EMERGENCY! Got Clean Air?


Tell President Obama You’re Outraged! Clean Up Our Air Now, Send a Message Today! asthma

Dear GoodOleWoody,

Just hours ago, President Obama asked EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to withdraw the proposed new national ozone standards, delaying until at least 2013 a safeguard that would protect our families from dangerous smog pollution.

I am appalled — this delay will literally cost lives.

Send a message to the Obama Administration. Tell them to protect our health and stand up against air pollution!

This issue couldn’t be more urgent: Half of U.S. families live in communities where the air is literally unsafe to breathe — and President Obama is looking the other way.

A new standard for smog would prevent up to 12,000 premature deaths, 5,300 heart attacks and tens of thousands of asthma attacks and other serious respiratory illnesses each year — yet the President has simply kicked the can down the road.

The White House‘s decision is shocking and disappointing to all of us who value breathing clean air. Let the President know that we urge him to stand strong against Big Oil and Coal companies and to protect our communities from pollution. 

Despite a year of intense grassroots pressure by Sierra Club volunteers and our allies, President Obama has caved to corporate special interests who put profit above all else, including the health of our families.

Tell the President that a healthy economy requires clean air and healthy people. These protections from smog would have improved our communities and saved billions of dollars in health costs. Letting the polluters off the hook won’t save lives, won’t create jobs and won’t fuel innovation. It will just keep thousands of people sick and kill others prematurely from the pollution in our air.

Contact the White House and tell President Obama that cleaner air is not something we can afford to delay any further.

Thank you for all you do for our environment.

Sincerely,

Let’s Not Forget How the “Big Tease”(sic) Started 1

Ex-Gov. Sarah Palin teased the media by promising an event on Sept. 3 where she might announce for the Presidency.  Now she teases with a new date:  The end of September.  Mrs.  Palin has yet to say or do anything that would signal a run for the Presidency, yet, the media follows her pheromones.  Sarah has been around a long time.  We think we know her.  In this election season we should not forget how she started her celebrity:

CHER SUPPORTS CHAZ ON DANCING WITH THE STARS


Activist and transgender,Chaz Bono, is supported by his mother, the legendary CHER. Celebrity lawyer, Nancy Grace,  tells haters and those who accuse ABC of a “homosexual agenda,” to find something better to do.  If there was a “homosexual agenda,” I say  that it would the same as the “American agenda” which is to seek and love the rights and freedoms all Americans can enjoy in the pursuit of happiness.  Isn’t that true for you?  Yes?  Then from now on, support EQUAL CIVIL RIGHTS FOR ALL AMERICANS!

YOU PROLLY DON’T KNOW HOW BUSY OBAMA HAS BEEN


WOW!  THE PRESIDENT IS REPLYING TO MY EMAILS AGAIN. I THOUGHT I’D SHARE THIS ONE WITH YOU:

September 2, 2011

Dear Friend:

Thank you for writing.  I have heard from many Americans who are losing their jobs and struggling to pay their bills.  Every day, I meet with my economic advisors to make sure we are doing all we can to create good jobs and to help Americans support their families and pursue the American dream.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was the first step to spur job growth and ease the pain of unemployment.  This landmark law has saved or created millions of jobs here at home in industries such as alternative energy, health care, and construction.  By extending and increasing emergency unemployment compensation and increasing access to health insurance, my Administration has also provided relief to millions of unemployed Americans, and has helped improve our Nation’s economic outlook.  Additionally, I signed legislation that will help small businesses — the engine of growth on Main Streets across our country — thrive, grow, and hire by providing them with tax breaks and better access to credit.

However, many Americans are still struggling to find employment and provide for their families.  To assist workers looking for jobs, I signed into law the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act, extending unemployment benefits beyond what existed in the Recovery Act.  To restore desperately needed assistance to Americans who lost their jobs in the recession, I also signed into law the Unemployment Compensation Extension Act of 2010, as well as an extension of COBRA benefits.

My Administration is also helping Americans return to work by emphasizing job training in industries that cannot be outsourced.  Recently laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits have new opportunities to pursue higher education and job training programs, including easier access to Pell Grants.  To encourage job creation in the United States, I am replacing tax laws that send jobs overseas with new incentives to create them here at home.  Available assistance can be found online at http://go.usa.gov/aU7 or www.Opportunity.gov.

Together, we can help more Americans find and keep good jobs and enjoy a healthy standard of living.  To find an employment center near you, select your state at:  www.dol.gov/dol/location.htm.  For information on benefits and opportunities for those seeking employment, I encourage you to visit:  http://go.usa.gov/aUA.  For career resources, call 1-877-872-5627 or visit:  www.CareerOneStop.org.  While it will take time to turn our economy around, I am confident that, working together, we will emerge from this crisis stronger than before.

Thank you, again, for writing.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama

THE GOP JOB HYPOCRASY STARTED WAY BACK IN 2010…AT LEAST 1


Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)

President Obama will give his “jobs bill address” next week to Congress and the nation.  We are hoping and expecting that the President will lay out a bold and comprehensive plan that will challenge Republicans to pass it when put in legislative language.  The public has been waiting for Congress to get its act together” when it comes to the creation of jobs.  Just this year Speaker John Boehner began the 112th Congress saying that the GOP‘s agenda will be “jobs.”  After eight months, The House passed zero jobs bills.  Even before the current Congress, the GOP was only talking about jobs and fighting every attempt by the administration to create jobs. [I wonder what everyday republicans think about their party whose stance affects whether the, republicans, have or keep their jobs. Watch this video:

CONGRESS: IS IT TIME TO VOTE THE OLD LIONS OUT?


TEA PARTY HIJINKS

Recently, we saw what freshman congressmen can do in The House to screw up the works.  For a very long time we have complained about gridlock in Congress, but our pleas for movement on issues have fallen on deaf ears.  Perhaps some of our senators and representatives have been in The Congress long enough.  Please peruse these charts on Wikipedia and see which members have been around too long. Yes, longevity gives a member power, membership on choice committees, chairmanships, etc., but, at what cost to the people who opinions they ignore?  Gridlock has been going on in The Congress for decades.  The Tea Party is just the latest iteration. I suggest that The Constitution be amended to allow for recalling members of Congress for cause.

Today, we learned that we have wasted $60 billion dollars on contractors and bribes in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Why isn’t Eric Cantor calling for spending cut here?  Why isn’t Eric Cantor calling for all our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan be brought home immediately?  We would save $1.4 trillion dollars in reduced spending which would solve our most pressing economic problem!

Each day we see members of Congress being interview on TV, but, on the six o’clock news we don’t hear of this and that legislation being enacted into law.  Witness: The 112th Congress has been “working” for eight months and have not passed a jobs bill. And, they won’t own up and tell us why.  Maybe, “throw the bums out!”
