Unwelcomed In The Heartland, Liberals Head For Washington

This is what the media campaigned for and what disgruntled stay-at-home republican voters, guilty voters and voters that wanted "change" wanted. Thanks people, you're killing us.

Liberal groups feel welcome again in Washington
For years, progressive groups and their causes have been in the political wilderness. Now, with Barack Obama preparing to take the White House and Democrats tightening their hold on Congress, the party's liberal constituencies can see their way to a promised land.

Their vision includes federal laws banning job discrimination against gays; expanded hate-crime laws; public land protections from logging and oil drilling; and easier union organizing of workers.

Promised land? Vision? Loaded words for a loaded article, but let's go with what they have served up.

"federal laws banning job discrimination against gays" - we'll have to hire who the government wants us to, not who we want to, but then government is so much smarter than us. Right?

"public land protections from logging and oil drilling" - a multi-goodness path that will kill the coal, oil, auto and logging industries while enriching "green" industries who support a liberal/progressive view of America. A win-win for those attempting to put a lock on power and those wanting to get wealthy from those in power. A lose-lose for America.

"easier union organizing of workers" - pure payola for the goon stepping union bosses which will take away privacy and the ability to resist unionism. It will kill off the industries that unions haven't already destroyed.

The upside for liberal/progressives is that the government will have to take more control of industry, business and our personal lives as these few "change" items start crippling our economy more than they have already, but isn't that what they planned?

Isn't that what America voted for?

Smoke, Perfume, Plain Stink, Garlic? I'll Sue!

The nanny state just keeps getting fatter and is able to squash everything in its path in its effort to save us from ourselves. So, if your offended or just don't like something or someone or if you're simply a litigious little you-know-what, just sue. Some court will be happy to hear your case and help you destroy more rights that we citizens presently have.

Smokers are now persona non grata every where outside their homes and will be illegal inside their homes soon if the do-gooders and government have their way.

Now, perfume wearers better beware.

Judge says perfume lawsuit can proceed
A Detroit city planner says co-worker's scent interferes with job performance, breathing.

Alison Johnson, chairwoman of the Chemical Sensitivity Foundation in Topsham, Maine, said she welcomes Zatkoff's decision to let the lawsuit proceed.

"These perfume sensitivities are very real, and I can't tell you how many lives they are ruining," Johnson said. "Maybe there's beginning to be recognition that these things are serious."

McBride is seeking unspecified damages. Thompson said the major goal of the lawsuit is not monetary damages but "to educate people about the issue and seek voluntary compliance, where possible."

The city is continuing to fight the lawsuit, which could be headed to trial next year.

What will they go after next? Garlic, B.O., onions, and offensive thoughts? Oh, wait. They're already litigating offensive thoughts, but they won't go after our fat and smelly government(s) that illegally interferes in our daily lives.

May God Bless You This Thanksgiving

via American Power who was kind enough to wish me a Happy Thanksgiving. His blog is new to me, but I find it refreshing honest and straightforward.

In 1778, a Thanksgiving resolution drafted by (Samuel) Adams was approved by Congress on Nov. 3, setting aside Wednesday, Dec. 30, as a day of public thanksgiving and praise,

"It having pleased Almighty God through the Course of the present year, to bestow great and manifold Mercies on the People of these United States."

Screw The Holidays & Don't Dare Mention Jesus

How much more of this are we going to take?

Ho, ho, nope! FGCU to limit holiday decor
Christmas is just 30 days away, but Santa Claus won't be stopping by Florida Gulf Coast University this holiday.

He's not allowed on campus.

FGCU administration has banned all holiday decorations from common spaces on campus and canceled a popular greeting card design contest, which is being replaced by an ugly sweater competition. In Griffin Hall, the university's giving tree for needy preschoolers has been transformed into a "giving garden."

The moves boil down to political correctness.

"Public institutions, including FGCU, often struggle with how best to observe the season in ways that honor and respect all traditions," President Wilson Bradshaw wrote in a memo to faculty and staff Thursday. "This is a challenging issue each year at FGCU, and 2008 is no exception. While it may appear at times that a vocal majority of opinion is the only view that is held, this is not always the case."

How's this for honoring and respecting? And these clowns are "educating" our young adults. They can't read, do math or think for themselves, but they'll be able to pontificate on how evil America and Christians are.

El Presidente Bradshaw is correct about one thing, there is a vocal majority and they are being terrorized by a minority of haters.

Obama: The Office of the President Elect

How embarrassing. Maybe The One will have a black velvet portrait done for the Oval Office to match the plastic covering on the furniture to protect the zebra cushion design. Office of the President Elect indeed. Lewinski appears to be gaining some class here.

The Ohio State University Versus Whatever From Michigan

Tom Blogical mentioned I hadn't written anything about The Game and he is right. If you have to ask what is The Game, you have the disappointing karma to not be from Ohio. Sorry, but I cannot help you with that. I was born and raised here in the great state of Ohio and, yes, I thanked God for it for many reasons, but mostly because I am a Buckeye.

People joke that a buckeye is a bitter and useless nut which is untrue. It has many uses such as stunning fish and other smelly things, but mostly it is a good-luck charm that actually works. It is no joke that a wolverine is smelly, mangy and general nuisance to all that come in contact with it, but at least a wolverine will skulk away when it comes in contact with its betters which includes all other life forms. It is said that a wolverine could attend another college except for the fact that those other colleges do not allow wolverines crayons for school work nor for snacks before their afternoon nap.

I started watching the OSU VS Michigan game before God made dirt which was when I was young. My father, a graduate of The Ohio State University and Medical School, took me to my first game before I was one year old. It is a lesson that has stayed with me ever since. A young Hop Cassidy almost single handedly beat Michigan proving a single OSU player could beat 11 Michigan players. My father proudly reported that when Michigan scored a touchdown that I filled my diapers with a stands clearing deposit. Michigan didn't score again that game and I like to think I had a small part in that victory because my Dad said I had the "poop" on Michigan from the get go.

My son, a graduate of The Ohio State University who roomed with Hawk who I witnessed eating a 2 lb London Broil by himself at my table, is on his way with a few hundred of his friends for our annual Beat Michigan Party here at the house.

This is The Game and I love it. It is also a reminder that God is always right. Why else would I get to be with my son remembering my father as we eat tons of food grilled in the cold with Buckeyes from all over the state watching the world order be reaffirmed as OSU beats Michigan?

Funniest Headline Of The Day

Minnesota: Is Franken Being Too Nice?

What, physically and verbally attacking people, lying, writing hateful porn pieces and generally being very unfunny is being too nice?

I can think of many adjectives to describe Franken, but nice, or better yet, too nice, isn't among them.

Hillary To Be SOS


I guess that seat on the Supreme Court was slipping through her fingers and so she took what she could.

To conservatives, Obama's choices are terrible for the most part, but soothing that for conservatives is the fact that the so far out left that it's in another universe is in shock as their brave new world slips through their fingers. These choices are just the same old, same old crew from DC with merely liberal agendas. The Republic may just stand. May.

Snow's A Comin'

Found on Flicker

My brother and me about 1943, 44, 45. I was in the 1st or 2 nd grade. A huge blizzard in southern Kansas (Harper County). Dad could not get to town (4 miles) for four days, then he had to use the tractor and go across pastures and fields. The drift on which I am squating is over 5 feet tall. The chicken house is the building behind the drift. Note the cool flight goggles and the flight hats. Are they great or what? Mom took this photo with an old Brownie, 620 film.

Fiscal Conservatives VS Social Conservatives?

When Are We Law Abiding/Tax Paying Citizens Going To Stand Up To the Loud Lunatic Fringe Taking Over America?
I'm sick of hearing that I as a Christian and conservative am the shame of my party who wants to ram morality down the country's throat because I oppose abortion, gay marriage and partial term abortion. Even as the name of God is eradicated from every public arena on every courthouse, in every school and every public discourse and the agenda of a woman's right to choose to abort through the 9 (!) month of pregnancy is a policy our new president supports I shrink back? No way. I'm getting angry and staying angry about this. I hope you will too.

This is what we need to do. Though it is not just the left fringe we need to fight back against.

There are those, who are mathematically challenged, amongst Republicans that believe they can win without social conservatives. Obama didn't win Ohio as much as McCain lost Ohio because those social conservatives that voted for Bush in 2004 didn't come out for McCain. The base of the Republican Party, social conservatives, didn't pull that lever. They had no reason to.

The same people that say the party needs to marginalize social conservatism, also say we need to look outside our traditional base and focus on just being fiscally conservative. Again, their math doesn't stand. How can one be fiscally conservative when one can't do the basic math of vote counting? I suppose that is why we need all those extra government bureaucrats, so they can count. They must now be doing the math the same way they did the math for the last election. McCain tried the outside our traditional base thing, but apparently it didn't work out so well. Democrats may have a base that can be bought for a few government trinkets, but no fiscal conservative could even ethically think this way and social conservatives cannot be bought. Their beliefs are their life and government is a necessary evil which should be chained and suppressed.

The math also tells us that we lost fiscal conservatives as well. Many of them are now saying they want to form third parties. We lost them because our elected republicans forgot to be Republican when they started spending like drunken bums using our money to build 'bridges to nowhere' and getting buildings named after themselves just like the Democrats they had become. Third party math is just as bad as the little 'r' republican math. Third parties are exactly what the now in power liberals want on our side. Divide and conquer.

Another cry I hear, which liberals love to gloat over, is that younger demographic groups won't vote for social conservative candidates. That is not true. They will vote for those they trust and believe in. Younger Republican or conservative voters will not vote for hypocrites nor those they feel are pandering to them. If they are not moved to support a candidate they will just stay home or, in some cases, they will react to peer pressure and vote for the opponent. Why would these voters vote for 'fiscally conservative' Republicans that are spending like power drunk liberals? They have seen the hypocricy and they shunned it the same way they'd shun a lecture on sobriety from a parent downing their 3rd martini for the evening.

So, how about we frame the argument properly. Without their base Republicans cannot win. It may be that much money comes from the 'only fiscally conservatives', but it is the socially conservative, i.e., socially responsible and active, base that not only gives money, but also knocks on doors, mans the phone banks, fills campaigns with volunteers, completes the GOTV and talks to friends and family to network for candidates. Besides, why would anyone think they are mutually distinct groups. All of the social conservatives I speak to are also fiscal conservatives, but not all fiscal conservatives are social conservatives.

The argument should be why haven't fiscal conservatives fully embraced social/fiscal conservatives to lead our nation back to prosperity and strength? Oh, and to win elections.

The base of the Republican Party is the social conservative movement, so actually it is just few party leaders trying to cover their butts for screwing up. Without social conservatives the Republican Party is just a group of country club people who will stay in the political wilderness for years.

The next four years are going to be trying times for conservatives. Especially amongst themselves. Unite and win or be divided and conquered. It is our children's future that we are abandoning or protecting. Your choice, but if you can't unite against Pelosi, Obama and Reid, you're not a conservative. You're a moron.

President Of The United States Of America, George Soros?

I wrote about Podest's Soros' group, the Center for American Progress (CAP), which seemingly rose from nothing to be a powerful player in just 5 years Here. Soros is making sure his vision of what America should look like domestically will be coordinated through his CAP.

Along comes another group with tentacles reaching down into the most horrific and anti-freedom places on earth to find friends and allies, The International Crisis Group (ICG). Yes, it is another George Soros funded group and it appears that while CAP is giving Obama direction domestically, ICG is giving direction in international matters and national security.

Obama’s One-Stop Shop for Foreign Policy Advisers
The ICG is formally based in Brussels but has offices around the world (Washington, D.C., of course, is a major office). These offices are prominent in various “hot spots” in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East since the stated mission of the group is “conflict resolution.” Indeed, the group might be considered a proto-State Department. It has a roster of foreign policy analysts who travel throughout the world, meeting with political and other leaders to try to bring about “change.”

This group also has ties to Barack Obama. One of its major donors is prominent Obama supporter George Soros, who received a “Founders Award” from the ICG. He also serves on its board and executive committee. Indeed, the ICG was founded by former UN official Mark Malloch Brown, whose involvement in the oil-for-food scandal and close ties to George Soros were controversial enough to merit editorials in the Wall Street Journal and other media outlets.

What will Biden do with all of this expertise telling Obama what to do? There are only so many funerals he can attend. This makes Joe Biden superfluous in a way even Joe hasn't been able to accomplish prior to being elected to the Vice Presidency.

It also appears that this "change" Obama is about to embark on also makes the American voter superfluous.

Who Knew Obama? Not Me. Not Thee.

The electorate chose the Cracker Jack candidate. Now let's hope the prize inside isn't a stinker.

Or just a cheap facsimile.


Prop 8 As A Prop For Victimhood

via Have Coffee Will Write

I don't read Randy Andy Sullivan and his daily dish of aging Pan endemic and the necessity of the world to bow to what he believes is inevitable. It's a little like giving a great aunt the platform of Thanksgiving dinner to once again attempt to prove that identifying criminals by secret license plates would have prevented that ghastly man from approaching her to do who knows what back when she was on the fast track to become President of the Coals To Newcastle Debate Club. It ruins the dinner.

Dissents Of the Day
So, just to help you think about this a little more clearly: Prop 8 stands for the idea that we could put on the ballot tomorrow the question of whether Catholics could marry. We could also put on the ballot the question of whether someone with HIV could vote or own property. We could put on the ballot the question of whether Mexican catholics can be discriminated against in housing or employment.

Or, perchance, preventing activists from sullying good traditions by twisting logic onto its ear to achieve what they otherwise could not.

HCWW tagged the post with:

If Proposition 8 is allowed to stand, who do they come for next?

Eternal victimhood status for all coming to your life courtesy of a persecuting society!

No Need For Reform. Enforce Immigration Law

It's simple. If you break the law entering the United States you are a criminal and should be deported.

If the government doesn't, this is the scum we end up with. What is it that people do not understand about this?

Virginia AG Credits Local, State Officials with Capturing Sex Offenders in Illegal Immigration Crackdown
Violent sex offenders who are also illegal aliens in Virginia were identified, located, and deported thanks to a well-coordinated joint operation earlier this year involving both state and federal officials.

The effort should serve as a model for immigration enforcement throughout the United States, Bob McDonnell, Virginia’s Republican attorney general, told in an exclusive interview.

“Operation Cold Play” made it possible for the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to place 171 convicted criminal alien sex offenders into deportation proceedings thanks in large part to local and state involvement in the investigation, McDonnell explained in an email.

After examining the birthplace of each offender in Virginia’s sex offender registry, state police shared the information with ICE agents, who then cross-checked the information with their own databases.

The joint effort between Virginia and ICE was part of a larger federal initiative called Operation Predator, which was launched in 2003 for the purpose of targeting child pornographers, human traffickers and smugglers.

Illegal is illegal. Period. We don't need scum like this on our streets. They should have been deported immediately.

What Is Fun Could Just Be Dangerous

I haven't really thought that much about the Obama's birth. I have had a lot of people ask me about it or they have given me the complete conspiracy theory about the Obama not being born in Hawaii, but Indonesia or the darkest heart of Africa all ending with the thought that Obama just ain't a citizen thus he was illegally elected president which means a re-vote or Jabberin' Joe Biden gets the nod or Nana Pelosi being elevated to the Oval Office. Me? I'm holding out for a re-vote.

Former Obama opponent now suing to prove President-elect's citizenship

Of course if Obama just released his real birth information then all of this silliness would just go away. On the other hand...

Soros Succeeded, Obama Is In & So Is Soros

Soros-Funded Democratic Idea Factory Becomes Obama Policy Font
Three blocks from the White House, on the 10th floor of a sleek glass building, young workers pound at computers, with giant flat-screen TVs overhead. It has the look and feel of a high-tech startup.

In many ways it is. The product is ideas.

Thanks in part to funding from benefactors such as billionaire George Soros, the Center for American Progress has become in just five years an intellectual wellspring for Democratic policy proposals, including many that are shaping the agenda of the new Obama administration.
CAP's president and founder, John Podesta, 59, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, is one of three people running the transition team for president-elect Barack Obama, 47. A squadron of CAP experts is working with them.

In addition to Podesta, at least 10 other CAP experts are advising the incoming administration, including Melody Barnes, the center's executive vice president for policy who co-chairs the agency-review working group and Cassandra Butts, the senior vice president for domestic policy, who is now a senior transition staffer.

Some of the group's recommendations already have been adopted by the president-elect:

1. withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq
2.universal health coverage
3.create "green jobs'' linked to alleviating global climate change
4.creation of a ``National Energy Council'' headed by an official with the stature of the national security adviser
5.creation of a White House ``office of social entrepreneurship'' to spur new ideas for addressing social problems.

1.Retreat in Iraq
2.Socialized health care
3.Vitalize global warming hoax to reward friends
4.Destroy domestic coal and oil industries in America now to revitalize later for political advantage
5.In an entrepreneurial style, identify new social "problems" to leverage power and later campaign victories

But will the empty trains run on time?

Taxes Are Killing US

I added two (2) rooms to my house and the county raised my property taxe 66%. When I objected, I was led to believe that a responsive government was being lenient by reducing that increase to 63% and that I should be grateful.

This project kept 3 men employed for months as well as the owner of the construction company. The electric contractor had 4 workers. The HVAC contractor had 3 men. The company that installed the plumbing and gas lines included 3 men. That's 13 people working, earning a good wage and paying taxes.

Then there were the people that worked at the lumber yard and those who delivered the trusses, joists, roofing, studs, flooring material, windows, insulation, dry wall, paint, masonry, doors, lighting and all the trim work. All of the material came from people working in industry, drivers making deliveries, lumber mills, lumberjacks, asphalt plants, gypsum companies, glass manufacturers, window and door companies, fiberglass plants, metal manufacturers, stone companies, wire mills, plastics and rubber companies and block and brick companies as well as the nails, screws, glues, door knobs, locks, hinges, light switches, thermostats, ceiling lights, pot lights, fireplace inserts and more. The number of workers involved? I'm not sure, but I know they all paid taxes as well as the corporate/business taxes their employers paid.

All of those workers bought things, such as food, dinners, goods and services for themselves from people who did the same and all paid taxes.

I pay 63% more property tax each year for improving our lives and I hope the lives of all the workers involved in my two (2) room addition to my home.

With this in mind, I came across a great article from a site I like, And You Thought YOU Were Cranky, that concerned just new taxes and doesn't have room to include all the taxes including state and local as well as county taxes, but it is a very good start:

Here's the poem about taxes...At first I thought this was funny...then I realized the awful truth of it.

Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes
Are the rule.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

Put these words
upon his tomb,
' Taxes drove me to my doom...'

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.What in the hell happened? Can you spell 'politicians????!!!!'And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?"

BIG HAT TIP to Piano Girl who shared this explanation of true charity with me.

Liberals and their lackies in the Democrat Party now want to bring us more. They say it will make America a better and more prosperous country. They're morons if they think it will work.

Pelosi Tries To Blame Big Three's Woes On Bush

Pelosi, afraid she can't pay of her union buddies, is stomping her feet and threatening to hold her breath until she turns blue if Bush doesn't hand over more cash. She can turn a deep purple for all I care.

Stalemate dims prospects for $25B auto bailout
Prospects dimmed Monday for enactment of a $25 billion bailout for the faltering auto industry before year's end, as congressional Democrats and the Bush administration seemed headed for a stalemate. Help for Detroit's Big Three, which have been battered by the economic meltdown that has choked their sales and frozen their credit, is falling victim to a partisan fight over where the money should come from.

The Big Three are victims from an economic meltdown and frozen credit? BS, the Big Three are victims of their own mismanagement and kowtowing to unions who have extorted money from them for years. Now the unions want Congress to hand out $25 B to them for benefits, not to the Big Three. Don't give a dime to either. Drain the pork trough and let capitalism free.

Since our automakers don't have the stones to meaningfully negotiate with unions, let the Big Three go through bankruptcy where the unions will have to negotiate meaningfully. It will make the auto industry stronger. Well, that and a 500 HP Mustang. Midnight blue. With twin pipes and a close ratio shifter with a truck clutch. And not one damned green thing about it.

Screw The Voters, Let Franken Rule Now!

Franken to Go to Washington to Meet Democratic Senators
Saying it's too presumptuous to go to freshman orientation, Minnesota Democratic candidate Al Franken is still gearing up for a victory in the tight Senate race against Sen. Norm Coleman.

Democrat Al Franken says he'll be in Washington, D.C., this week to meet with Democratic Senate leaders.

There's an orientation for new senators being held this week, but Franken told WCCO-TV on Sunday that it would be too presumptuous to attend the orientation with the race between him and Republican Sen. Norm Coleman still unsettled.

Coleman leads Franken by only 206 votes, and a statewide recount will be conducted starting this week to determine the winner.

Franken will meet with Senate leaders on Tuesday. Franken spokeswoman Colleen Murray says Franken has also hired a transition director so that if he comes out ahead after the recount, he will be ready to serve Minnesotans.

Al is obviously a graduate of the Reverend Jesse Jackson School of Government which makes Al even creepier.

Thanks to Tom Blogical for this clip.

Screw The Constitution, Let Obama Rule Now!

Hidden in an article is this little gem from the Reverend.

Jesse Jackson concerned about Bush's last days
"All of that talk of bipartisanship begins now," Jackson said. "And the new president deserves his vision to be implemented immediately."

Obama deserves? And exactly what is his vision? He forgot to relate that vision to us and the media wasn't exactly on the hunt for it either.

Maybe someone could explain that transfer of power thing to Jesse. He seems not to have a clear grasp of it, but then, what does he have a clear grasp of outside of grasping for power and extortion of corporations to grasp a little more.

This is getting funner all the time...

NBC Sports

Right now on NBC sports they have Keith Olbermann, who isn't right in the head, and now Mr. Obnoxiously Ignorant, Bob Costas.

Why does NBC hate their viewers so much?

The Sickness Of Some Should Worry All. Laughing At Murder

“No, it’s cool, my aunt died on the 64th floor, and it was a conspiracy anyway.”

Univ. of Arizona must be proud of students that make light of murder, terrorism and 9/11. This isn't just about two people with no heart, but about a great many that attended this Halloween party and obviously said nothing.

I truly hope that those that hate so much and feel so little, change.

A sickness that belittles our government, our president and, now, the dead with impunity is a sickness that affects us all.

I'm sure there are people that will say lighten up. I say these two disgusting creeps had to show people falling from the tower.

All who participated and saw this and did nothing are sad little people.

Sad little people.

How Scared Were Liberals Of Joe The Plumber? Ohio Dems Tried To Screw Him!

First they lie about doing the illegal searches and then they lie a spinning tail about why they did the searches. These clowns are almost, almost, making Taft look good.

Joe the Plumber case still dripping
The election is over, but the Joe the Plumber case is not.

Ohio Inspector General Tom Charles said his office is now looking at a half-dozen agencies that accessed state records on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher.

The Beacon Journal has learned that, in addition to the Department of Job and Family Services, two other state offices — the Ohio Department of Taxation and Ohio Attorney General Nancy Rogers — conducted database searches of Joe the Plumber.

Wurzelbacher became an instant celebrity after he asked Barack Obama a series of questions in his Toledo driveway about the Democrat's tax policies.

In the third debate between Obama and Republican John McCain on Oct. 15, the candidates referred to Joe the Plumber more than 20 times.

The next day, the taxation department conducted two separate searches of a database of liens for unpaid taxes that were certified to the Ohio Attorney General's Office for collection.

It appears that the millions of dollars spent by Obama didn't seem enough. Nor the millions spent by groups like ActBlue, the unions and all the other out of state groups. The fraudulent voter registrations, students from everywhere but Ohio voting, busing people into the state to bus drunks and bums to the instant registration/vote stations and having the media in the tank for their boy seemed not enough.

Joe the Plumber must've swung a heavy wrench the day he questioned Obama. He scared them to death. So much so the little creeps had to search every nook and cranny of his life to try and smear him with their buddies in the media.

Lungren Should Not Unseat Boehner

Boehner to Face Leadership Challenge
ABC News' Rick Klein Reports: A conservative California congressman announced Friday that he's mounting a leadership challenge to House Minority Leader John Boehner, as the GOP continues to assess the fallout from last week’s election losses.

Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Calif., becomes the first rank-and-file House member to announce his intent to challenge the top House Republican in next week’s leadership elections. The No. 2 and No. 3 House Republicans have said they’re stepping down from their posts, but Boehner is seeking another term as minority leader.

“I am embarking on this effort because I think our Party is in trouble,” Lungren wrote in a letter to colleagues Friday afternoon. “If we don’t admit our difficulties and address them aggressively, we not only run the risk of becoming a permanent Congressional Minority but we will do a disservice to our nation.”

John Boehner is a great example of the American dream of pulling oneself up by the bootstraps and a damned fine legislator who knows the House of Representatives well. His staff is first rate and they assist him in not only representing his district, but also to represent a rock solid conservative view to Congress. In this task, based on good thinking and solid research, Rep. Boehner is able to work with all members because they respect and trust him as a honorable man. He also has a helluva sense of humor.


Truck Stop

After Blowing Off Petreaus, Obama To Meet With Anti War Veterans As Expected

From This Ain't Hell and rather than read this, you should read Jonn Lilyeas' coverage

IVAW gets a seat at Obama’s table
When he was running to be everyone’s president, Barack Obama wouldn’t meet with General Petreaus while the general was commanding our efforts in Iraq. But now, it seems his staff will sit down with IVAW. Read the rest HERE.

While doing his sermon for the mounted in Germany, Obama blew off our wounded troops to shop and work on his abs, but he is going to have his staff meet with false soldiers.

Mr Community Organizer Goes To Washington

Over at Pajama Media they have a great article about Obama's bad start to a bad presidency and America's bad choice that will come back to bite her.

Obama’s Very Bad Start

Read the article. It is concise and intuitive.

It all boils down to don't-know.

America didn't/doesn't know Obama. In a decisive campaign of ambiguity, Obama and his main man Axlerod, worked closely with the media to make the chimera man seem full of substance. Most of America has no idea who Obama really is nor are they aware of his proposed agenda. They all think they are getting something or, better yet, they are getting something for free. Boy, are all those voters going to be bummed.

Obama just don't-know. He isn't aware how systems work. He isn't aware of how Washington works. Not a clue on how the world works. He does know that if he wishes hard enough and clicks his heels three time he will get what he wants, just like college, law school, state elections, election to the US Senate and now, the Presidency of the United States of America. He believes that he accomplished all of this. By himself. Boy, is he going to be bummed.

The leaders of the free world and the leaders of countries that wish us ill do not give a whit about the "harsh" realities a community organizer brings to the table, affirmative action nor the magic of being Obama. America may yet exclaim, Boy, we are all bummed.

Obama Bundlers Bought Positions

Less than a quarter of the $600 million Obama raised came from small donors. How many of those small donors gave way over the limit may never be known nor if they were legal citizens nor if they were members of groups and nationalities that oppose America. That's change, but not chump change.

Obama's transition team chock full of bundlers
Though they worked behind the scenes in Barack Obama's campaign for president, bundlers who raised millions of dollars for his White House bid are starting to land significant posts on his transition team.

At least nine of the volunteer fundraisers whose wide networks of colleagues, friends and relatives gave more than $1.85 million to Obama are now positioned to help the president-elect set foreign and domestic policy and identify potential Cabinet appointees.

Top bundlers won special access to top campaign strategists during the general election, and many had a special audience with the Obama in a private tent at Chicago's Grant Park after his acceptance speech. How many will ultimately wind up in his administration is unknown, but several top Obama fundraisers interviewed yesterday said that they anticipate plenty will seek appointments. Two top fundraisers, both speaking on the condition of anonymity, said they had received numerous requests from Obama donors for advice on finding administration jobs.

All along we have been told that situations such as this has poisoned American politics. We've been told this by Democrats. The same Democrats that brought us Tammany Hall so I guess they know that of which they speak.

Everybody knows that money in politics is bad. Except when you need it. Then it's good. Like promising voters that you will pay them a lot of money if only they will vote for you. It's only fair that a candidate knows people are hurting when their cars are 3 years old and there is a bigger crisper flat screen TV that they could be watching while said candidate pays for their kids college. That's the reason to vote for him, because he understands your hurt. As usual, it is not about the money. Unless you are a bundler. Then cars, flat screen TVs and college are chump change.

Obama And National Service - Bribing America's Youth

Obama has backtracked, as usual once a campaign is over, on another campaign promise. This backtrack is concerning a mandatory community service corp much like those practiced in socialist countries with cult leaders.

Now, instead of forcing his vision down the throats of mere Americans that don't like government much, the One has clearly started emphasizing the carrot versus the stick to attract the young to his vision of a 'changed' America and he's doing it Chicago style. He's going to bribe them.

Obama’s Call for Community Service Is Not Marxism
There are already many high schools in the United States which require community service credit for graduation. Some schools require seniors to complete a project that includes some form of community outreach.

If the high school where my kids went or the high school where my grand niece, who is living with us, mandated this, I'd tell them to go to hell. This is a family decision and a family's teaching and is not the purview of a bunch of unelected faceless and nameless bureaucrats doing the bidding of a cult figure. It takes away freedom in the name of "freedom" and is un-American.

On the college level, Obama’s plan would ensure a $4,000 tuition credit to students who complete 100 hours of community service a year. With the cost of college education soaring, that $4,000 is like a windfall to a college student. The student would be rewarded monetarily, but the reward of completing service toward the community is something that will stay with them, as well as the community, forever. Service to others is a lasting gift.

So then, it's now not mandatory, but it's also not community service either. It can't be community service if students are getting paid for it. It's either paid service or a bribe.

This is not socialism. This is not Marxism. This is the mark of a country that knows it needs to rely on those who can to help those who can’t. It’s the mark of a country that knows it needs to depend on its citizens to make their communities flourish. It’s taking the “ask not what your country can do for you” attitude and transforming it into smaller clusters, where we ask what we can do for those we live with and around, instead of waiting for people to do for us. It’s how communities become stronger, how they grow, and how a strong, giving community makes for a strong, giving nation.

Community service is not a dirty word; nor is it an idea to be tossed aside because you don’t like who is delivering the message about it. Encouraging our youth to take part in something selfless is encouraging them to be better human beings. What could be better for this country?

It is on the road to socialism and community service has always been a laudable quality in America, much more so than any other country in the world, but community service has now become a buzz word for leftist causes and subtle indoctrination. That the left now wants to use bribes or make community service mandatory does not make a better human being nor is it any good for this country nor will it make this country better.

Take your idea and your bribe and shove it Obama.

Anonymous "republicans" Attacking Palin: Name The Names

Day late and a dollar short.

McCain defends Palin in post-election TV interview
Former U.S. presidential candidate John McCain on Tuesday shrugged off criticism leveled at his running mate, Sarah Palin, saying he expects her "to play a big role in the future of this country."

Anonymous attacks, claims follow Palin home
Her supporters say some in McCain camp are trying to scapegoat her.

The anonymously sourced salvos are being launched in media including Newsweek, Fox News and The New York Times. The claims include that Palin didn't know Africa is a continent, went on shopping sprees on the Republican Party's dime, and threw tantrums that left staff in tears. Palin supporters said it's just people trying to scapegoat the governor for the unsuccessful presidential campaign.

Let's get the names of these "republican" losers attacking another Republican and publish them. Put up their pictures with the names. Name who is paying them, both openly and covertly. It's time for Republicans to quit acting like the opposition with all this skulldugery and back stabbing.

We have the ideas and the base of people are with Republicans as long as they don't act like liberals. Why vote Democrat-Lite when you can vote straight up for deception, corruption, lying and a total lack of support for family, faith, Constitutional law and the average person by voting Democrat/Liberal/Progressive?

Name the names.

Wales: Beaumaris Castle

Beaumaris Castle was built in Beaumaris, on the island of Anglesey, begining in 1295 for King Edward I by Master James of St George however it was never finished. The castle was the last of several castles built in the area designed to defend the royal home. Its design is of the double wall concept where the outer walls house an inside building which is effectively a very defendable castle unto it’s own. With 14 layers of defense Beaumaris Castle is considered near perfect.

Interesting fact: A “Gate-next-sea” protected a tidal dock that allowed ships to dock with the castle for re-supply.

The Pierce-Klingle House

The Pierce-Klingle House, or Klingle Mansion, is situated on Williamsburg Lane above the west bank of Rock Creek less than half a mile below Pierce Mill. Joshua Pierce, a son of the mill builder, built the house in 1823 and enlarged it by an addition on the west side 20 years later. The Pennsylvania Dutch-style structure is of blue and gray granite and encloses 10 rooms within its three stories. A two-story stone and wood frame barn stands to the east, and a utility house and potting shed flank the rear.

Queers Being Queer: Another Gender Bender Embarrassment For Obama

Queers show their power to disrupt a peaceful church service. An outstanding display of their self-believed power to quash the belief of others. Also an outstanding example of their inability to be part of grown up discussion.

Bash Back! Raises Hell at Anti-Queer Mega-Church
The Mount Hope Church is a deplorable, anti-queer mega-church in Lansing, Michigan. The church works to institutionalize transphobia and homophobia through several repulsive projects including organized "ex-gay" conferences and so-called "hell houses", which depict queers, trannies and womyn who seek abortions in hell. Mt. Hope is complicit in the repression of queers in Michigan and beyond.

Bash Back! ain't down with that. And so on Sunday November 9th, about thirty radical queers from Lansing, Chicago, Memphis and Milwaukee disrupted the church's most well-attended sermon.

At noon, a small group of folks dressed in pink and black, equipped with a megaphone, black flags, picket signs and an upside-down pink cross began demonstrating outside the church. The group was extremely loud and wildly offensive.

The demonstration drew a majority of Mount Hope's security staff outside to watch them.

Meanwhile, with the guards pre-occupied by the distraction, over a dozen queers had put on their Sunday-best and infiltrated the church's congregation. At the signal that the guards had been lured outside, the infiltrators sprung into action.

A group stood up, declared themselves fags, and began screaming loudly. Upon hearing the loud interruption, other affinity groups went into action. A team that had been hiding under the pews in the closed-off balcony dropped a banner and pulled back the curtains to reveal "IT'S OKAY TO BE GAY! BASH BACK!". Another group threw over a thousand fliers to the entirety of the congregation. The fire alarm was pulled. Queers began making out in front of the pastor. And within a matter of minutes, everyone had evaded the guards and made their escapes.

Bash Back! operatives, still hidden among the congregation observed a person screaming that Satan had come to Mount Hope, that the end was here, that the queers were everywhere. She then began speaking tongues. The dumbfounded pastor, after regaining his composure, went on to speak of the of decadent, depraved wolves that menace his flock of sheep.

Let it be known: So long as bigots kill us in the streets, this pack of wolves will continue to BASH BACK!

We are everywhere.

"We are everywhere". So is disease.

Liberal Sensitivity & Caring Fights "Christo-Fascist"

One boy's gay is another boy's nigger I guess. After the just finished campaign where liberals purposely were as offensive as possible (it's their right you know)we now find just how deeply they uphold the rights of others to hold their own beliefs. Except, you know, if they don't agree. Then your beliefs suck and should be battered down publicly with hate crimes.

I love that liberals had to clarify and codify personal beliefs as hate crimes. Am I allowed to say that it has come full circle to bite them in the butt? Screw the pooch? Nah, never mind.

The N-bomb is dropped on black passersby at Prop 8 protests
"It was like being at a klan rally except the klansmen were wearing Abercrombie polos and Birkenstocks. YOU NIGGER, one man shouted at men. If your people want to call me a FAGGOT, I will call you a nigger. Someone else said same thing to me on the next block near the and my friend were walking, he is also gay but Korean, and a young WeHo clone said after last night the niggers better not come to West Hollywood if they knew what was BEST for them."

Watching queens fight is fun. They get so royally po'd and scratch people with their tiaras and bitchy words.

Paul McCartney: Another Celebrity Embarrassment For Obama

How do they say, shut up and sing.

McCartney: "Thank You America For Voting In Mr Obama"
Ex Beatle Sir Paul McCartney was given a special gong at the MTV Europe Music Awards Thursday in his home city of Liverpool -- and used the event to hail US president-elect Barack Obama.

McCartney was presented with the Ultimate Legend Award, created especially for him, by U2 frontman Bono, who compared him to the pope and described his work as "immortal".

Accepting the honour, McCartney thanked fellow Beatles John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, adding: "Many years ago, there were four little boys born here in Liverpool and we went on to do quite well.

"Thanks to all my family, to all you for coming along, to everyone in Great Britain, to everyone in America for voting in Mr Obama."

I was going to say he doesn't have a leg to stand on, but then I remembered reading that he's now divorced.

The First Salvo For An Obama Nationalized Health Care

UAW chief urges $25B in U.S. auto health care support...

Some Blacks Not Getting Obama Victory

After the way the just ended campaign was shaped and conducted this was way too predictable.

Chicago: Arrests at Obama Victory Rally, Woman Yells "White [expletive], [expletive] McCain--you White Police Can't do Nothing Anymore"...Then Proceeds to Slap a White Cop.....
Celita Hart, 19, stood silently in court today when she appeared for a bond hearing.

Prosecutors said Hart, who is black, yelled " 'White [expletive], [expletive] McCain--you white police can't do nothing anymore.'" With that, she reached through the window of a squad car and slapped a white male officer in the face,according to Assistant State's Atty. Lorraine Scaduto.

The incident occurred after police responded to a crowd of people celebrating Obama's win on the corner of 69th Street and Western Avenue. Hart, of the 7100 block of South Rockwell Street, was charged with aggravated battery of a police officer and was ordered her held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Others were arrested for popping off some victory gunshots to celebrate Obama's victory. This type of thinking is sad.

Palin's To Blame

At least that is what some bright and smarmy "republican" insiders are saying about the McCain defeat. I have tremendous respect for John McCain. We disagree on many points, but it doesn't diminish the respect I have for him. I respect Sarah Palin tremendously.

I have no respect for these "republican" insiders. Zip. Nada, Zero. They are a virus.

I say let's find out who they are and name them. Put up their photographs. Put a name and a face to their slanderous musings. That way, real Republicans can shun them and make them unemployable.

We do not need them and we should give them the opportunity to find employment elsewhere in a position reflecting their expertise. Say, as a horse crap shoveler.

Craig Shirley, who I am honored to have as a friend, wrote what I think is the finest and best written book on President Ronald Reagan, Reagan's Revolution: The Untold Story of the Campaign That Started It All (buy it because you'll learn more about Reagan and politics than you will anywhere else).

Craig also has a fine article concerning the "republicans" who are trying to slander Palin so they can obtain cheap tickets to an Obama inauguration party where they can hob nob with the new socialist DC elite.

Sarah Palin's Fresh Hell
But I would rather speak today of Governor Palin and the cut and run crowd of the Republican Party.

I think it is not a coincidence that many hail from New York City, as it seems they have channeled the "Lost Generation," moaning, whining, bewailing the fact that Sarah Palin is not.... one of them.

You can see them, these Manhattanite Republicans, sitting in the Blue Room of the Algonquin Hotel, crying into their arugula salads as liveried waiters bring them more designer water and ask if they would like more freshly ground pepper. A generation ago, the same elitists bewailed "that actor" taking over the Republican Party.

None of them thought as highly of Reagan then as they profess to now.

Few have ever gotten their hands dirty running a campaign and some like David Brooks are in need of an ideological booster seat.

Name the slimes. Maybe then they will be true to their devious lying self-aggrandizing hearts and work with the new administration.

Disliking Obama's Victory: Whining or Anger?

On another blog a writer stated that we conservatives are racists because we are unhappy that Barack Obama was elected to the Presidency and that he is tempted to laugh at our “meltdown.” He went on to graciously deign to extend his hand for us to join him in his “post-partisan” world lest he leaves us behind.

He doesn’t get what America is. Here in this country our strength is derived from partisan debate, compromise when necessary and elections made up of programs derived from that partisanship. It is not some clean and neat, nee sterile, process of cold logic put forth by the Devine. If it were, ours would be called a monarchy.

Ours is a passionate political involvement in what people believe is right. People, being people, bring that messiness that marks ardor to debate, negotiation and compromise. Maybe he hasn’t watched C-SPAN. He most assuredly has not been in the galleries of Congress nor the committee hearings or the negotiations that take place on the Floor, in the Cloakroom or in the offices housing the representatives of our Republic.

Let me be clear, political compromise is not the compromising of one’s beliefs. Negotiation must be from a platform of those belief’s. It is only through belief that one can politically compromise in the give and take of the constantly flowing legislation of our representative government.

Obama’s election was not a huge mandate for a new liberalism. As in 2006, this election was a failure of ideas and the betrayal of the ideals that elected most Republicans. Those Republicans had become your center-left and were, rightly or wrongly, repudiated by their base.

You show your bias when you refer to the death of Christo-fascism, NeoCon thinking and center-right governance because you think “hope” won over “fear” and your desire that we “discontinue stuff like personal attacks and insane fear mongering.” I’ll leave fascism on the left where it resides, but as a Christo NeoCon far right American I trust that in your new world you believe you won’t have to refer to our candidates as grade-B movie actors, McChimpHitlers, c*nts, and senile McBushs because your “devine” will make us non-players. Right?

Since you carefully read my post, you read that I referred to President Obama as our president and then as my president. So as your graciously gave another blogger your “benefit of the doubt” when he pointed out he had congratulated Obama on his victory, you will magnanimously give me your “benefit of the doubt.”

If you do so, I will tell you where you can stuff your smug “benefit of the doubt”, because we aren’t whining, we’re angry. We are angry at what was done to us and what we allowed us to do to ourselves. Instead of whining about stolen elections and the stupid
Blue state people, I for one, have already made contacts and am joining ranks with like minded partisans to right this wrong, first in the midterm elections and then in the next presidential election. This time though, the beltway geniuses will not guide our way, we will build from the base up and stand on principle, our beliefs.

As to your new world of liberalism and non-partisanship, enjoy it for a month or so because we are already coming back. That, my friend, is the American way and it doesn’t need a new world of leftism nor non-partisan lockstep nor a party that dwells so completely on race that they are blinded to their own viral racism against those with which they disagree.

Ta Ta. See you in two.

UPDATE: Tom Blogical of Blogical Conclusions has a direct hit.

Obama Is Our President

And he will oversee the loss of the greatness of America. Our enemies within our country and those outside will begin to chip away at us both politically and physically and an Obama Administration will have to accept it in the name of change, implied to mean for the better, and in the name of 'fairness' as they ascertain it in this, their new world order.

A man with little qualifications and a political agenda so repugnant as to be un-American is now President of the United States of America. The voters of our country threw a hissey fit today and it will haunt not just us, but the world for untold years.

Just as America freed 30 plus million people in Afghanistan and Iraq and were poised to bring freedom to more of the world, voters here in America threw that away. Our enemies are watching and laughing. They were defeated in battle as well as in the world of ideas and ideals, but tonight have won in the world of politics here in America.

They did not win alone. Republicans, and especially those that call themselves conservative, have beat on President Bush and other Republicans constantly through this campaign. They refused to step forward and become a positive part of the process even though they stated they knew the consequences. Unfortunately, we will have to live with what they have wrought which is nothing more than a selfish act befitting a child. They have accomplished nothing for the conservative movement, but they have accomplished what liberals could not since the election of James Earl Carter.

I am disappointed in the American people, but I am ashamed of the 'conservative' voter. They have betrayed that which they say they hold sacred, America.

Barack Hussein Obama is now my president. Our nation's voters, greedy for more entitlements and other hand outs, have not only made the White House socialist, but have made our Congress more liberal to support his socialism.

As a supporter of my new president I must say it is a sad day for America.

FOX Calls Ohio For Obama.

I don't believe it.

Exit Polls Go Huge For Obama

And if you believe them you are hugely dumb.

Of course, exit polls gave Kerry supporters all the proof they needed to go all troofer on the electoral system.

If Obama goes down expect "the election was stolen. Again!" crowd to grow their cottage industry into more than just a few "experts", comic books and Code Pink orgasmic calls for a coup d’├ętat.

Exit polls started as an issue tool to attempt to take the temperature of voters. Questions such as, "How important was the abortion issue in your vote?", became a 'poll' of who is winning an election.

Exit polls suck as a campaign tool or as a tool for the media. That they are ridiculously inaccurate will not stop some people from treating them as gospel.

Why This Election Makes No Sense To The Average Voter: Headlines

A sampling of headlines from Drudge show an electorate made up of people actually electing candidates, but hounded by a media completely out of control, special interest groups that do not have America's best interest at heart, politicians pandering and posturing for the next Congress, citizens expecting the second coming if not at least to be supported by the government and system bureaucrats that fooling with our electoral system to their own ends.

That we have a system that works may be truly the most amazing story of all. That we have a group of liberals, socialists and a government bureaucracy buying votes is not the main story, but it should be.

Kenya Votes For Obama Before Dixville Notch

Obama family in Kenya slaughters bulls, sheep, goats and chickens at 'victory party'...

There's only thing to take to a Kenyan election victory feast: a goat. Preferably still breathing - “a sign of freshness“ - and with big testicles, apparently the sign of quality breeding.

And so it was that I found myself bouncing along a dirt track towards the ancestral home of the Obamas in a saloon car with the sound of John the goat bleating miserably from the boot.

It's not known whether Cupcake Couric and Brian 'eyebrows' Williams in New York were able to report on anything else in between ritualistic dancing and testicle weighing and measuring. Dead chickens and a crock of bull were seen piled in a conference room where reporters stated they were just reporting on the will of the godspeople.

Out of State College Students Overheard At An Ohio Voting Poll

All over Ohio college students are voting for president, federal offices, state issues and making local decisions. Democrats love this because they believe these students will tip the state to Obama. These same people will argue it is the student's right and that their vote is the same as it would be in the state in which they should legally vote in, thus no big deal.

Students voting outside the precinct they call home, where their home is, is wrong. Our will concerning local issues and elections of local officials will be thwarted.

This morning, standing in a line long enough to be normally seen after work, I had the pleasure of over hearing 3 students from the local university talking about the election.

They obviously came from prosperous families. Two of them didn't have a clue. They also came from eastern states and thought Ohio a state of the second class.

The third student was obviously was an activist and was instructing the other two how to vote. On one statewide issue, he wasn't sure of the number, he was telling the other two that the issue wasn't about private property (that's a "b*llsh*t argument), it was about the environment and they vote against "some *ssh*le" who thinks he "owns our water".

The conversation went on and on as we waited to vote. People in line, other than me started getting upset, not only about the language being used (we were in a church), but also at the coercion and ignorance being used to produce a desired result.

One student then went on to say that they weren't sure about his situation and would decide once she got in the voting booth. The more active of the three pointed out that "they" would know because, "think about it", students make up more than 30% of the people voting here and "they'll know".

Upon signing in, all three produced a letter on university letterhead stating who they were and their right to vote and one-by-one all three produced out of state identification.

Soon, they'll go home for Thanksgiving Holiday, leaving us with their votes. In a year or so they will leave our state, never to return, and will hope their children will, unlike them, get into a "good" school.

Back east.

My Prediction

McCain or Obama?

My gut tells me McCain, but is that hope or based on facts? After 30 years in politics, I don't know this year.

I do have some predictions though.

If McCain wins, Dems will whine;

The election was stolen
America is racist
"I'm moving to Canada (poor Canada)
Diebold fixed it
Rove was really working for McCain
[enter state] officials told me that blacks were prevented from voting
The exit polls prove that the election was stolen
Red America, flyover country, is too dumb to be allowed the vote
Republican bastards gave away free teeth for every McCain vote
Hispanics were told the wrong [enter day, place or time] to vote

Gitche Gumee Dead May Win Ohio For Obama

Hey Brunner, how's that whole electoral integrity thing working out for you? It ain't for us, but then you couldn't care less could you.

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
When the skies of November turn gloomy.

The lake never gives up her dead except when Democrats need votes and then Gitche Gumee gets damn near empty from Toledo to Cleveland.

Dead Voters Submit Ballots From Beyond.

"Now, on the eve of an historic election -- when every vote in Cuyahoga County is considered crucial -- our NewsChannel5 investigation has once again uncovered thousands of dead voters still on the rolls, and ballots still being cast from beyond. The exact number of dead voters is difficult to say this time because Ohio's Secretary of State issued a directive to Boards of Elections across the state to withhold dates of births in public records requests. That information is important in positively identifying dead voters."

On the bright side, this may be our last chance to find out where Jimmy Hoffa is if he 'remembers' to vote.

Ohio Ballot Measures - How To Vote

My voting on issues is pretty simple. If it costs money - NO, if it increases the power of the government(s) - NO, and if it takes away power from individuals and business - NO.

Issue 1 - No
Will be expensive and makes it more difficult for citizens to exercise their power.

Issue 2 - No
Ohio needs bond money for more important projects. Besides, isn't all of Ohio parkland yet?

Issue 3 - Yes
If it touches my land, I should get to use it, private property being a cornerstone of America.

Issue 5 - No
Keep government out of business. They screw up everything, like, government.

Issue 6 - No
This whole issue stinks.

Obama Will Put Workers In Coal On The Dole, Just Like His Auntie

Coal official calls Obama comments 'unbelievable'
"I was the first to call for a 100 percent auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter," Obama continued. "That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year."

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted."

Calls and e-mails to West Virginia Obama campaign officials seeking comment for this story were not returned as of Sunday evening.

Coal Jobs in the U.S.
174,000 coal jobs directly related to the production of coal.
100,000 + unrelated jobs supported by the coal industry.

Lost wages, lost jobs and lost taxes.

In the state of West Virginia alone $3.5 Billion is added to the gross state product.

How many truckers, train workers, restaurant workers, convienient store employees, grocery store staff, gasoline related employees and more from many other industries will lose their jobs?

Obama is a little boy playing at a man's job.

Obama Will Bankrupt Coal Miners & Their Industry

Coalminers, plant workers, drivers, machine operators, tool makers, processors, truckers, suppliers, and all of the support personnel that work for truck stops, diners, operate trains and on and on, no matter, they can be sacrificed on the altar of the liberal ideology. They are all acceptable loses for the global warming hoax.

Hidden Audio: Obama Tells SF Chronicle He Will Bankrupt Coal Industry

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else's out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.

That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.

The only thing I've said with respect to coal, I haven't been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a (sic) ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.

It's just that it will bankrupt them.

Go listen to the audio HERE

Of course, the SF Chronicle won't report this nor will others in the main stream media because they are in the tank for Obama. They have made themselves tools for Obama.

UPDATE: Hot Air on another part of Obama's "energy policy":

Obama: I’ll make energy prices “skyrocket”

The problem is not technical, uh, and the problem is not mastery of the legislative intricacies of Washington. The problem is, uh, can you get the American people to say, “This is really important,” and force their representatives to do the right thing? That requires mobilizing a citizenry. That requires them understanding what is at stake. Uh, and climate change is a great example.

You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.

They — you — you can already see what the arguments will be during the general election. People will say, “Ah, Obama and Al Gore, these folks, they’re going to destroy the economy, this is going to cost us eight trillion dollars,” or whatever their number is. Um, if you can’t persuade the American people that yes, there is going to be some increase in electricity rates on the front end, but that over the long term, because of combinations of more efficient energy usage, changing lightbulbs and more efficient appliance, but also technology improving how we can produce clean energy, the economy would benefit.

If we can’t make that argument persuasively enough, you — you, uh, can be Lyndon Johnson, you can be the master of Washington. You’re not going to get that done.

If Obama does win, if, he will make Carter look like a good president. This idea was previously thought impossible, but Obama will get that done. He may even make Clinton look ethical.
