10 Myths Conservatives Believe About Liberals.....

Man, I couldn't agree with these more.......

Read them all: 10 Myths about Liberals.....

But here is is a sample:

3. Liberals hate the free market.

If that's so, why does everyone down at the Apple Store know my name?

"any 10-year-old who's played Monopoly (or any adult who's been within reach of a TV or newspaper in the past two months) can tell you how free markets invariably end up. One person ends up owning the whole game board, and everybody else ends up broke. Game over. That's not an accident; it's just how capitalist systems work. Good regulation can go a long way toward preventing that, too."

Lamest of Ducks......

"At the end of a presidency of stupefying ineptitude, he has become the lamest of all possible ducks."

Inquiry Set on Mormon Aid for California Marriage Vote....

Bong Hits 4 Jesus....the latest news....

Remember the "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" guy?

Joseph Frederick of .... Alaska (hmmmm.. irony much?) displayed a banner reading "BONG HITS 4 JESUS" when the Olympic Torch was passing through in 2002 (wow! that long ago?!)

Not amused, his principal (Sarah Palin? kidding) confiscated the banner and suspended him for five days. He shot back something about Thomas Jefferson. She tacked on another five.

Frederick took his free-speech argument to court, with backing from the ACLU.

Five years later it was before the U.S. Supreme Court, with Kenneth Starr (Boo, Hiss!!!!!) representing the school. The court ruled that since Frederick was holding the banner at a "school-supervised" (though not on school grounds) event, the principal had a right to restrict what he said about illegal drugs—even if his message was rather nonsensical.

(It was truly great reading about the SCOTUS discussing "Bong Hits"....)

So....the latest news on Mr. Frederick: Now 25, Frederick is learning Mandarin and teaching English in China. Although he is proud that he stood up for his rights, he regrets "the bad precedent set by the ruling."

His case was finally settled at the state level in November, winning him $45,000 and forcing the school to hold a forum on free speech.

Converting dead Mormons into homosexuals.....

From the Daily Kos:

Mormons have a practice of converting dead people from other religions into Mormons through a practice known as posthumous baptism. Ordinarily, this might just seem a silly act of disrespect towards the individual's personal beliefs and convictions.

However, the Mormons have made an overt effort to posthumously baptize Jewish Holocaust victims. That is not merely silly and disrespectful, that is superfluously offensive. An agreement between Jews and Mormons limited the practice thirteen years ago. But the Mormons returned to the practice recently.

Well, then of course, many of us rightly took offense for the heavy Mormon influence during the Prop 8 vote in California. Well, I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I am converting dead Mormons into homosexuals.

My first Conversion is Joseph Smith.

Time to Shop at Lowes.......

Home Depot Founder: Retailers Who Don't Support GOP "Should Be Shot"

Home Depot's founder Bernie Marcus said on a conference call yesterday:

"If a retailer has not gotten involved with this, if he has not spent money on this election, if he has not sent money to Norm Coleman and these other guys," Mr. Marcus said, apparently referring to Republican senators facing tough re-election fights, then those retailers "should be shot; should be thrown out of their goddamn jobs."

Nice!......I think its time to shop at Lowes.....

What IS the Matter With Kansas Anyway.....?

WICHITA, KAN. -- A Wichita, Kansas preacher says he will not remove a message on his church sign that says President-Elect Barack Obama is a Muslim.

The sign is staying up despite the fact that Obama is a Christian.

The sign at Spirit One Christian Center reads, "America we have a Muslim president. This is sin against the Lord."

Obama supporters reportedly got into a shouting match with parishioners outside the church on Sunday.

Obama Won McCain's Home Precinct By 13 Points.....

John McCain may have won Arizona by nine points over Barack Obama, but he lost his home precinct. Election data from Maricopa County shows that the state's very own presidential nominee lost to Obama by 13 points in McCain's Colonnade precinct: 42 percent for McCain, 55 percent for Obama.

Life After the Oil Crash..... article about Peak Oil and what it all means for us....

I was recently sitting around at a wedding and we were speculating on what we would all do if the economy really really collapsed. To the point of barter, buy a shotgun and grow your own food. We all tried to figure out what skills we had that we could use in such an "economy" and what foods would be best to grow for the best resale value.


Guess we are not the only ones thinking like this.

Here is the article:

52% of evangelicals who voted for McCain think Obama is or was a Muslim

Amazing. Cognitive Dissonance. They believe what they want to regardless of reality .

Boycott Marriott Brands!.......

For their support of Prop 8 - boycott these businesses:

Marriott Brands

Mormon Thieves.....

Boycott Utah!......

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah's growing tourism industry and the star-studded Sundance Film Festival are being targeted for a boycott by bloggers, gay rights activists and others seeking to punish the Mormon church for its aggressive promotion of California's ban on gay marriage.

Read about it at Yahoo News: Utah faces boycott after Mormon work for Prop 8 must stop yourselves from staying at the Marriott, from going to Sundance , from biking in Moab, from hiking Zion.....what a pity, but they deserve it.

There also should be a law in California preventing out of state meddling with our Constitution. Why on earth it takes a simple majority to mod the constitution, while a tax increase for BART takes 2/3's is beyond me.

And on the lighter side, a Mormon called me a "fag" and a "loser" for proposing the elimination of their tax exempt status. Nice family oriented people those Mormons. Of course this a** doesn't seem to understand that hetero families - married - with children - can in fact support the rights of their gay friends for marriage.

I have decided that "social conservative" is code for "racist homophobe".
and "small town values" is code for "stupid, narrow minded, racist, religious fanatical white people just like us"

Give me Big City values any time. Folks in big cities understand that interdependence and collaboration among all of us is key to survival - not "going it alone" and waiting for things to "trickle down".

REVOKE Tax Exempt Status for the Mormon Church!....

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the “Mormon” or LDS Church) has gone too far in promoting the 2008 California Proposition 8, which would claims to amend the California state constitution to define marriage as one man and one woman in order to supersede a state supreme court opinion issued earlier this year. [Whether the proposition was a lawful amendment or a revision that cannot legally be made by a voter initiative remains an open question.]

The LDS church, through inciting its members to donate time and means to support Proposition 8(resulting in millions of dollars of cash contributions from its members and countless volunteer hours), and in-kind campaign contributions to a group that supports Proposition 8, has now made a substantial part of its activities attempting to influence legislation.

You can help! Send the IRS an official complaint about the LDS Church’s activities, either by email, fax or US Mail.

A Puppy!........

Ok, Barack Obama is all kinds of alright...and now the word is out that - yes - promised the girls a puppy....and its likely to be a rescued puppy - a homeless puppy....


If you want a puppy of your own...go to - there are thousands of dogs/puppys out there - many purebred - looking for a kind home.

More backstory.....

This is not a surprise:

From Newsweek (got to get that issue!)

"The Obama campaign was provided with reports from the Secret Service showing a sharp and very disturbing increase in threats to Obama in September and early October, at the same time that the crowds at Palin rallies became more frenzied. Michelle Obama was shaken by the vituperative crowds and the hot rhetoric from the GOP candidates. "Why would they try to make people hate us?" Michelle Obama said to a top campaign aide."

Gosh, Michelle - love ya, but you are naive sweetie.... The GOP tactics are evil and "Rovian".

"Palin asked to speak along with McCain at his Arizona concession speech but campaign strategist Steve Schmidt vetoed the request."

"Obama was never inclined to choose Sen. Hillary Clinton as his running mate, not so much because she had been his sometime bitter rival on the campaign trail, but because of her husband."

"McCain, on the other hand, was relieved to face Biden as the veep choice, and not Hillary Clinton, whom the McCain camp had truly feared."

Good Dirt......can't resist....!

Ok, Ok, no gloating, but still.....

Palin's behaviour is even worse than you thought!

Read here : Wasillia Hillbillies Loot Saks

Some tasty excerpts:

"Palin's shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported."

..."told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family--clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus..."

..."vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill"....

..."estimated that she spent "tens of thousands" more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband"

..."Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast,"...."

WTF California?......

Prop 8 passes? WTF?

I think that tax -exempt status should be TAKEN AWAY from any church (Hello Mormons!) that pushed this piece of crap down our throats.

Call the IRS!!!!!

And So it Begins.....

Robert F Kennedy as head of the EPA? -It's possible - read about it at the HuffPo

That would be great!

Open Letter to the Red States......

Dear Red States:

If you manage to steal this election too we've decided we're leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us. In case you aren't aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to
the people of the new country of New California.

To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood.

We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.

We get 85% of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama.

We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq , and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines, 90% of all cheese, 90% of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT. With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92% of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

Additionally, 38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

Finally, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico

Peace out,

Blue States
