The Republican’s Dilemma

by Chuck on March 18, 2012 · 0 comments

Well, who’d a thunk it?  Here we are, about 5 months from the Tampa convention, and we still don’t have a candidate.  As I’ve stated in the past, I really like Gingrich if he can get past his ancient baggage.  Well, Romney’s Super PAC made sure that wasn’t going to happen, so Newt might be done… especially after winning neither Alabama or Mississippi.  Ron Paul?  Puhleeze.  As much as I like some libertarian views, this guy is so far out in left field, you can’t see him.  He should just go back to the House and vote NO on everything.  Apparently, his TX constituents like that, because they have been reelecting him for years.

That leaves us with Romney and Santorum.  Ya know, at one time I considered Santorum a semi-viable candidate… until he started playing the ultra Right Wing candidate from Hell.  What he is, is the mirror image of Obama.  First he was gonna repeal ObamaCare.  In and of itself, a good idea.  Then he started talking about working to get Roe v. Wade repealed.  Not a smart move for a candidate that wants to appeal to most women.  Now, he’s on the “Santorum To Stomp Out Porn” campaign.

Let’s talk seriously:  I am not pro-abortion… especially as a form of birth control.  However, I am in favor of it being the woman’s call.  The decision to have in abortion is between her, her physician and her God… not necessarily in that order.  It’s nobody else’s business.  Not yours, not mine, and most certainly not the Government’s.  Santorum would do well to get off the Roe v. Wade kick.

Moving on to his views on pornography:  If elected, Rick Santorum has promised to crack down on the distribution of explicit porn.  Well, isn’t that just great!  Let’s ignore the economy, the Fed’s monetary policy, unemployment, Congress’ ineptitude and go after an industry that actually employs people and really doesn’t hurt anybody.  As president, Santorum says he would instruct his attorney general to prosecute those who distribute content his administration deems “obscene.”  Santorum, however, has yet to provide a specific definition of what kind of pornography his attorney general would prosecute.

Look, I’m not a porn junkie, and I don’t care if you are.  Watch all the porn you want… just keep it away from kids.  What Santorum is proposing is just another form of Big Government… Government intruding on your life and telling you how you should live it… just like Obama.

All of a sudden, our choice of a suitable President is looking more clear.  Put another way, perhaps our choices of who is NOT a suitable candidate is becoming more clear.  Senator, if you want me to even consider voting for you, you need to BACK OFF some of the social issues, and focus on what’s really important:  The Debt, the economy and the balance of trade, to name a few.  Stop pandering to your ultra right wing base (sound familiar?), and get back to the issues that affect all of us… or you’ll not only NOT get my vote in CA’s June primary… you might not get it in November if you’re the Republican candidate.  I don’t want Obama out bad enough to vote for a potential Facist replacement.

More Left Wing BS from the Obamanation

by Chuck on February 28, 2012 · 0 comments

Our less-than-illustrious Prezident Obama managed to do a little stumping on this election day during a visit to Michigan by telling voters there that Republican candidate Mitt Romney was shoveling a “load of you-know-what” in his 2008 NY Time op-ed criticizing the auto industry bailouts..

If you all remember, a UAW-owned trust was given a 17.5% ownership stake in GM as part of the bailout, while bondholders were left with nothing to show for their investment in the auto giant.

Prezident Obama went on to reject assertions that he was (and still is) pandering to special interests in his support of labor unions.

I have news for you, Mr. Prezident:  If it can contribute to a political candidate’s campaign, but it cannot cast a vote, IT IS A SPECIAL INTEREST!

I urge you all to help put this socialist oath-breaking criminal back on the street this November.  It doesn’t matter who the Republicans put on the ballot.  Any of the Republican candidates would be better than 4 more years of this guy.

Another Brick In The Wall

by Chuck on October 11, 2011 · 1 comment

Well, he’s gone and done it.  Our hippie governor, Jerry Brown… you know, he of the “I have 3 guns and 1 dog” statement to to a roomful of cops, has just signed a bill into law (California AB 144) that makes it illegal “to carry an exposed and unloaded handgun in public or in a vehicle”.  Violators face up to a year in prison or a potential fine of $1,000 when the law takes effect on January 1, 2012.

OnStar Owners & Users Beware

by Chuck on September 22, 2011 · 1 comment

I was watching the news this afternoon, where it was revealed that OnStar Corporation continues to gather data from any vehicle in which it has been installed, even though the vehicle’s owner has discontinued their subscription to the service.

OnStar provides subscription-based communications, in-vehicle security, hands free calling, turn-by-turn navigation, and remote diagnostics systems throughout the United States, Canada and China.  A similar service is known as ChevyStar in Latin American markets.  The service currently has more than five million customers.  OnStar Corporation is a subsidiary of General Motors, which is owned 27% by the U.S. government and 12% by the Canadian government.

Apparently, even though your subscription may expire, or you discontinue the service, you must Opt-Out of any data collection as a separate action.  As OnStar is partially owned by two governments (see above), this looks like a Big Brother scenario waiting to happen.

My advice?  If you value your privacy, don’t just Opt-Out of OnStar’s data collection if/when you discontinue service.  Take your car to the nearest dealer, and have the OnStar system completely disconnected from any power source and its antenna.

Just my 2¢.

Had Enough Yet?

by Chuck on September 22, 2011 · 0 comments

I was reading the news today about how the House rejected a measure which would provide up to $3.7 billion in disaster relief as part of a bill to prevent a government shutdown at the end of next week.  According to the AP:

“The surprise 230-195 defeat came at the hands of Democrats and tea party Republicans.

Democrats were opposed because the measure contains $1.5 billion in cuts to a government loan program to help car companies build fuel-efficient vehicles. For their part, many GOP conservatives felt the underlying bill permits spending at too high a rate. [click to continue…]
