Did You Know that Bush and McCain Were Cousins

President Bush fundraised for John McCain this week. But McCain didn’t want the press to take photographs of him with Bush. Moveon.org’s TV ad is making sure voters see the two men stand together.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It’s not your average political ad—it’s funny, quirky and light-hearted. It’s been getting tons of press coverage—including the Washington Post, MSNBC and the Associated Press—and really great reviews.

This ad is just one piece of our big Bush-McCain Challenge campaign. Already, over half a million people have taken the challenge quiz online.

And on Wednesday, thousands of MoveOn members gathered on street corners from New Jersey to New Mexico to take the Bush-McCain challenge to voters. The coverage in local papers is rolling in from around the country, and we got a bunch of great eyewitness reports, too—Donald from New Hampshire told us it was amazing and the best part was; “talking with several Republicans and Independents and then seeing the look of SHOCK register on their face when they were wrong, and learned about McCain’s REAL views on these issues!”

On Scott McClellan, No Profit For Lies

Moveon.org has started a petition drive –

There are laws to prevent criminals from profiting by selling their stories.  But after spending years defending the Bush administration and perpetuating the lies that led our country into war, Scott McClellan is poised to make bank—his tell-all book is a bestseller and he may make hundreds of thousands or millions.

Meanwhile, our troops are still dying in Iraq.

Coming clean is admirable. But McClellan shouldn’t profit off the role he played in our nation’s largest foreign policy blunder.

So we have a proposition for him. Let’s call on him to donate all of the proceeds from his book to a group that helps Iraq veterans, like Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. If we make enough noise, he’ll probably be asked about it on tomorrow’s Sunday shows (he’s on all three!)—so please sign on and pass this around.  Clicking below will add your name:

Donate The Proceeds of Your Book.

The petition reads:
People who helped lie this country into an unnecessary war should not be rewarded for it. Scott McClellan should donate all the proceeds from his book to a group that helps Iraq veterans—like Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.

Okay So White Women Aren’t Supporting Senator Barack Obama

I can’t hold this thought or comment any longer….

Everywhere I turn, nearly every blog that I am reading and every major news outlet, which I can’t even figure out why I keep tuning into — is saying, that white women are no longer supporting Senator Obama.

Therefore, (my words)

“He doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the fight against McCain the Republican?”

Okay, I’ll give you the Senator’s numbers has declined within this segment of Voters…..

However — Hillary Clinton’s figures and show of support from the women in the African American Black community has sunk to an all time low. Her support has slowly but rapidly disintegrated – Poof it’s gone – Vanished into thin air!

And, maybe just maybe the lack of support from this population of people – called Black women – has caused her to what ?? consider do I want or will I accept the lesser of rank called ‘Vice President’.

Is it possibly that this slip or rather loss is the very reason, that she must consider this?

Why is everyone running around here acting like the ‘non-support of white women’ is more important than having the support and votes of African American women?

What I’m hearing is this — their vote is more important than… you guessed it — mines or my sisters women of color – black brown pink purple rainbow whatever you want to call it – Negro or Colored.

Geesh, it’s enough to make a person wanna spit…

Let’s Review Some of the Headlines & Titles:

  • Boomer White Women Dropping Support for Obama
  • White Women Cold Towards Obama
  • Obama’s Stock Drops Among White Women
  • Obama Leads Clinton, But Trails With White Women
  • Obama’s Weatlthy And Privileged Women Supporters: More Than Just A Generation Gap!
  • Obama needs Clinton’s white women voters to win in November
  • Obama needs support of white women voters

Now This is my Food for Thought as I summarize within my head…

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton has the show of support and votes from the White Women – yet she’s losing.

Senator Barack *Hussein* Obama has the show of support and votes from the Afrikkkan American Black Women – and he is winning, by all right he is our Democratic Presidential Nominee for 2008.

I feel everyone’s vote is important! And this is the point that I only wish to make. No citizens vote in America should be considered or spoken of as ‘secondary’ or ‘less’.

Hussein, the Senator’s middle name was stated in order to symbolize with honor and respect, that which any people should have in reference as to who they are – it’s their birthright. It is so past the time for every nationality & race of people to allow America to continue to dictate what is appropriate in their culture. Whether it is a name, their language/dialect/diction or their culture’s garb dress faith or religion. It’s time to quit giving mainstream America all that power — your power!

US Marines are forcing Christianity onto the Iraqis

Sad to say, but this is a part of having America come into your home…. they are going to tell you that Christianity is right and your religion and faith is all wrong, but the real plight is about your conversion.

Our, U.S. Marines are handing out this coin, imprinted with a Gospel verse, to Fallujah residents.

Anad said, a Marine slipped a coin out of his pocket and put it in his hand.

Out of fear, he accepted it, Anad said. When he was inside the city, the college student said, he looked at one side of the coin. “Where will you spend eternity?” it asked.

He flipped it over, and on the other side it read, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16.”

You can read the full article at McClatchy Washington Bureau.

Here’s a comment that one of the readers left in regards to the “shiny fake coin”.

Hi there! We’ve bombed your country, crippled your infrastructure, killed thousands of your citizens, and pretty much ruined any chance for you or your remaining loved ones to have any semblance of a normal life in your homeland. But we’re hoping this shiny fake coin that says you’re going to hell unless you accept Jesus as Lord will somehow comfort you.

Sincerely,
Handful of Well-Intentioned but not-so-bright US Marines

US Army will remove Three Wooden Crosses beside the Kosovo Military Chapel

According to a report by WorldNetDaily, high-ranking US Army personnel have secretly discussed and approved plans to remove, and possibly destroy, the three crosses standing on the exterior grounds of Peacekeeper’s Chapel, which serves US soldiers stationed at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo. The crosses will be removed within the next few weeks, and there were no indications of plans to notify soldiers of the decision at the time of the WND report.

This is a direct result of US Army regulation and policy, the regulation reads –

“Distinctive religious symbols, such as crosses, crucifixes, the Star of David, menorah, and other religious symbols, will not be affixed or displayed permanently on the chapel exterior or grounds.” (Army Reg. 165-1, 13-3.d)

May the President Appropriately Invoke God? Evaluating the Embryonic Stem-Cell Vetoes

Recent Scholarly Article(s) on Church-State, Law and Religion

From SSRN:

ABSTRACT
President George W. Bush has twice vetoed measures to provide federal funds for embryonic stem-cell research requiring the destruction of human embryos. Each veto was premised in part upon his religious beliefs. President Bush’s reliance upon his faith has provoked a strong negative reaction. This Essay argues that this criticism is baseless.

The Essay demonstrates that important political leaders spanning three centuries – including Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, Jr. – have invoked religious beliefs in explaining their positions. The principle of separation of church and state, properly understood, is not a persuasive basis for criticizing this religious heritage. President Bush, in relying upon his faith to justify his vetoes, acted in accord with well-established national tradition.

The Essay also examines various arguments that religious discourse in the public square is normatively inappropriate and thus should be excluded. All of these critiques fail. Anyone genuinely committed to diversity and to democratic ideals should support a rich array of disputants in public policy controversies, including religious believers openly proclaiming their faith-based values.
