Posts Tagged ‘Palin’

I was going to wait until Friday to post this – but – this is just too funny to wait.

This obviously would never happen – but – it would be great to see it! LOL!

h/t to Roger at Peripheries for sending this to me. You do have to admit – this is actually funny.

Hey – if we can’t laugh at this stuff then they’ve already got us! For you real hard-liners – lighten up – it IS funny even though the Lefties continue to compare any of us on the right to Hitler. Funny how they don’t realize that the Fascist Obama is closer to Hitler than anybody on the right.

Wow! 21 Submissions this week! I think that’s a new record! All right guys – let’s see if we can beat that next week – try for at least 22! With all these great submitters – and with all you great readers – this Carnival is become very popular! Keep up the great work people!

With that being said – these really are some great submissions – again – this week! Please – take a look through these and go visit these blogs and their posts. My comments are just that – my comments – and they may not do them justice. Go see for yourself and make up your own minds! Make sure you show them support and leave them a comment!


The Hawg presents Why the Republican party is a mess and how to fix it posted at The Natural State Hawg – ramblings from an Arkie, saying, “It’s time to rebuild a party. Hopefully, my fellow Republicans are up to the task.”

Dude!  You’re making me feel so old!  You were only 11 in 1980?  I’m glad that Reagan impressed you enough at such a young age that you could find a party of values to believe in.  I have to agree with everything you’ve said over there – including some of your recommendations for fixing the problem.  I echoed some of those fixes here myself.  Great post!

Quisani presents The Future of Tomorrow posted at The Quisani League.

I think your end statement says it all:

This “New Era of America” is one that is care free. But only if you are poor.
I too agree that our economy under Obama is going to get much worse before it can get better.  His policies are all wrong.  Only time will tell now!

Pauly T. Kal presents Obama’s Buddy Shootin’ off missiles again! posted at Political Rants from the Right, saying, Muckymud Imanutjob shot off some new missiles last week with a range of 1900km compared to the Shahab3 that only had a 1200km range.  It really looks like these guys want to sit across from Obama unconditionally!


Arun presents Election Season! posted at Arun is Bringing You…Your Daily Remedy, saying, “My liberally slanted view of the presidential election and California’s proposition 8!”

Yasu, Arun!  Wow!  You have quite the list of things up in this post to consider!  Also – if you don’t mind – since you consider yourself well informed as it relates to American politics – our constitution is not bound by separation of church and state.  That is a misnomer and no where in the constitution does it make any such statement.  The closest thing you have is the 1st Amendment under Freedom of Religion where it says that:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
This means that the FEDERAL government cannot endorse any religion.  However, you have to remember that our constitution was written that gave all the power to the states – therefore – the Civil War.  The phrase “separation of church and state” has been taken out of context ever since Thomas Jefferson wrote it in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802.  He was only responding at a national level – not at what a state itself has the rights to do.  It was his “belief” there should be a wall of separation – but he did not declare there is one.

Louise Manning presents 10 quotes on expectation posted at The Human Imprint.

Hello Louise – and welcome.  Some very interesting quotes there regarding Obama and the expectations everyone has given over to him under the guise of hope and change.  I fear he set those expectations way too high for his supporters – and as one of your quotes suggest – there will be some serious let down!

cryton presents Oh! That’s Why John Edwards Wasn’t Chosen as the Running Mate posted at Welcome Back Rosenthal, saying, “The ugly truth comes out, but nobody was volunteering.”

Bwahahaha!  Good one!  Say, has he actually admitted yet that the child is his?


Michael. presents The Wiretapping Debate: George W. Bush and Barack Obama posted at International Law News.

Hey Michael – good post on this issue.  To answer your question – Yes – I believe it is.  I was in the Air Force serving under the Electronic Security Command that reports to the NSA.  I know what our capabilities are – and I also know that there are ways that it can be abused.  However, you forgot to mention the second part to this new law – once the intercept has been made – and it is determined there is a potential national security risk – they must obtain the FISA warrant for continued surveillance.  The transmissions are run through computer algorithms that contain a limited set of parameters.  Once a select transmission fits that parameter – only then would it go live for someone to actually monitor.  Not all phone conversations around this country are being actively monitored.  Also – everyone seems to forget that Clinton did the same thing.  No one seemed to care when he did it.  And, I have no doubt now that Obama has been involved in the security briefings – he too will continue with this policy.


Christine Decourlande presents Gingrich – End Adolescence posted at Frog In North Georgia.

Welcome back Christine – Wow!  I completely missed that one from Newt!  I’m with you on this.  Kids should be kids and there should be no rush to get them in to the workforce.  I didn’t have my first job until I was 18 – and that was only temporary while I waited to go to college.  I told all of my kids as they were growing up we would never tell them they had to work.  We also didn’t stop them from getting a job if they wanted one either.  But – there was always a limit – if their grades suffered – they had to quit work.  We also did not allow them to take any of those “work force business classes” where they get out half a day so they can go to work.  That’s a rubbish class.  The kids here go to work in grocery stores as baggers, at fast food joints flipping burgers, or at the malls as cashiers, etc.  They aren’t really learning anything about business – they were only learning how to be slaves to their supervisors.  Also as an aside to something else you have posted – in my state – you can start working as young as 14.  There are exceptions – such as if you’re a family farmer – kids can start in the workforce as young as 12 and get a driver’s license at 14 to help maintain the family farm.

Ron McKie presents Congress is full of pussies posted at Phuck Politics.

I know I can always expect a good one from you, Ron. Gang banged by Princess Di?  Bwahahaha!  You are right on target there though.  Rather than ask the CEO to quit – they should just take all the money back and let them fail!

Sam presents NEW !! The Bank Crisis, the Subprime Mortgage Crisis and How they Affect You posted at Surfer Sam and Friends, saying, “At the foundation of the bank crisis and the stock market crash of 2008 are money, greed and risk.

The New World of Mortgages

Traditionally, when you applied for a mortgage, your bank handled all stages of the transaction. The bank checked your credit, lent you money to buy a house, held the mortgage in its vault, collected your monthly payments and foreclosed on any bad loans. In the 1990s, things changed. A different specialist handled each stage of the mortgage. Mortgage brokers drummed up applicants for mortgages. Mortgage banks lent the money and held the mortgage note. They quickly resold these mortgage notes to investment banks. Mortgage servicing companies collected your monthly payment, and remitted the money to the owner of your mortgage.

Creative Finance with Mortgages

Meanwhile, investment banks put the mortgages into a trust, sorted the mortgages by risk and designed a new financial instrument, called a CMO, collateralized mortgage obligation. Basically CMOs were fancy debt instruments, IOUs with a fixed rate of return, based on bundles of home mortgages. The CMOs were supposed to work just like corporate bonds. Some CMOs, the toxic ones, were based on high risk mortgages, and some CMOs were based on high-quality, lower-interest mortgages. CMOs were rated for quality just like corporate bonds. Everyone in the financial world wanted to own them”

Well – I can’t add any more to this!  I just know that this is the second time this week that I’ve heard about these (Fearless History provided a link in one of my comments to some NPR audio).  Pretty scary stuff.  This is another great post about this economic mess! Surfer Sam just provided a brief synopsis of the whole thing – I suggest you go check out the whole thing.


Josh Gillespie presents What is an Executive Order? posted at Inside Government, saying, From a new blog that takes a non-partisan look at American politics.  With Obama announcing last week that he plans on reviewing all of GWB’s Executive Orders (which is unprecedented) to determine which one’s he’s going to overturn – this is a detailed look at just what an Executive Order is and what it means for Obama to repeal or overturn them.

Howard Miller presents The (apolitical) reason Proposition 8 won posted at Fulcrum Point Partners, saying, “could be under many categories”

Howard – if only it were so cut and dried as you put it.  I must commend you on putting a very thoughtful post together regarding the reason why it failed.  Unfortunately, some of your anti-Prop 8 radicals that are firebombing churches will disagree with you.  I do agree that it was about core values – but – there are those who believe it was based on hatred and bigotry.  I like the ideas you propose for resolving our differences.

Archvillain presents Tangled webs, etc. posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “Whatever happened to minding one’s own business?”

Archivillain – good post.  It goes along with Howard Miller’s submission as well – you might want to go check out his post linked here.  However, with regards to your citing of the 14th Amendment as it relates to State’s rights and the passing of Prop 8 in California – You might have forgotten about The Federal Defense of Marriage Act that was signed in to law by Clinton back in 1996 that protects and defines marriage as being between a man and a woman and states that neither the Federal Government nor any other states are required to recognize same-sex marriages allowed in other states.  In order for the state to overturn the rule as being unconstitutional – it will have to go to the Federal level and repeal the DOMA of 1996. But, on the surface of everything else you have stated – while I am Conservative – that means I’m for states rights and limited government – not that social religious conservative stuff that has creeped in to our society.  Government needs to stay out of our personal business – regardless of what that business is as long as it is not harmful or puts anyone in danger.

Recoil presents Palin’s Pathetic Pundits posted at Double Barreled Opinions.

Ah – my sentiments exactly.  You stated in your post some of what I said in a submission here last week that was anti-Palin.  Good post!

Aahz presents Why Do We Pay The President Of The United States? posted at Philaahzophy, saying, “From the “things that make you go hmmmm’ department.”

Aahz – welcome to the party brother!  And..Amen to that!  The only thing he has to spend that income on is other investments or big toys!’re right – they get 100% retirement and 100% benefits – and – it gets passed on to the surviving spouse as well – same goes for Senators.  Senators only need to serve one term and they get full 100% income and benefits.  The Clintons will be soaking us dry for years.  Regarding BO – even if he is a one termer – he will continue to get the same pay for the rest of his life..and considering he’s what – 46?  Hell – we could be paying him $400k (plus any increases) for the next 40 years! Why is it that we only elect millionaires in to this position – knowing they are taking a pay cut and don’t need the money?

Heather Johnson presents Top 50 Homeland Security Blogs posted at e-Justice Blog.

Heather – excellent list – I have it in my favorites now!

burgson maria presents In the name of the Lady posted at WORTH TO BE BLOGGED.

Hmm..I take it you’re not a Rupert Murdoch fan? :)

Patricia Turner presents The Top 100 Libertarian Blogs posted at Web Design Schools Guide.

Patricia – I made several attempts – I just can’t seem to get to your blog.  I’ve left this link here having faith that your post is as it is advertised in case some of my readers are able to get there.  Since I can’t see your list – if these two aren’t on your list – perhaps you should consider them – likewise – they have links to other Libertarian blogs:

Vulcan’s Hammer and Shaving Leviathanhighly recommended!

Zaira presents Libertarian By Click posted at Butterfly Diaries, saying, “Do you really know where you fall on the political spectrum?”

Awesome – we have a family submission!  So – Aahz is your dad! Cool!  I don’t even think my older kids could spell blog nevertheless get them to sit behind a computer! And – thanks for this submission – I’ve seen these diagrams posted up – but, could never find them.  I took the test and came out exactly where I thought I would – Libertarian, Conservative – leaning more Libertarian than Conservative.  Also – you might want to correct your link to the quiz – I had to backtrack it through the main website that it links to.

Woman Tribune presents Time for Change: Get Marijuana Law Reform on the Agenda! posted at Woman Tribune.

Hey! Holly!  Welcome back!  I won’t comment on this article – you know from our chats how I feel already.  I’ll just let my readers come over and decide for themselves! But, what I will say is – you make some compelling arguments – and – you might find yourself being very disappointed if you think Obama is going to uphold any promises he made on the campaign trail! As myself and everyone else on the right had been saying all along – he is not who he was trying to say he is!

Joseph presents The Obama Plan – What It Includes posted at Penny Pinching.

Hey Joseph – thanks for putting up the details regarding Obama’s tax plans.  I’m a fiscal conservative and libertarian when it comes to government – so – without going in to detail – you know that I already feel that this plan will ruin our economy and amounts to welfare for the poor.  I’ve never worked for a poor person! But, I do have readers that will probably agree with your post.  Go check out Louise Manning’s post up there on expectations – you might need some of those quotes!

Anna Callahan presents Fight Fire with Water: How Obama Won the Presidency posted at Indie Times, saying, Was it Bush’s low approval rating? Obama’s stance on Iraq? McCain’s VP pick? Obama’s funding? Nope, nope, nope, and nope. Find out what viral message Obama used to bring millions of people to his aid and to inoculate himself against all Republican attacks.

Thanks for the submission, Anna! Well – I’m sure it will come no surprise to you (if you have followed this blog at all) that I disagree – but – we’ll let our readers come over there and decide for themselves.  I consider myself to be extremely and well informed.  For you guys to NOT see that he is socialist just means to me that you buried your head in the sand.  After all, Bill Ayers just stated on air Friday morning that he and Obama are great FAMILY friends – not just some guy in the neighborhood and that he has been contributing to Obama’s campaign.  Not what Obama said!  Same thing now with Wright, Farrakhan, and Pfleger – they all came out last week stating the complete opposite of what Obama was saying – in fact – they all said they waited until AFTER the election because they didn’t want to hurt Obama’s chances.  Hmmm.

Holy cow! I don’t know what to say! Thanks to all of you who submitted to the carnival. Without you guys – this carnival would not be the success that it is. There were 20 submissions this week. All of them excellent – and – yes – I do actually go read them all before I allow them to be published.

That way – not only do I make sure I keep this carnival spam-free, but, I also get to learn more about those bloggers who are submitting – plus I feel I’ve learned a bit more after having read the submissions.  I usually will comment here on what I’ve read over there – but – given the total number of submissions that are here – as much as I would love to comment on ALL of them – I would be up forever and probably miss deadline.

In any case – be rest assured – I have reviewed all of these submissions.  There are some I would really love to provide commentary on here – but – that just wouldn’t be FAIR to the others that I don’t comment on.  Oh, Crap!  I think I sounded like “That One” for a moment – I probably shouldn’t be reading those liberal blogs as much as I do! LOL.  Please do go check these all out.  They are all excellent – some you will agree with – others I guarantee you won’t – and since this is a mish mosh of submissions – whether you are liberal, conservative, or libertarian – what I said above still stands true!

Alli presents The Abomination of Government Marriage posted at The Smoking Argus, saying, “With Election Day less than one week away, voters in 3 states, Florida, California, and Arizona will again be voting on whether same sex couples should be allowed to “marry”. The debate regarding whom can marry is yet another example of politicians creating and fostering a wedge between Americans.”

DWSUWF presents Barack buys an election? posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, “At some point, we have to step back and try to grasp the sheer enormity of what Axelrod and Obama have wrought. We can just look at it and admire it as a spectacle, as a force of nature, much like staring at Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon. The Axelrod/Obama campaign has spent as much selling the Barack Obama brand as McDonald’s spends selling hamburgers. Obama is spending $293,000/hour to win the Presidency.”

Alli presents The Fairness Doctrine: Internet Censorship Coming Soon to a Web Page Near You posted at The Smoking Argus, saying, “In past conversations with colleagues and friends, I have often commented that some day soon the internet our generation has come to know, the wealth of information available via the click of a mouse, will cease to exist. That in the place of this unfiltered and uncensored access to information, will come a government controlled, censored version of the world wide web under the auspices of the FCC or some other bloated failure of a bureaucracy.”

It uncovers some sparkling (and some potentially damaging) facts about the White House Women.”

GrrlScientist presents I’m a ‘Godless American’ and Proud of it! posted at Living the Scientific Life, saying, “At one time, I respected — note the past tense of the word — Elizabeth Dole, but after seeing this astonishing ad that her campaign aired in NC against her political opponent, Kay Hagen, I am disgusted. At the end of the ad, there is a picture of Hagen and a voice-over saying “there is no god” — the implication being that Hagen, a christian, actually said this.”

First – I can’t wait for this damned thing to be over already!  While I absolutely loathe the possibility of an Obama administration – I will actually be breathing a very big sigh of relief next Wednesday!  For political junkies like me – even an election cycle that lasts 2 freakin’ years is too long!

Before I get on to why I’m not voting for Obama – just a little housekeeping here – I’ve been notified by Blog Carnival that my site/carnival will be featured next week!  Notice – I haven’t provided a submission link – they’ve been down for the past couple days.  Hopefully, they’ll be up again REALLY soon.  As soon as they do – I will post a call for submissions here.  This will be a great opportunity for all you political bloggers to get some more traffic since this will be featured on their front page.

Now – on to MY reasons for NOT voting for Obama (in no particular order)

  1. I’m a racist, hate-mongering, warmongering, global warming, neo-con. And I think that any individual who looks down on our military as baby-killers who raid innocent homes in the darkness of night should not be the Commander-in-Chief over those fine service members.
  2. I believe that the unborn have rights and should not be treated as a mistake that can be just tossed out.
  3. I’m a greedy rich, white bastard that just hoards my earnings. You peons that make less than me just aren’t trying hard enough!
  4. I cling to my religion and my guns and I hate anybody who is different than me.
  5. I actually believe that if you hang around with domestic terrorists, known socialists, known marxist professors, convicted criminals, and racists – you are un-American and don’t deserve to be the President.
  6. I believe health insurance is a luxury and a personal responsibility.  Affordable health insurance is NOT the answer.  Access to affordable health care is the answer.
  7. I truly believe that I can make it on my own without government interference.
  8. I don’t want government handouts and anybody that does get a government handout and lives on welfare rolls and the taxpayers’ money are just lazy.
  9. I think that anybody who is good friends and gives a toast to P.L.O. leaders are anti-semites and racist and should not be in the Whitehouse.
  10. I’m an evil conservative clown whose sole purpose is to drive those guys on the left nuts.  Apparently, from some comments and e-mails I’ve received – I’ve been doing a good job!
  11. The guys who gave me my white hood made me promise to never vote for a black guy.
  12. God told me that the Obamessiah is a false prophet – in fact – I think He told me that Obama is actually the Anti-Christ and a Muslim.  Either that or he said I needed more anti-freeze in my car and to get a new muffler.  Couldn’t really hear that last part over all the racket at the firing range.
  13. Fox news told me not to vote for that black guy.
  14. Sarah Palin is hot!
  15. Mrs. BoBo wants a hummer – wait – that’s what I said to her – nevermind! ;)
  16. No…now I remember…Mrs. BoBo says she wants another SUV to match the diamond ear rings I bought for her birthday.  I want low taxes so she can remain a kept woman (must be that hummer thing!)
  17. I want to keep the money I put in my 401k.  I’ve been contributing to it for close to 20 years now – I think I deserve to keep it and do with it as I wish…and…if I don’t spend it all before I die…I would like for my wife and children to have access to ALL of what is remaining without having to give half of it to the government.
  18. I think we should have a President that actually will uphold our constitution as it is written – not try to change it by putting in liberal activist judges who want to hold it up to scrutiny of foreign opinion.
  19. I believe that the constitution says a President has to be a natural born citizen – he hasn’t given proof of that yet considering his own grandmother says he was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, and that he was adopted by his Indonesian step-father.
  20. And…lastly…I want lower gas prices – it takes a lot of gas to fill up Mrs. BoBo’s fleet of SUV’s.  We need to drill the HELL out of all known sources of oil and natural gas.

Well – that just about does it for now!  See you all tomorrow!  And..remember this list next Tuesday when you’re at the voting booth and trying to figure out who to vote for.  I’m sure some of you have this EXACT same list!

And..when you’re done here – Check this out at AmyOops’ place – too funny! Notice to All Employees

And..And…if you aren’t too impressed with MY list – Check out Angel’sBarack Obama is a Third World Despot Wannabe.

Wow!  We have a lot of submissions this week – and some very excellent one’s I might add.  I am amazed at the quality of submissions I’m getting here.  Please check all of these out – I’ve learned quite a bit from these – as I am sure you will also.


Pauly T. Kal presents Could This Be The “October Surprise” That Does Obama In? posted at Political Rants from the Right. Saying – There is a new report out now from the African Press International that says they plan on releasing a taped telephone conversation they had with Michelle Obama. Apparently, she thinks they are above the law!

Okay – this is pretty good “Pauly.” I wonder why this hasn’t hit the media either? I think you’re right – even if the API does release this before the election – it won’t get ANY play in the MSM over here!

Matt presents A Message to Undecided Voters posted at Matt-Speak.

Matt didn’t actually submit this to my carnival this week. While I was cruising by his place I saw this posted up. If you haven’t already been there and seen it – please do – even if you are not an independent trying to figure out who to vote for. Some great quotes from Ronald Reagan and Matt’s interpretation as it relates to this election. These are some good talking points for those times you get in a conversation with someone you know who is pro-Obama or independent.


Madeleine Begun Kane presents Ode To John “Air-Quotes” McCain posted at Mad Kane’s Political Madness.

(quote) eh – not bad (un quote) ;)

The Traveler presents Statue of Liberty – history posted at Ellis Island – Statue of Liberty. Saying – Some history about the statue of liberty.

Stuff we learned in middle-school – but – for many of us – it’s always a good thing to refresh our memories regarding the symbol of our liberty.

Wenchypoo presents Updated: The Law of Unintended Consequences Part III—Something for Nothing (Really L-O-N-G) posted at Wisdom From Wenchypoo’s Mental Wastebasket.

She’s right – it is really L-O-N-G but well worth the read.  Perhaps you might find out of you are one of those “something for nothing” people!  There is a dire warning in this post!  Oh..and..are you sure you intended for this to be under the Liberal category? ;)


Peter Midnight presents Should Pornography be Banned from the Internet? by Peter Midnight posted at Official Home of the Real Mr. Controversy Peter Midnight “The Black Horse”.

If you’re like me – you’re probably trying to figure out how this is related to politics – once you read the response to the question – you’ll get it.  Whether you like or dislike pornography – the answer is spot on!

My Journey presents Socialism is not a Good Idea Regardless of Angry and Incoherent Comments | My Journey to Millions posted at My Journey to Millions. Saying – My Discussion with a very special commenter from another blog.

A view of socialism from a Finance Planner and Libertarian perspective – pretty good if I say so myself given she rarely delves in to the political stuff on her blog! Beware – a self-professed socialist has already commented on her blog!


Jeffrey Stingerstein presents Perhaps It Is Time for the US to Create a Sovereign Wealth Fund posted at Disillusioned Words.

Wow! Actually sounds like a pretty good idea.  Something I would have to really think about – but – it is a convincing argument.  The Indian Tribes in the U.S. also operate under this principle.

Phil for Humanity presents Why the Republican Party needs to Split << Phil for Humanity posted at Phil for Humanity. Saying – Traditionally, conservative meant fiscal responsibility, small government, support of old fashion values, and support of small businesses.

I could buy in to that idea there Phil!  After all, it was for many of those very reasons that I myself left the Republican party and became an Independent – after I joined the Libertarian party for a while there.

Jeffrey Stingerstein presents A Reality Check For the Wall Street Journal About the Bush-McCain Tax Cuts posted at Disillusioned Words.

Those are some very interesting correlations there Jeffrey.  However, I do disagree in that the reason for the collapse was because of the last 8 years under the Bush administration.  Yes, while the Republicans are complicit – it really does go back to the CRA in 1977 with the 1995 Clinton revision and again with the 2003 Bush revision.  But, with regards to everything else you have going on there – very interesting.  What I don’t see anywhere are the correlations with Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac over those same years and what was happening in the housing markets and derivatives during those same periods.  That might be another variable you should consider adding.


debergerac78 presents Congressman Mahoney’s apology falls flat posted at The Business Ethics Blog. Saying – …after failing to mention that he had a second affair at about the same time as the first.

Oh I so agree!  Being a Florida constituent – I remember the way he blasted Foley!  What a hypocrite this guy is.  Thanks for adding this to the carnival! Note to readers:  This is actually a post written by Lauren Bloom – a Business Ethics consultant.  I don’t know – maybe Lauren Bloom and Debergerac are the same person?!?!

Ron McKie presents Big Surprise posted at Phuck Politics.

I’m not ruining the surprise – you’re just gonna have to go and see for yourself!

Babak presents American Satisfaction At Record Low posted at Trader’s Narrative. Saying – When Americans are unhappy around election time, they vote against the incumbent party. Guess what? They are very very unhappy right now.

You need to check out the graph on this page – a tale tell sign if you ask me!

Jed Norwood presents Why You May Fail Going From Demo to Real posted at Forex Strategy Talk. Saying – Forex is a unique way to take advantage of what the economy is doing. Learn some very powerful beginners tips that will help you understand how and when to trade better.

Well – not really related to a political discussion – however, given today’s economy – great financial advise is always good.  This is the look at the potential downfalls of trying to trade on the real market the same way you do on a demo account.


Lisa Spinelli presents Who Would You Want Handling Your Money? posted at Greener Pastures: Personal Finance. Saying – Check out this chart published in a recent New York Times article “Bulls, Bears, Donkeys and Elephants.”

Very interesting graphic Lisa – but – where’s the supporting documentation?  I clicked the link you provided – but – it only links to the same graphic in the NYT.  I would like to know how they come to that conclusion considering I’ve always made money during a republican administration and lost money during a democratic administration.  Here’s 2 pointers – 1 – don’t take anything from the NYT as the truth – their stocks were just downgraded to junk status on Friday and 2 – if you post up graphics – ALWAYS provide the supporting documentation – where did those numbers come from?  I always like to go back to the source data to see if it has been skewed or manipulated in any way. Also this is only in the S&P market. Most people diversify and have their monies in many markets and many investing vehicles.

Rich Dansereau presents Sexist Arguments and Sarah Palin posted at Rich’s Blog.

Well, Rich – I do believe she is qualified.  In fact, I believe she is more qualified than Obama, McCain, and Biden together.  She is a threat to “progressive” women on the left and an even bigger threat to the males in the campaign because she is so much smarter and has 10 years of executive experience – which is what is needed for a President.  None of those other guys have any kind of budgeting experience – all they know how to do is write spending bills.  Oh – and she’s hot!! LOL.  You know..funny thing that you used “rug” as an example in your discussion there — intentional or freudian slip? ;)

Jon Swift presents Pro-America vs. Anti-America posted at Jon Swift. Saying – Many Americans are still unclear as to what is pro-America and what is anti-America, so I have made a handy chart that will give you some examples.

I like the cut of your jib there Jon! Very interesting chart – if there are any libs who saw that – I’m sure it pisses them off!

U.S. Common Sense presents Racism two weeks before the election posted at U.S. Common Sense.

Very good!  While there have been some mentions of racism at some of the McCain rallies – you are so correct that the majority of the “racist” comments or “race” being injected in to the race is coming from the so-called tolerant left.

taucan62 presents Candidates In The Pocket Of Wall Street posted at rjjrdq’s America. Saying – The politicians are going to crack down on those greedy Wall Street tycoons. Yeah, sure they are…

You are so right!  I was against that bailout from the beginning – and still am!  That $700 Billion bailout has now increased to $2 trillion as I predicted in a previous post.  I was so disappointed in McCain for signing on to that thing, especially with all the pork.  But – I will have to agree – follow the money.  Have I mentioned lately how much I hate politicians?
