Does anyone know if we won the war in Iraq? I haven't heard anything from the media.

Bernie...You Are Sooooo Right!

The True (and Pathetic) Story

of the Torrid Romance Between
Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media

True...? You bet your ass!

The question is... how long will the media be able to prop this guy up?

I was in my local supermarket the other day. For some reason I walked down the magazine aisle. I never walk down that aisle. Why? There is no food. Don't ask what I was doing in that aisle but there I was. Surrounding me were dozens of publications with BHO on the cover. I was stunned at the number. I swear half of them must have had his picture on the cover.

When I finished shopping I stood in line at the check out counter. My turn came and I began emptying my cart and putting my stuff on the counter. As I was doing this I looked up to see M&M's on the display rack. No not the candy. Michelle and the Messiah. There they were. Plastered on the cover of just about every tabloid. Brad and Angelina looked so alone I almost felt sorry for them.

After I got home and put everything away, I sat down and turned on the TV. Some guy was trying to sell me an Obama plate for $19.95. Somehow, listening to the guy, I got the feeling Obama and Abraham Lincoln were related. You know, like Arrr..nold and Devito. Twins. He said, "But wait...if you act now we'll send you two sets. That's right.. two sets for $19.95...but you have to act now!"


Gitmo to be closed down
Unparalleled spending going up
Throwing good money after bad
Cutting money to the military to look good
Market in free-fall
Taxes going up
Deductions going away

Hope and change, its not. Tax and spend, it is. Same shit. Different face.

This slobbering love affair is already beginning to show chinks in its armour... degrading as I write this... headed south... down the path... the torrid romance turning into the Saga of OJ & Nicole.

Back On Uncle Sam's Plantation

By Star Parker

Six years ago I wrote a book called Uncle Sam's Plantation. I wrote the book
To tell my own story of what I saw living inside the
welfare state and my
own transformation out of it.

I said in that book that indeed there are two Americas -- a poor America on
socialism and a wealthy America on capitalism.

I talked about government programs like Temporary Assistance for Needy
Families (TANF), Job Opportunities and
Basic Skills Training (JOBS),
Emergency Assistance to Needy Families with Children (EANF),
Section 8 Housing, and Food Stamps.

A vast sea of perhaps well-intentioned government programs, all initially
set into motion in the 1960s, that were going to lift the nation's poor out
of poverty.

A benevolent
Uncle Sam welcomed mostly poor black Americans onto the
government plantation.

Those who accepted the invitation switched mindsets
from "How do I take care of myself?" to "What do I have to do to stay on the

Instead of solving
economic problems, government welfare socialism created
monstrous moral and spiritual problems -- the kind of problems that are
inevitable when individuals turn responsibility for their lives over to

The legacy of American socialism is our blighted
inner cities, dysfunctional inner city schools, and broken black families.

Through God's grace, I found my way out. It was then that I understood what
freedom meant and how great this country is.

I had the privilege of working on
welfare reform in 1996, passed by a Republican Congress and signed 50 percent.

I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out of our poor black
communities and replacing it with wealth-producing
American capitalism.

But, incredibly, we are going in the opposite direction.

Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich American on
capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming like poor America on

Uncle Sam has welcomed our banks onto the plantation and they have said,
"Thank you, Suh."

Now, instead of thinking about what creative things need to be done to serve
customers, they are thinking about what they have to tell Massah in order to
get their cash.

There is some kind of irony that this is all happening under our first black
president on the 200th anniversary of the birthday of
Abraham Lincoln.

Worse, socialism seems to be the element of our new young president. And
maybe even more troubling, our corporate executives seem happy to move onto
the plantation.

In an op-ed on the opinion page of the Washington Post, Mr.
Obama is clear
that the goal of his trillion dollar spending plan is much more than short
economic stimulus.

"This plan is more than a prescription for short-term spending -- it's a
strategy for America 's long-term growth and opportunity in areas such as
renewable energy, healthcare, and education."

Perhaps more incredibly, Obama seems to think that government taking over an
economy is a new idea. Or that massive growth in government can take place
"with unprecedented transparency and accountability."

Yes, sir, we heard it from
Jimmy Carter when he created the Department of Energy, the Synfuels Corporation, and the Department of Education.

Or how about the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 -- The
War on Poverty
President Johnson said "...does not merely expand old programs or
improve what is already being done. It charts a new course. It strikes at
the causes, not just the consequences of poverty."

Trillions of dollars later, black poverty is the same. But black families
are not, with triple the incidence of single-parent homes and out-of-wedlock

It's not complicated. Americans can accept
Barack Obama's invitation to move
onto the plantation. Or they can choose personal responsibility and freedom.

Does anyone really need to think about what the choice should be?
Great Mind....Great Face. What a woman!

AIG just posted the worst 4th quarter lost of any
American company in history. 62 Billion

They lost $460,000 per minute!!!

Q: How much money has the government given AIG?

A: On the brink of failure in September, AIG was bailed out when the government offered it an $85 billion loan during the ongoing credit crisis that saw Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. file for bankruptcy protection and Merrill Lynch & Co. get sold to Bank of America Corp.

Less than a month later, the insurance giant received an additional $37.8 billion loan from the Federal Reserve, and later was granted the ability to access up to an additional $20.9 billion under a new program where the Fed would buy commercial paper — short-term debt often used for day-to-day expenses — from the company.

In November, the U.S. government restructured its loans to AIG, giving the company about $150 billion in total as part of a rescue package to help the company remain in business amid the worsening credit crisis. That package replaced earlier loans after it became apparent the insurer needed more funds.

Update seconds after I posted.


Reporting from Washington — Federal officials tossed American International Group another financial lifeline today, providing up to $30 billion more to help the staggered insurance giant deal with a record $61.7 billion loss in the final three months of last year.

In this case alone, the American taxpayer is on the hook for $180 Billion to AIG.

This is only one company among dozens!
