What I did on Sunday before the election
Sunday afternoon, 2 November 2008, I spent doing three things, well, four:
1. Enjoying the fabulous season we call Indian Summer here in Minnesota with the windows open.
2. Watched the Vikings put an end to the Texans' winning streak.
3. Prepared for teaching a bunch of 8-10 year old kids in Bible Study Fellowship about grumbling Israeli's who forgot about God's goodness within a month of being set free from slavery.
4. Preparing to write a number of articles about Barack Obama and his stated views on some very serious issues.
So, with number 4 in mind, I did a bunch of research and opened up a number of tabs. Some of my, and what should be your concerns:
Courts and judges-
How Obama will select judges and how he sees the law:
"We need somebody 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’m going to be selecting my judges. " Justice will no longer be blind but prejudiced. The blindfold is torn off Lady Justice.
A warning by Jonah Goldberg. A warning from his Obama Messiahness.
Personal choices- HAH! Kiss those GOOD BYE!!!!! They may not be quite appropriate . Under the BHO enlightened administration, "price signals" need to be sent to you and the economy to "encourage" you to make "appropriate" choices to have changed behavior.
The money quote? "
Q: How do you convince people to change their lifestyles, to live differently, or to turn the question on its ear, are voters ahead of the politicians on this stuff? Do they get it, and maybe the politicians don’t?
A: Well, I think, uh, I think voters do understand it. I think it is important for us to send some price signals to change behavior.
Remember, this is the POTUS candidate that says that we can't drive what we want or heat our homes because the world doesn't like that.
Go here to read Ed Morrissey's comments at Hot Air.
Asymmetrical warfare (like flying fully fueled planes into buildings) is a danger. It was in 1993, in 1998, in September 2001. BHO wants to cut defense spending and especially, and dangerously, missile interceptors when danger of ICBM's is just around the corner (go down to "Ballistic Missile Defense...") or read this. This is what BHO wants to cut or eliminate. Just when we need it most. However, a BHO teamed up with Pelosi and Reid and the rest of the crackpot left that couldn't see an energy crisis, and economic crisis coming won't see this coming either. But, when Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are turned into glass parking lots or there is an EMP attack here in America, they'll blame Bush and the Republicans. Or evil "Big Defense".
The following is the second video I decided to embed. The reason is that Frank Gaffney knows exactly what he's talking about. Hugh Hewitt defaults to Gaffney when there are matters of national defense. On the morning of 9-11, as I was on my way to the pharmacy for pain meds after extensive foot surgery, I had my Mom pull the car over so I could hear Hugh interview Frank Gaffney at about 10:30 that morning. Mr. Gaffney is a sober reasoning intellect when it comes to security and threat analysis. He needs to be listened to and heeded.
But for me, the most chilling and most ominous position were the righteous Obamessiah comments on the Constitution that, if he wins the election, he will swear an oath to "Preserve, protect and defend". His views are that the Constitution is flawed because the Founding Fathers didn't see to the necessity of "spreading the wealth around" and that the Supreme Court didn't attend to that glaring flaw in the supreme law of the land.
There is so much more that I planned to and could go on to say.
This will and should suffice.
