My Visit to the Dark Side...UPDATED


"Rick the owner of the dark side blog I visited called me a coward in the comment section here. So I went to his blog to see what he had said that he thought I was so afraid of. Here is his answer to me in his comments:

Rick said...
Annette, yest I will gladly publish your comment so other readers can see how uninformed you are.
To begin with, the official Democratic party has dropped the lie that Bush stole the election. Two news consortiums and independent organizations have concluded bush won according to law. Gore tried to steal the election and failed to do so.
You also need to review who was the governor and mayor of New Orleans and how they dropped the ball and failed to correct problems that were presented to them.
You also need to know that the Two Democrats in charge of oversight of the financial affairs, Democrats Barney Frank, and Chris Dodd, when told to investigate Freddy and Fanny, refused to do so and said they were in good shape. That is where the financial meltdown began.
Here are the Democrats in charge of all Senate and House Finances for the past two years:
1.The United States Senate Banking Committee : Committee Chairman,
Christopher Dodd, (D), Subcommittees of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and Subcommittee Chair;
2.Securities, Insurance, and Investment - Jack Reed (D-RI);
3.Financial Institutions - Tim Johnson (D-SD);
4.Housing, Transportation, and Community Development - Chuck Schumer (D-NY);
5.Economic Policy - Tom Carper (D-DE);
6.Security and International Trade and Finance - Evan Bayh (D-IN)
7.The House Financial Services Committee: Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA);
8.The United States House Committee on Financial Services (or House Banking Committee) oversees the entire financial services industry, including the
securities, insurance, banking, and housing industries. The Committee also oversees the work of the Federal Reserve, the United States Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and other financial services regulators. Subcommittees and Subcommittee Chair: Capital Markets, Insurance - Paul Kanjorski (D-PA).
You need to get your head out of the sand and quit reading the "Hate Bush Derangement Syndrome" sources and tyical Democrat lies.
And I hope you have a nice evening.

My answer to him is in the comment section here... so far as of 6:53 CST 2/3/2009 he hasn't answered me. But there is still

I was just out looking at the competition.. yeah...I know.. No I wasn't cheating on anyone so don't think I was.. Just looking around. Sometimes you just have to see what's out there and make sure what you are up against.

Anyway, it was an anti-choice blog. VERY. From that won't mean a lot to many people, but to me it said a lot because it was talking about Phil Kline. He WAS a District Attorney who got himself into some hot water for taking on Planned Parenthood and for trying to get into the private files of doctors and patients. Kinda sleazy I think.

Needless to say he lost his bid for re-election, thank goodness. Resoundingly I might add.

Anyway, this blog had a short video up about How Liberty Dies.

After watching this, I couldn't help but make a comment on his blog. Now he has his comments moderated, so I really figure it will never show up...but he might fool me. The name of the blog is Rick's Pro-Life & Constitutional Issues Blog Here is the comment I made:

Yep, we have an idiot who steals an election, gets into the White House, ignores intelligence briefings, lets the worst terrorist attack ever happen on his watch. Then after going after the guys who attack us cuts taxes on the richest people, which is unheard of in a time of war, then lies his way into another war, and cuts taxes on the richest people again. Then watches while a city drowns and celebrates a birthday with a man he slandered to get to the White House 5 years before. Then after all that, losing most of the wealth of the nation as the economy tanks and Wall Street suffers it's greatest losses in years and employment suffers the greatest losses in 26 years and the country goes into the largest and longest recession it has seen in 60 years... that's how liberty dies... and I am sure I have missed some things.

I think that was a pretty good summation of the last 8 Then of course we have Blue Gal, who noticed the same thing I did this morning on This Week with George Stephanopoulos.. He wanted to SHHHHHHH Barney Frank when he brought up the spending that has gone on the last 8 years.

Crooks & Liars has the transcript but and I will put it here too.

FRANK: Well, let me tell you what I think is the largest...

DEMINT: ... you wanted to do anyway.

FRANK: The largest spending bill in history is going to turn out to be the war in Iraq. And one of the things, if we're going to talk about spending, I don't -- I have a problem when we leave out that extraordinarily expensive, damaging war in Iraq, which has caused much more harm than good, in my judgment.
And I don't understand why, from some of my conservative friends, building a road, building a school, helping somebody get health care, that's -- that's wasteful spending, but that war in Iraq, which is going to cost us over $1 trillion before we're through -- yes, I wish we hadn't have done that. We'd have been in a lot better shape fiscally.

STEPHANOPOULOS: That is a whole another show, so I'm going to...
FRANK: That's the problem. The problem is that we look at spending and say, "Oh, don't spend on highways. Don't spend on health care. But let's build Cold War weapons to defeat the Soviet Union when we don't need them. Let's have hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars going to the military without a check." Unless everything's on the table, then you're going to have a disproportionate hit in some places.

Barney Frank is right, the media never wants to talk about this. They always cut off the conversation and tend to forget about the fact that one of the reasons we are in this mess is due to the fact the spending has been out of control the last 8 years. We have been in a needless war, that Bush lied us into and that caused our spending to be out of control.

We are in a hole, yes, some of the spending can be blamed on the Dems just as much as the Repubs, but for the first 6 years it was the Repubs who dug the deepest, and dug the most. The Dems just carried the water for them to drink when they got thirsty.

Well, now it is time it was reversed. The Dems are trying to fill that hole back in and they need the Repubs to carry that water... but the Repubs don't want to do it. Instead they are trying to break the handles on the shovels. Well it won't work that way. You have to have shovels to dig, and you have to have shovels to fill the holes once they are dug. Someone has to carry the matter who is doing the digging. I think it is the Repubs turn to carry.

Brave brave girl.... crossing over to the other side !
Nobody wants to talk about the *elephant in the room*.... how much we continue to spend on the wars. Yes the GOP started it, but the dems have no excuse either. They did have a majority for 2 years in both houses & failed to make a difference.
March will be 6 years we are in Iraq & Afghanistan.

Annette, I didn't think you would go coward on me and not post my response. Maybe I should re-post it on my blog and link yours. Are all pro-abortion supporters this afraid of a good debate? When you pick a fight with me, make sure you have the staying power.
May you have a good evening.

Annette said...

Gee, I am not a coward... just really didn't have anything more to say to you. I made my point, said what I had to say and moved on.
You evidently had more you wanted to say. As you can see...I don't hide, You accused me of being a coward, which I am not, you said I hate Bush, which I don't, and I like a good debate as much as anyone.
But, as I said I really had nothing else to say to you, because I learned a long time ago, arguing with a Republican or a Conservative is like wrestling with a pig in mud, you soon realize they are enjoying it, so you stop.

Rick said...

Hey, you've stolen my line, e.g., that you can't argue with a liberal as they know more than Republicans, Conservatives, and even God!
So those who protect the lives of the innocent pre-born from being murdered by women who "chose" their will over the "no-choice" of the pre-born, are on the dark side?

I suppose you don't like to argue with Christians, either.
Have a good day and don't feel obligated to respond. But do feel free to read my latest blog article.

Annette said...

I think it is amazing that you judge people you don't even know.. you love to quote scripture.. How about.. Judge not lest you be judged.

I am a Christian. I am not Pro-Abortion but you just assume that I am.. see that's what gets me about your type.. you just assume all kinds of things without ever knowing what you are talking about. That's why I don't lower myself to your level of discourse. There is nothing to gain by getting to the level that you are on, except getting my feet in the mud, and that's somewhere I don't want to be.

Rick said...

Annette, The new "unpardonable sin" is "judging." What a blessing this "new commandment" is to "Easy Christianity." Hypocrites can flaunt their violations of the Word of God and yet parade unchallenged as Christians. No one dares call them hypocrites for ("Oh, Horrors!") that would be "judging them."
It can't mean that we must give up all spiritual discernment in order to be "loving Christians." Five verses later Jesus says, "Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine" (Matthew 7:6). This command assumes the exercise of spiritual discernment. A few verses later Jesus said, "Beware of false prophets...You will know them by their fruits" (Matthew 7:15,16,20). Again Jesus demands spiritual discernment. In Jesus' view it is not "judging" to conclude that someone is a false prophet. Nor is it judging to reveal the hypocrisy of Liberals, whose fruits reveal them to be what they are.
