    Protecting Cake From Gays

    Author Administrator

    It's days like this when I almost want to go Stephen Colbert on an article and pretend to support something absolutely ridiculous and make an equally ridiculous extremist case for my alleged view. To be entirely frank, I could do it with both sides in this case. I am speaking, of course, of the Indiana law which, amongst other things, has brought back the unfortunate saying that historically never was "Let them eat cake". The gays, of course. Because people are trying to keep the gays from eating cake? Well, not exactly. Because the gays are trying to turn bakers gay? No, not that either. The problem? We have businesses that want to act like 6 year olds and unfortunately, the gays are 5 1/2.

    It seems like Republicans have to spend more time defending themselves from misleading and unwarranted attacks from the right than they do from the left anymore. The latest attack in this troubling trend comes from Right Wing News (dot) Com, which posted a short commentary on the arrest of several pro life demonstrators, including Jill Stanek.  The group was arrested earlier today (March 25th) and charged with charged with violating D.C. Code 22-1307. The story on RWN posted part of this story from Life Site News and included a link to the whole article, and included the following observations about the story.

    Let me start by making this perfectly clear. If you are a person who believes that President Obama is not a Natural Born United States Citizen, yet you are supporting Ted Cruz in his aspirations to become President, you are a fraud. I know, it's not nice to lay it out there like that, but I don't care about nice. I care about right and wrong, and the facts of the matter are what they are. To be clear, I am not a "Birther" but I do not believe that President Obama is a natural born United States citizen, nor do I believe that Ted Cruz is either. This is not a off handed, uneducated position either. I have read the thoughts of those who believe otherwise, but I disagree. My opinions are based in a Senate Resolution that we have that speaks to the matter in question.

    SEC; 2014 And Still Overrated

    We've heard it time and again. Find anyone who follows college football or listens to sports talk radio and ask them which conference is the best conference in College Football. Without a doubt, they will say "SEC". And if they don't? They will. much like myself, be branded a hater. Now to be clear, I am not going to lecture you about which conference is the best. While I personally would say the PAC 12 this year is the best, I'm not going to try to convince you of that. What I am going to do is absolutely destroy the logic behind the knee-jerk "SEC" answer, but this time with facts and numbers. The bottom line? The South Eastern Conference is not nearly as good as you think they are.

  • Oh, Those Magical Royals

    Author Administrator

    It's that time of year again. Yes, the time where words like "pitching" and "hitting" get replaced with phrases like "they've got that magic" and "fairy dust". Last night at as I was watching the Royals cash in on that "magic" and finish off their sweep of the Angels I saw a sign in the stands that read "We have always believed. Now everyone else does." Cute sign. Realistic? No. After all, it was just a month ago that Royals Manager Ned Yost ripped into the Royals fans for not showing up to games. In fact, the Royals ranked 25th in the league in attendance this year. So no, you haven't always believed, Royals fans, and I don't believe now either. Magic and fairies can be fun. This is baseball.

Presidential Priorities

Written by Administrator on .

President Obama GolfingAfter doing last nights show, I set out on the road and drove all night listening to the radio and thinking about the points I made about President Obama's leisure activities. It seriously drives me nuts when my fellow conservatives attack the guy for playing golf. Understand that the President's job is beyond a full time job, it is an all the time job. There is no real vacation or free time for the man at the helm of the nation. What we call a Presidential vacation is more like one of those packages you win when you buy a vacuum cleaner from a door to door salesman, and have to sit in on 5 hours worth of sales pitches at a resort in exchange for an overnight trip. The man needs to be able to relax, and I frankly don't care about the style of it, the substance is just that. It is a moment that the President can only hope won't be interrupted by a meltdown in Japan or a bomb in Libya. When that is your day job, see if you don't take a round of golf where you can squeeze it in.

 

Furthermore, the President may be the Commander in Chief, but he isn't exactly on the front lines, nor do we want him there. Yet even the few and the proud find some time to relax to some stick baseball in Iraq (see video below) and I will take to task anyone who dares try and begrudge them of that. The earned this moment to forget the gravity of their situation, and I love watching this video and seeing them enjoy it. Semper Fi, Devil Dog's, and thank you for your heroic service.

That is where this article was supposed to end, however my thought process continued and this is where things got a bit complicated. It is also the moment where I thanked my lucky stars that I have the integrity to avoid the bottom-feeder purely political cheap shots that pop up along the way. It gives me a leg to stand on as I make this point that followed in my thoughts.

Yesterday, we started military action against Libya. We could debate the issue of taking such action, but I'm the kind of guy who believes once that ball starts rolling, you get behind it for the troops, no matter whom the President may be. Yet some are taking Obama to task for going to Brazil on the heels of announcing such action. Is there a legitimate case to be made there?

I personally have no beef with a business related trip at such a point, but I feel that much thought and consideration should be given to postponing a trip or even canceling it based on the gravity of the situation. However, if a President has established himself as a guy who likes to "work from the road" and keep the business of the nation going no matter what challenge may present itself at the moment, I would typically support his staying the course on his schedule.

The problem here is that I think back to the Health Care Reform law, and a trip President Obama had scheduled as that situation neared it's conclusion. A trip to Indonesia and Australia was postponed then, and this is what then Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stated to be the reason.

"The president greatly regrets the delay," Gibbs said. "But passage of health insurance reform is of paramount importance, and the president is determined to see this battle through."

Putting aside the "battle" reference that has lead to members of the right being accused of spurring lunatics into violent action, today we face a real battle. Is the President determined to see this one through? If his rescheduling of a trip signifies that determination for a health care bill that wouldn't be implemented even if passed for four years, what more noble cause for such a show of will than the treasure and lives that are carrying out this military action today?

If the President feels he can handle this situation from Brazil, I have little choice but to trust his judgment on this one.  But I can't help but question the priorities of a President who feels more compelled to show his commitment to his domestic agenda than to the troops he moved into harms way.
