Boycott America

24 January, 2013

By Ronin, 24 January 2013

Now that our government has decided what type marriages we support, how our military should run, who should be allowed in our country and what benefits they will receive, how much free medical care that addicts should receive and how to force gun registration on us (among other stupid ideas).   I have decided to show the low life self-serving opportunists in Washington what I think of all these ideas.  Starting today I am officially not buying American.

Buying American provides jobs which means people can earn money and pay taxes.  By not buying American goods and products I am removing taxes from the thieves in Washington.   They cannot enforce policies that they cannot pay for.  So join me, stop buying American! (more…)

Annual brainwash America day set for 15 April.

7 April, 2011

April 15th is love a fag, pervert, freak and anti Christian value day, in American schools. Held as an annual event to support sexual freaks and perverts, the event is designed to make your children think that holding people responsible for personal choices is somehow wrong.

The idea is for normal Americans to support gays and to protect them from bullying and harassment. I am not sure who is oppressing them but they want it stopped. I am also not sure how sitting quietly and not participating in school helps. However, it is supposed to work, I do not like, support or condone it. Damn, that sounded intolerant.

Since I cannot think of a mainstream television show without a gay character (usually one of the few characters that is not a nutjob) I doubt that the gays are really oppressed at all. I strongly doubt that the few that are will require an entire day just to support them. If the gays are really in need of support they should group up and march right beside the straight people in the annul heterosexual rights parade. Oh, damn, we don’t have one, you fags are all a bunch of intolerant a-holes. (more…)

Incumbents Take Notice

14 September, 2010

This is just one battle but the message is clear-this is not about party. All incumbents need to take note. Half of them blatantly ignored your wishes, values and goals for their own self-serving agendas, the rest failed to stop them. It is time to Get Rid of Incumbent Politicians (GRIP).

Help put congress in the long unemployment lines they helped build.

By RANDALL CHASE, 14 Sep, 10, (AP) WILMINGTON, Del. – Conservative activist Christine O’Donnell earned a stunning victory in Delaware’s Republican Senate primary Tuesday, riding a wave of tea party anger and advertising dollars to oust U.S. Rep. Michael Castle.

O’Donnell’s shocking win gave new energy to the tea party movement, which targeted Castle after victories by Republican tea party candidates in the Alaska and Nevada Senate primaries.

With 78 percent of precincts reporting, O’Donnell had 54 percent to 46 percent for Castle, a former two-term governor and the longest serving congressman in Delaware history.

While attracting enough GOP conservatives to defeat Castle, a leader of Republican moderates in Congress, O’Donnell will have a hard time defeating Democrat Chris Coons in November for the Senate seat vacated by Joe Biden after he was elected vice president.

But voters nevertheless took their chances on O’Donnell, who characterized Castle as a liberal who sides with big-spending Democrats more than he does with fellow Republicans.

“I think Castle is too liberal,” said Robert Manning, 56, a design engineer from Georgetown who voted for O’Donnell.
-Reality is this years elections are easy, out with the old and in with the new. (more…)

It’s Official: Libtards Are ‘Economically Challenged’

8 June, 2010

Well, this would explain a whole lot:

Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?
Self-identified liberals and Democrats do badly on questions of basic economics.

By DANIEL B. KLEINThe Wall Street Journal

Who is better informed about the policy choices facing the country—liberals, conservatives or libertarians? According to a Zogby International survey that I write about in the May issue of Econ Journal Watch, the answer is unequivocal: The left flunks Econ 101.

Zogby researcher Zeljka Buturovic and I considered the 4,835 respondents’ (all American adults) answers to eight survey questions about basic economics. We also asked the respondents about their political leanings: progressive/very liberal; liberal; moderate; conservative; very conservative; and libertarian.

Rather than focusing on whether respondents answered a question correctly, we instead looked at whether they answered incorrectly. A response was counted as incorrect only if it was flatly unenlightened.

Consider one of the economic propositions in the December 2008 poll: “Restrictions on housing development make housing less affordable.” People were asked if they: 1) strongly agree; 2) somewhat agree; 3) somewhat disagree; 4) strongly disagree; 5) are not sure.

Basic economics acknowledges that whatever redeeming features a restriction may have, it increases the cost of production and exchange, making goods and services less affordable. There may be exceptions to the general case, but they would be atypical.

Therefore, we counted as incorrect responses of “somewhat disagree” and “strongly disagree.” This treatment gives leeway for those who think the question is ambiguous or half right and half wrong. They would likely answer “not sure,” which we do not count as incorrect.

In this case, percentage of conservatives answering incorrectly was 22.3%, very conservatives 17.6% and libertarians 15.7%. But the percentage of progressive/very liberals answering incorrectly was 67.6% and liberals 60.1%. The pattern was not an anomaly.

The other questions were: 1) Mandatory licensing of professional services increases the prices of those services (unenlightened answer: disagree). 2) Overall, the standard of living is higher today than it was 30 years ago (unenlightened answer: disagree). 3) Rent control leads to housing shortages (unenlightened answer: disagree). 4) A company with the largest market share is a monopoly (unenlightened answer: agree). 5) Third World workers working for American companies overseas are being exploited (unenlightened answer: agree). 6) Free trade leads to unemployment (unenlightened answer: agree). 7) Minimum wage laws raise unemployment (unenlightened answer: disagree).

How did the six ideological groups do overall? Here they are, best to worst, with an average number of incorrect responses from 0 to 8: Very conservative, 1.30; Libertarian, 1.38; Conservative, 1.67; Moderate, 3.67; Liberal, 4.69; Progressive/very liberal, 5.26.

Americans in the first three categories do reasonably well. But the left has trouble squaring economic thinking with their political psychology, morals and aesthetics.

Study: ‘Abstinence Only’ Education Works

2 February, 2010

Unlike what the Libtards in government, the Lame Stream Media, and schools would have you believe, Abstinence Only education does work.  It has always perplexed me that a  program which receives only 25 percent of the fed’s sex-ed budget, and is not taught in many of the inner-city  schools, gets 100 percent of the blame for the slightest of  bumps in teen pregnancy rates.

Personally, I prefer the military’s method; scare the hell out of ‘em!

“Ship of Shame” is a classic.  Unfortunately, I can only find a brief sample of it on YouTube:

And, Here’s another gem from the U.S. military—albeit long and a bit slow in parts.  But, the campy, stilted delivery is a hoot to watch:

Of course, if you are the father of a teen-age daughter, there’s nothing quite like answering the door on “prom night” with a shotgun firmly in hand…  I call that my TIARA program, or, “Terrified Into Actually Respecting Abstinence.”

Abstinence-only programs might work, study says
By Rob Stein – Washington Post – Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Sex education classes that focus on encouraging children to remain abstinent can persuade a significant proportion to delay sexual activity, researchers reported Monday in a landmark study that could have major implications for U.S. efforts to protect young people against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

Only about a third of sixth- and seventh-graders who completed an abstinence-focused program started having sex within the next two years, researchers found. Nearly half of the students who attended other classes, including ones that combined information about abstinence and contraception, became sexually active.

The findings are the first clear evidence that an abstinence program could work.

“I think we’ve written off abstinence-only education without looking closely at the nature of the evidence,” said John B. Jemmott III, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who led the federally funded study. “Our study shows this could be one approach that could be used.”

The research, published in the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine, comes amid intense debate over how to reduce sexual activity, pregnancies, births and sexually transmitted diseases among children and teenagers. After falling for more than a decade, the numbers of births, pregnancies and STDs among U.S. teens have begun increasing.

The Obama administration eliminated more than $170 million in annual federal funding targeted at abstinence programs after a series of reports concluded that the approach was ineffective. Instead, the White House is launching a $114 million pregnancy prevention initiative that will fund only programs that have been shown scientifically to work — a program the administration on Monday proposed expanding to $183 million.

“This new study is game-changing,” said Sarah Brown, who leads the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. “For the first time, there is strong evidence that an abstinence-only intervention can help very young teens delay sex.”

Just a quick reminder that on today’s show, Glenn Beck will be airing his documentary, “The Revolutionary Holocaust -  Live Free or Die.”  Here is a sample to whet your appetite:

New Gallup Poll: America Continues to be a Conservative Nation

26 October, 2009

The harder the Commies push,  the larger we grow:

Conservatives Maintain Edge as Top Ideological Group
Compared with 2008, more Americans “conservative” in general, and on issues
by Lydia Saad –
Gallop

PRINCETON, NJ — Conservatives continue to outnumber moderates and liberals in the American populace in 2009, confirming a finding that Gallup first noted in June. Forty percent of Americans describe their political views as conservative, 36% as moderate, and 20% as liberal. This marks a shift from 2005 through 2008, when moderates were tied with conservatives as the most prevalent group.

kbbslvggvkexv3o8tr8f8q

The 2009 data are based on 16 separate Gallup surveys conducted from January through September, encompassing more than 5,000 national adults per quarter. Conservatives have been the dominant ideological group each quarter, with between 39% and 41% of Americans identifying themselves as either “very conservative” or “conservative.” Between 35% and 37% of Americans call themselves “moderate,” while the percentage calling themselves “very liberal” or “liberal” has consistently registered between 20% and 21% — making liberals the smallest of the three groups.

Americans Also Moving Right on Some Issues

In addition to the increase in conservatism on this general ideology measure, Gallup finds higher percentages of Americans expressing conservative views on several specific issues in 2009 than in 2008.

All of this has potentially important implications at the ballot box, particularly for the 2010 midterm elections. The question is whether increased conservatism, particularly among independents, will translate into heightened support for Republican candidates. Right now, it appears it may. Although Gallup polling continues to show the Democratic Party leading the Republican Party in Americans’ party identification, that lead has been narrowing since the beginning of the year and now stands at six points, the smallest since 2005.
