"I am a conservative.
This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock
powered by electricity generated by the public power
by the U.S. Department of Energy.
I then took a shower in the clean water provided
by a municipal water utility....
that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC-regulated
channels to see
what the National Weather Service of the National
Atmospheric Administration determined the weather
was going to be like,
using satellites designed, built, and launched by
Aeronautics and Space Administration.
I watched this while
eating my breakfast of U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected
and taking the drugs which have been determined as
safe by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration.
At the appropriate time, as
regulated by the U.S. Congress and kept accurate by
Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S.
Naval Observatory, I
get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-approved
automobile and set out to work on the roads build
by the local, state,
and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly
purchase additional fuel of a quality level
determined by the Environmental Protection Agency,
using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank.
the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to
be sent out via the
U.S. Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public
spending another day not being maimed or killed at
work thanks to the
workplace regulations imposed by the Department of
Labor and the
Occupational Safety and Health administration, enjoying
meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA,
I drive my NHTSA
car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which
has not burned down
in my absence because of the state and local building
codes and Fire
Marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered
of all its
valuables thanks to the local police department.
then I log on to the internet -- which was developed
by the Defense
Advanced Research Projects Administration -- and post
Freerepublic.com and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM
in medicine is
BAD because the government can't do anything right."
November 2008 - Barack Hussein Obama was elected
the 44th president of the United States, as the country
chose him as its first black chief executive.
His acceptance speech alone helped erase 8 yrs of
bitterness both at home and abroad as his upbeat and
hopeful rhetoric was broadcast all over the world.

Bush Spying , Breaking the Law ?
you may be able to determine from my articles , that
I lean a bit left. Yes I have declared myself a liberal
, especially over these last few years. I do have
some conservative views (smaller government, individual
responsibility first , strong economic growth policies,some
traditional tendencies (not everything requires immediate
overhaul or change) but for the most part I disagree
with everything Conservative Republicans believe and
administer as policy now. I don`t agree with the religious
conservatives views at all. I don`t want government
intrusion into personal lives and choices therefore(
I`m pro-choice ,believe in equal rights for all, believe
in separation of church and state, not so gung-ho
about public funding of Bush`s faith based initiatives,
nor his refusal of research based on his religious
believe our democracy has slowly become an aristocracy
or oligarchy. The common citizen is generally the
target or unfortunate conseqential recipient of all
the endeavors of the elite government. I disagree
with Everything Bush is doing as far as Taxes , S.S
, Medicare , his horrendous treatment of the environment
, his limiting of our civil rights , I hate his idealism
of Spreading Freedom while limiting our own , I hate
his expenditures of public funds to promote his plans
(30 mil + to sell privatizaton) , I disagree with
his appontments to the bench, His parties political
maneuverings such as submitting NON-Negotiable bills
to vote on , Friday night bills snuck in , redistricting
to save seats , legal fights against voter rolls that
affect rep. votes, I hate the Right`s propaganda machine
that spews lies , propagates simplified myths counteracting
a real discussion , bullying and badgering of any
counter view , calling into question anyones patriotism
when disagreeing with our foreign policy , which I
TOTALLY disagree with, telling liberals that they
hate america because they disagree with the President`s
party. I resent the salesmanship packages and fear
mongering that the party tries to decieve us with.
Clear skies Program , S.S is falling down , terrorism
is coming , Patriot Act - protecting americans, etc;
I can`t even remember all the simplified Good-Will
sounding policies that he put forth that are truly
the exact opposite of their titles or what was said
about them when sold to us.
hate the fact that big business can buy votes in all
stages of our government. I hate the bogus Campaign
Reform Rhetoric that never comes to fruition. I hate
the give away of public assets to the best party donors.
I hate the increasing gap between the rich and the
poor , and the disintegrating middle class , due to
the policies of the government.
hate Karl Rove! He is evil. I hate dubya`s hypocracy.
Protestors get pushed into protest zones , arrested
if they have signs anti-bush , while the President
states in a speech to the bourgeoise , I love Free
Speech. Bullshit... The freedom of Information Act
, Under ATTACK - Freedom of the press - Bullied and
Stymied - Freedom of speech - equally - Privacy --
Gone - freedoms of choice , stripped . I realize I`m
speaking so general right now it sounds like I may
be exaggerating the problem. It is possible I am ,
but I have specific gripes that I can articulate about
every item I have stated. I think I actually will.
I`ll start with the article Below \/
could go on but I have just frustrated myself.
Looting of America - By Kevin Beary
We have been robbed, not once but many times. Multiple
attacks have occurred in the last four years. Trillions
of dollars have been siphoned out of public funds
into the bottomless wells of the elite. Our collective
wallets have been drained without our notice.
Who are the elite ? How did they pull this off? The
elite are the Charles Schwabs`, Jack Welchs` and Kenneth
Lays of the world. These top 2% of American society
are also President Bush`s "Base". These
are the people that Bush panhandles in order to come
to power via their campaign contributions and support.
It is their wants that govern US Policy at our expense.
Let me start at the beginning
I believed in George. I felt he was a good, honest
sincere man. I believed he was strong of faith and
would be a good head of our great nation. I believed
that this Texan rancher had the good of Americans
at heart. Although many attribute him with the famous
words of Forest Gump , I believed he would make a
I have since undergone a paradigm shift of political
thought. I came to learn about the hidden agenda not
through traditional means; CNN , Fox news (they are
in on it) I found much rarer resources of independent
papers , books , associations and websites. It is
the perusal of these that gave me a much more rounded
picture and shed light on this burglary. Let me present
some facts for you.
As soon as Bush entered office he robbed the bank.
He gave 1.3 trillion dollars of public funds in a
whopper of a tax-cut. The top 2% of Americans receive
the lions share of the payoff. He did not stop there
, no siree bob
He swooped down again and cut
the dividend tax. 89% of this tax cut will go to the
upper 10% of society. Call the police , I've been
2001 tax cut benefits :
George Bush - Pres of the United States - $16,511
Dick Cheney - V.Pres. of the United States-$104,823
Kevin Beary - V.Pres Safeside Chimney - $328
The tax cut caper was just the beginning of the blatant
thefts of our public treasury. There are more insidious
crimes to learn about.
Bush, during the controversial war on Iraq , managed
to increase military spending which will translate
to a $4 Trillion budget over the next decade. How
much is a trillion ? One trillion seconds ago , Neanderthal
men stalked the earth.
Where does all this money go? Does our military personnel
receive it? NO.
GI`s in Afghanistan in 2002, attempting to root out
Al Qaeda forces hiding in caves had to buy their own
I can create a long laundry list of essential equipment
denied the young men and women (not Bush`s base) who
are dying for our country. Instead I will tell you
where the money went.
Corporate defense contractors and their CEO's. These
organizations that donated heaps of cash to campaign
funds received billions of dollars from taxpayer money
in return. Lockheed Martin , a defense contractor
, donated over $10 million dollars in a 10 year span
1992-2003. Do you believe it was out of the kindness
of their heart ? NO ! It was for billion dollar contracts
, baby. (the same company that had to settle with
the government for knowingly overcharging for air
Who else among George Bush`s "Base" have
helped themselves to our money ? Business Corporations
and their executives by avoiding income tax with shady
off shore tax havens and back room deals. Upstanding
companies like Global Crossing and Enron are looting
the bank by not paying into it. Besides costing 5000
employees their jobs , depleting their pensions ,
burning its investors, and executive thefts of $100
million (Ken lays payout prior to Enron`s crash);
Enron only paid taxes 4 out of 5 years.
CSX Corp, ran by our very own treasury secretary ,
John Snow, paid ZERO federal income taxes in three
of four years , despite profits of nearly a billion
dollars. In fact , CSX pulled $164 million right out
of our wallets in tax rebates.
My small company paid substantially more taxes than
ZERO on a lot less income. I also do not recall opening
up an envelope with a $164 million tax rebate check.
This giveaway to the rich and elite corporate world
does not stop here. Part of the recent tax cuts gives
over $40 billion in tax incentives to Bush`s corporate
It is apparent you and I are not a member of Bush`s
'Base' ball team. It is equally clear that the systematic
raping of our public funds will not stop under this
administration. This is not democracy. You and I have
had no say in these matters. I future articles I will
provide information, resources , and plans of action
on how to take back America from these thieves. For
now I leave you a quote from Cicero:
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the
ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in
accents familiar to his victims."
