A Film About Barack Obama
Of course they want to keep that one away from those who missed the original TV movie that showed the Clinton administration’s feckless handling of previous terrorist attacks against the U.S. and its interests. But the best one I’ve heard about is “An American Carol”, a Charles Dickensian slant on what would happen if liberal crackpot Michael Moore was visited by his ghosts, past, present, and future! And, since this movie comes from David Zucker, the maker of the classic comedy “Airplane”, you know it’s going to be a falling out of your seat raucous comedy! It’s about time that conservatives have a chance to see movies that rebut the Michael Moore filmmaking that is all that has come out of Hollywood because of the outrageous funding offered to liberal film makers by the likes of George Soros and the MoveOn.org types. Just in time, I say, for November, and for some in the film world to realize that there is an audience for conservatives as much as there is for liberals. Especially now! With that said, let’s get… right to it!
John Edwards’ lack of character is appalling and his lack of judgment is monumental, when one considers that this man came pretty darn close to being on the Democratic ticket this November. Just another politician, another Democrat, that proves that their bodies consist of feet of clay and their little heads do the thinking instead of their big ones, and yet another one that would never have come clean had they never been exposed by some good detectives out of the mainstream media. I could wretch.
Hmmm. According to Newsmax: “Record amounts of money from abroad are flowing into Barack Obama’s presidential campaign — and there is no easy way to determine if foreigners are making illegal donations. Through June, Democrat Obama received $2.8 million in donations from foreign sources, according to federal election records obtained by The Hill newspaper. That dwarfs the $381,809 that Republican rival John McCain received from abroad. It is also more than President Bush and John Kerry combined received in the 2004 presidential campaign. Bush took in $747,857 from foreign sources; Kerry got $550,834. According to federal laws, contributors to federal, state and local elections must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with green cards. But with many Americans living overseas and contributing to campaigns, making sure the donations are legal can be difficult. Foreigners often can get away with contributing to a campaign if they are willing to make false statements about their status.” Anyone checking to see just who these foreigners might be?
Uber-conservationist-in-name-only Al Gore left the engines idling with the air conditioning running on two Lincoln Town Cars and an SUV, as he gave a speech a short while back….yes, folks those same evil, gas guzzling, polluting SUVs that he has criticized the rest of us for owning. Al is something else. As he pockets millions selling us a bill of goods about the dangers of people-induced global warming while he pushes his inane carbon credits, while making excuses for the reasons he owns several huge homes and luxury toys, he continues to waste resources by behaving like the spoiled brat that he is. Hey, I’m all for enjoying the fruits of capitalism but I get sick of these people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.
According to Gwen Freeman on WTN’s Michael Del Giorno morning show, people are made up of feelers and thinkers. She has that right. Liberals are the touchy feely types who think that if we all just hug one another that we can reach the end of the rainbow together, while conservatives know common sense and hard work, coupled with tough decision making, rules the day in the long run. Remember that in November.
Newt Gingrich is right. Israel traded a savage terrorist for the bodies of two Israeli soldiers opening the door for further kidnappings for ransom. This just encourages these beasts to kidnap more Israelis, knowing that they can be used as bargaining tools to have their monstrous brethren released. I thought Israel was smarter than that.
Obama watch: Did you know that Barack Obama won his first election, to the Illinois State Senate, by engineering a plan to have a five-year incumbent, Alice Palmer, thrown off the ballot by having the required number of signatures to place her on the ballot disqualified for reasons such as one woman printing her signature instead of writing it in script? Nice guy. Looks like just another Chicago politician from the old school machine.
Random ramblings: I love this one. Obama: All sizzle, no steak….
The U.S. Senate and Caliofrnia’s Barbara Boxer, “bullied” Senator Tom Coburn, an obstetrician, for delivering poor women’s babies… Casey Anthony, sick of media whore parents and the coverage make stars of nobodies… Remember…just going to church doesn't make you a Christian anymore than standing in your garage makes you a car.
