THE CONVENTION GRUDGE-LAST DAY

Posted by Pistol Pete

This week has been a real whirlwind.Good times,good people,amazing speeches.The enemedia were let out of the sanitorium long enough to provide comic relief with their juvenile antics.Like a petulant kid playing with a rat trap.You know what’s going to happen,but you watch anyway.

Now that Mitt is the official nominee,he can use the $186 million he could not legally use before.It’s a safe bet he’ll use it much more wisely than Obozo does.If the past is any indication,it’s going to get really nasty.Kinda makes you feel good inside.

Now on to the DNC.I must confess I don’t plan to waste a lot of time watching a bunch of nobodies saying a lot of nothing about nothing.I just refuse to believe that the American people are more concerned about gay marriage and abortion than they are about how they’re going to feed their kids and keep a roof over their heads.One thing is certain–there will be a clear choice in this election.

I’VE BEEN BY THIS PLANT MANY TIMES

THE CONVENTION GRUDGE – DAY 4

Posted by Pistol Pete

Another night with no sleep.I watch the convention until 10:30-11:00,then I’m too amped up to sleep since I’m up by 12:30-1:00 7 days a week.Its OK,its a labor of love.Besides,I’ll get plenty of sleep next week.There’s nothing on TV worth watching then.

The speeches last night were stunning.DW,who has absolutely no interest in politics,sat and watched Ryan’s speech with me.I think she has a crush on him.Young,blue-eyed,ripped body and a razor-sharp mind.What does she see in him?

 

Short items I may not link to:

Clint Eastwood has been confirmed as the guest speaker tonight.

“Get off my South Lawn.”(just made that up)

The news this morning said Akin is back up by 3 points on Aire Claire in Mo.Priebus still insisits the RNC won’t send him any money even if they’re tied.I’m betting if its that close in October,the RNC will get him some money somehow.No sense cutting off your nose to spite your face.

A new judge has been ordered in the George Zimmerman case.This is not surprising to me since the original judge has shown himself to be blatantly biased.

It’s been a little amusing to see liberal heads detonate.We knew they would.They get more shrill and unhinged every day.

Obama sent form letters to bereaved military families

Words fail me. He uses them for campaign props and takes credit for their achievements. But he’s too damn lazy to even sign bereavement letters to their families with his own damn pen? This makes me want to vomit. Literally. I can taste the bile.

During his time in office, President Bush sent personal letters to the families of every one of the more than 4,000 troops who died in Iraq and Afghanistan. He met privately with more than 500 families of troops killed in action and spent personal time with more than 950 wounded veterans.

After the Fort Hood shooting, while the sitting Commander-in-Chief and his wife kicked back at Camp David, George and Laura went to Ford Hood and met privately with the wounded and bereaved. There were no reporters. No look at us moments. The only reason we know is because some of the folks they met with chose to share their photos on the internet.

Sugar Daddy in Chief

This reminds me of what Chris Christie said at the convention about people who care more about winning re-election than about doing the job they were elected to do and about how it is our duty to tell our fellow Americans the truth.

Glaring hate in the media

It’s clear from the context that the anti-Republican hate is generally accepted amongst Chalian and his co-workers. In the video, several of his fellow employees laughed at what he said, another seems to have made a quip back and, in his apology, Chalian refers to the remark as a joke. Some joke.

And what was their bff, Barack, doing while Republicans were allegedly too busy partying to care about the victims of Hurricane Isaac? Well, on Monday, the President did nothing at all.

On Tuesday, he read a statement about Tropical Storm Isaac. Then, he left the White House for a series of campaign events in Iowa and Colorado. On Wednesday, he flew from Colorado to Charlottesville, Virginia, for yet another campaign event, then returned to the White House. Thursday and Friday, he again has nothing scheduled. Nothing at all.

THE CONVENTION GRUDGE-DAY 3

Posted by Pistol Pete

All I can say is ‘wow.’ I sat through the whole thing yesterday(it’s good being retired) as I watched,I couldn’t help but think of how markedly different this convention will be from the one next week.Like going from Realville to Fantasy Island.Anyone the least bit objective had to come away with a positive attitude.

The left,predictably,would be oozing bile from every pore,if reptiles had pores.Right after the speeches ended,I flipped over to MSDNC and Tom Brokejaw,Tingles and Butch were griping nobody gave a shoutout to the military.If that’s all they have,they’re really grasping at straws.The Newsbusters website is rife with articles of generic conservative-bashing by the leftists,but I won’t waste your time posting any of it.You’ve heard it all before,you’ll no doubt hear it again.I’m posting a thread with links to last night’s speeches(you knew I would) and they’re all worth watching.If you have limited time,I highly recommend watching Mia Love,Chris Christie and especially Ann Romney,who was stunning.

The wisdom of God

I just read an interesting thing about the first line of the Bible in http://www.geraldschroeder.com/HiddenFace.aspx/

Schroeder says the Hebrew actually makes more sense if you translate it “With wisdom, God created” rather than “In the beginning, God created.”

The Hebrew can mean either “in the beginning of” or “with wisdom.” The latter makes sense syntactically and he cites a number of places in Scripture that also support the “wisdom” translation theologically.

The Catholic Bible (New American Bible Revised Edition) chose to render the passage “In the beginning, when God created.” The footnote says:

Until modern times the first line was always translated, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Several comparable ancient cosmogonies, discovered in recent times, have a “when…then” construction, confirming the translation “when…then” here as well. “When” introduces the pre-creation state and “then” introduces the creative act affecting that state. The traditional translation, “In the beginning,” does not reflect the Hebrew syntax of the clause. http://www.usccb.org/bible/genesis/1

I confess, I am very disappointed at the Catholic translators’ decision to choose extra-Biblical sources (i.e., pagan creation stories) to justify going with “when…then” especially seeing as it ALSO does not reflect the Hebrew syntax of the clause!
