For those of you wondering who these guys are, they are former presidents Herbert Hoover, Jimmy Carter and the new president-elect of the United States, Barack Obama. I really hope the latter can learn from the former two. If you do a little research on the tax cuts and tax credits that were signed into office by president George Bush, you will find that a large portion of them will expire on January 1, 2011. I hope Mr. Obama knows that it’s not just about talk and rhetoric anymore. If he’s serious about helping out the folks on “Main Street” these tax credits are a great place to start.
I really hope that Mr. Obama will become a dynamic leader for our country instead of falling back on the liberal, partisan politics that he has exhibited thus far in his political career. Right now, he’s little more than a charismatic black guy with lots of promises and a big smile. I’m willing to give the guy a shot, I’m just not holding my breath…

Over the weekend it was revealed that Barack Obama gave an interview to a San Francisco newspaper in January in which he promised to “bankrupt” the coal industry. What we have here is another prime example of the media sitting on information crucial to the election because it might harm their chosen candidate. However, more importantly, what we have here is something that might blow the lid off of Barack’s victory party plans.
These statements have the potential to be a huge factor in election on Tuesday since the coal industry plays such a vital role in some of the most important swing states like Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Indiana and Pennsylvania. The president of the Ohio Coal Association has already come out and said that the “Obama-Biden ticket spells disaster for America’s coal industry and the tens of thousand of Americans who work in it.”
Coal is vital to the energy grid and the economy of this nation. More than 50 percent of the nation’s electricity is generated at coal plants. Obama readily admitted in his interview with the San Francisco paper that energy prices will “skyrocket”if he is able to implement his plan. So, in addition to taxing the living shit out of us, he also plans to drive our electric bills into the stratosphere. That’s exactly what our struggling economy needs right now, isn’t it? If John McCain is a George Bush re-run, then Barack Obama is a Jimmy Carter sequel.
I truly think that this news could have a big effect on tomorrow’s election. Not as big of one had this information been readily available since January like it should have been, but an effect none the less. Who knows if it’ll be the slight nudge McCain needs to pull the upset? But just in case it is, I’ll be borrowing a little bit of firepower from Josh or Jerrod tomorrow. I don’t want to be ill prepared when the “streets run red with blood” after the second Civil War breaks out because of the defeat of the Messiah. And that last comment is not made in jest. I think if McCain wins this thing, cities will burn and people will get hurt. Just the type of reaction you’d expect from the side of the aisle that claims to be peace-loving and open-minded. Is there anyone who will display more anger, hatred and vitriol than a liberal in the face of dissent?

It’s been a few days since we’ve had a politically-charged post, so without further ado, let me give you this excellent commentary on the impact of the ridiciulously high corporate tax rate in America. This video comes courtesy of The Agitator who had this to say about it:
“I’m amused when I hear Obama talk about giving tax credits to American companies that create jobs here in the U.S. as opposed to overseas. If he agrees that high taxes are the main reason why U.S. companies are moving jobs overseas, wouldn’t it be a better idea just to lower the corporate income tax all around? We have the second-highest corporate income tax in the world. To say that companies should stay here and pay the penalty out of “patriotism” is just silly. Companies can (and should) make decisions that benefit shareholders, not to benefit the governments of whatever borders they happen to be located between.”

How long before a commenter calls me a racist for posting this audio?

Not that it’s hard to make a hippie look stupid in public, but Sarah Palin does it so eloquently.

The magic word on every Democrat’s lips right now is deregulation. Because lefties only understand subjects in terms of buzzwords, they’ve been yip-yapping about a trend (imaginary) of financial deregulation from the Bush administration that’s led to our current economic woes. The roots of this disaster actually go far deeper than any one set of regulations, any one party or any one candidate. Sebastian Mallaby of the Washington Post gives a little insight into what really led to this mess and why strictly blaming deregulation could spell doom for Obama’s presidency before he even takes office.

Apparently both Barack Obama and Joe Biden voted for the Bridge to Nowhere – twice – before deciding against it. In one vote, they even prevented funds from being diverted from the Bridge to Nowhere to the post-Katrina reconstruction efforts in Louisiana.
Bravo, gentlemen, bravo.
