reply to post by silent thunder
Oh, where to start... How about with the errors? In the last line of the cut and paste quote from the Post Chronicle the Prez's words are;
Obama: ...that's now how our democracy functions.
However, Silent Thunder should have verified and corrected the typo as he/she cut and pasted it here to reflect what the President actually said.
Obama: ...that's not how our democracy functions.
Suddenly the whole thing sounds a little better. It doesn't sound great; it is still a crooked politician from Illinois pandering for re-election,
but we saw that in his last campaign so we should expect nothing more from him this time around. I was raised in Illinois and I know that I and my
fellow Illinoisans have been waiting for a straight politician to show up for about 50 years now. And we are still waiting.
Second, my jury is still out on this La Raza thing, and I will tell you why. I speak enough Spanish to get by and to make friends, which I do.
Though it is not the first question out of my mouth eventually I will ask my friend what they know about La Raza. Without exception they say the same
thing; they have never heard of it. What does this mean? Are they all lying because they are part of an elaborate conspiracy to retake the southwest
of our country? Yeah... I don't know about all that. The mothers and fathers I talk to out there just want to make some money, live better than
they could South of the border, and raise their kids.
I know there are those out there who are smuggling people and drugs into this country, but I do not make friends with Latinos of that mind set. And
anyway the CIA is smuggling guns and drugs across the border too. And they are doing it on our dime and with Govt. planes and insulation so I have to
prioritize my anger at the larger villain first.
So maybe La Raza is the racist organization plotting the overthrow of part or all of our country just as Alex Jones says, and that the average Latinos
are their mindless minions, but I do not see that at all. If La Raza is guilty of this mindset it came from another direction than the average
Latino. What that direction is, I do not know. But I do know that everyone I habla with about is either completely unaware of La Raza, or they are
all lying together.
I clicked on the link and watched the full video, and I was not nearly as horrified as most people here, however I do have some issues with it.
First, this is a speech intended to create more pressure on Congress to go along with his Wall Street masterminded plan to raise the debt ceiling once
again, thereby decreasing our spending power even more and move us not out of the recession, but deeper into it. Since Obama's inauguration his
answer to the economic crisis has been to repeat again and again the same mistakes that got us into this mess in the first place, namely the printing
of vast amounts of unsecured fiat currency.
This is not to say that the Republicans who are blocking this round of printing press financing are the good guys since most of them thought this was
a wonderful thing to do under the Bush regime, but now that we have a different Potentate it is suddenly unacceptable. While the Republicans and
Democrats are busy switching sides in this never-ending game of good cop/bad cop, investigative journalist Greg Palast pointed out in one of his
latest posts on his website that Argentina defaulted on their debt and thrived.
Hmm... I wonder why neither the Republicans or the Democrats or the major media has mentioned this option to us. Could it be that it would make the
bankers angry? Make the Federal Reserve angry? Where do these guys allegiances lie, and whom are they sworn to protect?
Finally, I would like you to compare the video in question with a recent one from Ron Paul. The comparison is so dramatic it speaks for itself.
(Note; I am new to this site, and posting a video is different here than it was on my website, which is now hosed from a layout mistake. And today I
have devoted to gathering firewood for the winter. I will get the "hang" of it soon but for now a link will have to do)
(I hope I have not broken any rules here.)
