Less than 24 hours after WND reported a proposal from U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, to audit the Federal Reserve was approaching majority support in the U.S. House, he is confirming the plan has reached that “crucial benchmark.”

“The tremendous grass-roots and bipartisan support in Congress for H.R. 1207 is an indicator of how mainstream America is fed up with Fed secrecy,” Paul said shortly after U.S. Rep Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, became the 218th cosponsor, giving the plan, technically, majority support in the 435-member House.

I have to admit…I’m concerned

Mythsaje writes;I’m curious. Why did we fight so hard to put the Dems in Congress, to put a Dem in the Oval Office? Was it to, hopefully, look at reversing some of the worse trends that have afflicted us over the past dozen or more years? Usurious interest rates, skyrocketing health care, college education growing more and more expensive, and yet less and less effective at guaranteeing a good job once it’s finished? Two wars that cannot be won, one of which in the very place where the Soviet military became mired, itself helping to end the Soviet Union once and for all.

I’m not much for blind loyalty. I voted for these people, I fought for them with my words, because I’d hoped that they’d actually represent us and work to protect US, the People, from being taken advantage of by unscrupulous corporate types… (snip)

If this country is going to recover from what Bushco did to it, certain things will have to happen. We have to truly move into the 21st Century. We need unswerving dedication to finding clean, renewable energy, we need universal health care, we need a minimum standard of workers’ rights, and we need a complete overhaul of our banking system intended not to serve the banks and their shareholders, but to serve the United States as a whole. They should be able to accept a reasonable profit margin rather than trying to stretch it beyond reason at every opportunity. Enough is enough.

Without these things, the U.S. will have abandoned any chance it has of remaining a real world power, and the end of the union will become a certainty no matter how long it actually takes. The way things are going, I have to wonder how many of the Dems are complicit, complacent, lazy, or just plain cowardly.

(snip)People are left asking “so, what do the Democrats stand for?” And the only answer we can give at this moment is “Fuck if we know.” Because they clearly don’t stand for defending the people against the banking industry, or the insurance and pharmaceutical giants. They don’t stand for workers’ rights. They don’t stand for prosecuting war crimes.

So, indeed, what DO they stand for?

Fuck if I know.

Obama slammed on shill site, democraticunderground, for yet another outright lie

Posted on Updated on

aura; Barry (aka banking puppet Obama) continues to out himself everyday as a shameless lying puppet. His election may be the best thing for our country, since he proves everyday that there is only one party in the district of criminals, the one wholly owned by the international bankers, that are now looting our treasury and hijacking our republic. So far Obama has lied about ending the war, stopping warrantless wiretapping of US citizens, rescinding the Patriot Act, providing universal health care for all and that’s just the short list. In fact his lies are so egregious, that now even mainstream democrats are starting to wake up and take notice and realize that they will lose everything if they don’t support the idea of a second American revolution, which is desperately needed to take our country back from the elitists that own the p(R)resident, and most members of Congress. Check this thread out on dummiecratunderground and you’ll see what I mean, see dummies and assorted shill bait at dummiecraticunderground finally waking up LINK.

Congress Drops Hate Crimes Bill

Posted on Updated on

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress has dropped legislation that would have expanded hate crime laws to include attacks on gays after it became clear the measure wouldn’t pass the House, aides said Thursday.

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Edward Kennedy, was widely supported by Democrats and even some moderate Senate Republicans. But because it was attached to a major defense policy bill that would have authorized more money for the Iraq war, many anti-war Democrats said they would oppose it.

“We don’t have the votes,” said one House Democratic aide, who spoke on condition of anonymity because conference negotiations on the defense bill were ongoing. “We’re about 40 votes short, not four or six.”

Is it enough now, Nancy?

AIPAC Nancy strikes a Zionist pose

For Education and Discussion Only. Not for Commercial Use.

You have been reluctant to investigate the crimes of the Bush Administration, despite demands from the American people that you do so. You have either been very neglectful of your responsibilities, or complicit in the crimes committed.

Now we know that George Bush lied to all of us regarding his involvement in the outing of Valerie Plame, an undercover, COVERT CIA agent whose job was to learn who did and who did not have nuclear weapons. And this outing happened during a time of war.

The pieces of the puzzle are beginning to fit together now, Nancy. Bush let Scooter take the fall for himself and others, with the assurance to Scooter that he would not serve time in prison. Bush is covering up his own crimes.

Is this enough, Nancy? Is this enough to get you off your butt and do your job? Your approval ratings are lower than the criminal in the White House. Will this be the final straw? If not, what is it going to take? Another illegal war based on lies? They are already making moves in that direction.

It’s time for you to act now, Nancy. Impeachment must be put on the table for Thanksgiving. You are making it more difficult for Dems going into 2008 by your inaction. Instead of insuring a Dem sweep, you are making it easier for the GOP to frame the Dems as “do nothing” because you aren’t doing anything.

So, do something – like your job – and get out a big platter for impeachment. It will be a nice Thanksgiving gift to the American people. LINK
