9-11

Don’t expect anything amazing from this. I was upset when I wrote it. I’m just putting my feelings out. Grammar and everything probably sucks but I honestly don’t care.

Eight years ago I was in fourth grade. I remember because in fourth grade we had to write daily journals. Just half a page, but I never knew what to write about.

That day I did, though, simply because I was confused. People were talking about planes crashing, but that‘s all I heard. I wrote half a page asking why everyone was so scared, and then handed it in. Didn’t really get any answers to those questions.

I know that my teachers and my family thought it was a good idea to try to shelter me and my siblings from what happened… to just go on and act like everything was okay. Not let us know that something was wrong. But the thing was, we KNEW something was wrong. We could feel it. People were scared and sad and we had no idea why.

After that day, I noticed some things changing. People were nicer… more united. There were flags everywhere and everyone seemed proud to be who they were and to live where they did. By then I only knew two things: Something horrible had happened to my country, but something good was happening inside people.

Of course I found out what happened. It didn’t take long. I was young but I wasn’t stupid. I can turn on a TV. I can see footage of buildings crumbling and understand what it meant. Horrible people had killed lots and lots of Americans.

And over the years it became more and more clear to me. The older I got the more I understood why it happened, and the more I was able to comprehend how bad it actually was.

I love America. I despise anyone who wants to destroy it. These days I’ll probably be seen as an intolerant hate-monger by some for that, but I really don’t care. I also despise those who want to blame US for it. You know, we were asking for it. Chickens coming home to roost, you know. It was our foreign policy. It was all our fault. This is what we get. This is what we get for thinking we’re so great. This is what we get for meddling. I won’t even start on the “truthers.” And to them, we who still cling to the memory, to the sadness and the anger, but also the love and the pride that we felt for our country and the people in it, we are the ones that are in the wrong. We’re the ones trying to use a tragedy for political gain. We’re the ones who are trying to look good and patriotic. They fail to see is that we simply love this country and what it stands for. It isn’t an act, it’s who we are.

Evil people can’t be seen as evil people anymore. That is intolerance. But I guess I’m intolerant, because I can’t buy that crap. The people who did this are monsters. Horrible people who believed horrible things. I’m not afraid to say it. I won’t stop believing that the USA is the best country in the world. I won’t stop believing that we are the good guys.

I don‘t care how clichéd this sounds. I am proud to be an American. I love this country. God bless it over and over and over again.

Obama is God.

Or rather, Obama is sort of God. Jesus was a ‘community organizer,’ you know!!!

….

But wait! Don’t liberals want God OUT of the government? Don’t they want His name removed from every public place so people can be free from ever being shown views that are differnet from their own (unless they’re secular humanist views?) Don’t they believe in freedom ‘from’ religion??

I guess that means Obama can’t be our president anymore. See ya, Barry!!

So Wrong, It’s…. well… wrong.

I don’t get angry often. I’m never offended. It’s a rare thing for me.

But this “Hate-F**k” list TICKS ME OFF.

I don’t care if you don’t like someone. I don’t care if you don’t like what they believe. Any person who would write a list like this, talking about the women that he hates, but would love to screw and abuse (pretty much rape), is one sick freak.

For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, there was a list on Playboy.com titled “So Right It’s Wrong, The Top 10 Conservative Women We Hate To Love” To see what exactly it is, check out the screenshots here: http://www.redstate.com/absentee/2009/06/02/the-playboy-article-nsfw/

The women on this list are Michelle Malkin, Megyn Kelly, Mary Katherine Ham, Amanda Carpenter, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Dana Perin, Laura Ingraham, Pamela Geller, Michele Bachmann, and Peggy Noonan. Now, I don’t recognize all of these names, but judging by the ones I do know, he chose beautiful and intelligent Conservative women. (The best kind.) I’m assuming his hatred stems from his inability to attracts women who are both beautiful and intelligent, such as these.

What makes me angry isn’t necessarily the list. I mean, it’s disgusting, and wrong, but there will always be sick people who write horrible things about people they disagree with. The list has been removed from the website. What really makes me angry are the people saying that they “had it coming.”

There are actually people out there who think that these girls deserved it. That there are actually women out there who either deserve to have stuff like that written about them, or who actually deserve to have that done to them.

I was listening to Sean Hannity on the radio today, and he completely went of on a man who called in saying the women where asking for it. I don’t blame him. I would have too. There is never an excuse to joke about things like rape and abuse, especially when using real people. I don’t CARE if you like the person or not.

And I know people will disagree with me on this. Some people who don’t think it’s such a big deal. I don’t care. I honestly think that if you fanaticize about raping or abusing people, or you wish such things on people who think differently than you, you are a sick freak.

And even though I think you’re a sick freak, I still would never want you to be “Hate-F**ked.”

President: USA is Out of Money

According to Drudge, Barack Obama admitted during a C-SPAN interview that the United States is out of money. That’s right. Out.

SCULLY: You know the numbers, $1.7 trillion debt, a national deficit of $11 trillion. At what point do we run out of money? 

OBAMA: Well, we are out of money now…

Out.

So what does this mean? Does this mean that conservatives were right when they decried the truly insane spending?

Last I checked, we’re still in a recession. His big ideas clearly haven’t worked and now he admits that we’re out of money. I thought that the moronic spending bills where supposed to spur the economy and bring in more taxes. But they haven’t. Will he be healed accountable for something that can only be his fault? No, of course not. Someone will still find some way to blame Bush.

GM Bankruptcy Plan Calls For Quick Sale to Gov’t

Wow. What can one really say to this?

NEW YORK, May 19 (Reuters) – General Motors Corp’s (GM.N) plan for a bankruptcy filing involves a quick sale of the company’s healthy assets to a new company initially owned by the U.S. government, a source familiar with the situation said on Tuesday.

So the US government is now getting into car manufacturing? More so than it already has, I mean. Can someone please tell me where they can constitutionally do this?

Of course not. Because they can’t. This sale, even if it were a good idea (it’s not) is still completely illegal. Is someone going to call them on it? Of course not. Except maybe me, but I don’t really expect some aide to go running into the oval office screaming “some guy with a blog says we shouldn’t do this!”

But just in case: Mister Obama, you cannot do this! Let the free market take it’s course and stop sticking your hands where they don’t belong! Leave it be and let it fail. It will emerge stronger in the end.

Follow your heart

You want to know where we went wrong with our kids? Let’s start with a story.

You’re standing by a river. You see your  dog–the dog that you love and adore–drowning. But wait, a bit further down the stream there’s a man and he’s in trouble too! What do you do?  Do you jump in and save your beloved dog, or this stranger? 

It’s likely that your emotions tell you to go for your dog. But you know in your heart that it’s your duty to save that other person.

 

Now, ask a child. They’ll likely tell you that they’d try to save their dog. The real question now is what do you say to that child? Will you say “well, I value your opinion,” or some such nonsense? Probably. Because it’s become so taboo in this society to simply tell kids “you’re wrong.” 

No, we must “value” their opinion. That is where we’ve gone wrong. We’ve taught our kids to allow themselves to be governed by feelings instead of principal. Now, we do what feels right instead of what is right.

Every human knows what is right in their hearts. “Deep down” we all have the truth. Yet, we seems to have this all backwards. When we do what feels right we aren’t “following our hearts,” no, we’re following the hormones coursing through our brains. When we do what feels right, we are, in fact, following our minds. But when we do what is right, then, and only then, are we following out hearts.

Meghan McCain Doesn’t Understand the GOP

Recently I was blocked from Meghan McCain’s Twitter page, so I cannot follower her. I can still see her posts, though, which is weird. I’m not really sure why, considering in all my Twitter days I have only replied to one of her posts.

Meghan constantly gloats about her ideas and the fact that she makes political pundits “uncomfortable.” At one point, she claimed this was because she “is a young Republican woman who talks about sex in a real way.” I replied to her and said that the Conservative view of sex is just different, and not any less real. I was sick of her constant “I am a new kind of Republican, and everyone’s afraid of me because of it.”

That was May 7, and I just noticed now that I’m blocked. I’m a little surprised by it, because, like I said, I had only commented on one thing. It could have possibly been a mistake, or she blocked a lot of people, who knows? But either way, I’m going to write something I’ve been putting off. I’ve been wanting to write about Meghan for a while now. I actually hardly knew she existed before she made those comments about Ann Coulter. The only reason I had known she existed before this was because I had bought the children’s book My Dad, John McCain, which she had written.

I instantly wasn’t a fan of her, not because she didn’t like Ann Coulter, but because of a few things I began to notice about the WAY she criticized her, and other people.

It seems that she doesn’t understand why people could ever disagree with her, and that any one who does simply doesn’t understand, or is afraid. When pundits criticize her, she seems to think it’s because her ideas are too new and advanced for them. She talks about inclusiveness in the party, but that inclusiveness seems to be reserved for Moderates. Conservatives are told that they need to keep their social views to themselves more, and that the Republican party needs to move more to the center.

She also seems more prone to arguing than accepting the different opinions of others. Constructive criticism is good, but relentlessly slamming the Conservatives in the Republican party will not change anyone’s opinions. It will only make the Conservatives not like her. Generally, from what I’ve seen, most Conservatives don’t even take her seriously. And despite how closely I watch the political pundits, I don’t see all that much attacking going on. Ann Coulter didn’t even reply to her. Every person who gets involved in political matters is picked on and criticized to some extent, and Meg isn’t getting any more than anyone else.

Another criticism I have is the arrogance she puts off. This all goes back to her treatment of those who disagree with her, and her responses to criticism. If someone disagrees with her and aren’t a fan of her message, they’re afraid. She seems to see herself as the one who will change the party, and turn it into something better. She acts like her ideas are new, and that she’s going to create a revolution. A few things I took off of her Twitter page:

enjoy every second of winding up old political pundits. I love that I make you uncomfortable. Who knew I would be so effective?

all the negative radical pundits: “Does it hurt to know I’ll never be there? Bet it sucks, to see my face everywhere” – Kelly Clarkson

@jeremycwalker I expected pundits to freak out, I am a young republican woman talking about sex in a real way…. it’s scary to some people.

RT @mayorsam Why Old Repugs and Vapid Liberals don’t like @mccainblogette: “What she is saying scares the crap out of them”

The problem is that her ideas are not new. She’s just a Moderate. I researched her political views, and I found out that she’s basically a Republican when it comes to economic issues, but socially liberal. She’s pro-gay marriage, and she feels the need to say that she supports birth control despite the fact that there isn’t much opposition to that in the Republican party. She claims that the GOP doesn’t understand sex. (Though I think that she doesn’t understand the GOP’s view of sex.)

Now, I don’t see what’s so new about these ideas. I assume she knows that there are plenty of gay and pro-gay marriage supporting Republicans out there. Actually, that’s probably the issue people lean left on the most in this party. I’m confused about the rest. She claims that the Republican party is bad about birth control. Not really. We just don’t want it passed out in school, and don’t want schools to teach that it’s fool-proof. There really aren’t that many abstinence-only supporters out there, though the liberals love to use that to paint us as “religious freaks.”

Also, the criticism of Bristol Palin came from the left, despite the fact that she and her boyfriend used a condom. It was perfect, because they could paint Sarah as an abstinence-only sex-ed supporter, and then point out the “failure” of her daughter. There weren’t a lot of outraged Conservatives speaking out against her. In general, we understand that people make mistakes, and while we in no way condoned teenage pregnancy, we can’t judge, and we definitely cannot judge Sarah by the acts of her daughter. I’m sure we would see a lot of the same had a liberal politician had a pregnant teenage daughter.

Let me make it clear what the Conservative view of sex is. Keep in mind that this is simply a view that is held by many Conservatives, but isn’t necessarily a belief of the party. (I only mention this because we keep getting attacked for being “prudish.”) Sex is not a bad thing in itself. It is a good thing, actually. But it’s something to be shared with someone you really love, not just something to have on a fling. Much of the time, because many Conservatives do happen to be Christian, this should be in the confines of marriage, but it does vary depending on the person and his/her individual beliefs. Virginity is too special to be wasted, and to have the best experience, and to have the least risks, it should be saved. It is not unrealistic, and we don’t expect it from people that do not hold the same beliefs. There is nothing wrong with the fact that this belief is held by many Conservatives. It is no less “real” than Ms. McCain’s view. All I ask is that she respects that.

I also found this little quote from when she spoke to the Log Cabin Republicans:

“I am concerned about the environment. I love to wear black. I think government is best when it stays out of people’s lives and business as much as possible. I love punk rock. I believe in a strong national defense. I have a tattoo. I believe government should always be efficient and accountable. I have lots of gay friends. And yes, I am a Republican.”

This only makes me more certain that she doesn’t fully understand what it means to be a Republican. It’s almost like she’s learned all she knows about them from liberals. The stereotypes she sees are so close to the ones they do. Republicans aren’t against protecting the environment, just some ideas people have about how to save it, and jumping to conclusions about global warming and such. We generally don’t believe it’s in as much danger as some people (Al Gore) say it is. I love to wear black too, as do many of my Conservative friends. What does that have to do with anything? I want government out of my life too. I love all kinds of music, and all kinds of rock. I too believe in a strong national defense. I don’t have a tattoo, but I’d get one if I wanted one. Who doesn’t believe government should be efficient and accountable? And I also have plenty of gay friends. What is un-Republican about any of that? I know she’s trying to say, “Hey, I believe all this Republican stuff, but I’m not your ordinary Republican!”, but she’s still putting us into this little box that we’re normally put in by liberals.

Another thing is that she thinks that her “new” ideas are not well accepted because she’s from a different generation. Meghan, I am younger than you, and I do not appreciate your intolerance or your arrogance anymore than the older Conservative pundits who are so “afraid” of you. She’s also blamed the criticism on her weight, and while there have been some people who have poked fun at her for it, no one really dislikes her for that. Nor do they dislike her for her sex, or her hair color, or her friends, or anything that she blames it on. They dislike her for her brattyness. “Does he even know who the f— I am?” For the record, I’m a woman, and I think the title “Paris Hilton of the GOP” is very accurate. Perhaps it isn’t so sexist after all?

In conclusion, I don’t have much against Meghan, even if I seemed to have a lot to say about her. I just want her to be more respectful and accepting of views that are different from her, and to accept that the entire Republican party will not conform to be like her, at least not all of it. A lot of us really love Conservative pundits, and while she can represent the Moderates in the party, we’re still going to follow Rush, Ann, Glenn, and everyone else that we’ve come to know and love. We’re not all old-fashioned, misunderstanding, or afraid. We simply disagree. I don’t think that Meghan is useless, I just think that she won’t make the difference if she continues acting the way she has. If she becomes more accepting, I think she can be a great person to represent Moderate Republicans.
