Rants -- September 11, 2008

Welcome to the September 13, 2008 edition of Rants. It's a big one, due to the fact that I haven't posted one of these since August 20...I apologize for that. There are some really good rants in here, too. So, pull up a chair, get a beverage, and have fun.

NotYourDaddy presents What Have Progressives Got Against Progress? posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "Liberals don’t want to be called liberal anymore. They prefer to be referred to as “progressive.” Why are they suddenly ashamed of the word liberal? Why do they feel the need to redefine themselves as something else? And why have they chosen the singularly inappropriate term “progressive” to describe themselves? It almost seems as if they’re begging the question."

NotYourDaddy presents Sticks and Stones and All That posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "Since when is it racist to disagree with a black person? The term “racist” used to be reserved for true bigots, like the KKK or the Aryan Nations, — really despicable people.

NotYourDaddy presents Ron Paul's Revenge posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "Like a spoiled child, if Ron Paul can’t be the nominee, he’ll take his marbles and go hold his own party somewhere else, doing his best to create a distraction from the RNC, siphon off as many votes as he can, and undermine the very party of which he claims to be a member."
