The fact that the two presidential candidates have been in eastern North Carolina within a week of each other underscores how important a battleground our state has become. Newschannel 3’s Steve Rondinaro covered both the McCain and Obama events. There was in-depth coverage when John McCain visited Wilmington. Steve went to Fayetteville Sunday, wanting to get a similar first-hand look at Barack Obama in action. Barack Obama’s soaring oratory inspires a loyal and impassioned following. At times, he assumes a preachers rhythm, sweeping the willing crowd along with him "I think the winds of change are blowing. Not just here in North Carolina, but in Virginia…," said Obama. Barack wear is high fashion at the event in Fayetteville. From t-shirts to buttons all over. There is even a Barack Obama action figure. Retired school principal, Beverly Scott, was at the event wearing Obama earrings and an Obama watch. "It’s time for change," she said. Super star swooning aside, that is the Obama message that is resonating with his supporters; across racial lines and genders. Carrie Bradley of Hope Mills said, "I like with the older adults what he’s going to do about health care." "I like that he’s the father of young children and cares about the future. That’s what it’s all about, the future," said Eileen Donagh of Fayetteville. "I believe he’s a man of his word. I believe he’s going to do what he says he’s going to do," added Fayetteville resident, Herman Gordon. Obama’s early voting message is being heeded here in North Carolina and across the country. The last break-down we saw showed Democrats in the heavy majority of those who have already voted.

    I can’t say I agree with GUEST fully, but most Yankees I run into keep saying “this is how we did it up north” “Up north we had this and this” IF IT WAS SO DANG GREAT THERE GO BACK!!!!!

    I have lived in NC most of my life and I love this State and Town, but since the influx of “YANKEES” all I’ve seen are more RUDE WHINY people, no more smiles and polite hellos. People from “up north” are afraid to smile at strangers…may get mugged…OH NO!!!

    what ever head back up north if you don’t like our ways here!

  • Guest20 says:

    You should be ashamed!!
    Obama is the one that the being held as the “Messiah”..

    Where is the real concern for our country? Obama’s past affliliations and efforts to cover up his past and current affliations should be of concern to us all! We don’t see the liberal media bringing it to light. hmmm. I wonder why? We are more concerned with ripping apart Palin and making a big deal over her clothing rather than basing this election on truth. Obama is a liar and we are headed for disaster with this man a president. 3 years in the senate is hardly PRESIDENT WORTHY!I know that the argument is then “Palin has no experience either” but she has accomplished more as a governor than Obama has in his 3 years in the senate. Would there be a better choice for McCain for VP? Sure. But it is what it is. McCain would be the president now if elected. Not Palin – unless something happened. OBAMA_ with his lack of experience is who many are choosing as PRESIDENT NOW??? Granted Biden has much more experience but… who is running for PRESIDENT now? And are we willing to sacrifice today for what “could happen if McCain died because he is old?” tomorrow as far as McCain/ Palin go? We used to hold the presidency in such high regard. What happened along the way? I know that many many mistakes have been made with the current administration however let’s not vote on emotion! Yes we need change, however we must be wise and not vote OBAMA simply because he uses the word CHANGE so freely. Discernment, Wisdom, Truth, Honesy, and EXPERIENCE AND KNOW HOW – must be a vital part of the voting decision!

    God Help Us All! John McCain for President!!!

  • SurfCityTom says:

    you could be opening a whole can of unpleasant worms for Barrack Hussein Obama, II.

    He’s in Hawaii right now trying to suppress a court hearing. If the hearing is succesful, it will require entry of a British birth certificate for Barrach Hussein Obama, II issued by the way on his birthdate, for a child born in a hospital in the then British colony of Kenya.

    Do you think Obama really wants that can of worms to open up?

    Cause, if that birth certificate is his and is legal, he is not a US citizen. He is an illegal alien.

    Unlike Henry Kissinger and Arnold Schwarneger, neither of whom was born in this country or to 2 natural born US citizens, who took an oath of allegiance when they became citizens; Senator Obama has not.

    On the other hand, anyone with half a brain knows the natural born offspring of 2 United States citiznes is automatically a US citizen, even if born on the North Pole.

    That’s something Senator Obama can not claim.

    So to answer your ridiculous question:

    Yes Skippy, there is a US citizen named John McCain.

    I’m just not certain if you are spouting off like a beached whale or deep down are a supporter of Senator McCain.

    Looking forward to your witty response. I hope you use fact and not bluster.

  • Proud North Carolinian says:

    Vote for the American! Vote for McCain!

  • Zippy says:

    If there were any real doubt that Obama was a natural born U.S. citizen it would have been vetted long before now.

    This says everything that needs to be said. If there were a real issue, we would be seeing it everywhere, not just in little back-water blogs that only fanatics bother to read.

    Do you not think that McCain’s camp and Hillary’s would have found out the truth by now? More rumors still floating around the internet.

    Phill Berg’s attempt was dismissed by a federal judge this month because they were found to be “frivolous and not worthy of discussion” also they “ventured into the unreasonable.”

    No witty Zippy today, bored of this subject frankly.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    try ridiculous. And aparently full of bluster. No witty, zippy response to Barrack Hussein Obama II latest woe over a birth certificate issued in the British colony of Kenya? Or hasn’t the Obama campaign cleared you to comment oon such a sensitive topic?

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    …and for a truly frightening reason: The judge ruled that ordinary citizens have no legal standing to sue to enforce the Constitutional requirement that the president be a natural-born citizen.

    This isn’t going away, Zippy. You may be electing a man who will never take office. Are you ready for President Biden?

    Better switch your vote to McCain now, to be safe.

  • Guest652487 says:

    unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. read upon the constitutional laws and quit defending him just because you want him to win.

  • Guest7969 says:

    this state goes Blue…it will be the first time in my adult life that I am ASHAMED of my state… :)

    I will also start a petition to DEPORT all YANKEES!

  • my name says:

    THE NARROWMINDED PEA BRAIN WHO DOESN’T LIKE YANKEES IS A REAL EXAMPLE OF A HAYSEED.
    I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN WILMINGTON 55 YEARS AGO AND I AM APPALED TO SEE THAT A MAN WITH SUCH A LIMITED EDUCATION WOULD TALK ABOUT FORMER GLORY.
    FIRST OF ALL, WHAT THE HECK IS HE TALKING ABOUT?
    MY SUGGESTION IS THAT HE GET HIS HEAD OUT OF HIS BUTT AND TAKE A TRIP PAST THE OUTSKIRTS OF WILMINGTON…APPARENTLY, HE HAS NEVER BEEN ANYWHERE.
    AS A NATIVE OF WILMINGTON, I AM OFFENDED THAT IGNORANCE LIKE THIS STILL LIVES IN OUR THRIVING CITY. THANK GOD THE YANKEES GOT HERE TO SAVE US FROM “OUR FORMER GLORY”.

  • Guest1636 says:

    If my wife (both natural born citizens) and I travel overseas while she is pregnant, and she gives birth in some foreign counrty, our child is also a natural born citizen of the U.S.

  • Guest6575 says:

    It doesn’t matter anyway. He was born in Hawaii – this has been confirmed by an independent fact-checking organization. This born in Kenya garbage is just an internet rumor gone wild – embraced by conservative fanatics clinging to any absurd argument that could damage Obama.

    Why not stick to real controversies, like maybe Obama’s association with Wright or Ayers? Thise are both real happenings. Or his stance on Iraq or the economy. There are many valid points for conservatives and liberals to argue about. But this birth certificate mess is just silly.

    According to numerous opinion polls, McCain’s supporters are losing based on the issues. This leaves them with no options other than smear tactics. Pretty pitiful in my opinion.

  • Gene says:

    It is not a real hard thing to present a birth certificate. It is just not a real hard thing to prove where one is born. Mr. Obama, instead of allowing this seemingly endless debate go on, instead of paying lawyers mega bucks to stay out of court, present the documents and be done with it!

    Hiding behind a team of lawyers is not making me feel any better about you. Just do it! End it! Or, can’t you? A very, very, simple question. If you are too lazy to take the time to stop this “rumor” then you are surely too lazy to be Commander and Chief!

    I don’t care if some judge dismised this case. I do care that Obama will not take the time to prove one way or the other his claims to be a naturaly born, US Citizen.

  • Guestwho says:

    I bet the reason that you have it out for the VP hottie would be evident if you posted a self-photo. Lots of heavier, less attractive gals are having a jealous hissy fit over Palin. If you are a guy and you wouldn’t give Palin a vote, maybe you should check out the log cabin republicans. Don’t try to cover it up with issues….you know the real reasons. Admitting it to yourself is the first step to recovery. There is a cure for media-induced liberalism. I just wish sexy Sarah was my nurse…..

  • McPain says:

    It could’nt be more american than to vote for
    Barack and put a stop to the Bush bullies who have devastated this country.

    Look what Bush has done to us!!!!! If that is not un-American I don’t know what is!!!! To look out for your rich friends while working people are fighting to hang on to their homes.

    Vote Barack Obama

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    However, Kenya was never a U.S. Protectorate, was it?

    Zippy, it would be a very simple step for Obama to put all this behind him, and produce an original birth certificate. But instead, he fights the lawsuits?

    Fighting a lawsuit is cheaper and makes more sense than simply producing an original document?

    I’m telling you Zippy, something STINKS to high heaven here. You’re smart enough to realize that, too. I KNOW that alarm bells are going off in your head, not just because of this issue, but because of the chasm that exists between what Obama SAYS, and how he VOTES. Who knew Janus was still alive and doing so well?

    If you have any integrity at all, you should vote for McCain. Do it for yourself, because you are not going to feel proud when you vote for Obama and he eventually reveals the charlatan he is.

  • RomeoEchoDelta says:

    I am truly humbled that y’all enjoyed my perspective.

    The pen IS mightier than the sword, as Mr or Ms Idiot Ex Republican is officially my first victim, having suffered a stroke after reading my humorous truths. I wonder if I caused blood to shoot out of his/her eyes. Oh well. 4 more and I win a 4×6 McCain / Palin yard sign. Dang she’s HOT! And hotness counts as much as being a great orator (that means speaker if big words scare you). Talk is cheap, chumps. Just look at how easily people get wound up on this blog.

    Has anyone checked out Prof. Alexander Tyler? He’s credited with the statement on the Fall of the Athenian Republic which in short reads that democracies only last about 200 years. They fail when voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts. Hmmmmmmm. Ain’t about forty percent of the population on the Government teet now? (I told you Yankees I uz smarter than you-ze)

    Hell, I’d run for office but the pay and the smear campaigns ain’t worth it.

    Ask your lib friends to name 1 piece of legislaton Borat Uday Hussein Nobama sponsored and got passed. Zippo is the answer, and I don’t mean like the cigarette lighter company.

    As for Ms O’Donnell, I’m bringing a mouse. That should do the trick!

  • Guest duder says:

    Hey, I would much rather keep the yankees down here and deport all of yall hate-spewing McCain nutjob rednecks. Posts like this make ME ASHAMED of my state. I cannot stand this hatred toward Northerners. It’s immature and misdirected.

    p.s. – Look at all the polls, McCain is going to LOSE. Deal with it. :)

  • SurfCityTom says:

    1. why did he expend so much energy and supporter time in Hawaii to avoid the necessity of presenting a legible birth certificate?

    2. If this were a Republican candidate, you can bet your bippy, the media would be all over it. But this is a Democrat; different set of rules.

    3. Is he likely to win? Not necessarily. Thomas Dewey thought he had Harry Truam beat. Jimmy Carter thought he had Ronald Regan beat. Oil prices continue to drop. Stock market has a major rebounding.

    Don’t buy your tux for an Obama inaugural just yet.

  • Guest Fat Chick says:

    Hey now, I’ve got a good thirty pounds on Palin and I’m still voting McCain. Just because I can’t put down the cheeseburger doesn’t mean I want to pay more taxes.

  • anne says:

    Obama is what many are looking for – charismatic and full of new ideas (or so it seems). Alot of his plans are just the same thing re-made over because that is what people are looking for. If you truly believe that he is the one for president, vote for him. If you are only voting for him because he is younger or because he is black, you are voting for the wrong reason.

    Also, I have been reading about the spending of both candidates, and Obama seems to be coming up with alot of money from the private sector. Now the newspapers are reporting about where McCain’s money is coming from, but nothing about Obama. Where exactly is the money coming from and why is not being revealed? Kind of makes you wonder, huh?

  • Guest234 says:

    Are you that backward? So you are saying if it wasn’t for yankees NC would still be backward? Oh please. I take it you’ve never been anywhere?
    Yee-Haw praise the yankees. They saved us.
    You are crazy. There are smart,well educated Southerners and that didn’t have anything to do with the north.
    Maybe we could get more gang bangers down here to enlighten our children. I’m sure NY etc would supply the bus.
    Every state has good and bad!

  • Zippy says:

    This will just go on and on in the minds of those wearing the tinfoil hats…

    I WANT TO SEE A COPY OF McCAIN’S Birth Cerificate !! Technically HE is NOT a “natural born” citizen either. Panama even if under US control is not U.S. soil. You cant have it both ways. You can NIT PICK this all day long for both candidates.

    I know its irrelevant, but someone needs to dog the old man and let the word Panama confuse and daze the Minions.

    Here is a tag for all of your posts…

    “I’m John McCain and I approved this lie.”

  • Guest6575 says:

    1. The governor of the state of Hawaii has confirmed the fact that Obama’s birth certificate is on record there.

    2. At the very least, Fox News at least would have been all over this story. They unquestionably lean to the right.

    3. Although I certainly am not going to say who is going to win, I believe Obama is more likely to win at this point. The polls are all giving him a victory, and they are almost always accurate. I stress almost – nothing is certain until election day. Or later than that, as the Gore/Bush Florida race showed in 2000.

    I don’t own a tux. Wouldn’t fit the Island lifestyle. (I live at Topsail Beach)

  • Guest123456 says:

    How about YOU leave, and go somewhere where you might feel more comfortable? I hear Texas is pretty red.

  • Guest123456 says:

    And just what is that supposed to mean, “if he gets elected….he won’t last long.”? Sounds to me like a threat. Sounds to me like we’ve still got some ignorant, racist low-lives still living, and unfortunately they’re living here. Sad.

  • RomeoEchoDelta says:

    Ummmm, you understand being President ain’t like being King or Emporer (which is the job I want). The US government is divided into 3 branches. Legislative, Judicial, and Executive. W is at the top of the Executive Branch. Dems control the Legislative Branch and the Judicial is SUPPOSED to be impartial. W didn’t lead us down this road, but that’s not to say he, along with alot of others, didn’t read the signs.

    If you bought or sold a house in the last 4 years at an inflated price, or hustled real estate trying to get rich quick, you’re as much to blame as he is. In fact, you’re a direct contributor. What goes up, must come down. I’m all about drive and success, but come on – look at how inflated the prices for Waterford and those places are. Stack ‘em up and there’s a huge piece of the puzzle.

    Why do the Dems always tout “raising mimimum wage”? I haven’t earned minimum wage since I was 16. I’m 41 now (and look mighty fine for my age) and I want NO part of making the minimum. If you back off and look at the forest instead of that one tree, you’d see that the Democrats want to enslave you by making you absolutely dependant on the government. I don’t think the Republicans are pure as the driven snow either. Maybe we need to start our own party. “Constitutionalist Party” If it doesn’t pertain to servicing and defending the US Constitution, it’s not important.

    Take a mental break – Imagine for a moment, 9/11 if Al Gore had been president. We’d have probably surrendered that day. I am proud of W when he was under pressure. Things got clouded as more handlers became involved and more time went by, but I thought he unified us like no one had done for 50 years. Even Al laid low for about a year afterwards ’cause he knew he didn’t have the guts to deal with it. Why do you think he went all “green”? He’d already invented the internet and realized he was grateful he wasn’t on the hot seat.

    Back away from your party, no matter which it is, and ask “who is better for the country?” Borat should scare the devil out of you. He makes Nancy Pelosi look like an ugly Jesse Helms. (God bless you Jesse, rest in peace). Ol’ Tap & Scratch McCain is a little closer to “middle of the road”. Not exactly where I want to be, but I can settle for Center.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    I think not Zippy. If there is no merit to this, why hasn’t Senator Obama presented a clear, uncopied, easy to read original copy of his birth certificate?

    Why did he have to use legal “smoke and mirror” technicalities to have the lawsuit dismissed this past week; not months ago as you stated?

    Why does he name one hospital in Hawaii as his birth place while his half sister named another?

    For that matter, where are the hospital records which could clear this issue up?

    Why did his paternal grandmother state she was at the hospital in Africa when he was born?

    How could he attend school in Indonesia, during his residency there? At that time only Indonesian residents could attend Indonesian schools? Why do the Indonesian public school records list his nationality as Indonesian? Did his step-father and mother renounce his US citizenship in order for him to attend Indonesian schools?

    If they did that, it would have been necessary for him to return as a Naturalized Citizen. Naturalized citizens, such as the Governor of California and Henry Kissinger, are not eligible to be President. He never did that; and thus if they did renounce his US citizenship all those years ago in Indonesia, he’s no longer a natural born citizen, if in fact he ever was one.

    It would have been necessary for him to take an oath of allegiance and a number of other things in order to become Naturalized.

    Sorry but that’s the way the Constitution is written.

    Why will he not authorize the release of his college records including admission applications? Is he concerned they might confirm a nationality other than US?

    Zippy, I’ll bet no one in the Nixon Administration thought Watergate would lead where it took our country. Of course, they were all Republicans.

    I wonder how long this would have remained hidden had Senator Obama been a Republican? There would have been investigative reporters from here to Africa and Indonesia.

    More importantly though, since this remains an “open, festering, wound” doesn’t Senator Obamam owe the millions of people who support him and will likely vote for him, a final clearing of the air? Don’t they, and everyone who will have to live under an Obama regime, have the right to know the person elected is absolutely, positively legally qualified to be President?

    Note the word LEGAL.

    Clearly he is not a qualified leader with years of experience leading a governemt or even being a force in the Senate who can build concensus opinions. Voting PRESENT in the Senate sure does not communicate much on how he stands on so many positions other than his “take from the hard working and give to the non-working.”

    Huey Long tried that back in the 1930’s. Got him no further than the Senate.

    What is so hard about this? The Constitution is pretty clear and specific on what one must be in order to be President.

    The Big 3:

    1. Is he 35 years old or older?

    2. Has he resided in this country for at least the last 14 years?

    3. Is he a NATURAL BORN Citizen?

    What is he hiding that prevents him from providing documents as simple as a birth certificate? Will it prove he can not qualify on the basis of #-3?

    Zippy — he can not have it both ways.

  • free american citizen says:

    you can put lipstick on a pig….but you still have a pig….right? well guess what…..you can also put lipstick on a smoke blowin certified idiot….but you still have a smoke blowin certified idiot….works both ways….VOTE JOHN MCCAIN PRESIDENT FOR THE GOOD OF THE UNITED STATES AND ITS CITIZENS!

  • SurfCityTom says:

    you continue to offer bluster instead of fact. You want to see Senator McCain’s birth certificate, go to his website. Easy to read and understand.

    Are you that retarded you can not accept Senator McCain is a natural born US Citizen on the basis of 2 natural born Citizen parents and being born on the soil of a US protectorate?

    Sorry but those are the FACTS!!

    On the other hand we have Senator Obama who has one of 2 choices. 1. Present a copy of his birth certificate. 2. Spend millions of dollars in a court battle to avoid the truth.

    If the Democrats win on November 4, look forward to President Biden. That should be a horrifying thought.

    Don’t forget, after November 4, the Electoral College meets and after that the results have to be ratified by the House and Senate.

    At some point, he’s going to have to come up with a bonafide birth certificate.

    At the last minute, let him claim the records were lost in a fire. Go to the hospital and get copies. Release his college admission applications. Delaying tactics.

    Zippy, you’re spouting off like a beached whale.

    But then maybe you can go to the airport when he boards the plane to return to this birth land after it comes to light he has no birth certificate from Hawaii, any of the other 49 states, any territory, or any protectorate.

    Even you can not change the facts, Zippy.

    Jihan Nassar, a homemaker in Corona, Calif., is listed as a $500 donor to the campaign of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. But she insists she never gave a dime.

    ”I can’t make any donations, financially,” Nassar said Friday. “We never made any donations, sir. I have no idea what you are talking about.”

    Nassar and her husband, Waleed, are among more than three dozen California donors listed as giving to Crist’s campaign on June 19, 2006 — donations bundled by a controversial Delray Beach defense contractor now under scrutiny for contributions to GOP presidential candidate John McCain.

    On Thursday, the McCain campaign said it would return $50,000 in donations tied to businessman Harry Sargeant III, finance chairman of the Florida Republican Party and a college buddy of Crist’s. Sargeant has said the California donors were solicited by a business partner, Mustafa Abu Naba’a, a Jordanian with an apartment in Miami-Dade, records show.

    McCain — a champion of campaign-finance reform in the U.S. Senate –

  • Guest2 says:

    John McCain has long been a major player in a radical militaristic group driven by an ideology of global expansionism and dominance attained through perpetual, pre-emptive, unilateral, multiple wars. The credo of this group is “the end justifies the means,” and the end of establishing the United States as the world’s sole superpower justifies, in its estimation, anything from military control over the information on the Internet to the use of genocidal biological weapons. Over its two terms, the George W. Bush administration has planted the seeds for this geopolitical master plan, and now appears to be counting on the McCain administration, if one comes to power, to nurture it.
    McCain’s Ties to PNAC

    John McCain’s connection to PNAC can be traced back to before its formation in 1997. In fact, he was president of the New Citizenship Project, founded by Kristol in 1994. This organization was parent to PNAC, and served as its chief fundraising organ.

    McCain also worked cooperatively with PNAC and Wolfowitz in attempting to overthrow the Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq. In 1998, he co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act—drafted by PNAC—which decreed “regime change” in Iraq to be U.S. policy, and which appropriated $97 million in U.S. military aid to the Iraqi National Congress (INC). The INC was a group of anti-Hussein Iraqi militants whose purpose was to instigate a national uprising against Hussein. It was led by Ahmed Chalabi, the Iraqi informant whose subsequent faulty intelligence—claims that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and ties to al-Qaida—was used to sell the Iraq war to the American public. In 2004, in response to accusations that he deliberately misled U.S. intelligence agencies, Chalabi glibly stated, “We are heroes in error.”

    McCain also was co-chair (with Sen. Joseph Lieberman) of The Committee for the Liberation of Iraq (CLI). Established by PNAC in late 2002, this committee continued to finance Chalabi’s INC with millions of taxpayer dollars, until shortly after the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, when it was discontinued. In 2004, McCain became a signatory of PNAC, ironically signing on to a PNAC letter condemning Russian President Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy for its return to the “rhetoric of militarism and empire.”

  • Zippy says:

    Are *you* that retarded? (Nice personal slams from you BTW.)Typical. He did present a birth certificate that has been authenticated by the state of Hawaii. It has also be authenticated by a few other news and political organizations. One site has it in their hands with photos of all sides of it. Have you seen a copy of one from Kenya???????? NO. But you choose to believe it because it suits your agenda.

    I think there is a TON of deep seated racism here that prevents you and others from seeing the whole picture and makes it easier for you to believe all the rumors online. It justifies in your mind what you think. I was raised in the south, I am white and I will admit that in times past I have been a racist (maybe I still am). BUT I can not stand for the filth and mud slinging that has gone along with this campaign from anyone. I do research when I hear something new, I also ask myself that if any of it were true just how will it effect me and my country if B.O is president and frankly I cant see a problem. He is just a man.

    I cant see why you are so afraid.

  • Zippy says:

    My logo is “I am Zippy and I am NOT a natural born citizen”. I was born in Europe. Seriously.

    Tom said:”Are you that retarded you can not accept Senator McCain is a natural born US Citizen on the basis of 2 natural born Citizen parents and being born on the soil of a US protectorate?”

    Yeah, re-read my posts. I KNOW that, I was making a sarcastic point.

    Ton said:”Release his college admission applications. Delaying tactics.”

    WHY? You seem to think this farce has been going on all his life so why would he put anything other that Hawaii as his birth place on his college apps.? Remember this is a HUGE farce involving many people including official government entities.

    I HAVE NO idea what hospital my sister was born in, do you?

    I know a lot of people that do not have an original birth cert. issued the day of birth. They get lost. That is why you contact the state and county where you were born and get a certified COPY of it.

  • Guest1636 says:

    I’m kind of fuzzy on all my political science classes from college, but I don’t beleive the constitution defines a natural born citizen. I think it has been interpreted over the years as being a citizen at birth and therefore not having to go through the “naturalization” process that immigrants go through. I don’t think it has to do with the place of birth. So even if Obama or McCain were born in China, the fact that one or both of their parents were US citizens, they were automatically “natural born” citizens at birth.

    McCain’s parents were both US citizens. Obama’s mother was a US citizen. Unless there is a Supreme Court ruling I have forgotten about or am unaware of (possible – since I’ve been out of college a loooong time), both are natural born cizitens.

    “That does involve us spreading around opportunity and it means that for people like myself, making a lot more than $250,000 a year, paying a little bit more so that the waitress who is surviving on minimum wage can put a roof over her head,” Obama said.

    How did we get to a point where the waitress isn’t responsible for putting a roof over her own head? How are wealthy people responsible for her living conditions?

    We’re now going to punish the people who are doing it right, and reward the under-achievers.

    God help this country.

    Obviously you weren’t around the last time we tried this “spread the wealth” nonsense. (Wavy lines and eerie, sci-fi music as we flash back to the late Sixties)

    Lyndon Baines Johnson declared a “War on Poverty,” and promised us “The Great Society.” We saw institutions such as Welfare, Food Stamps, public housing and Medicaid come into existence under something called the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.

    Perhaps the most ridiculous aspect was the acceptance of these programs by poor Americans as some type of progress. It never dawned on them that a millionaire Texas Democrat (who routinely used “the N word” as a description of any Black) simply wanted them to stop rioting and burning down New York, Chicago, Detroit, and L.A, every time they got bored.

    So we placed no requirements on people whatsoever. They didn’t have to go to school, they didn’t have to work. They simply got to lie around Section 8 housing and pop out babies. And every time they had another baby, WE GAVE THEM MORE MONEY! We made up nonsensical rules, such as refusing to pay welfare if there was an adult male living at home. Guess why all the daddies left?

    Within twenty years we had tax rates bumping on seventy percent. SEVENTY!!!! Our economy was dead on its butt and mortgage interest rates were in double digits. Unemployment rates were also in double digits in some states.

    Within thirty years we were into destroying our third generation of poor Americans. They were totally non-functional, and could do nothing other than cash those checks we were giving them. They didn’t HAVE to do anything else!

    Thankfully, two men with some brains changed the picture. Ronald Reagan convinced Congress to drop the tax rates by half and Bill Clinton convinced the Congress to end “welfare for life.”

    Zippy, “spreading the wealth around” simply doesn’t work. It makes the recipients lazy and dysfunctional, and it makes those who are having their wealth seized simply not bother to accumulate more wealth….or develop crafty ways to hide it.

    Socialism is an inherently flawed system that you are getting ready to vote into power. How can you be that irresponsible? Look at Europe, cutting benefits all over the place because the free lunches (that were never really free) started bankrupting the nations.

    Obama’s color is no concern to me. His politics, however, are truly frightening because I have already lived through what happens to this country when Socialists start playing Santa Claus with other people’s money.

    It doesn’t work, Zippy!

  • AndToTheRepublic says:

    I don’t have it out for Obama, but I think it is appropriate to ask these questions about his legal status as a citizen. People are bringing up valid points about his citizenship status while living and attending school in Indonesia, and the status of his mother’s citizenship (my understanding is that her young age at the time of his birth complicates this issue). If it is on record that his grandmother has claimed that she witnessed his birth in Indonesia, that should also be investigated.

    Furthermore, 1). I DO know the name, city and state of the hospitals where my siblings and myself were born. 2). Official Birth Certificates are not issued on the day of birth by the hospital. You must apply for one. A birth record is given to the mother when she leaves the hospital. However you can get a birth record from the state without necessarily having to prove where the child was born (i.e. in the case of a home birth). 3). If Obama claims he was born in a Hawaiian hospital, it is most likely that there would be medical records of that birth – doctors orders, vaccination records, hospital bills, etc. It should be easy to find out if the hospital kept records from that far back.

    If you are a preacher you know NOTHING of the bible.

    Muslims? Sorry, Wrong Century DUH!
    At the time Revelation (not the improperly spelled Revelations) was written, somewhere between 69 A.D., during the reign of the Emperor Nero, and about 300 A.D., the religion of Islam (aka muslims) did not exist. Mohammed was not even born until the 7th Century A.D.

    2. Of Muslim Descent? No Such Warning.
    There is no mention of any being “of Muslim descent” anywhere in Revelation. Incidentally, Barack Obama is not a muslim. He belongs to the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

    AntiChrist? None Mentioned
    3. There is no reference to ANY Antichrist anywhere int the Book of Revelation. The book describes a multi-headed dragon, but never an Anti-christ.

    4. A Man in his 40s?
    Nowhere in Revelation is any such description given.

  • Sarah P says:

    The analysis was conducted by the respected True Bible Society, and it will be published next month in the End Times Journal.

    The analysis was especially ironic, given that it came out just one day after McCain was accused of subtly hinting that Barack Obama could be the Antichrist. McCain ran a commercial depicting Obama as “The One,” giving rise to charges that he was sending a subliminal messages to anti-Obama Christians.

    “What started us looking at this issue is the fact that Senator McCain has declared his intention to maintain US forces in Iraq for a hundred years,” said David Jenkins, a leading Biblical scholar. “That means that McCain wants to control Babylon for at least a century.” According to many scholars of the Book of Revelation, the Antichrist will try to rebuild the ancient city of Babylon in order to use it as a springboard for an international effort at world domination. Ultimately, the Antichrist will marshal forces from Babylon to spark a showdown with Christian and Jewish-led forces in the battle of Armageddon.
    Be aware Christians- don’t vote for McCain!

  • Jerry S says:

    Beware all Christians!! Don’t vote for McCain.
    “Jenkins said his teams suspicions were further heightened when genealogical research showed that McCain’s great-grandfather was actually not John McCain, but John Mihai. Mihai is an ancient Romanian name, and according to Bible-believing Christians, the Antichrist is likely to be a Romanian. “What clinched it for us was that the name Mihai means ‘who is like the Lord,'” said Jenkins. “As far as we’re concerned, that was enough. It means that McCain might easily pretend to be the Redeemer.”

  • johntheman7 says:

    Our beautiful soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is the best future leader for this nation, not Senator Barak Obama. Our beautiful soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is also would be better at leading our nation in the future after a McCain Presidency than Senator Barak Obama would be in leading our nation in the future starting in January 2009. There are great reasons our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin would be a better future leader than Senator Barak Obama. The greatest reason for our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin’s is ideology. Our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is conservative in that she is pro life, marriage, guns, low taxes, low government spending, small government, unintrosive government, traditional and judeo Christian values, Bible reading and prayer in our public schools, and military spending. Senator Barak Obama is a liberal who is anti every thing that I have described that our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is pro about or for. A second reason that our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is superior is because of experience. As a governor she has two years of executive administrative governing experience that Senator Barak Obama does not have. A final reason that our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin is superior is because of political accomplishments. When our soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin came to office she accomplished 3 major things which are as follows: she showed great leadership in the 3 following areas: government reform, the state budget and the economy, and wise use of natural resources. She reformed government by standing up to the big oil companies by breaking up the monopoly on power and resources. She insisted on competition and basic fairness which ended the control that the oil companies had on the state, and thereby returning control of the state back to the people. She also stood up to the special interest and lobbyist, and produced major ethics reform. She lead well in the state budget by generating a surplus which came about by vetoing a half billion dollars of wasteful spending, ending the abuses of earmark spending by congress, and by getting rid of the private jet, the chef, and the chuffer. Economically under her leadership she brought about the largest private-sector infrastructure project in North American history. She also suspended the state fuel tax, and when oil and gas prices went up dramatically, and filled up the state treasury, she sent a large share of that revenue back where it belonged – directly to the people of Alaska . On natural resources she has shown great leadership by beginning a nearly forty billion dollar natural gas pipeline to help lead America to energy independence. When the last section of the pipeline is laid and its valves are opened, will lead America one step farther away from dependence on dangerous foreign powers that do not have our interests at heart. Senator Barak Obama has done nothing, so please vote John McCain for President and give to our beautiful soon to be Vice President Sarah Palin the opportunity that she deserves leading the nation into the future after a John McCain presidency. When our soon to be Vice President does lead the nation as President after a John McCain presidency,she will be the greatest President that we have ever had. Finally she is smarter than Senator Barak Obama

  • SurfCityTom says:

    the constitution does spell out some pretty specific items anyone taking the oath of office, for President, must meet. They deal with age, length of residence in country prior to taking office, and being the off-spring of natural citizens not naturalized.

    Having said that, one must remember the President takes an oath of office. Part of that oath is to uphold and defend the constitution. That portion of the oath is included in the oath sworn to by anyone entering military service.

    Does anyone think John McCain did not think about that oath often while being held in a POW camp in North Vietnam?

    The President should lead by example. The last Democratic President certainly danced around, and out right lied, concerning his relationship with an intern. He lied concerning his relationship with a woman while Governor of Arkansas.

    And he only escaped conviction at his impeachment trial when a group of Democratic Congressmen banded together and voted that his actions did not constitue crimminal and immoral activity.

    But at least he had a clearly legible birth certificate.

    That is something Senator Obama has not presented to date.

    WHY? Why is that such an issue?

    Regardless of whether you agree with his socialistic proposals to steal from the rich and give to those who do not work, we have the right to expect him to meet the Constitutional requirements in order to be President.

    Frankly, his failure to comply with a simple request is clear evidence he is thumbing his nose at every citizen who has supported him.

    What happens, should he be succesful on November 4, when the results are sent to the Electoral College and Congress?

    Think major constitutional crisis. Think President Biden. Think Bull Dog Pelosi being just a heart beat away from the Presidency while a new Vice President is appointed.

    What is so hard about providing access to records? We’re not just talking about his borth certificate. He will not authorize the hospital where he claims he was born to release his birth records. He will not allow access to his college and law school admission applications which would certainly list his nationality.

    If he is relying on smoke and mirros now; what happens should he be elected next week?

I really wish that they had IQ requirements of at least 60 to get a ballot. Are you really that stupid or are you just having fun. What has Bush done to you personally? Really consider that for a moment. Lets remember a couple of things (try not to get dizzy), this economic mess started during the Clinton years because credit was extended to mythological levels and the overly inflated tech stocks rightly adjusted themselves. Secondly, we have not had another major terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11. Yes, war sucks but there has been benefits. Saddam Hussein is dead, a vicious dictator who ran concentration camps and used posion gas on entire regions. While there is a resurgence of the Taliban, they are a shadow of what they were before we stepped in. Now, Bush has made mistakes, but he did have the interests of the USA at heart.
    The idea that you would vote for an unknown, untested, and underqualifed loser like Obuma just because the media told you that Bush was bad is enough to make intellegent people tremble. We laugh at you behind your back and talk about you when we get together. Please try to understand that voting is important and that if you really don’t have the brains to make a logical choice, then you should probably stay home on election day. Seriously, it is the best thing that you can do for your country. Stop watching mainstream media on TV. Research and read some unbiased material. Please try to become a person worthy of casting a ballot that will effect a whole lot more than you can imagine.

  • Guest6575 says:

    Only nut-job conspiracy theorists are giving this rumor serious consideration.

    If there were any credibility to this theory, the conservative Fox News would have been all over it 24 hours a day. Even the liberal mainstream media would be talking about it non-stop. This would be too big of a scandal for any news agency to ignore, regardless of their politics.

    As ugly as the primaries got, Hillary would have been hammering on this argument too. The McCain campaign would also be having a field day with it too, if they thought there were any truth to it. With their campaign budget, there is no way they would not have researched this issue. Even they have determined there is no truth to it at all. Apparently you guys have more dirt on Obama than the entire GOP could dig up.

    As the election draws nearer, and it becomes more likely that Obama will actually win, his detractors are getting desperate in their attempts to attack him.

    1980 for Ronald Regan — 28 years ago

    At this point, it is too early to call; and a week can make major swings in the polls.

    Let the market remain stable for the next few days; let oil prices drop again. That, and folks looking deep at the wealth distribution plan and the costs associated with all of the Obama campaign promises, perhaps enough voters will have an attack of smarts and vote McCain.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    is that too many do not understand how wealth redistribution works. In an effort to clear the air, here is a simplistic example:

    “I am looking for someplace to eat lunch as I perform my job throughout the day.

    I park my car and notice a homeless man at the parking lot entrance. He holds a sign which reads “Vote Obama, ’08 I need the money”

    I go inside the restaurant and notice my waiter is wearing an Obama ’08 tee shirt.

    I order lunch; he provides exceptional service.

    When I go to pay my check, I tell the waiter I am going to redistribute his tip to someone who has a greater need.

    He is sputtering and clearly unhappy. He watches me leave the restaurant. Before I enter my car, I walk over to the homeless man and give him $3.00.

    He gets a puzzled look on his face; but then smiles.

    In summary, I took the waiter’s hard earned $3.00 tip and gave it to someone who doesn’t work. I made the hard working individual unhappy when the impact of wealth redistribution hit him and took his money. I made the person who does not work happy by giving him money he did not earn.”

    I guess this wealth redistribution thing needs more amplificiation if this does not explain on a local level how it could work.

The thing I find really interesting is how they think they are raising their children to be the same, but behind the parents backs these kids don’t feel the same way. My daughter has 6 friends that all have racist parents. Funny thing is all 6 girls date African American boys behind the parents backs and are voting for Obama they have told my daughter and myself they are just afraid of what the parents would say and think if they knew the truth. They just lie instead of being outcast by their own families.

    As far as the person that made the comment about sending all the ” Yankee’s ” home.

    My husband works at the local paper mill and most of his white collar male Friends are also voting for Obama.

    I’m tired of being called unpatriotic for not voting for McCain or Palin.

    I don’t think the Bible should come into it when you speak about Palin she has to be one of the biggest hypocrites I have ever seen. She calls herself an Evangelical Christian but I have my doubts.

    Oh and I was born here in this great state, I’m a republican white female Christian and I’m voting for Obama. No I didn’t drink the cool-aid. No I’m not on drugs. I just woke up and stopped listening to Sean Hannity like he was God speaking the truth and seen him for what he is. A very rich Yankee who doesn’t give a crap about the working class.

    Oh and when McCain says NO TAX. What do you call it when he taxes your health care.

    Clue…… It starts with T and ends with X

    Oh and that’s not 5% of the Country that is 100% of the Country….

    Signed……..

    Southern White Female that is proud of my Country and my State and Proud to be voting for Obama and Biden.

    CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE INSULTS AND HATE I GET BACK !!!!!!!!!

  • Zippy says:

    Don’t like Obama, but you voted for McCain anyway. There was another option~ Bob Barr!!!

    Who the heck is he? I guess they have to have someone else to vote for when you don’t like either the Dem or Rep. You still voted for McCain, so really you do like him, well dislike him less than Obama.

    Either way we are up the creek. As for your 4-S’s, I have a 4-F’s list that all apply to you but sadly I can not post it on here.

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    Don’t make assumptions. I am no fan of John McCain, but I voted for him today. I would have voted for my dog ahead of a man who proudly proclaims his intent to “spread the wealth around” and increase corporate taxes.

    So my opinion is not based upon McCain’s talking points. It’s based ENTIRELY upon Obama’s voting record and what has come out of his mouth.

    If you worthless slugs don’t want to be hated, try carrying your own weight and stop trying to steal from others.

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    Did your company pay 42% of their gross earnings in taxes last year? No?

    Well, that’s what Exxon paid. They paid over $29 BILLION in taxes, but that’s not enough for Obama. He wants them to pay more.

    Remember that when you hand the government the power to levi a “windfall profits tax” against corporations, you are giving them the power to levi that tax against YOU anytime they decide you’re making too much.

    Thanks, but I don’t want a government telling me what I NEED, and taxing the rest away from me.

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    Buy a clue, lady. If they only make $40,000, why do they have four kids? Why should I subsidize their reproductive recklessness? Their kids need to grow up poor.

    Get this through your head – we live in a secular society. Laws are not supposed to be based on “the Christian thing to do.” They’re supposed to be in accordance with our Constitution, and there is nothing in the Constitution that authorizes a Socialist redistribution of wealth.

    Indeed, the Fourteenth Amendment promises “equal protection of the laws.” How is Obama taking money away from me and giving it to someone else “equal protection?”

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    The Four S’s.

    Saps – those who believe that they have an obligation to share their money with society as a whole, or let the government decide how to distribute it. “It’s not my money, it’s OUR money.” These are the same people who send their kids to public school because they want them to meet all sorts of people, instead of getting them the best education money can buy to prepare them for success in life. They truly believe that we’ll be energy independent in an Obama campaign, when some magical fairy dust will be invented to use in place of gasoline. (Identifying feature – Obama sign in front of multi-million dollar McMansion on Bald Eagle Lane or Figure Eight Island)

    Simpletons – these are people who can’t be bothered to look up a voting record or learn the difference between a capital gain and a salary, but can recite eighty percent of Homer Simpson’s quotes and have a cool midget car with a loud exhaust system. They like Obama because he said he was going to give them something…isn’t he? (Identifying features – Anti-Bush bumper sticker and something about Bob Marley on that loud midget car)

    Socialists – To the true believers, the greatest trauma they have ever suffered is the collapse of the Soviet Union. They believe that Marxism could work if we only give it a bit more than the seventy-five years the Soviets tried. Yes, they lost their mentor, but they haven’t lost their desire to destroy America and the American way of life. They want to re-create that government mandated Utopian paradise so near and dear to Nikita and Fidel. “Windfall profits? Let’s just seize the oil companies!” (Identifying feature – Obama sign in front of home in the Historic District)

    Sc**bags – C’mon, admit it! If you lived in Section 8 housing for the past fifteen years, had four kids from three different fathers, and just love going shopping when the food vouchers arrive, wouldn’t YOU vote for Obama? Even though he vacations on a private beach and stays at a four-million dollar beach house, “He’s just like me and feels my pain.” (Identifying feature – positive pregnancy test)

    The sad fact is that the democracy many of us fought so hard to preserve will collapse once The Four S’s gain 51% of the voting power. Oh, it won’t collapse next year, or the year after, but the way this country is moving shows that the eventual collapse isn’t that far in the future. It will likely happen in our children or grandchildren’s life.

    Socialism is like rot – it moves slowly, but it eventually destroys everything.

    So no, I don’t believe that you’re unpatriotic….but you’re definitely one of The Four S’s.

  • Guest15 says:

    Who cares where your husband works, and who his coworkers vote for? America is a free country, and we are all allowed to have our own ideas. Certainly you like Obama’s ideas, so vote for him, but don’t try to tell everyone else how to vote, or that your and your husband and his “white collar male friends'” votes are better.

    Do you know anything about Sean Hanitty’s background? Did you know that his grandparents were immigrants from Ireland? Did you know that he worked as a construction worker, then as a bartender? Did you know that he dropped out of college because he didn’t have money enough to finish? Maybe you should read his biography information and start listening to GOD instead of people you refer to “as God”.

    You say you are a “Christian”, does that mean you are a born-again believer, or simply “christian” as opposed to Jewish or otherwise?

    Sarah Palin walks the talk she talks as well as talks the talk she talks, so how on earth does that make her a hypocrite? She says she “is a Bible-believing Christian with deeply religious convictions”, how does that make her a hypocrite? You are nobody to be judging anyone else.

    Have you actually read John McCain’s Healthcare Reform? We will ALL get a $5,000 TAX CREDIT- read it for yourself instead of relying on the far left media to give you what you think are the facts. Go to JohnMcCain.com and read the details. It even shows you a graph so that you can understand it.

    If you want to know what “unpatriotic” is, go to the video and the pictures showing the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag, and Obama NOT saying it. Is that who you want to be the President of the United States of America? “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. If he won’t say the pledge, the very pledge of allegiance to THE COUNTRY, read it- the flag of the U.S. AND to the republic for which it (the flag) stands…” why should he even be allowed to run for the leader of this country? If his religious convictions are such that he doesn’t believe in God, then the First Amendment gives him the right to not believe and not to say the word “god”. Fine, then he should say the pledge WITHOUT using that word.

    If you are so satisfied with who you are voting for, why do you care so much about what other people call you? The problem with this area is that most people who live here are more concerned with what other people think, and guess what? If you knew just how little people think of you, you’d be surprised.

I know there are many poor people that have hit problems along the way with injuries, sickness etc. but most of them are just to lazy or dumb to get where they need to be.

    Obama is NOT going to GIVE you jack. What he will do is put in place work/education opportunities for you and your brethren to get off your butts and do something……LIKE HE DID. May put limits on the amount of illegitimate babies you can get a check for…You think a man that has worked HARD to make his way into the white house has sympathy for lazy welfare leaches you have another thing coming.

    Are you really this naive? WHO do you think will pay for the increase taxes to small business and the rich? They will roll that up and hand it to you in an increase in goods package! They aren’t going to pay for it…WE WILL…

  • Guest123456 says:

    And Exxon also made some 40 billion dollar profit last year, so yes, I think they should pay more. And you know, if I was making that much money every year, then I wouldn’t mind a bit that I’d have to pay more taxes, and share a little of the wealth. Everything over 2 billion is just kinda like icing on the cake for me.

He didn’t get to where he is by being stupid. Very Liberal, but not stupid. Now, how can I trust a man whose own running mate, that is supposed to be backing him, doesn’t? I can’t and you can’t blame me. Not voting for obama has nothing to do with race. I’m not anti-black, I’m anti-stupid. I’m allergic to it. Instead of voting for the democratic or republican party, why don’t we vote for the American party? you know, the one that used to exist for the good of all citizens?

    George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.

    A little over one year ago:
    1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
    2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
    3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.
    4) the DOW JONES hit a record high–14,000 +
    5) American’s were buying new cars,taking cruises, vacations overseas, doing well!…

    But American’s wanted ‘CHANGE’! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes–we got ‘CHANGE’ all right. In the PAST YEAR:

    1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;
    2) Gasoline is now over $3.50 a gallon & climbing again!;
    3) Unemployment is up to 5.7% (a 10% increase);
    4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION
    DOLLARS and prices still dropping;
    5) 4% of American homes are in foreclosure.
    6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low~~
    $6.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS, BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS INVESTMENT
    PORTFOLIOS!

    YES, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE…AND WE SURE GOT IT! ….

    AND WHAT HAS CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

    NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE IS GOING TO REALLY GIVE US CHANGE ALONG WITH A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS!!!!

    JUST HOW MUCH MORE ‘CHANGE’ DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?

So with that theory in play, the lazy (oh… somebody please tell me what to do so I don’t have to worry about it or think about it or plan for my future) will benefit from an Obama Presidency and the folks that work hard and are successful will be the funders of the “new welfare system”.

    Are you saying that is Bush II’s fault that some people remain racist and ignorant? That sir, (if that is what you are saying) is racism. If that is what you are implying then you need to take a step back and ask yourself a few hard questions. Do you look at every white person that you pass and think that they hate you because you are black? Do you think the white race owes you anything? If the answers are yes then you are the one who is a racist and you are playing the race card. If you are voting for Barack Obama because he is black that is certainly your choice and you should say it. If you are voting for Barack Obama because you have looked at his plans and beleive that his plans are just and right, then say it, but for goodness sake, say something meaningful that doesn’t further the hate discussion in this country. It is useful to no one.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    these folks are not on your intellectual level. Go figure. Here’s how it works.

    If you’re on entitlement programs and public assisstance, your “bennies” are based on the number of youngsters in your household under the age of 18. As they age out, add new ones to maintain a constant income level from entitlements and public assistance.

    Free health care removes any concern about the initial costs of parenthood. Go to one of the clinics and take a look. I have; it’s a disgrace. When you see a Mother with 3 or 4 youngsters under the age of 5 in tow, you know we have a problem. When you see so many “families” which need an interperter as they do not speak English, you know we have a problem.

    Any doubts about that, just go back to 1898 and remember what happened in Wilmington.

    The shareholders of Exxon. The working men and women who have IRA’s and 401k’s, the retired pensioners, the union pension funds, the state employee pension funds….

    …Millions of AMERICANS reaped the rewards of investing in Exxon.

    If you can sincerely justify taking 42% of ANYONE’s earnings,then you are obviously a true Socialist. I sincerely hope that you live to see the folly of your beliefs firsthand. It’s obvious that you learned nothing from the collapse of Communism or the finacial drain on the Western European Socialist democracies that has been a boat anchor on their growth long before the current crisis took hold. Why do you think countries like Sweden, The Netherlands, and France are cutting back on benefits? Why do you think Ireland had explosive growth when they LOWERED corporate taxes?

    Socialism is inherently flawed because it removes the incentive for anyone to try and excel. The rich don’t bother because the government will simply take away their eranings. The poor don’t bother because they know they can sit on their butts, do nothing but spit out babies, and the government will take care of them.

    It also fuels a pirate economy in which income is masked, legally or illegally. I’ve already got my 100% legal tax shelter ready for when your Socialist buddies go crazy in January. You won’t get another dime from me.

    Possibly you’ll wake up when YOU are paying 42% to pay for all the doomed social engineering that cannot possibly work.

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    …about taking money from Mister Smith and giving it to Mister Jones? That’s not fair: That’s STEALING. And how does that mesh with our Constitutional guarantee to provide “equal protection in the law?”

    “Bearing the load of taxes???” What a joke! Let’s check with the IRS and review once again exactly who is paying the taxes in this country already:

    The top 5% of earners (those making over $153k) already pay over 60% of personal income taxes.

    The top 50% of earners (those making approximately $32k) pay slightly over 97% of the personal income taxes collected.

    That means that the bottom 50% of wage earners in this country are paying less than 3% of the taxes…..

    …and you want the wealthy to pay MORE? YOU are bearing the burden???? Don’t make me laugh!

    Who do you think fuels economic growth in this country? Who do you think is doing the hiring? Who do you think is providing capital for corporations to develop new products? To retool that aging assembly line? To try drilling where no one else has drilled before?

    Every dollar you take away from Mister Smith is one less dollar that he can invest in this country. It’s one dollar’s LESS chance that Mister Jones will get hired by a growing business.

    Since most of you Obam-inations have the Economics knowledge of a rather slow parakeet, here’s a bit of info that occupied some of my time in my previous career. One of the reasons that Communism collapsed was that the GDP could never grow because of two anchors hopelessly dragging it down: The number of people in government service (producing nothing), and the number of people who simply had nothing to do beyond receiving their government stipend and getting drunk. Unless you have a robust sector producing goods and services the nation dies.

    Don’t worry about the natural ebb and flow of Capitalism. The recession we’re likely entering may be deep, but it will be nothing like the permanent depression we enter when the malaise of Socialism takes hold.

    Of course, Marx and Engles had some lofty ideals. They simply wanted top “spread the wealth around.” (Sound familiar?)

    Mister Smith EARNED his money, and you have no right to it. If you want to better your life, get up off your butt and work harder, work smarter, come up with a new, great idea, capitalize on some God-given talent you have…..just do SOMTHING, because if you wait around for the government to make your life better, you’ll be sorely disappointed.

    Perhaps McCain would like to explain these associations to the American people, including why he chose to appear on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show less than a year ago and praise him.

    Here is a list: you might want to check into his past also:

    Jim Hensley, Convicted Felon

    Richard Quinn, White Supremist
    Pastor John Hagee, Bigot
    Pastor Rod Parsley, Bigot
    Todd Palin, Member of Secessionist Group
    Andrew McCain, Resigned Manager Savings & Loan

    Todd Palin
    Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, twice registered as a member of the Alaskan Independence Party, a fierce states’ rights group whose primary goal is for the state of Alaska to secede from the United States. Sarah Palin herself was never a member of the party, according to state officials. Founded in 1973 by Joe Vogler, Vogler stated, “I’m an Alaskan, not an American. I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.” “Keep up the good work,” Sarah Palin told members of the Alaskan Independence Party in a videotaped speech to their 2008 convention six months ago in Fairbanks. She wished the party luck on what she called its “inspiring convention.”
    HOW CLOSELY IS McCAIN TIED TO HIM: Todd Palin is the husband of McCain’s vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin has attended their conventions and Sarah Palin herself sent them a videotaped address for their 2008 convention, telling them to “keep up the good work.”

    These are FACTS. If you have a difficult time deciding who to vote for after reading these you are obviously in the herd that will be run off the edge of the cliff because you are not intelligent enough to think for yourself. Remember he is running for President of the United States NOT the American Idol Champ.To start,Obama’s only experience is being a community organizer.He has admitted to using DRUGS. He cannot qualify have a security clearance or be a FBI agent because he has associated with known terriots. His pastor and mentor for 20 years is a radical extremist and he finally had to diassociate himself due to the election.He is going to give a tax break to 95% of people when 45% do not even pay taxes.He is going to spread the wealth(maybe it will be some of yours he takes to give to someone else). He says there are 57 states.I must have overslept with Old Ripvan cause I thought there was 50.VP Biden says we(Obama) will be tested witin 6 months by terriots.But what does he know he only the VP candidate that says Roosevelt went on TV during the 1929 Depression.Same TV the Flinstones used i quess.

    want more? just ask..

    Posed for numerous photos with, and praised extensively, a prominent and unrepentant racist and anti-Semite (Farrakhan) who at least indirectly incited two fatal anti-Semitic and racist pogroms (Crown Heights, Freddy’s Fashion Mart) and played a major role in the racist Tawana Brawley scam. His pastor Jeremiah Wright has made racist remarks about “white America” getting its “wake up call” on 9/11, and the Trinity United Church of Christ awarded the “Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Trumpet” Award to Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. Farrakhan is on record as calling Judaism a “gutter religion” while saying that “white people are potential humans,” but they “haven’t evolved yet.”

  • Guest35 says:

    Let me add a few items my friend Nobama08 hadn’t mentioned, since I was out working today trying to make a living instead of sitting in front of my computer.

    Let’s start with a little Obama history:
    Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. “Barry” (that was the name he used all his life) During this time he had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan. During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a “round the world” trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia, next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family. When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York. It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack – not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It’s not cheap! to say the least. Honestly for a man who grew up in poverty where did he get the money for his tuition and his worldly travels? Student Loans? Maybe. I grew up in a upper middle class family from Atlanta, and I certainly never had the money for such travels or schools. After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000. a year. Great experience to run for president. Must have been a great job for paying off all those student loans.

    Now lets move to some additional connections, notice how I point out how they were associated not just throw out names and don’t waste my time mentioning Ayers (which is the worst of them all)

    Let’s start with Renzko, where was he born— SYRIA
    Rezko offered Obama a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented “Rezar” which is Rezko’s firm. Rezko was one of Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with “seed money” for his U.S. Senate race. In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). It’s funny how Obama’s campaign ads have commented on McCain’s expensive house(hypocrite). On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko. Very, very close ties to Renzko, who was convicted of fraud and bribery.

    Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran

    On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was “sacked” after the press found out he was having regular contacts with “Hamas” I think we are all aware of who they are. Also, this past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will “Take care of things”.

    Don’t forget his college roommates that where born in Pakistan. They are now in charge of all those “small” Internet campaign contributions for Obama. Where is that money coming from? If you do the numbers based on what Barack’s Campaign says the average donation is– everyone in this country and then some would have to have made donations. Is he getting money from the Middle East?

    And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on “This Week” with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion was quoted as saying, “My Muslim faith”. When questioned, “he make a mistake”. Some mistake!

    I sure we all have some connections in our lives that we are not happy to have had, but when it comes to a Presidential nominee, who seems to have multiple connections to areas and contries as these–“Know the enemy within”

    I would love to keep going but it’s late and I have to work in the morning.

    ask yourself how so many Americans will survive in the future when he intends to reinstate the inheritance tax.

    ask yourself how older Americans, who might downsize to smaller homes and use some of the sales proceeds from the sale of their former homes to cover future living expenses will do so when he intends to do away with the tax free sale of homes.

    ask yourself how he will put a plan together to save our economy when his top three economic advisers led Fannie Mae to the brink of extinction under their leadership and caused the loss of NINE BILLION DOLLARS. It only took them 4 years to accomplish that.

    How will hard working Americans live when they see 40% or more of their wages going to fund his initiatives? How will small businesses, already strapped in today’s economy, continue to do business with the new taxes they will face?

    This is the same guy who feels our flag is too offensive to third world extremists and would redesign it.

    This is the same guy who thinks our National Anthem is too offensive to Third World Extremists and would prefer a song like the Old Coke advertising jingle.

    We may all need the powdery form of coke to get by in an Obama led America.

    Perhaps he will want to bring in some Islamic laws to our country. Cut off the hand of a thief. Stone to death a woman accused of adultry. Behead the man.

    That’s one answer to population control.

    Cut out the tongue of those who disagree. Blind those who read newspapers with dissenting opinions? So much for Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press.

    Check out Islamic law for the facts.

    Even Joe Biden admitted this past week-end, if elected, Obama will face a major terrorist challenge during his first 6 months in office. Given all of the above, what will he propose? Perhaps make bin Laden the new Secretary of Homeland Security?

    Wake Up America!!

    Did the DNC make the check out to you or to the station? So much for unbiased journalism.

    Please don’t forget to do a follow-up on how admired he is three years from now.

  • Guest35 says:

    I couldn’t have said it better myself. I have noticed their biased get more and more obvious as the election gets closer!! Come on WWAY, be a real news organization and do a news story on all the questionable Barack Hussein Obama connnections, NOT JUST AYERS. It doesn’t take much to find them. Know the enemy within.

  • sdsurfer says:

    the passionate following of Obama may very well lead to a similar demise…the demise of our great country.

    Obama is truly a media-made candidate.

  • Guest654897 says:

    Even Joe Biden, Obama’s running mate, is trying to tell us that Obama is going to screw the American middle class and that he shouldn’t be trusted. He just has to be a little more conspicous about it. After all, he does want to be VP. Don’t beleive what I say? Just listen to Biden sometime. you’ll see.

  • ronnie1970 says:

    Change is coming but not the kind most will be expecting.You should listen to John Hagee, VOTE THE BIBLE, not your party or favorite, or your pocket book.If we do not get back to the basics of what this country was founded on it is going to pay for alot of bad choices that we will be accountable for.

  • Guest123456 says:

    I apologize ahead of time for calling you ignorant, ronnie1970, but that’s exactly what that comment reeked of. Unfortunately you don’t remember what this country was ACTUALLY founded on, and that was ESCAPE FROM RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION. This country was founded to give everyone the freedom to believe in whatever book they wanted to, not just the bible. You know, slavery was also a “basic” this country was founded on…should we go back to that too?

    I know, you’re still going to be closed-minded after reading this. But at least it’s there, and it is true.

  • Guestx says:

    The news folk have a bad habit of lip-polishing the wrong butt. Seems that I remember them doing the same thing with Gore and Kerry. Both were first class losers, but they kissed up really hard before the election. Obama is nothing, just a flash in the pan. When all of the crying and whining is over, President McCain will get things back to normal. That this county has managed to survive the media and the bleeding-heart liberals is a testament to the strength of the American people. So go ahead losers and pucker up for Obama and get the kleenex ready for election night.

  • Commonsensenotcommontoday says:

    …that Obama and his Socialist cronies plan on taking from successful, productive people and corporations, and giving to peole who sepcialize in being lazy and inept at managing their life.

    A successful person voting for a Democrat is identical to a woman inviting a known rapist home for a few drinks.

  • inmytree says:

    Judging by the comments here, McPalin’s hate campaign is working just fine.

  • hadn says:

    and judging by your reply the hallucinogenics are working pretty good to. will be glad when you come down of your high and wake up and smell the coffee…..

  • Proud North Carolinian says:

    A vote for John McCain is a vote for the United States of America.

  • Guest123456 says:

    Correction: A vote for John McCain is a vote for Sarah Palin. Tell me that’s not 100% true.

  • Guest14 says:

    This is in response to “oh good god”.

    Have you ever actually read the U.S. Constitution? The first amendment says “freedom OF religion”, not “freedom from religious persecution”. The first amendment was stated thusly to prevent the United States of America from either being like or becoming like England, where the Church of England was established to be THE church for ALL citizens of England. Freedom of religion gives ALL Americans the right to either HAVE a religion and to practice “it”, or NOT to have one and not practice it. The Church of England was established in 1558, and because Protestantism was basically not allowed in England, this is what originally set the Pilgrims to search elsewhere to live. They first went to the Netherlands, then ended up settling on Plymouth Rock in 1620.

    Maybe you should go back to U.S. History and read the documents our nation’s forefathers wrote for OUR freedoms today.
    Nowhere in the Constitution does it say anything about the Bible, nor does it mention God. Know what you are writing about or don’t write.

    The constitution was not written until 1787, was ratified in 1788 and was adopted for use in 1789 and has been fully operational since then.

    Slavery was NOT a “basic” that our country was founded on. Do you actually know ANYTHING about the country you live in? In fact, slavery was in existence in Africa beginning in 740 A.D. in Ghana. That’s right, Africa had slaves WAY before America did. Also, just for the record, America was founded in 1492, and there were no slaves here at that time. The first recording of slaves into our country was Jamestown in 1619.

    Also, the United States wasn’t “founded”. America was founded and the United States wasn’t even mentioned until the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson.

    Incidentally, the First Amendment declares that we are to have “freedom of speech”. If THAT is what you are referring to when you say we have the right to believe in whatever book we want to, not just the Bible that is not correct. Not only do we have rights as individuals to express ourselves either orally or in written form. The amendment does not say “believe in whatever book we want”.

    Therefore, your statements to ronnie1970 aren’t the truth.

  • inmytree says:

    Hallucinogens?!?! Is that the best reply you have…you forgot to call me a socialist, who hates America…

  • Proud North Carolinian says:

    And she’s more competent that B. Hussein Obama will ever be. He’s a public speaker, a ‘community organizer’ – and that’s it. Period.

    Let’s vote for the candidate that has the best interest of the United States in mind. McCain’s loyalty to this nation is unquestionable. B. Hussein Obama’s is vague and he’s unwilling to discose much of his past. Vote for the AMERICAN.
