Obama inspecting Sandy damage among the one percenters in New Jersey

I don’t have a problem with wealthy people.  They’ve earned it.  Obama does.  But he sure is sucking up to them in the aftermath of Sandy. The super wealthy love Democrats--higher taxes and more regulations knock out their competition, and if they're building their phone factories in China, it doesn't hurt at all.

Today in one of his speeches he actually had the gall to say, “We don’t leave any Americans behind (paraphrase).”  Huh.  How above the Benghazi cover-up?

“His comments at the end of the trip focused on the federal response, but concluded with a theme from Obama's campaign stump speech about Americans working together to help each other.

"We go through tough times, but we bounce back," the president said at the North Point Marina in Brigantine. "We bounce back because we look out for one another, and we [the federal government] don' t leave anybody behind." CNN

Obama’s war against women, pt. 2

“The estrogen-progesterone combination contained in the pill and hormone replacement therapies was declared a Class 1 carcinogen by the World Health Organization in 2005. All Class 1 carcinogens have been found to cause cancer in both lab and human studies. This means the ingredients in the pill are now listed in the same category as arsenic, asbestos, radium and tobacco smoke. Remember, hormone replacement therapy, which contains lower doses of the same ingredients as the pill, is now rarely prescribed because of the dangers - but the pill remains in widespread use.”

“The phony war on women is a crime against humanity.”

The electorate wakes up

Regardless of what happens next Tuesday, Obama has succeeded in waking up millions of Americans to what we have lost, not just the last 4 years, but our general carelessness with our freedoms. If Romney wins, he'll have millions paying attention, and we'll have our vigilant, sleeping media back on the job they've not done during the Obama years. The Benghazi fiasco makes me realize that without the media, we would have never known about the Watergate plumbers. And no one died.

http://patdollard.com/2012/10/ap-obama-turns-new-generation-into-fiscal-conservatives/

In one poll, for instance, he found that 42 percent of 18- and 19-year-olds identified as “conservative,” compared with just over one-third who said they were “liberal.” By comparison, those proportions were nearly flipped for 22- to 24-year-olds: 39 percent said they were “liberal,” and a third called themselves “conservative.” It was much the same for older twentysomethings.

Tina Wells, head of Buzz Marketing, an agency that tracks the attitudes of young people, has noticed this shift to the right. Her own researchers have found that the youngest adults are much more likely to label themselves “conservative,” “moderate” or “independent” than older millennials, a term for young adults who’ve entered adulthood in the new millennium.

Our media

431629_10151304275392650_1764944005_n[1]

The media (and some of my readers) will ridicule anything that isn't about Obama. And they will hide anything like arms running in the Middle East that makes Obama look bad. The media will say collecting supplies for people affected by one of the largest storms in 2 centuries is silly, but think what they would say if Romney did all out campaign?  Obama won’t have to lift a bag of groceries—he’ll just write a check on our behalf.  Obama has been campaigning for 2012 since January 2009, and it’s been a full court press since he appeared with his supporters in matching t-shirts at the funerals in Arizona 2 years ago.  That was his kick off.  Obama never misses an opportunity to campaign.  Right now, when the polls are going against him, he’s staying put in Washington, DC, pretending to pay attention and to care.  Where was he on September 11, 2012 when he watched the drama for 7 hours, and then abandoned his men?

Without the media, he hopes we’ll forget . . .

Patricia’s story

In her job training at Planned Parenthood:

"When the medical assistant who was training me emptied out the contents from the bag into the petri-dish I couldn’t handle the smell. She then grabbed a pair of tweezers and started searching inside the petri-dish. She then found an arm, grasped it with the tweezers and held it up to the light. She said, “This is one part -it’s the arm.” I could see the detail in the baby’s hand, the knuckles and the fingernails formed. She then found the second arm. I was horrified at what I was witnessing. I tried to act normal like it wasn’t affecting me. She then lifted one of the legs up to the light with the tweezers. I could see the small tiny hairs on the skin, the lines around the knees forming and the toenails. But when she held up the head of the baby, that’s when I knew I had murdered my three children. On the head I could see the nose, the nostrils, the eyelashes and even the eyebrows forming."

The sugar daddy vote

"Unmarried women voted for Obama by a margin of 70-29 in the 2008 election. Now keep in mind that the Democrat party is for abortion, same-sex marriage, taxing and regulating job creators, massive deficits and spiraling debt. And the Democrats also support anti-family policies like pushing premarital sex onto young people at early ages, mandatory funding of failing public schools, no-fault divorce, and subsidizing welfare programs which make it easier for women to have fatherless children."

Obama is losing support among all groups

Are they all racists?

Democrats have been losing the white vote constantly since 1964, and John Kerry lost the white vote in 2004.  Were they voting by race or by politics.  Isn’t it racist for Democrats to assume everything Obama does is based on race?

No Panera’s this morning

High winds, sleet and snow from Sandy. I'm skipping the coffee shop this morning, but I'm guessing the bakers and clerks will be there.

"It's like a weirdly inverse chart, where the folks with secure government jobs, the ones with SUVs and more affluent addresses, get to stay home, bundle up and wait out the storm. And the folks working the minimum-wage jobs, who frequently rely on public transportation, have to find a way — any way — to make it to work." Washington Post

Liberals and the blame game

155326_211143022352924_1159479728_n[1]

If Romney wins next week, Conservatives will be in the same boat.  Liberals will expect Romney to make good on all promises by Easter 2013.  I mean there was a miracle and a resurrection before, why not in 2013?

CNN/ORC Poll

64523_487421704624298_1037519790_n[1]

Sometimes (often) polls are wrong; like in 1980 when they said the Carter/Reagan race was too close to call.

Children singing for Obama—a campaign ad

A record number of people on food stamps, a record number in poverty, the largest tax increase in the history of the nation, hacking away at the 1st amendment, the wars he inherited he's expanded all over the middle east, his green "investments" have blown up in his face, as Commander in Chief he's left his men behind, and yet there's a children's choir Obama ad singing about the dangers of Romney? Is this a joke? Is this child abuse?

Obama’s war against women

398256_126550090828184_1249061265_n[1]

Long, Tall Sandy

Obama cancelled campaigning for a storm, but not the attack on the Americans in Libya on 9/11. For that, he blamed a video and went off to party with Beyonce and Jay-Z the next day.

The storm will also postpone the October jobs report so it's not available before the election; the storm will also postpone a hearing on the timeline about who knew what when until after the election.

The most convenient storm in political history.

Obama and Sandy

Obama is right on top of this hurricane. Too bad he was so careless on 9/11 when people were dying in Benghazi while he was watching in real time. Last night on Geraldo at Large Charles Woods, the father of murdered Benghazi SEAL Tyrone Woods, looked into the camera and sent this message to Barack Obama: “It’s better to die a hero than live a coward.”

Obama got a lot of extra TV face time due to Sandy. He usually doesn’t respond to national emergencies, but this one comes during the last week of campaigning.  He monitored the Joplin tragedy from Ireland, and the BP oil spill help was so tardy even Democrat James Carville was criticizing him. 

"The President of the United States could've come down here, he could've been involved with the families of these 11 people" who died in the oil rig's explosion.”

I don’t think he’ll postpone the election (it’s illegal, but that alone wouldn’t stop him, I’m sure SCOTUS would overlook that), because the news about Benghazi just gets worse and eats into his shrinking group of supporters. They’re racists, of course.

12,000 flights cancelled so far.  But even if you’re not in one of the affected states, that sure messes up flights further inland.

Here in Columbus they’re predicting 60 mph winds so we’re not going to our FOOF meeting tonight

Sandy is closing abortion clinics in 8 states!

550513_10151250729246760_540786555_n[1]

Daily Herald (suburban Chicago) endorses Romney reversing its 2008 endorsement of Obama because. . .

“At a time when the economy was wracked, he [Obama] chose instead to focus on health care reform. In doing so, his administration chose early on to fight with Congress rather than to work with it. He chose to force his landmark health care bill through Congress without a single Republican vote, significantly contributing to the bitter atmosphere of division in Washington.

His economic initiatives have been heavily bent toward the public sector, a big spending approach that has been aptly derided by Romney as “trickle-down government.”

And however well intended his belief that the Bush tax cuts should be ended for upper-income brackets, his $250,000 benchmark has been remarkably low, as many two-income families and small business owners and others in the suburbs can attest.

More pointedly, we are disappointed in the tone of Obama’s relentless insinuations that wealthy Americans refuse to pay their fair share. That tone is divisive and damaging for the nation and for our economy. It creates villains and victims, and unfairly so.”

http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20121028/discuss/710289939/

Not that it matters in the national sense, because the Chicago machine controls Illinois.

Sandy is a big one

It’s 39 degrees in Columbus today, and the wind is supposed to get bad. Because our area was hit so badly with electrical outages in the summer, people are cleaning out the stores for emergency supplies.  Emergency and utility crews have already gone east—hope we don’t need them here! I hope our relatives in North and South Carolina, and Virginia are safe and well stocked with supplies. Gayle—I know you read my blog—hope you can stay connected to the internet.

CPUSA endorses Obama

Since 1988, the Communist Party USA has not run its own candidates for president and vice-president, preferring instead to work through the Democratic Party. It supported Obama in 2008 and again this year. Accuracy in Media, July 27, 2012

That would explain taking God out of the platform, wouldn't it?

Politics and religion—nothing else matters more

I'm puzzled when people say politics and religion don't mix like to do so is driving drunk.

  • Have you ever been in a black church? 
  • Should abuse of unborn children not be spoken of in church because it's been political since 1973,
  • or in the state house because that evil is Biblical for the last how many thousand years?
  • What about women's rights? Is stealing the value of women's labor a sin or a political wrong?
  • Right to work union abuses? Forcing a teacher or contractor to pay dues to support something they don't agree with is what? 
  • Is polluting the rivers and lakes only political, or does the Bible address how to take care of the earth?
  • You do know that the word "penitentiary" comes from the spiritual term "penitent," don't you? 
  • Are crooked elected officials a political problems or a sin problem? 
  • Who was it who pushed the slavery issue to the forefront of America's conscience?
  • Is gay marriage a religious or political issue?
  • Is ignorance of first amendment problems in the HHS Mandate a political or a church problem if it takes away religious freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution?

In the U.S. we were guaranteed at one time that the state would not encroach on the church, but the state grabbed more and more of the conversation real estate, so at some point, you'll just have to talk about it.

Obama administration attacks Tyndale

Tyndale House Publishers, which publishes Bibles and other Christian books and multimedia, filed a federal lawsuit earlier this month against the HHS Mandate of the Obama Administration.

“Bible publishers should be free to do business according to the book that they publish,” said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman. “For the government to say that a Bible publisher is not religious is alarming. It demonstrates how clearly the Obama administration is willing to disregard the Constitution’s protection of religious freedom to achieve certain political purposes. For that reason, we are asking the court to halt this mandate.”

Obama is driving away Democrats

“In 2008, 54% of likely voters identified as Democrat or lean Democrat. 42% of likely voters identified as GOP or lean GOP. In other words, the electorate, including independents who lean towards a particular party, was D+12. This year, however, the Democrat advantage has disappeared. 49% of likely voters today identify as GOP or lean GOP. Just 46% of likely voters are or lean towards the Democrats. This is a 15-point swing towards the GOP from 2008 to an outright +3 advantage for the GOP. By comparison, in 2004, when Bush won reelection, the electorate was evenly split, with each party getting support from 48% of likely voters.”

http://www.gallup.com/poll/158399/2012-electorate-looks-like-2008.aspx

And that youth vote Obama got in 2008?  Well, it seems they grew up and had to get jobs.  Let’s hope they look around and figure out they can’t chase his father’s socialist and anti-colonialist dreams another four years.  The current youth vote (born 18-20 years ago) are still stumbling in the dark and trying to lose their virginity vote.

Obama’s cover up of the Syrian weapons disaster

1016_10151187304720896_1064666243_n[1]

Obama has expanded the war in Iraq and Afghanistan (called Bush’s wars by Democrats)  into about 5 more countries (depends on how you count Jordan), and is replacing Muslim dictators (secular) with Muslim jihadists. I think history will show that the so called Arab Spring of 2011 was plotted and fueled by this administration. No proof yet, but it has B.O. written all over it.

The reason 4 Americans pictured above were killed on 9/11 in Benghazi isn't that they were guarding an embassy or that a mob got out of control due to a video. They were there doing work for the CIA and trying to track down what had happened to 40 million tons of arms, which were on their way to Syria. The Syrian civil war has already killed 33,000 Syrians even though the so-called rebels have our weapons (I suspect they required training). That dictator, Assad, is no prize, but it's also none of our
business.

Our leader, our Commander in Chief, admired by Castro, Chavez and Planned Parenthood, is no prize either--probably on the level of Assad of Syria, because he would not send anyone to save the men who were there on his orders because his precious cover would be blown right before the election. He's a huge coward and traitor.

Christians were a very small minority in all those Muslim countries Obama has invaded, but at least they were allowed to live under the secular Islamist rulers. Now they will either be slaughtered because of their religion, or they will have to leave.

Now, maybe you weren't thrilled with Bush's wars, which had Congressional approval, even Joe Biden's vote, but no one but his own cronies has approved of what Obama has done, and we are
supposed to have a say through our elected representatives.

Coffee shop encounter

“What do you say!” she barked loudly to her small daughter who had just received her do-nut. “Thank you,” the little one meekly replied.

I know I did that to my kids too back in the 1970s, which is probably why I noticed (could hear myself) but gosh, it grates on my old ears now.  It kind of smacks of “Everyone look at me, I’m teaching my kid good manners (by being rude to her in public).”

We had a lot of help becoming the crass, rude, it’s-all-about-me people we are today. Here’s my own assessment.

Prayer and Bible reading were taken out of schools incrementally, which removed any thought that there was an over arching system of  justice or wisdom above Me. Today you can’t even pass out red and green M&Ms at a school “holiday party.”

A War on Poverty was launched which drove men out of their children’s lives and diminished respect for marriage, which in turn removed tacit authority of parents. A single mom making $29,000 a year, can boost her income to about $69,000 through government benefits like housing allowances, EITC, SNAP, etc.

Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) took the Catholic church in a different direction, with much misunderstanding and craziness, and the Protestants just followed along.  Happy clappy songs and sloppy loopy teachings have replaced sound doctrine and good liturgy in all Christian denominations.

With falling standards among Christians in the 60s and 70s, divorce, contraception and abortion became the trinity of free and/or marital sex and shacking up.  What’s the point of modeling good behavior?

Boomers came of age—got themselves into all sorts of messes, including war protests and Marxism.  Resulted in a lot of them becoming academics and passing it along to Gen-Xers and Next-Gen. They became sappy grandparents with low to no standards.

That’s a lot to read into a rude parenting style, but words have consequences to the 3rd and 4th generation.

The Commander in Chief made the call to leave his men behind

A sterile campaign

The Democrats have nothing to say about the economy since the last 4 years have been so dismal, so they've made "reproductive rights" their big issue this campaign. Only, they really mean the right to be non-reproductive. With all those free contraceptives, abortifacients and abortions on demand, where is the reproduction?

The buck stops with Obama

“Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”. . .

Barack Obama

“It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?”

 http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/petraeus-throws-obama-under-bus_657896.html

A tangle of narrow appeals—liberals

Robert Reich, The Resurgent Liberal: And Other Unfashionable Prophecies

"Because liberal pluralism lacked any definition of the public good apart from the sum of individual claims, and also lacked a system of principles for screening and balancing such claims, conflicts grew harsher and claims more insistent. By the late 1970s, liberalism and, inevitably, the Democratic Party, too, appeared less the embodiment of a shared vision and more a tangle of narrow appeals from labor unions, teachers, gays, Hispanics, blacks, Jews, the handicapped, the elderly, and women."

Not much has changed since the 1970s, has it?

Fake outrage, but ours is real

Obama, Clinton, Panetta—listen up

Let's bring all military home and stop supplying arms to Muslim fundamentalists. This whole Arab Spring Obama joy ride is a crock, and just the flip side of "nation building," only there's no plan for democracy. Let them battle it out and we'll drill for oil at home. Our Commander in Chief, our Secretary of State and our Defense Secretary are complete ______ (fill in the blank), and not one more life should be lost to their bungling.

It's one thing for a President (Bush) to say, all peoples deserve to have democracy and we'll help. It was naive, but made a lot more sense than trying to pick the winners and losers in a civil war amongst Muslim tribes, Muslim sects and Muslim dictators. Obama has been a complete failure in picking winners, whether it is green energy companies or the Muslim Brotherhood, aka Peace and Justice Party.

If an Obama supporter reads the tragic account of the last hours of the Americans in Benghazi just reported today when all those who could've helped were told to "stand down," and doesn't change her mind, she's hopelessly lost. The Seals were CIA operatives there to track down our lost arms—lost in Obama’s attempt to take sides in civil wars and he armed the wrong guys.  They are the ones who left their compound and came to the aid of the ambassador, and lost their own lives.

I know a lot of Conservatives think the economy is the critical issue, but I can't get it out of my head that the Commander in Chief of The United States Armed Forces left his men behind. No, not only left them, but made a conscious decision not to save them. Just disgusting. And shame on Colin Powell for supporting him.

About 93% of babies with Down Syndrome are aborted.  This one survived and thrived.

Joe Biden and cue balls

I'm not going to make Joe Biden's crass comments about the size of the balls of one of the Seals a campaign issue. But here's the issue. Biden apparently knew when the bodies were returned home how long and hard this man had fought--in his bar room guy-speak he was admiring his bravery. However, when he made the "cue balls" remark, the American public and supposedly the WH, didn't know what had happened because we didn't have the video or e-mails. Another huge gaffe for Joe?

Obama’s real record on women

WomensHealth.gov is run by the Office on Women’s Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. There’s also GirlsHealth.gov, which covers issues on relationships, bullying and more. I haven't checked this, but based on how Obama is encouraging women not to procreate as a "health" issue, I wonder if these sites cover the substantial research on links between breast cancer and birth control pills, and higher suicide rates for women who have had abortions to say nothing of the STDs a promiscuous life style brings them. Aren't breast cancer and suicide health issues for women? Why fuss over hormones in meat or smoke in the lungs if you don't tell them about the hormones they are adding to their own systems?

In a 1999 legislative vote, then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama was the sole state senator to not vote for for a bill that would protect sexual assault victims from having the details of their cases revealed publicly.

Grieving

for friends and family who refuse to see the evil going on right under our noses.  They cling, not to guns and religion, but to old habits and behaviors.  They don’t want to be wrong, so they declare they are not wrong. They only watch or read news carefully filtered through the administration and are just as na├»ve as were the people of the USSR or the Chinese under Mao. Unless CNN or Dave Letterman suddenly see the light, I think they are close in culpability and no returning from the edge.  They disliked Bush for almost the exact things Obama is doing on steroids—out of control spending and interfering in civil wars in the middle east for our benefit.  They can’t see beyond the R or D after a candidate’s name.

Leaks and announcements on the killing of bin Laden endanger many, all for Obama’s political purposes

Obama has a kill list; he’s making the decisions.  Other countries also have drones.  He’s setting a very bad precedent with the leaks and announcements.

There is no there there

"The iconization of Obama [in 2008], the proliferation of appearances, merchandising and photo and video made many Americans feel as if they knew him, when in reality they knew next to nothing about him. This technique is commonly used by celebrities to create the veneer of familiarity, without the substance." (Sultan Knish, Sept. 1)

Now it's 2012 and the veneer has cracks, the fizz has gone flat, and the slogans are tired. He has no plan, no energy. The economy is easing, gas prices miraculously are down in the nick of time. . . but kaboom. . .Benghazi blows up. Will Americans notice he didn't send help and let them die, that he went to bed after watching it in real time and then left to party with Beyonce and Jay-Z,  that he lied to the U.S. and the U.N. and caused more deaths in the Middle East, all for his campaign that had no message?

Petty, Pretty, Pouty President

“The Obama Campaign, that strange 4 year marriage of Generation X hipsters, inner city bosses, suburban college educated boomers longing for racial healing, Big Green businessmen and shady Saudis, appears to be finally sinking beneath the waves. It isn't going out in a blaze of glory, but with mumbles of trending topics.”

This guy really has a way with words . . .

“Obama has gotten desperate. His fundraising emails walk the thin line between emotional blackmail and hysteria. Increasingly they read like Cousin Larry phoning for bail money from Tijuana. Shrilly needy they demand that we pay attention to him, that we love him, adore him and spend money on him. They are the missives of a man who cannot conceive of a life outside the spotlight, the vapid fear of a celebrity who cannot confront the real world and cannot understand why their public is walking away.”

Please God, let it be so.  We’re so sorry we turned to the golden calf and away from your precepts and laws.  Give us another chance.

Bamnesia

Obama flip marriage

Candidate Obama needed the Evangelical vote in 2008; President Obama needs the gay vote in 2012.

Colin Powell

needs to change parties. This is the second time he’s supported Obama. I can see that any black would vote Obama the first time, but after discovering he's just an ordinary crooked politician who helped no blacks and probably hurt them, why give him a second chance to screw you over?

And Catholics?  They still plan to support Obama?  Unbelievable! Why not just join a liberal mainline Protestant church and stop pretending?   Catholics have standards—both Biblical and centuries of thought and research. Protestants can pretty much make up their own rules, or start a new church, so why not find one that fits your behavior? 

The Catholic church is the only organization in the U.S. large enough to compete in social services with the federal gov't and Obama intends to put a stop that that.  The President promoting the HHS Mandate and endorsed by Planned Parenthood believes in abortion for any reason, even sex selection

The legacy of Madison Grant—the HHS Mandate

Madison Grant, named for 2 presidents, was an American progressive, lawyer and author.  His special interest was eugenics and his book was Hitler's "bible."  He promoted killing disabled infants so they wouldn't be a burden to society and sterilizing "bad girls" and "defectives."  How far have we come?  Now we're more subtle, but it's still for the good of the state.  The HHS Mandate will force religious groups that help the poor, tend the sick, and educate the children to insure birth control and sterilization, and "morning after" pills. Still going after the "bad girls," the poor, and the disabled.    The penalty is $100/day per employee if they don't, a plan intended to put them out of business. The President promoting this believes in abortion for any reason, even sex selection. Mr. Grant would be proud of our progress.

During the Reich's early years, eugenicists across America welcomed Hitler's plans as the logical fulfillment of their own decades of research and effort. California eugenicists republished Nazi propaganda for American consumption. They also arranged for Nazi scientific exhibits, such as an August 1934 display at the L.A. County Museum, for the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association.

In 1934, as Germany's sterilizations were accelerating beyond 5,000 per month, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe upon returning from Germany ebulliently bragged to a key colleague, "You will be interested to know, that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought.…I want you, my dear friend, to carry this thought with you for the rest of your life, that you have really jolted into action a great government of 60 million people."

And on September 12 Obama continued partying

“About a half-hour after militants overran the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month [that would be September 11, 2012 a date everyone should have been prepared for], the State Department notified officials at the White House and elsewhere that the compound was “under attack” by about 20 armed assailants, e-mails obtained by The Washington Post on Wednesday show.”

Washington Post

“But in the following days, [Jay] Carney maintained there was no evidence suggesting the attack was "planned or imminent."

The administration also suggested that an anti-Muslim video produced in the United States likely fueled a spontaneous demonstration in Benghazi as it had in Cairo, where the U.S. Embassy also was attacked.” [It didn’t just suggest it—it trumpeted it inflaming emotions in Muslim countries, and arrested the film maker who is still in jail.]

CNN

The White House is doing everything it can to make it look like they were in control, that they knew, but that information/intelligence was mixed.  Not so.  They watched in real time—someone had to send the drone that filmed it.

It’s a huge cover-up, not just a cover-up of how little control they have there, but the cover-up of the pipeline of arms from Syria to al-Qaeda.  Our guns.  Another Fast and Furious.  The U.S. government is a gun runner, and our own people are being killed due to the incompetence of this administration.

Healthcare for the poor

We're spending $460 billion on healthcare for the poor. Why was Obamacare needed since so many in that group weren't signed up for what was available for them? Well, it was never about the poor, or better care, or cost savings. It's always been about a take over of a segment of the economy.

http://familyfacts.org/charts/310/since-the-war-on-poverty-began-in-1964-welfare-spending-has-skyrocketed

Millions of well-paid jobs in "public service" depend on taking care of people in the lowest quintiles. If poverty disappeared tomorrow, we'd have a new class of poor--government bureaucrats.

Roe v. Wade—Norma McCorvey

Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade urges you NOT to vote for Obama because he kills babies in a campaign ad.

“I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America.
“I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie.
“Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave.
“Please, don’t follow in my mistakes. DO NOT vote for Obama. Obama murders babies.”

Romney got the last word

I'm optimistic about our future. I want to see peace, we have a chance for real leadership, to promote principles of peace and make people confident in their future.... I'll get us on track to a balanced budget. The President's plan will continue to decline take home pay, millions out of work. I'll fix that. I want to get people off food stamps with good jobs, to bring America back we need a president who can reach across the aisle. I was in a state that was 87% Democrat. We worked together... this nation is the hope of the Earth. The greatest generation held a torch for the world to see. Now it's our turn. We'll do it. We need strong leadership with your support. I'll ask for your vote. Together we can maintain America as the hope of the Earth.

Americans died; Obama lied

550519_540583585957089_2003438943_n[1]

I’m checking both CNN and Fox on the unfolding, outrageous Libya story. CNN is covering Obama campaign and whether Hispanics will support him in the numbers of 2008 (he is using the same immigration line). Fox, of course, is covering the important story about the Obama administration abandoning our embassy and how the Americans fought off their attackers for 7 hours.

Public service/ Public servant

Generally, I'm not in favor of changing the definition of well-known terms or words. But PUBLIC SERVANT would definitely be on my list. A "public servant" is someone who works in a government related bureaucracy, either elected or hired, and who makes more than people doing the same work in the private sector, but with fewer hours and better perks. Increasingly, these public servants are unionized and their union CEOs are not only old fashioned goons, but they earn fabulous salaries. What new word do you suggest that's descriptive, clean, and not a pejorative?

Why Romney didn’t need to go there—Libya disaster—during the debate

“Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.

The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.”

Islam's doctrines of deception

Islam's doctrines of deception

To better understand Islam, one must appreciate the thoroughly legalistic nature of the religion. According to sharia (Islamic law) every conceivable human act is categorised as being either forbidden, discouraged, permissible, recommended, or obligatory.

"Common sense" or "universal opinion" has little to do with Islam's notions of right and wrong. Only what Allah (through the Quran) and his prophet Muhammad (through the Hadith) have to say about any given issue matters; and how Islam's greatest theologians and jurists – collectively known as the ulema, literally, "they who know" – have articulated it.

According to sharia, in certain situations, deception – also known as 'taqiyya', based on Quranic terminology, – is not only permitted but sometimes obligatory. For instance, contrary to early Christian history, Muslims who must choose between either recanting Islam or being put to death are not only permitted to lie by pretending to have apostatised, but many jurists have decreed that, according to Quran 4:29, Muslims are obligated to lie in such instances.

Chris Christie offers to send Obama back to Chicago since he can’t change Washington

"You’ve been living inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. for the last four years. If you don’t think you can change Washington from inside the White House let’s give you the plane ticket back to Chicago you’ve earned. … If he believes that, then what the hell is he doing asking for another four years?"

Christie says he feels sorry for Obama--he had no experience and then got this huge job--never ran anything in his life. A man wandering around a dark room. If he couldn't figure it out in 4 years, he won't in the next.

On the final debate Monday evening

We were in Indianapolis visiting family, all of whom are on the same page politically, so we had a lot of company and I even stayed up to watch the analysis, which I usually don’t do.  I don’t like having people tell me what I just watched and listened to.  But this was different.  All of us were baffled by some of Romney’s responses either to Obama or the moderator.  However, after listening to people who do this for a living, it made a little more sense.

It wasn’t Romney’s job at this point to win a debate—all he needed to do was hold his own (rising in the polls every day) and keep Obama from trying to look good.  And in that he succeeded.  Hugely.  Obama was childish, petulant, aggressive and argumentative, and Romney was the grown up, with a sense of humor, some humility, and even conceded several places that Obama was doing the right thing (which shocked everyone).  Obama played to his base; Romney to the entire country.

In other areas, like social media--I don't tweet. But I did notice the national news sources pay attention, and the analysis shows terrible racism and race hatred on the part of Obama voters/supporters. This is a very divisive president and his social media supporters demonstrate that.  Democrats have historically divided Americans into voting blocks—men against women; blacks against browns; white rich men against poor white men; those on the plantation against those living free and earning more.  But Obama being a community organizer and from Chicago, really has exploded this system.  Even his big celeb fund raisers say awful things on their tweets.  A bunch of Twits.

In the debate Obama was dropping some code to his base about the 80's (Reagan), 50's (Eisenhower) and 20s (Coolidge). Not bad company for Romney. Those were powerful, successful years for our nation, years of strength and peace, great movement for minorities and poor.  But Obama never learned that in school, he only learned the revised version, the “progressive” version of American history.  And although the debate was supposed to be on foreign policy, Romney kept bring everything back to the economy (on Cherry Lake Drive we were yelling about that, too).  Obama played into his hands. Yes, maybe you need to look closer at Romney.

We (watching the debate) were all shocked that Romney didn’t lay him out flat on Libya, because each day gets worse and worse. But by skirting the issue, he gave Obama no platform to continue lying.  Now it has come out that our brave, concerned President was watching the terror in real time,  then went to bed to rest up for a busy campaign event with Beyonce and Jay-Z while our embassy was under attack and no reinforcement were ordered by him.  All Romney needs to do to attack Obama on Libya is let people read the newspaper (although that won’t convince his staunchest followers).

Obama watched the Benghazi attack in real time

He didn’t call for help, and he went to bed.  Then the next day he left for partying and campaigning with Jay-Z and Letterman. Then for 2 weeks he lied to the American public about what happened and how much he knew.   If you reelect him and the investigation continues, I think this is far more serious than Watergate or lying about sex.

Obama destroyed a life time friendship

They had been friends for years—one a Democrat, one a Republican.  But it never mattered before Obama. In 2008 he told his friend what he thought of Obama.

Over the past four years, my friend has lost about everything. His real estate business is defunct. He has sold almost all his toys, including a classic car he had been refurbishing for about eight years. He sold his motorcycles and pretty much has gone into survival mode. He had been an investor in real estate, and he lost all his other properties. And I'd be willing to bet he has even lost the dream house he had acquired years earlier.

I can only imagine what his feelings for Obama are now.

Like the followers of Jim Jones, many Obama followers are finally being made to drink their cyanide-laced Kool-Aid. I wonder if people like my friend have changed their dogmatic stance on the stranger who convinced them to ruin amazing friendships and who caused major rifts in their families.

Obama has been bad not just for politics. Obama has been bad for things that are much bigger than politics. Maybe Obama's election loss will heal the nation in ways that mean much more. What a legacy.

Our Abortion Champion President

198702_377196909022582_657839639_n[1]

Almost 30% of all abortions in U.S. are done by Planned Parenthood; in 2009 its clinics across the nation brought in $404.9 million in revenues. Its CEO earns over $400,000 a year. Why does this "non-profit" need our tax money to kill babies? It's doing so well.

To call abortion "health care" is like calling the electric chair, shock treatment.  40% of abortions kill black babies.

Architects drink the government project Kool-aid

We often see the phrase, "the continuing uncertainty over the federal budget." This means both the failure of the Democratic controlled Senate to pass a budget the last 3 years, and the distrust in the private sector over the rising costs to do business under Obamacare and Obamanomics. When I see that almost 60% of architects support Obama, I realize they took too many art courses in college and not enough business and American history.  And that they are increasingly dependent on government projects, therefore some businesses think Obama's flailing might accidently touch them, although hundreds of firms have closed during his reign.

Karlsberger in Columbus in June 2011 “in a statement on its website said it closed its doors after 83 years in business. Karlsberger is the fourth-largest architectural firm in the region with $18 million in 2009 billings and more than 50 local staff members, the latest figures available, according to Columbus Business First research

The few large firms left in Columbus took their best staff, then let go some long time employees.

Obama campaign borrows from BofA

“Obama For America took out a $15 million loan from Bank of America last month, according to the campaign’s October monthly FEC report. The loan was incurred on September 4 and is due November 14, eight days after the election. OFA received an interest rate of 2.5% plus the current Libor rate.” (LIBOR stands for the London interbank offered rate and is the rate of interest that banks charge to lend money to each other.) 

Also the bank contributed $20 million toward the cost of the Democrat National Convention earlier this year.

I can’t understand it.  The O-Team were raffling off dinners with the President.  Didn’t that raise enough money?

How to lower the price of gasoline—immediately

“Abolishing the ethanol mandate requiring ethanol to be blended with gasoline at the pump or waiving the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) would: (1) lower gasoline prices by millions of dollars; (2) result in billions of miles of free travel annually; (3) prevent millions of tons of additional carbon dioxide from being emitted into the air; and (4) improve national security and the energy picture since it is impossible for US ethanol to ever replace foreign oil imports. PolitiFact was asked to fact-check this but would not do so; therefore, it must be true.”

Are you rational enough to vote?

If party designations were removed and you could not see the color of the candidates' skin, and you could only list accomplishments, how would you vote? 

One candidate has 1) expanded wars without approval of Congress, 2) grown debt to 16 trillion,  3) flipped on marriage after posing as traditional in 2008 to get the evangelical vote, 4)  signed on for embryonic stem cell research after it's been proven unnecessary, 5)  solicited support from the largest abortion provider in the country,  6) supports killing a baby born alive if abortion was intended, 7) covered up a terrible mess right before the election, 8) designated the Ft. Hood massacre as "workplace violence" which denies the victims and families special benefits,  9) has spent more time on comedy shows and golf courses than all the other presidents combined.

The other candidate hasn't done any of that but has been 1) a successful businessman, 2) a governor and is 3) wealthier that the other guy (who's only worth $11 million) and 4) has a plan (not terribly clear) to restore the economy.

Remember—no party, no skin color information.  How would you vote?  How rational is your decision?

Obama needs to apologize to the Ft. Hood survivors and families of victims

The U.S. Department of Defense has ruled the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting a case of workplace violence.

In “The Truth About Fort Hood,” victims express their frustration at the government’s designation, Stars and Stripes reports.

Don’t tell Karen’s Dad

I received an e-mail from Karen—maybe you did too.  My problem is I have 5 or 6 Karens in my contact list, plus others I know with whom I don’t regularly correspond, so I don’t know who Karen is.  Maybe it’s a Tea Party plant?  Trying to show that the opposition of softening?  Maybe it’s a liberal plant, hoping to show the opposition that they haven’t completely undone the Obama support.  She hasn’t answered by return note, so here it is:

I am sick and tired of politics!

Over the last couple of years, there has been a lot of tension over politics, and that division has intruded into my relationship with family and friends -- particularly now with the upcoming election.

In 2008, I voted for Obama. That was my right -- I am a good person and I voted for him for good reasons. But that decision has created stress between some of us, and that has been hurtful. Yes, sometimes I have thrown Obama in your face and I am sorry about that -- I truly am.

Here is the thing. I don't think you are stupid because you voted for McCain in '08, and I'm not stupid because I voted for Barack Obama. We both want our country to go in the right direction, but we just have a difference of opinion as to what that direction is, and I'm entitled to my opinion.

I didn't vote for Obama because of all the "hope and change" stuff. I voted for him because I could relate to him on so many levels and I trusted him. If this guy were my neighbor, I would give him the key to my house. I admire the fact that from his very difficult childhood and struggles rose a candidate for president of the Untied States -- and an African-American with an unusual name!

I could relate to his desire to help people who most need it, to help the poor and elderly, children without medical care, and women in need. It seems like Republicans want to cut the important things people need most, and help the rich get richer. I feel like Republicans think Obama supporters are stupid.

I was excited that Obama was going to end the policies of George Bush. I have to tell you, I really didn't like George Bush, and though I still feel that way about him, after four years it's not as clear to me why.

But Obama against McCain, that was easy. Obama is more like me, energetic, young, loves his family.

I got a glimpse of the Obama motorcade on arrival for the debates here in Denver, and that was cool -- though it held up a lot of traffic, which was not cool.
I watched this year's first presidential debate closely and was disappointed in Obama. I found him depressing.

However, the Barack Obama I saw in the second debate the other night is the Obama I voted for in '08!

He was "hitting on all cylinders" as Dad would say ... but he wouldn't about Obama, would he. ;-)

I woke up Wednesday morning feeling invigorated. I had a chance to talk about the debate with friends, and some agreed with me. That was "the real Obama" seemed to be the consensus, but my two best friends didn't share my enthusiasm.
Later in the day, I ran into some friends who agreed that Obama won the debate -- but they had some harsh criticism. One of my colleagues at the University said to me that she felt betrayed, like she had been tricked into voting for Obama the first time. A guy friend was much more callous, saying that he was now convinced that Obama was a phony and a liar.

These two people were Obama's biggest fans in '08. Did they watch the same debate I watched Tuesday?

Last night I had the uneasy feeling that something wasn't right, something was out of place. After all the good vibes with the debate, I now find myself wondering if Obama was sincere, or if what I heard was just talk aimed at "emotional women," like I'm not smart enough to vote on what I think rather than how I feel.

And the more I think about all his comments Tuesday night, against the backdrop of the reality that things have gotten much worse in the last four years, not better as he seemed to claim, I'm not sure I trust Obama anymore. I'm more concerned now than I was in '08.

I think that Obama is still a good person and he wanted to do good things, but I'm bothered by the fact that he didn't take responsibility for where our economy is now. That troubles me the most. It seems like he hasn't grown into the job and hasn't done much of anything he said he would do, and he's still blaming George Bush. Meanwhile, the number of unemployed citizens and poor families has grown a lot.

So why am I writing you?

I know Mitt Romney is a genuine person who really does love his family, who really does care about people from all walks of life. Part of me doesn't like the fact that part of me likes Romney! I am conflicted. I'm not writing to say that I am voting for Romney, but I have decided not to vote for Obama.

Don't tell Dad or I'll never hear the end of it!
Karen

What is also part of the cover-up

Obama’s Middle East policy is a disaster.  Maybe you didn’t like Bush’s policies in Afghanistan and Iraq, but at least he got the approval of Congress—Republicans and Democrats.  Obama has seriously expanded the war, with no approval from us via our representatives, and the guns are about as secure as they were in Fast and Furious.  Here the NYT actually puts the bad news in the lede:

Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster, according to American officials and Middle Eastern diplomats.

That conclusion, of which President Obama and other senior officials are aware from classified assessments of the Syrian conflict that has now claimed more than 25,000 lives, casts into doubt whether the White House’s strategy of minimal and indirect intervention in the Syrian conflict is accomplishing its intended purpose of helping a democratic-minded opposition topple an oppressive government, or is instead sowing the seeds of future insurgencies hostile to the United States.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/15/world/middleeast/jihadists-receiving-most-arms-sent-to-syrian-rebels.html?_r=0

Obama has Muslim Brotherhood members advising him.  This has to stop.  We have a system for selecting advisers.

Op-Ed by Victor Davis Hanson

"In the final debate, Romney will know in advance that the moderator will be biased, that Obama will get more time, that Obama will snicker and interrupt, that Obama will go negative early and long — and that Romney himself has the proven disposition, skill, and information to fend the tag team off, and resonate with voters who are getting ever more savvy after each debate to what is going on. Some sympathetic Romney supporters had been critical of missed opportunities in the vice-presidential debate and the second presidential one, but the wondrous part is not that their missing an opening now and then, but instead how well they have done against the moderators, the distractions, and the rawness. To paraphrase Wellington at Waterloo, I think by now we know that Obama will come on in the same old way, and that Romney will send him back in the same old way — and the polls will show it."

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/330945/romney-should-be-encouraged-victor-davis-hanson

The Obama Record

Tuesday night at the debate, Mitt Romney summed it up: "We have fewer people working today than we had when the president took office. The unemployment rate was 7.8 percent when he took office; it's 7.8 percent now. But if you calculated that unemployment rate, taking back the people who dropped out of the workforce, it would be 10.7 percent [today]." He later added, "I look at what's happened in the last four years and say this has been a disappointment. We can do better than this. We don't have to settle for ... 43 months with unemployment above 8 percent, 23 million Americans struggling to find a good job right now. There are 3.5 million more women living in poverty today than when the president took office. We don't have to live like this. We can get this economy going again."

Obama and FDR

           

We scratch our heads that people still support Obama despite his failures in the domestic economy and the foreign scene, particularly the Middle East where he’s interfered in civil wars and lost more American soldier in 3 years than Bush did in 8 . Yet, Americans kept reelecting FDR during the Great Depression (including my sainted mother), and unemployment was as high as 25% and in 1942 he imprisoned or put in camps almost a million Americans of Italian, German and Japanese ethnicity. There's just no accounting for political blinders.

FDR particularly hurt blacks and poor with minimum wage legislation which is always a job killer at the bottom ranks; lots of minor taxes that hurt the poor the most—like movies and candy; also wouldn't support anti-lynching legislation, snubbed Jesse Owens and Joe Lewis, allowed unions to keep out blacks; manipulated public works programs for votes. But . . .to this day he is revered by blacks and minorities. It seems people found him charming and believed his lies. Sound familiar?

Fifty percent?

185126_10151284418827650_446251271_n[1]

I’m shocked 50% could still support Obama after the massive cover up, bigger than Watergate, in which no one died.

GOP women have binders; Democrat women have blinders

From the debate transcript, a comment that Democrats find so hilarious it completely made them forget about 4 dead Americans and a campaign cover-up:

"ROMNEY: And -- and so we -- we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women's groups and said, "Can you help us find folks," and they brought us whole binders full of women."
Now they can talk of nothing else.

a little-known part of ObamaCare, levies a 3.8 percent Medicare tax on investment income for couples making more than $250,000 or individuals making more than $200,000 a year. The tax is scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2013.

7 new taxes: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/29/Seven-new-taxes

Religious tolerance? Think again.

Back when Hillary Clinton was still blaming the internet for the Benghazi terrorist attack, she made this odd statement, "Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation." There was no religious tolerance at the beginning of our nation when we were English, French and Spanish colonies, nor is it a Biblical value or ethic. True, Catholics and Protestants weren't slaughtering each other like they did in Europe, but those who came here for religious freedom really didn't want other groups, or the STATE, telling them how to worship or act.

One of the geniuses of our Bill of Rights is that our Founders were able to get all these disparate groups to actually agree that religious freedom was primary to all other freedoms. The Northwest Ordinance (1787) preceded the Bill of Rights, and also enshrined the idea the state couldn't decide your religious beliefs and behavior.

And now with 70% of the world without religious freedom, and even outright religious oppression and terrorism, our current President wants to diminish what centuries of Christians and Jews died for--not tolerance, not non-judgementalism, not political correctness--but religious freedom. The HHS Mandate is the camel's nose in the tent.

Good-bye Newsweek

It’s been announced that the print edition disappears at the end of the year.  I read the digital edition, The Daily Beast, just so I’m up on the loony tunes liberals.  It’s just unbelievable.  They are hysterical over “binders full of women” but pretty quiet about Benghazi. They even swear with a straight face that Obama “won on points” the last debate. (Apparently there were no points for the truth.)  Tina Brown made her name in women’s and gossip magazines.  I just don’t think she’s a good fit for serious news.

On the expanding wars

The left says they support Barack 0bama because he won't get us into unnecessary wars. B0 has been using drones to bomb countries in the Middle East, and has American Soldiers in up to 7 countries at this point. More American soldiers have been killed since Obama has been president than during the 8 years Bush was president. Their argument about Obama and war is illogical and contrary to proven facts.

Also, Big Bird has been mentioned as often during the debates as veterans.  Think about it!

Where’s your plan, Mr. President?

TIME MAGAZINE’S MARK HALPERIN: “I just want to say one thing we haven’t brought up yet, but it’s incredibly important. The President did not lay out a second-term agenda. And if there’s an undercurrent here, that could really hurt him, not in the room, because it wasn’t evident, it was absent. He didn’t lay out a second term agenda any more than he did in the first debate. And that is where he is the weakest. And he didn’t address it, I thought at all.”

MSNBC’S JOE SCARBOROUGH: “Looking for a way forward, you want to know what’s going to be different over the next four years and you just didn’t get that from Barack Obama. And I’ve just got to think after the second debate this president has laid out no plan for the next four years. No plan. That’s got to be devastating in some voters’ eyes.”

NBC NEWS’ DAVID GREGORY: “I think liberals can breathe a sigh of relief. It’s not curtains for the president. He showed up and showed up big tonight. He was more aggressive; he had a lot of fight in him. A little light on his vision for the future.”

CNN’s JOHN KING: “If people think you have a plan, likability comes into play. The president has still left a whole lot of people, as I’ve been traveling the last few weeks, this is what people say, I want to vote for him, but he hasn’t told me what he’s going to do.”

NEW YORK TIMES’ TOM FRIEDMAN: “I continue to believe Obama has a weakness when it comes to the question of will the next four years really be different? Do you have a plan that excites you and me to get out of my chair and say that’s the guy, that’s it, that’s the person I want to follow now. He has not closed that deal.”

POLITICO’S BEN WHITE: “But Obama was far less effective in making an affirmative case for a second term, saying only that he wanted to create more manufacturing jobs and reduce the debt and deficit and keep investing in alternative energy sources. Romney had his strongest moments ripping up Obama’s first term record, citing the persistently high jobless rate, the rising debt and the lack of action on Social Security, Medicare and immigration reform. Obama mainly tried to refresh his campaign’s initial – and largely successful – disqualification effort against Romney rather than making a strong pitch for a second term vision.”

WSJ EDITORIAL: “Judging by Tuesday’s debate, the president’s argument for re-election is basically this: He’s not as awful as Mitt Romney. Mr. Obama spent most of his time attacking either Mr. Romney himself (he invests in Chinese companies), his tax plan as a favor for the rich (‘that’s been his history’) or this or that statement he has made over the last year (‘the 47%,’ which Mr. Obama saved for the closing word of the entire debate).”

FORMER NEW YORK GOV. ELIOT SPITZER: “We shouldn’t be blind to what continues to be the soft underbelly of the president’s campaign, which is that when all is said and done, you didn’t leave last night with a real tangible sense of what the second term agenda is going to be.”

The Benghazi cover up and why

Why did the White House persist with the phony story of a protest against a video being the cause of Ambassador Stevens' death, when they had to know there was no protest?

The most plausible explanation is that the truth -- we were being hit with the worst terror attack since 9/11 in a city we saved -- would have exposed Obama's boasting about his Libya triumph and al-Qaida being "on the run" and "on the path to defeat" as absurd propaganda.

Al-Qaida is now in Libya, Mali, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Pakistan.

And the epidemic of anti-American riots across the Muslim world, with Arab Spring elections bringing to power Islamist regimes, testify to the real truth. After four years of Obama, it is America that is on the run in the Middle East.

But we can't let folks find that out until after Nov. 6.

Hence the Benghazi cover-up.

From Mike Huckabee on refurbishing mosques

Why is our State Department spending your tax money to build mosques in the Middle East? Frontpage magazine reports that there there’s a little-publicized federal program to refurbish mosques in 27 Islamic countries. Using federal money to save religious buildings is illegal, but they get around that by calling it developmental aid. The idea is that refurbishing mosques will convince Islamists to respect other cultures. And how’s that working? In nations where we’re rebuilding mosques – Pakistan, Egypt, Afghanistan, Sudan, Kenya and more -- dozens of Christian churches have been burned to the ground by angry Muslim mobs. So far, no protests from the left. I wonder what they’d say if we started using federal money to rebuild the Christian churches?

Will women swing to Romney?

Christians for Mitt says: “Goodbye, Obama! USA Today says that WOMEN in swing states are swinging towards Romney & Ryan! Why? Because we want jobs, national security, our consciences and families honored, religious liberty -- we want America back!”

As the presidential campaign heads into its final weeks, the survey of voters in 12 crucial swing states finds female voters much more engaged in the election and increasingly concerned about the deficit and debt issues that favor Romney. The Republican nominee has pulled within one point of the president among women who are likely voters, 48%-49%, and leads by 8 points among men.

The Obama full team press

Joe Pags summary of the debate Tuesday 10/16:  “Just a quick note to all before I turn in for a few hours.. . I realize we have some liberals here. Don't get frustrated by them. They'll repeat the Obama and lefty lies and think if they say it enough, people will start to believe them. The truth ALWAYS wins. The truth is, one man was spinning and lying tonight and the other was telling the truth and showing his leadership. For that reason alone, Romney wins. .”

Debt relief for students–big give away for wealthy

The student loan bubble will be the next housing bubble, and I haven't heard much about it during this campaign. It's being kicked down the road for the next administration--perhaps Romney will get the blame instead of Bush (if Obama is reelected, we know Bush will be blamed). But according to an article in today’s New York Times it seems the new changes in student debt relief will benefit the wealthy, not the poor.

Surprise! Where would jobs for liberals come from it they didn't create a permanent low-income class?

“. . . the changes introduced by the Obama administration could allow a graduate making $70,000 a year to reduce monthly payments to $448 a month and “have over $100,000 of debt forgiven, . . .  If you are low-income, it doesn’t really give you a big bang,” said Jason Delisle, one of the authors of the study, which estimates that monthly payments for low-income borrowers would drop to $20, from $25, under the changes. “If you are high-income and have a lot of debt, this is a huge giveaway.”

Biden caught in another lie—this time football

Who and when he played against in the 1960s during his college career is not as important as lying about Benghazi or voting for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (which he lied about during the debate), it does however speak to his character, or worse, his long term memory.

Biden did not play football at the University of Delaware in 1961, 1962, 1963, or 1964, according to past yearbooks nor was he in the student directory in 1963.

"During a campaign stop in Athens, Ohio, on Saturday, Vice President Joe Biden said the last time he was in the town, playing against the Ohio University football team in 1963, he almost got arrested for walking into a girls' dormitory," CBS News Online reported last month.”
