TOP TEN THINGS THAT CREEP ME OUT ABOUT OBAMA
CATEGORY: Decision '08, OBAMANIA!, Politics
I know it is not politically correct to say that Obama “creeps me out.” That’s because immediately after uttering such blasphemy, our friends on the left would put me on the couch and matter of factly inform me that I am suffering from “The White American Disease” and recommend a torturous rehabilitation that would include watching 6 hours a day of “Blaxploitation” films and continuous viewings of Roots in order to inculcate the proper amount of white guilt and outrage directed against white males into my racist psyche.
That’s fine. Just don’t include the execrable remake of Shaft in with the bunch. I much prefer the original with Richard Roundtree as the title character. Now that brother was kewl. He oozed class. And when it came to getting back at the man, he had no equal – all others were pale imitations. Samuel L. Jackson may be a better actor. But he’s something of a nerd, isn’t he? Roundtree, despite not being a gifted thespian, was anything but a nerd.
Anyway, this was a hard list to compile, especially since I didn’t want to get into his physical appearance. I understand he’s very healthy and works out all the time but good Lord, can’t we put some meat on the poor guy? He makes Jack Sprat look like Arne. No doubt there is a standing rule in the Obama campaign that absolutely, under no circumstances, is the candidate to be photographed next to a bean pole.
People can’t help how they look so perhaps it’s best we not include any physical attributes in this creep out list. Besides, Obama’s most obvious distinguishing physical characteristic is hard to miss. Lots of people have commented on it and been chastised for their shallowness. Considering how it dominates his appearance, it is strange that he never did anything to lessen its impact.
No, dummy. I’m talking about his ears.
TOP TEN THINGS THAT CREEP ME OUT ABOUT OBAMA
10. It creeps me out that whenever Obama makes an appearance, the rain stops falling and the sun comes out. As a rationalist I am loathe to ascribe a direct cause and effect to this phenomenon except that it happens quite frequently and the rainbow created by the sun breaking through the clouds spells out “Yes We Can!”
Probably just a coincidence…
9. It creeps me out that there are about twice as many women at Obama rallies as there are men. Now I am not of the Melvin Udall School of anti-feminist thought (when asked how he writes women so well, Udall responds “I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability”). But what is one to think when watching the reaction of females as Obama is speaking? I’m sorry, but it is hard to imagine a man covering their mouth, chest heaving, barely able to contain himself and then ooooohing and aaaaaahhing when the messiah says something particularly vapid and innocuous.
Elvis, I can understand. But a politician?
8. It creeps me out that the press seems hypnotized by this guy. Grown men and women blubbering like babes when talking about how exciting he is, how mesmerizing he is when he speaks. It’s as if “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” has come to life and the pods have been placed in every newsroom in America. It isn’t just Crissy Mathews and MSNBC. It’s news anchors at CNN, reporters for Time and Newsweek, editorial writers at WaPo and the New York Times. Big media is in the tank for this guy in a big way. They have thrown off all semblance of fairness (never mind objectivity) and just don’t care that people know they are in Obama’s corner. They can’t be shamed into changing. They evidently won’t be deflected from doing their best to elect Obama.
This kind of thing causes the hairs on the back of my neck to prick up – like walking through a graveyard at midnight. It is just plain creepy – no other word for it.
7. It creeps me out that Obama’s rhetoric about America is so apocalyptic. It is “the worst” this or “the most” that. He is a serial exaggerator – so much so it would be impossible for anyone to debunk all of his outrageous “doom and gloom” claims.
And what’s really, really creepy is that after addressing this litany of horrific evils perpetrated by Bush and the Republicans, he holds himself up as just the man to fix everything. If the United States were as bad as he describes it, no sane person would want to live there. And yet, Obama will ride to the rescue and “restore” America.
Shining knights on white horses riding to save us is one thing – we’ve seen that before many times in American politics. But Obama’s powers extend beyond Coolidge’s Hoover’s promise of a “chicken in every pot” to a promise to heal the souls of America and Americans.
I don’t know what’s creepier. The candidate saying it or his supporters believing it.
6. It creeps me out that with the exception of most conservatives, Obama’s radical associations and radical past – including his being on a first name basis with an unreconstructed terrorist – doesn’t seem to bother many people. What am I missing here? When Obama makes an actual political alliance with a radical Maoist organization like The New Party, going so far as to attending their meetings and recruiting their members to work on his state senate campaign, why is there no call for the candidate to explain himself? Nor has there been any effort – save a couple of scattered stories in the National Review and elsewhere that detail Obama’s association with the radical group ACORN.
It’s as if the entire “Obama movement,” made up mostly of good, mainstream Democrats, is so in thrall to the candidate that they can’t see the warning signs of this fellow’s true radicalism. They dismiss his past by simply pointing to the here and now and saying “See? He really is a moderate kind of guy after all.” We don’t know that because no one has ever – ever – asked him to explain why he sought the endorsement of a radical communist group when running for the state senate and why he associated himself with the radical group ACORN.
Beyond creepy. Truly scary…
5. Has there ever been a creepier presidential hopeful’s spouse than Michelle Obama? She actually said this to a political gathering last February: “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”
Rarely has there been a creepier utterance by a major candidate for president or his spouse (Ron Paul has said some very, very creepy things). This one set off alarm bells in my head the moment I heard it. It elicited the question that many of us who oppose this guy have been asking more and more frequently lately.
Just who in the hell does this guy think he is? “Require” us to do what? “Demand” what? Besides coming off sounding like Evita Peron, Michelle Obama has a very weird view of the art of politics which works by persuasion and not by compulsion.
That one registers a 8.5 on the Creepy-O-Meter.
4. It creeps me out that Obama continues to speak as if he is president already and that the election is some mere formality that if he had his druthers, we could do without. His use of the royal “we” is very weird as well. Jack Tapper of ABC News noticed the same thing about Obama and his staff. Just one example of many: During an interview with ABC’s Nightline, he said he “wouldn’t be doing my job as Commander in Chief” if he just did whatever the generals said in Iraq. Obviously, it is not his job. And this is not the only example as Tapper points out in that Newsbusters piece.
A couple of times where the candidate falls into the mental state of what he would do as president and referring to himself as already elected would be understandable. Obama does it all the time and is seemingly unaware of how it makes him appear.
3. I find it very creepy that Obama removed the American flag at the back of his plane and replaced it with a great big “O?” Tell me that doesn’t creep you out. The flag and the “O” would be just fine. But why remove the flag?
Judging by the way he has flip flopped all over the place on the flag pin mess (which I believe is a non-issue whether or not he wears it but the flip flopping is of legitimate concern) it should call into question just what this guy believes. Again, warning bells should be going off in everyone’s head and either the press is too cowed to ask him questions about it or they just don’t care.
2. I can’t believe every American wasn’t creeped out by Obama’s fake presidential seal that he featured for exactly one day at a conference of governors. This story actually gave me a slight feeling of panic wondering if this guy is a megalomaniac with delusions of grandeur or…what? I couldn’t think of another reason any candidate would have the audacity of overweening pride and destructive ambition to create, approve, and then display such an artifact. Did someone bother to ask the candidate what he was thinking when he approved the use of that seal?
I thought not. The press may not have liked the answer.
1. The number one thing about Obama that creeps me out is the ease and comfort with which he lies. All politicians lie. Presidential candidates lie more than other politicians. But Obama’s lies are brazen and breathtaking. His explanation for why he allowed his kids to be interviewed by “Entertainment Tonight” was so ridiculous as to be a parody of the truth. But he was allowed to get away with it because the venues he chose to “explain” his demonstration of parental stupidity were friendly or, as in the case of Good Morning America, hardly a news outlet at all.
Presidents lie all the time. They do so for a variety of reasons – mostly to save their political hides. But Obama lies as a matter of course and has a familiarity with the practice the begs for an explanation. Krauthammer thinks it’s ego. He sums up everything that creeps me out about Obama here:
Obama may think he’s King Canute, but the good king ordered the tides to halt precisely to refute sycophantic aides who suggested that he had such power. Obama has no such modesty.
After all, in the words of his own slogan, “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for,” which, translating the royal “we,” means: “I am the one we’ve been waiting for.” Amazingly, he had a quasi-presidential seal with its own Latin inscription affixed to his podium, until general ridicule—it was pointed out that he was not yet president—induced him to take it down
He lectures us that instead of worrying about immigrants learning English, “you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish”—a language Obama does not speak. He further admonishes us on how “embarrassing” it is that Europeans are multilingual but “we go over to Europe, and all we can say is, ‘merci beaucoup.’” Obama speaks no French.
His fluent English does, however, feature many such admonitions, instructions and improvements. His wife assures us that President Obama will be a stern taskmaster: “Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism … that you come out of your isolation. ... Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”
For the first few months of the campaign, the question about Obama was: Who is he? The question now is: Who does he think he is?
We are getting to know. Redeemer of our uninvolved, uninformed lives. Lord of the seas. And more. As he said on victory night, his rise marks the moment when “our planet began to heal.” As I recall—I’m no expert on this—Jesus practiced his healing just on the sick. Obama operates on a larger canvas.
I try to laugh and make fun of the candidate’s hubris, the wild eyed, gyrating women who nearly swoon when he speaks, the supporters who walk and talk as if they were programmed – but my heart is rapidly losing the desire to make sport of this situation. Unless he shoots himself in his own foot, this man is going to be the next president of the United States.
And that, dear subscribers, is the creepiest thing of all.

Hopium Helps You Forget
In the Chicago Tribune, no less.
It's America's most powerful drug. Once on hopium, you won't care if Iran has nukes or if taxes are raised during a recession or whether Obama keeps flipping and flopping on everything from foreign wiretaps to withdrawing troops from Iraq.
Who cares? Relax. Hopium is your friend.
Obama: 'Look At My Deeds'... That I Didn't Actually Do
By Jim Geraghty
Obama in Israel:
Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don't have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon.
I was going to say that Obama's statement that the Senate Banking Committee is "my committee" wasn't that big a deal, and not that surprising from a man who told Bibi Netanyahu that he was about ready to "fall asleep standing up." But he did say in the immediate preceding sentence, "Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don't have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds."
In this case, Obama's words are wrong, and "his deeds" don't actually include voting for this bill. He had no role in the "passage" of this legislation.
I don't think it is wise for Obama to try this stuff in front of the Israelis.
UPDATE: The Obama defense: the bill that passed included provisions that match legislation he introduced last year. The problem is, that doesn't explain the "we" and the "which is my committee."

Saving A Child
Gateway Pundit deserves credit for shining fresh light on this story. In his Berlin speech Obama uttered the following lines-
Now the world will watch and remember what we do here – what we do with this moment. Will we extend our hand to the people in the forgotten corners of this world who yearn for lives marked by dignity and opportunity; by security and justice? Will we lift the child in Bangladesh from poverty, shelter the refugee in Chad, and banish the scourge of AIDS in our time?
What he, and I'm sure a great deal of Americans too, might not be aware of is that John McCain and his wife, Cindy, have already done so- by adopting a child from Bangladesh and raising her in America as their own.
(I)n 1991 Cindy McCain was visiting Mother Teresa's orphanage in Bangladesh when a dying infant was thrust into her hands. The orphanage could not provide the medical care needed to save her life, so Mrs. McCain brought the child home to America with her. She was met at the airport by her husband, who asked what all this was about. Mrs. McCain replied that the child desperately needed surgery and years of rehabilitation. "I hope she can stay with us," she told her husband. Mr. McCain agreed. Today that child is their teenage daughter Bridget. ...(T)here was a second infant Mrs. McCain brought back. She ended up being adopted by a young McCain aide and his wife.

The Onion has a go at Liberal Feeling... Hilarious and true.
CEAMURLIA, ROMANIA—Clearly frustrated by the third disheartening rampage on their town this week, a band of perturbed, torch-wielding villagers gathered at the gates of Dr. Benedikte Cojocaru's castle Monday to confront the monster that had left a trail of inappropriate destruction and chaos, in hopes of communicating how let down they all felt by his murderous actions, sources said.
"What were you thinking?" respected village elder Petar Grul said. "You've been out all night, doing God knows what, while we cower in our homes unable to sleep. Frankly, we're at the end of our rope here."
"Just—just don't say anything," Grul added after the raging creature hurled a massive chunk of masonry down from the parapet at the assembled crowd. "You go think about what you did."
The stern, no-nonsense confrontation was only the latest in a series of vexing monster-related incidents. Over the past year, similar rampages have killed 22 people and an entire flock of sheep, destroyed a flour mill, and left the townspeople wondering if the beast ever even considers their feelings at all.
A number of residents who have lost their patience with the unholy creation said they have tried being mad, but decided it is not worth the effort if the monster is just going to keep crushing the skull of every innocent blacksmith's daughter who makes the mistake of offering him a flower. According to Grul, the townspeople have "had just about enough of this business," and resolved to address the issue openly with a full and frank discussion, "no matter how painful it may be." A two-hour chase through foggy moors ensued, at which point the monster took refuge in the closest thing he had to a home, the castle of his creation.
Abandoning previous tactics of setting more specific boundaries, taking away privileges, and lighting him afire, the mob cornered the beast to unleash their chagrin.
"You may be an abomination in the eyes of God, but that doesn't give you the right to terrorize us," villager Sorin Mironescu yelled. "And don't you try to change the subject by saying you never asked to be created. We all have problems. You are a miracle of science, darn it, and it's time you started acting like one."
Should the mob fail to get through to the monster, sources said its members plan to go home, bolt their doors and windows shut, throw up their arms, and have a long talk about what to do next.
"I just think he's capable of doing so much better," said Stefan Mikrvicz, who has personally had "more than a few" run-ins with the monster. "We're not here to assign blame, but on the other hand, we do feel this situation really needs to be improved."
The monster is reportedly a hideous patchwork of human and animal parts stitched together into a rough approximation of a person, and is possessed of the strength of 10 men. It was created with limbs and organs stolen from graves and was imbued with the spark of life through a powerful magnet by crazed scientist and prominent community figure Doctor Cojocaru, who described himself as "totally exasperated" by the whole ordeal.
"Look at him," said Cojocaru, gesturing to the snarling man-thing pacing the castle's ramparts. "I made him to triumph over death itself and play God, not to sit here and watch him make bad choice after bad choice. Was it me? He's really let us all down, and I just don't know where we went wrong."
Efforts to coax the monster outside for a good talking-to, including pitchfork-waving, rock-throwing, and guilt-tripping, have thus far yielded no positive results.
"He's obviously a smart guy—he mastered the power of human speech without being taught, and that says a lot," villager Theodr Brezeanu said. "But we can't help him unless he helps himself. Right now all he seems to want to do is hang out and drown small children for no good reason."
This is not the first time Ceamurlia has had its expectations dashed by a horrific creature. In 2004, a werewolf tore apart three villagers in a dismaying bloodbath, and in 2007, a local vampire created an army of undead and filled everyone with shame.
Despite the loss of livestock, family members, and trust, many villagers continue to believe the sullen beast will someday straighten up and be more like Count Radulescu's monster, who always makes such nice finger sandwiches for their parties.
Why must these politicians act in contempt of their constituents? These people just do what "they" think is right. What they do has nothing to do with what the people want. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THIS COUNTRY???
Pelosi Blocks Gas Price Relief
By Henry Lamb
July 29, 2008
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN that she would block any vote to allow offshore drilling. This remarkable stance comes in the face of the latest poll that says 73 percent of Americans favor offshore drilling, while only 27 percent oppose it. Nancy Pelosi again displays her contempt for her employer, the American people. Her arrogance and wrong-headed philosophy have led Congress to an approval rating of a staggering 14 percent, the lowest ever.
The arguments she advances in defense of her position are, at best, silly, and at worst, devious. She says she will not allow additional reserves to be drilled because oil companies already hold leases on 68 million acres of federal land that are not being drilled. She ignores the testimony of oil company representatives who tell her that had they found oil under these lands, they would be pumping it. The oil companies need to drill where the oil is.
There is plenty of oil to drill. Known reserves offshore, in Alaska, the Bakken fields of North Dakota and Montana, and elsewhere, can meet the energy demand for at least 100 years. But Pelosi and her colleagues don't want this oil produced. Pelosi says that it will take 10 years for this new oil supply to reach the pump, and then, it would reduce the price by only two-cents per gallon. This price projection is pure fiction.
As an alternative, she says the president should release 70 million barrels of oil from the strategic reserves, which would provide immediate price relief. Is this silly, stupid, or just more of Pelosi's political doublespeak? This alternative would supply less than four days of the U.S. demand, which would not likely even be noticed at the pump. It would do nothing to solve the underlying problem of too little supply.
Pelosi, like Al Gore, wants to end America's reliance on oil, and switch to new, exotic, yet-to-be-developed energy sources such as wind, solar, hydrogen, and in particular, electric cars. America has been investing heavily in research in all these areas for years. Some significant progress has been made. No one in their right mind -- which includes Al Gore -- can think this new technology can be available within the next ten years, with enough distribution to make hydrogen filling stations and recharging for electric cars viable options. It is certain, however, that by developing known oil reserves, the U.S. energy demand can be met in 10 years, or less.
There is a big disconnect between the rush to convert automobiles to batteries, and the reality that the electricity to recharge those batteries would require a massive new generating capacity. The same flawed excuse of "protecting the environment," has also blocked the expansion of electricity generating capacity. If the self-appointed gods of environmental protection won't allow the expansion of electricity generation, how are the batteries of all these new electric vehicles going to be recharged every night?
Another major disconnect between the rush to replace oil with renewable sources such as wind and solar is the negative environmental impact of these renewable technologies. For example, to replace a single 50-megawatt coal-fired generating plant, which may occupy as much as 20 acres of land, approximately 3,000 acres of land would have to be occupied by wind turbines. To produce 50-megawatts of electricity from solar panels would virtually cover even more land. How can these protectors of the environment justify blanketing the land with whirling bird-killers and solar panels that block the sun from all forms of life beneath them?
Some environmental purists genuinely want America and the world to return to the stone-age. Nancy Pelosi is no environmental purist. She is a political creature, which is a person so intoxicated by power that the instinct to retain and expand it overwhelms common sense, logic, ethics, morality, or anything else that might get in the way.
By her refusal to even allow debate on proposals to expand oil development -- where oil is known to exist -- she stands like a barricade between thirsty consumers and a new mountain stream. She apparently sees herself as a self-appointed savior; she is, in truth, acting as judge and jury, condemning a nation desperate for more energy to spiraling energy costs for possibly another generation.
This is not a new posture for Democrat leadership. Democrats in the House, the Senate, and the White House have blocked expansion of oil supplies for more than a decade. Had Bill Clinton not vetoed the bill that would have opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge more than a decade ago, gas prices would not be as high as they are today. Millions of jobs would have been created, and every American could have saved the money needlessly paid to foreign sources for oil, simply because one man played God and defied the express will of the people.
Nancy Pelosi is now playing God, standing where Bill Clinton stood more than a decade ago, defying the expressed will of the people by blocking access to the known oil reserves that are so desperately needed by the entire nation.

These politicians seem to oppose the use of marijuana out of hand and therefore believe the rest of us should too. Wake up your politicians....let them know what you think.
Dear Mr. K:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the legalization of marijuana. I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.
As you may know, marijuana has been considered an illicit narcotic since the passage of the Congressional enactment of "The Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970," otherwise known as "The Controlled Substances Act" (CSA). This law overhauled the existing state and federal statutes governing marijuana. The CSA established a new system for "scheduling" or classifying drugs based on their potential for abuse. Congress declared that those drugs with a high potential for abuse and no generally accepted medical use, would be defined as Schedule I drugs. Marijuana was one of several narcotics that were placed in Schedule I of that Act. I oppose the legalization of marijuana as I am convinced that its potential for abuse is substantial.
Thank you again for sharing your views with me. While we disagree on this issue, I am glad you took the time to contact me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future on matters of concern to you.
Member of Congress
As most of you have probably heard by now, Arizona has become the scene of yet another campus shooting. On Thursday, July 24, a 22 year old opened fire on the campus of South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, in what police are describing as a continuation of an argument with another person in a classroom on the campus. Thankfully, none were killed, although three people were wounded. Though firearms are banned on campuses throughout the state in accordance with the policies of the Arizona Board of Regents, in yet another stunning example of the obvious, only the law-abiding are adhering to these rules.
During the last session of the legislature, AzCDL attempted to get SB 1214 to the Senate floor for a debate and vote. As you may recall, this was Sen. Karen Johnson's bill that would have allowed law-abiding citizens with CCW permits to carry concealed weapons on college and university campuses. Unfortunately, due to staunch opposition from anti-rights groups, certain law enforcement associations, and the administrative officers of several of the universities, all of the Democratic Senators, and several of the so-called "moderate" Republicans, lined up against the bill, so the Senate leadership refused to bring it to a vote.
Had this bill successfully passed the legislature, and somehow avoided the veto pen of our Governor, perhaps there might have been some deterrent effect in place for a young man whose only apparent desire was to continue an argument. Unfortunately, given the existing situation, he was able to escalate that argument to an extreme level, largely because he knew that no one would be around who was able to properly resist him. Even had he not been deterred by the likelihood of armed resistance, at least someone with proper training might have been able fight back and subdue him. As it was, he escaped long before police arrived on the scene, and was only apprehended later.
We believe that it's far past time to take our schools back. We wholeheartedly agree with the opponents of SB 1214 that our schools and universities should be safe havens, free from the scourge of violence and lawlessness. Where our views diverge is how to get there from here. Putting up a sign that says "Gun Free Zone" has had the perverse effect of increasing school shootings, which should surprise no one. After all, criminals don't obey laws. That's why we call them criminals. The sign may as well read "Disarmed Victim Zone". If the opponents of SB 1214 truly believe that removing guns from the hands of the law-abiding makes people safer, than we'll expect them to promote a bill that takes guns away from policemen. We won't be holding our breaths.
Given these realities, we ask you to please stand ready to support our "school carry" initiative during the next legislative session. We told them last year that we weren't going away, and we meant it!

effective mall security
It’s a toss-up between the 233rd Tactical Retail Center Intervention Team (Golf Cart borne), based at the Mall of America, or Steve, the senior security guard at West Town Mall in Knoxville, Tennessee. Steve has a really bright flashlight, and rumor has it that he was in the ‘Nam, where he once killed an entire brigade of NVA generals with half a mag of M-16 ammo and a P38 can opener, in the Battle of God Dang, in the Wee Schlong delta. Steve just got certified on pepper spray after his fourth try, and he can’t wait to empty that two-ounce canister of respect into the face of the first punk-ass little bitch kid that mouths off at him in front of the arcade again.
Man...these politicians can't really be this dense, can they?
Here's the response I got from Dianne Feinstein when I wrote to her about marijuana prohibition. I figured that since she's a liberal that she would 'feel' for the people and hold similar beliefs. I might have been right in my thinking except for the fact that liberals are anti liberty....I forgot about that part. Here's her response - canned drivel.
Dear Mr. K:
Thank you for your letter expressing your opinion on the legalization of marijuana.
Please know that I do not support the legalization of any narcotic drugs, including marijuana. My convictions on this matter have been developed over many years of experience in criminal justice, including nine years as a mayor who worked very closely with the law enforcement community. I know the tragedy that drug abuse causes in the lives of the addicted and on victims of drug-related crimes and their families. I have seen the devastation drugs can inflict on a community.
I do recognize that marijuana may have medicinal properties that could alleviate conditions such as AIDS-related wasting and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. I do not oppose further research on the potential medical efficacy of marijuana and support compassionate use in medical situations when prescribed by a physician in writing for serious and/or catastrophic illnesses.
Again, thank you for taking the time to write. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841. I also urge you to utilize my website, http://feinstein.senate.gov, to keep up to date with current Senate activities and the work I am doing for California.

Obama is a three-year senator without a single important legislative achievement to his name, a former Illinois state senator who voted "present" nearly 130 times. As president of the Harvard Law Review, as law professor and as legislator, has he ever produced a single notable piece of scholarship? Written a single memorable article? His most memorable work is a biography of his favorite subject: himself.

Now, this might be some sort of an Ad something attack....well, so be it. Here's a story of a fellow who killed someone with a hammer.....then right before his state put him to death for his crime, he wished to thank the academy.....and Barack Obama. Take that for what it's worth.... Barack is probably just sad that he's lost a voter.
Before he died Wednesday evening, death row inmate Dale Leo Bishop apologized to his victim's family, thanked America and urged people to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama...
A Lee County jury convicted Bishop in 2000 of participating in the murder of Marcus Gentry, who was beaten to death in December 1998 with a claw hammer.

I think I'll do this regularly... Sometimes I see some pretty funny search strings that lead people to me. This one is in reference to the politician, whose name isn't worth mentioning, that says that Barrel Shrouds should be banned.... but she doesn't have the slightest clue what they are...

(This is a guy that use to be in my ward - so someone I know personally. He is the father of six and currently serving in Afghanistan . This is his take of Senator Obama visit to "the troops". Kind of a different take that what you will see on the news. Make of it what you will. ~ Sheri)
As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass
along that Senator Obama came to Bagram Afghanistan for about an hour
on his visit to "The War Zone". I wanted to share with you what
happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle,
got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the
commander here at Bagram. As the Soldiers where lined up to shake his
hand he blew them off and didn't say a word as he went into the
conference room to meet the General. As he finished, the vehicles
took him to the ClamShell (pretty much a big top tent that military
personnel can play basketball or work out in with weights) so he
could take his publicity pictures playing basketball. He again
shunned the opportunity to talk to Soldiers to thank them for their
service. So really he was just here to make a showing for the
American's back home that he is their candidate for President. I
think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way
over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that
they are providing for you. I swear we got more thanks from the NBA
Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders than from one of
the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States . I
just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our
Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around
those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.
If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all
to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in
the news is all fake.

What Part of 'Drill Now' do they Not Understand?
Out here in West Texas we love our guns, we support our troops, and we treasure our freedom. We are an independent bunch and -- pardon me, Senator Obama -- fiercely but not bitterly so. We are proud to have our own things to do with as we choose to, as free people of the freest nation in the history of the world.
We also walk around on top of oil: yes it’s far beneath us, but it’s there. And all these aspects of West Texas come together to our astonishment and anger over the fact that our independence is limited by an intrusive federal government that tells us what oil we can and can’t access through drilling, and ultimately makes us dependent upon other nations for our own fuel supplies.
This dependence is made worse by the fact that it is arbitrary: that is, we don’t have to rely on foreign sources of oil because we lack our own but because our government has chosen foreign importation over domestic production. And we name names where I am from, so for clarity’s sake allow me to say that Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, and Kay Bailey Hutchinson are not keeping us in this position, but are pushing for common sense changes in energy policies that will result in greatly expanded domestic production.
The two main culprits here are Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who are currently enjoying a 9% favorable approvable rating among the American people. Perhaps you will remember Reid as the man who boldly declared we had lost the war in Iraq a year ago: the war we are clearly winning today. His poor judgment in war-fighting and his lack of faith in our troops are matched by his energy policies that keep us dependent on oil from the very parts of the world with which we are at war.

Ban the Assault Pools for the children!!
Disease From Toxic Pools, Drownings Show Pools Should Be Regulated, Even Banned
from The Ready Line by Brent Greer
A hundred cases of shigellosis have being reported in Ohio, and investigators are looking at daycare centers. The disease also can pop up from unhealthy water found in public swimming pools. Perhaps private pools as well?
Further, there are the drownings that occur every year in this nation in swimming pools, lakes and rivers. Hundreds and hundreds.
By some accounts, accidental shootings among children 14 and under averaged 71.5 a year from 1999 - 2005. Accidental drownings in that age range and period averaged over 845 per year.
So should we ban the assault pools? Because they are too toxic? I mean, really . . . no one NEEDS to go swimming, right? Just like the argument that the anti self defense crowd makes about no one needing a firearm? Should there be fences around inflatable pools? "If it saves just one life" is the mantra chanted by the Kool-Aid drinkers who blindly push for gun control. So why not mandate fences around inflatable pools?
The Obama campaign responded with this incredible piece of reasoning: 'When the President of the United States goes out to give a speech, it is not a political speech or a political rally.'
Of course, the statement is true. Problem is, Barack Hussein Obama is not the President of the United States, a small fact that he seems to have lost while on his trip to the Middle East and Europe. It's hard to maintain your sense of groundedness in reality when you are the subject of adoration 24/7 by those who liken you to the Savior of Mankind.

Quote of the Day
from Snowflakes in Hell by Sebastian
From the Mayor of San Francisco:
“[NRA is against] anything that restricts the opportunity for a guy who gets cut off in traffic from pulling out a hand gun and almost assassinating an entire family, as was the case a few days ago in San Francisco, where three people were gunned down. That somehow that is appropriate and wonderful and that person celebrated his freedom to carry a loaded pistol.”
It should be noted that the illegal immigrant who murdered the family had two prior felony convictions. But according to Mayor Newsom, it’s NRA’s fault. It’s not his fault, for running a city that’s incapable of controlling crime. It’s not the State of California’s fault, for making sure everyone except felons is appropriate disarmed from protecting themselves. It’s certainly not the federal government’s fault for a failed immigration policy. Nope, it your fault. It’s my fault. It’s anyone’s fault except for the people who’s fault it actually is. It’s like a two year old who blames his little brother for breaking the expensive china.

As I sit here waiting out my waiting period to take possession of my new GSG 5, I wonder why must I wait? What have I done that I can't pay for and take possession of my rifle and go kill some paper? I've done nothing....just like the waiting period laws. They've done nothing. In fact, murder rates rose after the introduction of longer waiting periods. Has anyone stopped to think that we have so much crime, not because guns exist....but because morals don't....and scumbags do. I'm sure it's far more complicated than that but why is the US so crime ridden? Families don't stay together or even eat together anymore. Television shows don't send a message anymore, a la Gentle Ben, Flipper, Brady Bunch, etc., now they push drinking, drugs, promiscuity, etc. Think MTV and "reality" tv. These things are helping to destroy America in my book.
So, I have to wait.... While I wait, I'll read the rest of this study by Clayton Cramer about the affect waiting periods have had on murder.....none.
The people at my office just don't get it. They snicker and sneer about how "paranoid" I am because I think people should be able to carry a gun. They laugh and joke about the idea that they might need to protect themselves someday from an oppressive government....to which, I replied.....remember England (and with an Englishman in the room)and that craz King of theirs? Remember his oppressive government that a a few guys with a few guns fought and conqured......and now we're sitting here in their country? Remember those guys? Maybe they don't see what's going in Darfur, Congo, Zimbabwe.....Hell...China. People really just think everything is fine and dandy. I guess they don't know that there are slimebuckets robbing, raping, and killing people like them...like us...every day. I'm not paranoid....I'm prepared (I hope). I'm prepared for when I am leaving my office and some piece of shit asks for a cigarette in hopes of shooting me in the face if/when I don't give it to him. It happens....
UPDATE: Here's a post about the same murder over at War on Guns
from The Right To Bear Arms
That’s what Say Uncle says. But of course, Barack has turned himself into a pretty slick politician. He has these absurd viewpoints on the second amendment, so he can say things like:
“I’ve been talking about the Second Amendment being an individual right for the last year and a half. So there wasn’t a shift there.”
Well, that’s true. Or is it? He had said previously that he believed the D.C. handgun law to be constitutional. Of course, in the real world, such a viewpoint cannot mesh with the support of the individual’s right to own a gun. If a state, city, county, district, etc. bans the ownership of handguns, and you support that, then you cannot claim you believe the second amendment protects the right of an individual to bear arms. But Obama thinks you can because he tempers his support of second amendment rights with the nonsense that local governments should have the right to provide “common sense gun laws” to keep firearms out of the wrong hands.
As I have said before, if anybody tried that line of reasoning with speech laws or abortion they’d never be able to get away with it and the media would have a field day. Imagine if John McCain said, “I support a woman’s right to choose, but believe local governments should have the right to provide common sense laws that will minimize abortions.” Why does Obama get a free pass?
Unfortunately, there are too many dullards in our country who listen to Obama’s double-speak on the issue and applaud like seals waiting for a fish.
So is Obama lying? Yeah, he is. He no more supports the right of the individual to own a gun than James Dobson supports abortion rights.
An elderly man suffered a massive heart attack. The family drove wildly to get him to the emergency room.
After what seemed like a very long wait, the E.R. Doctor appeared, wearing his scrubs and a long face.
Sadly, he said, “I’m afraid he is brain-dead, but his heart is still beating.”
“Oh, how awful,” cried his wife, her hands clasped against her cheeks with shock, “We’ve never had a Democrat in the family before” . . . !!!

Simple Talk on Money Issues--McCain vs. Obama
from The Liberty Sphere by D. Martyn Lloyd-Morgan
Here are the facts, folks...simple talk on money issues and how the two Presidential candidates' proposals will effect you in your pocketbook.
Here are the proposals, side by side, McCain vs. Obama. On the basis of these facts alone, Obama should be resoundingly defeated!
CAPITAL GAINS TAX:
MCCAIN: (No Change)
0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples)
McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.
Proposes a 28% tax on profit from ALL home sales.
How does this affect you?
If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain
on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to
down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the
profit you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will
adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their
homes as part of their retirement income. EXAMPLE: Buy a home 25 years
ago for$ 60,000.00; sell it when you retire for $250,000.00, pay the
government $53,200.00 in taxes
How will this affect you?
If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds,
college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that
pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the
money earned on taxes if Obama become president. The experts predict
that 'higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the
stock market yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.
MCCAIN: (No Change)
Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $31,250
OBAMA: (Reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)
Single making 30K - tax $8,400
Single making 50K - tax $14,000
Single making 75K - tax $23,250
Married making 60K - tax $16,800
Married making 75K - tax $21,000
Married making 125K - tax $38,750
How does this affect you?
Under Obama the lowest wage earners will have their taxes double!
No explanation needed. This is pretty straight forward.
MCCAIN: (No change, Bush repealed this tax)
Restore the inheritance tax
How does this affect you?
Many families have lost businesses, farms and ranches, and homes that
have been in their families for generations because they could not
afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved
ones will lose them to these taxes.
NEW TAXES BEING PROPOSED BY OBAMA:
* New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square
* New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already)
* New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water,
* New taxes on retirement accounts and last but not least....
* New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same
level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!
IF YOU WANT "CHANGE"…THIS WILL DO IT.
So.... The people at my office think I'm a pretty strange individual due to some of my tastes. One of those tastes is Kombucha tea. One of those people just heard about the possible medical benefits of Kombucha from a third party. Now, after telling me that the SCOBY looked like "whale blubber floating in pee", she wants to get started in brewing her own. I'm not one to begrudge anyone once they "come around" so I am bringing her a sample bottle and a SCOBY. I look forward to hearing about her 'brewing' experience...
This is what changed her mind:
Suggestion Four: Kombucha, the Amazing Mushroom Tea
Years ago the Russian government sent a team of investigators to check out why the residents of an area in Manchuria were cancer free. The people of this area also regularly lived to be over 100 years of age. After a two year study, the investigators attributed the longevity and good health of these people to a yeast enzyme tea called Kombucha. It had been part of their diet for hundreds of years. Now the use of Kombucha is spreading like wildfire in the United States.
In an April, 1995 issue of US Today newspaper, an article about Kombucha tea stated that five to six million Americans were drinking Kombucha tea daily. I am sure that this number of Kombucha drinkers has grown since then. It is inexpensive, I find it
fun to make, and most people enjoy the taste. I keep several one gallon "sun tea" jars of Kombucha brewing at all times. I keep the jars prominently sitting on my kitchen counter, where they become a conversation piece for my visitors.
During an August 1995 showing of the TV program Entertainment Tonight which covered Kombucha, it was mentioned that the Hollywood stars Cher, Susan Sarandon, Martin Landau, Meg Ryan, and Linda Evans were all Kombucha drinkers. In
addition, Anjelica Huston, Lily Tomlin, Morgan Fairchild, and Rita Coolidge are said to be Kombucha fans. It is reported that Kombucha cleanses the blood, stops cancer, increases energy levels, reverses hardening of the arteries, reduces high blood
pressure, boosts T-cell counts, removes wrinkles, thickens the hair, and relieves headaches. Studies in California report that HIV patients drinking Kombucha do not progress into Aids. Other testimonials state that it reverses graying hair, stops PMS,
reverses the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, and shrinks prostates.
Kombucha is known to provide the liver with glucuronic acid, a substance which the liver uses to detoxify our bodies. In this manner, Kombucha helps the liver to perform its critical function of "binding up" toxic substances so they can be carried away
by the blood and dispelled from our bodies.
Kombucha is fun to make, tastes great, is cheap, and if you take it daily, you too may live to become 100 years old!

Home Security in the South
from Front Sight, Press by Syd
HOW TO INSTALL A HOME SECURITY SYSTEM IN THE SOUTH
1. Go to a second-hand store and buy a pair of men’s used size 14-16 work
2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of Guns &Ammo
3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads:
Me, Big Jim, Duke and Slim went for more ammunition. Back in an hour.
Don’t mess with the pit bulls– they attacked the mailman this morning and
messed him up real bad. I don’t think Killer took part in it but it was
hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of ‘em in the
house. Better wait outside.
Obama is humorless, and full of himself. That would make him a great target for satire, except that his followers take the position that any mockery or criticism is racist. The prospect of four years of that sort of thing is the best reason I can think of not to vote for him. - InstaPundit

Man uses car to kill another person....AND HIS OWN DAUGHTER. The obvious reaction here is to ban cars. A very small percentage of car owners use them to kill, therefore, take them away from everyone! It only makes sense!!!
Um, not really sure what to say. The UK wants to ban kitchen knives because they have so much crime where the criminal uses one in his/her crime. Maybe, just maybe, the UK should let their people have guns again to defend themselves from the criminals.....like they used to. CRIMINALS are the problem...not the knives.

We're finally getting to see the theories become reality with Ethanol production. It doesn't make any sense. It's only affordable (WAS only affordable) because the .gov subsidizes corn. So now, with corn prices skyrocketing, even with the subsidies, and partly because of ethanol production, ethanol is growing out of reach of consumers....just like gas. WHO KNEW?
Big Gov screws up ethanol....a post to read.
“Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing [a people] to slavery.” -Thomas Jefferson

This guy's got his head on straight... Go have a look at his blog.
Here he talks about how he's relieved with people that he's pulled over hand him a CCW with their license...
You might remember when this accident happened 8 years ago this March. This Southwest Airlines flight from Vegas overshot the runway at Burbank .
The plane smashed past the airport fence, careened across the street and ended up with a collapsed landing gear, right next to a gas station.
But that's not the amazing part!!!
I predict that if Hussein obama is elected president of the United States, that this nation will lose a city, or more than one city, or a great part of a city and not just a few thousand people will be slaughted by the "peaceful religion of islam", but tens of thousands will be.
"From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and working. After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan. 143 days. I keep leftovers in my refrigerator longer than that." Columnist Cheri Jacobus

Ok... Tonight (at the range) kinda sucked... I went to the Gun Show today and bought stuff to reload .45 (bullets, primers and powder - I had brass). So, when I got home I was all stoked to get a bunch done. I decided to start at the lowest load that Hodgdon's recommended which was 4.3. Anyway, I couldn't get my damned powder measure to throw 4.3 but got it to throw 4.5 and figured it would be fine. So, I loaded three lots of ten at 4.5, 4.8, and 5.1. Cool, done.
All excited I went down to the range (I won't even go into the first 15 minutes wherein I couldn't get my cable lock off - anger ensued) and loaded up the 4.5 lot. First round, BANG, bulls eye. NICE. Second round, plick..... ? uh, tap rack, nothing. Next round won't seat. So, instead of pointing my gun at my face to see what the hell was wrong, I broke it down and voila! a bullet stuck in the barrel. Feeling a little lame at my inexperience I packed up and went out to the shop to seek some expert advice from Andrew. "Ooooh you got yourself a squib". [b] Ok...[/b] "you didn't have any powder in your case". [b]Great.[/b] So, he took the time to hook a brotha up and knocked the bullet out. Back to lane 18.
I decided not to fire anymore from the first lot (4.5) as I didn't want to go through that again, and moved onto the 4.8 lot. The 4.8 lot was great except for one dead primer. I'm not sure how often primers just don't work, but I hope it's about 1:2000. The 5.1 seemed to be about the same. The holes in the paper looked about the same, whereas the hole from the one round of 4.5 seemed to have struggled through the paper. So, I guess that means that the 4.8 is just right. Right?
I think I can get into this stuff.

More flip-flops by Barack a-lacka-ding-dong Obama
The hypocrisy of Chicago government runs deep. It doesn't stop short of the city's Alderman, otherwise known as "Aldercreatures". Specifically, pro gun control Alderman Richard Mell who forgot to register his guns (gun haters have guns?) so he had his uncle, Father in Law Blagojevich - the governor of Illinois, write a law that allows people to register their guns for one month. See, up until this one month law, if you forgot or failed to register your guns.....you were considered a criminal and could never register again.
Read the full hypocrisy here:
By now, rotated on countless television broadcasts, the image is indelible: Jesse Jackson, once the most influential African-American leader [Are you kidding me? People let this guy influence them??? - DJK] in the US, angrily jabbing his right arm and muttering about Barack Obama across a television microphone that he thought was turned off.
"I want to cut his nuts out," Jackson said to his fellow guest during a broadcasting break. "Barack, he is talking down to black people."
After being rebuked by his son, Jesse Jackson Jr, who is a co-chairman of the Obama campaign, the chastened clergyman spent a second day apologising for his remarks yesterday. Obama, the clergyman told reporters in Chicago, "represents the redemption of our country".
A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.
- Thomas Jefferson

“Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors.” —Joseph Story
“We live in an age of science and of abounding accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declaration created them. The things of the spirit come first. Unless we cling to that, all our material prosperity, overwhelming though it may appear, will turn to a barren sceptre in our grasp. If we are to maintain the great heritage which has been bequeathed to us, we must be like-minded as the fathers who created it.” —Calvin Coolidge

leads to broken promises, hypocrisy, under-hand political tactics, flip flops and Obama's list of 69 Documented LIES
