Dr. Sanity On Paranoia And Projection
When I first started reading blogs, I spent a lot of time on "progressive" sites trying to understand their reasoning. As I kept hearing about the coming "Bush Theocracy" and how fascist our government was becoming, with any dispute being attacked or mocked hysterically, I stopped even reading them. I couldn't understand why discussion over disagreements was impossible.
Don't expect a rational response to such questions. Questions like that
only elicit further complicated conspiracy theories that are
constructed around all of the shibboleths of the left (many of which
have evolved into dogma since 9/11)--anti-capitalism; multilateralism;
multiculturalism; poverty; victims of US imperialism; anti-Americanism
etc. etc. If you put all the conspiracy theories together you will find
a concatenation of bizarre and often contradictory components that
should make any reasonably intelligent person roll on the floor with
hoots of laughter.
It would be reasonable to laugh if it weren't so pervasive in Democrat elected officials.
In the last six and a half years, there has not been a single action by
the Bush administration in the war on Islamofascism that has not been
deliberately undermined and actively opposed, spun, and exploited for

"win". Maybe it's because he isn't winning at all, but losing."
about being in a Vietnam-type quagmire--the Democrats, the political
left, and their media outlets are solidly stuck in that Vietnam era
mindset where they can't see anything but defeat and humiliation for
the US. They wish, anyway.
The Democrats and their liberal
left members maintain that it is Bush and his supporters that are
playing fast and loose with politics; and that they are using fear to
manipulate America so that they can establish a fascist/theocratic
We're still waiting for that imposition of theocracy by
the BushHitler. He better hurry since he only has a few months in

Sites are added to the Moronosphere and Gerbil Nation blogrolls by request. I got everyone on there who was there when they were made, so email me if you know of a new addition. Some of these are on the main blogroll as well and will remain duplicated.
The main blogroll is at my own discretion. I gratefully accept suggestions by email, but I don't do blogroll exchanges. If a site is there, it's because I personally recommend it. If it's one that is not updated often, check out the archives and you'll probably see why it's there. I will rarely remove a site from the main blogroll once it's there.

Therefore, comments other than my own do not reflect any viewpoint of mine, no matter how long it appears as I will likely remove comments that cross the line of decency. If a comment is removed, a notation that the comment was there will be inserted. Any questions or concerns about posts, comments, copyright, or other issues may be addressed by emailing me at "stashiu3 AT gmail DOT com" replacing the AT with @ and DOT with a period. If that's too complicated, maybe you shouldn't be on the internet without supervision. Just sayin'

I am a Psychiatric Nurse who retired from the Army after 24 years total service. I started out as a Private E-1, made Sergeant E-5 in 23 months, then went to nursing school and ROTC to get commissioned. I am interested in politics where I lean heavily conservative, movies, music, and books. Hopefully you will enjoy what you see and come back often.
