John McCain



This is what we saw last year. The right wing nutcases have gone nuts after losing the 2008 elections. They are now multiplying in large numbers, opposing the new admnistration left, right and center.  It is going to get worse. They can not handle the Obama Presidency. The hidden agenda is out in public. It is no longer a GOP secret.

It is killing them to the point that, they are willing to carry guns to town hall meetings to intimidate people. They are Cowards.. That is the language of cowardness. Showing off guns.

This is not about the stimulus, because last year between September/October 2008, the Bush administration gave $700B in stimulus to the wall street when the economy went to the toilet last year.  This outrage is not even about health care.

It is about something bigger than all above. This is something  that has been hiding deep down their (GOP right wing nuts) throats for decades.  It is RACISM at its best.

The question is;

Are we intimidated by these screamer cowards  who carry guns to the town hall meeting or scream like they are in labor;  to avoid a health and productive adult debate? and are we  going to allow nut cases control our minds?

My answer is NOPE…. Enough of this nosense. Some of us, are not easily intimidated. We leos can be nice and stubborn , our gentleness is always mistaken for a weakness, which is not the case. We just give people chance to tie the rope in their own neck, and kill themselves.  Once you cross your line we crash you.

Do not under estimate President Obama. The day he will turn around to give these nut cases, one or two pain killers, they will cry like babies with diaper rush.

February 17 2009, GOP rally against stimulus: 

Right wing anti-stimulus rally in colorado

The Bush administration approved and signed on $7oob stimulus in Sept. October 2008,  if my memory serves me right. Remember when John McCain suspended his campaign, and said he went to help out make a decision on how to help with the sinking economy, when the system collapsed?

 Mr Obama was not yet elected as president. How come  I did not see all this outrage from the right wing. What a bunch of hypocrites.

April 15 2009, Denver tea party

When Bush lied to this country that Sadam Hussein had weapon of mass destruction, and he and Dick Chenney, signed on the Iraq war, how come I never saw this outrage , to stop the Bush administration from the reckless spending? Hypocrites.

Yeah we spent almost 10 million every month on the  Iraq war. Where was the outrage? Hypocrites.

What has changed on the GOP side  since 2008 elections? nothing. More anger and more intimidations towards the new administration.

Health Care oppositions right wing goes nuts?????????????????? As above

Same bull still going on with the losers.

I am so tired of people pretending like they were not in this country for the past eight years. Especially those who claim to have voted for Mr Obama, and all of a sudden they are crying like babies in wet diapers that they are dissapointed in President Obama already.

I can say this to them. YOU NEVER SUPPORTED president Obama, so stop coming out pretending like the reason you are acting like the crazy right wing nuts is because the new president is not doing much.

I have seen a lot of inprovements from January 20 2009. President Obama and his administration are working tirelessly to fix the mess left by your holyness craziz Republicans.

Enough  of this nosense. The  name calling of the sitting president and opposing to anything he says is childish.

I am tired of all this angry fakers,bunch of  hypocrites. It is over. Get over it.

My friendly advice is;

If you cannot handle the fact, pack your bags and go hybernating. Ask your ancestors where they came from. maybe you can have some peace there for the next eight years. 

What should the Obama administration do now?

In my own opinion, It is time for President Obama to move on with the people who elected him. He cannot continue to negotiate with the sychopath , the party of “NO“. 

Republicans are defining themselves, they are nasty and ignorant. What they covered up  for years ( rascism) is out, therefore they have nothing to lose. They lost their elections, so do not sink with them.

I can explain it easily as illustrated in this video. That is the thinking of the right wing nuts and their Congress men and women.

Repubs have no decency to hide their hatred anymore.  All I can say is, the far right,  wing nut cases, are an embarrassment to the white race. Thank God, the progressive do not chew in the same dish with the crazies.

As I said above, It is time for  President Obama to move on. These are the same people who did not support his candidacy during the elections. Nothing has changed and nothing is going to change their minds. The poison has been passed on, from their forefathers and now they are passing it on to their innocent children, just like their parents passed it to them.

Move On Mr President. President Obama is a great person, he has a good temperment, but I think it is time to say ENOUGH guys.

 It is over for the Republicans. They failed this country over and over. ? What makes President Obama think, GOP will do a miracle this time around.

 It is time for the president to show his leadership as hepromised. GOP will never support him, they are angry and wounded. They lost the elections.

GOP will get over it. Stop negotiating with the GOPs in congress or senate. They are behind all these unproductive rallies.

ENOUGH is ENOUGH.


Sarah Palin’s rambling speech left my mouth wide open. What was Sarah rambling about? 

Her speech made me dizzy, as I was trying to get sense of her reasoning . It gets round and round, keep circling in this wall with no outlet. That is how her speech sounded.

Do not get me wrong, I do not hate Sarah Palin, I just do not like her reasoning, and the way she reacts to things.

The problem is not Sarah Palin, but the followers that can not Grasp that Sarah need more education before she runs for president. She is not well balanced,  and can not take the heat. She appears to be too childish. A thought of pimping her to run for President  is crazy.

 I blame people who keep planting the thoughts in her head that she is ready and keep pushing her to run. The fact is this woman is not ready for any office.

Sarah Palin needs to tone it down or slow down a little bit.

She should sit back and keep her acts together, before she puts her face in politics again.

Attacking Media and her critics will not help her. She needs to work on her weaknesses before she puts herself on a political stage again.  That is my friendly advise I can give to my dear Sarah.

The truth is, her last speech as governor sounded nothing like a petty angry little woman , giving one boring speech . Sarah talks about nothing. It is like going through the round abouts and not reaching the destiny.

Here is Sarah Palin Fairwell Speech:

“What an absolutely beautiful day it is, and it is my honor to speak to all Alaskans, to our Alaskan family this last time as your governor.  And it is always great to be in Fairbanks.  The rugged rugged hardy people that live up here and some of the most patriotic people whom you will ever know live here, and one thing that you are known for is your steadfast support of our military community up here and I thank you for that and thank you United States military for protecting the greatest nation on Earth.  Together we stand.

And getting up here I say it is the best road trip in America soaring through nature’s finest show.  Denali, the great one, soaring under the midnight sun.  And then the extremes.  In the winter time it’s the frozen road that is competing with the view of ice fogged frigid beauty, the cold though, doesn’t it split the Cheechakos from the Sourdoughs?  And then in the summertime such extreme summertime about a hundred and fifty degrees hotter than just some months ago, than just some months from now, with fireweed blooming along the frost heaves and merciless rivers that are rushing and carving  and reminding us that here, Mother Nature wins.  It is as throughout all Alaska that big wild good life teeming along the road that is north to the future.  That is what we get to see every day.  Now what the rest of America gets to see along with us is in this last frontier there is hope and opportunity and there is country pride.

And it is our men and women in uniform securing it, and we are facing tough challenges in America with some seeming to just be Hell bent maybe on tearing down our nation, perpetuating some pessimism,  and suggesting American apologetics, suggesting perhaps that our best days were yesterdays.  But as other people have asked, “How can that pessimism be, when proof of our greatness, our pride today  is that we produce the great proud volunteers who sacrifice everything for country?”   Now this week alone, Sean Parnell and I we’re on the, um, on Ft. Rich the base  there, the army chapel, and we heard the last roll call, and the sounding of Taps for three very brave, very young Alaskan soldiers who just gave their all for all of us.  Together we do stand with gratitude for our troops who protect all of our cherished freedoms, including our freedom of speech which, par for the course, I’m going to exercise.

And first, some straight talk for some, just some in the media because another right protected for all of us is freedom of the press, and you all have such important jobs reporting facts and informing the electorate, and exerting power to influence.  You represent what could and should be a respected honest profession that could and should be the cornerstone of our democracy.  Democracy depends on you, and that is why, that’s why our troops are willing to die for you.  So, how ’bout in honor of the American soldier, ya quite makin’ things up.  And don’t underestimate the wisdom of the people, and one other thing for the media, our new governor has a very nice family too, so leave his kids alone.

OK, today is a beautiful day and today as we swear in Sean Parnell, no one will be happier than I to witness by God’s grace Alaskans with strength of character advancing our beloved state.  Sean has that.  Craig Campbell has that.  I remember on that December day, we took the  oath to uphold our state constitution, and it was written right here in Fairbanks by very wise pioneers.  We shared the vision for government that they ground in that document.  Our founders wrote “all political power is inherent in the people.  All government originates with the people.  It’s founded upon their will only and it’s instituted for the good of the people as a whole.”  Their remarkably succinct words guided us in all of our efforts in serving you and putting you first, and we have done our best to fulfill promises that I made on Alaska Day, 2005, when I first asked for the honor of serving you.

Remember then, our state so desired and so deserved ethics reform.  We promised it, and now it is the law.  Ironically, it needs additional reform to stop blatant abuse from partisan operatives, and I hope the lawmakers will continue that reform.  We promised that you would finally see a fair return on your Alaskan owned natural resources so we build a new oil and gas appraisal system, an  is an equitable formula to usher in a new era of competition and transparency and protection for Alaskans and the producers.  ACES incentivizes new exploration and it’s the exploration that is our future.  It opens up oil basins and it ensures that the people will never be taken advantage of again.  Don’t forget Alaskans you are the resource owners per our constitution and that’s why for instance last year when oil prices soared and state coffers swelled, but you were smacked with high energy prices, we sent you the energy rebate.  See, it’s your money and I’ve always believed that you know how to better spend it than government can spend it.

I promised that we would protect this beautiful environment while safely and ethically developing resources, and we did.  We built the Petroleum Oversight Office and a sub-cabinet to study climate conditions.  And I promised I’d govern with fiscal restraint, so to not immorally burden futre generations.  And we did…we slowed the rate of government growth and I vetoed hundreds of millions of dollars of  excess and wtih lawmakers we saved billions for the future.

I promsed that we’d lead the charge to forward funding education, and hold schools accountable, and improve opportunities for special needs students and elevate vo-tech training and we paid down pension debt. 

I promised that we would manage our fish and wildlife for abundance, and that we would defend the constitution, and we have, though outside special interest groups they still just don’t get it on this one.  Let me tell you, Alaskans really need to stick together on this with new leadership in this area especially, encouraging new leadership… got to stiffen your spine to do what’s right for Alaska when the pressure mounts, because you’re going to see anti-hunting, anti-second amendment circuses from Hollywood and here’s how they do it.  They use these delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets, they use Alaska as a fundraising tool for their anti-second amendment causes.  Stand strong, and remind them patriots will protect our guaranteed, individual right to bear arms, and by the way, Hollywood needs to know, we eat, therefore we hunt.

I promised energy solutions and we have, we have a plan calling for 50% of our electricity generated by renewable resources and we can now insist that those who hold the leases to develop our resources that they do so now on Alaska’s terms.  So now finally after decades of just talk, finally we’re seeing oil and gas drilling up there at Point Thompson.  And I promised that we would get a natural gas pipeline underway and we did.  Since I was a little kid growing up here, I remember the discussions, especially the political discussions  just talking about and hoping for and dreaming of commercializing our clean, abundant, needed natural gas.

Our gas line inducement act, AGIA, that was the game-changer and this is thanks to our outstanding gas line team, and the legislature adopting this law, 58-1.  They knew, they know AGIA is the vehicle to drive this monumental energy project and bring everyone to the table, this bipartisan victory, it came from Alaskans working together with free market private sector principles, and now we are on the road to the largest private-sector energy project in the history of America.  It is for Alaska’s future, it is for America’s energy independence and it will make us a more peaceful, prosperous and secure nation.

What I promised, we accomplished. “We” meaning state staff, amazing commissioners, great staff assisting them, and conscientious Alaskans outside the bureaucracy – Tom Van Flein, and Meg Stapleton and Kristan Cole, so many others, many volunteers who just stepped up to the challenge as good Alaskans, but nothing, nothing could have succeeded without my right-hand man Kris Perry.  She is the sharpest, boldest, hardest-working partner. Kris is my right-hand man and much success is due to Kris.

So much success, and Alaska there is much good in store further down the road, but to reach it we must value and live the optimistic pioneering spirit that made this state proud and free, and we can resist enslavement to big central government that crushes hope and opportunity.  Be wary of accepting government largess.  It doesn’t come free and often, accepting it takes away everything that is free, melting into Washington’s powerful “care-taking” arms will just suck incentive to work hard and chart our own course right out of us, and that not only contributes to an unstable economy and dizzying national debt, but it does make us less free.

I resisted the stimulus package.  I resisted the stimulus package and we have championed earmark reform, slashing earmark requests by 85% to break the cycle of dependency on a stifling, unsustainable federal agenda, and other states should follow this for their and for America’s stability.  We don’t have to feel that we must beg an allowance from Washington, except to beg the allowance to be self-determined.  See, to be self-sufficient, Alaska must be allowed to develop – to drill and build and climb, to fulfill statehood’s promise.  At statehood we knew this.  At statehood we knew this, that we are responsible for ourselves and our families and our future, and fifty years later, please let’s not start believing that government is the answer.  It can’t make you happy or healthy or wealthy or wise.  What can?  It is the wisdom of the people and our families and our small businesses, and industrious individuals, and it is God’s grace, helping those who help themselves, and then this  allows that very generous voluntary hand up that we’re known for, enthusiastically providing those who need it.

Alaskans will remember that years ago, remember we sported the old bumper sticker that said, “Alaska.  We Don’t Give a Darn How They Do It Outside?”  Do you remember that?  I remember that, and remember it was because we would be different.  We’d roll up our sleeves, and we would diligently sow and reap, and we can still do this to carve wealth out of the wilderness and make our living on the water, with strong hands and innovative minds, now with smarter technology.  It is what our first people and our parents did.  It worked, because they worked.  We must be prudent and persistent and press for the people’s right to responsibly develop God-given resources for the maximum benefit of the people.

And we have come so far in just 50 years.  We’re no longer a frontier outpost on the periphery of the world’s greatest nation.  Now, as a contributor and a securer of America, we can attain our destiny in the promise of our motto “North to the Future.”  See, the pressing issue of our time, it’s energy independence, because there is an inherent link between energy and security, and energy and prosperity.  Alaska will lead with energy, we will prove you can be both pro-development and pro-environment, because no one loves their clean air and their land and their wildlife and their water more than an Alaskan.  We will protect it.

Yes, America must look north to the future for security, for energy independence, for our strategic location on the globe.  Alaska is the gate-keeper of the continent.

So, we are here today at a changing of the guard.  Now, people who know me, and they know how much I love this state, some still are choosing not to hear why I made the decision to chart a new course to advance the state.  And it should be so obvious to you.  (indicating heckler) It is because I love Alaska this much, sir (at heckler) that I feel it is my duty to avoid the unproductive, typical, politics as usual, lame duck session in one’s last year in office.  How does that benefit you?  No, with this decision now, I will be able to fight even harder for you, for what is right, for truth.  And I have never felt like you need a title to do that. 

So, as we all move forward together, let’s vow to keep championing Alaska, to advocate responsible development, and smaller government, and freedom, and when I took the oath to serve you, I promised…remember I promised to steadfastly and doggedly guard the interests of this great state like that grizzly guards her cubs, as a mother naturally guards her own.  And I will keep that vow wherever the road may lead.  Todd and I, and Track, Bristol, Tripp, Willow, Piper, Trig…I think I got ‘em all.  We will forever be so grateful for the honor of our lifetime to have served you.  Our whole big  diverse full and fun family, we all thank you and  I am very very blessed to have had their support all along, for Todd’s support.  I am thankful too.  I have been blessed to have been raised in this last frontier.  Thank you for our home, Mom and Dad, because in Alaska it is not an easy living, but it is a good living, and here it is impossible to lose your way.  Wherever the road may lead you, we have that steadying great north star to guide us home. 

So let’s all enjoy the ride, and I thank you Alaska, and God bless Alaska and God bless America.”


Wake up America.This is frightening stupid. Sarah for heaven sake, is  running for vice president, a very critical position. She does not sound presidential. Very childish giggling, not having the intelligence of awareness, is scary. Sarah  can not protect this country period. Bin Laden would prank her easily. She  has no sense of intelligence.

How can a socialist country be a good example to USA, when her and McCain are criticizing their opponent, claiming he is a socialist. How sad is this. Stupid, stupid stupid.

The only problem the McCain/Palin Campaign have is thinking Americans are dumb and stupid. In their own abnoxious heads, they think People will buy their repeated Bush analogy. Palin is still not a smart woman , she just repeats speeches written by former Bush  advisers, to the extent that she gets so sidetracked by lines that has been taught. to the level of not answering the question being asked. She can not think on her own. She gives answers to the questions that run in her head, and not the questions she is asked.

It is frightening.

To support my claim, Watch this video.

And they plan to go negative on Obama, in the remaining 30 days? Well all I can say is bring it on. I am sure McCain and his puppets still does not get the point. This  election is not about Obama. It is about every American that has felt the pinch from this administration.

So if I was McCain, I would go in the mirror and rethink my strategy. McCain and Palin have so much crap around them. This push to win the white house by McPalin is frightening sad. I wonder how many American people will be bullied by the McCain/Palin Camp, other than the mainstream media that has been attacked by the McCain Camp, simply because they spoke the truth and  by bringing out the facts about Sarah Palin.


ABC News’ David Wright, Alyssa Litoff and Imtiyaz Delawala report:

After significant pressure from the Obama-Biden campaign, the McCain-Palin campaign today finally released the 2006 and 2007 tax returns for Sarah and Todd Palin, along with a public financial disclosure document the candidate recently filed in connection with her bid for the vice presidency. 

The documents paint the picture of a well-to-do middle class family with two income earners.  Palin is clearly the primary breadwinner, earning more than twice as much as her husband, even though the so-called “First Dude” operates two businesses –- commercial fishing and income from snowmobile racing.

According to the most recent return, Todd Palin’s fishing business grossed less than $50,000 in 2007 for a profit of $15,513.  His snow machine racing business grossed $17,000 but home office expenses meant that he claimed a net loss of nearly $10,000.

It is, however, Sarah Palin’s income that is liable to draw the scrutiny of tax authorities.  And it is not immediately clear whether the figures detailed in these newly-released forms will resolve questions that have already been raised.

Of particular interest: roughly $17,000 in state-issued per diems for evenings spent in her own home in Wasilla.  The Washington Post recently reported that the per diems and associated travel costs from the state capital in Juneau for Palin’s family could mean a tax liability of more than $60,000 for Palin’s first year and a half as governor.

The address listed on the 1040’s is Palin’s family home in Wasilla, which would seem to suggest Palin considers that, not the governor’s mansion in Juneau, her “tax home.”  However the McCain-Palin campaign maintains that her “tax home” is technically the governor’s mansion in Juneau.

The point is potentially significant because any per diems and travel reimbursements received in connection with someone’s “tax home” would likely be taxable as income.  According to IRS regulations: “If you (and your family) do not live at your tax home (defined earlier), you cannot deduct the cost of traveling between your tax home and your family home. You also cannot deduct the cost of meals and lodging while at your tax home.”

The IRS also strictly forbids deductions for expenses incurred bringing a spouse and kids along on a business trip.  Tax authorities say any reimbursement for travel costs for family members would likely incur income taxes.

But Palin’s tax returns indicate she paid no taxes on the disputed per diems and travel expenses.

The McCain-Palin campaign insists Palin did not owe taxes on the per diems because of an understanding reached between the IRS and the Alaska Division of Finance, giving the state broad discretion in determining whether such reimbursements are taxable. (“Income Tax Implications Of Long-Term Per Diem”)

The campaign also issued an advisory letter dated September 30, 2008 by Washington tax attorney Roger M. Olsen stating that: “she is entitled to meal and incidental allowance payments when away from her duty station and tax home performing services for her employer; it is not relevant that she spends the night at her family home rather than in government paid lodging.”

Finally, the campaign insists she saved the state money hundreds of thousands of dollars on her travel costs, compared to previous Alaska governors.

However, a Washington tax attorney who supports Obama disputes that argument.

“She’s using her state office as a means to generate a favorable tax status for herself,” he said. “You and I couldn’t do that.”

There also appears to be a discrepancy between the income Palin reports to the IRS and the income listed on the public financial disclosure reform she recently filed in conjunction with the campaign.

That form lists her income as governor of Alaska as $196,531.50.  However that’s greater than the combined income with Todd Palin she reported on her 2007 1040: $151,556.  The W-2 form submitted for 2007 lists her wages and other compensation at $107,987. 

Which begs the question: what happened to that extra $88,544?   According to the McCain-Palin campaign, the additional amount represents the salary Palin earned in 2008, during the period not covered by the 2006 and 2007 tax returns.

Palin makes no separate accounting of travel expenses and reimbursements on the public financial disclosure form.  Although the form does include a space for listing reimbursements from any one source over $260, the form simply says, “Not Applicable to candidate


By SARA KUGLER, Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK – Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who has not held a press conference in nearly four weeks of campaigning, initially barred reporters from her first meetings with world leaders Tuesday, but reversed course after they protested.

At first, campaign aides told the TV producer, print and news agency reporters in the press pool that followed the Alaska governor that they would not be admitted along with still photographers and a video camera crew taken in to photograph her meetings with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, who are here for the United Nations General Assembly this week. She also was to meet later with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

These sessions and meetings scheduled for Wednesday are part of the Republican campaign’s effort to give Palin experience in foreign affairs. She has never met a foreign head of state and first traveled outside North America just last year.

At least two news organizations, including The Associated Press, objected to the exclusion of reporters and were told that the decision was not subject to discussion. Presidents and members of Congress routinely allow reporters to attend photo opportunities along with photographers and the reporters sometimes are able to ask questions during the brief photo sessions, usually held at the beginning of private meetings.

CNN, which was providing the television coverage for news organizations, decided to pull its TV crew from the first meeting, with Karzai, effectively denying Palin the high visibility she had sought. But after the campaign agreed to let CNN’s producer in as well, the CNN camera crew joined the session.

According to the CNN producer who was let into Karzai’s hotel suite with the photographers just before noon, Karzai was talking about his son. Palin was nodding, and asked what his name is. Karzai replied his name was Mirwais and explained that it means light of the house.

The media were escorted out after about 40 seconds.

Campaign aides subsequently announced that reporters would be allowed to accompany photographers into the later sessions with Uribe and Kissinger.

At that point, campaign spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said it was all just a “miscommunication.” Earlier, she had said, “The decision was made for this to be a photo spray with still cameras and video cameras only.”

Palin has been criticized for avoiding taking questions from reporters or submitting to one-on-one interviews. She has had just two major interviews since Republican presidential candidate John McCain chose her as his running mate on Aug. 29.

On Wednesday, McCain and Palin were expected to meet jointly with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko. Palin was then to meet separately with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
