Good Grief, Charlie Brown!!! Where should we start??? Can you say ACORN and VOTER FRAUD! Or how about... AIG, its trip to the spa, the second bailout in a month or the second PLANNED trip to a resort???!!!

I am so appalled and do not even know where to begin, but I think we'll start with ACORN. For those who have not heard, ACORN is a leftist group that has been very active in recruiting people to register to vote and then follow up with rides to the polls. They specialize in seeking out the homeless, the poor, etc... They claim to be non-partisan, but their are abundant reports that they are persistant in their push for the Democratic candidates. In 20 states there have been accusations of voter fraud specifically naming ACORN. About 48 hours ago, authorities in Las Vegas, Nevada raided the local ACORN office. As is turns out... there were voter registrations forms for the entire starting line up for the Dallas Cowboys in Las Vegas. Now, I am sure many of those young men have spent more time than they should in Vegas, but I am equally certain that those Cowboys do not LIVE in Vegas; however, ACORN insists they have done nothing wrong and issued a statement. Below is only an exerpt from their website.

"As part of our nonpartisan voter registration program, ACORN staff reviews every single application submitted by our canvassers. Special, dedicated staff makes up to three phone calls attempting to reach the voter listed on EVERY SINGLE CARD before they are turned in to verify the information. Our callers verify the information on the cards before turning them in to election officials to make sure that as many new voters as possible get on the rolls and to make sure that all of our voter registration workers are doing the high quality work they are trained to do."
In the name of fair and balanced, you can read the entire text at the ACORN website. It should also be noted that ACORN officials have been cooperating with authorities.[tt_news]=22368&tx_ttnews[backPid]=12387&cHash=b73691350d

Althought ACORN is cooperating with investigators, this is not an isolated incident and ACORN is a target of other investigations across the country. How can they defend themselves and claim that they are doing "great things" all the while ignoring the serious threat to our democracy they have created. They have accepted voter registrations that are OBVIOUSLY fraudulent and do not seem at all bothered by it.

If this wasn't enough to wake up to, there are new reports about AIG and another bailout and plans for another trip to some exclusive resort by executives. WHAT THE HECK!? Are they serious!? How dare they take taxpayer money and go on a vacation while the people footing the bill are working his/her fanny off just trying to keep gas in the tank and food on the table, then have the audacity to ask for more!? Those losers should have to pay that money back IMMEDIATELY and AIG investigated for fraudulently claiming an emergency to the Feds and begging for the bailout, then using those funds to pamper themselves. This is no longer just irresponsible - THIS IS CRIMINAL. The executives that asked for these TWO BAILOUTS and PLANNED VACTIONS WITH THE BAILOUT MONEY should be prosecuted for misappropriation of funds and for fraud. The first trip cost taxpayers $440,000 ($23,380 for spa treatments alone) leaving Congress with egg on their face as his/her constituents demand answers. Wide spread reports on this state that lawmakers were furious - they should be. I sure as hell am!!

Well, well, well... Wall Street took a nose dive today. Hmmm... Citi Bank and Wells Fargo in a financial tug of war for Wachovia... The European markets are also falling... The BAILOUT (aka the rescue) does not seem to be having the desired effect.

Could it be that the public is not buying the chocolate dipped turd? Could it be that the American public is losing faith in the markets? Or could it be that the markets were falsly inflated with over-reaching profit projections of big business and the pitiful mismanagement of others. I have thought for years that the market would have to correct its self. When it went over 10,000, every one celebrated and thought it was so fabulous... Now if it goes back to 9,999, speculators are saying what a disaster it would be. I don't recall things being so bad at 9, 900, do you??

Personally, I think that it would be a wake up call for the CEOs and CFOs of all these oversized companies that now hold the testicles of our legislature.

ATTENTION TO ALL CEOs AND CFOs: Stop inflating estimated quarterly profits, stop making business decisions that a seventh grader could acurately tell you won't work, stop being so damn greedy that you run the entire economy of our country into the ground with your thievery.

Maybe if they suffer a little bit they will think twice before doing the things that got us here.

$700 BILLION - Isn't it funny...

Am I the only one thinking how strange it is that the BAILOUT (I refuse to call it anything else!) has disappeared from the headlines so incredibly fast?? The home pages of Fox and CNN are devoid of any mention of the BAILOUT in the headlines. However, CNN had a link to an "ireport" page that I found interesting. It discusses the enormity of 700 BILLION DOLLARS. Ya'll already know what I think about that and the greed and stupidity that got us where we are today.

Now the only thing they want to talk about are the campaign ads. So, let's talk about them... Is anyone surprised about the gloves coming off in October?? I am not. What surprises me is that the media and some of the politicians seem to be...

Why is Obama so shocked and upset about the ads regarding his highly questionable associates?? WELCOME TO NATIONAL POLITICS - you are not in Illinois anymore, Senator. Guess what - your middle name will be used too - just like everybody else. It is not McCain's fault or the fault of the media that your Momma named you Hussein. Not to mention that you are the one that chose use your given name instead of the name you used in school, Barry.

Same to the overreaching feminists that are angry about the hounds running around Alaska looking for dirt on Sarah Palin... Hey, I am on record as a Palin supporter, but I live in the real world too-- THIS IS POLITICS. If anybody really expected something else to happen, they were dreaming.

I will go out on a limb and make a prediction - this is October... There will be what has been known as the "October Surprise". I do not know what they will be, but it will surprise me if there is not one or two. This is what happens every election cycle. The opposing parties hang on to some juicy titbit about the other side and will wait until the last week of October to release the info to the media in hopes of a last dig to effect the vote November 4. It has been an effective tactic and a regular part of American Politics - so be ready.

If you are unhappy with how your Representative or Senators voted - VOTE THEM OUT! If you live in a community where you are offered no choice - the incumbant runs unopposed until he/she dies or retires - go file the paperwork to RUN AGAINST THEM!!

THIS HAS GOT TO STOP! The politicians clearly went against what their constituents wanted. Very few Americans wanted this bailout and very few politicians actually wanted to vote for it. They were pressured into passing a bill that almost NO ONE wanted. Bloggers are commenting on how members our legislature were "given permission to vote against the bill". Permission from who??!! These jackasses are supposed to be representing his or her district -NOT VOTING HOW THEY ARE TOLD BY SOME PARTY LEADER!

Fox News reported, "I think most Americans understand that we're facing a serious economic crisis" House Minority Leader John Boehner (R) said. "And I think over the past few days, it's been clear the House Republicans have stood on principle. We made this bill better. It's not perfect but it's clearly better than it was a week ago." THIS GUY NEEDS TO BE GONE! How is adding an extra $100 BILLION DOLLARS making this outrageous theft of taxpayer dollars making it better???!!!

These jerks think that by calling it a RESCUE and not calling it a bailout anymore, will make it more palatable to the American People. I, however, think that any educated person who has been paying attention to this fiasco will see right through the BS.

A BAILOUT IS STILL A BAILOUT - WHATEVER YOU CALL IT. They think if they dip this turd in chocolate that will will foolishly eat it up. Well, I AM NOT BUYING THIS CRAP!!




I wish that some third party would rise up and gain some strength. Instead we have so many Independants and "Third Parties" that they share a pretty good percentage. For example take Texas; Rick Perry is a sorry excuse for a Govorner, if he had not had three viable challengers the last election, he would not be in Austin now. He had only 30 something percent of the vote. If that could be narrowed down to one solid candidate, I would advocate voting for the the person NOT HELD HOSTAGE BY ONE OF THE CORRUPT ALL-POWERFUL TWO PARTIES CURRENTLY RUNNING THE SHOW.

Unfortunately, we are forced to vote for one of the two parties or have our vote fall on deaf ears. If McCain had chosen a different running mate - he would not have my vote. I think this is the very kind of thing Palin will go after and I will be voting for McCain mainly because of her.

I've said it before and I'll say it again -- handing over $700 BILLION dollars will not fix this problem unless they go in there and BREAK UP ALL THESE OVERSIZED COMPANIES, BANKS AND MORTAGE AND LOAN OPERATIONS.

IF A COMAPANY IS SO BIG THAT THE ECONOMY OF THE WHOLE COUNTRY DEPENDS ON ITS SUCCESS, IT IS TOO BIG!!! We are being held hostage by a big business that got too big for its own britches and got too greedy!!

As Glenn Beck would say... AAWWW, YEAHHH!! She nailed the debate. There was a short time she seemed a bit nervous, but she snapped back and really shined. I cannot help but think that Joe Biden was even a bit impressed and maybe even surprised at how well she handled herself. She got in a few zingers, but still was very pleasant while she did it!! I think that this is a huge victory for women and all conservatives!! I loved what she said about being happy that McCain never asked her to "check her opinions at the door". I loved the little wink she added when discussing ANWAR. I love that she very simply stated that the Obama/Biden Iraq policy was waiving a white flag of surrender. She has a way of getting her point across without seeming "bitchy" , "scary" or any of the other negative epithets used to describe Hilary over the years. She has a very likable personality; she has a very pleasant way about her; she thinks like a regular American, because she is one. She is not a professional politician - She is a woman who became fed up with the "Good ol' Boy System" and instead of complaining about it she took action.

Considering that I personally think he is wrong on nearly EVERY issue, I thought Joe Biden did fairly well himself, better than I thought he would. Intellectual honesty - I give credit when it is due.

ANYWAY!! I just had to go on about how well SARAH PALIN handled this debate and I think the world will be impressed, but more important...
I think this country will be very blessed to have her watching our backs!!
