Mr. Orwell, Call Your Office

May 27, 2008

From today’s Wall Street Journal Opinion Page (www.opinionjournal.com):

In “1984,” George Orwell famously created Newspeak, “the only language in the world whose vocabulary gets smaller every year.” How things haven’t changed. The Homeland Security memo begins by declaring that “Words matter,” whereupon it proceeds to suggest that some words matter so much it’s best not to use them at all.

  • the word Islamic is out because it potentially “[concedes] the terrorists’ claims that they are legitimate adherents of Islam.”
  • Use of the word jihad is said to “glamorize terrorism.”
  • Islamist – a neutral and broadly accepted term for those who espouse Islam as a political system – is frowned upon because “the general public . . . may not appreciate the academic distinction between Islamism and Islam.”

AND…

In its most eye-catching recommendation (which goes strangely unmentioned in an Associated Press story about the memo), the DHS authors explain their preference for the word “progress” over “liberty.”

‘The struggle is for ‘progress,’ over which no nation has a monopoly,” reads the memo. “The experts we consulted debated the word ‘liberty,’ but rejected it because many around the world would discount the term as a buzzword for American hegemony. But all people want to support ‘progress,’ which emphasizes that there is a path for building strong families and prosperity among the current dislocations of globalization and change. And progress is precisely what the terrorists oppose through their violent tactics and through their efforts to impose a totalitarian world view.”

WTF?!?!?!?!?!  Its a struggle now, not a war?  Why didn’t somebody tell me?  The loony left keep telling us were at WAR.  And now it is a war on terr…  “struggle” for progress?  And we are calling it this because we are afraid we might offend the very people who are trying to kill us and whom we are trying to kill right back?

Check me if I’m wrong there slick, but I never saw any mention of “progress” in the Declaration of Independence, but I can see the words “liberty” and “security” in there.  I never read the word “progress” in the Constitution of the United States of America (you remember – the one YOU SWORE TO SUPPORT AND DEFEND against all enemies, foreign and domestic?).  Nope – no mention of “progress” in there.  But I sure as hell can read the words “justice” and “security” right in the pre-amble.  You don’t even have to dig deep.

“It seems to have escaped the authors’ notice that the most formidable totalitarian movement of the 20th century – communism – was, by its own lights, “progressive.” It seems to have escaped their notice that the essence of a totalitarian system is the denial of liberty (often in the name of progress). It seems to have escaped their notice that “progress” is a word that signifies nothing. Exactly what is one progressing to?”

We now have proof (in their own documentation) of unelected heads of governmental departments worshipping so blindly at the altar of political correctness that they are obfuscating the reasons we are at war and the very real, cataclysmic consequences – not just to the U.S. but to the entire enlightened world – of losing that war.

How these people remain in office, as well as tar- and feather-free is beyond comprehension…

OK, One More News Item This Morning…

May 27, 2008

Is Oprah Suffering Obama Backlash? Winfrey’s endorsement of Barack Obama may be behind some of the decline in her core, many of whom continue to back Hillary Clinton.”

Bwaaahaaahaaahaaa!  Freakin’ Liberals are a comedy troupe.  Seriously, the writers for SNL couldn’t make this shit up.

A liberal backing either candidate is in a no-win situation.

Vote for her – “You’re a RACIST!!!!”

Vote for him – “You’re a MYSOGYNIST!!!!”

Heh.

From Fox News: French Skydiver’s Balloon Takes Off Without Him

NORTH BATTLEFORD, Saskatchewan —  A French skydiver’s hope to set a new free-fall record might have come to an end on Tuesday when his ride to the sky left without him.

Man, I wonder if he got his balloon from the ACME catalogue?

Fuck You Hussein Obama

May 21, 2008

From a Barack Hussein Obama speech 4 days ago…

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.

“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.

WTF, Over?!?!?!?!  We now have to make sure it is OK with other countries before we eat?  Fuck you you socialist piece of pandering shit.  And fuck those other counteries too.  Let’s all beat up America some more because we are all jealous of her prosperity (or in your case, asshole, embarrassed and ashamed by it).  This guy seriously wants to be  President of the United States of America!?!?!?!?  Not that the other two shitheads in the race are any better.

I find it funny (and somewhat disturbing at the same time) that my spell checker doesn’t recognize any of his three mooslim names.  And just for that quote of his above, I just turned my thermostat down to 68.  Now I am off to Burger King in my Hummer.  Jerkoff.

Your Goobermint At Work

May 21, 2008

From the Knox County Times:  Legislature preserves nonexistent $71,000 job: AUGUSTA (May 18): Patrick Dostie, the state’s nuclear safety inspector, has been coming to work every day to a job he’s held since 1989 — even though the position was eliminated in 2005 by the Legislature.

When it comes to goobermint, more is better…right?

Don’t think this can happen in your state or at the national level?  Think again.

After reading this, I so can’t wait for Bronco Bomber or Shrillary or McDoucheBag to bring us nationalized (read: SOCIALIZED) medicine…
