Obama is not a great orator. He is a great narrator.

Democrat Smears on Limbaugh a Tactical MIstake

If there is one thing that democrats do well, it’s painting republicans as rich, racists, haters of the poor, haters of the environment, and baby seal and kitten (the cuddly ones) killers. In short, they are experts at smear tactics. Ken Starr, Wanita Broderick, Paula Jones, George Bush, Trent Lott, Don Imus, Kathlyn Willy, and Newt Gingrich, just to name a few. Now, democrats have targeted Rush Limbaugh. This will be their undoing.

The democratic strategy is to associate conservatism with Rush Limbaugh by calling him their leader and chastising his views as radical hate from the right. This is meant to draw attention away from claims of socialism and failing Obama policies, since Limbaugh is at the forefront of pointing these facts out. Already, we see weak republicans running from Rush Limbaugh. Due to the ignorance of the American public and the embarrassing bias from the mainstream media, this has been a successful tactic.

However, the democrats have erred in choosing Limbaugh as a target for their latest smear campaign. John McCain, for reasons I still don’t understand, was nominated for president on the republican ticket. McCain represented weak conservatism, with many believing him to be more liberal than conservative. The idea that the republican ticket needed to move left came from the media and democratic smears, calling republicans rich, racists, haters of the poor, haters of the environment, and baby seal and kitten (the cuddly ones) killers. The result was a definitive loss for republicans across the board.

The Republican Party will have to go through a major transformation back to conservative principles, championed by Ronald Reagan in the eighties. Rush Limbaugh has been a solid rock in maintaining these principles. Therefore, true conservatives are looking to him for leadership on moving conservatism back to the center of the Republican Party. Mark my words, no republican will win the presidency until he or she runs as a Reagan conservative. Those who flee from Rush Limbaugh (on the republican side) will lose their jobs as the conservative movement returns. Democrats, by drawing attention to Rush, are expediting this process. Especially since Obama’s policies will fail to do anything but drive the economy deeper into recession and move America further into an all out socialist state. Once the ignorant public who voted based on their feelings rather than intelligence see this, Rush’s voice will become all the more stronger.

Tax Hikes On The Rich WIll Cost You

Obama has proposed, as part of the second massive spending bill he has sent to congress, eliminating the Bush tax cuts, which essentially raises taxes on those making $250,000 or more a year. If allowed to pass, this will be devastating to an already beleaguered economy.

The most important thing that everyone needs to understand about all businesses is that they do not pay taxes. Taxes on business are paid for by consumers or the workforce. This comes in the form of lay-offs and price hikes on products and services. So if you are one of those people who hate the rich for having more money than you, and you feel good about the idea of making the mean rich people pay more, think again dummy.

I know a couple who owns a niche business restoring and providing parts for first generation automobiles, like Ford’s Model T. They are extremely worried about Obama’s plan to raise taxes. Although their business makes more than $250,000 a year, this money is used to pay their employees, business bills, etc. This was Joe the Plumbers problem by the way. Now, this wonderful couple already knows how they are going to deal with Obama’s coming tax hikes. They are going to have to lay-off one or two employees that have been working with them for over a decade. They simply have no choice. Now explain to me how this helps the economy? How does having two more unemployed workers bring us out of the current economic woes?

Let’s take one more example, this one hypothetical (soon to be reality). Let’s even focus on the much hated by the left, evil Walmart. Obama’s tax hikes raises taxes on Walmart and the evil rich CEOs. Now, a roll of toilet paper goes up, they lay-off employees, and freeze hiring. Good job Obama, you’ve done it again.

Americans, businesses, big and small, are what our economy is built on. When you tax the “rich,” those taxes get passed off to you, the little guy. A lot of you need to wise up and stop falling for the left’s class warfare tactics. Oppose this massive budget.

A Cleaner, Better Tomorrow

Without question, "going green" has defined the first decade of 2000. Around the world, people of all nationalities are looking to for better waste management to help clean up the environment. In the United States, President Barrack Obama has included billions in renewable energy and new ways of going green continue to surface.

Veolia environmental services is leading the way for waste management Sydney by working with local agencies and the community to sponsor Clean Up Australia Day on March 1, 2009. Through this sponsorship, Veolia hopes to raise awareness of environmental issues through community education and awareness.

Although located in Australia, Veolia works towards environmental responsibility globally. Veolia provides recycling tips that follow the motto, “Reduce-Reuse-Recycle.” In this section, located on their website, Veolia provides several tips for the global community. The ideas are simple and practical, requiring little sacrifice. Thanks to the work being done by companies such as Veolia, we can all look forward to a cleaner, better tomorrow.

Take A Healthy Step Back

Thinking about what to blog about this week proved more difficult than usual. I don’t think I have ever been hit with such insanity from the political world , all at one time. This past week, The country has had to deal with the disgraceful Roland Burris, record government spending, auto bailouts, banking bailout, and now a bailout for Americans who have been unable to meet their obligations. Now, on top of all this, Obama wants to cut the deficit in half by raising taxes on those making over $250,000 (that’s the number today). Or as Obama calls Middle America, “The Rich.” So, in these hard economic times, after passing a farce of a stimulus plan that provides no help for the companies that drive our economy, Obama proposes we raise taxes on these same people. Rather than explain the ignorance of the events and Obama’s policies in his short run in the Presidency, I have decided to take a healthy step back.

A couple weeks ago in church, the pastor ended a sermon on the elements of relationships with a clip from Glenn Beck’s show, where he discusses the story of Irena Sendler.

Before you mimic the collective gasp that was heard in an otherwise silent sanctuary, remember, Rush Limbaugh was also defeated. In fact, I imagine none of us ever heard of Irena Sendler, and that should speak to us all.

Roland Burris Insults Your Intelligence

In my January 6, 2009 post, I discussed how both Roland Burris and then Illinois governor Blagojevich had disgraced themselves, Illinois, and the country. I described how any man or woman who would be willing to accept an appointment to the U.S. Senate from a man such as Blagojevich to be lacking character and honor.

It really is not that difficult to gauge the character of a man. People are defined by their actions. If Roland Burris had any honor or integrity, than he would have waited for an opportunity to be appointed by Blagojevich’s successor, given his, at the time, obvious upcoming impeachment. Instead, he accepted an appointment by a disgraced and shameless governor, and in addition, played the race card.

Now, Burris, knowing that it would eventually become public knowledge, “amended” his testimony to the Illinois legislature, now claiming he had spoken to Blagojevich’s brother three times. Allegedly, Blagojevich’s brother, on behalf of his campaign, tried to solicit 10,000 to Blagojevich’s campaign fund.

Burris’ strategy is simple. He wanted to become a senator, but knew he lacked the credentials and would not even be on the short list. Heck, he wasn’t even Blagojevich’s first pick to sell Obama’s vacant senate seat. Willing to sell what ever dignity he possessed for the job, he allowed himself to be used in Blagojevich’s crusade to embarrass himself by shunning Illinois and accepting the appointment by Blagojevich. Knowing that public knowledge of Blagojevich’s attempts to sell the position to him would eventually become public, he lied in front of the Illinois legislature, planning to simply “amend” his testimony claiming every politician’s favorite defense of, “I didn’t recall at the time.”

Burris’ defense that he did not recall simply insults the intelligence of every thinking man and woman. However, I doubt there won’t even be an investigation, despite those inevitable cries from Republicans. Democrats, although promising to clean up corruption, have done nothing but bring more of it to Washington.

Now, I am very critical of accusing anyone of lying without actual evidence, even politicians. Liberals love to hate Bush, claiming he lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Of course, they can cite no actual evidence of any sort to back up this claim; they simply claim it. This is particularly disgusting given democrats received the same intelligence as Bush who supported his claim that Iraq had stock piles of weapons. But liberals and their wiling accomplishes in the press are not interested, and you know what, that’s alright. You see, I believe in karma, and the American people will learn another hard lesson about democratic policies.

This brings me to my point in this post, which is a recurring one. The founders’ feared creating a new government that had too much power. Remember, the first American Patriots risked and sacrificed everything to fight free of the tyranny of King George, III. The first constitution, the Articles of Confederation, failed because the nation’s government was too weak, having almost no power over the states to enforce any taxation or dictate national policy. Understanding that a stronger national government was needed, but knowing that they must not create another king, the founders’ agreed to our current United States Constitution. This Constitution clearly places true power with the people who fought to secure their rights and freedom from an interfering government. This is the foundation of republican principles today; that the people should be free to pursue their own happiness and that government’s role is to protect these natural rights, never to interfere, even with the best of intentions. To this end, I implore my fellow American citizens to start paying real attention to what is going on. People of Illinois, Burris should enter the chamber of the senate each knowing his days are numbered. He should know the voters of Illinois will not accept his actions and will not be duped in his quest for power. I want to go on record that we are just beginning to learn of the corruption of Roland Burris. This is going to be saddening to watch as more about this man’s actions become public. Demand better.

Stimulus to Create or Save Three Million Jobs

What the heck does Obama’s assertion that his spending bill (this is the stimulus bill to the ignorant) will create or save three million jobs mean? This is as insane as Bill Clinton arguing what the meaning of “is,” is. What a bunch of junk.

This claim can not be disproved. There is no way for anyone to ever claim that Obama’s plan failed to create or save three million jobs. If just one new job is created, then Obama can claim success. If working Americans continue to lose their jobs his plan will still be proclaimed a success. If nothing happens then his plan also succeeds. The following scenarios will help you understand what I mean.

Scenario 1: One new job is created; shoveling poop from circus horses. (I apologize to those of you who shovel horse poop at a circus, but don't you have to wonder what went wrong in your life?)
My fellow Americans, I told you that my administration would bring change you can believe in. I told you that my stimulus package would result in saving or creating jobs. I stand before you today to say we have succeeded. Because of my stimulus package, three million and one jobs were saved. (President Obama at any point in the future)

Scenario 2: The economy remains stagnate; no change.
My fellow Americans, I told you that my administration would bring change you can believe in. I told you that my stimulus package would result in saving jobs. I stand before you today to say we have succeeded. Because of my stimulus package, 3 million jobs were saved. (President Obama at any point in the future)

Scenario 3: Three Million jobs are lost, America enters a deep depression.
My fellow Americans, I told you that my administration would bring change you can believe in. I told you that my stimulus package would result in saving jobs. I stand before you today to say we have succeeded. (You see, Obama can argue three million jobs were saved because without his stimulus, six million jobs would be lost instead of only three. (President Obama at any point in the future)

You see my friends; Obama’s claim to save or create three million jobs is absurd and cannot be proven a failure. Vice President Biden gives this plan a 30% chance of failure and today President Obama admitted his plan isn’t anywhere near perfect. Well for crying out loud, if you know going into something that it is not perfect, why not fix it first. Call me crazy, but what is wrong with creating a stimulus package that, at a minimum, you (as a President) believe is perfect. Can you imagine driving over a bridge that has a big sign saying, “It’s not perfect,” I doubt you would take that bridge; the consequences of failure would be disastrous.

We are being told to spend unprecedented amounts of tax payer dollars on mainly socialist programs. If we refuse, then Obama claims we risk delving into a depression we won’t be able to recover from (Oh no! I better vote for it or America will never recover). The playing on fears and the hardships many Americans are facing is shameful. Demand better.

Capitalism Shown At Its Best In This Economy

Capitalism: An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are privately or corporately owned and development is proportionate to the accumulation and reinvestment of profits gained in a free market (Dictionary.com).

Capitalism is the basis for the pursuit of happiness laid out in our founding documents. The idea that hard work will ultimately pay off drives America’s economy. Capitalism has allowed the United States to become, in a relatively short period of history, the most powerful, wealthy, and advanced civilization the world has ever seen. Because of capitalism, the United States has also become the greatest force for good around the world, second to none.

But this economy has given pause for many to ponder the value in our capitalistic system. President Obama and his democratic conspirators have seized upon this weak economy to promote a socialist agenda, having recently passed the massive spending bill in the House; this after promising to bring government deficit spending under control. The president cites greed in corporate America as the culprit and fiscal irresponsibility on the part of government (again, how is this latest stimulus package not fiscal irresponsibility?). President’s Obama takes every chance he gets to talk down this economy, setting the expectation that he will deliver on his campaign promises to a minimum and paving the way for more social government programs, all in the name of saving the economy and playing on your fear.

There is no question that the economy has put many American families in hard times, and that needs to be addressed. However, I want to preset the argument that the troubled economy of the past year proves that capitalism always works.

Not only does capitalism pay hard work and determination, favoring those who put in the hardest effort and take the greatest risks, but it also punishes greed. Those who invest widely in the market, like casino gambling, find themselves losing to the house. Corporate greed is a textbook example. Mortgage companies, willing to dole out sub prime mortgages as politicians do kisses for babies, have found themselves losers in the capitalistic system. You see, capitalism punished America’s greed. Government, corporate, and individual greed and irresponsibility were rampant across America, and so the downfall has been equally widespread. In a system other than capitalism, the greed and irresponsibility may continue to go unchecked. But because of our great capitalistic system, we can mend our ways and come out of this recession stronger. Even more, when we emerge from this recession stronger than ever, we will be so because we will have learned that greed and irresponsibility will not lead to the American dream.

Take heed Americans, we have allowed our government to run free in trying to stop this recession. We have allowed our fears to trump common sense. The government played a major role in creating this recession and can do nothing but make it worse. The government cannot support the massive amount of spending being passed right in front of our eyes in the name of economic stimulus. This is not capitalism; don’t let it teach us another hard lesson. Let companies go under and stop bailing them out. The economy is not going to collapse and plunge America into the abyss. Keep to the principles of capitalism and let’s work our way out of this mess.

Guantanamo Bay Detainee 220

No doubt you read about the killing of twelve in Mosul, Iraq this past April. Of course you did, the media loves to report any upheaval in the war on terrorism. But what wasn’t widely reported was that the murdering coward who blew himself up for the promise of sex was former Guantanamo Bay detainee 220, Abdallah Ali al-Ajmi.

Why was he released? He was released after a series of judgments stemming from the liberal attack on the detention of terrorists at Guantanamo Bay. The bottom line, he was released to the Kuwaiti government where he was, surprise, acquitted. He quickly returned to terrorism resulting in the death of twelve.

Americans, you need to get involved in what is going on in our country. President Obama has been in office only one week and already ordered the closing of Guantanamo Bay. Where do you think these terrorists will go? Do you want them in your backyard detention facility? Speaker Nancy Pelosi doesn’t; yet she supports the closing. You want to give them access to the courts that requires proof of guilt? That would require the release of classified intelligence gathering that aids the enemy. The CIA and NSA are not going to give that information out. This means the terrorists goes free. Do you want these terrorists released to the Kuwaiti and other terrorist supporting governments? We know how that turns out.

The terrorists at Guantanamo Bay are not innocent civilians plucked off the dirt paths of Afghanistan and Iraq. They are liars, cowards, and murderers. Here is sample of the lies detainee 220 gave at his tribunal (source: Wikipedia)

Al Ajmi: My role was [sic] in this Tabligh [sic] to call people to pray, to do good. To let people know that there is an end to this world so they can pray and do well.

Board Member: Is it a religious organization?

Al Ajmi: Yes it is

Board Member: Al Ajmi I believe that your dedication to your religion is genuine, what direction or path will that dedication take should you be released?

Al Ajmi: For peace.

Board Member: Ok, having said that I feel with that answer in mind than [sic] there is some sense of injustice on the part of your detention [sic]. Can that desire for peace and the anger you feel for the injustice coexist or live together?

Presiding Officer: Being detained here, does that affect your ideology of the peace concept that you just mentioned?

Al Ajmi: I don't blame the Americans for what they did by bringing us over here and detaining us over here. If I were in their place I would go out and look for terrorism all over the world like they did but I have a feeling it is going to be a just decision by the Americans. That is my feeling. I would do the same thing if I were in their shoes. I would capture the bad people, the terrorists and bring them over here and detain them.

I am concerned for America. President Obama has been in office one week. In this short time, he has endangered Americans by closing Guantanamo Bay with no plan for the terrorists detained there. He also picked, I’m sorry, but one ugly looking white carpet for the Oval Office (I get one cheap shot per blog).

The war on terrorism is alive and well; believe in that. Holding hands and roasting marshmallows over a campfire will not change that. I plead with you, as my fellow Americans, do not to allow our president to take this approach. Clinton tried the law-enforcement approach and the twin towers fell anyway. Bush saw terrorists for the fanatics they are and took action, his record in this area is indisputably flawless.; not one attack, but many foiled.

The Danger of Socialism

A socialistic government is one that seeks to level the playing field for all of its citizens through legislation. This type of government seeks to eliminate poverty and social classes. A socialist government seeks to create a literal utopia in the land it governs.

In order to accomplish this, a government must have the resources. This means money. This means taxes. If a government is to eliminate poverty, then it must either create better paying jobs for the unemployed and/or poor, or simply hand-out the life style they wish to promote. If a socialist government wishes to provide health care for its entire people, then they must provide the financial sources to do so for those who can not afford it. How do they do this? By taxing success. The more you make, the more your taxes skyrocket. This puts a virtual cap on wealth. So the message in France, the harder you work, the less you get. The less you work, the more you get. I’m sorry I don’t have a more poetic way of describing this, but that’s just stupid and France’s unemployment rate and stagnate economy proves it.

It would be hard to find anyone who would disagree (except for Islamic fascists who wish death to everyone but themselves) with the utopian goals of socialism; the elimination of poverty, high standard of living for all, health care for all, etc. However, as with most fantasy notions like eternal youth, world peace, and fairies, a utopian society only exist in make believe worlds like Never-Never Land. I like Never-Never Land, don’t you?

France, a bastion of socialism, by law, restricts an employee’s work week to 35 hours. Understand this is a federal mandate, not a negotiated deal with a union or a really super nice care bear of a company. The thinking is that it improves the quality of life for all of their citizens. Wrong! The result of this is a lack of productivity. Work that needs to get done doesn’t. Companies struggle to compete with the output of far more productive countries like the United States. Additionally, France is not the country you want to rely on to lead the world in new breakthroughs in science, medicine, technology, industry, etc. The mandated work week creates a malaise in the economy.

France, unbelievably, also has put in place rigorous guidelines on firing practices within private organizations. Notice the emphasis on private. For example, if you are a new employee under twenty-six, your job is essentially guaranteed by the government because your employer cannot fire you, even for gross incompetence. Again, this is to create a better life for a young generation trying oh so hard to get ahead. The result of this is obviously, incompetence in the workplace, but more, high unemployment rates, particularly among younger workers. Why would anyone want to hire an employee they can’t control because of government regulations? So, this Utopian idea of France’s is counterproductive to intent. Once more, when the government in 2006 tried to relax the asinine regulation of young employees, the kids went out and protested.

Recently, recognizing the stupidity of the firing regulations, France attempted to relax these regulations. The resulting protests by the children of France really illustrate the fundamental failure of socialism. Socialism produces citizens that feel they are owed something by their government without having to put into it. Here we have kids with no employment and have contributed nothing to their country, yet they believe they are owed a secure, well-paying job by their government, and their government agrees! You can just imagine these kids working their butts-off in the factory for their country in appreciation can’t you (sarcasm intended).

In addition to the two socialistic policies described, France also provides several weeks of government paid vacation as well as a year of paid maternity leave for each child. All of this, remember, comes from government revenues. The end result for France; Economic stagnation. This is not conjecture, but fact. France, somewhat recognizing the utter failure of their utopian society, recently voted Nicolas Sarkozy who ran on a platform of change in economic policies. France still rejects capitalism, the system that has brought the US to be the world leader in just about everything in the shortest period of time. America, the land of the free, where people from all over the world come for their medical care, jobs, and where millions of immigrants risk their lives to seek a better life.

Have no doubt America; the left in this country seeks to move this country to socialism. They are well funded and smart in their tactics. They seek to achieve one socialist policy at a time, often using the courts to enact what they can’t pass in the legislature; the Constitution be damned. Be on the lookout for policies that elevates the government as a solution to anything. Right now, President Obama seeks over one trillion dollars in government spending to solve our economic crisis. My friends, creating government jobs to solve an economic crisis is socialism. To pay for these jobs require taxpayer dollars, that’s your money people! President Obama ran on a platform of universal healthcare. This is socialism and already a proven failure in France. Obama’s tax cuts are anything but. A tax cut implies that a person pays taxes in which they could receive a cut and pay less. However, if you pay attention, you will notice these tax cuts go to people who do not pay any taxes to begin with. This makes Obama’s tax cuts welfare checks. Yes, socialism cheaply disguised to fool the uninformed and ignorant. It boggles the mind why anyone in this country would want to move away from a Constitution that has brought us unprecedented prosperity. The founding concept of the pursuit of happiness is unarguably capitalistic, not socialistic. Pay attention, be informed, and get involved. Keep this country alive and well. Too bad we can’t once again liberate France; this time from themselves.

The Tech Saavy Nokia N97 Phone

If you in the market for a new phone, check out the new Nokia N97. The N97 is designed for those of us who need the Internet on the go and have the savvy to take advantage of such features. Released at the Nokia World 2008 conference held in Barcelona, the N97 features a full QWERTY keyboard, tilt screen, and touch-screen technology

The designers of the new Nokia N97 had you in mind. What is it that you need your phone to do on the go, and in as many places as possible? Additional specifications include a battery designed to last for up to 1.5 days of constant audio, 4.5 or 4.5 hours of video. The phone includes 32 gigabytes of built in memory, but allows for SD expansion as well. They are particularly proud of their maps, where they have included a GPS system. Don’t worry; the basics are, of course, included with WiFi, Bluetooth, and HSDPA (High Speed Download Packet Access).

I think what I like the most is that the Nokia N97 also includes a 5 megapixel digital camera. This means that the pictures you take with this camera can actually be developed into something other than a blurry mess. Not to stop there, it is able to record video in DVD quality. So you really can use this phone as your camera.

This phone is not for your average teenager who wants a new cool phone. This is serious technology and it is certainly not for bargain shoppers. It retails somewhere around $600, but it comes with the goods. If you are looking for the Internet in your hands in more places, then check out the latest N97 from Nokia. And please, leave a comment and let us know what you think of the phone.

What President Obama has Accomplished

What you, the voters, have gotten for your buck so far.

  1. Guantanamo Bay is being shut down. This can in no way help America, only hurt it. Thank you liberals. Al Qaeda proudly announced that their now number 2 man was released from Guantanamo Bay last year. Thank you liberals. The governments response. . . we really need to keep an eye on these people after they are released. The stupidity. We know exactly where this guy is; he is planning the death of Americans. How about not letting them go in the first place, dummy!

  2. American taxpayers are now funding abortions. Oh, not for Americans yet, for international abortions. Obama reversed Bush's executive order today.

  3. Terrorist can no longer be interrogated in any productive way. Thank you liberals.
Not even a full week in office and look at the harm. Get with it America.

Stephen Colbert Gets Emotional Over Obama's Inauguration

Every once in a while someone captures the emotions we all feel. Yesterday, I experienced a litany of feelings. But, I forgot those feelings trying to figure out what the heck that "poem" meant. It had something to do with firewood and and dear crossing signs, I think.

However, this video from the Colbert report reminded me and I believe, captures what many American's felt as we watched out first black president take the Oaf, I mean oath of office.

Biden is Right - We WIll Be Attacked Again

I want to remind all of you when Barack Obama gave us a glance into his thinking on how to handle terrorism. "What we know, is that, in previous terrorist attacks -- for example, the first attack against the World Trade Center -- we were able to arrest those responsible, put them on trial. They are currently in U.S. prisons, incapacitated” (Barack Obama, June 16, 2008). He applauded Clinton’s policy of handling terrorism as a law enforcement issue! He thinks this was a successful strategy. Incredibly scary stuff.

Obama’s statements here have considerable inaccuracies. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a major financier of the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing, was not apprehended and went on to be the major architect of 9/11. Great job Bill. There were also other members of the group who were never brought to justice. One went on to Iraq where Saddam Hussein’s regime shielded him. Take some time and do a little research here and get informed. The policy of treating terrorist acts as a law enforcement issue is a major failed policy of the Clinton administration and now Obama is going back to it.

I am appalled that Obama feels that Clinton handled the first World Trade Center bombing in anything other than a disastrous way. Al Qaeda is a terrorist organization. These people kill themselves under the illusion that God has promised them sex in the afterlife. Yes, these people believe God will reward them with sex from 72 virgins for killing innocent men, women, and children. The whole concept of a terrorist organization is that the death or capture of any one individual has minimal effect on the group’s operations. For goodness sake, can democrats learn nothing from 9/11. They failed in 1993, we arrested and sentenced most of the “perpetrators,” and we succeeded in…nothing. The trade centers go down on 9/11 along with over 2,000 American lives.

Clinton was an absolute disaster as the President of the United States responsible for the safety of its citizens. Congratulations America, Obama is going to arrest “perpetrators” and give them access to the courts. Of course, you don’t have a perpetrator until a crime has been committed. Take comfort in knowing that if you are your loved ones are killed in a terrorist act, Obama will not rest until the people responsible are sentenced to life in prison; that is if they don’t get off on a technicality.

Today, a pentagon report informs us that sixty-one of the terrorists released from Guantanamo Bay have reverted back to terrorists activities. Why were they released? Because of legal action taken by liberals. Good job liberals. Among the terrorists that Obama will have to decide what to do with is Mohammed al-Qahtani, the 20th hijacker. He was allegedly “tortured,” and so he can’t be tried in court. By “torture,” liberals mean this terrorist had to wear underwear on his head, have dogs bark at him, be seen naked by a woman, listen to loud music, and suffer sleep deprivation. My neighbor’s dog barks all day in the backyard, I am subject to annoying sub woofer bass sounds that feel like aftershocks from an earthquake from some punks 1997 Toyota Camry with a giant spoiler, my job constantly deprived me of sleep, and many today would like nothing more than to find a woman willing to see them naked. According to liberals, I am being tortured as well. Good job liberals.

Osama Bin Laden asks a question today in his latest death to the infidels recording that should give us all pause. He asks if the United States will remain capable of fighting him [terrorism] after Bush? Based on what Obama has said, I don’t think so.

Just as a healthy reminder of other disastrous national security policy changes Obama has promised, see the Obama ad below.

Shop Online Better, Faster, and Easier

Do you notice how owners of hybrid vehicles like the Prius seem to have a more than a little hint of elitism in their ways? Well, I have the same pompousness knowing that I didn’t visit one shopping mall, plaza, or gift shop this past Christmas season. I did all of my shopping exclusively online. Like the increased cost to own a hybrid, there is one drawback to shopping online, getting the best price. I am still surfing the Internet to see if I got the best price on my Nintendo Wii, a set of golf clubs, digital camera, and a digital picture frame. This is in addition to the time I put in looking for the best prices when I initially bought these items. Today, however, the time I spend on this task has dramatically decreased. This is thanks to ShopWiki.

What ShopWiki does for me is to search all the online stores for the products I want, listing all the prices out there. I can also get new ideas by searching through the categories. For example, for the Kodak digital camera I bought for Christmas, I can simply go to the category Electronics, and then the subcategory of Cameras. The information I get is astounding.

ShopWiki works just like search engines by crawling the Internet. This crawling keeps the results you get fresh. Also making ShopWiki’s format unique is that the results are not simply paid advertisements, which is what you generally get on traditional shopping websites. You get results from any website selling the product you are looking for.

The second best part about ShopWiki.com is the wiki! For those of you still confused or in the dark about a wiki, let me give you the short of it. A wiki is Internet content that can be edited online by any user. This literally allows the world to contribute to a single piece of content online. When it comes to buying products and services, let’s face it, there is nothing more valuable then reviews and information from those who have already purchased the product and from those who are experts. Each product on ShopWiki provides a detailed description of the product. This is really helpful when comparing products like the Playstation 3 to the Nintendo Wii to the Xbox 360. Did you know Playstation 3 has a built-in Blue Ray player, the Xbox 360 an HD-DVD player and the Wii offers no DVD playback? Given I purchased both a Blue Ray player and Wii, I could have saved quite a bit of money by just purchasing the Playstation 3.

You definitely want to add shopwiki.com to your list of hot new sites to give a try. There is no cost associated with the site and it is not cluttered with annoying pop-up ads. All the information you need is for your online shopping needs is at your fingertips

Rod Blagojevich and Roland Burris- Disgraceful Behavior

Roland Burris, disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich’s pick to fill Barack Obama’s vacant senate seat is going to be hard to stop. Democrats have vowed not to seat him, but they have an uphill fight given the appointment is legal, albeit pathetic. Blago has the right as governor to fill Obama’s vacant seat and he exercised that right. Although Harry Reid denied Burris a seat today, he and his fellow democrats will eventually falter and allow him in.

It makes no difference that Roland Burris appears to have a clean record and there is no reason to believe he accepted anything from Blago for the appointment. The question that you need to be asking yourself is…what honorable man or woman would accept this appointment from a disgraced governor? You know the answer. Roland Burris, by accepting Blago’s nod has disgraced himself in the process. I’m sorry, but any man willing to accept the appointment from Blago is a desperate individual.

If any of these two men had an ounce of dignity or respect for their state and country remaining, here is how they would have behaved and still gotten their wishes. Blago holds a press conference and informs Illinois that although he disagrees with the charges against him, he recognizes the taint this would put on any senate appointment. He would then declare the creation of a commission comprised of democratic Illinois congressmen and women to put forth a recommendation for the vacant senate. Blago would then agree to appoint this recommendation. Thus, Blago can continue to fight in his defense, but respect the situation Illinois has been put in, justly or not. If Burris, then, was truly a wise choice and the best choice, then the commission would recommend him and he would fill the vacant seat with honor, not disgrace. But Blago is a selfish man and Burris knows this is his only route to power. So, Blago whines about his gubernatorial rights and he and Burris play the race card. By the way, how despicable is it for Burris and Blago to play the race card? I hope those with influence stand up against the ignorance of appointing a senator based on race alone, particularly when the nation will be run by a black president and the appointee is coming from Blago. This behavior, I believe, is what truly does damage to legitimate concerns of racial discrimination; it gets lost in the ridiculous political ones that run far and wide, and look which side of the isle it is coming from?

Despite all this, the true power remains with you, the voters. Not just the voters in Illinois, but the country. Democrats have decried Cheney, Bush, Delay, etc., of ethics violations or worse. Democrats cry for reform. Before Obama has even taken office, there are scandals involving Blago (selling a senate seat), Clinton (campaign donors), Rahm (knowledge of Blago), Richardson (just like Blago’s problems), and Obama (AACORN, Bill Ayers ) himself, among others. Keep in mind here that the press is not going report this information. Bill Richardson has withdrawn himself from consideration for Commerce Secretary. This is all the mainstream press reports. This is a huge story not being reported. Because of this sad bias, you, the people, must be responsible for staying informed. This means getting information from more than one liberal source. Watch the Fox News channel or visit their website. Listen to or read Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh among others. Then go read the mainstream press. Finally, use your brain to analyze and evaluate what you learn. If you’re honest with yourself, you will be shocked. I am not talking about changing your liberal fantasy-based ideas. I am talking about fairly evaluating the facts and truly understanding what is going on around you. Then vote intelligently and not down a party line. I am truly curious to see how liberals vote next go around when Burris comes up for election and Blago as well. How about Franken? Will liberals hold them accountable for their behavior, or excuse it?

Online Classified Ads Site

A new online classified ads site called rentlocalstuff.com allows advertisers to purchase ad space on a national and local level to sell or rent their products or services. Rentlocalstuff.com allows users to search by state, then by community, refining the search so it only displays the most relevant results.

Rentlocalstuff.com also offers individual and corporate accounts to help meet your unique needs. Rentlocalstuff.com has a simple, yet effective design.

Focus on the Positives This New Year

I was reading Bill O’Reilly’s book A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity, and in his book, he describes his childhood of the 1950s and 1960s. As I am reading, I focus on the simplicity of childhood back then and I focus on my own childhood. Like O’Reilly, I went out with the neighborhood kids and played until dark (well, actually past dark because of flash light tag). When I went outside, I roamed the neighborhood, from house to house for street hockey and tag. Never once was I concerned with my safety. Though my parents didn’t particularly care for the fact that I was roaming the neighborhood, I was a good kid and there were eyes all over the place, so they gave up that battle. However, the more that I think about the 1990s and childhood, I am saddened by the fact that my future children will not be able to experience those kinds of days. Gone are the days of roaming the neighborhood since parents are mainly focused on their own children. Gone are the days of being able to stay out to midnight and play with your friends, since now a creepy predator lurks behind every tree. Gone are the days where the neighborhood parents watched out for all the kids, not just their own.

Since the days of the past are gone, what kind of society are we living in today? We are living in a self-centered society where people are only worried about the good for themselves. The simple gestures of kindness are gone. Whatever happened to people holding the door open for other people with their hands full? Whatever happened to people chit-chatting about how their families are doing? Those times are gone. Instead, we are filled with the awareness that people are evil and will do harm to you when given the chance. Is this a bleak outlook on society? Definitely. However, the media has pummeled us with so much negativity that it is hard to see the positives in it. Look at the media’s focus. Whenever there is a republican president that they do not like (which is all of them), they focus on negatives. When Obama walked on to the picture, they make him look like a saint (remember Chris Mathews' tingle?). The liberal media picks and chooses the scope of their reporting. When was the last time that you heard something good on the news? For example, we always hear when stocks plummet, but how come we never hear when they go back up?

Today, on this 1st day of 2009, make a choice. Make a choice to shed more positive influences in this world. Hold a door open for someone who has a lot in his or her hands or look for positives in the news. But, be a positive change. Only you can do that- not the government.
