Why I like Country Music

Compare and contrast. Italics mine.

"American Idiot" - Green Day.
Don't want to be an American idiot.
Don't want a nation under the new media.
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind f*** America.
Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
Well that's enough to argue.
Well maybe I'm the faggot America.
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda.
And sing along in the age of paranoia.
Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
Well that's enough to argue.
Don't want to be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information age of hysteria.
It's going out to idiot America.
Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
Well that's enough to argue
Well, for hating America so much they sure are getting rich off of it.

"The Last Fallen Hero" - Charlie Daniels.
Oh, the cowards came by morning and attacked without a warning
Leaving flames and death and chaos in our streets
In the middle of this fiery hell brave heroes fell
In the skies of Pennsylvania on a plane bound for destruction
With the devil and his angels at the wheel
They never reached their target on the ground
Brave heroes brought it down

This is a righteous cause so without doubt or pause
I will do what my country asks of me
Make any sacrifice
We'll pay whatever price
So the children of tomorrow can be free
Lead on red, white and blue
And we will follow you until we win the final victory
God help us do our best we will not slack or rest
Till the last fallen hero rests in peace

Now the winds of war are blowing and there's no way of knowing
Where this bloody path we're traveling will lead
We must follow till the end
Or face it all again
And make no mistake about it, write it, preach it, talk it, shout it
Across the mountains and the deserts and the seas
The blood of innocence and shame
Will not be shed in vain

This is a righteous cause so without doubt or pause
I will do what my country asks of me
Make any sacrifice
We'll pay whatever price
So the children of tomorrow can be free
Lead on red, white and blue
And we will follow you until we win the final victory
God help us do our best we will not slack or rest
Till the last fallen hero rests in peace

God help us do our best we will not slack nor rest
Till the last fallen hero rests in peace

Enough said.

Blonde Jokes.

These jokes are in honor of my sisters.

Did you hear about the blonde that was so dumb that;

She thought a quarterback was a refund.
She thought General Motors was in the army.
She thought Meow Mix was a CD for cats.
She thought Boyz II Men was a day care center.
At the bottom of an application where it says "Sign here:" she wrote"Sagittarius."
She took the ruler to bed to see how long she slept.
She sent a fax with a stamp on it.
Under "education" on her job application, she put "Hooked On Phonics."
She tripped over a cordless phone.
She spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."
She told me to meet her at the corner of "WALK" and "DON'T WALK."
She tried to put M&M's in alphabetical order.
She studied for a blood test.
She sold the car for gas money.
When she missed bus #44 she took bus #22 twice instead.
When she went to the airport and saw a sign that said, "Airport Left,"she turned around and went home.
When she heard that 90% of all crimes occur around the home, she moved.
She thought if she spoke her mind, she'd be speechless.
She thought that she could not use her AM radio in the evening.
She had a shirt that said "TGIF," which she thought stood for "This Goes In Front."
She thinks Taco Bell is the Mexican phone company.

Would this fly?

Here's an imagined speech from Mayor John Smith of Whiteville.

"Smith promised that Whiteville will be a 'vanilla' city again. 'This
city will be a majority European-American city. It's the way God wants it
to be. You can't have Whiteville no other way. It wouldn't be Whiteville.' He
also said: 'Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane
after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country.'"


Could he get away with this? Such horrible grammer, such raving race-mongering? But Mayor Ray Nagin did. Just substitute Nagin for Smith, New Orleans for Whiteville, African-American for European-American, and oh, yeah; chocolate for vanilla and you'd have this speech made yesterday by Nagin. How did this doofus ever get elected?

Delaying the inevitable

(ht: Eye of The Storm)
Dems May Delay Next Week's Alito Vote
Despite Specter stressing the importance of giving Alito an up-or-down vote and
making sure the nomination is sent to the full Senate for consideration,
Democrats may try to delay the committee vote."A number of our members are going
to be home for Martin Luther King events this weekend, will not be back on time
on Tuesday and so they will exercise their rights" to delay the vote, said the
committee's ranking Democrat, Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont.


The Democrats are just trying to delay the Confirmation without actually using a filibuster so the Conservatives can't use the nuclear option. Everybody can see that this is just gearin' up for what they're planning to do. It should be obvious this is just a waste of our time.

What media bias?

Major terror plot against US ignored by US media
The mainstream U.S. media outlets have failed to report a major terrorist plot
against the U.S. - because it would tend to support President Bush's use of NSA
domestic surveillance, according to media watchdog groups.
News of a planned
attack masterminded by three Algerians operating out of Italy was widely
reported outside the U.S., but went virtually unreported in the American
media.
Italian authorities recently announced that they had used wiretaps to
uncover the conspiracy to conduct a series of major attacks inside the
U.S.
Italian Interior Minister Giuseppe Pisanu said the planned attacks would
have targeted stadiums, ships and railway stations, and the terrorists' goal, he
said, was to exceed the devastation caused by 9/11.


The media would be glad to report on the potential bad things that would happen from wiretapping, but they completely ignored a major terrorist plot getting stopped by wiretapping. No, the media's not biased at all, are they?

The confirmation hearings

The confirmation hearings started today with opening statements by the Senators. What do you think about it? I think it's just a bunch of old people blabbering on worthlessly.
Just my opinion from a young person's perspective.
To some people this might seem interesting, but I think to most people it will seem like what I said.
During the last hearings, it seemed like they were just making a speech, instead of asking a question. I think this will be, too.

The NCAA Championship.

Who do you think will win the BCS Championship? I think it'll go into overtime, but I don't know who'll win.

Torture

There has been a lot of worthless bloviating in Liberal circles about so-called "torture" at Club Gitmo, (ooooh....) secret CIA prisons, etc. Let me start by saying I'm against torture. Real torture. As in cutting people's fingers off, ripping off their fingernails, ripping off their skin etc. But I just can't accept that loud rap music, pouring water over someone's face(OH MY GOSH! With a hood on???) calling them a "queer", and calling their sisters and mothers "sluts", is really torture.
In fact, this hypervintilating, incredibly solemn "investigative" article by ABC News, is just laughable. It's so laughable, I am posted it just as it appeared.
Here are the techniqes their "secret sources" described. (Bold theirs, italics mine.)

1. The Attention Grab: The interrogator forcefully grabs the shirt front of the prisoner and shakes him.(My little brother Jonathan does this to me every day...)

2. Attention Slap: An open-handed slap aimed at causing pain and triggering fear.(And Rebekah does this...)

3. The Belly Slap: A hard open-handed slap to the stomach. The aim is to cause pain, but not internal injury. Doctors consulted advised against using a punch, which could cause lasting internal damage.(Yeah, and a suicide bombing might cause lasting internal damage, too, but that's just my opinion.)

4. Long Time Standing: This technique is described as among the most effective. Prisoners are forced to stand, handcuffed and with their feet shackled to an eye bolt in the floor for more than 40 hours. Exhaustion and sleep deprivation are effective in yielding confessions. (Haven't they ever been to the Post Office?)

5. The Cold Cell: The prisoner is left to stand naked in a cell kept near 50 degrees. Throughout the time in the cell the prisoner is doused with cold water.(Gosh, Doctors have been using this for years. Now the real question is do they use the "little red rubber hammer" torture technique?)

6. Water Boarding: The prisoner is bound to an inclined board, feet raised and head slightly below the feet. Cellophane is wrapped over the prisoner's face and water is poured over him. Unavoidably, the gag reflex kicks in and a terrifying fear of drowning leads to almost instant pleas to bring the treatment to a halt.
(Momeeeee! They're having a breath holding contest! It's torture!)

Super Bowl Picks

Hi, hope everybody likes my new blog. This blog will be about Conservative politics, sports, gun rights, and whatever else I feel like blogging about.

So, who do you think will win the Super Bowl? I think Indianapolis will.
