Affleck Comments on Politics

Posted by Bobby on May 31, 2007

The following is a transcript of Ben Affleck’s response to a question Bill Maher asked him on his show. The question was “What did you think of the Democrats now caving in on this Iraq spending Bill, Mr. Affleck?”

His response (edited of course) :

These (bleep) people, you know what it is, Democrats, this is the (bleep) problem with them, because you know how much money I (bleep) give away? The Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards, of looking soft on military, looking like (bleep) basically. We’re afraid that somebody’s going to call us a (bleep), that somebody is going to criticize us, and these people got elected basically on opposing the war, they got sent to Washington to oppose the war, they went there to make a vote on opposing the war. You’re either going to vote for or against this measure that says you have to, if you want this money, you have to give us timelines to get out of Iraq. Are you going to be for this or against it? They were afraid that if they basically sent it back to the president and said, “No, we need the timelines,” and they left for Memorial Day vacation, that when they left, they were afraid of being criticized. So rather, out of a fear of being criticized, they sacrificed their core political beliefs, and they wonder why people call them (bleep) weak.

Wow! Quite the articulate little scamp ain’t he? This is why actors should stay OUT of politics. Unless it is written on a script or on a radical Left-wing website, even they can’t make sense of their own convictions.

Fred Thompson "Testing the Waters"

Posted by Bobby on May 30, 2007

Looks like Fred Thompson is going to throw his hat into the ring.

FRED THOMPSON IS RUNNING for the Republican presidential nomination. In a conference call Monday, Thompson addressed a group of more than 100 supporters and fundraisers whom the campaign has dubbed First Day Founders. He told them that he would be setting up an organization that will allow him to begin raising money and recruiting staff.

Good luck my friend.

Hillary Finally Comes Out!

Posted by Bobby on May 30, 2007

No no, she’s not coming out of the closet. She has finally come out and described her vision of our country.

Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it’s time to replace an “on your own” society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity.

The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an ownership society really is an “on your own” society that has widened the gap between rich and poor.

“I prefer a ‘we’re all in it together’ society,” she said. “I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none.”

That means pairing growth with fairness, she said, to ensure that the middle-class succeeds in the global economy, not just corporate CEOs.

“There is no greater force for economic growth than free markets. But markets work best with rules that promote our values, protect our workers and give all people a chance to succeed,” she said. “Fairness doesn’t just happen. It requires the right government policies.”

Hmm… This sounds familiar. I think its called… SOCIALISM. News flash Hillary, its been done. It’s been tried, and it doesn’t work. France got tired of it and elected a conservative as president. Why is it that libs hold countries like France, UK, and Spain in such high regard for their government structure, but fail to look at whether or not it actually works?

Cindy Sheehan Learns About the Left the Hard Way

Posted by Bobby on May 30, 2007

Cindy Sheehan–in case you don’t know–has been leader of many anti-war rallies and poster girl for the liberal Left due to the fact that she tragically lost her son in the Iraq war. Instead of honoring her son’s service, she belittled his valor by leading protests that will bring the troops home from an unfinished job. Is there anything more demasculating than your mommy saying, “You can’t do that job. Just quit?” But, I digress. Here is an excerpt from her blog:

The first conclusion is that I was the darling of the so-called left as long as I limited my protests to George Bush and the Republican Party. Of course, I was slandered and libeled by the right as a “tool” of the Democratic Party. This label was to marginalize me and my message. How could a woman have an original thought, or be working outside of our “two-party” system?

However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the “left” started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used. I guess no one paid attention to me when I said that the issue of peace and people dying for no reason is not a matter of “right or left”, but “right and wrong.”

I am deemed a radical because I believe that partisan politics should be left to the wayside when hundreds of thousands of people are dying for a war based on lies that is supported by Democrats and Republican alike. It amazes me that people who are sharp on the issues and can zero in like a laser beam on lies, misrepresentations, and political expediency when it comes to one party refuse to recognize it in their own party. Blind party loyalty is dangerous whatever side it occurs on. People of the world look on us Americans as jokes because we allow our political leaders so much murderous latitude and if we don’t find alternatives to this corrupt “two” party system our Representative Republic will die and be replaced with what we are rapidly descending into with nary a check or balance: a fascist corporate wasteland. I am demonized because I don’t see party affiliation or nationality when I look at a person, I see that person’s heart. If someone looks, dresses, acts, talks and votes like a Republican, then why do they deserve support just because he/she calls him/herself a Democrat?

I have also reached the conclusion that if I am doing what I am doing because I am an “attention whore” then I really need to be committed. I have invested everything I have into trying to bring peace with justice to a country that wants neither. If an individual wants both, then normally he/she is not willing to do more than walk in a protest march or sit behind his/her computer criticizing others. I have spent every available cent I got from the money a “grateful” country gave me when they killed my son and every penny that I have received in speaking or book fees since then. I have sacrificed a 29 year marriage and have traveled for extended periods of time away from Casey’s brother and sisters and my health has suffered and my hospital bills from last summer (when I almost died) are in collection because I have used all my energy trying to stop this country from slaughtering innocent human beings. I have been called every despicable name that small minds can think of and have had my life threatened many times.

While I don’t believe in her politics, I feel her pain. She lost her son in Iraq, and it has to be the worst pain possible to bare; burying your child before they bury you. Instead of honoring his memory, she belittled his obvious love of his country by siding with the people on the far Left–people who would never dream of laying down their lives for this great nation. I pray that Ms. Sheehan will dedicate the rest of her life to the family she still has, and one day, realize that some sacrifices are required to life in a country as great as America.

George Soros’ Employee Detained in Iran

Posted by Bobby on May 24, 2007

In case you don’t know, George Soros is the billionaire at the middle of the radical Left movement in this country. Own websites such as mediamatters.com and moveon.org, George Soros uses his power, money, and influence to pull the hypothetical strings of the puppets on the liberal Left. He has set up an organization call George Soros’ Open Society Institute which spreads his message of one-world government.

I just saw this on FoxNews.com:

Iran has detained an Iranian-American consultant working for George Soros’ Open Society Institute, the latest U.S. citizen connected to a non-governmental organization to be seized in the country, the institute said Wednesday.

This play came so far out of “Left” field, I’m surprised Soros didn’t see it coming. George Soros’ websites have made it a mission to discredit an republican they can–especially Bush–and portray the war in Iraq as a radical Right-wing conspiracy.

We all know what the Left has been saying. These people are just misunderstood and we should get out of their country to allow them to govern themselves. I wonder if this seizure is just a misunderstanding…

Rush Lays It Out

Posted by Bobby on May 23, 2007

I make no attempt to hide that I am a Rush Limbaugh fan (thanks dad). I was listening to his show today and he read the following. I almost fell out of my chair after hearing these numbers. Lucky for me, I am a 24/7 subscriber and I can post this transcript here for you:

This is from the website ImmigrationCounters.com, and just listen to these numbers. The number of illegal aliens in the country according to this group is 20,807,645. The amount of money wired to Mexico since January of 2006 is $22,213,000,000. The cost of Social Security services for illegal aliens since 1996 — are you listening? — $397,450,739,563 dollars. That’s how much we have spent on Social Security services for illegal aliens since 1996, and that spending has been mandated by the courts, and it’s only going to go up.

I can tell you personally, the human can not grasp the concept of a billion. I know you might think you can, but you can’t; don’t care who you are. But not to worry, Rush comes through for us:

The next time you hear somebody use the word billion in a casual manner, keep these things in mind. A billion seconds ago it was 1959. A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive. A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age. A billion days ago, no one walked on the earth on two feet. A billion dollars ago was eight hours and 20 minutes at the rate our government spends money.

Nothing really to say, just wrap your head around those numbers and realize two things. You are getting screwed, and your government is doing the screwing.

Iran Plans Attack

Posted by Bobby on May 23, 2007

You’d have to be an idiot, or just not paying attention, to not know that Iran was going to cause us trouble sooner or later. Well looks like they are going to be a problem sooner than we think.

Iran is secretly forging ties with al-Qaida elements and Sunni Arab militias in Iraq in preparation for a summer showdown with coalition forces intended to tip a wavering US Congress into voting for full military withdrawal, US officials say.

You know, these barbarians might be just that, but they know our politicians and our governmental process better than most Americans. And with the jello-spine democrats that we have as majority right now, militant Islam might get its way.

The Savior of the World!

Posted by Bobby on May 22, 2007


Look at this picture. This a picture of Al Gore’s office at his mansion. He has 3 computer screens (why?), plasma screen on the wall, and all that paper work. Think of how many trees had to be sacrificed for that stack? This is the prophet of global warming and the savior of the earth?

Immigration Bill Passes in the Senate

Posted by Bobby on May 21, 2007

Edit: Apologizes, I kinda jumped the gun there. The vote today was to approve the start of the debate on the bill, so it hasn’t actually left the senate yet. Carry on.

Welp, it happened, the senators in Washington no longer listen to their voters.

The Senate approved a wide-ranging overhaul of immigration laws Thursday, voting 62-36 to bolster security at the Mexican border and to grant many illegal immigrants a path toward citizenship.

American democracy is being flushed down the toilet. This bill was passed without proper appropriations, without budget analysis, and without even listening to the American people.

The only good thing to come out was that at least a majority of GOP members voted against the bill. Of the GOP representatives “23 backing it and 32 opposing. Among Democrats voting, 38 supported the bill and four did not. The chamber’s independent Senator voted in favor.” Not sure where its going to go from here. Pelosi has said she won’t back it unless they have 70 republican votes.

This is insane. I don’t care if it’s a by-partisan compromise or not, its a bad deal. And the Democrats are trying hard to push this bill while Bush is in office, because it doesn’t matter who wrote the bill. When it comes down to who to blame when this deal goes soar (and it will), Bush will be blamed for it. And if he signs this bill, this is what he will be known for. Forget his battle against militant Islam, he gave 15 million criminals amnesty and bankrupted our country.
