Originally, I had intended to post happy moments and memories for my homeschool kids to peruse on this blog. However, with Obama's election, my awareness of world issues that affect my beloved country are pushing to the forefront. I'll get on my soapbox today and then leave the rest to Pundit and Pundette.
These stories are just too grim and too close to ignore.

a comment posted by 'ender' re: the recent New York beheading: "simple answer, he was getting funding for his TV channel from the saudi's. having his wife divorce him would have made him look weak. Now he has proven to his financial backers that he is a man. watch and see who is going to be paying for his lawyer and if saudi tries to give him back dated diplomatic immunity."
"The jihad donations were hardly the only bloody red flags. The first in my series of posts ran July 19th. Obama's overseas (foreign) contributors are making multiple small donations, ostensibly in their own names, over a period of a few days, some under maximum donation allowances, but others are aggregating in excess of the maximums when all added up. Half a million dollars had been donated from overseas by unidentified people "not employed".
The more questions we answered the more questions we discovered.
Thousands of Obama's foreign donations ended in cents. The "cents" did not make sense. And we compared McCain donation documentss to Obama's. McCain's records are nothing like Obama's. McCain's are so clean. No cents, all even dollar amounts. But Obama's contained thousands of strange, odd amounts -- evidence of foreign contributors, since Americans living overseas would almost uniformly be able to contribute dollars. Still no media."
