On Gulf Coast, Nervous Wait for Oil Arrival

"The Hard Truth Is...Our Worst Fears Are Now Unfolding."

Deepwater Horizon Incident, Gulf of Mexico

This is not the time for finger pointing or casting stones. That time will surely come. Now is the time for all of us on the Gulf Coast to unite in a herculean effort. Our local officials must now lead by acting quickly and thinking outside the box on this one if we are to mitigate the impact of what we can not avoid.
    The hard truth and reality of this catastrophe; We have opened an artery in Mother Earth and she is bleeding all over us from an ocean depth of over a mile deep.
     The worst part is there is no way to stem the flow. The technology does not exist. We have unleashed Armageddon in the Gulf Of Mexico and our lives are forever changed in drastic ways that all will soon comprehend.     TP.

                                                                                                                                                                          Situation: Thursday 29 April

Today the Deepwater Horizon incident declared a Spill of National Significance (SONS). A SONS is defined as, "a spill that, due to its severity, size, location, actual or potential impact on the public health and welfare or the environment, or the necessary response effort, is so complex that it requires extraordinary coordination of federal, state, local, and responsible party resources to contain and clean up the discharge" and allows greater federal involvement. Estimates of the release rate increased to 5000 barrels (210,000 gallons) per day based on surface observations and reports of a newly discovered leak in the damaged piping on the sea floor.

NOAA is assisting the Unified Command in evaluating a new technique to apply dispersants to oil at the source - 5000’ below the surface, if successful this would keep plumes and sheens from forming. Work continues on a piping system designed to take oil from a collection dome at the sea floor to tankers on the surface; this technique has never been tried at 5000’. Drilling of a relief or cut-off well is still planned, but will not be complete for several months.

Campaign for Liberty - Audit the Fed

Campaign for Liberty - Audit the Fed: "'Audit the Federal Reserve'
Petition to my U.S. Senators

Whereas: The Federal Reserve refuses to give a public accounting of the TRILLIONS in recent taxpayer-backed loans; and

Whereas: Congress has the responsibility to force a public audit of the Federal Reserve, and the American people deserve to know how their tax dollars are being spent; and

Whereas: Allowing the Fed to remain out of control and shrouded in secrecy clearly allows for abuse and the continued stealing of our tax dollars through inflation and unaccounted electronic bank 'loans'; and

Whereas: The Federal Reserve's abuses lead to constant economic crises like the current housing crisis, international banking crisis and the resulting chaos; and

Whereas: The Federal Reserve System forces fuel, food, housing, medical care and education costs upward, meaning that everyone who is NOT on the government dole is forced to make do with less as the value of money slowly decreases; and

Whereas: History shows us that riots, violence and full-scale police states can result when people finally realize fiat money isn't worth the paper it's printed on and REFUSE to accept it;

Therefore: I urge you to cosponsor and make every effort to seek roll call votes on the Audit the Fed Bill, S 604."

"The Earth Bleeding To Death"

   To Whom It May Concern,

   I am deeply concerned about how the media is portraying and handling the new law in Arizona , regarding illegal immigration in our state.

It seems that for whatever reason , The media seems to broadcast the protesters and opponents views much closer , rather than the mainstream citizens view , and the Federal Laws that have been in place for years.

Why isn't this being treated fairly ? Why is Arizona ,and the supporters of this bill being compared to " Nazis" and "Racists" ? No civil human being is wanting , or calling for the extermination of illegals. We just want ALL people to come here legally , just as the millions before them did. How does the word " Nazi" or "Racist " come into play for simply pleading with the government to stop the illegal flooding?

This isn't a " Racial " issue . It's an " Illegal " issue . And I'm offended when I turn on my television , or open up my newspaper to see words like that . And whenever opponents use the " White People " words I cringe . Do people not understand that what they call " Whites " are people that are actually made up of of other nationalities too ? Are the opponents of this law themselves " racially profiling " ?

As a citizen of the USA , and living here in Arizona , I have had first hand experience of being victimized by an illegal aliens criminal activity. A couple years ago we had found out that my 15 year old daughters social security number was stolen and being used by an illegal immigrant for employment . Nothing ever came of it because the police could not find her . And it was a real pain when trying to get it straight with social security .Where were the cameras and media to broadcast and make a stand for my teenage daughter ? Where were HER rights then? I know there are thousands more like my daughter that have been victimized . Where are our rights ?

Many years ago I lived in Texas , and had the privilege to meet and work alongside an Iranian man named Zeke . We became very good friends , and we often spoke about our families with each other . I can't tell you how many times his eyes would tear up when he talked about his wife . You see , his wife was a citizen of Iran at the time , And Zeke was doing everything in his power to get her here to the USA so that they could start their new life here in the United States together . The problem was , he was doing everything the RIGHT way , and was waiting on the governments paperwork to be completed . So while he went about it the correct way , he suffered greatly each and every day.

With that being said , I wonder how my friend Zeke , or his wife would feel now. After all , He and his wife only wanted a better way of life too.

Is amnesty for all illegals really the answer ? Is it really even plausible ? And if so wouldn't America simply be creating a bigger monster if this was done ? How can the US give amnesty to all the illegal aliens that are currently here , but in the same breath , turn away every other nationality that wants to come too ,simply because they aren't on american soil ? To me , and probably millions of other americans , that would be the true definition of " Racist" . What do we tell our friends , and relatives that are currently citizens of other countries , But want so much to come live here as a citizen too ?

And if ever amnesty is mentioned , How many more illegal immigrants would come into the USA then ? Just to beat the deadline before the bill is passed . Do we dare say millions more? Who's to determine who was here , and who wasn't . And with all due respect , we can definately expect the " Race " card to played then on each and every single immigrant that was turned away because he was thought not to have been here in time.

When did the flooding of the United States by illegals become okay ? Why did Janet Napolitano and our Government waste tax payers money for border patrol , and construction of a border fence then if she, and the government refused to enforce it in the first place ?

911 was a changing point in the history of the United States . Homeland security told us each and every day that they were protecting us . They were spending millions to secure our safety . Please , Someone , Mr Obama , tell us . How is our country secure when we don't even know who's coming or going into our country ? And with all due respect what does a terrorists look like ?

So some believe that by the police having the power to question ones citizenship , is simply racial profiling . And that it infringes on their civil rights . To those people , and to Mr Obama , and to you in the media I ask , when was the last time you went through security at the airport , either locally , or nationally ? Take of your shoes , take off your belt , empty your pockets, place your purse in here , " Oh , and by the way could you please step over here sir I have a few questions for you ".

That's okay , But asking your citizenship isn't ? With all due respect If it wasn't for 911 and other illegal activities , the American citizens would never be going through this in the first place.

As a legal citizen of the United States I recently had to purchase passports for my family . I spent hundreds of hard earned dollars so that they could enter other countries , including Mexico .How ironic is it that the same government that seems to allow free flowing entrance into America , would charge my family to go out of it ? Sounds hypocritical .

Let me make a statement for all the people who say "Mexicans are only taking the jobs that nobody else wants " . First of all lets be correct here , that's simply NOT the truth . And to the people that state " Mexicans work harder " , all I'd like to say to you is this are you "racially profiling"?

But if one TRULY believes that ignorant statement , I ask you to take a look at Mexico as a whole and then look me in the eyes the next time you say that .

The simple truth of the matter is this . Both the American citizens AND the illegal aliens are getting the short end of the stick here . And the culprit is the businesses that hire the illegals . That's right , Our own companies and businesses are giving the american citizens the finger here. The companies and businesses want undocumented, cheap labor and rather than pay the typical american certain wages , along with insurance , they opt for an illegal so that the company can save thousands of dollars in cash and benefits. And we America , support them ? If amnesty ever does come into affect , these businesses and companies will be kicking themselves . They'll now have to pay better wages , and pay benefits to those illegals that they previously hired . Something they had avoided doing in the first place by hiring an american. Way to go. How many Americans are currently unemployed now ? How much money would the government save if they didn't have to keep extending unemployment benefits ? 11 million illegals in our country , and how many unemployed americans ?

" Well if you get rid of the illegals , then some businesses will pack up and leave ",,,,,,,,,Really ? News flash , read the paragraph above . THAT'S why they'll leave. Besides it happens all the time NOW. Companies pack up and move overseas all the time Next time you call your credit card company you'll see for yourself . Don't fool yourselves into thinking that companies will simply move in defense of the illegals rights movement .They do it to SAVE THEMSELVES MONEY.

I watch the news each and every day , and I see people like Felipe Calderon ,Salvador Reza,Raul Grijalva , and Mexico President President Felipe Calderon all demanding the rights of illegal aliens . With all due respect , what nationality are these people ? and where are the chinese figures , or the cubans , the iranians etc etc ? How is it wrong for anyone else to say " illegal mexicans " or " Illegal Hispanics" , when thats all you see but self proclaimed hispanics on tv or in the paper demanding special rights FOR THEIR PEOPLE ? Why aren't they on the docks in Florida helping out the cuban immigrants that are trying to get here from overseas?

The simple truth is , we know why they aren't . And that my friend looks ,smells and sounds selfish and racist to me.

I'm all for anyone in the world living here, regardless of race or religion . I understand wanting to have a better life , a better education . As long as it's done the right way like millions of others before you had to do . You don't just get to cut to the front of the line because it's not quick enough for you .

We simply cannot open the door just for our neighbors , and yet close it on our friends . For that itself would be racist , and unfair treatment for millions of others.

So unless we open up the United States to ANYONE and EVERYONE. no one should receive preferential treatment . NO ONE !!

             Just Add Hyperinflation: Its Armageddon

As I stand upon the mountain top, over looking the huddling masses of the peasants of humanity. My long beard and shanks rippling in the wind, my grizzled staff raised high, pointing at the dark mass of rolling darkness, darkness broken only rarely by the crackle of lightening. It is a darkness like no other, a mass of despair, a malice that is palatable and pungent in its hostility. My voice booms like the thunder of that storm, pummeling the gathered, clutching masses of frightened humanity: rich and poor, high and low, man and woman."Behold! Your Lord High Economist, the godling Keynes, through his priests the Interventionist Central Bankers have declared!" I pause for dramatic effect, fear and mysticism in the eyes of the masses. Mysticism at the mention of the shadowy man, nah godling John Maynard Keynes, fear at the coming of his Central Bankers. "Thou, sinners, thou thrifters, thou who have questioned his eternal fear the fires of Inflation! Thou wilest be purged of your doubt and your consumer debt through the fires of Inflation! And since you voiced your doubt! Since you questioned the Will! It will be no simple inflation BUT...(more dramatic pause)...DEPRESSIONARY-HYPERINFLATION! You will eat grass and choke on weeds as you fondly remember steak dinners and red wine!"Gasps come from the huddle masses. Women cry out in shock and dismay. Babies wale, their cries mixing with the howling of the wind that brings the storm of Depressionary-Hyperinflation. The gnashing of teeth is heard over all. The End is neigh, thy punishment severe. I laugh the laughter of the mad, my eyes sparkling in the coming darkness."But how will this be worse then just Hyperinflation or a Great Depression?" comes a brave voice from the masses and suddenly the people's fear is abetted. Hope once more arises in their eyes that maybe, just maybe, this all is not as bad as they had but moments before feared. Even the storm seems to pause, rolling and pulsing but some how less menacing and stationary."Hmmm, this will not do, not do at all!" I think. "I will have to explain myself so that these fools will once more tremble." I pull up my robes around my knees and settle down upon the rock, perching over the masses, a wicked wisdom covering my face."To find this answer, let us examine, oh huddled masses, the difference between Hyperinflation and Depression and how both would normally effect your lives." They listen attentively."In a hyperinflationary situation, one usually created by a hyper expansionary government, a debt loaded economy or some catastrophe such as a major war, the money supply is rapidly expanded. The economy continues to roll along, jobs continue to exist as demand also continues to exist. At first, the workers are freed from their debts, as the amounts owned literally melt away in the face of larger and larger pay checks. Of course, as is usual, salaries rarely stay up to date with prices, which are much more agile and elastic. Soon the worker finds that while debt free, he can afford less and less to buy with his ever more worthless money, but at least, ground under the heel of hyperinflation, he is still employed and remains fed, even if on bread and processed meat rather then on croissants and steak."They bob their heads in understanding. Many of these peoples of the world have lived all their lives with inflations of one level or another and quite a few with hyperinflation. It is, after all, the order of the century, as the godling Keynes dictated to the interventionist fiat monetary systems. I go on."Then there is depression, something that most of you know little about. First spending falls, then output falls to match the new lower demand levels. Of course excess employees are laid off. These in turn spend little if anything and their employed brethren also spend much less, in fear of losing their jobs. Less spent means less produced and the cycle repeats. Debt become overwhelming and crushing, as the value of the dollar becomes greater, again, adding to the cycle. Of course, for those tens of millions unemployed, at least what few savings they have and what little money they get from their governments, will now buy them more then it did before.The pricing levels of the system are reset and will be kinder to future generations, but like most such things, it is painful and a nasty, if not necessary a long, process.""But how does this link back to Depressionary-Hyperinflation?" again that doubting Thomas. Enough of this, time to learn fear."Well," I begin, in an quite, almost gentle voice, "you see, the people fear this painful process of depression and they call upon their betters, their masters to do something, anything about it. Of course the Monetary Interventionists know only one thing to do: lower interest rates and print money. At first, this makes the pain less so and easier to bare. The problem is, especially for you millions and millions of unemployed, it is rather hard to propagate. Each easing requires more and more cash, sorta like a drug addiction. But once the cash hits the system it propagates inflation. This of course takes time to appear, so it is rather hard to guess when to much is to much and out of fear of not being enough, that gut feeling is ignored. Then comes the Hyperinflation!" I feel satisfied in my explanation, but still there is hope in their eyes!"So..." again that voice, though this time a bit more hesitantly."So!" I begin, "for those 15 to 30% of you without jobs, on meager fixed government monies, on pensions and's over, in days and weeks, your money buys nothing as the fires of Depressionary-Hyperinflation burn it all away! You will beg, you will steal, you will burn in rage and hunger and as the living dead, you will fall upon those who still have jobs but are to poor themselves to help you and you will consume them to! Fire and flame, hunger and despair! Then you will, in your orgy of despair and destruction, turn to the saviors who will come to you, the demagogues who will enslave you! Then and only then, will you truly know suffering!" My voice rings in stark laughter. I am on my feet again, waving my staff...the dark clouds booming and rolling forth.Now they understand, now they know, there is no hope, no salvation, not from this one. Some throw themselves at my feet, begging for salvation, others throw themselves from the nearby cliffs...but there is no salvation, no...only the Fires of Depressionary-Hyperinflation.My laughter is swallowed by the rolls of thunder.

                   "OPEN YOUR MIND"

"Imagine if the Tea Party Was Black" - Tim Wise

Let’s play a game, shall we? The name of the game is called “Imagine.” The way it’s played is simple: we’ll envision recent happenings in the news, but then change them up a bit. Instead of envisioning white people as the main actors in the scenes we’ll conjure - the ones who are driving the action - we’ll envision black folks or other people of color instead. The object of the game is to imagine the public reaction to the events or incidents, if the main actors were of color, rather than white. Whoever gains the most insight into the workings of race in America, at the end of the game, wins.

So let’s begin.

Imagine that hundreds of black protesters were to descend upon Washington DC and Northern Virginia, just a few miles from the Capitol and White House, armed with AK-47s, assorted handguns, and ammunition. And imagine that some of these protesters —the black protesters — spoke of the need for political revolution, and possibly even armed conflict in the event that laws they didn’t like were enforced by the government? Would these protester — these black protesters with guns — be seen as brave defenders of the Second Amendment, or would they be viewed by most whites as a danger to the republic? What if they were Arab-Americans? Because, after all, that’s what happened recently when white gun enthusiasts descended upon the nation’s capital, arms in hand, and verbally announced their readiness to make war on the country’s political leaders if the need arose.

Imagine that white members of Congress, while walking to work, were surrounded by thousands of angry black people, one of whom proceeded to spit on one of those congressmen for not voting the way the black demonstrators desired. Would the protesters be seen as merely patriotic Americans voicing their opinions, or as an angry, potentially violent, and even insurrectionary mob? After all, this is what white Tea Party protesters did recently in Washington.

Imagine that a rap artist were to say, in reference to a white president: “He’s a piece of shit and I told him to suck on my machine gun.” Because that’s what rocker Ted Nugent said recently about President Obama.

Imagine that a prominent mainstream black political commentator had long employed an overt bigot as Executive Director of his organization, and that this bigot regularly participated in black separatist conferences, and once assaulted a white person while calling them by a racial slur. When that prominent black commentator and his sister — who also works for the organization — defended the bigot as a good guy who was misunderstood and “going through a tough time in his life” would anyone accept their excuse-making? Would that commentator still have a place on a mainstream network? Because that’s what happened in the real world, when Pat Buchanan employed as Executive Director of his group, America’s Cause, a blatant racist who did all these things, or at least their white equivalents: attending white separatist conferences and attacking a black woman while calling her the n-word.

Imagine that a black radio host were to suggest that the only way to get promoted in the administration of a white president is by “hating black people,” or that a prominent white person had only endorsed a white presidential candidate as an act of racial bonding, or blamed a white president for a fight on a school bus in which a black kid was jumped by two white kids, or said that he wouldn’t want to kill all conservatives, but rather, would like to leave just enough—“living fossils” as he called them—“so we will never forget what these people stood for.” After all, these are things that Rush Limbaugh has said, about Barack Obama’s administration, Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama, a fight on a school bus in Belleville, Illinois in which two black kids beat up a white kid, and about liberals, generally.

Imagine that a black pastor, formerly a member of the U.S. military, were to declare, as part of his opposition to a white president’s policies, that he was ready to “suit up, get my gun, go to Washington, and do what they trained me to do.” This is, after all, what Pastor Stan Craig said recently at a Tea Party rally in Greenville, South Carolina.

Imagine a black radio talk show host gleefully predicting a revolution by people of color if the government continues to be dominated by the rich white men who have been “destroying” the country, or if said radio personality were to call Christians or Jews non-humans, or say that when it came to conservatives, the best solution would be to “hang ‘em high.” And what would happen to any congressional representative who praised that commentator for “speaking common sense” and likened his hate talk to “American values?” After all, those are among the things said by radio host and best-selling author Michael Savage, predicting white revolution in the face of multiculturalism, or said by Savage about Muslims and liberals, respectively. And it was Congressman Culbertson, from Texas, who praised Savage in that way, despite his hateful rhetoric.

Imagine a black political commentator suggesting that the only thing the guy who flew his plane into the Austin, Texas IRS building did wrong was not blowing up Fox News instead. This is, after all, what Anne Coulter said about Tim McVeigh, when she noted that his only mistake was not blowing up the New York Times.

Imagine that a popular black liberal website posted comments about the daughter of a white president, calling her “typical redneck trash,” or a “whore” whose mother entertains her by “making monkey sounds.” After all that’s comparable to what conservatives posted about Malia Obama on last year, when they referred to her as “ghetto trash.”

Imagine that black protesters at a large political rally were walking around with signs calling for the lynching of their congressional enemies. Because that’s what white conservatives did last year, in reference to Democratic party leaders in Congress.

In other words, imagine that even one-third of the anger and vitriol currently being hurled at President Obama, by folks who are almost exclusively white, were being aimed, instead, at a white president, by people of color. How many whites viewing the anger, the hatred, the contempt for that white president would then wax eloquent about free speech, and the glories of democracy? And how many would be calling for further crackdowns on thuggish behavior, and investigations into the radical agendas of those same people of color?

To ask any of these questions is to answer them. Protest is only seen as fundamentally American when those who have long had the luxury of seeing themselves as prototypically American engage in it. When the dangerous and dark “other” does so, however, it isn’t viewed as normal or natural, let alone patriotic. Which is why Rush Limbaugh could say, this past week, that the Tea Parties are the first time since the Civil War that ordinary, common Americans stood up for their rights: a statement that erases the normalcy and “American-ness” of blacks in the civil rights struggle, not to mention women in the fight for suffrage and equality, working people in the fight for better working conditions, and LGBT folks as they struggle to be treated as full and equal human beings.

And this, my friends, is what white privilege is all about. The ability to threaten others, to engage in violent and incendiary rhetoric without consequence, to be viewed as patriotic and normal no matter what you do, and never to be feared and despised as people of color would be, if they tried to get away with half the shit we do, on a daily basis.

Game Over.

We, The People Can Fix Our Country.

The federal government did not come into existence in order to right every wrong. The feds are obliged to recognize our natural rights. When the government behaves with no self-recognized limitations, when its only restraint is whatever it can get away with, when it actively attacks rather than forcefully protects our natural rights, then, as Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, and as federal law still states, “it is the duty of the people to alter or abolish it.”  Glenn Nunley.   North Florida.


   "Sarah Palin has been an exercise in Pygmalionism gone wrong. The most famous female politician in the world today is a vain and sanctimonious woman of boundless ambition and no vision." She is a dangerous work in progress. This begs the question, "who are her sculptors and mentors?"
     Given the right political circumstances coupled with the acute economic conditions that are being experienced in the country Sarah Palin has opportunistically amassed a sufficient following of the "herd mentality"to catapult her into power. All that would be needed is a cataclysmic event whether real or contrived to stampede her conformist inherited electorate to run this country off a cliff. She has and continues to gain a position of undefined prominence simply by parading around the country, wrapping herself in the flag and parroting the customary patriotic/religious party lines and pretending to represent freedom.
     If the sain and educated free thinking people of this country fail to recognize this clear and present danger to our country, there is the real possibility that we will once again witness political history repeat itself in tyrannical proportions not yet imagined by the people of the present time.   Glenn Nunley  North Florida.
