DailyKos: Some messed up compass!

w_masthead_wads.jpg

aka “The Daily Whine”

I have, and always will be, a firm believer in the old adage, “Know thy enemy”.  With that said, I have decided that there is a need from time to time to stroll over to the Daily Kos and see what kind of drivel they are conjuring up.  Well, to comically quote Peanut, the purple furry ape in ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s comedy act, “OH MY GOD!”

 Left of Center has taken on a whole new meaning!  The post that caught my eye on this visit to the Kosacks was this one, here. It addresses the ever popular “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy” on the simple act of providing some sort of photo ID when voting in this country. Now, after reading the long winded post by Avenging Angel, I guess that some people missed the “common sense line” when they were born.

We, as a nation, regardless of political affiliation, are regularly asked to present some form of Photo ID when we do any of the following:

Cash a Check
Pay with a Check
Use a Credit Card
Open a Bank Account
Close a Bank Account
Pick Up a Child at School
Apply for a Passport
Travel within the United States
Travel outside of the United States
When we are pulled over by Law Enforcement
When we are questioned by Law Enforcement
Applying for a job
Applying for almost any kind of insurance
Entering a Government Building
Renting a Car ….

…… I think you get the point. So, why? Why is it so far fetched to simply ask for some sort of photo ID when heading to the Voting Booth? We do it in all different facets of our daily lives without even thinking about it, yet it makes people on the far left go NUTS when it is used in the context of voting! They claim that it is an attack on their party, it will keep Democrats from going to the polls. Huh? And the worst part is, most Americans already have a Driver’s License or a State Issued photo ID card and many of us have passports as well. So, I guess the question is, what percentage of Voting Americans will be turned away from going to the polls by refusing to obtain some sort of Photo ID?

“…the Indiana, Georgia and other similar laws are an essential ingredient of the Republican strategy of “Divide, Suppress and Conquer” which aims to drive down the participation of potential Democratic and independent voters through unprecented redistricting, curbs on registration, onerous new ID requirements, and polling place eligibility challenges…”

Why is voting being singled out while other such mundane tasks as banking are considered acceptable?

Redistricting? (Is that even in the legislation?)

Curb Registration? It hasn’t stopped people from getting Driver’s Licenses, what makes the Left think that is will effect voters?

ID Requirements? There are ID requirement for just about everything on this planet – let alone in this Nation! The EU has even more stringent use of photo IDs and all the other nations of the Western World. Hmm, I wonder if they know about the ID cards that are required in some Middle-Eastern nations? The ones where they (GASP!) include an individual’s religion!

Poling Place Eligibility Challenges? So, should we be assuming that all polling places are now run, nationwide, by we neo-cons? Does that mean that we should expect different behavior from poll workers during the Democratic Primaries vs. the Republican Primaries? What in God’s name are these people thinking???

So, I guess they have no problem with all the other kinds of fraud that goes on in our nation today. Social Security Fraud, Identity Theft, Insurance Fraud, Tax Fraud … all of these types of fraud cost our nation and taxpayers billions each year. Why then, please just let me ask why, we can’t tackle voter fraud?

Ok, I want to see hard numbers. I want to see this Avenging Angel to go out into a highly Democratic Congressional District and ask potential voters how to curb voter fraud. Who wants to bet the farm that over 80% will say that a photo ID will suffice?

Once again, the Left does what it does best, whine and not present a logical, well thought out alternative. But then again, they have no time for that because they only actively participate in the Blame Game.

Dick Morris: Are Hillary and Bill imploding?

hill.jpg

Like it or not, Dick Morris has an insider’s view to the Clintons that can only be rivaled by George Stephanoplis. Morris’ take on the former First Family is much more than water-cooler fodder and politically minded Americans truly need to listen to him. As I have commented on other blogs, few here in New York believe that Hillary cares for our great state, we were merely a springboard to her run for the White House. The reasons for choosing New York were many I am sure, none being more enticing than the amount of money she could generate from the wealthiest of New Yorkers.

Yet, what Hillary never took into consideration is the one thing, particularly since 9/11, that makes New Yorkers who were are. We demand many things, one of them being loyalty. You don’t have to go much beyond Yankee Stadium to have a visual perception of this fact. Many of us around the Empire State are keenly aware of the fact that Hillary used us and are none too happy about it.

Here Dick Morris nails Hillary for her smoke and mirrors routine and the fact that Bill is far too involved with the day to events of her campaign. Simply put Hillary cannot have it both ways yet, that is exactly what she is trying to do. She tries to appear strong in standing up to the Boys Club but yet when they push back she retreats to the female portion of the Democratic Party based to stir up some more publicity. Make no mistake about it, Hillary’s appearance at Welsley the day after the most recent Presidential Debate was no fluke. It was methodically planned. If she got stomped on, she could have a Ladies Night to complain about the men or if she had a successful debate, she could scream “Girl Power” with her alma mater fan club. As Dick Morris regularly reminds us, everything in the Clinton Camp is methodically planned and scheduled, not much unlike a movie script.

Yet the question is, has all of the marketing and publicity leading up to this film’s faux -pas ridden premiere by the leading couple that the voting public just isn’t going to spend their hard earned votes on this film that is sure to flop?

Let’s just say that I’m sure that the majority of loyal New Yorkers will not be waiting in line to see this film.

Why Obama can NOT be President – A no-brainer!

salute.jpg

I may well be a little late on this one but I am going to post about it anyway because I feel so strongly about this.  This picture indeed says a thousand words, and then some!  First, the obvious, which may not even need to be written down but any individual who wants to be at the forefront of this nation, better damn well respect our flag and sing our national anthem.  The fact that Barack Obama made a point of doing this, it was obviously premeditated, speaks volumes about what is really going on in his head.  Why would he do something like that?  To grab the far-left anti-American sect of his party?  The Code Pinkos must have been like lap dogs when this went public.  

What kind of a message does this send to the rest of the world when a candidate for the most powerful position on the globe doesn’t, even for the sake of propriety, give the impression that he respects the two most significant things that symbolize the nation that he wants to lead?

As the popular e-mail that has been forwarded around for the past few weeks stated, “this man wants to be the Commander in Chief?”   Thanks to the far left and the anti-America crowd, our troops are in dire need of a future C in C who will respect the same flag that they do, the flag that they willingly give their life for.   I strongly believe the old adage that (paraphrasing here) freedom means more to the men and women who believe their nation standing tall and proud is more valuable than their own individual life.   This action on the part of Obama, clearly confirms that he, just like Hillary does in my estimation, see being President as a milestone in their personal political careers, not an honor.  They want the power, not the humility that comes with the post.

Couple this with the Obama camp’s response to the flap and there can be no doubt that the possibility of an Obama Administration should be truly feared.   His Spokesperson said simply that sometimes Obama puts his hand over his heart and sometimes he doesn’t.  Sometimes he doesn’t?  It is just mindboggling that there are people who still support this man.

Even though it got less press than this controversy did, don’t forget about his recent issues with wearing a flag pin.  How can you want to represent our nation, command our military, mold international policy and influence the world economic landscape and not respect what got you there in the first place?

America can not look at these events as separate from one another, but as a collective summation of who Barack Obama really is.  And, who is he?  He is a man who does not have the makings to be president of these United States.

Why Duncan Hunter needs to be our Next President

bust_duncan.jpg

Republican Candidate Duncan Hunter (R-CA)

    I am publicly stating who I support for the 2008 Republican nominee for President, California Representative, Duncan Hunter.  Why?  The reasons are many but the primary underlying reason is, he better than any other candidate, be they Republican or Democrat, at understand the world landscape both economically and politically.  His over all goal is a stronger more protected America. 

    Hunter, more than any other name on the ballot, is a student of history, not just recent history, he, as they say, sees the big picture.  Unlike politicians of the past who have given away the American Dream as a good faith gesture to the world, Hunter wants to protect what is ours.  On a regular basis, we always seems to be the ones extending the olive branch to the world only to have it stepped on.

    In recent weeks he has spoken out harshly about the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) as it gives US sovereignty of the sea to (gulp) the UN.  Hunter stated that:

“It is imperative that our nation does not surrender decision making power for military navigation or resource extraction, especially in this age of terrorism with technology and weapons proliferation. And adding a new set of UN bureaucrats with license to tax and adjudicate disputes is the last thing this country needs.” … “Rest assured no treaty that infringes on the sovereignty of the United States, or further empowers the United Nations, will get anything but a trip to the waste basket in a Hunter Administration.”

See what I mean?  This guy “gets it”!

     He is the only candidate who consistently sees China as someone we should be cautious of, while everyone else sees China as a former Communist nation on the brink of democracy.  Other see their exploding market as a potential for American big business to blossom, while Hunter sees the same thing, he is thinking of America first, the business executives second.

    Just today he released a press release in which he publicly calls on Mitt Romney, founder of Bain Capital and Republican presidential candidate, to put an end to a business deal with a Chinese company who is negociating for the acquisition of US defense conractor 3COM.  The kicker here is that the founder of this company is an officer of the Peoples Liberation Army of Communist China and is being accused of providing Saddam Hussein with the technology to target US aircraft and helping the Taliban develop surveillance equipment.

Hunter said to Romney in writing;

“I am extremely concerned that Governor Romney’s company would tout a highly suspect Chinese corporation as a strategic partner,” stated Hunter. “Forming a business partnership with a corporation known to have direct ties with terrorists and dictators while, at the same time, openly seeking to acquire a major U.S. corporation that performs vital cyber security work for the Department of Defense, can only be characterized as irresponsible.”

What other candidate would step out and do the right thing like this?  Duncan Hunter does his homework, that is what will make him a very effective POTUS. This wasn’t a political ploy, this was Hunter looking out for America, for you and me.

The more you read about him, the more, I am sure, you will realize that he sees things the way most Amiercans do.
