Dog Whistles and Other Such Nonsense

I have enjoyed the spin on the left about the convention this week.  The outright falsehoods that are going on about the auto plant in Wisconsin has been quite amusing.  The video and newspaper reports that prove that the plant was indeed still making cars when President Obama took the oath of office doesn't seem to deter them.  I guess Romney's underwear is truly magic since the videos dated long before he choose Paul Ryan as his running mate.  

The outright disgusting behavior that was shown towards Mia Love and Condi Rice was very sad,  but even worse, it was expected.  The cries of the female version of Uncle Tom was heard loud and clear.  We get it, you don't like any person of color being conservative.  They are not allowed to think for themselves.  They must follow your vision, because after all, you are the party of tolerance.  

The left got their pants all twisted by Ann Romney's line of 'I have a real marriage'.  She wasn't talking about gay marriage.  She was talking about the same thing that every other married couple knows to be true, marriage is work.  The movies and the fairy tales don't tell you that when you are growing up.  She had five children to raise with a husband who travels.  She has dealt with real tragedy in her life.  The loss of a child, numerous health problems in breast cancer and the knowledge that she will be dealing with MS for the rest of her life.  She has come out the other side of those things with her marriage in tact.  That is not an easy thing to do.  The rates of divorce in our country prove that.  

Chris Matthews schooled me this week on the words that I am not allowed to use.  Chicago means racist.  Golf means racist.  All that secret code, oh my.  Al Sharpton has decided that the fact that Romney has a proven and clear record of putting minorities and women in positions of power and authority is a negative.  I am not even going to try and figure that out.  In his world up is down and black is white.  The only people who can legitimately put minorities is someone who shares his world view.  If not, I guess they are just pandering.  Some have gone as far to say that proves that they are racists.  Paul Ryan's college girlfriend who happens to be black is also somehow proof that he really doesn't like black people.  You figure it out, it just makes my head hurt.  

But this has to be one of my favorites of the week.  

 But that line about how when America needs to accomplish something great, "you need an American"? Dog whistle to the birthers?
Now, take a look at what he actually said:
Tonight that American flag is still there on the moon. And I don't doubt for a second that Neil Armstrong's spirit is still with us: that unique blend of optimism, humility and the utter confidence that when the world needs someone to do the really big stuff, you need an American.
She is just pulling this crap out of thin air.  He didn't say when America needs to accomplish something, he said when the world does.  He was talking about American Exceptionalism.  Something that Maria Cordona obviously cannot even begin to understand.  The left doesn't see America in the same vision that I and others on the right do.  They just don't.  They don't view our place in the world as something special.  We are just one of many to them.  We should be more like Europe to them.  Why they don't just pick up and move to Europe is something that I don't understand.  You like it there so much, pack your bags.  No one is stopping you.  I will help you pack.

Socialism is as Socialism Does

Ronald Reagan taught us, “How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”  


Barack Obama’s mentor as a young man was communist party member Frank Marshall Davis.  As a community organizer he was a follower and promoter of the communist fellow-traveler Saul Alinsky’s methods and goals.  As a professional in Hyde Park he associated with socialist radicals such as Bill Ayers.  As an up-and-coming Chicago Politician he attended the church of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, an outspoken proponent of the socialist Black Liberation Theology. As president he appointed communist Van Jones to be one of his many Czars.  Mr. Obama says he is not a socialist.  However, simple logic tells us if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck you can be relatively certain it’s a duck.


Mr. Obama has told us that he seeks to be a transformational president like his idol FDR.  He was bold enough to tell us just days before the election in 2008 that he would fundamentally transform America.  In just one term he has accomplished much along the way to changing us from what we have always been into what the Progressives have always wanted us to be.

How has Barak Obama transformed us?  Into what is he transforming us?  A look at his impressive *list of firsts as president of these United States points in the direction he is herding us:

·      First President to have a Social Security number from a state where he has never lived

·      First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States

·      First President to violate the War Powers Act

·      First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico

·      First President to require that all Americans purchase a product from a third party as a condition of citizenship

·      First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and then joke that shovel ready wasn’t quite as shovel ready as he thought 

·      First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters

·      First President to by-pass Congress and implement laws such as the Dream Act and Cap-n-Trade through executive fiat

·      First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees

·      First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (GM) to resign

·      First President to terminate America's ability to put a man in space

·      First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation

·      First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present

·      First President to send the families of fallen service members a form letter signed with an auto-pen

·      First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it (DOMA)

·      First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke-out on the reasons for their rate increases

·      First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state it is allowed to locate a factory

·      First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN)

·      First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal)

·      First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-Corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case

·      First President to appoint 45 czars to his office

·      First President to golf more than 100 times separate times in his first three and a half years in office

·      First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records

·      First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing to earn it

·      First President to go on multiple global “apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours

·      First President to go on 16 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayer

·      First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife

·      First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense

·      First President to publicly read from the Quran & tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth

·      First President to recite the Muslim call to prayer in perfect Arabic

·      First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance

·      First President to side with a foreign nation over one of America’s 50 states (Mexico vs. Arizona)


Mr. Obama is leading us from being the first among nations to being just another vote in the United Nations.  Now there’s a level playing field for you.  And now it’s time for another election, some say our most important, some say perhaps our last.

In many ways this election cycle is refreshing.  For generations the Progressives have pretended to be something they are not to win elections.  They have pretended to be dedicated to the American dream of personal liberty, economic freedom and the belief that America was different from other nations, that as the world’s first and most enduring modern experiment in a republic based on limited government we were exceptional.  Although the policies of the Progressives have always been at odds with this assumed identity at least every election cycle they would tip their hat to the America of our fathers and portray themselves as a Thomas Jefferson or an Andrew Jackson. 

Therefore, 2012 is shaping up to be the election where the Progressives cast aside their mask and run as who they are: the American version of socialism promising to tax the rich and spread the wealth around, from each according to their ability to each according to their need. 

If Mr. Obama wins re-election on this platform the Progressives will finally have their chance to give Americans the same kind of cradle-to-grave utopia the happy people of Russia, China, North Korea, and Hitler’s Germany have had the fortune to endure.  If Mr. Obama wins re-election espousing the true intentions of the Progressives, to change the constitution from a rock solid foundation for freedom into a living document that is a dead letter, he will succeed at his vow to fundamentally transform America.

He will fundamentally transform the dreams of our fathers for a land of liberty and opportunity into the dreams of his father who was a pro-communist social engineer and America will become just another country trying to build heaven on earth by plundering some to benefit others.


As to his  utopian beliefs and aspirations President Obama has said, “I am confident we can create a Kingdom right here on Earth”


President Reagan also told us, “Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it, and hell where they already have it.”


*Lists of Mr. Obama’s firsts are found numerous places.  The sources referenced for each first are merely representative of the many available for each.

Clint Eastwood To Speak At Republican Convention

If this is true, this is awesome. From US News:
A close friend of Mitt and Ann Romney confirmed to Whispers Wednesday night that Clint Eastwood is indeed Thursday's mystery speaker at the Republican National Convention.

"It's him," said Paul Gilbert, who has known the Romney family for nearly a decade and served as the GOP presidential candidate's Arizona state chair. "I can confirm that, 100 percent."

Eastwood, a long-time Republican and former mayor of his hometown in California, Carmel, endorsed Romney earlier this year. At an August fundraiser, Eastwood said he believed Romney would "restore a decent tax system" to create "fairness."

Liberal Racism Explodes Against Condi Rice: "House Negro" and Sex Object

Unfortunately, as Mia Love and Ann Romney have found out, the Left is not kind to strong Republican women. Instead, the vitriol and ignorance that many on the Left have shown make it clear who is propagating a 'war on women.'

Take Condoleezza Rice, the daughter of sharecroppers born into segregation. Impeccably educated and motivated, Ms. Rice became the National Security Advisor and Secretary of State. This would be nearly impossible just two generations ago.

But to liberals, she's still nothing but a 'house negro' and not even black:

Or a white man who is certainly not racist at all using the N-word:

Or a sex object:

Or a circus act:

Or a racist:

Who is the Republican Mystery Speaker?

By now you may have heard that there is a slot at the RNC convention where the speaker is to be determined. There's been a lot of speculation about it, and it appears that there are some options floating around.

Apparently Clint Eastwood is headed to the RNC, though it's not clear if he's the speaker.

Our source -- who spoke on the condition of anonymity -- could not confirm if Eastwood is, in fact, the intriguing "to-be-announced" speaker, but stated unequivocally that the Dirty Harry star will arrive in Florida late on Wednesday or early on Thursday, and will return to southern California on Friday.

That would be one hell of a speech.

Yahoo News Fires David Chalian After Anti-Republican, Racist Comment

From Politico:
Yahoo News has fired Washington bureau chief David Chalian after he was caught on a hot-mic during an online video broadcast today saying that Mitt Romney and his wife Ann had no problem with African Americans suffering as a result of Hurricane Isaac, a source familiar with the situation tells POLITICO.

"They're not concerned at all. They're happy to have a party with black people drowning," Chalian said during the ABC News/Yahoo News webcast, in reference to the fact that the GOP convention in Tampa is taking place as Hurricane Isaac makes landfall on the north Gulf coast.

The conservative media watchdog organization NewsBusters first posted audio of Chalian's remarks, but referred to him as an ABC News employee (and offered slightly inaccurate transcription). ABC News spokesperson Julie Townsend informed the organization that Chalian was with Yahoo.

Chalian and Yahoo News spokesperson Kristen Morquecho did not respond to requests for comment; Townsend also did not respond to a request for comment.

Liberals Call for Death of Ann Romney; "I Want to Murder Ann Romney Right Now"

There are just things that are beyond the pale of human decency. Even in a political atmosphere where liberals often act with impunity for their racist, hateful comments, the actions progressives took last night and this morning are disgusting, even for the Left.

Ann Romney is a wife, a mother, a cancer survivor, and currently has MS. She also supports and loves her husband. What does she get for voicing her support? Death threats and those calling for her to die. As you might expect, liberals expect her to assume a stereotypical role of either being quiet or being a brainless leftist. But calling for her to kill herself? It's a new low for progressives, even though it seemed they could not go any lower.

Here are just a few examples.

"I Want to Murder Ann Romney Right Now:"
"Go kill yourself:"
"Needs to die:"
"Kill yourself:"
"B****, kill yourself:"
These people are simply disgusting, no matter your political stripe.  So I ask you, if you are a liberal, do these people really represent you?

Finding the Right Flag

Expressing pride is one of the top ways that you can how how much you care about something. In this economic downturn, being able to show off your pride in your country, town, or state is a way for ordinary people to get involved in politics and their own history. Even better, if you need a flag for an event or a prop, you can find flags of other countries, flags saluting the military, customized flags, or other flags that can get you exactly what you need. Even better, if you choose the right company to get you your flags, you can also find many supplies for your flag to keep it waving proudly.

This can be the case if you are looking for state flags. If you want a flag for your home, office, or a museum, you should look at the fifty different choices out there and see which size and price is the best for you and your situation. Even better, you can get high quality flags that you can buy in any quantity in case you need a spare or want to give it as a gift to a friend or to a loved one. With so many options, you can make sure that you are ready for your next event in style.

The Arrogant and the Super Arrogant
Why Obama will never be a Dictator

Let me tell you about the arrogantly powerful.  They are different
from you and me.  They were given everything in life, they have
earned nothing - - and it does something to them;  makes them
soft where we are hard, cynical where we are trustful, and unless
you are one of the arrogantly powerful, they are difficult to
understand.  They think, deep in their hearts that they are better
than we are, because we struggle for a living and they do not.
Even when they are voted out of power, they still think they are
better than we are.  They are different.
                                              apologies to F. Scott Fitzgerald

There are many groups in America who fear that if  barry
hussein gets a second term, that he will turn into a dictator,
and do to America what dictators have done to their countries
for thousands of years.

Not to worry, it will never happen. 

No matter how arrogant little barry has been all his life, it is
nothing compared to the arrogance of power which the office
of president has bestowed upon him.  That he would like to rule
America, and the world is evidently painful to watch.  That he
would like to declare himself king is pathetically clear, but for
that, he has chosen the wrong country.

The only despotic position left for his aspirations of self glorification
is that of a dictator.  That strata of demonic behavior is so far beyond
his reach, he should just fuggetaboutit.  Why?  Because there are
certain criteria necessary to attain the office of dictator.

Barry Hussein has none of the characteristics every historical dictator
has exhibited, which is why he will never be more than he is today --
a delusional, ego-maniac boy child.  Even if he steals this election like
he stole the last one, he will never be more than a pedantic, shallow
political imposter.

Reason One:  he has no military experience.  That he is masquerding
as commander-in-chief, and claims to have directed military ops,
(haha hoho hehe)  Barry has not one second of military experience.
This citizen/imposter is not American enough to be a draft dodger.
Dodging the draft means you have to have some beliefs,  unless
 you were just a coward and decided to go to college to be a
priest, preacher or doctor.  Like there is something more important
about those careers than defending your country.  But, those who
cowardly deferred,  to this day still hold their manhood cheap, and
still believe themselves accursed because when their country called
them, they tucked tail and ran.

And, little Barry has no junta.  He has no following of military leaders,
truth be told, the military cannot stand him.  No one, not even barry
hussein can be a dictator all by his little self.  Who has he got?  Some
shallow, insignificant, effeminate groupies he calls zzars?  A few
goons?  Those dummies would turn on him in a second, steal his
watch and wallet and leave him in a sad little pile.

Reason Two:  The Japanese Internment Camps.  Americans still
remember what it was like for an entirely innocent segment of the
American population to be rounded up, imprisoned and have their
property and businesses (yes, they did build their businesses, barry)
stolen by an oppressive federal government.  Those scenes are
still familiar, and will not be able to be repeated by some skinny,
ESPN brained community scamanizer.

Reason Three:  The Holocaust.   We have seen the evil, ungodly
murders of millions of Jewish people by a demon gone mad, and we
cannot and will not succumb to such a devilish policy, not in this
lifetime, not without a fight which no aspiring dictator can ever
win.  Homeland "Security" can buy another billion or two rounds
of ammo if they want; if it comes to that, they will need it.

Reason Four:  The War of Northern Aggression.  The great people
of the Southern States have never forgotten the atrocities against a
gentle and civil people, brought about by a too strong central
government.  The war of northern agression is as fresh as peach pie
and magnolia blossoms in their minds, and at the first intimation
of another like blitzkreig from the north, the patriots of an entire
country, North, South, East and West will take up arms and defend
a free country.

Reason Five:  The Media.  Does the liar-in-chief actually think he
can shut down the media?  Using the media for his own lies and his
own purposes is one thing.  Shutting them down to quiet them is a
horse of a different color.  Getting his selfish way on TV is not the
same as telling the networks and cable news "I am barry hussein
and I am shutting you down."   Hahahahaha  -- see how that one
goes over, barry.

Reason Six:  The Internet.   The bloggers, tweeters, the people
behind the real stories about the lies on network news, do you
actually think we will stop communicating?  If we have to use
smoke signals, we will not go away.

Reason Seven:  Guns, Guns, Guns.  To Americans, the Second
Amendment is not just some faded ink on some old paper.  It is
law, it stands as law, and millions of Americans will give their
lives, fortunes and sacred honor to prove to any usurper/dictator
wanna be, that it is not just ink.  The Second Amendment may
as well have been signed in blood.  There was a gun behind
every blade of grass in 1941, now there are probably a dozen
guns behind every blade of grass.  No one has a lawn mower
big enough to mow that yard.  Anyone dumb enough to try is
in for an unpleasant surprise.   Molon labe!!  Boom.

Reason Eight:  1620, Pilgrims, the New World.  This country
called America has been free since 1620.  Grab your calculator
and figure it out;  three hundred and ninety two years of freedom.
Freedom at home, freedom at work, freedom at play, freedom
at church, freedom everywhere.  Americans don't just like
freedom;  Americans don't just believe in freedom  -- we
live and breathe freedom.  The only idiot stupid enough to try
to take that freedom away must have been born in some
impoverished country where the streets are sewers, poverty
is the norm, work is forbidden and the people would just lay
down and die if some idiotic despot told them to.  Good luck
with that one, barry, it won't work in a real country.

Reason Nine:  God.  It might come as a shock to an arrogant
world leader, but there is a God in Heaven who looks down
on earth and says, "Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also
reap."  No matter how many aliases barry conjures up, no
matter how many social security numbers he has, no matter
how many records he has sealed, God is not fooled.  Everyone
will be weighed in the balances, even wannabe dictators. 
Barry, you think murdering babies here and around the world
is going to go un-noticed by the very God who created babies?
All of the arrogantly powerful must stand before God, even
barry hussein.

It is our fondest hope out here in real America that barry will
lose in November and lose big.   He can then go back to
Chicago and rabble-rouse and community organize and live
on past memories of what he thought was a real boring job,
except for the gourmet food, the vacations, the golf and the

Should he steal the election again, Chicago style,  he will
continue to be the absolute worst excuse for a president
this country will ever see.  One thing he will never be is --
a dictator.

Obama Campaign Mass Emails People Gifs of Obama Touching People

The Obama campaign is very busy sending people odd messages. Yesterday, the President himself described his fear of Mitt Romney. Today, a new mass email shows Mr. Obama touching people and their hands.

Under the subject "High five," the message is just several gifs of President Obama trying (and mainly failing) to high five a group of supporters.

Honestly, I don't know if the President knows what a high five is. It just looks like he's trying to squeeze children's hands sensually:
Or simply missing every hand he's trying to hit:
And naturally, the campaign pleads for money.  Obviously Mr. Obama would like a "high five," but he'd prefer your money.

Here's the email in its entirety (gifs included):

The Hammer on the New Poll Showing Romney Ahead

The god Particle I Don’t Think So

Arrogance is a funny thing. Not Ha Ha funny, but funny none-the-less.  I was watching one of America’s leading physicists the other day, a man made famous by his co-authorship of String Theory and made popular by his ability to make people without a scientific education believe they understand what he’s talking about.  He repeatedly made the statement that today physicists understand 99.9%of how the Universe works and that the .01% that was missing is the never before seen but previously postulated Higgs Boson particle popularly known as the god particle.

The reason he was on a popular news show was because other scientists in Switzerland had announced that they had found the ever elusive god particle by producing a mini-Big Bang in the world’s largest cyclotron by smashing atoms together.  The Big Bang is what atheist scientists have to call creation because all their evidence proves that the universe, just started.  They have come to believe that at one moment there was nothing and then a split nano-second later there was everything.  Since they find it impossible to believe that God merely said, “Let there be” and it was they instead have mentally manufactured the Big Bang Theory, which along with the Theory of Evolution is taught to every school child as if it were established fact. 

The Big Bang Theory goes like this: once upon a time there was nothing except the tiniest of points that contained the essence of everything.  They even say there was no time because time itself was nonexistent before the Big Bang.  Then spontaneously this tiniest of points exploded and in a flash it expanded into gases and stars and planets and galaxies.  Using rooms full of chalk boards these highly educated scientists prove that all of everything came from something: a teeny tiny point of compressed something. 

They piously tell us all their observations prove this is so.  All their chalk filled blackboards prove this is so.  All their experiments prove this is so.  And now after they have discovered 99.9% of the truth the production of the missing god particle absolutely proves it is so.  Just give them a little more time and they will be able to tell us exactly how the universe created itself.

How nice.

Luckily there are these eloquent popularizers who are able to act as a verbal interface allowing the scientifically and mathematically challenged masses peek behind the curtain.  It’s a good thing because it is our tax money that pays for all their orbiting telescopes, cyclotrons, and blackboards.  And since the majority of us are Christians who believe God created the world it’s convenient to have someone to explain to us why all the money we spend proves we are actually deluded provincials with a quaint faith in an unseen Father who created and upholds everything with His word, wrote a book to tell us about it, and then sent His only Son to die at our hands for our redemption. 

Now that is money well spent.  Pay billions and billions to have scientific shamans to tell us that what we believe are fables and what they believe is fact.  Maybe we should spend our billions on magic beans instead, and then we could climb up to heaven and find out what really happened.  Or maybe we should build a tower that reaches into heaven so our priest-king-scientist could give God a physical, and then tell us all about why He isn’t there.

Our super smart highly educated and well financed scientists tell us they don’t operate on faith; instead they operate on logic and objective evidence.  Yet when you examine their chain of thought and peer into their evidence it is a fabric of conjectures based upon one leap of faith after another.  They have convinced themselves the air castles they have constructed are more than science fiction, but why should we believe them?  They do sound sincere and they do act as if they know what they are talking about, but so does the flim-flam man who tries to sell us the Brooklyn Bridge or the politician who tells us they can manage the debt and give everyone everything.

For one thing their very confidence that they have the universe 100% or even 99.9% figured out ought to tell us these wizards aren’t ever going to really give us a heart, or courage, and certainly not a brain.  They may give us a medal or a degree and then explain how they are just what they promised when they aren’t but they can’t deliver on the real thing.  When Toto finally pulls the curtain back will we then realize we have spent billions upon billions to supposedly prove fantasies labeled as truth when we have had the truth all along: God created the universe, and we are here because of Him, in Him, and for Him.  That may be too simplistic for the wizards to believe but their flights of fancy ought to be too fantastic for us to swallow.

For instance all these grand theories of everything never tell us where the incredibly compressed point comes from.  They never tell us how long the point was in a state of perfect equilibrium just hanging there in the nothing.  They never tell us what would have caused the point to explode.  Yet they try to tell us they have it all figured out. Go figure.

I find it comical that believing in an all-knowing all-powerful God who created everything and everyone is too hard for people to believe but when a highly educated, highly financed, and media savvy spokes model tells us that everything created itself millions of people nod their heads and stand in line to give them more money for more experiments and blackboards so that we can expand our knowledge to what 110%?

This all reminds me of two things.


There have been other times when societies and their wizards thought they knew everything.

A man named Ptolemy once proved that the whole universe revolves around the earth.  Eventually a complicated model was constructed by dedicated mathematicians and philosophers to demonstrate and prove how it worked.  Galileo among others was arrested, tried, and convicted for saying the Earth revolves around the Sun.  Once the alchemists knew there was a philosopher’s stone that would turn iron into gold.  At one point the leading lights of science knew the world was flat while Columbus knew he could sail from Europe to Asia in a straight line.  In the 1890s scientists assured us we knew everything about everything.  Now the Big Bang explains it all and the god particle is the key to understanding how nothing became everything.


All these theories of everything that eliminate God remind me of the story about a scientist who when asked where his computer came from didn’t know so he said, “There was a pile of parts laying in a junk yard for billions of years and one day they were struck by lightning and out popped this computer.”  This scientist had a blackboard full of equations that proved he was right.  He had spent billions of tax dollars conducting of experiments that proved he was right.  And he sounded very convincing when he explained it all. His theory was accepted and taught in all the schools, so now our children can come home and tell us where computers come from.

And the cow jumped over the moon.

It also reminds me of the story about a scientist who said to God, “You’re not so much.  I’ve figured out how to create life in my laboratory.”

“You have?” said God.

“Yes I have and I’m willing to have a competition to prove I can create life just like you,” said the scientist as he wrote two rooms full of equations to show God how much he knew.

“Okay,” said God as He stooped down picked up some dirt and started fashioning a man.

The scientist picked up some dirt and started pouring it from one test tube to another when God smiled and said, “Hey!  Get your own dirt.”

Even if we can prove how something happened does that tell us why?  Since every chain of events has to have a beginning our wizards have had to come face-to-face with “In the beginning.”  However, without faith they can’t see the forest for the tree.  So instead of giving God the glory for his creation they try to construct creation without a creator, which reminds me of the atheist who knows there is no heaven and prays there is no hell.

I love to listen to the wizards.  I read their books and watch their shows.  However, I march to the beat of a different drummer, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Obama in New Email: I'm Scared that this is "The End"

In a new mass-email to campaign supporters, President Barack Obama voiced concern over the surge in fundraising that Republican Mitt Romney has put together.

"We're getting outspent by wide margins in critical battleground states," he explains, "and what we do about that today could be the difference between winning and losing on November 6th."

The email, titled "The end?," further trembles, "It's August 23rd. And 75 days from now, I'll either be looking at another four years in the White House -- or the end of this opportunity."
President Obama
Then, naturally, at the end the President then asks for money to defeat Mitt Romney, who, according to the email, does not want a "secure retirement" for seniors.

You can read the entire email below:
From: Barack Obama (
Subject: The end?
Date: Thursday, August 23, 2012, 11:23 AM


It's August 23rd. And 75 days from now, I'll either be looking at another four years in the White House -- or the end of this opportunity.

I know what's at stake for the parents worrying about health care, the kids who need help to go to college, and the seniors who want a secure retirement.

But we're getting outspent by wide margins in critical battleground states -- and what we do about that today could be the difference between winning and losing on November 6th.

So as we near one of the last fundraising deadlines of this campaign, I'm asking you to pitch in $3 or whatever you can right now:

Thanks for all you do,

Thanks for all I do? You're welcome, Barack. I plan on voting against you.

Sarah Palin calls for Third Party race for Missouri Senate

But a Libertarian is already on the ballot

by Eric Dondero

Sarah Palin ought to know better. After all, she was backed by the Libertarian Party of Alaska in her bid for Governor in 2006. She sought their endorsement, and even publicly thanked the Party for their support in front of hundreds at the victory celebration on election night.

Her husband Todd is a longstanding member of the Alaska Independence Party.

This morning all over the right blogs, headlines, "Palin wants Sarah Steelman to run as 3rd party candidate against Akin."

A couple problems: Missouri law won't allow Steelman to run as a "sore loser." Also, it's too late to file for another third party to be on the ballot.

But the Libertarian Party already has a ballot line. Young Rand Paulish Jonathan Dine is the Libertarian candidate for Senate.

This is not a McCaskill versus Akin race. This is a McCaskill versus Akin versus Dine race. Dine was even polling 5% last week in PPP.

The Libertarian Party can act as sort of a fall-back when Republicans screw up. And this by all definitions is a major screw-up.

Why not get a pledge from Dine to "caucus" with the GOP if elected. Certainly he'd be comfortable in the same caucus as Senator Rand Paul.

The Republican Party needs to get smart. Time to back Libertarian Jonathan Dine for US Senate - Missouri.

Akin Must Go

Todd Akin needs to go.

He's embarrassed himself and the GOP with his thoughtless and reckless comments. He has until the end of the day to make up his mind and get out before there are further complications. If he leaves by Tuesday at midnight, the GOP can pick a successor to run for Claire McCaskill's seat. If not, he would either stay in the race or if he withdrew later, would need a judge's settlement to put another person on the ballot.

So Representative Todd Akin-- you want to beat Claire McCaskill, one of the worst Senators of the last six years? Well, you still have a good chance-- if you're out of the race. The Missouri GOP can take it from here.

Todd Akin needs to go.

Finding the Best in Web Design

Today's economy is increasingly based on the web. There are many different reasons to become more involved with the internet. Compared to decades past, the internet has opened many possibilities for faster, easier, and smarter communication and business practices. If you are reading this right now, then you are obviously already familiar with the web and can appreciate its growing nature. Why not get involved in a way that can both contribute to the web and also help yourself or a business or organization that you may be involved in.

Having a competitive presence can take many things. A formal, crisp resume can help employers get to know what you have to offer if you are looking for a job. Advertisement can help spread your product or your ideas to a larger group of people. Having a business plan that is prepared for the future is one of the best things that you can do to plan ahead. You have to put yourself in the shoes of the person you are trying to relay information to-- is your plan going to get the point across in a timely and straightforward manner?

What do all three of those concepts have in common? All can be greatly helped by having a professional website. Having a website does not have to be difficult or expensive-- with so many sites out there, it may be time for you to get your own and make sure that you get the word out. So if you are looking for Web Design, you need to make sure that you are prepared and ready for the future of the economy and the internet. Having your own website will enable you to reach out in ways that you may have never foreseen and open up possibilities, like search engine hits, a site email account, and other options. Make sure that you do your research and pick the best people for the job.

Finding the Best Tools for Your Business

If you own a small business or just have a lot of projects going on in your life, you know the importance of quality tools and how they can make a big difference when you really need them. That is why you should make sure to do your research and find the best instruments you can get for the best price. Those couple of hours looking up information can make a big difference in the final result. If you are in an industry where a finished product is your marquee, make sure that it will come out in the best possible shape-- and that is only possible with skill, time, and the right tools.

Say you needed material handling supplies? Maybe you need something for the factory, office, or warehouse that you really need to rely on day in and day out. This can be the case if you are dealing with trolleys, hoppers, or any of the other goods that may be of such importance to your home or business. When dealing with this, it is often vitally important to check what sort of product you are getting and only purchase them from a reputable source.You may be surprised at how high quality some are.
