Stark, Another Unhinged Liberal

Democrat California Representative, Pete Stark has joined the ranks of his fellow liberal democrats (Dick Durbin, John Kerry, to name a few,) in disparaging our military, the war in Iraq, and President Bush.

The topic of conversation on the House Floor was about President Bush's veto of the proposed SCHIP bill. Stark's comment is so typical of liberal's attempts to address any topic. They can't resist working some anti-Bush, anti-American statement into whatever they are commenting on.

Commenters on the conservative web site: "Town Hall", refer to the intense, obsessive, hatred of President Bush on the part of liberals as, Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS).

Stark's unhinged statement on the House Floor the other day is probably the most intense display of BDS by a liberal to date. Here is what Stark babbled when it was his turn to speak:

“I, uh, yield myself two minutes, uh. Madame Speaker, uh, I first of all, I’m just amazed that they can’t figure out the Republicans are worried that we can’t pay uh for insuring an additional ten million children they sure don’t care about finding two hundred billion dollars to fight the illegal war in Iraq. Where are you going to get that money? Are you going to tell us lies? Like you are telling us today? Is that how you are going to fund the war? You don't have money to fund the war or children. But you're going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president's amusement.”

He then, turned his attention to the topic at hand and went on the usual liberal misinformation campaign to suggest that President Bush was against helping poor children with obtaining insurance.

But, poor Stark, being so badly infected with BDS just couldn't resist one more cheap, pot shot at President Bush:

"...But the President Bush’s statements about children’s health shouldn’t be taken any more seriously than his lies about the war in Iraq. The truth is that Bush just likes to blow things up in Iraq, in the United States, and in Congress."

What is it with these liberal Democrats? How can someone be so full of hatred for Bush that they can't offer their constituents anything more than non-stop, immature, displays of hatred for our nation's President. Their hatred is apparently so deep, and all encompassing, that it leads them to make treasonous, anti-American statements about Bush, the war in Iraq, and even against our soldiers who are fighting that very war.

Democrat Senator Dick Durbin tried to compare our troops in 2005, with Nazis.

Democrat Senator John Kerry made this (it's the video underneath the headline: "U.S. troops terrorize Iraqi citizens") anti-troop remark:

“…and there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night terrorizing kids, and children, uh, uh, uh, you know, women breaking sort of the customs of, the, of, of, of, of , of, of historical customs, religious customs, whether you like it or not. Iraqis should be doing that.”

Then he also made the snide remark implying that if you were too stupid to go to college then, you wind up a soldier fighting in Iraq. A comment that he later was forced to apologize for after he received much deserved ridicule and blowback.

It seems, "decorated war Veteran", John Kerry forgot that officers have to have college degrees in order to be officers in the first place. He also displayed his ignorance regarding the fact that many enlisted troops also have college degrees, or obtain them during their enlistment. Is this ignorance on Kerry's part or, hatred for his own nation's troops? Either way it's a good thing he never became Commander in Chief.

Senate Majority leader, Democrat Harry Reid who declared the war in Iraq lost, this past April (if that isn't demoralizing to the troops, blatantly false, and aiding and abetting the enemy, I don't know what is) had the nerve to accuse conservative talk radio host, Rush Limbaugh as going over the top with his "phony soldier" comment. You can download the letter that Reid sent to the CEO of Clear Channel Communications, (the company who broadcasts Rush Limbaugh's syndicated radio talk show), to try and get Rush fired here.

Not only was Reid guilty of hypocrisy, (where was his censure of other Democrats and their anti-troop statements, let alone his own self-censure?), but, also, it is really an egregious abuse of power when a congressman uses his office to harass an ordinary citizen that he is supposed to serve, not attempt to slander.

Of course, Rush has gotten the last laugh in this one by auctioning off the letter from Reid and donating the profits to an organization to help the children of fallen marines and firefighters. Rush is even matching the final bid to add to the contribution. Not only was Rush's "phony soldier" remark deliberately taken out of context by the dubious "Media Matters" and Harry Reid, but, the only one guilty of being anti-military in the end is Harry Reid, not Rush.

Last week, Nancy Pelousi, Democrat, Speaker of the House pushed for a bill declaring the Turkish Ottoman Empire guilty of genocide against Armenians between 1915 and 1923.
The timing of this bill threatens to sever the ties we have with Turkey, who is an invaluable ally in the War on Terror, providing us supply access to troops in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and possibly opening up another front into the War in Iraq, namely, Turkish military forces invading the Kurds in northern Iraq.

Now, either this is a deliberate move on Pelousi's part to sabotage the War in Iraq, or ignorance on her part because she failed to think through the ramifications of such a bill at such a time. I suspect it is the former that drives Pelousi. But, either way, she is clearly not a good person to be in the position of leadership that she currently holds.

If one took the time, one could find quote after quote after quote since 2000 from Democrats showing nothing but: whining over Bush's election victories, hatred for Bush, anti-Americanism, anti-US troops etc. Couple those quotes with the Democrat's half hearted attempts to "cut and run" from a war that they approved of and voted for, (so much for Stark's lie about an "illegal war"), and their attempts to sabotage the war via this new charge against our ally Turkey, it just begs the question: why would any informed, serious US citizen ever vote for the Democrats ever again? They don't represent the American soldier or citizen. They are just power hungry. Couple this lust for power with their obsessive BDS, and it becomes abundantly clear that a vote for a Democrat is a vote against any good direction for this country.

That is, unless you are for race baiting, political correctness, class warfare, limited freedom of speech and limited freedom of religion, and most of all, a move towards turning this Democratic Republic into a Socialist Democracy in line with the rest of the failed Socialist Democracies of Western Europe.

As it has been said several times before, this ain't your grandfather's Democrat Party. It ain't my party any more either. I used to be a Democrat. But, I left that party years ago. And I am very glad that I did. Looking back, especially since 2000, I would have very little, if anything, to be proud of, and everything to be ashamed of, if I hadn't left.

I am in no way a staunch Republican, but there is no way I would ever return to support the Democrat party unless, by some miracle, it weeded out Pelousi, Kerry, Durbin, Reid, Murtha and the rest of the liberals and embraced a conservative platform. If that were to happen, I would leave the Republican Party in a heartbeat!

Stark ended up helping Bush more than hurting Bush. Happily, I must say. Amy
