We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Just amazing, isn't it? I would like Rush Limbaugh to moderate the next McCain-Obama debate, too! Wonder how that would go over? And still they can't get their guy elected- the Democrats/MSM team record is 1 President elected in the past 7 elections, embarrassing to say the least. You think they would ask why, wouldn't you?
Of more immediate concern is the level of poll watching set up by Ohio Republicans to monitor the early voting? Democrats keep trying to steal these elections and one of these times they will succeed, if they didn't already in 1960 and almost did in 2000.
A stolen election cannot be allowed to stand under any circumstances and the Republicans need to be prepared to litigate at the slightest sign of voter fraud in the big swing states, just as in FL in 2000. The Baker-Stone team literally saved that election for Bush- otherwise it would have been Prince Albert. Let's hope we have equal protection this time, the country's future depends on it.
This is justified to the MSM because a male moderator would be seen as "beating up on the girl". A white female moderator would be seen as bitchy, another benefit for Palin.
They picked a bulletproof moderator. Just like the way they picked Obama. You can't criticize a black person without being a racist, so the moderator is always right. Even if she flavors the debate.
This is a bit OT, but only a bit. You think Obama is teflon? These students find out the hard way. The story doesn't mention this but: the 4 students are minorities, and they tried to, wait DID, pull off a hoax involving the symbology of lynching Obama. The school is treating it as a racist attack and not a hoax on white guilt.
NEWBERG, Ore. (AP) - A Christian university in Oregon said Tuesday it has punished four students who confessed to hanging a likeness of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama from a tree on campus.
George Fox University broke the news to students and staff Tuesday afternoon at an all-campus meeting. About 1,000 people attended, said Rob Felton, a university spokesman.
A statement from the school said the penalties against the four students were "immediate long-term suspension and public service." The school cited federal privacy rules in not disclosing more about the students or their punishment.
The FBI is investigating whether any civil rights were violated.
The commercially produced cardboard cutout of Obama was hung from a tree last week with fishing line around the neck.
A message taped to the cutout read, "Act Six reject." That refers to a scholarship and leadership program for minority and low-income student leaders at Christian colleges primarily located in the Northwest.
Felton wouldn't comment on the students' motive. Instead he cited a statement from Brad Lau, the university's vice president of student life.
"Regardless of the students' intent, the image of a black man hung from a tree is one of the most hurtful symbols of racism in American history," Lau said in the statement. "Displays such as this have no place on a campus that is dedicated to living out the teachings of Jesus."
Lesson here: it doesn't matter if you were fraudulently hanging effigies, doesn't matter if you were trying to get attention for the ACT6 program that pays for your college, you will be punished for HATE if you tie anything around the neck of a black mans cardboard cutout. Even a fishing line "noose".
Just another in a long line of fake noose stories. These hoaxes are helping elect Obama.
