 A few words about justice and justification.

People can find a way to justify pretty much anything. The only requirement is the ability to momentarily (or in some cases permanently) suspend reality. It’s like a different facet of denial in that way.

Consider this, Al Capone, notorious mobster, murderer, breaker of the law, considered himself to be a misunderstood and persecuted individual who , in his own words, was a “great benefactor to the people”.

I guess he thought that his running of the gambling, prostitution and illegal liquor establishments was somehow a humanitarian effort. All those murders committed by him and at his request were obviously acts of “public service” and he should have gotten the keys to the city!  

Apparently to Capone the law and it’s enforcers were unfairly and unjustly persecuting him because they expected him to obey the laws of the land and they intended to stop him and prosecute him for not doing so. I suppose every criminal in the prison system probably thinks the same way. It’s part of their make up. If they admitted to themselves, or anyone for that matter, that they were in the wrong they might be forced to really think about their actions and the repercussions of them. Thus to them they are innocent and wronged by the system.

The Justice system sees things quite differently indeed. If you break the law you will pay the price. Message: Don’t break the law and you won’t have a problem.

We’ve seen an awful lot of this in the last 19 months. It seems lots of law breaking has been “justified” and gone unpunished.

A prime example is the recent hacking into the personal email account of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. It’s old news to anybody who surfs the net and it’s starting to get some exposure on MSM. Her personal email account was hacked, password changed and screen shots of her emails, contact list, photos of her family and email addresses and cell phone numbers of her family were published on the web by the hacker.

I have heard time and again from Obama supporters that the hacker was supposedly justified because there were reports she might be using her personal email to hide work related things she doesn’t want the public to see. Bullshit! Even if that were the case it is for officials and law enforcement to find out not some snot-nosed college punk who proudly calls himself an Obamacrat.

We are not allowed to take the law into our own hands in this country for a reason. So even if the allegations were true (the hacker himself admitted there was nothing incriminating in the emails) it is not the “job” of non-professionals to break the law to find out.

I have also heard that Sarah Palin supposedly “deserved” it or that this should prove she is incapeable of being VP because her email was hacked. First off who deserves to have their privacy invaded? Second how in the hell is that her fault or does it prove that she is not up for the job? Someone broke the law and invaded her privacy but we’re told that this makes her unqualified?

So what about when Obama’s, Hillary’s and McCain’s passport info was accessed illegally?  (by people connected with the Obama campaign no less) Wouldn’t that make Obama unqualified too by those standards? I mean if it makes Palin unqualified how come Obama was just a “victim” when it happened to him? Answer: because according to Obama and the Obamacrats he is ALWAYS the victim in any circumstance. It’s just a given.

When ever there is any question they automatically give the points to their guy just like the RBC meeting in May when the DNC gave Obama the uncommitted delegates and then the gave him 4 delegates that Senator Clinton earned even though his name wasn’t even on the ballot. Yup! And they broke their own sunshine rules to do it with a secret vote during their 2 1/2 hour lunch break.

Oh but they were “justified” in doing so because, well, because they wanted Obama to win. We’re up to here with their “justification”.

This is far from the first time Obama and his supporters have broken the law. Hillary supporters have been hacked, threatened, had their blogs shut down, been kicked off of previously democratic web sites that are nothing more than Obama shills now and the list goes on and on. Alot of these activities are illegal but we’re told that the Bots are justified and if we didn’t have the sites there they wouldn’t be able to hack them. It’s our own fault according to these people because we won’t just shut up and go away.

So I guess in their view if you speak out against them or speak out for what is right you are standing in their way and according to them that is a crime. I have news for them it is not a crime to refuse to vote for someone. It is not a crime to speak out for what you beleive is right. In fact is the opposite. Speaking out against corruption and evil is a civil duty of the highest order!

Then we have the fact that the hacker in question turns out to be the 20 year old son of a Democratic Senator from Tennessee. According to one MSM source he says “he was just playing around” and there are supposedly no charges being filed? That’s what I heard on CBS last night anyway.

I don’t care if he was playing around or not it is a crime to access someone’s personal correspondence and it should be treated as such. Plus they said he was the son of a “prominent democrat” but failed to mention just how prominent. Just one more example of how Obama has the media in his pocket.

If this was my email account, or yours, or anybody else’s they would be steaming mad and rightly so. Why is it only a crime if it’s against Obama but not when it’s against his opponents? This kid should be prosecuted for breaking the law and the media should be honest about the fact this is a crime and who his father really is. We are tired of them protecting the politicians they want to protect and crucifying the ones they don’t.

Actually we are tired of the media as a whole period. They should just go find jobs as hot dog vendors or carnival workers and leave the news to real journalists with scruples and ethics.

What about the crime Obama committed by trying to stall the troops withdrawal from Iraq for his own political gain? It is a crime. It is a felony. He violated the Logan Act. It is treason.

Thanks to Shtuey at http://ohmyvalve.blogspot.com/ for the excellent video!

Not to mention the fact it’s about as phony and hypocritical as you can get to campaign on the whole “Stop the war and bring our troops home” all the while wheeling and dealing behind the scenes to manipulate the public.

I suppose IF we hear anything about it from the MSM it will be somehow “justified” too. I suppose Obama is “justifying” any deaths that occur because of the delays caused by his meddling as a sacrifice that must be made in order for him to gain control and therefore “save” us! Pfffft! Don’t even get me started on that one!

Every single one of the soldiers serving overseas is worth more than a hundred Obamas! Every single one of them is out there fighting to protect the rights Obama would bargain away at the drop of a hat and issue some lame “justification” afterwords. He is not worth the spit they shine their boots with!

On a lighter note I found this on http://harddriller.wordpress.com/2008/09/20/new-nickel-design/ while tag surfing!

It was just too funny not to steal!

 

Oh such sweet truth!

You know I’ve been back and forth with this many times over the last year or so. Should I just change my registration to Independent or Unaffiliated? Or should I stay a Dem because the only way I can affect real change is from within? Many of my fellow Dems and Hillary Supporters have been agonizing over this for quite a while now. Some have already left the party and I, for one, consider it a great loss.

Many of us have been considering who to give our votes to as we know we will not be voting for Obama. Most of us have been subjected to ridicule, scorn, Internet flaming and even real threats, stalking and in some cases abuse. We’ve lost friendships and family over it or at the very least those relationships are strained.

I’ve had several friends who have tried to convince me “for my own good” of course that it doesn’t really matter what happened in the primaries that it’s over now and I should just move forward.

In my experience “moving forward” is not going to do anything other than condoning the fraudulent process that got us here and therefore rewarding and inviting more of the same. If they get away with it this time they will use more voter suppression tactics and threats and intimidation to subvert the process next time. You can count on it. If you give in to it you are feeding it and it will grow.

You do not fix a problem by ignoring it’s existence or by allowing it to go on unchecked.

I have other friends who say I just need to get over my anger. Hillary lost, she endorsed Obama end of story. He has a D beside his name what else do I need to know?

Did she really lose? Who won the popular vote? Who got the most votes of any primary candidate ever? Why do Caucuses only represent about 3% of the population but they are allotted delegates in the same manner as primaries which represent a much larger percentage of the population?

What was the final delegate count really? I mean BEFORE the forced and scripted roll call that was halted for a fake show of unity. The pledged delegate count was very close before Obama decided to restore Michigan and Florida to full vote status yet they never reported how that changed the actual delegate counts.

The media and the DNC swept all that under the rug since they were already busy planning how to spend the profits they intended to make on this Obama Gravy Train.

Not to mention the uncommitted delegates and the four Clinton delegates that were given to him in Michigan even though he was not on the ballot. Now that those were full votes it makes twice many delegates he gained by fraudulent methods. It’s twice as many delegates for Hillary too. She won both states hands down. 

I  don’t think that’s something I want to get over. The day when there is no outrage at cheating will be a cold day in Hell in my book and the books of many, many people in this country.

Truthfully for many of us it ceased to be about Hillary Clinton on May 31st, 2008. That was the day it became about so much more than Hillary vs. Obama it became about right and wrong. it was the shock of seeing our “leadership” distort the rules and pervert the process in order to spot Obama a few points because I guess they knew he would need them to “win” that created the outrage and the movement that is PUMA.

They have only themselves to blame. In a democratic society cheating will always cause outrage. You could say it’s the expected reaction even. The fact that it was carried out by our own side does not make it acceptable. I feel as strongly about it as I do Rev. Wright and his racist, anti-American rants. There is no context in which that is acceptable.

Most people in this country are decent, hardworking people who care very much about the difference between right and wrong. They work very hard to live by those values and to instill them in their children. Party makes no difference to those people but truth does. As does honesty, integrity, loyalty and compassion. These are things most people feel very strongly about regardless of their typical voting preferences. Things like these are deal breakers.

I have also heard the Roe v Wade argument to death. Won’t happen, we have a Dem controlled congress. The Supreme Court Argument. The Palin is pro-life argument. I don’t know many republicans that aren’t so why would they think this is news? I’ve heard them all.

I’ve also gotten a chorus of defensive stuff too over the exposure of Obamabot behaviour. For instance my last post that linked to Hillbuzz and the video of Democratic Underground posters and their EBay listing of Sarah Palin’s 4 month old baby. Of course the fact that this was on a Democratic blog and the posters were long time members with 1000+ posts each would NOT suggest to me that this is a Republican strategy. Someone is faking it to make the Dems look bad. No it would not suggest that to me at all but you be the judge. Some people! Eyes rolling!

The other things they do also like the recent discovery by the custodian at Invesco Field of 84 trash bags filled with American flags, Obama/Biden campaign signs, empty pizza boxes and other assorted trash. The custodian found them in the dumpster and called around eventually getting in touch with the Veterans and the Boy Scouts who sorted, rolled and recycled them by handing them out at a GOP campaign event. Flags that people did not want to keep were to be donated to be placed on Veteran’s graves.

The fact that Democrats who were touting this convention as the “Greenest Ever” would be so wasteful and that they would treat our flag with such disrespect is appalling to most people. I have heard though that this too must have been republicans, that everybody throws flags away, that they were supposedly “stolen” and intended for reuse. I’ve heard that it wouldn’t have been the Dems’ fault the custodian would be to blame. Obviously they didn’t read the part of the story where it said the custodian found them in the dumpster and I saw photos they were not being recycled they were in with the garbage.

Anybody remember when Obama went to Oregon and his people set up a port-a-potty on the memorial for a fallen police officer? That was probably republicans too. I know LOTS of republicans who go around volunteering to help set up for Obama events. (Sarcasm OFF.)

I can identify with that a tiny bit however because I know my friends are really just in denial. They do not want to admit to themselves that people could do these kinds of things and the idea that it could be members of the party you have held dear and worked hard for, been a loyal soldier for, well that’s a bitter pill to swallow.

I have a feeling though that swallow it they will. They have 54 days to let it sink in. 54 days to decide to do the right thing. I’m confident many of my friends will do just that because in the end they are decent, hardworking and compassionate people. They will not legitimize the atrocities that took place in the name of a win at any cost quest for power. They will not give their votes or their trust to those who cannot be trusted.

Obama and his supporters will understand in November when people go to the polls with determination to do what is right and what is best for our country.

In the end it is far less important who you vote for than who you vote against.

Obama supporters may never really catch on to what is happening here. They still insist this is all about Hillary and punishment, revenge all that stuff. Well to an extent they may be right but for the wrong reasons.

For myself and most PUMAS I know this has not been about Hillary for a long time. At least not entirely.

This is about R E S P E C T. Respect for our candidate, respect for all 18 million Clinton supporters and respect for Democracy, fair elections, one voice, one vote. We the people are not just the people who love Obama and it is highly insulting and disrespectful to act as though they are the only people who matter.

We saw the disrespect all around us and we have watched it grow and fester becoming so vile that many of us will never forget it. We watched as they rigged the primaries and pressured and prodded and pushed our candidate out with a parade of Super Delegate endorsements meant to push the idea that Senator Clinton had no chance and no real support in the party.

We saw the terrible way she was treated by the media who used every opportunity possible to either criticize her looks, laugh, voice and we heard and read many documented sexist comments like it was a free for all on any and all traits female. We also saw that the leadership of the DNC stood by and did absolutely nothing to stop it or to even speak out against that sort of treatment for a fellow Democrat, a human being.

We saw them praise Obama constantly, bury negative stories if they bothered to report them at all. They only reported the Rev. Wright story after the youtube clips were getting a lot of play and they decided they would look like the fools and shills they truly are if they didn’t jump on the bandwagon. Even then so many of the MSM and the DNC went to great lengths to try and downplay and deflate the story.

They had known about it for over a year but had held back on those journalistic standards we hear so much about for one reason. They loved their rock-star-money-machine more than their standards. Same with the DNC leadership.

They buried the Edwards story for over a year also yet they had absolutely no problem earlier this year reporting on McCain’s supposed “affair” with the lobbyist which was false. They refuse to report or investigate the Larry Sinclair story as well even though the “alleged former lover” has repeatedly spoken out to tell his version of what happened. I guess the lobbyist, who by the way denied any inappropriate relationship was a more juicy story? True or not the investigated and reported on that but The One is OFF LIMITS.

 They reported too that certain groups were calling for McCain to prove his citizenship and that he was qualified to be the president. They reported on the lawsuit that was filed and had no issues of whether or not they should without knowing if it was false or not. They still haven’t reported on the lawsuit filed by Atty.  Philip Berg declaring Obama may not be constitutionally qualified and asking him to prove that he is, the very same argument the other groups were making about McCain as they don’t want to “smear without knowing” yet this same protection was not afforded to smears against Hillary Clinton, John McCain or more recently Sarah Palin.

More even than all this is the treatment of Hillary supporters by Obama supporters and even Obama surrogates and campaign workers. We have been subjected to some of the most disgusting underhanded thug tactics and  threats. We have been constantly plagued with their angry, demanding posts on every blog or forum we visit (even our own) and ceremoniously kicked out of many sites that were supposedly Democratic sites like Move on, Democratic Underground, HuffPo, Talk Left and even the Official DNC Blogs were full of attack bots. 

You name it they did everything they could to purge us from their ranks and then they were incensed that we were not crazy about holding hands and singing Kumbyya with them after the farce that was the primaries and then the even more ridiculous spectacle that was the Convention.

They have heaped abuse on us, called us racists, bitter, old, spiteful and pretty much everything else they could think of. They said PUMAS were not real, they were really republicans, plants.

They have nothing but scorn for PUMAS and they are not bashful about getting in your face to say so. They have spent the better part of the last two years telling us we did not matter, we weren’t needed and in the same breath that we had damn well better fall in line.

News Flash! It ain’tgonna happen. We are not children to be told what to do and furthermore we will not reward the despicable behaviour that landed us in this situation. Most of us are quite sure that if we let the atrocities that took place stand and allow an outcome that was determined by false and in many cases illegal and imoral methods we will only suffer worse the next time around.

Every time we have to put up with Obama supporters infiltrating our blogs and hijacking our threads with their own agenda and their angry, threatening posts many of us move one step closer to voting for McCain.

Every time we see and hear Obama supporters attacking Sarah Palin not for the issues or her political views, (admittedly there is a lot there to go after as she is a republican and a lot of issues are not exactly in line with Dems) but instead they attack her for her looks, her children, is the last one hers? Her daughters? Her daughter’s with her son? Did she fake pregnancy with a pregnancy suit? Is it somehow her fault that her son was born with Downs Syndrome?  Her daughter is pregnant! She should have had an abortion and kept it quiet. Yes as if that’s perfectly in line with Sarah’s Pro-Life, Pro-Family values.

The more that Obama supporters continue to act like high school bullies and make completely sexist attacks on Sarah Palin instead of focusing on actual issues that have nothing to do with gender the closer we move toward voting for McCain.

The more they scream and rail and tell us we had better fall in line and do as they say the farther away from ever doing that we get.

This is about respect and this is about a lesson our party needs to learn. Many of us know what we must do. We don’t like it one bit. We have far less in common with the republican party than we do the Democratic party or at least the remnants of it.

The core principals and ideals that our party once stood for have been compromised by the rotten, festering wound that is the Move On crowd. The hyper-radical wing that has taken over our party. We may not have much in common with the republicans but we are realizing more and more that we need to do whatever is necessary to teach out party a sorely needed lesson. They cannot take us or our votes for granted. We must never allow this type of corrupt leadership to prosper under the name of our great party. We must take it back and we must never let their treachery stand or be sanctioned for the sake of all we hold dear.

We know what we must do and Obama supporters and Sarah Palin just make it a little bit easier. Kind of like the spoonful of sugar making the bad tasting medicine go down smoother. We will do what we must and the DNC and their leadership will be tasting the foul taste of our remedy. I hope they gag and cry over every minute of it. Tough love is sometimes a necessary thing in order to keep things from getting any further out of hand. PUMAS will administer it with help from the republicans and most of middle America.

Maybe we should start a fund for councilors to be on hand on November 5th to console them after their loss lesson.

Wow! Talk about change! The DNC leadership decided this year they could pass over the most capable candidate to come along in years who also happened to be a woman and then decided to install the least qualified, least experienced and most morally bankrupt candidate in her stead using such progressive tactics as quelling dissent, demonizing a former first lady and Senator from New York, using sexism, misogyny, guilt trips, fear tactics and falsley painting those who were against their brilliant idea as racists and closet republicans. They decided they would rig the primary in an Affirmative Action kind of way to handicap the true hope of the party and give a “just because your special” award to the usurper.

They told us to shut up and fall in line. They said we were all old, white, typical, bitter, hysterical, menopausal, lesbian bitches and that we needed to STFU! Again I’m reminded of just how progressive this was! Snark!

They told us they didn’t need our votes, didn’t want our votes and they could care less that voters were leaving the party in droves. They said they had new voters!

We all know how the new voter thing usually works out.

They refused to give the job to the best candidate and then they refused to give the candidate the respect she deserved and earned even though many, many men had come before her and had not done nearly as well as she had and they had automaticly received that respect.

They tried to keep her out of the nomination, out of the traditionalRoll Call vote and then when pressured they gave in but only to a scripted, shortened and fake version that falsley made it look as though their candidate was chosen unanimously. They spent way too much money on a grand coronation ceremony to make The One feel he was suffieciently worshipped.

After all that what bang did they get for their buck? Nada, zip, zilch. A minimal bounce in the polls immediately cancelled by the competition’s announcement of VP choice.

The republicans and John McCain spoke loud and clear to Hillary supporters and to all women today when they announced Governor Sarah Palin as the running mate for the general Election in November.

Here’s a video of the speech:

That’s right folks. The democrats call themselves the progressive party but they don’t walk the walk. They called Hillary Clinton a Bitch, a Whore and a Monster among other things. They went on ad nausem about former president Bill Clinton supposedly being a liability. (Didn’t mind using him for thier faux unity affair this week though. ) We heard about cankles and “size 22 pantsuits bursting at the seams” and all kinds of progressive things. (Don’t you dare say anythingabout Michelle Obama though lest you be chided by The One and called a sexist creep by the bots.)

All their crapola about being the progressive party and them trying to use this election which should have been a slam dunk as a teaching moment about race. (Mostly they wanted to make themselves look good and well, progressive.) Yet thanks to them now it will be the republicans NOT the democrats who finally break that glass ceiling.

Thanks DNC for nothing. We put those 18 million cracks there so you could throw away the one hope we had for true change in this country and we could get trumped by the GOP! Great going! Remind me never to ask the DNC for their help again on anything!

If you notice Gov. Palin actually acknowledges and thanks Gerraldine Farraro and Hillary Clinton for paving the way for her. She admits that she could not be there without their hard work and determination. The crowd cheers at this and the mention of breaking that glass ceiling! Yup! Republicans were cheering for Hillary Clinton! Unlike her own party who abandoned her and called her and her supporters every sexist thing they could.

It was democrats who were calling out for her to “Iron my shirt” and “go home and bake cookies”. My, my what a progressive bunch! So while the democrats were trampling on women the GOP was actually lifting one up and celebrating her and the aniversary of women’s right to vote! I thought they were supposed to be the non-progresive party?

I will never vote for Obama. he is not qualified or the right person for the job. In fact he is a dangerous man in my opinion. Smart like a fox, or a snake-oil salesman.

I have been a democrat my whole life and will vote against my own party in November for the first time ever. I will not reward the treachery and bad behaviour that was rampant in this cycle. If we allow them to get away with that this time mark my words the next time will be far worse.

It will be third party for me unless it’s so close I fear Obama will win. Then I would have to vote republican. I never thought I’d say that before this primary and election year. I really hope I don’t have to but if I do at least I will feel a little better knowing that McCain was at least paying attention to what was going on. He didn’t have his head so far up Obama’s ass that he could not see they were alienating half the party.

Is it a strategy to win on his part? Of course it is but he did not make this decision lightly or based soley on Gov. Palin’s womanhood. She is very much in line with his own policies and beliefs and she was a good choice for him.

The Obamabots have already begun attacking her and McCain for choosing her.  Shocked! Aren’t you?

They’ve alredy begun hacking on her inexperience. Now THAT’S a real laugh considering Obama has zip for experience really and no accomplishments. Senators legislate, Governors actualy rule and lead.

Then they tried out the ‘ol sexism. What about her five kids? Who will raise the if thieir mother is working as VP? Um.. her husband who is a Native American, commercial fisherman, off season oil field worker, champion snow-mobile racer and for now a stay at home Dad. In other words a truly progressive male.

Next it was all about how environmentally irresponsible it is for her to have five children. One blog buddy pointed out that if that was a problem they might want to check into the breeding habits of the Kennedeys. Touche! Besides we are not communist China where they implement a one child policy.  At least not yet. Give ’em time.

Apparently to the Obamacrats any women are fair game except of course Michelle who is such a paragon of grace and humility. Puke!

For the record I will not make sexist remarks about Mrs. Obama. Nor will I stand for those remarks from anyone else. I won’t stand for those kind of remarks about ANY woman. In this day and age it is unacceptable to treat others in this fashion. But then again Obamacrats do make thieir own rules and standards of acceptability.

In four years and in the meantime we real democrats will work dillegently to take our party back and we will prevail. It may be that Hillary Clinton did the work for someone else to reap the benifits but you know what? Women don’t care as much about who breaks the barriers as the fact that they get broken.

Hillary will be back and she will be better and smarter for the experience. She will be president and all those Obamacrats will probably shit their pants. Too bad!

I must say McCain has learned a thing or two from his first trip to the rodeo. Both from the crap he took from his own party and from the crap he saw Hillary take from hers. He watched and he learned from it. He used what he learned to do what he will. He just won the elction.

The DNC and Obama have only themselves to blame. They handed it to him on a platter. While they were making noise about change the GOP was actually affecting it.

Thanks again Obamacrats for nothing!

Okay in keeping with the title of the post I will say I’m happy we are moving toward a world where these things will someday not matter. The Democrats are officially the first major party to nominate an African American for POTUS and this will go down in the history books for that reason! Congrats to African Americans, the Democratic Party and all Americans for that! Hopefully we will soon be at a point where this becomes so commonplace it is a non-issue. A nation that values it’s people based on their character and their contributions not their race, religion or gender.

Now on to the OTHER reasons this election cycle will go down in history some of which are not nearly as noble or celebratory. What am I talking about you might be asking?

This election cycle will definitely go down in the history books as the year when the Democrats moved as far away from the concept of democracy as they possibly could without actually changing the party name to Kommies for Amerrikka! The tactics used in this primary season were straight from the GOP playbook with one major exception.

The GOP has a rule: Never use dirty tactics against other Republicans. Against the other side it is expected, even encouraged. By all means use every dirty, underhanded, manipulative and fear-maongering tactic at your disposal against the “enemy” whether they be Dems or Independants, Libertarians or The Green Party. Mission seek and destroy! But never, nver, ever use those tactics to attack a fellow Republican!

This year during the primary season we saw caucus manipulation  (really in many instances it was out-right cheating, coercion by intimidation and the use of learned and practiced “shout ’em down” thug tactics),  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGZFgMNM-UU   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXNqFQmGxDU&feature=related 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4XFvq5XMk8&feature=related 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cnclKiHwatw&feature=related 

Voter Registration Fraud ACORN and CSI (Volunteers were in some cases filling out registration sheets and forms with random names from the phone book or just made up to insure they got paid. Apparently they were paid according to quotas as in per X amount of registrations. Brilliance I tell ya’!), http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/08/20/money-laundering-scandal/  http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/08/22/acorn-%e2%80%93-csi-%e2%80%93-obama-someone-else-noticed/

Race-bating including portraying the only Two-Term Democratic President in the last 40 years and someone who has done more for racial equality and the black community than The One ever has or will as a racist. This tactic was used, falsley, against Bill and Hillary Clinton and anyone who supported either one of them or anyone who did not support Barrack Obama. The smearing of good Democrats with proven records of fighting good causes and striving for equality and a better life for all Americans was done not by Republicans as we are used to but by our fellow Democrats who used this as a club to beat the competition with.

All through the primaries we were deluged with Clinton hate and smears against the former Clinton Administration all the while being told that it was Hillary and Bill who were “smearing and fear-mongering”. They went on and on about things like the supposed “tarnishing” of the party by the Monica scandal and the “anything to win” tactics they accused the Clinton campaign of all the while trying very hard to smear and erase all the truly good things that were accomplished in the 90’s.

You know things like eliminating a huge deficit and leaving an actual surplus. That in itself was an unprecedented achievement. Things like improvements to our educational system, programs for families with young children and the pride we felt about our reputation in the world.

I could go on for quite a while on the things that the Clinton Administration did for our country. Things that sadly have been squandered and left by the side of the road like unwanted trash by the current administration. People had jobs, were able to pay their bills and buy homes.

Back to the race baiting here’s the real kicker. No matter what criticism was made about Obama it was all immediately branded as racist. He’s inexperienced – Racist, He’s an elitist – Racist, Tire gages won’t solve the energy crisis and bring down gas prices – Racist, not qualified – Racist, Rezco, Wright, Farrakkan, Auchi – all Racist claims according to camp Obama. FISA, Cheney’s Energy bill and his stance on the Born Alive Act – Racist. In fact by now you should be able to see a pattern here.

According to the Obama camp and the “powers that be” (DNC Leadership) any and all criticism of The One is deemed Racist and politicly incorrect regardless of whether or not it’s true. Got it? He’s PERFECT! Anyone who says otherwise is… you guessed it, racist. Did you get the memo folks?

From: DNC

To: Voters

There is no reason to vote against or refuse to support Obama that is not motivated by racism and bigotry. End of story. This is the official party line and is the ONLY sanctioned response. Please keep in mind that we are the PROGRESSIVE party and as such NO DISSENT will be tolerated! Party members choosing to ignore this edict will be subject to threats, intimidation and possibly the stripping of credentials as well as expulsion from the party.

Sincerely,

Howie, Nancy, Harry and Donna

P.S. Don’t forget to donate!

Okay, okay! So it’s not a real memo but it could very well have been and it’s definitely been implied.

Meanwhile it was never said but always understood that these same rules did not apply to the distinguished Senator from New York. In fact it was open season on Hillary Clinton, former President Clinton and the legacy left by his administration. Camp Obama tried with all their might to re-write the hisory of the 90’s as a hard and terrible time fraught with shame, scandal and poverty.

Well folks as a person who was actually old enough to be paying my own bills in the 90’s I can tell you that NONE of that was true. There were plenty of jobs, the banks were not going under every other day, people could afford to purchase homes for their families and even afford to send those families to college. Our country was actually respected as a leader in Democracy and Diplomacy. Something Obama has no clue about.

That’s why it hasn’t stuck. Try as they might to paint the Clintons with a terrible legacy of a failed economy and national history the facts speak otherwise. LOUDLY!

Here’s is another reason this will go down in the history books. This is the first election to my knowledge where Democrats not only attacked fellow Dems but decreed any and all dissent must be squashed by any means necessary. Long time Democratic websites and blogs began ceremoniously kicking out members who expressed displeasure with the candidate de’ jour. Blogs were spam bombed in coordinated attacks that the attackers actually bragged about on their own sites.

Even the normal political attack ads that we typicaly see every election year have been not just scrutinized but demonized and even now camp Obama is threatening legal action against the donors of a 527 group for making an ad that frankly, tells the truth about The One’s close relationship with one William Ayers. (Remember Obama said he was just some guy in his neighborhood?) In fact Obama’s first political campaign was launched from the very same William Ayers’ home in Chicago!

That’s right he wants to put the people who made the ad and those who contributed money to the group behind bars for daring to speak against The One, for speaking the truth!

Here is the first letter to the station managers:

Here’s a post about the entire fiasco:

Then apparently they sent a second letter actually threatening legal action against the stations airing the ad, the group who made it and the donors who contributed. I’m trying to find the link to the second letter. I should know to save these things! If anyone else has a link please post it and I’ll add it in.

Here it is.

And finally the rebuttal from the groups legal advisors:

My how progressive and liberal of the Obama people! How Democratic! I’m so glad they believe in free speech and all!

Thanks to Obamabi.com for the video.

Seriously folks these people are far worse than even the Republicans. Democrats do not quell dissent! They do not quash free speech and they do not use coercion, threats and propaganda techniques to control and distort messages!

At least REAL Democrats don’t! Obamacrats? Well that’s another story! These people have more in common with Hitler and Stalin than FDR or JFK. They would never have tried to shut people up from their own party and they never would have stood for treating other people, much less Democrats, with anything less than the respect any American deserves!

Shame on Barrack Obama and his followers for this will surely go down in the history books as the time when our party lost it’s way and turned to facism rather than using actual principals, facts and decency to argue their case!

There’s always more but I’m going to stop for now.

Well I managed to sit through Michelle’s speech last night and a bit more of the proceedings as well though I had to miss some of it due to well, life. I think James Carville was right on the money when he said there was no message.

Sure they tried to make it all about humanizing the Obamas and how they supposedly personally suffered so greatly to get where they are. (Eyes rolling) I don’t doubt they are real, human beings but I hardly believe their “single mom and working class grandparents raised Barrack” line of crap. Grandma was VP of the bank, Gramps managed a big furniture store, they sent him to private schools then Harvard for cying out loud! Hardly qualifies as typical working class roots.

What I did notice was the body language during Michelle’s speech. It was not warm, open or inviting but was more along the lines of her proffession. It seemed far more like an attorney making her closing arguments than a potential first lady welcoming Americans into her world. Maybe it’s a carry over from her proffession. Maybe it was intentional and she really was making a closing argument. They did call her “The Closer”.

She didn’t do it for me though. I can’t be argued into something I don’t believe in. Perry Mason himself would not change my mind or those of many disenchanted voters.

Also loved all the talking heads and delegates saying how Obama needs to have some actual policies and solutions to woo voters now and get his head out of the clouds. You know get real and talk to the common folk. I couldn’t help being reminded of my still un-finished

https://caffinequeen.wordpress.com/hansel-and-gretel-tale-of-the-lost-children-a-primary-parody-pt-1-4/ 

story about the primaries and how part of the theme was that Gretel wanted to lead the children home with the proven path of policies and solutions that she had left for them on thier way into the forest. Got quite a chuckle out of that one! I’ll be writing the final chapter after the convention but I already know one line that will ring out loud and clear.

No Barrack Hansel, it’s not about you. It’s about the children and getting them home safely!

Here is a quote from an email my mother sent me yesterday. I don’t know where it came from originally if someone does please let me know.

Always remember: Today’s mighty oak is simply
yesterday’s nut that held its ground . . .

Appropriate no? Take heart PUMAS! Patriots! Hold steady and we WILL stand tall and proud like the mighty oak!

As an aside to those who insist that I have to post their comments here’s all I can say. WHAAAAA! TOOO BAD! I will not publish any remarks that are nothing more than Hillary Hate and threats, shaming and calling me names won’t sway me one bit. I have never gone to Pro-Obama blogs and made comments period let alone the kind of crap they do on every Pro-Hillary blog or forum that they can find. I will not post anything with racist or porn links and I will not be changing that policy no matter how many times you scream censorship. It’s MY blog I post what I choose. End of story.

I do post comments from people with diffent opinions than my own just not nasty, hateful comments from anybody. ‘Nuff said!

I’m so tired of all the sore loser and bitter dead-ender comments out there. They want to spin this party implosion as being all about Hillary Clinton’s supporters being “spiteful”.

I know you’ve seen it. It’s everywhere. According to these commenters we are voting against Obama only to spite him because he “won” and Hill “lost”. I guess they got tired of calling us racists and republicans. Maybe it was getting old and not sticking. Now they’re on a “spoiled brat, spiteful, sore loser, bitter, old hag” stchick.

When will these people ever figure out that name calling, guilt trips, scare tactics, threats and intimidation is NOT the way to win votes or recruit support? Did they ever hear the phrase “You will catch more flies with honey than vinegar.”? Guess not.

Here’s the truth. Are we pissed off that Hillary Clinton the distinguished Senator from New York, former First lady of the USA and the best candidate to come along in years is not our party’s nominee? Damn right we are! Are we voting against and refusing to support Obama soley because of that anger and dissapointment? Hell NO!

There may be a few Clinton supporters who would disagree with me and say it’s their only reason but truthfully there are very few who feel that way. Sure we’re all bummed but I was bummed when Kerry won the nomination in 2004 as I have been bummed many other times but I still voted for him.

Recently I had some coment made asking me whether I would have voted for George Bush out of spite if it had been Hillary who lost the nomination to Kerry. Answer? NO and Hell NO! He wasn’t my choice and I didn’t like it but I voted for him. Why? I trusted him more than I would ever trust Bush. I didn’t like him that much but he was by far the lesser of two evils in that situation. This is NOT the case in this election cycle. Far from it in fact.

People who try to tell me that Obama’s policies are “nearly identical” might as well save their breath because it’s bullshit. His policies, are a parade of ever changing pandering that even some of my far left friends who supported him are having a hard time keeping up with. Whatever they are today you can rest assured they will be different tomorrow or as soon as it becomes politically expedient that he change them. Again.

Pure and simple, straight from this horse’s mouth, so to speak. We will not vote for him because he is not the right person for the job.  He is not even close. No choice for VP, not even Hillary would have ever made up for that. We don’t think he’s up for the job and more important than that we DO NOT TRUST HIM!

He has proven to be naive at best in his reaction to the current Russia/Georgia conflict as well as incompetent on almost every other major issue. Were he to become the POTUS it is my sincere belief that the country would be in complete economic chaos within the first year of his administration.

Then we have his ideas on foriegn policy (again naive and foolish), National Health Insurance (don’t even get me started on this one) and taxes (raising the Capital Gains Tax has been tried before and proved ineffective and unsucessfull).

The we have the issues of his dangerous associations and all the endorsements from people like Louis Farrakan, NOI, Black Panthers, Hamas, Kim Jong Il, Osama bin Laden. He may not have asked for those endorsments but the fact that people like this support and endorse him is very telling indeed.

Let’s see Rezco (set to be sentenced a week before the November election), Ayers (flag burning, fire bombing, self admitted terrorist who wishes they had done more), Auchi, Odinga, ACORN, Rev. Wright (God Damn America Rev. Wright) and the list goes on and on and on. Why is this guy associated with so many radical, terrorist types? Not to mention convicted criminals. How come they all seem to love Obama so much? Why do they flock to him in droves? You think maybe they recognize a kindred spirit?

To the person or persons who keep sending me comments threatening me and telling me to shut the fuck up: Dream on ! I will not shut up! If it was only that easy! In the words of the famous Tweety Bird “You don’t know me vewy well now do you?” Oh, and BTW, I am self employed so there goes that threat too! Tough day for you huh?
