Barbara West, of one of my hometown local TV stations (WFTV) in Central Florida, asks Biden the questions that he and Obama SHOULD be getting asked!  This is what the rest of the mainstream media is willfully ignoring!  I think I have a new hero.  Check it out:

I’ve wanted to write some more over the last few days, but I haven’t really been able to bring myself to do it because I have, more or less, been a bit down due to the way the election seems to be shaping up.  I’m still not a McCain fan, but my abhorrence for the liberal and socialist views of the Obama campaign has continued to grow.  I would rather McCain be president than Obama.  But I’m also irritated by McCain’s apparent unwillingness to stick it to Obama on the things that really matter.  Instead, during a town hall meeting in which many of his supporters were angry with him for not strongly going after Obama, he just told them that Obama was a good man and that they didn’t have anything to be afraid of with him as president.  That sounds like the words of a man who has all but given up.  I haven’t yet had a chance to watch the debate tonight (it’s on DVR), but I hope he proves me wrong.

So, all of that said, there are things I’ve wanted to write about, but I just haven’t had it in me to do so.  So, for now, these few things I’d like to share with you will have to suffice:

  • Just in case anyone is still in doubt regarding whether Obama really is a socialist, read this: Obama’s Socialist Agenda—Is Anyone Listening?
  • Just in case anyone still thinks Joe Biden actually  does know what he is talking about, see here how he doesn’t even know the responsibilities of the vice-president (and read all of the other factual mistakes he has made): Did Biden Get It Wrong?  You Betcha
  • Socialism explained so that just about anybody can understand it (substitute “conservative” for “Republican” in the story since Republicans don’t have the best track record anymore either): Father and daughter talk politics
  • The income tax system explained so that just about anybody can understand it (and an explanation that shows why we need a fairer tax system): Income Tax Explained
  • These are the people canceling out your votes:
  • Just in case you were wondering who the Messiah is, Louis Farrakhan can fill you in:
  • Brainwashing much?  (the beginning to this video is a little silly, but the part with the militant kids dedicated to Obama is a little scary and sad):

So now it looks like the Senate is going to pass a revised bailout proposal, still costing hundreds of billions of dollars.  What has changed?  Oh, they have added lots of “sweeteners” to the deal, to make it more appealing to Senators who might have voted against it.  John McCain, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden are all likely going to vote for the bill … as are my two Senators from Tennessee, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker.

As it is, I know for a fact I will not vote for Alexander or Corker next election cycle if this passes.  I’m not saying I’ll vote for their liberal opponents, but, at the very least, I will vote third party or not vote at all in those races if no third party candidates are available.

I’m more concerned with the presidential race.  I really feel like I cannot vote for people who are not representing my interests, and the fact that McCain is voting for this is making me sick to my stomach right now.  I was actually coming around and looking forward to voting for him in November, but now I’m thinking I might have to go back to my original plan of voting for Ron Paul as a write-in candidate.  I don’t know.  The only comfort I have is that I won’t actually be voting for McCain to represent me.  He is running to be the president, and, as such, he is not running to be a representative for me in government.  He is running to lead the government.  But I still have to take issue with voting for a leader who could make such a serious error in judgment.

These “sweeteners” are added in to make it sound good to the senators and their constituents, but what they are really doing is adding even MORE money to this whole proposal.  Yes, they are talking about some tax breaks, but what good are tax breaks unless their are cuts in spending thrown in as well?  But instead of spending cuts, more money is being spent!

All I can hope is that when this goes back to the House, the same people who shot it down the first time do so again.

This bailout has to be stopped.  We are the U.S.A. — not the U.S.S.A.  Well, at least for now.

I, for one, am very glad that Barack Obama chose Joe Biden as his vice presidential running mate.  This guy is definitely the comic relief of this whole election process (though, admittedly, some of his gaffes aren’t that funny).  Let’s take a look at some of the fun we’ve had with “Anvil Joe” (as some have dubbed him) thus far.

Actually, let’s get some of the not-so-funny mistakes out of the way.  Then we can have some fun.

  • In an article titled Biden, Obama helped keep ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ alive, we are shown the hypocritical side of Biden (and Obama, for that matter).  Almost immediately after Sarah Palin’s VP nomination was announced, both Obama and Biden started harping on and on about how she had originally supported the infamous “Bridge to Nowhere” in Alaska.  They say she supported it before she opposed it.  And this is true.  She did support the earmark while she a gubernatorial candidate, but after becoming governor, she realized it had become a monstrosity and a horrible waste of taxpayer dollars, so she told them, “Thanks, but no thanks,” and that was it.  But Obama and Biden wouldn’t let it go.  Biden has been especially fierce in his criticism of her.  Now, we come to find out that Obama and Biden both voted to keep the “Bridge to Nowhere” project alive on two different occasions.  A case of the pot calling the kettle black?  Indeed, it is.  Though, with liberals now trying to say that if Obama loses it will be because of racism, I will probably get in trouble for saying that.  That’s how ridiculous things have gotten lately.  Anyway, I digress.  The article says:

    Both Biden and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama voted to kill a Senate amendment that would have diverted federal funding for the bridge to repair a Louisiana span badly damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Senate records show.

    So not only did they vote to keep the “Bridge to Nowhere” earmark alive on the transportation bill,  they did so at the expense of funds that would have been used to repair a bridge that was badly damaged during Hurricane Katrina.  And Democrats have tried to say that President Bush didn’t care about those hit by the hurricane.  Also, when all was said and done, Obama and Biden both voted for the final transportation bill, which included the $223 million earmark for the Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere” (which Governor Palin then rejected).

  • This one is decidedly the least funny of all the stupid things Biden has said.  In an article titled 1972 crash still haunts driver’s family, Delaware Online tells how Biden, on more than one occasion over the years, has told the story about how a drunk driver struck his wife’s car, killing her and their infant daughter and badly injuring their two sons.  The article then goes on to point out that the man who hit them was never accused of nor charged for being drunk.  The actual recorded facts of the case do not line up with Biden’s story.  And to make matters worse, the driver who hit them is now also dead and cannot even defend himself.  The man’s family, still grief-stricken by his death, has had to also listen to his name being slandered all across the nation.  Biden’s spokesperson has since said that Biden accepts the rumors about the man’s insobriety being false, but that still doesn’t explain why he ever said the man was drunk in the first place.  I understand that the whole incident was painful for him, but to lie and slander another person is never acceptable.

Ok, and now for the funnier stuff.

  • Biden tells Missouri State Senator, Chuck Graham, a paraplegic, to stand up:
  • Biden tells crowd that Hillary would probably have been a better VP choice than him:
  • Biden, during the primaries, also gave us his thoughts on Obama and McCain:
  • Help me out, Joe.  What is the name of the man at the top of your ticket?
  • FDR was not president during the Great Depression, so it also stands to reason that he did not address the nation on television when the stock market crashed.
  • Biden on the growth of Delaware’s Indian population and 7-Eleven:

The election is still more than a month away.  Stay tuned.  I’m sure there will be plenty more where all of that came from.
