Obama for Odinga

If the general public knew that Obama supports thugs like Odinga, ... (never mind. In 2008, people do not want to be bothered with the facts.)

Our Tax System Explained in Beer

By: David R. Kamerschen, Ph.D. Professor of Economics University of Georgia

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten
comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it
would go something like this:

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the
arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.

'Since you are all such good customers,' he said, 'I'm going to reduce
the cost of your daily beer by $20. 'Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the
first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free.

But what about the other six men - the paying customers? How could they
divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?'

They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted
that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would
each end up being paid to drink his beer.

So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's
bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the
amounts each should pay.

And so the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings)..
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued
to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to
compare their savings.

'I only got a dollar out of the $20,' declared the sixth man. He pointed
to the tenth man,' but he got $10!

''Yeah, that's right ,' exclaimed the fifth man. 'I only saved a dollar,
too. It's unfair that he got ten times more than I!!

''That's true!!' shouted the seventh man. 'Why should he get $10 back
when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!

'Wait a minute,' yelled the first four men in unison. 'We didn't get
anything at all. The system exploits the poor!!!

'The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night the
tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers
without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered
something important.

They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our
tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most
benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being
wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might
start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

Anti-Obama txt

Wired News
The link above takes you to a story claiming that some people in OH received anti-Obama text messages to thier cellphones. The txt message says something like
Obamites are blind, deaf, and stupid, Call 641-715-3900 ext. 84907
youll see what I mean, lol, obamites should all move to Harlem

Some say that the messages they heard when they called the number (641-715-3900, ext. 83682 or 84907) were racist. I listened and found them to be harmless. I too don't appreciate unsolisted text messages though.

Obama's Mentor, Terrorist William Ayers, in his own words

William Ayers' forgotten communist manifesto: Prairie Fire: "William Ayers is a communist. But don't take my word for it. He said so himself ... And not some nicey-nice peace-and-love kind of communist. Through his group the Weather Underground, Ayers was planning to 'seize power' in a violent communist takeover of the United States:"

Obama is bad news!

Do we want this guy commanding the greatest military in the world?

FrontPage Magazine: "With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has 'always been a Christian,' despite new information further confirming Obama's Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.

Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama's connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its 'consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism.'"

Hot Air Anti-Obama Summary

Hot Air » Blog Archive » The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama: "The comprehensive argument against Barack Obama"

Obama and the "New" Party

Something New Here by Stanley Kurtz on National Review Online: "During his first campaign for the Illinois state senate in 1995-96, Barack Obama was a member of, and was endorsed by, the far-left New Party. Obama’s New Party ties give the lie to his claim to be a post-partisan, post-ideological pragmatist. Particularly in Chicago, the New Party functioned as the electoral arm of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). So despite repeated attempts to distance himself from ACORN, Obama’s New Party ties raise disturbing questions about his links to those proudly militant leftists. The media’s near-total silence on this critical element of Obama’s past is deeply irresponsible."


This guy is a fellow traveler of Barack Hussein Obama. A communist AND an islamist. It kind of make you wonder where his loyalties will lie if he becomes POTUS.

Daniel Pipes, on Obama's connections to extreme Islam

Obama funded foreign thug who promised Islamic state

Obama funded foreign thug who promised Islamic state: "Odinga took over the office of prime minister in Kenya after his campaign called for protests of an election he lost by more than 200,000 votes to incumbent Mwai Kibaki. The resulting violence by marauding Muslim mobs left 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes and 800 Christian churches damaged or destroyed. No Islamic mosques were damaged, however."

I am not indicting individual Muslims. I am not even saying that Obama is a Muslim. But the very fact that he supported this Marxist Muslim THUG in Kenya is cause for concern. (FYI: 800 damaged or destroyed Christian Churches, 0 damaged Mosques.) I wouldn't even care if he was Muslim, if I was comfortable with his pro-American loyalties. I'm just not feeling it.

Obviously, he has been less than forthcoming of his Muslim background. Daniel Pipes raises some very good concerns about his Muslim upbringing, that I think deserve a closer look by Americans in the final 14 days before we coronate him.
"Obama's having been born and raised a Muslim and having left the faith to become a Christian make him neither more nor less qualified to become president of the United States. But if he was born and raised a Muslim and is now hiding that fact, this points to a major deceit, a fundamental misrepresentation about himself that has profound implications about his character and his suitability as president."

American Thinker: The Last Two Years

AMAZING! 911/114 - The Plan To Control America

Too many coincidences. This can't be true. He can't be that diabolical. So many people can't be wrong. He IS the change we've been waiting for. He said he has been a lifelong Christian. Why would he lie about that? This must be another right wing racist hit job to attempt to prevent the first black president of the 57 Islamic--oops--United States of America over the next 10 years.

Opinion: Plumber Joe didn't go with the flow

Opinion: Plumber Joe didn't go with the flow | joe, plumber, fact, obama, check - "Anyway, our Fact Check Unit ran the numbers on the Obama tax-cut plan and the number is correct: '95.' It's the words 'percent' immediately following that are wrong: that's a typing error accidentally left in from the first draft. It should read: Under the Obama plan, 95 of the American people will get a tax cut."

This piece is BRILLIANT! I love MARK STEYN.

Here are some more samples:

In that sentence about you spreading the wealth around, there's another typing error: that "you" should read "I, Barack." "You" will have no say in it. Joe the Plumber might think he himself can spread it around just fine, but everyone knows "trickle-down economics" don't work. So President-presumptive Obama kindly explained the new exquisitely condescending "talking-down economics." Put that in your pipe and solder it.

"We need you down here checking out this Joe the Plumber," editors barked to journalists.

"But I'm this close to wrapping up the Wasilla Town Library banned-book investigation!"

"Forget it! The Atlantic Monthly is claiming Joe the Plumber is Trig's real father. We can't get behind on this. Get to Minneapolis Airport. Joe the Plumber was seen in the bathroom with Sen. Larry Craig."

Alas, as a result of this massive investment of journalistic resources, no investigative reporter will be free to investigate ACORN voter-registration fraud or Obama's ties to terrorist educator William Ayers until, oh, midway through his second term at least.

SOMEBODY needs to stick up for Bush the Younger

The Wrong Target: "Both candidates should realize that, in spite of today's low presidential approval surveys (and remembering that Congress's are far worse), history will judge this president very well — better than whichever one of the candidates that succeeds him, we'll bet."

Riding High Before Dems Grabbed Congress in 2006

I got an email today from a friend.

Funny, I never thought about this, but the "change" since the 2006 Mid-terms HAS been dramatic, to say the least. An Obama victory will sure give us more of this "change." Maybe we should "change" Congress back to Republican control. McCain touched on this slightly in the third presidential debate.

MCCAIN: I want to leave money in your pocket. I want you to be able to choose the health care for you and your family. That's what I'm all about. And we've got too much government and too much spending and the government is -- the size of government has grown by 40 percent in the last eight years.

We can't afford that in the next eight years and Senator Obama, with the Democrats in charge of Congress, things have gotten worse. Have you noticed, they've been in charge the last two years.

I am not agreeing that all current ills can be traced back to the 2006 mid-terms, but if Barack Hussein Obama can sit there and blame Bush and Republicans on eight years of a failed philosophy (most of which were somewhat prosperous) than certainly Republicans (and McCain) can propagandize about the "failed policies" and inaction of the Democrat-lead Congress past two years. And folks forget that Bush inherited the dot-com bust and Clinton Recession, as well as a massive terrorist attack that furthered the economic pain and panic. With the cards he was dealt, George W. Bush acted bravely and aggressively to fend off these two great challenges early on in his first term. I only wish that he pursued some of his other attempts at reform more agggressively. (i.e, FannieMae/FreddieMac, Social Security, Energy, etc...)

Here is the the email:
Plain simple truth


George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years.
The first six years the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high.
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon.
3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.
4) the DOW JONES hit a record high--14,000 +
5) American's were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, living large!...

But American's wanted 'CHANGE'! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes--we got 'CHANGE' all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted.
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon & climbing! [$3.00 now]
3) Unemployment is up to 5.5% (a 10% increase)
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS

and prices still dropping
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low ~~

Mithal Alousi: [Iraq] is indeed occupied. It is occupied by Iran.

Following are excerpts from an interview with Iraqi MP Mithal Alousi, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on September 19, 2008.

Mithal Alousi: [Iraq] is indeed occupied. It is occupied by Iran. The official Iraqi state, the parliament elected by 12 million people, and the Iraqi government, with all the good and bad... We signed [an agreement] with the U.N. Security Council, which includes Qatar, Syria, Egypt, Russia, and Japan. All these countries are U.N. members. We requested the Security Council to extend the duration of the international forces. What occupation are you talking about...

Host: I am talking about occupation by means of the American bases in Iraq, by means of tens of thousands of American and non-American soldiers in Iraq. These are the manifestations of the occupation in Iraq.

Mithal Alousi: My dear, these manifestations exist in the country from which you broadcast a sovereign country that we respect as well as in other countries. I want there to be military bases in Iraq, but on condition that there are agreements which guarantee the rebuilding of the Iraqi army, and guarantee the strategic military balance, so that I can prevent a war and an Iranian takeover of Iraq.<.p>

My friend, the largest American military base in the world is in Qatar. Does this constitute occupation? I congratulate the tiny, budding and creative state of Qatar for gaining a political role in the region. This is a good thing. This is what I want for Iraq too.

Obama Voted 'Present' on Mortgage Reform -

Obama Voted 'Present' on Mortgage Reform -
OCTOBER 15, 2008
Obama Voted 'Present' on Mortgage Reform
The only banking 'deregulation' in recent years was that of Fan and Fred.
In each of the first two presidential debates, Barack Obama claimed that "Republican deregulation" is responsible for the financial crisis. Most viewers probably accepted this idea, especially because Republicans generally do favor deregulation.
But one essential fact was missing from the senator's narrative: While there has been significant deregulation in the U.S. economy during the last 30 years, none of it has occurred in the financial sector. Indeed, the only significant legislation with any effect on financial risk-taking was the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991, adopted during the first Bush administration in the wake of the collapse of the savings and loans (S&Ls). FDICIA, however, substantially tightened commercial bank and S&L regulations, including prompt corrective action when a bank's capital declines below adequate levels and severe personal fines if management violates laws or regulations.
If Sen. Obama had been asked for an example of "Republican deregulation," he would probably have cited the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (GLBA), which has become a popular target for Democrats searching for something to pin on the GOP. This is puzzling. The bill's key sponsors were indeed Republicans, but the bill was supported by the Clinton administration and signed by President Clinton. The GLBA's "repeal" of a portion of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 is said to have somehow contributed to the current financial meltdown. Nonsense.
Adopted early in the New Deal, the Glass-Steagall Act separated investment and commercial banking. It prohibited commercial banks from underwriting or dealing in securities, and from affiliating with firms that engaged principally in that business. The GLBA repealed only the second of these provisions, allowing banks and securities firms to be affiliated under the same holding company. Thus J.P. Morgan Chase was able to acquire Bear Stearns, and Bank of America could acquire Merrill Lynch. Nevertheless, banks themselves were and still are prohibited from underwriting or dealing in securities.
Allowing banks and securities firms to affiliate under the same holding company has had no effect on the current financial crisis. None of the investment banks that have gotten into trouble -- Bear, Lehman, Merrill, Goldman or Morgan Stanley -- were affiliated with commercial banks. And none of the banks that have major securities affiliates -- Citibank, Bank of America, and J.P. Morgan Chase, to name a few -- are among the banks that have thus far encountered serious financial problems. Indeed, the ability of these banks to diversify into nonbanking activities has been a source of their strength.
Most important, the banks that have succumbed to financial problems -- Wachovia, Washington Mutual and IndyMac, among others -- got into trouble by investing in bad mortgages or mortgage-backed securities, not because of the securities activities of an affiliated securities firm. Federal Reserve regulations significantly restrict transactions between banks and their affiliates.
If Sen. Obama were truly looking for a kind of deregulation that might be responsible for the current financial crisis, he need only look back to 1998, when the Clinton administration ruled that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac could satisfy their affordable housing obligations by purchasing subprime mortgages. This ultimately made it possible for Fannie and Freddie to add a trillion dollars in junk loans to their balance sheets. This led to their own collapse, and to the development of a market in these mortgages that is the source of the financial crisis we are wrestling with today.
Finally, on the matter of deregulation and the financial crisis, Sen. Obama should consider his own complicity in the failure of Congress to adopt legislation that might have prevented the subprime meltdown.
In the summer of 2005, a bill emerged from the Senate Banking Committee that considerably tightened regulations on Fannie and Freddie, including controls over their capital and their ability to hold portfolios of mortgages or mortgage-backed securities. All the Republicans voted for the bill in committee; all the Democrats voted against it. To get the bill to a vote in the Senate, a few Democratic votes were necessary to limit debate. This was a time for the leadership Sen. Obama says he can offer, but neither he nor any other Democrat stepped forward.
Instead, by his own account, Mr. Obama wrote a letter to the Treasury Secretary, allegedly putting himself on record that subprime loans were dangerous and had to be dealt with. This is revealing; if true, it indicates Sen. Obama knew there was a problem with subprime lending -- but was unwilling to confront his own party by pressing for legislation to control it. As a demonstration of character and leadership capacity, it bears a strong resemblance to something else in Sen. Obama's past: voting present.

Obama and Acorn -

Obama and Acorn: "All this money gives Acorn the ability to pursue its other great hobby: electing liberals. Acorn is spending $16 million this year to register new Democrats and is already boasting it has put 1.3 million new voters on the rolls. The big question is how many of these registrations are real."

How Obama's Alliances Connect to the Debate on the Economy

October 7, 2008

Listen To It! WMP | RealPlayer

Audio clips available for Rush 24/7 members only -- Join Now!


RUSH: So the Democrats preach for 18 months that the economy is in a depression. They actually try to destroy the economy with their left-wing policies. Don't forget this. You know, people are out there saying, "Rush, it's very important to tell people about Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright, but it's the economy. The economy is all people care about right now." These two things are linked, ladies and gentlemen. You cannot separate Obama's alliances with socialist leftists and say it has nothing to do with the economy. Critics are wrong that Ayers has nothing to do with the economy.

Stanley Kurtz made the point on Fox this morning that Ayers and Obama, that alliance included the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. They funneled more than $100 million to community organizers, including ACORN, which is very much at the core of this financial mess, pressuring banks to loan to noncreditworthy borrowers. The story is the hundred million dollars to the Annenberg Challenge was designed to change the focus of education, but it just didn't work out. Anyway, Obama was given 100 to $150 million with Bill Ayers to have dramatic changes, and they're playing it down. I'll tell you what, it's been hilarious to see all these leftists today warning that McCain-Palin attacks are going to hurt McCain. I have stories all over the place here, "You know, these attacks that McCain's getting into now on Obama and Palin and her attacks, why, this is just going to hurt 'em."

Really? If it was going to hurt 'em you'd be encouraging them, Drive-Bys, to continue these attacks. Here is the thing. Here's what's going on. This again is why Ayers and Jeremiah Wright and all these people are important. The Drive-By Media has done everything it can to keep Obama in a cocoon. They've got his wife taped up in a closet somewhere with tape over her mouth. Biden is off the campaign trail with a sick mother-in-law. They're taking all the people that are gaffe prone or that hate the country and make it obvious they're just angry and filled with rage, and they're silenced. We can't find Obama. It's typical of what liberal guys do it their wives. They shut 'em up when they get too noisy, when they get too vocal. Just hide them away someplace and present a picture, "Aw, she with the kids." Oh, yeah? She's with the kids who are seven and ten who go to school with Ayers' kids who are 29 and 30? Right. They have a little birthday party sometime this afternoon, right? So this is incredibly important, and more and more people are tuning in and paying attention to these questions, as you get closer and closer to the election. Here's Sarah Palin. We have her today. She was in Jacksonville, and yesterday morning in Clearwater, Florida. Here's her great line on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, bouncing off Obama and his claim, he didn't know Ayers was a terrorist.

PALIN: Since he got called out on his plans to meet unconditionally with terror state leaders like Ahmadinejad, will he now claim that he was unaware of his radical background?

AUDIENCE: No! (cheering and applause)

RUSH: I wonder, folks, what the polls would show if Palin were a distinct answer option to the question, "Who are you voting for?" How many of you in this audience are going to vote for McCain simply because you can vote for Sarah Palin? How many of you are actually voting for Palin? How many of you have decided you are not going to sit this out, but you're now energized and you are going to vote, because you're either voting against Obama or you're voting for Sarah Palin? I'll bet if they asked that question, people would be stunned at the answer. And I'll be honest, I myself, ladies and gentlemen, for the sake of effectiveness have pondered the notion of portraying, presenting this election as Palin versus Obama, because the contrast is distinct. She is on fire. Here she hammers Obama on Ayers yesterday in Clearwater, Florida.

PALIN: One of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers. And according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist, and part of a group that, quote, "launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our US capitol," and then there's even more to the story. Barack Obama says that Ayers was just someone in the neighborhood, but that's less than truthful. His own top advisors said that they were quote "certainly friendly." In fact Obama held one of his first meetings of his political career in Bill Ayers' living room, and they worked together on various projects in Chicago.

RUSH: And she continued.

PALIN: These are the same guys who think that patriotism is paying higher taxes.


PALIN: Remember, that's what Joe Biden had said. And I am just so fearful that this is not a man who sees America the way that you and I see America: as the greatest source for good in this world! I'm afraid this is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to work with a former domestic terrorist who had targeted his own country.

RUSH: Amen! Bullseye! That's why this is important. Obama's alliances -- not associations -- are with people who do not like this country. They are the ones who have mentored him. And if you think that that's not relevant to the economy, take a look at what people think the US economy should be, people like Ayers and Jeremiah Wright. It should be one of central planning, the government doling out everything to everybody according to its own definition, usually based on "fairness." You know that fairness is one of the liberal foundation building blocks, the reason they say they're doing everything. The subprime mortgage crisis was all brought about by the concept of fairness, the Democrats thinking, "It's not fair that poor people who can't afford homes don't have them."

And so they set about long ago to rectify the situation, to put people who have no business owning a home because they can't pay for one nevertheless being given mortgages that are today worthless, and then those same people in the interests of fairness forcing lending institutions to invest in these subprime loans -- and the lending institutions knew they were worthless, and so they had to start packaging them and selling them around to each other as assets. So All these financial institutions -- to keep the government off their back and trying to turn these worthless assets into something -- were packaging them and selling them, hoping that somewhere down the road that the housing bubble would continue, the prices would continue to rise and at some point these mortgages would be worth something somehow; if not mortgages, as securities.

None of it happened because the price of housing plummeted. Well, it wasn't gonna work because it was all a fraud to begin with, it was impossible. It was not possible for this to work. Obama's fingerprints are all over this. He was working with ACORN and the people who pressured Congress -- well, they pressured the Democrats in Congress -- and pressured the lending institutions to make this happen. And Barney Frank knows what's up, and Barney Frank's out there now saying that the attacks on all this are just racism. Republican racists are now making these attacks. Barney Frank and the leftists believe it's totally appropriate for people who can't afford homes to live in them as long as they're paid for by you and me. It's not fair that you and I have homes and they don't, and so they're going to see that people have homes.

It's impossible to overestimate the importance of the liberal concept of "fairness" in being a motivation for what they do. And, of course, who's opposed to fairness? It's sort of like the environmentalist wackos claim all they're doing is trying to get clean water and clean air and save the planet. Well, who wants dirty water? Who wants dirty air? Who wants a destroyed planet? Nobody does! By the same token, they're out there saying, "It's only fair that the rich pay more taxes. It's only fair that CEOs only be able to make so much. It's only fair that some people get thrown in jail for..." Of course, who's opposed to fairness? So this is just one of the many tricks that is being used. But what you have to remember is that their definition of fairness is not yours. Their definition of fairness is most of the country getting screwed in order for liberals to continue to make more and more Americans dependent on government for their daily existence.

Be right back and continue.


RUSH: As I say, the Democrats preached for 18 months the economy is in a depression; they actually tried to destroy the economy with their left-wing policies; they have tried to destroy the economy in your mind. They have been working to create a psychological recession, slash, depression, for years. They succeed in driving the economy into a precipitous gulch, and now they blame it on the Republicans. They tried to lose the war for years hoping to use that as a political issue, but we're winning, so they dropped that immediately. This is why all of this is terribly and crucially important, ladies and gentlemen. We have an entire political party and left-wing ideological apparatus that's already trying to destroy the country, even before they get into power! Imagine what they will do if they succeed. For six years they have tried to make you think your country is not what it should be or can be and its greatest days are behind us and because of that we need significant change, not to revive the greatness of America from what they say is the past, we need to rebuild it, we need to change it, because it can't be what it was.

They're already in the process of trying to destroy as much of this country as they can, great institutions like our economy and the military. And of course, when you attack the president the way they have attacked the president all of these years, it has the effect of eroding confidence in all authority, everywhere down the line, and they haven't cared about that. That's been part of their grand design as well. They want you having as little faith in your own country as they profess to have. They are in the process of destroying the country even before they get their hands on it. Now, Obama, he says that he didn't know his pastor of 20 years was a racist, an anti-Semitic Marxist. He didn't know that Bill Ayers was a domestic terrorist. And yet, Obama wrote a review of a book by Bill Ayers in 1997. Barack Obama, state senator, "A Kind and Just Parent: The Children of Juvenile Court, by William Ayers. A searing and timely account of the juvenile court system and the courageous individuals who rescue hope from despair." Chicago Tribune, December 21st, 1997. Obama reviewed a book by Ayers.

As recently as 2007, Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn are easily seen on videotape trashing capitalism, trashing the American way of life. As recently as last year, and Obama doesn't know this? He didn't know that Ayers was a domestic terrorist while he's writing books or reviews of Ayers books. He didn't know that Tony Rezko was a crook. Poor Barack Obama, why, he just didn't know, as, of course, he doesn't know that his campaign has taken in an estimated $34 million from foreign donors, including from the Middle East. He doesn't know that ACORN is registering homeless people and others to vote. He just doesn't know. Poor guy. Look at all the people keeping the truth from him. But Obama does know that if only the US military had adopted his strategy for Iraq, there would have been peace long ago. If only the US military had adopted his military strategy, the Taliban would already have been defeated in Afghanistan. If only the president had adopted his massive tax increases, his massive spending increases, massive nationalization of health care, massive redistribution of wealth plans, why, if the president had only listened to what Obama claims he does know, the economy, why, we'd be chugging along here without a hitch.

You see, folks, there is a pattern here with Obama. Those things for which he has had no responsibility and no experience and no record, he's got all the answers on those. Those things for which he actually has a record, actually has hands-on responsibility, like his past alliances and his donors, why, he can't be expected to know all those things. He's too busy knowing what to do in Iraq and Afghanistan with the economy and all that. He's too busy warning people, yeah, he's been warning for the last two years about subprime, he's been warning us about how to do things right, but the things that he touches, he doesn't know anything about. Says he wants transparency in government, but he won't release his school records, his medical records, his legislative records, and his records with Ayers. All this matters.


Big, Carb-Heavy Breakfast Key to Weight

Eating a big breakfast, heavy in carbs, is the key to keeping slim, according to new research.

A new study found that women who eat half of their daily calories first thing in the morning lose more weight in the long term than those who start the day with a small breakfast.

And they are also less likely to pile the pounds back on.

Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, from the Hospital de Clinicas in Caracas, Venezuela, who led the study, said: "A very low carbohydrate diet exacerbates the craving for carbohydrates and slows metabolism. After a short period of weight loss, there is a quick return to obesity."

It is thought that eating a meal packed with protein and carbohydrates helps cut cravings for sweet or starchy foods, and boosts the metabolism.

Scientists compared the "big breakfast" diet with a strict low-carb weight-loss regime.

Jakubowicz and a team at Virginia Commonwealth University studied 94 obese, inactive women and found that low-carb dieters initially lost more weight.

The strict low-carb diet caused an average weight loss of 28 pounds; the big-breakfast version cut 23 pounds.

However, after eight months, the strict dieters had regained 18 pounds. The big-breakfast eaters continued to drop weight, losing another 16.5 pounds.

Those on the big breakfast diet lost more than 21 percent of their body weight, compared with just 4.5 percent for the low-carb group.

Women who ate a big breakfast reported feeling less hungry, especially before lunch and had fewer cravings for carbs than the other women did. The big breakfast dieters ate an average of 1,240 calories per day, 610 of which were consumed at breakfast. The low-carb dieters ate just 1,085 calories per day.

The findings will be presented this week at ENDO 08, the 90th annual meeting of The Endocrine Society in San Francisco.

FYI ... Obama Mentor William Ayers Profile in Chicago Mag

No Regrets - Chicago Magazine - August 2001 - Chicago: "Overall, it is not easy to imagine him as part of the Weatherman, a group that during the late sixties and early seventies openly called for revolution in America, led a violent rampaging protest in Chicago, and took credit for numerous bombings around the United States."

What the Fed budget needs . . .

The new old me

What Just Happened?

Finally!!! I was wondering when (with baited breath) Republicans might actually go on the offensive about the current economic crisis. Hopefully, it is not too late, seeing that most Americans place the blame of the current crisis at the feet of rampant Wall Street greed that was bolstered by the the "right-wing," "deregulatory," "laissez faire" policies of the Bush years. Hmmm. I wonder where they got that impression? Could it be the unabashed, unapologetic, relentless offensive of Democrats, and their main-stream-media choir echoing and reinforcing the Soros/Obama/Leftist talking points? Could it be the silence of Republicans, and the magnanimous call for "bipartisanship" of McCain (who also attacks Wall Street, by the way)? No wonder Obama has benefited immensely from the current fiscal crisis, and I'm not talking about being the number one beneficiary of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac dollars in the past four years--I'm talking nearly a five-point bounce in almost every poll. Once again, Democrats create another social engineering disaster, and Republicans are left, albeit in questionable manner, with cleaning up the mess. This ad's content, and I hope more like it, needs to be the number one concept hammered into the public consciousness from here on until Election Day. As James Carville said in 1992 ... "It's the economy, stupid." Only then, does McCain/Palin have a chance. Perhaps this will also help stem the predicted veto-proof gains of Democrats in both House and the Senate.

Additional concepts for voters to easily digest:
1) Obama's radical background (Ayers, Wright, Rezko, et. al.)
2)Obama's radical Marxist Leftist elitist fairy-tail un-American agenda.
3) Republicans plan to strengthen America through Growth in the Domestic Energy Industry (Oil, Gas, Nuclear, Solar, Wind, etc.)
4) A strong National Security plan (in conjunction with friendly democracies and allies) that keeps wayward rogue nations and Islamic Fundamentalist would-be terrorists on the defensive, or more preferably, dead. Read: no appeasement.

Dick Morris Declares Palin The New Reagan And Slaps Colmes

I love how Morris destroys Colmes attempt at dishing out the Soros/Obama/DNC's talking points about McCains's so called war on the middle class, which had absolutely nothing to do with the discussion. Wonderful.

Wow! I don't think Frank will be returning to the O"Reilly Factor anytime soon.

Frank Luntz Focus Group: Palin is Ready!

This focus group's reaction was much more impressed by Palin's performance then I was.

Annexing Mexico - Hey, this was my idea ...

Annexing Mexico, Erik Rush: "The border between the United States and Mexico isn't just a boundary between nations; it's a chasm that separates a wealthy global superpower from a poverty-stricken Third World Country. To millions of Mexicans desperate for a better life, it's a finish line-to cross it undetected means to seek prosperity in America. In 1844 the United States annexed Texas and over the next few years took most of the current Southwest United States. Today, the Mexican people south-of-the-border see the benefits of life in the good-old U.S. of A. and according to polls, they're willing to finish things up and give us the rest. Columnist Erik Rush proposes that we take them up on the offer. Erik Rush say, '40% of Mexicans claim that they would move here if they could. Let's save them the effort and bring the U.S. to them.'"

Two "pirate" dramas going on in Gulf of Aden – U.S. Navy Happy to Extend Blockade of Pirate Ship: "US Navy ships and helicopters on Tuesday circled a hijacked Ukrainian freighter carrying Russian battle tanks and arms while talks were held with pirates off the Somali coast."

Mystery surrounds hijacked Iranian ship - The Long War Journal: "A tense standoff is underway in northeastern Somalia between pirates, Somali authorities, and Iran over a suspicious merchant vessel and its mysterious cargo."



Amazing that you can't access a website that was to supposedly rake in millions of dollars as a result of the Housing Bailout Plan. I wonder how its mission to help poor people get housing is related to massive (Democratic) voter fraud.

Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending - New York Times

Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending - New York Times (9/30/1999)

Wow. If we can actually pin a date as to when the "crisis" began, I guess we could say September 30, 1999. (Happy Anniversary!) For those with Bush Derangement Syndrome, I would like to remind you that Bill Clinton was President.
