Wishing the Guns into the Cornfield

Isn’t it amazing?
Marijuana’s been illegal to grow, possess or use for half a century+… but guys that can tell you 5 different places to buy it are certain outlawing GUNS will make ’em unavailable.

Things that make ya go “Huh?!”

Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States

A Few Words from President Barrack Obama:

Good evening. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur, hope and change! Adipiscing elit, it was the right thing to DO. Again… adipiscing elit, it was the right thing to DO{pause for applause}

Vivamus ultrices pellentesque? YES WE CAN! {pause for standing ovation}

But let me make this perfectly clear… ligula vitae aliquam! Lorem ipsum FORWARD. Dolor sit amet, their partisan actions, consectetur adipiscing elit I personally killed bin Laden while Navy SEALs watched in awe. Fusce eget ante… middle class, leo, ac dignissim massa, compromise.

Make no mistake, sed in erat elementum corporate greed… elit pellentesque previous administration, Tea Party, global warming, lazy do-nothing Congress, ATMs, Joe Biden, fluctuating overseas markets, and the sun was in my eyes.

Hope and change! {Hold for applause… fade to black}

——– {pause for station identification} ——–

And Now, a Personal Message from Vice President Biden:

Ever since the dark days when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor….

Notice to All Employees



As of November 5, 2008, when President Obama is elected, our company will adopt new policies in keeping with his inspiring message of change and fairness:

  • 1. Salespeople will pool sales and bonuses into a common fund to be divided equally.  This will offer those underachieving a “fair shake.”
  • 2. Wage employees will pool wages (including overtime) into a common pool to be divided equally.  This will enable those too busy for overtime to share equally with those blessed with the time to work extra hours.
  • 3. Management will now be referred to as “the government.”  We will not participate in “pooling” because the law doesn’t apply to us.
  • 4. The “government” will give eloquent speeches each week encouraging workers to continue to work hard “for the good of all.”

We are certain you will be thrilled because it’s “good to spread the wealth.”  Those who have underachieved will finally get an opportunity; Those who worked hard to attain success will feel patriotic.

ADDED: The last few people hired should clean out their desks. It’s OK, President Obama will give you free healthcare, handouts, oil for heating your home, foodstamps, and let you stay in your home as long as you want even if you can’t pay your mortgage.  

If you appeal directly to congress you might even get a free flatscreen TV and a coupon for free haircuts. Shouldn’t we all be entitled to nice looking hair?


Got this from an email sent by Mark Skinner. Didnt ask if it was original before posting it… even if he wrote it he stole the ideas from Obama, who in turn borrowed ’em from the Soviet Union.  

Reminds me … Howard Dean never paid for my nice artwork in ’04.  He said something about having security escort me, I just figured I was getting a really big fee.

I captured the core values of the Democrats pretty well if I do say so myself.

LOL… some things never change.

The Mortgage Blame Game

Buy the Set, Play Along at Home
I see references and polls daily that lay blame for the mortgage crisis (it had many facets but basically boils down to policies and actions of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) at the feet of George Bush personally and the GOP collectively.

Given my background I know better, and I’d find it amusing if it wasn’t probably the single biggest factor pushing the presidential election into the hands of the party most culpable for the problem.

The View Depends on Your Vantage Point
I don’t know what everyone else’s field of expertise is, but my Business degree is from the Dept of Finance and Real Estate. I’ve been in the real estate world in varying positions both corporate and entrepreneurial since the early 80s.

I didn’t just hear about this or get my facts on YouTube, I’ve studied it, I’ve lived it, as has my wife… one of many underwriters run off by Countrywide for trying to uphold the meager guidelines remaining. I’ve had a front row seat… only slightly more enviable than a nicely appointed cabin on the Titanic.

Since in the short run it looks like they’re gonna take the blame I almost wish it was, but no, the problems we’ve got right now predate Bush. Not only was the bomb planted and the fuse lit long before, but every time his administration or party tried to defuse it, they were shot down by the Dems on the Hill. That’s documented fact, news clips from left or the right support it.

Even papers that love the DNC credited ’em with saving the virtuous Fannie and Freddie from those mean ole GOP fellas… and the Dems repeatedly went on record as saying there was no problem at Fannie/Freddie.

Everyone Gets an Opinion, but Facts are Facts
I’ve posted some clips in various places… but why bother… experts without portfolio don’t like pesky little things like facts. I’ll grant there were some GOP guys on the Hill that were bought and paid for too… but the mess is pretty clearly a result of the DNC getting their way on the topic. People can argue all they want (I’m getting tired of it myself), but I know better than blaming this one on Bush, and I figured out a long time ago trusting the talking heads on TV to be journalists is a wasted effort.

The Supreme Irony
Yes, this will probably be the factor that decides this election, and you probably arent gonna see the following quote a lot on TV… so I’ll put it here. McCain co-sponsored the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, an attempt to rein in the risks posed by Fannie and Freddie.

Quote: John McCain on Senate floor in ’05

I join as a co-sponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation.

If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.

I urge my colleagues to support swift action on this GSE reform legislation.

Rewarding the Guilty
That’s but one of many attempts by the GOP in the last 8 years to rein in Fannie/Freddie that died to a Congress controlled by the DNC and bought off by special interest money, but it’s funny that this one was co-sponsored by the guy taking the biggest media beating for the catastrophe he correctly predicted.

God Bless Our Media Watchdogs
Meanwhile those that watch only MSNBC and CNN and dont have serious years in the industry are pretty much never gonna hear the facts. Oh the media has plenty of time to engage in weighty discussions about whether Sarah Palin really can see Russia while washing dishes or does she have take a helicopter ride. That’s just super, cause I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I didn’t know the answer to that serious piece of investigative journalism.

Pardon me for pointing out, but Who Freakin Cares, you morons… now can we we talk about who REALLY caused the crisis that precipitated the single most expensive tax grab in the history of mankind for just a second or shall we go back to generating Trivial Pursuit questions about the governor of Alaska?

See No Evil / Hear No Evil… and That’s the News, goodnight.
Meanwhile most of the media seems fully prepared to ignore even the most glaring evidence about this finance crisis that doesn’t support their desired outcome of seeing the #2 recipient of money from those same interests, Barack Obama, become the #1 recipient of electoral votes in November.

Doesn’t say much for our system. Seeing the party that caused this profit politically from it is rich irony.

Only in America.

A Media Bridge to Nowhere


You’ve Seen The News

Given the the information… let’s take a test.

QUESTION 1: There are four candidates running, only two slots open. Much has been said about “the bridge to nowhere”. Two of the candidates voted FOR the “bridge to nowhere”… what were their names?

  • A –  John McCain and Sarah Palin
  • B –  Barrack Obama and Joe Biden

Answer: If you picked “A” you’ve been paying close attention to the news. If you picked “B” you’ve been paying attention to the facts.

RELATED FACTS: Obama and Biden both voted FOR the bridge to nowhere. McCain had vocally opposed the bridge, but did not vote. Palin is a governor and they do not vote on Congressional funding bills.  


QUESTION 2: Much has been made about Republican failure to support Louisianna after hurricane Katrina. When Alaska’s “bridge to nowhere” was considered, Republican Tom Coburn offered an amendment with ONE purpose… divert those funds to rebuild bridges in Louisianna damaged by hurricane Katrina.

Which two current candidates voted AGAINST doing that?

  • A – John McCain and Sarah Palin
  • B – Barrack Obama and Joe Biden

ANSWER: If you said “A”, again you’ve seen media coverage, not the facts. The answer is “Obama and Biden“.

RELATED FACTS: Obama and Biden voted AGAINST diverting “bridge to nowhere” funds to bridges destroyed by Katrina. Don’t take my word… see the ROLE CALL VOTE on the Congressional website.


BULLSHIT! No way… If this was true we’d have heard !

Naah, gets buried by a media so in bed with Obama that if he got STDs they’d need a physical. Any negative story on Obama results in newscasters sticking fingers in their ears (or their head somewhere less savory).

Here’s a clip showing part of the story. The full text continues on to detail Bidens own spending skeletons (see link at bottom).


Here’s a link to the above CNN story specifically pointing out the facts… but if it got airtime it disappeared fast. Would this be getting airtime if the players had been McCain and Palin?


If this was widely known information, I wouldnt have seen Obama give a speech today where he got applause by saying…

“if you believe THAT… I’ve got a bridge in Alaska to sell you!”

Yes, he does seem to be selling us a bridge, the very one he and Biden voted for. Sadly, the “watchdog media”  is brokering the deal.
