  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Palin – She’s What D.C. Needs

Posted by rightwinger on August 30, 2008

Her son enlisted in the Army and will soon be deployed to Iraq.  A true patriot and knows that freedom is not free.  As mayor she wanted to stop wasteful spending, cut property taxes, and put the people first.  She was appointed to the ethics commissioner of the Alaska oil and conservation commission.  She found and fought corruption in this post.

Palin made her name in part by backing tough ethical standards for politicians. During the first legislative session after her election as governor, her administration passed a state ethics law overhaul.

Michelle Obama’s speech: Update Saul Alinsky’s Son Agrees

Posted by rightwinger on August 27, 2008

Update: From Saul Alinsky’s son:

Barack Obama’s training in Chicago by the great community organizers is showing its effectiveness. It is an amazingly powerful format, and the method of my late father always works to get the message out and get the supporters on board. When executed meticulously and thoughtfully, it is a powerful strategy for initiating change and making it really happen. Obama learned his lesson well.

I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.

Thanks to Gateway Pundit we found out that Michelle Obama’s speech quoted from a marxist book titled Rules for Radical. Should we be surprised? Remember when she said 2 times that she was, “For the first time I am really proud of my country.” And, in the second speech she said, “For the first time I am proud of my country.” Here is a quote from Michelle Obama:

“Barack stood up that day,” talking about a visit to Chicago neighborhoods, “and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be…”

Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals:

“The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive — but real — allies of the Haves…The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means… The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.

And, “All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do – that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.”

From National Review’s September 1st issue “Who Is Barack Obama?” by Michael Gledhill. Here is a quote from Obama’s 1995 book Dreams:

[Black awareness] hadn’t arisen simply from struggles with pestilence or drought, or even mere poverty. [It] had arisen out of a very particular experience with hate [of whites toward blacks]. That hate hadn’t gone away; it formed a counternarrative buried deep within each person and at the center of which stood white people – some cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.

Obama’s tax philosophy

Posted by rightwinger on August 25, 2008

Sounds like Socialism to me. Its good old wealth distribution. Warren Buffet probably has money all over the world. He’s like the second wealthiest person in the world. He doesn’t care if taxes hit 90%. Thanks Warren for impeding my chance at the American Dream, if Obama gets his way.  Do you think 90% is not possible?  Check out the historical tax rates before Reagan took office:  Historical Tax Rates.

“If you talk to Warren, he’ll tell you his preference is not to meddle in the economy at all — let the market work, however way it’s going to work, and then just tax the heck out of people at the end and just redistribute it,” Obama said. “That way you’re not impeding efficiency, and you’re achieving equity on the back end.”

Obama’s Economy

Posted by rightwinger on August 22, 2008

Obama has proposed increases in every major federal tax. He has proposed to increase individual income taxes, with the top rate to rise to almost 40 percent. He has proposed to increase the top capital-gains tax rate by 33 percent. He has proposed the same for the top tax rate on dividends. He has proposed to increase payroll taxes, with a rate increase of 16 percent to 32 percent for workers earning over $250,000 a year. He has proposed to reinstate the death tax (estate tax), now phasing out under current law, with a top rate of 45 percent. He has proposed several increases in corporate taxes, including a so-called windfall-profits tax on oil.

Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Mundell has written that if such tax increases are adopted, the U.S. economy will suffer “a deep recession, a nosedive,” and the dollar will decline further. Amity Shlaes, author of The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression, claims Obama has proposed the exact same policy mix that led to the depression of the 1930s. During the primaries, Obama railed against free trade, proposing even to renegotiate free-trade agreements with our top two trading partners, Canada and Mexico. He has opposed the Columbian Free Trade Agreement, even though it primarily removes tariffs on American exports to that country, with barriers to Columbian exports to America already almost all removed under the Andean Trade Preferences Act.

The Bear is Back

Posted by rightwinger on August 20, 2008

The post-Cold War world, the New World Order, ended with authority on Aug. 8, 2008, when Russia and Georgia went to war. Certainly, this war was not in itself of major significance, and a very good case can be made that the New World Order actually started coming apart on Sept. 11, 2001. But it was on Aug. 8 that a nation-state, Russia, attacked another nation-state, Georgia, out of fear of the intentions of a third nation-state, the United States. This causes us to begin thinking about the Real World Order.

Hazards of Natural Oil Seepage and Pros of Oil Drilling

Posted by rightwinger on August 19, 2008

Wow! drilling is actually good for the environment??? Drilling actually lessens tar on the beach from natural oil seepage. In addition, global methane atmospheric concentrations have been declining for the past 20 years due to drilling. The natural seepage is actually worse for the environment than drilling. Wait a minute has the University of California at Santa Barbra been paid off by Exxon??? Nope. This is real science check out the articles and papers for yourself.

Next time you step on a glob of tar on a beach in Santa Barbara County, you can thank the oil companies that it isn’t a bigger glob. The same is true around the world, on other beaches where off-shore oil drilling occurs, say scientists, although Santa Barbara’s oil seeps are thought to be among the leakiest.

The researchers state that the production rate of these naturally-occurring reactive organic gases is equal to twice the emission rate from all the on-road vehicle traffic in Santa Barbara County in 1990.

According to the articles, studies of the area around [drilling] Platform Holly showed a 50 percent decrease in natural seepage over 22 years. The researchers show that as the oil was pumped out the reservoir, pressure that drives the seepage dropped.

They continue, “For example if the 50 percent reduction in natural seepage rate that occurred around Platform Holly also occurred due to future oil production from the oil field beneath the La Goleta seep, this would result in a reduction in nonmethane hydrocarbon emission rates equivalent to removing half of the on-road vehicle traffic from Santa Barbara County. In addition, a 50 percent reduction in seepage from the La Goleta seep would remove about 25 barrels of oil per day from the sea surface, which in turn would result in a 15 percent reduction in the amount of tar found on Santa Barbara beaches.”

They conclude by saying that the rate of increase of global methane atmospheric concentrations has been declining for the past 20 years, and that a “worldwide decrease in natural hydrocarbon seepage related to onshore and offshore oil production may be causing a global reduction in natural methane emission rates.”

Read the article for yourself.

Unlike beach tar accumulation studies associated with oil spills or on beaches near heavy ship traffic, which generally have a transient source, natural seepage is a longterm chronic oil spill, albeit with variability in emissions on time scales from tidal (Leifer and Wilson, 2007) to
decadal (Boles et al., 2001).

Obama on When Life Begins

Posted by rightwinger on August 18, 2008

The no answer from Obama. Obviously its not when the baby has been born because he voted down three times for babies that are born alive via a botched abortion to not be given aid and be left to die.

But Obama’s record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too close to infanticide.” Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” because of a crisis pregnancy — hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life.
