Wishing you and yours a Happy Veterans Day!
(Now, if I can just convince my new employer to give me the day off…)
Today, I received a letter from Sen. McCain. Naturally, it was just another form letter designed to scare Republicans out of their hard-earned money:
From: John McCain
Barack Obama and the Democrats are falsely claiming a mandate from last year’s election in order to continue to advance their ultra-left agenda of ever-expanding government, massive deficits, and class warfare.
We must act immediately to strengthen and expand our Party for the 2013-2014 election cycle. And we must remain true to our conservative principles so that we can put brakes on the disastrous policies of a second-term Obama administration.
I am determined to do whatever I can to ensure our Party has the resources to win in future elections. That’s why I’ve asked the Republican National Committee if I can write to you today to urge you to support the RNC’s efforts to elect Republicans at all levels in the 2013-2014 elections.
By acting today, you will be reaffirming your personal commitment to stand up for an America where low taxes, free enterprise, limited government, individual responsibility, and a strong military are the building blocks to a prosperous and secure future for our nation and our families.
Barack Obama campaigned on the promise that he would bring our country together, reach beyond partisanship to solve our country’s critical problems.
Instead, President Obama has proven to be one of the most divisive leaders our nation has ever seen.
The bottom line is this: We need your personal commitment today to help ensure that we elect Republicans who will fight for the initiatives and policies that will build a strong America and stop Barack Obama and the Democrats’ misguided policies.
With 38 governorships, 35 Senatorial, 435 Congressional and thousands of offices at stake up-and-down the ballot, we will need to spend tens of millions of dollars on candidate recruitment, opposition research, voter identification and grassroots organizing.
It is often said that “elections have consequences,” and never has that been truer than what we are witnessing now. Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress have clearly shown that they are determined to take our country down a far-reaching, radical and destructive path.
Right now, nothing is more critical than stopping them.
Please contribute $14 today to help provide the foundation for Republican victories in 2014.
Naturally, I just couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to respond to Comrade McCain. Below is my response:
Dear John McCain,
I voted for you and ex-Governor Palin in 2008. I am sorry that you lost. Not because I thought you, personally, would make a great President, but because I believed, and still believe, that ex-Governor Palin would have MADE you a great President!
That being said, if you and your Neo-Progressive GOP establishment were legitimately serious about putting the brakes on the Democrats’ and the Obama Administration’s disastrous, Communist policies, then you most certainly would have fully supported Senator Ted Cruz and his pseudo filibuster!
Yet, you failed to support him. In fact, you fatuously belittled Sen. Cruz in a most public way! Shame on you and the entire Neo-Progressive GOP establishment! You are part of the problem, John. You and the Neo-Progressive GOP establishment are out of touch with the majority of Americans.
Currently, the largest ideological group in America is not Moderate nor Liberal; it’s Conservative. Think about that. You are disenfranchising 40 percent of America, my friend!
John, you have been handed a golden opportunity to make history and revive a GOP which is currently in its death-throes. You will not be able to save the patient unless you assiduously and legitimately embrace the Tea Party Conservatives, thus breathing new life into the GOP. I don’t care what you’ve been told or think; the GOP will not survive without incorporating the Tea Party Conservatives in a very real and meaningful way.
Also, quit worrying about appeasing and kowtowing to the “Lame Stream Media” (as ex-Gov. Palin likes to call them). It’s absolutely embarrassing. How’s that strategy working out for you, John? What are you? A man or a puppet?
The LSM is the bastard love child of Communism. President Ronald Reagan (the second greatest President, ever, in my humble opinion) NEVER kowtowed to Communism in any form. Neither should you. Furthermore, you will NEVER appease the LSM as long as you claim ownership of that “R” next to your name on the ballot. So, either stop your vain attempts at mollifying the LSM, or come out of the closet and declare yourself a Democrat in order to garner favoritism from a far-Left leaning LSM. One or the other, John.
Tangentially, your seemingly constant state of obsequiousness to the LSM has me wondering, do you really think so maladroitly of your constituents that you actually think you need to get the LSM on your side in order to win an election? They are NEVER on your side, yet you still keep winning your coveted Senate seat. So, what’s the deal with all that fatuous suck-up-ism?
Face it, John, the GOP establishment is dead unless it genuinely supports and embraces the Tea Party Conservative movement which has swept America in the past few years. No, I don’t mean merely paying Conservatives a bunch of lip service while surreptitiously sawing off their legs in order to fit them into a Procrustean bed designed by a group of misguided, egotistical Neo-Progressive GOP’ers. Make your guest beds longer, my friend, not your guests’ legs shorter!
True comradeship within the ENTIRE Republican Party is the golden key you and your Neo-Progressive GOP establishment seems to have lost. What I am saying is that you MUST veraciously and unquestionably support and embrace the Tea Party Conservatives in order to save the GOP! No more hollow words or empty promises. No more backstabbing and fatuous belittlement of Tea Party Conservatives. No more elitism and backroom deals.
Until such a time as that, you and the rest of your Progressive GOP buddies will get NO HELP from the likes of me, nor from the likes of most Conservatives and Moderates.
I believe it was Lee Atwater who popularized the term, “The Big Tent.” Well, don’t you think it’s about time that your Big Tent genuinely provide accommodations for the Right, too, instead of just pretending it does when it really doesn’t?

What a sad commentary on the idiocy of many Americans. No wonder Obama is still in office!
The public indoctrination centers of America (public schools) would be proud:
You just know that on day one of Obamacare’s roll-out, CNN’s senior medical correspondent, Elizabeth Cohen, was thinking that she would immediately log onto the government’s healthcare website; enroll in Obamacare; and, file a glowing report about how wonderful and majestic the government run healthcare system was.
Well, two weeks later, she’s been at it every single day and the reality of just how much of a failure the Obamacare roll-out is seems to be finally sinking in…
Here’s my little theory on the GovernMENTAL Shutdown:
It was orchestrated as a side show to distract the public from the disastrous roll-out of Obamacare.
Clearly, the Government knew Obamacare would not be ready for its roll-out on October 1st, 2013.
Naturally, as seems to be the standard operating procedure for our current incompetent Government, they needed another huge distracted. Else, ALL the major Lame Stream Media networks and newspapers would hammer them mercilessly with news reports of Obamacare failures. So, Boehner (wittingly or unwittingly—it doesn’t matter—), Obama, and Reid orchestrated a side-show distraction on the very same, EXACT day that Obamacare rolled out: The shutdown of the U.S. Government.
Interestingly enough, the GovernMENTAL Shutdown doesn’t seem to have affected the Government at all—they’re all still going about their business as usual, which is, giving the American People the “bird,” 24/7.
Anyway, here’s CBS actually doing some real reporting. Of course, this is on the MORNING show and I would be EXTREMELY surprised if it ever makes its way to the EVENING news:
The “Greatest Generation” continues to show the brainwashed Gen-X and Y’rs who’s really Uncle Sam’s “Daddy!”:
And, just so you know, the Vietnam Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial were left open during the 1995 shutdown because they didn’t require supervision by Federal employees:
God love and bless our World War II vets!:
WWII Vets Knock Over Shutdown Barrier to Visit Memorial
BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
A group of World War II veterans in an Honor Flight group Tuesday knocked over barriers imposed during the government shutdown at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C., to get inside.
Anyone else having a few questions raised in their minds concerning those Federal Government Shutdown signs? One, who knew well in advance that the government was actually shutting down? I mean, it takes an inordinate amount of advanced notice to get anything printed in mass quantities! And, two, how much of our hard earned tax-dollars were wasted printing up those signs, transporting them, posting them, etc., etc.???
Obviously, we don’t have a President. We have a slacker-in-chief:
As Crisis Unfolds, Obama Sets Personal Golf Record
by KEITH KOFFLER – White House Dossier
As the House moved Saturday toward passing legislation that will likely result in a government shutdown, President Obama excused himself to play his customary Saturday golf, a round that set a record for most golf outings in a year since he became president.
It is perhaps emblematic of his declining influence on Capitol Hill that Obama chose not to work to affect the outcome of one of the most consequential pieces of legislation in years and instead engaged in his favorite recreational activity.
For the record, that’s 35 rounds of golf just this year, alone! Obviously, this is another “historic” milestone for Obama, as his previous record for hitting the links was 34 in 2011.
Sorry for not posting anything, lately.
In Obama’s new economy, I’m having to work two jobs in order to make ends meet. Hence, with family and work, I don’t have much time, nor the energy, to post regularly. And, to make matters worse, Ronin is out of the country on assignment for another month or two.
However, I will attempt to get some posts out this week.
Thank you for your patience with me.

Considering that Jury Nullification allows a jury to vote their conscience and override ANY judge and/or law they wish, I foresee some major problems with this in the future should it become law:
CALIF. BILL WOULD LET NON-CITIZENS SERVE ON JURIES
BY JUDY LIN
SACRAMENTO, California (AP) — The California Assembly passed a bill on Thursday that would make the state the first in the nation to allow non-citizens who are in the country legally to serve on jury duty.
Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, said his bill, AB1401, would help California widen the pool of prospective jurors and help integrate immigrants into the community.
Democratic lawmakers who voted for the bill said there is no correlation between being a citizen and a juror, and they noted that there is no citizenship requirement to be an attorney or a judge. Republican lawmakers who opposed Wieckowski’s bill called it misguided and premature.
