Dear Branden,

In the New York Times for June 13th, the Pentagon proclaimed that Afghanistan holds almost one trillion lira - no, sorry, that's one trillion dollars - in hitherto-unknown mineral wealth.

Allow me to offer these revelations:

(1) Paris Hilton actually is Albert Einstein, with a wig. Think about it - you've never seen them together, have you?

(2) The Moon is made of green cheese. Specifically, a lovely Camembert, slightly fruity, that goes very well with cabernet.

(3) While you were at work today, someone broke into your house, stole everything, and replaced it with an exact duplicate (apologies to Steven Wright).

$1 trillion dollars in mineral wealth in Afghanistan. What a lame excuse for a lame excuse.

But the interesting thing is that the Pentagon felt it necessary to serve up this fevered imagining. Why? Because they say that they need another $33 billion for the war by July 4th, or, or, or, I don't know - they just say that they need it. And for once, Congress isn't falling all over itself to give the generals whatever they want. So get ready to hear about lithium in Afghanistan, oil in Iraq, and diamonds in your bathtub.

With 14 million Americans out of work, support for endless war is crumbling. People want an America that is #1 in health, #1 in education, #1 in quality of life, not #1 in number of foreign countries occupied.

Send an e-mail to your Member of Congress. Ask him or her to oppose the "emergency supplemental" for more and more war.

Hope. Change. How about some peace, for a change?

Courage,

Alan Grayson



I really support Alan Grayson he has done a lot for us ordinary people. He only accepts campaign funds from citizens, he co-authored the Audit the Fed bill with Ron Paul, proposed Medicare for all, and has been on a constant fight against the wars.

His emails lately make me think that he may be visiting ATS.

P.S. If you're there Alan Grayson, we're pulling for ya!

For those of us, who might not be aware of, or know of this Grayson fellow, could you supply a few more details, of who he is?

Honestly, while I could do a search, and will, I've never heard of him!

Are you a friend of Graysons, or is this a mass email to all his supporters?

It seems very sarcastic to have been sent out in mass, but I still like it!
What state is Grayson running in?

It's a mass email.

He is running as a Progressive Democrat in Florida's 8th District (Orlando).

Grayson and Kucinich are the only two democrats in all of congress that aren't total slimeballs.

They are however totally clueless on what delivers prosperity to the American people.

More government ain't it.

I have to give credit where credit is due though, and Grayson's support of the Fed audit and his support for ending the wars is to be commended.

I have been a Grayson supporter since I first found out who he was.

Grayson 2012!


If you're there, Alan... think about it.

He's the congressman in my district and he's never mailed me a thing, even though I'm on his mailing list and have written him with requests. I'm having trouble believing he wrote this.

Alan Grayson is one of the good guys. There are some hilarious youtube videos, one where he is giving Bernanke fits.

www.youtube.com...

There are others, he's a killer.

One point: You have to have integrity in government first and foremost. Secondly, accountability. He is trying to get both. He gives progressives a GOOD name for once.

You should scratch out Kucinich since all it took was one measly plane ride and a lolly pop on Air Force One for him to sell out on the Health Care bill.

Grayson is cool on some things. I like him alright. He's better than most, which isn't saying that much, but I do kind of like the guy. I don't like his views on Medicare and I have a few other philosophical disagreements with the guy but there are definitely way worse out there.

Kucinich wanted to outlaw electronic weapons, until he came to his senses and decided to outlaw guns instead.

Electronic weapons? What electronic weapons?

Worse than slime. Cowardly slime.

The best thing about Grayson is that he has BALLS. He doesn't care.

I'd much rather see someone like him as President right now.

He fights for regular people and not corporate interests.

Do I agree with all his views...certainly not....but he actually seems to care...which is extremely rare in these times.

IMO....we need the kind of leader who is willing to kick ass and take names...and to call out all the corruption.

If he ran in 2012, as it stands right now...I'd definitely vote for him.

Without Grayson's support on the bill, it most likely would have never gotten as far as it did. Yes, it's been watered down, but it certainly wasn't because of him. He was able to get many Dems to sign up and co-sponsor the bill in the house.

He is definitely one of the good guys.

Bernie Sanders is a good guy as well. Yes, he watered down the audit the Fed bill...but I don't think he had a choice. If he wanted to get the votes to keep the bill going to get something done...he had too. I was pretty angry at him for that at the time...but I understand why he did it.

He is one of the good guys as well...he has been fighting for american workers and family for YEARS. He hammered former Fed Chairman Greenspan many, many times.

What if...

What if the 14 million people that have no jobs join the army.

There seems to be money ( which your government does not have ) enough for their defense budget... I should call it offense budget because defense is when you are defending from attack. Instead of being the attacker. Right ?

Anyway.

With 14 million more troops TPTB have a lot more gun meat that is expendable.
They can easily call out martial law. Again money is not the problem as it magically appears when the defense budget is mentioned. Or they will set up another flag attack and mineral wealth to have some more.

:Can we have some more daddy ?
-No you can not have some more.
lease ?
-No. Now stop wining.
:But daddy.
-Yes.
:If I told you that I will make an unimaginable fortune with it ? Can I then have some ?
-Maybe...
:It is going to be worth it.
-Ohh... OK Here some money

Kid to friend.
:I told you it will work.
-How did you do it ?
:Simple. I have lied and presented him with a possibility...
:Easy. I just learn that yesterday when I was watching some program on politics.

Even if it is there in the ground. They should keep their hands of of it. It belongs to the Afghan people. What do they need it for anyway... They are just blowing it up anyway.

Like with New years eve or Independence day. You will by a truck load of fireworks with an even bigger truck load of money. ( In their case money that does not really exist but when they do use it, it could be spend on various and better things ) Well you set the stuff on fire it blows. Some can't wait for next year. Others realize...:
What's the use ? It is gone now. Why do I act so stupid ? What a waste !

Kucinich caved in because he realizes, like Stalin, that the path to totalitarian control over the healthcare system is in incremental steps.

He wants government to have total control over it, and he sees the Obamacare bill as being so fundamentally corrosive to the healthcare system that eventually government will be forced to step in and nationalize it.

That's why he's on board with it.

Sanders is an outright socialist, he wants totalitarian control over everything.

Like the other do-gooders, he feels it is his duty to ensure he has total control over everything, including the Fed.

This is the motivator behind Grayson's support of the Fed audit.

Sanders is however at least honest about his intentions to setup a totalitarian class based oligarchy rather than pretending, so I have to give him credit for his honesty.

You may be right....or not....but a good point nonetheless. Regardless, the majority of the population, at least by polls, were in favor of a public option.

There is no competition on health insurance right now. Opening up state to state competition would only make the biggest health insurers even larger as they would wipe out what is left of the little guys.

In the least, anti-trust laws should have been enforced IMO. The more companies there are offering insurance, the lower costs will be because of competition. When a company becomes to large...it needs to be broken up. They become to powerful and become monopolistic.

We desperately need to enforce anti-trust laws.....i will state it all day every day. Nothing is every going to change unless we do so.

Government will forever be tainted and corrupt until we get out big money interests. We need to give power back to the people.

Yes, he is a declared Socialist, the only one in government I know of, but he doesn't want totalitarian control over everything.

He wants things how they used to be. Back when the middle class was strong...when this country was strong.

He's not trying to destroy the country mnemeth. Can't you see people are hurting?

He speaks against the oligarchy we currently have. I've heard it myself. Have you ever bothered to listen to the man?

Every Friday, at 12:00 pm...he does a one hour town house meeting on the radio where he takes calls. He is incredibily honest.

Next week, take a listen to what he has to say. I'll give you the link. After you listen to him speak, tell me that he isn't fighting for the Little Guy.

www.thomhartmann.com...

Thom Hartmann, a progressive, is literally the only one who speaks AGAINST MASSIVE CORPORATIONS. I've listened to many radio hosts and television hosts...but damn HE'S THE ONLY ONE who speaks against CORPORATIONS. He will never get a show on corporate television because of what he speaks about.

i certainly don't agree with some of his positions, but he is dead right on TARIFFS and ANTI-TRUST LAWS.

As i stated....he's the ONLY ONE.

I urge you to take a listen. I don't believe in Totalitarianism or any of that other crazy nonsense. I just want was is best for this country.

Don't you?

Yeah, let's outlaw guns so that only criminals and criminal "peace officers" can have access while decent, law abiding citizens will be held hostage by both. Great. Yet another reason to not like Kucinich despite some not so nutty views on other stuff.

The last thing I heard about Sanders and the one time audit of the Fed is that it might fail entirely in Committee. I don't even think we're going to get a one time audit from the GAO now, it seems Dodd may not be buckling under pressure. It would appear that there are sentiments that Sanders sold out on the Bill that Grayson and Paul provided from the House.

Yes, I actually stated the same thing after Sanders dropped the amendment. I was pretty angry about it at the time. But he stated he would have never gotten the votes in the Senate to pass the bill...and he's right. He probably wouldn't have. They even did a vote after the fact supporting Ron Paul's bill and it failed. RP didn't hammer Sanders for it. He knows what is going on.

The Senate is FAR MORE CORRUPT than the house. Fewer members means more power...which means more influence from lobbyists....not to mention the fact they get to sit in office for 6 years.

The Senate is BAD.

The House is probably the least corrupt of the bunch just because of the fact there are more of them and they have to be re-elected every 2 years.

IF the Senate was full of good people...it would be an insanely good force for all of us...but it's not right now...it's full of bought off politicians on both sides of the aisle and they have been the stalwart behind any good legislation.

Remember...the house voted AGAINST the bailout bill...the Senate did NOT.

The house voted FOR a public option...the Senate did not.

The Senate SUCKS.

They are solely corrupted to international corporations and they don't give a FLYING F about you, me, and the average working man/woman.


I starred your post btw.
