Joe Dan Takes On Islam

with 5 comments

Joe Dan Gorman graces us with his latest entry, “Live to Die,” challenging the notion of radical Islam.

When a “God” promises fame, fortune, and “Paradise” for the deeds of spreading death and destruction, is that any sort of deity we want to be associated with?

I have said in the past and will again: I don’t care what Church you go to, or how you address your prayers. And I don’t care if you don’t, for that matter. But the time has long passed for all you so-called “moderate Muslims” to come out from the shadows, and tell us in no uncertain terms, that the practices of the extremists in your midst do NOT reflect your beliefs.

I believe that if you do so, you will find more acceptance than you ever thought you would.

Post Election, Part One Late and Tired

with one comment

A very good write up, much of what is here mirrors my own feelings.

Not sure sure if I was too “personally” wrapped up in Mo-5 to celebrate the rest of the GOP victory, or if it was so overwhelming the results were simply anti-climactic, either way, I’ve sort of been surprised at my own “blahs” all day after one of the greatest mid-terms ever. But, Ace and Monty share a pretty good point.

I will say this, Ace: Your “Be The Wave” campaign was, I think, more successful than you realize. I honestly think that with some more advance notice, and a little more planning, it would have been even better. Why? I’ve seen people, friends, reposting the “be the wave” video on their Facebook pages, some of who I know have NEVER read Ace.Mu.Nu. So don’t walk away. Next time, the wave builds. And the next time, the wave builds higher.

I just got done voting a short while ago. There may be some problems brewing, however.

If anyone in the Jackson County election area has any kind of problems with voting, or with not being an “active” voter, please contact me either through the comments here, or you can email me at JamesLeeASaB@yahoo.com.

Midterm Election Prediction

with one comment

Just to put it in pixels, so that when and if I’m right, I can smartly say “I told you so!”

I don’t claim to have any special insight, and don’t spend a lot of time crunching poll numbers and demographics of the various races throughout the nation. These numbers are pretty much out of my mind, and truth be told, maybe I’m just out of my mind anyway.

Others are predicting anywhere from 50, to over 100 flips, and very few are actually predicting the Senate to flip.

So, here they are:

House: Total of 78 Republican pickups. But, I would happily trade at least 30 of those pickups for a win by Jacob Turk in Mo-5.

Senate: I predict 9 Republican pickups. Probably a little overly optimistic, however, I strongly believe Christine O’Donnell is going to do much better than anyone thinks right now.

So, after tomorrow night, or after the weeks of recounts, litigation, and ACORN manipulation, when I am found to be totally off base, you can point at me and laugh.

Anyone else have any numbers they’d like to commit to now?
