The Tea Party Republicans in Washington claim they’re concerned about the budget balance, but it’s a disguise! It’s not true! It’s a lie! That’s not what they want. They want — they want other people not to be able to have their own opinions. They don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution! But we’ll give them to them anyway. – Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)
I get pretty rabid out here at times. And I usually hold no quarter for liberals despite the whiny gripes of moderates and liberals who ask me to “tone it down” because they don’t want to hear the harsh rhetoric.
Of course they forget, this blog is The Rabid Conservative. But hey, I figure if I speak the way most liberals do, perhaps they’ll understand, right?
Nah, I didn’t think so either.
At least I’ve never elected to say that some Americans, even the liberal ones, didn’t deserve the freedoms and liberties that I enjoy.
So anyway, take this crumb-cake, Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey making the crazy statement that makes one wonder if he wasn’t drunk, stoned, or just completely stupid when saying. If New Jersey has the shape of a boot, then Lautenberg, based on his latest comment, is the fungus under the toenail.
So he had the audacity to say that Tea Party Republicans didn’t “deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution”.
So, who died and made you a Founding Father, you jerk? I’m sure there are tea-partiers all over the state of New Jersey who you just slighted with your off-the-wall comment, saying they don’t deserve the freedoms that are in the Constitution. They deserve them as much as you do. And I’m exercising them right now, beginning with the freedom of speech.
He went on to say, “But we’ll give them to them anyway.”
Oh, thanks be to the all-mighty Frank Lautenberg, the one who now bestows rights on us lowly Americans. Oh, as if he had any say in the matter.
What a clown. How does Gov. Christie put up with having a doofus like him in his state anyway?
I’m going to go pray to the One who bestows rights to people now, in penance for my rabid attitude another expression of my Constitutional liberty, and not just because you give me license, Frankie-boy.
The NH Supreme court ruled on March 16th that a child would be required to be taken out of her home school, a school which she doesn’t want to leave, and be put into public school because the child was not given the opportunity to explore other points of view, other than her religious beliefs.
It doesn’t matter that the kid is ahead of her peers academically or that the kid doesn’t want to go to public school. No, because she has adamant religious beliefs, the State has concluded that she isn’t open-minded enough and that the public school is required to remedy that, a position that the non-custodial father agrees with.
Now this statement is really more subtle from the NH Supremes because it was a lower court decision being upheld by the NH Supreme Court. And the NH Supreme Court decided that because it’s a parent-vs-parent squabble, they would avoid the whole homeschooling point. But the case is all about whether the child is to be forced into a public school setting against her wishes.
The New Hampshire Supreme Court is clearly overstepping its bounds in this case. It is not up to the state to determine whether a kid is being exposed to this view or that. It’s up to the parents to decide the educational future of the child. And while I believe the father does get a legal say in it, really, it’s not up to him, since it’s mom that has custody.
Again, did we mention, the kid academically superior and socially interactive (a too-common and ignorant myth made about homeschoolers). But because she has a religious opinion and is vehemently adamant about it, she is punished by a society that, once again, has it in for homeschoolers.
Of course, the liberal ignoramuses in New Hampshire can’t accept that because liberals believe in using the powers of the State to get what they want, rather than deferring to the correct authority – the parent.
Another reason why I think all liberals should just take a long walk off a short pier. When they lose in the marketplace of ideas, they use the government to coerce people into getting their way and then claim victory in the name of liberalism.
One of the comments to this article asked the question, “well, why doesn’t mom and kid move to a state that is more friendly towards homeschool”.
The answer, actually is that if mom attempted to do that, there is precedent that could cost mom the rights, particularly in the socially liberal state of New Hampshire. The story of Lisa Miller’s fight to keep her daughter from her former lesbian lover Janet Jenkins comes to mind. At present, Lisa Miller is missing, probably out of the country, since Vermont ordered that Ms. Miller surrender her daughter to Jenkins, a woman who is not her parent, both legally and biologically, yet has managed to gain custody because of the so-called gay rights sentiment in Vermont.
My guess is that if this parent attempted to flee, she would lose custody of her child.
Basically, in reading the Court’s opinion, Dad became discontented because he wasn’t getting enough time with his daughter, and because his little girl wasn’t integrating with his family situation, given that he had remarried and had another child by her. Because the kid objects to his behavior, she is being messed up by mom and her church.
I’m telling you, this kid is going to grow up hating her father and maybe her mother in a few years – she’s 12 or 13 now. In just five years, the kid is going to resent them for all of this. It’s in these cases that the child is completely powerless. I really hate these kinds of stories.
The thing is, the kid doesn’t want to be in public school, so what is that going to do to her grades? She’s not going to associate with kids in her school. She’s probably going to rebel and what will happen then? Kid will probably end up suspended.
And all because Daddy can’t handle the fact that daughter has an opinion that differs from his and his childish pride can’t accept that.
First, the Brits decided that flying into Libya to create a no-fly zone was the best way to begin to deal with the latest Kaddafi flare-up, ObamAd Inc shows pure indecisiveness, dithering, and a complete inability to lead. Obama and DoD is sending out confusing signals about what they actually want to do. Do we really want to get rid of Kaddafi or not?
I like Donald Trump’s idea – surgical strike. Here’s a link to the video where he talks about a few other things, like Birthers, Sheen, and the other GOP candidates, as well as a call to dropping a bomb on Colonel Kaddafi.
(after all, if he can’t get a promotion after, what 30-40 years in the military that he runs, perhaps he should be carpet bombed, right?)
And then, we get this news: the Brits decide to cut taxes in order to spur on their economy. This is something that ObamAd, Inc can’t see through their stupid, idealistic, so-called progressivism. Someone in the British government got the idea that if you want economy to flow, then stop standing in the way of those people who move the economy, who buy and sell.
Reducing government waste spending increases economy because it puts more money back into the hands of the people who buy and sell.
The thing is, while the progressives want economic recovery, they want to divest the rich of their affluence and distribute it to those that they believe should have it. Never mind the fundamental right to property and actually keeping what one earns, dangerous hack-tivist organizations like SEIU are now plotting actions intended to disrupt the American economy and generally try to undermine the capitalistic system on which America operates. People like that corpulent sorry excuse for a movie maker, Michael Moore showing up in Wisconsin and pontificating how the rich don’t actually own their wealth, but rather, it belongs to “all of us” while he sits on a mondo pile of cash of his own. I didn’t see him handing out duckets to those in the Union halls who could use a leg up to defend their cause. No, he spends his time playing both sides against the middle and taking the whopping checks to the bank, like the fat greedy capitalist pig that he preaches against.
Folks, as rabid conservatives, we know all about this stuff. We know all about Obama’s impotence, SEIU’s evil scheming, and Michael Moore’s massive waist line that is only overshadowed by his hypocrisy.
So what do we do about it?
We keep talking to those people that matter. Not our congressional leaders or the so-called movers and shakers, but the real people that matter, namely those people on the other side of five-foot privacy fence. We need to keep talking to each other, blogging, recording, going to meetings, and making a difference.
Finally, I’ve been asked a couple of times what I thought about a Donald Trump run for President. You know, I’ve always thought Trump to be, despite his success, a jerk at times. Perhaps that’s bias because the man has more decisiveness in his left pinkie than I do and that sometimes bugs me. But the man has a lot of good insight on American greatness and what it’s going to take to get that back. I’m liking his straight-talk ideas on the economy. He’s not a politician, and I am thinking we need an anti-politician in the White House.
Stay rabid, my friends. 2012 will be here before you know it.
1) So, to start, I tell a tale of two kids – one with a mom who will probably teach her the entitlement activity and one kid with the can-do entrepreneurial spirit that is about as American
A woman sues her kid’s pre-school after less than a month because the school “did not do enough to prep the kid for her Ivy League future”. The tuition, which the school told her was non-refundable, was $19,000. Really, like the kid’s future was going to be decided by how the kid finger-painted or what block she stacked on another.
Or maybe she is destined for Ivy League, as they’re full of whiny liberals seeking entitlement anyway.
Sounds like to me a good old fashioned case of buyer’s remorse.
Meanwhile, this kid is going places. 13 year old Hart Main created a business selling scented candles, man-scented candles. He got to thinking that there were no man-smelling candles after making fun of his sister’s girlie candle sales. The scents – Gear Head, Fresh Mitt, New York Pizza or Fresh Cut Grass. The top customers – the Ladies.
Well, Hart, let me drive some hits to your website.
2) Sometimes, the coolest app ever that you find for your phone isn’t so cool after it lands you in the pokie. This guy must have thought that he could be a cop after downloading an app to make red-blue lights flash on his phone. I guess it takes more than an iPhone app to be a cop, eh?
3) Finally, another good story from the devastation in Japan. Turns out the Japanese is showing how very different they are from much of the world in how they are handling the disaster – by not stealing and looting. Very much unlike the disaster situations that occurred in Los Angeles during the riots, Hurricane Katrina, or other areas of the world. If only other nations could show such solidarity. Even in America, the solidarity that occurred around 9/11 was short lived.
My prayers go out to the people of Japan. Time for me to get a new candle.
Stay rabid, my friends.
I have no problem saying it.
I’m not a big fan of most of the labor union cabals in this country. Perhaps a long time ago, back when there wasn’t any federal labor law, the unions had a purpose. But today, most unions have very little utility – they just exist and extort money from large companies for the big union bosses. While the corporate leaders in America aren’t exactly squeaky clean themselves, unions leaders are pretty much the same. It’s all a fight over money when it comes right down to it.
This is why I have no problem saying, “they had it coming” when watching the unions lose their collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin. The Democrats elected by those that support the unions ran and hid like the little wussy cowards they were. They demonstrated they don’t truly believe in democracy, because when the deck was stacked against them, they ran away. Losers.
Well, the Liberals are going nuts now because the GOP refused to be held hostage by a band of politicians who lacked the courage to allow the democratic process to go forward. Instead of standing in the halls of the Wisconsin capitol and voting their conscience, they ran away and hid in another state. Chants calling the GOP cowards for passing this through – how funny. At least the GOP didn’t pack up and leave town out of the range of the state police so they wouldn’t be forced to do what they were elected to do.
Oh, yeah, now THAT’S brave.
Remember, the lesson here is the one that the Democrats pontificated to us when they won in 2006 and 2008 – elections have consequences and to the winner go the spoils.
It’s sad really.
Do you liberals out there even see the similarity? You people ram-rodded a grossly unconstitutional health hijack bill down the throats of Americans who declared they didn’t want it. But you all didn’t care – you people rammed it down anyway, locking the GOP out of the room and in a very underhanded way, pushed your socialism through. And then you people had the audacity to pat yourselves on the back like you actually did something great.
So, when the GOP does it, it’s underhanded, undemocratic, and cowardly.
In short, it’s what I’ve said before – democrats adhere to a double-standard. But it’s okay because they’re “standing up for the little guy” against the big bad corporations – the ones that provide the jobs that these union/socialist people sign up to work.
Congrats Governor Walker and the Senate 18 that stayed at work, doing what they were elected to do.
