Violence Against Obama Opponents

From ALIPAC  I see:

Compilation of News and Blog Reports of Political Violence in the 2012 Elections 

This post lists numerous incidents of vandalism and violence directed at Romney/Ryan supporters, Tea Party gatherings, and more.

This must be the famous Liberal "tolerance" and "civility" we are always being told about.

Based on the last year or two, especially the smearing of the Tea Party and other  conservatives, and the disgraceful Left-wing posturing over the Trayvon Martin affair:

Black Racists:

In the second category are the New Black Panthers , Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Shelia Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Andre Carson, Toure', all black Democratic Congresscritters, and Barack Obama.  May they all rot in hell. UPDATE:  Add Eric Holder, most emphatically.

If I Had a Race-Baiting President, He Would Look Just Like This

Mark Steyn on Afghanistan: ‘Die, Die, Foreigners!’

....The mobs outside the bases enflamed over the latest Western affront to their exquisitely refined cultural sensitivities couldn’t put it any plainer:

“Die, die, foreigners!”
USAF Lieutenant Colonel John Loftis, 44, and Army Major Robert Marchanti II, 48, lost their lives not on some mission out on the far horizon in wild tribal lands in the dead of night but in the offices of the Afghan Interior Ministry. In a “secure room” that required a numerical code to access. Gunned down by an Afghan “intelligence officer.”
Some news outlets reported the event as a “security breach.” But what exactly was breached? The murderer was by all accounts an employee of the Afghan government, with legitimate rights of access to the building and its secure room, and “liaising” with his U.S. advisers and “mentors” was part of the job.
It is sufficiently non-unusual that the Pentagon, as is the wont with bureaucracies, already has a term for it: “green-on-blue incidents,” in which a uniformed Afghan turns his gun on his Western “allies.”
what we don’t have is a strategy to stop it — other than more money, more “hearts and minds” for people who seem notably lacking in both, and more bulk orders of the bestselling book Three Cups of Tea, an Oprahfied heap of drivel extensively exposed as an utter fraud but which a delusional Washington insists on sticking in the kit bag of its Afghan-bound officer class.
They can breach our security, but we cannot breach theirs — the vast impregnable psychological fortress in which what passes for the Pashtun mind resides. Someone accidentally burned a Koran your pals had already defaced with covert messages? Die, die, foreigners!
 [Emphasis added.}

Much more at the link:
Die, Die, Foreigners!

These are not people - these are animals.  Islam makes animals.  This is not Germany or Japan - you cannot build a Western-style representative republic "nation" out of the dregs of humanity that reside in Afghanistan.

Leave them, let them destroy each other - and let them know that we'll be back if Al Qaeda comes back.  And the Rules Of Engagement next time will be to kill all who need it, and then leave again.

My Name is Bobn and I WAS a Liberal

The latter part of a wise man’s life is taken up in curing the follies, prejudices, and false opinions he had contracted in the former.
- Jonathan Swift

How I became a Liberal in the first place is a different story.  Long story short: In college, I came to perceive large corporations as a bigger threat than large government.  (Reading the stories of how Ford Motor Company calculated that is was cheaper to incinerate passengers and drivers than it was to fix their gas tank problems ($11 per car )is one thing that has always stuck with me.)  I thought the Democrats were more likely to regulate than the Republicans, so I started voting Democratic.  I did not swallow the full meal - I was always vehemently opposed to illegal immigration and "comprehensive reform" to legalize them - but I sat at the table for many years.

However, in 2007, things changed.  I became aware, early that year, of the astounding housing Bubble and the insane mortgage bubble behind it - and that many if not all the major banks were actually insolvent when (not if) it all fell apart.  I was so convinced that I started taking steps to sell the house I had purchased in late 2005, (when I was not aware of much of anything financial).  Unfortunately August 2007 happened before I got it together.

August 2007 was when the prices of houses stopped going up and the foolishness of all the assumptions based on the Grand Assumption of ever-increasing house prices became more evident; the subprime securitizatoion markets died in a matter of weeks, if not days.

What that instructed me was: not only was the system a house of cards, but that sometimes it can get very windy in a hurry - even after a long, seemingly calm period.

I thought that things stood a chance of going into a Great Depression or worse at any time - and this Liberal decided that he wanted guns.  And ammo.  Preferably lots of each.

I went shooting with some buddies, whom I had jokingly called "gun nuts" for some time - "really, why do you need so many guns?" - who gently beat me about the neck and ears about the safe handling of guns.

They also patiently explained to me that the "people" referred to in the 2nd Amendment really, really were the very same "people" referred to everywhere  else in the Bill of Rights - no matter what some goofy Liberals thought "all that stuff before the commas" said.  The "people" were all of us - not the National Guard or some State or Federally designated organisation - the "people" is us, "we the people".

Then I started reading some facts and some more facts - and I realized that all politicians lie, but nobody lies like gun-grabbing Liberals.

And that was the start.

(update 20120225 - The original title of this entry was "My Name is Bobn and I Am A Recovering Liberal".  This is an erroneous take on a manner of introductions used in 12-Step meetings.   For example, in AA it would be: "My Name is Bobn and I Am A Recovering Alcoholic".  The error in my application is that the take in 12-Step programs is that you never stop being alcoholic - you avoid the consequences of being alcoholic by never drinking.  However, I have stopped being Liberal. )

Bob Beckel Humor

Bob Beckel makes an amazing gaffe; hilarity  ensues all the way to the break as Beckel (hides face), Gutfeld (cracking up hopelessly), Perino ("Kimberly, get us out of here"), and Guilfoyle ("stay with us if you’re not horrified”) vainly try to cope:

Judging form a search of Youtube, Beckel has a history of this sort of thing.........

Wonders Never Cease - Ann Coulter is a DeadHead

(For those who somehow don't know, Deadheads are the fans of the Ronck'n'Roll band The Grateful Dead.)

‘Deadheads Are What Liberals Claim to Be But Aren’t’:An Interview with Ann Coulter

I never cared for her unceasing defense of all things GWB, but more and more, I agree with much of her writings.

Some great quotes from this interview:

chicks love Bobby

Oddly enough, I like the music. No one believes that I never took drugs at Dead shows (except for the massive clouds of passive marijuana smoke) but I went because I really liked the music. There are various groups I get enthusiastic about for awhile, but of all the music I’ve listened to over the years, the Grateful Dead is the one band I never grow tired of.
Moreover, I really like Deadheads and the whole Dead concert scene: the tailgating, the tie-dye uniforms, the camaraderie it was like NASCAR for potheads. You always felt like you were with family at a Dead show  - a rather odd, psychedelic family that sometimes lived in a VW bus and sold frightening looking “veggie burritos.” But whatever their myriad interests, clothing choices, and interest in illicit drugs, true Deadheads are what liberals claim to be but aren’t: unique, free-thinking, open, kind, and interested in different ideas.
Of course, we were also supposed to say “Phil makes the band.” I love Phil, but when Jerry died, that turned out not to be true.
One of my Dead friends I met at Vail made candles for Grateful Dead merchandizing. His daily routine consisted of waking up, smoking a bowl, and turning on the Rush Limbaugh radio show while he made his candles. (It’s true. He’s so far out there he practices this weird, freaky ritual known as “commerce.” Don’t try telling me pot is harmless!)
[Someone] might not like “Space”, but no one who was not on drugs did.

About Me

I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
