I have 2 questions about this year's CPAC

1. Why did they invite Romney (who was a 1-term governor and the loser of 2 presidential bids) to speak, but they haven't invited Bush ll (who was a governor, but was also their most recent candidate to "win" the presidency)?

2. Why is there a CPAC, but no LPAC (liberal political action conference)?

Radio Daze

Last year, a young man called in to a radio station with a problem. He’d recently attended a bachelor party, he said, and a friend of the groom-to-be, clueless of the unwritten etiquette of maledom, brought his girlfriend along, derailing what was supposed to be a weekend of gambling, girls, and general debauchery. The caller told his story with passion and verve, and then asked the station’s listeners for their advice on how to treat his clueless pal.

Or at least he would have, had this been a real conversation. The young man—who asked to remain nameless in order to protect his chances for future employment—was an actor, and the staged call an audition. A short while later, he received the following email: “Thank you for auditioning for Premiere On Call,” it said. “Your audition was great! We’d like to invite you to join our official roster of ‘ready-to-work’ actors.” The job, the email indicated, paid $40 an hour, with one hour guaranteed per day.

Message to today's Right-Wing: stop calling yourselves conservatives

Let's get something straight here. The definition of the word "conserve" is to protect something (especially an environmentally or culturally important place or thing) from harm or destruction. However, from what those on the Right have shown us, they are out to essentially destroy and dismantle everything that has helped out so many Americans. Whether it is Social Security, affordable health care (aka. Obamacare), welfare, food stamps, anti-discrimination laws, Roe v. Wade, the Voting Rights Act, Affirmative Action, or environmental regulations for corporations, the political Right has vehemently opposed every single one of these policies. It wants to take America back to a time where people died from easily-curable diseases, had less rights, had less financial stability, and a time where corporations were able to carry on with their business without regard to the environment that we all share. In fact, when it comes to actually conserving things, many of today's liberals are more conservative than the average self-proclaimed conservative is.

So, RWers of all stripes, do NOT call yourselves conservatives. You are regressives. Stop trying to hide behind words that you believe sound more euphemistic in order to advance your agenda.

Ted Nugent: "Blacks are only ones who don't realize Democrats are destroying Black America"

Conservative commentator and National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent wrote in his latest column that African-Americans are the only ones who don't realize that President Obama is continuing the Democratic Party's decades-long destruction of black America.

The comments are the latest in a long line of racially inflammatory statements from the rocker, who has said of the Confederate battle standard, "I am going to wear it forever."

In his February 20 WND column, titled "I Honor Blacks - The Dems Destroy Them," Nugent highlighted several metrics by which black America is struggling and commented:

"Barack Obama, the guy who received roughly 93 percent of black American votes, is the clear and present engineer of the destruction of black America.

It's not all the president's fault, but the economic and social policies he endorses are destroying what is left of a once proud and strong black America.



The truth is that the Democratic Party has been the engineer of the destruction of black Americans, and everyone knows it except the very people who need to know it the most - black Americans.

The turbo-destruction will continue for black Americans until they realize that dirty Democrat politicians are their true enemy, not their salvation. Fortunately, some are beginning to embrace this self-evident truth.

The truth will set those black Americans free who want to be free, who want to be the best they can be, who want to leave their grandchildren a better, stronger America."

Elsewhere in the column Nugent praised "the tapestry of black America" as "rich and vibrant," and claims that "black musical thundergods" influenced his "fire-breathing musical career." He concludes, "Say it loud: my music is black and I'm proud!"

This year alone, Nugent has attacked President Obama's "racist agenda"; accused civil rights leaders of speaking "ebonic mumbo-jumbo"; and claimed that gun owners will become the next Rosa Parks and offer nonviolent resistance if President Obama issued an executive order confiscating guns (a statement for which he was condemned by leaders of the NAACP, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and National Urban League). Such comments have not prevented Nugent from being praised by hosts at CNN and Fox News.

Others at the NRA have offered similarly insensitive comments related to race. Former NRA president Marion Hammer drew widespread criticism after she compared a proposal to ban assault weapons to past racial discrimination, and commentators have criticized the "racial overtones" they found in executive vice president Wayne LaPierre's recent op-ed.
