The Angry White Man

I know this has been posted before just keeping it on your minds.

There is a great amount of interest in this year’s presidential elections, as everybody seems to recognize that our next president has to be a lot better than George Bush. The Democrats are riding high with two groundbreaking candidates — a woman and an African-American — while the conservative Republicans are in a quandary about their party’s nod to a quasi-liberal maverick, John McCain.

Each candidate is carefully pandering to a smorgasbord of special-interest groups, ranging from gay, lesbian and transgender people to children of illegal immigrants to working mothers to evangelical Christians.

There is one group no one has recognized, and it is the group that will decide the election: the Angry White Man. The Angry White Man comes from all economic backgrounds, from dirt-poor to filthy rich. He represents all geographic areas in America, from urban sophisticate to rural redneck, deep South to mountain West, left Coast to Eastern Seaboard.

His common traits are that he isn’t looking for anything from anyone — just the promise to be able to make his own way on a level playing field. In many cases, he is an independent businessman and employs several people. He pays more than his share of taxes and works hard.

The victimhood syndrome buzzwords — “disenfranchised,” “marginalized” and “voiceless” — don’t resonate with him. “Press ‘one’ for English” is a curse-word to him. He’s used to picking up the tab, whether it’s the company Christmas party, three sets of braces, three college educations or a beautiful wedding.

He believes the Constitution is to be interpreted literally, not as a “living document” open to the whims and vagaries of a panel of judges who have never worked an honest day in their lives.

The Angry White Man owns firearms, and he’s willing to pick up a gun to defend his home and his country. He is willing to lay down his life to defend the freedom and safety of others, and the thought of killing someone who needs killing really doesn’t bother him.

The Angry White Man is not a metrosexual, a homosexual or a victim. Nobody like him drowned in Hurricane Katrina — he got his people together and got the hell out, then went back in to rescue those too helpless and stupid to help themselves, often as a police officer, a National Guard soldier or a volunteer firefighter.

His last name and religion don’t matter. His background might be Italian, English, Polish, German, Slavic, Irish, or Russian, and he might have Cherokee, Mexican, or Puerto Rican mixed in, but he considers himself a white American.

He’s a man’s man, the kind of guy who likes to play poker, watch football, hunt white-tailed deer, call turkeys, play golf, spend a few bucks at a strip club once in a blue moon, change his own oil and build things. He coaches baseball, soccer and football teams and doesn’t ask for a penny. He’s the kind of guy who can put an addition on his house with a couple of friends, drill an oil well, weld a new bumper for his truck, design a factory and publish books. He can fill a train with 100,000 tons of coal and get it to the power plant on time so that you keep the lights on and never know what it took to flip that light switch.

Women either love him or hate him, but they know he’s a man, not a dishrag. If they’re looking for someone to walk all over, they’ve got the wrong guy. He stands up straight, opens doors for women and says “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am.”

He might be a Republican and he might be a Democrat; he might be a Libertarian or a Green. He knows that his wife is more emotional than rational, and he guides the family in a rational manner.

He’s not a racist, but he is annoyed and disappointed when people of certain backgrounds exhibit behavior that typifies the worst stereotypes of their race. He’s willing to give everybody a fair chance if they work hard, play by the rules and learn English.

Most important, the Angry White Man is pissed off. When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.

He also votes, and the Angry White Man loathes Hillary Clinton. Her voice reminds him of a shovel scraping a rock. He recoils at the mere sight of her on television. Her very image disgusts him, and he cannot fathom why anyone would want her as their leader. It’s not that she is a woman. It’s that she is who she is. It’s the liberal victim groups she panders to, the “poor me” attitude that she represents, her inability to give a straight answer to an honest question, his tax dollars that she wants to give to people who refuse to do anything for themselves.

There are many millions of Angry White Men. Four million Angry White Men are members of the National Rifle Association, and all of them will vote against Hillary Clinton, just as the great majority of them voted for George Bush.

He hopes that she will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, and he will make sure that she gets beaten like a drum.

I think that I am a angry white man. The one thing that really pisses me off is what you said about the customer service in india, man do I hate that. It is bad enough that you are calling because you don't know what is going on then you get some guy or girl you can't understand that makes the problem even worse. I'll tell you something else that makes me pissed, talking to a damm machine. Whenever i get one of those I just mumble chit till it gets me a real person to talk to.

My soap box item right there.

Day in and Day out I deal with the so called "educated talent pool" from India. Not all, but in general, the quality of the programming I see is as poor as the quality of a Yugo . We have a programmer on our team who will say he can solve your coding problem hopefully by the end of day tomorrow. Two hours later he gives you a program that works FLAWLESSLY the first time. Guess what, he's NOT from India (though if I recall he is from Indiana ). Enough of this "offshoring" crap so they can increase their "profitability" by tens of percentage points. Nobody is going to be able to afford their products pretty soon since those "high paying" jobs DON'T EXIST FOR AMERICANS anymore.

Enough of my ranting.

Here! Here! Right on! I know with this being a Diesel website we all bemoan fuel prices for our toys and work vehicles. My question is what is it going to take to get our worthless (and I mean WORTHLESS) government to let American ingenuity and American heavy industry (what hasn't been shipped to China) get us out of this horrifying mess? Five dollars per gallon for diesel now and one hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico away from Ten dollar per gallon gas and diesel ?!!
Different entrepeneurs and companies have the technology to help us out , but Congress won't let them do it because it's not "green enough".
If I hear "Cap and Trade", "Carbon Credits", or "CO2 is a pollutant" one more time my head is going to explode!! Unfortunately I will be hearing these very same things many, many more times. Thanks Congress for thinking about your constituants in a time of crisis - NOT!

Really it is so simple, VOTE. And I mean vote for the conservatives be it republican or libertarian. We all (me included) bi--h and moan but unlike the libs and the democrats we don't vote the way we should.
I mean look at the dems they vote two and three times each. That is what this thread is all about VOTING

Yeah!

Both parties are equally as useless now... Our government is owned by large corporations. Their lobbyists are the real politicians. in the early 2000's Bank of America Citibank Wal-Mart and so on held roughly 16% of our gross domestic product supply. Now they hold over 60%!. Now we ask ourselves why diesel is so high, why money has lost its value. Why are taxes so high, Why cant businesses make it?

The reason is that our greedy, shady, worthless senators sell their votes to the lobbyists of the corporations. That bank bailout was a load of BS too. The working man (such as us) was made to give them money. Now the banks wont even loan it back to most people. They are investing it overseas. The other banks went chapter -7,11 and pocketed billions of American dollars and have a Yacht for everyday of the week. While over 30% of Americans homes are being foreclosed on!!!!!!

SORRY I could go on for hours about our worthless govt.
