More Embarassment

James David Manning Ph.D, blasts Barack Obama because of the Obama Girl videos, neglecting to remember that the Obama campaign had nothing to do with them. He also accuses Obamas dad of 'whoring after a white woman'.

WTF is with these preachers who use these churches as havens for their insane political and racial rhetoric?

Where the fuck is the IRS??????

While I think Obama 'weenied out' of his duty to kick Wright to the curb, this Manning guy is a total freakazoid who makes Wright look like his only misdeed was escaping from an alzheimers unit.

The first amendment sure does hurt sometimes......

Lord save us from the preachers.

Embarrassed by What People Say

Considering Barack Obamas speech today regarding his pastor at Trintiy UCoC I have to admit that I am totally embarrassed.

Face it, Jeramiah Wright is a bigoted fruitcake. But thats OK because this is America, land of the First Amendment. Wright has as much right as anyone else to spew racial hatred as the white supremacist agrarian racist fruitcakes on the many southern born and bred websites. We may not like it and we may decry it but it or not...the guy has a right to speak his mind. (If you can call it that.)

My problem is twofold.

If Trinity is a church and churches are about preaching the gospel, then Trinity needs to have their tax free status revoked by the IRS as the message has changed from the gospel to politics and race issues.

The second problem stems from the fact that Wright seems to have lost what the gospel is really all about. If he were to preach the gospel..really preach the gospel would there be a need for racist fruitcake ranting from the pulpit? Does this man even know WHAT the gospel is? Does he even know who Jesus is? What kind of pastor...who supposedly has a call from God to preach uses Gods' name in vain in a sermon? What kind of pastor called by God to preach preaches hatred in Gods name?

I can appreciate Barack Obama addressing the racial issues, however I would like to hear him address how he can stand by a man who professes Christ yet shows everything that is the antithesis of Christ by his words.

That alone would be enough to sever this relationship...regardless of whether or not the pastor married him, baptized his children and was his spiritual mentor. If Barack Obama is a professing christian he needs to stand up and say that Wright is conpletely wrong and has left his first love. Which is what Christ is supposed to be to any professing Christian. (Now I know that all of you right wing religious Pat Robertson/Jerry Fallwell/Rush Limbaugh/Sean Hannity crazy assess out there will say that the first love is the repukelican party and taking dominion over society...but we really all do know how its' really supposed to be don't we?)

If Wright is the kind of spiritual mentor who is the antithesis of all things Christ why does Obama continue to cling to him? Who is the goat in this picture?

This bitch has to walk away from a church that she had been a member of for 15 years because the pastor left his first love....hard to do...but necessary to preserve the relationship with ...the first love.

Obama...rethink this...please. I am totally embarrassed for you and your church.

Wright....don't fight it if the IRS sends you a letter revoking Trinitys' tax free brought in on yourself and the churches' members.

Dead Bear in the Middle of the Road

Was a bitch right or what on this shit??? The Bear got eaten alive by JP Morgan Chase with funds from Uncle Ben and the blessings of Bush and Paulson. Two bucks a share!!!

I bet this was the first time Bush was really aware that some serious shit was wrong with the economy. What is really funny/weird is that no matter what is going the time the presidential election rolls around shit is always about the's like there are presidential-election-economy-gnomes that stir it all up and then run away and hide.

Problem is no one knows how to listen to Fed bullshit now that Greenspan isn't there speaking in "FedSpeak". The Fed did just fine if no one knew what the fuck it meant.

Yeah....we can always put all the christian right divisive issues on the back burner..because it really IS about the economy...stupid.

Bailing Out the Bear

Uncle Ben and the Federal Reserve (see valentine to ben posted earlier) have bailed out Bear Stearns to the tune of we-can't-tell-you but the Bear has a write downs of 2.75 BILLION mostly due to the mortgage sub prime mess the USA is now in.

JPMorgan-Chase was the one who pumped in capital into the bears cave with the blessings of Uncle Ben. Chase is in pretty good I smell this bear getting eaten alive?

Which leads me to remember just how pissed off I am that theres even a fucking sub prime crisis to begin with.....

In 2004 hubby & I decided that we needed more space (we really did) and we decided to buy a new house with sorta well known to the 1st time home builder whose CEO resigned after back dating some options.....

Bottom line...since I was applying for the mortgage in my name only you would have thought the world had come to an end....all I heard from various home builder mortgage brokers was: Miss Bitch you are self employed.

No shit.

The last moron that said that to me received the "I know that you stupid bitch" answer at which point my husband sweetly (he knew better) asked me to go get something to drink....

Bottom line, told home builder mortgage people to fuck off and applied at national savings & loan. The mortage system was so fucked up there that I was dealing with a loan officer in FLORIDA and an underwriter in San Francisco who kept having fights with his boyfriend who then would get pissed and go nuts at work....

Home Builder was pissed that we did not buy 20,000 worth of upgrades when we built the house and used only 7800 of our 9700 in incentive money leaving extra money on the down payment. They took 10 months to build a 120 day house....and then had the nerve to want a good customer service survey... WTF?????????????

S&L Branch manager saves my ass. (NOTE: When dealing with S&L never call the 800 number always go to the branch...the executive people are CLUELESS....) we close and move in.

That 169,900 house could have cost our asses nearly 200,000 if we had bought all the shit home builder wanted to sell us at hyper inflated prices. Of course the home builder mortgage company would have financed all the shit we wanted at 2 points above what everyone else was getting because my ass was self employed.

Instead of buying their high priced lighting I bought on sale at Home Depot and Same with the storm doors...Andersen at Home Depot. I also got blinds for 22 windows for about 1050 from an online website...75% less than home-builder studio.

Bottom line....people just got too fucking happy with shit and no one ever looked at the future and said Hmmmm what happens IF? BTW most of the variable rate mortages were tied to the LIBOR (London Index Bank Overnight Rate) and when that bitch moved...straight up! We refi'd our variable rate that was on its way to 7.5 back to 5.8 30 year fixed 24 months after closing.

People got caught because they were not educated consumers. For fucks sake people...get with it! If you are going to sign a note for several hundred thousand dollars don't you think some education is in order? Like WTF am I signing? WTF does it mean ? Will my ass be able to pay for it if shit gets nasty? Then you better learn how to figure with a calculator the shit is nasty results and show much it will cost your ass as well. You also better learn how to read the financial pages on Yahoo Finance and keep up with your shit.

Sorry if your ass is losing your home...sorry you believed all the bullshit you got fed. Me? I refuse to let someone else tell me how much money I need to spend to make my ass happy.

Dave Ramseys "Total Money Makeover" would be a good start.
