Happenings at the Republican National Convention

Posted by Troy on 29th August 2012 in Current Events, Political

First, let me say that I really enjoyed Ann Romney’s speech.  It actually made me feel a little better about voting for the guy, and I’m not moved by such things generally.  She came across as utterly sincere.  I believe that she loves her husband absolutely and unconditionally.  When she said that her husband does not fail, I believe her.  I bet he has always accomplished his goals.  She also reminded people that, although they are wealthy now, they had their rough times when they were first getting started and during her illness.  Of course, all of this was summed up by Juan Williams calling her a “corporate wife.”  Pretty bloody insulting there.  So we sum people up with a two word phrase, eh?  I postulate that there was nothing Ann could have said that Juan wouldn’t have trashed.  Of course, calling her a corporate wife who cannot relate to the common man must be based upon the assumption that Michelle Obama can somehow relate to the common man with her jet trips and fancy clothes and foods.  Hey, at least the Romneys pay for their own extravagance, not the taxpayers.  One thing that I can tell you we will never hear from Ann Romney say is: “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country!”  Know who said that?  Michelle Obama.  And she did it on two separate occasions.  I can tell you that there is no way Michelle Obama can relate to me.  I have always been proud of my country, even when they screw up and elect someone like Obama.

In other news, Yahoo fired David Chalian for saying that Republicans are “happy to have a party with black people drowning.”  Good for them.  Let me just say, I’m sick and tired of everyone crying and flying the flag at half mast over every single death (oh, and so far there’s only one confirmed death from Hurricane Issac).  Here’s a question to Chalian, “What do you suppose we do then?  Should everybody stop living their lives and fake mourn and wail for people we don’t know?”  No.  I would say we should probably carry on with our own lives.  If we feel so compelled, it would be nice to contribute to relief efforts and what not, but this is a piddy little Category 1 storm.  Psh!  Grow up, dude.  This isn’t Katrina.

Anyway, the convention is going great.  Paul Ryan gave a tremendous speech.  Hopefully the ticket will be able to stay on message.  If they keep hammering the truth about the economy and the budget, there is little that Obama will be able to do.  If someone is wielding the sword truth against you, you will soon find your shield of lies shall shatter.

Long Live the Constitution!

National Defense Authorization Act

Today they released a report saying that domestic terrorists tend to blame the government or speak out about the government and use the Internet to connect with like minded people.  Even though the NDAA allows people to be arrested by the military and stripped of their constitutional rights (Amendments 5 to 8), there’s no cause for concern.  Of course, this could be used to describe the Tea Party, Anonymous, and countless other groups as terrorists.  The politicians admit this, but say that they would never abuse this power.  My favorite part of the debate was Mitt Romney being booed when he said he would have signed the NDAA.  Here’s the thing, even if I trusted Obama with all my heart (sorry, I couldn’t stop laughing…I’m back now), there’s no way I would give FUTURE PRESIDENTS WHO I DO NOT KNOW this power.  Someone is going to abuse it.

Ron Paul has put a bill up to repeal the most egregious part of the NDAA.  And yet people call Ron Paul dangerous.  Which is more dangerous to you?  Iran with a nuclear weapon, or your government stripping your rights?  Which of these two is actually more likely?  Iran uses a nuclear weapon, or your government crushing all of our liberties?

Long Live the Constitution!
