Oh the hilarity of calling it a compromise stimulus package.  The American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan report is about 778 pages of political wrangling and the public has only been given about 24 hours to review it before a final vote.

Where is the damned Generational Theft Act that the Congressional Budget Office has referred to as, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan?  I’d like to read every last page.  It sure as hell is not on the White House web pages, as it states, “The President remains committed to bringing more transparency to government, and in this spirit the White House will continue to publish legislation expected to come to his desk on line for public comment as it moves through Congress.”    http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing_room/OfficialStatements/  

President Obama resolutely promised change and transparency indicating that,  “Too often bills are rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them. As president, Obama will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days.  Key word here- NON EMERGENCY.  http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog_post/update_on_sunlight_before_signing/ This is an emergency if ever there was one. One trillion tomorrow, two trillion the next day, defines emergency in my dictionary.

 The White House blog itself was just updated after three three days of inactivity. http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog_post/first_flights/  features his first trip on Air Force One and highlights his Democratic Caucus trip saying, “We have to accommodate the interests of a range of people.  And the House is going to have to work with the Senate.  But let’s think big right now.  Let’s not think small.”  What I am thinking is big government sucks.

Published on line by the Library of Congress, parts of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan are available at Open Congress http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h1/show .  Have fun reading through all the 481 amendments proposed. 

Relying on Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) at his  site  http://coburn.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=RightNow.Home&ContentRecord_id=3db704c6-802a-23ad-406c-a424db591389  you’ll find a fistful of wasteful and Non-Stimulus Spending Provisions.

I’d rather stand in the unemployment line for five more days than have this rushed through legislation and not put it out there for us little people- the tax payer to look at.  I want to know who exactly proposed spending $75 million for “smoking cessation activities,  $75 million for salaries of employees at the FBI and the $25 million for tribal alcohol and substance abuse reduction just to name a few.  C’mon, who?  What gall. 

There are a whole host of concerns that we all have but now is not the time to worry about stop smoking and drinking. 

Show me the money honey and while I’m thinking about it, why in the sam hell does  The President have time to write an Op-Ed piece for Wa-Po?  Is there nothing else he could be doing than taking the time for this?  Like giving orders to post the damned “plans” on the website before he signs them? 

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/02/04/AR2009020403174.html?hpid=opinionsbox1

That’s the way to create consumer confidence, write about how “this recession might linger for years.”  We are indeed a desperate nation when we allocate millions for pork barrel projects and earmarks that do nothing.  Obama is doing something alright, he will be addressing the nation on prime time TV tonight. http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/02/08/obama-prime-time-vision/

In the meantime so as not to confuse billions and trillions of of dollars between two pieces of legislation, “With the administration making a full court press to get the economic stimulus package through Congress, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is delaying his plans to spell out details of the upcoming bank rescue plan, now dubbed the Financial Stability and Recovery Plan.” http://www.thedeal.com/dealscape/2009/02/geithner_puts_banking_rescue_p.php

Geithner’s new plan appears designed to stem the government’s up-front costs to the federal budget but could nevertheless expose taxpayers to as much as $2 trillion more in potential obligations to the financial industry. 

I’d like to read the Financial Stability and Recovery Plan before it goes into law too, but even Open Congress doesn’t provide this.

Might as well turn in my conservative blogger badge now and say hello to government controlled capitalism as we allocate nearly three trillion dollars in three days. 

Lol, ain’t nothing funny about it.

Just when you think you’ve heard it all in the election cycle, comes along more fuel to the fire with columnist, Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post blathering on why the Republicans lost this year’s election, and it’s all God’s fault.  She writes at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/18/AR2008111802886.html 

“Three little letters, great big problem: G-O-D. I’m bathing in holy water as I type. To be more specific, the evangelical, right-wing, oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict and marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn’t soon cometh.  Simply put: Armband religion is killing the Republican Party.”

People have legitimate positions on all sides of these issues and we don’t have to agree with all of them, but a description of the oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is rather offensive. Socially conservative positions may not be the popular vote, but to suggest that a whole group of people leave their values behind is ludicrous.  Religion is very personal thing, but not necessarily private.  The gorilla she professes as a God problem is really the abortion issue. Obama made clear his support for the policy of federal funding and with regard to his personal life, saying that if his daughter’s made a mistake, he wouldn’t want them punished for the rest of their lives.  Did Obama learn this from Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church, The Koran, The Bible?

History will tell us of the consequence of voting for Obama and his selection of pro-abortion former U.S. senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota as his Health and Human Services Secretary. His announcement came on The Feast Day of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, the patroness of Catholic hospitals.  It strikes me that proposition 8 in California, was defeated by the those same socially conservative voters that elected Obama.

In his homily before the election November 3, 2008,  Most Reverend Robert W. Finn
Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph http://whitearoundthecollar.blogspot.com/ wrote in part , ” In a country where we have made choice an absolute, we must remember that underlying every choice is a value; that flowing from every choice is a consequence; that we must give an accounting to God for what we decide.” 

“The recent election was principally decided out of concern for the economy, for the loss of jobs and homes and financial security for families, here and around the world. If the election is misinterpreted ideologically as a referendum on abortion, the unity desired by President-elect Obama and all Americans at this moment of crisis will be impossible to achieve,” said, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), voiced hope for the Obama Administration but pointed to possible obstacles to our desired unity. http://www.usccb.org/comm/archives/2008/08-174.shtml

Pope Benedict XVI delivered this message at the general audience in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City on November 12, 2008, “Our life in this world, marked by trials and tribulations, must be inspired by the hope of heaven and the expectation of our resurrection to glory.”  http://zenit.org/article-24235?l=english 

If the abandonment of God and his public followers is the way to garner votes for the GOP, it is a sad reflection on our society.    Whether one defines themselves as Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, Mormon, Muslim, Orthodox, Baptist or as she refers to the Evangelicals, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelicalism we should define ourselves in theocracy with the love of God and country and if that means wearing an armband for unborn children, then so be it.

“So while insulting G-O-D, she also insulted people like me. Like you. People who insist on infusing their faith into their politics. And that’s okay; I’d rather be in the oogedy-boogedy section of Heaven (God willing), than in the hoity-toity room of hell, where’s there possibly very little elbow room.”  http://actsoftheapostasy.blogspot.com/2008/11/rise-up-ye-oogedy-boogedy-of-god.html

“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but to lose his soul?”  

God Bless America.

No wonder Obama put forth so much effort into early voting when he, himself knew that there would be issues surrounding his character and the entire voting process that might make him less appealing in the last minute before entering into the voting booth.

With just three days left until Election Day, a new CBS News poll finds that the Democratic presidential ticket of Obama and Biden leads its Republican counterpart by 13 points among likely voters, 54 percent to 41 percent.  Yet Zogby according to (CNN) — Sen. John McCain has inched ahead of Sen. Barack Obama in national polls, but the Democratic candidate holds a steady lead in the most recent Electoral College estimates. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/09/09/presidential.polls/

Oh, just shut up already.  I personally would put my family before anything in my life- I am a religious person, a Catholic in fact, and I while I believe in God, family for me comes first.  I see no evidence that Obama’s family comes first with relatives of every mix, nationality and religion scattered through out the world living in poverty.

Obama has down right, dirty deeded and unscrupioulsy attempted to influence early voters on the premise of reform.  What needs to be reformed is the whole idea of early voting.   Election day in America is November 4th, not one day before or one day after.  We have bent and yeilded the laws to make voting a convenience and it is a slap in the face of the American Voter to think that with out a rational excuse, you can vote early because you might have to stand in line for an hour or so on election day.  We have soldiers standing for us on foreign soil complaining they don’t have working guns and some shmuck will compain about the weather on election day.  Go figure. 

“Obama, bidding to become the nation’s first black president, led in national polls as well as surveys in several battleground states. McCain’s hopes of an upset hinged on winning all or nearly all the states that carried Bush to victory in 2004, and possibly carrying Pennsylvania to give him a margin for error. ” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/01/obama-mccain-visit-red-  st_n_139946.html  As if all of America didn’t know the color of Obama’s skin, the media must once again state the obvious, Obama is black.  Yawning now, most don’t really care what color That One is. 

Curtis Gans, director of the Committee for the Study of the American Electorate at American University, says the trend may show the impact of Obama’s get-out-the-vote effort. “It might indicate an advantage, at least out of the early voting figures, for the Democratic Party,” he says. But Republicans could close that gap, he notes at http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/election2008/2008-10-21-early-voting_N.htm

Is it fair to say that early voters might be registered democratics who stand the most to benefit from that One, O’bama’s spread the wealth programs?  Yep. Many early Democratic voters can go at thier leisure unlike the rest of many Republicans who actually have jobs and are accountable to a time clock and would not necessarily sacrifice personal paid time off the job to go and vote. 

With less than 72 hours I don’t care if you have to crawl uphill both ways to vote on Election Day.  Vote and Vote McCain.

By now, we all know the L.A.Times and numerous other liberal newspapers have endorsed John McCain and it got me wondering who has endorsed McCain?  I also question why the L.A Times will not release a transcripts of a confidential video where Obama and his wife were at a “Jew-Bash” dinner, roasting and toasting PLO associate Khalidi with Bill Ayers and his wife.   If one thinks Obama is hiding pertinent information about his past now, wait and see what he hides from the American People if be becomes elected President.  Too many dirty little secrets. 

Wiki lists a who’s who http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_John_McCain_presidential_campaign_endorsements with notable politicians and movie stars from Clint Eastwood to Lee Greenwood and at  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newspaper_endorsements_in_the_United_States_presidential_primaries,_2008.  The accuracy of Wiki being reliable is especially questionable when it continues to show that the N.Y. Times has endorsed McCain, when in fact it has endorsed That One.

Info chimps blog spent a little time revealing the disparity geographically of Newspaper Endorsements.  http://blog.infochimps.org/2008/10/22/2008election-newspaper-endorsement-map/Apart from the unsurprising evidence that (choose one: [[Obama is the overwhelming choice]] -OR- [[there is overwhelming liberal media bias]]), I’m struck by the mismatch between papers’ endorsements and their “Red State” vs “Blue State” alignment.”  Definitely an interesting read of factual data with a little bit of a debatable fictional twist.

What gives newspapers and not television stations the right to endorse any one at all?  It is rather obvious which networks are fair and balanced in their political reporting.

In this campaign of Obama being everywhere, it is becoming annoying to see his face and logo go into saturation mode.  The half hour infomercial was an embarrassment to the whole political system, mocking the fact that he chose not receive federal funding.   I think by now Americans after two years get who the candidates are and what they stand for.  Finally, in making light of endorsements we have the  http://www.weeklyworldnews.com/alien-alert/october-surprise-alien-switches-endorsement-to-mccain/ depicting even an Alien turning away from Obama and supporting McCain. 

For sure endorsements matter even when they are from other worlds.  An alien endorsement for McCain has sealed the deal for me and McCain has my vote.

One website claims to have the transcript of the L.A. Times video,  http://chicagoagainstobama.wordpress.com/2008/10/29/probable-transcript-of-the-khalidi-tape/

“While Sam Zell is selling out the future of his own people by refusing to release the tape of Barack Obama toasting known anti-Semite and PLO functionary, Rashid Khalidi, I have been fortunate enough to receive a probable transcript of the toast…

HERE IT IS:

****BEGINNING OF TRANSCRIPT***********

Um, ah….Salaam

Um….My distinguished guests….ughh….it is an honor to be here…

uhh….It is truly refreshing to be surrounded by such a large group of people in which…uh.. I can truly see eye-to-eye with…uh…and completely agree…

Reverend Farrakhan..ughh…great to see you tonight…you always look great in a yellow bow-tie…and..uhh…tonight is no exception….

Bill..Bernadine….I see you everyday…so I don’t need to say much…but…ughh…you know I love you….keep doing the work you do….it’s time to start a revolution

Reverend Wright…..ughh…you are the father that I never had….I’ve never missed a sermon…and…uhh….I never will…

Michelle, while I find your frown so beautiful….I hope to one day make you proud of this country..and uhh…happy…and finally see you smile….

uhhhhh…with that being said…If everyone could please hold off from hitting the hookah…I would like to say a toast..to my, and Yasser Arafat’s, best friend….Mr. Rashid Khalidi….

Rashid…..you are my best friend….spiritual compass…..and baby sitter (crowd laughs..and cries)

I want to thank you for your constant indoctrination….I want to thank you for your imput..and..uhhh…reminders…that Israel is a constant sore….and..uhh…needs to be eliminated off the map….

I also want to thank you for introducing me to your many contacts in the middle east…I am sure…uh…that their imput……and uh…money…..will be of great use to me as I run for President of these great 57 states…..

While David Axelrod may be forcing you to move away from me during the campaign….I am confident…that..uhh…our friendship will not only remain..but actually prosper..during our time of absence….

Rashid…you ARE my middle east adviser….and you ALWAYS will be…

Here’s to Rashid……(A chant of Messiah can be heard in the background….also audible…is a voice (thought to be Ayer’s) screaming REVOLUTION…REVOLUTION..over and over…)

Salaam….”

This is pretty creative seeing as we have no idea what That One had to say about That Other One with those Other One’s in attendance.

 

Over at  http://directorblue.blogspot.com/ he claims this tip–

I received a tip from a person who has provided useful, accurate and unique data from LA before (e.g., “All six of CNN’s ‘undecided voters’ were Democratic operatives“). Take it for what it’s worth, but I believe this person is on target. 

Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can’t release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.” 

My tip to you, Vote McCain.

Bill O’Reilly announced last night that his staff has been in contact with the LA Times and that the newspaper says it will not release the tape of Obama toasting radical Rashid Khalidi at a Jew-bash in Chicago. The O’Reilly Factor will report more on the story tomorrow.

In the meantime, Nancy Sullivan, spokeswoman for the Times, said the paper is not interested in revisiting the story. “As far as we’re concerned, the story speaks for itself,” she said.

Jewish World Review Oct. 29, 2008 / 30 Tishrei 5769

GET US THE TAPE THE L.A. TIMES REFUSES TO RELEASE, AND WE’LL GIVE YOU CASH!

http://www.jewishworldreview.com/1008/video_bounty.php3

GET US THE TAPE THE L.A. TIMES REFUSES TO RELEASE, AND WE’LL GIVE YOU CASH

JewishWorldReview.com | For the last week, this site has been receiving mail — lots of mail — asking that we somehow shame the Los Angeles Times into releasing a videotape they admit to having that shows then Illinois state Sen. Barak Obama praising Rashid Khalidi, the one-time PLO spokesman/adviser during a 2003 farewell party in Chicago. Shortly thereafter, he became the head of the Middle East Studies Department at Columbia University.

At what turned out to be a “Jew-bash”, Obama, who the polls say will likely be the next leader of the Free World, chose to remain silent. Even after the presentations, the politician who now says he’s in favor of a secure Israel refused to denounce what he had just heard. Including, according to the Times:

A ” young Palestinian American recit[ing] a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, “then you will never see a day of peace.”

And another speaker likened “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been “blinded by ideology.”

The anti-Israel Arab American Action Network sponsored the gala. Obama reportedly helped funnel tens of thousands of dollars to them.

Obama did say, according to the LA Times, that his conversations with Khalidi over the years had influenced his thinking about the Israeli-Arab crisis. The discussions became, he recalled, “consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases.”

There’s likely a lot more information on that tape that the electorate needs to be informed of.

I’m willing to personally get $5,000 to anybody who can get me a verified digital copy of the events of that evening. If readers want to add money, we’ll raise the “bounty”.

Once we get the video, which we’ll need by Friday, we will post it online for anybody to link to. We will return it back to the “public domain” where it belongs.

If you have the tape, know somebody who does or wish to “chip in”, please click here.
