Obama’s Proposed Regulations Could Cost Country Billions

September 2, 2011 by  

A letter was sent by the Obama Administration to Boehner that detailed seven regulations that the President thought should be implemented in the coming months.President Barack Obama and Republican lawmakers are squaring off over proposed regulations put forward by the Commander in Chief, The Washington Times reported.

A letter was sent by the Obama Administration to Representative John Boehner (R-Ohio) that detailed seven regulations that the President thought should be implemented in the coming months. The proposed rules dealt with restrictions that would be handled by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Transportation, according to the newspaper.

“Before finalizing any of them, we will take account of public comments and concerns and give careful consideration to cost-saving possibilities and alternatives,” the President said in his letter.

Republican leadership has noted that they will fight against the proposed regulations, rules that could cost American companies a significant amount of money due to the cost of compliance for businesses, The Associated Press reported.

Officials from the EPA have countered the Republicans’ arguments, saying that the regulations would help lower healthcare costs, but there may be a more heated debate once the proposals are officially put before legislators, reported the news agency.

    Well, well, well, what else is new? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • Jana

      Well Hooray I just heard on the radio Obama withdrew this proposal according to the Associated Press.

      That is a great tactic, make up a lot of restrictions on the farmers and the businesses, then just to show how really great he is (NOT) he takes them away. He wants to be our hero.

      That’s right up there with not spending money you don’t have is saving money you don’t have.I just wish we could trust Obama, but we can’t. If he is elected next time, it will be so much worse because he won’t be worrying about getting reelected.

      • EdinNola

        Jana, You can trust Obama. You can trust him fully: to attempt in everyway he can to bring the free world into that twisted Communist inspired concept of utopia that he has in his head. He has absolutely no connection with reality or America. He is a “community organizer” designed from birth to destroy anything resembling establishment. He is totally predictable, if you can rid yourself of the American concept of truth and fair play. Those are concepts that Obama simply does not understand, much less embrace.

      • Richard M Peck

        Just like lowering the debt by saving 40 Billion and borrowing 1.4 Trillion. I want to go to there dream school.

    • eddie47d

      I hear crickets from you all when the lack of Wall Street regulations caused this country a couple of trillions in losses. I guess it’s okay for those upper crust to gain financially while the rest of the country slides downward.

      • Song

        eddie I have never heard anyone advocate a pass for “Wall Street” from anyone on these boards, however, you are truly naive if you believe that more rules and regs are going to do anything to affect change. What is lacking is the ENFORCEMENT of the rules and regs already in place. I don’t know anyone that is a proponent of “crony capitalism”, other than the buffoons sitting on capital hill whom are all heavily invested in Wall Street.

        • eddie47d

          Wall Street is our Capitalistic system or controls much that goes on in this country. Conservatives and Liberals too invest heavily in Wall Street so to say we/you don’t believe in crony capitalism is a far stretch. It’s abundant and accepted.

          • Helen M Nanney

            Eddie, Capitalism has a lot of flaws, not because of them, but because we have not as a nation stood up and said, no. Our real enemy is not Captialism that abuses power, but Communism which takes away citizen power, and runs a mind and body controled state, with no freedom of dissent.

          • tsaray

            eddie: I understand your concern. Crony Capitalism or as i prefeer to call Capitalistic Imperialism (control of wealth through an elitist system) is not the Free Market Enterprise system that built this country.
            Thanks to the PROGRESSIVES (BEGINNING WITH WOODROW WILSON AND TEDDY ROOSEVELT) you have the beginning of the end of Free Market Enterprise and the start of total control by elitist Banks, Giant International Corporations, and powerful politicians. They have lead us into belief systems that are contrary to the U.S. Constitution and to the principals of true Free Market economics. They have hoodwinked us and divided us in a manner that has kept themselves in control. The Federal Reserve Bank, the Federal Income Tax and the TAX FREE Foundation have warped and convoluted our economy with an incredible transfer of wealth and power that has infected governments and banking worldwide. The problem is that we cannot see it much less understand what has happened. You need to do some extensive homework before you can even comprehend the impact of what has transpired under the guise of benevolence but is in reality extremely evil. You and most all Americans have been lulled into a coma with a long term propaganda scheme called public relations designed by Edward Bernaise (grandson of Sigmund Freud) under the auspices of Wilson and Roosevelt. Wake up and smell the toxins — you and I and all of us have been defrauded and betrayed. The Congress continues on this bent as they become sucked in by the system whereby they must go along to get along to get along and then also become wealthy themselves — You give me several hundred thousand dollars every year under the table and I will be in your pocket too.

      • EdinNola

        Because I can’t help myself being a teacher: The lack of regulation that you refer to was deliberately created by non other than your favorite President Clinton in the year 2000. The insertion of this exception into his “Commodity Futures Modernization Act” and the job of making sure that “CDSs” were totally protected from scrutiny was carried out by Larry Summers, Treasury Secretary of the day.

        I have heard a lot of spin, trying to place blame on a “Republican congress”. What a lot of claptrap.

        The very day that the Commodity Futures Modernization Act went before Congress, Summers issued a proclamation to the press and Congress that Clinton would not sign the bill into law if it was not “exactly as he wanted it to be”. Gee didn’t I hear of someone named Larry Summers being Obama’s principle financial advisor?

        • Jana

          Very good memory and recall there. Great post.

            …and you keep supporting the financial crooks that shaft us.Where’s the change in their behavior or did you make too much money off of them to do any complaining?

            “…and you keep supporting the financial crooks that shaft us.”

            Prove it eddie. Show where I have supported the “financial crooks that shaft us”.

      • Bruce

        Eddie, Let me ask you a qusetion do you know where the $16 Trillion US Tax payer dollars went?

      • DaveH

        So many brainwashed people, so little time.

        The same Big Businesses that you fear are the ones who benefit most from regulations. How better to stifle their less well-healed competitors who can’t afford to jump through all the ridiculous hoops?
        Eddie, read this and wake up:

        • eddie47d

          I’m awake Dave H. Wouldn’t that be a delightful system to be living in. Maybe it could work if allowed to be put into practice. In reality I see few sign of it being practiced as author Anderson mentioned.I try and look at the bright side of people as Anderson assumed would happen and give them the benefit of the doubt. In practice it doesn’t happen often enough to justify having no “regulations”. Maybe those regulations won’t make a person honest but it does put a little backbone into the law if you can catch a crooked business man that shafts you. It’s nice to know there are people like Anderson with something to believe in and that is good. What I have seen is that businessmen or individuals are not always honest with a handshake or even the proper paperwork. I’ve been shafted by a bank,a business deal and a land deal. The bank covered up for the business who skipped town and wouldn’t help the authorities in finding the persons who skipped town. The land shysters overvalued the land and then declared bankruptcy and kept the money. They are still in business and are still multi- millionaires in Texas. That was several years ago yet I read about it happening to others all the time to this day. They say folks should Trust But Verify and I did both and got skunked.

        • bob wire

          one thing is certain , regulation locks someone out and someone in.

          Who’s the winner or loser in not always as clear as you might think.

          I figure that the loser be Me current withstanding! but not always.

      • Jay

        By the upper crust eddie, do you mean the one’s that own our debt, and our azzez, including yours? You putz!

        • eddie47d

          You must be talking about pizzas since I didn’t mention anything about upper crust.Then again they do make allot of dough.

      • http://yahoo realist

        eddie 90% of the people that i know were against the wall street bail out and still think and know that it was a bad idea!!

        every time the government thinks they can help they make it f n worst!
        what does the government know about business ? post office, amtrack

        when the government gets out of the way then we will start to prosper and create jobs !!!!

      • http://yahoo realist

        eddie here r 2 more examples of the government knowing squat about business ,,, solar energy our great hope to save the planet and create millions of new jobs !!!

        solandia i think was their name ,,out of california recieved 530 mil in federal grants yet opps filing bankrup ,,,, hahahah they said they could not compete to much regulation ,,, opps again

        and the other company obummer in chief even made a speech at their plant about how great of a job they were doing opps agian ,,packed up and went to china ,,,, hummm less regulation ,,, no unions

      • DonnieB

        It is not a lack of laws it IS the laws that allow Crony Capitalism that cause problems. There are massive amounts of regulations on every business. The Obama admin doesn’t worry about laws anyway. If they can’t shove it through Congress, well a Presidential edict or rules from unelected officials wreck havoc.

        Not only that, the government is doing a great job of selectively enforcing laws. Can you say illegal aliens?

      Nothing new for God; country leaders have been pulling scams like this for a long long time.

      And government proposing scams and then changing them to less onerous as “improvement” is an old old way to get bad things through. People ought to be trained in the how of political scams so they could see through these right away!! But aren’t!

    • DanB

      I would not block everything the President does. In fact, I would encourage him to do the one thing that costs lots of money but gets him out of our way–take more vacations, Mr. President. He probably costs us less when swimming in the ocean or drinking at a pub overseas then actually do his job as President of the United States of America.

      • jim

        YES ole barry needs to STAY on vacation but NOT at places that COST US 50 GRAND a week!! He needs to STAY on vacation until we can KICK these LIb Dem IDIOTS to the curb and back in the GUTTER where they came from and where they belong!!

        • CaptTurbo

          50 grand a week? It’s more like 50 grand in the time it takes you to read this reply. Obama is a country killer.

          • Christin


            That’s for sure… why can’t he go to ‘Camp David’ like all the other presidents. It is secure and their are already accommodations for the secret service and staff… and it wouldn’t cost US so much.

    • eddie47d

      That’s what you have been doing Freedom Fighter so how has that been working out?

    • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

      Sorry, no can do. He has already greased the skids and made sure that his proposals cannot be blocked. Not even by the people. He is in the pay of those who have been practising many many years in how to capture whole nations.

  • s c

    Why should we have faith in the EPA? When ultraleft loonies finally understood that by being bureaucrats they could use their vast, theoretical knowledge of paranoid utopian schemes in government, they were able to make America miserable. That’s a decent way to understand the childish mindset at the EPA (and Congress in general).
    That way, whoever they’re trying to please might like them, and they could try their hands at being substitutes for the original tree-hugging bureaucrats who are no longer taking up space at the EPA. I don’t care how much they love Mama Earth. I don’t care if they get patted on their fuzzy heads by people who claim to like them. I don’t care if they think they know more about any given topic than the rest of us.
    The EPA is infested with bubble-headed bureaucrats. If they want to please Mama Earth, let them clean toilets. Let them plant trees. Let them move to another planet. Let them be gone! And don’t forget to take your ‘leaders’ with you. It wouldn’t be right to be without someone to tuck your sorry asses into bed and pet those fuzzy, empty heads.

    • Charles bond

      The EPA believes in Mother Earth as their GOD and would rather see the American people live in the stone age than improve their lives and that goes for the rest of mankind. The American people believes in giving everyone a chance to prove themselves. So why do the American people take so long to to see all the shackles being added to the people on a daily basses? It is time to remove Obama and his whole adminastration that favers other countries over the American people which they think should keep on footing the bill. The Democrats and the Republicans have took turns running America for over 200 years and has the American people over $14,000,000,000,000.00 in debt to prove it. It is time to research the facts and sift through all the propaganda to see clearly enough to vote for the only person that will once again make America great and respected the world over. That person is RON PAUL and you may have heard some things about RON PAUL you dissagree with at this time. The democrats,republicans and the news media will demonize RON PAUL as they have in the past, because they will be exposed for what they have done to this country and the American people.They would rather let this country be destroyed than admit they are wrong. Just do your research and be honest for your childrens future…………. Charles of Waveland,MS.

      • CaptTurbo

        More then just demonize Dr. Paul, the media has ignored the man because they fear his unwavering sense of direction.

        • moonbeam

          CaptTurbo, I took a poll today that listed all the candidates. I picked Ron Paul and so did a lot of other people. RP and Perry were in the lead. Paul had 34% and Perry had 30% of the votes.

          If I can find the poll again I’ll post it.

      • Christin

        Charles bond,

        “The EPA believes in Mother Earth as their God”…

        I use to believe that, too, but now I believe the EPA is just a corrupt organization working alongside globalist/progressives that puts up an ‘Environmental Front’, when in fact they are wealthy money collectors and private business killers… kind of sounds criminal, doesn’t it?!

        • Helen M Nanney

          I LIKE RON PAUL. HE HAS A GRASP ON THE MILITARY AND WANTS TO BRING THEM HOME, and on economics, and business. They will run him into the ground about his age. I am older then him, and know more then most upstarts, and am just as mentally keen as I was twenty years ago. You follow the decline for enough years, you get wiser. If he has Michael or Sarah Palin for a running mate, we will have a young canidate to take over if necessary, and they can learn a lot from him. I like Sarah’s courage about taking on big oil and defeating them. It is her big gas line coming into the lower states that is keeping house gas so low. Michael will be just as good. hard to decide, so many good canidates.

          • Helen M Nanney

            Sorry, I have a child here by the name of Michael, and typed in his name. I ment Michelle.

        • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

          It IS criminal, but abetted by their dumbing down of our formerly astute populace, and changing the goals from the Public Good for all, to private money and power for a few minority people.

          Following Rome by feasts and spectacles, while a few insiders do each other in for control and to satisfy their cruelty on the serfs,

          They have read “The Fall of Rome”, and are following their blueprints! Only with more modern, and more horrific devices and crueler plans for the pawns.

      • william in New Mexico

        I, honestly hope the republicans take the Presidency, Senate and House in the 2012 election. You people who vote for them will get exactly what you deserve: elimination of SS, constitutional amendments, EPA Medicare, medicaid, welfare, unemployment insurance, wall street regulations, individual civil rights and etc. Vote for who you want, and you may just get them.

  • David

    It’s the common goal of the democrats-raise the cost of doing business in the US thru regulation, unions, etc and drive business out. This creats millions more who would eventually become dependent on the govermnet. Welfare = more demo voters.

    You are a very weak minded group of people.

    • eddie47d

      If you don’t like welfare then enact laws stating that you must work for that welfare. Tell those folks that there is a whole field of tomatoes that need picking and you are obligated to get your butt out there or no pay. As far as businesses go where was their rainy day fund from all those profits they were making 8-15 years ago? They didn’t save for the down years and let their greedy lack of good judgement get in the way. They were too busy handing out obscene bonuses and golden parachutes to see the writing on the wall. The American worker did indeed suffer for their misjudgements.

      • Song

        People have tried to require work from welfare recipients with dismal results. In a government housing project for example, it was required that those living there contribute to the upkeep of the building and grounds by mowing the lawn, picking up trash, painting etc., and guess what, the ACLU got involved and sued for discrimination and won.

        • Song

          Oh, and as far as those failing businesses go… they should not have been bailed out by the govt.

          • Mary Kay Andrews

            i am so sick and tired of certain people screaming about the profits that businesses make and the paychecks that the officers of corporations get. Let’s be clear. Those businesses are OWNED by the people running them or the stockholders who have invested in them. They have a right to make a profit, pay an enormous wage to their ceo and give out golden parachutes. My business belongs to ME not you. I pay my staff wages and if they don’t like the wage I pay, they can go look elsewhere for another job that suits them. If you don’t like a business, let’s just say it’s General Motors, you certainly don’t have to buy their product. Now, let’s talk about government regulations. It would take a book to recount all the regulations I have to abide by and pay for I might add. I pay the city, state and federal fees, taxes and commissions. What? You think that I owe you something? You don’t want to purchase my product, go somewhere else!

      • professor

        The muslim, pretending to be president, just added another Million to the Medicaid rolls…..he needs the votes! He has doubled the number of Medicaid recipients….

        There must be, at least, twenty percent of us that are still working so we can pay everyone’s bills…

        • Helen M Nanney

          Obama has been talking that we need to bring thousands of Rewanda refugies into the US. It is his cronies causing the refugee problem. I wonder if he has brought them in, and they are the war mongers praying upon the people of rewanda? I have heard nothing lately, but I have a feeling that may be where the well fare increase went. Besides that would be more voting base for him.

          Most of the people that are on welfare now cannot find jobs, without going out of state. Many do not have the gas money to go any where, or cannot for health reasons. Welfare is not bad, it just includs so many non illigals, and they even get housing, transportation, health care, schooling, etc. That is what has pushed up our well fare. Fifty percent of Americans are out of work, and have families, and need help for now.

          If the money was spent in ways to encourage corporations to blossem and hire, we would not have so much welfare. His policies like cap and trade, now with a diferent name, is killing jobs. Corporations have laid off thousands as the regulations, were so expensive, especially the health care bill, they could not keep in business as usual. Not all corporations are crooked. Many are true Americans, and hire a lot of people. Most of the big dishonest ones are of the NWO groupe.

            Not only that he wants to further relations between us and the Islamists.

            An unprecedented collaboration between the Obama administration and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC, formerly called the Organization of the Islamic Conference) to combat “Islamophobia” may soon result in the delegitimization of freedom of expression as a human right.

    get rid of obama and all his regulations 2012 is coming,
    vote out all this garbage——— PERRY FOR PRESIDENT

    • Jan

      I received this in an email regarding Rick Perry:

      Jose Soto knows a gay prostitute that has been with Rick Perry. Perry, of course, has a very anti-gay political profile for cover.

      Send tips on the rampaging bisexual adulterer Rick Perry to Robert Morrow – 512-306-1510

      Here is what we are learning about
      Rick Perry
      Please forward this to your email list
      Ask leads/sources to call Robert Morrow
      1) Rick Perry has been mining strip clubs and escort services all over Texas for a very long time. Rampant adultery. Basically, Rick has his entourage literally go in the clubs and get the girls; they rent the hotel rooms; they call the escort services. Rick has been living in the gutter as much as Bill Clinton. I just talked with someone familiar with the San Antonio strip club scene and he confirmed what I know from Austin. A new source will be revealing that Perry on 2 separate occasions in approx 2006 had age 18-19 year old women delivered to his hotel room. That is just the tip of Perry’s rampant whore bisexual mongering.

      2) The gay rumors are very likely true, too. We have 2 gay men working on getting their friends, who they say have had gay sex with Rick Perry, to go public. There are also 2 other credible gay men who probably had sex with Rick Perry who we are working. 4 total. I have not met these 4 primary sources yet; the going is slow, but I think over a period of months something will happen. When Bill Clinton ran for president in 1992, he by then had hundreds of women, but only 3 went public in 1992 – Gennifer Flower, Sally Perdue, Bobbie Ann Williams. Then they were greeted with Hillary’s terror campaign of private detectives.

      3) I think Rick Perry uses cocaine a lot. Remember the stripper in 2009 told me he was “too coked up” to get it up or perform sexually. Someone close to Rick’s supposed cocaine dealer called me recently.

      4) Anita Perry has 4-5 male friends herself according to friends of her friends. So Anita is a little whore, too. I think Rick and Anita have a pure Hillary/Bill Clinton arrangement where they have sex with whoever they want. Anita almost never lets lecher Rick kiss her on the lips; always closing her eyes, puckering her lips, then looking away from him. I think I know why!

      Rick Perry is a highly compromised man and his over the top dysfunctional *personal life* is an absolute gold mine for media, GOP opponents & Demo opponents. Really, it is stunning that this stuff has not come out already.

      I think it is just a matter of time before a credible primary source on Rick’s debauchery comes forward. Ask your sources on Rick Perry to call me.

      • Jana

        Obviously you are a left wing plant on this site. You are probably hitting all of the sites saying this same thing.
        I went to the site you provided and it is a Conservative bash site. Sorry, lies don’t bode well here.
        When someone tries to spread rumors and lies it shows just how desperate the left really is.
        Just because I am defending Rick Perry doesn’t mean I am planning on voting for him AT THIS TIME, but I will tell you one thing Jan, you haven’t done anything to put him down, all you have done is show yourself and your leftist buddies up for what and who you are yourself.

        • Kate8

          Jana – As I was reading Jan’s post I was wondering if this was actually a Leftist smear campaign.

          I am no fan of Perry’s…I don’t really know that much about him other than what makes national press. But if this is a lie, it is a new low for the Left.

      • Helen M Nanney

        I honestly have been a little suspecious of Rick Perry. He has made a stumble, about his policies. He changed over from a Democrat to a Republican so Bush Sr could replace him as governor when Bush was elected President. Bush is of the NWO Group, and for years they have controled both Parties, except regan whom was to popular to beat out, and Robert and John kennedy, which both were killed for being to American to cave in to the NWO group. They have been buying up the media and controling our politics since 1933, and our health care. So use caution. He may be a plant to wipe out the ones they fear getting in. I could be wrong. Just watch and listen for toung slips.

        • Jana

          You may be right and, you may not but like you said we must be watchful.
          I do know that the site that Jan sent us to was a left wing blog site that was not flattering to any Conservative. So I have to take what she is saying with GREAT suspicion.
          Perry has been a fairly good Governor. I do live in Texas. I have seen him do things I didn’t like and didn’t agree with, but overall he was pretty good.

      • bob wire

        Jan , bearing false witness is violation of Christian ethic.

        and beside Perry don’t need any help being dislike here, he manages well on his own.

        and besides, every fairy I’ve ever known is extrememly good with money matters and “might” just offer the leadership this country needs today. LOL! ☺

        The very foundation of the Continental Army was constructed and overseen by an out of work Russian fairy that Franklin found on a trip to Paris. Franklin bought him passage and sent him to George Washington with a letter of introduction. It basically said, “this is one bad a$$ dude, comes highly regarded in all matters of modern military.

    Some people just don’t seem to learn from experience. It’s hard to believe that there are still those that believe the Federal Government is the solution to our problems. It should have long since become apparent to all that the Federal Government IS the cause of ALL our problems. Everything they touch becomes a disaster. How to get them out of our lives and out of our wallets should be the top priority of every thinking American.

      The problem being not that they are only weak minded, But, that they are also a bunch of lazy dirt bags, Just look at Obamas’ Aunt and Uncle. Is there any doubt as to what kind of individual he is? Refuses to open to the public his school records! Why? Because he did not go to school here and he was not born where he claims he was. Want proof? Look at his supposed birth certificate,The hospital that he claims was his birth hosp. did NOT exist at the time of his birth, Furthermore, He claims his father was a Kenyan Citizen, at time of his birth, thats’ funny as Kenya did become a country untill 1963, He is a liar and a fraud as are most of his party.

      • MAP

        In regards to our ‘great’ Liar in Chief, we acutally know nothing about him whatsoever. Is he an American? Is he muslim, Christian, atheist? Until he ran for president how many people had ever heard his name mentioned? His whole background is hazy. An investigation is what is needed, but that will not happen, because the money that put the cretin in there will see to it that that does not happen. Our whole country is run by big money and big money put him in there. For what reason we will soon enough know.

    LOOK FAMILIAR ? when you see these quotes, what party do you think of ?

    When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
    we shall become as corrupt as Europe.
    Thomas Jefferson

    The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
    who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
    Thomas Jefferson

    It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.
    A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
    Thomas Jefferson

    I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the
    pretense of taking care of them.
    Thomas Jefferson

    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
    Thomas Jefferson

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
    Thomas Jefferson

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
    Thomas Jefferson

    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
    Thomas Jefferson

    Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
    ‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property -until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’

            SUNBUM, Ok I will tell you why, You can’t Impeach a CEO and as we “don’t” have a Constitution nore Bill of Rights anylonger nore have we had in over 150 years. We do have a {Business contract} thats why you nor anyone else can toss out the bums. Even if you vote out one the replacment will saddly be no differant.
            Until we change the form of Government we have then we are doomed to more of the same.

            Please do check it out as if you don’t know the root of the problem then how may I ask can you fix the problem? You can start your investigation with Executive Order #1, from there look up what a Con / Con is. Then to make it very clear understand what happens when a Nation of states becomes the United States, as in you can find the roots of the problems we face today from 1855 – 1872.

    It seems to me that more regulations, may very well be more smoke and mirrors to distract us from the real issue, of what ever is going on behind closed doors, AGAIN. So, let’s not pass anything put forward now, until a total and full disclosure is complete, and couple of studies, funded privately. Then discussion should insure, in Congress, to investigate the will of the people. No earmarks, funding or approvals of anything, anywhere, under federal direction, unless a complete and total disclosure and investigation, and fact finding studies are completed, then presented, prior to any further discussion in Congress. In the mean while, Congress can use the time to enact such things as spending limits, debt control, tax reductions, the war in Northern Africa, the other wars, oh… and one more thing…. removal from office of any federal official, not doing the job they swore they would do.

        It is difficult, if not impossible, to understand how the progressive thought process, has taken over. Boosted by: educators that have re-written history, professionals that assisted in making poor decisions for growing children, politicians that can’t think for themselves, a large percentage of the population couldn’t be successful in survival on their own, thinking with a logic and clarity, and end up latching onto the only thing that works for them…… living on the backs of someone else. It is also almost overwhelming to grasp, much less attempt to overcome the push to grab someone else’s success, even if only to exist with it. This isn’t just a local issue… if it were, why are the borders being disolved? It is a world wide issue, that people can’t stand on their own, and get better each day at what they have chosen to do, thereby earning a living, with their own effort.
        Faced with the hordes of people that can’t do for themselves, and the overwhelming odds of teaching them, one comes to the conclusion that grasping at “hope and change” is a forlorn conclusion. However, now that we have been there, done that, and anyone with any sort of vision and logical thought process at all, can see this isn’t going to end well, for anyone, it is time to make the hard choices, and choose a path, not of least resistance, but one with a future. One that will reward those that are willing to sweat, to earn, and to improve each day with an ever richer life. And when it is all turned around, I would defy the history book writers to spin this chapter into something that doesn’t reveal the truth.. that we challanged our forefathers, and proved, beyond any doubt, any doubt at all, that
        they were right. In EVERY situation. Not just what the twisted and spun up version told you.

        • eddie47d

          Great comment Dale and I do understand your jest. I do believe that the new immigrants do work hard and society should “reward those who are willing to sweat,to earn and improve each day with an even richer life”. That fits them to a T and Americans have had it easy for so long they have lost that vision. We want that rich life without doing the hard labor for the things we have.

      Nice thought, Dale, but wishful thinking. Politicians would love to set up more committees and spend more money studying the issues, in the end obfuscating the issues to the point where nobody understands why Government is still growing.
      There is only one solution. That is for the citizens to STOP putting politicians in office who don’t promise to do their part to roll the size of Government back dramatically.
      There is only one political party that advocates the kind of Freedom that Thomas Jefferson advocated. But first people must realize that It’s better to vote for Principled People who might not get elected than to vote for the lesser of two evils which is still just evil.
      If you believe, as I do, that people should be Free to control their own bodies and property, as long as they don’t trespass on other peoples’ bodies and property, then there is only one real choice — and that is the Libertarian Party.

    A friend of mine just returned from Panama and other Latin American countries. The Panama pictures I saw containt me gantry cranes in one area than we presently have in the entire Northeast. The reality of creating a business down there is simple. One “helluva” lot less government forms and regulations.

    Now, here comes news that the Russians and Chinese have eliminated the US Dollar as the reserve currency. They are now trading in their own currencies. What does this mean? It means this. We either return the country back to the people or we cease being the United States of America.

    Why should someone have the authority to rule my personal life as long as I am not violating any social rules? Political life should become a profession taught in college. Then it would be a position of “function by being results driven” rather than being the way it is. My, Dad once said,”the secret to becoming elected is very simple.

Its much less of a problem now only because the epa made the largest polluters install better filtration systems on their smokestacks. I wonder if any of you really knows what epa does. I gather not. You should research before blindly posting or shooting from the hip.

      • MAP

        Then, I believe, that should be the duty of your state and local officials. They would be more attuned to your needs and concerns. And less inclined to feed the gluttonous parasites that feed off the federal government. Make no mistake, federal regulations of any kind, no matter the hype, serve to enrich certain groups at the expense of everyone else. Study the Constitution and you will look in vein for the authority of the federal government to be making blanket rulings on the environment. Like everything else, it was a usurpation of the power of the states.

      • Song

        First, acid rain is not a problem because like global warming it was based largely on “hype” and “junk” science. At one point acid rain was going to wipe out entire forests and render the entire planet inhabitable. LOL. You put way to much faith in an over-bloated, wasteful agency like the EPA Mikeg and as has been pointed out, it should be regulated by the state not the federal government anyway and just because people don’t support an over-reaching, over-bloated, wasteful agency like the EPA does not mean that they do not care about the environment. Stop with the never-ending lie already. It is patently dishonest and any fair-minded, thinking person knows that.

          Poluted rivers. Idaho is 2/3ed public lands. They have made millions of acres protected lands. They shut down the lumber industry.(went over seas) the mining industry, ( drilling everything, yet these same people are drilling in the rain forests, and our closed lands are rotting and dead trees. Billions over the years to fight fires, no road access. diseased trees, and the fire retardent polutes the rivers and kills fish, including the salmon. They plan all of this stuff for years. Ruin our industries with the polutant hype, and take away our jobs, and ruin the enviroment by oil spills from shipping oil from over seas. ON land drilling here is much safer, then ocean drilling. They go out side of our inland limits for drilling, and drill, and one disaster, our lands become waste lands. We could develop millions of acres in the west, and creaT MORE JOBS, MORE INDUSTRY, AND WITH CAREFUL STATE CONTROLLED REGUALATIONS, WE COULD PROTECT OUR ENVIROMENT WITH LITTLE OF THE COSTS WE HAVE NOW.
          There is enough oil shale in the midwest, North, and west for 200 or more years here in America. The federal regulations made receintly is shutting down more independance on using our own resources.

      • eddie47d

        You are the one being dishonest Song. Every state has businesses on the border of another state so if one state chooses to pollute the other state is helpless to do anything about it. That is why it is a national issue and can’t just be handled locally. Polluted rivers run through many states and knows no borders. Why should one state be at the mercy of the polluting state. Corporations can’t always be trusted to clean up after themselves and dump toxins all the time. That effects more than one states drinking water so yes we do need the EPA to monitor the misdeeds of those businesses who don’t care about their surroundings. …and yes acid rain was real and the EPA stepped in and did get those polluters to put scrubbers on their stacks to avoid further damages to the trees in the Northeast.

        • Helen M Nanney

          Eddie, my husband and I used to be in land development, from water use to raw land clearing here in Idaho. The Missouri River watershed, to the Mississippi river conection, to the three rivers Montana conection, there is seven nuclear electricity plants. All of them flooded, and one I know of, was acording to the INEA, emiting a .4 emisions into the air, afecting the land, water, and air in all that huge area.
          The report says they were asked by Obama not to let that information out. I tried to get the information directly from the INEA to the news papers, but they are controled. I tried to call the food regulators, in that area with the documented report, to check emision levels, but to no avail.

          People are as exposed in that whole massive watershed, clear to the ocean, as the earthquake in Japan, and they do not know it. I have been since June 20 th trying to get the word out. Washington has a tight grip on our country. The INEA says it will be the worst disaster in America’s history. Still no warning to all of the people. I watched the massive release of water after it was purposely filled to capicity and over the top, befor they opened the gates on the Gaven point dam. There is five to seven dams on that massive watershed. Hydro plants from those dams would take care of the whole midwest, north, and south, with all of that flow. Clean power, so why did they build nuclear plants. The hydro plants are much cheeper to build also. The water goes through the turbines, and the water presure creates the electricity, and the clean water goes on down stream. Same principle as the wind turbines. Answer WHY?
          Millions of American’s could die now and in the future from that exposure. THat is their plan.

          And apparently eddie you don’t give a d*amn about the constitution or state rights and obviously think you have all the answers. I suppose you also support reintroducing wolves in Yellowstone, although I am sure you don’t live anywhere close to Yellowstone, and the imbeciles in Washington certainly don’t have to deal with the mess they have created here. State rights Eddie…they are very important. It is also obvious that you have some deep rooted hatred of anyone that has more than you and that the only entity you trust is the government. How sad for you!

          • eddie47d

            Apparently you live in Wyoming and yes I do look at wolves as a valuable creature in the balance of nature. Maybe the problem is too many ranchers encroaching on Their territory.It works both ways and yes Yellowstone is my park too since I am a citizen of the USA. The same with any National Park. It comes down to protecting what God gave us and to use it wisely. Developers,ranchers,miners,etc don’t always take care of the environment around them and it is unfortunate that government has to always keep an eye on them. If businesses could be trusted to self monitor themselves that would benefit everyone,(some do). Some don’t!

          • Song

            to Eddie: Apparently I don’t moron. FYI: Yellowstone encompasses more than Wyoming oh “wise one”. What is apparent Eddie is that you think you know a lot more than you really do without the life experience to back up your “feel good” rhetoric and vapid claims and probably live in the same house you have had for the last 40 years in some place in industrial suburbia that never encounters wildlife in their backyard or knows a d*mn thing about conservation, the “natural balance” (lmao) of things or experienced first hand what wolves overrunning their territory means to the people who have to live with them. While you sit in your comfortable chair, pretending to be busy while you babysit all the while lecturing and censoring people online and calling them “liars”; what is obvious is that you never leave your little bubble of the world and probably worked as some uneducated schmuck on an assembly line beholden to your union buddy’s to wipe your face and clean your a** because you never bothered to improve yourself or make wise decisions where you could really understand what it means to be “self made”. Now you eagerly eat at the trough of the MSM and demonize those evil rich corporations whom you are probably drawing a pension from after working for 40 years acting as if you accomplished something in your lifetime while you hurl insults at people that don’t agree with you and foment hatred for those people that have more than you do.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy 131

    Every regulation enacted by the federal government, by law or in Obama’s case by decree, costs the American people money and deprives them of another freedom or choice. Obama and these government officials who try to convince us that these regulations are for our own good remind me of three mots my religious grandmother use to inform me and my sibblings of when we were very young: 1.)The Devil doesn’t tempt you with something you dislike. 2.)The Devil will tell you a thousand truths to get you to believe just one lie. 3.)The Devil is in the details. After observing what Obama has done to the USA and it’s Christian heritage as it’s President, he just might be that Devil. The only good regulation is an appealed and discarded regulation.

  • Larry Pierson

    Definition of insanity: Contiuing to do the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome!!! Unfortunatly, even if we raised the income taxes 50$ to 75%; we would no beable to get out of Debt; because the polticians will contine spending until we are bankrupt. Our regulations keep businesses off shore because of extensive regulations. The Federal Reserve will surely fail soon; because our dollar continues to be weakened because we are printing money faster, and faster because we are trying to hind our debt in a pile of worthless green paper.

    The politicians don’t care about this country or the people! They no longer listen to the people or pay any attention to the real concerns that plague this country and the future!!! There is no future!!!!!!

      Actually, I find that they do listen to the people, which is the problem. The vast majority of US citizens are ignorant when it comes to politics, economics, even basic logic or science. When most people vote, its based on all of the commercials they’ve seen and a gut reaction. They don’t bother to research their past, their recorded votes or beliefs, their life in general. That’s the problem. An ignorant public that’s kept in the dark by 3 news agencies. That’s its only a two party system.

      • LES

        That is exactly why Obama got elected.

  • http://charter howe

    I think the first thing that Speaker Boehnor and the House leaders should do is to examine this Obama jobs package very closely to determine where the land mines exist in the proposal which everyone knows is a joke. The POTUS still clings to this insane ideology that you can spend yourself to prosperity. Since the country is broke, why would you want to spend billions to create jobs when Obama could not do it with almost a trillion dollars in 2009 and 2010. Obama is getting pressure from his union buddies to create an INFRASTRUCTURE bank that will be controlled by the Whitehouse for the benefit of union controlled contractors and others who have or will support the democratic ticket in 2012. This bank would be another CZAR or whitehouse operative that would be loaded onto the backs of the taxpayers just like the Dept of Energy that has grown to 17,000 govt employees who do absolutely nothing the states can’t do and may already be doing redundent tasks. Obama hopes to make his case to the American people with another campaign speech instead of sitting down and discussing the plan with the Republican leaders in advance, then when he unveils his smorgasbord of fantasies he will use any refusal to comply with his mandates as a weapon to beat the opposition over the head and claim that the republicans are the obstructionists. Does anyone think there will be a different result. I suggest that our country is worth saving and WE THE PEOPLE need to show up on 2 Nov 2012 and vote Obama and his cronies out of office while we still have the chance. When the Hispanics and Blacks ever figure out that the Democrats are not the party of the poor, but the party of enablers and foodstamps, they will abandon these socialist communist who have heavily infiltrated our Congress and Whitehouse. My argument is simple, go with the big democratic spenders and we all go into the tank or we get rid of these slick lawyers and rebuild our country so that social programs can once again be used to help poor folks lift hemselves.

      Did you examine G Bush’s wish list and care about the land mines he threw at us? Did you try and save this nation from his nonsense? I think not! So take a closer look at all the problems that got us into these financial messes.”Slaying” Obama won’t cure the headache for the Republicans will only pick up where they left off.Except for Ron Paul the current crop of candidates don’t offer a spit of difference in offering financial solutions.

      • Allan

        You’re right. Getting rid of Obama is only the first step. Then about 85% of the Congress.

    • Helen M Nanney

      Just get a list of the ones that vote Obama way, and replace them.
      REp. or Demo;s. Some are great but do not have enough clout to get their ideas in. We voted in Labrador here last election, and he is doing a great job. I for one mean to let Idahoens know who here voted for whaT. NOW THEY ARE AWAKE.

  • Bob

    Reality check, guys. Much of what the current administration has proposed or implemented was standard Republican fare just two years ago. There is a lot of partisan politics going on, and people have so quickly forgotten that what is going on today – and being ridiculed as something being “done to us” by President Obama – is no different than what previous republican administrations did. When people talk about their concern that our once-great-country is at risk of losing its place in the world, many don’t take a moment to consider actual facts. Unfortunately, this partisan bickering, and this refusal to look at facts is much more of a risk to this country than anything a president – whether conservative or liberal – can do.

    • Allan

      I guess two wrongs don’t make a right.

    • Helen M Nanney

      Obama has already spent more then the last ten Presidents together. Do not defend him, with all those excuses. He was trained and placed to take America down, Obama has us engaged in six wars right now, and wants to send our military to Rawanda. It is his buddies causing the killings of the population, and the plurging the land of the helpless, sick, Christians, weak, old, etc. Just what he plans here.
      I do not believe Bush would be able to be that crule, even if he made mistakes, he never went to such lenghts to make Americans suffer. The man behind Obama with the most clout is george Soro’s. In an 60 minute interview, he was proud of his acomplishments in WW11 helping in the elimination of five million people, and the confiscating of their property. Asked if he had ANY REGRETS. HE SAID NO. SHE ASKED HOW THAT MADE HIM FEEL. HE SAID POWERFUL, MORE POWERFUL.

  • Bob

    Here’s my proposal to fix the economy and the deficit. We put every seat in congress (and the presidency) up for election at the same time. Those elected to office will get only one term. They will serve only 12 months. And together, they must come up with a plan to fix the economy, and get the deficit back to where it was in 1999 (a surplus). If they succeed, they will each receive a pension of $1 million per year for the rest of their lives. If they fail, they go straight to prison for the rest of their lives. Done!

    To Everyone:
    We need to have an EPA type organization to protect our environment.
    Granted, it should be privatized but is truly needed. First of all,
    the EPA was created under the late President Nixon , a Repub.,
    in the early 1970′s. The reason he did this was because after attending a Yankee/Indian baseball game in Cleveland, the Cuyahoga river caught on fire. This was because it was so polluted. This fire
    lasted two days. After seeing this, Nixon had to promote legislation
    to clean up the environment. As a result, the Cuyahoga river is clean
    plus the water supply is safe to drink in Cleveland now. True,
    that’s the only thing good about Cleveland but it was needed.
    Thus, we have to have regulation commissions or our society will be at the hands of the greedy corporate crooks of Wall Street. Thanks!!
    P.S. A tidbit about Rick Perry. Read memo today on politics, Rick Perry might possibly be gay, thus he’s coming down on gay people to cover up his own insecurities. Thanks!!

    • Helen M Nanney

      The regulations need to come from each state. The closer the regulations are to the people, the more clout the people have. We need to reduce our government by at least sisty percent. We should have equil number of persons in congress, like two from each state for house and congress. Less cost, less bickering, less able for a few STTES TO ELECT THE CANIDATES. AS IT IS NOW CORRUPT PEOPLE CAN CORRUPT FIVE MAJOR STATES ELECTIONS, AND WIN THE ELECTIONS. Also
      only citizens can vote. Also citizens by Obama’s signiture should have their citizenship taken away. I would have a bill that demanded all of that CAIR, MuSLEM BROTHERHOOD, HAMUS, Al Quada, all have twenty four hours to leave America. Also all NWO people have twenty four hours to leave America. Also all Judges, Supreme court people, congress people, that took bribes, have twenty four hours to leave America, Strip them of citzenship, and have a warrent out for them should they return. WE need to clean house. Of course that will not happen as Obama will not wait for another election before he calls for Marshael law, and a compleat blackout, in the name of safety. That is why we have to do everything peacefully, until they put our backs against the wall, and endanger our families, than a diferent story. With all of their huge weapons we have not much of a CHANCE, BUT i WOULD RATHER GO DOWN FIGHTING. but: i DO BELIEVE jESUS WILL RAPTURE THE CHURCH.

    So Obama’s proposed regulations “could” cost country billions?!? …

    Why the tentative agnosticism over the existence of the cause and effect relationship?

    Here’s a news bulletin: The Obamessiah’s regulatory assault HAS cost the country billions! … and those coming down the pike WILL most certainly cost us billions more!

  • Thomas Gossard

    I notice everyone is upset by the proposed EPA regs but Iwould like to draw atention to the proposed changes the Dep of Transportation is making. These changes are not needed and will cost the transportation industry mostlt trucking millions in implementing and will cause the price of everything to go up. Now is not the time to make changes with this vast ramifications into all our lives. Most pepoledon,t think about it but everything you own or buy was shipped at some time by truck and if you rase the cost to the industry it will raise the price of everything. They want to make the changes in he name of saftey but The industry is safeer now than ever in history. An accident involving comercial trucks are a terable thing but what most peaple don’t relize is that most of the time that a commercial truck is involved in an accident when they are at fault th driver has already broken the current laws but the Dep of Trans’s answee is to ristrict them even further. the answee is not more restricted laws but better enforcement of the ons already on the books.

    • Song

      Exactly Thomas. The same could be said for just about any industry. The laws and rules and regs are numerous but instead of enforcing them they just pile on more. And I do believe I heard this morning that one of Obama’s “plans” is to create a “jobs” department. Good lord.

  • rdbooth

    Well now, I just read this article and The Washington Times version and the AP version. What bothers me isn’t that there were more regs. proposed, that is no surprise to anyone, hell that is a daily expectation. What gets my attention is the fact that in nary a one of these versions, all nearly identical articles, do they mention what the nature of those regulations are. All they say is that these few effect this one and those few effect that one. How the hell does anyone come up with possible cost to either taxpayers or industry without the facts, ie; the nature of said regulations? I mean If I say that I need something to repair my house, and I don’t know the nature of the damage or what I may need to effect the repair, How can I just pick some number out of plain air and assign it as cost? No there is something about this whole thing. Obamalama says something then backs out, Suddenly the identical article appears everywhere, it will cost billions here and there, blah, blah, blah, all in what a time span of 24 hours or less including everyone and their brothers already know about it? BS! Someone is peeing on our legs and telling us that it’s raining.

All the solutions are very simple even those with half a brain know this. The meek shall inherit the earth not the educated elite with NO common sense whatsoever.

    I thought this was suppose to be about Obama’s Proposed Regulations, which would cost our Country Billions of Dollars, NOT everything else from Bachmann, Perry and Impeachment, EPA, etc…… It should be that you stick to the Subject at hand, NOT everything else that doesn’t concern it….. If you have something to say about whatever, then do it where it belongs when that Subject comes-up…..
    I like many of you would like to see things better and Obama gone from Office, but let’s face it, we need to speak about what the subject is all about….. Thanks !!!!

      Gunsmoke it is called a discussion board because people discuss things, ideas, points of view, beliefs etc., which don’t always follow a concrete path of thought. One comment might lead to another comment which people would like to discuss. Kind of like your comment. At the moment I am responding to your comment, not the topic of the article because I am responding to you. That, in part, makes up any discussion. Why concern yourself with the contrary?

  • Downs1

    This President is a Marxist idealog who believes that the people are absolutely incapable of taking care of themselves. Therefore, government must provide that care in the form of regulation and oversight. That means we must pay more taxes to pay for our regulation and oversight by people who can do no better than we ourselves. In fact, we can do better because we personally care about our own families, jobs, income, health, etc. Thus far, Obama has done nothing to help and everything to hinder this nation and its economy. We are being regulated to death (literally). Congress needs to get off its fat rump and impeach this fool and investigate those who surround him.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Humane people can, for the most part, take care of themselves and others. Corporations, on the other hand, have one priority – make money. Unless regulated, that often takes the form of companies doing things on the cheap that usually harm people and/or the environment.

      As I mentioned above, the news is that President Obama is backing off the EPA air quality regulations recently recommended. While he again caves to the interests of the wealthy right he is setting many people (often poor folk who suffer from living close to polluting industries) for respiratory illness.

      • Allan

        Obama is not caving in to the right.

        He is simply tossing out some temporary “centrism” to reverse his declining approval rate. I am certain he will begin to tout himself as government reformer and financial saviour in the months ahead. Obama is anything you want him to be that will help him with currently disenchanted voter segments. Pravda couldn’t be prouder.

        Stimulas money trail: From the British Times paper
        • Subject: Chicago Bank must read
        From the CBOT
        Subject: Chicago’s Shore Bank
        This story has been put together from various articles and TV shows by the British Times paper. It shows what Obama and his friends are really all about. It’s not hope and change, it is money.
        A small bank in Chicago called ShoreBank almost went bankrupt during the recession. The bank made a profit on its foreign micro-loans (see below) but had lost money in sub-prime mortgages in the US . It was facing likely closure by federal regulators. However, because the bank’s executives were well connected with members of the Obama Administration, a private rescue bailout was arranged. The bank’s employees had donated money to Obama’s Senate campaign. In other words, ShoreBank was too politically connected to be allowed to go under.
        ShoreBank survived and invested in many “green” businesses such as solar panel manufacturing. In fact, the bank was mentioned in one of Obama’s speeches during his election campaign because it subjected new business borrowers to eco-litmus tests.
        Prior to becoming President, Obama sat on the board of the JOYCE FOUNDATION, a liberal charity. This foundation was originally established by Joyce Kean’s family which had accumulated millions of dollars in the lumber industry. It mostly gave funds to hospitals but after her death in 1972, the foundation was taken over by radical environmentalists and social justice extremists.
        This JOYCE FOUNDATION, which is rumored to have assets of 8 billion dollars, has now set up and funded, with a few partners, something called the CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE, known as CXX. It will be the exchange (like the Chicago Grain Futures Market for agriculture) where Environmental Carbon Credits are traded.
        (THIS IS WHY THE CAP AND TRADE law IS SO IMPORTANT TO OBAMA AND FRIENDS On the bac ks of American tax payers, truckers, oil industry, farming, gas supplies will shoot up, the new tax charges, will drive up food, and bring America to her knees. Meanwhile they will make billions from the tax emission charges. Also this is why our boys were tarketed to stop Quidafi, Egypt, Yemen etc. They were all of America’s friends and kept our (and the EU countries) gas pumps going. The Moslems run the UN now, and they have a lot to gain, as the Moslem brotherhood, wants us down and they are behind the riots in those countries. They already have taken control of Egypt. They are keeping it all under cover until it is finished. Helen Nanney
        Under Obama’s new bill, businesses in the future will be assessed a tax on how much CO2 they produce (their Carbon Footprint) or in other words how much they add to global warming. If a company produces less CO2 than their allotted measured limit, they earn a Carbon Credit. This Carbon Credit can be traded on the CXX exchange. Another company, which has gone over their CO2 limit, can buy the Credit and “reduce” their footprint and tax liability. It will be like trading shares on Wall Street.
        Well, it was the same JOYCE FOUNDATION, along with some other private partners and Wall Street firms that funded the bailout of ShoreBank. The foundation is now one of the major shareholders. The bank has now been designated to be the “banking arm” of the CHICAGO CLIMATEEXCHANGE

        (CXX). In addition, Goldman Sachs has been contracted to run the investment trading floor of the exchange. They were also bailed out with stimulius money.
        So far so good; now the INTERESTING parts.
        One ShoreBank co-founder, named Jan Piercy, was a Wellesley College roommate of Hillary Clinton. Hillary and Bill Clinton have long supported the bank and are small investors.
        Another co-founder of ShoreBank, named Mary Houghton, was a friend of Obama’s late mother. Obama’s mother worked on foreign MICRO-LOANS for the Ford Foundation. She worked for the foundation with a guy called Geithner. Yes, you guessed it. This man was the father of Tim Geithner, our present Treasury Secretary, who failed to pay all his taxes for two years.
        Another founder of ShoreBank was Ronald Grzywinski, a cohort and close friend of Jimmy Carter.
        The former ShoreBank Vice Chairman was a man called Bob Nash. He was the deputy campaign manager of Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. He also sat on the board of the Chicago Law School with Obama and Bill Ayers, the former terrorist. Nash was also a member of Obama’s White House transition team.
        (To jog your memories, Bill Ayers is a Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago . He founded the Weather Underground, a radical revolutionary group that bombed buildings in the 60s and 70s. He had no remorse for those who were killed, escaped jail on a technicality, and is still an admitted Marxist).
        When Obama sat on the board of the JOYCE FOUNDATION, he “funneled” thousands of charity dollars to a guy named John Ayers, who runs a dubious education fund. Yes, you guessed it. The brother of Bill Ayers, the terrorist.
        Howard Stanback is a board member of ShoreBank. He is a former board chairman of the Woods Foundation. Obama and Bill Ayers, the terrorist, also sat on the board of the Woods Foundation. Stanback was formerly employed by New Kenwood Inc. a real estate development company co-owned by Tony Rezko.
        (You will remember that Tony Rezko was the guy who gave Obama an amazing sweet deal on his new house. Years prior to this, the law firm of Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland had represented Rezko’s company and helped him get more than 43 million dollars in government funding. Guess who worked as a lawyer at the firm at the time. Yes, Barack Obama).
        Adele Simmons, the Director of ShoreBank, is a close friend of Valerie Jarrett, a White House senior advisor to Obama. Simmons and Jarrett also sit on the board of a dubious Chicago Civic Organization.
        Van Jones sits on the board of ShoreBank and is one the marketing directors for “green” projects. He also holds a senior advisor position for black studies at Princeton University .You will remember that Mr. Van Jones was appointed by Obama in 2009 to be a Special Advisor for Green Jobs at the White House. He was forced to resign over past political activities, including the fact that he is a Marxist.
        Al Gore was one of the smaller partners to originally help fund the CHICAGO CLIMATE EXCHANGE. He also founded a company called Generation Investment Management (GIM) and registered it in London , England . GIM has close links to the UK-based Climate Exchange PLC, a holding company listed on the London Stock Exchange. This company trades Carbon Credits in Europe (just like CXX will do here) and its floor is run by Goldman Sachs.
        Along with Gore, the other co-founder of GIM is Hank Paulson, the former US Treasury Secretary and former CEO of Goldman Sachs. His wife, Wendy, graduated from and is presently a Trustee of Wellesley College. Yes, the same college that Hillary Clinton and Jan Piercy, a co-founder of ShoreBank attended. (They are all friends).
        (All of them, Bill Ayers, VP Reed, Clintons, Gore, Obama etc. will make trillions on this scam . THIS SHOULD BE TREASON) Helen M nanney
        Interesting? And now the closing…
        Because many studies have been exposed as scientific nonsense, people are slowly realizing that man-made global warming is nothing more than a money-generating hoax. As a result, Obama is working feverishly to win the race. He aims to push a Cap-and- Trade Carbon Tax Bill through Congress and into law.
        Financial experts think this will be the largest “scam” or “legal heist” in world history. Obama’s cronies make the Mafia look like rank amateurs. They will make Bernie Madoff’s fraud look like penni-anti stuff.
        Obama knows he must get this passed before he loses his majority in Congress in the November elections. Apart from Climate Change he will “sell” this bill to the public as generating tax revenue to reduce our debt. But, it will also make it impossible for US companies to compete in world markets and drastically increase unemployment. In addition, energy prices (home utility rates) will sky rocket.
        But, here’s the KICKER (THE MONEY TRAIL).
        If the bill passes, it is estimated that over 10 TRILLION dollars each year will be traded on the CXX exchange. At a commission rate of only 4 percent, the exchange would earn close to 400 billion dollars to spit between its owners, all Obama cronies. At a 2 percent rate, Goldman Sachs would also rake in 200 billion dollars each year.
        But don’t forget ShoreBank. With 10 trillion dollars flowing though its accounts, the bank will earn close to 40 billion dollars in interest each year for its owners (more Obama cronies), without even breaking a sweat.
        It is estimated Al Gore alone will probably rake in 15 billion dollars just in the first year. Of course, Obama’s “commissions” will be held in trust for him at the JOYCE FOUNDATION. They are estimated to be over 8 billion dollars by the time he leaves office in 2013, if the bill passes this year. Of course, these commissions will continue to be paid for the rest of his life.

    • Bob

      Marxist? Really? Marxist?

    • Clarice Bornschein

      I agree with you on impeachment. I do not understand why the formality has not been started, along with any politician backing Obama. He certainly has given us the right to start the proceedings. Obama has one agenda and that is to break the economic condition of the United States. No new regulations should be implemented and no more executive orders should be signed by Obama. He just proceeds as he wants and doesn’t give a hoot about what the American people feel or think. He has hired so many groups into his office to insure his vote in 2012. Have you read about the 31 Czar’s he hired? Have you read about the Homosexuals he hired? Have you read about the Executive Orders he has signed, without vote? Read abaout them American People, don’t listen to just the news, because you won’t get it all. It is already being squashed. Obama hasn’t an ounce of respect for the American People. I wonder when the American People will wake up an smell the roses. Probably when it is too late.!!

  • Dee

    Just wonder if obama knows what he is doing or is he doing it on purpose to ruin this country. He is NOT great and he is not a HERO.

  • guidepost

    Wake-up blockheads. Obama knows exactly what he is doing and is very good at what he does. HE WAS ELECTED TO DESTROY THE ECONOMY OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY. He succeeded!! Most of you blockheads have no idea the damage this guy has caused with his socialist policies. As James De Havilland, author of Power by Deception warns, soon we will all be dragging an anchor through quicksand.

  • BillF

    Nothing that comes from our criminal marxist/socialist government should be implemented.
    Everything that the cockroach aka bin obama will have to be undone. The cockroach should
    be in prison now. All socialists should be purged from the American Government and imprisoned
    for life.

  • Hornet

    Keep in mind that the goal of our marxist government if to destroy the capitalist system. The use of debilitating regulations is a major part of bringing the economy to heel under the Obama boot.

      No doubt.
