'Twas the night before elections


'Twas the night before elections,
And all through the town,
Tempers were flaring,
Emotions all up and down!

I, in my bathrobe,
With a cat in my lap,
Had cut off the TV,
Tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise,
I peered out of my window
And saw Obama and boys.

They had come for my wallet,
They wanted my pay,
To give to the others,
Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money,
And quick as a wink,
Jumped back on his bandwagon,
As I gagged from the stink.

He rallied his henchmen,
Who were pulling his cart,
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

'On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi'
He screamed at the pairs!

They toward his cause
And as he flew out of sight,
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think,
On this one final note -
IF YOU DONT WANT SOCIALISM,
GET OUT AND VOTE!!!

“Wealthy people can afford more (taxes). Here’s what I really think: That when you reach a certain level of comfort, there’s nothing wrong with paying more. ” Spread the wealth? Who said it? John McCain 2000

I am still amazed at the absolute hogwash that is attempting to come out as truth. Obama has said- out of HIS OWN MOUTH his views on abortion. He is AGAINST and I repeat AGAINST late term abortion! He is NOT a socialist, a member of the socialist party, a muslim, a terrorist, or ou to destroy our country. That is a bunch of RNC and internet crap geared to make people afraid. Because they know that fearful people don’t see clearly. If every one who comes up with this internet trash would take the same amount of time you take ingesting that and go check FACTS you would see how much brainwashing your beloved RNC is STILL attempting to shove in your head! Come on! People are capable of more intelligence than to let this work on you again!

The ‘spreading the wealth’ comment has been 1) taken totally out of context. 2) has been twisted beyond all reason to instill fear and mistrust. and finally 3)somehow linked to ‘socialism’ when the average american only knows the word socialism and doesn’t have a real clue what it actually is- only that it is “bad” and “that we don’t want that here” Truth is, we already have a ‘socialistic’ society and you are a part of it every time you drive on a ‘public road’, to go to a ‘public park’( that our government provides for you) or a ‘public pool’. You see our goverment at work every time it takes care of the social issues of maintaining that highway you drove on for your vacation, or taking care of that large international airport your plane took off from. Goverment is a ‘socialist’ entity by its very nature. It takes your taxes and spends those where it is determined to do the most good by the people chosen as representatives. It uses this money to benefit society as a whole, as opposed to individuals.

As for the entire “redistribution of wealth”- well, BOTH tax plans do that. It isn’t the nasty thing that one campaign is hinting at, and not at all like they are insinuating. It is, in actuality an adjustment to our present tax structure- on both sides. McCain's would adjust from the top down. This means that those that make a lot, have a lot, would pay a lot less. They would still get more and be able to have the choice- not the obligation- to use it for personal gain, or to create jobs, as the ‘trickle down’ theory states it should. ( problem is, as we can see presently, human greed uses this so that the rich get-and stay- richer and everyone else either barely hangs on or loses what they have. Say “Reaganomics”

The other idea is to adjust our system from the bottom up. To reinforce our economic foundation, so to speak. Because this directly benefits the people who are on the end of living ‘paycheck to paycheck’ You allow more of that paycheck to go home. Those people will spend it on needed and wanted items. that creates demand. Demand creates jobs. jobs put more money into the ecomony. THAT is how the ‘wealth’ is spread. Joe the plumber buys his groceries from Ed the grocer, who pays Bob the roofer and so on and they can DO this because they have the money in their pockets from the tax cut they received. Boy, that sounds so evil and socialist, doesn’t it?! Kinda sounds like a booming economy, to me. You know like in 1999 or 2000? Say Clinton Era.

But somehow, that scenario has been labeled evil and socialist, because it is ‘spreading the wealth’ according to the rebublicans! They would much rather sling crap and keep up the uglyness in order to win the election. In other words, they will go to any length and and depth to just win and keep power. No matter what the cost or how much it destroys truth. Sad. Pitiful. Dishonest.

Dennis-

Thank you for coming out so strongly against socialism. In the future I'll be sure not to give another nickel to any one of your charities, because as you know: redistributing my wealth to charities is blatant and despicable socialism.

That is fine with me, I guess I should have made everyone pay 995 bucks like Woodies and kept it all.
Instead of paying for everything myself and working 6 weeks to put on a workshop.....and in return only asked that you give whatever value you believed it was worth directly to a charity....

Stupid me.......no more free lunches then....tnanks for pointing out my faults....

The republicans nationalize the banks after eight years of incompetence. Then they call Obama a socialist. Go figure.

Why don't we all cool down to normal temperature. In business school you get two things taught (beside a lot of others, of course):

When you're in a meeting with a customer, neither talk about religion nor politics, or you will never make the deal.

Cheer up Sport,
I greatly appreciate your generosity and your attempts to expose your internet buddies to the value and blessing involved in giving continually.
Some of us get it, some remain puzzeled (and angry, you can em)
And life goes on.
Regarding the election...I'm taking the high road and saying that GOD is at work here..and I'll watch (and of course vote McCain and Palin).
All this reminds me of a post immediately after the first Gatlinburg workshop where someone mentioned "cheap bastards" (it wasn't me).
Rest well.
I enjoy each blog post immensely. Keep up the Good Work.

There is a difference here that is rather important, when someone other that myself takes my money to "redistribute" that money is very different than me choosing to "redistribute" my own money as I see fit. Dennis, you are a shining example of the free market system, you have been successful and have chosen to give your time and knowledge away, and I for one appreciate it tremendously!
Thanks!

Giving to charites is a CHOICE you knuckleheads. Socialism REMOVES CHOICE from the agenda.

I CHOOSE to be charitable. I give whatever I can. But I have a CHOICE.

Obama wants to take my right to choose away from me. That is socialism.

I do like to read and listen to all the sides out there. Was wondering why if any of my children under 18 can not be named in news media by name, but VP elect daughter can be mentioned about her mother hood. And what would happen if McCain was lawyer only representing say someone like Mr. Tom Metzger instead of Acorn. Or for that matter he just hung around some of those meetings, oh I mean church gatherings for 20 years. But I am simple person, probably got some of this wrong. It realy does not matter, my view is way out of the box. Not like the president realy runs things. And sure looks like the old time players put a person in place to win the election and then one of their old boys(Biden) in there just to be there in case anything happens. I always thought his slogan should have been. Oh Sh*t I made it. Oh and no spell check, hope I am still worthy of opinion.

Socialist Barack Hussein Obama video

Obamba?? I don't think so

Subject: To Barack Hussein Obama

To Barack Hussein Obama,

The New York Times carried a story on Saturday, October 4, 2008, that proved you had a significantly closer relationship with Bill Ayers
than what you previously admitted. While the issue of your
relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about it.

The Chicago Sun reported on May 8, 2008, that FBI records showed that you had a significantly closer relationship with Tony Rezko than what
you previously admitted. In the interview, you said that you only
saw Mr. Rezko a couple of times a year. The FBI files showed that
you saw him weekly. While the issue of your relationship is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about it.

Your speech in Philadelphia on March 18, 2008, about "race"
contradicted your statement to Anderson Cooper on March 14 when you said that you never heard Reverend Wright make his negative
statements about white America . While your attendance at Trinity
Church for 20 years is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America on March 14.

In your 1st debate with John McCain, you said that you never said that you would meet with the leaders of Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, and North Korea without "preparations" at lower levels ... Joe Biden repeated your words in his debate with Sarah Palin ... while the video tape from your debate last February clearly shows that you answered "I would" to the question of meeting with those leaders within 12 months without "any" preconditions. While your judgement about meeting with enemies of the USA without pre-conditions is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America in the debate with McCain.

On July 14, 2008, you said that you always knew that the surge would work while the video tapes of you from more than a year ago show that
you stated that the surge would not work. While your judgement
about military strategy as a potential commander-in-chief is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America on July 14.

You now claim that your reason for voting against funding for the troops was because the bill did not include a time line for withdrawal, while the video tapes of you from more than a year ago show that you voted against additional funding because you wanted our troops to be removed immediately ... not in 16 months after the 2008 election as you now claim. While your judgement about removing our troops unilaterally in 2007 is of concern, the greater concern is that you lied to America about your previous position.

You claim to have a record of working with Republicans while the record shows that the only bill that you sponsored with a Republican was with Chuck Lugar .. and it failed. The record shows that you vote 97% in concert with the Democrat party and that you have the most liberal voting record in the Senate. You joined Republicans only 13% of the time in your votes and those 13% were only after agreement from the Democrat party. While it is of concern that you fail to include conservatives in your actions and that you are such a liberal, the greater concern is that you distorted the truth.

In the primary debates of last February, 2008, you claimed to have talked with a "Captain" of a platoon in Afghanistan "the other day"
when in fact you had a discussion in 2003 with a Lieutenant who had just been deployed to Afghanistan . You lied in that debate.

In your debates last spring, you claimed to have been a "professor of Constitutional law" when in fact you have never been a professor of Constitutional law. In this last debate, you were careful to say that you "taught a law class" and never mentioned being a "professor of Constitutional law." You lied last spring.

You and Joe Biden both claimed that John McCain voted against additional funding for our troops when the actual records show the opposite. You distorted the truth.

You and Joe Biden claim that John McCain voted against funding for alternate energy sources 20 times when the record shows that John McCain specifically voted against funding for bio fuels, especially corn ... and he was right ... corn is too expensive at producing ethanol, and using corn to make ethanol increased the price of corn
from $2 a bushel to $6 a bushel for food. You distorted the truth.

You and Joe Biden claim that John McCain voted like both of you for a tax increase on those making as little as $42,000 per year while the voting record clearly shows that John McCain did not vote as you and
Joe Biden. You lied to America .

You and Joe Biden claim that John McCain voted with George W. Bush 90% of the time when you know that Democrats also vote 90% of the time with the President (including Joe Biden) because the vast majority of the votes are procedural. You are one of the few who has not voted 90% of the time with the president because you have been
missing from the Senate since the day you got elected. While your
absence from your job in the Senate is of concern, the greater concern is that you spin the facts.

You did not take an active role in the rescue plan. You claimed that the Senate did not need you while the real reason that you abstained was because of your close relationships with the executives of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Countrywide, and Acorn ... who all helped cause the financial problems of today ... and they all made major contributions
to your campaign. While your relationship with these executives and
your protection of them for your brief 3 years in the Senate (along with Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, and Chris Dodd) is of concern, the greater concern is that you are being deceitful.

You forgot to mention that you personally represented Tony Rezko and Acorn. Tony Rezko, an Arab and close friend to you, was convicted of fraud in Chicago real estate transactions that bilked millions of tax dollars from the Illinois government for renovation projects that you sponsored as a state senator ... and Acorn has been convicted of voter fraud, real estate sub prime loan intimidation, and illegal campaign contributions. Tony Rezko has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to your political campaigns. You personally used your political positions to steer money to both Tony Rezko and Acorn and you used Acorn to register thousands of phony voters for Democrats and you. While your relationships with Rezko and Acorn are of concern, the greater concern is that you omitted important facts about your relationships with them to America .

During your campaign, you said: "typical white person." "They cling to their guns and religion." "They will say that I am black." You played the race card. You tried to label any criticism about you as racist. You divide America .

You claim that you will reduce taxes for 95% of America , but you forgot to tell America that those reductions are after you remove the
Bush tax reductions. You have requested close to $1 billion in
earmarks and several million for Acorn. Your social programs will
cost America $1 trillion per year and you claim that a reduction in
military spending ($100 billion for Iraq ) can pay for it. While
your economic plan of adding 30% to the size of our federal government is of concern, the greater concern is that you are deceiving America

The drain to America ' s economy by foreign supplied oil is $700 billion per year (5% of GDP) while the war in Iraq is $100 billion (less than 1% of GDP). You voted against any increases to oil exploration for the last 3 years and any expansion of nuclear facilities. Yet today, you say that you have always been for more oil and more nuclear. You are lying to America .

Mr. Obama, you claimed that you "changed" your mind about public financing for your campaign because of the money spent by Republican
PACs in 2004. The truth is that the Democrat PACs in 2004, 2006,
and 2008 spent twice as much as the Republican PACs (especially
George Soros and MoveOn.org). You are lying to America

Mr. Obama, you have done nothing to stop the actions of the teachers union and college professors in the USA . They eliminated religion from our history. They teach pro gay agendas and discuss sex with students as young as first grade. They bring their personal politics into the classrooms. They disparage conservatives. They brainwash our children. They are in it for themselves ..... not America
. Are you reluctant to condemn their actions because
teachers/professors and the NEA contribute 25% of all money donated to Democrats and none to Republicans? You are deceiving America

Oh, Mr. Obama, Teddy Roosevelt said about a hundred years ago that we Americans should first look at the character of our leaders before anything else.

Your character looks horrible. While you make good speeches, motivating speeches, your character does not match your rhetoric. You talk the talk, but do not walk the walk.

1. You lied to America . You lied many times. You distorted facts. You parsed your answers like a lawyer.

2. You distorted the record of John McCain in your words and in your advertisements.

3. You had associations with some very bad people for your personal political gains and then lied about those associations.

4. You divide America about race and about class.

Now let me compare your record of lies, distortions, race baiting,
and associations to John McCain: War hero. Annapolis graduate with
"Country first." Operational leadership experience like all 43
previously elected presidents of the USA as a Navy officer for 22 years. 26 years in the Senate. Straight talk. Maverick. 54% of the time participated on bills with Democrats. Never asked for an earmark. The only blemish on his record is his part in the Keating 5 debacle about 25 years ago.

Mr. Obama, at Harvard Law School, you learned that the end does not justify the means. You learned that perjury, false witness, dishonesty, distortion of truth are never tolerated. Yet, your dishonesty is overwhelming. Your dishonesty is tremendously greater than the dishonesty that caused the impeachment and disbarment of Bill Clinton. Your dishonesty is tremendously greater than the dishonesty of Scooter Libby. You should be ashamed.

Mr. Obama, it is time for us Americans to put aside our differences on political issues and vote against you because of your dishonest
character. It is time for all of us Americans to put aside our
political issues and vote for America first. It is time for America to vote for honesty.

Any people who vote for you after understanding that you are dishonest should be ashamed of themselves for making their personal political issues more important than character. Would these same people vote for the anti-Christ if the anti-Christ promised them
riches? Would they make a golden calf while Moses was up the
mountain? Would they hire someone for a job if that someone lied in
an interview? Of course not. So why do some of these people justify their votes for you even though they know you are dishonest? Why do
they excuse your dishonesty? Because some of these people are
frightened about the future, the economy, and their financial security .... and you are preying on their fears with empty promises ... and because some (especially our young people) are consumed by your wonderful style and promises for "change" like the Germans wh o voted for Adolf Hitler in 1932. The greed/envy by Germans in 1932 kept them from recognizing Hitler for who he
was. They loved his style. Greed and envy are keeping many
Americans from recognizing you ... your style has camouflaged your
dishonesty .... but many of us see you for who you really are ...
and we will not stop exposing who you are every day, forever if it is necessary.

Mr. Obama, you are dishonest. Anyone who votes for you is enabling dishonesty.

Mr. Obama , America cannot trust that you will put America first in your decisions about the future.

Mr. Obama, you are not the "change" that America deserves. We cannot trust you.

Mr. Obama, You are not ready and not fit to be commander-in-chief.

Mr. Obama, John McCain does not have as much money as your campaign to refute all of your false statements. And for whatever reasons, the mainstream media will not give adequate coverage or research about your lies, distortions, word parsing, bad associations, race baiting, lack of operational leadership experience, and generally dishonest character. The media is diverting our attention from your relationships and ignoring the fact that you lied about those
relationships. The fact that you lied is much more important than
the relationships themselves .... just like with Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon ... Monica Lewinski and Watergate were not nearly as bad as the fact that those men lied about the events ... false witness .. perjury ... your relationships and bad judgements are bad on their own .... but your lies are even worse.

Therefore, by copy of this memo, all who read this memo are asked to send it to everyone else in America before it is too late. We need to do the job that the media will not do. We need to expose your dishonesty so that every person in America understands who you really are before election day.

Mr. Obama, in a democracy, we get what we deserve. And God help America if we deserve you.

Obama may have said he is against late term abortion but he has never voted against late term abortion. He even voted against a bill that would require medical attention to be given to a newborn baby that survived an abortion attempt. Obama by be talking the talk but he doesn't walk the walk. His voting record proves it.
