"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

Well Wishes For An Amazing Blogger

If you visit Joe's blog this week you'll see he is with his sister and has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure.

It seems my favorite blogger needs a heart.

To many this would seem very sad news...but Joe and friends, I have something to pick you up...no worries.

First what is CHF?

Congestive heart failure (CHF), or heart failure, is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough blood to the body's other organs. Congestive heart failure (CHF) affects nearly five million Americans. More than half a million new cases of CHF are diagnosed every year Usually, CHF is caused when the heart has been weakened over time Congestive heart failure (CHF) happens when the heart's weak pumping action causes a buildup of fluid called congestion in your lungs and other body tissues.

What causes CHF?

(No surprises here)
-- Diabetes- Diabetes is a set of related diseases in which the body cannot regulate the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood-- elevated cholesterol

-- High blood pressure that results in thickening of the heart muscle (left ventricular hypertrophy) Years of uncontrolled high blood pressure damages both heart and blood vessels.

-- loss of heart muscle due to coronary artery disease (heart attack)

-- heart valve disease
-- cardiomyopathy (weak and enlarged heart)

-- When the heart cannot pump enough blood throughout the body, fluids build up " and that can lead to complication

-- Unhealthy habits, such as smoking and excessive, toxic exposures, like alcohol or cocaine

-- Obesity and lack of activity may contribute to CHF, either directly or indirectly through accompanying high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary artery disease.

Anyone who follows Joe's blog knows he also blogs about having and living with Diabetes.

But as well as Joe knows me, he will totally NOT be wowed by the next thing that happened to me today.

Just after reading his blog post about his CHF I sat down to eat my morning ritual of coffee and a toasted bagel with butter. I turned on my television to FOX news (what else should I watch on a Sunday morning) and Dr. something or other is on the television talking about none other than CHF and DRUM ROLL PLEASE.............................................................................................

I kid you NOT. One of the drugs used effectively to treat CHF is Viagra.

So it seems that the cure is better than the disease for once. HAHAHAHA!

So dear Joe, my favorite blogger in all of NJ, it seems that you'll be doing just fine and Mrs. Crotchety gets some major bens from your disease as well.

Please take a moment and visit Joe's Blog and leave him well wishes over there as well as here, so that he feels doubly loved when he comes by my blog today.

In Memory Of...

I was not home when this email request came in. However Rivka Holtzberg's father asked that girls and women be encouraged to light candles tonight (Friday night November 28) and include a prayer for the family.

If you'd like to light a candle for her soul and the soul of her husband and the other Jewish hostages that were murdered at Nariman House in Mumbai, targeted and murdered specifically because they were Jews, please join me in doing so on Saturday night November 29, 2008.

I'll also be lighting my candle for the other innocents murdered in that city and for those left behind in mourning.

The Rabbi and his wife had a little boy who is two years old. A very brave Indian woman who is believed to have been the cook at Nariman was able to save this little boy's life. He is now orphaned. To support their orphaned young boy please visit http://www.chabadindia.org/.

Deepak Chopra is WRONG!

No Deepak! It's the 25% of the world's Muslim population that, with their extremist leaders and policies have alientated the West, the TRUE multicultural peoples, from the Muslims. It's those extremist societies, those hateful societies that have directed our policies IN RESPONSE to their hate and murder and systemic hateful teachings against the West for the last 80-100 years.
Just visit Memritv.org or this link to see ONE of thousands of examples of this http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/1925.htm

Here's the transcript of that clip:

Following are excerpts from a program about Iranian children in the "Jerusalem Day" parade. The program aired on Jaam-e Jam 1 TV on September 25, 2008.

Interviewer: What's your boy's name, and how old is he?

Father: Soheil is one year old.

Interviewer: Why did you bring him along?

Father: In order to inject into his blood loathing for Israel from an early age.

Interviewer: Well done. Well done. What do you think is the greatest desire of the honorable people who gathered to join the parade marking International Jerusalem Day?

Father: Their greatest desires are the annihilation of Israel and the appearance of the Mahdi.


Interviewer: What's your name, my boy?

Mohammad: Mohammad.

Interviewer: [Your sign says]: "Death to Israel." Why did you come here today?

Mohammad: In order to...

Interviewer: To say "Death to Israel"? Go ahead.

Mohammad: "Death to Israel."

Interviewer: Well done. It's very interesting that little children, like this girl and this boy, are already experiencing the culture of unity and solidarity, alongside their parents and fellow citizens.


Interviewer: I found it very nice to meet a six-year-old girl called Rihaneh, who drew a picture about Jerusalem and the Palestinian people, and about how the defenseless Palestinian people defends itself. In it, we see a Palestinian soldier... or actually, a Palestinian youth, holding a weapon in his hands and firing at a tank of the plundering Israel. The Israeli tank is firing toward the young Palestinian. Rest assured that the blood of the martyrs, the efforts of the young Palestinians, and the support of the Muslims worldwide for the Palestinian people will not be in vain.

Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta For Today

Well all wonderful blog readers of mine...here's my submission

Hand In Glove

The young kid on the subway train was super happy to pose for this for me. He thought it was cool that his hand would be somewhere online. :-)

It's a little hard to see, but if you look at the hand furthest from the camera you'll see this is a glove-mitten.

I don't know about you but I thought this was the neatest idea. I heard recently that our hands stay warmer with mittens than gloves. But what adult can use mittens...we have to do things with our hands all the time...especially in NYC. You're fishing for your metrocard, or money or cell phone.

These gloves are semi-attached yet come off and pull back and let you use your digits for whatever you need and STILL cover most of your hand.

I asked where you can get them and was told H&M. I see a trip to that store soon on my list.

Carrie's Fiesta is on!

Beautiful Creation

I commissioned this necklace to be made specifically for me. I have been reading Aleta's blog for a few weeks now and really love her spirit/soul. And then I learned she makes jewelry.

Sadly my camera is having a bit of a fit with me and not completely capturing the color correctly. The crystals are lavender. So pretty.

I began looking around her jewelry site and saw she made some christian necklaces and asked on a whim if she could do something that was Jewish for me. I mentioned using a hamsa.

Immeditely she replied to me that she could do it and we began exchanging emails with details. I barely had to say a thing. It was as if she knew exactly what I wanted.

This necklace is made with fresh water pearls, swarwarski crystals and sterling silver.

I especially love the clasp. I don't know if it was done on purpose or not but I am calling this clasp the single girls clasp. It's perfect. I don't have to futz with the dooohicky to get it undone at the end of the day. And since I don't live with a roommate or partner that can help me this kind of clasp is the perfect thing and will allow me to wear and enjoy my new necklace more often.

I highly recommend that you visit her site and get a good idea of the work she can do, BY HAND and then contact her to commission your own necklace, earings, or bracelet for yourself or a loved one for the upcoming holidays.

Aleta has an amazing artistic eye and is caring and FAST.

From The Mail Bag

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband.

Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen.

'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don 't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!'
The wife stared at him.
'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?'

The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'


Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army.

On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb.
That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair.

On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush.
That afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth.

On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap.
The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.

What Generation Am I?

I found this through LadyBanana.

I'd say this is pretty much me. Although I detested the first question as I don't like any subculture crapola at all.

You Belong in the Baby Boomer Generation

You fit in best with people born between 1943 and 1960.

You are optimistic, rebellious, and even a little self centered.

You still believe that you will change the world.

You detest authority and rules. Deep down, you're a non conformist.

I found this one fun too.

You Are the Bow Pose

You are an open hearted person. You seek connections and make them easily.

You are naturally generous - especially with your love and your time.

You have a knack for thinking up interesting ideas. You are an inventor and a creator.

You approach everything in life with a relaxed attitude. You accept what you can't change.

And this:

The Ultimate Color Test

When you are at peace, you are:

Giving and unselfish

When you are moved to act, you are:

Giving and warm

When you are inspired, you are:

Spontaneous and adventurous

When your life is perfectly balanced, you are:

Totally in the moment

Your life's purpose is:

To change the world

And apparently this explains why I have so much time to do all these quizzes:

You Are 40% Weird

Normal enough to know that you're weird...

But too damn weird to do anything about it!

The Kittays Are Back

Here is KC eating Leo's tail as a little baby and a surprise shot of itty bitty Sadie as a kitten too. The babies were about 8 and 6 weeks old I think at the time I took this video.

The photos are from this week and they are both 7months and Leo is 1yr 7months.

Look, I'm Having A Bad Week!

Here's the deal peoples.........

I have a temper, I'm snarky and I'm opiniated... fuck off and get used to it.

I chatted a long time with a good blogger friend and I've really narrowed my frustration down. For me what it boils down to is respect or lack thereof.

I really am the kind of person who goes above and beyond for friends and family. No one has to ask me, I'll just do it.

Now many of my readers I think are the same way, which is why we bonded and why others have come and gone. I'm not going to mention the person but SHE knows who she is...for no reason went and did something really awesome for me. Didn't ask for didly in return. I know I can trust this person. I know her heart and soul is good. She didn't need to do what she did for me to know this...but it was just solidification.

On the other hand I have had far too many in my life whom I tried to forge friendships with. I've given free energy therapy sessions to them, their families...I've refused money, offered it on my time..given free classes. Now that's a business of mine, where I make some money, albeit not a lot and probably it's more a hobby to be honest...but still.

However when it came to be reciprical in nature if that at all, and rather something that might have even brought that same friend money by way of my posting an event on my blog, it was demanded of me that I not post my very own video of the night I spent out and I was accused of many things. Even so far as to contact youtube to have my own private videos I took myself, in a public place pulled down. Why? Because that person has a film production company and that person has a deal with youtube to film events and post for them and he felt I was somehow stealing from him.

What a crock of shit!

Forget, hey Lauren my cat is really sick...can you send healing energy please. Forget the free sessions I gave for hours in my home to said person's family.

Nope...it was all about this person, their company, their rights, even their lawyers words immediately IM'd to me.

I have to tell you all, that this type of situation handled in the rough manner that it was brought out the absolute worst in me. WORST.

I blog for fun. I haven't made a dime off my blog and never intended it for that purpose. I have a nice handful of subscribers and readers each day and that's about it folks.

Said person could not see the issue at hand...only had whatever was in their mind and always had something to say. NEVER listened. But then again that person NEVER listens to anyone. Is always ready for a quick retort. Never gives a rats as what anyone else has to say...that there might actually be some point there they never thought about that could make him stop and rethink whatever the issue is. NEVER. So why start now.

It's times like these that I go from zero -60 in 5 seconds flat. I just react...I show my temper, I get snarky and I tell the person to fuck off.

I don't think I honestly had a real friendship with this person to begin with. And as I read all of your blogs I see that many of you have a few close good friends and a ton of family you spend time with. And I understand why.

Your friendship online, blogging, has been so enourmous to me. I am ever so grateful. Because each of you have taken the time to know me, accept me and ask for nothing in return but friendship back.

Regulators nix credit card debt forgiveness plan

This is what happens when you give carte blanche to any ONE party especially the democRATS!

Pelosi will push for BILLIONS in more and more bailouts for the auto industry, wall street banks that stole your money, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that lined HER pocket like Raines who is in bed with not only her and Frank but your beloved savior Obama!

And they will all keep averting your attention by focusing your mindless brain on anti-Israel garbage that will get you all riled up.

But to you -- the little person, the consumer who had no choice but to go into more and more debt you get NADA! TOUGH SHIT and YOU voted for this. SUCKERS.

You'll get nothing and like it.

Wordless Wednesday

Almost wordless Wednesday. Don't forget to read the post just below this one. {snicker}

Letter From The Boss

As the CFO of this business that employees 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama will be our next President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure that the Clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8% but since we cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who will have to go.

So, this is what I did. I strolled thru our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. These folks wanted change; I gave it to them.
If you have a better idea, let me know.

America Is A Racist Nation?

Before the elections were over I posted a survey asking what you all wanted to hear more of from me. The results show that you want more of my antics around the city and more political posts. On November 6th I posted "I won't let this happen" and in the comment section I was asked to please keep writing about my thoughts and feelings on the political sitatuations that are happening. So as a mixed bag blogger, I am going to incorporate those posts into the rest of the other topics I bring each day.

I do not promise not to offend anyone. If you're offended and can't hear my side of things then so be it. Switch to another person's blog. I will welcome your comments as long as they are respectful. I am not going to get into heated debates on the comment section either. If that's something you desire...MOVE ON! I'll go a round of tit for tat but not much past that point.

On to today's topic:

So apparently American IS a racist nation. You know I am going to agree with that statement but not for the reasons many people would initially think.

On just about every news channel and even Comedy Central's Chocolate News, all you heard was how this was such a big moment for HISTORY. "We made history" What was the difference? The race of the man elected. That's it folks. RACE.


"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

The day that THIS happens is when true history will be made!

If you were one of the millions of people who could have voted before this years election but did not register to vote previously but voted this year...you did so because of race. That's racist and racism. You judged and voted based on the color of someone's skin.

"I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers."

History will be made when that truly happens.

Not when we elect a man that writes this in his recent memoir:
"It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.” He added: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. "

If you thought the electing of this black man was somehow an advancedment for the kids today who are bi-racial think again:
"While in college, Obama wrote(he) disapproved of what he called other “half-breeds” who gravitated toward whites instead of blacks."

The day after the election a white woman said to me, "It's a good thing for America that Obama won." I asked her why. She replied, "Because he is black." Then I heard her say to another person in the room, "Can you believe the United States elected a black man. This country elected a black man. I never thought I'd see it because we are such a racist nation."

This got me thinking. Where does all this midguided perception come from? It's really so insane.

First: Please tell me what Western Nation before November 4, 2008 has elected a black man as the leader of their country? England has a large population of blacks. France has a large percentage of blacks. Europeans are always making charges about American culture and race issues at us. Where's their black president?

Second: I never hear people say that they never see any Asian people in high government positions. But really there are so few if any. Doesn't that count for racism? No one seems to give a rats ass about that?

I've never see a Jew get elected to a high office either. When Lieberman ran for VP with Gore there was such talk about it possibly hurting his chances of winning.

Third: We've never see a woman elected to VP or President. Never. Ferraro was the Democratic nominee way back when...and Palin who was crucified for not being seen as pro women's issues ran this year with McCain on the Republican ticket. Hillary saw her chances of being President stolen from her with trickery tactics (Florida and Michigan primaries) and sexism. Although I would not have voted for her I think she would have made an awesome President. She had the experience and knowledge to run this country and our President-elect does not.

So yes, we live in a racist nation. We have a generation of young new voters who haven't the brains to understand that they are extremely racist because they voted for a man simply because he is black and they believe that they needed to show the world that they didn't care if he was black. Therefore they voted based on race. RACISM.

9 Things I Hate About Everyone

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too".
Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is.
Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their asses!

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that? " No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!' Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8. When people say "life is short".
What the hell?? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?"
If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?

Gays And Obama

I lost a new friend over this election. He is a gay man and I tried to have discussions with him about the actual issues. I showed him many a story including the information about the University of Deleware's policy on indoctrination of all students that whites are by birth and culture racist including if you are gay. I am paraphrasing of course but you can do a google search to see this for yourself.

I tried really hard to show him that the Democrats especially Obama and his supporters do not support him in being gay or giving him the right to gay marriage.

His response was that I am so negative.

Well well...sadly I was correct. In California this election cycle, while so many came out in droves to support Obama and make him our next president, the same supporters...the Obamanites overwhelmingly voted in favor of Prop 8 banning gay marriage.

Hate to say I Told You So...

Truth hurts doesn't it?

The Fuck Factor

I'm coining a new term. It's called the "fuck factor."

What is this fuck factor you ask? Besides an excuse to keep typing the word fuck...

Whether you are single or married or childless or have a gaggle of kids...you too can participate in the fuck factor...but it's really not by choice.

Last week out of the blue I arrived home after working in the city and found Sadie rubbing her eye. Rubbing and rubbing and rubbing and rubbing it. And then I saw that she could not open her eye. So she looked like pirate kitty.

I had some eye drops for her from a previous incident when she was an itty bitty that fit into my hand and I started to use them on her eye. The Vet's office was closed for the night and I had to wait until the next day to call. When I did call the office on Saturday the technician scared the bejeeebers outta me about eye infections and eye ulcers and not to give the drops until we knew what it was and that I had to bring her in that day and could not wait until Sunday when the Vet would be back in the office.


And there you have the fuck factor. You have your budget set for that week or month, it's tight-enough as it is. You owe ever fucking dollar you already bring in to the electric company, rent man, cable company, credit cards etc...you finally think you have everything covered and you're so happy about it and FUCK FUCK FUCK.

As it turned out Sadie had conjunctivitis and they told me to use the drops I already had.
"That'll be $55 for today's office visit." FUCK FUCK FUCK!

Share your fuck factor stories with us. :)

Pet Prayes & Blessings

A good spiritual friend of mine Victor Fuhrman and his wife Laurie Sue Brockway wrote the book Pet Prayers & Blessings.

And recently I was honored to be at their book signing and hear them read some passages as well as tell their own personal stories.

On a very personal note, Vic was with Olivia and myself on the day she passed on. (see the sidebar for one of her last photos) He never asked for anything in return for coming from his job, to our home to sit with her and say prayers and blessings and help her leave this earth without fear. He was a huge comfort to me as well and there will never be the proper words to show my gratitude for his services that day.

Here are two teasers I am certain you will enjoy. The book is in hardcover and is only $15. Run don't walk!

Blogs That Helped Me Keep My Sanity

Over the last few months I heavily wrote on this blog about the political situation and my findings and beliefs based on my own research from many sources: some mainstream and some very off the talking points blogs and sites. I truly believe myself to be an independent thinker. Where else would you get to read the ramblings of a:
Guiliani-Clinton-Bloomberg-Lieberman-McCain Democrat?

I'm staunchly pro-choice, but some of my best bloggy friends are not and we respectfully disagree. Key word RESPECTFULLY!

I'm also in favor of gay marriage for the same reasons I am pro-choice. And I am NOT going to write about the whys today!

Today I am bringing you links to my favorite blogs that kept me sane during all the heavy writing and thoughts and worries during this latest election. While I slowly work my way back to my mixed bag blogging efforts and bring you to some fun interesting things I find around NYC and share with you funny photos and videos of my kitties, I'll be reading these folks every day and hope you'll be there with me as well.

I'm billing these two bloggers together. For without BOTH these people whom I have gotten the supreme support from in ways I feel incredibly blessed about, I would have gone batty. Contrary to what my blog stalkers think about me, no that did NOT happen.
Crotchety Old Man Yells At Cars who STILL owes me a bag of chocolate I won and WitsBitch are THE funniest blogs I have yet to read. They write simple posts that don't require heavy thinking. You will find yourself laughing hard and possibly peeing in your pants. Wednesdays is Caption This over at Crotchety's and I am going to run the same contest on Friday's along with my Friday Foto Fiesta I join in at Carrie's.

Which brings me to Carrie. Carrie writes the most interesting ancedotes about her life and revelations she has about being a mom, daughter and wife. She's witty and funny and just a delightful read. She is innovative and is the founder of the Friday Foto Fiesta AND even started an online camp.

I have a few more that I will be telling you about but I don't want any of them to lose their rightful place by getting lost in a long post. So please go say hello to the bloggers I wrote about today and start enjoying their blogs if you haven't already. Stay tuned this week for more great blogs I will be featuring.

Bracelet Giveaway

Aleta over at Fleur de Aleta is giving away a really gorgeous bracelet that she made out of crystals.

Now of course I want the bracelet myself but would like to join in and complete her contest requirements by letting all of you know about this fantastic giveaway contest too.

Besides this particular giveaway, Aleta is a fun read. She gives you her daily antics and you fall in love with Greg just as she has. How could you not do so when her blog is really her very open heart?

Go take a look and may the best entry (mine-haha) win!

Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta -FUN FUN

I'm back!

Don't forget to join in the fun at Carrie's Friday Foto Fiesta.

Why is this one of my favorite fotos?

Really you need to ask?

I'm doing the caption this contest today. Yes yes it says nude driver...BUT I'm asking for your captions.

The last winner didn't have an entrecard account and although I asked her to start one and get back to me I didn't hear from her SO...this weeks contest winner will get 200 entrecard points instead of 100. Second and third will get 50 entrecard points and 25 entrecard points.

I'll announce the winner on Monday.

I Won't Let It Happen

"Don't let the same bitterness seen in so many liberals, that nasty venom and vitriol so artfully concealed behind empty smiles and yoga pants and gritty spirulina smoothies, don't let it seep into your daily lives. Don't allow it to happen."

As the nasty comments to my blog start to roll in, simply because I did not support the winning candidate and for what I strongly believe to be very good reasons I will live life and encourage others to live life with the above quoted ideals.

I already received ONE very nasty hateful comment. I am sure more will roll in. There are millions of deranged people who now feel empowered by the new president elect, to behave and live in a MEANFUl way rather than meaningful way.

To paraphrase Sharpton and his cronies, "take a group of people, and teach them how disenfranchised they are and you have a movement."

We saw this in 1939 and we saw it again on the election day. "I, for one, have already lost confidence in the process. Wisconsin is corrupt." - James T. Harris

Jesse Jackson's tears would have been non existant has it been Mr. Harris himself who was the first African American to be voted as the next President of the United States. For him and those like him, it's not about having a black man in the highest office. It's just a tactic for the true movement they seek to impose in order to gain power.

I would have tearfully pulled the lever for James T. Harris, who has good in his heart and is righteous.

Obama bin Lyin

Offensive Use Of Sarah Palin Image For Advertising On NYC Subway

I find this appauling. Just appauling. Not only are they showing their bias and basically campaigning for a certain candidate disguised as an advertising campaign for their company...they attach a no choice button on her lapel!

What's more limited than Manhattan Mini Storage's intellectual and analytic capabilities? Barak Obama's executive experience...much much more limited than Sarah Palin's extensive executive experience in government.

Go John McCain and Sarah Palin.

I Voted!

I was third on line. This is what it looked like when I left. This was taken from my cell phone.

Post In Response To Pat


I currently cannot get onto my site's comments to respond to you there. I am not calling you out but want to address some things with you.

The topics you bring up sound good in theory but when you actually analyze what is being said and the facts and figures it doesn't add up.

You seem to try to dismiss Tiffany's response, which I asked her to post on my behalf because I can't access that page at this time, by saying you don't understand her point. Clearly you either truly don't understand what an analogy is, which is worrisome in itself or you're just being facetious.

Obama's economic plan is not a plan at all but a theory. It's a theory based on Marxism and Tiffany's story uses a story to illustrate Obama's economic theory. But I am sure you did understand that.

I want the middle class to grow too. But the reality is that it doesn't grow by taxing the rich even more. This didn't work under Carter and infact it had devistating results. Long long gas lines, high inflation and unemployment rates that were high.

Even Charlie Gibson (see earlier post on my site for youtube video) pointed this out in the debates between Obama and Clinton, that by lowering the capital gains taxes (usually only people with some kind of money pay) that the revenues in this country went up. It went up under Bill Clinton and G.W. Bush.

Tiffany's story shows just what the reality is when you impose the ideology to charge one group more so that another can be given a bigger piece of the pie.

The only reality that comes from Marxist/socialist policies is that to even the playing field MORE people have less. AND an even smaller amount have more than they do now. Further dividing the economic classes.

If socialism works so well, please tell me why most of the Americas are full of extremely poor people?

Now I know it's a tactic by Obama insiders, to come to as many blogs such as mine at the last hour to try to take over the topics and persuade McCain supporters that we should not vote the way we are. I know you are paid to do this. So I am telling you I won't allow my site to be a part of this. I'll let a little debate happen but what you want is something altogether different. You know it and I know it too!

Obama Admits To Bankrupting Coal Miners And Related Jobs to Coal Mining

I Don't Look Like A McCain Supporter? WTF

I just returned from the local grocery store. At the check out a white male about 45-50 makes a big deal out of looking at my McCain/Palin button and says to me, a complete stranger, "You don't look like a McCain supporter!"

I replied,"Oh really why not?"

And this was his answer, "You look like a nice person that's why."

So I said that I wasn't drinking the kool aid. And then I said the following, "McCain is a good man and all his colleagues say the same."

The man agreed, yes yes it's true, "But aren't you worried about Palin being president?"

Me, "No sir, she has more experience than Obama does." And he asked me the same question and I replied in the same way.

As I walked out he said something about 1984 again. I just wished him a good day. I should have said I'd rather have 1984 than 1979 all over again.

The logic of this moron! He is lecturing me about being a nice person and yet the audacity and hypocricy of saying what he said to a complete stranger. MORON IS AS MORON DOES!

I think that you should have to pass a logic test to be able to vote.


They Wouldn't Be My Friends

WOW really? If someone doesn't agree with your politics "they wouldnt be my friends." Really this is what democracy is supposed to be about?? That is American values? What kind of fucking bullshit has this nation become that this is ok?

...Then There Is No Excuse Why These Homeless People Are Still Homeless

Better Late Than Never Halloween Political Cartoons That Rock

Michelle Obama Says...

Another reason not to vote in Obama. Listen all you Obaminites. This is on the guestbook at the site linked above. Look at what he has inspired in your fellow supporters. Is this REALLY the way you want to live. Turning one neighbor in after another to your government? REALLY? Did you ever hear or see this when Kerry ran or Clinton or under the years that Clinton was president? Are these really your values? THIS is what is at stake. Not healthcare, not the economy! THIS! This is the ONLY change you are going to see. You will be voting willingly for a government that accepts this...this is what happened in Cuba during their revolution and continues to this day.

Watch the clip. Then go here.

If Only Some Adults Would Take A Lesson From These Kids

Adults I know have given the following reasons for voting for Obama:
I hate Bush.
I am against the war.
McCain's too old.
And my favorite one...
I have to vote democrate because I always vote democrate.
They are all the same so what I am voting democrat.

Oh yeah...those are well thought out reasons.
I can't say I agree with the majority of these children but listen to them. Just listen to them. They think. Maybe it's time you did half as much thinking as these kids before you step into that voting booth on November 4th.
