Could it be a landslide?

Posted by Admin on August 29, 2008

Check out the AOL straw poll for August 29, 2008…  Obama isn’t even leading in ONE state after the announcement of Sarah Palin for VP…

Obviously it’s too early to tell if this lead will last.  And, regardless it’ll be a hard fight – particularly as the smears, sexism, and other negative tactics against Palin are already starting in the MSM and in the Obama campaign.  (If you doubt it just look over on http://www.DemocraticUnderground.com – if you thought they really respected women?  You may change your mind after reading some of the threads discussing Mrs. Palin).  This is definitely not “over”, and we can’t rest on our laurels as it were.

However, the situation sure isn’t looking that good for Obama considering his acceptance speech from his “Temple-for-a-day” was less than 24 hours ago!  Coverage of his speech has been all but swept off the radar…  And, it looks like people are liking what they’ve seen of Sarah Palin so far.

Could it be true? Is Sarah “Barracuda” Palin McCain’s Pick?

Posted by Admin on August 29, 2008

I, like many have been following the rumors, on top of rumors floating around the internet and media last night and this morning speculating who will be McCain’s pick… (I really need some sleep so I apologize if this is a little hard to read! LOL)

It would appear that Romney is OUT.  Likewise, Pawlenty has said he is NOT McCain’s pick…

Who’s creating all the buzz this morning? Alaska Governor Sarah Heath “Barracuda” Palin, that’s who!  And, if this turn out to be an accurate “guess”, then this election might already be over.

As it is McCain has effectively pushed the news of Obama’s acceptance speech off the radar less than 12 hours after he finished it!  A masterful stroke of political genius by McCain’s campaign.  As for the rumors?  The media is going NUTS trying to figure this out.  They have tried to crack McCain’s campaign, but have been unsuccessful thus far…  I can’t even imagine the stress Obama’s strategists are going through at the moment – months of planning could be dashed within a matter of hours.

After spending quite some time last night reading about Governor Palin, I cannot express how happy I will be if indeed McCain has chosen her.  I was incredibly impressed.  For a quick review of Gov. Palin’s bio and such, please see the following profile on Wikipedia: Sarah Heath Palin.

Here’s what I wrote a little while ago on one of my favorite Conservative Message Boards about her:

An 80-90% approval rating??? How much better can you get? Fighting against corruption in her OWN PARTY – right on! A beautiful woman, a loving mother. A woman who knows how to work hard (was a commercial fisherman with her husband in ALASKA no less!!!), can hunt, fish and last, but definitely not least is a VERY intelligent, strong, take no bull, CONSERVATIVE woman!

I’m all for Palin! Praying and hoping here that McCain has chosen her!

(I wonder if they’ll play Barracuda at the convention if it’s her? That was the nickname her teammates gave her back in HS on their championship Basketball team! LOL Sounds like someone you’d LOVE to have in your corner!)

MORE TO COME VERY SOON!!!

PS — More and more reports are coming in that seem to confirm this pick for McCain…  Of course, nothing is for sure until she steps out on that stage!

Something to Ponder: Has Radical Feminism Paved the Way for Islam in America?

Posted by Admin on September 14, 2006

SOMETHING TO PONDER…
HAS RADICAL FEMINISM PAVED THE WAY
FOR ISLAM IN AMERICA?
Updated: 9/17/06 1:00 a.m. – Added several links under Current Events

Most often we only see and speak of the danger of Islam in terms of the radical, violent elements that plague our world. However, there is something even more sinister afoot within the world of Islam – the ability to trick a woman into thinking she is safer following the teachings of Mohammed, but instead leading her into a world of true slavery and abuse.

I have often pondered myself why the left and feminists in particular would insist on defending a society where the subjugation of women is astounding. It is far worse than anything the feminists in the 70s were fighting against while I was growing up. Islam itself is a culture in which for example, rape is prosecuted as adultery with the punishment against the woman being death by stoning. That is, unless a woman has four male witnesses that actually observed the act in question — including the act of penetration itself. (If the woman is Muslim, the witnesses must be Muslim men as well.)

Still, Islam finds among its “devout” some women in America as well as other “westernized” cultures. What is the attraction? Could it be that western men have become too feminized by their attempts to appease the “modern woman”? Could it be that some women yearn for the protection and classical family structure of the past?

I have a hunch that women are drawn to Islam because it appears to the outsider that these are more classical men. That Islamic males revere their women and believe in “protecting” them from harm – even that of a roving salacious eye. However, when one looks deeper it becomes frighteningly obvious that most of these men consider women as their possessions, indeed that is what they are taught by some of their clerical leaders – that women truly belong to their husbands in every sense of the word, and their very life is in his hands.
