A Stitch In Time


We have seen how Obama and his minions have attacked Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber. Now they go after Barbara West and threaten her TV station. The state sponsored LA Times won't release the damning tape of the Messiah and his associates. The death of the first amendment.

Will they come for me? I had a couple of Obama supporters threaten to call the feds and shut down my blog already. If the Chosen one is President, will I be required to wear a star or other symbol on my clothes?

Obama the anti-semite on video.

Lie, cheat, and steal The democrat way.

Heaven and Hell

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

'Welcome to heaven,' says St. Peter. 'Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you'

'No problem, just let me in,' says the man.

'Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.'

'Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in n heaven,' says the senator.

'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.'

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself
in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians
who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises...

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

'Now it's time to visit heaven.'

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

'Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.'

The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: 'Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but
I think I would be better off in hell.'

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.

He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder.
'I don't understand,' stammers the senator. 'Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and
caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable.

What happened?'

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, 'Yesterday we were campaigning...

Today you voted.'

Complete Transformation

With the coming of the Messiah, I have seen the light and will complete my transformation. I am going to become a liberal democrat. I figure it is better to join them now than wait to be converted under a boot heel.


Are you crazy? My wife asked..........Crazy like a fox, I say. Throw away your bra and stop shaving. Saggy tits and hairy pits will be your sacrifice to demonstrate solidarity with our new family. (She did draw the line on the bull dyke mullet)

In a few weeks I will close my doors and tell my associates that their services will no longer be required. I will lose most of my customers after his coronation, I mean inauguration anyway.


I left the Republican party a few years ago over their open border, spend like Democrat ways so I am only moving a little more down the food chain. I will head over the border and denounce my citizenship. I want to be an illegal Alien! I know I heard the song that its no fun being an illegal alien, but I beg to differ.

I'll come home and mortgage my house to the hilt and then cry that I cannot pay and ask for a revaluation and break on my payments. Then I will apply for food stamps, ACHHS, Welfare, and whatever else good Democrats do to be part of the "in" crowd. Shoot, health care will be free and I won't get so pissed at all the lazy illegals anymore, cause I will be one of them.

I have never missed a day of work in over 19 years for illness or injury. I have enough bad x rays to make Evel Knievel wince, so next up is Social Security disability. What the hell I earned it. I want mine and I want it NOW!

So I am ready to have the wealth spread on me, tax those dirty rich Republicans and make them pay. Barney says they are undertaxed and Joe says it would be unpatriotic for them not to pony up. Hard work and dedication are not to be tolerated. They must be punished!

I can see it all now, seven days a week off, drinking 40's waiting for my checks. I am so ready to be a Democrat. Do I really only bathe in months that don't end in R though ?.....................Yuck.

BONUS: I also get 18 months free BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) to blame all my ills and shortcomings on George Bush.

Say What?

Senator Biden,


What exactly was that gibberish that came out of your mouth,? I think it was an endorsement for McCain. If that was anybody but you or the Messiah the press would have ran you out of town. More hypocrisy from the left and the main stream media.

"And here's the point I want to make. Mark my words. Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he's gonna have to make some really tough - I don't know what the decision's gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it's gonna happen. I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate. And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you, not financially to help him, we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right. Because all these decisions, all these decisions, once they're made if they work, then they weren't viewed as a crisis. If they don't work, it's viewed as you didn't make the right decision, a little bit like how we hesitated so long dealing with Bosnia and dealing with Kosovo, and consequently 200,000 people lost their lives that maybe didn't have to lose lives. It's how we made a mistake in Iraq. We made a mistake in Somalia. So there's gonna be some tough decisions. They may emanate from the Middle East. They may emanate from the sub-continent. They may emanate from Russia's newly-emboldened position because they're floating in a sea of oil."

More nonsense from the pro-abortion Catholic:

Noting that he's a practicing Irish-Catholic, the Delaware lawmaker said, "Let's not be, for those of a different faith remember St. Peter denied Christ thrice, you know? We don't need anybody denying us, this is gonna be tough. There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go 'whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision.' Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."

"I probably shouldn't have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here," the senator said.

"All kidding aside, these guys have left us in a God-awful place. We have the ability to straighten it out. It's gonna take a little bit of time, so I ask you to stay with us. Stay with us."

And with that, he handed the mic back to Cantwell.

Two Thumbs Down

The American Spectator
Obama Couldn't Be Cleared

Posted by George H. Wittman on 10.17.08 @ 6:07AM

The lowest-ranking enlisted persons in the Armed Forces of the United States who are expected to handle sensitive matters in the scores of jobs involving classified equipment or written material must be investigated before obtaining their security clearance. Could Barack Obama gain such a clearance?

To begin, the clearance applicant would have to complete a detailed personal history form that includes, if necessary, government access to all health and education files. This is the starting point of all security investigations. Top Secret clearance involves a field investigation rather than the Secret version that is usually limited to a "name check" that is a basic police and public information file review. For the TS clearance an investigator will visit the home neighborhoods and work place sites of the applicant in search of supportive and/or derogatory references.

If the clearance is extended further into the handling of information of such importance that it requires a compartmented distribution, the field and document investigation is pursued with considerable vigor over a lengthy period of time. Nuclear and other sensitive technical or political matters fall into this category.

In all cases, whether on the lower level or up to the most sensitive intelligence, the background of the applicant's personal and business involvement forms the nucleus of the initial phase of the investigation. The people with whom the applicant associates lead the investigator to personal connections and matters relative to the individual's character, beliefs and past acts appropriate to matters of security.

Eligibility for clearance at all levels is directly influenced by the people with whom one associates. Yes, who your friends are and have been does count -- a great deal. This is true, of course, in many types of police investigations where suspicion is adequate reason for further inquiry. In matters of security clearance, past associations often can mean the end of the process rather than just the beginning.

Considering Barack Obama as a candidate for a top secret security clearance status with a full array of compartmented clearances, one has to be cognizant of the fact that there is considerable evidence of associations and even assistance from individuals with past criminal records or who have expressed anti-American beliefs. Obviously admitted domestic terrorists William Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn, as well as recently convicted felon, Antoin "Tony" Rezko, fall into this category.

There is no possibility that a Top Secret clearance would be awarded to a member of the Armed Forces whose background included such associations. An intelligence service clearance for the handling of highly classified material would be totally out of the question.

IF THERE IS SOME hesitancy to accept that Barack Obama's associations would have precluded his obtaining a TS clearance with compartmented information access, it should be realized he would have had to pass both a polygraph test and a personal psychological evaluation. What are the chances of his being willing to take these tests, to say nothing of his passing, in light of his refusal even to make his educational records available?

It may be deemed unfair, but a child of an American mother and a foreign-born non-U.S. citizen father always receives additional scrutiny. So does the fact that questions have arisen concerning the source of funding for Obama's law school education. According to a well-researched article by Kenneth Timmerman (Newsmax), Obama was assisted financially by Khalid al-Mansour through the latter's rich Saudi contacts. Mansour has been referred to as a "Black Nationalist and a Black Muslim" who was a mentor to the founders of the radical Black Panther Party of the 1960s.

All of these matters would have arisen in a normal security clearance. The harsh truth is that the United States is willing to accept presidential candidates like Barack H. Obama who could never gain a Top Secret clearance if he was simply a U.S. Army enlisted man. And yet Obama wants to be Commander-in-Chief. Something is wrong here!

Ignorance Defined

A comment left on American Dinosaur:

David says,

"How does Obama know about the middle class? Wait a second... how the hell does McCain know? He's worked for the government or the military his whole life, born into it, and married into wealth. He knows nothing about making it in the real world, without his dad's reputation keeping him from being booted out of the air force. Seriously, he crashed two planes before he ever saw combat; he was an incompetent pilot that was only kept in the sky by his Admiral father. Obama's the one that had to bootstrap himself up to where he is."

I say:


I think you made typo.....Quote:
Obama's the one that had to bootstrap himself up to where he is.

That should have been:
Obama's the one that had to bootlick himself through Chicago politics up to where he is.

What I should have said was this............
David, I have a question for you. What do Rickenbacker, Voss, Udet, Luke, Richthofen, Yeager, Hughes, Bush Sr. Hartmann, Galland, Bong, etc, and those are just off the top of my head, all have in common with John McCain? Answer: They all are pilots, many of them the finest aces in history that have crashed one or many aircraft. You ignorance of history is dispicable. What do you know of real men that do dangerous things to defend your right to be an asshole?

The closest you have ever come to being shot down is when you hit on a stewardess after a few to many white zinfandels and she told you no.........Real men in times of war break things and hurt people, that sometimes includeds themselves. Only one in a million have the skills to fly fighters on and off a carrier. Ever seen it done? I have from the flight deck underway. If you ever did you would shut your silly childish piehole and beg the men and women who defend your sorry ass for forgiveness.

The last Words

From the Boston Globe

Army Specialist and blogger Stephen Fortunato was killed earlier this week in Afghanistan when the vehicle he was riding in was s truck by a roadside bomb. His mother shared a blog entry with the Boston Globe, which Stephen had written in August. According to BostonHerald.com: "He was killed on his first day back on patrol after a 19-day leave in Massachusetts. Fortunato was in the 26th Infantry Regiment and served as a gunner in back of a Humvee. He had served in Afghanistan since July.

"If I may...

I`d like to say something....Just to get it out there so it is clear.
To all the pampered and protected Americans who feel it is their duty to inform me that I am not fighting for their freedom, and that i am a pawn in Bush`s agenda of greed and oil acquisition: Noted, and [expletive deleted] You.

I am not a robot. i am not blind or ignorant to the state of the world or the implications of the " war on terrorism." i know that our leaders have made mistakes in the handling of a very sensitive situation, but do not for one second think that you can make me lose faith in what we, meaning America`s sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers in uniform are doing.

I am doing my part in fighting a very real enemy of the United States, i.e. Taliban, Al Qaida, and various other radical sects of Islam that have declared war on our way of life. Unless you believe the events of 9/11 were the result of a government conspiracy, which by the way would make you a MORON, there is no reasonable argument you can make against there being a true and dangerous threat that needs to be dealt with. i don`t care if there are corporations leaching off the war ef fort to make money, and i don`t care if you don`t think our freedom within America`s borders is actually at stake. i just want to kill those who would harm my family and friends. it is that simple. Even if this is just a war for profit or to assert America`s power, so what? Someone has to be on top and I want it to be us. There`s nothing wrong with wishing prosperity for your side."

"I am a proud American. i believe that my country allows me to live my life more or less however i want to, and believe me, i have seen what the alternative of that looks like. i also believe that our big scary government does way more than it has to to help complete [expletive deleted]-ups get back on their feet, a stark comparison to places where leaders just line their own pockets with gold while allowing the people who gave them their power and privilage to starve. I have chosen my corner. I back my country, and am proud to defend it against aggressors. Also, if you dare accuse us of being inhumane, or overly aggressive because we have rolled into someone else's country and blown some [expletive deleted] up and shot some people, let me remind you of just how inhumane we COULD be in defending ourselves. Let me remind you that we have a warhead that drops multiple bomblets from the stratosphere which upon impact, would turn all the sand in Iraq to glass, and reduce every living thing there to dust. Do we use it? No. Instead we use the most humane weapon ever devised: the American soldier. We send our bravest (and perhaps admitably craziest) men and women into enemy territory, into harms way, to root out those whom we are after and do our best to leave innocent lives unscathed.

...One last thing...a proposal. i know it has been stated time and time again but i just think it is worthy of reiteration. If you find yourself completely disgusted with the way America is being ran, and how we handle things on the global stage, you can leave. Isn't that amazing? No one will stop you! If you are an anarchist, there are places you can go where there is no government to tell you anything. That's right...you are left solely to your own devices and you can handle the men who show up at your door with AKs in any way that you see fit. Just don't try good old American debate tactics on them because you will most likely end up bound and blind-folded, to have your head chopped off on the internet so your parents can see it. However if you insist on staying here and taking advantage of privilages such as free speach and WIC, keep the counter-productive [expletive deleted] to a minimum while the grown ups figure out how to handle this god-awful mess in the middle east."

God Bless him and may he rest in peace................

I Am Joe The Plumber

Just like the old game show What's My Line.........

I am Joe the Plumber. Well not really, but I do own a small business. I have owned and operated it for 19 years and 10 months. All without the help of the U.S. government, I have never taken a thing from them but they sure as hell have had their hand in my pocket.

My question is......Senator Obama, what the hell do you really know about the middle class? You have used that term a great deal lately because your handlers have told you that is where victory lies. You and I are the same age but you don't know shinola about the middle class. Ever made payroll? Hired or fired people that really needed a job? Lived well when things were good and ate pot pies when things were tough, well I have.

I know all about your past, where you went to school and who you got your help and advice from. I grew up the youngest of seven children, the son of another middle class small businessman. I learned that your word was your bond and a handshake was good enough. I learned that you did not lie, cheat, or steal from your customers. I learned to live within my means in a modest home and sold possessions when I had to pay my bills. Not to stop default mind you, so I would not be LATE on my obligations.

So I ask you this......What experience do you have to tell Joe the plumber that he needs to share the wealth with those who have not earned it? Nothing because you have never had to earn it. I saw you mocking him on the television today, well you were mocking me as well. Your arrogance and condescension are a slap in the face to all of us that you hope to represent. You don't know me at all. I don't want or need your help, as a matter of fact I fear your further interference in my life.

Pardon me if this is neither eloquent or stylish, I did not go to Harvard, I went to a public high school. I don't have people write speeches for me or a teleprompter, just a keyboard. But I can spot a fraud and a liar and you sir, Mr. Obama are one. Wouldn't it be delicious to have you denied the most powerful job in the world by a plumber?

You are making promises you can't keep with money you don't have, I hope you are looking for a job in a few weeks.

I am Joe

Wall Street


Once upon a time in a place overrun with monkeys, a man appeared and announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around, went out to the forest, and started catching them. The man bought thousands at $10 and as supply started to diminish, they became harder to catch, so the villagers stopped their effort.

The man then announced that he would now pay $20 for each one. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. But soon the supply diminished even further and they were ever harder to catch, so people started going back to their farms and forgot about monkey catching.

The man increased his price to $25 each and the supply of monkeys became so sparse that it was an effort to even see a monkey, much less catch one.

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys for $50!

However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on his behalf.

While the man was away the assistant told the villagers. 'Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has bought. I will sell them to you at $35 each and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50 each.'

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all the monkeys. They never saw the man nor his assistant again and once again there were monkeys everywhere.

Now you have a better understanding of how the stock market works.

The Finger

Walter Williams points the finger at who caused this mess..........The DEMOCRATS!

"In my more cynical moments, I think that we Americans deserve what we get from our politicians, many of whom can be generally described as nothing less than loathsome. You say, "Williams, that's a pretty heavy putdown." My question to you is how else would you describe these congressmen who are now blaming the financial mess on the failure of the free market? Starti ng with the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977, that was given more teeth during the Clinton administration, Congress started intimidating banks and other financial institutions into making loans, so-called subprime loans, to high-risk homebuyers and businesses. The carrot offered was that these high-risk loans would be purchased by the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Anyone with an ounce of brains would have known that this was a prescription for disaster but there was a congressional chorus of denial."

"Five years ago, Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) vouched for the "soundness" of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and said, "I do not see any possibility of serious financial losses to the treasury." In 2004 congressional hearings, where the Bush administ ration sought greater oversight over Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said, "We do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac and particularly at Fannie Mae," adding that "the GSEs have exceeded their housing goals." Congressman Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) said, "There's nothing wrong with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac." In these hearings Barney Frank said that he doesn't see "anything in the reports that raises safety and soundness problems." Earlier this year, Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) praised Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for "riding to the rescue" to help people get home mortgage loans, adding that they "need to do more" to help high-risk borrowers get better loans.

The financial collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is not a failure of the free market be cause lending institutions in a free market would not have taken on the high-risk loans. They were forced to by the heavy hand of government. The solution is not a taxpayer-financed bailout. The solution is to let them fail and allow the people who invested in them, as well as the people who purchased homes they couldn't afford, suffer the losses. Of course that takes a level of political courage that is in short supply. There are other measures that should be taken as part of a second-best solution.

In 2002, when the Enron and WorldCom scandal broke, the Congress held hearings and some chief executives were jailed. Who did what was the big story in the major news media almost every night. Congress rushed to enact the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, also known as the Public Company Accounti ng Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002. The act placed unnecessary, onerous and costly accounting standards on American businesses. The Enron and WorldCom debacle is a drop in the bucket compared to the financial mess that Congress has created through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, in the name of "affordable" housing. Have you heard Congress calling for hearings? They haven't called for hearings because many of them, both Democrats and Republicans, receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars, were in cahoots with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. If Americans are going to be on the hook to bail out these government-sponsored enterprises, at the minimum congressional hearings ought to be held to find out who did what and when.

Corporations employ accounting practices promulgated by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) that established Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and government agencies have accounting practices that don't come close to, and never did, the honesty of private accounting practices. Accounting fraud and deception are the dominant features of government agencies. If a private business kept and cooked the books, like government agencies do, the top executives would go to jail. Shouldn't the accounting standards businesses have to meet be applied to Washington? My answer is yes and if a congressman says no, I'd like for him to tell us why."

Why We Must Drill

If there was ever a case for energy self-suffciency and drilling at home it was never more apparent than today. The world is staggering from a global economic crisis and THESE SCUMBAGS are twisting it off even more. So much for their concern for their customers. Much of this crisis was fueled by the greed and short sighted policies of OPEC and other oil rich nations. They knew that the world market could not afford $147 a barrel oil and that price was not sustainable. We have got to get away from those who seek our destruction inside and outside our shores.

Let Me Get This Straight

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain is proposing a $300 billion program for the federal government to buy up bad home mortgages and allow homeowners to keep their houses.

McCain said: "Until we stabilize home values in America, we're never going to start turning around and creating jobs and fixing our economy and we've got to get some trust and confidence back to America."

In an unusual step, McCain announced the plan during Tuesday's debate. He said that as president he would direct the federal government to purchase mortgages directly from homeowners and mortgage providers. The loans would be replaced with fixed-rate mortgages, ostensibly at a loss to the government.

"Is it expensive? Yes," McCain said."

Let me get this straight, I live in a modest affordable home for twenty years, I owe less money on my house than my truck and the Gubberment is going to reward all those who are in way over the head with my money. What do I get? Yep screwed again...................Somebody please pour a bucket of cold water on me and wake me up from this nightmare.

I guess I will go out and mortgage my house to the hilt and wait for the Candyman, because the candyman can fix it with love and make the world taste good!

We are alone, there is no one in Washington that gives a shit about you anymore.

Bring Me the Head Of Jamie Gorelick

"Many of you have not seen the story about the Nine Billion dollars of Fannie Mae profits that have not been accounted for. Franklin Raines steps down with over a million a year in retirement plus benefits after his five year stint as CEO, despite the fact that he and his buddies ran it into the ground. A former Clintonista, Raines should be in jail for bilking the taxpayers out of billions. That is only part of the story. It gets better, much better.

Remember Jamie "The Wall" Gorelick of 9/11 comission fame? The very same Jamie "The Wall" Gorelick that suddenly stepped down from her position as a Vice Chairman last year of......Fannie Mae! I wonder how deep she is in this mess, she sure has thrown around alot of money. The audacity she has displayed in her 9/11 Comission attack on Ashcroft and Rice came from her extensive background working for Dewey Cheatim and Howe, who also benefited from a relationship with Jamie "The Wall" Gorelick. The very same lady that was a potential Cabinet member for Kerry .This ridiculous conflict of interest will probably get little or no attention in the MSM as she is too much of a Washington insider. What a crock!"

We will see who gets thrown out the EU Lifeboat as its every man for himself. Speaking of himself, mister I can't do anything wrong who recently can't do anything right Mr. Cramer ran around sceaming The Sky is Falling!

This quote about oil consumption in China:

"Analysts are watching oil demand from China -- which helped fuel a 6-year rally in commodities -- for signs the crisis is hitting consumption.

The world's No. 2 consumer will not import gasoline for the second straight month and instead export the fuel due to heavy domestic stockpiles and a dip in demand.

"I think the market's starting to build this into prices,"

Wonder how their economy is really doing?

An American Carol

I took my wife and we went and saw An American Carol this afternoon. It was better than I thought it would be and not as bad as I feared. About 75 to 100 people in the theater. The movie was funny in spots and lagged in others. I hope you all go see it to support those brave enough to make it. The message sometimes overwhelmed the comedy but it is a good message. I think the problem is we are so sick of the liberal agenda that what should be funny hits too close to home and we realize how far we have fallen. A solid 2nd amendment push and blasting the ACLU lawyer Zombies with Trenchguns is worth the ticket.

In A Nutshell

Michael Malone:

"From where I sit, the United States government has embarked on two pieces of social engineering in the last few years. One was to make oil expensive as expensive as possible to drive people to greater use of alternative energy sources – because anything less would be irresponsible and destructive to the environment. The other was to enshrine home ownership (i.e., easy-to-obtain mortgages) as a new American right – because anything less would be unequal and racist.

None of us voted on these decisions – indeed, neither was even spoken about directly, much less debated. But nevertheless, both became national policy . . .and both have sparked national, now international, crises. Then, once they became crises, both were blamed on ‘greedy capitalism’, instead of what they really were: legislative interference into market forces. . . . To my mind, what makes this economic crisis different from ones in even the recent past is that it has exposed the fact that there are, apparently, no real leaders left in Washington – that the intellectual capital in the National Capitol has fallen to a new low – if that’s possible. Most of all, it shows that we can no longer look to D.C. for leadership into the rest of the 21st century."

American Dream RIP

Say goodbye to the American dream, it passed away today with the largest swing to socialism since the New Deal. This is only the beginning and will only serve to encourage those who defied the Constitution and stripped away the foundation of free enterprise. The wolves that were guarding the henhouse are the very same ones who stole the money to fix the problem they created. In a few months they will vote for more money to fix other things that responsible taxpayers did not create.
Where are the heads on plates? Dodd, Frank, Raynes, Gorelick and all the other culprits that fed at the public teat. To loan money to those who could not or would not pay, all in the name of social justice. If you thought your money was almost worthless, hang on to your lugnuts, cause it is the the tip of bailout iceberg. Banks, automakers, insurance companies will all stand in line for a handout. They will get it to, because we Americans are no longer responsible for ourselves. Big Brother is here and he ain't never gonna leave now.
The Republicans had an opportunity to distance themselves from those who seek to control every facet of your life. McCain could have won the election in one fell swoop if he stood up for the American people and listened to their cry for this bailout to fail. He caved into the hysteria and now is one of them. We are finished as a democracy and will soon be the world's largest Banana Republic.

The Government We Deserve

Eight to one against this horrific bailout and they are going to ram it down our throat. Guess what folks they will be back in a few months for another 700 billion. Lairs, crooks, and scumbags all.
