The ravings of a Sith Conservative!

Thank you JJ Abrams

FULL DISCLOSURE: I’m a geek.  If you don’t believe me, ask my wife (@RavensRedd).  She’ll tell you that I’m into video games, action figures, toys, Legos… If your five-year old is into it, so am I.

I’m not saying that all geeks are childish, we just choose not to grow up.

Also, I’m a film NUT!  I love to watch movies more than just about anything that I can think of.  Not only do I watch a lot of movies, I study film, memorize the most mundane facts about every film that I own (almost 500), look at patterns of what’s going on in the world of film.

For example: A few years ago, around 2000, we went through a comic-book phase of movies.  Almost every film that was released for several years was an adaptation of a comic book.  There was Blade, Elektra, X-Men, Daredevil, Spiderman, Fantastic 4, Mystery Men, Hulk, Hellboy…. The list continues for some time, and you don’t want me to list the films made in Japan.

Another trend, the use of trilogies… Scream, Saw (ok, so it’s a trilogy TWICE), Lord of the Rings, the Matrix….  A lot of trilogies that were released around the same time.

I’ve noticed another trend in Hollywood right now.  “Re-Boots”.

This is taking an established series of films and making the “first” in that series.

Still don’t get it?  Batman Begins, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Friday the 13th (2008), Star Trek, and the upcoming release of A Nightmare on Elm St (Superman Returns MIGHT fit on this list… I’ll let you argue it).

The biggest reason given for these reboots: To be true to the fans.  Let’s face it, Batman & Robin (staring George Clooney, Chris O’Donnell, Uma Thurman and the Governator) WAS HORRIBLE!  There were more gay jokes in that film than in the last posting by Perez Hilton!  With the overwhelming success of Star Trek Deep Space Nine, something had to be done to bring Trek fans back into the fold.  Rob Zombie knew that we were ready for Michael Myers to terrorize us again, so he decided to try it out, and it was hugely successful!

Before you close your browser thinking I’ve had too much coffee and are ranting for the sake of ranting, I’m not.

Let’s take a look at the Tea-Party movement across America.  What is this?  What is it all about?  Simple: IT’S A RE-BOOT OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY!  It’s a movement by the fans, and they are demanding that the GOP return to the roots of the story!

Much like Trekkies (sorry guys, but you’re the most enthusiastic about your show), we demand satisfaction! The GOP has tried to go the Deep Space Nine route, and it hasn’t worked!

So, to the leaders of the GOP: You now have two choices: 1) You continue this path you’re on trying to be “more inclusive”, in which case, we’ll start a third party, and I’m sorry Mrs Palin, a third party WILL WORK!, or 2) You stop this madness and return the GOP to the roots that it was founded upon: SMALL GOVERNMENT, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, CUTTING TAXES,  AND CUT SPENDING!

It’s your choice, because if you won’t hear our cries, we’ll simply tune you out and continue to be enamored by our “Good Ole Days” (i.e., the Reagan era).

Playing by the Rules

Posted by darthkeller on November 16, 2009

I was raised in a house with a simple thought when it came to sports: It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.  In my teenage years, I had amended that thought slightly: It’s only about winning or losing, who cares how you get there!

I’m now much older, and I realize that I was wrong.  I realize that it’s all about how you play the game.  It’s about honoring the sport you’re playing; it’s about honoring those that came before you.  I watch the NBA and the way players play the game, and I think, “How can you disrespect players like ….?”

Last August we watched NBC attempt to talk around the only issue that seemed to matter: The Chinese female Olympic team was underage.  They would say things like: Well, if they’re good enough to be here, why does it matter?  Why does it matter? Simple: Everyone who plays a game has agreed to a set of rules before participation.  It doesn’t matter whether they were good enough or not, they were breaking rules that they themselves agreed to follow.

If that’s the argument that’s going to be used, then why not get rid of penalties in football, or fouls in basketball, or throw out any reason for tossing a player out of a baseball game! They are all good enough to play in their respective professional sport, therefore, according to the talking heads at NBC, there should be no penalties for not playing by any rules!

I know, this sounds like a weird rant on sports, but actually, it’s not.  It’s about politics.  You see, the Left has applied this technique for years! Think about it: Whenever any politician on the Right has shown that they are human, and therefore capable of making a mistake, they are portrayed as the worst living human being of all time!  Mark Sanford, who cheated on his wife, an act that I find about as despicable as any offense a man can perform, was on my TV for a week straight! Nothing but dissecting his home life, his credit card receipts, going through his garbage looking for that next piece of evidence.  Not only that, but the Left began to attack his policy decisions.  I’m sorry, but I’m not sure how cheating on your wife relates to your belief on lower taxes… Could be me, but those two don’t seem to mix very well.

Where was all this when it happened to Bill Clinton?  Sure, they talked about his infidelity; they all asked how Hillary could stay with him, etc.  But, I never once heard about how this might affect his policy.

This is Alinsky’s rules straight out of the playbook.  #13 (#11 in some lists….): “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it.”

The fact is, the Left will always try to personalize every attack.  Why? Because they know that if they were forced to have an honest debate on policy, the American people would choose the freer system every time, and that would almost always play to the Republican Party.  So, they choose, instead, to attack the individuals.  This isn’t just a Left/Right issue either.

Look at the way Hillary Clinton was treated in the 2008 Democratic Primary.  Wow!  The only person I have ever seen treated with as much contempt was Sarah Palin, and that was only after they had practiced on Clinton.

This isn’t just kept in current politics either.  I’m sure some of you have heard of Progressive History.  Progressive History is the idea that, in every lesson of history see how you can blame the US and embolden the enemy.  I’ve even heard that it was our fault for the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  They claim it was because of embargos placed on Japan that they Japanese felt the need to bomb Pearl.  Yes, we had embargos against Japan, there’s no denying that fact, but they were placed there because of increased aggression out of the Japanese mainland.

Furthermore, regarding the attacks on Pearl, please take a look at the words of FDR: “The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with the government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.”

We didn’t go to them with talks of peace, they came to us, and then, behind our backs attacked us.  Now, the Left, with their superior intellect, would tell us that it was all our fault.  They want nothing more than to denigrate all but the most Communist of societies, so for them, the atomic bombs dropped are more proof of the evil of America.

Let’s consider for a moment: We spent days giving warning to the Japanese that they bombs were coming, even going so far as to drop the famous “LeMay Bombing Leaflet” to give warning to the people of several cities that these “bombs have no eyes.  So, in accordance with America’s humanitarian policies, the American Air Force, which does not wish to injure innocent people, now gives you warning to evacuate the cities named and save your lives.”

Sure, the Left will probably take credit for this all the while blaming the bombing on the Right (though, it should be noted that Truman, along with FDR, were LIBERALS, not just Democrats…).  What the Left of today would rather have seen in 1945, was no atomic weapon and instead we send thousands, if not millions, of American soldiers to fight on the shores of Japan.

What they don’t realize is the honor of the Japanese people.  They would have fought until there was only one left standing, and that person would have died defending his home as well.  You see, the Left wants nothing more than the demoralization of their enemy.  They would send a million men to corner the Japanese, where we on the Right, would rather send a bomb and destroy the corner, thus allowing for a way out.

Sure, all of this sounds like one huge digression, but I assure you, it’s not.  The Left today is trying to do to the Republicans what they think should’ve been done to the Japanese, using the rules of the Chinese National Team: Humiliate our opponent, the rules be DAMNED!

I’m a firm believer that: “An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind”, as a Christian, I do not believe that it would be in the GOP’s best interest to resort to the despicable tactics of the Left, and I don’t think we need to, in order to win elections.  But, there is a time in every fight, in every war, in which one party must stand up, draw a line in the sand, and say “NO MORE!”, and that time is now.  If not now, when, if not us, who?

Using Darwin to Explain the Economy and Capitalism

Posted by darthkeller on October 29, 2009

Since I know a lot of Liberals look to Darwin almost as reverently as they do Obama, I thought this post should incorporate his greatest theory and explain how and why what the Democrats are doing can only be called “stupid”.

A lot of people believe that Darwin created the theory of Evolution.  This is incorrect.  He theorized “Natural Selection”.  It was the combined work of several geneticists, including Gregor Mendel, Hugo de Vries, WFR Weldon and RA Fisher, who took Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection and from that, along with Mendelian genetics, came up with “evolution” as we now know it.

So, then, what is Natural Selection? That’s very easy.  Let’s say we have two lions, each of them is 100 yards from a gazelle who is quietly grazing.  Both lions begin, at the same rate, to move towards the gazelle.  Now, it is important to note one difference in the lions, and this is the only difference between them, one lion is the tan color we see in all lions, the other is hot pink.  As they get closer to the gazelle, the gazelle begins to look around, sensing something is wrong.  Seeing the hot pink lion, he moves in the opposite direction, unknowingly towards the tan lion.  The tan lion is then able to kill and eat the gazelle.  Do this simple process again and again, and the hot pink lion starves, unable to pass on his hot pink genetics.

“Survival of the fittest”, is what this is called.  The lion that was most able to catch food is the lion that will survive… always.

Now, how does this apply to the economy and to capitalism?  Well, I’m going to tell you, right now.

What Darwin really stated was this: In nature, competition will always occur, and the “fittest” specie will always win.  This is exactly the same principal on which capitalism is built.  Greed…

To quote Michael Douglas:

The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed — for lack of a better word — is good.

Greed is right.

Greed works.

Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

Greed, in all of its forms — greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind.

And greed — you mark my words — will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA.

“Greed is EVIL!” Yeah yeah, you’ve had your turn to talk, now shut up! Where would we be without greed? Let me paint you a picture.
First, I wouldn’t be typing this message… Why not? Well, without greed Bill Gates and Steve Jobs wouldn’t have gone to war with each other, and we’d have no PC or Mac. In fact, the only computer we would have would be the size of a football field and be able to compute 1+1, most of the time. I wouldn’t be sitting in front of a TV playing on my computer, because there would be no need for laptops, because no one would want my business (this is called “greed”), therefore no need to create the thing.

Also, there would be no Palm, no Windows Mobile, no iPhone (NO!!!). In fact, we’d still be using the old gray “Army phone” that you see in 80’s movies (like the one I quoted above). The first cell phone I ever used was a bag phone. It couldn’t remember anything, if you could actually get a call out, consider it a miracle. Now, we have phones that can give us turn by turn directions! All because of greed.

I know, some of you are saying “Greed isn’t necessary, we’d still have computers, and operating systems, and other stuff.” Yeah… I can prove you wrong with one word: LINUX (pause to let that sink in)

Here’s a FREE OS. Let me say that again… FREE OS. You can install it on any PC you want, you can run it for free from now until forever! IF what you’re saying is right, it should be the #1 OS in the world. So, how many are there? Best estimate: 29 million. Windows 7 has just been released, and based on pre-release orders, they are estimating that they will sell 40 million copies by the end of 2009, and 177 million by 2010. That’s just Windows 7… That’s not counting all the users who will continue to use Vista or XP (the numbers would approach billions, I’m sure). And Apple? They just released Snow Leopard last month. “Sales, so far, have doubled that of Leopard in the same time period”. I couldn’t find actual numbers, but, again, they probably have a few more than 29 million.

You see, the competition that Microsoft and Apple are in, their GREED and desire for your money, have forced them to continually create a better product. In the animal world, competition is usually bad for the prey. With capitalism, and us being the “prey” (actually, it’s our wallets), competition is the greatest thing for us!

I remember my first computer: It was pre-Pentium (don’t know the specs, that was 20 years ago), it had 16k RAM, and a whopping 64 MB hard drive (ok, so, a “k” is 1/1,000,000 of a GB and a MB is 1/1,000 of a GB… just in case). The fact that i felt the need to explain that should tell you something, that the manufacturers are trying to get our business has forced them to create bigger and better products, so much so, that we don’t measure ANYTHING in terms of “k” anymore!

And what does all of this have to do with the economy? Simple: “Survival of the fittest”. We spent $700 billion to bail out banks which gave loans to people that might not be able to pay those loans back. When the time came for the borrower to being paying that money back, they couldn’t, and the banks were in fear of going under.

I agree that this would have been BAD in every way, but to simply give them money, without doing anything to make them more competitive, you just spray-painted the hot pink lion, hoping the gazelle won’t notice. Not only that, but we also gave $40 billion to GM and Chrysler. Why? Perhaps if one of the two of them failed, the others would’ve have learned a lesson (oh my God, that almost sounds like evolution….), and 25 years from now, when someone mentions doing something stupid (like allowing a union to fester uncontrolled), someone could’ve said, “Wait! We tried this, and it didn’t work out too well.” I know, that almost sounds crazy, to learn from another’s mistakes so that you don’t have to repeat them as well. That’s one of them “radical” ideas.

Quick side question: If GM or Chrysler would’ve failed, that would’ve made a lot of rich people very poor, I thought the Left wanted that. Wait, I remember, they actually want to MAKE them poor, through taxes and the such, they don’t actually want them to go broke some other way… Now I remember.

Now there’s rumors of a third bailout. When are we going to stand up and tell Congress, “No more”? When are we going to use the teachings of a Liberal saint against them, to show them that their ideas are not only wrong, but that they go against nature itself? They love nature, maybe if you prove to them that nature had it right all along, they’ll listen. My guess, I’ll be labeled a racist any day now and sent to a reeducation camp at uncle Hugo’s this winter (at least I’ll be warm).

Taking Michael Moore to Seminary

Posted by darthkeller on October 8, 2009

In case you missed Tuesday night’s Hannity, here’s a clip of the interview with Michael Moore, please pay attention to what Michael says at 4:05

I’ve grown so tired of watching Liberals try to quote and interpret the Bible, and watch them slant every piece of scripture to their own political agenda. Michael tries to make it sound like a rich person CAN NEVER get into heaven. But what does the Bible actually say? Let’s take a look at that piece of scripture:

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. – Matthew 19:24

Here’s what Matthew Henry said in his condensed commentary on the Bible:

Christ’s words show that it is hard for a rich man to be a good Christian, and to be saved. The way to heaven is a narrow way to all, and the gate that leads into it, a strait gate; particularly so to rich people. More duties are expected from them than from others, and more sins easily beset them. It is hard not to be charmed with a smiling world. Rich people have a great account to make up for their opportunities above others. It is utterly impossible for a man that sets his heart upon his riches, to get to heaven. Christ used an expression, denoting a difficulty altogether unconquerable by the power of man. Nothing less than the almighty grace of God will enable a rich man to get over this difficulty. Who then can be saved? If riches hinder rich people, are not pride and sinful lusts found in those not rich, and as dangerous to them?

So, it’s not so much that having money is the problem, it’s the fact that, with money, sins seem to avail themselves to the rich more so than those without money.

Let’s take a look at an example: Let’s say a man became a Christian when he was a young boy. Throughout his entire life he served in his church, in his community, he served God everyday of his life. At the age of 80 his wife comes home and tells him that she has just won the lottery, 100 gazillion dollars! In his excitement, he has a heart attack and dies. Now – At the time of his death, he’s RICH! So, does that disqualify everything else in his life? Some might argue, “Well, he really wasn’t rich, she was just holding the winning ticket, not the actual money.” Okay… Let’s say it was a year later, and he passed away quietly in his sleep. Does that forfeit heaven? I would say “No”.

Here’s another verse that Liberals LOVE to spout:

Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. – Luke 18:22

“See, there it is right there! You have to be poor to get to heaven! This is the proof for redistribution of wealth!” All right Libs, hold on one sec. Let’s take a look at what was REALLY going on here. You see, if you read the verses preceding verse 22, you’ll find a rich man asking Jesus what he must do to get to heaven. Jesus tells him to follow all the commandments, which the man, by his own admission, has done. Then Jesus tells him to sell everything and give away all his money. So, why did Jesus tell him that? Simple: Jesus wanted to use this man to prove the point that no matter how hard you try, there will always be something that you are not willing to give up in your attempt to work your way into heaven. It’s impossible. Still want to argue with me… Let’s take another verse from the Bible then:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9

There you go, the whole reason behind the rich man’s request and Christ’s answer: No matter what you do, it’ll never be enough, because there will always be that ONE THING that you will not be able to give up on your own

Let’s go back to Michael for just a moment. Here’s a weird question: If he’s so bent on the Bible being the infallible word of God, and the words of that “book” are to be used in everyday life situations, more than just a guide, but a guiding principle… How does he support a man who is so in favor of abortion?

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. – Jeremiah 1:5

Before you were two cells old, before you were a thought in your parent’s hearts, God knew you and had a plan for your life! That almost sounds like abortion is..………. MURDER! We can argue and bicker about trimesters and weeks, but the ultimate authority on life and death just said that He had a plan for you BEFORE YOU WERE FORMED! Therefore, by the time you begin to form, you’re way into the “living” stage in God’s eyes. But, Liberals won’t hear that. No, they will simply state that God’s plan for “fetus X” was to be aborted. I don’t presume to know the plans of God, and I think anyone who does is skating on VERY THIN ICE. I cannot believe that a God who wanted to create something as amazing as humans would then want to destroy that same thing without any reasoning behind it. Instead Liberals will try to say that the book of Jeremiah was largely prophetic, and all prophecy books are “symbol rich” (wonder if they get into heaven or not), so taking them at their word would not be the best thing to do. Ever get the feeling you’re playing a shell game when you argue with a Liberal? I’m starting to feel that way right now.

Or they will bring up all the murders in the Bible. I’m not going through all of them, but I have read enough to know, the few times that God told someone to kill someone else, there was always a reason. The rest of the murders were the murderer acting of his own accord. I’ll end that debate with that statement.

You see, for Liberals, quoting the Bible is just another way for them to pander to the crowd. “Hey, look at me, I’m a Christian because I can quote the Bible”. So what, the Bible says that even the Demons know the name of Jesus and they tremble before it. Using that logic, if I were to start quoting Anton Levey does that make me a Satanist? How about if I quote Karl Marx, does that make me a Marxist? No. It means I read a book, nothing more. All too often, when Liberals quote the Bible, they then mangle the interpretation so bad that the original meaning of the text is forever lost. Another great example of this: “Jesus believed in socialized medicine because he healed everyone!”

“Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.” – Luke 8:48

Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” – Luke 17:19

Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” – Luke 18:42

He listened to Paul as he was speaking. Paul looked directly at him, saw that he had faith to be healed and called out, “Stand up on your feet!” At that, the man jumped up and began to walk. – Acts 14:9-10

Now, I could be mistaken, but it looks as though there’s a lot of work being done on the part of the person being healed. They have to come to where Jesus (or Paul) are at, get their attention, display their faith, and then they get healed. So, if Liberals want to take the gospel and say that it has any commentary of healthcare, here’s what I think it says: IF YOU WANT HEALTHCARE, GO OUT AND GET IT YOURSELF! Jesus wasn’t handing out “healings”, He was taking the faith of the person and using that faith to heal them! You sure you still want to say that the Bible promotes socialism?

For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.” – 2 Thes 3:10

A slight change from the Liberal Bible… Maybe they should come over to my house and read mine.

So, Liberals, some advice… Don’t quote the Bible. When you do, you make yourself look goofier than you did before you quoted the Bible. Stick to something you know, like….

Okay, I got nothing….

Happy Birthday Red China

Posted by darthkeller on September 30, 2009

On this day, 60 years ago (a day that the Left is so excited to celebrate), under the leadership of Mao Zedong, the People’s Republic of China was born.

Let’s PARTY!

On second thought, let’s take a look at what the Chinese communists have accomplished in the last 60 years:

  • Restrictions on freedom of speech
  • Restrictions on advocacy of independence
  • Restrictions on where you can live
  • Strict apartheid
  • Murder

But hey, that’s what the Left wants in this country, right? They have, for years, tried to shut-out the conservatives of this country, made every effort to implement socialism, cordoning off parts of American cities where conservatives are not welcome and requesting that presidents, with whom they don’t agree, be killed.

Sounds eerily similar to me…

Then there’s the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 which left hundreds dead. After the death of pro-democracy and anti-corruption official Hu Yaobang, millions gathered for his memorial. During that memorial, disillusioned Chinese Communist Party members, Trotskyists (those who followed Leon Trotsky’s idea of socialism), and free market reformers seemed to join forces in a protest against the Chinese government. From all accounts, from May 15 though May 20, there were no incidents of violence, but on May 20th the Chinese government implemented martial law. Though they were held back, on June 1 they returned, and this time marched into the heart of Tiananmen square. The exact number of deaths has never been reported.

And how about Mao Zedong? Let’s look at some of his quotes.

In class society, everyone lives as a member of a particular class, and every kind of thinking, without exception, is stamped with the brand of a class.

– “On Practice” (July 1937), Selected Works, Vol. I, p. 296.

Wow! That sounds awesome! Like, once you’re born, either poor or rich, you’re stuck in that class! No chance of rising up the ladder! That’s pretty much the exact opposite of America! But hey, the Left wants SOCIALISM!

Our educational policy must enable everyone who receives an education to develop morally, intellectually and physically and become a worker with both socialist consciousness and culture.

– On the Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People (February 27, 1959), 1st pocket ed., p. 44.

Hmmm… How about some education with your indoctrination? That sounds great! Almost sounds like “The Story of Stuff” that was recently shown to our kids in public schools. Or, how about teachers forcing their kids to sing songs about Obama (their reasoning: It was Black History Month… Ever hear of George Washington Carver, Martin Luther King, Jr, Harriet Tubman? How about we study those people? And, by the way, “learning about” and “singing praises to” are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!) .

We could talk about the Hundred Flowers Campaign… A period from 1956 until 1957 when the Communist Party of China allowed open dissent against the government. The idea was to have intellectuals discuss the country’s problems in order to promote new arts and new cultural institutions. However, in July 1957, Mao changed his mind, stating that many of the letters had violated the idea of “healthy criticism”, and that they had reached a “harmful and uncontrollable” level. The final result of the Hundred Flowers Campaign: Persecution of intellectuals, students, artists and dissidents labeled “rightists”. Over 550,000 people were imprisoned, tortured, or killed.

As I read this, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Hillary Clinton proudly proclaiming in 2005: “We are Americans, We have the right to participate and debate any administration.” Follow that with the words of Nancy Pelosi: “Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American” in reaction to the town-hall protests

Then there was the Great Leap Forward, which was intended as an alternative model for economic growth, a period in which private food production was banned for a more communal system, and peasants were forced to work on massive infrastructure projects and the small-scale production of iron and steel. During this time, Mao and other party leaders ordered the implementation of a variety of unproven and unscientific new agricultural techniques by the new communes. This led to a 15% drop in grain production in 1959, and another 10% drop in 1960, with no recovery in 1961.

This drop in food is indirectly linked to the deaths of tens of millions of Chinese peasants, and thought to be the cause of the Great Chinese Famine. This program was so bad that the Party leadership forced Mao to end it a year earlier than planned

All in all, Mao’s policies have been attributed to the deaths of between 40 and 70 million people

So, while the Left are out partying like it’s 1949, I’ll do my part to ensure that this type of government never takes hold in the United States!

Headlines of the Day

Posted by darthkeller on September 28, 2009

So, perusing the Drudge Report, here are a sampling of the articles that I saw, mind you – I didn’t read ANY of these articles. I just perused the titles, nothing more.

  • Four Charged In Brutal Chicago Mob Beating…
  • Iran says advanced missiles can target any threat
  • Liberals seek health-care access for illegals
  • RASMUSSEN POLL: Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low; 41% Favor 56% Oppose…
  • MANDATORY IMMUNIZATIONS FOR 500,000 IN NY…
  • Kerry: ‘I don’t know what ‘cap and trade’ means’…
  • Michigan faces govt. shutdown…

So, with all this going on, what did Barry do today: Obama to lead ’16 Chicago bid with trip

Yes, that’s right! With OUR MONEY, “our” President decided now would be a great time to take a trip to Copenhagen. Why not? We’ve had a lot of problems with the Danes as of late!

No, Iran didn’t launch a missile today that could have hit Israel.

No, there wasn’t a proposal of ever expanding government today

What, NATO asked for help in Afghanistan? Of course Barry couldn’t know about that, he’s only met with General Stanley McChrystal “once in 70 days”

Hey, the good news: Now the NEA can start creating art for something that could possibly help our country, or at least Barry’s friends.

So, let me get this straight: Barry wants to bring the Olympic Games to Chicago… The home of Al Capone, Rod Blagojavich, Tony Rezko and Barrack Obama? What could possibly go wrong there?

I’VE GOT IT: A gang attacks the athletes from other countries in an attempt to give Americans the edge

This could be the start of a new Olympic sport! And don’t forget to watch the media’s 100 meter backpedal from all of it!

ACORN in violation of RICO Act?

Posted by darthkeller on September 15, 2009

Ok, so in case you’ve been under a rock for the past week, you think I’m talking about voter fraud… I’m not – And you should visit BigGovernment.com before you continue.

From Wikipedia

Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $250,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of “racketeering activity.” RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

So, what are those crimes one must commit in order to qualify for RICO? Here’s a list:

  • Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, extortion, arson, robbery, bribery, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act);
  • Any act of bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire, and several other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18);
  • Embezzlement of union funds;
  • Bankruptcy or securities fraud;
  • Drug trafficking;
  • Money laundering and related offenses;
  • Bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain);
  • Acts of terrorism.

Any of those look familiar?  Let’s take the three videos from BigGovernment:

Extortion – ACORN said they would help, but that the “pimp” and the “prostitute” would have to join ACORN.  Sounds like extortion to me.

Dealing in Obscene Matter – THEY ARE SETTING UP A BROTHEL!  HELLO!

Fraud – I would say ACORN’s help in defrauding the IRS in tax money would count….

Slavery – I could be wrong, but I could swear that the “prostitute” said the girls would give her all the money, which means they are working for nothing, the very definition of slavery

Money Laundering – This is the practice of gaining money illegally and then disguising it to look legit… Like gifts from family, or gifts to family, pretty sure I heard that to
Bringing in… aliens – That’s somewhat the crutch of these videos, brining in 13 underage El Salvadorian girls to work in this brothel, so this is a definite “check”

What’s the count there?  Six… Not bad, since only two of them are necessary for RICO.  Now, the question is this: Will the MSM find the same evidence that my 2 minutes of research on Google/Wikipedia turn up, or will they continue to overlook the obvious?

If history is any teacher, it will be up to us, those of “the mob” to continue to press this story until ACORN is gone.  Of course, I could be wrong, and if I am, please let me know.  I’d love to learn more about this.

NOTE: I would like to go on record and thank Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe! These are two brave, CRAZY, kids!  They deserve the respect and admiration of all those that love America!

Why I’m not Excited about the NFL on NBC

Posted by darthkeller on September 11, 2009

I should start this with full disclosure: Yes, I know that watching college football is better than watching the NFL, but I LOVE WATCHING FOOTBALL, even the NFL.

With that said, I couldn’t be more un-excited about the start of the NFL season tonight. Why? Simple: CHRIS COLLINSWORTH

Don’t remember Chrisy? Ah, here’s a refresher for you:

Quick aside: Kobe’s the man, so to all the “haters” out there – SDASU!

Ah, what an interview. I’m sure it was one of Chris’s best. I mean, he got to bash America, not just in front of Americans, IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE WORLD! Hey, I can only think of a few others that can claim that:

Congrats Chris! Some rare company there buddy!

When I heard that John Madden retired this spring, I was so sad. I loved the way he called games, the insight he brought to the booth. But replacing John with this jack-ass? Nothing but an insult to John Madden. Oh, and NBC – You might want to remember: NFL fans are some of the most patriotic, America-LOVING people in the world… No way this could backfire!

RIP Michael Jackson, and Media Objectivity

Posted by darthkeller on July 7, 2009

Like most people, since June 25th I’ve been watching the media circus that has become the passing of Michael Jackson.  However, unlike those in the media, I’ve not been watching because I’m interested in his life’s story… I’ve been watching because CHANNELS ARE NOT SHOWING ANYTHING BUT MICHAEL JACKSON!

I have two problems with people talking about Michael Jackson as much as they are:

1) This man was an alleged pedophile!  I don’t care that he was acquitted twice, he was engaging in behavior that was, nicely put, inappropriate.

I saw an interview with Michael, and he was asked about sharing his bed with children, and he said “It’s very loving. What’s wrong with sharing a love?”  You call that love!?  Possibly molesting children, that’s love!?  Let me tell you about love: When a child has a nightmare, goes down the hall, politely asks their mother/father about sleeping with them because the child is scared, then the parents put their arms over that child in an attempt to tell that child “Nothing will happen to you tonight”…THAT’S LOVE!  What Michael Jackson was doing was not love, it was criminal!

And yet, here’s the media, all of it, including Fox News, moving at break-neck speed to saint this man!  ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?  I don’t care that he was acquitted, I do not care!  This man possibly molested (at least) two kids, scarring them for life!

2) Even though you won’t hear about it, two soldiers were killed this July 4th: Pvt. Aaron Fairbairn and Pvt. Justin Casillas.  They were killed in Afghanistan by a truck bomb while watching their post.

Here are two Americans, both with their whole life ahead of them, both of them wanting to do one thing: serve their country!  What?  You didn’t hear about this?  That’s right, the MSM and Fox were busy trying to saint MJ.  Think about this: Almost everything that happened to Michael was his own doing (I’m excusing his time in the Jackson 5 since he was so young, everything else is on him).  These two soldiers simply wanted to serve their country, oh, and they didn’t break any laws of this country, morality, or human decency, either.

Where is the 24-hour coverage for these two HEROES!?  Where are the reporters interviewing family and friends, building a composite of their entire life for the purpose of showing it again and again on every station on my TV?  No, they’d rather have their pedophile to worship.

To say that this is a travesty is an understatement.  Perhaps, and hopefully soon, the MSM will realize what Michael Jackson was: A decent entertainer with a VERY sordid past who should be looked at as nothing more than a decent entertainer.  Perhaps Rep Peter King has it right, and Michael really was a “low-life” and a “pervert”… That’s just my opinion.
