Investor's Business Daily has a short article on the cause of the economic mess in which we currently find ourselves...
'Crony' Capitalism Is Root Cause Of Fannie And Freddie Troubles
There are plenty of guilty parties named. One that pops out at me is former Clinton Justice Department official Jamie Gorelick. Remember her? She was instrumental in America's inability to connect-the-dots when it came to fighting terrorism because the CIA and the FBI were stopped from sharing information.
Big mistake number one from Gorelick...
And now we hear about big mistake number two from Gorelick, namely she took $75 million from the Fannie-Freddie piggy bank.
Sometimes I wonder if these liberals are just stupid or if they are out to destroy this country.
In any event, isn't it past time the guilty parties be held accountable for their misdeeds?

Let me get this straight, first a fallen soldier's mother asks Obama to wear her son's name on a hero bracelet.
Then she asks the Obama campaign to stop using her son's name on the stump and asks that Obama not wear the bracelet anymore at any of his public appearances.
Now she says she is "ecstatic" that Obama mentioned her son's hero bracelet during Friday's debate.
That's Obama voter logic for you.

Israel Unleashes First 'Skunk Bomb'
"The foul-smelling liquid squirted by angry or frightened skunks at their victims was analyzed by Israeli defence scientists and a synthetic version created for use in a weapon they call the "skunk bomb". Fired with great care, and from a respectable range, it is designed to force civilian protesters to disperse."
I wonder just how effective this weapon will prove in the future. I mean, if you used it against Mahmoud Amadinejad, how would he know the difference?

Biden holding what we hope is a history book...
Biden Garbles Depression History
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the princes of greed," Biden told Couric. "He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
Did Couric catch the gaffes and let them slide or is she in dire need of a history lesson herself?

Largest Known Prime Number Found
The Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search, a cooperative computing project, helps find a prime that has nearly 13 million digits.
I can't do it justice with the fonts available, but it is the number 2 to the power of 43,112,609, minus 1.
Simply speaking 2 to the nth power minus 1.
Of course, it won't be long before someone finds a bigger one so enjoy it while you can.
How The Democrats Created The Financial Crisis
If you're in a hurry, here's the gist:
Once upon a time, (actually it was early 2005), and for the first time in history, a serious Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reform bill was passed by the Senate Banking Committee and it would have required the companies to eliminate their investments in risky assets.
Had that bill become law, then the world today would be different.
But the bill didn't become law, for a simple reason:
Democrats opposed it on a party-line vote in the committee, signaling that this would be a partisan issue. Republicans, tied in knots by the tight Democratic opposition, couldn't even get the Senate to vote on the matter.
Peter J. Wallison wrote at the time: "It is a classic case of socializing the risk while privatizing the profit."
Typical liberal non-think...
Here's my favorite part:
"Oh, and there is one little footnote to the story that's worth keeping in mind while Democrats point fingers between now and Nov. 4: Senator John McCain was one of the three cosponsors of S.190 , the bill that would have averted this mess."
Vote McCain/Palin in 2008
It's a start.
Then, let's vote out the liberals wherever we find them just as soon as we can.

From American Thinker comes a thought provoking, albeit depressing, article by William Staneski...
From National Review comes a thought-provoking and inspiring article by Bill Whittle...
The Undefended City
Fight the liberal drumbeat!
Now is not the time for doom and gloom, but for action. America is worth defending.
Vote McCain/Palin in 2008.
It's a start.

As if we needed it, here's further proof that NObama is all talk and no action.
Obama Pays Women Only 78 Percent of What He Pays Men
The first paragraph says it all:
" While Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has produced a television ad criticizing Sen. John McCain’s position on equal pay for women and pointing out that women in America are paid only 77 cents on the dollar compared to men, Obama pays his own female Senate staffers, on average, only 78 percent of what he pays male staffers."
And NOW still supports him.
Bwa ha ha ha ha.
You can't make up this stuff.

On Monday Amir Taheri reported... Obama Tried To Stall GIs Iraq Withdrawal
Today, Taheri reports... Obama Objects But The
Evidence Says I'm Right
and the clincher... Obama-Biden Reservations Confirmed
In my book, this isn't only the most presumptuous act I've seen from Nobama to date, but if it isn't considered treason, it should be. Where does he get off going to Iraq presuming to speak as our leader?
Don't measure the curtains at the White House yet Nobama... a funny thing might happen on the way to your coronation.
No it's not Friday yet, but I couldn't resist this story...
Lost Cat Returned Home After Nine Years
Dixie, a 15-year-old ginger (calico or tortoiseshell in USA) cat, disappeared in
I guess there's hope that our runaway cat, Psyche , will one day come home.

Jonah Goldberg has some interesting comments about the Obama campaign's new ad mocking John McCain for not using a computer.
Goldberg concludes that the Obama campaign must be GOOGLE-challenged because they didn't bother to find out why.
Wondering No More
McCain can't comb his hair, tie his shoes, or throw a baseball either, but he'll still make a better president than Obama.
This was dumb.
The implosion of the Obama campaign continues...

THE CAPED CUSS-ADER: COMIC'S PROFANITY BLUNDER
"DC Comics is asking stores around the country to destroy tens of thousands of copies of a new Batman comic book because of a printing error that revealed a slew of obscenities.
The S- and F-words were supposed to be blacked out, but two shades of black were used, and the expletives are clearly legible, as are the thugs' A- and F-words - and even a number of C-bombs."
Remember when comics were for kids?

I posted this two years ago...
"Today, as I am flooded with images of that fateful day five years ago, my anger rages not only at the barbaric islamofascists, but also against those dim-witted liberals that enable the side of the terrorists with their PC politics, and the gutlessness of cut-and run policies in the face of this global threat.
Until these liberals stand with us against terror, I refuse to call them anything but traitors to America".
With the possibility of an Obama bin Biden administration, my words are even more relevant today.

Melanie Phillips provides the best article I have read about Obama's days as a community activist and his unsavory connections to Alinsky, ACORN, and Gamaliel.
Revolution You Can Believe In
This is an eyepopper!
I guess you can put lipstick on a community activist, but it's still a community activist.
Keep talking, Nobama.

Russell Brand Calls George Bush A 'retard' At MTV Awards
Who is this Brit retard calling a retard and why is he telling Americans how to vote?
Oh, I see... another friend of Obama.

MSNBC Shake-up: Olbermann And Matthews No Longer Anchoring
I'm of two minds about this. Sure, both Olbermann & Matthews were wholly unsuited for unbiased reporting of the news, but I'm sure going to miss their loony antics. I would channel surf over to MSNBC just for the comedic hijinks.
BTW if you want comedy, read the comments to this article. Some of them are hilarious.

Venezuela To Host Russia Navy Exercise In Caribbean
The Red menace is ramping up. Ask yourself whether you want a president who will beat them or join them?

I saw this on Drudge. According to a report from Denverpost.com, the DNC trashed 12,000 American flags and they were rescued for use in the Republican convention.
Does anyone know if this is true? It's not easy, but I'm going to withhold judgement until I can verify it.
No, Sarah Palin is not some kind of ice hobbit as Wonkette mused in her blog...
It's about time someone collated the lies being told about Palin and set the record straight. Luckily I ran across the following via Lucianne.com:

This photo sent Mr. Cube's heart into near palpitations because he so loves a woman who knows her weapons...
...but Obama has much to fear when it comes to Sarah Palin's qualifications and her ability to give a speech.
Apparently, Rich Lowry agrees...

US Weekly stepped into a political mine field with their cover story about GOP VP pick, Sarah Palin...
Babies, Lies, & Scandal
By this morning, I saw 2,440 comments calling for everything from cancellation of their subscriptions to boycott of stores that sell the trashy tabloid.
I hope that Sarah Palin shrugs off these unfair attacks and rises up to the occasion and gives the speech of her life tonight.

Obama's Years At Columbia Are A Mystery: He Graduated Without Honors
Why doesn't this surprise me.
Maybe BO will release the records of his murky past when John F. Kerry releases his war records.
