Right Wing Fantasyland E-Mail News.

video

After being lazy most of November I thought I'd catch up with the world and get out the blog. But first I checked my e-mail. I'm fortunate enough to be the recipient of most of the latest right-wing crap that's making it's way through the internet and right-wing blogosphere.

I thought I'd share with those of you that aren't lucky enough to be on the cutting edge of Conservative wit and wisdom.

The above video is some really sick racist garbage set to Johnny Horton and Jimmie Driftwood's "Battle of New Orleans". A song I really liked when I was in first grade, along with "One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple, People-Eater".

The video gives great insight into the mind-set of the other side. You know, the side with all the morals.

It's no wonder that this country is in such a financial hole. Those guys aren't worth squat with numbers. Here's a brilliant "eye-opening" piece that claims there were more military deaths under Clinton (They have such an obsession with Clinton. I often wonder if it's because they're jealous of him getting a BJ or Jealous of Monica for giving it.) than Bush. Unfortunately for them they put in a link to check the figures. I did. They're wrong. But it's all over the right-wing blogosphere.

I WONDER WHAT HILLARY'S OR ANY DEMOCRATIC SENATOR OR CONGRESSMAN'S ANSWER TO THIS WOULD BE?

These are some rather eye-opening facts:Since the start of the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan , the sacrifice has been enormous. In the time period from the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 through now, we have lost over 3000 military personnel to enemy action and accidents. As tragic as the loss of any member of the US Armed Forces is, consider the following statistics:

The annual fatalities of military members while actively serving in the armed forces from 1980 through 2006:>>1980 ......... 2,392>>1981 ......... 2,380 >>1984 .......... 1,999>>1988 .......... 1,819>>1989 .......... 1,636>>1990 ......... 1,508>>1991 .......... 1,787>>1992 .......... 1,293>>1993 .......... 1,213 >>1994 .......... 1,075>>1995 .2,465>>1996 ......... 2,318 Clinton years @14,000 deaths>>1997 .......... 817>>1998 ......... 2,252>>1999 .......... 1,984 >>2000 .......... 1,983>>2001 .......... 890>>2002 .......... 1,007>>2003 .......... 1,410>>2004 .......... 1,887>>2005 ......... 919>>2006.......... 920

If you are confused when you look at these figures...so was I.

Do these figures mean that the loss from the two latest conflicts in the Middle East are LESS than the loss of military personnel during Mr. Clinton 's presidency; when America wasn't even involved in a war? And, I was even more confused; when I read that in 1980, during the reign of President (Nobel Peace Prize) Jimmy Carter, there were 2,392 US military fatalities!

These figures indicate that many of our Media & Politicians will pick and choose. Th ey present only those "facts" which support their agenda-driven reporting. Why do so many of them march in lock-step to twist the truth. Where do so many of them get their marching-orders for their agenda?

Our Mainstream Print and TV media, and many Politicians like to slant; that these brave men and women, who are losing their lives in Iraq , are mostly minorities! Wrong AGAIN--- just one more media lie! The latest census, of Americans, shows the following distribution of American citizens, by Race:

>>European descent (White) . 69.12%>>Hispanic ................................ 12.5%>>Black..................................... 12.3%>>Asian ...................................... 3.7%>>Native American ..................... . 1.0%>>Other . 2.6%Now... here are the fatalities by Race; over the past three years in Iraqi Freedom:>>European descent (whit e) ..... 74.31%>>Hispanic . 10.74%>>Black . 9.67%>>Asian . . 1.81%>>Native American . 1.09%>>Other . ..33%

You do the Math! These figures don't lie... but, Media-liars figure...and they sway public opinion! (These statistics are published by Congressional Research Service, and they may be confirmed by anyone at: http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL32492.pdf )

Now ask yourself these two questions:"Why does the mainstream Print and TV Media never print statistics like these?" and "Why do the mainstream media hate the web as much as they do?"

Go to the link and check it out. I only did the military deaths, it's on page 10, and didn't bother too much too much with the minority percentages.

If you check the figures, under Clinton there were 7500 military deaths, not 14,000 and 8,792 under Bush. Of course this doesn't take into account the 120 suicides a week among veterans. These should be listed as combat deaths, simply because most are due to combat related experiences.

Wounded Times makes the case for this much better than I can.

As WWII was winding down, Hitler blamed the German people for losing the war. Guess who the Right's blaming? If you can get through the next one without laughing out loud, you're at the wrong blog.


We all have our disagreements with President Bush. Immigration, U.S. Attorney firings, Iraq , Darfur , etc., are all hot topics these days.

The following "speech" was written recently by an ordinary
Maineiac [a resident of the People's Republic of Maine ]. While satirical in nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. This is an excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living. It is sent with the author's permission.

The speech George W. Bush SHOULD give:

BUSH'S RESIGNATION SPEECH

Normally, I start these things out by saying "My Fellow
Americans." Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer.

I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets
all in a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office.

The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people.
I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out.

Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by
politicians and the news media. Polls show that the majority of you think the economy is in the tank. And that's despite record numbers of homeowners, including record numbers of MINORITY homeowners. And while we're mentioning minorities, I'll point out that minority business ownership is at an all-time high.. Our unemployment rate is as low as it ever was during the
Clinton administration. I've mentioned all those things before,
but it doesn't seem to have sunk in.

Despite the shock to our economy of 9/11, the stock market has
rebounded to record levels and more Americans than ever are
participating in these markets. Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and
beachfront property than your economic security.

We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this "blood for
oil" thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized
Iraq's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied; People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that the intelligence was faulty. Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named ' Clinton ' established that policy. Bet you didn't know
that, did you?

You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to outspend and out-tech them. That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to
taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They
want to kill you. And the bastards are all over the globe.

You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us
here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that.

When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a
long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.'

Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing
things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops.

Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the
enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might just as well FedEx a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing..

In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's
all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times or on NBC News.

But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you
would rather watch American Idol.

I could say more about your expectations that the government
will always be there to bail you out, even if you're too stupid to
leave a city that's below sea level and has a hurricane proaching.

I could say more about your insane belief that government, not
your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads.

So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall.

Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is
your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008.

So that's it. God bless what's left of America . Some of you know
what I mean. The rest of you, kiss off.


> > "KEEP IT GOING"

Now think about it. There are huge numbers of people who actually take crap like this as Gospel. Do you really think that we can afford to sit on our butts and not get involved in politics when there are so many, like the nut above, who are eager to turn this country over to people that will flush it down the toilet just to make a buck?

Get involved! Get informed! And please check out everything you hear or read, including Redneck Liberal. Make a difference!

Now I'm not a Hillary supporter, but garbage like this would only be condoned and circulated by the Right. They might be up to their eyebrows in morals, but they are ethically challenged in a major way.

I didn't even try to check all the outright lies on this, but I'm sure someone will and I will post it.

It's no wonder they cruise public restrooms if they're this afraid of women.

HILLARY & SLICK WILLY ~PLEASE REMEMBER THIS WHEN HILLARY RUNS FOR PRESIDENT~ REMEMBER THIS FOREVER -- It is worse than you thought and remembered and well worth reading. P.S. This was written by a Democrat. Dear Mr. Ex-President Clinton: I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Thank me, I voted for Clinton-Gore."

So, I sat down and reflected on that, and I am sending my "Thank you" for what you have done, specifically:

1. Thank you for introducing us to Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky, Dolly Kyle Browning, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broderick. Did I leave anyone out?

2. Thank you for teaching my 8-year old about oral sex. I had really planned to wait until he was a little older to discuss it with him, but now he knows more about it than I did as a senior in college.

3. Thank you for showing us that sexual harassment in the work place (especially the White House) and on the job is okay, and all you have to know is what the meaning of "it" is. It really is great to know that certain sexual acts are not sex, and one person may have sex while the other one does NOT have sex.

4. Thank you for re-introducing the concept of impeachment to a new generation and demonstrating that the ridiculous plot of the movie "Wag the Dog" could be plausible after all.

5. Thanks for making Jimmy Carter look competent, Gerald Ford look graceful, Richard Nixon look honest, Lyndon Johnson look truthful, and John Kennedy look moral.

6. Thank you for the 73 House and Senate witnesses who have plead the 5th Amendment and 17 witnesses who have fled the country to avoid testifying about Democratic campaign fund raising.

7. Thank you, for the 19 charges, 8 convictions, and 4 imprisonment's from the Whitewater "mess" and the 55 criminal charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clinton" scandals.

8. Thanks also for reducing our military by half, "gutting" much of our foreign policy, and flying all over the world on "vacations" carefully disguised as necessary trips.

9 Thank you, also, for "finding" millions of dollars (I really didn't need it in the first place, and I can't think of a more deserving group of recipients for my hard-earned tax dollars) for all of your globe-trotting. I understand you, the family and your cronies have logged in more time aboard Air Force One than any other administration.

10. Now that you've left the White House, thanks for the 140 pardons of convicted felons and indicted felons-in-exile. We will love to have them rejoin society. (Not to mention the scores you pardoned while Governor of Arkansas)

11. Thanks also for removing the White House silverware. I'm sure that Laura Bush didn't like the pattern anyway. Also, enjoy the housewarming gifts you've received from your "friends."

12. Thanks to you and your staff in the West Wing of the White House for vandalizing and destroying government property on the way out. I also appreciate removing all of that excess weight (China, silverware, linen, towels, ash trays, soap, pens, magnetic compass, flight manuals, etc.) out of Air Force 1. The weight savings means burning less fuel, thus less tax dollars spent on jet fuel. Thank you!

13. Please ensure that Hillary enjoys the $8 million dollar advance for her "tell-all" book and you, Bill, the $10 million advance for your memoirs. Who says crime doesn't pay!

14. The last and most important point - thank you for forcing Israel to let Mohammed Atta go free. Terrorist pilot Mohammed Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called "political prisoners." However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands. The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, "insisted" that all prisoners be released. Thus, Mohammed Atta was freed and eventually thanked the U.S. by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center. This was reported by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified. It was censored in the U.S. from all later reports. Why shouldn't Americans know the real truth?

What a guy!!

If you agree that the American public must be made aware of these facts, please pass this on.

THANK YOU (once again) for spending my taxes so wisely and frugally.

SINCERELY, A U.S. Citizen

PS. Please pass along a special thank you to Al Gore for "inventing" the Internet, without which I would not be able to send this wonderful, factual e-mail.

AND THE REST OF THE STORY: Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator, now comes under the "Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan," which means that even if she never gets reelected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies. (Would it not be nice if all Americans were pension eligible after only 4 years?) If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If Hillary outlives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies. Guess who pays for that? WE DO! It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency, they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale Chappaqua, New York. Makes sense. They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense. Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments hover at around $10,000 per month. BUT, an extra residence HAD to be built within the acreage to house the Secret Service agents. The Clinton's charge the Federal government $10,000 monthly rent for the use of that extra residence, which is just about equal to their mortgage payment. This means that we, the taxpayers, are paying the Clinton's salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security, as well as the salaries for their 12 man staff -- and, this is all perfectly legal! When she runs for President, will you vote for her? How many people can YOU send this to? WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

I've noticed that they'll try to cram as many untruths and half-truths into something as they can. It makes it very time consuming to research it all. Most of the crap in this one is pretty obvious, if you've been paying attention.

I'll guarantee you a good percentage of the American people now believe that all the above is actual American history.

I'll try to check out all the claims in that last one later on in the week.

For something completely different, check out Geography Zone. Take the challenge and make points for your country and state. I thought I was pretty sophisticated, for a semi-educated country boy, but I was amazed at number of countries I'd never heard of.

Since it looks like Al Gore's not getting into this goat-roping, I'll gladly start backing Dennis Kucinich. Unfortunately I'm a great backer of lost causes. Nonetheless, I'll do whatever I can for Dennis. Except send him money, the oil companies get that.

Have a good weekend.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
