Several videos telling the truth, including those showing the Dem/S sticking their heads in the sand while Republicans were trying to regulate Fannie and Freddie, have been pulled for "copyright infringement". So you can't see Obama's economic adviser and former Fannie or Freddie (I can never remember which) CEO Raines lies through his teeth about the frauds perpetrated in order to get him million(s) in bonus(s).
Lady Lynn "Please, call me Lynn" Forester de Rothschild Endorses John McCain
Title says it all. Lady Lynn has been on all the news shows because and solely because she's left her Dem/S roots to support John McCain for the Presidency. The Dem/S don't like it and here their CNN stand-in tries to give Lynn what-for and gets it herself.
Biden Says Paying MORE Taxes is Patriotic
Really, I say that cutting expenditures is patriotic, that defending the nation is patriotic, that allowing the country to produce its own energy is patriotic. These are things the Dem/S oppose. Based on their own policies, I say the Dem/S are unpatriotic. Joe Biden, go lecture somebody else.
Ann Coulter, the Dem/S and... Satan?Ann Coulter has a piece you need to read. Makes the case, unintentionally perhaps, that I've made that perhaps Barack Hussein Obama is the anti-Christ (although not the traditional view, just ANTI Christ).
All Barack Company, ABC "News" "Reporter/Journalist" Gibson Edits Palin's Interview
You have got to see this. Charlie Gibson and ABC show their prejudice and ability to lie in their editing of the interview with Governor Sarah Palin. And they wonder why I don't watch ABC news...
This Race is About Race
At least according to Joe Biden. Slip on over to Barking Moonbat to get the quotes, I'm too lazy to edit them into my post, and see for yourself. Of course they've been saying this for a while. As when Barack Hussein Obama says he doesn't look like the other presidents on the money (and he ain't POTUS yet). Funny that BHO isn't really black even...
Still, if you tell me to vote for you because you're a certain skin color or race or religion or whatever, that makes you (as well as your supporters) the bigots you say you aren't. BHO doesn't get that, a lot of Dem/S either don't get it or don't care, but I get it. Then again, those are "just words, just speaches", right Senator Barack Hussein Obama?
Obama Campaign Ridicules McCain/Palin on Disability and Religion"Jesus was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate was a governor." This attempt to equate Governor Sarah Palin with the killer of Jesus Christ is diengenuous. Jesus was not a community organizer. He was a carpenter, the son of God, and a teacher (Rabbi). He was an effective teacher as can be judged by his continued impact, the acceptance of his teachings some 2000 years later. Pontius Pilate served a dictatorial government occupying conquered countries. Governor Palin was properly elected and has stated that she "serves" the people. This statement demonstrates the Dem/S attitude towards religion and willingness to compromise truth in the reach for power. That's power over you and me folks.
Then the Obama campaign (that's Barack Hussein Obama, he approves each message) has attacked Senator McCain for not being able to use a computer including e-mail and thus being "old" fashioned. IOW, they are attacking McCain for being the age he is, for being injured in his time as a POW and unable (at least it is extremely uncomfortable) to use a computer. I've heard today and verified that the damage McCain suffered during torture has limited his fine motor skills as well as the range of motion in his arms thus making computer use extremely problematic. Ageist and discriminatory against those with disabilities.
So now the Dem/S, in apparent desperation after having unsuccessfully run their Presidential candidate against the Republican Vice Presidential candidate, have been reduced to ridiculing older Americans, disabled Americans, disabled veterans, and properly elected officials. For those of you who read this and think that perhaps this is ok and that the Dem/S have a point I have to ask you this, "Just what is it that makes you better than the 'evil' Republicans?" Frankly, I don't see it and every time your party says/does this sort of thing I think less and less of them.
I'm nearly catatonic as I'm near to having a cataclysmic catastrophe. You see my mother, of whom I've previously written, has seven (7) cats. Bert, Leonard, Marco Polo, Fünft, Sheila, McCavity, and Bea are all pretty good as cats go but cats are a hard sell, even if you're giving them away. 3 years ago, when Mom was still "here" she asked me to promise that her cats wouldn't be put down if something happened to her. Something will be happening to her and these seven cats show no signs of using up their nine lives.
Now, I can't take them into MY home. You see my one daughter is allergic, very allergic, and couldn't visit us at all if we took the cats in. Frankly, I don't WANT seven cats. I'd like to give them to loving homes but, so far, no loving homes want them. Heck, this was THE loving home that was their one shelter.
Bert was a kitten when Mom got him. He was a descendant of at least two generations of "barn" cats but had been abandoned by his mother (or she had died somewhere). The farmer found him and talked Mom into taking him in and Mom talked Dad into letting him in the house. Bert is about 13. He's still spry but is the oldest of the seven.
Leonard was in the Harrisonburg shelter. He'd apparently been living wild for his first two years but was very much a human loving cat. So much so the shelter took him to events. Still he'd been unadopted and then Gussie, Mom's #2 (also rescued but now among the dearly departed) took a "leave of absence" out the back door. Before she returned Mom had Leonard home to "replace" her. Of course he stayed after her return. Leonard is one of the two most "affectionate" cats of the seven.
Marco Polo (Marco for short) showed up one day looking for a handout. Although he was nominally the neighbor's cat (she had 60-120 at the time) he followed the handouts into the house where he's stayed since. Marco is the other most "affectionate" cat.
Fünft came next. She's so named because at the time she was the fifth cat of the group. Like Gussie who was still living at the time, she was dropped off in the middle of the night by an unthinking coward. At least she didn't have to put up with the cold rain into which Gussie had been thrown. Unlike Gussie her right eye had been injured in the "drop" and she soon lost sight in that eye and also is losing sight in her left eye. That doesn't stop her and she is easily the most inquisitive of the cats and most likely to be able to open doors, to cabinets or closets, and go where she ought not.
Sheila is Marco's sister. We didn't know it at the time but when she also came looking for handouts she also followed them right into the house where she now seems perfectly satisfied.
McCavity is a Maine Coon Cat. He was also a rescue from the Harrisonburg animal shelter, indirectly. Mom got him from his rescuer when he didn't fit in in her home. It takes a bit for him to warm up to you but he's willing to take his turn and now comes to greet me when I arrive for my daily visit. He's also the most confident or least nervous cat and will often just keep on napping despite my cleaning, stepping over and about him, etc.
Bea was the last cat to make her home here. Another of our cat hoarding neighbors mass of cats, she apparently escaped, half-starving when that lady was finally bundled away to safety in a place where she could be watched and her children caught up her cats for... Anyway Bea (as we call her) came up to Mom's with another similarly colored female, also starving. Mom managed to catch them on successive days and we don't know whether Bea was first or second caught. Mom immediately took both to the vet but only Bea survived. Nearly nothing but skin and bones and wary of everyone and everything she's now pretty fat and healthy. She'll even roll over on her back for a belly rub!
All, other than Bert, are about 7-9 years old (as best we can tell). All were spayed/neutered as they were brought into the "family". To my knowledge, none have chronic or life-threatening diseases. It isn't quite time for new homes but it won't be long.
First, Barack Hussein Obama has been absolutely for disarming Americans. He ran on that in 2004 and until the Heller decision his stand was that the 2nd Amendment was not a guarantee of an individual right to keep and bear arms. Any gun owner who believes differently is a fool. If you believe that Rowe vs. Wade can be overturned by the actions of a President you have to believe that Heller can face the same fate. I don't believe that McCain will hurt us in that regard but that Obama would destroy us if he can, any way he can.
On the other point, claiming to work for veterans well that is iffy for either one. Obama was persuaded to vote for the latest version of the GI Bill as #1 a bribe to veterans and #2 a continuation of his welfare state. McCain has thought that it was so generous that veterans would leave in droves in time of war. I'm a veteran, I didn't leave service but stayed as a career. As a result I lost my Vietnam Era GI Bill benefits because they expired! So, even though I gave 27½ years service I got very few education benefits compared to many others. So, to say that McCain is different from Obama (and his running mate) on this subject galls me because Joe Biden did nothing for veterans.
On the other hand, and I've said this before, I don't think that merely being a flyboy, officer, POW entitles anyone to the veteran vote. John McCain has often struck me as among the worst example of the pompus, know-it-all, officer elitist snobs out there. Still, he doesn't beat John Kerry in this regard (Senator Kerry who uses his Vietnam service to both claim special priviledge and to deride the military) and he is right on the war against the islamofacists. That's really important. I can take a little officer snobbishness if that is what it takes to destroy people who would destroy my family.
You're an 18 or 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, 11-14-1965. LZ X-ray, Vietnam. Your Infantry Unit is outnumbered 8-1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.
You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then, over the staccato of the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see a Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because there are no Medi-Vac markings are on it.
Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not a Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.
He's coming anyway.
And he drops it in, and sits there in the middle of the machinegun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses. And, he kept coming back...... 13 more times..... and took about 30 of you and your buddies out; soldiers who would never have gotten out.
Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise, ID......May God rest his soul... He's finally flown home.
Governor Sarah Palin
Dem/S are running scared, so scared they've gone over the top in attacking Governor Palin via blogs, national publications and major networks. The attacks are sexist in the extreme. She is attacked for being a mom and not staying at home (HELLO, Gloria Steinem, where are you?), she is attacked because her daughter made a bad choice and became pregnant, indeed she's been attacked on a number of things all of which contradict the Dem/S stated beliefs/policy stands in favor of feminism. Hypocrites is what they are. We knew it and now the moderates will have this hypocrisy shoved in their faces.
What the Dem/S are saying is "Unless you, as a woman, are in lockstep with socialism you should stay at home, raise your 2 children (no more!), as a poor, single mother and make no attempt to improve your community." In fact, that Governor Palin has worked for many years and consistently improved her community from the bottom up (which is why she was elected Governor of Alaska) is the real reason they fear her. They know she has more experience of any kind than the Messiah, Barrack Hussein Obama. They know she has more executive experience than Obama, Biden or McCain. She's also from, dare I repeat it, Alaska.
How does her being from Alaska threaten the Dem/S? Well, she's not of the great urban centers. She's not one of them, she's one of the rest of the country. She's a resident of "flyover" country. She's from small town USA (said to be a bad thing). She hunts, she didn't use her husband to get to where she is meaning she's independent. Nobody should be independent. We see that in how the Dem/S turned on one of the party stalwarts (and their former VP candidate) just because he was independent enough to support the war in Iraq against radical Islamists.
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.
