Army of Mom

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

I think I just threw up in my mouth

I use Gmail (Google's version of email) because it allows me to have giant storage availability, which is important when sources are sending me large jpegs to accompany stories. My regular email would never accommodate that, so it is good in that respect. I'm not a giant fan of Google, overall, because of its left political leanings, but I try to get past that, just as I do when I want to watch movies featuring George Clooney and the rest of the moonbat patrol.

A feature of Gmail that I don't like is the ad stuff that pops up along the top and the side that has some relation to what I'm discussing in my emails. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I see some hopeless loser monitoring email, cackling hysterically when he sees something like "Obama is an idiot" come through my email and then he pops up this ad at the top of my email:

"Why Mommy is a Democrat" book for children.

I shit you not.

Part of the summary about the book:
Using plain and non-judgmental language, along with warm and whimsical illustrations, these colorful 28-page paperbacks depict the Democratic principles of fairness, tolerance, peace, equality, and concern for the well-being of others.

*ack, cough* I'm sorry, I'm still throwing up in my mouth a little bit. I think I'd like to see what the authors say about why this mommy votes Republican.

Here would be their summary of that book:
Using superflous and quite judgmental language, along with graphic images of prisoner abuse in Abu Ghraib, these colorful 28-page paperbacks depict the Republican principals of invading foreign lands, making underhanded deals with Halliburton, lying to the American public and providing firearms to everyone in America.

*shaking my head*

MY explanation of a book explaining to children why their mommy is a liberal:
Using plain and non-judgmental language, along with warm and whimsical illustrations, these colorful 28-page paperbacks depict the Democratic principles of killing babies in the womb, taking away your rights, the ways of retreat, limiting your free speech and inviting illegals from across the globe to suckle off our welfare system while also providing your American rights to terrorists.

Yeah, I like that book better.

And, then the explanation book for my children about why I vote Republican:
Using plain and non-judgmental language, along with warm and whimsical illustrations, these colorful 28-page paperbacks depict the Republican principles of less government, more responsibility for ourselves, the value of life at all stages, morals, the importance of the Bill of Rights and helping our allies around the world with might and firepower, when we have to.

What do you think? I sort of like it. Maybe I'll create my own book. I'll even use Pickle's unintentional name for the liberal party from when he was a little fella: The Democrabs.

Editor's Note: While reading about the author, I had to crack up, too, because he lives with his partner (and he is apparently not gay.) Nope, none of that old-fashioned marriage stuff for them. They're far too advanced for that.

*shaking my head*

    If you are using Firefox like a good doobie, you can shut off ALL ads using a plugin called AdBlock Plus. It's free. I've been using it for two years and would NEVER go back to seeing the Internet with ads.

    People talk about crazy ads all the time, but I never see them, and I rather like it that way!

    AoM, ad blockers exist for any ISP but personally, I kinda enjoy the oddities that pop up. Just make sure you are properly protected to ensure you don't download spyware.

    Love the idea for the book and I'll buy a copy from you for my grandsons as soon as you've written it. If you are looking for an illustrator, my son's pretty good... Write me if you are seriously considering it.

    Well, I don't want to start a whole catfight about political opinions, but in my opinion, the Bill of Rights is an awfully lame excuse to justify having guns.

    Basically what everyone says about The Bill of Rights is that since we have the right to own guns, WE SHOULD. FOR SELF-DEFENSE.

    Right. The Heston logic of argument. But at the same time, that logic is flawed. Because we can, we should?

    There are so many countries out there that don't depend on guns for self-defense. They depend on subtle power, government strength and non-violent means.

    It's rather self-contradictory when you talk about guns as a means of defense, when guns are actually the means of offense.

    If you ban guns altogether, won't that cut down (NOT solve) the problem quickly and easily. Defense and safety then becomes secondary, and how nice will that be!

    My biggest gripe for Republican way of thinking is the use of violence, specifically gun laws, and also the 'using might and firepower' to help our allies reason.

    Might and firepower DOESN'T equal war.

    'Nuff said.

    As for abortion laws, I kinda agree on the Republican side. Life is there at all stages. Which is why, rights or not, you're not supposed to shoot someone, in offense or defense.

    So, Karl, let me just ask you this question. If you are home with your wife and kids and two armed me burst into your house for a home invasion robbery. Likely they'll want to rape your wife in front of your children after they tie you up, so you can watch, too. You wouldn't like to have a gun in that situation to stop the bandits before they do harm to your family? Would you plan to try to defend your family with a baseball bat or a steak knife? I'm sure you'll say in a perfect world that they don't have guns. That isn't going to happen. Bad guys will have guns, so I feel ok being armed myself.

    Additionally, we are responsible gun-owners and it is just plain fun to go to the shooting range and shoot. As long as we're safe, what harm is there in that?
