"No one is saying Obama helped Ayers bomb the Pentagon."
Of course not Rick. But if some people, you know, get that impression, that's cool.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 26.08.2008 @ 15:37
"I would bet the farm that the American people would choose the liberty of the individual over the crushing statism offered by the other side."
Funny though that whenever I hear anyone scream liberty at the top of their lungs, your party shames and humiliates them. They are mocked and called names. They are called pussies, and their patriotism questioned. This happens no matter the party of the screamer. In fact, it's probably worse for those coming from your side.
It baffles me that the irony of so much of this piece seems lost on you. Look within.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 25.08.2008 @ 09:56
It's amazing how William Ayers has become equivalent to Al-Qaeda. Well framed, let's hope it sticks. Soon it will almost seem like John McCain is fighting a good and noble fight against know Al-Qaeda terrorist sympathizer Barak Obama. It's hard to believe that this known terrorist is allowed to live among us and indoctrinate our youth as a college professor. I'd like to know why Ayers isn't locked away safely in Gitmo enjoying "stress" positions and "simulated drowning."Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 22.08.2008 @ 15:59
Excellent post. You forgot to mention that McCain is a war hero. Be sure to put that in tomorrows piece about how Obama sucks and McCain is awesome.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 22.08.2008 @ 13:19
I guess you could look at it in the framing that McCain and Bush are no-shit-taking tough talking American badasses who understand what America needs to do in order to remain on top. Because, hey, everyone knows that Democrats are pussies who want to lose in Iraq and everywhere else they can lose. Hell, you remember Carter? Biggest pussy ever. No foresight on energy policy whatsoever. Pathetic.
OR, you could follow the money. It's no wonder McCain is beating his chest and talking the talk. Hell, you can pay these losers to say anything you want, and shortly after the pundits amplify and spread the toughness around. Trickle down toughness.
What's really amazing (still following the money here) is how Obama is getting so much more of the corporate cash these days. The big money donors are puking cash onto the Obama campaign like drunken barflies. The same corporations that I used to think were in love with the Right.
Nothing surprises me anymore.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 16.08.2008 @ 21:38
Wow. Your framing of this is epic.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 15.08.2008 @ 14:43
"But once—just once—I would like to hear the horror stories of the men and women of Pearl Harbor as counterpoint to the suffering of the Japanese and a reminder of who started the war and how they did it."
What are you talking about? These stories are everywhere. There are books and movies about it. Websites devoted to it. Television documentaries on the History channel. Hell, the abuse perpetuated upon China by the Japanese is legendary. Your piece reads like everyone simply ignores all of this so they can bash the United States. Some maybe, but come on. There are comparatively few people who vilify the US for doing what it did to end the war. I know I don't.
My point wasn't that those stories aren't told - they are. My point is that the survivors of Hiroshima's stories are meaningless without the counterpoint of Pearl Harbor, POW camps, and Nanking et al.
And you are wrong about the number of people who criticize our use of the bomb - not to mention the undercurrent of anti-Americanism at these rememberance ceremonies every year.

"Besides, my main gripe was with idiots like you who blame the whole thing on Bush – which is a big reason why Obama is only 3 points ahead instead of 20."
Nonsense. Obama is only 3 points ahead because voters have one or two old hot button issues that they even come close to caring about. Abortion, Gay Marriage, etc... Everything else exists outside their sphere of giving a shit. So, which guy eats babies and fornicates with the gays? Well, I certainly won't be voting for him... and so on.
It still baffles me that you call yourself a republican Rick.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 11.08.2008 @ 14:09
I found your analysis interesting and informative. That is, until the divergence into left bashing.
So, by the end, all I got was, because you've painted democrats as pussies, and Obama might be the next president, "All we can do is pick up the pieces after this is over."
Your piece read like this: interesting... interesting... nice map... informative... I agree... that's true.... OBAMA AND TEH DEMOCRAPS ARE PUSSIES AND THEY'VE RUIENED THE UNIVERSE BY HOPING THAT AMERICA LOSES AN OBAMA REALLY SUX AND DEMOCRATS ARE NOT AS SMART AS ME!!!1!11
well done.Comment Posted By Chuck Tucson On 11.08.2008 @ 08:57
