I’ve been reading Hillbuzz for quite some time now. I don’t remember when I first stumbled across them, but I remember being very impressed when the mudslinging started against Sarah Palin and the guys over at Boystown stood up for her, I was equally impressed by their open letter to President Bush when he left office, part of which I’ll post here.
One of the reasons it’s been so hard to put together our thoughts on Bush as he leaves office is because, honestly, we feel badly about the way we’ve treated him, about the things we’ve said about him, all these years.
Because George W. Bush is a decent man with a servant’s heart who did the best damn job he could. He kept us safe for seven years. He stood up to the bullies and terrorists and scoundrels of the world and said with Texas gumption and flare that America under his watch would kowtow to NO ONE.
Maybe too much Texas for the likes of us city slickers, and maybe a lot of his personal style and flare was hokey or unrelatable to urban elites, but even his loudest critics would be hard-pressed to argue the man didn’t always show his heart — a larger than life heart, beating strongly with a love of country and its men and women in uniform.
These guys got it. Even though they stand on the other side of the political aisle, they got it and they understand. They see what has happened to their party and are embarrassed by it. Embarrassed by the thug tactics, the lies, and the outright arm twisting that went on to get Dr. Utopia elected. And then, they decided it was time to fight back by educating us conservatives on how they do things “The Chicago Way”. Tactics, battle plans, and behind the scenes information on how the left managed to get where they are.
Why? I don’t know. Maybe because they love Sarah Palin (they do, really). Maybe because they are pissed to see how HIllary was treated by the Dems (they are), or maybe it’s just because they want their Democrat party back. You know, the party of JFK that said “Ask not what your country can do for you…” which seems to be all the Dems have to say these days “We’re going to GIVE you healthcare…”.
Because of this, the Hillboys are under attack by the forces of darkness and evil (Kos is darkness, DU is evil; or vice versa).
The Daily Kos and Democratic Underground have outed Kevin Dujan as the owner of the blog, Hill Buzz. They are smearing him with the false charge that that he is a racist. They are urging their readers to destroy his career and attack him physically.
This is how the left works now and I’ve seen some statements from commenters on the right of “Well, when you lay down with dogs expect to get fleas”. Bullshit. To pull that kind of response of saying that because they are Democrats who worked on Hillary’s campaign means they deserve to be destroyed by the Kool-aid drinking Obambi left is crap. IF for some reason you are foolish enough to go with this thinking, then you would also think that a whistleblower like Bobby Boutris ‘deserved’ what he got for working for the FAA in the first place, right?
These guys are fighting to get their party back, just like we are fighting to get ours back too. We NEED two parties in this country, and two parties that represent the PEOPLE!! Attacks like this need to be exposed for what they are, cowardice in the highest form. The racist card is just the latest smear that is thrown out at anyone who disagrees and is the newest form of a blacklist for the left.
Why is the Kos and DU attacking them? To marginalize them. Hell, if I was running a campaign I would be calling these guys up and adding them to my staff PRONTO! Seriously, go read, they know the system and know how to work it.
They need our support. If you can, go hit their tip jar, read up and fight back, encourage Kevin to write his book (like Cynthia said) and buy it. Personally, I would LOVE it if he would offer a paper version as well through self publishing or a nice book deal.
I a straight-as-an-arrow, former military, Reagan Republican and I would be glad to take these guys out and buy them a beer. They are as patriotic and love this country as much as any of us on the right do and while we may not see eye to eye on some things, no one deserves to be attacked like this just because they don’t march in lock step to the Obama, or any other, drum.
In my joy for Scott Brown winning in Massachusetts there is also a cloud of sadness. Robert Parker, author of the ‘Spenser’ series of books that were later translated to the small screen in the show “Spenser for Hire” passed away yesterday in his home of an apparent heart attack.
I grew up reading the Spenser books. Spenser reminded me of my dad; tough but sensitive in the right ways. Thoughtful but never with the need to really explain his position because he knew the rightness of himself. Spenser helped me actually learn about my dad in many ways. My dad gave me the example of how to live and Spenser helped explain it.
My heart goes out to his wife Joan. To have been with someone for so long and then to have them not there. God bless and keep her at this time.
Strangely enough, I had just finished his Jessie Stone book “Night and Day” the same day he passed away. I will miss the adventures of Jessie, Spenser and Sunny, but not as much as Joan will miss the man who loved her above all else.
God bless you Robert, and you as well Joan.
Despite what Michael Moore implied in his film “Fahrenheit 9/11,” Congress did not base their 2002 authorization for the Iraq War solely on the premise that Saddam Hussein either had or was trying to acquire weapons of mass destruction. Their legislation reads very clearly that America’s purpose in sending troops back to Iraq was to enforce U.N. resolutions, some of which were violated in the 1990’s and probably should have been enforced by President Clinton. Whether actual weapons were found or not, the war in Iraq was legally and morally justifiable, and necessary.
In addition to enduring criticism for his war policies, millions of Americans demanded the new Obama administration prosecute Bush for his decision to indefinitely holding detainees charged with war crimes. When President Obama signed an executive order in May that reinforced that same Bush policy, the far left was mute.
Good stuff, all of it.
Well, today is the one year anniversary for TEH WON being in office, and what did the people of Massachusetts give him as a gift?? Scott Brown and his pickup truck, that’s what!
Seriously, I’ve been reading and hearing Democrats say “Oh, this isn’t about Obama at all. The voters are just mad at anyone who is in office right now.” Really?? Did you see the crowd at his rallies as compared to what Obama drew when he went down there to stump for Coakley?
The people are mad alright, they are mad at a government that has forgotten that they are there to represent US. The people are mad at a federal government that forgets that it was formed by an agreement between the states, not the other way around.
Blame Bush didn’t work. Calling us Teabaggers didn’t work. All the mud thrown by Olbermann and the rest of the left didn’t work. And now that it’s over the left has gone onto the next stage they always do when they don’t get what they want – they pout, they scream and they cry. The pathetic attitudes of the left are on full display.
Congratulations, Mr Brown. I hope you will always remember that it is indeed ‘The peoples seat” and will help bring some honor, humility, and decency back to the Senate for BOTH sides of the aisle.
Well, the sixties are back again only this time instead of kids named “Moonbeam” or “Flower” now we are going to have to deal with kids names Neytiri and Toruk.
MOVIE fans are rushing to name their babies after characters in sci-fi smash Avatar.
Choices include Neytiri – after the film’s Na’vi warrior-princess – and giant flying creature Toruk.
Another favourite is Pandora, name of the blockbuster flick’s fictional planet.
Add this to the people that are feeling depressed that the planet Pandora isn’t real
A user named Mike wrote on the fan Web site “Naviblue” that he contemplated suicide after seeing the movie.“Ever since I went to see ‘Avatar’ I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na’vi made me want to be one of them. I can’t stop thinking about all the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I got from it,” Mike posted. “I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the everything is the same as in ‘Avatar.’ “
Other fans have expressed feelings of disgust with the human race and disengagement with reality.
This kind of people really irritate and piss me off. Oh, the world isn’t fucking perfect and gee maybe if I off myself I can be reborn in a perfect world. Fine, go for it. Don’t try and improve the world around yourself by actually DOING something productive and positive. Don’t go and work with charities or even just assist your neighbor, no, that would be silly. Instead sit around on your ass surfing the internet and WISHING.
This is one of the huge differences I see between myself and my liberal co-workers. (Yes, I am using a specific example of something I have personally observed). The store gets trashed by moron customers who grab magazines, books and coffee and then leave their shit all over the place. They let their kids run rampant in the kids section and just throw everything on the floor and of course we have to clean it all up.
My liberal co-workers look at the mess and essentially give up “Oh, we’ll never get this done so why are we even bothering?” – yes, a direct quote. My attitude, and the attitude of my more conservative co-workers is more along the lines of “If we don’t do it, then how will it get any better on it’s own?”
The liberals say things like “We should tell the customers….” while we just dive in and work. They are all for telling someone else to do something “They should put their stuff away themselves” but we know that the idiots won’t do that so it’s up to us. We may not be able to change their minds, but we don’t have to live with their mess.
I see the same thing with the Avatar crap above.
The movie was so beautiful and it showed something we don’t have here on Earth
What?! We don’t have places of wonder and beauty on this planet??? Are you fucking kidding me? Jesus, turn on Discovery Channel sometime and you’ll see some of the most amazing places EVER and they are right here on good ol’ planet Earth. These whining douche-nozzles never seem to appreciate what they have right in front of them, always have to look around and find some reason to have cry baby fits over stupid shit. Grow the fuck up people!
In the sixties they would have all been smoking dope and hanging out in Berzerkly, now they smoke dope and hang out on internet chat forums. Fucking sad.
