McCain congratulated Obama for his nomination. It was a classy thing to do. The video and the response from the Obama campaign can be seen here: http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/08/obama-campaig-1.html. I hadn’t seen Obama’s response on TV. It’s easy to miss, as I record a lot and watch on weekends, so I could have missed it. So I went to Obama’s youtube channel, figuring they’d have it there. | Read More »
Sarah Palin is The One We Have Been Waiting For
Sarah Palin’s triumphant speech at the Republican National Convention left the Democrats and their media allies afraid, very afraid. The evening was also a triumph for Senator John McCain, the man who had selected her for the vice presidential nomination. Well done! I had the honor of meeting Governor Palin when I keynoted the 2006 Alaska Republican Convention. She is just as impressive in person | Read More »
Obama is NOT a Black American!
Did you notice Obama never even ONCE mentioned King in the speech or race or anything even remotely related to the struggle of the great black American’s? He can’t because he is NOT part of this. He is not a Black American! Excuse me!!! He is the son of a Kenyan elite PRINCE and a white momma. No Black American to be found in his | Read More »
Americans want positivity in the White House!
Dear Senator McCain, Recently I considered supporting your candidacy for president. I even once prayed for your success in this endeavor. However, after viewing last night’s acceptance speech, I am dismayed at the negativity expressed, both by you, Sen. McCain, and by the audience. What we need in the White House is tolerance, acceptance, positivity and gratitude, not put-downs. When someone gets involved in their | Read More »

This Editorial Brought to You By The People Who Invented Class, Race, and Sex Warfare
Paul Krugman wrote an editorial that basically expands on the ‘bitter religious gun-clinger’ argument, making the case that the GOP is running on the resentment politics of the Nixon era. Nevermind that the Democrats have been beating the gong of ‘change’ since 2006 and have brought nothing but high energy prices, a attempted rewrite of cultural values, and moonbeams in a jar. Nevermind that their | Read More »
Roots or Shoots
As I was reading my daily devotional, It’s story reminded me of the difference between Sen. Mccain and Sen. Obama. I really feel Sen.

Union leaders cancel parade
As stated on local news here in West Michigan some of the Union leadership took steps to cancel the Labor Day Parade through Grand Rapids. **Their decision was based on the loss of jobs here in Michigan and the leaders thought the money $30,000 could be better spent getting people to support Union friendly democrats. Well that shows just how much the Union leadership supports | Read More »
GOP Convention and Gustav, Damned if they do and Damned if they don’t
While I am glad that McCain picked a VP to energize the base and perhaps the female voting population, I can’t help but worry that hurricane Gustav could be the nail in the coffin. I would gladly like some optimism to counter-weight my pessimism. However, the facts are that the DNC rally gave Obama a pretty decent jump in the polls over McCain. While he | Read More »

When the Republicans nominated a Democrat for Vice President
Most history books written by Democrat professors downplay the fact that the Worst President Ever was a Democrat. Did the Democrats nominate him? No, he was the 1864 Republican nominee for vice president. Andrew Johnson – Andrew Jackson Johnson, to be precise – was the only southern Senator not to go with the Confederacy. For being strong on national security, this hardline Democrat was nominated | Read More »
