Wake Up Sheeple!

Saturday, July 02, 2005

Who would have guessed?! Geek Boy Karl outed as Plame source Wow I would have never in a million years imagined he was the source, I'm shocked. Let the FROG MARCH begin. I just can't wait to hear the right-wing echo chamber ratchet up their talking points on this one, its going to get interesting. But, in the end absolutly nothing will happen to Boy Karl. Also, isn't it interesting that this comes out at the start of the long 4th of July weekend, um?

Sheepole Speak: Letter to the Editor Smack down

Let me introduce a regular feature, the sheepole speak letter to the editor smack down. Every morning the first page I turn to in my newspaper (or online) is the Opinion page. For on the Opinion page you often find sheepole logic in all of its illogical and simplistic glory in the form of letters to the editor. Whenever I find a good one I will take it apart with the tools of logic and facts, something that the Sheepole are lacking in. If you find one in your local paper that is deserving of a smackdown, send it my way. So here goes, our first one comes from my birthplace Pocatello, Idaho about as Red of a place as you can find.

Dear Tom Ballard,
Re: Congressional Decisions, June 25, 2005.
The first question that comes to mind is this: Is it for attitudes such as yours - attitudes of disrespect towards our country, our flag that represents our country, our democracy and the freedoms we have fought for, won and continue to enjoy, the reason my boys are fighting for and serving to protect?

Why is it that if anyone questions our government, it is “disrespect towards our country?” Sheepole always question their opponent’s patriotism, but I have news for you Ms. Thompson blind faith in bad leadership is not patriotism. Your boys are not fighting to protect anything (well maybe the oil and corporate profits), Iraq was not a threat to us.
Because if so, I'd like them to return home! I'd rather enjoy daily life with my boys.

I would like them to return home too, but sooner than you would and alive!
I'd rather watch their kids' faces light up when they return from a hard day's work, rather than seeing their dad - at best - a few times a year because they are serving in the United States military!
I'd like their wives to have the satisfaction of living the American dream of a "normal," happy family.
I'd rather celebrate Christmases, Easters, birthdays and holidays with my family all together, rather than have them separated, fighting for such an "unthankful" cause!
No - wait! If they all were to return home, we would be fighting these battles on our own U.S. soil!

This is the cliché Sheepole argument. Let me see if I can get this straight. If they come home before they kill all of the terrorists (an impossibility) vast hordes of Arab terrorists will invade America? Hand-to-hand combat in the streets of Pocatello. Wow what delusional thinking!
Without these freedoms we daily enjoy, represented by the United States flag, there will be no "better-educated people," no option of dealing with "bird flu" nor the choice of what our kids will use for energy.

Oh, you mean those freedoms that are being stripped away by the Patriot Act in the name of this phony war? “Bird-flu, WTF, let me see if I can lay out your logic. Here goes, if we don’t kill all the terrorists, we won’t have freedoms, thus, we won’t have educated people so many will die from the “bird-flu?” Did I get that straight? Do you see how stupid that sounds!
Our country as we know it will cease to exist. What a nice "Welcome Home Soldiers! Thank you for all you're doing!" message to all the soldiers who honor and serve our country and the flag representing our treasured freedoms!

Ah, always back to the flag, for the sheepole, I bet she has three or four of those magnetic ribbons on her car! Again, those freedoms are disappearing lady, which is exactly what the terrorists want! I hate to break it to you Jean but the terrorists are winning.
If you don't like our flag and what it stands for, there are many other countries who feel the same as you do, who would welcome your citizenship and patriotism to their country with open arms.

Ah, the “why don’t you move to Canada, you commie” retort, very big of you. I'm surprised she doesn't work in gays somehow. I like the flag just fine, but I expect greater things of this country Ms. Thompson

Thank you, Congress, for protecting what represents the foundation of our nation!
Jean Thompson,
Pocatello, Idaho

No thank you, Ms. Thompson for laying out typical Sheepole logic in all of its glory!

Great moments in improbable conservative causation!
Senator “Man on Beast” parades out the fallacy of false cause. As a Catholic this offends me on so many levels, but mostly in its total reliance on simplistic black and white conservative thinking (a bedrock of conservative thought). As Mario Cuomo so aptly put it once: “We [liberals] write with fine-quill pens, while conservatives write with crayons."
Sen. Santorum says priestly pedophilia is rooted in culture of academic liberalism ...
It is startling that those in the media and academia appear most disturbed by this aberrant behavior, since they have zealously promoted moral relativism by sanctioning "private" moral matters such as alternative lifestyles. Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm.

Hey Rick, here is a throught for you what about the Catholic church turning a blind-eye for so many years, where is the morality in that?

Bush photo-opp smack down:

When all else fails, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11, 9/11, boy Georgie knows that the sheepole don’t think for themselves so repeat a lie often enough and the sheepole will believe, hey they may even fall at your feet and cheer. Just how many times did the boy resident shamelessly use 9/11 in last night’s speech? SIX, twice in the first three paragraphs.

Or as boy George in a rare moment of honest candor told the sheepole directly [at one of his staged sheepole rallies just last month]

See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth [lie] to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.

And the unthinking, moron sheepole cheered wildly, not having the brains to know that they had been made fools of!

Here are boy Georgie’s shameless 9/11 references from the text of the speech:

The troops here and across the world are fighting a global war on terror. This war reached our shores on September 11, 2001.

After September 11, I made a commitment to the American people: This Nation will not wait to be attacked again. We will take the fight to the enemy.
[Wait most of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, remind me why did we attack Iraq?]
Iraq is the latest battlefield in this war. Many terrorists who kill innocent men, women, and children on the streets of Baghdad are followers of the same murderous ideology that took the lives of our citizens in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania.

The only way our enemies can succeed is if we forget the lessons of September 11

They are trying to shake our will in Iraq – just as they tried to shake our will on September 11, 2001.

After September 11, 2001, I told the American people that the road ahead would be difficult – and that we would prevail.
[No I believe you told us that we would be greeted as liberators]

Other observations:

Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the war on terror. Among the terrorists, there is no debate. Hear the words of Osama Bin Laden: “This Third Third_World War … is raging” in Iraq. “The whole world is watching this war.” He says it will end in “victory and glory or misery and humiliation.”

if we abandon the Iraqi people to men like Zarqawi … and if we yield the future of the Middle East to men like Bin Laden.

[Why would Georgie bring up one of his biggest failures – bin Laden? My thoughts, we have no intention of capturing him, because as long as the boogieman is on the loose the sheepole will be fearful and shaking in their boots.]

We continued our efforts to help them rebuild their country.
[Yea, after WE blew up and destroyed the whole country.]

As Iraqis make progress toward a free society, the effects are being felt beyond Iraq’s borders.
[One only need to look to the recent election in Iran, where they are going the opposite direction and they have REAL WMD’s].

They wear no uniform; they respect no laws of warfare or morality.
[and we do so by throwing out the Geneva Convention and torturing and killing prisoners?]
Our mission in Iraq is clear. We are hunting down the terrorists.

The progress in the past year has been significant – and we have a clear path forward. To complete the mission, we will continue to hunt down the terrorists and insurgents.

The principal task of our military is to find and defeat the terrorists – and that is why we are on the offense.

[Let me see if I can summarize boy Georgie’s military strategy for all you sheepole. We lure all the terrorists into Iraq and kill them all, case closed, war on terror won. However, I would venture to guess that for every terrorist killed we create many, many more.
And we fight today because terrorists want to attack our country and kill our citizens – and Iraq is where they are making their stand. So we will fight them there … we will fight them across the world – and we will stay in the fight until the fight is won.

But Georgie, back in August of 2004 you said that the war on terror was unwinable: When asked “Can we win?” the war on terror, Bush said, “I don’t think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that the — those who use terror as a tool are — less acceptable in parts of the world.”

News Alert: Bunnypants wears adult clothes for his Tuesday night photo opp

I tried but I just couldn't bring myself to watch. However, I did try to watch the Media Whores fawn all over the Bush boy. The worst was MSNBC were the bow-tie boy (quickly failing talk show host - Tucker Carlson) made some pretty amazing observations/lies, and I'm paraphrasing here. . . "Everyone knows this is a noble cause," [nice sweeping generalization], "we're not there for the oil, or to build military bases, or for imperialism." Say what - WTF. How can bow-tie boy repeat such crap with a straight face. I'm sure he is well aware of the permanent military bases (as in plural) we are currently building, the untold billions we are spending to build a new embassy in Baghdad, yet the bow-tie BOY claims just the opposite. He knows we have no interntion of ever leaving Iraq and that we are establishing a permanent presence. But, he knows the sheepole don't read and don't pay attention to the news unless it is about the Runaway Bride, or Michael Jackson, or the missing girl in Aruba, so he lies and the sheepole eat it up hook, line and sinker.

One other quick observation, I would bet anyone that the Bushies are polling their asses off as I write this. But, they tell the sheepole that the don't follow or pay attention to polls - right sheepole?

Bunnypants On Parade

Ah, could it be that some sheepole are waking up from their spoon fed stupor of Michael Jackson, the Runaway Bride, or what ever the BIG STORY of the day is that the Corporate Media uses to dumb down and distract from the story of the quagmire that is Iraq!

Headline: Majority of Americans believe Bush administration misled public on Iraq: poll

The ABC News/Washington Post poll came on the eve of a key speech in which Bush will seek public support for the war, which 53 percent of Americans who were surveyed said was not worth fighting.

A record 57 percent say the Bush administration "intentionally exaggerated its evidence that pre-war Iraq possessed nuclear, chemical or biological weapons," according to the poll.

So given this headline what will Bush boy have to say tonight? Look for Bush with Boy Rove’s talking points to ratchet up the terror alert, they have to pull something new and big out of their hat to scare the sheepole back into their fear induced stupor.

Another question, will Bush break out his ridiculous photo-opp Commander-in-Chief jacket for the occasion? If this is such an important speech, why isn’t Bunnypants using a more traditional and respectful backdrop, the oval office, with a suit and tie? Because he just loves to play dress up and parade around with soldiers, trying to look tough because anybody with a brain knows that he is a megalomaniac, a little spineless man with serious issues. What he couldn't find an Aircraft carrier?

Taking the fight to Karl Go here for some great smackdown of Boy Karl from some military liberals!

Ah, Rummy speaks again, priceless!

Herr Rumsfeld speaking on NBC’s Meet The Press began by saying “wars are tough things." No shit! Hey I have an idea, don't start them for no apparent reason and then they won't be so tough. Hey Rummy what are they "tough things," or "hard work" can't you idiots make up your minds. I wonder how many times the Boy Monkey will say one or the other in his staged photo op, shamelessly using the U.S. Military on Tuesday night, any bets? Oh, and I can't wait to see that cool jacket he always wears when he plays dress up.

Herr Rummy went on to say . . "We're not going to win against the insurgency. The Iraqi people are going to win against the insurgency." Then why don't we just f-ing leave now?

"That insurgency could go on for any number of years. Insurgencies tend to go on five, six, eight, 10, 12 years." What Rummy has done some research and found that there has never been a case of an insurgency that lasted one to four years, or seven years, or nine years, or longer than 12 years? I thought you people didn't deal in logic or anything but black and white. Its interesting to note that the 12 year quote only appeared in his first Sunday appearance, a little slip of Rummy speak? Somebody got to him between appearances and told him to zip-it with that insight.

Back in Time. On Feb. 7, 2002 here is what Rummy said "It is unknowable how long that conflict will last. It could last six days, six weeks. I doubt six months." But now we are talking 12 years or longer?

Oh and the revelation that we are now negotiating with the insurgents! I thought we didn't negotiate with terrorists? Must be a semantic difference insurgents/terrorists just like enemy combatants/prisoners of war, its all in how you label it! And they had a cow over Clinton and the meaning of "is!"
