California recall

by Jonathan - Thursday, Oct. 16, 2003 at 6:16 AM

California and Arnold as a new Governor. Is this a case of America on the new path for a revolution? Just my own personal thoughts.

My friends and I were out drinking on the night of California’s recall and election at Portland’s claimed to be the oldest bar "Huber’s Cafe" after having the finest Sushi dinner at Saburo’s in this harmonious progressive town. Surly, it is fun to experience a short live MasterCard moments once in a while. We were all well fed, too gorged and somewhat drunk as the atmosphere of the bar set the stage for it and the kind owner did allow it. To his wonder we took a full advantage of it too. The background music with the piano player and a solo singer were also eased me into taking a little trip to the past recalling the better days of my life when I was studying the American History on my own.

The more I was thinking about it the more I was just grateful to the vision of our Founding Fathers. How they envisioned resolving that difficult day if Americans ever had to encounter tyranny or else in this great land of the free and the home of the brave. That is without sacrificing blood and by having the people to exercise their rights to vote and demand to have the ballot boxes out so they can discharge their frustrations with the government.

Yes indeed on that remarkable Tuesday night of October 7th, 2003 America experienced the first of many revolutions set yet to come without a single shoot to be fired or an injury to another man. Oh please forgive me, but to be fair we all have to admit that there was indeed a massive shot fired into the leg of the leftist groups and parties in America. Those Socialists, extreme Liberals, Communists, and else in California and America.

Californians showed up in the record high at their ballot boxes and told Davis to leave for good. They told him that they are tired of his very liberal and socialist agendas. That he and his party has not accepted a fiscal responsibility for this great state, that he is spending so much money on social welfare and programs targeting illegal immigrants, minorities, and else and he is no longer representing California’s interests anymore. That he is not an upright man when all of a sudden appoints over 260 new judges right after the recall date to secure his liberal agendas in state even after he is long gone and else...

Surly, Davis and Bustamante hijacked the mainstream Democrat Party and ran it over the cliff. The internal power struggle between the two resulted in a victory of the old mainline Democrats in Republican clothing and made them to rise from the JFK’s grave this time as Michael Savage said it intelligently. Arnold’s victory celebration was indeed a return to Camelot. What a revolution we had that night in America and how solemn, civilized, and silent yet powerful it was. Needless to say what a Hollywood ending with Arnolds's speech!

What I personally liked the most was the fact that Arnold unlike Bush won by the popular (Majority) votes which made the extreme liberals disdain on the outcome once again. Furthermore, he used some tactics in bringing some dramas involving his under waistline matters to gain support and popularity of democrats in California. He sure learned it from Billy the pro, who did pickpocket my vote twice on his presidential elections by his charm in whispering gentle words softly in my ears along with his setting of saxophone pitch and else. How misguided, innocent and dull I was in my yesteryears when I was a liberal myself. Undoubtedly if Billy could have gotten away with his misconduct issues in the clear daylight why can't Arnold? Remember this is the land of equal opportunity.

Wow…Our seismologist's historians did surely record this robust trembler on that night in KALLEFOURNEYA (as Arnold says it impressively). The new revolution has just started and the flame is going to be contagious. Mark my words on it.

I won't be surprised if the shock of this trembler felt already outside the continent and reached the beautiful shores of Southern America giving a wakeup call to the once liberated nations by Bolivar, and San Martin. Knocking on the doors of Miraflores in Caracas, where Hugo Chavez this ''revolutionary'' barbarian leader in a red beret resides, dictates and rules his Cuban style slave farm and with NO shame denies the constitutional rights to the children of Bolivar, who are begging gracefully for their day of justice in holding a referendum. It may even reach those Portenos in Buenos Aires and make them plea to Carlos Kirchner who I call "Lupo" in taking responsibility by balancing Argentina’s current and capital accounts with the rest of the World. But knowing him he would rather be known as the biggest thief of the region and to be chained in Casa Rosada. By the way nobody is asking what Argentina ever did with that much money, which the World community trusted it with? I can trace that answer to the corner of Avenida Callao & Corrientes myself, but why nobody else is chasing it? That is almost three times more money than what Bush is asking for to secure our interest in Iraq. What a disgracing leaders we got in the Southern Hemisphere of this beautiful continent of OURS!

With all the fairness the news of our strength coming back, the news of the Bald American Eagle being FREED and opening its majestic wings as leaving the cage echoed equally but in the converse means to our enemies abroad, only added fuel to their ill-will against us "the infidels". If you are one of those loyal AL-Jazerah listeners you know what I mean. Coincidentally, United Nations released the World poverty report prepared by Ahmed Obaid on the eve of California’s glorious day. Ahmad was suggesting in his report that America should contribute more to the poor and needy in the third World countries who are way sexually active, and are deprived from education and medicine. America’s donation should prevent early pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS disease, and will help in family planning and else. Ahmed probably thinks that America is not recognizing its own invisible state named after it (Poverty) or America is not generous enough to help the World in fighting it. Few billion dollars here, few billion dollars there, what the heck let’s give to the World Trillions of dollars as far as I am concern. But please somebody tells Ahmed that in "the name of his God the merciful and the great" we will use our offshore accounts saved under the sand for it to fulfill his wishes. America is NOT going to print money, and deteriorate its currency any further to finance Ahmed’s noble dreams. If that is not pleasing Ahmed should go and get it from the pirate seating in Casa Rosada who is holding our money! The buck stops there ….

Get your wigs out America, and I mean your RIGHT wigs out. Halloween is right around the corner. What a timing! Aren’t we lucky for a change? Let’s pay our tribute in an evening of clean fun and dress up as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Q. Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Daniel Webster, Thomas H. Benton, Henry Clay, or Sam Houston. Needless to say that the real credit goes to the brilliant Californians this time. Who else? Where else? But Californians, and California. That is where America's leading strength lies on matters of importance and now the rest of the union have no choice but just to follow. Did you think that Utah is going to do that? Idaho or Oregon? Of course NOT … That was the job of our best state in the union and the 5th greatest economy of the World!

Thanks to our great Founding Fathers and the best system of government which is the envy of the World. Thanks to the 9th district Circuit court Of Appeals.
Thank you California. Thank you Californians. Thank you Arnold.
Let me translate this last sentence in Spanish for our Latino readers as we all need to learn Spanish soon in America as it is being promoted by our Democratic Party presidential nominees debates in the media.
"Gracias California. Gracias la gente de California. Gracias Arnold"

America will progress and prosper soon. Americans the sleeping giants who didn't show up on the streets of America against the decision on matters of national security, values, and interests made by their commander in chief are awaken now and are demanding a change. A broad change for good of our system and the good of those who are becoming our governors, judges, and leaders. A vital shift in asking them to hold a much higher morals and merits while serving in the office, and hopefully soon that is going to be reflected on the corporate America as well. Get these liars OUT of offices, who have NO shame in having inconsistency between their convictions and their votes. Having NO shame of having their conscious inconsistent with their conduct even under oath! That they are bunch of liars even in their personal lives and can NOT be trusted on the matters of morals, values and national securities for America and Americans.

This is going to be unquestionably a pivotal point for America to rise and shine in this century once again. My friends and I were discussing about the possibility of having another revolution in my home state of Oregon recalling our democrat governor soon. As we were leaving the bar all woozy and drunk we all agreed that the revolution like this can only happen in this great country of USA, where a Austrian emigrant races against a Mexican descent kicking the White fellow out of the office, yet both claiming to protect American values, and California's interest. They were both partisan in campaign but united in governorship as the loser "Bustamante" said it best in Sacramento.

Good job Arnold, and good luck ...
God Bless America

Still befuddled from having too much Vodka with too many slices of reality, and truth! Forgive me if my personal demagogue’s thoughts disturbed your kind of a Kodak day. Next time if you see me at the local Microbrewery standing by myself think of Mark Twain’s quote "Be good, and be lonesome". My position is to be firm on my thoughts, and I can live with it. I know that I am not alone on the right side standing next to the America’s president, conscious, interests and our men and women in the uniform with my own mug of Blueheron in hand. I say let’s Salute to that!

"Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world."
Quote from Daniel Webster
The defender of our Constitution
