Conservative Bastion
The only blog that can factually claim to shift the Bell Curve, along with the hearts & minds of America, to the right.

Random Thoughts
This is old, but it is nice to remember important stories like this one.
While the editorial page of The Wall Street Journal is conservative, the newspaper's news pages are liberal, even more liberal than The New York Times. The Drudge Report may have a right-wing reputation, but it leans left. Coverage by public television and radio is conservative compared to the rest of the mainstream media. Meanwhile, almost all major media outlets tilt to the left.
I guess my two main sources of news are liberal leaning.

Enlightenment from a Muslim babe...

The first Muslim to be crowned Miss England has warned that stereotyping members of her community is leading some towards extremism.

Even moderate Muslims are turning to terrorism to prove themselves. They think they might as well support it because they are stereotyped anyway.

This is something I have noticed over the last couple of months. When the pro-illegal immigration crowd called conservatives racist for simply wanting the laws of our country to be enforced, it made me very angry. That experience helps me understand how being called or labeled a terrorist would make Muslims angry. The difference is that many Muslim youth decide to go on suicide missions, and I take my anger out on my blog.

Those French are so enlightened!

France's jobless rate fell below 9 percent for the first time in four years in July, according to data on Wednesday which should cheer Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin who made cutting unemployment his priority.

The unemployment rate of the euro zone's second biggest economy fell to 8.9 percent from 9.0 percent in June, down more than one percentage point in little more than a year.

The decline, which was in line with consensus forecasts, is the latest in a series of economic reports which show the French economy is firing on all cylinders and that job creation is starting to pick up.

I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL BUSH IS OUT OF OFFICE SO OUR ECONOMY CAN START "FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS" TOO!

Uh oh...Bush is blurring the lines between church and state again!!!

We believe that freedom is a gift from an almighty God, beyond any power on Earth to take away.

Dear God....will Bush stop at nothing to impose his religious will on the rest of the country.

This is from the Boston Herald:

Despite exploding costs, most Americans got sizable life-extending bang for their medical bucks over recent decades, says one of the most sweeping studies ever of health-care value.
That might come as a surprise to anyone who has ever shuddered over a medical bill, and the report itself raises doubts over how quickly costs have escalated over the years.
However, the federally funded study calculated that Americans of all ages spent an average of $19,900 on medical care for each extra year of life expectancy gained over the last four decades of the 20th century. And that cost is worth it, the study authors say.

Liberal tolerance at its best...

The Pierce County Sheriff's Department is searching for five people who allegedly attacked a uniformed National Guardsmen walking along 138th Street in Parkland Tuesday afternoon.

The soldier was walking to a convenience store when a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and the driver asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

The driver then got out of the vehicle, displayed a gun and shouted insults at the victim. Four other suspects exited the vehicle and knocked the soldier down, punching and kicking him.

“And during the assault the suspects called him a baby killer. At that point they got into the car and drove off and left him on the side of the road,” Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

Don't trust what you read in the Boston Herald... it's the biggest POS newspaper up here.

I don't normally read it, but every once in a while there is something good in there. I think they were the paper that reported that Bush's grades were higher than Kerry's.

Oh, one more thing I found unbelievably funny... This other guy has a picture of Lincoln on his "My Conservative Mind" blog, LMAO... It's funny in that Lincoln was a liberal! The Republicans of then are hardly the same as today. Read his writings, read biographies, etc... He was a liberal. The Conservative movement was started by, mainly, Edmund Burke. He began Bristish Conservatism, which then John C. Calhoun introduced into American politics in the 1830's; Calhoun was a Dixicrat. Thomas Jefferson, who started the Democratic party, was very liberal. Lincoln said in his Gettysburg Address that he was the second Thomas Jefferson. Democrats started to become what we might call Dixicrats today. One infamous Dixicrat, Strom Thrumond, I'm sure rings a bell. Did you know he switched parties? He became a Republican. Hence the drastic change in political parties; back in those days Republicans were the liberals, the Dixicrats and Whigs were the conservatives. The Whigs put newspaper editors in jail for writing/publishing anything the they didn't like. The Democratic party, when Jefferson started it, was the same as it is today, basically liberal. That all changed drastically. Now, if you look it up you may find that Andrew Jackson started the Democratic party... Not true, Jefferson did. It was called the Democrat-Republican party when Jefferson founded it. The jackass symbol of the Democratic party was implemented by Jackson. The Whigs called him a jackass; you see the irony... Anyway, the Whig party was so marginalized that it eventually broke up and memebers joined different parties. Some joined the Republican party and some even joined the Democrat Party... Many people accused the Whig party of being the same as the Federalist party which had previously broken up... Either way, go read your history... Lincoln was a liberal. Both parties were infilitrated by the conservative whigs... Down south it was the Democrats that were affected greatly, but that all changed once FDR and JFK came along... The Southern Dems switchted parties, like Strom Thurmond... The Democrats changed for the better and the Republicans changed for the worse... Besides... Comparing Edmund Burke conservatism is stupid anyway. Reagan founded modern day conservatism. Thank him and the rest of the Republicans for starting class-warfare...

Thom Hartman has a book out called "Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle-Class"; it explains all you need to know about your lovely conservatism.

So, before you defame the name and picture of a great American president, learn more about him. By today's standards Lincoln would be a Democrat.

You're statements that Jefferson and Lincoln were both libs are debatable. Jefferson was liberal for his time...really only meaning that he was for something new. The change that he wanted was less government. If Jefferson were alive today, he would be a Republican before he would be Democrat. He would really be a Libertarian, but most Libertarians vote Republican.

Do you know the reason?

It's because despite Republican talk of moral values, they don't really force large amounts of values on others. Sure they mention God in a speech here or there. Sure they go to church and are against prostitution, but you don't see a huge "moral values state" like you see a welfare state. The welfare state is huge and evasive. Republicans are not perfect, but Libertarians understand that if we are going to be for minimalist government, the Liberals in this country are the ones that stand the most in our way.

As for Lincoln being a liberal. Again, that is debatable. Sure, for his time, he was against slavery (actually against the expansion of slavery), but does that make him a liberal? Not by today's standards. BTW, talk about a presidential abuse of power. Again, I am not ragging on Lincoln, but if Bush deserves to be impeached because of his actions, then Lincoln should have been as well.

One more thing...i think it is funny that you commented on "another young conservative."

Because of abortion and birth control, the only way liberals can ever retain any power in this country is through the mass immigration of poor people. Seriously, it should not be a surprise that the new generation is more conservative than the baby boomers. the illegals will save the Democrats, and that is my main reason for opposing their immigration to this country. the last thing we need is more socialists.

No. No, they are not debatable, at all.

Jefferson was liberal for his time...really only meaning that he was for something new.

Why do you persist on arguging this with me? I've studied this relentlessly.Library of Congress Web site: Thomas Jefferson Papers"

Read those papers, THEN, you will know that Jefferson would be a Democrat, no question about it. None whatsoever. Anybody who says that he would be a Republican is ignorant of who he was and what he was about. I've provided a reliable web site that has every thing he ever wrote, publicly.

the Liberals in this country are the ones that stand the most in our way.

Your arguments get dumber and dumber... How many new departments and agencies has Bush and the Republicans set up? Give me a break... You say they want less government! RIGHT!

It's because despite Republican talk of moral values, they don't really force large amounts of values on others

How can you support something and call yourself a member of something when you don't know anything about it? The Republicans push morals on people more and more each day... Anti-Abortion, Anti-Gay Marriage, Anti-This, Anti-That...

Sure they go to church and are against prostitution

Against prostitution you say?

but you don't see a huge "moral values state" like you see a welfare state.

That's bull shit and you know it.

Republicans are not perfect, but Libertarians understand that if we are going to be for minimalist government, the Liberals in this country are the ones that stand the most in our way.

First of all... Bill Maher is a libertarian and he HATES Republicans! A true libertarian does... You need to go read some books, go to the libertarian web site and read what they are about.

As for Lincoln being a liberal. Again, that is debatable.

No. No, it isn't.

but if Bush deserves to be impeached because of his actions, then Lincoln should have been as well.

ROTFFLMFAO... You get sillier and sillier with each keystroke... Lol. Enlighten me, please. What did Lincoln do?

Because of abortion and birth control, the only way liberals can ever retain any power in this country is through the mass immigration of poor people.

HAHAHAHA... Oh man. Stop dude, you're killing me here... Lol... Who won the popular vote in 2000? Who was president eight years before? Lol. The majority of this country are Democrats. The Republicans won in 2004 because of one of two reasons: stolen election or fear mongering... I don't know which. I do know that exit polls showed Kerry as the winner.

it should not be a surprise that the new generation is more conservative than the baby boomers

The new generation is not more conservative; there's just a few freaks here and there.

the illegals will save the Democrats,

Oh, shut up. You wouldn't even bring that stupid argument up if it weren't for it being all over the news. Just another Right Wing talking point. In most places illegals can't even vote!!!!

for opposing their immigration to this country. the last thing we need is more socialists.

More Socialists? How dumb are you? Do you even know what a socialist is? Do you know the difference between liberalism and socialism? WOW!


Republicans are vile; they're deceivers; they're sneaks; they're cheats; they are immoral and have no ethicial structure whatsoever. I don't care if its a congressman or your momma, if they're a Republican they're thugs. They support mass murder and the destruction of this country!

Oh, when I say things like "how dumb are you", etc... Don't take it to heart. I get so heated when I talk about politics and I say things like that, lol. I talk on a bunch of forums and we all go back and forth. But you are nice about it so I shouldn't do it to you. My bad.
