    Along these lines e mail today about all the uncounted Military votes, although I seriously doubt they would have made a major difference...

    On 144 Sirius yesterday there was a story about some race where a re count was being done, N they kept finding all these boxes with extra vote's all of which just happened to be for Obama and the Democrat that was behind, while disqualifying votes for the Republican for various BS reasons... they were asking the election board to scrutinize this very carefully.

    As I said in my rant We will give Husein his chance but we will be watching very closely, but naming my states Governor Jenifer Grandholm as a finical advisor...

    well just let me say about our state of affairs...

    Michigan has lost close to 500,000 jobs since she came to power, 2.5 million people have moved out of the state, the taxes have increased, she came very close to a governmental shutdown last budget cycle because the republicans kept vetoing her tax increases.
    Her methodology to solve the Michigan finical problems was to increase taxes, the republican method was to control government spending, in the end she got it her way. Now she wants a state income tax increase and a 9 cent a gallon tax increase on the price of gas too...

    And we are off to change with a running start...

    I know what his record is; as an lllinois senator and state senator. As president, he represents everyone, so for all we know he may very well realize this and do what's best for the country and not for his liberal agenda. All I'm saying is that he deserves a chance. Only after he screws up should we then complain.

    He's started. After claiming to bring the country together his first appointment is a rabid partisan.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears

    Here is a scenario for you then, history shows there have been a number of mass transit wrecks in the Chicago area over the years, you see two trains on the same track one stopped and the other high balling it into the terminal, do you wait for the wreck to yell stop, or do you raise the (blue for trains) red flag and yell watch out!!! All we are saying here is based upon his past history, he cannot be trusted with our guns and taxes anymore than you would trust some street bum with your car.

    You can't really believe that. Can a leopard change it's spots?
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    The Scorpion and the Frog

    One day, a scorpion looked around at the mountain where he lived and decided that he wanted a change. So he set out on a journey through the forests and hills. He climbed over rocks and under vines and kept going until he reached a river. The river was wide and swift, and the scorpion stopped to reconsider the situation. He couldn't see any way across. So he ran upriver and then checked downriver, all the while thinking that he might have to turn back.
    Suddenly, he saw a frog sitting in the rushes by the bank of the stream on the other side of the river. He decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.
    "Hellooo Mr. Frog!" called the scorpion across the water, "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?"
    "Well now, Mr. Scorpion! How do I know that if I try to help you, you wont try to kill me?" asked the frog hesitantly.
    "Because," the scorpion replied, "If I try to kill you, then I would die too, for you see I cannot swim!"
    Now this seemed to make sense to the frog. But he asked. "What about when I get close to the bank? You could still try to kill me and get back to the shore!"
    "This is true," agreed the scorpion, "But then I wouldn't be able to get to the other side of the river!"
    "Alright then...how do I know you wont just wait till we get to the other side and THEN kill me?" said the frog.
    "Ahh...," crooned the scorpion, "Because you see, once you've taken me to the other side of this river, I will be so grateful for your help, that it would hardly be fair to reward you with death, now would it?!"
    So the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river. He swam over to the bank and settled himself near the mud to pick up his passenger. The scorpion crawled onto the frog's back, his sharp claws prickling into the frog's soft hide, and the frog slid into the river. The muddy water swirled around them, but the frog stayed near the surface so the scorpion would not drown. He kicked strongly through the first half of the stream, his flippers paddling wildly against the current.
    Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog's back. A deadening numbness began to creep into his limbs.
    "You fool!" croaked the frog, "Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?"
    The scorpion shrugged, and did a little jig on the drownings frog's back.
    "I could not help myself. It is my nature."
    Then they both sank into the muddy waters of the swiftly flowing river.

    Good analogy, Bohemian. Unusual, but good.
