The Terrorists Have Won, But I'm Making The Demands

Tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1992. Crystal-clear colas and Nirvana CDs all around!

But first, I have some political demands:

That Karl Rove be turned over forthwith to the nearest Democratic Party or liberal organization office for trial. The charge? Being a major prick who’s done more than any other hominid in turning American political discourse into static and smear. For starters.

That Rick Santorum (formerly R-PA) be forced to march in the next scheduled gay pride parade, dressed as a stem cell.

That those who support a gay marriage ban be forced to give specifics about why marriage needs to be “protected,” and how an amendment will do that, or shut up forever.

That Bush-supporting, soon-to-be-divorced Britney Spears be like totally sent to fight in Iraq and stuff.

That House Majority Dems sign into law the official amending of the words “Republican” and “conservative” to “Republicant” and “consternative” (or “consterno,” in Bogswork Orange lingo), respectively. The time for House Bill 069-069, aka “The Bogs Bill,” has come.

If none of those happen, I will settle for these:

That Pat Roberts’ (R-KS)
long-delayed report on pre-Iraq War intelligence be completed and released by year’s end. Grab a Starbuck’s there Paddy, and order in some Chinese, because you won't be just coasting along anymore. Get to it, beyotch.

That House Majority Dems clean house by enacting tough anti-corruption rules with real consequences that will be enforced in a nonpartisan manner. And do it ASAP.

That, in tandem with the previous demand, House Majority Dems enact the
lobbying rules I have previously set forth. (Honestly, they should hire me as a policy advisor. A real ideas man, I have the pate of a James Carville, without the eccentricity. And without the neo-cunt partner.)

That recent efforts to compel the president to appoint only demonstrably qualified candidates for various offices be revived.

That recent efforts to raise the federal minimum wage be revived, but with the “permanent tax cuts for the rich” provision stripped out. I mean, come on.

I’d say our elected officials have their work cut out for them. Let’s start checking some action items off this list, shall we?

PS: A former classmate of mine, a Democrat and Iraq War hero, was elected to the Florida House on Tuesday. Nice job!

VETO NEXT!

Pete Bogs said...

hell - yup, I am sure our obstructionist president will whip out the veto... it's his last line of defense against good government...

as you should note, I called for a change in the status quo in DC here... it's hard to imagine a reasonable person of any party not agreeing with that... I plan to hold my own party to account, despite the excuse-making others have done for their own parties in recent years...

Hellpig said...

with only one veto thus far he is far from a obstructioniist,and you will be very busy because the Dems have a lot of IOU's to be paid...I kinda see the new utopia you are talking about when a Terrorist CAIR member gets elected to congress in Minnisota..At least we will see if the Dems have what it takes to protect America,all news from abroad indicates Terrorists are elated with the election results....anyways congrats on your Victory Bogs...make it count the world is watching

i roll with this because it is the natural result of not staying true to ideals. they were far from conservative by growing the government spending spending spending. didnt have the courage to actually shock and awe in irak and do it right from the get go. and the biggest failure of all -illegal immigration. prepare yourself for blanket amnesty. you'll need all that dough you make off your houses hell, to pay for services to absorb the influx. this gang forgot what is conservatism which now has a home in the libertarian party which has no prayer.

reagan must be spinning in his grave.

the lobbying rules is an idea we can all support bogs. and britney's new career.

guess nobody has a problem with the diebolds now. one thing you arent going to see from dogs like me who voted against pelosi and company is a bunch of whinning, sour grapes and conspiracy theories.


/grrr

Hellpig said...

I will admit I am a right leaning independant,and the border issue is my biggest concern then terrorism then the war,Dawg it will be nice to be on offence for awhile(2 YEARS)defence was getting old,and I am glad to see Rummy gone as well and hopefully the lobbying will be corrected and minimum wages will go up...Just imagine if the other 60% of the right showed up to vote in the midterms I agree this is a 2 year punishment to the Conservatives for losing the base.

Now for '08 I am tossed between
McCain or Guiliano my ultimate fav would be Tancredo but I doubt he will get the Nom.

Pete Bogs said...

hell - the obstructionism came in the form of blocking, stalling or refusing to cooperate with the many, many investigations it was unfortunately necessary to launch against Bush, his actions and his people... also in the form of refusing to release information on a number of appointees who were up for a vote... his one veto barely figures in...

you list some good choices for president in '08... I have said many times in this blog that the Republicant Party was foolish for picking Bush over McCain... fyi, I would have voted for someone like McCain... liberal me... you should hate Rove as much as I do for pushing Bush on us...

I'm probably the only person who remembers that Guiliani had his own little infidelity scandal going when 9/11 happened... everyone forgot after that... of course, I don't let that influence... (aunt b needs to read this) a lot of the northern Republicants - like Guiliani and Bloomberg - are actually pretty progressive...

k9 - you are right to be disillusioned... you can bet that, if Democrats don't improve things, and if that is not due to obstructionism from the other side, I won't support them... I was an independent once, and I could be again... when Rangel started talking about a draft, for example, I wrote him and told him as much...

Hellpig said...

I was under the impression infidelity was a good thing to Libs? anyhow anyone who can clean up NY can't be all bad even with a little tail on the side at least it wasn't an intern.

One positive thing IMO is the defeat of the anti-semite/socialist Ned Lamont I am so glad he had the KOS kiss of death and wasted 30 million of his own ill gotten cash......

Pete Bogs said...

hell - he supposedly did clean up NY... less garbage, more politeness... but I draw the line at closing the strip clubs! that was brutal...

Peaches said...

Thank you thank you ..you have given me hope again... I have been watching with baited breath for your election results...thank you!!
Pity Rumsfeld got off so lightly... 'crimes against humanity' or 'crimes against making US a target for hatred and fear even from their allies' would be better.

Cheers...
Drinks are on me!!!!

Jack K. said...

Sic 'em, Nancy!!!

Hellpig said...

Peaches you are an IDIOT,and I don't drink KOOL-AID

Pete Bogs said...

hell - no personal attacks on my guests, please...

Hellpig said...

Wasn't personal Bogs her statement was truly ignorant,but this is coming from a person whose society allows imams to preach rape tolerance.I have no pity for such a society or tolerance for that matter.

Hellpig said...

And Bogs you allow the troll to attack me personally just about everytime he posts,so either ban me or delete me,because I also don't like double standards.And I will become your troll as well,we both know I am much better at it.

Bird said...

honestly pig - can't you argue rationally? critically? with intellect?

your claim is essentially that peaches is an idiot because you disagree with her/his statement.

and you complain about a society that "allows" someone to preach rape tolerance. ummm... doesn't our society allow the same thing? that little pesky thing called free speech. of course, technically, australia doesn't have that prinicple enshrined in law or myth.

i am delighted the dems own the house and senate. they aren't my party, but i am hopeful they'll pull themselves together and keep that pendulum swinging from the far right back to center.

and besides, there's A WOMAN just two heartbeats away from the presidency. hahahahahahahahahahaha! i hope bush loads up on pretzels and maybe cheney's ticker will give out completely.

one can dream.

Hellpig said...

Bird you are clueless as well,and in America there are consequences for the speech you preach,unlike the dhimmi AU,so go about your own business

flap/flap be gone remember we hunt birds in the northwest.

Pete Bogs said...

hell - you should be flattered that I don't treat your comments the same way I treat sanford's... I take yours seriously... sanford is fucking with us most of the time...

I am merely saying attack people indirectly, by attacking their views... maybe it's the same thing, but I see a difference... I will continue to allow that... personal attacks on me are also tolerated to an extent, just not on guests... no reason to go to Trolltown here...

i wouldn't presume to speak for hell, but with regard to peaches comment, i have to throw in with the pig. this notion that the administation has created the climate of hatred against the USA fails to recognize the LONG trail of islamic attacks againt the WEST not just us.

ive said it a million times. if you read what fundeislam says you will find that liberalism and tolerance is the one thing they do not respect. thats why they wanted the dems to win and of course they got appeased. they knew W would stay in there and kill as many as he could. not quickly enough for my taste, but its all academic now. we might as well have the joker of spain as our leader.

our media became a TOOL of propaganda. a constant negative drumbeat, an inability to appreciate our virtues as a country, and the most bias pro demoncrat spin i have ever seen. wonder if the USA can ever again win any conflict with so many willing haters on the inside to grease the path for the ones who said straight up what their agenda is.

peaches is lucky that at least her PM isnt dhimmi (yet)

boyed. you cant be seriously wishing death on my master!!! grrr!!!

/howl

Pete Bogs said...

k9 - I meant to respond to hell's CAIR comment above... as much as I like to criticize Islamists, I do acknowledge that not all Muslims are terrorists... not everyone shares my view...

Islamists do despise liberalism, but then again, fundies of many religions do... like our Religious Right here at home... hence, their demonization of the word "liberal"

on the press' role, I don't think it's their place to be positive or negative... they're not there to make anyone happy, but to convey important information in a factual manner... granted, they seldom do that, but we shouldn't forget what their role really is... I think they need to change their beat to something funkier...

common tern said...

Bird can no longer participate in this discussion. The Secret Service picked her up and turned her over to the CIA. The CIA is holding her in an un-named location, indefinately, without charges, until she coughs up the names of her cell members.

I've warned her for years this might happen. No doubt her most public glee over the terrorists winning combined with that pretzel comment did her in. But she's only getting what she deserves, damn bitch of a bird!

Since she was a tiny ball of fluff, I knew she would fall in with the wrong crowd. And I blame you Bogs! You're probably one of her terrorist cell members, for what else can a Democratic political operative be? I hope the CIA is ringing your doorbell right now!

K9 said...

/bark bark bark

hell's right bogs! Keith Ellison was given financial support from CAIR, and has ties to the nation of islam. (vetted at judicial watch) also: ellison is on record as defending the leader of a gang and known cop killer. Ellison also supports and demands freedom for another convicted cop-killer named Assata Shakur, who lives in Cuba and remains on the FBI’s most wanted list.

drinking at the font of PC, minnesota, eh?

you know, we'll just have to go the hard way. a least there will be clarity then.

/grrr

Pete Bogs said...

tern, tern, tern - I have been granted immunity from prosecution for my crimes as a Democratic operative... I made a little "arrangement" with the feds...

k9 - had Ellison been running for office here, I would have looked into his background... I was just speaking in general about Muslims... too bad he is reinforcing the stereotype...

Hellpig said...

Thanks again Dawg you always have my back,I just don't want to take the time to articulate my position or perceptions of topics it is and always has been easier to just go straight for the jugular with a one liner,now I can dig up all the links and proof to substantiate my positions I have done so numerous times but it always goes on deft ears when I am talking to a person who just doesn't get it.

Here is something I read from the Canadian Freepress today Nancy Pelosi is a member of the American Socialist Party

Nancy the Red

And if Boyd is in custody I will be getting a call from the CIA very soon I am the independent interrogator for the department they use me because I don't give a shit about PC and I am very effective in extracting information from dissidents

Pete Bogs said...

hell - Nancy may be a socialist, but don't look for a Soviet-style government here anytime soon...

Hellpig said...

I hope you are right Bogs,her base from Nan Francisco are the extreme left and they will put their far left lunatic pressure on her,the lack of morals and civility among this group is the deterioration of the American society as we know it.

Hellpig said...

Bogs I am up and running again,need to put my own touches on it with a little html mods but I am up...it came to me like a beacon light in the fog hope you and your base stop by although it will still be a HELLPIG blog so I know it won't appeal to your guests but I am up and running

Pete Bogs said...

hell - I will be sure to stop by the old sty soon...

Hellpig said...

looking forward to the balance as to not let me stray to far right
