But what do I really think?

You know what I realized? I have a few opinions. They are as follows:

Illegal aliens: Kick them out. Give them nothing so they kick themselves out.

The Kicker: It's ours. Hands off.

Gay marriage: It's all about equality... gays can marry someone of the opposite sex just like the rest of us.

Public art: I don't buy that garbage for my house, I don't want you using my money to buy it for yours.

The internet: What did we do before it? Thank you Al Gore.

The War on Terror: Bury terrorists with pig guts. Post pictures of that. We should be waging a huge propaganda war instead of having one waged against us by the media.

Les Schwab: Greatest tire company ever. Wouldn't buy anywhere else. Don't care if they have a woman manager or not.

Women having "equality": Hah, I'll concede that women should have set-asides at Les Schwab (or anywhere) when Cosmo sets aside a certain number of pages to talk about fishing/power tools/large trucks.

Property rights: That's your house, you want to paint it polka dot and put a large neon sign on top? That's your bussiness. What I want to do with my house is my bussiness.

Abortion: It's murder.

Democrats: They're not bad people, just not very bright.

Washington DC politicians: They live on Planet X. They don't care about us even a little.

Marijuana: If you think it's medicine then you are a moron. You don't smoke medicine.

Tom Clancy: Great author.

Karl Rove: A moron.

Global Warming: When I write a blog post I put a link, when I write a paper I footnote. This is because I will be called a liar if I don't. (with the proof available I just get called a facist/bigot/etc) Don't tell me about global warming unless you are prepared to back it up with facts. "Everyone knows" isn't good enough.

Feminists: Who let them out of the kitchen?

Crime and punishment: We will have less of the former when the latter is more severe and unpleasant.

My most recent fishing trip: How did my vegetarian brother manage to catch a fish and I didn't?

Celebreties: I don't care who you married, whose baby you have, what you are wearing. Shut up.

Animal rights: They have the right to be eaten.

David Wu: Is "attempted rapist" something that Oregon voters look for in a representative?

Mac Johnson: Write a book man. I'll buy it.

The guy who just called me telling me that we won a $500 shopping spree if I will only let them come into my house and have me fill out a survey: May a thousand lice lay eggs on your pillow.

Email spam: May a thousand lice lay eggs in your nose and ears.

Reality TV: If I want reality I'll go outside.

This blog post: It's getting long...

I would advise you not to fixate on the rhetorical nitpickery.

"Public art: I don't buy that garbage for my house, I don't want you using my money to buy it for yours."

I don't buy tanks for my house. I don't buy body armor, either, but I guess the government and I are on equal footing there.

"The War on Terror: Bury terrorists with pig guts. Post pictures of that. We should be waging a huge propaganda war instead of having one waged against us by the media."

I have a feeling that might be the best thing we could possibly do for their recruitment quotas, as well.

"Property rights: That's your house, you want to paint it polka dot and put a large neon sign on top? That's your bussiness. What I want to do with my house is my bussiness."

Ever heard of "property value?"

"Democrats: They're not bad people, just not very bright."

Ooh, I like this bit. It's a step up from the "pro-abortion" theme, at least.

"Washington DC politicians: They live on Planet X. They don't care about us even a little."

They care about the ones who're going to relect them, I can assure you.

"Marijuana: If you think it's medicine then you are a moron. You don't smoke medicine."

Why not?

"Karl Rove: A moron."

Excellent.

"Don't tell me about global warming unless you are prepared to back it up with facts. 'Everyone knows' isn't good enough."

Try Al Gore's movie, perhaps.

"Crime and punishment: We will have less of the former when the latter is more severe and unpleasant."

Or, put another way, cruel and unusual?

"My most recent fishing trip: How did my vegetarian brother manage to catch a fish and I didn't?"

The fish knew he wasn't gonna eat it.

"Celebreties: I don't care who you married, whose baby you have, what you are wearing. Shut up."

On this one you can legitimately blame the media.

"Animal rights: They have the right to be eaten."

We're a couple of centuries past the need for Darwinist survival philosophy, aren't we?

Crackpot said...

Daniel;

Nice rant, but a few lines about your unalienable right to bear firearms would have fit nicely in there. Then again, I'm a simple man. Just give me freedom and small, unintrusive government. Morality will sort itself out, much like the laws of natural selection.

Isn't he the guy who invented the internets? Sure, I'll trust him for unbiased information.

Wow. That's the biggest load of crap I've heard since Bush's last speech.

Gunslinger said...

Interestingly enough... Al Gore and his movie about the earth being doomed. He had a quote in the most recent men's health magazine.
"In the long run, the earth will be just fine. It is the people that live here we need to worry about."

Haven't been on in a while Dan, nice to see you still have your cowardly anonymous haters.

You may be interested in a review by someone who has similar distrust of the man.

The Democrats I know are not dumber than I am, they are just lacking the right sort of life experiences. Often this is because they are young persons. Many have noted that people tend to get more conservative with age -- it's due to learning from experience.

BEAR said...

If the lefties actually believed their own propaganda, they'd starve to death. They are lousy hunters, so they can't eat meat, and they compensate by eating (according to them) "illegally" introduced non-native species. If they took the time to browse and migrate according to nature's "sustainable" pattern, they wouldn't have the time or energy to pollute the www, the airwaves, or the media with their socialist foolishness.

BTW, even the Netherlands has discovered its socialist gag-limit. The perverts they have so warmly welcomed have applied to start-up a Pedophile Party, which calls for an end to age, gender and behavioral limits. I'm not sure what their foreign policy agenda is...lol. I'm guessing the terrorists will love them even more, now.

Yes, that's an interesting review. One minor quibble - it doesn't appear that Greenland's going to melt any time soon, as the ice cap there is actually increasing in size at the present time.

All the same, I find it difficult to get all worked up over global warming - I've lived through the same sort of hysteria in the past. Except that 30 and 40 years ago, the boogyman was: global cooling. We were all gonna die and it was due to human activity. Turns out that something happened somewhere along the trip to the icebox.

Now, concerning greenhouse gases, certainly CO2 can be problematic - however, it's essential for plant life. Generally ignored in discussions of global warming gas emissions is methane - which is much more effective than CO2 in terms of contribution to a greenhouse effect.

And the number one producer - by far - of methane emissions on the planet is (envelope, please):

Termites.

My sister was raped and concequently ended up pregnant, It's inconceivable to me how a 17 year old could carry and raise a child that came as a result of a traumatic experience such as that. Abortion as a contraceptive = murderous irresponsability but in some cases abortion is a viable solution to an already tense and overloaded mind.

I'm from Chile, the economic progress the country has made thanks to the left is staggering. While i'm conservative in many respects the narrow minded tunnel vision type approach of the extreme right troubles me greatly and it would be a slap in the face to the 3000+ that died in the "chilean september 11" (which i'm sure 99% of americans have no clue about, but that's another issue) if I'd ever vote for a right wing candidate.

Other than that, I concur on the rest of your spiel

Anon 6:13: If anything is full of s--t it is you.

The Kicker: It belongs back in the hands of the people, not Teddy the K, who, in my opinion, just gave the election to Ron Saxton on a platter with his announcement that he wants to keep the Kicker.


Crime and Punishment: In the 1870's in Kansas there was a judge, Isaac Parker (aka The Hanging Judge because after he sentenced someone to hang, that person was hanging within the hour), wrote that it was not the sentence of death that is a deterrent, but the surety of that sentence. That is still true today. It really is to bad that we have so many liberal judges, such as the one in Lincoln, Nebraska two weeks ago who gave that rapist Probation because he is "too short" to handle life in a prison. We really need someone like Isaac Parker back in all our courtrooms. Maybe then we will have some semblance of justice.

As far as the Dumocrats are concerned, they are like house-guests that overstay their welcome, they are becoming annoying and starting to smell bad. John Murtha is a good example of that.

BEAR said...

hey, evasive, remember the (now defunct) ussr? they were destroyed by their own socialist economy.....And came begging to America. Cuba is not doing so well, except for castro, who is worth about $900 million. Albania is the poorest nation in Europe. China has adopted capitalist fundamentals to grow its own economy. North Korea is systematically starving its own people. Go kiss che's dead ass, then kiss mine. Chile's "right-wing" was/is as totalitarian as the left. If it weren't for free trade (a capitalist concept to you lefties) south america wouldn't be doing as well. BTW, if lefty politics are so cool and productive, why are all of your neighbors and friends in a belly-to-the-ground sprint to get HERE!!......sheesh. You are too cowardly to fix your own problems....you want to come begging from us, and then have the almighty gall to tell us OUR system is screwed up? I don't believe your sister was impregnated by rape. Illegals and their pals will say anything to rationalize their continued parasitism and lack of manhood. You are without honor.

I would love for someone to explain how the following is useful political discourse.

"Not in the least bit funny. And...full of shit to boot!"

"gutless."

I second Kaelri's question...

Bear, name a Latin American country with a left-leaning president that sends immigrants to the U.S. in large numbers. I can't think of one. Mexico, by far the largest sending country, is lead by a conservative party. Bolivia, Chile, and Venezuela, all with populist leadership, send relatively few.

Khaldun said...

Maybe we should first ask bear what country he immigrated from.

Shaky Louie said...

kaleri,
You were looking for "useful political discourse." on a "rant" thread?

Sometimes Psuedo-Intellectuals can be such a bring down.

But if it makes you feel better, you may attack me for ____________
(fill in as you wish).

Kaelri said...

"You were looking for "useful political discourse." on a "rant" thread?"

In my experience, people who are saying stupid things don't usually stop until someone lets them know that the things they're saying are stupid.

I'm not saying I didn't expect stupidity - Daniel's style and substance invite it. I just feel responsible to let his more irate respondents know that the world, as a result of their contributions, is not at all a better place.
