I've moved to a new site! 

I've moved to a site with my own domain name. http://www.everythingiknowiswrong.com. I'll keep this site for a while so that the posts you linked to will still work. I'll try to e-mail all of the sites on my blogrolls and let them know about the change. If you have blogrolled me please change your links when you get a chance. I have moved all of my blogrolls and links to the new site.

I'm going to stop posting at this site for the most part. All of the posts have been transferred to the new site. Please visit soon and let me know what you think.

This blogspot service at bolgger.com has been very good to me. It's a great way to get started with a free blog. Try it out.

Fess Up. 

I keep hearing Democrats flinging unsubstantiated charges that George Bush was A.W.O.L thirty years ago. They seem to be saying by this that our armed forces would never follow such a man in a serious military action like, for example, overthrowing an evil regime and freeing an entire population in Afghanistan. They are definitely saying the armed forces would never follow Bush in something so daunting and complex as removing a militarily powerful dictator like Saddam Hussein and his supremely corrupt regime and then, under his leadership, act as an exemplary police force while rebuilding the country of Iraq.

I keep hearing about "A.W.O.L George" but I don't hear anything from the Democrats about how they would prosecute the war on terror. Would there be a war on terror? What things would they do differently? What things would they do the same? Is there anything about the war on terror that they think has gone well? What kinds of things would they have to go to the U.N. about. Would they be able to stand up and make the decision to proceed without the U.N.'s approval if the time came. Are there any circumstances which would tell them that the time had come? What are they? If they tell North Korea that they must give up their nuclear weapons or they will face dire consequences, will they believe them? Why?

I keep hearing about how George, the "smirk monkey," is too stupid to manage anything as complicated as American foreign policy. Certainly no regime as entrenched in self-serving corruption as deeply as Libya would give up their weapons of mass destruction because of his steadfast forign policy. Bush would definitely not be able to build one of the largest collations in history to attack a Middle Eastern nation. He is definitely too stupid to turn the economy around after the Clinton/Gore recession. Isn't it cute that he thinks fair and even tax cuts, across the board for all taxpayers, and targeted tax incentives for business could spur the economy?

I keep hearing about dumb George and his dumb ideas but I don't hear anything from the Democrats about how they would spur the economy. I don't hear them telling us how they would have talked Libya out of their weapons without the real and credible threat of consequences. I hear them saying that stupid George's stupid tax cuts were BAD and MUST BE REPEALED, but I don't really think even they believe that.

What I want to know is what do they believe? What will they do? I'm tired of hearing the same old junk they've been pushing since Al Gore's campaign. I don't think anyone outside of the Democratic faithful really buys it anyway. It's time to for them to stop peddling lies and fess up. It's time for them to tell us what they're going to do.

Wictory Wednesday 

Everyone realizes how important this election cycle is for our nation's security and prosperity. We also realize that there are really only two viable parties in the race. No matter who you are, or what you believe in, neither of the parties candidates will be a perfect match for you. This does not give you leave to sit this one out. You must vote for the candidate that will steer the country in the direction that is most like (not exactly like, for that is unlikely ever to happen) the direction that you would choose.

For me that choice is an easy one. Though George Bush is not as frugal with my money as I would have in an ideal world, I have seen, very concretely, the good that his tax policies have done for the business where I work. This has translated into better working conditions for me, and new jobs being created here after the Clinton-Gore recession was broken. Mr. Bush's prosecution of the war on terror is all I could hope it would be. Though it is in fact a war, and war is hell, it has been executed with concern for bystanders and with an eye on creating stable allies in the Middle East in the future, not enemies.

If you're a blogger, you can join Wictory Wednesday simply by putting up a post like this every Wednesday, asking your readers to volunteer and/or donate to the president's re-election campaign. E-mail Polipundit so that he can add you to the Wictory Wednesday blogroll, which will be part of the Wictory Wednesday post on all participating blogs.

Come On... What Do You Really Think? 

Debbiej at democrats give conservatives indigestion tells it like it is. Her straight-forward approach is really refreshing after all the beating around the bush.

Would you like some surrender-monkey cheese with that whine?
I'm fed up with all the jello-spined, snotty, power hungry, more taxes, less freedom, less military, less security, anti-Democracy, Pro-communist, Pro-Affirmative Action, Anti-Get off your ass and live your own life, Pro-Welfare, Anti-Get off your ass and get a job, French/German/UN ass kissing, terrorist ass kissing, "Let's drag this country into the sewer", "9/11 needs to be forgotten", "Bush lied", "Bush is Hitler", "Bush is evil", bottom feeding, scum sucking, FREAKING LIBERAL MORONS!!!!!!!!

Face it folks. The Left is out to send this country into the depths of hell if we do not do something. For all you "conservatives" who have been whining about Bush acting too much like a democrat, you know, the ones that are spewing the "I'm not going to vote mantra".

She also has this ... encouragement... for fence-sitters:
Just because you don't agree with the President on all the issues does not mean you should just toss this election in the trashcan.

If AlGore had been in the White House on 9/11 can you possibly conceive what condition this country would be in now??? No security. The UN would be running this country and the military. Your taxes would have been raised. Our financial markets would not have been able to recover and the Clinton RECESSION that was already there would now be a DEPRESSION. Our Military would have already been depleted and cut back so far they wouldn't be able to guard a dog house much less our freedom. There would be NO Homeland Security. The French and the Germans would be the ones we ran to for advice. "Let's play Kissy Kissy Nice Nice with all the Terrorists because we are such an evil country and we made them hate us, so we have to be nice to them and let them bomb us until they feel better."

Debiej has more to say, read the whole thing (there is some strong language).

What does John Kerry really believe in? 

BitsBlog posts analysis of this article on FrontPageMagazine.com. The article details some of Theresa Heinz Kerry's charitable contributions as a window into what issues are really near and dear to the Kerry's hearts.
The Tides Foundation is a major source of revenue for some of the most extreme groups on the Left. Tides allows donors to anonymously contribute money to a host of causes; the donor simply makes the check out to Tides and instructs the Foundation where to forward the money. Tides does so, for a nominal fee. Drummond Pike told The Chronicle of Philanthropy, “Anonymity is very important to most of the people we work with.” That becomes understandable when one views the list of Tides grant recipients. And who are the beneficiaries of this money?

Here is the tip of the iceberg:
Tides established the Iraq Peace Fund and the Peace Strategies Fund to fund the antiwar movement. These projects fueled such hysterical protest organizations as MoveOn.org, the website that recently featured two separate commercials portraying George W. Bush as Adolf Hitler. [emphasis mine]

According to FrontPage:
Teresa Heinz Kerry has financed the secretive Tides Foundation to the tune of more than $4 million over the years. The Tides Foundation, a “charity” established in 1976 by antiwar leftist activist Drummond Pike, distributes millions of dollars in grants every year to political organizations advocating far-Left causes. The Tides Foundation and its closely allied Tides Center, which was spun off from the Foundation in 1996 but run by Drummond Pike, distributed nearly $66 million in grants in 2002 alone. In all, Tides has distributed more than $300 million for the Left.

Read the article (and check out BitsBlog's analysis) to find out just how many organizations you love to hate are bankrolled by Heinz Kerry. You'll be amazed at just how many there are.

Oh Captain, My Captain. 

Captain's Quarters has a great new design and a powerful new hosting site. As a sailor and fan of Patrick O'Brian's series about Jack Aubrey and the English navy I've got to say I LOVE Captain Ed's new look! Now Captain's Quarters is not only one of the best all around blogs in the 'sphere, he's got pictures of sailing ships, too.

As if he doesn't have enough traffic already, I think he might be ramping up for an expected increase in his readership due to his new radio show. Looking good so far.

Don't forget to change your links and check out his new site.
