Happy MLK day!
In case you were wondering, no I am not watching the inauguration of the “lord and savior”.
I would rather slit my own throat.
In fact, I wrote this post over the weekend, which means that while you are reading this I’m probably curled up in a chair at Starbucks, with a cappuccino and my copy of Les Miserables. I’m going to studiously avoid all television, news, and social networks today so that I don’t have an aneurysm.
It seems fitting to quote Dr. Martin Luther King on this day, it is his birthday after all. He once gave a speech, I’m sure you have all heard it before, but let me quote it for you again.
There was no triumph in his face, no elation, only the still intensity of contemplating the enormity of the smallness of the enemy who was destroying the world. He felt as if, after a journey of years through a landscape of devastation, past the ruins of great factories, the wrecks of powerful engines, the bodies of invincible men, he had come upon the despoiler, expecting to find a giant – and had found a rat eager to scurry for cover at the first sound of a human step. If this is what has beaten us, he thought, the guilt is ours.

I am confident that Romney is going to win this and in January we will be watching the Inauguration of President Mitt Romney.
I will be at the polls tomorrow and I will cast my vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, the men can bring our country back from the downward spiral that President Obama has put us in.
This is the most important, most exciting, most exhausting, election that has happened in my lifetime and, god willing, it will be the most important one of my lifetime.
I’m not really sure I can deal with such a stressful election season again.
Just remember to
So that barely qualified moderator at the VP debate opened up the can of worms that is the pointless abortion debate once again (probably on orders from Dem. higher ups to try and once again churn up this dumb “War on Women”…ignoring that it is this administration which is pumping money to the very anti-women Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, negotiating with the very same Taliban who shoots girls if they dare to try and learn, and views all women as nothing but Julia who must be taken care of because they couldn’t possibly do anything for themselves*
But this brought up two points.
The first being that you’re an idiot if you think Republicans are going to outlaw abortion?
Why are you an idiot?
I felt this made a great follow up to my post about why a constitutional amendment on abortion, birth control, of gay marriage would never happen.
As I’ve recently found my admiration and respect for Glenn Beck to be rekindled (so much so that I’ve been getting up at 6 in the morning to catch his entire radio show before class) and Dana Loesch will be there, you can bet your ass I’m going to be in attendance.
It’s rare to have a local political conference of the conservative type (even in this red state). The last one I attended was Right Online in Las Vegas this summer and that was quite an adventure.
It looks like a great line up of speakers at the event, which will include a 2 hour grassroots training seminar and a 3 hour rally from 4pm to 7pm. If you are a local reader, you should shell out the $15 ticket fee and join me there. Tweet me (@MeredithAncret) if you come.
If you don’t come, never fear. I’ll likely be live tweeting at least portions of the event at that same twitter account and I’ll do a write up of the even afterwards.
For a write up on a previous Freepac event, look no further than Dirty Sex & Politics whose author, Donlyn Turnbull, covered their event in Dallas this summer.
PS: Who else is excited to watch Paul Ryan completely humiliate Joe ‘Gaffe’ Biden Thursday night?
Also Atlas Shrugged Part II comes out this Friday. Buy a ticket, support the movie, and drag your friends to see it. I have it on good authority (from CommunismKills on tumblr who went to an early release) that’s much better than the first one and definitely worth your time and money. I’ll post about that after I go to see it as well.
Do you remember the reports surfacing that Iran was going to be putting ships, equipped with long range missiles, just outside America’s maritime borders to intimidate us?
Not that it worked, because, in the words of one of the comments on an article from that day “They would fry their own equipment”. I mean, it’s Iran. The idea that any of their missiles would actually hit us or that their ships could even make the trip and set up some sort of Flotilla, as the Iranian Navy commander, Admiral Habibollah Sayari, called it back then, is just about as laughable as the plot of the new Red Dawn movie.*
But the viability of their plan isn’t why I’m reminding everyone of this.
I’m reminding them of this, because Obama seems hellbent on being Ahmadinejad being his new best friend and organizing play dates between the United States and Iran, while he stops excepting Netanyahu’s calls and removes Israel from America’s friend’s list.
Israel has been our ally for a very long time, may I remind you.
Israel is one of the few countries in the Middle East who celebrates freedom, has equal rights for women and LGBT members of their society (while other countries strip women of their rights and strip LGBT people of their lives), and promotes freedom of religion and freedom of speech.
These are things that mirror American ideals. So why is our President cancelling meetings with Netanyahu and, instead, verbally getting cozy with Ahmadinejad, the leader of a country that has intentionally tried to militarily intimidate our country and doesn’t exactly mirror us in their view of freedoms.
In fact, they don’t have any respect for the freedoms we hold dear in our country, their constitution doesn’t even respect the sovereignty of other nations, because their intent is to put a one world ISLAMIC government in control.
Don’t believe me? Here’s part of their constitution’s preamble.
in accordance with the aims and aspirations set out above, with the hope that this century will witness the establishment of a universal holy government and the downfall of all others.
- based on a translation provided by the Iranian embassy in London
Where we have a Bill of Rights, even the preamble of their constitution goes against the very basic freedoms that America should be promoting.
Want some examples?**
WOMEN IN THE CONSTITUTION
In the creation of Islamic foundations, all the human forces which had been in the service of general foreign exploitation will recover their true identity and human rights. In doing so, women who have endured more tyranny up till now under the idolatrous order, will naturally vindicate their rights further.
Women were drawn away from the family unit and (put into) the condition of “being a mere thing”, or “being a mere tool for work” in the service of consumerism and exploitation. Re-assumption of the task of bringing up religiously-minded men and women, ready to work and fight together in life’s fields of activity, is a serious and precious duty of motherhood. And so acceptance of this responsibility as more serious and – from the Islamic point of view -a loftier ground for appreciation (lit: value) status (lit: greatness) will be forthcoming.
You know how feminist’s these days get so upset about women who ‘sell-out’ by choosing to stay home and be full-time mom’s and homemakers?
If Iran had their way that would be your ONLY option ladies.
Because having a life outside the home, having choices, that’s EXPLOITATION. No, your real freedom comes from being coerced into being a housewife with no rights outside those that your husband gives you.
THE RELIGIOUS ARMY
In the organization and equipping of the countries defense forces, there must be regard for faith and religion as their basis and rules. And so the Islamic Republic’s army, and the corps of Revolutionary Guards must be organized in accordance with this aim. They have responsibility not only for the safeguarding of the frontiers, but also for a religious mission, which is Holy War (JIHAD) along the way of God, and the struggle to extend the supremacy of God’s Law in the world.
“Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of God and your enemies, and others beside”.
Quotation from the Arabic
Jihad, extend the supremacy of God’s (Allah’s) Law in the world, religious mission, strike terror into the heart of the enemies of your God (which would be anyone who doesn’t follow their God, fyi).
THE JUDICIARY OF THE CONSTITUTION
Thus provision must be made for the establishment of a judicial system on the basis of Islamic justice, manned by just judges, well acquainted with the exact rules of the Islamic code.
Sharia Law anyone? Sounds lovely.
THE PUBLIC MEDIA
The public media (radio-television) must take their place in the process of development of the Islamic revolution, and must serve in the propagation of Islamic culture. In this sphere they must look for opportunities for a healthy exchange of differing ideas, and must rigorously refrain from the propagation and encouragement of destructive and anti-Islamic qualities (ideas).
Freedom of the press? Not so much.
Yeah, that seems like a good country to be allying ourselves with.
Great job Obama.
Great job liberals.
I think they’ve lost the plot, maybe we all have, but I’m here to help you find it again.
*who thought that implying North Korea could invade America was even a plausible plot? Seriously. They should have kept the plot they originally, wrote. At least China has the numbers to attempt an invasion.
** All examples come from the Iran Chamber Society.
While I was celebrating my 22nd birthday last night, The Blaze was interviewing Julia Rodriguez, a delegate at the Democratic National Convention.
Looks like we found that Julia character that Obama is helping so very much.*
By the way, the secret service is investigating her for saying that she would kill Governor Romney if she ever saw him in person.
“Romney will destroy this country completely” she repeated angrily. Then, Rodriguez grabbed the microphone and emotionally screamed “If I see him” referring to Romney “I would like to kill him!”
Charming lady, I can see why Obama is so desperate to please her. He might just be scared for his life.
And as a last comment about women at the DNC, here’s my parting thought about Sandra Fluke and her dumb-ass speech.
Liberals want to say Conservatives think Sandra Fluck is a whore. No conservative thinks that. After all, whores earn their money.
*I’m aware that this is not the actual woman in the video. That Julia, like Obama’s girlfriend, was just an amalgamation of all the traits of the women who want to rely on the government to be their sugar daddy, but this coincidence was too delicious to pass up.
It’s not like they aren’t already operating on the maturity and intelligence level of a 4 year old, screaming “MINE MINE!” at all the other kids toys, but it’s going to get worse.
A lot worse.
In fact, it’s already started.
I’ve started running a political blog on tumblr (partially to blame for my slow updates here on wordpress). I have cultivated a large group of awesome gay and straight conservatives on the website, but it is still an overwhelmingly liberal site in most ways.
The stupidity and mudslinging is reaching a fever pitch.
Want proof? Visit the tumblr tag pages for things like ‘Ann Romney’, ‘Paul Ryan’, or just the word ‘conservative’.
If tumblr isn’t your thing, check out Debbie Wasserman Schultz twitter account or the accounts of other prominent figures in the Democratic party. Or just the twitter accounts of liberals in general.
They’ve stopped pretending to caring about facts and started the equivalent of a child throwing themselves on the floor and screaming ‘NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!’ or a teenager running into their room and screaming ‘I HATE YOU, WHY ARE YOU RUINING MY LIFE. I WISH I WAS DEAD!’*
Or similar to a monkey throwing his own feces.
This is about how an argument with a liberal goes at this point.
Liberal: Paul Ryan want to GUT medicare!
Conservative: Actually, no. Paul Ryan is working to make Medicare a feasible plan for all those currently on the plan and for those would go on the plan in the next 10 years. After that a voucher program will be instated. Obama is actually the one gutting Medicare.
Liberal: NO HE’S NOT YOU RACIST!
Conservative: Wow, that was uncalled for. Obama is gutting Medicare. He’s using funds that were supposed to used to keep medicare solvent for several more years and he’s funneling them into funding Obamacare.
Liberal: But Paul Ryan thinks rape is a ‘method of conception!’
Conservative: Wait…weren’t we talking about Medicare a second ago? Also Ryan was ACTUALLY talking about pregnancy, whether it ocurrs through rape or consensual sex, and in that case…rape is a method of conception.
Liberal: BUT ROMNEY AND RYAN HATE WOMEN AND GAY PEOPLE AND WANT TO SHIP ALL OUR JOBS OUT THE COUNTRY AND BAN IMMIGRATION AND….
Conservative: Whoah! Slow down. None of those things are true. *starts trying to lay out facts*
Liberals: Shut up you stupid racist bitch/asshole!**
Conservative: *walks away and mutters* Lord give me the patience to control myself and not go back and punch that moron in the face.***
Yes, that’s more and more what we are hearing from liberals. No facts, just accusations and storms of misinformation, hoping they can confuse the voting public for long enough that they will experience a moment of delusional insanity, much as they did 4 years ago, and vote for Obama again.
They are getting desperate, they are getting scared, because they can see the end coming.
As I tweeting to Debbie Wasserman Schultz last night…their desperation tastes like sweet, sweet victory to me.
Obama needs to get ready to find a new place to live.
Romney is moving into the house on Pennsylvania Avenue come January.
On a side note.
Here, have a psuedo-campaign video. It’s my new favorite. Based on one of the line’s from Paul Ryan’s speech last night at the Republican National Convention.
“College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. Everyone who feels stuck in the Obama economy is right to focus on the here and now. And I hope you understand this too, if you’re feeling left out or passed by: You have not failed, your leaders have failed you.” – Paul Ryan
*my response to liberals in that case is ‘So do I, we finally agree on something’.
**depending on gender of conservative. Sometimes interchangeable though.
*** I may not believe in a personal god, but I find myself praying to one more and more often and hoping I will not go back and punch these people’s light out. It helps that most of the arguments are the on the internet.
