...friends it is time for you to do something very important... GET A GRIP ON REALITY!!!" (http://blurt-online.com/blogs/author/39)
Justin goes on to talk about some points that the next president will be able to do in the next 4 years, things such as increasing or ceasing the war in Iraq and appointing as many as three Supreme Court Justices. This is coming from a punk rocker who supported third party candidates in 2000 and 2004 and is now realizing the harsh reality of voting and it's impact on not just America but also the world.
This is the reality that we live... (more)
Why is it perfectly acceptable for people wishing to protest the Iraq war to act like a bunch of two-year-olds? According to several reports anti-war protesters marched through the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota en route to the Xcel Center site of the Republican National Convention. Had they been carrying signs and marching peacefully, that would have been the end of the story.
But it isn’t.
Of the estimated 8,000 – 10,000 protesters many were seen and subsequently arrested for various acts of vandalism including smashing windows, puncturing tires and throwing bottles... (more)
The recent gains made by democrats in Congress were not a validation of Democratic platforms or policies, but a rejection of current Republican missteps. When both houses of Congress swung to the left they struggled to organize an agenda or work on the big issues such as Iraq and the economy and nothing got done. The current houses of Congress received a dubious 11% positive approval rating last month.
The next couple of political cycles will be the Democrats to lose. Why? Not because they have improved their platform but because the Republican leadership... (more)
In northern Iraq a 17 year old girl got hers. In love for the first time, she made the same mistake nearly all girls do….she liked a boy her Dad didn’t. A few calls were made and uncles joined her brothers and Dad as they dragged her outside. It took thirty minutes for eight or nine men, in front of a crowd,to throw enough stones at her head before she died.
Killing a person has not always been easy. Killing a LOT of people can be downright hard to do.

...wars, we are also at an economic downturn, and yet we have to be the peacekeepers, not that we are much of ones ourselves.
John McCain said this week, and I am recalling from memory, that one country should never take force over another country. WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE DOING IN IRAQ? The hypocrisy seems to pain me, if I were McCain, and if I were Obama, I would never even touch this issue unless it was asked. Becoming the next President of the United States with a target on your head from Russia, is not a great thing.
I seemingly don’t understand how... (more)
...in the abstract, about the big picture. He resists being pinned down on facts and when confronted he leaves open enough wiggle room to change course. Of course once committed to a core principle a corner stone of his presidency he will not relinquish, as is the case with the successful surge in Iraq. Repeatedly Obama was asked about the current conditions in Iraq, and each time Obama parceled his words carefully, refusing to acknowledge what the world already knew…that the surge was indeed a success, and President Bush’s policy had finally paid off.
Astoundingly, the... (more)
...are a Fascist or someting similar, you'd probably think so. So who is this candidate, you might ask. He is Mike Gravel, a 78-year-old Democrat and former Alaskan Senator. He was running during primary season for the Democrats but received almost no attention. Gravel is strongly opposed to the Iraq War and feels it is turning into Vietnam, which he was also strongly opposed to. However, during the early Democratic debates, few questions were asked of him, and even the ones that were asked of him, he was basically given significantly less time than other candidates to answer. When asked in... (more)
...the meantime, we hope he enjoys his paranoid view from the bottom of the ratings ladder and wish him well on his inevitable trip to oblivion.” When Christiane Amanpour said CNN and Fox were intimidated by the Bush administration and practiced self-censorship in the run-up to the Iraq war, Briganti responded, “Given the choice, it’s better to be viewed as a foot soldier for Bush than a spokeswoman for al-Qaeda.”
I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a while. Those are so good, that frankly, someone have them bronzed and placed in the... (more)
...but the reality is: one down, one to go. Originally she said she wasn’t walking away claiming that she couldn’t stop her campaign machine “on a dime.” But this is the same person who thinks that by 6:00 p.m. EST on January 20, 2009, all of our troops can be on their way home from Iraq.
So in deciding that she wants to back off, she thinks that she deserves to be Obama’s running mate. “I want the 18 million people who voted for me to be respected and heard,” she told supporters who attended a rally last night after the serious whoopin’ she got in Montana. This... (more)
...and without ability to help them. The terrorists will pick off the other non-Muslim nations, one at a time. It is becoming increasingly easier for them to do so.
They already hold Spain hostage. It doesn't matter whether it was right or wrong for Spain to withdraw its troops from Iraq. Spain did it because the Muslim terrorists bombed their train stations and told them to withdraw their troops. Anything else they want Spain to do, will be done. Spain is finished.
The British are just now beginning to realize that they have home-grown Muslim terrorists within their... (more)
