  • Obama [chief economic] Adviser Summers to Depart White House at Year's End

    Reagan: Tear down this wall!

    Obama: Build this Mosque!

    What a comparison between these two men. Advisors told Reagan NOT to give that speech, that it was insulting. Reagan gave it anyway.

    Could anyone imagine Obama giving such a speech (like Reagan’s “tear down this wall”) to the Muslims to NOT build this Mosque?

  • Missouri voters tackle ObamaCare mandate in referendum; Update: 76% voting yes early

    Start the Spin Machine:

    1) The ballot issue was confusing. Many who voted YES thought they were voting FOR the health care.

    2) Democrats didn’t vote.

    Why this spin is wrong:

    The ballot was actually quite clear in the wording. You were either voting FOR a State Constitional amendment, or you were voting against the Amendment. The Amendment said that Missourians would NOT be required to purchase health care.

    I have heard several Democrats say that they voted Republican for the first time EVER. So the heavy Republican vote was actually because Democrats voted Republican!

    In the beginning, it looked like those hand made scratch marks noted the inches. At least, that is what it looked like to me. I thought it was something like a “21” inch pipe (but I don’t remember). It seems like at 10:00 Central Time that they are 5 inches into the cut. At least, that is what it appears to me.

    I suggest that the Palin family hit him in his pocketbook. The Palin family should sell their home and upgrade. This would leave this guy with the 5 or 6 month rent with nothing to show for it in the end. The Palin family might have been considering an upgrade anyway.

    CJacobs to GovernmentShrinker

    Maybe I am a bit not educated on the legalities of this, but I would consider a trade as “a trade”, even if done under false information. For example, I once bought a stock (WYN: Wyndham Hotels) under the assumption that the financials I read were correct. They were not. I had no recourse because the error was MY fault. I should have read other sources that DID have the correct data.

    Call me stupid, but if they can undo a trade (even if on false data), then where is the trust that my trade really was a trade?

    Being a ref is a tough, tough job. I know, I’ve been one myself and taken a LOT of abuse from parents. BUT, I also know that I’ve blown some calls and inadvertantly given one team the breaks on calls. I was often my toughest critic. But I still believe that although the officials TRIED to be fair in this game, at the end (when it matters most), things were not quite even. One side (Duke) played much more physical and the fouls were not called as I felt they should have.

    THAT was the most glaring break given to Duke that I saw. Plus the “non” intentional foul and a few others.

    No hate here. I’ve spent my years as a referee in sports. My two cents, which is IMHO, breaks went to Duke, especially at the end.

    That may be true for the last two weeks, but tonight, almost every questionable call went in Duke’s favor, especially at the end. I could believe that when he threw Hayward down with arms flinging, elbow to the face, and no foul. Zeigler held him on the 2nd to last shot as he circled the paint. Then the non-intentional foul call. Duke played great, but the officiating was clearly slanted toward Duke tonight.

    Ziegler was holding all the way around the lane on that 2nd to last shot. Hayward was knocked down about one minute to play (ball went off the foot to Duke). Then that intentional non-intentional foul.

  • Poll: 79% fear U.S. economy could collapse

    The good news to all of this is that Obama owns it...

    Obama now owns health care because he “fixed it”...

    Obama owns the economy because he saved us from the worst recession since the great depression...

    Obama now owns the debt because he tripled the deficit...

    Obama owns the unemployment rate, because he said that the worst is over...

    So when everything collapses now... he owns it.

    I predicted before the election, and before the collapse of Lehman Brothers that our economy would collapse no matter who we elected. I was worried that we would borrow ourselves into bankruptcy, but survive through a growth of Socialism, and thus, our country would want more of the same. I could be wrong, but now I don’t think we will make it through 2012 before the collapse. IF (BIG IF) we collapse before 2012, Obama owns it. Even if a Republican controlled Congress gets elected, he can veto ANYTHING that is put before him to leave everything in place that he has done. Obama owns it.

    Also, no blood bank wants the blood of progressives. It’s tainted.

    Actually, considering the questions they ask, there is a lot of truth to that. Disqualifiers include:
    Having sex with any man since around 1980
    Having sex with more than 7 women
    Using drugs or needles
    Tatoos (for a certain period)
    Certain STD's
    Having sex with anyone with certain STD's
    Paying anyone for sex

    and MANY more...

    But the most personal question they ask me before giving blood is:

    HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH? OUCH!!!!!

    Of everyone that posted on this thread, YOU presented the best case against this. That is that this DOES go against the values of the Christian Conservative.

    I know, because I struggled with this myself. This was NOT just a suggestion that I threw out. I had been pondering this for days before the health care vote.

    There have been times that I did not donate blood. There were times that I know that my blood has gone to people who would curse me, spit on me, and hate every bone in my body. There are probably some that got my blood that wouldn’t mind killing me, either.

    But, being a Christian, I still knew it was the right thing to do.

    But now, I see oppression taking over this nation. I know history, and oppression is a VERY ugly future. If two months could change that course of events, I would exchange that in a heart beat.

    But you are correct. This goes against the values of the Christian Conservative.

    Why is it that if the conservatives boycott giving blood that you think people will die? Why? Because you must then realize that it IS the conservatives that donate the most in the blood supply.

    And since when is it MY responsiblity to donate blood? People like me have donated for years and years and years. In my case, 11.5 gallons. It is becoming quite evident that all those donations were not very well appreciated, as it CLEARLY shows on this thread. This thread goes on the assumption that if people like myself skip donating for just two months, WE are baby killers. WOW!!!!

    Make the liberals finally step to the plate in a crisis. If they don’t give this small amount of charity, then the blood should be on THEIR hands, not ours.
