Idiot's Delight!

Well folks, first let me wish everyone the best of holiday seasons! That means a belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As usual, we have in the last week or two seen idiocy and ignorance on display for all to see, be it the Global Warming garbage, terrorism, Iran and so on. Where to start? Well, as we all know I'm slightly Anti Obama. So let's start with out moron in chief. And for those who don't like that term ( I was taken to task for this the other day), to bad. I respect the office, but I sure don't have to respect the man in it!

I'm including a piece from Ben Smith's column the other day as to the Copenhagen fiasco below.

"Copenhagen was a disaster. That much is agreed. But the truth about what actually happened is in danger of being lost amid the spin and inevitable mutual recriminations. The truth is this: China wrecked the talks, intentionally humiliated Barack Obama and insisted on an awful "deal" so Western leaders would walk away carrying the blame. How do I know this? Because I was in the room and saw it happen.

China's strategy was simple: Block the open negotiations for two weeks, and then ensure that the closed-door deal made it look as if the West had failed the world's poor once again. And sure enough, the aid agencies, civil society movements and environmental groups all took the bait. The failure was "the inevitable result of rich countries refusing adequately and fairly to shoulder their overwhelming responsibility", said Christian Aid. "Rich countries have bullied developing nations," fumed Friends of the Earth International."

Mr. Smith made the point that the president fought for what he wanted and China told him in effect to F... Off! He notes that the world blamed the rich countires for not doing enough and so on and so on. Then we get Madame Hillary offering $100 billion a year to help the poorer countries clean up their act. Can we all say "what a Crock of Shit?! The U.S. is bankrupt (Health Care Reform, Cap and Trade, and all the rest of this radical Socialist agenda not withstanding) and now the administration wants to transfer more wealth to the poor countries? Guess what Hillary and Obie. I don't want my money to go to anyone that refuses to help themselves! Socialism at it's core, pure and simple. And all the while, China goes happily on it's way. The sad part is that so many people actually believe the big bad U.S. is the problem. I'm sick of our political elite bending over and taking it up where the sun doesn't shine and paying for it! Another monetary mandate we cannot afford!

One other thing on the climate change issue. I believe in Climate Change. It's called Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall.

Now to Iran. This happens to be from Fox but is in fact out everywhere.

"Iran will possess the technology to build a nuclear bomb by early 2010 and be able to produce one the following year, Israeli media quoted Israel's defense minister as saying Monday.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak delivered his assessment before the Israeli parliament's defense and foreign affairs committee. It broadly matches assessments from other nations including the U.S., which estimates that Tehran could produce a nuclear weapon between 2010 and 2015"

Again, we're shocked at this? Whether you like Israel or hate them, one thing is and always has been true. They have without a doubt the best spy agency in the world. If the Mossad in fact says Iran is close, they are close. As the Iranian government is now at war with it's own people, it is even more important attention is paid to the bomb effort. The morons there are mad and full of hate. I'm sure, we're still supposed to have a dialogue with them so we can understand why they dislike the West so much. Poppycock!

Now, on to Katie Couric. I actually was watching her when she said the following.

"I think the economic situation in this country, I think when people are struggling, that sometimes they need a place to vent their rage and to channel their rage.
And I think -- I feel like right now, in many ways, we're a very angry nation, and whenever I think it's never -- it's not going to get more polarized, it seems to. But it all seems to be expressed through a prism of anger and disgust and disrespect, which I find really, really troubling."

I still cannot figure out how this condenscending bitch is anchoring the news. I for am not angry per say. I am sick and tired of being told I hate, I'm racist, etc. because I oppose bad policy. This president and his main lackys are Socialists! Everytime I say this, I'm accused of hate. Bull Shit! To bad Katie as most of the others have forgotten what journalism is. Poor Walter must be rolling in his grave! He didn't espouse his liberal views until after he retired. Class act to the end.

Finally, this from the Times Online (UK).

"The man who allegedly tried to blow up a transatlantic passenger jet over Detroit has reportedly claimed that he is one from a production line of terrorists that has been trained in Yemen by al-Qaeda.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who is charged with the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Airlines flight 253, told FBI agents others with similar training to him were now ready to launch their own attacks, according to the US network ABC.
The claim came as al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula released its first communication since the failed bombing. In a written statement it called on "the people of the Arabian peninsula" to attack American military installations, ships and "spying embassies".
Fanatical Muslim terrorists have been experimenting to avoid searches. A senior British security source said: “The second novel device to emerge from the Yemen in recent months leads one to wonder if the al-Qaeda R&D [research and development] department has moved there.”

Wow! What a shock. The radical muslims still hate us! They're still training people to kill Westerners. And the head of Homeland Security has her head up her you know what. "We blew it and didn't perform as we should have". No Kidding! Thanks to this bozo of a president and his left leaning, cowardly cabinet, we are once again in a pre 9/11 mentality. Guess what Mr. President. You cannot talk to madmen and radicals! But you know that! You and your followers are madmen and radicals. We can't talk to you either. You villify us and call us haters or worse, just as is going on in most of the third world! So, I guess I shouldn't be surprised they are getting bolder. After all, strike when you sense weakness. It's the radical way.

Sorry about the length today. So much more going on. The more I see, the madder I'm getting. Point in fact. A leading Democrat made the point that the "Cadillac Tax" (tax on high priced premiums) IS NOT A TAX! It's a road to financing Health Reform. And there are people out there that will actually believe this tripe! And folks wonder why this country is in trouble? Between the costs we aren't being told about as well as the real cost, we are in deep DOO DOO! Has anyone had the balls to ask any of these idiots how they feel about bankrupting our children, our grandchildren and the country in general. How about it President Bozo, Harry or Nancy? Do any one of you have the balls to answer that question? NOT! Why answer an honest question when it's so much easier to openly lie over and over to an apparently acceptable public.

Horse Racing Survival

All who know me also know I have been in the horse racing industry my entire life. Horse racing is and always has been my first true love. The excitement, color, and drama cannot be duplicated anywhere. Well, everyone also knows racing is in dire straights. WHY?
A friend of mine, John Pricci wrote a great column which he called "Back to the Future, When Racing Was Special". In it was a question and his quote.
“When did racing begin to slip?” Without hesitation I said “the day tracks decided to relax the dress codes in the clubhouse.”
I commented as follows:
Your answer to the slide, “the day tracks decided to relax the dress codes in the clubhouse.” Couldn’t have said it better myself!
Back to Hialeah. when I first went there in the late 60’s, you had to wear a jacket in the clubhouse. And my God, the people an 18 year old ( Couldn’t go to the races there legally until 21, but as long as you had a license, groom or whatever, you could get in) kid could meet!
Mickey Rooney. Steve Lawrence. Imagine coming fact to face and meeting Liz Taylor! And the list goes on. The point is, the race track was one of the few places where the common guy could not only rub shoulders with the “gentry”, but actually talk to them one on one on a subject they all enjoyed. Never got that feeling at Gulfstream. So I fully agree, retro can be quite good.
As I travel around, I have noticed one thing. The young folks that do frequent the tracks seem to do so for the same reasons we did all those years ago. The love of the sport and the tradition involved can be an intoxicating elixer.
Kids get that, if presented to them correctly! As this sport didn’t bother to go after two generations of could be patrons, we are re-starting from behind. but as I said about Hialeah. It can be done. It will take an industry that is willing to put aside egos and work together and promotion reminding people of the good that is racing.
Notice I make a reference to Hialeah. John Brunetti has the track open for Quarter Horse, hoping to get slots, but also hoping to get T-breds back. I sent an email to the above mentioned writer as follows.

“As you well know, I for one have seen too much of this inane idiocy as to the industry refusing to work together. Too many people having their own agenda, as always!

“As to Gulfstream, for what it’s worth, I hated the old Gulfstream and hate the new one. They had a chance to get it right and as usual, blew it.

“However, there is a track, one that everyone should hope can come back one more time like the Phoenix from the ashes. HIALEAH!

“Faint hope on my part, I agree, but what an [opening day]! If they can hold it together and in the end get T-breds, what a great shot in the arm for our sport!

“In turn, this brings us back to the industry and it’s refusal to work with each other. No better example then Fla. and Hialeah. Yes, Brunetti was as much to blame as the rest, but one thing still remains a fact. The “Saratoga of the South” could be resurrected!

“I have always advocated a one month-to-5 week super meet at Hialeah centered around the traditional dates of the Flamingo and the Widener. No brainer here!

“Fla. in one small step could begin to lead the way in “cooperation” and save a grand lady in the process. RACING WOULD BE BETTER FOR THIS! And the people will come, just as they do to the Spa!

“This in my view has always been something that could only enhance our sport. The Spa proves it can be done. Racing needs it's heroes and grand dames and, for me, there is no track dearer to my heart than Hialeah!

“Just wanted to toss that your way. As I said, I really think something like this could do so much more than help racing. It could be a first step towards some form of civility and cooperation in this crazy industry.”
I followed up as follows.

There are very few times in this life that a chance is presented to correct a grievious mistake. The racing industry in Fla has a chance to not only do that, but to possibly lead the way and show exactly what co-operation could do for the racing industry.
Here is a chance for someone, anyone to lead! Listen up Florida and the horse racing industry in general. You’re running out of chances. Show us we are wrong! The problem is as always. To many egos, political shenanigans, and corporations forgetting the basics of any business. the customer!

Just a lesson in life here kids. Whether it's horse racing, government or life in general, mistakes can be rectified! In this case, I do believe racing in general can be saved. It takes co-operation and common sense. Which now brings me back to my earlier tirade.
The mistake the electorate made last year can be rectified. It is up to us, "We The People" to hold our elected officials accountable, be it horse racing or life in general.

The Continuing Circus Act

My God! Where do I start? Oh well, here goes.

What in the hell were the people in Minnesota thinking when they voted in this piece of human garbage known as Al Franken?! After his antics of the last few days, I can only conclude he is an emabarrasment to himself, the state, but most of all to the Senate and in turn the country. And Chairman Harry and his media boot lickers can't be bothered to bring him to task? Gotta admit. Harry has it made. Get morons to do his dirty work and not worry about a thing as a co-opted media hides the truth from the public.

Health care or as I say, Step number 1 to Socialization. One way or the other, the leftist bastards are going to force it down our throats. In the end, they are all caving to chairman Harry and his dictatorship. I still have two big questions here. Where is Comrade Obama and his "all negotiations will be done publicly" pledge? Where is the media outcry as to locked doors and smoke filled rooms? Interesting how for years they fought the very thing that is now occurring in DC and then have the utter gall to state they are indeed doing the best jounalism ever. Disgusting!
Still haven't seen how we can pay for this fiasco! The more studies show our costs will go up, the more the administration and the lackys demonize the messengers.

Which brings us to the debt limit. They have voted to raise the debt limit. In effect, they are going to borrow more money (actually they are going to print more worthless paper). All the while Emperor Obama fiddles while our country's financial system goes up in flames. Bottom line here. We cannot sustain this debt! We cannot spend our way out of this depression with money that does not exist! Good Grief! It doesn't take a degree to realize one is broke! That is if you are not elitist socialist pigs as our current leaders. As I have stated before, we are headed the way of the Wiemarch! People have got to stop putting their hands out and demand spending on every governmant level be brought under control.

And of course we have the climate warming BS! Madame Hillary goes and offers one hundred billion dollars for countries that can't (read that refuse as long as they can force uncle sugar Daddy) clean up their own mess. The income redistribution for this bogus garbage is 143 Trillion! And make no mistake of this. Global Warming is the battle cry for the communist party now. Comrade Obama goes and tries to make a deal. China, his main handler tells him to blow it out his ass as did India. No sutprise there! BTW: Who actually is supposed to control all of this money for GW? The UN! Ha HA HA! The Socialist Bastards that are demanding we lower our standards
so they are equal to us? Certainly not our Socialist president. Scary thoughts, aren't they? Gotta laugh though. The Great Obama came back empty handed. Thank God for that!

I happened to catch an interview with Andy Williams last night. What a great man,willing to take on the Hollywood elite and call it like it is. Called out Obama for what he really is. Called him a socialist! Made the extremely valid point that he ran as one thing then immediately started governing using his true ideals. How sad others do not have the courage to speak out as he did. (John Voight, another great man).

Glenn Beck: His Real Message

Before I get to Glenn, tomorrow I'll be putting forward my thoughts as to the jobs fiasco and the rather pedestrian, at best speech given at West Point. Today however, I want to say something about Glenn Beck.

Yesterday I read a well written story at "" to which I give high kudos. This story basically pointed out that although advertisers pulled out from Glenn's show, Fox has not lost any revenue and other then the fact that his new advertisers are considered "B LIST" for want of better words (by those supposedly in the know), Glenn's ratings keep climbing. Of course, read the liberal hate blogs and Glenn is in trouble, going to lose his job, Fox revenues are down, blah, blah, blah! And although they mentioned his "Obama is a racist" comments, I found it well researched and although slightly left biased, quite fair. In the end they came to the correct conclusion. Glenn will just keep happily plugging along, politically correct leftist hate mongers be damned!

As I read this I also noticed they had a comment section with well over 500 comments to the story. Funny thing here. The usual hate mongers from the left calling him names, liar, racist, etc., as well as the hard core right who have also been taken to task by Glenn in some of his tirades all chimed in. The really pitiful thing though is there were "word for word" posts from some folks that I had seen on many other sites, and many other hate the conservatives responses, vilifying the man. Cooler then that, one of the rants from a looney leftist was "word for word" a rant that had been posted in response to something I had put out months ago on the Van Jones fiasco on the Fox site! So in many cases, the charges that the left (and the right) have canned responses for things is more than true. In turn, I commented as below. Note again, some of you have seen some of what I say below and I'm sorry if it is redundant.

My Response to the Daily Finance story on Glenn Beck is below.

"Rant and rave about Glenn Beck, or the fact that the left considers good Americans of any political stripe racists or fear mongers, but there is one simple fact that has been proven here! The truth will win over the BIG LIE if presented to the people and as long as the people are paying attention as they should be with their responsibilities as voters! As such, in watching Beck, I always see one thing that stands out from him. He always preaches this axiom. Ask Questions! Educate yourself as to your country, who you are voting for and stand by your ideals! Whether you like him or not, I do not see anything wrong with this. He has to right to express his opinion, a right that folks in government and hard left or hard right people want to take away.

The man, whether you like it or not loves his country. I personally do not see anything wrong with this. He refuses to apologize for America. Good for him! I'm personally sick and tired of the assault from the left about our so called transgressions, etc. He posts statements from books and writings to bolster his rants and raves. So, I do something that, according to the leftist morons on this and other sites we uneducated conservatives can't do. I read everything I can find on the subject or person. As is always the case, people that are caught by their own words and actions fight back in the only way they can. They throw any lie or misfact they can, over and over until it's believed.

Glenn isn't doing anything different then when Rush first started. He is however getting the same hate and vilification from the usual suspects. The man has the balls to stand up for what he believes! He takes hit after hit yet he's still there, while those on the hard left and right run and hide, always referring to him and others as racist, hate-mongers, or whatever. Heaven forbid they look deeply at themselves.

This is from a past post of mine but extremely pertinant to this discussion. (It is in reference to the Van Jones fiasco).

I see the usual, "stop using fear" (as in Marxists in the administration), "stop spreading lies", (as in "In His Own Words), "Glen Beck and Fox News destroyed a good and honest man" ( as in OOPS! Did their job as reporters and showed the truth!) and so on. What I have not seen yet is one shred of evidence that can back up the tripe (I love that word) that the lefties are putting out! There is a common thread running through this as with most things that are involved with a leftist and/or dictatorship way of doing things! Control of the media! Overwhelm the people’s senses with Lies, Lies and more Lies! As for the charge of us spreading fear. You are damned right we are spreading fear! But it's not fear mongering as charged. It is the fear all liars, cheats and other corrupt individuals face when confronted with the truth or facts!

Fact: Obama is a Marxist. In his own words in his own book! (My words, not Glenn's)
Don't take that Obama comment out of context. It was Glenn Beck who as he went down his list of radicals, etc. reminded the audience, provided they even wanted to hear the message, not to just take his word on this. He suggested we read up on it. So I did. I made that comment based on everything I could find on this clown now in office. For that comment and others of like content, I and others, including Glenn are racist or whatever.

The truth hurts folks! That's what life is about. We the people must now chase down the truth about the rest of this radical administration. It's easy to do. It is there in their own words and writing! And this is what I get as the main message when I happen to see his show (those of you who know me realize I do not get to watch him as near as often as I would like). He basically preaches the following. Seek the truth! Ask questions! You don't have to believe me, but at least educate yourselves.

As I have said in the past, the silent majority has a bad habit of letting things go way to long and as such, the country gets into situations like now. But once we wake up, watch out! "We the People" have had enough! The very survival of the country that our forefathers founded, that they fought and died for so "We the People" could exercise our rights and freedoms is at great peril.

And the saddest part of all is that the so called liberals, the so called party of tolerance, want to silence anyone who they disagree with."

Well, as you can guess, folks on the left are not happy with my take on this. Oh well. It's difficult to soar with the eagles if you're surrounded by turkeys and the folks on the left sure are trapped in turkey land.

So when it's all said and done, Beck goes on. But for how long? This administration and the leftist lackys backing it are hell bent on stifling our freedom of speech. And that isn't a joke! As to Glenn himself, I say again. You do not have to believe what he has to say any more then you have to believe what Obama and his minions have to say. But at least listen to the most important part of his message.

You are the caretakers of this government, not the morons in office. Educate yourselves on the issues and the folks running for and already in office. Don't act on their lies and promises. Make your decisions based on their words and actions. Ask the important questions! Love your country! Remember the ideals and priciples this country was founded on. Remember those who have paid the ultimate to give this to us. When all is said and done, everytime I watch Glenn, this is the message I always take from him. and folks, it is a great message!
