Merry Christmas!!

As we enter the final week of a wild 2008, I just wanted to take pause to speak on a few things.

First, and foremost, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I hope today's events lifted your spirits and gave you reason to once again be thankful for all of your blessings.

In this fast-paced, reaction over response society, we are allowing too much of what is on the news to determine our spiritual, emotional, and relationship well-being. We panic because th Dow keeps going down. We cringe each time another business goes belly-up. We dig our nails into the arms of the chair we are sitting in whenever we hear the words "bail out."

Since the bubble burst in September, the country has become psychologically depressed, which has led to a vicious cycle that is worsening the problem. We let the repetitive news cycle destroy our collective, and individual, psyche. We have let the noise drown out the truth...that we are really, truly, okay.

If you are reading this, be thankful. You have access to electricity, and the luxury...yes, luxury...of internet access. If your stomach is not turning and growling like a caged animal, be thankful. You have access to food. If you tell someone that you agreed with or disagreed with in this, or any other blog, be thankful. You have someone to talk to. If you have to pause while reading this because of a doorbell or phone ringing, be thankful. You have people who want to reach you, and you have a place at which you can be reached. If the kids won't go to bed tonight because they are still excited about what they got this morning, be thankful. You made a child's day and were able to share time with people.

We are not in a Great Depression. We are just depressed.

For the rest of the holiday season, re-ignite your loves...your family, your hobbies, your friendships. Turn on the TV for only the local weather, or better yet, just click over to or and get your weather forecast. Ignore the news for the rest of the year. Then, turn on the TV on the 31st to count down to a new year...a new beginning.

If you end 2008 on that note, regardless of you job situation, your 401K situation, or your investment situation...if you invest yourself into your loves, 2008 will definitely end on a high note for you.

Merry Christmas! God Bless us all this holiday season!

War! What is it good for?...

Let me tell you a story about sacrifice, terror, honor, pride, and the righting of wrongs.

On a bright, sunny morning, while the world was just barely waking up, terror in the skies came barrelling down on America.

Buildings fell, humans burned and died in the horrible attacks.

We were hit by a small country, part of the Axis of Evil. They struck us fast, hard, and by suprise. We had people who might have seen it coming, but predicting the day time and location of the attacks was nearly impossible.

Immediately after the slaughter of American lives, we went to action. We went after the country that hit us. We bombed the crap out of them and paid them back. Death and war is never pleasant, but this was revenge. They had awaken a dangerous, powerful beast that was lulled to sleep by peace and its own power. We went to work to kick their hind parts into oblivion.

Then, we also went to work on an ally who had similar intentions for us. While they had not directly attacked us, we knew they were coming and we had to stop all of this evil force at once. We were hit hard by their little buddy, and we were sure as we could that we needed to stop everyone who had destruction and violence planned against us and our people.

We beat the two countries into submission. We defeated the evil powers. Then, we went to work rebuilding the same countries. In time, they became as strong, if not stronger, in many areas than the United States.

We are a powerful country who reacted to a swift and painful blow to push evil back and out of power. We restored the people of those countries to power and helped them prevent future dictatorships from returning.

Now, as you read the above, today, the somber anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor, were you thinking of World War II...or the current War on Terror? Whenever you want to trash our country for going into Iraq, remember: Germany never attacked us, either.

We are a great country. We have the greatest military. Our troops are excellent. They always have been. They always deserve our support.

Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

The country of India suffered through and extraordinary ordeal with the attacks on several tourist attractions. The financial district of Mumbai was the central location of the attacks, as it appeared as though the terrorists were targeting American and British tourists and the attractions and hotels frequented by them.

Americans, Brits, and many other people lost their lives in the terrible attacks. My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones, and also to the people who narrowly escaped with their lives, as their lives will never be the same.

Sadly, I think this might be the beginning of a long sequence of attacks by Al Queada led or inspired groups. For seven years, America has stood strong against Al Queada and terrorism. We have snuffed it out at every opportunity. However, the 2008 election cycle broadcast to the world, there might be some wavering in our stances, regardless of who won. Whether it was John McCain breaking his back to work with the Democrats, or the weak, inexperienced Obama (whom even his running mate Biden said was inexperienced and would be tested within 6 months).

Sadly, I truly believe that Mumbai is the tip of the iceberg. The pending closing of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, a promise of the Obama campaign, is going to release 200+ terrorists back in to the fold, all of whom will be able to lead and spread anti-American propaganda to reinvigorate our enemies. This rejuvenation of released terrorists, along with constant anti-American comments from Democratic leaders of the past 6 years, has prepared the terrorists of the world to get us while we are at our weakest.

Obama wants to meet, without preconditions, with the leaders of these terrorist organizations. He will most likely bring them here, thus giving diplomatic immunity. Who knows what can happen with an anti-American terrorist with immunity?

I wish the best to the people who have been affected by the Mumbai tragedy. I sincerely hope the people responsible will me swift and appropriate justice...which means they have to have justice served before 12:00 noon on January 20th, 2009.

Black Friday Tragedy

On November 28, 2008, in the early morning hours, a seasonal worker at Wal Mart was killed by a herd of stampeding morons. People looking to get a great deal on a TV killed a man, without a second look.

Jdimytai Damour, 34, was trampled to death by a herd of self-centered, senseless, spineless idiots. Damour, up early for work, trying to earn a living, was killed because 500 people refused to utilize any form of self control.

I hope that the police spend months analyzing the tape, and then charge every person on that tape with Manslaughter. Every person who walked in that store and stepped on, or over, Damour, should be charged.

There is no excuse. There is no reason this man should be dead. There is no possible way to excuse oneself for stepping on a man and walking past as if nothing happened. This man died because of greed and selfishness. One family will celebrate Christmas with an empty chair because 500 people couldn't wait 10 more seconds to save $10.

The thing that adds to my anger and frustrations is the fact that many pro-union groups are trying to capitalize on the tragedy. They claim Wal Mart should unionize, because a Union would have had done something to prevent this. Perhaps, but there are still tragedies like this in Unionized businesses. It is just another way that Unions are trying to grab power.

GM, Chrysler, and Ford are all begging for cash from Congress because of out of control Unions. So, in my opinion, Unions are the last thing Wal Mart needs. More Unions are the last thing America needs right now.

The REAL problem is the people. The people who storm upon stores at abnormal hours. The people who FIGHT, literally, over toys and cameras and TVs. The people who stomped a man to death in their greed to save a few dollars.

You can toss some blame on the store for not getting some security in place when they saw the hoard outside. You can blame the store and the police for not keeping order, even after the police were on scene BEFORE the doors opened and the tragedy happened. However, we need to have the film analyzed, re-analyzed, and then all the faces tracked down and charged with Manslaughter. Perhaps the police on Long Island need to make some examples of these people.

Most of the savings that motivate these massive crowds are for presents to be placed under the tree. A lot of people are purchasing items for themselves, also, but the majority is for giving. Sadly, we have lost the beauty and true meaning of the season, and of giving. This loss of the real meanings of the season and of giving was never more prevalent than on Friday, November 28, 2008.

It has been a while...My Apologies...

For the last 3 weeks or so, I have been sulking, politically, and busy, professionally, thus preventing more of my words of mediocrity from appearing on this blog site. I apologize to my hundreds of readers for my delays in getting back to you, both on here, and through the many emails you have sent.

So, let me recap what has gone on since I last posted.

We are gearing up for a new Clinton administration, a third term for Bill and Hillary's people. Barack even admitted that he was intentionally hiring former Clinton people because he wanted experienced people on his staff. However, with Hillary the most likely Secretary of State, and Bill publicly stating interest in a job in the president-elect's cabinet, America is entering into the 1990's all over again. Higher taxes are on the way! Oh, and in bad news for the economy, this Clinton regime will not have the internet boom fall into its collective lap this time around.

Congress, with their 59 Democrats in the Senate, is spending like there is no tomorrow. Since some of our Republican friends thought that acting like a Democrat and spending more than we have was how to get re-elected, we have no one left to fight for spending control. Except when it comes to the military. They are all for gutting the military...similar to what happened 10 minutes after Bill took office in 1993. Then, for 8 years, our weakened military was unable to fight off terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, two US Embassies in Africa, and the USS Cole. (The same military and defense cuts led to our vulnerability to the 9-11 attacks.)

Everyone from the city of Chicago (fully under the impression of the buddy-boy network now that their puppet is the president-elect), to the state of Cahl-EEE-foh-nee-yah; from the mom and pop candy store to the biggest automakers in the United States; are all asking...or, begging...for a big slice of the open flood of money from Washington. It is downright sad. There is such a panic over the economy, 99% of which is exacerbated by the 24-hour, repetitive news cycle, that everyone is making a run on any money they can get their paws on, no one taking a moment to really think of where this money is coming from, or what the price is going to be in the long run.

The one bright spot of the 2008 elections, well, the one successful bright spot, if you will, was Saxby Chambliss fending off the millions of Obama-aid send to Georgia to reclaim his seat in the Senate, thus preventing the filibuster-prof majority for the Democrats. Saxby will be looked to for leadership and strength, as he is one of the few Republicans to be able to return to Washington in January. Saxby won by double-digit margins, thus preventing a drawn-out, lawsuit-filled holiday season, as there would assuredly be suit after suit after suit should the polls have been withing 5 points. So, Saxby Chambliss is the one hero that Republicans can look to for the next couple of years. He fought the "Obama-mania media" and the Liberals from NYC to LA to win back his seat.

Next, I want to address the pseudo-controversy surrounding Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell. His comments about Janet Napolitano, Obama's pick to head Homeland Security. The same media who criticized Sarah Palin for having 5 kids is now attacking Rendell for his comments. He made a comment, that was unknowingly picked up by a nearby live mic, that said that since Napolitano does not have a family, she is a great pick for the job, because she can devote 19-20 hours a day to the job. To me, Rendell was only repeating the logic that many used to attack Sarah Palin. Now they are upset at this logic? In addition, this comment was not sexist, as many are purporting to be. The quote was, "Janet's perfect for that job. Because for that job, you have to have no life. Janet has no family. Perfect. She can devote, literally, 19-20 hours a day to it." The only reference to her gender came in the form of pronouns used instead of her name. There was no reference to her gender other than that. It just goes to show how sensitive and ready to pounce people are today. Everyone is looking for a reason to get mad at someone.

Previously in this piece, I referred to Chambliss as the 'one successful brightspot' in this year's campaign cycle. There can be arguments as to how successful she was, but the fact is she did not get elected. And I do blame her running mate as much as I do the left-wing media that actively campaigned for her opponents. I am talking, of course, about the "breath of fresh air," Governor Sarah Palin. She was the bright spot to outshine all bright spots. She, and she alone, carried John McCain to a lead in September. Then the financial crisis hit, and then the media put the blame solely on the Bush Administration, and that proved to be too much for even the bright-eyed, intelligent, strong Conservative leader Palin.

However, I do believe that Sarah Palin may well repeat her own Modus Operondai come 2012. If you know much about her, you know that before winning the Governorship, Palin did lose a bid to become Lieutenant Governor her first time around. So, perhaps, in 2012, it is time for her to take a step up, much as she did in Alaska. A Palin-Romney ticket sounds great to me. Or, perhaps, Sarah Palin-General David Petraeus ticket? Okay, I am stretching it there, but Petraeus has climbed about as high as anyone can in the military. In four years, he may want to climb to a higher office.

It has been a hard month to swallow. It sickens me how much of a rock star our president-elect is. He is not a leader. He was not elected to be a leader. He is simply installing Clinton Administration 2.0, then going around talking good. However, Saxby Chambliss helped America avoid sheer disaster, and may just be enough for us to limp to the 2010 mid-terms, where I hope people like Sarah Palin are the face of the party, and not these middle of the road phonies who think Republicans need to lean left, instead of the Democrats leaning from the FAR FAR FAR left toward the center.

I am hopeful.

I do want to add that I had a lot of ground to cover in this piece, and I did not want to include the Black Friday tragedies and the India Terrorist Attacks in with this litany of commentary. I will discuss those events in coming blogs. Thank you for your time!

Race in the Election

In my previous blog, I discussed the idea that Barack Obama was elected simply by the ideals of Affirmative Action.

Race was never an issue in the Democratic Primaries, nor in the National Race, until Obama, himself, or mouthpieces in the Democratic party, played the race card.

It truly saddens me that the first black president was elected in that manner. I hate that he was elected simply based on the color of his skin. Not one Obama voter truly took into consideration the content of Obama's character, for if they had, they might not have voted for him.

We do not know who Obama really is. He talked a great game for 2 years, but he will not be able to back it up. Not in the least.

Barack Obama will be a colossal failure as President of the United States of America.

That saddens me.

I love all people. I love blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanics...all people. I want to support my black friends in their celebration of a Black President. I do.

However, I am sad for them. Barack Obama will be a failure. All of the celebration will be for naught when we enter another Great Depression, courtesy of Obama's tax hikes, and the expiration of the Bush Tax Cuts. Spending will go through the roof, even higher than it is currently. Jobs will be lost in record numbers. Our very civilization could start flirting with complete and utter collapse over the next four years, if we do no get more conservatives in the House and Senate.

I know that Black people got on board with this exciting idea of finally getting the White House. I just wish they would have gotten behind someone with true leadership abilities, the political clout and capital to enact change, and the wisdom to part with popular ideas and forge ahead with what is right.

Instead, we have a man with no real successes in life other than running three successful campaigns, and writing two memoirs. We have a man that has never stood up to Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid. We have a man that has never said no to anyone in his party.

I truly wanted to see a Black President, someday. Just not this one. Just not someone who will be such a colossal failure. Just not someone who very well could ruin our country's economy and national security.

A friend of mine sent me a forwarded text that greatly offended me, and showed me even more how this election went to Obama for the wrong reasons. The text read, "They did not want to give us 40 acres and a we will take 50 states and a White House." It offended me because I had nothing to do with slavery, and I have always spoken against slavery. I had no hand in that mess, yet now, I have to have this taunt thrown in my face?

It saddens me that his election was solely about race. It was about throwing the first black guy in the White House that we could. Black people, whether you know it or not, in 4 years, you will be set back 20 years.

11-4-08...The Saddest Day in Black American History

In the 1960's, the honorable Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr., marched and preached. He fought and tried to lead Black Americans to a better day and time. He wanted to lead Black America to a brighter, better future. As he said, he wanted people to be "judged by the content of their character," and not "by the color of their skin."

Sadly, since an assassin's bullet ended Dr. King's life, Black America has lost their way.

Black America has few Black Americans who are truly leading their culture. The only leaders in the Black Community who get respect are those that cow-tow and humble themselves at the alter of Liberal Whites.

Liberal Whites are concerned with Black people only at election time. They promote the idea that Blacks are unable to succeed in life only because of Conservative Whites. Liberal Whites use Black Americans that will spew the same nonsensical garbage that they are. Black people are only a tool that Liberals use to get power, then forget about until election time.

It is so sad the fact that a man like Dr. King was assassinated. I truly think his death hurt America, black and white, more deeply than we can fathom. I wish Dr. King had lived and young black people for the last 2 or 3 generations could have truly learned what this man was REALLY about.

Dr. King would not support an insulting measure like Affirmative Action. To him, a man that was about character and decency and work ethic, Affirmative Action, the idea that a person of color was given a position, job, or perk simply because of their color, and not based 100% on merit and success, Dr. King would have been appalled at the idea.

Affirmative Action cut the legs out from under so many good, hard-working black people, as well as people of different ethnicities. Affirmative Action helped re-solidify racial divides. So many whites felt, and quite a few justifiably-so, that their work and success was made worthless when a person of a different race was competing for the same thing. Furthermore, many blacks who did, in fact, clearly earn their spot were categorized as an "affirmative action" success, instead of being credited with earning the spot. Affirmative Action deleted so much of a hard-working African American's efforts.

Affirmative Action was the biggest insult to African Americans, and the Liberals and Democrats laughed all the way back to their offices in D.C.

Fast forward to 2008. This is the year the Civil Rights Movement took a big punch to the gut. This is the year a man was elected courtesy of Affirmative Action.

Barack Hussein Obama was not elected on merit, ability, or track record. He was not elected for having a real plan for bettering our country. Barack Hussein Obama did not EARN his way to becoming President of the United States.

He was given the job to meet an ugly quota.

No one on the Republican side of the ticket even hinted at the fact that Obama was different looking. They never even brought up his middle name. John McCain went over and above the normal call of duty to ensure that there were no possible way his campaign could be called racist.

The only people that wanted to make sure you knew he was black were Obama himself, and the rest of the Democratic Party. Black law makers from South Carolina to New York and California, and everywhere in between, made sure to point out that Barack was black. Black law makers in the south even called McCain and Sarah Palin racists and compared them to segregationalist George Wallace.

James Carville, among other leading Democratic/Liberal mouthpieces, threatened and warned of riots in the streets, should Obama lose. Black leaders said a vote against Obama was a vote for racism. Time and time again, the CLEAR message, from Barack and the Democrats, was that not voting for the black guy made you a racist.

I work with children for a living. The evidence of this ideal, that voting against Obama was a racially motivated act, came to me tonight at the mall. I was shopping with some of my youth, and one noticed a t-shirt, one that I would have purchased if I could find my size. The t-shirt read: Don't Blame Me...I voted for John McCain.

The youth I was standing with noticed the shirt, then remarked, "Oh, my gosh!!! This is terrible! Look at this really racist t-shirt! What a racist thing to say!"

The 8th grade boy, who is a red-headed white boy, was incensed that such a t-shirt was being sold. He truly believed that the shirt was racist.

This young boy got the message, even if adults refuse to acknowledge it.

Obama was elected because people were made to feel guilty, and feel that they HAD to vote for the guy simply because he was black, and they did not want to feel like a bigot.

Affirmative Action just elected us a President. When he fails, and he will fail, it will be the biggest setback to the Civil Rights Movement since Dr. King was killed.

100th POST!!!! Making the Case Against Barack Obama

Today, I will address the current ideals surrounding the state of affairs in the Presidential Election. I think that this election is very important, and I think far too many Americans are taking this very nonchalantly and not truly vetting their choice.

First thing I want to address is the accusation of negativity. Why is it that McCain's negative ads are all people remember? No one remembers that Obama attacks McCain, also, as much as possible. The fact is, there are no radical associations or dangerous decisions that McCain has made that would warrant an attack ad. Instead, people like Barbara Walters and Joy Behar on The View, people on CNN, MSNBC, and hundreds of "I am rich, so listen to my opinion as if it were the Gospel" Hollywood buffoons constantly hint at McCain's age as being a factor. MSNBC allowed an ad to run that attacked McCain's skin cancer scare of a few years ago. Democratic politicians come out and accuse McCain of being racist and comparing him to George Wallace.

Yet, only Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly condemn those attacks. Obama would not even distance himself from the comparisons made between McCain and Wallace. McCain gave Obama the chance at the last debate, but Obama decided, instead, as always, to point the finger at McCain and the right wing. Obama knows McCain is not racist, yet Obama refused to set the record straight. He refuses to go against his party.

Yet, McCain rips the mic away from a supporter for trying to insult Barack Obama and call him a Muslim...he grabbed the mic away and corrected her, on the spot, without pause. But Barack Obama cannot set the record straight on the racism allegations made by his own party's elected officials? And McCain is the negative one?

Now, the left wingers are having a field day with the cost of Sarah Palin's new campaign wardrobe. They scoff at it's estimated $150K price tag. They attack her as being a phony and an elitist. They say she is not in touch with the middle class as she says she is. They attack her for getting a new wardrobe for the campaign trail.

Has there ever been a question about how much Obama's or Biden's, or even McCain's, suits cost? Has there ever been a question about any other candidate's wardrobe costs? No.

This is a sexist attack by the left. Palin did not go shopping and send a bill to the RNC. The RNC bought the wardrobe for her. She is giving the wardrobe to charity once she is done with it.

How is the cost of a wardrobe for the campaign trail a viable issue for the election? If it can be used to smear a Republican, by gosh, its fair game!

As far as the attack ads coming from the Republicans, all McCain and the Right Wing have done is do what the media should...ask questions about Obama's history. If I had no risk of anyone looking into my past and fully vetting me out, I could say anything that people wanted to hear just to get elected.

My biggest problem with Obama are the holes in his history (he is the first modern-day candidate NOT to release his birth certificate...and we know nothing, cannot even find his senior thesis, about his college years other than the fact that he went there..), and the fact that time and time again, he has to distance himself or clarify himself where it relates to important people in his life, past and or present.

The Ayers questions are valid. Ayers' living room was the launch pad for Obama's political career. That is a FACT. Ayers may have been a terrorist when Obama was 8, but he still preaches, under the guise of college professor, much of the same anti-American and anti-government propaganda as he did then. In 2001, Ayers claimed in the New York Times that he and the Weather Underground had done more...eerily, the comments were published on 9-11-01. Obama wrote a blurb for Ayers' book. You don't put your name on someone else's work unless you trust them and know them...or are a complete naive buffoon...and, in either case, as it relates to a man who preaches the outrageous ideals Ayers preaches, it shows a lack of ability and readiness to lead a nation.

As for Reverend Wright, you cannot spend 20 years in the pews of a church with a pastor you do not agree with. You do not let a preacher who spews hatred and racism and anti-Americanism from the pulpit marry you and baptize your children, unless you somewhat agree with him.

Let me ask you this...

If John McCain had spent any significant time in the same room, even if it was a coincidental passing in a hotel lobby, as Tim McVeigh or Ted Kazynski (Una bomber), would he race be close today?

If John McCain had spent just 5 years in a church the featured a preacher who even once made reference to race, or to the fact that America's chickens where coming home to roost in reference to the 9-11 attacks, where would this Presidential race be?

If McCain had similar connections to radical ideals and thoughts like Obama does...would the race be nearly this close?

Next, why is everyone so bent on the idea that Sarah Palin is inexperienced and unqualified? She has executive experience, unlike any of the 3 men on the ballot. She has run a town and a state. She has had to make executive decisions that determine people's future. She has not been part of a decision-making body where your decisions get lost in the shuffle, like Congress. Besides, she is the second on the ticket...not the first.

If you want to talk about her inexperience, why, then is it unfair to question Obama's? I cannot remember whom of my respondents said it, but the idea that questioning what Obama has done and has not done was not constructive. Yet, questioning Palin, who has more experience as a leader than Obama, is fair game.

Obama's political career to the White House includes no major accomplishments, other than speaking well enough to get elected to a new office. He has not had a news-worthy battle for a bill or ideal. He has gone with his party without much resistance. He has only disagreed with George Bush...never has taken a stance against his own party. What has he really done to prove he is ready to lead from day one? He cannot even be a leader in his own party.

Obama does not have the experience or the mettle to lead from day one. Even his running mate said that the world knows that Obama is not ready...they are going to take advantage of Obama's inexperience. There will be a new crisis once Obama takes office...meaning that our enemies know he is not ready.

The question, then, is, who is going to get hurt because of this world-wide perception of Obama's weakness? Can we afford to find out?

What WE have to do...

The fact of the matter is, the nation is divided.

Over the last 6 years, since Democrats stopped being pro-American and being pro-Democrat, the liberals in the media and in elected office have been attacking American unity. They were courteous enough to shut up for a few months post-9/11, but then they saw opportunity.

They saw a chance to seize power by attacking every policy of the Bush anti-terrorism initiative. They attacked out troops. They accused American troops of torture, murdering civilians, pillaging villages, and generally being poor-class and fighting dirty. Our fighting men and women have been attacked, insulted, berated, and accused of unthinkable war crimes....BY OUR OWN CONGRESS AND LEADERS!

It is sad that our enemies have used the words of our own elected officials as recruiting materials and as anti-American propaganda. Our troops are entering greater and greater danger in Afghanistan, as they were in Iraq pre-McCain-supported troop surge, because of the propaganda provided by AMERICAN DEMOCRATS.

Remember, post-Vietnam, NO CONSERVATIVE...NO REPUBLICAN...stood in lines to spit on and attack our troops returning from war. No CONSERVATIVE has ever given anti-American fodder for the recruiting propaganda of terrorist enemies.

So, since early 2002, less than half a year since the worst attack on American soil, DEMOCRATS have been attacking everything in sight to divide the country and fortify that division. The sides are almost irreparably divided; in fact scarily so.

The point being, there is nearly zero chance that we can change the minds of the Obama-maniacs who drank the kool-aid served by the media and Obama himself. We cannot get liberals or Democrats to drop their blind love and devotion to Obama. It is not going to happen.

So, how do we keep the White House and, possibly, reverse the growing liberal power in Congress?


We, the American conservatives, we must VOTE.


Tell people who and why we are voting for.

We must VOTE!

The media is spinning the early voter turnout as a trend for an Obama slaughter of McCain. They are popping champaign in the offices of NBC and CNN, already claiming Democrat victory and a new Super Majority in Washington, DC.

We have to show them how wrong they are. America is an overall conservative nation. We have to get our conservative majority motivated and out to the polls.

Whether we win or lose, we have to go down with a fight. We have to go down swinging, if it is in the cards for ACORN's tactics to win, we cannot sit idly by and guarentee a default victory for Obama.

We need to vote. Make our voices heard! We need to fight until the end of voting.

In the words of the immortal Coach Jim Valvano, "Never give up. Don't ever give up"

If you can get motivated, and motivate more conservative-minded people to show up and vote, at the end of the day, we might just suprise the liberals celebrating Obama's victory already.

Let Me Get This Straight...

Recently, on my page and my page, I posted a challenge to Obama supporters to answer three simple questions. The three questions asked for one major accomplishment that Obama has acheived, why raising taxes in a struggling economy is a good idea, and about his plan for the Iraq war.

Suprisingly, I did get intelligent, well-written, well-thought-out responses. However, the responses were more full of holes than a truck full of Swiss Cheese.

About the accomplishment portion, Obama has put three bills to committee. None were ever voted on, they just went to committee and died. So, his only accomplishments are: befriending a radical terrorist who launched his political career, then he got elected. Oh, and he has written two memoirs.

Memoirs about what? What did he do in his life worth remembering? Other than talking well enough to get people to vote for him?

This man has accomplished NOTHING, other than being an elected person. Nothing.

Secondly, about the tax plan, the responses offered links to pages that are either Obama's own site, or notoriously Obama-supporting media site (Newsweek, Time, NY Times, NBC, etc.).

Third, the Obama war plan, according to his own site, differs not with the current plan in action. His war plan is almost a copy and paste from the General David Petraeus plan. It is almost a mirror image of the current plan. Read his website! I am not exaggerrating. He is saying what people want to hear on the stump and in the news bits, but on his own website he, by plagerizing the current war plan, fully supports the war operations as they stand now.

Runningmate Joe Biden recently stated to donors and liberal supporters that a new President Obama will be tested. He warned that within the first six months of the new administration a generated crisis will test Obama. He went on to say that, in the view of those liberal supporters, Obama may not be responding to the situation appropriately. He begged that they use their influence and power to support Obama in this 'incorrect' response.

This means three things...Biden knows what I, and millions of conservatives, already know.

1) Obama is NOT READY. The world knows it. Our enemies and would-be enemies know it. The world is waiting to take advantage of it. They are going to make a crisis to take advantage of the weak, inexperienced Obama.

2) Senator McCain, for all his faults, is ready to answer that call and crisis. McCain doesn't need to beg Americans to support him when he makes the decisions to answer any international, or domestic, crisis.

3) Last, and most importantly, liberals, independents, disappointed Republicans thinking of going left or sitting this one out all need to realize this. For all the rhetoric, all the speeches, all the talk, all the promises, all the flip-flops...Obama and Biden know that if this said crisis takes place, Obama will have to do exactly what the Bush Administration would do...exactly what a McCain Administration would do...or else invite more crisees.

Biden, who has admitted that Hillary Clinton would have been a better VP Candidate, has not answered a question from the press since September 10. He still manages to get his foot in his mouth regularly. Biden has just admitted that America's enemies are drooling at the proposition of making their moves when Obama takes office.

Here are just a few of the possibilities that Biden is warning us about...these will take place right around or on January 20, 2009.

Putin is ready to move into Georgia...

Hugo Chavez, a friend of Obama buddy William Ayers, is ready to move into Cuba...

Ahmadinejad will, along with his Syrian allies, go all-out invasion into Iraq to murder our troops and take over...

Taliban and Iranian Forces ally with Chavez and set up shop in Cuba, with sights set on Florida and Guantanimo Bay...

Russia and OPEC will become a totally anti-American organization and cut off our oil supply and try to starve us out with their version of embargos...

Osama bin Laden gets a meet and greet with Obama in the Oval office, only to find that it is an impersonator that sets off 50 pounds of C-4 in the White House...

It is amazing the endless possibilities that an inexperienced President can invite.

So, sure, let's take the chance. He MIGHT be ready...

Colin Powell...Is he confident in his endorsement?

This past Sunday, on "Meet the Press," General Colin Powell delivered an endorsement for Senator Barack Obama. His explanation for why he decided to support Obama came directly from the talking points of the Obama campaign.

First, when talking with Tom Brokaw on "Meet the Press," his main reason for support was the economy. A proven war General such as Powell gave his primary reason for endorsing Obama was Obama's message on the economy.

While I appreciate and respect General Powell, I have to question his judgement. What does he truly know about the economy? What about Obama's plan enticed him? Seriously, Obama has tossed out numbers that sound great in 5-second soundbites, but none of those numbers add up in a positive way for America.

Powell did talk to reporters on his way out of the studios after the endorsement. He further explained his position. He said that the negative aspect of the McCain campaign was also a factor. He claimed that the McCain campaign accused Obama of being a terrorist and a Muslim.

Whoa whoa whoa!

When did McCain's campaign call Obama a terrorist? He HAS in fact spent time working with a known domestic terrorist William Ayers. It is a FACT. Obama KNEW who Ayers was given that in a recent interview Obama said, "I assumed he had been rehabilitated."

Rehabilitated from what? Obama must have known how radical Ayers was, and still is today. On the morning of September 11, 2001, the papers that hit newstands just a few short hours before the world changed forever, included an interview with Ayers in which he said he WISHED HE HAD BOMBED MORE AMERICAN TARGETS. This was about the time that Obama was capitalizing on the political launching that Ayers helped facilitate.

There is a connection there that has not been fully vetted, only generalized and brushed off by Obama. However, at NO TIME has McCain, Sarah Palin, nor the campaign itself called Obama a terrorist. All they have done is simply question the judgement of a man who wants to lead the world. Is that so wrong?

Next, Obama is the only one who has brought up his name and heritage. The McCain campaign has NEVER brought into question Obama's name, his father's Muslim heritage, or his religion, period. Never. McCain grabbed the microphone from the hands of a lady who tried to bring it up at a recent rally. McCain has shown incredible respect and decency toward Obama.

Powell's reasoning has more holes than swiss cheese. It does not add up. I hope America will see through the smoke screen. Our troops overseas...our economy...our future cannot take the risk.

95% Working Families will get a Tax Cut

Sounds great.

Sounds outstanding!

Well, not so fast.

There is less than 95% of working families who even have a tax liability. So, to give some people who do not make enough to have a liability a tax cut, they will infact recieve free money from the government.

The numbers do not add up. Not at all. It is IMPOSSIBLE to give 95% of working families a tax cut.

Obama will only raise taxes on Americans who make $250K or more a year. Okay, so $250K a year makes you wealthy. This will include many small businesses. Small businesses drive the economy and drive our nation. If their taxes are raised, jobs will be lost. The circulation of money will slow. The strength of our economy is based on these small businesses that gross $250K-$500K.

Obama's plan will cripple the economy. Raising taxes to the hilt on the "rich" and on corporations will kill the American and world economy. It sounds nice in a soundbite, but it just won't work.

The fact is, corporations do not pay taxes out of pocket. They meet that like they meet every other cost in their production. How is that?

They pay their taxes by passing the cost on to the consumer.

It is a fact. Taxes are handled like every other aspect of producing a product or service. They are included in the cost of the product or service. So, raising the taxes on corporations will, in effect, raise taxes on every single American who buys the products and services from these corporations.

For those of you that want to see what a complete, unchecked Democratic majority can do, look at the state of Michigan. Michigan is in terrible financial shape. Taxes are through the roof. Corporations are taxed to oblivion. There are no new jobs going into the state because it is not financially viable for a new company. Michigan is falling into the lake named after it, and its because of poor Democratic leadership and high taxes on corporataions.

Please, before you cast your vote for Obama's high taxes and non-stop government hand-outs, look at Michigan and see for yourself how high taxes on corporations is working out.

Voter Disenfranchisement and Intimidation

Every election cycle, the Democrats whine, cry, scream and pout about "Republicans disenfranchising voters." They claim that their loyal, enthusiastic voters are being scared away from polling stations by Republicans.

People are being scared away from the polls because they have to show ID.


These same people show their ID when they buy a beer, so why is it so scary for them to do so at a polling place?

The Democrats are screaming murder over an e-mail from the Wisconsin GOP that asked for polling place watchers. In the e-mail, the GOP was asking for people with police or military experience to work in the "more intimidating" polling locations. They were asking that people with leadership and strength of character come and watch the polls, and ensure that every vote was cast legally, and that no foul play ensues.

The Democrats claim that is intimidation.

If your electorate was as excited, confident, and convinced in their votes as you claim they are, they will not be intimidated. They will not be disenfranchised. They will vote with confidence and conviction for their candidates.

However, if the mere presence of law and order and the limiting of fraud will disenfranchise you, perhaps you aren't fully aware and appreciative of your right to vote. Perhaps if the mere presence of law and order in the polling place scares you away, you have something to hide.

Say, perhaps, you are voting for the 76th time that day because you registered to vote with ACORN 80 times? Perhaps you are voting for a dead person who was registered by ACORN? Maybe you are wanting to vote under the name Mickey Mouse? Or vote under the name of a 7 year old?

The fact is, there is no such thing as "voter intimidation" or disenfranchisement" in America. Not when you consider the REAL "voter intimidation" or disenfranchisement" that the Iraqi people and the Afghanistan voters dealt with. No one in America is threatening to bomb your polling station. There are not AK-47's trained on you when you leave the polling place.

I am just tired of the joke claims of "voter intimidation" or disenfranchisement" by the Democrats every election. Yet, no one...and I mean NO ONE...not ONE...Democratic leader has spoken on the record against ACORN. ACORN has blatantly been fraudulently registering people, multiple times over. And many of these fraudulent registrations will slip through the cracks and vote.

Who do you think will benefit from the fraudulent votes?

The dead vote, Disney character vote, multiple vote, and Dallas Cowboy vote go to Obama 100%. Democrats also get the convicted felon vote 100%.

It's such a shame that the Democrats use ACORN to stuff the ballot boxes across the nation, yet still get away with accusing Republicans of "voter intimidation" or disenfranchisement."

Joe The Plumber

Wow. An average American asks a sensible, intelligent question, and now he is being investigated like the baseball steroid scandal.

Joe the Plumber simply wanted to know more about Barack Obama's tax plan. The question revolved around the $250K cap that Obama has set forth as the milestone that determines the wealthy, and the ensuing effects that it would have on small business owners who bring in $250K and up.

Barack Obama's response was straight out of the socialists' playbook. He wants to redistribute the wealth. Spreading the wealth is a good thing, he said.

Joe Biden, Obama's gaff-machine running mate (Stand up, Chuck!), thinks it is patriotic to pay more taxes.

Bottom line, Obama-Biden is going to raise taxes. Joe the Plumber wanted more specifics. He wanted to understand. He is an everyday American, working everyday hours, paying everyday bills. He just sought some piece of mind as November 4, approached.

Instead, he was told, by Obama's own words, that Obama-Biden is nota Democratic is a wealth-redistributing, tax-raising Socialist ticket.

And the media, save for Fox News, is all over it. They are dissecting everything about the man. They are looking into what he said, what he has done, and what he is all about. They are finally going after this man and trying to discredit him at every turn.

Oh, no, not Obama. They are going after the plumber.

That will teach him to ask questions of the Messiah!!!

Are You Ready to Elect Louis Farrakhan's "Messiah?"

We tell you that Barack Hussein Obama launched his political career in the living room of a known terrorist.

So what?

We tell you that Obama is going to spend like an identity thief with a new platinum credit card.


We tell you that Obama has made absolutely ZERO contributions to the US Congress, other than asking for approximately $1 million in pork spending per day.

Ah, that's just not important.

Obama's pastor of 20 years is a racist, bigoted, anti-American propagandist using the pulpit to degrade whites, America, and anyone who disagrees with any left-leaning black person.


Obama's campaign gave $800,000 to ACORN to help with their 'get-out-the-vote' efforts. As we have seen, and continue to see develop before our very eyes, that Obama For President money went to one of, if not the, most corrupt, fraudulent voter registration scandals in the history of American politics. Voters' names are turning up 10, 15, even 20 times. All with different addresses or phony social security numbers. Fraud! Obama has had ties to ACORN, and their brutish, manipulative, goon-like behaviors, since he graduated from Columbia, and certainly as he was beginning to launch a political career.

Ah, who cares, right?

Maybe, just maybe this will stick. Maybe the left-wing loons can put down the Kool-Aid and think for themselves. Maybe.

Louis Farrakhan is a racist. He is a bigot. He is a zealot. He is very much an anti-Semite (hates the Jews, period.). He speaks to black people only to incite hatred, and to excuse a black man's personal failures as nothing more than the white man's racism.

Farrakhan is a racist. Plain and simple. He hates Jews. He hates whites. He constantly speaks against Jews and whites, tippy-toeing the line and almost crossing into inciting violence against Jews and Whites.

Now, I do not have a problem with a man simply based on his religion. I do not agree with certain faiths and doctrines, but I do not get involved in, nor really care about an individual's religion. I do not discriminated solely on religion. That being said, and add into the fray that Farrakhan has constantly said anti-Jewish comments that are nearly as full of hatred at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, I think it bears pointing out that Farrakhan is the Head of the Nation of Islam.

He is the HEAD of the Nation of Islam. He spews hate-filled remarks against Jews.

And,in a recent endorsement of Senator Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan made a remark that all but confirmed the mania that has been suspected of the left.

Here is a transcript of comments Farrakhan made to the Nation of Islam recently.

You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change and that's why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.

Use this link to visit Glenn Beck's website and read the entire transcript from Beck's coverage of this speech. There is also a link to the video of this speech.

Transcript of Glenn Beck's segment on this video.

So, what is the deal here? Is a racist like Farrakhan calling Obama the Messiah? Or is Obama a tool of the Messiah of the nation of Islam?

Either way, is this an endorsement and an image that you are comfortable with? Can you hand the reigns of the free world to a man with such a resounding endorsement?

Or, am I just racist?

Would You Marry This Man?

Hi, my name is Barry.

I went to Columbia University. But, I can't tell you anything about my time there.

After Columbia, I worked on the streets of Chicago. In that time, I crossed paths with many people who could be deemed "radicals." I associated with groups that have been associated, if not fully guilty, of federal crimes and fraud, but I will not talk about them. I will only tell you it is in the past.

After that time, I went to Harvard. But, you cannot ask about, nor find out about, anything about by time there. My senior thesis is buried and hidden, and no one will release it for public consumption.

I have ties to a man who worked with a domestic terrorist group. One person I work with has described my relationship to this terrorist as "friendly." I say we barely know each other. I just happened to pick his house and living room to host a party that launched my political career and campaign to be state senator. Yet, he is not important.

I spent over 2 decades listening to the rants of an Anti-American, Anti-White, radical preacher. I sat in his parish for most of my adult life, and never had a difference of opinion with least until I ran for a national office. My church of over 20 years has been a pulpit full of racist, bigoted, anti-American sludge. However, you cannot be allowed to hold that into question, unless you, yourself, are a racist!

You cannot question my past. You cannot investigate my associates. You cannot consider my radical friends, associates, mentors, religious leaders, or anyone else I have spent time with in forming my political philosophies, beliefs, and goals.

All you can do, unless you are a racist, is take my words at their face value. Unless you are a racist, you have to believe what I say on Monday, and then change what you believe when I speak on Tuesday, because a new poll has come out and I have changed my message.

Will you marry me?

Or, are you racist?

Would you marry a man whose past you could not learn about? Would you date a man who had so many radical connections that he held for so long without serious and public denouncement of? Would you date a man that refused to release any information about his college years, about his connections to a fraudulent, strong-arming political machine like ACORN, about his time as a community organizer?

Would you let a man you know nothing about be your significant other?

Then, why would you let him take charge of your life and you future?

Friday, October 3, 2008

Well, I take it back...there is hope!

I was so down and out yesterday and last night, I forgot that there is hope for our country.

Her name is Sarah Palin.

She is smart, funny, strong, and a true leader. I just wish that the McCain campaign would let her take the gloves off and just go out and preach the truth.

Sadly, like McCain, she is forcing restraint. She isn't going for the knockout blow. She isn't forcing the issues that would hurt the democratic ticket.

However, her personality and her proven leadership and her, for lack of a better work, chutzpah have all led be to believe that she is our country's future. We need to send her and McCain to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I believe that after serving 4 to 8 years under McCain, she will be ready to lead our country into the future.

In 16 years, at age 60, I think Sarah Palin could very well become one of, if not the greatest leader of our time, if not in the history of our country. She has it all.

I guess it all comes down to how successful Acorn is at voter fraud as to whether Obama gets enough "Jive Turkey" and "Seymour Butts" votes.

Sadly, America is doomed.

What is wrong with us nowadays? We have no patience. No forward thinking. We have a national ADD.

Most of America was solidly AGAINST the bailout scam. Then, we, as a nation, panic as the Dow takes a dive. We start a national hysteria over something that can, in time, correct itself. At least correct itself to a point without needing to used BILLIONS and BILLIONS in tax payer dollars to cover up for Democrats' shortcomings.

This "crisis" started when Slick Willy's economic buffoons came up with the idea that EVERYONE should OWN a home. Everyone!!! So, the edict came down that, regardless of true credit and ability to repay the loan, money was thrown by the dump-truck-load down a bottomless pit of mortgages for the uncreditworthy.

Many Republicans, including current Presidential candidate John McCain, warned of this crisis as early as 2004. Yet, the very Democratic morons that are on the stump whining about lack of oversight and "failed Bush economic policies" are the ones who rejected oversight and control of this market. Why?

Well, mainly because most, if not all, of the democratic leadership was pocketing huge sums of money from these failing companies, like Countrywide, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. Chris Dodd recieved the most money, with Barack Hussein Obama receiving the second most in "kickbacks" from these companies.

So, now that the failures of these financial institutions are directly affecting the pockets of the democratic leadership, suddenly they can put in overtime to pass a bill to help out.

Amazing that there was not this much dedication to helping the American people when Republicans wanted to vote on off-shore drilling in August. A real problem with a need for immediate solution was not important enough for Congress to stay a day or two into their second Summer recess. Instead, Pelosi virtually shut off all electricity to the Capitol Building to force everyone to recess.

This new bill is more full of pork than can be described. It is ridiculous. An yet, Americans are buying into the hysteria and allowing this garbage to go through.

It is time for John McCain to make these porkers famous, as he so claims to want to do as President. It is time for the McCain campaign to load up the guns and fire away with the truth! It is time for the politeness and the diplomacy of the McCain campaign to come to a halt. It is time that McCain become the leader we know he can and lead us out of these dark, hysterical days.

Or else, Obama will lead us further into the abyss, and we might never come out.

The Latest News...My Take

First and foremost on people's minds is the current state of the American and world economy. Everyone is in a panic and thinking that we are on the verge of a new depression. I say, "Calm down!"

John McCain was right. The fundamentals of our economy are still strong. However, some very big financial institutions were very careless in their pursuit of outlandish profits and personal gains of the suits in charge. Some of those suits that have personally gained from the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac failures are include the very democrats pointing fingers at Bush. What people are not looking at is the fact that Barack Obama personally benefited from the two housing lenders' failures.

The bail-out of Freddie and Fannie, as well as AIG and the other companies being saved, will help keep our economy strong. While the bail-out will temporarily impact our tax budget, there is a real possibility that much of the $700 billion can be recouped, if not see a profit turned. If only we get the greedy democrats out of power.

Barack Obama and Chris Dodd and hundreds of other democrats personally pocketed millions of dollars from these institutions. Why don't they stand up and do the right thing and give back that shady money? Because it is easier to blame George Bush, the same practice that liberals have been doing since early 2002, when they first started blaming Bush for 9/11, and then it just continued from there.

This bail-out is, sadly, needed to prevent a deep recession, if not a complete depression. My hope is that America will elect McCain and McCain will let an economic whiz like Mitt Romney take charge of the economy.

Outside of that, we again are feeling even more pain at the gas pump. Why? We have no alternatives!!!!! We have no alternatives thanks to the do-nothing Democratic Congress. What happened to their promises of lowering energy costs? What happened to their promises of changing everything? They have done nothing! They went to break instead of voting on energy solutions. Nancy Pelosi forced the House of Representatives to summer recess instead of hearing Republicans who had requested floor time. She ordered the cameras off, the lights turned down, and the doors locked.

What kind of leader is this? She would rather go on vacation that do her job and find solutions for problems facing her constituents. And we are still painfully close to $4 a gallon with no hope in sight.

What has this heroic Democratic Congress done in two years? They were elected with promises of the sun, moon, and stars. They have done nothing of substance. They spent the first year of their time in power voting on non-binding resolutions to force withdrawal from Iraq. They have spent more time voting on resolutions that had as much legal power as a post-it note found on the floor of the Capitol Building than on finding solutions to American problems.

So, we have democrats with their hands in the crumbling cookie jar of Freddie and Fannie and Countrywide and all these other institutions. We have a do-nothing Democratic congress that has accomplished nothing, with the exception of a single-digit approval rating, setting historic records for disgust with accomplishment. Yet, sadly, nearly 50% of Americans support this same party?

Even worse, look at the kind of trash and low-life attacks that democrats are slinging at the McCain-Palin ticket. The left is not going on facts and issues, instead they are taking very mean-spirited, low, uncouth, dirty, disgraceful, and tasteless swipes at John McCain and Sarah Palin.

How many times do we have to hear that John McCain is going to die in office? The loud-mouths on "The View" implied and said it at least 6 times in the 30 minutes McCain was on their sofa. "God-forbid, something might happen to you..." McCain is a tough cat. He has smirked and walked-through and survived events and catastrophes that civilians could not fathom. Running the nation he has served for over 40 years will be a cakewalk compared to some of the travesties McCain has dealt with.

For a party that supposedly fights for women, they sure cannot handle a woman with a shot at the Vice Presidency. They constantly question Sarah Palin and her ability to be a family person and a VP. They never question a man, yet they attack a woman. Why? She is a conservative. If Sarah Palin was pro-choice and wanted to raise taxes and have government take over health care, these nut job feminazis would be 100% for her. Yet, because her fundamental beliefs are different, her gender is no longer worth promoting. And don't get me started on the complete garbage and classless attacks against Todd Palin and their children.

The children are not campaigning. They are CHILDREN, you sick, twisted, soul-less morons. We have left-wing media people and left-wing politicians who attack the Palin family on a daily basis. Charlie Rangel called Sarah Palin "disabled." Media have implied that Todd Palin is "doing those girls," referring to the Palin daughters. There are attacks out there claiming that Trig, the precious youngest Palin child, is actually the product of an incestuous relationship between Todd and the 15-year-old daughter.

Then there is Charlie Gibson with his very condescending attitude and disrespect for Sarah Palin. She handled it well, but Gibson was so rude and slanted in his interview with Palin. It is just part of a pattern of the left trying to tear her apart, not just politically, but personally.

I just hope, and I do have hope, that the rest of the country can see through the garbage. There are no real attacks on McCain's policies or Palin's strengths. Instead, there are personal attacks and attempts to personally destroy the children, who have nothing to do with the campaign.

So, people, please, see through the smoke and mirrors. Research and find the truth. If you think for yourself, and truly find the truth, you will have no choice but to vote the correct ticket come November 4.

Hurricane Ike

First and foremost, my thoughts go out to the people who's lives will be immeasurably impacted, changed, and lost in the coming weekend. I hope for the best possible outcome for the families who are being displaced by this storm, many of them on a permanent basis.

This storm is shaping up to be one of historic impact. I cannot put into words my fears for the people of Texas. There is no way to say something of encouragement when there is nothing to be done. It is cheesy and almost facetious, but I do sincerely wish everyone the best of luck in the next 72 hours.

The only thing to do is run. Evacuate. Get out. Find a new location to hunker-down until the skies clear and the waters recede. That is the only option for anyone in the path of this monstrous storm.

Sadly, and stupidly, despite the warnings, there are many people who are thumbing their noses at the National Weather Service, their concerned families, and the word of every official with a microphone. They will not get out. In fact, a bar called the "Poop Deck," which is located about 50 feet from the raging waters of the Gulf of Mexico, is full of partiers getting drunk and ignoring the coming storm. I do hope they survive, but their chances are very limited. Sadly, their ignorance may not only affect themselves, but might very well cause harm or death to first responders and emergency personnel who may have to save their stupid selves.

In cases such as these, perhaps it is time to follow the teachings that so many "educational leaders" want to teach in public schools. We should follow the teachings of the "Survival of the Fittest" and "Evolution." Perhaps, these people are the weakest and are not fit for survival. Why should we risk our limited and overworked EMS workers to save them after they put themselves in such danger? If they survive, praise be to God for sparing them, in spite of their ignorance. If they do not make it, they are the ones who took the risk, and got drunk, and stayed in harms way.

I know that is morbid to think, even more morbid to say publicly. However, I think it needs said. We always hear how evolution is the way, and that species move forward in the evolutionary cycle because only the fittest survive. Its time to put the money where their mouths are at.

I do not want any harm to come to anyone in Galveston, TX, or anywhere else for that matter. However, I have no sympathy for idiots who party and ignore warnings as issues by the NWS, who warned that those ignoring the evacuation pleas would face "Certain Death."

My next problem with Hurricane Ike is the gas stations today. Today in my little neck of the woods, we saw price gouging of historic proportions. Gas was hitting $5 and $6 today in anticipation of Ike. As high as gas was already, for them to gouge it so high BEFORE the storm, it is just ridiculous. I drove 1.5 hours round trip today to save $.75 a gallon before the trend swept all the way from Beckley to Wytheville, VA.

All I can say is: "Drill, Baby, Drill!!!"

Remembering What Today Is...

Each of the past six years, on the anniversary of September 11, 2001, I have posted a blog, either on MySpace, Xanga, or have written a newspaper column. In those columns, I have posted my support of the troops, President George W. Bush, the families and friends of victims of the attacks, and I have taken to pointing out the shortcomings of those that opposed President Bush in fighting the War of Terror.

I sit here, 7 years and 12 hours after the attacks commenced, and wonder. I wonder how different the world would be had the attacks never occurred. Where would we be? Would we be better off? Would we be worse?

We will never know, and there is no way to answer those sorts of questions. All we can do is play the hand we are dealt and hope to be able to guess what the other players are holding, and hope for what is yet to be dealt.

The hand we were dealt included a brutal attack on America and Americans, as well as many others representing nearly 100 other nations. That hand included a few, brief shining months of unity and respect for our own country, only to be followed by more division and vitriol than this country has ever had, including during the time of the civil war.

So, tonight, I only wish that the memories of the fallen might not be tarnished by continued hatred and anger and despisement of each other. I wish we would stop letting the TV tell us how to think. I wish we would continue to work for a better America by doing what is right, and not what sounds good in a 5 second soundbite.

WE cannot do that, though, because we have, overall, forgotten what happened in New York, PEnnsylvania, and Washington, D.C., that day. We have such ADD and a short term memory in this country. We have already blocked out and or forgotten everything this day means.

I, I plead with you, do not forget this day. Do not let the memories of the fallen go to waste. Remember the day. Remember the freedoms that those creatures tried to take away. Remember the fear they inflicted, and then do what you need to do IN SPITE of the fear and in spite of them.

America is such a wonderful, great country. We should not hurt our nation by forgetting the depth of the attacks on our country on 9-11-01.

In closing, I want to say thank you to the George W. Bush administration for not forgetting what 9-11-01 tried to take away from us, and making sure it did not happen again. I want to thank the men and women of the Armed Forces and Law Enforcement who have worked tirelessly, and sacrificing everything, to keep our country safe from attacks. I want to thank the families and friends who lost so much on 9-11-01 for being strong, and for carrying on their lives, showing that America can be knocked down to one knee, but, by God, we will rise again.

God bless America.

The Lipstick of Doom

"The difference between a hockey mom and a pitbull...Lipstick."

The famous, oft-repeated joke that Sarah Palin made in reference to herself, and other Alaskan hockey moms, at the Republican National Convention last week. The comment has been played, repeated, looped, and Youtubed a million times over. There is no way on Earth that his campaign did not hear and understand the comment.

Yet, Barack Obama, as he paused, stammerred, and "uh"-ed his way through a campaign stop in Virginia yesterday, he made a very snide remark and went below the belt on the McCain-Palin ticket.

His comment, which is an old saying, was that "You can put lipstick on a pig...{dramatic pause as he allows the crowd to 'get it' and laugh}...but it's still a pig."

For me, I have to conceed that it is in fact an old saying. However, his decision to use it, and then include the long pause for the crowd to get the joke, shows just how rattled he and his campaign really are.

There has been a 23 percentage-point swing in the last 10 days in a crucial area of Obama's demographic. Women, scorned by Obama being the nominee and then not even vetting or considering Hillary for his VP, are flocking to the energy, family-values, and inspiring story of Sarah Palin.

And Obama blatantly calls her a pig on the campaign stump.

For conversation's sake, let me pose this hypothetical, despite the fact that the likelihood of this being fact is minimal. Let's just say that Obama was not taking a swipe at Palin. Let's just say the "lipstick on a pig" comment was meant at face value and not a play on a largely famous comment from just one week prior. Let us say the comment is innocent in nature and not a swipe. Let's just say that.

So, now, we see just how poorly Barack Obama's judgement is working. Knowing the sensitive situation he is in with the way the media has lashed out and attacked Palin, he had to have known how his lipstick comment would be recieved. He HAD to have known that saying such a thing would be taken hard by many people. He HAD to have known.

Yet, he showed his typical poor judgement. The same poor judgement he used in choosing his pastor of 20 years. The same poor judgement in the people he has been closly associated with. The same poor judgement he used in talking about how the surge has been a failure. The same poor judgement, and possibly poor intelligence, he showed when talking about visiting the 56 or 57 states.

Either way, it shows the simple fact most people can already see, despite the attempts of NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MTV, and the left-wing blogosphere to smear and destroy the Republicans, that Barack Obama does not have the judgement, intelligence, and leadership ability to lead our country.

He called Palin a pig. Plain and simple. He refuses to focus on the issues alone, instead he takes cheap, below-the-belt swipes at the VP candidate and not his opponent. He will not tell us his solutions, other than he won't repeat what George W. Bush has done. So, he calls the VP candidate a pig. Well, I think he just showed that he is a chicken.

Victory is within our grasp...and they cannot stand it!

Oprah, MSNBC, The New York Times, John Stewart, MTV, and anyone else who does not work at Fox News are all flustered over the new look of the campaign.

Barack Hussein Obama is spending his campaign time and money trying to attack the VICE Presidential Candidate from the other ticket. He is not focused on John McCain, but Sarah Palin.

Where is Joe Biden?

It's like the left wing media and all the crazy kool-aid drinkers in the Obama campaign (Actually, that is all one-in-the-same..) are pitting the lone gun Obama versus McCain and Palin. Biden does no factor in the match up at all right now.

Sarah Palin has changed the campaign, the Republican party, and our country. She is a woman of integrity, small-town values, work ethic, and family. She is the epitome of what the women's movement CLAIMED to be about, yet the so-called leaders of the women's movement are attacking Palin as well.

America is starting to wake up and smell the cow droppings. The country is starting to see how the media operates. We all see that true journalism is dead, with the exception of Bill O'Reilly, of course.

The democrats have given up on running on issues. They are running on the new platform of "Sarah Palin is bad news! We can prove it once we find the dirt!"

They attempted to destroy her family and drag a non-public figure into the muck. Oh, yeah, and that non-public figure is a 17-year-old girl dealing with the pressures of adolecence as well as an unplanned pregnancy. They could not beat Sarah Palin, a 44-year-old Governor, so they attempted to destroy Bristol Palin, a teenager.

Oprah is very disappointing, yet, at the same time, not a surprise. Oprah risked her reputation by becoming very supportive and vocal for Barack Obama. She allowed him two appearances on her show. The claim is that it was before he announced that he was going to run for President, but anyone with half a brain knew that the appearances on Oprah were to make him more of a household name for when he would announce.

So, Oprah denies Sarah Palin, a family and career woman, the brightest example of the success of feminism in the last 10 years, the chance to introduce herself to millions of women just like her. The interview could be geared away from politics and simply allow the world to meet Sarah Palin. Instead, Oprah took a weak way out of it and refuses to allow Sarah Palin the appearance until after the election.

Rush Limbaugh said it, and this is not a racist or biggoted statement. It is merely an observation. I agree with the assessment, and think it is worth mentioning. Oprah has obviously and publicly chosen her race over her gender. For nearly 30 years she has made billions of dollars by acting as a woman's woman, a leader for women everywhere. Her entire career is built on her being a proponent of women's issues. Her race never mattered because she was a woman who transcended all barriers. Yet, in the one time she gets involved in politics, she chooses her race over her gender in not bringing in Sarah Palin.

So, the attacks against Palin will continue for 60 days or so. She will be attacked and questioned harder and more unfairly than you can imagine...certainly with more viciousness and intensity than Barack Obama has eve faced. And she will do it with her shoulders and head held high, and a smile on her face.

On November 4, 2008, I will proudly cast my vote for McCain-Palin. Their campaign is one of issues and solutions. The others are on a campaign of character assassination, empty promises, and naieve wishes.

RNC v. DNC...Winners and Losers...

The 2008 Presidential Race is officially on and heading into the final laps.

We now know the players involved. Cue the announcer...

"To my left, in the Blue corner, with zero executive experience combined, Senators Barack Hussein Obama and Joe "Less Than 1% in the Primaries" Biden...

Their opponents, to my right, in the Red corner, with leadership, courage, and a country-first philisophy, Senator John McCain and Sarah "The Baracuda" Palin!"

Let us examine what we have learned from the two conventions.

From the Democratic National Convention we learned...


We learned about Barack Obama's incredible life story. The details of his time at Harvard. The amazing things he did as Community Organizer. There unbelievable accomplishments Obama reached as an Illinois State Senator. We learned of how Obama single-handedly enacted incredible change as a Senator representing Illinois in Washington.

Not so much.

All we learned is that the Democrats are still on message...the same message of 2004.

The message of the Democrats is George Bush is terrible, the Republicans are terrible the policies of the Republicans are terrible, the country is in terrible shape, and we will do different. They also claim to be the carriers of change and hope. Change. Change. Hope Hope. Change and hope. Bush sucks. Change and hope. Healthcare. Healthcare. Bush and the Republicans did not do enough. John McCain is not the answer. Change and Hope.

In 4 days of the national convention, with all of the voting public watchin, we learnd absolutely NOTHING new about Barack Obama or Joe Biden. They continued their hatred and vitriol against the Republicans, but that was it.

At no time did the Democrats explain how they are going to bring about change. They simply repeated the mantra over and over.

And still, they did not tell Obama's story. We know nothing about his Community Organizer experience. We know nothing of any accomplishments at Harvard, in the state Senate or in the US Senate. They had 4 days to tell the story of Barack Obama and show his qualifications, and they did nothing.

We saw Obama standing on a grandiose stage with huge Greek pillars as if he were on Mt. Olympus, speaking amongst the gods to the peasants. During his speech, he did not present the case for his qualifications to be Commander-in-Cheif.

This week, on the other hand, we learned the details of John McCain's life. For years, we heard brief mentions of his time in a POW camp in Hanoi. We heard generalized statements and empty comments about his time as a POW. We heard small snippets for years that barely scratched the surface of who John McCain is. Then, finally, for the benefit of America, the Republicans did John McCain, as well as the rest of the men and women involved in the Vietnam War due justice.

For four nights, we learned of the incredible pain, sacrifice, indignity, and torture that John McCain and his fellow POWs endured. He is a human being that went through superhuman trials and tribulation. He admitted, on Thursday night during his acceptance speech, that during one of his painful torture sessions, the evil captors that held McCain and his bretheren had broken McCain. Through morse code, tapping on the walls between cells, McCain and fellow soldiers reassured each other.

McCain, Fred Thompson, and the RNC all made sure to point out that the fact of his time as a POW does not in of itself make McCain qualified to be President. However, the character, strength, and love and pride of country he developed in those horrible 5 years do.

We learned the McCain story. We learned of how much hell...pure, unadulterated hell on earth...that this man suffered. Amazingly, 4 of the 5 years that he endured wound up occurring because of his honor and his choice to stay. He was offered a chance to go because of who his father was. However, he honored the pact that American soldiers kept with each other...First in, First out. He suffered brutality that would kill most men in an instant for four more years because he had the character and honor to keep a simple pact with his brothers.

We learned that his character and strong resolve have made him a warrior in the US Congress, as he has fought for nearly 3 decades to slow the growth of government, slow the spending of government, lower taxes, and make America a better place.

We also learned of Sarah Palin's efforts to fight corruption and her other remarkable successes as a Governor. Sarah Palin introduced her family to America, and anyone with a decent heart and soul could see the love, adoration, and pride the Palin famiy shares. Sarah Palin is not an elite, rich, media-driven, poll-driven, politician. She is a real woman, from a real small town, with real small-town values and morals, with a real family who has overcome real life. Basically, Sarah Palin is REAL. She is smart, funny, hard working, and dedicated to America and serving her country.

The differences in the Democratic convention and the Republican convention should be undeniable and unmistakeable.

We learned nothing and there was no attempt to convince us of the qualifications of the Democratic ticket. We know nothing of Obama and Biden as men and as politicians. We should just take their empty words as the gospel and trust in their promises of change. We cannot question them for a definition of the change. We just have to know that they will bring change and take their word for it, asking nothing more.

In the Republican convention, we learned the life stories of the two people on the ticket. We learned of their experience. We learned of their morals and character. We learned not only why we should not vote for Obama, but also why we SHOULD vote for McCain-Palin.

Not only that, but also the mood and atmosphere of the conventions were so different, it was amazing.

At the DNC, there was a hatred, a level of vitriol that could be cut with a knife by folks watching at home. There was anger and disdain. The cheers were done in spite against Republicans. There was not a celebration, it was almost as if it were an angry mob with no real ideals, goals, or objectives, other than destroying the enemy.

At the RNC, there was an unbelievable level of pride, not only in party, but, more importantly, in Country. Pride in being a part of the nomination and election process. Then, as President George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, Rudy Guiliani, Joe Liberman, and Sarah Palin came out to tell McCain's life story, there were amazing levels of reverance and respect and pride combined into a huge celebration. There was such a higher, lighter, happier mood and atmosphere at the RNC. You could enjoy and celebrate the RNC.

I hope more people, especially those open-minded independents, who saw the RNC and came away with the same level of respect and adoration for McCain. I never knew how much he went through for this country. The RNC educated me. I will happily cast my vote for the Maverick Ticket on November 4.

I hope you will join me.

The Unfair Fight That Should Unify Conservatives, Women, and Mothers

Here is the situation.

On one side, you have the wife of a presidential candidate actively campaigning, speaking at rallies, and regularly sticking her foot in her mouth by making snide remarks about her country. This woman has called America a "mean" country. She said that the fact that her husband's ability to run for and win a party's nomination for president makes her "proud of [her] country" for the first time. She is an active member of the campaign. She is a campaign spokesperson. Yet, she is beyond reproach. Any questions about her are low-brow, below the belt, low class, and just plain wrong.

On the other side, you have a woman who has accepted the nomination to be her party's Vice President. Her family appears with her at times, but they do not speak. They are not involved in the campaign. They are her family, a separate part of her life. Her husband does not take the stump for her. Her children are not speaking at the national convention. Yet, all of the left-wing media, from the 5,000 failing NBC channels to CNN to ABC to to, all of them are attacking her family, the brunt of the attack focused on a teenage girl.

This campaign has gotten out of hand. I can deal with the media being so obviously biased for Barack Obama. I can live with their 10 times more favorable coverage of Hussein Obama. I can live with the rockstar-like coverage of his field trip to the middle east and Europe. I can even deal with the fact non of his left-wing media friends, and he has a lot, questioned his skipping out on meeting with injured troops in Germany. I can live with all the attacks against McCain or Sarah Palin. I can live with being called racist for not liking Obama, even though his ethnicity has no bearing whatsoever on my dislike.

However, I have a serious, serious problem with attacking a seventeen year-old girl. I have a serious issue with attacks against a teenager who has made a mistake that millions of teens have done, a mistake celebrated and encouraged by most people on the same side that are now attacking her. I have a serious problem with these irresponsible media folks attacking an innocent family for something that has zero bearing on the campaign.

It is just another sad example of how Obama is not qualified to be President. At no point in the 2008 election has Obama shown and outlined his qualifications. He cannot and will not run on the issues. He knows it. The democrats know it. The media knows it. So, they have to run attacks and smears like going after a pregnant teenager.

Pre-marital and unprotected sex are not things I endorse. I am sure Sarah Palin and her husband did not endorse nor encourage their 17-year-old to practice those type of things. However, she is a teen. Teens make mistakes. Teens think they know it all and do things they might later regret. It happens. Yet this teen and her family are united. They are supporting the teen who has opted to keep the baby. She plans to wed the father of the baby. There are far greater errors in judgement teens can make.

How low-brow is it to attack a family and embarrass, hurt, and psychologically scar a 17-year-old girl? How is this okay, yet to question Michelle Obama and her slightly anti-American comments a travesty of travesties?

How can you people sleep at night?

I like Sarah Palin. Her resume might be a little on the thin side, yet she has more executive, decision-making experience than Barack Obama. She has stuck her neck out an enabled change in a short time in the Governor's Office in Juneau, Alaska. She has a track record. She has a policy-based platform to run on as Vice President. She offers more qualifications and experience than Obama, who is running to be President. She is strong, smart, of high morals, and will bring change to Washington. She is a no-nonsense person who will fight for what is right, not what is popular.

She also offers the answer to many Hillary supporters. Those voters, especially many of the women voters, are upset that Obama is in and Hillary did not even get considered to be on the ticket as Vice President. Sarah Palin scares the Democrats. She, like McCain, cannot be defeated on issues.

So, what can they do?

Attack her 17-year-old daughter.

Way to go.

Tuesday, August 5, 2008


Well, Mr. McCain, you are officially tied with The One.

You've taken a few stiff jabs, clean jabs, at your opponent, the Liberal Messiah.

It is time to take the gloves off, fight, and go full steam ahead on your campiagn. Obama is calling you and your campaign racist without legitimacy, reason, or proof. We all know that the alphabet networks are in the tank for Obama...stop being cordial.

Mr. McCain, it is time for the Republicans to unite. It is time for us to find ourselves and reclaim the nation away from the grips of the leftist elites.

2008 was supposed to be a politically bloody year for the right. It was to be a year in which Liberalism could claim a victory and the fatality of Conservatism. Conservatism was supposed to be on life support in November, with the liberals pulling the plug and letting us starve to death like Terri Schiavo (Another liberal victory granted by judges legislating from the bench).

The McCain campaign, like the Conservative movement, was supposedly written off for dead. Both have a chance to make the comeback of a lifetime. However, the inkling of momentum Republicans have right now might be our only shot to get over the hump and on the way to a victory.

However, Mr. McCain is playing too nice. He is too clean. He is too politically correct. He is too cordial.

Obama is happier than a pig in the rut to tell America that he is black. Fellow liberal blacks will claim a vote against Obama is a vote for racism. We all know you are above that mess, Mr. McCain. Now is the time you hammer home the differences between you and Obama that matter.

The differences that matter between McCain and Obama are simple, fundamental, and easily exploited. It is time for McCain to fire at will and take every open shot he can.

Look at all the differences. Obama wants to tax anyone making money, other than him, to oblivion. Obama wants the government to take care of every single want, need, and desire for every American from womb to tomb. Obama wants the government to regulate and control every aspect of our lives. Obama has no faith in Americans, he truly believes the government knows how to better run the lives of everyday people. Obama wants to talk and have tea and crumpets with the leaders of terrorist nations. He wants to make diplomacy the way of American foreign policy. He wants to tell the enemy when we are leaving town, so they can rest and wait until it is open season in Iraq. Obama wants the oil companies to start cutting checks to Americans to help them with the cost of energy, as opposed to finding more supply to meet the demand.

McCain, you are totally different. Yet, you are not doing a strong enough job of convincing America of this. Your message is not out there nearly enough in strong enough language.

It is time for McCain to take the GOP by the horns and guide us into November. It is time for all Republicans to revert back to our tried and true methods of success. It is time to stop cow-towing to the left to keep them involved. It is time to leave them in our dust and do what is right for America and our future.

The latest debacle by the left in Congress should be the ultimate turning point in the 2008 election. It is up to the GOP to take advantage of what we have going for us right this minute.

Or, are we going to sit back and give away this election? Like in 2006?


There are so few people out there hammering this home. It is time for the Republicans and Conservative to take this election. The time is NOW!

Nancy Pellosi and Dingy Harry Reid called for the summer vacation and shut down congress. Not such a big deal in most years. However, most years do not see gas hovering near $4 a gallon.

The big problem is that Pellosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and also third in line behind George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, literally turned off the cameras, kicked out the press, and turned off the mics and lights in mid-session while Republican Representatives were trying to get an up-or-down vote on off-shore oil drilling.

Pellosi abused her position to avoid getting something positive done. She refused the chance to have the vote on a resolution that could set the groundwork to open up off-shore drilling.

In the two years since the Democrats have taken Congress, they have done NOTHING. They did give away billions of dollars in the tax rebate deal. We all loved that short-term, however, we will pay long-term.

The Dems have done NOTHING. They watched as oil climbed over 75% and did nothing to slow the skyrocketing costs of energy. They played games with war funding by trying to impose timelines and deadlines. They passed meaningless resolution after meaningless resolution that disagreed with President Bush's policies. They renamed post offices and bridges. They investigated baseball and football and pro wrestling.

Yet, Nancy Pellosi closed Congress for summer to avoid voting on a resolution that would only set groundwork for offshore drilling. Republicans were not asking for an immediate approval to start drilling. All Republicans wanted was to pass a resolution that set the idea in motion. In the busy schedule of softball interviews she had to get to, Pelosi just did not have time to try to ease the suffering of Americans at the pump, nor fend off the pending crisis this winter when Americans need heating oil.

Yet, there are not nearly enough Republicans in a all-out outrage over this situation. Pelosi just handed us Congress and the White House with this tactic. Are we ready to take back the leadership?

The next two months will tell. I hope we are. I truly hope Republicans get their heads out of the sand and start hammering the liberal twerps and take back Congress and the White House.

Flip-flop much?

After seeing his slim lead evaporate in less than a week, guess who is coming to terms with reality?

Barack HUSSEIN Obama is now promoting alternatives to high gas prices and proper tire inflation. He is actually turning his rhetoric around to where it might be possible that the United States of America might should actually use its OWN RESOURCES!!!

In the last few days, Obama, who will tell anyone who listens that he looks different than everyone on the US currency and John McCain, has come out and said the following. He said he would actually consider drilling off-shore on a limited basis. In addition, he has come out and endorsed opening up the Strategic Petroleum Reserves. On top of that, he has even said we need alternative fuel sources and renewable fuels.


The learning curve this man is on is amazing!

From the naieve, arrogant, elitist views of a week ago (America does not need to drill oil...Americans need to simply tune up their cars and properly inflate their tires! [The solution for our energy crisis as proposed by Barack on the campain trail last week])to the idea that we actually need to work and create solutions that will last.

Its amazing how easily Barack can change his mind. Just show him the latest polls!

If we could only get a poll out there that said 55% of Republicans would support Barack if he word a bra on his head, I guarentee there would be a piece of Victoria's Secret wrapped around those ears tomorrow!

That reminds me of something that I have been thinking about. On more than one occasion lately, Barack has pointed out that he looks different from previous Presidents and John McCain. Then, in Missouri, he said, that "oh, by the way, {he is} black!"

We know. We really don't care. We respect people for their content of character. Barack has none. He is a puppet for the left of the left. The only difference we might have really noticed physically is one of two things. How flipping scrawny he is...or the fact that he looks like a car with doors open. Other than that, nothing of note to physically notice about him.

This man is not a leader. He is a puppet. He refuses to face tough questions. He refuses to explain himself and his alliances. He refuses to answer for the outrageous comments his wife makes on the campaign. He makes outrageous comments about properly inflating tires as the cure for the energy crisis, but we cannot question him. We cannot attack him.

It is sad. It is scary that 50% of America supports him. It is damn scary that he might win the White House. Then have Ludacris remix "Hail to the Cheif," in which we would end up sending the whites to the cotton fields or killing or paralyzing Bush administration officials. Its frightening.

Hey, Libs, how sad is your candidate?

All we hear from Obama is how he is going to bring change to Washington. We hear vague details on raising taxes on the rich, universal health care, pulling out of Iraq by a deadline, whether or not the job is done, and change.

Obama is a joke. Nothing in his candidacy has any substance. He goes on this "Foreign Experience" field trip where he only shook hands with troops when cameras were rolling. He refused to visit injured/wounded soldiers in Germany because there was no way he could turn it into a campaign stop.

He preaches about change, yet he offers absolutely ZERO substance. He has no leadership experience. He can't even run a decent campaign. He is in NO way, whatsoever qualified to run a mom and pop shop, much less the United States.

During his field trip, he spoke to 200,000 Germans. He told these Germans, who have all the basic earmarks of a socialist society, that he was just like them, believed the way they believed, and wanted the United States to be more like them. I am, of course, paraphrasing and interpreting, as even he is not dumb enough to say it in that manner. However, he related well to the socialist-esque Germans...that same psuedo-ally German country that won't support us in the war against Terror.

Coming home from the field trip, Obama was stunned there was very little bounce in his poll ratings. So, what can he do to regain his ever-slimming lead? Play the ultimate trump card.


He commented that Republicans are going to use fear tactics. The kicker of the diatribe was that he pointed out that Republicans were going to try to scare American voters because he doesn't look like the other Presidents. Obviously, this was not a comment on the wigs worn by the likes of George Washington, or the stove pipe hat of Lincoln. No, no, no! This was a direct comment about the fact that Obama is...GASP!!

Let me say this. Despite what Jeremiah Wright or Ludacris or any African-American celebrity or leader might say or imply, not voting for Obama is NOT racism.

If you do not vote for Obama, it does not mean that you are a racist. No matter what you might be led to believe. I don't care what anyone says, an Obama loss in November is not a win for racism.

I would say in upwards of 75%, or higher, of American voters would not think twice about a candidate's race. There are very few people, overall, who would actually not vote for someone due to race.

There is going to be an African-American president sometime in the near future. I just do not think this candidate is qualified to do so. Just because he is black does not mean he should be the first black president. You would think that blacks would want their first crack at running the White House to be successful.

I would hate to think that someone like Condi Rice, or any truly qualified African-American person, would have their chances hurt by a electing Obama. Obama is being portrayed the the Great Hope for black people. Sadly, his colossal failure as President could set-back the entire race on many levels.

I am not a racist. I would have no problem with Obama if he were qualified. I would have the same reservations about a white, Hispanic, Asian, Polynesian, or other ethnicity candidate if they were as underqualified.

It says a lot that the only people pointing out Obama's race are people on Obama's side. Its almost as if they are trying to guilt Americans into voting for him. This is not a popularity contest that guilt or charity votes should be solicited.

This is the race for the White House. This is the contest for the highest office on Earth. It should be won on substance and character, not by pointing out that the candidate is black, and that is the only reason you should vote for him.

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
