I’m irritated. I am sick of this government trying to make another emergency out of a possible crisis, and now the media is piling on.
This would be my obligatory post about Obama declaring a national emergency due to the outbreak(?) of swine flu in millions(?), while the media is now telling us that there are fewer doses of the vaccine than was originally thought in hopes of people jumping the fence and deciding to have live virus sprayed up their and their childrens’ noses over a bug that is considered milder than the seasonal flu.
If you have had swine flu or know of someone who has had swine flu – let me know – because I just do not believe it. I just checked the population of my island, somewhere over 200,000 and I have yet TO HEAR OF SOMEONE CONTRACTING SWINE FLU here, and this place is a total incubator because of the tourists coming from every corner of the world. I should know; I was sick, continuously, for the first 9 months I lived here.
As for a national emergency, I thought we were still under a national emergency since 9.11.2001 – and it has never been lifted; we just forgot about it.
Okay – rant over – I’m going back to writing scholarship essays…
UPDATE: Just found this CBS Piece about the actual swine flu and the CDC. BWWWWAAAAHHHHH!!!!
CDC GUESSTIMATED H1N1 CASES and REFUSED CBS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST !
Major radio stations wouldn’t play it because it was not considered politically correct. This song was never released to the public. Something to lift the spirits.
I am so sick of “politically correct”; terrorism is now called “man-made disaster”. Does it make it more palatable to certain segments of our population that all those people died, and millions were traumatized on 9.11? What is right is right, and what is wrong is wrong! Murdering thousands and traumatizing more than one nation was a vile and arrogant way of getting the world’s attention, and for what, to have the liberal left wing of the Progressive Socialist Democratic Party think if we bow down first, we will be spared. The left has flunked history and psychology.
For the record, one does not have to be a right-wing, conservative christian to know the difference, and when the liberal left wakes up and stops rationalizing wrong-headed moves, we may just start making some headway on a multitude of issues.
This nation was built with a moral compass that many have derided over the years, yet our nation is still here and we are the ones that have liberated most of the world from crazy lunatics in spite of the left screaming “appeasement”. ‘Nuff Said!

Speaking of “what is right is right”; check out this headline and story. Remember how Bambi did not back the Iranian protesters, and does any of this sound like the whole appeasement argument I just made?
President Barack Obama has refused to meet the Dalai Lama in Washington this week in a move to curry favour with the Chinese.
The decision came after China stepped up a campaign urging nations to shun the Tibetan spiritual leader.
It means Mr Obama will become the first president not to welcome the Nobel peace prize winner to the White House since the Dalai Lama began visiting Washington in 1991.
The Buddhist monk arrived in Washington on Monday for a week of meetings with Congressional leaders, celebrity supporters and interest groups, but the president will not see him until after he has made his first visit to China next month.
Samdhong Rinpoche, the Tibetan prime minister-in-exile, has accused the United States and other Western nations of “appeasement” toward China as its economic weight grows.
“Today, economic interests are much greater than other interests,” he said.
Mr Obama’s decision dismayed human rights and Tibetan support groups, who said he had made an unnecessary concession to the Chinese, who regard the Dalai Lama as a “splittist”, despite his calls for autonomy rather than independence for Tibet. The Chinese invaded in 1950, forcing the young leader to flee.
Sophie Richardson, Asia advocate for Human Rights Watch, said: “Presidents always meets the Dalai Lama and what happens? Absolutely nothing.
“This idea that if you are nice to the Chinese Communist Party up front you can cash in later is just wrong. If you lower the bar on human rights they will just move it lower and lower.” (empasis mine).
Go over, read the rest and try not to keep saying “WTF?!”.
Yesterday, the demonstration outside the Cannon Building was uneventful until a suspicious bicycle saddlebag was discovered and we were asked to clear back 1/2 block from the intersection. The general consensus was that something more was happening and sure enough, a motorcade went into the capitol building a few minutes later.
No, Nancy did not stick her face out the door, but many patriots including Beverly Perlson were in attendance.
I also found out that 4500 permits have been issued for buses to unload passengers in the city tomorrow for the march…do the math.
Since it is 9.11 and the pResident has gotten the message that this day is about REMEMBRANCE even though he wants to change the face of this day also, I am going to revisit my post from one year ago today just for comparison’s sake.
As I think almost every person on the planet knows, today is the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America by Fundamentalist Islamic Jihadists. I do not think that I am alone in trying to not think about that horrendous trauma and the subsequent rape of individual freedoms when the Patriot Act was passed by our spineless Congress, which marked the secondary attack by the terrorists. Our Founding Fathers wept.
That being said, I am writing a post, for the first time, about how this moment in history is and should be affecting our election this fall. Although Barack Obama and John McCain have decided not to be political on this day; I think it is more than fitting to be political in such a year, and years as we have seen. But first, I wanted to put up a memorial 9/11 video by onevietkid because it may help the readers understand the title of this post and what follows….
As much as I hate to agree with the current administration, somebody has been keeping America attack free for the last 7 years. Alot of someones have been putting country first, as all of us should throughout each day of our lives as we have been blessed to be born American Citizens. That being said, I must state loudly and unequivocally:
Barack Obama, How Dare You Run For President!!
How Dare You Put Your Inexperienced, Empty Chair Out In Front Of The American Public As A Choice For President!
How Dare You!!!
Do I think that a Barack Obama administration would continue to keep us from being attacked again? No.
Do I think that a junior senator from Chicago with 143 days of experience in the Senate before he started running for the presidency is going to keep us safe and move our country forward; here and internationally? No.
Do I think that a candidate that lacks foreign relations, combat, economic, executive, or war experience will make a good president in these times? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! No…
Do I think that a candidate that has never chaired one of his own committees in the Senate will be able to put a worthy cabinet together, delegate responsiblity and lead a country? No.
Do I think that a community organizer than has been endorsed by every terrorist nation in the world is going to look like a strong leader not to be f*cked with? No.
Do I think that a candidate than cannot even run a presidential campaign against the opposition without attacking the opposing vice presidential candidate every despicable way possible, has the good judgement to know which battles to fight? No.
Do I think that a candidate that stayed in an Anti-American church while race-hate was being preached has the testicular fortitude not to blink at a crucial, dangerous moment? No.
Do I think that a candidate that gamed the primaries can somehow become honest in the White House and believe in country first before individual ego? No.
Do I think that a candidate that has so many questionable associates and “mentors” who either hated on America verbally, or bombed America literally is going to keep our constitution safe? No.
Do I think that a candidate that voted to give immunity to the telecom companies so that they may continue to wiretap Americans without impunity will guard our freedoms? No.
Do I think that a “citizen of the world” who throws rock concerts, beer fests and speeches in foreign nations instead of meeting Americans that are being hardest hit by the price of oil and food, actually puts country first? No.
Do I think that a candidate who would not travel to honor/visit wounded troops will be thinking about those lives he may have to put into harm’s way with one decision? No.
Do I think that Barack Obama is in this race for himself and to trade up to a bigger house, more prestige and to make unprecedented American History as the first (half white/half) black president? Yes. Do I think he and Mishy have been all jacked up about that history fact since they met? Probably. All Ego, All The Time.
Does Michelle Obama and her very special brand of racism scare the bejesus out of me and mine? Yes. Do I think that Gumby scurries away to hide when Mishy looks at him sideways? Yes.
Do I think that many hostile, terrorist filled nations are just salivating while they wait for Americans to do something unbelievably stupid and downright moronic as electing Barack Obama? OH YEAH!
(I am sure there are more reasons that you my dear readers can add in comments…)
I would be a fool to vote for Barack Obama because he has not shown good judgement in his choice of associates or decision making abilities; his deception and allowing of gaming of the primaries in his favor, or his spineless waffling on every major issue.
I would be a fool to vote for Barack Obama because I believe he is WEAK AND SPINELESS and will allow our country to be overrun by the very same assholes that bombed us 7 years ago because he will blink when he should have stood tall.
Fundamentalist Islamic Jihadists believe that if you will not convert, you will then die. Enough Said.
