Random Thoughts for 2-3-2008

I am going to just make some points that have been on my mind.

-Love. There is not near enough of it in the world. Anymore, most of us spend our lives in a funk of cynicism, sarcasm, and vilitry towards people around us, even our closest friends and family. We are quick to insult, put-down, or try to cheapen everyone we see. He have such a disdain for the world that we constantly impede success in life and in relationships. We need more love in the world.

-IMAGE. This kind of goes hand in hand with the first point on love. Everyone is so concerned with their own image. We let the slightest thing become an attack on that image. We are also quick to attack someone else for not fitting into a preconceived notion of what image a person should reflect. Take Jennifer Love Hewitt a few months ago. She was with her fiance celebrating her engagement to that fiance. The world went crazy with picture of her in a two-piece swimsuit. While the swimsuit was not flattering, I completely disagree with the verdict by many people that she was/is fat. Then, last year, when Jordin Sparks won American Idol, people ripped her for not being a toothpick. I think those two women are prime examples of the images little girls need to see. That is how a woman should look.

If your knee is bigger than your thigh, you are TOO SMALL. If your ribs can stick out more than your cleavage, you ARE UNHEALTHY and TOO SMALL!! I am so tired of the negative images being put out there that if a girl doesn't have a dress size in single digits, then she is too big.

-Superbowl 42. This game was very similar to the 2006 National Championship game between the Texas Longhorns and the USC Trojans. All you heard during the build up was how great the Patriots were. How their perfect season was inevitable. How much more talented they were. How this game could get ugly. Instead, we got a classic game where the underdog thumbed their collective nose at the pundits and won the game they weren't supposed to.

I am happy for the local boy, Ahmad Bradshaw, a graduate of nearby Graham High School. Other than that, I had no dog in this fight and really had no preference on who won. It was, however, an exciting game to watch. Little Eli just became a true quarterback tonight.

-You Decide 2008. What was Florida thinking? John McCain is as much a Conservative Republican as Rolls Royce is a cheap car. The media is touting McCain because they know that he is beatable in a national election. Are we really ready for a president with a comb-over?

Seriously, though. I am so disappointed that Fred Thompson dropped out. I think the one error he made was getting in the race so late. I do hope that Fred is a top choice for Vice President once the nomination is made. I am definitely for Mitt Romney for our nominee. He can handle the economy and with the help of some good people, can handle the war once he takes office.

What I am so fearful of is the Socialist Society we will get if we experience the tragedy of a Clinton or Obama victory this year. Obama is very scary. Clinton is scary. The things that they are promising are as possible as the promises made by Joe Isuzu in the 1980's. The sad fact is most of the voting public only sees the 5 second soundbites and clips of the promises. They all sound so great, but the reality is none of it can truly happen if we are going to stay a strong, independent, safe, financially secure, sovereign nation.

Well, I guess I will end these random thoughts here. Have a good one!

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
