WITH THE GOVERNMENT GUARANTEEING $5 TRILLION DOLLARS IN THE LAST QUARTER, THE WAR ON IRAQ IS LOOKING LIKE A RED-LIGHT SPECIAL

This is what you get when you head down the road to Socialism, central planning, and out-of-control do-gooder government regulations and spending.

Five trillion dollars and, according to news reports, there has been no oversight. What's more, instead of taking care of those bad mortgage loans when there was that BIG RUSH before the election, they've changed their minds and are instead pumping the money into banks and lending institutions.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/12/AR2008111202846_pf.html

When liberal Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Charles Schumer are smiling, you know we are in trouble.

They LOVE it! They smell the power!

Hey, I thought they had only days to stop the bleeding! Have you checked the stock market lately? How many people do you know have been laid off?

Businesses are lining up as so many of us predicted, and now we have the spectacle of politicians and bureaucrats deciding who will "succeed" and who will not.

The very people who drove this economy to its knees are talking trash and compounding the problems they created, and expecting the American people to pay for their sins!

New York is anticipating 15% income tax increases. Chicago is going bankrupt and Mayor Daley is warning of widespread layoffs. California, with a budget larger than the vast majority of countries in the world, is looking for a bailout too.

GE, I see, is getting a $140 billion bailout, along with bailouts for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Bear Stearns, AMEX, AIG, now GM and the UAW, and others I'm getting tired of keeping track of.

Oh, and now the politicians want a stake (ownership) in these corporations! Reemember when Maxine Waters threatened to "socialize" the oil industry? And people ridiculed me when I warned about what was coming!

GE, by the way, owns NBC, which is one of the biggest promoters of the global warming scam.

This is all stuff I've mentioned before, but are you starting to connect the dots yet?

Wait until you have 20-30 million illegal immigrants demanding amnesty and getting their cut of the pie. They may have to come up with another phrase to replace "spread the wealth".

But it won't affect you, will it? Only the "rich" will pay. *lol*

Government has been the problem and now the fox is in charge of the hen-house.

Big Brother - Nanny State government!

You wanted it. You begged for it. You've got it. Wait until 2009. With the news media losing their audience, they'll need a bailout too. I wonder how that'll affect their objectivity?

That was a joke.

Fun, isn't it?

Trying to make Obama-voters feel bad?
Obama-voters will never feel bad. Should unemployment escalate, brownouts become a way of life at the repression of local energy supplies and enforcing moronic carbon footprint laws, the economy toileting in baseless cash, Obama's blackshirt 'civilian force' answerable only to him keeping everyone in line, taxes escalating to 70 or 80 percent, 401k and other retirement savings nationalized... whatever. It doesn't matter. They voted for Obama for 1]-He's black [history, and all that nonsense], 2]-He's not Bush [Bush-hatred goes a long way], and 3]-He's eloquent. When all that, or more, bad stuff happens, Obama will still be black, he'll still be not-Bush, and he will still be eloquently preaching to the faithful that it was all Bush's fault.

Re: Trying to make Obama-voters feel bad?
I've been asking the question of where all that anger and rage will go for some time. Many of these people, IMHO, are full of anger as their natural state, and stems from their own dissatisfaction with themselves and their own lives. My guess is
it'll continue and be directed at anyone who disagrees with them and especially anyone who brings truth to light.

The joke was funny to me. I thought you might be interesed in this: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/13/arts/television/13hoax.html?em

I told Mr. Ed that you called this months ago. Just so you know, my vote wasn't based on media representation. This state was a McCain state all the way.

there's no free lunch, is there?
Yeah, I know. There are 3-4 basic reasons people voted the way they did and I accept them all as part of the democratic system.

That said, I am stunned at the level and breadth of what was done to get Barack Obama elected and what this means once we get past the "historical" significance of this election.

BTW, America could and would have elected a minority president in any of the last 3-4 elections or more had there been a good candidate ... Colin Powell for example, who unfortunately has now been diminished in my eyes.

I actually pretty much predicted almost every aspect of this election, from how John McCain would be nominated through manipulation of the open primary process and Obama's perceived shift to the middle and revelations of his dubious past.

What I didn't count on was the press' continued bias and total cover for the candidate they selected, the promotion of the story they had pre-written, their cooperation in convincing people that the economic crisis was the fault of Republicans when it was Democrats that created the crisis with their coercion in forcing banks to write bad loans and having Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac buy them up so that we are now trillions of dollars in debt, and a total lack of concern or awareness of what has been going on by the majority of the American electorate.

I could go on.

Rampant voter registration fraud. Acorn and their surrogates now trying to steal a Senatorial election in Minnesota. You are about to be bombarded by the DNC smear machine and community activist thugs in Georgia in an attempt to steal another election.

As Stalin said, "It's not the vote, it's who counts the vote."

Or something like that.

So much horror on the horizon and people are oblivious.

These are very disturbing times. I have truly never seen anything like it and never, in my wildest imagination, thought something like this could happen. Free speech itself is now under assault. The new fascism is here and it's coming from the left. Amazing!

People simply don't know their history and that it does, indeed, repeat itself, and that the things they think they want don't work and they are being played. As long as they get their "free" goodies they'll be happy, no matter the cost.

I'll still be my usual happy contented self, appreciative of the gift of life, and thankful I still have a serviceable working mind and imagination, and fortunate that there are still people who accept me as I am no matter how many times I challenge them and, sometimes, poke them in the ribs.

Some people can't accept honesty and, yes, truth, even run away or try to keep the facts from being exposed to the light. They look upon anything that diminishes their arguments or beliefs as assault and betrayal.

It is all done with total honesty, a good heart, and a desire for good, at least when it comes from here.

Oh, I forgot.

I'd recommend you read this column by the Shelby Steele:

http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-steele5-2008nov05,0,6553798.story

Steele and Thomas Sowell, who are both African American, are two of my favorite thinkers and political writers.

Camille Paglia, who is about as liberal a feminist as you can imagine, is another favorite of mine.

She is brilliant and a wonderful writer, although I disagree with her on many many issues.

However, she is intellectually honest in addition to being a good writer.

Check out her last article where she (finally) finds out about Bill Ayers and his connection to Barack Obama, as well as her opinion of Sarah Palin:

http://www.salon.com/opinion/paglia/2008/11/12/palin/

Unfortunately, although she admits she originally "dismissed" the Ayers stuff out of hand, she probably still doesn't know the extent of Ayers' ideology and what he actually stands for today.

Hopefully, as she will now be attacked from her friends on the left, her eyes will open wide as to who she's been palling around with. ;-)
