An interesting question or two

American and Proud points to a story that raises two key questions.

 The tea party is racist because we don’t like the Obama-Pelosi-Reid triad of DOOM…But black folks 91% are voting for Obama. Who’s the racist again?

Ominous new Gallup findings for Democrats: Blacks still love Obama, others not so much

The good news for President Obama is his popular support among blacks is holding steady at 91%.

The bad news is no other group of potential voters likes him that much.

In fact, 29 days before his first midterm elections, the Democrat’s approval ratings remain mired below 50%.

The first question is why the media plays their typical double standard Card on this. I think we all are, by now, painfully aware that the media WANTS racism to be a bigger issue than it is, but only CERTAIN racism. The media likes to pretend that America is still in the 1950’s racially, and they have a long history of spinning and yes, FABRICATING, news to try to make us all buy into their fantasy.

The second question is why do so many Blacks so fiercely identify themselves by their skin color? Well, sadly, that mentality has been drilled into their heads for decades now. Democrats, and groups, like the NAACP, that NEED Blacks to identify themselves as ONLY racial group have done a grave disservice to Black Americans by convincing them that EVERYTHING about them centers on their skin color.

Blacks are told that their color determines how they should vote, how they should stand on political issues, and how they should view America. Blacks have been conditioned to feel ashamed if they dare question the Liberal ideology. Those that do dare step off the Plantation of Liberal Ideology are ostracized as Uncle Toms, House Niggers, Oreos, or are told they are not really Black, or that they are traitors to their race. How shameful and despicable that Liberals love power more than morals and will do and say anything to keep Blacks locked into voting Democrat.

Enthusiasm Gap

From our good friends at Washington Rebel:

When a Free Lunch Just Ain’t Enough.

Thousands” of collectivists rallied in DC in vociferous support of whatever…wait, I bet they were against “hate.”  Do we need to read the story to know that?  But Big Labor goon, er, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said it best:

AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka urged participants, including his union’s members, to band together.

“There is nothing, and I mean nothing, we can’t do when we stand side by side, shoulder to shoulder,” Trumka said. “We will stand together. And we will win together. And we won’t let anyone — and I mean anyone — stand in our way.”

Looks like there weren’t a hell of a lot of shoulders to stand next to, Richie.  And me and about 50 million friends are standing in your way.  Better offer the collectivists $50 to show up next time, ’cause TANSTAAFL.

ADDED:  I almost forgot to point out this blast from Virgil Caine, also at Washington Rebel.  Pathetic:

These aren’t Americans. They are hollow caricatures of men. How glorious not to be amongst them. Heads held low, grubby little hands out, shoulders rounded…..pitiful little creatures.

Nothing to add.

6 reasons for not blogging more

I’m convinced that the greatest destroyer of conservative blogs is a combination of some or all of the following. See if you agree, and if  you can add some more reasons. 

1. I’m too busy.  We all can relate. ’nuff said. That’s why I’ve tried to get a multitude of writers here. One can’t do it alone. Even several can’t, unless you do this full-time and have a prolific side-kick like Smitty

2. It’s already been done.  This is a big one for me. There are many articles that are important, interesting and timely.  But they’ve already been done.  So I just assume that our readers here read the same sites that I read and I don’t mention the articles. Or even link to them.  How hard is it to just throw down a sentence or two and try to get readers here to go read a really great post that just happened to be written by some other blogger?  Here’s a great example.  This is a pet peeve of mine. I’ve often said a vote for that “Blue Dog” Democrat is a vote for Pelosi and Reid and Obama.  And this post just proves it

3.  The topic is not important enough.  Hey, every damn post must be an important, life altering, behavior changing, epic post or it isn’t worth posting, right?  Ha.  I can’t tell you how often I’ve spent hours on a blog post and nobody cared.  Or how often I’ve thrown out a post in mere minutes, in my usual half-assed manner, and it has gotten (what I thought was) an inordinate amount of interest.  You. Just. Never. Know.  Write it down and post it. 

4.  Nobody will read it.  This is a huge de-motivator for me.  They just come here for the Rule 5 pictures.  We are like Playboy, but nobody has to pretend that they are here for the articles.  [A little gratuitous hot babe picture, while we are on the topic...] Write it down any way.

5. Some liberal, somewhere, might get offended.  Oh, for Christ’s sake, grow a pair. Sure, you might not be able to run for political office if you say that. But so what? You weren’t running anyway. (Liar, you were not.)  Just say it. Chances are that millions out there agree with you. We conservatives are in the majority–it’s those candy-assed liberals who are so vocal that only make us think that nobody else agrees with us.  Say it! You can always apologize later.

6.  Lack of discipline.  Go to Linkiest and study how John Hawkins does it. Every day, rain or shine, come hell or high water, John has new links up for his readers.  (Except for week ends, and I’ve already bitched about that elsewhere.)  If he has to go on vacation, he gets a bud to fill in for him.  Readers have come to expect such Excellence, and they are rewarding him with ever-increasing blog stats.  Ditto Doug Ross at Director Blue and Daley Gator. Just “get ‘er done,” then you can go on to your real life. Your readers depend on you.

7. I’m embarrassed that my stuff isn’t as good as Bob Belvedere’s, or as thoughtful as Citizen Tom’s or The Classic Liberal’s,  I’m no Ace of Spades or Allahpundit, etc., blah blah blah.  Write it anyway, we’ll decide what is and isn’t worth reading.  You never know. If you self-censor yourself, you could be depriving us of some really important idea.

Is the NFL just WWF with pads?

Somebody, I can’t remember, put the bug in my ear just before Sunday’s 1:00 a.m. kick off.  The poster (can’t remember where I read it) said something to the effect that the NFL games are scripted.

As I watched my beloved Detroit Lions fight valiantly against the much more talented Packers, it dawned on me.  He was right.  I come to this conclusion with much trepidation. I’m a hard-core NFL fan. I don’t want to believe it. But come on, if you are a regular gambler on the NFL, or even just a big fan, you know I’m right.  It just takes me awhile.

I remember as a kid watching the WWF (“Flying Fred Curry” with his “flying drop kicks” and “The Sheik” with his “Sleeper hold” will surely date me) and swearing that they fights were real.  Look, that guy is really bleeding! You can’t tell me that it is fake!  I actually remember having that thought, about the same time that I was trying to convince myself that Santa Claus was real, and that the toy boxes for the toys that Santa brought me were just boxes that he left in the garage after assembling my new gifts. 

The Lions versus Packers game was so scripted. Oh, look, the Pack went out to a 21 – 7 lead. They are tearing up Detroit’s lousy secondary, just as everybody knew that they would.  Ho ho ho! Looky here, the Lions are trying a comeback.  Isn’t that cute!  No, wait, here are the Lions committing turnover after turnover, just like we knew that they would.  Isn’t this cute? The refs let Calvin Johnson keep a touchdown this week!  Hey, it is six minutes to go in the game and all the Lions need is a field goal to go ahead.  The little kid in me starts hoping against hope for our first victory in Green Bay since before Farve was drafted. I’m not shitting you, it’s been that long.

I swear to God, I started having déjà vu all over again. It was like watching a tag team match between two really likeable wrestlers against two real villains.  You know what I mean. 

The likeable guys always wait until their guy actually tags them before entering the fray. Meanwhile, the two villains keep jumping in the ring to help their fellow villain, and to make a mockery of the rules.  And the ref always sees the good guy the one time he decides to break with protocol and enter the ring when the villains enter the ring for the umpteenth time to help their buddy without being tagged. 

Of course, just as the good guy is administering some whoop ass justice to the villain who wrongfully entered without being tagged, the ref suddenly enforces the rules and takes the good guy out of the ring.  While the ref’s back is turned as he is leading out the good guy, the two villains come back to their senses and commence beating the bejeebers out of the poor good guy left in the ring.  By the time the ref notices, the good guy in the ring is toast. Of course the ref makes a show of fairly enforcing the rules: he dutifully kicks out the villain who is not supposed to be there.  And then he returns just in time to count the good guy out. 

Back to the Lions.  Hey, look! There’s a Detroit Lions interception!  No, sorry, flag on the play.  Offsides penalty negated the interception.  Replay of course shows no offsides.  Even the announcers are speechless.  Oh, isn’t this cute? The Lions are driving.  Lion’s receiver runs the wrong route, and a Packer intercepts it and returns it for a touch down. 

Oh, how sweet. The Lions are driving for a go ahead score with six minutes to go. Wow, they have dominated the Packers defense all day.  No way the Pack will stop them now. Ooops. Spoke too soon. The Pack D stiffened just at the right position.  The Lions are 55 yards away from a field goal, and nine yards away from a first down.  No problem, the Lions will just punt. They have dominated the Pack offense all second half.  No way the Pack offense can hold on to the ball for six minutes to preserve a two point lead, right?

Fuck.  Try to guess what happened.  And to all you morons who script the NFL games, try to come up with something new next time.  I’d believe a 35-3 shellacking in Green Bay against our depleted secondary, missing our best linebacker and our star quarterback.  Somehow, I could have taken that better than this monstrosity that you left us with Sunday.  Hope, you M’fers, that’s what you built up in me, HOPE.  And that is just wrong.  Wrong, do you hear me? W-R-O-N-G!
