I am an Oklahoman, proud to be a part of rural America, staunch in my conservative perspective, and appreciate the 'endangered species: common sense".

Riding on Coattails, Barry’s NEW History

Guest blog posting by long time BccList.com contributor and now friend (yes, even though we’re on polar opposites of the political spectrum), Ryan THE Conservative

Based on the following article from yes, FOX News Channel http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/05/16/white-house-under-fire-for-adding-obama-policy-plugs-to-past-presidents-bios/?intcmp=trending is the following:

Just when I think I’ve seen everything from the Obama White House, this floats along. Incredible! Not accomplishing anything of any POSITIVE substance apparently means spending the evening reading your predecessor’s resumes, then tacking your name on the end in ‘ditto’ fashion. Incredible and shameful. The following are some of which I theorize didn’t make the cut…I’d love to see what bcclister’s come up with also!

George Washington signed the U.S. Constitution. Barack Obama shredded it by signing the U.S. Health Care ‘overhaul’.

Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to travel outside of the continental United States while in office. In 1906, he traveled to Panama. Barack Obama was born…nevermind.

James Marshall reclaimed Air Force One from six Radek loyalists and Soviet ultranationalists, led by Egor Korshunov and posing as a Russian news crew. In 2008, Obama’s campaign accepted $31,050 in contributions from Harrison Ford http://www.newsmeat.com/celebrity_political_donations/Harrison_Ford.php . (That’s it, I’m throwing out my Air Force One DVD immediately.)

Bill Clinton lied about his relationship with 22 year old Monica Lewinsky, resulting in impeachment proceedings by the U.S. House following the 1998 Congressional elections. Barack Obama said he would largely solve the insoluble cost problem of Obama Care by eliminating “hundreds of billions of dollars in waste and fraud” from Medicare.

President Abraham Lincoln signed legislation that established the Department of Agriculture. Obama had a ham sandwich for lunch today.

And last but certainly not least: President George W. Bush served 2 terms as U.S. President. Obama needs help packing up his things in January when Romney is elected.

Politics, Parenthood, and the Pockets on My Shirt…

It took us just short of a year, but, now OFFICIALLY introducing BccList.com blog commenter: Ryan THE Conservative!

https://bcclist.com/2011/05/17/introducing-ryan-the-conservative/

I’m a Conservative by definition, and a Republican by default.  Truthfully, I am neither a true Republican or Democrat, as both parties are shining examples of what is wrong in American politics.  Politics has always drawn my attention though, so much so, that at one point in my past, I gave consideration to ‘throwing my own hat in the ring’ of Oklahoma politics, however I came to my senses and quickly entered the private business sector.

Currently, we as Americans are under the rule of the Obama/Leftist experiment.  This experiment in Socialism has proven to be a miserable failure, fueled on by partisan political maneuvers on both sides, a reckless economic situation, and a liberal media that is in love with the “Supreme Leader”.  I am one of the not so few, those that look at the U.S. Constitution as a basis for our great republic, one that sets forth our inalienable rights in the Bill of Rights, set forth by a group of great men who knew all too well the pitfalls of big government and extreme taxation.  The Obama administration stands for class warfare, wealth redistribution, and the nationalization of private enterprise.  Of tremendous importance, is the assault on the American Oil/Gas industry, of which is lauded by all within his corrupt administration.  Recently, there was a GE television commercial incorporating Budweiser employees making their product, then explaining to everyone at a bar how the beer wouldn’t be cold without their technology producing the power to run the refrigeration system used to chill the popular lager.  I argue that in the same sense, the American Oil/Gas industry does MORE, in fact there would be no plastic components, fossil fuels, and availability of such materials to even create the components of everyday life (and GE’s parts) that put together the power grid that ‘cools the beer’ of all.  Drilling for oil and gas in America is patriotic, and socially responsible given the recent charge that windmill farms are warming the earth, contributing to the farce of ‘global warming’.  For the first time, I will readily admit ‘man’s’ contribution to ‘global warming’, the environmentalists are actually speeding it up by installing these non-sustainable energy sources.  It’s ridiculous.

Next item: I’m all for isolationism.  I’ll go along with the leftist agenda of pulling all troops out of trouble areas throughout the world.  Let’s bring them home, and line them up along the southern border between the U.S. and Mexico.  The problem of illegal immigration will soon be solved by this.  In the past when confronted with a problem with foreign governments we utilize ineffective tactics such as embargoes and sanctions to deal with rogue governments and their leaders.  This is parenting 101: the other day my son threw a metal toy truck across the living room.  His defiance was impressive in that he had good distance, but unacceptable as we don’t throw things in the house.  I took it away and explained he would be without the toy for a week.  This had no affect on him whatsoever, he has at least 30 other similar trucks to play with.  The same applies to dictators of countries like North Korea, Iran, and Cuba: it doesn’t affect them in a meaningful way.  Instead, we should stop buying their products, stop trade all together, and become a self-sufficient nation.

Lastly, political posturing of both sides annoys me.  The recent focus on Romney’s family and the constant ‘doting’ the press does on the First lady is of no significance to my voting decisions or me.  I’m concerned with the President’s war on domestic energy production, his neurotic need to interject himself in controversial agendas such as directing his Justice Department not to prosecute the Black Panthers for election tampering and focusing on the Trayvon Martin case.  These two issues should not be a part of a Presidential agenda, it should be job creation and energy independence for instance.  My annoyance has eroded due to the skewed perception of American ‘media’ to the point it now equals my annoyance level I find when I wear a shirt with no pockets on it.  Sure, I can survive my day without an extra pocket to keep up with my things, but it makes it easier.  I am hoping the President buys some shirts with a pocket, and puts a copy of the bill of rights in that shirt pocket, and references it often.  He won’t, and the political posturing will continue, and the Republicans will point their fingers, as will the Democrats, and nothing will get done.  It’s an election year and so the games are in full swing.  I think I’m going to go change my shirt to one that has a pocket in it, and God willing in November when a Republican is elected to the highest office in the land, I will have some money left to put in that pocket.
