Random Rantings Collected from the Last Couple Days

How many times do we have to go over this??? No, I am NOT a neocon. YES, I am a free thinker. It seems as if to me that it is just a matter of time before we get someone in office that you like that we will hear plenty of political rhetoric spewing onto the pages of your blog, defending what you think is "right." Pick your candidate, ride your pony to the end. You know this crap is right around the corner. In the mean time, Iraq will be cleaned up, there will be peace for a short amount of time, the government will grow bigger, and we will continue to spin into a strange world where will we eventually lose our rights.

The question is not of what I say now, not of what I defend, not of what I believe, not of what you will call me, but of what will come down the pipe. Who or what is next? What will you be? What will you defend? Whom will you defend? When will we get our country back? HMMMM?

I see a lot of bullshit happening al around me. It cost the state of Wisconsin $46 million to insure 22,199 people. This is in supplement to the health care already being provided by their employers. Sad isn't it. I hate it. Why do we live in this welfare state? What are we going to do about the astronomical rise of health care prices? I suppose that is all the fault of current legislation right now too. It sucks for me and anyone. We who work to provide for ourselves have to pay health insurance twice. For myself, and some schlub who doesn't wanna work and would rather suckle the tit of the gov't.

What about the astronomical cost of oil? Is the government going to supplement poor people who want to drive too? Are my tax dollars going to fill their tanks? HMMM? Let's just bitch about it and not find a solution. Let's let the environmentalists lobby to prevent an oil company or two from building a couple new refineries. Save the whales they say. Well, I'm not buying it. Prices here are too high, but instead of trying to find a solution, they blame it on big oil and all the republican politicians who are supposedly in the pocket of the oil companies. BUILD A FU&%ING REFINERY! There is your solution. Tap the oil now as to prevent the increase in the future. There are your solutions.

What about manufacturing? HMM? Well, what of it? It's gone. Gone. Why? Slave labors government and communist socialist states sucking up all the contracts. There you have it. So, what will you do? HMM? What are you going to do about it? You could support legislation that enacts FAIR trade. Trade sanctions taking into account the cost of manufacturing here vs. RedChina/Brazil/RedKorea/Mexico. We are losing out here. So what? I saved $0.59 on a pair of jeans to cut out some guys job in the states. What do you think I would do. Well, am I an economist? Am I a globalist? No, I am a gun totin' red blooded patriotic AMERICAN! Fuck them all. I don't give two shits about someone in another country. I don't care what they want, what they think, what they do. It doesn't affect me, it only affects those around me. They are overseas, not around me. I would rather put my neighbor to work than some two bit twit overseas. FAIR Trade legislation would make this possible. If it costs me this much for an American product, and this much for a Chinese product, which do I buy. Where is the quality? Answer that for yourself. I can't do it for you.

Here it comes! It's inevitable. I know what you are thinking. I know what you are dying to say. Well, too bad. The products I sell that are imported have a tariff already on them, and they come from democratic, well developed countries. They are competitive in price, and aren't driving the market into a frenzy. The Domestics are shooting themselves in the foot right now, so don't try to go there.

Just random ramblings, all floating around, out on black and white now. There. Chew on that you nay sayers.

George Bush certainly is not going to save you or this country and he certainly is not going to make oil any cheaper.

" It cost the state of Wisconsin $46 million to insure 22,199 people. This is in supplement to the health care already being provided by their employers. Sad isn't it. I hate it. Why do we live in this welfare state? "

It cost us $300 BILLION to invade Iraq, 2000 dead soldiers, and Halliburton "lost" $11 BILLION dollars.

I am far more concerned about the corporate welfare in our system than the $46 million to insure people.

The Republican from Alaska wants $250 Million to build a bridge that will be used by 40 people. GO figure...You probably don't have a problem with that, do you...

DCS says:

" In the mean time, Iraq will be cleaned up, there will be peace for a short amount of time,"

There will be no peace in Iraq until we leave.

I am more concerned about cleaning up Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iran, and Syria, than Iraq.

Why do you even care about Iraq? They are not a national security threat. North Korea is.

"the government will grow bigger,"

We deffinately now know that Republicanism means huge, bloated, corporate welfare laden government...You got that right!

DCS says:


"and we will continue to spin into a strange world where will we eventually lose our rights."

Yeah, especially if the Republicans maintain power. Heck, if there is a bird flu outbreak Bush will declare martial law in a blink of an eye.

DCS says:

"Who or what is next? What will you be? What will you defend? Whom will you defend? When will we get our country back? HMMMM?"

As soon as we vote the corrupt politicians out of office, get rid of the corporate lobbyists, and enforce campaign finance laws.

I will deffinately NOT be defending Kerry, Clinton, Biden, Frist, Feinstein, Lieberman, Libby, Cheney, Bush, or Delay.

DCS says:

"some schlub who doesn't wanna work and would rather suckle the tit of the gov't."

You mean like Halliburton?

DCS says:

"What about the astronomical cost of oil?"

Yes, DCS what about it? We sure are not getting any cheap oil out of Iraq.

Why is the oil market allowed to be artificially inflated by speculation? The Oil Market is no free market.

Why are we not putting all of our resources into finding alternatives to the combustion engine?

DCS, your anger is misplaced as you once again FAILED to offer up any new ideas.

Please, check out my other blogs for ideas.

Seems as though Poli has interesting commentary--you're closer together than you may think.

Even Bill Buckley is aghast at GWB's "democracy crusade" in the Middle East.

What's 'corporate welfare?' Rent-seeking? As long as Gummints have all the money, and can spend it at will, there will ALWAYS be 'corporate welfare.' Somebody has to build the roads, HUMVEES, and F-18's.

Yes, the Alaskan senator is a Pig.

Hint: there will NEVER be "peace" in the Middle East, whether the US is there or not there. Of course, it depends on how you define the term. Hussein only led his country into two wars (three if you count the current one,) but killed how many million dissenters?

Define "peace"--does it include the internal killings?

We most certainly are NOT getting "cheap oil" out of Iraq. Evidently the war was NOT fought for "cheap oil."

DCS - Having a bad day? I'm right there with the majority of what you said. Some times ya just got to get it off your chest. Bully to you for having a place to spout! :O)

Poli - Get a clue.

I rarely do this, promote a post on my blog at other blogs.

But Forbes has launched a hate speech lying attack on the blogosphere...as the UN tries to grab control of root name servers of Internet.

Do you want Forbes to destroy our home? Do you want China, Iran and N. Korea to repress all blogs?

We neeed to make them feel our WRATH.

Fight back now.

See my post on "Forbes stupidly attacks blogosphere" at my Vaspers the Grate blog.

You see DCS war has always been a stupid man's answer. We were on the verge of achieving a peace time economy when the Bush thugs pushed us back into a war time economy. Guess what, without a war a wartime economy ain't worth squat. The point of any economy is distribution and redistribution. We put our faith in a small piece of paper printed with various denominations. The corporations have us beat because they collect these bits of paper and convert them to hard assets. We expend our bits of paper on assets that depreciate from the moment we buy them. We are in a losing game. It is easy to cry about welfare and those sucking on the tit of government but welfare is a non-militaristic means of redistribution and creating buying power in social latitudes where almost none exists. It all eventually ends up back with government but only after those welfare dollars have travelled through hands such as yours. Unfortunatley with coroporations they pay little or no taxes and often invest oustside of America and therefore contribute to the destruction of our economy. It is always nice to think that someday that you might sit at the head of corporate board and earn tons of money so you want to protect that ideal. The reality is that you have more chance of winning a lottery these days than becoming a multi-millonaire CEO. Most of those positions are reserved for corporate family members anyway. So we go on blindly defending and protecting a system that will soon be our downfall. It is easy to blame it on foreign governments but as it has been said many times, the enemy is within. Tell me the difference between building affordable housing versus building bombs? Each is an end product but an occupied home represents a continuing economy and a bomb has to be used eventually in order to continue the war time economy. And guess what folks, the real reason we really needed to invade Iraq.

You are all missing the blindingly obvious. DCS never got enough hugs when he was little and is letting his anger at his mother guide his politics. Wake-up DCS. Ann Coulter doesn't love you. She is using you to make a buck.

VVWKB ought to read the news. See MY blog entry:

http://dad29.blogspot.com/2005/10/actually-arabs-bailed-and-iraqis-died.html

for a VERY interesting little story about the war.


DAVE: DCS resisted hugs.

Okay dud29, I read the article. Why don't you try a little memory and remember that Bush himself pushed the button 4 days early on Saddam leaving our military in an unprepared position. If the US was really intent on settling this without war and we were true negotiators, a nice offer of 1 billion dollars and a luxury villa for Saddam would have been a whole lot cheaper than the mess we have now. The idea in readin the news is not believing everything the news has to say but take the information and apply life's experiences and make up your own mind. The key word in the news piece is nicely put 'indicated' which leaves for a broad range of interpretation. Why should we start believing the Arabs now anyway? It usually takes us months to verify the validity of any news story coming out of the Arab sector before it is deemed believable. So why jump on this one now?

Just an old trick DCS. Used to use it to break up VC chatter and get enough time to triangulate by FM homing device and take Charlie off push. Good call.

I understand. I gotta meet MK at the BB with the MOM. Then we'll cruise down the CAP, hook it onto OAK straight on thru to the PS where we can MOW on some ZA.

WORD!
