Sheesh, Guy Ritchie said she looks like an old hag without makeup - he was right! She babbled away at one of her recent concerts about how Sarah Palin was not invited to her party, and from the looks of it partying is the one thing Madonna has had too much of!

Madonna told the audience "you know who can get off of my street? Sarah Palin! I'm gonna kick her ass if she don't get off of my street!"

Madonna also heckled Palin at her show at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, she shouted: "Sarah Palin can't come to my party! Sarah Palin can't come to my show. It's nothing personal."

Madonna is not going to grow old gracefully.

An American Carol

We saw this movie last night and really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it, especially with the election right around the corner. I've heard some theaters are selling tickets to other movies when you ask for this one - so check your movie ticket to make sure credit is given where credit is due. Also, this would be a fun movie to own/give for Christmas. There was a great line by President Washington, where he said something along the lines of "When you die, and you face your maker, you will have to tell the truth."

Congratulations Canada!!

Yeah! Conservatives re-elected in Canada! Story here

Bright Bolide

Credit & Copyright: Howard Edin (Oklahoma City Astronomy Club)
Explanation: On September 30, a spectacular bolide or fireball meteor surprised a group of amateur astronomers enjoying dark night skies over the Oklahoma panhandle's Black Mesa State Park in the Midwestern US. Flashing past familiar constellations Taurus (top) and Orion, the extremely bright meteor was captured by a hillside camera overlooking the 2008 Okie-Tex Star Party. Astronomy enthusiast Howard Edin reports that he was looking in the opposite direction at the time, but saw the whole observing field light up and at first thought someone had turned on their car headlights.

Obama's terrorist ties...

Cartoon hat tip Debaterbrawl
Just got this in an email: "Now isn't this something to think about! If Barack Obama would apply for a job with the FBI or with the Secret Service, he would be disqualified because of his past association with William Ayers, a known terrorist. If he is elected President he would not qualify to be his own body guard!"

Obama's buddy William Ayres, then and now..

Then (1969, when Obama was 8):

"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at."

Now (September 11, 2001, when Obama was 41, and now his friend):

"I don't regret setting bombs, I feel we didn't do enough."

And then of course, there's the bombastic Reverand Wright.. We can't forget about him. Mr "God Damn America" and "US of KKK A". Obama is either a really bad judge of character (never a good quality for a President) or he's an outright liar and charlatan.

Obama's opposition to NAFTA "should be viewed as more about political positioning than a clear articulation of policy plans."

For the Canadians, a key point of concern was Obama's sharp criticism of the North American Free Trade Agreement. DeMora wrote Wilson that in the Chicago meeting, Goolsbee "candidly acknowledged the protectionist sentiment that has emerged, particularly in the Midwest, during the primary campaign" but reassured Rioux that Obama's NAFTA-bashing "should be viewed as more about political positioning than a clear articulation of policy plans."

Three weeks later, Canada's CTV News reported that a "senior member" of Obama's campaign had phoned Wilson personally to advise him to "not be worried about what Obama says about NAFTA." The Obama campaign denied that story, which (if you believe DeMora's account) was only slightly off the mark, and declined to elaborate. On March 3 the Associated Press released the DeMora memo, which by then had circulated widely within the Canadian government. Asked once again to comment, Obama said his campaign provided Canada no such reassurance while Goolsbee maintained that DeMora "misinterpreted" his comments. For its part, the Chicago consulate smoothed things over with a statement saying, "there was no intention to convey, in any way, that Senator Obama and his campaign team were taking a different position in public from views expressed in private." It looks like President Obama may owe one to our friendly neighbors to the north.

Hat tip where they have a photocopy of said document.

Of course the above mentioned occurred 7 months ago, however, it's a good reminder that what Obama says is not necessarily what he'll do. He will do and say anything to get elected. We Americans are supposed to be smart enough to look at previous actions to determine future behavior. A leopard can not change its spots.

Joe Biden says "No" to refugees..

Here's a little something from a Vietnamese friend:

"This is the LAND OF OPPORTUNITIES!!! My family and most of the Vietnamese people know that very well and we are a testimony of it. The Vietnamese people do not forget that Joe Biden was against a bill to help open the door of Immigration to accept us/refugees in 1975. He said that we are better off to stay in VN. Thank God, the bill did pass. And here I am!"

My friend and her husband both worked their way through college and are now engineers. I thank God she is here:>D

Obama's buddy who ruined Fannie Mae - Franklin Raines

Hat tip: email today from a friend
" Franklin Rains is the former chairman and chief executive officer of Fannie Mae, the government sponsored enterprise started in 1939 to offer mortgages to Americans wishing to become home owners. After serving as budget director under President Bill Clinton, Mr. Raines served as CEO at Fannie Mae from 2000 until 2004. While Mr. Raines was CEO, Fannie Mae went deep into the practice of buying mortgages based on almost no or no money down given to borrowers who could not afford them.

During this time he received bonuses and salary over 90 million dollars. In 2004 he was offered 'early retirement' after the accounting practices used at Fannie during his tenure to secure top executive bonuses were shown to be fraudulent. Civil charges were filed against Raines and two other former executives which sought $110 million in penalties and $115 million in returned bonuses from the three accused. On April 18, 2008, the government announced a settlement with Raines together with J. Timothy Howard, Fannie's former chief financial officer, and Leanne G. Spencer, Fannie's former controller.

The three executives agreed to pay fines totaling about $3 million, which will be paid by Fannie's insurance policies. When pressed by the Bush administration to tighten down regulations on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, members of congress - Republicans and Democrats alike - in positions to pass such regulations, did nothing.

Today, Fannie Mae owns or guarantees over half of America's 12 trillion dollar mortgage market, and we are in the middle of a credit crunch and housing slump brought on in large part by government backed Fannie Mae going down this dangerous credit slope under Mr. Raines.

And where is Franklin Raines today? He is a chief economic advisor to the presidential campaign of Senator Barack Obama."

Socialist Obama?

Hat tip JB Williams and YWL:

"In 1995 Obama signed a contract with the DSA "promising a more open relationship with the Marxist New Party".

About 50 activists attended the Chicago New Party membership meeting in July. The purpose of the meeting was to update members on local activities and to hear appeals for NP support from four potential political candidates...."

And their Mission Statement is:

"Our mission is to establish democratic socialism as a political force in the United States and around the world by training and mobilizing socialist activists to participate in a vibrant and diverse socialist organization at both the local and the national level. DSA both educates the public about democratic socialist values and policies and builds progressive coalitions to win victories that move the U.S. and the world toward social democracy... In the long term, democratic socialists fight for a world in which all people share equally in the governing of the economic, political and cultural institutions and relationships that shape their lives."

Smoking Obama

From one of today's emails:
"Much is made of McCain's age. Has anyone brought up the fact that Obama smokes and both of his parents died at an early age. Plus Biden has had two brain aneurysms which could have killed him. If they both died while in office that would leave Nancy Pelosi as president. I can't think of a better reason to vote for McCain & Palin."

Obama has NPD?

There's an excellent video examining the possibility that Obama has Narcissistic Personality Disorder, here. Hat tip The Merry Widow.

Republicans NOT Democrats were warning of Freddie and Fannie failure years ago...

Maxine Waters today, talking about how the people were too stupid to read their loan documents and were duped!

Now, to see what Waters was saying back when the Republicans were urging greater regulation of Freddie and Fannie, take a look at this:

So, there you have it. The Democrats will lie and cheat to get elected.

Banana Bread

3 very ripe bananas (I used 3 frozen previously - thawed)
1/2 cup honey
3 tbsp canola oil, plus a little more for oiling the loaf pan
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour (I used regular whole wheat flour)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (I used chopped raw almonds)

(I added about 1/4 cup of ground flax seeds)

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a loaf pan.
2. Mash the bananas and mix with the honey, canola oil and vanilla extract.
3. Stir together the whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda and salt. Add the nuts.
4. Blend the two mixtures and spoon into a lightly oiled loaf pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until center is set.

YUM YUM.. It turned out very good, especially buttered.
