Obama, is in a similar position. He has to prove liberal financial policies will work. He, like FDR is popular, but today, Americans are much more broadly informed with many more sources of information than citizens had back then. I, unfortunately, predict that Obama’s policies won’t work and the sacrifice will be just as great as it was during the Depression, but because Obama is not subject to any realistic criticism, even if his policies are failures, any proposal he makes, like FDR, will be reported as a success by the sycophant mainstream media.
But, Americans will see the futility of the leftist Democrat solutions, and realize that increasing spending, raising taxes, and forcing bankruptcy on liberal states and cities will be his result. That will turn Americans back to the conservative brand. It will also take a huge collapse in America, to teach Americans liberals their policies will be inevitable failures. That will be extremely difficult, but America will turn back to Republicans to solve the disaster that Obama will not solve. The question will be, will Republicans stand by the Reagan principles or once again abandon them as tax and spenders repeating the last cycle. Reagan principles are the the solution to today's economic crisis, like them or not. It's the only way.

I think if I were a native New Yorker, I'd start asking questions about the people who represent them. Have those asking to represent the state paid their dues in doing the things New Yorkers want. Again, apparently that doesn't matter....but then New York politics never made much sense to me to begin with. They're about to go bankrupt and they're raising taxes on themselves. Ya gotta love New York!
That's my suggestion. Appoint a Republican. Eliminate the sludge of the corrupt cesspool of Illinois/Chicago politics.
From Smoking Gun we have a group of mug shots of people who obviously are supporters of Barak Obama. I guess they did a little too much partying after the victory and wound up in front of the booking officer’s camera. I’m sure they’re all upstanding citizens who worked hard for the election of their candidate.
Thank you Smoking Gun.

Bill Clinton was under investigation by one of the U.S. Attorneys in Arkansas when he was inaugurated and still fired them. The Senate was under the control of the Democrats at the time so senators weren’t going to complain.
So don’t look for any connection to be discovered connecting the “office of the President Elect” (yuk, yuk) and selling his senate seat. Just one more hypocrisy from the socialistic office of Obama.

If it can be confirmed it is truly amazing.

Questionable contributions, questionable American citizenship, questionable voting practices and strong arm tactics at polling places by “black” Panthers are just the tip of the iceberg. The same attitudes that pervade Blagojevich’s blatant attempt to get money in exchange for a senatorial appointment and, state assistance for the Tribune company are just more of the same Illinois political corruption.
How can we possibly trust Obama who’s political life was born in this cesspool of excesses. He has trumpeted change. And he has given us change. Nearly all of the promises he’s made during the election he has now changed. There isn’t a new face in his whole list of appointments. Old politics as usual. Old corruption as usual. Old failed FDR socialism as usual.
The FDR-style of economic solutions were failures during the depression, yet Obama is heading in the same direction. His solutions, too, will fail and at the expense of Americans. Only this time, the pervasive corruption spawned in Illinois is now in the White House. How pathetic. How scary.

With Obama becoming the president, does it mean that we should now refer to Michelle Obama as the “First Bitch” to be sure that we comply with the demands that “White,” “Brown,” “Red,” and “Yellow” Americans recognize and promote the culture of the Black community as defined by the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and most of the black rappers and community organizers which are now defined as a racial group?
I’m just trying to do what has been demanded of me by the black community and understand the new change of tone and direction in America. Please let me know the appropriate reference to Michelle. We have at least 4 years to get this right so I’d like to start out on the right foot.

I have next door neighbors who are big Obama supporters and activists in the Democrat party. They’re old hippies from the 60 and 70s who go to “Burning Man” and whose main goal in life was to vote for a black man for president. During the 15 years we’ve lived beside them, he has been laid off probably five times during the best of economic years of Clinton and Bush . I understand why they support government intervention. They are unable to exist without government help. It is the nature of liberals to want government bailout not only on a national level but on a personal level. In other words, they must be supported by others to survive. Unfortunately, they want everybody else to have to rely on government to survive.
I’d like to confront the women whose statements on YouTube about Obama paying for her mortgage and gas bills a year from now, ask her if Obama has been paying her bills. If not, I'd like to here her explanation of why Obama is reneging on the promise she believed he made to her. I can guarantee she will either deny saying what she said, or say that because Bush made such a mess of the economy Obama wasn’t able to keep his promise. The excuses will be legion.
For the next four years, at least, the news media will form the fundamental foundation for all excuses and become the Obombers explaining his inevitable failures. The American people will have to decide if we are national socialists with government ownership of the economy or if we are free citizens with a democratic republic.

I disagree. The Obama voters saw only one thing, COLOR and they wanted to be seen voting for a black man with no experience thus assuaging their guilt. These Obama supporters who have ignored his blatant attacks on the constitution in his rhetoric, will not so much as squeak when he socializes America. They will applaud. They will be taxed no matter what their income. They will make excuses and justifications. They will stand it awe at how audaciously he crushes his opposition (which has already started) and these blind voters will secretly hope that they don’t become targets. They will say nothing. They will do nothing. But they will be extremely uncomfortable in secret.
I believe Obama is probably the most surprised person in America that he won. He didn’t realize it would be so easy to steal the Democrat nomination from Hillary. I’m convinced that Obama expected Hillary to win. That he, during the interim, would solidify his experience and be at a good age to run at the end of her presidency.
Obama voters will, in effect, be his amen chorus in dismantling American freedom and power in the world. Nothing will be too obnoxious. Nothing will be too socialistic. Nothing will be too far leftist. Nothing will be too anti-American as long as Obama is doing it.
He has said what he is going to do. The only difference is that it will be done more sub-rosa, under the table and behind your back than ever expected. The far leftists who continue to support him will complain not that he is attempting to decimate his “enemies” but that the decimation is not the lead story on the nightly news.
Freedom of Speech will be the first to be attacked..
Gun rights will be close behind to take the next hit.
Personal attacks on doubters will be rampant.
Obama turncoat critics will be smashed viciously.
The “loyal opposition” will be cynically attacked as unpatriotic.
Tolerance for those who disagree will not be tolerated.
Racism will be aimed at any critic just as in the election.
Taxes, Taxes and more Taxes will be front and center.
So the noise is false. There will be no critiques of Obama from voters who elected him because they have been first hand observers of his brutal nature and as the Germans did with Adolph Hitler, will be silent.
Some believe that the economic crisis will keep reigns on him and not allow him to take the socialistic measures he prefers to implement. I believe the opposite. I believe he will use the crisis as the excuse to impose some of the most stringent leftist policies ever attempted in America just as FDR did.

Blind to his proposal for a National police force...Constitutionally antithetical the concept of America
Blind that he plans to eliminate Bush Tax Cuts.....increasing taxes on everybody.
Blind to his illegally raised money from foreign sources.
Blind to him illegally registering voters with the help of his ACORN thugs.
Blind to his proposed confiscation of our 401-K retirement accounts and put them into Social Security.
Blind to his elimination of future military defense systems including anti-missile missiles.
Blind to his spending of 1-trillion in government programs with no way to pay for them. Do I hear Inflation?
None of this mattered. Voters refused to listen. All they could see was his color. And there was one other element. He decimated Hillary simply because he was twice as dishonest and twice as ruthless as the Clintons. And that’s saying something.

In the past few days, Barak Obama has inadvertently began to reveal a side of himself, that has been well hidden until now. He is showing himself to be very dictatorial, assumptive, and has begun to count his eggs before their hatched. American's really don't like that.
It's interesting how assuming you've won puts people off. Especially those who have been on the fence, watching a man act in an amazingly Mercurial way, kicking reporters off his plane because their newspapers endorsed McCain, planning his staff before the vote, calling people selfish who don't want higher taxes and a slew of other assumptions.
Americans are getting scared of Obama's sense of entitlement. It makes a dictator of a man as egotistical and inexperienced as he.
THE BIG PURGE: SKEPTICAL REPORTERS TOSSED OFF OBAMA PLANE BECAUSE THEIR PAPERS ENDORCED McCAIN.
AMERICA HAS FREEDOM OF THE PRESS EXCEPT IN AN AMERICA RULED BY OBAMA. We have just seen the first huge step to stifle freedom of the press. Next are the talk radio hosts and anyone who happens to disagree with Obama. Newspapers and talk show hosts...who's next?
HOW ARE YOU PEOPLE SO BLIND WHO SUPPORT OBAMA? HE IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HITLER and HUSSEIN DID IN GERMANY AND IRAQ. DESTROY THE OPPOSITION VOICES, JUST LIKE MUGABE, MUSSOLINI, AHMEDINEJAD, STALIN, AND MAO.
GOD HELP US IF HE IS ELECTED.

Barak Obama has censored an Orlando television station for asking questions the current mainstream media have refused to ask, even though they are valid probing questions that should be answered given his stands on forced wealth transfer.
Will other media come to the defense of a colleague who is being censored, even if they are in the tank for Obama. Don't count on it. You are only allowed to censor conservative voices, or voices asking the honest questions Obama should answer.
From Orlando Times.com:
"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.
McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was "a result of her husband's experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West."
Here's a link to the interview: http://www.wftv.com/video/17790025/index.html.

Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed.
Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.
When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight.
I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I 've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful.
At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient needed the money more.
I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application
Thanks to RC

Obama has one serious problem, the guy who he wants to run his economic plans Karl Marks is dead. Try Krugman...he even won the noble prize for economics. He is perpetually wrong, but that fits right in with Obama's other failures. That's right, Obama, SHARE THE WEALTH, Karl would have loved that idea.
An Iranian governmental official yesterday has said they should plan to attack Israel. If that’s done with Obama as President, what is he going to do, ignore it? Boy that’s a scary thought. It would be an Obama instigated Holocaust. Or what if China attacks Taiwan? Or Russia attacks Uzbekistan? Is he going to “sit down" and talk them out of it and say “play nice boys.” What a lightweight. He has never had to make an important decision in his life, with the exception of his running mate and he chose Biden, and what a mistake that was.
Biden has had an aneurysm which could kill him an any moment as it just about did Ted Kennedy. But Biden is right about one thing, our enemies view Obama as an inexperienced lightweight whom they will test and I predict that Obama will come up short and have to respond by re-instituting the draft within 15 months of his inauguration.
Obama had a difficult time with the "vision thing."
He said the surge would fail. It succeeded.
He said having ACORN push sub-prime loans would succeed. It failed and destroyed our economy.

Sen. John Kerry joked about Sen. John McCain's age on Monday, saying his 72-year-old colleague wears adult diapers. Pasted from <http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/kerry_mccain_diapers/2008/10/20/142387.html>
Does that mean that Sen. Kerry is made of the stuff for which the diapers are worn? Sounds right to me.

It assumes that its inherent humanistic tendencies are morally superior to any other value system.
It assumes it is more compassionate and by definition its resultant solutions inherently better for humanity but uses no standard measurement by which to compare.
It assumes it has the inherent right, nay the responsibility, to make decisions for others because they are not capable of making decisions for themselves.
It assumes a holier than thou persona based solely on its own internal emotional self-righteousness.
It assumes that all its judgments based solely on its own internal evaluations and not on empirical data are, just by the origin of their formation, indisputable.
It assumes that once it makes an evaluation there is no argument, thought, discussion or opinion worthy of further evaluation.
It assumes any and all solutions it creates always solve the problem in question but abhors and rejects subsequent changes to its solutions, even in the face of glaring failures.
It assumes that it is never wrong and any other mind is never right.
It assumes, for no valid reason, that it has the right to be the single judge of the quality of its own intellect and that all other intellects are inferior because they are not liberal.
It assumes its thoughts descend from a higher plain.
And finally, it assumes that there is no higher source of intellectual thought than the liberal mind, even though that conclusion is antithetical to simple logic.
In short it is, again by definition, the most closed mind in existence because it engages with the temerity of undeniability that it assumes itself to be the ultimate source of rational human thought…or that it is, by its own ultimate arrogance, the God of this earth.

What Obama supporters don't realize is that what he is doing can and will be done by others because he has created the template to game the voting system of America. Votes in America are for sale for a pack of cigarettes and an Itune. Yes, American will collapse from within because of the tactics of Obama and his supports.
Our constitution is hanging by a thread.

There is only one positive I see in the possible election of Obama in this time of financial crisis....he won't be able to do 25% of what he thinks he can do. The biggest negative, two Supreme court judges will be appointed in the next 4 years and if he has a veto proof congress, you can guarantee that he will pick two appointments to the left of Ruth Bader Ginsburg...the worst judge to have been approved in the last 75 years.
Have you noticed the growing communistic nature of the Obama campaign solutions? ACORN is destroying the validity of our voting system. Obama wants to be Robin Hood stealing from the rich to give to the poor…which is simply a euphemism for Communism. He wants to ignore the honest people in this country who have worked hard and paid their mortgages on time, and take money from them to give to the people who dishonestly bought houses they knew they could not afford…and now demand that their mortgages be paid by other taxpayers.
OBAMA IS A COMMUNIST CLEAR AND SIMPLE. The question is do you want a communist for president of the United States of America?

Subject: FW: An Inconvenient Truth
Here is a quick look into 3 former Fannie Mae executives who have brought down Wall Street.
Franklin Raines was a Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Fannie Mae. Raines was forced to retire from his position with Fannie Mae when auditing discovered severe irregularities in Fannie Mae's accounting activities. At the time of his departure The Wall Street Journal noted, " Raines, who long defended the company's accounting despite mounting evidence that it wasn't proper, issued a statement late Tuesday c conceding that "mistakes were made" and saying he would assume responsibility as he had earlier promised. News reports indicate the company was under growing pressure from regulators to shake up its management in the wake of findings that the company's books ran afoul of generally accepted accounting principles for four years." Fannie Mae had to reduce its surplus by $9 billion.
Raines left with a "golden parachute valued at $240 Million in benefits. The Government filed suit against Raines when the depth of the accounting scandal became clear. http://housingdoom.com/2006/12/18/fannie-charges/ . The Government noted, "The 101 charges reveal how the individuals improperly manipulated earnings to maximize their bonuses, while knowingly neglecting accounting systems and internal controls, misapplying over twenty accounting principles and misleading the regulator and the public. The Notice explains how they submitted six years of misleading and inaccurate accounting g statements and inaccurate capital reports that enabled them to grow Fannie Mae in an unsafe and unsound manner." These charges were made in 2006. The Court ordered Raines to return $50 Million Dollars he received in bonuses based on the miss-stated Fannie Mae profits.
Tim Howard - Was the Chief Financial Officer of Fannie Mae. Howard "was a strong internal proponent of using accounting strategies that would ensure a "stable pattern of earnings" at Fannie. In everyday English - he was cooking the books. The Government Investigation determined that, "Chief Financial Officer, Tim Howard, failed to provide adequate oversight to key control and reporting functions within Fannie Mae,"
On June 16, 2006, Rep. Richard Baker, R-La., asked the Justice Department to investigate his allegations that two former Fannie Mae executives lied to Congress in October 2004 when they denied manipulating the mortgage-finance giant's income statement to achieve management pay bonuses. Investigations by federal regulators and the company's board of directors since concluded that management did manipulate late 1998 earnings to trigger bonuses. Raines and Howard resigned under pressure in late 2004.
Howard's Golden Parachute was estimated at $20 Million!
Jim Johnson - A former executive at Lehman Brothers and who was later forced from his position as Fannie Mae CEO. A look at the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight's May 2006 report on mismanagement and corruption inside Fannie Mae, and you'll see some interesting things about Johnson. Investigators found that Fannie Mae had hidden a substantial amount of Johnson's 1998 compensation from the public, reporting that it was between $6 million and $7 million when it fact it was $21 million." Johnson is currently under investigation for taking illegal loans from Countrywide while serving as CEO of Fannie Mae.
Johnson's Golden Parachute was estimated at $28 Million.
FRANKLIN RAINES? Raines works for the Obama Campaign as Chief Economic Adviser
TIM HOWARD? Howard is also a Chief Economic Adviser to Obama
JIM JOHNSON? Johnson hired as a Senior Obama Finance Adviser and was selected to run Obama's Vice Presidential Search Committee
IF OBAMA PLANS ON CLEANING UP THE MESS - HIS ADVISERS HAVE THE EXPERTISE - THEY MADE THE MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE. Would you trust the men who tore Wall Street down to build the New Wall Street ?

The media will stoke the flames of suppression by the government. Americans will begin to react to the suppression which leads to more media headlines requiring more suppression and an explosive revolt is assured. The bigger the revolt the more the Media and an Obama administration will justify tyrannical control demands.
The fact is that there is the same angry rhetoric from the left against those on the right. The socialist/communist blogs such as the George Soros funded Moveon.org and Daily Kos along with the Huffington Post are full of hate and vitriol from the left. Of course, the mainstream media makes no mention of the hate-filled left attacks. The McCain supporters are responding to something that has been going on, on the leftist blogs for 8 years and they are screaming "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it any more."
So the stage is set for a revolt and a revolution. Will America survive?
I'm not so sure it will because there is a new player in this game…it's fear and fear changes the equation exponentially and thus defies prediction. Add potential terrorist attacks…and an Obama dictatorship is almost assured.

Obama supports ACORN who has been cheating in registering voters for years....and has registered one person 12 times according to newspaper reports.
Obama has announced he will spend more than 1-trillion dollars on new government spending if elected.
And you expect him to make good judgments in resolving the economic crisis that these people who support him created. Raines, Ayers, Franklin, Jackson, and I-hate-America Michelle. It’s a good laugh...hold onto your wallet, freedom and peace....Obama will destroy them all.

I'm going to answer your comment specifically because I'm still working on an extended evaluation piece to post regarding liberalism and conservatism. You wonder how McCain proposes to lower taxes. I hate to state the obvious but the very simple answer is to start severely cutting earmarked and other unnecessary spending. Why is that not an option? This whole problem is the function of government attempting to solve an issue by dictate, without using capitalistic values, when it is antithetical to common sense.
Barney Frank, during the Carter presidency, forced the passage of a "bank loan" change that required banks to eliminate red lining. The Franks bill threatened banks with substantial fines if banks who did not loan to "questionable" borrowers which, I might point out, put the money of hard working depositors at risk....but Franks didn't care about them…only the "poor."
I know that was a laudable effort, but when you force banks or any private organization to act against centuries of sound judgment, you invite disaster. Then, to keep this brief, the banks were forced by Clinton to do even more in providing loans with the pressure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Clinton appointed Franklin Raines and Jim Jackson to head the quazi-government agencies. Raines and Jackson cooked their books to inflate the value of the Fannie and Freddie equity to meet goals so they could give themselves big bonuses for "meeting" the goals which they did only on paper. Raines got 90 million dollars in 6 years, with his bonuses.
The Raines-inflated loans values were then packaged and sold them to investment firms at those inflated values. Then when the borrowers who really couldn't afford the loans had to confront their first interest adjustments a couple of years ago, the foreclosures started. Then the second adjustment hit and the foreclosures ballooned. Suddenly houses valued at $500,000 were suddenly worth only $350,000 or less and that $150,000 simply evaporated leaving banks and investors holding the empty bags. The packaged mortgage investment became almost valueless. Homebuyers, who the Franks model, was supposed to help were forced into foreclosure.
I believe that attempting to force government solutions to solve poverty, when those solutions fly in the face of logical reality, as Franks demanded, is insanity. If you want to help the poor you don't sell them houses that you know that they will not be able to afford them when the interest rate goes up. Greedy mortgage brokers were allowed by F-Mae and F-Mac to loan up to 125% of the value of a house….that's crazy. In 2002, Bush tried to get legislation passed that would have protected against the "ARM" landmine that finally exploded. Then McCain did the same thing in 2005 and Democrats stopped both changes in the law to address just this very critical issue. "It would hurt the poor." they cried. Well, that's exactly what it has done by Democrats not allowing the correcting the problem it has hurt the poor worse than ever? It has hurt not only the poor but every American.
With this said, I'm opposed to the bailout. It's like not allowing a child not to suffer the consequences for their choices. No matter how many times you tell them…they don't listen and the only way to teach them is to have them make their decisions and suffer the consequences. The problem is that 60 to 70 per cent of Americans own stocks and they're watching their retirements shrink. And now, the very people who caused the debacle are being haled at the saviors…ala Barak Obama…who just happens to have Raines and Jackson as financial advisers…it's sick.
Regarding McCain. What are you proposing, that we continue raising taxes during a credit crunch? It simply isn't logical. Forcing taxpayers to pay for the greed of others is wrong. The UK Telegraph yesterday suggests that a stock market crash could cause a 33% loss in US stock value. Maybe we need to have that happen to learn our lessons. Forcing private industry to face the music like children should do. Maybe it will also force Democrats to realize that to help the poor, you don't put them on perpetual assistance. Provide jobs and demand that they take care of themselves. It is never a solution…with the exception of those who can't really help themselves. But that's not what this is about. Rich capitalists are the catalystists for job creation...punish them and you punish job creation....dumb, dumb, dumb!
Rest assured that there were many Republicans who were also greedy, and they're "earmarks" lost them the election in 2006. They paid for abandoning core fundamental conservative values. Did you know that the Democrats are trying to load up the bailout plan with additional earmark spending…more insanity.
The government solution should be to let the market handle this by backing a plan to help the banks through an insurance system….not bail them out. Let the market find it's level. If it deflates some values...is our punishment for our own greed and the botched effort to unwisely try bail out the poor in an impossible gush of bleeding heart liberal blood. There simply was not realism in any of this...and the same is true in 90 per cent of the programs for the poor...absolutely no accountability for what the politicians have passed. I'm not talking about the programs themselves...but the accountability of the politicians who passed them. They should be held to pay the price.
Lonely, just think of this. The bail out is estimated to be 700 billion dollars…which will explode to double that. Right now we send 700 billion dollar per year to foreign countries for oil when we have oil, coal natural gas, oil shale right here in America. There's enough to provide all our own oil and gas and keep our money at home for years to come while were discovering altenatives...not wind, solar etc which are lost causes, but because environmentalists have demonized carbon fuel, and Al Gore saying we need to eliminate carbon fuel in 10 years, which is an idea to stupid to discuss, we can't even work on clean coal and oil solutions. It's idiocy of the first order. As I perpetually say, THE ENERGY CRISIS IS NOT A CRISIS OF ENERGY IS A CRISES OF THE STORAGE OF ENERGY!!!!!!!!!!! Coal, oil and natural gas are simply systems to store energy...we need to find a way to store energy collected....we haven't found that system yet.
I detest Huckabee. I don't like anything about him. Although I am Christian, I consider him to be sleazy at best and very disingenuous and that's even too much praise for him from me. Considering the absolute critical nature of the economic crisis, Romney sure looks like a missed opportunity with his understanding of things financial. Unfortunately, my preferred candidate wasn't on either ballot. My December 3, 2007 and January 4, 2008 posts give you my opinion of Huckabee.
If Obama is elected he will raise capital gains taxes and corporate taxes…he can't help himself. He is a very liberal Democrat, like the scorpion, it is in his nature. At the very time we need to have capital in the private markets to allow for expansion of the economy, that's how jobs are created, Obama will yank it out to give to the least efficient system using money in existence - GOVERNEMENT! No government taxes have Never created an economic boom…except when they are cut. Kennedy did it, Reagan did it and Clinton, at the demand of a Republican congress reluctantly did it by force.
And by the way, I wouldn't trust NBC and Brian Williams with my dog's turd. NBC is by far the most liberal and in the tank for Obama news organization in the mainstream media and has become a blatant propagandist. They aren't even trying to be balanced any more. As a former journalist, I can't believe the bias in the media. True, old fashioned journalism is DEAD.
Finally, we are on a new planet. America has never faced this kind of economic problem before. Not even during the depression. Increased taxes are not the answer. Average Americans own more stock than ever and in higher percentages than ever. So the impact goes deep into the soul of the American psyche. But the only real medicine is to get out of this by rethinking our spending and rejection of accessing our own energy sources. We need new thinking….not the same old tired Democrat more government, higher taxes solutions to everything, as Obama is proposing. I'll grant you that McCain is not much better, but at least he has some life experience which the debate demonstrated Obama doesn't….especially when it comes to economic problems and worse on foreign affairs…which are a whole other issue.

Obama is doing what he always does...he's going to vote PRESENT and not make a decision. What is more important, face a critical issue that affects all Americans or being on Letterman and having a worthless debate, or going back and doing your job as a Senator?

Barak Obama seems to be terribly confused about who he's running against. He and his Clinton minions have attacked Sarah Palin as being a pig. They've gone after Rush Limbaugh for quoting Mexican immigration law.
Obama attacks Sean Hannity almost daily. He slams Bill O'Reilly for asking the right questions.
Is he so stupid that he doesn't know who his opponent is? He has run one of the worst campaigns I've ever seen. There is no control over anything… It's a chaotic mess. Just think if he does get elected, the mess we'll have in the White House. It's plain scarry. Maybe we should change his name to Barack O'Blooper.
With the market today, it is more and more important not to gamble on hiring a rookie for President.

Democrat Women: He disrespected Hillary Clinton and the "in the tank for Obama" media egged him on and he threw Hillary and her 18-million votes under the bus.
American Moms: He called Sarah Palin a pig in lipstick and she's representative of middle America and female…I wonder if he actually knew she was female.
Senior Citizens: He anyone who is older is a rotting fish wrapped in yesterday's newspaper.
American's who don't use computers: I hate to tell Obama that many Americans don't use computers and get along just fine. America has run just fine for many years without computers. What if we get a solar storm that knocks out our computers and Obama is in charge…he'll be lost because he's illiterate without a computer.
Christians: He's comparing himself to Jesus, as a community organizer…that's pure sacrilege. Christians are holding on to their guns and religion….didn't Obama make a big deal out of being a Christian instead of a Muslim?
Hunters: He called middle Americans with guns bitter.
Women who Don't Have Abortions: He called Sarah Palin stupid for not aborting her Down Syndrome baby, offending Catholics, Evangelicals and those who oppose abortion.
How many groups does this guy hate and how many will he continue to insult before Americans scream "ENOUGH." He's a nut ball.
The only group he hasn't offended yet, is Muslims. Interesting.

Oprah, who allegedly championed women’s rights now refuses to interview the first female Republican Vice President candidate in history but has interviewed Barak Obama prior to the beginning of the campaign, and then endorsed him. In the process she threw Hillary Clinton under the bus.
Harry Reid, said before the surge even began, that it was (past tense) a failure. He joined Obama saying the same thing. The surge has been an incredible success. Obviously their judgement is flawed. Obama reluctantly admitted it's success.
Joe Biden says that he plans to waste American's time to bring charges against President Bush, who kept every terrorist attack away from American streets since 911. That would be like charging Harry Truman for stopping WWII with the nuclear bomb saving thousands American soldiers.
Democrat liberal feminists have criticized Sarah Palin for keeping her Down Syndrome child. Interestingly, it is a critical illustration that killing babies is more important than any other issue for the “Pink” feminazis.
This list is so descriptive of what Liberal Democrats really are. They have rejected their alleged fundamental principles for the pursuit of power. They are sickening.

The following is a paragraph from Paul Weyrich on NewsMax.
"Sportscaster Chris Collingsworth asked Bryant why he would give up his summer to play with the American Olympic team when he could be earning big bucks at home. Bryant said that when he got the Olympics uniform he spread it out on his bed and gazed at it for a long time. He said, “Our country, we believe, is the greatest county in the world, and it’s given us so many great opportunities and it’s just this sense of pride that you have, that you say, you know what? Our country is the best.”
Collingsworth was not expecting that sort of comment. Taken aback, he asked Bryant if such pride isn't a relic of a bygone era."
These are the kind of reporters on NBC generally both in the sports department and the news department. They hate America. They simply can’t understand why someone would be patriotic in America. So to Chris Collinsworth...why would anybody think you’re worthy to kiss the souls of the boots of the soldiers that keep you protecte.d. Cheers to the patriotic to America Kobe Bryant. Thank You Kobe...to Collingsworth, Go to Hell! And be quick about it. Hell is Iran...go there, you’ll love it with your attitude and we’ll be glad you’re gone.

The Truth is that we definitely CAN drill and convert coal our way out of our dependence on foreign energy. That doesn’t mean that oil won’t be expensive, but we could be a net exporter of oil to China and get some of our money back and at least we would have a way to cut our trade imbalance with the Chinese. If we don't go after our own oil NOW, in ten years gas could easily go to $10 to $15 dollars per gallon, then what would you do for a job? The American economy will die on the vine and your job with it.
Believe the lie if you want, but believe too, you'll be killing America too.
So when you hear the Democrat Lie...We can’t drill our way out of this...it’s just that, a lie

Wind Jammers column on the Opinion page of the WJS. The hypocrisy of their stand and the sheer idiocy cannot be over stated. If they keep this up, they will destroy the American Economy without half trying, and Obama is one of them.
Tip of the hat to WSJ for illustrating the utter frustration of dealing with people who only feel and refuse to think.

I don’t like John McCain much, but at least he has the right kind and depth of experience at a crucial time. I say no to an Obama gamble. The future of America is certainly at risk. 143 Days in the US Senate is simple not enough time to gain the experience to lead America. Obama wants to surrender in Iraq just as we are winning. He has no clue what to do in Georgia/Russia conflict. He proposes socialistic solutions to America’s problems. He would put North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Syria on the same plane as America. We simply cannot afford that lack of experience.
I vote NO on OBAMA

is concerned about John Edward's affair with a bimbo.
Haven't we already settled this once and for all during
the Clinton bimbo eruptions which Hillary totally ignored
or defended or denied. And didn't Clinton get off the
lying to a federal judge and impeachment because it was
just sex and not one Democrat Senator went to or read the documentation
provided by the investigators housed in a special room in the
Capitol especially for their eyes only revealing what Clinton
James Carville ended the question when he said it's
just about sex...so what...everybody lies about sex!!!
And it didn't stop Bill Clinton not only from being
elected or breaking the sexual harassment laws by
fooling around with a 21-year-old intern who was
an underling...pun very much intended...or get him
convicted during impeachment.
Remember, sexual improprieties by Democrats are totally
acceptable...and totally unacceptable by any Republican.
Get Over it. Who cares if Edwards did it while his wife is dying of
cancer and he is lying...It's just sex, Thank you James baby.

That much oil will increase world supply and lower prices. You haters have said that the Iraqi war was all about oil but we have not confiscated one barrel to repay Americans who have so far paid totally for freeing their country from tyranny and oppression, from rape chambers and from torturous murder rooms and rebuilding infrastructure.
Here's the challenge question for you Bush haters. Now that the war is being won, peace is returning and Iraq is rejoining the real world, do you demand that some of the huge windfall oil profits Iraq is now collecting, be returned to the American tax payers who footed the bill?
Be very careful how you answer this because if you claim that a portion of that oil money should be returned to America, you will be hypocritically demanding exactly what you castigated Bush/Cheney for....fighting the war for oil. You must answer that any oil Iraq pumps and sells and the profits it reaps with high oil prices, must specifically NOT be given to America to repay us for our rebuilding their war torn county and providing their new freedom.

Hi Everyone-- Just thought i'd share my exciting day with you....
Im glad I have learned to love Philadelphia BEFORE I had to register my car! Because if not, I don’t think I would have lasted a week.
So, since the tags on my car expired on July 31, the super on-the-ball-gal that I am, decided to register my car on Aug 1. (you know, to beat the long lines and avoid the DMV for as long as possible).
So I packed the kids up and left by 8am to beat the crowds. i was told by a friend to go to a car service station where they could do the emissions, etc and also the actual registration. So i arrived right on time only to find out that I had to go to a different place since i moved from out of state. so I put the kids back in the car and drove to the next place where I was then told I was in the wrong place, but I could walk a few blocks to the correct location.
SO the kids and I walked and were greeted by an extremely questionable crowd outside the door of the building. Of course they were all outside waiting for it to open... so we waited and waited until 9 am and then all entered like little rats at feeding time.
after waiting in that line, the man explained to me that i had to have a PA driver's license in order to register my car in PA. Oh, that was news since my friend told me she was able to do it without a PA license--(at the first place we went) but ok, i was still in a decent mood. so the man told me the address of the "best" place to go.
I should have asked him what his definition of BEST is.
so we get in the car and head to the BEST location which is in the heart of philadelphia-- right in China town and about a half hour drive from where I was. (mind you it was about 9 miles away, just a lot of traffic). Of course we get there and there is absolutely nowhere to park. I drove around in circles for about 15 mintues and finally found a 1 hour metered parking place about 3 blocks away. hmmm...why would they only have 1 hour parking places by a DMV??? So we get out of the car, put my $ in and told the kids we needed to hurry since we only had one hour.
the first thing we were greeted by was the profile of a bare bum --a homeless woman peeing on the side of the rode. that was special. then we walked on by the bus station where a ginormous woman in a white dress and headphones was dancing seductively while looking into the mirrored doors of the station....hmmm
we arrived at the license center, waited in line, and when we got to the front we were told that we could not pay with cash or credit card but that we had to have a money order.....OH OF COURSE!!! WHY DIDNT I THINK OF THAT!? So she told me where I could go to get a money order "right around the corner there is a jewelry store who sells them". Ok.
So we left, and started wandering around looking for this jewelry store... I know i am in a questionable neighborhood because there is a police officer on just about every corner. we look and look and walk and walk and dont find it. then I see a bank! yeah! so i wait in line at the bank-- which took 10 minutes. When i get to the front the ever so kind woman explains that since i am not a customer of the bank, she cannot sell me a money order. I then began to beg her. she was cold as stone. She referred me to the jewlery store down the street that sells them.
So we all start walking again. Remember that this is summer-- about 90 degrees and 500% humidity, i am dragging two kids who are hungry, bored, and want to go home-- and I am about 10 months pregnant and my feet are bursting out of my shoes with water retention.
We finally find the "jewelry store" which i honestly didnt see any jewlery, but a small Western Union sign on the roof. (clearly out of sight since we were walking under the roof..) and headed back to the DMV. Luckily the process went somewhat quickly and as they called my # I realized that I only had 5 minutes to get back to my car. So i told her and she quickly took my money, etc.
I still had to wait in a different line to get my picture, etc... but I could leave and come back.
OK! LETS GO KIDS! on another walk for 3 blocks, back to the car (next to the scary bus stop) to put a few more quarters in.... and then walk back! of course when i got there I was 2 minutes late and had a big "VIOLATION" on my windshield. a ticket. Shocking.
You can only imagine the rest... me waiting in line again... wiping the tears away so they can take my picture, the kids are still hot, hungry and having a very "boring" day. Yes, very boring...
So we left with absolutely no time to go back and actually get the car registered... it was noon already-- 4 hours from the time we started, and I had a doctor's appointment at noon. SO i arrived 1/2 hour late for my appointment, entering in to a waiting room so full of people the girls and i could not sit next to eachother. (of course we have state insurance-- which we are VERY grateful for, but you do get what you pay for). THere we waited 2 1/2 hours for my appt which took 5 mintues (blood pressure looks good, baby seems fine, you need to watch your weight....NEXT TIME I WILL GOT TO THE Local pharmacy and have them check my blood pressure and I will call the doc if i get worried!). and of course even at the drs. office we get to pay for parking so i paid the $5 parking fee (luckily we got out before the next 1/2 hour charge) and went home.
A day of "work" and still my car is not registered... the car is still full of books to return to the library and things to mail at the PO (more government institutions)... but we are all too grouchy to care...
However we are grateful that we are all healthy and alive...and that the government doesnt run the 7-11 where we got our slurpees in record time.
This is what you get with OBAMA government of liberal/socialism. As for me...I don’t want it...but if Obama is elected it is exactly what we’ll get. Is this what you want?

Just think about it this way. Democrats want to stop you from driving by at least 50 to cut gas prices and are at this moment crafting legislation that will stop drilling, increase penalties on “carbon” users, and increase taxes on everything.
What would you have to stop doing if you decreased your driving my 50%. It’s all well and good to conserve, but not to drill is pure stupidity, especially when we have more shale oil than Saudi Arabia has oil reserves. Just think, America could be the number one oil exporter in the world if the Democrats would just take their heads out of the place where the Sun doesn’t shine.
I think they’re not just stupid, they’re crazy too. It will be 50 years before America has enough alternative sources to replace oil, and we have enough oil to meet the demand for that long. Wind is a joke. Ethanol is dangerous to food supplies, solar will be at least 50 years before it’s viable in any serious amount.
The biggest problem we have in Energy is not supply, but storage. All carbon coal and oil energy sources are, are storage systems. If we could store energy created by hydroelectric, solar, wind or anything else, to use when needed, we wouldn’t have a problem. But we’ve done precious little to research mass energy story capabilities. I think that should be a major thrust of any energy plan. Has anybody discussed this with the Energizer Bunny?

Two goals of his administration would be to secure all loose nuclear material during his first term and to rid the world of nuclear weapons, Obama told an audience before a roundtable discussion at Purdue University.
Obama is either mentally retarded or so ill-informed on foreign affairs as to be dangerous to assert that he can propose to impose the elimination of nuclear weapons as his central foreign policy. Just what will he do when Ahmadinejad tells him to go suck eggs. Will be walk away humiliated and America weakened in the eyes of the rest of the world, or will he call out the bombers to force his policy on those who refuse to abide by it?
The man is such an incredible lightweight when it comes to long term implications of proposed foreign policy it is mind boggling.

AP Exclusive: U.S. Removes Uranium From Iraq
Saturday, July 5, 2008 3:00 PM
The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program -- a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium -- reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" -- the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment _ was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.
Editor’s note: Notice how the Associated Press released this information on a Saturday afternoon of a holiday weekend when the readership and potential publication was at the lowest possible point. And you think AP and the mainstream media aren't biased? JOSPEH WILSON WHERE ARE YOU WHEN WE NEED YOU TO EXPLAIN THAT SADDAM DIDN'T HAVE ANY YELLOWCAKE OR TRY TO BUY ANY!

In your letter to President George W. Bush you demand that he stop the genocide in Darfur. Nat Hentoff of The Washington Times reports extensively on Farrow’s letter to Bush says “I believe Mr. Bush has this capacity within him not only to strengthen his legacy, but more deeply meaningful to him, to answer the renewed call of his conscience and save many thousands of lives in Darfur.”
The hypocrisy of both Farrow and Hentoff is unmitigated. Farrow’s liberal left has demanded that we never go to war for any reason. She and her liberal friends including Hentoff in this case have demeaned, degraded, called into question the intelligence of Mr. Bush at every opportunity and have perpetually and loudly trumpeted Mr. Bush’s alleged ineptitude but are demanded he has the “capacity” to instantly solve the Darfur problem.
Undoubtedly, Farrow was against the war against terror and terrorists. No Big Deal! Who cares, they were only killing Americans. I did an extensive comparison of the number of those killed by Saddam Hussein during his 25 years of power. It turns out, with the wars he started, he was killing an average of 450 people per day. Bush put an end to that. You’ve demanded we get immediately get out of Iraq which could leave the county to Islamofacists.
Now you are saying that America must go into Darfur and save the people there. OK, Miss Farrow, lets go, and let’s, put your sons and daughters in the front lines...and Mr. Hentoff’s sons and daughters, and if they can get beat Lt. Gen. Omar Bashir without the help of the American Congress, without American money or arms and without any bloodshed of any American blood, with the exception of Farrow and Hentoff’s children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, then by all means, lets go. And I can sit around calling you and Hentoff warmongers and haters.
Do you want American to become the world’s policemen Miss Farrow? Are you suggesting we go to war to do what you demand? Are you willing to sacrifice your own children for the cause. I have a son who is a soldier, and our soldiers get spit on by the likes of you and Mr. Hentoff. Why don’t you ask Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Syria to do the job. They’re nations of the world!
But NO! you, with your hypocrisy, demand America do it. Why don’t you get troops from Zimbabwe, Germany, France, Japan, Belgium, South Africa, Indonesia, Russia, China, India, Pakistan or Egypt to help? Let those countries spend their money and shed the blood of their children....America has done enough.

What do these politicians have in common.
Barak Obama, Democrat Presidential nominee.
Ed Meese, Republican adviser to Ronald Reagan.
Christopher Dodd, CN-Democrat named as potential Obama Democrat VP nominee and chairman of Senate Banking Committee.
Kent Conrad ND-Democrat.
John Johnson, Democrat and Countrywide Chief involved in sub-prime home loans and picked by Obama to Vet his VP choice.
All five received or were involved in special treatment in mortgage home loans. Four of the five are Democrats and still active in politics. The four democrats blamed President Bush for the sub-prime home loans while taking advantage questionable home loans for themselves.

Green con artists promote a politically correct lie that Arctic National Wildlife Reserve holds a minuscule amount of oil and not worth drilling for. But until we actually start test drilling and find out what is there, that claim is a lie.
Estimated crude reserves in (ANWR) and surrounding areas (meaning drilling laterally into off shore, under native lands and federal lands) range from95% chance there is 5.7 to a 5% chance there are 16 billion barrels or a mien average of 10.4 billion barrels of crude (figures taken from Wikipedia so take them with a grain of salt although other sources make similar predictions). Given that half of a barrel of crude can be refined into gasoline, there could be as much as 20.8 billion barrels of gas in ANWR alone. The other fact is that there are other areas of Alaska that are still being explored. Russia is going full blast to find oil under the North Pole. What is America doing about ANWR...living in a total state of denial. Had President Bill (my zipper is permanently stuck in the down position) Clinton approved the drilling in ANWR during his administration, we’d be getting a million barrels a day in extra oil now, or about 5% of our needs or just under half what we currently get from Saudi Arabia.
Purdhoe Bay had known reserves of 13 billion and was producing 450,000 barrels per day in 2006. At 21 gallons of gas refined per barrel, that's 9.4 million gallons of gas per day. (Washington Post 6-7-2005). The cryptic comment at the end of the Wikipedia statement reads: "In total, the oil deposits in ANWR contain enough oil to solely support U.S. consumption for 7 months (4.3B estimate) to 2 years (16B estimate)".
Remember, the claim is that if ANWR were the ONLY source of supply for the entire United States of America it could supply America for up to 2 years. That is a huge realization. In 1980, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated the [Alaska] Coastal Plain could contain up to 17 billion barrels of oil and 34 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
In 1951 the Bakken Oil Reserves were discovered. The Bakken find covers areas in Canada, Montana and North Dakota and is approximate 200,000 square miles. Up until recently the technology and the per-barrel recovery costs made it too expensive to recover, although one test well has produced 750,000 barrels per year with standard drilling techniques. The estimated amount of oil in the Bakken Reserves range for 2 to 5 billion, to as much as 450 billion...more than all of Saudia Arabia’s reserves. The real question is how much of it is recoverable. The other question is “WHAT THE HELL ARE WE WAITING FOR?”
American thinking is sick. We aren’t thinking any more, we’re feeling...we’ve been fiberalized or Oprahized. We must sound and look as though we care...reality is meaningless. Under the new thought processes, if we look right, sound right, and are green enough, we are right. American industry, including our auto companies are going bankrupt using this type of thinking.
Democrats put a moratorium on the effort to convert oil shale into fuel. Coal liquidization is being thwarted. Oprahized and Al Gore type thinking has made American’s believe it’s possible to convert away from carbon fuel in a matter of a few years. That’s not just pathetic, it’s patently insane. Obama want’s to raise gas prices, cut back on drilling, restrict exploration, tax promising innovation and eliminate carbon technology...so plan on $10 to $15 per gallon gas prices.
The sad truth is that America has enough carbon energy (coal and shale oil) to last us for 100 years without half trying, if we are allowed to get it. Maybe when Americans realize the GREEN Kool Aide they're wolfing down won’t give them the fuel they want in the time frame they expect, then they will say this isn’t working and we had better start drilling. By then it may be too late, and our economy will be so dead we won’t be able afford to get our own energy. Why don’t we develop better technology to clean coal and oil emissions and use the fuel God has given us (nuclear, hydrogen and potential fusion) instead of trying to develop impossible biofuels and starve ourselves to death in the process.

Former White House spokesman Scott McClellan faces an interesting dilemma. Obviously he will never be trusted by Republicans again nor invited to any of their events. He has earned the "Benedict Arnold" award who, as Bob Dole said, is collecting his 30 pieces of silver. On the other hand, he will be paid a lot of money to repeat his traitorous accusations.
He will likely be invited to give speeches at Democrat venues and rake in some big bucks as a traitor. But, the Democrats won't trust McCellan any more than they trust President Bush because he's turned on Bush and he could turn on Democrats. I predict Scott McClellan will be a very lonely man.
He reminds me of another historically significant McClellan whose first name, ironically, was George. Here is the quote from Wikipedia "General [George B.] McClellan also failed to maintain the trust of [President] Lincoln, and proved to be frustratingly insubordinate to the commander-in-chief."
Seems history repeats itself when it comes to the name McCellan.
