Mystery Solved!

FRIDAY 9-26-08… I always thought there was something a little weird about that group calling itself People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) They do all kinds of weird things like throwing red paint on women who happen to be wearing a fur coat….they’ve put themselves on public display–naked–in a cage, with their bodies painted like a tiger.

The group has done so many things that would totally embarrass a normal individual, but the PETA people seem to have no shame. Actress Pamela Anderson is a PETA “trophy” member, but has been caught sneaking around to eat a burger and other things off limits to PETA people. But, she’s still their spokesperson.

They are all vegetarians, financially supported by other vegetarians (as well as unknowing innocent people who send in contributions without realizing that not one dime of donated money goes to the welfare an ANY animal. All it does it keep the officials running the group living “high on the hog” so to speak.)

But now, I think I can better understand why there are so many idiots in that group. According to a news item out of Melbourne, Australia, scientists have discovered that going vegetarian could be bad for your brain. Those on a meat-free diet (as all PETA people are) are six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.

According to the news article, the link was discovered by Oxford University scientists who used memory tests, physical checks and brain scans to examine 107 people. It confirms earlier research showing a link between brain atrophy and low levels of B12.

So now we know; the PETA people do what they do because they don’t have the brains of NORMAL people. Mystery solved!

Back To The Voting Booth (Again)

THURSDAY 9-25-08…Just a little over a month now, and Californians will be heading to the polls. As is usually the case here in California, voters will find an awful lotta’ crap on the ballot. You may recall all the times we’ve headed to the polls only to find out that a “yes” vote means no, and a “no” vote means yes. I expect that again this year. It seems to accomplish what the pushers shoot for; confusion.

I have a standard philosophy when it comes to ballot propositions. If the proposition includes enacting a fee, I read it as enacting a tax. I do the same with the word “bond.” If it’s a bond measure, it is a tax, because we–the voters–end up paying for bonds that’re issued.

There’s only a couple of propositions that I’m interested in this time. Proposition 8 which would restate that marriage is between one man and one woman. To do otherwise would mean that I’m in favor of overturning five thousand years of this planet’s culture. And if that should happen, just how long do you think it’ll be before three or four men decide they wanna’ get married to each other…..or three or four women….or one man and ten women (because they all love each other.)

The other is Proposition 11, which if passed, would take from the lawmakers their power to draw political boundaries. If passed, the voters will be able to choose the politicians…and that’s the way representative democracy is supposed to work. Right now, it’s not working that way, and you see the mess this state finds itself in.

And by the way, just so you know…the “No on Prop 11” is being spearheaded by a group calling itself “Citizens For Accountability.” It’s slogan is “Stop the Power Grab.” Who formed the group? Democrat politicians who want to hang onto the power they have by drawing the political boundaries. Those politicians want prop 11 defeated so they can keep the current status quo.

Oh it’s gonna’ be so interesting to see what direction California voters want the state to go.

Tax Cheats – In Congress!

WEDNESDAY 9-24-08…His name is Charles Rangel. He is a congressman, and chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. His committee writes the tax laws that we all must abide by…..or go to jail if we’re caught failing to abide by Charlie Rangel’s tax laws.

But, apparently, Charlie doesn’t feel those tax laws are meant for HIM. They’re just meant for everybody else. You see, Charlie has been playing fast and loose with those tax laws, ignoring the ones he doesn’t like, which as it turns out, appears to be MOST of ‘em. So now, Charlie is the subject of an ethics committee investigation. Unfortunately, the ethics committee is controlled by Democrats….and Charlie is a Democrat.

For openers, there’s the unreported income, plus unpaid taxes on his beach house in the Dominican Republic. His lawyers and accountants uncovered new discrepancies in the personal financial disclosure documents every lawmaker is required to file.

His papers over the past ten years show no reference to the sale of a home he once owned in Washington D.C. The details of property he bought in Florida shows a value which changes suspiciously from year to year–and even from page to page. The values range from fifty thousand to one hundred thousand, and all the way up to five hundred thousand.

He admits he owes the IRS at least $10,000 in back taxes for unreported income from the rental of his vacation villa, plus other amounts to state and city tax collectors. He admits that he never reported the rental income over a 20 year period, and received a NO-INTEREST mortgage. (I wonder which failed financial institution gave him that. Fannie? Freddie?)

Over this past weekend, Rangel ended up writing a number checks to cover past due taxes on his ’04, ’05, and ’06 returns related to the UNREPORTED rental income. The IRS got checks totaling $4,803, and New York State got $6,022 in back taxes. None of that included late charges or fines.

You try dissing the IRS and state taxes for three years in a row and see if they’ll let YOU off the hook. (Only if you are a democrat congressman, and chairman of the powerful tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.)

Mesmerizing The Masses?

TUESDAY 9-23-08…The Summer reruns on TV were in full swing and as boring as watching paint dry. So my wife and I decided to do something different for the evening. We had an old CD containing classic western movies from the late thirties and early forties. So, we popped some corn and settled back for a few laughs at the way things used to be. Bad acting, poor plot lines, with the hero changing horses from one scene to the next.

Of course, nobody was supposed to notice, but when a black and white paint with a white face, being ridden by the hero is suddenly seen on a black and white paint with a black face….it was a curious thing to see. But, back when we were kids, we didn’t see it. We weren’t paying that much attention when we were kids. In fact, we weren’t paying attention to the horses at all.

Then there was the usual gunfights between the good guys and the bad guys, and we never questioned how a six-shooter could fire twenty five shots without reloading. We were just immature kids back then….and only saw what we wanted to see. We never questioned such movies because we were being mesmerized by the action. The theater was full of non-thinking and non-questioning children.

But as adults, we can plainly see all the mistakes, the goofs, flaws…and what was intended to be a serious movie turned out to be one great big comedy of errors. I couldn’t help but compare our experience with what’s happening today on the campaign trail.

Followers of the Obama cult seem like immature kids who only see and hear what they want to see and hear….ignoring all the mistakes, the goofs the flaws, the lies and the fantasy. Only when they grow up and mature, will they be able to see the error of their thought processes. They’ll realize that Obama merely had the ability to mesmerize the idiots among us with his speaking ability, while saying absolutely nothing.

Bottom line: Obama appeals to the non-thinking, and worse…the non-questioning democrat masses.

Straight Out Of The Communist Manifesto

MONDAY 9-22-08…Democrat vice presidential nominee, Joe Biden admits wealthier Americans will pay more in taxes if Barack Obama and he, are elected. On the campaign trail, Biden says “Paying more in taxes is the patriotic thing to do. It’s time to be patriotic…time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.” Then, appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America”, Biden said “We want to take the money and put it back in the pockets of middle-class people.”

So, folks….the bottom line is this; Obama and Biden admit they’ll raise taxes on those earning $250 thousand a year….and give that money to those earning less….and says “It’s the patriotic thing to do”.

What does it sound like to you? It sounds to me like an Obama administration plans to make the final push of this country into Marxist Socialism/Communism. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor may sound good to the residents of Sherwood Forest, and it may sound good in communist countries, but for the United States of America?

It was Karl Marx, German economist and Communist political philosopher who said “From each according to their ability….to each according to their needs.”

It sounds to me like that statement is to become the motto of the Democrat Party and a Barack Obama administration. If that should happen, may God have mercy on the United States of America.

Obama -The Golden Calf

FRIDAY 9-19-08…The cult following of Barack Obama reminds me so much of the Israelites. Moses and his brother Aaron led them out of bondage in Egypt and they sojourned in the wilderness for forty years. They survived on Manna from Heaven during their quest to reach the promised land.

But, somewhere along they way, they tired of the status quo, and wanted change. When Moses went up in the mountains to commune with God (and receive the ten commandments) the restless Israelites began to murmur among themselves. They wanted “change”. They bad-mouthed Moses while he was away, and didn’t take kindly to Aaron either.

Moses and Aaron’s “poll numbers” dipped to rock bottom.

The Israelites decided the best way to bring about “change” was to deny their God and create a new one. So, they crafted with their own hands, a new god to worship. It was a golden calf. And they fell to their knees to worship the inanimate object. They rejoiced, saying this “new god” would bring about the change they wanted. But they never specified what changes they wanted. They just wanted “change”.

Sound familiar? Look at the faces of the throngs that amass to hear the words of Barack Hussein Obama. Words….just words….promising change. But never quite willing to be explicit. Change…..from what TO what? Doesn’t matter! It’s Obama, and those who follow him are willing to follow him anywhere. Even to the gates of hell.

Wolf -In Sheep’s Clothing

THURSDAY 9-18-08…While hosting the talk show KPAY Liveline for nearly two decades, I distinctly remember sharing with the listening audience the words of Islamic terrorists; “We will not rest until the flag of Islam flies over the White House, and all the world bows down to Allah.”

Today, that threat doesn’t seem quite as far-fetched as it did back then. Today, we have a presidential candidate with a history that is really complicated when compared to presidential candidates of the past.

Barack Hussein Obama is being paraded around as African-American, but his name is Arabic. His Freudian slip during an interview on network TV caught my ear when he said “My Muslim Faith” only to be corrected by the interviewer (George Stephanopoulos) who said “you mean your Christian faith, right?”

Public records in Indonesia list Obama as a Muslim during his early years, while a number of childhood friends have told the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim. Even in his book “Dreams From My Father” Obama acknowledges studying the Quran and describes the public school he attended as a Muslim school. In an interview with the New York Times, Obama describes the Muslim call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.

Author Jack Wheeler, who for years wrote a weekly intelligence update says this of Obama: “He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he PRETENDS he is exclusively.”

The story of the wolf in sheep’s clothing comes glaringly to mind.

Perhaps terrorist’s claims that they will “not rest until the flag of Islam flies over the White House and the whole world bows down to Allah” wasn’t just empty terrorist rhetoric after all.
