Administration set to unveil new regulatory policy

June 16, 2009 by  

Administration set to unveil new regulatory policy President Obama will deliver a speech on Wednesday in which he is expected to announce a plan for a sweeping overhaul of the financial system regulation.

According to a preview offered yesterday by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Lawrence Summers, director of the National Economic Council, the plan will call for greater oversight powers for the Federal Reserve and stricter restrictions on complex financial products.

Specifically, the reform envisions the creation of a council of regulators responsible for coordination across the financial system.

It will also require institutions which sell asset-backed securities to retain a 5 percent stake in the loans in an effort to discourage risky lending practices.

"Considerations of stability, safety and systemic risk have to loom larger in the planning, thinking, and strategizing of every financial institution going forward than they have in the past," Summers said in a speech on Friday, quoted by the Wall Street Journal.

Critics of the proposal have said the Fed is already overextended and the plans lack provisions for regulating the insurance industry, according to the Associated Press.

Others have pointed out it fails to create a single regulator, leaving the job to a patchwork of local and state-level agencies which often encroach upon one another’s jurisdiction.

    Simply unreal. Give a private cartel sweeping new powers to control our money. Simply unreal! The more research I do regarding our fraudulent financial system, the more I am amazed we tolerate it. Woodrow Wilson is the cause of all of this when he instituted the Fed and IRS as the government thieves who steal our money.

    Monetizing debt never works and central banks, I am now convinced, are the primary cause of all our financial misery, something I fear will break this once great nation.

    • B-Man

      I think all of this is a great idea. We need the Government to pay for everything. They are the answer to all our troubles. Why make a problem out of the goal?

      • http://yahoo Jammin’

        B-Man you need to move to Canada/Europe and then we’ll see how you like your daily life controlled by gov’t

        • B-Man

          Jammin, I was only kidding. I had been reading alot of these blog responses and I was overwelmed with how many people are frustrated out there that Im just wondering how this guy even got in office. Just having some fun to try and get the short hairs up. No! I am as sick of all this as I can be and I hope we can create our own form of Accorn but WITH integrity. Americans, you know the people that made this country great? need to rise once again. It’s only been 200 years and we need Men and Women that love their freedoms and their families and believe in honoring the fallen before us who provided our way of life to now take their place in history. Most of us were never called to defend anything but our jobs. That time has gone and we as a single group across this country need to rise up, stand for what is right , NOT what’s popular but RIGHT and stand now. Get out from behind the 40 plus hrs. / wk of TV, start sending emails, letters whatever to your local congressmen and senators that the majority of us which you are sworn to serve (key point) they are to serve us, need to stop if they have to file a nationwide class action lawsuite to stop what is happening. Action is what is needed not talk. By the time these idiots get ready to get ready, hell has been unleashed on us already. If they know it’s happening and they have proof it’s happening they need to ACT. We have to scream every day at our representatives. we cannot let this go on and and the world cannot afford for the real America to fail. We were respected once and I believe we can get that back.
          But I do here Canada is beautiful.

      • debra

        B-Man your kidding right. If you are not kidding ..it has got to be because you are a welfare ,dont own anything ,so dont pay any taxes kind of guy.. When 40% of the population do not pay taxes..how do you think the government pays for all it does. Oh yeah I forgot “the rich”….those of us who have to get up everyday and go to work so we can pay 50% of what we earn..No hanging out in the streets for us.

      Perhaps you should read up a little on the Federal Reserve Bank History. The Federal Reserve System is already a cartel. It is not owned by the Government of the USA. It is owned by the independant bakers of the world. The Federal reserve act was written up on Jeckyll Isalnd In November/December by six men headed by Senator Nelson Aldrich who was head of the National Monetary commission created in 1909. Accompanying Senator Aldrich at the Hoboken station were his private secretary, Shelton; A. Piatt Andrew, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, and Special Assistant of the National Monetary Commission; Frank Vanderlip, president of the National City Bank of New York, Henry P. Davison, senior partner of J.P. Morgan Company, and generally regarded as Morgan’s personal emissary; and Charles D. Norton, president of the Morgan-dominated First National Bank of New York. Joining the group just before the train left the station were Benjamin Strong, also known as a lieutenant of J.P. Morgan; and Paul Warburg, a recent immigrant from Germany who had joined the banking house of Kuhn, Loeb (copied from Eaustace Mullins book).

      These men represented 1/6th of the worlds wealth at the time.

      The proposed Federal Reserve Bank was to be “controlled by Congress” and answerable to the government, but the majority of the directors were to be chosen, “directly or indirectly” by the banks of the association. In the final refinement of Warburg’s plan, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors would be appointed by the President of the United States, but the real work of the Board would be controlled by a Federal Advisory Council, meeting with the Governors. The Council would be chosen by the directors of the twelve Federal Reserve Banks, and would remain unknown to the public. (Mullins)

      So as I see it, the Federal Reserve system is seen as controlled by the government but in reality is contolled by the major banking and business families of the world who make the decisions on money supply.

      Shades of conspiracy theory of a new world order as has often been mentioned by President Bush before W.

      I suggest you plug in on your search engine Secrets of the Federal Reserve, Eustace Mullins watch the videos and read the book about the Federal Reserve System. It will convince you that the Federal Reserve system is already a cartel.

      The New World Order believes in the ruling of the world by an elite oligarchy, and it has started in the USA with the Military Commissions Act and the Patriot Act which are eroding many personal freedoms in the name of safety.

      IN ANY EVENT READ MULLINS BOOK AND IT IS ON LINE

  • DixieConnie

      • teri

        **TO: Veronique; You can go online and find Obama’s Birth certificate you idiot!! Secondly, he is a Christian…. and who care’s if he was … something other than Christian!!! This country was created as a nation of religious freedom and one that did not discriminate against race, greed and color. It’s ignorant and uneducated people like you that make thinking knowledgable people like myself embrassarrased to call people like yourself, Americans. It’s people like You Veronique who are “evil”. You are just one of the population that Rush and Republicans know are ingnorant and will beleive anything they tell you even if it’s a bunch of lies and propaganda. Go get an education, study economics, and then you can have an intelligent discussion!

        • GERALD OF WESTLAND

          Teri,you are the idiot! The dems are going to pass a law that protects child molesters so if one of your children or grandchildren you find someone molesting and you assault them YOU GO TO JAIL. Open your eyes and see what the anti-christion, gay-loving and child murderer is doing and do not listen to his words….just his actions along with the dems! Try it for one week and you sound like one of the e-mail friend I cut from mailings as she put her race before God and country!

        • debra

          Teri I dont think you need to study economics..How about some common sense.....IF YOU AINT GOT THE MONEY …YOU DON`T GO SHOPPING!!

        • tedg

          Why has Hawaii sealed his birth certifecate if he has nothing to hide? Why has
          Kenya sealed his record? If he wasn’t born there, what record do the have to
          seal?And finally why has he paid a legal staff millions of dollars to keep these records sealed when Mcain revealed his vault copy? GO USURPER AND CHIEF! After he destroys America, to punish us for whatever sins he thinks we deserve, It will come out that he had no right to be in the Whitehouse, but by then he ‘ll be the president of Kenya.

        • tedg

          OK terri, I got one for you.Tell me when raising taxes has helped a failing economy, since you obviously stated that we all need an education in economics. And I wouldn’t care if bama was an athiest.

        • john w

          Teri you are the idiot it’s not his birth certificate it’s a certification of live birth. There is a difference. I could explain all the finer points about why people question his birth place but you are way to stupid to understand!

      • tedg

        Who is this guy? Woodrow wilson Reincarnated? Will there be a country left by 2012? I expected the worse and hoped for the best in November, But does
        anyone think that moving toward the center, or having a big tent party hasn’t
        led us to where we are now! Those who think that Reagan’s ideas are antiquated
        should re read George Washington who said, and I para phrase, Wecannot spend our way out of debt. I wish we could impeach almost every congresman and senator in office right now for violating there oathe of office. You could select 100 people at random at a laundromat, to replace congress, and get a better result. Term limits my friends. We have created our own class of royalty in this country. Why should anyone serve 30-40 years in the house or senate, and then
        leave it to their offspring? Think Tip O’neil, Al gore etc. What is this? The house of commons? TERM LIMITS!!!!!!!!!!!

    • teri

      He didn’t Blow it! He’s an Awesome President! It’s going to take a very long time to fix our economy!! Furthermore, the government had to invest in our economy to jump start and to slow the downturn. Pres. Obama said it would take a long time, and that there would get worse before it would get better.

      • coleman

        HE DID BLOW IT!!!! HES NOT A JOB MAKER HES A JOB TAKER
        IF HE STAY OUT OF IT WE BE BETTER OFF IF THEY WOULD CUT OUR
        TAXES.
        THE GOVERNMENT IS WORKING BUT NOT FOR US

      • tedg

        How do you define “awesome president”? By quadrupling the debt in 100 days?
        Throwing 40 billion at GM because they’re too big to fail? And then let them go bankrupt anyway so you can dole it out to the union that destroyed them in the first place?Do yourself a favor, and I don’t mean to be unkind,(it’s just that it might be a long time before this economy recovers, and you will have some time to read) STUDY HISTORY!!! This has all been tried before

  • Aaron

    If this passes it is the last straw for me. I will be hanging my american flag upside down.

    • DixieConnie

      Now is the time, Brother. Let everyone know how you feel. We do. We fly the Alamo flag made in 1824 and flown at the Alamo in 1835. We also fly the Confederate Flag. Let Freedom Ring.

      • teri

        Transparency is Freedom! Obama in the short (5) months he’s been in office has done a great job. Particularly in light of the Titanic Disasters he inhereted from the Repubs and the past administration!! It’s going to take a LONG time to fix our economy.
        Lastly, It would be complete idiocy to not take steps to protect you, me and the rest of the country from unethical, and/or illegal banking/finance/investment practices. We need to revamp our 1930′s regulatory banking framework, and update it to a 21st century. We need regulation to help prevent the same unethical and risky business practices which nearly destroyed our economy and has adversely affected the lives of nearly every American!! In a perfect world, people would choose honesty and ethics over Greed. Unfortunately, that is not the case, so we therefore need good regulation, oversight and transparency to help avoid a reoccurance. Go President Obama!!

        • tedg

          Are you an idiot!! We are looking at Jimmy Carter II. You want out of a recession, Cut taxes!!! Works every time.

      • GERALD OF WESTLAND

        Dixie…Not only do they get their pay but an expense account that is 1-2 mill for reps and 2-3 mill for sen. Plus full retirement pay,insurance,dental and some get body-guards (ALL FREE) and only have to serve 4 years…Why do you think most of them are millionaire over and over? Or have served for 20 or thirty years? Did you know about the party at the white house..they imported steak at $100 a pound.They live off the tax-payer and don’t have to pay a cent and most of what they do spend is a tax write-off. Did you see any monies for the homeless or shelters? yet BHO wants to count them in the censer next year Shame to those thast voted him in AND IF THEY ARE HONEST THEY WILL ADMIT WHAT BHO AND THE DEMS ARE DOING IS NOT WHAT THEY WANTED. the w.h. staff always states that the people spoke last November and that’s the final! BHO never told any of the voters that he is not a christion nor did he say this is no longer a christian nation till after he was elected!

        • tedg

          AMEN Gerald! I’ll not attack a mans religion, but when you pretend to be on one side of an equation only to get elected, That is the worse kind of hypocrisy.
          I’m sure you know that there is one USTreaty that said we aren’t a christian nation, but that was in the early 1800s, under Thomas jefferson to appease the
          Barbary pirates. No one beleived it then. It was just misguided diplomacy.Look what benefit that is giving us today. I never went to college, but I would put my intellect and knowledge of history against that baboon in the whitehouse, anyday.

        • debra

          Hey Gerald did you know that when Pelosi became speaker of the house she demanded and got a airplane as big as airforce 1,and got all the trimmings too,to take her to San Francisco every Fri and back to DC on Mon.

        • DixieConnie

          Gerald: my favorite so far, he took his WHOLE family to Paris for vacation. And his wife to NY for dinner and a show and her shoes as she worked with the homeless. I just love these people. No concept of what it is to really work in the real world. oh my. life is interesting.

  • DixieConnie

    Canada is beautiful to VISIT. It is really good to read that most of the writers agree with me. I am so surprised this person made it into the White house. I remember when Clinton was President, he scared me, but… nothing like this man. Why didn’t people know who they were voting in before this mess happened? Could he really pull the wool over everyone’s eyes so badly. Are we such a following group, like sheep, that we don’t know what we are doing or who we are voting for. I did not vote for this person. I really hope the rest of the world wakes up soon. I have been writing to my Senators and congressman but it still continues, daily. What now? Impeachment? Are we to sit by and watch our country go to pieces because of a group of Liberal DEMOCRATS. Some say the democratic party. No, its the democrat party. Until some democrates in Congress decide that the people are not happy, they are going to continue to do as they want to with OUR MONEY. Who ever said it was OK to take what they wanted to take out of our hard earned paycheck. Why don’t I get to say what I want to have taken out. Why don’t I get to give what I want to. Why it is okay for it to be stolen from me and I have no say. It is my money, not theirs. I work for this and I resent paying for those that don’t or WON’T work. We need change but not the way it is going. We need to change WHAT comes out of our paychecks. But I guess we are letting the DEVIL have his dues…

    • tedg

      Connie I sympathize. But these are not are parents democrats.These are full blown Marxsists/progressives, and I’m afraid most of the country is to naive to know it.
      This started at the late 1800s. One president I use to admire was TeddyRooosevelt.
      And do you know who he admired and spoke radiantley about? Mussolini!!!

    • tedg

      PS. Because he was vague. Did he tell us what he believed in? Yes it was Hope and Change. How do you nail down a candidate on this platform? The sheeple
      slurped it up like fresh spilled gravy!!! I use to think the solution to this countries problems, was for everyone to get out and vote. But judging by this last election,
      It’s probably best that half stay home. We are a nation of idiots!!! Now I think they’re
      ought to be a test to allow people to vote. That is not so weird when you consider that the original right was restricted to property owners.I’m not speaking of racism here. I’m just saying that a person that has a vested interest in the countries prosperity, might do a little research before an election,as opposed to someone who gets a welfare check every month. I’m just saying

      • DixieConnie

        tedg:well, I’m just saying, ” I like the idea of only landowners being able to vote”. I have 17 acres in the country and pay about $5,000 a year in land taxes. Now, I know I’m gonna catch hell over this statement, so I will also include all others that work and support themselves and DO NOT ALLOW welfare check owners to vote. It appears they are being bought anyway. I’m just saying.

      • DixieConnie

        tedg: I agree with you on the landowner only being able to VOTE. I own 17 acres in the country and pay $5,000 a year on taxes. I might also include those that work and support themselves. But not the Welfare check owners. They need to not vote. Their vote is being paid for but I’m sure they don’t see it that way. I’m just saying.

  • ONTIME

    Great! More rearranging the deck chairs is now to take place instead of what really needs done. This bunch is the biggest lot of Bs’ers this nation has had since the Civil War years, the fact is it is this bunch that made possible and caused this financial fiasco and now they want to put lipstick on their pig and try and tell all they are as pure as the wind driven snow, when what they are is a thieving bunch of crooks making useless CYA law.

    There is a time and place for all things, the time to put these folks out of office is now an imperative, if you are worried now then you will be in even more dire straights if you don’t get off your duff and become active to save your own hide.

  • DiverDan

    RAPE!
    America Wake UP! This administration is raping the country for their own benefit.
    FYI, Dixie Connie, Congress Gets FULL SALARY FOR LIFE, And then their wife takes over FULL medical Benefits at NO cost.( TO THEM)
    They will not stop until we either vote them out of office, or USA is taken over by another country, possibly the former leaders of USSR, or maybe they will bring back Hitler for a return engagement.
    Another few years of what is going on, no one will be able to recognize the country that was founded “FOR THE PEOPLE”
    We can NOT spend our way out of financial trouble
    We need ALL NEW people in Washington
    OB Got To GO !
    Pelosi Got To GO

    • coleman

      WE GOT TO MENY SHEEP DAN ,,,THEY`LL WAKE UP WHEN IT TOO LATE.

    • Tom B

      You’re all a bunch of racists. How do you think the country got in this mess, you think it got in this mess in the last 5 months. You’re idiots, it took years to get in this mess, say the last 8 years really got us deep into this mess. Say Idiot Bush that spent over a trillion dollars on a war that we should never have been in. Wepons of mass destuction, where? Bush really screwed things up in more ways than one. It’s going to take a lot to straighten things out. And man you guys need to work on you’re grammer. It’s pretty hard to get things done when everyones against you right out of the gate. Give the guy a chance, pretend the guy is white. Don’t be so negative all the time. That’s all I ever hear.

      • 13th Gen. American

        Your an idiot. This does not have anything to do with race. I could give a rats ass what color he is if he was any good. It is you that comes up with that just to justify his destruction of America. Oh I know the retort. BLABLABUSH, HATE HATE BUSH. Blame him for everything.Obama is the messiah.

        • Tom B

          Messiah What religion do you think obama is?
          And you think he destroyed America in 5 month! We’re better off now than we were 5 month ago. no one has done as much good as he’s done in just 5 months.
          Tell me what good did BUSH do. Tell me? Can’t think of anything! O ya he gave 700 Billion dollars to the banks. And what are the banks doing now, nothing. Just paying thier top dogs millions of dollars in bonuses and salaries.

      • teri

        I hear you Tom! It’s going to take a LOng time to fix this economy. I wouldn’t be surprised if it takes a few years or more.

      • GERALD OF WESTLAND

        Tom B..Guess you got your check from BHO. Like him you use race as an excuse..If you were to check stuff out you’ld see BHO was elected by the white vote and I believe most of the ‘whities’ that voted for him like J.Wright said and BHO put out….If you don’t vote for Obama it’s because you’re a raciest. it you look up his linage you’ld find BHO is less then 25% black and under Federal Guideline can not claim to be black!

      • tedg

        What do you mean everyones against him? The media is sllobering all over him!!
        He can do no wrong!! Have you all ready forgotten that 9/11 was in Bushes first 8 months and we haven’t been hit since. And get the Quote straight,”we can’t afford to let this man develop weapons of mass destruction”. And by the way Hillary And Kerry agreed,and further more, mustard gas is considered a weapon of mass
        destruction and he had previously used it against the Kurds. Now I am not huge GW fan but it could have been a lot worse. The problem with Bush was he spent like a drunken democrat. But he did request no less than 11 times for better
        oversight of Fannie/Freddie. But Barney Frank (D Massachusetts assured us was unecessary) By the by, In spite off it all, unemploymen was at 5% a year ago and was not more than 6% the months after 9/11. Get your head out of your nether regions. If things don’t turn around soon you will be begging for the bush years. Oh and by the way, I don’t care that Bama is half black.

      • DixieConnie

        Tom: All things did not start with Bush nor are they gonna stop with Obama. Nothing has to do with color. It all has to do with GREED. And EGO.

    • teri

      You don’t even know what you’re talking about!! Stop listening to those idiots on Fox, and to Rush!! The party of “no” who wants us to follow the same ideology that got us into this mess in the first place. You don’t have a clue on what it takes to get us out of this economic calamity. The banks which is the life blood of the economy nearly collapsed the US economy. If D.C. didn’t invest, we’d be a much worse situation right now. You can’t compare a national economy to your own personal household income/expenditures. It may sound logical, but it’s not. The economy of a nation is a whole different ball game.
      Lastly, Obama has done a Great job in only (5) months. And it’s going to take a Long time to fix the huge mess he inherited.

      • debra

        Terry…Please list for us exactly what it is that he has done in 5 months. WE will all be waiting for you list..

      • tedg

        Typical lib. Attack Rush, fox,o’rielly etc. But msnbc, abc ,cbs etc would NEVER
        LIE while broadcasting from Bamas house Notice you couldn’t refute a single
        FACT. It must really stink to be so down on ammunition that your throwing turds at a tank. Just curious, what so called media outlet do you derive your ever so superior intellect from that facts are now irrevellant?

  • Joann Cooper

    I am registered democrat but I want change and it isn’t for Obama. I am with everybody on this page.

    • 13th Gen. American

      Thats it Joann. It isnt about Dems and Reps. Its about the dems going so far left it doesnt resemble most of the people there any more. Also the Reps are moving far left to apease people and they dont represent either. When I was younger I was a Dem. till I realized there were issues as a Christian I couldnt vote for. Then the Reps are moving exactly there. We might have differences on some issues but it doesnt matter what party you belonged to what is happening is definitely change….for the worst.

    • tedg

      Do I dare say ditto. I went independent for the fist time in my life. The fastest(only?)
      growing party.

  • Joann Cooper

    Obama will have all the power to do what he wishes. He has control of GM. Pretends
    he wouldn’t run a car company. Although, he fires and tells them who cannot have a raise. /these american people are being fooled by the wolf in sheeps clothing. He has such a smooth tongue. I am with all you people. I have no idea what I can do . We need to get our voices heard.

    • coleman

      SEND THEM A E-MAIL EVERYDAY LIKE I DO ,BE NICE BUT FRAM TELL

        Sorry you forgot they get 100% for life no matter how they F up this country. Where else can you do a bad job, Dont do what the employers(us) tell them lay the blame on someone else . Lie cheat and steal AND then get 100% benifits for life. Do you think they really care? If only for the power rush it gives them what other reason for them to stay?

      Joanna: It’s because taxpayers demanded congress and Obama do something about exorbitant CEO salaries and perks of companies who indulged in bail out funds!! It doesn’t matter what Pres Obama does or doesn’t do…. you people will Always find fault even if you have to invent lies and deceit.
      Go Obama Go!!

      • tedg

        The only people who have a right to determine CEO salaries are the share holders. Just like our elected representatives determine bamas salary. When a
        man who flies an entourage of 500 people,200 secret service,12 cars and a helicopter to Europe for a conference has the audacity to set ceo salaries, God help us all. Oh lets not forget those Oh so cute dates to NYC, Like there is no theater to be seen in DC.

    I agree with all the comments on this page. It is time to let Obama know that we are going to stand for our rights , for freedom and every thing the founding fathers put in the Constitution. I hope someone can figure out how to get through to Obama what he and his guys are doing to this Country.

      Albert: What the Hell are you talking about??!! You said, “It is time to let Obama know that we are going to stand for our rights , for freedom and every thing the founding fathers put in the Constitution.”
      **Obama has institued a Web site: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/
      He has demostrated more freedom, transparency, and implemented a line of communication to the general public like no other president or public official in history!!! He continuously and consistantly solicits the Public’s suggestions and comments. He is truly a president for the people.

      The majority of people on this site are bunch of Lunatics!!!

        the mental patients in the hospital remind me of you Teri…EVERYONE IS NUTS BUT ME. heard on msnbc about one of BHO speeches. Read Fox news regard the same speech.Both had taken his speech out of contex and slanted it the way they wanted it. continue to believe BHO and the dems,talk down fox news,etc…But what happens when you,your children and grand-children do get a job and have to give 50 % to the government that f’ed up Social Security,Medicare,Medicaid.Amtrack,The VA and everything they ran. Bush was a lamb duck president,so if you must blame anyone find out who ran congress…all Bush did was sign his name

        Wont release the Whitehouse Guest list. And what about the promise not to raise taxes on anyone making less than 250,000. Who do you think pays that tobacco tax. Damn!!! Facts are a BITCH. And yes. I heard it on Limbaugh. Does that make it less true?

      • Tom B

        I couldn’t agree with you more Teri, about most the people on this site. Keep it up. On a different note, what we really need to do is all pull together and let our rep. know that we need a health care insuance system that works like so many of the other countries of the world. Let them know that we want a single payer system, at least a public opption of some kind. We can’t have these big insurance companies scraping so much money off the top. This is just one of the many thing that can help get this country out of the problems we’re in. Just because I have good insurance, I know that I’m also paying to have uninsured people get the treatment they need. Everyone in this counry should have access to good cheep health insuance. That would save me money in the long run.

      • DixieConnie

        Teri: I believe he has done all of the things you have listed but not for us, its cause he has such a HUGH EGO, he loves to hear himself talk and how he looks on TV. You remind me of the one that stick their head in the sand.

      First Alberta, you dont have to retype your name. It automaticaly comes up. Second, Like some have said. Send e;mails. Letters phone calls and show up to tea parties. Tell friends Get them motivated too. If your not good at writing and formulating your thoughts find someone who is and get them to do it. Join a 9-12 group.Hey do you remember that coke commercial where they are all singing? The one where they are all holding hands or locking arms.Its like that. If we go as individuals but in groups our voices will be louder. They cant miss us even if the liberal media,and Obama dismisses us. The world is going the way God said it would and it seems like were all in a bad dream. A really really bad dream. It is sad to see the greatness of America, flaws and all, that were built over 300 years be stripped of her glory in just 1. It is sad but we dont have to stand idly by and take it. I do not want to face God and have him ask what did I do to defend his word, country,laws. Even if I do something small,it will at least be something. I wont go down or let America go down without a fight.I will be out of town and found a tea party near there.

          Just to say to all the VETS. out there. No service to our country was or is in vain. If you had not all this would have happened sooner. Since the begining of her to WWII to now our country has just prospered and even with all her flaws she is the most wonderful place on the planet to live. Obama is targeting Vets. Reps or independants or christians because of what they all represent on a whole. GOD! It is offensive to him and his cronies because he knows it is those with the knowledge of Christ, in any and all religions, that is the only thing standing in his way of his “Change: Im not saying Obama is the Anti- Christ, the big kahoona Anti-Christ but he sure is leading the way for him to step in and take over. Everything on his agenda is in the bible. Lets not go down without a fight! Lets make it as hard for him to get his way as possible. I dont care what color or religion or lack of one he is. Its his policies that have got to go!!!!!

          coleman: Thank you for your service. You are a true American. My son serves in the Airforce, 4 years now and he just re-enlisted. I pray for him everyday. He has done 2 tours in Iraq. Still don’t understand,but he will be going back in November ’09. If Obama is so good and he is pulling troops out of Iraq, then someone tell me, why are they still sending troops in. See, the news does not report correctly. This country has gone nuts. In God We Trust.

    TO: GERALD OF WESTLAND; What are you talking about??? Childmolesters???
    I haven’t the foggiest idea of what you’re referring to. The article above refers to invoking measures that will prevent and protect you, me and the US economy from future unethical and risky banking, finance and investment transactions/endeavors which spurred our current economic recession. So what are you referring to?????

    • GERALD OF WESTLAND

      It appears you are well read,the homosexual Reid and several others are to pass another hate crime bill that protects child molesters and in California the government wants children to be informed of homosexual life styles via school education classes! I may be out of line to put in with the banking,etc. and I do apologize to you..But this country is going downhill fast and I do wish people would see where we are going and not just listen to the words.

  • AmSnuffy

    I have spend 28 years of my life defending this great country as a member of the US Air Force, I am also an immigrant who came from a communist socialist country, and I see things that have happen in the last 5 month that my father and mother are saying happen in my birth country, and it’s a the road to socialism, take from the hard working middle class law abiding, taxpaying, citizens and give it to those that squander the hard earned money that individuals have earned with the sweat of their brows, how can we put individuals in charge of departments that do not follow the laws of this country as in example secretary of the treasury anyone else that owed that much in back taxes would go to jail with no questions asked, these Czars that have been appointed by the President they are not elected official so they would not have to answer to no one but him and can come and go as they please, and continue to dish our money like there was no tomorrow, well I have faith in God and there will be a tomorrow for my children and grand children, and do not want them to have to pick up the tab for all this wasteful spending, and yes I would like to take my wife to a Broadway show on a taxpayers dime, another issue is the previous administration warned congress about Fannie May and Freddy Mac but the Dem. Did not want to hear any of it so if there is anyone to blame is Obama’s buddy Barny Franks but see Terri some of us do read the financial state of the country and you said the banking system was ready to collapse ask Barny why instead of blaming why don’t you try to correct the issues and not call individuals idiots, you Libs are always in the blame game and are scared to debate anyone that has any difference of opinion and asks hard line questions that is why the President mentions Fox, Limbaugh, Hannity, and others that are critical of his administration, because him and the individuals he surrounds himself with would not have answer to the hard line questions that they would asked if interviewed.

    EVERYTHING HE WANTS TO CHANGE COSTS THE UNDERDOG MORE MONEY WHY SHOULD HE CARE HE HAS A LOT OF MONEY?

      Yes, as a matter of fact. Obama made a little under $3 million last year. His income tax return was on the internet. Its true girls and boys, your president is RICH.

      • Carol

        I know he has money and lots of it but he doesn’t really understand what it is like to do without most of your life.

        It is not that I am blaming him for being wealthy because I am not at all but he just doesn’t completely understand what suffering everyday really means even if he says he does.

    I would like to thank you guys that served our country.

  • James Corbin

    In 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs andwas wasting his timebut, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies. ‘ Barry’ ( that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid, both from Pakistan. During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a ’round the world’ trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia, next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roomate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family. Question-Where did he get the money for this trip? nether I, nor any of my children would havehad money for a trip like this when they were in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York. It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack – not Barry.. Doyou know what the tution is at Columbia? It’s not cheap! to say the least. Where did he get money for tuition? Student Lones? Maybe. AfterColumbia he went to Chicago to work as a community Organizer for $ 12, 000. a year. Why Chicago? Why not Ny? He was already living in New York. By ‘ chance’ he met Antoin ‘Tony’ Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria, and aeal estate developer in Chicago.
    Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery. Rezko, was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Decade’ by the Arab-American Business and Professional Assoc’. Abouttwo years lator, Obama entered Harvard Law School. Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvart Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans? After Law School, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis,Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented ‘Rezar’ whichRezko’s firm. Rezko was one of Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with ‘seed money’ for his U.S. Senate race. In 2005, Obama Purchased a new home in Kenwood District of Chicago for $ 1.65 million (less than asking price). With All those Student Loans- Where did he get the money for property? On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purched the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $ 3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home was purched. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko. Now, Obama was running for president. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss. She was Obama’s chief advisor and he made no magor decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Do we see a pattern here? On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley advisor to Obama was sacked after the press found out he was having regular contacts with ‘Hamas’, which controls Gaza (Remember the campaign contributions his campaign tried to hide under the state of Ga. which reallt were from the Gaza Strip ) and is connected with Iran. Burried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about he war until after he is elected, and he will Take care of things’. ( Basically what he said was don’t make any deals with the current president but wait until the new president is elected and he also spoke to a high ranking military offical and ask him not to make any major decisions about the war until the new president is elected.) I wonder who he thought that was going to be? Oh, and by the way, remember the college roomates that were born in Pakistan? They were in charge of all those ‘small’ Internet Campaign contribution for Obama. Wheredid that money come from? The poor & middle classin this country? Or could it be from the Middle East? ( Like the affore mentioned Gaza Strip where it is documented he recieved contributions and tried to conceal them under the state of Ga.) It is illegal to accept contributions from anyone other than a U.S. citizen, so why was nothing done about this?

      Why are you so concerned with where Obama got tuition money?
      Frankly, your comments are incredible, unfounded and paranoid.

      Faith means not wanting to know what is true. — Friedrich Nietzsche

      The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life. — Sigmund Freud

      • DixieConnie

        Norm: Are you serious? Should we not be concerned where this man has come from . This is interesting. Remember when Bush had his whole entire history put everywhere and all of reactions he got with the fact that he had had a DWI. Now, now, it doesn’t matter the Obama has done drugs, never served in the services of our country. Remember when everyone was so upset cause Bush had only been in the Reserves. What about Obama? Has he served his country or maybe he has, but not in the US Services, and he hangs out with our enemies. What is wrong with you people? Are you so blind that you can not or will not see the truth. For God sake WAKE UP. This man is here to destroy the little freedoms we have and you don’t care. WHY?

      Thank you for that expose’, James. Research is vital to let the “sunshine” in !
      The failing of the electorate is that they do not take the time to do the research

      as fact and just follow along rather than question.

    This latest White House insanity is no different than what a boa constrictor does. Slowly, its prey is squeezed, strangled and consumed. In nature, this is natural. In the real world (where people are supposedly adults) this is unnatural, and only a psychotic, political delusion can make an unnatural death seem like ecstasy.
    America is not obligated to accept or endure a political psychosis. Will someone please do a complete psychological profile of this so-called leadership? Washington needs top-to-bottom, professional therapy IMMEDIATELY. America must be FREE of this insanity.

    Letter from an American. This states exactly what our nation faces:

    I’m a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you’re willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me?

    Well, these are briefly my views and issues for which I seek representation:

    One, illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution. P.S., I’m not a racist. This isn’t to be confused with legal immigration.

    Two, the TARP bill, I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you no, but you did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.

    Three: Czars, I want the circumvention of our checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution and honor it.

    Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There is more to say.

    Five, universal healthcare. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision. Don’t you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night and then go on break. Slow down!

    Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real obligations. Why don’t you start there.

    Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes. Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census over with our taxpayer money. I don’t trust them with our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.

    Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs. That is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person. Why do you want me to hate my employers? Why ‑‑ what do you have against shareholders making a profit?

    Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.

    Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we’ll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. Have you ever ripped off a Band‑Aid? We will pull together. Great things happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.

    Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let’s have it. Let’s say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk. Please try ‑‑ please stop manipulating and trying to appease me with clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding things from me.

    Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.

    Take a breath. Listen to the people. Let’s just slow down and get some input from some nonpoliticians on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed reading our bills into law. I am not an activist. I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent. I work. I’m busy. I’m busy. I am busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.

    I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained? I do not. It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still cannot. There is such urgency and recklessness in all of the recent spending.

    From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it to stop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on you to bring our concerns to Washington. Our president often knows all the right buzzword is unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don’t want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we’re morons.

    We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming. We will be heard and we will be represented. You think we’re so busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work , pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone and we are now looking up at you. You have awakened us, the patriotic spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far. Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, we have their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured. They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office. We have cancelled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish. We didn’t ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not come in violence, but we are angry. You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us when hewill rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.

    Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don’t care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the people are coming.

    Here is a uTube video that will uplift your spirits……it is
    a song about America ! Sung by Celtic Woman
    http://celticwoman-oamerica.blogspot.com/

    Here are the words:
    O, America Lyrics
    Music: William Joseph
    Words: Brendan Graham

    O, America you’re calling,
    I can hear you calling me:
    You are calling me to be true to thee,
    True to thee… I will be.

    O, America you’re weeping,
    Let me heal your wounded heart:
    I will keep you in my keeping,
    Till there be… a new start.

    And I will answer you, and I will take your hand,
    And lead you… to the sun:
    And I will stand by you…do all that I can do,
    And we will be… as one.

    O, America I hear you,
    From your prairies to the sea,
    From your mountains grand, and all through this land,
    You are beautiful to me.

    And… O, America you’re calling,
    I can hear you calling me:
    You are calling me to be true to thee,
    True to thee… I will be.

    And I will answer you, and I will take your hand,
    And lead you… to the sun:
    And I will stand by you… do all that I can do,
    And we will be…as one.

    O, America you’re calling…
    I will ever answer thee.

    My fellow American patriots, no marketing firm could have started this incredible spontaneous Tea Party Movement. It is totally driven by love, passion and concern of the America people.

    The passionate voice of one man, Rick Santelli, ignited a fire which spread across America. You came by the hundreds of thousands to tea parties across our great country. Your message was loud and clear, “ENOUGH!…STOP the hijacking of our Freedom, Liberty and Culture!”

    In my NEW Tea Party unity song, “We The People”, I humbly try to be your voice. I thought, what if every patriot joined and sang together. What would it sound like and what would we say? Brothers and sisters, from my heart to yours, I give you, “WE THE PEOPLE”.

      Sandra TX: went to the website. BEAUTIFUL. you did a great job. Thank you for this and thank you for caring enough to do this and for your talents. Let Freedom Ring. Ring in the ears of those that make the trouble and blame others and then try to fix it. I think this is called job security; at our “we the people” expense. Thanks again. God bless.

    DixieConnie:
    Sorry if I wasn’t clear. Lloyd Marcus wrote and sang the song. I wanted everyone
    to hear it and be uplifted by it. Yes, We the People need to unify and work together
    and use each of our individual talents to raise our spirit in a positive way to accomplish the goal of restoring our Constitution.
    At issue is the creative energy that will attract the positive outcome that we all desire. Like attracts like. So for the great restorative outcome for all our people, we need to proceed in that manner. Bickering only keeps our eyes and hearts from going forward. We certainly do disagree about what needs to be done. But following the path of destruction as the progressives do for personal gain over their fellow beings will cause much hardship. Let’s hope we can open their minds and educate them as to those principles that they were not taught in the secular progressive school system. It seems as though revenge is the by word at the moment. If every American would read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they would understand where the true conservative is coming from.
    It is for the rights of every single individual that we strive. How did we lose our concern for each other ? What so coarsened our society in this great nation that
    led us to the present state of affairs?

      Again, I say, GREED and EGO’s. It is so obvious to me that some truly think they are better than others. Look at Washington. I read yesterday that Congress continues to create problems so that they can solve them otherwise they would all be without a job. And we would have more money in our pockets. hhhhuuummmmm.

    An IQAir Healthpro Plus saved my spouse and I from struggling whereas several brush fires over the past few years have lapped at our neighborhood. Earlier than having the IQAir, we both suffered gravely at any time when brush fires had been anyplace inside 50 miles.
