So, Joe The Plumber was out on the trail with John McCain today, apparently giving the thumbs up to someone in the crowd who felt that an Obama Presidency would bring about the end of Israel. From Raw Story:
Watch the video here: http://phillyimc.org/en/node/76974
A new video posted to Youtube shows McCain/Palin supporters spewing racism and hate at peaceful pro-Obama demonstrators outside a McCain/Palin rally Oct. 27 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.
One older gentleman early in the video shouts “Bomb Obama!” at the videographer and Obama supporters. Asked by the videographer what that means, the man says, “Get rid of him,” then gestures indicating this means assassinating Obama.
We pretty much see the abject failure of today’s Republican Party far and wide.
Admit it, the GOP has become the standard bearer for socialism.
There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING conservative about today’s Republican Party.
You’re right when you trash talk ultra-liberalism because when you get right down to it the only economic difference between ultra lefties and today’s Republicans is that one admits that they prefer socialism for the masses and the latter WILL NOT admit to being the driving force behind socialism/welfare for the wealthy.
This is the 10th Presidential election that I have been eligible to vote in – 40 years of watching politicians get elected, some that I supported, most that I didn’t. I look back to my college days at Northwestern where, as a Freshman from the Northeast, I entered as a Republican from a Republican family, but where I changed into a Democrat with a profound interest in what a vote for a candidate actually meant.
When the Sunday morning political pundits began talking last year about the tab for the war in Iraq hitting $1 trillion, Rob Simpson sprang from his sofa in indignation.
“Why aren’t people outraged about this? Why aren’t we hearing about it?” Simpson said. And then it came to him: “Nobody knows what a trillion dollars is.”
The amount _ $1,000,000,000,000 _ was just too big to comprehend.
What a week this is starting to be! Obama is tying up a controlled and well thought out campaign with the support of more and more people (including leading Republican spokespeople and influential Independents), while McCain and Palin, supported by the most extreme 527 groups, are trying anything to smear the Democratic candidate and are resorting to tricks to turn the numbers around.
1636 – The Massachusetts General Court provided 400 pounds to support a school or college, and so, Harvard University was founded in Cambridge, MA.
1904 – Fingerprinting was first used by the St. Louis Police Department.
COINCIDENCE? I THINK NOT!
As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.

The one week countdown to the most hardfought presidential election in history gets underway Tuesday with Barack Obama and John McCain vowing to fight to the finish for every last vote.
The White House rivals were to hold competing rallies Tuesday in the rust-belt state of Pennsylvania before splitting, with Republican McCain fighting a rearguard action in North Carolina and Obama heading to Virginia.
Fading in the polls, John McCain fought Barack Obama for support in economically hard-hit Ohio on Monday, each man pledging to right the economy and turn the page on the Bush era in a state with an impressive record for picking presidents.
Eight days from the election, however, Republicans looked and sounded increasingly like a party anticipating defeat, and possibly a substantial one.
