The fact is, Johnson and I are in lockstep agreement when it comes to many of our criticisms of the right. We both despise the cotton candy conservatism of Beck, Limbaugh, and Coulter et. al. that is occasionally tinged with sniffs of bigotry."

Jim Robinson is having a hard time getting his depleting herd of morons to give him money (Freepathon) .. this is another PR con-job by Rimjob.Comment Posted By Kevin On 19.07.2009 @ 11:58
Robert Spencer. Charles Johnson threw Robert frickin' Spencer under the bus. Without even going into a single other disgraceful act the man has committed, that single act should be enough for you to disassociate yourself from him.
I'm only an infrequent reader of this blog, so take my comment with a grain of salt. But imo, Johnson is not serious about fighting global jihad. He is merely serious about whining about it. If someone thinks of an actual solution, under the bus they go.Comment Posted By Kevin On 22.04.2009 @ 16:32
Rick, I too stumbled on your site because of your 24 blogging, and liked what I saw.
I do have one favor to ask though. Since you are giving it up, would you mind posting links to 2 or 3 of your favorite 24 blogs?
I will do so. And some of the speculation boards that give me a lot of inspiration if not accuracy.

Fair enough as it goes. But what the country needs now is real leadership. I will continue to look to Obama with real scepticism while "enduring" him is our duly elected President if he is elected. One doesn't have to be a quisling to have a point of view that he will follow his liberal instincts and possibly show a great deal of weakness as a leader on the world stage and in a crisis. Everyone refers to Ronald Reagan, in whose administration I worked, as the paradigm for how this whole thing can work. But, Reagan seized his opportunity because it resonated with all Americans. Tip O'Neil worked with him because he saw the political downside of not doing so. I can still recognize "my" president as duly elected and, as such, as "the office", but I can still remain skeptical that he will not achieve the things I think are good for the country. Jimmy Carter was the office of the President even as he weakened our nation. I think what you are really talking about here is some active form of "disobedience" as opposed to respecting the Constitution that has successfully guided us as a rule-book for a patriotic nation.Comment Posted By Kevin On 14.10.2008 @ 09:52
Well I'm not voting for him so I must be racist -- but which half of Obama am I racist against? His white half or his black half??Comment Posted By Kevin On 21.06.2008 @ 16:01
O'Bama is a complete phoney and a liar and will do anything to get elected - just like Hillary. Oh, and I'm a Democrate, BTW. For anyone who really believe's that Obama DIDN'T KNOW Wright was filled with hate and ignorance after sitting in his church for TWENTY YEARS, and being HIS FRIEND, and his PROTIGE, and USING WRIGHT TO GET ELECTED IN IL, they need to get mental help!
Obama's speach in the aftermath was eloquent and rang as true as any I've ever heard. HOWEVER, it is tooo little tooo late. I mean, Spitzer said all the right things after he was exposed. Both men know right from wrong or at least can recite it. Both can do it in an intelligent and convincing manner. YET both are rotten. Of course Obama will now say, let's look past division. Where were those words for Wright? Why not tell Wright to put a sock in it these last 20 years? Why not say, "damn, I'm not going to be associated with this biggot, this nut." I mean, surely he could have gone to a diiferent church. AHHHH, but not one so revered by the local African American community and one with 8,000 members (which BTW Oprah attends - funny how that's getting no play).
No, Obama sat there and made THIS his church, and made THIS SCUM his Pastor, and his MENTOR!!! This is judgment?? And now, we are supposed to believe Obama when he PRETENDS this is all news to him and he disagrees with it? HOW STUPID ARE THOSE THAT BELIEVE HIM?? So, yes, the words were true and wonderful, but what else could Obama have said or done at that point? I prefer to use MY COMMON SENSE and believe that the Obama of the last TWENTY YEARS is the REAL Obama - as sad as that is (our country needed a guy like him - he knows it and has played the part perfectly, except for that hiding the last 20 years part).
Lastly, I've heard many argue that Rev. Wright IS a GOOD PERSON, and that the media has crucified him! That this church does countless things for the needy, etc. - I should hope so .. IT'S A CHURCH!!!!!!! Yet, even the most evil or whacked person can be or do or say the most noble things. However, if at the end of the day, that person makes it his mission to determine (BASED ON COLOR) that those of light hew are THIS AND THAT AND >>>> well then that man is an ignorant fool. I KNOW THAT - Obama either DIDN'T or DIDN'T CARE - we should not now hand over the White House to him.Comment Posted By Kevin On 27.03.2008 @ 00:16
On the contrary, bringing such nonsense to the attention of the American people whenever we can is a good thing, if for no other reason than to encourage them to not believe all the negatives(often untrue)about Iraq that they are bombarded with on a daily basis. Maybe if more outing of nonsense like this had been done in the beginning, there would be more support for the war today.
Instead, a lot nonsense goes unchallenged, and people form their opinion of the war based on said nonsense.Comment Posted By Kevin On 7.08.2007 @ 10:26
In the 1960's there was. Competition for space with our mortal enemy. Kennedy challenged us to do this peaceful mission to the moon, to vastly expand our space technology, which would assuredly be useful to the military and our defense.
I think the simple answer today is, there is no need today for a grand mission in space. Our existence isn't threatened. There is no promise of great things to come from sending a man to Mars or colonizing the moon. At least not that can't be developed at home using those same billions of dollars.Comment Posted By Kevin On 24.07.2007 @ 19:29
There has to be other options that staying the course or just pulling out and abandoning Iraq to certain civil war, slaughter, and an eventual Taliban-like regime taking over.
Maybe I'm naive, but let's throw out some options. Splitting the country into 3, installling our own puppet gov't and Constitution, giving the current gov't a deadline that if they don't accomplish certain goals by certain dates, we're leaving, etc.Comment Posted By Kevin On 27.06.2007 @ 11:41
