The Black Clinton?



This is either one hell of a smear campaign or there is some truth to it.  I'm beginning to suspect the latter. 

When his attorney made this statement... The allegations of "private, alleged consensual conduct between adults" is not "not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public."

Now thats a vote of confidence if ever I heard one!


On the other side of the coin he had Stage 4 cancer (the worst) in 2006. I imagine the last thing on his mind was conducting an affair.





Georgia Woman Claims 13-Year Affair With Cain, as Candidate Denies Latest Allegations



A new woman has come forward with allegations against Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, this time claiming the two had a 13-year extramarital affair, but Cain and his advisers deny the claims, just as they have denied the sexual harassment claims that have set back his campaign.




Cain, in an apparent effort to get ahead of the story, appeared Monday afternoon in a cable news interview before the Georgia woman's story aired and said she is "someone who I know, who is an acquaintance, who I thought was a friend," though he denied an affair.

He later issued a statement suggesting the woman's story was another example of "dirty politics and smear tactics" and evidence some people are "afraid of a Cain presidency."

"My plan is to continue to spread my vision on how I would renew America and keep her safe," he said. "I will not fight false claims, as it is not what America needs or wants."

The woman, an Atlanta businesswoman named Ginger White, made the claims in an interview with the Fox affiliate in Atlanta that aired later Monday, details of which were released on the station's website, MyFoxAtlanta.com, after Cain came forward.

"It was pretty simple," White told the station. "It wasn't complicated. I was aware that he was married. And I was also aware that I was involved in a very inappropriate situation, relationship."

She said they met in the late 1990s when Cain, as president of the National Restaurant Association, was making a presentation in Louisville, Ky. He later would fly her to cities where he was speaking and give her gifts, she told the TV station.

"He made it very intriguing. It was fun," White said. "It was something that took me away from my sort of humdrum life at the time, and it was exciting."

Cain never harassed her or treated her poorly, though their physical relationship ended eight months ago, just before Cain announced his candidacy for president, White said. She provided some text messages and phone bills as documentation of her contact with Cain, including as recently as September.

The station also released a statement from Cain's attorney, Lin Wood, who said the allegations of "private, alleged consensual conduct between adults" is not "not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public."

A campaign official who asked to remain anonymous also denied White's claims, telling Fox News they are "baseless false accusations."

The new allegations are only the latest setback for Cain, who has seen his popularity fade since reports surfaced one month ago of sexual harassment allegations dating back to his tenure with the National Restaurant Association.

Although the latest report involves an alleged consensual relationship, the claims may further weaken his support among conservative Republicans concerned about social issues, including the institution of marriage.

Cain has been married for 43 years. His wife, Gloria, rarely appears on the campaign trail but agreed to her first televised interview after the sexual harassment allegations broke.

"I seriously, in my soul, don't think he's that type of person," she said of the charges during the interview on Fox News' "On The Record with Greta Van Susteren."

She acknowledged, however, that their marriage was not perfect.
"There have been troubles ... [but] we have loved each other for 43 years," she said.

PETA to Kids: Would You ‘Eat Your Dog’ For Thanksgiving?




10 to one everyone at Pita is a liberal.


PETA, the animal rights organization that thrives on over-the-top controversial ad campaigns, is now inviting children to consider that eating a turkey on Thanksgiving is the same as dining on your dog. Why? Because only liberals can think like this.

If a conservative chooses not to eat meat that is their choice and they go about their business. When a liberal chooses not to eat meat they make it their business to impose their beliefs on everyone else. That is the essence of liberals and the absurdity of their existence.

Wife of America's First Idiot is also an idiot





A story you have to read to believe





On a tip from Keith Grant


WAKE UP AMERICA


In God we Trust,

Americas moms for soldiers

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'


This one is way too shocking for any additional comment..scroll down..

so few will see this before voting..it's not going to be on t.v..

Okay…I’ve HAD it….REALLY had it with Michelle Obama.


Her pronouncement years ago of being proud for the first time in her adult life of her country PALES in comparison to what she said during a 9-11 commemoration over the weekend.
This anti American socialist blathering FOOL has gone WAY too far.

There she sat on Barack’s right side as bagpipers played and an honor guard folded an American Flag. You know how it’s done… with reverence and respect, folded precisely and crisply… honored. It was during that moment that our nations “First Lady” leaned to her husband’s ears and asked the question that should set your TEETH on fire!

“All of this for a damned flag?”

When Barack nodded, she sat back and gave a look of disgust. There is no audio but you can clearly read her lips (An expert lipreader verified this). HE doesn’t show the least bit of surprise at her question!!
See the video by clicking here!





“All of this for a damned flag?”

YES, ALL OF THIS FOR A FLAG!

This woman is beneath contempt and in NO WAY worthy of the title she currently holds!!

“All of this for a damned flag?”

Michelle Obama has NO IDEA what that “DAMNED FLAG” is or what it stands for…NOT A CLUE!!!
That flag… the stars and stripes to her must be nothing more than an old rag… just a pieces of cloth sewn together and not worth the consideration of a dust cloth.

That flag IS the representation of the GREATEST NATION ON EARTH. That flag flies in honor of those who protect this nation with their lives. It stands as a symbol of freedom and justice in this world. It protects our liberty and our rights. Each star represents an individual state and each stripe one of the 13 original colonies.

What irks me most is that he nods in agreement to her statement - we need to remember this on election day.



Aftermath to this story.


I can't quite make out precisely what she is saying but judging by what she's said in the past, and the look on her face, I would not be surprised. Whatever it is he nods his head in agreement. I hate them both, and while they have never shown any respect for America or the flag this story is truly astounding even for them. He will take his rightful place in the history books as the worst president we ever had... bar none! 

Another case in point.

A hint of disgust in this one too?

As any American knows, we place our right hand over
our heart when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance or
stand when addressing the US flag.
And for anyone who thinks this may be a mirror-image
picture, please note the wedding rings on the ring
fingers of their LEFT HANDS and the RIGHT side of the
"Messiah's" suit coat where the buttons are.
Are these two morons that clueless or is this a
deliberate slight against America?
You decide.

Liberal vs Conservative



On a tip from my brother Gary







I think this gently explains the difference in thinking between people with opposite outlooks. Take it how you want.....

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs.

The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey doing?"

She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over."

Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, "That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair! I've worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!"

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the conservative side of the fence."

If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.
If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him..

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.
A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and Jesus silenced. 

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it..
A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh.
A liberal will delete it because he's "offended."

MF Global...aptly named






Corzine... doing for MF Global what he did for New Jersey.

MF Global, the troubled New York-based securities firm, broke rules requiring it to keep clients' money and its own funds in separate accounts, the head of the Chicago Mercantile exchange says.

CME Group Inc. CEO Craig Donohue said Tuesday MF Global was "not in compliance" with requirements set by his company and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, its key regulator.

"While we are unable to determine the precise scope of the firm's violation at this time, we are investigating the circumstances of the firm's failure," Donohue said.
Also on Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI plans to look into questions about whether money is missing from client accounts, and if so, whether that constitutes a crime.

The newspaper did not identify its source.MF Global filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday.Regulators said they have discovered money is missing from some of the firm's customer accounts.

Jon Corzine, a former New Jersey governor, chief of Goldman Sachs and major fundraiser for U.S. President Barack Obama, leads MF Global.

Corzine has helped raised at least $500,000 for Obama's re-election campaign since April.

Corzine prompted MF Global to make more trades for the company's own profits, a practice known as proprietary trading. Some of that trading was conducted on the CME.

He pushed for the $6.3 billion US bet on debt issued by Italy, Spain and other European nations with troubled economies that ultimately doomed the company.
Companies regulated by the CFTC must account for clients' money and investments separately from money and investments belonging to the company.

The CFTC said in September that MF Global was overvaluing some of its European debt investments. It required the company to raise more cash, according to court papers filed on Monday.

MF Global reported its biggest-ever quarterly loss last week, mainly because of losses on proprietary trading.

Credit rating agencies downgraded the company's bonds to junk status, and business partners demanded that it put up more cash to guarantee its trades. The result was a severe cash crunch that forced MF Global into bankruptcy court.

Debt from many European nations has lost value in recent months because bond investors fear one or more countries might default.

On Monday, the New York Federal Reserve said it suspended MF Global from doing new business as a primary dealer.

Primary dealers are companies considered financially secure enough to sell US government debt on behalf of the Federal Reserve.

Money Making Monopoly





1. Red light cameras have pissed me off from the word go. Talk about Big Brother.

2. The government counties claim safety concerns. Bullshit. They are a insidious tax. Our tax dollars used to invade our own privacy, and the local governments make more money from them then a Vegas slot machine.


To put things in proper perspective, I was never issued a ticket from a red light camera. That is not to say I haven't received my fair share of tickets.


Read the story below. Red light cameras are nothing but one big f------scam!






Red-light traffic camera deals under scrutiny


Local governments hungry for revenue are signing contracts with red-light camera companies that put profit over traffic safety, according to a new study by a national public interest advocacy group.

Some contracts restrict police from doing things like lengthening the yellow signal and leave taxpayers holding the bag if the contracts are terminated early, says the report from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, the federation of state public interest research groups.

"The most problematic contracts require cities to share revenue with the camera vendor on a per-ticket basis or through other formulas as a percentage of revenue," the group says. "In other words, the more tickets a camera system issues, the more profit the vendor collects."

Occupy Wall Street protester?


"It just creates this really broad incentive to fine as many people as you can," says Phineas Baxandall, a co-author of the report. "That's not a good safety model."
About 700 communities in about half the states have deals with for-profit companies to install camera systems. The trend has been accelerated during the recession as local governments seek revenue that can help them avert laying off teachers, firefighters and police officers, the report says.

The deals "sometimes prevent local governments from acting in the best interests of their citizens, especially when the terms of the deal prioritize delivering profits for the shareholders or owners of the private firm," the report says. When local governments privatize traffic enforcement, they usually retain some role. Some contracts, though, limit government powers to set and enforce traffic regulations.

Yellow-light duration, for example, has long been a contentious point in the red-light camera debate.Lengthening a yellow signal gives drivers more time to react to a signal change, thus reducing the number of red-light violations.

"However, some contracts potentially impose financial penalties on the city if traffic engineers extend the length of the yellow light at intersections, which would reduce the number of tickets the systems can issue," the report says.

Anne McCartt, senior vice president for research at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and a proponent of automated enforcement, says cameras "are a highly effective way to reduce red-light running and reduce crashes, especially serious crashes, at intersections. … The most effective program would be one where no tickets would be issued because no one is running a red light."

The privatized traffic law enforcement industry "has amassed significant political clout that it uses to shape traffic safety nationwide," according to the report, which says vendors aggressively lobby to expand camera use. "In 2011, camera vendors employed nearly 40 lobbyists in Florida, whose agenda included killing a bill that would have required municipalities to adopt longer yellow-light times to increase intersection safety," the report says.

"This report is going to open a whole new, robust dialogue about how we should both provide public safety by using photo enforcement and about how it should be managed to protect the public interest," says Leslie Blakey, executive director of the National Campaign to Stop Red Light Running, an advocacy group initially funded by the photo enforcement industry.
