And as usual the fumbling bumbling illiterate stupid and incompetent Right Wing is responsible for it all. Yes, in an act of savant genius they have mounted an unlikely conspiracy that no one saw coming and caused this tumbling in popularity of our beloved liberals, who only care about the people after all. Yeah Right~
I have another explanation and I would like to address the liberals out there that can't figure out why the public opinion has begun to turn so radically.
Soda Tax, Fast food Tax, Cigarette Tax, Cigarette Bans, Big Screen TV Bans, Water Shut off in Cali. Lack of border control, Freebies, Health care Bill, Climate Bill, Fairness Act, Hate Crime Laws, Gay Rights Laws, Back door deals, not representing the people, Radio and Internet Censor Act, Cap N Trade, Acorn, SEIU.
Town halls calling Americans Terrorist, staging fights, ignoring Tea Parties, Slanted News, Ignoring news, Insulting our Nation, keeping us from drilling, overspending and wasting our taxes, Perverting the Constitution to fit your agenda, Taking God out of America, Causing Racism to explode. Creating Communism, Creating Euro pianism, driving private business out, expanding a failed Federal Gov, The Water Act,The Commerce Act,Favoritism of Tax dollars, Discrimination, and most importantly, Treason.
How ever you view it, most of the world doesn't like you.

stood on the Senate floor and compared health care opponents to the old supporters of slavery. "Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans can come up with is this: slow down, stop everything, let's start over," Reid said. "If you think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said slow down, it's too early, let's wait, things aren't bad enough."
Today, his office may have defended those remarks, but what they cannot defend is Sen. Reid's distortion of the facts. It was his party--not the GOP--who stood in the way of American freedom. Every vote against the Republican Party, it wouldn't have become the law of the land.to free the slaves was cast by a Democrat. Every vote against Lincoln 's was cast by a Democrat. In 1922, when Republicans tried to outlaw lynching, Senate Democrats filibustered the bill until it died and continued filibustering against it until it was approved in 1957. When the great finally passed, Republicans in the Senate backed it 23-6, but Democrats in the majority approved by only 44-23. Without the
Sen. Reid isn't making history--he's making it up! If his party shows this much disregard for the past, then Americans should be terribly worried about their future. When the Majority Leader is willing to rewrite history to score cheap political points, how can we trust him with something as vital as health care?

I don't know how you feel about this, but the mass media ignoring important NEWS stories?!?! I get a little nervous when the media (nicknamed 'Watchdog') is curled up at any one's feet, especially a sitting US President. This is what happens with the Network News (ABC, CBS and NBC).
Whenever there is a Republican in the White House the 'Nets' dig up ALL the dirt they can and report even unconfirmed stories (which later turn out to be grossly false), the never apologize for the misrepresentation painting Republicans in the worst possible light night after night..and they call that balanced.
On the Flip side, when Democrats rule those same Networks completely ignore any hint of a negative story and just pretend that only 'EXTREME' right wing news outlets are reporting that because they are biased. What utter BS!
Now if you only watched the NETS you would think Sarah Palin has dropped out of politics and has turned to prostitution. You wouldn't know a thing about the FAKE Global Warming data that has been destroyed and replaced with fabricated data that can now never be substantiated. You wouldn't know that ACORN is a very bad organization condoning sex trade and illegal prostitution funded by government loans. You wouldn't know that Van Jones was a self avowed communist and has a real problem with white people, and you might not even know that he had to resign from Obama's Czar Harem.
I have just recently come to terms with the fact that the NETS are completely biased with a Socialist Agenda and skew every news story to support their not-so-hidden agenda..I can deal with that. But this new development of silencing the truth is just plain scary. And with this afore mentioned behavior, some in congress have the nerve to declare that those same media outlets should get a 'bail out' from the federal government. I hope the American citizens have the common sense to see that we the people are the 'great equalizer'. It's good to have powers in our government balance themselves against other branches. It's good to switch political parties power to let the pendulum swing the other way. It's wonderful to have debate on such important issues as war, security, health care and our fragile economy. It's diabolical to silence the truth and stifle the debate. I don't blame those on the left who were elected, rightly so, to be who they are and who they were elected as. But it is really really wrong to pretend you are a balanced media and that you represent the majority of Americans (both assumptions on their parts couldn't be further from the truth)and then proceed to boast your bias apologetically as though it is majority opinion.
Only the left takes the minority opinion and lies to the populous to deceive them into believing that their opinions are actually the minority opinions, while pushing the minority agenda on the masses. It's good to push the envelope from time to time but there is a line and it has been crossed repeatedly over the last 12 months.
Change and Hope?
It's time to CHANGE our leaders..
We HOPE we never elect people like them again!

Hacked Global Warming Databases have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Global Warming (the belief that Human activities is killing or damaging our planets atmosphere) is a complete and utter fraud.
In light of this new revelation (and after dealing with the disgust you must feel if you believed it) this video is a sham, ridiculous and very poor taste.

A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.' The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.' The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page... So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?' The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.' The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page: U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH
That pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days.
Buyer's remorse. I cannot believe how we are literally watching this failed presidency implode right before our very eyes.I can't believe I voted for this communist idiot. I actually thought he would be different. Sorry to all my fellow Americans who are about to take it up the tail pipe because of those of us who voted for this corrupt failed president.

The lamestream media is so busy covering Sarah Palin and trying to find dirt on her they don't have time to do real reporting on things that are really hurting this country. I like Sarah but she's never going to be President so please stick to what you are really supposed to be and that's be journalists who dig deep and uncover stories that matter to our country. We are losing our country to the libs so fast my head is spinning.

I am a trader. I earn what I get in trade for what I produce. I ask for nothing more or nothing less than what I earn. That is justice. I don't force anyone to trade with me; I only trade for mutual benefit. Force is the great evil that has no place in a rational world. One may never force another human to act against his/her judgment. If you deny a man's right to Reason, you must also deny your right to your own judgment.Why is it moral to serve others, but not yourself? If enjoyment is a value, why is it moral when experienced by others, but not by you? Why is it immoral to produce something of value and keep it for yourself, when it is moral for others who haven't earned it to accept it? If it's virtuous to give, isn't it then selfish to take? Your acceptance of the code of selflessness has made you fear the man who has a dollar less than you because it makes you feel that that dollar is rightfully his. You hate the man with a dollar more than you because the dollar he's keeping is rightfully yours. Your code has made it impossible to know when to give and when to grab. Is it ever proper to help another man? No, if he demands it as his right or as a duty that you owe him. Yes, if it's your own free choice based on your judgment of the value of that person and his struggle. This country wasn't built by men who sought handouts. In its brilliant youth, this country showed the rest of the world what greatness was possible to Man and what happiness is possible on Earth. Then it began apologizing for its greatness and began giving away its wealth, feeling guilty for having produced more than its neighbors.Your destroyers hold you by means of your endurance, your generosity, your innocence, and your love. Don't sacrifice the world to those who will take away your happiness for it.Any compromise between good and evil only hurts the good and helps the evil.I swear by my Life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man,nor ask another man to live for the sake of mine.

It's really kind of funny when you think about it. Those people who are inherently evil are the first to vehemently cast dispersions on the motives of others, and accuse them of what they themselves do.
It's so common it's even found in the Bible in Roman's 2:1 talking about human nature it says "So you have no reason, whoever you are, for judging: for in judging another you are judging yourself, for you do the same things."
Let me put this into perspective. When George W. Bush was the POTUS the left wing media went ape*$#@ on him, some pundents were unabated in their vehement hatred on these networks with the 'Balanced' so-called media shaking their heads saying "see what this president is doing to people". They set out (with help from the DNC) to destroy the POTUS's Approval Ratings, knowing that would lead to mid-term election losses and diminish his effectiveness. By the time George Bush left office his approval rating was one of the lowest ever. He was silent, didn't put up a fight or defend himself. George Bush certainly never accused CNN of not being a 'REAL' news outlet or boycotted NBC or CBS. Was he happy about the media? Probably not.
Now Mr. Obama and the Democrats are in about as great political power as one party will ever see in the United States. They now have EVERY major news outlet licking their feet and bowing in praise, except one. There is one network simply telling the truth and their audience is mostly conservative but they have a greater independent audience than any other network (it's called Balance). The news media's JOB is to be skeptical of Government! Always has been and hopefully it always will be.
And now Mr. Obama and the DNC are hitting FOX as though they are targeting Mr. Obama's approval numbers and are trying to do anything they can to destroy the President...hmmm
...No that would be the DNC and the Liberal (STATE) media against President Bush in a concerted effort to destroy him from 2004-2008. So in other words: President Obama is accusing FOX of TRYING TO DO what his party and complicit media ACTUALLY did.
Let's look at that Bible Passage again: "So you have no reason, whoever you are, for judging: for in judging another you are judging yourself, for you do the same things"
Mr. Obama, it's time to pull your troops and accept a skeptical media outlet like FOX NEWS. I know that you have never had anyone publicly scrutinize your actions or policies before. You have only had praise from media and never before criticism. But the truth is that FOX news is the only media outlet that can legitimize you with the people and give you a fighting chance at a second term.
NEWS FLASH UPDATE: DRUDGE REPORT has learned that Mr. Obama is going to grant and interview to Major Garrett of FOX news next week when he is in China!...
If this report is true, I have just gained a measure of respect for President Obama that I had not previously possessed. . . We Shall See.

1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman (Carol Shea-Porter) ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)
2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman's (Moore) staffer (Howard Bauleke), who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts.''
Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa ''
His response -- click.
3. A senior Vermont Congressman (Bernie Sanders) called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried t o explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.
He replied, 'don't lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!'' (OMG)
4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife (Landra Reid) who asked, ''Is it possible to see England from Canada?''
I said, ''No.''
She said, ''But they look so close on the map.'' (OMG, again!)
5. An aide for a cabinet member (Janet Napolitano) once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.'' (Aghhhh)
6. An Illinois20 Congresswoman (Jan Schakowsky) called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m.
I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.
7. A New York lawmaker, (Jerrold Nadler) called and asked, ''Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?'' I said, 'No, why do you ask?'
He replied, ''Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!''
After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, Ca. is (FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage.
8. A Senator John Kerry aide (Lindsay Ross) called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, ''Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?''
9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, Bobby Bright (D) from Alaska who asked, ''How do I know which plane to get on?''
I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.''
10. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) called and said, ''I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?''
I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola, FL on a commuter plane.
She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!''
11. Mary Landrieu (D) La. Senator called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa 'Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those.''
I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ''Look, I've been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!''
12. A New Jersey Congressman (John Adler) called to make reservations, ''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.''
I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?''
'Yes, what flights do you have?'' replied the man.
After some searching, I came back with, ''I'm sorry, sir, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a rhino anywhere."
''The man retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!''
So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ''You don't mean Buffalo, do you?''
The reply? ''Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.''
Now you know why the Government is in the shape that it's in!
Could anyone be this DUMB?
YES, THEY WALK AMONG US, ARE IN POLITICS, AND THEY CONTINUE TO BREED.

Me: Well, ya but I'm 1/32 Cherokee, Danish, French and Irish, oh and some German and Swedish.
Liberal: But You're White
Me: Ok, I'm White
Liberal: You're a Racist
Me: No, I don't really pay attention to people's race. I respect all humans no matter their heritage
Liberal: But You're White, You don't want Mexicans to come into this country, You're a Racist
Me: No, I am not a Racist. I respect all Mexicans that want to immigrate to our country legally, that's what they expect of us. I told you I respect all humans.
Liberal: You're White. You don't consider Blacks to be human that's why your ancestors had slaves.
Me: No, my ancestors were from Europe. I believe in the US Constitution that says that "All Men Are Created Equal." I respects all humans.
Liberal: You're White, founders who wrote the constitution were White just like you. Some of the signers had slaves. Conservatives defend the constitution. Conservatives are White, Conservatives are Racist. You're a Conservative.
Me: Well, yeah I believe in the founding documents of our great nation, and if that makes me a conservative then yeah, I guess I am. But I am not a Racist
Liberal: You're White, You're Conservative, You're a Racist.
Me: Can't we just talk like two human beings about the issues that matter to all of us?
Liberal: You gave up your right to have a civil discussion the day you were born White. We are in control, You're White, You're Conservative, You're a Racist. Now sit down and be quiet. You have run this country for over 200 years, America is a racist country, it's our turn now.
Me: Isn't that a Racist Attitude to call me a Racist just because I am White?
Liberal: Ok see that's what I am talking about. You are like a 'pot calling the Kettle Black'. You are calling me a kettle, you are calling me black and that's Racist. You're White, You're Conservative, You're a Racist
Me: Whatever..Ok you win..I'm White, I'm a Conservative, I'm a Racist.. Go John McCain!
Me: Sheesh, I wish that I could be judged by the content of my Character and not the color of my skin. . .
Let's see, in 2008 the Republican party nominated a guy who is a little to the right of Joe Lieberman (Democratic Vice Presidential candidate in 2000). This resulted in disgust in the base and zero political capitol or influence. We went so far left that McCain and his 'buddies' were in agreement with the Democrats that the 'era of Reagan ism' is over. That's like saying the era of the Constitution of the United States is over (though I expect to hear that any day out of this white house).
Short story here is Obama used ALL of his political and partisan capital getting an 'anti-stimulus' package passed while jobs continued to decline and the market floundered. April 15 rolled around and hundreds of thousands of 'Conservatives', liberals, independents and republicans (Americans) rallied in various sites called 'Tea Parties (Suggested by a CNBC financial guy named Rick Santelli). This was a classic free speech and assembly constitutional right being exercised and The White House and Congress were quick to belittle the numbers dismissing the people as Republican fanatics that were disgruntled because the lost the election to a black man (same was repeated by the 'talking heads 'all over the network and cable shows). The news networks and all cable except FOX denounced the protesters as 'tea baggers', a disgusting sexually deviant (many apologized later claiming ignorance). The PEOPLE got pissed and felt dissed.
Enter the health care reform bill, again Obama tried to use his political persuasion (along with a majority in both houses of congress) to get health care reform passed before the end of July break. Whew! We dodged a bullet thanks to Sarah Palin calling them on 'death panels' and shining a light on the mostly hidden and harmful provisions in the bill. Then came the Townhall meetings in August and those Pissed/Dissed tea party participants got a crack at the very people who had dissed them. Wow, we saw passion in our citizens that hasn't been seen in decades. Alot of people at this point realized that what they believe in their heart of hearts puts them into the conservative category.
September 12th, 1 to 2 million march on Washington DC, coalitions formed now between Town Haller's and Tea Partier's along with many other conservative organizations. The movement grew and continued to grow in a conservative vane. Again White House and Congress unsuccessfully tried to minimize the numbers and the character of those who marched. American freedom is feeling good to these folks about now with a couple of elections approaching in November.
Governors of New Jersey and Virgina are up for re-election on November 3rd and the Democrat incumbents are losing in their respective polls to their Republican challengers. In upstate NY in a special election in district 23, there was another very liberal running on the Republican ticket Dierdre Scozzafava, suddenly a very conservative Doug Hoffman, who is virtually unknown enters the race and shoots in front of both Democrat and Republican opponents with endorsements from Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. The network and cable news (except for FOX again) reports on a month old poll put out on the Daily KOS (ultra-liberal website) trying to mask for as long as possible the real feelings of the people of district 23. The actual current poll showed Hoffman leading a week before it was ever reported.
So now that there is a real possibility for Hoffman to win in district 23 Republican Dierdre Scozzafava withdraws from the race and endorses her Democrat counterpart (shocked?). The media is already rehearsing how they will report the Hoffman victory with this headline today..
"GOP BECOMING MORE AND MORE EXTREME"
Are you KIDDING ME? We have a socialist in the white house with socialists ruling the Senate and House. The Socialist President is surrounding himself with avowed communists and socialists, to whom he has given unconstitutional power. This administration and congress has strayed as far away from the guiding principals of our founding documents, as has ever been done before.. And because We The People have stood up like our founding fathers and said STOP IT, we are causing the GOP to go to the extreme??!?
It seems to me that one constant message and action of this administration and congress has been to consistently suppress the voice of the people. We have in essence been told to 'Sit down and shut up'. We are pissed and we feel dissed~
We are going to see Democrats defeated roundly on November 3rd and a real referendum against Obama in the 2010 elections. This should stop the bleeding but they will need to be sharp on 'damage control until the 2012 elections where the conservative voice of the people will be heard in a landslide election. California is turning Red in 2012!!

So Stacy and I started the 6 week body Make over on Oct. 12. I have already lost 8lbs in two weeks and I can just feel the weight falling off. So we will be done just around Thanksgiving time. Probably take a little break from the diet then maintain through Christmas and begin January back on the plan until I reach my goal (180).
Below I have posted a picture about as accurate as I can find of my weight before I started the diet. Here is how the diet works:
Your body is designed to eat smaller portions and more frequent than the 3 squares per day that we have been taught since childhood. This diet starts with the premise of smaller more frequent portions and portions out proteins, carbs, veggies and fruit all across the day. Each body type is different (I am body type 'B' for example) and your body type will determine if you need more proteins or carbs, fruits etc.. but it's all pretty close. The idea is that while you are portioning or 'grazing' as a friend used to call it, you are also restricting the intake of sugar, salt and fat.
If you are curious which body type you are take the quiz http://www.mybodymakeover.com/tools_for_success/body_blueprinting_quiz.aspx
Stacy and I have added to our eating regimen, exercise as well. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we wake up, drink a protein shake and drive over to LA Fitness where we do a 7 minute warm up, play 2-3 games of very competitive racquetball, and hit the machines for about 10 minutes working just a few muscle groups.
On Tuesday we get up and take a rigorous 30 minute walk around our neighborhood which ends with a 1/4 mile of uphill grade (very nice). Then on Thursday we drive over to Fontana park on Summit Ave where they have built a really nice community park and center. We try not to sit in front of the TV on weekends but focus on home tasks and goals like the yard, garage, and house projects.
Except that I love salt the diet itself is not a huge issue. The first week sucks because, for me at least, my body went through withdrawals and I didn't see a single pound lost until I weighed a week after we started. So 4 days in was the hardest time for me and if I was going to quit, that would have been the day! Thank goodness I have an awesome companion who helped me through it (Stacy of course!)
So by Thanksgiving I am hoping to be down to around 210 or less and break 200 by the end of January (I turn 50 on the 21st). Stacy and I are ready to live at our healthy weights for many years to come.
If you are struggling with your weight, I hope this can serve as an encouragement that 'All Things Are Possible'. I have had issues with my weight since I was 10 years old (my nickname was 'Fat Albert', and this diet has consistently worked for Stacy and I. This is our third time doing this diet and it probably won't be our last.
I think I weighed about 235 lbs in this picture.

I am here to offer a 'Fair and Balanced' point of view. I think that Mr. Obama is the biggest 'Hillbilly' we have had in office since Harry Truman!
Obama is like Jed Klampett who comes to DC from Chicago where his small town thuggery was the law of the land, kind of like marrying cousins and sisters works in the back hills of Tennessee. But once he comes to DC does he 'Smartly' adapt to the politics of the land and manipulate and politic his way into accomplishing the goals of his agenda.. NO
Instead, he pushes forward against the will of the people. Then he uses his Saul Alinsky tactics to isolate and attack anyone who disagrees with him. He attacked Rush Limbaugh, The Chamber Of Commerce, and Fox News (let's not forget what he did to Joe the Plumber during the campaign).
His backward ways have continued in a neadrathal manner as he clumsily stumbles into his 10th month still blaming Bush, offering nothing but future despair, and accomplishing nothing, zip, nada..
I can hear some of you now saying "oh but Obama is such an eloquent speaker" Really? Let's see what he says when he is 'off prompter'. Here are Obama's ACTUAL words.
“On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”- Barack Obama
"I had an uncle who was ... part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps," Obama said. One small problem; the former Soviet Union liberated Auschwitz January 27th 1945, not the American 89th Infantry Division that Obama’s great uncle was a member of. Auschwitz is in Poland, not Germany and in January, 1945, America was still involved in the Battle of the Bulge.
Obama to Sunrise, FL: “How’s it going, Sunshine?…It’s good to be in Sunshine!”
Obama, in his memoir, Dreams of My Father, writes of a story in Life magazine that influenced him -- about a black man trying to bleach his skin white. No such article could be found in Life or Ebony.
Marking the anniversary of the March 1965 "Bloody Sunday" in Selma, Ala., Obama, speaking at a church, said his parents got together "because of what happened in Selma." Obama was born in 1961.
“And just in case you missed it, this week, this week there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people dead.”- Barack Obama, from a speech he made in May of 2007. Actually, 11 people were tragically killed in that tornado.
"We only have a certain number of them (translators) and if they are all in Iraq, then its harder for us to use them in Afghanistan," Obama said. Obama posited -- incorrectly -- that Arabic translators deployed in Iraq are needed in Afghanistan – forgetting that Afghans don't speak Arabic.
No wonder, then, that demagogues like Hugo Chavez have stepped into this vacuum.”- Barack Obama. Hugo Chavez came to power during the Clinton Administration, and was first elected President of Venezuela in 1998, two years before the Bush Administration took office.
"What it says is that I'm not very well known in that part of the country (Kentucky)," Obama said. "Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a nearby state of Arkansas. So it's not surprising that she would have an advantage in some of those states in the middle."
Trouble is, as a look at a US map (with territories) shows, Arkansas may be "nearby," but Obama's home state of Illinois is "adjacent"
In his book, Dreams From My Father, Obama admitted his drug use when young: "Pot (marijuana) had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow (cocaine) when you could afford it. Not smack (heroin), though."

NEW YORK (AP) - Journalism is at risk and American society must act to preserve it. That's a key message in a new report co-authored by Len Downie, former executive editor of The Washington Post.
In a paper commissioned by the Columbia University Journalism School, Downie and Michael Schudson, a Columbia professor, argue the government, universities and nonprofit foundations should step in as newspapers suffer financially.
Among other steps, the authors recommend that the government ensure the tax code allows local news outlets to operate as non-profits. They urge philanthropic organizations to support local reporting. And they suggest a fund be established using fees from telecom or Internet providers for grants to innovative local news groups.
Every popular president goes through the cycle of declining popularity. It begins with a high approval with control of both houses. He doesn't meet party expectations because he wants to actually accomplish something meaningful, loses popularity due to media coverage of opposing parties grievances and then come the mid-term elections. Popular party loses seats and possibly control of one or more houses. President tries to gear up for the next election and campaigns the last two years on what he will accomplish if given another 4 years. Key people in the presidents own party turn against the president and the media covers the drama. Finally the president, in the end has a very low rating as he leaves office.
But it all starts when the Media begins reporting negative news about the president within the first two years. It happens to every president, no matter what party, it's as certain as wrinkles and age spots are and there is nothing you can do about it.. Until Now.
If President Obama can pull off this Government funding to 'Save' the Newspaper industry then we are all in very big trouble. This will mean that the President can 'bully' the 'State' media to release only good (and false) reports about him while completely demonizing the independent press who still have a profitable product, meeting customer demands for truth and balance. We have seen how this will play out in Venezuela with the government raiding, closing and suspending media outlets that report truth, which is what the people crave.
President Obama is trying to do what I have predicted in this blog before, he wants to create a government environment that is not Representative of the people, rather good for the people (the masses) strictly controlled by the few (socialism, communism, dictatorship). This seems to be the only way Liberals can actually say what they believe and still remain in power, because Lord knows if Obama had told us that THIS is what he would do if elected, we would never have voted him into office.
Finally, the White house was busted this week talking about how they 'Control' the stories that get reported in the media. This along with their escalating attacks on Fox News is setting a dangerous precedent for future media/President relations. The last President to behave this way was Richard Nixon towards the Washington Post and we all know how well that worked out for 'Tricky Dick'.
The solution for the newspaper industry is to begin writing truthful stories curbing extreme bias and rewarding stories that are balanced and factual. This will bring the patrons back and when everything goes electronic why they will have a following. As it stands now the New York Times, USA Today, the LA Times etc.. will continue their decline in readerships until they decide to present ALL the news and give both sides to each story. Even if there is a Government takeover of the newspaper industry it won't work until the competition is Squashed. This is precisely what will happen to our private insurance if we get government health care, this is what did happen to the rail industry with AMTRAK.
Dear Mr. President, please leave us alone...

Here are some of my thoughts:
- America IS a great country due to it's great freedom afforded to it's citizens
- Republicans stand for personal freedom, personal accountability and personal success
- Democrats stand for the victim and the down and out
- Both ideals are valuable on their face while greed for power corrupts both points of view
- Republican policies make us safer as a country, they demonstrate that any threat to American freedom will result in a strong response, including military.
- Democrat policies make us a friendlier country, they demonstrate that they have no stomach for fighting and try diplomacy first, last and always.
- Republican generosity breeds healthy charities that benefit the community
- Democrat compassion breeds government controlled charity that benefits few and hurts the masses
- Republican ideals lend itself to the hyper-committed called conservatives, who believe that our founding documents were 'exceptional', rare and should be adhered to strictly, allowing updates for technology and social trends with personal freedom as the paramount ideal
- Democrat ideals lend itself to the hyper-committed called liberalism, that believe our founding documents are imperfect as they were written by slave owners (In some cases) therefore the constitution is a bigot inspired document. They believe that the constitution and personal rights are the things standing in their way to 'progressive' social changes.
- Republican policies result in companies like WAL*MART being successful, offering jobs to thousands, while keeping prices low helping local communities with charitable giving.
- Democrat policies result in labor unions driving up wages (against all business advice), driving up the cost of the product offered by companies (Like GM?), and creating fiscally unsustainable pensions and lifetime health benefits (Like the US Government).
Clearly, the policies of the Democrat party don't create personal wealth, they don't protect personal freedoms and they don't make America safer in any way shape or form.
Infact, the only reason we aren't completely attacked and conquered during the rule of Democrat leadership is the threat that the successor will be a Republican, who will take back everything the Democrat's gave away and then some (usually accompanied by an uninvited regime changed).
Now in defense of Democrat behavior, they keep republicans honest and play a great Devil's Advocate and keep Republican greed in check. But as for leading the greatest nation on earth? I trust those who emulate the people who fought, died and risked life and liberty for all of our rights to choose. I am ready for a conservative revival!

October 16, 2009 - by Frank J. Fleming
Conservative arguments against President Obama are becoming increasingly silly. They oppose Obama rescuing businesses despite all the jobs on the line, they’re against government taking control of health care from soulless insurance companies, and they oppose increased taxes on energy consumption despite the sorry state of the environment. And why do they oppose these most sensible actions? Because of their irrational, brain-dead obsession with liberty.
Of course, everyone likes freedom — to a point — but there are a number of loud, stupid Americans who just take it to ridiculous extremes. They hoard their freedoms like greedy little dwarfs hoarding gold when they have little actual use for most of it. People need rules and order and guidance, but they hardly ever need liberty.
Liberty doesn’t feed your family. Liberty doesn’t heal you when you’re sick. Liberty doesn’t educate your children. A strong government can do all those things, but apparently that’s against liberty. Thus these freedom-obsessed conservatives ignorantly rail against it like Bible-thumpers do against science, when they should realize it’s not their enemy; it’s their superior.
Just look at this ludicrous debate over health care reform. Of course the government should provide health care for everyone; how obvious can anything be? The government has the money and smart people working for everyone’s interests to make sure all get health care, so why would anyone be against that? Because apparently people aren’t “free” to make their health care choices for themselves. How is that freedom worth anything when people go without? Real freedom is not having to worry about health care, and that’s what you get when you have the government take it over. Yes, you’ll have little control over who gets what kind of care, but some people will just have to suffer some for the betterment of the whole. The advantage of having the government in control is that it makes sure the fewest number suffer, and those that do aren’t particularly important.
Simple logic like this, though, is like water off a duck’s back to the tea baggers. They scream about their money being taken, but what exactly were they going to spend it on? Beer hats? NASCAR tickets? Cheetos?
Oh, yes, that’s freedom worth preserving. But the more money the government has, the more control it can take over businesses and, thus, the economy. Then job creation lies in the hands of government — which looks out for its citizens — instead of in the hands of uncaring corporations out to make a buck off the misery of others. But apparently many Americans like being preyed upon by heartless corporations because that’s “liberty.” Well, if that’s liberty, no wonder so many progressive-minded people don’t want to participate.
This isn’t to say freedom is a bad thing. I think we can all agree that people should have unlimited freedom to do whatever weird sex stuff they like. Also, people should have the liberty to use mind-altering drugs. We should also have freedom of speech, but that ought to be limited by common sense. College campuses are a good example: they allow all sorts of progressive-minded speech and ban what they consider to be dangerous or hateful speech. That’s a perfectly fine standard, as long as we have the right people in charge making those decisions. That’s why it’s much more important than freedom to make sure we have the right people in government.
So what would be optimal in this country if we stopped the mindless liberty worship? I suggest slavery. Yes, I know it has a long awful history, but think about it. With slavery, everyone is guaranteed a job. Slaves get food and shelter. And we can make sure all needs are met by forcing people to take the jobs they are best suited for.
Slavery is true freedom, because it is freedom from want and worry. It may have been a horrible thing when racist southerners were doing it, but think of how great it could be if benevolent liberals looking out for the good of all were in charge. I would say it is, in fact, the ultimate progressive ideal.
But how are we going to sell slavery to people when they don’t even want a public option?

Do not get old if the new healthcare plan passes in Congress.
We need to ban together and get all the facts. How are they
paying for this plan? Easy answer by limiting healthcare to the
elderly. By that I mean that there will be an age cut-off to which
a doctor will tell you that you cannot have a stent, and/or bypass.
Yes, it's coming to that, painlessly to say.
From what I'm understanding we will all be under the umbrella of a age
limit for extensive procedures. Our administration will not be
effected by this healthcare plan as they have good healthcare
for life. Rules, rules, that will not effect our government officials.
The scenario back when social security came about in 1935 age 65
was the retirement age. Now it seems like we're living longer into the
nineties, and the administration is probably thinking that 30 years to draw
social security and Medicare is to long, so now they will modify the
system by having control of how long that we're to live.
Now hear this: "Out to pasture you go." Never mind what you've
done for your country, you are at the ripe old age and the government
considers you a 'liability'.
Stay young forever, or get an administrative government job, or save your money
for the extensive healthcare that you may need when your insurance
no longer pays for it at the cut-off. Money talks and old age walks, so
save your dollars, as someday you may need it for a life saving procedure.

Ayers, Wright, Alinsky, ACORN...
I don't know if I can support him now...
WARNING!!! Graphic display of incriminating collusion...
Saturday, October 3, 2009
For almost a year now, the AP has begun stories about Sarah Palin "Sarah Palin, former failed Vice Presidential candidate,..." Well Sarah is about to blow away every record of best selling non fiction books and the libs at the AP and NYT will have to cover her or risk being laughed out of business. In fact all liberal media is scratching to get their dismal credibility back.
So I have a challenge for the 'main stream'(choking with laughter)media. How about beginning EVERY story about Mr. Obama.
"President Barack Obama, former 2016 Olympic Bid Failure,..."
If NBC, CBS and ABC would do this for even 6 months, I would forgive them for the way they treated Sarah during Campaign '08. I mean, it's only fair and balanced! Here is a sample to kick of this new tag line:
"Mr. Obama, former 2016 Olympic bid failure, revved up the White House machinery to aid Chicago's Olympic bid, sending First Lady Michelle Obama and adviser Valerie Jarrett to Denmark leading a delegation that included nearly a half-dozen top administration officials.The White House announced only last week that he would join as well. The widespread perception was that he wouldn't have decided to go unless Chicago was virtually assured of a win.
But the city was cut in the first of three rounds of voting. "I believe it's always a worthwhile endeavor to promote and boost the United States of America and invite the world to come see what we're all about," Mr. Obama said upon returning to Washington Friday. "And we obviously would have been eager to host these Games, but...this nation and our athletes are still very much excited to compete in 2016."
The truth is that Mr. Obama would not have gone to Denmark unless his 'handler' Rahm had all but assured him that he would walk away with the gold. It was in the bank, the Pres was only showing up to accept the award and thank the little people... Wah wah wah wah
The Chicago Sun News along with Jesse Jackson and others are trying real hard to spin this as "Even the magnanimous Obama, in one year, could not overcome the world hatred for George Bush." Instead of, oh I don't know, Chicago wasn't the best bid on the table. That Mr. Obama misunderestimated his chances and walked away humiliated and exposed as a weak leader whose arrogance is the only thing bigger than his spending policy. Sounds right!
Failed 2016 Olympic Bid.. has a nice legacy ring to it...

Yesterday, a terrible thing happened at the UN meeting. Barack Hussein Obama trashed our nation, our history and our previous president, touting himself as the president of the world.
I am so sad..
For the past 8 years the Democrats have criticized our president (Bush) and trashed our Military. They have criticized us for acting alone in Iraq, they have criticized our CIA for 'torturing' extremists in order to obtain life saving information to foil their terror plots.
We have been safe for the last 8 years.. Thank you President Bush.
This disagreement is all fine and well within the borders of our Nation. I think we all understand it is part of our democratic process and a result of the awesome freedom of speech which we enjoy exclusively in America.
But yesterday, Barack Obama laid all of our dirty laundry out for the whole world to pick through. He declared us NOT to be a super power, while at the same time apologizing for our very existence.
The Russians, N. Koreans and Iranians have tested Obama repeatedly in the first 9 months of his presidency and Obama has wilted. Obama cancelled our long range missile shield project that would surely protect us from an Iranian nuclear strike, and Russia smiled, Patted Obama on the head and said "good boy."
We are moving forward with an investigation of CIA interrogation techniques against the wishes and advice of 7 (count em 7) former CIA directors. The former directors unanimously declared that this process would make America 'less safe'.
Are we seeing a theme here? Trash America, make us less safe, demoting our status in the world. Is this Obama's foreign policy?
Let today's headlines speak for themselves:
NEW PUSH FOR GLOBAL CURRENCY
SHOCK VIDEO: School kids taught to praise Obama...
Since Stimulus Passed, Government Has Grown By 25,000 Employees...
DEMS PUSH $4 BILLION BAILOUT FOR POSTAL SERVICE...
U.S. issues $7 trillion debt...
Congressional Hearing on Future of Newspapers Begins...
This is Obama's America but it is OUR country. It would be lame for me to state the obvious mantra that Obama must go..NOW. I only hope it has become obvious to all Americans that trying out the Lefty's ideas because we were tiring of the Republican approach has been a disaster and if we can pull out of this 'nose dive' we are in, we should not do this again in our life time.
Let's speak our voice in the most powerful way possible in 2010 and 2012 to vote out communists and socialists and put in their place Americans who love this country..

"Using the budget reconciliation process to pass health reform and climate change legislation…would violate the intent and spirit of the budget process, and do serious injury to the constitutional role of the Senate."
These are not the words of a Republican or a conservative activist. This is a warning issued on April 2 of this year from the former Democratic Majority Leader in the Senate, Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.). He was referring to a dangerous assault on American freedom as it is protected by the constitutional balance of power – an assault that is being considered by the Obama Administration right now.
"We Pour Legislation into the Senatorial Saucer to Cool It
"The Founding Fathers designed the Constitution and our government to guard against political power grabs by slowing down the process of making laws. They insisted that the Senate had to be a deliberative body to slow down the passions of the House and stop mob rule from destroying freedom. In a famous conversation between the two presidents, Thomas Jefferson is said to have asked George Washington why the Framers had agreed to a second chamber in Congress at the 1787 Constitutional Convention. "Why did you pour that coffee into your saucer?" Washington asked him. "To cool it," said Jefferson. "Even so," said Washington, "we pour legislation into the senatorial saucer to cool it."
The Founders Relied on the Senate to Carefully Consider Before They Commit Us to a New Law
One of the key means by which the Senate slows down the legislative process is through the filibuster. Unlike in the House, in the Senate, even a small group of senators can hold up a bill by threatening to continuously debate it. It takes the votes of three-fifths of the Senate, or 60 senators, to end a filibuster. This means that it effectively takes 60 votes to pass a controversial piece of legislation or nomination. And again, this is for good reason. The Founders looked to the House to more directly reflect the will of the people. They relied on the Senate to take a step back and carefully consider a bill before they commit the American people and our resources to it.
A Revolutionary Act Worthy of a Third World Country
I have taken this brief tour of American constitutional history to make an important point: The Obama Administration clearly has concluded it cannot get a big government health plan through the Senate if they accept the traditional, historic requirement of a 60-vote majority. It is also clear left-wing activists would cheerfully destroy the integrity of the Senate and the freedoms it protects if that is what it takes to get a government-run, bureaucratic health care system which would expand their power and increase the importance of Washington. Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Democratic majority leader, has warned that a failure to get 60 votes would lead him to try to force through a bill with 50 senators and Vice President Joe Biden breaking the tie. Changing one-sixth of the American economy with 50 senators voting yes would be a revolutionary act worthy of a third world country.
Senator Byrd: "Reconciliation was Intended to Adjust Revenue and Spending Levels in Order to Reduce Deficits"
The Obama Administration and Sen. Reid are considering getting around the 60-vote majority rule in the Senate by using a process called "reconciliation." Under reconciliation, just 51 votes are required to pass a bill. Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, whom I quoted at the beginning of this message, has unique authority on reconciliation. Not only is he the author of a remarkable history of the Senate (four volumes published between 1989 and 1995), he was, as he wrote, "one of the authors of the reconciliation process," which was created in 1985. Here is what he said about using reconciliation to pass things like health care reform: "I can tell you that the ironclad parliamentary procedures it authorizes were never intended for this purpose. Reconciliation was intended to adjust revenue and spending levels in order to reduce deficits." Sen. Byrd concluded with this warning: "The Senate cannot perform its constitutional role if senators forgo debate and amendments. I urge senators to jealously guard their individual rights to represent their constituents on such critical matters."
For 20 Years, I Was Told to Be Patient When Conservatives Couldn't Muster 60 Votes.
For 20 years as a member of the House, I was told to be patient when conservative reforms could not muster 60 votes or a conservative nomination could not get 60 votes. For the last decade I was told to be patient when reforms conservatives wanted and personnel conservatives wanted were blocked by the lack of 60 votes in the Senate. Now after a lifetime of sustaining the constitutional role of the Senate, we find that the left wants to suspend the normal constitutional process so they can ram through a gigantic government run health program immediately.
Every American Who Cherishes the Institutions That Have Preserved Our Liberty Will Tell Their Senators to Fight. We are being told the Obama agenda is so important we should destroy the Senate and make it more like the House of Representatives.
This radical action may make sense to President Obama, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and senior strategist David Axelrod, all of whom come from Chicago and are used to seeing the Chicago City Council muscled by a strong mayor on behalf of a machine. However, every American who cherishes freedom and appreciates the institutions that have preserved us from tyranny will be telling their senators to preserve the integrity of the Senate and preserve the protections of American liberty. This fight over process may turn out to be even more important than the fight over the substance of the big government, big bureaucracy, high-tax health bill they want. When both process and policy are wrong there is something very bad going on.

Is this why Barry didn't want to go on FOX News on Sunday? Because he was afraid of being 'Ruded' by them? I have a hard time reconciling this with the Obama we have come to know. When he was operating in Chicago, Mr. Obama would often times employ others, for purposes of plausible deniability, to be rude for him. Falsely accusing his opponents, or lying directly on someone to cast doubt or suspicion on them. This is covert rudity which borders on dastardly...I feel like breaking into spontaneous onomatopoeia ZOT! POW! BAM! But apparently rudeness is Barry's Kryptonite.
Dear Leader never did define the 'rudeness' he was complaining about. Who is he talking about here? Is it Kanye, whom he called a Jack Ass? Was it Joe Wilson, who so rudely spoke the inconvenient truth? Or how about the two kids who exposed the Acorn cheats who helped elect him? Not sure, but one thing is coming into focus for a vast majority of Americans..
..Truth is being rude by concealing itself from ABC, NBC, and CBS (Van Jones, Acorn?!?)
..If someone says truthfully of the President, "The King has no clothes" he is certainly being rude
So anyway you look at it TRUTH IS RUDE

Here are the liberals on the left faux crying and fretting over rhetoric and words used from those on the right. The 'brat cry' as they call it of Representative Joe Wilson, the signs decrying Obama's spending habits during the recent demonstration of Millions er.. uh tens of thousands, but lets forget the hateful speech through the last 8 years where President bush was called stupid, idiot, fascist, racist, liar, liar, Did I mentioned he was called a liar from the same spot on the floor in congress as Joe Wilson (well close to the spot). Ok ok I don't want to be small and bring up facts from the past, smartly applying them to the political climate of today. I can resist. But I have one challenge to the left that I will not back away from...
When Sarah Palin begins campaigning for President in 2012 AND when she wins the republican nomination AND the white house...
We will see whether the left is sincere in their pledge for civility.
My prediction? Once Sarah even begins showing serious popularity and a serious contender for Obama's crown?.. We are going to see the Media and Liberals (greatly humbled in their recent 2010 thrashing) manifest like the guy possessed by Legion in the New Testament. There will be vicious frothing at the mouth, uncontrollable shaking with fits of turrets induced curses. They will also manifest super human strength and perhaps even accomplish something worth while politically in the face of their impending doom.
So we agree, let's be civil. Joe Wilson, though he was technically correct that Mr. Obama was and is a Liar, should not have expressed it in that public venue. It was not civil.
And we agree with Nancy. We should watch the name calling, we need to be civil in our discussion, rational and civil.
And we will be watching you in the next couple of years and we will remind you of your complaint that we are not civil when all Hell breaks loose with Sarah in 2010-2011 coming out to run for the highest office in the land. We hope you will agree that her election will be an historic event!
