BOEHNER: Have you forgotten who you ran as?

12 December 2013

“I think they’re pushing our members in places where they don’t want to be,” Boehner fumed, “and frankly I just think that they’ve lost all credibility.”

con·stit·u·en·cy (kənˈstiCHo͞oənsē/) noun 1. a body of voters in a specified area who elect a representative to a legislative body. “the politician who wishes to remain in the good graces of his constituency”

When Boehner stepped into the role of Speaker of The House, though we did not elect him, we all became his constituency – whether liberal, moderate, or conservative. As for their “members”, I can only ask members of what?! These are supposedly elected representatives. They are supposed to be representing their constituency. Where they “want to be” should be irrelevant. Where their constituency want them to be should be their driving motivation. Though the loud voices being heard are the conservative organizations, just who do you thinks sends these organizations the donations that allow them to operate?

Boehner, Ryan, and anyone else on the alleged conservative side of the house need to take a step backward and consider their position. Most, if not all, were elected because of their alleged conservatism. We who elect conservatives are increasing weary of the constant caving we see from those who sport that “R” next to their state abbreviation. YOU are undermining your party through your actions as your base turns their collective back on you in support of “third party” conservatives. Ultimately, this ensures that those sporting a “D” get into office – and we both are defeated.

And it should be fairly clear from the above whom we conservatives think has lost their credibility…

Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Religion, and the “religion of peace”

17 September 2012

You’ll accept our peace if we have to beat it into you!

I know I’ve been silent for months. My self-imposed hiatus had more to do with my absolute disgust with the political and economic situations in the US and my absolute disdain for the players – I simply couldn’t give voice to what I was feeling: our media – our traitorous media, as a whole, needs to be purged. The Democratic party – the traitorous democratic party needs to seek its roots (not the ones in Soviet Russia; the other ones). But an article I read this morning – a simple report – needs comment.  Why? Because I don’t get it. Really, I don’t. Every day I see disgraceful affronts to the Christian faith. There are letters of protest, email petitions, and speeches from the pulpit from the Christians. Yes, the Christians get angry, but no one is harmed, no one dies. More importantly, those responsible are left to create their perversions against the Christians unabated. For the most part, their protests are ignored or mocked by the media and society as a whole. They’re a buncha holy rollers – hahhaha! Lookit the Bible thumpers – snort!

Why is this suddenly bothering me now? We’ve known this disparity, both in religious demeanor and in society’s response, for a long time. Why now? Well, someone created a film which painted the founder of “the religion of peace” in a, shall we say, less than favorable light. The response is as it always is with these “peaceful” practitioners of islam. All hell breaks loose. US embassies in muslim countries are sacked outright – attacks on US soil – and US citizens are murdered by the proponents of this “religion of peace”.

The US response? Apologies all around, and the purported creator of the film is arrested to determine if publishing of his film somehow broke the law. Some contrived issue with probation for some previous conviction that would have made publication of this film a crime – not the content, mind you, but that the responsible individual would have used electronic means to publish it. My, my, my – how hokey do they get? And how absolutely stupid do they take us for?! Had this been a you-tube of this person breaking their neck doing parkour stunts, or bashing Christians, or some other practice viewed as so pedestrian by our government and our society, do you think there would have been a second look? Do you think a posse of sheriffs would have been sent out to bring him in for some contrived violation of parole? Not likely: it was the content that has driven his insurrection; not some trumped up violation of conditions of parole.

And am I the only one that sees the hypocrisy? The glaring double standard? Where is the alleged artist who created “Piss Christ”? Was s/he dragged in to languish in a cell somewhere while they trumped up charges to demonstrate that the making of his/her “art” was somehow illegal? Did Øbama or his administration offer any apologies to the mass of offended Christians? No, of course not. No need to pander to the Christians – particularly when you’ve duped the majority of them into believing that taking ones wealth at the point of a gun and giving it to someone else (who may be a slothful generational thief) is a manifestation of Jesus’ call to charitable giving. No need to pander to Christians because they do not believe in demonstrating their angst over your actions using your still-warm corpse.

Washinton DC: Any interpretation of “making no law respecting the establishment of religion” and “equality of each citizen under the law” makes what you’ve done in this case shameful, illegal, and entirely too telling of your motivation.

The Masquerade

7 May 2012

The Bullshitvik leads the charge…

Lifted wholesale from The Patriot Post:

“Nearly 1,000 protesters were arrested in New York between Sept. 18 and Oct. 15. Police collected information on each arrestee’s name, age, sex, criminal charge, home address and — in most cases — race. The median value of the homes of the arrestees was $305,000 — a far higher number than the $185,400 median value of owner-occupied homes of the rest of us. Ninety-five of the arrestees lived in homes valued at more than $500,000. Those who rented paid a median rent of $1,850 per month. Of the 984 protesters arrested, at least 797 are white. One Occupy Wall Street protester arrested — presumably, if you listen to the mainstream media, penniless and from a blue-collar family — lived in an $850,000 home in the nation’s capital. ” –economist Walter E. Williams

As many have long suspected, the “Øccupy” crowd is clearly not who they would have you believe they are. These people are not the poor, decrepit victims of a heartless, capitalist society, but wealthy socialist tyrants who wish to have more power over your lives; more ability to take from you for the “good of others”. And, as history has demonstrated time and again, those “others” will not be those who the socialists claim to to be helping, but those socialists themselves.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, elections clearly do have repercussions. It is my sincere hope that the yet unfelt repercussion of the 2008 election will not be the destruction for all time of The United States of America as the last remaining bastion of freedom.

Judicial Activism vs. Unconstitutionalism

2 April 2012

The core of Øbamacare is death to the Constitution

Oh, boy – a rarity. Two Pateratic posts in one day.

The would-be dictator at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue cautions that, should the Supreme Court rightfully reject the individual mandate and, with it, Øbamacare, that they will have been guilty of judicial activism.

Really?!

By doing what they’re supposed to do – defend the constitution – they are activist in his eyes. While, I guess, redefining the Constitution through, say, Roe v Wade isn’t? Redefining marriage from what it has been for literally millenia is not judicial activism? Overturning results in which the majority of the people have made a decision is not judicial activism, but overturning a decision made merely by the majority of congressmen would be? Of course! It’s only judicial activism when it doesn’t suit his purposes.

And, I suppose, an executive branch that ignores constitutional limits – and the court and congress that lets him get away with it – are not activist, either?

What kind of twisted logic is this jackass operating under?

In any case, if The Supremes do not overturn Øbamacare, then it is up to we, the people. This must not stand. The individual mandate in Øbamacare removes any limit from what the federal government can do to us under interpretation of the Constitution today. It must not stand!
