The best kind of health care is very tightly-regulated competitive-based health care. (picking up on what the Tom/brother up there was saying).

I don't know about the serious ass-kicking but I know this :

If you voted for Bush in 2004 you are very directly responsible for Barack Obama.

If he wins y'all should be happy.

YOU created him.

If you have to ask "How did we create him ?" then you probably should excuse yourself from voting this year...

Back-fucking-lash.

So by your logic, if you voted for Clinton, you were responsible for Bush?

The Iraq war was a colossal mistake in every way shape and form.  The guy in the video is a tool who desperately needs to conjure up some sort of fantasy to relieve his personal guilt and sense of worthlessness.

Before the invasion Iraq was run by Saddam Hussein a SECULAR ANTI-Islamic Fundamentalist.

As a result of our invasion Iraq is NOW run by an Islamic Fundamentalist Theocracy with close ties to IRAN!!!

Great fucking job! What a wonderful victory we have, now that we replaced a SECULAR dictator with an ISLAMIC THEOCRACY sympathetic with IRAN!

Got this in an email today from my boss:

 Why is all of this going unnoticed by the media????  They send 1000 reporters to Alaska to dig up something on Sarah Palin and they have this right in front of their eyes! 


     


From Dreams of My Father:'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'
 
 From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'
 
 From Dreams of My Father:'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'
 
 From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'
 
 From Dreams of My Father:'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'
 
And FINALLY the Most Damning one of ALL of them!!!
 
From Audacity of Hope:'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'

Summary of the eRumor:  
A collection of quotes from two books written by Senator Barack Obama that try to highlight his attitudes about race and Islam.
The Truth:  
All but two of the quotes seem to be accurate, but are taken out of context.

One of the quotes does not exist and the one about Islam is fabricated.

Also, whoever constructed this eRumor claims that some of the quotes are from a book by Obama titled Dreams of My Father.  The actual title of Obama's book is Dreams From my Father.

In response to email rumors that have circulated about Obama, his campaign has created a page to respond to the rumors.  CLICK HERE for the "Fight the Smears" page.

(CLICK HERE for a list of other related stories about Barack Obama)

Let's look at them one-at-a-time:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."-Truth!
This is an accurate quote from the introduction to Dreams from My Father.  The book chronicles Obama's experience as the son of an African father and an American mother.

"I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."-Fiction!
This quote does not exist in either of Obama's books.

"There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white."-Truth!
This is a quote from Dreams from My Father.  It it in a section in which Obama describes a job interview with a man in Chicago.  Race had been a part of their discussion and the full quote is, "There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe.  And white---he'd said himself that was a problem."

It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."-Truth!
This one is also from Dreams from My Father.  It is from a section when Obama was a college student and wrestling with his identity including as an African-American.  The quote describes his observation of what was required among his fellow students.

"I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubois and Mandela."-Truth!
This is from Dreams from my Father.  The more complete quote is, ""Yes, I’d seen weakness in other men— Gramps and his disappointments, Lolo and his compromise. But these men had become object lessons for me, men I might love but never emulate, white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."-Fiction!
This is a corruption of a quote from Obama's book The Audacity of Hope.  It is from a section that talks about the concerns of immigrants who are American citizens.

Here is the accurate and more complete quote:  "Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging.  They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

I never formed an opinion of the email & took it as I do all chain emails. Found it interesting enough to want to read the books though, to find these quotes. Those are HEAVY quotes IF they are true!
I've made up my mind based onother things. I hate them Both!

This is just a political observation. If you find yourself using the same code words for something that the politicians use/invent, you might think twice about what you're saying...that goes for both parties. The news regurgitates whatever phrases politicians trot out for them. It's "branding". Advertisers have been doing this for years...why do we buy JIF, SKIPPY or the Generic Brand...it's all the same shit, but we buy the brand. War On Terror, War On Drugs, The Patriot Act, Redistribution of Wealth, Joe The Plubmer, Compassionate Conservativism, Pro-Life.... Wish I could think of some the Dems came up with, I'm sure they're out there, but to be honest this is something the Republicans seem especially good at doing. Think about it...we weren't even at War when we became involved in the War On Terror.

To any republican or any person who voted republican either of the last two times :


Defend Bush.


Tell me or anyone how he has made your life better or the country better.

8 fucking years - tell me.

Go ahead.

I'm waiting...

Then extrapolate and tell how McCain will make your life better.

(And - "At least he's not Obama !" doesn't count...)

I knew I should've added that vid to my favorites, then I guess whoever made it got his info from the same BS blog and domains as you do, or did you make that video yourself?
