Obama campaign in North Carolina Sunday

The Democratic presidential campaign was in the Tar Heel state yesterday. Barack Obama spoke to thousands of supporters who filled a high school football stadium in Asheville. He blamed Republican rival John McCain and President Bush for "disastrous" economic policies. Obama hit McCain on Sunday on the economy and health care, trying to gain an advantage as the campaign enters its final month. McCain has increased his presence in North Carolina, which has not gone to the Democrats in 32 years.

That's what were are up against

Conservatives and Repubs these Bush hating Osambo lovers have been edcuated/brainwashed by the socialists who have invaded our schools, local/state governments, boards of charities/foundations, etc. Ayers, Farakon, Wright, Obama and the other 60's Marxist/Socialists learned not to confront us head on but to get themselves into all of our governmental/public/private affairs just be good quiet neighbors all the while they are planning your end. That is the problem with more government, it gets so big and unmanageable we end up supporting and financing our own demise. The founding fathers knew this but the pols have sold us out for power that is not good in for the country. You OsambobinBidenites, if you have any intellectual honesty left in you, should do some basic reading of the horrors of socialism, like 1984, Animal Farm and even Atlas Shrugged. I doubt you will read any of these but it might save your children and family from a horrible existence going forward. The MSM is already bought in and ready to go. McCain and Plain need to begin a massive FBI investigation into the 60's radicals and socialist and find out were, what and who they are invovled with. This real state security. Makes me wonder why the Dems went ballistic over AJ Gonzales when they did? After all firing Assist AJ's is not a illegal or uncommon. No Obama Socialist Ever This Socialist plan must be stopped.

Obama and The Second Amendment

Fellow Sportsman, Hello, my name is Rich Pearson and I have been active in the firearm rights movement for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, I have served in the Illinois state capitol as the chief lobbyist for the Illinois State Rifle Association. I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obama’s attitudes toward guns and gun owners better than anyone. The truth be told, in all my years in the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than Barack Obama. Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners and forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month. Without a doubt, Barack Obama has proven himself to be an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family. Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner? And speaking of friends, you can always tell a person by the company they keep. Obama counts among his friends the Rev. Michael Pfleger - a renegade Chicago priest who has openly called for the murder of gun shop owners and pro-gun legislators. Then there is his buddy Richard Daley, the mayor of Chicago who has declared that if it were up to him, nobody would be allowed to own a gun. And let’s not forget Obama’s pal George Soros - the guy who has pumped millions of dollars into the UN’s international effort to disarm law-abiding citizens. Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other people’s money to fund his campaign to take your guns away from you. While a board member of the leftist Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center. Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner? By now, I’m sure that many of you have received mailings from an organization called “American Hunters and Shooters Association(AHSA)” talking about what a swell fellow Obama is and how he honors the 2nd Amendment and how you will never have to worry about Obama coming to take your guns. Let me make it perfectly clear - everything the AHSA says about Obama is pure hogwash. The AHSA is headed by a group of left-wing elitists who subscribe to the British view of hunting and shooting. That is, a state of affairs where hunting and shooting are reserved for the wealthy upper-crust who can afford guided hunts on exclusive private reserves. The AHSA is not your friend, never will be. In closing, I’d like to remind you that I’m a guy who has actually gone nose to nose with Obama on gun rights issues. The Obama I know cannot even begin to identify with this nation’s outdoor traditions. The Obama I know sees you, the law abiding gun owner, as nothing but a low-class lummox who is easily swayed by the flash of a smile and a ration of rosy rhetoric. The Obama I know is a stony-faced liar who has honed his skill at getting what he wants - so long as people are willing to give it to him. That’s the Barack Obama I know. Sincerely, (original signed) Richard A. Pearson Executive Director Illinois State Rifle Association


What good is it going to do to reduce health care and then raise taxes on businesses. Businesses WON'T pay this tax. WE WILL! Businesses WILL raise the price of products they sell and pass the tax onto US. When you buy that box of cereal, the cost will be higher. When your kids need a new pair of shoes, the cost will be higher. When you pay your light bill, the cost will be higher. What little cut you may receive in health coverage, you will more than pay in higher taxes. The sad thing is, people are buying this lie. DEMOCRATS KNOW how the economy WILL work. THEY KNOW COMPANIES WILL pass this tax on to consumers. THEY KNOW they can say "they" won't raise taxes on the middle class, but THEY ALSO KNOW COMPANIES WILL pass it along so THEY WON'T HAVE TOO!! This is deceit at it's finest! How sad... Americans will fall for anything.


if i worked for the government i'd rather have a bag of snakes turned loose in my office than to have this idiot in the white house. either way its a lose lose situation. vote john mccain president. at least he believes in the american way.

what american way is that?

what american way is that? taxing health care, sending our jobs overseas, or suppressing women's rights? which 'american way' are you referring to? our country is in dire need of someone with a new outlook on how we need to relate to the world. i feel that obama can offer a new face to our friends and enemies overseas and they will resond positively to our choice. it will be a powerful message to the world that we are evolving as a nation, and not afraid of taking a step forward in order to stive for improvements. mccain can do none of these things for us. he can only offer more of what is wrong. we cannot allow that to happen - and don't EVEN get me started on palin!

teacher and the american way

whats the matter, you sounded like you had a real voice to be heard, you didn't take offence in the responce your comment received did you? or was it that you had a moment of clairity what ever the reason i'm glad that one more tree hugger has been rendered speachless


What is it that you teach? Roll over and play dead? Do you actually beleive that by caressing the egos of the leaders of the world is going to heal all evil? There are only so many times that we as Americans are willing to turn the other cheek, flash a toothy grin and say that I forgive you. Rhetoric and charisma...that is all Obama has to offer. It is apparent that you know nothing about our present tax code or you would realize that currently employers that provide health care for employees receive a tax deduction (not the employee)on there corporate income tax. Under the McCain plan, eliminating this would give the responsibility (and the ability)for finding the best plan back to the american worker creating true competition in the helth care market. Maybe then folks could join a plan with a larger risk pool and be able to choose the coverage that is right for them instead of the one chosen by their employer (or the government) because it is the cheapest. PLease adress how you think that McCain would be suppressing womens' rights... Oh, you mean abortion rights, why didn't you just come out and say it? No matter how you feel on the issue of abortion that is not women's rights.It is the abortion issue and should be kept completely seperate from women's rights issues. The American way... the live freely as we choose, in the pursuit of happiness. Whatever happiness that may be, the basic rights given to us to pursue it without unneccessary interference from the government. So Mr. Obama and his plan to create this utopian society where no one is poor and no one is rich is doomed to fail. I for one will not tolerate further interference in my pursuit of happiness by the government OF the people and BY the people.

american way

supressing womens rights oh,boy am i glad your teaching the next generation go ahead start on palin what, dose it bother you that she stands for what she belives in . or that she don't stand for your tree huggin bunny *&%&***ing libral give away the future belifes you need better arguments than that. why don't you tell the truth you probably have below average moral standards and need to keep your options open

If you are really a teacher,

If you are really a teacher, I'd have thought that you would know how to check facts. I guess that skill has gone the way of your spelling, punctuation, logic, etc. It's clear you are getting your talking points from democrat television ads. BTW, why do you care so much what the rest of the world thinks? They'll hate us (and yet try so hard to be like us) no matter who wins. Difference is they'll soon be too busy with their own failing economies to do much about it.

You're a teacher?

...yet you're too lazy to use the shift key and capitalize when appropriate? No wonder today's kids are idiots. Idiocy is probably why you don't understand that "change" doesn't have to be good. It can be very, very bad. As the old saying goes, "Out of the frying pan and into the fire." Just wait until your Socialist messiah undoes all the good that Reagan and Clinton did, and we wind up with a new welfare state funded by punitive taxation of the hard-working and successful.

Hey Teacher, I brought my PEN-CIL

HAHAHAHA - You SOOOOOOOO got called out! Obviously you aren't a history teacher either or you'd know the US Constitution and Bill of Rights doesn't guarantee healthcare, a place to live, a car, cable television, internet service, or anything along those lines. Crack open a history book and see what the United States of America did for the PLANET about 60-some odd years ago. I'm referring to World War II. If there even is a Planet Earth 10 years from now, $100 says history will judge W as taking the fight to the enemy and having kept us safe. Because the French like Borat, tells me he ain't the guy I want to depend on in a pinch. I hope and pray all you Kumbaya Liberals are right. Once Borat Uday Hussein Osama (Uday was Saddam's son) gets all the wealth spread around, maybe I can get a new boat and some nice new golf clubs. Afterall, I think that's guaranteed in the 293rd Amendment. Oh, and "Sister Sarah" has more executive experience than Borat or Sloppy Joe. Both of them are just legislators, which means they are all talk and no action. It takes about a hundred of them to pour water out of a boot. But hey, Borat at least votes "Present" on the important stuff. What a dumb alpha sierra sierra. Anyone want to help finish this statement? "Those who can, do. Those who can't, ........"
