Read all about my trip to NYC for The Republican Convention, including the epic story
October 3, 2004.
Hey what are you guys doing up so early? OK well, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and sit down to some Sunday morning reading.
First up is a forward to a book on Thoreau, by Howard Zinn.
Here's one that was written by my good friend Roland, The Photographer, from The Bartcop Pokerfests.
Thank God for The Liberals
Subject: A Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican
Joe gets up at 6:00 AM to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot with good, clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised. All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan. Because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares his Morning breakfast-- bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry.
Joe takes his morning shower, reaching for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount that is contains because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and the breakdown of its contents. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.
Joe begins his workday; he has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought (and many died) for these working standards. Joe's employer meets these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employees to call the union or a government Labor and Safety agency. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get worker's compensation or an unemployment check because some liberal didn't think he should loose his home to temporary misfortune.
It's noontime. Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.
Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dads; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification (those rural Republican's would still be sitting in the dark).
Joe is happy to see his dad, who is now retired. Joe's dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to. His dad?s medical problems are taken care of by Medicare because some bleeding-hearts didn?t believe that ?sick? and ?old? should be synonymous.
After his visit with dad, Joe gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show. the host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn't tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against keeping every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day. Joe agrees, We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives. After all, I'm a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have." In the years to come, Joe's life will change dramatically. The U.S. dollar will be devalued as a result of our huge deficit, our living standards demolished, our standing with the world diminished and our social security gone...all because "some" conservative republican made sure he could take care of himself and his buddies.
From William Hare, Author of The Struggle for The Holy Land.
I am posting herewith my spin on events from last night that I wrote this morning. I am sending the one article by attachment. The other is available on your link to the Media Snake Oil series. It relates to a confirmation of what I wrote in the first article. I told people just what you wrote in your interesting piece on the event.[See my Debate Review below} You were right. Unless Kerry got him down on the ground and kicked Bush's skull in they would say that he did fine. Even then, they would try to assure us that what we saw with Bush lying on the ground was a mirage planted by Kerry dirty tricksters and rotten Communists and that nobody should believe what they thought they saw� It is going just the way I thought, with these jokers trying to convince people that what they think they saw was an illusion. "Listen to us, we can tell you better," is their refrain.
Check out Mr. Hare's book, and his latest article at Political Strategy.
Heres how Fox News handled the spin, the day after

Part 2: October 3, 2004
Here's a couple of stories that show that even if Kerry is winning, he still could lose. They're doing everything they can in Florida to disenfranchise anyone
who might be against Bush. They're doing it on other states where the Republicans know they may be on the ropes, but like the lying, cheating, dishonorable, no values, people.
These hypocritical, sub humans are they are trying to cheat their way into another 4 years on the gravy train. They need to have enough money to buy their girlfriends enough
houses, cars, and jewelery, to keep them around long enough for a little more punnanni, while they figure out the cheapest possible way to dump their latest wife. These guys know they're not getting it based on looks, or personality.
This first story comes all the way from Glasgow Scotland.
