Shocka! The Media is in the tank for Obama!!!!

Well, Maybe not…. (On the shock, that is….)

Instapundit.com:

A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: “Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working.” I asked permission to reprint without attribution and it was granted.

I take it that I am supposed to be shocked and surprised? Hardly. Considering what has taken place in the past 8 years with this Presidential Administration, I am surprised that the Liberal Media has not trotted out some person claiming that McCain molested them, when they were a kid or something obscene of that effect.

Before anyone gives me any static, I’ll be the first to admit, I am not, nor have I ever been a Bush fan, at all. No, I don’t suffer from BDS. But his spending like a drunken Sailor and big government horseshit, just does not appeal to this Libertarian Conservative, and I’ll be happy to tell someone who has a problem with that, to go jump in the lake.

Snort Worthy Quote of the Day

Now This is FUNNY!

Jefferson County Sheriff Oliver “Glenn” Boyer, who was also named Gov. Blunt’s statement, told WND that not only had he never agreed to join the “Truth Squad,” but also that it “infuriated” him that anyone would think he’d use his office to squash others’ freedom of speech.


“I’m a small, Democratic sheriff in rural Missouri,” Boyer told WND. “I haven’t even seen the original interview with Jennifer Joyce and Bob McCulloch. … All I know is, I came into my office on Monday morning unaware of any of this. I had a fundraiser Saturday, when all this started, of my own. I came into my office Monday morning, and I’ve got 500 emails and 19 nasty phone calls calling me a communist pig! I think, ‘Man, I thought it was a pretty good fundraiser.’”

One was enough, Thank you very much….

Via WDIV Detroit: (and Confirmed in the Detroit News)

DETROIT, Mich. – This February Detroiters may see a familiar name on the special primary election ballot.Coleman A. Young Jr. wants to follow his famous father’s footsteps, and run for Detroit mayor.He is the son of late Mayor Coleman A. Young Sr., who was Detroit’s first black mayor, and served from 1974 to 1993.

Young Jr. turns 26 in October, and if elected he would be the youngest mayor in Detroit’s history. He vows to continue his father’s legacy of being the “People’s Champion.

“Young Jr. is a state representative in the 4th District of the House.He moved back to Detroit in 2005 after spending several years on the East Coast, doing some acting.

The Good Lord above knows that the last thing that Detroit needs is another Coleman Young running Detroit. Democrat Coleman Young’s corruption is stuff of legend. I know, I’ve lived in the Detroit area, all my life. I lived in Detroit for 19 years of my life. I saw Coleman Young’s way of running a city. One word sums it up: Disaster.

Quoting the Detroit News:

But critics like political consultant Adolph Mongo say Young is not ready for prime time and should take more time to learn.

“I worked for his father. I knew Coleman Young,” Mongo said. “And he’s no Coleman Young. Coleman Young had a lifetime of dealing with politicians
and social issues. He needs to sit down somewhere and get some experience.”

[...]

Bill Ballenger, editor of the newsletter Inside Michigan Politics, said Young “might do a lot better than a lot of people think” in a
mayoral race.

“He has some of his father’s pizzazz,” Ballenger said Monday. “I wouldn’t underestimate him, but I wouldn’t tap him as  the favorite, either.”

I can almost see it now. The man loses and what does he do? Pull the race card. But then again, we are talking about Democrat’s they do the identity politics thing, very well.

Please, anyone, but him. :roll:

Think the bailout failure just affected the US?

Think again…

The failure of this bailout plan is affecting the world markets as well, according to the BBC.

The markets affected are:

  • The UK’s FTSE 100 index was up 0.18% or 8.5 points to 4,827 by 12:00 BST, while Germany’s Dax was 0.9% lower at 5,756 and France’s Cac was down 0.2% to 3,949
  • Banking shares were the biggest fallers in London, as concerns grow about how the delay in securing a US rescue deal will hit the financial system
  • HBOS was down 12%, Royal Bank of Scotland was 6% lower
  • Japan’s Nikkei index ended Tuesday down 4.1%, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 0.8%
  • In Russia, trading was temporarily suspended on the country’s two main stock markets
  • In the Republic of Ireland, the government announced that all bank deposits would be guaranteed for the next two years
  • European bank Dexia has received a state bail-out, costing the Belgian, French and Luxembourg governments a combined 6.4bn euros ($9.2bn; £5bn)

So, this isn’t just an American crisis, this could very well turn into a world crisis, and from the looks of it, the crisis has already started.

More thoughts on the Bailout and it’s effect on our Economy

I hate to admit it, but I agree with this…. Sort of…

Via RealClearMarkets – “In Times of Crisis, Trust Capitalism”:

The biggest bank failure in the history of the United States happened last Thursday night and by Friday morning, it was business as usual. The only difference was the name on the door and the losses suffered by those unfortunate enough to invest in Washington Mutual bonds or stock. The taxpayers didn’t lose anything and depositors didn’t lose anything, only investors. That is how capitalism works in case everyone has forgotten.

The “crisis” we face today is not a creation of the market. Government intervention over many years (but especially the last year) is what brought us to the point where we’ve placed our hopes for economic recovery on the good intentions of a Congress facing re-election in a few weeks. There has been much commentary recently about the role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the creation and expansion of the sub-prime mortgage market which many believe to be the cause of this mess.

That criticism is certainly warranted, but little attention has been paid to the real culprit – the Federal Reserve. Furthermore, what attention there has been is concentrated on the role of Alan Greenspan rather than Ben Bernanke. While Alan Greenspan deserves his share of the blame, Bernanke’s contribution to this mess should not be minimized or excused.

 

I have something to add to this as well. The biggest problem with this all is, most of this money, that’s being lost, is not even our money, it’s China’s money! Also half of the money being printed, does not have any gold to back it up! This is why our inflation is so high. As Joseph notes above, our biggest problem with our nation’s Economy is the Federal Reserve. If we got rid of the Federal Reserve, and went back to the 100% Gold Standard, much of our Nation’s Economic problems would be solved. Not to mention, if we stopped getting money from China.

The only thing that I really disagree with here, in a way, is the assessment that this all will not affect the American Taxpayers. In a sense, it will affect the taxpayers. Because it will cause a overall stall in the economy. This will translate into a crunch in the business world, small and mid-size businesses that do not have a great deal of capital will not be able to barrow money for needed expenses. This will cause a overall tightening of the financial belt amongst the Small to mid-sized business and will force them to dump employees.

Locally here in Michigan, our unemployment is at 7%, last I checked, I expect that to soar and get even worse, if this continues. Personally, I have family members who are paranoid about their jobs being lost. I assume that those jobs will get even more unstable, if this wears on.

Not to mention the fact that Taxpayers are watching their 401K’s and retirement nest eggs go down the tubes as well. That affects Conservatives who do not believe in using Social Security as a form of income. So, in a matter of speaking, this is going to effect everyone. In the form of Jobs, Retirements, 401k’s and more much.

A reason why this bail out failed…

I can understand this…

Via Andy McCarthy @ The Corner on National Review Online

This was a terrible bill. To take just a few particulars, why is there no reform of the government interventions that got us to this point in the first place? Why aren’t Fannie and Freddie being wound down — even after we’ve now had to make explicit the implicit, disastrous government guarantee? Why is Pelosi saying (as I noted in an earlier post) that the authority in the bill will allow the Treasury Department (perhaps soon an Obama Treasury Department) to take bad debt off the hands of mismanaged state and local governments?

Some would say that a bad bill would be better than no bill at all. I disagree. I believe that it is better to have a bill that works for the American people and does not bailout Wall Street and screw the American people and the small businesses over.

So, for once, I agree with something written over at the NRO. Mark this on your calendar, because it does not happen often. ;)

Bailout failure, politics and stupidity

Yes, I am aware of the failure of the bailout. I also see where John McCain took credit for it, before it flopped. Loser

The stock losses were unbelievable. Surprise Here’s the final numbers:

Dow

10,365.45
-777.68
(-6.98%)

Nasdaq

1,983.73
-199.61
(-9.14%)

S&P 500

1,106.42
-106.59
(-8.79%)

The really stupid part about this whole thing is Democrats and Republicans are blaming one another. Which is absolutely idiotic. They should be working to find solutions, instead of pointing fingers. I mean while the people in Washington D.C. were squabbling over $700 billion, the markets lost $1.2 trillion. Folks, that’s more money than most of us will ever see in a lifetime. Money EyesHypnotized

Of course, the far left Anti-Capitalists are happy that this is happening. Which about par for the course with the Liberals. They hate anything related to Conservative values in America. Like making a profit. Waiting

Personally, I believe we need to get rid of the Federal Reserve Bank and go back to the 100% Gold Standard, that would get rid of all this excess money in our system and bring value back to the dollar. I posted a video to that effect here. Because 90% of this money, that we are losing, is China’s money. Plus, 90% cannot be backed up with gold, thereby making it valueless anyhow. I would not be surprised if China stops all money imports here. That would really put us in a bad spot. I have books on this subject are available at my blog Bookstore.

Hopefully, Congress will pass something here this week. Because sooner or later, this will begin to affect the American people. Which will not be good at all. Striaght Face

Comedy Gold: Tina Fey’s second Sarah Palin performance

Finally, I forced myself to sit and watch the new SNL performance of Sarah Palin by Tina Fey. I normally do not watch second performances like this, because the humor usually goes stale. But in this case, this was funny. The rapid eye blinking, the silly answers, The cute when cornered answer was awesomely funny.

For what it is worth, I did not find any of this skit offensive at all. As matter of fact, if anyone in the McCain campaign thinks this is offensive, they seriously need to look into getting a sense of humor.

Here it is, in all it’s glory: 

Stay Classy G.O.P.

Via USATODAY.com:

The spokeswoman for the Republican Party in Nevada’s most populous county was removed from her post Saturday, after she said the Democratic Party made black people "dependent on the government."

Didi Lima, the Clark County GOP communications director, also was removed from her volunteer role as a Hispanic community liaison for Republican John McCain’s presidential campaign over the remarks made earlier in the day while working at a McCain campaign booth.

"We don’t want (Hispanics) to become the new African-American community," Lima told The Associated Press. "And that’s what the Democratic Party is going to do to them, create more programs and give them handouts, food stamps and checks for this and checks for that. We don’t want that."

"I’m very much afraid that the Democratic Party is going to do the same thing that they did with the African-American culture and make them all dependent on the government and we don’t want that," she said.

In August, Lima was named co-chair of McCain’s Nevada Hispanic Leadership Team, which aimed to reach out to a crucial voting bloc in a state where polls show McCain in a dead heat with Barack Obama.

Hmmmmm… She trying to imitate another famous Conservative?

Like I said, Stay classy Republicans…. :roll: Eye-rollingRolling Eyes

Amazing: WorldNetDaily proves Barack Obama right!

Amazing

Of course, other Blogs like Hotair and Macsmind will say, "Oh, WND cannot be trusted."

Kudo’s to Farah for getting this story.

What I am referring to is, that Barack Obama is constantly said, and even said during the debate that Al-Qaeda is back to pre-9/11 status and strength. Which McCain and other Neo-Cons Deny.

The Wall Street Bailout drama continues….

Just a word of warning, I’m still nursing my first cup of coffee. Coffee-cupSleepyYawn So, hopefully, this article will make some sense. Hee hee

But the good news is, I got my emoticons back here. Dancing So, I can at least show a little emotion in my writings. Big Grin

Some people say that if you use the Emoticons, people tend to not take you as serious. Well, to that I say, well, Phbbbttt Because I feel you would not take me serious either way, if had the emoticons or not.

The “Mother of all bailouts” is creating it’s share of drama in the Blogosphere and on Capital Hill. For instance, Minority Leader John A. Boehner called the deal a “crap sandwich”. Sick and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., ranking Republican on the House Budget Committee said of the Bill, “It sucks”. Michelle Malkin is just flat out encouraging her people to “Kill the Bill”. However, Jack Fowler at the Corner is saying:

Conservatives should support them in backing the bailout plan. And then, when that is completed, roll up our sleeves and join Cantor & Co. as they work to craft and enact a broader strategy to improve America’s fiscal health.

So, obviously, this thing is dividing Conservatives.

Another interesting tidbit of information, according to “The Hill”, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio). says:  “I will tell you right now I don’t know if they have votes,”  “If the votes were there, this would be on the floor. The votes aren’t there.” An interesting development indeed.

Obviously, there’s a ton of opinions and angles on this story. Most of which can be found at Memeorandum.

Developing: Pirates who hijack Iranian ship drop dead

(H/T Little Green Footballs)

The Times of ZA-land is reporting that Pirates that have taken over a Iranian Ship have been dropping like flies.

A tense standoff has developed in waters off Somalia over an Iranian merchant ship laden with a mysterious cargo that was hijacked by
pirates.

Somali pirates suffered skin burns, lost hair and fell gravely ill “within days” of boarding the MV Iran Deyanat. Some of them died.

Andrew Mwangura, the director of the East African Seafarers’ Assistance Programme, told the Sunday Times: “We don’t know exactly how
many, but the information that I am getting is that some of them had died. There is something very wrong about that ship.”

The vessel’s declared cargo consists of “minerals” and “industrial products”. But officials involved in negotiations over the ship are
convinced that it was sailing for Eritrea to deliver small arms and chemical weapons to Somalia’s Islamist rebels.

Wouldn’t it be funny, if we busted Iran with weapons of mass destruction on a ship?

A very interesting video on our Nation’s banking system

This video, made by the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, makes the case of why the United States of America should go to a 100% gold standard.

I highly recommend that everyone watch this video.

Also, I recommend everyone go to my bookstore and check out the section on the gold standard.

Now here’s a smart idea….

Now the Democrats are using their brains.

U.S. Democrats seek Wall Street tax in bailout plan (Via Reuters):

Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are pushing for a new Wall Street tax that would cover the potential costs of a $700 billion bailout being negotiated by Congress and the Bush administration.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking to reporters after a meeting with fellow Democrats, said the fee could be assessed after five years if the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office determined taxpayers had lost money in the bailout.

“If after five years … the CBO decides that the American taxpayer has lost money in this, then there would be a fee on financial institutions,” Pelosi said, adding that she hoped the provision could be part of a final bailout deal.

Pelosi said that the Secretary of the Treasury could determine how to assess the fee.

It is a about damn time the Democrats wised up. This would ensure that the taxpayer, (i.e. you and me) would not get stuck paying the bill on this “bail out”.

I know some traders will scream about this. But, you know what I say? screw ‘em! I say, let the assholes making the big money get the tax, instead of the working class, like me, who do not even play the markets.

I am all for free markets, but I’m also for responsibility. If greed caused all this, let the damn greedy ones pay for it in taxes, instead of the average American, like me!

Bailout accord agreement reached

Well, it looks like the lawmakers in Washington D.C. have reached an agreement to bail out Wall Street.

Welcome to Nationalized Banking. I just wonder how high taxes will go to pay for this little bail out?

It is to wonder.

It seems there’s been a great deal of oversight added to the original bill and other good things. So, we’ll see.

Paul Newman has Died

PaulNewman

There are many things that I could write about this man. Most of it has already been written by writers who get paid a hell of a lot more money than me. Paul Newman; The name itself evokes images of a rebel. It also conjures up other images; Quality, integrity, Living what you believe, having the guts to stand up for what you believe in and just being a man.

Paul Newman was the real deal, he lived what he believed. He established a camp for children who are on their last dime in life. He knew the pain, he lost one of his own kids to a drug overdose in 1978. This was Newman’s way of making making someone else’s life a little brighter in a time of terrible suffering. Newman answered the call to War in the 1940’s. In short, he was, in fact, a part of the greatest generation ever. I do not believe that it would be an embellishment of truth to say that Newman was, in fact, an FDR Democrat.

I do not claim to be a movie fanatic or someone who watches lots of movies. But the name Paul Newman has always been a part of the actors of whom I highly respect. Unlike some of the people that reside in this thing we call the Blogosphere, I do not go around wearing my damn politics on my sleeve and I do have more respect than some as well. Yes, Paul Newman was, in fact, a Democrat. He was of the old school Democratic Party, before it became enjoined at the hip to Communist Socialism. From that old school came another great actor, who would go on to be one of our greatest Presidents, Ronald Reagan.

Put your gun down Butch and rest a while. God knows, you’ve earned it.

May he rest in peace and my God be with his family.

Horseshit-gate!?!?! Does it get any more silly?

Heh, Sullivan thought McCain said, “Horseshit”, instead of “Of Course you can”.

Wow. I thought I was shallow. :P

Anyhow, here’s a song that I feel fits the occasion:

“Smells like horseshit, down on the farm!”

Too Funny!

Now I realize that some of you might not like the idea of all the ads. But I need the money. So, the ads are there. I’d appreciate it, if you’d click a few of them… 

Also… I have donation buttons to your right over there. They’re not there for looks, they’re there for a reason. If you can spare the extra cash, drop a few bucks into the tip jar.
