Do or Die: GM and Chrysler are too big to fail! Oh contraire!

GM and Chrysler have failed to prove their case to President Obama and sadly we are hearing they are not too big to fail. Sounds like a threat to me! This is average America's industry, they better get it together. President Obama gave fired GM CEO Rick Wagoner and gave GM 60 days to restructure. There are more executives to come for sure. Chrysler only has a month to merge with Italian auto maker Fiat! That bothers me a bit as it weakens Chrysler's hand and strengthens Fiats. Seems like the White House is forcing a merger and we are hearing rumors of Bankruptcy if what Obama calls for is not done! This guy does not mess around!

President Obama really enjoys his authority and out of necessity does not use it sparingly. I do not agree with everything he has done but he has certainly been glowing in his stated fact that this is not a caretaker Presidency but one in the business of rebuilding our America destroyed by Bush! Gm and Chrysler have been put on notice and GM's CEO has been fired. My question is why was this not done in the finance Industry? Those that destroyed our economy were given a pass and in rewarded, in some cases promoted!

Looks to me that this President who wants to save our America the average American's America not Bush's will have his way if the auto industry plays their cards right and will save the auto industry. Yesterday President Obama correctly stated that the auto industry failure was a failure of leadership by the industry and our Politicians as was the failure of the finance Industry! My question is why have those in charge not been fired in the Finance industry? Our top Political leader that should have been watching both industries should also be fired. Why do we keep Political leaders who are failures To fail again?

* President Obama said the White House will appoint an auto recovery Director and he is Edward Montgomery!

* Restructuring will not mark the end of the auto Industry but a new Beginning, better and more competitive! The Government is not interested in running GM and Obama will not have wards of State. I do not know if that is good or bad anymore!

* It really sounded to me like President Obama was choosing who was going to make it and who was not when he said GM will rise again and he even named brands and guaranteed warranties. Hmmm? Chrysler he said was more critical and mentioned that Bankruptcy may be an option. He said the company would not divided into smaller companies and again guaranteed the warranties! He does not want bankruptcy feared and appeared to be trying to keep citizens on his side which is crucial! He said court action would be quick. I would like to know just how ha can guarantee that? In the past I was suspicious that there was finagling going on behind the scenes but Bush said we can not control the courts. We thought and now know that was a lie!

* Agreement by Chrysler and Fiat was reached with the help of the treasury just one hour after Obama's warnings!

** President Obama also said there will be an undetermined as of yet, tax credit for ever American car purchased this year from February on! Like you and I he said he wants the cars of the future built where they have always been. Right here in Detroit and the mid west. Again it just appeared to me that President Obama would be the one determining what the cars of the future would be except for Ford. WE are putting our entire future in the hands of Obama. It is as I am writing this appearing to me that if this all succeeds Obama will have or surpass the stature and legacy of FDR!

In the end President Obama pointed out that some jobs will not be saved and some plants will not reopen. Some brands will be lost and whole towns affect and some even lost but we will rebuild the industry and our America! GM will get their additional $13.4 Billion and it now appears Chrysler will get its additional $6 Billion. However the Government will oversee a leaner more competitive GM and Chrysler.

McCain and other Republicans say let them sink, it is a waste of money! They do not care if the Auto Industry critical to average Americans fail because they do not care about average Americans. They saved their finance industry that is critical to their version of America too and that is all that matters to them. The auto Industry Obama pointed out use to be the back bone of America. With manufacturing in general gone if we are to have a future again it seems like it will be directly because of Obama. With 100,000 auto industry retirees alone dependent on this working out not to speak of all Americans.

If we are to save our version of America success here too is critical! Republicans want our version gone and their new version ensured that is why they saved the finance industry and do not want to save the auto Industry crucial to average Americans. The blatant double standard hypocrisy just gets worse and worse every day. Listening to them wore thin under Bush under Obama it is only getting worse. It seems if we are to have a future we must first go through them!

* Last word: First I will say that after the firing of GM's CEO did get the attention of the Finance Industry executive's who are now worried. Now back to the auto Industry. Let those fail who will! So far we have given an estimated $12.3 trillion in Bailouts. We have gotten nothing for it but if it was given to the American people it would have paid off the mortgage of every single American! We are wasting money we do not have! I believe Chrysler is gone and those 100,000 retirees like average Americans are on their own. Necessary sacrifices to secure the larger good I am afraid! We will have Ford, Chrysler merges with Fiat, Gm will by natural order of things file for Bankruptcy. No problem! Obama guaranteed the warranties so not to worry! They will restructure and we can get on with surviving this mess that is still just beginning!

The Hypocrisy! Did you know that for 30 years the US has been growing and distributing Marijuana?

This is really hypocritical and outrageous especially with what is happening on the Mexican Border and with the fact that some one million people are arrested in the US every year for possession. WTF? Am I the only one that did not know the Government was growing and distributing marijuana to a select few while telling everyone else that could benefit from it to suffer. This is insane! Are they purposely doing this to feed their economy and agenda? In light of what has been happening on the Border and around the country I think it is time to take the Government to task on this!

The program was started 5/10/78 after President Jimmy Carter was forced by the courts to supply marijuana to a Glaucoma patient. What amazes me is that it only took the Government 6 days to send him his first shipment of 10 ounces of pre rolled marijuana cigarettes in a canister, that was some fast growing stuff. The Governments official line is that in one regard or the other marijuana poisons you even if their excuse is that it is a gateway drug leading to harder stuff.

Well, the list of patients the Government was poisoning grew to 34 before Daddy Bush shut the program down in in 1992. Those that were already enrolled in the program were allowed to continue until they died. Gee what a surprise, the Government controlled 34 users for thirty years with no negative side affects and they never mention that. There are still 4 of the original 34 left alive receiving 10 ounces of Government grown marijuana pre rolled in a canister every month. The rest of the MS, cancer, glaucoma, and myriad of other patients that may benefit from marijuana are merely left to suffer and or die. Why? Meanwhile while the Fed continues to supply the surviving 4 patients with marijuana they continue to raid legal growers of medicinal marijuana in California. The hypocrisy, why?

30 years of medical marijuana and Federal Hypocrisy

marijuana activist gets her supply from the Government

We know they do not but you want to say don't they ever think? They are purposely feeding the violence on the border they are supposedly very concerned about? If you buy marijuana in the US you are fueling the cartel drug wars in Mexico. Are they doing this on purpose? Last year there was 7,000 killed there. So far this year another 400 have been added to those Butchered, beheaded, murdered, for what? Juarez, New Mexico on the Border with El Paso, Texas is a battle zone. It is the hot spot in the cartel's fight for smuggling routes. The drug cartels and those officers and military not bought off by the cartels are in a full blown war

Of course there are big fears of our drug war that spilled South to Mexico now spilling back to our side of the Border as violence. The violence is only there and fed by our insatiable hunger for marijuana and other drugs. We can end this! We can control the border as we still are not and put our military on the border. That is where they should be not on 733 US bases around the world.

* I was stupefied, stunned, amazed, to find out the Government for thirty years has been growing, supplying, and distributing marijuana to a few whose life they know they are changing for the good maybe even saving while leaving the rest of the users that may benefit to their own demise! The unnecessary money spent, arrests, violence, murders, mayhem, here and in Mexico is asinine. It is all for naught. If not why? This is all hypocrisy! It makes no sense. The Government unbeknown to me already has 30 years of experience growing and distributing marijuana. Legalize it! Open their own proven program up for the good of the country!

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann calls for Revolution against Obama! Isn't there a law?

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann calls for Revolution against Obama! Isn't there a law?

Michele Bachmann Seeks ‘Armed and Dangerous’ Opposition to Cap-and ... Fighting words for Obama!

Hannity Aids And Abets Michele Bachmann's Unfounded Conspiracy ... This is scandalous, I refuse to believe that ass Hannity has not been fired!

Minnesotan Congresswoman turns treasonous over carbon tax

michele-bachmann draws ire and praise calling to route out anti Americans in Congress

This woman is in Congress and she is flat out treasonous. I refuse to believe that no one has stepped up to take legal action against her. This is McCarthyism to the nth degree. She is openly calling for a Revolution against President Obama! I caught part of Hard ball and this fool was saying she feels like a foreign correspondent, a reporter behind enemy lines. What the hell is that? Chris Mathews accurately described her as the Republican Mata Hari., The Mata Hari of Minnesota. That would almost be funny if this was not such a serious tenuous time for America. There must be a law against this!

She is starting Legislation so that no one can replace the dollar with a new currency. I must admit that I am hearing her say I feared in regard to Bush. Here we go again! The Fascist right are continuing what Bush practiced and accusing us of what they want to do.

She is right as many of you know, that Thomas Jefferson did say a little revolution once in a while is a good thing but not right now. She said we are at the point of Revolution and I agree! I use to say that because of Bush and now I see it but because of this financial, job, and housing disaster that is still just beginning. She wants a revolution against Obama. She is in Congress! There has to be a law against inciting revolution on this level. I can see it coming from the people but how can she be getting away with this when she is in the Government?

You know, I find myself agreeing with this wack job but it was all started by Bush and Republicans. She said we are on the road to economic Marxism. She is right but once again Bush set us on this road. At this point I think a little socialism is the only way out of this mess.

She said she wanted her State "Minnesota" armed and dangerous and later said she was speaking in metaphors but that is a lie!

She said Obama is anti American! Just how the hell does an anti American get elected President anyway? She wants Congress investigate for anti American activities. McCarthyism all over again mean cut the crap, if anyone should be investigated it should be Republicans who were killing our Constitution and destroyed our America to be replaced by Bush's version, this mess we are living in today!

She wants a revolution against Obama and that we will be bankrupt in 10 years. Bush did this and now Obama has got to spend to try and get us out of this. What other choice do we have? This woman is a wack job and besides, aren't we essentially bankrupt now?

* OMG what a friggen coincidence, she is another born again Christian who talks to God. God told her to go to law school and run for Congress. OMG! We have seen some pretty bad idiots coming out of the Republican party since Bush but this is getting downright dangerous and has to stop before it is too late! At CPAC she gave a shout out to Michael Steele saying "You Da Man, You Da Man. She is pretty screwed up if she thinks Steele is Da Man. Just what the hell is coming next with these fools? I shudder to think!

Trust me! Bend over!

Trust me! Bend over! Also threats that the Revolution is here! People are beginning to break!
US Jobless Rolls Increase to Record 5.56 Million

Tent cities pop up in small towns as well as big

Attack on banker's home sparks G20 security fears

Geithner's Market Rally Spells Taxpayer Ripoff -- Nothing for Us ...

Sacked French workers free 3M manager

Dozens march against police terror in Oakland

People are pissed, threatening AIG saying the Revolution has started

Where do I start? This morning I was listening to the news just for a minute while I got my coffee talking about the constant calls to "trust me" I remembered cringing every time Bush said that. You knew a screwing was coming. I never trusted him but you know what we got after 8 years of him saying "trust me" For 10 years we heard from executives on Wall Street that we know what we are doing "trust us" We are listening now to calls to "trust" President Obama.

We blindly followed Wall Street for ten years right over a cliff thinking they knew what they were doing. I knew they were screwing us but they took me over the cliff too. Congress has screwed us for years too. Now in our desperation we are blindly listening to President Obama and being led right over a bigger cliff. I was listening to the trillions being discussed and it sent me over the edge. The 3.5 trillion dollar Budget I heard would be closer to $4.4 trillion. In the out years it would balloon to $11 trillion, that is by 2015. That is unsustainable even today and people know it

I have been saying for years that we are in trouble! Trouble is now racing like a freight train to hit us in the face. People have had enough! Meanwhile the friggen Republicans will just not stop their idiocy while we as a country and the world are racing down the tube. I am just stupefied! Rove had the Balls to call Obama arrogant. WTF? How the hell can that arrogant scum even say that? KARL ROVE: Obama Points Back to the GOP's Future Rove is right about one thing, people are angry!

* If you can believe this, we are now being lectured by France. France? I am listening to Republican's again saying Obama is bankrupting America but as you know Bush the scum already did that. People are increasingly scared and starting to get angry. Republican's wanting a return to destructive Reaganism are again invoking Reagan saying he too had a mess and cleaned it up and they want to do the same thing. Wait a minute! First that was nothing compared to the mess Bush created for Obama and Second: It took him three years not not 6 months to fix.

Grassley called for a 3 year spending freeze to stop Obama which is the stupidest thing I ever heard. No it gets worse! Lastly I heard that Republicans are warning Obama not to do what they did under Bush! They are threatening to go nuclear if Congress changes the rules like they did to a simple majority of 51 votes to get things passed instead of the current 60. It has to be done or nothing will change. The games are just continuing as we go down the tubes and people are openly threatening violence and Revolution. This is just Beginning!

Legalize drugs control them like alcohol and end this!

Mexican Drug Cartel Violence Spills Over, Alarming US
Obama to beef up Mexico border policy
Clinton to spearhead anti-drugs drive in Mexico
Gun control debate hangs over US-Mexico violence
Commentary: Legalize drugs to stop violence

With our 100 year drug war and guns being purchased her and sent to Mexico then drugs being sent here feeding this drug war. This has not spilled over from Mexico it has spilled over from the US.

I reiterate: eastern California, southern Arizona and New Mexico are clamping down and National Guard troops are being requested! With 560 kidnapped this year Phoenix has become the kidnap capitol of the US!

You can guard the border from your computer

Mexico's Powerful Drug Cartels May Be Joining Forces With a reported 100,000 foot soldiers many of them trained military soldiers who have deserted to fight on the more lucrative side this is a formidable force! What about the Mexico mafia?

We keep hearing that Mexico's war on drugs is spilling over into the US. Now Congress is meeting about it. We are hearing of National Guard troops being called to help because Mexico's drug war has endangered Border States. Weapons are being purchased from gun dealers around the United States and being smuggled into Mexico to be used by the Drug cartels to fight Mexico's military in fighting Mexico's drug war. I have a few questions for our brain dead Politicians as they are once again in denial!

First I want to say when you work with the US you are taking on a lot of trouble. Anyway if I remember correctly our authorities have bragged for years that they are fighting a war against drugs!

war on drugs the price tag america can not afford a war on Drugs end it!

America's Own 100 Year Failed War on Drugs

We have been fighting a self professed war on Drugs for one hundred years! I wish someone would be able to figure out at what cost. It seems to me that the drug war has spilled over the Border with Mexico. However it went north to south. It is our drug war that has spilled into Mexico. It is us that have made Mexico the narco State it is. I do believe we should at least put American military on the border and do not really understand why it is not. That would go a long way in stopping the problem so I do not understand why they are not on the Border unless it is because a certain political interest still does not want the border secured to enable illegal immigration? Why else? A desire to keep this war going? For gain? of what?

I do believe we can end this! Put our National Guard on the Border in shifts! After I got out of the military I joined the reserves. I do not know how it works today because our troops are flat out. Besides one week end a month we use to be required to do 2 weeks as a unit somewhere to train. With 50 States they could all do their required 2 weeks on the border doing one thing or the other. The other half of the equation:

Legalize marijuana at least then if it works follow with the rest! That would kill much of the incentive for Cartels to be waging a war on drugs. Yes there is cocaine heroine and other drugs but marijuana is America's number one cash crop! That blew me away. According to official Government figures The value of the annual harvest exceeds that of corn, soybeans, or hay, the country's top three legal cash crops with an annual crop value of $35 Billion. There have been an estimated 100 million pot plants destroyed between 1981 and 2006 yet production has still increased 10 fold to 22 million pounds!

Legalize it, secure the border! Just imagine what it would be if it was legalized. Regulate it like alcohol, sell it in package stores! Tax it! Look at the potential revenue. Legalizing marijuana would end a hell of a lot of problems and create exactly zero! Think about it! The number one abused drug in the world is legal, Alcohol! It destroys numerous lives! What sane argument is there against legalization? None, none whatsoever! All we are doing with this insane war on drugs is driving people and not just kids to experiment and find a legal way to get high with common household products. We are only making the problem exponentially worse. END IT! LEGALIZE!

Do you realize how Revolutionary President Obama's 2nd Presidential address was?

I have been hear criticism that Obama ran on ending Iraq and that he has not done enough on that and I agree and he did not even mention it in his address. The wars are important to those of us with family and friends over there fighting and dying. Rebuilding the economy however is job one for Obama and I am afraid I have to agree as, if we totally collapse we are really screwed. Just think about it!

Obama's address was a picture of total confidence and control. A welcome change to the catastrophic train wreck that was George W. I loved it when the CNN reporter Ed Henry thought he was going to be a smart ass and goadingly asked President Obama a stupid question on A.I.G. He set himself up, this is Obama not Bush the idiot! He was stupid enough to ask why it took 2 days to come out and talk about the A.I.G. bonuses. Obama's answer was great and what I would have said myself. He said because I like to know what I am talking about first.

I love it! A president who not only knows the English language but he can think and talk. He is capable and does what I taught all my sons from day one and that is "engage brain before opening mouth" I loved it! All the other reporters laughed and I clapped for Obama. That idiot sat down and shut up. I thought the questioning was great but of course his detractors said the questions were suspiciously soft ball. I venture to say after seeing that from the outset Obama had set the tone for the rest of the questioning and the rest of the report's did "engage brain before opening mouth" Obama is no pushover!

Honesty and leadership I love it! Obama's philosophy of persistence is what got me through College which I was attending full time days while raising the kids working full time 3rd shift and in the Army Reserves. Engage brain before opening mouth, no cover ups, honesty, and frankness not obvious blatant lies. After 8 years of clandestine underhanded Dictatorship this is a breath of fresh air I tell you. A revolution!

This was interesting and no coincidence but Obama took only one question from a main stream newspaper! It is the floundering newspaper industry's own fault. Instead he goes to Bloggers and what was once considered secondary sources to get the unbiased unblemished truth out. Main stream media seems to no longer be capable of that as illustrated by the CNN reporter. This is Revolutionary I tell you!

I know the criticism and I have some myself that Obama in many instances is disappointing and not the change he ran on but in many instances he is exactly that! He was in control and damn smart as to who he asked what. I thought it was masterful! Ebony Magazine asked the race question as to how Obama felt in this situation as the first Black President. He aid their was justifiable pride during the inauguration but he only feels he is the President and it is time to fix the mess it took Bush 8 years to make and it was not going to happen over night!

He said despite his critics we must increase spending in order to cut costs and save in the long run. I happen to agree! Knowing that recession's and depressions are brought to an end with increased spending due to war as McCain had planned to do. I would much rather see Obama do it in Peace and not just because three of my four sons are in this. Greenspan destroyed this economy for Bush and it took time. Obama will fix it if given the chance but it will not be done over night.

Pardon the spelling but Mexico's Univisione asked of course what President Obama was going to do about the increasing violence in Mexico and its spilling over into the US. He said he was backing Mexico's President and sending money and supplies and that some Border States are using the National Guard to guard their border but he as of yet had no plans to militarize the border.

Stars and Stripes was picked for a question and being the military paper it asked about the increasing number of military homelessness and helping the increasing cases of PTSD. Both of course of which he addressed very well and positive in caring for those defending our country as Bush said he would and never did. I am hoping for action this time.

Only one MSM was picked on to ask a question and in response he said education which fell apart under Bush and finding alternative energy sources were essential to rebuilding our economy and of course I agree 100%. In the past he was criticized for being too doom and gloom. Of late he has been criticized for going on talk shows and making light of our situation but as was right he was somber direct matter of fact and concise. Man the times they are a changing in many regards. With only one question asked by MSM Obama recognizes the necessity to circumvent the Biased Main stream Media as they ask biased questions with blemished reporting. Like Republicans their ear and voice is needed but we can no longer afford to be controlled by their destructive complicit lies!

A.I.G. Bonuses - The Last Straw By Jerome Grossman, a coup d'état and nothing less, that is a sad fact!

I promised Jerome the relentless Liberal and his son Danny I would spread this around as much as possible as this is of the utmost importance to all of us. Please feel free to spread this to everyone possible! First Coup D'état: stroke of a State, the sudden forcible overthrow of a ruler or Government, sometimes with violence, by a small group of people already having some Political and or military authority!

Now: The national explosion of anger over the bonuses awarded to financial officers at American International Group indicates that the tipping point has been reached in the accumulated resentments on American financial inequality.. For generations, under both Republican and Democratic administrations, the income gap between the 95% of U.S. population lumped together as working class and middle class, and the 5% who earned $250,000 or more per year, has widened significantly. The 5% have more clout. They dominate U.S. politics, education, culture, taxation rules, charitable institutions, media, and business, acting as a kind of American nobility with benefits handed down from generation to generation.

Then comes a time when a relatively insignificant event captures the attention of the masses who begin to connect their anger at the current violation with the other half-remembered abuses. Then comes real change. Sometimes a popular leader emerges to dramatize the exploitation, like William Jennings Bryan, who galvanized the Democratic Party with “You shall not press down upon the brow of labor this crown of thorns. You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold,” dramatizing the economic ills plaguing farmers and industrial workers. He won the Democratic nomination twice although not the presidency. But he won many of his reforms, backed by an aroused citizenry, were adopted, including the income tax, popular election of senators, woman suffrage, popular knowledge of newspaper ownership etc.

Today Americans are worried that the bailout was designed for the benefit of those who created the crisis. They suspect that America has been taken over by a small class of connected insiders who use money to control elections, buy influence, systematically weaken financial regulation and get government money to bail them out when they get into trouble.

The A.I.G. bonuses remind the 95% of:

• The bailouts of the banks and bankers from their own mistakes
• The failure to bail-out the average citizen from unfair mortgages and job layoffs
• The bankers who gambled with depositor money at enormous risk to build bonuses for themselves
• The low tax rate paid by the wealthiest Americans on the top portion of their earnings now at 35%, once 91% under Eisenhower, 70% under Nixon, 50% under Reagan. What happened to the progressive tax based on ability to pay?

• The special tax rate for capital gains of 20% used by the wealthiest Americans

• The special tax breaks given to insiders as earmarks

• Some business executives maintain control by appointing their friends to boards of directors

• Some business executives vote themselves enormous salaries

• Some business executives vote themselves stock options, some of which are back-dated to take advantage of stock price increases

• Some business executives vote themselves enormous retirement packages not based on performance

• Some business executives discharge workers and speed up the rest of the work force to increase short term profits and stock prices

• Some business executives maintain headquarters outside the U.S.A. and shift corporate income from country to country to avoid taxes

Will the anger about A.I.G. bonuses subside? Or will an organization of citizens spring up to fight for their interests? Will another William Jennings Bryan denounce the current abuses and agitate for fairer wages and fairer division of the profits of our technological society? Will the current anger dissipate into the day-to-day problems of an economy in decline? Will the A.I.G. bonuses be the last straw?

People are peeved but as I keep saying, this was done on purpose and is still just beginning regardless of what anyone thinks!

Have you seen this? Liddy made AIG sound like an orphan begging in a soup line, hungry and sick from being left out in someone Else's financial weather. He conveniently forgot to mention that AIG had spent more than a decade systematically scheming to evade U.S. and international regulators, or that one of the causes of its "pneumonia" was making colossal, world-sinking $500 billion bets with money it didn't have, in a toxic and completely unregulated derivatives market.

Nor did anyone mention that when AIG finally got up from its seat at the Wall Street casino, broke and busted in the after dawn light, it owed money all over town — and that a huge chunk of your taxpayer dollars in this particular bailout scam will be going to pay off the other high rollers at its table. Or that this was a casino unique among all casinos, one where middle-class taxpayers cover the bets of billionaires.

People are pissed off about this financial crisis, and about this bailout, but they're not pissed off enough. The reality is that the worldwide economic meltdown and the bailout that followed were together a kind of revolution, a coup d'état. They cemented and formalized a political trend that has been snowballing for decades: the gradual takeover of the government by a small class of connected insiders, who used money to control elections, buy influence and systematically weaken financial regulations.

The crisis was the coup de grâce: Given virtually free rein over the economy, these same insiders first wrecked the financial world, then cunningly granted themselves nearly unlimited emergency powers to clean up their own mess. The Big Takeover

Did you know, There's a revolution going on!

The Beetles Revolution!

Americans plus bailout equal Revolution!

Protest launched in Washington to mark Iraq war anniversary

Despite President Obama's policy to withdraw most U.S. troops from Iraq by August 2010, Washington DC still witnessed another massive anti-war protest Saturday afternoon to mark the sixth anniversary of the Iraq war. However, the anti-war protest appeared less crowded than those that were staged in front of the White House in the past several years during the Bush administration.

As we know and rightly so, those troops that are drawn down will merely have to be added to the already increasing force in Afghanistan where they should have been in the first place.

AIG Bonuses were 218 million not 165 million as reported. Now I am even more outraged! I am friggen fed up! Yesterday I suggested a National Confession Day where the entire country has one day to tell truth and be free from retribution. Today I just want to hang them. I just can not take the lying anymore. They are pretty disturbed in A.G.I.'s home town of Hartford too!

Protesters visit AIG officials' lavish Conn. homes They thought they were angry before. I wish I could talk to those people now that the lie has gotten even deeper. Many of those protesting have lost jobs and are losing homes. It really bothers me that the protesters were not allowed near the homes. I wonder how they feel now that that 165 million stolen from hungry people is more like 218 million, 53 million more than they thought!

During Bush's mis Presidency many of us had enough and came to the conclusion that nothing would change period except for the worst as it is now under President Obama because of Bush's house of corruption he called leadership! We knew the people would have to wake up and get active! Congress,the government, nothing would change unless the people forced it. With President Obama appealing directly to the people all around the country in town hall meetings almost daily He is rallying the people to the cause of helping him help us. He is taking the cause to the people so they can force their politicians to do the right thing for them and not their party.

We matter again! This really is empowering! President Obama whether you realize it or not is leading an undeclared Revolution! We can make a difference today. Under Bush we did not matter and as he said, he would rather listen to his dog. Bush's insistence on no oversight is what top to bottom allowed this whole mess to happen.Just thinking about what is still coming to light with AGI, Fannie, Freddy, and the whole mess you have to wonder what the hell we are going to find out next and how bad this really is. I recommend you watch the bailout video by Ron Paul and do not get scared get mad!

Watch the bailout video and play the Bailout game. Get mad! If you call yourself an American, you will watch this and you will feel something stir deep within you. You will KNOW that now is the time to free yourselves of the chains of debt that enslave each and every one of us. This nation can be great again but it will take each and every one of us. Just as Paul Revere rode through the night warning of the impending British invasion, I warn you now. Stand up, prepare to fight for your rights as an American. The same rights that were recognized for each and every one of us by the Constitution of the United States of America. If you are a true American you will fight to restore the Constitution and the freedoms that our forefathers died fighting to give to each of us.
"Let us learn the truth and spread it as far and wide as our circumstances allow. For the truth is the greatest weapon we have." - Ron Paul

*** UPDATE *** OK, this is more serious than I previously thought. After you watch my video, PLEASE watch the video below and make sure it gets to EVERYONE you KNOW! The BAILOUT is a FRAUD to bailout FOREIGN BANKS and investors!!! Here's the link:

The bailout in under one minute!

Representatives that didn't vote for the bill were threatened with the prospect of MARTIAL LAW...

You know, like many of you I am way over already sick of MSM and Republicans jumping on Obama. Republicans because they will do anything to make him look stupid and to see him fail. Man Street Media because they are pissing me off. They just continue to use anything and everything for their gain. I am sick of this childishness. They are like irresponsible little kids looking to cause trouble! Like us they can thank God this is Obama and not Bush the idiot that can't even talk!

He is only 4 months into this! Give the friggen guy a break! In this 24/7 under a microscope crises environment that as part of his success friggen Bush purposely caused before he rode away proud of his disaster Obama is under constant scrutiny. I am surprised he can go to the bathroom in peace. Oh way a minute he probably can't. There will be more gaffe's just thank God this is Obama at the helm and not Bush the destroyer. It's okay! Thank god we have a President we can be proud of! Thank God we have a President we do not have to be ashamed of. A president we do not have to cringe waiting to hear what embarrassment is going to come out of his mouth next. Afraid every time he goes in public!

At least he is capable of thought. He can walk and talk and knows English. Regardless of your Politics you can thank God this is polished Obama not Bush in the rough! Yes Obama has made gaffes. Get off his friggen case. He has 24/7/365 crises created by Bush and he is under a world wide microscope. Give the guy a break! He will make more Gaffes but consider the source.

Remember when he had to explain that statement that hi white Grandmother acted lie a typical white person? Hey look this is Obama he's great, this isn't Bushie!

With Hillary he called her likable enough" during a debate, a comment that came off as smug. He also famously spoke about arugula, an upscale leafy green, in corn-fed Iowa. An exhausted candidate often found himself a bit lost. The guy has been flat out under the microscope already for years. It happens, give him a break! Also while in Iowa he said thank you Sioux City instead of Sioux Falls. Then when in Florida, how's it going Sunshine instead of Sunrise. Big deal the guy is a gift. Give the Guy a break!

Clinging to their guns and religion hung around his neck for a long time but eventually not MSM or the right but normal people forget, They have other worries like a job a place to live, food, survival period and they know we have our shining light trying to lead us out of the dark tunnel Bush has us in. We have had the worst now wee have the best. We have the right {resident at the right time once again, Give him a chance he will not disappoint!

A new Day has dawned with Iran! Good, uniting against the Taliban is job one!

A new Day has dawned with Iran! Good, uniting against the Taliban is job one!

Transcript of Obama's 600 word address to Iran

INSTANT VIEW: Reaction to Obama's "new beginning" offer to Iran

EU Has High Hopes for US Message to Iran

Obama's Nowruz message to Iran: What is he trying to achieve?

Iran plays down new Obama video message

TEXT-Iranian official's response to Obama appeal

Not long ago Russia said Obama signals are completely positive

Yesterday was Nowruz, Iranian New Year! I was happy to see that Obama was smart enough to recognize that and take the perfect opportunity to put out a video and went on line to declare directly to the Iranian people that a new day has dawned between Iran and the US. This instantly takes the fuel of hatred off the home fire Ahmadinejad has been building. If Ahmadinejad continues his counterproductive angry rhetoric it will turn the people further against him if he even matters now. Obama was smart to avoid mentioning Iran's nuclear program they concern a God given right.

After years of Bush trying to instigate war with Iran and failing because he could not create the excuse. Also Iran was the bigger Nation for whatever reason and used restraint where Bush would not. I wish Iran would drop their insistence that Obama diss Israel because that won't happen though Hillary has already changed the line of Israel can do no wrong. I do have hope primarily because Obama realizes he needs Iran's help to succeed against the Taliban.

This is good because Russia and Iran too is key to victory in Afghanistan! 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." In the past Iran has helped Afghanistan fight the Taliban as Afghanistan wants to be a friend of Iran as a neighbor which shares the same language and religion.

We better unite as a world and quick! 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!

If we are to have a victory Russia, India, Iran, indeed the entire so called civilized world is going to have to unite. This region throughout history has never been defeated militarily and will not now unless we all realize the future we want will not be unless as a whole we realize how critical the situation is and that united we stand divided we fall, one at a time!

Russia rearming because of NATO buildup, End it, ask them to join NATO!

Russia rearming because of NATO buildup, End it, ask them to join NATO!
Russia to modernize its forces in response to Nato moves

Medvedev Calls for Military Upgrade, Cites Threats to Russia

Kissinger Leads ‘Wise Men’ to Russia as Obama Seeks Better Ties

Obama may visit Russia in July: report

'US, NATO to work with Russia on issues of mutual interest'

NATO'S LAST CHANCE The West Should Invite Russia to Join NATO ...

Let Russia join NATO - Los Angeles Times

There is only one choice! end all this! Invite Russia to join NATO. This is not a new idea. Once upon a time, it was openly entertained in diplomatic circles East and West. In late 1991, the final days of the U.S.S.R Boris Yeltsin stunned a NATO meeting by sending a letter with this unilateral declaration: "Today we are raising a question of Russia's membership in NATO." Tom Friedman reported for the New York Times at the time, were "too taken aback ... to give any coherent response." In the ensuing years, as Yeltsin with characteristic bravura continued to raise the prospect, the West kept fumbling for a reply.

Even Putin, in his first days in the Kremlin, seized on the issue. Instead of taking the perfect opportunity to unite the world Reagan and at least the Bush's chose to make a worse enemy of Russia and widen the gap between the west and Russia by instigating them to war.We had the perfect opportunity to unite the world in peace and our past leaders chose to divide it further by trying to rule the world.

We must put an end to this desire to rearm to fight each other, threaten each other, dominate each other. World unity is the only way for a successful future. The Nobel prize winners must come together and bring to the forefront around the world the dire danger to us and the planet if we continue down the road of an unsurvivable world war! We must somehow convey to them that are respected around the world that the time is now and immediate.

We should be using our militaries for the sole purpose of helping and ensuring honesty among the Nations of the world. There can be no action taken without the knowledge and complicity of all Nations that have the future of man and the planet as their goal. We should be using our militaries not to wage war but to wage peace. Our military efforts after the tsunami were a shining example of the way our militaries should be used in the future. The world as a whole must be made to realize the fragility of our situation.

We can make this work despite the tenuous situation we have put ourselves in. With that said we must proceed and work as a world unit. It will not work as separate competitive entities as we have done in the past. We must Proceed into the future as one. We must proceed into the future with the future life of man and the planet as our only goal. Nothing less than the survival of man and the planet are at stake. Shortly the planets life sustaining ecosystems will no longer have the ability to sustain the current population of man. We can not afford to destroy them altogether as another war would do. It is imperative to me that we unite with Russia and I believe we can do that with President Obama!

Let Russia join NATO! * With the advent of President Obama We now have a chance at a future despite Bush's damage! America America God shed his grace on thee! Now crown they good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea! That includes the worlds people. All the seas all the oceans, the entire world. Our future is dependent on us coming together!

We are all interdependent. We are one like it or not. We are all, all life, part of the planet we call earth! We are all part of that one organism called earth! Under Bush we had the worst, the divider, the destroyer. Under Obama MLK's words now ring true "The Greatest among you shall be your servant" He is the guiding light we have been waiting for to lead us out of the dark tunnel Bush has us, the entire world in! This is not only Obama's time this is our time and Obama can lead the way if given the chance.

Obama has already made a difference in the middle east. The entire world is prepared to work with Obama the uniter! He can lead but the world must follow! It is up to all of us collectively! That means Russia! That means China! The alternative is further division! War Destruction! No future!

AAARRRGGGHHH!!! We must have a National Confession Day and start with a clean slate! I wish I had an easy button!

Obama suggested as you know that we press the restart Button with Russia so we can erase the contention of the last 8 years and start working with each other to take on the worlds problems together, It is essential that we come together if we are to successfully deal with so called terrorism and Islamists. We can not be ramping up to take each other on in the future. This is it! We are too far along in our cycle of life. Our weapons are too advanced. The planet is already a shambles. We must join forces and brains if we are to have any future at all. Forget the past! Start over and prepare for the future!

We must start over here too. This is beyond critical! As I said before, Obama is on his own! This really stinks to put it nicely. I am so fed up! They are all dirty covering up and lying. I was up again last night listening to the news channels and it was overwhelming. Theatrics, grandstanding, flat out lying, This has to stop! All these friggen idiots not just politicians better grow up. This has to stop!

Going through the various news shows once again I won't name names but every one of them, every commentator was making jokes at the obvious lying going on by both sides. This is not friggen funny! They are all lying. Barney Frank feigning indignation with A.I.G. is responsible for all of this as far as I am concerned. Frank and many Politicians received donations from A.I.G including a Senator named Obama. I heard Tucker Carlson saying Fannie Mae is much worse than A.I.G. Freddy too and those in Washington knew it was a scam 10 years ago! WTF?

I am listening right now to both party's sniping at the other, playing childish ignorant games as usual. This is not usual we are in serious trouble and these idiots keep lying and playing their games like the good old days. This has to stop and now. For 8 years I kept saying lying is the new truth. Say whatever you have to in order to get what you want. Regardless of the lie that was the truth! I have a fantastic doable idea first look at this crap. It has to stop!

* Fed to convert $1 trillion to treasury bonds and mortgage securities to drive down the value of the dollar. That doesn't sound good!

* Jobless report wasn't as bad as they thought. Only 645,000 joined the ranks of the unemployed so they were happy. Geezuz, that makes it 5.5 million now!

* In regard to the Government getting in the business of investing our money and becoming owners in essence I hear socialism is difficult and no one in the Government is capable of running a business. Hell we know that they can't even run a Government!

* The commenter's had a great laugh saying we have 535 Hugo Chavez's in the Government. That isn't friggen funny!

* Then I hear that even if we screw ourselves over some more and the stimulus works we could still end up with 20% inflation. Oh that sounds great!

* Indignant self righteous Barney Frank As Chairman of the Financial Service Committee in the US House of Representatives plays a crucial role in determining in what ways much of the bailout and stimulus money is spent. The committee over which he presides oversees the housing and banking sectors, two industries that are at the center of the current economic crisis. He is more guilty than most because he should have been overseeing all this crap and was playing up A.I.G Fanny and Freddy for years and like Obama and many Politicians at the same time getting money from them. Gee?

* I just heard the 90% tax on A.I.G. bonuses is going to happen. I think it should be 110% if they accept the bonus but Republicans call it a sham!

* Madoff's accountant for 20 years has been let out of jail on $2 million dollar bail! The good news just does not stop!

* I just heard that some Guantanamo prisoners might be released right here in the US because of Obama. I mean grow up! Cut the stupidity and scare tactics!

* This pissed me off! Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson retired former Colin Powell chief of staff said that because of Cheney assisting Al Qaeda another attack is very likely. We always knew him and Bush were creating more terrorists to keep this so called war on terror going but it amazed me to hear that Cheney was knowingly keeping innocent prisoners in Gitmo. From a 13 year old boy to a 90 year old man, out of the 25,000 prisoners at Abu Graib only about 500 were guilty. That will be great for us when the book comes out!

* It really peeved me finding out it was Chris Dodd who took limiting Bonuses out of the bailout Bill. Gee what a coincidence he got $123,000 from A.I.G. He should be thrown under the bus not Geithner as he was responsible for the loophole and he blamed it on the Obama Administration!

* A.I.G. CEO Liddy said Bernanke and the Federal Reserve knew about the knew about the A.I.G. bonuses for years because everything went through them!

* I can't take it any more. I am sick of the friggen lying. Enough of the lying already! I am listening to both party's right now belittling each other for not being honest. None of them are honest. They are all liars. They are all guilty as sin! I propose a National Confession Day! Not just Politicians but across the top to bottom. President Obama should announce this and give people a week to think about it and then with no repercussions total freedom from any legal action murder or not Fess up!

* Everyone has one day to come clean free from retribution and we can start over with a clean slate! This lying and childishness is not funny. This is just not right! No Government or country can operate and succeed this way on a good day forget about under these this still developing crises environment! Everyone is dirty and playing games! This is really sickening! Everyone knows everything yet admits to nothing. Everyone seems to be lying. Everyone is playing games while we just sink, they don't seem to care. Only they and the party matters.

** Everyone is guilty and claims innocence until found guilty. We can not afford to play this asinine game anymore. I am sick of feigned indignation at others by those who knew of the corruption often for years enabling it, did nothing and are now screaming "how Dare you" How dare they? I am sick of it, Sick of the lying, sick of the game playing, sick!! It was bad under Bush real bad but now with him gone the truth is coming out! It gets worse in a myriad of ways every day.

It is overwhelming, we are under attack! We need a National Repentance Day for everyone except Bush and Cheney who should be tried and convicted for setting the foundation for all this and much worse! Obama and Biden would be the only two exceptions. One day free to confess of anything and everything! If it comes out after you are toast! What do you think?

Cheney, Robert Gibbs, and A.I.G: Idiocy, Accuracy, and Audacity and then there's Grassley!

First I have to tell you I was giddy thinking over what Senator Grassley said because I agree with him. Of course now he is softening it but Grassley suggested A.I.G executives commit suicide

like many of you I am sure, I was disgusted listening to Cheney during his interview. I hate to even look at his snarling lying face! He said do not blame the economy on Bush because the whole world is in trouble. That ass! The whole world is in trouble because Bush with his insistence of no oversight did this and is once again bringing the entire world down!

That idiot also said He and Bush accomplished everything they wanted in Iraq. What? Cheney lied again and the interviewer did not say anything when he said their original goal in Iraq was to establish a Democracy and they succeeded in that. I think the hell Bush guaranteed for Iraq by attacking them will erupt as soon as the chance arrives! What the hell ever happened to WMD? I did a story years ago titled The 10 point Plan for attacking Iraq because 10 times they changed their reason for wanting to attack Iraq until they found one Congress fell for. We knew what they were doing but we do not matter!

In response to the idiocy Cheney was spewing at his interview I had to laugh because Robert Gibbs said it perfectly! At the White House press interview the following day the first thing out of Gibbs mouth was that Rush Limbaugh must have been busy so the Right wing Cabal pulled out Cheney for the interview. Cheney said Scooter Libby was unjustly accused and he was innocent. Yeah innocent my rear! If anything Scooter was innocent because he only did what Cheney said. Cheney was guilty!

It really bothered me but Cheney was defended by Buchannan who said it was in bad taste and inexcusable for the White House to bad mouth and joke about an ex vice President. The audacity, I am sick of it! What the hell did Cheney do and to a standing President? He said amongst other things that Obama is doing the wrong thing and endangering America. Who the hell cares what that lying piece of crap says anyway?

Now the A.I.G debacle! I just heard that it looks like we may not get the $170 Billion back that was given to A.I.G. because we were given the sorry excuse that they were "too big to fail" If it is too big to fail then it is too big period.Chop it up into a million pieces. Let them all start over compete and rebuild themselves to succeed and be competitive. If we had allowed A.I.G. to go Bankrupt instead of Bailing them out we could have stopped the outrageous bonuses. Congress's feigned outrage sounds like complicity to me.

What is happening at A.I.G. is the same thing as with the auto executives. Remember when the heads of the big three went to Washington with their hands out to pan handle Congress for multiple Billions and they flew in three separate private jets to cry poverty? Corporations in this country are use to Bush who set the example for mindless selfish idiocy right from the top! He set the example Politicians and corporations are following. Do what I say not what I do! I will continue to do what I want just give me what I want. I will lie and say whatever you want to hear.

* That time is over! A new day is dawned. Bush is gone but I am afraid we will never be able to forget him. His idiocy and damage will be around and getting worse for generations. It is really sick listening to the likes of Arie Fleischer and Dick Cheney saying Obama is endangering us and Bush did nothing wrong.

Barney Frank who I find very slimy to start with said giving money to A.I.G. is like giving awards for incompetence. Don't we do the same thing with Congress? Duh they allowed this to happen in the first place. Now this abuse! It is BS that A.I.G. needs the money anyway. Why do they need our money if they use multiple millions to splurge on joy trips? Also hundreds of millions just to give a few hundred employees who who will just go on their way afterward.Let them leave now. I just found out the White House knew Bout the A.I.G. Bonus plan back in 2008. Last Tuesday night Geithner warned Obama. Now Republicans are expressing outrage that Obama waited so long to express outrage when they knew since last year and during the transition never said a word. Sounds like another set set up to me! Republicans are making fun of Obama which is hypocritical but Obama should have expressed outrage on day one. They would have shut up the Republicans and gained a lot of converts to Obamanomics! I just heard too that 11 of the employees receiving large bonuses have already separated from A.I.G. Hush money I say Hush money!

Anyway, Big Corporations like main stream media and those on the right do not want Bush's gravy train to end. We can not afford it to run any more. It is over! Get it, it is over! I am hearing calls coming from Congress right now that those that receive the bonuses to return them because if not they will be taxed at 100%. I must say that it is about time Congress is going to do something right or I hope they do for once.Don't just say it send the damn message. IT"S OVER!

A. I. G. Prior Contractual obligations! Come on Uncle Sugar!

From Outrage to the Future: Learning From the AIG Bonuses The American people have not been fooled by AIG we have been fooled by the fools in the Government. What do you think that makes us?

SocGen defends payments from AIG

I refuse to believe that our taxpayer money was taken by AIG and given to European Banks. WTF is wrong with us? They took on bad debt it is up[ to their countries to help them out not us! SocGen was the biggest recipient at $11.9 billion, Deutsche Bank AG received $11.8 billion and the UK's Barclays Plc was paid $8.5 billion. Those are just the ones we know. It is sick when you know the vast majority is hidden from us whose money it is. I do not friggen get it!
AIG's Bailout and the Price of Doing Business

Having no control over our money using the excuse that you have little or no control when you are trying to save a large financial institution then let them fail or they play our game. We do not play theirs!

This really pisses me off! The Government has given away trillions of our dollars we do not even own most of which seems to have been pocketed and abused. Now they are going to tighten up finance laws because of the backlash? It is about friggen time but it sickens me that our Government while taking our money claims to be powerless to stop it from being absconded to enrich the guilty! If we do not have the power to control what they do with our money then put a damn to the flow until we do!

AIG is using the excuse of "prior" contractual obligations to justify paying obscene bonuses to the executives responsible for allowing the company to fail to the tune of $165 million to as high as $450 million! They sank the friggen company how key can those executives be? Hell the best thing would be to let them go to the competition then they can do for them what they did for AIG! So called leaders in the White House are venting their anger at AIG but is that anger real? If so just say no, It is our money! I am sick of us playing the fool.They and everyone else will have their hand out again!

3,500 hundred bonuses amounting to I hear as high as $450 million is sick! Valuable employees? prior negotiations before they tanked? Prior contracts? BS! Contracts are made to be broken break them and now if your concern is genuine! I am as I'm sure you are, sick of the sorry excuses. If you had financial problems you would tighten your belt curb your spending not continue spending like a drunken sailor!

* Remember I talk often about the total lie we are living today? This is another small part of the total lie we are living today! Remember! Those obscene bonuses were "supposedly" promised when McCain and Bush were going around daily playing up the economy! saying the economy was strong. Sounds like a plan to me. Think about it!

The Jon Stewart ass chewing of analyst Jim Cramer was more than well deserved and at this point legendary but I doubt if that lying enabling mouth piece will suffer any for what he did like the rest of the guilty! I can see that ass now screaming like an idiotic banshee saying if I was you I would buy Bear Stearns, the fundamentals are strong! Meanwhile Greenspan was setting this entire up that is just starting. We were set up! Or should I say you were because I am okay and have been warning for years now!

I keep hearing the McCain Obama statement about the economy being sound as being one and the same. During the campaign for President the idiot McCain stupidly said the Fundamentals of the economy were sound. We all knew they were not! McCain showed he was brain dead and simply wanted to continue the lie we were living under Bush! Obama's exact words were "If we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we’re going to get through this.”

* It is being made an issue on all the news station making something out of nothing so they can get an audience. Obama is being called a hypocrite now that he is President saying the exact same thing he accurately criticized McCain for. Look at the words people! He did not say The Fundamentals of the economy were sound. He said we are keeping focused on all the fundamentally sound aspects of our economy, all the outstanding companies, workers, all the innovation, and dynamism in this country, then we’re going to get through this. Sound Aspects, aspects, aspects!

In closing I want to say if our so called leaders really want to help the situation with AIG and the economy let it go! Let it sink! Chop it up into little pieces! Let them compete with each other and not feast on us and our wallets. If they are the best and the brightest their little companies will flourish and they will grow once again. That would be good for the economy. Superb actually! What do you think!

The truth about the Ronald Reagan who destroyed America and main Street and a Ronald Reagan (Jr.) I agree with!

You have to read this about Ronald Reagan the Destroyer of Main Street! I have been saying it for years and am finally happy to see someone of repute who is not calling him an American hero. He is the Father of this nightmare we are living and it is just beginning. You better be very concerned they want to return to the ways of Ronald Reagan.

They call themselves the party of Ronald Reagan! That scares the hell out of me because Reagan was the Father of the war mongering high Deficit compassionate Conservatives that gave Birth to much war present and future unless Obama can turn around the disaster they created around the world with their war mongering!

If only because I feel compelled to keep reminding the country of it Reagan also was the leader of the over spending "small Government" "fiscally Conservative" trio Reagan, Daddy Bush, and Bushie, who rang up 74% of our Nations debt choking our children's future while once again they want to blame Democrats for and Obama for worsening as he must in order to try and rescue us from the mess they have created and passionately want to continue!
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 plus. It is now moving so rapidly it makes your head spin. This article is awesome. Actually it is a book and it backs up 100% everything I keep repeating over the years. The book is a scathing, and well deserved, indictment of that "empty suit" Ronald Reagan, and his ultra-grasping political creed, "Reaganism," which directly led to the "Financial Meltdown of 2008. Reagan was nightmare leader and The President who destroyed main Street America

I frequently listen to Reagan's Republican son Michael Reagan and can't stand him! He is arrogant and I can not stand listening to his cynicism about President Obama and his and the Democrats wanting to destroy everything Ronald Reagan stood for. If that is true we can thank god and look forward to surviving as a viable successful America well into the future! I was very pleased as I once again was awake last night and I turned the TV on to CNN and was listening to D. L. Hughley interview Ronald Reagan Jr. Awesome! A Reagan I agree with!

There is no way on earth to eliminate or make up for the nightmare Ronald started! That said self admittedly Ronald Reagan Jr. said he is the lone voice, the lone Democrat, the voice in the wilderness that is today's America thanks to Reagan and his followers of Reaganism to finish off our version of America, the Bush's! Junior at least speaks with some sense and maybe he can start a groundswell but I know not in the Reagan family. As you can tell, I am no fan of Reagan's so I shied away from the name whenever I heard it mentioned. I had been out of the service a while when I went back in the Army reserves to help supplement my income because I was married with 3 kids working full time 3rd shift while going to school full time. It was the beginning of Reagan's presidency and his war mongering concerned the hell out of me so I got out after one hitch!

It was an absolute pleasure to hear the discussion with his son defending not Reagan and his nightmare policies but stem cell research! Wow! Reagan reiterated that with stem cell research you can turn stem cells into into pancreatic stem cells to make a new pancreas or anything else you need. Reagan mentioned something I found very intriguing and that was that with increased funding with Federal money it may be possible to some day have your very own personal repair kit. Just think about the implications! How the hell can anyone in their right mind be against that?

Mexico Narco State? By definition I'd say so but we created it and we can stop it!

Definition of narco-state - WordReference.com Dictionary Military involvement and Governmental corruption Hmm!

Narco-capitalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A thousand dead and rising: Mexico's drug war worsening

Mexico Hasn’t Lost Any Territory to Drug Cartels, Calderon Says Calderon said corrupt US authorities are aiding the drug trade! What?

Obama sees new policy on Mexico border security

US plans to combat Mexico drugs

US police nab guns bound for Mexico

Signed Wed. US legislation will stop Mexican truckers at the border

Mexico's drug war hits home eastern California, southern Arizona and New Mexico are clamping down and National Guard troops are being requested! With 560 kidnapped this year Phoenix has become the kidnap capitol of the US!

You can guard the border from your computer

Mexico's Powerful Drug Cartels May Be Joining Forces With a reported 100,000 foot soldiers many of them trained military soldiers who have deserted to fight on the more lucrative side this is a formidable force! What about the Mexico mafia?

We keep hearing that Mexico's war on drugs is spilling over into the US. Now Congress is meeting about it. We are hearing of National Guard troops being called to help because Mexico's drug war has endangered Border States. Weapons are being purchased from gun dealers around the United States and being smuggled into Mexico to be used by the Drug cartels to fight Mexico's military in fighting Mexico's drug war. I have a few questions for our brain dead Politicians as they are once again in denial!

First I want to say when you work with the US you are taking on a lot of trouble. Anyway if I remember correctly our authorities have bragged for years that they are fighting a war against drugs!

war on drugs the price tag

America's Own 100 Year Failed War on Drugs

We have been fighting a self professed war on Drugs for one hundred years! I wish someone would be able to figure out at what cost. It seems to me that the drug war has spilled over the Border with Mexico. However it went north to south. It is our drug war that has spilled into Mexico. It is us that have made Mexico the narco State it is. I do believe we should at least put American military on the border and do not really understand why it is not. That would go a long way in stopping the problem so I do not understand why they are not on the Border unless it is because a certain political interest still does not want the border secured to enable illegal immigration? Why else? A desire to keep this war going? For gain? of what?

I do believe we can end this! Put our National Guard on the Border in shifts! After I got out of the military I joined the reserves. I do not know how it works today because our troops are flat out. Besides one week end a month we use to be required to do 2 weeks as a unit somewhere to train. With 50 States they could all do their required 2 weeks on the border doing one thing or the other. The other half of the equation:

Legalize marijuana! That would kill much of the incentive for Cartels to be waging a war on drugs. Yes there is cocaine heroine and other drugs but marijuana is America's number one cash crop! That blew me away. According to official Government figures The value of the annual harvest exceeds that of corn, soybeans, or hay, the country's top three legal cash crops with an annual crop value of $35 Billion. There have been an estimated 100 million pot plants destroyed between 1081 and 2006 yet production has still increased 10 fold to 22 million pounds!

Legalize it, secure the border! Just imagine what it would be if it was legalized. Regulate it like alcohol, sell it in package stores! Tax it! Look at the potential revenue. Legalizing marijuana would end a hell of a lot of problems and create exactly zero! Think about it! The number one abused drug in the world is legal, Alcohol! It destroys numerous lives! What sane argument is there against legalization? None, none whatsoever!

MSNBC replaces Faux News: Fighting the Defenders of Bush's Ghost!

Bush revisionist Ari Fleischer battles Chris Matthews

I was flummoxed! Fleischer said Obama should thank Bush for attacking Iraq and only leaving him "a Mild Recession" Halloo! I am really glad I found this video on you tube because I couldn't believe what I was hearing! Myself I use to turn on CNN when I wanted to hear the latest and hopefully get some truth! I know I am slow but I catch on! Recently I have turned to MSNBC to hear the "truth" about what is happening and being discussed. I personally stopped watching Fox right after 9/1 as I realized they were lying and pushing Bush's war mongering society destroying agenda but if you were foolish enough to believe the lie that is Bush you turned to FOX and him and his lying BS is all they talked about and how great he was.

Like I said I know I am slow but I now find MSNBC to be my source more pointedly Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann! Last night was no exception! I should be use to this mindless BS by now but my jaw dropped as I was listening to the debate between Chris Matthews and Ari Shyster I mean Fleisher! Bush lied his way through being able to attack History ahh Iraq. He failed at everything he did and lied about it all riding into the sunset proud of his destruction saying History will vindicate him! The idiots who worked for Bush can not find jobs I am happy to say.

However it is sick that they have the time and audacity to lie about everything Bush did and have been working diligently to "rewrite History" First while I was listening to all this crap I heard something that we all thought to be true but I personally never heard of. Cheney's assassination squads! "Under President Bush’s authority, they had been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list executing them and leaving. Once again there was no oversight and these assassination squads answered only to Cheney and Bush! I wonder how many people they killed around the world to get out of their way? Remember Yasir Arafat, who died of a mysterious illness at a time when Cheney's office was talking about finding someone among the Palestinians to replace him. Oh man I'm telling you

Yeah, I'll rewrite History but back to MSNBC discussing the destruction of the destructive Republican Party! Keith Olbermann was discussing or should I say enjoying the turmoil in the Republican Party Hierarchy. He mentioned the "new face" of the Republican Party Michael Steele was already facing a vote of no confidence. My first thought was of his dissention with Rush Limbaugh and was wondering if it was being instigated by Limbaugh supporters but then I heard what I feared since McCain lost and that was that McCain was preparing to take over the Party in a Take Back America Campaign! Everything McCain says and does is calculated and I was afraid designed to keep him in contention for another run in 2012!

Once again I see him failing because of his obvious lying underhanded scummy tactics. It was obvious from the start that Michael Steele was woefully inadequate to head the Republican Party. The Right is saying Steele is not conservative enough. I could care less! The guy is obviously lost but swing to McCain? I thought the criticism of him was he was not conservative enough? These guys are really lost, confused, desperate, and searching! Limbaugh, Delay, every one of them ass holes just want exactly the opposite of what Obama and Democrats want whether it is right or wrong! They are all brain dead and yes I am going to say it, Unpatriotic!

As was proved at CPAC Conservative Political Action Conference by the 13 year old speaker Jonathan Krohn sadly they are creating the next generation of fascist elitist that call themselves conservatives. Jonathan Krohn at CPAC Republicans continue to be the Party of no ideas and no can do while saying they and Conservatism are great and already have the next generation groomed to follow and lead their destructive agenda!

Anyway then I listened to Olbermann say Limbaugh was the victim of a far left smear Campaign. What? That idiot is a victim of his own self. I taught all my sons from day one that you can be your own best friend or your own worst enemy. Limbaugh is his own worst enemy! That said it is being said that Newsweek and far left commentators from MSNBC are leading this "smear campaign" Smear Campaign, far left? That means they are caring unbiased citizens
speaking the truth! Olbermann went on to say there is a poll saying that 51% of Democrats after 9/11 wanted Bush to fail. I have to wonder why that is coming out now but as you all know, you can set a poll up to tell you whatever it is you want to see!

This really tickles me! Olbermann also said that MSNBC was behind a Defamation Campaign against Conservatism! That just means they speak the truth and the right doesn't like it! I have to tell you I hear nothing but truth coming from Olbermann and he always has the back up. He is enjoying making fun McCain, Oreilley, Limbaugh, Repuglican whining, two faced idiocy in general. That is only because he is speaking the truth and they are an easy target!MSNBC seems to have defeated Fox and replaced them as the station pushing the Republican Party only now the truth is being told and they do not like it!
