Quote Of The Week

Barrack Obama "can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I'm concerned."

"Now he's coming into Rhode Island treating us like an ATM machine,"

Source

Frank Caprio, Democratic candidate for governor - Rhode Island

This was said on Monday after Obama refused to endorse Caprio for Governor. Obama would not endorse him out of respect for his friend Lincoln Chaffee, Democrat Republican turned "Independent" who is running against Caprio.

Caprio came out today and stated he regretted saying this about Obama.

He may very well regret it. It is more likely that he wishes he hadn't said it publicly.

The comment itself, and the attempted retraction, though highlight a real dilemma in the Democratic Party.

Democrats on one hand are trying to appear that they are all on the same page.

While untrue, this fits in with the fringe media's narrative that it is actually the GOP who has an ongoing civil war which is ripping the party apart while the Democrats are all united and sit around and hug puppies, and kiss babies, and bake apple pies, blah, blah, blah. You've all seen the MSM message.

But I digress.

Caprio's remarks put the real truth inside the Democratic Party on display, they can't stand each other.

There is, contrary to the public misinformation, a very big fight inside the Democratic Party.

The far left is controlling the national agenda for the Democratic Party right now. The unholy trinity of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Barrack Obama are trying to enact their destructive uber-liberal policies on the American public and candidates like Frank Caprio are stuck out in the public finding themselves explaining how destroying the country with socialized health care, energy taxes to pay for a global warming fraud, higher taxes, and job-killing regulations all make sense.

One would almost pity them if it were not for the fact that most of them supported these plans until the public heard about them and all Hell broke lose. If they had not supported the effort to get these three elected to their current positions, either directly or indirectly. Finally, pity for them if they had not all been out front leading the "change" and "hope" cheers two years ago when this fateful administration was being shamefully and deceitfully sold to an ignorant (due to lack of honest misinformation) American public.

Now they cannot run away fast enough.

Just don't tell the public, they think it's the GOP that is fighting among themselves.

Is This A Good Idea?

Will Google's Online Operating System Revolutionize the Computer?

Source

It sounds convenient, possibly faster and easier to use than Windows, eliminates the need for a hard drive, but is it a good idea?

Do you want all of your files, pictures, financial records stored at an offsite facility ran by Google?

Google has shown itself to be far-left and, in the case of China, willing to bow to governmental pressure.

It has been shown that Google censors it's search to bring up results that fit it's agenda. It has become quite a game to put items such as "Christianity is" in to see what the instant search will fill in for you. Try it, you will find that it is bullshit, not a religion, a cult, a lie, false, the most perverted, dying, wrong. There is not on single positve attribute listed in the first page of results.
Then there's this:

According to USA Today, 98% of search engine's employees gave money to Democrats in '04.

Add to that the fact that our far-left President has been given unprecedented power over the internet and the left wants the government to have more.

Are you comfortable having Google store all of your personal information?

Coming To America?

Entire police force in Los Ramones, Mexico quits after gunmen attack headquarters

Read the article, it's scary.

This town is a 75 mile drive from the US border. The entire police force quit after men from a drug cartel emptied a thousand rounds and six grenades into their brand new police station.

As it turns out though this is not an unusual occurrence. Police forces in small towns in Mexico like this one commonly quit over gang violence.

Quite frankly, who could blame them?

Being a police officer in a small sleepy US town has some risk to it. Being an inner city police officer in a large US city can be a downright dangerous profession.

How would you like to be a police officer in a small town in Mexico in an area controlled by the drug cartels and outgun you? Oh, and they have no qualms what so ever about killing police officers.

I am amazed they can find anyone to do the job to begin with.

Back to the beginning though.

Remember how I said this is only 75 miles from the US border?

How can we not see this as a national security threat?

How can we keep throwing foreign aid at a country like Mexico that refuses to control it's drug crime in the shadow of the US border. Crime that spills over into the US so that we have entire sections of the US southwest in which our citizens cannot go?

How can we allow this government to join in on a lawsuit against one of our own states?

How can we let the President of this lawless country stand at the front of our House of Representatives and attack one of our own states?

Finally, how can we have almost half of the members of the House give this attack a standing ovation?

Most importantly, how soon before this is a police station in small town America?

Votes For Sale, Cheap

We are now resorting to bribery to win elections in Nevada. Read this article.

The Reid campaign is offering food at get out the vote rallies and we even have union members handing out gift cards in exchange for votes for Reid.

It's okay though, don't worry, the Democratic Secretary of State for Nevada has released a statement saying that they are not violating state law.

This has gone beyond funny. These people need to go to jail.

The only real question is, when are the GOP going to get off of their pathetic little asses and do something about this?

Will we see investigations when they retake the House (if they can overcome the fraud), I for one am not holding my breath.

So we will just let it continue into the next election, and the next one, and the next one...

Is Harry Reid Toast?

EXCLUSIVE: Aide to Harry Reid Lied to Feds, Submitted False Documents About Sham Marriage

Source

I thought Reid was going down anyways. Now it comes out that one of his aides did a marriage-for-hire scheme to help a Lebanese terrorist get US citizenship. Read the article, it gets much better than this.

Good-bye Harry, wish I could say I will miss you.

Note: after writing this I looked at a story on MSNBC.com that most of you will find interesting.

The article doesn't mention the fact that the man in the case, Bassam Mahmoud Tarhini, was a person of interest in an Oklahoma City Joint Terror Task Force investigation.

The MSNBC article goes to great lengths to make this seem as if it is nothing more than a political attack on Reid by Fox News. As evidence of this they cite Media Matters, a far left site that appears to exist solely to attack Fox and which has had allegations that it is funded by George Soros leveled against it. For all of the hand-wringing on the left about hidden donors contributing to GOP friendly groups, I could not find out who their benefactors are. If you have the stomach for it, visit the site.

The article on MSNBC went to great lengths to explain that this all happened before this low level staffer worked for Reid and there was no evidence Reid knew. This low level staffer represented Reid on Spanish speaking TV. As far as it all happening before she worked for Reid, she confessed to the crime 2 months after starting for him. The case was finally resolved on July 6 this year when her divorce was finalized. So essentially almost the entire time she worked for Reid the case was ongoing. I think the real question here is that if Reid in fact did not know, why not?

So, there you go, the free press for all to see.

What Do You Think About This?

Party Chiefs Predict Victory in Battle for House

You can read the article but it is mostly predictable, the RNC Chair Michael Steele says they are going to have a massive day, DNC Chair Tim Kaine says the Dems are going to hold on. Essentially they are doing their jobs.

Steele is making a case for a wave election with the political climate being in favor of the GOP and against Obama and the Dems.

Kaine is saying that early numbers show the analysts could be wrong.

What do you think one week out, which is it?

Is it a wave election? Will the Dems get swept out in an anti-incumbent frenzy?

Are the analysts wrong? Will the Dems hold on? Will their ground game save them? Will the Dems be able to "dig up" enough votes to keep them in office? Will the Dem's get out the vote efforts rule the day? Keep in mind ACORN is not the factor it has been in the last 2 elections.

At the time of writing this I am watching Fox News. Even "Baghdad Bob" Beckel is conceding that this could be a GOP election. It doesn't get much more doom and gloom for the Dems than for him to admit that they are in trouble.

Finally, these two links for RCP may help you decide.

Quote Of The Week

"People who are legal immigrants to the United States after a five-year waiting period can become citizens and become enfranchised," spokesman Ira Mehlman said. "But until then, being here as a legal immigrant is a conditional agreement, sort of like a trial period. You have to demonstrate you are the type of person we would want to have as a citizen, then you can become a citizen and vote."

Ira Mehlman, Federation for American Immigration Reform

Source

Read the article. Essentially what is going on here is that people across the US (pronounced Dem-o-crats) feel that it is unfair for someone who has not taken the effort to fully learn to speak English or become a US citizen to be denied the right to vote.

The solution? A quiet, this is the first I have heard of it, movement to pass laws to allow legal immigrants who have not become citizens to vote in local elections. The article recounts the story of this gentleman:

Abdirizak Daud, 40, moved to Minneapolis 18 years ago before coming to Portland in 2006. He hasn't been able to find a job. Some of his nine children have attended Portland schools, and he'd like to have a say in who's looking over the school system and the city, he said.

But between his limited English and the financial demands, Daud hasn't been able to become a citizen.

This man has lived in the US for 18 years, all of which you and I have been paying for an interpreter whenever he has accessed health care or governmental services because he has not taken the effort to become proficient in English, and he deserves the right to vote?

Now the initial reaction to this is, it's just local elections. Who cares who votes for school boards, city councils, dog catcher, right? What about local election officials? How about having these non-citizens vote for either local election officials or the people who appoint them? Still okay?

Check this site out.

Finally, one last quote to wrap things up. Think this might have anything to do with this effort?

"I like the Democrats. I want to vote for Democrats, but I don't have citizenship,"

Evidently Mr Daud, from above, can speak some English.

Off To The Re-education Camp Comrade

Michigan Woman Faces Civil Rights Complaint for Seeking a Christian Roommate

Read this article. This nursing student from Grand Rapids posted an ad at her church seeking a Christian roommate. Evidently it is illegal in Michigan to place an ad for a roommate based on religion.

The case was brought to the attention of the Fair Housing Center of West Michigan. From there it has been referred to the Michigan Department of Civil Rights so that we can get to the bottom of this hurtful bigotry.

Reading the article it all seems absurd. It does, that is, until you get to this part:

The Fair Housing Center of West Michigan might ask for an initial reimbursement of $300 for time spent on the issue and training for the woman, in addition to pulling down the ad, Haynes said.

WTF???

By my count they are violating at least 4 of this woman's constitutional rights:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof (violation #1) ; or abridging the freedom of speech (#2) , or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble (#3) , and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use (#4) , without just compensation.

the 5th Amendment of the United States Constitution

Some may argue that #4 is a stretch but I do not. I think that since the government is dictating what she can do with her living space and deciding who she can choose to live with, they are in effect taking it for public use.

So, not only are they violating her constitutional rights, they are going to send her off for re-education so she can learn to be a good little comrade and get along with all of the other communists in the collective.

As a Michigander I can say this is not one of our prouder moments.

What's Going On Here?

The news of the day is that Juan Williams was fired by NPR for making an insensitive remark about Islam. In other words he committed the one unforgivable liberal sin, he didn't polish the asses of all peace loving Muslims in the world.

Williams was fired for saying this on Bill O'Reilly Monday night:

"But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they're identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."

Source

Before I get to the point of this post, a brief interlude on the history of tolerance from NPR

A Brief History of NPR's Intolerance and Imbalance

Source

Anyways, I was reading this article when this part caught my eye.

NPR says government funding makes up less than 2 percent of it budget, with the rest coming from station fees, sponsorships and grants. This week, the radio network received $1.8 million from billionaire investor George Soros to hire journalists to cover legislatures in all 50 states.

Source

So think about the timeline:

-Monday Juan Williams is on Bill O'Reilly in which he made his offensive comment

-later in the week George Soros donates almost 2 million to NPR

-Thursday, 3 days after this offensive remark, Williams is fired

Williams is fired without being able to speak to anyone at NPR to get an explanation as to why he is fired.

Two questions:

If this is such an offensive remark that he was not even given the opportunity to talk to the person deciding to fire him, why did it take 3 days to do it?

Is it just a coincidence that far-left, anti-American George Soros gave them money and all of a sudden Williams was fired?

I just found it a little interesting.

Should This Be Illegal?

At $262,797 a year, retiring Coopersville superintendent is by far highest paid school chief in West Michigan

It shows O'Neill, leading a 2,600-student district, out-earns Grand Rapids Superintendent Bernard Taylor, who gets $216,321 in salary and annuity to lead the region's largest district, at 18,700 students.

O'Neill's pay also approaches what Thomas Haas makes as Grand Valley State University president: $225,000 in salary and $40,000 in deferred compensation. Haas' perks also include a university-provided house.

Rockford Superintendent Michael Shibler is the highest-paid suburban school chief, and appeared to be the highest-paid superintendent when The Press did its survey. He is paid $210,961 and has asked for a pay freeze in each of the past two years. Rockford has 8,000 students.


Source

It is unlikely any of you have heard of this school district, it's population is a mixture of farmers and middle income suburbanites. Not a poor district but certainly not a wealthy one.

This brings to mind the case in Bell, California.

We have elected officials getting into office and raiding our piggy bank.

Now the most obvious solution is to vote all of the school board members in this district. Is that enough though?

This man has his money, money the people of this district will not see again. Further, his pension is likely based on his salary so it is the gift that keeps giving.

How long do we continue to tolerate this? What constitutes "high pay" and when does it turn into embezzlement?

Thoughts?

Any Chance Of Success?

Lawmakers in 14 States Craft Bill to Deny Citizenship to 'Anchor Babies'

Source

Now, the knee-jerk reaction here is that these laws will be struck down as unconstitutional by the SCOTUS.

Read the 14th Amendment (in which the concept of anchor babies is based upon) though:

1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

I am not a lawyer and I thank God for this. I have to wonder though how this phrase subject to the jurisdiction thereof would be interpreted by the current SCOTUS.

Is there something to the fact that the parents are illegal and not subject to jurisdiction of the US?

Maybe I'm sounding ignorant, what are our thoughts?

What Do You Think About This?

Note: Due to the recent increase of lawsuits against bloggers over copyright infringement by news outlets I have been hesitant to cut and paste sections of articles into my blog.

Read this article. It is about a gentleman who has a large political sign attached to the bed of his pick-up. A mall in Florida has banned him from their parking lot because they call it solicitation. He is claiming that his first amendment right to free speech is being infringed upon.

Which is it? Free speech rights or private property rights?

Does it make a difference if the mall is applying the rule unequally? Is the private owner of a mall required to be fair in enforcing it's non-solicitation rules? To be fair to the mall, there is no indication they are doing this. Just as a hypothetical question, is there an obligation?

Quote Of The Week

"Meg Whitman could be described as 'a political whore.' Yes, that's an accurate statement,"

"The very troubling issue that is embedded in that call is what prompted the description of Meg as a 'whore' is basically that she sold out Californians for an endorsement and a $450,000 independent expenditure campaign,"


California NOW President Parry Bellasalma

Could NOW have any less credibility?

We have a successful business woman, a woman running for Governor of the largest state in California, and she is called a whore by the campaign of a male opponent. Not only does NOW not condemn this but it actually comes out in defense of the offender and throws their support behind him.

I am not shocked though. This is not the first time we have seen this on the left.

We have seen individuals and groups that claim to fight for the civil rights of minorities turn a blind eye to incidents of blatant racism directed against political opponents. Like NOW, they have not only tolerated this racism but have rushed to the defense of the offender.

Just more hypocrisy from the left.

Is This Okay?

Pairing food, early-vote rallies raises legal risks

Read the article. Basically the South Dakota Democratic Party is sponsoring early vote rallies on Indian reservations and providing food for the attendees.

Two things about this:

-Democrats garner 95% of the vote on resservations

-it appears very likely it is illegal in the state of South Dakota

The Democratic Party has a long history of being helpful with voters; giving homeless people cigarettes, going into nursing homes and "helping" the residents vote, on and on.

Now for the million dollar question though:

What happens if this is determined to be illegal?

The state Republican Party has asked for an investigation but they are actively holding the rallies.

What about the votes they garner with this? Do they toss them? This seems unfair to the people who voted.

Do they fine them? They get, what, a $10,000 fine? This is just a campaign expenditure. Cheaper than a commercial buy.

This is becoming a standard m.o. for the Democrats.

Look at the Minnesota Senate election. Several local (democratic) election officials allowed enough felons to vote to swing the election to Al Franken. So what? He's still in the Senate.

Go back to the 2000 Presidential election in Florida. The Democrats would have given the election to Al Gore by counting invalid ballots if the Supreme Court had not stopped them.

The military ballots that have not been counted over the years, there's a reason the Dems do this. How many elections has this effected?

What about the dead voting?

It is known in the 2004 election that people were voting in more than one state.

Cuyahoga County in Ohio (a democratic stronghold) in 2008 the registered voter count was 100,000 higher than the actual number of people eligible to vote. At this time I saw a news feature of voters registered in Cleveland, in Cuyahoga County, at addresses that don't exist. One person was registered several times on one block, some of them at non-existant addresses.

ACORN. One word says it all.

So, again, what do we do about it?

I don't have the answer, just wondering if anyone else does.

Show Us The Donor List Mr President

Much has been made by the left about funding for the current Congressional campaign from outside groups supporting Republican candidates. The accusation is that the groups do not disclose where they get their money. The claim in essence is that these are shadowy groups secretly funding campaigns.

Most prominently, the White House and Democratic National Committee have been attacking the Chamber of Commerce's financing of ads against primarily Democratic candidates.

The accusations, so far unfounded, are that the C of C is accepting foreign contributions and money from the usual Republican bogeymen, Wall Street, big oil, blah, blah, blah.

While I am not a fan of interest groups financing political campaigns, I am also not going to fault the GOP for accepting the help as long as Democratic campaigns are funded by George Soros, unions, the abortion lobby, trial lawyers, etc.

The point I am trying to make though is that if anyone in the Republican National Committee has any brains (evidence has yet to surface of this) they would see this attack as a gift from the DNC.

In 2008 Barrack Obama accepted $400 million in contributions from groups who did not disclose their donors. There has been strong anecdotal indications that money for the campaign came from foreign sources, specifically the Middle East.

The President and the DNC opened the door, the RNC just needs to walk through it. Demand that Obama release his donor list from the 2008 campaign. Run a commercial asking these questions.

We are seeing some on the right throw it back in the President's face, just watching Fox News this morning I saw Karl Rove and Laura Ingram questioning it.

The RNC needs to fall in line.

What do you think about the issue with her and her housekeeper?

There are so many layers to this issue.

Is she just another wealthy person who thinks she is above the law and can hire an illegal?

Is the housekeeper being used by the queen of self-promotion Gloria Alred? Is she being used by Alred to help the campaign of Jerry Brown?

Why isn't this a discussion about the fact that this "victim" is actually a criminal in the country illegally who lied to her employer?

Is this case exhibit A of how the media and rest of the left are trying to change the conversation from the fact that illegal immigrants are criminals to making them out to be the real victims?

Quote Of The Week

"My dad was gone by the time I was seven,"..."I was flunking out of high school. I failed geography, civics, Spanish and English. When you fail Spanish and English, you are not bilingual, you are bi-ignorant."

Source

Tim Scott, candidate for Congress for South Carolina

Mr Scott is a candidate for Congress and is a black Republican.

The quote was about how, like Barrack Obama, Mr Scott was born into a broken home and raised in poverty.

Unlike Obama, Mr Scott went out, worked hard, and became a small business man.

The quote caught my eye largely for the last line.

Many people are born into poverty, something that is disproportionately high among minorities. A lot of them do poorly in school and have a life long excuse as to why they cannot succeed.

Black, Hispanic, white, etc, our country is littered with people who feel that they were not given a fair shake in life. Instead of picking themselves up and becoming a productive member of society, they wrap themselves in victimhood and wear that mantle proudly for the rest of their lives.

The rest of us on the other hand (and for the record, I was not born with a sliver spoon in my mouth) have to due with less of our income because we have to pay a higher rate of taxes for these victims.

We have to support their sitting up at night playing video games and sleeping all day habits.

We have to pay for their multiple out-of-wedlock births to multiple fathers who, you guessed it, sit up all night playing video games and sleeping all day.

We have to pay for their children as they grow to adults and begin having multiple children out-of-wedlock and sit up all night playing video games and sleep all day. The reason for this is that often having children out-of-wedlock and being a loafer who sits up all night playing video games and sleeping all day appears to be a genetic condition as does the underlying malady of victimhood.

I like the quote. If it is any indication of the man himself, he is someone we need in Congress.

This Would Be A Massive Coupe

Dingell Trailing Republican 39% to 44%

John Dingell was first elected in 1954 to a seat his father had held since 1932.

He's in trouble though.

-39% of voters support him. It is considered worrisome if an incumbent is below 50%. I'm not sure what it is considered if the candidate is below 40%.

-60% of the voters are at least mildly unsure of him.

-11% are undecided. Conventional wisdom holds that undecideds often break for the challenger. Dingell will have to get about 75% of these undecideds to erase the deficit he is in.

Now this is one poll and it has a margin of error of 5.6%, this not insignificant. Also, it did not have a large sample, 300 people. It is hard to explain away numbers this bad and the Congressmen himself has been telling people he is in a tough fight.

It would be no small irony for Dingell to get fired by the voters at the same time that the ex-President for whom he constantly called for impeachment of is starting to have a small resurgence in his popularity.

What Do You Think About This?

Feds Try to Save Law Punishing Phony Military Heroes

DENVER -- The U.S. Justice Department will appeal two court decisions that said a federal law making it illegal to lie about being a war hero is unconstitutional.

Federal prosecutors in Colorado said Friday they will appeal a ruling by a federal judge in Denver that the Stolen Valor Act violates free speech.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, ruling in a California case, also found the law unconstitutional. Late Thursday, prosecutors asked that court to reconsider.

The law makes it a crime punishable by up to a year in jail to falsely claim to have received a military medal.

Supporters say the Constitution doesn't protect people who knowingly lie. They argue the law is needed to protect the honor of real heroes.

Opponents say the law puts too much power in government hands, and that lying for financial gain is already covered by fraud statutes.

What do you think? Constitutionally protected free speech or fraudulent?

It is obviously sleazy but should it be illegal? I know what I think about it, what about you?

Quote Of The Week

“He that would look with contempt on the pursuits of the farmer, is not worthy the name of a man”

Henry Ward Beecher

I'm not a huge fan of Henry Ward Beecher but this quote fit what I wanted to write about this week.

As I have said before, we live in a small town in West Michigan. This weekend we have our annual local festival. As with a lot of small towns in the midwest that have these, ours centers largely around agriculture.

We have a parade as part of the festival and it is actually quite nice. It lasts for almost an hour and half and a lot of the participants are local so you recognize a lot of them. Participating in the parade every year are antique tractors that have been entered into a competition that is a part of the festival.

It's a midwestern thing, you have to live here to understand.

The point is, the parade and the fact that this is harvest time of year got me thinking about farmers and what they do for us.

We realize here in the midwest that people on the two coasts make fun of us. We don't care. We like where we are and have no interest in living in New York City or San Francisco. Quite frankly, we make fun of them.

We get the last laugh though, we make their food.

It would be interesting to see how the liberal elites of these cities would do without the farmers of the midwest, south, plains, etc. All of the people in "fly over land".

So, they can have their brie and wine. Me, I'm going to have a beer here in the heartland and watch the tractors go by.

Those that have not lost their jobs to China that is.

Sure Way To Get Fired By CNN? Attack A Fellow Liberal

CNN host Rick Sanchez fired after Jon Stewart rant

Read this article and tell me if you see anything that is not said about Republicans and/or conservatives everyday by the talking heads at CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc.

Rick Sanchez himself has made similar attacks against the right and there wasn't an eyebrow raised. Same for Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, on and on and on...

Now all of a sudden he attacks a fellow liberal and he's out the door.

This all seem okay to you?
