...Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed...
Patrick Henry (1736-1799) US Founding Father
These people aren't educators, they're fascist bullies and they ought to be lined up for swats at the next PTA meeting, given ten Saturdays of study hall to study the Constitution, logic and the history of Socialism. Then fired for harming children.
Obama Pastors' Sermons May Violate Tax Laws On Christmas morning, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. compared presidential candidate Barack Obama's impoverished childhood to Jesus Christ's. "Barack knows what it means to be a black man living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich white people," he then trumpeted. "Hillary [Clinton] can never know that."
Mr. Wright wasn't at a convention or a campaign stop. He was standing at the pulpit before the mostly African-American congregation of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ, where Sen. Obama has worshiped for more than 20 years.
Mr. Wright, who will be ending his 36-year tenure as the church's senior pastor in June, has previously been criticized for comments deriding President George Bush and lauding Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. Now Mr. Wright's and his successor's repeated enthusiastic promotion of their famous parishioner may be running afoul of federal tax law, which says churches can endanger their tax-exempt status by endorsing or opposing candidates for public office.
I am positive that the left will be decrying politics from the pulpit just as they did with Martin Luther King, Sloan Coffin, Desmond TuTu Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson to name a few.
I am also sure that Barack will stop the Obama-Rama and racist behavior from the pulpit in the "church" he has attended for 20 years.
Maybe for Wright and some others, Farrakhan "epitomized greatness." For most Americans, though, Farrakhan epitomizes racism, particularly in the form of anti-Semitism. Over the years, he has compiled an awesome record of offensive statements, even denigrating the Holocaust by falsely attributing it to Jewish cooperation with Hitler -- "They helped him get the Third Reich on the road." His history is a rancid stew of lies.
“When his enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli” to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, Mr. Wright recalled, “with Farrakhan, a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell.”

The Gov is dead, Long live the Gov.
David Alexander Paterson (born May 20, 1954) is an American politician and the current Lieutenant Governor of New York. He is the first African American and the first legally blind person to hold this position. He was selected as running mate by New York Attorney General and Democratic Party nominee Eliot Spitzer in the 2006 New York gubernatorial election. Governor Spitzer has publicly stated he will resign, effective March 17, 2008, which would make Paterson the first African American Governor of New York and the first legally blind governor in the nation.
UPDATE: No, I do not believe Paterson is where he is because he looks like Mel Brookes.
The Stryker Mobile Gun System (MGS) vehicles, which are partially built in Lima, Ohio, are loved by the troops using them. Yes, there are improvements to be made, but boots-on-the-ground like them and say they are very effective which is why those in Washington, DC are pumping out reports of failure as fast as their commandeered counterfeit machines can pump them out. Their pork is more important than MGS "pork" that wins battles and saves soldiers lives.
The insurgents behave differently when an armored vehicle is present. “It establishes fear, if you will, in those who would try to do us or our fellow soldiers harm,” Holbrook says. “The enemy is a lot less likely to attack if we are out there.” ........... Why help our soldiers help 50+million people coming out of the heart of darkness to live in peace and freedom when you can build entire bureaucracies to "help" those that refuse to help themselves as they have their hands out for more government goodies.
Ferraro's Remarks About Obama Decried "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept."
Ferraro appeared on ABC this morning to do her indignant mommy act stating that she is "hurt, hurt, hurt" by this and adding, to admonish those that doubt her status, that her comments were taken out of context. The nation, collectively, is to take a time out and face the corner. Nanna Geri will tell us when time is up.
I found it interesting that following our collective punishment all the networks had scrambled to find professional whores to explain Spitzer's actions and to add that basically all men, especially those in power, act like this.
One segment was an ad for a Party while the second was an ad for a party.
