We're in a depression. More evidence from Wave 3 TV news here in Louisville.
I would add to that the fact that the number of people at the closest "Dare to Care" food bank (free, "fresh" food) has increased from about 30-40 a year ago to over 80 today and gradually clmbing.
McCain will simply make things worse even IF (and it's a big if) he doesn't start more wars we can't win.
Obama must win and carry a lot of Democratic congressional reps with him.
I'm posting a few links to Newsmax. I read it every day to determine what kind of stories (many of them actually are true) are being told on Newsmax.
An example of a typical headline might be something like, "The Coming Obama Created Stock Market Crash."
Here are some literal titles and their links. Realize these are the same folk who brought you "Iraq: the Non Movie."
"U.S. Intel: Iran Plans Nuclear Strike on U.S."LINK

Register to vote, and send Voltage to play at the Democratic National Convention. We have songs that are perfect for the event already written, and I am already the number one democrat at the DNC.Read More »
The Chicago Tribune has an IQ test for knowledge about John McCain. I didn't do that well; but I think ONE of the answers is wrong.
You can find it here and take it yourself:
Frank Rich on Obama's win. Even though I post a lot on other folks' blogs, I don't write that many from scratch. After all Frank Rich is a trained writer; and I'm a tired preacher.
Anyway, here is a link to Frank Rich's column in todays New York Times:
has been taken to a hospital.
For more informatiton
for your help in getting McCain some extra votes from those who are information challenged.
You'll see what I mean here:
It's time to get used to who the next POTUS will be: Barack Obama.
Read the news from the newspaper here:
The news some of you have been waiting for. The TRUTH about Puerto Rico.
My Mama taught me the same thing. What did their mothers teach those Hillary supporters who don't think she's getting a fair shake when she got more than she deserved out of her conniving the votes in Michigan and Florida after agreeing to discount them?
This is worth watching if you haven't:
The Kentucky Democratic Party issued a statement about the excitement we feel for this fall's general election in Kentucky.
The most exciting part is the replacement of Senator Mitch McConnell.

I just read a wonderful article by Elizabeth Edwards about the press and how it is failing the electorate. In it she cites the campaigns of several candidates on both sides of the aisle and how the press handled their coverage of those campaigns.
Before you go to the article (if you haven't already read it) think about whether you know more about Obama's bowling scores than his healthcare plan.
Talking Points Memo has something interesting that again shows the two-faced attitudes of the Clinton camp as a whole.
You'll find it here:
From MSNBC: "Shiller: Housing slump may exceed Depression."
I have been calling this a recession for over a year; and I do not believe depression is too strong a term at present. It may be fine for the very upper middle and upper class; but for most of us it, at the very least is DEPRESSING. We wanted a great president; and we got a Herbert Hoover wannabe.
McCain has already admittted he knows little about economics; and his responses so far are worse than feeble. We MUST have Democrats in the White House and congress.
You can read the article here:
Some "group" (probably Republicans, but who knows) have produced a commercial of the "Willie Horton" type that tries to make Obama look soft on crime and extends it to the so-called war on terror. It is an extremely good example of one of the major things wrong with the political process in the United States of America and that Obama has tried very hard to avoid using.
Today Hillary Clinton started a similar negative fear mongering ad; but this one is far beyond Hillary's because it is just outright deceit and doesn't even try to paint the true picture of the background involved.
I hope you'll check out this video; but remember it is only produced for shock value, to produce fear and smear by ALMOST telling the truth.
You WILL enjoy this.
I have been enjoying the antics of "Lisa Nova" for a couple of years now; and I thought this was very well done.
It DOES have a political message, though.
I'll bet this was already posted; but, just in case, it is an excellent source for seeing the many foreign trips Hillary Clinton took during her 8 years as First Lady, etc.
It is not a graph that has a positive or negative view of Hillary as its purpose as far as I can tell.
