More Racial Divisiveness from Diuguid

Lewis Diuguid is a piece of work, a veritable race card just waiting to be played. First this mental midget equates "socialism" with a racial code word. As Fezzik said in Princess Bride, "I don't think that word means what you think it means".

After a little more research, I uncovered this gem. As you'll see, Diuguid discusses the grades of the American electorate based on how they vote.

Vote for a woman? Pass.
Vote for a black? Pass.
Vote for a Hispanic? Pass.
Vote for a white Mormon male? Pass....only on religous grounds.

Apparently in the eyes of this racist author, the only failing grade would be a vote for a white male Protestant. As a Catholic, I'm left to wonder if I'm sufficiently "oppressed" in Giuduin's eyes to justify a passing grade if I'm elected.

Big Shocker....He's Black!

I recently read perhaps the most ignorant editorial of all time. Mr. Lewis Diuguid of the Kansas City Star claims John McCain and Sarah Palin are using an "old code word" for black to label Barack Obama. Story here.

Believe it or not, they called him SOCIALIST! Wow, the nerve, to bring up America's sordid racial past by calling Obama a socialist! What a complete buffoon Lewis Diuguid must be. Apparently he has never heard of the socialist nor communist economic models. Apparently the fact that Obama wants to socialize healthcare has completely gone over the head of Mr. Diuguid. One wonders if he's even familiar with capitalism, other than of course it being one of those evil passions of Republicans?

Anyway, I was so shocked to see a member of the Kansas City Star's editorial board make such a ridiculuous claim that I did a search, and big shocker: Lewis Diuguid is black. In another example of a fool making his race look bad, Mr. Diuguid plays the race a game of craps.

You can love Obama because he rabidly pro infanticide. You can love him he wants to spread all our wealth around, because he spent 20 years learning why whites are evil and America be damned, or because he views babies as "punishment". Seriously, there are so many reasons for a bleeding heart race baiter to love Barack Obama. With so much to love, there's really no need to jump in over your head and make ludicrous accusations against John McCain.

So Mr. Diuguid, perhaps you should limit your future writings to things about which you can speak intelligently....which apparently doesn't include economics.

Thank You, Boneheads

Life was very good until this recent financial crisis. Personally, my retirement accounts are down nearly 30%. My children's college accounts are down 25%. I have to listen to a Republican candidate for president talk about nationalizing our country's mortgage portfolio. Why?

Because a bunch of idiots took out mortgages they couldn't afford.

Because a bunch of fools took out interest only mortgages.

Because a bunch of nitwits took out home equity loans to buy boats and take vacations.

Because a bunch of irresponsible, self centered, short sighted airheads assumed the value of their house would rise 10% annually in perpetuity.

Because a bunch of morons took out negative amortization loans.

Because a bunch of bleeding hearts insisted America is racist, so they forced the financial institutions to change lending standards so otherwise unqualified borrowers could qualify for a CRA mortgage loan under a different set of standards.

Because a bunch of jerks issued loans that they knew would never be repaid.

Because a bunch of arrogant pricks assumed they could package away risks by bundling bad mortgages into a worse CMO.

Because a bunch of tools on Wall Street squeezed their fellow institutions in the midst of the crisis, all but ensuring the failure of several major banks.

So who's left to pay the bill? Me. And every other borrower who has been living within his or her means over the past decade. We pay our mortages on time, we pay our taxes, we work hard at our jobs for a 3% annual raise, we teach our children about responsibility, commitment, and honor. What do we get in return? A nation in a major hangover because of the drunken excess of irresponsible borrowers, greedy lenders, and Wall Street financiers who aren't quite as smart as they think they are.

And just to be crystal clear - this isn't about Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative, black or white, or Catholic or Protestant. This is about responsibility vs. irresponsibility, and if you are in the former category, thank you for your role in causing this crisis.

Another Free Pass for Obama

When is Barack Obama going to get asked a difficult question? How much longer will the media pretend that Obama's ultra left wing ideology is irrelevant to this campaign?

Questions that should have been asked tonight:

  • Senator Obama, are you in favor of aborting babies in the 8th month of their development? As a follow up, why do you believe that abortion victims who manage to survive deserve no protection under our laws? What do you think future generations will say regarding the fact that over 1,500,000 unborn babies are destroyed in our nation every year?

  • Senator Obama, why do you believe black people should jump to the head of the line in front of white people for college admissions and government contracts? What is it specifically about white people which makes you think our government should institutionally send whites to the back of the line?

  • Senator Obama, your pastor of 20 years, the man who married you and Michelle and baptized your children, claims that white America is racist. He claims that September 11th was, in effect, punishment of whites for their racism. Why did you remain in his church long after he made such comments?

  • Senator Obama, name one Republican sponsored piece of legislation for which you've voted in favor.

    Fools at CNN Mock Palin, Give Biden a Pass

    If you bother to view CNN's website on a daily basis as I do, you'll have noticed an average of 3 negative reports on Sarah Palin every day.

    If you happen to check into their news network once or twice a day as I do, you're bound to view a negative story on Sarah Palin. Most recently, the idiots at CNN spent thousands of dollars to go to Alaska, to the remote village where Russia is viewable.

    They then ask villagers many of whom don't even know Palin is the Republican VP candidate if they have interactions with Russia. They ask if they ever have any encounters with Russians. Clearly the entire story was a pathetic attempt to discredit Palin for her comments that her proximity to Russia as governor provided some measure of foreign policy experience.

    More recently, Joe Biden stated that President Roosevelt went on television and calmed the nation in 1929 when the market crashed. As we all know, Roosevelt wasn't president in 1929 and television did not exist.

    So to be fair, shouldn't CNN make a journey to the Smithsonian Institute to view the television sets circa 1929 of which Biden spoke? They could interview a curator and state "Joe Biden mentioned televisions were in use in 1929. Can you show us such a television?" They could then travel to Roosevelt's presidential library and ask for presidential papers from 1929 to really bring home the point that Biden didn't know what he was talking about.

    I'm confident such an idea was never considered to the idiots at CNN - they're too busy dreaming up the next way to discredit Sarah Palin.
