Captains Quarters has the top 5 harry reid myths, but this summary pretty much explained why I think the democratic congress is completely retarded and out of line.
General Petraeus Does Not Know What Is Happening In Iraq
SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): “I Don’t Believe Him.” Q: “…General Petraeus is going to come to the Hill and make it clear to you that there is progress going on in Iraq, that the so-called surge is working. Will you believe him when he says that?” SEN. REID (D-NV): “No, I don’t believe him, because it’s not happening. All you have to do is look at the facts.” (CNN’s “The Situation Room,” 04/23/07)
David H. Petraeus:
Four-Star General, Commander, Multinational Forces-Iraq
Senator Who Doesn’t Listen To Commanders of Military Forces
Now, let me qualify this. I’m not one of those righty’s that is all up on abortion, thinking there should be a gun in every house (there isn’t one in mine, and holding a gun was my job at one time) I don’t believe in the bucchanaan isolationism that Pat loves to use as a rationale for his hatred of this war. I think that “pledge of allegiance” decision was made in good faith, I think that roy moore should have been removed from office.
But I also think that congress should get the hell out of the face of people who do the dirty work while these self centered bastards are willing to sell their lives for votes, especially considering that the dems have 9/10 odds that every dead servicemember is republican, or there abouts (actually it’s just over 4/5, but you know hyperbole is supposed to work) and I DO believe that the dem’s feel so safe that they can temporarily damage this nation in order to gain political control.
That said, I’m from a democrat region, I think I know 1 republican that I’m not related to who I occassionaly interact with, and he is exclusive on abortion. Democrats are people, I don’t hate democrats, in fact I like them, seeing as how I don’t have a choice, and even if I did, I would still like most of the democrats that I know and that I like.
However, I think those democrats are like that 1, “one issue” republican. They are 1 issue, and don’t understand the broader political and national requirements of policy. It is a shame, and it should be repaired. We don’t need paris hilton saying “vote or die” (she didn’t vote, why isn’t she dead?) or Christina Aguillera saying “we are making a movement, we are making a movement” (really christina? you should read a bit more) and we need politicians to take the position of scientists (Gore) just as much as we need scientists to take the position of politicians (sagan)
My point is that these people are wrong. Not because they are disinterested in America, or what is best about America, rather, they are indifferent of those who know.
Christina loves russel simmons, he’s the author of her politics.
Paris Loves Puff daddy (absentee ballot, mailed from NY, paris didn’t vote) for her politics.
Laurie David thinks gore is a scientist, even though he is a politician.
Angelina Jolie thinks that she brings food to Africa, when actually it’s the wage slave farmer.
And Worst of all? Harry Reid thinks he’s more informed about the matters of war than a general, not just A General, but The General in charge of theater operations.
See, the left right now isn’t offering a different plan of action to the method of engaging in the war (that happened in WWII BTW, I understand that Market Garden was opposed by many at the time, but once they realized they were in the minority they backed down, not to mention the use of the navy and island hopping campaign offered by nimitz, rather than the 1 million man invasion of formosa as a central base was HATED by many especially by macarthur) but rather going to an extreme of conflict.
Admit it left, the right knows it. America wins, or America loses. Define YOUR victory, and your loss. We’ve defined ours. The thing is that on the “right” since I guess I’m a member of the right, us “pro-abortion” “pro-gay marriage” in fact “pro-polygamy” “pro-evolution” “anti-creation”(at least as it’s depicted) “atheist” “pro-immigration” “environmentaly conscious” rightists are clearly empty headed douchebags who follow only Darth Rove’s dictum.
America can fix it’s own problems within ourselves, if we let the people do so. Harry wants the world to fix our problems, and then blame the world for our failures. I disagree. I’ve lived in this nation, I served this nation, and I love this nation. I’ve resided briefly in others, and in those 8 nations as briefly as I knew them I can say this, “THIS, America, is the greatest nation I have ever seen” and all 8 of those nations were western.
Okay the rails are breaking and this is mesa’s place. I’m done.
