Then Came Cain

Editorial note: I know it's been a while since my last post. I have been having technical difficulties and it took too long to get them settled. Thank You for your patience.

Last week the MSM had declared the GOP presidential race a two man race. I never thought so, Herman Cain has always been a front runner to me, and now others are starting to see that politicians are all the same and Cain is no politician. 

In his new autobiography "This Is Herman Cain" (out Oct 4), he talks about ending the cavalcade of stars going through the White House, that alone will save the taxpayers big bucks. He also talks about his fight (and victory) with cancer and how he plans to deal with his lack of foreign policy experience. 

And while the MSM is brushing it off as a nothing story, Cain scored 34% to 39% against Obama in a Rasmussen poll. This is the first time Obama polled below 40%. This bounce could be a fluke, but Cain's 9-9-9 plan seems to be resonating with Americans and like me many are tired of the same old politics as usual. 

Mitt Romney is also still polling high and considered the front runner, but Mitt is the John McCain of 2012. Barely conservative and a you know if the media likes him, that means he's bad news for us. Ultimately I don't know if Herman Cain can secure the republican nomination, but I do know that the election is still over a year away and the front runner this time in 2007 was not John McCain. A lot changes in a year.

As I reflect on 9/11/2001, many many things come to mind. Frustration over the site itself, the insignificant structures being built and the despicable mayor bloomberg that didn't allow clergy to the memorial or make enough space for all the First Responders. The lack of heart in the hijackers and their backward religion, if you love death there is no place for you in this world. Sorrow for the lost, the innocent who were just going about their day on a beautiful September morning. Most of all Pride, pride in the Firefighters and Police Officers who went well above and beyond to save people and ultimately sacrifice their own lives. Pride in our Soldiers who for 10 years have tirelessly fought and died so this atrocity would never be repeated, and pride in the People of America who despite a weak leader are standing strong in their values and beliefs. 

This is and will always be a solemn day of remeberance, not of service like Obama would like you to believe, but a day to remember the fallen and the survivors. Most importantly so we never forget and never let it happen again.

I snapped this shot in 1997 from a subway train, it just seemed perfect.

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God; for unto Thee do I pray.
O LORD, in the morning shalt Thou hear my voice; in the morning will I order my prayer unto Thee, and will look forward. - Psalm 5

Debate On Debates

So after watching the msnbc GOP debate last night I have a few questions. First I have to point out that Herman Cain is still being largely ignored at all of the debates. Before it was not just Cain getting ignored, Gary Johnson was ignored to the point of disappearing from this debate altogether. Ron Paul was also sidelined at previous debates but last night was given lots of face time. Cain was asked four questions in 2 hours and pushed himself into a couple rebuttal answers. Mostly I blame the media, they have made their choice and it is going to be a two man race from here on out, unless Romney of Perry burn out for some reason. I still say we need to leave the politicians behind and put someone in the White House who knows business and is not a beltway insider.

Now for some questions;

  • Why do journalist run these debates? 
  • Why not people who know what they are talking about rather than bobble-heads who just read what's in front of them? 
  • Why let the media dictate topics and set up the candidates to argue with each other? 
  • What will it take to get substantive questions and not lightning round nothingness? 

While the others argue the same "social security is broken" points, Herman Cain lays out a plan for how to fix it. That's what I want form all the candidates, more detailed plans on how they are going to undo the mess Obama has put us in and how they plan to put us back on track.

Just Saying

  • You'd think a guy named Jimmy Hoffa wouldn't talk so much about taking people out.
  • So it's come out that the Libyan rebel leader has ties with AlQeada, SURPRISE... Wait we knew that.
  • Another "Green Company", Solyndria, who received millions in stimulus and heavy praise from 0babma has gone belly up. The 0bama curse is the only sucessful thing 0bama's name is attached to.
  • Did you notice the zeros in mt 0bama spelling? I though it fitting since there were ZERO jobs created in the month of August.
  • All the babble on and between Perry, Romney and Bachmann reminds me of one thing Herman Cain.
  • Over the holiday 43 people were shot in New York city. Good thing guns are banned there or it would be like the wild west or something.
  • Obama promised to cut the deficit in half before his first term ended. Something tells me they won't release his school records because he was horrible at math.
  • I like Sarah Palin, but I'm also one of the many that don't want her to run for president. The RNC chair seems a better fit for her.

Daily X-tra

So far it's just a coincidence that all of these x-tra post are regarding California. This one will be no different.

As of Monday Gov. Moonbeam will sign AB131, better known as the California Dream Act. A bill stating that illegal alien  college students in California would be eligible to receive publicly funded financial aid. While it won't provide a "path to citizenship" like the federal version AB!131 will cost the already broke state of California 40,000,000,000 (billion) dollars.

Assemblyman Curt Hagman, R-Chino Hills says "Here today we don't have enough slots for all the students in California who want to attend our great institutions, there just aren't enough. So until the federal government makes immigration reform a priority and tackles that, what are we doing? We're offering false promises." Hagman also pointed out that the while the illegal students might end up with a degree it is still illegal for them to work in the state of California.

Democrats in CA are hoping this will help force the federal dream act through and pressure Obama to deal with the immigration issue. By deal with I mean giving amnesty to up to 50 million illegal aliens that invaded our Country and will be rewarded for disregarding our laws. I don't know any other place on earth that does that, and if I did I would avoid that place at all cost.

Daily X-tra

I was reading an article from the Canadian Globe and Mail, and was pleasantly surprised to read that our northern neighbors are starting to get a clue on electric cars.  That clue being they are not green, not clean and not feasible for society. All these tree huggers driving their electric cars seem to forget the charge for these short range power suckers comes from power plants, most of which burn coal. The article doesn't even get into battery cost and how many batteries you need. Not to mention the cost of disposing of the batteries every 3-5 years that they have to be replaced (same issue for hybrids btw). Something to think about before you go and buy one of these stupid cars.
