"Democrats also inserted a provision in the bill to bail out some of the nation's largest transit systems. The bus and rail systems could be on the hook for billions of dollars in payments because exotic deals they entered into with investors _ which have since been declared unlawful _ have gone sour with the collapse of American International Group Inc. and other financial institutions."
Our public trans is already sketchy, this will do some heavy damage. Not only are people going to be laid off because of the strings attached, but public trans has to suffer too?! Gah. I don't know how "St. Obama" is gonna fix this mess, but a mess it is.
We are witnessing the convulsions of a new era in America. Looks like Ford will be the only on left standing, and it will be surrounded by many others”

“Err...what I meant about Ford is that they will be the only major American car manufacturer, surrounded by foreign made-in-Alabama.”
“On the Tues. nite broadcast of Countdown, they showed a clip of McCain from 2004, his statement being that he would honor the Iraqi's request to leave if it were made. Now that they have made it very plain, he has reversed himself. Why isn't that information getting aired? MSM is lobbing him softballs while creating a narrative that Obama is moving to the right. The MSM is not doing their research.
I am very concerned that he voted for the FISA bill, his support for the death penalty in a crime where no death occured, expanding giving money to churches (i don't think it's possible for them to truly separate out the monies). Yet, inspite of my misgivings, I will solidly support Obama vs. McCain.
Our country is going thru a painful (to become a lot more) period of coming to terms with our lifestyle and the evil doings of the financials and big corps. chopping up our government and resources to suit themselves. We are at the beginning of a correction and we still have time to have an effect on the outcome. A re-energized electorate is a step in the right direction. We have more contrast between these two candidates than we've had in a long time. I hope a lot of people keep posting and commenting on these issues and continue to stay informed after the election.”
The Federal Reserve is neither government (it's private banks) nor has a Reserve. It creates money out of nothing and interest is owed to the Fed for every US dollar.

“Great! So now what...
I signed up and took the link to opensecrets.org.
My Rep is getting 41% of his funding from PACs, but I think he does a good job (Mike Thompson D-CA 1).
So do i email him and tell him or do you?
Am i now "a soldier for the cause"?
I think the point KarenM makes is a good one-the media. Without mass awareness, the plan will go nowhere.”
