Just say no to John Kerry
I had a dream last night.
There sat the dog-faced John Kerry before the Senate confirmation hearings for his appointment to Secretary of State. After the chair had praised his vast “diplomatic experience” followed by praise for his integrity, honorable service, etc., he finally turns the hearing over to the rest of the panel for questioning – and here is where my dream turned to fantasy. For in my dream the first Republican Senator to ask a question starts like this:
“Senator, your life story is a long and storied one, well known throughout the world and the chair has praised your integrity and diplomatic experience. I’d like to start by asking you to once again describe your famous Christmas Eve, secret mission into Cambodia, which I find most interesting since you weren’t even in Southeast Asia during the Christmas time of year? Then I would like to ask, is consorting with our nations enemies part of your ‘diplomatic experience’ like North Vietnam while we were at war? The Sandinista’s while we were engaged in conflict in Central America? The butcher Assad and Saddam Hussein in the Middle East and the Russians and Chinese when we were engaged in the Cold War?
“And would you explain to us how you recruited your fellow ‘winter soldiers’ to come and testify before Congress about atrocities committed by our American soldiers and Marines when most of the so-called witnesses you recruited were never even in the military or had ever gone to Vietnam? Remind us of your eye witness accounts of our Vietnam veterans as being as ruthless as the hordes of Genghis Khan? Tell us when and where you observed that first hand Senator Kerry?
”And then I’d like to know why your citations for your Silver Stars were signed by a Secretary of the Navy years and years after the war was over? And also, is it true as charged by eyewitnesses your Purple Hearts were as a result of your own incompetence? Friendly fire by your own hand? These are just some of the questions I have and should be answered before your confirmation.”
And in my dream I was cheerleading the line of questioning and thinking subconsciously, “Ask why he couldn’t pass the bar exam if he is so brilliant?” “Ask him why he parked his boat in Rhode Island. Was it to avoid taxes on it in his home state?” “Ask him how he has accumulated such grand wealth on the salary of a senator?” “Ask him if it is true that of all the men and women in the U.S. Senate he is known to be the most egotistical of them all. Only his good buddy, John McCain, comes close. A man who also married well. Birds of a feather?”
And then I woke up. Ain’t gonna happen. Politicians are gutless!
But I have to ask myself, is this the face America wants to present to the rest of the world? A man who has made a career of lies, falsehoods and deceit? I can think of no human being who symbolizes the term “Ugly American” more than John Kerry. A liar, phony and arrogant if there ever was one.
Is this a man we should be proud to be hailed as a “Great American”? Can any foreign leader ever trust a single word out of this man’s mouth when it is documented that he has lied to his own countrymen time after time after time? Is this the best we have offer? In a perfect world this man wouldn’t even be considered for dog catcher.
He is an insult, a mortal insult, to all who have served.
Who is the racist?
Tim Scott has been sworn in as senator of South Carolina. Some liberals are bent out of shape, saying that he is against civil rights. He ran for county office in 1995 in a county that was about 70 percent white and won by a decisive margin. In 2010 he was in a runoff with republican Paul Thurmond, son of former U. S. Senator Thurmond, he won handily and was supported by Mr. Thurmond.
President Bush nominated minorities for federal judge offices, but Democrats fought them like they were the devil. In the case of Miguel Estrada, the Democrats were circulating memos, that demanded that Mr. Estrada be defeated. If Mr. Estrada was nominated to a federal judge position, it would put him in position to be nominated for the Supreme Court. If that happened, it would look bad for Democrats to vote against a Hispanic. Janice Rogers Brown, a well-qualified black lady was rejected, because she follows the constitution, and the law, not her personal preferences. If Tim Scott, Allen West, Alan Keys, Sarah Palin, Miguel Estrada, Janice Rogers Brown and a host of other conservatives would say that they were card-carrying communists, the Democrats would welcome them with a ticker tape parade that would put the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade to shame. I have no doubt that their IQ would be at least 50 points higher in the eyes of the so-called news media.
This story, I received in an email and this not the first time I have heard such stories. It comes from a Ford dealer:
“One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit app with her he noticed she was on social security disability. He said to her you don’t look like your disabled and unable to work. She said well I’m really not, I could work if I wanted to but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt (non-disabling injury). She said the government sends her $1,500 a month in one check, she gets $700 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800 a month for rent. Oh yeah and 250 minutes free on her phone. That is just south of $3,500 a month. When she was working she was bringing home $330 a week, you do the math, why the would any body work with that set of figures.”
The reason that I have no reservations about believing the story, because I met a man in Atlanta Ga., who gave his personal story, that was very similar. When you pay 99 weeks of employment benefits, there are those that will not seriously look for a job until the benefits are nearing the end.
