Lying sack of S*#$
The NRA has endorsed McCain and there is no way they would back a gun grabber like this one. . . .
He will do anything to get to the Whitehoues, lie, steal, cheat, voter fraud, fake birth certificate, you name it.
On election day he must be stopped!

Should I turn off Anonymous Comments?
I got some butt head comments on the last few posts. Now if the idiot had read the blog and comments it would have quickly seen that I publish comments that don't agree with me. It is all about a discussion after all.
I am a bit torn though, I know that blogs get trolls, and I have been lucky so far but they piss me off. If you want to say something have the guts to sign your name or don't say it.
I am not really sure what to do. I think I will leave them enabled for now and just delete comments that don't add to the discussion but I am not sure. Maybe I just need to see how often I get the trolls and deal with them case by case. . . .
What do you do on your blogs for this stuff???
I would like to thank the IDIOT that can not shoot for somehow shooting out of line with the HUGE backstops and hitting a house a quarter mile away with his 9mm. The range is now shut down for who knows how long while they look into it.
This is ridicules. I have shot here for years and this is a good range with very high backstops and baffles on the range at the firing line so you can’t shoot over the backstop. You would have to really work at it to miss the backstop, or be so untrained with your gun that you fired it during the recoil.
WTF folks? You took a training class to join the range. You are supposed to be an adult and know what you are doing. . . And because you didn’t, now we all have to pay the price.
Add to this that it happens right after the instructor (and I use the term loosely) had some issue with an Uzi at the Machine Gun Shoot in western MA and a kid was killed. They will be all over this and the Scituate range will be closed for who knows how long.
Everyone I have met at the Scituate range has been professional, responsible, and always safety minded. I don’t get how this could happen. Once again we are seeing how personal responsibility is lacking and we all pay for it. The news story can be found HERE.
If you don’t know how to use a gun, or your new gun, be an adult and get some training, don’t just go down to the local club and start shooting. Someone could get hurt or killed. Luckily we are only shut down and no one was hurt. IF this fool had actually shot someone you can bet they would be trying to shut down ranges all over the state. THINK before you do things will ya folks?
Of course if most folks would think we would not be dealing with Barak Obama now would we. . . . Lets not give them a reason to shut down our ranges, they will be trying hard enough to do that without our help. . . .

Remember, lie early and often, keep telling it to the people and eventually they will believe it. . . Put it on TV and they really believe it. . .
Guess it will be a DVD night at my place . . . .
I hate it. It gets depressing to know that you should know how to do something, have practiced it but you still mess up.
Well, this too will pass but I can’t wait for it to be over. I am looking forward to getting my brown belt at some point, who knows when but I will get there. This is the hardest part of Karate, sticking with it when you feel like you just can’t get it. . . .
In a nutshell Campbell Brown is actually bringing attention to the fact that Obama has lied in this election and it helped him. She talks about how he is buying the election with outspending McCain because he did not go for the public funding like McCain did once he realized how much money he could bring in.
He lied on this one and many other things. I am amazed the news is reporting it at all, but even at this late date it is nice to see some of the facts on Obama finally getting out. I pray it is not too late for folks to react to them and put McCain in the White House. . .

From Cryptic Subterranean:
WND has learned that Hawaii's Gov. Linda Lingle has placed the candidate's birth certificate under seal and instructed the state's Department of Health to make sure no one in the press obtains access to the original document under any circumstances.
The source also refused to answer WND's question whether the original document on file with the Department of Health was a hospital-generated birth certificate or a registration of birth that may have been filed subsequent to the birth.
That is some weird stuff to do to a public record with nothing to hide. Is Obama that set on fragmenting this country over his election?
Maybe he is?
Now as a cat person I would say that look translates into " you have to sleep sooner or later . . . then you are MINE"
More photos here
Is it just me or do the dogs seem to not care as much as the cats about getting dressed up by their humans. . .
Now he says you are rich over $200K a year
Joe Biden is saying $150K per year. . .
All in about a month. . . .
at this rate I will be rich by the time the new President is put into office. . . I hope it is McCain, I can't afford the taxes Obama will hit me with. . . I have kids to feed. . .
So before you vote, remember, if you work for a living you will be rich to so Obama can tax your pay for his welfare friends. . ..
Wealth Re-distribution. . . . what it is all about. . .
Problem is it is not take from the rich to give to the poor, it is take from the employed and give to the lazy. . .
Can't wait for Lord Obama to get in. We will have to start a pool for how long it will take till we have a total social melt down and blood in the streets thanks to him. . . . Remember race baiting is fun and civil wars create jobs or something like that right Obama?
Or maybe a good world war will do, it worked in the 40's to pull us out of that depression. . . .
Folks, your town normally gets back about $0.40 for each buck the state takes in income tax. Even if the town raised the property tax to get this money back from you you would still be ahead by about $0.60 per dollar.
And to top it off the money would be spent at the town level where you can go down to the town meeting and have a say in how it is spent. Money is spent much wiser when you can watch what they spend it on. . . .
Vote YES on 1 and take back control of the spending and save yourself some cash too. . .
I was going to post about this but Jay G has beat me to it with a great post, go read HERE
He covers it all and discusses how the politicians here in MA can't wait for the body to cool before they jump on new gun laws to prevent another accident. . . By the way, as Jay asks, how many kids are killed by machine guns in MA recently? How about EVER?. . .
Lets not over react folks. . . .

Why we need to shrink the government and get it out of as much as possible. . . .
My wife has an ingrown toe nail or such that is making it very hard for her to get around, any pressure on it causes extreme pain. She went to see the doctor and they look at it and say “nope, can’t help you need a podiatrist. . .” That is not so bad except the podiatrist won’t see her for over a week. . .
This is why the ERs are full folks (no we did not go to the ER). You go to your doctor and they send you to someone else, then they put you off more and more until you give up and go sit in an ER because you can’t deal with it any more. This could be fixed in the office, but they won’t see her. You would think they will do more to filter who is in pain and get them in at least for a quick look to make sure that if they can’t fix it right away at least it can wait until they can. . .
And this is the good system. Should the FED get involved in this the wait will go up, and quality will go down. . . .
Something to think about if you think things are slow now. . . ..
My Father in Law got me a small splitter for my birthday this year and it is too bad he is not around to see it working. . . I think he would have been thrilled to come over and just watch the thing work or run the thing while I fed it wood. . . anyway, it has saved my back already this weekend and I expect it will get more use next weekend at this rate.
I am lucky I can heat a good chunk of my house with the fireplace. I don't know what we would be doing on the cost of oil with out the help of the wood fire. I am hoping the price stays down but these days who knows. . . .
What I see is this from American Thinker:
For a married family, filing jointly and earning $75,000 a year, this increase will be $3,074. For those making just $50,000, this increase will be $1,512. Despite Senator Obama's claim, even struggling American families making just $25,000 a year will see a tax increase -- they'll pay $715 more in 2010 than they did in 2007. Across the board, when the tax cuts lapse, working Americans will see significant increases in their taxes, even if their household income is as low as $25,000. See the tables at the end of this article.
Call it what you want Obama, but in the real world if I pay more in taxes that is a tax increase. . .
Remember the warning if you vote for Obama. . . when your taxes go up you only have yourself to blame.
At least Palins cloths can be donated to charitey or auctioned off when all is done to get the money back. . . as for Michell? Well, she may as well just come out and say it " let them eat cake"
He goes on to talk about how folks don’t like being the ones who’s wealth is redistricted but like being on the receiving end. . .
That is probably the biggest problem with our country today. We have gone from a society that was ashamed to get a hand out, but quick to help people to a society where we expect to be given everything. . . . a welfare state. . . any wonder the folks with the money don’t want to part with it any more? It is one thing to donate what you can to help people, it is totally different to have the government take what they want from you and do it. And I don't mind helping folks get back on their feet, but I don't want to pay them to sit at home when they could be out working a real job. . . .
I am waiting in fear of the next election. I can easily see Obama getting in with a Dem Congress and the lack of any checks on his actions. . . this will lead to more taxes, a deeper recession, and who knows what. Any election that can drive up gun sales the way this one is should force any intelligent person to stop and say “what is going on? Why the fear over this?” I can also see it leading to me having to find all sorts of new ways to make ends meet like getting a second job, giving up on any spending other than home and food and my wife having to find some sort of work around caring for our three kids. That means no more hobby money, no more eating out, no more buying anything I don’t need to live right now. . . . .
You know what, if everyone has to do the same thing this recession will just get worse. Folks will start loosing jobs if people have no money to spend beyond the mortgage and feeding the family. Many people make a living off our “disposable” incomes and when that money is gone so are the jobs. . .
Folks, we need to wake up and really think about what voting for higher taxes and socialism under Obama will do. We need to make sure he does not get a blank check, we need more Republicans in Congress to offset Obama and his programs. We will be loosing free speech (any anti-Obama speech is racist you know, the media says), and we will have started down the slope of Socialism that is now destroying
Seems Joe did not like getting asked real questions folks need answers for so the Obama gang canceled all further interviews with the station, and Biden gave the interview grief instead of answering the questions. . .
What is wrong with them that they are scared to answer fare questions by this reporter? They can't handle a reporter that is not on their pay roll? Reporters are supposed to ask questions, and good, hard ones to see what your answer is. I guess the answer is "no more interviews for you, you ask wrong questions".
This is America, not the USSR, you don't get to pick the questions the news asks Obama, not yet anyway. I am sure you will fix that if elected right??
Think about what they are hiding before you vote for them. . . .
They think this is OK based on free speech and all that stuff (which it is)
What shocks me is can you imagine the outrage if they had a dummy dressed as Obama being hung? the NAACP would be all over it along with the news folks and the left screaming racism. . .
More examples of the double standard.
Of course this is fine, as is stealing and burning the McCain signs and all the other stuff the left is doing like voter fraud, threats to radio stations that question Obama on ACORN or some Obama comments, threat to anyone that says something Obama clames are untrue. . . . As long as you attack the right you are ok, no one will look into it.
They claim if we have no income tax your property tax will go up – it can’t go up by more than the 2.5% it normally does without you passing an override vote.
Why would you vote NO on 1? Vote Yes on 1 to end the income tax.
Look at it this way, even if you turn around and spend the money on an increase in your property tax at least the money would be staying in your town. I doubt the state gives my town near what it takes from us in property taxes. I would rather have a higher property tax that I can go to the town meeting and have input into how it is spent than just give it to the state where they can “spread the wealth”. . . .
YES ON ONE!

What is wrong with the left that they can't even let the other side have a yard sign without stealing it, destroying it or even burning it in some places?
Do you realized how F'd up Obama really is so this is the only way you think you can win?
Do you fear the truth about Obama getting out to the average American that much?
Hey, anything to suppress the vote right guys? just like how you are getting the ballots of the active military folks tossed in a number of states too right - we all know who they will vote for so we don't want them counted do we. . . .
I don't see or hear about the right stooping to this, I am sure THAT would make the news as a racist attack . . . . .
Hey, who greased the slope?

More HERE on it
Got help this country with the Dems in charge. I think we may live to see it's fall
the polls show only 20% of the folks support this (not that I trust the polls any more) but this is bad. This state is full of corruption and hacks on the payroll and most folks are OK with this?
This state is really looking lost to me. I am looking forward to the day I can leave this state and go live in free America (if it survives Obama). . . .
The USA is really on its way down. . . I guess even Rome fell so we had to eventually. . .
Why don’t you ever hear about Republicans pulling this crap? Do we really want someone with thugs like this backing him to be in the White House??
More info to come on this one. . . .
Update. . . . Looks like this is confirmed, more info HERE
Update . . . . Not so fast, do not pass go do not get $200. go to jail. . .
The teacher yelled WHY? at her and there were other comments made that have upset this child.
This is shocking to me. It is one thing to discuss the election in school as a teaching event, but the teacher must leave out any favoritism for one side or the other. If they can’t do that then they should not be teaching.
There have been other reports of kids being attacked, or ridiculed for backing McCain. This shows how far our schools have drifted from a place of learning the FACTS to a way for the left to try to influence our kids and our country.
Maybe it is time to take a good look at who is teaching our kids and what. Of course if Obama wins then all bets are off and the schools will become “re-Education Centers” to help the rest of us understand why we are not worthy of Lord Obama’s leadership etc. . .
Guess this is why we need to talk to our kids about what they did in school today to make sure the programming does not take. . . . Teach your kid what American and the Constitution really are. . .
He has been dragged into court by the Feds over this. . .
The hot topic on my 9am-noon talk show here in Boston today was word that our Secretary of State, Bill Galvin, has been ignoring federal law designed to protect the voting rights of uniformed military personnel deployed to Iraq and elsewhere.
As I pointed out in a previous blog, Secretary Galvin acknowledged in the consent decree with the feds that he hasn't been tracking ballots to our soldiers and marines as required. How many Massachusetts military members asked for ballots and didn't get them? How many sent ballots that arrived too late, or were disqualified on a technicality?
We don't know because, unlike in most other states, the election official responsible for finding out--Bill Galvin--disregarded federal law. Not to mention our troops.
Seems WA and a few other states are being dragged into court on this too. . . it is possible that if this is not cleared up a few states will be forced to pull his name off the ballot . . .
Hillary may still have a shot . . . if he is found as a fraud, the DNC can replace him with their pick. . ..
Very interesting and another reasion this election will be contested no matter who wins. . .
The radio is now telling us that the Democrats have gone to court to STOP the search for the birth certificate before the election. . . . If he has one why stop the search? Why not just hand it over and end this now before it can be used against him???
WHAT IS HE HIDING? It is starting to look like his is illegal as far as POTUS goes, he can't be it because he was not BORN American by law. . . .
Say HI to your new President Hillary. . .
I asked, "well what is going to happen to those people we can't reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" and the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated.And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill."Twenty-five million people.I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.And they were dead serious.
If you back McCain, don't give up for anything, get out there and VOTE, if nothing else we will let Obama know he did not fool everyone with his crap. . .
Between the voter fraud and lack of real info about Obama not to mention the main stream media selling him every chance they can he has a great chance to win, as close to a sure thing as you can get in this kind of thing. . . .
Problem is we have seen this before and the guy lost when the real vote was counted. . . If McCain can actually pull off a win it will be a mess in the cities. . . Of course no matter who wins the election will be questioned thanks to ACORN and the voter fraud. Whoever wins the other side will claim it was rigged. . . .
On the bright side, since a good chunk of the Obama voters don't really exist (except in the mind of ACORN) then maybe the riots won't be as bad as we think as imaginary folks can vote but they don't riot well. . . . sort of like the Million Man March that was no where near a million men they claim. . . .
Thanks Ted, but I am ahead of you (at least a bit)
Cowboy Shoots for those who don’t know about them are a shooting sport where you shoot steel plates (and an occasional skeet clay) with old west style guns. You need two six shooters, a rifle in a pistol caliber, and a shotgun which are all time period appropriate to participate. That means single action revolvers and only a few types of shotguns and rifles fit the bill. . . You do a number of stages over a day (six for the two I have watched) and each stage is a set of targets (plates) you need to shoot in a set order. Normally it is something like 10 shots with the revolvers, 10 shots from the rifle, and 2 or 4 shots from the shotgun.
I am currently saving up to get me the six shooters and shotgun I will need to do this. With a bit of luck (ok, in this economy with a lot of luck) I may have the cash for these new shoot'n irons next summer.
I also have a friend from my Karate school who is pushing me to get into it so he has someone to go to the shoots with and that is helping to keep me motivated to get into this. They also do a few each year at my club so I won't have to travel far to do this unless I really get into it. . .
The down side is here in MA we have a very limited supply of guns we can get to do this. You see our Attorney General has a list of the “safe” guns he will let us buy. There are only a few (really only one, the Vaquero) that we can get. I guess they think the gang bangers use old west guns for too many drive bys so they only let the “good” ones in that they won’t use (or some such BS).
I already have a nice Marlin 1894 lever action in 45 Long Colt for the shoots. Now I just need to save up a bunch of cash to get me two Vaqueros in the same caliber and a coach gun or pump shotgun that will pass for Cowboy shoots.
With the price of ammo I will also be looking to do my own reloads since you need 120+ rounds for the shoot plus your shotgun ammo. Lucky for me the same friend that wants to get me into the Cowboy Shoots also reloads and has been nice enough to say he will teach me so we can do this. . . . I have always wanted to do reloads but have been a bit nervous about damaging a gun (or ME) if I did it wrong so I am psyched to have a teacher to show me the way. . . .
Anyway, Thanks for the concern Ted, and if anyone knows where I can get a good price on a couple of Vaqueros in .45 Long Colt in MA I would love to hear about it. . . .
Once I get set up for this I can go back to my wish list and start looking for that 1911, M1, and Springfield 1863 I eventually hope to have in my collection. . . and maybe even an evil Glock or a revolver with covered hammer for carry if I hit the loto at some point = )
The curse of the shooting sports, so many guns, so little money. . . . But at least I am not paying for a boat (that is what I tell my wife. . . .)

I suppose it would be too much to ask for them to show an example of what the Democrats have done now wouldn't it. . . .
Oh, sorry, we can't do anything on ACORN, the FBI has all their files for the investigation that is ONGOING. . . .
This guy on CNN was small potato's compared to the Dems and ACORN. . . but CNN is doing what it can to distract us. . .
They are afraid of all the raids in the area and don’t want to get caught. Sounds like we are doing something right here. Now if we can just put a bit more pressure on the illegal’s and make it worth it for them to go home, or at least tell their friends not to come here we will really be making progress.
Think of the tax money we could save if we got 180,000 illegals out of the state – you see we are paying for their health care in this lovely state of MA. Since we all have to have it by law those nice folks in the State House decided that they would pay for the illegals too.
This also gives the state an excuse when the population drops with the next census. They don’t want to admit the socialist programs, high taxes and government control is driving folks out of the state still. We have been at the bottom or in the bottom five states for population growth for years now. Compared to other states we are losing people. Now they are set up to explain that. . . You see it is not our failed programs, they can’t be the cause, you just got the count wrong. . . .
Ya right. . . . I can’t wait until I can leave this state too. . . .
I wonder if it will get cut when the Income Tax is killed in the next election? The local ACORN says it is all about housing, and does not get involved in the voter registration here. . . .
But on the bright side, before we can turn the whole US of A into a copy of the failure we call Massachusetts Obama needs to get elected. There are some out there that thing the media is bumping the poll numbers to suppress the Republican vote, figuring that they will see it as a loss and not bother. . . the numbers will tighten up closer to election day so they can say they are accurate when things are done. I don’t know if I believe it but I can see them doing it. I have all but given up on trusting any info coming from the main stream media these days. They are in Obama’s pocket and we all know it.
All I can say is get out and vote, even if you think it won’t count . . . You may be surprised and Obama can still loose this despite the MASSIVE voter fraud working for him. . . . .
Of course, I would not want to be in a major city if he does lose, I think we will see race riots like they had in LA with Rodney King in every major city. But that is a small price to pay to keep Obama out. . .
Of course if he wins, we get rid of our good Gov. Patrick as he heads to DC to suck up to Obama. . . .
Black America should demand that Obama cease his shameless pandering to the People of the Gun and launch a full-throttle crusade for sensible gun control. While he has been out on the campaign trail, dozens of Chicago children have been slaughtered in the streets.
Sorry, but gun control does not work, not here, not in the UK where they are now killing as many people or more with guns and now knives on the streets. A defenseless population is not a safe population, they are slaves, not citizens. But that is what the Socialist in the Democratic party want - a weak populous that can not defend itself, forced to do what the government says. . . . That is not America, in the "Real" America, the government works for the PEOPLE, not the other way around folks.
Then she goes on to tell us. . . .
There will be a debt to pay.
Black folks will be ecstatic about making history, but they won't settle for history. We are still treading on an uphill climb. A national black agenda is non-negotiable. There may be a New Black coming to the White House, but it's still the same old USA.
Isn’t that nice? She wants him to be President of the USA as long as he puts the Black Agenda first, not America, but Black America. . . . it is non-negotiable. . . .
What the hell is wrong with this person? Is she trying to start a race war or something in the USA? If he gets elected, he better remember that he is President of the USA, not the Black USA. If he start to play favorites then he will be there for one term at best if he doesn’t get impeached first.
I hope every voter sees this and thinks about how much Obama has brought race into this election. HE is the one constantly talking about how different he is from the others, how he don’t look like the guys on the money and such. And when one working class guy asked a question he didn't like, poor Joe the Plumber got ripped apart by the media with background checks and reports we can only dream about them actually doing to Obama. . . . one hell of a double standard and it will get worse.
That is the last thing we need in this country. We need someone who can bring the country together, not further split it on racial and economic grounds. The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for pushing division to get elected, but that is what they do best. . . . They need folks to be kept down so they can buy their votes with government handouts and govenment dependency. Don't expect them to go and fix a problem, they need the problems to keep their followers in line. If they start to educate folks and make them self reliant they may start to actually look a the socialist programs of the left and vote them out of power. . . . we can't have that can we. Be good little sheep and do what they tell you, no questions please, we will tell you what to think. . . . .
More to think about when you vote. . . . Do you want a Black President with his Black Agenda or just an American President who works for us all. . . .
In fact, if Obama wins on November 4th—and serves one full term in the Oval Office—the Presidency of the United States would be the longest consecutively held full-time job he has ever held without seeking another.
Think about that before you vote. . .

I commented on the medias treatment of him before but I will add the banner too so I can say I am one of the cool kids (well I can pretend anyway. . .)
But really, I'll say it again. Look how Obama and his media friends treat an average citizen who asked a legitimate question. If you think Bush silenced any opposition, you ain't seen nothin yet.
Obama has to be stopped for the sake of the country. If he gets in, we need to impeach him ASAP. . . .
It took a while for me to see how much this comment or I should say this way of thinking shows how far down the path to failure this country had gone. . . . My gun rights? What happened to OUR gun rights?
We as shooters may have already lost. We need to find a way to get folks to stop thinking about who’s rights are who’s out of the Bill of Rights. Folks, the Bill of Rights applies to all of us. Any of these rights that are taken are taken from all of us!
Has our schooling gotten so bad that we don’t see our rights as OURS but yours or mine? We need the kids and everyone else to understand that all the rights are ours and if we want to keep them we will need to watch and fight any attempt to place limits on “our” rights.
A quick reminder from Wikipedia:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
Now folks, these are the rules the Founding Fathers set up. The Constitution of the USA would not have been ratified without these amendments made to it, they are that important. These rights apply to all of us, no if ands or buts. If you let them take away one of them because you don’t thing it is “yours” you are wrong and you are loosing your right.
We have already started down the path of limiting our rights under the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and you could probably argue for losses under the Ninth and Tenth too. . . We pay so little attention to what our government does that they have managed to renew the Patriot act, they have added powers to wire tap and take citizens prisoner as enemy combatants to avoid the courts. They have taxed the heck out of us and built up a welfare state that was never even thought possible when the country was founded. They would have gone nuts thinking about the government taxing folks to pay out welfare.
As we continue down the slippery slope folks keep it in mind, they are OUR RIGHTS and if we don’t stand up to protect them and make sure we vote in people that understand that they are our rights then we will surely lose them. We need to vote for small government, less welfare, and fewer Democrats with their big government programs to buy votes. . . .

Lord Obama, didn't you vote YES on the bail out? What the hell was that but a bail out of Wall Street. . . .
I wonder if his actions and his talk will ever actually be the same. . . .
Obama will be seen as weak so electing him will open us to attack, and they know it. He will then do something that most people feel is not right but they will respond that way anyhow and we need to trust them?
I don't think so. . .
Since he is on the right committees in Congress to see the right intelligence it sounds like he may know something we don't about an attack planed against us. It also sounds like they will not fight back as the people would want, but do something else that we need to trust them on. . .
Like what? You going to go cry to the UN to see what they will let us do? If so, I hope they impeach you before you get back from NYC since we don't go to the UN for permission to defend ourselves you a-hole.
If there is an attack planned, and it sounds like the intel is there to say there is then we need to make sure we have a POTUS that can get the job done and protect us. We need McCain in there to deal with this, not the wuss Obama. I don't want to see Obama going to the UN or EU to ask permission to defend us like we all know he would. If we get hit again (and it is a matter of when NOT if) then we need someone with the guts to fight in the White House.
People have seen how Obama wants to spread the wealth around and take Joe the Plumbers moeny. . . that lets you know where our taxes will go under Obama. A look at Clinton and Carters presidencys will show you what he will do to the military. . . both of these actions will ruin this country at a critical time. Our economy can't take the tax hit or the shock of another attack on us. We need to do all we can to avoid this and looking weak is not how you do that.
Our enemies are scum, they are preditors looking for weakness - don't kid yourself. They don't see an open hand as an offer for peace, they see it as weakness to be exploited. They know nothing but violence and understand nothing but violence. Sorry, but that is the real world we live in. They are no better than a street gang looking for a target to rob. We can not afford to look weak now. Obama will go to the UN while Americans are killed, McCain will send out the military to do what needs to be done. . .
Think about it folks, the vote you cast may save lots of American lives. . . Or it may cost them, you choose . . .
Update - one other thing, if you are that sure of an attack, shouldn't we be doing something about it now not after they have killed Americans??? Answer - Yes, but that would be bad for Obama so we will hold off on things if we can. . .
If we don't start to speak up we will end up with Obama as POTUS and it will be due to massive voter fraud and the Democrats control of things.
They want a special prosecutor to look into ACORN, then they want to lump it into the investigations they are doing in Congress. . . Sorry, I want the FBI doing the looking into ACORN, not the DEM controlled congress who can rubber stamp it as good and move on.
We need to take back control of our elections folks or we will loose it all. It is time to start looking long and hard at where the money comes from on these folks, and who is buying control of our country. . .
Now they won't let you buy a prepaid cell phone without some form of ID to prove who you and log it so they can track what you do with the phone.
Looks like the terrorists have won there as he said, since they have taken your freedom through the government. . . gone is gone folks.
I wonder how long before they think it is a good idea here to track all we do. . . for the kids you know. . . .
If you vote for Obama, you will be making the whole country into another Massachusetts. Welcome to the Nanny state, you can no longer parent your kids, the state will tell you how to do it.
Thank you, but they are my kids, the state can keep it's hands off them thank you very much. . .
Look at what happened to the other state like MA, good old California. . . They are almost bankrupt and looking for a bail out from the Feds. . . Socialism still does not work folks, we need to learn that before Obama ruins us.
His answer? He wants the government to investigate - No, not ACORN, McCain and Palin for talking about it. . . I guess he deemed it racist to bring up the FACT that ACORN has been passing in made up voter registration. . . ie taking part in MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD in key states.
We don't want the facts out there because he fears the truth about him getting out. If people really knew who he was he would lose in a landslide. . . his answer is to attack the First Amendment. If you can't beat them then silence them right Obama?
Sorry folks, he is a fake, and a commie who will do enough damage to this country that it may take years to fix if we can . . . . He must be stopped on November 4th, vote McCain.

Read about it HERE
Too bad the midea won't look into this to prove or disprove it. . . It seems to show Obama knows this guy better than he wants us to know about
I wonder if this has anything to do with the investigation into voter fraud? I mean this is a great way to get rid of evidence of any voter fraud they may have by getting rid of the computers in a way the investigators can’t argue with.
“Yes officer, we would give you the computers to look over but you see they were stolen”
Yep awful convenient if you as me. . . . I wonder how many other offices of ACORN will get broken into as the investigation grows. . . .
And now the news media has unleashed an attack on this guy to discredit him like I have never seen turned on an average American. We now know more about Joe’s background than we do Obamas. . . .
For all you folks that claim Bush silenced any opposition speech, please take a moment and look at what they are doing to Joe.
I personally don’t care about Joe's background. He asked a fare question on taxes to a presidential candidate and he should have got a straight answer. Instead Obama changes the subject and the media goes after Joe like he was an enemy of the state (well, to them I guess he is. . .)
What do you think will happen if Obama gets in? Who will be allowed to question him then? What will that do to discussion in this country if anyone who questions Obama is called a racist and investigated by the government. This guy will make the McCarthy years look mild. Why was this kind of activity wrong if Bush or McCarthy did it but OK if Obama does it? Folks, this type of activity is wrong no matter who does it and we should all be taking note of who supports it and voting them out of office.
We are well on our way down the path to destruction of our country. We have removed may of the safeguards our founding fathers put into the government. We need to go back, we need to retake our country from these folks and say FU to them for a change. We need to vote new people into office that will respect us and our rights to talk, earn a living, and keep what we have worked for so we can raise our families. It is not too late to turn things around, we just need the guts to do it.
Guess what – He says this is going to hurt. They plan on cutting back on public safety (cops), they say to expect longer lines at government offices like the registry. . . basically they say expect to feel the pain of the cuts. . .
Tell me, why do I think that this has nothing to do with real budget cuts and everything to do with Question 1 to eliminate the income tax?
This is Massachusetts, they are going to show us who is in charge and make sure they scare us into not voting for Question 1. This is the pre show, see how much it hurts? See what we will do if you cut our budget? Now of course they are not cutting hacks from the payrolls. . . we are still paying big bucks for toll takers on the pike, and using cops as flagmen at construction sites. And our governor is still driving around in a new Caddy . . . .
Sorry, I still think they are crying wolf and we need to pass Question 1. Not like they will do it anyway. Last time we voted a reduction in the income tax and they said FU and didn’t cut a thing. They won’t this time either. We need to vote some new folks into office that will do what the voters tell them. . . .
Yes it will hurt, they will make sure it hurts to punish us for keeping our money. Then we can vote in new people and start to rebuild this state.
And if you really want to be scared, if Obama gets in we will bring the MA show on the road and go national with all the problems of this state. . . Obama is nothing more than Patrick on steroids. . .
Hang in there folks, fight a good fight and we may still win this on the state and national level. . .

Ok, time for some lighter blogging subjects. . .
While sitting here working and listing to my MP3 player I realized I needed to comment on a band that plays at Disney and if you like folk music with a twist you have to hear.
Who is this band you ask? Well, they are called Off Kilter and they play at the Canada pavilion in Disney’s Epcot park.
They are GREAT live or on CD. They play a mix of traditional Irish stuff and some of their own stuff. The trick is they have a rather unique sound. They have the traditional bag pipes but you can add to that electric guitar, electric base, keyboards and drums.
These guys ROCK. If you have ever been to Epcot you know the World Showcase Lagoon in the middle of the World Showcase – You can hear them across it when they really get going!!! That tends to piss off the family because I then usually take off for Canada to see the rest of the show complaining that I missed the start of it. . .
I tend to catch them a number of times when we go to Disney as they play a bunch of times each day there.
If you ever get the chance I highly recommend going to see them. You can hear some of their music on their web site – www.offkilter.net
You can read the whole thing here:
And we are being lured into the same noose that has ensnared so many millions of hapless souls, despite reams of pages of history. We express horror at the Hitler Youth in little matching uniforms singing “Hitler will save us, Hitler is our Lord,” but then we smile and laugh as we see grade schoolers in matching blue t-shirts singing, “Obama’s gonna save us.” We are outraged by the army of children in Sudan, but think nothing of American black boys in camouflage pumping their fists and chanting propaganda from Obama’s campaign. We are repulsed by some dictators’ claims that they are gods, but shrug it off as insignificant when Louis Farrakhan – a vicious anti-semite, among other reprehensible things – says “the Messiah is speaking” in a speech referring to Obama.
Still don’t think it can happen here? Well, you’re in good company. Neither did the Russians. Or the Germans. Or the Chinese. Or the North Koreans. Or the Vietnamese. Or the Cubans. Or the Cambodians.
I can't vote for Obama - he is Socialist, Marxist, Communist, and a few other -ist's I probably will find out after the election. . .
I don't like McCain, but he is just that slight bit better for our country than Obama.
I fear we will be looking back on the Clinton years as the good times by the time Obama is done destroying this country. . .

Luckily both kids managed to escape, unfortunately so did the criminal. . . I guess the police state idea does not work, as this sick piece of crap is still running around, possibly with a friend looking for the next kid.
So much for the safety of the suburbs . . . I guess it is time to teach our kids how to fight since no one can watch them all the time, they will have to know how to take care of themselves. . . If this state was less scared of it’s citizens we may not have these problems, but MA pushes from the start that you can not care for yourself and we actively push that you don’t. Call the cops and let them pick up what is left or you might get hurt. . . .
Thanks, I would rather risk getting hurt then let them get my kid. . . .
From the web:
Steve and Rachel Larman say a strange credit card charge appeared on their statement this month — a $2300 donation to Barack Obama's presidential campaign. The Larman's say they don't want this to be about their political affiliation, but they say they're not about to give the Obama campaign any help from their pocketbook.
They said they notified Chase, their credit card bank, to report the fraud.
"(They) said that they had seen-they were familiar with this," said Steve Larman. "It was fraud, they believe through telemarketing but they were going to be doing some more investigations."
The Larman's don't want their politics to enter into what is essentially just a fraudulent charge. But they say that the charge involves the Obama campaign adds insult to injury for the registered Republicans.
"They (Chase) kept on asking me 'are you sure you wouldnt have gone to a site in support of Obama'," said Rachel Larman. "And I repeatedly said 'Im voting for McCain — I would not be going to an Obama site'."
Looks like Michelle Obama is at it again-
Accusing API of colluding with American internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, Mrs Obama said she decided to call API because of what she termed, API's help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets in their efforts to damage a black man's name, saying she hopes African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.
When API told her that our online news media was only relaying what the American Bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations, Mrs Obama was angered and she came out loud with the following: "African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view," and she went to state that, "it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband's face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband's adoption by His step father. The important thing here is where my husband's heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that My husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner; says Michelle Obama on telefon[sic] to API."
And she has the nerve to call us racist? She should look in the mirror for the racist - OOPS sorry, she is black and therefor can 't be racist . . .
Further proof folks that we are in a world of hurt if Obama wins. You think folks got grief for speaking up against Bush you ain't seen nothin yet
I just don’t get it. Why can’t we get anyone to run for President who actually represents the people? I mean it. . . . McCain and Obama? They are both left wing, fighting to socialize our government it is just a matter of how much. The only real difference I see in them is McCain is slightly better on the Bill of Rights, but not much. . .
Why can’t we get a good candidate to run? I want someone who is focused on what is important:
National Security/Open Borders
Lower Taxes for all
Fix the economy
Instead what do we have? Massive voter fraud. A general attack on the First and Second Amendment, both sides promising to do things that don’t fall under the powers of the President, and lots of mud and dreams. . . No real workable plans from either side to fix things.
What kills me is I could vote for a Democrat (I am independent) if they would leave the Second Amendment alone and back off on the Nanny State ideals a bit. I think they have a few good ideas but they want to force too much socialism on us too. And what it is with the Republicans and attacking things like Gay Rights and Abortion. . . Two things that the Federal Government has no business getting involved in – they should be dealt with on the state level if at all. Personally I think we need less government involvement in both issues. I would also like to see the Patriot Act go away along with the Homeboy Security Department since it is redundant to say the least with all the other federal and local police we have. . . .
This is nuts. I am at the point that I have very little faith in the system left. We will end up with Obama thanks to Voter Fraud on a massive scale. If McCain does win the left will claim it is due to race. Our country is splitting apart and these two are doing nothing to fix it. For the last four elections it has become standard procedure to try to split the country. The far left and right are now running things and this is not going to help us. You can’t trust the news any more with their open love of Obama and lack of research on his past while they try to destroy McCain.
I want to see a third part that is for the middle folks. I want to see a party that thinks like the Libertarians without the far out stuff like elimination of all the drug laws and such. I don’t think the war on drugs is working but folks aren’t ready to end it yet. We need a party that can speak to the people, and work for the people. One that believes in the Bill of Rights. One that believes the government has no right to say anything on abortion and gay rights. One that will work to shrink government on both the state and federal levels by elimination of our socialist programs – Yes, I want to trim the welfare rolls and make sure only those who really can’t work are getting help. If you can work, get a job or go hungry, sorry. . . deal. I want a government that will crack down on all the frivolous law suites. . . You fell off the top of the ladder, your fault, not the ladders sorry. . . . I also want them to crack down on Nanny State laws and push for personal responsibility. Stop blaming everyone else for crime, drugs, and everything else. You are responsible for your actions. If you don’t like where you are, fix it. Ask for help but don’t expect me to enable your continued drug use or just give you a slap on the writs for mugging old folks in the park. Also don’t expect banks to loan you money if you can’t pay them back. . . That is how we got into this mess. You don’t have a right to own a home, so get a job and earn it if you want one – I am not going to pay your mortgage for you with my taxes again.
We are in a mess, and on the edge of loosing our country. We need to wake up and take it back from the politicians. They have forgotten who they work for. We need term limits and better election laws to insure that it is not only the rich that can run for office. Maybe we should have state sponsored elections with NO private money used to insure that the wealthy don’t have an advantage over the rest of us in running for office. It would also limit how much influence you can buy with your politicians since they don’t need your money any more. It is time for a radical change and we won’t get it from either of the guys running this year. . . .

I doubt there is time to check the voter records to prevent him from pulling this off. . . And you thought there were problems when Bush "stole" the election in 2000? What will happen now when there is PROOF that ACORN and others are involved in stealing the election from us since we can't be trusted to vote for their guy. . . . Call it Insurance to make sure Obama wins. They won't let the law get in the way. . . .
It is time to DEMAND that every voter shows ID to vote. It won't stop all the games, but it will cut down on them. . . . .
If Obama does "win" it will be four years of an invalid presidency since there will be no proof he actually won and did not stuff the ballot box. . . . that will make a hell of a mess out of this country. Problem is we will have the same problem if McCain wins because the media will claim he stole the election from Obama. . . . .
found at The Gunslingers blog:
A retired Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice says that she is "not confident we can get a fair election" in the state come November.
This is not a good sign folks. . .
Personally I don't see how you can't fear an Obama win. . . lets see:
Ties to domestic terrorist - Check
Ties to racist church - Check
Ties to groups active in voter fraud - Check
Ties to unknown soft money donations - Check
Ties to the folks who caused the failure of Fanny May and Freddy Mack - Check
Wants to raise our taxes in a recession - Check
Ties to groups against the First Amendment - Check
Ties to groups against the Second Amendment - Check
Wants socialized Health Care - Check
Has the support of Hamas. . .
Main Stream Media won't report on his background - Check
Sorry, that sounds like something to fear to me. . . .
It would be nice if the news did their job and actually reported the facts about this guy. Of course if they did he never would have made it through the primary's and then we couldn't have a black guy running for president. . . .
And is he really half black? Last comment I saw on it was his mom is white, and his dad is middle eastern more than anything else, so he is 50% white, 47% middle eastern, and like 3% black. . . .
But we won't hear that because it may hurt him with black voters so the media is quite on it. . . .
I still want to see this guys birth certificate. . . . the real one. . . .

The 2000 election was won by a few hundred votes in Florida
The 2004 election was won by about 50,000 votes in Ohio
If ACORN has 1,500,000 votes that it can play with who do you think will win? (Hint, Obama loves ACORN)
As this stays in the news I think we are rapidly getting to the points that no one will trust the results of this election. As I said before, we are looking at an election that both sides will contest was stolen and no one will be able to prove them right or wrong. The effect this will have on the country will be devastating. You think we are divided now you ain’t seen nothing yet. . .
Among the recent allegations of voter fraud:
• In Indiana, Democrats want to expand the number of early-voting locations in heavily Democratic precincts. “There’s voter fraud, they’re trying to steal the election,” Lake County, Ind. GOP Chairman John Curley tells CBS2Chicago.com.
• ACORN workers in Nevada used felons to assist with voter-registration drives, some of whom had been convicted of identity theft. “Some of these [registration forms] were fraudulent; we basically had the starting lineup for the Dallas Cowboys,” stated Secretary of State Ross Miller. “Tony Romo is not registered to vote in Nevada. Anyone trying to pose as Terrell Owens won’t be able to cast a ballot.”
• In Ohio, voters are allowed to register and vote the same day, which would obviously complicate any attempt to verify their eligibility to vote. The Ohio GOP has filed suit asking a federal judge to force state electoral officials to compare address and other information to the state Bureau of Motor Vehicles database. The GOP also charges that the Ohio secretary of state is disenfranchising voters by refusing to count their ballots unless all of the appropriate boxes were checked.
• Three people were arrested in Hampton, Va., for alleged voter fraud in July, after they apparently used names gathered from the local telephone book and bogus Social Security numbers and birth dates to complete registration forms.
• The Milwaukee police department filed a report earlier this year that thousands of people have streamed across the state line from neighboring states such as Illinois to cast ballots. Those voters presumably returned home to cast a second vote in their state of residence. Also, Milwaukee election officials recently turned in 32 more voter registration workers to the district attorney’s office for possible prosecution, bringing the total cases pending to 39.
Now folks, how is Sen. Hopenchange going to unite the country with this crap going on? Can someone tell me that please?
True or not you will have the lawyers all over this election and the right will scream fraud and the left will scream it is a conservative set up and the fight will begin. I really can not see how we will get through this election without the country becoming even more fractured along “party” lines than it is now.
Should Obama win it will be assumed by the right that he stole the election with voter fraud and they will start all the BS that the left now uses against Bush for “stealing” the election from Gore. . .. anyone see where this is going???
Yep, we will be worse off than before. Or at at best no better off. . .
If McCain wins then the left will scream it was due to racism and all the votes that they declared void due to fraud. . . . Again, no healing here folks. . . .
Maybe we will get lucky and both parties will self destruct over this election. It would be nice to see a few new parties out there that were not whack jobs. . . I want a party for the average American. One that backs the Constitution without wanting a police state. One that gets the government and the high taxes off the working folks of this country and stops supporting the welfare state. One that will defend our borders without getting into nation building. . .
This is going to be an interesting election no doubts, but I fear it will do more harm than good to this country. . .
If Obama wins, his policies are the same as they were in the Great Depression, so he will probably make things worse and drag this downturn out . . . .
On the bright side he will be so busy messing up the economy as he tries to fix it he may not have time to strip us of the Bill of Rights. . . .
I need to find a piece I saw about an Obama win and how he gets impeached quickly for his failures. . . it looks to be coming true. . ..
Businesses fear an Obama win and the extra taxes?
From The Natural Truth
This is not the time you want to raise taxes on people or businesses. Obama and a Dem led congress will try to tax and spend their way out of this. That is the exact wrong move if you listen to the economists. Raising taxes will just make this recession turn into a depression or worse.
McCain admits he doesn’t know the economy, but at least he admits it. He will bring in advisers that can help. Obama thinks he can fix it… He does not know what he does not know as they say in business school.
Neither candidate is a good choice for this election with the economy as the big issue. We need a Warren Buffet or other money wiz as President to try to fix this but that is not going to happen . . . we have the choices that we have.
With the market only open for about 10 minute and down 700 points we need to think only one thing here for this election. Who will fix the economy. I don’t think McCain can but at least he knows he can’t so he knows enough to get good advisers. Every time I hear Obama talk he is taxing and socializing things. Obama’s plan won’t work. We just blew a trillion dollars on a bail out (socialist idea) and since then the market has LOST 2000 points.
Someone please get an expert to take control of this PLEASE!!!! Get Congress and the government out and lets get some of our greatest economic minds involved and do what they say. . . and I doubt raising taxes will come up. . . . we need the government to stop taking money (taxes) out of our economy and let it get back on it’s feet. . . .
in 1996 he ran for office as part of the Democratic Socialist of America ticket. . . .
Nice to see we are handing the keys of the country to a true commie. . . .
No wonder he is trying to hide his past. . . we need to dig now and find the true before election day and make sure we all know it. . ..
Thanks guys, glad you all (well, you Democrats anyway) made money off crashing the economy. . .
Can't wait to see what you will do if Obama gets in. I assume we will be headed to a third world country status by the end of next year right guys?
Thanks again. . ..

Looks like Obama has been giving ACORN a bunch of cash (like 800K) to get voters.
You think the media would be all over this with the news from all over the country of ACORN and voter fraud. . . .
Ya right, and if McCain had been connected to this do you think it would be this quiet?
Didn't think so. . .
I don't think the bail out did a damn thing but cost us money we don't have. The economy will do what it wants and things will shake out and stabilize on their own. Too bad we jumped into throwing money at it. . . .
I don’t know. What I do know is that I have three kids and this election scares the hell out of me. From where I stand it looks like we are in deep doo doo no matter who wins. I will vote McCain because if I squint real hard I can see a SLIGHT difference between him and Obama.
Both of them will be bad for this country with open borders, buying up of bad debt and otherwise socializing our banks (and country) one step at a time. More BIG Government we don’t need.
I want someone to take a step back and look at what our Federal Government is involved in and what the Constitution says they can be involved in. I think if you take the time to look into it you would find that we have let the Fed get into many things that should only be done by the state and controlled at the state level. We have lost sight of what this country was supposed to be it seems. Folks don’t study history or the Constitution any more like we should. Kids grow up not really understanding it and look where it has gotten us.
We seem to now have a nation of folks that feel they are owed things, homes, healthcare, jobs etc. . . . People are fond of saying “it is my right!” is it? You are not owed anything but the right to be free within the bounds of the Constitution. It is up to you to earn your way through life. Go to school, learn what you need to so you can get a job that will pay for you to live in the style you want to. If you dropped out of high school it is not up to me to pay for your house, you can rent a small place and deal with it. Go back to school, learn a trade or get a GED and go to college. . .
America is supposed to be a place were you can get anything you want, but you are supposed to earn it, not expect those who have worked for things to give them to you. And the government is not supposed to be taking from the “rich” to give to the “poor”. The government was supposed to exist to protect our rights, and be only as big as it needs to be to do that one function. It is now way past that and we let it get there. I can see a SMALL amount of government in the welfare area. We need to make sure folks are not starving in the street but it has gone beyond that. There was a time folks were ashamed to be on “aid” or welfare and all they wanted to do was get a new job and get off it. I have nothing against government aid to the ill or otherwise legitimately can’t work, but that is not who is getting most of this money. Now it is a way of life for many who could be working.
What can we do? We need to start sending new people to both the federal and state level governments. We can vote in folks that think small government and personal responsibility. We need to start to teach folks about the Constitution and the limits that are in there. We need to take responsibility for our actions. Will this hurt? Yes, but we need to do it. Fixing things will hurt as people are weaned off of the addiction of free money and big government programs. How do we do it? I don’t know, but we need to do things one step at a time and start at the local level so we can control it.
Here in MA we are trying to take back our government with Question 1. I don’t know if it will pass, but either way I think it will be close. Question 1 would repeal our income tax. This would be a nice first step to curbing an out of control spending government in these bad times. Things are getting tight all over and we need to stop government on all levels from spending like a drunken sailor to try to fix things.
I don’t know about you but to me it seems that everything the government has gotten it’s hands into tends to get worse, not better as the bureaucrats take over. We need new ideas, new folks running things, and people willing to do the work getting the government out of our lives as much as possible. I don’t know where we will get them. Who in their right mind would put their families through the wringer of the main stream media to get into office to fix things.
The media is part of the problem and needs to find its way back to reporting the truth about all sides of our government. They need to go back to being the watch dog that lets us know the crap the government is trying to pull on us and stop pushing for one party only. Power corrupts any party and the free press is supposed to tell us about it so we can vote out the corrupt folks in Washington or at the state level when they are found out but that is not what they are doing. Hey Media, time for you to go back to your real job and pick apart all sides of our government, not just the conservatives. There is just as much dirt out there about the Dems as the Republicans, find it so we can make an educated choice in our elections, not one based on the party propaganda. . . .
Well, that is my rant for today. . . I will try to be more hinged in the future. . .
Marion County Clerk to be investigated for voter fraud.
Marion County, Indiana has 105% of all eligible voters registered
Officials in Lake County, Ind. report that fully 1,100 of 2,000 new voter-registration forms delivered by ACORN were “suspicious.”
In Washington state, officials recently closed an investigation into ballot cheating that resulted in prison terms.
ACORN submitted more than 800 phony registration forms in Independence, Mo., with one woman registering 10 times, using three birthdates, four different Social Security numbers and six different phone numbers.

What is he trying to say? Is that a threat that if we don’t elect him something bad is going to happen? What is he, the mob or something?
I have also heard the comment that if your kids go to public school and he looses keep them home the next day. . . .
I love the way they push this. . . if he looses it has to be due to race, so we will get upset and riot in the streets. It has nothing to do with the fact that he is a Socialist/Marxist and totally out of touch with main stream USA right??
Personally I don’t thing I have a problem as I live in the suburbs and we are in a nice town but in the cities we may be in trouble if he looses. What is it in folks that they buy into this crap to the point where folks are actually starting to plan for riots if he looses? Even the radio is starting to talk about it.
I still think he can loose. Most of his base is made up of folks that traditionally don’t turn out to vote, college kids and minorities. They make a lot of noise but they don’t actually vote and never have. We may be at a turning point and maybe they will turn out and vote – we will see. . . .
I am also starting to think that we need to limit folks who vote to people that actually know what is going on in the world. At least you should have to show a valid ID to vote to keep out the illegal’s and attempt to limit voter fraud such as ACORN is pulling. Maybe the founders had a point when they limited voting to land owners. At least then you are getting folks that have a vested interest in what the government does and how much money they take from you. Letting the uneducated masses vote may not have been on of our better ideas hear. . . we will see.
An Obama win may make it all a moot point anyway as we probably will be well into our downward slide by the time he leaves office. I have been saying for a while that I think history will show our decline started with the hippy movement of the 60’s and went from there. With the socialist in charge we truly have lost the fight and the country as we know it. It will be a long hard fight to bring us back to what the founders had in mind if we even have the ability to do that at this point. To have any hope we need to get the liberals out of the schools and teach our kids the way things work according to the Constitution. Stop the brainwashing of the children, then maybe we would have a chance.
For now, the big thing is the election. We have more riding on this than you may think. If Obama does win then there is a good chance he will not only ram through a bunch liberal crap with a DEM Congress and the media’s help, but he may also be able to tip the Supreme Court to the left with the appointment of a number of judges, then all may be lost as they will be able to undo anything they want. Imagine Bill Clinton on the Supreme Court. . . . I rest my case. . . .
