The DNC’s definition of an ‘angry mob’
What’s Nancy Pelosi’s take on town hall protesters who don’t see eye to eye with the White House on health care reform…what an insult to the common American VOTER!Before the election YOU were important to them NOW Dem’s and Republicans are fair game if they DARE TO VIEW THINGS WITH A THINKING MIND OF THEIR OWN…..how dare they!
These Americans have been targeted NOT because they disrupt meetings BUT SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ASKED THE WRONG QUESTIONS. They actually have realized for the first time that the Government does not have their interests in mind. Knowing this is a shock for those who voted for Obama saying that HE was a different kind of Politician, a man who would cause the waters to part in congress promoting a time of peace and prosperity with both sides equally in agreement.
This dream world never happened and Trillions of Dollars later we’re under even greater unemployment and debt than under the hated Bush years that were no better than the hated Clinton years economically speaking that is; LET’S FACE FACTS… NO PRESIDENT in recent memory has so destroyed the American dollar as Obama is now! Hyperinflation Nation starring Peter Schiff, Ron Paul, Jim Rogers, Tom Woods, Gerald Celente, and others. Prepare now before the US dollar is worthless.
For too long in this country we’ve had the give me stuff mentality people standing there with their hand out, and the government putting something in it. Does the idea of small government ring a bell? It is what our founding Fathers had in mind when they gave us our constitution. That is why there is a list in the constitution that quite clearly spells out the powers of the federal government, and also what it is not allowed to do. So basically if it was not listed as a power, then they are to stay away from it, and allow the States to handle it.
Just take a look at federal laws. At the very beginning they will state their authority in enacting the law, and it is almost always the commerce clause. I’m sure they even think that just because your computer is hooked up to the internet, and therefore has contact with other computers in other States, that they then would have the constitutional right of regulating your computer, and thereby your Internet communications; they are out of control.
Federal obligations exceed world GDP
Does $65.5 trillion terrify anyone yet?
“As the Obama administration pushes through Congress its $800 billion deficit-spending economic stimulus plan, the American public is largely unaware that the true deficit of the federal government already is measured in trillions of dollars, and in fact its $65.5 trillion in total obligations exceeds the gross domestic product of the world.
The total U.S. obligations, including Social Security and Medicare benefits to be paid in the future, effectively have placed the U.S. government in bankruptcy, even before new continuing social welfare obligation embedded in the massive spending plan are taken into account.
The real 2008 federal budget deficit was $5.1 trillion, not the $455 billion previously reported by the Congressional Budget Office, according to the “2008 Financial Report of the United States Government” as released by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
The difference between the $455 billion “official” budget deficit numbers and the $5.1 trillion budget deficit cited by “2008 Financial Report of the United States Government” is that the official budget deficit is calculated on a cash basis, where all tax receipts, including Social Security tax receipts, are used to pay government liabilities as they occur.
But the numbers in the 2008 report are calculated on a GAAP basis (“Generally Accepted Accounting
Practices”) that include year-for-year changes in the net present value of unfunded liabilities in social insurance programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
Under cash accounting, the government makes no provision for future Social Security and Medicare benefits in the year in which those benefits accrue.
“As bad as 2008 was, the $455 billion budget deficit on a cash basis and the $5.1 trillion federal budget deficit on a GAAP accounting basis does not reflect any significant money [from] the financial bailout or Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, which was approved after the close of the fiscal year,” economist John Williams, who publishes the Internet website Shadow Government Statistics, told WND.
“The Congressional Budget Office estimated the fiscal year 2009 budget deficit as being $1.2 trillion on a cash basis and that was before taking into consideration the full costs of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, before the cost of the Obama nearly $800 billion economic stimulus plan, or the cost of the second $350 billion in TARP funds, as well as all current bailouts being contemplated by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve,” he said.
“The federal government’s deficit is hemorrhaging at a pace which threatens the viability of the financial system,” Williams added. “The popularly reported 2009 [deficit] will clearly exceed $2 trillion on a cash basis and that full amount has to be funded by Treasury borrowing.” By Jerome R. Corsi

Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary new film is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.
Alan Greenspan is not, we’re told, happy about this 42-minute blockbuster. Watch it, and you’ll understand why. This is economics and history as they are meant to be: fascinating, informative, and motivating. This movie could change America.
