Why I am Voting Against Barak Obama

I know. You're wondering why I am talking about politics on this blog about astronomy, UFOs, aliens and other such stuff? Well... Let me explain.

This election will affect all of us. Not just Wall Street. Not just Joe America, but all of us. Even us way out on the fringe's edge! I'm sure that some would have you believe that myself and others from THE MILLENNIUM GROUP have no values, not even any morals, and not any beliefs. That's just not true. (In the next few months, you'll find out that I am very unlike the usual fringe writer. The new website is soon to be launched and I think if you are a regular reader you will be happily surprised at what I have for you).

First, let me speak personally. I believe that to disagree, is alright. You can feel free to disagree with me. But I also feel it's alright, and even my legal right if not obligation to express my opinion. If you disagree with me, as long as it is civil, I will post it and I won't call you names!

I'm voting against Obama because of his voting record and thus his stance about abortion. This is very wrong and in my belief is even evil. He has supported legislation that says that it is alright for an abortionist to kill a newborn after he has induced labor, if that baby is alive out of the mother's womb. Here's a quote from Michael Gerson of the Washington Post on Obama's stand:

"Obama's record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion -- a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called "too close to infanticide." Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" because of a crisis pregnancy -- hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life."

And in this next quote Gerson speaks of another popular senator's position:
When Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer was pressed to affirm that she opposed the medical killing of children after birth, she refused to commit, saying that children deserve legal protection only "when you bring your baby home." It was unclear whether this included the car trip."

That reason is the reason why I'm voting against Obama.

Now to the issues that probably concern you and me. I have this idea that many who call themselves, or think of themselves as, "Liberal", honestly believe that if a Liberal Democrat is in theWhite house that there will be more disclosure. Well, the sad fact of the issue is that we have had Liberal Democrats in the White house, and here we are. Not much better than we were 10, 20, or 50 year ago. There was admittedly some limited help from the Freedom of Information Act, but the greatest leap that we have made in understanding this issue has been from persistent researchers. Even the Freedom of Information Act was very controlled and if there weren't people like fifteen year old John Greenewald jr. we would never know the things that we do know.

So if you're expecting Obama to suddenly come out and say "here's what we know about the UFO/alien issue", you're very lost in this world. which brings me to another reason I'm not voting for him. This last month money has been tight around my household. I started looking for ways to cut back of course, like any sensible person might do. I looked at my paycheck stub first. Have you done this lately? I can't believe how much gets taken out of my hard earned bucks! Then I took a look at my utility bills. WOW! I can't believe the taxes and fees that every stinking one of tack on to the bill. It's not just paying for the service anymore. Than in our little Southern California town, they want to pass another add on to the local utility bills to pay for the city council's past poor budget handling. This is why I can't vote for Obama. Today he told a plumber that he wants to "redistribute wealth".

I am tired of government involved in my life and taking away what I myself have earned. Am I concerned about the poor? Of course I am. In fact I gave more to charity over the last ten years than Biden and Obama did together. I'm not bragging... well I guess I am. Please forgive me. But I'm not really all that wealthy, not like those two guys are. But the point is - LESS GOVERNMENT, NOT MORE! More government means more control not less. More government control means less info on the subject at hand. Does that mean that McCain will be more forthcoming? What do you think? At least there's a better chance at less government and not more.

So this election does concern us interested in this issue. Someone please ask these candidates if they will be more forthcoming on this issue! See you soon!

Remember... the new site is coming!

Is It Time For Something New?

Well... I was really upset when Mysterious Universe left the air. Benjamin Grundy was great with his Ozzie accent and he kept everything new and fresh. I don't know for sure what happened. My guess is that he just got overwhelmed. It's a lot of work to keep up a site without help. I have some experience at that. I have had many contributors and some wonderful people that put forth their ideas. But in the end, I was responsible for orchestrating the whole thing. I had to learn the code for developing the web page and continue to write for the page.

And then when Kent Steadman left the earth I was very upset. Kent and I used to post things back and forth, in support of each other. He had a great site and did some heavy duty posting.

I try to keep up with some of the other folks that have interest in the same areas. I listen to Whitley Strieber's podcasts. Whitley was really quite kind to us back in the late 90's. He hosted our group on Art Bell when we were posting about the Orca.

While I have my differences with all of these fellows, I still believe they all have important contributions to make. I have my own ideas and beliefs. I think that it is very important to show respect to each other in this field. I know one post that one of our writers did, got Richard Hoagland upset at me. While I respect all of these fellows, I still believe that it's alright to have differing points of view. Else how would we ever arrive at any answers? Again, all of these folks have invaluable contributions to make to the field.

So I guess it's time to renew. I have been working very hard on renewing the TMG website and adding some very interesting items. There will be a brand new podcast. A new hard copy newsletter. And the site will have an entirely new look. I think it looks pretty darn good. But that's me... I did the developing!

The unveiling? I'm working on it. It won't be too long. Please be patient. And if you have any things you would like to especially see, please let me know. I surely appreciate all that our readers have done for us. Thank you. I hope you will come along for the ride!

Watch for the grand opening!
