Now we are seeing that faith once again. Cathy’s home was vandalized by two teenage girls to the tune of $30,000. The girls broke in and trashed the place. Instead of pressing charges, Cathy wants the girls to have to write “I will not vandalize other people’s property” 1,000 times. He also wants them to be banned from television, video games and to read one good book during that time. That is the punishment he wants for the girls because he feels it is better than having them given a criminal record for the rest of their lives. I like this man. I don’t know whether he is Baptist, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, or whatever. But the man is living out his faith in a real way, both professionally and privately. This is truly refreshing.

Then there is this from IBD. Apparently John McCain developed an ad against Obama showing that he was nothing more than a pop star and not worth voting for. Something a lot of us have been saying for months now, only because it is true. This has the left all up in arms, and now Obama is using the race card again.
As McCain’s commercial was being released, Obama was in Springfield, Mo., telling voters that Republicans will try to “make you scared of me — you know, ‘he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny name,’ you know, ‘he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.’ “
If this sounds familiar, it echoes remarks Obama made in Jacksonville, Fla., earlier this year. “We know what campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid,” Obama said at a fundraiser. “They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced, and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”
Obama is young and inexperienced. There will be no adoring crowds chanting his name at 3 a.m. in the White House. The real issue is not the color of Barack Obama’s skin, but the thickness of it. If you can’t stand the heat, put down the arugula and get out of the kitchen.
As for the political cartoon, I love it. It shows the idiocy of his energy plan for America. Instead of drilling for more oil, thereby increasing supply and sending prices down, he wants us to make sure our tires are properly inflated. That shows Obama’s arrogance. He is such an elitist that he thinks we don’t know this, and thinks that is all we have to do to solve the energy crisis.
I think another quote from the IBD article is in order here.
The Obama camp has gone bonkers at the suggestion that he’s an elitist in an empty Armani suit who can take time to shoot three-pointers but is too busy to visit vets in a German hospital.
Hit them with the truth and it drives them bonkers!
