I am a 58 year old mason. We ran out of work and the economy has me down. Next week I will loose my house and automobile which I onluy had ten more months before I own it. I work seven days a week when I work. I can rebuild homes and am a master mason that worked for others with no money such as the AMvets when they needed memorials for the veterans. I lost 60k that year. Now I cant get help from anyone. There is only a couple more months before my contracts begin again. I have three german sheppards I love and will not loose if I have to sleep in the forest. If anyone has an old rundown farmhouse please allow me to stay there, I will rebuild it my material, my money as it comes in. I also have a very nice woman to worry over and like me, she worries over the pups. Even to get through the winter would help. This economy is terrible, there is no reason masons cant work in the winter months. Please help if you can email is [email protected]

You are proof we need a real change.

Paul surging despite media bias

Presidential candidate Ron Paul has amassed the majority of delegates to the national convention in seven states and is projected to win two more soon. Establishment Republicans are getting nervous. Alaska, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, and Washington are in Congressman Paul's column. Maine and Nevada are also expected to be Paul states when they conclude their conventions.

At the same time, Dr. Paul continues to draw huge crowds around the country as the embedded video illustrates. While Paul is drawing huge, passionate crowds, the person that major media sources have dubbed the presumptive nominee, is drawing small crowds and is generating little enthusiasm.

This momentum and excitement is occurring despite an apparently coordinated attempt by major media outlets to ignore the Ron Paul Revolution. Perhaps this is one reason outlets like CNN are seeing their ratings tumble dramatically. CNN ratings hit a ten year low in April.

The stated preference of CNN is to be an independent-minded news station in contrast with FOX News and MSNBC, that have decided to cater to a right-leaning or left-leaning political audience. Given their abysmal performance, one would think CNN would be more open to the presidential candidate that has excellent support among political Independents. Paul's committed following would flock to CNN if there were favorable coverage there, or any coverage at all. Instead, the dwindling numbers of CNN viewers have to listen to Wolf Blitzer and the parade of talking heads at CNN telling them that Congressman Paul is irrelevant, despite what they are seeing elsewhere with their own eyes.

MSNBC is the Obama network and FOX is reluctantly starting to shill for Romney. Perhaps CNN could rise above the partisan fray and provide the choice of Independents some unbiased coverage. Potential viewers might notice.
