Ralph Nader the Hater Enters the Race!

Oh Ralph Nader, you’re so silly.  I don’t get why this guy feels the need to jump into a race.  I mean, we can all see through his “righteousness” reasons.  Frankly, I think he just wants his 15min of fame in these historical times.  I caught him on Tucker (on MSNBC) yesterday, and it was just funny.

Tucker drilled Nader on his show, citing one of the priorities on Nader’s agenda:

Impeach Bush and Cheney

Are you serious Nader – the mere fact that he has this as his priority for the moment is quite pathetic.  Sure, there are plenty of people who would love to see that, but what a waste of time.  I think I became politically dumber by listening to that!

Anyway, I don’t think he’ll “steal” votes away from anyone.  He may get some Nader-ites to join his cause, but it won’t affect the outcome in the least and he’ll be a distant memory once again…

until the next election that is.

News Flash: Presidential Candidates are Human!

I don’t get it, how come we get in a huge fuss when we find out that a Presidential candidate changes their mind on a particular issue?  News Flash:  THEIR HUMAN!  I’m tired of all the “you used to believe this” rhetoric that candidates play.

For example, if a candidate was once pro-choice, but at some point became pro-life, we are expected to think that is a big deal.  I for one have changed my opinion on that issue multiple times.  I mean, as we live more life, I think we are entitled to form opinions, re-evaluate them, and changed them if we like.

It’s like politicians are supposed to come out of the womb with all our views and beliefs programmed like some robot.  Give me a break people.  A man changing his opinion is not a character flaw.

Do yourself a favor in this election, find out the current stance your favorite candidates have on certain issues and then make your decision based on that…and hey, if you change your mind on who you want to vote for, you don’t have to worry about me causing a fuss!

Santa Delivers 37,000+ Copies of Constitution to Bush

December 20, 2007, Washington, DC – This morning, Santa Claus (in the person of noted constitutional lawyer Bill Goodman) drove his sleigh to the White House to deliver thousands of copies of the U.S. Constitution to President Bush.

Americans from all over the country – more than 37,000 of them – asked that a copy of the Constitution be delivered to the President in their name and cordially requested that he make time in his busy schedule to read it.  read more

Huckabee: women’s role in marriage is to “graciously submit”

Huckabee’s opinion on gay marriage is out there, but we should also be publicizing Huckabee’s opinions on heterosexual marriage. Specifically, what he believes about a women’s role in a marriage.

In August of 1998, Huckabee was one of 131 signatories to a full page USA Today Ad which declared: “I affirm the statement on the family issued by the 1998 Southern Baptist Convention.” What was in the family statement from the SBC? “A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ.”

The ad wasn’t just a blanket, “we support the SBC statement,” but rather highlighted details. The ad Huckabee signed specifically said of the SBC family statement: “You are right because you called wives to graciously submit to their husband’s sacrificial leadership.”

Add “graciously submit” to his “Take back the nation for Christ” statement, and if the media does its job, he’s well on his way to being toast.

Ahmadinejad’s Opening Statement…YIKES!

The Iranian President spoke at Cambridge University the other day. Many of the transcripts are available online where you can get an idea for this man’s views and the American reaction. In opening the first part of the transcript, you will read the following:

the president recites verses from the holy Koran in Arabic. “Oh, God, hasten the arrival of Imam al-Mahdi and grant him good health and victory and make us his followers and those to attest to his rightfulness.”

This is how Ahmadinejad opened his speech…no big deal right? Well, it immediately worried me. You see, the return of Imam al-Mahdi can only come with destruction never seen before on this planet (he comes in, resolves everything and creates ‘peace’…of course, if you don’t submit to Islam, you are beheaded).  I should note that this is similar to the Christian ministries who can’t wait for Jesus’ return (which is said to be after massive world-wide destruction).

There are a great deal of Muslims who believe in Imam al-Mahdi’s eventual return. The problem is, Ahmadinejad can effectively “hasten the arrival” of the Imam by creating carnage himself…through nuclear war perhaps?
