I was in my office today, quietly catching up on business when I heard and felt that unmistakable throb of stereos gone wild.  Then I heard honking and yelling somewhere out on the main street.  Happy for a distraction, I walked out of my business, locked up, saw what was going on across the way and realized the McCain campaign office was tucked into the little mall behind the street zombies.  They were rallying at the traffic, bobbing signs that said “McCain – Palin!” and playing tinny (except for the base thrum) country and pop music loud enough to wake the dead. (Which is probably necessary for McCain’s sake.)

I muttered something like, “And you call yourselves Californians” but with a lot more swearing, then hied my ass back into the biz, printed out a sign, attached it to a long-handled dust bin, and grabbed my camera. Finally, I returned to the scene of the slime, set up my sign, and started shooting.

The zombies grinned and waved because they couldn’t see my sign.

  1. Gee, how courageous of you!

  2. That’s too hilarious!

  3. Here are some issues/plans I found on Obama’s website:

    Fight Global Poverty: Obama and Biden will embrace the Millennium Development Goal of cutting extreme poverty around the world in half by 2015, and they will double our foreign assistance to $50 billion to achieve that goal. They will help the world’s weakest states to build healthy and educated communities, reduce poverty, develop markets, and generate wealth.
    Provide $50 billion to Jumpstart the Economy and Prevent 1 Million Americans from Losing Their Jobs: This relief would include a $25 billion State Growth Fund to prevent state and local cuts in health, education, housing, and heating assistance or counterproductive increases in property taxes, tolls or fees. The Obama-Biden relief plan will also include $25 billion in a Jobs and Growth Fund to prevent cutbacks in road and bridge maintenance and fund school re­pair – all to save more than 1 million jobs in danger of being cut.

    The Obama-Biden Plan to Cover Uninsured Americans: Obama and Biden will make available a new national health plan to all Americans, including the self-employed and small businesses, to buy affordable health coverage that is similar to the plan available to members of Congress. The Obama-Biden plan will have the following features:

    – Guaranteed eligibility. No American will be turned away from any insurance plan because of illness or pre-existing conditions.

    – Comprehensive benefits. The benefit package will be similar to that offered through Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), the plan members of Congress have. The plan will cover all essential medical services, including preventive, maternity and mental health care.

    – Affordable premiums, co-pays and deductibles.

    – Subsidies. Individuals and families who do not qualify for Medicaid or SCHIP but still need financial assistance will receive an income-related federal subsidy to buy into the new public plan or purchase a private health care plan.

    – Simplified paperwork and reined in health costs.

    – Easy enrollment. The new public plan will be simple to enroll in and provide ready access to coverage.

    – Portability and choice. Participants in the new public plan and the National Health Insurance Exchange (see below) will be able to move from job to job without changing or jeopardizing their health care coverage.

    – Quality and efficiency. Participating insurance companies in the new public program will be required to report data to ensure that standards for quality, health information technology and administration are being met.

    How is all of this going to get paid for? All of this is great IF you are willing to assume government has money and resources of its own. It doesn’t. This is tax payer money we are talking about. People will say, “well, he promises to cut taxes for the middle class and only increase them for the rich.” The so called ‘rich’ provide the jobs in this country first of all. And second of all, taxes (from any segment of the population) will never cover the over $100 billion just mentioned in the proposals above (see the rest of the issues section of his website to see what other entitlements are promised).

    So where will it come from? The inflation tax: it will simply be created by the Fed or borrowed from other nations/central banks.
    Look into it: Inflation Tax Wiki and Texas Strait Talk
    This represents an all out assault on the dollar. When there is more of something, its value goes down. When the dollar tanks (and this will happen, soon), I don’t care who tries to create more of it, it will be worthless.

    If you read the above articles (and other on the subject), and have a shred of common sense, you will quickly realize that the promises made to the poor and the middle class (by way of demonizing the people who turn a profit from corporate activity) are an attempt to bewitch them into believing that they will not feel this hidden tax. But it is clear to anyone who looks into the subject that they are the one’s who suffer the most. Who do you think will be waiting in the bread/milk lines? The millionaires or the poor (the middle class will among those called poor)?

    I don’t know about the rest of you but I am seriously considering taking my savings and buying hard assets (gold and silver) and putting them in a safe deposit box in Zürich. Right after I get my shotgun.
