You know something, I was talking to a woman last week who said she has a twenty year old daughter with type 1 diabetes, she was against the Unions and the healthcare bill and the Dems etc., not surprising as she is a Floridian.
She was worried about her daughter not being able to get healthcare in the future. I threw it out there that the new healthbill must have helped her daughter and she answered, because of it she will be able to stay on my insurance until she is twenty six and then I threw out there that buy the time she was twenty six, the rest of the bill would have kicked in and she would be able to get insurance because pre-existing conditions would no longer prevent her. She grudgingly admitted that was true.

President Obama will be RE-ELECTED as the alternative is NOT an option. President Bush Invaded Iraq and it was revealed he LIED about the reasons but when he ran for re-election he put the FEAR of 9/11 in majority of his ads and the American people fell for it UNFORTUNATELY! President Obama will be RE-ELECTED but this Debt-Ceiling B.S. gives the teabaggers what THEY wanted once again and thats protection for the RICH UPPER-MIDDLE class Americans who walk away with blood on their hands. I will be calling MY Senators and hope everyone else does that opposes this. No one in Washington is revealing to THEIR constituents what CUTS and what PROGRAMS will be affected. If thats not a slap in the face then nothing is BUT the teabaggers & republicans got what they wanted, they will come after US (YOU & ME) with the Obama Blame-game Routine but LESSON LEARNED from 8 years of Bush/Cheney. “LESSER OF TWO EVILS = THE DEMOCRATS”

Barack Obama is Gutting the Core Principles of the Democratic Party
The president’s attacks on America’s social safety net are destroying the soul of the Democratic party’s platform

…Therein lies one of the most enduring attributes of Obama’s legacy: in many crucial areas, he has done more to subvert and weaken the left’s political agenda than a GOP president could have dreamed of achieving. So potent, so overarching, are tribal loyalties in American politics that partisans will support, or at least tolerate, any and all policies their party’s leader endorses – even if those policies are ones they long claimed to loathe.
This dynamic has repeatedly emerged in numerous contexts. Obama has continued Bush/Cheney terrorism policies – once viciously denounced by Democrats – of indefinite detention, renditions, secret prisons by proxy, and sweeping secrecy doctrines.

Well, all I can add to the train of thought that seems to be permeating this Sunday morning is that if Michelle Bachman becomes President because so many decide not to vote, either in the primaries or the general, I will definitely be leaving the country at that point. Not an “idle threat,” I would consider my country fully lost at that point and couldn’t bear to stick around.

As for the “deafening silence” of the left, that seems to be in contradiction to the reported numbers of dissatisfied Democrats and progressives. To the extent that they might be silent is simply a factor of their lack of access to currently controlled media. All I ask is that everyone who is dissatisfied become fully engaged in the upcoming political battles in not only the national elections, but perhaps even more importantly, in the state elections. Choosing to sit out these elections when the country is in danger of being lost forever is a childish stance.

And from our so helpful Republican friends….

INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – We’ve received plenty of feedback about a bill making its way through the Indiana Statehouse that would tie unemployment benefits to drug testing.
The bill was introduced by two freshman Republican lawmakers 

http://www.indianasnewscenter.com/news/political/Should-A-Drug-Test-Be-Required-For-Unemployment-Benefits-116186159.html

Ummm…..doesn’t some have to hold a job for a good while to even collect unemployment?

I had a secret clearance too and your point well taken (where). America has no Idea how fast this could spin out of control if that kept secret/s were released to other countries but like WasMiddleClass I could not bring myself to release such information. In fact even tho WasMiddleClass and myself probably carry the same certification did you know we can not even discuss among ourselves what we know (Compare Notes ect.).

WasMiddleClass – all work with you on a flier that would help our cause.

It is time for ALL to step up to the plate. Those of us whose words you read online can not win this alone.

If you never posted anything online before, now is the time to jump in. We all did it once.

Stand up and fight, or lay down and die. The choice is yours.

It has been three years of fighting for me, but I will NOT lay down and die EVER!

I hope you viewers will join us. We need you!

This is our final stand!

OK people, it is time for another plan!

How do we reach more of our 99er brethren, that more than likely are not online much, if at all, because they can’t afford it?

Where can we find many (besides homeless camps)?

Answer: The local unemployment office!

I’ll repost an article from my state on this board too to show what I am talking about.

4)
As long as 10% of the people in the U.S. hold 70% of the wealth then we are doomed. Let’s put that in real numbers 10% equals 3 million 100 thousand people and that leaves 306 million and 900 thousand people to divide up the 30% of wealth in this country. Just another reason;=No wonder there are no jobs coming back ‘fast’= the money is tied up and does not flow through the country. We used to have taxes of 50% to 91% on wealthy BEFORE PRESIDENT BUSH’s NEW 10 YEAR TAX BREAK FOR THE RICH WAS PASSED and that kept money flowing through the economy because if it wasn’t invested they lost it to taxes. Now there is ………………..ABSOLUTELY NO INCENTIVE………… to invest THUS the money is hoarded and the country slowly comes to a halt. FURTHERMORE –

“WE THE PEOPLE of these United States” Created by our forefathers centuries ago.
Who is “We”?

WE are the homeless and less fortunate then the 1% Billionaires
that reside in this country and abroad. WE are the unemployed who have faught
hard and with a clear purpose. WE are the individuals that have never forgotten the meaning of what 1 dollar is worth. WE are also the people still working but know that WE can be put the same position as my fellow man that is not currently working and WE THE PEOPLE of these United States will leave no stone un-turned until every man or woman is re-employed.

Do you have a scanner that you can scan something into after you mark-up the changes you want to make manually? If so scan it in and send it to tier5for99ers@gmail.com and I’ll see if I can figure a way to re-create it in word the old fashioned way…I’ll re-type it! No scanner…there’s always snail mail.
