Sing a Song of Mitt Romney…


Mitt Romney – Panel Cartoon

Romney Bot 2012

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of of… g-g-gra-a-ain
For purple m-mountain ma-ma-majesties
How I looted is pla-a-a-ain!
Bain Capital! Bain Capital!
Shed your jobs for me
And crowned my hood a 1/4 billion good
For me me shining me

Willard Mitt Romney, aka Mitt Romney, is a former Governor of Massachusetts and a perenial Republican presidential candidate. He is a Republican presidential candidate for 2012. A Romney Republican opponent claims, “Romney destroyed jobs as CEO of Bain Captial.” Just like Gordon Gekko.

Our Big Banks Are Casinos, Unable to Be Regulated and Are Too Big


You have been hearing in the news about what amounts to a $3 billion bet by JP Morngan/Chase…which they lost. The totals grows day-by-day.  I just wrote to to the president and my federal elected officials asking for protection from financial collapse. Please follow me and click HERE to write the letter below (example) or use your own words. You will be taking to CONGRESS.ORG where you can easily write to Congress:

Dear Legislator,
The recent news that JP Morgan Chase lost at least $2 billion in a matter of weeks on hugely risky bets shows once again that we need to rein in Wall Street and stop the banks from gambling with our money. For over half a century, the Depression-era law known as the Glass-Steagall Act kept commercial banks (where we have our checking accounts, saving accounts and the like) separate from high-risk investment banks. The government agreed to insure the deposits we make in commercial banks through the FDIC, but banks weren’t allowed to turn around and use these deposits as stakes in the Wall Street casino. That all changed in 1999 with the repeal of Glass-Steagall, which paved the way for the financial crisis and the massive Wall Street bailouts. WE NEED A NEW GLASS/STEAGALL AND THE VOLCKER RULE SOONER THA 2014. IT’S BANKING…BUT IT IS ALSO HOMELAND SECURITY.
Sincerely,

Will Smith Slaps Journalist Who Tries To Kiss Him


HUFFINGTON POST

Will Smith is in the middle of a press tour for “Men in Black 3” and got more than he bargained for while in Moscow this week.

Smith was walking a press line when a reporter stopped him to give him a hug and attempted to kiss him.

“Hey man, what the hell is your problem?” Smith exclaimed, and pushed him away, before slapping the man in the face. “He tried to kiss me on my mouth!”

“He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him,” Smith added afterward.

According to TMZ, the man involved in the incident is a TV reporter who likes to kiss celebrities.

The incident comes weeks after more rumors suggesting the actor and his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, are on the rocks yet again. The couple has denied any divorce rumors.

ARMED FORCES DAY!


CELEBRATE

ARMED FORCES DAY

PRESS “PLAY” AND BOW YOUR HEAD AND BLESS OUR ARMED FORCES AROUND THE WORLD

In the United States, Armed Forces Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in May. It falls near the end of Armed Forces Week, which begins on the second Saturday of May and ends on the third Sunday of May.[15]

The day was created in 1949 to honor Americans serving in the five U.S. military branches – the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard – following the consolidation of the military services in the Department of Defense. It was intended to replace the separate Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Days, but the separate days are still observed, especially within the respective services.[16]

The first Armed Forces Day was celebrated by parades, open houses, receptions and air shows. In 1962, President Kennedy established Armed Forces Day as an official holiday. The United States’ longest running city-sponsored Armed Forces Day Parade is held in Bremerton, Washington. In 2009, Bremerton celebrated the 61st Armed Forces Day Parade([17]).

Because of their unique training schedules, National Guard and Reserve units may celebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any period in May. [Wikipedia]
