Is this thing on?
So, apparently, things have been quiet here for a while. Is anyone still here?

Obama: The Affirmative Action President
“Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?”
By Matt Patterson
This is an article that needs to be read especially by those of you who were so unfortunate as to have voted for this horrible horrible excuse for a leader.
A few other quotes from this article that I think are important.
“ . . .ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer"; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.”
“In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job.”
Could not have said it better!http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/08/obama_the_affirmative_action_president.html

George W Bush Secret Service cufflinksGeorge W Bush Secret Service Tie TackGeorge W Bush Secret Service Tie PinGeorge W Bush Secret Service Ink Pen
I used to be a housekeeper at a hotel where George W Bush stayed very briefly,
but his secret service agents were there for much longer to do what they do.
When they departed, they left a set of cufflinks, 1 tie tack, 1 tie pin, and one ink pen, all with the Presidential seal.
These ARE NOT some cheap memorabilia from a web site.
After 90 days in lost and found, no inquiries were made, so these items became legally mine.
I believe the reason they were left behind could have been one of two things:
1: was an extra set for an agent, who didn't need them. (seems unlikely but possible)
2: it was part of a gift set President Bush was giving to Party Members during his visit to Wisconsin in 2004, and one got left behind.(more likely)
Either way, this is official US Government issued memorabilia.

An -open letter to our nation's leadership written by a woman from Arizona : (Anything in parenthesis is my comments. This letter is long without my comments, but I did add comments.)
I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. (Never. )Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me? ( LIsten up!Collapse )

Speak up for the sake of your country!
I'm surprised that nothing's been posted here since October 2008. Have people here given up that easily?
After hearing last night that Obama signed the unbelievably wasteful 2009 Omnibus Spending Bill, I got angry. I called the White House comment line and vented to one of their operators (not that it did much good). I called my Congressmen and vented (don't know how much good that will do, either). I'm sick and tired of having to speak my mind to uninformed Congressional staff members. What are we as Republicans going to do now that the government has failed us? Are we just going to sit around? I'm not!
We need to come up with ideas, grassroots efforts to get the government to finally listen to the people.
And if that doesn't work, my other idea is just a good old fashioned revolt, Boston Tea Party style. Current Mood: angry

Pro troops Propaganda
It really pisses me off that in order to support the troops you have to support the war as well. I love our troops and am I proud that they would sacrifice their lives to protect out freedoms. Unfortunately they are being used in needless undeclared wars that any American, if they understood what was going on in the world instead of watching fox news, would want us out of. I am sorry that the powers that be are exploiting the troops and I wish we could bring you home. But I guess we will have to wait to leave with "honor". What exactly do they mean when they say, bring them home with honor?? In a fucking body bag? How about we bring them home with their lives, how about we let them go their families and save our military for when our freedoms are really being threatened.
So all you McCain lovers.. I support the troops I am just not brainwashed and stupid.. this war is going to be the destruction of our economy and country we need to come home on our own.. because if we don't we are going to be forced to come home because we can't afford it. I prefer bowing out instead of having to leave because we are broke.. what kind of message does that send to the world? To me it says we are weak and gives them every reason to attack. If we bow out peacefully at least we can save some face.
Oh and all you Obama lovers.. he just like McCain.. Look at his voting record.. hes a good speaker but full of shit.. there will be no change under him. We need real change, don't let Obama or McCain sweet talk you.. wake up America.. they both support the bailout, they both support war, and they are both going to do the same things in office because they are controlled by SPECIAL INTEREST groups.
Check out www.campaignforliberty.com Lets take our country back!
Oh and all you that love our troops, and support the war.. just remember who go the most military donations.. more than every candidate combined.. thats right Ron Paul.. so shut up about McCain being the guy the troops want. Obviously its not.. you think they want to be used in Iraq? Just because McCain loves war and was in one does not mean he should lead our country. Yeah he has experience, but the wrong kind.. I dont want someone in office who wants war.. but the military industrial complex runs both parties foreign policy.. stop being ignorant.. please wake up and do some research instead of watching the main media!

The Difference between Republicans and Democrats...
...if you make fun of Obama, Democrats will go ballistic. Meanwhile, I support McCain/Palin and yet, I've watched this clip 1,000 times since yesterday, and I still bust a gut laughing everytime she shoots the moose.

Hi.. I have a question.
Does anyone know the process (or can direct me somewhere that explains it) that a councilman of a town has to go through in order to be elected?
thanks in advance!
Bailout.. stealing our money
I read through the 400page bill that just passed and man this is sketchy as HECK. Among all the ludicrous and "grey" powers it gives Paulson all over the place -- there is this that is hidden in there.......
Section 101 (e) PREVENTING UNJECT ENRICHMENT -- In making purchases under the authority of this Act, the Secretary shall take such steps as may be necessary to prevent un-ject enrichment of financial institutions participating in a program established under this section, including by preventing the sale of a troubled asset to the Secretary at a higher price than what the seller paid to purchase the asset. The subsection does not apply to troubled assets acquired in a merger or acquisition, or a purchase of assets from a financial institution in conservatorship or receivership, or that has initiated bankruptcy proceedings under title 11, United States Code.
The last line; yes, read it again. Those institutions that Paulson, the majority of the fed / treasury historicaly come out of, the "shadow banks" if you buy into that (I really dont) that have taken over the companies with the biggest exposure (Lehman, Baer, Wamu, Wacho, etc) will be able to sell their assets for as high as they want. Whereas everyone else pretty much has to grin, sell at high prices, take the losses, and probably go under.
Who survives? Paulson's friends and all the come out as among the only insitutions left.

Bail out.. for against and why?
What do you think? I think its bad to dump the debt on the tax payers. I read through the bill and it gives paulson too much authority to do with the money what he wants and a lot of foreign banks are getting money not the american people. Its also a gamble withour money.. they say we might get money later from it.. i dont believe this for a moment and I dont want the government playing roulette with my money.

Looks like Ron Paul was right after all
We need to stomp this bailout, our country is being flushed down the tubes.. John McCain needs to speak out against this bailout. If we do not let the system correct itself with a recession. We will have a depression and the dollar will be destroyed.

This is BULL$#IT!
This Bailout situation stinks to high hell!
First you have sept. 18th Harry Reid saying we don't know what to do to fix this.
Then last week Reid, Pelosi and the Dem. leaders in Congress work WITH Paulson to create a deal that gave him a blank check to use 700 billion as he saw fit. They announced THEY had a deal... one that in no way involved bipartisan effort or ideas. The President calls a meeting thursday where the Dems try to ram their deal through expecting the Rep.s to accept it; they don't and Dems lambaste them in the press for BREAKING a deal they NEVER had!
Now after 2 1/2 days of bipartisan work they announce they have a deal ready. But Reid and Pelosi both say during the press conference that the plan that previously existed was unsupportable??? But it was THEIR DEAL! How stupid do they think I am?
Standing at the podium were Pelosi, Reid, Frank and Dodd; not a Republican in site. And they have said they won't go throug with this unless the Republicans vote along WITH them, too chickenshit to take blame ALONE for their ideas.
And again they blame THIS Administration for this dilemma which is flatly untrue! This started in 1998 when Bill Clinton pushed to create the House Reinvestment act pressuring Lending institutions to grant subprime mortgages to people insufficient in earnings or as they say "DID's (Diffcult To Document). Bush tried unsuccessfully to bring effort to curtail this practice in '05 and it was opposed by the Democrats. McCain authored a bill in '05 to stop it and step up regulations... it was defeated by Democrats. For the past 2 years Chris Dodd and Barney Frank have chaired the Banking and Housing committees overseeing this mess and left it to collapse, NEVER acting to correct it. Both have recieved big money from the institutions involved.
And now Henry Paulson, former head of global lending institution Goldman Sachs... Wanted 700 billion handed to him to prop up Wall st. players and lenders...
4 months before his term ends and he RETURNS to private sector Wall st.???
Give me a BREAK!
Once this is done many heads should roll.
I want resignations from
and Charlie Rangel for years of tax cheating being investigated. He's too crooked to step down and Pelosi to waek and partisan to replace him as head tax legislator in the House.
We are still waiting to hear what Congressional Republicans say about the "deal".

So... how do you think it'll go tonight?
By the way, dunno if any of you guys remember who the Emergency Broadcast Network
were, but they were this sort of political leaning art group... and now they're called Eclectic-method
anyway, they did this video remix of InnerPartySystem
's "Don't Stop" video that is very very very
timely for tonight's debate.
And then you can do your own remix:

Hello, my name is Adrian, from NY and I'm trans*queer. I've been a Democrat since I was able to vote way back in 88. Since the beginning of this election year I have thought about switching parties. I did, I will be voting for McCain/Palin - though I'm in NY so I doubt my vote will count. I always saw the Democrat party as progressive liberals who believe in freedom of speech for all, now I see they are for freedom of speech but only if you agree with them. I also hate the fact that most LGBT people feel I MUST be a Democrat because I am transgendered and queer. I joined this community to get in touch with other Republicans since most people that I know are Democrats. So this is my intro post, I hope most don't have a problem with my gender/sexuality, but if some do that's fine I believe in freedom of speech, I am ok with agreeing to disagree. Like I already said, I am only looking to get in touch with other Republicans to chat about the upcoming election and the GOP.
