Obama in Focus

Barack Obama's Stealth Socialism

A perfect storm of statism is forming, and our economic freedoms are at serious risk.

No Hope, No Change

No Hope for the Iraqis

Dreams of democracy and hopes for a perfect government are now just that – dreams and hopes. We must instead turn our focus to those concrete objectives that are possible to attain ...

Yes, he's talking about Iraq, but can't they also have a dream? What makes his hopes and dreams for America better than the hopes and dreams of Iraqis? They aren't his? Why doesn't he run for president of Iraq and offer them his hope and change, then they wouldn't need those concrete objectives.

There is no reason to believe that more of the same will achieve these objectives ...

And yet, despite his claims to the contrary, he is offering America more of the same - more of the same failed socialist policies and more and higher taxes to try to pay for it - been there, done that.

Who Knew?

We don't have to drill, just inflate your tires and get a tune-up. Brilliant!

But, Of Course

House Majority Whip: Climate Change Hurts Blacks More

Climate change is no longer just an environmental issue. It’s now an issue of race,

Translation: We want a piece of this pie!

Emphasis on "IS"

Government Is Our Problem

Government, Spencer wisely wrote, should not be used to do such impossibly complex things as regulate commerce, educate the people, provide charity or even make roads and railways.

It should be used "simply to defend the natural rights of man -- to protect person and property -- to prevent the aggressions of the powerful upon the weak -- in a word, to administer justice. This is the natural, the original, office of a government. It was not intended to do less: it ought not to be allowed to do more."

He would add "save the planet" to the list of impossibly complex things the government should not be used to do.

Walking is a Privilege, Not a Right

School teaches pupils how to walk

"A Chinese school is running special courses to teach pupils how to walk.

Children who pass written and practical tests receive a walking license,"

Must be hell learning to parallel stand.

Sometimes It's Better Not To Know

"they spotted an animal in their yard Friday morning and went outside to see what it was."

I saw a fox in my yard once, they're cute.

"The fox bit the woman on the left leg and wouldn't let go, so she told her husband to get a gun."

This just keeps getting better.

"The man fired a .22-caliber rifle seven times, killing the animal but also hitting his wife in the lower right leg."

Good thing he didn't get a shotgun.

Moral of the story: Have a gun and know how to use it. Can you imagine if he had to go purchase the gun when that happened. There would have been a 3-day waiting period before he could bring it home. She would have had to endure 3 days of having a fox attached to her leg by sharp teeth. She wouldn't be able to change her pants, unless she cut them off. But then she would have to wear a wrap around skirt, and maybe she doesn't own one. You can't go shopping with no pants on. What would she wear?

No, get the gun before you need it. That's better than having a fox stuck on your leg for 3 days. Oh, and kinda know how to use a gun better than that guy, his wife is never gonna let him forget he shot her in the leg. Nope.

Obama Makes Wrong Choice, Blames Others

Obama camp cites Pentagon in scrapping troop visit

"Obama would have faced criticism if the trip had taken place."

Is that the kind of leader he is? He decides what to do on the basis of whether or not he would be criticized? A strong leader does the right thing regardless of criticism. And he would not have been criticized if he visited the troops privately, sincerely and without fanfare, except perhaps by some of his own military hating supporters.

The right thing to do is the right thing to do and he chose wrong - again.

Breaking All The Rules

Man Joking Around Shoots Self In Head

Authorities say the 20-year-old decided the .25-caliber handgun wasn't working and pointed it to his head as a lark. The gun fired and lodged a bullet in his skull.

Rule #1: Don't point a gun to your head, even if the gun is not loaded.
Rule #2: If you disregard rule #1, don't pull the trigger.
Rule #3: If you disregard rule #2, do it outside.

So, Which Is It?

Report: Lindsay Lohan Hit By Bike In NYC

Actress Lindsay Lohan was hospitalized Saturday morning after a motorcycle nearly hit her near a club on 32nd Street, according to the New York Post.

So, did it hit her or not? Was she hospitalized for a "near miss?" Maybe she was nearly hospitalized.

One World

Andrea Shea King has some very interesting observations about the Obama speech in Berlin.

Did you watch him? This makes my hair stand on end. The Obamessiah a one-world-er. Someone who sees himself as a "citizen of the world", not just of "Goddamn America". He wants to rearrange the walls. Rearrange the world. Rearrange America.

I know there is a spirit in the world that sees mankind as being able to bring about their own salvation. A spirit that wants to bring us all together in order to save us from ourselves. "The more we get together, the happier we'll be." I see it working, it's not a new thing.

Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other (Genesis 11:7).

The impressive thing to me is that man is still haunted today by the lack of unity. He feels the need for it. He feels that if we can only get together, then, with our technological abilities, if we can just cooperate, we can do anything. Is that not the dream that hangs over humanity? If we can merge -- this is the day of the merger, corporations are merging, nations are merging, companies are merging, churches are merging -- if we can just become one great community again, then, with our technological excellence we can master the earth. The dream still endures, but God still scatters. God yet continues the confusion of tongues.--Ray Stedman

I see it again gaining momentum, but I don't know what the end of this push will be. Is this the beginning of the last manifestation of this spirit or just another spike in activity?

I know one thing, I want no part in it.

For it is written, "You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve." (Matthew 4:10)

Destroy America First

Wouldn't it be great if there was a device that would suck CO2 out of the atmosphere and slow or stop global warming? Isn't that the point of reducing carbon emissions, to slow or stop global warming?

Apparently not. Envirnmentalists oppose new CO2 scrubber idea

"Every problem, as they see it, is one way to restrict people's lifestyles, and if you come up with a technological fix that can solve a problem but doesn't require sacrifice and lets us go about our business the way we were before, they're not happy about it, even if it solves the problem."


Obama scraps visit to wounded troops

Obama made his decision out of respect for the servicemen and women,

Obama has never shown respect for our servicemen and women, why start now? He has not shown support for them before, is not showing support for them now and won't even give them the credit they deserve for the great job they are doing in Iraq - even with their hands tied behind their backs by the political correctness police.

I'm sick of writing about this guy already, he shouldn't even be a contender. It's shocking that half of Americans actually want this guy to be the President. Shocking.

One more point: another reason given for cancelling was:

a decision his spokesman said was made because the Democratic presidential candidate thought it would be inappropriate on a campaign-funded journey.

Then, in his speech in Berlin he says:

"Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen ..."

He can give a speech as a citizen but he can't visit wounded troops as a citizen?

Change You Can Count On

Obama Gives Final Burial to 'Undivided Jerusalem' Statement

Barack Obama, the Democratic party's nominee for U.S. President, retracted the statement he made at the AIPAC Convention in June, about the need for Jerusalem to remain Israel's undivided capital. Obama had already qualified the statement the day after he made it, but in a new CNN interview he effectively retracted it, blaming "poor phrasing" and careless syntax.


"Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided," --Barack Obama

Now, not so much:

"You know, the truth is that this was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech. And we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given."

"The point we were simply making was, is that we don't want barbed wire running through Jerusalem, similar to the way it was prior to the '67 war, that it is possible for us to create a Jerusalem that is cohesive and coherent.
" --Barack Obama

I guess this is what he means by change, it's what he does.

In the Shadow of an Empty suit

Obama Faking It

Poor John McCain. He's so last-century. Still living in a world in which deeds matter, policies matter, what you would actually do with the power entrusted to you matters.

Christian Persecution

Here's an interesting post from Vox Popoli: Atheists in denial
Atheists have been murdering Christians almost non-stop around the world for the last 91 years and they have done so with predictable regularity in the majority of countries where they have obtained political dominance. It is all too typical that American atheists are far more concerned about Christian crimes committed against non-atheists in Europe more than 500 years ago than they are about the crimes being committed by avowed atheists against Asian Christians today.

But the persecutions will fail in the end, as they always do, and as Western Christianity continues to decline amidst its sloth, wealth, and apostasy, Eastern Christianity will rise, energized by the bloody test of its faith in the risen Lord Jesus Christ.


The Marxism of Obama,

From his own speech. Read it at Political Pistachio.

The Far Side of Insanity

Television commercials cause global warming

Yes, they are measuring carbon emissions from TV commercials now. What could possibly be next?


From Power Line:

"Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don't have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon."

But Obama is not a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee. Obama just made that up so he could count the committee's action as one of "my deeds."

And from Ed Morrissey:

Once again, Obama wants to claim credit for efforts on which he served no role. Either that, or Obama is such a dilettante that he has no idea on which committees he actually belongs. It could even be both. Neither gives any confidence that Obama has any grasp at all of his own job, let alone the one for which he’s campaigning. Maybe he needed a lot more than three years to get acclimated to national politics.

The Next, ah, hm, King, no, ahh, mmm, Savior, mmm,

What's my line? Fail!

"Let me be absolutely clear," Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, said today at a press conference in Amman, Jordan. "Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under a McCain...administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change."

"You know, it's always a bad practice to say 'always' or 'never.'" — Obama, speaking in Amman today.

Why Democrats don't want to lower gas prices

"If you had to do it over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge:"

"No, because keep in mind that question, you wouldn't ... but keep in mind that kind of hypothetical is very difficult to know hindsight is 20-20 ... later ... but I think that what I'm absolutely convinced of is that at that time we had to change the political debate because the view of the Bush administration at that time was one that I just disagreed with."

Yeah, and President Bush is the idiot. Right. Where are all the jokes about Obama? This isn't the first time he's done this.

Change You Don't Want

Are Facts Obsolete?

In an election campaign in which not only young liberals, but also some people who are neither young nor liberals, seem absolutely mesmerized by the skilled rhetoric of Barack Obama, facts have receded even further into the background than usual.

As the hypnotic mantra of "change" is repeated endlessly, few people even raise the question of whether what few specifics we hear represent any real change, much less a change for the better.

Raising taxes, increasing government spending and demonizing business? That is straight out of the New Deal of the 1930s.

Thoughts on Obamas Speech to Hispanics

This post inspired by this video of Barack Obama giving a speech to Hispanics. I took the quotes from this transcript, though. Not an exact match, but close.

It's about making sure that we have a government that knows that a problem facing any American is a problem facing all Americans.

As all Americans are free to choose how they live there lives, they are also accountable for the consequences of those choices. That is freedom. No American should be obligated, save by their Creator, to try to fix the problems of those who consistently choose wrong. Set the example, show them the right path, but if they continue to choose wrong, that is their choice. Government co-dependency and enabler programs do not help except to prolong or worsen the problem. It is not the governments right to take our money and give it to people who refuse to help themselves.

It's about making sure our government knows that when there's a Hispanic girl stuck in a crumbling school who graduates without learning to read or doesn't graduate at all, that isn't just a Hispanic-American problem, that's an American problem.

That is an American problem, and it's not a problem only for Hispanics. Our government screwels schools are not doing the job. Somewhere along the way - about the time they started embracing socialist ideas - reading, writing and arithmetic became passe and government schools became socialist indoctrination centers. Now we're more concerned with how our students feel. We don't want anyone to feel inadequate so the teaching is dumbed-down so everyone passes - there are no failures. Everyone feels good about themselves. Well, until they graduate, anyway. Solution? Well, let's start with vouchers, but we need a complete overhaul or government out of the teaching business.

When Hispanics lose their jobs faster than almost anybody else, or work jobs that pay less, and come with fewer benefits than almost anybody else, that isn't a Hispanic-American problem, that's an American problem.

Hmm. Are we talking about Hispanics or about illegal immigrants? Hispanics in general seem to be doing pretty good in my neighborhood, even if they don't speak much English. If they speak English fluently, the skies the limit. You start running into problems at the good choices/bad choices line, but that is the same for everyone.

It sounds to me like he is talking about illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants work jobs for less pay and have fewer benefits, yes, of course. That's the life you choose when you enter a country illegally. Even so, they are doing much better than they would be if they stayed in their country of origin. That's why they are here, it wouldn't be worth it otherwise.

Is that an American problem? Well, by not enforcing our laws we have let it become one. The problem needs to be solved in the countries from which they come, the failure is there. It is not an easy problem to solve as the culture of corruption is deeply embedded in, for instance, Mexico. Letting the people continually spill over into America illegally is enabling the problem. Bringing that culture to America and allowing it to overcome our own is not going to help them or us.

When 12 million people live in hiding in this country and hundreds of thousands of people cross our borders illegally each year; when companies hire undocumented workers instead of legal citizens to avoid paying overtime or to avoid a union; and a nursing mother is torn away from her baby by an immigration raid, that is a problem that all of us - black, white, and brown - must solve as one nation.

That is a failure of the country of origin first, and a failure of our country to enforce it's laws. You can't stop it all but it has been allowed to get way out of hand. Companies hiring illegal immigrants? Only if it doesn't cost them more than they get out of it. Fine them or jail them if necessary, and enforce it. That will stop it. If there are no jobs the hundreds of thousands crossing becomes a trickle.

There are those who say we need illegals to do the jobs Americans won't do. Well, those jobs don't pay much of anything and if you want to make the illegals legal and give them benefits, decent pay and overtime, they will be pricing themselves right out of a job. Or the companies will have to raise the price of what they are selling. Or perhaps both.

Mugabe threatens to seize foreign firms over sanctions

The southern African state is struggling with an economic crisis many blame on Mugabe's policies, which has left it with an inflation rate of over 2.2 million percent and chronic shortages of food and other basic needs.

2.2 million percent inflation! I knew it was bad but that number surprises.

Mugabe's government blames the crisis on sabotage by enemies angry over his seizures of white-owned farms for blacks, and has followed up that policy with another controversial law seeking to transfer majority ownership of foreign-owned firms to locals.

You can't build an empire on hate. Eventually, a sane man will have come and to take him out.

Cult of Personality

Generally, personality cults are most common in regimes with totalitarian systems of government, that seek to radically alter or transform society according to revolutionary new ideas. Often, a single leader becomes associated with this revolutionary transformation, and he becomes treated as a benevolent "guide" for the nation, without whom the transformation to a better future cannot occur.

You are seeing a personality cult develop in pretty much full swing before your eyes, if you are not blinded by it. That paragraph describes Obama to a T.

North Korea’s Stacked Deck

In fact, the Kim Jong-il regime is getting exactly what it wants and using American hunger for diplomatic success to split us from our most important regional allies in the process. If this were high-stakes poker, the North Koreans would be biting their lips to hide their smiles at the cards in their hands.

Where is the wisdom? Oh, yeah, God took it with Him when we kicked Him out of our country, the country that we built our ownselves (not) from nothing to the greatest, richest, freest country in the world. I don't care if you're talking about North Korea, Iraq, the economy, energy, crime, anything - it doesn't matter. There is no wisdom. There is no more "Can Do America." You can't do anything for fear of being sued. Or labeled. Don't defend yourself, either. Let the criminals take everything. And if the police accidentally catch the criminal, the courts will let them go.

It's frustrating. I hate to see this country go down the tubes and there is no sign anywhere that it may turn around. None. There are some voices of dissent, but they are just a distraction and ignored by "the wise." Just heard this quote the other day, don't know who said it:

"If you don't change direction, you're going to arrive at where your going."

Simple, but true. Choose the direction wisely.

Sold Down the River

How atheism is being sold to America

Ironically, many of the same human weaknesses and pressures that induce people to accept their religion unthinkingly also lead atheists to embrace evolution's belief system just as mindlessly. Within the current science establishment there are overwhelming academic and professional pressures to embrace evolution – and persecution if one does not. No room for honest inquiry or, Heaven forbid, a good-faith challenge to current orthodoxy.

A vote for any democrat is a vote for failing airlines and collapsing financial institutions and for the shuttering of car plants and large manufacturing.

A growing, vibrant economy needs energy. The Democrats are anti-energy.

It is that simple.

Insanity Sweeping Across the Globe, Hits Germany Hard

Germany plans to give vote to babies

The bill, which has won the cross-party backing of some heavyweight German politicians, would wipe away decades of "exclusion" and "discrimination" against minors, according to its supporters.

Still, this has got to be a joke or just something Germany's version of Dennis Kucinich dreamed up. It can't have a chance of passing.

If the bill gets adopted, babies will have the same powers to voice their opinion on government handling of macro-economic performance in a global downturn enjoyed by their parents.

Toddlers will be able to take a stand on issues such as whether German armed forces should be deployed abroad.

Should I take solace in the fact that it won't pass - this time?

Climate Change Delusion

PSYCHIATRISTS have detected the first case of "climate change delusion".

But not the last.

"A 17-year-old man was referred to the inpatient psychiatric unit at Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne with an eight-month history of depressed mood . . . He also . . . had visions of apocalyptic events."

(So have Alarmist of the Year Tim Flannery, Profit of Doom Al Gore and Sir Richard Brazen, but I digress.)

"The patient had also developed the belief that, due to climate change, his own water consumption could lead within days to the deaths of millions of people through exhaustion of water supplies."

But never mind the poor boy, who became too terrified even to drink. What's scarier is that people in charge of our Government seem to suffer from this "climate change delusion", too.

Islamists' Catch-22

Let’s be clear: The Islamists are trying to establish a kind of Catch-22: If you point out that they seek to impose a barbaric, repressive and seditious Shariah Law, you are insulting their faith and engaging in unwarranted, racist and bigoted fear-mongering. On the other hand, pursuant to Shariah, you must submit to that theo-political-legal program. If you don’t, you can legitimately be killed. It is not an irrational fear to find that prospect unappealing. And it is not racist or bigoted to decry and oppose Islamist efforts to bring it about

Berlin hails ex-policeman who decapitated Hitler waxwork

The decapitation of Adolf Hitler by a left-wing activist drew widespread applause from German critics and politicians yesterday who felt that his wax dummy should never have been put on display in Berlin.

One commentator hailed it as "a successful assassination attempt – sadly 75 years overdue".

Yeah, he's already dead. Talk about meaningless gestures. Meanwhile the Hitler wannabees around the world are free to threaten, torture (real torture), maim, starve, assassinate, and murder people at will. Their heads must stay, though. Killing them would be EVIL.

Another Fine Mess

McCain: Pump this!

The irony is the only people McCain can count on to vote for him are the very Republicans he despises – at least those of us who can get drunk enough on Election Day to pull the lever for him. In fact, we should organize parties around the country where Republicans can get drunk so they can vote for McCain. We can pass out clothespins with his name as a reminder and slogan-festooned vomit bags. The East Coast parties can post the number of drinks necessary for the task to help the West Coast parties.

Second Amendment

Why do we 'keep and bear arms'?

Dictators throughout history sought to disarm their citizenries in order to impose power:

Vladimir Lenin said, "One man with a gun can control 100 without one."

Mao Zedong said, "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."

Josef Stalin said: "We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns?"

Adolf Hitler said: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so."

And besides that we need protection from UFO's. :-)

Another UFO

UFOs spotted by Navy engineer above the M5 motorway.

He said the unidentified flying object flew for up to three minutes above junction 21 of the M5, near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

And he's the only one who saw it?

That's Gotta Hurt

Man struck in the head by lightning and lives.

He lay unconscious for about an hour before awakening to the buzz of mosquitoes in his ears and cold rain slapping his body.

His teeth hurt. He couldn't move. It wasn't until he smelled his own burned flesh and hair that it hit him: He had been struck by lightning.

Dennis Prager Explains

Why I Support John McCain

My bottom line is this: The gulf between John McCain and conservatives is miniscule compared to the gulf between John McCain and Barack Obama. This is true regarding virtually every issue of significance to America. The America that a President Barack Obama would shape, with the help of a Democratic Congress and a liberal Supreme Court, would be very dissimilar from the America shaped by a President John McCain.

I'm just about there with him. I don't want to be.

Obama site urges: 'Revolution' against U.S. 'oppressive' regime

Yes, it is on the Obama website.

Although you can't control who supports you, you can control who does so on your own website.

Close Encounters

What's with all the UFO sightings lately?

And how come nobody ever gets any pictures of them?

"We ran outside but at first we couldn't see anything -- it was really dark and we could hear the sound.

"The sound was horrible. It sounded like something was going past.

"We thought it was a jet. I saw what I thought at first was the evening star, the first star you usually see at night.

"But then we saw three red lights in the distance, and the sound kept getting louder.

"The ground felt like it was shaking, so we ran inside and shut the doors.

"My nephew and niece were looking out through curtains. The thing came closer, circled around the basketball courts and then came so close above our house.

"The kids at the basketball courts ran -- two girls stood there looking towards the sky.

"They tried to see what it was but all they could see was this bright red light in the pitch black."

Ms Dixon said the UFO hovered above the homes for what seemed like a couple of hours.

She said at one stage the phone rang, but went dead when she tried to answer it.

"Then the light in the house became so bright, it was like we were sitting in a football stadium," she said.

"After a while, after the things all disappeared... I think it was about 11pm by then.

"We went outside and were just sitting around drinking tea and talking about it all. The kids were put to bed.

It goes on to say they were scared but come on, they went outside and were sitting around drinking tea after something like that? And nobody got any pictures? Nobody?

After that you don't just put the kids to bed and brew some tea. Something is strange in Australia.
