Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Getting under my skin

I love reading Wil Wheaton's blog until it comes to politics. He is one of my favorite bloggers. He is witty and smart and a talented writer.

He is also one of the Hollywood lefties who seems so incredulous that some people might not agree with him and insinuates that me and others like me resemble the missing link because of our beliefs.

From Wil:
"Apparently, my country holds a fundamentally different set of values than I thought we did, and that scares the shit out of me. I still believe that Bush is bad for America, and though I'm virtually certain that the next four years will be an absolute disaster. Not just because we have gotten four more years of the Bush agenda, but because this election has been an enthusiastic endorsement of that agenda."

Ok, what agenda would that be? Allowing parents to have vouchers and pick which school they'd like to send their child to? Giving me back the hard-earned tax dollars I paid to the government? Government funding for faith-based initiatives to help the needy instead of food stamps or AFDC? The war on terror and taking that war to where the fucking terrorists live (i.e. Middle East) or waiting for the pig-fuckers to come to us? Banning partial birth abortions?

I could go down a laundry list of why I voted for Bush, but the thing is, it won't change too many people's opinions if they are dyed in the wool lefties. I may think people like Wil are misguided, but I won't infer that he is stupid or doesn't understand what is at stake. I'm sure he and others like him have an understanding of the issues and they just have a different opinion than I do. To quote Wil, that scares the shit out of me, too.

    I can see that. He really is very insightful when he is on topics that he cares about. I also like reading his poker posts. I'd like to think I'm becoming quite the online poker player.

    Some libs are moonbats ... example - Michael Moore.

    Some libs are ok. You're not a lib. You're more a moderate/independent with both lib and conservative views.

    Yep, it has been vicious on both sides of the issue. We have had FAMILY emails going back and forth between a favorite aunt who has been drinking the Michael Moore kool-aid and the rest of the family. It was nasty and this was FAMILY!

    I guess my point with this entry was that he is scared by the agenda of Bush supporters ... there are some issues that don't bother me (gay marriage) and I plan to have my say with my elected officials about my non-position on that and tell them to chill out, but there are many issues that Bush supports that I can't feature as being scary to anyone unless they have some stake in it (i.e. public school teacher who gives a rat's ass about the students she teaches doesn't want vouchers because she will be out of a job eventutally).

    So, yeah, I think Wil is a moonbat when it comes to his politics. There. I said it.

    Bush won a clear mandate. When that happens his agenda gets pushed along and through the halls of Congress. Twas always this way.

    Do you suppose all of the lefties who claimed they would leave if Bush got reelected will keep their promise?

    I dunno. I think he is mid-30s or so and he has two pre-teen step sons. He should have a better grasp in my opinion. But, then again, I've been penned unpleasant by a leftie blogger, so I must live up to that title.

    Wesley Crusher is in his mid 30s!?

    My God, I'm old. This was never supposed to happen to me.

    It happens to the best of us. Every time I look in the mirror I wonder who that old lady is looking at me.

    I'll be 36 on Sunday.
