ColorOfChange.org Has Nothing To Do With It’s Time

I wasn’t blogging again when Glenn Beck called Obama a racist, so here’s my opinion in a sentence or two:

I don’t really agree with him, but I do know that he’s got a right to his opinion.  I do think though that Obama sees race and it influences his decisions.  So take with that what you will.

Anyway, after his comments there was, understandably, a considerable amount of outrage.  It gave MSNBC good ammunition for a couple of days, and with viewer numbers like theirs, God knows they needed it.  However, ColorOfChange.org took it a step further and decided they should start a petition to get advertisers to remove advertising from The Glenn Beck Program.  So far they’ve been successful in getting GEICO, Lawyers.com, Progressive Insurance, Procter & Gamble, and SC Johnson to drop they’re advertisements from the program.  Now, they’re definitely entitled to start they’re little petition, and obviously they had enough support to get it somewhere.  But how, might I ask, does this further the mission of the Color Of Change Organization?  That’s got me scratching my head.

If your not familiar with ColorOfChange.org, here’s a little bit about them in their words: “ColorOfChange.org is strengthening Black America’s political voice”.  So, by getting advertisers to pull out of Glenn Beck’s show, they are strengthening Black America’s voice?  How does this “make the government more responsive to the concerns of Black America’s”?  Answer:  It doesn’t.  This is just hate from the left to combat the opinions of the right.

I’m not sure what ColorOfChange.org was doing when Kanye West called George Bush a racist in 2005 (and even went as far as to say that he didn’t care about black people), but I find it hard to believe they were doing anything but nodding along.  I can remember laughing at my friends that were “boycotting Kanye West forvever!” because of his comments because, quite frankly, who cares?  If he thinks that, more power to him.  By the way, “Heartless” by Kanye West is one of my favorite rap/R&B songs ever EVEN THOUGH Kanye thinks Dubya is a crazy racist.

So, ColorOfChange.org, the next time you guys are bored and need a fun petition to start, do something productive that actually helps fulfill your “cause”.  Because I assure, Glenn Beck will find advertisers, no matter how many people you “convince” to drop his show.  He comes on at 5 and still has ya prime-time boy Olbermann beat in viewers.

I’mmm Baaaraaack!

Hey guys, sorry for the extended summer leave.  I’m going to be quite honest and say that after my big trip at the end of May/beginning-of-July, I was just exhausted.  Not to mention that I was getting sick of the way politics in our fine nation were headed.  So I decided to take a few months off, regroup my thoughts and return when ready.  That’s why I didn’t leave a “formal” (as formal as you can get on a small to midsized WordPress blog), but rather just left quietly.  If you look back on my last few days of posting, it’s clear that I was running out of creativity and energy.  So for your sanity and mine I decided a break was necessary.  And man did a lot happen during that break!  I decided I’m not really a conservative, sold my car and bought a bike, stole an Obama t-shirt, spread rumors about Sarah Palin, and most of all became the number 1 supporter of Obamacare!  So…… how was your summer?

Now obviously that’s all one big lie, though apparently lies are the going thing these days.  What really did happen this summer was eye opening:  I saw for the first time that our country really is headed south.  I joked about it via this blog/life in general (Don’t worry, I still will), but it occurred to me over the summer things are getting bad.  Having said that, I’m still the same person and chances are this blog won’t become any more serious than it was before.  I’m now just…. aware.  I’ve never really hinted at my age on this blog so it doesn’t influence the way it’s read, but I’m a pretty young guy.  And though I’ve been interested in politics since our election for Crayon Czar in first grade, I feel like for the first time I really understand what’s happening around us.  So hopefully I can bring some of that understanding through in my posts.

I look forward to posting as I used to, though I’ll probably avoid the filler posts for now.  They’re tons of fun for me because that’s the way I like to broaden my horizons, but I’m probably gonna be too busy, at least until after Christmas.  If it looks I have time for it I’ll be sure to bring it back!

Thrilled to be back everyone!

Thanks!

Video of the Day: The National Debt Road Trip

I saw this video on YouTube and I thought it provided a great illustration of just how much we are going to spend over the next few years.  I think it really puts into perspective the way we’re going is not the solution.  Here’s the video:

Video of the Day: Barack’s Speech at Notre Dame

As they say in show business, the show must go on.  And despite all the protests and subsequent arrests, of course, the show did in fact go in.  Barack delivered his speach to the crowd of the graduating class of ’09 as well as countless spectators.  Anyone that can decipher what that heckler said please let us know:

Video of the Day: Protestors Flock to Notre Dame

Outside the gates of Notre Dame in Indiana, hundreds of people protested the arrival of golden boy Barack to give his address on the campus.  The protestors were out in full force against his views on abortion and stem cell research.  Ironically enough, “Roe” from Roe v. Wade was in attendance to PROTEST abortion, though in the original historic case she was in support of legalizing abortion.  Watch the AP Video below:

TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: Joe”I Have A Top Secret Bunker In My Basement!” Biden

Joe Biden swapping secrets with his waitor at dinner last week.

Joe Biden swapping secrets with his waitor at dinner last week.

Man, that Joe Biden is a card.  He just can’t seem to get it right, can he?  Joe’s been known for his gaffes over the years; in fact, there are several lists of them circulating around the interweb.  And while I usually think they are hilarious and innocent, this one’s got me a little worried about ole Joel.

Apparently, Joe told a group of friends he was having dinner with about the bunker, which held former Vice President Dick Cheney during and after 9/11.  The bunker is supposed to be top secret to ensure the safety of the VP should anything happen to the president.  Well of course, Joe couldn’t handle a little secret and now the world knows where he’ll be if the U.S. should face a 9/11-like attack in the future.  If his blunder results in the relocation of the secret hideout, it’ll be a real shame considering that in 2002 the bunker was apparently fixed up with the latest epuipment to sustain the VP and his staff after officials saw that it was not fully prepared to handle a crisis situation like 9/11.  Of course, Barack was not at all happy about this incident.  I don’t agree with anything he says, but at least he’s got enough sense not to leak top secret information.

Surely Joe can learn to keep his mouth shut before he leaks something even MORE secret than TOP secret.  But look on the bright side: Unless the people running top secret government stuff have learned their lessons, we can sit tight until Joe is briefed on the happenings at Area 51!  We’re surely in for a treat when he spills that.  And until then, I am honored to present Vice President Joe Biden with The Conservative Journal Honorary Plaque of Fail.

Video of the Day: Barack’s (Or His Writers) Got Jokes!

I was in the car today driving to see my family for Mother’s Day and I heard on on the FOX News radio channel on XM several clips from Barack’s epic speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.  I just found the full clip, and I must say Barack’s funny here.  I realize he more than likely didn’t write any of it, but he delivered it well and at least he’s not above picking fun at his incessant use of the teleprompter.  It’s a great watch and definitely worth the 17 minutes of your life it will consume.  Here is the full speech:

Video of the Day: “Blame It”, Barack Obama Style

Sorry again for such little posting over the past week; it wasn’t a tough few days!  Everything should be back to normal now.

Here’s a funny video that Totally Sketch made.  It’s a remake of Jamie Foxx’ latest song “Blame It”.  Once again, their ability to find actors that are perfect for the characters is amazing.

Video of the Day: More Fun Gaffe’s Courtesy of Barack

Oh man, I just love when Barack treats us to some great humor!  It is a recession you know, so this free entertainment is much appreciated.  The latest little gaffe is a really doozy.  I like how he exerts zero effort in trying to cover it.  That either shows that he doesn’t care at all, or he had no idea what he was talking about at the time.  Either one is very upsetting.  Watch the gaffe below:

TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: Barack Obama and Gang

Dear Barack and Posse,

The city of New York and the entire United States ask that you please refrain from joy riding around in Air Force One at only hundreds of feet of above the ground.  We realize that we didn’t have any pictures of you in flying past The Statue of Liberty or Trump Towers, but please.  At least tie a banner to the back of the plan that says, “GOOD MORNING NEW YORK!  IT’S B.O. UP IN THIS PLANE”, or something to that effect.  We’ve even included a reference for you for the next time you want to take scenic shots of Manhattan:

Barack, we expect to see this next time.  Thank you.

Barack, we expect to see this next time. Thank you.

Anything less than that will be a disappointment.

Thanks,

The United States, excluding Frank-Pelosi-Reid.

For Barack and crew’s display of ignorance we award them with the “Honorary Plaque of Fail”, which even includes a place in the Hall of Fame!  This award is extra ironic because Barack was the first recipient of the “TCJ Seal of Approval” back when he took out those pirates in an efficient manner.  Well, in accordance to the law of gravity, what comes up must come down, and Barack’s status as upstanding member of society did just (Intentional exaggeration.  Don’t e-mail me about it.) that when he approved the flight of the Boeing 747 that flew low through the skies of Manhattan just so the White House Gift Shop could update its Statue of Liberty post card section.  The trip not only horrified many New Yorkers, but it cost (and wasted) millions of tax payer dollars.  And while “millions” of dollars is nothing in the grand scheme of the government budget, it’s the principal of the matter.  And for that, Barack and the gang, we tip our DUNCE caps to you.

What do you think of the flight through Manhattan?  Leave your comments below or send an e-mail to theconservativejournal@gmail.com!

Thanks for reading!
