This Supreme Court Ruling will decide if State and Local Gun bans can be struck down as Violating the 2nd Amendment.
That is easy, Of course they can...
The Constitution is the law of the Land. Period.
But I would not expect the Ruling to go the way of the Constitution. Do you?
"We’ll have a military dictatorship fairly soon, on the basis that nobody else can hold everything together."
Mr. Vidal follows that up with:
“Don’t ever make the mistake with people like me thinking we are looking for heroes. There aren’t any and if there were, they would be killed immediately."

As you can see from the above Picture, the Ultimate Ready Evac Kit comes with everything you will need to survive for 3 Days, including Toilet Paper. I have augmented this Kit by purchsing extra Food and Water plus a Backpakers Tent. The Tent that comes in the Kit is a temporary Plastic Tent that will work in a pinch but I prefer something a little more Sturdy.
Think of Emergency Supplies as Your Insurance against Emergencies. Because right now you may not want to pay the Money to Buy Long term Food Stores or a "Go bag". But if an Emergency Happens and your Family is Starving...What Wouldn't you Pay to Feed them then?
I will Never Endorse any Product that I do not believe in and have not tried myself. But the Ready Store has always treated me with respect and have prompty shipped every order.
I try very hard to not clog up my website with alot of Ads, that is becasue personally I hate Ads when I am surfing the web. I try to limit My Ads to Things I Sell Directly or Companies I really beleive in. Because if I endorse something and it is not what it claims, then my reputaion suffers and I may lose you as a reader.
Which is why I have no Problems endorsing The Ready Store, they have yet to let me down.
So if you are in the Market for Emergency Supplies, all that I ask is that you Give The Ready Store a Chance. They won't let you down.
Feingold To Hold a Judiciary Hearing on "Examining the History and Legality of Executive Branch 'Czars'”
"Earlier this month the liberal lawmaker asked the White House to identify the czars' "roles and responsibilities, and provide the judgment(s) of your legal advisors as to whether and how these positions are consistent with the Appointments Clause" in Article II, section 2 of the Constitution, which states that the President "shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States."
Somehow this just reeks of "Justification" for the Presidents Huge Number of Czars.
Funny though that Russ would call them Czars, the White House specifically asked Glenn Beck to call them 'Advisers'.
I guess Russ didn't get the memo.

Time for Civil Disobedience
September 28, 2009 by Healthcare-NOW!
Filed under Healthcare-NOW! Updates
We need your support for a new campaign of non-violent, civil disobedience targeting the private health insurance industry.
This past spring, 13 brave individuals were arrested for disrupting Senate Finance hearings on health reform, chaired by Sen. Max Baucus. They were disgusted with witness panels, filled with private insurance execs and their cronies, that did NOT include even one single-payer expert.
Since Baucus only listened to the interests of millionaire CEOs and their lobbyists, it should be no surprise that a former CIGNA exec. called the Senate Finance Committee’s recently released bill, “a gift to the private health insurance industry that should be renamed the ‘Insurance Industry Profit Protection and Enhancement Act.’”
We can’t stand for this disaster. The Mobilization for Health Care for All is launching a campaign of nonviolent sit-ins at insurance company offices so we can stand up to end a system that profits by denying people care and puts insurance company bureaucrats between doctors and patients. Time for Medicare for all, a single-payer, national healthcare system.
Healthcare-NOW! has decided to support this effort, and to encourage local coalitions in our network that are ready and willing to participate.
The PHIMG (Private Health Insurance Must Go) coalition in NYC will begin this campaign on September 29th. Other local groups are planning subsequent actions.
Actions may vary, but the central idea is to target major private insurance companies because they must not, and can not, be part of any solution to our healthcare crisis.
We need your help. Let us know if you’d like to participate in, or organize, a civil disobedience action near you.
Go here to sign up to sit in and join the nonviolent resistance today!
Another way you can help make this campaign successful is with a donation.

Thanks for all that you do,

The Senate today is expected to introduce a Bill very similar to the Cap and Trade Bill that the House passed earlier in the Year.
According to an Article in Reuters:
"The Senate Democrats' draft legislation, which was circulating on Capitol Hill, embraces major elements of a controversial bill that passed the House of Representatives in June.
Both bills would establish a "cap and trade" system for replacing dirty, polluting fossil fuels with cleaner solar, wind and other alternative energies to power factories and oil refineries and to produce electricity.
Under cap and trade, carbon dioxide emissions would drop and companies would be allowed to sell to each other the pollution permits that would control those emissions."
Round 1 on Health Care isn' t even done being fought yet and now we have to get Ready for Round 2- Cap and Trade.
Get out the Cold weather Gear and the Protest Signs, this is going to be a Long Winter.

Luckily, some concerned Parents Voiced their displeasure enough that the Principle ordered the 5th Grade Teacher to Not Perform the Song. But the Fact that it was going to happen, or was even considered, is deeply concerning. Especially when you read the Lyrics.
Here are the Lyrics to the Song Titled : "Dear Obama"
(Solo – spoken)
This is a letter to Barack Obama…it’s our way of saying thank you.
(Solo – spoken)
Thank you for showing me that no doors are closed.I have the power to control my own future.

You have given us strength, courage and hope.And for that we all say Thank You!
Dear Obama, Hear us sing
We’re ready for the change that you will bring.
Going to shine the light for the world to see, to spread peace hope and democracy.
The time is now bring our troops home. Iraq can stand strong on its own.
And fight for healthcare for the young so that coverage is available for everyone.
And it’s time to find renewable ways to fuel our needs, so we don’t depend on Chavez and the Middle East.
We’ve got to stand up tall for the middle class and regulate the businesses that in the past got away with no oversight.
Doing things that were not right.
Giving loans and bad advice, expecting us to pay the price.
The change we need should begin today and Barack we stand behind you as you lead the way.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
You’ve broken down doors
No limits anymore
We all agree that Yes We Can
Dear Obama we must unite and pull together members of the left and the right
With terror threats bringing fear we hope our world you will soon hear
Diplomacy in Islaamabaad and please control Ahmidinejad. With Hillary Clinton as your Secretary of State, your team has the opportunity to make.
The world will see us with adoring eyes. And our popularity will rise. Please pay off all our debts to China, and strengthen our forces against Al-qaeda. You have the power to change education, giving our public schools some dedication.
Raising up teacher pay
Improving Schools in every state
So every child can truly make it, in the steps that you have created.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
You’ve broken down doors
No limits anymoreWe all agree that

And today is a new day where we can all see a new hope for our country.And we know that all along your journey, people say mean things to you and about you. But you never gave up and that gives us strength to never give up. You are more than a President. You are a role model, a father figure, and a man we can all look up to, and for that we say Thank You.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
Dear Obama – ba, ba, ba – Obama.
You’ve broken down doors
No limits anymore
We all agree that Yes We Can

Sincerely, every child, every family, everyone…
Barack Obama – We Thank You!"
Can You say Hell NO!
The Fact that this is becoming so wide spread is Very Disturbing.
I suggest that parents that are reading this, may want to contact your Child's School to verify this type of Indoctrination is not taking place. It is more than time to get heavily involved with what they are teaching your kids at school.

The White House, The Empire State Building and Communist Cuba Celebrate 60th Anniversary of Communist China
What do all of these things have in common?
They are all being done to celebrate the Communist Takeover of China 60 years ago on October 1st, 1949.
I find it interesting that the only other Countries that are celebrating the Communist Anniversary are Communists/Socialist in nature.
What does that tell you about this country or it's Future?
Here is the Cuban News Agency Article:
"Since the foundation of the People’s Republic of China sixty years ago, on October 1st, 1949, the economy of this nation, under the direction Chinese Communist Party, has become a model of prosperity.
This Asian country has turned into a key driving force for the planet’s economic development. For example, from 1979 to 2007, it registered an annual economic growth of 9.8 percent, which is 6.8 percent higher than the world average; and its contribution to the global economy increased from 2.3 percent in 1978 to 14.5 percent in 2006, only behind the United States.
Thanks to its enormous development, China plays an important role in the main international markets and its influence increases by the day. For many experts, its economic success is almost a miracle in Asia and the world.
In this regard, during an exclusive interview with the Cuban News Agency, the Chinese Ambassador to Havana, Zhao Rongxian, said, “The Chinese people have chosen the path of Socialism because we believe that it is the most convenient and advisable one as it responds to the needs of the historical process of China. Only Socialism can save and promote its development. Our goal is to build a prosperous, civilized, democratic and harmonious country.”
And, indeed, the Chinese people have plenty of reasons to celebrate when we look back at the past six decades of this country, the most populated of the planet with more than 1.3 billion inhabitants, and the fourth regarding territorial extension.
During the past sixty years, what used to be a poor and backward nation has become a prosperous and powerful country, respected by the main western capitalist powers.
Ambassador Rongxian explained that after the foundation of the People’s Republic of China, during the 1949-1980 period, they went from a planned economy to a process of opening-up and reform that allowed them to establish a so-called market socialist economy.
“We believe that this system can revitalize and bring new dynamics to the economy and the social and economic development of the country,” he stressed.
After recalling the existence of active foreign forces against a prosperous and powerful China, the diplomat added that the strategic program designed in the early 1980s until the year 2050 aims at transforming the highly populated socialist State into a country of middle development.
In fact, all expectations have been far exceeded and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita quadrupled from 1980 to 2000. In this respect, Rongxian said that while the goal for 2020 is to reach $3,200 of income per capita, last year the figure was $3,000.
“We want a more comfortable society for our people and we are convinced that we are on the right track,” he added.
According to institutions of the Asian nation, China’s GDP in 2008 was 400 times higher than in 1952 and its economy was the fourth in the world (above Italy, France and the United Kingdom).
Meanwhile, the Chinese diplomat noted that the current world financial and economic crisis also affected the development of his country, which carried out a series of measures to make its economy more dynamic.
In this regard, he explained that the Chinese central government implemented a package of economic stimulation amounting to four trillion yuans ($584 billion) to promote domestic demand and to maintain a rapid and steady rise in the current context.
Rongxian stated that during the first half of the year, they reached an economic growth of 7.1 percent and they are convinced that they will finish 2009 with an annual growth of 8 percent.
Of course, we remain loyal to the principles of Marxism-Leninism, the socialist system and the leadership of the Communist Party with the people at the center of our attention.

According to an Article in Reuters, the Administration has cleared 75 of the 223 Guantanamo Prisoners for Release in it's effort to hurry up and Close the Prison. The Review Team, appointed by the Administration, at Guantanamo is:
"examining each prisoner's case to decide who will be held for trial and who can be sent home or resettled in other nations."
The irony of this is that quite a few of the Guantanamo Prisoners so far released have rejoined the Forces fighting Coalition Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Which makes senses since those in Guantanamo:
"Most were captured in Afghanistan and Pakistan after U.S. troops invaded Afghanistan in 2001 to oust al Qaeda in response to the September 11 hijacked plane attacks on the United States."

Priorities? School District Upset that Kids Singing Obama Song Were Video Taped, Not Upset that they were singing Brainwashing Song.
In what has to be the most screwed up set of Priorities, the Superintendent of Schools has said:
"We are carefully evaluating what occurred and will implement any additional needed procedures to prevent children's images in school from being publicly posted without permission," Manno wrote on Friday. "We will also provide reasonable direction and guidelines so that classroom activities will not give the appearance of promoting a particular political perspective."
Like the Wording of the Statement? First they are more concerned about the fact that they got caught. Second they are going to try and not give the "Appearance" of a political perspective.
How about Not Singing a Song about ANY Man that sounds like you are worshiping them as a god? Maybe that is what they should be concerned about...but somehow they missed that point.

According to an Article on ProJo. com, Kennedy said this at a 'Manufactured' Town Hall with the AARP:
“My family’s seen it up close too much with assassinations and violence in political life. It’s a terrible thing when people think that in order to get their point across they have to go to the edge of violent rhetoric and attack people personally,"
Kennedy is following in the Footsteps of Nancy Pelosi who warned a couple of weeks ago of Possible Violence due to the " Health Care Rhetoric".
It appears that this is a New Political Tactic of the Left in an Attempt to quiet Critics by scaring them into thinking that they will incite Violence.

PG&E Utility, Who's Senior VP of Public Affairs sits on the Board of the Apollo Alliance, Claims the U.S. COC has "Extremist Views on Climate Change"
PG&E sent this letter to the COC claiming Irreconcilable Differences:
"We find it dismaying that the Chamber neglects the indisputable fact that a decisive majority of experts have said the data on global warming are compelling and point to a threat that cannot be ignored. In our opinion, an intellectually honest argument over the best policy response to the challenges of climate change is one thing; disingenuous attempts to diminish or distort the reality of these challenges are quite another."
What was the Extreme View that the COC had on the Subject of Climate Change? Well according to the Article:
"theChamber’s late August challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency to hold a public hearing on the scientific evidence for human-induced climate change."
How Dare they! The U.S. Chamber of Commerce wanted to have a Public hearing on the Scientific Evidence on Climate Change!!! Thats CRAZY!
Why would PG&E have such an attitude over a Public Hearing? Well it is worthy to notice that the Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for PG&E just happens to be a Board Member of the Apollo Alliance. The Same Apollo Alliance that helped write the Stimulus Bill that President Obama Signed that created "Green Jobs".
No Conflict of Interest there huh?
So the Chamber of Commerce is questioning the one Key element that the Apollo Alliances whole movement is based on...and they are called "extremists".
Stand up to the Progressives...and be called an Extremist......

Drummund Pike, CEO of Tides Inc and 200 Other Ultra Rich Progressives Formed "The Wealth for the Common Good" to Promote 'Shared Prosperity'
These 200 Ultra Leftest formed a Group called "Wealth for the Common Good". This Group, according to the Webiste:
"Wealth for the Common Good is a network of business leaders, high-income households and partners working together to promote shared prosperity and fair taxation. Our membership includes entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, school teachers, engineers and elected officials of all backgrounds, political stripes and from all over the country.
Over the last 30 years, economic policies in America have slowly but surely shifted to disproportionately benefit the nation’s top earners. Wealth for the Common Good, which represents many of these individuals, was organized to help rebalance our economic system. Our goal is to contribute to the public debate on taxes and support President Obama and Congress in creating a more progressive tax code."
"Shared Prosperity' is another term for 'Wealth redistribution', which is a Communist Ideal.
What I find Ironic is that one of the Original Members of the "Wealth For the Common Good" is Drummund Pike. Drummund Pike is the Founder and CEO of Tides INC. , a Progressive Organization determined to "Change" the United States. George Soros, the Ultra Wealthy Leftest Progressive, has also served on the Tides INC Board.
Tides INC has a Division called the Apollo Alliance. The Apollo Alliance admits on it's website that they had alot to do with the 'American Recovery and Reinvestment Act' that was signed by President Obama. As you can read here, since they make no attempt to hide it on their Website, under their "Achievements" section:
"American Recovery and Reinvestment Act In February 2009
Congress approved and President Barack Obama signed the breakthrough clean energy and green-collar jobs provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The $787 billion stimulus legislation that President Obama signed in a Denver museum partially powered by a rooftop solar array contains $86 billion in clean energy and green-collar job programs, plus $27.5 billion in road and highway construction funds, much of which state transportation departments will use to repair infrastructure and not on building new highways. As Apollo noted since the package was introduced on January 15, the provisions that formed a big part of the foundation of the stimulus was funding to build new transit and high speed rail lines, weatherize homes, develop next generation batteries for clean vehicles, scale up wind and solar power, build a modern electric grid, and train a new generation of green-collar workers. In every way, the clean energy provisions of the stimulus bill are a surpassing achievement. The magnitude of the investment and the bill’s comprehensive sweep reflect the unleashing of a pent-up demand for a new way to power and employ America — $17.7 billion for rail development, $34 billion for energy efficiency, $7.9 billion for renewable energy, $10.9 billion for a smart electric grid, $3.3 billion for next generation batteries and alternative fuel vehicles, $4.5 billion for energy research. The clean energy focus of the stimulus was inspired by the Apollo Alliance’s vision, and the specific content of many of the bill’s provisions was influenced by policy proposals that the Apollo Alliance made last year in The New Apollo Program and the Apollo Economic Recovery Act. “The recovery bill represents the focused work of labor, business, environmental and social justice organizations who developed a clear strategy about where the nation needed to go, and worked together to achieve it,” said Phil Angelides, former California treasurer and chairman of the Apollo Alliance. As Senator Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, noted in a statement. “We’ve talked about moving forward on these ideas for decades. The Apollo Alliance has been an important factor in helping us develop and execute a strategy that makes great progress on these goals and in motivating the public to support them.”
Wealth for the Common Good now has 1,000 Ultra Wealthy Progressives that have signed on to promote "Shared Prosperity".
I guess the President does Bend to the Will of "Special Interests"...Especially Ultra Left and Ultra Rich ones......

President Obama claims that Kids need to go to School longer because Kids in other Countries Go to School Longer. That is an Outright Lie. Even the AP in the Article Points out that the Other Countries that are doing better than the U.S. in Education Do Not Have their Kids spend more time in School:
"Kids in the U.S. spend more hours in school (1,146 instructional hours per year) than do kids in the Asian countries that persistently outscore the U.S. on math and science tests — Singapore (903), Taiwan (1,050), Japan (1,005) and Hong Kong (1,013). That is despite the fact that Taiwan, Japan and Hong Kong have longer school years (190 to 201 days) than does the U.S. (180 days)."
So if the President is lieing about Why we should send our Kids to School longer, then what is his Real Motivation? Well History tells us the Answer....
For a Communist/Progressive Government to succeed it must take the Job of Raising Children away from the Parents. That would involve banning Homeschooling(Which has already been done in most European Countries) and making sure that All Kids Must be removed from the influence of their Parents. Short of seizing the Children and putting them into Boot camps(Or by having Your Kids be Forced into Government Service Programs by Mandatory 'Volunteering' which the Government tried to do at the Beginning of the Year in the "Service Bill"), the Next best thing is to make sure they spend more time during the day being Indoctrinated, all year around...Away from the Influence of their Parents.
But for some Readers, that Idea may seem to "Conspiratorial"......
Of Course in order to Believe that it's a 'Conspiracy' you would have to think that having your Kids Watch the Anti-Capitalist Video, the "Story of Stuff"(Which is in 7,000 Schools already), having Kids be forced to Sing Pro-Obama Songs(Like the School Kids in New Jersey) and Having the Government Teach Your Kids about Global Warming and the Environment(In a Program that is going around to 6,000 Schools) isn't Indoctrination.....

I will not make you suffer through the Communist Babbles of the Extremist Article, instead I went to the source.
The New York Times Columnist, David Brooks, wrote an op-ed piece Titled:
"No, It’s Not About Race"
Here is some of the Op-Ed Written by Mr. Brooks:
"You wouldn’t know it to look at me, but I go running several times a week. My favorite route, because it’s so flat, is from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol and back. I was there last Saturday and found myself plodding through tens of thousands of anti-government “tea party” protesters.
They were carrying “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, “End the Fed” placards and signs condemning big government, Barack Obama, socialist health care and various elite institutions.
Then, as I got to where the Smithsonian museums start, I came across another rally, the Black Family Reunion Celebration. Several thousand people had gathered to celebrate African-American culture. I noticed that the mostly white tea party protesters were mingling in with the mostly black family reunion celebrants. The tea party people were buying lunch from the family reunion food stands. They had joined the audience of a rap concert.
Because sociology is more important than fitness, I stopped to watch the interaction. These two groups were from opposite ends of the political and cultural spectrum. They’d both been energized by eloquent speakers. Yet I couldn’t discern any tension between them. It was just different groups of people milling about like at any park or sports arena.
And yet we live in a nation in which some people see every conflict through the prism of race. So over the past few days, many people, from Jimmy Carter on down, have argued that the hostility to President Obama is driven by racism. Some have argued that tea party slogans like “I Want My Country Back” are code words for white supremacy. Others say incivility on Capitol Hill is magnified by Obama’s dark skin.
Well, I don’t have a machine for peering into the souls of Obama’s critics, so I can’t measure how much racism is in there. But my impression is that race is largely beside the point."
Now Mr. Brooks goes on to say what he think the Tea Parties are about, while not overflattering, at least he has aditted we are not a Bunch if bigots.

Organizing for America has just sent out a E-mail encouraging their members to create a video explaining why the Current health Care system Sucks. It is a Contest where the Winner will get their Video shown on National T.V. in a Commercial.
In the E-mail it even admits that unless more People think the Health Care system is 'Broken' the less likely they are going to push for 'Change'.
Here is the E-mail:
"In many ways, the fight for health insurance reform comes down to a battle over information. The more people know about how broken the system is and the President's plan to fix it, the more they want change. But there are an awful lot of lies to cut through, and a whole lot of truth to get out.
So today, we're proud to announce a powerful new way for you to help: Organizing for America's Health Reform Video Challenge.This is your chance -- you ingenious, insightful, funny people out there -- to make a 30-second ad telling the story about why the status quo has got to go, or explaining how the Obama plan will ensure we get the secure, quality care we need without breaking the budget.
The top submissions will be voted on by the public and a panel of experts, with the winning ad aired on national television. This is your opportunity to add your voice and creativity to the debate, get some great exposure for your work, and make a huge difference.
Click here to get started.
No experience is needed -- if you have an idea, we want you to give it a shot. And if you know someone who is especially handy with a camera, please forward this note along right away. Just make sure you submit your ad by October 18th.
Your video could be as simple as you talking straight into the camera, as complex as a full-blown production with a script and special effects, or anything in between.
We're looking for serious videos: You can tell your personal story about how the broken health insurance system has affected you. You can illustrate the big picture about what's wrong now and how the President's plan will help with animations, charts, and facts.
We're looking for funny videos: You can parody those trying to scare us into inaction (between the lying pundits and the insurance company spin doctors, they've given us some good stuff to work with).
And we're looking for new ideas we never would have thought of but we know will blow us all away.
We know that compelling videos can touch people in a way that words alone simply cannot. The messages that regular people put together will make a bigger difference than any false smears or slick ads the other side can dream up. And who knows -- your creative, powerful, or touching video could help tip the balance in favor of health reform.
So go get started today!

In the Study done by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in conjunction with the Scottish National Heritage, has Found:
"seven species were found less often than would be expected close to the turbines. The breeding population of buzzard, hen harrier, golden plover, snipe, curlew, wheatear and meadow pipit were reduced by up to half within 500m of the turbines. "
The cause of the Decline, they suggest is:
"the fact that birds are less likely to live near wind farms because of the noise and development, therefore the number of predators will also decline. Strikes with turbines was also suggested as a cause, but was thought to be less likely."

“There is no longer an Anglo-Saxon world and a European world,”
So I guess all that Leaves is "One World".

President Obama, take a Lesson from a Real Leader of a Free Nation:
Shame on You President Obama...Shame.
The Definition of Government, according to Webster's dictionary is:
1 : the act or process of governing; specifically : authoritative direction or control
It appears that the Countries in the G20 are in the Process of setting up an "Economic World Government". They are going to accomplish this by agreeing to an "Economic Charter".
According to the Telegraph.uk, by signing this document the Countries in the G20 will agree to:
1. submit their economic policies for review to ensure that they were moving in line with the direction set by the G20.
2. that the one trillion dollar ''fiscal stimulus'' package to support the flagging global economy, which was agreed by the G20 in London last April, would continue until ''a durable recovery is secure''.
3. that the bonuses paid out by banks - blamed by many for fuelling the culture of excessive risk-taking which led to the financial crisis - should be linked to their revenues.
4. to French and German calls for work to begin on preparing co-ordinated ''exit strategies'' to rein back stimulus measures once the recovery is in place.
These are just some of the known stipulations of this " Economic Charter". This was not voted on by anyone in the United States or Congress. This is an Agreement Made by One man who would be King of America.
This "Economic Charter" will have ramifications that effect every single citizen, but yet there is nothing in the Constitution that allows this type of agreement. This is not a Treaty, nor has it been presented as such.
Our President just agreed to Limit a Free American's Pay, along with other Countries, based upon their Income and Job title. Our President just agreed to "Submit Our Economic Plans" for the Approval of the G20, Not the Approval of the American People. And the "President, Not Congress or the American people, Just agreed to Continue to Run this Country into the Ground Fiscally, for the Good of the World, because the other Countries think it's Necessary.
If that is not A Form of Dictatorship..then what is?
This is Global Government. It is No Longer a Conspiracy Theory....
It is Reality...

"Nearly 20 young children are captured in an online video as they sing songs that overflow with campaign slogans and praise for "Barack Hussein Obama," as they repeatedly chant the president's name and celebrate his accomplishments, including his "great plans" to "make this country's economy No. 1 again."
The kids, who were videotaped at B. Bernice Young Elementary school in June, according to a YouTube posting, sing lines including: "He said we must be clear today/Equal work means equal pay."

Here is the Video:
The Section of the Article that Fact Checks some of Michael's Moore's Claims shows that Mr. Moore doesn't always tell the Whole Story. As if We already didn't know that.....
Here is some of the Article:
MOORE'S TAKE: Wall Street robbed taxpayers.
It's pure theater when Moore arrives in an armored bank truck at the headquarters of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Holding a white bag with a big dollar sign on it, he tells a security guard he is there to collect the $10 billion in taxpayers' funds that went to the investment bank. He doesn't get past the front door.
THE FACTS: Three months after that scene was shot, Goldman Sachs was one of 10 large banks that repaid in June some $68 billion they received from the $700 billion Troubled Assets Relief Program. Since then other large financial companies have repaid funds, too, including Chrysler Financial and American Express Co.
Still, many large banks haven't repaid the TARP money. Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp. each received $45 billion and have yet to repay those funds.
Not all of the $700 billion in TARP funds have been disbursed. The total peaked at $425 billion.
MOORE'S RESPONSE: "Let's be clear on this. We're not talking about the majority of people who took the money ... not even 10 percent of the $700 billion has been returned."
MOORE'S TAKE: You're better off dead -- at least that's how some companies view their workers.
THE FACTS: Moore highlights an ugly truth about insurance policies that benefit companies, not the employees, when workers die. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is scathed for its use of such "dead peasant" policies. Moore notes how the sudden death of a 26-year-old former Wal-Mart worker resulted in a $81,000 life insurance payout to the retailer.
But it's never mentioned in the body of the film that in 2000 the world's largest retailer canceled all 350,000 of these policies it took out on employees between 1993 and 1995.
MOORE'S RESPONSE: No misrepresentation here, he says: Wal-Mart's termination of the insurance policies is included in a 7-minute-long presentation of facts and quotes on different issues relating to the movie shown in the closing credits.
MOORE'S TAKE: Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., and other government officials unfairly and hypocritically benefited from financial programs not available to all.
Moore asserts that Dodd received more than $1 million in discounted loans for being a "Friend of Angelo," referring to Angelo Mozilo, the former CEO of Countrywide Financial Corp. That lender, which was heavily involved in the subprime-mortgage business, was sold last year to Bank of America.
Also, Moore highlights that as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Dodd has oversight over the mortgage and banking industries and has been critical of predatory lending.
THE FACTS: Dodd has acknowledged that he participated in a VIP program at Countrywide, refinancing loans on two homes in 2003. One was a 30-year adjustable rate loan for $506,000 with an interest rate of 4.25 percent and a fee of 0.45 percent. He also got a 30-year adjustable rate mortgage for $275,042 with an interest rate of 4.5 percent and a fee of 0.73 percent.
Both interest rates and fees were within industry norms for that time, according to data provided to the AP by Bankrate.com.
Last month, the Senate's Select Committee on Ethics cleared Dodd and Kent Conrad of North Dakota of getting special treatment on the mortgages. But the bipartisan panel also said the senators should have "exercised more vigilance" in their dealings with Countrywide to avoid the appearance of sweetheart deals.
MOORE'S RESPONSE: "Why wasn't (the ethics panel's ruling) in this film? Because the story isn't over.
"I would hope that the Justice Department doesn't just let this drop," Moore said. Moore is calling for an investigation into how the loans were made, "not just to Senator Dodd, but to all those in both the Clinton and Bush administrations that benefited from this."

This refusal to formally meet with the Prime Minister alone is seen by many as an insult and undermines the Mr. Brown's Popularity at home.
Instead of a Face to Face sit down meeting with the President, Gordon Brown had to settle for an impromptu meeting in the U.N. Kitchen. According to the Article:
"a British diplomat told The Daily Telegraph that the White House's refusal to meet Mr Brown had been a serious embarrassment for the Prime Minister."
It's interesting to see that the President of the Free World is willing to sit down with Communist Dictators or Muslim Extremist Thugs that Insult Israel, but refuses to sit down and talk with the Prime Minister of our Greatest and Longest Ally.
That says alot about the President......

"The Serious Obama
By Fidel Castro
Bolivarian President Hugo Chavez really made a clever remark when he referred to the “riddle of the two Obamas.” The serious Obama spoke today [Sept. 22].
Recently, I recognized two positive features in his behavior: his attempt to make healthcare available to the 47 million Americans who don’t have access to it, and his concern for climate change.
What I said yesterday about the imminent threat to the human species could sound pessimistic but it is not far from reality. The views of many Heads of State on the ignored and neglected issue of climate change are still unknown.
As the representative of the country hosting the United Nations High Level Meeting on the subject, Obama was the first to express his opinion. What did he say? I’ll refer to the substance of his remarks.
- He said that he recognizes that the threat on the planet is serious and growing.
- That history will pass judgment on the response to this environmental challenge.
- That there is no nation, big or small, that can avoid the impact of climate change.
- That there is a daily increase of the high tides lashing against the coastlines while more intensive storms and floods are threatening our continents.
- That the security and stability of every nation are in danger.
- That climate has been placed at the top of the international agenda, from China to Brazil, from India to Mexico, Africa and Europe.
- That these can be significant steps if we are all united.
-That we understand the seriousness of the situation and are determined to act on it.
-That we were not there to celebrate any progress.
- That much remains to be done.
- That it will not be an easy job.
- That the most difficult part of the road is ahead of us.
- That this is happening at a time when to many the priority is to revitalize their economies.
- That we all have doubts about the climate challenge.
- That difficulties and doubts are no excuse to act.
- That each of us should do his share so that our economies can grow without endangering the planet.
- That we should turn Copenhagen into a significant step forward in the climate debate.
- That we should not allow for old divisions to jeopardize the united quest for solutions.
- That the developed nations have caused most of the damage and should thus take responsibility for it.
- That we shall not overcome this challenge unless we are united.
- That we know that these nations, particularly the most vulnerable, do not have the same resources to combat climate change.
- That the future is not a choice between economic growth and a clean planet because survival depends on both.
- That it is our responsibility to provide technical and financial assistance to these nations.
- That we are seeking an agreement that would enhance the quality of life of the peoples without disturbing the planet.
- That we know that the future depends on a global commitment.
- But that it is a long and tough road and we have no time to make the journey.
The problem now is that everything he has said contradicts what the United States has been doing for over 150 years, especially from the moment – at the end of World War II – when it imposed to the world the Bretton Woods accord and became the master of the world economy.
The hundreds of military bases set up in scores of countries in every continent; their aircraft carriers and Navy fleets; their thousands of nuclear weapons; their wars of conquest; their military-industrial complex and their arms trade are incompatible with the survival of our species. Likewise, the consumer societies and the wastage of material resources are incompatible with the idea of economic growth and a clean planet. The unlimited waste of non-renewable natural resources – especially oil and gas accumulated throughout hundreds of millions of years and depleted in barely two centuries at the current rate of consumption – has been the major cause of climate change. Even if the unfriendly emissions of the industrialized nations were reduced, which would be commendable, it is a reality that 5.2 billion people on planet Earth, that is, three-fourth of the population live in countries that are still in various stages of development and will therefore demand an enormous input of coal, oil, natural gas and other non- renewable resources that, according to the consumption patterns created by the capitalist economies, are incompatible with the objective of saving the human species.
It would not be fair to blame the serious Obama for the above mentioned riddle of what has happened until today, but it would not be fair either to have the other Obama make us believe that humanity could be preserved under the prevailing rules of the world economy.
The President of the United States has conceded that the developed nations have caused most of the damage and should take responsibility for it. It was certainly a brave gesture. It would also be fair to concede that no other President of the United States would have had the courage to say what he has said.

From the Cuban News Agency"
Yep that is what I want, an Administration that is Praised by a Communist Dicator....
Wow.. The World has turned upside down.
In St. Louis this week, there was just such a Protest held in front of Wellpoint in down town St. Louis. The event was touted as a "Grass Roots" protest, except for the fact that one of my fellow bloggers got video footage of someone handing out pre-made signs. A Picture of One of the only Hand Made signs at the event was used in an Article written by one of the Communists, that's Right, Communists that attended the Protest.
What many people do not realize is that Progressives are actually Communists. They don't claim that title and the History of Progressivism tends to skip over the Fact that the Founders of 'Progressivism' where former Communists, but in fact their Beliefs go hand in hand with Marxism.
I will not Post the Communist Leftest Drivel here, but the Article does claim that there were 300 People at the Protest. The Photographer and blogger that I know that attended this protest says that maybe 100 people showed up, maybe.
So for all of you Leftest type folks going to these Pro Government Health care events, look around, you may be standing next to the Guy that takes your Picture and before you know it you'll appear in an Article in the Communist News.
Then again...that may not Bother you....

That's Ironic, normally they would use Tax Payers money to pay for the President's Propaganda. Oh well, maybe they are "changing" after all, here is the E-Mail:
"Over the past few months, two things have become clear about the fight for health insurance reform:
1. Our opponents will create and spread outrageous lies to try to stop President Obama from creating real change.
2. We just can't count on the media to debunk them.
As President Obama described recently:
"If somebody puts out misinformation... then the way the news report comes across
is, "Today, such-and-such accused President Obama of putting forward death
panels. The White House responded that that wasn't true." And then they go on to
the next story. And what they don't say is, "In fact, it isn't true."
We've already made historic progress, and momentum is now on our side. We'll be able to keep moving forward if all Americans know the real facts about reform.
So we'll need to double our own efforts to get the truth out. That means more organizers running door-to-door canvasses and phone banks to educate our neighbors, more events to spread the word to Congress, and more ads on the air to counter the smears. And we'll need the money to pay for it all.
Please chip in $25 or more to make it happen.
There's no doubt that the better people know the facts, the more they support reform. Real reform will bring stability and security to those who currently have insurance, provide affordable coverage to those who don't, and bring costs down throughout the system -- all without adding a dime to the deficit.
But our opponents' frightening smears can be pretty convincing too -- if folks don't know that they're false.
Stepping in when the media fails is a daunting challenge -- but this community has already come together and accomplished feats no one thought were possible. We did it for last year's election, and we're already doing it again as Organizing for America. In the three short months since we launched our first organizing drive for health reform, OFA volunteers have held more than 18,000 events in every part of the country to spread the truth about reform and the need for change.
We'll all need to step up to continue our amazing momentum -- and right now that means chipping in to make sure we can keep organizing hard to spread the truth and pass real reform in 2009.
Please donate $25 or more to get the truth out:https://donate.barackobama.com/MediaDonate

If this was Murder, who ever did it just sold all of us that are standing against Socialized Government down the River. This Man's Death will be used by those in the Government to Crack down, in some way, on all of us.
To the Idiot that May have Murdered this Innocent Man, I hope you Fry.
I don't care how Mad you Are at the Government, this kind of behavior is unacceptable. We are to March and Protest in the Way of Martin Luther King. Nothing Else can not be tolerated.
Mark My Words.. this will not go well for the Cause...The Government will use this to Prove that "Anti-Government" people are Nuts.
Except we aren't "Anti-Government" or Nuts, we are Normal Americans that just want a Return to 'Constitutional Government'.
Of Course.. to this Administration...that may be Nuts.

It has been said that a Smart man learns form his Mistakes, but a Wise man learns from the mistakes of others.
Let us all endeavor to be Wise.
I have been reading a very remarkable Book titled: 'John Adams and the American Revolution', written by Catherine Bowen in the year 1950. In it, I have discovered many a similarity to our current fight for the God given Liberties of Man and the Attitude of the Tyrants that wish to suppress them. Some similarities are barley noticeable while others stand out as if on fire. Here is one of those similarities that appears to be aflame.
In the year of 1773, Samuel Adams , John Adams and five others were entrusted with several letters of correspondence of the Royal Governor of Massachusetts, Thomas Hutchinson. These letters were acquired by Benjamin Franklin in Europe and sent to these Men in the Colonies. When Published, The Contents of these letters, and the Attitude the Governor portrayed in them towards the People of the Colony, helped to sever what love remained between the people and the Governor. One Section in Particular seemed to upset most of the colonials, here is that Section:
"I never think without pain of the measures necessary for the peace and good order of the colonies. There must be an abridgment of what are called English Liberties. I doubt it is possible to protect a system of government in which a colony 3000 miles distant shall enjoy all the liberties of the parent state."
For some, the Similarities between the past and the present are now clear. If not, please allow me to elaborate on such things so that it may become apparent to you as well.
Governor Hutchinson was arrogant in his belief that the Colonials must sacrifice some of their Liberties for the Good of the Government. He believed that Good Order and Peace where enough reason for this Destruction of the God Given English Liberties. Worse yet, he was Arrogant enough to think that he knew better than the Colonists. This attitude of arrogance and forced servitude has yet again been reborn in our politicians today.
Today we are being told that we can't Drive SUVs or have our Thermostat set to 73 Degrees because of the Environment. We Must suspend our Freed Choice to turn our Thermostat to any temperature we want or drive what vehicle we want, for the good of the whole.
Also we are being told to sacrifice our Property so that we can have a form of Government Health Care for the Good of All Americans. Again we are being told to Give up our Rights to Property for the betterment of the Whole.
These are just of the Few New onslaughts upon our Freedom for the Good of Society. But yet, somehow, again, the Rights of the Individual are being eroded and trampled into non-existence.
The Founders did not stand against Tyranny for the Good of the Whole, but for the Rights of Individual Englishmen.
Today, we do not Stand for the Good of the Society but for the God Given Rights of Individual Americans that are protected under the Constitution.
This is the Conflict that, yet again, we are forced to confront,
The Arrogant Aristocrats in Government Think the Good of the Whole Overrides the Liberties of the individual....
But as History shows...When a Free Man Stands up for His Individual Liberties......
He Will Not Stand Alone......
And Tyranny Will Not Prevail.
