America is Problem Free

It's apparently time to celebrate. America must not have any more problems to address in Congress. Harry Reid seems to have plenty of time to throw around condemning people for exercising their free speech rights. Between getting the Senate to condemn moveon.org and later Rush Limbaugh, they've wasted at least 2 weeks that could have been used to do something useful with their time. That is, assuming you can call it useful for them to sit around bitching about how bad Bush is and how his policy sucks.

I may not agree with much, if anything, that moveon.org has to say. I find them disgusting, despicable, and highly offensive. They even border on treasonous and seditious. But they do have a right to say what they say, even if they're completely wrong in saying it. So the Senate had no business drafting a resolution to condemn them for it. Petraeus didn't deserve the things they said about him, but I think he's perfectly capable of defending himself if he thinks he needs to. The fact that he hasn't bothered is an indication to me that he's not interested in playing these games. And we all know Reid and the rest of those phonies in the Senate only passed the resolution for PR points.

On the same token, I tend to agree fairly often with a lot of what Rush Limbaugh has to say, and while I don't really know the circumstances behind his "phony soldiers" comment, I trust that the surge of support he's been getting on it, his own statements on the matter, and the unwavering support of the CEO of Clear Channel USA are all reliable enough sources to indicate that what Rush said wasn't anything like how the liberal press and the democrats in the Senate say it was. So they didn't need to waste anyone's time trying to condemn that either. Especially in light of the fact that Rush has the evidence to prove the whole thing was a lie. Which is typical of the left wing press, they'll pounce on anything they think they can get away with, even in the face of clear evidence that the story they're about to run is entirely false. That they also have the Senate conspiring with them to bolster the whole thing is sickening.

All of you who voted for these lunatics should keep this in mind the next time you want to complain about how the Republicans are oppressive, fascist, mean spirited, evil, or otherwise just plain bad. The last time I checked this kind of schoolyard crap didn't get the time of day when we were in control. And we certainly didn't raise the chilling spectre of government censorship. These condemnations may not seem like much now but it's how oppressive regimes get started.

So go get your party hats, break out the beverages, and book the live entertainment. America has no other problems to solve!

It's kind of funny that you choose to focus on the big bad wolf Reid when it was a largely Republican resolution.

"I trust that the surge of support he's been getting on it, his own statements on the matter, and the unwavering support of the CEO of Clear Channel USA are all reliable enough sources to indicate that what Rush said wasn't anything like how the liberal press and the democrats in the Senate say it was"


So the next time there's a surge of support in favor of something the Dems say, I expect to see you saying that the way Republicans portray it is wrong. Goose and gander, and all that. Oh wait, that wouldn't be hypocritical enough. :-P

"And we certainly didn't raise the chilling spectre of government censorship. These condemnations may not seem like much now but it's how oppressive regimes get started."


That's funny, because again the initial resolution was largely Republican. The Dems were just as stupid to do the same thing with Limbaugh. Oh, and wait, who is it that has been trying to silence criticism of the war on grounds of 'treason', 'sedition' and so forth? Hmm...

       
D'oh, forgot it's square brackets, not less/greater-than.
