Hey
Any of you Republican hccs wanna take this on? I would, but I'm Libertarian so I don't think it's my battle. I just don't see the logic of "how could anyone of modest means possibly vote Republican?" Honestly, how could anyone of modest means vote DEMOCRAT, unless they were hoping for a handout? Those of us who don't have much need to be especially worried about how much of our paycheck Uncle Sam is stealing, right? That's my thought, anyway.

Be warned this girl gets emotional right off the bat, has no debate skills and tends to delete comments if she can't make her point. Still, I hate to let something that obvious go.

Cthulu '04 - Why vote for the LESSER evil?

The election is today. Who do you vote for?

Bush/Rumsfeld
43(62.3%)
Kerry/Edwards
11(15.9%)
H. Clinton/Clark
1(1.4%)
third party
14(20.3%)


Originally I meant to post this poll with Bush and the 8 Democratic candidates, bc it seems to me (i.e. correct me if I'm wrong) that the hcc consensus doesn't love Bush, but I have yet to come across another candidate who scares me less. But work got in the way and the field has been narrowed quite a bit. Feel free to comment on who you might've voted for had the Democrats nominated them.

For me, voting in New York State as a Republican is throwing my vote away, so I suppose, if I get around to registering, I'll be considering the third parties.

*Yes, I recognize running mates haven't been announced yet - I thought I'd be creative.
**I dare someone to find bias in the poll question.

"The dog? You are named after the dog?"
Brian Tiemann posted a nice (long) rant about the public outcry against John Rhys-Davies for saying he rather likes the culture he was raised in. While I don't think Hollywood actors should have their political opinions widely aped merely bc they are famous, I happen to think he's saying something worthwhile and since his soapbox is bigger than mine...

Hey there!
Hi everyone! My names Melissa, I'm a Junior at Trinity University, and the Director of Public Relations for our College Republicans organization! I'm so excited to see there are some LJ communities for fine conservative chikas such as ourselves, and I look forward to interacting with all of you!

What are your favorite sources to get news stories?

Poll #196244 Kooba

Should Congress ease restrictions on travel to Cuba?

Yes.
17(73.9%)
No.
6(26.1%)


It's questions like this that occasionally get me weird results on "Who should you vote for?" online quizzes.

As far as I can tell, the pro-travel arguments are increased trade and showing the Cubans the joys of capitalism so they will revolt. The anti- argument is don't prop up the dictator (and do whatever the Cuban-Americans in Fl want so you can get votes in Nov'04, if you're Shrub).

Explosive cartoon
In case anyone from the hcc community hasn't seen this one yet... Calvin and explosives.

Or maybe this is the beginning of Tyler Durden.

A little math about the quagmire that is Iraq.

(Sorry for not cutting and pasting more into this post. Apologies as well to those who already saw this.)

Kids and guns
schrathe usually has great posts, but I thought this one about guns and his nephew was particularly of interest to the hcc community. If nothing else, it typifies what I think of as the hcc approach to raising children.

Shedding Labels
I thought Bill Whittle's article this morning hit the nail on the head as far as the underlying difference between the HCC way of thinking and those who think differently:

The point is this: labels don’t really work. As one of my readers brilliantly pointed out in my comments section, it’s not like the vast sensible middle of the nation is divided into Red and Blue camps, Republicans vs. Democrats, Liberals vs. Conservatives, Left vs. Right. Today’s politics are more like a Rubik’s cube, where someone you may stand shoulder-to-shoulder with on one subject, can become, with a simple twist of the issues, a bitter opponent in some other fight...

I contend that there is a single litmus that does indeed separate the nation and the world into two opposing camps, and that when you examine where people will fall on the countless issues that affect our society, this alone is the indicator that will tell you how they will respond.

The indicator is Responsibility.


Of course I'll be the first to argue that his arguments are a little heavy-handed and his article is much too long, but hey, it's his website.

I've been arguing for some time that people no longer taking responsibility is one of the reasons our civilization is failing. I'm not sure if it's a symptom or a cause.

Powell in '04?
Over lunch, I had a discussion with a fellow conservative chick about Colin Powell. The gist of it was determining whether we'd vote for him for President, with the fundamental issue being, is the State Dept's record over the past 3 years a case of "good cop, bad cop" roleplaying or is it truly reflective of his personal views.

Anyhow, after lunch, I got into an argument with a non-LMI, who argued that Powell would be assassinated long before he could have an effect. I argued that just bc someone is extremely racist does not mean s/he will go out and take action, particularly on this scale. My friend pointed to John Wilkes Booth. I'd like to believe we live in a less aggravated time.

So the three points I offer to the HCC community are as follows:

1. Powell for President. Discuss.
2. JWB - anyone remember what exactly was his motivation? I thought it was bc he was an unemployed bad actor.
3. Is racism such a large issue that someone would plan an assassination over it? (where plan means plan enough to make a valid attempt)

Oh, and PS - Welcome!
