Pennsylvania Governor's Debate: Tom Corbett v. D. Onorato

Watching the gubernatorial debate, I noticed that Corbett's opponent, D. Onorato, looks like an old-time undertaker. Perhaps, they put too much makeup on him for the TV lights but he looked ghoulish.

Maybe the undertaker look is appropriate for Onorato.
Because of the tax increases he's supported, Onorato is the Undertaker of the current dead economy.

Also worthy of embalming is Onorato's opposition to tort reform.
Pennsylvania doctors are being driven out of the state at a rapid rate. Of those who remain, their insurance premiums are way too high, and those costs are passed off into the medical care treatment system.

Voting for Onorato is voting for higher business taxes and looming individual tax increases even for people of modest means. A family of four earning $50,000 per annum will get a tax increase of $2500 per year when Bush's tax cuts expire under today's Democrats.

Onorato wants Washington to bail out the state of Pennsylvania after PA defaults on its loans from the Obama administration. Here's another way to deal with PA debt: stop spending.

Daily Kos Endorses Slippery Slate: Chris Coons, Jack Conway, Scott McAdams

You don't want to know. When they're not sitting cross-legged, huddled over, and staring at their navels, the Daily Kos crowd sends out what it calls an
"Orange to Blue" Questionaire.

Apparently all three candidates noted above are clueless enough to get the Daily Kos stamp of Imprimatur. According to the Daily Koo-koo, Coons, Conway, and McAdams all need money pretty badly and so they checked on the blocks on the Daily Koo-koo checksheet they were sent.

What does it take to get on the Daily Koo-Koo financial support list? All three candidates said they'd appeal "don't ask, don't tell," make it a number one priority to regulate greenhouse gasses, another priority to create a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, amend the 2nd Amendment, and hatch a plan for universal medicaid coverage.

You can see they're right on top of things. But why did the DK need a questionaire for that. Aren't all those things de rigeur for "progressive" lefties running as Democrats?

Warren Buffet Buys Ten Percent of Chinese Auto Maker BYD

Everyone knows that Obama - crats are quite vocal in demonstrating against American companies who "export jobs overseas." Those voices see "globalization" as the enemy and say that Republicans are behind it, much the same way Ahmadinajad says the CIA is responsible for 9-11 attacks.

These old-style "globalization truthers" are blind to the billionaire elites like George Soros and Warren Buffet who are strong Obama supporters. Those same globalization truthers would probably have criticized Colombus for opening up European markets and the eventual colonies in the U.S.

But Warren Buffet is a high profile billionaire and his huge investment in a Chinese Auto company could have been made in an American car company. Oh, I forgot.... it's the U.S. government's job to buy up stock in the American companies (with the glaring exception of FORD MOTOR COMPANY).

Not a peep from the "overseas jobs" demagogues. It must be difficult to be so hypocritical as to ignore friendly Obama billionaires while criticizing globalization.

Barletta Vs. Kanjorski in Pennsylvania House Race

I'm rather disappointed that the national media hasn't picked up on this race. I guess Pennsylvania is not sexy enough. But this race has drama. Barletta nearly defeated Kanjorksi in his second contest against the 12 time Representative. Could the third time be the charm?

It should be. Kanjorski has been in office so long he's growing fur and looking more like a werewolf every time he appears on MSNBC--which is often. The mainstream media has been given its marching orders--help Kanjorski.

There's nothing new about that, though, is there? I'm kind of disappointed that the conservative media hasn't taken up Barletta's cause either. Barletta is an originator, a small town mayor with balls enough to make national headlines when it wasn't so popular to point out there was an ILLEGAL immigrant problem.

That's hardly Lou Barletta's only issue, however. Unemployment is a huge problema and that's because the blue state mandarins prefer welfare and government largesse to job creation. Pennsylvania is hostile to business. Kanjorski pours tons of money into his hometown, and has granted millions of federal dollars to family members, but no one seems to get it.

We're so accustomed to corruption in office that we yawn when a politician is only guilty of nepotism. In much of Pennsylvania, nepotism is the reigning social philosophy.

Barletta does have strong support from conservative groups. He has sincere and simple political ads playing on TV-- as opposed to Kanjorski's old-style smear campaign.

Kanjorki's ads are not ashamed of telling lies, telling them long and often. One example is when he accuses Barletta of "Social Security Privatization." That's Kanjorski imitating Ahmadinajead's canards before the United Nations.

Didn't Obama's health care "reform" bill cut $500 billion from Medicare? That's a fact. Kanjorski isn't much troubled with facts. He was a strong voice for ObamaCare....and for bank bailouts...and car company bailouts...and union welfare...and whatever else will keep him in a job to which he feels he has a lifelong right of entitlement.

Pelosi Can't "Drain the Swamp"--She is the Swamp

This information is old news but it hasn't been mentioned lately and it shouldn't be forgotten:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco . StarKist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco , Pelosi's home district. StarKist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi. StarKist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan work force. Paul Pelosi, Nancy's husband, owned $17 million dollars of StarKist stock.

In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25,
Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than that of its competitors. Pelosi was protecting her own pile of money, her first concern as an a member of the California moneyed Democrat elite.

When the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an "economic development credit in American Samoa."

Anwar Awlaki Death Threats Against South Park Cartoonists Et Al

In this cracked up world, Osama wanna-be Anwar Awlaki can send out death threats to American cartoonists of South Park and hardly a peep is heard. But left-wing advocacy groups and other whiners complain that Awlaki is being targeted by military forces.

If there’s anybody begging to be clipped, it’s Awlaki. I hope they get him soon. But we need to spread the word as the Islamist extremist try to suppress civil and constitutional rights in democracies.

It’s way past time to Fight Back!

Celebrate Banned Books Week with a Friend - Associated Content -

Celebrate Banned Books Week with a Friend Adding to my soul destroying damnation as a book banner, I wouldn't like to see Henry Miller's Tropics series in the elementary school library. I would also ban Jean Genet's "The Thief"s Journal" and his play "The Maids." While I'm in my best book banning mode, I'd ban "Maldoror" by Comte De Lautremont, and well....lots more.

A Day of Protests - Slide Show -

A Day of Protests - Slide Show - NYTimes.comThe New York Times photographers took some interesting photos of yesterday's protests at the United Nations. I like the ones about Iran.... numbers 1 and 2....and the one demonstrating against the number of political dissenters hanged by the Iran regime....

Stocks Rise on Prospect of Republican Takeover

Funny that the only optimism coming from Wall Street these days is the prospect of the Republicans taking over the HOuse and making big gains in the Senate. The Democrats know this and are spending a great deal of money for ads countering this dynamic.

Democrat Party ads nearly ALWAYS mention Republicans are the "party of Wall Street," a boring canard which has been obediently chanted by Democrats in every election since the days of the Robber Barons.

Obama took more money from Wall Street than anyone ever did. His political coffers were filled by liberal millionaires and supporters like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett. Obama bailed out the banks, the insurance companies,and Wall Street firms, picking and choosing which ones would thrive and which ones would fail to survive.

No matter what Obama did, no matter how much stimulus, stocks fell, unemployment rose, and people lost confidence. The only thing that's brought the market up in the last week or so has been the mantra that the Democrats will lose and Republicans will be able to stop the hemmorhaging of money which has resulted in a 14 trillion dollar deficit.

Obama is not really Obama, but no one seems to know who he is. Nancy Pelosi's broom seems to have run out of fuel, and Harry Reid is probably secretly cheering for himself to lose so that he can get out of an increasingly embarrassing position.

Meanwhile, those parachutes which you see in the daytime sky are those of Obama's economic advisors--all taking a powder--Summers, Orzag, Roemer...and then some!

Iran's Dictator A-jad Stinks Up the United Nations

Massive protests marked the appearance of Iran's psychopath Ahmadinajead at the United Nations. Thousands of people showed up to denounce I-jad as the killer, holocaust denier, and 9-11 conspirator that he is. But then again, A-jad is just the sort of person you expect to see while strolling in the more tawdry areas of New York--sniveling, cowardly, and furtive as a rat.

The Obama surrender monkeys are shaming America with their egregious insistence on "reaching out" diplomacy. This has provided many occasions for A-jad to insult the civilized world. A-jads thugs are busy right now making nuclear weapons with which they continue to terrorize the world. Considering how many people his thugs murdered during the recent Iranian demonstrations, ultimately suppressing the opposition, A-jad is certainly not the legitimate leader of Iran. But then again, Obama is only continuing the policies of his most shameful predecessors--Jimmy Carter. It was Carter who approved the overthrow of Western Civilization in Iran, and for thanks Carter got the Iranian hostage crisis where Americans were held for umpteen days in blindfolds and paraded in front of TV cameras in a scene that was reminiscent of the Dark Ages.

I"m of two minds when it comes to the location of the United Nations. Mostly, I feel that the United States should cease its support and kick the U.N. to the curb. This is a fanciful notion, I realize, and the realistic part of me acknowledges some vague and idealistic but as yet unrealized purpose in the U.N location in New York City.

Most of the time, though, it seems that the U.N's chief purpose is to denounce Israel and the United States. If we cannot entirely abandon participation in the United Nations, can't we at least put it on a floating barge and put it out to sea?

Progessive Website Peddles Wireless Phone Service

I'm always complaining about the cost of our ATT wireless phone bill but I feel a little better about it now that ATT is being attacked by a "progressive" web site hawking a phone sell competitor named CREDO. The Website I'm referring to is call Alter Nut, or something like that.

So Alter Nut is saying that ATT is the top contributor to the House Tea Party Caucus. That's good with me. Anyone who helps to get rid of Obama and his plutocrat sychophants deserves my support. I'm glad they're giving some of my customer money to a group that promotes independent common sense candidates who are not part of the arrogant presumptuous self-serving entrenched elite who are screwing this country to the wall.

I still think my ATT wireless bill is too high, but now I feel better about it. Plus, the service rarely drops my calls.

Delaware Tea Party Win Rattles Democrats and Republicans - Associated Content -

Delaware Tea Party Win Rattles Democrats and Republicans As catastrophic weather events often defy our attempts at limiting damage, so is the Tea Party phenomenon a wave which dashes upon all shores. At this late date, a better question to ask might be: “Why are these Tea Party candidates winning?”

The short answer is voter anger. While politicians fiddle, working and unemployed Americans feel they are being pushed into hell in a hand basket. Cap-and-trade, runaway stimulus, Obamacare, and the entrenched entitlement arrogance of a privileged political class have caused an outbreak of popular resistance that hasn’t been seen for a long time.

Pocono Pastor Arthur Schirmer Charged with Killing Wife - Associated Content -

Pocono Pastor Arthur Schirmer Charged with Killing Wife - Did Pastor Arthur Schirmer nearly get away with murder? It is a fair question. Crimes committed by figures of authority and trust are often overlooked. Books have been written about such things. Whether or not Arthur Schirmer can rival Elmer Gantry in the hypocrisy of his evangelism remains to be seen, but his “traffic accident” tied the hands of the local police department until the church suicide of Joseph Musante. That’s when new leads emerged.

Top Ranked News: September 7, 2010

I don’t know how many days we are into the Obama administration. Too many. As much as I think Obama’s vying with Jimmy Carter for the title of America’s Worst President, I don’t blame the brother for trying to get over. What I can’t get over is that the U.S. is full of so many idiots, with the most idiots being the chumps who voted for Obama.

African-Americans have a bit of an excuse, though their vote was equally stupid. Having an African-American president may brighten the eyes of little black children, but that’s the limit of it. The black vote was blind to everything except color. Not to say there weren’t any qualified black candidates, but Obama was the worst one anyone could have selected. I was thinking Colin Powell who, inexplicably, supported Obama. At least Powell worked his way up from Bronx. No one doubts his patriotism or service to America.

Obama’s a wuss,. Some have called him an “Erkle” but that’s not doing justice to Erkle. I’d rather have Erkle as president than Obama.

Anyway, now comes Obama’s New Stimulus Plan for 50 billion. Too late, Obama—that’s putting lipstick on a pig (your own misogynistic expression re Sarah). Obama’s relying on the famous American tendency of people to forget yesterday.
Obama killed America’s economy with his near trillion dollars stimulus plan. Unemployment got worse. They come up with some jive-ass shit about “saving jobs.” Listen, no one gives a shit about “saved jobs” except Joe Biden and the other people who tripped and fell on Obama’s dick.

I’m counting the problems Obama has made worse:

A foreign policy of appeasement has got America marching backwards and apologizing for existing. He kisses Russian ass as the Russians screw us regarding Iran. Foreign policy weakness and lack of vision lead to War with Iran.
Fancy Man Obama favors “Beer Summits” to rational law enforcement and is so clueless he makes impassioned pleas on behalf of Ground Zero Mosque Nazis. Pinbrain Eric Holder wants to try KSM in New York—what an A-hole!

Obama and Holder, the Gay Twin Demons of Failed Law Enforcement, spend even more money suing Sheriff Joe Arpiao, the Governor of Arizona, and Arizona itself.

Obama dishes it out as if he's entitled but he can't take it. Now comes Obama’s latest whining plaint that “people treat me like a dog.” Oh, puhleeeeeze! It’s about time the president stopped acting like a little bitch and grew up. That’s the kind of crap you hear in the 8th grade (not even). President Bush was slimed beyond belief and you never heard so much as a grunt or groan of complaint coming from him. The liberal left said disgusting things about him, whereas all the media, including the conservative media, has been overly deferential to Obama.

It’s as if the president has regressed instead of learned how to be president. I mean, we knew he had no experience, no clue, no leadership ability. We elected him because a bunch of guilty liberals launched into paroxysms of 60s nostalgia.

Upstate New York's Bike Path Rapist - Associated Content - associatedcontent.comIt wasn’t until September 29, 1990, that the bike path rapist killed his first victim, Linda Yalem, a Buffalo university student. She was sexually assaulted and murdered in nearby Amherst, not far from Buffalo. A prostitute was murdered next, her body discovered beside the railroad track jogging path. A 14 year old girl was strangled and raped on her way to school in 1994, but survived. At that point, the rapist-murderer seemed to have retired with a total of nine rapes and two murders.

How Barack Obama Became Mr. Unpopular - Yahoo! News

How Barack Obama Became Mr. Unpopular - Yahoo! NewsHere's a refreshing article. It's big news when the MSM notices that a growing number of Obama voters are EXTREMELY disappointed with the guy they voted for.

Still, I wonder how they bought into the entire hype in the first place. This is TIME magazine, fer chrissake'!

Here We Go Again With Mideast Peace Dance: Obama's Turn

The Obama Mideast Dog and Pony Show is happening today. I feel sorry for the Israelis, having to go through the motions yet one more time. Sheikh Obama has stuck his butt as far out in the direction of the Muslim countries as anyone possibly could, and the only democracy in the Middle East must endure it all and then "come to the table" every time an American politician wishes to take media center stage to impress their left wing internationalist friends.

Enter Hamas, guns blazing away at Jewish pregnant women and Israeli civilians driving down the road. Hamas executed four Israeli civilians in cold blood. What idiot couldn't set up a roadside ambush to kill pregnant women and civilians. The Hamas gunners shot up the car and killed the backseat passengers in the first barrage, but they had to go up close to kill the people in the front seat.

These people are not condemned by Daisy and Imam Rauf, who wish to build a mosque at Ground Zero to commemorate an Al Qaeda slaughter of civilians. But that's not to stray from the subject, the subject being the absurdity of Obama's "Peace Talks." The peace talks are with Abbas, Great Fartah Leader, who only represents one armed gang with very limited control and authority over what happens in the West Bank and Gaza.

You remember, Gaza, don't you? HOw's that workin' out fer ya'? Gaza is just another launching pad for the Muslim Brotherhood.

So what can we expect from this charade? Certainly, Sheikh Obama will need to present the narrative that there has been some "progress." You will hear praise from Olbermann, Maddow, and Matthews and others of the MSNBC Taliban. Inevitably, the Israelis will be shown as stubborn and recalcitrant, frustrating any peace efforts.

But just remember the last time, when Jews trusted that the civilized world would not permit such atrocities as those that occurred at hundreds of concentration camps and Jewish ghettoes. Many Jews, at that time, were trusting and helpful--not realizing the world cared so little about them.

Taking a soft line with Hamas and Hizbollah, "reaching out" to the "Palestinians," describing Israel as an "occupier"...those things are reminiscent of Lord Chamberlain.

Who on the Palestinian side can stop the terror attacks? Who on the Palestinian side can outlaw political-religious psychotics like those who murdered four civilians a few days ago? The question meets with silence.

So there is no "peace partner." Abbas wants power. Hamas and similar nazi groups want to destroy Israel and murder all Israelis. Sheikh Obama wants to prop up his political profile.

Cynical? Not by the long shot. The first step in the peace process is to call a spade a spade, something that has yet to be done.
