Rabid Seal of Approval – IMAO

with 15 comments


Well, this week, I want to award the Rabid Seal to the folks over at IMAO.  In a lot of ways, IMAO inspired what I do here at The Rabid Conservative.  Of course, they have more sponsors and contributors than I do, but the internet is a big enough place and we just don’t have enough rabid, right-wing blogs out there.

IMAO, or In My Arrogant Opinion is at times, rough and a little raw, but the one thing I appreciate is that they don’t ever debase themselves to what liberals do for entertainment, namely resort to stuff that I wouldn’t want my kids to see.  IMAO’s posts are funny and insightful and they mix it up in a way that keeps it fresh and interesting.

Congrats guys (and girls – never know these days) – keep up the great work.

Until next time, stay Rabid.

  3. This is probably the bumbest site I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few).
    I knew that most conservatives suffer from brain-damage, but did not know that is was caused by rabies.
    Thank you for this clarification.

  4. Jan – That jab was weak. I mean, c’mon, is that the best you can do? But then, I don’t expect a kool-aid drinking liberal to truly understand rationality, so let me explain it to you.

    When you live in a world where you have to create and reinforce perceptions of victimization, satisfy infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence, and compensation, augment feelings of envy, and reject the sovereignty of the individual and subjugate him to the will of government, well, you’re living outside of reality. That is a psychological dysfunction.

    Distorted development from childhood brings it on – continuously learning to whine about imaginary victims and rage against illusionary villains, all for the sake of running the lives of other people who are fully capable of running their own lives, in order to satisfy that inner craving for validation and self-worth.

    In short, I may be brain-damaged, but you’re brain dead.

    Thank you for reading.

  5. I gotta agree with Jan… of all the bumb stuff I’ve come across, this is the bumbest. I really feel like a bumb-ass for even being here, but then again, I’ve done bumber things.

    Now that I think of it, watching libtards attempt to spell simple words while trying to express a genuine thought makes me feel kinda like Feynman…

  6. Umm…okayyyy….that was pretty retarded, even though the libtard part was OK….

  7. (Rick, I was being facetious. Our friend Jan appeared to be too dumb to correctly spell the word “dumb”.)

  8. *smacks head on table* I thought it was some sort of foreign internet slang or some weirdness. So I looked it up in the Urban Dictionary and wouldn’t you know it, ‘bumb’ can mean ‘retarded’. It also refers to the posterior region as well, so who knows…

    Oh well, I guess I’m not all there either today…too much rabidity today after fighting over stem cell stuff yesterday and the IMAO onslaught..

    But it underscores one thing that Obama has going for him…make a plan really really dumb and it will almost sound smart…how the heck to the liberals do that? Must be some sort of bumb witchcraft.

  9. make a plan really really dumb and it will almost sound smart…how the heck to the liberals do that?

    The same way they can sell the notion that Bill Clinton “saved the Constitution” by getting repeatedly blown by a fat Jewish intern while in office- it doesn’t have to be based in reality or truth; It just has to be spoon fed to ignorant people by the mass media.
    The will to keep believing in something they already support – even if all evidence to the contrary refutes their claims every time – is a strong instinct in folks who refuse to educate themselves.

  10. Exactly right, Alan. Thing is, liberals don’t want to align their thinking with reality because reality is just too confining.

    Take abortion for example. There’s just one thing that makes abortion wrong – it kills a human being. But if we decide to call it a “fetus, embryo, or zygote” suddenly, conscience doesn’t need to be soothed, because a “human” wasn’t destroyed…just an embryo, zygote or fetus.

    You should read the comments to this recent blog post, “http://rabidconservative.ws/2009/04/07/in-short-stem-cell-research-and-an-idea-for-obama/”. Notice how my opponent attempts to redefine words like conception to make them compatible with her beliefs, rather than sticking to the actual defintion of conception.

    Liberals spend a lot of time trying to relieve themselves of the confines of reality that whenever they come up with an idea, it doesn’t match back up when reinserted into reality.

  11. That was interesting inasmuch as she wasn’t foaming at the mouth while typing, as so many people are prone to do where politics & morals are concerned. At least she was kinda polite.

    Unfortunately, she sounds the same as others in her argument. The whole “it’s not a person until a certain trimester” tack she seems to allude to is the same tripe that they were trying to use 18-20 years ago to justify abortion then, just as they’re rehashing it for the new cause celebre of stem cell research now. The notion that an embryo is no different than bacteria or an ant or pollen is offensively stupid, too. Sure they’re all biologically similar in some ways, but to say that culling an embryo for some imaginary cure is no worse than washing your hands to protect your health is simply retarded.

    I’ve never understood how people claim moral high ground about this because of some alleged potential benefit with no evidence to support it, just because they or someone they know might benefit from it.

    “Never mind that it kills an early stage human; it might possibly help someone perhaps years or decades from now…maybe.”

    It’s like watching chimps try to comprehend a Shakespeare play.

  12. The thing about that discussion was that she was poo-poo’ing ASC research outright

    The thing is, there is no persuasive evidence to suggest the ESC’s will have any more of an effect in treating PD, they’ve only not been tried (something about a ban). In general, there is no real evidence to conclude that ESC’s would be any better than ASC’s.

    Now, I’m no doctor, but I can see some serious logical flaws in her discussion. After doing a net search on her name, she has appeared on scores of other blogs saying the same things and each time, she gets hit with logic, at which point, she retreats off the issue.

    For her, it’s more an act of desperation guided by liberal drives to dispense with the moral implication. That’s what liberals do, since there are no real absolutes with them – except the absolute that says there no absolutes.

  13. My understanding (and I may be incorrect) is that ESC research wasn’t banned world-wide and while the US is advanced in the realm of R&D, I would thing that some concrete evidence of their usefulness would have been evidenced in some part of the world.

    I generally don’t buy into conspiracy theories, but to me this seems more like a smokescreen for advancing “abortion rights” (as though the Founders had prenatal infanticide in mind when they drafted the Bill of Rights!). If there were some definite proof of ESC’s being even somewhat as viable as an adult’s, I might feel less apprehensive. But it’s just not there, and I feel as though the issue was turned into another crisis that is somehow all Bush’s fault yet once again. Or it’s the ever-elusive Religious Right out to tear down the wall between church and state. Or whatever else they can come up with to find “moral” or “socially responsible” reasons to terminate another person for selfish gains.

    And they call conservatives barbaric.

    The hypocrisy of the new Progressives is nothing new at all, but the viciousness in which they assault humanity, faith & family values never ceases to amaze me. ESC’s don’t have to viable; they just need to seem like they could be. As I kinda stated earlier, the will to believe in a lie just because it sounds pragmatic & forward is a hallmark of Progressive liberalism. So are staggering body counts, both prenatal and post, in the name of progress.

  14. Pretty much off-topic at this point, but you’re entitled to a Participant ribbon if you want it:
