McCain has gone off the edge I used to like him but his lies and missteps (like picking that idiot Palen) have pushed the republican party so far off course they will never recover.


**************GO OBAMA************************** :D :D :D :D :D :D :D


Obama is a Chicago gangster who is going to strip away as many of your freedoms and dollars as he can. You are a MORON !

So what exactly is a true Republican these days Ed?....A nation builder like GW Bush?....A Socialist like John McCain?.....A "no-abortion ever" like Sarah Palin?......A straight shooter like Barry Goldwater?......A "Watch out for the military-industrial complex guy like Dwight D,. Eisenhower?......



RINO has no real meaning.......it's just a misspelled armored animal from Africa! ;)


Perhaps you have a difficult time with defining "Republican" but the definition of "socialist" and "Marxist" is quite apparent. Both apply to Barack Hussein Obama.

As an aside....the economic situation is a direct result of Bill Clinton's and his Democratic controlled Congress of 1993. The significance ? Clinton and his left-wing Congress supported Most Favored Nation Status with Red China. In 1998 Clinton and Congress made MFN permanent ! What do we have today ? Smokestack industries GONE ! Nothing made in this country anylonger, not even paperclips, and a trade deficit in the TRILLIONS with Red China.

So, maybe you ought to consider your Marxist Obama's intentions....he's planning on sending this country right down the sewer !

A supporter of Obama is nothing less than a traitor to his country.

So people like to bash Gov. Palin.....but Joe Biden is a great choice? Give me a break.
“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you - not financially to help him - we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
“Gird your loins,” Biden told the crowd. “We’re gonna win with your help, God willing, we’re gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It’s like cleaning the Augean stables, man.


So Obama is NOT going to handle it properly, we're just supposed to go along with whatever he does, "Wrong"? Holy Crap, we are in trouble.

Hmmmm...Who was it again that announced he was suspending his campaign so that he could rush back to Washington to ensure the passage of the SOCIALIST bailout bill again? (you know.....the SOCIALIST bill that "Socializes" the debt of greedy private businesses with OUR tax money.....That was John SIDNEY McCain, wasn't it??)

Let's see .....2008 minus 1993 is 15 years during which this new type of Republican (Bush/Cheney/McCain Neo-Cons) had plenty of time & the power to save us from the excesses of the evil Democrats, but just made things vastly worse. (Control of Congress for 12 of the last 14 years & the White House for the last 8 years)

Pretty strong language there Dan. Hmmmmm....who else believes in the "My way or the highway" type of thinking & discussion again??
......Oh right.....GW Bush & we've all seen how well his type of thinking has worked out for our country...haven't we. :mad:

As one coal burner to another, a bit of friendly advice:
Resorting to personal attacks is a sign of a weak argument attempting to be covered up with bluster...... & just doesn't work as a debating tactic. It is possible that others may actually be right & you may actually be wrong. ;) ....& that simply disagreeing with you does not make them (or me) "Traitors" to their country.

Exactly! McCain's 300 billion so called mortgage bail out is nothing more then a socialist's idea to "spread the wealth".


What is with this "spread the wealth" crap from McCain anyways? What does he think social security, medicaid, medicare, mass-health, welfare, FDIC guarantee's and stimulus packages are? What about him charging tax on health care from business and then handing us the 5k tax credit for it? That's not "spreading the wealth"?

McCain doesn't want his wealth spread amongst us peons Adam.....He just wants his greedy corporate friend's debts spread!

Spread the debts ...should be his mantra !


(spread my friend's debts so that they can take our tax money & go on 1/2 million $$$ weekend, like AIG execs did AFTER the bailout!! :mad: ...Those are McCain's buddies.

Keep in mind the John McCain has had "Socialized Medicine" all his life also. (Navy "brat" & then Congress)....He just doesn't want the rest of us to get what he has! :mad:

And you have proof of that? Are you sure they're not friends of Obama? C'mon now, if your going to say stuff back it up.
I'm not calling you a liar, I just want links to him....and ONLY him and the Republicans.

I'll see what I can find on other rich buddies Ed but this is pretty damning to McCain showing his involvement with Big Oil for starters. Big Oil, AIG, all the greedy big businesses is who McCain speaks for. It is just th middle class that he could give a damn about, & that's why Powell is backing Obama & not his old friend McCain!

Why do you HATE big Oil? They are the infrastructure that drives this country, christ if you want to go after corporate greed then go after Big Soda, Big WATER and Big Nabisco, they're raping us and not a peep? wow.

Chris Dodd should be in Jail, not talking about how Republicans caused this crisis, Barney Franks should be in Prison right along side him, don't give them a free pass, it's really an afront to anybody who reads the congressional record, it was plain and clear, these guys should resign....but they won't and they'll get re-elected to boot. This is where I part company with the Democrat Party, they have the press in they're back pocket, they run the richest districts throughout the country, 98% of Hollywood Millionares are shills for the liberal movement. Marion Barry, convicted Crack dealer gets re-elected after returning from Jail. William Jefferson ( 100,000 in marked bills in his freezer) is most likely going to win a re-election bid, It goes on and on
The moral compass issue between Conservatives and liberals is vast, but follow the money and it's piled much higher in the Liberal camp, the old cliche nolonger applies to the GOP.

BTW, if the economy is so horrible, how is it OB has just collected 150 MILLION in ONE month? Must be those RICH Republicans turning to Socialism and funding Barkey....right? :D

I believe that ALL of our economic problems can be traced directly back to the greed of Big Oil, aided & abetted by their men in the White House & their bribes of BOTH aisles in Congress......That's why!

Blaming big oil is short sighted and oversimplifying the problems we face Dick . This problem has been long in coming and can not be blamed on a single party or a single industry like folks want to do. I'd love to blame it all on the Bush administration or on the Democratic party for doing this or that, because then the solution would be easy. Reverse a few things and we would be set. Unfortunately that isn't the case and oversimplifying the issues is causing more divisiveness because the general public wants to believe the solution is like flicking a switch. It just isn’t that easy and I don’t think we can solve it as a nation until we stop pointing fingers bacj and forth and make a real honest effort to work on our problems together, regardless of who wins an election.

Oil's profit margins are somewhere around 7 - 9 %, and I know those figures are skewed because of accounting rules, but still, why should we care if a company makes money? I hope they make a boat load of money!! Hell I want my company to make a boat load of money too because I work my tail off. But, I don't get any tax breaks for working my tail off and the government doesn't protect my interests with a military force like we do with oil. We protect oil because oil is wrapped up in our national security and my insurance agency is not. I understand that and I support looking out for our national interests, though we can argue what protecting them actually is. Anyway, I want to see big oil, Big Soda, big airline manufacturer etc. make gobs of money, but they should not be getting tax breaks for making that money. You give tax breaks, subsidized funding and things like that when you want to direct a company, industry or someone in a particular direction, like alternative fuel/ energy sources, rather than rewarding them for doing the same old thing.

That's what they REPORT as earnings....I think it's allot more!
Why should we care what they make?......For the same reason that we cared about what Al Capone was making........They are stealing OUR money...That's why we are mad! :mad: (not mad at you...just at Exxon-Mobil, Bush & Cheney)

I'd rather my tax dollars be spent on Nationalizing Big Oil than Nationalizing AIG's debt!...It's my money, taken a gunpoint by the government & I want to own EXXON.....not Fannie Mae's debt! :mad:
