McCain Drops Out of Race

10/26/2008 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John McCain's brother Joe just announced he's withdrawing from the campaign ... so now Palin really is John's #2.

Joe's announcement came days after a 911 tape surfaced, in which he bitched about traffic and then dropped the F-bomb.

The effect on McCain's campaign is unknown.

from workforce.com:

" Powerful House Democrats are eyeing proposals to overhaul the nation’s $3 trillion 401(k) system, including the elimination of most of the $80 billion in annual tax breaks that 401(k) investors receive.

House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller, D-California, and Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Washington, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee’s Subcommittee on Income Security and Family Support, are looking at redirecting those tax breaks to a new system of guaranteed retirement accounts to which all workers would be obliged to contribute."

That is exactly what happened in Argentina. The government confiscated all the people's assets in the banks and nationalized them. I guess Obama will do that too. Nice going people!

The Democrats would have to take my 401k from my dying fingers before they get their hands on it! What gives them the right to have control over my assets and turn everything into a welfare state! The article is in Newsweek and World Report if you want to read it.

Hey stay on topic all you no-minds.

Joe McCain's looks are irrelevant to the story.

He said some words he should not have.

He apologized, admitted his error.........What the hell do you people want?

Before you go all wanky on me...I am not a McCain supporter...............But then who in their right mind would be?

The man apologized...I give him credit for that.

Unfortunately for you,Diane and all the others that have a 401k or similar Retirement Account, They, the Government by a vote of Congress can DISOLVE the assets AT PRESENT VAlUE (probability down - 50% - 60%) from a year ago, and just give you back your money! Good Luck, if the Democrats control both houses of Congress, because you know President Obama will sign that one into Law!

John Murtha: another corrupt democrat: lies, lies, lies (it is is what Obama's candidacy is about)

No matter how proud their tradition, every military organization has its embarrassments. The US Marine Corps has John Murtha — currently a Democrat Congressman from Pennsylvania.

For 34 years he served in Congress with relative obscurity.

But on 17 May 2006 John Murtha went on national television and boldly stated that eight of our Marines in Iraq “...killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”

John Murtha rushed in front of the cameras before ANY evidence had been presented.

Taking it a step further, John Murtha even insisted that anyone who said differently, up to and including General Peter Pace, was a liar.

From that moment, the liberal media fell in love with John Murtha. Now they run to him and eagerly repeat his defeatist message in their newspapers and on their 24-hour cable news channels.

But facts are stubborn things.

Seven of the eight Marines he accused of murder have been cleared of all charges.

The final Marine awaits his day in court, and he has been informed that his case has been postponed indefinitely, or at least until after the election (perhaps to avoid embarrassing John Murtha even further...)

But politics can bring its own brand of justice.

As a result, the Chairman of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition which is compromised of over 80 veterans groups representing over 250,000 veterans...

...Is asking you to help him retire John Murtha this November.

Obama Bans TV Station over Biden Questions

Sunday, October 26, 2008 11:52 AM

I am surprised that Obama didn't order his Storm Troopers into the TV station and have those reporters shot in the head!
Oh, I forgot, it's not Nov.5, YET!

I guess Biden was expecting a Larry King type CNN or "Softball" MSNBC type inverview. The Obama campaign has come to expect the media to keep in lock step with their DNC talking points. God help us if the media keeps doing what they are doing. The media was suppose to be the public watchdog over our government. Looks like that dog was put to sleep.

There is a big difference between progressive tax increases and "spreading the wealth"..Taxes are supposed to be used to fund the Gov't..People who are on Medicare and social security and food stamps, are not recipients of tax dollars..they are given govt funded assistance..What Obabma wants to do is take Joe the plumbers money and give it to Joe the crack addict..how do you provide tax refunds to non tax payers? 40 percent pay no federal income tax..but somehow they will get a tax check with their names on it from me and you and Joe the plumber..the govt will only be the middle man..reaching into peoples pocket that worked hard to earn and giving it directly to others who can use this money anyway the want..we don't know if they will be responsible and use it wisely..maybe they will but think of the scenario where a crack addict will take you hard earned money and light it up and smoke it away..thanks
Obama!!! real Socialist degenerate

Are they afraid of being asked a truthful and honest question???
They can question Sarah Palin in the most horrible interviews, and mutilate her and her family, but these straight forward questions from a woman who, by the way, should be on National TV, not just a local station....are snubbed by the O/B campaign! My oh My.
