Berkeley vs Marine Corps

Unless you have not had access to the web for the past couple of weeks, you are aware of the idiots in Berkley, CA. Zombietime sums it up very well. There is hope that Senator Jim DeMint's Semper Fi Act will gain ground. I have written my Senators and Representatives to try to enlist their support of the bill. I urge you to do so, as well.

This is the body of what I sent to the Congressmen:

Dear ,

Today, February 6, 2008, Senators James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), Saxby Chambliss (R-Georgia), Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-Oklahoma), John Cornyn (R-Texas), and David Vitter (R-Louisiana) introduced the Semper Fi Act of 2008.

You have stated that you are in support of our troops and their mission. Please remember the oath that each member of the military took; “I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” Not much different from the Presidential oath; “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (i.e The oath for the President is not just for the presidency since the president was already elected. It is the oath for the Commander In Chief to protect and defend!)

Please consider crossing political lines regarding the Semper Fi Act.

The bill would rescind over $2 million in hidden earmarks for Berkeley, California in the 2008 Omnibus Appropriations bill, and transfer the funds to the Marine Corps.

One earmark provides $243,000 in taxpayer dollars for the organization Chez Panisse to create gourmet organic school lunches in the Berkeley School District. Chez Panisse is dedicated to “environmental harmony” and their menu features “Comté cheese soufflé with mâche salad,” “Meyer lemon éclairs with huckleberry coulis,” and “Chicory salad with creamy anchovy vinaigrette and olive toast.”

Congressman John Campbell (R-California) is introducing a companion bill in the House of Representatives.

This is a result of the City Council of Berkeley voted to oust Marine Corps recruiters from their downtown office, saying the Marines were “uninvited and unwelcome intruders.” Berkeley officials also voted to give the radical protest group Code Pink space outside the recruitment office and urged them to “impede, passively or actively” the work of Marine Corps recruiters.

Senator Inhofe stated: “Unfortunately, those on the Berkeley city council do not seem to understand the sacrifice of the brave men and women of the United States Marine Corps. By interfering with military recruiting, the city of Berkeley is hampering our ability to protect this nation. While the city of Berkeley and the protesters are free to say whatever they like, free speech is not a protection from consequence.”

I strongly urge you to give support to this proposal. Our military deserves respect, not derision.


Take a stand against the aging hippies (Frank J knows what to do to hippies - "Punch them in the face!") and the result of their
drug-damaged chromosomal offspring. Contact your congressional representatives. Send a letter of support, give a friendly phone call to the recruiting office, talk about hippies and commies, the weather, or whatever. I'm sure a supportive voice would mean a lot when you have moonbats at your doors and windows, graffiti on the sidewalk, and a carnival of idiots stomping on your turf.

John McCain

In 2004, McCain was considering running on a presidential ticket with John Kerry.

$5 Million Dollars of Russian Mob Money?

Maybe, maybe not, but listen to this, then make up your own mind:

Hillary "loans" her campaign $5 million. She claims that her staff has been working without pay and her campaign is running low on funds. Okay, this seems fairly reasonable to me. I mean, her rival, Mr. Obama, is much more charismatic (read this as he is at least human), so this, combined with his recent successes in both polls and primaries is likely raking in way more funds than she.

This falls a suspiciously short period of time since her husband, Slick Willy's, foundation has finally admitted to receiving over 131 million dollars from Frank Giustra, a Canadian global entrepreneur, who accompanied him to the former Soviet state of Kazakhstan, where he and Bill had been schmoozing with Kazakh strongman, Nursultan Abishyevic Nazarbayev. Nazarbayev's election is still under scrutiny by the OSCE, and did not meet up with international standards.

If the Clintons in bed with a former First Secretary of the Kazakh Communist Party, and noted kleptocrat isn't scary enough, all of this is about Uranium. Yep. Uranium. Turns out the backwater known as Kazakhstan is the holder of the world's second largest reserves of Uranium.

So, first they are hanging out with wanted felons like Hsu, and now corrupt former Russian politicians and back-door nuclear deals. Great.

The Apple Does Not Fall Far From the Tree...

Here, a local Connecticut station, reports that Chelsea Clinton, may have violated polling laws that require candidates or their representatives to maintain a distance of 75 feet betwixt themselves and a polling place to prevent inappropriately influencing voters.

Would this really surprise anyone? I mean, with the family past that has Chinese dishwashers donating $1,000, Norman "I'm on the lamb" Hsu, and a philandering, purgerer for a father, it would seem that this girl is set up for shady future.

Which, of course, means we'll see her running for office soon...

Super Tuesday is Nigh...

And as a political blogger, albeit an amateur one, I receive numerous requests to support various political causes. Out of respect for you, my readers, and my literary integrity (ROFL) I try not to cram any of the propaganda I am sent from various candidates down your throats.

I want to share this with you, however, that I got today from the campaign of Senator McCain:

With many more Republican senators up for re-election than Democrats, the nomination of Mr. Romney could easily lead to a Goldwater-like debacle, in which the GOP loses not only the White House but also its ability in practice to filibuster in the Senate. Thus, even if we believed that Mr. Romney's judicial appointments were likely to be better than Mr. McCain's -- and we are not persuaded of that -- we would find ourselves hard-pressed to support his candidacy, given that he is so much less likely to make any appointments at all.

In this excerpt of a 3 page email, it seems that the good Senator, with whom I do not always see eye-to-eye, trying to scare me into supporting him.

Here is some more:
Accordingly, for judicial conservatives electability must be a paramount consideration. By all accounts, Mr. McCain is more electable than Mr. Romney. He runs ahead or even with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in the national polls, and actually leads the Democratic candidates in key swing states like Wisconsin. Mr. Romney trails well behind both Democratic candidates by double digits. The fundamental dynamic of this race points in Mr. McCain's way as well. He appeals to independents, while Mr. Romney's support is largely confined to Republicans.

Here, it would seem that the reason I should support Senator McCain is that he is more electable than Mr. Romney. Now, everyone wants to back a winner, but I have to admit that I need to support the individual whom I think will do the best job as President, not just who I think will win. President of The United States of America is an office that gives the holder dominance over the free world--its not some hopped up high school popularity contest.

Now, to his credit, Senator McCain does not try to tell me that he is my candidate based simply being a Christian. I'm not electing a National Pastor, I'm voting for leader of western civilization. Some of his "creeping me out" rhetoric is here:
[Some of my opponents] do not want to change the Constitution, but I believe it’s a lot easier to change the constitution than it would be to change the word of the living God, and that’s what we need to do is to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards,” Huckabee said, referring to the need for a constitutional human life amendment and an amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

I kinda like the Constitution the way it is thanks.

My horse (Senator Thompson) is already out of the race. I don't really like any of the current Republican candidates. Particularly not Ron Paul. Particularly not Ron Paul:
Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the `criminal justice system,' I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal

People still think this way?

Anyhow, you guys still haven't told me why I shouldn't vote for Romney.
