A Boxer’s Dozen: More Batty Than a Kentucky Cave!

I searched for articles this morning on the confirmation of Dr. Condoleeza Rice as our new Secretary of State. I had planned on doing a written response to the Boxer’s Dozen and their prostitution of our political process with their pompous grandstanding. I am disgusted and ashamed of the misconduct of our US Senators. They would have most of us believe that this was about serious issues and questions that the “American People” deserve to have addressed. They play a different tune to the fringe base that these particular nay-sayers are trying to appeal to. This fringe is fed the story that they are “fighting” the eeevil Republicans and their Imperialist agenda. After what seemed like endless reading and a lot of key pounding to make each point, I finally just stopped. This was ridiculous.

I could take apart each of these Senators words and make point after point after point. None of this would ever register to them. Truth is not on their radar right now. Truth is not the point. The problem is that they are losing their grip on their control of our government. This is paramount in their universe. Only power motivates them. They are creating every opportunity possible to convince America that there is no War on Terror. They want you to believe that this War on Terror is nothing more than an eeevil plot by the Bush administration (Karl Rove) to scare the American people into keeping them in office so they can make Cheney’s buddies rich.

The danger of this is beyond grossly underestimated. All the twisted phrases and bullet points will never get the fringe Liberals to stop their pandemonium. It is not the War on Terror that will bring this country down. It is the ability of the enemy to work together. Iran and Iraq were dedicated enemies, but right now, Iran is doing all they can (under the radar) to help defeat the Coalition in Iraq. They get it. They realize that the real threat to their existence is not Iraq; it is Democracy. When will the left start to get it? When will they realize that it is not the Republicans that are the real enemies? While they are teaching their children that the eeevil in this world is their own country, Capitalism, and the Christian right wing (yeah….they are the REAL oppressors-{eye roll}); the enemy is teaching their children the exact same thing.

The truth is harsh at times. What are we teaching our children? What we need is TRUTH IN NEWS! I could list example after example of how the enemy is united with anyone who will oppose us, and how the Hard Left Liberals are joining the parade, but I think a picture is worth a thousand words. This is why we are rejoicing over the elections in Iraq. This is what the enemy is teaching their kids:



So, while Boxer and her gang of liars, traitors, boozers, and KKK buddies want to grandstand, fill our TV screens with outlandish childish behavior, alienate most of the African American Community, and act as batty as a Kentucky cave; I will leave you with the image above and my favorite quote.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

  • Nice pic you Nazi

    Bush is the one trying to allow evil to triumph! We need people like Senator Boxer to stand up to it. That's your TRUTH IN NEWS! You can't debate the points, because you don't HAVE ANY!

  • Sherri -- well it looks like you picked up some LLL/stalkers! Which is what I wanted to ask you about. I'm a LGF 'lurker' (not registered) or I'd post on LGF now. This character called Lizardoid Observer is posting everywhere, Atrios, Jesus General, DU, you name it. I think the 'regulars' at LGF need to know, since they have an idea who it is.

  • Chris from MT -
    Lizardoid Observer is Larry Schmerel. Frank IBC and Iron Fist 'outed' him. They're the ones who need to know about this. He's a real traitor to LGF in my opinion.

    The Inaugural Ball: Dancing with Wolves
    by Susan Lenfestey


    It's time to party.

    As the families of bomb-flattened Fallujah huddle in make-shift refugee camps, drinking from sewage-filled streams, Iraqi policy mastermind Paul Wolfowitz fastens the last stud into his starched collar.

    As the Iraq Survey Group ends its search for WMD, concluding that there was no imminent mushroom cloud or even a smoking gun, Condi Rice draws herself a hot bath.

    As Sgt. Kevin Benderman, an Army mechanic with nine years of service, refuses a second deployment to Iraq, saying "you just don't know how bad it is," Colin Powell pours himself a drink.

    As Specialist Charles A. Graner, miscreant and major-domo of Abu Ghraib, shuffles off to prison, Donald Rumsfeld straightens the black tie of his tux.

    As the 9/11 widow tucks her children into bed, wondering why the recommendations made in the 9/11 Commission Report weren't implemented, Tom Ridge tightens his cummerbund.

    As prisoners charged with no crimes, and given no recourse, languish in the hellhole of Guantanamo Bay, torture apologist Alberto Gonzales clicks his cufflinks into place.

    As Dan Rather retires in disgrace over forged documents, former CIA Director George Tenet, proponent of forged documents about Iraq's nonexistent nuclear program, adjusts the Medal of Freedom around his neck.

    As the working mother in Chicago wonders how to keep her child from being left behind now that her special-ed program has been cut, Armstrong Williams polishes his shoes.

    As Valerie Plame walks away from a distinguished career as a CIA "operative," destroyed when her identity was revealed by columnist Robert Novak, Mr. Novak walks to his limo.

    As Osama bin Laden chuckles in his cave to see America's fortunes sink in the morass of Iraq and as fresh recruits to his cause multiply like flies, Dick Cheney pops the cork on a bottle of Dom Perignon.

    As America's trade gap surges and the red ink in the national debt bleeds to a record level, Treasury Secretary John Snow finishes shaving and dabs at a spot of blood on his chin.

    As the Republican Congress gets ready to underfund everything from Head Start to veterans' benefits, Speaker Dennis Hastert checks his profile in the mirror.

    As Pfc. Francis Obaji, oldest son of an immigrant Nigerian family, is zipped into a body bag for the sad journey home, Laura Bush zips up her Oscar de la Renta gown.

    And as his corporate pals, forgetting for a moment the bottom line that forces them to ship jobs overseas, slide their millions across the table to dance at his ball, George W. Bush pulls on his snakeskin boots.

  • Well, I guess anonymous doesn't have the courage to put a id to his post. What a punk and sounds like someone played hookey and skipped school today. Feel proud Sherri, you have a troll!

  • Groupies, minions, & trolls. Wow, I am impressed, Sherri! You know you're doing either really good or really bad when this happens. In any case, you make a difference. I like it.
    On topic, it amazes me that so much ado was made about a foregone conclusion. The dirty choir loves it, but that bunch has already proven itself impotent in the last election. They merely contribute to the further alienation of the people they really need.

    By Blogger Right Wing Nut Job, at 11:17 PM  

  • Sherri:
    I think there may be an effort to distract from the election - Okay, Teddy is outright trying to help the terrorists derail it. However, there seems to be a dearth of information in the media (including centrists such as Fox News) regarding what the election is really all about. To put this into historical terms we can understand, compare it to our own Constitutional Convertion. And remember that the U.S. had its Articles of Confederation well before the Constitution. The AoC did not work very well. So we can still accept a lot of growing pains even when Iraq is successful. And you know the LLL will jump all over every pain.
    How would you like Babs Boxer and Ted Kennedy as Lamaze coaches during the delivery of your child?

    By Blogger Right Wing Nut Job, at 11:48 PM  

  • - The thunderous applause and congratulatory writing, as well as a reasonable amount of Iraqi election coverage, will be wanting from the MSM this weekend. What you will see is full page 30 pt. yammering concerning every terrorist that lobs a bomb or in some way has an effect on a polling places. Never mind the mindless slaughter of Iraqi citizens by the murdering Jihadists. Whats important to the liberal media is that the war was wrong and the DNC is busily trying to decide which one of the braindead, out of touch liberals ,will run their circus for the next four years. The timing of Kennedy's public display of treachery is ment to draw attention away from the elections. All of that. But you know what. I'm pulling for the Democraps to keep up the drumbeat and drive the donkey right over the cliff. Boozer-King Kennedy is a disgrace to the memory of his brothers. I only hope I live long enough to see that bastard sent home to Mess-achew-sucks into political oblivion.....

  • So 'L.S.' is now trying to say he's not Lizardoid Observer. Yeah, right. The fact is that Iron Fist, one of the strongest and most intelligent posters on LGF totally busted L.S. over a week ago. One of the problems with a board like LGF is you have a lot of competition for posts. Iron Fist has such a strong voice and such a good following that jealousy is inevitable. If you look at the attention-seeking of L.S. this becomes obvious. The way he tries to push his posts everywhere with lots of cut-n-paste BS, whereas Iron Fist just has his authentic voice, which everyone responds to. It's sad really. Charles has a 'big tent' approach to his readers, and this means he lets them sort these kind of things out. L.S. is way way out of his league, and he should have thought about the consequences when he decided to try and cut Iron Fist down. Guess he's learning the hard way.

    Fist Fan.

  • What a joke from the troll Sherri. Making comments about your Christianity; guess that person knows hypocracy, since it is obvious from their post. Guess whoever is making accusations about you does not know what 1 Corinthians 13 is about, huh?

    Don't let some anonymous moron get to you Sherri; take it as a badge of honor. We are all behind you and know the truth.

    By Blogger jlfintx, at 1:15 PM  

  • Sherri- This is Alice. I agree with the last poster, but I don't think for one second you would be bothered by that ridiculous post. You are a fine strong woman doing the best for your family. Hooray for you!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:38 PM  

  • When I stated about that 'Lizardoid Observer' was Lawrence Schmemer, I should have said that I didn't know this for sure. I was going on several posts by Iron Fist who seems certain. I don't think that Iron Fist is the kind of person who would just make this up either. I do agree with the above poster about jealousy though. There's no doubt that Iron Fist has a huge following at LGF, second only to Charles. Naturally, people get jealous.

  • Iron Fist identified the problem weeks ago.
    And he had the courage to post it in the open.
    The person concerned said nothing (does that give a clue?)
    Now the person concerned is denying it.

    Yeah, right.

  • What I don't understand, fake jlfintx is how you have the balls to deny being 'lizardoid observer' after you were caught.

    I'll say it again. You were caught. Iron Fist caught you. And when he accused you you never denied it. Now a bunch of people are doing the same, you are lying like the LIAR you are. You should GET OFF LGF.

    I don't beleive that the fake jlfintx is Lizardoid Observer. Just for the record.

  • Look

    I am going to make this VERY CLEAR!

    I am THRILLED to have so much action on my blog-- but- I will not tolerate ANY foul language-- PERIOD!

    jlfintx is VERY VERY dear to me. As is Hunter, Right Wing Nut Job, Levi From Queens, Dr Liberty, etc- (please do not feel left out if I did not metion you- a little hot under the collar at the moment)

    ANY ONE wants to do personal attacks- DO IT ELSEWHERE! If you don't have the BALLS-- and yes, I said BALLS-- TO POST A COMMENT WITH JUST A TAD OF INTEGRITY (ie- not using someone else's nic as a farce)-- THEN DON'T POST! I would like to leave the anonymous option open so people feel free to comment without being intimidated by the idea of starting a blog.

  • Bravely said, Sherri! Unfortunately, as your blog gets noticed and linked to, this is what happens. I'm afraid that as long as a 'certain someone' is allowed to play the 'mole' at LGF, trouble will continue. But you can deal with it, as you have proven. I think the best tactic for dealing with the 'Mole' is to ignore his posts completely. 'Gaze' if you will.

    Name Witheld for Obvious Reasons! (One of your pals tho'!)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:46 PM  

  • I don't think that 'ignoring' an obvious mole is the way a MAN like Iron Fist operates. He calls them as he sees them. That's why he is so popular. But go ahead and 'GAZE' at LS if you like. Others will step up to the plate, like jlfintx, because that's the stuff they're made of. LS IMO is more dangerous that any LLL. He is privy to inside info at LGF, can exchange email with the leaders there and generally play the part of a traitor. These are dangerous times, and we simply can't afford that kind of behavior, in our country or on our blog. Look the guy was BUSTED. Period. When a man of honor like I.F. says he is sure, that's good enough for me.
