    Murray, you're not upsetting me by denigrating either of the Bushes. They were definitely not my favorite kind of president. Far as I'm concerned, we haven't had a good president since Ronald Reagan.


    I think there will be a significant change in the political landscape here in America but my biggest fear is that it will not take hold as once again the people with there hands out will once again overwhelm us with liberal/socialist attitudes after a couple more election cycles. These people cannot seem to grasp that your life is what YOU make of it, not what some one gives you.

    Get out and vote tomorrow!!!

    Looks like the worst nightmare of a lot of nominal right-wingers may be about to come true.

    IMO, the ultimate and delicious irony would be if this candidate won, whereby this person's former running mate lost. :thumbs_up::laugh:

    I'd vote for her any day of the week.

    As much as health care is going to hurt. Cap and Trade will be far worse in the short term. Any recovery that our econmoy may be in, which I really don't believe we are in a recovery, its all smoke and mirrors, anyways. Cap and Trade will be more damaging to the USA then the health care bill. It will literally cripple the economy and anything that has to do with transportation of goods and services. I hope people yank there heads out of there butts this fall and vote these jokers out because they are just plain flat out wrong.

    The hardest part to swallow is the burden that has been placed on future generations to pay for this massive pile of doo-doo. Now, I don't deny that health care needs to have some changes but the government is the last place that should be making them changes. They are not suppose to be making these types of decisions, in my opinion. Just like the government should not be bailing out the car companies and banks.

    Wow Mike, I hate it just as much as you but you said a mouthful. I will just say in the short sentence that it's just a power grab by the left and a way to keep the people bowing to the government. I hope 1 day people will wake up, but it sure doesn't look like they will anytime soon.

    I figured that, just having trouble reading the screen. It's late and I have been working on this down system since 7pm last evening. Hope to be out of here by 3am....

    Rest assurred though, i'd never have voted for him even if he'd been the only candidate running for that office. I'd have voted for Hitler or Eric Estrada instead.

    I hate sounding bad but, I think his wife is a pig too.

    Does your statement Ringo mean that you "did" vote for Obama?? I would tend to think you didn't but I don't understand what you are saying.

    I must say that I have kind of become a Facebook "groupie". Playing Mafia Wars has been consuming alot of my online time. I hate to say that when I haven't spent much time her with you guys. But that is what I have been up to. Well that and fishing......

    An excellent article. He is so right, Kennedy bluffed and no one called him. When he stands before God for judgment, hopefully Mary Jo is standing there with a sign, remember me.:headbonk:

    That is exactely what I said after he died....I can rest alittle easier knowing he can't dodge god's judgement.

    It's all about control Stumpy. Washington wants it and people are too lazy to see what is truly going on since there hands are out looking for something(in this case healthcare) that is "free". What most people don't understand is that nothing is free, just like the cash for clunkers stupidity, our genersations to come will be paying for this for a very long time.

    Yeah, it maybe to soon to think this but maybe the country caught on alittle quicker then we thought about his politics.


    I have stated this before. It is mostly about greed. And it starts at the top......Look at all these corporations that are declaring bankruptcy(I just read that Six Flags Amusement parks declared over the weekend) and usually it's after a number of years of record profits. Obviously none of them were saving for a rainy day and they were thinking the gravy train was never going to stop.

    What get's my goat is the tapxayers in America, well the one's that still have jobs, are the one's that will be footing the bill for this mess because none of the spineless politicians will do what is right. They just do whatever so that they can get re-elected by the sheep in this country.

    I thought this was pretty good

    Welcome Back, Carter
    by Ann Coulter


    Well, I'm glad that's over! Now that our silver-tongued president has gone to Cairo to soothe Muslims' hurt feelings, they love us again! Muslims in Pakistan expressed their appreciation for President Barack Obama's speech by bombing a fancy hotel in Peshawar this week.

    Operating on the liberal premise that what Arabs really respect is weakness, Obama listed, incorrectly, Muslims' historical contributions to mankind, such as algebra (actually that was the ancient Babylonians), the compass (that was the Chinese), pens (the Chinese again) and medical discoveries (huh?).

    But why be picky? All these inventions came in mighty handy on Sept. 11, 2001! Thanks, Muslims!!

    Obama bravely told the Cairo audience that 9/11 was a very nasty thing for Muslims to do to us, but on the other hand, they are victims of colonization.

    Except we didn't colonize them. The French and the British did. So why are Arabs flying planes into our buildings and not the Arc de Triomphe? (And gosh, haven't the Arabs done a lot with the Middle East since the French and the British left!)

    In another sharks-to-kittens comparison, Obama said, "Now let me be clear, issues of women's equality are by no means simply an issue for Islam." No, he said, "the struggle for women's equality continues in many aspects of American life."

    So on one hand, 12-year-old girls are stoned to death for the crime of being raped in Muslim countries. But on the other hand, we still don't have enough female firefighters here in America.

    Delusionally, Obama bragged about his multiculti worldview, saying, "I reject the view of some in the West that a woman who chooses to cover her hair is somehow less equal." In Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries, women "choose" to cover their heads on pain of losing them.

    Obama rolled out the crucial liberal talking point against America's invasion of Iraq, saying Iraq was a "war of convenience," while Afghanistan was a "war of necessity." Liberals cling to this nonsense doggerel as a shield against their hypocrisy on Iraq. Either both wars were wars of necessity or both wars were wars of choice.

    Neither Iraq nor Afghanistan -- nor any country -- attacked us on 9/11. Both Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as many other Muslim countries, were sheltering those associated with the terrorists who did attack us on 9/11 -- and who hoped to attack us again.

    The truth is, all wars are wars of choice, including the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, both World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the Gulf War, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. OK, maybe the war on teen obesity is a war of convenience, but that's the only one I can think of.

    The modern Democrat Party chooses -- really chooses, not like Saudi women "choosing" to wear hijabs -- to fight no wars. But the Democrats couldn't say that immediately after 9/11, so they pretended to support the war in Afghanistan and then had to spend the next 7 1/2 years trying to come up with a distinction between Afghanistan and Iraq.

    Maybe next they can tell us why fighting Hitler -- who never invaded the U.S. and had no plans to do so -- was a "necessity" in a way that fighting Saddam wasn't. (Obama on Hitler: "Nazi ideology sought to subjugate, humiliate and exterminate. It perpetrated murder on a massive scale." Whereas Saddam Hussein was just messing with the Kuwaitis, Kurds and Shiites.)

    Meanwhile, Muslims throughout the Middle East are yearning for their own Saddam Husseins to be taken out by U.S. invaders so they can be liberated, too. (Then we'll see how many women -- outside of an American college campus -- "choose" to wear hijabs.) The war-of-choice/war-of-necessity point must be as mystifying to a Muslim audience as a discussion of gay marriage.

    Arabs aren't afraid of us; they're afraid of Iran. But our aspiring Jimmy Carter had no tough words for Iran. To the contrary, in Cairo, Obama endorsed Iran's quest for nuclear "power," while attacking -- brace yourself -- America for helping remove Iranian loon Mohammad Mossadegh.

    The CIA's taking out Mossadegh was probably the greatest thing that agency ever did. This was back in 1953, before it became a collection of lawyers and paper-pushers.

    Mossadegh was as crazy as a March hare (which is really saying something when your competition is Moammar Gadhafi, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Saddam Hussein). He gave interviews lying in bed in pink pajamas. He wept, he fainted, and he set his nation on a path of permanent impoverishment by "nationalizing" the oil wells, where they sat idle after the British companies that knew how to operate them pulled out.

    But he was earthy and hated the British, so left-wing academics adored Mossadegh. The New York Times compared him to Thomas Jefferson.

    True, Mossadegh had been "elected" by the Iranian parliament -- but only in the chaos following the assassination of the sitting prime minister.

    In short order, the shah dismissed this clown, but Mossadegh refused to step down, so the CIA forcibly removed him and allowed the shah's choice to assume the office. This "coup," as liberal academics term it, was approved by liberals' favorite Republican president, Dwight Eisenhower, and supported by such ponderous liberal blowhards as John Foster Dulles.

    For Obama to be apologizing for one of the CIA's greatest accomplishments isn't just crazy, it's Ramsey Clark crazy.

    Obama also said that it was unfair that "some countries have weapons that others do not" and proclaimed that "any nation -- including Iran -- should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty."

    Wait -- how about us? If a fanatical holocaust denier with messianic delusions can have nuclear power, can't the U.S. at least build one nuclear power plant every 30 years?

    I'm sure Iran's compliance will be policed as well as North Korea's was. Clinton struck a much-heralded "peace deal" with North Korea in 1994, giving them $4 billion to construct nuclear facilities and 500,000 tons of fuel oil in return for a promise that they wouldn't build nuclear weapons. The ink wasn't dry before the North Koreans began feverishly building nukes.

    But back to Iran, what precisely do Iranians need nuclear power for, again? They're not exactly a manufacturing powerhouse. Iran is a primitive nation in the middle of a desert that happens to sit on top of a large percentage of the world's oil and gas reserves. That's not enough oil and gas to run household fans?

    Obama's "I'm OK, You're OK" speech would be hilarious, if it weren't so terrifying.

    It's a little sickening, and quite ironic, that POTUS Bambi, who just finished sucking up to various raghead leaders known for oppressing their people, is now in France to observe the anniversary of D-Day, when thousands of Americans, British, French and other nationalities gave their lives to free millions from oppression.

    Stumpy, we haven't seen that last of the hypocrisy and outrage from this president. I would have thought that nationalizing the banks would have got people outaged, then it was the 2 auto makers...America is heading down a slippery slope, that is for sure!!
