WAY Over Played Race Card. Not Working Anymore
Aspirin: Not Just for Headaches Anymore
DLA For Sunday 103011
IWA for Sunday 103011


So this IS the Day before Halloween, 2011. Do you remember when you were a kid? Today was one of those days that seemed to last forever. There you were, Costume hanging up or in the room. WAITING for Tomorrow to come. You couldn't wait to put it on, go out, AFTER DARK!!! Of course, there WAS all the FREE Candy. Yes, I'm talking about Trick Or Treating.

Today, unfortunately, is a different day and age. You have to be careful out there. Me and Joshua, well, NOW, me and Both my Boys, will be going to the same Neighborhood we have been going to for like 5 years. Josh a Dinosaur, and Eli a Candy Corn. We go to the same place every year because EVERYONE in the neighborhood participates. REAL Candy, decorations, Haunted Houses. ETC. Everyone pretty much knows everyone. There are even a couple of Sheriffs that live there. So it's pretty safe.

However, if you are new to the area, and even if your not, here are some tips for you.

Before you go out, go ON. That's Online. Check the Sex Offender Registry in your area, or the area that you will be Treat or Treating in. If you find some, OBVIOUSLY avoid those residence.

Of COURSE, either YOU, your Spouse, or ADULT Sibling, need to go with them.

Know were you are going. Map it out. Or at lease KNOW the Streets you want to "hit." Do not let your Kids talk you into going down a Dark Street that you may not be Familiar with.

Always avoid dark houses. House that do not have the Outdoor Light on. This is an Indication that either they are out of Candy, or want NOTHING to do with the whole thing. Only go to those Houses that have CLEAR signs that they are Participating.

STAY OUTSIDE!! Make sure your Kids don’t go inside ANYONE'S House. Even if they are invited in. Actually, ESPECIALLY if they are invited in. They can get their Candy at the Door. Unless you KNOW the People, there is no reason whatsoever that your Kids go inside.

Not only are Glow Sticks, Light Sabers, and Flashlights fun, they can save your life. Make sure you have something to alert Vehicles of your presents. They may HONESTLY not see you.

Of course, and finally, an oldie but goodie. CHECK YOUR KID'S CANDY!!! ONLY allow prepackaged store bought Candy. No Homemade Fudge, Cookies, Brownies, ETC. Sorry to those that love to Bake and Share. It is just a different time, and Trust in Strangers is harder and harder to come by.

The most important of all the Rules? HAVE FUN!!!! Just be safe.

Going to fill my cup. Be right back.
Peter

WAY Over Played Race Card. Not Working Anymore

Use to be people trembled in fear. Now? They sigh. Even Laugh.

Hey folks,

Can't win an Intellectual Debate? Call the person a Racist. Can't convince someone to see something your way? Call them a Racist. Can't get a Job. Racist. Can't get a Loan, Racist. Get stuck in traffic. Racist. Fast food forget your Fries? RACIST!!!! You were late getting to work because your RACIST Alarm Clock didn't WANT you to be there. Racist, Racist, Racist, Racist.

There USE to be a time when this ACTUALLY meant something. When someone was accused of being Racist, well, a lot of times they WERE. Use to be reserved for only those that actually showed SIGNS of being one, that one would be called one. But the Left have over played it. The Liberals have worn it out. There is nothing left of it. Well, for the most part. Use to be people trembled in fear. Now? They sigh. Even Laugh. The ONLY ones that seem to still fear this is some in the Republican Leadership. But they had better get over it fast, or THEY will be looking for a new Job as well.

I've said this before. I'll say it again. I will no longer argue with someone who plays the Race Card. I will no longer respond to any allegations of me being a Racist. I will no longer entertain little minds that think that I will bow to their stupidity.

Seriously, think about this. The Black "Leaders" have been fighting for equality for YEARS. However, when true Equality is accomplished, they denounce it. In other words, Bill Cosby, Clarence Thomas, and of course Herman Cain. These are just three examples of Blacks who have "Broke Through" or became equal to the "Whites." They are attacked. They are called Sell Outs, Tokens, Uncle Tom, even House "Ns." {Sounds like Triggers} So they can't even win with their own? Stay down? Because the Whitey is keeping you down. Rise up? You are nothing more that a House N.

Then if you are White, YOU are the Racist. Lets see if I can follow this. Don't like Obama? Racist. Object to his Policies? Racist. Tea Party Racist. Blacks in the Tea Party? Sell Outs, Tokens, Uncle Tom, even House "Ns." {Sounds like Triggers} They will never Vote for a Black guy. Along comes Herman Cain? According to The Weekly Standard - MSNBC Analyst: GOP Sees Herman Cain as a 'Black Man Who Knows His Place' 5:01 PM, Oct 28, 2011 • By MICHAEL WARREN

On Martin Bashir's television program this afternoon, Democratic strategist and MSNBC analyst Karen Finney said that Republicans are supporting Herman Cain because of his race:
What? No wait. We will NEVER Vote for a Black Man, but we are supporting a Black Man because he is Black? Yup. Oh it gets better folks. {Laughing}

"One of the things about Herman Cain is, I think that he makes that white Republican base of the party feel okay, feel like they are not racist because they can like this guy," Finney said. "I think he giving that base a free pass. And I think they like him because they think he's a black man who knows his place. I know that's harsh, but that's how it sure seems to me."

"Thank you for spelling that out," Bashir responded.
{Laughing, banging hand on desk} He KNOWS his PLACE? He is RUNNING for the most important Job in the Free World. If he wins, he will BE the most Powerful person in the Free World. It doesn't bother me that he is Black. I support him and if he gets the Nomination, I will VOTE for him. I OPPOSE Obama because of his POLICIES. Stupid, FAILED, Liberal Policies. It has NOTHING to do with HIS Race.

This isn't the first time liberals have made this kind of charge about Cain and his supporters. During an online production of NBC's Meet the Press this week, Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland said white voters support Cain to show they aren't racist. “I think when [members of the Tea Party] can vote for a Herman Cain and hear him say the things that he says they feel like, ‘Well, you know, I can, I support this guy and...so it shows that I’m not racist and I’m supportive,'" Cummings told host David Gregory.

Liberal comedienne Janeane Garafalo told Current TV host Keith Olbermann earlier this month that Cain is popular with Republicans because it "hides the racist element" of the party. Watch that video here.
So don't Vote for a Black Guy because you are Racist. Vote FOR a Black Guy, because you are Racist and trying to hide it. What a bunch of BRAIN DEAD, Liberal Mumbo Jumbo.

I've got news for you. I do not like Obama. I would NEVER Vote FOR Obama. I would not do it to feel better about myself. I would not do it to prove a point. I would not do it on the Plain. I would not do it in the Rain. I would not do it in my head. I would not do it in my Bed. I would not Vote for him Today. I would not Vote for him ANY day. I do not like Obama and his plans, I do not like him says Pete I am.

If someone was a True Racist out there. They would not Vote for Obama. They would not Vote for Cain. They would not Vote for Micky Mouse. They would NEVER Vote for ANY Black person. It would not matter who's team they are on. It really is not hard to understand. We will not Vote for Obama because of WHO he is, and his POLICIES. Not the Color of his Skin. We WILL Vote for Cain, because of WHO he is and his POLICIES. Not the Color of his Skin. I understand, the Race Card is all you got. But it is worn out and over played. And it IS just that simple.

Aspirin: Not Just for Headaches Anymore

We all know about the Aspirin and Heart Connection. But Cancer?

Hey folks,

In Today's Health and Science Segment, I want to talk about Aspirin. Back in the Day, you got a Head Ache, you took Aspirin. Nowadays, when you get a Head Ache you have an array of choices. ALL claiming to be faster, stronger, and more long lasting than Aspirin. Some you need a Script for, some not. Some will make you Loopy, TRUST ME. Some will numb you. But MOST have MAJOR Side Effects.

If you have been around here for a Bit, you will remember when I had the Swine Flu. Or at least that is what they thought. I have NEVER been THAT sick for THAT long in my life. REALLY. I was Butt Naked for TEN DAYS Straight. Josh went to Grandmas. Laura had to keep working. So most of the time I was alone. The Doctors gave me this Liquid Controlled Substance Stuff. Not going to name it here. But I took it ONE time. ONCE was enough for me. My Wife, Niece, and Son Joshua, went to Miami for a Photo Shoot for a Foreign Magazine thing. I took this stuff and went to lay down. I kept hearing stuff. I would hear Texts. The Phone Ring. Nothing. No one there. Then I heard someone walking around the House. I went out to see who it was, No one. Not a single Soul. Once that wore off, I flushed it. That was more than enough for me.

At the time, I also had a handful of Pills to take multiple time a day. I ended up taking the Antibiotic, and ASPRIN for the Aches and Pains. I turned out just fine. No more hearing Sh,,uh, stuff.

So we know about Aspirin. Back in the day, it came in a Power form. It worked QUICK. Now in Pill form, they have learned that it has MANY Benefits, and very little draw backs. It also costs next to NOTHING. A while back, we learned that Aspirin could help those having a Heart Attack. Scientists and Doctors have discovered that an Aspirin Regimen is VERY Beneficial in so many ways.

Aspirin is used to relieve mild to moderate pain; reduce fever, redness, and swelling; and to help prevent blood from clotting. It is used to relieve discomfort caused by numerous medical problems, including headache, infections, and arthritis. It is also used to reduce the risk of a second heart attack or stroke. Larger doses of aspirin are used to treat gout.
So Aspirin GOOD. Side Effects?

Although side effects from aspirin are not common, they can occur. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

•upset stomach
•vomiting
•stomach pain

If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

•ringing in the ears
•loss of hearing
•bloody or black stools
•wheezing
•difficulty breathing
•dizziness
•mental confusion
•drowsiness
•skin rash
However, ALL of these are EXTREMELY Rare and most of the time, MOST people will not have any Problems. HOWEVER. With ANY Medication, PLEASE SEE YOUR DOCTOR FIRST. Now I know, I know, some Doctors are in bed with Big Drug, and some OVER PRESCRIBE expensive and unnecessary Medications. So a Second Opinion may be desirable. But if you start taking Aspirin, and you experience any of these, see a Doctor right away.

Today, there is even MORE good news for you about Aspirin. We all know about the Aspirin and Heart Connection. But Cancer? Yup. Cancer. According to Boston.com - Aspirin slashes cancer rate for those with hereditary risk Afp/Relaxnews / October 28, 2011

PARIS-AFP) - Long-term, daily doses of aspirin led to a fall of some 60 percent in cases of colorectal cancer among people with an inherited risk of this disease, the journal The Lancet reported on Friday.
That's right. Cheap, easily assessable, ASPIRIN.

The trial -- considered to be broad in sample and long in duration -- confirms evidence elsewhere that aspirin has a protective effect against cancer of the colon and rectum, it said.

The study enrolled patients with Lynch Syndrome, a fault in genes charged with cellular repair that leads to colorectal and other cancers.

Lynch Syndrome occurs in around one in 1,000 people and accounts for about one in 30 cases of bowel cancer, The Lancet said.

A total of 861 patients were randomly designated to take either two aspirins daily, for a dose of 600 mg, or a harmless dummy pill, known as a placebo, for at least two years. They were then regularly given colon exams.

When the data from this study were first examined in 2007, there was no difference in colorectal cancer incidence between the groups.

But things changed when the researchers checked again a few years later.

By this time, there had been 34 cases of colorectal cancer in the placebo group but 19 in the aspirin group -- a reduction in incidence of 44 percent.

The doctors then looked further at those patients (60 percent of the total) who had been taking the aspirin or the placebo beyond the two-year minimum.

In this sub-group, the figures were even more impressive.

There were 23 cancers in the placebo group, but only 10 in the aspirin group, amounting to a fall of 63 percent. The difference began to be seen after five years.

In the light of this discovery, further research has been launched to see what is the best dosage and duration of aspirin treatment.

"In the meantime, clinicians should consider aspirin prescription for all individuals judged to be at high risk of colorectal cancer, but taking appropriate measures to minimise adverse effects," says the paper, headed by John Burn, a professor of clinical genetics at Newcastle University, northeastern England.

Last year, a study also published in The Lancet, found that rates of cancer of the colon, prostate, lung, brain and throat were all reduced by daily aspirin use. For the colon, the risk over 20 years declined by 40 percent.

Many doctors recommend regular use of aspirin to lower the risk of heart attack, clot-related strokes and other blood flow problems. A downside of extended daily use is the risk of stomach problems.
Which we just discussed. Not a big threat. So now Aspirin could be a BIG Positive Player in the Fight against Cancer? GREAT! I think I'm going look into this myself.

I wasn't going to mention this. But I am. My Favorite Morning Show, The Conversation with Rich Stevens and Dave McBride were discussing this, this past Thursday, Friday? Friday Morning. {Where I got the interest in talking about Aspirin today} Rich was saying that he thinks that there is already a Cure for Cancer out there, but it is being suppressed because Cancer is a BILLION Dollar, if not TRILLION Dollar, Business. That is just a Fact. WAY back on Sunday, July 01, 2007, I was talking about a Possible Cure For HIV. OPNTalk - H.S. Potential cure for HIV I was answering a Question that News Dude Dave actually ASKED just this past Friday. Basically WORD for WORD.

“That is completely ridiculous Pete. No one wants to keep Cancer and HIV around. They are trying to find cures for them. You cannot say it’s about money. They cured those diseases of the past. Why would they not do it today?”

Excellent question. Think about it. You already know the answer. Those diseases of the past were CONTAGIOUS. A lot of them through the air. Cancer? HIV is contagious, but not on as broad a scale. In a lot of cases, HIV, it contracted by ones ACTIONS. Get the point?
Then, Remember back on Sunday, November 29, 2009 I posted this. OPNTalk - New Method Discovered To Kill Cancer I said this.

Of course it can. Why is this not making Mainstream News? Why are there not FAILED Government Programs that are being shut down and the financing of these FAILED programs being diverted to THIS Program immediately. Why other than the fact, most, most likely, have never heard of this, are there not PRIVATE Investors lining up to fund this?

Think of the savings in Healthcare. No more long term care. No more, in the long run, no more or REDUCED need for Chemo. No more long term Medication need? A person, in the future, maybe able to go in after diagnosis, have this disc implanted, and their own bodies can heal themselves. Think of the Billions Saved in,,,Oh. Perhaps I just answered my own question.
So I'm with Rich on this one. And the MANY of you out there that wonder the same thing. Something as simple and cheap as Aspirin, may be a MAJOR Player in the fight against Cancer? A few Cents vs, a couple of Hundred Dollars per Pill? This is GREAT NEWS!!!! Seriously. Like I said, being in a high risk category myself for BOTH Heart Disease and Cancer, I'm going to seriously look into this further.

DLA For Sunday 103011

So NOT help out those that want you dead? Novel concept.

Hey folks,

So you have someone who has SAID, "I want you DEAD!" You have someone who is currently giving someone who IS attacking you, and wants you dead, MONEY, Weapons, and Intelligence, to aid them in their mission. You have someone who wants your Friend DEAD. So what do you do? Help them out. Yeah, just give them business, which gives them money, that they give to those trying to kill you.

Of course you don't. But WE do. As a Nation, we do. However, there is a Democrat in NY that gets it. According to Iran Focus / Reuters - NY bill seeks ban on companies investing in Iran

NEW YORK Oct 27 (Reuters) - Companies and individuals that invest in Iran's energy sector would be barred from doing business with New York state and its counties, cities and towns under a bill proposed by the state Assembly speaker.

States, local governments and private institutions should do "everything possible" to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, according to a draft copy of the bill proposed by Speaker Sheldon Silver, which cites Iran's "illicit nuclear activities" and work on "unconventional weapons."
Yes I'll TAKE IT! I know the guy is a Democrat. In this case, he is a SANE Democrat. I know nothing about this guy. But I do know that in this case, the guy is right on the money.

The proposed bill is modeled after a similar proposal in California. New York has in the past tackled international issues by threatening to sell stakes held by its pensions in public companies.

An investment in Iran's natural gas, oil or nuclear industries is defined broadly in the draft bill, as "a commitment or contribution of funds or property, a loan or other extension of credit and the entry into or renewal of a contract for goods and service."
Again, we do not need Iranian or any other's Oil or Natural Gas. If the Government would just get out of the way, we would be self sufficient. Just the Keystone Pipeline would supply 95 percent of all our Liquid Fuel needs. Natural Gas is exploding, pardon the pun, all over the Country. If we just got Government out of the way, we would need not worry about one DROP of our Energy Needs coming from the Middle East. Obama and Crew could allow and assist the Muslim Brotherhood completely take over the Middle East. All we would have to worry about is Nukes. Get the right people in power in 2012, work with our Allies, and we would not have to worry about that either. Just a side note here.

Individuals would be subject to the ban if they provide goods or services of at least $20 million or an individual "provides oil or liquefied natural gas tankers, or products used to construct or maintain pipelines used to transport oil or liquefied natural gas," according to the draft.

If enacted, New York's Office of General Services would have to review 50 companies that California has identified as possibly qualifying for such a curb.

The list includes heavyweight public and national firms: BHP Billiton , China National Petroleum Corp, Hyundai Motor Company, Hyundai Heavy Industries , Indian Oil Corporation , LUKOIL , Norsk Hydro ASA , Petroleos de Venezuela, Sinopec Corp and Total SA .
I hope this passes. I really do. I hope Speaker Sheldon Silver stands tough here. Congratulations Speaker Sheldon Silver, for having the ability to not only see the TRUTH, but the courage to stand up for it, you are the Winner of the Display of Logic Award for Sunday, October 30th, 2011. It is RARE for someone on your side to actually look at a situation, recognized what you are seeing, and stand up for what is right. Good Job. Now stand tough. You are going to have some negative feedback from some on your own side. You may even be pressured to back off. Don't do it. Stand up for what you believe in. For what you believe in is the right thing to do.

IWA for Sunday 103011

Offended? Don't go there.

Hey folks,

Time to wrap things up with the Idiot of the Week. Ever go to a new Restaurant? You pull into the Drive way to Mac's Pig Snout BBQ. You go up to the Door and you see the Menu. Yup. Pork. Pork, Pork, and more Pork. You do not eat Pork. What do you do?

NO!!! You go in. You not only go in, you go in and tell them that eating Pork offends you, and that YOU demand that they serve you a Tofu Salad. They say "Hey Buddy, we don't sell Tofu here. The Name of the place should have told you all you need to know. Mac's Pig Snout BBQ. Then the Menu should have shown you that we are a Pork Place and we don't sell no Tofu here. Beat it." So what do you do?

NO!!! You Sue. Yup. You SUE. You say that you were offended and that you want the Courts to FORCE Mac's Pig Snout BBQ, to start selling Tofu. That shouldn't be that difficult. Right? But HERE is the problem. YOU. Not the Restaurant. YOU. They advertise what they are. They post a Menu for you to check out. They serve what they serve. Go somewhere else.

That is what most people do. I'm not a Big Pork person so I most likely would never eat at Mac's Pig Snout BBQ. I'll go to "Leftys" in a heartbeat. I do actually quite often. I'm happy. So is Mac. He gets enough business from people who eat there. So what is the Problem?

In the real world, there is no Problem. But in the Left Wing Land of Silliness, this would be a HUGH issue. What do you think when I say Catholic University? Yeah. A Private CATHOLIC University. You know, Christ, Crosses, Mary, and the Bible? You have to Pay them to go there. A lot. So now lets say you are not Catholic? So what. If you want to Pay them to go there and you want to learn what they are teaching, then GO. If not. DON'T GO.

Well, it turns out that there is one Idiot, that feels that the Catholic University needs to change so as to NOT offend Muslims. I kid you not. According to Hot Air - Human-rights complaint seeks secular praying room for Muslims at … Catholic University

The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.

The investigation alleges that Muslim students “must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism – e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.”
That's right. Muslims are offended,,,uh,,wait?

At this point it’s unclear whether any actual Muslim students at Catholic University are complaining at all.
So congratulations to our Winner of the IWA, his name? John Banzhaf.

The complaint was filed by John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School. Banzhaf has been involved in previous litigation against the school involving the same-sex residence halls. He also alleged in his complaint involving Muslim students that women at the university were being discriminated against. You can read more on those allegations by clicking here.

Banzhaf said some Muslim students were particularly offended because they had to meditate in the school’s chapels “and at the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.”

“It shouldn't be too difficult somewhere on the campus for the university to set aside a small room where Muslims can pray without having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus,” he told Fox News.
{Sigh} I'm not going to Pay $20 to $50 K a Year to go to a Muslim School. Why? I'm not Islamic. I'm not going to go into a Gay Bar, wait no I can't say that. I did with friends. But I'm not going in there to look for a date. Why? I'm not GAY. I'm not going to Mac's. I do not care for Pork. But IF I did, say, decide to go to a Jewish University, I would not be offended by the Star of David on the Wall. Why? It's a Jewish University.

Is there a clamoring in the Gay Community or the Muslim Community to go to the Catholic University? I highly doubt it. Sorry John Banzhaf. Both your idiocies and your hate is showing. You are without a doubt the Idiot of the Week. We all have choices in life. It really is a simple concept. Offended? Don't go there. But I know, you really don't care. Just attempting to make a buck and get 15 minutes of Fame. Here it is. You are the Winner of the IWA. Would you like to go to Church this Sunday? You could be my Guest. Of course, I'll let them know you are coming and that they should remove all Bibles prior to your Arrival. Deal? I wouldn't want you offended or anything. Idiot.

First Against, Now FOR War? Liberalism Explained

"So many things wrong with this. Why is this not bigger news. Now we have "Hunter Killers?" Is time ticking? Why are we even there?"

Hey folks,

Continued...

"Did you see that we now have a Base in Ethiopia? Not just a Base, a "Hunter Killer" Base. In the Post; "The Air Force has invested millions of dollars to upgrade an airfield in Arba Minch, Ethiopia, where it has built a small annex to house a fleet of drones that can be equipped with Hellfire missiles and satellite-guided bombs." and it says "The compound is about half an acre in size and is surrounded by high fences, security screens and lights on extended poles. The U.S. military personnel and contractors eat at a cafe in the passenger terminal, where they are served American-style food, according to travelers who have been there.

Arba Minch is located about 300 miles south of Addis Ababa and about 600 miles east of the Somali border. Standard models of the Reaper have a range of about 1,150 miles, according to the Air Force.

The MQ-9 Reaper, known as a “hunter killer,” is manufactured by General Atomics and is an advanced version of the Predator, the most common armed drone in the Air Force’s fleet." Why is this not bigger news? Then again, why is it news at all? Secret Base, oh, located here? But this president has killed leaders and invaded more countries than Bush ever thought of. Why no outcry? now we have "Hunter Killers?" When will the anti-war crazies going to wake up and start calling for Obamaman to be arrested and charge with war crimes?" I don't get it. I was against War with Bush. I am even MORE against War with Obama. Really, is it as simple as he's black so ok? I really don't get it."


WELL, CL, why not tell us what you really think. {Laughing} First? Hunter Killers? I think that's a reference to the original Terminator Movie. The Big automated Flying Drones. Uh, we have had them for a LONG time now. Maybe not to that SCALE, but we have had them.

Second, I get your point. Secret Base, Located HERE, See map and Blueprint. {Smile} They do this all the time. I also get that nothing negative will be reported in reference to the now, what 5 Wars? I do not believe that it is because Obama is Black. Well, mostly. But that He is a Liberal and HE CONTROLS the Press. He says, they report. It really is just that simple. There is no more Free Press. It is Corporate News that is Funded by a Couple of people who Control the Content. It is ALL to drive an agenda.

See, the problem you, and many others have in trying to understand Liberals and the NEW Liberalism is this, you are trying to understand it Logically. You are looking at yourself, and saying How can they believe this, act like that, whatever. The problem is simple. YOU have Core Beliefs. A set of Standards. You believe in Right and Wrong. YOU believe that we should Champion what is Right, and fight against what is Wrong. You believe that what is Right, is ALWAYS Right, no matter who or what is involved. And what is Wrong is ALWAYS Wrong, no matter who or what is involved. It is WRONG for a Liberal or a Conservative to Lie, Cheat, or Steal. It is Wrong for a Liberal or a Conservative to Invade another Country, start Wars, or get into Wars, that have nothing to do with us. You feel it is WRONG for a Liberal or a Conservative to Spend money we do not have. You believe that WHOMEVER is in Office, should adhere to the Constitution. The Rule of Law. You have your Core Beliefs, and it matters NOT to you, who or what is involved. It is what it is.

Liberals do NOT have core beliefs. They just don't. They were against the War, because a Republican was in Office. They were against Wire Taps, Gitmo, Homeland Security, and what they CLAIMED to be Unconstitutional, while a Republican was in Office. But the Truth is, they really were not against ANY of it. They were simply using whatever they could to attempt to get the Republican OUT of Office. Now that they have a Liberal in Office, that put us in THREE more Wars, kept Wire Taps, Gitmo Open, and INCREASED the Size and the Scope of Homeland Security, they ignore it. Why? Because the Truth is, they really don't care about ANY OF IT. They only care about Power, Control, and of course, all that Money, as long as it is THEM who have it.

I know, I know. It's not Logical. But that IS who these people are. Evident by their LACK of concern now. This is why it is so important to Vote these Idiots out of Power, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. And we have to do so in a BIG way. Only by sheer numbers can we save this Country and Repeal the Damage we have sustained. We can not afford 4 more years of this. I mean SURVIVE. This Country is in Trouble. There is only one fix for it. New Leadership. Period.

Don't give yourself a Headache CL. You can not apply Logic or Truth when trying to figure these Lunatics out. Just accept them for who and what they are, and understand, they MUST be Stopped.

All The Subsidies Will NOT Create Market

The most important fact left out.

Hey folks,

According to Carl Pope, Chairman, of the Sierra Club, we are losing the Green Revolution to places like China. He is not happy about that. He thinks it is unfair that they give all that money to THEIR Green Energy Manufactures, and we apparently, are not giving enough. According to Carl Pope, Chairman, of the Sierra Club, in the Huffy Posts yesterday:

There's no doubt the U.S. is losing the clean-energy race. In 2010 our level of investment in clean energy fell behind both China and Germany, with a growth rate that is 11th among the industrial nations. Last year, China gave $30 billion to its largest solar manufacturers, 20 times the amount that the United States gave, according to Jonathan Silver, former executive director of the U.S. Energy Department's loan program. As a result, in 2010 China sold more than half of the world's solar panels, and is now gearing up a similar effort to dominate global wind markets.
A, China HAS $30 Billion to throw away. We do not. What he HAVE thrown Money away, we have done so freely and even Joyfully, and we have NOTHING for it. B, our own President, who took over a Car Company and is PUSHING "Green Cars" is OUTSOURCING the Battery Manufacturing TO CHINA. We are GIVING them the Business on a Product NO ONE WANTS.

We are consistently losing both manufacturing and deployment leadership in clean-energy technologies that were pioneered and developed in the United States. That's simply not worth debating -- the interesting question is what should we do about it?
Uh, Manufacturing and Deployment to WHO? WHAT? Were is the Market?

OK. Remember OCAN? Looks look at this in the opposite way. Shall we? I create a Paint, that I SAY will save you hundreds, and in some cases thousands of Dollars. One Coat, all you need, EVER. However, the Price of my one can of OCAN is $1000.00 a Can. So, to paint something like a house, you would need to spend more than $6 to $10 Grand. Oh some out there would take the chance and buy it. But Working John and Mary, they will still buy the $50.00 a Can paint. They there will be others that ask, how do I know that it will last forever. If the idea is not believable, MANY will not even think about spending that money to TRY it out.

However, by me making this Product, one coat, ever, I can make the claim that I am saving the planet. Less garbage, less Paint. Less Fumes. ETC. I can now get into the Carbon Offset Business and sell offsets to others. Now the Government comes along and says, "We want in. We want to be seen as caring about the Planet." I say to the Government, "Well, no one is buying it, I may have to shut down." The Government then says, "No, never mind all that, here is $500 MILLION dollars. Just uh, you know, don't forget who loves you baby." However, just like Solyndra, if there is no one buying the Product, it does not matter how much money I have, how much Product I manufactured, there is NO WHERE to deploy it. Just like Solyndra, I may be tempted to take the money and run, attempting to cut my losses.

So this guy, Carl Pope, Chairman, of the Sierra Club, wants our government to give MORE money to a business so that they will SURVIVE, even though, there is NO MARKET for it. He is upset, and It's not fair, that China can give all this money away. It's just not fair. We need to do the same thing. In his Mind. Throw away more money we do NOT have.

Toward the end of his little rant here, he tells you the truth. He said this.

Manufacturing sits in the middle of a supply chain. You must invent wind-turbines before you can manufacture them, and you must have a market downstream before you can sell them. But if national policy makes this crucial middle link of manufacturing uncompetitive, then the whole supply chain will eventually shrink.
HOWEVER!!! The most important fact left out. Where is the DEMAND? There is NONE.

What we do have a Demand for, is what we already KNOW we have. That is what they World runs on. Our own, and the Worlds own, Natural Resources. Oil, Natural Gas, and Coal. With the advancement of Little Hitler {Ahmadinejad}, the Muslim Brotherhood taking over the entire Region, attempting to enact Sharia Law, which is a Stated Goal, one World under Sharia Law, our National Security is dwindling at light speed. Instead of throwing money away on what we Dream we could use, at the expense of what we KNOW we need, is insanity. With all this turmoil and chaos in the Middle East, we need stability here in this country. Not Dreams. Not a Supply of no Demand. But a Supply of what we HAVE a Demand for. This will cost us NOTHING. Just permission to go get it.

Time to Leave Afghanistan

Preview for Sunday 102311

Hey folks,

Happy Sunday to ya. {Laughing} Yes some of you are more observant than others. I DID Post a, whatever you call it. A Post saying that I would not be here for a bit. Some Personal stuff has come up that needs my attention. That hasn't changed. But I did find that I would have time to put the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk Blog together, so, I took it down. No you were not imagining it. {Smile}

So Happy Sunday to ya. Glad you stopped by. I AM your Provocateur of Thought, Peter Carlock, and this IS the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk Blog. Glad you stopped by for a Visit. As always, if YOU want to be a part of the OPNTalk Blog, or just say Hi, the Email is opntalk@gmail.com.

We actually have a lot to cover today, including talking about my new Favorite Morning Radio Show of ALL time. That's coming up as the day unfolds. So let's get going. Coming right up?

DLA For Sunday 102311
IWA for Sunday 102311


All that in a second. Now I have said it before, and I mean it. I know some of my more Right leaning Friends think I'm ignorant. Some of my more Liberal Friends do not believe I'm serious. But I am. We got Hussein. We got bin Laden. Why are we still in Iraq and Afghanistan? Time to come home.

This past Week, Obama announced that we WILL be coming home from Iraq. GREAT! I applaud him for that. After reading what I just read, I'm now calling for Obama to pull our Troops out of Afghanistan. TODAY!

According to Yahoo News / Reuters - Afghanistan to back Pakistan if wars with U.S.: Karzai

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Afghanistan would support Pakistan in case of military conflict between Pakistan and the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said in an interview to a private Pakistani TV channel broadcast on Saturday.

The remarks were in sharp contrast to recent tension between the two neighbors over cross-border raids, and Afghan accusations that Pakistan was involved in killing the chief Afghan peace envoy, former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, by a suicide bomber on September 20.

"God forbid, If ever there is a war between Pakistan and America, Afghanistan will side with Pakistan," he said in the interview to Geo television.

"If Pakistan is attacked and if the people of Pakistan needs Afghanistan's help, Afghanistan will be there with you."
OK. Time to go. See ya. Hope Iran doesn't invade ya. If we are not appreciated, they we should go. It really is not hard to understand.

I ask again. We GOT bin Laden. Why are we still there to begin with. After WE helped this Idiot get into power, he is now going to say that he would go to War with us? Get our Troops out of there. NOW. Please. It's time we started to seriously concentrate on our own Problems. But make no mistake about it, EVERYONE in the Middle East needs to understand one thing. If they DO attack us? We WILL retaliate. No more Mr. Nice USA. Lets just get out of the Region. Let them kill each other if they want. We gave them a chance. Now it's on them.

Going to fill my cup. Be right back.

Twins, Birth, Same Day, Same Hospital

This is truly amazing.

Hey folks,

Let's start things off on a lighter note today. This is one of those feel good stories that just make you think that life can indeed be stranger than fiction. Having Twins is rare in this Country. Well, it's rare anywhere. There are all kinds of studies out there about Twins. Movies are made about Twins. It is an interest that many find fascinating.

But then you have those rare stories of both Twins doing the same thing at the same time. Even if they are hundreds of miles apart. Getting Married. A Job. Winning some kind of Lottery. That sort of thing.

But then you have something like this. Twins, Birth, Same Day, Same Hospital. Seriously? This means that they would have both had to have become Pregnant on the same day. Around about. Then go through the whole Pregnancy together. At the same time. Then to give BIRTH? At the same time? This is truly amazing. According to Yahoo News AP - Indiana identical twins give birth on same day

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Two identical twins in Indiana now have another birthday in common: They delivered babies on the same day at the same hospital.

The Herald-Times reports (http://bit.ly/nuLCch) 21-year-old Jessica and Jennifer Patterson gave birth Wednesday at Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital.

Jennifer Patterson gave birth first to a girl, Adalynn Rose Patterson, who was born with a collapsed lung but is now doing fine.

Eight and half hours later, Jessica Patterson gave birth to a boy, Mason Douglas Patterson, by cesarean section.

Jennifer Patterson calls the same-day births "kind of cool." Both women live in the tiny Lawrence County town of Judah.

Hospital spokeswoman Amanda Roach says no one can recall the last time identical twins delivered babies at the hospital on the same day.
Well good for them. God bless them and little Adalynn Rose Patterson, Mason Douglas Patterson, welcome to the World. Something tells me you two will be extremely close Cousins.

Be right back.

Anti-Illegal Alien Bill Equals Bullying?

In a special YCMTSU Category, can you say REACHING?

Hey folks,

I know, I know, I get it. I'm a Racist. Because I care about this Country, and the Rule of Law, I must not like others that don't look like me. No. Wait. Oh yeah, I disagree with Obama's Policies so I'm already a Racist. I almost forgot. I was worried there for a second. But all is cool.

However, if YOU like those that are attempting to get a handle on Immigration, and reward those that come here LEGALLY, you RACIST you, you are also guilty of something else. Bullying. Yup. Bullying. According to Fox News - Immigration Law Blamed for Reported Bullying of Hispanic Students in Alabama Published October 22, 2011 Associated Press

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – It was just another schoolyard basketball game until a group of Hispanic seventh-graders defeated a group of boys from Alabama.

The reaction was immediate, according to the Mexican mother of one of the winners, and rooted in the state's new law on illegal immigration.

"They told them, `You shouldn't be winning. You should go back to Mexico,"' said the woman, who spoke through a translator last week and didn't want her name used. She and her son are in the country illegally.
OK STOP! Hang on a second. Read that AGAIN! "She and her son are in the Country Illegally." SO? A statement like this; "You shouldn't be winning. You should go back to Mexico." is NOT Bullying. It is a STATEMENT OF FACT! Regardless of your opinion on Immigration Laws, the FACTS are the FACTS. The TRUTH is the TRUTH! If you go into a Museum after it Closes, you do not belong there. You are TRESPASSING and whatever you do, even if it's dusting, vacuuming the Carpets, whatever, IS ILLEGAL. You have no RIGHT to be there. Go there the RIGHT way, when it's open, and you are allowed in, you know, follow the rules, you are more than Welcome. Why is this so hard for some people to grasp?

Spanish-speaking parents say their children are facing more bullying and taunts at school since Alabama's tough crackdown on illegal immigration took effect last month. Many blame the name-calling on fallout from the law, which has been widely covered in the news, discussed in some classrooms and debated around dinner tables.

Justice Department officials are monitoring for bullying incidents linked to the law.

"We're hearing a number of reports about increases in bullying that we're studying," the head of the agency's civil rights division, Thomas Perez, said during a stop in Birmingham.

The Justice Department has established a bilingual telephone hotline and special email account for residents to report any violence or threats based on racial or ethnic background that could be linked to the law. Officials would not provide a breakdown on the types of complaints being received.

Yet the Alabama Department of Education hasn't received any reports of bullying linked to the law, said spokeswoman Malissa Valdes, and it isn't tracking the issue to determine whether there could be a problem. Any parents who call the state with complaints would be referred to their child's principal, she said.
So WAIT a second. There are NO complaints? I bet there will be now. Since the idea is now out there. Have Illegals BLAME the Law, that makes them Illegal, for someone saying that they ARE Illegal. Am I following this correctly? Now it goes on to say those that object to it, like Obama hunting for the Hispanic Votes, say that the LAW, is creating, ready, I love this,"a climate of fear and mistrust." I have a solution. COME HERE LEGALLY! If you do not belong somewhere, ANYWHERE, you can not be upset with ANYTHING that happens to you. You should not be there. It's all a matter of CHOICE. You CHOSE to go somewhere you do not belong. Whatever happens to you, would NOT have happened, had you not been there.

Now I do truly believe that the Laws against Robbing Banks, the Drug Laws, and the Law in general, create "a climate of fear and mistrust." How is the Pimp supposed to enjoy the same opportunities as other Americans if he is worried about someone calling him a Drug Dealer. Or how is the Bank Robber supposed to live a peaceful life, seeking the American Dream, if he is worried about the Popo coming and knocking on his door. They are fearful that the Police will come and rip them away from their Families and throw them in Jail. So let's just do away with the Laws. They are real people with real feelings, just like you. It's not fair.

The Supporters, you know, the RACISTS, state what is FACT. Remember when we talked about all the States that were upside down? The Budget gap was in the Billions. Take away the cost of Illegal Immigration, those States would not only have Balanced Budgets, they would have SURPLUSES! SAVE all that money it cost to House, Care for {Medically} Feed, Educate, Cloth, Jail, ETC, those that should not even BE HERE, would bring things into balance. In some cases, tip the scale by BILLIONS, in the other direction.

The Liberal Dems want the Laws ignored, because they want the VOTES. "But Pete, Illegals can't Vote."{Sigh} OK. Believe that if you want. But they feel those that are "eligible" will because their Illegal Family members are here. And not being Deported.

Those that are here Illegal, of course they do not want the Law enforced. Duh? Now with the Obama Administration's Anti-Bullying Campaign in full swing, now the Immigration Law, and those enforcing it, are causing Bullying. Keep in mind though, this is all the start of it. This whole Article is a catalyst of what is to come. As of right this second, there is not ONE single complaint. Bet that will change soon.

You REALLY Can't Make This Stuff Up!

The Conversation

A Morning Talk Show you really MUST check out.

Hey folks,

You all know that I am a HUGE Talk Radio Junkie. I just am. You know I talk about Tom Sullivan, Rush, and others all the time. I even Post from time to time on the Tom Sullivan Radio's Facebook Page. But there is a Morning Talk Show like no other. I've mentioned it here a couple of times. It's called The Conversation with Rich Stevens and News Dude Dave Mcbride. A Morning Talk Show you really MUST check out.

You know how most Talk Radio Shows work. You call in, if you are lucky enough to get through, you must then get past the Call Screener, and if you are REALLY Lucky, you get on the Air. The way most of these work, you either agree with the Host, or you just do not get on. If you are THAT lucky, and the Host realizes that you do not agree with them, you get cut off. Some Shows are better than others, but they all pretty much operate the same way. But hey, if you can not get through, just TEXT Rush on his new I Phone and maybe he will read your comment on the Air? I can hear ya laughing right now. Well? You CAN Text Rich Stevens on his Personal I Phone. Yup. I said YOU can Text Rich Stevens on HIS Personal I Phone during the Show.

The thing I like the most about The Conversation, is that you are TRULY part of the Conversation. Agree or disagree, you can become a part of the Show. All they ask of you, is that if you disagree with something, you stay on the Line so they can discuss it with you. But they do not insult you. They do not cut you off.

Another aspect of the Show I like is that it is NON Political. They are there to entertain and inform. Of course, with the News being what it is, there are Political stuff from time to time, but they are not there to profess what they believe is the Political Party of choice. It's a FUN Show.

Now I know most of you do not live here in sunny South Florida. I get that. But I HIGHLY Encourage you to check them out between 9am - 12pm Eastern Standard time ONLINE. Just go to 850 WFTL Radio, click The Conversation with Rich Stevens and News Dude Dave Mcbride. and click Listen Live. It really is just that simple.

Trust me folks, you give this show a chance, and like me, you will most likely find it to be the Best Morning Show out there. I know some of you live in NY. They just got a call from someone listening in North Carolina? I think. They said they want to be their Northern Out Post. Well, I know we can do better than that. If you do tune in ONLINE in NY, or ANY Northern States, Call in and let them know where you are. {Smile} Maybe YOU will be the most Northern Out Post.

A Show like no other folks, TRUST ME when I tell you this. Check them out. You will not be disappointed.

Acid Reflux Drugs for Babies

Did you know this was a growing Problem? I didn't.

Hey folks,

I'm being dead serious here. You know I follow all things Health. You know I bring to you this Segment EVERY Sunday. Most of the time I have some knowledge of the Conversation that we have. I have researched it in the Past. I have lived it. I know others that have. ETC. But THIS? Did you know this was a growing Problem? I didn't.

What I'm talking about is Acid Reflux Drugs for Babies. Yup. I said Acid Reflux Drugs for Babies. Apparently, not only is this occurring more and more, it is OVER occurring and most of the time, COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY.

Now many of you know that I have a Baby Eli. My friends Steven and Laura just had a Baby Boy, Riley. I am raising my oldest Son Joshua. I helped raise my Niece. I KNOW Babies. I really do. I have been through more than some {Joshua's Torticollis and Plagiocephaly}, not as much as others. But I never knew this was even possible, let alone becoming a Problem. Joshua spit up. We changed his Formula, he was fine. Eli spits up from time to time, but seems, other than needing constant attention, perfectly fine. However, if I brought any of them to the Wrong Doctor, they may have been diagnosed with GERD and given Acid Reflux Drugs. BABIES?!?!

Well? According to WebMD - Are Too Many Babies Getting Acid Reflux Drugs?

Pediatrician Suggests Many Healthy Infants Are Prescribed GERD Drugs Unnecessarily By Cari Nierenberg WebMD Health News Reviewed by Laura J. Martin, MD

Oct. 20, 2011 -- Babies may spit up and cry and fuss for seemingly no reason. But one children's health expert has noticed an alarming increase in the number of infants being prescribed acid-suppressing drugs to reduce unexplained crying and spitting up.

In a commentary published in The Journal of Pediatrics, Eric Hassell, MD, a pediatric gastroenterologist at Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation in San Francisco, warns that the use of acid-suppressing medications to babies under 1 year old has skyrocketed. One large study in the U.S. found a 16-fold increase in the number of prescriptions for a kid-friendly liquid form of acid-suppressing drugs between 1999 and 2004.

Despite this recent spike in prescriptions, Hassell argues that the vast majority of infants don't have gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which is what these drugs are meant to treat.

"There was no good medical reason" for this huge jump in acid-reflux drug use in infants, he says. "There was no sudden epidemic of reflux disease."
So of course, why is it happening would be the question. Could Big Drug be making out pretty good here? Or is it REALLY the Parents Fault? This Doctor seems to think so.

Pressure to Prescribe

Hassell suggests that a baby's inconsolable crying and spitting up, which are separate symptoms, have become combined into a diagnosis of acid-reflux disease by some pediatricians. But this spitting up likely isn't "acid reflux" because infants have frequent feedings that tend to buffer stomach acid.

Most reflux is physiological, Hassell tells WebMD. In most cases, it's not the spitting up that should be treated, he says. The real issue is the unexplained crying.

To be sure, having your little bundle of joy morph into a little one who is wailing, bawling, and red-faced is nerve-wracking for frazzled parents. And some moms and dads put a lot of pressure on pediatricians to "do something" to help their hard-to-soothe infants.

"Parents are demanding treatment and demanding higher doses of drugs," suggests Hassell.

It's sometimes easier and quicker for a doctor to write a prescription instead of taking the time to explain what parents can try in place of drugs. He suspects that both parents and pediatricians are unaware of the extent to which acid-reducing drugs are being overprescribed or of their potential side effects if used long-term.
So Parents Dick and Jane hear from there friends Lucy and Bob, "Hey, our Baby Lob was crying all the time and having the same Spit Up as yours. Our Doctor said it was GERD, and Prescribed Drug XYZ for Acid Reflux, he is GREAT now." So Dick and Jane go to their Doctor and tells their Doctor what their friends said, and DEMAND that they get the same treatment. But Baby Spit up is NORMAL.

Spitting Up in Babies

We like to say that "spit happens" in babies, says Esther Israel, MD, a pediatric gastroenterologist at MassGeneral Hospital for Children in Boston. "Gastroesophageal reflux is not a disease in infants. It's a normal physiological response that babies often outgrow."

Israel admits there is a lot we don't know about why babies are irritable. Still, she notices that more and more kids are coming in to see her who are already on acid-suppressing drugs. And there is a concern that we are overmedicating these infants.

She says that before turning to medications, there are a lot of things that can be done from a behavioral perspective. These include soothing-type activities, such as rocking or patting the newborn in a quiet place. Dietary approaches such as switching from a milk protein-containing formula to a soy-based or hydrolyzed one may also make a difference. If a mother is breastfeeding, she can try eliminating milk products from her diet to see how her baby responds.

If colic is a concern, infants usually outgrow it in their first three to four months of life. And "there is no proof that unexplained crying in otherwise healthy infants is caused by pain in the abdomen or any other body part," writes Hassell in his commentary.

"The use of acid-suppressing medications in infants should be reserved for those children for whom behavioral methods and changes in formula don't work," Israel tells WebMD. And when those drugs are tried, she'll begin with a two-week trial to see if it calms a baby down.
Here are some more tips to sooth a Crying Baby. I didn't like this part of this Piece: "both Parents and Pediatricians are unaware of the extent to which acid-reducing drugs are being overprescribed or of their potential side effects if used long-term." So why would you WANT to put this into your Child's Body? Take the time to check out the tips for Crying Babies. I hope it helps you. You know what I always say when discussing anything Medical. When in doubt, go see your Doctor. If you do not like what your Doctor tells you, get a second opinion. How much more cautious should you be when dealing with your Child? Much more. Their Bodies are still growing and developing. You do not what ANYTHING to alter or hinder that in any way.

DLA For Sunday 102311

This is a GREAT Peace in the American Spectator

Hey folks,

Here is something that is all but hidden in the Mainstream Media. You do not get Stories like this one. You just don't. That's because it goes against the Liberal Agenda. All we ever hear is that the Tea Party, Republicans, Conservatives, anything NOT Liberal in general, are nothing more than Racist Hicks. So TRUE history and the TRUTH about Conservatism is always ignored. This is a GREAT Peace in the American Spectator. I guess they can SHARE this Award. I do not want to add anything to this. It was well written and our Winner this Week is someone that not only KNOWS the Truth, but has the courage to stand and speak it. Here it is.

The American Spectator - Don't Know Much About History By Larry Thornberry on 10.20.11 @ 6:08AM

Republicans and Black Americans -- a better story than you've heard.

Poet W. H. Auden said professors are folks who talk in other people's sleep. True enough. I recall some nodding off in my college history classes (not by me, of course).

No one, however, slept through the history lesson Tuesday night at the monthly meeting of the Hillsborough County (Tampa) Republican Executive Committee. But then Frantz Kebreau is not your ordinary professor. If fact, he's not a professor at all but an airline pilot and former Navy pilot with more than 300 carrier landings, taking some time away from the clouds to promote a more earthly understanding of the blessings of American freedom that people of all races can enjoy (at least and until politicians zero those freedoms out).

One of the favorite indoor sports of liberals is to call conservatives, particularly those with the temerity to embrace the tea-party, racist. To hear media-appointed black "leaders" like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpie, not to mention some of the more demagogic members of the Congressional Black Caucus, you'd think all white American conservatives, regardless of protestations to the contrary and spotless lives, are closet Ku-Kluxers who can barely contain their inner Bull Connor. These bigots we're told, given half a chance, would have our black brothers and sisters on the back of the bus again in a heartbeat.

When there's dumbness and demagogy in the air, Hollywood will be heard from. Morgan Freeman, a fine actor who can project intelligence and maturity on the screen, got in on the fun saying Republican efforts to retire Barack O'Barnum next year are "a racist thing," and show "the weak, dark side of America." Samuel L. Jackson, another black actor, echoed Freeman with this analysis of the campaign to replace our socialist president with a conservative: "It all boils down pretty much to race. It's not politics. It's not the economy."

OK, I get it. White conservatives and Republicans (not entirely coterminous categories) aren't really sore with O'Barnum for ballooning the national debt by $4 trillion and making national bankruptcy a real possibility, or for nationalizing one-sixth of the economy through Obamacare and generally trying to push as much as possible from the private to the public sector. It's not about setting federal agencies on a jobs-killing regulation binge, or for traveling the world apologizing for America's alleged sins and bowing before tyrants. It's not his rejection of American exceptionalism and total ignorance of the importance to world stability of a militarily strong America either.

No, no. These items are just trifles. What conservatives are really sore with our community-organizer-in-chief about is that he's not Caucasian. And isn't that just like those racist Republicans?

Kebreau, whose parents immigrated to America from Haiti, is having none of this. Since 2009 he's been on the news, talk shows, and speaking circuit making the point that, though few Americans know it, the record of the Republican Party for a century and a half has not only been more supportive of Black Americans than that of the Democratic Party has, but much more so.

In his Tuesday lecture before a couple hundred GOP activists in Tampa, Kebreau pointed out that the more than a dozen civil rights acts introduced into Congress over the past century and a half were all introduced by Republicans and opposed by Democrats, often vociferously. In each case a higher percentage of Republicans supported real civil rights than Democrats, including the all-important Civil Right Act of 1964. A full 80 percent of Republicans voted in Congress for this game-changing legislation that was the beginning of the end for Jim Crow. Only 63 percent of Democrats supported it, not including Democratic icon and former Ku Klux Klan member Robert C. Byrd, who filibustered it.

One hundred percent of Republicans supported the 13th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which ended slavery, while only 23 percent of Democrats did. The 15th amendment, giving all Americans the right to vote, was a 100 percent to zero percent Republican shutout.

Democrat Woodrow Wilson, our first true progressive president and touted by John Kerry as one of his favorites, segregated the federal civil service and the U.S. military and bears large responsibility for the decades of segregation that followed and the heartache, violence, and death required to put an end to it.

These historical facts are hiding in plain sight. But we live in an age of historical illiteracy. And these are not things members of the main(left)-stream media would like to talk about even if they knew them, which they don't.

Nowadays black voters, usually in percentages north of 90 percent, are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Democratic Party. Things have been trending in this direction since the New Deal, which provided jobs for many unemployed blacks. The last Republican presidential candidate to receive more than 20 percent of the black vote was Tricky Dick in 1960.

Since then black voter devotion to the Democratic Party has been, excuse the expression, slavish. It's a real head-scratcher to me on the academic and personal level why this endures now that so many blacks have entered the great American middle class and higher. I've known, worked with, played ball with, and buried my nose in the happy-hour froth with so many blacks who are personally conservative, but who almost invariably cast their votes for candidates who do not share their values.

In contrast to the gift of freedom and earned dignity, Democrats and liberals have bequeathed black Americans a stifling welfare system that's gone more than a fair long way toward dismantling the black family, as the melancholy statistics on out of wedlock births and one-parent families testify to. The Democrats also invented and cling to the policy of affirmative action, which is not a cure for discrimination but a socially corrosive form of it. There's hardly a more effective way of keeping Americans at war with each other than the racial spoils system of affirmative action, wherein the good things are divided up along racial lines.

Countless groups, like Tampa's Republicans, as well as news junkies, have heard Kebreau make these and other points in pursuit of his stated goal of a truly color-blind society. The only kind of society, in Kebreau's view, which has any chance of enduring peacefully and prosperously.

Kebreau told me he probably won't stay on the road pitching his ideas for the duration, even if he continues to get the standing-O's he received Tuesday night. But he'll stay at it until after the 2012 election, because he's concerned about the socialist direction the country is taking. He sees the freedoms he cherishes being threatened and eroded, and he doesn't like it.

Kebreau will eventually make it back to the cockpit. When his flying days are over he could do worse than consider the classroom. He's an acute thinker, a tireless researcher, and a talented speaker who will not have to pass out NoDoz tablets to his students to keep their attention.
So congratulations to both, Frantz Kebreau, for sharing the TRUTH, and the Writer of this piece, Larry Thornberry, for sharing it. Hey if we can have two Winners of the IWA this week, and we do, then we can have two Winners of the Display of Logic Award.

IWA for Sunday 102311

This one was too difficult to chose from. So we have TWO!

Hey folks,

Time to wrap things up with the Idiot of the Week. The only problem is, from the time I picked our Idiot, Idiots EVERYWHERE came out of the Wood Work. Some Right Wingnuts, some LWL. A couple of News Anchors, to a couple of Criminals. Seriously. Some weeks I actually have to look pretty hard to find one worthy of getting the Award. But it seems as if it keeps getting easier and easier.

This is actually a great way for me to answer a GREAT Friday "From the Emails" question.

"Pete, I am seriously getting concerned. Do you think that the majority of Americans realize that the day of idiocies is upon us? If so, do you think they will come out for the vote?"

{Laughing} The Days of Idiocies? I like that. Truth is, I have no idea CL. I would like to think so. As a matter of fact, that leads me into another Question that my Conservative Neighbor asked me.

"Hey Pete. I am really getting sick of the Republicans not calling these Idiots out for all this stupid stuff. When will they not grow a set and tell the people what the difference is between them and Reality?"

Basically they are both asking the same thing. My answer to my Conservative Neighbor, is my HOPE that, I'm, and they, are RIGHT about this. I told my Neighbor that I really think that they are not countering the Insanity, because they KNOW that the Majority of the American People are not stupid enough to believe ANY of it. NONE. So why bother wasting time countering it. It's like this. I say, there is a big Jelly Monster from the Planet Peanut Butter, coming here to eat everyone up. This is payback for all the PBJ Sandwiches that have been eating here over the years.

Now I say this in a room of like Fifty People. You are in the room also. Are you really going to waste your time standing up to counter me? Are you REALLY going to stand up and say There is NOT big Jelly Monster from the Planet Peanut Butter, coming here to eat everyone up. There is no Planet Peanut Butter. Nothing is coming here to eat us. No you wouldn't. Why would ANYONE believe this complete nonsense? So perhaps the Republican do not respond all that much when VP Biden says if we do not pass the "jobs Bill" there will be an Increase in Rapes and Murder. Why should they? Even 10 Democrats couldn't swallow that one. They KILLED it.

This is why the Republicans say nothing when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says THIS...

"It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine; it's the public-sector jobs where we've lost huge numbers, and that's what this legislation is all about," Reid said on the Senate floor.
Yes my friends, there is no problem out there. Why are you not working? What's wrong with you? "It's very clear that private-sector jobs have been doing just fine." Nobody believes this. NOBODY! It is not even CLOSE to being even somewhat accurate. The facts are the facts. They are there for everyone to see.

So our Idiot of the Week? This one was too difficult to chose from. So we have TWO! VP Biden, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. So do people know that the Days of Idiocies are upon us? I sure as Hell HOPE so. But hey, Moammar Gadhafi is dead, the Troops are coming home from Iraq, so all is well. Right?

Congratulations to our Winners. Keep up the good work. The people need to know just who the Kooks who are running this Country right now really are.

Is It Time For Special Prosecution Laws For Parents?

We have Hate Crimes, Religious Crimes, and special Laws against attacking a Peace Officer. What about Parents who kill their own kids?

Hey folks,

Now you already know how a feel about Hate Crime Legislation. I've spoken out about this numerous times. If I kill you because I didn't like you, does it matter why? Are you any more Dead? If I kill two people, one Black, and one White, or one Straight and one Gay, is there a Difference in how dead they are? Then you get into the whole "Thought Legislation" thing that you all know I'm against.

However, I will admit, when it comes to a Parent killing their own kid? This I'm starting to think is the WORSE Crime that anyone can commit. There is just something wrong with the psyche of someone who can look at their own Innocent little Child and decide, I'm going to Kill it. If they are capable of this, what else are they capable of doing?

We have it in the news all the time. Mother kills her 5 kids. Mother accuse of drowning her three kids. Dead Child found to have been abused. In recent News, we have a Mother who admits she was Drunk the Night her Child disappeared. Of course, lets not forget about Casey Anthony, who many feel got away with Murdering her Daughter and is now becoming a Star. As sick as that may sound.

Here is a Story that caught my attention this morning. It by the AP - Woman who killed baby accused of stabbing mom

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A woman who killed her baby 25 years ago by throwing her into San Diego Bay was due to appear in court on new allegations that she repeatedly stabbed her 86-year-old mother in the face, a newspaper reported.

Lorenza Delgadillo Penguelly, 51, was booked Monday on suspicion of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune (http://bit.ly/rjUp7X ).

Penguelly was being held without bail and was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday. It wasn't immediately clear whether she had an attorney.

Authorities alleged Penguelly stabbed her mother in the face eight times Monday and also cut her arms and hands. The mother was taken to a hospital and was expected to recover.
Now here is a women who ADMITS to killing her kid. She even said this at the time.

"She didn't make any cry when I threw her in the water. She floated and moved her little arms," Penguelly said according to court records cited by the newspaper.

The day before the crime, Penguelly had been seen at the Grape Street Pier trying to give away the infant.

The baby's body was found by a 14-year-old who thought it was a doll, according to news reports at the time. The baby's identity wasn't then known.
So what was she doing out? Seriously. She threw her Baby in the Bay, claims the Baby didn't cry, which means she WATCHED it try to swim, and she is out, free to do whatever? According to this, she only got SIX YEARS!!!! After attacking her Uncle who was looking for the "Missing Child."

Penguelly was arrested a month later in Santa Monica after she attacked her uncle, who kept asking her where her daughter was, police said.

She then admitted that she threw the baby in the bay was returned to San Diego to face a possible life sentence on a murder charge.

Her attorneys argued that she was suffering from postpartum psychosis, a rare maternal psychiatric disorder that can prompt mothers to kill. She pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, was sentenced to six years in prison and sent to Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino County for psychiatric treatment.
So because of Psychobabble and a Liberal Judge who said "Society had failed Penguelly and her baby by not making adequate Mental Health Resources available," she in essence, WALKED. Yet there is no evidence that she was seeking Mental Help. The "Diagnoses" was made after the arrest. So throw you baby in the Bay, watch it drown, and get SIX Years? Kill your kid and try to cover it up and WALK? I don't get it. I really don't

Does it make the Child anymore dead, if the Mother or Father kill it, or a stranger? No. Of course not. But there is something seriously WRONG with the Mother or Father that CAN kill their Baby. They should NEVER walk amongst free Society again. Minimum. They should get Life. Again I ask you. If they can do this? What else do you think them capable of?

11 Democrats Want Women To Die On Floor

Preview for Sunday 101611

Yes I heard the start of Rush's Show on on Friday. {Laughing} All I have to say is what I ALWAYS say in situations like this. Great Minds think alike. {Laughing} Thanks BTN.

Hey folks,

HAPPY SUNDAY to ya. Welcome to the Our oPion Network. This IS your Provocateur of thought, Peter Carlock. This IS the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk Blog. Glad to meet ya. How are you? Me? I'm fine. Thanks for asking. {Smile}

You TOO can be part of the OPNTalk Blog. Yes you can. Just like Fridays, and occasionally anytime, I do post some of your comments, like this morning, and YOU can go down in history as part of this Blog. {Smile} SO, if YOU want to be a part of the OPNTalk Blog, or just say Hi, the Email is opntalk@gmail.com. Can you tell I'm working on very little sleep here?

So it is official. With a Vote of 251 to 172, which included 11 Democrats, no Tax Dollars can be used to purchase Health Insurance Plans that cover Abortion. That's right, not even ObamaCare. So I guess these 11 Democrats WANT Women to die on the floor then. Right?

More on this in just a second. Coming right up?

Obama the Warlord?

To Take Or Not To Take? That Is The Question
DLA for Sunday 101611
IWA For Sunday 101611


OK so the 11 Democrats are:

Jason Altmire (D-PA), Dan Boren (D-OK), Jerry Costello (D-IL), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Lipinski Junior (D-IL), Jim Matheson (D-UT), Mike McIntyre (D-NC), Collin Peterson (D-MN), Nick Rahall (D-WV), Mike Ross (D-AR), Heath Shuler (D-NC). All eleven Voted with the Republicans. Now WHY do I keep saying that they want Women to die on the floor? That's what Pelosi said. Yes she did.

Nancy Pelosi said that Republicans were about to Vote for Women to die on the floor. SO? If these 11 Democrats Voted WITH the Republicans, then I guess in her point of view, THEY want Women to die on the floor? Right? I haven't taken the time out to check, but I would be willing to bet ALL 11 of these Dems are up for Reelection next year. They know what they are facing.

So it was a completely Bipartisan Vote. The Republicans and Democrats, coming together, working together toward a common good. Is that not what Obama keeps calling for? He should be happy over this.

Going to fill my cup. Be right back!
Peter

Obama the Warlord?

Where are all the Anti-War Liberals? Where is Code Pink?

Hey folks,

OK. Obama runs for Office. He says, "I will end the War in Iraq. I will bring the Troops Home. I will Close Gitmo. I will bring about an end of the War in Afghanistan." He wins. What does he do? Doubles down. He DOESN'T close Gitmo. He GETS bin Laden. So an obvious and HONEST question I have is this. We Got Saddam. We got bin Laden. WHY ARE WE STILL THERE!?!?

Thanks to Obama, we are in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen. Seriously? Now we are in Africa? AFRICA?? According to the UK Daily Mail - Now U.S. sends troops to Africa to take down brutal rebel leader

President Barack Obama said Friday he's dispatching roughly 100 U.S. troops to central Africa to help battle the Lord's Resistance Army, which the administration accuses of a campaign of murder, rape and kidnapping children that spans two decades.

In a letter to Congress, Obama said the troops will act as advisers in efforts to hunt down rebel leader Joseph Kony but will not engage in combat except in self-defence.

Pentagon officials said the bulk of the U.S. contingent will be special operations troops, who will provide security and combat training to African units.

The White House said the first troops arrived in Uganda on Wednesday.

Ultimately, they'll also deploy in South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
So now we are in "Five Wars?" Thank you Obama? What happened to War is not the Answer? What happened to negotiations? What happened to cutting the Military? I do not think he is going to cut Military spending if he is using them for "Justice" around the World. Now is he? "But Peter. This is only a Hundred Troops. No big deal. The are merely Advisers. They will only enter into combat in self defense." Yeah, and Libya was suppose to be a matter of days. We are still there. We are still fighting. What ever happened to seeking approval from Congress? Oh, he send a letter. According to CBS News - LRA: Rebels worth sending U.S. troops to Africa? October 15, 2011 8:34 AM

(AP) NAIROBI, Kenya - Why is the U.S. sending its troops to finish off a fractured band of bush fighters in the middle of Africa? Political payback for the quiet sacrifices of Uganda's troops in Somalia could be one reason.

President Barack Obama announced Friday he is dispatching about 100 U.S. troops — mostly special operations forces — to central Africa to advise in the fight against the Lord's Resistance Army — a guerrilla group accused of widespread atrocities across several countries. The first U.S. troops arrived Wednesday.

Obama sends troops to Africa to counter rebels

Long considered one of Africa's most brutal rebel groups, the Lord's Resistance Army began its attacks in Uganda more than 20 years ago. But the rebels are at their weakest point in 15 years. Their forces are fractured and scattered, and the Ugandan military estimated earlier this year that only 200 to 400 fighters remain. In 2003 the LRA had 3,000 armed troops and 2,000 people in support roles.

But capturing LRA leader Joseph Kony — a ruthless and brutal thug — remains the highest priority for Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, a 25-year-leader who has committed thousands of troops to the African Union force in Somalia to fight militants from al-Shabab, a group with ties from al Qaeda.

The U.S. has not had forces in Somalia since pulling out shortly after the 1993 Black Hawk Down battle in Mogadishu in which 18 American troops died.

Some experts believe that the U.S. military advisers sent to Uganda could be a reward for the U.S.-funded Ugandan troops service in Somalia.

"I've been hearing that. I don't know if our group necessarily agrees with that, but it definitely would make sense," said Matt Brown, a spokesman for the Enough Project, a U.S. group working to end genocide and crimes against humanity, especially in central Africa.
Now again, this is a very bad guy. Bad stuff is happening. Obama is taking it upon himself to deploy US Men and Women to go off to War in a foreign Country, to fight a War that is not ours to fight. 5. 5 Wars? Where is Code Pink? I know some of the Anti-War crowd is busy being paid to Protest Wall Street, and in other Cities around the Country. But FIVE Wars?

I know it's only a hundred Troops. Yet? What happens if they are killed? What happens if they are captured? Do we just say to those Obama Promised to help. "Well, that's it. We tried. They kicked our butt. Your on your own? Of course we would NEVER do that. Like I said before, we are STILL in Libya. Where are the body counts? Why do we NOT still hear how Iraq is a travesty? WHERE ARE THE PROTESTERS? "Uh, we are protesting, uh, we are here for, uh, Weed and Chicks. Yeah. Peace out man."
