A Special Notice to My Readers

As I was growing up, there came a time when my mother felt that it was time to instruct me in the finer points of social interaction. She told me what many mothers have told their offspring, that there were two subjects which should be avoided in casual conversation; politics and religion. Naturally, both became passions which I found it very difficult to avoid.

The first political blog that I started was The Patriot Page. I struggled at first to generate traffic, part of the problem was that Googlebot was not crawling my page. So I decided the start Political 411 as well, to see which page would become the more successful. As it turns out, The Patriot Page now generates more than twice the traffic of this page.

I have decided therefore, to change the focus of this page, and dedicate the subject matter to my other passion. Over the next week Political 411 will undergo a makeover. While the subject matter will be faith based, political issues will be addressed in such cases where it should be of particular concern to Christians. I would invite those readers who are more interested in political issues to visit The Patriot Page. For those of you who may be interested in seeing how this page progresses along the new path that I have set for it, please be forewarned, you will find the subject matter very thought provoking. I have studied the Scriptures for many years and find myself frequently at odds with conventional theology. As always, feel free to engage me on any issue which you feel a need to. I will be looking forward to the engaging dialogue.

DNC Tries To Rally The Troops, But RNC Turns The Tables

You gotta love this!

WASHINGTON (CNN) — National Republicans turned the tables on their political counterparts Wednesday by redirecting angry telephone calls coming into their switchboard to the Democratic National Committee.

The DNC released a Web video early in the morning accusing the GOP of inciting mob activity at town hall meetings.

At the end of the video, the DNC instructs people to call the Republican National Committee to express outrage. Callers who dial the RNC's main number to voice their concern about the DNC's charges are told to press 1, which sends them to the DNC's main switchboard.

DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse described the RNC's redirection as a "neat trick," but said it just further proves the Democrats' point about the GOP.

"The RNC is inciting angry mobs to shout out legitimate discussion at public events across the country and now they want to ignore people who deplore their tactics," Woodhouse said.

"Republicans don't want to have a discussion about the future of health care reform – they want to shout out – and now completely ignore – anyone who disagrees with them."

RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho dismissed the DNC's charge and accused Democrats of "trying to divert attention from the widespread opposition to President Obama's government-run health care experiment.

"The fact is many Democrats are opposed to the president's plan, including many Democrats in Congress," she said. "We wanted to make sure that callers who believe only 'rabid extremists' are opposing the president's health care plan have the opportunity to express those concerns to the DNC."

Libs Go Nuts Over Malkin's New Book

Michelle Malkin's New book, Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies, has reached the #1 spot in non-fiction category of the NYT best seller list.

Malkin has been a thorn in the side of the libs since her Oberlin College days when she wrote an article critical of the Oberlin's affirmative action program. Her book, which directly exposes the myths of Comrade Obama's 'hope and change' agenda, has the libs ripping out their own hair by the roots.

Neal Bortz recently rummaged through the reviews of her book at Amazon.com looking for the negative comments. The following are the ones which he found;

  • Contributes to the roar of negativity and hate that is killing our political system.
  • I have an aversion to sideshow carnivals. You know, PT Barnum's commentary about never going broke underestimating the intelligence of the American consumer. All you need is a freak show and a hook. In this regard, the book achieves its mission.
  • This book plays right into that "hater" genre. Realizing that there are a lot of folks who are ideologically extreme, undereducated and who have grown unaccustomed to thinking for themselves [not to mention those who simply cannot accept a non-white in the White house], the author decided to throw raw meat to a pack of salivating hounds
  • Books like this are anti-intellectual carnival sideshow fodder designed to fleece an uncritical audience
  • Just another symptom/source of the extreme polarization of American politics; look elsewhere for truth.
  • I suppose that everyone handing out five star reviews are having to squeeze this reading in between going to "Birther" conspiracy meetings and making signs to carry when they go out to harass their congressmen during town hall meetings... how very trite... how scarily inappropriate in a time when the nation needs ALL citizens to work hard to try and save our country from the remains of Reagan/Bush1/Bush2 !
  • March yourselves right into the ovens, you retards - the rest of us are trying to bring this country into the current century [with health care for all and jobs for any who can work]
  • Just another cheap hit piece paid for by the same greedy & corrupt people (the Republicans & their rich bosses) who caused The Great Depression 2 that we are just really getting into now. Pass up this junk & back our president in trying to save what's left of our nation.
  • This book is filled with so many distortions and outrages lies it's hard to believe that anyone sane would put this trash in print. Rupert Murdoch's pet Malkin must be making a lot of money writing this stupidity. If you enjoy right wing mindless propaganda this book's for you.
  • The FAR right is crazy about Obama, and they will publish crap like this book because they know morons on the far right will buy it
Keep up the good work Michelle!

Hat tip to Neal's Nuze.

AARP Members Take Over Meeting

Anyone who has been paying attention is aware that the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) really does not represent it's members and does not care what they think. AARP has an agenda and it is a decidedly leftist one.

As you may have seen in the MSM, last Tuesday AARP conducted a Town Hall Meeting in Dallas, in which rank and file members began to voice their discontent with the organizations support of the Obama health care plan. The AARP representatives did not want to discuss the issue, nor listen to members concerns, and cancelled the meeting.

What you may not know is that the members actually continued the meeting after the retreat of the AARP reps, as you will see if you watch the full video below. Note the complete, and even snobbish, disregard of the AARP reps toward the concerns of the members.
