I Wonder…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:42 pm

I wonder what effect a John Kerry presidency might have on enlistment and re-enlistment rates in the armed forces. I’m inclined to think that it would not be good.

I wonder if I should cancel my hospitalization insurance if John Kerry is elected so that I can get for free the same coverage Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton get.

I wonder what new medicines will not be developed by pharmaceutical companies if prescription drugs can be bought cheaply from Canada, knowing that if Canadian-type price controls had been in effect in the United States between 1981 and 2002, there would be between 330 and 365 fewer new medicines on the market today.

I wonder how long it will take Teresa to give John his Walking Papers if he loses this election.

I wonder whether Ted Kennedy is half as loathsome as he appears to me to be.

I wonder how many Americans the terrorists have to kill on American soil before the war becomes depoliticized.

Don’t mind me. I’m just wondering.


  1. I wonder what effect a John Kerry presidency might have on enlistment and re-enlistment rates in the armed forces.

    If he got us out of Iraq in a couple of years, I would think enlistment rates would increase.

  2. Jack-

    If Kerry wins on November 2nd, I believe that the enlistment and re-enlistment rates will begin to plummet on November 3rd. As for “getting us out of Iraq in a couple years” an Iraq policy grounded solely on getting out, whether the policy is announced or implied is doomed to fail.

    Why? The bad guys read the papers, our current allies (already having been belittled by Kerry) read the papers, potential future allies that he promises to woo into helping us also read the papers, as do the Iraqi people.

    Kerry is stuck in 1971 when “bringing the troops home” would permit America to resume life as it was before the Vietnam adventure. Kerry apparently thinks that “bringing the troops home” in 2004 will turn back the clock to September 10th. He’s dreaming.

  3. Actually, what I got from that was that Kerry actually has some kind of an end in sight for the war.

    I mean, no matter what, we’re not getting out of there anytime soon.

  4. 1)Go here to see what the “boots on the ground” think of sKerry. With those kind of numbers, we WILL need a draft to staff the services! Talk about a self-fullfilling prophecy!

    2)Cancell your insurance if you don’t mind six month waits for specialty consultations!

    3)If we went Canadian style, it would be the practical end of new drug research. Name the last drug Canandian companies developed–all they do is manufacture our drugs under license to ours.

    4)He can’t go home when the returns come in on Nov. 2.

    5)Nope, Kennedy is worse than the average man could ever comprehend.

    6)More than we would wish;for the Moonbat popoulation, no number would suffice. They would be wringing their hands and trying to find the “root causes” for the Islamofacist’s actions, and what would appease them.

    A small tactical nuke in NYC, SF, Berkley and Seattle at the same time would clear out enough moonbats that the way would be clear to actually respond with the correct response.

  5. I’ve had the displeasure of dealing w/Kennedy. He is worse than Kerry in that he’s more skilled at deception and underhanded maneuvering than Kerry.

    It would take several attacks in cities, especially if they succeed in taking a school (as they’re currently planning), in places other than New York, before people would turn their anger/frustration on their enemy.

    Loathsome is too good a word to use in

    describing that lying, deceitful, pompous ass of wasted air space. Bloated alcoholic mass of

    creepiness… OMG,please don’t get me started!!
