My darlin' Ann is in all kinds of hot water now, for being a vicious cunt in the eyes of many leftist fucktards. She had the nerve to criticize 9/11 widows for making a whining career out of their husband's deaths. The NERVE of that woman.
I never did learn from any of the stories that I read whether those grieving widows were part of the group that SUED after 9/11, because the riches being offered by the federal government at the time simply weren't enough to assuage their overpowering grief.
I had two problems with that entire affair. First, I didn't believe that the federal government should've been handing out MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to people after the attack. That's what you buy life insurance for.
I ESPECIALLY didn't like it when some of the greedy bitches decided that a mere $500,000 or so wasn't ENOUGH for them, so they sued the city of New York, and anybody else they could think of to milk this gravy train for every dime it was worth.
That was a disgusting thing to do. Almost as bad as what Cindy Sheehan has done by making a lucrative career out of the death of her son.
Shit happens, people. And when bad things happen to you or yours, you ARE NOT automatically "entitled" to a whopping check just... because. Bullshit.
I damn sure don't believe that the world owes you ANYTHING. I look at those "grieving" people on the news and I remember that video that my Uncle George shot in that old cemetary in Clay County, Kentucky a few years ago, where he photographed the tombstones of a LOT of MY relatives, ones I never knew, because...
"Baby Samuel." Born Oct. 22, 1931. Died Oct. 22, 1931.
"Arthur Saylor." Born Feb. 16, 1920. (MY birthday!) Died Dec. 12, 1931. Fever took him.
"Baby Twins, Sara and Joshua." Born Mar. 8, 1928. Died Mar. 9. 1928. "May they rest forever in each other's arms.
Or how about a REALLY good one, when my cousin Ernie and I spent half a day hacking through overgrown, mountain underbrush to locate a cemetary on the side of a mountain where nobody had visited in nearly 30 years. After a lot of searching, I found what I was looking for.
It was a granite tombstone, laying face-down in the jungle, all covered in vines and pushed out of the ground by the roots of trees that had grown under it. I picked it up, turned it over and read... "Robert Smith. Born Feb 12, 1900. Died May 16, 1936."
That was my grandfather. The one I never knew. The one who died when my father was 12 years old. The one who was nicknamed "Pete," and who dabbled in some shady activities when the unions started organizing in southeast the Kentucky coal mines. A man who carried a pistol a lot.
I looked at all those graves and thought... what kind of check did people get in the mail THEN? What talking heads were falling all over themselves to stick a camera in someone's face and ask, "How do you feel, now that you've buried three of your own children?"
Was Ann Coulter "over the top" with what she wrote? I guess so, given our ideas of compassion and political correctness anymore. But the truth hurts, as I have learned very well on this blog. Most people can't take it anymore.
But if those widows hurt so badly, why did they collect all the money they got and then become political activists? It damn sure couldn't be a "HEY!!! LOOK AT ME!!! kinda thing, could it? While the checks kept rolling in?
Guess how many got-dam checks MY relatives received when their children died young or even in infancy, and their wives died in childbirth, or their husbands got injured in the coal mines and couldn't work anymore? Back in THOSE days? I'LL TELL YOU!!!
Not one. Not a got-dam penny.
But they survived and kept right on keepin' on. It wasn't always easy, but they weren't spoon-fed the idea that life is SUPPOSED to be easy. Or "FAIR!"
In MY humble opinion, Ann Coulter was correct in everything she said. What has people all aghast and outraged now is NOT the fact that she made that shit up. She didn't. It's TRUE.
But we've reached the point in this country today where a strutting display of moral indignance is a lot more important than courage. We've got this crazy notion in our heads that when bad things happen to YOU, somebody OWES YOU something to make it "right." We believe that manna falls from heaven, and NOBODY has to pay for it.
We mistake posturing for spine, weepy rhetoric for true grit, and pitty-pot grievance for ANYTHING except what it really is. "Compassion" is gonna be the death of this country and we're well on our way to getting there.
I just have one question--- where is MY check in the mail? I deserve it more than most people who get one do. I fuckin' PAID for it. Gimme my money back.
By MY calculations, I'm already paying for three mothers on food stamps, 1.5 minority bastard children, child support to a bloodless cunt, property taxes that have doubled since I bought my home five years ago and I DON'T GET SHIT in return.
No... I take that back. I get more SHIT than I want. I think the IRS is gonna rake my nuts over the coals because I didn't pay ENOUGH in taxes in 2003. $40,000+ didn't satisfy them. I may be in trouble.
My achin' ass. Give me MORE of those New York widows whining. I'll bet I can give them a run for their money. I might ask 'em for a loan to pay my tax bill. After all, that's MY money they "earned."
And get off Ann Coulter's ass, you bunch of sanctimonious pricks.
Bravo. This is why I've kept reading your blog these past years. Keep telling it like it is Acidman.
Yes. I thought even then that it was a bit much. Tragedy happens every day, on a less-public scale. I thought it was downright immoral that this particular tragedy, above all others, was the one that people would profit from. Yes, it touched the heart of a nation. Yes, it scared us all. No, it's not something you get to get rich over. People are widowed, left childless, injured, killed...every day. And they don't all get rich from it. It's wrong. Thanks for saying it, and for pointing to someone else who said it.
Yes, bravo for coming to the defense of Ann who stands to make her own millions on victimizing victims. Kudos to Miz Coulter for her savvy bidniss sense.
Can't wait for her next book, "Kids With Cancer: how liberal children use their disease to get free trips to Disneyworld."
Followed of course by her sequel, "How To Be A Good Christian (If you must)".
Anybody ever heard the word "Shibbolith?"
My spelling might not be correct, but the word means a religous structure that NEVER should be challenged. It's like God walking on water.
The TRUTH pure and simple. And those who question it deserve to DIE!!!
Is THAT what you meant, Bou?
A-man, it is shibboleth with an "e". And Ann is right on the mark with her book. Those commies bastards on the left will use any trick in the book to keep people from challenging them. And these four broads along with Hag Sheehan and Murtha all just a part of it. If you can't challenge what they say then there is no free speech. Haven't bought Ann's book yet, but I am going to. Wonder if I get order an autographed copy. I have a copy of Treason which is autographed. Have to look around.
I have long thought of liberalism as a type of religion. More of a cult. Look how a cult treats someone who leaves. You will see the same on the left. They get treated the same way. There are other similarities but I'm sure Ann has them covered.
"What has people all aghast and outraged now is NOT the fact that she made that shit up. She didn't. It's TRUE."
You're dead on with this post, A-Man.
The sense of self-entitlement that people have developed, especially in regard to loss of life is astounding and disturbing. More than anything, I think it's pathetic.
A Tom over at Winds Of Change made the claims that Ann wants to repress liberals, and wants to force all non-Christian nations to become Christian nations.
I called him on it, asked for specifics and also asked him what his definition of "repressing" as he used it, is.
Sorry, I just realized my post above may be misleading; I should have said that Tom made a posted comment to a thread; not to imply he was any kind of author of a thread.
Yes these four bloodless cunts were the first in line complaining and filing lawsuits that $1.8 million in taxpayer dollars was not enough. Why didn't their loving husbands have $10 million or so in life insurance if they loved the cunts so much? They turned grief into greed before the authorities could verify that their husbands were dead. I've always figured a jury should not award anyone more than the life insurance the family had on the dead guy. To me the amount of life insurance is the value their family placed on them. Ann Coulter has them and the entire left wing pegged, all a bunch of phony bologna cowards.
Heh, wait 'til you try to collect any of the ton of money that got stolen from you and pumped into that gov Ponzi scheme called "social security". Better be a drunk ,a druggie, or an illegal. Or fagetta 'bout it.
A fat government check instead of having to pay for/sleep with a divorce lawyer and the husband died? Yeah, some of them are really hurtin'...
This is nothing more than an especially disgusting manifestation of the huge entitlement complext that most American Women have today - they want it ALL, and they want it for THEM, and they don't want to have to DO anything to get it.
Kick'em to the curb, I say.
I don't have a blog.
If I did I would have said what you said.
But you say it so much better.
Ann may have a point, but the message was lost in her delivery.
Not that my single voice means anything, Ann ws spot on!
Actually I'd like to see an audit of those bitches tax returns!
What is it about take your fucking ill gotten gains and shut the fu_k up?
On top of that, what the hell is the country doing paying anything to anybody? Did the govt use nukes or nerve gass to help put out the fires caused by who?
Sue the arabs, it was their fuel in the planes! Sue islam, it was THEIR members that piloted the planes! YOu know just like suing the Catholic church cuz some of their annointed leaders thought it was fun poking into alter boys "happy place".
These "RICH" widows really should stand with the criticisim or go hide with their dollars.
But of course the kitchen dan get warm from time to time, and we know they can't even cook!
if she were interested in making the point (and i think it is valid) instead of getting attention for shock value, she wouldn't feel the need to name-call.
ann coulter thinks if we kill all the liberals, this country's problems will solve themselves. come on, i'm not even stupid enough to think that's true. eventually, she's going to have to grow up and stop blaming everything on liberals. it's like she says something intelligent, and then ruins it by going off on a "commie" tirade. has it occured to anyone besides me that north korea is a totalitarian dictatorship and NOT communist? sheesh.
