Redistribution of Wealth

In a local restaurant my server had on a'Obama 08' tie, again I laughed
as he had given away his political preference--just imagine the coincidence.

When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside.

The server angrily stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $10 and told him to thank the server inside as I've decided he could use the money more.
The homeless guy was grateful.

At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he did earn even though the actual recipient deserved money more.

I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application.

Ex-CIA Expert: Obama Took Millions in Illegal Foreign Donations

A Newsmax investigation of Obama/Biden campaign contributors, undertaken in conjunction with a private investigative firm headed by a former CIA operations officer, has identified 118 donors who appear to lack U.S. citizenship.
Some of these “red flag” donors work for foreign governments; others have made public statements declaring that they are citizens of Cameroun, Nigeria, Pakistan, Canada, and other countries.

A Newsmax sampling of about 3,400 donors also found hundreds more who showed “yellow flags” such as not having used a Social Security number or a known U.S. address. Most U.S.-born citizens are issued Social Security numbers at birth or by the time they enter kindergarten.
Under federal law, only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may donate to federal political campaigns. It is illegal for the campaigns to accept money knowingly from foreign donors.
The McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill of 2002 placed new restrictions on political fundraising after the scandals of 1996, when the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign was exposed for having taken millions of dollars of unregulated soft money from donors with ties to Chinese military intelligence. But even with the new laws, it remains very difficult to identify with any precision foreign money if a campaign itself does not cooperate with the Federal Election Commission and perform its own due diligence.

Until very recently, the Obama campaign had no safeguards in its online fundraising Web site designed to weed out foreign donors. Instead, its operations appeared to be designed specifically to enhance the flow of illegal money.
The Newsmax investigation focused only on donors whose names the Obama campaign disclosed, which are available to public scrutiny through the Federal Election Commission Web site.

In addition to the donations the campaign has disclosed, however, it has taken an unprecedented $218 million from donors whose names it is keeping secret, according to FEC spokesman Robert Biersack.

That money came from individuals who in theory never passed the threshold of $200, the limit the FEC set for public disclosure of a donor’s name and place of residence, so there is no way of knowing how much foreign money could be included in that amount.
For example, hidden away amidst the unprecedented $150 million Obama claims to have raised from individual donors in September was more than $42 million raised from secret donors. These donations appear in the records as a single entry under the heading, “Donors, Unitemized.”

Newsmax retained the services of former CIA operations officer Frederick W. Rustmann Jr. and a team of international forensic accounting experts to comb through Obama’s donor list to identify those who apparently aren’t U.S. citizens or residents. Rustmann, a 24 year veteran field officer, operates CTC International Group Ltd., a West Palm Beach, Fla., firm that provides business intelligence services and analysis.
Using sophisticated Internet search tools, fee-based data bases, and other public records, CTC attempted to identify Social Security numbers and U.S. addresses connected to the Obama donors. Most of these donors gave obvious overseas addresses when they made their donations, but the Obama campaign had no security screen to detect them.
“Hillary and McCain demanded proof of citizenship of all their donors,” Rustmann said. “Obama did not, so he benefitted by receiving an enormous amount of money from foreign donors who wanted to influence the U.S. election process.”
Rustmann and his investigative team expressed “high suspicions” that 118 donors flagged as “red” were not U.S. citizens.

“That’s all we can say for certain, because it’s difficult to prove citizenship with no database that lists citizens,” Rustmann said.
Typical is Victor A. of Lagos, Nigeria, who gave $500 to the campaign in May. In the FEC database, his address is listed as Ikoyi, NA. But a closer look at the actual itemized receipts filed by the campaign shows that he declared his address as 9e Awori Street Dolphin Estate, Lagos, Nigeria.
That apparently slipped by the eagle eyes of the Obama campaign’s finance team.
A survey of the Obama donor base returns 8,794 donations from individuals who gave their state as “NA.” They included donors from Bangalore, India; London; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Lagos, Nigeria; and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Thousands more gave state abbreviations that, combined with the city addresses they listed, clearly referred to foreign countries. Examples include IT (Italy), FR (France), GR (Greece), NZ (New Zealand), JP (Japan), GA (Gaza).
Another 2,372 donors gave their state of residence as “ZZ,” with cities including Moscow, Barcelona, Beirut, London, Lausanne, Singapore, Hagatna, Gunma-Ken, Buelach, Shanghai, Geneva, Prague, Aichi-Gun, Kiev, Hong Kong, and others.
The Obama campaign claims that these donors with overseas addresses are Americans living abroad, but there is no way of knowing that for certain because the campaign has not systematically required proof of citizenship from overseas donors.
The pace of foreign donations and other questionable fundraising practices has increased during the past few weeks, even as Obama campaign spokesmen say they have closed loopholes on their Web site and changed the credit-card authorization procedures that have allowed such donations. The Federal Election Commission had flagged 16,639 potential foreign donations as of Oct. 21 that brought in $5,249,263.96 to the campaign.
Take the case of Jo Jacquet, who gave $23,065 to Obama in 23 separate contributions last month. CTC found three people with variations of the name “Jo Anna Jacquet” who had U.S. addresses and Social Security numbers. It is not clear whether this specific Obama donor is a U.S. citizen.

“Jo Jacquet” made all of her contributions on two days, alternating between $5 and $2,300 charges to a credit card.

On all of the donations, she gave her employer as “DFDFGDFG,” and her profession as “DFGDFGDFGHFGH.” None of this attracted the suspicions of the Obama campaign or of Chase Paymentech, the company that processes the Obama campaign’s credit card donations.

The FEC requested that the Obama campaign re-attribute or re-designate all of the money from “Jo Jacquet” that went beyond the $4,600 limit but did not require that it be refunded. Under campaign finance rules, the campaign can shift this money into the “Obama Victory” account, a joint fundraising committee with much higher individual limits that it operates with the Democratic National Committee.

One apparent reason for the unusual number of foreign donors who may not hold U.S. citizenship is the fact the Obama campaign turned off the security features most merchants demand for customers when doing online transactions, such as verifying the card number against the cardholder’s name and billing address.

Another major loophole is the apparent widespread use of gift cards, which notoriously have been used for money-laundering purposes, especially in places such as Russia and Ukraine, industry security analysts tell Newsmax.

Newsmax asked James Wester, a spokesman for Chase Paymentech, who was responsible for taking the unusual step of deactivating the Address Verification Service recommended by VISA USA on the Obama Web site. Such security features can be deactivated by the processing company, or at the request of the merchant, in this case, Obama for America.

Wester said that Paymentech was “not going to be issuing a statement at this time.”
VISA USA has a series of verification tools it recommends to online merchants to prevent online credit card fraud and to guarantee the security of personal credit-card information.
“Fraudsters have been known to test credit card numbers by making online donations to charitable organizations,” a credit-card industry insider told Newsmax, on condition of anonymity.

In fact, by operating as a “high-risk merchant,” the Obama campaign could put both its donors and Chase Paymentech at risk, he said.
“A legitimate online merchant or charity would call in the Secret Service or the FBI” if it saw the high fraud rates that have appeared on the Obama campaign Web site.

“If they are not taking basic security safeguards to prevent such obvious online fraud as you have found, then how can any donor have confidence that they will protect credit card information? But if cash flow is the name of the game, it doesn’t matter as long as they get the money up-front and get the job done. They can pay the fines later,” he added.

Following are a few of the individuals the Newsmax/CTC International investigation found of overseas donors. To demonstrate its compliance with FEC regulations, the Obama campaign should request proof that these individuals are, indeed, U.S. citizens;
Nasser Z. of 187 Blvd Bineau in Paris-France, “NA,” made seven donations totaling $785. CTC found no record indicating U.S. citizenship. But on Nasser’s personal blog, he states that he is of Algerian origin and lives between Paris and Dubai. He also notes that he is not registered to vote in the United States and hints that he may be an adviser to the Obama campaign on Arab relations.

Salem H. gave $200 to the campaign in March 2008, listing a London address. He said he worked as a salesman for “Anaka,” No information was found either on Haffar or his company indicating U.S. citizenship.

Essomba H. made 11 donations totaling $265. Essomba gave an address in Lyon, “NA,” and said he was unemployed but working for “Association,” the French equivalent of a community organizer. CTC found that Essomba actually worked for PDT Associates Afrikespace et Oyenga, which showed him as living in Lyon, France. His personal blog states, "I'm a Cameroonian living in France” and notes that he is not registered to vote.

Gedewon (or Gideon) G. made 32 donations totaling $1,095. Although he lists his employer as “Filtom Design Services” and his residence as Toronto, Canada, CTC could find no company with that name. Gedewon frequently posts blogs to a Web site for expatriate Eritreans, where he often promotes Obama.

Mahamane M. gave $500 to the campaign and listed his address as Niamey, the capitol of the central African state of Niger. He listed his occupation as managing director of C.N.U.T. Niger. The Public Transport Users Council, CNUT is affiliated with the prime minister’s office. In an interview, Mahamane said he is particularly interested in developing transportation resources that will help bring Niger’s extensive uranium resources to market.

Gilles M. lives in Zurich and claims to be “founder and senior consultant” of 4?ME (sic) Image Consulting. Gilles made three donations to the campaign for a total of $240.39. The campaign found him suspicious enough to return one of them in July, but kept the rest. Under FEC rules, that will bring Gilles back into the shadows, since his aggregate contributions now total less than $200.
Stamen S. of Sofia, Bulgaria, lists his profession as “Mployer” and his employer as "Employer." He has made ten donations totaling $170. CTC found no record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Francis B. . of La Creche, France, made three donations totaling $200. He is reported as being a medicine physician at Hospital-Niort and is listed. CTC found no verifiable record of U.S. citizenship.

Pedro M.,. who said he was a salesman for Intermundo in Prague, made two donations for a total of $900. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Sandeep M., . an investment manager at Clariden Leu, Kuesnacht, in Zurich, Switzerland, gave the maximum $2,300 allowed per election. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Marissa M., . a nurse living in Guatemala City, gave eight $25 donations. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Somine L. . declared that she worked at the French Ministry of Culture in Paris, and donated
$100. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.
Although CTC had no way of accurately evaluating the real amount of foreign donations based on the survey they did for Newsmax, Rustmann said he believe that the anecdotal evidence was clear.

“In my opinion, from what I have seen here, millions of dollars came from illegal donations, because the Obama campaign did little to vet the donors,” Rustmann said.
An earlier Newsmax estimate, based on the unusual occurrence of unrounded contributions, which fundraising experts attributed to foreign currency donations, concluded that as much as $63 million could have come from foreign sources.

A veteran investigator with the Criminal Investigative Division of the U.S. Secret Service told Newsmax on Monday that most of the donor fraud Newsmax has identified could fly under the radar of federal investigators, unless the feds received a complaint from a victim of identify fraud.

Identify fraud certainly appeared to be the case when it came to the $174,800 donated in September in the name of Manchester, Mo., resident, Mary T. Biskup. A retired insurance manager, Biksup told The Washington Post that she never gave the money to the Obama campaign, and had checked her credit-card statements and couldn’t find any trace of a charge to her account.

“We're not out a penny," Biskup said. "I gather that someone has hacked into something using other people's credit cards and putting my name on it."
The credit-card industry often covers up identify fraud, such as apparently occurred with Biskup. Credit-card companies would rather swallow losses and chargebacks than admit to consumers that criminals have cracked their security systems, insiders tell Newsmax.

FOX News Poll: McCain Closing Fast

By: Rick Pedraza

A FOX News poll released Thursday shows the race between presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama has tightened considerably, with Obama now leading McCain by just three points among likely voters, 47 percent to 44 percent.

Just last week, Obama held a 49 percent to 40 percent lead over his Republican rival, but changes in several swing states has narrowed the margin the Democratic junior senator from Illinois has over McCain.

Among likely voters who say they are independent, Obama has gone from a 9 point lead over McCain last week to just 5 percentage points.

"Independent voters have long been regarded as one of the keys to this race and these results may foreshadow a tightening in the battleground states where independents carry disproportionate weight," says Ernie Paicopolos, a principal of Opinion Dynamics Corporation.
In addition, among white Catholics, Obama has completely lost the 11-point edge he held over McCain last week to a split this week of 46 percent to 46 percent.

McCain also has considerably increased the support he receives from his own party over Obama. Fully 88 percent of Republicans now back McCain, up from 83 percent last week, while Obama’s 89 percent of support among Democrats is only slightly up from the 88 percent he was receiving last week.

Among his backers, 88 percent say they support Obama "strongly" and 12 percent "only somewhat." For McCain, 78 percent of his voters support him "strongly" and 22 percent "only somewhat."
Among those who have voted early, Obama leads 52 percent to 43 percent over McCain, and newly registered voters say they will come out for Obama by 54 percent to 38 percent.

Still Undecided?

Following the lead of Arties post about the USA's newest fighter, I thought this post would be appropriate.
The "Great Fraud" has run ads spouting about McCain not being able to use a computer implying that due to his age he is clueless about technology.The truth is John McCain cannot raise his arms normally due to the fact they were broken and not set correctly while he was a POW. I'd like to see the "Great Fraud" land a fighter on the deck of a carrier at night!

FIRST FA-22 FIGHTERS DELIVERED




These are Great In-flight Photos of the F/A-22 as the first Aircraft Delivery was being made to Langley AFB in Va. Langley is to be first Operational AFB for the F/A-22. It is a very beautiful AFB, located in a picturesque location, as you can see in these photos, near Norfolk and Hampton , Va. The Aircraft flying along with the F/A-22 in the last of these photos is the F-15, which will be replaced by the F/A-22 which is several times better than the F-15.In Actual In-flight (simulated) Combat Operations against the F-15, two F/A-22swere able to operate without detection while it went Head to Head against (8) F-15s. The F/A-22s scored Missile Hits (Kills) against all the F-15 Aircraft and the F/A-22s were never Detected by either the F-15s or Ground Based Radar. Maj. Gen. Rick Lewis said: 'The Raptor Operated Against All Adversaries with Virtual Impunity; Ground Based Systems Couldn't Engage and NO Adversary Aircraft Survived'!F/A-22-- America 's Most Advanced Fighter Aircraft for the 21st Century!!!!


They're a titanium and carbon fiber dagger. They're so advanced that if their on-board locator is switched off even our own satellites can lose track of them. They're the first military aircraft ever built that is equipped with a 'black-out button' What that means is this ...The best conditioned fighter pilots are capable of maintaining consciousness up to in the vicinity of 15+ G.

The Raptor is capable of making 22+ G turns. If someday an adversary builds a missile that is capable of catching up to one of these airplanes and a Raptor pilot sees that a strike is imminent, he hits the 'b.o.b.' and the airplane makes a virtual U-turn, leaving the missile to pass right on by.They know that in the process he'll temporarily lose consciousness, so the Raptor then automatically comes back to straight and level flight until he wakes back up.

Enjoy the Photos!

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN!!!!!!!!!!!DON'T MESS WITH US.

Glenn Beck: McCain Makes His Case



Glenn Beck: McCain Makes His Case
Audio Available:


October 28, 2008 - 13:17 ET
GLENN: Senator McCain.
SENATOR McCAIN: Glenn, how are you?
GLENN: I'm very good. How are you?
SENATOR McCAIN: Glad to talk to you again, Glenn.
GLENN: Are you tired yet? Are you ready for this to be over?
SENATOR McCAIN: No. It's so exciting. I was in Boxville, Pennsylvania last night. We had 5,000 people show up yelling, screaming. I'm telling you, it fires you up. I'm telling you, it just fires you up.
GLENN: I tell you, I feel fired up myself. I feel fired up with the -- I think America is finally addressing who Barack Obama really, truly is. This man is frightening with the tapes that have come out recently of him espousing Marxist ideas and talking about how the Constitution really needs to be changed.
SENATOR McCAIN: It's remarkable some of the things that he said, and I've got to -- listen, if there's one man that I'm grateful to in America today, it's Joe the plumber was standing out in his driveway.
GLENN: Oh, boy.
SENATOR McCAIN: Obama came through the neighborhood. I can't tell you the number of signs, Rose the florist, Ralph the landscaper, now all of these people show up carrying their signs. But it really is. It's the classic left liberal redistribution of the wealth. I mean, that's all it is. I mean, everybody's the -- yeah.
GLENN: Do you really think it is only that? I mean, this is so far beyond Ted Kennedy. When you have in 2001 Barack Obama saying that the Supreme Court, "Didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution when it comes to redistribution of wealth," we're not talking about the typical liberal. This is way beyond.
SENATOR McCAIN: Oh, yeah. It's very, very left. Very, very left. But, of course, that's why he's the most liberal senator in the Senate. That's why you continue -- that's why he opposed and won the filibuster, Alito and Roberts. I mean, every indication of his record is from the far left and again, it's scary -- no, it's not scary. It's just disturbing. Let me add nothing is scary in this world because I believe in America and I believe the fundamentals of America is, you know, that Americans will put checks and balances on anybody, but it is very, very disturbing to see that he has these kinds of views which have been tried in other countries and failed.
GLENN: Okay, let me be frightened for you. I have to tell you, Senator McCain, in my business I have never seen anything like what this media has done to you, your campaign, Sarah Palin, and allowed Barack Obama and Joe Biden to get away with. There was a serious reporter. She was an assistant to Peter Jennings. Barbara West in Orlando, she asked a serious question. They have blackballed her. I am wildly concerned about the Fairness Doctrine coming back in and our freedom of speech being crushed. How is that not a frightening idea?
SENATOR McCAIN: Well, if you re -- try to reinstate this Fairness Doctrine, it will kill Glenn Beck, it will kill every program that has any controversy associated with it. Willing there's no doubt about that. But how about this card check thing where he supports that a union organizer can come to a person's home and say, hey, I want to sign you up to a union, right, okay? They are going to take away the secret ballot for people as far as where they want to join unions. This is a far left agenda that's being pursued and so as far as the media's concerned, I think what was terrible is them pulling their ads. If you don't ask the right questions, we'll pull our ads and we'll deprive you of revenues. That's a remarkable problem.
GLENN: There's a story in The Wall Street Journal today about the labor unions. One study shows that the policies of the new deal extended the Great Depression. The other article today is about the Supreme Court. They decided in April of '36 to extend the Wagner Act which was pro union. They say that it went into another Depression within a Depression. The job levels went plummeting, started to disappear, unemployment moved back to 1931 levels. With this card check this is going to totally change the foundations of business and drive business into the ground, and Obama said in 2006, quote, "I owe these unions." He said this in the "Audacity of Hope". "When their leaders call, I will do my best to call them right away. I don't consider this corrupting in any way."
SENATOR McCAIN: Well, he's been frank about that and it's too bad that we haven't seen more of the actual facts. And again I have seen, especially on judges, Senator Obama take the most extreme positions and that, of course, as you say, Supreme Court decisions matter. The nominations are probably one of the most important parts of any presidency, and you tell me why Justice Alito and Justice Roberts should have been filibustered. And I've got to tell you, Glenn, I voted for Breyer and Ginsburg. I voted for them because President Clinton was elected and they were qualified. Ideologically I didn't agree with them but they were qualified. And in the case of Roberts and Alito, they were more than qualified and I was enthusiastic in both cases and he wanted to filibuster them on ideological grounds. Do you see what I mean?
GLENN: I do see what you mean. Tell me what you think this means. Yesterday we were listening to the tape of Barack Obama and he was talking about, you know, monetary equity and he was talking about the redistribution of wealth but then he went on. He also had a line, and I didn't -- I said, we've got to look into that. We looked into it overnight. He also said about justice in the courtroom needs to be looked at. He said in 2007 at a conference of Planned Parenthood, "We need someone who's got the heart, the empathy to recognize what it's like to be a young teenage mom. The empathy to understand what it's like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old, and that's the criteria by which I'll be selecting my judges." Will justice be no longer blind?
SENATOR McCAIN: You know, again that's so disturbing. We should have justices that judge, only render their decisions based on one principle alone and that principle and no other and that is the Constitution of the United States of America and that's what our founding fathers had in mind, and the whole basis of our philosophy of government is that we have empathy for all of our citizens. Our judges should interpret the Constitution of the United States strictly and that's -- when they haven't, that's when we've gotten in trouble. You cited cases back in the Thirties. I can cite you cases far more recently than that, my friend.
GLENN: Senator McCain, I hear people actually write me, say to me -- I have a sister who said to me, "You know what, what's the big deal with socialism. So what. He's socialist. Why is that bad." Could you please explain why socialism is bad?
SENATOR McCAIN: It doesn't work, number one. It's been tried many times. Second of all, redistributing the wealth creates disincentives to entrepreneurship, capitalism, small business, free enterprise. If people know that their hard earned -- the fruits of their hard earned labor are going to be taken from them and given to others, then they are obviously going to have disincentives to work. The fundamentals of the free enterprise system is that less government is the best government. Now, there are times for government, in emergencies, in wars and, you know, many other areas where we can interpret it, but the fact is that government should let free enterprise, small business and capitalism function and, of course, it has to be -- has to have regulation. Of course there has to be transparency. Of course Teddy Roosevelt was right where he said unbridled capitalism leads to corruption. But let's not take people's hard earned money that they worked to save and pass on to their children or build their businesses, let's not take it away from them and give it to others. That's -- socialism is antithetical to progress and job creation and wealth, progress for all of society.
GLENN: If Teddy Roosevelt was right, then wouldn't those who were involved in corruption, shouldn't they go to jail?
SENATOR McCAIN: Yes, yes.
GLENN: Okay. So really all you need is a law, or in our case right now shouldn't the people that were engaged in nefarious -- look, let me be real honest with you. Aren't the bigger culprits or at least the same size of culprits not just in Wall Street but also in Washington D.C., isn't Barney Frank, isn't Dodd also responsible for what we're going through right now in this kind of justice, if you will, that they wanted to serve by helping people, you know, get houses that they couldn't afford and expanding and expanding and expanding?
SENATOR McCAIN: Absolutely. And they need to be held accountable and I hope on November 4th would be the first time, although given the districts and states they represent, that's going to be hard. But over time there should be hearings and there should be investigations and there should be accountability. And again, I am not a libertarian, Glenn. I believe there's a role for government. I believe our regulatory agencies need to be strengthened and consolidated and we need transparency and we need all of those things. And we need accountability. But to say that you're going to take money from one group of Americans who have worked hard all their lives and saved and invested and done the things that we want everybody to do and taken and give it to another group of Americans is wrong, and it's harmful and it will damage our future and that's really the huge difference right now between myself and Senator Obama, and I think the American people are beginning to figure that out.
GLENN: Senator McCain, I hope this is -- this may be, because of the election, the last time that we speak. I hope this is not the last time we speak, sir.
SENATOR McCAIN: We'll be talking, my friend. You're too colorful.
GLENN: You know, you always say something -- I think he just slammed me. I think he just slammed me.
SENATOR McCAIN: No. You generate debate and discussion in America, and we need it. We need debate and discussion, whether you and I or others disagree, we need healthy, respectful debate and that's what you generate in America, Glenn, and I'm proud of ya.
GLENN: I appreciate that, sir. I will tell you that I hope that America can count on your support for the Fairness Doctrine, against the Fairness Doctrine for a long time.
SENATOR McCAIN: Not to worry.
GLENN: Thank you, sir.
SENATOR McCAIN: I have done that for a long time, my friend. Thank you, my friend. Talk to you soon. Bye.

Wisdom Beyond His Years !

From time to time we post articles and videos on Cubanazos which have nothing to do with Cuba politics because of their message. This is one of those which has a powerful message!

A remarkable phone call from a 12-yr old boy to the Houston radio station, KSBJ FM 89.3 . . . So profound, the station has it posted on their website.

Logan Henderson (12-years old at the time) is from a very small town in Nebraska. He listens to Christian radio station 89.3FM KSBJ which broadcasts from Houston, Texas via Sky Angel**. Logan called the radio station distraught because he had to take down a calf . The conversation is with the radio annoncer Mike Kankelfritz, Morning Show Host from KSBJ. Logan's words have wisdom beyond his years.

We Are Saved!

Sadly, it's looking more and more like these "clowns' will get in. There is no underestimating the stupidity of those who would elect a pretentious, unqualified, arrogant fraud to the presidency. Click above to see how bad it has become.

This will go down as the most significant election in US history. One way or the other.

We will see widespread revolt and violence if "O"bama loses. Screams of voter fraud and racism will ring through the smoke of riots.

And we will see the results of the first Socialist regime in American history. A system that has failed everywhere it's been implemented.

I don't know which will be worse.

October 25, 2008

HISTORY CONDENSED!

It is very sad to see the possible leader of this country, made by the media, elected by the media but not scrutinized by the same! If you are not concerned with Obamas vision for the US, you are not paying attention. Or you are a sympathizer of Socialism.

Whether you realize it or not, there is NO getting around it. McCain has many faults, but above all he is a proven, true patriot and his closet is not rattling with the type of skeletons trying to break out of Obamas while the media pushes with their backs against the door.

Have you considered a different viewpoint? Perhaps Obama is not attracted by the world views of the Ayers and the Wrights etc. MAYBE THEY ARE ATTRACTED TO OBAMAS!

Sad that many will condemn Michael Moore and Sean Penn for hating the U.S. and what it stands for, but will jump quickly on the same leftist bandwagon as Moore and Penn when they endorse a Socialist! We are in for a rude awakening I'm afraid.

Here is the explanation of the two parties in a nutshell.

Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

1. Liberals and

2. Conservatives.

Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.

Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that Conservatives provided.

Over the years, Conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.

Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are firemen, big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, mechanics, lumberjacks, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other Conservatives who want to work for a living.

Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when Conservative were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.

Here ends today's lesson in world history.

It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to this post, while a Conservative will simply laugh.

Money Laundering Scandal?

The "O" Bama/Acorn thing just will not go away! The link I provided above tells of an investigation which began back in August! Anyone hear of it from the MSM clowns? Not I. It's very enlightening and could blow "O" Bamas fraudulent candidacy right out of the water!

BETTER BE TOUGH IF YOU'RE GONNA BE STUPID!

I am continually (and depressingly) amazed at how stupid, idiotic, myopic and did I mention stupid, some people can be. How can ANYONE in their right mind overlook the associations Obama has had with Wright, Ayers, ACORN etc, and NOT realize that he is of the same mindset as they? I am not going to rehash, ala Hannity, all of these SCUMBAGS exploits, but I will give you a synopsis courtesy of www.whyareyouvoting.com. And for those of you that still don't get it, IDIOTS!

I Support McCain !!!

IT'S TIME TO VOTE FOR McCain PEOPLE !!!

URGENT...Your Help Is Needed !!!

As some of you might already know I recently had a daughter born on September 15th and I'm happy to report that everything is gone very well. My daughter Cristina Loren Ayala is 20 days old today.

I recieved an email from a very good friend who's niece was also recently born but has not been as fortunate as mine. I have had Cubanazos.com for about 2 years now and I have never asked for anything but, I am now asking you to help a little girl who really needs your help...Please read below and please make a donation to help this family. All your donations no matter how small will be greatly appreciated !!!


Thank You and May God Bless You and Yours !

_______________________________________________


The picture was taken in the middle of her health struggles and yet she still found the strength within to smile!

Dear Friends and Family,
As many of you already know, our beautiful little niece, Ruby Jolie Cardonne, has been gravelly ill. She was born on July 28, 2008 a beautiful and healthy cherub who filled our family with love and joy. However, at two weeks of age, Ruby developed what her doctor thought was colic. After breastfeeding, she would cry, get stiff and break out into cold sweats.
This went on for about two weeks without improvement until following a frightening downturn, her parents (Joel and Marion), took her to Miami Children’s Hospital South – an outpatient facility. When the doctor saw her, she immediately called 911 to have her transported to Baptist’s pediatric emergency department – the nearest facility. Joel and Marion were told Ruby was dying as a result of a poorly performing heart! She was admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit but that same night after being seen by the intensivist and the cardiologist, it was decided that she be transferred to Miami Children’s where her heart problems could better be cared for. It turns out that Ruby was suffering from endocarditis (inflammation the heart’s lining) and myocarditis or inflammation of the heart muscle itself. All the testing done at Miami Children’s came back negative for genetic and metabolic disorders and the doctors felt that the cause of her weak heart may have been exposure to an “undetermined virus.”
To the amazement of everyone (including doctors and nurses), Ruby recovered very quickly and was sent home after 12 days. Unfortunately, this was not the end of her horrific ordeal. Last Sunday September 21st, Ruby had another episode of cold sweats with respiratory distress. Joel and Marion called the cardiologist who told them to take her immediately to Baptist Children’s Hospital. She was again admitted to the pediatric intensive care for “observation.” In the early morning hours of Tuesday, Ruby’s heart began to beat erratically and she had to be transferred to the Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson. That Tuesday morning will be forever etched in our souls as Ruby’s tiny heart was barely beating.
What little heart beats she had, were erratic and ineffective –her life was ebbing away. She was shocked back to life as most of us have seen on TV shows and movies – except this time it was our family’s newborn baby – our little jewel!
The doctors told us Ruby has developed dilated cardiomyopathy, or an enlarged heart, that was directly caused by the myocarditis. We were also told that given her sick heart she would likely need to be placed on the heart transplant waiting list but her prognosis was not all that good. A cardiac surgeon essentially gave us little hope she would be with us for long. Except he did not know Ruby like we and many other doctors and nurses have come to know her. You see, Ruby already loves life and she is mustering all her strength to stay with us. This past Tuesday she withstood a cardiac catheterization and five biopsies of her heart - we are waiting for the results. But still, the heart transplant team is keeping a close eye on Ruby because if she has another episode, her only hope of survival is a heart transplant.
As everyone would expect, Joel and Marion have not left Ruby’s bedside - always riddled with emotional pain and worry – the nightmare that doesn’t seem to end. They are both strong (their daughter comes from good stock), and full of love for Ruby. They no doubt will ride this crazy roller coaster until their baby is well. However, the parents’ family and friends worry about the financial stress that has befallen them. Marion is on unpaid maternity leave and of course, she cannot and will not leave Ruby’s side.
Joel (our brother) is also on leave in order to be by his daughter’s side and to emotionally support Marion. Luckily his employer Miami Children’s Hospital will generously pay his salary for 27 days! Yet the unpaid bills are already piling up: health insurance deductibles and co-payments represent a small fortune to them and then there are still the bills for mortgage, food and all else we all know about. They are taking each day at a time but without help, their emotional hardship will only deepen with the added financial stress.
We have established a bank custodial account in Ruby’s name to ask for donations to help Joel and Marion continue to meet the needs of Ruby and her two loving brothers Christopher (14) and Brandon (7). We understand all donations are tax deductible. We know these times are tough and scary for all and would understand if you are not in a position to help out – but please know that any amount will help and would be greatly appreciated.
Ruby has impacted the nurses and doctors who have treated her as no other child in our family has. Comments abound about her “fighting spirit,” her “will to live;” that “certain look in her eyes” and much more. Curiously, she has had this effect on just about everyone that has met her!

Donations can be made payable to:
Ruby Jolie Cardonne
Mailed to:
Maritza Moreno
5601 SW 68th Court
Miami, Florida 33143


Of course, we ask that you continue to pray for Ruby so that she can fully recover soon.

Thank you so much for your support, thoughts, and continued prayers!
Maritza and Sergio Moreno and the Cardonne Family
PS. We would appreciate it if you would forward this on to your friends and family.

Funny how.........Are you laughing yet?



Remarks from CBS Sunday Morning

I can only hope we find God again before it is too late!!


The following was written by Ben Stein & recited by him on CBS Sun Morning Commentary.My confession: I am a Jew, & every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. & it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated against. That's what they are: Christmas trees. It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu . If people want a crib, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away. I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat. Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too.. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to. In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Katrina) Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?' In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK. Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.' Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Are you laughing yet? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.


My Best Regards,

Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein

USS New York



It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center ..
It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft. Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite , LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept 9, 2003, 'those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence,' recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. 'It was a spiritual moment for everybody there.' !
Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the 'hair on my neck stood up.' 'It had a big meaning to it for all of us,' he said. 'They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We're going to be back.' The ship's motto? 'Never Forget'

Please pass this article around so everyone can see what we are made of in this country!
