The Beak is home

I made it back home with minor misadventures. 400 plus miles and only minor misadventues. The trip was fun until I got past Albany and Upstate radio stinks.
NPR and country music stink.

Only a conservative could justify having cut national invest towards emergency preparedness whilst announcing an outward looking war in Iraq. Only a conservative could spend millions abroad in an illicit war.

We DO need to balance the budget... We DO need to blast people who may or may not be terrorists to smithereens at the expeniture of disaster readiness.

As is typical of modern rightists, a global polemic has taken precedence over common sense administration. It is correct to state that, while Republicans may be thrifty, and on occasion, correctly, that these people are incapable of managing municipal works of any kind. There have been accusations tossed about, regarding the 'left' whatever that might be (in the masturbatory fantasies of this blog's audience: homosexual, vegetarian, hippy mumia-kissin'-che-shirt-wearin,' ZOG citin' fags) that 'we' like to throw money at problems in lieu of concise decision making.

The past fifty hours or so should learn us all a little. While it might be the case that Clinton would not have prevented this unfortunate situation, he certainly did invest in preparedness (a term unfamiliar to you right minded, capital swinging folks). 'Preparedness' is the capacity for a municipal infrastructure to, not sustain, but effectuvely recover from disasters, natural or otherwise.

Dubya and his pasty butt-buddies like to CUT funding from such services, presumably to redirect monies to protect our borders -- although I do note, one such 'border' -- a levee in south louisiana did, in fact, crumble to pieces . . . and metaphors we are increasingly capable of transcending, at least if 'we' work for the Bush administartion.

It shall remain a fact that Bush dramatically cut funding to disaster readiness, and to fire services as well as police services, and forthward extended the National Guard to resposibilities not prescribed to its intent. all this, of course, post 9/11.

What we are seeing is none other than an illustration of the complete and utter failure of modern conservativism, as warped as it is by polemical ideology.

We should pray for better days, and most actively, for a solvent and competant leader.

drew,

Get a life buddy. Where do you think all those billions for "Homeland Security" are going? It isn't going to the librarians to look up your book reading habits. It's going to police and fire departments nation-wide...the "first responders".

FJ,
Agreeing that Drew needs to get a life, you might not be aware that he is our "official troll". His sterling wit shows through his thin veneer of leftism.... Well, we hope it does.

Once again, Drew shows the ignorance of the left in an artistic trollish manner. Even going so far as to provide us with a literary metaphor and example of the, "echo chamber", of leftist "opinion" through his double post.

Thanks for the double post, Drew, we couldn't ask for more from our official troll.

LOL

Drew

Your description curiously sounds like the infamous 167.

The fact that it is unrelated to the post is merely trivial.

Now you’ve gone to far, beak: Country Music sucks? We hereby sentence you to 40 hours of viewing Urban Cowboy for sensitivity training. Wait, hold on, … I’ve just been informed that do to the overwhelming number of white guys in Country Music, it is permissible to spout venom towards the genre.

Seriously, I have nothing against Country Music – it’s pleasant although I’m no aficionado. I think if you grow up in a Red State or spend time in the military you develop a taste for the genre. Old New Yorkers like us might be handicapped in this regard.

drew,

A simple question for you bud. If modern conservatism represents a "polemical ideology", doesn't that necessarily imply that there is an "another" end to that "pole"?

And if so, what does THAT say about "modern progresivism"? Just curious what you see when YOU look in the mirror.

He is an odd troll....sorta like the guy who stands in the middle of the street babbling very loudly to himself.

Warren said...

Geez
Jason, what kind of a inhuman #$%$ are you?

40 hours of viewing Urban Cowboy? I'd rather be a black Jew wearing a priests collar and carrying a "death to honkies" sign at a KKK rally!

LOL. At least someone got my joke, Warren!
