Home Again - This is a photo from the end of my driveway. A thunderstorm was brewing, and the evening breeze was cool. I'm home from Louisiana - for now. I hope I won'...

If you plan on heading out to the Shriners corn maze at Circus Park in Vienna Township,bring some bread crumbs. A family of five made it halfway through the 2.9-mile maze last weekend when they got turned around out at marker 10. With the map no apparent help and the youngest child starting to freak out, the family called out -- to 911. Genesee County Sheriff's deputies quickly tracked them down and led them to safety. Organizers said it was the first time in the maze's two years of operation that anyone has resorted to calling police to get out.EXCLUSIVE!
Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan... Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger. With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounding determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God. I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, Dec. 7, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.If Barack Obama had been president:
What's at stake is two very different futures for America built around two opposing value systems advocated by two coalitions of power.
Down one road is a bureaucratic, insider-dominated system of litigation, regulation, and taxation with government dominance, with slow growth, expensive and scarce energy, and the eventual replacement of the United States by China and India as the world's most advanced and prosperous nations.
Down the other road is a dynamic American economy producing its own energy, independent of dictators, using science and technology to create an exciting future, and continuing its role as the most prosperous and technologically advanced country in the world.
People of good conscience may be opposed to a war they consider unjust. They may also be opposed to abortion, but to pretend the two are of equal moral culpability in order to justify their support of one particular candidate is irresponsible, untrue, and unjust.
OLEMA (AP) ― Motorists entering the quaint, woodsy town of Olema near the sea in Marin County may notice a subtle change as they enter: it appears the burg's name has been changed to 'Obama.' Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama supporter and bed and breakfast owner Kelly Emery created a perfect mirror of the green sign people read as they enter the town's limits.'Wow. Obamaville. Messiahland. TheOne's Town. What would it be like to live there? We have an election in November and we just may find out. This story reminded me of something else...
Anthony FremontBarack Obama looks like any other little boy,liberal democrat but looks are deceiving. He is a monster, a mutant with godlike mental powers.(at least according to his followers) Early on, he isolated the small hamlet of Peaksville, Ohio.Obama, California. In fact, the handful of inhabitants do not even know if he destroyed the rest of the world or if it still exists with his butchering foreign policy of appeasement and surrender and lack of concise decision-making ability . AnthonyThe Barack has also eliminated electricity, automobiles, and television signals (sounds about right). He controls the weather (unlike Bush, who single-handedly caused Hurricane Katrina) and what supplies can be found in the grocery store. AnthonyThe Barack creates and destroys as he pleases, and controls when the residents can watch the TV and what they can watch on it. The adultsThe media tiptoe nervously around him, constantly telling him how everything he does is "good", since displeasing him can get them wished away "to the cornfield""Fox News", where they are presumably met by a less-than-happy ending...
It was clear why Barack Obama's campaign barred television crews from a Beverly Hills mansion at twilight Tuesday as the Democratic presidential nominee mingled with movie stars on a giant terrace overlooking Los Angeles."Let me tell you, my friends, there's no place I'd rather be than right here with the working men and women of Ohio," McCain told cheering supporters in Vienna, Ohio, with running mate Sarah Palin at his side.
The cocktail reception was part of Obama's biggest night of Hollywood fundraising so far, an evening capped with a live performance by Barbra Streisand at the Regent Beverly Wilshire.
She's now more interesting on college campuses than Obama. She is more of a change agent than Obama and the contrast between a mother of five raising all five children and the Obama defense of infanticide by abortion doctors in the legislature in Illinois is such an enormous gap, that I believe when every American understands that senator Obama in the state legislature blocked a bill to require abortion doctors to help babies if they were born alive - and blocked a bill after a nurse talked about holding a baby for 45 minutes while it was dying because the doctor wouldn't help it. I think the gap in these two views - he's got about 15% of the country and the other 85% is going to find it totally and utterly unacceptable."You've convinced me Newt," states Joe Biden. “Sarah Palin is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Let’s get that straight. She was most definitely a better pick than me."
Well, George Stephanopolous interviewed Barack Obama recently. Obama slipped up and said, “MY MUSLIM FAITH”…
It was pasted all over the net! Well, most of those videos have been yanked from YouTube!
Luckily, we had our TIVOs rolling and caught the “extended version”…
Check out what Obama REALLY said…
Asked on the program about when life begins, Biden said: "Look, I know when it begins for me. It's a personal and private issue. For me, as a Roman Catholic, I am prepared to accept the teachings in my church."
He added that while he believes life begins "at the moment of conception," it would inappropriate to impose that view on others in a pluralistic society.
The bishops said Biden was right to say human life begins at conception. But the church "does not teach this as matter of faith; it acknowledges it as a matter of objective fact," they said.
"Protection of innocent human life is not an imposition of personal religious conviction but a demand of justice," they added.
"You don't need to tell people in Flint and our country that the economy is in bad shape," said Obama.
"But you do need to tell John McCain."
Obama touched on Flint's high unemployment and housing crisis, all the while criticizing McCain's recent claims that the Republican ticket is for change. "Government can't be for change when you brag about supporting George Bush," said Obama.
Most of the audience members appeared to be Obama supporters, despite the fact the event was touted as a speech for undecided voters, as well as campaign volunteers and community leaders.
Many of the attendees were wearing union gear.
Sarah Palin, 44, has stolen the campaign's style spotlight, causing a run on Kawasaki 704 eyeglass frames and upswept hairstyles... (blah blah blah)... Her hair is a study in contrasts, carefree and "done" at the same time. The untidiness of her updo has a can-do spirit that says, "I have more important things to do than worry about my hair, so I just twirled it into this clip so I could get to the real business of governing and shooting caribou and having babies and taking them to hockey practice."
Perhaps they (Hair Club For Men) should have picked Joe Biden. He, after all, now has a special status as the first Vice Presidential pick of a major party to have a very obvious set of hair plugs. He is the only Veep candidate I know of to have gone from being bald (other than at infancy) to suddenly having a growing mane in front. There is no doubt he had hair transplants. The guy is wearing Barbie's hair.Hey!
