I was listening to a speech tonight; the text is below:

Are you tired of the Democratic party?
Are you tired of the Republican party?
Are you tired of a Congress that does nothing?
Are you tired of having twice as many lobbyists as they’ve ever had before?

Then I…I have an idea.
Don’t vote for the congressman or senators.
You don’t have to vote.
Know how we’re gonna pick ‘em?
The same way we pick a jury.
And you’ll get a more interesting cross section than the folks you got right now.
I guarantee it.

Do you want a better healthcare system?
You have an HMO that says, “We’ll give you Viagra, but we won’t pay for glasses.” So you can have a hard-on, but you can’t see where to put it. We’re gonna change it, aren’t we?

And we’re not just talking liberal or conservative-big-time change.

You know recently, a lot of the past administrations said it’s unpatriotic to question the government. If it was unpatriotic to question the government, we’d still be English! The Boston Tea Party…the Boston Tea Party wasn’t people going, “Oh hello.” It was a lot of guys in Boston going, “Here’s your tea, right here”.

I’m tired of the Democratic party
I’m tired of the Republican party

Here’s what we’re talking about Freedom of Speech and it also comes down to the idea of freedom of religion, the idea of practicing any religion you want, anytime, anywhere. You could be anything. You could be Bewish – Jewish and Buddhist. You sit and you wait for things to go on sale. That’s okay. But that’s what we’re talking about. But occasionally religion crosses over-you have people saying intelligent design, “You must teach intelligent design”. Look at the human body. Is that intelligent? I find it more interesting you have a waste processing plant next to a recreation area.

They always attack environmentalists saying, “You’re a tree hugger”. I go, “No, I’ve done more than hug a tree.” If you find the right naughty pine, you’re gonna have a good night. Oh yeah. “Who’s your woodsman, who’s your woodsman?” I’m not just a tree hugger, I’m an air breather. I’m sorry. It’s bad enough with the squirrels going…”Please help me. I can’t breathe today.” If you put enough chemicals in the water, you’ll be fishing, going, “You know Bob, I love catching them two-headed bass. They’re good eatin’ once you get past the tumors. There’s some good eatin’ out there.”

I’m tired of the Democratic party
Now I’m tired of the Republican party

Now that’s why we’re here–‘cause you want change! Yeah! You wanna shake it up! You have to be eyes wide open, ready to move on! Arm in arm, hand in hand, everybody together, moving forward, because the future is now!

This speech is eerily familiar to what we’re hearing on the campaign trail, and indeed this speech was part of a recent campaign–from 2006, in fact. It was given by one Tom Dobbs.

Tom Dobbs, though, doesn’t exist except as a character in a Barry Levinson film titled “Man of the Year”, starring Robin Williams as the aforementioned Tom Dobbs.

We already know BHO plagiarizes speeches from friends and acquaintenances. We know he doesn’t have an original thought in his head. We know he’s a relatively eloquent speaker–unless he has no teleprompter. And his eloquence is nothing but a cover for fluff, smoke and mirrors and a complete lack of a platform, full of platitudes but short on solutions.

BHO is the perfect empty suited emperor, mimicking a movie character who, while charismatic and eloquent, was also full of smoke and mirrors while short on actual solutions. Both BHO and Dobbs can whip a crowd into a frenzy like rock stars, yet once the lights are turned off, the crowds have gone home and there’s nothing left but the trash on the floor, what have either done to elicit thought? Engage the brain? Have you ruminating about what was said while brushing your teeth?

Sadly, when one tries to think about what was said during a BHO speech (or a Dobbs speech), one must rack their brain to remember anything other than a bunch of noise.

There are no solutions in the speeches. There is no substance. A lot of hype. A lot of feel good rhetoric. Lots of lights, smoke, mirrors, balloons, confetti…but not much else.

At the end of the movie, though, Dobbs is one thing BHO most decidedly ISN’T–honest. After realizing he didn’t win the election after all, due to a computer glitch, he rescinds his office (despite advice to the contrary, given by his trusted advisors–who repeatedly tell him no one will know he’s not the REAL president unless he blows it and reveals the truth). BHO and Dobbs do seem to have the same advisors.

Go read the Dobbs campaign trail speech again. See how much of BHO’s plagiarism you can find. And remember–Dobbs, while fictional, had shady advisors–yet he overcame their bad advice and redeemed himself. BHO will never do so. He revels in being, at the least, a plagiarist–and at the most, a typical, crooked politician.

So much for change and hope.

Myth Fact

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.

Sahih MuslimBook 001, Number 0031:

It is reported on the authority of Abu Huraira that he heard the Messenger of Allah say: I have been commanded to fight against people, till they testify to the fact that there is no god but Allah, and believe in me (that) I am the messenger (from the Lord) and in all that I have brought. And when they do it, their blood and riches are guaranteed protection on my behalf except where it is justified by law, and their affairs rest with Allah.

Tafsir

Political Science 101 anyone

Much is being written these days about Obama. No, I am not referring to the sycophants in the msm who have swallowed his empty rhetoric hook, line and sinker. I mean the stuff written by Americans who have a brain, and who use it to question, think for themselves. I found an interesting – FACT filled piece – which should be read far and wide before America goes like lemmings over the cliff.

Obama For Sale

Obama announced he would become the first major party candidate to forgo public financing ….we all know this. It means he will garner funding from “private” donors.

Who are the “private donors?”

Obama raised $22 million in May for his presidential campaign, his weakest fundraising month this year, and ended the month with $43 million cash on hand….interesting.

Hillary Clinton’s loyal donors have already contributed the maximum to her campaign, so she needs some new sources of money to settle her debts. That’s where Obama comes in _ his donors help her out, her donors help him. Suspicious.

People have forgotten that Obama has Oprah in his back pocket for a funding source.

Who else does Obama have?

Who are the “private donors?”

Are the “books” cooked?

Can the public see where the money train ends in the private sectors? We can see the PUBLIC records–the link is below. What about the private records?

Hypothetically, is it possible that since Obama is so well loved in places like Hamas, Iran, Cuba, ORGANIZATION OF THE PEOPLE’S HOLY WARRIORS OF IRAN, NATIONAL COUNCIL OF RESISTANCE (NCR), PEOPLE’S MUJAHEDDIN ORGANIZATION, Islamic radicals, Yousef alKhattab…..that a large portion of his “private funding” have end-roads with these groups?

I say again, OBAMA FOR SALE.

OBAMA FOR SALE—-To the best donors, with the deepest pockets and best script writers….

You think that this kind of information might have to do with WHY Senator Obama flip flopped from his original position of supporting public funding for campaigns, to now private funding? I guess I, too, would go for private funding if I had such money backers. And yes, there are names in this piece. The rest can be found at Poison Pen here. Go, read, and be educated.

An Open Letter To Jack “Cold-Blooded” Murtha

By Online Tuesday, July 1, 2008

From: warofwits.org
Congressman Murtha,

Were I you sir, I would hang my head in shame and pray to my Creator, begging His forgiveness for the pain that I’ve caused innocent people. And then I would perform some serious personal introspection to see what I could possibly do to begin the process of restitution for my crimes.

But you won’t because you have no shame.

As a member of the House of Representatives, you took a solemn oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. Despite what you may believe personally, taking that oath also means upholding the constitutional rights of the ever-expanding list of US Marines and other service-members who are unfortunate enough to have their tactical battlefield decisions dissected and judged by people in the comfort of air-conditioned facilities thousands of miles away.

You appeared on national television, looked the American people in the eye and told us that you had it on good authority that four Marines committed murder and four others covered it up.

It is you who murdered the truth in cold blood. You lied and you’re covering it up….

You’ve brought incalculable anguish upon the parents, spouses, siblings and children of eight innocent men based on nothing more than enemy propaganda planted by a Sunni agent of al Qaeda. And while you were busy trying to kill the rest of our military in Iraq; starving them of food and ammunition by tying up war funding with a morass of beaurocracy; people like me were busy listening to the anguished father of a Marine as he poured his heart out over the injustice perpetrated against his son. People like me were busy listening to the pleas of patriots such as Dave Wuterich, Andrew Grayson and Darryl Sharrratt, as they simply asked America not to prejudge these cases. But I found myself in a very tiny minority and it was due –in large part– to your public pronunciation of murder in cold blood, the stain of which your hands shall never be cleansed of….

That piece is written by Jayme Evans, U.S.N(Ret.), and he has much more to say about Murtha.
He adds an eloquent voice of condemnation to the chorus calling Murtha on his actions. You really should read the rest on Canada Free Press here.

In my opinion, it is the DUTY of every American voter to inform themselves on the issues, and their political hacks (mmmm, I mean ‘representatives’ of course.lol). The future of America is far too important to have not only an abysmal voter turnout at the polls, but to have that electorate make uninformed choices. Class is ended – for now!

In a Nutshell

For all the loons who think Weasel Clark is just soooooooo cool in his disrespect of a former POW, who think it’s the correct thing to do to belittle someone for having been a POW, here’s a little something to put it in perspective:

While Clark was busy kissing politicians asses, McCain was locked up and tortured. Clark isn’t fit to wipe the dust from McCain’s shoes. If you don’t like it, too damn bad.

I personally will not tolerate the belittling of someone, the purposeful smearing of someone by the Obama camp, someone who gave a lot more to this country and for this country, someone who KNEW what he was in for and the fact he may not survive it, someone who CHOSE to stay in that horrendous situation rather than sell out his fellow prisoners than either Clark or Obama ever thought about in their smug, self righteous, elitist, self centered lives.
