First they blew up a 1,700-year-old, 150-foot high Bamiyan statue of Buddha at the foot of the Hindu Kush mountains in central Afghanistan to advance the religion of Allah; next it’ll be 1,600-year-old

If the polls are correct, John McCain will win Arizona’s primary today and face the Democrat for another six-year term in the US Senate. Arizona Republicans don’t seem to care that McCain has consistently sided with left-wing Democrats to obstruct nearly every significant piece of conservative legislation advanced during his career.

There’s something about Arizona

By MrArbitrage

I’m receiving a great deal of positive emails from various sources like one sent today from Newsmax.com titled: Armey: Tea Party Movement Will Revolutionize GOP http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/dickarmeyteaparty/2010/08/21/id/368077?s=al&promo_code=A929-1.

That sounds great but it is difficult to get excited when one of the most contemptible senators in modern GOP history is presumably coasting into the nomination for another 6 year senate term.

It seems as though Arizonans enjoy being in the lime-light regardless of the reason. It doesn’t matter that their so-called “maverick” received that moniker as a result of being a left-winged appeaser who has obstructed conservatives in just about every significant piece of conservative legislation advanced during his career.

Since November 2008, conservatives nationwide have been on a mission to extricate the left-wing of our party as we have been reaping the devastating consequences of squandering an extremely rare Republican majority of the House, Senate and Executive branch. Conservatives nationwide have been on the warpath to accomplish this task –EXCEPT- for many of those calling themselves Republicans in Arizona.

All conservatives support the immigration bill but John McCain had nothing to do with that. Of course, being an election year, he is more than willing to capitalize on its popularity. I suppose we can chalk up this illegal immigration legislation to the blind squirrel factor (getting an acorn every once in a while). Congrats to Governor Jan Brewer for taking the lead.

It is mind boggling how so many people in that state can be so easily persuaded by this liberal. Just because they had some good times during the presidential campaign (which their guy lost pathetically), they think he is worthy of that senate seat. This is all in spite of the fact that McCain is the epitome of what went wrong with the GOP over the past two decades. This imposter has no more business calling himself a Republican than does Arlen Specter.

Frankly, I am embarrassed for Arizonans who are forcing this guy on the rest of us. They should be ashamed because while they bask in the attention they apparently crave, the rest of the country knows that no matter how many conservative coup d’états OTHER STATES achieve in these primaries – one of the chief obstructionists to the conservative movement is still going to be there to screw them over every step of the way. I really believe that if McCain was up for re-election in any other state right now he would be out on his rear where he belongs. Even Pennsylvania had enough sense to see the damage they had done by tolerating his nonsense.

So J.D. Hayworth made an endorsement on an infomercial encouraging people to buy a program to help them utilize money from government programs? The fact that this “charge” is the best the McCain camp could come up with says a great deal. How many times has McCain harped on this ridiculous point? Most of those programs J.D. was referencing probably had the legislative support of John McCain during all of the years he was stabbing conservatives in the back. McCain probably co-sponsored them.

To be fair, you have to look at what the two men have actually helped to promulgatewhen they were in office, not what TV commercials they did years afterward. By the way, where are all of the people who could rightfully be making fun of Fred Thompson for hocking reverse mortgages?

One guy (Hayworth) endorsed a guide or program that would help people to access grants that already existed. The other (McCain) spent an entire career jumping on almost every opportunity to sell out conservatives – because he couldn’t resist the media plaudits that accompanied his legislative treachery.

Look at the fruits people. Look at all of the years he screwed us to the wall. Look at the left-winged pro-gay marriage promoting antics of his wife and his daughter. They are all cut from the same cloth and they should all be ashamed to claim the title of Republican much less conservative – as should any voter devoid of the sensibilities to see this obvious fact.

Imagine a world of no more privacy. Where your every purchase is monitored and recorded in a database, and your every belonging is numbered. Where someone … has a record of everything you have ever bought, of everything you have ever owned, of every item of clothing in your closet, every pair of shoes. … We may be standing on the brink of that terrifying world if global corporations and government agencies have their way.”Katherine Albrecht  

School officials in New Canaan, Connecticut, are looking into testing radio-frequency identification (RFID), a.k.a. spy chips, to track people on campus.

According to district transportation coordinator Roy Walder, the RFID technology would help to locate people during an emergency or keep tabs on the comings and goings of people on school grounds.

Right now school board members are just considering the idea and have not yet agreed to partnership in the test program with SecureRF Corporation, the company that makes the RFID devices.

“A constantly experimental attitude toward everything-that’s all we need.”Walden Two

Albeit a different frequency, RFID chips are being used on children’s clothing, back packs, and student IDs in primary schools in Osaka, Japan. Also some schools in England are using RFID chips in school uniforms and ID cards.

Oceania! Oceania! Oceania, ’tis for thee!

Every deed, every thought, ’tis for thee!

Every deed, every thought, ’tis for thee!

Every deed, every thought, ’tis for thee!

If the Board decides to incorporate the test program, participation would be voluntary and parents would have to agree to allow their children to participate.

When the children are tardy or even one-minute late to class, Big Brother will know. He will be watching; he will be always watching.

From the Age of Big Brother, from the Age of the Thought Police, from a dead man… greetings.”—from the diary of Winston Smith
