(Older post) Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile…actually it’s been since the last election when I drowned my sorrows in macaroni and cheese for a solid three months.

WLS-AM is holding the Talk Star competition again and I’ve entered again and have been chosen in the top 10 again! Weird, right? I figure there are about 9 other nerds like me who are desperate to be on the radio which is why I keep getting into the top 10, but whatever the reason it’s happening again and I need your votes to get to the Top 5 and the finale live show on August 21.

This is from an email that’s been going around for some time, but never stops being thought-provoking. OR TRUE.
What is the difference between slaves on plantations and blacks who blindly vote for Democrats?
What does a slave-owner have to provide, free, for his slaves?
1. Free Housing.
2. Free Food.
3. Free Healthcare
4. A menial education sufficient to the task he requires the slave to perform.
What is the one thing a slave owner required of his slaves?
1. Unquestioning Loyalty.
What do the democrats always promise to provide, free, to blacks?
1. Free Housing.
2. Free Food.
3. Free healthcare
4. A free menial education, sufficient to get them to the voting booth.
What is the one thing Democrats require of their constituents?
1. Unquestioning Loyalty.
The only question black democrats have to ask themselves is:
Who’s your master now?
The Democrat Party survives because it keeps blacks poor and dependent on Democrat hand-outs to survive.
Democrats do something similar with gays: they keep us in check by scaring gays into believing Republicans are evil and want to kill us, so the only protection we have is to vote Democrat, Democrat, Democrat.
Democrats keep Hispanics under control by pushing Spanish as much as possible, so Hispanics never learn English and don’t progress as much in society.
Women are kept in line by Democrats though cultural wedge issues like abortion, where, once again, people are convinced to vote against their own economic best interests because Democrats create boogeymen to scare them into believing conservatives are evil and want to harm them or take away their rights.
If even one of the groups above could be reasoned with, and would actually see what the Democrat Party does to them, the fragile identity-bloc coalition that makes up the Democrat Paty would collapse on itself.
If you blindly vote Democrat, year after year, without ever asking what you REALLY get out of it, you are either a slave or a damn fool.
UPDATE: Thanks to Rush Limbaugh for reading this essay on the air today.
I’m sure it’s made tons of people mad, but all of it is true.
The Democrat Party really will collapse if only conservatives would eclipse the Cocktail Party GOP establishment and start depriving the Left of the means to keep blacks, gay, women, and other indentity-groups subervient in their respective reservations.
The Cocktail Party won’t do this because those in the highest floors of the establishment LIKE things the way they are. Those at the top on the Left and in the Cocktail Party work hard to keep each other in power.
It really is possible to make all of this come crashing down by speaking openly about the reality of what it truly means to be members of one of these Democrat identity-blocs.
A very happy Mother’s Day to all the Mama Grizzlies out there who make their families, and thus America, work on a daily basis.
Now is a great day to revisit Sarah Palin welcomes you into her home for a family first. This profile of Sarah Palin and her family ran in the May 9, 2010 issue of USA Weekend.
What we found during three harried, uncensored hours was a working mom who gives new meaning to the term “multitasking.” One minute Palin, 46, is making a baby bottle, checking the latest stream of e-mails on her BlackBerry and asking Piper, 9, if she wants a playdate; the next she’s dashing out the back door, taking off her dangle earrings and doing a live TV shot on, yes, health care reform for Fox News. And this is all during our interview.
Can you imagine the current occupant of the White House working this hard?
We at Buzzquarters believe it will be up to the Mama Grizzlies of America to save this country from the abyss in the next 36 months. Take-charge, take-no-prisoners conservatives like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann understand that in the real world, you can’t spend more than you make for year after year after year and not go bankrupt. They understand that leading a family, like leading a nation, requires integrity, grit, responsibility and courage…and a whole lotta heart.
Here’s to Mama Grizzlies everywhere. Feel free to use this thread to send you Mom a special message today, on Mother’s Day 2011.
Thanks Ann Coulter for the tweet…and for the focus on the need to take the word “polarizing” away from the Left
Thanks Ann Coulter for the Tweet today about our effort to take the word “polarizing” away from the Left, so the Media can no longer use it to hammer female politicians (from both sides of the aisle, actually, since the term has been used against Hillary Clinton as well as Governor Sarah Palin and other women the Left has targeted on various occasions).
By 2012, our goal on the Purple Team is to completely neuter the word “polarizing” so lazy journalists no longer use it as their default attack on women who won’t shut up and do whatever the Left wants them to do (which is usually to go away).
Knowing Ann Coulter’s watching, and rooting us on, gives us that much more energy to put into this.
Thanks everyone for your support with the poster I created. Palinpatriot is a very brave person to do what he did, in San Francisco, and it really is like going into the belly of the beast.
Kevin asked me if I’d send in a Ground Report about using creativity and art to irk the left. So, here goes…
First of all, a little about myself. My background is in event production, design, and marketing. So, I’m all about selling the experience. In my professional career I often take historic themes and turn them into event designs. One of the ways I do it is to take authentic documents and turn them into menus. For instance, an original menu from an Alcatraz prison guards’ Christmas dance becomes a dessert menu. I think you get the idea.
So, I’m used to tweaking things and making familiar images not like they seem.
With the poster I designed for Palinpatriot, I wanted to take a well known iconic image of Harvey Milk and make it all about Sarah. The look is the same so it may pass unnoticed for a while, (which is a good thing because once it’s discovered it won’t last long), also, once it is noticed it will really flip some people out. Since it’s a cheerful, upbeat image, we aren’t being hateful or vicious.
I believe that there is little that can be done to turn the true believers. However, in a city like SF there are a lot of people who are basically apolitical who just “go along to get along.” It’s those people, particularly the thinking ones with a sense of humor that we want to reach. At least that’s how I feel about it. There’s also the element of really annoying the true believers, which is a great way to get them to expose their hypocrisy.
My philosophy about this is that we need to keep things fun and upbeat. I don’t want to go down the “Hate Obama” road. It accomplishes nothing and only exposes us to being called hateful and vicious, with reason.
One of my major peeves about conservative art is that so much of it is unsophisticated and kind of hokey. There’s nothing wrong with the Walmart crowd and their enthusiasm for the red, white, and blue. But, in a lot of urban areas that kind of art is not taken seriously. We need to beat them at their own game by bringing more sophisticated, subtle, and less “in-your-face” patriotic art to the masses.
So, whatever we do art -wise should be fun and clever. If there are iconic images in your area, use them. Just twist them to suit your purposes. For many years the left has “owned” the art world, so let’s turn their “art” against them.
This is a perfect example. A popular image out here is the silhouette of Brian Wilson’s beard. If you don’t follow baseball, he is the SF Giant’s closer, with a beard that inspired the motto “Fear the Beard.” If we take that idea and twist it, we can get this:
Same concept, different meaning.
Same with the famous Che Guevara poster. Change the background to pink, add Sarah, and a little pink star.
These are just examples of the kinds of things you can do.
Remember, however, the big boogeyman in the world of art….copyrights! If you use someone else’s image and tweak it, (like the poster above), you can get away with it if it’s used for a “guerilla art attack.” Odds are, it won’t stay up long, and you can get away with it being “parody” as long as you don’t try to make any money off of it.
If you want to print T-shirts and sell them you must get written consent from the original artist to use their image for re-sale, and you will have to pay them for the rights. As a professional artist I have no problem with someone using one of my designs like Palinpatriot did. However, I wouldn’t like it if someone snatched my design and made money off of it. It’s theft, plain and simple, and as an artist I’d like to make sure that my image is used as I intended. If someone were to take one of my pro-Palin images and make it anti-Palin and also make a profit doing it….that would be adding insult to injury.
So, to you artists out there, remember to have fun. Keep whatever you create upbeat and positive, it will drive the angry left crazy.
For those of you who want to use artists’ images, be respectful. Don’t steal them for your own profit, and make sure you have their permission for whatever your “mission” is.
It’s time that conservative artists make a stand, and have fun doing it!
NBC’s Bay Area affiliate is covering the pro-Palin positive posters that PalinPatriot popped over the nasty anti-Palin posters the Left has been smearing the Governor with.
If you are a creative person, start thinking about posters you could create that showcase the Governor in a positive light. Make them something you would be proud to show the Governor and have her autograph…something Todd would like so much he’d want to get a copy of to frame and hang in their home.
Whatever you do when creating anything related to the Governor, please keep that in mind: always have it be something you would want her to be proud of, not have to defend or be embarrassed by.
As things heat up in the race against Obama, emotions will flare up and things are going to get wild and crazy, but if from Day One we use our creativity in a responsible and measured way, always remembering we need to help the Governor and put her in the best light possible, then our efforts will always be positive.
The Left will screech and howl, because we’re being effective, and they hate being beaten in creative realms because that’s supposed to be “their turf”.
Not anymore, folks.
GOLD ACTION ITEM: Chuck Schumer insists the three branches of Government are “House, Senate, and Presidency”. Match this up against him calling a conservative stupid at some point.
Here’s Chuck Schumer insisting the three branches of government are: “A House, a Senate, and a President”.
Can you recall any instances where Chuck Schumer ever called a conservative stupid in any way, made fun of the Tea Party, or otherwise insulted anyone’s intelligence?
Whenever Democrats do things like this, we need to put their gaffes and goofs side-by-side with their attacks on others, to show who the fool really is.
Any good examples that come to mind?
Senator Ron Johnson from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, soundly beat three-time incumbent Russ Feingold in November. You cannot overstate how unlikely it was that anyone could unseat Feingold, who was well respected on both sides of the aisle for being able to work with everyone and for being “Mavericky.” Our best hope to beat him a year ago was former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson and HHS Secretary under Bush, but I think his history would have made it extremely difficult to make any headway against Feingold. Ron’s success, and Feingold’s defeat, was extremely hard to take for my Democratic friends. The were actually down and depressed after the elections. I could relate, because it’s just how I felt in November of 2008.
Ron is the owner of a very profitable small plastics manufacturing company and for many years has been very active in the community, volunteering his time and money for many big community projects. He worked quietly behind the scenes, and few people know how really generous the Johnson’s were over the years. If you met him, you would not know how wealthy he is (or was, after self-funding much of his campaign) because he is humble, hard working, and does not live extravagantly.
I attribute his win over Feingold to many things—a very well-run campaign, a lot of money poured into relatively positive commercials that ran non-stop from May until November, shaking thousands of hands around the State, his laid back comfort in front of audiences and cameras, and yes, the fact that he was a relatively unknown. Also, as hard as they tried to find dirt on him, the media and Feingold found none. He’s about as clean a guy as they come, and he had to be, or else Feingold’s campaign would have found something and would have attacked him for it without mercy.
Ron’s main focus is smaller government, national debt reduction, maintaining and strengthening our status as THE economic powerhouse in the world, and freeing up the private sector from over-regulation that stifles economic growth. This is a true case of Mr Smith Goes to Washington….a regular guy with a good life, who could have lived very comfortably and happily in Oshkosh, who has been called upon to serve his country, and is jumping into it with both feet. He had never even been to Washington before this campaign, and his wife had never been there until November when they went there to find a place to live.
He seems to have made a bit of a splash already in Washington. Shortly after being sworn in, he traveled with several other Senators to Afghanistan to see the operations first hand. He has been assigned to the Senate appropriations and budget committees, along with homeland security and aging. It is rare for freshmen to land seats on the appropriations and budget committees, and a local political science professor claims that this suggests that he is already highly regarded by Republican leadership. This professor, who was extremely negative toward Johnson during the campaign, says that Johnson “seems to be one of the more reasonable persons among the people the tea party supported.”
He said throughout the campaign that he will never vote with his re-election in mind. I hope that he is able to maintain that ideal, and will be watching him closely.

The federal government does not have the authority to compel citizens to purchase things.
The unconstitutional and reckless law Democrats rammed through Congress in 2009, without many of them even reading it, is predicated on the federal government forcing people against their will to buy things.
As we’ve said here before time and again, if Obamacare is allowed to stand, then where do Democrats stop in terms of forcing people to buy things?
Do you honestly believe they wouldn’t use this precedent to require citizens purchase other goods from private companies…such as goods that are made by union shops so that the unions get richer, which means more contributions to the Democrat Party?
Hopefully, Vinson will rein in this madness today.
It won’t be the end of Obamacare, but it will be yet another rebuke that reaffirms the belief that, no, the federal government CANNOT force you to buy things against your will.
It was never given that ability, it does not have that ability, and it will never have that ability.
Awaiting Vinson’s take on this with great interest.
