Just a Little Election Reflection!

I'm getting sooo confused by the McCain camp recently.

I have heard Obama IS a terrorist and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama IS a Muslim and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama DID leave his grandmother in Hawaii to die and now he DIDN'T!

I have heard that Obama IS a Communist and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama IS a Socialist and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama IS too inexperienced to be president and now I hear NOTHING!

I have heard Obama is cool under fire and in control of himself and I have seen this myself!

I have heard Sarah Palin will 'take the blame' if McCain loses this election. I believe this is TRUE!

I have heard Sarah Palin is aware of this and is taking steps to protect herself from these charges! I think Sarah will be made a scapegoat whether they win or lose!

I have nothing personal against Ms. Palin. I just believe that she will need national political experience if she ever expects to rise up in the political hierarchy of Washington D.C. Hillary knows it's not easy to kick in the 'good ole boys club' door and have a cigar with the guys.

There is one definite in the universe and that is 'Everything Must Change With Time' or be swallowed up by it. Evolution isn't just for Biology Class anymore! Politics and personal attitudes must evolve as well or we may as well go back to living in trees. (Sorry Creationists, I have my beliefs too!).

The World: Iran mulls preemption strike against Israel

Sayed Safawi, director of Tehran’s Institute of Strategic Studies, a high-level Iranian think tank directly answerable to Ayatollah Khamenei, told foreign diplomats in London that Iranian military discusses a preemptive strike against Israel to prevent Israel’s preemptive strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities; Haaretz reports.
Iran lacks the missiles to massively breach Israeli air defenses, but even a few biological warheads can inflict serious damage on the Jewish state. Iran can do much better with the help of Syria’s mid-range missiles, but Syria is not ready for the 1973 scenario: attacking the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights to force the peace settlement.

What were they thinking?

McCain’s VP hopeful Sarah Palin is exposed spending $150,000 on clothes in the recent month. The money came from the Republican National Council and were spend in Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and similarly expensive stores.
Why couldn’t the lady keep her spending habits checked for another month?

The World: America starts talking to Iran

The US-Iranian negotiation on Iraq will start on Monday in Baghdad. America has nothing to offer Iran. Iran has nothing to compromise on: it wants to include Iraq in the Iran-dominated Shiite axis, and has almost succeeded by now. America announced its plans for withdrawal on several occasions and cannot pressure Iran.
Two days before starting negotiations with Iran, America has publicly launched a CIA war against Iran.

The World: More than a million US Muslims support al Qaeda

A third of American Muslims express positive opinion about al Qaeda or refused to answer. 26% or about a million US Muslims laud suicide attacks. The respondents show strong pro-Islamic sentiment, widely condemning the US antiterrorist operations. (Pew Research Center poll) There are 2 to 7 million Muslims in the US. Residents of Muslims countries show much stronger support for terrorism.

The World: Free travel to the US is for Israeli Arabs

Weeks ago, Internal Minister Sheetrit negotiated visa-free travel for Israelis to the United States. That move was a bit odd, as the government traditionally opposed travel restrictions on Israelis, many of whom would gladly move to a less scary place.
Now we learned that the Internal Ministry expects Arabs and Russian non-Jewish immigrants to make use of the new travel opportunities and leave Israel for illegal work in the United States.

Political Pollsters Are Killing the American Political System!

Barack Obama and John McCain are dead even in the XX poll today! Wow! I need to get out and vote!

Obama Leads McCain by 5 points in todays XX poll! Geez! McCain needs my support, I better get out and vote.

McCain overtakes Obama by 4 points in the XX poll today. Barack needs my vote, I better make sure I get out of work early that day.

Obama leads McCain with 2 days left by 12 points in the XX poll! Oh good, Obama's going to win, I can stay home and party while I watch on TV, AND Oh No! McCain's going to lose, there's no sense in voting now!

Does this sound familiar? I've heard it too many times in my lifetime. Just different names.

I say "To Hell with the Pollsters and the Polls they rode in on!". Americans have a history of being damned lazy when it comes to getting out and casting their vote. I'm not making that up, either. Given a good excuse to NOT vote, many will opt to stay home and watch 'fate' take it's course because the polls say there is a winner before the election really gets going. Remember "Dewey Wins!" where Truman actually won? The polls made the prediction and the newspaper went with it. Idiots, anything to beat the other papers to the deadline. We keep repeating the same mistakes of the past. Isn't that what history class was for? To AVOID repeating the mistakes of the past and learn what did work before! I guess there were a lot of dunces in those classes. What caused history class to be boring was the emphasis on dates and places with dates. They should have taught history as Cause and Effect Throughout Time. Who knew that Nixon would take 49 states in his election (poor Massachusetts and D.C.).

Getting back to my main thoughts regarding polls. Following polls is like chasing prices at gas stations, always looking for the one that suits you best! If poll XX says Joe Six-Pack is up by 5 and poll YY says Joe Plumbers-Helper is ahead by 6 and you support Mr. Six-Pack. Do you immediately believe poll YY to be crap? You Betcha, because Joe Six-Pack is a 'maverick'!

In a nutshell, polls are partisan BULL***T! They should have no place in our society and are a bane to our political freedom. They prejudge candidates based on predominantly false and potentially slanderous statements. I have heard outright lies spoken in this campaign, I won't say by whom, and have seen the follow-up polls announce the 'new' leader based upon these statements. I see coworkers wearing figurative blinders over their eyes because they are directed to think a particular way and follow doctrine set forth by their respective political parties with blind obedience. WAKE UP AMERICA! The rest of the world is waiting to see if we have grown up yet. Please, let's not disappoint our international peers because we are going to need them to recover from our financial situation no matter what anybody says.

I'll finish up by saying that I am going into this election as an Independent voter, I grew up voting as a Republican. I know what your saying, you've read my past posts and they appear partisan towards the Democratic candidate. No, I wrote those articles condemning the actions and decisions of a party structure and a man who had my vote, without question, in 2000. In 2008 I question the man and his motives. My major concern in this election is not the economy. Oh sure, it needs fixing but it will take more than 4 years to heal the bank account of America. I have been waiting for a candidate who WANTS TO OPENLY TALK to our friends and adversaries around the world. We haven't had any real dialogue with any countries since Bill Clinton. Why is that? Why do our allies now dislike and mistrust us? Why can't we find out what our enemies dislike about us so much and try to find a common ground to make peace before more blood is spilled. WHY CAN'T WE BE THE PEACEMAKERS WE ONCE WERE? WHY? It's because for the past 8 years we can't talk to the 'other guys' unless they jump through hoops and climb under bushes of preconditions. If I were one of those countries I'd say 'screw you' if you can't sit at a table with me and TALK! Talk is inexpensive and we need to save money! It's funny that places like North Korea and Iran have gone hard-line with us, especially since we used to have an open dialogue with them, albeit a strained dialogue, but a dialogue none the less.

Look what happened when Richard Nixon sent Henry Kissinger to China! The rest is history.

Did you learn that in school?

I did!

Todd Palin - Alaska Secessionist Party Member

I have no idea why the press hasn't gotten much of any steam on Todd Palin's affiliation with the Alaskan Secessionist Movement(AIP) ten years ago, a group who openly hates America and wants Alaska to break away from the U.S. The leader of this group affiliated himself with Iran in order to be able to address the United Nations to further their movement. Too bad Sarah had NO IDEA what Todd was up to while they were happily married. Such an UN-AMERICAN thing to do. I thought she said small towns were Pro American? I guess she lied BIG TIME!

I just don't understand why the press still follows this Bill Ayers business and does not address the Todd Palin America Go To Hell movement. Sounds Un-American to me!

The following is an excerpt from Political Punch.

Palin's husband Todd was a member of the AIP from October 1995 through July 2002, except for a few months in 2000. He is currently undeclared.

As part of their pushback against the charges of Lynette and Dexter Clark of the AIP, the McCain campaign says that Palin did not even attend the AIP convention in Wasilla in 1994.

But another former AIP official -- Mark Chryson, chairman of the AIP from 1995 to 2002 -- tells ABC News that "Palin was at the convention in 1994. She was there."

Was she a member?

Chryson can’t say. "She may have been, I do not know," he says. Their records don't go back that far.

"Ask Sarah," he suggests.

I'd love to. But she hasn't exactly been making herself available to the press.

Joe the 'unlicensed' Plumber

What rubbish this is. Joe won't be 'buying' that established plumbing business in Ohio until he gets his 'Plumbers License'. Oh, you didn't know Joe was NOT a licensed plumber? The business he wants to eventually buy evidently has a potential revenue of at least $250k a year? Isn't that putting the cart before the horse? Maybe that should be 'putting the turd before the plunger'. That's more appropriate for Mr. Joe the Plumber. Maybe John needs a good plunging AFTER your licensed.

Don't Vote for the Black Man!

That's right, I said it. Don't vote for the black man! Oh yes, that's right, don't vote for the white man either! Confused? Don't be, there is a good reason for it. We're not voting for a skin color contest, we're voting for the man who we feel confidence in, who we will trust with our lives, for the next four years. Not everyone will be happy with the outcome but then again you can't please everyone. A Democracy means that the majority 'vote' rules. What happens when a candidate has a tie and (hypothetically) 1 vote held the key, and you didn't vote? It means you effected the majority and may have allowed the minority to win because more of them voted than your party did. To that I say "too bad for you" now live with it and don't complain. You lose the right to complain when you don't vote for anyone because you chose not to participate. The best way for the nation to unite and begin to heal is to get out and vote, participate, let your voice count! Don't vote for a candidate based on their color, that's an insult to us all, especially to the candidate. It's like saying you like red hair, so if Bozo the Clown ran for office he'd get your vote because he had red hair. Be Smart and Vote Smart, but mostly - VOTE!
ps. Did I mention that you voted for Bozo for Secretary of the Treasury?

A Simple Message to Voters.

PLEASE! Do Not Sucumb to the Hate Mongering that is going on right now! Insecurity and mistrust bread this behavior. Desperation will fuel hatred among the people, causing good people to act irrationally! Ask yourself "Why does this person allow me to develop this hate and not try to temper it for the sake of all?". This is not the act of a responsible person, or persons. This behavior goes back to the George W. election where hate was directed at the media, just as racial hatred has recently been directed at an African-AMERICAN media sound-man. Is this being done now because they got away with it then? Does this make it right? If it does, My God, what have we become? Are we dogs running with the pack? Do what the Alpha dog directs, right or wrong? Lat time I looked in the mirror I saw a human, not an animal! Stop treating people like animals because if you REALLY cared about the citizens of this nation, Mr. McCain and Ms. Palin, you would be trying to heal the wounds that hurt so much and not rub salt in, to be self serving. Public servant, I thought, meant just that. Serving the people, not waiting to be served! Getting back to the hateful demonstrations at your rallys. There was a man in the 1930's who was a master at manipulating a crowd that was under financial hardships. He knew that to succeed he would have to direct the hatred somewhere else, to a group he hated himself. He knew he could accomplish his goals because the people needed to vent their frustrations and needed hope in return. What this eventually became was the Holocaust and the man who orchestrated it was Adolf Hitler. Remember, the citizens gave him everything he wanted and he gave them back more than anyone ever bargained for! This is the wrong way to enlist political support in a free country. Stop this insanity now!

Is McCain Starting a New National Socialist Party in the U.S.?

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did! John McCain has brought this presidential campaign to an all time low for any candidate the U.S. political system has ever seen. Why does he feel that the ONLY way he can get elected now is if he and his Ober-Fuehrer Sarah start a hate war against Barack Obama. Excuse me, did I say hate war? I meant to say racial hate war. What happens when you get the blood up in angry voters who are already mad at the government about the economy and make then question your opponents citizenry? When you ask "Who is he?" and when she makes outright lies that were disproved over a year ago. I guess if John wants to have the 4th Reich in place before he moves on to be with his 3rd Reich mentor he will have to get VERY DIRTY indeed. What a sad loser he is and what a brainless automaton she is to even get involved with this mindless garbage. Hello! Doesn't anybody see what kind of president he would make when he stoops to these low tactics? Do you really think that he cares a teeny tiny bit about "Joe six-pack"? Sarah is not much better. At her Clearwater, Florida rally she got people so mad about Obama and the press that they actually went after the press and verbally assaulted one African-American news worker with racial epithets. Nice example for potential future leaders of this great country. What do you think the rest of the world is thinking about us now. I think they'll be keeping a tighter reign on the money and some will keeps fingers closer to buttons they've been staying away from. You thought the Bush administration was bad? If he gets elected just wait. You haven't seen bad yet!
Just when this nation needs to come together to rebuild, McCain's storm troopers are out to destroy the fabric of America with hate and lies. John, what did that prison camp do to your mind?

Obama In, McCain Out! Take Sarah with you!

How much longer do we have to put up with the ramblings of this tired, sour old man called John McCain and his equally moronic slave of Creationism, Sarah Palin? When will they let the old lies die? Why is it necessary to run a dirty campaign if you have the best of everything on your side? I hate to tell you two idiots that I was going to vote for McCain until I saw how miserable and ugly John could get and how responsible and cool Obama stayed while putting up with your septic political diatribe. How about telling some true for a change? Why do your outdated speech writers need to keep bringing up a lie about a remark Sen. Obama allegedly made about attacking Afghanistan when the Associated Press, a year ago, disqualified it as a lie created out of context when it was actually George W. Bush that made the worse remark. Maybe they couldn't afford new speech writers so they had to hire last years version with last years rumors. I'm sorry to ramble but I just couldn't believe what I was reading in the Huffington Post and it infuriated me how desperate some political losers can get. All I see is a dirty campaign being run by two dirty bas***ds! Sarah needs to break away before her future in politics is harmed. Wait a minute, she needs to take her politics/religion somewhere else because they don't belong in the same room! So sayeth the Constitution of the U.S. Obama deserves it more because they don't deserve it at all!

Nailin Paylin Strikes a Chord in the Wrong Direction!

That Maverick, Sarah Palin has finally made the big time! Congratulations, Sarah! Larry Flynt is going to immortalize you in his feature length film, Nailin' Paylin! See what respect the cutesy candidate gets you when it should have been the serious candidate? What does she think she'll do when McCain passes away in a year or two, wink at Putin for arms negotiations? Well, back to what you asked for Miss Winky. Your in good company Sarah because Hillary Clinton will be portrayed by Nina Hartley, flesh screen legend! Sarah will be played by Lisa Ann, who "will be nailing the Russians who come knocking on her back-door." Hmm, maybe Putin WOULD like to negotiate with her as president! This link is to the script for the first scene of the movie, but a note of caution. This script is not for anyone under the age of 18 or those easily offended by sexually explicit dialog. If either is the case just click here!
