This evening brings in the New Year, and what a year it could be! The most important election of our lives is moving forward, corrupted and controlled by the MSM rather than the people - and to make a difference, people have to throw-off the MSM candidates which have already been hand-picked as “acceptable” to their goals and consider those that seriously challenge the “politically correct” statements which are being made by the rest of the Presidential contenders - none of which offer true change and a chance for Americans to reclaim their democracy and the rule of law:
Saturday, President Bush gave his regular radio address and assured Americans that even though it may seem rough right now, the economy is actually Ok, and even though it’s hard feed our families, a President with a “C Average” tells us all is well, while the facts paint an entirely different picture; on December 29, 2007, President Bush told the American people:
One of our greatest blessings as Americans is that we live in a country with a growing economy — where people can pursue their dreams, turn ideas into enterprises, and provide for their families. It is a measure of our economy’s resilience that even with high oil prices and softness in the housing market, we’re still growing. In November, our economy added jobs for the 51st straight month, making this the longest period of uninterrupted job growth on record. Unemployment is a low 4.7 percent. Exports are up. And the fundamentals of our economy are strong. LINK
They say the President doesn’t read the news very much, and I’d like to add that he also appears to ignore economic forecasts as well - and while the economy may be good for the 1% to 5% of our economy that is doing well for the upper class and corporate America, as usual, he has ignored the average American and appeared to be addressing his corporate sponsors and those he knows can whether any so-called “bumps” we may encounter - even if is means having a rough time feeding our families. This report was just released, and if this sounds like something to look forward to, then Bush is either drinking again, doing drugs, or is so caught-up in his own rhetoric that he is unable to discern truth from fact:
‘08 forecasts: food at least 3% higher; gas up 10.7%
By Karen Robinson-Jacobs
DALLAS — For cash-strapped consumers already beset by higher gasoline prices and escalating mortgage rates, the hits just keep on coming. This time, it’s food.
The sharp rise in food prices seen in 2007 is expected to be followed by another higher-than-normal jump next year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) said last week. And 2008’s punch will be to the breadbasket.
Items made with wheat (breads and crackers) and soybean oil (cooking oil and fried foods) are expected to rise so much next year that they’ll boost the cost of cooking at home by up to 4.5 percent — half a percentage point more than predicted just a month ago.
So pinched consumers thinking they can cut back by eating at home more will find little relief there. Home cooking remains less expensive than eating out, but the gap is closing. MUCH MORE
To make matters even worse, the Idiot In Chief has expanded ethanol production using corn as the basis for creating ethanol, which we already have an abundance of supply, and this will impact beef, pork, and dairy prices, which is one of the reasons that food is forecast to raise rapidly as less and less farmland is used to produce wheat, a staple in American diets and a commodity we should be stockpiling in the event of a natural disaster such as a severe drought or human to human transmission of the Bird Flu. Bush’s constant mismanagement of the American economy is a guarantee that the rich will become richer, and the poor and Middle-class of America will have to tough it out, even more so than we had to put-up this year. Rather than learning, it appears that the Commander in Chief is regressing, making it harder for the Average American to survive and keep food on the table, something he shows little or no concern of whatsoever!
No matter what happens, there are those of us on the Internet that will do our best to keep America informed of the truth, but even that’s proving to be a daunting task, and the Bush administration, content that they are always right and oblivious to disseminating the truth, will work overtime to corrupt and stop the free-flow of information that many depend on for their daily dose of news; Americans will have to be particularly aware of what they are reading, and as new sites emerge, many will find that truth and honesty will only be available on sites with a proven track-record, as the government understands that truth and facts are the enemies they face in their campaign to dismantle the American constitution and disseminate propaganda and misinformation:
