Although we are all hearing how bonuses are being handed out like candy during Halloween we really need to look at where this money all came from anyway. You will not get this information if you are watching ABC,NBC, or CBS.
AIG was given 165Billion dollars (courtesy of the US Taxpayer). AIG gave 13B to Goldman Sachs, 5B Bank of America, 7B to Merrill Lynch, Foreign banks in the UK 13B, Germany 17B, Swiss 5B and France 19B. Basically this is a money laundering scheme led by the US Government. They are distracting us with this bonus issue, which is only 1% of all the money. 62B dollars went over seas, 44B went to US banks. While these bonuses were known to be there a year ago through contracts. Chris Dodd actually put into the stimulus bill that we protect these bonuses. Now he is on TV telling you how outragous it is that they are getting them. Well Dodd is the hightest reciptient of campain donations from AIG! He must think we are stupid and the main stream media is leading the way because they don't do their job being the watchdog for the American people. Instead you have to get these stupid emails from me so that you are all aware what is really going on.
We can all sit here and be so angry with people getting bonuses. Unfortunatley these were in CONTRACTS. Geithner knew about these last year. We cannot allow the Gov. to get interfere with these contracts. As angry as we are and as unfair as it is, to allow our Gov. to interfere with these is going against the Constitution. The Constitution states that no Gov. Fed. state or local to inject itself into a binding contract. The Founding Fathers put this in to prevent socialism. To protect US against the government.
Lets all remember too. Not to hate the rich. Remember that when someone has money what do they do with it? They eat out, they buy planes, they have those planes fixed. They buy cars, they travel. All of these actions trickle down to us. Socialism tries to make everyone even but at the lowest level.
China is questioning whether to continue to our debt. What happens here is that China makes products at the lowest rate in their country, people make almost nothing in those factories. They ship it here and we buy it. The money is then sent back to China and they buy our Treasury Bonds(our debt). We started this about 30 yrs ago, hoping that China would become more like us. Unfortunately it is becoming the other way around. Government intrusion in our lives is greater than ever. With Obama's new budget it is going to get even worse. Did you know that the new Climate Czar Browner actually wants to controll what temperature we have our houses? This smart Grid they are pushing will do just that. What they are going to do is charge a certain price for you to burn so many kw at say 72 degress. As you raise your temp. the price will go up significantly. Scary stuff! She was a member of the Socialist International Party. You know just saying maybe she is not qualified to be in the AMERICAN Government!
One more thing, there are so many, but when you see a report about Mexico getting our evil guns? Don't believe it. What really happened is during the 90's we sold the Mexican Governemtn/Army guns to help them. Through corruption they have now landed into the hands of these drug cartels. When you see pictures of guns on TV and they are talking about a specific gun. My father said he has yet to see a report where the gun they are talking about is even on the screen! Thought that was funny. You all know my Father knows the difference between a 50Cal. machine gun and the average rifle used to shoot Bambi!
I am going to be learning to shoot this summer, if anyone wants to join me, let me know. I already have a few friends ready to go.
In matters of style swim with the current. In matters of principles stand like a rock!--Thomas Jefferson.
The nine principles, the foundation of this country, are not being followed by people on the right and the left. I told you I would give you names of people who are standing with me on these principles. I am keeping a list and as their re-elections come up I will let you know so you can support them. We need to get the weasels out of Washington.
Grassfire.org is a great site where you can send an email to your congressman, any congressman and ask them to stop spending and stop lying. I encourage you to take a moment to fight for your freedom. You don't have to go crazy like I do but a simple email does go a long way.
Thank you and God Bless!
