After the Truth-In-Advertising office got a hold of the Obama ad campaigns, they re-released this particular poster – – –

Yep — no posts for a few months.
Emotionally, I’ve been through the old-style washing machine; the kind that has two rollers for squeezing the water out of your clothes. Been trying to decide if I think this country is worth keeping anymore. Why?
- A subversive coup has taken place — with the approval of more than half the US population.
- The media has totally sold out. Do you think for a millisecond that the MSM would have allowed McCain to continue on his campaign without producing his birth certificate?
- Many politicians have a passive-aggressive streak, but the president-elect is blatantly passive-aggressive. He even flaunts it.
Essentially, time is up. The Biblical ‘end times’ is upon us. To borrow a phrase that was born out of the Bible, the writing is on the wall. With that, my give-a-damn is in serious need of repair, and frankly I just don’t give a damn enough to fix it.
I’m juxtaposed between what’s in my heart (wanting to believe what I was taught — that the Constitution is actually worth something and the government actually works the way it’s supposed to) and what’s in my head (that the powers running things are hidden; that the US Government is simply actors in a big production number; that the country has become the proverbial boiled frog).
They did a good job in those government schools. I believed it. I really did.
And I still want to . . .
. . . but I know better.
So I may venture in and out of this blog to bitch once in a while, but for the most part, I’m spending time reconciling my heart with my head; Because although I WANT to believe my heart, I know better.
I’m no liberal, but I certainly enjoy reading the Confluence blog, hosted by devout Democrats. The reason I enjoy reading their blog? They’re not lemmings! They’re not partisan hacks. They are true thinkers, and as such, they don’t suck up to the official Party line …. just as I, as a conservative, don’t suck up to the official Party line in the “R” column.
I find the following a somewhat humorous observation. It is taken from a Confluence post entitled How to Win the Presidential Argument: Democrats Don’t Get It:
Obama’s campaign, and his followers, have done nothing whatsoever to reach out to the Americans who refuse to worship at the altar of Obama, even those in their own Party. In fact, they have done everything in their power to further alienate us. Throughout the campaign, we recalcitrant Clinton Dems, Independents and Republicans have gotten the message loud and clear: Go The Fuck Away.
Thank you. I’ve been saying for months that Obama is nothing short of an egotist in an empty suit. And here are some true thinking Democrats who see him the same way.
The same Confluence post also states:
” … for knowing that Obama is illegitimate, unqualified and unelectable, I personally have been accused of being stupid, angry, a liar, immature, hateful, a Rush Limbaugh devotee, and a Republican by people who do not know me. People who do know me have been telling me I’m wrong and I should listen to Gloria Steinem and Hillary Clinton when making my choice. Why? Am I not allowed to do my own research and make up my own mind?”
Here’s to people who can think for themselves!
For anyone who would like to accuse me of being partisan — bite me. I’ve been clear from the outset of this campaign that McCain doesn’t have enough money to buy my vote. As a thinker on the right side of the political spectrum, I say “hats off” to my fellow-thinkers on the left side of the political spectrum for acknowledging that the current Democratic nominee is unqualified.
It’s not a partisan issue, people. It’s just a fact.
In increasing increments, Barack Hussein Obama is showing us what kind of man he really is. His true colors are shining through.
As an observer of people, I find it amazing that the man who was going to bring civility to the presidential campaign has morphed from being “civil” to being a street-talking blowhard, talking smack. Take him out of the “presidential” spotlight, and just listen to him. His voice tone, his attitudes, his word choices — all come across with an over-inflated ego.
Plain and simple, it’s become obvious he’s just another street talker who has learned the art of talking smack. The problem? His lifelong ambition has been to be President. But think again — does seven years in the Illinois legistlature (voting “present” as often as he did) and only ONE active year in the US Senate before launching his presidential bid makes him a qualified leader?
It is unbelievable that people fall for such a smooth talker. But a smooth talker he is, and as much as I like my liberal friends, they’re falling for a line of crap. A smooth talker does not make good leader.
And now that Obama is behind in the polls, we’re seeing just how “smooth” his talk is. It’s one long string of passive-aggressive insults. Is THIS what we want in a leader?
THINK! Really think!! Is a passive-aggressive smack-talker what you want as a leader?
This guy ‘s colors are really showing through. The egotistic little boy from Illinois gets up and taunts the Republican ticket with lipstick and dead fish comparisons. Even one of Hillary Clinton’s advisors said to take it as anything other than a direct insult to Palin and McCain is absurd. But really, little boy Obama makes a “plausibly deniable” comment blasting Palin and McCain—and then this afternoon he tries to make it look like everyone else is playing outside the fair game rules except him with his “ENOUGH!” comment.
This behavior is right out of the passive-aggressive playbook.
Yep — they cool cat can make great speeches. He’s practiced at the art of reading the teleprompter. But get him off the cuff and he’s stuttering and blundering his way through like any typical empty suit.
Any person who’s ever been set up as a target by a passive-aggresive manipulator ought to see this guy’s techniques for what they are — exactly that: Passive-aggressive manipulation.
It is tremendously disturbing that more than 40 percent of the US population thinks this guy has enough maturity and intellectual capacity lead the country. He is nothing but an egotistical little boy who has strategized very well how to climb fast to the top. In strictly objective terms, he has ZERO leadership experience.
People who support him say they have hope for a better tomorrow— hell, we all have that hope. But hope is not a strategy. And this manipulative empty suit is not going to provide what people want, no matter how hard they want it.
Wake up, people. He’s a passive-aggressive manipulator who’s going to continue lying and “MAKING STUFF UP” about himself as he goes along, just to get your vote.
Don’t misunderstand — I’m not supporting McCain. At all. But Obama couldn’t give me enough money to buy his vote. I would never vote for someone so slippery and passive-aggressive as this egotistical little boy from Illinois.
Be careful of what you wish for, you just may get it. According to Wall Street Journal blogger Steven Waldman, the Democrats have been wanting a fired-up religious left for quite a while. Well, now that one is emerging, it seems they might not like what’s happening as a result.
In a recent post by Waldman, it appears Mr. Tony Campolo (a rather loud and obnoxious left-wing evangelist) happens to be sitting on the Democrat’s platform committee. He and another left-wing evangelical (Jim Wallis) are pretty adamant about making a stink to get the wording changed in the Dem’s platform to seek an reduction in abortions.
The now famous phrase “a woman’s right to choose” was created in the effort to get abortion laws passed — Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the founders of NARAL, says as they were brainstorming catch-phrases to spin off to the media, they were laughing at the “woman’s right to choose.” But it stuck. This is, after all, America, where “Freedom of Choice” is a watchword.
However, eventually Nathanson came to realize that all the abortions he was performing was the taking of a human life. Strangely, even women I know who advocate legal abortions acknowledge that it’s MURDER. But they still advocate it because of the “10,000 women who died each year from illegal abortions.”
Problem: Nathanson confessed they lied their asses off to the media: That in 1972, only 39 women died in this country from illegal abortions. But NARAL was putting out false info in their press releases that 10,000 women had died from illegal abortions. They knew the media would suck it up. And they did.
Puffery. Lies. Deceptions. Nobody bothered to check the facts. And they still don’t. They just want to preserve the right to MURDER innocent babies based on lies published by NARAL (follow the money, folks – the abortion industry generates over $500,000,000 in business each year) and spun out to the ears of the Jane Q. Public by a lazy media who would not verify NARAL’s numbers.
You want choice? The choice happens when a couple chooses to have sex. That’s the choice.
Any other choice is this: “Do I give this baby the gift of seeing the light of day, or do I MURDER it?”
PS. Here are some interesting observations about the topic
At Barak “Ears” Hussein Obama’s recent Indiana rally he “misspoke” again — talking about the “the bomb” at Pearl Harbor.
Well, as I was watching the YouTube clip, I noticed his podium had a sign that read: Judgment to Lead. Well, if it’s not true through his experience or his examples, at least they can put it on a sign. But I thought it would be fun to photoshop a few different signs and see which one the readers like best.
In other words, which phrase do you think describes the presumptive Democratic nominee, despite questions about his citizenship going unanswered?
Take a look, and in the comments section, tell us which one you think describes him best, and why.
Is it A:
Is it B:
OR — is it C:
Which gets your vote, and why?
