Another Republican " No " To Remember this NO-vember

WATCH: President's Weekly Address:
Rips Repubs for Blocking Much
Needed Small Business Loans

President Barack Obama is going after Senate Republicans who have stymied his proposal to create a $30 billion fund to help unfreeze lending for credit-starved small businesses.

His election-year push for additional job measures suffered a fresh setback this past week when the GOP blocked the small-business plan.

The president used his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday to accuse Republicans of "holding America's small businesses hostage to politics." He said the bill has the support of business groups and contains many ideas favored by both parties.

"Understand, a majority of senators support the plan. It's just that the Republican leaders in the Senate won't even allow it to come up for a vote," Obama said. "That isn't right." (HuffPo)


B4B NOTE: I have never seen a group so dedicated to doing all they can to make Americans literally SUFFER. It is absolutely anti-American and should be the catalyst for heavy anti-Republican voter turn-out this " NO-vember ". It's Action Time ! Make sure all of your friends/family are registered to vote for the midterm...and make sure they vote. PUSH the vital importance of the
" NO (to the repubs)-vember " Elections.

Pathetic ! 'Party of No' Votes NO
to Health Care-Aid for 9/11
Rescuers,Heroes !

Watch: Rep. Weiner Goes Ballistic Over Another Republican, Anti-American Vote

For there to be such a clear history of illness and death to 9/11 rescuers-heroes,
amazes me that ANY human being would block much needed health care or aid. The Republican party is an absolutely despicable group of whom NONE deserve to call themselves For The People or of Public Service because they ARE NOT ! 24 more yes votes and this bill would have passed. Instead, nearly 150 Republicans voted NO ! This pathetic fact should be the catalyst for heavy anti-Repub turn-out this
" NO (to the repubs)-vember ".

Shirley Sherrod To Sue
Blogger Andrew Breitbart
Over Doctored Video

CBS News

Ousted Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod said Thursday she will sue a conservative blogger who posted a video edited in a way that made her appear racist.

Sherrod was forced to resign as director of rural development in Georgia after Andrew Breitbart posted the edited video online. In the full video, Sherrod, who is black, spoke to a local NAACP group about racial reconciliation and lessons she learned after initially hesitating to help a white farmer save his home.

Speaking Thursday at the National Association of Black Journalists convention, Sherrod said she would "definitely" sue over the video that took her remarks out of context. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has since offered Sherrod a new job in the department in advocacy and outreach. She has not decided whether to accept.

"I am so far from being able to do that," Sherrod said at the convention. "I have not had a chance to read the offer. [The] offer says 'draft.' I need to ask them what that means."

Obama: Shirley Sherrod Deserved Better

Sherrod said she had not received an apology from Breitbart and no longer wanted one.

"He had to know that he was targeting me," she said.

Breitbart did not immediately respond to calls or e-mails seeking comment. He has said he posted the portion of the speech where she details her reluctance to help the white farmer to prove that racism exists in the NAACP, which had just demanded that the tea party movement renounce any bigoted elements. Some members of the NAACP audience responded approvingly when Sherrod described her reluctance to help the farmer.

The farmer's wife came forward after Sherrod resigned, saying Sherrod had eventually helped them save their farm.

Vilsack and President Barack Obama later called Sherrod to apologize for her hasty ouster. Obama said Thursday that Sherrod "deserves better than what happened last week."

Obama said Thursday morning on ABC's daytime talk show "The View" that the incident shows racial tensions still exist in America.

Obama pinned much of the blame for the incident on a media culture that he said seeks out conflict and doesn't always get the facts right. But he added, "A lot of people overreacted, including people in my administration."

Addressing the National Urban League, he said the full story Sherrod was trying to tell "is exactly the kind of story we need to hear in America."

At the journalists convention, Sherrod was asked what could be done to ensure accurate coverage as conservatives like Breitbart attack the NAACP and other liberal groups.

Sherrod, 62, responded that members of her generation who were in the civil rights movement "tried too much to shield that hurt and pain from younger people. We have to do a better job of helping those individuals who get these positions, in the media, in educational institutions, in the presidency, we have to make sure they understand the history so they can do a better job."

She said Obama is one of those who need a history lesson.

"That's why I invited him to southwest Georgia. I need to take him around and show him some of that history," Sherrod said.

Despite her experience, Sherrod said she believes the country can heal its racial divisions - if people are willing to confront the issue.

"Young African-Americans, young whites, too, we've done such a job of trying to be mainstream that we push things under the rug that we need to talk about. And then we get to situations like this," she said.

"I truly believe that we can come together in this country. But you don't (come together) by not talking to each other. You don't get there by pushing things under the rug."

Sherrod said her faulty firing should not be blamed on all media.

Before the full video was released, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly said Sherrod should be fired, and others called her speech racist. O'Reilly later apologized.

"They had a chance to get the facts out, and they weren't interested," Sherrod said.

She said she declined to give Fox an interview because she believed they were not interested in pursuing the truth. "They would have twisted it," she said.

Crack-Powder Sentencing Disparity

Reduced by Congress

Ryan Grimm/HuffPo

Congress addressed a historic wrong on Wednesday afternoon, replacing it instead with a slightly lesser wrong, when the House voted to reduce the disparity in the sentencing of people caught with crack cocaine versus powder cocaine.

To be charged with a felony, crack users needed to possess only 5 grams of the drug. To be hit with the same charge, powder cocaine users needed to be caught with 500 grams. This 100-to-1 disparity has frequently been cited by drug war opponents as exhibit A to buttress their claim that drug laws are racist.

Pending President Obama's signature, the new law will reduce that disparity to 18-to-1. The threshold for crack cocaine in the new law will be 28 grams; the powder level remains the same.

The moment on the House floor came and went fairly quickly, but the ease with which the bill passed belied a lot of behind-the-scenes activity.

As of Friday, the bill was not on the calendar to be considered this week. But on Saturday at the Netroots Nation conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was asked about the disparity and said that she expected the bill to come up the next week. It was placed on the calendar on Tuesday.

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) controls the floor schedule and has been pushing on the issue for several weeks, working "hand in glove," according to one Senate aide, with Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who sponsored the upper chamber's version of the disparity fix. The Senate aide said that Hoyer was late to a bicameral leadership meeting Tuesday night because he was still making calls to nail down support for the legislation.

A key question was whether Republicans would demand a roll call or allow it to pass by a voice vote. Few vulnerable politicians, in an election year, want to vote on anything that could be cast as being soft on crack cocaine. Hoyer worked directly with House Republicans to assuage some of their concerns in an effort to ward off a demand for a recorded vote, which could jeopardize the legislation. (Read rest of article)

B4B NOTE: Although still imperfect...for those who say that The President hasn't done anything for Black people...good to see a law which specifically targeted the Black community for 20 years finally being addressed in a more equitable direction. Bet the penal system is sad about this one.

ANOTHER VICTORY ! Justice Prevails.

fought against Arizona's unjust 'Legalization of Racial Profiling' Law.
And special thanks to Judge Susan Bolton for knocking it down. Round One...
US !

The ruling halts implementation of parts of the law that require police to determine the immigration status of people they stop and suspect of being in the U.S. illegally. Jurist says the law would undermine federal policies.

A federal judge on Wednesday blocked the most controversial elements of Arizona's new immigration law, thrilling the law's opponents, dismaying its advocates and setting the stage for more legal battles in the future.

"We would have liked to have seen it all upheld, but a temporary injunction is not the end of it," said Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the legislation in April. "I look at this as a little bump in the road."

The governor said she was looking forward to getting started on the appeals process. "Jan Brewer is not a quitter," she said.
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton halted implementation of the parts of the law that require police to determine the immigration status of people they stop and think are in the country illegally. She also forbade the state from charging anyone with failure to possess immigration documents, a crime under the new law.

In her 36-page decision, Bolton wrote that the measure would have hamstrung the federal government's efforts to enforce immigration law.

"The federal government's ability to enforce its policies and achieve its objectives will be undermined by the state's enforcement of statutes that interfere with federal law," she wrote.

The law's supporters, who contended it was needed to stop illegal immigrants from coming to Arizona, vowed a swift appeal.

Brewer, speaking with reporters as she left the University of Arizona technology park, said she believes the law is constitutional. Brewer also said, as she has repeatedly in the past, that the law was an attempt to protect the state. "I wish that the federal government would step up and do their job so we could all be safe and secure in the state of Arizona," she said.

Immigrant-rights groups were ebullient. "It means justice will truly prevail," said Lydia Guzman, president of Somos America, or We Are America. (Read rest of Article)

B4B NOTE: Be Prepared for the manipulative onslaught of fake polls claiming that " most Americans " are FOR the legalization of racial profiling. Sure there were 'polls' back in the day that showed most Americans were Pro-Slavery too !

The Republican/Corporate Plot
to KILL The Middle Class

By Greg Jones
National Director

Since September of 2008 under President George W. Bush, unemployment has skyrocketed, banks have tightened credit , millions of homes have been foreclosed upon, all while the Republicans incredibly work in lockstep to do all they can to exacerbate the problem. For weeks they voted against much needed life-sustaining unemployment extension for millions of American families forcing many to literally starve. They've voted against desperately needed state aid funding necessary to avoid layoffs of police, fire, state workers as well as teachers. Although fiscal responsibility was never of importance during the Bush years, now while under the fake auspices of deficit concern, the very same group has rallied in unison to continue the Bush tax cuts for the super-rich, minimizing how the tax increase for the rich would help reduce the deficit by generating $678 BILLION to the Bush-depleted U.S. Treasury while pretending that the tax cuts won't continue to add to the deficit they 'claim' to be concerned with. Bottom line-they want the rich to get richer and the rest to literally be broke. But why ?

First, due to their absence of having any kind of concrete political plan or agenda to solve the country's needs, the Republican game plan has become to do all they can to bring the country down in hopes that Americans will be so frustrated that they'll vote for The Party of No in 2010 and particularly 2012 in retaliation. Regardless of the fact that they don't really have an actual viable candidate for the presidency, the Republicans feel that if Americans are financially broke enough, homeless enough, fed up enough in general, they will get an instant case of amnesia forgetting that this all started under Republican Bush...and will flock by multi-millions to the No Agenda gang to be rescued. Block unemployment benefits/checks. Make states force layoffs. Support banks not giving loans to individuals or small business owners, even with perfect credit. Help the economy spiral downwardly as fast as possible. Rep. Alan Grayson has actually received death threats for speaking out regarding the pathetic scheme of the Republican party whom MSNBC's Ed Schultz calls "economic terrorists". And although extremely anti-American, this master plan does have more potential for success than no plan or agenda at all. But the regaining of political power through strategic economic destruction is not the only goal of the Republicans.

As most know, the Republican party is 1000% on the side of big corporations. The very companies who have out-sourced all of the U.S. jobs in manufacturing, telecommunications, service industries and more to various foreign places across the globe, wherever they can get their products made for the cheapest price. Most are made in China, where so-called U.S. companies hire Chinese companies to make their products like Barbie Dolls, Tide detergent, Pampers, and the list (see list of 'American' products Made in China)) goes on, while continuing to give the impression that their products are 'Made In America'. Fact is, most products are NOT Made In America anymore due to corporate greed. Since the Chinese will sweat for hours sewing clothes, making car parts or Barbie dolls for 1/10th of American wages, greedy corporations have come to realize that they can't lose through the safety net called globalization. The only ones who do lose are the millions of Americans who become jobless as their jobs are been shipped overseas. So the 'Made In America' products are actually made in China, then shipped to America adding to the U.S. unemployment surge and the huge trade deficit which currently exists.

How can the greedy corporations expect Americans to buy their products if they're out of might ask ? They don't. Henry Ford was once asked why he paid Ford workers such high wages. "That's the only way they can afford to buy one of my cars" he replied. But due to greed, those days are over. U.S. corporations have found a totally new customer base...a new market...and that is China which has 1.3 BILLION people (that's 1 billion more than the U.S.) and India with just a few less. As example, McDonald's Happy Meal sales have been down in the U.S. but overall the company is doing quite well thanks to all the Meals being sold in China and India. And the same applies for almost ALL products. So they don't care if we're too broke to buy their products because free trade has come to their greedy rescue. But there's still that little issue of the cost of shipping the products from China back to America which can be very costly.

The greedy sit....plotting "if only we could save more on the shipping". What if there was a way to get Americans to work for super low wages like the Chinese do. What if the unions could be broken up entirely and all previous wage agreements/contracts became null and void. What if there was a way to make Americans unemployed in such high numbers that they would take whatever job they could get, regardless of the wages, just for survival. What if, to speed up compliance, life-sustaining unemployment checks were stopped, forcing families to literally starve if they didn't settle for pretty much any job obtainable at the much lower pay. What if companies laid everyone off...and then said the only way they could be rehired was to take super-significant pay cuts and reduction in benefits. What if credit for small businesses was blocked by banks or government small business aid disabling them from hiring, growing or even staying in business. Hmmmm.

But the greedy corporations would need law makers, policy makers, political people like an entire political party to make this diabolical plot become a reality. What if a law was passed through the Supreme Court which allowed these same greedy corporations to be considered as an individual with the right to contribute unlimited funding for the political party/persons of their choice. The corporations could legally bribe the politicians with non-stop contributions to make their money-making scheme a reality. It would mean the total restructuring of the American workforce. Paying Chinese wages to workers right here in the good old U.S. of A while continuing to give huge bonuses and tax breaks to what would then truly grow to becoming America's ruling class. If only the corporations had a political party that would work the plan. And if that party was able to regain power they would be able to excelerate the scheme, making it come to fruition even sooner ! But noooo. No party would be THAT anti-American by tearing down our entire U.S. economy and workforce. But I can't help but to hear in my mind, the voices in unison of the Republican party...the very strategic Party of No...a.k.a. the Party of Greed...chanting THEIR version of those famous words....Yes We Can ! And supporting the originator of that inspirational phrase, President Barack Obama, is the ONLY way the 'killers of the middle-class' will be stopped. The Time Is Now...To Unite...AGAINST the master plan of the Republicans. Oh....and did I mention that they would also like to get rid of all so-called entitlement programs like welfare programs and Social Security...just to make sure we have no choice...but to follow the Chinese way. Sayonara.

Shirley Sherrod:
" I Really Think I Should " Sue

Shirley Sherrod said this morning on CNN that she would like to "get back at" Andrew Breitbart.

Asked if she would consider a defamation suit against Breibart, the conservative blogger who posted the edited clip that got her fired, she said, "I really think I should."

"I don't know a lot about the legal profession but that's one person I'd like to get back at, because he came at me. He didn't go after the NAACP; he came at me," she went on.

President Signs Unemployment Extension:
Scolds Republicans for Forcing
American Families to STARVE !

Read President's Statement:

Today, I signed the unemployment insurance extension to restore desperately needed assistance to two and a half million Americans who lost their jobs in the recession.

After a partisan minority used procedural tactics to block the authorization of this assistance three separate times over the past weeks, Americans who are fighting to find a good job and support their families will finally get the support they need to get back on their feet during these tough economic times.

Now it's time for Congress to act on more proposals that support our economic recovery, including passing critical aid to our states and support to small businesses.

Small businesses are the engine of job growth, and measures to cut their taxes and make lending available should not be held hostage to partisan tactics like those that unconscionably held up unemployment insurance.

President Calls Ms.
Shirley Sherrod

Just this morning, Shirley Sherrod had said she would like to speak to The President to tell him her point of view after being fired over the sliced/diced video on a conservative website.

He had reportedly tried the night before to reach Ms. Sherrod but was unsuccessful. The President did reached Ms. Sherrod by telephone today at about 12:35. They had a very pleasant conversation which reportedly lasted 7 minutes.

The President expressed to Ms. Sherrod his regret about the events of the last several days. In their discussion, he emphasized that Secretary Vilsack was sincere in his apology yesterday,(after hastily firing Ms. Sherrod) and in his work to rid USDA of discrimination.

The President told Ms. Sherrod that this misfortune can present an opportunity for her to continue her hard work on behalf of those in need, and he hopes that she will do so.

The FULL Shirley Sherrod Speech
They Didn't Want You To See

The video of Shirley Sherrod released by Andrew Brietbart's Big Government Blog and aired on Fox News on July 19 didn't tell the full story. It was selectively edited to cast her in a negative, racist light. Here is the full video, shot by the local NAACP unit that hosted Ms. Sherrod. As you'll see, Ms. Sherrod is in no way guilty of Fox News' slanderous accusations. Not only should Breitbart and Fox News be sued for slander and defamation of character, but they should both be forced to publicly apologize to Ms. Shirley Sherrod.

WATCH FULL SPEECH: Edited portion starts at 16:35

Absolutely disgusting and offensive how Fox distorted the truth here...
as if ALL Americans are ignorant.
Now that Truth has been revealed it is of vital importance
that Ms. Sherrod's job be reinstated. We must also use these tactics as motivation to Unite us all...Black, White, Red, Brown, Young and FIGHT against the weak, strategic tactics of divide and conquer.

Blacks4Barack SUPPORTS MS.
WATCH: Couple Says: It's A Lie ! She was GREAT TO US !

So Faux News takes a craftily edited video clip from Andrew Breitbart (creator of the anti-ACORN fake pimp) to accuse a woman of being a racist 24 YEARS AGO (!)...but strategically omits The REST OF THE STORY: First...the incident in question happened 24 years ago -- BEFORE she got the USDA job -when she worked with the Georgia field office for the Federation of Southern Cooperative/Land Assistance Fund. Ms. Sherrod said the short video clip EXCLUDED the breadth of the story about how she eventually worked with the man over a two-year period to help ward off foreclosure of his farm, and how she eventually became friends with him and his wife."And I went on to work with many more white farmers," she said. "The story helped me realize that race is not the issue, it's about the people who have and the people who don't. When I speak to groups, I try to speak about getting beyond the issue of
race."” Very interesting how Faux left all of those facts out in their desire to fertilize racial division....which should be AGAINST THE LAW ! Wait....slander IS against the law ! Here's an interesting article titled:

Farmer's wife says fired USDA
official helped SAVE their Land !


Despite being defended by the white farmer she allegedly discriminated against, former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Shirley Sherrod will not get her job back.

Sherrod "kept us out of bankruptcy," said Eloise Spooner, 82. She and her husband Roger Sooner, who own a farm in Iron City, located in southwest Georgia, approached Sherrod in 1986 -- when she worked with the Georgia field office for the Federation of Southern Cooperative/Land Assistance Fund -- seeking assistance.

Sherrod was asked to resign Monday night by USDA Deputy Under Secretary Cheryl Cook after videotaped comments she made in March at a local NAACP banquet surfaced on the web.

"The comments, taken out of context or not, hinder her ability to be an effective rural development director for Georgia," said a U.S. Agriculture spokesperson who wished not to be identified. "Because of that videotape, it would be very hard for her to to be an effective messenger."

The NAACP, which released a statement Monday critical of Sherrod, backtracked Tuesday, saying they were "snookered" by Andrew Breitbart, whose website released the edited video. Breitbart did not respond to a request seeking comment.

"Having reviewed the full tape, spoken to Ms. Sherrod, and most importantly heard the testimony of the white farmers mentioned in this story, we now believe the organization that edited the documents did so with the intention of deceiving millions of Americans," NAACP President Ben Jealous said in a statement. "The tape of Ms. Sherrod’s speech at an NAACP banquet was deliberately edited to create a false impression of racial bias, and to create a controversy where none existed. This just shows the lengths to which extremist elements will go to discredit legitimate opposition."

Jealous asked the USDA to reconsider Sherrod's dismissal but, in a statement, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack stood by his decision. (read rest of article)

for being TOO racist...

Verrrry interesting !

Tea Party Federation Expels Mark Williams Over 'Offensive' Response to NAACP's Racism Charge


The National Tea Party Federation has expelled conservative commentator and Tea Party Express spokesman Mark Williams over a fictional letter Williams wrote on his blog last week from "Colored People" to Abraham Lincoln.

"We, in the last 24 hours, have expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams from the National Tea Party Federation because of the letter that he wrote," federation spokesman David Webb said Sunday on CBS's "Face The Nation."

Williams wrote the blog post, which has since been taken down, in response to a resolution adopted by the NAACP accusing Tea Party leaders of tolerating racism within the movement.

"Dear Mr. Lincoln," began Williams' letter. "We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don't cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!"

Webb called the blog post "clearly offensive."

The Right-Wing Rage Machine

Unloads a Frenzy of Race-Baiting

Media Matters

The summer months are typically when the quality of political discourse in this country reaches its yearly nadir. Washington tends to slow down from June to August, and people who hold moderate interest in the political process instead turn to barbecues and baseball games. As a consequence, the people who remain engaged are those who are more, let's say, passionate in their beliefs, and aren't going to let a little thing like "other things to do" get in the way of their political activism. Summer is also tough for political journalists who still have deadlines to meet, but much less material with which to work. As a consequence, we see stories that would ordinarily merit passing or no mention earn disproportionate coverage. Minor gaffes become "scandals," non-issues become "controversial," and the end result is that pretty much everyone gets angrier.

It's in this environment that the right-wing media thrive, practiced as they are in ginning up stories based on manufactured outrage and utter nonsense. And lately, they've all had one topic on their minds: race. Specifically the racism of black political figures, which they claim is nothing short of institutional policy in the Obama administration, and the racism of white tea partiers, which they claim doesn't exist.

And where else can one begin except with the ever-evolving, increasingly ridiculous New Black Panther Party "scandal," which revolves around the allegation -- and it's hard to believe that right-wingers actually profess to believe this -- that the Obama Justice Department dropped voter intimidation charges against members of this fringe hate group due to the administration's official policy of not pursuing cases in which the defendant is black and the victim is white. Is there evidence for any of this? No. Does the partisan GOP hack/former DOJ attorney making this allegation have any facts to support it? Not so much. But that's the story they're sticking to, and it has sparked a frenzy of race-baiting more explicit than any we've seen thus far during the Obama administration.

Fox News has, of course, been leading the charge, embarking on what Jonathan Chait calls "the most widespread and mainstream right-wing effort to exploit racial fears against Obama." Glenn Beck nonsensically claimed that the New Black Panthers "have ties to the White House" and flat-out accused the administration of tacitly endorsing the "race war" he sees coming down the pike. Perpetually outraged Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, the "straight news" driving force behind the bogus story, has been corrected on the facts more times than should be necessary, but continues to hype the story with wide-eyed indignation.

In some ways, that's to be expected from Fox News. The danger is that, with not much else going on and the right-wing rage machine operating at high speed, the bogus story starts bleeding into the mainstream press. Kelly herself boasted that Fox News "dragged the media kicking and screaming" to the New Black Panther story, and already there have been overly credulous treatments of the non-scandal on CNN and in the pages of The Washington Post.

The obverse to the right-wing media's fact-free claims of racism at the Justice Department are their assurances, contrary to the facts, that there exists no racism in the tea party movement. After the NAACP signaled its intention to pass a resolution condemning the "racist elements" within the tea party, conservatives went ballistic, claiming that the many, many, many, many, many examples of tea party racism and bigotry simply don't exist. And nothing will convince them otherwise -- not the many photographs of racist placards at tea party rallies (if Sean Hannity couldn't find them, they must not exist!), nor the word of civil rights legend Rep. John Lewis (he's a liar!).

Bigoted, racial attacks from conservatives against Obama aren't anything new. Hell, not even a week after he announced his intention to run for the presidency, they were excitedly spreading false rumors that he spent his childhood in a madrassa. But this past month has been something different. Gone are the code words, the winks and nods, and the dog whistles -- the conservative media are openly and aggressively trying to turn Obama's race into something threatening. You can chalk it up to the heat, the summer doldrums, or whatever. The fact is that they're going down roads from which there is no coming back, and it's only going to get worse as the summer rolls on.

President's Weekly Address

SLAMS Republicans !

The President BLASTS Republicans in the Senate who are disgustingly blocking unemployment checks for MILLIONS of American families, forcing them to literally STARVE...and also small business tax breaks to create jobs -- even as they push for permanent, massive tax cuts for the richest Americans . What a pathetic group !


B4B Note: While the Repubs pathetically voted in lock-step to block unemployment checks for struggling Americans, it is important that we always keep in mind that Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson (D) was the lone Dem vote siding WITH the Repubs...and the measure lost by one vote....BEN NELSON'S. And THAT is just as PATHETIC as the Repubs.

Disappointing that Harry Reid, and ALL The Dems

Senate Passes Wall Street Reform:

Another Incredible Accomplishment/First


President Barack Obama !

A broad financial reform bill, designed to remedy the mistakes that led to the economic meltdown of 2008, officially passed the Senate Thursday by a vote of 60-39.

A 60-38 vote earlier in the day on Thursday allowed the bill to clear the Senate's last procedural hurdle, though support was split sharply along partisan lines.

Only three Republicans -- Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine and Scott Brown of Massachusetts -- voted with Democrats in the initial vote to end the debate, reported The Associated Press. Democrat Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, who has blasted the bill for not being strong enough, voted against it along with most Republicans.

The bill is now making its way to President Barack Obama, who has publicly demanded sweeping financial reform.

Even before the vote, Democrats acknowledged that the bill in its current state is not a cure-all.

"It is not a perfect bill," Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), chair of the Banking Committee, said. "But we believe we've done the best we could under the circumstances to see to it that we never have another bailout of a major financial institution at taxpayer expense." Read rest of article:

I Like This One...

Hip Hop Recording Artist
Jasiri X

" What If The Tea Party Was BLACK " !

From Jasiri X:

A few months ago, Tim Wise wrote a widely circulated article called, "Imagine if the Tea Party Was Black " which challenged America to take a close look at the hypocrisy of the Right Wing. Now, a Pittsburgh rapper is accepting his challenge in true Hip Hop form. Jasiri X has released a video called "What if the Tea Party was Black." The Hip Hop artist says that he got the idea when Paradise,a member of the pro-black rap group X-Clan, forwarded him a copy of Wise's article. "I saw the article and I liked the concept," says the rapper. So Jasiri hit the studio with producer Cynik Lethal while Paradise grabbed his video camera and they went on their mission to defeat the Right Wing propaganda machine.


I luv seeing our young Brothers and Sisters getting involved and spreading knowledge. Great job Jasiri X !

TIME FOR TRUTH ! Here is a list of AMERICAN companies who manufacture in CHINA ! Like Avon, GE, AT&T, and MANY MORE ! For
ALL who think it's 'those mexicans' who are taking jobs or responsible
for high U.S. unemployment levels...these AMERICAN companies (BKA greedy traitors) manufacture their products in CHINA...and then...export them from China back to us...creating the high trade deficit...not to mention the extremely high unemployment rate which would not exist if these products were truly
Made In America.

THIS (unreported) fact SHOULD be the emphasis but won't be reported by our corporate controlled/manipulative media. Check the list.....REALLY SAD ! (and long)

(pass it on)
