Oh, Barak! Geesh dude!


So, everyone has commented on all the video's circulating... you know with Barak's preacher teaching Racism/ hate to his congregation. SO for now, I will with hold my opinions (you know what everyone says about opinions...) and ask you guys to comment. Especially anyone who can shed a better light on this situation cause I really cant think of one out for this preacher business. So all my camp Obama peeps speak out!
Please remember to be courteous and respectful to all opinions since we are all friends and love each others. Try not to make it personal.
Discuss.
Also make sure to vote in that Poll on the Right.

i feel as though it is unfortunately turning in to a racism race rather than political. I don't feel as though that should matter- and doesn't to me...
Has Hillary menioned being a woman??? or a preacher preached about femanism and twisted it to her favor to be viewed and discussed by all?? should these superficial things matter all for ou president in this day and age???

It will come down to a race thing. Mabey it should, mabey it shouldn't, but his connection to this "freak" cannot be ignored. Its just politics, you have to be squeeky clean. Anyway, what really matters is Obama WILL raise taxes and not renew the Bush tax cuts (set to expire in 2010), and he WILL w/d troops in IRAQ. Both are bad. I know some people will object to w/d from IRAQ, and that is ok. Lets let Obama and McCain duke that out because its too long to explain on a blog. Taxes. Ummm. lets see here... this should explain it all.


It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories below think Bush is scamming them. If Obama or Hillary are elected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories below can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened. Not sure how this will post under this format, but the first figure is OBAMA/CLINTON the second is McCain based on their pledges in relation to taxes. My advice is, before you jump on the bandwagon of "Change we can believe in", make sure you know what "Change" Obama is referring to. These tax increases are one of those changes.

Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

Holy Moly! Who is this smart person with all the numbers? Very interesting!! I mean I knew they would raise taxes but had no idea HOW MUCH>

In addition, most of us here are married making gross greater than 125K for the couple. If you vote Obama, congrats, you just made our taxes increase $7500/year. Add this on to a struggling economy and you have NOT GOOD SITUATION written all over that place. I am obviously for smaller gov't intervention: Take a little responsiblity for yourself, let the markets trade freely, control inflation and protect our country and my kids so they can be disiplined adults and live in an open economy with opportunity. If you are happy with your lifestyle and rights now, lets just remember that over 300,000 of our boys/girls died for our freedom that we enjoy today back in former wars. Lets just put that in perspective to IRAQ and don't jump all on the "but we aren't there for the right reasons" crap. Think where we would be today if we pulled out off WWI and WWII after 5,000 of our best passed away fighting for our freedom. As a matter of fact, there was severe backlash in the first years of those wars, but we stood and fought anyway. Stand strong, even in the face of doubt.

Hello LG. Thanks for letting me vent on your blog and I openly accept any backlash as I know its a sensitive subject. These numbers are from the actual Bush tax cuts that are implemented until 2010 vs. the old Clinton tax policy that existed during his administration (Obama and Hilary have promised that they will not renew the Bush cuts which will default us back to Clintons tax policy). Again, thanks for letting my express my views. I respect all that come against my post and look forward to a healthy discussion. It only makes us smarter by having these communications.

Barak is a total mess... Hilary is a total mess.. McCain is just old and bitter.. Oh what to do...

Whoever you are "anonymous", I agree 200%!! You are sooooo right!Kudos to you! :-)

Kyle said...

Anonymous is absolutely correct. Unfortunately, this is coming down to race and people will vote for Obama b/c he is black or because they feel like it is the right thing to do based simply on color. The man does not give straight forward answers to questions. When asked about the issues, he doesn't give answers, he uses pretty words and phrases that sound good to people. He is very good at that. It wouldn't surprise me at all if he was an Al-Queda plant that has been here for years and their master plan is finally taking place.

Kyle i think about that everyday.. Americans are so dumb!! But no one on this blog of course! ;)

Cary said...

Kyle, you are right! Obama would make a great motivational speaker but he scares me to death as our president! And it's amazing, his grandmother was Muslim UNTIL he announced running for president. Now she is a "Christian?" Yes, many will vote for him because of his color just as many will vote for Clinton because she is female. Go figure!

I haven't followed the preacher thing much, but it concerns me that Obama doesn't seem to communicate clearly to the public. He seems to be a bit of a talk show host to me. If Obama were to be elected, I think the general public would have NO IDEA who we just elected because there is not alot of transparency to his character. Clinton would be a disaster because she is a Socialist. McCain, who knows?
