Now we have some 61 Nobel laureates (that means they won the prize -- why don't they just say "Nobel Winners"?) who endorse Obama. Do they use examples of how Obama's policies would be great for the economy? Noooo...they are a bunch of crybabies who want more government spending on their pet projects so that they don't have to find REAL jobs.
I mean, really, they say they want more spending "to meet the nation's and the world's most urgent needs". Yeah, right. See, in a free market, we let private enterprise do this kind of research. How's that increased spending on schools helped out with literacy? (Hint: I want a refund.)
FULL TEXT OF THE LETTER TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC FROM 65 AMERICAN NOBEL LAUREATE SCIENTISTS
An Open Letter to the American People
This year's presidential election is among the most significant in our nation's history. The country urgently needs a visionary leader who can ensure the future of our traditional strengths in science and technology and who can harness those strengths to address many of our greatest problems: energy, disease, climate change, security, and economic competitiveness.
We are convinced that Senator Barack Obama is such a leader, and we urge you to join us in supporting him.
During the administration of George W. Bush, vital parts of our country's scientific enterprise have been damaged by stagnant or declining federal support. The government's scientific advisory process has been distorted by political considerations. As a result, our once dominant position in the scientific world has been shaken and our prosperity has been placed at risk. We have lost time critical for the development of new ways to provide energy, treat disease, reverse climate change, strengthen our security, and improve our economy.
We have watched Senator Obama's approach to these issues with admiration. We especially applaud his emphasis during the campaign on the power of science and technology to enhance our nation's competitiveness. In particular, we support the measures he plans to take – through new initiatives in education and training, expanded research funding, an unbiased process for obtaining scientific advice, and an appropriate balance of basic and applied research – to meet the nation's and the world's most urgent needs.
Senator Obama understands that Presidential leadership and federal investments in science and technology are crucial elements in successful governance of the world's leading country. We hope you will join us as we work together to ensure his election in November.

Well, Sandy my boy (or girl, who knows), there's this little thing called the Constitution that you so conveniently cherry-pick from. The Constitution calls for the Electors (later called the Electoral College) to elect the President. See, Sandy, since you missed it in 8th grade civics, the popular vote does NOT elect the President. That is reserved for the Electoral College, and that takes place, oh, about six weeks after the election. So, ya see there, Sandy, you shouldn't espouse violations of the Constitution if yer gonna try to be considered a serious thinker. Leave that to us Rednecks out here in Flyover Country.
Since you are a dolt and a truther, why don't you spend your time figuring out who was on the Grassy Knoll? That would be a better use of your time.
Read the whole thing...you'll be able to go to sleep knowing you are sane. Sandy? -- not so much.
UPDATE: Just found out that Sandy was a guy...that was not a slam earlier about guy or gal. I truly didn't know.
Also found out he's a teasip. Why does that not surprise me? There are more lefties in Dobie than there are in all of Portland.
Obama to plumber, "My plan will spread the wealth around."
Excuse me, but what the ______? I am here to tell you that if Obama is elected and he implements his socialist views on our economy, I am done donating to those organizations that help "these" same people he wants to rise up. I am done giving my money away to the bell ringers, churches and any other organization that helps "these" people.
I will continue to support our troops, the VFW and Veterans.
If he is going to take my money, "these" people can get it from him !!!

The case for McCain's plan can be made very plainly: If you like your coverage as it is, the plan will let you keep it and you will pocket a little more money at tax time. If you don't like your coverage now, the plan will give you a lot more options to choose from and let you use the same money your employer now uses to pay for them. And, if you don't have insurance today, the McCain plan will offer you more options, reduce costs in the market for individual insurance, and put you $5,000 closer to having health insurance. Obama's plan would push tens of millions of people out of private insurance they like and into a vast government program. It would, moreover, raise taxes on hiring in hard economic times and break the federal budget. (Emphasis mine.)Read all of it here.

No one can now believe that withdrawal by March 2008, as Sen. Obama once advocated, would have been anything but an utter calamity.Yes, these are words of cheer....because they mean that McCain can still win.
Read it all here. Whew...I feel better. I think I'll send $100 to McCain/Palin.

Anyway, 100 economists have signed a letter condemning the Obama economic plan (plan? That's generous -- it's really a cluster you-know-what). Here's a sample:
Barack Obama argues that his proposals to raise tax rates and halt international trade agreements would benefit the American economy. They would do nothing of the sort. Economic analysis and historical experience show that they would do the opposite. They would reduce economic growth and decrease the number of jobs in America. Moreover, with the credit crunch, the housing slump, and high energy prices weakening the U.S. economy, his proposals run a high risk of throwing the economy into a deep recession. It was exactly such misguided tax hikes and protectionism, enacted when the U.S. economy was weak in the early 1930s, that greatly increased the severity of the Great Depression. (Emphasis mine.)Read the rest here.

Here's a bumper sticker for those brave McCain supporters:
It’s only 9 am Dallas time and I am already pissed off. I started watching the Obama speech to the people of Grand Rapids, Michigan and oh my god, I noticed right off the bat that he is giving a totally different speech to the mostly “white” people in Grand Rapids versus the speech he gave on the steps of the Detroit City Library to “mostly “black” people in Detroit a few days ago.
This speech in Grand Rapids is about jobs and economic issues, while the Detroit speech was about blacks overcoming all the hard times through the 200 + years of this country, including slavery.
What an arrogant SOB !!!! Are Obama and his crew that color conscious that they feel they have created different messages based on race? Do the black people in this country not care about the economy? Do the white people not care about fair treatment regardless of race? Does he really have to change the inflection in his speech pattern when he is speaking to whites and blacks?
Is Obama that stupid to think that no one would notice his racist speeches and gestures? Does this mean if he is elected and living in the White House that he will serve, Prime Rib, salad, baked potatoes, white bread and angel food cake to all the white people who come to dinner and BBQ, potato salad, biscuits and sweet potato pie to all the black people who come to dinner?
If he treats white crowds differently than black crowds while trying to get elected, what makes anyone think he will treat them differently if he is elected?
Wake up America, listen with the two ears you have or suffer for the next four years.
