220 who want you to be a serf of the Government

8 11 2009

So the Pelosi-Monstrosity has passed the House. Here is a list of 220 members of the House who voted for that hideousness: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll887.xml#Y. Just remember them when their seats come up for reelection. They should be send back home. Give money to their Conservative opponents, volunteer, do anything so that they lose and we never again see them in Congress.
Next time they should try their luck somewhere else – maybe move to Cuba and run for a Government seat there.

BTW, I am still waiting for the remaining $1000 that Barack Hussein Obama promised me in tax cuts this year (not that I ever believed it).

To all the dopes who voted for Obama and now feel buyer’s remorse: Next time remember not to believe every word that comes out of a politician’s mouth.

 





A look at young and minority vote

6 11 2008

Here are the CNN exit poll results in the Age and Race category.

2008 exit poll -- vote by age an race (CNN)

2008 exit poll -- vote by age an race (CNN)

This shows some interesting things.

  • The young white vote for Obama is not that huge (54% to 44%). There is hope for these people. They have not tasted the Carter era, so they did not realize what they were voting for.
  • The “Vote by Age” table at CNN provides more detailed split of the young vote (18-24, and 25-29). Both these groups show 66% vote for Obama. Seemingly there was not much difference in the voting behavior of those two smaller age goups.
  • The black vote was the same for Obama irrespective of age – nothing interesting or unexpected here.
  • What is interesting is the Latino vote. It shows clearly that the younger the Latino voters were, the more “Hope” they put in Obama.
  • Just the Latino 18-29 voting group alone gave Obama an advantage of more than 2mln votes over McCain by voting 76% for Obama against 19% for McCain.
  • Compared to 2004 election 3% fewer white voters voted (74% in 2008 vs. 77% in 2004). The black vote grew by 2% and the Latino by 1%.

UPDATE: here is a link to Michelle Malkin’s post from July’08: How much to buy off the Latino vote?

So what is my take on these numbers.

  • I think Obama will definitely get an amnesty passed for illegal immigrants. With the estimated number of the illegal immigrants over 10mln (some estimates up to 20mln), I guess that would give him at least 3mln votes. When the amnesty happens will depend on what timing would be most useful for the reelections. If he does it too early, it may spoil the effect in the number of votes it would give him in 2012 — people would forget to be “thankful” if some other issues come up before amnesty and 2012 elections.  If he does it too late, that would anger some Latino voters who hoped for early amnesty.
    One problem with this theory is that most of the illegal immigrants are in CA and that state is already in the hands of Democrats. The second state, Texas probably has too few illegal immigrants to swing it to Democrat as McCain won TX over Obama by almost 1mln votes.
  • Everything in Obama’s (and his wife’s career) so far shows that he wants the state to indoctrinate kids in public schools and other programs. For example, Obama’s admitted connections with Ayers are precisely in the field of education and youth programs. Ayers hates any form of education other than public schools. We will see if Obama shares the same views.
    Obama and his friends will fight hard for the minds of the young generation of future voters.

Let me finish with a video that shows an example of Liberal indoctrination/bullying of young school kids. (It is from a documentary about US elections made by Finnish TV.)





A look at the exit polls

5 11 2008

Here are some interesting stats from the exist polls. Based on the actual number votes for each candidate it seems that they are more or less accurate, slightly favoring Obama. You  can correct them by subtracting just under 1% from Obama’s results and adding just under 1% to McCain results. (Basically, if you see 51% Obama and 49% McCain, then these can be considered even).

Who are the great Obama fans (groups voting 60% or more for Obama, I am not listing groups 2% or smaller). I have picked factors other than just current views and opinions:

  • African-Americans (95%)
  • Latinos (67%)
  • Under 30-year olds (66%)
  • Those earning less than $30k per year (60%), and less than $15k per year (73%)
  • Those with no high-school education (63%)
  • Democrats (89%)
  • Liberals (89%) and Moderates (60%)
  • First time voters (69%)
  • Jews (78%) and non-religious (75%)
  • Those who never go to church (67%)
  • Those with no stock investments (61%)
  • Single or non-married (65%)
  • Working women (60%)
  • Union members (61%)
  • Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual (70%)
  • Urban dwellers (63%)

And now the McCain fans (percentage threshold here is 53%, otherwise the list would be short):

  • White (55%), white men (57%), white over 30 (approx. 57%), white earning over $50k (56%), white with no college (58%)
  • 65 or older (53%)
  • Republicans  (90%)
  • Conservative (78%)
  • Those who attend church weekly or more often (55%)
  • White Protestants (65%), Protestants attending church weekly (67%), Evangelicals/Born Again (74%)
  • Married women without kids (53%), married men with kids (54%)
  • Gun owners (62%)
  • Those who served in the Military (54%)
  • Rural dwellers (53%)
  • Those living in the South (54%)

Now let’s look at some interesting individual numbers. The first one is “first time voters”.

First time voters.

First time voters.

It looks like among those who voted before, the race was close to a tie. But the first time voters gave Obama an advantage of over 5mln votes (120mln total times 11% times (69%-30%) ) out of the 7.5mln votes with which Obama won.

Another interesting number was those who earn $200k per year or more. There were twice as many such voters than in 2004 (6% compared to 3%, or about 7mln compared to 3mln). Surprisingly they voted for Obama 52% to 46% (they know that their taxes will be most probably raised). In 2004 this group voted 63% to 35% for Bush. This change does not appear to correlate to any change in the number of post-graduate voters (highly educated voters have higher income but also are more Liberal).

One explanation for this that I heard is that these are the Palin haters, i.e. they were so offended by the choice of “dumb” Palin, that they decided to vote for “intelligent” Obama. The other explanation that I heard is that these are economically savvy people who are tired with the economic mess brought upon us by Bush government, so that they are willing to give Obama a chance. These people may own businesses, but they do not mind higher taxes under Obama, because Obama will make economy run so good that their after tax revenues will be higher anyway.

I think both explanations are severely wanting. Maybe if we knew why in 2008 there were twice as many over $200k voters, that would help to explain. Who knows? Maybe some of these are California (Bay Area and L.A.) voters who normally would not be bothered to vote, but this year came out to vote against Prop 8.

The third interesting number is the total number of votes. So far, in 2008, 120,318,920 votes have been counted. In 2004 there were 121,068,715 votes total cast. So it looks like the turnout will basically be the same. Definitely not as it was predicted.

Forth number. The “Ideology” distribution is basically the same as in 2004. This year we had Liberal (22%), Moderate (44%), Conservative (34%). In 2004 we had Liberal (21%), Moderate (45%), Conservative (34%).

Fifth number: 24% of the people polled declared that they would be scared if Obama won.

Sixth number: 67% of the people polled favor offshore drilling (42% favor offshore drilling strongly).

Seventh number: This one is particularly surprising. 71% of the people polled think that their taxes will go up under Obama. 57% of those who voted for Obama think that their taxes will go up. This may mean that Obama voters do not trust Obama on tax promises (he promised tax cut to 95%). Or it may mean that Democrat voters are “partiotic” and they simply like taxes. A vote for Obama is a plea to be taxed more.

Eighth – this one is weird: 4% of the polled think that Obama is too conservative. What is weird is that close to half of those who thought so voted for McCain – OK, so you vote for McCain because you think that Obama is too conservative ???. Such weird results make me trust these polls less.

Ninth: Very, very few Obama voters think that terrorism is a very important issue.

UPDATE: Here are some interesting interactive election result maps, and interactive exit poll result maps.





Birth of Obama Nation

4 11 2008

So eventually with the help of Media, ACORN, and money from fraudulent donations Barack Hussein Obama managed to become our President, or should I call him Our Dear Leader.

obama-nation-born

Here are my predictions regarding Obama’s presidency (in no particular order):

  • He will be in office only for 4 years, like Jimmy Carter. He did not win by a landslide (although CA votes are still to be counted, so I might be wrong) and as soon as he does not live up to the great expectations that he and the Media created, his ratings will go down, maybe even below these of W.
  • He will turn out to be not the moderate centrist that a lot of people hope he is.
  • He will be tested, as Biden has promised us, and the outcome will not be pretty.
  • Israel is screwed.
  • He will mess up the economy. We can look forward to unemployment being significantly higher than it is now.
  • The disenchanted press will finally start to research Obama’s past and what we will learn will not be pretty.
  • His cabinet will be a joke.
  • Say hello to $4+ gas again. Or higher, if he insists on sending “price signals”.
  • He will not be able to keep his tax promises — will have to tax more.
  • Will significantly cut defense spending. (Obviously, China and Russia will not cut their defense spending.)
  • Will he pardon Rezko?
  • Pray to God that our Dear Leader does not bankrupt coal industry.

The good news is that my town, my county, and my state voted for McCain/Palin.

I will now have less time to blog here because I have to start working on my resume. My company has not been doing very well, and now with Our Dear Leader in power, we may not survive far into next year.

Let me finish with a pretty photo of our Our Dear Leader and his Mentor.

Prop 8 — Why Marriage matters

3 11 2008

Here is my favorite “Yes on Prop 8” add — I really don’t like the arrogance of Gavin Newsom. (I have lived in Bay Area for a while, so I have heard him or about him a bit.)

You might say: If someone wants to marry someone then just let him/her do it – it is a free country. Heck, if someone wants to marry a goat, he/she should be able to do so. Or, if you can afford 5 wives, why not.

Here is a link to a good, short article that argues that it is not so: Marriage Matters by Maggie Gallagher.

Top Five Reasons to Oppose Same-Sex Marriage:
1. Marriage is about affirming the ideal. And when it comes to children, science and common sense both say: Mothers and fathers both matter to children.

2. Same-Sex Marriage sends a terrible message to the next generation: alternative family forms are just as good as traditional families, children don’t need a mother and a father, and marriage is about adult desires for affirmation or benefits, not about the well-being of children.

3. It’s just wrong for the law to pretend that two men being intimate are the same as a husband and wife, especially when it comes to raising children.

4. Marriage belongs in the hands of the people. Four judges in Massachusetts [or California] have no business rewriting the moral rules our kids are going to live by.

5. Marriage isn’t a special interest, it’s a common good. Every American benefits from a healthy marriage culture. All Americans pay the price in increased taxes, social disorder, and human suffering when mothers and fathers fail to get and stay married.





The candidate of Change

3 11 2008

Is this the Change that Obama means? — Carefully triangulate public opinion and say anything to get himself elected?

How can people trust anything that he says, if nothing that he says seems to be final. He promised tax-cuts for 95%. Are you willing to take him at his word? What guarantee is there the that Obama keeps his word? His personal integrity? I am not sure he has any. He is a Chicago style politician. His life-long record? His friends and acquaintances are not exactly the nicest people. And large portions of his life are a carefully shrouded secret.

If after elections you feel buyer’s remorse, good luck with trying to return the purchased goods.





11/4/1979 — a taste of things to come?

3 11 2008

Obama, if elected, could become the next Jimmy Carter. November 4th, 1979 is a reminder of how “skillfully” Carter handled the situation in Iran and what it led to. The problem with Obama is that not only he is inexperienced, but that he believes that everyone’s grievances against the US are legitimate. He will not stand up for the US interests, but rather cede to the will of the UN.

Failed Operation Eagle Claw

Failed Operation Eagle Claw

I lived in the Eastern Europe during the Carter era. Commies liked Carter. I was at school then. I remember how, before the elections when Carter run against Reagan, our teachers told us that it would be a terrible thing if Reagan won. When Reagan eventually won, one commie teacher told our class that we would now have Word War III soon. The commies rooted for Carter. Just like commies everywhere root for Obama.
