An Open Letter to Obama Voters
Oregon Magazine, by Matt Barber

Original Article

Posted By:previouslyon24, 10/21/2012 12:38:33 PM

Did you vote for Barack Obama in 2008? A lot of people did – obviously. What a time. There’s still room for improvement, but what a testimony to just how far we as a nation have come in terms of racial harmony, tolerance and diversity. Only decades earlier a man like Barack Obama – a black man – couldn’t even drink from the same water fountain as a white man, let alone become president of the United States.

Comments:
I think it's going this way already, but we can't stop praying for it.

FTA: “Mind if I ask why you’re voting for Mitt Romney?” [snip] “Because I refuse to be that stupid twice.”

Whoa! For the once deceived, this is not so much an election as it is an alter call.

The saddest part of hussein's legacy, I believe, will be that when good, capable black candidates run for the presidency, it will take decades before one of them will be able to get elected.
Hussein obama has tainted the brand. And that is too bad.
In late 2007, after hussein obama annouced his run, some black leaders asked if he was black enough.
We know the answer. He is not.

Ruh-Roh... This kind of thinking is VERY powerful. Are there enough rational voters in Oregon to help elect Mitt Romney?

On a related topic, Obama has spent his entire life being passed along, promoted, groomed for greatness (by Mo Money Jones in the Ill Legislature, by J. Wright who introduced him to and gave him a leg p in Cgo's Black community, by B. Ayers who doubtless wrote Dreams and then allowed, probably insisted, that Obama take credit), anyway, I think Obama has never been criticized in his life. No one has ever asked very much of him. I don't think he is at all comfortable in his office,and I think as great an ego thrill being the pres. is, he'd just as soon be kicking back in his 25 million dollar Hawaii house (that he and M. are buying) and run around the world, snowing the UN etc. Anyplace to get away from real demands and real criticism.

The intelligent free thinkers didn't vote for him the first time and won't this time either.

Zippy has assured that it will be a long time before we consider another black candidate.

For the love of G-d, quit with the water fountain story. It was not all over the south or the country, and I should know.

I wonder how much of this is going on, liberals who won't vote for Obama again. Our neighbor was over on Saturday night a few weeks ago. He was going to vote for Obama again. I went to great lengths to tell him why I thought that was a terrible idea and then asked him why. He had no answer. He came back a week later and told me he was no longer going to vote for Obama. He must have got to thinking about it. I was so pleased.

Somewhat related, this afternoon I loaned my copy of 2016 to another neighbor, I just go it on Friday and I'm going to loan it to as many people as I can between now and the election. I don't think Dinesh will mind.

I have the same concerns if and when a woman runs and wins. If it is hilary and she screws it up as much as obama then it will be decades before a woman will win again. My concern is it appears a lot of obama voters do not read or comprehend or even care as long as the "free stuff" keeps coming their way.

It may turn out that very few people vote for Obama and yet he still wins.

The November surprise.

The election, like the constitution, is just a bothersome relic from an old racist America that we need to move beyond.

Excellent article, thank you for posting. There are going to be an awful lot of under votes. People who can't bring themselves to vote for Romney but can't vote again for Obama. They will vote Democrat the rest of the ticket. The Democrats will propose this is evidence of machines not working or something. We all know the machines only work when they show Democrats as winning.

Let's hope the open letter opens some eyes.
This is just anecdotal, but we recently stopped at some garage sales in one of those trendy liberal neighborhoods that was draped with Obama signs in 2008. They were on cars, on houses - even on their pets!
This time there were only a few Obama signs here and there. And we also saw a nice smattering of Romney/Ryan signs in an area where Republicans usually lay low.

Rudyard Kipling in Captain’s Courageous described one boy’s youth during one period of time as a misguided exercise in the mis-use of power. I don’t recall the name of the man who told me that a life is a journey on a railroad train that having emerged from an infinitely long and dark tunnel is traveling for a while in the light, heading for an infinitely long and dark tunnel not far ahead. Experience is made of the scenes you can see changing out the windows. It is a lovely soft grey pre-dawn in this far corner of the fable called Oregon, and a time when back in the day this now old man once began trout fishing trips

To the American business world, he’s a giant — head of the nation’s second largest private company. To the political world, he is, by turns, the country’s No. 1 bogeyman and benefactor. To Wichita, he is the Wizard of Oz — ever-present yet rarely seen, influential but invisible. To the media, and by extension the public, Charles Koch is elusive and inscrutable. Until now.

If there is one thread that weaves throughout the conservative landscape it is this: if Barack Hussein Obama were a Republican, impeachment proceedings would have been seriously considered long ago, and the general mass media would have been providing the grist for it. Here’s the argument that seems the most common illustration: If George W. Bush had decided to issue congress-be-damned executive orders or agency authorization decisions concerning such major areas as immigration, health care, guns, minimum wage, wind farms, global warming, presidential records, natural gas, government travel expenses, establishing bureaucracies, Libya, abortion, pursue accession to the U.N.

Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out. In a pathetic attempt to distract from the Obama administration's foreign policy failures,

Scott has written here some months ago about Diana West’s provocative book American Betrayal, which has excited considerable criticism from fellow conservatives. I have nothing to add to this controversy now, but I did stumble across this eight-minute video of my first mentor M. Stanton Evans introducing Diana at a recent dinner for Diana in New York. Take in the first few minutes and you’ll get a good helping of Stan’s droll humor, culminating in his “Law of Inadequate Paranoia.” You’l understand why so many are devoted to him.

Democrats were ecstatic in 2010 when they learned that ex-Governor Kitzhaber was still willing to run for office again. No reason to vet someone with his liberal experience and history. It was basically anyone but a Republican, something of a mantra in Oregon politics. But it seems that Oregon has replicated the same mistake the voters did with the Presidency: elect a Czar instead. Chris Dudley, the governor’s opponent, remember him? No matter what you might have thought of him, he would never have ok’d a Cover Oregon. But I digress.

As noted at the top, William Henck has worked inside the IRS Office of the General Counsel as an attorney for over 26 years. Although it goes over some old ground, we submit the following personal account by Mr. Henck for the consideration of readers in the context of current controversies without further comment. He writes: I have been an attorney in the IRS Office of Chief Counsel for over 26 years. Over a number of years, I have attempted, largely unsuccessfully, to alert the public to abuse within the IRS.

“Why is it we fought against tyrannical, socialist enemies (during hot and cold wars) only to systematically and gradually adopt the same senseless governing philosophies. . .” It’s possible that some of the most well-adjusted people in the world belong to the Mafia. And why not, given that normal, external rules and convention are completely ignored in favor of doing, and getting by with whatever it takes to get the job done. If it means bribery, extortion, or threatening to kill, that’s just part of their routine measures of “persuasion.” Their lifestyle works so well they have little reason to doubt their own sense of well-being.

Is Barack Obama really the somewhat interesting guy who wrote Dreams From My Father? I doubt it. I don’t say Bill Ayers necessarily wrote the book, but I doubt that it was Obama. He has yet to formulate a political thought in an even slightly original way. Hackneyed phrases and deadening cliches are the essential medium of his expression. His speeches are like New York Times editorials. They ought to be accompanied by a warning: Reading may kill brain cells. There is no premium on originality in political rhetoric, but Obama tests the limits. He extends the concept of recycling into previously uncharted territory.

The AP Misreports
the Debt Ceiling
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: previouslyon24- 10/15/2013 9:51:18 AM     Post Reply
I wrote here that no matter what happens with the debt limit, the federal government will not default on its debt obligations. I also noted here that Moody’s–which certainly ought to know–agrees that there is zero chance of default on Treasury bonds. In recent days, many more commentators have made the same point. The government is legally obligated to recognize its debt obligations, and the existing $17 trillion debt can be serviced on less than ten percent of federal revenue. So there simply can’t be a default.

As many of you know, the federal budget is said to be out of control.

I’m one step ahead of all of you, if you pardon my audacity. What I found out in my time at the Illinois statehouse and on the streets of Chicago is that you let your enemies do the dirty work.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country."

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer.
