Meet Carlos Watson, MSNBC contributor and host of The C Note in his commentary forwarded the position that anyone who calls Obama a Socialist is really calling him a Ni***. Aside from the complete ignorance of Mr. Watson and others as to what Socialism is, something that describes Obama’s policies precisely, their immediate run to pull the race card is indicative of the collapse of ideals the left is experiencing.

Just some advice MSNBC contributors and others who believe that it’s just "white folks" who oppose Obamacare, it’s YOUR racism that is on display.

Rep. Harry Mitchell (D-AZ-6) held a town hall meeting, I wanted to go and get video but only just heard about it after it started.

Dems were too afraid to see public today, so public went to the Dems. About 2000 protesters showed up infront of Mitchell office Tweet

~2000 people and it was about 101 Degrees at that time. Kinda cool for early August, Darn global warming.

No matter, as we here know the result was as it has been across this great nation, Democrats are being beaten like a rented mule over the Obamacare disgrace.

While not able to attend, fellow Phoencian and frequent Twitterer Hellebore5000 was and he got some great pictures:

Full set here.

And of course the requisite Youtube Video.

I;m sorry I was not aware of this as I would have gone, but no matter, there will be plenty more. And seeing as AZ-6 is traditionally a Republican district, having been only narrowly won in 2006 and 2008, it’s my understanding that ‘ol Harry may have some re-election problems in 2010.

And of course if you are using Twitter, and now is a great time to be, follow Hellebore5000, among others PhxGonline (shameless plug).

There are many rumors going around about what is and is not include in the text of the bill that is currently being discussed by the House of Representatives. Please check back here soon for a guide to separating the rumors from the facts. –2009, Ann Kirkpatrick House Website

At 1:05 she gets up and walks out of her own town hall meeting, one she called and planned several weeks in advance in Holbrook, AZ. I guess this congresswoman, one who bamboozled her constituents into voting for less D.C. and more Arizona style politics by sounding like a conservative was not willing to dispel the rumors to the people in her district.

 

Run Ann Run…..As Fast As You Can.

With regards to Jesus (The Apologist) Diaz over at Gizmodo who found this:

The Japanese resolve to fight had been seriously hampered in the preceding months. Their losses at Iwo Jima and Okinawa had been staggering. Their navy had ceased to exist as an effective fighting force and the air corps had been decimated. American B-29’s made bombing runs over military targets on the Japanese mainland an integral part of their air campaign. Japan’s lack of air power hindered their ability to fight. The imprecision of bombing and the use of devastating city bombing in Europe eventually swayed United States Pacific theater military leaders to authorize bombing of Japanese mainland cities. Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Kobe all were decimated by incendiary and other bombs. In all, hundreds of thousands of civilians were killed in these air strikes meant to deter the resolve of the Japanese people. Yet, Japanese resolve stayed strong and the idea of a bloody "house to house" invasion of the Japanese mainland would produce thousands more American and Allied casualties. The Allies in late July 1945 declared at Potsdam that the Japanese must unconditionally surrender.

After Japanese leaders flatly rejected the Potsdam Declaration, President Truman authorized use of the atomic bomb anytime after August 3, 1945. (From the Truman Library)

On August 6, 1945, the cumulated works of the Manhattan Project came to fruition in the first release of a nuclear device in time of war. Within seconds of the impact and estimated 70,000 Japanese inhabitants of Hiroshima were killed. Three days later the second, and last nuclear attack ever was completed on Nagasaki.

Shortly thereafter Emperor Hirohito made the following statement:

Moreover, the enemy now possesses a new and terrible weapon with the power to destroy many innocent lives and do incalculable damage. Should we continue to fight, not only would it result in an ultimate collapse and obliteration of the Japanese nation, but also it would lead to the total extinction of human civilization.

Such being the case, how are We to save the millions of Our subjects, or to atone Ourselves before the hallowed spirits of Our Imperial Ancestors? This is the reason why We have ordered the acceptance of the provisions of the Joint Declaration of the Powers.

Which led to this:

surrender

The Japanese unconditional surrender on September 2, 1945. Which ultimately saved millions of lives because the Japanese culture would have produced a fight to the death for every person, military or civilian alike had Operation Downfall been commenced.

A tough call, but one that was made in the best interests of America. Thank you President Truman.

To everyone that comes here, still, thank you.

I wish to express my appreciation and apologize that I have not been more active. Turns out I have a problem in the head. Which according to many, this has been the case for some time.

Without getting into the details I have, which my neurologist explained as "something" causing pressure upon my optic nerve. Because of the pressure, it may kill the nerve resulting in blindness. And there you have it folks.

What this means: I have at best 30-45 minutes a day where I can look at a computer screen or TV or anything without enduring a migraine like headache. Posting this has taken most of my internet time today, so you are worth it.
