Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________





As stated last night, I did go to the Dallas Tea Party.

Didn’t really stay all that long, though – and 25% of the time I was there was spent working on a meatball sub from Subway.

In fact, if you want a more comprehensive (not much more, but he’s at least got multimedia) idea of some of the happenings, go visit His Randomness™ over at Random Numbers.

For my part, I was pleased with the crowd and their enthusiasm.  And the couple of speakers I heard were okay.  Not awe-inspiring, but they didn’t embarrass themselves, either.

My only problem with the whole soirée was the emcee – Mark Davis, who can be heard on WBAP AM 820 weekdays from 8:30 – 11:00 and has a blog here.

Mark Davis, in my view, is not the conservative he claims to be.  He’s way too damned cordial to B. HUSSEIN!!!  Obambi and the absolute fools  who voted for him (be they black, white or polka dot) for my tastes:

Q: But how do you square that with the fact that this is not a presidency you wanted to see happen?

A: I’m sure I will spend ample time opposing various Obama administration initiatives. But I know tomorrow that I will see the faces of black people of a certain age who were not allowed to drink from the same water fountains that my parents did. While Barack Obama is not descended from slaves, his wife is. Her ancestors were chattel in the country she will now serve as First Lady. Only the coldest heart is unmoved by this.

Guess I’ve a cold-assed heart, then.  Because I am most certainly not  moved by any socialist’s ascendancy to the residence at 1600 Pennsylvania – I don’t give a royal shit what  color he is.  And add to that the circumstances surrounding the integrity of the election, plus  the fact that Jugears McHopenchange still  hasn’t proven his Constitutional fitness for the office, and the only thing it all moves me to do is retch.

Davis called this “indeed further evidence of the greatness and goodness that is America.”  I call it evidence that America’s been dumbed down to the point of damnfoolishness.

In addition to that, Davis isn’t as pro-life as he claims to be – if you listened to him during the Terri Schaivo outrage, you found out that he came down on the side of Mikey Shitstain when it came to the Republicans in Congress attempting to save Terri’s life.

If that’s  conservatism, make me a liberal.  If there was ever a time for an American congress to work to save the life of an American citizen, it was then.  If there was ever a time for Davis to be on the side of life, it was then – and he wussed out.

So anyway – it’s bad enough that the Tea Party had to put up with him as emcee.  Now plan on having a pair of long-lasting earmuffs – because Davis flat-out doesn’t know when to shut up.  Once he gets started, it’s tangent after tangent after aside after aside after…well, you get the idea.

But the Tea Parties themselves were extremely enjoyable.  Crunchie over at the Rott has a recap, as does the beautiful & talented Michelle and the aforementioned Random fella.

Now for the next step.  Where do we go from here?

    Mark Davis is one of those ‘old school’ conservatives who believe in silly things like ‘politeness’, ‘cordiality’, and ‘decorum’.

    Being polite to one’s enemies is a sign of strength, not of weakness. It takes a lot stronger man to be sympathetic to someone he wants to see fail than it does to let one’s true feelings show. I seem to remember reading in a book somewhere that we’re supposed to be kind to our enemies, even if they are our enemies.

    As to where we go from here? That’s a good question. The secession balloon has been floated, the third party bugaboo is still wandering around, and there’s always the popular ‘demonstrations as meaningless gestures’ option.

    Until Americans are willing to stop demanding that other people conform to their own ideals, and start actually living up to their own ideals, this Tea Party thing will remain a meaningless gesture, the adult equivalent of a well-mannered temper tantrum. Which, I do have to admit, is a lot better than what the Leftards do, which is ILL-tempered temper tantrums. Conservatives clean up after themselves, and can manage to hold demonstrations without breaking everything in sight.

    Being polite to one’s enemies is a sign of strength, not of weakness.

    Then be polite – “yeah, congrats, I guess” – and move the hell on.

    But since when do we need all the fawning?  “Ooooooh, he’s the first black president, lookit all the beautiful black faces of those who had to sit at the back of the bus blah blah blah…”  Ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

    Who gives a damn what  color he is, anyway?  Whatever happened to “not…on the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”, hm?

    I seem to remember reading in a book somewhere that we’re supposed to be kind to our enemies, even if they are our enemies.

    I seem to remember that that same book said something else.  Something about treating others as you would have them treat you.

    We’ve been treated.  It’s time to start treating.

    Which, I do have to admit, is a lot better than what the Leftards do, which is ILL-tempered temper tantrums. Conservatives clean up after themselves, and can manage to hold demonstrations without breaking everything in sight.

    I loved Crunchie’s favorite sign:  “We came unarmed…this time.”

    As for where we go from here…anyone know anyone living in Eddie Bernice Johnson’s district who has sufficient ideology and PR sense to run for Congress?
