Relentless Defeatist


Just a short time ago the United States Senate had the last word on defeatism for the legislative branch of the United States Government. The US Senate brought up for a vote; "the Joint Resolution on Iraq" (also known informally as the Joint Resolution for Surrender in Iraq) the motion failed to get the necessary votes to pass this resolution. The US Senate needed 60 votes in order to pass the resolution but the vote was 56 yeas to 34 nay votes. This is the second attempt and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (d) Nevada said “It is time to move onto something else.

One democrat Senator who constantly craves attention from the press and their cameras Charles Schumer (d) New York had this to say about the vote “democrats would be “relentless.” “There will be resolution after resolution, amendment after amendment . . . just like in the days of Vietnam,” Schumer said. “The pressure will mount, the president will find he has no strategy, he will have to change his strategy and the vast majority of our troops will be taken out of harm’s way and come home.”


Is this the kind of Senator that best represents the feelings of the people of the State of New York? Do the people of New York believe that the United States military should suffer the same humiliation and defeat that the democrats made our military and the rest of the nation suffer so they could have their defeat in Vietnam?

I have watched and opposed mostly everything Charles Schumer has ever said and done since his words have become public record. I still believe the most dangerous place in Washington DC is to be between Charles Schumer and a television camera that is about to be switched on. I’ve written about this particular Senator before and he hardly seems worth the time but I think it necessary to keep poking a stick in the eye of the people of New York until they send someone honorable to represent them in the US Senate.

Sorry folks no poem included when I write about this man, he doesn't deserve the time or effort spent including a poem from my collection. People like Charles Schumer that insist on humilating their own country to further their own narrow, self serving and petty political agenda are dragging the rest of the country down and we must put a stop to them!

Thank you to the 34 US Senators that stood up to show courage against this attack against America and her troops!

The people of the State of NY keep sending the likes of Schumer and Clinton back to the Senate every six years, so I guess that answers your question.

Schumer is just one of many Democratic Senators who make me wonder how any of them can continue getting re-elected to office. Why in God's name do any of them think that our withdrawal of support for the South Vietnamese government was an honorable action on the part of the U.S.? It makes me think that with allies like us...

...thanks to the Democrats in Congress; and today, along with lily-livered white flag Republicans.

It's not that Schumer is just on the wrong side of every issue. It's that he is so arrogant and condescending about it too. If you listen to him speak(which can't be helped if he is near a camera and mike) his tone is one of "I know what is best for you so don't bother disputing things with me".

I know people from upstate New York and they are in the same position as me when it comes to electing Senators. I live in the most conservative county in the state of Pennsylvania and we elect real conservatives. The big cities however have most of the votes and people like Schumer base their elections on promising to keep people under the government umbrella in a permanent "nanny state". The city people love hearing that so they vote for them in droves.

I try and poke them in the eye every time I can about their over reliance on an intrusive, overbearing nanny state government that controls your life from cradle to grave of the Clinton/ Schumer ideal.

There's nothing more maddening to me than listening to "feel-good" policies that do just the opposite of their intentions; or cause side effects and consequences that first stage thinkers don't ever consider. It's easy to posture and pontificate about free health care, tax the rich to help the poor, more money for education...it all sounds nicey nice on the surface. But liberals never think about the unintended consequences; or empirical studies that show affirmative action, welfare, etc. all make things worse. They harm the ones they want to help.

Paul F. said...

Well, you deleted my comment I see. Not in this post but a couple posts back. So much for reality, huh? So much for that Christian mentality. Why don't you just turn on your comment moderation and just not allow opinions and ideas from even coming through at all. You know, just like the Republican Media does. Mind you, I'm not trying to be mean. I'm just saying....

Phil said...

You know the left has got a problem with realizing the reality of what does work from what doesn't work, I really don't think that they actually want to fix any issue, why you say, is because all of their issues has been the very same thing from the mid 70's. Nothing new with them.

Paul F. said...

Well, in my opinion, your Republican version of a fix is akin to what the Taliban did to Afghanistan...

Phil said...

Well in my opinion, your Liberal version of a fix is akin to Neville Chamberlain did for a fix with you liberals hero Adolf Hitler.

J_G said...

I have no idea of what you are talking about Paul. The only comments I deleted are from Christian bashers (meaning anyone that consistantly goes out of their way to purposefully and maliciously bash Christians and their beliefs). If you made a comment on some political issue It never made it on to the page. Don't know what you mean.

You're free to post legitimate comments but unlike other blogs we both may have visited in the past I try and maintain some decorum and dignity here.

Paul F. said...

Oh, that's a good one, Phil. Why don't you come up with something original to say instead of copying me? If I'm not mistaken....(and I'm NOT)...it was the grandfather of your beloved President Bush, Mr. Prescott Bush, who was doing all the business with the Nazis and liking it. That is documented fact, bub... Nice try.

Jen, sorry, I must've overlooked it.

And...P.S. it was Democrat President that made it legal for all of us to homebrew beer in our house. See how much cooler they are? Let's see the Republicans top that one...

They can't because they are full of religious nuts (think Taliban) that like to impose their "religious" views on everybodys' life.

j_g said...

opps! correction I mean:

Phil said...

Hi Jen,

Say where did you get this Liberal kook from, he must have crawled out form under a rock.

J_G said...

Ok guys, no food fights here. Paul,Republicans let the assault weapons ban fade away into annals of history. Americans are again free to own the weapons they choose to defend themsleves against enemies foriegn and domestic as the Constitution guarantees. Much cooler!!!

J_G said...

The current day democrat is a blight and detriment to this great nation. It is because we have failed to hold our public school systems to high standards that we are faced with a politically and historically illiterate population.

The democrat has taken control of the education system and have systematically dumbed down a majority of the current generation to believe that an all encommpassing, cradle to grave government is the answer to all the problems this nation faces. This is indicted by the current crop of candidates that the democrat now fields for office of president. To a person, every single democrat candidate has their own twist on how they will take from the private sector/citizen's an even larger proportion than is already confiscated and give to those that will not contribute to help themselves or others in ploy to gain voters and to further the notion that it is a good idea continue the decent into an entitlement driven society.

J_G said...

Paul, one thing does puzzle me though from your first comment on this post. You added this as part of your complaint about deleting your of comment (which I have no recollection of). "So much for that Christian mentality". Please explain if you would.

The reason I ask is; I know you said you do believe in Christian principles but this type of comment usually comes from those that have some type of axe to grind with Christian beliefs and for the most part are completely misinformed about what those principles are. I don't beleive you are one of those people at all.

Paul F. said...

Hmmm....I need time to answer, but I gotta work right now. In the evening I'll be at band practice, but I will answer when I get home later tonight. Have a nice day!

P.S. I'm not a Democrat either, and I do like the assault weapons and I do agree that the Dems have ruined the education system. I personally feel that it is because they had to make it more "idiot-friendly" considering all the Latin Americans, etc. that are illegally coming over here and popping out their babies at a staggering rate.

Mike's America said...

I see you have a full fledged moonbat. Someone with such a warped view of reality it goes beyond a red state/blue state divide.

Paul is on another planet altogether and the oxygen supply is running low.

Come on pal, that line about Republicans and the Taliban is so lame and tired. Come up with some new material to show how totally vacuous you are.

Now, if you don't mind, back to the subject of this post:

Schumer says they will keep putting up resolutions and obstructing the President's foreign policy "just like in the days of Vietnam.”

They've been trying to relive the glory days of Vietnam for the last 20 years.

And we had basically pulled out US forces from Vietnam and were supporting the South Vietnamese who were suceeding in keeping a lid on the communists when Democrats finally pulled the plug.

The result was a bloodbath which extended throughout the region.

That's not exactly something to be proud of or wish to repeat.

But consequences don't matter when power is the objective.

Democrats used the mess in Vietnam to bash Republicans and that helped elect CARTER.

And of course it was good ole Jimmy who laid the foundation for the Islamic Jihad we are dealing with today.

Only Democrats would want to repeat Vietnam and the debacle of another CARTER-style government.

J_G said...

The dems are so heavily invested in defeat Mike, they have no other place to go but to cut funds from the troops driving them from the field by our enemies. That becomes the real question though; is there any difference between the enemies of our republic foriegn or domestic other than the methods they use to attempt to destroy us.

Find and read some of the other things Schumer is saying too. He says that the days of the idea of limited government promulgated by Reagan conservatives are over and a new idea of an all powerful and encompassing government is the in works from the democrat majority. I say "go for it Chucky!"

Paul F. said...

Really, Mike, because I just made it up on the spot. I guess that just goes to show that great minds think alike.

I guess I don't have an answer for why I made that comment, Jen. Can I retract it? It was just a knee-jerk....

If you think about, though, we did win in Vietnam. It just took awhile to realize the outcome. Communism has been squashed (or at least contained) for the most part and I think that has a lot to do with what happened over in Vietnam.

mariestwocents said...

When I see Schumer I see slimeball. He has that distant look in his eyes like most Democrats do.

Dang Jenn, You are picking up more moonbats than I lol.

Paul F. said...

Moonbat--"a human whose cerebral cortex has turned to silly putty causing him or her to mentally slide down the evolutionary ladder to the level of a winged rat who is influenced by the moon and who wants to eat your brain. These creatures have broken brains and since the brain is the organ that tells us all when we're broken, their broken detection mechanism is unable to tell them that they are barking mad."

Paul F. said...

Well, I haven't resorted to name calling here...

This was an experiment to see if I can have a meaningful discussion with "conservative republicans".

So far I've been told that my hero is Adolph Hitler, I'm a liberal kook who crawled out from under a rock, I'm on another planet with a low oxygen supply, and, finally, I'm a moonbat.

I guess I can just go dawdle off now...Enjoy your meaningful discussions, oh great minds of America. I know, I shouldn't think for myself either. I should just be a lemming....ignorance is bliss after all. Have a good one! Sorry to unstimulate your blog with my ignorance.

Ha! Good try, some of what you typed was correct I must say.

Barking Mad I can deal with, even foaming at the mouth, what exactly are your intentions on my friend's blog?

To voice an opposing opinion? That's all good. She can hold her own when it come to that.

But you have made my curiosity blossom!

Please for those of us that have caught on late enlighten us :-)

Oh no you dont! Not so fast enlightened one!

Moonbat is a loving term for those that actually like conservatives but dont agree with them but insist on hanging around thier blogs anyway and chiming in whenever they feel the need and actually do admire the person that runs the blog! It's actually a loving term unless you turn maniac or something.

We all have one, you are no different!

Jenn likes opposing views here.

I have a feeling you and Jenn will get along fine after you get to know each other. She is at work right now so she will respond hours from now.

Dont be so quick to run off, you are stuck here now and must debate! :-)

Seriously, Jenn is cool you just have to know where she is coming from.

J_G said...

I know Paul from another blog. I was the lone voice of reason over there so I can understand how Paul feels.

Now you know Paul, all you had to do to get things a jumpin was to is to make conservatives the moral equivilent to the Taliban. Very good, at least you learned something from techniques I used over at those blogs;-)

I think we need to abandon such talk and if we disagree on things we can just say "I don't agree" many times that happpens just because of things we believe or were taught by the schools or by your parents.

I make no apologies for being a conservative. I do have some problems with some beliefs that some conservatives have but as you well know from reading my writings over the last year or so at L_G's or L>T's I don't agree with everything that is said by anyone.

C'mon guys, Paul is trying to break free of thinking that has stymied and hundered him in improving himself. There are no victims here. I try and provide people the information they need to free your mind and be the person you can be by putting all that type of thinking behind that drags one down into the mire with the mediocre, the cynical, and the depressed.

This is a fun blog but I have to tell you though the real meaning of barking moonbat is
Barking moonbat
noun. Someone on the extreme edge of whatever their -ism happens to be.
(coined by Perry de Havilland)

Usage:"Definition of a 'barking moonbat': someone who sacrifices sanity for the sake of consistency"


Again, I am still very annoyed because I covered this before in a post before blogger beta ate my blog. Waaah!!!

Anonymous said...

moonbat or barking moonbat, what's the diff.? It's meant to be an insult plain and simple.
so is playing the Hitler card and all that other stuff.

Of course, it's not just conservatives that indulge in name calling, either.

It would be nice if everyone would put a more positive spin on it.

But, I think it's more fun to be right and call names.

J_G said...

Oh I know all about the people calling names. Over at yo... er, I mean some other blogs, "anonymous" I've been called all kinds of names. Of course defending oneself usually deteriorates into a name calling extravaganza. I've read some names that I've never heard of on occassion but mostly the same old stuff. Someone ought to study that behavior to what causes that and what new names we can identify. It would be hard though to pry some of the money away from those guys that are wasting it studying "Global Baloney".

We also take Mastercard and Visa but no American Express. No refunds and no sales tax either. What a deal.

If it were up to Chuckie Schumer he'd want his cut by taxing blogs. If Joe Lieberman defects putting Chuckie back in the minority he's got to give up the above ground office again, poor Chuckie he gets no respect.

J_G said...

I just calls em as I sees em anonymous. Bad guys will always be guys like this Chuckie Schumer. He's been a bad seed ever since he was able to push people out the way to get his face in front of the camera.

Ok. primo politician. I won't argue with that.

L>T it's you, Fancy meeting you here. How ya been? We've been dicussing some political subjects and having a bit a fun at the expense of the politicians I don't care much for.

It's a change from the Anna Nicole story anyway. Who didn't know they play that story to death!

criminys! I pushed the wrong button.

I know you knew it was me, anyway. :)

Qne thing in your theme that I agree, these Politicians are a dispicable group.

Here's hoping you're just as fair when your lot starts annoucing themselves...

J_G said...

Noooo, that was you?

There are people on the right I do not like or agree with on some issues and I would not vote for to become president. I remember when Pat Robertson ran for president years ago. I would have stayed home and not voted for anyone if he were the republican nominee. There are some people that just aren't up for the job. Rudy, Romney, McCain, they have the stature and presence to be president but we'll have to see what they have in mind. I don't just base my decisions on sound bites. I look into what the person believes and what they say they will do and their record of doing what they say they will do.

Given the choices that the democrats have fielded so far there is no question that they have taken a very sharp turn to the left.

I think Obama is the nicest of the bunch and I could probably have a nice conversation with him over a Cappuccino, he seems to be a very personable and likeable man but do I think he should be president? No, his political ideas are far to the left and I can't go for that for president. The others democrats well, one at a time I'm doing a critque of their positions and potentials now.
