economy

oh dear, bad news this morning on the economic front. then stupid john mccain speaking in jacksonville florida saying the same old thing, "the fundamentals of our economy are strong." well i'm sorry sir, you yourself have said you need some help with the economy.

if you want some education about why we are where we are with our economy and this credit crisis i have a few referals for you, so you will be more educated that stupid war mongering mccain:

this american life did a great piece in conjunction with NPR news called the giant pool of money (episode # 355). you can listen for free, down load for fee, or just look at the transcript HERE.  this episode has a lot of information.

a great documentary maxed out.  it's awesomely informative, and slightly depressing but true.

one i haven't seen yet, but the web site is great is I.O.U.S.A. which promises to be greatly informative.  they also have a p.d.f. you can download that is a brochure about the state of the union's finances.  wowza, very informative, can't wait to check out the movie.

i found this site that seems to have some good info too.  nightmare on wall street.

america freedom to fascism has a lot of interesting info too.  i talked about that earlier, but here is a link you can actually watch it!

kiko was talking about what the reason for the 9/11 attacks were at that the terrorist actually have succeeded in their goal.  we have been dragged into a un-winable war (thank you general petraeus for admitting that) and our economy is crumbling.  i came upon another documentary that a review said, "will make your jaw drop again and again".  let's get a little context into the lives of these people shall we, let's learn a lesson rather than assume (which makes and ass of you), assume they want a life like ours, assume they need our same values, assume they are ready and happy to accept this way of life.  anyway looking forward to checking out farewell israel:  bush, iran and the revolt of islam.

man, i love learning.  i can't believe half of america wants someone in the white house because they are easy to understand, or is just like them.  we've had 8 years of stupidity in the white house.  having someone who is knowledgeable and educated is exciting!

and remember:

"The real incomes of middle-class families grew more than twice as fast under Democratic presidents as they did under Republican presidents. Even more remarkable, the real incomes of working-poor families (at 20th percentile of the income distribution) grew six times as fast when Democrats held the White House. Only the incomes of affluent families were relatively impervious to partisan politics, growing robustly under Democrats and Republicans alike."

don't you think if everyone just looked at the economic history, and knew that democrats actually do the economy better they would vote on the issue not on the wedge issues!  f.n.a.

Highly recommend Blood and Oil. Amazing documentary. And yeah, honestly, I thank George H.W. Bush and his Secretary of Defense, Dick Cheney, now the V.P., for pissing off Bin Laden (a former U.S. ally) and causing 9/11. Amazing film.
