"Of the souls of men there is little hope, curs-ed greed and calloused hearts discriminate not against race or creed."
Where has there ever been a community of perfect souls? We won't find them among the white, red, olive, yellow, or black races. Considering that the religious pilgrims were forced by circumstances out of their control to take on trappers and other "outsiders" into their devout community, they did extremely well in maintaining law, order, and peace with the American natives. Except for a few incorrigible cases, this is the authentic record we have today. These humble ones did not hold back giving thanks to God, or showing gratitude to the natives for their survival. The separatists were not perfect, but they were the best kind of folk that friendly locals could work with, resulting in a peaceful coexistence.Comment Posted By Patrick On 27.11.2008 @ 22:45
I think this is a very poor blog.
For starters, the trick Frank Luntz pulled using pro-war Fox News voters was so transparent that anyone with half a brain could see through that. Fox News would obviously know that Ron Paul would win their text poll again so I saw that as a big setup. For you to quote that episode as proof that Ron Paul is a fringe candidate is foolish. I can almost guarantee that Ron Paul will finish in the top 3 in New Hampshire.
Being worried about Neocons has very little to do with being anti-Jewish. At least you gave one sentence out of 20 to that fact. The main concern is endless wars where a group of elites gets rich while the rest of us have our kids go to war for them. I have no problems with Jews but am very concerned about the Republicans in charge right now (and I voted for Bush twice). Ron Paul is the only candidate with integrity that will get us out of this mess.
Next, I don't think their is anything fringe about being concerned with the loss of our national sovereignty to a bunch of internationalists. If Bush had his way, we would have 12 million illegal immigrants on their path to citizenship and another 20 million coming in. The Democrats are even worse. I guess I'm a conspiracist because I'm concerned that Texas is building a superhighway from Mexico that luckily is stopping at the borders of my home state. I guess I'm a conspiracist because I've noticed that Mexican trucks are now allowed to drive everywhere. Of course, Governor Perry is supporting Giuliani who would enforce illegal immigration very similarly to Bush.
Here's a pretty good quote on conspiracies:Comment Posted By Patrick On 2.11.2007 @ 10:26
"Well there's nothing wrong to adding to a conspiracy theory when there might be a conspiracy, in fact," US House of Representative Dana Rohrabacher responded.
Your citing of "Holiday Inn" as a case-in-point actually makes Mr Muir's point about context. You're talking about a movie made in 1942, with one musical piece done in blackface. The context for the blackface is in the movie - Bing Crosby is trying to hide Marjorie Reynolds and uses blackface to accomplish the task. So, while you may argue that scene was embarassingly overacted, it's hard to find it offensive unless you're looking through the prism of modernity and PC.Comment Posted By Patrick On 27.04.2007 @ 09:16
Epinephrine hasn't been given intracardiac (with the big long needle directly into the heart) for many years. It's quite graphic and impressive, and also antiquated and long-shunned. At least in the civilized world.
Sorry.Comment Posted By Patrick On 3.04.2007 @ 21:49
I don't know who falls for the kak that World Nut Daily puts out, well, daily; probably the same idiots that fall for the Nigerian 419 and penny-stock scams that I get in my email.Comment Posted By patrick On 13.12.2006 @ 21:35
They had a poll on their site some time ago; most of their readers believed that the universe was only 6000 years old. That should tell you something.
The fact that the GOP has ALREADY cleaned up its act in many ways shows the mindless un-neccessity of making leftwing dolt Nancy Pelosi Speaker as a 'cure' for what ails the GOP. By clean up I mean the fact that in January 2007 the GOP leadership will be almost completely different from what it was 14 months prior.
So, this purging concept (let the dems win so we can reform the GOP) from a conservative viewpoint is a terrible idea.
Might as well prescribe amputation for athlete's foot!
I'm not interested in pre mortems. It aint over til its over.
What I am interested in is the mind-boggling fact that mediocrities like Casey in PA may beat an articulate and excellent Senator like Rick Santorum. Casey's debate performances have been pathetic. I am also worried that economic illiterates who think Bush is responsible for gas prices going up and now down are going to be elected.
I am interested in why the economic boom is being so under-reported.
I am interested in Pelosi's votes, and doubly interested in why the media feels no need to tell us what the leftwing Democrats really represent.

ROFL. Good one! (yeah, a sycophantic NPR interview of the Obama twerp, an idiot who takes huge sums of campaign $$ and then says he's for us taxpaypers paying for political campaigns - no thanks! .. rant off)
Except the online version of the story has your URL wrong in the story (but right in the picture caption).

Wow, a predatory man in a position of power, preying on (as someone said early in this thread) "teenagers". If he's a Republican, draw him and quarter him and put his head on a pike.
If he's a Democrat, close ranks around him and have his wife blame a "vast right wing conspiracy". Yep, business as usual.
The congressman is a sick man and did the right thing. Did the serial adulterer-in-chief?
And B.Poster #154, regarding fighting a war while cutting taxes, it really helps if the tax cut actually causes revenue to the Treasury jump. Continuing the prosecution of an unfinished war while revenue collected was double-digits lower than it is - that would have been irresponsible.Comment Posted By Patrick On 1.10.2006 @ 08:14
" To begin, the Democrats do not have a â€œcut and run strategy in Iraq.â€ â€œCut and runâ€ is another Rovian slogan designed to smear Democrats with the charge of cowardice, which you so dutifully repeat in your rightwing flacking. "
Yes, they do ...
"Murtha calls for immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq" - SF Chronicle, November 17, 2005
Murtha wants to withdraw and deploy in Okinawa, that great war on terror battlefield (not). Lamont has done the same. The Democrats have it crystal clear.Comment Posted By Patrick On 30.09.2006 @ 15:29
It's all about calling Iraq a failure and wanting to bug out, and to deny it is to deny the very Democrat talking points that the left has been touting for years. They want the US to fail in Iraq. The Democrats deny the basic reality that the war in Iraq is an integral part of the war on terror and that we simply cannot withdraw our troops - we have to stay and fight and win.
">Remember Democrat Gary Studds
Who? Sorry, bringing up some relic from 23 years ago isnâ€™t going to save you this time.
Thatâ€™s right, the bogeyman you are attempting to use was censured almost a quarter century ago. And the Barney Frank defense? Well that little scandle happened in 1987. "
Yet despite Barney Frank abusing his office to get his gay prostitute live-in 'friend' off of traffic offenses, he stayed in office. Despite Studds' abuse of office in going after teenage pages, he stayed in office ...
â€œAs the House read their censure of him, Studds turned his back and ignored them. Later, at a press conference with the former page standing beside him, the two stated that what had happened between them was nobodyâ€™s business but their own.â€ [Wiki]
Ah, the good ol' days, before the era of Sexual Harrassment laws... you DO realize that if anyone but a gay Democrat Congressman did this, it would be a firing and possibly criminal offense?
The point is this: When a Democrat does this, HE STAYS IN CONGRESS.
"I had pretty much the same thought, Republicans clean house, Democrats embrace their perverts as pillars of the party."
Agreed on that.
"NB: Unlike the hypocritical Foley, Studdâ€™s never actively supported and fought for anti-gay legislation. Quite the opposite, actually."
Ah, I see. If he is for the Gay Rights Agenda, he can proposition male teenagers, and everything is hunky dory.Comment Posted By Patrick On 30.09.2006 @ 15:17
IF he is against it, then suddenly sending emails to pages is a cimrinal offense... double-standard deluxe!
