Do my bidding! Signed: Barack Hussein Obama

The photo above, says it all. The liberal democrat media in Ohio is in full-on Obama campaign (spin) mode.

The Columbus Dispatch runs a “Ohio newspaper presidential poll” today on the front page, above the fold. What is so very interesting about it is it’s very skewed poll numbers; Obama 51% Romney 46%. Big bold numbers and colors behind the candidates are an immediate eye draw, away from the poll details, printed in small black print. I say skewed poll numbers because the national daily polls have had the contest at Obama 46-47% and Romney 46-47% respectively. However, with Ohio being a swing state, and everywhere Romney and Ryan hold a campaign stop here in the buckeye state they have very large gatherings. Gatherings reminiscent of Obama’08 sizes. So, you can see why Obama has to have good poll numbers in Ohio, it really is make or break for the president.

This recent poll only serves as another reminder that as long as there are presidential races, there will be those using polls to shape public opinion.

Let’s explore the completely disingenuous poll a bit deeper. The U.S.Census Bureau information compiled from 2010 census states that Ohio had 11,544,951 people living in it. Of those the Columbus Dispatch managed to find 861 people over a time of 5 days to question. So, mathematically speaking they polled 0.00746% of Ohioans to arrive at their Obama 51% to Romney’s 46% figure. Despicable.

What’s even more troubling, is this poll is being released just days after the Obama administration has finally started sharing tidbits of truth about the embassy attack in Benghazi, Libya and the subsequent deaths of our ambassador and his security detail.

So, the Dispatch shares a poll showing the president has a 5 percentage point lead over Romney in the mother of all swing states days after what is arguably the worst foreign policy screw ups in the history of our country, coincidence? I think not. Sounds to me like someone called in a favor.

I gather from this poll that the Obama camp knows people are watching and paying close attention this time around. So they’re having their lackey’s in the media work over time to change negative voter sentiment toward their campaign. It can be summed up in two words, liberal fear! And, that is heartening to the American people.

When liberals are lying, and raising hell, America is heading in the right direction.

A great story about just one of our fighting men in Afghanistan. A great read! Get your Kleenex.

lookin' thru my eyes

Click an image to see it full-size:

We had our Transfer of Authority ceremony this morning.  Our replacement unit is now in charge of the mission.  Which means our only job left in Afghanistan is to leave.  So now the waiting officially has begun.

After the ceremony, I set out to do one more personal mission before leaving FOB Apache.  I needed to track down a young Soldier to give him a message from home.

A few days ago I received a short message from a Soldier’s wife.  Her husband is an Army Engineer doing the hard, dusty labor required to build the FOB Apache expansion.  She asked me to pass on a message to her husband, SPC David Sturm, for her.

After the ceremony I grabbed my camera to hunt down SPC Sturm.  I found his unit headquarters and they directed me to the construction site.  I went out…

Is Facebook Too Big To Fail?


Facebook Stock Slide

With an initial public offering of $38.00 a share, a high of $45.25 a share, and a low of $18.75 per share, Facebook’s stock has been as rocky as a soap opera love affair. Today’s trading shows the current price per share is $18.96. However, with this slide, comes the calls for the company’s CEO and majority stock holder Mark Zuckerberg to step down. For some, it’s rather easy to gloat in the downturn of those who they perceive to be “well off” or “rich”. I however marvel in the fact that someone can take what seems to be a simple idea (sharing pictures, ideas, lives), apply the idea to a system that’s already invented (computer, internet), and turn it into a multi-billion dollar company. It really signifies the American dream.
