This is where I will put my upsets, resentments, reasonings and logical commentary on why liberalism is a threat to the United States of America! Dagney Taggert is a character from Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged", but she was also my teacher. She taught me the fallacy of my liberal upbringing. If you are a liberal, you may see some of the fallacy of it here, too...unless you're braindead!
I've really got to quit putting it off, and invest in a laptop! When I get home the e-mail boxes are jammed, it takes forever to clean them out. That's nothing to the frustration of not being able to vent my spleen when I hear Ted "The Bloat" Kennedy do his best to undermine our country's efforts in every area he thinks he can hurt the President! Then add insult to injury by demanding that 12,000 to 15,000 troops be brought home immediately, knowing damned good and well that is the size of the contingent sent to prepare for and oversee the recent successful election in Iraq. That way, when they bring home the election specialists, he can say the Pentagon and the President are paying attention to his moronic raving!
" Kennedy, the first senator to call for a troop pullback in Iraq, has led the Democratic anti-war opposition to Bush with volley after volley of bellicose rhetoric.
The Bay State senator said America's goal should be to withdraw its 157,000-troop force in Iraq as early as possible in 2006.
He added that Bush should signal his intention to withdraw by pulling out 12,000 forces immediately. "
The man is patently transparent! Are the Massachusetts ballots pre-marked for sKerry and Kennedy, a la Syria? Surely, the people of Massachusetts can't be intentionally sending this duo of 60's anti-war relics back to the Senate on purpose, could they?
On a good note, Alaa, of The Messopotamian has this to say to Americans and especially to our President, after the historic and miraculous elections in Iraq;
What we have witnessed is something amazing. I am an Iraqi and a Baghdadi and should know, and deep down in my heart I knew; yet I must admit that I did not expect all this. The common Iraqi citizen has taken all by surprise, including those of us who are indigenous to this land."
Alaa has historically been one of those bloggers who was hopeful for Iraq's future, but not always optimistic, so this was beautiful to see! When they astounded themselves, it is even more wonderful to behold. He goes on to tell of stories untold by the MSM.
"There were amazing scenes; not very likely to seen anywhere else. There were acts of heroism. Abdul Amir Kadhim, saw a man whom he suspected to be a suicide bomber, he threw himself on the man before he could get to the waiting line of people; and sure there was an explosion and this young man gave his life to save the others. Prime Minister Allawi paid tribute to this heroism.
At one station there was a suicide attack and several people fell; when people of the neighborhood heard of this, the waiting line suddenly swelled to three times in size; people rushed out of their homes and came running to wait in line; it was their way to express their defiance and anger at this crime.
The examples of bravery and courage are too numerous to recount. People took courage from each other, as people came out others watched and did not want to be left out. It was something incredible to watch. Yes this was a historic day, a day to remember until our dying day.
With one stroke, in a single day, the silent majority spoke and answered all the pundits and doubters, and those who spoke on their behalf. Yet we have been telling you this all along; we have been telling you ever since this blogging movement started.
Do you now see that we were not representing minority views, that we were not some CIA agents trying to make propaganda?" [paragraph insertions are mine, for better emphasis]
Yes, Alaa, they spoke volumes to all the naysayers the world over. And yes, it's true, the lefty wingnuts have actually gone to many of the Iraqi blogs, and accused them of being CIA, etc., which says more about the lefty wingnuts than it does about the Iraqis who are brave enough to blog, in spite of warnings from terrorists that they will be killed for doing it.
I am among a great number of blog readers from all over the world who can hardly wait for the day that Iraq is an open and welcoming country to visit. I am looking forward with eagerness to attend the camel bbq promised us by Sam at Hammorabi. Someday, I want to visit the birthplace of civilization that was and is Messopotamia, so that I can welcome it to the world of great democracies, despite the likes of Ted (hic) Kennedy.
If you think Americans are upset about the UN, read what Sam has to say about them. Sam, I second that emotion!
