About Me

Missouri, United States
I consider myself the "black sheep" of the family. I moved away from home when I was 19 and a year ago I decided it was time I moved back home....so glad to be among family and friends. I grew up playing the piano but haven't played in years. I have always thought outside the box, wanting to move to Boquete Panama, I am a tea party participant. I am a reiki master and I have 2 good guard dogs....a dachshund and Jack Russell terrorist. I go to alternative news websites daily for news (don't trust MSM to tell the truth). Operation mockingbird is a CIA operation that began in the '40's to control the media both foreign and domestic. This is why I go to alternative news websites. For an excellent article to read on the subject I suggest http://www.prisonplanet.com/analysis_louise_01_03_03_mockingbird.html

15 Economic Statistics That Just Keep Getting Worse

This article gives you documentation, 15 ways, as to why we are in deep trouble.
For instance:
"1 - The number of Americans who are receiving food stamps rose to a new all-time record of 40.8 million in May. The number of Americans receiving food stamps has set a new all-time record for 18 months in a row. But there is every indication that things are going to get even worse. The U.S. Department of Agriculture projects that the number of Americans on food stamps will increase to 43 million in 2011.
2 - The U.S. economy lost 131,000 more jobs during the month of July. But the truth is that the U.S. economy has been bleeding jobs for a long time. According to one analysis, the United States has lost 10.5 million jobs since 2007. Meanwhile, immigrants (both legal and illegal) continue to pour into this nation in unprecedented numbers.
3 - Americans who are out of work are finding it incredibly difficult to get back into the workforce. In the United States today, the average time needed to find a job has risen to an all-time record of 35.2 weeks."
We need to get serious about stopping this jump into fiscal collapse. The first step, like an addict, is to admit we have a problem. Then we must repeal the job and revenues killers. That means we need a total regime change in Washington and Sacramento.
I just received an email from a friend who read the first posting. His remarks were "this is why we need to buy gold, guns and beans". We have a government protecting illegal aliens and Black Panther bullies. Socialists and admitted Communists have been made significant part of the Obama Administration. People in charge of our health care believe in rationing and stopping health care to those in need.
In California we have AB 32 and the companion SB 375, to kill jobs and revenues. We do not have a budget and looks like we might not get one till January. Our State Controller "borrowed" $12 billion from TRUST Funds to keep Sacramento open.
Yes, very little good news--if you want to be honest. But once we admit the problem we can solve it. The choice is yours at the ballot box.

Crowd waiting for housing vouchers gets rowdy
By Mike Morris
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A crowd of people hoping to get federal housing assistance became unruly Wednesday morning with reports of fights breaking out in the crowd.
Thousands of people were lined up at the Tri-Cities Plaza shopping center, hoping to apply for a voucher from the East Point Housing Authority that will give them a discount on their rent.
People began lining up at the shopping center two days ago, and by Wednesday morning the crowd had grown to over several thousand people. East Point police, some wearing riot helmets, were patrolling the area. Firefighters and EMTs were attending to people who were overheating in the sun. Police from College Park, Hapeville, Fulton County and MARTA assisted in crowd control.
Felecia McGhee told the AJC she arrived around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday. She said the major problem began when people started breaking into the line and officials started moving the areas where they were handing out applications. She said she saw at least two small children trampled when the crowd rushed the building where the applications were to be handed out.
"It's a real mess out here," she said.
East Point Police Sgt. Cliff Chandler said most of those treated were suffering from heat-related illnesses. He did not have a total number of people treated but knew of at least a half-dozen cases. He said a toddler was treated earlier in the morning for "some type of seizure." He estimated the crowd at 8,000 to 10,000.
Channel 2 Action News reporter Mike Petchenik said fights were breaking out and police had to stop people who were storming the door . . .
