Hope and Change

The Democrats are HOPING there won’t be much CHANGE on Tuesday November 2, 2010.

We HOPE the Republicans are paying attention.

Barney Frank’s district

Here is the Massachusetts 4th district where Barney Frank, one of the two major supporters of Enron accounting for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, among other gross errors, is running. While everyone agrees Fannie and Freddie were the enablers of the housing crisis, Barney saw no reason to include reforms for them in his financial reform legislation.

Barney Franks Mass. 4th District

This state thinks flyover country like Iowa is a bunch of hicks. You call that a district? That is an example of Gerrymandering. If the people of Mass. reelect Barney Frank after his role in Fannie and Freddie, they can never again disrespect flyover country.

NAACP still attacking the Tea Party

The NAACP has released a report about the “bad” Tea Party movement. Same old claim that there are racist hate groups in the mix. Check the irony:

  • They support the party of segregation and Jim Crow laws. Even after 600,000 died fighting a civil war which ended slavery.
  • The same party that created the hyphenated American
  • Intimidation by the New Black Panther Party at a polling site is okay
  • They support illegal immigration even though they are exploited like their ancestors. Call it what it is – Slavery Lite

How is that whole hyphenated American thing working out? It is just another way for the Democrats to exploit Americans of African descent. If these groups were really smart, half of them would run down and register as Republicans. Within a decade, they would all be Americans of African decent and their children’s future would look a lot brighter.

CINC redefined

CINC used to mean Commander IN Chief. With this administration, it means Campaigner IN Chief.

The Republicans will almost certainly take control of the House and the Senate is in play.

He is out trying to fire up his base. The Independents have largely left his cause since they didn’t get the change they had hoped for. In less than 24 months, his administration has added to the national debt an amount greater than the debt from George Washington through Ronald Reagan. Be sure to point this out to ANYONE who speaks of the Reagan deficits.

September 2010 Unemployment – 9.6% – Let the elections begin

The BLS released the September figures, the last before the elections, and the unemployment rate is still at 9.6%. Go ahead, run on “It could have been a lot worse”. Or, “We are moving in the right direction”. But wait, it gets worse. Bloomberg and others have asked economists to look into the future. Using computer models and other SWAG methods, the best they can come up with is 8.3% unemployment for June 2012.

The CBO latest estimate for the 2010 fiscal year deficit, which ended Sept. 30, is just under 1.3 trillion, or 8.9% of the estimated GDP. Since a picture is worth a thousand words:

Federal Deficit as percent of GDP from FY 1900 to FY 2010

Third party campaigning

Put down your “Quantum Field Theory” book for a moment because this is important. The Democrats have made a big claim regarding the Camber of Commerce and foreign money being used for issue ads. This is an out and out unfounded lie. On CBS Face the Nation, David Axelrod challenged the Chamber to prove a negative. Even the liberal media says this is a ridiculous claim. The NRA got an exception on releasing donor lists, but far more exceptions were given to liberal groups or friends of the Democrat party – like AFL-CIO.

This shows how desperate the Democrats have become. They are no longer trying to win over Independents, but have turned to firing up their base so the Republican wave doesn’t turn into a tsunami. Even George Soros is cutting his funding to Democrats because he sees a Republican “avalanche”.

2010 Elections

The Democrats have been told to make the election a choice on old Bush policy and not a referendum on Obama policy. This makes it easy to determine which candidate is the Democrat. They are the ones who say, “President who?”, or “What health care?”.

Of course it will be a referendum. The Democrats do not have any positive results to run on. Even if you lost your job when Bush was President, you most likely have collected far more unemployment while Obama was President. All because this administration put its agenda ahead of the economy. They thought the electorate could live with 8% unemployment while they got THEIR agenda passed. This after telling us we were at the brink of another Great Depression.

Crazy Season is here!

With less than 30 days until the day of voting, you are most likely being bombarded by TV and radio political ads. Last Friday night, PBS Need to Know had two segments on the evils of campaigns as the result of the Citizens United case. Basically the Supremes ruled political ads are free speech protected by the First Amendment.

First they had a segment on the influence of money on the 2010 campaigns. And a little later they had the shadow campaign. I don’t recall either segment mentioning MoveOn.org.

Let the counting begin

Well the One Nation rally is over and the less than scientific counting has begun. One of the speakers claimed to have a satellite image. Show us the IMAGE! Odds are there is no such photo. Besides, he said there was a larger crowd than on the 29th of August. No doubt, as the Beck rally was on 8-28. Was that a miss-statement or deception?

For what it is worth, the AP which hardly carries water for Glenn Beck or anyone considered right of center, claims the crowd was smaller.

Organizers claimed they had as many participants as Beck’s rally. But Saturday’s crowds were less dense and didn’t reach as far to the edges as they did during Beck’s rally. The National Park Service stopped providing official crowd estimates in the 1990s.

Who has more money? The rich Republicans or the poor Democrats?

You might be surprised. Since 2000, it has been the Democrats who benefited from large donations by the rich while the Republicans raise most of their money by many small donations.
