Hey what happened to free speech?
Itís a shame people canít express themselves without being penalized for their honest thoughts.


Perhaps you're not acquainted with the true goal of Political Correctness, to effectively SHUT DOWN dissent by siezing control of the language.

You see it everywhere, any time that non-PC terminology is used, the discussion effectively ends because the other side is being 'insensitive' and therefore has nothing to contribute to effective debate/discussion.

People are not entitled to their own opinion unless that opinion can be expressed with 'acceptable' terminology.

The only brainwashing that's being done here is by the Obama camp. All the criticism that led to his defeat was not from Clinton but compiled by the associated press. The associated press asked for the Canadian transcript which started the story about Obama saying one thing to Canada and another to Ohio. The Reznick issue was again brought out by the press. It was just bad timing for Obama and was not a Clinton smear campaign. She just used what the press was reporting to her advantage just like Obama does every time there is bad press on Clinton. The photograph of Obama in muslim attire was not backed by the Clintons. Most web articles come to the conclusion that it was put out by the Obama team since it worked in his favor and Clinton had to defend that these were childish antics, that the campaign should be on a higher level.

But I am pretty sure that the Monster quote was sanctioned by Obama as well, another underhanded deceptive plot. He plays the good cop saying he's above all that, and gets one of his cronies to take the fall. But couldn't he have come up with a better insult than "Monster". How old is this guy? At least "Ken Star" is of the 20 year old maturity level, "Monster" is about 10 year old maturity level. Even if Obama didn't sanction it which is possible, it just shows you the intelligence of his top advisors. But I think both candidates were tired after Tuesday.

Beware Obama is just a little more underhanded and deceitful than Clinton, and that's how he's tricks the public over and over again. A couple years ago before they were rivals McCain and many others called Obama "disingenuous" in his tactic in Senate. Why was he known as the insincere senator? Can't the public see that when he's talking he doesn't feel anything, he is just sitting back coldly gauging public reaction, just look at his eyes, it tells the whole story. As honest as Abe was, is as disingenuous Obama is. He'll say anything to please the crowd even though he doesn't believe it.

And this is the problem with George Bush another disingenuous political figure. "the economy is good" when everything is pointing to the fact that it's not. It's about time we have honest human president in office who recognizes the problems. Yes Hilary changes her demeanor constantly but that's honesty. She acts how she feels, angry, happy, bitchy,she cries, whatever, that's human, she even changes her mind when something she tried isn't working, don't we all. She's not a very good actress, but a president shouldn't need to be. Obama is like a robot that never shows any emotion. Everything he feels and is about is hidden. If there's no truth in government we can never face the problems at hand.

Behind the smile and all the false rhetoric most politicians are always planning on deceiving the American people.

Perhaps calling Hillary a monster is a bit off, but I like it when politicians express their true feelings.

We then get a clear understanding of their true character. No matter how rotten it is.

I'm guessing that the Republicans here simply don't read, and the Obama supporters haven't bothered to learn anything at all about Hillary's life, since 99.9 % of them can't even name one thing their own candidate has accomplished. But I can promise you that none of you have accomplished even the smallest part on your own behalf or on behalf of anyone else that Hillary has accomplished. She is a hero and a national treasure. We have a rare opportunity to elect this extraordinary, brilliant, and accomplished individual as the President of the United States.
McCain will just keep us on the same downward spiral, and Obama has no idea how to accomplish what he visualizes, and in any case his history of back-room dealings with foreign business lobbyists puts the lie to that vaunted idealism.

Hillary is our only REAL HOPE in '08! Vote Hillary!

Torch, you and Hillary are the very embodiment of the following principle:

If you can cast doubt on the skills and abilities of others, there is no end to the things you can fail at without being noticed.

Keep up the good work.
