Columnist says about Obama

What a Black Columnist has to say about Obama.  Be sure to read this in its entirety…

 

 

“…Ken Blackwell – Columnist for the New York Sun 
It’s an amazing time to be alive in America. We’re in a year of firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman candidate; the first viable African-American candidate; and, a candidate who is the first front running freedom fighter over 70. The next president of America will be a first.

We won’t truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we judge every candidate by where they stand. We won’t arrive where we should be until we no longer talk about skin color or gender.     Now that Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies and his politics.  

The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a nominee until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now the frontrunner, and its time America takes a closer and deeper look at him.

Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He’s not. He’s the next George McGovern. And it’s time people learned the facts.

Because the truth is that Mr. Obama is the single most liberal senator in the entire U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy, Bernie Sanders, or Mrs. Clinton.    Never in my life have I seen a presidential frontrunner whose rhetoric is so far removed from his record. Walter Mondale promised to raise our taxes, and he lost. George McGovern promised military weakness, and he lost. Michael Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda, and he lost.

Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he’s not behind in the polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were in a beauty pageant.    Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting past red and blue, to lead the United States of America. But let’s look at the more defined strokes of who he is underneath this superficial “beauty.”

Start with national security, since the president’s most important duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting without preconditions with Mahmud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was off the table against terrorists – something no president has ever taken off the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s. Even Democrats who have worked in national security condemned all of those remarks. Mr. Obama is a foreign-policy novice who would put our national security at risk.

Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health care system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements, created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can live a life that no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to raise taxes on “the rich.” How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes. How to fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes. Free college? Raise taxes. Socialize medicine? Raise taxes. His solution to everything is to have government take it over. Big Brother on steroids, funded by your paycheck.

Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to open a stadium rally by saying, “All praise and glory to God!” but says that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have “hijacked” – hijacked – Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion, and promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing. His spiritual leaders endorse homosexual marriage, and he is moving in that direction. In Illinois, he refused to vote against a statewide ban – ban – on all handguns in the state. These are radical left, Hollywood, and San Francisco values, not Middle America values.
The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election. Mrs. Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Obama could win if people don’t start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision of “bringing America together” means saying that those who disagree with his agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the country means adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any conflicting beliefs.

But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a speaker he is and – yes – they’re talking about his race. Those should never be the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama’s radical agenda sets him far outside the American mainstream, to the left of Mrs. Clinton.
It’s time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election of firsts, let’s first make sure we elect the person who is qualified to be our president in a nuclear age during a global civilization war.”  What a Black Columnist has to say about Obama.  Be sure to read this in its entirety.

Comments from unknown source:  Kind of scary, wouldn’t you think.  Remember–God is good, and is in time, on time–every time.
According to The Book of Revelations the anti-Christ is:

The anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal … the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything.    Is it OBAMA?? 
 

I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you can!  Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media outlet…do it!  


If you think I am crazy… I am sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the "unknown" candidate
 and certainly hope you won’t either. 

 

                                   

Student Loans in America

Letter by a Florida Teacher
To all of you that paid and still have student loans to pay off for your college:
Letter by a Florida Teacher
A teacher speaks:
This is a subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have adult
students at the school where I teach who are not US citizens and who get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay back required) plus other federal grants to go to school?
One student from the Dominican Republic told me that she didn’t want me to find a job for her after she finished my program, because she was getting housing from our housing department and she was getting PELL grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money left over.
She was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which is a special program (check it out) for immigrants and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go to school or training. The one student I just mentioned told me she was not going to be a U.S. citizen because she plans to return to the Dominican Republic someday and that she ‘loves HER country.’
I asked her if she felt guilty taking what the U.S. is giving her and then not even bothering to become a citizen and she told me that it doesn’t bother her, because that is what the money is there for!
I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if you ARE a U.S. citizen, you don’t qualify for their program. And all the while, I am working a full day, my son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and everyone in my family works and pays for our education.
Something is wrong here. I am sorry but after hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish – enough is enough.
Never did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the translation — not even close. Sorry if this offends anyone but this is MY COUNTRY!
IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP — please pass this along.
I am not against immigration — just come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past
If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone — YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!
It is time for America to speak up. If you agree — pass this along, if you don’t agree — Don’t you dare delete it!

Response To Your Dam Office

YOU WORRY ME!

I need to find the beginning of this and will add it later, but there is enough here to get the message.
 

Appropriate For Our Political Arena

  An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the
 boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young
 men, the boy didn’t really know what he wanted to do, and he didn’t seem
 too concerned about it.
 
  One day, while the boy was away at school, his father  decided to try an
 experiment. He went into the boy’s room and placed on his study table
 four objects:  a Bible; a silver dollar; a bottle of whisky and a Playboy magazine.

    ‘I’ll just hide behind the door,’ the old preacher said to himself,
 ‘when he comes home from school this afternoon, I’ll see which object he
 picks up. If it’s the Bible, he’s going to be a preacher like me, and
 what a blessing that would be! If he picks up the dollar, he’s going to
 be a businessman, and that would be okay, too. But if he picks up the
 bottle, he’s going to be a no-good drunkard, and, Lord, what a shame
 that would be. And worst of all, if he picks up that magazine he’s gonna
 be a skirt-chasin’ bum.’

   The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son’s footsteps as he
 entered the house whistling and headed for his room. The boy tossed his
 books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the
 objects on the table. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to
 inspect them. Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his
 arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped it into his pocket. He
 uncorked the bottle and took a big drink while he admired this month’s
 centerfold.

   ‘Lord have mercy,’ the old preacher disgustedly whispered, ‘he’s gonna
run for Congress!’

It’s getting ugly out there: the frauds, bunglers, liars, and losers who are hurting America/
Jack/Cafferty.
Index: ISBN 978-0-470-14479.4…”Labor Day weekend – it isn’t what it used to be in this country,”…
Jack CaffertyPlace of workers in our economy and the up-coming campaigning…America’s time for a reality check.

Cafferty talks of a bumper sticker he saw: “NAFTA + CAFTA = SHAFTA”
Facing some of America’s biggest challenges today:
Labor Force
Millions of our manufacturing jobs being outsourced.
As of 2006, the twelve to twenty million illegal aliens taking jobs
Cafferty reports emails received of widespread anger and anxiety suggesting the biggest
challenge to be outsourcing of manufacturing jobs, or just finding a job, or the work ethic

Are Americans living in an unrealistic, parallel universal world based on false rhetoric of our
previous and present “administration’s barrage of upbeat economic indicators”.

And what about this statement, “the do-nothing GOP Congress raised the national debt
ceiling-for the fourth time on Bush’s watch-to $9 trillion…”

How does what was said in 2006 correlate with what we as Americans are seeing in the new year
of 2008:
1. “…the government is about to run out of money…again.”
2. “Some people…admitted that they could no longer even see themselves as middle class.”
3. “People can’t afford a house or car payments.”
4. “Bankruptcies are up.”
5. “People’s credit is maxed out just from paying the bills.”
6. “Couples working full time are barely making it.”
7. “The number of companies providing health insurance declines yearly.”
8. “Our six-figure elected leaders wouldn’t raise the minimum wage until the 110th Congress
finally got to work on passing the first federal minimum wage hike in a decade in January 2007.”
9. “Both the House and the Senate passed their own versions of a federal minimum wage hike
bill, but they weren’t reconciled and sent to the president for signature until late May 2007.”
10. The first such wage hike since 1997-to be staged over three years-included nearly $5 billion
in tax breaks for small businesses…”
11. ILLEGAL “immigrants are driving down the maximum wage that anyone will pay for an
honest day’s work.”
12. “Decent education…prohibitively expensive…families who don’t…have a trust fund or a star
quarterback on a full-ride scholarship.”

Cafferty refers of an email from Karen that stated, “Being able to support a family with three
children, one of whom is in college, is a greater challenge than I ever imagined it would be. My
standard of living decreases every year, and I worry about what the next years will harbor for
middle-class families.”

Cafferty goes on to say that “The American middle class has…Had its guts ripped out.
Neutralized. Downsized.”…”The middle class in this country is worse off financially than ever
before…”

According to Cafferty’s statistics, “potential downside from all different kinds of debt is
staggering to consider. Home Mortgage debt is now above $8 trillion, thanks to the recent
housing boom and record low interest rates; consumer debt has shot to $11 trillion; and the
United States is in hock to Japan and China to the tune of about$1 trillion.” Those were his
researched statistics in 2006, what are the statistics today?

This list is just to mention a few, and the list goes on…presented to us in 2006. Now what are you
seeing overall in 2008?

I rather like Cafferty thoughts about common sense: “…you have to jam your head way up your
ass not to realize what’s happening. From open borders to Wall Street bonuses, we have
witnessed a historic polarization along the economic scale of income and wealth…illegals…wage
rates…outsourcing…”
And don’t forget to include the “frauds, bunglers, liars, and losers who are hurting America”.

Do Americans really need to worry about that so called “gigantic crater” hitting and demolishing
our earth? Seems to me that common sense would strongly indicate that with our recent
presidents, administration as a whole along with lobbyists and greedy corporations in the White
House, the so called “gigantic crater” has already hit and is well on it’s way to demolishing the
“epicenter of our economy’s income spectrum”.

I believe it is also important to bring to your attention the following 2006 statement made by
Cafferty in his book called The Frauds, Bunglers, Liars, and Losers Who Are Hurting America.
It’s Getting Ugly Out There.

“The beginning of the end for middle-class jobs here was President Clinton’s signing of the North
American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It has not all been on Bush’s watch, by any means,
although Bush did sign the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) and has done
virtually nothing to close our borders. This is corporate America working its bottom line. It’s
capitalism maximizing profits at the expense of its expendable ordinary citizens. It’s ordinary
citizens craving instand gratification instead of saving for a rainy day..” “NAFTA was supposed
to be an economic superhighway for trade-goods and services flowing back and forth without
roadblocks and hindrances…”

Cafferty reports a Situation Room viewer as saying,

“Our country is going to hell in an imported handbasket.”
