Rick Perry's new moronic ad..A summary of a failed presidential campaign...

Any one following the 2012 republican primary nomination race, has certainly been entertained. From cheering for state executions and booing of a gay soldier, to the slip ups and punch lines, the GOP has exposed to America and the world just what it is all about. Sadly for America and for Texas, Gov. Rick Perry decided to try his chances at being the President of the United States. From the get-go, hell even before he jumped in the race and it was only rumors, I knew this was not going to end well for Rick Perry. I mean for one, they man hardly shows his face in Texas, this election cycle Perry barely made any stops or speeches in my city. You see in Texas we are a "Red State", meaning we are majority Conservative and Republican and Rick Perry had his election pretty much in the bag so to speak. Don't get me wrong he got on T.V and dished out ads where he lied about how he created jobs, and how Texas was doing fine in the recession...but Rick knew his Conservative sheep would flock to vote him in for a 3rd term simply because he has a "R" as his voting party.

Rick Perry might be able to get by in Texas with out doing much Public speaking and appearances. However to be President, Rick-boy has been thrown in to the media lime light like never before, and as a result we have seen the Real Rick Perry. Not the "Slick Rick" Pseudo Cowboy with a head full of hair, no my friends we see the REAL Perry,...Rick Perry the Moron who thought his dumb ass could fool the rest of Americans like he did the conservatives in Texas. Rick Perry is dumb, hell Dumb seems a little mild, the guy is fucking stupid, excuse my language. I mean seriously as a native Texan even I had no idea of the depths of stupidity and utter ignorance this man has.  As I said Rick is not in the media here in Texas as much as he has been in the last 3-4 months he has been running for President, so this man's utter stupidity comes as a shock to me as well.

First was his "Oops" moment heard around the world..

Then his drug induced stupor at New Hampshire:

The other incoherent ramblings:

His Latest ad titled ironically "Strong" seems to be culmination of the past months of Rick Perry stupidity. This ad is a result of the American public having seen Rick for what he is and as a result he is polling at 4% according to NBC/Wall Street Journal polls. Desperate to regain the support he once had before the public knew how much of a buffoon he is, Rick has decided to resort to the usual GOP tactics, number one attack President Obama at any costs(even if the attacks are unfounded) and paint him as a threat, attack gays and homosexuals, and last but not least invoke the Christian Fundamentalists that support the GOP.

Rick starts his ad off saying "Im not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian." leaving the viewer dumbfounded as to the reason for such a remark. As far as I know, most Christians are not ashamed to admit their religion especially a GOP candidate. So what exactly is this moron ranting about?

Next Rick proclaims that "You don't have to be in the pew every Sunday to know that there is something wrong when Gays can openly serve in the Armed forces but children can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school.."
-the only problem for Rick-boy is that you CAN have prayer in school, as long as prayer is not lead by a teacher or the school. I mean it makes sense not to have the state favor a religion and force people not apart of that religion to follow its customs. This is what America and the constitution was about, but to Rick and Fundamentalists they just don't get it. I am sure that Rick would not mind schools to force Christian children to pray five times a day and face Mecca if they had a Muslim teacher.-Yeah. Secondly, what is this crap about Christmas, are there some government forced crackdowns of children celebrating Christmas unknown to everyone except Rick Perry. What is this man talking about, no one is denying children or anyone the right to celebrate Christmas, especially considering that Christmas in America is a secular holiday which originates from a pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice. Ironically the people forbidding their children from celebrating Christmas are other Christian groups such as the Jehovah's Witness and others.

He ends his ad by claiming he will "End Obama's war on Religion" and vowing to end "Liberal attacks on our religious heritage".. Well, I must say I am impressed. The conservatives never cease to amaze me. First Obama is a secret Muslim now he is an atheist with a war on religion bent on preventing children from celebrating Christmas. To be fair I am sure, or at least I hope, most conservatives do not hold the views of Rick Perry. I mean Obama could be an Atheist or Agnostic deep down, despite his claims and remarks about Christianity and his faith. The idea has crossed my mind once or twice, but to say Obama has a war against religion is simply a lie. If the truth is told, Obama has done plenty for religion and to try to show himself as a Christian, he even had Rick Warren deliver the invocation at his inauguration ceremony. His remark about liberals is not even worth mention but the idea that Liberals can be religious must come as a shock to Rick Perry and I am sure most right wingers. Simple research will show that most liberals are religious in some way.

Rick Perry has come to the end of his rope, he proclaimed before his remark about ending Obama's war on religion, that if "He were President". Well Rick I don't know how to break it to you but you wont become president buddy. You are a buffoon and even your conservative party can see this. Currently his Ad has 638788 dislikes, a clear message to how the general public feels about Slick Rick Perry.

Putting History into perspective...

Why History is Important.

As an aspiring historian, I keep asking myself.."Why"..Why am I going this route, why is this so important to me, and why did it take such a long time to recognize that I wanted to pursue history. Well I can not tell you exactly when I became interested in history, as a child my interest was in Astronomy(still is) and as a teen I became interested in Architecture. It was not until recently that I  recognized that I love history, despite the fact that I bought many books dealing with historical subjects. I guess my interest in history started with the fact that history can never end, that the story of history can always be reexamined and at the same time give us conclusion about modern day life. I do not want to go on with some long winded boring post so I will just get to the point....

How this blog will be structured...

1) I will post information on general history that will range from different subjects and time periods, from Prehistory to modern day history, from religion to secular. I will label the discussions based on their location, ancestry, and or importance...for example: Ancient Egypt, Ancient Sumer, Middle Age Ireland etc. The evidence will consist of images and information from a wide range of sources including magazine, internet sites, books etc.

I will try to present subject matter from an unbiased view point, but opinions and leaning will occur.

...Thank you again..
