The Obama Groupies at MSDNC have put up a countdown clock until the Dear Leader's Press Conference. Ace suggests this is so Chris Matthews can time his "moment of release."

Guantanamo detainees treated better in Texas than FDLS mothers

Breastfeeding infants removed form their mothers on a prank call is OK for Christian families even after the state found no girls under 16 had been married.Their was a group trial were media reports were presented as evidence and rebuttal snot allowed.

On the other hand, Islamic terrorists get halal meals. Imagine the outcry if someone tried to try them in one large group?

Moonbat Author of Why Mommy Is a Democrat has penned a sequel.

I liked this comment: "WHY DADDY IS A CONSERVATIVE
By Herr Morgenholz. Chapter 1: Because he's not a gullible douchebag. Now go clean your f--king room."

V the K,

You, sir, win at life. That is HANDS-DOWN, the absolute best clip to sum up nearly anything and everything that IS and COMES FROM the Obama administration. I award you a lifetime membership to the Awesome Squad.

Why daddy is a Conservative...

... because in every relationship, there is, essentially, someone who gives and someone who takes. Don't take that sexually. Conservatives work so Liberals don't have to. We can't all be consumers - providers are needed.

In reference to the Deathcare plan.

A survey by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) found that 20 percent of its respondents would simply shut down if they were faced with this choice. They couldn't afford it. One out of four said they would replace full-time workers with part-time workers in order to avoid having to pay anything.

Talk about your Rocky Mountain High. Research indicates that Eagle Valley, Colorado,(home to the glitzy resort of Vail) teenagers are abusing drugs and alcohol more than the national average. Apparently, the moonbatty parents of moonbatty teenagers in Eagle County, Colorado don't give a rat's ass about their children abusing drugs and alcohol. Here is what a social services counselor reports:

.... “she can’t believe how many parents don’t consider underage drinking or marijuana use a big deal. Parents often tell police officers they don’t see why it’s “such a big deal” that their kid is getting in trouble for pot or underage drinking.”

Another counseler reports that a teenage client showed up intoxicated in her office shortly after was out for the day.

So, have we arrived at the time in this society that moonbats are raising “free range children”? What ever happened to parents teaching their children morals, values and principles that make their children and, Lord willing, valuable adult members of society? Well, we couldn’t have that! Moonbats teaching their children morals, values and principles might ruin little Suzy’s or Tommy’s self esteem and that just might cause years of irreversible social destruction. Instead, what we now have are a bunch of parasitic leaches that know their social service counselor better than their own mothers and fathers. That’s part of the problem, they are “mothers” and “fathers” and not “moms” and “dads.” Are these “parents” that apathetic, selfish and wrapped up in their own selves that they don’t care about and love their children enough to know that drug and substance abuse can lead to problems?

Mother of pearl, I sound like I was born in the 1950s! That’s because I was born in the 1950s---a proud member of the baby boomer generation that was raised by a different class of parents that we have today. Some of these disconnected “parents” are my age, and some even a lot younger. Are these "parents" rebelling against their parents for teaching them morals, values and principles? These “parents” will some day have a rude awakening. Maybe they will awaken when they see their Suzy or Tommy lying on a pulled out drawer in the morgue with a coroner’s tag tied to their big toe. By then, it will be way too late.

It's sad that the youths of America are such wastes. I'm 22 and it makes me feel old when I have to say such things.

My parents weren't strict but knew how to "lay down the law" when I did or thought about doing something stupid. Needless to say, I learned very quickly but I know some parents that didn't even know where their children were in the wee-hours of the night. Parenting has lost its way and the far scarier problem is that the stupid kid raised by irresponsible parents are quickly becoming parents themselves.

When are we going to start holding parents responsible for thier child's stupidity?

Hell, I'm 22 and I turned out normal (well abnormal compared to today's standards of indecency and idiocy).

I just hope that their is a brand new wave of classic conservatism (like mine) that will come forth and wrangle in the stupidity that is slated to turn this country into a real-life recreation of Idiocracy. We are heading down a path of ignorance and shame that is scarring and will scar the future of this once great country.

Intimations of Destiny Part Two: To Nuke Or Not To Nuke

Please see “Intimations of Destiny Part One: The Paper Tiger Surrenders in Pieces,” That article focused on America’s inexorable slide into history’s dustbin due not to any fundamental systemic flaws or weaknesses but to an absence of resolve and to a widespread gut fear of winning our wars at all costs. Our fate, our future as a nation, is inextricably joined to the question of whether we are committed to winning our wars. We cannot expect to continue as the last super power unless we do.


The “War is Hell” observation of Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman provided no great insight into the nature of war since it merely stated the obvious. Any student of warfare and, more so, anyone who has endured the horrors of war could attest to its hellishness.

Far more hellish for nations and their inhabitants are the consequences of losing a war, especially when losing is a direct result of a failure of commitment to victory and when the opposing force has no regard for human life and the “civilities” of modern warfare.

That is precisely the road America is travelling today, with a savage foe waiting at the dead end, eager to wreak a grisly vengeance.

Gen. Douglas MacArthur said, “In war, there is no substitute for victory.” Put another way, if victory in war is not the goal, why even bother? And, if all-out, Sherman-esque scorched-Earth execution of war is considered beneath a nation’s dignity, why participate in the first place?

It would be simpler and far less bloody to surrender to an enemy at the outset of hostilities.

For America, all-out war today obviously relates to the question of using or not using the most fearsome weapons ever designed by human beings, nuclear weapons.

We employed our only two such devices in Japan to end World War Two in the Pacific. We won. We refused to use them in Korea and Viet Nam, and we lost. The idea of using nukes in the War on Terror, in the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan, is apparently not even on the table.

We will lose those wars as well when President Obama shamelessly retreats when the going gets even tougher than it already is.

America should have learned from the 54,000 soldiers killed in Korea and from the 58,000 killed in Viet Nam. We should have learned but did not learn that when we must go to war, we should try to win. Mostly, we should have learned that when we go to war, to fight the enemy’s brand of war is foolhardy and deadly.

We may be fighting on that enemy’s turf but to play his games, as in fighting ground battles on that turf, fighting with our most potent weaponry sitting on the shelf, should be an impeachable offense for any commander in chief.

The best war, if there is such a thing, is one concluded as quickly as possible. In our case, that would mean using our weaponry to our best advantage and not being suckered into fighting the enemy’s kind of war.

We’re doing just that once again, which is the reason we will lose once again.

The question of whether or not to use tactical nuclear weapons is much less a military decision than it is a diplomatic, a humanitarian, and an emotional call.

Contemporary thought seems to be that being vaporized by a nuke is more unpleasant than other forms of warfare. Was being incinerated in the Dresden firestorm, dying slowly from an excruciating belly wound inflicted by a blast from an AK47, being ripped apart by an IED or a car bomb any less horrific than dying in a nuclear attack?

What a bunch of hogwash!

Does America, the only nation ever to use nukes, dare to detonate even tactical nukes again? We will not. Rather, our leaders are content in the notion of losing wars if the alternative is victory as the result of repeating our alleged iniquities committed over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

At least the United Nations will smile kindly on us for accepting gracious and bitter defeat. However, losing the War on Terror would mean far more than bitter defeat. It would mean the end of the United States as we know and love it.

I humbly suggest that America cease sucking up to misguided and self-serving world opinion and opt to win our current wars, by any means possible including the use of tactical nuclear weapons.

As ugly as that option is, the alternatives for America are much uglier.

Just as today it is thought obscene and merciless to deploy nukes, centuries ago during the Crusades the medieval Church considered the crossbow . . .

... and this is why we need a systematic removal of some groups of people. Twisted belief systems that have no place in society. This group brings nothing good to the world, just pure hatred for "non-believers."

... and sadly we're making any and every concession for these extremist piles of garbage in MY COUNTRY. Please wake up America. We know what they're doing to the UK with the rise of sharia law becoming acceptable. It's only a matter of time.

I just hope it's not too late for us.

Americantothecore: Thank you for your response. A response that shows a great deal of intellect.

(The third sentence in my post should have read ..shortly after SCHOOL was out for the day. Sometimes I get a case of "spaz fingers"). I wonder if spaz fingers qualifies as a pre-exting condition?!

Anyway, yes it's unfortunate that many youths in today's society are such wastes. I've seen and witnessed the entire gamut of youths--from exceptional young men and young women to the most vile, disrespecful, troubled, angst-ridden young people you can imagine who have idle minds, minds that may just be chock full of good intentions. They need to get control of their lives before they reach adulthood. Their parents need to be and get involved in their childrens' lives. Once the kids reach adulthood, they are on their own, but until then, parents have a God-given responsibilty to teach their children well--just like the Crosby, Stills and Nash song. Apparently, that is not happening. I know one of these types of "parents." Frankly, some of the liberal ideas she that spews forth of her mind and mouth scares the shit out of me, knowing that she would condone her children smoking pot but would freak if they ate two cheeseburgers at one sitting. She is one of the most naive people I have ever known in my 51 years of life. What's even scarier, is that she is close to my age, just a couple of years younger. So close in age, yet so different in expectations.

Anyone who would place that level of expectations and approve that sort of conduct on their children has something seriously wrong with them.

Chairman Zero's Regulatory Czar is as much a Totalitarian Nutjob as his science czar.

- People need to be regulated into making choices that are good for society.

- Animals should be allowed to sue people.

- Bloggers should be legal liable for the comments left on blogs.

I fear I'd be sent to a "camp" if the blogger regulation mentioned above by VtheK was implemented. I hope they expect a fight because I'm not goin' easy.

Meh, not to rain on your parade but you, by yourself, would go relatively easily. That's why I constantly tell everyone to know your friends and have a plan. Seriously. If we all hole up by ourselves and say, "come get me," we fail. Let's not fail.
