first off wrote:sorry this was so long. this rant is brought to you by the Sarah Palin interview.
Really Joel? You really think John McCain and Sarah Palin are best for this country? I mean you're still cool in my book cause you like the warriors, but.... argh!
Did you hear the Palin speech at the RNC (which is repeated verbatim at all the rallies)? it was just filled with hate for Obama and nothing else. Sarcastic, condescending and just straight up mean spirited. If she's going to toss out shhit like that, she better prepare to get it thrown back in her face. and nobody give me that "she's a women crap". either your tough or your not. either your going to cry when you don't win the new hampshire primaries or your a "fighter" (Hillary). I understand women are not completely together on this issue, but you can't play both sides as an individual. On a similar note, either we're liberal pusssies that don't stand up to injustice, or we're not. don't accuse us of being pusssies AND accuse us of bashing you at the same time.
Lets review the democratic bashing...
1.)Lipstick on a pig - trying to paint Obama as sexist when it's a phrase McCain has used half a dozen times (it's a common political phrase) - including one time when he was talking about Clinton's health care system.
2.)Obama is pro infanticide - Repubs were seriously trying to accuse Obama of wanting to murder babies.
3.)All you heard in the RNC - Obama wants to raise your taxes. LIES! everyone knows he's always been for giving a majority of americans a fatty tax break.
4.)Community Organizers don't do anything, "Nothing. Nada."
5.)Obama is a Celebrity just like Paris Hilton, or Britney Spears.
6.)even the argument that Obama is an "elitist" pusssy, because he made his way from nothing and graduated from the top university in the united states as opposed to graduating at the bottom of his class, going into the air force, and just marrying some young extremely rich heiress. yeah it doesn't make sense to me either.
7.)from a McCain ad: "they dismissed Palin as '....good looking...' and even accused her of '...lying...' " - OMG stop the presses! a politician isn't telling the complete truth and we called her on it! again trying to paint Obama as a sexist.
8.)Obama is trying to teach Kindergarden sex-ed before they can read ad... ridiculous lie. He worked on a law teaching the K'ers the diff between "good touch" and "bad touch" and how to report it, to stop abuse in schools.
9.) Obama is a muslim. ridiculous.
10.)not to mention all the racist stuff thats whispered behind closed doors.
Why shouldn't we be upset as demo's? Why can't we point out that candidates with this low level of integrity probably shouldn't be the leaders of our country?
I mean what kind of country is this, where a major party can just lie to your face and the American people can't call them on their bull without seeming like "bashers"?
to be fair... I don't know why this "book banning" thing is still in the news, sounds made up. I also didn't like the Obama ad that was ONLY about the 9 homes john McCain has in the united states. the clip about 100years war was bad too. Additionally I don't care for the woman's tone of voice in all the Obama the ads - I know you have to grab your audience's attention, but it sounds too much like she's playing to our emotions and it's to close to fear mongering. but those are my only ethical beefs with the obama campaign.... what about you guys (repubs)? which of McCain's ads/smears do you feel were below the belt? I think deep down you guys are all ashamed, but you won't admit it cause you are too worried about national security and you think "hey, in order to be tough and feel safe, you have to have a leader who's a complete arsehole/douche bag"
You Repubs try to go into the inner city schools and tell those kids to just "pick themselves up by their own boot straps". see if that changes anything. trickle down economics doesn't work in the modern era, and every time we try it the economy suffers (as evidenced by the last 3 repub presies). a rich guy can just throw his extra cash in an off shore bank these days...
Rural country folk see urban areas from a far and just assume everything bad that happens to us is our fault, so they say no to government taxes supporting big cities. We support your ass out there in the middle of no where! Farmers that want to dismiss taxes for urban areas as "wasteful spending" are basically giving the middle finger to their clients. City people can't afford the milk, because they can't get out of high school (let alone college) to get a descent job, and what happens to the farmer? were all connected.
does the government waste time on useless shiit? Of course. there are a lot of loop holes that ppl get away with and that bugs the crap out of me. Since this is true, I'd rather trust a man that has actually been with the people to see what policies are a load of crap and what policies have a chance to benefit the community efficiently and effectively. also, even though Obama doesn't have much xp, at least he thinks with his head; he's able to negotiate with others and learn more, and he doesn't just think with his gut and make rash decisions because he doesn't want to look stupid (which as Bush has proved, DOES make you look stupid).
All you hear from Palin is "you can't blink Charlie", and "you can't second guess these things Charlie" I doubt Sarah Palin has ever even talked to someone darker than an Eskimo, let alone ever taken the time to understand their problems and issues. and no, "small towns are just big cities on a micro scale, Charlie" NO wrong.... they are very very different. Alaska is not just like the rest of America (my roommate was from Alaska, so I do have a little insight into life up there).
I mean come on, she doesn't even believe in BC (I meant Birth Control at first but I also realize it could work for Before Christ too lol) - worked out great for her family. now shes a grandma at 44, and she has a kid with down syndrome (chances of this go up exponentially after 40). if shes president she'd probably try to turn this country into an abstinence-only nation! She believes women that are raped should have to pay their own medical bills for Christ's sake(Wasila was the only town in Alaska to have that law)! She is against abortion EVEN IN THE CASE OF RAPE (unless it's life threatening)! dude, screw the experience level, anybody that believes those policies are good for this nation... I just don't get it.
And no one give me any bull about "oh she's just the Vice" - my great aunt was healthy as a MFing ox until she passed away AT 75 (McCain is 72) of a heart attack last year. It's perfectly legit to compare Obama to Palin because McCain has a 1 in 4 (some even say 1 in 3) chance of passing in the next four years.
and finally you say you are for "family values"... but when working families need help maintaining their quality of life, you say "every man for himself", and "f' you, your not my brother". whatever happened to hospitality or generosity? aren't those family values? do onto others as you would like them to do onto you? putting your country before self (your family)? Country First / Service to Country... what a joke. Blue collar Repubs are fighting against their own interests and it's sad.
