Keeping Jobs in America? : Government Run General Motors Does Almost $300 Million Dollar Deal To Build Cars in China
"When it comes to jobs, the choice in this election is not between putting up a wall around America or standing by and doing nothing. The truth is, we won’t be able to bring back every job that we’ve lost, but that doesn’t mean we should follow John McCain’s plan to keep giving tax breaks to corporations that send American jobs overseas and promoting unfair trade agreements. I will end those breaks as President, and give them to companies that create jobs here in the United States of America."
So I guess that Means that Government Run GM isn't getting a Tax Break since they are Sending Jobs to China.
According to an Article on BBCNews.com, Government Run General Motors(GM) has signed a Deal with the Government Run Chinese Car Maker FAW to make Light Trucks and Cars.
This Deal that will create jobs in China, and Not the U.S., will cost the American Tax Payer almost $300 Million Dollars.
According to Kevin Wale, Managing Director of GM's Chinese operations:
"For us in China, this is an important complement to the rest of our portfolio. We are well established in passenger vehicles and mini commercial vehicles and we haven't had a presence in the truck segment."
So Somehow GM can't make Trucks in the U.S. and Ship them to China for Sale....Could that be due to the "Unfair Trade" that Still exists between China and the U.S.?
The President is just trying to Keep His Promise to the Chinese People....
To Create Jobs in Communist China...

According to an Article in Reuters, Kenneth Fineburg, Obama's Pay Czar, has approx $50 Million Dollars in Assets and Past income:
"Kenneth Feinberg made $5.76 million last year as a partner in his Washington law firm, Feinberg Rozen LLP, according to a government ethics filing obtained by Reuters.
And his assets, which include a stake in his law firm, two homes and dozens of investments, are worth anywhere from $11 million to $37 million, according to the filing, which places assets in broad value categories.
His homes are a $1.66 million house in Bethesda, Maryland, near Washington, and a $1.96 million vacation home in West Tisbury, Massachusetts, on Martha's Vineyard."
On top of all of this, the Article states that the "Pay Czar" has almost another $2 Million Dollars from investments, Real Estate Sales and a Settlement.
One has to wonder....
Does the Fact that the Pay Czar is Wealthy mean that he is a Hypocrite for Restricting other's Pay to Prevent them from becoming "Rich"?
Or is this just a Great Example of the "Man"....
Keeping the "People" down?

Wealthy Supporters of the President Gather @ Union Hall to Push for "Free" Health Care : Monsterous Carbon Foot Print Created By Event
I attended the Organizing for America Health Care Rally in St. Louis Last night. The Event was held at the IBEW Union Hall and was attended by approx 800 People. As Some of the Supporters of the President's Health Care Plan walked to get to the Union Hall, the Sound of "Tea Baggers" and "Racists" reverberated in their mists as they passed Protesters of the Event.
Approx 200 people from the St. Louis Tea Party arrived on Scene to voice their opinion against the Government Health Care Plan. Bill Hennessey was the M.C. for the Protest. The Event was peaceful, but a Union "Plant" did mix with the Tea Party Crowd and attempt to cause Trouble. But once the "Plant" realized he was being Recorded, he attempted to start Ridiculous Chants but was laughed into Silence by the Crowd (See Video Below).
One of my Fellow Bloggers, Sharp from http://www.sharpelbowsstl.blogspot.com/, infiltrated into the event even after he was "Recognized" at the Gate by a Liberal Blogger. They tried to deny him entrance but failed due to the fact that he had an RSVP in Hand. He Recorded some amazing coverage from the inside and posted it on his site.
As the Tea Party was leaving the Event about 5 Police Cars and a Paddy Wagon arrived on scene. It appears that some of the Members of Organizing for America didn't appreciate the Boisterous Tea Party Protest and was hoping to have them silenced with the use of the St. Louis Police. But as the Police approached those Tea Party Protesters that were left, they assured us not to worry and to stay as long as we like. Thank You to the St. Louis Police Officers for Defending our Right to Gather in Peaceful Protest, they were very Professional and Kind.
About a half a dozen Conservative Protesters stayed on the Corner of Elizabeth and Hampton to make sure that those leaving the Event got a Chance to read their wonderful handmade signs. I stayed to record the Group in hopes that the Camera would head off any trouble that this small group may incur. For the most part it did, but I have never been called a White Supremest, Red Neck, Tea Bagger that many times in my life(or ever). The Flock of "Birds" that accompanied these intellectually deficient observations were large enough to create several "Flocks". One Person leaving the event in their car even yelled "Hurry up and Die Smoking those Cigarettes" at a Young man enjoying an evening Smoke while holding his sign.
Ahh..Compassion at it's best....
For the most part this event was "Staged" to look as if the President's Health Care Plan has overwhelming Public support. Unfortunately the only support it is appearing to attract are the people who are told to be there....
Driving their SUV's.....
Cheering a Gas Guzzling Bus....
Irony...Gotta Love it.
I have more Video of the Event to Post, but last night I was having trouble with my Internet Connection. When I get home from "Work" later today I will finish uploading all of the Footage that I took last night.
Check back after 8:00 P.M. CST for Updates...

Last week at the O'Fallon Corners Protest, a couple of Counter protesters Showed up and caused trouble. The police were called and there was a Threat made that the Opposition would show up with 100 People next week. Well, they didn't show. The only Opposition I saw, was a Sign in a Car window as it drove by.
It was heartening to see so many people come out to Protest for their Freedoms and to Stand against Tyranny. Below are some Pictures I took at the Protest Today.
Even though the Event was peaceful, the Protest did get a little heated due to the fact that Lucifer showed up on scene to 'Counter protest' and Push the Health Care Bill, which he appears to take credit for....

"A 10-year-old homeschool girl described as "well liked, social and interactive with her peers, academically promising and intellectually at or superior to grade level" has been told by a New Hampshire court official to attend a government school because she was too "vigorous" in defense of her Christian faith.
The decision from Marital Master Michael Garner reasoned that the girl's "vigorous defense of her religious beliefs to [her] counselor suggests strongly that she has not had the opportunity to seriously consider any other point of view."

"They're for the most part, I hate to say, brain dead, but they're just looking to raise money from insurance companies and promote a right-wing agenda that is not really very useful in this whole process."
The Blue Dog Democrats have been standing in the way of the President's Health care plan for weeks. It appears that the "Far Lefties" in the Democratic Party has had enough of "Honest Debate."
If this is how the Democrats treat some of their own when they disagree, how can anyone believe that they would give a darn about you and Your Health care. If this is how they treat people they have known for years, people they have ate with, visited with and actually know.
Why would they care if you Die or Not?

"Everything we've seen in the U.S. and everything we've seen around the world suggests we won't see that kind of number if the virus doesn't change.
While the swine flu seems quite easy to catch, it so far has not been more deadly than the flu strains seen every year during the cold months: many people have only mild illness. Also, close genetic tracking of the new virus as it circled the globe during the past five months so far has shown no sign that it is mutating to become more virulent."
But the White House has talked up the Fact that they hope to have enough "Swine Flu Vaccine" for Most people in the United States by Fall.
The Problem is IF the Swine Flu mutates, the Vaccine will be almost Useless since it has been created to combat the current version of the "Swine Flu."
Every Year the Regular Flu Vaccine is issued for "Certain Types" of the Flu Strain. But since it doesn't cover Flu Strains that Mutate during the Flu season, it won't help a Person build up an immunity for the Mutated Version.
So what the Government expects to accomplish by Hyping up the Death Toll and a Vaccine for the Current Swine Flu, when it won't help if the Swine Flu Mutates during the Fall, is not clear.
But some suggest maybe the Fear Mongering has something to do with Trying to Create Support for the President's Health Care Plan.
I guess this could be a Continuation of the Administrations Motto:
"Don't Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste."

The Above Poster says, " Learn the Great Path of Lenin and Stalin's Party."
Very interesting Communist Art. I hope you Like it, if not, Get used to it, you will be seeing more of it here in the United States.
I learned after the conference call that there were approximately 75 people participating, including many well respected street-artists, filmmakers, art galleries, music venues, musicians and music producers, writers, poets, actors, independent media outlets, marketers, and various other professionals from the creative community. I suppose I was invited because of my work in creating arts initiatives, but being a former employer of the NEA’s Director of Communications was probably a factor as well.
Backed by the full weight of President Barack Obama’s call to service and the institutional weight of the NEA, the conference call was billed as an opportunity for those in the art community to inspire service in four key categories, and at the top of the list were “health care” and “energy and environment.” The service was to be attached to the President’s United We Serve campaign, a nationwide federal initiative to make service a way of life for all Americans.
It sounded, how should I phrase it…unusual, that the NEA would invite the art community to a meeting to discuss issues currently under vehement national debate. I decided to call in, and what I heard concerned me.
The people running the conference call and rallying the group to get active on these issues were Yosi Sergant, the Director of Communications for the National Endowment for the Arts; Buffy Wicks, Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement; Nell Abernathy, Director of Outreach for United We Serve; Thomas Bates, Vice President of Civic Engagement for Rock the Vote; and Michael Skolnik, Political Director for Russell Simmons.
We were encouraged to bring the same sense of enthusiasm to these “focus areas” as we had brought to Obama’s presidential campaign, and we were encouraged to create art and art initiatives that brought awareness to these issues. Throughout the conversation, we were reminded of our ability as artists and art professionals to “shape the lives” of those around us. The now famous Obama “Hope” poster, created by artist Shepard Fairey and promoted by many of those on the phone call, and will.i.am’s “Yes We Can” song and music video were presented as shining examples of our group’s clear role in the election.
Obama has a strong arts agenda, we were told, and has been very supportive of both using and supporting the arts in creative ways to talk about the issues facing the country. We were “selected for a reason,” they told us. We had played a key role in the election and now Obama was putting out the call of service to help create change. We knew “how to make a stink,” and were encouraged to do so.
Throughout the conversation my inner dialogue was firing away questions so fast that the NRA would’ve been envious. Is this truly the role of the NEA? Is building a message distribution network, for matters other than increasing access to the arts and arts education, the role of the National Endowment for the Arts? Is providing the art community issues to address, especially those that are currently being vehemently debated nationally, a legitimate role for the NEA? I found it highly unlikely that this was in their original charter, so I checked.
The NEA was created by the Congress of the United States and President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965 as “a public agency dedicated to supporting excellence in the arts, both new and established; bringing the arts to all Americans; and providing leadership in arts education.” The issue of health care is curiously absent from this description on their website.
So I’d like to start a little debate and ask you, the reader, the same question. Do you think it is the place of the NEA to encourage the art community to address issues currently under legislative consideration? "
Now instead of totally violating any Copy write Laws and Fair use rules let me just post the Last Few Paragraphs of his narrative:
And if you think that my fear regarding the arts becoming a tool of the state is still unfounded, I leave you with a few statements made by the NEA to the art community participants on the conference call. “This is just the beginning. This is the first telephone call of a brand new conversation. We are just now learning how to really bring this community together to speak with the government. What that looks like legally?…bare with us as we learn the language so that we can speak to each other safely… “

85 Congressmen Support Single Payer Bill : Vote in September to Replace H.R. 3200 With Single Payer Bill
The Single-Payer Amendment to HR 3200 would establish a single-payer national health insurance plan to provide comprehensive, high-quality health benefits to all Americans."
Democratic Representatives John Conyers and Dennis Kucinich have even started a website to collect funds in order to Run ads in support of Bill H.R. 676. Here is one of their Ads Below:
So when you hear that the President and the Congress are giving up on a Single Payer system, don't believe it.
They are just trying to Sneak it in the back Door.

Cash for Clunkers was designed to remove all of the old Gas Powered Vehicles off the Road and force everyone to Buy a Government Created, Smart Gird Compatible, Smart Car. They do this by destroying the "Clunkers" instead of reselling them and then only allowing the Government 'rebate' to be used on Government approved Vehicles. This initial Program was the 'Pilot' Program for one that will be made into law sometime in the Near Future. They will probably cram it in the Cap and Trade Bill or some other piece of legislation that is 1000 pages long.
To Read a More Detailed Description of why the Government is doing Cash for Clunkers Go To:
Now the Government is going to start a New pilot Program to test it's effectiveness called Cash for Refrigerators.
This Program will pay rebates, through state energy agencies, to people who buy more energy efficient Appliances. Now where this program differs from 'Cash for Clunkers' (Which was probably an over site) is that the New 'Cash for Refrigerators' Program does not force you to Destroy your old Appliances.
Now Why is the Government choosing to do this Program?
Again, this has everything to do with the Smart Grid and Eventual total Government Control of your Life.
The 'Smart Grid' is the new system that is being built by the Federal Government with the Cooperation of Mega Companies like GE and Microsoft, that will allow the Utility company to Change the Temperature on your Thermostat, turn off your Hot water heater, Change your Electricity Rates by the Minute and base on Peak usage, as well as even adjust the Temperature in your oven and in conjunction with Cap and Trade , design a Personal "Carbon Footprint Report" so that the Government can Restrict your Individual Creation of CO2.
This is why the President said that we will not be allowed to have our Homes set at 72 degrees anymore, because he won't let us. The Smart Grid is how he is going to accomplish this..
Now in order for the Smart Grid to Control all of the Appliances in your house, they need to be replaced with "Demand-Control" appliances. These New type of Appliances will have the ability to talk to the "Smart Grid" and take commands from the Government via the Utility company.
But in order for everyone in the Country to replace their old Appliances with New 'Demand- Response Appliances', the Federal Government has to come up with a way to Make you Buy what they want you to buy, without you realizing the fact that they are controlling you. By using a 'Cash for Refrigerators' Program, people are encouraged to buy a Government approved Appliance in order to get the Rebate. That is called Behavioral Economics. The Government controls your actions and decisions by encouraging the behavior it wants you to adopt, in this case through Rebates.
Right now Demand-Appliances are not in Show rooms yet, but they will be by the end of the Year. Because the Smart Grid is set to go online some time next year in many places in the United States.
By the Government doing 'Pilot Programs' now( Cash for Clunkers and Cash for Refrigerators) when they are made into Law or just brought back later, you will not think twice about why. And you will believe that it is just what they say it is, the Government trying to 'help the Economy'.
But now you know, the Real reasons for these Programs is to Force you to Live the Way the Government wants you to live....Force you to Pay for the Destruction of your Own Freedom.
It's Just like the Slave Master Telling the Slave....
"Go Ahead, put those Heavy Chains on your Ankles, They are Just Weights to Help you Exercise and Stay Healthy."

For the First Time in Histroy: Union Leader Appointed to Head Federal Reserve Board in New York : Communist Party Celebrates
This move is being celebrated by the supporters of the President, including the Communist Party.
According to the online Newspaper for the Communist Party USA, the People's Weekly World(PWW), this move , and the Fact that the union received a large Chunk of GM, does not mean that the Labor Movement will lose it's "militancy":
"The labor movement, in its struggle to reverse the ultra-right stranglehold on the economy, has grown in power and influence. It has successfully entered the electoral arena and changed the makeup of the government. It has waged struggles for labor law reform and health care reform that could be on the verge of success. Against the backdrop of mass anger over the corporate greed that created the economic disaster, the appointment of someone like Hughes should not be seen as a surprise.
Representation of labor on the GM board, however, came about differently. There the union was forced to help bail out a poorly run enterprise, tasking financial responsibility from incompetent capitalists who couldn’t do it properly themselves.
None of these developments signal a move by labor away from militant collective bargaining struggles, fights on the electoral front, and struggles for passage of legislation, including a law that will make it easier to organize millions of new workers. They signal, instead, a labor" movement that is growing stronger because of those struggles."
Those Darn 'incompetent capitalists' they can't seem to run anything....especially when the Socialists/Communists are trying to undermine the Capitalist system.
With each new 'payback' to some Unions by the President, he continues to help in undermining that same 'Capitalist System' that helped to make the United States the Wealthiest and most Prosperous in the World.
Which Gives the Communists Reason to Celebrate.....
And Freedom loving Americans More Reason to Worry...

President's "Organization For America" Offering College Credits To Join : Is This Apart of Obama's Army?
According to an Article in World Net Daily, the President's "Grass Roots" group, 'Organizing for America'(OFA) is offering College Credits to young college students to join and help gather support for the President's Agenda. On several websites, the OFA is running ads like this one:
"Students and young people were critical in building the movement that helped elect President Obama last year. By becoming a National Organizing Intern, you'll be part of the grassroots effort to make the change we fought for a reality in 2009 and beyond. As an Organizing Intern, you'll work side by side with OFA staff and community leaders to help build support for President Obama's agenda. You'll learn core organizing principles that are crucial for any campaign and play an important role in building our organization in your state."
President Obama describes his time as a community organizer by saying: 'It was the best education I ever had, because I learned in those neighborhoods that when ordinary people come together, they can achieve extraordinary things.'
This is your chance to get that same education.
If you're passionate about making sure every American has quality health care, reviving our economy, and building a clean energy future, don't miss this great opportunity. No previous experience is needed in order to apply."
Some have speculated that this is the beginning of the President's 'Civilian Security Force'. Even Norm Sterzenbach, executive director of the Iowa Democratic Party, thinks that having this 'Organizing for America' is odd:
"But the idea of having a sitting president continuing an organization is fairly unusual."
As the President continues to "create" support for his agenda through Groups like 'Organizing for America' , More and More Americans continue to stand to oppose it.
If this is the Beginning of the Obama Army, I would say it's too little, too late.
Americans are waking up by the Millions.....
And Recently when the President asked for Millions to come out in Support for His Agenda on a Conference Call...
All that answered his call was 280,000....

According to an Article by the AP, the reason the Bees are Dying is:
"the varroa mite, which was accidentally introduced to the U.S. in 1986, is a carrier of picorna-like viruses that damage the ribosomes."
Ribosomes make proteins necessary for life. So when the Mites infect the Bees with this Virus it damages the ribosomes ability to make Protein. And this is important because:
"If your ribosome is compromised, then you can't respond to pesticides, you can't respond to fungal infections or bacteria or inadequate nutrition because the ribosome is central to the survival of any organism. You need proteins to survive," said May R. Berenbaum, head of the department of entomology at Illinois."

The Fact that Fidel Castro says that the President is "trying to make positive changes" is enough to stand against anything the President Proposes.
Also the Old Communist Leader Parroted President Obama's recent comments on who is to Blame:
"Obama had inherited many problems from his predecessor, George W. Bush, and was trying to resolve them. But the "powerful extreme right won't be happy with anything that diminishes their prerogatives in the slightest way."

The Administration picked the Agriculture Secretary, Tom Vislack and the Commerce Secretary, Gary Locke.
Mr. Vislack told the Press yesterday that:
"We think it is important for the president to be empowered to be able to say to the rest of the world that America stands ready to lead on this issue."
After which Mr. Locke followed up that statement with:
"The United States needs to set a very firm and clear example if we are to be successful in getting the other countries to be equally aggressive in addressing climate change."

President Losing Health Care Debate : Tells Press to Relax / Press Release about New Interrogation Group
This week the President went on Vacation to Martha's Vineyard and what did the White House Spokesman want to talk about?...... Relaxation. Leave the President Alone....This was quickly followed by a Press Release saying that the President was going to create a Special Terrorist Interrogation "Group" in the FBI.
This is how you can measure the Desperation in the Administration. This "Special Interrogation" group is old news. Months ago there was talk about this "Special Interrogation" group and there was some major backlash on the Web about the President forming his own "Gestapo". Because of this, the talk about the Interrogation Group went away.
Now, after the President is losing the Health Care Debate, they are trying to "Chum Up" the Internet waters with this "Special Interrogation" group again...Hoping that something, anything will take the Focus off the fact that the President has totally lost control of his Health Care Debate and is going down in Flames in the Polls.
That is what you call Desperate....
All the while he is trying to tell the Press Corp at Martha's Vineyard to "Relax" in hopes that the President will Disappear from the news. Out of site, Out of Mind.... The President is trying to "Change the Debate on Health care" by Removing the Debate All together....
He knows that the American People seem to have short memories and in September, he can come back and restart the Debate on Health Care in a Manner that he wants. Hoping that all of the opposition that are so Heated right now, will cool off by then and Go away...
But that is where the President is making a major miscalculation....
The American people are not only Angry, but Scared and the combination of those two emotions will not just "Disappear" because he isn't in the News.. In Fact, the way the Administration is trying to "Change the Debate" will just cause more anxiety, not less.
It is clear that those in Washington are Truly out of Touch with the American People.....
And that their attempt to Change the Debate will Fail....
That is unless they just drop the Debate all together....and Give up on their Agenda..
But then again..I will try not to get all "wee-weed" up over it...
Since it seems one of the President's important concerns is incontinence...

Price of Green Energy Technology To Skyrocket : China Writes Up Plan To Ban Export of "Rare" Minerals Found Only in China
China is writing up a plan to restrict the exports of rare Minerals that are used to make wind turbines, batteries for electric cars, hard drives, lasers, the Government Mandated Light bulbs and even Missiles.
According to the Article rare minerals are very important to the new "Green" technology like electric Cars:
"Each Toyota Prius uses 25 pounds of rare earth elements."
Other countries have limited rare Mineral Deposits, but the time it will take to extract them and the amount that is avaiable in the depostis, will not feed the Need for such minerals in the World Market.
If China follows through on this Ban, then the Federal Government will be forced to search for their Own sources of Rare Minerals in the United States. Which may make the Cost of "green tech" to high to be Viable.
So now China will now own the most Debt of the United States...
And Deny the U.S. the Minerals it needs to Go "Green"...
Somehow, the United States turning into a Third World Country seems more possible everyday...

Trouble Makers Give Peaceful Protesters in O'Fallon Missouri Trouble: 13 Police Officers Called to Scene
This Saturday, as the weekly Peaceful Protest of Patriots was breaking up, 2 Men suddenly appeared and began to cause a little trouble. Then Someone called the Police claiming that there was a "Fight between 10 People" going on. Here is a First Hand account of the incident:
"After everyone left, there were about 4 people left standing around talking and two men came over and tried to start trouble, screaming that next weekend they were bringing 100 people and picket right here with us against us. One person from our group got in their face screaming with these 2 men. I tried to tell everyone to calm down and that these gentlemen had the right to come just as we did and there was no need for fighting. However, someone called the police and there were six police cars and 3 motorcycle policeman. The African-American who was the one who started it had left when he saw the cars coming and the person who was screaming at these two men left also. The police spoke to me and the others there and said that next weekend if these people show up to protest, please do not engage in any altercations and to also remind people to not park in the Mobile parking lot. The officer took my drivers license info and home phone #, but no one else's and I didn't even get involved except to try to put out this fire of words being thrown. I just thought you might want to know to e-mail people that the police will come back if there's trouble next weekend. This whole incident was a set-up in my opinion. The police told us that someone called in saying there were 10 people there fighting and that is simply a lie. I talked to the two clerks at Mobile and they said the two men had come inside there first and went off on them that Mobile was allowing and basically endorsing the protest. They told the men that we were on public land and Mobile had nothing to do with it in any way."
These type of "Plants" are showing up at many Peaceful Protests all over the Nation trying to Discredit the Tea Party Movement and other Conservative Groups that are standing up against Big Government and Socialized Medicine.
I will be at the Protest in O'Fallon this Saturday to make sure that if the Counter Protesters show up in Force, that We Will Outnumber them.
This is pure intimidation and A Free People should Never Fear Tyrants!
The Protest starts at 1:00 P.M. at the Corners of Hwy K and N in O'Fallon Missouri in Front of the Mobil Station. Be there at 12:30ish and Do Not Park in the Mobile Station parking Lot. There is Plenty of Parking at the Schunucks Parking Lot just West of the Station and a WalGreens Parking Lot Just North of the Mobil Station.
It would also be nice to Patronize the Mobil Station, especially since the Employees were threatened by the Thugs and the Business has been nothing but nice to the Peaceful Protesters in the Past.
See you There!
"Nothing is More Powerful than Millions of People Calling for Change"
Too bad the Size of Audience he received on Thursday for his big Internet Conference Call only totalled 280,000.
Also it appears the President is trying to "One Up" his opponents and is calling for "Grass root" events this weekend to show Support for Health Care "Reform".
Now if the President calls for "Grass Root" events, doesn't that make them "Astro Turf" events since the Orders are coming from the "Top-Down?"
But I Digress...
Here is the E-mail:
"On Thursday, an astounding 280,000 Organizing for America supporters gathered online to huddle with the President at our National Health Care Forum. With Congress about to return to Washington to make historic decisions on health insurance reform, the President chose this critical moment to speak directly to the OFA community. He reminded us of how far we've come and what we can accomplish together:
Remember one thing: Nothing is more powerful than millions of voices calling for change. That's how we won this election. You know this, and that's why since OFA launched its health reform campaign in June you've hosted 11,000 events in more than 2,500 towns in every single state and every single congressional district...I am absolutely confident that we can get this done, but I want everybody to remember, this has never been easy....We are not going to give up now. We are going to get this done.
Now it's up to us to take the next step. This week, we need to make sure every member of Congress heads back to Washington hearing overwhelming support for change. Lies and fear must not have the last word about the health reform America so desperately needs. So here's what you can do: Find and attend a "Let's Get It Done: Health Insurance Reform Now" event near you.
There are thousands of events, in every part of the country. In some places, we're rallying near local congressional offices to deliver signatures of support from voters. In others we're meeting in high-traffic areas to offer passers-by an easy way to get the facts and call Congress, thanking those fighting for reform and urging others to stand with their constituents. Wherever you live, you can find a powerful way to show Congress, the media, and our neighbors that the American people have one clear message about health reform: Let's get it done.
Thursday, the President made the stakes of reform crystal clear. He talked about how, with health care costs rising three times faster than wages, the cost of inaction is simply too high.
He explained how reform will guarantee competition and choice. He described the Insurance Guarantees that will protect every American from discrimination against pre-existing conditions, exorbitant charges, and arbitrary denials or reductions in coverage just when we need it most.
And he made plain his stance on the public option: "So let me just be clear: I continue to support a public option, I think it is important, and I think it will help drive down costs and give consumers choices."
But even the best plan only matters if it passes, and that's where we all have a critical role to play. As the President said:
And that's why what all of you do is so important, because people trust you -- your neighbors, your friends, fellow community members -- they trust you. They know you. And if you are presenting the facts clearly and fairly, I'm absolutely confident that we're going to win this debate. But we're going to have a lot of work to do and I'm grateful that you're willing to do it. Let's go get 'em.
Answer the President's call -- find and attend an event near you:
Let's get it done,
Organizing for America"
What exactly did the President Mean by"Go Get'em"?
Does this mean I need to wear my Football Helmet in Case more SEIU members show up??
I haven't worn that since High school....
But I guess we all have to watch out for the President's "Purple People Beaters"....
(Purple People Beaters is a Trademark of Bill Hennessy and the St. Louis Tea Party. Any unauthorized use will be met with a Sudden Visit by a One Eyed SEIU Member wearing a Purple SEIU T-Shirt carrying a Purple baseball bat.)
According to an Article on the BBC, Martha's Vineyard has a Population of 15,000 with a Brazilian Population of 3,000-6,000 people. 70% of the Brazilian Population, on Martha's Vineyard, are in this Country Illegally.
These Thousands of Illegals serve food, clean the Pools for the Wealthy, Cut the Grass and even own shops that rent Scooters and Bikes to Vacationers.
BBC's Brazil Reporter, Bruno Garcez, interviews a Brazilian Man on Martha's Vineyard that says the Illegal Brazilian Population is very important to the Island:
"The Brazilians are the engine of the island. They are the ones who make it happen."
So As the President enjoys the Beauty of Martha's Vineyard, he will be literally staring in the Face of one of the Main Problems that Plague the United States. People who don't Follow the Rules, but are used as a "Slave Labor" work force for the Wealthy, and who ultimately take Jobs from Legal American Citizens.
But I am sure while the Illegal Alien Cleans his Pool, or Serves Him Breakfast, that the Main thing on his mind won't be the Plight of the Felon serving him a Beer....
But how he can Ram His unwanted Health Care Bill Through Congress...
To Enslave the Legal Law abiding Citizens of this Country to the Federal Government...

"Frankly, it won't be good for the Obama presidency."
Joe Liberman also points out that the Health Care Bill isn't the Only thing the President is trying to get done:
"He has got other fights to fight," the senator from Connecticut told CNN's "State of the Union," citing climate change, financial regulatory reform, and the war in Afghanistan."
How will they Force through the Bill? What Tactics will they Use? Democrat Chuck Schumer says the tactics:
"include just getting 60 Democratic votes and maybe an occasional Republican here or there… They include looking at reconciliation, which only needs 51, and they include a combination."
If you have never heard of "Reconciliation" before, that is because the Democrats just added a "Health Care Reconciliation" to the 2010 Budget. It seems they were expecting this kind of resistance and needed a New Way around it, instead of the boring, old, Constitutional Way.

Sharp from http://www.sharpelbowsstl.blogspot.com/ was the Master of Ceremonies(MC) for the Event.

According to an Article on Reuters:
"American International Group Inc (AIG.N) won dismissal of a federal lawsuit accusing the troubled insurer of fraudulently shortchanging state workers' compensation pools out of more than $1 billion."
So I guess if the Federal Government would have won the case against the Government Run AIG, it would be like paying itself.
This is a great Example of why a Government Run Insurance Company is a bad Idea. If the Government Run Insurance Company Breaks the Law or Breaches a Contract, How do you Prosecute or Sue the Federal Government?
Oh and How Ironic is it that it was a "Chicago" Judge that Dismissed the case...

China's concerns about the reckless spending of the U.S. and the uncertain future of the Dollar have led to this move. China is so uncertain about the future of the U.S. Currency that they are openly pushing for a new World reserve Currency.

The Government Insurance Won't Put Private Insurance Out of Business : But If Government Run GM Puts Private AutoMakers Out of Business..It's OK
The Government Owned and Run General Motors(GM) is offering advances to it's Dealers that participate in the Government Cash for Clunkers Program. Other Dealerships that are Not Owned by the Federal Government are still not receiving their Money and Many are pulling out of the Government Program all together.
This move threatens to put out of Business the Other Private Automakers/Dealerships that refuse to participate in the Program because Consumers will Flock to the GM Government Supported Dealerships that are participating in the Program. Dealers like Ford, Toyota and others will Either Go Broke Trying to participate in a Program that doesn't pay them, or Go Broke by Not Participating and allowing Customers to Go To The Government Subsidised GM Dealerships.
But remember, just because this "Unfair Government Competition" may put Private Automakers/Dealerships out of Business....
The President promises to Not Do it to Your Private Health Care Insurance....

When the President Needs the Support for the Pivotal Issue of his Presidency, it appears that his "Army" of supporters are no where to be seen. For Weeks, the Citizens that have stood against the Health Care Bill have Filled Town Halls and made National News, while the President's supporters have been watching from the comfort of their couches. Only after the President pulled a Move worthy of any "Astro-Turf" movement and called out his supporters to show up to Town Halls, did his "Army" Materialize.
So now the President is trying to "Light a Fire" under his "Army". One of those ways is the Meeting that I blogged about with Organization for America, as Mr. Klein Describes:
"Intensity of support has rarely been President Obama’s problem. But he’s seeking to bring some passion back to his army -- among the critical missing pieces in the battle for health care reform.
And so the president is back to looking for allies. His 1:10 pm ET appearance on Michael Smerconish’s radio program, live from the White House, might bring some skeptical questioners.
Then it’s on to a 2:30 pm ET online forum set up by Organizing for America -- with the message that it’s time to get, well, organized. “This is an incredible opportunity to huddle with the President, ask questions, and discuss how we're going to pass real health insurance reform this year,” OFA director Mitch Stewart wrote in an e-mail to supporters Thursday morning."
Many in the Real Grass Roots movement that oppose the President's Plan have wondered if their Genuine outrage is having an effect on the "Ruling Class" in Washington. According to Mr. Klein, they have been having an Effect:
"Think the town halls haven’t mattered? Whether this is political cover or a genuine conversion, the upshot is the same:
“Sen. Charles E. Grassley, a key Republican negotiator in the quest for bipartisan health-care reform, said Wednesday that the outpouring of anger at town hall meetings this month has fundamentally altered the nature of the debate and convinced him that lawmakers should consider drastically scaling back the scope of the effort,” Lori Montgomery and Perry Bacon Jr. write in The Washington Post.
And another voice for a piecemeal approach? “LBJ made it very clear a half a loaf is better than no loaf at all,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., said Wednesday. “We should do what can be done immediately and use the time between now and 2013 to figure out how to do the rest.”
While the Town Halls have been getting the Attention of those in Washington, they still seem to not truly understand the Word ,"No."
"No" does not mean pass only half of it, "No" means NONE of it. Even if those in Washington "Scale Back" their Plans for Government Health Care, those that voted for it will find themselves unemployed come election time.
But then again....Why should they care...
Either way they Get their Health Care Coverd by us...For Life....
