Worst...video...ever.

I sure feel bad for those poor people in the video that have suffered for eight years, Matt!

Ugh.

On a good note, prices for Christmas gifts are fantastic this year!

Red Sox Fan said...

yeah, so am I...that's why we kicked his stupid ass out along with the rest of the republicans. Don't worry...we'll forget about Bush like we did that little new york thing in 20 years too :)

SC Cy said...

Come on, kicked him out or did his eight years run out? Granted, he would have had as much chance at re-election as you and I if he had the chance to run again...

I think it's funny Matt is bashing on Republicans when he is living in a state that is run by Republicans. And also Nebraska's economy is one of the few states that isn't in a recession and actually has a surplus of money.

SC Cy said...

It must be Ben Nelson...

;)

farmboy2376 said...

Yeah it's Ben Nelson, haha, the single Democrat that represents Nebraska in Washington. I will give him credit though, he was a great Governor and does a good job as our Senator. I have no gripes about him.

What a wonderfully propagandist video. Anytime that many celebrities are involved in something, I get worried.

'That little New York thing'?? I assume there was some sarcasm in that statement. Please tell me there was some sarcasm. Additionally, could you tie that statement with a rational thought on how it connects to the rest of your comment. Seriously, are you saying that Bush was responsible for 9-11?

PS: We get it, you are a Red Sucks fan. But you can at least capitalize New York.

Some idiots will believe whatever celebrities tell them to believe. Most of those celebs went to high school in a back of a f'ing trailor and have 0 knowledge of actual reality.

I do give Bush credit for one thing: having enough balls to confront terrorism. I may not agree with the way he went about it, but that's something that should have happened under the Clinton administration when we had terror attack after terror attack overseas. The Sudanese even gave Osama to us on a silver platter, shame on Bill Clinton for not having the testicular fortitude to take him down then.

That said, Bush and his administration have been terrible over the past 8 years. He's nowhere close to being a conservative. Spending money like a drunken sailor, failing to address illegal immigration, failing to seal our borders, trying to sell our ports to the Saudies. Horrible.

But for those of you who believe that Obama is going to save us, you better get your heads checked. That man isn't even qualified to be a CEO of a medium-sized company. The man wants to raise taxes on businesses and the wealthy in a recession? That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. That's economics 101, brother. He wants to socialize healthcare? That's even more dumb. You think America is having economic problems now? Try paying for socialized healthcare for nearly all Americans. He wants to reenact the Fairness Doctrine and severely cripple the right to gun ownership. Yet millions of uneducated morons just eat it up. After all, an Obama-led government is going to provide even more for them. You thought Bush didn't give a f*ck about the constitution, just wait for the next 4 years!

I'm neither Republican or Democrat, I am a Libertarian. The smaller the government, the better off we are. Sadly, Americans today are unwilling to accept personal responsibility. They let these corrupt government officials burn their tax dollars as long as they promise to "make it easier". Clinton expanded the government to a scary level. Bush II came along and blew the doors off it. Obama is going to take big government to a level that has never be seen before...or probably will again in America.

America is failing. Don't be a moron and play the R vs. D game. They are the reason we are falling. It's not just the Republicans, it's not just the Democrats, it's both of them.

sublime_fan27,

Well said. That was a great post.

Until the government gets out of our lives and is as minimal as possible our country will continue to struggle. Quit bailing out companies. Socialism is not the answer, it's never worked and it never will.

farmboy2376 said...

And no one should ever forget about 9-11. The day that's forgotten about will be the day the terrorist win.

SC Cy said...

Another thing people seem to forget is there hasn't been an attack on US soil since 9-11. Good news just isn't as juicy as negative pieces.

Red Sox Fan said...

The 9-11 line is from an arguement that SC Cy and I had a few weeks ago at a bar.

He can explain it as it's not something I think he can defend :)

SC Cy said...

What is there to defend? To defend something would mean there is a gray area or an area of debate. There hasn't been a terrorist attack in the US in seven years.

Red Sox Fan said...

No, your line about what we will forget in 20 years

Josh said...

Take about some A list celebs ..

I thought Macy Gray died years ago.

beav said...

If you haven't noticed.......Terrorists take their time when it comes to these attacks. Starting a preemptive war in the middle east is dumb. The whole notion that democracy will somehow spread from Islamic state to Islamic state is even dumber. What we have done is equivalent to taking out a hornets nest by slamming it with an aluminum bat. The result is a swarms of hornets(terrorists) throughout the middle east. In the process, we spend trillions, borrow trillions from China, while at the same time not protecting our borders or ports.

In other words, this neoconservative foreign policy is about as smart as drinking your own pee.

Ben said...

Yeah, let's leave it to Beav, and talk to the terrorists real sternly about the brotherhood of man and crap like that. If the little dears insist on continuing to kill people, let's maybe arrest them. Yeah, that'll do the trick.

Sheesh. Idiocy on stilts.

Love the propaganda video, though. It has a nice Jim Jones vibe to it. Question: Did Obama supporters vote for a candidate, or just join a really creepy cult?

beav said...

No where in your response did you accurately represent my position. I said that what we have been do the past 7 years has not been working. I say root out and eliminate the terrorists. But there is one problem, the terrorists who attacked us on 9-11 were Saudis that trained in Afganistan. Rather than being sidetracked in Iraq, we needed to eliminate the terrorist threat along the Afganistan/Pakistan border. Remember, we were not attacked by Iraq. There was not Al Qaeda in Iraq before we attacked it. Most rational people would come to the conclusion that we should focus on where the terrorists live. This is not abstract thinking here.......just common sense. However, if this is too difficult for some to understand...........

Ah, so it’s not that you are actually against taking a bat to the hornet’s nest, it’s just that you want to quibble over what part of the nest we hit.

This is a perfect example of the incoherence of the left on this issue. We are not at war with a specific terrorist organization; we are at war with an extremist ideology. Mumbai, Beslan, Bali, Tanzania, the shoe bomber, the various plots broken up in the U.S., Britain, Canada, Germany, Spain -- These were not all the work of al Qaeda. But the perpetrators do all share the same nihilistic, religio-extremist ideological roots.

We can debate whether we should have invaded Iraq or not or to what extent Saddam was supporting extremists before the war, but the bottom line is this: Once we were in, we had to win. If we had said, "Oops, our mistake. We'll go home and leave you to your civil war," who wins in that scenario? Who loses? On the other hand, who wins and loses from a quasi-stable, somewhat-democratic Iraq?

Terrorists -- or any enemy, for that matter -- are emboldened by weakness and failure. Like it or not, our national prestige is on the line in Afghanistan and Iraq, and failure will cost us dearly, just as our earlier capitulation in Somalia convinced Osama bin Laden we were "paper tigers" incapable of sustaining a fight.

There are few times in geopolitics when the choice is between good and bad. Usually, it's a choice between bad and much, much worse. Our failing in Iraq would be a boon to the forces of extremism. Succeeding in Iraq will be a loss for the extremists and embolden democratic activists in the region. This one is a no-brainer.

SC Cy said...

Beav...the 9-11 terrorists trained in the U.S. of A. my man. They actually had flight schools in our country.

What we have been doing the past seven years HASN'T been working? Soooo...you WANT more terrorist attacks on our country?

Red Sox Fan said...

All of you....shut up and argue sports....it was fine for a little bit but now you are sounding like bickering children.

farmboy2376 said...

Matt,

why are you telling people to "shut up"? You can't handle the truth? You're the one that started the political blog. If you don't like discussing it, don't open up a blog about it.

Red Sox Fan said...

I posted a video about Obama. I didn't say anything until a certain person who I know posted something. Thus I was talking to him...you guys were fine for a little bit but it's time to let it go.

sublime_fan27 said...

"Shut up and argue sports".

Wow, what a great comment. I wish you would do the same. You know less about politics than you do about sports.

You're just another hack who doesn't know apples from wolverines. You will believe whatever the media tells you to believe. Your just as bad as the Bushbots. "Hope". "Change". Haha, get real!

Ben said...

Oh, this is rich. So Matt the Dumbass posts a propaganda video for Dear Leader, but that doesn't count as political.

Then he posts a note on the public comment thread, but it also doesn't count because it was directed to a "certain person who I know." Ever heard of e-mail?

People who don't know what the hell they are talking about always want to change the subject, but the blatant hypocrisy here is what really takes the cake.
