Obama's True Believers

I was raised to believe that you could tell a lot about someone by their friends and supporters. Mom used to warn us that if we hung with trash, people would think we were trash.

The image below is a screen print taken directly from Barrack Hussien Obama's Offical website. We've included a link to the page but the chances are that Obama's people will perform some damage control and take down the page.

We realize that the print is hard to read so here is the opening text from the page:

Marxists/Socialists/Communists for Obama

This group is for self-proclaimed Marxists/Communists/Socialists for the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency. By no means is he a true Marxist, but under Karl Marx's writings we are to support the party with the best interests of the mobilization of the proletariat. Though the Democratic Socialists of America or the Communist Patty of America may have more Socialististic values, it is pointless to vote for these candidates due to the fact that there is virutally no chance they will be elected on a National level. The members of this group are not Leninists, Stalinists, etc. and do not support or condone the actions of North Korea, China, Cuba or any other self-procalimed "Marxist States." They do not in anyway represent the Marxist philosophy nor do they represent Socialism/ Communsim. We support Barack Obama because he knows what is best for the people!

Says quite a bit about the people that are supporting the new messiah of the left.

In a related article, World Net Daily [READ MORE] documents several of the messages posted to the page by the supporters of Barrack Hussien Obama. Included amonst these are:

"The Neo-proleatarian is now the bearer of the Revolution. That's why I support Obama. He helps destroy the paradigm of bourgeoisie government, which is best for the Proletariat. In the end, this will only hasten the Revolution even if the Revolution must come as a massive government reform."

And from a poster identified as "The Chalk Graffiti Terrorist":

"We can’t just accept the evil side of capitalism. The nature of capitalism is to maximize profits, and this is often done by minimizing expenditure—in short, cutting costs. And cutting costs means less benefits, less pay, and poorer conditions for the workers. But capitalism has more evil in it than that. The profit motive drives the destruction of our environment, it has caused the current foreclosure crisis, and it exploits and basically enslaves those poor not protected by legitimate representative government."

We strongly urge you to check this out for yourself.

Barrack Hussien Obama's Website

These radicals are supporting Barrack Hussien Obama for some reason, what ever it may be. But you can be sure it is not for any reason that most Americans would find acceptable.

Obama's failed housing policy

While mainstream media continues to fawn over the new messiah of the left, Barrack Hussien Obama, the fact is the "best hope for change" really is nothing much more than just another two-bit Chicago politician. A good case in point is Obama's failed housing policy while a state senator in Illinois.

Obama, as a presidential candidate, has been promising to create an Affordable Housing Trust Fund worth approximately $500 million a year to developers. The objective would be to build and manage more 'affordable housing'. This is just about the same approach that Obama sponsored while a state senator, an approach that has proven to be a dismal failure for the people who were supposed to benefit while being a success for several of Obama supporters and campaign donors.

CHICAGO - The squat brick buildings of Grove Parc Plaza, in a dense neighborhood that Barack Obama represented for eight years as a state senator, hold 504 apartments subsidized by the federal government for people who can't afford to live anywhere else.

But it's not safe to live here.

About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition.

Grove Parc has become a symbol for some in Chicago of the broader failures of giving public subsidies to private companies to build and manage affordable housing - an approach strongly backed by Obama as the best replacement for public housing.

[Read the full story]

While the residents of Grove Parc are suffering, many of the developers, friends and supporters of Barrack Hussien Obama, are doing fine, thank you.

Among those tied to Obama politically, personally, or professionally are:

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama's presidential campaign and a member of his finance committee. Jarrett is the chief executive of Habitat Co., which managed Grove Parc Plaza from 2001 until this winter and co-managed an even larger subsidized complex in Chicago that was seized by the federal government in 2006, after city inspectors found widespread problems.

Allison Davis, a major fund-raiser for Obama's US Senate campaign and a former lead partner at Obama's former law firm. Davis, a developer, was involved in the creation of Grove Parc and has used government subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,500 units in Chicago, including a North Side building cited by city inspectors last year after chronic plumbing failures resulted in raw sewage spilling into several apartments.

Antoin "Tony" Rezko, perhaps the most important fund-raiser for Obama's early political campaigns and a friend who helped the Obamas buy a home in 2005. Rezko's company used subsidies to rehabilitate more than 1,000 apartments, mostly in and around Obama's district, then refused to manage the units, leaving the buildings to decay to the point where many no longer were habitable.

Campaign finance records show that six prominent developers - including Jarrett, Davis, and Rezko - collectively contributed more than $175,000 to Obama's campaigns over the last decade and raised hundreds of thousands more from other donors. Rezko alone raised at least $200,000, by Obama's own accounting.

One of those contributors, Cecil Butler, controlled Lawndale Restoration, the largest subsidized complex in Chicago, which was seized by the government in 2006 after city inspectors found more than 1,800 code violations.

[Read the full story]

Do us all a favor folks and start to ask Obama and his minions the hard questions rather than falling for the 'candidate of change' garbage. The job of President of the United States is arguably the most important job in the world. Whoever fills that job should be someone who has been fully honest with us, who has proven that they are what they claim to be and not just a repackaged windbag.

The ObamaMessiah's Great New Oil Policy

The ObamaMessiah has announced his brandy new, spanking fresh oil policy [read]. The man portrayed as representing change and a fresh approach to government and politics, has come up with THE plan. Or has he?

ObamaMessiah is calling for Congress to close a tax loophole signed into law by Bill Clinton. This particular gift from Bubba was a loophole that has allowed oil speculators to run wild. In and of itself, this is a good idea. However, it is hardly an "activist, populist approach to regulating business". He is simply taking credit for the efforts made by many others before him.

The problem with this "oil policy" is that it is a one-trick pony and will not lower gas prices one cent nor develop an iota of new resources. Rather than drill for proven reserves, ObamaMessiah like all liberals (aka progressives), is simply pushing for even greater government control of private industry. Rather than really fix a problem, they choose to set up a government entity to make things even worse.

Hey ObamaMessiah, if rehashed liberal policies is the best you can come up, perhaps you best can this "Change we can believe in" crap and go back to being the JUNIOR Senator from Illinois.

Then Enemy Attacks Americans Again

Once more the privacy of Americans is under full assault and it comes as no surprise that the attack comes from our very own Congress.

Washington, DC - Hidden deep in Senator Christopher Dodd's 630-page Senate housing legislation is a sweeping provision that affects the privacy and operation of nearly all of America’s small businesses. The provision, which was added by the bill's managers without debate this week, would require the nation's payment systems to track, aggregate, and report information on nearly every electronic transaction to the federal government.

FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey commented: "This is a provision with astonishing reach, and it was slipped into the bill just this week. Not only does it affect nearly every credit card transaction in America, such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, but the bill specifically targets payment systems like eBay's PayPal, Amazon, and Google Checkout that are used by many small online businesses. The privacy implications for America's small businesses are breathtaking."
[Read More]

Please notice that this massive attack on the privacy of every American who uses a credit card is not coming from President Bush or the evil Republicans. It is the handiwork of Senator Christopher Dodd, a member of the Democrat party representing Connecticut.

One can not help but wonder why the Democrats believe the government needs a record of every credit card transaction for every American citizen and just what is it that they plan to do with this information? Why is it the one of the leaders of the party of the common man is trying to delve this deeply into YOUR PRIVATE SPENDING habits?

Other questions that come to mind include

Why is this buried in a housing bailout bill?
Why was it added without debate?
How will the government protect this data?
How much will we have to pay to enable them to spy on us?

America wake up. While President Bush certainly deserves much of the criticism heaped on him, the truth is that the Democrat/socialist controlled Congress is every bit as much to blame for attacks upon our freedom, upon our economy and upon our very way of life.

Friends don't let friends vote Democrat.

Democrat party answer to high gas prices? More government control

It is very easy to say that while gas and diesel fuel prices continue to skyrocket, the Democrat/socialist controlled Congress continues to do nothing. This is actually not true. In the infinite wisdom that all liberals assume is their birthright, the Decomcrat/socialist controlled Congress has decided that the best answer is to nationalize the oil refineries [read more].

"We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market." - Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY)

It is almost impossible to believe that the liberals of the Democrat/socialist party have ever read the Constitution despite having taken a sacred oath to protect and defend the Constitution. It is, however, very easy to believe that once again their solution to a problem is more government control.

As of the end of May, at least 73% of the American people believe we should be allowed to drill for oil offshore now [read more]. I am certain that this number has, and will continue to grow as the price at the pump goes up. And since every consumer product at some point relies upon our transportation system, the price of just about everything, including our basic food supply, climbs rapidly.

Simple logic tells us that expanding the available supply will do more to control and lower fuel prices than any government clusterfrak. We are sitting upon huge offshore reserves as well as massive supplies in the ANWR and another estimated 4.3 BILLION barrels in the Bakken Formation. America has the oil resources needed to become independent of foreign interests and to protect our economy. So why aren't we already tapping these resources?

Finding viable alternative energy sources is certainly a laudable goal but realistically even if a magic solution were found today it would be at least 20 years before it could brought online sufficient to power our homes and factories. Remember folks, it isn't enough to have a new source, you also have to convert the existing systems to handle the new source and that will take time and a huge wad of cash.

Our needs are NOW, not 20 years down the road.

So what is the answer of the Democrat/socialist controlled Congress? Continue to ban drilling for our own oil and for the government to take over a privately owned industry.

"We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market." - Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY)

Not only is this completely contrary to every belief this country has been built upon, it also won't do a damn thing to help. Controlling the refineries will not increase the supply of crude coming into the refineries. Government control of the refineries will not result in a single additional drop of gas reaching the pump at your local gas station. All that will be achieved is an expansion of government control of yet another facet of our lives.

You also have to ask yourself what comes after nationalizing the refineries? More of the failed Jimmy Carter price controls? Gas rationing? What industry will be next to be taken away from it's rightful owners by the government - health care, the airlines, food production?

It is high time that we the people tell the Democrat/socialist controlled Congress that we want realistic, viable solutions to the problems NOW, that we are not willing to suffer for decades while they fiddle about like a bunch of demented sycophants.

The greatness of America did not come from the efforts of Congress but from the willingness of the people to tackle the difficult problems and find solutions that worked for the widest possible majority. We did not become a great nation by sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves and waiting for the government to make our lives better.

Say What?

We ran across this quote in the Patriot Post

“What they’ll say is, ‘Well it costs too much money,’ but you know what? It would cost, about... It—it—it would cost about the same as what we would spend... It... Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs us... (nervous laugh) All right. Okay. We’re going to... It... It would cost us about the same as it would cost for about—hold on one second. I can’t hear myself. But I’m glad you’re fired up, though. I’m glad.” - Barrack Hussein Obama

Now, if you have the slightest idea what the great orator was talking about, please let us know.

Political Pollution Floods The Airwaves, Again

Tis the season for where politicians, aka polpigs, kick things into high gear in their pursuit of a spot at the feeding trough. No venue will be safe from their promises, claims, lies, accusations and deceit. Print media. Television. Radio. Even the internet is not safe. You can run but you can't hide from Political Ads.

These fairy tales come in many flavors but as far as I am concerned none are as obnoxious as the "Tell So and So" ads. I don't know what these are officially categorized as so we'll stick with "Tell So and So" for our purposes.

You've all seen "Tell So and So" ads. A folksy sounding voice tells you how the target of the ad has done something evil and rotten and finishes with "Call Senator Blowhard and tell him that you are afraid for your children's future" or "Call Jim Jones and ask him who he really supports - big industry or the taxpayers". Rarely are these ads sponsored by the actual candidate. The sponsors are groups like the "Friends of Senator Noggin" or "Citizens Against Dirty Underwear" or "Friends of Teacher's Unions". In other words, political action groups or special interests.

It is bad enough that polpigs on the stump desperately avoid saying anything direct and to the point without having these various groups doing the dirty work for the candidate. This allows the candidate to disavow any knowledge of the ad and keep his or her dainty hands clean.

Thank goodness for the television remote control because I have decided that I am going to try my damnedest to avoid all of the "Tell So and So" ads this year. I am not going to call anyone or tell anyone anything touted by one of the "Tell So and So" ads. This won't stop these stupid ads but will help keep my blood pressure under control.

The Political Silly Season is bad enough without the constant hammering from every political candidate and cause known to man. Another summer filled with political rhetoric and not a single morsel of true information amongst all of the garbage. Heaven help us all and protect us from these fools and idiots. And keep fresh batteries in your remote controls.

It Doesn't Make Sense

Gasoline and food prices continue to skyrocket. Meanwhile the US Senate debates the Warner-Lieberman bill, a measure designed to imposes "a cap on the amount of greenhouse gases an industrial sector can release. Companies that exceed that cap could buy emission allowances from greener businesses in an open market."

"For refiners, the bill would act like a tax on carbon dioxide, a leading greenhouse gas released when fossil fuels are burned. The total price hit would reach 60 cents, the study predicts.

About 80 percent of that would be passed on to consumers."

Gasoline and food prices continue to skyrocket. Meanwhile, huge subsidies and government support programs for ethanol production continue despite the impact to food supplies and ground water.

Gasoline and food prices continue to skyrocket. Meanwhile our government urges foreign oil producers to increase production while refusing to allow our own damned oil industry to access and process our huge underground reserves.

Gasoline and food prices continue to skyrocket. Meanwhile us idiots in Minnesota will see our gas taxes increases two more times in 2008 (August 1 and October 1).

Well folks, we fell for all of the empty promises and look what it has gotten us. And now we have a different collection of liars promising the sky, "change you can believe in", free government (taxpayer provided) services and a life free of any risk or danger. The question is this : are we going to fall for this garbage again or are we going to kick the liberals out of office at all levels of government.

Use your brain. Use your common sense. Use your vote.

Open Letter to Senator Klobuchar

Dear Senator Klobuchar,

Thank you for your e-newsletter. I found the comments regarding your "Fighting for Consumer Relief at the Gas Pump, More comprehensive action needed to put consumers first" quite interesting. To quote:

"Klobuchar also supports measures that would pressure OPEC to increase oil production by giving the U.S. Attorney General authority to bring enforcement action against foreign governments that are colluding to set the price of oil. To address the nation’s long-term energy independence, Klobuchar has also said Congress should roll back the billions of dollars in tax giveaways that oil companies currently receive and invest the revenue in long-term solutions, including renewable, alternative fuels."

I am not sure what color the sky is in your part of the world but this is some of the most pie-in-the-sky, feel good rhetoric that I have heard in quite some time.

Even the most optimistic alternative energy "experts" acknowledge that it will take years, if not decades before enough alternative energy can be brought online to fuel our economy and to convert our existing infrastructure to use those alternative sources. The cost to consumers would run into the billions, if not trillions of dollars while over this period.

Suing foreign nationals and slapping the wrists of the oil companies amount to nothing more than a refusal to take a realistic look at the problems and will not result in a single penny of savings for our consumers nor one iota more of energy. About the only ones to benefit for these actions are the squadron of lawyers who would be put to work on these efforts.

America controls or has access to enough crude oil resources to provide for our needs for quite some time to come and certainly long enough for alternative energy sources to be identified, tested, and brought on line. Yet you continue to work against allowing Americans to develop these crude oil resources.

While the Communist Chinese government drills for oil off of our Gulf Coast, you advocate suing OPEC.

We urge you Senator to quit pandering to the minority and allow Americans to immediately pursue our crude oil resources. I am certain that the oil companies will happily match the campaign funds you receive from the eco-fringe.
