Nancy, Nancy, Nancy

Speaker of the House Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi has called President Bush a "total failure." I do not know if the Speaker should be making such statements. What did President Roosevelt say, "speak softly and carry a big stick?"

Since she brought it up, let's just compare the record of President Bush and the Congress since Mrs. Pelosi took control.

From Feb 1, 2001-2007 the Dow Jones Industrial Average went from 11,100 to 12, 657 and by July of the 2007 it peaked at 14,200. I used Feb. 1 in these years because that is 10 days after President Bush took office in 2001 and the Democrats & Mrs. Pelosi took power in 2007. We see a rise in the market of almost 3000 points by July of 2007.

If we look at the market since July of 2007 it has now fallen from 14,200 back 11,400, almost where it began at the start of President Bush's term. It has risen several hundred points this week, but what is coincidental to this rise? It happens to be President Bush announcing that he was lifting the Clinton executive order banning U.S. off shore drilling for oil.

We can look at similar charts and stats on employment, housing, and inflation and in each case we can trace a decline to the take over by Democrats in Congress.

The truth is that the Pelosi/Reid congress are the real failure. They have been nothing but an obstructionist congress fighting any and every piece of legislation in order to self-fulfill prophecy. Success on the part of the Bush administration would mean doom for them.


Jessie Drops the N Bomb

Just as we thought we had heard the last of the Jesse Jackson
wanting to castrate Barack Obama, Fox drops another earlier unmentioned little tidbit for us. That "Rev." Jackson had also dropped the N bomb. My first question was to ask, why did Fox News keep that one from us initially? It could not be in order to milk the story for another week could it? Nah!!

Then we saw a Bru ha ha on "The View" over Jesse's use of the word. Elizabeth Hasselbeck had the nerve to question the use of the word, with Whoopie saying "We use it the way we want to use it." Really? Did I not remember just over a year ago seeing a funeral for the word? In fact it was at the NAACP convention. Don't believe me here is a link to the article with video and all.

Guess Whoopie did not get the memo.

Whopie went on to say that she and Hassleback lived in 2 different worlds. I would have to agree. Whoopie lives in her own fantasy world a neither world. Neither black now white. A world where she can pick and choose what she wants to be that day. Must be nice Whoopie. Few are privileged to live there. Whoopie, Oprah, the Obamas', Harry Belafonte, Bryant Gumbel, and a few others. The rest of us live in just one every so often touching the other.


Do as I say not as I do

When will Americans realize that Liberals are the new Hypocrites with former V.P. Al gore leading the pack.

While Al Gore is receiving millions of dollars, and awards for his speeches, and film on "Global Warming," his own home, air travel, and ground transportation, as has been well documented, is 1000 times that of the average American.

Here is the latest example of the Gore Hypocrisy. This video from Americans For Prosperity was shot outside of the venue where Al Gore was attempting to upstage Boone Pickens with his own 10 year energy independence plan. The difference in Al Gore's Plan and that of Boone Pickens is that the Gore plan is the same old idle talk about theories and speculative and very expensive energy substitutes. Did I not tell you in last week's post that I wanted to see what the left would do to try and counter Pickens? Gore's speech has been all over the news giving him free promo for his hot air, while Pickens is putting up his own money with a serious and concrete plan.

Speaking of "idle" while Gore was speaking he had 3 gas guzzling limos, waiting out back
(2 Lincoln Town Cars and one Suburban). One of the Lincoln's had the engine running for 20 minutes with the A/C on. Guess who got in that one? Sorry you will have to watch the video to the end for the answer. Oh, its only 5 minutes long.

I Was Wrong John McCain is Right!!

As you must know if you read my comments last week on John McCain speaking before the NAACP convention, I was against it. I have to now, however, publicly and humbly admit that I WAS WRONG. While Sen. McCain may or may not have won the majority, if any of attendees over, I believe that this was the best and most clear cut speech, defining the issues and the points of departure with Sen. Obama, that he has given in any venue.

Sen. McCain was gracious, courteous, and respectful. Most importantly he spoke about the need for school choice, tax policy that lowers taxes on everyone including corporations, energy policy, and a number of other issues that affect all Americans, but he delivered these in a manner that so clearly expressed why these issues and the Republican answer is the best and right one for Black Americans. You go John McCain.

I also want to give props to the NAACP convention attendees who showed great courtesy and respect to Sen. McCain.

Below is the YouTube video of Sen. Obama's speech and below that a link to a page that contain's Sen McCain's speech. I encourage you to listen to both. First, Sen. Obama's then Sen. McCain's. I think the difference is overwhelming and I suspect that there are some nervous people in the Obama corner this evening. I apologize but Sen McCain's speech is not on YouTube yet so you must scroll down to the video on the page.

The Picture Says It All

This picture shows why President Bush was right to boycott the NAACP conference and why John McCain is foolish in going.

You cannot tell me that the NAACP with its resources cannot find a photo of Sen. McCain smiling. In fact they had to go through lengths to find this photo of him almost snarling. This is absurd in its boldness. The NAACP should be ashamed of itself for such clear cut "Yellow Journalism."

If this is how they are preparing for McCain, I hate to imagine what the reception will be like at the actual gathering.


TV 1, the new BET, announced today that it will cover the Democratic National Convention and only the Democratic National Convention.

I have one question. What would happen if CMT said they will only cover the only the Republican Convention? Can you say racism??

Barack Obama wants Americans children to learn more than just English in school. Hey Barack, how about we learn English first? I wonder if Ebonics counts as a second language.

I can hear it already, "tsk,tsk,tsk, honey they created another course just for black kids to fail in."

Oil Man Gets Full of Wind & Gas

Texas/Oklahoma oil man T. Boone Pickens announced yesterday that he is tired and has had enough of sending our money to foreign nations for our energy. The news channels are playing his new ad announcing the almost non stop.

Pickens has a new energy plan that focuses on building thousands of windmills in northwest Texas, that he believes will provide 20% of the energy we are now getting from overseas. He then wants to replace the rest of the need with clean burning natural gas, of which I am told we have enough to last us for a thousand years.

Let's see that the environmentalists have to say about this one.

With an entire new, gizilion dollar industry developing, will black folks step up and be counted to take their place in cashing in on this, or will we find a way to complain about this.
