Unity and Barack Obama

Now we know exactly what Barack Obama means by his call for unity: Silence those who disagree with him:The Obama campaign has decided to heave out three newspapers from its plane for the final days of its blitz across battleground states -- and all three endorsed Sen. John McCain for president!

The NY POST, WASHINGTON TIMES and DALLAS MORNING NEWS have all been told to move out by Sunday to make room for network bigwigs -- and possibly for the inclusion of reporters from two black magazines, ESSENCE and JET, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. Source: The Drudge Report

Obama: Bad News Barry

Why he is not the better choice here.

Obama Attacks Joe

What is the content of Obama's character? He attacks Joe the Plumber, because Joe supposedly makes $250,000 per year (which Joe denies).

So Obama's message is clear: He wants to punish people who succeed (or are on the road to success) financially. If he can't punish them financially, he will pillory a private citizen.

In Obama's world, a guy who dares to question him and his desire for government "to spread the wealth around" deserves to be punished. Obama must have no conscience whatsoever to smear average citizen, Joe the plumber, including spreading a big lie about Joe's income.

Obama's Tax Plan

Obama's Tax Plan is simple: Punish success and reward failure.

Joe the plumber sees it. No wonder the MSM, all left-wing, is smearing Joe with all its fury.
Public disclosures of a private citizen, the liberal MSM at its worst:
Joe is not a licensd plumber. So what? A license is not a prerequisite to owning a plumbing business that employs licensed plumbers.Joe has tax liens. My conclusion, taxes are too high and too tough to pay for non-employee folks who have to file estimated returns. If employees, who now have taxes withheld, had to actually write checks, they would see and truly feel how burdensome the tax system is.Joe is a distant cousin to Charles Keating. Wow. Could the smears get any more irrelevant?

The Kennesaw Comparison

Gun bans cut crime, don't they?

The Knox Report
From the Firearms Coalition
by Jeff Knox

(October 7, 2008) In 1981, Morton Grove, Illinois became the first town in the U.S. to pass a flat out ban on the possession of handguns within the town limits by anyone except police and active duty military during the performance of their official duties. In response, the town of Kennesaw, Georgia passed a gun law of their own in March of 1982. The Kennesaw law was almost the exact opposite to the Morton Grove ordinance. Rather than banning handgun possession, Kennesaw required every head-of-household to keep at least one firearm and appropriate ammunition in their home – with exemptions for those who had religious or philosophical objections to maintaining or using weapons. In other words, gun ownership was mandatory except for people who didn’t want to own a gun.

While Morton Grove became an instant media darling, Kennesaw became a pariah and a punch line. Pundits and “reporters” made jokes a…

Obama Lied, Children Died

From discussing the final presidential debate:The next big lie came during the debate on abortion. McCain pointed out Obama’s radical positions on the issue, including his repeated opposition to the Illinois version of the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act. Obama responded with a series of lies:There was a bill that was put forward before the Illinois Senate that said you have to provide lifesaving treatment and that would have helped to undermine Roe v. Wade. The fact is that there was already a law on the books in Illinois that required providing lifesaving treatment, which is why not only myself but pro-choice Republicans and Democrats voted against it.During that period, the Attorney General reported that the practice of abandoning infants born alive during late-term abortions was not covered by the law. Jill Stanek and others testified to the practice, and the Illinois Senate heard testimony that suggested that as many as 20% of all late-term abortions resulted in a …
