Christmas is getting closer, I’m not all that excited about a lot of things today but I have a lot of things I’m thinking about:

Watch Hugo Chavez slowing take absolute power is like watching a horror movie for the 27th time. Every single time you shout don’t open that door” but you know it’s going to be opened. No comment from the Sean Penn’s of the world.

The fact is that the first rule of being a good leftist is the enemy of the US is my friend.

This is one of the reason why Obama drives some on the left nuts, by deciding not to lose the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan he has betrayed them.

And Julian Assagee is driving ultra feminists nuts too, there is a conflict between their belief that America is an evil patriarchy and the idea that almost all sex is rape. It’s for this reason that the left confronted by this conundrum choose to attack…Robert Stacy McCain .

Or Sarah Palin.

The more I read about Arlen Specter the more I’m proud of the tea party that helped get people like him out of government.

Do you remember the conventional wisdom that Pat Toomey couldn’t win a general election? I do. Conventional wisdom is correct until it isn’t.

Then again I thought that three Massachusetts seats would flip, turns out the answer is 1, that is we have lost a democratic seat that will likely end up Red elsewhere.

If I live to be 77 I expect to see Massachusetts with a six seat delegation or less unless we change. I can’t help but think this is good for America as a whole.

I plan a longer post on the subject but someone needs to explain to the left that you can’t vote the dead unless they’ve been born first.

Bill Whittle is a national treasure, and I need to get him on my show.

Yesterday on O’Reilly there were comments on what people gave to charity. I don’t like this. I itemize my taxes but claim no charity, not because I don’t give but because I don’t believe it taking a tax deduction for it. I’ll wager there are a lot of folks like me.

They also played the flash mob Hallelujah choir, I absolutely love that and the silent monk one too. Both are creative.

How much great classical music has it’s roots is Christianity? Must be a conundrum for liberal elites.

I always smile when I get an e-mail from Andrea Shea King, she once did a favor for me that might seem small but meant a lot to me at the time. I’m very sentimental like that.

Can we finally admit that Global Warming/Climate change is a religion?

Considering the geological age of the Universe in general and the earth in particular how arrogant is it that our current “climate” IS the climate that we must maintain?

And another thing, if man is just another animal why is don’t we simply accept that it is our “nature” to “change climate” just like it is like a lion’s nature to eat antelope?

The anniversary of one of stupidest things that elites in this country every came up with Secession was this week. I see a direct line from this to liberals today. I also think that if it hadn’t been for secession and the civil war slavery in America would have continued well into the 20th century in the US until perhaps World War 2.

That deserves a longer essay that I will write later.

Am I the only guy who was not surprised when the North Koreans did nothing after days of bluster over South Korean war games etc?

How exactly does a story end up on memeorandum? It can’t be just hits or Instapundit would be there every day?

I’ve given Hallie Miller a lot of my time lately, she is now in the top 10 (8th in the Explore Modeling contest) in the Savvy Magazine modeling contest. I’ve been fascinated on how close the vote is. There are 351 votes separating the current 12th place lady and the 6th place spot. With under 10 days to go in my opinion no spot outside the top 3 or 4 is safe and I expect a lot of movement in the last few days of the contest to get those 10 winning spots.

Hallie was in the 100’s when she first left a comment on the blog. The irony is that I would have likely help any person who had asked first. Half the battle is showing up.

Barney Frank went on about what did the children of the rich do to deserve their parents money? Tell me Barney what did YOU do to deserve it?

Anyone who thinks that the Military won’t handle the repeal of DADT professionally doesn’t know the military.

I think the MSM and the left aren’t strong enough to force us to lose Afghanistan.

BTW anyone who thinks that Sarah Palin can’t win in 2012 is deluding themselves.

Also anyone who thinks Barack Obama can’t win in 2012 is also deluding themselves.

And if John Stewart actually had political clout outside the elites republicans wouldn’t have won 63 seats.

That will do for now. Read you all later. and go vote for Hallie

Assorted thoughts for a Sunday Morning

Posted: August 22, 2010 by datechguy in Uncategorized

My mind is wandering a a dozen different directions this morning so lets talk a bit about everything:

Turned on the TV when I got downstairs this morning and noticed Fox News Watch, the talked briefly about Iraq. The point was being made that because we had 50,000 troops there and contractors the war wasn’t really over. I guess we are still fighting World War II since we have never pulled our troops out of Germany.

A&E is running Three Stooges shorts till 10 a.m. this morning, WSBK has run them regularly as one of two stations, (the other in Chicago) that has the rights to them outside of the licenses granted by the stooges heirs. Considering the NEWEST of these shorts are from 1958 (the oldest from 1933) it can be considered the greatest continual run for a comedy team in history. I will be dead and buried for decades and generations unborn will be watching the stooges and laughing at them.

A&E has actually started creating “Short Shorts” cutting down stooges films to just about 5 min as fillers. In theory using this method they could show the entire run in a one day marathon.

I took a peek at Pam Geller’s book The Post American Presidency a week ago. I plan on ordering it at sometime before the end of the month. Pam has been absolutely tireless in fighting radical Islam and has been utterly fearless. She puts comedy central to shame.

The RNC is low on dough. This doesn’t surprise me, their proclivity to support RINO’s and track record of same have scared off activists. See (The Not one Red Cent campaigns). Don’t forget that when confronted on the NRCC’s support of ACORN endorsed candidate Dede Scozzafava, the NRCC chairman lashed out at the conservatives who questioned him. Dede eventually endorsed democrat Bill (One Hour) Owens.

The question becomes will the donors give their dough to the individual candidates. That’s where $10 buck Friday’s come in.

You know there are two things that hit me about the “Is Obama a Muslim” business. First of all is there something wrong with being a Muslim? The way the media is treating that perception you would think that it was they who had an issue with it. Secondly it occurs to me that it might be serving a foreign policy motive to not be emphatic about his religion as apostasy from Islam is punishable by death.

And isn’t it strange that after the AP and the MSM are falling over themselves to say “this is not a Mosque” it is revealed today that it is currently functioning…as a Mosque.

And can we please stop worry about what our foes think of us for what we do. Our foes will think of us as they always do, as enemies. If they don’t have a reason to hate us, they will make them up.

I’ve been looking at the history book that my son has for summer reading for his AP US History class this fall, it is the 10th Edition of the particular text, I own the 6th. I’ve been noticing the differences between the pair. One telling difference my edition includes the “Equal Rights Amendment” as the 27th Amendment to the Constitution his has the actual 27th amendment that restricts congressional pay raises.

Is there any item “As seen on TV” that isn’t available at your local CVS or Marshalls within a year?

Have you ever noticed that Lawyers on TV must all be deaf, they are always saying to witnesses on the stand: “I didn’t hear you can you repeat that”?

Stacy McCain is exactly right on the impeachment bit.

The closest thing to Steve Den Beste’s essays that I enjoyed so much in the old days are Elizabeth Scalia posts at the Anchoress.

Is Burn Notice a fun TV show or what?

I was re-reading Rush Limbaugh an Army of one (my review here) and noticed that everything he predicted that the president would do, he did?

I’ve been spending an awful lot of time tweeting lately. I’m going to make it a point not to today.

I can’t think of Twitter without thinking of Sissy Willis she managed to be both Buzzworthy at Michelle Malkin and linked by Instapundit on the same post.

Does Geico do the best commercials or what? The only real lemon is the “Bird in the Hand” one.

All those warnings about “don’t get cocky” are right. Polls and money doesn’t vote, people do.

Simplicity Plus is the best brand of Cat Litter I’ve ever used.

Watching Harry Reid and John McCain playing with their positions to save their jobs is pretty pathetic. You would think both of these guys would have some pride or a life, particularly McCain.

And the country still owes him for the support of the surge big time.

Is there any Doctor Who fan created work better than Rich’s Comics Blog?

If I see one more ad for one more Vampire show I’ll drive a stake through my own heart.

And just how many blades can you fit in a razor until it’s enough?

…I haven’t touched the national news today.

Lucky for you the other blogs are on the ball:

Robert Stacy give the Port-Mortem on the Illinois results that were less than what might be desired:

Second-guessing campaign strategies is a fascinating sport. However, if there is any New Media takeaway from the Illinois gubernatorial primary, it is this: Campaigns would be wise to engage the blogosphere early in the election cycle, rather than to treat online outreach as an afterthought.

Mark Hemmingway touches on Excitable Andy’s latest foray into Bloggers Alzheimer’s on the subject of Sarah Palin:

At what point does Andrew Sullivan’s derangement over Sarah Palin and his bizarre conspiracy theories about how her son was really birthed by her daughter become an issue for an otherwise respectable publication such as The Atlantic? If his employers don’t take action over this blog post of his, then we’re totally through the looking glass:

RSM recommends Ace of Spades on the subject is a tad vulgar for my taste.

The lonely conservative notes that if there is one thing you can say about this administration is they are consistent.

President Obama can’t stop pointing his finger at George Bush for his troubles. It’s getting so old. Every president faces challenges, Bush did. But Bush didn’t have a filibuster proof majority to work with, the way Obama’s had for the past year.

I think the reason he might not go for a 2nd term is he will have nobody else to blame.

Dan Riehl notes that Scott Brown is a real equal opportunity employer.

“I just go — I don’t care who they are as long as they’re good people and they’ll be trustworthy and loyal and they’ll do their jobs, I don’t care. Kennedy had some of the best people in the country and I’m honored to have some of them

Well we know these guys are discreet.

The camp of the Saints crowns a new leader of the free world:

Israel has no choice: The United States and the other nations of The West will not act to protect the Free World against the threat of a nuclear Islam, so it must bear the burden. Benjamin Netanyahu IS the leader of the Free World.

I still think it might be a bluff.

Don Surber sees projection on the left:

As Obamania winds down and it inevitably was fated to do — taking with it the hopes for a Europeanized America complete with socialized medicine, leaders on the left will ratchet up their rhetoric.

It is a sign of a political moment dying.

Legal Insurrection approves:

Keep calling the majority of Americans crazy and dangerous and extremists and “teabaggers.” Every time you do it we gain votes.

They are not called the angry left for nothing.

The Libertarian Popinjay notes a pet that you don’t want to own.

Meanwhile Peg agrees declares Global Warming a religion:

Arguing with people who exhibit this sort of behavior is like arguing with those who have strong religious beliefs. Their beliefs are rooted in faith; not hard evidence.

In a free nation, they are surely entitled to believe what they wish. But, the rest of us should not be held hostage to their religious beliefs. Let’s not twist our economy and freedoms to align with faith. Let the rest of us to be free to act on what many of us believe: that the earth’s atmosphere and temperature is the result of many factors, and that it is unclear that man has more than a tiny impact on what happens to them

Where have I heard this before?

American Freedom likes Vernon Parker for Az 3rd and unlike Chris Matthews doesn’t forget his race

You don’t need to forget with Mayor Parker you never notice the color of his skin and he shouldn’t be stereotyped by it. What you do pay attention to his belief in the American people, Love of Family and Country. His belief in a smaller government, creating jobs, reviving the economy, not raising taxes, lowing the deficit and giving those less fortunate a hand up not a handout.

Will the media even notice?

Ruby Slippers is feeling VERY optimistic:

Momentum has a way of shaking stronger candidates out of the trees. The Senate may still be a long shot but it is looking less like a long shot than it did before Massachusetts. There is a lifetime politically between now and November, but as of now, the ball is clearly in our court

What’s that line from the Patriot? Aim Small Miss Small.

And finally American Glob is sick of all the bowing by the president:

Weasel Zippers caught this photo of Obama bowing to… The mayor of Tampa, Florida.

Does President Obama have a single advisor smart enough to tell him to stop bowing to people? Can you picture Reagan doing this? Washington? Lincoln? JFK? Carter???

I don’t know looking at the picture I think it was just an excuse to check out her legs.
