Joe Biden prediction poll

Posted by madcap on October 23, 2008

Cross Posted on my new blog www.thoughtsongod.com

“Mark my words, It will not be six
months before the world tests Barack Obama.”

Old Joe hit the nail on the head. Now Obama must spin out from under reality by claiming Joe was talking about McCain as well. McCain has been tested many times, Obama has not. Obama is being dishonest once again.

If a Republican had a history even close to that of Obama’s the media would hang them out to dry. Thank God for the New Media.

The Liberal Perspective – Or The World Viewed Through A Straw

Posted by madcap on October 22, 2008

I am moving to a new blog. See all my new posts at….

http://www.thoughtsongod.com

No matter what the issue, event or circumstance, the Liberal mind is incapable of grasping big pictures. It is a micro world view grown in the Petri dish we call the university. Today the university has lost sight of a true liberal education and is today producing specialists. Therefore, along with books, pencils and paper, the modern student is required to be well supplied with plenty of straws through which to examine closely the world around them.

Through this straw one sees the rights of man, while the responsibility that accompanies each of these rights escapes their field of vision. History always begins in the morning, and the events of the day occur in a vacuum, with no past reference.

If the Earth’s temperature rises one degree over the last one hundred years, it must be because of all the plastic bags, tin cans and Wal-mart. Only a “savior,” a god-man like Al Gore can rescue humanity from calamity. The eons of years prior to man’s arrival, with all the ebbs and flows of seasons, the destruction and catastrophes, are never seen through the straw.

It is through this straw one sees immigration, but misses the illegal part. It is through this straw one sees stem cell research, but bypasses the embryonic part. It is through this straw that Bush and Hitler, Gitmo and the gulags all appear to be one and the same.

If they see Pavlov, it must all be a bell. If they see Freud, it must all be sex. If they see Sagan, it must all be dust. If they see the New York Times, it must all be true. If they see god, it must all be themselves.

It is through this straw that war is never the answer, no matter what the question might be. Treason looks the same as patriotism, defeat the same as victory. Success is punished while failure is nurtured.

While the amount of information, and the ease of access to it has never been for man as it is today, if you view life through a straw, no high speed laptop will suffice to correct the vision problem in today’s world of the specialist. While we as men have gathered great quantities of information, so much that we had to create a cyber-space to store all of it, we still have lost much of our wisdom through the forces of historicism, relativism, positivism, and straw-ism.

The Liberal perspective is a narrow perspective. It is a shallow perspective. It is a young perspective, like a top 40 pop song, that is here today and gone tomorrow. Most important, it is a dangerous perspective, for it sees not the cliff it is about to walk over. It cannot see the canyon. It cannot see the forest nor the trees. It is a high-speed train rolling down the tracks of the regress express. All aboard and let it roll! Ding-ding…ding-ding…ding-ding…

Exactly what philosophy are the slogans “change” and “hope” tethered to?

Posted by madcap on October 22, 2008

I am moving to a new blog. See all my new posts at….

http://www.thoughtsongod.com

I have had more than one discussion with liberals at our local restaurant where their main points are “change” and “hope.” “All I know is that it’s time for a change” is the constant cadence from these deep thinking liberals. I often ask whether we should change our socks, or our underwear? I have not gotten any clear answer to this question any more than why they are voting for Obama.

I want an answer, I demand a clear, precise answer to my question; should we change our socks, or our underwear? Please liberals help me make a “choice.” Maybe it’s not a choice between the two, possibly we should change both our socks and underwear.

Maybe I’m just not smart enough to wrap my little mind around such a deep and profound political philosophy as “change.” Maybe I should watch Dancing With The Stars to help shed light on the deep mystery of “change.”

Or, just maybe, liberals are truly brain dead.

Biden admits Obama Presidency will invite attack

Posted by madcap on October 21, 2008

Cross Posted on my new blog www.thoughtsongod.com

Old Joe stepped in it again. Let’s see what happens. The sad thing is that Joe is correct. I wonder how many will die this time. Why people will vote for Obama over McCain is beyond comprehension.

“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.”

Obama’s Racism

Posted by madcap on October 16, 2008

Cross Posted on my new blog www.thoughtsongod.com

I find it strange that Obama has gotten such a pass when it comes to his anti-white and anti-American feelings. Just think if McCain started his political career in the living room of an old abortion clinic bomber, and attended a Neo-Nazi church for twenty years. I wonder what CNN would have to say about that?

From Dreams From My Father: ‘I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.’

From Dreams From My Father : ‘I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.’

Jeremiah Wright

From Dreams From My Father: ‘There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.’

From Dreams From My Father: ‘It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.’

From Dreams From My Father: ‘I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa , that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.’

From Audacity of Hope: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’

Is Barack Obama the Messiah?

This is a link to a blog that seriously considers the possibility! People are nuts.

“… a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany … and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama” – Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire.

New Obama’s Old Marxism

Posted by madcap on October 16, 2008

Cross Posted on my new blog www.thoughtsongod.com

“From each according to their ability, to each according to their need.”

All talking points aside, the bottom line is clear. If you believe in taking from the productive and redistributing their wealth to those who do not produce, then Obama is your man. If you believe that government should regulate every aspect of your life, then “Senator Government” is your man. Let’s stop with all the claims of Obama offering something new. It’s the same old dead philosophy in a new suit.

This is the same philosophy that got us in the current economic crisis. Give people houses even though they can not pay for them. Classic Marxism. While this philosophy might give some a warm fuzzy feeling, you would have to be intellectually illiterate to subscribe to it at this point in history. From each according to their ability, to each according to their need is not the philosophy that made this nation the world superpower that it is. Nor has this philosophy ever worked in the real world we live in.

If Obama wins, it is a clear sign that we as a nation have decayed in critical thinking skills beyond the point of return. Obama brings nothing new, nothing hopeful, and nothing “clean.”

Obama’s No Child Left Alive Agenda

Obama’s Abortion Extremism

by Robert George

Oct 14, 2008
Sen. Barack Obama’s views on life issues ranging from abortion to embryonic stem cell research mark him as not merely a pro-choice politician, but rather as the most extreme pro-abortion candidate to have ever run on a major party ticket.

Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate ever to seek the office of President of the United States. He is the most extreme pro-abortion member of the United States Senate. Indeed, he is the most extreme pro-abortion legislator ever to serve in either house of the United States Congress.
Yet there are Catholics and Evangelicals-even self-identified pro-life Catholics and Evangelicals – who aggressively promote Obama’s candidacy and even declare him the preferred candidate from the pro-life point of view.

What is going on here?

I have examined the arguments advanced by Obama’s self-identified pro-life supporters, and they are spectacularly weak. It is nearly unfathomable to me that those advancing them can honestly believe what they are saying. But before proving my claims about Obama’s abortion extremism, let me explain why I have described Obama as ”pro-abortion” rather than ”pro-choice.”

According to the standard argument for the distinction between these labels, nobody is pro-abortion. Everybody would prefer a world without abortions. After all, what woman would deliberately get pregnant just to have an abortion? But given the world as it is, sometimes women find themselves with unplanned pregnancies at times in their lives when having a baby would present significant problems for them. So even if abortion is not medically required, it should be permitted, made as widely available as possible and, when necessary, paid for with taxpayers’ money. Full Article

Obama talks about job Ayers gave him

Posted by madcap on October 15, 2008

Cross Posted on my new blog www.thoughtsongod.com

Amazing Video Found of Obama saying the job Ayers gave him is one of his major qualifications for political office. In this video he also calls Rev Meeks and Father Pfleger friends. A must see.

The video also lays out the argument that Ayers gave an unqualified Obama the jobs that allowed Obama to buy his way into public office.
