From misreporting his comments on whether he would participate in the debate against Barack Obama tonight, to creating lies out of thin air about his attendance at a White House conference on the Wall Street meltdown, the national Democratic leadership is going after John McCain with a vengeance.

Which means, he totally outmaneuvered them, has them scared silly, and they are reacting with predicable venom, meaning the truth is not an issue.

We are in dire straits nationally. Our financial industry is on the ropes. This happened thanks to Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank, many of their colleagues, and former President Bill Clinton.

How do I arrive at this conclusion? From my late father. He came to America in the mid-1920s from Scotland, and was just entering his teen years when the stock market crashed in 1929. He lived through the Great Depression and was personally aware of its impact on our Country.

My father told me many times in the 60s and 70s that even though we would periodically have slow economic times we would never have another depression because safeguards had been put in place in the 30s that would prevent the circumstances that caused the Crash of 1929 to repeat. But then in 1999 the US Congress passed new legislation, and Bill Clinton signed it, which removed the decades old safeguards and started the ball rolling toward this point.

President Bush tried to stop what they were doing and turn it around, but despite all that has been said about Bush in the last 8 years, he is one man, and without Congress behind him, he can't enact laws on his own. Congress of course was not going to bring back the safeguards because it is a den of thieves and many of the people who are running their mouths now, were making big money from their duplicity.

That is where there should be a federal investigation.

But did you notice that the usual clamor for "investigation" that you hear from Democrats in Congress when they have successfully manufactured a fake issue, is suspiciously absent this time? Want to know why?

Because most of the Democratic windbags in Congress would have to recuse themselves from participating because they would be investigating themselves, a clear conflict of interest. But that hasn't stopped these lying schemers from rushing the cameras to make diversionary comments about John McCain.

The one I like best is Harry Reid, who should be crowned Nevada's All Time Liar, standing in front of the cameras claiming John McCain is a media hog. What freaking nerve. And while that lying scumbag is bashing McCain, we find out from Michelle Malkin that Reid was trying to slide a ban on drilling for shale oil into the legislation for the financial bailout.

Is this guy just a classic example of skid marks or what? And his fellow Democrats tried to put earmarks that Bush threw out of a previous military spending bill, back into this bailout. What a bunch of oily, sleazy, low-class, ignorant pond scum.

These posturing criminals have been chanting "change, change, change" for the past year or so, and a Marine buddy of mine sent me a little item today that addresses that mantra perfectly.

So I'll leave you with the quiet sounds of Democratic vultures and locusts, munching their way through America's economy - probably on purpose if their past actions are any benchmark, and in the meantime, tell me if the following isn't right on the mark.

Subject: Change, Change, Change

Not long ago I read a joke ... It said all the politicians running for president are promising change to the American people. We send them billions and billions of tax dollars and they send us the change. Funny? Not really; there is too much truth in it to be funny.

That got me to thinking ... They all promise change. How about if they run on a promise of restoration rather than change. A restoration that would take us back in time to a place where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable. Change? That, in truth, is what they have been giving us all along.

We used to have a strong dollar .... Politicians changed that.

Marriage used to be sacred ... Politicians are changing that.

We used to be respected around the world ... Politicians changed that.

We used to have a strong manufacturing economy ... Politicians changed that.

We used to have lower tax structures ... Politicians changed that.

We used to enjoy more freedoms .... Politicians changed that.

We used to be a large exporter of American made goods ... Politicians changed that.

We used to teach patriotism in schools ... Politicians changed that.

We used to educate children in schools ... Politicians changed that.

We used to enforce LEGAL citizenship ... Politicians changed that.

We used to have affordable food & gas prices ... Politicians changed that, too... and one could go on and on with this list.

What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change that as well if you will elect them. When, oh when, is America going to sit back with open eyes and look at what we once were and where we have come and say, enough is enough? The trouble is, America's youthful voters today don't know of the great America that existed forty and fifty years ago. They see the world as if it has always existed, as it is now. When will we wake up? Tomorrow may be too late. When will America realize.. Politicians are what is wrong with America?

What is needed is for the constitution to be amended to limit all Senators and Representatives to two terms.
