WHAT THE PRESIDENT DID NOT SAY IN HIS STATE OF THE UNION MESSAGE It stands to reason that if our Senior Citizen's needed the $250.00 stimulus payment in the previous year of 2009, the need is still there for 2010, since prices continue to climb. The banks did not need to wait for inflation to receive their financial relief, so our Seniors should be no different.

Why The Auto Clunker Program Should Be Made Available To All Clunker Owners This clunker program will not help many of our low income working people or retirees who do not have the extra income at this time to pay the required monthly payment amounts to any auto dealership to participate in the present clunker program to purchase a new automobile, even though these are the same folks who now have the "TRUE" gasoline car guzzlers within their possession.

The National Cover-up In Regard To Wages, Inflation, and Taxation It is ironic that while our minimum wage working people are receiving a 10% wage hike, the CEO's wage incomes in the form of corporation bonus's are increasing 100% in the sum of millions of dollars for one entire year through price gouging and paying low wages at the retail sector while our U.S. Government looked the other way.

Why We Should Have An Economic Stimulus From The Bottom Up At the present time our U.S. Treasury Secretary has been throwing this $700 billion in all directions of the "business sector" to stimulate this economy.

SELECTING A WOMAN VICE PRESIDENT CANDIDATE Without a doubt I do believe that there is very much division in the Democratic Party particularly among women. In order to bring the Democratic Party back to its status quo, it is my hope that Barack Obama will therefore choose a women as his running mate in 2008.
