    Do As I Say, Not As I Do

    [Posted by ]

    From yesterday's New York Post:

    ON the issue of affluent Americans paying more income taxes, John Kerry is, as always, consistent in his inconsistency.

    On the campaign trail, he's in favor of raising taxes on everybody who makes over $200,000 a year. Unless, of course, he's the one being asked to pay more, in which case, forget about it.

    Massachusetts tax payers have the option to pay at an older 5.85% tax rate, rather than the current 5.3% rate. Did Kerry? Of course not. In fact, less than 700 residents did.

    If Kerry isn't willing to pay more when he has an easy option to do so, why does he want other Americans to? Perhaps more importantly, if 99.97% of taxpayers refuse to pay more, why does he advocate this position? The answer, I can only assume, is that he's a Dummocrat (emphasis on the "dum").

    Facts? He Don't Need No Stinkin' Facts

    [Posted by ]

    From GOP.com's Fact Log:

    OPINION: Kerry Claims No Nation Sending More Than 1,000 Troops To Iraq Other Than Britain. KERRY: “I believe that as long as you have what is almost solely an American occupation, 135,000 American troops, and no other country there with the exception of Great Britain exceeds a thousand, I believe. Somewhere in that vicinity. Many of them are under 500 many of them and many of them are not in combat.” (Sen. John Kerry, Press Conference, 4/14/04)

    FACT: In Addition To Britain, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ukraine, And The Netherlands Each Have More Than 1,000 Soldiers Serving In Iraq. As of April 9, troops from Poland (2,400), Ukraine (1,600) and Spain (1,300) serve in the South Central zone of Iraq, including Najaf and Karbala. Troops from Britain (9,000), Italy (3,000) and the Netherlands (1,100) serve in the Southern zone centered on Basra. In total, “coalition troops from 33 countries in Iraq are deployed in three zones under U.S., British and Polish command.” (“Coalition Troop Deployment,” United Press International, 4/9/04)

    I'd like to see John Kerry's map of the world. I suspect his Europe contains Britain, France & Germany. And that's it. Well, maybe Spain is relevant now that they're known appeasers.

    Bowling for Fallujah

    [Posted by ]

    I almost hate to lump Michael Moore in with regular Dummocrats. But then, I think about all those Hollywood liberals giving him an Oscar. Then, I imagine those same people opening their checkbooks for Kerry at swank LA parties and I get mad. Instead of getting awards, Moore should be getting more treatment like he did in Cox & Forkum.

    Moore's crazy, bile-filled letter to his fans is fisked so wonderfully at Right-Thinking that I can't do it justice. Read it yourself.

    A Candidate for the Common Man?

    [Posted by ]

    Today on NBC News' Meet The Press (transcript linked).", John Kerry addressed his comments on foreign leaders "rooting" for him to beat President Bush:

    MR. RUSSERT: Let me see if I can clean up a comment that you made in March that created an awful lot of controversy and stir. "I have met more leaders who can't go out and say it publicly but, boy, they look at you and say, `You gotta win this, you gotta beat this guy, we need a new policy'--things like that. So there is enormous energy out there. Tell them, wherever they can find an American abroad, they can contribute."

    The Washington Times added this: "Although Mr. Kerry indicated that he had met in person with foreign leaders who privately endorsed him, he has made no official trips abroad in the past two years. Within the United States, he has had the chance to meet with only one foreign leader since the beginning of last year, according to a review of his travel schedule."

    Specifically, which foreign leaders have you met with who told you that you should beat George Bush?

    SEN. KERRY: Tim, first of all, that is an inaccurate assessment of how I might or where I might be able to meet or talk to a foreign leader, number one.

    MR. RUSSERT: But you have talked to foreign leaders who told you...

    SEN. KERRY: Number--Tim, what I said is true. I mean, you can go to New York City and you can be in a restaurant and you can meet a foreign leader. There are plenty of places to meet people without traveling abroad. Number two, I'm under no obligation--I would be stupid if I were to sit here and start saying, "Well, so-and-so told me this," because they have dealings with this administration. This administration doesn't talk about its private conversations, and nor will I. I invite you, I invite The Washington Times editorial, go to European, go to foreign capitals, travel in the world. Talk to any American businessman who has been abroad, talk to any of our colleagues who've traveled abroad, and the conversations they've had. Never has the United States of America been held in as low a regard internationally--and polls have shown this--as we are today. We're not trusted and this administration is not liked.

    Let's highlight the best part:

    "Tim, what I said is true. I mean, you can go to New York City and you can be in a restaurant and you can meet a foreign leader."

    Now, I know some people would think this is a perfect example of how Senator Kerry is completely out of touch with the common man and woman. The rarified circles he travels in means that he can't relate to the everyday issues facing middle class Middle America.

    But I don't agree. I mean, Kerry's right. Why, just the other night I ran into Pervez Musharraf at the Avenue Bar's fish fry. And, I saw Leszek Miller, Vaclav Havel & Silvio Berlusconi standing in line for beer at the Union. Not to mention the fact that Jacques Chirac is in my book club (this month, we're reading "The Rules of Surrender").

    To be honest though, most of them were pretty glad Bush was around to play the Bad Cop, although Chirac *did* confide to me that he thought Laura Bush was way hotter than Teresa Heinz Kerry.

    What's new at Dummocrats.com? (changelog)

    [Posted by james]

    We keep this page as a running change log for the site. Feel free to comment on the changes we've made and to suggest others.

    TO DO LIST

    2004 August 24 - (jkhat) - updated monthly archive template to match rest of site

    2004 August 14 - (jkhat) - moved sidebar code into its own file; modified main index and indiv archive template so that they inclide this file.

    2004 August 14 - (jkhat) - Added site referrers to site. Modified script at http://www.downes.ca/referrers.htm. . Will create credits page and add his name to it.
    2004 August 03 - (jkhat) - Added "description" field to database tables for daily links. Doesn't show up on main links page yet, but can be seen on the beta page, http://www.dummocrats.com/links/index2.php

    2004 August 02 - (jkhat) - Altered both main page and individual archive page so that the trackback links show up right on the page, not in a pop-up window.

    2004 August 02 - (jkhat) - Altered main page so that a few weeks of weekly archive links show up at the bottom of the page. Also added a link to a "main archive" page that doesn't exist yet.

    2004 July 26 - (jkhat) Added Daily page icons. As many of you can no doubt tell, we're not professional webpage designers. However, we did come up with a bunch of cute little "category" icons that we're gonna start putting next to Daily Page news stories. We were going to save the icons for when we rolled out a whole new redesigned daily page, but since we all have day jobs, it could be some time before we get around to finishing that.
