Staying on top of things, right?

Politically Correct

While hurricane Sandy has taken the spotlight over the past couple of days, Benghazi and the economy have not been completely submerged by the headlining storm. I am sure the left hoped that Sandy would drown the hype that has surrounded Benghazi and the economy to allow Obama to propel past these issues, but unfortunately hurricane Sandy was not effective in dissolving these issues. The American people are concerned about catastrophe caused by hurricane Sandy and recovery is expected, the past four years have not been forgotten. Sandy has given Obama the opportunity to show his dedication to the American people by focusing on the storm versus his campaign, but if you asked me, it is all one in the same. Obama needed this storm to help him recover from the blows that he has taken regarding Benghazi and the economy, but unfortunately, Obama cannot make up for four years…

Good day, fellow Americans. I stand before you today as a concerned American citizen; as a member of a wounded and failing generation, and as an educated and empathetic human being set by his personal morals to work toward defining and cultivating a better future, a more honest future. I come to you today, personally deteriorated by the current state of our nation. I am here to enlist your help.

It has become apparent in our most recent history that The United States of America has unfortunately and undoubtedly fallen from its once glorious position as a world leader in industry and social progress; as a land of acceptance and brotherhood among ALL its peoples, and as a beacon of hope for all others. Where we once actively engaged and celebrated intellect and imaginative exploration, we have come to fear and undermine it. Where we once stood by truth and…

Should make an interesting.

The Devout Infidel

The Obama campaign has released a 27 point plan, just in time for the election, chock full of ideas that the president failed to get done in his first term. Entitled The New Economic Patriotism: A Plan For Jobs & Middle-Class Security the plan covers everything from manufacturing and energy to small businesses, education and taxes.


Lower the corporate tax rate

Obama Jobs Plan

In the plan, Obama says that his new goal is to add one million new manufacturing jobs by 2016. The first point of his five point plan on manufacturing is to lower the corporate tax rate — which now stands at a maximum of 35 percent — by a quarter for domestic manufacturers:

Reform the corporate tax code to bring down tax rates — cutting tax rates on domestic manufacturers by nearly a quarter — while closing tax preferences and loopholes to pay for it.

This would bring the…

It is looking up, isn’t it?



On Sunday The Des Moines Register, Cedar Rapids Gazette, and Quad City Times and the Sioux City Journal all endorsed the Republican candidate.  In 2008, Romney was endorsed only by The Fort Dodge Messenger and Omaha World Herald.  The final tally means Romney has now secured an unprecedented sweep of endorsements from the six largest papers in the crucial swing-state.

The accomplishment is unprecedented for many reasons.  For one, it’s the first time all the papers have collectively endorsed the same candidate in over 70 years. Four years ago, candidate Obama received warm endorsements from three of the newspapers, and Romney is the first Republican to be endorsed by the Register in 40 years.

This is from Bookworm Room’s blog. I repost it in its entirety. Think about it. I’m going to vote on my way home tonight.

I’m not sure I buy the “Mitt was sent by God” part, but otherwise I think this letter, forwarded to me by my Dad, is worth sharing:

This article is for those who are just simply not enthused about voting for Mitt Romney. You may not be thrilled with the idea of voting for Barack Obama, and in fact, you may be repulsed by it. However, for any number of reasons, you feel uncomfortable with a vote for Romney, and are considering sitting this one out or voting for a third-party candidate. It could be the Mormonism of Gov. Romney you do not like, or it could be his various position changes over the years (most notably on abortion). Particularly in states like Nevada, Ohio…

Some deep questions to be answered her. ‘Should Christian U.S. citizens vote as a matter of stewarding the power and privilege they have in a process that impacts those who cannot represent themselves?’

More Than Serving Tea

Next week I will vote for the first time in a presidential election. I became a naturalized U.S. citizen two years ago, giving up my Korean passport, my (not)green card, and pledging allegiance after having lived in the  U.S. since the spring of 1971.

I actually studied for my citizenship exam out of fear and habit – fear that the wrong answer would mean restarting a process that had cost money, time and emotions, and habit because I grew understanding not studying was not an option. The process actually took years for me, wrestling through ambivalence, frustration, grief and gain to get to a point where the privileges, advantages and necessities of becoming a citizen and my faith as a Christian pushed me over the edge.

At the heart of my decision wasn’t the right to vote. It was an issue of integrity. As a writer/blogger/speaker who addresses issues of…

Some noteworthy figures to note before the elections.

AirModal Independent

Those that voted for Obama did not realize that when you voted for Hope & Change you were voting for the hope that he would leave you with some change… in your pocket. How did that work out for you?

  • Unemployment still in double digits and worsening
  • 80% of college grads cannot find work in chosen profession
  • Over 40% of Americans now on federal assistance (an all-time high)
  • National debt UP 60% since taking office (over $16 trillion)
  • An 84% failure rate on “green” taxpayer investments that most taxpayers opposed
  • Average American income DOWN over $4000 per year
  • Home values still DOWN more than 30% nationally
  • Businesses are closing and investors are leaving America
  • Obama has sent more jobs overseas than all of the last five presidents combined

Inflation is the most punishing tax of all – printing and borrowing 42 cents for every dollar the government spends is suicidal.

After this president, the public could do without this senseless publicity on the ‘Man’ & not the ‘president’. Just look at how misleading it has been thus far.

If you have paid any attention to my political ramblings over the last three years than my prediction that Romney will win the presidential election in a possible landslide is probably not surprising. This is a prediction that I have continued to maintain since October of 2008. These predictions have nothing to do with what I hope happens, only with what I think will happen.  At the time I wrote this I was not a strong Romney supporter.  Now that I have studied the man and his policies closely, and read his book I have become a big Romney supporter.  Of all the republican candidates he was and still is the best…

The RAP Sheet

Am I really going to do this?  Am I really going to stick my neck out and blog about abortion?  Am I really going to try and defend a position that will upset liberals and conservatives alike?

When I started this blog, I promised myself I would use it as a public sounding board for my own thoughts, and if in doing so I alienated every reader of the blog and had no followers, then so be it.  Mind you, I’m not trying to alienate everybody, but if I was, a regular abortion essay would probably be the fastest route.  As a Republican atheist professor, I’m used to having a minority world view.

The stimulus for today’s essay comes from a letter to the editor in the Orlando Sentinel.  It appears to be an attack on Mitt Romney from the right:

This a question!

David's Commonplace Book

Roger Simon at PJ Media believes that if President Obama wins re-election, he should be impeached over his role in covering up details over the terrorist attack on the US diplomatic mission at Benghazi.

If Barack Obama is reelected, will he face impeachment over Benghazi — a yet more unpleasant and far more wrenching result than to lose an election?

It could happen — and in my estimation should happen — the way revelations are playing out over the bloody terror attack that took four American lives and has led to weeks of prevarication and obfuscation.

The scandal thus far has at least tarnished and quite possibly implicated everyone from the CIA director, to the secretaries of State and Defense, to the UN ambassador and, of course, the president himself — with no end in sight, because Obama, normally loath to expose himself and even less so in an…

Fingers are crossed


The Governor of Ohio, John Kasich (R) predicted on “Meet the Press” that not only would Mitt Romney win in Ohio, but the Presidential Election as well.  Kasich said in private polls, Romney was leading. He even went so far as to say, “I’m not sure the election’s going to be as close as what everybody is talking about today”.  Ohio will be a difficult state for Romney to win because the liberal media, along with the Obama campaign has been successful in convincing voters that Romney wanted to see the auto industry go out of business.  The New York Times ran an op-ed piece titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”.  In the interest of presenting only the facts, what Romney said was quite different than what was presented.  In fact, GM DID go bankrupt.  What Mitt Romney correctly stated however, is that it’s not the Government’s job to bail out companies.  Romney simply wanted GM to…

The truth is slowly trickling in about Benghazi.

James Nye

It has been claimed that CIA agents on the ground during the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi twice asked for permission to help Ambassador Chris Stevens and twice were told to stand down.

Furthermore sources present during the deadly six-hour assault have said that a desperate last request for military assistance once the CIA themselves came under attack was denied, even though elite counter-terrorism units were only two hours away.

And it has been claimed there was full communication between the CIA annex in Benghazi and the U.S. military, casting further doubts on the Obama administration’s assertion that there wasn’t enough information to deploy forces – deepening the crisis over their handling of the attack on September 11th and its aftermath.

Let’s hear it for Paul

Parker Flag's Files

VIRGINIA – In hindsight, Mitt Romney’s pick of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) as his running wass a smart, logical move.

Romney, forever the technocrat, made a move that could help leery conservatives come back to the fold and vote for him after all. While the pick of a running mate rarely helps in attracting voters who would have voted for the opposite party, it does help bring out more of the party’s base who would have otherwise stayed home.

Unless you’re a Washington news junkie, Ryan may not be a household name. But he does have an interesting background and has plum role among Congressional Republicans. He’s been in Congress for 14 years. He’s a health and fitness freak who, like Romney, avoids sweets, although for very different reasons. He usually sleeps in his Congressional office, largely because of the sky-high D.C. rents and long workdays. He has a working-class…

We Americans have entered the stretch run for this presidential election cycle.

The dye has been cast. The candidates from President down to the local school board have all made their pitches.  The messages won’t change between now and election day. Most citizens have made up their minds. Millions of voters have already cast their votes.

All of us want the horrible ads to stop.

In all likelihood, our next president is already determined in the hearts and minds of citizens. It isn’t going to change now.

Mitt Romney has made a heroic late campaign lunge toward the presidency. It couldn’t be closer.

The debates have made the difference for Romney. For all-important undecided voters in the swing states, it was probably their first opportunity to see who Mitt Romney really is.

They were the best debates between two presidential candidates in this writer’s memory.

He yelled to the person that they were taking something not theirs and to return it immediately.

President Obama had a great portion of Americans fooled, but they are beginning to realize their folly gradually. The polls leading to this election is evidence of that. That is a huge achievement already!

President Obama had us all fooled… until now!

I spend a great portion of my time analyzing the economy and the affects of policy on our lives. Last night I put it all together.

President Obama claims to be the protector of the poor and the middle class, a man of the people. He vilifies the wealthy “millionaires and billionaires” every chance he can.

In a moment of economic clarity I realized what is “really” going on. President Obama is destroying the middle class. He is burying the poor and crushing retirees. He is even doing major damage to one of his strongest allies, the unions.

Under Obama’s treasury department, Ben Bernanke has been printing money like no other time in history. Over a trillion dollars printed so far and much more to come.

The world and everything in it is a huge miracle everyone marvels about but some still refuse to accept as it is…… an incredible awesome wonder.





The evidence is everywhere,

But only a few will see…

The cross, the flash of the Spirit in love

Versus folks who will never agree.

One needs to make a choice,

To serve God and His Absolutes…

Or kowtow to man’s teaching

Which changes like dirty suits!

To see with the eyes of God

Requires faith in Him…

Not mixed with thinking tied into the world,

Or sourced by political whim.

The miracle of God’s love

Is recognized by only a few…

Invitations are everywhere,

Is your soul worth responding too?

So force a smile and try your best

While someone else picks up the rest

Ships will rust and daylight fades

And flowers bloom give way to shade

Someone searching for their way

Where glory doesn’t last a day

You think that you’ve been here before

But you’re knocking on another door

A fading hope of something more

It’s gone before you know the score

No walking in you close your eyes

It’s you who you’ve come to despise

So open up and face your lies

It’s time to say goodbye

So force a smile and try your best

While someone else picks up the rest

Others ask, is nothing left

A somber mood of those bereft

So as you turn to leave, you say

It’s time to say goodbye today

I’m someone searching for their way

Where glory doesn’t last a day.

Clint, you may remember, spent most of his time at the Republican Convention talking to an empty chair, representing the incumbent president. His performance seemed to say a lot more about Clint than it did about Mitt Romney.
