The New York Times reports that an SEC filing by the automaker states that it won’t have enough cash by January if it continues to lose money at this rate.
So now the government is going back into the car business? Oh, wait! The government doesn’t have its own money, so that means I’m going back into the car business… Oh, wait! I don’t have any money either!! I’ve invested it in bailing out those who bought too much they couldn’t pay for.

This past Sunday, in Lansing, MI, a gay group called ‘Bash Back’ infiltrated an AOG church during worship service. You can follow these links for “media support”on the story (HT to Nick for providing these links at my request):

You can also google Bash Back Lansing and you’ll find their home pages with the plans and after-action reports.
Here are excerpts of a report by Nick De Leeuw, at RightMichigan.com.
On Sunday morning, amidst worshiping congregants and following unifying prayers that our President-elect be granted wisdom as he prepares to lead our nation through difficult global, social and economic challenges, the Michigan left declared open war on peaceful church goers.
They did it with banners, chants, blasphemy, by storming the pulpit, by vandalizing the church facility, by potentially defiling the building with lewd, public, sex acts and by intentionally forcing physical confrontations with worshipers.
I returned home myself yesterday, from church and an afternoon watching football with the family, to find an email in my inbox from a friend in the Capitol City… Yesterday’s email began with an understated proclamation; “So church today was exciting…”
On Sunday, November 9, 2008 Michigan liberals sat peacefully through announcements, worship and prayer for the sick, our nation and our President-elect before staging a coordinated, disgusting and repulsive attack on worshipers and the broader concept of the church itself at Lansing’s Mount Hope Church.
The lefties were a part of a liberal organization known as Bash Back Lansing… called on “queers and trannies” from across the state and the region to converge on Lansing for what they refer to as an “action.” While many of the members claim to be anarchists ..their broader goal is stated plainly on one of their lefty blogs.
“I can tell you that we are targeting a well-known anti-queer, anti-choice radical right wing establishment.”
Mount Hope, for the record, is an evangelical, bible believing church whose members provide free 24 hour counseling, prayer lines, catastrophic care for families dealing with medical emergencies, support groups for men, women and children dealing with a wide variety of life’s troubles, crisis intervention, marriage ministries, regular, organized volunteer work in and around the city, missions in dozens of countries across the globe, a construction ministry that has built over 100 churches, schools, orphanages and other projects all over the world and an in-depth prison ministry that reaches out, touches and helps the men and women the rest of society fears the most. They also teach respect for all human life and the Biblical sanctity of marriage as an institution between one man and one woman.
This is what Michigan liberals label a “radical right wing establishment,” and over 30 of them showed up in force yesterday. Wearing secret-service style ear pieces and microphones they received the “go” from their ringleader and off they went.
Prayer had just finished when men and women stood up in pockets across the congregation, on the main floor and in the balcony. “Jesus was gay,” they shouted among other profanities and blasphemies as they rushed the stage. Some forced their way through rows of women and kids to try to hang a profane banner from the balcony while others began tossing fliers into the air. Two women made their way to the pulpit and began to kiss.
Their other props? I’ll let them tell you in their own words… from another of their liberal blogs:
“(A) video camera, a megaphone, noise makers, condoms, glitter by the bucket load, confetti, pink fabric…yeh.”
…According to a source inside the church yesterday there was a “journalist” from the Lansing City Pulse along for the ride, tipped off about the action and more interested in getting a story than in preventing the vandalism, the violence and anti-Christian hatred being spewed by the lefties. We’ll see what he files and what his editors see fit to print.
The “journalist” e-mailed Nick – you can read that e-mail in his post here.
…The church’s response? After things settled down, the blasphemy ended, the lewd props removed and the families safe from fear of additional men and women running into and past them the pastor took the stage and led the congregation in one more prayer… not for retribution, or divine justice or a celestial comeuppance (that’s what I’d have prayed for) but instead that the troubled individuals who’d just defiled the Lord’s house, so full of anger and hate, would know Jesus’ love in their lives and God’s peace that exceeds human understanding…
An effigy depicting ANY living person is just wrong! Even the guy who did this says he knows if it were Barack Obama there’d be rocks through his window!! Disgusting!
Speaking of effigies and unrest….. major cities are gearing up for civil unrest – regardless of which direction the election goes in!

Police prepare for unrest

Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.
Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.
Some worry that if Barack Obama loses and there is suspicion of foul play in the election, violence could ensue in cities with large black populations. Others based the need for enhanced patrols on past riots in urban areas (following professional sports events) and also on Internet rumors.
Democratic strategists and advocates for black voters say they understand officers wanting to keep the peace, but caution that excessive police presence could intimidate voters.
Sen. Obama (Ill.), the Democratic nominee for president, has seen his lead over rival Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) grow in recent weeks, prompting speculation that there could be a violent backlash if he loses unexpectedly.
Cities that have suffered unrest before, such as Detroit, Chicago, Oakland and Philadelphia, will have extra police deployed.
In Oakland, the police will deploy extra units trained in riot control, as well as extra traffic police, and even put SWAT teams on standby.
I know I am thankful that son, Devon, will be here in Nebraska over the election cycle and NOT in his new home base of Chicago!!
