(Nothing Better to the Left of Me and Lame Ducks to the Right) Stuck in the Middle with You

Today’s question from the lemmings should be “why is there nothing at all in the Lemming House about the State of the Union speech from last night?” Yes this is a mainly political blog and yes I do love politics the way most men love sports, but every sport has the boring game and last night I knew was going to be the boring game of the political season. Few things are less fun than watching a desperate lame duck beg for a sixth change to get things right. I saw it last year and hate reruns.

This is a rant and not a review of the speech. I have not even read the text of last night’s SOTU address to be perfectly frank. I know what it will say already without wasting my time or brain cells. It will breakdown to something like:

Blah, blah blah Iraq is part of the war on terror blah blah blah 9/11 blah blah blah Osama blah blah blah looking forward to working with the Democrats blah blah blah cannot afford to lose blah blah blah sending more troops blah blah blah give me another chance please.

There will also be a few blames probably passed along to show that while he mouths the words that he is the one responsible, he still tells you ways it was not his fault and that the troops did not ask for enough or the Iraqis are not doing enough or the media is trying to make us lose or some new excuse. He probably told us more reasons he is getting rid of certain unalienable rights to protect our freedoms. Nothing protects freedom quite like taking it away from people.

“Why should terrorists have rights?”

Very simple to be honest- the rights we enjoy do not come from our government so they are not given only to Americans. The Constitution speaks of the accused having rights, not of citizens having rights. The rights we have are the same rights all people have only our government claims to respect the rights of all people. All people includes the accused and, if you look at the first ten amendments you will notice that most of those deal precisely with the rights of the accused and the methods allowed by the government to deal with them. At no point is the word “citizen” used so therefore it does not only apply to citizens.

Now do not think this is a Bush bashing piece because it is not. I have plenty of disillusionment to go around to both side. I did not listen to the Democrat’s response either because I already know what that is going to say as well and I have no desire to waste my time or brain cells on that tripe either.

Blah blah blah Bush lied blah blah blah Halliburton blah blah blah war for oil blah blah blah illegal blah blah blah quagmire blah blah blah civil rights blah blah blah

I looked at the Democrat’s 100 hour agenda and I did not see one thing that we elected them to do in it. I saw raising the minimum wage, insurance, something about a five day work week for congress (right…), but nothing about Iraq. Iraq is why they have the Congress today and they are doing a big nothing except trying their best to make us forget they voted for this war in the first place.

I am sorry, but if Bush lied, you chose to believe his word and not investigate so it is as much your fault as it is his. In fact, it is more your fault because he only asked for the keys to the kingdom and you gave them to him. I don’t blame the retarded kid who drove the car into a wall half as much as I blame the idiot who gave the retard the car keys. I do not blame the democrats for not having a better plan though because sometimes there just is not a good plan. The only way to fix Iraq is to build a “way back” machine and never go in the first place. I mean why were we gunning for guppies when there was a sea of sharks circling us?

78% of CNN respondents saw it as excellent.....

Rex,

I said "This is a rant and not a review of the speech. I have not even read the text of last night’s SOTU address to be perfectly frank."

I wonder what post YOU were reading....?!?


I did not watch it or the democrat response.

Kanrei said...

I would encourage you to read the whole thing I wrote Rex. You will see I am not Bush bashing alone. I am sick of both sides and both parties and will vote for every third party candidate I can in 08.

RexZeitgiest said...

All I want to know is who started the trend of "blah blah blah" in the current society.

Kanrei said...

I do not know who started that trend Var. I could have said "yatta yatta yatta" but I am not a Seinfeld fan.

Rex,
Never saw that. Not a Jim Carrey fan.

'Rex,

You didn't miss much.

Kanrei Me friend. You be making the mistake of looking at the government with logic and sesibility. Them things be diametrically opposed to what the Bush administration represent.

President Bush,,, An oxymoron methinks,
Sic the bunnies after him, yeah!

Kanrei said...

SM,
THat has been a steady obstacle in my life. I am forced to see the world through logical eyes and the world rarely acts logically. For example everyone said "Saddam is a liar and cannot be trusted" when he said he did not have any WMDs. Ok. He is a liar.

Then Saddam said he gave suicide bombers $25,000 and everyone said "See he supports terrorism!" I thought he was a liar and could not be trusted so why should I believe him when he says that? Logic. The world does not like or follow logic. In truth, it seems to do everything it can to avoid logic.
