"The problem here is a totalitarian uniformity, a cult-like mentality such that even allies are enemies if they fail to follow the Exact Party Line. " - Phyllis Chesler

And they'll make you a star!

The Biden Double Standard

Isn't this pretty much the same as this:

So why when Biden says it, it's ok and not racist and when we say it we get the "o" truth squad at our blogs and doors? This could be one of the scenarios!

Last week I posted about Irshad Manji here.

In that clip she discusses the idea that no faith presents more challenges to democracy than Islam.

As she explains, Islam is entrenched in Arab Cultural Imperialism which creates a strong cultural Honor Code and due to the honor code that they themselves have set up and forced upon one another, which she tells us that in the last 80-100 years alone "more Muslims have been imprisonsed, mamed, raped, tortured and murdered at the hands of fellow Muslims than at the hands of any foreign imperial power, a huge portion of the population will never be allowed to realize it's individual talents and when you can't realize your talents as an individual you aren't allowed to think freely, have your own voice spoken in your own name without it reflecting on a much larger group of people". She then goes on to express that "under the circumstances I have a very hard time of understatanding how democracy can emerge."

So you see Jay (previous commenter on my blog) when people like myself question "o's" possible Muslim background and why he seems to be hiding this familial situation from all of us, and we are concerned and do not want a Muslim as the president of our country, we are not being racist or prejudice at all. We are being smart. We are being protective of our rights to individuality and democracy that we now hold and wish to keep and not have taken away from us.

For the benefit of this discussion let's just say "o" is not a Muslim. He surely associates with a lot of extremist Muslims since his college days, even having the former spokesman of the PLO (Rashidi) babysit his children. If only "o" would run with this (Muslim) man as his long time friend of 20 years. But he doesn't.

Even more evident that "o" holds the values if not of then similar to the Arab Cultural Imperialist Honor Code is the employ of "truth squads" themselves, which rob each of us of our individuality and right to think freely and express freely without fear of retribution our thoughts and fears about any subject on the face of this earth including someone's faith and how their faith might directly impact the quality of our lives.

Here's one "o" supporters belief of what each citizen should do to another :What the Obama campaign should do is set up a "Neighbor2Neighbor" program. When someone in your community starts spreading lies, you can go to the Obama website and fill out an "incident" form, typing in the person's name, their contact information, and a description of the lies and smears they're peddling. A "campaign counselor" can then contact them by phone to discuss with them all the ways they're wrong. In extreme cases, counselors can even go out to the person's home and try to talk some sense into them. Obama himself said we need to get into peoples' faces and convince them to vote for him, and this program will help us do just that. Of course, the campaign shouldn't reveal the name of the tipster, but after the (former!) "smear spreader" sees the light they'll be grateful to whoever filed the tip.

And it's also evident that he holds similar values to the Arab Cultural Imperialist Honor Code when each time a question is brought up about his values and associations he seeks to stiffle the conversation by calling into question the question itself by stating the question itself is negative.

When if fact the questions are NOT negative but the information in question is negative yet truthful about the candidate...YOUR candidate. And instead he seeks to dishonor those who question, surpressing freedom of speech. For example: vetting "Joe the plumber" an average citizen not running for office. Just a guy with a good honest question that he had a right to understand the answer to, because this candidate's policies may very well personally impact his daily life and the life of his family.

I'm going to end this post by saying that these "truth squads and neighbor2neighbor" programs and suggestions were not employed or even thought to be employed when Kerry ran against Bush four years ago or when Gore ran against Bush eight years ago. This is a machine of "o" which comes from the ideology of Arab Cultural Imperialism Honor Codes.

And for these reasons you should NOT vote for "o" and instead give your vote to the truly honorable John McCain for President of the United States of America this 2008 election.

I stand with Irshad Manji, Tarek Heggy, Ayan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Phyllis Chesler, Bridgette Gabriel and the many other righteous people of the world.

Things That Make You Go Hmmmm

In Hillary Clinton's Own Words

Isn't this a good-enough reason not to vote for "o"?

Fuck You Sarah Silverman

Sarah Silverman: from one potty mouth to another FUCK YOU!

The Great Schlep from The Great Schlep on Vimeo.

From the Wall Street Journal

Andrew Biggs is a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a former Social Security Administration official who has written a great deal about Mr. Obama's plans on his blog (AndrewGBiggs.blogspot.com). He notes that to understand the unintended consequences, it helps to remember that while people at the bottom pay a higher percentage of their income in payroll taxes, they are accruing benefits in excess of what they pay in.

"It's interesting that Mr. Obama calls his plan 'Making Work Pay,'" says Mr. Biggs, "because the incentives are just the opposite. By expanding benefits for people whose benefits exceed their taxes, you're increasing their disincentive for work. And you're doing the same at the top of the income scale, where you are raising their taxes so you can distribute the revenue to others."

When asked about his priorities during the second presidential debate, Mr. Obama said that reform of programs like Social Security would have to go on the back burner for two years or so. "We're not going to solve Social Security and Medicare unless we understand the rest of our tax policies," he said.

The senator is right. But you have to read the fine print of his tax cuts to know why.

James T Harris's views

Ron Silver's Views

Will's views -- is he a racist douchenozzle too Sarah?

Or maybe it could be that the democrats scammed the poorest people of our nation? Or does STEALING the money out of poor and poor black folk's pockets by frauding them into thinking they would actually own a home doesn't bother you?

How about Deroy Murdock's educated and intellectual opinions and facts about Obama's economic policies as well as the inconsistancies of Obamas talk vs action regarding equal pay for equal work? Is Mr. Murdock a racist too? Will you blame him if Obama loses?

How about Charlie Gibson's own words about Obama's "understanding" of economics?

Or how about Michael Goodwin on the bias against Sarah Palin?

Or read about Anita MonCrief and what she knows about ARCORN from the inside.

Or just plain watch the evidence here.

And from Daniel Pipes

With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has "always been a Christian," despite new information further confirming Obama's Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.
Instead, then, let us review a related subject - Obama's connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its "consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism."
First, Obama's ties to Islamists:
The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour "was raising money for" Obama's expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black American (n� Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal, CAIR's largest individual donor. Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem, and he wrote a booklet titled "Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia." (Both Obama and al-Mansour deny Sutton's account.)

Kenny Gamble, or Luqman Abdul-Haqq, "amir" of the United Muslim Movement.The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-styled "amir" of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA's "amir" is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)
The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign's first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust, with Jamal Said, another unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR's Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.
The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign's second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network. Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty Muslims including such notorious figures as CAIR's Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society's Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: "You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work."
Second, Obama's ties to the Nation of Islam:

Louis Farrakhan, who calls Obama "the Messiah."Obama's long-time donor and ally Antoin "Tony" Rezko partnered for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Muhammad, a son of NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family "millions of dollars over the years." Rezko also served as executive director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that, without Ali's permission, exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.
Jeremiah Wright, Obama's esteemed pastor for twenty years, came out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an NoI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI's leader, as one of the "giants of the African American religious experience." Wright's church celebrated Farrakhan for his having "truly epitomized greatness."
Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him "the hope of the entire world," "one who can lift America from her fall," and even "the Messiah."
That Obama's biography touches so frequently on such unsavory organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause. How many of politicians have a single tie to either group, much less seven of them? John McCain charitably calls Obama "a person you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States," but Obama's multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.
Islamic aggression represents America's strategic enemy; Obama's many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to serve as America's commander-in-chief.

Looking Under The Hood And Kicking The Tires

"I think it's fair for people to look at this episode along with all others things that I've done over the last 20 years. When you are running for president your life's an open book. And I think that people have a right to lift the hood and kick the tires and this is one element of a much larger track record that has led me to not only run for president but to help build a movement all across the country. (end at 12:38 in the video)

Which candidate is using diversionary tactics? When some media points and bloggers began asking questions about his life over the last 20 years, lifting up the hood and kicking the tires this was the response:

and this response:

and this response:

So now in this video Obama is saying that you should no longer be looking under the hood and kicking those tires cause you should know everything there is to know anymore.

Or you get this response:

This means "do not question." Michelle Obama made PUBLIC statements and Obama is saying that the media "should be careful" and he calls them "attacking my wife" when they question her comments, her public comments. And Michelle even goes on to say "about not talking about the things to do with making their lives better" DIVERSIONARY TACTICS from honest questions about the man's life over the last 20 years. CHECKING UNDER THE HOOD!

Or go to this news site for the full interview of Biden

Who's comments are divisive? Have you ever heard McCain make any similar comments about Obama? No you can't. Here's the high road McCain took. McCain is a man of honor and NEVER speaks in such divisive ways.

McCain's advertisements are pointing out FACTS about Obama. The Facts themselves are offensive not the messenger.

Obama Wants To Take Your Money And Give It To Others

Think about this folks. This great big idea of his really boils down to this:
You are a family of two. You buy yourself an SUV. Your neighbor has a 10 year old VW Rabbit and is a family of four. The government comes and takes your car and gives it to the family of four because they need it more than you do. This is Distribution of Wealth. Is that fair to you?

It's 1939 All Over Again!

A presidential candidate that has accepted public endorsements from the black panthers the modern day black KKK, friendly relations with Ayers the unrepentent leader of the Weatherman, campaigned for the genocidal Odinga in Kenya, sat in a racist and hateful church for 20 years under Rev. Wright, helped Raines scam "his own people" out of millions of dollars and the loss of what they thought would be their homes and people flock to him and say they are voting because he is someone who can bring people together. Yes, look at the people he brings together!

Then look at what is happening quietly at the United Nations in the video below.

Now see what leaders in 57 STATES -this one shows one of those leaders (yes that is what Obama called the United States, when in fact there are 57 Muslim STATES) are saying about him.

Whatever happened to "never again"?????

It's A Much Needed Laugh Around Here

http://view.break.com/592648 - Watch more free videos

And I thought I'd show you one person's keyword search that brought them to my site for this post.

How My Days Have Been Going

If you've been visiting my blog the last few weeks you know I have become more and more political. So I thought it was time to just take a breather for at least one or two posts.

Because if you haven't been swayed by all the facts and evidence I had posted here thus far, frankly you're not ever going to believe any proof I put in front of you about Obama, you're obsessed with hate for the Bush administration and hell bent on punishing the wrong person for that hate, a good man, a man with 30 years of a public service record showing what HE stands for and what he doesn't stand for and even his opponents have clearly stated how well liked he is by both parties. If THAT isn't a man who can bring people together I don't know what else I can tell you. Obaminites claim they love how he has brought out more people and illuminated them. But I don't see the evidence of that. I see neighbor against neighbor over Obama. (See video below and linked quote under it.) I see dirty looks at my McCain/Palin button and little boys about 10 years of age GASPING at seeing that button. Or people like this "thoughtful and eloquent man"

that I suppose hasn't seen THIS: Then, I came up with a groundbreaking way to *stop* the lies and the smears, and I urge the Obama campaign to make it an official effort.What the Obama campaign should do is set up a "Neighbor2Neighbor" program. When someone in your community starts spreading lies, you can go to the Obama website and fill out an "incident" form, typing in the person's name, their contact information, and a description of the lies and smears they're peddling. A "campaign counselor" can then contact them by phone to discuss with them all the ways they're wrong. In extreme cases, counselors can even go out to the person's home and try to talk some sense into them. Obama himself said we need to get into peoples' faces and convince them to vote for him, and this program will help us do just that. Of course, the campaign shouldn't reveal the name of the tipster, but after the (former!) "smear spreader" sees the light they'll be grateful to whoever filed the tip.

Or he is completely deaf and dumb to this:

I see and hear a man who belittles you or worse for showing dissidence rather than being forth coming about his past, his birth certificate which even I who lost mine and had to get another one as an adult could easily do with a few bucks and a phone call.

Oh yeah...how my days have been going. HEEHEE
So here's how my days go:

  1. Wake up to Sadie jumping on me or knocking down something on my computer desk.
  2. Avoid feeing the zoo for as long as possible.
  3. Feed two 5lb monsters and one 13lb monster while trying not to trip over them as they run in front of me and jump on me.
  4. Get on computer and check email and read blogs and comment.
  5. Go to bodega and get coffee and bagel and possibly yell at bodega guy for some stupid thing he says to me that day about my hair or how tired I look.
  6. IM with poor D.O.M. cause he's the only other sad sack around during the day. ;-p
  7. Write posts for the blog.
  8. Scour youtube for interesting videos to post for my readers.
  9. Watch Fox News throughout the day.
  10. Search for mindless shows to watch on television: Jon & Kate Plus eight or Little People Big World are my favorites.
  11. Hope the cats don't "death by doodie" me too much during the day. THIS act stops all others from happening, whereby I must go and clean the offending doodie immediately before all oxygen is sucked up out of the apartment and we all die a horrid death.
  12. Yell at Sadie or KC to get down from the highest spot in the apartment where anything of value is sitting...watching them freak out at my appearance and knock at least one thing down for me to clean up. :-(
  13. Watch zoo fall asleep together for hours and hours looking angelic...run to get my camera and take photos as proof for myself that they can actually be calm.
  14. Beg g-d and spirit for more paying work that I love and money to pay all my bills, debts and rent and enough left over for something fun that will get me out of this apartment.
  15. De-funk.

Now after all this fun information ...if you haven't already made your way to the crotchety old man's blog yet hurry up! He's still running his chocolate give-a-way.

Who Is Obama?

It raises questions. Big questions! Questioning a presidential candidate for the United States of America is the most patriotic thing you can do, sorry Joe the VP candidate to beg to differ with you on what YOU think is the most patriotic thing we can do for our country. Any candidate for office and any office holder of the U.S. should always be made accountable to answer such questions as he works for us and not the other way around. He is OUR employee and we are HIS CEO. Answer the questions Obamasaiah. It's really simple. Provide a valid birth certificate and put the possible conspiracy theory to rest. You owe all the people the honest and open truth about who you are, where you come from, how you were raised etc. etc...It's not racist to ask but it sure as hell raises more questions when you give the appearance of hiding something from all of us.

Barack Obama and Raila Odinga

If THIS doesn't bother you about Obama NOTHING WILL! WAKE UP good people of the United States of America. Stop being the sheep to the slaughter. This man is NOT Hillary Clinton. This man is sleeping with murderous dictators. Look at this! Listen to the message Odinga tried to bring to his election. Look what happened. LOOK. OPEN YOU FRIGGIN EYES! Get out of your white guilt!

Let me be even more clear about this. I am not NOT voting for "O" because I think he is a Muslim or that he sides with Muslims but because of the PARTICULAR Muslims he sides with.


Well it appears that the Obaminites had the above video pulled. I guess NEWS REELS reporting his capaign activities and then NEWS REELS of the same rhetoric of CHANGE and then NEW REELS of Odinga calling for riots after he lost the election and NEWS REELS of the MUSLIM's burning and rioting and burning down churches filled with refugees isn't the message you want getting around the internet when you're trying to run for President of the United States. So I'll have to get other videos and piece it together for you. Please be patient.

You see this is how they deligitimize people like myself. If you remove the actual news clips that reported this and the only people who are reporting that here in the United States are from the Right, if the MSM refuse to report the news and only want to be the Public Relations Machine for Obama then it now becomes just the people from the Right's mouths and our mouths telling you and then they tell you how racist we are.

Here's a smaller clip with less of the one that was pulled. Please watch before IT gets pulled too.

(embedding not allowed. I believe that the clip pulled was also Reuters. I am not 100% sure. It was powerful. That I am sure of. They showed all the clips of Odinga calling for riots. They showed the churches burning too)

Hey Sarah Silverman REALLY "we're all the same inside"? I beg to differ. Thanks for being our modern day Kapos by perpetuating every anti-semetic and racist feeling about "how Jews really feel and behave"! Seriously, what would we do without YOU!?

There ought to be a show named in honor of you: Who wants to be the BIGGEST DOUCHNOZZLE!

James T. Harris

Please watch the video at the above link first and then come back here for the videos listed below.

Who Is Irshad Manji?

I've know about and read Irshad Manji for a few years now. On October 12 she wrote a blog post on her site titled: Why I love Prague — and Elie Wiesel

Here are a few excerpts from her post:

You see, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum had just opened, and as the original chair of the project, Professor Wiesel joined President Clinton on stage. The professor used this platform to compel the president into action, arguing that something — anything — must be done about the slaughter of Muslims in Bosnia.

Some of his fellow Jews criticized Elie Wiesel for capitalizing on this hallowed forum to raise the Bosnia problem. But Elie Wiesel wielded moral courage as his personal compass. He told his detractors that the museum itself is not a sacred site, and that “Jews do not have the right to be silent” when “men are dying, when innocent people are subjected to rape and torture, when cities are being transformed into cemeteries.”

Jews do not have the right to be silent. Wow. Instructive words for a Muslim woman who would, less than a decade later, have a similar message for her tribe.

Gandhi, a Hindu, taught Martin Luther King Jr., a Christian, about the virtues of soul force and non-violent resistance.

Another teacher of Reverend King was Lillian Smith, a white, Southern woman whom fellow liberals smeared as an extremist for her outspoken opposition to segregation. She embraced that smear, arguing that in times of moral crisis, moderation is cop-out. You must be an extremist — of love.

pluralists — people who appreciate multiple perspectives and truths

relativists --people who will fall for anything because they stand for nothing

Irshad is Director of the Moral Courage Project at New York University. It aims to develop leaders who will challenge political correctness, intellectual conformity and self-censorship. In the best spirit of liberal education, the Moral Courage Project teaches that rights come with responsibilities, that we are citizens rather than members of mere tribes, and that meaningful diversity embraces different ideas and not just identities.

(I disagree with only ONE statement she makes in the video I am posting: her use of the term "occupied territories" However, I feel this woman champions for peaceful coexistance and shares my strong values for the same. Please give her some of your time.)

Wise Words From Ron Silver

I found a blog by Ron Silver today. I learned something very interesting that I thought I should bring to all my readers. He writes of the many stated refutes that we are supposedly paraonoid of "just" some men in a cave and that to us here in the West living in a cave signifies backwardness and nothing to be afraid of:

...caves in the Muslim narrative have a resonance different from ours. We may associate caves with Neanderthals, but many a Muslim intuitively understand that it was from a cave that Mohammed received not only revelations (The Night of Power) but went on to conquer by sword much of the world.

A few more highlights from his blog post on Fear:

Is it so heroic to make a film or a speech that has the support of everyone in your community? What kind of courage does it take to go after the Bush administration if you’re a member of the Hollywood community, and most everyone agrees with your position and will reward you for it — or you’re part of the political class in Washington, D.C. or in New York or in parts of California? Forget the tenured and not so tenured academics, who while not being able to change the world in 1968 have devoted their lives to teaching future generations about the evils of the one, seemingly dispensable sovereign nation that evidently makes the world unlivable.

What I would not do is to minimize the threat and construct an alternate universe that lives by the rules we value. In Lee Harris’ book %%AMAZON=0743257499 Civilization and Its Enemies: The Next Stage of History%% (Free Press, 2004) Mr Harris makes the point that we live “In a civilization with an intellectual culture that is reluctant to take the idea of an external enemy seriously; its enemies, though have no such qualms… we are caught in the midst of a conflict between those for whom the category of the enemy is essential to their ways of organizing all human experience and those who have banished even the idea of the enemy from both public discourse and even their most innermost thoughts.”

For those of us who are willing to confront these realities, Mr. Rothstein’s concluding sentence, “for those prepared to accept Mr. Harris’ premises, there is nothing to fear but the lack of fear itself,” serves as a reminder.

Be reasonably afraid. Be very reasonably afraid. And act accordingly.

Below is some information on Ayers.

Ayers and Dohrn were leaders of the Weathermen and signatories of the ultra-radical manifesto You Don't Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows, released at the national convention of the revolutionary Students for a Democratic Society in June 1969.

This 20,000-word manifesto called for a communist revolution in the US; the victory of communist North Vietnam in the Vietnam War; and the creation of "two, three, many Vietnams" designed to consume all of America's military resources. It denounced all police as "pigs" and detailed strategies to defeat them; and advocated a vanguard role for black people, supported by university students and young people, in the revolutionary overthrow of American society.

The Weathermen advocated urban guerilla warfare and terrorism and undertook an intense campaign of bombings, violent demonstrations, riots and jail breaks from 1969 into the early '70s, beginning with the Days of Rage, held in October 1969, to correspond to the trial of the Chicago Eight. In 1970, the group issued their Declaration of a State of War against the government of what they dismissed as AmeriKKKa.

Hmmm...the last word really sticks out to me. Didn't Rev. Wright get caught on tape spouting his America hatred calling us the KKK of America?

Democrats Opposed Freddie Mac Regulation Bill - Republican John McCain Supported Regulation Bill

Open Letter to the Associated Press

Dear piece of shit organization:

Do you hire your reporters straight out of kindergarten or do you actually groom them to lick the butt of "the one" and write purposely misleading and false articles. J'accuse you of being a fifth column!

Today your writer Pete Yost writes a biased story about the lobbying of Republicans by Freddie Mac to stop a regulation bill.

BURIED in the article is the real situation which should have been the headline:

Democrats Opposed Freddie Mac Regulation Bill

There was ZERO support from the Democratic side of the aisle to allow a vote for a bill pushing for regulation.

26 Republicans supported pushing this banking regulation bill to the senate floor for a vote.
Zero Democrats suported this measure.

Bill Frist the Majority Leader at the time was lobbied to move his position over to the DEMOCRATIC position, thereby "voting with" the Democrats against this measure.

No lobbying needed to be done to the democRATS because they were already SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY!

Who supported the banking FREDDIE MAC regulation bill?


John McCain signed on as a co-sponsor of this bill.

So it's because of all the democRATs that all these poor people are unable to pay their mortgages right now.

John McCain tried to fight for legislation that would have protected the monies and homes of these very poor people ACORN and their messiah claim to be championing for.


John McCain is the ONLY candidate running who has a clear record of standing up for the little people.

Vote John McCain on election day 2008.

A Little Mutual Masterbation Anyone?

Colin Powell will have a role as a top presidential adviser in an Obama administration, the Democratic White House hopeful said Monday.




Who Is Deroy Murdock? Women LISTEN UP!

Women who are voting for Obama because they think he supports more of their positions LISTEN UP AND UNCLOG YOUR EARS. You are being used and lied to!

Who is Deroy Murdock and why should you listen to him?

  • Georgetown University
  • degree in government
  • contributor to Economic Stategy
  • participated in seven national conventions for both democrats and republicans
  • focuses on fiscal issues and writes on foreign policy
  • senior fellow at Atlas Economic Research Foundation
  • championed for medical savings accounts

He has recently written about the inconsistancies in Obama's stated position on fairness of payrate for women and men.

While Obama makes huge claims that "Now is the time for equal pay for equal work" his own office pays women ONLY 83 cents for every dollar a man in the same position makes.

LegiStorm posts the salaries of Capital Hill staffers. Obama’s 28 male staffers divided among themselves total payroll expenditures of $1,523,120. Obama’s average male employee earned $54,397.Obama’s 30 female employees split $1,354,580 among themselves, or $45,152, on average.

Obama has five high paid advisors. ONLY ONE OF THEM IS A WOMAN.

McCain’s 17 male staffers split $916,914, thus averaging $53,936.

His 25 female employees divided $1,396,958 and averaged $55,878.

On average, women in McCain’s office make $1.04 for every dollar a man makes.

A typical female staffer could earn 21 cents more per dollar paid to a male counterpart — earning $10,726 more to her annual income simply by quiting Barack Obama’s office and working for John McCain.

Out of McCain's five top paid advisor's THREE are women. Of 20 of his highest salaried staffers 13 ARE WOMEN.

(For a detailed analysis of these figures, click here.)

Iran/Muslim Culture 101

Tajzadeh, a former deputy interior minister, said that Iran under a continued Ahmadinejad leadership will turn into a new Iraq and Afghanistan.

When we show strength they respect us and are scared of us. When we show weakness they walk all over us.

IF our policies in Iraq are so wrong....how can a statement such as I have listed come from an Iranian leader at this current time?

Our policies were and are smart. The communication of our goals to the American public have been lacking!

NOTHING needs to change from our end.

Obama's Tax Plan (2)

Friday, October 17, 2008

Here's Obama's Economic Plan

This IS What You Get With Obama

OBAMA's fighting for the middle class? For the little guy? Think he fights for you? Think again sheeple?


University Of Delaware's Definition of Racism

The following is from Knitting Ramblings:

Here is something that may provide some insight into Obama supporters’ use of the race card. In 2007, it was learned that the University of Delaware has a mandatory program that requires residence hall students to acknowledge that “all whites are racist.” The program went on to offer misguided whites “treatment” for incorrect attitudes regarding class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality they might hold upon entering a school.

Now, why did the school think all whites are racist? Because this is their definition of racism: “A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture, or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. System, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination.” The school’s policy deserves mention because it is advocated by most self-appointed black leadership.

There you have it. Blacks can’t be racist, because they don’t have power over anyone. Only whites can be racists. So for Obama and his people to call McCain or anyone racist is simply a way of saying “Hey, Whitey!”

Maybe this explains Obama's choice of Biden for VP on his ticket.

Secret Service Finds Allegations Of "Kill Him" Unfounded

You'll have to click on the image to see it larger. But when you do you will see that I had a visitor YESTERDAY who specifically wanted ONLY stories about racist remarks at the McCain rallys. You'll see my blog post came up and was clicked on. Thank goodness the sentence that follows under my headline was used in the results.

Below is another site that posted the actual story and below that is a comment from another blogger's visitor who I think really hits the nail on the head.

SCRANTON – The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded.

The Scranton Times-Tribune first reported the alleged incident on its Web site Tuesday and then again in its print edition Wednesday. The first story, written by reporter David Singleton, appeared with allegations that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett was addressing the crowd and mentioned Oabama’s name a man in the audience shouted “kill him.”

News organizations including ABC, The Associated Press, The Washington Monthly and MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann reported the claim, with most attributing the allegations to the Times-Tribune story.

Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.

Somehow I doubt that the mere fact that their is no evidence here is going to carry much weight on college campuses. A familiar feature of various “j’accuse” campus incidents seems to be that what counts is not whether something actually happened, but whether it could have happened.

That is, if the alleged incident matches the observer’s viewpoint, then it may as well have happened (even if it didn’t).

Consider, for example, the alleged rape of a black stripper by white Lacrosse team members at Duke University. How many believed it (sans credible evidence) simply because it fit their internal narratives of white privilege and black victims?

And so, for many, it doesn’t really matter whether the incident actually happened– because it could have happened, and therefore it might have happened and even if it didn’t, what difference does that make anyway?

Click on my photo today to see just how long this 6 month old baby is. Her paws stretch further too.
KC can jump in one leap, straight up about 5 ft. And she learned that she can now jump and stretch enough to reach the top of my bookcase with the sarong I showed you back in the summer.
That location is where I keep all my candles and dried flowers. Needless to say I am not a happy kitty momma about this at all.

Slow Down And Learn Why You Should NOT Vote For Obama

I've been called negative and flared as soon as I started to write about my political views on my blog. Many of these nasty comments came directly from regular readers of mine who followed me from almost the begining of my blogging last year. These nasty and judgemenatal comments came from the same people who loved me previously, sent me awards and meme's and talked to me off site and some who I even spent months and in those months hours at a time chatting and emailing with and sharing their personal issues and lending them an ear. And from this lovely bunch of "good people" "non negative people" "inclusive and politically correct people" I was sent this clip. If you go directly to the site where the clip is hosted you'll see this very inclusive and politically correct title for it : "Half-Retarded Drunk Rednecks Rail Obama"

Last time I checked, the left was screaming bloody murder if you used this word even to describe yourself in a stupid act. The last time I checked it was name calling used in this fashion. The last time I checked being retarded was a medical condition that afflicts many families that I do not think would appreciate this.

I also believe that the sender of this clip to me was trying to make a point that somehow all McCain supporters are stupid white people who are always drunk. What I found so ironic in watching this is that even these "stupid hill billy drunk white folks" knew the issues and could hold an intelligent conversation and use real facts to support their choice and feelings and opinions. Even when the woman is provoked to use the word "niggar" she corrects them.
So much for trying to make her sound racist!

BTW Senator Obama’s racial background consists of the following: 50% white (mother, both sides), 43.25% Arabic (father, both sides), and 6.25% African Negro (father, one side, 1 generation removed). 12.5% is the legal threshold one must prove to claim racial status under the law. In addition, Senator Obama cannot make a sociological claim as an African American either. He was not raised as an African American, was not raised by African Americans, and was not raised in an African American neighborhood.

And to that last statement about me spending time lending my ear to many of these bloggers only to be turned on after I started blogging about politics, let me clearly state I don't regret that because I made that choice willingly and need not one thing in return for doing what I think a good friend does PERIOD.

Those same people are intolerant of my views. Even though I have clearly shown well-thought out arguments based on facts, shown videos of strong arming tactics, bullying tactics, anti-semetic remarks, hateful and racist views associated with the candidate I do not support, to show my reasons why I could NEVER vote for that person, I have been accused of some horrible things and had mob tactics and brainwashing tactics used against me. Much like what you'll see when you watch this next video. I have experienced similar on the street in NYC myself.

Simply by showing a black man in a video who I thought was brilliant, analytical, give a well - thought 10 minute speech about why he supports McCain and how his experience in the black community has been because of it and how he feels about their treatment and conclusions, I was called racist. I posted that video here on my blog and on a blog social site. There my thread was hijacked by a mob of anti-mccain bloggers. Notice how I don't say pro-anything. Instead of talking about the things the man in the video said, I was attacked personally. They tried to tell me I put the thread in the wrong category, twice. They changed the topic to make it about me defending McCain rather than the topic at hand. And they did this like a mob of rabid dogs. No one could answer and keep up with the barrage of bullets coming at them that fast nor should they have to. Because good people do not behave in this way.

James T. Harris a black conservative talk show host discusses this very subject on his shows and has walked off CNN for this very reason. http://www.620wtmj.com/ He calls the tactics I mention the Generation Xer way of coming at you vs being a gentleman.

Watching Fox's morning news, I listened to a group of supposedly undecided voters voice their reaction to last night's debate. Most seemed to think Obama did better. Especially on his healthcare issues. When pressed for a reason one said, "Well it seems like we do better and get more from him but I don't really understand how."


Isn't that the ojective of a MAGICIAN? Slight of hand...making things SEEM like they are fanstastic but the reality is it's just a trick?

Another undecided from that select group said that everyone can relate to Obama and he understands us because his mother died of Cancer and most people have that in their family.


If most people have that in their families then wouldn't that thought process apply to John McCain...Wait a secooooonnnnnddd! McCain is a CANCER SURVIVOR himself.


Here's a video all the "undecideds should really watch and realize who they would be voting with.

I've also showed severe media-bias such as this new headline:

"Secret Service looking into Obama threat at rally" currently on Yahoo!
If you actually read the story you'll find that what is taking place and what has been deduced is that there were tapes of these supposed events at the McCain Rally and what was heard was "tell him".

The honest headline should have been: Secret Service investigation finds no threats made at McCain Rally.

Why is this important? Let's break the sentence down for you folks.

Obama threat at Rally is the headline
Those are the key words in the headline and that is the idea being put forth. And if you're the kind of person, which most internet readers are, that never open a story and only zip through headlines for the overall summary, that's what you're left with, a confirmation of what Obama said at the debate last night, that there have been reports of threats shouted about him at McCain rallies.

It's a big lie!

I've personally heard from people I work with, "But McCain doesn't support the middle class"

That's another big lie.

Here's another source that will give you a long list of lies NObama has been publicaly caught in.

I've also heard the "but he supports Bush" argument. And I said what I was so glad to finally hear McCain himself say, he's not running against Bush. McCain has a clear and long history and record of his own to stand on. Let's talk about the two candidates.

Then from the same person I heard, "Well I do like John McCain it's just that Sarah Palin I don't like. She doesn't have enough experience."

Sarah Palin has more experience in government as the second on a national ticket than Obama has as the first on a nation ticket. Those are just the facts. I'll agree that her foreign policy experience is weak. However so is Obama's. He's done nothing in that area either. Nothing. Taking trips to Europe does not count for foreign policy.

I've heard such arguments that McCain is a terrible person because he didn't support Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Arizona and voted against it. True, he did and then he thought about the issues and changed his position. HOWEVER, this is a weak reason to not vote for someone and try to say they have racist tendencies.

While Martin Luther King Jr. was a great man in our great nation's history, he was also just an ordinary citizen. He didn't hold office. He wasn't President, he wasn't a Governor of a state. He was a great preacher and charismatic. And incidentally he was a Republican. I'd like to know what other holiday in honor of a person that didn't hold office we have as a National Holiday. And please don't tell me Columbus Day because we honor him as the one who discovered what became our country today. It's not the same.

If Martin Luther King Jr. is to get a national holiday why no uproar for Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony. They ARE the true equivilant to Dr. King and they were the ones that paved the way for him to be able to do what he did for blacks in this country.

It's pure silliness and a victimization argument. But if you're going to stand firm on it and say it's about racism and shows McCain's character flaws then you have to give just as much creedance to the character flaws of NObama and those he associates himself with and the hatefilled speech that they STILL TO THIS DAY MAKE, not made when he was ONLY eight.

Jesse Jackson made the Hymietown comments when NObama was in his 20's. And to this day he still makes anti-jewish remarks. Jackson's son is on NObama's campaign team.

Reverand Wright was his spiritual leader for 20 years and NObama himself wrote an entire book which outlined his racist feelings towards whites and how to treat whites.

Rezko and Raines...well google them and what they did to the poor people in this country. Slumlords and embezzlers of poor black folks hard earned cash, working directly with the predatory lendors who intentionally mislead these poor black folks into loans that would double and balloon on them in only a few years after signing the papers ensuring that they wasted all their money each month, for years paying into a mortgage that would never let them see full ownership of their homes.

And then there's just LARGE and in PLAIN SIGHT vicious RACIST hatred of his friend who was invited to his church to speak on many occasions, Louis Fahrakan. And if you're just one of those people that couldn't care less about Jews, then try to wrap your small-minded brains around this idea. YOU'RE NEXT! Think I am wrong. Please go watch Brigitte Gabriel's video's about her life in Lebanaon as a Christian Arab. (the link is on the left side of her home page)

I've heard that all Republicans are gun loving, gay hating, anti abortion nuts.

Heck I used to feel those things too. But the truth is that those are blanket statements and that while it may have been the majority in the past, it's not the majority now. There's a base, true, but there's so many more people like myself who are staunchly pro-choice, pro-gay marriage and not gun loving that relate better to the values of the Republican Party.

I'm here to state my views and give you an idea into the thought process not to give an education about the Republican party's values in depth. For that, I say to you, to get off your duff and do your homework as I did. Read books, read Republican sites. Don't bury your head in the sand and let others tell you how you should think. And don't demand that I tell you. I believe in personal responsibility.

Here's a blog that lists a very informative news story from Investors Business Daily.

If you want to learn more about NObama's policies and how they will affect us all, go read it.


I Was Only Eight AND Time To Get Fact-ed

I've been thinking...so watch out!

NObama's EXCUSE regarding his STRONG ties to Ayers is and has been "I was only eight when he did those things."

So since this seems to give him a pass with the media and the Obamamaniacs I am going to coin the term and invoke this in all my responses to the moron leftish mobsters when they make stupid comments here or on blogsites.

Anytime they try to use race as an excuse to further their causes, bring up slavery and the history in this county I reserve the right to invoke the "I was only eight principle!"

OBAMANICS: Slavery in the United States caused....fill in the blank with the nonsense they'll end that sentence with.

ME: When slavery existed I was only, wait, I wasn't alive then so it's ok for me to associate with and have dinner with and take money from _____________ today.

Want to join in on the examples you'll use? Leave them in the comments section.

Time to get FACTed: (fact-ed=information you should understand so you don't get fuck-ed)

Tax relief

Obama: Cut taxes for ONLY household making less than $200,000, and keep them flat for those making up to $250,000. Bottom line: Top earners would pay more, low-wage workers would get more than under McCain. (Us against them mentality. As far as I was raised, these are not values of togetherness, compassion, healing or hope. This is pitting one group against another with huge negative judgements against one.)

McCain: Maintain Bush tax cuts and reduce taxes across all income levels. Raise exemption for each dependent to $7,000 from $3,500. Guarantee 100% of all savings for six months. Cut corporate and capital gains taxes. (We're all in this together and we'll all get a tax break. Even puts forth actual numbers not just blanket promises with no details.)

Mortgage crisis

Obama: Enact a 90-day moratorium on most (some people losing their homes don't deserve our help. hmmm) home foreclosures, provided homeowners are trying to make payments. Create a new agency to provide lenders with "meaningful incentives" to refinance bad mortgages. (So much for being "for the little guy". Biggest do nothing statement yet. A big damn deal 3 month reprieve! INCENTIVES -- haha. Look what they've done thus far with the money we gave them to bail them out: spa packages and trips to fox hunt. Yeah that'll work Nobama!)

McCain: Buy bad mortgages directly from banks and replace them with fixed-rate, government-guaranteed mortgages for homeowners at reduced value. Taxpayers pay the difference. (WOW an actual plan with details given to us. The home owners win and the taxpayers win to, because, call it what you will, the result will be that people will be able to pay the loans and stay in their homes. Your neighborhood's values will not plummet. Those people will be able to afford to go to the local stores and buy food and other necessities which will keep those employees working. Those employees will have paychecks and add needed taxes to the system AND have cash to spend in at your business which keeps you employed...do you see where I am going here?)

Retirement funds

Obama: Allow families to withdraw up to $10,000 of their retirement savings without facing a tax penalty through 2010. Seniors earning $50,000 or less would pay no taxes. ( Oh Geeze! Thank you Obamessaiah for FORCING/ALLOWING my family to take $10K NOW. As far as the Seniors go, he knows this is a joke. His own campaign and followers think McCain is gonna die in office so by his estimation there's not much to give or lose here. -- Just sayin!)

McCain: Allow seniors to delay mandatory withdrawals from IRAs and 401(k)s so stocks don’t have to be sold in a downturn. Withdrawals they do take would be taxed at the lowest rate, 10%, through 2009. (Believes in helping Seniors to save their money and make it last for a long timetime ahead of them, and not lose value by taking their money out now.)

Stats above come from here.
