When it costs millions of dollars to run a national election the real story is where are these people getting this money? Who is giving it to them and what do they want in return? Nothing is for free, especially in politics. Whatever happened to the Woodwards and the Bernsteins of journalism? Why isn't anyone investigating the money sources and what the political motivations of these people? On the basis that everyone acts in their perceived self-interest and the fact that they have contributed a gross ammount of money to a candidate it should be possible to draw some conclusions about what is going on and what the effect will be on our future governement. This is the real story and what is of importance to Americans.

How can anybody possibly be on the fence ?!?! Either you are familiar with the candidates' policies or you are not. If you are not then you should not be voting. If you are then your choice should be clear for you. The minions will be loose next week !

Olbermann ends up dissecting the implications of McCain's appearance at a fundraiser for the the ultra-right wing Oregon Citizens Alliance in 1993. Earlier this week, RAW STORY reported that McCain shared the stage with Marilyn Shannon, who during her own speech praised a local woman who had shot a doctor because he performed abortions.

"Unlike Ayers who did not endorse terrorist activities during his meetings with Obama, this woman, Shannon, said of the shooter -- as McCain sat there -- quote 'she's a fine lady,'" Olbermann said. "A judge who later sentenced his fine lady for a campaign of yes, bombing women's clinics, said quote,'Though I am loathe to call anyone a terrorist, you are a terrorist.'"

As Jed Lewison notes Olbermann's segment does not mention that McCain voted against making abortion clinic bombings a federal crime three months after the OCA appearance.

I see you all have not lost your fight :

GOOD! Because we have a lot to do. You!(the American people) are going to have to take back control of your elected government at every level, and set your government back on the right path of service to you, and the greater good of the World.

Barack Obama and the democrats are your best hope of doing that now. Tell your family, friends, and everyone you know to support them as best they can. Because the Bush McCain vote fraud, vote cheating, vote buying, vote manipulation machine is already hard at work to cheat you again. And we all know what a disaster that has been the past 8 years of Bush McCain.

Barack Obama and the democrats will need all the power you can give them at every level of government (Federal, State, County, and local City elected governments). Obama and the democrats will have an enormous mess to fix for the American people, and the rest of the World. A mess caused by the corrupt Bush McCain administration.

You see, starting back in 2000, and before 911, it was mostly the Republican governors, Republican legislatures, and county elected Republican officials that conspired with the corrupt Bush McCain administration to raise college, and university tuitions by the fastest, and highest rate increases in American history. Some state tuitions went up by as much as a WHOPPING! 30% in one year.

The reason the Bush McCain administration did this was to force struggling working class kids into the military to pay for the sudden jump in tuition. Which was forced on them by the corrupt Bush McCain administration, and their corrupt Republican Governors, and republican controlled state legislatures.

See, Bush McCain had plans to get us into all these immoral, foolish, criminal, and unnecessary wars from the start. So they could use these wars to seize power, and later to get reelected. But, for their evil plan to work they needed more volunteer soldiers struggling to pay for an education whose blood they could spill to help them seize more power. Remember Bush McCain's "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!" theatrics.

The exploitation, and lost lives of these finest Americans is despicable, disgusting, immoral, corrupt and criminal. And it makes me SICK, and ANGRY!

You will have to vote for Obama, and the democrats in overwhelming numbers to overcome the Bush McCain vote fraud machine. Vote early if you can. Then help your fellow Americans cast their votes now, and on through election day. Vote for Obama, and the democrats like your life, and the lives of your loved ones depends on it. Because it does. You will not survive 4 more years of "Let Them Eat Cake" Bush McCain, and their republican allies.

Just look at the mess we have now.

You can fix this mess with your votes for Obama, and the democrats. And REMEMBER, no matter which of us may stumble or fall, the rest of you must continue to surge forward for Barack Obama, and the democrats, and for your-selves most of all. The children, and the World are counting on us.

It's in your hands now. And I know you will get it done.

God bless all of you.

Why should she? Why is it your business? It is illegal for an employer to demand medical records.

That's right, money talks and Bulls..t walks. Yes the presidency is for sale to the highest bidder. Those with the money can pay for the national propaganda to get their furher elected. It is as simple as that. People are as stupid at voting as they are at shopping. They do what the magic glowing box tells them to do.

The Lack of a Village Website allows the Village Officials to not be known and prevents easy access to Village Goverment. Please Contact Mr. Henry Tobin who is responsible for the Delay in getting a Village Website. This was one of his Priorities in the pre election things he wanted to get done. He is Interested in learning what would be helpful on Village Website once developed. How about a FAIR CIVILIAN POLICE COMPLAINT PROCESS to Identify Bad Apples within Police Dept. A process that allows Village Officials to see all Complaints without being squashed By Three Sgts or the Police Chief.

Businesses will not stay open with the proposed taxes, we will just shut our businesses down- period. Many business will go under rather than be unionized. Massive unemployment follows that. Fewer people to pay taxes will have good jobs. Fewer businesses to fuel the economic engine.
This is about destroying wealth.
They want to attach to your 401k.
When Barack pulls out of Irag, Iran will go at Isreal the last true democracy in the Mideast. Putin will get in the game and the Mideast will become cinders.
Barack will have a chat with them because he has no courage to put it on Putin. That is what Biden was talking about. This will happen because of his ripping the troops out in the first place.
Meanwhile back home the hurting will expand across the country. The government will spread what it doesn't mismanage or loot and you'll get some tiny check each month. Lowering the standard living for everyone in mass.
We will have a huge problem restarting the American business engine after this if at all. When he is thrown out of office.
Be careful what you say. Next is censorship of the airwaves.
Liberals will come for you. The only thing they didn't do to 'Joe the plumber' was arrest him and take him away. Every one who disagrees with the Obama they shut down or throw off the plane. We see how Obama and his 'troops' act BEFORE they are in and I fear we are nearing the end of this great democracy. They totally strong arm anyone who does not agree with Obama. His people are just short of being henchmen.

If you cannot choose between an intelligent intellectual who is trustworthy and knows what he is doing (Obama) and a 72 year old incompetent dinosaur (McCain) who chose a facist airhead (Palin) to succeed him should he keel over and croak, you are lost!

McCain is not capable of making the right decisions that would keep America safe. He and Palin (aka the DIABOLICA DUO) are dangerous for the country and the world!
