Back on LJ for the Next Election... [Aug. 20th, 2008|11:56 am]
Dave
Excerpt from Online Article:

"Let me be clear: I will let no one question my love of this country," Obama said to applause.

McCain stood before the same audience a day earlier and said Obama "tried to legislate failure" in the Iraq war and had put his ambition to be president above the interests of the United States. He said the Illinois senator did this by pushing for a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from Iraq and by voting in the Senate against a major appropriations bill to help fund the troop increase.

Responding to Obama's comments, McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds said: "Barack Obama has made it clear that unconditional withdrawal in Iraq is more important to him than victory in Iraq. That's not a criticism of his patriotism, that's a criticism of his judgment."

A decorated Vietnam war veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Arizona Sen. McCain has sharply questioned whether the 47-year-old Obama has the experience and character necessary to serve as commander in chief.

Your Christmas is Most Like: A Very Brady Christmas

For you, it's all about sharing times with family.
Even if you all get a bit cheesy at times.

NEWSWEEK: In public and private statements, Scowcroft has been deeply skeptical of the dream of the neoconservatives to bring democracy to the Middle East. Scowcroft consistently and openly warned that invading Iraq would not herald a new age of freedom in the region but rather inflame old sectarian passions. Better, Scowcroft urged, to aim for policies that would promote stability in the region. Those policies might keep despots in power, but they would at least keep the region from exploding into violence that could cut off America's vital pipeline to Middle East oil and create generations of resentments that could breed more terrorists.

I think our friendly relationships with despots in order to keep our oil flow going also incites resentment towards us. After all, most of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. Appeasing despots is a false stability that only exists on the surface, but generates underlying hatred towards the US. Generation upon generation of Arabs are already indoctrinated with hate against Jews and the United States of America. Appeasing dictators for the sake of "stability" for a reliant oil supply will not solve this problem. The transition to democracy in the Middle East may be violent at times, but so was our own in the US. The so called stability of brutal regimes ruling the Middle East is also violent and only perpetuating terrorism.

NEWSWEEK: To the neocon faithful who shaped Bush 43's world view after 9/11, Baker is often depicted as a creature of Washington who favors compromise over conviction. For the record, Baker mostly makes jokes about his cautious approach when it comes to the use of force. "I used to get asked why I didn't want to push on to Baghdad [in the 1991 gulf war]," Baker likes to say. "I don't get asked that question much anymore."

My Response to the President of Iran's Open Letter to the American People [Nov. 29th, 2006|08:03 pm]
Dave
Dear President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,

I am forced to question the sincerity of your open letter to the people of the United States of America. If what you say in this letter is true, then why do you support the aggressive actions of Hezbollah and Hamas? Why do you perpetuate violence in Iraq? I think you forgot to write your true feelings of "Death to America" somewhere in your letter. I think you forgot to mention that you deny the Holocaust ever occurred. The USA is an imperfect nation, but we are forced into action by the extremely violent, uncompromising, and relentless assault by terrorists and fascists throughout the world. You criticize our so called "diminishing of civil liberties" while offering your citizens restricted freedom of speech and gender inequality among other human rights violations. I am not blind to the rising and continuing threat that Islamic-fascism poses to me, my family, friends, neighbors, country, and the world. You have not addressed the true intentions of your nuclear program. You are not being fully honest and are in fact deceptive. This is a personal matter for me, and you will have to do better than that, I can see through your rhetoric.

You scored as C.G. Jung. You are more of a spiritualist than would be immediately apparent. Some of your notions are questioned by the cynical, but deep down you know the human consciousness is more than the flesh and tissue can account for. You tend to take a scientific observationist look on matters the average person wouldn't even begin to analyze. You personally are responsible for most of the ideas that are floating around in modern psychologist's/psychic's paltry little skulls. On the down side, you tend to be associated with that asshole Freud.

A Victory for Freedom [Nov. 9th, 2006|05:11 am]
Dave
Well, the Democrats took control of both the House and the Senate tuesday. At least our electorate has the ability to self-correct itself every once and awhile. The Republicans made enough mistakes to not earn back a majority in Congress. The Dems now have enough power to cause some trouble and/or hopefully get some positive things accomplished. We shall see. I hope anyone reading this who is an eligible voter participated in this election, there were some seriously narrow margins of victory. If you aren't registered yet, I suggest you do for the 2008 election. I can't understand being apathetic, but apparently some people are.
