FLORIDA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE POLLING SHOWS CRIST LEADING BY SOLID MARGIN
Poll also shows Bill Nelson in significant lead

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (September 26, 2006) - Today, the Florida Chamber of Commerce released polling numbers that Attorney General Charlie Crist has a solid 14 point lead over Rep. Jim Davis in Florida's gubernatorial race. According to the poll conducted by McLaughlin and Associates, the races for CFO and Attorney General are within the margin of error with Senate President Tom Lee and Bill McCollum leading their opponents by three points.

Conducted from September 24-25, the poll surveyed 800 likely voters and has a sampling error of +/- 3 percent. The poll was weighted for age, race, gender and demographic distribution.

"While Charlie Crist is leading Jim Davis by 14 points and Bill Nelson is leading Katherine Harris by 29 points, the Cabinet races are all within the margin of error" said Marian Johnson, vice president of political strategy for the Florida Chamber. "These races are flying under the voters' radar - if the election were held today, voters would be voting strictly along party lines."

Other results include:

  • 47 percent of respondents believe that Florida is heading in the wrong direction, versus 39 percent choosing right direction;
  • Governor Jeb Bush received a 63 percent approval rating with 31 percent choosing unfavorable;
  • Florida voters chose affordable homeowners/property insurance as their top concern at 29 percent while 27 percent choose education.

"With 10 candidates and six weeks to go before the general election, we could easily see $100 million being spent on statewide races this cycle," said Johnson.

Virginia: Drake 48, Kellam 41

You will notice that there was another poll taken recently that showed that Kellam was leading Thelma Drake.

However, this poll smacks of being biased towards the Democrats, since it also showed President Bush with an approval rating in Virginia noticibly lower than he has in the nation as a whole. Since Virginia is more Republican than the average American state, it calls the entire poll into question.

Perhaps it has a margin of error of 35 pts?

Well, even if the poll was correct, it is still is good news, since it means she has surged from an 8 pt. deficit to a 7 pt. lead.

Virginia: James Webb Tells Nancy Reagan to go F*ck Herself

Read the article and you will see that as shocking as this headline may be, it's true.

It is reprehensible that this doughy-faced traitor to Ronald Reagan has decided that now it is time to pretend that he has anything in common with our former president. Especially since Reagan died of Alzhiemer's and is unable to defend himself from such character assassination—that he would support a liberal like James Webb.

And finally, where does Webb get off ignoring the wishes of Reagan's widow and running his false ad. I just hope it backfires on Webb and the people of Virginia deal him a blow for desecrating the memory of Ronald Reagan and causing emotional pain for Nancy Reagan.

Christopher Hitchens vs. Bill Maher: The Video Everyone Is Talking About

Who is Bill Maher fooling with his old ratty hair slicked back like he's Jack Nicholson. I really think the old never-has-been believes he's some sort of celebrity. The only reason he has a show is because he hates Bush, Republicans, The Military and America.

I hope you enjoy this video of Christopher Hitchens single handedly going into the lion's den of Maher's hand picked Leftist, whining morons, and then totally destroying the little man in front of his helpless fans.

Idiot Europeans Hate US—Iran, China & North Korea Are Not so Bad

An average of 30% of Europeans look forward to Sharia Law and constant suicide-bombings. To these scumbags, this poses less of a threat than Mickey Mouse and McDonalds.

Disecting a Typically Flawed Poll

Notice some of the flawed thinking in this, a typical "General" Congressional election poll.

1. Gerrymandering is not taken into account. The vast majority of districts in America are Gerrymandered, which means there will be no real contest.

2. The poll only asks registered voters, not likely voters. Since about half of all potential voters will not vote, this is an important mistake by these pollsters. When a poll is taken of likely voters, you usually see a much better result.

3. Historically, these generic polls undercounts the actual Republican turnout. Kind of like how the exit polls in 2000, 2002 and 2004 undercounted the Republican turnout.

Thinking ahead to this November’s elections, if the congressional election were held today, would you vote for the Democratic candidate in your district or the Republican candidate in your district?

The Gettysburg Address

"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."

-- Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

45 Goals of the Communist Party (1963)

  • 01. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  • 02. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  • 03. Develop the illustion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  • 04. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  • 05. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  • 06. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  • 07. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  • 08. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under the supervision of the U.N.
  • 09. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  • 10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
  • 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
  • 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  • 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  • 14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  • 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  • 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  • 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • 18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  • 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  • 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  • 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  • 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
  • 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
  • 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
  • 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  • 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
  • 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
  • 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
  • 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  • 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
  • 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  • 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  • 33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  • 34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  • 35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  • 36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  • 37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  • 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  • 39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  • 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  • 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  • 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
