oh boy...

[Picture of Raegan with a toy light bulb.]

I've been reading about Obama. Not because I was interested in voting for him but because of what other bloggers have posted or said about him. This morning after stopping by a message board that I visit, I decided I would see just what this guy stands for since so many seem supportive of him.

On my Google searches I ran across another blogger, Ken Berwitz at Hopelessly Partisan. He has a lot to share of Obama (and of the other candidates too). I've been planning on voting for Ron Paul and now I am wondering what in the world do "white supremacists and skinheads" find so pleasing about him? Read Ken's comment in response to "Ron Paul Can't Buy Respect" at The New York Sun's ePaper.

I did read a lot of Obama today including this at Ken Berwitz's blog:

For months - up to and including just yesterday - I have been warning you about the racist and anti-Semitic connections of Barack Obama. The connections mainstream media have barely told anyone about, as Mr. Obama rides his flying carpet above reproach or criticism.
I am not impressed with what I read of Obama, voting for him was never a consideration for me but I had to take a peek. The media continues to sing his praises. Well maybe not Fox News, called Faux News by New York's Daily News, so I feel like maybe Fox is not as slanted in their reporting. I wrote to NBC's Today Show and told them "I am sick of seeing Hillary and Obama and would they please show us the REST of the candidates????" But.. you think they would listen to me?? NOOOOOOOOOO!

I've learned of the 2008 issues related to Christianity which I am interested in, (or should be!) have been stated at the Christian Coalition of America's website. One of them being "Net Neutrality." I've never heard of this being an issue until I read it here.

If "Net Neutrality" legislation does not pass, consumers will have to pay an additional fee to have a website. The cable/telephone monopoly will be dividing the Internet into a "fast track" and "slow track." Our grassroots, who cannot afford the additional fees, will have to be on the slow track, which will mean that many of our websites will be passed by because the general public will not have the patience to go on the "slow track". Read more at CC.ORG.
For pete's sake, this world changes so fast. Don't be putting my favorite websites (Christian) on a slow... track!!!! That would truly be discrimination, wouldn't it?

There are more issues that we should all be aware of at the Christian Coalition's website, stop by and read about them.

Now that I've been reading so much I should have a better idea of who I would want to vote for....

No, I don't.

oh boy...

...big sigh.

I feel the same way I feel when trying to teach myself java programming... !!!???!!!

Pray without ceasing!!!!

Because we definitely need more Light shed on the subjects!

Thanks for the information, Connie. I haven't had the time to get on the net to do any research. Since the mainstream news media have their agenda in mind, we obviously aren't going to be getting the truth from them. I definately will check out the sites you mentioned. Thanks again.

Voting for Obama was never a consideration for me either. However, my disillusioned, 25-year old daughter was actually planning on voting for him despite having been brought up in a Conservative Christian home! She had read a book he wrote and had made up her mind. That didn't sit well with me so that's when I decided to do some of my own research. I wanted her to look beyond the shine & polish and see where his heart lies! After my post from a couple of days ago, she has changed her mind. GOOD! I never said a word to her, she read the facts for herself. That's my fear, the younger generation sees him as the next Messiah and don't realize that they would in essence, be selling their souls in regards to values, morality and integrity!

THanks for posting these informative sites. I have no idea at this point whom I am voting for. Thank goodness Nov is a ways off! I like Hilary as our senator here in NY but that is because the other one.....well...let's just say she did more work than he did...of course now she is just out campaigning but...the whole voting for president thing seems to get harder each time!
