Biden's latest gaf in his ever increasing series of gafs

Set the Way-back Machine for 1929 ...

In today's Episode of the "Peabody's Improbable History" Professor Peabody will be paid by Joe "Gaf Machine" Biden and his pet boy Sherman will be played by Barrack Hussein Obama. (Ok so that's a atrocious pun and it's meant in the spirit of the shockingly tasteless puns that each of the 91 original episodes.)

Barack Obama’s Washington insider running mate, Joe "Gaf Machine" Biden said “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened,”‘

Vice presidential candidate Joe "Gaf Machine" Biden thinks today’s leaders should take a lesson from the history books and follow fellow Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s response to a financial crisis.

OK, as a student of history, Biden had me confused and thinking maybe my 5th grade US History teacher had made some mistakes but I reminded myself this is the running mate of the man that thinks we have "57 states" plus Alaska and Hawaii and one other. It's Obvious which "leaders" need to do some remedial studies when it comes to history.

In case you are not convinced I will spell it out for you. Biden attended the University of Delaware in Newark, where by his own later description he was a lazy student. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in history and political science in 1965, ranked 506th of 688 in his class. (In the Bottom 25% of his class) He went on to receive his Juris Doctor from Syracuse University College of Law in 1968,] where by his own description he again underperformed and ranked 76th of 85 students. (in the Bottom 15% of his class). During his first year there, he was accused of having plagiarized 5 of 15 pages of a law review article. Biden said it was inadvertent due to his not knowing the proper rules of citation, and Biden was permitted to retake the course after receiving a grade of F, which was subsequently dropped from his record.

Although, I am sure Biden's words made for good TV and the Democrats ate up his pandering. It, like most of Obama's Speeches and ads, was full of factual errors and mis-statements’. (Down South we call those things lies.)

The problem is, Herbert Hoover was in office when the stock market crashed in October 1929 not FDR. AND There also was no television at the time; TV wasn’t introduced to the public until a decade later, at the 1939 World’s Fair.

FDR was elected three years later when voters denied Hoover a second term. The FDR appealed to the “forgotten man” by promising a “new deal” to solve the Depression era.

So, I guess we can assume that either Joe Biden does not know History, or has some how invented his own Way-Back Machine and is going to change things.

Either way, I can't wait to see Palin mop the floors with Biden in the VP debate and use his words against him. "Part of what a leader does is instill confidence and demonstrate that he or she knows what he is talking about and communicates with people that 'if you listen to me and do what I'm saying we can fix this." Then in the very next breath he proves that he doesn't know what the flux he is talking about. Classic Mr Peabody …err… I meant Biden.

Biden isn't patriotic

Wow...I guess Biden isn't patriotic...

Well that is exactly what Joe Biden said: "lets be patriotic and give money to those less fortunate." How dare him! Isn't charity the same thing; giving to the less fortunate. Very patriotic giving to those with less. Well here are the figures of charitable contributions from the Bidens's as reported on his last 10 tax returns about his charitable givings. Are you serious!! What a lame ass excuse for human being.


Gross Income Charity
1998 $215,432 $195
1999 $210,797 $120
2000 $219,953 $360
2001 $220,712 $360
2002 $227,811 $260
2003 $231,375 $260
2004 $234,271 $380

So, what is a billion anyway?

This is too true to be funny!!

The next time you hear a democrat use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want that idiot spending YOUR tax money.

One billion (1,000,000,000)is a difficult number to comprehend,

So think on this for a minute.

1. One Billion grains of rice weighs 55,250 pounds. (That’s as much as a dozen adult elephants.)

2. One Billion inches equals 15,782.83 miles. (If you drove for One Billion inches how far would you have to travel? Well … if you were to drive from LA to New York and back twice, then drove from LA to Daytona Beach, FL where you drove two full Daytona 500’s then drove to from Daytona to St Louis you would still have to drive about 260 miles to equal One Billion inches.)

3. Stack of One Billion one dollar bills laid one on top of the other would be about 67.9 miles high and would weigh 450,000 pounds.

4. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

5. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

6. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

7. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

8. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let's take a look at New Orleans It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division

Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (Democrat), is presently asking the Congress for $250 BILLION to rebuild New Orleans.

Interesting number, what does it mean?

A. Well, if you are one of 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, child), you each get $516,528.

B. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.

C. Or, if you are a family of four, your family gets $2,066,012.

Washington, D.C .. HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators broken?!?

We rebelled agaist England over a 0.026% tax on tea.

Now we have:

Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL License Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Dog License Tax
Federal Income Tax
Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)
Fishing License Tax
Food License Tax
Fuel Perm it Tax
Gasoline Tax
Hunting License Tax
Inheritance Tax
Inventory Tax
IRS Interest Charges (tax on top of tax),
IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax),
Liquor Tax,
Luxury Tax,
Marriage License Tax,
Medicare Tax,
Property Tax,
Real Estate Tax,
Service charge taxes,
Social Security Tax,
Road Usage Tax (Truckers),
Sales Taxes,
Recreational Vehicle Tax,
School Tax,
State Income Tax,
State Unemployment Tax (SUTA),
Telephone Federal Excise Tax,
Telephone Federal Universal Service Fe e Tax,
Telephone Federal, State and Local Su rcharge Tax,
Telephone Minimum Usage Su rcharge Tax,
Telephone Recurring and Non-recurring Charges Tax,
Telephone State and Local Tax,
Telephone Usage Charge Tax,
Utility Tax,
Vehicle License Registration Tax,
Vehicle Sales Tax,
Watercraft Registration Tax,
Well Permit Tax,
Workers Compensation Tax.


Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What the heck happened?

This is what happened. Can you say “Tax and Spend” … can you say “Democrats!' can you say it together “Tax and Spend, Democrats!” Yes that’s right I fully blame “Tax and Spend” Democrats for bankrupting the USA under the guise of social reform.

And I still have to 'press1' for English.

I hope this post goes around the USA at least ONE BILLION times

Why I cling to my guns and religion

(Note to my dim-witted Democrat friends just skip to the last two paragraphs otherwise I'll just confuse you with facts,)

I guess we all remember Barack Hussein Obama, Jr's infamous statement "it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

I have few problems with his statement. One is because it is a general statement that has no qualifying words to modify it to make it true. The word 'some' thrown in would have cut the fuse of the bomb it has become for Barack. Do we need a president that makes errors as simple as this?

Some of my Democrat friends have problems with anyone that believes in any form of higher power. So, I will not get in a debate over the merits of praying to Jesus vice "Fred the lettuce Head" from that old "What's Happening" episode, or how belief in God is as "crazy" as believing in the Keebler Elves. Instead I will simple state that the people of faith I know don't "cling to" religion because they're bitter.

So what about clinging to guns?

Well here are some facts:

All firearms in Brazil are required to be registered with the state (same as here in the USofA.)

The minimum age for ownership is 25. (Varies by state here in the USofA.)

In Brazil it is generally illegal to carry a gun outside your house.( Varies by State here in the USofA.)

The total number of firearms in Brazil is thought to be around 17 million with 9 million of those being unregistered. Some 39,000 people died in 2003 due to gun-related injuries in Brazil. In 2004, that number was 36,000.

Although Brazil has 100 million fewer citizens than the United States, and far more restrictive gun laws, there are 25 percent more gun deaths per year on average. Some sources indicate that homicide rates due to guns are approximately four times higher than the rate in the United States.

Clashes with police killed a record 1,260 civilians in Rio de Janeiro state last year — nearly the same number of all people murdered in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles combined in 2007. The Brazilian tally was in fact likely higher: a third of precincts lacked computers to report any murders.

Brazilian police carried out a "significant proportion" of the 48,000 murders that swept Brazil last year, according to a U.N. report released Monday, casting doubt on the government's ability to curtail drug violence and reign in vigilante militias.

The report by U.N. special envoy on extra-judicial killings Philip Alston said police murder three people a day on average in Rio de Janeiro, making them responsible for one in five killings in the city, which is plagued by drug-gang violence and roving militias of off-duty police.

Why do I bring up this comparison of Brazil and the USofA?

Because, people should not be afraid of their government. Instead the government should be afraid of it's people.

Here is a quote from Adolf Hitler, 1935. "This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future."

What did the founding fathers of the USofA have to say about gun control?

Patrick Henry said "Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."

James Madison said "Americans [have] the right and advantage of being armed -- unlike citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust people with arms."

Thomas Paine said "...Arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The balance of power is the scale of peace."

Noah Webster said "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword because the whole body of people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States..." -

George Mason said "I ask sir, who is the militia? It is the whole people...To disarm the people, that is the best and most effective way to enslave them..."

Are you considering backing gun control laws? Do you think that because you may not own a gun, the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment don't matter?


In 1929 the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, approximately 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and others, who were unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million "educated" people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

That places total victims who lost their lives because of gun control at approximately 56 million in the last century. Since we should learn from the mistakes of history, the next time someone talks in favor of gun control, you really should find out which group of citizens they wish to have exterminated.

It has now been over a since gun owners in Australia were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed, a program costing the government more than $500 million dollars. The results Australia-wide; Homicides are up 3.2%, Assaults are up 8 %, and Armed robberies are up 44%.

In Australia’s state of Victoria, homicides with firearms are up 300%! Over the previous 25 years, figures show a steady decrease in armed robberies and Australian politicians are on the spot and at a loss to explain how no improvement in "safety" has been observed after such monumental effort and expense was successfully expended in "ridding society of guns."

It's time to state it plainly; Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives, protect children and property and, yes, gun-control laws only affect the law-abiding citizens. For proof, see Mexico. It's illegal for anyone but the cops to have guns in Mexico. Yet, Mexico's murder rate is almost 5 times as high as the USofA's (25 per 100,000 Mexico vice 5.7 per 100,000 USofA.)

My point?

(Nice of my Democrat friends to rejoin me.)

Basically, I cling to my guns because my second amendment right is the only thing that guarantees me all the other rights our Constitution offers me.

So, why do I cling to my religion? Because my belief in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior, His message of love and forgiveness, the power of prayer and the Sixth Commandment (You shall not kill) are the only things that keep me from using my Second Amendment Right to force my beliefs and my ideas for making this country a better place on others.
