Obama Assures that “We” Are in this Together…


Good afternoon,

When President Obama says that we can’t wait to put Americans back to work, he’s not just talking about the White House. He’s talking about all of us. That “we” is everyone.

The President has a proposal — the American Jobs Act — that economists say could put nearly two million Americans back to work. But some in Congress are determined to block that jobs plan, so we’re getting started with concrete actions that President Obama can take without waiting on lawmakers to debate legislation or pass a bill.

We are looking at everything that the government can do, and we know that some of the best ideas are going to come from people like you.

If you have an idea for something President Obama can do without the help of Congress, or know of a program in your community that needs to go nationwide, I want to hear from you.

Republicans: The Dismantling of America 1


Could it be?  Republicans put democrats to shame when it comes to speaking as a group–with the  same talking points–using the same phrasing.  They have hoodwinked enough voters to turn so many state legislatures republican with republican governors.  Gov. Walker (R-WI) is still in charge in spite of great efforts to dethrone him.  As reported before, he seeks–or by now has–the power to dismantle local government and sell off public assets to his friends.  Gov. Jan Brewer is so strapped for cash that she is selling off her prisons to a powerful prison industry.  Republican governors do have budget problems, but, it is unconscionable that they are cutting education: schools as well as teachers et als. [Speaking of education, how can America hope to dominate the world--as it once did--in math, science, inventions and higher education with the schools we have  today?] Think of Governor Christie (R-NJ) and intone “Dixie.” The saddest thing is that we

Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC)

witness how republicans are using their new power to take the vote away from blacks and young adults. Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) has successfully instituted picture ID for voting knowing that older blacks in her state have few such means of identification. [Note: Governor Haley's roots are from India, a country of brown people!]  Can you believe this?  Some republican congressmen are charging their constituents for personal audiences.  Republican candidates for office run from reporters slipping out back doors and refuse to appear on TV and let the public see them be interviewed by the Fourth Estate (which will be redundant in the new society).

Republicans are quick to mouth that democrats want to fight class warfare. Well, republicans are doing something worse: They are dismantling our society.  Little by little they are reducing our society into two classes:  (1) The Royal Class of millionaires and billionaires who have all the land, real estate and money and (2) The peasants who work for them. We witness former tenants living in tent cities in this day and age.  (Sounds like reverse history from our mother country, doesn’t it?)  What promises of royal peerage have been made to the Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Eric Cantor? Don’t the Tea Party and those earning under $200,000 realize that eventually they will be lumped in with us other peasants.  Republicans already edit (read that censor) textbooks in Texas and then send them around the nation. [Note: The Governor in Texas is Rick Perry (R).  One day public housing will consist of  worker cottages...or, God, no: Slave quarters? For generations urban and rural blacks have been living in sub-standard housing and have depended on charity from the privileged class.  Young blacks probably won't go to see "The Help" because it shows how employment used to be for Negroes post slavery and Jim Crow.  I shudder to think about an all republican dominated America.  Will the royals accept rich blacks into their circle or will racism still persist? I expect that black and white serfs will get along.  Any slaves will be black, of course!

The professional class will be obliterated.  Little need for lawyers and stock brokers.  Wealth will be concentrated into the few republicans who have grabbed the most power in America!  We will probably revert to an agrarian society where peasants till the land, husband the crops and feed Miss Ann and Mr. Charlie. [Terms borrowed from the 1950s when my grandfather was a "yardman." Who'd heard of landscaping?] Oh, there will be doctors, bankers and judges and a few other professionals, like estate managers…and slave drivers.

One good thing that might happen among the peasant class is a return to God.  I remember reading about the importance of the church to slaves (when allowed)  and which was used to keep them suppressed.  The church gave hope and a reason for living.  Ironically, reading The Bible led to education of the slave class in America which led to racial equality in society… so to speak.

Who knows, before our society collapses into backwardness, China and Japan may have foreclosed on everything or moved in and conquered us.

“Democrats May Take Back the US House”…Pelosi


News from The Hill:

Pelosi: House is ‘in play’ in 2012
By Mike Lillis

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Democrats have a shot at taking back the House in 2012.

The former Speaker touted the diversity of the candidates the Democrats have recruited – “two generals, a colonel… legislators, small business people, mayors, many women and minorities” – and noted that the party, despite being the minority, has outraised the Republicans on the campaign trail this year.

“We have definitely put the House in play,” she said during her weekly press briefing in the Capitol.
