GM's Opel Division To Be Divided Between U.S. and Russian Governments.

From an Article in RioNovosti, a Russian online News Source, the Former Privately Owned GM division of Opel will be split mainly between the United States Government and Russian Government.

The Division will be as Follows: The United States Government Run GM will own 35%, with the Russian Government run Bank Sberbank and Russian Car Maker GAZ taking another 35%. The Canadian/Austrian company Magna will get 20% and the remaining 10% is to be given to the Opel Workers.

These little known facts are being left out of most Western News Agency Reports in an effort to make it appear that the Canadian/Austrian company Magna was essentially buying Up Opel. But according to the News coming out of Moscow, that is not the Case.

This is just another example of the Propaganda being Fed the United States Citizens in hope that they continue to ignore the Unconstitutional acts by the Administration in Seizing Private Businesses in order to Divide them up among anyone whom the President Chooses.

I find it rather Symbolic that the Capitalist Created GM Division of Opel is being Divided between the Former Communist Soviet Union and the New Emerging Marxist State of the U.S.

All this under the Guise of "Saving" Jobs. But While the U.S. Government is Busy "Saving" Jobs....

Who is "Saving" Liberty?

UPDATE 6/1/09 Tea Party Blogger Received Visit From FBI for Exercising His Freedom of Speech

Steve Shirk , An Atlanta Tea Party Protester and Blogger, was visited by an FBI Agent from the Joint Terrorism Task Force in April.

It appears that Mr. Shirk has started a Letter writing Campaign that got the attention of one Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Senator Whitehouse received a Letter from Mr. Shirk complaining about the Outrageous, Out of Control Government Spending and the Unconstitutional Take Over of Private Business. This Letter was enough to alarm the Senator to the Point that he Turned it over to the FBI, complaining that Mr. Shirk could be a possible "Domestic Terrorist", Hence Mr. Shirk's Visit by the FBI.

According to Mr. Shirk's Blog, this is how the "Visit" Proceeded:

"The FBI agent was very polite and respectful. He explained why I had been targeted and by whom, Senator Whitehouse, and assured me that this would be the end of it. I explained to him in answer to his questions what and why I had written. He agreed that I have the constitutional right to express my dissatisfaction with government policy. The last thing he said to me was to advise that I keep expressing my opinions."

It appears that there are many in the Government that are sympathetic to Tea Parties and the Cause. For the FBI Agent to encourage Mr. Shirk to "keep Expressing his Opinions" follows a pattern I see from these Sympathetic Patriots in the Government. The 3 Reports that Home Land Security wrote calling Tea Partiers, Anti-Abortionists, Defenders of the Constitution and other "Conservative" type Americans "Domestic Terrorists" were supposed to be kept Secret. But in each instance, someone in the Government "Leaked" each report to the Media so that this Fascist type "Hit List" would be exposed.

But what Mr. Shirk's experience and other's around the Nation are showing, is that these "Domestic Terrorist" reports are being used, despite Home Land Security's insistence that they were somehow written by "Mistake" and have not been Circulated.

Just a few weeks ago, a Man in Louisiana was detained by Police for a Half an hour because he had a "Don't Tread on Me" decal on his car. After a Back Ground Check for any links to "Extremist Groups", he was released with a warning about how his Decal was "Subversive" and "Dangerous."

If we add up these accounts of Dissenting Citizens receiving "Visits" or being "Detained" with the Administrations lack of Fear in "Threatening" Private Business that get in the Way of their Agenda, we can see that these are not Random Acts by Rouge Representatives of the Government, but an Actual Intimidation Campaign by a Federal Government that is Out of Control.

Or as many of My Readers know.....We Call it TYRANNY.

I do have the Link to Mr. Shirks Blog, but I am waiting to get his permission to post it, since I do not wish to Cause a Fellow Patriot any more Trouble than he has already received. I will update this post as soon as I hear from him.

UPDATE 6/1/09

Mr. Shirk has notified me and has given me permission to link to his Blog Directly.

Here is the Link to read the Events in his own Words:

Marine Gets Persecuted for Marine Corps Decals on Car

In Dallas Texas a Disabled Marine (Once a Marine, Always a Marine), is being told that he must remove his Marine Corps Decals by his Neighborhood Association.

According to Channel 4 Fox in Houston, Frank Larison, a Disabled Vet and "Former" Marine, has seven Marine Corps Decals on his Car. According to the Homeowners Association (HOA) , no Cars or homes are allowed to have advertisements of any kind. They consider the Marine Corps Decals an advertisement.

Fox 4 said that the Problem with this Argument is that:

"FOX 4 cameras spotted bumper stickers for political parties, health causes, and other non-commercial interests on the property as well."

So it appears that other residents have Bumper Stickers on their Cars but Mr. Larison is the only one threatened with fines and a possible towing of the "Offending" Vehicle.

Sotormayor Ruled Against Free Speech in a Blogging Case

The President's pick for the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor, in a Past Case between a School in Connecticut and the Free Speech Rights of Student a Blogger, ruled against the Student and Her exercise of the 1st Amendment. The First Amendment as worded in the Constitution says:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The case that Sotomayor ruled in, involved a Student who wished to run for Student Council, but was banned from doing so because the Student, on her own and time and on her Own Computer, posted on Her Blog that the superintendent and other officials were "douche bags" because they canceled a battle of the bands event that she had helped organize.

The Student's Mother challenged the ruling saying that the School violated her Daughter's Right to Free Speech, because she never said it on School Property or to the Individuals themselves but on the Internet from her own House and on her own time.

In March 2008, the case went to Court where Sotomayor sat on a panel that heard the Appeal claiming the violation of the Student's Constitutional Rights. Sotomayer, along with 2 other Judges, ruled against the Student Claiming that the Blog Posting created a:

“foreseeable risk of substantial disruption” at the student’s high school and that the teenager was not entitled to a preliminary injunction reversing a disciplinary action against her"

In Plain English, the fact that the Student Challenged the Authority of the School, might cause a "Disruption" in the Authority of the School and it's ability to dole out Punishment. The Fact that the School was Violating her Constitutional Rights for Punishing her for writing something Off-campus doesn't apply.

Or what they Really wanted to say was: DON' T QUESTION AUTHORITY!! YOU HAVE NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!

I think a Quote from an Article published on Connecticut's NBC Website Says it all:

“The continual expansion of the authority of school officials over student speech teaches a foul lesson to these future citizens,” Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, told the New Britain Herald. “I would prefer some obnoxious speech [rather] than teaching students that they must please government officials if they want special benefits or opportunities.”

Pelosi Dismisses Citizen's Right to Privacy for Government's Right to Inventory "Every aspect of our lives"

Nancy Pelosi, in China on a "Climate Change" Tour, said that a Safe Environment is a Human Right that Demands:

"Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory ... of how we are taking responsibility."

This Attitude completely Explains the Reason for the Over Reaching and Unconstitutional 2009 Annual Census Survey. This Survey asks about Everything in your life from If you have Trouble putting on pants to What House you own, the type of Fuel it uses (Gas, Electric), How Much Energy you use by asking what your Energy Bills Cost every month, what kind of Car you Drive, How Far you Drive and How many People are riding in Your Car to Work. If you refuse to complete this survey you could be fined up to $5,000. For Inaccurate Information you could be fined up to $500.

To Read My blog Posting on the Unconstitutional Survey Go Here:

http://poedpatriot.blogspot.com/2009/05/census-questionnaire-goes-beyond.html

If Pelosi's Attitude becomes National Policy (as if it already hasn't) then we can all expect to receive these Unconstitutional Surveys so that the Government can decide if we are living a "Green" lifestyle. And this Attitude will allow the Government to access your Energy use though the "Smart Grid" that is being built by GE and the Federal Government and punish you accordingly with Higher Rates or restricting your Energy use.

The Problem with this Attitude and this Survey is that in the Constitution under the 4th Amendment, the Government does not have the Right to Seize your Personal Information (Papers) without a Warrant. Here is the 4th Amendment as it is written in the Constitution:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

This pesky "Constitution" keeps getting in the Way of the Progressives in this Country. That is why you always here the Argument that the Constitution and the Founders are "Old" and "Outdated" and that the Constitution just needs to be "Changed" to allow things like National Health care and other "Collective" Legislation to be Constitutional. They want to Change the Constitution so that it Protects "Collective Rights" instead of the "Individual and State Rights" that it was written to Protect.

So unless Nancy Pelosi and Congress makes living a Non-"Green" lifestyle Illegal so that they can then issue a Warrant to Seize your Personal Information to see on how You are 'Taking responsibility" for the Environment...then she is SOL.

But that won't stop the Federal Government from stepping all over the Constitution, since they are already doing it by taking over GM, Chrysler and the Financial Sector.

But what Congress Should realize is that the 2nd Amendment was placed in the Constitution because the Founders Knew Some Day that the Government would Stop Doing the Will of the People...

and Force the People to do the Will of the Government.

Census Questionnaire Goes Beyond Constitutional Bounds

The 2009 American Community Survey is a Yearly supplement to the Census every 10 Years and supposedly is randomly sent to Households across the United States. The Problem is the Survey is Unconstitutional in the fact that it asks specific, personal information that has nothing to do with the Counting of people in the Household.

According to the Constitution, the Census was a tool that would allow the proper number of Representatives in the House for each State depending on their population. The Exact Words from the Constitution are as Follows:

"Representation and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers ... . The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct."

-- Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States

There is nothing in this Article that allows the Government to ask How Many Bathrooms you have or if You have Trouble getting Dressed. That's Right, the Supplemental Census Survey even goes so far as to ask Where You Work, how Much You Make, what Kind of Car You Drive, and how Far You Commute. It Even asks if Your Kids are Adopted and If they Go To Private School or Public. Does your Toilet Flush, What Type of Dwelling you Live in, the Year it was Built, the Type of Fuel your Furnace uses, Cost of Water, Sewage, Electricity, if you get food stamps or not, the Highest Education Level in the Household, How well do you Speak English, Your Mental Health, Your Health Insurance, If you Served in the Military, How Many People Ride in Your Car to Work, the List Goes On And On.....

There is even a Special Race Section. Normally when you take any Survey, it will Give you a List of Races and ask you which one you Fit in, not this Survey, it has a Special Section that Says this:

Is Person 4 of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin?

_No, not of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin
_Yes, Cuban
_Yes, Mexican, Mexican Am., Chicano
_Yes, Puerto Rican
_Yes, another Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin – Print origin, for example, Argentinean, Colombian, Dominican, Nicaraguan, Salvadoran, Spaniard, and so on.


Then Under this They ask the Standard Question:

What is Person 4’s race? Mark (X) one or more boxes.

_White
_Black, African Am., or Negro

_American Indian or Alaska Native — Print name of enrolled or principal tribe.

_Asian _Indian _Chinese _Filipino _Other Asian – Print race,for example, Hmong, Laotian, Thai, Pakistani, Cambodian, and so on.

_Native Hawaiian _Guamanian or Chamorro Samoan _Other Pacific Islander –Print race, for example,Fijian, Tongan, and so on.

_Japanese _Korean _Vietnamese _Some other race – Print race.


Negro? Who Says Negro? Also Why Does there Need to be a Special Race Section for People of Hispanic, Latino or Spanish Origin? Where is the Irish Section? Don't Irish Americans Legal or Not have Representation. Bosnian? Arab? But People of Hispanic Origin Get Special Treatment Why?

Why...Because the Census is for Deciding the amount of Representatives each State Gets. So if they include Illegals on the Census, then they Hope more Liberal States with Large Populations of Illegals will be allowed more Representation, there by Solidifying the Progressives Future Reelection and allowing one Communist/Socialist type Agenda to be easily "Progressed" effectively Changing the Foundation of this Country forever. Basically making a one Party System without the Violent Revolution... That is Why.......

Don't like this Survey? Think it's Too invasive? If you Receive it in the Mail are you not going to Fill it out?...Think again. By Law if you Fail to Fill out this Survey and return it, you will be fined up to $5,000. If you Fill out the Form with the wrong information then you can be fined up to $500.

This "Survey" is just as Invasive and Unnecessary as the Fact that the Federal Government just recorded the GPS coordinates for every Home in the Nation, using the Census as an excuse. This is Too Much Information that is none of the Federal Governments Business.

Makes you wonder what they are going to do with the Fact that I may drive 50 miles to work, by My self in a Minivan....and Yes..I can Put on My own Pants.

Congressmen Threaten Private Business Owner For Exercising His Rights

According to an Article in Fox News, William Frey is being Intimidated with a veiled Threat by 6 Congressmen from the House Financial Services Committee, including Barney Frank.

Mr Frey Owns a company that compiles Mortgage Backed Securities and under the law he is says that:

"Any investor in mortgage-backed securities has the right to insist that their contract be enforced."

Mr Frey has been calling banks that hold his Securities and threatening law Suits if they try and renegotiate and of his Mortgage Back Securities, which lowers the value of his investment and is Legally his Right.


But Shortly after making these Calls, he received a Letter from 6 Members of the House Financial Services Committee. Included in that list of Names is Barney Frank. Follow the Link Below to see the Letter:


http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/052609_freyletter.pdf



In response to the Letter Mr. Frey Made the Statement:


"Clearly [the letter] was trying to intimidate me, but given the way I run my business, I knew they did not have any outside lever to force me to comply with their wishes," he told FOXNews.com."

This is a Perfect example of what the Federal Government has become. A Group of Tyrants Drunk with Power who will stop at nothing to push forward their Agenda, No matter who gets in their way.

This is not the America I was Raised to Respect and Honor, this is the Type of Government that I and every Patriotic American was Raised to Detest and Resist.

Is the Government Take Over of 2 of the Big 3 American Car Makers Legal?

There is only a Short Answer to this Question. Here is the Short Answer.

No, it's not legal. There is nothing in the Corporate Bankruptcy Code or the Constitution of the United States that Allows the Federal Government to Take Over a Privately held Company, even in Corporate Bankruptcy. To see for Yourself please read what the Government says is allowed in Corporate Bankruptcy as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission explains it:

http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/bankrupt.htm

The Excuse Given by the Federal Government for suddenly having the power to take over Businesses is that the FDIC can take over Banks before they fail so that there is not a disruption in service and to prevent run on Banks. So the Administration Feels that the Government can take over Companies that are Too Big to Fail in order to protect Jobs. (BS) Here is the Role of the FDIC as explained on their Website:

"To protect insured depositors, the FDIC responds immediately when a bank or thrift institution fails. Institutions generally are closed by their chartering authority – the state regulator, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, or the Office of Thrift Supervision. The FDIC has several options for resolving institution failures, but the one most used is to sell deposits and loans of the failed institution to another institution. Customers of the failed institution automatically become customers of the assuming institution. Most of the time, the transition is seamless from the customer's point of view."

Or Read it Yourself on their Site:

http://www.fdic.gov/about/learn/symbol/index.html

The Big Problem with this Reasoning by the Federal Government is 2 Fold.

1.First the FDIC IS NOT A PART OF THE GOVERNMENT. For the Federal Government to claim Powers that are held by another Independent Company or Agency opens the Door for the Government to do Anything to Anyone, with no Restrictions.

2. Second the Powers to take over Private Business Willy Nilly IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION. There is NO LAW or CONSTITUTIONAL POWER that allows the Federal Government to Seize a Company JUST BECAUSE IT WANTS TO.

This minor Fact that the Federal Government is illegally seizing Financial Institutions and Auto makers in order to Push forth a Political agenda is being ignored in the Media. Which isn't surprising since the Administration is acting so fast that it makes it hard for anyone to combat any Unconstitutional Actions. It's tantamount to a Political "Shock and Awe" on the Protectors of liberty, being accomplished by the Progressives that are accomplishing a "bloodless" coup in this Country.

Which is why when you wake up every morning you feel that it isn't the same country it was when you went to sleep.

It's because it isn't...Every Night while you are sleeping.....the Armies of Collectivism have been feverishly working...hoping to overwhelm your senses and force you to either mentally shut down or get angry enough and become a "Right Wing Extremist" so that they can easily dismiss you as Nuts...or round you up later as a threat to the Nation.

Some may be saying, well "then why did that Court in New York Shoot down the attempt at stopping the Government Forced Bankruptcy based on Unconstitutional Grounds if it's illegal?"

Well the Judge Just happens to WORK for the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and for a Judge to Come Out against an Administration that isn't Afraid to Threaten a Private Business with Destruction if they Fail to Go along with the Presidents Plan... Would Be Suicide for that Judge..That would Be the Last Ruling that Judge would make before he gets Demoted to Traffic Court in a Hick Town and the Government would Still take Over the Company Anyway.........

Besides you think your Scared, Imagine if you were one of the Few honest People in Government...You Would be Terrified and Probably Keep your Mouth Shut Too.

That is why it is important that those that know Don't Keep their Mouths Shut, but Shout it From the Roof Tops and Damn The Consequences!!

THIS IS TYRANNY!

Woman in Texas Hospital Told to Take Down American Flag: Says it was Offensive

According to Channel 11 CBS News in Dallas, a Woman working as a supervisor in a local Hospital was asked to take Down Her American Flag, the one that she put up in her shared office before Memorial Day, because some people claimed it was Offensive.

She was told on Friday that one of Her Fellow Supervisors that Shared her Office and several Patients complained that the Flag was offensive, so it had to be removed. She said she was "Speechless". She was also quoted as saying:

"I find it very frightening because if I can't display my flag," she asked, "what other freedoms will I lose before all is said and done?"

The Flag that she hung on Her wall was a Standard 3x5 foot American Flag which she immediately took down. She was later told that as far as Patriotism was concerned, the Flag flying outside of the Hospital would have to suffice.

When this Story went National yesterday, the Hospital and the Head Quarters in Kentucky was flooded with Calls and e-mails from Angry Patriotic Americans.

According to an update on the Story, the Hospital has suddenly changed their Mind and is allowing the Woman to rehang her Flag. Now they claim it was not the Flag that was Offensive, but the Size.

North Korea Abandons 1953 Armistice that Ended Korean War

The North Korean Central News Agency announced Today:

“The Korean People’s Army will not be bound to the Armistice Agreement any longer"

This is in response to South Korea joining the the U.S.-led Proliferation Security Initiative.

North Korea says this move by South Korea is a declaration of War and any move to seize North Korean vessels in search of WMDs or the Materials to make them will be met with “prompt and strong military strikes.”

Susan Rice the U.N. Ambassador to the United Nations said:

" North Korea will not succeed in trying to intimidate the international community, that they will pay a price for their actions and that together we're going to increase the pressure, and indeed, increase our concerted efforts to try to prevent North Korea from pursuing the path that it's on."

The U.S. has about 30,000 troops in South Korea along the 38th Parallel. These Troops have been in place since 1953 in an effort to assure that any Ground aggression by the North would have to go Through the Americans First, in essence Guaranteeing the U.S. support for the South in any future War.

It appears that the U.S. will be forced to "Buy Off" North Korea as past Administrations have done with "Financial Aid" or face being the Next Administration that starts a War over WMD's.

Somehow I think this Administration will happily Print more money to "Aid" North Korea, just so that they can build another Nuke that they supposedly weren't in the Process of Building under the last Administration. But North Korea is believed to already have 6 to 12 Nukes already assembled, with more on the way.

Chrysler Lenders Say Government Take Over is UnConstitutional - New York District Court Denies Claim

A Group of Indiana Pension Funds, that Got Hung Out to Dry when the Government Forced the Takeover of Chrysler, attempted to Block the Completion of the Government Forced Bankruptcy Claiming that the Take Over was Unconstitutional since the Government circumvented it's Property Rights and Bankruptcy Protections established for Lenders.

A New York District Court recently Denied their Claim, allowing the Government's Take Over Plans to Continue unabated. The Indiana Pension Funds will be allowed to appeal the ruling, but not before the Bankruptcy is completed.

This Ruling will Give Steam to the Administrations efforts to take over 70% of GM through a similar Unconstitutional tactic. This will also discourage Future investors in investing since it appears Contract Law no longer applies to the Federal Government. The Government is now the Ultimate Power and No One can Challange it Court.

You are seeing the Destruction of a Once Free Country by a Government using a "Crisis" as an excuse. This is very similar to what the Nazi's did in Germany. Take Over a Company(Especially ones run by Jews) and replace the Heads with Nazi's that will do the Will of the Government.

The Free Market is no Longer Free when the Government is allowed to take over Any company it wants for No Reason. That is Tyranny....

Government Submits Plans For Electric Car for Approval to.... Itself : to Be Built By Government Run Chrysler

According to an Article on Reuters UK, the Government Run Chrysler has submitted Plans to the Government Department of Energy for approval to Research and Develop Electric and Hybrid Vehicles. (You Can't Make Up things this Stupid..Really.)

The Plan would demand that each of the 4 "Partners" that make up Chrysler (U.S. Government, Canadian Government, Union, Fiat) submit $224 Million Dollars each plus $83 Million for the Construction of Facilities in Michigan for the Building of 20,000 of the "People's Electric Car" per year.

The President has said that these Type of Electric Cars would be a "little" more expensive than Tradition Cars, but how much wasn't Clear until now. The Plan also includes $365 Million Dollars for the Construction of a Demonstration Fleet of 365 test Vehicles to be Distributed to Select Customers and Partners.

Wow..That's a Million Dollars a Car....Talk about being a "Little" more expensive than Traditional Cars...lol We'll Need a Government Bailout just to Buy One.....

If the Government Decides to approve it's own Plan is not yet Clear.....But I am Willing to bet that the Government will not Have a Problem with approving Their Own Plan for the making of the Government designed and Manufactured Vehicles.

Yugo...Here we come!

Save the Planet: Paint Your Roof White....

Steve Chu, The Energy Secretary has stated that to combat "Global Warming" the Government Needs to make everyone use light Colors on Roads, Sloped Roofs and even Paint Flat Roofs White.

This Idea is based off the Fact that White Reflects Heat and therefore the Building will not need to use as much energy to Cool. While that may make some sense, Mr. Chu is forgetting that we live in the United States, and If I want a Black Roof, with a Black Car and Run My Air ALL Day then I can.... But the Government is looking to take away that Freedom using "Global Warming" as an excuse.

According to the Times Mr. Chu said:

" building codes should require that flat roofed-buildings have their tops painted white. Visible sloped roofs could be painted "cool" colors. And roads could be made a lighter color."

"I think with flat-type roofs you can't even see, yes, I think you should regulate quite frankly,"

"Yes, absolutely … White roofs everywhere, yes."

Dear God, the Loonies are Running the Asylum....

Next Victim of Anti-Gun Groups: PaintBall

In Germany, a 15 year Old Boy killed 15 people in March so instead of condemning the Boy and his actions, the German Government is considering a crack down on Paintball. Huh?

Paintball is a Sport where people split into teams, armed with air powered paintball Markers, and attempt to capture the other Teams flag. As a Player is "Hit' with a Paintball that Breaks, that Player then Leaves Game Play until the Game is over. It's alot like "Tag" but with an Air Powered Marker instead of your Hand. There are several other "Scenarios" played but this is the Most common next to Speed Ball, which is a much more T.V. Friendly version of Paintball.

The German Government is suddenly deciding that Paintball is Militaristic and Dangerous Activity that Teaches People Military Tactics and Violence therefore is a danger to the German Nation.

If this Gets a hold in Europe, expect to see this Ban coming to the United States, with the same excuse, that it teaches Kids violence. As if Paintball Players are out there Beating each other's heads in and Bayoneting each other into a Bloody mess. What Idiots are Running Countries any more...Really?

I personally have been an avid paintball Player for 18 Years. It's a great Team Building Activity and a fantastic Exercise for Young Kids that are used to playing Video Games instead of going outside. There is no other sport that can be played by Anyone, with no Skills, and Still have a Great Time and a lifetime of Stories to talk about when you get home. There have been many businesses that will reserve a field For a company outing so that the employees will benefit from working together under stressful but fun situations. No Other Sport offers that opportunity anywhere.

But like anything Fun and Different, someone has to say it promotes Violence. Heck Driving with my Wife Promotes violence towards other Drivers that make her angry, but we aren't banning her are We?

This is another example of a Government looking to take control over their Population using Any reason possible to accomplish that Goal. Paintball had nothing to do with that Kid doing what he did.....unless he did it with a paintball Marker...But that is Impossible.

Unless he poisoned the Paintballs...

Keep an eye on this Agenda to ban Paintball....this is Coming to America...I'll bet on it!

Can't have Right Wing Extremists training to Defend the Constitution or anything.....

Using Air Markers...and little Balls of Paint.....

Buy Your Tobacco on the Internet? You're Tobacco Smuggling....and Supporting Terrorists...

There is a Bill that just passed the House called the "Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act of 2009" or H.R. 1676. This Bill is a Back Door Attempt to Tax Tobacco Sales on the Internet.

According to Congress this Bill is necessary because:


(1) the sale of illegal cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products significantly reduces Federal, State, and local government revenues, with Internet sales alone accounting for billions of dollars of lost Federal, State, and local tobacco tax revenue each year;

(2) Hezbollah, Hamas, al Qaeda, and other terrorist organizations have profited from trafficking in illegal cigarettes or counterfeit cigarette tax stamps;

(3) terrorist involvement in illicit cigarette trafficking will continue to grow because of the large profits such organizations can earn;

(4) the sale of illegal cigarettes and smokeless tobacco over the Internet, and through mail, fax, or phone orders, makes it cheaper and easier for children to obtain tobacco products;

(5) the majority of Internet and other remote sales of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco are being made without adequate precautions to protect against sales to children, without the payment of applicable taxes, and without complying with the nominal registration and reporting requirements in existing Federal law;

(6) unfair competition from illegal sales of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco is taking billions of dollars of sales away from law-abiding retailers throughout the United States;

(7) with rising State and local tobacco tax rates, the incentives for the illegal sale of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco have increased;

(8) the number of active tobacco investigations being conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives rose to 452 in 2005;

(9) the number of Internet vendors in the United States and in foreign countries that sell cigarettes and smokeless tobacco to buyers in the United States increased from only about 40 in 2000 to more than 500 in 2005; and

(10) the intrastate sale of illegal cigarettes and smokeless tobacco over the Internet has a substantial effect on interstate commerce.

The Only True Reasons for this Bill are #1 and the second part of #5, the Rest is Bogus. I have NEVER heard of Terrorists using ILLEGAL Tobacco as a source of income, Hard Drugs yes, Tobacco...um No.

This bill is to Force the Internet Tobacco Stores to Pay Sales Tax, which currently is impossible to collect or enforce. This is just another "Tax Haven" that the Government wants to eliminate.

This Bill is supposed to:


(1) require Internet and other remote sellers of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco to comply with the same laws that apply to law-abiding tobacco retailers;

(2) create strong disincentives to illegal smuggling of tobacco products;

(3) provide government enforcement officials with more effective enforcement tools to combat tobacco smuggling;

(4) make it more difficult for cigarette and smokeless tobacco traffickers to engage in and profit from their illegal activities;

(5) increase collections of Federal, State, and local excise taxes on cigarettes and smokeless tobacco; and

(6) prevent and reduce youth access to inexpensive cigarettes and smokeless tobacco through illegal Internet or contraband sales.


So if you currently Purchase Tobacco over the Internet you are a Criminal and Support Terrorists....lol

Whats Next? Collecting Internet Taxes on Clothes Purchases? making it illegal to Ship Jeans via the U.S. Postal Service?

Wow.... I guess I am going to start Growing Tobacco in my Yard. I don't smoke but it appears there is a Whole New Tobacco "Smuggling" boom that I am missing out on....

Got to Make money some how.....I guess I would be a Tobacco Dealer....Standing on the Street Corner...making Tobacco Runs delivering Cigs...lol

Between my Black Market Edison Light Bulb sales and Now My Black market Tobacco farm...I should be bigger than Capone...lol

Government Suggests Save the Planet: Stop Drinking Alchohol and Eating Lamb


According to an Article on the Times Online, the Chief Executive on the Committee for Climate Change, David Kennedy, is suggesting People stop consuming certain Foods that have a High Carbon Foot Print in order to "Save the Planet". According to "Studies" being done by the Government, Foods that so far should be avoided are Lamb, Alcohol, Green House Tomatoes and Kebabs.

The Reason to Avoid Lamb, according to Mr. Kennedy, is that Lambs "Burp Too Much" which causes 37ib of Co2 or Green House Gases. Please Read that Again....Especially those of you that Think CO2 is a Pollutant....BURPS too Much. Mr Kennedy says that Cows are only Slightly Better but are almost as bad because of their GAS. That's Right, Cow FARTS are a DANGER to the PLANET.

How can Anyone take this Seriously?? I guess there will have to be a Government BEANO Bailout for Cows. Wow...Am I really Wasting my Time Writing This?? Government Money is Really Being Spent on This Garbage? Sorry, I went off on a Rant...here is the Rest of the "Story".

Alcohol is one of the Biggest Foods that Contributes to "Green House Gases" according to Mr. Kennedy. The Growing of Crops and the Making of Alcohol produces 1.5% of the Worlds "Green House Gases". (Dear God..These People are Nuts. WE ARE CARBON BASED LIFE FORMS HELLO!!!).

Mr. Kennedy suggests that we all eat more Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables as well as Pork and Chicken since their "Carbon Footprint" is much Less.

Mr Kennedy says he isn't trying to install a Prohibition or anything but:

“We are not saying that everyone should become vegetarian or give up drinking but moving towards less carbon intensive foods will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve health.”

The "Carbon Trust" is a Government Funded Firm that is working with Food and Drink Companies to help reduce their Carbon Foot Prints of Products. According to the Article:

"Coca-Cola, for example, generates only about half the greenhouse gas emissions of Innocent’s “smoothies”. Cadbury’s chocolate generates about 4½lb for every 2.2lb eaten - less than half that from theof CO2 same weight of chicken. "

Wow...Now that is Tax Payer Money Well Spent........Yep not a Waste at all....
Can't wait till this Cap and Trade is installed Here in the U.S., like they have in Europe...Then we will all Receive our Government Approved Menu for the Foods we can Eat...

So we can Save the Planet...From Lamb Burps....and Cow Farts...
Next thing you know You will Get a Ticket for Passing Gas...with Out a Carbon Credit...

Lithium: Creating The New Oil Barons

With the Huge Push by Progressive Governments around the World for Battery Powered Cars, the Demand for the batteries that power those Cars will increase creating a New Era of "Battery" Barons. Like Oil is for the Middle East, Lithium for Batteries will be the New "Big Money" resource for the Select Few Countries that have deposits.

The Irony of the Battery Powered Car being a "Renewable Resource" is the Fact that the Lithium that is needed to make the Batteries is not Renewable and Very Limited. There are only 4 Places in the World with Known Lithium Deposits: the Andes mountains of Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and China.

The Other Irony to this New "Green" Technology is that the Process to Extract the Lithium from the Rock and from Brine is just as Dangerous if not more to the Environment than Drilling for Oil. Add to that the Fact that Oil Consumption will not Decrease because of Battery Powered Cars, but Increase since Oil is used to make everything from the Tires, to the Lubricant in the Engine and Every Plastic Component, even the Battery Casing itself makes you wonder How "Green" this Idea really is.

As Lithium increases in demand for Hybrid and Battery Powered Cars, the Prices of our Everyday Electronics from Laptops, Cellphones and even to the Batteries that Power Toys that contain Lithium will increase. Which may force alot of People who rely on these technologies to cut Back on Purchases and rely more on Outlet Supplied Power.

But the Ultimate Irony in this "Progressive" push to "Save the Planet" is that the Battery Powered Cars will have to be Recharged by Plugging them into a Wall Outlet. The Majority of Electricity in the World is created either by Nuclear Power or Coal Powered Plants. These "Non Green" plants would be forced to increase Production as the Demand for more Electric Power increases, there by increasing the Pollution that is Produced by these types of Power plants. Especially since the Concepts of Wind and Solar are not Near Advanced enough to supply the same amount of Electricity as Coal or Nuclear.

All of this added together begs the question.....

Is Battery Power "Greener"? Or just creating another Smaller Group of Barons that will control the Demand for Our Car's Fuel while Polluting the Planet it was meant to save?

According to a Communist Party Leader Speech: Obama is Like Santa Clause

Sam Web, The Communist Party USA Leader , Gave this Speech on May 17, 2oo9 at the Better Worlds Awards in New York:

"On the heels of the first 100 days of our new President, we heard nearly endless commentary and analysis. Much of it was favorable; and some wasn’t.

I would like to briefly add my two cents.

After the first 100 days I would say without hesitation or qualification that the political atmosphere, landscape, conversation and agenda compared to the previous eight years of the Bush administration have changed dramatically.

To borrow an expression of Jarvis Tyner, the executive vice chair of our party, “What was once impossible during the Bush years has become possible, thanks to the election of Barack Obama.”

In this new political climate, we can foresee winning a public option, like Medicare, in the current legislative fight over health care reform.

We can visualize enacting tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry that brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine bringing the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan, while being part of a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In this new political climate, the expansion of union rights in this legislative session is not only sensible, it’s doable.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still rising and likely long term persistence of unemployment with the heaviest burden, as usual, falling on communities of color.

Isn’t it possible in the post-Bush era to launch a vigorous attack on global warming and create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and elsewhere?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism and employing punitive treatment as it organizing principle – no longer pie in the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these --- and many other --- things are within our reach now! We can dream again, knowing that the gap between our dreams and reality is bridgeable.

We can turn King’s words --- that “justice roll down like a mighty stream” --- into a living reality for every American. We can re-bend the arc of history in the direction of justice and peace.

But only if we, and millions like us, do our part in these struggles, much like we did last year.

Neither President Obama nor progressive congress people can do it by themselves --- they can’t be the only change agents.

After all, they are up against formidable opposition.

On the one hand the extreme right is badly weakened, but is still a poisonous and reactionary political presence in our nation.

On the other hand, the Obama change coalition includes people and groups that want to cut down on the scope and sweep of the reform agenda.

So both the new president and new congress need our help. Our responsibility is support them as well as prod and constructively take issue with them when we have differing views.

But more importantly – and this is the nub of the problem – we have to reach, activate, unite and turn millions of Americans into change agents who can make the political difference in these struggles.

Changes of a progressive nature, especially major ones--- if history is any guide --- usually combine the bottom up and the top down. So the challenge facing the discontented of our land is to be the bottom up change agents this year and in the years to come.

Our parents and grandparent did exactly that in the Depression years. Not happy with the pace and substance of change, they sat down in plants and in the fields, marched on Washington, petitioned local relief agencies, lobbied for a social safety net, established unemployed and nationality (immigrant) groups, organized industrial workers, opposed discrimination and racism, elected New Dealers to Congress and re-elected Roosevelt in a landslide in 1936, and turned (not all at once and not perfectly) multi-racial unity into an organizing principle.

I am confident the American people in their millions – reeling under the weight of this terrible economic crisis and yearning for a more decent, equal, peaceful and just world – will follow their example and turn this country into a more perfect union.

Yes we can --- Si se puede! "


Do I really Need to Comment? Really? The President is Giving the Communist Party Their Long Awaited Christmas List.

Just remember Congress and the President are Not Communists.....They just happen to have the Same Exact Agenda as the Communists...But they are Not Communists...

In reply to Mr Web's Speech all I can say is:

Liberty or Death

Daddy's Poem




Daddy's Poem
Her hair was up in a pony tail,Her favorite dress tied with a bow. Today was Daddy's Day at school, And she couldn't wait to go.
.
But her mommy tried to tell her, That she probably should stay home. Why the kids might not understand, If she went to school alone.
.
But she was not afraid; She knew just what to say. What to tell her classmates Of why he wasn't there today.
.
But still her mother worried, For her to face this day alone. And that was why once again, She tried to keep her daughter home.
.
But the little girl went to school Eager to tell them all. About a dad she never sees, A dad who never calls.
.
There were daddies along the wall in back, For everyone to meet. Children squirming impatiently, Anxious in their seats.
.
One by one the teacher called A student from the class. To introduce their daddy, As seconds slowly passed.
.
At last the teacher called her name, Every child turned to stare. Each of them was searching, For a man who wasn't there.
.
"Where's her daddy at?"She heard a boy call out. "She probably doesn't have one," Another student dared to shout.
.
And from somewhere near the back, She heard a daddy say, "Looks like another deadbeat dad, Too busy to waste his day."
.
The words did not offend her, As she smiled up at her Mom. And looked back at her teacher, Who told her to go on And with hands behind her back, Slowly she began to speak. And out from the mouth of a child, Came words incredibly unique.
.
"My Daddy couldn't be here, Because he lives so far away. But I know he wishes he could be, Since this is such a special day.
.
And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know. All about my daddy, And how much he loves me so, He loved to tell me stories He taught me to ride my bike. He surprised me with pink roses,And taught me to fly a kite.
.
We used to share fudge sundaes, And ice cream in a cone. And though you cannot see him, I'm not standing here alone.
.
Cause my daddy's always with me, Even though we are apart I know because he told me, He'll "forever be in my heart". With that, her little hand reached up, And lay across her chest. Feeling her own heartbeat,
.
And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads, Her mother stood in tears. Proudly watching her daughter, Who was wise beyond her years.
.
For she stood up for the love Of a man not in her life. Doing what was best for her, Doing what was right.
.
And when she dropped her hand back down, Staring straight into the crowd. She finished with a voice so soft, But its message clear and loud.
.
"I love my daddy very much,he's my shining star. And if he could, he'd be here, But heaven's, just too far.
.
You see he is a Marine And died just this past year When a roadside bomb hit his convoy And taught Americans to fear. But sometimes when I close my eyes, it's like he never went away."And then she closed her eyes, And saw him there that day.
.
And to her mothers amazement, She witnessed with surprise.! A room full of daddies and children, All starting to close their eyes.
.
Who knows what they saw before them,Who knows what they felt inside. Perhaps for merely a second, They saw him at her side.
.
"I know you're with me Daddy," To the silence she called out. And what happened next made believers, Of those once filled with doubt.
.
Not one in that room could explain it, For each of their eyes had been closed. But there on the desk beside her, Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
.
And a child was blessed, if only for a moment, By the love of her shining star. And given the gift of believing, That heaven is never too far.

Administration to Use Emotion to Argue for Universal Health Care, Not Constitution

In a New Series of E-mails sent to their Internet Army, the Administration has laid out it's Tactics to Force National Health Care through Congress, Emotion.

Two E-mails that have been sent describe the President's Need for People's Personal Stories to "Help" Congressman Vote For National Health care. Here is the First E-Mail:

"The chance to finally reform our nation's health care system is here. While Congress moves rapidly to produce a detailed plan, I have made it clear that real reform must uphold three core principles -- it must reduce costs, guarantee choice, and ensure quality care for every American.

As we know, challenging the status quo will not be easy. Its defenders will claim our goals are too big, that we should once again settle for half measures and empty talk. Left unanswered, these voices of doubt might yet again derail the comprehensive reform we so badly need. That's where you come in.

When our opponents spread fear and confusion about the changes we seek, your support for these core principles will show clarity and resolve. When the lobbyists for the status quo tell Congress to hold back, your personal story will give them the courage to press forward.

Join my call: Ask Congress to pass real health care reform in 2009.

After adding your name, please consider sharing your personal story about the importance of health care reform in your life and the lives of those you love.

I will be personally reviewing many of these signatures and stories. If you speak up now, your voice will make a difference.

http://my.barackobama.com/HealthCareOrganizing

American families are watching their premiums rise four times faster than their wages. Spiraling health care costs are shackling America's businesses, curtailing job growth and slowing the economy at the worst possible time. This has got to change.

I know personal stories can drive that change, because I know how my mother's experience continues to drive me. She passed away from ovarian cancer a little over a decade ago. And in the last weeks of her life, when she was coming to grips with her own mortality and showing extraordinary courage just to get through each day, she was spending too much time worrying about whether her health insurance would cover her bills. She deserved better. Every American deserves better. And that's why I will not rest until the dream of health care reform is finally achieved in the United States of America.

Please add your name to join my call. Then share your personal story about why you too will not rest until this job is done.

http://my.barackobama.com/HealthCareOrganizing

Last November, the American people sent Washington a clear mandate for change. But when the polls close, the true work of citizenship begins. That's what Organizing for America is all about. Now, in these crucial moments, your voice once again has extraordinary power. I'm counting on you to use it.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama"

As You can see, the President's Recent Speech about upholding and understanding the Constitution was a Bunch of Political Hot Air. The Constitution protects the States and the Individuals Rights to their Life, Liberty and Property. But in order for National Health Care to Work, the Federal Government must Seize One's Private Property (Income) and Re-distribute it to another in the Form of Health Care. But because the President Knows this, he is using a Push based on Emotion, not Constitutional Law, to progress his Agenda. But I Digress...

The Second E-mail describes the President's Move to organize Home Meetings to Launch the "Grass Roots" Health care Campaign. ..Wait...If the President is telling you to have meetings in your Home to start a "Grass Roots" campaign....then doesn't it cease being "Grass Roots"? Isn't that really "Astro Turf'? Since the orders are Traveling from the Top Down and not the Bottom Up? I keep getting Sidetracked...but wow....So does the President..

Here is the Second E-mail, sent 2 days later, it Plays upon the Same Emotions as the First:

"Remember this date: Saturday, June 6th, 2009. We will look back on that day as the moment when the fight for real health care reform began in your neighborhood -- perhaps even in your own living room.

On June 6th, in thousands of homes across the country, we'll gather to launch our grassroots campaign for health care. We'll watch a special message from the President. We'll build the teams and draw up the plans for winning health care reform the same way we won the election: Building support one block, one neighbor, one conversation at a time. And we'll put those plans into action.


These kickoffs are so crucial that President Obama will join confirmed hosts and attendees on a live conference call.

Sign up today to host or attend a Health Care Organizing Kickoff.

There's no prior experience required. We'll send you the details for dialing into the President's call and provide you everything you need to make your meeting a success.

After the election, people gathered at over 9,000 meetings across every state to set priorities for health care reform. Our voices were heard. Now the race is on to make sure Congress produces a plan that reflects the President's call for reduced costs, guaranteed choice, and quality care for all.

To make that happen, we need to build a groundswell of support in every district and every state, and we have no time to lose. All summer we'll be reaching out to our neighbors, knocking on doors, serving in our communities, and building a grassroots network strong enough to win.

These gatherings on June 6th are just the beginning of a battle between those who fought and believe in change and those who would protect a broken status quo. The stakes for our country could not be greater.

Some call this strategy pie-in-the-sky. They say we'll never have enough volunteers to make a real impact; that you need insiders and Washington lobbyists to make a difference. But you and I know firsthand how wrong they are. Starting June 6th, it's once again time to show this country how bottom-up change is done.

Please sign up today to host or attend a kickoff near you.

http://my.barackobama.com/HCkickoff

These kickoffs will be both effective and fun. You'll meet like minded supporters in your neighborhood, share stories, enjoy good company and a shared mission, and know that no matter what this effort requires of us, if we work together we'll be ready to face it and persevere.

I look forward to joining you and the President to chart our course.


David Plouffe
Organizing for America


P.S. -- This week, President Obama asked us to send in our personal health care stories. Hundreds of thousands of people have already responded, and the stories are simply incredible. Here are just few that help remind us what we're fighting for:

I am a single parent and have lost my teaching job effective in June. I'm scared to death because my son has a serious pre-existing condition (Neurofibromatosis) and can't go without medical insurance. However, my employer has just informed me that continuing my family coverage under COBRA will cost $1,400.00 a month! That's a house payment for me. Or three times my car payment! How can I keep my family covered without going under financially?

--CathyApple Valley, Minnesota

Since I lost my job in 2006, I have had no health insurance. After paying for insurance through my employer for 30 years, I have no major medical. But now that I am approaching 60, I may need insurance more than ever. I have not had a mammogram for three years because it would be too stressful to find anything suspicious. Risky but true.

--KathyMacon, Georgia

My husband isn't getting enough hours at his job to qualify for health insurance so we have been looking around for a provider. He has a pre-existing health condition (non-epileptic seizures) and he is being denied left and right. We don't make a lot of money, about $23,000/year and we can't afford to not have insurance, in case he needs to go to the doctor. And it looks like we can't afford to have it either. We are stuck.

--AmandaPasadena, California"

These E-mails are a Great Example of the Progressive Tactics that utilize Emotion to push forward an Unconstitutional Agenda. Almost every issue that is being pushed forward on a Populist Platform is based on Emotion not Rational Thought.

Universal Health Care - Emotional Argument For: There are People out there that Don't have Health Care and if You Stand Against it, then you are not a Kind Hearted person. Besides other Countries already have it.

Intellectual Argument Against: It is Unconstitutional. The Constitution Does not allow the Seizure of Private Property, under the Guise of Taxes or not, to be Given to another for Any Reason Under the 4th Amendment. Universal Health Care is Unsustainable. Looking at other Countries with Universal Health Care, they consistently Run Major Deficits and Debt to the Point of having to Ration Health Care in order to Cut Costs to the Government. The Government decides Who Lives and Dies under a Rationed Health Care System. And No Amount of Taxes Ever Collected will Ever be Enough to Pay for Universal Health care since Universal health Care does not Produce a product that can be Sold overseas or in a Market that will allow a Resupply of Money into the System. It is a Bottomless Pit to Throw Money in that will NEVER Produce anything. We are NOT other Countries, we are unique in the World since we Stand for Individual Rights, Liberty and Freedom for All and not Collective Rights, Tyranny, and Rights of the Federal Government to Do What it Wants, When it wants and to Whom ever it wants. In Essence Universal Health Care becomes a Form of Population Control, since it allows the Government to Dictate who is Born and Who Dies based on who the Government Deems worthy.
This is why the President always refers to "Building a New Foundation" or as in these E-mails:

"are just the beginning of a battle between those who fought and believe in change and those who would protect a broken status quo"

"challenging the status quo will not be easy. Its defenders will claim our goals are too big, that we should once again settle for half measures and empty talk. Left unanswered, these voices of doubt might yet again derail the comprehensive reform we so badly need. That's where you come in.

When our opponents spread fear and confusion about the changes we seek, your support for these core principles will show clarity and resolve. When the lobbyists for the status quo tell Congress to hold back, your personal story will give them the courage to press forward."

The Foundation is the Constitution and the "OPPONENTS" to National Health Care are just trying to Uphold and Defend it, which is why the President needs to Lay a "New Foundation" and "Change" the "Status Quo" because under the Current Constitutional Foundation, his Populist Plans could be shot down if brought in front of a Real Constitutional Judge.

That is what the "Change" is about, building a totalitarian Government using emotion to Justify their Tyrannical Actions and Micro-Managing Your Lives.

This Tactic is nothing New......Read the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William L Shirer....It's almost like you can Watch it all Unfolding right before your Very Eyes.....

President says Government Hopes to Pull out Of GM "After" Recession

During an Interview on Saturday, the President said:


"Ultimately, I think that GM is going to be a strong company and we are going to be pulling out as soon as the economy recovers and they've completed their restructuring,"


GM has offered their Bondholders 10% of the "New" Company as Obama has ordered them to Do. But many of the Bondholders listed this as unfair since they should be allowed 90% of GM.
This Dispute could mean that GM will be going into Bankruptcy in the Next Couple of Weeks.

The Administration forced Chrysler into Bankruptcy in a Similar Manner, after Threatening the Bondholders of Chrysler to Fall in Line or be "Destroyed". The Restructuring of Chrysler has led to Company that is owned by the U.S. Government, Canadian Government, UAW Members and Fiat.

The President also said:

"You are looking at a substantial market that is going to be available for U.S. automakers if they've made some good decisions now, and if they are building the kinds of fuel efficient, high performance cars that American consumers are hungry for,"

"I think GM and Chrysler can do that," he added. "We're confident that they can emerge and take advantage of that new market and actually be very profitable and thrive, but it means going through some pain now."

The President also made it clear that the Government Doesn't want to be running the Companies:

"We want to get out of the business of helping auto companies as quickly as we can," he said. "I have got more enough to do without that."


Normally I would just post the Link to a Story and Leave it at that, but this story Needs further Explanation.

The Idea that the Government is going to "Pull Out" of these Companies is Wrong. The Government is deciding WHO IS ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS. So even if the Government "Pulls Out" of these Companies on Paper, they will still be running them since the Government HIRED THOSE RUNNING IT. So this Story is Bull.

Let me try and explain what is happening.

Lets say you own a Business that happens to make Cars and you employ Thousands of People.

Due to a Middle East Artifical Fuel Price Increase your Sales Drop because before this increase people wanted Big, Safe Vehicles and since Gas was Cheap they didn't care about Fuel Prices.

So You try to adapt and Make a few Hybrid and Flex Fuel Vehicles, but they don't sell well because in reality people want Cheap Fuel not battery powered cars.

Eventually the Fuel Costs Fall and it's Business as usual. Except the Government wants the Industry to Make a Certain type of Car but the Industry says it costs too much. So the Government Agenda Goes no where.

Then the economy gets worse as it self corrects and sales Drop even more, so you are really in a fix, but it's not because of Gas Prices, it's because no one can afford to buy cars or get easy credit.

The Government seeing an opportunity to push forward it's agenda, seize control of Your Company under the Disguise of "Too Big to Fail" since it would effect so many Jobs.

But in reality the Government threatens those that don't go along with their plans, and Bribes others to get their way. Eventually the Government effectively takes your Company, then Fires you.

The Government then replaces everyone that was on the Board of Directors and through the Board, beings to Build cars that the Government wanted Built in the First Place. All while telling everyone that "They Don't Want To be Running Your Company" and "They Will pull out as soon the Bad Economic Times are Over."

But in the mean time the Government, now under control of Your Car Company, begins to build Cars that are less safe and the Market Doesn't want Since the Market Really wants CHEAP FUEL. So in order to Make People Buy those Cars they don't want, the Government must Force Fuel Prices Up, so they pass a Cap and Trade Program.

Since the Government Run Car Company that they took from You, is now the only one Making these "Fuel Efficient battery powered Vehicles" when the Demand goes up for them, due to the Government's forced increase of Fuel Costs, then the Independent car makers will Go out of Business since they do not have the Resources that the Federal Government has in being able to Print Money and absorb the losses in making the "Fuel Efficient battery powered Vehicles."

So the Government then can take over the other Car Makers, replacing their Board of Directors and make them Build the same type of Battery Powered Cars.

In the End the Government has created a Fake Demand, when before there wasn't one, and effectively owns the Car Industry even though they "Pulled Out" on paper.

This is exactly what is Happening Now.

The End Game is for the Government to Control More of it's citizens Lives, by dictating the Type of car we drive and to make sure that those cars have to be plugged into the "Smart Gird" so that the Government can monitor/control your life more closely and open up new avenues for Taxation.( like taxing the amount of Miles you Drive).

The U.S. Government has subscribed to a plan that will force the People to do the Will of the Government, instead of the Government doing the Will of the People. This is called TYRANNY. They are just using Global Warming as an Excuse for more Control over your Lives.

In order to Believe Global Warming you would have to Believe that the 0.036% of CO2 that makes up the atmosphere has a Reflective Property that can Trap the Suns Heat causing a Green House Effect. But if CO2 had this Reflective quality then reason would state that it would Prevent the Suns Heat from reaching the Surface of the Earth, therefore causing Global Cooling not Global Warming.

That is why so many Dictatorships have signed on to the Global Warming Wagon, not because they care about the Environment, but because they see it for what it is, a Tool to help them Micro Manage their Citizens Lives.

If China was so Concerned about the Environment, since they subscribe to Global Warming, why do they have some of the most Polluted Rivers in the World? For one to believe that Dictatorships and Communist Countries really cared about Global Warming, you would have to believe that they care more about the Earth Rather than their OWN CITIZENS.

So this is what is happening right now. The Government is seizing Private Banks, Insurance Companies and Car makers so that they can Put in Place who they want on the Board of Directors so that they can change the "Free Market" from the Inside. And so even after the Government "Pulls Out" of these Companies, they will still effectively be under Government Control.

Also the Government is Creating another Fake "Market Bubble" since the demand for these Battery Powered cars is Government Driven and if the Market should change, like it always does, and the Government Demand and Fake Fuel Price Increase Ends, then we are going to see a Huge Drop in the Economy as the whole "Green" car infrastructure collapses.

Wake Up People!

Watch what they Do....

Not what they say!

During "Green" Energy Push, Solar Panel Company Posts Unexpected Loss

Yingli Green Energy, A Chinese Based Company and a Maker of Solar Panels, posted an unexpected quarterly Loss yesterday. This forced Yingli to also re-adjust their yearly projections which forced down stock prices 9%.

In the Midst of the largest Push for "Green" Technology, the loss has caught some off guard. Especially since the President of the United States has set alot of his hopes for employment growth on "Green" Jobs and "Green" Manufacturing..

If the demand for "Green" Technology has reduced to the point that current "Green" companies are feeling the Pinch of the Down Turn in the Economy, then how are New "Green" Jobs and Manufacturing in the United States Going to be Sustainable?

The industry as a whole has suffered in the First Quarter and the predictions for the future are not looking Good.

Even with Government Mandated "Green" Technology around the World, the fact that most Consumers, even with Government Subsidizing, can not afford the conversion to the New "Green" Technology. Which may very well doom the Citizens of the United States to High Energy Prices due to Cap and Trade, accompanied with a lack of Funds to convert to becoming more "Green".

It appears the "Green" Technology Push may be shooting itself in the proverbial Foot.

Which means we may see the "Green" Technology Limp off into the Sunset.....and the Hope for New Jobs Going with it....

Dollar Plunges + U.S. Triple AAA Credit No More + Printing 50 cents of Every Dollar Spent = President Preaching to Citizens "Act More Responsible"?

Today the Dollar is Plunging, the United States is losing it's AAA Credit Rating and the Government is Printing 50 cents of every dollar spent and Borrowing the Rest....and the President has the Nerve to Preach to the American People about FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY?????

People, the Country is FLAT BROKE and all the Politicians can do is talk about SPENDING MORE MONEY that we DON'T HAVE! Maybe the President should give that little "Responsibility" Speech to Congress and Stop Preaching to the People Yelling: STOP SPENDING!!!!

There is a Very Good chance that the United States is going to lose it's AAA Credit rating because WE CAN'T PAY OUR BILLS!

The Dollar is Getting Lower in Value Because WE KEEP PRINTING MONEY and WE CAN'T PAY OUR BILLS!

We are Printing 50 cents of every dollar spent BECAUSE.....NO ONE WILL LOAN US very much MONEY since WE CAN'T PAY OUR BILLS!!!

Does anyone see a Trend here?? One that leads to a Deep Dark Road of Hyper-Inflation? Uber-Depression? And Possibly Economic Collapse?

What is worse is that the Politicians aren't looking for ways to make things Cheaper, they are in the Process of Guaranteeing we all Pay ALOT more for Energy...Like Gas, Electric, Natural Gas which will help many of us to NOT PAY OUR BILLS! Cap and Trade..Very Dumb Idea that will Guarantee the economy WILL get worse.

It's almost like the Politicans in Washington Want the Country to Fail......

Otherwise....WHY CAN'T WE PAY OUR BILLS? WHY DO THEY KEEP SPENDING??????????

White House Banned Reporters from Watching: White House Creates Own News Cast

The President Banned the Press from watching a pickup game between him and the University of Connecticut's the Lady Huskies.

After the Meet and Greet in front of the Press, the President and the Lady Huskies left and went to the President's Private Basket Ball Court for a Quick Pick Up Game. When the Press Corp Tried to Follow they were confronted and told that they were Banned from watching the Game. This caused an uproar of Protest from the reporters but to no avail.

After the event the White House released it's own report, including interviews, on You Tube complete with Logo, voice overs and all of the bells and whistles that a Normal News Channel would provide.

This has caused a little outrage in the Media world. In a Blog on ABC News written by Jake Tapper he states:

"It's perfectly fine, of course, for the White House to put out its own version of events -- but is it right to do so by preventing actual reporters from covering something? (Even something like a pickup basketball game).

Do Obama White House officials think their media coverage isn't flattering enough?

Is the goal to ultimately replace the pesky photographers who film what they want to and not what they're told to (not to mention the annoying reporters who ask uncomfortable questions about, say, detainee policy and bank bailouts)?"

Below is the Report as seen on You Tube:

Republicans Wuss Out: Climate Bill Gets Out of Committee

The Republicans Wussed Out and allowed the Cap and Trade Climate Bill out of Committee without much of a Fight yesterday.

The Democrats hired a Speed Reader to Read the almost 1000 page Bill in case the Republicans demanded that the Whole Bill and Amendments be read aloud, as allowed under the Rules. The Speed Reader was said to be able to read 1 page every 34 seconds, which would have meant that the Bill would take over 9 continuous Hours to be read in it's entirety. This would have allowed the Bill to be stalled in Committee after memorial day, which would have upset the President's Time Table in getting the Legislation passed.

But instead of forcing the Democrats hand, the Republicans shared a good laugh with the Democrats when they requested the Reading by the Speed Reader and let it go on for only 30 seconds. The Republicans ended it with a Request that the Reading of the Bill and Amendments be Dismissed.

They Wussed Out.

This is an example of how the Washington Republicans and Democrats are going into oblivion since they have no backbone and don't take the Domestic Threat of Socialism seriously. It's all a Big Joke to them....of course all they are after is more Control....not less Global Warming.

This is why Independents now outnumber Both Democrats and Republicans in numbers across the nation.

People are waking up......

To Bad Washington is in a Coma..

President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philly Warns of Inflation

Chalres Plosser, Head of the Federal Reserve Bank in Philadelphia, says that Prices may rise 2.5% in 2011, which is a much higher prediction than other "Conventional Wisdom" has forecast.

According to an Article on Bloomberg, Mr. Plosser said:

“The economy may be at greater risk of inflation than the conventional wisdom indicates,” Plosser said in a speech yesterday in New York. “While inflation expectations appear to remain anchored, we should not become sanguine about our credibility. It can be easily lost.”

“To sum up, I am optimistic that the economy and the financial system will recover,” Plosser, 60, said during the speech to the New York University Money Marketeers Club. “That does not mean the path to recovery will be smooth. There are plenty of opportunities for bumps and setbacks along the way.”

“Both our district and the nation are beginning to see some signs that the severity of the recession is beginning to wane,” said the regional bank chief, who joined the Fed in 2006 and doesn’t vote on monetary policy this year. Still, “the economy’s potential output may be lower than previously estimated for some time,” and the effects of the credit crisis are “likely to persist for a while.”

Mr. Plosser also issued some Wise advice to the Administration and the Head of the Fed, Tim Geitner when he said this:

“We need to draw a bright line once again between monetary policy and fiscal policy,” Plosser said. “The recent crisis has muddied that separation considerably and we must restore it. The Fed must not be seen by the public or the Congress as a piggy bank that can substitute for difficult fiscal policy decisions.”

President Snubs Kindergartners for Millionaire Luncheon

According to an Article on NBC Washington website, the President Snub a Group of Kindergartners for a luncheon with Millionaire NFL players.

Thursday Morning 100 Kindergartners from Stafford County VA. got up early, chartered a Bus and excitedly got on their way for a special Field Trip to the White House to meet the President.

According to Parents that were accompanying the Kindergartners, they claimed that the Bus was only 10 Minutes Late and denied entrance. They were told by the White House Staff that since they were "Late" that the President didn't have time to see the Kindergartners because they were getting ready for a luncheon with the Super Bowl Champions, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

According to the NBC Article:

"A lot of preparing had gone into the trip. Conway Elementary teachers had been planning the trip for months, each child paid $20 for a seat on the chartered bus, and names were submitted to the White House for clearance.

Parents say they tried to make it on time, but their chartered buses hit heavy traffic that slowed them down substantially. They thought they were supposed to show up by 10:15, but they say they arrived at 10:25 instead, and couldn’t get in.

"The person who headed this White House trip up came out and said, 'I’m sorry, the White House tour's off.' There were a lot of crying kids," parent Barbara Stine said."

Paty Stine, another Chaperon with the Children, Said:

"Here we have President Obama and his administration saying, 'Here we are for the common, middle class people,' and here he is not letting 150 5- and 6-year-olds into the White House because he’s throwing a lunch for a bunch of grown millionaires."

The White House claims that the Bus was not 10 Minutes late but an Hour Late which led to the canceling of the Tour. According to the Article, the White House is attempting to reschedule the Tour, even though the Parents say it is too late in the Year and School will be out in the next few weeks.

South Carolina Governor Sues to Stop Stimulus Money

Mark Sanford, the Governor of South Carolina, is suing his own Attorney General to prevent the State from Forcing the acceptance of the Stimulus Money for State Schools.

The State Legislature is forcing the Governor to request the Stimulus Funds, but the Attorney General would be the Department that would force the Governor to do so against his will. Hence the Law Suit against the State Attorney General.

The Governor's reasons for refusing the Federal Stimulus is because he claims the "Stimulus" is Unconstitutional on the State and Federal level since it Forces States that receive the Money to adhere to Federal Academic Mandates and force the State to agree to continued Unsustainable Spending.

According to an AP Article the Governor said it:


"would further burden South Carolina's economy and substantially increase the state's debt in the future and therefore is contrary to the welfare of the people of South Carolina."

The Governor has stated that he would only accept the Stimulus IF he was allowed to use it to pay down the Debt of the State. But the Federal Government will not allow it, saying it violates the requirements in the Bill.

So it appears the "Stimulus" is only available to those who fall in Line, not those who wish to help their state by getting rid of it's Debt. Funny..that is not very stimulating.

Speed Reader Hired To Read 920 Page Climate Bill

The Washington Democrats in the House Energy and Commerce Committee hired a Speed Reader to possibly read the 920 Page Climate Bill according to an Article in the Wall Street Journal.

This unprecedented move was spawned out of a possible necessity, in case the Republicans demand that the entire 920 page Bill and Amendments be read out loud before any further vote takes place.

According to the "New" Democrat staffer he can read 1 page in about 34 seconds, which would mean that he could complete the whole Bill in about 9 hours. Now if those listening to him have to be able to understand him or not, is not specified. Because if he talks like some of those "Speed Readers" on the Radio at the end of some advertisements, then I am not sure his reading of the Document, if not understandable, would be allowed.

If this does take place, I hope someone video tapes it and puts it on youtube, since this would be a great example of the idiotic Political Garbage that takes place in Washington. Also this 'Rush Job" is again an obvious Breach of a Promise made by the President to allow all Bills to be accessible to the Public for at least a week in order to give us all time to read it, before being passed.....but that is unlikely since the Democrats want a Vote on it by Memorial Day.

Or maybe they will just put the "Speed Reader" on T.V.- so we can all listen to the Reading of the Whole Bill......

For 9 Hours.....
