Vodpod videos no longer available.
Check out these interesting videos from youtube vlogger, Dr. Bob Basso. He goes by the youtube username Funbobbasso, so I figure the guy can’t be too bad, with “fun” in his name and all.
Dr. Basso is a 70 year old motivation speaker and, a guest professor at UCLA. His first video has received almost 3 million views and his newest (posted below) will be sure to do as well if not better. In his videos, Dr. Basso can be seen impersonating Thomas Paine, one of the nation’s Founding Father’s. Thomas Paine wrote the pro-revolutionary pamphlet, “Common Sense” in 1776. The pamphlet was read by an estimated three-fourths of all the colonists, and called for independence from Great Britain.
Dr. Basso’s authentic looking American Revolution period costume originally grabbed my attention a few months back when he posted his first video, “The Second American Revolution”. In it, he warns of a government out of control, and American dis-unity. He is quite entertaining and passionate at the least, but his message is even more engaging. While I can’t agree with all of his points, he certainly make some very good ones.
Today Bob’s message is the same as Thomas Paine’s. His latest video, Thomas Paine slams congress for, “passing a the largest spending bill in history without even reading it”. He is also calling for Americans to have a modern day “Tea Party”. Instead of throwing tea in Boston Harbor, Dr. Basso calls for Americans to send a message of protest to their representatives in Congressby mailing a tea-bag. (He has since recommended sending the label only as letters with a substance like the tea itself are being discarded).
Let’s follow Bob’s lead… Let’s use some Common Sense, and get these “Unrepresenting-Representatives” out of office.
“I offer nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments, and Common sense . . .” Thomas Paine, Common Sense

Representative Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mi) exchanged witty banter on RedEye with Greg Gutfeld last night. While the banter is fun, pay attention to what the congressman says about halfway through the interview.
He is actually quoting from his own Nov. 2008 article at The American Spectator- “Now, Seize Freedom”.
In short, it really sums up the basic foundations of the Republican Party well.
What are the Republican Party’s principles that will be employed to meet and surmount these challenges? We have five enduring principles:
1. Our liberty is from God not the government.
2. Our sovereignty rests in our souls not the soil.
3. Our security is through strength not surrender.
4. Our prosperity is from the private sector not the public sector.
5. Our truths are self-evident not relative.
Well said Congresman!

Check out this great video I found on YouTube, featuring none other than Senator Government himself, Barrack Obama.
Originally reported by the The Columbus Dispatch, The Havens Corner Church had on their sign a message that was meant to be a warning to young people about the dangers of homsexuality and promiscuity. “I kissed a girl and I liked it…” it quotes from the popular song, but adds, “…then I went to Hell.” (See inset).
“We meant that as a loving warning to teens. … The Scriptures tell us that you should not do what the song tells you to do. The Scriptures are not ambiguous on this issue.”
Allison adds, “If anyone’s seen the video and understands how lewd and suggestive the video is for this song, that is not something young people should go toward.”
On the other side of the fence, Lynne Bowman of Equality Ohio was quoted as saying, “Equality Ohio has identified at least 300 churches in Ohio that welcome gay people looking for a church home. “That sign just tells them where they cannot go to find the love and faith in Christ.”
The sign was displayed for about 24 hours until it was changed to read, “Through faith in Christ God loves us and Forgives our Sins”. The Pastor said it was not due to outrage. He said he received volumes of support from throughout the state.
Instead, he said, “It was confusing to many people who called in or e-mailed because they didn’t know to what he was referring. They were unaware of the song.”
These kind of post always bring out the nut jobs. I look forward to comments from any reasonable preson who would debate this issue.
