  A Family Love Story
Mystery solved: Woman on WWII vet's gun ID'd

You have got to love it when the police return your property and it is this valuable.  Don't you wish all departments tried this hard?

  NRA Life Member to be Republican VP Nominee
She is also the governor of Alaska, wife, mother, hunter and obviously a go-getter.  The thing is that she is a real member of the NRA, not a punch-my-ticket-pay-for-membership-with-campaign-contributions member.  I may even put up a yard sign for the McCain-Palin ticket.  One thing for certain, if you aren't voting for McCain-Palin you are voting for socialism and antigunners of the first order. McCain could hardly have made a better choice.

  An Historic Day, But, Oh What a Disappointment
45 years ago today, the Reverend Martin Luther King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. A wonder of language and vision for the future it defined the civil rights movement for many white people. What a disappointment to me that it apparently did not do so for the many for whom Reverend King struggled.

You see, tonight, U.S. Senator Barack Hussein Obama will accept the nomination of his party for the office of President of the United States. How unfortunate that this man was chosen. He who can himself point to the many opportunities he has fully exploited but derides the nation as holding people down. He who's wife has called this country "mean". He who has exploited his racial minority appearance. He who's policies (in as much as he's gone on record by voting or speaking) are opposed to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He who will not care for the least of his actual brethren. He who has called friend and used the influence of a man (William Ayers) who has unrepentantly used the most violent of means to oppose this country. He who has run on change but has used old school politics to destroy his opponents.

This man who is a socialist/communist, raised by socialists/communists, friend of socialists/communists and radicals has been selected by one of the two major political parties as nominee/candidate for the office of President of the United States of America. How disappointing.

We could have had any number of hard working, USofA loving, men of character and integrity who were coincidentally men (or women!) of color. In not having such a person, in having a hater of America, in having a non-patriot, inexperienced in all but cut-throat politics, a product of the Daley Chicago political machine, who has lied even about his racial make-up in an attempt to exploit his "blackness", we have the antithesis of Martin Luther King's dream, of our dream. What a disappointment.

Tonight, he is attempting to further exploit his "rock star" quality in his acceptance speech. His performance will be opened by, not other speakers, but other rock stars. He will not be confined to a convention hall but in an open air venue on a stage arranged to look like a Greek amphitheater. It is as though the messiah, the god, had stepped down from Mount Olympus to call his flock to him. Speaker of the House, Representative (Democrat) Pelosi has called him a "gift of God". I rather think that anybody who dares think themselves such is anything but that.

Yet I hear, again and again, people, that is to say black people, will be voting for him because Barack Hussein Obama is "black" and for no other reason. What a disappointment.

  The Democrat (Vice) Presidential Nominee
The news is literally awash with reports about the DNC presumptive nominee's selection of Senator Joe Biden (D - Deleware) as his VP running mate. I find it interesting that Obama says Biden is ready to be president now. I suppose the only difference between Biden and Mrs. Clinton (also ready to be president now) is that he won't have to have a food taster with Biden as the VP (well, maybe not).

I've been watching Biden a number of years now. He's arrogant as all get out, more out of touch with "common folks" than anyone but Teddy Kennedy or John Kerry. He's never met a tax he didn't like. While he has experience credentials that Obama can't possibly have they are rife with error. He's called McCain a fine fellow and said that Obama wasn't ready to be president. (I have to ask, why would Obama pick a man as his VP who's more ready than he is to be president?) I suppose that the Dem/S are so happy because now they have a presidential candidate and one that isn't a Clinton...

  Saddleback Church and the Candidates - A Thought
Rick Warren, author of "A Purpose Driven Life", hosted both presumptive nominees at Saddleback Church (in California) and asked them some tough questions. Actually the questions weren't all that tough except for Barack Hussein Obama. Tygrrr Express is just one blog that lays out the differences. To sum it up BHO went first and had to equivocate on every question because he's lying and McCain spoke forthrightly and to the point because he didn't lie.

A lot of folks don't think that BHO is "evil". Maybe not, I suppose that God will decide, but I think he's at the least an agent of evil. He might not even know it. That's about as charitable as I can be about it. You see, what he wants us to do is abandon our founding principles.

McCain is sometimes wrong but he doesn't squirm when asked what he thinks. He tells you.

Tuesday, May 27, 2008 Obama's Not Exactlys
Obama's Not Exactlys:
1.) Selma March Got Me Born - NOT EXACTLY, your parents felt safe enough to have you in 1961 - Selma had no effect on your birth, as Selma was in 1965. (Google'Obama Selma ' for his full March 4, 2007 speech and articles about its various untruths.)
2.) Father Was A Goat Herder - NOT EXACTLY, he was a privileged, well educated youth, who went on to work with the Kenyan Government.
3.) Father Was A Proud Freedom Fighter - NOT EXACTLY, he was part of one of the most corrupt and violent governments Kenya has ever had.
4.) My Family Has Strong Ties To African Freedom - NOT EXACTLY, your cousin Raila Odinga has created mass violence in attempting to overturn a legitimate election in 2007, in Kenya . It is the first widespread violence in decades. The current government is pro-American but Odinga wants to overthrow it and establish Muslim Sharia law. Your half-brother, Abongo Oba ma, is Odinga's follower. You interrupted your New Hampshire campaigning to speak to Odinga on the phone. Check out the following link for verification of that....and for more.
Obama's cousin Odinga in Kenya ran for president and tried to get Sharia muslim law in place there. When Odinga lost the elections, his followers have burned Christians' homes and then burned men, women and children alive in a Christian church where they took shelter.. Obama SUPPORTED his cousin before the election process here started. Google Obama and Odinga and see what you get. No one wants to know the truth.
5.) My Grandmother Has Always Been A Christian - NOT EXACTLY, she does her daily Salat prayers at 5am according to her own interviews. Not to mention, Christianity wouldn't allow her to have been one of 14 wives to 1 man.
6.) My Name is African Swahili - NOT EXACTLY, your name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama.
Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. If elected, he would be the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side. While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya , his father's family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate even states he's Arab, not African Negro). From....and for more....go to.....

7.) I Never Practiced Islam - NOT EXACTLY, you practiced it daily at school, where you were registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until your wife made you change, so you could run for office.
4-3-08 Article 'Obama was 'quite religious in islam'' http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=60559
8.) My School In Indonesia Was Christian - NOT EXACTLY, you were registered as Muslim there and got in trouble in Koranic Studies for making faces (check your own book).
February 28, 2008. Kristoff from the New York Times a year ago: Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated (it'll give Alabama voters heart attacks), Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as 'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.' This is just one example of what Pamela is talking about when she says 'Obama's narrative is being altered, enhanced and manipulated to whitewash troubling facts.'
9.) I Was Fluent In Indonesian - NOT EXACTLY, not one teacher says you could speak the language.
10.) Because I Lived In Indonesia , I Have More Foreign Experience - NOT EXACTLY, you were there from the ages of 6 to 10, and couldn't even speak the language. What did you learn except how to study the Koran and watch cartoons.

14.) A Life Magazine Article Changed My Outlook On Life - NOT EXACTLY, Life has yet to find the article you mention in your book. It doesn't, and never did, exist.
15.) I Won't Run On A National Ticket In '08 - NOT EXACTLY, here you are, despite saying, live on TV, that you would not have enough experience by then, and you are all about having experience first.
16.) Voting 'Present' is Common In Illinois Senate - NOT EXACTLY, they are common for YOU, but not many others have 130 NO VOTES.

21.) The Ethics Bill Was Hard To Pass - NOT EXACTLY, it took just 14 days from start to finish.
22.) I Wrote A Tough Nuclear Bill - NOT EXACTLY, your bill was rejected by your own party for its pandering and lack of all regulation - mainly because of your Nuclear donor, Exelon, from which David Axelrod came.

28.) No One on my campaign contacted Canada about NAFTA - NOT EXACTLY, the Canadian Government issued the names and a memo of the conversation your campaign had with them.
29.) I Am Tough On Terrorism - NOT EXACTLY, you missed the Iran Resolution vote on terrorism and your good friend Ali Abunimah supports the destruction off Israel
30.) I Want All Votes To Count - NOT EXACTLY, you said let the delegates decide.
31.) I Want Americans To Decide - NOT EXACTLY, you prefer caucuses that limit the vote, confuse the voters, force a public vote, and only operate during small windows of time.

  Military Humor
Tom Phillips has collected some images illustrating military humor. Have a look.

  Bernie Mac
Our condolences to Bernie Mac's family and friends. His humor was sometimes irritating, sometimes right on and he was not somebody I'd turn the channel to see but he was only 50. I was immediately reminded of my good friend Mike Mays who passed at age 52 in similar circumstances. That is just too young for anyone to die for such a reason.


  CULTURE OF CORRUPTION - John Edwards Apparently Fathered Child with Mistress
Yep, the holier-than-thou, self-righteous, populist ambulance chaser, former Senator and Presidential candidate John Edwards was having an affair while his wife was battling cancer and while he was exploiting her circumstance for his own gain. Now, in a move to protect him, the child's mother is apparently going to block any attempt at a DNA test to prove or disprove the child's actual father's identity. Convenient. Based on past, possibly illegal payments, by the Edwards campaign to this woman, I have to wonder just how much she got to be an intensely private person.


  Nazis In Charge in Prince George's County
On August 7, 1944, my first cousin PFC Gano H. "Sonny" Jewell was killed in fighting with the Nazis of Germany. On August 7, 2004 SGT Craig W. Cherry and Sgt. Bobby E. Beasley were killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. All were fighting to protect our freedoms and liberties. On August 7, 2008 I read that the Prince George's County Police feel it is just SOP to behave like Nazis even to the point of assaulting a Mayor and killing his animals. This over a box of marijuana one of the PGC officers himself delivered. Read and weep friends.

For us, the American ideal is personified in the concept of self-reliance, work ethic, honesty/forthrightness, decency, personal property rights, family, religion, an ability to defend oneself from criminals and crooked politicians, and personal responsibility.
