It's not funny when so -called scentific advisers openly entertain throwing the polluting particles into the upper atmosphere to 'reflect the radiation'. That's lunacy. Lunacy should not be discussed. Mind you, I repeat: those people are the enemies of the US and Humanity and are to be confined to the asylum.

It's not funny when we have suddenly the pandemia of all kinds of ' Corpses'. Energy Corps, AmeriCorps, this Corps, that... Our country does not need Corpses. It needs big projects, serious rebuilding, jobs associated, empowering local governments, lower property taxes and good safety net. It needs universal healthcare. It needs our National Guard to come home. It needs peace. It needs lower tuition fees. It needs national K-12 education system. It needs the transfer to the SI system of measurements. It needs leaving the farmers alone. It does not need the ' community organizing' paroxism. It needs better cadres in all branches of the already available power to reorganize itself. It needs the transfer of power from the interests to the public. It needs honest people at the helm.

It's not funny when we have billions spent on Homeland SS and DNI and the only result is harm to our nation. And no end to this harm in sight.

It's not funny when we suddenly see the vehement hurry in the Immigraiton reform. True, we need to legalize those people and we need to do it properly. But what has to be done first and foremost is to create a mutual body with all parties to discusss the current situation, particularly what is legal and what is not, who is 'illegal' etc. Takes time. Are there really 12 million? Who counted? We need to start working on that dilligenlty and slowly, maybe startting by putting a moratorium on deportation while enabling the police to arrest the criminals no matter what. Those people are not illegal- technically they are Mexican and/or citizens of other countries; we need to consider that too.

It's not funny when our President virtually wants to 'dump' the innocent victims off the Gitmo abuse to Skid Row- whoever takes them and whatever is done to them. Those people have rights. How about listening to their wishes?

It's not funny when our President asks for $83 billion dollars to expand the CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY- the war in Afghanistan.

None of this is funny. I am not even talking the bailout of the Wall St. and the total betrayal of the core industries of the country. Michelle Obama can dig her potholes as much as she wants; very soon Washington DC will have no air to breath because of the stench of malice.


I am Mark Sashine and I approve this message.
