Advice for the President

CNN.com – Your e-mails: Advice for the president – Nov 2, 2005

I was reading this CNN article, curious as to what kind of advice people would give, and I ran across this little gem:

None. I think he is doing a wonderful job and smiling the entire way. Who protected our country after September 11? Who protects our country today? I think the Democrats should look at their own party that is where the problems lie. There is nothing they can do to discourage our party. Nothing. We are all smiling.
Berenice Milligan, Louisville, Kentucky

Isn’t this just the picture of a kool-aid drinking neocon? How on earth could anyone at this point think that Bush is doing a great job? I’m sorry, but you have to be just utterly brainwashed to believe this nonsense at this point. This belief just totally and completely boggles my mind.

I’m hearing people finally waking up to the reality of the situation, and it’s very good. The other day, a caller called in to, I think, the Ed Schulz show and laid out the whole situation with Bush. He said something like, “So Bush manufactured evidence for going into war with Iraq, and lied to the American people about it. Why are we talking about who is going to be the next Supreme Court nominee? Why aren’t we drawing up articles of impeachment right now?” I have been thinking this very thing for 3 years now! It’s very refreshing that people are finally waking up! Let’s hope more of them do.

That’s it

They just don’t get it. I’m done conversing with neocons. I just don’t want to. I don’t feel I would be engaging in a “healthy debate” with them. As I said in my earlier post, I care nothing for thier hateful opinion. I don’t even want to waste my time arguing with them. Some woman just left a comment (that I decided not to post) that prattled on and on about how she felt sorry for the parents and, again, Micheal Shiavo and Judge Greer are evil, etc. And then at the end she told me that “if I want to be taken more seriously I should check my blog posts for spelling errors.” Little word to the wise. If you want your comment on this blog, don’t give me advice that I don’t ask for. And if you don’t like my spelling errors, go somewhere else. I’m not here to try to win anyone over. I’m not here to debate issues. This blog is my venting space. And there are spelling errors. And there will be spelling errors until WordPress decides to package a spell check with thier product, okay? I have a feeling, Laura, that you wouldn’t take me seriously, regardless of what I have to say.

God, I wish these neocons would stop trolling liberal blogs…Why do they think we want thier little two cents? Why do they spend thier time reading our stuff? I certainly don’t spend my time surfing the web looking for what the neocon opinion is on a subject…weird.

Conservatives claimed that liberals want Schiavo dead

Conservatives claimed that liberals “want” Schi … [Media Matters for America]

In discussing the Terri Schiavo case, several prominent media conservatives have accused liberals of wanting Schiavo to die and have imputed motives to them far beyond the belief, expressed by many liberals, that the courts were right to allow Schiavo’s husband to make end-of-life decisions on behalf of his wife.

Syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested that liberals “want this woman to die because Christian conservatives want her to live,” calling it “payback.” MSNBC host Joe Scarborough mused aloud about whether liberals “hate George Bush so much that they are cheering for Terri’s death only because the president of the United States and his brother are fighting for Terri’s life.” Wall Street Journal contributing editor Peggy Noonan claimed that the “pull-the-tube people” — she specifically named CNN Crossfire host James Carville and the website Democratic Underground — are “committed” to Schiavo’s death. Fox News host Bill O’Reilly singled out New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd and Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, stating, “I don’t know why some of these left-wing columnists want her to die.”

Etc., Etc.

I want Schiavo to die. But not because I want “payback’ or because I “hate the right-wing”. That’s stupid. It’s more than stupid. It’s retarded. I want her to die because I want her suffering to be over. Or maybe she isn’t suffering now, I don’t know, I’m not a doctor. I guess I think it’s her time to go. But to be perfectly honest, I agree with Annatopia . It’s really none of our business. And the thing that pisses me off about this situation is that, somehow, it has become our business. This should be a private, family matter.

The right-wing pundits think too highly of themselves. I’ve heard Micheal Savage say similar things, that liberals actually want death (in his example it was the soilders dying in Iraq) so that we can prove our point to the right-wingnuts. In reality I care nothing for these people and thier opinion. However, I am forced to deal with it because we have these people running our country and our media right now. And I speak up because thier beliefs are detrimental to our society. But my reaction has nothing to do with my counter-argument. No, my reaction is more of a disgust of what continually comes out of their mouth.

Disturbing

Here are a couple of comments that I just recieved regarding my opinion on the Terri Schiavo Case.
From Enki:

The man Michael is a murderer, a clever executor who has diverted what he has to have hidden to cast into the hot issues where the bunch of idiotic lawyers and judges have spent their time to accumulate the times to be paid, togather with the hypocrate medical experts to enhance their reputation to charge their ridiculous medical bills or fees.

He goes on and on in this vein.

And from Gianna:

I feel sorry for all of you. You have no values, or morals. It is a shame that there will be no afterlife for you. Repulicans are at least trying to do the right thing by God. All of you are probably Homosexual. (I’m right)

I am disturbed. Last weekend some neo-con wanted to “pull my plug.” It’s sick that you people act all high and mighy and claim to be Christian. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Gianna, how dare you pass judgement on me! You are telling me that I’m going to hell because I think Terri should die in peace and go to her maker in peace? I lack morals because I think it is only fair and right that HER WISHES (not the wishes of her parents and all of the crazy-ass neocons) be carried out? How is that lacking values? We all die..It’s a fact of life. It’s how God made us. Oh, and your calling me a homosexual isn’t an insult. Why on earth would you choose that word to insult me, though. Hmmm…I wonder. Could it be because you are a little repressed there? You might want to go figure that shit out.

And Enki, Your comment was, for the most part, incomprehensible. But there were a couple of things there that I want to address. To all of you crazy, stupid, fox-watching sheep out there: MICHEAL SHIAVO IS NOT A MURDERER! Good God! how did it get to be this bad? How did these stupid neocons move into this realm? So now, anyone who has to make these desicions about thier loved ones are murderers? It just completely blows my mind…I don’t even know how to respond to that. I don’t know, I guess I just deal with smart people all day and to come across people so fucking stupid just throws me for a loop. Enki, and all of you brain-washed sheeple, use some fucking logic. And the judges are just doing their job, okay? And thank God they are! Otherwise, we would truly be living in a fascist state. It’s called CHECKS AND BALANCES. Go read a little bit about the constitution. You might learn a thing or two.

This is a good message for liberals

President George W. Bush and Speaker of the Ho...

Here is a snip from something the Moore quoted that I think is totally right-on:

Watch Dan Rather apologize for not getting his facts straight, humiliated before the eyes of America, voluntarily undermining his credibility and career of over thirty years. Observe Donna Brazille squirm as she is ridiculed by Bay Buchanan, and pronounced irrelevant and nearly non-existent. Listen as Donna and Nancy Pelosi and Senator Charles Schumer take to the airwaves saying that they have to go back to the drawing board and learn from their mistakes and try to be better, more likable, more appealing, have a stronger message, speak to morality. Watch them awkwardly quote the bible, trying to speak the ‘new’ language of America. Surf the blogs, and read the comments of dismayed, discombobulated, confused individuals trying to figure out what they did wrong. Hear the cacophony of voices, crying out, “Why did they beat me?”

And then ask anyone who has ever worked in a domestic violence shelter if they have heard this before.

They will tell you: Every single day.

The answer is quite simple. They beat us because they are abusers. We can call it hate. We can call it fear. We can say it is unfair. But we are looped into the cycle of violence, and we need to start calling the dominating side what they are: abusive. And we need to recognize that we are the victims of verbal, mental, and even, in the case of Iraq, physical violence.

As victims we can’t stop asking ourselves what we did wrong. We can’t seem to grasp that they will keep hitting us and beating us as long as we keep sticking around and asking ourselves what we are doing to deserve the beating.

From my own personal experience with neo-conservatives, I find this assessment boiled down very well. These people are abusers.

I realized months ago that you walk away. You can’t reason with these people. They don’t care about you. They don’t care about what you think . They don’t respect your beliefs. They will walk all over you, harrass you every chance they can. They will not reason with you. So you walk away, and become a force to be reckoned with.
