Kay Hagan and her Godless American pals

Republicans haven't had  a ton of success in North Carolina because with a few exceptions the Democrat party there is still controlled by old style Democrats who, while rather free with the taxpayer's money, are still recognizable as Americans.  They often get NRA endorsements which may seem surprising to Northerners.

That's changing though as a Howard Dean supporter got elected Democrat State Chairman and the wingnuts are beginning to run for higher office while necessarily trying to conceal their moonbattery from the North Carolina populace of all parties. A case in point is this year's Democrat US senatorial candidate, Krazy Kay Hagan (NRA grade F), who couldn't resist the temptation to sneak off to Boston to get some cash from the leaders of the Godless Americans PAC. You know - the freaks who want to take "In God We Trust" off the currency among other things. For the benighted citizens of the Old North State clinging to guns and religion it was quite an eyeopener and her opponent Elizabeth Dole is jamming it down Hagan's throat:

Kay Hagan should have run in Massachusetts where I am sure they would appreciate her act.

What really happened at the Rashid Khalidi goodbye party

Rand Simberg has the goods on Barack Obama's appearance at the goodbye party for Palestinian terrorist apologist Rashid Khalidi:

There are PLO and Hamas flags decorating the room, along with Che and Mao posters. Khalidi, Ayers and Obama are slapping each others' backs, raising their glasses and toasting the upcoming destruction of the racist Zionist entity, all the while laughing at the thought of the final Final Solution. Obama says, "You know, when I take over, the first thing I'll do is withdraw all aid from those fascist kikes, and I'll give the Palis a couple nukes." Then he turns to Ayers, and asks him if he's come up with any fresh schemes for mass murder of the millions of recalcitrant capitalists, so that they can be implemented in the first one hundred days. After dessert, they get out an American flag, crumple it up on the floor, and jump up and down on it, shouting "Death to Capitalism, Death to America."

Golly, I thought the problem was when Michelle got up on the table and did a strip tease while Barack and the other radicals and terrorists yelled "Burn, baby, burn." 

Meanwhile, Doug Ross has a tip:

Reason we can't release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying "Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine" plus there's been "genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.

All the LA Times has to do to prove us wrong is to release the tape. What have they got to hide?

Today's Hoot: Barack Obama's Foreign Policy

The only part that is missing is where Hussein kisses their butts. Given how many third world dictators there are, he's would also need to nationalize Chapstick.

I guess Obama wasn't hung over and asleep every Sunday he went to church

Oh ye of little faith! Barack Obama wasn't actually hung over and asleep all those years that Michelle dragged him to Rev. Jeremiah Wright's "church" on Sunday. Watch him opine that Reverend Wright is the best of what the Black Church has to offer:

Golly, I guess that Hussein is shy and doesn't want to talk about the all the good stuff that he heard from Rev. Wright. That's OK - we can help him out on that:

Kids, can you say lying crapsack? I knew you could! How long do thing it will be before Rev. Wright gets a sleepover at the White House if Obama gets elected?

Democrats plan to nationalize your 401(k) plan

Democrats want to confiscate 401(k) retirement accounts
The other day I observed that seeing as how Democrat foolishness had screwed the mortgage market and allowed Cuba to grab vast oil reserves off our shores, what could they destroy next?

It turns out they weren't merely satisfied with trashing 401(k) retirement plans by destroying the financial markets through forcing banks to give mortgages to deadbeats in the name of affirmative action - now they want to confiscate the funds in the 401(k) accounts themselves. Oh yeah, they'll  invest the money in low-yield goverment bonds and give you an IOU, but not one you can pass intact to your heirs if you die of apoloexy over their thievery. Kind of like Social Security, eh?

Sounds sort of 3rd World-ish doesn't it? That's because it is - see Argentina spreads the wealth:
The country's mediagenic socialist president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, announced Tuesday the state would "protect" private pensions from "policies of plunder" by proposing to hand them over to the government.

Praising her own scheme, she claimed Argentina would "set an example" for global financial crisis management by pulling $29.5 billion out of the private sector, and making it public.

As aghast as Argentines are about this, Americans should be too, because a Democratic supermajority in Congress would have similar ideas about nationalizing 401(k)s.


But, under the ruse of "protecting" Argentines from their own decisions, everyone will soon be forced into an involuntary pay-as-you-go program, like U.S. Social Security. Not only will the private assets be managed by bureaucrats, pension-holders will be paid what the government dictates.

With commodity prices falling sharply, the Argentine treasury strained for revenue, and the population aging, it's unlikely to be more than the $200 a month pensioners currently are paid. In fact, it's likely to be much less.

The assets are likely to be spent by government — not invested. It will save the government about $3.2 billion in interest payments since the government won't pay interest on $16 billion of government bonds in pension assets that it would own.

The Argentine Congress says it will ensure that assets are used for the pensions, but with money fungible and Argentine fiscal transparency weak, it's an easily skirted requirement.


Right now, markets see the pension grab as a sign of governmental insolvency following a 40% surge in spending this year in socialist redistribution schemes, and amid a political climate of blaming businesses.

"We believe that the actual motivation of the reform is to capture the flows of the private pension funds to cover the government's financing needs in the context of a severe credit crunch," said analyst Pablo Morra at Goldman Sachs Monday.

Because Argentina defaulted on $95 billion of sovereign debt in 2001, blaming its bondholders then unsatisfactorily settling its arrears, it's pretty well priced itself out of global capital markets. With $16 billion in bonds maturing in 2009 and 2010, and no new revenue in sight, the government seems to want that private pool of pension cash — $4.2 billion in contributions a year — to pay its bills and carry on as usual.

Sounds like a Barack Obama wet dream fer sure. All your money belongs to them. If you let them get away with it.

Obama says, "All your money are belong to us."

Obama says all your money are belong to us
Ole Barry Obama has taken great care to pretend during the presidential campaign that he's just a mildly left of center politician when the reality is that he is a crazed radical from the fever swamps of American far-leftism and race-baiting black liberation theology. Dig the cool cat as he says that the Supreme Court should have confiscated the assets of those nasty white Americans and redistributed them. 

For a "professor" that taught constitutional law, it seems a tad extreme doesn't it? Naw, that's because Barack views the Constitution as "a fundamental flaw of this country that carries on to this day." I guess if he gets elected President and it comes time to take the oath of office he'll put his hands on his crotch like he does during the national anthem.
