Question: What do you get when current POTUS Barack Obama makes THESE types of statements?
(7) Tonight you blamed the economic crisis on the “failed theories of the last eight years,” yet tonight you also criticized homeowners who put little or nothing down and purchase homes without the ability to pay their mortgages if “something goes wrong.” Sir, which is it?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think there should be a time limit to the whining about, complaining about, and blaming of the economy being Bush’s fault. The last two years, where we really hit the deficit hard, were years the Democrats were in power over both branches of Congress. But do you hear anyone whining about that? Not likely, right?
Seriously, Mr. President, enough already! You, as a Senator, helped make this deficit – that is the days you were actually ACTING as a Senator, I mean.
I’m just saying…
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…

Note: I tried the switchboard number given in her piece for over an hour and did not get through, only the “All circuits are currently busy….” message. I finally googled my two Senators and got both their DC and local phone numbers. Got through to Hagel’s office – no surprise, he’s voting FOR it. Still not able to get through to Nelson’s office.
Additionally, BOTH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES HAVE SAID THEY WILL VOTE FOR THIS MONSTROSITY!!
God help us all!

Just yesterday, Carol was heard uttering that John McCain had selected a running mate:
“whose primary qualification seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion.”
Mrs. Fowler has now issued the following ::cough:: ::LAME:: ::cough:: apology:
“I personally admire and respect the difficult choices that women make everyday, and I apologize to anyone who finds my comment offensive. I clumsily was making a point about people in South Carolina who may vote based on a single issue. Whether it’s the environment, the economy, the war or a woman’s right to choose, there are people who will cast their vote based on a single issue. That was the only point I was attempting to make.”
Now the obviousness of her point is just as clear as that of the snafu her husband was recently in. Fowler was secretly recorded by the person sitting behind him while flying from Denver, Colo., to Charlotte, N.C., following the Democratic National Convention. His conversation with Rep. John Spratt, D-S.C., was anonymously posted to YouTube and highlighted by RedState.com, a conservative blog. [You can watch it HERE.] Just to refresh memories, here is HIS apology:
“If this offended anybody, I personally apologize,” “It was a mistake, and it was a satirical statement made in jest. And one that I clearly don’t believe. One doesn’t anticipate that one’s private conversation will be surreptitiously taped by some right-wing nutcase but that’s the nature of what we’re dealing with.”
We MUST find the cure for this disease. Lives are depending on it!
I’m just saying…
Just a few videos of how some people feel about some things….
Now here’s something you just wouldn’t expect to hear! Well, okay, if you’re a Republican you would expect to hear it…. Here’s an interesting conversation recorded while on a plane from Denver to Charlotte between former National Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Don Fowler and Congressman John Spratt of South Carolina (see the story here)
Now don’t y’all hold that against him. Here’s his apology You see! He didn’t mean it ….. clearly! He had NO idea he was being [and I quote] “surreptitiously taped by some right-wing nutcase”.
This is how Michael Moore feels about God, Katrina, the RNC and John McCain’s choice of VP running mate. I know you’ve all just been on pins and needles waiting for this!!!
There’s just no accounting for some people’s scruples. Of course, I’ve been on the road for sixteen hours today, so maybe my sense of humor is just numb? No, no – I think it’s just not funny. Sad, yes. Funny, no.
