Thanksgiving Prayer 2004

Merciful Father we thank you for another year blessed under the grace of your Divine Providence. We thank you for those that you have brought together to be with us this day and share in the bounty of this land. Guide us and bless us with your wisdom even when we are too arrogant to ask for and seek it. Too we pray that you watch over those of your children that have not been able to be with us this day due to other commitments. Watch over those loved ones that are distant from us over the following year and always.

Too we ask that you watch over and bless those that have sacrificed ease and comfort to defend this country both at home and abroad in nations such as Afghanistan and Iraq and are protecting us from those that desire to do your children harm and distort your word and your law to their own benefit and ends. We ask this day and every day that you fill their hearts with your love and their minds with your peace as they face down fear and the evil of this world. Protect them with your word and while we know that you must allow some of these brave men and women to pass into your arms and your grace we ask that you guide the souls of those that will pass on to your arms and love and ease the grief of those that they will leave behind young and old.

We ask that you bless our leaders and the leaders of other nations with your wisdom as well so that they might lead their people with strength not present in mortal man.

And finally as we give thanks this day Lord we pray in your name that you will continue to bless this nation, her people and all freedom loving people of the world and in your name we pray that you will see your people through the coming year.

Laus Deo.

Taking A Stand

Monday, November 22, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 8:13 AM


The NBA has handed down their punishment for Ron Artest who rushed into the stands and assaulted fans. The punishment is the rest of the year off without pay. And I say good for the NBA. Good for the NBA for finally taking a stand and good for Commissioner David Stern for showing a real set of balls standing up to the spoiled players and their union which is now crying foul and trying to blame everyone but Mr. Artest for Mr. Artest’s actions.

Games are emotional things; win or lose. Even people that play a game for a living get emotional. But when you are paid millions of dollars to play said game you are now a professional and expected to act with some degree of professionalism. Now, I don’t mind fist pumping. I don't mind jawing about how you just schooled your opponent on the way to the hoop because hey, competition is an emotional thing. I don't mind athletes showing passion about what they accomplish. It is one thing to be passionate but when fists start flying that is another story. When you cross the line into committing a criminal offense like assault or battery you are no longer even remotely acting professionally. You are, at that point, a criminal.

Competition is fine. Emotions are fine. Passion is fine. Not being able to control those emotions or passions is not fine. One player out for the season, several others suspended for various other lengths of time is probably about the best we can expect from a league that has over the years allowed more and more unprofessional behavior on and off the court. The days of Jordan and Bird are a distant memory. Today, players like Ron Artest rule the league. And if I were the commissioner of the NBA, suspension would not have been the punishment I would have handed down. I would have expelled and banned him permanently from the league making Mr. Artest free to show us his other talents and get a 9 to 5 job. Perhaps he could hit the lecture circuit talking about how the man is keeping him down?

But no. Instead, Mr. Artest, the player's union, other players and loyal fans are out there begging and pleading for us to show understanding and compassion. We hear people throwing blame all around trying to justify the acts that have been done.

Sure a fan threw a beer from the stands. And that is assault. And the fan the threw the beer is not without fault. And sure I would be mad if someone threw a beer on me too. But to take that anger and to go charging into the stands in search of that fan and start throwing punches indiscriminately is certainly NOT the way any professional should react. Especially not one being paid millions of dollars to play a game.

If a judge leapt from the bench and began throwing punches after being heckled from the gallery when a verdict was reached that someone did not like, I hope that we would call for his removal. If a bus driver got up from his seat and started throwing punches at a heckler sitting in the back, I hope that we would call for him being fired. If a Senator rushed a colleague after being criticized from the floor of the Senate and started wailing on him, I hope that we would call for his removal as well.

But when it happens in professional sports we are stuck with trying to justify not being too hard on a self important, multi-millionaire player that begins to assault fans. Well, after all, without “our” players “our” team wouldn’t be a good. So how dare the NBA punish players for misconduct because … well … um … the team will suffer. Yeah, that’s it; the game is more important than being professional. Winning is more important than anything right?

Wrong.

The message must be that celebrating accomplishments on the court is fine. Even taunting the opponent is fine. Acting like a thug is not. Bringing the American gang culture from the streets to the professional arena is not to be tolerated. The sports arena is simply a microcosm of American society and the activities that we have allowed to run rampant and out of control in our culture for several decades.

The only way this activity will stop is when players see their livelihood stripped away from their fellow “professionals” that act like animals on and off the court, field, rink or diamond. When the easy millions they are paid for playing a game is no longer there, only then will we see the end to the behavioral problems being exhibited. Only when they are forced to earn a living by either cutting a rap album or more likely dawning the head gear of a drive thru technician and asking people if they would “like fries with that” will the idiocy stop.

Janeane Garofalo Is REALLY Ignorant

Tuesday, November 16, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 4:21 PM


Websters defines "ignorant" as:
Main Entry: ig·no·rant
Pronunciation: 'ig-n(&-)r&nt
Function: adjective
1 a : destitute of knowledge or education ; also : lacking knowledge or comprehension of the thing specified b : resulting from or showing lack of knowledge or intelligence
2 : UNAWARE, UNINFORMED

Listening to Garofalo on Hannity this afternoon saying that she does not believe that Michael Moore ever stated that the was "no terrorist threat" after going on about how people in the "red states" that voted down gay "marriage" are woefully uninformed about the environment blah blah blah shows that it is Jeneane that is really the uniformed or "ignorant" one. Pick up a copy of Farenhype 9/11 and you see the video clip of Mr. Moore saying it.

Ms. Garofalo...you are ignorant. So do us all a favor and inform yourself before you go on the air and make a fool out of your self.

And the worst part about her "intellect" is that she calls anyone that disagrees with her is a "bigot". Yeah...way to ARGUE!

Rice to Replace Powell

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 7:59 AM


(Source)

Colin Powell while a fine man caused more trouble than was needed with his dovish approach to foreign policy. It was Powell that convinced President Bush to go to the U.N. and seek a final resolution and try to bring everyone to the table even though it was at least suspected (and later confirmed) that member states of the security council were on the take from Saddam Hussein.

A redeeming feature of President Bush's administration is that he chose to surround himself with people who had different opinions and that he actually listened to them. The down side is that even in the face of a mounting evidence and need for action, moderates like Powell remained far too dovish and ignored the facts.

Even When We Win...The Left Still Tries to Find Failure...

Monday, November 15, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 6:33 AM


(source CNN.com)

Reports have the enemy forces in Falluja dismantled and "fighting to the death"...at least as far as those that didn't flee before the ass whopping began. Amnesty international, famous for attacking U.S. foreign policy when it comes to defending ourselves, said that it was concerned by
"failure by parties to the fighting to take precautions to protect non-combatants."
News flash for the London based Marxists, EVERYONE was warned that we were coming. EVERYONE was told that we are going to clean out the nest of thugs that had taken up root there. EVERYONE was told that it was going to be done. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?!?!?!

This is war. And in war, when the enemy has a base of operations you take it out. It is a military target. And ANYONE at a military target is NOT a civilian. With the torture chambers and beheading factories uncovered since the assault began it is clear that the enemy is and was there. Are we now supposed to NOT attack any target because there might be a civilian there?

Talk about moving the goal posts! First we were told that Falluja would be a tough and long battle. Now, in less than a week we have routed the insurgents. And because of that, the left wing has got to find SOMETHING to complain about...I know, let's find a civilian that was killed while hanging out foolishly around a military target and beat that horse to death. Then if that doesn't work, we'll move the goal posts back another 10 yards.

Right Marxists?

How Out Of Touch With Reality Is The Left Wing?

Wednesday, November 10, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 10:35 PM


According to the report, the Arab protesters have called for the Republican club to be banned from [San Francisco State University]. Flyers were even distributed at the university that said: "Don't Let the College Republicans Commit Racism and Bigotry Against Arab Women."

(source WorldNetDaily)

Other quotes from the "compassionate" left included:

I'd rather die a suicide bomber's death than to call myself an American!


So, the left calls the "Republicans" bigoted and anti-woman? Wait, how many women just got the right to vote in Afghanistan? How many are about to get the right to vote in Iraq? Who did that? It certainly wasn't the "compassionate" left that fought tooth and nail to allow Saddam Hussein to stay in power and whined about attacking the Taliban.

Oh, but that's right! Republicans generally oppose letting women commit murder...so that makes them anti-woman. Forget about calling it what it really is which is pro-child and pro-unalienable rights. Liberals can't get past that. So instead of being honest, they resort to lying. Again. Maybe they didn't notice that John Kerry lying over and over was a bad thing. But then again, liberals have exhibited a propensity for NOT being able to learn from history.

Liberals Continue to Show Their True Colors

Sunday, November 07, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 5:27 PM


Bloggers on the liberal Democratic Underground website have overwhelmingly labeled Nov. 3, 2004, the day after Election Day, "more depressing" than Sept. 11, 2001 in a poll of online members.
(Source CNSNews.com)

Only to Marxists and other lefties is the defeat of their failed ideas more depressing than the death of 3,000 civilians. Of course their idol Stalin killed how many million in the Ukraine? And let's not forget that their boy Hitler who killed how many million Jews?

The death of innocent people is nothing to them...as long as it furthers their power. But since it reminded Americans of the horrors of the world and set them back in their grab for the reigns of government it really isn't that big of a deal compared to their loss of power.

More From The "Useful Idiots"

Thursday, November 04, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 9:51 PM


Drudge:
KRUGMAN NYT FRIDAY: President Bush isn't a conservative. He's a radical -- the leader of a coalition that deeply dislikes America as it is. This election did not prove the Republicans unbeatable. Bush did not win in a landslide... Developing...


NO FREAKING DUH! I don't even like America "as it is" because "as it is" it is basically infested by SOCIALIST, me-centered politicians trying to find any way to take money from the "rich" to give to the "poor". I don't like socialism so, quite frankly, I don't have a problem with that observation! And HEAVEN for-freaking-bid that someone would want to change that!

Stating The Obvious

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 3:51 PM


Carolyn Parrish said Wednesday that she's "dumbfounded"
source

Well, she's a Canadian Socialist, so in my humble opinion it is herself not only stating the obvious, but also and more importantly the first step to admitting she has a problem.

She was speaking about how us Americans could be so "stupid" as to re-elect a "war-like man". Now I know leftists fear "war-like" men because it threatens them. When people are willing to fight for their freedom and the freedom of others that means that socialists and communists have a really hard time holding onto power. But does this one have to keep opening her mouth?

This is the same enlightened intellectual who referred to the countries siding with the U.S. to oust Saddam as the "coalition of the idiots". I wonder if she had equally harsh words for the French, Germans and Russians who sold their votes for the love of oil money. Hmmmmmmmm?

No, of course she didn't. Because she wants the same thing they got - POWER!

Republicans In PA Will Reap What They Sow

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 9:07 AM


When Specter starts holding up nominations again don't say I didn't "tell you so". Most of the Republicans at the local Bush/Cheney victory centers kept saying "Don't worry, Specter made a 'deal'." Yeah, and Specter's word is worth OH so much. The guy is a conservative 5 months out of every 6 years to gain reelection. The rest of the time he is moderate at best.

Conservatives who voted for Specter over Clymer because he had an "R" next to his name will reap what they sowed unless Republicans in the Senate beat on Specter to get his job done. I mean REALLY beat on him. Bush is similarly at fault and to blame for Specter being elected. In the primary Specter and Toomey were neck and neck with Toomey gaining every day. There was no scandal; no anything that would have changed that. Except for Bush showing up in the final week to campaign with Snarlin' "Magic Bullet" Specter. That was all that was needed.

President Bush should have stepped back and simply said that he could work with either man and stayed out. Don't you just love politics though?

source
"When you talk about judges who would change the right of a woman to choose, overturn Roe v. Wade, I think that is unlikely," Specter said, referring to the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.


and in response to "Giants" of the Supreme Court

"With all due respect to the (current) U.S. Supreme Court, we don't have one," he said.


And with Specter re-elected, you won't have one for another 6 years. Because as long as Specter is there you will not get a nominee through that strictly interprets the Constitution and applies the UNALIENABLE rights of all granted in the DOI to everyone...including unborn children.

No Rest For Patriots

Wednesday, November 03, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 6:15 PM


I hate to say that we cannot rest on our bottoms on this victory and I know that everyone out there is tired of the fight and burned out, but we must start thinking about '08 and start thinking about it soon. There is no rest for patriots. Being patriots is a full time job.

We have to start identifying those candidates that we as conservatives desire to run when the White House is again up for grabs in 4 years. We have to find those that are willing to run for the office and we have to start promoting them. Because the opposition is not entirely a "loyal opposition". Among them are those that seek desperately to do harm to America and our principles. And they will not rest. They will not cease. And they will not go away. And they are already out there planning for the day when they will catch us as conservatives, libertarians, constitutionalists, etc. napping and take this country from us.

Our vigilance must not waiver. And out commitment must not weaken. Because we are the last line of defense between America and the followers of Karl Marx.

Kerry Conceeds

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 1:26 PM


With Kerry's call to President Bush at 11AM EST it is now pretty much official except for the crys and wails of Moveon.orgers that still cling to hope of election fraud or disenfranchisement claims.

Are we all glad it is finally over?

Now take a few moments and vists Right Things' President Bush Victory Center and show your support for PRESIDENT BUSH!

An Interesting Point Of Discussion

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 10:02 AM


Looking at Pennsylvania's vote totals you will see that Kerry won by less than the number of votes he is claiming to be able to overcome in Ohio. Kerry won Pennsylvania by a mere 121,818 votes while losing Ohio by 136,221 votes.

I wonder if Kerry thinks that we should take those 21 Electoral Votes away from him and call that state "too close to call" as well.

It's All Over...Except The Whining...

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 5:30 AM


But don't tell that the Democrats and John Kerry who seem hell bent on dragging out the 2004 election the same as in 2000. Kerry delays his concession speech because they still have "hope" and said that they will wait and see what happens when provisional ballots in Ohio are counted. Without swinging Ohio from Bush's column, there is NO way for Kerry to win the elecion. Ohio puts Bush at 269 Electoral Votes and even with several other states "too close to call" officially ensures that the Republican House and Senate would break any tie even if all the rest went to Kerry. Which they wont.

With 100% of the precincts in Ohio reporting, the vote totals are George W. Bush (R) 2,794,346 (51%) and John F. Kerry (D) 2,658,125 (49%) or a lead of 136,221 votes. There are an estimated 125,000 to 175,000 provisional ballots left to be counted. False hope on John Kerry's part?

Look at the numbers. If there are 150,000 provisional ballots then IF Kerry beat George Bush among these ballots 75%/25% John Kerry would STILL lose by 61,221 votes. IF Kerry beat George Bush 90%/10% John Kerry would STILL lose by 16,221 votes. IF Kerry beat George Bush 95%/5% JOHN KERRY WOULD STILL LOSE BY 1,221 VOTES!

John Kerry would HAVE to have a 95.5% to 4.5% WHOPPING of George Bush in these provisional ballots to win! That is, assuming that all of the ballots are valid.

So false hope for John Kerry? You better believe it is!

Even though other states are too close to call, from some people's perspective, Nevada is Bush's (5 votes), New Mexico is Bush's (5 votes), Iowa is Bush's (7 votes) and Wisconsin is Kerry's (10 votes).

Bush has won with 286 electoral votes. Get over it. Be a gracious loser Kerry and just concede now. But it seems like you would rather just drag the country through ANOTHER long drawn out whine fest just like in 2000.

Even With Bush UP In Polls, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!

Tuesday, November 02, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 6:10 AM


(source Real Clear Politics)

First of all, EVERYONE that has read what I have written in the past knows that I hate polls and don't think that there is any way to sample 1,000 likely voters and accurately predict how the Presidential race will turn out. Polling is a black art because it deals with statistics and I spent the better part of my college career dealing with statistics and learning how to make them say what you want them to say.

Of the final three polls (Battleground, Rasmussen & TIPP) each has the President up by an ever so slight margin nationally ranging from 1.7 to 4%. And even looking at all the polls over the past weeks it does appear that George Bush has held a lead in 90% of the polls taken since August. But that does not mean that you shouldn't vote if you support President Bush. Don't fall into the mind set of "he's going to win".

First of all, popular vote which these polls track means nothing. Its the Electoral college that counts and with NY, California and Illinois all going for Kerry (107 EVs) that puts Kerry a third of the way to the 270 he needs to win. Add Pennsylvania to that mix (128 EV total) and he's got almost 50% of what he needs.

So it is important to vote. If you are in ANY of the "to close to call" states, get out and vote! That means, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, Hawaii, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and New Hampshire! The 104 Electoral Votes that make up these states WILL decide the election.

SO VOTE!

I Am Rich BTW

Monday, November 01, 2004

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 9:21 PM


The Kerry campaign is still pounding on George Bush giving "Tax Cuts for the Wealthy". It confuses me and I think that it would be informative to let everyone know that me and my wife both got a tax cut from George W. Bush. Our income is under 100,000 combined. She works 1 job and I work my regular job as well as being a small business owner. That's 3 jobs between the two of us.

So are we rich? I don't think so. But John Kerry thinks we are...because all he is doing is deriding President Bush's tax cuts for the rich. I argue that "fact". I was thankful for every penny I didn't have to pay to the Federal Government because it is my money. It's not the government's money.

If anyone else wants to try and claim that I am "rich" or that the government has a right to my money because I make more than a hamburger flipper and work hard go for it.

Bin Laden Threatens States That Vote For Bush.

Posted by J. J. Jackson @ 6:03 AM


Source Newsmax.com

Translated correctly, bin Laden's speech suggests some knowledge of the U.S. electoral college system. In fact, notes MEMRI, in one section of his speech where he harshly criticizes President Bush, bin Laden states: "Any U.S. state that does not toy with our security automatically guarantees its own security."


MERMI is the Middle East Media Research Institute and this issue arose after American media supposedly mistranslated the word "ay wilaya" as country (or the whole U.S.). In reality, however the word means "state" as in Pennsylvania, Vermont, Delaware, etc. The alternate translation puts a slightly different spin on the meaning of what Usama bin Laden meant in his latest threats to the United States. I specifically paints the threat as directed towards any state belonging to the U.S. that votes for President Bush.

Will this effect the way Americans vote on November 2? Do Americans believe that if their state (such as New York) votes for Kerry that they will be spared future 9/11 style attacks? Will Americans rally at being threatened by a thug hiding in the mountains?

These are the questions that will only be answered after the votes are counted November 2. But I will say that any American that believes for one second that they will be spared the wrath of a mad man is probably too stupid to vote.
