I am a Musician, political Junkie, Father, Husband, who cares very much about the United States of America and what is being done to the Ideals and citizens of this great Nation.

I want to restore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights to what the founders of this nation intended to protect us from.

I was born in Niagara Falls, N.Y. and I now reside in Florida. I am tired of the media being manipulated by Faux News and right wing propaganda that leading our Democracy into the moral and financial abyss.

I want the American people to wake up and take back this country to restore it to be a beacon of freedom and liberty to the world again.

Does America have long to remain a democracy? We have let the politicians dismantle the Constitution. They have broken the antitrust laws that Teddy Roosevelt put in place to protect us, and now we have the oil companies making the energy policies and the 6 giant media corporations controlling the information we receive on the main stream sources

How to become Governor of Florida throw the presidency to Buba and enrich your friends and family Jeb Bush Inc. (and for you who can't remember back to 2000 was the governor of Florida who handed Buba W the presidency beginning the great decline of the USA) isn't doing too bad these days.

The State of the Union 2011 Even though with both the left and right criticizing Obama he still has accomplished a lot and I believe he will do even more as we begin the second half of his first term. I wanted to vent in angry indignation in my writing how I was not satisfied with the progression of change but as I researched my point of view I have found that Obama hasn't done so bad after all.

The Federal Reserve, Zombie Banks, and Other Monsters We Need to Kill Well apparently Bloomberg News has given us another reason to get rid of the Federal Reserve. Lost in all the noise surrounding the "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" we have some news on financial reform. On March 19, Bloomberg won its lawsuit against the Federal Reserve for information that could expose which "too big to fail" banks in the United States are zombie banks not dead just merely rotting.

The only way that they can take the conversation from the issues that face the Nation like the war, health care, social security, and the economy, is by changing the subject.

The Best Way to House the Haitian Earthquake Refugees We have a humanitarian disaster bigger than the one already occurring on the ground in Haiti. When the rainy season comes, with all the tropical storms and hurricanes that come plowing through this area every summer, we can count on a disaster that could dwarf the death toll from this earthquake.

Low and behold I get from to reasonably normal and intelligent people to Ditto head dummies. From the Coultergeist calling Barack H.

Now let's see if Obama can unite a country in serious fiscal trouble. America faces several serious fiscal challenges. Deficits are running rampant, the economy has weakened, Social Security is unsound and Medicare health care spending is growing and will continue to put immense pressure on the budget. Borrowing by the federal government will reach unsustainable levels soon. The tax policy will need a major overhaul and Obama and congress will have to take steps to confront these issues.
