My Rule for Life

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

45 Pages of Hooey!

Those of you who know me and follow Conservative Outrage know I usually wind up on the right side of Sean Hannity and the rest. Key word here is usually! I got home in time last night to catch Searn’s show on FOX. I was disappointed in Sean’s glowing response to the “Promise to America. Here is the reason why!

They just don’t get it! They just don’t get it!! The tried and true old style Republicans. What a bunch of hooey! Forty-five pages what can best be summed up at complacency, soft on issues, long rhetoric, and just plain lack of ……well…….guts!

There is no solid stance against abortion, gay marriage, border control, or gun rights. There is no solid stand for smaller government, less spending or long term tax reform. It is a gutless 45 pages of more of the same with just more lipstick on the pig. IMHO of course.

You don’t need forty-five pages to say Cut spending NOW! Repeal Obamacare NOW! secure the borders NOW! Do not fund ABORTION in any way shape, matter or form, EVER! Leave my guns alone, FOREVER, Govern by the Constitution, FOREVER! Listen to the people NOW!

Someone please sum that up for me. I know it didn’t take 45 pages of BS.

And…….if you think I am the only one go to Red Read that post and the 200+ comments. Red

God please help America, ‘cause the politicians aren’t!

Don't tempt me! How cold does it get there in January anyway?

I agree with the BS part, if not the stances that you take.

I think that eventually there will need to be a paring of government to make it Smarter, but taking a meat cleaver to it is stupid.

Also, I think that taking the Pentagon, Homeland Security, building a new missile system, and giving the wealthiest Americans special treatment, hardly seems responsible to me.

I tend to be a bit more moderate than some liberals on some social issues, but I can't say I agree with any of your stances. And by the way no one likes abortion, but the way to cut down on it is through an adult approach to it, not hiding your head in the sand.

Condivido pienamente il suo punto di vista. Mi piace questa idea, sono pienamente d'accordo con te.
Assolutamente d'accordo con lei. Credo che questo sia un concetto molto diverso. Pienamente d'accordo con lei.

Whoa! Jeff, FP,

You're up early on a Sunday morning!
I have to comment in reverse. I do not ever recall or me, myself, I or anyone saying we would sticking your head in the sand would stop abortion. Part of the problem is many, many abortions are performed on young girls, NOT ADULTS! Abortion is a single issue for me. Those babies didn't ask to be
created The stopping of one beating babies heart is MURDER. Plain and simple. What is you "adult" approach?

Oh please all ready with the "richest Americans". Go to your local ghetto and see how many
families those business owners are going to hire and how many new businesses they are going to start in the next two years? Bet you the number is zippo!

Ask Stephen Jobs how many new hires he is going to have, or Warren Buffet, or even Bill Clinton with his company. What's wrong with reducing the federal budget to the 2008 levels anyway?

I will always support the military,they keep us safe. I won't support the gross mis-management of tax payers $$$ by the military or the Feds.

Regarding the missile systems, well, defensive purposes are fine by me. If I remember we still have enough offensive missiles to Mother Earth up about a kazillion times. So we probably agree on point there.

I'm not really sure what you mean about the meat cleaver, a few politicians here and a few there seems very responsible to me. It gives other politicans a chance to observe where the people want to go.

Did you call me stupid? Just wondering.

Have a great week at work and thanks for stopping by.

Is that spanish spam?

Pops, that is why I don't hold out any more hope even if we do take control of both Houses of Congress, because Obama will remain in office, his agenda will go on business as usual and nothing will change, at least not for the better.

Jeff-for-progress said...

Hi Pops,

No I wasn't calling you stupid, the reference was to the freeze of all programs except for the Pentagon and Homeland Security stupid. And that is taking a meat cleaver to the budget. Also, I hold professional politicians, who should know better, about how government works to a higher standard than other folks.


ABNPOPPA said...

MRG. Now hang in there we may get a start in November. Admiral Perry, I have not begun to fight!


Don't you think we need a meat cleaver with the budget deficent we are running now? I don't really care who started it, name calling won't help.

PS. I knew you weren't calling me stupid. You're just a Consevative looking for a way out of the liberal box you're in.


Enjoy life, it's way to short, 'specially when you are my age.

Hi Pops,

Conservative... I don't think so. But, as the cowboys said in the old western movie The Rounders with Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford:

"If it makes you happy, then it tickles me pink."

Have a Good Day.


ABNPOPPA said...

If you are uncomfortable with Conservative how about Conservativly Democratic. I used to call myself the most liberal Republican you will ever meet. Now I call myself a Constitutional Conservative.

Pink is good. It's the color of Ohio drivers licenses this year. Oh what an embarassement for a macho man like me.!!! LOL

Have a great day and a better tomorrow.


Lutheran Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.
