Our friend, 15-year-old Gabe Norstein came up with the most succinct summary of McCain:

"Multiple houses, multiple spouses, but can't use mouses."

[woops, made a mistake, Gabe is only 14 years old!]

The mind of a 15 year old is quite representative of Liberal thinking.

Simplistic, idealistic but unrealistic.

Ah, that wonderful age when food and clothing come from stores. No idea of the complex history and industry of modern day life in America.

As spoiled as we all are in this nation, I often find myself wondering what my grandfather's life was like that caused him to leave his land with his love to chase a dream. Leaving all he knew in Ballygar to risk his and my grandmother's life in crossing the Atlantic with only a dream of a life of prosperity.

19 and 17 they threw their lives to Fate. Two children in the view of many who left a life of no inheritance to travel to a land that offerred nothing but opportunity to have a house, some land and security.

I'm sure at 15 they thought that life would always be as it always was. A home, food and family. Little responsibility, even less understanding of the harsh reality that the future would deliver.

Simplistic, idealistic, but unrealistic.

When I was 18 I voted for Reagan. I believed he was for fiscal responsibility and the rule of law. I believed in Reaganomics. Look where THAT got us. At that age I was Simplistic, idealistic but unrealistic. I have to hand it to Mr. Norstein for being able to see past the bullshit at such a young age.

The land of Obama's father is rabidly pro Obama. Taking their cue from the Obama "Truth Squads", the Kenyan govt. will not allow criticism of the Obamasiah.

Officials scuttle WND reporter's news conference on investigation of Obamas links to Prime Minister Odinga who encouraged massacures of Christians.

When I was a Chef in New York City there was a waiter who I became friendly with that dealt large quatities of cocaine. I always thought he seemed like a nice guy. I'm so glad the authorities didn't arrest me for being friends with him.

Obama's "Truth Squads" might not want to arrest you if you use cocain but might consider some kind of sanction if you criticise the Obamasiah.

JIm said...

Speaking of cocaine, I beleive you would be safe with Obama, since he was a user and possibly a dealer in his youth.

"probably a dealer"??? An outrageous accusation. Hater.

JIm said...

There is a difference between probably and possibly. I don't hate but do distrust Obama.

1-This from a liberal Democrat:

In his 1996 memoir, "Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance," Obama wrote candidly about his high school-era drug use: "Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack, though."

Shaheen said Obama having been so open -- as opposed to then-Gov. George W. Bush, who refused to detail his past drug use during his 2000 presidential campaign -- will "open the door to further queries on the matter.

"It'll be, 'When was the last time? Did you ever give drugs to anyone? Did you sell them to anyone?'" Shaheen said. "There are so many openings for Republican dirty tricks. It's hard to overcome."

2-And from the Right - Libertarian Corsi in Obama Nation suggested he may have sold as well has used drugs.

If you voted for Reagan at 18, you missed all those 'duck and cover' drills at school.

When the bombs got big enough, the drill was changed to 'bend over and kiss your behind goodbye'.

How much was the end of the Cold War worth ?

Reagan may not have been perfect but he brought us a long way back from the Carter years.

Everyone's a little cranky today. Who can blame him.

JIm said...

I am noticing something strange. A couple of polls are showing the race tightening to within the margin of error. Maybe the race is not over yet.

JIm said...

I thought a non paritisan Global Warming undate was due. It is non partisan since both McCain and Obama are around the bend on this one.

A New Ice Age?
by Alan Caruba
Issue 117 - October 9, 2008

Scientists and laymen who follow the Ice Age cycles have been warning that, if not a full-fledged Ice Age, at the very least a Little Ice Age comparable to one that lasted from 1300 to around 1850 is on its way

"a report in DailyTech.com was not likely to get much attention, but it forecast a very cold world in the years to come. The Earth has already started to cool and scientists date the change from 1998.

Headlined, “Drop in solar activity has potential effect for climate on Earth”, the news is that, for the first time in 100 years, “an entire month has passed without a single visible sunspot being noted.” The author, Michael Asher, noted that “The event is significant as many climatologists now believe solar magnetic activity—which determines the number of sunspots—is an influencing factor for climate on Earth.”
