On the Hot Seat with Freedom Now

I have to apologize for the delay but long term readers know I deplore the abuse of children. We have an off again on again spots on child abuse . It is rare that a poster would cause me to lose my temper. However when a poster writes " Children belong to Allah" that does raise my ire.

Bravely venturing into the Hot seat is Freedom Now. Some of you do not read that blog but a link is on the right.

Children

1 Has the problem of Child abuse gotten worse ? Was it there the whole time and we just swept it under the rug ?
2 Does the statement that "Children belong to Allah" indicate a devaluation of human life under Islam ?
3 Should the role of parent be held in higher esteem ?

Immigration
4 Are you prepared to toss the book at companies that hire illegal workers
5 What responsabilities do immigrants have to America

Random
6 Italian or Japanese food ?
7 Phil Collins or AC DC

Energy Policy
8 Should we drill in ANWR ?
9 Sould we build more Nuclear Plants and Refineries
10 Is part of the war on terror reducing the price of Oil ? Can we whip the Saudis by finding alternate energy resources.

Europe
11 Is Ameicas future tied more to India and China or France and Germany
12 Is the spate of riots in France a symbol of the failures of socialism ?
13 Is much of Anti Americanism rooted in anti Capitalism
14 Were the peace protesters aping European anti Americanism or visa vera

General
15 Do you have a particular artist you are fond of ?
16 Who is your favorite talking head ?

Multiculturalism

17 Is the multicutural airbrushing of history a problem
18 Is everybody a victim in multiculturalism. Are nursing generational grievances healthy for societies.

Liberals
19 Where are the Scoop Jackson liberals ?
20 Is there a condescending elitism that eminates from the liberal elite ?

Random
23 What sports do you watch

#26 - have you forgiven devo for pirating that song YOU wrote?

Calm yourself Nanc, my answers may disturb you...

1 Has the problem of Child abuse gotten worse ? Was it there the whole time and we just swept it under the rug ?

Parent abuse is now the problem as parents are afraid to discipline their children and their kids become creatures more hideous than your average Socialist. In any case, even adults need discipline or at least a decent spanking. How can anyone get through the day without a little rough play?

Seriously, yes it was swept under the rug for a long time. However, things have moved a bit too far in the PC direction, but I guess that’s what you get when you give up your kids to the Socialist Gestapo. Sweden is great about telling you how to raise your children and if you don’t like it, they will steal your kid away from you on the slightest pretext.

2 Does the statement that "Children belong to Allah" indicate a devaluation of human life under Islam ?

I’d have to ask what rights do children have under Allah. Are they free to change religions without the threat of the death penalty?

3 Should the role of parent be held in higher esteem?

If most parents went through what mine did, then they should be exempt from taxes and elevated to Demi-Gods.

Immigration
4 Are you prepared to toss the book at companies that hire illegal workers.

I am afraid of the consequences that it could do to our economy, but yes. It’s not worth having the law on the books unless it is enforced.

5 What responsibilities do immigrants have to America.

The same as American citizens. I believe in responsibility to humanity over the state.

Random
6 Italian or Japanese food ?

Italian because Sushi makes me ill, literally.

7 Phil Collins or AC DC

Are you kidding? Phil Collins has the balls of a hamster. I understand from a reliable source that AC/DC have very big balls.

Energy Policy
8 Should we drill in ANWR ?

I’m all for drilling ANWR or Halle Berry or anything American.

9 Should we build more Nuclear Plants and Refineries.

I don’t like nuclear power because of the danger to the environment that nuclear waste presents, but I’m all for more refineries. Ethanol or alternative sources of energy are our best long-term bets.

10 Is part of the war on terror reducing the price of Oil ?

I don’t see any connection to the War on Terror and Oil. Afghanistan has no major oil reserves and the Iraqis own their own damn oil. Only Socialists and Islamists profit from the War for Oil.

Can we whip the Saudis by finding alternate energy resources?

I would love to whip bin Laden’s niece, she is hot.

Europe
11 Is America’s future tied more to India and China or France and Germany?

It’s a small world and it’s getting smaller. All of these countries have strong anti-American sentiment. Things look the best with Germany right now because they have a friendly administration, but things change quickly. If it wasn’t for militant Hinduism we would naturally have the strongest relationship with India. However, they have a problem with bigotry that is inspired by the reaction to the Muslim threat in their country, the memory of British imperialism and a legacy of Socialist activism.

12 Is the spate of riots in France a symbol of the failures of Socialism ?

Actually, Chirac’s administration is a bit right wing, but very anti-Anglo American. However, yes their country is crippled by years of socialism. These riots can either lead to a downward spiral or they can actually stimulate much needed reform. Of course, the 2nd of the two riots is in response to that reform so things aren’t looking to good.

13 Is much of Anti Americanism rooted in anti Capitalism

Sure, the anti-globalization protests and riots proves that. Socialists are still fighting the Cold War. Because the US is a threat to any fascist dictatorship or revolutionary group there will always be anti-Americanism. Don’t forget anti-Semitism too.

14 Were the peace protesters aping European anti Americanism or visa vera

It’s a global movement that has been active since the 60s. The only difference is that they are no longer taking orders from Moscow...and you know why.

General
15 Do you have a particular artist you are fond of ?

Salvador Dali, the surrealist artist who was able to prove that artists can be talented and still work exclusively in the modern arts.

16 Who is your favorite talking head?

I’m not a big fan, but I like their hits. It would have to be David Byrne because he is the only one I am familiar with. Since I am not a Talking Heads fan can I pick John Doe of X instead? ...Work with me, here…

Multiculturalism

17 Is the multicultural airbrushing of history a problem?

When someone colors history to fit their political views then I label that person as a fascist. Leftwinger or Rightwinger. It’s disgusting.

18 Is everybody a victim in multiculturalism. Are nursing generational grievances healthy for societies.

Multiculturalism gives us many legitimate contributions. However, many use multiculturalism to advance their political agenda.

Liberals
19 Where are the Scoop Jackson liberals?

Joe Lieberman is the only one left.

20 Is there a condescending elitism that emanates from the liberal elite?

Are you kidding? According to our elites you don’t have the balls to withdraw from Iraq and fight terrorism in Antarctica. You and the Bush Chimp Boy don’t have the slightest idea of what’s really going on…

Libertarianism
21 Do Libertarians scare Marxists more then Republicans

Everyone loves Libertarians because they think they can sway them to their cause. It’s the benefits of not making up your mind about which side you are on.

22 Do some people really need a saftey net?

Many circus performers use them and I think they should be tested for use by the general public.

Random
23 What sports do you watch.

None, professional sports is like a fantasy land.

24 Can you tell the difference between a Yam and a sweet potato without looking at signs?

I am good with Stop signs and Pedestrian Crossing signs so I am reluctant to give them up but I think I got a handle on it. Yams taste like sh*t and sweet potatoes are great with marshmallows.

25 Do people who send their pets to psychiatrists need special help?

Pets are people too, end the discrimination…

........Beak we gotta talk offline. Am I getting paid for this interview? You see I got some gambling debts and if I can get a good score from this I can pay them off and then I will never gamble again.

Scouts honor...

beakerkin said...

I am cracking up at 22 as I did not see that one . I can predict where comedic responses might happen but that was interesting.

F.B. Jones said...

I agree will beaker. I like peanuts a lot. so the circus is always fun. Maybe I should take a spin in the hot seat. Maybe

i beg to differ, our hamster "milo" has some pretty large boys!

nanc said...

other than that - a smashing interview - imagine a standing ovation and much handclapping!!! bravo, fern.

nanc said...

o.t. - madze has a funny new article up. wish we could lure him over for an interview...

Freedomnow said...

I never heard the song about your hamster so I am in the dark here. You have very eclectic taste in music Nanc.

I think Beak is going to rip me off on my royalties, can you talk to him because I really need the dough...

Freedomnow said...

MZ is next...

Mad Zionist said...

You rang?

beakerkin said...

I will prepare a special set of questions for you MZ. We agree on about 75% of issues.

You can expect around five to six popular culture questions.

nanc said...

come on fern - at least beak didn't capitalize on one of your songs like devo did.

you do not knead the dough - somebody else does it for you! i cannot imagine you in the kitchen making your own bread...you must take another avenue to get down this street.

Freedomnow said...

Are we just monkeys that we should jump up and down on Beak’s command? This is like a bloggers circus and Beak is the pimp ringmaster.

You got ALWAYS ON WATCH jumping through flaming hoops as she admits that she once liked Neil Diamond but insists that it was just a phase.

MR. BEAMISH played the strong man by making boasts that he windsurfs and loves humvees in order to hide the fact that he is a sissy who never went to a rodeo.

NANC would be the bearded lady, but she would kill me if I said that so I didn’t.

and DUCKY was the swashbuckling lion tamer who cowed those dirty imperialists into submission with his encyclopedic knowledge of film.

What a freak show!!!!!!!!!!!

beakerkin said...

Freedom Now

The range of our posts are somewhat limited. Three quarters of us discuss the same or similar subjects from the same perspective.

Most of us know Ducky's views on the war on Terror. However the whole segment was more interesting.
The questions on art and film were interesting.

The interviews were fair and based upon fun . The interview of Rob gave a chance for regular folks to
get a more balanced view of him.

The interview of the Mad Zionist is extreemly interesting and I had to read it about twice.

F.B. Jones said...

bock is my wifes nickname. Bring it on.

nanc said...

calm down, fern - people are watching...what have you done with my aftershave gel?

Mr. Ducky said...

Hmmm....American Patriot wants the brakes kept on nuclear power but Ducky (the Green) is in favor of limited expansion of nuclear power.

Hard to pigeon hole people, isn't it?

Mr. Ducky said...

Ooops, this was Freedom Now's interview. Even stranger.

nanc said...

plucky - you take that back!

Freedomnow said...

Ducky,

I am not defined by a political party. My allegiance is to humanity, not the Republican party or conservative ideals.

Freedomnow said...

Beak,

This is an outrage! I specifically asked that there be M&Ms and Champagne in the dressing room.

Anyways, careful with Jacob I think he wants to fight you over a woman...

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

FreedomNow,

Rodeos are boring. Bullfighting is more exciting.

Maybe a combination of the two would be nice. The matador begins on the back of the bull and once he's thrown off he must find spears and swords to kill the bull before he is gored to death by it.

Put it in a octogonal cyclone fence for some mixed martial arts fun.

beakerkin said...

I like Beamish combination of Bullfight rodeo. However anyone who dresses in those absurd outfits bull fighters wear should be gored. If you are not in comic books or sucking blood loose the cape.

Bull fighters may even wear tackier outfits then golfers.

Some of you think I like bull fighting because I want to cook the looooooser. Lets see matador ribs goes with what type of wine ????

Freedomnow said...

I think they should just let the bulls run at Spanish Socialist conventions.

They are good at appeasing Al Qaeda, so why not let them appease the bulls?...

nanc said...

beak - that would be a dry red wine, room temperature.

fern - i'm here to escort you to the witless protection program now - are ya gonna come quietly or does i have ta muss ya up?

Freedomnow said...

You can't protect witless people from me, but if I have a choice I'll take the Mussed-Up method...
