Secret, Foreign Money Floods Into Obama Campaign

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the Obama campaign has not identified donors for nearly half the amount he has raised, unlike the McCain campaign, which has made its complete donor database available online. And until recently, the Obama site did not ask for proof of citizenship, leading to questionable fundraising by foreigners. ~ gmarie624 ~

The Parker Problem

I don't know if you happened to see the Kathleen Parker column, "The Palin Problem". Is it just me, or does Parker seem to be just a little on the elitist side? Now, with that being said, I rest my case. Parker IS one of the problems for the McCain/Palin campaign. Well, we'll see, won't we, in that debate on October 2, 2008, live, no editing. So, how do I REALLY feel? I was pretty upset after reading that column. I was in the process of working on something else when I found it. Anyway, I ended up writing this one. And to make my point, I include a couple videos that I found on youtube.com that were made to cheapen Sarah - nothing worse than something you'd see on SNL - and yet, these will definitely tickle your funnybone. It will make reading my blog today worth your while. You'll smile! (And yet, these don't even compare to the actual Joe Biden gaffes and laughs!!) :D read more | digg story

A Day of Rejoicing! - by T. L. Farlow

Rejoice in this small victory! But, remember that there will be repeated attempts to grab the remaining money that is now in the hands of individuals.

“Stupid Is As Stupid Does” Wall Street Bailout - by T. L. Farlow

Remembering the 1929 Stock Market Crash

Going through the videos in this blog will probably not help you sleep any time soon. I don't think you could be thinking of anything else but that history seems to be repeating itself. It's all about greed. Or, is is something even deeper than that? All I know is that I'm not looking for the government or savvy investors to save the day for me. No, I know exactly who I'm looking to right now. His name is Jesus, and I know He is my Lord and Savior. No man on earth will do what the Lord has done, and will do, for us. Oh, sorry, did I say "No man on earth"? .... Sorry about that. I must include women, too, to be PC.

With all the current financial chaos, global pandemonium and spiraling economy, or the dangers from terrorism, you'll be glad to know that the U.S. government is hard at work protecting us from a threat so vile and dangerous that it dwarfs all those other petty international and domestic concerns we face as a nation: The incandescent light bulb. read more | digg story

Family with Down Syndrome Child Meets McCain and Sarah Palin

Touching Story about a meeting with a Down Syndrame child on the campaign trail. :) ~ joelbow ~ This is fantastic, as I heard the original broadcast when this story happened on September 9, 2008. A caller, Kurt from Pittsburg, PA, called into Rush's show, to talk about what had happened when he took his family to see McCain and Palin. I was blown away by it. I heard Rush telling the listeners to the show to check his website for this transcript and the pictures that Kurt sent in, and then I totally forgot about it. Fortunately, and here it is almost two weeks later, a good friend of mine emailed the transcript of that show to me, with Kurt's pictures included. I checked for the story on RushLimbaugh.com, and sure enough, there it was. I then located the story on digg.com so that I could post it here. joelbow should be happy, as when I found this story at digg.com, I shared it with my friends, and the number of diggs more than doubled within the day! With the constant 24/7 news cycle, this doesn't happen too often when an article was submitted 10 days ago, but truly, this is a timeless story. You must read the transcript of this call (see link below). It also includes the pictures taken of this event. This does have a way of touching your heart. I remember when I heard it live, on the show, I was so blown away. I'm not sure reading a transcript will touch your heart like it was when I heard it in that broadcast, but hopefully it will give you the gist of how fantastic this was for Kurt and his family, as well as for the Palin and McCain families.

Is The Illuminati Provoking Economic Collapse?

"The Illuminati goal is to torture the human race until we cry out to them for world government, anything to stop the pain." This article was submitted by wariscrime at digg.com, and shouted to me by a friend, GobalistShill. And why do I add this to this blog? Well, it is to make people think. There is an enormous amount of information on the internet. These kinds of stories are easily found. But, don't they sometimes make you wonder what is really going on? You see, I read this one book by Dr. Stanley Monteith, called, "Brotherhood of Darkness" a year or two ago. I've kept a mental note of what I read in that outstanding book, but I try to keep it filed in the back of my mind. Maybe it is because I would be spending my life in a state of frantic anxiety. read more | digg story

But mass murder isn’t socialism’s only evil. WARNING: This column is definitely going to take a minimum of college level reading skills. That's actually a good thing.

Sacrifice for Freedom - by T. L. Farlow

In a column by T. L. Farlow, he writes:

These surely are tempestuous times with one after another disastrous natural storms reeking havoc each time they pass. Not only do we have a particular region destroyed by these raging storms, but the entire nation is further burdened financially by an equally disastrous government policy dictating that each citizen pay up their fair share to restore these storm victims and make them whole again. This includes even me, though a thousand plus miles removed, I too suffer at the hands of our socialist government system of punishing all when an unfortunate few incur a disaster. At some time, perhaps in the near future, there will arrive another storm, or series of storms, which will overwhelm the financial capabilities of our illegal banking system and the citizens' compulsory responsibility to pay up and make whole all those affected. As these creations batter not only our coastlines, but our wallets as well, we stand unprotected, naked and unable to stop the advances of both these whirlwinds and this socialist government which come and strip the landscape of its value and the citizenry of their possessions, destroying liberty, commerce and decency all at the same time.

Johnny's Got a New Girl

Pat Buchanan starts out by saying:
The risk John McCain took last Friday is comparable to the 72-year-old ex-fighter pilot knocking back two shots and flying his F-16 under the Golden Gate Bridge. McCain's choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his co-pilot was the biggest gamble in presidential history. As of now, it is paying off, big-time.
I had to wonder what he was going to say through the rest of the column after reading that first paragraph. However, it wasn't all that bad. No, actually pretty good, considering Pat's "maverick tendencies" (now we know why he seems to like McCain). Here is the part I believe was very supportive of McCain's choice:
By passing over his friends Joe Lieberman and Tom Ridge, and picking Palin, McCain has given himself a fighting chance of winning the White House that, before Friday morning, seemed to be slipping away. Indeed, the bristling reaction on the left testifies to Democratic fears that the choice of Palin could indeed be a game-changer in 2008.
So, indeed, it seems that McCain's choice has attracted another Conservative, Pat Buchanan. I see that as a good thing. Read the entire story at HumanEvents.com | digg story

Sarah Palin's feminist folly - By Olivia St. John

Olivia laments on women trying to balance family life with a career.
More and more women who work outside the home say they are stressed and overworked. They regret ever having taken the mantle of both motherhood and working outside the home. They have discovered that under the weight of too much responsibility, something has to give – and any honest woman will tell you that it is the children who get the short shrift. After all, the pressure to make a project deadline in a salaried job is greater than the pressure to make time for one's own children.
I have some very big problems with what Olivia wrote! While I am all for having moms and dads more available for their children, in many cases, it will never be a reality. But the one thing is for sure, Olivia doesn't account for the family as a whole. Isn't it BOTH parent's responsibility to raise the kids? Was she just assuming that there is no such thing as a two-parent (a man and a woman) family any more? As a dad, I actually took a few years off from working away from home. I worked from home during the time my kids were growing up as much as I could. In other words, both the moms and dads need to be sharing the responibilities of raising the kids. And that is the major problem I have with Olivia St. John's column. First of all, did she ever once mention the fact that Todd Palin has joint responsibility for raising the children? No! Not even once! And when Sarah gets elected, I'm sure that they'll be making enough money that Todd can take some time off from his occupation to help out. Did she ever think of that? Did she ever mention that sometimes dads are caught up in their professions, and can't share in the responsibilities as they should be? Sure, some dads may be making plenty of money for the mom to stay home with the kids, and possibly homeschool their kids; but does it always allow for the dad to have time with the kids, especially if he has to work two jobs? I guess one other big problem I had with the story is that Olivia is assuming that Sarah Palin is a "feminist". Does she define "feminist" as any woman working outside of the home? I don't know, but moose and caribou hunting, which Sarah Palin does, doesn't sound like the traditional type label of "feminist" to me, but I'm just saying... Just because she has the great abilities to do with what God gave her, does NOT make Sarah Palin a "feminist". Okay, let me get back on track here. Not all parents have any choice but to work. Sometimes it really does take both parents working, sometimes more than one job. And I will agree, that sometimes, people with kids put their jobs/careers ahead of their kids. Or, perhaps they just want to earn a good income so they can send their kids to college? Again, I'll say that it all depends on the parents sharing the responsibilities of "home making", while earning what they can and have the gifts to do to make a living. It really all comes down to this: We all have the choice to balance our careers and our lives with raising a family. Many of us do a fine job, especially in a two-parent family. And some parents fail. And then sometimes families are broken up by divorce or even death. How about that, Ms. St. John? Then what do you say about a mom or dad having to work more and spend less time with the kids? Does that always lead to disfunctional kids? Absolutely not! It can be a challenge, but even single parents can still balance a career with raising kids. Otherwise, why don't we just give welfare to all single parents so that they can stay home and not work, so they can raise their kids, full-time? Olivia St. John needs a jolt - of reality. read more | digg story
