Obama: No more lying and hiding the awful truth!

I told you Bernanke was brain dead saying this may be over in a year! Another days proof this is just getting legs! Obama: No more lying and hiding the awful truth!
Obama submits budget blueprint

Obama outlines budget with healthcare fund, tax hikes for wealthy

President Obama puts astronomical $4 trillion price tag on new budget It gets bigger by the minute!

Obama seeks $75.5 billion for Iraq and Afghan wars 2009

Obama asks $130B for Iraq, Afghan wars next year

Obama eyes $200 bln for war effort: report

Obama submits full accounting in 2010 No more lying and hiding the costs of the wars. Wow honesty!

US Initial Jobless Claims Rose to 667000 Last Week

US jobless claims up and continued claims at record

GM Reports $9.6 Billion Loss For 4Q Ahead Of Treasury Mtgs

GM posts massive loss, auditor may question viability I told you this would happen! Time to let them go or nationalize them temporarily!

Honesty and Full Disclosure what a novel idea! That would have changed nothing under the Bush dictatorship since he was the sole decider and listened to no one saying he would rather listen to his dog! We keep saying and rightly so that this is just beginning despite Bernanke's idiocy yesterday saying things could get better in a year! As you know this is just beginning and will get much worse dwarfing the great Depression! Every day reaffirms that! I do not understand how Obama can say one thing and Bernanke another. I thought the Administration was going to be open and on the same page! I started this to show how things were devolving and would get much worse. The I was going to illustrate more purposeful confusion. It just dawned on me that it is the MSM doing it now but for what? Are they just inadequate or once again trying to keep us confused?

Regardless it is obvious at this point that we are nowhere in as deep as deep as we are going to be. President Obama at least realizes that and is not going to hide anything pointing out that Bush hid everything. It sickened me that, that scum did not even include the exorbitant costs of his wars in his so called Budget. While full disclosure would not have changed anything Bush did it will not change anything President Obama is going to do. Not because he is the sole decider but because he is going to do the right thing for our America regardless of the cost. We will get through this but it will not be easy. President Obama must first keep the wolfs (Republicans) at bay!

Bernanke says crisis could be over in a year! Yeah get a grip!This is still just beginning!

Obama to Congress we will rebuild we will recover!

Bernanke says crisis could be over in a year! Yeah get a grip!

Bernanke Warns Home Prices Could Fall Too Far

January existing home sales fall by 5.3 percent to lowest level in nearly 12 years

Bernanke says some markets have eased, 2010 could be a rebuilding year Just what markets are those and rebuilding what?

Wall street tumbles to new low not seen since 1997 Today it continues to get much worse!

This is not going to start getting better in a year! Yeah take two aspirins and call me in the morning! First a little reiteration: Anyway knowing what is happening right now with the coming of the second Great Depression and that it is no surprise but a culmination of hard work by Ronald Reagan and George Bush my thought process once again began taking a longer twisted road Reagan, Bush, Legacy, Security, choking Debt, security? We are more secure? I am afraid you are just beginning to find out how "secure" you are! So I can get off on another tangent and finish this, this could be very long so I did a query of past stories on the subject and it was overwhelming! I decided that I would supply the link and allow you to surf and just look at the titles. There are many stories and links in The Bankrupting of America

Okay speaking of Bankrupting America, keeping us "safe", and the dire financial situation the Republican's worked hard for and is just beginning to come to fruition, I have to go back to a parallel story line before I can go forward. We are today just starting to "bask" in the real rewards of Reagan and Bush's Presidency.First I am reminded that yesterday I saw a list of likely suspects to blame our financial disaster on. Greenspan was on it and should be. However I dismissed the list as bunk when Bill Clinton was number 13 on the list and ahead of Greenspan. Reagan was not on it nor was Bush who Is solely responsible not for the debt but for the collapse and he should have been number one on the list!

* Allow me a little Debt and Republican "success" history! It was President Reagan's "success" in keeping us "safe" that made it necessary for us to start the "Debt Clock" as due to Reagan's success our debt was climbing so fast a clock keeping track of its rapidly changing total was a necessity! Due to Bush's "success" last year the Debt clock had to be refitted as it could only handle a $9 trillion figure. it was refitted to handle $10 trillion. It is now moving so rapidly it makes your head spin.

Okay let me step back! Most know Bush all by himself had created more debt than every single President of the United States combined. What is never spoken and most do not know is that due to their "success" Three Republican President's are responsible for 74% of the country's debt, Reagan, Daddy Bush, and little Bush, At least until our current situation. I was just researching our debt and noticed so called experts say the true cost of the stimulus Bill is $3.27 trillion. $10.6 trillion is prior worthless stimulus packages, $2 trillion for Treasury Secretary Geithner, The auto Industry wants more, States are starting to fail.

That reminds me of something I say too often now. Of course I am talking about California and you know the saying, as California goes so goes the Nation. We are in serious trouble the hell with what is developing on the Afghan Pakistan Border. All these bailouts are worthless and this mess is just beginning. We will choke our kids with their debt! I ask you is that "success"? Is that security? That is being kept secure by Republican's? We can't afford any more security! You can see their true legacy the Bankrupting of America and Bush with Greenspan's guidance set this up and the second Great Depression is just taking shape. It is up to you to relax and be prepared. There will be no staving this off, that is just reality!

At a bare minimum this mess has been 25 years in the making! Jindal continuing to blame it on The Democrats is asinine. That childish idiocy has to stop or we are screwed. President Obama says we will come back better than ever, stronger than before. I don't see it unless we are talking smaller and more stream lined but better. However bernanke saying 2010 could be a rebuilding year is also asinine! This second Greatest Depression is still just beginning and has yet to hit bottom.

We can do this but we must stop being unrealistic. This is far from the bottom and will get much worse! We can do this but it is unrealistic to think of us being better than before at least not the way many of us think of it! How bad can the housing market get? How bad will the economy get? How bad the credit market? How bad the domestic violence? The job market? With home values in the cellar and getting worse looking for city, county, State tax bases to hit critical lows causing all States to declare Bankruptcy and look for Bailouts. The right is trying to blame this on Democrats but it is their fault and we may get out of it but not in a year or two!

The rapidly failing economy will change Demographics! It's moving Quickly and daily!

Unbelievably I posed that thought 5/27/08! As you know it is getting worse every day and will get much worse. Knowing we are right now whether our so called leaders realize or admit it or not we are in the beginning of the Second Greatest Depression. As such I have done a series on our changing Demographics because of it and another series that the Great Depression had Hoovervilles and we will have tent cities. Many locales already set aside areas for them. Larger cities set aside parking lots as secure areas for those who find it necessary to live in their cars. I have done another series that many food kitchens have to close their doors as they are running out of food!

I have been thinking about much of this for years but at one time here in America it was thought of as Communistic or something to make peoplr live and work in the same town! However the time has come. I have written so many books, Pamphlets, Stories, Letters to Politicians, Media outlets, over the years I think I am ready to give up but it is happening!.With that said world wide chaos aside, this is all coming to a head societally and of late I have found myself wondering at what point can average Americans no longer afford to work? Or to have to relocate because of the price of oil and gas! Or the loss of their home? I hate to say it but I see some positive things coming out of all this.

I keep seeing stories of people hawking everything they own so they can keep ahead of the debt collectors. There are daily stories of people Hawking their gold teeth and Pawn shops doing an increasingly lucrative business. Our society was going the route of the Roman Empire which is normal in the cycle of life of a society. Bush has merely sped up that process along with everything else and now we must ddseal with it. Work place killings, murder suicides, and mass shootings and killings are increasing as societal conditions get increasingly tenuous.

I can remember after 9/11 when the idiots in charge stupidly said no one is going to change our way of life! in the same token I remember when oil first started skyrocketing and gas at the pump started climbing. People stupidly said they'll never curb my driving. Well! in both instances even a fool can tell you, you are only saying "Thank You Sir give me another" You are just asking for things to get worse. as a little child I learned shut up or put up period and most people are too naive to realize that as I said about any fool! At a time when gas prices were at an all-time high, Americans had curtailed their driving at a historic rate. The Department of Transportation said figures from last March showed the steepest decrease in driving ever recorded.

I highlighted that people are learning to compromise and some of you responded with your own adjustments. Today it is being felt deeper and moving rapidly! Jobs are being lost at an increasing rate, 3.6 million in the last year. Consumers are feeling worse about their personal finances and prospects - far worse than government statistics about the economy would indicate. Only a few years ago, Americans who considered themselves middle class were scrimping to pay for their kids' college education. Now, many of them are struggling to cover far more basic needs - gas and groceries.

One person said. "You can't be sure you know exactly where we are or where we're going. Consumers are afraid that the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train." That's exactly how Chris Ackerman feels. He said that he and his wife, who live just outside Seattle, find that their paychecks no longer cover their rent, student loans and daily living expenses. That is forcing the young couple to turn to their credit cards to make ends meet. They've already cut out much of their entertainment and trips to visit her family and friends 30 miles away. If gas and grocery prices continue to rise, Ackerman, who works for an importer, said he'll have to stop contributing to his 401(k) plan. He doesn't see many other options. "The worst part is looking to the future," said Ackerman, 25. "What if everything keeps getting worse. That's the scariest part. Is my grocery bill going to double again? What will we do?" Making a good living, but still feeling strapped

* Today I reiterate The compromises are just beginning and I hate to say it when this is done we will be better, stronger, and more serviceable and functional as a society but we have some changes to make.

** People have begun to evaluate their daily habits.Do I have to go out to eat? Do I need those trinkets? new clothes? Can I find a cheaper place to shop? A closer place? Do we need that vacation? Can we stay local? Aah Local now there is the key. There is our future. Go back to your roots. It is normal but most Americans are not use to compromise. Get use to it. When the price per gallon was sky rocketing I was wondering how much higher does the price of gas have to be before many people can no longer afford to work and would be forced to make a compromise that in the end may be better for them, society, and our communities? Think of your situation or maybe you don't want to but a AAA study showed it cost an estimated $850 per month to own a car. You can handle that at at $10 an hour if you lived with your parents, had a room mate, or cheap rent. $20 an hour would do it and give you a comfortable place to live and you could own a house and continue to drive to work if there was 2 making that money and you were lucky enough not to get caught by those teaser rate mortgage loans. What if you end up living in a tent?What it all boils down to is many people are screwed and if they are to make it we have to go back to the way society was in 1942 and we will be all the better for it though you may not like it!!

*** I see the necessity for people to maybe take a lesser paying job to stay local or just to eat and live who knows where! . If you are lucky I see a return to downtowns. A resurgence of local life. a return of local stores, local theaters, and local points of concern and interest. I see a return of public interest in their cities,more concern over what is happening there, more community involvement. Taking any job to get by! Live and work in the same area.I do not like what is happening but I see it bring many families and communities back together as only hard times can and sadly you see it every day. It will soon be not because of natural disasters but our own man made disasters. We will persevere! How do you feel today?

President Obama will help Al Gore, T Boone Pickens, and Sir Richard Branson solve our energy needs and rescue the environment!

I guess at this point you are realizing that I do focus on one subject! That subject is our successful move into the future, solving our future energy needs, securing our environment for the future, and everything in between. This morning I heard a discussion about T Boone Pickens and his plan to rescue our future. I had much going on and could not find the story when I had the time to discus it. Luckily I have written about it extensively but will just focus on T Boone Pickens, Sir Richard Branson, and Al Gore.

The last couple of years the afore mentioned Gentlemen have stepped forward with 10 point plans on how to solve our future energy needs and have volunteered big money to do it. This of course was during Bush's nightmare, I mean Bush's rain no Reign. We said nothing would get done unless the Government got behind it and got involved. Of course under Bush it did not and nothing got done.

With the advent of President Obama I now see something getting done here too! As you know, future energy resources and answers play an important role in President Obama's stimulus package and putting Americans back to work. Let me revisit Al Gore, T Boone Pickens, and Sir Richard Branson's 10 point plans and much more! I have to laugh! I wrote this a year ago and it applies 100% right this second:

In a nutshell while our Political idiots continue to nothing as they all accuse the other side of failure while once again refusing to come together and do the right thing for the Nation and the world. I am glad to see such influential people step up and try to resolve ours and the worlds energy needs while we still stand a chance at a future. Three influential people have now stepped forward with money and plans that at least give us a little hoper something we all drastically need today. Richard Branson was first almost 2 years ago when amongst other things he we heard this! Commenting on an announcement by Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group of a 10-year, three billion dollar commitment to renewable energy initiatives, Friends of the Earth's head of campaigns, Mike Childs, said:

"As one of the top business leaders it's welcome that Richard Branson has recognized the urgent need to tackle climate change. Whilst his investment in bio-fuels is welcome, this can only be a small part of the solution, and must not distract from the need to cut emissions. Biofuels can provide a greener alternative to oil based fuels, but this is only true if they are produced sustainably and don't interfere with food production and biodiversity protection. Richard's Branson's train business will be an important part of the future, encouraging people to take the train instead of flying, but the fast growth in air flights can not be maintained without causing climatic disaster. This is a 10 year $3 Billion commitment and Just one of Branson's proposals

Finally someone from our Nation that can help has also stepped forward with a doable 10 year plan! Al Gore Al Gore is challenging the United States to produce all of its electricity through wind power, solar power and other environmentally friendly sources within 10 years. Gore said the transition would not only help resolve America's current energy and economic problems, but would also improve U.S. national security by reducing dependence on foreign oil. VOA Correspondent Cindy Saine reports from Washington. Al Gore received a rock star welcome at an energy conference in Washington, where he issued a challenge to the country.

"So today I challenge our nation to commit to producing 100 percent of our electricity from renewable energy and truly clean, carbon-free sources within 10 years," he said. Called an alarmist by some critics, Gore has made global climate change his signature issue, and his efforts won him a Nobel Prize. He admitted that weaning Americans off fossil fuels would require placing a carbon tax on burning oil and coal, which his plan would offset with a reduction in payroll taxes. But Gore said soaring gasoline prices and the current economic turmoil have created a new political environment where Americans are hungry for change. "I do not remember a time in our country when so many things seem to be going so wrong simultaneously," he said. "Our economy is in terrible shape and getting worse, people are hurting. Gasoline prices are increasing dramatically and so are electricity rates. Jobs are being outsourced, home mortgages are in trouble. Banks, automobile companies, other institutions we depend upon are under growing pressure."

Gore called on all Americans to pull together, citing the kind of national effort that made it possible for Neil Armstrong to walk on the moon just eight years after former President John F. Kennedy issued that challenge. He said both presidential candidates, his fellow Democrat Barack Obama and the presumptive Republican nominee John McCain are way ahead of most politicians in the fight against global climate change. But Gore did criticize President Bush's proposal to resume offshore oil drilling as a way to address the current energy crisis. "It is only a truly dysfunctional system that would buy into the perverse logic that the short-term answer to high gasoline prices is drilling for oil 10 years from now in areas that should be protected," he said. al Gore's 10 year electricity challenge! Amen Al Gore

In response to this T Boone Pickens responded to Al Gore's Generational Challenge to Repower America speech, saying he and the former vice president "have two different objectives and our plans should be viewed with that in mind." Last week, the billionaire discussed the Pickens plan he hopes will reduce foreign oil imports by more than 30% in the next 5 to 10 years. In a release issued through BP Capital, Pickens said Gore "put forward a framework of a plan that is focused on global warming and climate issues. My plan is aimed squarely at breaking the stranglehold that foreign oil has on our country and the $700 billion annual impact it has on our economy. ... Vice President Gore's plan does not address this enormous problem.

In a speech on Thursday at a Washington energy conference, Gore called for the U.S. to produce all of its electricity from renewable energy and carbon-free sources within 10 years. Last week, Pickens unveiled a plan that involves using wind to supplant natural gas, which could then be used towards transportation. "It's time for us to take responsibility for the problem we've created and act now," Pickens said. "The Federal Government should provide the leadership to clear the way for action and private enterprise should build the infrastructure to get it done. Only in that way can we recapture our energy destiny. With T Boone's 10 year energy objective Pickens Says He And Gore Have Different Objectives

Remember the $25 million dollar virgin earth challenge? Gore, Branson $25 million virgin Earth Challenge an Awesome Idea That poses 3 important Questions.
As most know by now, Sir Richard Branson and Al Gore have set up a new global science and technology prize – The Virgin Earth Challenge - which will award $25 million to the individual or group who are able to demonstrate a commercially viable design which will remove at least 1 billion tons of atmospheric carbon dioxide per year for at least ten years without harmful effects. The removal must have long term effects and contribute materially to the stability of the Earth’s climate. It is the largest science and technology prize ever offered. Virgin earth plan

* We all know how one sided my way or nothing Partisan bickering resulting in absolutely nothing getting done is destroying us and the world. It is a breath of fresh air to see 3 distinguished fellows step forward with money and positive ideas. That they differ is a plus as we see from Politics there is no one idea but a melding of many will get us out of this. I am afraid we still have to hope our Governments will realize this and cooperate with "we the people" If we are to be saved it will come from us! With President Obama I now see cooperation to alleviate our dependence on oil and clean up our environment while putting Americans back to work!

Hillary tells China keep us funded, we will rise and fall together. I have banked on it for years you better too but not for the obvious reason!

Hillary Clinton Aims For China

Analysis: Clinton charm, candor scores in Asia

Clinton: China Must Continue to Invest in US Bonds

Clinton concludes Asia diplomatic mission

Clinton and Geithner to co-lead talks

I am very pleased at what Hillary said about our and China's future but first I must say I am very disappointed in Treasury Secretary Geithner. He is sadly lacking in confidence tact and communicative skills. Since China and the US are so intricately tied financially I guess it would be okay to keep him around when talking with China but keep him close to the vest like McCain did Palin during the campaign. I do not have faith that he is smart enough to engage brain before opening mouth. He is just too green and unseasoned publically!

During the Bush rain I mean reign when he was war mongering with every country possible in his endeavor for a Forever War it brought me much angst knowing Russia was partnering with the 118 non aligned Nation's, holding joint military exercises with China, and marshalling forces to take on Bush. Bush seemed to have had the entire world wanting to take us on militarily or to at least see us fail. I am afraid now they see if we go so do they. Anyway!

Knowing China has grown exponentially in every respect as a result of providing goods and services to the US it angered me thinking that we were responsible for China flourishing and when it came time they would turn on us and unite with Russia and the rest of the world to defeat us. I no longer am concerned about that. A couple years ago the parasitic relationship between China and the US really started dawning on me. I started thinking that if it came to war China would not side with Russia but would side with the US as we are China's bread and butter.

I tried to find out how much money we owe China and realizing we have $3 trillion in Stimulus Bills right now and much of that is being funded by China I realized it was impossible to tell! Whatever the monstrous amount is it is now obvious they will not jeopardize getting it back. I knew China and Russia were both feeling the pinch of Bush's created world financial crisis.

While at the World Economic Forum at Davos both countries spoke out that it was Bush's fault the world was now in crisis and their countries were hurting. It became obvious a couple weeks back as to how dependent China was on our well being when a report came out that China is increasingly concerned with a social uprising To date there are 20 million unemployed migrants in China

It really did my heart good hearing Hillary say that we need China! That they must continue to buy our debt and that we are truly going to rise and fall together. At this point China is the largest foreign owner of our debt. They finance Bush's extravagant spending spree. I use to be concerned they would stop funding us, call in the debt, or side with Russia against us. It has become obvious that they can not do that. We are inextricably intertwined. We have to at this point incur more debt to rescue our economy thus feeding theirs. If China is to recover we must recover first and It is good for both of us to keep this relationship together!

Reagan / Bush, Republican Legacy you are just Beginning to experience, insecurity!

Republican Legacy Bankrupting and destroying America, this is making us safer?
I have to no avail been trying to warn people for years to no avail and now it is too late! I saw a couple stories this morning that got me thinking! I was blown away seeing a story that Ari Fleischer said not finding WMD in Iraq changed Bush What the hell is that BS? Changed Bush! nothing changed he only got worse, more pig headed, and more determined to follow Reagan's legacy and finish Bankrupting America!

I started researching about Bush's history and I have written extensively on the bad joke that we are safer today because of Reagan and Bush. I am afraid you are learning the hard way how much of a lie that is and how safe we really are. I have been stunned from the get go that people even believe that Bush made us more secure… To start with, whether we allowed 9/11 to happen or not Pardon my confusion but do they even remember that the 9/11 happened while Bush was in the office? Bush's policies did not make us more secure, more isolated perhaps but definitely not more secure.He ensured an endless supply of so called terrorists ensuring that this fight too is just beginning.

Anyway knowing what is happening right now with the coming of the second Great Depression and that it is no surprise but a culmination of hard work by Ronald Reagan and George Bush my thought process once again began taking a longer twisted road Reagan, Bush, Legacy, Security, choking Debt, security? We are more secure? I am afraid you are just beginning to find out how "secure" you are! So I can get off on another tangent and finish this, this could be very long so I did a query of past stories on the subject and it was overwhelming!

Dow is at its lowest since 1997, this is long expected start worrying at Dow 7000!

Stocks extend slide!

When I finished working on this yesterday Dow was at its lowest in 6 years then during the night I hears it was now at its lowest point since 1997 and waking up I heard the 14th Bank this year just closed. I said this is long expected post Bush, at Dow 7,000 start worrying! Well it is coming quick, be prepared! Stocks extend slide

You know! I have been long concerned about the economy but I could never get anyone to take my warnings seriously. When Bush was first elected we were at Dow 10587! The Dow went down to the low 7000s. I was comfortable with that as except for the 9/11 crisis there were no serious problems with our economy. That was until Bush started gaming the economy and via Allen Greenspan lying and inflating the Dow and our economy!

When we went back up to Dow 9000 I started getting peeved and very concerned. it made no rhyme or reason and the economy and Dow kept going up inexplicably. It made no sense! It just kept climbing nonsensically! When it hit Dow 10000 I was flummoxed and nonplussed. I couldn't believe it and associates were getting angry at my angst. It was all part of the lie we are living today!

It kept skyrocketing! Dow 11000, Dow 12000, and I thought what the hell is wrong here. Greenspan kept saying everything was great and Greenspan kept screwing with the financial market and people who were not qualified and could not pay back a loan were given them. I thought this surely had to be the end. Nope it went to Dow 13000 and I was panicked when it went to Dow 14000. At that point I figured that was it and this house of cards was going to start crashing.

It went all the way to the sickening height of 14164! When it was at Dow 14000 I started to forecast that it would go back to Dow 10000 and then continue down from there. It was obvious Bush would continue lying and bailing out hid mess until he was out of office. The bailouts did nothing as expected but they continue and only get larger. People started ridiculing me saying are you telling me to get out of the stock market? It kept going up and down as it does and as was expected but some of us knew that when the lie we were calling a successful economy came to light we would be in serious trouble and it wouldn't continue down as it should!

I am sick of listening to the so called experts wonder what is going on saying no one expected this. Hell man there are no friggen surprises here. This was designed to come to fruition on the Democrats watch and it is! I keep hearing those on the right say it is Obama's fault. It is because he is the President, a Democrat. It is because he is President but not his doing. It was set to fall on Democrat's watch. He is just the unlucky or lucky President depending on how you look at it.

Yesterday we hit a six year low and I was lucky enough to have some friends over yesterday who were thanking me because they did pull out at Dow 10000! I said congratulations just keep an eye on it because it will continue to get much worse. Obama's Bailouts will put some to work and start rebuilding our failing infrastructure but in the long run it will do nothing but further the bankrupting of America!

Right now I am hearing we are flirting with the lows during the last bear market. At last check the Dow was at 7269 and at the title of this post I said you can start worrying when it his Dow 7000. This is starting to go down so fast it will be here before you know it. Despite President Obama's good intentions and heroic efforts I have for a while that it would progress downward from there. I am sorry to keep saying this is just beginning and once again we are bringing the entire world down with us. After yesterdays conversation involving the Muslim idea that the battle for End of Days would take place in and around the Swat valley and the Pakistan Afghanistan Border I am very concerned.

Remember! The New Deal did work during the Great Depression but it was WW2 that put an end to it! The fact that what is happening today bothers me because it is called the perfect storm. It is but it is the perfect manufactured storm. The economy is going south perfectly. I have been saying for years that the worsening economy is happening so needed soldiers would jump into the military to keep the war machine fed and they are!

It really bothers me that after this obvious set up and complicit behavior from both sides we keep hearing and I just heard that ass Pelosi say again that the American people are feeling a great deal of pain. No kidding, You the Politician's caused our pain. You continue to get on and blame Wall street but this is your fault. You are supposed to be overseeing Wall street! You are supposed to be our watch dogs our champions not Wall street! It is too late to make believe you are concerned now. Both sides of the aisle showed us they were not and even President Obama did not matter only the party's. Obama as you are seeing id on his own! The big thing to be concerned about is this is all just beginning!

We have walked right into what many Muslim's believe is the End of Days Battlefield!

With all my talk about Armageddon the Forever war and Pakistan Afghanistan being the front line this is frightening!

Pakistan Afghanistan front line one day further in preparation! First just glance at the links then you will put them all together in context once you read "The Taliban get their wish" This is frightening! Every non Muslim in the world better read this and pay heed!

Taliban has to be confronted and defeated: India

Pakistan rejects international concerns at Islamic laws Well!

The Taliban get their first wish Let me explain because this is even new to me!

Pak 'sharia' chief wants Islamic law for entire world

Hundreds protest Pakistan reporter killing

Pakistan: Cleric, Taliban leader discuss peace

Pakistan hopes to dilute extremism with near-extremism

US winks at Pak-Taliban deal

Seeking a new road from Afghanistan to the sea -- through Iran

Iran's hostility toward the Taliban predates Sept. 11: the Taliban's interpretation of Islam holds that the Shiite Muslims who dominate Iran are heretics, and an Iranian diplomat is among those being held by militants. Iranians are also concerned about the boom in opium poppy cultivation that has swept Afghanistan in the aftermath of the U.S. invasion."

* Hopefully you have read the stories at the above links and came to the conclusion yourself but we are in serious trouble as in my naivety I have hit the nail on the head more than a few times and have been right all along though ridiculed while this war against so called terrorism which I have said since 9/11 is like it or not a fight against all of Islam and nothing less than our survival is at stake. You at least looked at all the titles now I will sum up just one story that ties them all together and that is "The Taliban get their wish" As I never knew this and the entire world better friggen wake up because like it or not 9/11 was albeit a bad joke but just a joke as to what the future holds for us!

I had no idea when I mentioned yesterday that Pakistan and Afghanistan was the front line in this war against "Islamists" how right I was! finding this out just blows me away! I just found out that many Muslim's believe that what is modern day Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Iran, is the promised land from where they will secure victory in the end of days battle which ultimately will be fought in Palestine, Lebanon, and Syria. Knowing this now makes sense of all the events we have been discussing with Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and to my surprise Iran. I had no idea Iran and the Taliban are enemies. This is a relationship we better exploit and it sounds like we are!

What a surprise! The valley of Swat is right in the middle of this! With Petraeus trying to negotiate a supply line through there no wonder the Taliban are elated at their victory in securing the area as a stronghold under Sharia Law! The area in question is the Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP) and includes Islamabad! This is not good for our future! This is a huge defeat for us and a huge victory for the Pakistani Taliban and it bothers me that it was brokered by the Pakistani Government who are supposedly on our side. Pakistan has even brokered compensation packages for those who have been killed fighting the Government and Americans. This better wake you up!

As I discussed yesterday this pro Pakistan Taliban development happens at the exact same time as the first 3,000 soldiers of an additional 30,000 from America have started to arrive. This is not good and as I keep saying the battle lines are still just forming and this will go on for generations unless we capitulate!
This is a major defeat for the United States, NATO Pakistan, India, Karzai, indeed the entire world as hordes of trained fighters already swarmed from the Swat area and now that we are ramping up in Afghanistan Pakistan has capitulated. Please read the entire story. This is not good for our successful future! The Taliban get their first wish By Syed Saleem Shahzad

With recent developments on Pakistan Afghanistan Border the front line for generations to come is obvious!

US: Pakistan Deal Is a 'Negative Development'

NATO: Troop Surge in Afghanistan Will Help

The front lines are still just getting set
Allies alarmed by Pakistan deal with Taliban
I am alarmed that in the past I have heard that the Government vowed to stay out of certain areas because as far as we are led to believe it does supply a safe haven for extremists to gather and train and then head into Afghanistan to kill NATO troops and to topple the Afghan Government! We have not heard to much about this coming to fruition but now that one of the wildest areas,The Swat Valley has been turned over to Sharia Law a strict form of Islamic Law we can be very concerned. They are openly Taliban friendly! We are right to be concerned and as such there is

Pressure on NATO allies after Obama's Afghan boost

US will urge NATO countries to send more troops to Afghanistan>/a>

Italy says ready to boost forces in Afghanistan

Peace rally after Pakistan deal
NATO, India, the United States, and indeed the world are very concerned with the agreement for Islamic Sharia law in the once peaceful resort area of Swat! I heard yesterday that women en masse are fleeing the area fearing for their lives. I do not blame the women but I am not convinced that we should fear the worst because it is out of our hands but sounds promising to me because the leader of the Sharia movement guaranteed peace and was in the valley for a peaceful protest with 15,000 followers. I know I am naive but for now I have hope that they will fight to keep peace in the valley for their own sake. If not we are in serious trouble!

We could add a million troops and it would only be matched by the Taliban and other insurgents. They can and will more than match us fighter to fighter and this is their home turf. I used to say if we could secure the Afghan Pakistan Border we could then concentrate on the Taliban and rebuilding Afghanistan. However, knowing the territory and seeing the map there is no way in hell that is going to happen. I thought the Mexican border was violent and it is but the Pakistan Afghanistan Border is the most violent in the world today.

I have been long convinced Bush guaranteed a loss in Afghanistan and everywhere else when he insisted on attacking Iraq so he could help Israel create a new middle east order. I am afraid this is just taking shape and both sides, the Taliban and our so called allies are still just forming the front lines and gathering forces, Both sides are still just beginning to build and This is still just beginning! Afghanistan has never been defeated but that is not even my biggest concern. We have for generations been angering Muslims and certainly in the last 8 years done everything possible to ensure an endless supply martyrs wanting to give their life to kill infidels for Allah!

In with the old and out with the new with a new Medium!

In with the old and out with the new as Main Stream Media commits Hari Kari!
The Death of the News
As we have seen since the advent of George Bush the old tried system of honesty and doing the right thing for the people in every instance was replaced with biased hurray for me the hell with you self interest. It finally sank the self destructing Republicans and it is finally taking down the tried and true old school media as it is no longer true!

It is being replaced by the new internet and Blog reporting based on a search for the truth and getting it out to the people in a language they can understand and relate to as Thomas Paine did. I for one consider myself a modern day pamphleteer in the best tradition of Thomas Paine. Most of you know that Thomas Paine as well as the printing press played a big roll in our freedom in 1776. We are the printing press of the 21st century!

I must admit that prior to the advent of Bush the liar I did not pay any attention to where I got my news taking it for granted that it did not matter because I was brainwashed into thinking the truth would always be reported. Stupid me! It became obvious under Bush that lie or not the truth is whatever they want you to believe in order to follow their hidden agenda. That is world wide not in business and Politics.

As you all know if you want the "truth" from the right you go to Fox News and you hear their version of the truth so the right can follow their selfish agenda. If you want the truth from the left you go to CNN and get their version of the truth. It use to be you listen to the left you listen to the right and the truth was somewhere in the middle. Not today even under President Obama. If you want the unbiased truth you have to search it out yourself. If you are going to find it in the media at all you have to go overseas and even then you have to watch for Bias!

In steps the blogs our version of the 1776 printing press. If you want the unbiased truth today you will never hear it unless you go to the Blogosphere! Once again you have to beware of disinformation but an educate person can find the unbiased truth if they want! After watching the MSM making themselves obsolete with their Partisan lies reporting one selfish side of an issue or the other often controlled by the right to further their agenda while crying foul on the left accusing them of controlling the media I hear this crying from the Media and of course they have it wrong again!

After years of main stream news self destructing making themselves obsolete as an unbiased credible news source now they are waking up but it is too late. We have found other sources. We are the truth! Journalism as we know it is in crisis. Daily newspapers are going out of business at an unprecedented rate and the survivors are doing anything they can to remain viable short of being unbiased and credible!

All traditional media is in trouble, from magazines to network TV. But newspapers are the most threatened, newspapers stand for a vanishing era but the news channels are also going south. They don't get it! They are committing Hari Kari! Reading the story at the link above the reporter is concerned not so much with the death of the news paper but I am. I too enjoyed laying down on the bed or outside on the grass or the beach and perusing the paper. I will miss that but I will not miss the Biased reporting.

We can find the truth on line we do not need reporters who may be seasoned and know how to "pound the ground" but have betrayed their own industry, livelihood, and the American people and thus the entire country and the world! MSM's concern is that if newspapers die then reporting dies and we are parasitic. No need to blown your own horn! We would not even exist if their was unbiased honesty out there somewhere but there is not! Reporters need not cease to exist just learn to be unbiased! They are not doing objective reporting as they say! They are selectively reporting and swaying the story to benefit a selfish interest whether it is an obvious lie or not. They do not care but more and more average Americans do!

Supposedly there is no business model that makes online reporting financially viable. I beg to differ! Anyway, adapt, improvise, overcome! It is time to stop crying over spilled milk! After all they spilled it themselves and on purpose! I would be lying if I said I ever read or followed the Huffington Post as I search for truth on my own . They called what HP does as an 800 word scree based on their reporting. The idiots do not get it! They no longer have unbiased reporting talent. They have necessitated us turning to the internet writing our"800 word op eds" in an effort to get the truth out as to the lies they are printing!

But the story is more complicated than that. At the same time that newspapers are dying, blogging and "unofficial" types of journalism continue to expand, grow more sophisticated like All Voices. New technologies provide an infinitely more robust feed of raw data to the public, along with the accompanying range of filtering, interpreting and commenting mechanisms that the Internet excels in generating.

The writer wrongly goes on to say that As these developments expand, our knowledge of the world will become much less broad. They just don't friggen get it! Document-based reporting and academic-style research will increasingly replace face-to-face reporting, yeah who the hell cares as long as you are getting the unbiased truth that we never hear today! They fear their ideals of biased reporting will be replaced by opinionated reports. What the hell do they call the crap they are feeding us?

The final analysis seems to be a bunch of empty excuses to save their jobs. We will not lose human interaction. Many of us would fill those slots and do just as good a job for much less money and tell the truth as we have no other hidden agenda beyond honesty and let the chips fall where they may! Getting the truth out is what it is all about to us which makes their admission on the next page very interesting then read the end on page three! Next page: Yes, bloggers can be valuable reporters

The internet does have its drawbacks but we can and are adapting. We also have a lot of advantages being the printing press of the 21st century. We are getting the truth out in language average Americans can understand and by people they can relate to. Trying to figure out what the truth is about any given subject means reading about it from as many perspectives as possible and exponentially more perspectives are accessible is what makes us a powerful tool today. This is why we will be around for a long time unless Politicians and MSM that do not want the truth known as it endangers their biased livelihood succeed in shutting us down. .

One example of why we exist before I shut up! Just tell the truth! Look at this swill they keep printing! This crap coming from both party's but specifically the blatant divisive lies coming from thee right in the below report! GOP senators say Obama failing to deliver 'change' They will see to it and I hope the realizes they continue to be our biggest problem!

It is frigged up when the President's wishes do not even matter to his own party. Our two party system is the biggest threat in the world dwarfing even the Global economic crisis Bush started which tops our American spy agency list of threats!

We may have unity as India, Pakistan the US, the world realize their survival depends on it!

US warns of Pakistan security threat

Holbrooke: India, Pakistan, US face same threat

US Envoy Reaches Out to Iran in Afghan Visit

'Taliban a Common Threat to India, US and Pak'

I find it interesting or rather provocative that the Taliban has announced a 10-day ceasefire in Swat valley to facilitate the implementation of Shariah law in the region. It becomes more obvious every day that the Taliban is in charge not the Pakistani Government, the Afghan Government and certainly not us!

Afghans to join US-led review of war policy and tactics Gee what a unique idea asking a country what is best for them. How nice of us!

Afghanistan Is A Failed State, But Not Beyond Saving

Iraq is a failed State thanks to Bush Everything Bush interfered with has failed and yea Afghanistan is a failed State. At least as how we envision it as long as it differs from the one the Taliban wants. I am sick of saying in every regard today, This is just Beginning!

Germany appoints special Afghanistan envoy

Germany names special envoy for Pakistan

This is all well and good but it should have been done from day one with the Bush mis Administration instead of F U my way or the highway bullying and instigation resulting only in a furtherance of war. I am afraid at this point it is a day late and a dollar short. This is way beyond control!

Karzai says Afghans not in same mood as six years ago

No kidding, you think? You think they are any different from average peace loving Americans or anyone else in the world! Bush had the perfect opportunity to unite the entire world after the dissolution of the USSR instead he tried to divide and dominate it. He and his policies are solely responsible for the tenuous position we find ourselves in today! We are rapidly running out of time. Bush guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan first by the attack then enforced it by the needless attack on Iraq to get into the middle east to help Israel establish a new middle east order! He got away with bragging about the success of Iraq because of him and the surge but never mentioned Afghanistan was failing during the interim!

Now along with the disorder Bush created around the world and the financial crisis he created for America and the world Obama will also have to deal with the loss in Afghanistan that is now known as Obama's Vietnam! What a friggen future bush has created for us, Obama, and the world before he escaped to Crawford! The entire world better unify and quick!

The shit is going to hit the fan around the world and right here real quick as more lose their jobs and houses and there is no food. I guarantee martial law will be necessary President Obama or not. It seems like the entire world is facing that with the world wide economic collapse Greenspan engineered for Bush. We took the world down with the Great Depression and we are taking it down with this the second great Depression.

This will dwarf the Great Depression in length and breadth regardless of what the so called experts say about the conditions. With a global economy and a world population allowed to grow uncontrollably because of our prosperity we are in much more trouble! I have said it for years but there will be total chaos here and around the world regardless and Bush will be safe nowhere even in his escape in Paraguay. There will be no safe place for him! He thinks the world will vindicate him. I'll vindicate him!

President Obama looks ahead but now is time to look back first!

With the passing of his stimulus bill the work now begins but first a look back at the history we are following!
Investors Look to Obama Mortgage Plan

Obama Looks to Next Steps in Recovery Plan

Time for a timeout on programs

Stimulus Bill Rekindles New Deal Debate
The First 100 Days: Franklin Roosevelt Pioneered the 100-Day Concept

Use Stimulus Funds Wisely This makes me think of so many parallels! We keep hearing daily of comparisons to President Lincoln and now we keep hearing also comparisons to President Roosevelt in 1932! Being compared to two of the best in two of our most trying times makes me think that superstition works in threes. Also that President Obama constantly says no one wants to be President during good times and I do disagree with him.

However he is right that you want to be President during trying times as you can accomplish much! With the two Presidents he is most often compared too having proven that true I have to hope Obama proves things happen in threes and also succeeds. First though he must beat down the divisive disinformation Republican Juggernaut. Then there are so many comparisons to FDR and 1932 that President Obama would be wise to step back regroup and look at the lessons learned by President Roosevelt.

As usual there are two schools of thought and neither one is right in itself, the two are part of the whole"the new deal and WW2". Once again a meld of the two I am afraid is what worked to put an end to the Great Depression. The right wants to argue that the new deal did not work but stop the childish games, it did! President Obama rightly said he inherited the most dire economic crisis since the Great Depression and pundits of the right say that is bunk. I am sick of the damn political games. Make believe the country and the world matters not your party. This is no damn picnic!

In reality this is much worse because of the time in our and the planets life cycle this is occurring. Because of unprecedented food supplies and prosperity the worlds population has grown to bursting. In good times the prosperous of the planet were strapped and unable to feed the needy of the world. The poor are the first ones to feel the strain of economic stress and they are starving in greater numbers than ever and it will get much worse.

At the current time here in the United States millions have lost their homes and their jobs but as of yet are still able to eat though sometimes with help. It is up to Obama to learn the lessons of the Great Depression and do this right before we suffer like the worlds poor. What stinks is to succeed we must first fight the lying right and hope the masses realize once again they are the enemies to our successful move into the future!

First another reminder that it was the Republicans that were in power the last time we had a crisis like this and it was the Democrats that fixed it but enough of that! I keep hearing from the right the new deal did not work and that WW2 is what put an end to the Great Depression. That is only half true! W e know of course that President Obama is modeling his economic recovery plan after FDR's New Deal and I think he has the right idea putting Americans back to work and rebuilding our infrastructure that was allowed to fail under Bush.

The new Deal did work! Jobs climbed steadily until they relapsed in 1937. That was only normal. Just look at something you may not understand but can comprehend and that is the stock market. It may be obvious which way it is going to go but it ebbs and flows until it follows the direction it is going. The same with FDR's new deal and it will be the same with Obama's new deal. It is not going to right over night and it is not going to just get better without any corrections.

During the great depression there were ebbs and flows but the new deal did work, it did rebuild the country and it did put people back to work just like Obama's plan will pork and all if the right lets it. With that said, the other school of thought that WW2 is what got us out of the depression, yes it brought it to an absolute end and allowed us three decades of prosperity before we had a relapse in the 70s. This is a little more than a relapse. This is the second greatest depression and we have to hope President Obama is allowed to work his magic as I do not want to see this Republican mess too to have to depend on a war, WW3 to bring the worlds economic crisis to rest!!

The Stimulus Bill was a defeat for our form of Government, our Democracy, and our future!

Stimulus Passage called 'Major Milestone'

Five Top Fears (Other Than al Qaeda) of US Spy Agencies
The economic crisis around the world is on the top of their list but they better revise or we are all screwed. The two Party system is proving to be our biggest enemy. They better put Partisanship on the top of their list and do something about it or we and the entire world are screwed!

Obama Scores Early Victory of Historic Proportions

In reality The Stimulus Bill was a defeat for our form of Government, our Democracy, and our future!
Senate OKs $787 billion stimulus bill

Obama planning ambitious road ahead

Passing the Bill was no success! It was yet another failure for our form of Government and the future of America and average Americans. I understand when you add in the interest it is 1.2 trillion and we borrowed it from China, the EU, and other countries of course. I don't know if we should thank them or they should thank us. With them getting the most benefit from producing our goods thus putting their people to work and benefiting their economy I think us going bankrupt means they should thank us!

After watching the sorry display in the House and the Senate and seeing all the pork that was put into the bill along with the fact that despite President Obama's efforts to make passing the Bill Bipartisan it was a porky partisan fiasco! This is not the time to declare victory and take a road trip. It is time to out the fools in both party's! That was a disgusting display of making believe average Americans and our America was the focus and showing from beginning to end what I keep saying and that is that we do not matter.

It is all about the party's period! Short-Circuiting Bipartisanship Is Nothing New for Congress

I am sick to see that even President Obama does not matter! He better wake up and recognize that undeniable fact! He is going around the country telling people how much he cares and that he is going to do the right thing for them. He wants too and he thinks he will but Democrats are not on his side. They want to do the right thing for the party period. I have been sickened by Pelosi since she became speaker of the House. She talks a good game and then consistently folds her hand and declares victory for average Americans and our country. I am sick by her performance and refuse to believe she is still speaker of the House. Please write her and voice your disgust

With a third of that package going to tax cuts which in itself peeves me because if they really want money back in your hands screw the stupid worthless tax cuts and give the people cash they can spend on what they know they need to survive. A tax cut is worthless if you do not have a job a place to live or food to eat! Knowing school construction was cut, State funding was cut and VA needs to say the least this was no victory!

I will refrain from being graphic but after watching the total Partisanship and lack of concern for average Americans and our America and future Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid (let him know how you feel too! His email and Minority Leader John Boehner give him a piece of your mind too Anyway the three of them deserve the same treatment Mussolini got by Italian citizens after WW2!

This so called successful stimulus Bill will fail like all the rest as they are all about the 2 Party's and furthering them and their selfish interests not average Americans and theirs. As I keep saying this is just beginning and will dwarf the Great Depression in length and scope. If President Obama really wants to help average Americans and our and America's future he better get his enforcer Rahm Emanuel on the job before it is too late if it is not already!

At the expense of the country and our future the Republican goal is not Bipartisanship and seeing President Obama succeed for our future. Their goal is enforced Partisanship and seeing Obama fail for their future. Getting back in power is all they care about! President Obama better wake up and realize how critical it is that like it or not, we have Bipartisanship at this dire time. Normally I think you need a healthy dose of Partisanship to keep the ship we call America on course.
partisanship can be a good thing

However Not after the mess President Bush made of things. If we are too have any chance at a future both party's will be needed to join forces not to fight as they continue to do. The world seems to be largely cooperating with President Obama as they know how critical it is to cooperate after the mess Bush made of the world! Our own Politicians do not get it! They continue to play their childish games and it is President Obama and average Americans and the entire world who will pay for it when the Republicans succeed in painting President Obama as a failure! America, the world, and our future is in ICU and our condition is critical damn it! Unite our childish leaders to put America first or else!

With Global economic collapse now our Biggest threat, Russia having a role in the Missile Defense Shield is Huge, Huge!

With our new biggest threat being the Global economic crisis which may have at least one positive impact and that is to bring the world together after Bush's efforts to divide and conquer it!
Global Economy Top Threat to US, Spy Chief Says

Obama seen likely to hedge on missile defense

US says Russia could have role in missile shield in Europe

Polish-Russian relations "unblocked" says Poland's foreign minister Russia taking a step back wanting to talk and willing to compromise is Huge, Huge!

Poland wants enhanced military commitment from US

This is huge! I just went back over my years of writing on Bush using the missile shield to instigate his Forever war and this story from 7/5/07 pretty much sums up the dire situation Bush created with the missile defense shield and Putin's very doable Idea!

We have had an ongoing discussion of the missile defense system as events between Russia and Bush change step by step. There were many as events were moving ever rapidly towards the desired end of open confrontation. I said People must see by now what is happening hear and the way this to will end. I have heard many opinions varying from them being useless to the point that even if they had a 99% success ratio that against a limited attack it would ensure mutual destruction.

It is serving the purpose I thought which was to instigate future confrontation so Bush could progress with his new world order. I have been trying to get people to realize that Bush is following the 19th century Russian Doctrine of destruction where you must break down existing order before you can replace it with your new order. That means war!

Certainly everyone must see what has occurred around the world. Bush will not stop. Anyway, Putin did make another brilliant move but Bush will ignore it amidst threats that Russia will move its missiles to the Polish Chezh borders.An antiterrorism bond forged after the Sept. 11 attacks has been chipped at repeatedly. Disputes developed over the Iraq war, missile defense plans, the fate of democracy in Russia, NATO expansion to Russia's doorstep and sniping over what each side views as meddling in former Soviet republics. look at the list! I am sure we can go on and on and on but every single one of those problems is caused by little Georgie.

At a summit last month of world economic powers, Putin surprised Bush by proposing that the system instead use an old Soviet-era radar facility in Azerbaijan instead of the Czech and Polish sites. It is an idea that US officials do not want to reject outright. But they have concluded it would not work as a substitute, only perhaps as an early warning supplemental component. At the lobster summit Putin dropped a couple more surprises on Bush. He said flat out that he did not want the systems in Poland and Czechoslovakia but wanted them somewhere that was friendlier to Russia. That makes sense! He suggested that the missile defense systems be housed on Russian soil. Wow, that is provocative but that sounds vaguely familiar to me? Anyway Putin proposed transforming U.S. plans for an Eastern European missile shield into a broader system that would incorporate a radar system in southern Russia and bring more European nations into the decision-making process.

I think that is a great idea and once again puts Bush on the spot. My thought is that all along Putin has out played Bush in this Political gamesmanship as Putin points out that, that would put the relationship between our two countries on an entirely new level. Personally I like that idea and if it was wanted then it is possible. I have to ask why is Bush so insistent that the Czech Republic and Poland need to be an integral part of the system. The latest events: Russia's First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov says the term "Cold War" will be forgotten if the United States accepts his country's missile-defense plan for Europe. But Ivanov is also threatening to deploy Russian missiles near Poland if Washington rejects the Kremlin offer. VOA Moscow Correspondent Peter Fedynsky reports. You know damn well Bush will ignore it as he has to in order to instigate war and his new order.

Speaking to reporters in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said Russia will cancel plans to deploy missiles in its Kaliningrad enclave if the United States accepts a Kremlin plan for a European missile-defense system. The Russian Baltic enclave is surrounded by Poland and Lithuania, both NATO members. Ivanov's statement carries the implied threat of an arms race in response to an American plan to deploy missiles in Poland and a radar installation in the Czech Republic. The United States says the system would guard against a possible attack by Iran. Ivanov says his country's proposal is better for NATO than America's. I have to agree when Ivanov says that Russia together with the NATO allies can create a system that would defend not just some NATO members, but all of them. I you are interested just take a gander at the titles and see how quickly this was escalating. Rapid developments

I now see hope that President Obama can divert at least this one world crisis set up by Bush. The thawing of Bush's freeze is just starting but I see a future!
