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

Obama takes a dip to encourage Gulf Coast tourism (in Gulf waters)

Vatic Note: now confess, is this or is this not "crazy making"??? Daily we get mixed messages from the system that its a total disaster, the oil plume is moving up the coast and killing tons of fish, and then we get shrimpers coming back from fishing in the Louisiana gulf off shore and bringing back shrimp that were alive, now how is that possible  with all the horrible stuff we were fed, like no oxygen at the bottom of the gulf, which is where the shrimp live and breath.... and then we see they died from being caught (you can tell my the color of the shrimp) , so what the heck really is going on in the gulf???? WE then also get news that Recovered endangered turtles are being put back into the gulf, huh???   Now, which BS story is it?  Do we buy Fear or Risk.  

Obama takes a dip to encourage Gulf Coast tourism


Latest update: 15/08/2010 , France 24 publication, AP

US President Barack Obama took his daughter Sasha for a swim in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday to help convince Americans that the largely tourism-dependent region was safe for travel after the BP oil spill disaster.

AP - President Barack Obama declared Gulf Coast beaches clean, safe and open for business Saturday as he brought his family to the Florida Panhandle and promised residents that the government wouldn’t forget them once efforts to stop the leak are finished.

On a warm and muggy day, Obama pledged to “keep up our efforts until the environment is cleaned, polluters are held accountable, businesses and communities are made whole, and the people of the Gulf Coast are back on their feet.”

Obama is in the region for a brief weekend trip with first lady Michelle Obama, daughter Sasha (her sister Malia is at summer camp) and the family dog, Bo. Their 27-hour stop in the Sunshine State is as much a family vacation as it is an attempt by the president to convince Americans that this region, so dependent on tourism revenue, is safe for travel _ and that its surf is clean.

To reinforce that message, Obama and Sasha swam Saturday, according to White House spokesman Bill Burton. The highly anticipated dip was away from the media’s view. The Obamas swam in Saint Andrew Bay off of Alligator Point, technically not the Gulf, according to maps.
