I had no idea I wanted to DESTROY OUR COUNTRY

An obviously maladjusted person recently sent the Courier-Journal what might be the most paranoid editorial letter to have ever broken from this far from reality. I have come to expect the typical "Democrats want to kill babies, take our guns, and promote the gay agenda" letters during the election seasons, but 'Destroy our country' takes the cake.

If you want to erase the borders of our country, vote Democrat.

If you want our soldiers who died in Iraq to have died in vain, then vote Democrat. If you want to fight the terrorists in our country, cities and streets, then vote Democrat.

If you want to have a socialistic country, then vote Democrat. If you want to lose everything you have worked for, then vote Democrat.

If you want to be forced to worship a foreign God, then vote Democrat. If you want to lose all the freedoms we have, that Americans have fought and died for, then vote Democrat.

Face it, the Democrats want to destroy our country.

[A Clueless Republican Tool]

Louisville 40272
I could hardly take it. This guy is crazier than that Sonny Bardin guy in the Paducah Sun. I had to reply:
Wow, that Darrell Carlisle is one paranoid, tinfoil hat wearing, koolaid drinking psycho. I think I will write a paranoid rant in response:

If you want to have all your civil liberties stripped from you in the name of keeping you safe, vote Republican. Trust us, if your not doing anything wrong, there is nothing to worry about,

If you want a fundamentalist theocracy implemented in the United States, vote Republican.

If you want industrial poluters to not bear any responsibility for damaging the environment or be free from any and all nonvoluntary oversight, vote Republican.

If you want the blood of our patriots spilled for people who kill their own daughters after they are raped (Google: "honor killings"), while the mastermind of the biggest domestic attack of the last century walks free, vote Republican.

If you want leaders who say they oppose illegal immigration but really encourage it so businesses can avoid paying American citizen's a decent wage, vote Republican.

If you want social security gutted, vote Republican.

Face it, Republicans are out to destroy this country. And get rich trying.

That was fun. Its so much easier to write editorials when you don't have to stay grounded in reality. But personally, I would rather talk about real issues, there are enough of those to go around without having to invent some boogey man who is going to make you "worship a foreign God".
I don't know why I bothered. But I figured it needed saying.

Response to a Letter from a Republican Tool

Todays Courier Journal had a reader letter from another "When a Republican gets caught doing what a Democrat does..." letter. I had to post this in the forums:

I have been very amused of late of those on the right complaining about how when a Republican is caught doing something wrong he resigns and the Democrat who did the same thing stays in office. I take from it all that Republicans must be pretty incompetent if they can't beat a guy who leaves a girl in a car to drown, or has sex with a 17 year old like Studds did in 1983(?) or have your boyfriend run a gay prostitution ring like Frank did.

I mean for gosh sakes they have THAT to work with and they can't beat these guys? Is it because the 'Liberal Media', is aligned with the Democrats and ignore Pulitzer worthy stories because they would rather advance some secular-fundamentalist agenda? Is it because those particular Congress critters represent enclaves of crazed degenerate Liberals who want to destroy America? Is it because the sodomites who make up most of the Democratic party tolerate deviancy more than the upstanding, righteous and chaste tea-totalers who make up the GOP?

That's the story I would stick with, and, oh yeah, the Democrats set Foley up. Whatever, I hope the tinfoil hat fits. I think a lot of partisans out there need to realize most Americans are aware that, as I believe Strom Thurmond once said, "There is not a dime's bit of difference" between the two. When they get up to the Hill, Republican or Democrat, they start caring more and more about the people who buy those $500 plates at their fundraising luncheons and less and less about the people pulling the levers that got them there. I would just as soon send every dang one of them packing this November.

The Hours of Foley are Measured by the Clock, but of Wisdom no Clock can Measure

Please forgive me William Blake. I'm sure your spinning in your grave from that little misappropriation. But when I first saw that Foley had resigned and with his name being unfamiliar, my first thought was "Please, oh please, let him be be a Republican. This is going to be so much fun if he is a Republican". I knew I was going to have to write about it. It is just too rich. Here we have a member of the party of Virtue, defenders of traditional society from the radical encroachment of homosexuals, and the party of personal responsibility, let us not forget, talking dirty to some young boys. I could feel the spin machines revving up to full throttle, with a stressed out Scottsmen down below yelling up "I'm giving it all she's got, Captain, any more and she's boun' to blow".

We ARE talking spin machines here, not Monica Lewinsky this time. But what can I say when so many are saying it for me or in spite of reality in the case of some apologists.

Scarborough tells Democrats to Shut Up or We'll Bring up Studds*:
I would suggest that Democrats remember Napoleon’s advice that one should never interfere when your enemy is destroying himself. Dems should keep quiet so not to open themselves up to charges of hypocrisy. After all, their party did little when one of their colleagues had a homosexual affair with a 17 year old intern—engaging in sex with the teen in his Georgetown apartment and then taking him to Portugal to carry on the illicit affair. The disgraced representative remained in Congress for another decade and was never stripped of anything other than his clothes by the teenage boy.

Matt Drudge: It’s the slutty little fag-bitches fault:
(some psychic friends of mine were kind enough to provide Drudges thoughts in brackets)
And if anything, these kids are less innocent — these 16 and 17 year-old [hot, sweaty and bareskinned] beasts…and I've seen what they're doing on YouTube and I've seen what they're doing all over the internet — oh yeah [you filthy little boy-sluts] — you just have to tune into any part of their pop culture [ and I tune in every possible chance I get]. You're not going to tell me these are innocent babies [they are hot filthy boy toys, just how I like'em]. Have you read the transcripts that ABC posted going into the weekend of these instant messages, back and forth? [I have, over and over, each and every perverse, disgusting minute of it] The kids are
egging the Congressman on [harder and faster]! The kids are trying to get this out of him. We haven't got the whole story on this. [ and I'm not gonna stop investigating it till I get the money shot]

You could say "well Drudge, it's abuse of power, a congressman abusing these impressionable, young 17 year-old beasts, talking about their sex lives with a grown man, on the internet." [And if he was a Democrat, I would be too.] Because you have to remember, those of us who have seen some of the transcripts of these nasty instant messages [every filthy, disgusting word of it, over and over]. This was two ways [front door and back door, oh yeah], ladies and gentlemen. These kids were playing Foley for everything he was worth. Oh yeah [, the dirty little boy fags, I would like to give them everything I was worth, I would give them an up and down vote on my bill]. Oh, I haven't…[but I sure would like to] they were talking about how many times they'd masturbated, how many times they'd done it with their girlfriends this weekend…all these things and these "innocent children." And this "poor" congressman sitting there typing, "oh am I going to get any," you know? [I know that's what I was thinking, how many times those hot young boys were masturbating, shirtless.]

Drudge, your sick dude.

The Let's Look Like We are OK with Gays, Just not THOSE Gays Strategy:
"All I want, frankly, is a gay person in office who is not a sexual compulsive"

The Same Strategy with a Hint of Did the Democrats do this as an October Surprise:

From Mr. Tolerance himself, Orielly: "It wasn't an issue at all until now"

The Same Strategy with a We Care about Gay People Smidgen Thrown In:
GOP would have "been accused of gay bashing"

Michelle Malkin eats her own:
At Least She Is Consistent, No Apologies, None of her typical Right-Wing Slack Cutting.
Possibly the first time I had a modicum of respect for this particular cup of crazy.

WSJ: Democrats are hypocrites, Or Lets Bring Up Studds*
(and Barney Frank, even though it was his boyfriend who was the pimp).

It was the booze talking, Tony Snow chastises Democrats
He considered it unfortunate that "people are thinking, 'OK, can I get political advantage out of this'." Republicans would never try to get a political advantage from a sex scandal, OH NOOOOOOOOOO. If I had been at that press conference, I'd be doing that thing from Animal House where you say "bullshit" when you cough.

The Oxycontin has Made Rush paranoid

Limbaugh: "Democrats set Foley up" or the anal cysts that kept him out of Vietnam are eating into his brain.

Page's Parents at Fault says some idiot poster
While just a simple message board troll, proof that idiocy is across the board.

A product of Dianetics?
It was the Thetons that made him do it.

Party of Responsibility, my Ass
Botox Queen and self righteous ass says Repugs didn't know, but the media and Democrats did, and heads will roll because "our children were at stake."

It’s the Democrats fault again.
They did it first, and didn't have the decency to resign.
AKA: The Republicans-do-the-abominable-things-before-they-do-the-decent-thing-and-resign,
Strategy. I mean you must really suck to get beat repeatably by a guy who gets caught banging a 17 year old boy*.

GOP Hack gets pwned.
I wish the rest of the Democratic Party would grow a set of testicles like this dude. Fat chance I know, but a guy's got to dream, not in the same way Foley dreamed about "growing" sets of testicles though.

Foley Contributes big around the same time his previous "overly friendly" emails were "ignored".
Move along now, there is nothing to see here.

It's a priests fault:
If I had known he was an altar boy, I would have seen this coming.

Ben Stein: Democrats being the party of Gays should shut up and 22 is "barely legal".
He says Clinton had barely legal Monica "give him oral sex kneeling under his desk in the Oval Office while he talked on the phone to a Congressional Committee Chairman, took great pleasure in putting a cigar in her orifice and then smelling it and tasting it, and having her fellate him". Orifice? Me thinks Ben needs to get laid. But "misguided" Republican had a "romantic thing for young boys" & "a big part of male homosexual behavior is interest in young boys" Boy, and they say that defending Clinton is defending the indefensible. Its ok for him to say that because his best friend is gay. He doesn't mention who this is, I wonder why? Maybe it was that pedophile Jeffrey Jones who played the principal in "Ferris Bueller".

James Buchanan. Wow.
"Even worse, there are plans to change the Republican Party to make it just as Gay-friendly as the Democrats." He should borrow some Oxycontin off of Rush and get laid with Ben Stein.

I (nor they) just can't stop!
Gary Bauer is the guy the blogger at Jesus' General is always reminding is not a homosexual.

*In Case you don't remember the Studds Scandal from 23 years ago:
BTW, It doesn't end 23 years ago. "Studds and his longtime partner, Dean Hara, who had been together since 1991, applied for one of the first gay-marriage licenses and were married in Boston in 2005, one week after same-sex marriages became legal in Massachusetts." See this comes full circle around to Gay Marriage!

Proof You Won't Stereotype Me as a Liberal

In case you don't know me, let me tell you that my wife and I do not have children. It was not by choice. We know that there are other options available to us, but at this time we do not wish to go through with them, for reasons I do not wish to discuss with anyone except my wife. But this particular "trial" that we have endured has certainly made us hold to higher standards those that the Lord has blessed with children. We have very little sympathy for those that would not treasure the most precious gift that they could ever receive.

Personally, I am very squeamish about abortion. But because of what my wife and I went through I am hesitant to call a fertilized egg a baby, knowing how many were likely flushed down our toilet as my wife endured ever more painful periods as endometrial tissue buildup upon not only her uterus but here intestines as well. It is because of what we went through that we both generally feel that if you decide to get so far as to actually have children, given that you still have options to do otherwise, I mean even after a baby is born you can leave it at a fire station, if
you after that fail at doing the very basic decent thing for that child, well then something might need to be done.

There was this story this weekend about a group of juveniles, all under 14, who go out and rob a video store. But the big point of the story is about a City Councilman, Larry Shirley, making some statement about how their mothers ought to be sterilized if they can't take care of them. "What we've got is a failure in society, whether it's in Mount Pleasant with yuppie parents or whether it's on the East Side with poor crackhead parents."

The Democratic response is under whelming. According to State Sen. Robert Ford: "What Larry Shirley needs to talk about is getting City Council to provide some recreational facilities and activities for these kids." If only these kids had had some activities they would not have pulled a gun on a video store clerk. Please.

If they can't prevent their 12 and nine year old boys from robbing video stores at gun point, I personally wouldn't find much concern over their parents (NOT JUST THE MOTHERS) getting sterilized, especially nowadays that such operations are becoming more successfully reversible. It's not like it's a death sentence, if they are able to afford to reverse it, they might be able to provide for the kids they have. I actually think that the specter of vasectomization would be quite the motivating factor for the "casual dad".

So sorry to disappoint anyone who might think that's a little too close to eugenics or some other bull crap. You have to get a license to drive a car but not to have a baby. Not that I would advocate requiring a license to have children, that would be scarily Orwellian. But just so you know where my lack of sympathy comes from, that's it.

People, do right by your kids. There are a lot of folks out there that just wish they had got the chance.
