Obama Disses, Smears Joe the Plumber, Disciples Laugh

And here we have the real Obama.

Trashing a guy in public trying to live the American dream and buy his own business. Someone trying to create jobs and stimulate the economy.

Obama makes fun of him for political gain.

Barack Obama is a disgrace, as is anyone dumb enough to vote for our new Socialist Overlord.

Yard sign shenanigans again.

Over night someone stole my Robin Vos yard sign.

My other signs are all there, just the Vos sign was stolen.

This is getting ridiculous.

If the government should pay, why should I?

After seven months, Hawai'i eliminates the nation's only universal child health care program after families who could afford private insurance dropped it in order to get "free" coverage.

Questions. Just questions.

Ok.
Picture this post using your best Don LaFontaine voice:

In a world……that has begged for the US to vote for Obama, Hollywood raises incredible amount of money for Him , the US and world news media is 99% behind The One and has already declared Him the victor by a landslide – why are there people going around in the “swing” states hoping to win by cheating?

In a world……where there is 24/7 news coverage, why has the media taken less than 48 hours to investigate Joe the Plumbers home finances, but it has taken over 2 years to investigate The Chosen One’s financial dealings with a convicted felon?

In a world…..where we are told that the surroundings in the inner city, for example, tend to define you, why does the news media keep telling us that wanting to know more about The Messiah's links to people like Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, et. al. are nothing but racist attacks?

In a world…..where a VP candidate is crucified for spelling a word “wrong”, why isn’t another VP candidate crucified for
a) not being able to count to 3?
b) not knowing US history better than an 5th grader?

In a world…..where people are looking for blame on the whole housing crises thing, why has no-one in the media connected the dots between Fannie/Freddie/Bubba/Acorn and the Messiah?


If you would like to see the thrilling conclusion to such an improbable story, go to your local polling booths on Nov. 4th.
Just don't stay home.

Big Ed can't take a simple question...

What a cry-baby. This is the same man that we mentioned who said it would be fine with him if the Dems cheat.

Anyone see this man before?

If this McCain was the one that had been around the previous 8 months, imho the polls for this election might be a little different.


Obama was not as funny, seemed uncomfortable making fun of himself and was nowhere near as magnanimous towards McCain.

Joe Biden Can't Count

Mr Gaffe strikes again.

Well at least one of them finally admitted they favor cheating.

Yesterday afternoon at about 3:50 pm on WRJN in Racine, leftie radio talk show host Ed Schultz said live on his program, "If they do a little cheating, I wouldn't mind, he he he, it is all about winning."

Finally, a leftie admits they are in favor of cheating to win.

They'll kick you out of the club for admitting that Big Ed.

Palestra keeps doing the work the mainstream media refuses to do.

District Update Regarding Parent Complaint of 8th Grade Textbook
(10/15/2008)
Due to a Racine Unified School District parent complaint regarding the 8th grade literature selection “Dreams from My Father” by Barack Obama, Superintendent James Shaw has directed Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Jeff Weiss, to complete the review policy and procedures. For more detailed information on the review that will be conducted, click

Perhaps you should also discuss with teachers Mr. Shaw covering both sides of the issues. This is not just about the choice of one book. This is about a liberal agenda being forced down our kids throats without any concept of the big picture.

Three days this close to an election and one side gets a big sloppy kiss while the other is ignored.

Ohio Vote Fraud.

Ohio's Secretary of State continue's to try and steal this election.

Now she has appealed to the Supreme Court crying about how the meanie Federal Court told her to follow the freaking law. She'll just keep appealing until the election is over.

Heck, in Madison the leftie federal judge will not even come out with a decision.

The Dems are trying to steal the election people, rise up and let your voice be heard!

Obama will not listen.

Happy Anniversary Babe...

Is Fahrenheit 451 next up?

So I while listening to the radio the other day, a conservative Brit (who knew one even existed, huh?) came on who referred to the pending coronation of the messiah as the beginning of “benign totalitarianism” and not socialism.
So think about it.
This is what’s being promised:
They want to know who you are voting for….while claiming you need protection from evil business owners and not the Union thugs.
They believe they have to take care of your every medical need….whether you want it or not. Whether you are legal or not. How can that be wrong?
They don’t want you to have any more than “the person behind you”….you know, spread your wealth around.

Call it socialism or not, this all started with the over the top PC movement. I can understand that some of the things considered PC are actually a sign of a maturity and evolution in a civilization.
Needed even.
The problem is the slippery slope it put us on.
As with all movements, there are always those that just take it too far. Which is what happened to the far right of the Democratic party.
These are no longer the Democrats of JFK. Hell, Ted stopped being a responsible Kennedy when he lumbered out of Poucha Pond on that fateful night long ago.
No one needs to be fully responsible for anything they do, everyone gets a trophy.
No one is better than anyone else – after all, that’s the liberal view of the American dream.

Don’t look now but, Kurt Vonnegut seems to have been only a few years early on his prediction of such an unrealistic future.

All about the internals.

NRO does a bang up job of explaining what is going on in the internals of the polling we are hearing about.

Here is the simple analysis.

The pollsters are using a lousy sample.

In 2004 the electorate broke down 37% Democrat, 37% Republican and 26% Squishies...

In a recent Newsweek poll showing Obama with an absurd 11 point lead their sample was 40% Democrat, 27% Republican and 30% Squishies.

Simply put if you skew your sample you are skewing your result.

You lefties can keep doing the happy dance if you'd like but what you are falling prey to is a biased media trying to influence the result. This election is within the margin of victory and the fact is the majority of the Squishies are going for McCain.

There will be much stomping of feet and crying foul when the votes are counted because this thing is much closer than you think it is. I firmly believe Obama is going to lose unless ACORN is successful enough in their attempt to cheat their way to victory in the swing states.

Three weeks to go folks, this is getting interesting.

H/T Jason.

The indoctrination of our youth part II, get out the vote.

Context matters folks. In the piece that we released on Monday evening that caught national attention yesterday people tried to make it about Barack (censored) Obama; it is not. This is about a school system and a textbook publisher pushing an agenda and they are using Barack Obama as a conduit to promote that leftist agenda.

Racine Unified has claimed that the textbook in question was "adopted in 2007 and was used during the 2007-2008 school year." In actuality, it was ordered in 2007, when Barack Obama had already established himself as a major candidate for President, the textbook has a copyright date of 2008. However, while the purchase of a textbook which contains a positive piece on a contemporary political figure who the students could conceivably find themselves in a position to vote for someday is in itself troubling, it is more troubling that a teacher showed the poor judgment of spending at least three days studying the speeches and writing of a single candidate. In its statement, the school district claimed that the "The Racine Unified School District DOES NOT endorse any candidate or political party" - however, the school district provides tacit endorsement through its focus on a single candidate. This tacit endorsement is reinforced through class comments as well as teachers wearing campaign shirts and buttons. This is simple folks, you can not and you should not spend three days this close to an election on one candidate while ignoring the other, whether that person was a confirmed candidate at the time of publication or not. What matters is the teacher focused on one candidate while ignoring the other weeks before an election; if the teacher was that dumb to not see the issue here, they should be fired.


This is what makes this indoctrination, not education. Many leftist commentors from Monday’s piece made the comment that these 8th graders could not even vote. True, but they will be able to in 4 or 5 years. The schools are willingly pushing a liberal agenda to try and indoctrinate kids towards that ideology. In a similar manner, Al Gore’s lie-filled global warming “documentary” is being forced down our kids throats across the country.

Our schools are pushing an agenda and they are sending their kids home to spread that agenda to their parents. Get ‘em young, keep ‘em for life, and let’s use tax monies to do it.

Of greater concern, however, is the material support provided by Racine schools for Democratic candidates through students organized in "Get Out The Vote" squads and deployed throughout Racine's most reliably Democratic wards on election day in previous years. These squads consist of students who are enticed with the prospect of a day off from school, as well as extra credit grades, for participation. Horlick High School has historically had the biggest program, although there are reports that other schools may participate this year. Horlick, which has been sanctioned by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for failure to make adequate yearly progress for three years in a row, apparently views political activism as more important than instructional time. Although Horlick's district includes some solidly Republican areas, such as the suburbs of Caledonia and Wind Point, students are never sent to those areas. Instead, they are sent to wards in the city of Racine that are 70%, 80%, or even 90% Democratic leaning. These are exactly the same areas that the completely corrupt and dishonest ACORN works where it is important to get out the vote only in “swing” states. This de facto Democratic Get Out the Vote apparatus has been used for national as well as local elections, and of course to support school referenda, “please vote to increase your own taxes so we can keep our athletics and extra-curriculars”.

Many of the students involved have idealistic motives for participating, and view themselves as personally conservative, and are unaware of the partisan impact of the event. Yes, partisan teachers are using our kids to further their personal ideologies. This program is organized in a taxpayer-funded school, by teachers paid by the taxpayers, and taking advantage of a platform provided to them by the taxpayers, and utilizing taxpayer funded supplies and resources to pull it all off. Through indoctrination of future voters, as in the textbook case, and through partisan oriented Get Out the Vote efforts, Racine schools have effectively been co-opted by the teacher's union as an adjunct force in their support of the Democratic Party.

Our kids deserve a BALANCED education, they have not been getting that balanced education for years and it is only getting worse.


What set this story off as a national fire-storm yesterday was an understanding by some of the big picture here, liberal indoctrination being forced on our kids in subtle and not so subtle ways by the school system. Remember, the publisher of the text was a huge and frequent supporter financially of Obama, Dick Durbin and the Democratic Party, including donations to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. This person has not made one donation to any Republican. Is there any wonder he is trying to push a leftist agenda in his text books?

When caught, Racine Unified threw up their hands and claimed stupidity, “we haven’t had any other complaints.” Read the comments here, there were plenty of them.

I got a bunch of emails of support yesterday including some from democrats who could easily see how outrageous this one-sided presentation was. Even if the text was one sided the teacher should have, but did not, provide balance.

This is but a small example of a much larger problem. The school will go ahead and send out the kids in 3 weeks to get out the vote and they’ll do it strictly in Democratic districts and they’ll get away with it again.

Consider this your first official complaint.

Hey, Government "Accountability" Board, look at this.

From Leslie Carbone:

Court Rules Ohio Must Verify Voters

It just got a little harder to commit voter fraud in Ohio.The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ordered Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to establish a system to verify hundreds of thousands of recently registered voters by Friday, to make voter eligibility information available to all 88 county election boards, and to use government records to investigate potential voter registration fraud.

Get that one Wisconsin? A Federal judge just ordered Ohio to do EXACTLY what Wisconsin is refusing to even try to do.

There is no accoutability in Wisconsin. The Democrats have created a situation where fraud is too easy to pull off and too difficult to prove, and they like it that way.

Alaska glaciers grew this year, thanks to colder weather

By Craig Medred Anchorage Daily News

Two hundred years of glacial shrinkage in Alaska, and then came the winter and summer of 2007-2008.

Unusually large amounts of winter snow were followed by unusually chill temperatures in June, July and August.

"In mid-June, I was surprised to see snow still at sea level in Prince William Sound," said U.S. Geological Survey glaciologist Bruce Molnia. "On the Juneau Icefield, there was still 20 feet of new snow on the surface of the Taku Glacier in late July. At Bering Glacier, a landslide I am studying, located at about 1,500 feet elevation, did not become snow free until early August.
"In general, the weather this summer was the worst I have seen in at least 20 years."

Never before in the history of a research project dating back to 1946 had the Juneau Icefield witnessed the kind of snow buildup that came this year. It was similar on a lot of other glaciers too.

"It's been a long time on most glaciers where they've actually had positive mass balance," Molnia said.

That's the way a scientist says the glaciers got thicker in the middle. Read the complete story at adn.com

Papa's 7pm late notice, Jimi is buying.

A local liberal newspaper.

When I find something in the local paper or have need to credit them for this or that, I mention them by name and credit them appropriately for their work.

When they mention something going on here they credit "a local conservative blog" and do so in the last paragraph of the story (without a link).

So, in the future, instead of mentioning the Racine paper by name I shall credit, "a local liberal newspaper".

UPDATE: I just spoke with Janine Anderson at the Racine Journal Times. She's one of the good ones down there and we have always had a cordial relationship.

She's updating their story, crediting RDW appropriately and providing a link.

Thanks Janine.

Racine schools hand out textbook with 15 page Obama love-fest...

This comes from the mother of a Racine Unified School District 8th grader. She has asked to keep her name out of this but frankly I can't add much to what she has said here but I do have one question. Did the teacher give equal time and a fair discussion about John McCain and his "life of service"? I think I already know the answer to that question. This is not education folks, this is indoctrination.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!



My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.

I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an
www.obama2004.com sign.


Now I understand that many teachers are liberals, but does the school have the right to shove Obama down our kid's throats? All the kids grouped together and read the story. After that, they discussed it... I guess it appears that Obama is planning ahead. If he doesn't get his coveted Presidency, Obama is going to make sure, that the younger generations know all about him, and his "life of service".

If you would like to see the 15 page story on Obama, it appears that you can order this book online. There is a note in the book that says, For more on Barack Obama, visit the Literature Center at
www.ClassZone.com The book is: Wisconsin - 8th grade - McDougal Littell Literature - copyright 2008. The Obama story starts on page 830. I hope you will take the time to look at this book. I'm really angry about this - In fact, I would love to rip the pages right out of this book.

By the way, you might find this interesting: I did a little checking on McDougal Littell, and it appears that MCDOUGAL, ALFRED L CHICAGO , IL 60611 - N/A/RETIRED has been making contributions to Barack Obama's campaign!

I found that information on this website.
http://www.newsmeat.com/fec/bystate_detail.php?st=IL&last=MCDOUGAL&first=ALFRED
Now I'm not an expert at these things (just a PTA mom), but It looks to me like Alfred McDougal is connected to McDougal Littell the same company that publishes the 8th grade textbook that has 15 pages on Obama. Like I said, I'm not an expert, but I'm sure you have someone who can delve into the dirty little details.

I guess my question is: Is it ethical for an Obama supporter to publish an educational book which has a 15 page Barrack Obama story in it? If the tax payers are paying for these books, why is it okay for McDougal Littell to promote Obama? This really bothers me. I would have no problem with it, if Obama had actually done something important. Why is Obama being put up on a pedestal, before he actually wins the pedestal? All I can say, is we can thank the liberal media, and now the liberal book publishers. Thanks to them, I'm sure there are probably thousands of these books all across the United States.


Great question, and the answer is no, it is not ethical.

Many convicted felons remain on voter rolls, according to Sun Sentinel investigation

Thousands who should be ineligible are registered to vote

Reported by Peter Franceschina, Sally Kestin, John Maines, Megan O'Matz and Dana Williams Written by Sally Kestin

October 12, 2008

More than 30,000 Florida felons who by law should have been stripped of their right to vote remain registered to cast ballots in this presidential battleground state, a Sun Sentinel investigation has found.

Many are faithful voters, with at least 4,900 turning out in past elections.

Another 5,600 are not likely to vote Nov. 4 — they're still in prison.

Of the felons who registered with a party, Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one. (Democrat felons outnumber Republican felons 2 to 1, who knew?)

Florida's elections chief, Secretary of State Kurt Browning, acknowledged his staff has failed to remove thousands of ineligible felons because of a shortage of workers and a crush of new registrations in this critical swing state.

Browning said he was not surprised by the newspaper's findings. "I'm kind of shocked that the number is as low as it is," he said.

Asked how many ineligible felons may be on Florida's rolls, Browning said, "We don't know."

Go ahead and read the rest.

The real McCain

Be afraid.
Be very afraid.
I don’t get how the media missed all this. The fact that they did should shut anyone who thought they were biased up. And it proves once and for all that the Repub’s are nothing but a bunch of mouth-breathing, drooling ignoramuses.

Point 1:
McCain purchased one of his many, many houses through “sweetheart” deals with felons – and not thru his ridiculously rich wife. And, because of these actions and not heeding the warnings of his opponent about sub-prime loans, the rest of us are now feeling the effects. Also turns out his buddies are the principal cause of the whole Fannie/Freddie debacle. Hell, 2 of the guys that cooked the books to steal millions are advisors (although he continues to deny it, and the righties believe it ‘cause of the description I used above).

Point 2:
I’m not sure how he could even BE in the military knowing all those ex-KKK members that used to bomb churches and those radical right-wing nuts that bombed abortion clinics. Hell, he SAYS he was born off the mainland, but who really knows? His grandma/sister/brother are probably just confused about the details. Like…..where the hell were you born?

Point 3:
He was (until people started noticing) a member of a church where the pastor continued to speak on the evils of the black man. How it’s the black mans fault for our deteriorating inner cities. How the black man just wants to keep white America down so they can get ahead.

I cant believe it. For the life of me I ……what?
Huh?

Crud.

My wife just informed me that I may have my facts a little messed up.
Damn, I could have sworn I wrote all the things down correctly.

Oh, well, I’m just a stupid blogger.
