Posts Tagged ‘democrat’

Yeah – I know – a day late. Sorry – for those who know me personally – and whom I confided in – you know the shit I’ve been going through this past week – for those who don’t know me – well – you’ll just remain in the dark I guess!

The following is the LATEst edition – seeing as how this was posted a day late – Blog Carnival won’t allow me to post again this week – so – the next edition of the Carnival will be on Sunday, February 28th.  I hope everyone had a very happy Valentine’s yesterday.

Enjoy. Once again – this week  – Wenchypoo wins the submitter of the week contest.  Well – she didn’t really win anything – but – she definitely has the most submissions.  Check ‘em all out – and the rest of the contributors as well.


Scott Spiegel presents Incinerating a Hot Potato posted at Scott Spiegel.

Adam Williams presents Loan Modification Program: My resignation from financial responsibility posted at, saying, “Our nation has been facing for more than a year now, one of the worst housing price decreases in history. Yet for some reason, many people seem to be confusing how this happened.”

I have multiple food allergies to perfectly healthy food (as do others)–are they gonna accommodate ME?”

Maria Myrback presents Captain America Against Free Speech? posted at Fledgeling Skeptic, saying, “Has Marvel turned their paragon of virtue, Captain America, against one of our most precious freedoms?”

Larry presents Taxes posted at Last Refuge of a Scoundrel. A post regarding the efforts by some in Congress to cater to special interests in the music industry.


Joe Manausa, MBA presents Busy City Commission Meeting Yields Mixed Results posted at Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, saying, “I have a major problem with the potential unethical and illegal actions of the proceedings back in 2005 and the actions from last night. Why is the Commission so reluctant to bring in a disinterested party to review the findings of what has occurred? They were quick to lament their individual positions as defendants in an ethics complaint, yet they have done nothing to repudiate the basis of the complaint. The arrogance displayed in allowing the City Attorney to continue to “be the final word” on the legality of the raise in which he is a beneficiary with a fiduciary conflict of interest is beyond my comprehension.”

Ann Margrain presents Aroclor 1248: Taking a Shower Can Damage Your Health posted at Heroin and Cornflakes, saying, ““Taking long hot showers is a health risk.” According to research presented in Anaheim, California, at a meeting of the American Chemical Society; showers – and to a lesser extent baths – lead to a greater exposure to toxic chemicals contained in water supplies than does drinking the water.”

Okay – here’s the next great installment of The BoBo Carnival of Politics. There are some great submissions here – please be sure to check them out. One in particular I want to point out comes from SpkTruth2Pwr – please go visit and read that one. It was in response to my earlier post this week on P-BO and being a Muslim.

I will give everyone a break this week and forgo my usual comments. Quite frankly, it’s because I have an extremely busy day today – but – I also know you guys would sometimes like to read these and come to your own conclusions without my opinions clouding the issues. So – without further adieu -


John Prothro presents Fox News is Obama’s Only Friend posted at Obama Takes Over the Hundred Acre Wood, saying, “We all have bad ideas. But we hopefully have friends who tell us they are bad. This Administration needs such a friend. His first task would be to tell Joe Biden it is a bad idea to “spend money to keep from going bankrupt.””

Jared Rhoads presents Let insurers actually compete posted at The Lucidicus Project, saying, “We don’t need a government-run public option; we need to let health insurance companies actually compete on an open market.”

Scott Spiegel presents Hasan Lawyer Considers Twinkie Defense, “American Panic Defense” posted at Scott Spiegel.


Joe Manausa, MBA presents Home Buyer Tax Credit Expanded By Congress posted at Tallahassee Real Estate Blog, saying, “Congress has extended and expanded the homebuyer tax credit. The modifications will become effective when President Obama signs the bill, which could occur as early as November 6, 2009.”


Madeleine Begun Kane presents Celebrating Sarah posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Stewing Over Stupak posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Larry King and Carrie Prejean ? Not Headed To The Altar posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

SpkTruth2Pwr presents Muslim – The “Affliction” Americans Fear posted at The Apathy Remedy, saying, “Is America in a War on Terrorism or a War on Muslims? Depending on who you ask, you might get differing responses, which is unfortunate for a country that prides itself on being a “melting pot”.”


Archvillain presents Orwell Was An Optimist posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “Yet more prosecutorial malfeasance in our so-called “Justice” system. Why aren’t more people getting angry?”

Archvillain presents Squat on thy haunches and bray out the tale ? posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “What’s the difference between us and our enemies again?”


Paul presents Has Washington D.C. Learned Nothing From Washington State’s Failed Healthcare Reform? posted at Paul’s Political Punditcy, saying, “Blaring example of how government controlled health care will fail whether at a state level or national level.”


Tamir Birk presents Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics Protest: “RIOT 2010!” – Um, Can You Take It Easy With That? posted at Informed Vote | Keeping Canadian Voters Informed.

Ann Margrain presents Children in Need, Stay in Need posted at Heroin and Cornflakes, saying, ““Hunger is not inevitable. Malnutrition is not a consequence of food scarcity, but a result of the way economies are organized and of political choices to address—or ignore—the causes of hunger. In the 21st century, we have the means to defeat hunger: we grow enough food, we know enough about redistributive economics, we have the political tools to ensure inclusive decision-making and we can afford to provide the basic needs that protect every person’s entitlement to an adequate, nutritious diet”.”

Ann Margrain presents Prohibition here we come! posted at Heroin and Cornflakes, saying, “Recently much attention has been focused on the on-going drama of U.S. health reform. In President Obama`s weekly address, he talks about how the ‘chatter and ruckus around health insurance reform on television obscures the reality of what’s happening in America.’”

U.S. Common Sense presents Nigel Coleman: idiot posted at U.S. Common Sense, saying, “Nigel Coleman is planning to burn the effigies of Pelosi and Perriello next weekend. This article explains why I think he’s an idiot.”


Tamir Birk presents The Golan Heights, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Barack Obama: Looking Forward or Looking Back? posted at Informed Vote | Keeping Canadian Voters Informed.

Ann Margrain presents Corruption in Health? Ozone, amputations and swine flu prevention posted at Heroin and Cornflakes, saying, “In America, through pressure of conformity, there is freedom of choice, but nothing to choose from.” (Peter Ustinov, English actor and writer) Over recent months, many media outlets have raised issues and concerns that are increasingly critical of the “swine flu” jab (H1N1)”

Hey all – before we get started with this week’s edition – I just wanted to inform everyone that I will be taking off next weekend from this carnival.  I’ll be out of town – taking the kids to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween.  However, I will be setting up the carnival for November 1 at this time.  You will have two weeks to get submissions in.

Now – on to the fun!


Ashok presents A Quick Guide to Right-Wing Extremism on the Web posted at Rethink..

Hmm..guess I have issues given some of the names on your list.  I think some of these people you have listed here aren’t right-wing extremists.  I think you probably have issue with them because they are the only one’s speaking the truth about this administration.

danny1961 presents War solves everything posted at Samson BLinded.

Great piece.  One example you forgot to mention was Japan – particularly Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Since then, Japan has been peaceful and prosperous.

Scott Spiegel presents Health Care Bill Gains Bipartisan Support from Career Gals of Maine Party posted at Scott Spiegel.

I heard a great line on SNL last night – saying having one Republican is bipartisanship is like saying you’re bilingual if you say “Hola” to your maid.


SVB presents The Pros and Cons of Going Into Foreclosure posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “The issues of going into foreclosure.”

While going in to foreclosure could be very damaging to one’s credit – I think you’ve posted some great arguments as to why someone should give serious consideration to it.


Madeleine Begun Kane presents Ode To Party-First Republicans posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

I don’t like party-first Republicans either (or Democrats for that matter – they should ALL be America first regardless of party).  However, I’m not sure I see your point on this one.  It wasn’t only Republicans that had things to say about the Nobel win or the loss of the Olympic bid.  There was a 50% split in Chicago alone with the residents there that didn’t want the Olympics – and I’m sure they weren’t split by party.

Glowing Face Man presents Why the United States should implement Basic Income posted at Glowing Face Man, saying, “In this argue, I argue why current economic models over-emphasize human labor, making them more and more obsolete as technology replaces humans in the workplace; and I argue why the solution is a universal Basic Income.”

Wow – talk about a socialist utopian fantasy!  I don’t even know how to respond to this in a brief, succinct manner. My readers will just have to come by there themselves to see this one.


Tim King presents You Wanna Win a Nobel Peace Prize, Too? posted at J. Timothy King’s Freedom Blog, saying, “To promote my new libertarian political blog, I’m mirroring the current Nobel Peace Prize selection process with a just-as-meaningful contest, complete with its own self-serving giveaway prize!”

Pretty cool.  I’ve added my submission!  For all my blogger readers – go check this out and join this contest.  Ultimately, you could win yourself a free autographed copy of his Mr. King’s book. (No, not Stephen King!)

Len Penzo presents Yes, Al Gore, There Is Such A Thing as Global Warming posted at Len Penzo . Com.

As I commented on your blog – this is brilliant!


Aetius Romulous presents Give Iran “The Bomb” posted at ScreamBucket.

Hmm..not entirely sure I agree with your reasoning there for giving Iran “the bomb.”  I don’t think it will restore any sort of parity there.  Iran is full of some serious religious nutjobs that are bent on the destruction of Israel and America.  They truly believe the 12th Imam will appear if they start the next holocaust.  This won’t restore parity – it will ensure the destruction of many western countries.


Lisa Taylor presents 100 Sites Every Civil Liberties Advocate Should Have Bookmarked posted at Online Paralegal Degree, saying, “Don’t get your news on an important issue like civil liberties from just one source. Below are the best 100 civil liberty sites ranging from left to right and everywhere in between.”

A good list for my liberal friends out there.  I don’t think they would agree with you that any of the GOP or conservative sites should be on there though. :)

smrtas1 presents Accounting Tricks in the Baucus Health Care Bill posted at Conservative Patriot HQ.

These are all great points.  However, the biggest trick is that the CBO even scored this bill given the fact there hasn’t been any legislative language written.

smrtas1 presents Do You Have a Cadillac Insurance Plan? posted at Conservative Patriot HQ.

I heard about this as well.  Just another tax on the middle-class that P-BO said would never happen.  So, I guess now if you can afford to have the best insurance possible – you are  penalized.  Just another tax on success by these idiot libbers.  Why should they even care?  This doesn’t apply to them.  They all have cadillac plans at taxpayer expense.

Welcome once again to another fine edition of The BoBo Carnival of Politics.  It’s another good day – not only for this edition  – but cuz the Steelers won yet another game!  Go Steelers!


Scott Spiegel presents Why Are There No Lilting Sambas About the Junkie from Fuller Park? posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “I submitted this on Wednesday but didn’t get a ‘receipt confirmed’ e-mail and then forgot about it. Oops!”

Ha ha.  Number 16 is reason enough!

Scott Spiegel presents Please, Sir, I Want Some More Troops posted at Scott Spiegel.
Actually, McChrystal did follow the chain of command.  It is not his fault that the CINC hadn’t responded to his request at the time he was interviewed – after all – his request had been sitting on P-BO’s desk for two months.  P-BO needs to fulfill this request immediately – unless he wants to turn Afghanistan in to Viet Nam.

lsm presents Obama Smiles all the way to China?s Bank. posted at awaken the elephants blog.

Scary stuff – I’ve been reading the same headlines and wondering when China will call in our markers.  It is only a matter of “when” we become Cino-America.

TSW presents Back To Work: How To Rejoin The Workforce After Retirement posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “One of the realities we face now, with savings and investments crippled by the economy and stock market value deflation, is a generation of seniors who need to return to work.”

Great advise.  I just read an article from the WSJ this past week regarding the huge losses in government pension funds (teachers, policemen, civil servants, etc.).  Many of these individuals who worked for the government for the last 20 years are now finding they have no pension fund (as are those who retired already and are now getting notice their pensions are being cancelled due to lack of funds).  This is a good post for anyone who finds them in this position.


vjack presents Are Democrats as Incapable of Governing as it Appears? posted at Atheist Revolution.

Good God, VJack – while you are absolutely correct that Democrats are incapable of governing – your assertion that they have the better ideology is absolutely ludicrous….unless you believe the ideology of enslaving Americans is good.  You do make some valid points along the way here -but – blaming Republicans for all the woes of America and the world is ludicrous.  Liberal policies and RINO’s who go along with those idiotic socialist policies are to blame.

SVB presents Seeking A Mortgage Loan Modification To Save My Home posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “This article focuses on one person’s financial hardships and how she’s turned to the government (the HUD’s HOPE for Homeowner’s program, in particular), to help her with her challenges.”

Great post.  I’d also like to add one more piece of advise – for those who are just experiencing a very temporary setback and just a little time to get back on their feet – and if a loan modification is not in the books – most mortgage companies will allow you to do deferred principle payments for a short period of time (3 to 6 months) depending on the circumstances.  Essentially, for a short period of time you pay the interest only and defer the principle portion of the payment to the back end of the loan.  Many years ago I was able to avoid foreclosure by setting up an arrangement like this for six months.


Madeleine Begun Kane presents Ode To Pro-Rape Republicans posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Okay – I wouldn’t go as far as saying those who voted against this bill are “pro-rape.”  However, I do believe they were wrong for not voting for this amendment.  Criminal activity should never be able to be arbitrated.  You’re right – they’re wrong – and I’m glad this ultimately passed.

Elisha Webster Emerson presents Healthcare: My Private Politic posted at My Inconvenient Body, saying, “My personal experiences with health care and why what we have to fear is already now.”

Elisha – sorry to hear of your woes.  However, you’re confusing health insurance with affordable access to health care.  One of the reasons the cost of health care is so high is because of government interference, over-the-top and excessive law suits, and health insurance.  The bill on “capital hill” as you put it, is to provide insurance.  It does absolutely nothing to bring down the costs of health care.  In fact, it will actually cause access to health care to become more expensive.  Don’t buy the hype.  Ask for real reform – ask the government to NOT support increasing the rolls of insurance companies.  Ask your representative to push for real reform through tort reform, free-market competition, interstate commerce, and tax breaks for technology.  This is a horrible bill for America. To use your analogy to K-Mart – if physicians were allowed to compete with one another – you could have shopped around until you found a physician willing to charge a reasonable and affordable price for an ear lavage.  If you don’t like what K-Mart is selling and if you don’t like the prices, you could go to another retailer.  The current government regulations do not allow this in health care.  Instead, the current government regulations give the power to the insurance companies to dictate the prices and put the physicians under exclusive agreements.


Archvillain presents Speaking of Domestic Enemies posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “Police continue to treat the public as their enemies. Aren’t police supposed to be Public Servants?”

Good God almighty – I don’t even know how to respond to this.  My readers need to read this for themselves.  The fact the police got away with this is an absolute tragedy.


mrs laughton presents Top 10 Presidential Pets: The Nation’s First Dogs and Cats posted at Online Veterinary Technician Schools.

Okay – only somewhat related to politics.  I’ll leave this here for my interested pet lovers.


Baywords presents Collateral Damage in the War on Influenza posted at Swine Flu Shot Safety Program.

Great post.  The Nurembourg Trials and Roberts Commission specifically outline guidelines for utilizing human test subjects.  By forcing Americans to get vaccinated is essentially using human test subjects which is in violation of these guidelines.


Everett presents Inequality as Usual posted at Honest Inquiry.

Great post Everett.  I think the final point is the most accurate and probably a more reasonable cause – jobs requiring greater skills with higher education leaving those behind who don’t get an education to be in the service sector.  There are those out there who choose NOT to go to school.  Why should people like myself who pay for their own education and move up the food chain be responsible for paying for the likes of those with less ambition?  I don’t get it.

Kathy Wilson presents 10 U.S. Presidents Who Got Their Start in Teaching posted at Online Schools.

Very interesting.  I had no idea.  The one about Clinton in particular surprised me.

smrtas1 presents All Government Healthcare Plans Will Cover Illegals posted at Conservative Patriot HQ.

“You Lie” :) Thanks for those links.  I will promise to use them here as well (obviously crediting you).  Those idiot libbers already know illegals will be covered – they’re trying to lie to the rest of the public that haven’t educated themselves yet.  Keep up the great work over there.

Hey all – we have a lot of submissions to get through this week.  Sorry, but this is gonna be another one of those quick posts.  It has been a very busy week and weekend.  I wasn’t able to get through any of them personally.  You’ll also notice we have some new contributors as well.  Check them all out, if you can, and make sure you drop by and leave a comment on their blogs.

Dana presents On Obama’s “indoctrination” speech posted at Principled Discovery.


SVB presents Federal Minimum Wage Through History, Plus Sundry Thoughts posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Covering the federal minimum wage…”

Smarter Wallet presents Avoid Bankruptcy! Information To Help You Stay Afloat posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “Too many people are going bankrupt these days — a sign of the times.”

lsm presents A Country of Freedom? posted at awaken the elephants blog.

SVB presents How To Buy A Foreclosure: Find Foreclosed Homes Online posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “It’s a time of foreclosures around the nation. While it is a time of pain for many people, others are rejoicing because they are now able to afford to buy property at prices they can afford.”

Scott Spiegel presents Pick a Reform, Any Reform posted at Scott Spiegel.

Mar Matthias Darin presents Why I oppose ObamaCare posted at The Matthias Chronicles, saying, “A raw and honest look at why I don’t support ObamaCare.”


DWSUWF presents Fwd: Something worth forwarding – at the request of David Axelrod posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, “I am glad the President is finally going to be speaking out on health care reform. We are well overdue to hear from the President on this issue. It has been quite a while since his major health care reform speeches on June 15, July 17, his major health care reform press conference on July 22, his heath care reform town hall meetings in Wisconsin (June 11), at the White House (June 24), North Carolina and Virginia (July 29) , New Hampshire (Aug 11), Montana (August 14), Colorado (August 15) and maybe a few other major speeches and media events that I might have missed. This time the President will be telling us what he wants to see in health care reform now, as opposed to what he wanted to see during the campaign, or David Axelrod’s chain-mail missive of August 13 outlining in detail what the administration expected to see from health care reform then. Speaking of which – I am doing my part. I have been diligently forwarding David’s chain-mail to every e-mail address I can find as he requested me to do.”


Madeleine Begun Kane presents Republicans Bring “Classiness” To the Classroom posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.


Archvillain presents Pseudo-poppycock posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “First, they came for the weed, but I did not use weed, and I said nothing. Then they came for the Sudafed ….”

Wenchypoo presents Freedom is Not a Political System (L-O-N-G) posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.


Leah L Burton presents Obama?s Speech? TOO Inspirational! Danger? Real Education versus ?Edumucation?! posted at God’s Own Party?.

steven germain presents Obama’s speech to students… posted at Rough Fractals, saying, “Republicans foam at mouth and cry wolf one too many times…”

BWL presents Obama’s healthcare plan – your thoughts? posted at Christian Personal Finance, saying, “Apparently Canadian health care is not all it’s cracked up to be, should we be going down this direction with socialized health care?”

Rick Foreman presents Evidence of Conservatives Mental Imbalance posted at Waiting for the Singularity.

Ella Moss presents THE ONLY RIGHT WAR « Zodiac Times posted at Zodiac Times, saying, “Afghanistan: should we stay / should we go”


Bob Brooks presents Power to the Political Machine posted at Bob Brooks – Prudent Money Blog.

Leah L Burton presents Ignorance Embarrasses America Once Again! posted at God’s Own Party?.

U.S. Common Sense presents Reviewing Obama’s Health Care Speech | U.S. Common Sense posted at U.S. Common Sense, saying, “A closer look at the proposal President Obama set forth in his speech to Congress on Wednesday.”

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday reflecting on and celebrating the independence of this country! Well – not its time to get back to business! You’ll notice we have some new contributors, regular contributors, and contributors from the past posting up again. Thanks to you all for making this the Carnival that it is!


David Lamb presents When Treasuries Crowd Out Lending posted at Killer Buffalo.

David – welcome back!  Haven’t seen you around in a while.  I take it you’re getting prepared for your college years now! LOL…enjoy them!  In this article, I found it interesting that you attributed the recession to “skyrocketing interest rates.”  Actually, I’m still waiting for them to increase.  In 1990 when I bought my first home, it was at an 11% interest rate – and that was normal back then.  My car loan was at 14% – again, normal in 1990.  I would hardly say our interest rates have “skyrocketed.”  With the prime lending rate still floating around 4% – I would say the cause of this recession has been the lack of the fed to stabilize the markets by actually, and truly, increasing interest rates.  If you want people to invest – you need to raise the interest rates.  The best I can get on my CD’s right now is 3.5% if I go out 3 years.  My Money Market is only earning 1% interest.  I remember in 1990 when I could get 10 – 12% on my short-term CD’s.  The best way for this economy to stabilize and to bring investors back in to the market is to raise interest rates.  So – if you want to attribute this recession to interest rates – I would actually attribute it to the falsely deflated interest rates.

Jared Rhoads presents The Lucidicus Project posted at The Lucidicus Project, saying, “If the proposed public option for health insurance becomes law, then we may as well have Fannie Mae run it.”

“Fannie-Mae Healthcare” – sounds about right for this proposed monstronsity!  Let’s hope we garner enough support in the house to kill it right away.  The real solution is not “affordable health INSURANCE” – it’s affordable HEALTH CARE – Lower the cost of access to health care – i.e, through tort reform, and you open health care back up to free-market capitalism which is good for all.  Just providing insurance to everyone does nothing to lower the actual costs of healthcare. If anything – having this public option health insurance will just drive the costs up further.  Healthcare providers will increase their rates in order to cover the losses from that idiotic public plan.

Scott Spiegel presents Global Warming Killed Michael Jackson posted at Scott Spiegel.

Bwahaha!  Great title!  However, this is probably one of the best detailed posts regarding the “global warming” issue.  I’m with you – let’s hope there actually is an American Senator out there that is willing to ask the same questions as the Australian Senator and actually look at the facts rather than the myths before they vote on that economy killer of a bill.

Steve Parry presents This Explains A Lot posted at The Axis of Stevil, saying, “Sarcastic, but true.”

Michelle Obama hates kids!!!!!!  LOL – you’re right – this does actually explain a lot.

Silicon Valley Blogger presents Commodity Market Index: An Inflation Indicator posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Let’s talk inflation for a moment. I discuss various ways to predict inflation. I’m surprised nobody’s commented on this post yet (all other posts get comments) — are people just intimidated by this subject?”

Me – I say inflation is another necessary evil in a free-market capitalist system.  Inflation helps to stabilize the economy.  When you don’t allow inflation to occur and if you falsely keep interest rates down to try to curb inflation – you get what we have now – a serious recession leading towards a depression.  We could have avoided this had the Fed just allowed inflation to occur and run it’s natural course.  We wouldn’t be seeing the possibility of hyperinflation now.  In addition, when all these idiotic policies start hitting our economy – the price of everything will increase.  You are right though – If you follow your local prices at your local stores – you can see inflation creeping.  We should have seen this coming years ago.

The Smarter Wallet presents The Credit Crisis Explained Video posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “I’m going for a video this time, to display how the credit crisis evolved. Thanks!”

Excellent video.  Who’s Jonathon Jarvis?  I’ve seen similar illustrations -but – this was by far one of the more simplistic and easiest to understand.  Highly recommended.


DWSUWF presents Under My Thumb. posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, “The damage is already done. Senator Al Franken will not make a meaningful difference. This single party Democratic government has already committed to trillions of new spending while quadrupling the deficit. They’ve dug a financial hole that can only be filled by imposing new economy-throttling taxes and unleashing the inflationary and currency devaluing monetary printing presses. These are the simple facts. Before Senator Al Franken, or after Senator Al Franken, the only thing that can restrain the Democrats now are the Democrats.”

Yup – but – considering all the crap they’ve been able to force through without Franken – I don’t think it really matters that they actually seated him.  We’ll see how many Senators up for re-election in 2010 would rather side with the people rather than the party of Franken and Obama.


SpkTruth2Pwr presents Iraq: Roll ‘Em Up! Move ‘Em Out! posted at The Apathy Remedy, saying, “Why is it that there has been sparse coverage of the U.S. troops in Iraq lately? Maybe it is because things are actually on the right track with U.S. Foreign Policy in the Middle East.”

You do realize that by the MSM acknowledging the success – they would have to actually give credit to Bush, Cheney, and the entire Bush administration!  Since they can’t say this is a Democrat or Obama success – there’s no reason for them to report on it.  This withdrawal has nothing to do with Obama’s foreign policy as you have stated.  This withdrawal was agreed upon by Bush and Malaki last year.  So – why is there no reporting?  Because this is a conservative, republican, and Bush success. We know how Liberals and the liberal media hate to give credit to conservatives for anything.  Hell, Harry Reid and Obama both said last year that this war was lost.  Maybe that’s why the MSM doesn’t want to report on this success – it makes their Obamessiah look bad.

Rick Foreman presents Ice Cream and the Freedom of Dessert posted at Waiting for the Singularity.

OH…this has nothing to do with ice cream does it? ;) But, I am in agreement with you on this one, being the Libertarian Conservative that I am.  Our forefathers did not intend for my favorite, Moosetracks, to be forced upon those who prefer vanilla. I believe you have the right to believe that your favorite is better than my favorite and we both have the right to disagree with each other without the government forcing us to choose one, such as what the Obama administration is doing with all of their policies.


BH presents 7 Out of Top 10 Failed States are Muslim States posted at Bangladeshi Hindu.

Interesting!  What I also find interesting is that two countries currently at war (Iraq and Afghanistan) are actually ranked 6 and 7, respectively.  Those other countries 1 – 5 must be in REALLY bad shape then!

Kenny Silveira presents Is this what we have become? posted at Black Holes And Revelations, saying, “An article about the recent violence in Iran after the 2009 elections.”
Nice tribute to Neda and an eye-opening post to those that are sleeping.  It’s too bad our own President sides more with the Mullah’s than with the people.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents De-Moralized? posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

Hmmm…that’s just as crazy as libtards blaming Glenn Beck and O’Reilly for Tiller The Baby-Killer’s death. Neither of them compute.

Bob Brooks presents Dazed and Confused – The Weapon of the Politicians posted at Bob Brooks – Prudent Money Blog.

Just keep reporting on this kind of stuff.  With enough of us bloggers out here pointing out the truth – eventually someone is going to come across it.  I have people that I work with that didn’t even know this thing passed last week.  I spoke to as many colleagues as possible leading up to the vote – but – I guess I wasn’t talking to the right people.  Keep up the great work, Bob.


nickel presents $15,000 Homebuyer’s Tax Credit is Back on the Table posted at

Personally, I think that’s a load of crap.  The tax credit – not your article! :)   We don’t need any more freakin’ tax credits.  What we need is more permanent tax cuts.  The tax credit is not going to incentive anyone to buy a home in this market unless they can also come up with the 20% downpayment.  Many banks are actually going back to using solid business decisions and lending practices – that includes money down and income and employment verification.  The smart home-buyers are staying in the homes the are already in rather than risk the values of their homes going down further.  The market still hasn’t bottomed out.  Using my money to incentivize people to buy homes they may not really want or can’t afford is just another bad idea.  Kinda sounds like what caused the financial meltdown in the first place.


Allen Scott presents With Malice Toward None posted at Journey Across the Sky, saying, “Something to think about as we celebrate our Freedom.”

Hey Allen – sorry this didn’t appear before July 4th.  I guess that’s just one of the hazards of posting this regularly on Sundays – sometimes the posts come a little later.  In any case – whether this comes before or after 4th of July – your discussion is still relevant for every day.  Long – but well worth the read.

Wenchypoo presents About That Climate Change Bill Voted On Last Friday… posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

Hey Wenchypoo – perhaps you might want to resubmit?  For whatever reason – this doesn’t link to anything – blogger says this link doesn’t exist.

Gal Josefsberg presents An Open Letter To Our Elected Officials posted at Gal Josefsberg, saying, “I want someone to inspire me, someone who will give us a cause to rally behind. With so many issues facing us, we need more than a manager, we need a leader.”

Good letter.  Hey, did you hear that Steve “Air” McNair was shot and killed?  Seriously, this country needs to focus on what is right rather than what the media wants us to look at.  We have far too many issues that effect all of individually that are before Congress that needs to be looked at.  I too am so tired of all the idiots in this country tied to the “boob tube” that they can’t even think critically any longer – nor do they care about the real issues.  Great post.
