    Those of you calling this a hoax: Please be aware you are not just accusing the POTUS, you are accusing the entire US MILITARY of fraud.

    Are you really willing to go there?

    I’m not.

  • Breaking News: Obama to Leave Campaign Trail for Two Days to Visit Sick Grandmother

    Sometimes a sick grandmother is just a sick grandmother. Just sayin’.

    I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more retarded FR thread than this one. A lot of people need to grow up.

    ________

    I have to agree. No wonder we’re losing. This thread sounds like the DU wackos from 2000 who were whining about Bush & Cheney both living in TX. They were looking for ANY reason to get them out of the race....

    Prayers for Gran and the family. Losing those closest to you is never easy. I lost both my parents in their 70’s and I could never visit longer than an hour, because they just couldn’t entertain longer than that - (Dad had AZ so Mom was a bit overburdened....)

    Those of you with grandparents who are still living, please realize what a gift you have. I only knew my paternal grandfather, (Mom’s parents died before I was born) and not very well, as he lived across the country, close to my grandmother who was in a home with AZ (long before they knew what it was, or how to care for the patients) - so it was more of an asylum than a “home for the aging.”

    Please, please, please.... do NOT take your grandparents or your parents for granted - or for that matter, ANYONE YOU LOVE. They can be gone in the blink of an eye.

    Sorry for the pathos, I’m close to the Red Tent I guess.

  • Live McCain press conference on ACORN voter fraud

    “Any group can negotiate a group rate.”

    This is not true in California. Only groups of 51 or more can “negotiate” a rate. Small groups of 2-50 cannot. Their rates are fixed, yet depend on their RAF (Risk Adjustment Factor - from .90 to 1.10 being the highest) - meaning how healthy the group is as a whole. The trade off is small group coverage is guaranteed issue - you cannot be declined, where a large group can be, although rarely are because the money they get for more people will balance out the RAF - and they can also “negotiate” a higher rate for a group if someone in the group has something that requires a lot of care such as MS or cancer.

    The problem I have with McCain’s $5k tax credit is very few plans here in CA are that cheap annually, and if they are, they’re horrid plans that offer virtually no coverage and are for 20-somethings who never leave the house.

    Individual plans here are even worse. You can be declined for even the smallest reason, but because it’s CA, you can apply for HIPPA coverage which is guaranteed issue - but the premiums are astronomical. (None of our HIPPA clients are under $1k a month - and the youngest is in their 20s.)

    The rats are responsible for much of the current mess. On energy and entitlements, they are almost 100% responsible. Energy, entitlement, labor, health care, trade, and tax meltdowns are coming. On the current mortgage mess, rats were the instigators. Bush also pushed the minority ownership madness. The financial sector piled on with the derivatives madness.

    I wish I could be optimistic. It looks like a rat blowout. I will of course vote for Republicans and urge others to vote Republican also. However, the rat tsunami is approaching. The long term prospects of energy, entitlement, labor, trade, and tax meltdowns have shaken my confidence in the country’s prospects. Stephen Moore is spot on with the “End of Prosperity.”

    Brilliant post. I wish more people understood this part:
    "Bush also pushed the minority ownership madness. The financial sector piled on with the derivatives madness."

    This is the iceberg the entire world has hit. Both McCain and Palin need to talk about this, and explain how they'll FIX IT. This is the main thing people care about, and will care about more and more with each passing day until the credit market recovers and the freeze is lifted, which may not happen until well after the election. If McCain/Palin could articulate a plan, the markets might BELIEVE them, and things might begin to recover sooner rather than later.

    The entire world is watching this election, and the markets reflect will reflect it.

    Thank you for your response, and I meant my “inference” to be a caution, not an insult. Glad you do not condone violence. Thank you.

    But you still didn’t answer what many people here have asked: What did you mean by what is going to happen next week?

    I’m a “troll” because as a Christian I do not condone inciting violence, I’m asking the same question as others are as to “what’s happening next week”, or because I actually think we CAN WIN ON THE ISSUES?????

    I for one, am not in fear of taking the high road. It shocks me that anyone who disagrees with this instantly labels me a troll.

    Very sad indeed.

    Maybe there’s hope after all:

    http://www.time-blog.com/swampland/2008/10/mccain_denounces_pitchforkwave.html

    Indeed, [McCain] just snatched the microphone out the hands of a woman who began her question with, “I’m scared of Barack Obama... he’s an Arab terrorist...”
    “No, no ma’am,” he interrupted. “He’s a decent family man with whom I happen to have some disagreements.”

    You’re right. Not voting is worse. Then most likely, unless things stop being so ugly, my vote will go to Barr.

    As a Christian I can’t stomach the negativity. I thought McCain was better than that.

    Seriously?

    This is why IMHO we’re losing. NO ONE here is going to like what I have to say, but I am going to say it anyway. I probably won’t be welcome here anymore, but then I feel as if my party has abandon me, so I don’t know if it matters.

    I live in CA, (bluest of blue) but I work in the financial/insurance industry around a LOT of very smart CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS who ALL think the GOP & the McCain campaign as a whole have gone over a cliff. These were once die-hard Republicans, and they’re all mad as hell. We feel as though we’re members of a once honorable party that has become filled with hate and racist rage, that despises education and intelligence, and have embraced the term “Joe Sixpack” as if it’s a compliment, and that honestly, none of us recognize anymore.

    Most of the actions of the McCain campaign look pathetically desperate at this point, and it grows worse every day. I am sickened by their behavior. I never thought I’d say that.

    1. McCain DOES need to talk about the issues - like HOW to fix the economy, or we’re going to lose by even more. People are SICK of negative campaigning and are no longer listening to it. (I don’t think people would care if there was tape of BO biting the heads off live animals, they want the ECONOMY FIXED.)

    2. As some of you know, I was a HUGE Sarah fan, but now I’m out. I am beyond disappointed. She’s not the smart gal I thought she was, and she’s become an albatross around McCain’s neck. He needs to dump her now, and pick Romney, the sooner the better. (And someone tell her to stop wearing the porn boots and put her hair back up. The “new look” has only made her appear more shallow - if that was possible.) Yes, I’m a WOMAN, appearance is important, and she is NOT the role model I once thought she was.

    3. Sarah is becoming more of a liability every day. First with the Troopergate scandal and now (according to the MSM) whipping up the stupid people to shouting out KILL HIM at her rallies, people calling BO a terrorist, etc... If anything actually happens to him, the party will be DONE. (I’m almost sure it already is.) When you get predominate members of the GOP saying the same thing, maybe it’s time we listened.

    4. The Ayres thing is ridiculous on it’s face. There’s NOTHING THERE. Obama was 8 when Ayers was a 60’s radical, and now he’s an award winning Educator (I know people who actually had him as a professor.) This looks especially bad because Todd Palin was a member of the AIP, & McCain was in the Keating 5. This tactic smacks of pathetic desperation.

    5. If McCain knows how to get Bin Laden - then he had better DO IT NOW. If he has all this knowledge, then the best thing he could do is share his intelligence, do it, and get the job done. That would be putting country first, and he’d probably win the election. Talking about it in the debates makes him look like a first class a-hole because he’s using it as a bribe to get elected. That is not Country First.

    9. That ACORN is actually getting press (finally) is a good thing, but just because it’s about voter fraud (which ALL voter fraud across the board, on both sides needs to be brought to light - and there’s plenty - and stopped), however, it’s not going to stick either, because it looks again, like a desperate move. It doesn’t matter that BO’s firm represented ACORN 1995. NO ONE CARES. They care that they’re going to lose their jobs because the credit market is frozen. Some of our biggest clients (including HUGE MONEY law firms) cannot make payroll because the credit market is frozen. (If you think lawsuits take forever, it’s even longer for the money to come thru...)

    10. Talking about Obama’s NAME is the most pathetic of all. Seriously. It makes the party look especially stupid, as if your NAME had anything to do with your ACTIONS. Cassius Clay changed his name to Mohammad Ali - and became a Muslim. Do you actually think anyone thought LESS of HIM when he did that??? And the endless videos on youtube of stupid white people at the McCain/Palin rallies saying Obama’s NAME=terrorist makes us look like a party full of uneducated IDIOTS - and if that’s what we’ve become, then I’M DONE. I was once in the SMART, EDUCATED GOP - WTF happened????

    Bottom line, if the party doesn’t GROW UP, and start acting honorable again, then it’s OVER. The more negative we get, the dumber we look, and the bigger we’re going to lose.

    Of course, that is MY OPINION. But I’d like to see a little class, grace, and intelligence from our side, and that has been severely lacking, and I am sickened by it.

    IF WE CAN’T WIN ON THE ISSUES, THEN WE DON’T DESERVE TO WIN.

    I don’t think I’m voting at this point.

    This is some scary stuff people!! Especially after several members of the House or REP stated they had been threatened with martial law if they did not pass the bail out bill.

    And Posse Comitatus has been suspended by Bush - just google it and you’ll find plenty of proof.

    Where they hell is Cheney lately? I seriously think we’re not going to have any election. They don’t want McCain OR Obama - they’re not going to give up any power, I’m convinced. That’s why Bush tried to ram thru that first bill with no oversight.

    Bank holiday? With the markets falling daily??

    This seriously scares me, and most people aren’t paying attention.

    I sincerely hope she doesn't stoop to that kind of cheap bullying behavior. I really expect a lot more from her. (Granted, those doofuses who were making jokes at a serious question deserved what they got.) It might work in AK for a gubernatorial debate, but on the national stage it's never going to fly for a VP candidate whose running during some of the worst times in our nations history.

    While it would be funny to watch the left get their collective panties in a bunch, it's the undecideds and independent voters she needs to win over, and if she's not seriously all over the issues, knowing her stuff inside and out, she's only going to look as if she's pontificating, or trying to avoid the question because she doesn't understand it.

    Personally, I think you're going to see a lot of class from her on Thursday!

    You don't fight back by saying, "Stop picking on my vice president!" If Palin is going to succeed at this level then she's going to have to recognize questions like this for what they are and deal with them effectively on the fly.

    It looked like she brought her dad there to help out. I was appalled.

    At our mommy group this morning we agreed, she can either hold her own or she can’t- but this made her look weak to us. You never bring someone else with you on an interview! Does the McCain campaign not trust her? What are they thinking? Why do they try to hide her and control her every move? The only way she will get better at these interviews is if they let her have them- by herself. Let her go!


    YEESSSS!!!! OMG!!! And McCain wouldn't even let her SPEAK!!! The are so OVERHANDLING her, and it's making her (and in turn, the entire ticket) look worse every single day!

    I thought it was especially stupid to cry "gotcha-journalism" as if Sarah can't handle a question from someone. It also makes them look too good to answer a question. Hey McCain! You work for US, and we vote for you. That's also not how to put the MSM in their place. Just LET HER SPEAK. She can handle a question from ANYONE! LET HER DO IT. And if she can't, then McCain's an idiot, and I'd like to know now.

    I am dumbfounded about how they're acting lately. They're acting like the dems for fraksake! They're the ones that always whine, "Don't ask hard questions, you play too rough!! waaaaaaaaah!!!" WTF??? What's happened to all the FIGHT? A weak term like "gotcha-journalism"???? Really? THAT'S THE BEST YOU GOT???

    It was ridiculous for them to even try to make this into an issue. OMG! She answered a question!!! THE SKY IS FALLING! I thought she did fine. Her answer was, "we'll do what's necessary to handle the terrorists." I'm sorry, but that was a good answer. What was wrong with it???

    If they keep overreacting like this, then we're in deep trouble folks.

    "“Could it be because of the ‘mark to market’ aspect and by ending that accounting method the failing assets could be held in limbo long enought to recover market capitalization and grow the economy?”

    THIS BILL HAD MARK TO MARKET SUSPENSION IN IT! Section 132.

    It’s sad when we say “do X instead of this bill” and it turns out to be in the bill already.

    I fear that too many freepers JUST DONT GET IT. The political ramifications anyway. They think the political vote is ‘no’ since the bill is not popular. Well, guess what, medicine never is, but if you are hired to be a doctor and you let the patient die instead of giving him medecine, you’d be fired and worse. That is what the Dems will tag on the Republicans. If the economic crisis worsens or dominates the news until the election, it will be a GOP wipeout that will make 2006 look like a picnic. It’s the ultimate folly and the Democrats and MSM will make today’s GOP out to be Hoover II whether fair or not.

    This is JMHO. The markets are clearly in shock on"


    Very well said indeed.

    If you have money, buy GOLD or Euros.

    I only wish it was as simple as "letting these banks/businesses/stupid borrowers/ fail, and they'll learn their lesson." That's tuff talk, but we're waaaaaaaaaay past that point unfortunately.

    Sure, I wish these a-hole CEOs, derivative brokers, and crooked mortgage brokers would all be arrested for financial/bank/securities fraud and embezzlement etc.... we could pay for this "bail out/shoreup/whatever the frak you want to call it" with their money/assets. (Did you know that most people who qualified for an ARM loan also qualified for a nice, traditional, fixed 30-yr mortgage as well, but were not TOLD because the brokers made WAY MORE MONEY on the ARM loans???) But my little dream of those fraks sitting in prison is never going to happen because Washington is largely full of cowards, most of whom know very little about global economics, or he fact Wall Street has been turned into a giant Casino/Ponsi-scheme.

    However, SOMETHING MUST be done. So you had better know exactly WHAT you're cheering for, i.e. exact wording of the bill that was voted on, what is plan B, is there a plan B? C? D? Because doing NOTHING will be the worst thing EVER I'm afraid.

    The problem is we can't wait much longer to figure it out because it's not just the US economy that's involved. If the dollar is devalued and China, the Middle East, Russia, Europe, and most of the rest of the universe all decide to switch to trading in the petro Euro instead of the Petro USD - then we'll be worse than Argentina was when everyone woke up and there money was worthless in their own country.

    The good news is: China owns most of our debt, and it's in USDs not Euros - at least for now. However, since China is the largest "shareholder" in proverbial USA "stock" (debt) they could, like Steve Jobs, as the largest shareholder of Disney, could waltz in and say "As the largest shareholder of the company, I am going to run things now..." not that they ever would... or how they would do that I have to idea, so I'm just talking out of my own proverbial a$$ because this is such a clu$terFRAK.
