Terrorist attack in Galax? Bad drugs? Or just a case of two more mind-numbed supporters of Barack Obama doing that which he prompted* them to do?
Campaign workers attacked
By Ben Bomberger, Galax Gazette

Two people were arrested Monday afternoon after an altercation led to five Republican campaign workers being sprayed with Mace at their headquarters in Galax.

Galax Police Chief Rick Clark said officers were dispatched shortly before 1 p.m. to the Galax Republican headquarters on East Grayson Street when a caller reported someone had sprayed office workers with Mace.

Responding officers arrested Daniel Cason Meinecke, 29, and Cara Annis Hindman, 26, both of Galax.

While [Galax Republican Chairman Mike] Stevens was unsure if the couple came into the building planning to start an altercation, he said it seemed evident they were. (link)

If only they had been more patient. A year from now, when Barack Obama is president, the private ownership of firearms is banned, the people are completely defenseless, and that national security force is in place, the government will be put at the disposal of nitwits like these two to intimidate the Democrats' opposition. Once the security stormtroopers come back from Hugo Chavez's Venezuela where they'll receive their training, that is.

America, 2008. May God have mercy.

I Have a Better Idea

Rather than this ...

Former Gov. Wilder urges Kaine to keep polls open later

... why doesn't former Governor Wilder "urge" voters to get off their dead asses and go to the polls earlier?

A 13 hour window of opportunity
ain't enough?

McCain Does Streisand

Look out, Babs. This guy could easily take your job.

The following is absolutely hilarious. I'm still not certain it's McCain doing the singing - and the zinging - but ya gotta watch it:

He's got a future as a comedian if his day job doesn't pan out.

So We're Back Where We Started

Democrats went nuts in 2000 because of the antiquated methods most localities were continuing to utilize on election day for the casting of ballots. (Well, actually they went nuts because an ignorant Republican beat their man for president, or stole the election depending on your level of paranoia and/or drug use.) Hanging chads and missed punches and all that. So they decided that we needed an upgrade of the machinery used to record those ballots.

Hundreds of million dollars later (and another election win for the dummy) and where are we?

Plan C: 18th century technology:
Paper Ballot Has Md.'s, Va.'s Vote
2 States Plan to Ditch Electronic Machines, Part of a Rapid National Reversal
By Christian Davenport, Washington Post Staff Writer

Goodbye, electronic voting. Farewell, fancy touch screen. Maryland and Virginia are going old school after Tuesday's election.

Maryland will scrap its $65 million electronic system and go back to paper ballots in time for the 2010 midterm elections -- and will still be paying for the abandoned system until 2014. In Virginia, localities are moving to paper after the General Assembly voted last year to phase out electronic voting machines as they wear out.

The trend reflects a national movement away from electronic voting machines. (link)
And if this doesn't produce the desired result, Democrats will revert to 17th century methods and simply declare their guy king.

For the love of God.

Hmmm

I thought Bush and Cheney were the ones who were spying on innocent Americans and that Obama was going to bring ... change.

This kind of change we don't need. From Investor's Business Daily:
Ohio Democrats refused to act on ACORN's massive vote fraud. Yet they have time to scour the private records of Joe the Plumber. No wonder Barack Obama finds the Constitution an inconvenience.

Joe Wurzelbacher (also known as Joe the Plumber) has learned there's a price to pay for being the one to get Obama to admit that he has a socialist dream to "spread the wealth." Not only are you thrust into the public eye, you get the privilege of having government officials who support Obama rifle through private files looking for dirt on you.

Helen Jones-Kelley, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and a maxed-out contributor to the Obama campaign, has confirmed that she approved the check on Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher after the Oct. 15 presidential debate.

According to the Columbus-Dispatch, at least four state computer checks on Wurzelbacher were conducted shortly after Republican John McCain frequently brought up "Joe the Plumber" during the final presidential debate. (link)

As for all those people who have been whining about the loss of Constitutional freedoms since George Bush took control in 2001, silence will be the response to this story. Indifference. Joe The Plumber deserved to be investigated. And Obama is a different kind of politician who only has our best interests at heart.

Hmmm II

The Roanoke Times is no longer for sale. Reason given. May even be close to accurate:

Landmark halts sale of newspapers

The reason that was released to the public: "The credit crunch and tough economic times."

Yeah.

So Obama Wants To Spread The Wealth

Maybe he should start by sharing a few bucks of that $6 million he's made off the sale of his self-congratulatory books with his impoverished aunt in Boston:
Found in a rundown Boston estate: Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango
By James Bone, Rob Crilly, and Ben Macintyre, The Times of London

Barack Obama has lived one version of the American Dream that has taken him to the steps of the White House. But a few miles from where the Democratic presidential candidate studied at Harvard, his Kenyan aunt and uncle, immigrants living in modest circumstances in Boston, have a contrasting American story.

Zeituni Onyango, the aunt so affectionately described in Mr Obama’s best-selling memoir Dreams from My Father, lives in a disabled-access flat on a rundown public housing estate in South Boston. (link)
Why does this joker expect the rest of us to do for his aunt that which he refuses to do himself?

And why does it take a British newspaper to make the discovery that Obama's aunt is living in poverty here in the United States?

Why We Fight

Because those most in need can't fight for themselves:
Gun purchase glitch raises questions*
By Lee Williams, The News Journal

Delaware State Police stopped Alvina Vansickle from purchasing a .22-caliber pistol for self-defense because she was too old and a woman, said Superintendent Col. Thomas MacLeish.

The outrage that followed led to the revelation that Delaware State Police had been keeping lists of gun buyers for years; state law requires them to destroy these records after 60 days.

Without so much as a traffic ticket, the 81-year-old Lewes resident should have sailed through the mandatory state police background check when she tried to buy a Taurus revolver from Charlie Steele's Lewes gun shop last August. (link)
Too old. Wrong sex. Too poor. Too black. This is why we don't let them decide.

An absolute shock and outrage. Will the feminists make their voice heard? When pigs fly.

* A "glitch" occurs when the authorities lose her application. The intentional refusal to issue a permit is not a "glitch." It's a willful act that reflects their arrogance and condescension.
