It's YOUR Money!!

So, how does it feel to be a big-time Wall Street investor?

You are, you know... Whether you know it or not, you (and your children and grand children, and your children's children's great-grand-children) just invested over a Trillion (that's a one with twelve zeros after it) dollars in home loans for people who wouldn't have qualified for a loan of any kind, were it not for government meddling.

And the Left says that this crisis is the product of "The Free Market" running wild.

Well, it's nothing of the sort. As a matter of fact, this is about the furthest thing from what the "Free Market" would have done under any circumstances, save the ones that have been put into place by social engineering Democrats, and Socialist Activists.

We all know that a drowning man will drown you too, if you are not careful when you try to save him, and the American Taxpayer is about to be drowned while saving the drowning Mortgage and Banking Industry. (And it wasn't even the choice of the Taxpayer whether to try to save these entities. The people who made the mess in the first place just decided to use your money for this, whether you like it or not.)

Tomorrow, I will post again on this, and I will lay out the chronology and the process by which the Democrat Party and the Socilalists among us have set up this catastrophe, and how they profited both financially and politically every step of the way, and how they are attempting now to lay the blame for their own corruption and incompetence at the feet of the Republican Party, and President Bush.

Be informed. Do your own research. Make sure that you know the real story.

The only way to solve a problem is to know what actually caused the problem in the first place, and to eliminate any influence those factors may have had.

This is the fault of Democrats, start to finish, and it is going to be the undoing of the American economy at best, and the World economy at worst. But it has happened, and those responsible (some of them) are the Economic Advisory Team of one of the candidates for the Presidency of the United States.

Our country has lurched violently into Leftism and Socialism this week, and I do not know what to do about it.

But SOMETHING HAS to be done about this.

These Taxpayer funded bailouts are the most outrageous thing that has ever been foisted upon the American People by our elected representatives, and we ought not put up with this abuse of power and corruption.

But we probably will...

After all, who has time for Revolution and overthrowing the Government?

We have mortgages to pay for...

From MarketWatch Columnist Jon Friedman at

The Sarah Palin Phenomenon is doomed.

But it's not because of her lack of foreign policy experience or her deer-in-the-headlights look during part of her interview last week with ABC's Charles Gibson.

The primary reason why the Palin bubble will burst is that the media will decide that they are bored with her. They'll need to move to shine a light on a fresh issue or individual.

Is that a fact?

Well, then, Mr. Media Man... Tell us some more about how powerful and influential you are.

Let's take bets as to how many people will remember Sarah Palin's name in 100 years, and how many will not remember your's, Mr.... (wait, let me look again...) Friedman.

"We made her, and we will tear her back down at our leisure."

Well, from the way the big media has acted about Sarah Palin, she looks like about the very LAST thing that those guys wanted, from Charlie Gibson right on down. (By the way... Which interview did you watch, Mr. Friedman?)

Oh, and remember this...

She only has to last for another 49 days, 2 hours, 8 minutes, and 57 seconds.

56, 55, 54, 53...

The War Hero And The Community Organizer...

“America needs more than a brave soldier. America needs a wise leader...” said Mr. Biden.

Really? Where in the world are we going to find one of those?

The Democrats are desperately trying to tie John McCain to George W. Bush. They will tell you that McCain voted with George Bush 90% of the time. (You would think that a lock-step partisan flunkie would have voted with the President 100% of the time, the way the Democrats voted against him...)

They tell us that a McCain Presidency would offer absolutely no change from the horrors of the Bush years, only more of the same...

They call McCain "McBush", and tell us that McCain is running for Bush's third term, and that McCain wants the U.S. to stay engaged in a bloody, hopeless struggle in Iraq for the next hundred years, no matter how many of our babies he has to send to the slaughter.

And they believe that they have a very good reason for telling us all this stuff... They believe that if they can only tie McCain closely enough to President Bush, that there is no way that McCain can possibly win the White House.

Here is the flaw in their logic, however...

Republicans don't hate President Bush.

Not the way that Democrats do.

And the reason that Conservatives were not particularly thrilled with McCain (until Sarah Palin came along), or with President Bush for that matter, was not because they were too much alike, or because they weren't religious enough, or any of that stuff...

It was because neither of them is conservative enough.

So, America needs a wise leader, huh, Mr. Biden?

Well, unfortunately, this time around, there doesn't seem to be one on either ticket. Not at the top, anyway.

So, we have to choose between a War Hero, (a real one, not the kind the Democrats tried to run last time, who threw grenades on himself until he was allowed to come home and wage war against his brothers in arms with the "Winter Soldier " campaign...), and a mealy-mouthed communist.

And, given those two options, I'll take the Hero, thank you very much.

Sarah Palin...

From the Right: "Hooray! Huzzah!! YEEEEE-HAH!!!"

From the Left: "Boo! Hiss!! OH, MY [object of worship of either a religious or non religious nature]!!!"

Who is she?

Well, she looks sort of like the librarian in the video for Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher". She is either a woman of faith, or a Bible-thumping religious nut depending upon which side of her you happen to be looking at. She's a married mother of either four or five children, depending on whether you believe her, or the National Enquirer and Us Weekly. 

Either she is the noble, responsible mother of (at least) one "special needs" child, who made the hard choice, knowing that the child would be afflicted with Down's Syndrome, to nevertheless bring that defective child into the world rather than kill it in-utero, and devote herself to it's care and well-being, or someone who faked a pregnancy to cover up the possibility that her daughter procreates like a herd of rabbits.

She is either a "working mother" who constantly juggles the responsibilities of Governor of a state with the aproximate land mass of any twelve other states you would like to add together, or an incompetent twit who cannot even keep her family in line, and abuses power in order to punish and persecute the ex-husband of her sister.

She is either a strong woman in a man's world, or a Conservative man in a woman's body, depending on whether or not you care about the opinion of the National Organization of Ugly Liberal Women.

She is either the saviour of the Nation, or the focal point of Evil in our time, depending on whether you call yourself a Conservative or a Liberal.

Either way, she is the Republican Nominee for the position of Vice President of the United States.

Personally, I like her. (Big shock.) 

And, at first, it was difficult for me to put my finger on why I liked her. But then it dawned on me... She didn't tell me directly that she believed or stood for what she thought I wanted a candidate to believe or to stand for in order to get my vote.

She stated as obvious, undebatable fact the things that I believe to be true.

"America needs more energy ... our opponent (and his political party) is against producing it.

"Victory in Iraq is finally in sight ... he wants to forfeit.

"Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay ... he wants to meet them without preconditions.

"Government is too big ...

"Congress spends too much ...

"Taxes are too high ..."

And so on, and so on, and so forth.

And she has proven through the way she lives her life that she understands the fact that if any substantive and worthwhile change is going to take place, someone, somewhere is going to have to do some work, some heavy lifting to bring it about.

No "free" healthcare and subsequent government programs to force you to the grocery store because you are "obese"...

Freedom to manage your own diet, even if you have to hunt it down and kill it yourself.

I was not, and still am not particularly enthused with John McCain...

But I will vote for him now.

I will vote for him because I want Sarah Palin, and a hundred more like her, in Washington, loudly and proudly proclaiming and fighting for the values and priorities that she has lived in her own life, and that represent the vast number of us out here who work every day, and love and support our families and our Country, no matter what their shortcomings may be.

The only thing I regret is the fact that she is on the bottom of the ticket, and not the top.

I, along with the rest of America, am still learning who she is.

But, from what I have seen so far, I can tell you what she is...

Sarah Palin is a strong, assertive, and successful American woman who didn't have to become a bitter, victimized, man-hating shrew to get that way.

She is exactly like millions of strong and successful women all across America that the National Organization of Ugly Angry Women and the Democrat Party not only do not represent, but do not in the least understand.

McCain/Palin will beat the socks off of Obama/what's-his-name in November.

Not because of what they promise us from the national Goody-bag, not because of how they look or how well they read from a teleprompter, not because of what someone in the Media, or on Talk Radio tells us to think...

But because of what Sarah Palin IS, and because of what, and who, she actually represents.
