Personally, I much prefer this location for its service and the fact that it takes part in Starbucks Promotions.

Oh - and at both locations- just because a drink is seasonal- they may be able to make it year round- just ask

Things that make you go HMMMM / New Nail Gun, made by DeWALT.
« on: March 17, 2010, 08:50:33 PM »
  • Thankyou, DeWalt!!! New Nail Gun, made by DeWALT.
    It can drive a 16-D nail through a 2 x 4 at 200 yards.
    This makes construction a breeze,
    you can sit in your lawn chair and build a fence.
    Just get your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back,
    relax with a cold drink and when she has the board in the right place,
    just fire away.   
    With the hundred round magazine you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading.
    After a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun the wife will not ask you to build or fix anything else, probably,ever again.

Health News / Swine Flu causes unusual Lung Damage
« on: November 13, 2009, 03:06:15 PM »
    Thursday, October 15,  2009   

   WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The new pandemic H1N1 flu may cause blood clots and other unusual damage in the lungs and doctors need to be on the lookout, U.S. researchers reported on Thursday.
Two studies published in the American Journal of Roentgenology show the need to check X-rays and CT scans for unusual features, and also point out swine flu can be tricky to diagnose in some of the sickest patients.
H1N1 flu is causing a pandemic, and while it is not particularly deadly, it is sickening many younger adults and older children who usually escape the worst effects of seasonal flu.
"It is therefore essential that clinicians be able to recognize possible cases of pandemic H1N1 influenza in high-risk groups so that they order the appropriate diagnostic tests, begin specific antiviral therapy, and prepare to provide intensive supportive measures as needed," Dr. Daniel Mollura of the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Maryland and colleagues wrote.
One middle-aged man who died was not diagnosed until after death, but unusual findings on his X-rays may be able to help doctors save other, similar patients.
Mollura's team found irregularities called ground-glass opacities in the patient's lungs using a CT scan. Although the patient was severely ill and had a fever, he tested negative for flu and doctors did not treat him for it.
The man died five days after he went into the hospital and the autopsy confirmed he had swine flu. The lung lesions seen on his CT scan matched lung damage done by the virus, Mollura and colleagues said.
In another study in the same journal, CT scans of patients with severe cases of swine flu showed many had pulmonary emboli, which block the arteries in the lungs, a team at the University of Michigan found.
Anticoagulant drugs can break up these clots and save lives.
Dr. Prachi Agarwal and colleagues examined 66 patients diagnosed with H1N1, 14 of them who were in the intensive care unit. All 66 got standard X-rays, which can show if a patient has pneumonia.
They performed enhanced X-rays known as computed tomography or CT scans on 15 of the patients, 10 of them who were in the ICU on ventilators to help them breathe. Five of the ICU patients had the blood clots in the lungs, Agarwal reported
"Our study suggests that patients who are severely ill with H1N1 are also at risk for developing pulmonary emboli, which should be carefully sought for on contrast-enhanced CT scans," Agarwal said in a statement.
"The majority of patients undergoing chest X-rays with H1N1 have normal radiographs (X-rays)," she added. Pulmonary emboli are also not normally seen in flu, she said.
"CT scans proved valuable in identifying those patients at risk of developing more serious complications as a possible result of the H1N1 virus, and for identifying a greater extent of disease than is appreciated on chest radiographs."

Tell us your favorite Joke / TWO DIFFERENT DOCTORS' OFFICES
« on: March 25, 2009, 03:14:41 PM »
    Have you had similar experiences????
 
TWO DIFFERENT DOCTORS' OFFICES
 
Boy, if this doesn't hit the nail on the head, I don't know what does!)
 
 
Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same
complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip
replacement.
 
The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is
x-rayed the same day and has a time booked for surgery the
following week.
 
The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an
appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an
x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his
surgery scheduled for a month from then.
 
Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

                                Confirmed - Obama Member Of Socialist New Party 1996          October 10, 2008 · 4 Comments                       

 “Obama.  American Socialists for Change.”
 Image courtesy of http://freeulysses.com/.
For all the creative enthusiasts out there who came up with such clever ideas on the Obama Socialist theme, now there is evidence that Senator Barack Obama was a member of the leftist Socialist New Party in 1996.  Web Archives Confirm Barack Obama Was Member Of Socialist ‘New Party’ In 1996 at Politically Drunk tells us more.  The ‘New Party’ was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA) to push forth the socialist principles of the DSA by focusing on winnable elections at a local level and spreading the Socialist movement upwards. The admittedly Socialist Organization experienced a moderate rise in numbers between 1995 and 1999. By 1999, however, the Socialist ‘New Party’ was essentially defunct after losing a supreme court challenge that ruled the organizations “fusion” reform platform as unconstitutional.
After allegations surfaced in early summer over the ‘New Party’s’ endorsement of Obama, the Obama campaign along with the remnants of the New Party and Democratic Socialists of America claimed that Obama was never a member of either organization. The DSA and ‘New Party’ then systematically attempted to cover up any ties between Obama and the Socialist Organizations. However, it now appears that Barack Obama was indeed a certified and acknowledged member of the DSA’s New Party. See here Obama’s Socialist membership.  The one he has denied.  The one his campaign has scrubbed from many sites in attempts to deflect the truth.
See Obama congratulated here in 1996. Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.

 “Sign the contract.”
 Image courtesy of http://www.balkaninvestments.co.uk/WalkthroughEng.asp.
But go back to 1995 here and see that OBAMA HAD TO SIGN A CONTRACT WITH THE SOCIALIST GROUP. The NP is being very active in organization building and politics… In order to build an organizational and financial base the NP is sponsoring house parties… Nationwide it has resulted in 1000 people committed to monthly contributions. The NP’s political strategy is to support progressive candidates in elections only if they have a concrete chance to “win”. This has resulted in a winning ratio of 77 of 110 elections. Candidates must be approved via a NP political committee. Once approved, candidates must sign a contract with the NP. The contract mandates that they must have a visible and active relationship with the NP.
The political entourage included Alderman Michael Chandler, William Delgado, chief of staff for State Rep Miguel del Valle, and spokespersons for State Sen. Alice Palmer, Sonya Sanchez, chief of staff for State Sen. Jesse Garcia, who is running for State Rep in Garcia’s District; and Barack Obama, chief of staff for State Sen. Alice Palmer. Obama is running for Palmer’s vacant seat. And from Stanley Kurtz at National Review’s Inside Obama’s Acorn. …that Obama’s long service with Acorn led many members to serve as the volunteer shock troops of Obama’s early political campaigns — his initial 1996 State Senate campaign, and his failed bid for Congress in 2000… With Obama having personally helped train a new cadre of Chicago Acorn leaders, by the time of Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate campaign, Obama and Acorn were “old friends,” says Foulkes.
 

 So along with the reservoir of political support that came to Obama through his close ties with Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, and other Chicago black churches, Chicago Acorn appears to have played a major role in Obama’s political advance… State Senate [work] indicates strong concern with Acorn’s signature issues, as well as meetings with Acorn and the introduction by Obama of Acorn-friendly legislation on the living wage and banking practices. You begin to wonder whether, in his Springfield days, Obama might have best been characterized as “the Senator from Acorn.” Important as these questions of funding and partisanship are, the larger point is that Obama’s ties to Acorn — arguably the most politically radical large-scale activist group in the country — are wide, deep, and longstanding. If Acorn is adept at creating a non-partisan, inside-game veneer for what is in fact an intensely radical, leftist, and politically partisan reality, so is Obama himself. This is hardly a coincidence: Obama helped train Acorn’s leaders in how to play this game. For the most part, Obama seems to have favored the political-insider strategy, yet it’s clear that he knew how to play the in-your-face “direct action” game as well. And surely during his many years of close association with Acorn, Obama had to know what the group was all about. Right Wing Nut House sums it up well.  A challenge to the “thinking” American voter. 
Is it relevant to the campaign? Let’s ask the American people if they think it is “relevant” that a candidate for president made a political alliance with Marxists? Let’s ask the voter if they think it “relevant” that a future president carried on a close relationship for many years with an organization with a horrible reputation for vote fraud as well as promoting an agenda so at odds with what America is all about that the candidate feels it necessary to hide his activities on behalf of the group. I daresay the voters would have a much different answer about “relevancy” as those in the press who turn up their nose at these revelations.

                                Draft A Civilian Force By Obama Whether You Like It Or Not          November 3, 2008 ·                       
Big Brother gonna draft you!  Didn’t hear it then?  Hear it is now.
Obama Civilian Security
July 17, 2008
Reviewed before in a previous post, Get Ready For Obama To Draft You!
Senator Barack Obama’s plans for the military draft were discussed loud and clear at the ServiceNation Presidential Forum at Columbia University in New York on September 11, 2008.
 But it’s also important that a president speaks to military service as an obligation not just of some, but of many. You know, I traveled, obviously, a lot over the last 19 months. And if you go to small towns, throughout the Midwest or the Southwest or the South, every town has tons of young people who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s not always the case in other parts of the country, in more urban centers. And I think it’s important for the president to say, this is an important obligation. If we are going into war, then all of us go, not just some. OBAMA WANTS THE MILITARY DRAFT!  An all volunteer armed forces is not good enough anymore.
And guys, you are not alone.  OBAMA WANTS THE MILITARY DRAFT FOR FEMALES TOO!
Obama believes women should register for draft. Also would consider opening combat positions to females. [Obama] he does believe that America’s young women should be eligible for the military draft and possibly combat duty. Now despite the interpretation at the World Daily taken from a NY Times transcript of the Fourth Democratic Debate July 24, 2007, that Obama at that time was not interested in the draft, we see Obama’s stance now, on September 11, 2008 as above, which is pretty clear: “If we are going into war, then all of us go, not just some.”

National Political Opinion / Obama would bankrupt Coal Industry?
« on: November 03, 2008, 07:21:59 PM »
                                Obama Will Let Coal Powered Plants Go Bankrupt          November 3, 2008 · 1 Comment                       
In classic Barack Obama fashion, his words long thought banished to archives, have surfaced to tar his image.  With coal.  And also in typical Obama form, he claims he is being taken out of context.  Hardly.
Live in a coal mining state?  Have a coal fired plant?  Get ready for extinction, if Obama has his way!  No such thing as spread the wealth for you!
Hear it for yourself!
SHOCK Audio Unearthed OBAMA TELLS SAN FRANCISCO HE WILL BANKRUPT THE COAL INDUSTRY    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hdi4onAQBWQ
     
Naked Emperor News.  November 2, 2008.
Governor Sarah Palin roused the crowds in Marietta, Ohio and attacked Obama’s planto let the coal industry go by the wayside.
“If somebody wants to build a coal power plant they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” Barack Obama said to the San Francisco Chronicle in January.
The Obama campaign says the quote is being taken out of context and that Obama is actually from a coal state and is a strong supporter of the industry.
 
Yeah right.  Bottom line is that a supporter would never set the stage for that industry to go bankrupt.  Ever.
Listen to the entire interviewhere from the San Francisco Chronicle.  It actually has been available since January 2008.  No one has bothered pulling it out until now though. Listen to the Robocall here.
And he said it with such an arrogant tone, as if he dared to be challenged.

National Political Opinion / Obama and the Military
« on: October 30, 2008, 10:11:12 PM »
http://www.militarynewsnetwork.com/obama-military.htm
Obama and the Military                                             
[/s]
     Barack Obama's left-wing naivety is a serious threat to the national security of the United States. If elected, Obama's national defense/military policies would have              long-term, disastrous effects on America's ability to defend herself in a world of               serious emerging threats. If you weren't sure about who to vote for in the upcoming       presidential election, then read on. You'll be   sure after reading the following if you care about the security of your nation.
     Though John  McCain isn't the perfect candidate, and Obama's intellect would            otherwise be welcome in the White House, MilitaryNewsNetwork.com                              endorses John McCain for the next president of  the United States. This endorsement is based alone on the paramount issue of national  security. Without national security, America has nothing else.
                                                                    
     The world is changing and evolving, and  becoming more dangerous on many spectrums.  China is emerging as a superpower, and India a near superpower based on population and technology alone. Technology is empowering  otherwise backwards and primitive states with  the abilities to, among other things, launch cyber attacks and bring down modern jets with one-man ground-to-air missiles. Oil is infusing new cash into the nuclear Russian  military (the new president vows to fund new nuclear missiles), and enabling emerging countries, including South American countries such as   Venezuela, to develop semi-formidable militaries complete with sophisticated weapons   from Russia, China, and elsewhere. And in a  world of increasing populations and           diminishing resources, competition for natural  resources will increasingly and inevitably  lead to conflicts. Then, of course, there are the current conflicts, including the                  unresolved wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Palestinian/Israeli conflict to include the                                    greater standoff between Israel and Arab nations, the China-Taiwan standoff (which MNN believes China will press the issue once achieving regional military superiority),  North Korea, Iran, Chechnya, militant Islam's attempted takeover of Africa, and many other conflicts around the world. Many Americans  aren't aware of how dangerous this world is, having enjoyed peace and prosperity on the continent for many years. But the world is shrinking, due to technology and increasing populations, and America's military must be ready now, more than ever, to stand ready against these many threats.

     Yet, it seems, Obama sees the world in more innocent terms, with dangerous nations not as birds of prey, but aggravated birds - who with the proper love and understanding - could become doves. Take Obama's comments on Iran asan example:
                                   
            "Senator Barack Obama says he would "engage in aggressive personal diplomacy" with Iran if  elected president and would offer economic inducements and a possible promise not to seek "regime change" if Iran stopped meddling in Iraq and cooperated on terrorism and nuclear issues." (Obama Envisions New Iran Approach, New York Times, Nov. 2, 2007, Michael R. Gordan and Jeff Zeleny.)

     But, as it stands now, there is nothing in  this world - not in a thousand or two thousand years - that will resolve the Arab and Iranian hatred against Israel. There is nothing in this world that will stop China's desire for  Taiwan. And there is nothing in this world  that will stop militant Islam's war against everything that is not militant Islam.
     And yet, a President Obama would seek to undercut America's strategic military         advantages, chief among these being America's nuclear strike capabilities. In a                video Obama made for a pacifist organization last year, Obama  made very candid and very scary remarks about cuts he would make to American defense capabilities.
                                   
      Obama states:  "I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending. I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space. I will slow our development of  Future Combat Systems, and I will institute  an independent defense priorities board to insure that the quadrennial defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending. Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal I will not develop new nuclear weapons, I will seek a  global ban on the development of fissile material and I will negotiate with Russia to  take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals."

      In this world where everyone has tanks and troops, America's ultimate tactical advantage is nuclear superiority. Without nuclear superiority, America's military capabilities are effectively reduced to that of many countries, seeing how Iraq has shown the world that Shock and Awe American Military Might can  be stymied by small bands of local individuals who employ snipers, IEDs and primitive rocket launchers.   In this new century, America, more  than ever, needs the ultimate trump card.                                    America does not know what lies ahead in this century, or what evil plots will be hatched against her. But when threats come, America needs to be prepared. An Obama presidency would severely reduce America's military superiority and, like past, pacifist  presidencies have shown (Carter, Clinton), further embolden America's                enemies.
     These dangerous remarks by Obama about national security also call into question other concerns about Obama. There are many unanswered  questions about Obama - is he truly patriotic (not placing his hand over his heart during the National Anthem), does he harbor ill feelings towards America being a black man (Rev. Wright), does he sympathize with Islam (schooling in Indonesia, Muslim father).
                                   
     Here's what we do know. He's married to a woman who recently stated "for the first time  in my adult life, I am proud of my country..." During their entire marriage, Obama's wife has  not been proud of her country, and that attitude must certainly have existed to some degree in the Obama household. Her negative comments towards               America echo Obama's former pastor's (Rev. Wright) many vitriolic remarks against          America. (In congregations such as Rev. Wright's, you'll hear such shocking remarks       as "America got what it deserved on 9/11.") Obama's world also consisted of his job       as a civil rights attorney. Now, civil rights  is a noble cause, but today's civil rights           movement, which often paints the poor as victims of America, is infected with                   anti-American, anti-establishment rhetoric. Obama states he was against the Iraq War from the start, but is he a forward-thinking tactician, or was he against the war because he didn't want to see America "subjugate" an Islamic country, or didn't want to see a     disproportionate share of poor minorities fighting America's "colonial" wars,                or...?  These are tough, unanswered questions.

     Overall, here at MNN we see Obama as a smart,  professional, family man. Some of the above questions may be unfair to Obama and his nice family. Though some of the above questions remain when they shouldn't, the questions about Obama and national security don't. Obama wants to make (perhaps deep) cuts to the U.S. Military at a time we will soon find we can ill afford. Without national security, America will ultimately have nothing else. National security should always be the paramount, overriding concern of the U.S. Government, and Obama would diminish it, plain and simple.                                    Ultimately, a vote for Obama would be a vote for America's many, undeserved enemies.

ELECTION 2008
      Obama's birth certificate sealed by Hawaii governor
    Says Democratic senator must make request to obtain original document
Posted: October 26, 2008
9:54 pm Eastern
By Jerome R. Corsi
© 2008 WorldNetDaily

 Gov. Linda Lingle, R-Hawaii

[/t][/t][/t]
HONOLULU, Hawaii – Although the legitimacy of Sen. Barack Obama's birth certificate has become a focus of intense speculation – and even several lawsuits – WND has learned that Hawaii's Gov. Linda Lingle has placed the candidate's birth certificate under seal and instructed the state's Department of Health to make sure no one in the press obtains access to the original document under any circumstances.
The [governor's office officially declined a request made in writing by WND in Hawaii to obtain a copy of the hospital-generated original birth certificate of Barack Obama.
"It does not appear that Dr. Corsi is within any of these categories of persons with a direct and tangible interest in the birth certificate he seeks," wrote Roz Makuala, manager of constituent services in the governor's office, in an e-mailed response to a WND request seeking the information.
Those listed as entitled to obtain a copy of an original birth certificate include the person born, or "registrant" according to the legal description from the governor's office, the spouse or parent of the registrant, a descendant of the registrant, a person having a common ancestor with the registrant, a legal guardian of the registrant, or a person or agency acting on behalf of the registrant.
(Story continues below)

WND was told the official reason for denial of access to Obama's birth certificate would be authority granted pursuant to Section 338-18 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, a provision the anonymous source claimed was designed to prevent identity theft.

Still, the source told WND confidentially the motivation for withholding the original birth certificate was political, although the source refused to disclose whether there was any information on the original birth certificate that would prove politically embarrassing to Obama.

The source also refused to answer WND's question whether the original document on file with the Department of Health was a hospital-generated birth certificate or a registration of birth that may have been filed subsequent to the birth.

The anonymous source made clear the Hawaii Department of Health would immediately release Obama's original birth certificate, provided Obama requested the document be released, but the Department of Heath has received no such request from the senator or from anyone acting officially on his behalf.

WND also found on microfilm in the Honolulu downtown public library a notice published under the "Births, Marriages, Deaths" section of the Honolulu Sunday Advertiser for August 13, 1961, on page B-6, noting: "Mr. and Mrs. Barack II Obama. 6085 Kalanianaole-Hwy, son, Aug. 4."

In searching through the birth notices of the Honolulu Advertiser for 1961, WND found many birth notices were published between one and two weeks after the date of birth listed.

The notice in the Honolulu Advertiser does not list the hospital where the Obama son was born or the doctor who delivered the baby.

In a startling development, Obama's Kenyan grandmother has reportedly alleged she witnessed Obama's birth at the Coast Provincial Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya.

Friday, U.S. Federal judge Richard Barclay Surrick, a Clinton appointee, dismissed a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania attorney Phillip J. Berg who alleged Obama was not a U.S. "natural born" citizen and therefore ineligible for the presidency under the specifications of the U.S. Constitution, under Article II, Section 1.

Berg told WND last week he does not have a copy of a Kenyan birth certificate for Obama that he alleges exists.

In Kenya, WND was told by government authorities that all documents concerning Obama were under seal until after the U.S.presidential election on November 4.

The Obama campaign website entitled "Fight the Smears" posts a state of Hawaii "Certificate of Live Birth" which is obviously not the original birth certificate generated by the hospital where Obama reportedly was born.

"Fight the Smears" declares, "The truth is, Barack Obama was born in the state of Hawaii in 1961, a native citizen of the United States of America."

Although the Obama campaign could immediately put an end to all the challenges by simply producing the candidate's original birth certificate, it has not done so. And the "Fight the Smears" website offers no explanation as to why Obama has refused to request, and make public, an original hospital-generated birth certificate which the Hawaii Department of Health may possess.

Barack Obama: All Talk on Equal Pay 
 
    "Barack Obama claims he's for equal pay for women, but women working in his Senate office earn an average of $9,000 less than men, while women in John McCain's Senate office earn an average of nearly $2,000 more than men. American women understand that real leadership is about what you do, not just what you say." -- McCain-Palin spokeswoman Crystal Benton

  According To Senate Records, Women Working In Obama's Senate Office Paid An Average Of $9,000 Less Than Men, As "Obama Pays Women Just 83 Cents For Every Dollar His Men Make." "Obama's commitment to federally mandated pay equity stretches from the Rockies to Wall Street and beyond. And yet it seems to have eluded his Senate office.

        Obama: America's first Gay President?       by Kevin McCullough
                   If William Jefferson Clinton was America's first "black" president, could it be that Barack Obama is positioning himself to be the nation's first "gay" president?
        His supporters have argued vehemently for months that Barack Obama does not represent the interest of the radical homosexual activists. Chicago "South-side" radio talk show hosts declare with confidence that Senator Obama has said he would oppose the redefining of marriage to include unions that only the imagination could cook up. Obama has blindsided black clergy across America with the con-game that they should not worry about his views on homosexuality.
         He has uttered a "Praise the Lord" at the side of Gospel uber-star Rev. Donnie McClurkin, who himself was sexually abused by a homosexual and thusly forced to struggle with the issue in his own life at times. Obama has gone from church rally to church rally making vague references to God's power, and God's purposes - while never defining one ounce of what any of it means.
        Yet as someone who has followed his career since long before he was a national stage player, I have warned that his aggressive support for the radical homosexual activist agenda in America is a part of the overall picture of who he is.
         In this way he may be more "gay" than Clinton was "black" - and by a wide margin at that.
         For all the shell game that Obama was able to juggle in the run for President to date on the issue of his real, underlying views on the radical homosexual agenda - this week he removed all doubts.
        In an alarmingly pointed written statement Obama signed his named to the personal promise of greater advance against the institution of marriage of any candidate to ever run for the highest office.
         Pointedly so he gave his full pledge to overturn, or repeal, the federal Defense of Marriage Act. 
        "I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples — whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union, or a civil marriage. Unlike Senator Clinton, I support the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) – a position I have held since before arriving in the U.S. Senate. While some say we should repeal only part of the law, I believe we should get rid of that statute altogether."
        This act was signed by the last liberal President in office William Jefferson Clinton. In pledging to do so Barack Obama has now staked out turf that threatens the viability of the next generation of children that could subject them to an operative norm that would contribute to the de-constructing of families as to however one could imagine in one state - and then forcing recognition of that sexual union by its neighboring state regardless of what the citizens of that state say.
        In pledging to overturn DOMA Obama seeks to remove state's rights, violate the principles of federalism, violate a major tenant of all traditional religious systems observed in America, and subject children to a quite non-healthy home-life. Studies of which have confirmed would have a detrimental effect on said children's scholastic, emotional, intellectual and physical health.
         Yet the overturning of DOMA is merely the beginning of Obama's radical homosexual activist agenda.
         For months supporters of Obama have written to me asking for evidence that he would do anything to advance or at the very least not stand in the way of the redefining of marriage. See at least Ted Kennedy and John McCain both made the argument in not supporting the Constitutional Amendment to Protect Marriage that it was unnecessary on the grounds that DOMA would prevent the cancerous spread of Massachusetts' Judicial Activism from roaming state to state. But for Obama this is merely too little activism, and it proceeds far too slowly for his own desire.
        Thus in his written statement this week he argues publicly that states should be allowed to redefine the marriage laws in their state regardless of what research norms, the will of the people, or the common sense of healthy tradition have to say about it.
        In doing so Obama displays a reckless commitment to play games with the future sexual formation of families and puts himself so firmly planted in the camp of anti-biblical views of truth, sex, and family that we have never seen its comparison in all years previous.
        Make no mistake, committed Obama supporters share his uber-libertine leanings to homosexual behavior, and want to encourage more relaxation of traditional moral sexual barriers in society. And with academics like Dr. Judith Levine arguing in her book, and endorsed by Clinton Surgeon General Joyclin Elders, arguing that sex between adults and children is not harmful to the child - one can easily imagine what such relaxation of rules would lead to.
        I was the first pundit in America to predict that Barack Obama would be president in 2009. A prediction, I admitted at the time, pained me greatly. Nothing that has happened in the nomination process of either party has caused my five underlying conditions for his victory to be erased. With John McCain as the GOP nominee it appears my prediction is perfectly on track.
        Yet I will not allow my prediction to come true without speaking the transparent truth that Obama is not a man of traditional values, nor is he a friend to families.
         He may aspire to be many things.
        Hey may also aspire to be labeled America's first gay president. He would without question be more deserving than "Clinton as 'black'" under even the kindest of comparisons.
