Sarah Lousie Heath Palin

Palin was born Sarah Louise Heath in Sandpoint, Idaho, U.S.A., the daughter of Sarah Heath (née Sheeran), a school secretary, and Charles R. Heath, a science teacher and track coach. She has English, Irish, and German ancestry. Her family moved to Alaska when she was an infant. She and her father would sometimes wake at 3 a.m. to hunt moose before school, and the family regularly ran 5K and 10K races.

Sarah, born February 11, 1964, is the current Governor of the US state of Alaska and the presumptive Republican vice presidential nominee for the 2008 United States presidential election.

If Obama wins the presidency, we will face eight years of his socialistic tax-and-spend welfare-to-the-world government. As Hillary said... no how, no way.

If McCain wins the presidency, he will not win or serve a second term, setting the stage for a Palin-Clinton race.

Hands down, I prefer a moose-hunting soccer Mom to any Clinton on earth.


The way the press is piling on her with just about any negative they can generate convinces me she has the Obots running scared.

That is a good sign indeed.

A Feeling Of Dread

John Derbyshire pretty well nails it:
I don’t want either of these men in charge of the federal government, neither the crazy old fool nor the simpering sophomore. I don’t want either the moralistic imperialism of John McCain or the welfare-state-to-the world sentimentalism of Barack Obama. I don’t want my country represented by either a Compassionate Crusader or by Oprah Winfrey in drag.
... For this is the most disastrously awful choice Americans have ever been offered for the post of chief executive.
A feeling of dread? Yes, about the next four years.

John's final shot in his article:
What a disaster! What on earth has happened to us? Nothing yet as bad as what will surely happen if either of these two gibbering numbskulls gets his hands on the levers of supreme executive power.

Hatchet Men

From an article by John McCormick and Steve Schmadeke:
DENVER -- Sen. Barack Obama's campaign organized its supporters Wednesday night to confront Tribune-owned WGN-AM in Chicago for having a critic of the Illinois Democrat on its air.

"WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears," Obama's campaign wrote in an e-mail to supporters. "He's currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers."
Biden, Obama's chosen one, is being trumpeted by the national media as the hatchet man for the lighbringer, the man who will attack McCain with similar baseless, fear-mongering smears, along with the obligatory and expected lies, distortions and manipulations, thereby keeping the "man the world has waited for" well above the fray.

I know, a bit sickening, but I am only repeating what has been said by others.

Smoke and mirrors, smoke and mirrors. Biden is Barak's Lieberman. Although Biden will no doubt say many nasty things about McCain, his real job will be to ensure that a President Obama does not change the status quo with Israel. Biden and Lieberman - sheepherders both - will have the job of ensuring that the United States, under the "leadership" of it's next president, does not drift from it's long-term and disastrous foreign policies that have put Israel before all else. Those two men - in actuality foreign agents - are no more Americans than Fidel Castro was.

Israel, a foreign nation that has total control of our media and our Congress, could give a damn who our next president is, so long as they have their "man" pulling the strings behind the scenes at the White House, ensuring that the next president does not "embarrass", harm or hamper Israel in any way.

Both Biden and Lieberman should sew Israeli flags on their shirt sleeves, since Israel is the place they promote and support first and foremost, with America's interests running a very distant second. Then, at least, we could refer to them as "honest", if nothing else.

If McCain does not choose Lieberman as his VP, expect a man - or woman - whose Jewish allegiances are unquestioned.

Some Answers On Rising Costs

From a recent article:
Why are American fuel prices approaching $5 per gallon? Why are food and electricity prices on their way to doubling? Why are economic conditions chaotic? The reason is simple. Americans no longer possess the freedom to produce the goods and services required to maintain their former standard of living. Taxation – both direct and indirect through currency inflation, runaway government regulation and government-sponsored-and-encouraged litigation have reduced the productivity of Americans below that required to maintain their way of life. This tyranny – this economic slavery – has been produced entirely by the federal and state governments of the United States.
It's worth the read, it's not too long, and has some real answers for those who really want to know.

An additional comment from the article:
There are no resource limitations, technological limitations or geopolitical reasons for the current energy shortages and high prices. These shortages and prices are solely the result of taxation, regulation and litigation that have stifled American energy-producing industries.
Pretty damning, if true, and here we are, arguing over which Washington insider we want as our next president.


"I Hate That Bitch"

Did Michelle Obama actually say that? Here's what Joseph Cannon says over at Cannonfire:
Did you see Michelle Obama as Hillary spoke? She glared daggers. Her eyes radiated hatred. Her smile seemed broad and unforced only at the mention of Joe Biden's name -- after all, Biden was given the nod in the face of overwhelming pressure to choose the despised Hillary. (Word has it that Michelle muttered "I hate that bitch" while Hillary spoke.)
I would love to find more confirmation on this.

More to the point, what is the source of that hatred? Because Hillary had the cajones to run against Barak? Black on white hatred? A bit of both?

The answer is critical.

TB Scare

Good grief:
SAN FRANCISCO -- Kaiser Permanente is contacting 960 mothers whose babies may have been exposed to a health care worker in San Francisco who has an active case of tuberculosis.
The worker was assigned to the postpartum unit in the maternity ward of Kaiser's San Francisco Medical Center to care for mothers and infants.

This is in a San Francisco hospital, and I will bet even money that there is more than one health care worker there with HIV or full-blown AIDS, and nobody is testing for this, primarily because of pressure from homosexual advocate groups and supporters. The presence of HIV/AIDS contacted from a infected hospital worker may go undetected for years.

Why are not they worried about this? Undetected HIV/AIDS carriers in a hospital will - by necessity - handle all manner of food, material and equipment given to or used by patients.

Sweeping HIV/AIDS under the rug nowadays - because it is presently politically correct - will carry massive consequences for us all in the near future.

Single Motherhood

A modern feminist success story:
Four years ago she seemed to have it all. A good job. Two little girls she loved. And a newly renovated home in Roseville for the three of them to enjoy.
But the good job goes south, she loses the fancy renovated home, so her solution was to kill everybody... with a kitchen knife and an axe.

The question arises as to how and why a half-century old single woman was allowed to adopt anything other than a few cats. At her age, the chances of her living long enough to see the kids through high school are close to zero.

Common sense says that half-century old single women have already demonstrated that they are not family material, and are way beyond the upper age limit for ramping up a brand-new family, good job or not, fancy house or not, offshore orphans or not.

Seriously, who the hell let something like this happen?

If Looks Could Kill...

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Liberman Wasn't Available

Obama picks Joe Biden for his VP.

I would have been less surprised if he had picked Halle Berry. At least she would have made the ticket easier to look at.

McCain spokesman Ben Porritt said:
There has been no harsher critic of Barack Obama's lack of experience than Joe Biden.
He said further that Biden has denounced Barack Obama's poor foreign policy judgment and has strongly argued in his own words what Americans are quickly realizing -- that Barack Obama is not ready to be President.

Earlier this year - while running against Obama - Biden said that nominating someone without national security credentials would be a "tragic mistake" and further said that the presidency "is not something that lends itself to on-the-job-training."

Well, that's all true, but since when has any of that mattered to the American voters? Obama must surely be thinking about how we all elected George Bush, a man who didn't have - and still doesn't - any credentials worth talking about either.

But it makes sense, if you dig under the surface just a bit.

Why did Obama pick one of his most vocal and damaging critics? Because of Biden's impressive record of supporting all things Israel. When Biden had previously criticized Obama for his "poor foreign policy judgment", that was Beltline codespeak for a lack of support on Washington's "Israel First" foreign policy, a foreign policy that's unbeatable for Israel but disastrous for America.

Obama, being a product of the Chicago political machine, had little to no experience in giving the Jews what they demand from America on a daily basis, but since his run for the presidency, he has been educated on just how much they determine American politics. So, he selects a man with impeccable Jewish support, and vice-versa. It will greatly help in getting "American" Jews to vote for him.

That's why.

More To The Picture

Mulling over my previous post, "We're All Going To DIE!", I realized something not mentioned in the article or discussed in any manner whatever.

If a foreign power were to detonate a nuclear device 250 miles above the United States that created a credible EMP wave, there is no doubt whatever that nuclear devices would be detonating all over the United States and that foreign power at the same time, in what would be total nuclear war.

A nuclear-triggered EMP device detonated at 250 miles altitude would have to have been delivered by an incoming ICBM along with many other incoming ICBM's, tracked by our forces, reported as hostile to the president on the red phone, who would then use his nuclear football in response.

Nobody is going to launch just one ICBM with a nuclear warhead at us with the hope we will just sit here on our thumbs.

I know, I know, the theory is that this EMP weapon would knock out our ability to track more incoming ICBM's, make us blind and mute for the critical time period between detection of a massive wave of incoming ICBM's and the time it would take for them to destroy our ICBM force, our ability to respond. This line of thought overlooks all our spy satellites, our nuclear subs that patrol world-wide, our military bases in other nations, and the dismal fact that those forces are required to launch at their pre-assigned targets after a certain length of time in which they receive no communications from the White House or our military command centers. They will launch their missiles if communications fail. It's a fail-safe kind of thing, scary, but real.

Only an absolute lunatic would want to destroy our communications network. No doubt there are a few of them out there, but - so far - they do not have access to EMP devices and ICBM's.

A non-nuclear EMP device, perhaps available to a small country or a group of terrorists with lots of money, would have an effective radius of only yards, light-years away from the ability to destroy all our electronics nationwide.

In a real attack, millions of people worldwide would be dying, entire cites would be getting destroyed, both the attacking foreign power and the United States would be finished as viable nations in a matter of minutes, civilization as we know it would be ending, and nuclear winter would be on the way.

A non-working radio or TV - even if actually disabled by some remote "massive EMP wave" - would be the least of our worries.

Having an EMP attack against us is just a small part of the whole picture. It's that total nuclear exchange we need to be worried about.

Fretting over the effects a possible EMP wave in a nuclear world war is like fretting over your wet sneakers in the middle of a state-wide flood.

Priorities, priorities. Gotta worry abut the right things. Maybe that's why the Department of Homeland Defence has an EMP attack so far down on the the scale of worries.

Always keep in mind those nuclear submarines of ours. They have enough firepower to destroy entire nations all by themselves, and they can't be rendered ineffective by any kind of external EMP device, period. And they will launch after a short and critical period of silence.

We're All going To DIE!

The sky Is Falling... Again:
Electricity grids down, uncontrolled fires from exploding gas transport systems, no communication to call for help, no water to battle fires: It's all part of a catastrophic scenario some scientists predict could happen under an electromagnetic pulse attack...
This fear-mongering rant, written by some female named Chelsea Schilling, is totally devoid of any scientific fact that would support such blather. The apparent source for her information is from "some scientists", unnamed, unquoted, unverified. However, Chelsea goes on to mention:
... and the Department of Homeland Security's 83-page emergency plan includes no mention of EMP or how it might respond to such an attack.
Imagine that. The Department of Homeland Security - an organization that has it's own set of problems with understanding reality - does not consider an EMP threat as very credible. Why? Perhaps, some of their scientists actually understand the inverse square law, and realize that an EMP device - no matter how large - exploded 250 miles up in the atmosphere would hardly cause a magnetic ripple on the surface 250 miles below.

But, that apparently does not carry any water for Chelsea. Stuff that that just gets in the way of a good story.

She does use statements from the likes of non-scientist William R. Graham, chairman of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse(EMP) to boost her story.

Bet you didn't even know we had an EMP Commission. Claims Graham:
But the most threatening and terrifying type of EMP attack could come following a blast from a nuclear weapon 25 to 250 miles above the Earth's surface. Like a swift stroke of lightening, EMP could immediately disrupt and damage all electronic systems and America's electrical infrastructure.
Wow... All of America's electronic systems. It would certainly appear that Graham, big shot Chairman or not, is just another hack that - and like Chelsea - has no clue about the inverse square law either.

And You Think You've Had A Bad Day?

How not to spend your day:
CHATSWORTH, Ont. - An 18-year-old woman from Guelph, Ont., is facing charges after she allegedly stripped naked on a highway, ran into a cow pasture and threw mud and feces at police officers.
And That's not all, folks...

She had been involved in two hit-and-runs earlier that day:

She smeared cow dung and blood all over an officer:

Burned herself while trying to escape on a nearby motorcycle:

Then spit at the cops when nothing else seemed to work.

And I'll just bet nobody bothered to pick up her clothes.

So some jackass cut you off on the freeway this morning? Forget it.

Confidence.. Or Arrogance?

At a California fundraiser, a "confident" Barak Obama said:
I will win. Don’t worry about that.
The dude in not even nominated yet, supremely confident that there will be no convention surprise, perhaps one orchestrated by the democratic power brokers who are starting to realize what a mistake they - and the media - have made. He must be ignorng the trend in national polls also, the ones that show a steady erosion of his support.

At the fundraiser, he was warmly received by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called him "a leader that God has blessed us with at this time."

You just gotta love that... God has blessed us with Obama. Not the little "g" god, but the big "G" God. Imagine what a statement like that does to the ego of a guy like Obama, who already considers himself to be the "lightbringer", the "Messiah", the man the "world has waited for".

Next thing they'll be trying to convince us of is that Democrat Nancy Pelosi is actually a religious person - subject to heavenly visions - after making such a sweepingly awesome claim like that.

Yep, the democrats have brought religion into this race, but to be used as a tool... to elevate themselves. Many Christians, being the gullible suckers they are, are going around saying that the Democrats have "seen the light". Nothing could be further from the truth.

And here comes Barak Obama, glowing in the dark... just another typical Washington beltliner, talker of the big talk, promising all manner of "change".

Want to know what Obama will do if he gets to the White House? Look at his Senate record... it's all there.

Another California "Marriage"

Ellen DeGeneres has gotten married, to a much younger - and more gullible - female, the kind that these older sexual deviates love to prey on.

Dear fifty-year-old Ellen wore pants, and dressed all in white.

For crying out loud... WHITE!

White was - once upon a time - a color used to signify the purity and innocence of the bride, but when there is no purity or innocence involved, color must not matter.

Isn't the above photo just positively darling? We have the frail and demure "female" dressed in long, frilly and lacy pink(NOT white), while the short-haired macho-dude "male" is suited up, all manly like, maybe ready to go out and sell some fried chicken... if "he" can just get that Van Dyke(no pun intended) beard going.

No doubt they plan on adopting something... maybe a dog, or a cat, perhaps a younger male sheep. After all, it is California.

La Migra! Salvese El Que Pueda!

You have to read this giant whine over what happened to a bunch of illegals in the small town of Postville, Iowa.

A meat packing plant that employed many Guatemalan and Mexican illegals was raided by ICE and almost instantly the moaning, the crying, and sad-song-singing started up, not in Mexico, or Guatemala, but here... in the United States.

Read this unmitigated pap:
For years, even decades, these Mexican and Guatemalan families had called Postville home. Here, in a place first settled by German and Norwegian Lutherans and Irish Catholics more than 150 years ago, Hispanic immigrants were raising children, buying houses, building businesses.

Like the Hasidic Jews who came to the town in 1987 to open the meatpacking plant, and the Eastern Europeans who made up the first band of workers there, the influx of Guatemalans and Mexicans had both buffeted and bolstered this quiet community - until it reached a new cultural equilibrium.

In time, the newcomers became part of the fabric of Postville, which proudly bills itself as "Hometown to the World." Now, they were clustered in hiding or being herded away in handcuffs by immigration agents.
What is so damned hard to understand that all those Eastern European immigrants came here legally? That all those Guatemalans and Mexicans did not? That all those Guatemalans and Mexicans broke our laws? That they illegally entered the United States, lied about their backgrounds and nationalities, stole names and social security numbers from us, and then stole jobs from real Americans?

These illegals did not become "part of the fabric of Postville". They became the unmentioned and untalked about dirty little secret of the Postville business community. These law-breaking, low-wage thieves have stolen real jobs and livelihoods from real Americans, and yet they think they have some sort of "right" to just keep on keeping on.

They don't. They are law breakers and here illegally. Round them up, fingerprint them, photograph them, and them deport them. Give them all a little printed blurb - en espanol - that if they want back in, they need to apply at the nearest U.S. Embassy in Mexico, or Guatemala, or wherever, then learn to speak fluent English, learn American history, and finally, take the citizenship test that all legal immigrants had to take... and pass.

These whining, clueless losers like the author if this article on Postville should be laughed out of town. If this witless female loves these illegals so much, ship her out with them, back to Mexico, or Guatemala, or wherever, so she can glory and wallow in the conditions and situations those people have created for themselves in their own countries, but don't want to set straight.

Just ignore her and her ilk, what with all her whining and sad-song-singing about these law-breaking thieves - these illegals - and expose her for what she is... a non-thinking female, witlessly riding the wrong horse into battle... on the wrong side.

We used to have stories about the "headless horseman". No need for that today. Now we have bunches of "headless horsepersons", galloping around aimlessly, stirring up great clouds of dust, making loud but sensless noises... And making lemmings look positively intellectual.

"Above My Pay Grade"

Wow, what an answer.

Barak Obama, a man who strongly supports abortion, was asked at what point a baby gets “human rights”. Said Obama:
… Whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade.
Whether he is pro-abortion or anti-abortion is not the issue here... whether he has the guts to state his position on the subject IS.

"Above my pay grade".

What else may this man consider above his pay grade?

If he doesn't have the balls to answer clearly - one way or the other - he doesn't have what it takes to be president.

Remember Harry Truman's little sign on his Oval Office desk? The one that said "The buck stops here"? For those of you who say "huh?", we used to have a saying, "passing the buck", which meant pawning off responsibility to someone else further up the line. And there was/is no more up-line than the president.

Truman made the decision to drop the A-bomb on Japan, effectively ending WW2, and in the process, killed tens of thousands of human beings, most of whom were non-combatants. You know... Civilians. Women, children, babies, grandmothers, shopkeepers, paperboys, etc.

Now try and tell me that a man who hasn't the guts to tell you his position on human life - one way or the other - will have the what it takes to make a decision like that.

The Democrats have very little time left to correct their onerous mistake of lionizing and elevating a man who is now rapidly souring in the heat of public exposure.

A point to ponder... how many of you would even be here if your Mom and Dad had supported abortion?

Just asking...

Atta Boy Bush

President Bush postponed his summer vacation at his Texas ranch because of the crisis in Georgia.

One day.

Said Bush:
Got a lot of folks, smart folks analyzing the situation on the ground...
Well OK, a lot of smart folks. That certainly disqualifies George Bush. He might as well go play with his cows in Crawford... The four-legged ones.

Let's see here...Russia is threatening Poland with nuclear retaliation, is moving troops deeper into Georgia, is stealing our weapons , and so George Bush sends super-lightweight Condi Rice (now there's a real side-splitter) to go scold the Russians, and then runs off to Crawford.

Like a typical bully, Bush can start fights with the small fry, but when the big boys show up, he disappears.

Whoever the next president may be, the poor sucker will have a huge mess to clean up after George W. Bush, and - sadly - the present front runners are just not up to the task.

Missing The Boat Into The Future

The above is a photo of a galaxy, just one of the countless billions of galaxies in the universe. Hell of a thing to throw away.

This from the blog of Jane Gross, a single and childless woman:
As a single childless woman, I share the fear of my readers, above, and no amount of financial preparation for a prolonged old age calms me. For sure, my long-term care insurance policy will buy me a home health aide and pay to retrofit my house if I’m able to remain here, or contribute to care in another setting. I have the luxury of savings and a mortgage that will be paid off by the time I’m 70. If I need a geriatric case manager, I’ll probably be able to afford one. I count my blessings.

But, having witnessed the "new old age" from a front-row seat, I’m haunted by the knowledge that there is no one who will care about me in the deepest and most loving sense of the word at the end of my life. No one who will advocate for me, not simply for adequate care but for the small and arguably inessential things that can make life worth living even in compromised health.
How does one respond to something like that? It is always a personal choice - to stay single and childless - so she is now reaping the fruits, or lack thereof, generated by her decisions. She will die alone, with only the county coroner (maybe) to say goodbye. But sadly, like so many of her generation, she thinks only of herself, how she will feel at the end, and nothing of what she and her progeny may have contributed to the future, what may have been lost.

If you are an optimist and believe in the future of mankind, you also believe that -someday - humankind will spread throughout the stars in this endlessly vast universe. What a horrid thought it might be for those who chose to terminate their line, a line of ancestors that stretches back to the dawn of time, that the progeny of them all will never be a part of mankind's incredible future.

Their DNA, their uniqueness, their unknowable contributions to the future, will be lost forever.

Now that's real death.

She Has Found Two?

A team of archaeologists in Israel has unearthed what's claimed to be the royal seal of an Old Testament bigwig who is said to have tossed the prophet Jeremiah down a well.

Team leader Dr. Eilat Mazar of Jerusalem's Hebrew University says the imprint was found in clay, astonishingly well-preserved, bearing the name of Gedaliah, the son of Pashur.

Amazing. but wait, this is not the only one she's found:
In 2005, Mazar found another seal with the name of Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, who is mentioned twice in the prophet's book. That artifact was found in a stone structure Mazar believes was part of King David's ancient palace.
Even more amazing... this woman has found not one, but two amazing artifacts in a scant three years.

*****Dr. Eilat Mazar, Finder of Incredibly Rare Stuff*****

Has anybody thought to carbon date these fantastic finds? And this latest one is "amazingly well preserved". It would be... if it had been manufactured in the last few years or so.

The history of archeology is littered with fake discoveries made by archaeologists lusting for recognition - or by fanatics wanting to create "proof" to support the Old Testament stories, so I suggest holding off on the champagne until these things are verified by an independent - non Jewish and reliable - source.

Makes me wonder just how many of all theses relics that supposedly support the O.T. which have been found by digging around in Middle East ruins is actually real and truly authentic, or just fakes that have been unquestionably accepted by those whose only wish in life is to "believe".

A Jewish archaeologist, educated at a Jewish University, finding Incredibly rare and historic stuff... to support an old Jewish story.

Maybe you can understand why I'm a bit skeptical.

From On High

Pretty snazzy for a "presumptive" candidate:
Barack Obama’s new campaign plane is nothing short of grand. Well, for the candidate that is.

Obama’s section of the plane rivals that of any first class. Recently the front cabin of the Boeing 757 was retrofitted to install four individual chairs that resemble La-Z-Boys. They are free-standing and made of plush leather with pockets on the sides. There is also a booth which seats four for a meeting or a meal.
*********The "Lightbringers" Airborne Throne***********

His refreshment table pictured above... better than any Wow mage could ever come up with.

This guy hasn't even been nominated yet... and look at his conduct. Makes me wonder just how he will change the Oval Office to suit his status as "The Awaited One".

Rememeber Nixon? All he wanted was to dress the White House guards to look like the British dudes that guard the queen.

If Obama does not get elected, he will still have taken the ride of his life, thanks to the hundreds of millions of dollars the O-bots have showered on him.

AIDS Worse Than Assumed

A new system for detecting AIDS at the Center for Disease Control reveals more bad news:
CDC's first estimates from this new system reveal that the HIV epidemic is -- and has been -- worse than previously known.
And guess which population groups are leading the way?
The data really confirm that there is a severe impact of this epidemic among gay and bisexual men in the United States ... as well as black men and women...
The numbers, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, confirm that black Americans are seven times more likely to be infected than whites.
Seems the boogeyman in the closet is still with us... and not under the medical control we have been led to believe.

Hide your daughters... and sons . The people spreading this epidemic are still on the loose.

The Olympics As A career

Just like the WWE, the Olympics are fast becoming sports "entertainment":
BEIJING (Reuters) - When Laurie Lever turned 60 last October, the last thing on his mind was retirement with the Australian show jumper focused on riding in his first Olympics.

Lever is one of a growing number of older athletes competing in the Olympics rather than watching from the stands with Japanese horseman Hiroshi Hoketsu leading the pack at Beijing, returning to the Games after a 44-year break aged 67.

U.S. swimmer Dara Torres, who is 41 and has a two-year-old daughter, created a media stir by making it to her fifth Olympics as the oldest American to swim at the Games.
Forty-one years old with a two-year-old kid. And we don't have any dedicated young swimmers that can retire this aging woman? She is the best we can offer?

Past Olympic champions like Mark Spitz must be hanging their heads in shame.

Won't be long now before the "arraigned" champion of any event will be the one selling the most T-shirts.

Keep Smiling... and Laughing

The "Race Card" flap:
WASHINGTON (AP) - John McCain accused Barack Obama of playing politics with race on Thursday, raising the explosive issue after the first black candidate with a serious chance of winning the White House claimed Republicans will try to scare voters by saying he "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."
At some point, we need to realize that taking either of these two empty suits seriously is a waste of time. Race has been Issue Number One in the campaigns since day one with Obama as perhaps the first black president. It was race and sex for awhile, when Hillary was also being considered as maybe the first woman president ever.

On the democratic side, the adoring and swooning rock fans have won out over the take-charge dykes and feminists, so its Obama in the drivers seat, and now it's just about race. On the Republican side, they wrote off any potentially good candidate early on, so it's Stonecold McCain. Just as in the case of Bob Dole, it must be his turn at the brass ring.

If your are considering either one of these political hacks for president, keep in mind that while we are tanking economically, being robbed at the gas pump, watching as our jobs and industries vanish overseas, witnessing the greatest transfer of wealth in human history - from us to everybody else - these two clowns are arguing about who's playing a race card.

Both of these jokers, the "man who would be King" Obama, and "I can live for four more years" McCain are both United States Senators that have had ample opportunity to make a difference over the years they have spent in Washington, and neither have done anything for America. Obama has simply done nothing, and everything McCain has done was for Israel's exclusive benefit.

Prime Saturday Night Live material is how these two beltline insiders should be viewed and remembered, but not as presidents.

There's a bit of time left before November, and - If the Christians are correct about miracles - we just may have one... but don't bet the mortgage on it.

Best to hunker down and prepare for the coming storm, it's going to be a bad one. If we aren't completely blown away, we will discover that all the foundations we have built around our lives have been eroded away... by those self-serving, treacherous, greedy, bought-out/sold-out cretins in Washington.

My decision for the upcoming elections? Party affiliation does not matter. If the candidate has "incumbent" after their name... no vote for them.

Hopefully, all those Sunday-go-to-church Americans that generally swing an election one way or the other will come to realize that a vote for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil, or in this case... voting for an Uncle Tom or a Grandpa Jones is really a vote for Uncle Tom or Grandpa Jones, not a vote for president.

What we really need on our ballots is the option to vote for "none of the above". If "none of the above" gets more votes than any candidate, we do it all over - with new candidates - until somebody gets a majority. It would cost a lot less than another presidential war.

And congress, after having done nothing about any of our problems, is going home for a well-earned five-week vacation. Oh yes, I forget, they did act to bail out the big boys - their benefactors - the ones who have played fast and easy with our homes and livelihoods, the ones who will walk away with billions, laughing all the way... to their foreign bank.
