Barack Obama has put out an ad that simply reminded us John McCain cannot use a computer. Well guess what .... Barack cannot land a jet plane on an aircraft carrier at night.

In my former career, we had a term for people who presented great presentations that promised short timelines, low costs, and things that we knew could not be done. Of course in a year or two they were back asking for more money or more time or a design change. We usually held their feet to the fire and they lost a bunch of money for their lies. Unfortunately, politicians do not lose money when they lie. Such a shame. "SLICKS" was the term we used for them. I actually believed these slick more...

Of course in a year or two they were back asking for more money or more time or a design change. We usually held their feet to the fire and they lost a bunch of money for their lies. Unfortunately, politicians do not lose money when they lie. Such a shame. SLICKS were the term we used for them. I actually believed these slick people when I was a young person, but I finally grew up after seeing their lies and performance bite the dust a few times. Obama is a slick. I admit, he is a good one, with pretty good presentations, but still a slick. I have seen hundreds of slicks that were much more believable than Obama, all promising the moon. He will actually do one of the following four things. 1. Break his promises, using something as a excuse, probably the republicans. or 2. He will raise taxes or 3. He will stop the war on terror and impoverish the military. or 4. Run the national debt out of sight and bankrupt the country. Now, which do you perfer?

I forgot to mention that the billionair's brother also moved out of state. He was equally rich. Then he died. Just think of the estate tax money lost.

I posted the following in its own blog. If you want to comment about the following, please to to the blog entitled Reality Check: Rich people, etc. I am going to tell a couple of true stories how rich people, companies, and stockholders have acted when confronted with adverse actions in their lives. 1. One of the richest billionaires in the world was charged with a DWI. The press had a field day. You can imagine the press, I hope. She lived in a state (her home state) with a 10 percent income tax -on top of her federal tax. She moved to another state, which by the way had no income tax. Her home state probably lost $50,000,000 worth of taxes for the next 30-40 years, say $1.5 billion because of the way she was treated. Pretty stupid of the home state I would say. $1.5 billion would pay for a lot of schools and teachers. 2. A millionaire from South Africa wanted to leave the country 30 years ago. The government would only let him leave with $10,000. His plant, equipment, and materials were worth millions. SO, he made stainless steel parts that he shipped to various countries and sold them to the receiving distributors, which he also owned, BELOW manufacturing cost. He moved his money out of South Africa one below cost part at a time. He was not stupid. One can do the same thing with bananas or timber, or plywood, or any real property that you can imagine. 3. It does not take much to set up a offshore business with low taxes. Why should a stockbroker or analysis or fund manager or any other investor or owner have to live in the US? I recently saw a program on TV about how US farmers are moving to Brazil. Sheeee, when the farmers leave, what next. 4. When a US company like Budweiser sells out to a overseas company, who of course will pocket any profits, who wins?? Does the US taxpayer win?? The stockholders won because they got a great offer, but I wonder who will be directing the company in the future?? Someone from the US?? Do not under estimate the smarts of people that have worked hard all of their lives to become comfortable, or even rich. They have brains or they would not be where they are. They don't like thieves, even government thieves.

I didn't say that I have no respect for McCain. I did my time in the military, and I've known many brave Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines. They all have my utmost respect. I do not think that he can lead this country in the direction we need to go. He has fumbled for answers on important issues, and actually to me, he is vague and his speeches and answers sound more like a used car salesman. I think he made a bad choice in Palin. I think he chose her b/c she is a woman and he was hoping to cash in on Clinton followers who want a woman in the White house. I don't think she was fully vetted. Can anyone say with a straight face that she was? Really? With the way she has handled her stint as Governor and good ole boy politics, she is one of the last people I want anywhere near the Presidency. I posted what I felt could accurately be proven, (except for my own opinions, which are stated as such). I was pretty sure that everyone was familiar with the circumstances surrounding the downing of his aircraft over Vietnam. My bad. Many feel the need to post inaccuracies about Obama. I could do the same, such as anything from the vietnam veterans against John McCain. Acutally, it was while researching the accusations about Obama, such as him being a Muslim, going to a Muslim school, won't put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem, using the Koran to be sworn into office etc, that I really came to support him. So I have to thank all of the fanatic McCain supporters for that! LoL! THANKS! Even though I support Obama, I really would like the best man to win. No need for me to employ below the belt tactics to sway people to my way of thinking. Some people will do or say anything to get their candidate elected, whether he is the best choice or not. We all want things to improve in this country, and we are all going to choose the one we think will get us there. So I will only post what I think is accurate, and my thoughts on it. I won't pass on bs just b/c someone sent me an e mail saying it's true. I do have the ability to do research, and I'm surprised that many of the self-proclaimed educated-intelligent people here take so much at face value. I'm not a lamb following the herd. Hopefully, the best candidate will win.

Sarah Palin is invited to meet with the Pope while he is vacationing south of Rome in Venice. The liberal press reluctantly watches the semi-private audience, hoping they will be able to allot minimal coverage, if any. The Pope asks Governor Palin to join him on a Gondola ride through the canals of Venice. They're admiring the sights and agreeing on moral issues when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water. The gondolier starts to reach for the Pontiff's cap with his pole, but this move threatens to overturn the floating craft. Sarah waves the tour guide off, saying, 'Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry.' She steps off the gondola onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Pope's hat, bends over and picks it up. She walks back across the water to the gondola and steps aboard. She hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence. The next morning the topic of conversation among Democrats in Congress, CBS News, NBC News, ABC News, CNN, the New York Times, Hollywood celebrities, and in France and Germany is: 'Palin Can't Swim.'

The following 'speech' was written recently by an ordinary Maine-iac [a resident of the People's Republic of Maine ]. While satirical in nature, all satire must have a basis in fact to be effective. This is an excellent piece by a person who does not write for a living. > The speech George W. Bush might give: > * > *Normally, I start these things out by saying 'My Fellow Americans.' Not doing it this time. If the polls are any indication, I don't know who more than half of you are anymore. I do know something terrible has happened, and that you're really not fellow Americans any longer. > I'll cut right to the chase here: I quit. Now before anyone gets all in a lather about me quitting to avoid impeachment, or to avoid prosecution or something, let me assure you: There's been no breaking of laws or impeachable offenses in this office. > The reason I'm quitting is simple. I'm fed up with you people. I'm fed up because you have no understanding of what's really going on in the world. Or of what's going on in this once-great nation of ours. And the majority of you are too damned lazy to do your homework and figure it out. > Let's start local. You've been sold a bill of goods by politicians and the news media. * > Meanwhile, all you can do is whine about gas prices, and most of you are too damn stupid to realize that gas prices are high because there's increased demand in other parts of the world, and because a small handful of noisy idiots are more worried about polar bears and beachfront property than your economic security. > > We face real threats in the world. Don't give me this 'blood for oil thing. If I were trading blood for oil I would've already seized Iraq's oil fields and let the rest of the country go to hell. And don't give me this 'Bush Lied...People Died' crap either. If I were the liar you morons take me for, I could've easily had chemical weapons planted in Iraq so they could be 'discovered.' Instead, I owned up to the fact that > the intelligence was faulty. * > > *Let me remind you that the rest of the world thought Saddam had the goods, same as me. Let me also remind you that regime change in Iraq was official US policy before I came into office. Some guy named ' Clinton ' established that policy. Bet you didn't know that, did you? > Now some of you morons want to be led by a junior senator with no understanding of foreign policy or economics, and this nitwit says we should attack Pakistan , a nuclear ally. And then he wants to go to Iran and make peace with a terrorist who says he's going to destroy us. While he's doing that, he wants to give Iraq to al Qaeda, Afghanistan to the Taliban, Israel to the Palestinians, and your money to the IRS so the government can give welfare to illegal aliens, who he will make into citizens, so they can vote to re-elect him. He also thinks it's okay for Iran to have nuclear weapons, and we should stop our foreign aid to Israel . Did you sleep through high school? > > You idiots need to understand that we face a unique enemy. Back during the cold war, there were two major competing political and economic models squaring off. We won that war, but we did so because fundamentally, the Communists wanted to survive, just as we do. We were simply able to out spend and out-tech them. * > > *That's not the case this time. The soldiers of our new enemy don't care if they survive. In fact, they want to die. That'd be fine, as long as they weren't also committed to taking as many of you with them as they can. But they are. They want to kill you, and the ___tards are all over the globe. > > You should be grateful that they haven't gotten any more of us here in the United States since September 11. But you're not. That's because you've got no idea how hard a small number of intelligence, military, law enforcement, and homeland security people have worked to make sure of that. When this whole mess started, I warned you that this would be a long and difficult fight. I'm disappointed how many of you people think a long and difficult fight amounts to a single season of 'Survivor.' * > > *Instead, you've grown impatient. You're incapable of seeing things through the long lens of history, the way our enemies do. You think that wars should last a few months, a few years, tops. > > Making matters worse, you actively support those who help the enemy. Every time you buy the New York Times, every time you send a donation to a cut-and-run Democrat's political campaign, well, dang it, you might just as well Fed Ex a grenade launcher to a Jihadist. It amounts to the same thing. > > In this day and age, it's easy enough to find the truth. It's all over the Internet. It just isn't on the pages of the New York Times, USA Today, or on NBC News. But even if it were, I doubt you'd be any smarter. Most of you would rather watch American Idol or Dancing with Stars. > > I could say more about your expectations that the government will always be there to bail you out, **even if you're too stupid to leave a city that's below sea level and has a hurricane approaching.** * > > *I could say more about your insane belief that government, not your own wallet, is where the money comes from. But I've come to the conclusion that were I to do so, it would sail right over your heads. > > So I quit. I'm going back to Crawford. I've got an energy-efficient house down there (Al Gore could only dream) and the capability to be fully self-sufficient for years. No one ever heard of Crawford before I got elected, and as soon as I'm done here pretty much no one will ever hear of it again. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to die of old age before the last pillars of America fall. * > > *Oh, and by the way, Cheney's quitting too. That means Pelosi is your new President. You asked for it. Watch what she does carefully, because I still have a glimmer of hope that there are just enough of you remaining who are smart enough to turn this thing around in 2008. > > So that's it. God bless what's left of America . > > Some of you know what I mean. The rest of you, kiss off. > > PS - You might want to start learning Farsi, and buy a Koran.*

"A Short History of Beer and the Wheel" Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter. The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: 1. Liberals 2. Conservatives. Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement. Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventua lly evolved into women. The rest became known as girliemen. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided. Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass. Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard iberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat. Conservatives drink domestic beer. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are engineers, IT persons, big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, Marines and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living. Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

This was written or quoted by someone named John I think. Last name unknown. I found it on a blog. If he is also on here, sorry. I think it nails the problem on the head. Date: 2008-10-21, 5:44PM Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." I laughed. Once in the restaurant my server had on a "Obama 08" tie, again I laughed as he had given away his political preference -- just imagine the coincidence. When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful. At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more.

My biggest fear for Obama is that he'd be a prime target for assassination by some disgruntled bubba from Arkansas. Upon hearing the news Biden's head explodes and he most resembles an eggplant with a great smile. The Right Honorable Nancy Pelosi ascends to the Presidency. All of the Obama supporters smack their foreheads in unison and say "why didn't I think of that" McCain can be seen polishing his Silver Star wondering what might have been

bloginamillion, thanks for McCain's flying history. It really does indicate his courage a little, but you forgot to mention all of the trips over Vietnam where I believe he had another crash. Why didn't you mention that? Fighter pilots are a different breed, in fact anyone who flies a warplane of any sort has to have unbelievable courage and be a bit of a thrill seeker. I have know a few fighter pilots, a few test pilots, and some were called astronauts. They most all settled down in a few years and became middle aged men just like the rest of us. One of the calmest men I ever had working for me flew 43 bombing missions over Germany. The life life expectancy was 15 bombing missions so he was certainly living on borrowed time. Not many of them would do what they did when they were young, but they all probably still have a lot of courage. We need such men, but it would not be for me. I like my skin too much. Such men have earned my respect and should have yours. In fact, the entire world should be greatful for their efforts to rid the world from evil.

Summary: I am simply for what is best for the US. I find it absolutely horrible that charm and debating are even considered as qualifications to become the president of the US. Obama is less qualified to be president than a first line manager of my old organization, let alone head of the whole organization or head of the country. Even first line (the lowest) managers have to have management training, business training, ethics courses, etc. etc. Obama hasn't had the first course, but you can bet your boots that McCain has had many, starting at the academy and many more on his way to becoming a Col. in the Navy in charge of 1000 men. To think Obama is qualified is absurd and anyone who has had positions of great responsibility knows that. Would I rather have someone else as President than these two? Sure, but unfortunately these are the only two choices at this point. Obama is scary to me, McCain is not.

We need a president that understands the following: The war on terrorism is the most important thing in the world, and if we bankrupt the country, or even the world, it will be worth it.

Something I wrote elsewhere: Here is the big difference I see between Obama, Hillary, and the like vs Bush and McCaine. Bush and McCain were in the military service and totally understand the threat to the US and the world of evil people, countries, religions, or communism. They have seen it up close and personal. Same for Bush senior, who was shot down I believe in WWII. Obama, Hillary, and the other ones who don't understand the need to draw the line on terrorist are just to young or dumb to understand. I want someone who understands the threat to the world by terrorist as my president, even if he can't make a speech.

This is something I wrote elsewhere: Well, I must admit that I have learned something from all of this mess. I need to take acting lessons. I need to learn how to make good presentations. I need to suck up to certain folks, in this case the poor people. Lie, Lie, Lie. It will get you everywhere. The truth will probably get you fired or not elected, in this case. I don't have to know what I am talking about. Promise what they want to hear. You can always recant later or just get a new job. Oh, wait, I already learned that in my former career. Senility.

It is the democratic congress that has done all of the spending and failed to protect the currency with proper regulations, and Obama has blamed Bush. "Repeat a lie a thousand times and it becomes the truth" usually attributed to Dr.Joseph Gobbels, Hitler's propaganda minister.

A post from the net: "I have ONE question to ask all Obama supporters.... Name ONE accomplishment Obama has made during his Senatorial career that makes you think he is eligible to be President of the United States? When asked this question today on Hannity's radio show...not ONE of the Obama supporters could think of ANYTHING that Obama has accomplished in the last 3 years as Senator.

"The truth is sometimes so precious that it must be surrounded by a bodyguard of lies" - Sir Winston Churchill "Men are basically smart or dumb and lazy or ambitious. The dumb and ambitious ones are dangerous and I get rid of them. The dumb and lazy ones I give mundane duties. The smart ambitious ones I put on my staff. The smart and lazy ones I make my commanders." - Attributed to Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, on how he selects officers for staff and command. And I would like to add that men that are ambitious and think they are smart, that think they have all the answers, are the most dangerous of all.

Quoting author: be careful what you wish for.... and whoever wishes for this Presidency must have a lot of guts... bashing is gauche. period. now is the time to unite behind whoever is elected and pull our country out of our economic plight. who would want to be President? it is dangerous & a pretty much unthankful position. i admire both of them and their families. the sacrifice is admirable... hugs to you darlin, kitten
Gauche is one of my favorite words. In Italian it's sinistre... gauche or sinister refers to left handed. Both Obama and McCain are left handed... is it a coincidence? PS... and Biden got 5 student deferments throughout the 60s. He went from undergrad through law school and then directly to Congress... he never had a real job.... and he ranked in the bottom third of any class he was part of. He has hair plugs, a frozen smile that makes me think he has no central nervous system, almost died from a brain aneurysm... the next in line for the Presidency is Nancy Pelosi. God save us!
