Sheep in Idiot’s Clothing

I was recently searching for a picture on deviantART when a familiar sight appeared before my eyes. I saw picture after picture representing George W. Bush and his associates as Nazis, most making a direct correlation between Bush and Hitler. Doctored pictures showed Rumsfeld dressed in an SS uniform and so on.

The comparison of Bush to Hitler became popular during the 2004 election, although this was certainly not the first time the comparison was made. Every anti-war rally features protestors holding up signs with swastikas and other messages painting Bush as a Nazi. This continues to be a dominating message from almost anyone who doesn’t like Bush. No one ever thinks of anything new – they just repeat the same tired old trash.

Have these people ever seriously thought about what they are saying? There are two tremendous flaws in their idiotic logic.

First, the obvious. Hitler was responsible for killing millions of people simply because of their beliefs. Whether you agree with the war or not, how can you possibly compare Bush to this kind of homicidal maniac? You can’t say that Bush feels the same toward Muslims. If he did, Muslim-Americans would be in internment camps working their way toward certain death. Not only has Bush said that we are not at war with Muslims, but he has taken no action that would lead anyone to believe that way. The war is against terrorists and Bush has made that clear.

The second flaw is in the comparison to Hitler itself. The intent of the comparison is to make Bush look as evil as possible. By doing this, they are acknowledging that Hitler was an exceptionally evil person. To take Hitler out of power, we had to go to war against him. Using the anti-war crowd’s own logic, we should have let Hitler move forward unchallenged so that he could dominate the planet. War is bad! Period! So, they shun Bush for going to war, while at the same time unintentionally agreeing that Hitler had to be taken out of power through war. This makes them hypocrites.

The thing that makes it all so insane is that no one thinks for themselves. No one seems to be able to come up with an original thought.

Consider this to be part one. More ranting coming soon…

Tragedy Strikes Old South Virginia

Although I was recently thrilled at the emergence of marmots in the area, my enthusiasm began to wane last week. While driving down Old Virginia Street I came across a marmot in the road that had been hit by a car. While this is tragic enough by it’s own right, the situation worsened when a crow swooped down and began to pick at the carcass of the marmot. Fortunately, the crow took flight only a few seconds later as my truck approached the scene.

Not much later that day, I was again driving down the same road and spotted what appeared to be the same crow trying to dine on the marmot’s remains; however, when my truck came close enough to scare of the bird I quickly realized that it was a vulture, not a crow. I didn’t realize it until the bird started to fly away and it was obvious that the bird was far too large to be a crow. Additionally, the red on the head was a dead giveaway.

While I deeply regret the passing of one of our marmot friends, it’s also strangely interesting to see a vulture eating roadkill so far into town. That being said, I hope the marmot meat is poison to the vulture. I would love nothing more than to see a group of marmots picking away at the flesh of a dead vulture.

A Glorious State

The purpose of this blog is twofold. First, this blog allows me to express opinion that I dare not put on my family-friendly blog. Second, I plan to put together a fairly extensive collection of Nevada photographs. This includes scenery, structures, wildlife and more.

This is seemingly a poor combination – a nice resource mixed with my mindless ramblings; however, I am master of my domain (so to speak) and thus the ramblings will commence.

My main focus now is to get the stylesheets and links working to my satisfaction, so don’t expect much until that happens.
