Here's some candy for your ears.

(That's a GREAT costume, by the way... Scared me half to death!)

In my opinion, this (especially this version from season two...) is one of the coolest pieces of music ever.

John Edwards For President!!

From the Concord Monitor Online...

Edwards plans big for presidency
Candidate: $acrifice must be priority, too...
(Cool! We Americans LOVE sacrifice!)

John Edward$ $ay$ if he's elected pre$ident, he'll in$titute a New Deal-like $uite of program$ to fight poverty and $tem growing wealth di$parity. To do it, he said, he'll a$k many American$ to make $acrifice$, like paying higher taxe$.

Edward$, a former (1 two-year term) Democratic senator from North Carolina, says the federal government $hould underwrite univer$al pre-kindergarten, create matching $aving$ account$ for low-income people, mandate a minimum wage of $9.50 and provide a million new $ection 8 hou$ing voucher$ for the poor. He also pledged to start a government-funded public higher education program called "College for Everyone."

"It i$ central to what I want to do a$ pre$ident to do $omething about economic inequality. I do not believe it i$ okay for the United $tate$ of America to have 37 million people living in poverty," he $aid in a meeting with Monitor reporter$ and editor$ this week. "And I think we need, de$perately need, a pre$ident who will $ay that to America and call on American$ to $how their character."

Hey, Idiot... When are Americans going to demand a president who will call on America's POOR to show their character, and stop making choices and engaging in behavior in their OWN lives that lead to poverty?

Why is anyone still listening to this dolt?

The people of North Carolina were so impressed with how much he accomplished for them in the Senate, that after only two years, they decided that his work was done, and released him from further service as their Senator so that he could pursue bigger and better ambulanc... er... bigger and better things.

"I think if we want to fund the thing$ that I think are important to $hare in pro$perity, then people who have done well in this country, including me, have more of a re$pon$ibility to give back," he $aid. Later, he added: "There are no free meal$."

Oooooh, yes, there ARE!!

Like other Democrat$, Edward$ named hi$ top three prioritie$ a$ ending the war in Iraq, enacting univer$al health care and overhauling the American energy $ystem. "Tho$e are three thing$ in$tantly I would do," he $aid.

INSTANTLY. He would INSTANTLY do those three things.

He would then use the remaining seven years, eleven months, twenty-nine days, twenty-three hours, fifty-nine minutes and fifty-nine seconds of his presidency to give every American, (except you, there...) free pre-kindergarten, a free college education, free Section 8 housing vouchers, a chicken in every pot, and HUGE PECTORAL MUSCLES.

All at taxpayer expense, of course.

No, wait! At the expense of RICH taxpayers. (You know, all those Americans who have spare money lying around that they are not using, and probably wouldn't miss anyway.)

(Like, well, like John Edwards!)

I have a question...

When are these Democrats going to stop dragging their feet, and promise the American People what we REALLY want?

We want a Million Dollars.


It's as realistic as all of the other stuff they are promising...

The Democrat Plan For Your Paycheck...

Copied and pasted directly from the Committee On Ways And Means Republicans Website...

Press Release

Memo: McCrery on "Mother of All Tax Hikes"
October 25, 2007
By Ways and Means Republican Press Office

RE: “Mother of All Tax Hikes” Bill
TO: Republican Members, Republican Staff
FROM: Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Jim McCrery

My Friends,

At a bipartisan Ways and Means caucus last night, Chairman Rangel outlined his long-awaited “Mother of All Tax Hikes” legislation. The basics of the package are simple: This is the largest individual income tax increase in history.

The bill will add a 4% surtax on Americans earning more than $150,000 a year ($200,000 for couples). That is on top of the scheduled expiration of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. So, under Democrats’ plan, over the next few years, the individual income top tax rate in the United States will rise from 35% to 44%. By way of comparison, the other 29 Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development countries – basically other developed nations - have an average top marginal tax rate of 35.7%. In fact, only five OECD countries would have higher top marginal tax rates in 2011 than the United States if the Democrats’ bill is enacted.

This crushingly high tax rate will affect approximately 10 million taxpayers directly - including those who report business income, like small business owners and farmers - but the damage will ripple throughout our economy. Because small businesses and family farms often pay their income taxes as individuals, this is a massive tax hike on the engine that drives job growth in this country.

In addition, the surtax is on adjusted gross income, not taxable income. This sounds like a technical issue, but it means that Rangel’s bill will erode the value of a series of tax deductions – including for mortgage interest, charitable giving, medical expenses, state and local taxes, and the standard deduction. And, because the surtax kicks in at $150,000 for individuals and $200,000 for couples, the bill creates a monster of a marriage penalty.

Chairman Rangel will claim that these tax increases go to provide tax cuts to 90 million Americans, but he is selling pure snake-oil. Many if not most of those taxpayers are getting a purely imaginary “tax cut.” Some of them are the roughly 20 million people that Republicans shielded with the Alternative Minimum Tax patch. Millions more are people who have benefited from the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, and only get “tax cuts” if you assume that the 10% bracket, marriage penalty, and $1,000 per child tax credit will expire. Others, like single people who will now be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit, are getting a tax refund from the government even though they don’t actually pay income taxes.

It will take time to analyze this bill and sort through the data, but we know from the start that the 90 million figure is pure hokum. In fact, before you know it more taxpayers may wind up paying higher taxes – and fewer paying less - under Rangel’s plan than they did last year.
Which brings us to the larger fallacy of the Democrats’ “paygo” system. There is no need to “pay for” protecting taxpayers from a massive AMT tax hike. The government never meant for the AMT to affect middle-class Americans, and we have a responsibility to make sure it doesn’t. By arguing that preventing this tax increase requires us to raise taxes elsewhere, Democrats are trying to lock Congress into a system where we are guaranteed to raise taxes by $3.5 trillion over ten years.

That’s right. $3.5 trillion. The baseline that the Democrats are using for “paygo” includes revenue from an “un-patched” AMT and from the tax increases that occur when the 2001 and 2003 tax laws expire after 2010. Together they total $3.5 trillion over ten years. If we play by the Democrats “paygo” rules, that is the size of the tax increase we are imposing on the American people. That will hurt our nation’s competitiveness and cost us American jobs. The Rangel bill is the first step down a road none of us want to follow, and I urge you to oppose it strongly.

American Democrats Come Out In Favor Of Genocide...

From the New York Times...

Support Wanes in House for Genocide Vote

Support for a House resolution condemning as genocide the mass killings of Armenians in 1915 continued to weaken today as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who only days ago vowed to bring the measure to the floor of the House, signaled that she may be changing her mind. [ about Genocide.]

Worried about antagonizing Turkish leaders, House members from both parties have been withdrawing their support from the resolution [ against Genocide], which had been backed by the Democratic leadership [ but is no longer being backed by them... A CLEAR sign of Democrat support for Genocide. ]

The measure [condemning Genocide]’s prospects were weakened further today when Representative John P. Murtha, the Pennsylvania Democrat who [aparently likes the idea of Genocide, and] heads the Appropriations subcommittee on military matters, spoke out against it. [ Expressing his support for Genocide.]

“What happened nearly 100 years ago was terrible,” said Mr. Murtha, who has urged the speaker not to bring up the resolution [condemning Genocide] for a vote. “I don’t know whether it was a massacre or a genocide, but that is beside the point. The point is, we have to deal with today’s world.”

Even Left-leaning Bloggers are coming out to show their support for Genocide.

"It was only a couple million people, no big deal. The Jews should shut up about their holocaust too since it's been over 60 years." - toad734

Absolutely dispicable...

How do these people live with themselves?

Representing The Views Of His Constituents...

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Representative Pete Stark-D, Ca.

And National Policy, by which we all will have to abide, is DAILY being created by him, and others like him, based on this type of blind hatred and rage.

They should make this guy into a Reality TV Show.

He should have Cameras and Microphones on him 24/7/365.

Let's get that Liberal Agenda, and the attitudes that it is based upon right on out there, for everyone to plainly see!

Thank you, Rep. Stark!

Today you did a service to your Country.

The Communists Are Under My Bed?!?

A discussion over at Mark's place reminded me of this, so I looked the tired old thing up again.

I am posting it simply for the purpose of discussion.

Whle I do not believe that the United States has become a Communist Country (in the strict sense of the word), we do have a healthy dose of Communist, or at least Communistic policies firmly in place, and anyone who opposes the expansion of those types of policies is roundly demonized and villified as hating the poor, wanting to starve children, wanting to deny people life saving health-care, and so on.

So here it is:

The Ten Planks of the Communist Party

In the early 1960's during the days of the "former" Soviet Union, Russian Premier Nikita Kruschev pounded his shoe on the podium of the United Nations and shouted to the West, "We will bury you!" Fearing an invasion from the Reds, America proceeded to build the most awesome military machine in history. Unfortunately, we forgot to guard our political homefront from being taken over by socialist - communist - liberal activists who would gain office and destroy American law by process of gradually installing the Communist agenda within our legal system and separate branches of government.

The Communist program from the start has been one which sees their revolution of 1917 successful only upon total domination of the world. (See Brain Washing, A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psycho-politics)

Americans, being the most naive people among the nations, now believe that Communism is dead because the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain have been removed. The ironic truth is that Communism has just switched names to become more "politically correct".

Today it is called international democracy.

The reason that the Berlin Wall came crashing down is not because Communism is dead but because they have achieved the planned agenda to communize the West, including America.

Washington D.C. has indeed become part of the New World Order of atheist governments. With the last vestiges of Christian law having been removed from "American government" over the last twenty years, there is no longer a threat of resistance against world Communism.

In reality, "American government" became part of the Iron Curtain, thus there was no more need for the likes of a Berlin Wall.

Once again, in their foolishness, the American public has believed the lies of their "leaders" who applaud "the fall of Communism", while they have sold out the country to anti-Christian, anti-American statutes and regulations on the federal, state, and local levels.

Posted below is a comparison of the original ten planks of the Communist Manifesto written by Karl Marx in 1848, along with the American adopted counterpart of each of the planks.

The American people have truly been "buried in Communism" by their own politicians of both the Republican and Democratic parties.

One other thing to remember: Karl Marx was stating in the Communist Manifesto that these planks will test whether a country has become communist or not.

If they are all in effect and in force the country IS communist. Communism, but by any other name...??

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose.

The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

Misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State "income" taxes. We call it "paying your fair share".

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

We call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

We call in government seizures, tax liens, Public "law" 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of "terrorists" and those who speak out or write against the "government" (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

We call it the Federal Reserve which is a credit/debt system nationally organized by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

6. Centralization of the means of communication and transportation in the hands of the State.

We call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) madated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver's licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

We call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture. As well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Evironmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of Industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

We call it the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two "income" family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

We call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public "law" 89-136.

10. Free education for all children in government schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc. etc.

People are being taxed to support what we call "public" schools, which train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based "Education".

There you have it.

Anatomy Of An Ass Kicking...

"The United States has alienated its allies, dismayed its friends and inadvertently gratified its enemies by proclaiming a confused and disturbing strategy." - Jimmy Carter

From the New York Times Dot Com...

October 17, 2007
Support Wanes in House for Genocide Vote

Worried about antagonizing Turkish leaders, House members from both parties have begun to withdraw their support from a resolution supported by the Democratic leadership that would condemn as genocide the mass killings of Armenians nearly a century ago.

Almost a dozen lawmakers had shifted against the measure over the last 24 hours, accelerating a sudden exodus that has cast deep doubt over the measure’s prospects.

Some representatives made clear that they were heeding warnings from the White House, which has called the measure dangerously provocative, and from the Turkish government, which has said House passage would prompt Turkey to reconsider its ties to the United States, including logistical support for the Iraq war.

Until today, the resolution appeared to be on a path to House passage, with strong support from the House speaker,
Nancy Pelosi of California.

It was approved last week by the House Foreign Affairs Committee. But this evening, a group of senior House Democrats had made it known they were planning to ask the leadership to drop plans for a vote on the measure.

The Democrats have clearly bitten off more than they, even with their sizable mouths, can chew here.

I still believe that the supporters of this idiocy should be imprisoned and charged with the crime of Treason. ( Whether they intended to alienate one of our allies by this or not is irrelevant. If I run over a child with my truck while groping for my cell phone in the floor, I am still responsible for the results of my actions, whether I intended to kill a child or not.)

There should be consequences for stupidity, even if you are a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.

ESPECIALLY if you are the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Nancy Pelosi is third in line for the Presidency of the United States, behind the Vice President.

She has responsibilities beyond what is politically benificial to her particular political party.

But she does not conduct herself as if this is the case.

She sees herself as a Democrat Leader, not a servant of ALL of the people.

She, at least, should be removed from her position as Speaker of the House.

This whole attempt by her, and the rest of her party to disrupt the Supply Lines to our troops on the feild of battle is disgusting (at best,) and criminal (at least.)

If any of you who may read this will not join me in condemning this action, and calling for the punishment of those involved, then don't you EVER AGAIN tell me that you support the troops.

You DON'T.

(Hat tip to Mike from Mike's America for the Jimmy Carter quote.)

This Should Not Go Unpunished!

NOW can we charge them with Treason?

If not, what more would they have to do?

Would they have to actually GO to Turkey and Iraq, and blow up bridges ahead of U.S. Supply Convoys?

Musical Interlude...

The Ventures...

I never get tired of this song.

My dad used to play it on his guitar when I was barely old enough to walk, and it was one of the first pieces of music that I learned to play when I started playing guitar.

In this video, it looks like the guitarists are standing on giant marsh-mallows (and are afraid they will fall off).


(BTW - Hat tip to Lone Ranger, who got me started looking for stuff like this on YouTube. Thanks!)

(Republican) For President!!

From the Washington Post...

Bartlett Unleashed: On Flip-Flops, a "Dud" and the Guy With the Funny Name

"One of President Bush's closest advisers has a brutally candid analysis of the Republican nomination battle: Fred Thompson is the campaign's "biggest dud," Mitt Romney has "a real problem in the South" because people will not vote for a Mormon, Mike Huckabee's last name is too hick and John McCain could end up repeating 2000 by winning New Hampshire but losing the nomination."

I did not watch the Republican Debate this afternoon. I generally do not watch Party Primary Debates anyway.

Primary Debates are for people who want a "sampler platter" from which they can choose a neat little package for which to vote.

I pay close enough attention to the entire political landscape to know which candidates most nearly represent my views, and from there I rationally determine which of those candidates is the most electable, and the most likely to defeat the Sociali... uhmn, Democrat against whom he or she will be running in the General Election.

So far I like Fred Thompson, Rudy Giulliani, and Mitt Romney all about equally. They each have their strengths and their weaknesses, but any of them (in my mind) would be about as good as the other, and ANY of them would be better than Hillary (who is, without a doubt, going to be the Democrat Candidate for President in '08, regardless of qualifications.)

I will NEVER, NOT EVER vote for John McCain for ANY elected office, not even dog catcher, because (A) I don't think he has ever READ, much less understood the Constitution, (2) He is far too interested in what the Media thinks of him personally, and lastly but not leastly, he is old enough to remember when dirt was new, and has already been in Washington FAR too long.

Go home already. You've done enough damage, Mr. McCain.

Fred Thompson is the candidate that I WANT to like, but so far, he hasn't SAID anything. I like the way he talks, he looks presidential, and if he can handle the job, I believe that he could be a very impressive president. He claims to be conservative enough for me, and I believe that he would be able to effectively handle the attacks from the Left-leaning Media, and would not allow himself to be abused by them the way that George W. Bush has.

But at this point, it appears that he takes this whole situation as some sort of game, or perhaps as a part in a play or a movie for which he is auditioning, and at that against other actors whom he does not take as serious competition for the part.

He needs to tighten up.

I also like Mike Hickabee, on the surface. Still not 100% sure about his electability. He may very well be the best man for the job, but If he can't beat Hillary, we'd be better off to run someone with whom we don't completely agree, who can.

He still has work to do.

The overthinkers who pontificate about the Republican Feild seem to think that since I live in the South, I would never vote for a Mormon. They say that I would never SAY that this is the reason that I would not vote for Romney, but that I would instead claim that I refuse to vote for him because he "flip-flops" on the issues.

The truth is that I would as soon have a Mormon President as a Catholic, or a Methodist, or even a Baptist, and would RATHER have one than a Godless Liberal. (And would MUCH RATHER have a Mormon than a RELIGIOUS LIBERAL.)

Romney has given me no reason to not vote for him.

Of all of the candidates running for the Republican nomination, Rudolph Giulliani has most effectively proven himself qualified for the nation's highest office. When he was Mayor of New York City, he changed the place from a rat-hole by anyone's standards back to a place that people could be proud to say they were from. He presided with authority over the worst tragedy our nation has ever faced, literally from ground zero.

I have no doubt that he would take National Security and the War on Terror seriously.

I'm not too sure about his views about the Second Ammendment.

But, when questioned about Constitutional issues, I've never heard him give a wrong answer. I have no doubt that he knows and understands what is and is not Constitutional, and that he is not afraid to take a stand, even an unpopular one, if he feels that he (and by extension, WE) should.

That's a LEADER.

I like him.

Ron Paul... On some issues, he's dead-on. On others, he's a nut-ball.

If I want a nut-ball (on ANY issue) in the White House, I'll vote Democrat.

My hot-button issues have nothing to do with Religion, Abortion, or Socialized anything. I'll take care of my own Health Insurance, thank you, my Religion is my own business and I will extend to you the same courtesy, and Conservatives do not abort their children. (So, if the other side wants to self-eliminate, I will not stand in their way. They will answer to God for their sins, same as me.)

When it comes time to cast my vote in the primaries, I will vote for the most economically conservative, strongest on National Security and Border Security candidate that I believe can win the National Election.

And when the '08 Presidential Election rolls around, I will vote against the Democrat candidate, and pray for God to bless my Nation.

(Whatever that means.)

And I could not care less what any talking head says about any of the Republican candidates. (Not even a talking head who used to work for the President.)
