THIS IS THE WICKED WITCH OF THE DAY FOR WHAT SHE’S DOING TO CHILDREN ON HALLOWEEN!
When a friend called me Friday night with a story idea for The Insite I thought he was joking but he wasn’t. Apparently, there was a woman in Detroit who actually asked kids who they supported for President. If the children said they supported Barack Obama they were denied candy. If they said they supported Senator John McCain she gave them M&M’s with a John McCain door hanger. I was shocked that an adult would subject a child to political scrutiny. And there was no shame in the woman’s game because she talked to the local FOX station. Check out the video and come back here and tell us what you think!
DO YOU THINK THEY WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
While most of us sleep in homes, there are at least 15,000 people sleeping on the streets of Houston.
Betty Jean is homeless in Houston. But she embraces a right many with homes ignore.
“In my opinion they just don’t care,” she said. “They got a home they got a job, but I’m not looking at that. I’m looking at what we got out here.”
On the streets of Houston that’s not a lot. Jean is looking for a candidate who will address homelessness and unemployment.

She’s among a growing number of transients in Houston voting in this historical presidential election. A right granted under the law, anyone who is an American citizen, with an address and no felonies still on paper can vote.
If there isn’t a home, what address do you use? They use shelters where many of them get their mail.
A search of Harris County records revealed more than 2,400 registered voters who are homeless. The organization with the most registered homeless is a group called SEARCH.
But voting by some of the homeless is not always about practicing the patriotic right.
Some use their voter registration card as another form of id to get their official Texas identification.
The question is whether the homeless population actually head to the polls on Nov. 4. Advocates say many have already boarded buses and cast their ballots in the early election!
TRICK OR TREAT MR. INSITE!
I’m not quite sure why but Halloween is still one of those holidays the Insite still enjoys like a kid. I started handing out the sweet stuff around 6:30pm and didn’t stop until about 8:45pm. It was like the kids just kept coming. I went through two big bowls of the good stuff. Did you give out candy and how much?
I GUESS MICHELLE WASN’T BALLING AFTER ALL!
Remember hearing Michelle Obama spent more than $400+ at the Waldorf Astoria on room service that included caviar and lobster. Guess what? It’s not true. Mrs. Obama didn’t even stay at the Waldorf Astoria. And now New York Daily News is apologizing for the false and misleading story. Oh by the way, the story came from the PUMA website. If you’re not sure what PUMA is – it’s a group of former Hillary Clinton supporters who felt she was victimized by the Democrat party. If PUMA sounds familiar our good friend here on the Insite, Jennifer Beegle (lady in YouTube Video), said she is a member. Here’s the retraction from the New York Daily News:
October 21, 2008 —
THE source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.
DON’T BE A HUMAN DRONE TO TALK RADIO, PLEASE!
I was serving as master of ceremonies at an event Friday when I met a woman. By all acounts she was very intelligent, smart, and rich. I had a very good conversation with her and her husband who heads a major hospital system in the city. But what surprised me was her belief there was some major conspiracy by the local and national news media. It’s where I totally lost the woman. At that point (honest alert) she seemed to be a nut to me. She said initially she had aspirations to be a television journalist. She said she even interned at KTRK and went out with well respected anchor Melanie Lawson. She then said she gave up her dreams to become a journalists because the assignments desk and newsroom managers tell reporters how to do a story and what angle to take. First, I wondered since she never did get a job in the business what assignments desk editor told her to take a particular angle on a story. Then I wondered if it were true, who was that assignments desk editor. Let me say right now I have never had an assignments desk editor to tell me to be biased or take a particular angle on a story. I told the woman that. I asked her who told her to take an angle. She had no answer but she was more than sure the members of the news media were totally biased and worked together to help only the Democrats or the liberal elite of this country. It’s almost like talking to a drone when you encounter someone like that. They get their talking points from Conservative radio and they all say the same thing. The talking points are scripted to a tee. Have you ever encountered someone who have those same talking points you just heard on Rush, Hannity or our very own Michael Berry? If there is a message from the Insite, it’s people do your own research and come up with your own talking points. People will challenge you and make you look like a fool. Not to say the woman I met last week looked like a fool because she was very pleasant and she stuck to her guns. But please people think for yourselves and don’t listen to people who have their own secret agenda. And what many fail to realize is half the Conservative talk show hosts don’t believe half the crap their saying. It’s designed to entertain you and prompt listeners and phone calls. Nothing here against Michael Berry, I listen to him just about everyday. But bottom line – think for yourselves and do your own research!
DWI SUSPECTS BEWARE OF WHAT THE POLICE HAVE WAITING!
Houston police will unveil a new mobile unit to help them process DWI suspects more quickly.
The unit, known as the Batmobile, will hit the streets Halloween night.
It’s equipped with breath and blood analyzing equipment and even has a small holding cell in it.
The Batmobile is funded by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
VICTIM: SENATOR OBAMA HELP MY FAMILY!
A 52-year-old man who leapt to his death from a freeway overpass left a note asking for Barack Obama to help his family.
El Paso police officer Chris Mears said the man, whose name has not been released, jumped from an overpass onto westbound Interstate 10 shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday. In his car, abandoned nearby, the man left a typewritten note on legal size paper on his dashboard and another attached to a rear window. Both were one-line notes asking for the Illinois senator and Democratic presidential candidate to help his family, Mears said.
Mears said the notes did not include any details about what kind of help the man wanted or what may have prompted him to jump to his death Thursday morning.
CD STOMPING WITH HIS PERSONAL FRIEND PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON!
Here’s a brief note from Insite Political/Religious correspondent Carl ‘The New Hammer’ Davis. He’s apparently traveling the country getting out the vote for the Dems. Unlike Jennifer Beegle, Davis sucked up the loss of Hilary (his personal friend) and is now supporting the party’s candidate of choice and that’s Senator Barack Obama. Here’s the unpdate from Davis:
Just wanted to provide you with an update on my election activities. I am in Toledo, Ohio helping the Obama/Biden Ticket. I will be here until election day. It is cold up here. I flew in last night and it was 39 degrees. You know I am not use to that kind of weather. We are up here trying to win this state. I was at the Early Vote Rally today with President Clinton. See you when I return.
SHOULD SHE GOT TO JAIL FOR HER MADE UP TALE TO SWING THE VOTE AND WIN SYMPATHY FOR MCCAIN?
A John McCain campaign volunteer will enter a probation program for first-time offenders for falsely reporting that a Barack Obama supporter robbed her and then assaulted her and scratched a “B” on her cheek when he saw her McCain bumper sticker.
Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, was to be released from the Allegheny County Jail on Thursday after appearing before a city judge and waiving her right to a preliminary hearing on a misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.
Todd has been jailed since Friday, when police say she acknowledged making up the story about the assault and robbery near an automated teller machine two nights earlier. While jailed, Todd underwent a court-ordered psychiatric examination and was deemed to be competent to stand trial, but in need of further counseling.
“Our focus was really, ‘This is somebody who appeared to have some mental issues,’” said Allegheny County Assistant District Attorney Chris Avetta. “And we wanted to make sure she doesn’t hurt herself or anybody else.”
As a condition of her release, Todd must stay with an uncle in New York. She also must provide the court with her home address in Texas and one for her mother, who also lives there. She must also document every two weeks that she is receiving mental health treatment.
If Todd does that, she will remain free and enter the special program after returning to Pittsburgh for her formal arraignment in January. Under the first-time offenders’ program, Todd will serve probation, normally for about a year, after which her record will be expunged if she completes it without getting into trouble. Mental health counseling will be a condition of the probation.
WHY ARE THEY ATTRACTED TO OBAMA?
Latest polls suggests Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Obama is getting a lot of support from Latinos. The current numbers show Obama has 69% of the Hispanic vote around the country. Manny Barajas told CNN when he hears Senator John McCain talking he hears President Bush and it’s time for a change. CNN also showed their latest predictions on the electoral college vote and Obama has enough to win the Presidency if the election were today as a result of Hispanic voters. The ethnic group is apparently turning some traditional red states blue. According to CNN the latest electoral college vote: Obama 291 to McCains 163. It takes 270 to win the White House!
