"All the miseries and devils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppressions, slavery, and war proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible."
from "History of the United States" a textbook authored by Noah Webster
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle gave $10,772 of the $1.2 million they earned from 2000 through 2004 to charities, or less than 1 percent, according to tax returns for those years released today by his campaign.
The Obamas increased the amount they gave to charity when their income rose in 2005 and 2006 after the Illinois senator published a bestselling book. The $137,622 they gave over those two years amounted to more than 5 percent of their $2.6 million income.

The post November 2, 2010 House election results, a change that we needed.
“Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.” 1st Corinthians 3:13 An American revolution is in motion while the arrogant Obama administration denies and shamefully ignores all of the obvious signs. Obama regards all Americans as mere peasants “grubbin’ for taters on the King’s land”, his land, to which he intends to strip bare of any semblance of greatness rather than protect and nurture it to the benefit of all its citizens.
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance." – - Cicero - 55 BC Rome
We are back to square one.
The Federal Reserve announced last Wednesday that it would be buying 600 billion dollars of US Bonds (the USA debt), which it once said they would never do. And to doing that that they will be printing and adding more money in circulation, causing the value of the dollar to considerable to decrease in value which can lead to hyperinflation. And since we no longer are on the gold standard, severe financial trouble could follow. And it appears the Chinese no longer want to buy our bonds because we now are a financial risk.
Following World War I, the Wiemar Republic (Germany) was in the same boat as us. They were off the gold standard and printed more money in 1922 to help pay war debts. The German mark quickly devalued. By November 1, 1923, a pound of bread cost 3 billion marks, a pound of meat cost 36 million marks and a glass of beer cost 4 billion
The National Inflation Association yesterday (http://inflation.us/foodpriceprojections.html), projects that at the average U.S. grocery store it will soon cost $11.43 for one ear of corn, $23.05 for a 24 oz loaf of wheat bread, $62.21 for a 32 oz package of Domino Granulated Sugar, $24.31 for a 32 fl oz container of soy milk, $77.71 for a 11.30 oz container of Folgers Classic Roast Coffee, $45.71 for a 64 fl oz container of Minute Maid Orange Juice, and $15.50 for a Hershey's Milk Chocolate 1.55 oz candy bar. NIA also projects that by the end of this decade, a plain white men's cotton t-shirt at Wal-Mart will cost $55.57.
Will we end up like the Wiemar Republic?
Tom Foley said he will not concede the election until there is an official certified count. Already in Torrington a recount found 2,000 voted for him that were not counted earlier. He said in his news conference this morning, that Secretary of State Bysiewicz and other elected officials are doing a grave disservice to Connecticut voters.
And Bridgeport voter fraud is highly suspected. People outside the polls were handing out replica ballots and it was found that some of them were cast along with the real vote. Some honest voters in Bridgeport reported that they received more than one ballot 'stuck together' and complained to the poll workers. Plastic bags of ballots were left unattended and unsecured in the poll area instead of be deposited in the locked cage. Those bags were known to contain both the real ballots and the replica ballots.
Vernon Major Jason McCoy was asked by the State Republican committee to go to Bridgeport to watch the polls there after they got word of a few hundred ballots have been ordered with a return address of a vacant lot. He witnessed these irregularities along with Jim House of WFSB News who videoed them and ran a breaking news story on last night's newscast.
A Hartford voter reported that when his wife went to the polls, she was denied her right to vote because her name was already crossed of as if she voted! She eventually was able to vote, but not after putting up a fight. That same voter also stated he attended an AFL-CIO convention earlier this year and he reported that they were promoting the need to work Bridgeport this election to get the Democratic votes anyway they can. I wonder how many dead, out of people or illegals voted there?
And of course one will ask if they have yet counted the absentee votes?
Secretary of State Bysiewicz may have prematurely called Malloy winner of CT Governor race. AP just rescinded their call of the race winner as Malloy because they show Foley ahead by over 8,000 votes. and the absentee votes have not been counted!
The Fox News report quoting AP sources:
Democratic Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz said Wednesday that unofficial election results showed Malloy, the former mayor of Stamford, defeating Foley by 3,103 votes out of more than 1.1 million cast, above the threshold of 2,000 or fewer that would trigger an automatic recount. The total didn't include absentee ballots, which Bysiewicz believed wouldn't change the outcome. . .
. . . The Associated Press on Wednesday afternoon called the race for Malloy based on Bysiewicz's statements. However, the AP withdrew its call later Wednesday after its vote count showed Foley with a lead of 8,424 votes over Malloy, with all but 1.5 percent of the precincts counted. Bysiewicz had not released any vote results to support her statements earlier today.
It’s amazing that Obama lacked the foresight to see that supporting the construction of a $100 million mosque 2 blocks from Ground Zero, something that 70% of Americans oppose, won’t end well. But I guess when your closest advisors are Valerie Jarrett the slumlord, Robert Gibbs the clown, Rham Emmanuel the communist, and Michelle Obama the millionaire’s wife, equating “religious freedom” with an Islamic cultural center whose purpose is to promote Sharia law is the kind of progressive garbage you get.
- Keep America Safe This morning, Debra Burlingame, Keep America Safe Board Member and Co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America, released the following statement in response to President Obama’s remarks about the Ground Zero mosque:
