This country is undergoing a real racial conflict. Calm yourself, angry white people. You don't want to get hypertension and then have no health insurance to cover your drugs... I do not what to stereotype an entire race and I am not defending a policy, but I do believe that every human deserves a level of respect that certain white people are having trouble giving our President. You are losing the majority, get used to it. The only way you can stop the growth of the minority population is to out reproduce us. Mr. Manning is troubling because this shows that the problem is not just race. There is a class battle occurring at the same time.
Town Hall being disrupted buy some older, misinformed white folk.
In an emotional press conference this afternoon, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford admitted that he had been cheating on his wife with a woman in Argentina, where he had been secretly vacationing the past six days. Sanford, who announced he was resigning his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, repeatedly apologized to his wife and kids and to his staff, whom he admitted misleading about his whereabouts. The governor’s aides told reporters yesterday that Sanford was hiking the Appalachian Trail, when in fact he was in Buenos Aires. “I’ve been unfaithful to my wife, and I developed a relationship with what started as a dear dear friend from Argentina,” Sanford said, tearfully.
Sanford insisted the affair began “innocently” with casual emails and phone calls—the woman had apparently sought Sanford’s advice on her own marital troubles. But their relationship developed into something more about a year ago, the governor said. He said he had seen the woman three times since then and that he had spent the last five days in Argentina “crying.” The governor told reporters that his wife and family had been aware of his affair for about five months and that he had spoken to his father-in-law about it before he left for Buenos Aires last week. Asked if he and his wife are separated, Sanford seemed to struggle for an answer. “I guess in the formal sense we’re not,” he finally said. Sanford, who had been repeatedly mentioned as a 2012 GOP presidential contender, was asked if he would resign from the governor’s office. He didn’t answer. “I’ve let down a lot of people,” he said. “And that’s the bottom line.”
As you all know, we are in the worst recession since 1937. The situation is dire. Banks are trading for less than Starbucks. AOT has rushed here to save the financial system. Our plan will follow in the coming weeks. We are still hammering out most of the details. Let me assure you, this new plan is good. It's just not done yet. So we'll get back to you when it is done. In the meantime, please listen to our new song:
I want a million dollars You want a million dollars Let's spend a trillion dollars OH NO!
Pelosi, Reed and Barney Frank Love the Fed more than you and me George Bush and Henry Paulson spent all our currency The former head of the New York Fed is now in charge of the IRS Tim Geithner takes your taxes but he doesn't pay his own you don't need an RTC all you need is AOT
Peaceful Resolution Peaceful Revolution
a revolution without dancing is not a revolution worth having.
This ain't a bad bank it's a citi bank this aint a bad bank it's a shitty bank SRS SKF SSG QID SDS DXD I only make money, if someone loses money! ------------------------------------------------------------
We can only hope this will create a more open dialogue about what is really going on in the world economy.
"It is an old maxim and a very sound one, that he that dances should always pay the fiddler. Now, sir, in the present case, if any gentlemen, whose money is a burden to them, choose to lead off a dance, I am decidedly opposed to the people's money being used to pay the fiddler...all this to settle a question in which the people have no interest, and about which they care nothing. These capitalists generally act harmoniously, and in concert, to fleece the people, and now, that they have got into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel."
- Abraham Lincoln, January 11, 1837
Obama claims to value Lincoln's presidency, so why not pass this quote along to him? When will the people understand that we don't "have" to do anything about bad banks? Oh that is right, most of my generation is dumb, broke, or on drugs.
In what seems to be a blatant attempt to destroy what remains of market confidence, The Secretary of the Treasury announced his "plan" to save/destroy the financial sector. The bad news, he barely said anything. They did make a website, financialstability.gov. This man didn't even pay his taxes and we expect him to be able to run the IRS and save the banking system. I can only hope that the people really pulling the strings in the Illuminati and Skull and Bones know what they are doing.
"FEMA food kits may contain tainted peanut butter"

After how well they have done so far, I don't think I want to go to a camp if they are going to give me food tainted with salmonella.
post post I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands one nation, under god, with liberty and justice for all.
As I sit here and read the newspapers and watch and listen to what has happened to our country I can't help but wonder:
"what it is going to take for America to get angry"
we are loosing our liberty's and our way of life to "Terrorism" and the financial crisis. America is too complacent What doesn't effect me doesn't matter. It is interesting the few people who put us in this situation and made a bad decision are getting paid 40,000,000,000 Billion In Bonuses. What is going on? How can American Tax Payer Money(700,000,000,000) Paid to the fed Go to People who made a bad decision and can't run a business in the first place. Now we need to spend 1 trillion 1,000,000,000,000 to payback everyone who got them into power. I'm sorry not 1 trillion 8755,000,000,000 the interest in this loan we are putting on our children's children is 325,000,000,000
According to a Bloom berg analysis incorporating data from the Treasury Department and Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) and interviews with regulatory officials and others:
$300 billion has been spent on Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, American International Group Inc. (AIG) and Bear Stearns Cos. (now part of JP Morgan Chase & Co. (JPM).*
$300 billion on Citigroup.* $700 billion on TARP but that didn't happen* $800 billion on Fed-directed asset-backed debt-purchase programs.* $1.4 trillion on FDIC bank guarantees.* $2.3 trillion on Fed commercial paper programs.* And $2.2 trillion on other Fed lending and government commitments.
That totals a little bit more than $8.5 trillion, according to TreasuryDirect.gov, total U.S. public debt stood at
$10,620,397,126,433.54 ($10.62 trillion) - and counting.
The problem with a huge deficit and printing money to pay for “troubled assets” - is inflation.
If there’s more money in the system and there are fewer goods and services being produced, when the demand for those goods and services inevitably returns, the prices go up dramatically.. This is only the beginning!!! This is a interesting video on printing money http://www.glenbeck.com/content/articles/198/20816
If the government wants to get us out of the is Crisis we need to GIVE THE MONEY BACK TO THE PEOPLE. Only the people are going to get us out of this our government got us into this mess. Let the people keep the money they make!! I don't want a $600.00 Check I want the money for the time I traded to provide a product or service. I can't get that time back so I should be compensated for it.
1 year with out income and corporate taxes and we would have more money to buy the things we need, hire employees and get American businesses hiring again. Being a small business owner the amount of taxes we have to pay is puting people out of business. Is that good for the economy? business are shutting down because of the tax burden. No wonder big companies are laying off people?
The small businesses are the the main employer of America not unions!!! The hole thing makes me sick. The American people need to wake up!!!
Show me you are an american: If you can vote you can call or e-mail if you didn't vote you can call or e-mail and help hold them acountable On your right is a way to contact your senators (they think you work for them) Let them Hear your voice. let Them know that they work for you and they will be held solely responsible for what they do
IF YOU WANT MY VOTE YOU WILL(me)
1. Lower the taxes for the people who pay them such as Small Businesses and Through the people who got us into this mess into jail for a long time!!! what ever your opinion is let them know!!
If we organize, We The People Can Make Washington Change not the presedent
Bush pardoned 2 Border agents because a lot of people called an e-mailed on the last day and it worked. These People only care about 1 thing and that is having that power and we have to take the power to let them know if they want to keep working for us they will have to listen to us or we will make sure they are not in that seat in the next congressional election.
I will try to stay up to date on the most important issues and I want to hear what you have to say about what is going on and what I have to say. This is your country and your money!!!
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs."
