I wrote this less than 6 months ago, but it is even more of a worry now than it was back then.
“Remember when Michelle Obama talked about having to fear that her husband would be assasinated? (god, i wish I had that link..)The absolute worst thing that could happen to America right now would be precisely that. The cities would come unglued. …
I am so sorry for even thinking this. But. I think this is the way they will burn the house down. …”

I hate to think about stuff like that too, Derak, but, to be honest, I do worry about Soros and Co. manufacturing some crisis for their own benefit.
(1) We still don’t have an answer as to what the f— happened with the economy just all of a sudden, coincidentally crashing at the perfect time to turn the Presidential election last year.
(2) We already have evidence of the Left collaborating on a big lie to take down a sitting President (TANG memos)
(3) The Left already does things on a small level to either turn elections in their favor or intimidate (ACORN, voter registration fraud, campaign donation fraud, using the mass media to smear all opponents, using the power of government to smear a private citizen (Joe the Plumber), Black Panthers at polling places, smearing and intimidating citizens and businesses and churches over Prop 8, sending out union thugs to infiltrate townhalls, sending out paid operatives to pose as ‘unhinged right-wingers’ attacking Democrat offices or hold up inflammatory signs at protests, etc)
And there are many, many other things the Left (Obama, his associates in his Administration and those from his past career (Gates, Wright, Ayers, etc), the mass media, Soros, etc) has been doing the past 8 years and especially during this past 8 months.
All of these things, when presented to the American public during 2007 and 2008 to warn people about Obama and his Marxist minions, were blown off as simply smearing and wackjob conspiracy theories.
Having followed Obama’s career, which was helped by radicals all along the way, I just have to wonder what these people have cooked up to keep their power. Obama has been used his entire life to get the Left into the power they hold now. I am ashamed to admit that I wonder if they have built him up as a messiah in order to be eventually martyred in some way…
Yeah, it sounds batshit crazy, but most of the shit that Obama and his minions have done since JAN 20, 2009 would have seemed batshit crazy had someone predicted last year that Obama would do them.
Also, to add to the above examples, we have the Democrats using the deaths of Paul Wellstone and Ted Kennedy for political purposes. Granted, this is a FAR, FAR cry from assassination and then using that for political purposes.
But after we have example after example of the Left using projection and accusing the Right of things that the Left does (corruption, astroturfing, etc), we heard all during Dubya’s term that *he* was planning some kind of ‘reichstag fire’ thing or gulf of tonkin incident… could that be more projection by them? Did they accuse the Right of having the capability of doing that, because they on the Left would do that themselves?
I dunno… It’s horrible to even think this way. But after watching the escalation of depravity and corruption and vitriol and hate from the Left over the past decade, I just wonder what they are planning to do next to keep their power…

I so tire of hearing married couples whine about their marriages. As if others forced them into it or something, and now our penalty for that is to hear them bitch to us about it for the remainder of their marriage. Whether on Facebook, on blog comment sections, talking with people at work or overhearing people in public, the incessant negative and pessimistic whining about bad relationships gets to be like hearing fingernails on a chalkboard. Whenever I hear some of the things these people say and some of the ways in which they say them, I just want to say “well, gee whiz, if you are this much of an annoying, whiney pain the ass in your marriage, it’s no wonder it’s not fulfilling”.
But, every now and then, I’ll come across someone who truly appreciates the spirit and blessing of marriage. And it just warms my heart. This comment is a prime example of that:
Okay, here we go. When your married a long time and, if it is right, being married is easy. You don’t have to work on it. It comes as naturally as the sunrise. You are going to have arguements, even fights. Argue points. Don’t call each other names and say hateful crap because you’re too childish or inarticulate to express your frustrations.
Your life will be redefined. I am no longer Dan *****. I am husband, Father, even Grampa. I love that. That’s more important than Dan ***** ever was or will be. I wish this for everyone though I know it never will be. It’s as comfortable as a warm blanket on a cold night. With that smaltzy stuff out of the way, I’m going to bed. I wish you all, Buona Notte

Kudos to you, Ohio Dan. If only more people would look at their marriages in the same manner.
These idiots just can’t help themselves. In an article discussing Danica Patrick’s popularity, CBS Sports sportstool Mike Freeman just couldn’t help but get in a dig at Sarah Palin:
This week, the host of a racing show on Showtime called Patrick “the Sarah Palin of NASCAR.” I’m not sure what that means. It may be a compliment, but since Palin is all hat and no cattle, it doesn’t sound like one. You betcha.
The hypocrisy of men is astounding. That’s all the dislike of Patrick is about. It’s big, fat hypocrisy.
Plus, Patrick can race. If you haven’t seen that, then you haven’t been paying attention. She performed well at the crash-filled ARCA race at Daytona, finishing sixth. If a guy had pulled some of the masterful saves she did in that race, he’d be hailed as heroic.
Talk about astounding hypocrisy. Sarah Palin is “all hat and no cattle”? Really, bud? That’s a better description of our current Teleprompter-in-Chief, Barack Obama. You sit here and write about men disliking Danica Patrick based on hypocrisy and people not paying attention, yet don’t even realize that that is exactly how Danica is like Sarah Palin.
Sarah Palin has an accomplished political background and career in Alaska with many successes under her belt, including defeating an incumbent Governor in her own Party, successfully fighting corruption within her own Party and renegotiating leases with the largest oil company in the world for the benefit of her State’s residents. All the while raising a family of 5, including a son who is currently serving in Iraq and one who was recently born with Down Syndrome.
But, of course, to the astute mind of this brilliantly obscure sportswriter no one has heard of, that amounts to “all hat and no cattle”. Brilliant analysis, jackass. If you wanted to know if your analysis makes you come across as an ignorant tool, I have two words for you: you betcha.
Jack Eliot: I’m a World Series MVP!
Skip: That was four years ago, Jack. Last season, you hit .235.
Jack Eliot: LAST SEASON, I led this team in ninth-inning doubles in the month of August!
While Skip notes the statistic that best represents his overall performance, Jack Eliot, a washed up baseball player, had to find some ridiculously obscure statistic to defend himself. The mass media is doing the same thing with Obama. They are disregarding all the relevant poll numbers which show the nation has soured on Obama, to put forth some ridiculously obscure poll number to claim that Obama is still doing good.
As such, they show themselves to be just as washed up as Mr. Baseball was in the movie. No matter how much they try to ‘hide the decline’ in Obama’s support, the facts are getting out there.
Heh, great comment left here ripping on the Twilight series:
Vampires are not emo high school kids. Vampires are not angsty romance-novel cover models in poufy shirts. Vampires are not hunky guys who just happen to nibble your neck now and then.
Let me be clear: Vampires are walking corpses who feed on the living. When you watch Night of the Living Dead or any other “zombie” movie, you’re really watching vampires. Those dudes are vampires but we call them zombies because George Romero is a fucking illiterate.
Now and then you get a super-genius vampire who studied sorcery at the Devil’s school in Transylvania (it’s like Hogwarts, except that one out of every ten students gets dragged off to Hell instead of graduating — so long, Ron!) and by sheer superhuman force of will has retained his intelligence and cunning even in death. That’s how you get Dracula. He’s scary because he’s a shambling undead bloodsucker who isn’t a mindless killing machine. Oh, and Dracula didn’t spend his time wearing a God-damned white tie and tails. He dressed in regular clothes because he wanted to blend in, not look like some drunk in a vampire costume.
The whole idea of a “good” or sympathetic vampire is asinine. It’s like writing fiction about a nice SS officer or a sympathetic psychopath. If vampires were good, they’d go ahead and fucking die already, because their very existence is a sin against God and nature. They are cursed walking corpses who fucking kill people. That’s why we call them monsters.
If I ever meet Stephanie Meyers or Anne Rice I’m going to lock them in a room with a hunger-crazed animated corpse and see how long they think the blasphemous monstrosity is sexy.
