All of the Hope and the Hype is Warm-Up For the Heist
The above sticker was seen last month in the trendy, liberal Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. I think that the poor guy thought that I was trying to attack his car when I took the photo, it was parked in a Walgreens lot and he wasn't happy with any attention (then don't put stickers it on your car!). In his defense the lower left corner appears that somebody has attempted to remove the sticker. He did tell me something along the lines of "all of the hope and the hype is warm-up for the heist." Amen.

HillBuzz on Race in Pennsylvania
"Tonight we spoke with a friend from Hillary Clinton’s campaign who is now working for McCain/Palin — and is specifically working with Democrats for McCain in Pennsylvania. We worked with her in Texas, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania for Hillary and have spent many LONG hours with her in the trenches in all of those states. She’s smart, doesn’t BS, and never lies."
She says the same thing we do: John McCain will win Pennsylvania.
I don't know what to think about this but as they say, read it all.

Got that Pennsylvania? To the liberal elite who look down their noses at you and spend their days pining for an Obama Presidency you are a bunch of ass-backward, rednecked, racist, bumpkins. Now put some shoes on and go vote Obama.

Democratic Lawyer Threatens College Media - Vee Vill Be Vatching You!
One Thomas Louis Rosenberg of Roetzel & Andress, LPA in Columbus, Ohio sent the following to Tiffany Wilson, a Palestra reporter and a recent graduate of Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism:
From: Rosenberg, Thomas
Date: Sun, Oct 26, 2008 at 2:32 PM
Subject: At least in today’s blog you spelled my last name right
In other words, I am going to read what you write and watch what you say. Hopefully you will be fair and impartial as you told me you would be.
Thomas L. Rosenberg
Roetzel & Andress, LPA
Columbus, OH 43215
The above is not a translation from the "original" German, "Vee Vill Be Vatching You!" And why do I picture this man wearing a monocle?
This type of intimidation tactic, as typical as it is for the Obama campaign, is appalling. It is also what we can expect from our government during an Obama administration, those who expose the Obama administration's potential fraudulent and illegal activities will be threatened by those who otherwise "See Nutting!"
What is one to think of an attorney who insinuates that there is a need for a member of the media to appear "fair and impartial" as defined by that lawyer? What is one to think of that attorney's understanding of the First Amendment as applied to journalists? Further what is one to think of the political campaign that such a lawyer supports through this not unwritten intimidation? It is also worth noting that Tiffany's and fellow Palestra journalist Shelby Holliday's work uncovered Democratic vote fraud in the state of Ohio and this member of the Ohio State Bar Association has taken it upon himself to threaten Ms. Wilson for what one would reasonably conclude was her journalistic threat to organized Democratic vote fraud in the state of Ohio.
Watch this video (also linked above) and listen (near the end) to the tactics of the Ohio lawyers who have been involved in Democratic get out the vote efforts and the office of the Ohio Secretary of State, a Democratic supporter of Senator Obama.
Greta Van Susteren has reported the following: "UPDATE: 1:10pm — I was told the lawyer apologized to the Palestra journalist..and said he did not mean it to be an intimidation." That is rich, "he did not mean it to be an intimidation." then what did he mean it as, an editorial review? Sheesh, some of these Obama supporters are unbelievable, do they think that everybody is as ignorant as some of Obama's supporters?
By no means should this post be taken as a reason to intimidate Mr. Rosenberg or his law firm, let's leave that type of nonsense to the thugs in the Obama campaign.
Hat Tip: Jamie Wearingfool and Greta Van Susteren. Many thanks to Greta, an attorney (and Wisconsin Badger fan) who was on top of the story this morning.

"If Barack Obama is Elected We Will Have a Crisis"
Friday, October 24, 2008
OBAMA, NO MERCI BEAUCOUP - Poor James and the Swamp Crows
Close the Markets! The Democrats Are Coming! The Democrats Are Coming!
Let's see, why were the Dow Jones Industrial Futures down 550 points (6.27%) overnight, just 2 1/2 hours before the market opens in New York? I started too early, the stock futures markets are not open and have been halted. Talking heads will point to the sell off in Asia, lead by Sony of Japan, however some of us understand that one of the major influences for the stock market is the future, and what a future the Democrats have planned for us.
Just yesterday Henry Waxman (D-Ca) chaired a hearing in which he and his fellow imbecilic Democratic knaves grilled numerous past and current federal money men. Let's face it, in January 2007 the Democrat Party installed as House leaders the same old people who do not understand the basics of capitalism. Henry Waxman, beyond being one of the creepiest looking men on the planet is a bully (see: mental problems) who uses his hearings to bludgeon his intellectual betters with his bullying propaganda. How do you think traders overseas saw the spectacle of a man who looks like he is dressed up as Porky Pig on Halloween verbally abusing the men whom this nation is relying on to guide us through this mess? As an aside, Allen Greenspan's appearance was a disgrace and reminds us why Greenspan Econometrics gave a thumbs-up, a-okay to Charles Keating's Lincoln Savings and Loan months before its catastrophic collapse. Mr. Greenspan lead a monetary expansion that is one of the root causes (along with the Democrats and their Fannie Mae scams) of the crisis that we are now experiencing.
Barack Obama has spent over twenty months on the campaign trail and years before that insisting that America is involved in too much trade and that tax rates are too low, today he is claiming that he will "lower your taxes" as long as you don't make too much. Barack Obama has said that he will further raise: capital gains taxes, dividend taxes (screwing Joe the Plumber if some future business of his is organized as an S-Corp.) and overall tax rates. And Obama is just starting, remember that he is not a wonk like Clinton. Add to that the fact that the Democrats are now talking about getting rid of your 401Ks and absorbing those funds into the Social Security system. Early in the first Clinton administration there was a suggestion (later shot down) to impose a "one-time" 20% tax on all IRAs and 401Ks. They want your wealth.
The markets are facing it you might as well do the same, the Democrats want to take your money. The Democrats will not even consider a trade pact with our allies in Columbia as they fight against narco-communists over control of that nation. Why are the Democrats allied with today's Colombian Drug Kings? Add to that the fact that Obama has been involved in ACORN which has recently been outed to the larger public as a vote fraud and mortgage fraud organization, further Obama is breaking all sorts of campaign finance laws, even stooping to credit card fraud, further Obama and his minions have been involved in voter intimidation using gangbangers and thugs, Obama has been involved in voter intimidation that uses silk-stockinged lawyers pleading to the Justice Department to end others political free speech, Obama has urged his followers to stifle the free speech of voters, Obama has voted to force certain bloggers to register with the federal government under threat of prison. The Democrat Party has become no friend of freedom and they are no friend of yours. Barack Obama has never been a friend of freedom.
As of 8:07 AM CDT the Dow Jones 30 futures are offered at their locked (temporary?) limit of 8224. Lord save us from the ideas of our Democrat neighbors. Let's just hope that our markets are sturdier than they were in 1914.
8:32 - The stock market is open and the Dow Jones futures are down 603 points. Good luck today.

The Stop Obama Tour Dares to Appear In Chicago Area
Obama to Charge Press for Political Rally in Grant Park
On the flip side, Obama has been treating the press as "his bitches" for over four years now, so why stop now? The press seems to like it. Besides there will be no charge for the "General Press Area" including the bike racks. Well it is good of them to not rent out the city bike racks that are all over the place. Considering that I can see Grant Park from our office and the view will likely be better than from the "General Press Area" maybe we should rent it out to one of the networks.

Iranian "Spy Pigeon" Nailed Over Chicago's Loop - Warning - Bloody Photo
Following on the heals of "spy pigeons" found flying over Iranian nuclear installations, downtown Chicago experienced it's own "spy pigeon" scare early this morning when overnight "Guard Falcon" Frankie brought down a suspected Iranian "spy pigeon" over the South Loop, the pigeon was found on a ledge outside of the 41st floor of the Chicago Board of Trade Building. Frankie, one of Chicago's Finest Peregrines was not available for comment however a spokeswoman for the Chicago Police Office of Internal Affairs said that initial reports are that the take down followed department regulations. The spokeswoman also said that the "spy pigeon" was equipped with a "teeny-tiny camera" that transmitted to a taxi following the pigeon through the streets below, the Spokeswoman helpfully explained that "a cab is the only vehicle that could drive like that without raising suspicions."
Warning: the above is satire directed at the Iranian regime, the Gateway Pundit has the story of the Iranian regime claiming to have captured "spy pigeons."

"I'm Sarah Palin and Have a Pleasant Tomorrow"
Obama's Spreading of the Wealth - A Real World Contagion
If Obama's plans are enacted he would not only pay higher Federal Income taxes but dramatically higher FICA taxes on each extra dollar he earns. He has done the math and as his business is going today he would lay off 25% of his workforce under Obama's more repressive tax program, that is ten people. Those ten people would not be paying taxes locally or federally, they would likely draw unemployment and possibly welfare, they would be spending less in our economy. Further this man's business would not be doing those small lot jobs at discounted prices for other small businesses, further spreading this high-tax-induced contagion to other small businesses and their employees. Barack Obama's plans would spread poverty rather than wealth.

Mission Impossible: Chicago Media To Report on Obama?
Sony CFM-33: Good evening Mr. Media, I hope that this message finds you both sober and well. You and your Media Cohorts in Chicago and elsewhere have dug into the life of an American Citizen from Toledo, Ohio known as Joe the Plumber for the simple reason that he asked a reasonable question of your fellow Chicagoan and hometown favorite Mr. Obama. Mr. Plumber was doing the job that you and your Media cohorts have avoided for at least 22 months. Your mission, should you decide to accept it is as follows:
Do your job. Yes Mr. Media I am not asking much of you and your fellow ink-stained wretches, I am simply asking you to do your job. Should you accept this mission you will travel all of 1 mile 4, 789 feet from the end bar stool at the Billy Goat to the Richard J Daley Memorial Library on the campus of the University of Illinois at Chicago. When you arrive you will investigate and honestly write about Mr. Obama's only executive experience at the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. In the mean time you can have that bubble-headed girl who is your "intern" pull up all of the Annenberg articles that your paper wrote during the Challenge's existence.
Because you have acted as if you have no idea where those records are located, here are your directions: take this street, Lower Michigan Avenue south over the bridge to Lower Wacker Drive and take a right, follow Lower Wacker in the right lane to the end at the I-290 West on-ramp, take that and stay on your right, when you get back over the river stay in the right lane and get off on the I-90/94 Exit and take the I-90/94 East Dan Ryan exit on your left, take the Dan Ryan about a half of a mile and get off at Taylor Street West, take Taylor Street to Morgan Street, take a right and find a place to park. The Richard J Daley Memorial Library will be on your right, you can't miss it.
At less than four miles round trip there will be no mileage allowance.
Good luck Mr. Media. This tape will self-destruct in 12 seconds, ten, nine, eight, seven...

Obama Senior Advisor Does Not Understand Income
There are some big problems with all this, for starters the only "capital gains" that Joe the Plumber would declare would be from the sale of all or part of his business. Furthermore, as I am sure Mr. Obama knows, most small businesses are set up as an "S-Corporation". The business files a return, form 1120S with the profit being declared on the owner's form 1040 (line 17). In addition to being dishonest on the subject it should be noted that during the past decade small businesses that file as S-Corporations have been very important job creators. Obama wants to pluck the geese that have been laying the golden eggs in our society.
Good Lord, Mort Kondracke just said the same thing concerning capital gains, business income is not a capital gain.

Gary, Indiana - One Vote Over the Line for Obama Campaign - UPDATE - Las Vegas!
Barack Obama's former employer, ACORN (where he was a "community organizer") has just turned in thousands of fraudulent voter registrations in Lake County, Indiana. This follows reports from the primary that Chicagoans were attempting to vote in Lake County and that people were bused in from elsewhere, that students were taken out of school and bused to polling places. A documentary concerning fraud in this year's Democratic Caucuses even examined polling in Lake County, among other things they found gang intimidation (starting at 4:00 minutes) in Lake County. The first linked article mentions that telephone lines at the ACORN offices in Gary, Milwaukee and Chicago were reported to be disconnected, here is what I found: the Gary office has an anonymous recorded message voice mail that appears to be from their telephone service company, the Milwaukee line has been disconnected and the Chicago line appears to be up but the nested menu often reconnects to itself. This is more of the hopeful Chicago politics that the Obama campaign is bringing to America, this is Democratic "reform."
Washington's Sun Times column covers a number of issues but here are the relevant paragraphs (emphasis mine):
On Nov. 4, Gary, Ind., could end up as ground zero of the political universe. Indiana was the firewall state in the 2008 Democratic primary season. Hillary Clinton won that battle, but lost the war.
Rudy Clay, the flamboyant and pertinacious Gary mayor, was the star of that drama. Although Clinton prevailed in the May 6 primary, the returns from Clay's stomping grounds came in so late that Clinton was denied a victory speech in prime time. Clinton supporters accused Clay of sabotaging the counting.
Clay claims the process was slowed by a deluge of early-voting ballots. "We were not doing that on purpose," he told me the other day. "It just looked that way." I could almost see his grin over the phone.
Once again Indiana is hotly contested territory, and Gary could be pivotal.
"No Democrat has ever won the state of Indiana without winning Gary. We are not going to break precedent now," Clay proclaimed.
His voters will bring it in for Obama because they know how to count, Clay added.
"We are spending $10 [billion] to $12 billion a month in Iraq, and in Gary we can't get $12 to fix a pothole."
State Sen. Earline Rogers, a lead coordinator of the get-out-the vote effort, is also counting -- and confident. The Gary native has served in the Indiana legislature for 26 years.
"We are trying to be extremely careful," she said, "because the rest of the state looks at us as sort of the 'Cook County of Indiana.' " (Senator, nice try, but don't even think about snatching that esteemed title away from us.)
Obama lost the Indiana primary by about 14,000 votes. Rogers calculates that 19,000 registered Gary voters did not show up at the polls in May. "We can make up that difference," she said.We should all be worried about vote fraud in Gary and elsewhere in Lake County, Indiana. This is the new kind of politics? This is the change we've been waiting for? These are the people we've been waiting for?
UPDATE: The ACORN office in Las Vegas has been raided by Nevada State officials today! The Gateway Pundit has the story!

Obama Gets Campaign Cash From Gaza - II
As far as we know Obama has not taken illegal campaign cash from monks like Al Gore did a dozen years ago but the Obama campaign is taking illegal campaign donations from non-citizens living in the Gaza Strip. Atlas Shrugged has had the story on last fall's donations by the Edwan brothers who listed their state as GA and their Zip Code as 972, GA is the Gaza Strip and 972 is in Israel. Federal campaign regulations require donors to be American citizens and those regulations limit donations to $2,300 per person.
The Gaza Strip address that the brothers used should have been the first tip for the Obama campaign but what the heck, they took $24,321.41 from one brother and $5,200.13 from the other. That number brings up something interesting, why are the totals not some simple large round numbers? In this World Net Daily interview Monir Edwan claimed that he and his brother bought tee-shirts from the Obama site but he claimed to have made a profit selling the shirts at less than half the price charged on the Obama site and claimed to have received the shirts during an Israeli crackdown on the Gaza Strip. It sounds as if the tee shirt story is a lie and the WND reporter pretty much shreds it. So it is likely that the brothers made their donations on a credit card of a round number in a foreign currency, it is unlikely that they randomly chose that donation level in American dollars. Did the Obama campaign offer donation levels in foreign currencies?
This clearly illegal fund raising is in addition to the illegal fund raising raffle that they reworked as a bait & switch to pass the test of legality.
Obama Campaign Still Illegally Using Boy Scout Name and Logo - II
Well, they just can't help themselves anymore. The official My Barack Obama web site, now featuring Joe Biden is hosting another problematic web page sponsored by Obama supporters. This one, "Boy Scouts for Barack Obama" is illegally using the Boy Scout logo and name and it is inappropriately using the Boy Scouts of America to promote a political candidate. The group also has some issues with the language, this is their Group Profile: "We are Boy scouts that want to use our rights to make this country a better place." On the other hand the Profile may just be living down to the pejorative "Obamabots."
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) web site is pretty clear on the use of the BSA logo and image:
Please note that in 1916, in order to protect the proprietary marks of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), the U.S. Congress granted the BSA a federal charter (36 USC § 21 et. seq.), which gives the BSA "the exclusive right to use emblems, badges, descriptive or designating marks, and words and phrases [the BSA] adopts."
In effect, almost any logo or symbol that reasonably relates to the Boy Scouts of America or its program is protected. Accordingly, anyone seeking to use any symbols, words, or phrases that might reasonably be related to the BSA and its programs should contact the Boy Scouts of America Legal Department...
Interestingly Troop 632 in Pensacola, Florida had to issue a reminder to their Scouts on the subject of "uniforming", particularly at political events. It seems that during the 2006 campaign President Bush spoke at a rally in Pensacola that was attended by some Boy Scouts in uniform and as Kim Sheldon, the District Executive wrote, "(u)nfortunately, some of the public observing the media coverage perceived this to be a partisan demonstration by the Boy Scouts for the Republican political candidates President Bush was there to promote." In a summary of BSA rules and practices Sheldon wrote, "Scout uniforms shall not be worn to political events or rallies, protests or demonstrations where its appearance could reasonably be used to imply BSA support for a particular political cause or candidate."
So just two short years ago members of the Democratic Party whined and complained about a few Boy Scouts who wore their uniforms to an event featuring the President of the United States, today the Democrats illegally use the Boy Scout logo and name in an attempt to elect Barack Obama President of the United States. According to the My Barack Obama web site this group of 240 "Boy Scouts" has made 3,721 phone calls, they have yet to knock on any doors and they have raised $9,642.40. This Ladies and Gentleman is not what Scouting is about, this is Chicago politics, plain and simple. Get used to it, the election is still 70 days away.
The folks at BoyandGirlScouts.com reported on this issue last month and My Barack Obama continues to host Boy Scouts for Barack Obama. The always prepared Boy Scouts do have this helpful line on the BSA web site: "If you are aware of the unauthorized use of these trademarks, please contact the BSA immediately by linking to bsalicensing.org--Unauthorized Use Form."
I should give thanks to commenter fgfm who got me on the trail of whether or not McCain was ever a Boy Scout, he apparently wasn't. However I did stumble across the previously linked post on Boy and Girl Scouts.com that discusses Obama and McCain on volunteering and it also discusses the Obama campaign's use of the Boy Scout name and insignia. Thanks fgfm.

Barney Frank's Ex-Boyfriend Was Fannie Mae Bigshot
That's great, the guy who still helps oversee the programs of Fannie Mae was sleeping with the man who helped design the programs that are now costing America billions of dollars, and when the designer of those programs left his job he and the overseer broke up. Let me be clear, I do not care who Rep. Frank is sleeping with, however I do think that Barnie Frank should keep his bedroom out of the national treasury and our wallets. Before Rep. Frank met Mr. Moses he infamously dated Stephen Gobie, Mr. Gobie ran a prostitution service out of Rep. Frank's Georgetown condo. In more rational times Rep. Frank would be kept far, far away from any serious decision making.
