A New Nightmare Scenario

According to reports Senator McCain will be meeting with Former Senator Obama (soon to be, but NOT YET President-Elect) today, November 17, 2008 about cooperation.

Rumor has it that Former Senator Obama may offer Senator McCain the post of Secretary of Defense. The idea of a Republican SecDef, with a Democratic President is not that far-fetched- after all, Sec. McNamara was a Republican.

However, this appointment would be an INCREDIBLE VICTORY for the Democrats, and a NIGHTMARE for the GOP.

If Senator McCain leaves the Senate, his seat will be fill by appointment by the DEMOCRAT Governor of Arizona. This would, as things now appear to be standing, put the Democrats at, or over the 60 seat Super Majority.

It appears that Stevens' seat is gone. The "recount" in Minnesota is a joke and appears to be headed for a Franken win-- especially if they keep finding "missing" ballots. The GOP could hold 41 seats if Saxby Chamblis wins in Georgia.

However, if Senator McCain leaves the Senate-- the Democrats have total control...

By the way-- is this Obama plagiarizing the "Seventh Season of West Wing"-- the "Maverick Republican Senator" gets appointed to the "First Minority President's cabinet."

Later today I am flying to Minneapolis-- anyone want to bet whether I am asked to fill out a Democratic Absentee Ballot for Franken when I land????

Own A Gun? Don't Apply to Work for Obama

The President-Elect and the Former Clintonista's and Kool-Aid Drinkers who are in his transition team, are making it clear that restricting gun ownership will be a big part of the agenda.

The new administration's "vetting" questionnaire, asks about gun ownership. Question 59- "Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage."

Either the President-Elect does not want gun-owners in his administration, or more likely, he wants to make sure there are as few as possible, and that none have ever been involved in a self-defense situation that those of us on the "evil right" could point to.

He does not ask about violation of firearms laws. He asks about ownership. He asks about registration (which is only required in five states). He asks about registration lapsing (you only have to renew a registration in New York and a couple of it's surrounding counties).

He also asks how, and by whom it is used. Why would this matter? Is this so that he can say, "No one in my administration has a concealed carry permit" when he and his liberal Congress attempt to pass a federal ban on Concealed Carry, or pass a federal ban on "shall issue" laws.

His website (this link is provided as proof of source material only. I personally discourage people from reading lies and unconstitutional promises) makes it clear that he wants to create a "permanent" "assault weapon's ban" -- in other words, a permanent ban on all firearms that are not single shot.

His website states he wishes to make sure all gun's are child-proof-- In other words, he wants to create legislation so restrictive as to eliminate all guns currently owned by law-abiding citizens in the United States.

The President-Elect LIED out-right on his website, by saying the Tiahart amendment keeps law-enforcement from accessing gun-trace information. The Tiahart amendment actually RESTRICTS trace information to ONLY law-enforcement for bona-fide investigations, rather than allowing anyone and everyone from accessing the database. The President-Elect states he will repeal the Tiahart amendment.

Bottom-line- this President-Elect is the most Anti-Gun liberal we have ever elected. With the liberal majority in the House and a possible super-majority in the Senate, soon there may be nothing to stop him.

Our only hope, is to Save Saxby Chamblis and prevent the liberal super-majority in the Senate.

Attacking Ammunition

Since The Court has said gun ownership is a RIGHT, the Left has decided to go after our ammunition.

In the last couple of days, a report has surface from the CDC and North Dakota Department of Health regarding eating wild game that was shot with lead projectiles. North Dakota has issued cautions on wild game, but the state of Wyoming said they find nothing significant in the study.

Some in the MSM(and on left-wing anti-gun sites which I have a policy that I will not link to) are claiming that the report says that eating game causes increase lead in the blood.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation disagrees with what the MSM is saying. This is from their press release on this study:
A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study on human lead levels of hunters in North Dakota has confirmed what hunters throughout the world have known for hundreds of years, that consuming game harvested with traditional ammunition poses absolutely no health risk to people, including children, and that the call to ban lead ammunition was and remains a scare tactic being pushed by anti-hunting groups to forward their political agenda.

Fortunately, the facts seem to get in the way of what the MSM and Anti-gun crowd would like us to believe. The MSM and Left are playing with numbers to make the numbers show what they want.

The report states that a lead level (Pb) higher than 10.0 micrograms/deciliter is not healthy. The geometric mean lead level of the entire population of the US is 1.67.

According to this study the geometric mean Pb (lead) in micrograms/deciliter for those adults who consumed venison was 1.27. HOWEVER, the Pb for those who lived in houses built before 1977 was 1.31, house before 1946 was 1.39. Therefore, can't we say that living in a house built before 1977 is a greater risk for increase Serum Pb than eating game?

Further, the Pb of those who only had a High School Education was 1.57 and High School drop-outs (those who did NOT have education higher than high-school) was 1.95!!! So, can we conclude that College prevents elevated Pb in the Blood? Post hoc ergo propter hoc.

The study also appears to show that those who had been eating venison for 10 years or more, had lower Pb levels than those eating for only a year or less (-0.114 decrease from those who had only eaten venison for one year) I wonder how that works? The more venison you eat, the lower your Pb levels are?

It does not appear that his study has been peer reviewed, and it certainly seems as though Wyoming is right, there is nothing significant related to eating of game. It IS likely that other factors are causing the increases that are seen and eating wild game is just coincidental. It should be noted that there was ONE person in the study with lead levels at about 9.86, which is about 9 times higher than the group mean. In other words, this one person could certainly affect the study.

Just because one thing follows another, it does necessarily mean that the one thing is caused by the other. The author of the study seems to have forgotten that.

Save Saxby!!!


It appears that Senator Saxby Chambliss, Republican from the State of Georgia will be heading to a run-off election because he has not gotten a majority (50% +1) of votes in his re-election bid.

This is a seat that Republicans MUST save.
Currently the Senate make up is 57 Democrat (or Democratic Caucus) and 40 Republican with 3 seats, including Chambliss', outstanding. The three seats are Sen. Stevens of Alaska, who was recently convicted of corruption (although he plans to appeal), Sen. Coleman of Minnesota, who is barely ahead of Al Franken and headed for a recount, and Sen. Chambliss.

In Alaska, they are still counting, and victory is not certain. In Minnesota, the recount could go either way. In both these situations, there is nothing that anyone can do. The votes have been cast.

But Georgia is another story. This run-off elections gives us a last chance to STOP a Democrat Super-Majority. Currently, the ONLY thing that can be done to stop Democrat extreme leftist laws, is a Republican filibuster. However, if the Democrats gain 60 seats, the game is up. There will be NOTHING that anyone can do to stop them.

I challenge ALL my readers and Fellow Bloggers to contribute just $10 to the Chambliss Campaign. That is a small amount-- less than what you would pay at Starbucks for two venti mocha's and a danish! Please remember that ANY size contribution will help!

The Democrats are going to pull out all stops. The "Obama Machine," Unions and every liberal special interest group will be doing everything possible to defeat Sen. Chambliss. The country just went from 470 Congressional races to 1. The Democrats will not just ignore this race. This may be the last chance we have to save our Republic from a leftist onslaught.

Save Saxby!!!

UPDATE: Hot Air gives another reason why Saving Saxby may be our only hope!


South Park and My First Good Laugh Post Election

Wednesday, November 5, Comedy Central aired the South Park episode, "About Last Night..." It is probably the best South Park of this season. It was hilarious, and gave me my first laugh since election night. It was definately topical, and definately timely.
I especially enjoyed the Obama supports getting carried away. Keep in mind that the creators of South Park are equal opportunity offenders. However, the show definately has a right-wing slant.
This episode is a must see. Below is a short clip from the show. The full episode can be watched here

First Moves by President-Elect

President-elect Obama tapped Rep. Rahm Emanuel to serve as his White House Chief of Staff today. Rep. Emanuel also served under President Clinton.

Rep. Emanuel is certainly a "die-hard" partisan and is a hard-core liberal based on his voting record.

We will just have to wait and see if President-Elect Obama's other choices are as partisan, or if he is really going to reach across the aisle like he has said he would.

Wall Street did react today, though, to the election, and the reaction was not good. The drop was the largest post election drop in history. Is "the Street" betting on economic failure by the new President? Are they anticipating future economic disasters?

The good news is that gas prices are down. But, back in March, the Iranian government said that oil prices would be down in advance of the US Elections.

I guess we will just have to wait to see what tomorrow brings.

What Now?

So the results are in. It is 10:01 CST and California has just been called for Sen. Obama, making him the next President-Elect of the United States. Next month, the Electoral College will vote, and the House will validate the results, making Sen. Obama the President-Elect. On January 20, 2009, Sen. Obama will become the 44th President of the United States.

I did not vote for Senator Obama. I do not believe in his political views. I believe he is too liberal. I believe his views border on socialism. I do not believe he is remotely qualified to be President of the United States. However, the electorate has spoken. Perhaps we can put away the thinking that this is a racist country.

Now the question becomes what now for the Republican Party?

It is time for the Republican Party to reflect on who we are, where we have come from and where we must go from here.

It was a Republican President who signed the Emancipation Proclamation. It was a Republican Congress that passed the "Freedman's Bureau" and the first protections for African Americans. It was a Republican President that broke the back of the original "klan." It was a Republican President who was the first President to ask an African American to dinner in the White House. It was a Republican President who started the Conservation movement. It was a Republican President who pushed through legislation that guaranteed clean water and safe food. It was a Republican President who taught us that it was o.k. to be a patriot and wave the Red, White and Blue and that America is the "Shining City on a Hill". It was a Republican President who made the final, great stand against the Soviets, and told them to "tear down this wall." It was a Republican President who told us from ground zero in New York, "I hear you... and the people that tore these buildings down are going to hear all of us soon."

But, these things are our past. Now we must look to our future and where we must go.

We have lost our way as a party, and in losing our way, we have lost not only the White House, but we have lost additional seats in the House and the Senate. We must somehow find our way again. We must return to being the party of responsible reform. We must return to being the party of small government. We must return to being the party of fiscal responsibility.

For now, though, the ball is in the court of the Democrats. The Democrats have control, in the House, the Senate and the White House. They can no longer blame the Republican Party for their failures. Now we will see who and what they really are.

God save the President of the United States. God save the United States of America.
