BDO Experiment: All Twitter, All of the Time

I have become fascinated with Twitter. Not sure how great it is, but I am willing to give it a try for a bit and I have decided to go "All in". Fold in the fact that Bearing Drift Ohio gets a very low number of daily hits (sigh) I am going to make Bearing Drift Ohio a Twitter Only destination for a bit.

The plan is simple: when you dial up BearingDriftOhio.com you will be sent to my Twitter Page. There you can read my updates, join twitter and comment by following and learn more about what I am doing. So instead of coming to Bearing Drift Ohio to read long thoughts, you can simply walk with me for a minute to hear an idea.

Now people who are not members of Twitter will still be able to read my quick posts, click on the links I post, etc.

I will be shifting this URL to my Twitter page on Wednesday, December 17, 2009.

Thoughts?

Bearing Drift Ohio now on Twitter


I was inspired and motivated by Matt at WMD to create a Twitter account. I have. I have also added the Twitter update on my sidebar!

Please, come follow me @BDOhio

Illinois Gov. Blagojevich Arrested: Where there is smoke….


Democrat Gov Blagojevich decided to put Obama's Senate seat up for sale... among othere crimes. Sure am glad there are no gubernatorial appointments pending in Ohio (?). Of course the entire cabinet has not been determined yet so... I personally do not understand the big deal. It is not like the Governor helped cover up an illegal access of data like Joe the Plumber...

What I find interesting is how Tony Rezko is intertwined with Gov. Blagojevich, President Elect Obama and so many others… but none of these people, or any of there activities are related. Right.....

Stay tuned because more is bound to come out including who is "Client Number 5"? Noticed how the Jesse Jackson Jr. camp has become VERY quiet?

Keith Olbermann’s Network is Staffed by Pros

You have to love the expert professionalism over at MSNBC. This shows why producers A) work off camera and B) most on air talent hates them.

Watch the anchor woman squirm and is too chicken shit to tell that jack ass off camera to shut up.
(Warning, adults using words that adults use)

Check Your FaceBook, Stupid

I do not have a Face Book account. I do have a LinkedIn account. I am an executive recruiter, so it is a great tool for business.

A lot of my friends talk up Face Book. I see it as a slightly mature version of My Space, which I think is a tween gathering site (for tweens and pedos, sadly). Today I saw yet another reason FaceBook is bad.

from The WASHINGTON POST
For a while there this afternoon, President-elect Barack Obama's immensely talented chief speechwriter, 27-year-old Jon Favreau, might have been pondering how to address that question [about any items online that could be embarrassing].

That's when some interesting photos of a recent party he attended -- including one where he's dancing with a life-sized cardboard cut-out of secretary of state-designate Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, and another where he's placed his hand on the cardboard former first lady's chest while a friend is offering her lips a beer -- popped up on Face Book for about two hours. The photos were quickly taken down -- along with every other photo Favreau had of himself on the popular social networking site, save for one profile headshot
.
Incoming Obama administration director of speechwriting Jon Favreau (L) and a friend pose with a cardboard cutout of incoming Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at a party. (Obtained by The Washington Post)

By the way, as an executive recruiter, yes, I do look around MySpace and Face Book as well as Google for candidates I interview. My client need to know if they are hiring someone who may embarrass (or lighten up) the office.

Obama’s Administration Causes Drunkenness


I have started a new drinking game. Every time Obama announces a new member of his administration of “Change” and they are a former member of the Clinton Administration, I drink.

I am so wasted… and it appears I will be for quite some time.

I know I am drunk, but did Webster’s redefine the word “Change”? I mean, I we have serious issues in America right now, so believe it or not, I am pulling for Obama to be successful, but already I have failed to see any change or new blood in Washington.

It Is A Simple Question

The Big Three in Detroit are asking you and Ito bail them out. The UAW Union was told it would need to make some consessions but just yesteday in a press conference claim they have made enough already.

So my question is simple: Whu do the Union Auto makers need bailed but Toyota and Honda don't?

The Meaning of Sports: Fathers and Sons

Ron Bennington of the Ron and Fez Show on Sirius-XM XM202 (and Sirius 197) is a big Phillies fan. During the World Series on their daily show there was a running joke that no one was allowed to actually talk about it. No callers, no one on the show, no one. Ron did not want to "jinx" it. It was a funny bit and a running joke, but apparently there was something really special about this win.

Now I am not an enormous fan of Baseball. The Cubs are my team and at best I watch the occasional game, the play offs and the Series, but the meaning of baseball is not lost on me. For so many, Baseball represents more than just the game. It represents a connection, a bond with someone special.

The day after the Series ended, Ron began what would become an off-the-cuff monologue about what the game means to him. Rarely are there serious moments on Ron and Fez, but when there are, it is worth it. Take 10 minutes and listen to what the game of baseball, the Phillies in particular, mean to this man. I think a lot of sons can relate in one way or another.

I am lucky. I have a great relationship with my father. We talk about a lot of things and are at that point in our lives where we are adult friends. As with any father-son relationship, it was not always like that. For us, even if there were rough patches, we had football. My family had season tickets to the Bengals so for many, many years we had a family event every other week during the fall and winter. You would be amazed how much a family can bond in a stadium of tens of thousands of people.

Listen to Ron talk about his dad.

Obama Supporters Unsure What To Live For Now

We all know some people who are afflicted with this condition.

Senator Sara Palin


It looks like Sen. Stevens of Alaska may win his seat again. The senate will kick him out, so that leaves an open seat. Unless I am wrong, the governor of Alaska get to appoint someone, right?

I have a recommendation for the Governor. She should appoint herself. How do you like them apples?

HOIST THE MAINSAIL!!!

JR Hoeft at the original Bearing Drift has called away orders. Orders I think we should all heed and Bearing Drift Ohio will keep this flag raised!

Gov. Strickland’s Thugs Being Investigated: Gee, I am shocked

Helen Jones-Kelley
As you will recall, the director of the Department of Job and Family Services, Helen Jones-Kelley abused her power to investigate Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, aka "Joe the Plumber." Joe was the guy who dared to question the Messiah, Barack Obama in his own driveway. Democrat and MAXED OUT DONOR TO OBAMA Jones-Kelly and the Strickland Administration just wouldn’t stand for that.

Joe’s files and information was looked into and as you recall, Gov. Strickland said that it was, “… not politically motivated.”

Really?

Well, yesterday Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland placed the director of the Department of Job and Family Services on paid leave today for possibly using a state computer and e-mail account for political fund-raising. Ah yes, suspended for illegal use of state equipment for fund raising, but the illegal snooping into Joe the Plumber? No, not that. Goes to show you which one is ok with Ted “Tony Soprano” Strickland.

So now that the election is over, Jones-Kelley is being investigated for political wrong doing… But by no coincidence prior to November 4, there was no political motivation.

Are we to believe that this suspension is non-punitive as well? The fact is, post election Strickland and his thugs want to do their best to keep this out of sight and out of mind until you forget about it. There is no need to brag about it anymore since their message was already sent loud and clear: Question a Democrat, and you will be punished.

It is sad that an African American would use intimidation in an attempt to conduct voter intimidation. Maybe she should look into her soul and talk to her older relatives and decide if her actions are any better than those of the past.

Obama Slams Nancy Reagan

Imagine for just one moment that a Republican made a joke about ANY Kennedy, or a Clinton, or any one of thier families.



But what we will hear? "Oh relax... it was just a joke."

Really? Had a talk show host or radio jock made a joke about Ted Kennedy, or anything like this about a Democrat, there would be calls for them to be fired, Olbermann would be pitching a fit and people would cry to boycott sponsors... But it was not a radio person. It was the next President of the United States who asked for a new civil tone and dignity in politics. Wow, between this comment and choosing Rohm "Republicans can go fuck themselves" Emanuel as COS (yes he said that in an interview in 2006), looks like we are off to a great start for "change". (sigh)

TRIVIA: Guess which board Emanuel has served on? If you guessed Freddie Mac, you are right. Funny how these folks all seem to be connected to this crisis they now claim to have the answers for, isn’t it?

More Predictions: Obama Breaks Promises, But Of Course, Not His Fault

Another prediction here. Eventually Obama will come out and say things are "So bad, worse than he thought" that he is not going to be able to keep so many of his promises, including his tax cut promises.

Golly gee... who – saw – that- coming?

What does this mean? He either had no real clue while he was running, or he lied to get elected.

Duh, it’s both. But watch the beyond blind loyalty to the Messiah as he will do nothing he promises (Tax cuts, brings home ALL of the troops in Iraq in 90 days, and so much more). Will he be called a liar? No, of course not. His ‘followers’ will blame everyone (mainly Bush) for EVERY promise Obama breaks.

Prediction: Obama Will Have To Be Told To Back Off

For the record, I am predicting today that President-Elect Obama will try to be the President before January 20th. He and his people will make the argument that the people have spoken and although not sworn in, his policies and decisions should trump those of the current administration. Just wait.

Sadly, this will not be driven by a sense of duty , but instead by arrogance and a sense of immaculate entitlement. When you are told that you are “The One” for so long, you begin to believe it.

What Now for the GOP and Conservatives

Anyone who knows me knows that I am proud "South Park Conservative". I fear that the powers that be will try to slam the GOP back to a far religious-right party in response to this loss. Those same people will fail to admit that the loss is tied more to George Bush than to anything else, period.

Fiscal conservatism and self reliance is the key, NOT going after music, books, gays and bowing to demands from the religious right.

I will fight any movement to the extreme social right. I will fight anyone who uses this election as some sort of 'proof' or mandate that we need to move socially to the right. I actually saw a few conservative blogs posting a cartoon that shows a tent and it reads "Time to shrink it." That saddens me.

These people look at this loss and say "it is because we have moved from religious right values" but fail to admit that as a brand we were hurt are fooling themselves and are simply going for a power grab. George Bush is to the GOP brand what rear end collision explosions were to the Pinto. A hard pill to swallow but until we do, we will keep chasing our big government, paranoid cronyism, judgmental tails.

Trust me; the ultra right wing of the party is poised to take over. These are those who would rather scream and yell at a gay man than save our economy our build communities. We know who they are and before you hand them the keys, remember, they are the ones who were in charge and created this slow fused decay of the party.

In the coming days I will begin to “think out loud” here on Bearing Drift Ohio and explain what I believe and what I will fight for as a Conservative. Some stances may be overly obvious but some might surprise you. No matter what, I think it is time for the many voices of Conservatism to speak out before they are over powered by those who wish to silence dissent in the GOP.

For now there are two great posts on the Original Bearing Drift by JR Hoeft and Jason Kenney that are worth reading.

Obama Talks About the need for the “Redistribution of Wealth”

When those on the right say that Obama is all about Wealth Redistribution, it is called scare tactics. When the candidate himself says it... well, they will spin it some how, I am sure. One of the Liberal talking heads said we should not consider this interview because he said this before he thought of running for President. Uh, what?

I guess when your experience is as limited as Obama's is, 2001 does seem like a lifetime ago.

"You know if you look at the victories and the failures of the Civil Rights movement and its litigation strategy in the Court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I would be okay. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical, it didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and the Warren Court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties says what the states can’t do to you, says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf and that hasn’t shifted. And one of the I think the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court focused I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change and in some ways we still suffer from that." – Barack Obama

Obama Halloween Plan

Brilliant Point Made About Ohio

A friend of mine just emailed me this BRILLIANT point
In Ohio we can't use government computers to check the ID of voters, but we can use them to investigate the personal history of someone in Toledo who asks Obama a revealing question.
This is just a taste of our future.

Scary but true

Something To Think About

A friend of mine emailed me this. Thought it was VERY telling of America today.

There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Professor noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist government.

In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, 'Do you know how to catch wild pigs?'

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke. 'You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free corn When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat; you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America . The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms - just a little at a time.

One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free Lunch! A politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do yourself.

If you see all of this wonderful government 'help' is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to share this with your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will probably find some way to justify why this post is wrong, but God help you when the gate slams shut!

'A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.'
Thomas Jefferson

McCain Has Never Asked For an Earmark

You know that pork barrel money that drains the treasury. And you know with so few Senators who can claim this, you would think the media would talk about it… Oh wait, that’s right. The media onlpy praises the Political Messiah, St. Barack.

Obama, Reid, Pelosi and Al Franken Running this Country? Think about it

Yes. That is what they want; a government with absolutely no checks and balances. A filibuster proof Senate for the Democrats and a Congress where Pelosi of San Francisco calls the shots for all of us. And to head this up, a rubber stamp President Obama to do whatever they tell him to do. They know this; even Hillary Clinton is being open about it in her ad for Comedian Al Franken’s run for Senate

When you vote, you are not simply choosing a local Congressman or Senator, or even a stand along President. This year you are choosing whether or not to give the Democrats unchecked and complete control. If you don’t like how Congress has run for the past two years, imagine them with zero checks.

Add to this a media that has proven that their lust for Obama prevents them from questioning him (and is punished if they dare ask hard questions), and a clear message that if any private citizen questions the "Political Messiah" they will be 'watched' and you have a bright future for America(?)

McCain-Obama Dance Off

The debates were a waste of time. We should have just done this


Unbelievable McCain Vs. Obama Dance-Off

Columbus Dispatch Endorses McCain


In a move that was a pleasant surprise to me, the Columbus Dispatch endorsed Sen. McCain for President. They do so, not for partisan reasons and not for personal political gain. They seemed to approach this decision with this thing called “logic” and “reason”. An often talked about but rarely followed method for editorial boards, the Dispatch made their case pretty simple.

"Nor does it seem likely that a man who has traveled in the left lane of American politics for his entire adult life really is the bipartisan centrist that he claims to be. And with Democrats already in control of the U.S. House and Senate -- and the possibility that they might gain a filibuster-proof majority in the next Senate -- there would be little to check the inevitable excesses of one-party rule if a Democrat wins the White House…

...A return to majority status is likely to unleash pent-up demand to enact a Democratic wish list of new and expensive social programs when the nation can't afford the ones it has. Given his party-line voting record in the Senate, there is no indication that Obama is able or willing to stand against such an onslaught."

And
"At a time when the nation faces serious problems, including international economic turmoil, immigration, health care, war in Afghanistan, nation-building in Iraq and foreign-policy challenges from the Middle East, Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela, the president should have an extensive resume and long experience in grappling with tough decisions. Few new presidents have faced an assignment as tough as the one facing the winner of the November election."

McCain-Palin Rally in Virginia Beach

As many know, I lived in Virginia Beach for over seven years while on active duty in the Navy. My friend Jim at the Original Bearing Drift attended the McCain-Palin rally today and I wanted to cross post his pictures from that event.

McCain Supporters Angry? They Should Be More Like Liberals

All we have (predictably) heard this week is how “angry” McCain supporters are and how American should be afraid of them. Hell, even Rep. Lewis basically called McCain and his supporters separatists. Well, I am not sure a few people standing up at rallies and yelling is scary, but if MSNBC and CNN say so, then it must be true.

So what should we do? How can we better ourselves? How does one conduct themselves in a calm, rational manner to show support of their candidate in an enlightened, civil and intellectual manner? Look to the bastion of liberal enlightenment, of course: New York City. Here is how some Obama supporters calmly showed that they disagreed with McCain supporters.

And So It Begins

Muslims should take advantage of the global financial crisis to build an economic system compatible with Islamic principles, influential Sunni cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi said on Sunday. (source)


This is a call to arms to attack the US and its economy... again

A Couple of Observations

First off, Newsweek’s polls are almost always ignored but now that it shows Obama way ahead, EVERYONE is talking about. They do so in the face of the fact that no other legitimate poll is even cloise to Newsweek’s.

Second, when Republican policies are to blame, the ranting, raving and hate mongering is deafening. When it is Democrats at fault, say with this sub-prime cause of this economic crisis, we hear, “Oh there is plenty of blame to go around”. What they are saying is, “Don’t worry about whose fault it is… Oh and let those people hold hearings on anyone but themselves.”

Registration Numbers Don’t Pass Smell Taste

File this under “Notice how this ‘Fact’ was slipped by us”, Does this even make sense?

The Columbus Dispatch reports
Ohio adds 665,949, to nearly 8.2 million
Wednesday, October 8, 2008
By Mark Niquette

A record number of Ohioans are registered to vote in the Nov. 4 election, for which officials expect record voter turnout because of the hard-fought presidential race. Nearly 8.2 million people are on the voter rolls in Ohio, including 665,949 added this year.

That means 94 percent of eligible voters in Ohio are registered, based on U.S. Census Bureau estimates. Brunner predicts turnout of 80 percent, which would mean 6.5 million Ohioans casting ballots. By comparison, 5.7 million voted in the 2004 presidential election.
94 percent? Are we to really believe that in a state where less than half of registered voters actually vote, this percentage of people are registered? Now this percentage is simply the number of registrations compared to the eligible population.

Between ACORN’s alleged fraudulent registrations numbering in the tens of thousands and the Ohio Secretary of State denying any county the ability to validate the new registrations, how can we really believe this line from the Dispatch, passed off as fact?

Remember, this is not the number of validated registrations. This is simply the number of people registered (no matter how many times) divided by the total population eligible.

To not question the 94 percent number means that either The Dispatch is a part of this fraudulent myth or simply staffed by lemmings who don’t dare question the party they blindly follow... Or are just bad journalists.

Thoughts?

Mary Jo Kilroy, Socialist Propagandist (roll the tape)

Democrats never cease to amaze me. They love playing a ‘gotcha game’ but think they are immune to their past and the truth holding them accountable. From the files of "I am a big fat liar" comes this gem from Red State.
Kilroy attacked Stivers for once working as a lobbyist for Bank One. Stivers responded that Kilroy ran a socialist newspaper. The Kilroy campaign shot back, claiming that Kilroy won an award for "excellent journalism" and that Stivers is lying about Kilroy's time at the Free Press, the socialist newspaper Kilroy worked at.
But, ladies and gentlemen, I have found something far more damning about Mary Jo Kilroy.

Not only did Mary Jo Kilroy actively run the far left Free Press newspaper, she participated in a French socialist documentary sympathetically chronicling the struggle of the far left in America
.
Mary Jo is at time :58

ABC News Is Stifling Conservative User Comments

Darke Blog (one of my favorite Ohio Blogs) has a very interesting post in which he demonstrates how ABC is deleting conservative comments.
After I posted this comment, I noticed another commenter included the same link as me. I went back to look at the reactions to both comments - and one at a time - they were both pulled from the comments. My original comment was time-stamped 7:42:49 PM - and as you can see below there is no remaining comment for that time. It was removed.

What Caused The Economic Crisis: Watch and Comment

It’s long (10 minutes) But Worth Watching. Comments?

Fat Cats or Stupid Borrowers

So many people are against the $700 Billion ‘Bail Out’ because they do not want to help Wall Street 'Fat Cats' who they said caused this.

Is this outrage well placed?

This crisis is because of bad loans, deflated home values and under-valued mortgages. Fat Cats? Where is the outrage and blame of those who had no business taking loans they could not afford at rates that doubled after a short amount of time? Fat Cats? No. The bail out is because of folks who had a household income of $50k thought they were ‘entitled’ to a loan of $350k for a house bought on terms only an idiot would agree to. I suppose these people put flat screens on lay-away or LOVE stores like USA Discounters. Can’t afford it? No problem!

The same ideology that told you that everyone is entitled to a house regardless of their ability to pay for it, is now blaming the very industry they pushed and provided incentives to make these bad loans happen. Now obviously there are exceptions, some opportunistic and criminal mortgage scams, but I am talking about the majority of the loans.

So who loses in this? People like me who got a traditional 30-year fixed rate mortgage that I could afford based on the over prime good credit I earned and protected all of my life.

Who wins? People who were irresponsible with a sense of entitlement who this bail out with save.

So what have we learned? Buy whatever you want, comrades. Your government will save you.

So if you know anyone who has a mortgage for a house you know they could not afford, tell them 'thank you.' Thank you for the crisis.

Biden Admits His Own Campaign’s Tone is Bad; Oh and he is sorry.

During an interview with CBS' Katie Couric, VP Candidate Sen. Joe Biden says about his attack ads, “didn't know we did it, and if I'd had anything to do with it, we would have never done it.”

Uh, so, who is running the campaign? Obviously not Joe Biden, but what about Sen. Obama? Is Biden’s new job to play the role of “apologetic” Ike Turner? “I am sorry, Baby. I’ll never do it again... I didn’t mean it

And then I think we all know what happens next... Lather, Rinse, Repeat... Attack, Apologize, Repeat. Change we can believe in?

Palin’s Never Delivered Speech at UN Protest of Iran

Gov. Sarah Palin was originally scheduled to appear at the protest in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza today toprotest of the UN appearance of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Her appearence was cancelled when Hillary Clinton aides complained. Clinton was invited as well and instead of standing together as a sign of American Unity, Clinton aides chose to make it a partisan political issue (of course).

Below is the text of the speech Gov. Palin was to give (source).
I am honored to be with you and with leaders from across this great country - leaders from different faiths and political parties united in a single voice of outrage.

Tomorrow, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come to New York - to the heart of what he calls the Great Satan - and speak freely in this, a country whose demise he has called for.

Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator's intentions and to call for action to thwart him.
He must be stopped.

The world must awake to the threat this man poses to all of us. Ahmadinejad denies that the Holocaust ever took place. He dreams of being an agent in a "Final Solution" - the elimination of the Jewish people. He has called Israel a "stinking corpse" that is "on its way to annihilation."

Such talk cannot be dismissed as the ravings of a madman -not when Iran just this summer tested long-range Shahab-3 missiles capable of striking Tel Aviv, not when the Iranian nuclear program is nearing completion, and not when Iran sponsors terrorists that threaten and kill innocent people around the world.

The Iranian government wants nuclear weapons. The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Iran is running at least 3,800 centrifuges and that its uranium enrichment capacity is rapidly improving. According to news reports, U.S. intelligence agencies believe the Iranians may have enough nuclear material to produce a bomb within a year.

The world has condemned these activities. The United Nations Security Council has demanded that Iran suspend its illegal nuclear enrichment activities. It has levied three rounds of sanctions. How has Ahmadinejad responded? With the declaration that the "Iranian nation would not retreat one iota" from its nuclear program.

So, what should we do about this growing threat? First, we must succeed in Iraq. If we fail there, it will jeopardize the democracy the Iraqis have worked so hard to build, and empower the extremists in neighboring Iran. Iran has armed and trained terrorists who have killed our soldiers in Iraq, and it is Iran that would benefit from an American defeat in Iraq.

If we retreat without leaving a stable Iraq, Iran's nuclear ambitions will be bolstered. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons ? they could share them tomorrow with the terrorists they finance, arm, and train today. Iranian nuclear weapons would set off a dangerous regional nuclear arms race that would make all of us less safe.

But Iran is not only a regional threat; it threatens the entire world. It is the no. 1 state sponsor of terrorism. It sponsors the world's most vicious terrorist groups, Hamas and Hezbollah. Together, Iran and its terrorists are responsible for the deaths of Americans in Lebanon in the 1980s, in Saudi Arabia in the 1990s, and in Iraq today. They have murdered Iraqis, Lebanese, Palestinians, and other Muslims who have resisted Iran's desire to dominate the region. They have persecuted countless people simply because they are Jewish.

Iran is responsible for attacks not only on Israelis, but on Jews living as far away as Argentina. Anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial are part of Iran's official ideology and murder is part of its official policy. Not even Iranian citizens are safe from their government's threat to those who want to live, work, and worship in peace. Politically-motivated abductions, torture, death by stoning, flogging, and amputations are just some of its state-sanctioned punishments.

It is said that the measure of a country is the treatment of its most vulnerable citizens. By that standard, the Iranian government is both oppressive and barbaric. Under Ahmadinejad's rule, Iranian women are some of the most vulnerable citizens.

If an Iranian woman shows too much hair in public, she risks being beaten or killed. If she walks down a public street in clothing that violates the state dress code, she could be arrested.

But in the face of this harsh regime, the Iranian women have shown courage. Despite threats to their lives and their families, Iranian women have sought better treatment through the "One Million Signatures Campaign Demanding Changes to Discriminatory Laws." The authorities have reacted with predictable barbarism. Last year, women's rights activist Delaram Ali was sentenced to 20 lashes and 10 months in prison for committing the crime of "propaganda against the system." After international protests, the judiciary reduced her sentence to "only" 10 lashes and 36 months in prison and then temporarily suspended her sentence. She still faces the threat of imprisonment.

Earlier this year, Senator Clinton said that "Iran is seeking nuclear weapons, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps is in the forefront of that" effort. Senator Clinton argued that part of our response must include stronger sanctions, including the designation of the IRGC as a terrorist organization. John McCain and I could not agree more.

Senator Clinton understands the nature of this threat and what we must do to confront it. This is an issue that should unite all Americans. Iran should not be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. Period. And in a single voice, we must be loud enough for the whole world to hear: Stop Iran!
Only by working together, across national, religious, and political differences, can we alter this regime's dangerous behavior. Iran has many vulnerabilities, including a regime weakened by sanctions and a population eager to embrace opportunities with the West. We must increase economic pressure to change Iran's behavior.

Tomorrow, Ahmadinejad will come to New York. On our soil, he will exercise the right of freedom of speech - a right he denies his own people. He will share his hateful agenda with the world. Our task is to focus the world on what can be done to stop him.

We must rally the world to press for truly tough sanctions at the U.N. or with our allies if Iran's allies continue to block action in the U.N. We must start with restrictions on Iran's refined petroleum imports. We must reduce our dependency on foreign oil to weaken Iran's economic influence.
We must target the regime's assets abroad; bank accounts, investments, and trading partners.

President Ahmadinejad should be held accountable for inciting genocide, a crime under international law.

We must sanction Iran's Central Bank and the Revolutionary Guard Corps -which no one should doubt is a terrorist organization. Together, we can stop Iran's nuclear program.

Senator McCain has made a solemn commitment that I strongly endorse: Never again will we risk another Holocaust. And this is not a wish, a request, or a plea to Israel's enemies. This is a promise that the United States and Israel will honor, against any enemy who cares to test us. It is John McCain's promise and it is my promise.

Thank you.

Report: 60,000 Come See Gov. Palin

The "Chosen One’s" campaign used to love citing the numbers of people who would attend his appearance as proof he was "Who we were waiting for." If this is true, maybe people were actually waiting for Gov. Sarah Palin.
"Sa-Rah! Sa-Rah!" they chanted at every mention of her name, applauding loudly and waiving tiny American flags that were distributed -- along with free water bottles -- by local volunteers. The fire chief estimated the crowd at 60,000. (Source)

This Rally was held at a large planned community in Florida. Hey Joe, where was this rally?



Thanks, Joe. I’ll buy the next round

Democrats: Vote For Obama, or You Are an un-American Racist

If you do not vote for Obama, you must not like Black people. If you are a Republican, then I guess you get a pass. If you are a Democrat (you know, the group that almost half voted AGAINST Obama) then you are a racists.
Monday afternoon, state Representatives Bob Hagan of Youngstown and Tom Letson of Warren met with reporters.
They argue many voters who call themselves "Democrats" or "Independents", but won't vote for Obama, have only one excuse, with Letson saying, "I would say that a lot of it is they're not going to vote for 'the black guy'".
Hagan called the issue "unpatriotic," adding those not willing to vote for Obama need "to face that fact. That that's not acceptable in America."
(source)
Oh, and if, heaven forbid, you do not bow to the "Chosen One" you are un-American as well.
So what is there point? There point is simply tow parts.

First is to play the race card in order to snap Democrats in line and to do what they are told (Do not dare defy the Chosen One). Secondly they are setting it up so that if and when Obama loses, they can blame racism, not an inexperienced first term Senator that the DNC pushed past Hillary Clinton... You know, the one who actually won the primaries.

Now don’t get me wrong. I am glad that the primary was not given to Hillary, but to act as if the Democratic Party has always been behind Obama (or is totally now) is foolish and just plain stupid… as was the decision to ignore almost half of the Democratic party and NOT chose Clinton as the VP running mate.

Cocaine Addict, Media Obsessed, Convicted Drunk Driving, Bad Movie Making, Never Voted Before, Uneducated Hollywood Whore Has an Opinion


Lindsay Lohan, AKA Hollywood’s town bike (because everyone gets a ride) decided that her opinion about Gov. Sarah Palin should be heard. She posted some brilliant [sarcasm] points on her blog. Now of course she is entitled to her own opinion as we all are, but not all of us have publicists that put out a press release calling the media’s attention to our blog when we post. So, since she feels everyone should read her drivel, we should give it its due. And why not, she stayed sober long enough to write it (that is why it is so short).

Among the other choice and intellectual comments she made was this gem:
"I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States, only 4 years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor, which is probably all she is qualified to be."
This coming from an actress whose last "hit" involved her, the car she was driving and a fifth of vodka. This petry dish of VD sure is rich to pass career jusdgement on anyone.

But, as with all Holywood brain trsusts, she grunts, "Obama Good... Change, blah blah blah" and then I am shocked the usual McCain age joke is not thrown in there.

Between the likes of this loose lipped* darling, Matt Damon and others, something has occurred to me... these hoilywood eleites are REAL scared of Sarah Plain. I do noth think the are scared of her, but that he presence may in fact ruin the "Chosen One's" chance at winning. Hmm, maybe most of the Actors will vote this time (remember, until 2004 Ben Afflec, for example had voted once in his life).

It amazes me that these people are afraid of a Governor that has more executive experience than their Candidate at the head of a ticket. How dare anyone question the Messiah, right?

*yes, I meant it to be a tasteless joke. Thank you for getting it

UPDATE: Looks like that the Obama Camp is just like a movie studio... They know Lohan is no good for business as well.
Chicago Sun-Times
Apparently, LiLo was interested in becoming very involved in the Democratic ticket's bid for the White House -- even offering to host a series of events appealing to younger voters.

However, a top source in the Barack Obama team tells me the actress ''is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us.''
This Hollywood joke actually believed the Obama people would want her? Ha ha.

If The Democratic Congress Can’t Do Anything, How Can Obama Help?

Some simple question: If the Democratic led Congress can not do anything and continues to fail, how does putting a Democratic freshmen member of that Senate and his rubber stamp for his party going to make it better?

Has Obama ever voted outside of the Democrats?

Did you ever stop to think that this just might be why the Democratic leadership pushed for Obama to win the primaries? Maybe, just maybe, he would be more obedient to Pelosi and Reid.

Another Election Year, Another Batch Of “Enlightened” Professors Trying to Indoctrinate

Here we go again. Another college professor using their classroom and authoriryt to push liberals views and doing so in a setting where students are forced to listen.
DENVER (CBS4) - Metro State College is investigating a professor who asked students to write an essay critical of Republican vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin. One student said the instructor singled out Republican students in the class and allowed others to ridicule them.

Every election cycle we go through this. "Enlightened" professors believe it is their job to indoctrinate students into the liberal world. Why is this such a shame? Because teachers are authority figures and they can play God with students’ futures.

No shock to anyone, these "open minded" sorts of people do not like being questioned and believe their way of thinking is the only way. Ironic, egomaniacal and sociopathic I believe.

You never seem to hear about Conservative professors doing this sort of thing, do you?

Why Aren't Liberals Honest About How The Like Abortion?

Too much of a bother and it is not like tens of thousands of families want to adopt anyway.  Thank goodness liberals like abortion!
A great question was asked of a Planned Parenthood consultant today on Fox. The question was, if Barack Obama is ok with abortion, why doesn't he just come out and say that abortions are ok?

The consultant stuttered and said that this was an "over simplification" and on and on about how it is about the woman's right to chose. Yes, chose an abortion, so why not say that?

Notice how pro-abortionists never are willing to say (in public) that abortions are ok and a good thing. Why? Because they know it is murder and people don't generally like it. They cloud the issue and make it about "choice".... But a choice to do what? Abort a baby.

So why aren't Liberals honest? Why are they too chicken shit to just say they are ok with abortion... they like abortion and they see it as a legitimate option?

Their new smoke screen is their new "safer and less often" branding tag line, but still, they want abortion to be readily available because they are ok with abortion. So why not just say they are for abortions, period?

On A Very Special Episode of a Tween Drama

Hillary Clinton won't show her support for the Jewish Community because Sarah Palin will be there?!?!
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has canceled an appearance at a New York rally next week after organizers blindsided her by inviting Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, aides to the senator said Tuesday.
Several American Jewish groups plan a major rally outside the United Nations on Sept. 22 to protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
...
Clinton aides were furious. They first learned of the plan to have both Clinton and Palin appear when informed by reporters. (SOURCE)

I swear... What middle school is Hillary Clinton attending? So Hillary won't go to a party if Sarah is there? Like, yeah, OMG. I wonder if Hillary texted her BFF about it... Like, yeah, like, what a lame-o. Like, I Know!

Well at Least For $28k You Get A Show… Actually No.

Media Observations And Stuff I shouldn’t Care About

Life is not all Politics. Ok, maybe it is, but another obsession of mine is the media, entertainment and other distractions. Here are some quick observations:

- Those of us that were against the Sirius/XM merger were told it would be good for the stock holders and listeners alike. Before the merger XM was trading around 5 bucks. Each XM stock was awarded 4 new Sirius/XM shares. The result? It is trading around 74 cents today, some channels are on the chopping block and many XM exclusive content has not been resigned yet. Oh, and the CEO, Mel Karmizan is talking about increasing the commercials on the channels. Damn, I hate being right so much.

- “Tyra [Banks] announced that this season is going to be about exposing the truth… and then kept her weave on the entire episode” –Joel McHale, The Soup

- Why does the media care what celebrities think about politics only every four years, but never demand we get out $10 back for the crap they make EVERY year?

- I wish the Bengals Chad Johnson spent as much time practicing as he did appealing the NFL to recognize his new name. His new name? Chad GuyWhoCan’tCatchTheDamnBall. See if that fits on your jersey.

- Is it just me or is Anderson Cooper of CNN becoming more of a celebrity than a journalist?

- The More successful Dane Cook gets, the less funnier he is.

- After the Lehman Brothers scare, I called my broker to check my investments… and when I say broker, I mean me, and when I say investments I mean I checked to see that I still had cash hidden under my mattress.

- Somewhat related, why do I hate TV pitch Man Billy Mays, but have become a fan of Mad Money’s Jim Cramer?

Money Making Conspiracy?

No houses have power but all stores and fast food joints less than a mile away do.

If I were into conspiracies I would think there was something fishy about this.

One of those stores open with power is Wal Mart and you know they control everything :-) well according to the neo- hippies.

:-)

The Day After

There is still no power in Central Ohio including here at home in Powell. The new worry is all of the food in my fridge. I am basically writing that food off. I bought a new fridge from HH Gregg a couple of months ago and in the additional warrentee I bought there is supposed to be a $250 food insurance plan for sitiations like this. We will see if it is honored and how much of a pain in the a** it is. More to come.

I am able to post via email (smart phone) but not able to post pictures. Later today I will venture out in search of WiFi to do a better post with pictures. Of those I want to post are some pics of the great folks around here who all came out to help each other.

The power comany (AEP) is telling the radio stations that it could be a week until power is restored.

As bad as it is here, and other than the annoyance of no power it is not THAT bad, I can only imagine the hell the people in Texas went through and are going through. I feel for them.

If you are reading this, please comment. Do you have power? Did you have damage? Share your story.

BTW if there are spelling errors, please excuse me. I am typing on a small Palm Centro keyboard with no spell check.

Community First

Here in Powell the winds were pretty strong. We lost power at 4:00 and two trees came crashing down in my yard.

Some guy came to my door and said a makeshift army of folks and some chain saws are around... Did I want their help.

I did and before I knew it over a dozen of people helped clear my lawn.

When we were done, we headed down the street and cleared dozens of trees.

Thanks guys! Community first.

Radical Islam Documentary In Today’s Paper


As I leafed through today’s Columbus Dispatch, I found a one hour DVD version of the documentary "Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West". I have seen trailers for this documentary online before. The makers of Obsession describe their documentary:
"This award-winning documentary is an expose of Radical Islam. Obsession provides the facts and historical perspectives needed to understand the extent and magnitude of the global conflict with Radical Islam. Using footage from Arabic T.V. rarely seen in the West and interviews with former terrorists, Obsession depicts suicide bomber initiations, secret jihad meetings, indoctrination of young children, and private celebrations of 9/11. Islamic politics are viewed from an angle usually unseen by Western audiences. The West’s inability to accurately assess and evaluate the current global threat is shown".
I have started to watch this extended sample and it is well made. It is important to understand, as they state in the beginning, that this is not a movie about the everyday, average Muslim. This movie is about the radicals who high jacked the religion for violent and political reasons. Every religion seems to have those who bastardize their teachings. So many people were slaughtered during the Crusades in the name of Christianity, for example.

So what are your thoughts? Did you get a DVD in your paper? Will you watch it? Have you? What are your thoughts?

This is a pretty aggressive marketing plan (to say nothing of expensive). On the card stock the DVD is attached to, they list all of the newspapers they have done this in. I can not seem to figure out a pattern. Can you? Is there one?

Is The Acting AG Acting On the Behalf of Cordray?

The other day, Attorney General Candidate Richard Cordray (D) quipped about Republican candidate Mike Crites,
"For the past 15 years he has been sitting on the sidelines of public service."
Sidelines? Really?

Crites is a retired Navy Captain, who has served overseas as well as a Commanding Officer of multiple units, led a school board, has served as a United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, a prosecutor for Delaware and Allen Counties and city prosecutor for Lima, Ohio and has served at the chairman of many organizations. Additionally he has tow daughters and two son-in-laws serving on active duty and supports them. Now if this is "Sitting on the sideline", then being a "Community Organizer" is simply staying home.

To respond to this insulting and ridiculous charge by Cordray, Crites called for a press conference that took place this morning for 10 a.m.

Absent? The Columbus Dispatch (Who ran the Crites quote for him) and the AP.

The reason? The Acting AG, Nancy Rogers called a press conference this morning... at 10 am.

Now I am sure this a coincidence, right? Because in an election to replace a disgraced Democrat who embarrassed himself and the office of Attorney General, the acting (Democrat) A.G. would never think to run defense or schedule a press conference at a certain time in order to help her party’s candidate? Right? One has to wonder.

During the press conference Crites said,
"Richard Cordray apparently believes that there's only one kind of "public service" - the "run-for-office-and-get-your-name-in-the-news. But the millions of American veterans and their families know that public service means much more. The lowliest private in a desolate outpost is doing public service that is every bit as important - perhaps even more so - than the posturing politicians back home."
On a side note, as a veteran, I am getting pretty tired of Democrats who discount military service as not being service at all, or at least not good enough for them. Some of us were too busy wearing the uniform to run for office after office after office or to make fancy speeches... Or put out 200 press releases in 17 months to get out names in the media... to prepare to run for yet another office.

Shame on you, Mr. Cordray.

Bill Maher Says What Blitzer Can’t… But wish he could

Just before 6:00pm on CNN's "Situation Room" before interviewing HBO’s Bill Maher, CNN's Wolf Blizter said that HBO is a "Corporate cousin" of CNN or a sister network since they are both owned my Time-Warner. Bill Maher's comment in response seemed like an inside joke... Or an established fact about CNN

Bill Maher "I like to think of you as the "Brother Network" since we are supporting the brother for president"

Wolf Blitzer "Uh, uh"

Can you imagine if a conservative had called Obama as "A Brother"? Holly crap. People would go nuts... and demand they be fired (because that is what fake outrage Politically Correct people do.)

Another gem
Bill Maher "I am not against Sarah Palin because she is from a small town. I am against her because she has a small mind."

Wolf Blitzer [silence]
We are used to attention grabbing “shock host” sort of comments… A lot like a child who needs Daddy’s attention, but when it is done on a NEWS program, maybe the host should temper it or say it is tasteless… unless you like what you hear.

You are in the ass hat room.

Biden On Meet The Press


Sen. Joe Biden was on Meet The Pres this morning. While there was a lot of information discussed and a lot that could be written about, two parts stuck me.

The first point is ironic. The discussion was how he thought best to solve the problems in Iraq. Now to Sen. Biden’s credit, while he criticizes Bush and McCain, unlike Obama he actually HAS some ideas, whether you agree with him or not. Normally Obama just says “Bush Bad… McCain Bad… Surge no good.” Biden was explaining his thoughts about how philosophically a successful country would work. His point was that you must have a central government but not over powering to the local areas. He said that it must not be a top down way to govern. Local areas and provinces should be empowered, not a large central government imposing everything. Coming from a U.S. Liberal, I found this ironic. Wish he felt that way about his own country.

The second is simple. It is, sadly, what I consider to be the Obamanization of Joe Biden. Although I disagree with a lot of what he thinks, I have always respected him for being straight forward and his own man. He has been confident, but never overly cocky. Now, it seems, he has fallen into the Obama “Chosen one” school of thought.
Tom Brokaw: “Five years from now do you think Iraq will have relative stability and Democratic principles in the central government?”

Joe Biden: “If there is an Obama-Biden administration, yeah.”
Only they can save Iraq, folks. The last Joe that guaranteed a win that arrogantly was Joe Namath. He and the Jets won. Was this Joe a little too arrogant?

Palin's Greatest Hits From Her Speech

More History This Election Season?

No, but a funny Nightline Blooper none the less. Thanks Terry for the chuckle.

Obama Goes to Fox News Trying to Overshadow McCain


The night Sen. Obama accepted his nomination the only appearance Sen. McCain made was an ad congratulating Obama on his historic night. But the night Sen. McCain accepts his party's nomination it is being reported that Obama will appear on the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News... RIGHT before McCain's speech.

No good deed goes unpunished. As I know it a miracle that the Apostle Obama will appear on Fox News, make no mistake that part of his agreement was to do so only if he could the night of McCain's speech. Class act, Sen. Obama... but not surprising. I would panic too if I gave a speech to a stadium of 80,000 people and it dropped off the radar less than 24 hours later.

Between this stunt and the coordinated effort to attack, slander and push Gov. Palin off of the ticket, the Obama folks seem to be in a panic.

Media Hates Palin: Just another reason to LOVE her

This is amazing, Reports are circulating that Dem operatives have released Gov. Palin’s social security number and that their goal is to push her off the ticket “by next week”.

Helping them is the media. One only has to look to one of the most popular magazines that targets women (owned by the same people who own Rolling Stone… LARGE contributors to Obama), US Magazine.

....


Notice the subtle blatant branding of Palin? What lies?!?!?!?

Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman of ConservativeHQ.com said:
“A critical rule in politics is: Define or be defined. Fairly or unfairly, Dan Quayle’s image was set within days of his selection as a candidate for vice president, and, forever after, the media sought out evidence that fit in with that pre-conceived image.

“Liberal Democrats are working quickly to Quayle-ize her. They are downplaying her experience and expertise, and trying to define her as ‘just a little housewife from Alaska.’ And, with the help of their friends in the media, they will get away with it – if the Republicans let them."


He is right

Where is the outrage? Where are the calls from the left for calm? Can you imagine if ONE single Democrat was even LOOKED at wrong, to say nothing of physically ATTACKED in Denver? Can you imagine the enormous outcry from Obama fans the media?!?!? In this case, it is an “oh, by the way” story.

The Left Do What They Do Best: Smear… and stare at 16-year-old girls’ bodies

In the past 24 hours, the left have gone beyond their usual lying, sick selves. Allen Colmes of Fox News wonders if Gov. Palin caused her child's downs syndrome (he took the post down, but not before a screen shot was snagged), CNN's John Roberts openly wondered if Gov Palin was a fit mother to care for the child and the fine folks at Daily Kos accuse Gov. Palin's 16-year-old daughter of being the mother of the baby.


The latter is the worst. The post that throws this rumor out there spends an awful lot of time examining pictures of the minor child. They go into deep examination of this childs abs, breasts and hips. They stare and gawk at the body of this 16-year-old. Of course what they fail to mention is the family picture they cite a "baby bump" in is an Anchorage Daily News photo from 2006. Wow that is a long pregnancy.

In all of this we see the usual "enlightened" discussion we have become accustomed to from the left. The only question left to ask is, will the debates be on the news, or Dateline NBC.

To bad McCain's daughter is over the age of 18. She is too old for the liberals to stare at.

History Made in Dayton

I just returned from Dayton and my on-stage seat. This gave me a great view of the back of people’s heads, but also a chance to meet and shake the hands of Gov. Palin and Sen. McCain (and their proud spouses). Enjoy my pictures and I apologize for the blurriness. There was not a lot of light and I did not take the “good” camera (too bulky).

McCain Delayed By Traffic

Only in Ohio would Sen. McCain be dalayed by the highway construction Ohio is Known for.

So far it has been a high energy show. A local band, 'Element' played and rocked it out.

More to come. A lot of movement so I think he is close.

Party Unity in the Dems?

Soon after Hillary Clinton delivered her ‘Unity’ speech at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday, a CNN reporter interviewed a Delegate who is also a Clinton supporter.

HUGE McCain Rally in Dayton: Huge Announcement?


Sen. John McCain will hold a big rally in Dayton, Ohio on Aug. 29, the day after "The Messiah” Obama accepts his anointment nomination at the DNC.

Is this event in Dayton going to be where his VP is announced? Who knows but that is the speculation. I can tell you first hand that no one knows if he will, and if so, who it is. Point is, this looks to be a great event and it goes to show that Sen. McCain understands that Ohio is THE state to win.
