Are you looking for the CURRENT VERSION of the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler?

Perhaps the fucking idiot should stick to empty platitudes about “Teh Change” and “Hope”, because, when he actually starts speaking about his “ideas”, it’s some scary shit.

YouTube Preview Image

Quoteth the Obamessiah;

“As the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning, as president I will end it.”

First off, the asshat doesn’t specifically say the “War in Iraq”. Leaving aside the fact that there is only one war, with two major theaters of operation, does he really mean just the “War in Iraq”? I doubt it. He is specifically telling the enemy that we will quit– That we will surrender, turn tail and run. The man who would invade a nuclear armed ally, and talk with an enemy who is working to be nuclear armed, has just told the Jihadist that they will win if he is elected President. Way to undo 6 years of sacrifice in one policy statement there Hussein. “I can run away faster than any one else! Yeah me!”
Secondly, considering the success of the war effort in Iraq, a success so remarkable that even the New Yawk Slimes has to take notice, is that really an advisable policy position to put out there for one and all to hear? Isn’t that the type of Manchurian Candidate treason your supposed to keep close to your chest? Just wondering.

And He of the Dumbo Ears continues;

“I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems…”

Hey bright one, watched the news lately? We just shot down a FREAKING SATELLITE MOVING AT 5 MILES A SECOND IN ORBIT! Not exactly what I would call “unproven”. There are dozens of “unproven” missile defense systems currently in service. I seem to recall we even docked one of those “unproven” systems in Haifa a while back just for a little “insurance”. Here’s hoping that a Jihadi ass rapes you with an ICBM. I’ll be over here with our unproven missile defense system.

He Whose Middle Name is Not to Be Spoken then drops these pearls;

“I will not weaponize space, I will slow the developement of future combat systems…”

Yeah, slowing future weapons systems and fighting the last war has worked so well in the past. Just ask the Fwench as they hunkered down behind the impenetrable Maginot Line in ‘40. I’m sure that our troops on the front line really appreciate that. And I hate to break this to ya skippy, but space already is weaponized. And even if it weren’t, you can bet your over-sized mulatto ears-of-indeterminate-religious-background that some one else would. But wait, I forgot, he has spoken the almighty “I”. He alone rules over all and when the Obamamessiah speaks, the world swoons.

“I will institute a …yada yada board to ensure the the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.”

How about we get the same thing for welfare and every other piece of shit federal “entitlement” program to ensure that the leeches you pander to don’t get one fucking red cent of our society’s producers’ money, hmmm? Why so quiet there Bambi? And you can bet your sweet ass that this “independent” board won’t even know what end the bullet comes out of (any volunteers to demonstrate it for ‘em?). Can you just imagine the likes of Jane Fonda and Code Pink deciding how the DoD gets to spend our money?

“Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons…”

I can dreeaaaamm!!! Unicorns and fairies and pixies, of my! Sorry there dude, that genie’s long out of the bottle.

“I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material…”

We all know how well bans work, don’t we? But beyond that, this ultra-maroon just said that he will shut down every nuclear reactor on the planet. Does he even realize how stupid he is, or he is too stupid to realize how truly Stooopid he is?

The thought of this asshole as Commander-in-Chief scares me so bad I think I just shat myself.

(H/T to Dollard and Blackfive for the heads up).

    beautiful, in one swell foop he has listed the three best reasons i have heard for voting against him. :em69:

  2. LC Intellectual Conservative Comment by LC Intellectual Conservative UNITED STATES

    Anyone ELSE want to say there’s no difference between Obama and McCain??

    And no, I am NO great fan of John McCain … I wanted Romney to win the nod. But .. this is our choice .. either watch as Obama wins and basically surrenders in the WoT but our flippin NUKES AS WELL?!!?!?!?!?? …. OR …. vote for McCain

    Staying home this time .. even on the Presidential thing .. is NOT an option this time. The President does NOT need Congressional approval to stand down our nukes to the extent he wants to do.

    Yeah. At least Osama Obama is looking you in the eye when he’s telling you that he’s going to fuck you. McVain sneaks up behind you with a knife and a bottle of jalapeño-infused K-Y Jelly®.

  6. LC Intellectual Conservative Comment by LC Intellectual Conservative UNITED STATES

    And do you think for a moment McCain would surrender in the Wot, and our nukes??

    Seriously??

    Think before you answer that one.

    How long do you think it’d take before those who would take us down actually invaded with conventional arms, if we went ahead and disarmed like Obama wants? Like the rest of the planet would give up their nukes?

    I can see it now … Kum ba Yah ….. Kum Ba … SHBOOM!

    Im definately going to get it. After reading this stuff..I mean..I knew the guy was a raving moonbat, but to actually pull down our pants, bend us over and invite the world to take turns on us. I have a feeling I’ll be needing lots of ammo.

  9. B.C., Imperial Torturer™ Comment by B.C., Imperial Torturer™ UNITED STATES

    Do YOU seriously think that the entire US Congress is stupid enough to let the idiot get away with something as idiotic as trying to get rid of all of our nukes? As has been pointed out in the not-too-distant past, there’s no way any of the front-runners are going to unilaterally pull our troops from the WoT on THEIR watch. The Jihadis have been getting their asses handed to them and, despite the Lamestream Midiots™ trying their damnedest to prevent it, word has gotten out that they’re in dire straits.

    Osama Obama & Shillary are, at the moment, pandering to the only people who would ever even consider voting for them by trying to “out-surrender” each other. If/when he/she elected, there’s no way in Hell that he/she is going to let the WoT be lost on his/her watch. A president can set policy, but to completely ignore the advice of the generals in the field, in this day and age of instantaneous information dissemination, would be political suicide. The Surge™ has been working better than anyone could have hoped for and to abandon the place and have it fall into the hands of Osama’s Seventh Century Pisslamic Savages™, to be used as a launching pad for terrorist strikes elsewhere (Read: Here.), would not sit well with the American electorate and would, more importantly in a politician’s mind, soil their “legacy” beyond reprieve.

  10. Unregistered Comment by curmudgeon1 UNITED STATES

    I’m toying with the idea of writing Vladimir Putin to ask if he would consider making us here in ‘fly-over
    country’ a Russian protectorate and having him let one fly on Innauguration day. At least he thinks like a white guy. If he were to do it, nobody would be able to tell Obambis ass from a hole in the D.C. But then this is political theatre of the absurd. Fantasy is reality. And the question is, what head of state in the rest of the world is laughing loudest?

  11. LC SkyeChild G.L.O.R. Comment by LC SkyeChild G.L.O.R. UNITED STATES

    I think B.C. is right about them not pulling troops out. My feeling is that if they do, and we get attacked, that will be a one-term for that particular president.

    Say what you will about W (and we’ve said LOTS), we haven’t had an attack on American soil since 9-11, and it ain’t cause he’s “making nice.”

  12. Naviguesser Comment by Naviguesser UNITED STATES

    Is it me, or is he partying like it’s 1917? Most of the shit spewing out of his suck sounds like it could have come out of Lenin’s or Trotsky’s mouths. Hey, 100 million dead Russians can’t be wrong.

    IIRC, Part of Lenin’s draw back then, in addition to his bolshevik ideals, was his insistence on ending hostilities with Germany. Look where that got them, first time around.

    Even those (like us) who learn from history are surrounded by those doomed to repeat it.

  14. DJ Allyn,  ITW Comment by DJ Allyn, ITW

    So I found a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 for $799.95
    Im definately going to get it. After reading this stuff..I mean..I knew the guy was a raving moonbat, but to actually pull down our pants, bend us over and invite the world to take turns on us. I have a feeling I’ll be needing lots of ammo.

    Uh…

    Gee, and Misha was wondering out loud why people are worried that Obama is going to get killed.

    Frankly, he is a breath of fresh air. Instead of rattling the saber and pounding our chest, he actually aims to try and defuse the world threats.

    We tried your way and all it did was stir things up more. Now it is time for cooler heads to prevail.

    Most of us in this country want to LOWER the tension in the world, not keep it pumped up on high. We’ve had enough of your war orgies, your insane celebration over spilled blood. Obama offers hope, you only offer more fear.

    Why do you feel the need to have an excuse to buy a gun? If you want one, buy it! But there is no need to have to pretend that you really NEED to have it in case the boogie man comes.

    And Crunchie, getting back to your synopsis of what Obama said:

    First off, the asshat doesn’t specifically say the “War in Iraq”. Leaving aside the fact that there is only one war, with two major theaters of operation, does he really mean just the “War in Iraq”?

    Yes, he means specifically Iraq. Going into Iraq was not needed. Obama fully supported going into Afghanistan — because that was where Al Qaeda was. They weren’t in Iraq, until we took out Saddam. Saddam, being the brutal dictator that kept Iran from becoming as powerful as they are now.

    Afghanistan, the “forgotten war” has Al Qaeda in Afghanistan being more powerful today than any time prior to 2001. From every official report, it is telling us that things are more dangerous now than before 9/11. But idiots like Bush, and apologists like the group here, thought it was such a great idea to USE the attacks of 9/11 to profit on a war in Iraq.

    Obama, like most people in this country (and the world, for that matter) feel it is past time to cut bait and leave Iraq to the Iraqis.

    Hey bright one, watched the news lately? We just shot down a FREAKING SATELLITE MOVING AT 5 MILES A SECOND IN ORBIT!

    Okay, I am not an expert, but I do have a smidgeon of common sense and know just a bit about physics and science.

    I think that there is a huge difference between a projected orbit of a satellite that has been up there for a while and a ICBM launched at a moment’s notice. The satellite has been running on a predicted projectory for a long time, and we knew were it was going to be five minutes, ten minutes, ten hours, and even ten days from now. An ICBM launched by an enemy you only have fifteen to thirty minutes to figure out where it is going to be and when — and that is IF you even know about it in time.

    The thought of this asshole as Commander-in-Chief scares me so bad I think I just shat myself.

    Should I buy a lot of stock in Depends and Pampers? Because Obama is going to be the next CIC for the next eight years, and I would hate to miss out on the boon.

    Okay, time for a reality check…

    Obama is a politician, not a magician. The man can tell you the sky is made of marshmellows with jelly bean planets, and that life is going to be like playing a big game of Candyland. The reality is, he is going to do as much as Congress lets him, and given the productivity of Congress, that isn’t very much.

    In other words, Obama — for all the hope and sunshine he projects — not much is going to change, except how the world perceives us.

    So hey, buy your guns. Keep ‘em oiled and practice every day. Have fun with that. Hopefully you will figure out that fun is all you are going to get out of your guns. And so be it.

  15. Tallulah Comment by Tallulah UNITED STATES

    This is why I’m voting for McCain.

    Hussein Obama will definitely yank our troops out of Iraq. Why not? Nixon pulled our soldiers out of Vietnam, and had the gall to call it “peace with honor.”

    No honor for us, and no peace for the South Vietnamese. The Dems would swoon over the chance to hurt our country — it’s what they live for.

    Please understand this, folks: it is what they live for. They hate their own country, spit at the mention of patriotism, get their panties in a bunch at the thought of wearing a harmless flag pin, trash-mouth us to the rest of the world without ceasing, and really do believe we are the Root of All Evil in the world.

    Nothing would please the Dems and their Glorious Leader, Laser-Brain Obama, than to inflict an inglorious defeat on our beloved country.

  19. Tom The Impaler Comment by Tom The Impaler UNITED STATES

    And DJ Allyn, let me clue you in, since you’re apparently not sharp enough to have picked it up in a lifetime of observation.

    Dictators are not impressed by treaties. they grin and sign the things then ignore them and do what the hell they want. Hell the whole history of Israel for instance goes like this.

    1: UN forces/ urges/ suggests Israel make a treaty with Yasser Arafat.

    2: Yasser and Israel sign treaty.

    3: Yasser waits 3 months then detonates bomb in a Jerusalem bus and blames it on the Mossad.

    4: Repeat as necessary, apparently hundreds of times.

    Jesus dude, drop your “reasoning” skills and use the much simpler observation skills.

    Yasser, Saddam, Stalin, Hitler, pick your dictator, you’ll see all kinds of pretty parchments and collectible autographs, and not one goddamn bit of good it did. Treaties and agreements only work with trusted associates.

    Im definately going to get it. After reading this stuff..I mean..I knew the guy was a raving moonbat, but to actually pull down our pants, bend us over and invite the world to take turns on us. I have a feeling I’ll be needing lots of ammo.

    Uh…

    Gee, and Misha was wondering out loud why people are worried that Obama is going to get killed.

    Strike one. you know damned well that Templar_Knight has no intention of doing anything of the sort.

    Frankly, he is a breath of fresh air. Instead of rattling the saber and pounding our chest, he actually aims to try and defuse the world threats.

    We tried your way and all it did was stir things up more. Now it is time for cooler heads to prevail.

    … We have the entire islamic terrorist front on the ropes, and you want to give up? Newsflash. there is nothing we can do, short of commiting mass suicide, that will make the world like us. Period. And then they’d bitch about the smell, and demand that we pay for the clean up. While the -crowd- loves a winner, everyone else in the race hates his fucking guts. America has been winning that race for about 80 years now. And suprise, nobody else in the race likes us…

    Most of us in this country want to LOWER the tension in the world, not keep it pumped up on high. We’ve had enough of your war orgies, your insane celebration over spilled blood. Obama offers hope, you only offer more fear.

    fear of what? winning? fear of stable democracy in iraq? Fear of not having another 9-11 to use to finish the creation of the biggest police state in the history of mankind?

    and another thing. read this next line carefully. “There. is. no. war. orgy.” We ‘crazy military people’ dont actually like to kill people. Oh some of us might like a good bar brawl, and there a a -very- select few who do like killing ( when we discover them we put them in mental hospitals, go figure… ). what most of us enjoy, is the -art- of combat. the level of skill that puts the bad guys with thier pants down, and nothing left to do but surrender. winning without having to kill is something we -aspire- to. But you dont grasp that. Simpler for you to hang your -own- nightmares around our necks, and scream ‘murderer’.

    Why do you feel the need to have an excuse to buy a gun? If you want one, buy it! But there is no need to have to pretend that you really NEED to have it in case the boogie man comes.

    And if he had talked about any -other- appliance, you’d have glossed right over it. Seriously, get a grip on your hoplophobia, it’s doing bad things to your mind.

    And Crunchie, getting back to your synopsis of what Obama said:

    First off, the asshat doesn’t specifically say the “War in Iraq”. Leaving aside the fact that there is only one war, with two major theaters of operation, does he really mean just the “War in Iraq”?

    Obama, like most people in this country (and the world, for that matter) feel it is past time to cut bait and leave Iraq to the Iraqis.

    first of all, we -are- in the process of ‘leaving iraq for the iraqis’. we’re simply doing it in such a manner as to insure that the iranian army doesnt roll over the sand dune as soon as we board the plane.

    The other half of the problem is this. Iraq makes one of the -best- staging areas in the entire middle east. get a map of southwest asia, and -look- at it. Iraq is perfectly situated.

    Hey bright one, watched the news lately? We just shot down a FREAKING SATELLITE MOVING AT 5 MILES A SECOND IN ORBIT!

    Okay, I am not an expert, but I do have a smidgeon of common sense and know just a bit about physics and science.

    I think that there is a huge difference between a projected orbit of a satellite that has been up there for a while and a ICBM launched at a moment’s notice.

An ICBM launched by an enemy you only have fifteen to thirty minutes to figure out where it is going to be and when — and that is IF you even know about it in time.

    sigh.. lemme clear this up for you. -Every- possible firing arc for any known installation to any know target has been calculated long ago. mutliple sensor systems can pinpoint the missile, and determine it’s target within 15-60 seconds of launch. and this was state of the art, 25 -years- ago. We’re doing -slightly- better now.

    we can figure the arc, and have countermeasures in the air in….. less than 5 minutes, if the dems will -let- us. And if they’d quit fucking about with SDI, and launch THOR sats, we’d be golden.

    The thought of this asshole as Commander-in-Chief scares me so bad I think I just shat myself.

    Should I buy a lot of stock in Depends and Pampers? Because Obama is going to be the next CIC for the next eight years, and I would hate to miss out on the boon.

    Riiiight. Not if I can help it. while McCain makes me gag, this was enough to change my mind.

    Okay, time for a reality check…

    Obama is a politician, not a magician. The man can tell you the sky is made of marshmellows with jelly bean planets, and that life is going to be like playing a big game of Candyland. The reality is, he is going to do as much as Congress lets him, and given the productivity of Congress, that isn’t very much.

    but will be -more- than enough to cripple us in very nasty ways. nu-uh, nothing doing sunshine.

    In other words, Obama — for all the hope and sunshine he projects — not much is going to change, except how the world perceives us.

    Obama could buy blowjobs from the very best in nevada for the entire goddamn planet, and they still wont like us. See my previous explanation as to why.

    So hey, buy your guns. Keep ‘em oiled and practice every day. Have fun with that. Hopefully you will figure out that fun is all you are going to get out of your guns. And so be it.

    this is one of the few thingsyou say that I can agree with. I very much hope that all I get out of my guns is fun, and food. The thought of having to shoot -anyone- Robber, jackboot, invader, -anyone- makes me sad. Please note, ’sad’ does not mean ‘unwilling’ I’ll do it, and do it quickly. I just wont like it.

    One last thing. why do you persist in such lousy arguments. there are -much- better choices you know. Ones that -dont- make you look like a dumbass.

    And before you shunt this comment anywhere, please remember, by implying that Templar was some sort of crackpot with fantasies of assassinating Obama, -you- opened the door.

    Oh certainly, you ’said no such thing’ but we all know exactly what you were implying. ‘Racist, paranoid, gun-nut’. Bluntly put, I’m tired of it. You, Sir, need to get a better class of argument. If you persist in such low forms of debate, I shall roll up my sleeves, and show you what for.

  23. Thresher Redux Comment by Thresher Redux UNITED STATES

    Hey

    Tom

    , are you a fan of the Laughing Man? I loooooove GitS in all it’s carnations (particularly fond of 2nd GiG, though).

    Know who I’d love to see run for President? Saito. He’d wax Ahmadinnejad from 3.5 miles away with some massive sabot firing, satellite-guided, man-portable, engine of destruction. From a moving helicopter. Or Batou. He’d just kill the Turbaned One in hand to hand.

    Anyway, as for the matter at hand… I tremble at the idea of this man becoming President. Seriously, I felt like puking after watching that. ON THE OTHER HAND, the more comments he makes like this, the more of the fundamentally moderate but star struck followers he has will leave him. If he keeps this up for the duration, he will be a Kucinich-like laughing stock come November.

    I salivate at the prospect of the first McCain v. Obama debate.

  24. Tom The Impaler Comment by Tom The Impaler UNITED STATES

    Bah, this is just red meat for the DJs of the party, who can’t get enough of this shit. Kinda like how us conservatives are nourished on the blood of innocent babies and small puppies.

    “Please sir, may I have some more Hope? And perhaps a small dollop of some Change as well?”

    Don’t forget that Obama isn’t going to be a frickin’ monarch if he is elected. If we do a half-decent job of electing some conservatives to congress, then he’s going to have a hell of a time trying to implement his utopia (where we unilaterally disarm while the jihadis lick their lips and laugh their asses off at us).

    Funny thing about liberals…socialism and communism have failed miserably everywhere they have been tried, but they still think it’s just because it hasn’t been done right yet. This time we’ll get it right! And maybe we’ll only have to purge 1 million this time! I guess that’s why Obama can sell nothing but “hope” and “change”, and get half the population swooning over his coughing spells.

  26. Tom The Impaler Comment by Tom The Impaler UNITED STATES

    Thresher,

    Yeah, I’m a big GITS fan, I really think American TV and movie producers ought to watch the whole series with note pads. Unfortunately we’d just end up with a poor copy, with dumbed down plot, shabby dialog and with the names changed to protect copyright.

  27. Unregistered Comment by Draven32

    I think that there is a huge difference between a projected orbit of a satellite that has been up there for a while and a ICBM launched at a moment’s notice. The satellite has been running on a predicted projectory (should say trajectory) for a long time, and we knew were it was going to be five minutes, ten minutes, ten hours, and even ten days from now. An ICBM launched by an enemy you only have fifteen to thirty minutes to figure out where it is going to be and when — and that is IF you even know about it in time.

    Said system has intercepted a dummy ICBM from a ‘random’ launcher (as has been said, all ICBM launch tubes are tracked) and shot it down in a test. They didn’t know which launcher it was coming from until it launched.

    An ICBM launch makes a BIG IR target that can be sen from orbit. We had pretty much nailed being able to spot and track an ICBM launch in the early ’80s- at least well enough to be able to know where it was. And this is with early ’80s computers, which, need I remind you, were roughly 100x slower than the systems currently available*.

    Desktop systems now can reverse-track the trajectory of a bullet and triangulate its source from two rounds- and that trick was done by a computer that fit into a 16U rack mount five years ago.

    A patch for the latest revision Phalanx CIWS means that they are now used in Iraq to plot and shoot down mortar rounds fired into the green zone. With no warning and minimal tracking time. The computers in this Phalanx revision are at least 10 years old, since they are Block 1B Phalanx units designed in 1997-1998.

    *- based on the difference between my current PC and the 68040 Amiga I started using 3D on in 1996, performance in the same Lightwave scene… extrapolated back to the ’80s. Likely, it is significantly more.

  28. Templar_Knight Comment by Templar_Knight

    Wow DJ thats a pretty far reach you got there. Way to just go off the deep end.

    But its OK. I understand you think everyone that wants to defend their home (aka: remain free), is some sort of knuckledragging, warmongering, cave dwelling retard, hell bent on destroying the world with bombs and global warming. Its ok, we forgive you. You just dont understand how great freedom is right now. Maybe someday when we actually screw around and lose it all, you might understand why people are so vehement about the idea of keeping it.

    Its easy to take for granted and pretend to be so above everyone else by painting them as racists or conspiracy nuts. Acting as if nothing in the past really matters. There was no 9/11, there was no Beruit Embassy, there was no Hostage crisis in Iran, there was no Tripoly. It was all OUR fault right? You just cant see the forest for the trees can you?

    Anyone ELSE want to say there’s no difference between Obama and McCain??

    Nope. Not saying that, Intellectual Conservative, not at all.

    But there’s one little snag that even the Obamessiah has to overcome regarding his insane policies: He’s running for President, not Absolute Monarch. Sure, he might think that he’ll become Ruler of All He Sees™ if he moves into the Oval Office, but I’m sure that quite a few previous Presidents with much less grandiose ambitions would be happy to set him straight on that little issue.

    Insane twerps like Obamarx are exactly the reason why our Founders, in their infinite wisdom, included a system of checks and balances in our governmental setup. He’s running for chief executive. When it comes to the legislative part, his powers are limited to either signing off on or vetoing whatever the legislative branch, Congress, sees fit to send to his desk.

    And I dare say that the Congresscritters, particularly when their constituents who are, after all, the ones who keep them in their sinecures, remind them, will be more than just a little bit hesitant in letting him have his psychopathological ways.

    Hmmm- who was it again who said. “Israel will be wiped off the map?” HINT: Not a US President. Who is it who has had nukes for over 60 YEARS? We used them, in one conflict, to actually shorten a brutal war. Unless I missed something, we haven’t used them since. Yet the nation with the fourth largest natural gas reserves in the world wants a nuclear “power” plant? Yeah, right- we’re paranoid. WE’RE the ones who murder innocents by the thousands in the name of Allah, or millions in the name of communism or socialism. Who is it, among all the enlightened, merciful, caring, loving, EURO nations, who does as much for their friends as we do on a daily basis for our sworn enemies? Oh yeah, we’re the paranoid, heartless warmongers, all right. Sheesh, that record’s broken. Throw it out and try a new one, okay?

    The legislative branch was run by Demonrats last year too when they tried to pull this crap. And it failed.

    Are they focusing on the important matters of the people? nope.

    No, they’re too busy focusing on whether fucking Roger fucking Clemens fucking lied about doing fucking steroids, as if it’s the business of the Congress to regulate drug use in professional baseball… and of course HDTV.

    And while McCain and the libs differ on the war, the rest of their agenda matches up pretty well.

    Nowhere is McCain’s chicanery and duplicity more jeopardous than in the area of the right to keep and bear arms. On issues relating to the Second Amendment, John McCain is a disaster! For example, the highly respected Gun Owners of America (GOA) rates McCain with a grade of F-. McCain’s failing grade is well deserved.

    John McCain sponsored an amendment to S. 1805 on March 2, 2004 that would outlaw the private sale of firearms at gun shows. According to GOA, the provision would effectively eliminate gun shows, because every member of an organization sponsoring a gun show could be imprisoned if the organization fails to notify each and every “person who attends the special firearms event of the requirements [under the Brady Law].”

    John McCain also sponsored an Incumbent Protection provision to the so-called “Campaign Finance Reform” bill, which severely curtails the ability of outside groups (such as GOA) to communicate the actions of incumbent politicians to members and supporters prior to an election.

    The GOA report of the 106th Congress reveals that out of 15 votes relating to the right to keep and bear arms, Senator John McCain voted favorably only 4 times. Put that into a percentage and McCain’s pro-Second Amendment voting record is a pathetic 27%.

    [...]

    For example, President George W. Bush recently nominated Michael Sullivan to be Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. Sullivan is one of the nation’s most rabid anti-gunners. GOA’s Larry Pratt describes Sullivan as being “as anti-gun as Ted Kennedy.” Honest gun owners, lawful firearms dealers, and law-abiding gun show operators could have no worse enemy within the federal government than Michael Sullivan. We could expect no worse from Hillary Clinton. And a John McCain Presidency would doubtless give us more of the same.

  43. LC SkyeChild G.L.O.R. Comment by LC SkyeChild G.L.O.R. UNITED STATES

    Shamelessly lifted from Boortz:

    MCCAIN AND OBAMA ON IRAQ

    Ok so let’s set the stage. Barack Obama and John McCain had a little back and forth yesterday over al Qaeda’s presence in Iraq. Here’s how it went:

    Obama made this statement during the debate two nights ago: “Now, I always reserve the right for the president — as commander in chief, I will always reserve the right to make sure that we are looking out for American interests. And if al Qaeda is forming a base in Iraq, then we will have to act in a way that secures the American homeland and our interests abroad.”

    John McCain fired back with this comment: “I have some news. Al Qaeda is in Iraq. It’s called Al Qaeda in Iraq. My friends, if we left, they wouldn’t be establishing a base. They’d be taking a country, and I’m not going to allow that to happen, my friends.”

    Then Obama decided to respond to McCain’s comments: “I have some news for John McCain … There was no such thing as Al Qaeda in Iraq until George Bush and John McCain decided to invade Iraq.”

    Say what you will about your beliefs of al Qaeda in Iraq before the war. Dick Cheney asserts that al Qaeda was operating in Iraq before March 2003 and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was leading the branch. But the fact of the matter is … in Obama’s statement during the debate, he seemed completely unaware that not only has al Qaeda “formed a base” in Iraq, but it is responsible for much of the unfortunate bloodshed in Iraq and in many other countries. That will make for a great commander and chief.

    Okay, I am not an expert, but I do have a smidgeon of common sense and know just a bit about physics and science.

    I think that there is a huge difference between a projected orbit of a satellite that has been up there for a while and a ICBM launched at a moment’s notice. The satellite has been running on a predicted projectory for a long time, and we knew were it was going to be five minutes, ten minutes, ten hours, and even ten days from now. An ICBM launched by an enemy you only have fifteen to thirty minutes to figure out where it is going to be and when — and that is IF you even know about it in time.

    *** Raps ruler on desk*** Attention class Space Slackin..er I mean Space tracking 101 is now in session***

    Mmm..not always true, that is why LEO’s (Low Earth Oribits) are tracked across the globe at regular and constant intervals, Solar flares, the warming of the atmosphere, fluxuations in gravity, etc. Will all lead to what is known in Space Surveillance circles as a “stale” orbital element set, thus risking the loss of a sats posit.

    Trust me it is no fun to try to track a bird off of old data even 10 hours old, at best you get lucky and hit it, at worst your searching an ever widening patch of sky and watching the chances of detection dwindle, space junk is a prime example of this, it is a cast iron bitch to track some of that stuff because it does not always do what one would “predict” it to do up there.

    This is also especially true for HI-E orbits. Or Highly Eliptical, (Mean Motion 2) the Old Soviet Union and I believe the current Russian military still use those types of orbits with the nativgational birds.

    GeoSynch birds or Deep Space objects are slightly different in that they are comparised of a Mean Motion 1 Orbit, and appear to remain stationary over the surface of the earth, these are your telecom birds, and some are military. They hang at an orbit of 22,000 miles. And even those have to be tracked carefully multiple times a day as various things can change with their orbits. Have a telcom bird due a station keeping manuaver and watch the gnashing of teeth in a control room when the OES all have to be rebuilt.

    Anyhow, You are in the ballpark (of course out there in left field you are the token liberal here…LMAO ) with the difference in a projected orbit of a sat and a missle but only because the ICBM will never truly obtain orbit, to maintain LEO orbit an object must be able to reach an altitude and speed to maintain 16 or less Revs a day, anything lower in altitude or higher in revs and it will burn in. An ICBM for all intent and purposes is running an OES with around 19-20 revs a day.

    Your times are again in the ball park…ICBMS launched from the Korean penisula or Main land China would be observable in around 17 minutes from the radars on Kwajalien Atoll and slightly longer from a site in Russia or the Ukrains, about 24 and 27 minutes to the radar horizion.

    You will have about a three minute periord of visibilty horizon to horizon to gain radar observations wash that through the computer and spit out an OES…or orbital element set. That is using a 1950’s era radar. The new Aegis platform could do the same thing in less time then it takes to say “Oh shit its a nuke”.

    But no pressure here folks…really. :em02:

    As far as “if you even know about it in time” Trust me the minute a gnat farts on a launch pad anywhere on the globe the US knows about it. I will leave it at that.

    I sense that you do not really buy into the fact this shoot down was such a tremendous feat, and I will only say that this bird was crippled and tumbeling, IOW it did not have a stable orbit, the more something spins tumbles and is out of control in space the harder it becomes to predict where it will be in the future.

    Addittionally since it was getting ready to re-enter the atmosphere it became even more of a daunting task as the effects of gravity, atmosphere etc will all serve to alter it’s orbit drasticly in a very short periods of time. 5 - 10 minutes yes, 10 hours, you are playing the odds, a bird like that one, not tracked in 10 hours and you will be searching it’s predicted path in whats known as early / late scan. Meaning you dont know if it is going to appear or not, you set your sensor at the horizion and scan scan and scan some more. If you’re very lucky its a show. If somethings changed it’s orbital path enough , like contact with the atmosphere unexpectdly…then you are, to not put too fine of a point on it…Fucked. And then the fun really begins because every sensor we have out there is gonna be loooking for it.

He will then try to pick up were the klintoons left off and take the military back to the days after Vietnam. You remember, no pay raises, no promotions, no funding for new equipment, NO PRIDE, no nothing. Is that what we need right now? Putting aside all the negatives of a mcvain Presidency, his number one positive is his heartfelt desire to protect America and defeat its enemies. Nothing is more important than defeating the islamic plague spreading across the planet. NOTHING.

    Sooner or later they are going to get their way on this “cut and run from Iraq” bill, and Obama will be more than happy to sign it.

    And when McCain gets a call from his pal Teddy, he will sign it too. Otherwise the NYT might say something bad about him.

    Tallulah

    Nixon pulled our soldiers out of Vietnam, and had the gall to call it “peace with honor.”

    “Peace with honor” worked until the Dems in Congress defunded all aid to S. Vietnam following Nixon’s resignation. If we would have kept our aid promises to the government in Saigon, we would still have a friend in SE Asia.

    It has been throughout history, it was the crossroad to the Holy Land during the Crusades….the staging area for the Mongols when they ran nuts in that area….and a MAJOR staging area during both World Wars.

    There’s more than a Presidential election at stake in November, and with the massive Democratic turnout that they’ve seen for these primaries, don’t you think the Republicans are going to lose a few more seats in the House and Senate?
    I do.
    I don’t think the Democrats who show up to vote for Obama are then going to vote for the congressman with an “R” next to his name.

    I know that the Senate debate about Iraq today was another waste of time. But eventually, they WILL have enough votes. That’s all I’m saying.

    The Democratic/Socialist rule is coming, and it may not scare you, but it certainly is making me nervous.
    And it’s not just the Iraq issue.
    I’m having a tough enough time paying my taxes and the Democrats are PROMISING to make me pay more so that it can be given to people who don’t want to work for it. I work DAMN hard for my money, and I’d like to keep a little more of what I’ve earned.

    Instead of rattling the saber and pounding our chest, he actually aims to try and defuse the world threats.

That ability comes in mighty handy when the threat doesn’t give a flying F**K if it gets the piss beat out of it BECAUSE YOU CAN STILL DEFEND YOURSELF. If it helps, think of al queerda and the rest as a vicious dog. Said dog will terrorize the neighborhood until someone puts it down. You can’t reason with it, and joining hands and singing Kumbaya won’t change a thing. The ability to see it coming and put a bullet in its skull will.

    Most of us in this country want to LOWER the tension in the world, not keep it pumped up on high. We’ve had enough of your war orgies, your insane celebration over spilled blood. Obama offers hope, you only offer more fear.

    Peace Through Superior Firepower. Really. Having some pride in the ability to be the last one standing in a fight we didn’t start is not a “war orgy” or an “insane celebration over spilled blood” You want to see that,go back and look at the footage from Arab Street after the spilled blood on 9/11.

Guys with computers (slide-rules in earlier days) can figure out scary accurate velocities and trajectories with very little data.

    The hope you praise is a mirage, and the freightening part is that this country is unlikely to wake up to it until he’s got us completely hamstrung. I’m actually praying that he chooses Hillary as his VP. She’d likely to Vince Foster his treacherous ass, and then she’ll piss off Congress enough that she will only be able to get just enough of her socialist agenda passed to wake the country up for the next election cycle.

    And unless it’s coming from Mexico, Canada or South America (and even then, maybe) you can be sure there’s a Ticonderoga class cruiser (someone give me a cookie for not calling them “Aegis class cruisers”) with an Aegis system onboard that will be doing exactly that.

    Explanation for all you non-NAVSPEAK’ers out there, ships are named after the first of their class (Ticonderoga, Burke, Nimitz, etc), Aegis is a weapons system carried first on Ticonderoga class cruisers. The class of ship keeps it’s name even though it’s namesake (USS Ticondroga, CG-47) has been decomissioned.

    Larry, true, but remember it could be a Burke, too. :)

    And your plot doesn’t have to be exact at time of launch- the SM-3 supports midcourse correction to some extent, AND the ‘warhead’ is a development based on “brilliant pebbles”, and thus self-guided.

    ‘Bout the size of it, Cruncher,,
    When they “whisper sweet nothings..”,, that’s just what I’m hearin’, and the residual atmosphere aint far off neither. Too bad we can’t harness that energy.
    ‘Lot of it contains a hefty giggle-factor though..

    But like I say whenever I see one of them come swaggerin’ into the keylight,,gesticulating with the mic like a sacred scepter,, “When they cock thier tail,,we know what’s comin’,,”

    Hmmmmmmmmm… do I hear the distant rumble of the Second American Revolution? Load ‘em if ya got ‘em …
    Grits

    Maybe not so distant and more like Civil War v2.0. Not all states (or cities, for that matter) will want to forcibly change the government because they LIKE the Nanny State. Lessee… Hawaii comes to mind. The rectal cancer of West Coast “Blue” states would be “Red” states if you tossed out urban librul shitholes like LA, SF, Portland and Seattle. I suspect a Civil War v2.0 would pit the American backbone of producers against leeches, urban neurotics, illegals, the political elite, criminals and con men (also see “political elite) and “disenfranchised” not otherwise specified. I’m guessing the producers have the arms, willpower, organization and conviction to win… assuming Posse Comitatus is not suspended AND the bulk of the military are willing to suppress their own fellow citizens. Terrible thing to even contemplate.

    Difficult months ahead, fear I. As Hillary loses more and more delegates to B’Hack Hussein B’Jaba, the odds dramatically increase that she will use desperate measures to secure what she believes is her Gaia-given right to subjugate the American masses. Line up a armed loud-mouthed racist redneck sucker, get him in close to B’Hack, a pro does the job and the redneck takes the fall. Hillary steps up to honor the memory of newly canonized Saint B’Hack and vows to carry on his fight while demonizing the right for killing him. Rioting (an excuse for looting) in the streets, cities burning… a blend of ‘63 and ‘68. Just the kind of juicy national crisis the left, aided by the MSM, could use to consolidate power.

    Tell me that scenario doesn’t make sense.

    Major, I have been thinking exactly the same thing. BHO would be as easy for the witch to dispatch as Ron Brown or Vince Foster, and blaming it on a redneck/racist/rightwinger would perfectly insulate her from it. Once elected to office, shes uses Federal powers (ala Waco) to consolidate power and eliminate threats. Clintonesque.

    The sad part of the scenario is that the MSM WILL look the other way. They’d put more effort and money into investigating allegations of wrongdoing by a Republican Dog Catcher than expose such a monstrous crime committed by a Democrat. No Pulitzer is worth exposing a fellow Librul, after all.

    BTW #1 - McLame and B’Hack are duking it out as if it were October. Imagine how Hildebeast feels about that! More fuel to the fire, another Clinton nail in B’Hack’s coffin.

    BTW #2 - Ricin found in Las Vegas hotel. Uber-deadly biotoxin in America’s most debauched city but it could not possibly be Pisslamic terrorism! Probably just a simple murder plot. Dickheads!!!

    someone give me a cookie for not calling them “Aegis class cruisers”)

    :em04: Here’s your cookie!

    You are of course correct.. LOL, I went to looking at my post above…*whew* I din’t commit the henious crime of calling a Tico Class a Aegis Class….there is a typo up there tho Aegis platform should be “platforms” as it encompasses two separate classes of war ships, both crusiers and destroyers, (and some would argue possibly a third as if you ever spent time on a bird farm they have basically the same combat systems suite sans a phased array radar and lots of really cool SM birds…. :em93:)

    Major - What I don’t get is wasn’t it Barack “Who’s Sane?” Obama who deserted Islam, became a Christian, rejected the endorsement of one of the muzzies’ top HMFIC’s and, in fact, publicly denounced this esteemed spiritual leader and then rubbed their faces in his apostasy by cynically dressing up in one of their costumes and clowning around for a photograph? Yet, when the Queen Bitch simply calls attention to this travesty, she’s the one who gets threatened with the old coup de tete? I mean, WTF!?

  85. LC The Major, Volatile Agent Exemplar Comment by LC The Major, Volatile Agent Exemplar UNITED STATES

    Mike M, what have I said from the very beginning: You CANNOT be disrespectin’ B’Hack Hussein! If you do, you are a de facto racist. Screw the first amendment. Any disagreement with the messiah earns you that badge. Ever wonder why the muzzies have not gone nuts over ex-muzzie B’Hack, heretic denouncer of all that is Islam? Could it be those who call for infidel heads to separate from bodies are all winking at each other over a juicy secret? Maybe all of the “denouncing” is a total load of horseshit meant for the gullible sheeple to graze on.

    Did any of you guys know that Barack has a muslim brother living in Africa? Seriously..his name is Abongo Obama..check it out here…http://bobmccarty.com/tag/barack-obamas-brother/

    I googled it after I read it..and..there are definitely many sources out there saying the same thing. Apparently, Abongo (can’t help but laugh every time I type that :em95: ) is really pissed at Barack and wants him to convert back to being muslim.

    Barack and a bong, o! :em02:
