89,000 stimulus payments went to Dead People or Prisoners.

Washington DC
A government investigator says 89,000 stimulus payments of $250 each went to people who were either dead or in prison.

The Social Security Administration’s inspector general said in a report that $18 million went to 72,000 people who were dead.

The report said $4.3 million went to a little more than 17,000 prison inmates.

Well, Americans are waking up to the fact that the government is a criminal conspiracy run by the Republicans and Democrats on behalf of the Neo-Cons.

What happens when the people wake up to this fact is difficult to imagine.

I heard this morning that the majority of Americans favor the formation of a third party.

I've always held to 'a distant vision' of a Third Party and a sitting 'Council of Three Party Presidents'.

The Tea Party is a form of a third political party.

But I won't support them ...

That is correct.

The Tea Party IS the establishment. The biggest financial backer of the Tea Party is the billionaire oil man David Koch.

The problem is the system, which allows Wall Street to rule over us, and which promotes various errors regarding mankind.

Right now, it should be obvious that Donald Sussman is ruling Maine.

The Tea Party is in full support of Multiculturalism, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, etc.

It's what comes after the Tea Party that will be interesting.

Wink Just a random thought about party lines Leonard ...


The Bad, The Worse and the Party Line

A wise man once wrote about blindly and stupidly voting party line.

" ........in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines, which have lifted them to unjust dominion."

Rationalizing voting for a fraudster to tow the party line, baaah, baaah,
how's the grass taste today?

Well, of course, I agree with these sentiments.

I believe this was General Washington.

If General Washington were to return, he would find himself in complete agreement with my ideas.

And he would agree that this is no longer America, but rather a counterfeit, postmodern, multicultural "nation" under the domination of the Neo-Con financiers (Donald Sussman, for example.)

But sadly, those of my ilk have to battle, CBS, the NY Times, etc.

Thanks for posting this quote.

[ Charles and Samuel Wyly ]



Huffingtonpost.com

Rolling Eyes Wyly Brothers Gave Millions To Over 200 Republican Candidates

The billionaire brothers from Dallas who were charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission with orchestrating a massive securities fraud scheme that netted them $550 million are well-known philanthropists and fundraisers for conservative politicians.

Charles and Samuel Wyly, along with their wives, have donated $2.5 million to more than 200 Republican candidates and committees over the past 20 years, including over $1.3 million to the Republican National Committee, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

The top recipients of their largesse have been Texas Republicans. George W. Bush received at least $100,000 raised by the Wyly clan during the 2000 presidential election. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson has received $30,400 from the family; Rep. Pete Sessions, $29,000.

Other Republican senators who've received their donations include John Cornyn of Texas, Sam Brownback of Kansas, Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, John Thune of South Dakota and Kit Bond of Missouri. Sam Wyly also funded the Swift Boat campaign that torpedoed Massachusetts Democrat John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.

And the Wyly brothers have been busy in the 2010 election cycle, most recently writing a check dated June 10 for $10,000 to the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. Charles Wyly has also contributed to Freedom Works, a now-defunct political action committee started by former Republican House Majority Leader Dick Armey (which is different from the current FreedomWorks PAC affiliated with the Tea Party movement, as erroneously reported by HuffPost in an earlier version of this story). The Wylys and their companies have also reportedly contributed $353,500 to Texas Gov. Rick Perry in recent years.

Left and right can agree on this:

The government has lost its authority because it is no longer objective.

Instead of governing for the sake of the people, it governs for the sake of special interests.

There is no government of the nation, per se.

The first step must be to restore national unity.

The next step is to expel those who do not want to be, or who cannot be part of the nation.

The final step on the road to victory is to install a national government which works for all the people.

The worst enemies of the nation are the Marxists, who try to foment dissension among various parts of the nation (labor vs. capitalists, Democrat vs. Republican, man vs. woman, parent vs. child)

An ideal government and state would be an independent Maine, joined with the Maritime Provinces and other of the northern tier of states (Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Idaho, Northern New York, Michigan -- once the urban population is expelled.)

May God bring this about....without violence.

That is, the ultimate solution to our problems is secession and an independent homeland.

Maine is that de facto homeland already, but not in law.

Unless we move to protect her, we will be overrun by the type of urban filth which assaulted the innocent driver in Portland.

As matters now stand, we are cattle for Wall Street.

This has to end.

Before we look abroad – Look at home

I am not one of those people who expect too much from “quick fix” solutions — especially for large scale, social problems that never seem to get any better; however, I think there is always an opportunity to stop digging any deeper into a glaringly obvious hole.

Anybody take a count lately of the number of government agencies and private not-for-profit 501(c)3 organizations and unincorporated grass-roots, loosely organized volunteer citizen groups that exist for ostensibly charitable causes?

You will be surprised by the number of homeless service, prevention and shelter organizations in local, state, regional and national organizations whose mission is to feed the hungry — homeless or not — and provide relief to those in need in the USA.

Shamefully, many people who find themselves destitute, homeless and hungry are United States veterans, senior citizens, are mentally impaired or physically limited or are orphans — all of which represent the most vulnerable and least able to reverse their situations.

The record is replete with cases that are referred to one social organization or another and perhaps even referred to a second governmental agency or faith-based charity only to learn that, in essence, “we have no money”.

We are at the precipice of that “glaringly obvious hole” I was talking about, and, I would like to suggest one small step that is long overdue, in my opinion.

The homeless, tempest-tost, tired, poor huddled masses of wretched refuse from the teeming shores around the globe were invited here, after all, by us.

So, thanks to that well-known, landmark invitation that brings us a world of immigrants, we add our natural-born citizens who have lost their jobs, their cars, their homes and are no longer able to support themselves, our “need” is “greater” than our available resources.

The need is always greater than available resources, right?

Maybe, but in addition to enforcement of laws that regulate the legal immigration of people into our country, I believe the time has come to take a second look at resources squandered to the benefit of foreign nations so long as we have not satisfied our own domestic needs.

I am putout with organizations based locally that redirect our resources rather than invest them here at home — to jumpstart our local economy, re-employ those that are able bodied, invest in the future of our own citizens.

With just the government and private money raised recently to provide aid to Haiti, how many of our own homeless could have received shelter?

How many of our own children could have gone to bed without the pain of hunger?

How many of our own elderly could we have provided needed medications, or, treatment been made available to our own mentally ill?

I watched the American dreamers on one-out-of-every-three television stations for days on end as they stocked ships and planes lined up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies while our own American citizens went without.

Was the need to provided aid to Haiti, Chile, or Turkey greater than the need of our own disabled veterans or retired seniors living on a “fixed income”?

Imagine how different things would be at home if our government gave us the same support they give to other countries.

Oh Well - It's Only Money ...

This is very well written.

But do you get it yet?

The "American" government hasn't worked for Americans since 1945.

In the Second World War, they threw in with the Communists against Europe.

Then the Communists took power in America under the guise of "liberalism" and "Neo-Conservatism."

Now "they" are working for a global government controlled by the likes of Madoff, Bernacke, etc.

Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay at the Travis Co. Courthouse in Austin, Texas on Monday, Jan. 10, 2011.

DeLay was back in court for the sentencing phase of his trial after his Nov. 24 conviction on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.


Judge sentences Tom DeLay to 3 years in prison
By JUAN A. LOZANO

Monday, January 10, 2011


AUSTIN, Texas -- A judge ordered former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to serve three years in prison Monday for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.

The sentence comes after a jury in November convicted DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The Republican who represented the Houston area was once one of the most powerful people in U.S. politics, ascending to the No. 2 job in the House of Representatives.

During a several-minute statement to the judge prior to sentencing, DeLay repeated his longstanding claims that the prosecution was politically motivated and that he never intended to break the law.

"I can't be remorseful for something I don't think I did," DeLay said.

Senior Judge Pat Priest sentenced him to the three-year term on the conspiracy charge.

He also sentenced him to five years in prison on the money laundering charge but
allowed DeLay to accept 10 years of probation instead of more prison time.

Woman Hangs Up On $10,000 Call From Apple

Technology Facilitates Intrusion.

People weasel their way into our lives in order to sell us cable TV, a zoo membership, or enhanced reproductive organs.

So who could be surprised when Gail Davis, a woman in Orpington, England, picked up the phone, listened to someone offering her a prize, and immediately replied, "Thank you very much; I'm not interested"?

The only problem was that the caller really was someone from Apple and Davis really had won a prize.

For her household was, indeed, the one from which the 10 billionth app had been downloaded from Apple's app store.

As the Cult of Mac tells it, Davis was brought to her senses by her daughters, one of whom had downloaded the free PaperGlider app, which is so utterly useful to humanity that Warren Buffett is probably playing it as we speak.

The 10 billionth app..
One of the finest.

Davis was distraught when she called Apple back and somehow the person on the company's helpdesk reportedly proved to be less than helpful.

Perhaps Davis was already a marked woman.

Perhaps it had been Apple COO Tim Cook himself calling to tell her she had won a $10,000 gift card.

Davis was mired in shame.

As she told the Cult of Mac: "The more I thought about it, the more I realized it was a genuine call.

The girls were getting quite tense.

They never would have forgiven me.
They would have held it against me for all eternity."

Children hold all sorts of things against their mothers for all eternity, from looks to luck.

But this would have been too much to bear.

Her eternity was made sweeter when she received another call from Apple.
This time it was a colleague of Eddy Cue, Apple's VP of iTunes.

You might wonder why Cue himself didn't make the call.

It could have been because it had, indeed, been Cue, rather than a telemarketer,
who had made the original call and received a polite British brush-off.

So now Gail Davis and her family can download more apps and enjoy their fame.

And Apple can content itself that it is now only Toshiba being rude to the company,
rather than the woman whose family downloaded the 10 billionth app..
