THE STORY OF STUFFYOU MUST KNOW ABOUT THIS: This is the video that is being shown in thousands of classrooms to school students all over the country.  Watch it.  As you do ask yourself if what is being said is true.  Here's a hint.  The video says that over 50% of our budget goes to defense spending (the truth:  http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/7/7a/U.S._Federal_Spending_-_FY_2007.png/800px-U.S._Federal_Spending_-_FY_2007.png).  The video next says, "it is the government's job to watch out for us... to take care of us."  BULLS---!  It also says that 80% of the planet's original forests are gone.... true.... BUT, it fails to mentioning anything about the replanting of forests.  In the US today we have more forested acreage than we had when the Pilgrims landed in Massachusetts.  This video is 110% pure leftist progressive bullshit designed to scare the hell of of young kids and turn them into unthinking, unknowing, liberals.  Everything it says is either a lie, or an outright misstatement by omission or partial truth:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLBE5QAYXp8

AND AS IF THAT WERE NOT ENOUGH.... the same group (George Soros and the Tides Foundation) is now trying to get the same message into our churches and synagogues:  http://www.storyofstuff.com/faith.php

Senate Democrats hold a hearing covering a taxpayer bailout of union pensions and a plan to seize private 401(k) plans to more "fairly" distribute taxpayer-funded pensions to everyone:  http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=39336&s=rcmp

Nancy Pelosi addresses Steelworkers union about "fairness."  Suggests taxpayers should bailout badly managed union retirement funds (btw - she and her husband are themselves multimillionaires and there are no unions in the businesses they own):  http://www.breitbart.tv/pelosi-preaches-income-disparity-and-fairness/

Proof the Obama Administration has not even the most fundamental grasp of things economic when it comes to the economy and job creation and loss:  http://www.nytimes.com/gwire/2010/10/08/08greenwire-obama-admin-says-new-offshore-safety-rules-may-19250.html

Uh oh!  Obama Administration distorts the market again.  Here comes 15% ethanol in our fuel.  That could be a major problem.  Ethanol is corrosive.  May be ok in newer cars, but what about your lawn mower or weedeater or older car?  So the real question now becomes when will 10% alcohol be eliminated?: http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/news/newsbyid.asp?idx=214123&cat1=greentech

NEA (National Education Association) has produced a TV ad that is anti Fair Tax.  There is only one thing wrong with it.  It is wrong.... not partially wrong.... 100% wrong:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wln02gzauIQ

With reference to the preceding paragraph would you like to leave an online comment to the NEA?  Sorry!  You can't.  NEA denies access to its web site to anyone not an NEA member.  Looks like NEA doesn't want its members to hear anything that doesn't coincide with their own political agenda:  http://www.neafund.org/

How much do you and every member of your family owe on the national debt?





Seems like the Obama Administration doesn't agree with Lincoln.
Rather, they seem to have adopted the philosophy of:

OF THE GOVERNMENT
BY THE GOVERNMENT
FOR THE GOVERNMENT

RIGHT?




Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
