Massachusetts Ballot Question 1

October 31, 2008

A yes vote will repeal the income tax here in the Peoples Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

I recommend not just voting yes, but HELL YES!

Our state government is corrupt and has been proven time and time again that they can’t be trusted with the citizen’s money.

Question 1 won’t stop them from raising other taxes. Already done that to the tune of some $200 million already this year.

Of course, our tax payer paid for Cadillac driving democrat governor will paint a story of doom and gloom and how orphans and the elderly will be the hardest hit. How does he know that, because that is what he is going to do instead of giving up his ride and cutting back on the wide spread waste and corruption in our state government.

How about getting read of the Mass Turnpike Authority with its six figure income board and handing control of the Pike over to the state highway department?
Here is another one, the state Liquor License Board, who get paid $85K ($100K for the chairman) for a part time job that could be handled by half of the six person staff who works for the board members.

Sadly the poster person for our state government is democrat state senator Diane Wilkerson, who is running for reelection, despite being arrested for accepting $23,500 in an FBI undercover operation. Given that Wilkerson has been reelected six times already, even after convictions for non-payment of taxes, I’d give her pretty good odds of winning.
Remember that Sen. Wilkerson had the support of our own democrat Gov. Deval Patrick. Gov. Patrick also is a strong supporter of Barak Obama. I do have some questions about his judgement in such matters.

Bottom line, the government in Massachusetts has shown itself unfit to be trusted with the money of citizens of the Commonwealth. It is time to deny them access to some of those funds.

Friday’s Movie Picks

October 31, 2008

In honor of Halloween, here are today’s movie picks.

Young Frankenstein, a comedic tip of the hat to the classics.

Innocent Blood, vampires, mobsters, cops, comedy and casual nudity from Anne Parillaud. There is a lot to like in this film.

Near Dark, a darker look at the modern vampire. Great cast of bloodsuckers roaming the American southwest.

An American Werewolf in London, a lighthearted look of what can go wrong when you don’t stay on the road and don’t “ware the moon.” Just remember Jack, he didn’t mean to call you meatloaf.

The Friday B-Movie List

Obama fails math

October 30, 2008

Even the “in the tank” AP is pointing out the obvious, Obama’s numbers don’t add up.

Obama’s assertion that “I’ve offered spending cuts above and beyond” the expense of his promises is accepted only by his partisans. His vow to save money by “eliminating programs that don’t work” masks his failure throughout the campaign to specify what those programs are—beyond the withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

THE FACTS: His plan does not lower premiums by $2,500, or any set amount. Obama hopes that by spending $50 billion over five years on electronic medical records and by improving access to proven disease management programs, among other steps, consumers will end up saving money. He uses an optimistic analysis to suggest cost reductions in national health care spending could amount to the equivalent of $2,500 for a family of four. Many economists are skeptical those savings can be achieved, but even if they are, it’s not a certainty that every dollar would be passed on to consumers in the form of lower premiums.

THE FACTS: His proposals—the tax cuts, the low-cost loans, the $15 billion a year he promises for alternative energy, and more—cost money, and the country could be facing a record $1 trillion deficit next year. Indeed, Obama recently acknowledged—although not in his commercial—that: “The next president will have to scale back his agenda and some of his proposals.”

More democrat vote fraud in Ohio

October 30, 2008

Here is another case of a democrat illegally registering to vote in Ohio.

Amy Little, 49, has been a registered Democrat in New York since 1991, and Ulster County election officials said she voted in the party primary here in February.

But in October, Little registered to vote in Ohio.

Her boss, democrat Congressman John Hall fired her. She had the bad luck to get caught and actually have her crime published in the local media.

democrats attack GOP office in Virginia

October 29, 2008

WXII reports that “Two people were arrested and charged Monday afternoon with assaulting several GOP campaign workers at the campaign headquarters in Galax, Va.”

One of the democrats “sprayed Mace on five of the [GOP campaign] workers” while the other physically assaulted another campaign worker.

Both democrats were arrested by the local police and charged with assault.

Hold on to your wallets

October 29, 2008

The “official” Obama line was that he was going to “cut taxes” for 95% of working Americans. Even the 40% who don’t pay any federal income tax! His Trillion dollars plus of new spending was going to come from taxing only those who made over $250,000 a year.

Hmmm…I don’t think the math on that ones adds up.

It seems that someone in the Obama campaign has figured out how to use a calculator, since as TigerHawk points out, the income level of those who are going to pay for the Obama plans of a Socialist America keeps dropping. Joe Biden is now saying it’s $150,000. When the Trillion plus dollars starts getting spent, it’s going to drop to everyone who earns a legal paycheck.

Even the Hollywood left thinks MSNBC is "completely out of control"

October 29, 2008

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, who produced many campaign videos for the Clintons as well as several hit TV shows says that she’d “prefer a lunch date with right-leaning Fox News star Sean Hannity over left-leaning MSNBC star Keith Olbermann?”.

You have to be pretty far off the deep end of rational for a group of Hollywood liberals to accuse a “news” organization of liberal media bias.

Ms. Bloodworth-Thomason went on to say that “Democrats have been worse than Republicans as far as personal attacks on candidates are concerned.”

Massachusetts democrat arrested by the FBI

October 28, 2008

Color me not surprised. In fact, the real question is what took them so long?
Multiple term democrat Massachusetts State Senator Dianne Wilkerson was charged with attempted extortion as a public official and theft of honest services as a state senator. She faces up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines on each count.

This is not Senator Wilkerson’s first brush with corruption.
The number of times this fine example of the Massachusetts democrat party has been reelected: six.

Massive fundraising fraud at the Obama Campaign.

October 25, 2008

Barack Obama may now be running the biggest underground finance operation since Nixon deployed the plumbers as his key operatives in 1972.

They Knew.

October 25, 2008

Thirteen Barack Obama campaign workers, including Obama Ohio spokeswoman Olivia Alair “requested” that an Ohio elections board to pull their names from the rolls.

This came after a local prosecutor told the Obama Campaign staff in Ohio that all of their workers who filed voter registration forms in Ohio had to meet permanent-residency rules, or face possible felony charges.
