. I don’t like that they are erroding our morality. Therefore I don’t support them. For now I have basic cable for the internet but I am working to get more than three channels with the broadcast TV and I am always searching for an alternative to cable internet. I have even looked into becoming my own Internet Service Provider (ISP). Not cheap. Also not simple.

Yes, I pay for BASIC cable. Just for the internet. I watch two and a half hours of TV a week. Jeopardy, that’s it. And I don’t always watch that. You can’t pay me to watch that damn celebrity tournament. I don’t want to call it hypocracy but what is it when you complain about something and then turn right around and shell out hard earned money to support it?

I’m not here to call names or start any movements. What I am trying to do is shine a light on a problem that exists. As long as you keep pumping money to these jackals they think they are giving you what you want. That’s it, it’s just that simple to these people. If the money stops coming in the BS will quit going out. In these tough times when you are looking for someplace to save a few dollars a month you might look at cutting back to basic cable. See if that don’t send a message?
