    I recieved the following in an e-mail. Not sure who it originated from and also not sure if the figures are accurate.
    _______________________________________________________________

    OBITUARY
              Born 1776, Died 2008             
                               

       Professor Joseph Olson of   Hamline University School of Law,   St. Paul ,   Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning last November's Presidential election:

    Number of States won by: Obama: 19    McCain: 29
    Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000    McCain: 2,427,000
    Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million   McCain: 143 million
    Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2    McCain: 2.1

      Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory McCain won was
    mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

       Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements
    and living off various forms of government welfare..."

       Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy"
    phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the
    nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

       If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal’s
    and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

      According to this theory, cows, prairie dogs and rattlesnakes should count equally in elections with human American citizens.

      Maybe the retired people and disable people who u say are on welfare should join Loqueetha and her twelve children. The whole 40 percent! Should all come visit yall out there in McCain Country. Maybe speed up your prediction or force you to learn something about people before writing or quoting or believing such crap.

        LOL. Who said I believed it? Who said I backed McCain?

        I recall hearing a few years ago about someone claiming their dogs on their taxes. If it is true or not, I do not know, but I do know that a  lot of what we hear thought untrue, is possible.

          I'm sorry, what do you think about that little visit? Or should you concentrate more on the real people that are draining this country of its wealth.

            Who are the ones really draining this country? It is my opinion that nearly all, if not all, politicians are the ones draining it.

            There is an old joke that I heard a long time ago. How do you know when a politician is lying?

            His lips are moving.

      SirDent, I'm going to start praying for Armageddon.  Only God can save us from this horrible anti-American, communist take over of our beloved country.

      You should pray for Armageddon too.

    I think the professor forgot some smallish stats...

    Electoral college Obama:365  vs McCain: 173 
    Popular vote 69,456,897[1] vs.  59,934,814[1]
    Percentage 52.9%[1] vs.  45.7%[1]

    Nobody "won" anything.

    Sadly choosing between McCain and Obama was like choosing between Oral and Genital Herpes.

        Yeah, but the people that voted and won the election obviously picked genital herpes.

            No that was definitely oral herpes.

            I'll tell you what roused people (not aroused.  well, maybe some people...but what "roused" people) was a spirit of vengeance from the Left.  Reverend (and I use that term loosely) Jeremiah Wright shouted that America's "chickens have come home to roost"
            and all the vengeful people with unnecessary nasty chips on their shoulders decided to run with that to get their agendas going.  It wasn't just one group;  it was several.   And so we are where we are now, the blind leading the blind.

                I'm always right wing.
                And you are sometimes so perverse.
                Sounds like a personal problem to me.
                I'm beginning to wonder why I even bother conversing with you.

                    Ummm...no...that's not it.  I guess it's 'cause I talk to 'most everyone, whether they're perverse or not, in the hopes of triggering that thing called a conscience in them, that hides underneath their blatant bravado  tongue
                    Now get your head outta that dirty magazine and think for a minute-------why would America deliberately elect someone who said he wanted to change America at its very foundation?   I'd say he rallied the forces within American society that leaned anti-American, wouldn't you?   Ergo the numbers add up (barring actual fraud, which you don't consider actual).

      Doesn't matter if it's a hoax, a lie, a huge untruth. The Rabid Right Brigade will use it anyway.
      Truth in advertising is NOT an ideal they adhere to. Just the opposite in fact. WAY opposite!@

      They make a joke out of America.....and themselves.

      You wanna play low down and dirty? Anything goes? PATHETIC.

    Where was Brenda during the Bush administration I wonder? 

    I suppose she was standing proudly by "real Americans" like Bush and Cheney.....

    I am guessing Brenda also voted for McCain/Palin......which, had they been elected, would have ushered in an even darker period than we are now currently in......

    "Anti-American".....the buzzword for those who love to stereotype and deride others while not knowing what "America" means themselves...

    Real Americans understand the diversity of worldviews, and respect them....even if they are dissenting....

    Anyone who tries to categorize "America" into a narrow value set or identity doesn't know what they are talking about.....i.e. B.D.

    Way to go!

    "With enactment of the FY2009 Supplemental (H.R. 2346/P.L. 111-32) on June 24, 2009,
    Congress has approved a total of about $944 billion for military operations, base security,
    reconstruction, foreign aid, embassy costs, and veterans’ health care for the three operations
    initiated since the 9/11 attacks: Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) Afghanistan and other
    counter terror operations; Operation Noble Eagle (ONE), providing enhanced security at military
    bases; and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Congress is currently considering the FY2010 War
    request that was submitted to Congress along with DOD’s baseline request."

    -from the Congressional Research Service publication (Sept 28, 2009) entitled "The Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Other Global War on Terror Operations Since 9/11" written by Amy Belasco...

    This exerpt is from the opening paragraph...

    We have a trillion dollar deficit...and to mirror it we have a trillion dollar set of wars....of which at least one was illegal, fraudulent, and has not served, nor will serve, anything of value for Joe and Jolene American...

    These wars, however, keep vast military employed...or else our current jobless rates would be much much worse....

    If the United States has died, it passed during the eight years of Bush and Cheney.....while the incomes of ourselves, our children and grandchildren go to pay for Haliburton shareholders...like their former ceo.....what was his name??

    We let the coup of war hawks tear the tax dollar reigns.........and what have we wrought...locally and globally?

    But America has not died yet.....

    It's not silly--it'a pathetic. The right will use anything to get Obama out and them back in. Anything no matter how stupid and hysteria-driven!
    In fact, the more hysteria-driven the better!
