Today is the anniversary of the September 11th attacks on targets in Washington and New York. The theories put forth by the government do not make sense.  Osama Bin Laden, the alleged master mind of the attack, was murdered by US Special Forces on orders of the President of the United States. That, in and of itself, should tell you something. Osama Bin Laden was never charged with the crimes of September 11th, just as Lee Harvey Oswald was never charged with shooting the President of the United States.

No one was ever charged in connection with the strange shorting positions on Wall Street, of airlines involved in the World Trade Center attack. No one has yet to offer explanations as to why no one showed up for work at the Bulgarian Embassy, located inside the World Trade Center. These attacks have been used as reasons to justify war. They've changed the nature of the government of the United States and not for the better.

George W. Bush was elected twice under questionable circumstances. He left office the most reviled American President in history. He is a wanted war criminal and dares not leave the shores of the United States. Under these conditions, it was obvious no Republican candidate could replace George Bush. It was impossible. Out of the ether, as if delivered by UFO, enter Barack Obama, or as the press dubbed him, "No drama Obama." He was smooth, articulate and cool, he offered us hope and change and the hungry electorate went for it like a starving man after a ham sandwich.

You wait and see! That Mr. Obama, he's going to put things right. He supports a worker's right to join a union and he supports green energy. He's going to close Guantanamo and fix Wall Street! Need I go on? How else can you explain a candidate who has so completely kept his opponent's campaign promises? Obama is a shill. He is the most successful Republican President ever. No one's been prosecuted for the mortgage meltdown. Nothing's been fixed, only corporatized.

Obama-care is a bare bones version of Richard Nixon's 1972 health care plan. Obama-care funnels billions of public dollars to private corporations and on to stock holder's waiting hands. It's a sham and a scam, like most everything Obama has proposed. When the US government took an equity stake in General Motors, it effectively became a partner in the auto business. Then this partner sided against the unions, the suppliers and the states. That's not Socialism--that's Fascism!

We watched Obama's campaign against John McCain, where old "No Drama" faced down one of the most unpopular Republican candidates in history and his sock-puppet running mate. Traditionally, candidates get a bounce after their national convention, but after McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate, he got nothing. Palin couldn't wait to go out and show the public just how woefully unprepared she was. It was almost as if they didn't want to win.

Four years into the New Great Depression and ten years into permanent war, we hold another election. This time, the Republicans pick a one-term governor from a small state in New England as their nominee. He has the personality of John McCain, the articulate nature of Sarah Palin, and as an added bonus, he's a multimillionaire arbitrage pirate who made his mega-fortune by splitting up companies and putting people out of work. Then at the eleventh hour" a video is leaked.

"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. Alright, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what." ~ Mitt Romney

What a surprise! The Republican loses again, dag nab bit! That Socialist Obama is just too clever for them, and the Republicans hate him for his Socialist ways. They hate him for his support of nuclear power and expanded oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Why, do you know, after the Deep-Water Horizon disaster, the Obama administration tightened the paperwork requirements on oil companies. And because of all the fracking and oil drilling now going on in America, the price of a gallon of gas has remained just where the oil companies want it!

Corporate profits at record highs, share of the national wealth held by the 1% the highest since 1928. But wait, there's something's missing. Oh yeah. Jobs! This is a jobless recovery. Kind of like a lifeless cancer cure.


Officially unemployed -- 11,300,000

Marginally attached   --   4,300,000

Involuntary Part--Time -- 7,900,000

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
