Obama Calls It “Selfishness” That People Don’t Want Taxes Raised

October 31st, 2008 · 3 Comments

Political Punch. “John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic,” Obama continued. “You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness.” So we’ve have Biden call people who don’t want higher taxes “unpatriotic” and now Obama calls us “selfish”.  I think Biden should give more […]

Barack Obama – He May Not Be A Socialist But He Sure Sounds Like One

October 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Shame, Cubed by Bill Whittle on National Review Online. Speaking on a call-in radio show in 2001, you can hear Senator Obama say things that should profoundly shock any American — or at least those who have not taken the time to dig deeply enough into this man’s beliefs and affiliations. Please read the above […]

California – Vote ‘Yes’ on Propositiom 8

October 26th, 2008 · 3 Comments

It was brought to my attention today that if Prop. 8 does not pass it is very likely that priests, pastors and other clergy that refuse to marry homosexual couples most likely will be subject to lawsuits. It has already happened against Catholic hospitals with the birth control issue. It has already happened for Christian […]

Numero Uno Reason to Vote for John McCain – He’s Commander-in-Chief

October 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

HT from National Review. McCain Gets My Vote by Charles Krauthammer on National Review Online. The case for McCain is straightforward. The financial crisis has made us forget, or just blindly deny, how dangerous the world out there is. We have a generations-long struggle with Islamic jihadism. An apocalyptic, soon-to-be-nuclear Iran. A nuclear-armed Pakistan in […]

Thomas Sowell: Record vs. Rhetoric

October 18th, 2008 · No Comments

Thomas Sowell: Record vs. Rhetoric. Sarah Palin has had executive experience– and the White House is the executive branch of government. We don’t have to judge her by her rhetoric because she has a record. We don’t know what Barack Obama will actually do because he has actually done very little for which he was […]

Obama’s Definition of Tax Cuts

October 13th, 2008 · No Comments

For Obama, Govt. Handouts = “Tax Cuts”. Rather, Barack has simply redefined the meaning of “tax cut.” He’s counting refundable “tax credits” — that is, government handouts — as “tax cuts,” and planning to subsidize them by sharp income tax increases on “the wealthy.” Bottom line is that Barack Obama wants to give tax credits […]

Worst Part of the Debates – The “Undecideds”

October 8th, 2008 · No Comments

I’ve truly had enough of these phoney undecideds that the networks focus on.  They gather all these folks that supposedly haven’t made up their mind about the election.  Most of these people must be frauds as the way they answer questions reveal that they really can’t be undecided.  The way the make a decision based […]

Doyers Win

NLDS Game 3: Dodgers 3, Cubs 1 – Inside the Dodgers. Fortunately, I was quite wrong about the Cubs but my point about Rafael Furcal was spot on.  The Dodgers continue their amazing play over the last month and are now waiting to play either the Phillies or Brewers.  I’m really pulling for the Brewers […]
