"I'm against gay marriage UNLESS I'm talking to Ellen Degeneris"...Joe Biden, say it ain't so!

On [yesterday’s] episode of “Ellen,” Joe Biden told Ellen DeGeneres “that if I lived in California, I would vote against Proposition 8.” This initiative reads, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” Yet, in his debate with Sarah Palin on October 2, Biden said that “Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage.”

So, which is it? In a nationwide debate against Conservative, Bible-believing Palin, Catholic Joe Biden says one thing, but in a nationwide interview with newly married lesbian talkshow host, Ellen Degeneris, he'd vote against California's Proposition 8.

The bigger deal on this Biden situation is THE LIE, but the subject is important to me, too....Californians, please support Proposition 8. Let's show that the 9th Circuit cannot overrule the will of the people. Finally, and forever. The 9th Circuit knows most Californias are NOT homophobic and that most Californians are as smart as the court is in understanding that gay couples need only go to a lawyer for hospital, insurance and inheritance rights. This is about AGENDA, folks. As for Biden.....this lie, on the heels of SO many others by him and Obama, SHOULD give ANYBODY pause.......


Listen Carefully, Obama voters.......Here are the numbers re: TAXES (the TRUTH about TAXES)

Mr. Z wants you to know:

1. Obama claims:

He will reduce taxes for 95% of the people, and if you earn $250k or less, you will not have to pay one cent more.

2. The tax reality is as follows:

For those people, who submit an income tax return (138.4 million), the 95% point is situated at about $150k. The $250k point covers at 97.5% of all. These data is extracted directly from the IRS Website and covers the last data available (Year 2006). (Z: if you're statistically impaired as I am, you should know Mr. Z means those earning $150k AND UNDER).

3. One can only conclude from this, that Obama is lying, like with about everything else he voices (Z: I love a good editorial!). This does not include the fact that he would increase the corporate tax, capital gains and the inheritance tax. The corporate tax will impact everybody directly (including those who don't pay income tax) and at the same time reduce the work force (and, therefore, the number of people filing tax returns) . Capital gains tax concerns at least 50% of those who pay income tax. And establishing an inheritance tax of 60% destroys the very nature of ownership.

4. By-the-way: Here is the share of the total amount of income tax which certain groups pay:

Group % of all tax returns % of total income tax

$250k or more 2.5% 48%

$150k or more 5.0% 65%

$75k or more 19.7% 82%

$50k or more 33.3% 92%

Hope this clarifies the matter.

A wise European

SO, I just went downstairs and was talking to Mr. Z and his son who's here from, let's just say, Europe.

As most of you know, in Europe, Obama is considered the best man for America's presidency, let's face it. Mr. Z's son isn't too political, but he certainly thought Obama must be a pretty good guy from what he's heard. He's been visiting for ONE WEEK, listening to us and watching FOX, CNN, etc., and here's how the discussion 10 minutes ago went:

I said "So, you've only been here one week, but you have to admit that if you only believed HALF of what you've heard about Obama from us and the television, wouldn't you agree that Americans ought to think twice before voting for him, that what you've heard in Europe isn't the truth?? Wouldn't only believing 50% of what we say make you think you'd better think twice if you were voting for Obama?"

His answer was "50% of what I've heard? It would only take ONE thing to change MY mind.... He wants to go into MY pocket and give what I've got to SOMEONE ELSE. That's enough for me!"

WHY isn't that enough for many Americans? I told him I'd blog this and wouldn't use his name. He said "Just call me Mr. Z, Jr.!" Done. (brains run in Mr. Z's family!)



Those of you who saw TITO THE BUILDER tonight know exactly who I'm talking about. Mr and Mrs. Z were cheering. Our favorite part is this guy with a Hispanic accent and dark glasses, saying "WE AMERI-CAHNS, we dun't want Socee-alleesm......." Actually, I think I LOVE TITO!!! THAT's an AMERICAN!
My picture got changed by theinternet so I deleted it, if you're wondering what a comment inside was based on. Sorry!

Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr.

Mr Barack Obama's father had more input into his son's life than we have been told.

Mr. Barack Obama's father had some very unAmerican ideas..........all of which Mr. Barack Obama has adopted. Some privately, some not so private. Mr. Obama does not mention his father's communist leanings anywhere in his book. I wonder why.

If you're voting for Barack Obama and don't read the linked article, you're doing our country a great disservice. Thank you.
(but, if we reveal this information, because the Right's been so vilified, we're called zealots, doing anything to get the liberal guy to lose the election. When is this going to stop? When will rationality return, where we can criticize and point out problems without being accused of something? Ever?)

Dear Mr and Mrs Liberal American

To Mr. and Mrs. Liberal American,

Conservatives are tired and a little scared of you, to be honest.

You see, we feel you’re about to finally change our great country beyond our recognition and way beyond the desire of our founding fathers and we don’t like that, but every time we try to speak out, we’re called RACIST, BIGOT, NONINCLUSIVE, OUT OF TOUCH… name it, we’re it.

Having said that, some of us still think that not all Democrats are Marxists. Some of us remember Pat Moynihan and Tip O’Neal. We didn’t much agree with them, but we felt that they loved America, hated Communism, and would fight hard to promote the success and well being of all of us. I believe they respected and loved the constitution. Some of you either don’t understand it or you resent it; it’s hard to believe that your viewpoints could possibly be taken as following the letter of the laws.

Conservatives are against illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. We feel our country is better served with people who want to come here and be Americans, not sneak in and go on the dole. We feel breaking the laws to come in isn’t a good start toward the goal of becoming a lawful American and we feel working lawfully to get into this country helps aliens feel more respect for us. By the way…we think they should have respect for us. But, then we have sanctuary cities, thanks to liberals. How much respect could law breakers possibly have when we ourselves break our own laws? (We do NOT HATE illegals or Hispanics or anyone else)

Conservatives don’t want you to take our guns away. Read the constitution, it’s right there and we like it. We want protection in case things go wrong. The British got rid of their guns and gun crime went up 24%. (We do NOT believe taking all the guns except those of criminals who’ll never give them up is going to make us safer; how could you?)

Conservatives cherish marriage between a man and a woman and would like to continue that tradition. Statistics (as if anyone needs a study for this?) show that children thrive when they have a mom and a dad who are committed to each other; they benefit from learning from and being nurtured by both. This plan has benefited societies for a couple of thousand years and we don’t see a need to change it. If you feel gay couples have no rights, consult your lawyer, he’ll show you how you’ve been lied to. (We do NOT hate gays) We also believe in the protection of unborn children. And we certainly don't believe babies born in spite of botched abortions shouldn't get medical care. (We believe a child has as many rights as its mother)

Conservatives feel that this country was founded on freedom OF religion, not FROM religion. Lately, we’re starting to feel our Judeo-Christian roots are more under fire than those extremist groups who’d like us dead. We think that’s a lousy idea and we think that Christianity and Judaism, which make up approximately 90% of this country, deserve to be respected and honored and that references to God should stay in the American lexicon. That tiny minorities of other religions are offended speaks volumes about how they feel as an invitee into this country. Some of us even think this society started going down hill precipitously as soon as we took prayer out of our schools, but we’re sorry others haven’t made that connection and we’ll stay quiet on this one for a while. (We do NOT hate all other religions)

Conservatives feel that there is an American culture, no matter how many ‘multicultural fairs’ our elementary schools regale our kids with. Think of a Norman Rockwell painting, that’s us, that’s America. We want to say the pledge of allegiance and leave God in it, we want to celebrate American foods and music and typical attire and not feel we’re being unkind to foreigners in our midst for doing so. We’re not, it’s our country, we let them in, and we feel they might want to make allowances for OUR customs, our feelings for a change. (We do NOT want to prohibit others from celebrating their heritage, but we would like ours respected and put in the forefront in this country. It’s AMERICA.)

Conservatives feel everyone in this country should be able to tell if coffee’s too hot to hold in a cup while we drive and we’d never sue anyone who poured us a good, hot cup. We’d be more careful and realize how stupid WE had been, not the POURER, if it spilled. We know law suit damages have to be reduced and people need to start taking responsibility for their own mistakes. Maybe it would be nice to make the person bringing suit to know that, if he loses, he’s paying the guy he sued’s costs, too. That might bring things back into reality. (We aren’t against someone being compensated for evils done to them, we just know we can handle suits better)

Conservatives feel that America isn’t the only country causing whatever climate change liberals feel is caused by humans (regardless of the information to the contrary about cycles, etc.) and we’d rather not pay for cleaning up the entire world. We feel that an open and honest discussion would do us better than one agenda being rammed down our throats through AARP and other TV commercials and ads, Gore’s constant drone, etc. We are FOR a clean earth, it’s just that we think that not inviting the side we feel holds at least as much credence (US) as the alarmists side to international talks is silly and nonproductive. We don’t block out another point of view. Oh, and we’d never scare kids with the kind of gloom and doom they’re being taught in elementary schools around this country. We think that’s cruel and even a little sick. We don’t use kids to promote an agenda. (We do care about the environment, we’re just realistic about it and don’t hide from truths we don’t like).

Conservatives want FREEDOM We want to think for ourselves, we want the government to stay out of our business and we feel that might help us do better on our own. We believe welfare does a lot of us more damage than it does good. We also know lower taxes promote a successful society better than high taxes do. We want the freedom to spend our money like we’d like to. We want to help the sick and needy on our own, and we do. ( We are not bigots who hate the poor or think they should suffer) We want private union voting and feel anything other than that is Chicago bullying behavior...You know that, how could you not?

Conservatives feel ALL Americans are equal. We are sick of being made to feel guilty for sins of slavery we aren’t responsible for. We also resent minority communities keeping their own people down. We resent the Jesse Jacksons of the world who think they speak for Black America but do nothing but convince them they’re victims, unable to succeed. We side with minorities who feel affirmative action makes them look like they couldn’t do it alone. We encourage people to do well, we don’t admire dependency of any kind.. (We are not racists).

And then, there’s something that’s maybe more important than all of the above: Conservatives aren’t so quick to remind Americans that America’s not a fantastic super power. Why do you liberals do that in so many ways every single day? We don’t feel such guilt that we have to help the rest of the world before we help our own poor and sick.

Conservatives know there are exceptions to all of the above points, but we operate on the majority, not the minority.

We’re tired …The Left, and it's wholly-owned media, has painted us into a corner that’s unfair and even stupid. ANY party which paints any other major party with the mischaracterizations the left has should be ashamed, but you aren’t, are you. You keep pushing and insulting and demeaning and reveling in your media which supports you.....we’d like you to start putting OUR country first again. America was better when did and we just can’t see that in most of your platform.

Mr and Mrs. Liberal American, you’re about to vote for Mr. Barack Obama. Check out the points above, remember the TRUTH in how Obama regards these things (not what he says now for votes, but what he’s said for so many years in so many ways), and think twice.

We Conservatives are begging you. Save this country, stop falling for the lies.

Very Sincerely,

Mr. and Mrs. Conservative American

This about says it all.

thanks to Deborah for the head's up..this is so good!

UPDATE: The Obama people have looked into Joe The Plumber's CHILD SUPPORT PAYMENTS. Do you think America can survive this inquisition, people thugging into private matters because someone dared disagree?


Does Obama pay for CNN Campaign segments?

When CNN does a segment on Apalachicola Bay, Florida and how Obama's promised to release river water from big cities into that bay so oyster fishermen will do better, is that a campaign ad? In a full ad-to-ad segment, they interviewed a couple of fishermen who said "this is politics, what's he care about us?" They interviewed others who say they're considering voting for Obama because he's addressing this. McCain has made no comment on this bay because he probably realizes idle promises aren't easily kept and it's unfair to build up the hopes of these fishermen, but one fisherman said he thought Obama really cares about them and he might be voting for him for that. Is that an ad? Shouldn't Obama pay for that?

Brad Miller (D-NC) is a big Obama supporter and admonishing America to not be angry or bitter. He feels that bringing up Obama's horrid alliances througout the last twenty years and the groups he's worked for, etc., is just "appealing to FEAR". Mr. Miller has every right to represent his guy on CNN (their guy, I guess I'd have to say), but are we really supposed to shut up and realize socialism is wonderful and ignore the fact that bad choices in friends and business colleagues over the years just might make this guy a bad choice for us? Should we just go quietly? z

"I think they've made the determination that whatever money they have to refund on the back end doesn't outweigh the benefit of taking all this money"

That quote above is from this article. A comment made about the incredibly questionable (at best) credit card monies coming to Obama. My GOD. What did I say about Obama's being Machiavellian?

Watch all of this....Obama isn't mature; there's new information here, freshly presented.

Thanks SO MUCH to Average American for this video. It's so important; it has so many obvious points about Obama's character and his knowledge and his obfuscation and lack of ability in taking a stance on important issues. We know that, as he does here with Charlie Gibson, all Mr. Obama has to do is excuse his words as 'inartful' and the public and the media forgive him, but shouldn't we worry about something he might say on a more important scale if he's our president? Can people make voting decisions when they hear a candidate so conflicted, so duplicitous in his opinions? Is that his inexperience or just wanting to remain neutral enough that he's that 'blank screen' for people of 'vastly different political stripes to project their own views' (as he writes in THE AUDACITY OF HOPE)? Can we afford that in a president?

Please watch this and send it around. I can't tell you how important this is. It shows, point for point, that he just isn't quite sure where he stands.

Thanks. And thanks to Average American for the head's up. And thanks to all of you who direct your friends to this video, they MUST SEE IT.


If she says "Oh, I'm just hangin' around", I swear, I'll smack her!!!

So, you all hear about my city, LA, and how some guys in West Hollywood (our gay capital here) thought it was VERY cute and VERY Halloween to hang a mannequin of Sarah Palin in effigy from the eaves of their home?

Pretty awful, don't you think? Tonight, I find that, FINALLY, the mayor's admonished them for it (SHOCKING!). Woopdeedoo, as Archie Bunker would say.
Tuesday morning, after hearing about the 'hanging', I went to Mr. Z and said "You know, maybe we ought to hang an Obama effigy from OUR eaves.............THAT will show the Left here! We should DO it and call the LA TIMES with the scoop..." I MEANT it! I said "Nobody CARES about Palin hanging......but let us do that to an Obama DUMMY and people'd go NUTS and we could show the unfairness, the BIAS!" Right?

Then the cold awakening came..........RUH ROH...Hang Obama from a rope? I DON'T THIIIIIINK SO. I want you to know I SERIOUSLY hadn't immediately realized what I was saying. And I was disappointed because I wanted to do this and say "See? You love slamming the Right, but let ME slam a Leftie, and........" Then I remembered the color thing. NO CAN DO.

Is that right? Is that fair? Is that a metaphor for how this campaign's gone? The point is NOBODY ought to do this TO ANYONE, White, Black, or PURPLE..NO HUMAN BEING OUGHT TO HAVE THIS DONE TO THEM, EVEN IN EFFIGY..... This is NOT FREE SPEECH as the gay hangmen and their neighbors who found it SO cute said it is.

And, by the way, where are the women's rights groups? Could they LIKE that? Why aren't they up in ARMS? This is THE GAY part of LA and you can't even find a lesbian when you need one.

Spreading the wealth is fine UNTIL...............SURPRISE!

Thanks, Lachochee Kid!!

ANOTHER BLOG BURST TUESDAY! We SURE have learned an awful lot about someone's (lack of) CHARACTER

by Mustang

Presidential Character
Some people argue that domestic issues are of far greater importance than any discussion of character. I could not disagree more. All elections are about character. If we cannot trust the honor, patriotism, and fidelity of our elected representatives, then the issues don’t matter because whatever a candidate of low character shall say about political issues cannot matter.

I believe we each must consider the character of the two men who want us to elect them as our next president. Some may argue “What more is there to know about either candidate?” after a campaign that has lasted far too long. Ordinarily, at this point in the campaign, I would say, “nothing more.” Except in this election, “We the People” have found the press (as guardians of American democracy) seriously deficient. Rather than remaining impartial, the media has fallen head-over-heels in love with one of the candidates; we must excuse them from the jury of the court of public opinion. This year, the American people have not witnessed a fair trial.

Samuel Adams once said, "The public cannot be too curious concerning the characters of public men,” but this was long before the Obama Era. Political correctness and liberal bias have led us to outcries of racism for even asking questions not even remotely related to race.. The press castigated our friend “Joe the Plumber” for daring to ask about income redistribution. According to one radio report, the Secret Service visited a woman because she told an Obama Campaign worker that she would vote for Barack Obama, “over her dead body.” This kind of attention applied to citizens for merely expressing an opinion is patently un-American, but it is also reminiscent of the intimidation used to silence dissent in communist countries. Character matters all right, especially if suppression of the right of expression is what we can expect from an Obama presidency.

In order to assess the character of our presidential contenders, we must decide upon an appropriate exemplar. On the democratic side of the aisle, the obvious notables are Thomas Jefferson, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton. Jefferson may be too far back in time to serve as our role model. Roosevelt was a patent socialist. Truman left office as one of the most unpopular of all our presidents. Lyndon Johnson gave us too many scars. Mr. Carter was a buffoon and Bill Clinton . . . well, I wonder if we aren’t just a little too tired of hearing about him. Kennedy seems to qualify as the best Democratic Party exemplar, even if he was a womanizer; no one is perfect.

In the twentieth Century, notable Republican presidents have included Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. Of these, Roosevelt was impetuous, Eisenhower cautious, Nixon resigned in disgrace, and Reagan was the great communicator. I therefore propose Reagan as our Republican Party exemplar.

In 1961, John Kennedy issued this mandate to the American people: “And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” John Kennedy became the darling of the American people; many around the world shared this view. We called his presidency Camelot. He was young, relatively inexperienced, but he excited the people about America’s future. He believed in the rights of man, a strong national defense, and the protection of liberty throughout the world. He believed that nuclear deterrence was insufficient to maintain peaceful coexistence. He believed the United States should be a beacon of hope, and he argued for increased world trade. He sought to achieve working partnerships with other world leaders to achieve dignity, justice, and liberty for all the people of the world. He sought to attain solidarity among the western (Atlantic) nations; he refuted communism as doomed to failure. He set forth an economic policy of unshackled enterprise, industrial leadership, and vibrant capitalism. He sought to lower interest rates in order to increase the flow of money, reduced government spending, and lower taxes. He also vowed to help small businesses through government loans and fair trade policy. Mr. Kennedy was a fiscal conservative.

Ronald Reagan was once a Democrat. He said, “I didn’t leave my party; my party left me.” We assume he spoke about the party of John Kennedy, a platform designed to inspire the American people to greatness. This was also the platform of Ronald Reagan. He repudiated the policy of Jimmy Carter; looking forward, he said, “Democratic politicians are without programs or ideas to reverse economic decline and despair. They are divided, leaderless, unseeing, uncomprehending, they plod on with listless offerings of pale imitations of the same policies they have pursued so long, knowing full well their futility.”

Reagan brought the American people a new pride in their country and themselves, their achievements and future possibilities. He wanted the American people to have liberty and freedom of choice, low taxes as a catalyst for economic growth. He repudiated the so-called Great Society because it created low human productivity. He fought for an expansion of private property ownership, committed himself to improved economic opportunities for black Americans, rights and equality for every minority, and equal opportunities for women. He was committed to the rights of unborn children.

Modern Democrats have turned Kennedy’s ideal upside down; now the cry is “Ask what your country can do for you.” Today’s Democrat pursues the politics of dependency, the essential breaking point between civil rights leaders Martin Luther King, Jr., and Jesse Jackson. King wanted black Americans to realize the reality of equality, while Jackson’s policies pursue racism, separatism, and demands for greater gifts from the government. King wanted black Americans judged according to their character; Jackson views character as secondary concern because the means justifies the end. King fought for unity, Jackson has dedicated his entire life to reverse-segregation.

Modern Republicans have broken faith with the American people. They broke their Contract with America. Much of what has happened since mid-2005 is the result of this failure. As a Republican, I bemoan a Democratically controlled Congress, but I realize that men such as Duke Cunningham brought it to fruition. But, before anyone starts gloating, we should note that the United States Congress today has achieved the low point of popular opinion; it cannot possibly get worse. Or, can it?

It is time to ask ourselves where Barack Obama and John McCain stand with regard to our exemplars of presidential character. We should assume that “Country First” is a sentiment that every patriotic American deeply subscribes; that all of us want to see positive changes for the future. That said, let us dispense with bumper-sticker ideology, and investigate the actual character of each candidate. Let us consider the deeds of these men rather than their words.

Before announcing his candidacy for the highest office, Barack Obama associated himself with socialist organizations, a peculiar philosophy that supports state or collective ownership of all property and the means of production. Since we achieve personal and national wealth through property and the means of production, Mr. Obama apparently believes than an egalitarian society is only possible when the state controls property and wealth. By extension, the State will distribute wealth according to its own priorities, and the State will achieve this through any number of programs, including taxation. Socialist programs relieve individuals of responsibility, for themselves, and for their families. We see this clearly in Mr. Obama’s platform:

Economic Policy

· An immediate energy rebate to American families

· An expenditure of $50 billion to jumpstart the economy

· Federal assistance to states and localities in education, health care, and infrastructure

· Implement the Congressional housing bill through state and local spending

· Federal investment in infrastructure to replenish highways and bridges

· Expenditures in education to replace and repair schools

· Immediate steps to stem the loss of manufacturing jobs.

· Increase employment and implementing shared prosperity.

· National health care initiatives
We should perhaps note at this point that governments do not create wealth, people do. Governments may facilitate productivity through sound economic policy, but they cannot interfere in a market economy without significant disruption to capitalist investment and diminishing personal and corporate income and profits. Barack Obama’s socialist platform is anathema to Kennedy’s economic philosophy, and may be unparalleled since the days of Franklin Roosevelt. Simply stated, responsible government cannot spend more than anticipated revenues, and it is contrary to American values to redistribute income in a free-market environment.

John McCain is a moderate conservative approximating John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. He believes that the Constitution of the United States limits the role of the federal government, and he strives to work with the Congress within a constitutional framework to improve government efficiency and reduce waste. Like Kennedy and Reagan, McCain believes that lower taxes improve productivity, and that reduced spending is fiscally responsible and economically necessary. While there are some things the federal government must do, other projects constitutionally fall within the purview of the 50 states. National defense and homeland security is something the federal government must do, but the central government must form partnerships with the states on other important human-services programs. Reflected in Mr. McCain’s platform:

Economic Policy

· Implement immediate transparency to the budgeting process

· Evaluate and reduce spending on wasteful and inefficient programs

· Empower states to improve public services

· Implement meaningful (and trustworthy) oversight of government programs

· Make government more efficient and responsive to citizen’s needs

· Prioritize spending to improve and safeguard America’s infrastructure

· Modernize Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid Programs

· Restore Social Security to a sound financial basis

· Expand opportunities to promote personal and industrial prosperity
Of these two men, which has the greatest character? Which of these candidates maintains faith with our founding principles of Constitutional Federalism, a steady hand on the tiller of state, while allowing individuals to choose for themselves their best course? John McCain is not a perfect man, nor is he without justifiable criticism of his previous positions; but John McCain is an open book. His service to his country and his associations has been honorable, and trustworthy.

Barack Obama has not been honest and forthright with the American people. He has hidden his past associations or played them down. He has defamed religious teaching through adherence to black separatist theology and racism, consorted with known terrorists, and enjoys the backing of organizations harmful to the interests and the people of the United States. As an advocate of socialist/Marxist ideology, Barack Obama is frankly, in our judgment, un-American. He falls far short of exemplars such as John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

Character matters because our nation is facing crises on several critical fronts. If we intend to resolve these problems, we must have the steady hand of true statesmanship. We must have in our president wisdom, experience, honesty, fidelity, and valor. Our president must be a man whose character is consistent with our Nation’s legacy of liberty and equality.

Every presidential election brings forth professional pundits who tell us that this election is the most important of our entire lifetime. This time, they could be right. Our selection of the right man will assure our children, and theirs, of a nation dedicated to individual liberty, prosperity, and the pursuit of happiness. If we choose the wrong man, we may very well witness an end to the United States as created by our forefathers. We are living in perilous times — there is no room for error in our selection of the 44th President of the United States.

On Election Day, one of these candidates will receive a majority of popular votes. In December, the Electoral College will validate the popular vote and confirm the identity of our next president. But this election is more than a referendum on the ability of the American voter to discern between two well-educated men. This election is rather a test of America’s ability to distinguish and reward personal character and to recognize integrity and statesmanship between one man who possesses these qualities and the other who does not.

We urge Americans to vote for John McCain. There simply is no other choice that is good for the American people, or our great country.

You can't ask BIDEN QUESTIONS?

CBS Philadelphia and ABC Florida are both cut off. Biden finished both interviews, called Obama Headquarters, and told them "Don't let ABC talk to my wife, and don't give ANY interviews to either of these stations" WHY? They asked QUESTIONS.

CBS's Station Manager was embarrassed so he didn't even run the interview again that day.....and they apologized. WHAT? Are you HEARING THIS? You can't ASK BIDEN ANYTHING?


Dean Barnett....You'll be missed

May he rest in peace. A solid Conservative columnist has succombed to cystic fibrosis.
He was a good guy, often on the Hugh Hewitt Radio Show. We'll miss him greatly.

It's FOX NEWS's fault Obama talked about redistribution of wealth in 2001..did you know that?

Meagan Kelly from FOX just interviewed Obama's PR guy.
They're very angry that the radio interview we're all hearing where Obama again called for the redistribution of wealth has had air time. It's FOX's fault.

Of course, the thinking behind that is borderline insane, but I thought this fit Priscilla's piece below quite well...........if Obama's henchmen can blame FOX for his own interview (!), can we not think of CONSPIRACY in all the points she's listed? FAR more devastating consequences could happen to America with this constant onslaught of negative news/playing with the news to tweak toward Obama, no? I think so.

UPDATE: In regard to the Obama radio tape discussed above, another Obama spokesman speaking with Meagan Kelly and Michelle Malkin on FOX just announced that "America is not that far along that journalists can ask anything they want from anyone." SINCE WHEN??

PRISCILLA's POST...she's back!! And she's RIGHT

The question is this. Has Senator McCain run a bad campaign, or has the media attempted to guide everyone to that conclusion? Was there an October Surprise? There sure was. In fact, was there a confluence of events that encompassed more than just October.
I think events had a lot to do with McCain's problems. He was beginning to gain again until a week ago, when the stock market fell 500 points in one day just as people were beginning to think the recovery was beginning to emerge.

Before the economic collapse and bailout, it was gas prices. I don't believe this is all coincidence, not just circumstances, the timing was too perfect to be sheer happenstance. It worked against McCain.

It isn’t unreasonable to assume that OPEC could have an effect on the election by lowering oil production and driving up prices. Anything negative, with a deleterious effect on Americans, would be associated with Bush, and indirectly with McCain, helped so predictably, and successfully by the Democrat and Obama drumbeat blaming the administration.

When the "drill now" campaign began and McCain adopted it, it captured the populace in a positive way. It was winning people over, and suddenly, gas prices began to drop, oil production began to rise, taking some of the steam out of the "drill now" movement and out of McCain’s campaign. The media explained it away by saying people were driving less. Maybe, partly, but we only have their word for it don’t we. Nobody I know was driving less, how about you?

We have to remember, too, that a lot of the people who don't like McCain, are disaffected Republicans. If it weren't for Sarah Palin they would have remained disaffected. Many were threatening not to vote until Palin was on the scene. Enter the Obama and media smear machine. They had to try to discredit her. It may have worked with some, but the base loves her. The fact is, she transformed the campaign.

The bottom line is, there are very powerful people with billions of dollars, including in the Middle East, who have greased the way for Obama. Six hundred million dollars worth to McCain’s eighty four million dollars. They can also have an effect on the market, big time. Be very suspicious. Their power should frighten every American.

Those huge bucks can also buy a lot of voters, put them on a lot of buses and have thousands of people at Obama's rallies. His campaign is imploring people to vote early with absentee ballots at their rallies. There is no longer a true Election Day. What's going on borders on anarchy. This election is being bought. The fact McCain is as close as he is strikes me as nothing short of miraculous.

What McCain supporters have to do is disbelieve the polls and the media. Surely the leftist media and pollsters haven’t changed their spots so close to the finish line. Why would any rational person believe them now? On the whole, true journalism is dead.

Finally, I haven't given up. Even with all this, I haven't, and neither should you.

Trust yourself, and vote.




I've asked her to contact FOX, O'Reilly, Meagan Kelly, etc etc. I know CNN won't have much to do with it; after all, the armed services usually vote Republican, so that wouldn't interest them.

Anybody have ANY SUGGESTIONS? Anybody happen to have anybody's ear who could help us??? PLEASE let me know ASAP.

Mustang has told me that it's too late for Greg's vote to be counted, but HOW? Can't they do a hand count, an X on a piece of paper..ANYTHING to get his and his friends' votes??


Please, help!! Thanks.

UPDATE: While waiting for my friend to get home so I can advise her to call her Congressman, I'm seeing THIS at an excellent blog telling us that CONGRESSMAN DOESN'T WANT HER SON TO VOTE!!! HOW IRONIC IS THIS? GREAT ADVICE, HUH? THE INMATES ARE RUNNING THE ASSYLUM, FOLKS. AND WHY ISN'T THIS PELOSI STORY IN EVERY NEWS STORY TODAY?

You might not know I'm first and second generation American. So, don't go thinking this song awakens some long dormant, California-blocked genes; I'm no Daughter of the American Revolution, TRUST me. Mom was born in Istanbul and did NOT come over on the Mayflower. (and no, I am not Turkish). However, if any of you have had naturalized parents, you know how MUCH they adore this country and Mom was no exception. I always say that, during every American holiday, Mom made the King Family Specials look under decorated compared to our house. You wouldn't have liked living through the bicentennial there, trust me. I think she got cute little door knob covers with Ben Franklin's face on them, or something. Yes, I'm kidding, but it was close to that!

Having said all this, WHY I love this song SO MUCH is beyond me......maybe it's the harmony, I'm a sucker for harmony. Maybe it's the twangy hick thing...I've always been a sucker for twangy hick country stuff. I love Leon Russell, I adore ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd. But, I love Wagner, too. Go figure. Pizza, beer, pool and a juke box with "She's got LEGS" about does it for me.

So does an evening in Vienna, Austria, seeing Wagner's RIENZI and dining afterwards in a private, mahogany-paneled dining room at the Sacher Hotel as guests of an Austrian steel magnate.

So.......THE BAND. Levon Helm on drums and vocals. And please, pay particular attention to my favorite line : "Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest, But they should never have taken the very best" Do I know why I can hardly listen to that line? No. But, it's a poignant, desperate line, to say the least, considering what happened to the South after the Civil War. (a Canadian wrote this song...go figure). I have ZERO family living in the South, we never did (haven't had TIME to, we just got here!), I am born/raised in Los Angeles, I don't know why but this music hits something deep inside..........I am only posting this because "Law and Order Teacher" posted it at his site for me and I knew I just had to have it here, too. I urge you to go to his site and read what he wrote about Teddy Roosevelt, this song, and more. You won't be sorry.

You know, I think we have some of THE finest people in the country in our corner of the blogosphere, and I thank you all for being fine people and for hanging here from time to time.

God bless you all..............and thanks to the Band. I love them. Always have.


"Oh, the games people play, every night and every day, now..."

Do you play a computer game as if you were an addict?
I do.

My addiction is ONLINE BACKGAMMON. It used to be FreeCell. I had to not only stop playing FreeCell to heal myself, but I had to take it OFF my computer! (well, Mr. Z did...most of you know how computer illiterate I am!). I am not an addictive personality, but that game really got under my skin. I'd get a phone call while at the computer doing something else, and I'd stop everything and turn on FreeCell and play while I talked. I'd play into the night. I'd play during emails. I played way, way too much! HOURS, folks.

"My name is Z and I was a FreeCell addict." I wasn't terrific at it, but I really couldn't stop! I was in a dress shop once and watched a woman playing Solitaire on her laptop. I said "You ought to try FreeCell!" and I showed her how. Today, I think about her and wonder how long it took her to get on a 12-step program. I feel guilt as sure as I'd taught her how to use a needle and syringe!

Now, it's BACKGAMMON. I like everything about it. I even like the sounds (the die roll, the click as you move, the BING! when you've won..). The trouble is the people on the phone chatting to me while I play don't much like it. "What are you DOING? What's that NOISE?" I quickly reach over and kill the sound.."nothing.......don't's nothing!" and I continue to play and talk.

I never played real,live backgammon much, though I'm from an Armenian family and Armenians like the game. My mother was a non-declared champion in these parts. I say that because Dad and Mom were once at a cocktail party where the game was being played and there was a world champion there holding court. Dad and Mom's friends goaded Mom to play because she is SO good. She won. So, I consider my mother a world champion! I don't play her because she plays for blood. Suddenly, I'm not her daughter, I'm the competition,and she yells the traditionally Turkish dice mantras like "SHESH BESH!" (she yells it pretty loudly...picture a craps player in Vegas kissing the dice and yelling "Come on, sweetie..give me snake eyes!" (or something like that!? What do I know from craps?!) Anyway, that's my mother....."SHESH BESH!" with evil in her eye and lust for the kill in her heart. I THINK "shesh besh" means "Two Sixes", but I'm not sure. I shy away from seeing my mother like that, so we don't play. Plus, it's so darned SLOW to play a real person and roll real dice, and set the game up every time you're starting a new one. Frankly, I don't even know HOW to set it up by hand, I don't know what goes where! This internet thing has taught me to play (very well, I must admit) AND it's taught me that I now have no patience for playing in person with any of us have any attention span left, anyway? At anything!?

There are international BACKGAMMON PERSONALITIES! Honestly! What's shown on each live game is what country you're playing and their level of expertise. Normally, you get about 80% ENGLISH EXPERTs. They're good players, most of them. When you see a stupid move right from the get-go, you just click off because they obviously are NOT experts, they're just having you on. And, of course, YOU are FAR too good to suffer through beginner's play!!

The Portugese, Spanish, Germans and French are EXCELLENT.....and the Dutch, come to think of it. The Turks and Greeks aren't as good as you'd think, considering that's THEIR GAME. Arabs aren't as hot as you'd think, either. As an Armenian, I get particular pleasure from beating Turks. So to speak.

The Chinese and Japanese and Koreans who call themselves BEGINNERS are the only beginners I'll play because they're NOT beginningers, they're INCREDIBLY good. Every single Japanese backgammon player I've played who listed BEGINNER has wiped me out. And, I may not be in my mother's league, but I'm very good by now.
There are pat little phrases that are available to click on; these make some mode of conversation possible between you and your opponent .... IF your opponent's got CHAT "on". It's about half-half on that. I leave mine on, what the heck? Not infrequently, you'll go on line and immediately see your new opponent's said "Nice try". They think you're the dope who was losing to them in their last game and who clicked off because the going got tough. I rarely do that, so it wasn't me! To indicate it wasn't me (and I'm on to your meaning there, wiseguy), I pick "HELLO" from the list and hope they see from that 'naive' (duh!) response that it was NOT ME. I have always found "Nice try" a little shitty, especially at the end of a game if I lost. And, of course, I wish I could write some of those little pat phrases because OH, have I wanted to use some doozies from time to time! How about "You don't have to move the playing pieces off THAT slowly and deliberately, I SEE that you got a double and you're going to win, for goodness sake, you JERK!"

Sometimes, you'll be seduced into thinking the player's a REALLY nice guy. "Hello" (I don't see the need to chat, but okay....) "Hello" I write back. I make a good move and they'll say "GOOD JOB"... "THANK YOU" I feel I should write back. SO, you're thinking "real, (too)nice person here...but are they going to talk or play?".... then you start to win. They click off. GONE. grrrr Some nice guy, huh?

The dialogue line I just don't understand is NICE ROLL. Tell me, am I supposed to say THANK YOU? How the heck can I do a NICE ROLL on purpose? It's not talent, it's TOTAL luck!! Would you say THANK YOU back? I just do that stupid happy face :-) sign to show I'm a nice person but can't think of anything to say back even if I would like to invent yet another pat chat line like "How the heck can it be a nice roll? And it was thrown by the computer, anyway, not ME, what the..?" It's fun.
So, that's my addiction. HOURS playing backgammon. Some of you who email me should understand that I'm not really sitting here just waiting with baited breath for the next email to answer, it's just that I'm here at the computer PLAYING and so I get back to you fast!! I type emails, make a move, read another, make another move..........I've got it DOWN!!

So...TELL you play a computer game? Are you addicted?


Have a Light-Filled Sunday!

Berg's Lawsuit is done, folks. So are we. But, Sarah isn't!! I'm counting on her!

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit challenging Barack Obama's qualifications to be president.
U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick on Friday night rejected the suit by attorney Philip J. Berg, who alleged that Obama was not a U.S. citizen and therefore ineligible for the presidency. Berg claimed that Obama is either a citizen of his father's native Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia after he moved there as a boy.
Obama was born in Hawaii to an American mother and a Kenyan father. His parents divorced and his mother married an Indonesian man.
Internet-fueled conspiracy theories question whether Obama is a "natural-born citizen" as required by the Constitution for a presidential candidate and whether he lost his citizenship while living abroad.
Surrick ruled that Berg lacked standing to bring the case, saying any harm from an allegedly ineligible candidate was "too vague and its effects too attenuated to confer standing on any and all voters."

Z: Can someone please tell me how a Democrat like Berg, a man of some renown, 'lacks standing'? What STANDING does he need? Would I have to be killed in the holocaust to have been a lawyer bringing NAZIS to justice in Nuremberg??

How is that first quote in GREEN given so unequivocally? Is this written by Keith Olbermann or something? WHAT??



Folks, did you read that Sarah's tired of her handlers, feels she's getting bad handling from former Bush handlers (surprise!?), and is starting to speak out relying on her instincts? She's got the same instincts most Americans have; she's a Mom and a Patriot, she's protective of her family and her country, she's got strong faith and isn't ashamed to discuss it, she wants to protect America from the bad guys (My term, not hers, but it is Sarah-esque!), she wants to TELL THE TRUTH, folks.
I say LET HER. It's about time we got some plain talking in America. It's about TIME someone called a Marxist a Marxist, a liar a liar, a cad a cad. Go, Sarah. Take Joe the Plumber with you, he speaks good American, too!


Fred Thompson...Send this around. We have a country to save, folks

This is very, very worth the small investment of time.
Here's the link for you to send to email friends...Especially Obama voters (like I have the nerve to do that and risk the wrath of the FOLLOWERS?)

Hockey Mom Does it AGAIN! Yahoo has the SCOOP!

Can Sarah Palin do NOTHING right? This was the Yahoo HEADLINE STORY tonight....really important, really damning, QUITE a story for voters to use in our voting decision. THIS is unforgivable and I am SO glad that Yahoo found it so utterly important they had to bring it to America's attention. (aren't you?)!!
So strange that Yahoo never covered the story about Sarah and CNN, isn't it? (not)

What's your caption? Here are two of mine......

It's hard to sit here in the beauty of this great country and imagine that half of its people could possibly vote for a man of such bad character, of such incredible lack of experience and so adept at lies.......who could have thought someone like Barack Hussein Obama could have come this far?
I think I'm putting aside this politics thing for a while and taking a break...Time to remember what's really important in life, knowing that what will be will be. Time to breathe deeply, gaze over this river and feel content and peaceful.
Where do you stand today?!

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Dear Mr. request........we've all wanted to ask you this and now I am......

Dear Mr. Obama,

I think I speak for a lot of us conservative bloggers as I ask you a simple question here: Would it be too much to ask you to please stop running for president? That's not asking too much, is it? You see, we're Americans and we think you've got the wrong country.

It's Venezuela and Cuba and Russia where candidates aren't properly vetted, where information is begging to be researched and the media won't. Normally, this type of ignoring of facts is with the express approval of that country's dictator's approval; it seems to me that, in this particular way, it's our media that's now the dictator running America and, you see, that's not the way it was planned. You know that. This is America. You might have got quite a different view of our history, but a liberal media running the show isn't mentioned anywhere in our history no matter what you or your professors want to believe.

We want to know about a lot of things about you, but we only have two weeks! Saul Alinksy's rules are alive and well, aren't they? You've stalled and postured long enough to where all those questions you have don't have to be answered. You're ignoring important questions, you're removing things off your website when some of us have proven you lied, you've thrown an awful lot of your best buddies under the bus and still you're so popular! As if you're not very well aware of them, I present here a list of Alinsky's basic rules, along with some comments by me confirming just how handy they've been to your campaign with David Axelrod at the helm (and God only knows who else);

"The first rule of power tactics is: power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have."

Your enemy seems to be us and we're pretty sure you're going to win because the media's made it quite clear there have never been so many voters registered (legally or not, of course, but the media doesn't seem to mind somehow) and they are implying the huge amount of votes being cast must be excited kids and other liberals who can't wait to see America run into the ground because, after all, she's way too proud and who does she think she is, anyway? Right? We think you've probably won, but this won't work, we're still voting. No matter how our media plays it, how they present the outcome.

"Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat."

The experience of your enemy, we Americans, is to show our patriotism, that's how we've always been.....suddenly, we're considered overly xenophic rubes and dopes to wear flag pins or fly the flag high! We're confused that you want to retreat from a war when America's brought such good things to this world through wars and otherwise and things seem to be going very well in Iraq. We hear 'redistribute the wealth' (your term, not ours) and we're fearful that you want something we know will fail in our dear country. Confusion, retreat, and're all over this one, aren't ya?(as Mrs. Palin would say?) The liberal white guilt mongering wasn't invented by you, but you sure did play it well.....they couldn't retreat from you, they'd be guilty of racism if they even disagree! WOW, Mr. Obama.....just wow.

"Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."

I've always had the sense that liberals think Christians must be perfect when, if you heard more than "GOD D AMERICA" in YOUR church, you'd have learned that Jesus died for our sins and He(and we) is all over the fact that none of us CAN be perfect. Something like 3 people have been killed by s0-called Christians, tragically, for having murdered abortion doctors, but you on the left draw similarities with Is lam, which in the name of its religion in the last twenty years, has killed about six thousand Americans, to say nothing of the million or so they've killed of their own religion. Yes, you can kill us with this, we know it! We know we can't live up to our book, the Bible, neither can other religions, but we are saved through LOVE and sacrifice, something no other religion has. This is probably the most tragic rule of Alinsky's for these great United States of America, founded on such excellent Judeo Christian tenets. Insult, embarrass, humiliate Christians as you leftists do and you've got nothing. Be careful what you wish for. Yes, you can 'kill them' with this, but they know this world isn't their real hope, no matter what you say.

Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage."

You and your media and other cohorts do this well, I must admit. Call Mrs. Palin terribly embarrassing things, but when she responds, you say she's 'attacking' and unfair to you. It's unbelievable how well this one works....I have to admit, John McCain's on to this one and it would be working against you if your minions weren't so far more excellent at it. You've ridiculed his age, his choice of VP's, his lack of computer skills, his supposed similarities with Mr. Bush and, every time he tries to straighten you out, you get worse and he reacts....your advantage is to belittle him more for his reaction. wow.

"The threat is generally more terrifying than the thing itself."

I don't know quite how to handle this one. You have threatened that a John McCain is another George Bush and we all know that's not that terrible, but you sure have used it to your advantage. The threat of your presidency, of course, is far more terrifying than about anything to us.

"In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt."

Yes, the country's seen you use that lipstick line so said you meant nothing by it, but then why did you hesitate long enough to get the laugh and applause? That line isn't clever in and of itself, is it! You apologized, you either said you were 'inartful' (your favorite), 'misspoke', or a 'bonehead'. Why is it that if Bush or anyone else stutters and halts and starts when he speaks, he's an inarticulate moron, but when YOU do, the media considers you 'more thoughtful'? Why is it you can just apologize for being INARTFUL and people think you're so open minded and eager to apologize that you MUST be a wonderful person? MY gosh, is that a fantastic's worked like a charm. But, only on your side, of course, you've got the media.

"Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it."

That's us. We're the target, we're conservatives, we're painted by your side as evil, we don't give a damn about anybody but ourselves, we love CEO's raking in unfair amounts of compensation (why is it okay for Raines to bring in $93 million in six years, and all the Republicans who make money are evil, anyway!?)'ve frozen us through political correctness (we can't say anything about you because then we're RACIST or BIGOTED..what rubbish...this is the place I have to include I have a slight crush on Michael Steele and 'would vote for him tomorrow' just so anybody reading this knows for CERTAIN I'm no racist, but I think I'll leave it out because people know me by now and already know that, and it's just so silly that you've forced us to include that statement every time we criticize you. (oops, I left it in by mistake) You've polarized the Left and the Right (I admit McCain's done a pretty good job of this, too, but not nearly as good as you!!) in a way that America might not recover; you see, we have never seen the basic foundation of this country so at risk, in such peril, your very existance is polarizing and paralyzing to many of us. By the way: Re: that pesky little Annenberg Foundation YOU were selected to head? We ALL noticed how you got off THAT subject, deflecting the news that you and Ayers worked closely together on sending the memo to the leftist media that said "Hey, re: the Annenbergs, remind America that they were friends of NIXON!" Done. Nobody mentions AYERS=OBAMA it's all NIXON AND ACORN! BRILLIANT ALINSKY TACTIC!

One of the criteria for picking the target is the target's vulnerability ... the other important point in the choosing of a target is that it must be a personification, not something general and abstract."

The target of US is specific; we've been made to feel vulnerable because so much of the media's in the bag for you...we can't say much without being insulted or ignored because the media won't present the truth we've discovered about few have really looked honestly and exhaustively into your background and we know how bad your character is, how much evil you can do to you've taken US, we 'persons' and your media's made us vulnerable with the constant belittling of FOX, for example, even though CNN is so far, FAR more dishonest in every presentation it makes.

"The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength."

You know exactly how McCain and Palin and we good people of America will react. YOUR major strength is knowing how badly good Americans want to keep America as it is; we all know she can be better and we'd strive for that, but America's good is the focus, the target, not a politician's good, not a liberal agenda's good, not a UN's idea of good, not the dangerous despot's view of good, not the global warming liars who can say anything they want to and get away with it while scientists who know completely different aren't even invited to conferences on warming! How metaphorical...BLOCK the enemy OUT. Goad him, get a reaction you can insult and belittle.......that IS your major strength, Mr. Obama. Get us hysterical with anger at your insults and unAmerican plans and then attack us for it. Alinsky was SOOO good!!

I didn't plan to use Alinsky as I wrote this letter to you, Mr. Obama, but it occured to me just how strong your reliance on those tactics have been and they were worth noting. The problem is that some Americans don't find his tenets the least bit wrong, and so you're not even found out, exposed and dealt with in the proper ways which could stop you in your tracks. America of even twenty years ago would have laughed your candidacy away! You know you're not experienced, you are a liar, you selected a man to run for VP who's insulted good Americans, makes constant gaffes, and someone who's at least in as bad health (when are you going to insist he releases the information about his brain scans to assure us he has no propensity for more problems when you've demanded McCain present everything he has?!) as you like to suggest McCain is. Yet, today, due to indoctrination in our schools and a majority who's got their hand out to rob from we Americans who've made successes of our lives, you're considered admirable! How much has changed in twenty years!

Anyway, we know your background, we know your birth in this country is very highly contested, we know you've never produced a true certificate of birth and that your Kenyan grandmother remembers being at the hospital in Kenya when you were born; just prove without a doubt where you were born and we'll stop asking! But, you've got two weeks and you'll probably win, so you're dragging your heels... why? We know you've squelched and insulted the excellent facts and information presented in lawsuits regarding your birth by Philip Berg and've shamed them into oblivion with "he's not part of the process". Mr. Obama, every American is part of the process at election time, and he surely deserved more respect than that.

CHARACTER has always been EVERYTHING to Americans, Mr. Obama; you have removed that wonderful, admirable trait and millions of Americans either don't care anymore about character or they want their entitlement, 'peace at any cost' agenda so badly they're somehow willing to ignore sad, what terrible damage. I could write for ten or twenty more pages but what's the point? This was just my last ditch effort to ask you to stop this silliness......and I know it won't work.

If you do win, just promise us all one thing; Please don't hurt America too much. Please don't tax my small business into oblivion, please don't insult good, honest Americans like Joe the Plumber or Sarah Palin anymore, they represent US, it hurts our feelings, we don't like a president who insults us. Please promise to cover your heart during the Pledge of Allegiance, it's something we like to do and we like our presidents moved enough by patriotism and love for country to do it automatically, too. It says a lot, stands for a lot. There are a LOT of good conservatives who have enough faith in their fellow Americans that they feel you'll lose, I hope they're right. I thank them for their enthusiasm, their comfort and their optimism....ALL of us hope you'll step down for some reason. But, anyway, all I can ask now is please........lie if you have to, make us feel you love our country. Fool us into thinking an Obama presidency won't be the end of our country as we know it, give us hope, the real, honest and good kind of hope. You're good at lying!

If you won't step down, at least try not to hurt America TOO much, okay?

Extremely Sincerely, Z

Oh, and then there is THIS, Mr. Obama.......might you cause another constitutional crisis if you're elected? Or do you care at all about the constitution?

The Media Memo....Osama wants McCAIN to win?? Since when?

Okay..for MONTHS, we've all seen Hamas and Al Aqsa Brigade and anarchists like Ayers (if you need a link on this, you've been visiting Plato for six months OR you are voting for Obama and YOU don't know who Ayers is, either!....or you ARE Obama and you don't know who Ayers is!!!!!), and on and on, all supporting Obama, right? Sure. ALL of them...the news was always "..and the LAST thing Al Qaeda wants is a McCain win because HE'S TOUGH ON TERROR!"

BUT GUESS WHAT!! 2 weeks before the election: Have you listened to the news just TODAY? All day....dribs and drabs of "And experts are now saying Al Qaeda wants McCain because ..." Well, the reason was SO stupid I can't even think of it right now! HONESTLY! (Some blog piece, huh? Hang in with me...the premise is important enough without the details, I think)

AND ARE YOU READY? (drum roll here!) Isn't it a HUGE COINCIDENCE?.......Obama mentioned TERROR for the first time..maybe EVER ...TODAY? HE MENTIONED THE TALIBAN! (no, not that he has some relative in the Taliban.... of course, who knows?... ...but I digress!!!)..... HE MET WITH HIS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISORS TODAY (none of whose names we heard, did you notice that? At least the news I heard didn't mention them!) and TODAY the media started telling us about this crush on McCain terrorists have!

SO...Let's do a recap: The media's telling us Al Qaeda is hoping McCain wins. (MEMO TO 'AMERICAN VOTER SELF': Oops! BETTER not vote for McCain!) They weren't telling us that for the last six months, SO WHAT SUDDENLY HAPPENED?!....... OBAMA met with SECURITY ADVISORS ON TERROR! TODAY!!

ALL IN ONE DAY.........WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COINCIDENCE................right? (not)




This thing is 500 feet high! It's in Singapore..............

THIS is what you sit in.......................... COULD YOU DO IT??? YIKES~!!!

Redistribution of's a tip.......

I don't know who wrote this, but it sure works.......

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.

Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept.

He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to
redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the
homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the
server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The
homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I
realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn,
but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn
even though the actual recipient deserved money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in
concept than in practical application.
or just a fools game?

The budget should be balanced, theTreasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the
assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become
bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public
assistance. -- Marcus Tullius Cicero 55 BC


WHAT an Enigma...Please, please get this information to Obama voters...TRY!

An Enigma Named Barack
by L. A. Sunset

We The People, in order to preserve a more balanced reality, are committed to learning the truth and uncovering the obscurity of a presidential candidate; a man long cloaked in a mysterious veil, and one that we presume hides the truth and distorts the true man who is Barack Obama.

Our opposition to Mr. Obama is not a factor of race, ethnic identity, nor even his place of domicile (i.e., Chicago); it is rather about his past associations, his character, his judgment, and his vision for the future of the United States of America. We believe that these are valid questions and concerns, that the American press has failed to address them in an honest and forthright manner, and that the American people have the right to know the answers to several questions.

Despite rhetoric designed to mislead and misinform the American voter, such as that Barack Obama is a political centrist; that he sincerely wants to change politics inside the beltway; and/or there is hope for a new day under an Obama administration, the issue of his past associations, statements, and activities demand greater scrutiny. We have learned that Mr. Obama’s associations have deep roots within the modern socialist movement, black separatist theology, known ties to anti-Jewish/Pro-Muslim persons, and Chicago-styled machine-politics. We believe that when combined these radical elements present a clear and present danger to American social tradition and every citizen’s quest for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The “A” list of Mr. Obama’s associates includes (but is not limited to):

William Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist, who by his own admission assures us that he did not participate in enough acts of terror to advance his cause properly, has achieve national attention.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose vile condemnations of “white America” entertained Mr. Obama for twenty years.

Rev. Louis Farrakhan (born: Louis Eugene Walcott) who, as the leader of the Nation of Islam is a racist, a black separatist, a homophobe, and an anti-Semite.

Barack Obama joined with Louis Farrakhan and Libyan leader
Muammar al-Gaddafi supporting Raila Odinga in his bid to become president of Kenya. Odinga’s political defeat resulted in Muslim violence, burning churches, murdering 1,000 anti-Odinga voters, and renewed demands for the imposition of Shari’ah Law.

Abongo (Roy) Obama, the brother of Barack, is a former Christian now radical Muslim convert, supporter of Cousin Raila Odinga. Roy Obama wants to institute Shari’ah law, wants Barack Obama to convert back to Islam and, as an American president, adopt anti-Israeli policies.

Moussa Marzook is a member of Hamas and author of the
Hamas Manifesto, first published in the Los Angeles Times and later reprinted and sold by Jeremiah Wright from the vestibule of Trinity United Church of Christ. Mr. Marzook was indicted by the United States government on issues relating to foreign terrorist activities inside the United States of America. Hamas endorsed Barack Obama for the American presidency in April 2008.

Tony Rezko gave financial backing to Barack Obama early in his to-date short-lived political career. Even though Mr. Obama plays down
the association with Mr. Rezko, it is difficult to ignore that the facts prove differently. (See also: Allison Davis, below)

Nadhmi Auchi is linked to Barack Obama through Tony Rezko. He is an Iraqi born billionaire who the U. S. government claims operated as a bagman for Saddam Hussein. He is a London-based financier, one of the world’s richest men. In 2003, he was convicted of fraud involving the “Elf Affair,” Europe’s largest scandal since the end of World War II.

Allison Davis, former employer of Barack Obama, who later closed his law firm and became a partner of Tony Rezko. Davis
assigned Mr. Obama to legal work on behalf of Mr. Rezko.

Rev. James T. Meeks, whom Barack Obama regularly sought for counseling, who served as an Obama delegate at the Democratic Convention and is a long-time political ally, who aided Obama as an influential black supporter, received funding from Tony Rezko. Meeks is known for anti-Jewish and homophobic rhetoric.

Rashid Khalidi, along with William Ayers and Barack Obama, is a former professor at Chicago University. He directs the Palestine Press Agency in Beirut, is an agent of the Arab American Action Network, and according to
a top official of former-President George H. W. Bush and a former CIA intelligence officer, former Weather Underground
leader William Ayers funneled money to Khalidi, who maintains ties with the Palestine Liberation Organization. Khalidi also received $70,000 from the Woods Fund, and held fund-raising events in his home on behalf of Barack Obama.

Barack Obama is a former director of
The Woods Fund, a non-profit organization that, in addition to its interests in “giving a voice to less advantaged people,” helped funnel money to Rashid Khalidi for the Arab American Action Network, which presumably includes Palestinian interests within the United States. The Woods Fund also helps to finance “community organizing, and public policy.”

Created in 1995 to help raise funds to reform Chicago public schools, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge involved William Ayers as a leading founder, who in turn appointed Barack Obama to its board of directors. Mr. Obama served on the board for
six years. According to investigative journalist Stanley Kurtz, writing for the
Wall Street Journal, reforming Chicago public schools is a bid misleading: it was a program designed to radicalize students more than it was to educate them. According to Ayers, “Teachers should be community organizers, dedicated to provoking resistance to American racism and oppression.”

Astute Bloggers has illustrated additional past associations; it is a well-researched expose providing a clear view of what lays just beneath the surface of Obama’s deception. We understand why Mr. Obama would want to play down these associations; we do not understand why the American news media would assist him in doing so. Nevertheless, Astute Bloggers lifts the veil on two well-known groups: The New Party, and the Chicago Democrat Socialists of America. Let's take a closer look.

The New Party is an obscure, lesser-known political group. It practices a political strategy called electoral fusion, which entails placing a political candidate on several lines of the same ballot. An example of how electoral fusion works is located at this page; look for the lead “Vote your values,” two-thirds of the way down on the right-hand side of the page. Once a candidate receives the support of Democratic kingmakers, and if the New Party feels the candidate will serve their socialist cause, they will add the candidate's name more than once in order to gain votes that are more popular. From the above link:
The New Party is an umbrella organization for grassroots political groups working to break the stranglehold that corporate money and corporate media have over our political process.

Our current work and long-term strategy is to change states' election rules to allow fusion voting - a method of voting that allows minor parties to have their own ballot line with which they can either endorse their own candidates or endorse the candidates of other parties. Through fusion, minor parties don't have to always compete in the winner-take-all two party system and can avoid "spoiling" - throwing an election to the most conservative candidate by splitting the votes that might go to two more progressive candidates (ours and another party's).

Not surprisingly, “community organizing” is the bedrock of The New Party; socialist progressivism is their ideology. The Chicago chapter maintains a close relationship to the Associations of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). According to this 1996 publication, Barack Obama is clearly affiliated with The New Party

Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last spring and face off against Republican opponents on Election Day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate), and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).

Note: Readers familiar with Chicago politics will recognize the names of former Chicago mayor Danny Davis on that list also.

From this evidence, we begin to understand the role electoral fusion played in Mr. Obama’s rapid rise to political power.

Chicago Democrat Socialists of America pursues socio-political programs implied by the title of their organization, but even this organization is more than meets the eye. Cornel West, while serving as an Honorary Chair to Chicago DSA penned a remarkably revealing essay entitled
Toward a Socialist Theory of Racism. Chicago DSA and Dr. West were particularly interested in Barack Obama because of his New Party affiliation, his success in running for State senator, and the strategies he employed, to wit: “Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.”

Well, so what if Barack Obama peaks the interest of the Chicago DSA? It is important because no one backs a dark-horse candidate unless there is a chance he will win, and/or there is a reasonable expectation for a return of political capital. In an article entitled,
The End of Liberalism socialist author Daniel Cantor wrote, “A massive Times-Mirror poll registered 53% of the public in favor of a ‘major third party,’ so there's no doubt that the soil is fertile. Among the hopeful contenders is the ‘New Party,’ one of a handful of newly forming independent, progressive parties in the country. New Party chapters have backed 93 candidates in nine states over the last eighteen months and won 62 elections.” An index of New Party political propaganda is available, here.

Daniel Cantor, of course, is the executive director of New York’s Working Families Party, another socialist group with chapters in Connecticut and Oregon. He urges socialists, “Vote Your Values.” This would appear to be good advice for everyone with values.

John Nichols writes for The Nation, a politically progressive publication. Nichols is a well-established writer, perhaps best known for ad nausium demands for the impeachment of George W. Bush for war crimes and other frivolous reasons; so much for his credibility.

Taken by themselves, none of these concerns will alter the course of human history. After all, as Americans, we encourage political and social discourse; we value the right of everyone to express an opinion, no matter how insane that opinion may be, and all of us have the right to associate with anyone we choose. Yet it is instructive to note that socialist radicals have completely infiltrated the Democratic Party, and we need no further proof than the inane rhetoric emanating from every Democrat in the House and Senate. The concern expressed in this essay is not that other ideas are unworthy of debate; it is rather that Barack Obama freely decided to associate with dangerously radical and disreputable influences and he now seeks to hide those associations.

Why would he do that? Barack Obama wants to become our next president; he knows that most Americans repudiate Marxist/socialist ideology; he is aware that if most voters begin to see the real Barack Obama, John McCain will win the election. But we believe that Barack Obama has been dishonest with American voters who are capable of thinking. We believe he has taken advantage of Americans voters who are incapable of thinking. We believe that if Mr. Obama stepped up to a microphone and told us what he really believes, he would be lucky to win the post of an Animal Control Specialist.

Honesty, truthfulness, clarity, judgment, motivation, patriotism, and common sense are all important attributes for the office of the President of the United States. We do not believe that Barack Obama has any of these qualities. And, if Mr. Barack Obama has been less than truthful about his associations, what makes anyone think we can trust his campaign promises, his vision for America? The fact is that every man is free to associate with whomever he pleases; but this does not protect any man from judgments about those associations. We believe that the sheer weight of Mr. Obama’s involvement with questionable individuals and organizations will lead a reasonable person to query both his judgment and motivation for nefarious associations.

We the People of the United States, who are also a loose confederation of bloggers, categorically reject Barack Obama for president. He is a radical socialist, he is a black separatist, a racist, he harbors pro-Muslim/Anti-Jewish sentiments and associates, he identifies with homophobes, convicted swindlers, known terrorists, creative financiers, and he has already signaled his willingness to sacrifice National Security for a dialogue with Muslim fanatics.

We cannot vote for this man. We urge you to join us in defeating Barack Obama. So say us one, so say us all.
