PETA - People Eating Tasty Animals

Does anyone remember the ruckus raised by the animal rights activists over Huck's shooting of the antelope? Where are they on the shooting of a turkey in Mike Beebe's campaign video?

Minneapolis-St. Paul? Get the Rolaids.

What is the leadership of the GOP thinking? Are we trying to give away the '08 race? First of all, we have no "A" listers sticking their heads up at this point. Maybe a "B+", but no "A's." And second, choosing Minneapolis-St. Paul?

Come on! The only state to vote against Reagan in '84 was Minnesota - and that was because Reagan's opponent was from there. This is the state of Humphrey for goodness sakes. The closest the entire state has come to electing a conservative was when Jesse Ventura became governor - feather boa and all.

Don't say that we must face the liberals on their own ground and defeat them. If that was true, why not San Francisco?

Why not reward states such as Ohio? Cleveland ain't that bad. Or maybe Texas to say goodbye to the current President. San Antonio might help with the Hispanic vote.

The point is there were better options. Would Reagan have a serious discussion on America's future with his closest friends in Moscow?

7-11 Drops Chavez and Citgo

While dealing OPEC for oil may be a bitter pill to swallow, it gets worse when you realize that one of the OPEC nations is in our own hemisphere - Venezuela. Venezuelan "President" Hugo Chavez has made a mockery of democracy in South America. He has taken over most industries in the country, including the oil industry. And recently, Chavez mounted the podium at the U.N. to berate President Bush, calling him a "devil" and an "alcoholic."

One of the largest chain convenience stores in the country, 7-11, has decided to drop the Venezuelan owned Citgo as their fuel provider. Nationwide, that will be more than 2100 gas stations dropping Citgo. That should make a dent in the Citgo coffers, but probably not much in the Venezuelan economy. In time, the communist government that Chavez leads will ruin that.

Americans should consider boycotting all Citgo stations and all stores that use Citgo as a supplier. Together, we can send a serious message to Chavez that we will not stand idly by when he speaks against any American leader in such a way.

 

Message From Asa Campaign

From the "Asa for Governor" campaign:

We’re getting a lot of calls from supporters angry about Asa’s signs being vandalized, ripped up and torn down.

All over the state, from Texarkana to Jonesboro , vandals are spraying graffiti on our signs, tearing them down, and otherwise destroying them. We've also seen where the Beebe campaign has put up double Beebe signs -- sandwiching Asa's signs between them so that nobody can see them. And, yes, we do realize that these attacks are being done in systematic fashion across the state.

However, we urge our supports not to take retaliatory action. No reason to fight crayon with crayon.

The way the candidates are running their campaigns gives you an idea of what kind of Governors each would make. We think that the systematic effort to destroy Asa's signs says volumes about the differences between the two campaigns, and Asa wants our campaign to maintain the high road.

In fact, we want our vandalized signs to remain up, as visible reminders to voters about the difference between the two campaigns.

Thanks for your continued hard work in helping get Asa elected as our next Governor! And keep putting those signs up! Obviously, folks are noticing!

Chris Battle
Campaign Manager
Asa For Governor

 

Thanks for the HIGH Energy Bills, Mike

Have you noticed the gas prices coming down? But those electric bills aren't. They would if they were forced to remove that "recovery" charge.

The charge was originally sold as a means to recovery what the electric company lost due to the hard freeze and ice storm a few years back. Do you think they have had sufficient time to get recoup their losses? Another story that has passed around on the charge is that the monies lost on the entire electric grid during the rolling blackouts in California nearly bankrupted the electric companies and this is a way to get them all back on to stable footing. So, we are being punished for Grey-out Davis' mistakes from back when he was governor of California, if this report is true.

Keep this in mind, part of the job of attorney general is to regulate the electric and natural gas companies. Our current Attorney General is Mike Beebe. Did you know he worked in the energy industry before serving as their puppet in the Senate and as AG?

So while Beebe and his crooked cronies line their pockets with energy company donations we walk perilously close to personal devastation due to those same energy companies. Gee, thanks Mike!

There Goes Brummett, Again

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan speaking to Sam Donellson, "Well... There you go again, John."

While defending the latest round of Bill Clinton's sociopathic lying, John Brummett claims that FOX News is the "epitome of political partisanship masquerading as journalism." Sorry, John. Just because FOX News isn't an extension of PRAVDA, doesn't mean they are not real journalists. They just don't drink the liberal Koolaid as MSNBC, CBS, NBC, CNN, et al. do.

" Clinton indeed is a great world leader..."
Hmmm, let's see about that. Bosnia - we were told troops would be there for six months to a year. That was in the mid 90s. We still have troops there. And America has no legitimate interest in the former Yugoslavia. Haiti - there's a great achievement. The are still holding necktie parties down there. Just because Clinton "tried, " the media quit covering the story. That was enough for PRAVDA. Oh! We can't forget the Middle East initiatives of the Clinton administration. They really worked well, didn't they?

"... a noble ex-president."
Noble has a ring of confidence and an air of justness. Not really the things I would associate with Bill Clinton. A "noble ex-president" would look beyond what the media says about him; he would let history speak for itself. But then, Bill knows history will speak ill of his eight years - Monica, Jennifer, perjury, Waco, Blackhawk Down, Ruby Ridge, Elian Gonzalez, Loral missile Technology sales, etc.

"You are aware that Republicans want to say that 9-11 was Clinton's fault."
No, not at all. We readily recognize that mistakes were made by several Presidents, by several agencies, by numerous members of Congress on both sides of the aisle, and by everyday citizens that were paying attention to their daily lives and overlooking obvious signs. But, blame? We blame only one group of people for 9/11. We blame the Islamo-facist terror groups that committed that vile act. No more, no less.

By going back and looking at the entire chain of events, without the veil of personal protection, allows all of us to find the errors made by America that could have prevented this from happening. It also allows for the prevention of future acts. Lies about the record and obfuscation only lends to more errors in the future. If Bill Clinton truly cared about America, as he cares about how history will perceive him, he would stop lying. (How do I know he was lying? He wagged his finger again. That's a sure sign.)

In the interview, Clinton kept referring to Dick Clarke's book. Dick Clarke was in charge of terrorist prevention for the entire Clinton era and parts of both Bush eras. More terrorism occurred on his watch than at any other time in America's history. I don't believe I would rely on someone with that kind of record. However, the 9/11 Commission Report does not support Clinton's claims.

This morning, Condi Rice has come out to dispute Brother Bill's claims. He said that his administration left a comprehensive terror plan in place for the Bush Administration. Rice says that just isn't so. Knowing her track record and Clinton's history of telling the truth, I believe Condi.

Arkansas/Oklahoma Fair 2006

A few items from my weekend at the fair.

Ingenuity:
When the Republican booth temporarily ran out of "ASA" fans, our valiant Republican faithful quietly walked down to the Democrat booth and got themselves a "Beebe" fan. They then returned to the Republican booth to get Asa stickers to cover up the Beebe fan.

Quiet Resolve:
A friend, and fellow Republican, was standing at the Republican booth catching up on old times, when a gentleman walked up. The new guy identified himself as retired Army and proceeded to berate my friend and I for five minutes over how bad President Bush "screwed up" with his jaunt into Iraq. The peeved private stated that his son had volunteered to go on a second tour of duty over in Baghdad, then complained about how all of the soldiers are having to serve more than one tour over there.

Neither my friend nor I spoke, other than to say "I see" or "Yes" to the despondent dirt soldier. When he finally ran out of wind, we simply thank him for his and his sons service and told him how proud we were of both of them.

Our crushed corporal didn't know what to say. He simply turned and walked away.

Hog Wild:
A satellite dish company set up a large screen television one aisle over from the Republican booth. Fortunately, they had the Hog game on. From my vantage point, I could only see a corner of the T.V. - just crowd shots, mostly.

I didn't have any problems knowing who had won, though. When the game ended, the whole show barn erupted in a cheer.

The Third Time is the Charm:
We had one lady come buy the booth three times. On each pass she would say, very loudly, "When Clinton lied, nobody died." On the third pass, someone from behind her called out, "What about Waco and Ruby Ridge?"

I never saw her again.

 

Modern Democrat Beliefs

A friend sent this over the weekend. Many of you may have seen this before, but it is a good reminder of the differences between conservatives and liberals.

Things You Have to Believe to Be a Democrat Today

Democrats refuse to face the fact that the majority of Americans voted Republican because they wanted to.
by Jay D. Dyson

1. Drug addiction is a disease that should be treated with compassion and understanding...unless the addict is a Conservative talk show host.

2. The United States should be subservient to the United Nations. Our highest authority is not God and the U.S. Constitution, but a collective of tinpot dictators (and their appeasers) and the U.N. charter.

3. Government should relax drug laws regardless of the potential for abuse, but should pass new and unConstitutional anti-gun laws because of the potential for abuse.

4. Calls for increased security after a terrorist attack are "political opportunism," but calls for more gun control after a criminal's spree killing is "a logical solution."

5. "It Takes a Village" means everything you want it to mean...except creeping socialist government involvement in the nuclear family.

6. Disarming innocent, law-abiding citizens helps protect them from evil, lawless terrorists and other thugs.

7. Slowly killing an unborn innocent by tearing it apart limb from limb is good. Slowly killing an innocent disabled woman by starving her to death is good. Quickly killing terrorists, convicted murderers and rapists is BAD.

8. Every religion should be respected and promoted in public schools the name of diversity, so long as that religion isn't Christianity.

9. The best way to support our troops is to criticize their every move. This will let them know they're thought of often.

10. Sexual harassment, groping and drug use are degenerate if you're the governor of California, but it's okay if you're the President of the United States.

11. Sex education should be required so that teens can make informed choices about sex, but gun education should be banned because it will turn those same teens into maniacal mass-murderers.

12. Minorities are blameless for the hatred of the racist; women are blameless for the hatred of the rapist; but America is entirely at fault for the hatred of Islamofascists.

13. Poverty is the cause of all terrorism...which is why the leaders of al Qaeda are typically U.S.-educated and were raised in wealth and luxury.

14. The Patriot Act is a horrific compromise of Constitutional rights, but anti-Second Amendment laws and Franklin Roosevelt's Presidential Order 9066 must be regarded "reasonable precautions."

15. We should unquestioningly honor the wishes of our age-old allies, even when said allies no longer act like our allies and have vested economic interests in propping up our enemies.

16. Socialized medicine is the ideal. Nevermind all those people who spend every dime they have to get to the United States so they can get quality medical care...that their nation's socialized medical community can't provide.

17. Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky and Natalie Maines are perfectly qualified to criticize our leadership, but Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charlton Heston, and Dennis Miller are just ignorant political hacks.

18. John Lott's research on how gun ownership reduces crime is junk science, but Michael Bellesiles is still an authority on why gun control is good (even though he was forced to resign from Emory due to research misconduct over his book "Arming America").

19. Bush's toppling the Saddam regime was a "diversion," but Clinton's lobbing a couple of cruise missiles at Iraq in the thick of the Lewinsky sex scandal was "sending a message."

20. A president who lies under oath is okay, but a president who references sixteen words from an allies' intelligence report should be dragged through the streets naked.

21. Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning Second Amendment rights and shopping the courts for judges sympathetic to causes that wouldn't pass in any legislature.

22. "The People" in the First Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Fourth Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Ninth Amendment means The People; "the People" in the Tenth Amendment means The People; but "the People" in the Second Amendment (ratified in 1791) means the National Guard (created by an Act of Congress in 1903).

23. You support a woman's "right to choose" to kill her unborn child, but don't believe that same woman is competent enough to homeschool the children she bears.

24. Proven draft-dodging is irrelevant, but baseless claims of AWOL status is crucial to national security.

25. Threatening to boycott Dr. Laura's and Rush Limbaugh's advertisers is "exercising Freedom of Speech," but threatening to boycott CBS's The Reagans and Liberal actors over their asinine anti-American remarks is "censorship" and "McCarthyist blacklisting."
