Rising gasoline prices have very little to do with unrest in the Middle East

Here is the lastest news snip it putting forth largely bogus reasons for rising prices at the pump caused primarily by Wall Street Speculation:

Newspaper Announcement of Barak Obama's birth.

I had the pleasure of living in Hawaii for 6 years in the '50s. During that time I married and had my first child at Kapiolani Maternity Hospital in '57. Within a few days of her birth an announcement of her birth appeared in the Honolulu Advertiser along with all the other births that day, as well as all the marriages, and deaths. This information was put in the paper by the then territorial Bureau of Vital Statistics every day. I did not pay for it nor did I insert it. The same is true for Obama's family.

Trimming the Budget

Two budget items have cost, and continue to cost, the U.S. taxpayer billions yet get scant attention.

You’d think that if the Republicans were truly serious about cutting government spending they would have focused on U.S. aid to Israel and the expense involved in maintaining the International Space Station.

Most estimates peg the cost of the International Space Station to U.S. taxpayers at 100 billion and counting. NASA, not surprisingly, put the cost at much less.

Walker's Budget an Assualt on Environment

Wisconsin Governor Scott "Jackass" Walker is using his Budget Repair Bill to attack the environment. Here are just a few of his ideas from the Bill:

Big Smoke Hides Miccosukee Casino

Dade County, Florida- A brush fire along the Tamiami Trail in southwest Miami has caused the Micccosukee Casino there to disappear behind thick clouds of smoke. Fifty acres have burned so far, but it is felt a dirt road will protect the casino from the flames being fanned by strong winds from the east. Troopers will probably close down sections of S.W. 8th Street since you can't see a thing while driving and the air is dangerous to those with respiratory conditions.

Thomas Jefferson nailed it!

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies...

Citizens United Question

Wondering if this ruling strips states of the right to set limits and regulations for state elections. For example, Texas had regulations on corporate donations lead to the Tom Delay conviction, So does the ruling supercede the state laws for state elections, or is it just allowing corporations to side-step the issue by indirectly making or breaking a candidate by funneling money through the Chamber of Commerce and other groups, which then pay for ads?

Time to Rethink the War on Terror

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
