Shut the Hell up Already Ann

Put a sock in Ann

We hear from the right wing conservatives “liberals are so whiny.”  hmmm I’ve been hearing a lot of whimpering from the right wing “Christian” conservative base lately myself!  One common trait they all seem to share is their obtuse world view and obnoxious “right wing conservative Christian  hate spreading agendas”

Ann Coulter is a media whore!  She makes money spreading her attention grabbing trash.  After listening to her, I can completely understand why some people view Christianity as a totalitarian force of bitter hate mongers!   I can completely understand why other religions see us as the ugly bully on the block and why atheist compare extreme blood thirsty Muslims to the Christian faith!   The truth is it may be a pretty fair analysis for the extreme right wing blood thirsty conservative Christian base! 

In this life, consigning Ann Coulter to “bitch-dom” is too kind an assignation.

I’ve got a better word for you, Ann Coulter.

The word that rhymes with what football teams often do on fourth down.

    It IS shocking to hear that football analogy from TTW!

    That quote up above, dated Sept. 13th 2001, 2 days after 9/11, is understandable and it’s ridiculous to think that she meant that literally… even though we did do two of those things in Iraq (legally) and we are safer here because of it, the people of that country are now free, living in a democracy and Saddam isn’t exterminating people by the thousands anymore. What she is talking about, from a Christian point of view, is fighting evil not spreading it like it sounds because it’s being taken out of context. And the part about converting everyone is what a true Christian wants… it’s what Jesus wants… what is wrong with that?

    She does say things for shock value but they are still true.. so why should it matter? She is making valid points. Just because people don’t like the way she says it, that doesn’t mean it’s not true.

    In high school my mother made me apologize for “disrespecting” a teacher. Well, I didn’t feel that I disrespected her in the least bit–she had invaded my personal territory and I defended. Since I was going to get grounded, I had to conjure up something:

    I apologized for the fact that SHE felt disrespected. It had nothing to do with ME.

    everybody, liberals should post something on a controversial angry and aggressive liberal character, something like a counterpart to ann coulter or rush limbaugh or bill o’reilly.. any ideas? drawing a blank on this one..

    Like

  18. To start, this is perhaps the political blog idea out there. Take what appears to be family and friends with different backgrounds and create the conversation that only occurs at family gatherings after a few drinks.

    Secondly, it would be nice to say that Ann Coulter was simply reacting to a terrible tragedy and making a hyperbolic comment in a sensitive time, but she has continued to make comments with the same fervor for eight years.

    It would be nice though if a high-profile liberal would make pretty loaded statements in mediums other than a documentary. Michael Moore is our O’Reilly, but even his most biting commentary comes across with a whimpering wrath like All Things Considered on NPR rather than a “news” program on Fox News.

    I do think that with a Chicago Democrat as the Chief of Staff that day when an extremely liberal POV is delivered with a wrath-worthy rhetorical rant is not that far off. I am from Chicago and know first hand that the GOP does not have a monopoly on machine politics.

    I think Lawman’s point about “her” statistics says it all. It isn’t some liberal agenda to make women single mothers…or tearing apart the family structures! Just as many conservatives out there getting divorced! Actually divorce rates are higher in the known conservative states…

    Coulter’s reference to “Massachusetts liberals” as if she were referring to people with some kind of disease. I decided it was time to do some research on these people, and here is what I found.

    The state with the lowest divorce rate in the nation is Massachusetts. At latest count it had a divorce rate of 2.4 per 1,000 population, while the rate for Texas was 4.1.

    But don’t take the US government’s word for it. Take a look at the findings from the George Barna Research Group. George Barna, a born-again Christian whose company is in Ventura, Calif., found that Massachusetts does indeed have the lowest divorce rate among all 50 states. More disturbing was the finding that born-again Christians have among the highest divorce rates.

    The Associated Press, using data supplied by the US Census Bureau, found that the highest divorce rates are to be found in the Bible Belt. The AP report stated that “the divorce rates in these conservative states are roughly 50 percent above the national average of 4.2 per thousand people.” The 10 Southern states with some of the highest divorce rates were Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas. By comparison nine states in the Northeast were among those with the lowest divorce rates: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

    How to explain these differences? The following factors provide a partial answer:

    More couples in the South enter their first marriage at a younger age.

    Average household incomes are lower in the South.

    Southern states have a lower percentage of Roman Catholics, “a denomination that does not recognize divorce.” Barna’s study showed that 21 percent of Catholics had been divorced, compared with 29 percent of Baptists.

    Education. Massachusetts has about the highest rate of education in the country, with 85 percent completing high school. For Texas the rate is 76 percent. One third of Massachusetts residents have completed college, compared with 23 percent of Texans, and the other Northeast states are right behind Massachusetts.

    The liberals from Massachusetts have long prided themselves on their emphasis on education, and it has paid off: People who stay in school longer get married at a later age, when they are more mature, are more likely to secure a better job, and job income increases with each level of formal education. As a result, Massachusetts also leads in per capita and family income while births by teenagers, as a percent of total births, was 7.4 for Massachusetts and 16.1 for Texas.

    The Northeast corridor, with Massachusetts as the hub, does have one of the highest levels of Catholics per state total. And it is also the case that these are among the states most strongly supportive of the Catholic Church’s teaching on social justice issues such as minimum and living wages and universal healthcare.

    For all the Bible Belt talk about family values, it is the people from Kerry’s home state, along with their neighbors in the Northeast corridor, who live these values. Indeed, it is the “blue” states, led led by Massachusetts and Connecticut, that have been willing to invest more money over time to foster the reality of what it means to leave no children behind. And they have been among the nation’s leaders in promoting a living wage as their goal in public employment. The money they have invested in their future is known more popularly as taxes; these so-called liberal people see that money is their investment to help insure a compassionate, humane society. Family values are much more likely to be found in the states mistakenly called out-of-the-mainstream liberal. By their behavior you can know them as the true conservatives. They are showing how to conserve family life through the way they live their family values.

It can’t be claimed that the reason for this statistical difference in the divorce rate is because there are more liberals in Massachusetts… and Liberals have stronger family values. It could just as easily be said that income was the reason for the difference in statistics.

    Here we go again… Lawman could you be more specific? Exactly what was accounted for? And exactly what is the accounting?

    The post/ article starts out by claiming that Liberals have better family values based on divorce statistics of the conservative ( primarily the Bible Belt) states and the Liberal (primarily the Northeast corridor) states. The article THEN goes on to explain OTHER reasons why these statistics are uneven… reasons OTHER than the initially alluded to reason that Liberals have stronger family values.

    From the post:

    How to explain these differences? The following factors provide a partial answer:

    1. More couples in the South enter their first marriage at a younger age.

    2. Average household incomes are lower in the South.

    3. Southern states have a lower percentage of Roman Catholics, “a denomination that does not recognize divorce.” Barna’s study showed that 21 percent of Catholics had been divorced, compared with 29 percent of Baptists.

    4. Education. Massachusetts has about the highest rate of education in the country, with 85 percent completing high school. For Texas the rate is 76 percent. One third of Massachusetts residents have completed college, compared with 23 percent of Texans, and the other Northeast states are right behind Massachusetts.

    So because the people in the Northeast corridor are better educated, marry at a later age (because of their extended education) have higher incomes, have a higher number of Catholics ( who DO NOT recognize divorce )…. THESE are the reasons that the divorce rate is lower in the Northern Corridor “Liberal” states… NOT because they are liberals. Using these statistics to support the claim that Liberals have better family values than conservatives is ridiculous and not credible… And please don’t do the “we had a bet” (ya right) thing again…

    See family values do not come from your political background. Its how you raise your kid yourself. A conservative can raise an amazing kid (me for example 😛 ) or they can raise a kid who will become the next serial killer! A liberal can raise the person who will bring peace to every nation or they can be the one who causes all of us to go into a depression! Who knows, its the parenting style not the politics…I know i am being sorta hypocritical but this kinda dawned on me….so there you go 🙂

    TTW’s post is arguing that the statistics show that Liberals have stronger family values…
    I think your confused Lawman… here is the conclusion to the post…
    Family values are much more likely to be found in the states mistakenly called out-of-the-mainstream liberal. By their behavior you can know them as the true conservatives. They are showing how to conserve family life through the way they live their family values.

    This is based on the statistics in the article… (you said: pretty offensive when someone can take statistics and say liberals or conservatives have more morals.)

    Yes you can use statistics to help assess morals as a whole in a group of people… IF the study is done fairly…

    Another part:

    For all the Bible Belt talk about family values, it is the people from Kerry’s home state, along with their neighbors in the Northeast corridor, who live these values. Indeed, it is the “blue” states, led led by Massachusetts and Connecticut, that have been willing to invest more money over time to foster the reality of what it means to leave no children behind.

    Gee… um.. do you think this could be because they HAVE MORE MONEY??

    And you said this on the other page: single parent rate in the united states shouldn’t be confused with some liberal cause though.just as many conservatives have contributed to this number.

    #1.. how do you know that just as many conservatives have contributed?? I would be willing to bet that is not the case.

    #2.. Ann’s point is that Liberal views diminish the value of the traditional family unit. “it’s ok to have a child without a father figure”… her point is that it is not ok for the child.
    Ann isn’t blaming the entire single mother statistic on the Liberals… but liberals are making it worse by spreading their “it’s ok” anti family beliefs.

  90. Kay, even though sometimes I sound angry I am never angry but I also do not view myself as a Liberal either because in my experience both conservatives and liberals get keyed up about thier Ideas. Unfortunately both sides want thier beliefs told as often as the other and they often cut each other off, which then makes them angry at each other. Now I must address something else Kay do you truely understand the comment about conversion? “We must invade thier countries, KILL thier leaders and convert them to christianity.” REALLY? SERIOUSLY? KAY! Do you remember the week after sept, 11th 2001? The dixie chicks almost got lynched because they said George W. Bush was an idiot. More people spouted views that stemmed closer to fundamentalism. She ment every word when she said it. But that was her view after 20,000 people died on her front door. We the people were all for doing just that. We ment it Sept 11, 12, and 13th were the biggest recruitment day our military has seen since the draft. People were ready to kill anything during that week. It was hell for me a medic in an MP unit, when we were called to keep the peace at a Mosque in Tampa. But the funny thing is, she was also referencing things that the Church both Catholic and Protestant (every other sect of the ORGANIZED Chirstian belief system.) The inquisition (there was even a law passed in 1541 in England and there was some laws that are still on the books in america that makes it a death penalty crime. In Both nations), The salem witch trials, the crusades, and other negative actions of genocide, commited with the support of the church. Even in WWII someone was convicted of Witchcraft in Britian. And this same organization still has the audacity to condemn Nazi Germany’s actions but not condemn simular actions that the faith has commited. I do not condone the actions of Nazi Germany nor do I condone genocide. Which is why ALL actions of genocide needs to be remembered. Not just the Holocaust because it happened more recently. This is the reason why I do not agree nor condone the hypocracy the Christian Organization preaches. I do not hate the faith just the Church. Which is actually two different things. But it is comments like what Ann said reflects badly on the Christian Faith. Also there are some conversion tactics that are almost criminal. I mean if someone listens to you and says “I do not believe the same way you do.” My advice do not try to convert them. It is not your soul that is going to your hell and converting people does not get you into heaven. But a lot of christian faiths do not hold true to thier own teachings, and will pursue to try to get this “condemned soul” saved. Sometimes these things end badly. There are so many negatives to the Organized Christian Faiths that it is hard to see the good they do in the community. Food Drives, Drug rehabilitation facilities (mostly double as a homless shelter as well.), in some areas community dinners. These all are good things, albeit another way of conversion but the lest fundamentalistic jihadist way of doing it. My suggestion is when you want to convey your views without feeling confused or that your views are wrong. (UNless you believe slavery, and the holocaust was in the right direction. Then you are just plain wrong. No matter how you look at it. But I doubt you feel that way.) Tell us your views minus the Bill Keller quotes unless they are pertenant. A quote does not mean the whole article that he wrote but parts of the quote. Put the url in the message and let us decide if we want to read it. Put some direct scriptural references or even references that you remember but you cannot say which book and verse it was. (This is called paraphrasing.) and what these things mean to you and what you think it means. These things are all true to you, that does not mean they HAVE to be true to US. But understanding the why and leaving it at that after you explain the why will help you not be confused by different statements. This is just to help you out and me putting my perspective on things. What I just wrote is not up for discussion. I will not honor a response because I do not feel I need to because I bared everything in this comment. Take my advice or leave it. Take my examples and the way I see things or leave it, I do not care. Just do not try to convince me I am wrong. For I truely am not trying to convince you that you are wrong. I just hope you will see things from a different perspective through this comment and I hope you learn at least a little something. I am not asking you to believe this way nor am I telling you if your view is different from this it is wrong. I am just telling you my perspective.

    How can you say ” stats have to be assessed for many things that may be in conflict, including the researcher
    And then say that emotions don’t interfere with statistics???

    And exactly… the analysis of the statistics is the problem… exactly what I explained with TTW’s statistics.. but just because TTW’s statistics were unusable for her point… that doesn’t mean other statistics (Ann’s) are also unusable… Ann’s statistic holds up her point much better than TTW’s statistics hold up the idea that Liberals have stronger family values. And because of that, they aren’t comparable.

    So if the point that I’m missing is that ” if you believe these statistics then you also have to believe these statistics… uh…no, that doesn’t work.

    And if the point is also that statistics are not valuable in these situations… that’s ridiculous… again, like I said before, statistics are extremely valuable and are used in every important aspect of life… because they DO help explain things.

    I believe that Ann’s statistic on this matter (the only one I’m aware of ) is pertaining to people in prison and how the majority grew up without a father. 70% I believe… if you think that not having a father in a child’s life doesn’t have a profoundly negative effect on them… if that’s your argument and Lawman’s, and/or that this statistic doesn’t give a clear indication of the importance of fatherhood… I strongly disagree…

    Ann’s statistic has less conflicting / varying factors … TTW’s statistics have those conflicting/ varying factors as listed. Ann’s statistic is solid… TTW’s statistics can’t be compared because they are faulty for what she is using them for… again.. those statistics DO NOT support the idea that Liberals have stronger family values… but Ann’s statistic DOES strongly support her conclusion…that single motherhood IS detrimental to the child… there… I hope you guys get it now…

    And if the point of TTW’s article was that statistics are not reliable in this situation, using those statistics as an example.. then the article shouldn’t have gone on and on making statements that imply that these statistics DO show that Liberals have stronger family values… I don’t mean to ‘pick’ on TTW.. but the article is conflicting for one thing and neither of the points holds up..

    bottom line… Liberal’s moral values are weaker than conservatives.. there is just no getting around that… and family values are effected… single motherhood as a choice is not only more acceptable but it’s the ‘in’ thing to do right now… again… Liberalism is liberation from restraints and the family life is suffering because of it… more specifically… as Ann makes clear… the child is suffering.

    I’m sure there are successful single parent and same sex parents who have / will raise productive people. Again.. that’s not the point… the point is that more often than not… these situations ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL.

Ann’s statistic is, I’m sure, one of the most indicative ones to support her point. Among many I’m sure.

    Are you arguing that people shouldn’t live by some form of moral restictions when it comes to sex urges? Are you staunchly in support of that most popular Liberal view also?

You are still standing in your own way on the statistics issue. It is really odd watching you try to claim one thing about family values and Christians and stand right in the way of explaining the other half of the misleading “fatherlessness” statistics. I really want to set you straight, but you don’t want to see it. In fact you refuse to see it, and I hate to waste my time. If you want to talk about fatherlessness, go to my other site, type it into the search, read ALL of the shit, and then come back.

    Your religious views stand in the way of truth. Your truth is good enough for you, but isn’t going to help cure the social ills. You know what happens when people honor religion and conservativism? They fight their impulses and feel guilt, neither of which are healthy. What? Pray harder? What? Pray the gay away? What? Pray disease away? What pray sex away? What? Wait until marriage? What? Pastors have sex with boys…children. What? Men abuse their wives, children. What? Pray harder and you won’t be affected. Just shut your eyes really tight, tell everyone to be Christian, and everything will go away once everyone converts. What?

    You keep talking about common sense…you don’t have common sense..you have religious values…that is very different. Common sense would talk your way through the fatherlessness stats. Common sense WONT help you understand the intersection of class, sex,race, etc. You really have to figure out how to put the puzzle pieces together.

    Maybe religion stunts people’s mental development…I don’t know.

    Well, I have to tell you, I think you are… not fooling anyone… certainly not me.
    Rj said: It is really odd watching you try to claim one thing about family values and Christians and stand right in the way of explaining the other half of the misleading “fatherlessness” statistics.

    Now who’s going in circles?? Why can’t you give a response that has some substance? I’m still waiting for you to explain the “misleading” fatherless statistics… you’ve mentioned them twice now but as usuall you avoid any detail… typical liberal… you waist time and effort writing this: ” I really want to set you straight, but you don’t want to see it. In fact you refuse to see it, and I hate to waste my time. If you want to talk about fatherlessness, go to my other site, type it into the search, read ALL of the shit, and then come back.”… When all you have to do is say IT instead of talking circles around it… What EXACTLY are the “misleading” fatherless statistics???? You have YET to come up with ANY statistics!!!

    I could pull the same crap on you but I don’t have to… I HAVE an argument!

    I explained, in my last post on this, extremely clearly my side… can’t you just respond to my points?? Instead of talking about circles and tails and exits and standing in the way etc. etc. etc. blah blah blah….

    This is pathetic… and again, I don’t think any of you are fooling anyone…

    You said:Your religious views stand in the way of truth. Your truth is good enough for you, but isn’t going to help cure the social ills.

    Could you tell me?? what truth would that be??? And I already explained clearly how the Christian TRUTH would help cure the social ills… I gave a perfect example… it’s called morals… living with some boundries… because as common sense would tell you…. living without boundries and limits leads to problems.. it’s such common sense that I don’t even know if I can refer you to any statistics to help you see that… it’s just common knowledge.

    “You know what happens when people honor religion and conservativism? They fight their impulses and feel guilt, neither of which are healthy.”

    Do you know what else isn’t healthy? Sexually transmitted diseases. It’s like you’ve never heard of the concept of self control… it does exist and all of us exercise it all the time… There are many reasons besides God ( if you choose not to believe in Him ) to use self control… health reasons including sexual diseases, unwanted pregnancies, incarceration to name a few. These things PROVE that boundries are good and necessary… Self control.. a really good concept.

    “What? Pray harder? What? Pray the gay away? What? Pray disease away? What pray sex away? What? Wait until marriage? What? Pastors have sex with boys…children. What? Men abuse their wives, children. What? Pray harder and you won’t be affected. Just shut your eyes really tight, tell everyone to be Christian, and everything will go away once everyone converts. What?”

    I don’t even know what to say to this lol… this is what ignorance is… this is anger and denial mixed together.

    “You keep talking about common sense…you don’t have common sense..you have religious values…that is very different.”

    Common sense is when you can figure out what works and what doesn’t and then choose to do what works. Gee… what a coincidence that doing what works is also what God wants you to do…hmmm…

    “Common sense would talk your way through the fatherlessness stats”

    Again, I’d really like to hear your version of this…

    “Common sense WONT help you understand the intersection of class, sex,race, etc. You really have to figure out how to put the puzzle pieces together.”

    You make it sound so mysterious… it’s not…
