That Sense of Victimhood

Former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice is on target with the statement below. This victimology thinking continues to have a hold on too many brains today. There are folks in this country who continue to cry affliction and persecution and are very vocal about entitlement. No one owes you or me anything. Entitlement! As Dr. Rice says, “…you still won’t have a job.” Employment in the long run is the best for anyone’s life over an entitlement.

Thanking the Super Linemen

Gary Varvel_super linemenGary Varvel Cartoon

Many of us, including my household dealt with the loss of power in the last 2 months due to a very rough record-breaking winter. I want to thank the linemen everywhere who spend so many hours in the snow and ice repairing the electrical lines so we can get our power back. Again thank you so much! As this Varvel editorial cartoon depicts, you are all Superman.

Hearing From Zo Again and My Thoughts on Bill Maher

Time to hear from Zo again!

There are many people out there who really think that Bill Maher is fantastic. There was a time when I enjoyed him. These days, he grows more and more disgusting. I attempt to watch him if interesting conservatives are on his show, Real Time on HBO. I remember watching when the late conservative Andrew Breitbart was a panelist a couple of times. He did a good job of holding his own against other liberal panelists and Bill Maher.

Mr. Maher is a self admitted drug user. To me, he was not despicable in the early days when his program had the title, Politically Incorrect on the Comedy Channel as he is today on Real Time. Even with conservative guests, many times I have to turn away from Mr. Maher due to his increasingly over the top foul language. There is such a depravity in his expressed thoughts! Does anyone believe that his drug use does not contribute to his state of mind while doing his Real Time cable TV show?

Let’s Hear It from Zo Again and More

Zo (AlfonZo) Rachel tells it like it is. If you are a Democrat, and/or on the liberal leftist side of things, or you are a black person who is personally socially conservative, but just does not get it when it comes to black conservative Republicans such as Herman Cain and sees the Republican Party as the enemy, watch these Macho Sauce and Pajamas Media videos to get a clue. Listen to Zo on some of the GOP presidential candidates and Anderson Cooper. And again to those who believe blacks will vote for a black just because the candidate is black, the vilification of Herman Cain by noted blacks is proof in part that you believe wrong.

I remember when I started getting a clue about what a conservative Republican believed through a black conservative blogger and then through columns and blogs of such folks as Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin. Conservatives such as the late Rev. Jerry Falwell, the late Tony Snow, Star Parker, and Dr. Walter Williams going back and forth with liberal challengers on TV news programming and talk radio pretty much brought me over to the conservative side.

The Republican Debate on MSNBC

I watched the Republican presidential candidate debate last night on MSNBC. I agree with some of the political pundits on TV, bloggers and columnists who said that Gov. Rick Perry was not that strong. For me this is the first time Mitt Romney stood ahead of the pack in the debates. I also agree with what I am reading about Michele Bachmann peeking. She did not come off as stellar as she has in the previous debates. I agree with what I am hearing and reading today, that the Republican presidential candidates race pretty much comes down to Gov. Perry and former Gov. Romney.

Of course, Newt Gingrich was great. His debate performances are always excellent, but like I said before, nobody seems to be listening. I love my former Senator, Rick Santorum, but generally, the Republicans and GOP sided Independents are not taking him seriously.

Herman Cain is good, but I can’t consider him. He needs to run for a national office from Georgia and win. I remember at the previous CNN Republican debate, some one asked him if he would hire someone for a top position without any experience. I feel the top position of President of this country requires previous electoral experience and Herman Cain has zero.

Jon Huntsmen came off a bit improved than the last debate, but I am not liking him all that much. And I am trying to see what the attraction is with libertarian/Republican Ron Paul, but not feeling it. The reason could be that I am just not into the total libertarian approach to life. Some aspects of libertarianism go against my Christ centered outlook.

Well, MSNBC saw some of its best ratings ever. And to think that was due to Republicans! In hearing the analysis from various MSNBC anchors, news analysts and contributors, the majority went with John Huntsmen who is the most moderate/liberal out of the Republican presidential candidates. That figures! During my Democrat years, I would sometimes give my vote to the moderate/liberal Republican. Former Republican Senator, Arlen Specter was the one Republican who continually got my then Democratic vote. Of course, after crossing over and moving on in conservatism, I saw the Sen. Specter in a completely different (negative) light.

Even though I am not into Herman Cain being President, I am a fan. I leave you with him successfully taking on the leftist MSNBC round-table right after the debate.
