I will use this blog to do three things. One, provide a voice of opposition to the liberal controlled government. Two, to track their progress on promises they made to get elected (to see if they ever deliver.) Three, to vent, educate, and to work through my own frustration. Please read the ground rules if you wish to respond to this blog.

But I couldn’t leave two issues alone. The rest, including the marketing reaction, the giddy news media, the Obama picks, and the state of the nation can wait until next week or in the future.
This item I couldn’t leave alone.
For years conservatives have been told by the left to be more tolerant. That we should let people live their lives how they want, and that we should accept all people. They spew their enlightened state of progressive acceptance and shout loudly against anyone who is perceived to be intolerant of someone’s lifestyle, thought process, or choices, good or bad. They believe that we should accept everyone.
Oh, except people who voted for marriage between one man and one woman.
They same people who were for tolerance before the “historic” election had this to say after the marriage votes:
"Burn their f---ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers,"
"Can someone in CA please go burn down the Mormon temples there, PLEASE. I mean seriously. DO IT."
"Remember, I'm angry. And I'm strong from my years at the gym and really am ready to take my frustration out on someone or something."
“Hope the gay waiters at their hotel p---ed in all the drinks they served these cretins,"
(All can be found at http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=80220 )
Wow, and these are the tolerance ones? There is always talk about how conservatives are the ones who are bigots, intolerant and fanatics. If the conservatives, or a church on their websites placed any one of these statements there would be a full blown investigation, hate speech laws would be invoked, and the national news media would be all over it.
The silence from the ACLU is deafening. Aren’t they the ones who should be running to the defense of these churches? Oh, that’s right; they don’t really want to ensure everyone’s rights, just people who agree with them philosophically.
The silence from the media is deafening. Blurb coverage, to not disrupt Obamanation coverage.
The vote was taken, YOU lost! Just as I lost in the general election. You want to tout the democratic process, but only if you win? You want the system to work only when it side with you?
If you ever thought there was a reason to doubt what liberals say, this is it. When they tell you that you should accept and move on, be tolerant of others lifestyles, and stand up for those who are different, remind them of how good of a job they did when the vote didn’t go their way on marriage. Remind them of when they stood up for Mormons and Catholics who have a different point of view. Remind them of how they did such a good job praising the democratic system that voted, and made a decision based on what the voters wanted. They got what they wanted in the general election and I didn’t like it. Am I threatening to burn down Obama’s house? No. Am I threatening to physically harm a liberal? No.
But, a word of caution to those Gay Extremists who think that they could harm buildings, churches and people who were proponents of the one man, one woman marriage.
We cling to our guns and religion.
Push comes to shove, you will see an overwhelming force you did not know existed. My faith in my religion is stronger than your belief in your homosexuality. It is not a choice for me either.
Oh, grasshopper. The road to bliss is paved with empty promises.
The first months in office Congress and Obama are going to repeal the Bush tax cuts. Repeal, as in abolish, abate, halt, terminate, end and you will then go back to the old system where everyone across the board pays higher taxes. This part is fact. Even the nurse will pay more in taxes.
“But, but, Obama said that if I made under $250k, that he would not raise my taxes, he promised!”
Oh, grasshopper. The road to bliss is also paved in half truths.
He isn’t raising taxes. He’s repealing the Bush tax cuts. So even if you are paying more in taxes, he keeps his end of the deal. Weren’t you paying attention on how he said what he said, or did you just stop listening after “hate Bush, I give you hope, change you can believe in.”
Then, if the climate is right and Congress is willing, he will move into his brilliant tax plan of redistribution of your wealth. Yes, even you nurse Kelly.
You see, once Congress gets a hold of that extra cash, do you think that they are going to give it up? C’mon, honestly? Have you not paid attention over the past two decades? He doesn’t have to give you anything, he just has to keep his promise of not raising taxes and you’ll just go on with your lives, not knowing that the white lie he told was to get you to look past the repeal of Bush’s tax cuts, get him elected, and give him power. He raised your taxes and you weren't even aware of it. Once again you were used, and you didn't even know it. Brilliant!
Think I’m wrong? Wait and see. The next tax year after Bush’s cuts are repealed take a look at your 1040’s tax tables. I bet you a wooden nickel and a trip to Tortilla Flats that you pay more then you did in 2008. I bet McCain’s $150 tax cut looks better than the $1,200 more you’ll pay in taxes that year.
Then again, I hear paying more taxes is still patriotic. That’s why rich Democrats don’t use any loopholes when they visit with their accountants come tax season. They always give every dime, happily, don’t they. In your dreams.
