Campbell Brown sucks. Seriously can't you guys hire somebody who actually knows how to conduct an interview? If I were Ron Paul I'd never grant her another one! She doesn't know how to control her guests.

Sign of the times

 

As I drive by life opens up my eyes.

Where restaurants set and children slept,

The ghost of my community has arrived.

I see homes gone, vacant lots and foreclosure signs.

 

Is this the signs of the times? I ask myself.

That we, as mankind, must tighten our belts,

Downgrade our life styles due to lack of wealth.

 

As bums bum boots and cash in the cold playing the flute.

He has no place to go for he is a hobo.

Cast away from him neighborhood,

Lost it all in a world he understood.

 

“Will work for food” that’s what the sign said,

Reaching for some change I then placed in his hand.

He returned to the cement as I drove away,

Is this the signs of the times set as a permanent phase?

 

What once was a country fills much like crib,

Four rails around the side, little room to get by.

Recession got you stressin’ cause you can’t find a job.

Unemployment on the rise, the market declines.

 

Obama is change and change is something you can’t fold.

We must kick the bad habits we inherit and regain the gold.

When the market regains and people remain sane,

Where jobs are restored in community’s no longer ignored.

 

The signs of the time are visible; the signs of the times are us.

Rebuilding our nation and restoring trust.

Placing the needs of others before our own,

Help rebuilding this nation, this country we call home.

It seems common people cannot reach any one in power including the President – that is the main problem of America.  Only people with connections can reach people in position. Connection is the key to all appointments- not talents, knowledge.  We need some expertise from the people who served the Government in the past while we need more help from people who never worked in the Government to have a lot more to offer and insight at the problems.

 

I am happy that  the President and his administration is trying to get more legislation to rein the financial institutions. The failure of financial institutions where not the lack of regulations, but total incompetency of the executives who held and hold positions in the regulatory agencies. In addition to almost all of them is some way closely connected and net worked to the financial services industry executives – either they were the past executives of those institutions or they keep close ties in order to get positions when they leave the government.  How could these people then be impartial or serve the America.

 

There are enough regulations to mange the insurance companies. There are enough regulations to securely mange the banks. But where it failed? Why it failed?

 

Why did we allow so many mergers and acquisitions? None  of the mergers of banks produced any benefit to consumers, it did not produce employment- rather it decrease employment, it did not bring efficiency, what it did is generously rewarded the executives with unbelievable amount of money which belonged to the shareholders and customers and in turn it lead to a total disaster – unparalleled in the history.  Capitalism or socialism all needs some kind of regulations and enforcements without any exceptions. Why the government did allow  the mutual insurance companies to become publicly traded company?  A free market is nothing but a mess. What I see is when things are going well – capitalism – a few rich and powerful take the benefit, when economy goes bad – as it is now- applying the principal of socialism – and the society bear the burden – either way the average Americans are the victims.. Why not leave either everything to free market and take the brunt as it comes. Or let us have a moderated free market all the time.

 

All these can be solved and rectified. We do need an agency to examine the performance, the compliance to existing law and audit all the other agencies. And members of this agency must be clean.

 

Mr. President, why people like me cannot get an audience with you? You are available only to people who have connections?

I understand that the Federal Governments initiative of helping home owners in distress is only applicable to the clients of the banks who are the beneficiaries of the Bailout program.

 

If this statement is true, it is very discriminatory. Why all the tax payers take the hit for the incompetency, mismanagement, and members of a gang of greedy robbers who are at the helm of those institutions, yet they are being rewarded with bailout. Again, the people those who are funding the bailout program, the people struggling with their mortgages and who are not the clients of such institutions are ignored – and are further victimized.

Why do people act as if the president can communicate to everyone. Let's tink back eight years ago. In a world where talking to the President ment push a paper and pin. The president is one man with many missions. If you have concerns, like the president said, it starts from the bottom up. Start with your commissioners, mayors and governors. If they can't help you elect someone who will.

jpani, making MORE legilation isn't the cure.

 

If you say the execs didn't follow the current regs, what makes you think they will follow the new regs by Obama?

 

More regs, more regs, and more regs, = only more bureacracy, more costs to the taxpayer.

A documentation centre that provides for training and education. This is in a business association, business office and Learning Center.

The input of a theory of pure energy that is not a raw, but to fit in a case and is a battery generated electricity or a battery 2009 to become from the world batteries before to load up, when a battery 2009 CES is a Clean Energy Source and generate electricity is the different.

On the elaboration of an experiment shows that the magnet can be disposed of in a picture and picture can be made and confirmed to rotate around a bar magnet that can generate an inductor.

The operation of the improvement of the climate ensures that a picture with to the end, the magnets That can be taken of power inductor with a confirmation of this magnetic around the inductor rotate propelled by with the picture to the end this magnet.

Rotate a picture in the metal is a vacuum in the volume of the battery. Lettersize is a key word. This vessel in the cavity ensures that there is a place to the metal plate to turn around the picture has been confirmed to the magnet in the Middle revolves around the inductor to.

These end of the metal picture is also magnetic against a sticky side. but against the pushing power source, and vice versa can also be possible.

It has been proved in the experiment, so that the magnets placed on the right way. can be on the side of the empty volume to the inside of the battery a rotated plate from metal and magnets turn arround.

This can be magnets placed to each other when they are disposed of by this void in the picture to each ot essentialsprotect magnetic around in the copper wire that electricity is known that this can be easy, because there are 2 side

We can't reconcile so that it is always on top of each sale, thanks to the magnetic field of the various magnetics

also this pulling power from magnetics who each other don’t touch but the plate on his turn stays turning, but to experiment is to seek the best in this volume to be able to generate electricity in the battery.

This school children should not be able to absorb but rather as the VDAB but also in developing adults programme.

The recruitment of children to school for this purpose very late is possible and sure also needed for the next future on these other kind from energy, and the big chanche into electricity motors.

Make a training school for adults over 18 with or without a diploma from electricity but must have doing studie inside. and continue to be able to be recruited in the experimentatie and the Labour Party, which ensures that there should be developed and carried out safely.

To be guaranteed with the training of adults who are unemployed and in several training courses such as electricity have enjoyed a good developer will be taught.

The adoption of the initiatives being taken, i can, Frank Van Calster. Or leave it to the development process in this company.

In the activity, in the electronics research and development study will run

These multiple sides can also be more than a quick way to convince, with the necessary materials in the product of which this battery has been created, should be;.

Teachers, the materials: magnet (small as shown in the store) and different sizes) the purchase of this with the magnet, broker - dealer should be paid, as well as the ground. I have no money and go to the longest VLAO for land and a take over company stand at hire to take over the buildings

Funding agencies, and tables and chairs for the teachers and education, in theory, and magneto.

That can go to the workshop; that can be by the electronics and transport companies, to the work to be able to deliver training for members of the ...

 

In the building in a drawing can ensure a high technology development centre in connection with the purest energy that no more exhaust emissions.

The Act, it is precisely with this word, to invest in the correct battery and the appropriate agricultural vehicles and equipment can be argued with them. In other words, free energy for the farmer who use these tools on his vehicle.

The price for the energy after is buy for the energy producty on this technique will be ZERO and will not be delayed.

Obama's Fraudulent Filings

 

Tell All 50 State Attorneys General To Investigate NOW The Compelling Evidence That Barack Obama Was Born In Africa!

 

 

Dear Concerned Friend,

 

I dared bring Barack Obama into court to force him to produce his birth certificate and put an end to the controversy over his status as a "natural born" citizenship once and for all. And now he's coming after me and the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) -- the public-interest legal group that I founded over 30 years ago -- with a vengeance! Merely because we dare to seek the truth!

 

And they must have something to hide, because Mr. Obama's attorneys have threatened to spend, and then sanction, USJF out of existence.

 

USJF has started efforts to convince State Attorneys General, all across the country, to investigate whether Barack Obama has committed perjury by knowingly filing false nomination papers ... claiming to be constitutionally eligible to run for, and serve as, President of the United States. As you know, the available evidence shows that he was born in Africa. A FAX to all 50 State Attorneys General is available for you to send right now.

 

You see, even though it's past January 20, 2009 -- inauguration day -- Barack Obama can still be stopped from becoming an illegal "squatter" in the White House.

 

Frankly, the evidence that Barack Hussein Obama was born in Africa -- not Hawaii as he claims - and, therefore, cannot serve as the President of the United States, is compelling.

•     First, Mr. Obama's refusal to release his birth certificate. If he has nothing to hide, what does he gain by refusing to allow the press to see the birth certificate?

•     Second, the contention by Barack Obama's half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, that Mr. Obama was born in a particular Hawaiian hospital, only to claim that it was in a different hospital several years later.

•     Third, the erecting of a wall around Barack Obama's grandmother, the late Madelyn Dunham, by Mr. Obama, thus cutting off access to the one person then alive who would have been present if he was actually born in Hawaii.

•     Fourth, the posting of law enforcement personnel at the two hospitals in Honolulu mentioned by Ms. Soetoro-Ng in an effort to block the press from discovering the truth about the birth certificate.

•     Fifth, a taped phone conversation with Mr. Obama's step-grandmother in Kenya, who claims that she was present at his birth ... in what is now called Kenya!

•     Sixth, the "birth certificate" posted on the Obama campaign website and other liberal websites. Since Barack Obama was born in 1961, long before laser printers and office computers, his original birth certificate would be typewritten ... unlike the laser printed "copy" purported to be genuine.

The evidence demands that Barack Obama answer why he has been hiding the truth from the American people about his eligibility to run for, and serve as, President!

 

That's right. Not only does Mr. Obama continue to categorically refuse to produce the decisive evidence proving whether he is a "natural born" citizen, his high-priced LA-based "dream team" of attorneys has USJF squarely in its crosshairs! And they're loading both barrels!

 

So, unless you help me and my team here at USJF to stand our ground in court, Mr. Obama's hired guns could blow a financial hole in USJF's ability to be the proverbial thorn in Mr. Obama's side!

 

Barack Obama continues to battle any attempt to see his real birth certificate - producing only a phony one posted on his website -- as well as fighting us tooth and nail as we seek access to his college records... records which we believe may prove that he was foreign born!

 

USJF served a subpoena upon Occidental College to gain access to Mr. Obama's college records and we are fighting to get at the truth on many other fronts, as well, including:

1.     Appealing a case filed by USJF in California, all the way up to the United States Supreme Court, if necessary, on behalf of 2008 Presidential candidate Alan Keyes, calling into question Mr. Obama's status as a "natural born" citizen;

2.     Funding, and assisting local attorneys and Plaintiffs, in similar lawsuits, in Ohio, Hawaii, and Mississippi, AND we're considering filing more lawsuits in other states; and

3.     We have initiated a campaign demanding that your State Attorney General take action now, which I'll tell you about momentarily...

 

You see, when Barack Obama officially entered the office of President, he became, in essence, a "pretender to the throne." According to the Constitution, only a "natural born citizen" can occupy the presidency.

 

Even though he was sworn in on January 20, 2009, Barack Obama is not legally the President of the United States, unless he can prove that he is a "natural born citizen."

 

What's more, every action taken by him while he occupies the White House may be invalid. If he cannot legally be President, every law passed by Congress will be null and void because the Constitution clearly requires that all laws be signed by the President ... and, without a legally elected and sworn in President in office, that becomes an impossibility.

 

Quite frankly, this crisis must be ended! And it must be ended now!

 

And that's just what we're fighting to do. The United States Justice Foundation is spearheading a campaign to protect the United States Constitution ... and your liberty.

 

We have to press our case to stop Barack Obama from, apparently, illegally holding the Presidency, despite the ongoing threats against us. We are speaking of filing additional lawsuits and administrative actions, over and above the dozens already filed, if you will help us today.

 

I need your help right now in order to win this battle. We must raise the needed funds to continue our legal research, pay court costs and lawyer fees, and to contact all 50 State Attorneys General. Helping USJF with this campaign is your best shot, and, possibly your only chance, at finding out whether Barack Obama is legally holding the Presidency of our great nation, or whether he is a fraud, a usurper

 

Are you willing to see the Constitution shredded by the Left? Will you sit back and do nothing while a foreign-born person may be illegally occupying the White House as President of the United States?

 

We will not be intimidated. But we MUST have your help immediately if USJF is to survive this fight to the finish -- and if the U.S. Constitution is to weather this crisis intact!

 

Our country is on the fast track to disaster ... but you can help us keep the situation from getting worse. I pray that I'll hear from you today.

 

P.S. America has never before faced such a threat. Everything we hold dear is at risk with Barack Obama sitting as President without him releasing his actual birth certificate.
