Just a note to say that I’m having some serious computer problems so will have to take the computer into the shop tomorrow, or sometime this week.
Have had too many crashes lately and also Firefox and Outlook Express (email program) keep locking up and I have to reboot.
Of course, I won’t be able to post depending on when the computer gets fixed.

Take a look at the document for yourself.

The man in charge of the government that both permitted and abetted the heinous corporate crime (“Drill, baby, drill!”) should, by all rights, be in terminal disgrace. Instead, much of Obama’s “base” behaves as if the First Black President is an innocent party – a victim of circumstances – rather than a facilitator of the corporate enterprise that has spawned the Mother of all Pollutions. — Glenn Ford of Black Agenda Report
I am in New Orleans at a People’s Emergency Response to the cataclysm in the Gulf. It would be nice if the elitists in the world felt like this was an EMERGENCY, but it’s obvious that the crisis plays into the hands of the globalists and the devastation does not bother them at all except for how this will affect them politically.
