"Off the record, every suspicion you have about [mainstream media] MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working." ~ from an email by a media insider, published by Glenn Reynolds
That photo shows one bin full of "ACORN DUPLICATES." Voter registration duplicates. A few hundred of them. Those don't "just happen." Those happen with a systematic campaign of duplication, conducted by ACORN and PROJECT VOTE, which was Obama's baby in Chicago in 1992 and launched his Illinois State Senate run.

Democrat voters, do you really want it to be true that Republicans are more informed, more educated, more intelligent, think-for-themselves voters than Democrat voters?

If you don't want that to be true, then read the 13-year-old articles and the fraud reports about ACORN. Please, I beg you to learn the things that Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews and most "reporters" will never, ever tell you.


Do you even want proof? If you really did want proof, would you even bother to read further, or will you continue to stick your heads in the sand?

I really want to know. I really do.

I'm talking to all the college students and young urbane professionals especially, and Democrat voters in the blue and purple states in the Northeast, West Coast, Mid-Atlantic and elsewhere:

I know you want change. I want it too. I think Bush made some huge mistakes and he wasn't even my first choice way back when. McCain isn't even my choice. (I've written before that if I could be a Republocrat, I would.)

Democrat voters, I want to give you credit--I really do--for being intelligent, informed individuals who really, truly think for yourselves, but I am truly having a hard time when you swallow without chewing every. single. lie. the candidate and the media are spooning you.

Democrat voters, don't you even care to know about your candidate and his work side-by-side with Bill Ayers?

Don't you even care to know about Obama's running ACORN/ Project Vote, its fraudulent practices and how Obama was the lawyer who won for ACORN the right to promote the destructive subprime loans even more aggressively?

Don't you even care to know about Obama's support for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the root causes of the financial meltdown)?

Don't you even care to know about Obama's lies to you about the "four more years" blame on the Republicans for it, and his shockingly brazen, utter silence on his and the Democrats' responsibility for the crisis?

How can you not want to know these truths?

I'm not saying McCain hasn't gotten things wrong. He has.

But the things Obama and most of the media are telling you--and not telling you--are dangerous lies and omissions of truth that are very important for us all to know.

Many, many learned, experienced, and even objective people know these truths. These aren't just fictions the Right made up.

Doesn't it concern you in the least, that you might be completely fleeced by your guy? Shouldn't you be as concerned with knowing every truth about Obama as you are about knowing everything about Palin?

You don't really want to wake up on November 5th and only then, slowly start realizing what a huge mistake it was to not get 100% informed about what your candidate really has done and by whom he has been influenced.

Do you? REALLY?

This isn't "another four years of this failed [Republican/Bush] philosophy." This financial crisis was brought to you by the past four years of a DEMOCRAT-CONTROLLED CONGRESS (see the "Elected Democrats" link 6 paragraphs below this one) and TWO PAST DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTS WHO SUPPORTED AND SIGNED TWO VERSIONS OF A LAW THAT REQUIRED BANKS TO GIVE OUT MORTGAGES TO MANY MORE PEOPLE WHO WERE LIKELIEST TO DEFAULT AND COULD NOT AFFORD MORTGAGE PAYMENTS IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Read that damn link, all the way through.

This isn't about driving traffic to my site. I don't give a crap about that, don't look at my stats, and don't aspire to national spotlights like some bloggers do on both sides. If you want to read it and worry too much about driving eyeballs to my site, email me and I'll mail you the damn text and links.

This is about those of you who are not informed, getting educated, for once, about this financial crisis and other serious problems so that you will really know what you are about to do to the entire country.


Stern warnings have been issued since 2001 about the inevitability of this financial crisis, but not from any Democrat. No, the Democrats have done nothing but swear that "the sky isn't falling" when it came to these two GSEs (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) which brought about this whole meltdown:

Elected Democrats Who Defended Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and What They Said On The Record, Between 2003 and 2006, as reported by The Wall Street Journal:
  1. Sen. Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.; Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee; who also received the most money in contributions from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae of any elected official: $165,400, according to The Center for Responsive Politics,
  2. Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.; chairman of the House Financial Services Committee)
  3. Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.; Vice Chairman of the Senate Democratic Caucus and the 4th-ranking Democrat in the Senate)
  4. Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.)
  5. Sen. Thomas Carper (D., Del.)
  6. Rep. Gregory Meeks, (D., N.Y.)
  7. Sen. Jack Reed (D., R.I.)
Are there really any honest, informed Democrat voters out there at all? If so, they can't possibly still be touting the lie that Obama still spouts that "It's the Republicans who caused this mess."

Yet the continued existence of poll results like this merely prove the unbelievable and unbelievably dangerous fact that Obama's lie is working with most of the American public.

Are we really that stupid??

Obama continues to lie with a straight face, blaming Bush and McCain as well when he insinuates that McCain is the same as "four more years":
"This country can't afford another four years of this failed philosophy," Obama said after the shock-wave announcements that financial giant Lehman Brothers was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy while titan Merrill Lynch was being bought by Bank of America for about $50 billion.
Democrat voters, don't you even want to know what Obama did with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and his connections with Bill Ayers?
"William Ayers, who, in a piece published in The New York Times on September 11, 2001, said of his years in the Weather Underground: 'I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough.'"
Obama worked together with Ayers side-by-side on the board of The Woods Foundation for three years. Don't try to tell me that Ayers was just a "guy who lives in [Obama's] neighborhood" or who was, for those three years at the very least, "not somebody who [Obama] exchange[s] ideas from on a regular basis."

In that article, even Hillary Clinton called Obama on all this and more, and no. one's. holding. Obama. accountable. for. it.

Don't you even want to know about Obama's involvement in ACORN and Project Vote and how these groups are actually trying to increase fraudulent voting to benefit the Democrats and giving voting rights back to convicts in prison? Here are just some of their criminal acts:
Since 1998, ACORN and Project Vote employees were implicated in voter registration fraud allegations in more than a dozen states.
  1. In 2003, ACORN employees in Missouri turned in a batch of thousands of registration forms — of which only about 40 percent were valid, with another 1,000 believed to be attempts to register voters illegally.
  2. Following Colorado’s 2004 election, two ex-ACORN employees were convicted of perjury for submitting false voter registration forms; one ex-ACORN employee admitted to registering her friends 40 times.
  3. In 2004, police pulled over a former ACORN employee who had more than 300 voter
    registration cards in the trunk of his car, many of which had not been turned in within the legal time limit. [Ed.Note: what do you want to bet that those were Republican cards?]
  4. In 2005, Virginia authorities found that of a sample of Project Vote-gathered registrations, 83% were rejected for using false or questionable information.
  5. In 2007, King County, Washington officials announced the indictment of seven workers ACORN had hired to register voters, calling the episode the "worst case of voter registration fraud in the history of the state." At least three of those individuals have pleaded guilty and ACORN was forced to pay a $25,000 settlement.
Barack Obama ran ACORN's Project Vote in Chicago and his highly successful voter registration drive was credited with getting the disgraced former Senator Carol Moseley-Braun elected.
It gets worse:

Obama represented ACORN in the Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 1994 suit against redlining [a claim that banks discriminated against minorities in mortgage lending]. Most significant of all, ACORN was the driving force behind a 1995 regulatory revision pushed through by the Clinton Administration that greatly expanded the CRA and laid the groundwork for the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac borne financial crisis we now confront. Barack Obama was the attorney representing ACORN in this effort. With this new authority, ACORN used its subsidiary, ACORN Housing, to promote subprime loans more aggressively.
Watch the video from Obama's campaign of him bragging about his spearheading of Project Vote.

Any folks voting for Obama who really do keep your heads in the sand and don't try to understand the truths about him that the major media withholds from you, sadly will earn every insulting adjective about your lack of intelligence and maturity that some on the right have been calling you.

And that would be a damn shame.

"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."

The writings expressed herein are protected expression by virtue of the First Amendment of the United States of America and by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular Articles 18 and 19, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948:

1) The First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

"The Free Exercise Clause reserves the right of American citizens to accept any religious belief and engage in religious rituals. The wording in the free-exercise clauses of state constitutions that religious “[o]pinion, expression of opinion, and practice were all expressly protected” by the Free Exercise Clause.[1] The clause protects not just religious beliefs but actions made on behalf of those beliefs. More importantly, the wording of state constitutions suggest that “free exercise envisions religiously compelled exemptions from at least some generally applicable laws.”[2] The Free Exercise Clause not only protects religious belief and expression; it also seems to allow for violation of laws, as long as that violation is made for religious reasons."

2) Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, signed by the U.S.A. in 1948, states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."

3) Article 19 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."
