Jonah Goldberg on the Glenn Beck TV show

One of the books I just must have now is Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg. One of the programs I wish I could listen to more often is Glenn Beck's radio program, and I wish I had the cable capability neccessary to watch his television show. With the two combined, the wonder writer Jonah Goldberg guesting on Glenn Beck's programs, the wonderment and my torment is magnified. Yet thanks to the miracle of the internet we can view the stuff here. Of course I ripped the links from the CNN website. Unfortunately I doubt they will function for much longer. Fortunately I used Downloadhelper to rip the videos straight from CNN. I can keep them. Of course for a reason I will mention below I am missing Part 4. So are you.
Jonah Goldberg Series
Glenn and "Liberal Fascism" author Jonah Goldberg sit down and discuss the real meaning of the word "Fascist" and the role it plays in American Politics. Watch all 6 parts right now!

Part 1: Fascism & American Politics Video
Part 2: The "F" Word Video
Part 3: Fiscal Sensibility on the left Video
Part 4: Government Knows Best? Video
Part 5: The History of Fascism Video
Part 6: Final Thoughts Video

Notice in the end that Part 4 doesn't exist and actually links to Part 3 so we are missing a whole segment of the interview. This is Glenn Beck's fault, not mine.

William F. Buckley has passed away

I was e-mailed this by Fox News, stamped at 11:22 AM
CONSERVATIVE WRITER, COMMENTATOR WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY JR. DEAD AT 82
ABC Radio News informed me between 11:30 and noon. I found a post at National Review Online's The Corner announcing it and currently on the online representation of the man's legacy there is an ongoing series of tributes and wonder posts. If you have any thoughts or well wishes about it for the family or the magazine, send them here.

Expect a proper send-up, as proper as can be formulated by a relative untermensch such as myself, late by evening.

Obviously I am not worthy. Obviously I know not nearly enough to write a tribute or obituary. I would have to lie to say that WFB did not affect me.

It is morbidly funny and appropriately sad that my heroes tend to die from diseases of old age before I can meet and thank them.

evil pollady with deadly vision

Fidel Castro is gone!

One more Castro to go!

Fidel Castro has officially resigned, as he informed Parliament that he will refuse another term. That's funny; I wasn't aware that dictators that were in power for over 50 years served in terms. Maybe they are terms of a half a century. Fidel Castro's brother Raul Castro is now officially in power.

Practically speaking though, Raul Castro has been in charge since 2006. Fidel Castro has, to my knowledge, only performed one long public speech since then. Now that Raul is officially El Presidente (I assume) I feel even freer to make my silly conspiracy theory-esque charge that I made in 2006. Raul Castro is Fidel Castro. Fidel had his brother's brain removed and his own brain surgically implanted in Raul's brother. That's a vaguely stupid "they saved Hitler's brain" notion but it's even more credible now that Fidel Castro has ceased public appearances.

Raul Castro is not that young either. He pledges democratic reforms (as opposed to Fidel Castro's Communist/Totalitarian tendencies). I have my doubts; I don't believe the Democratization of Cuba will occur until the last Castro's death. It will happen. I hope we get a stable John Locke-George Washington-James Madison-style Democratic Republic down there.

I hope the Cuban land-owners, the expatriates living in the United States get their deeded land back.

I like who Saul Anuzis has to quote about it all.

Tom Cochrane - Life Is A Highway

I didn't even know that there was a music video.



This is my favorite road song. Ironically I never hear it in its entirety on the radio while I am driving. How can someone not like this song? It has tempo, beat, catchy tune and catchy lyrics; it sounds uplifting and it is fun to sing along.

about TMJ


So my friend, who met Rush Limbaugh, has Rush Limbaugh's personal e-mail address and drove in the Presidential Motorcade, has a disease/disorder called "TMJ": a Temporomandibular Joint disorder.

Now I don't know exactly what this is off the top of my primitive male brain but I can tell you that it
refers to a complex and poorly understood set of conditions that can cause pain in the area of the jaw joint and associated muscles and/or problems using the jaw. Both or just one of the TM joints may be affected. TMJDs can affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions, and even breathe.
My friend lives in pain. This serves as a reminder to an increasingly arrogant 26-year-old that the more one learns, the more there is to learn. Mind you that this sort of knowledge can be listed as "one of those things of the world that I wish was not existent to learn". That is in all honesty. Now that I know what it is, I can do nothing about it. It is good that I have a path to actually learn more about this and not simply, eternally claim ignorance.

Although it feels like I was going to go further than this but I cannot remember how.

As it is, it has not prevented my friend from having even more adventures that I have experienced.

I really don't care for this (Presidential) election cycle

Victory is granted to the messiah figures in cults of personality. The self-proclaimed aggreived, those who seek the Presidency because it seems their due are also in the race.

Is there anyone running for the Presidency who is vying for the Office because people saw their principles and his (or her) abilities and then called for that person to enter into the arena? Not anymore: for the most part now the Candidates are those leading their hearts and beings with the hard thrust of ambition. The exceptions are Ron Paul, who manifests a movement and perhaps Mike Huckabee, whose motivations are inscrutable unless he is genuinely acting from the demand of followers, or unless he's well-hidden evil ambition incarnate.

How foolish of Republicans and Democrats to elect those that simply want to be President.

Fred Thomspon MySpace Bulletin- the Unfortunate Endorsement

From: Fred Thompson



Date: Feb 11, 2008 10:15 AM
Subject: Fred Thompson endorses John McCain for President
Body: In case you missed it, this weekend Fred endorsed his former Senate colleague, John McCain, for the Republican presidential nomination:

"This is no longer about past preferences or differences. It is about what is best for our country and for me that means that Republican should close ranks behind John McCain."

Please stay involved through the election, and let's keep the White House for Republicans in 2008!

I am literally a gentleman

This in the classic sense of the word and by its traditional, original definition.

As CS Lewis put it in Mere Christianity, a gentleman is
"one who had a coat of arms and some landed property"
That is how the word was defined, usefully, before it was ripped to shreds by the mis-use of morons and common men, fools.

I own land. I own landed property. That is one half of the definition.

Here! Look at the Arndt Coat of Arms!

No Child Left Behind is a bipartisan sin

That the stupid education bill was too bipartisan is one of the largest reasons it should be hated and panned, given the negative effects of massive bipartisanship. We should had seen it coming.

The best part for all of these sniveling ruinous bastards in the legislature is that the Republicans and President George W. Bush gets the entire blame for the problem.

The President brought it on himself. It was a bad law and the buck never stopped.

The Poison of Barack Hussein Obama Jr

The following is by an associate and philosopher of mine. It was published on Facebook addressed to ("shared with") me. The words are all his, that the words are hyperlinked (if hyperlinked) are by my efforts. I agree with the author.

I have been deeply disappointed to hear even friends of mine mention that simply because Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is clean cut and speaks well that he would make a good U.S. President. But when asked about what Obama stands for, most who lend him credence can give no answer. Apparently, for far too many, all it takes to qualify for the presidency are public speaking skills, never mind accomplishments or experience. And while we are on the subject of accomplishments, let me list a few personal, social, fiscal, and foreign policy measures that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. backs.

Socially, Barack Hussein Obama voted against filtering pornography on elementary school library computers, he voted for “sex education” for kindergarten children, and in 2001, Barack Hussein Obama voted “present” on a bill to keep pornographic book stores, video stores, and strip clubs from setting up within 1,000 feet of schools and churches. For some reason, the man apparently has no problem with ramming perversion in the face of school children and church goers.

In addition to his practical perversion, Barack Hussein Obama has voted against bills prohibiting the tax funding of abortions twice. Apparently, he wants you to pay for the murder of innocent children. In 2001, Barack Hussein Obama voted “present” on a bill which would notify parents when their minor children seek an abortion. In 2003, as chairman of the next Senate Committee to which the Alive Infants Protection Act was sent, Barack Hussein Obama prevented it from even getting a hearing. All that BAIPA stated, by the way, was that live-born babies are guaranteed the same constitutional right to equal protection under law as all other human beings, whether or not they are wanted. Essentially, Barack Hussein Obama voted to allow newborns to be killed by women who just don’t feel like signing papers so that their living babies can be adopted. Apparently, Barack Hussein Obama’s wife, Michelle, is even worse. In February 2004, she sent out a fundraising letter, which actually stated her concern over the rise of conservatism in the Country, and that partial-birth abortion was a legitimate medical procedure that should be protected. Barack Hussein Obama also voted against a cloning ban in 2000 and touts the fact that he is an advocate of so-called “homosexual marriages.”

As far as foreign policy in concerned, Barack Hussein Obama might as well be on the side of Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. Obviously, Barack Hussein Obama’s has a Muslim name. Less obviously, his father is a devout Muslim and has four wives in Africa. Obama's picture is currently displayed on the page BANNER of Project Islamic H.O.P.E. which follows the teachings of the “Holy Quran” and the example of “Prophet Muhammad.” Project Islamic H.O.P.E. supports and follows the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, one of the world’s foremost Islamic leaders. Hussein Obama’s “Black Power Pastor Wright” supports Louis Farrakhan, and in 1984 traveled with him to visit the anti-semite Col. Muammar al-Gadaffi, an archenemy of Israel and America and a firm supporter of terror groups. Obama’s own pastor has also been a severe critic of Israel. In his own pastors words: “The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for almost 40 years now. It took a divestment campaign to wake the business community up concerning the South Africa issue. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community up and to wake Americans up concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.” (http://islamichope.org/) Barack Hussein Obama has also been quoted as saying, “nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people” and that “the lives of more than 3,000 soldiers killed in Iraq have been wasted.”

In addition, Obama’s Muslim and Marxist first cousin, Raila Odinga, has run for the presidency of Muslim Kenya and upon losing, in traditional Marxist form, rejected the results of the election and instead spurned wide-scale violence in protest. Barack Hussein Obama’s father, grandfather, grandmother, four brothers, and sister are all Muslim. He has a Muslim name and attended Muslim school for two years. What’s worse is that the Muslim world believes that he is still a Muslim parading as a Christian. They believe that this is acceptable because under Islamic law, a Muslim is morally justified in doing anything to destroy those who refuse to convert. And if Barack Hussein Obama really is a Christian, then he is up for the death penalty in half the Muslim world under Shariah Law for abandoning the Muslim religion.

Barack Hussein Obama is also a closet racist. In the period from high school in Hawaii, to Columbia University, and then to the streets of Chicago as a community organizer, Obama described his world thusly: ”We were always playing on the white man's court -- by the white man's rules. If the principal, or the coach, or a teacher wanted to spit in your face, he could, because he had the power and you didn’t. The only thing you could choose was withdrawal into a smaller and smaller coil of rage.” Later in life, Barack Hussein Obama described the white race as “that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.” “That hate hadn't gone away,” he wrote, blaming “white people — some cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” (http://www.examiner.com/a-536474~_Trapped_between_two_worlds_.html)

From here, Barack Hussein Obama went on to become an agitator and “leftist political organizer” for Mike Kruglick, who followed the radical communist organizer Saul Alinsky. And the agitator's job, according to Alinsky, “is first to bring folks to the ‘realization’ that they are indeed miserable, that their misery is the fault of unresponsive governments or greedy corporations, then help them to bond together to demand what they deserve, and to make such an almighty stink that the dastardly governments and corporations will see imminent ‘self-interest’ in granting whatever it is that will cause the harassment to cease.” In these methods, euphemistically labeled “community organizing,” Barack Hussein Obama had a four-year education, which he often says was the “best education he ever got anywhere.” After reading this it should be no surprise that one of Barack Hussein Obama’s key supporters is the anti-American, George Soros.

Another one of Barack Husseun Obama’s key supporters is the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the nation's largest Hispanic Nazi-type organization. La Raza is Spanish for “the race,” and although NCLR claims it means “community” on their website, La Raza supports legislation such as the “Civil Liberties Restoration Act,” which would roll back policies adopted after Sept. 11 designed to protect national security. It also supports the “DREAM Act,” which would mandate states to offer in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens -thus providing them with benefits that are not even available to U.S. citizens from other states. La Raza (The Race) also believes that the lower third of the United States still belongs to Mexico and that it is destined to be returned to Mexico someday.

In closing, although Barack Hussein Obama is polished on the surface, the chain smoker’s stand on the defenseless seems cold to the core, his racist attitude shameful, his foreign policy is chilling and the number one front in the War on Terror in my view, has now shifted from the Middle East to “Election 2008,” and we are on the front lines. Barack Hussein Obama Jr. has been voted the most liberal U.S. Senator. For this scarlet letter he has beaten out both Hillary Clinton who placed a meager 16th and Ted Kennedy himself. As the February air chills most of the nation, I am developing gooseflesh for more reasons than just the temperature.

What the heck is a Polzoo?

Now that I think about it, I suppose it stands for "Political Zoo". I don't know.

The only point is.... has anyone ever heard of this site? I have been propositioned to write for the thing by a complete stranger, with purported claims of future money. Has anyone been reading it now, so how could I get noticed more often and by more folk with this one more blog visibility place in particular?

template intentions

I'm intending on yanking the Newsvine POTUS box.

The question I have is.... should I remove Haloscan? I picked it as my Comments applet because of its Trackback function, but no one actually tracks back anyway, so what's the point of it? If I used blogger Comments function then I could actually manage these dang Comments without looking at a second webplace functionlocation thing. If I use Blogger then once again it is just Blogger. Modifying or even flipping through Haloscan comments requires the utilization of a whole other functional system and it doesn't connect comments to the original entries except for the name.

I believe I will take down the Haloscan and copy the meaty, useful comments to Apologies Demanded or Monitor Duty in all of the most appropriate places.

an addition to the Romney narrative

A pertinent Mitt Romney anti-endorsement
Danielle Huntley (BC) wrote
at 8:11pm yesterday
I am a life long MA resident and can tell you why I am not supporting Mitt Romney. He is an opportunist snake. Who will say anything to pander to the base to get himself elected.

"executive experience" = last year in office spending 2/3 of his time out of the state building his presidential campaign. I voted for him to govern the Commonwealth not run his presidential bid.

Romney also did nothing for the republican candidate running for governor after him, his Lt. Gov Kerry Healey. He didn't campaign for her at all, and now we have the uber liberal Deval Patrick.

His glorified socialized health care plan is going to end up costing the taxpayer millions more than was originally projected, because they under projected the number of people lacking health insurance in the Commonwealth.

Most of my conservative friends here in MA refuse to support him. We had him as our governor for four years. He is a snake, and did NOTHING for the state he governed.


This will be integral to my narrative. Integral to THE narrative.

Arnold Schwarzenegger betrayed me to John McCain

Shortly after Fred Thompson removed himself from the Presidential race I unsubscribed from John McCain and Mitt Romney's electronic mailing lists.

The e-mail addresses that I use for those sorts of things are quite specific. Unfortunately over a year ago I signed up with a more general e-mail address with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, in part to seek out where his 2006 Victory Party may be.

I forgot about it, and the Governator stopped sending me stuff.

Recently he sent me a couple more e-mails and I ignored them. Then there was an Auhnuld-linked e-mail sent to me from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger california@johnmccain.com

Then I got a second letter straight from the McCain campaign that was not addressed or bylined by the Governator. I figured it out the first time. Only the California Governor had my e-mail address and the Arizona Senator's campaign was commanded not to contact me. Obviously what has happened is that when Arnold endorsed McCain his campaign infrastructure turned over the rolls of contact lists to the McCain campaign.

Lots of political organizations sell their lists and it is pretty scumtastic thing to do. I suspect John McCain got mine for free. I resent it.

I unsubscribed from this California McCain deal but I still resent it. Thanks a lot Governor Schwarzenegger. That was none of McCain campaign's business.
