Charity

October 31, 2008

Obama claims that McCain is making selfishness a virtue.  What a joke.  What a pile of BS.  Do we need any more proof this guy believes and advocates socialism?  He tries to avoid this label by spewing out misdirections like this that actually make YOU out to be the bad guy. 

Let me give you an example.  If your office decided to help out a local food bank and asked everyone to contribute some money to it would anyone have an issue with that?  Probably not.  Now, what if they came to you when you didn’t give any money and said, in front of everyone, “I see you didn’t give any money.  Why are you being so selfish and greedy?”  Now, you would probably take issue with that.  It’s rude and embarrassing and just wrong.  That is exactly what Obama is doing when he says things like this.

Ok, let’s take it a step further.  Not only does your boss say that, but he also starts to take money from your paycheck and give it to the food bank for you.  Now, let me ask you, is THAT charity?  You know, I can give $10.00 to Govco and see only $1.50 go to the actually person who needs it OR I can give to a thoroughly vetted charity of my choice and see $9.99 go to that person who needs it.

Socialism.  Just vote nobama.

Responsibility

October 28, 2008

Here is a link about a woman who is chaining herself to her home of 19 years to try to avoid foreclosure.  She took out a loan on an adjustable rate mortgage that, well, adjusted.  She now cannot pay her mortgage so, according the contract she signed, the bank now will take possession of her home. 

Now, while I feel for this family, what lesson will she possibly learn if the bank just says “Ok, that’s fine.  Don’t pay us anymore.  Just live there free.”  Or, what condition will the bank be in if they do that to everyone?  It’s high time people start stepping up and taking personal accountability for their actions however we live in a world where more and more it becomes “It’s not my fault” mentality.  Some kid takes a bottle and smashes it over their friends head and their parents blame TV or a woman is arrested for DUI and she blames the bartender.  It’s all the same.  No responsibility.

Now, on another note, the fact she is blaming the bank for doing their job, for enforcing the contract she signed, really burns me up.  It’s the same with those wacky HOA’s around the country.  Yeah, I think they cross the line many times but in 99.9% of the cases, the homeowner knew the kind of HOA they were moving into when they bought the house.  In the same way, the bank is only protecting it’s asset and enforcing the contract. 

People just don’t seem to grasp this concept of a business doing it’s job.  Take the rock star John Cougar.  Back in the 80’s he had a popular song called “Rain on the Scarecrow” about farm foreclosures.  I like the song one verse goes:

The crops we grew last summer weren’t enough to pay the loans
Couldn’t buy the seed to plant this spring and the
Farmers Bank foreclosed
Called my old friend Schepman up to auction off the land
He said John it’s just my job and I hope you understand
Hey calling it your job ol’ hoss sure don’t make it right
But if you want me to I’ll say a prayer for your soul tonight

So, if I am reading that right, he is ripping on this man from the bank for doing his job.  The part about saying a prayer for your soul is what gets me.  So, this guy doesn’t foreclosure and then he loses HIS job.  When the song came out I remember asking my Dad about it and he said usually, with these farms, the bank has given them every chance in the world and finally, they have to foreclosure.  After getting into the mortgage business, I found that true (in most cases).  Fact is, the bank loses money when they foreclosure so they would rather NOT go to plan B if they don’t have to.

Anyway, I have asked for it before but can we get more personal responsibility and accountability in this country?

Oh, by the way, if you watch the video of that woman you will find the reporter at the end stating that this woman took out $300,000 from her last loan for a failed business.  Nice.

Softball

October 27, 2008

Looks like the Obama campaign prefers lame, easy, softball questions that never really address anything rather than hard hitting questions that get to the point and demand an answer.  Check this out.  After Biden was asked some pretty direct questions the campaign cancelled the scheduled interview with his wife:

“This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

Nice.  What’s wrong with the Democrats?  Why do they run away like scared deer whenever reporters actually ask good questions?  Why do they cower in the corner when Fox News shows up?  The reason is that they know that if they have to actually answer questions like these they would lose in a huge landslide.  The ONLY way they can win any election is by lying, cheating and avoiding the real questions and issues.

We here on the staff call for a moratorium on any more biased, softball questions from the media to Democratic candidates.  Yeah, I know…hell will freeze over first but hey, it’s worth a try!

More Democrat Socialism

October 24, 2008

Check out what Biden had to say:

Biden took direct aim at executives who draw big salaries while leading failed companies where employees are losing pensions. “Their pensions go first,” he told a roaring crowd.

So, it’s no longer your money.  It’s Govco’s to do with as they please.  I guess they will want to “spread it around” as Obama put it. 

Try as you might, you cannot avoid the basic fact that Obama, Biden and the rest of Democratic party support socialist ideas.  How about a moratorium on socialism in Govco?

Hearings on Failure

October 21, 2008

So, the Dems are waiting until AFTER the election to hold meetings on the failure of Fannie and Freddie.  Gee, why is that? Could it be…maybe…just maybe because it was due to THEIR lack of oversight that we are in this mess?  Hmmmmm….I wonder…

Kid Leashes

October 20, 2008

I have been meaning to post on this for a loooooong time but forgot about it until I saw this atrocity today.  What sort of moron parent puts their kid on a friggin’ leash??  Are you THAT pathetic and lazy of a parent that you gotta leash your kid?  Is he/she that wild that you gotta go the zoo route and attach a rope to them?  What’s next, the pitbull muzzle? 

You know what this is don’t you? It’s the wussification of America.  These parents are so scared their little Johnnie is going to run, heaven forbid, five feet away from them.  They are frightened that some other kid is going to brush against them and maybe pass on a germ or something.   Either that or they are just too damn lazy to watch their kid or hand their hand.

Get a life, learn how to be a parent and get your kid off the leash or, better yet, just stay at home!

Security Clearance

October 20, 2008

Here is a great point by Neal Boortz:

“You can judge a man’s character by the type of people he surrounds himself with. Look at Obama. You have William Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko. If Obama were applying for a security clearance these associations would probably disqualify him. That’s right. This may be the first time in history that the President of the United States wouldn’t qualify for a security clearance if he were a private citizen.”

Quote of the day

From The View:

JOY BEHAR, co-host: “Joe the Plumber doesn’t have a business yet, he’s fantasizing about a business he’s going to have.”

ELIZABETH HASSELBECK, co-host: “Fantasizing?! This is a man who’s trying to realize his hard work.”

BEHAR: “Excuse me! Fantasizing is a very legitimate term to describe somebody who’s predicting the future for themselves. Creative visualization, okay.”

So, Joy, I guess kids who go to college shouldn’t think about what they want to do after college.  I mean, somone going to Medical School shouldn’t even think much less talk about being a Doctor someday.  What are you doing for Christmas Joy?  Are you planning on traveling to see family? Better not.  After all, it’s just a fantasy that you will actually do that.

Typical Liberal.  They scoff at people who try to better themselves.  After all, that’s what Govco is for.

Maybe I should change this to idiot of the day.

Obama:

 “I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls … If I were watching Fox News, I wouldn’t vote for me, right? Because the way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that? I guess the point I’m making … is that there is an entire industry now, an entire apparatus, designed to perpetuate this cultural schism, and it’s powerful.”

Sooooooooo one news channel is taking you down a few points.  Huh.  That is a pretty powerful TV station.  Gee, I wonder…how in the world does any republican ever get elected when over 95% of the media (that includes not only TV but newspapers and magazines) are in the tank for the liberals. 

What a joke.  Let’s get a moratorium on Liberals who whine about the unfair media.  They have NOTHING to whine about.

Voter Fraud

October 16, 2008

Just read an article on how some 200,000 Ohio voters have discrepancies in their records for voting.  A court of appeals sided with the GOP and ordered the Secretary of State to set up a system to provide those names to county election boards. 

Seems fair.  I mean, after Florida in 2000 and other instances of fraud around the country, isn’t it just common sense to make sure that only people registered should vote and only vote once?  Well, the Ohio Secretary of State, a Democrat mind you, doesn’t think so.  She is concerned that the ruling is a veiled attempt to disenfranchise voters.    Oh, give me a friggin’ break!!  What a bunch of BS.  Whenever the GOP tries to make the system fair with things such as Voter ID cards or just simply re-checking records, we get the tired old screams of “Racism!” or “Disenfranchisement!”.  Please.  Here is what Julian Bond, chairman of the NAACP said recently of the GOP’s attempt at investigating ACORN:

“Republicans have practiced an assortment of subtle and overt methods to suppress and smother voter registration and turnout”

It’s funny, really.  the majority of voter fraud in the U.S. over the past, say, 50 years, have been Democratic voter fraud.  From dead people voting in Chicago back in the 60’s to ACORN and their current scandals, Democrats have been chest deep in making sure that cheat.  It’s really the only way they can pull off wins.  

How can anyone be against making sure only registered voters can vote and that they are allowed to vote?  Um..that would be the people who cheat.
