Just gotta get this off my chest

I fucking hate Bruce Springsteen. Can't stand his shit, except perhaps for a couple of cuts from his album "Nebraska" which nobody ever plays. Bleah.

That is all.

Update to my last post

See "A Radical Idea" just below. I must have been fucking high.

After this shit: I will never, ever, ever vote for a fucking Dummycrat. Even to force a race over an even worse Dummycrat. There's no such thing as one Dummycrat worse than another.


UPDATE: The link is now broken (actually, it goes to a different vote). This was the bill to protect citizens who report suspicious activity in good faith from later being hauled into civil court. It was overwhelmingly opposed by Democrats.

A Radical Idea

I think that, to finally force the Democrats to act like adults where the War on Terror is concerned, it will be necessary to put one in the White House.

There, I've said it. It's painful, for someone in my position - but I think it'd be impossible for anyone further to the right than I to even consider. But I think the Republic will survive the obvious disadvantages, particularly if the Congress remains relatively evenly matched.

The only question is, who?

If the GOP nomination is sewn up by the time the Primaries are held in my state, I may vote as a Democrat and cast a ballot for Barack Hussein Obama. I wouldn't be able to keep my gorge down long enough to vote for Clinton, and Edwards is just another narcissistic peacock.

Our pals the Italians

Remember the Sgrena incident?

An Italian court is going to try the US soldier who fired on her speeding car to protect his checkpoint. For murder.

Can we question their patriotism now?

From a far-left USENET group I read, someone is commenting on today's rocket attack on the US embassy in Athens:

Apparently they were aiming at the US Emblem and missed, destroying a toilet instead.

And someone else responds:


Nice, huh?

An open letter to the Democratic leadership

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Speaker of the House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

The Honorable Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Madam Speaker and Senator Reid:

First, my congratulations to both of you and to the Democratic Party in having retaken both houses of Congress in the recent elections.

I come to you as one who has never voted for a Democrat, but who has -like so many others - become increasingly frustrated with the failure of the Republicans to take a leadership role in returning the operation of this country to first principles.

The Democrats have the opportunity, at this historic time, to capture a more permanent majority via appealing to the values and principles of classical liberalism. Your party already represents an attractive alternative by virtue of owing no obeisance to the religious right and to the isolationist element so prevalent in mine. On the other hand, however, there are a few areas where people such as me find the Democrats to be seriously lacking. I’m sure you have at your disposal any number of experts who can expand on that point, but I want to offer two major examples:

Stop trying to raise our taxes to the Moon. The moral questions surrounding confiscatory taxation quite aside, it has been shown time and again that limited federal taxation is much healthier both for the larger economy and for the treasury itself. I call on you to make the Bush tax cuts permanent, and to expand upon that theme by making further cuts where and when possible.

Start respecting the entire Bill of Rights. Over the past couple of decades, gun "control" measures instituted at the federal level have been rolled back or modified in favor of legitimate firearms ownership, and numerous state measures have been put in place to compel so-called "shall-issue" concealed-handgun licensure. All of these changes have had positive results, with statistically insignificant examples of the kind of violence and lawlessness breathlessly predicted by opponents of the Second Amendment. I call on you to oppose efforts within your party to reinstitute failed measures such as the ban on so-called "assault weapons," and to work to encourage or even compel state-by-state reciprocal-recognition agreements for concealed-handgun licenses.

Thank you for your consideration of these matters. I urge you to take this opportunity seriously - if you do so, you may be surprised to find many first-time Democrat voters in the next and subsequent elections.
