1. Unlike 1994, They Saw This Year Coming

The Democrats tell anyone who will listen that they were prepared for this year. Unlike 1994, the Democrats say they saw this year coming.The spin the Democrats would have us take and run with is that they are prepared as in they have a game plan and are executing it to mitigate losses.Really?Seems to me that the Democrats saw this year coming too and that explains precisely why the rats are fleeing the ship early.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. American Stalin: Alan Grayson And His Views on the Anti-Defamation League, the Military, and Other Things

You might well say it is extreme hyperbole to call Alan Grayson an American Stalin. You would be right. But it is no different than what Alan Grayson, in extremist, hyperbolic lies, is doing to his opponent Daniel Webster.As has been well documented, Grayson attacked Bill Clinton Daniel Webster for getting academic deferments from Vietnam and then failing his medical exam, thus denying him the ability to serve his country.Grayson then referred to Webster as “Taliban Dan” selectively editing Webster’s comments to make it sound like Webster was saying exactly the opposite of what Webster really was saying.What’s more, Grayson demanded the Federal Election Commission investigate and incarcerate one of his critics who claims Grayson is crazy.Calling Grayson an American Stalin is no less onerous that what Grayson himself is doing. In fact, what Grayson is doing is worse. He is an elected official using the power of his office to threaten and intimidate critics, attack females in Congress as “whores”, and fund his campaign to slime opponents with edited video footage making it appear the opponents are saying exactly the opposite of what they did say.Grayson has become the politician who attacks his opponent for having a thespian daughter.Beyond the lies, however, lies an ugly truth about Alan Grayson that the media ought to pursue.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. The Dead Just Keep On Voting

There are 116,000 dead eligible voters in Massachusetts. And in Florida, one major newspaper recently investigated and reported that almost 15,000 dead Floridians are still hanging around on the election rolls – just six weeks before one of the most vicious and important election cycles in our history. Can it be the sun? Most States have similar statistics. Every two years, states must report to the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC) information about the integrity and accuracy of their voter rolls. The latest report is not good news for our democracy – or our international reputation. South Dakota, Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Indiana report in excess of a dozen counties with more registered voters than breathing human beings old enough to vote. West Virginia, Maryland, Iowa and North Carolina also reported having eligible deceased voters on their rolls. The list goes on and on. And so does the real risk that these voters will have illegal votes registered in their names. Close races, like the Franken/Coleman race in Minnesota can be decided on just a handful of votes. We may have to go to purple thumbprints at this rate. Hugo Chavez must be howling at this American disgrace.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. A Pitchfork Moment: How Washington State Voters Can Shackle Serial Job Killers

If jobs are the oxygen that fuels a nation’s economy, then politicians with their heavy-handed regulations, unions and high taxes, are the serial killers that strangle the creators of those jobs.Right now, America is at a pitchfork moment. With millions unemployed and the numbers getting worse, not better, political leaders are beginning to smell the acrid odor and see the glow of the torches. With the November 2nd mid-term elections looming, the steady steps of a torch and pitchfork-wielding populace get louder and louder as unions try to rally their members to prevent a complete meltdown at the polls.Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. Gov. Strickland (D, OH) supporter attacks war veteran at rally.

Do you know this guy? image Because he went after a Iraq War veteran at a Ted Strickland rally. Dumped hot coffee on him, then came back later to give said veteran the finger (in case you were wondering whether it was deliberate or not).Please click here for the rest of the post.
