Chick Fil A enters the world of Conspiracy Theories with it's American Idol upset.
Just how far can one organization go on a chicken sandwich and a full tank of hate? According to some gay groups, pretty damned far. It appears that they can even overcome the will of the general public and change the outcome of elections. They can vote multiple times, and keep the best man from winning. They can turn a singer who is barely qualified to sing at the Grand Opening of a Shopping Center into an American Idol. How? Read on, readers.
But was it as effortless as we are told?
I was listening to FOX News on Sirius radio this morning and they kept pitching this story about how a man effortlessly bypassed JFK Airport Security. Each time they teased the story, I became more and more curious as to how one could slip by without any effort. Was he in a motorized wheelchair? Did a friend fireman carry him past the guards? It seems like someone would have noticed that. Here is how the New York Post started the story.
Remember Cindy... what's her name?
Meet Joe Soptic. He's the latest in the long line of people that make the tragic mistake of thinking that the Democrats care. Trust me, they don't. So Joe is now the latest victim of the Democrats who gets suckered into exploiting the memory of a dead relative for the best interest of the party. I know, it seems like the thing to do at the time. The media attention and all of the politicians fawning over you makes it seem as if they are genuinely concerned. They will give you well wishes and follow you around... until election day, that is. They don't care about your loved one. They don't want to make it better for you. They just want the emotion of your story behind their campaign. Speaking of which, has anyone seen Cindy Sheehan?
The latest battle in America's War On Women?
This is the declaration from "The New Civil Rights Movement", a website of the liberal idiot, by the liberal idiot, and for the liberal idiot. But what actually happened here? Recently, two women who are in the Air Force decided to have themselves photographed breastfeeding their babies (pictured right) and posted the image to Mom2Mom, a support group on facebook for breastfeeding mothers. The image was, and still is up on the site. The women were, and still are actively serving in the Air Force. The police did not, and are not moving in to arrest the women for indecency. So how exactly is this a "battle in America's War On Women?" From what I can gather, it is such because some people didn't like the picture and publicly said so.
Land of the free, because of the brave.
I was alerted to this by a friend of mine on facebook, and at first I assumed it was one of those urban legends that get cycled around the trucking industry. I decided to get the "who's who and what's what" on the matter, and nope. It's a true story, and in fact it was worse than the headline would imply. It wasn't just that they didn't have a flag up, but when some enterprising driver found out that there was a Marine Veteran working in the parking lot, he decided to take matters into his own hands and raise Old Glory high. The driver (as seen in the video below) climbed the flagpole to put a rope in place, then talked to the store manager about allowing the Marine to raise the flag. She declined the offer, so he raised it himself. And that is when the Truck Stop took it down.
Can a leopard change his spots?
Many times the answer to some of the political questions that face us is somewhere right in the middle of the left and the right. The left will often make absurd claims like "Republicans want dirty air and water" and the right will respond with "Democrats want people to get abortions." While there may be a handful of extremists who for whatever reason want dirty air or water, nobody is going to believe a statement as idiotic as that. Furthermore, most Democrats who support abortion rights have a much more moderate position on the issue like I do myself. While abortion is objectionable and should be used only as a last resort, it is a medical decision that a woman must make for herself, and her decision should not be legislated by the Government. So what of this war on women we have been hearing about? Where does the truth lie on this issue?
The Marine who went to war.
On this Memorial Day, I wanted to honor the memory of one of the great Marines who has gone before us and set the mark that those who follow try our best to live up to. To many people who see the Iwo Jima monument, it is an iconic picture of America at war. To Marines, it is a reminder of one of our great accomplishments in battle. To the Marines that were there that day, it was an inspiration to keep fighting a battle that at times seemed unwinable. To Ira Hayes, it was a snapshot of a moment in time with his "good buddies," some of which would never walk off of that miserable island.
Tell the stick figure family to "stick it."
Even I couldn't have a bone to pick with such a harmless and innocent gesture as the stick figure families that are adorning the back of vehicles across the country, right? Wrong. Yes, these cute little characters seem to spread a happy little message of love, joy, and family. They should bring hope and happiness to all who see them. They should fill the heart with warmth like a tiny little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. But not so fast. I don't know exactly what it was the first time I laid eyes on these anorexic heathens, but I knew that something was amiss and I was determined to figure it out.
