Yes, and I believe this is because the press, owned by big business fascists and club FED members are desperate to get the North American Union in place. The flood of illegals into this country served several purposes for the New World Order crooks.

First, it keeps citizens occupied while the crooks in Washington work their will in Congress and the White House. The press insists on making enraged American citizens look like racist swine, when all we are doing is slapping the hands that are reaching deep into our pockets. To tell us how many illegals the fascist FED has funded and protected would enrage us further.

Second, it pacifies the Mexican government, who expected to be able to shove its excess poor and uneducated population over into the states a lot earlier than 2010, the newest target date for the NAU.

Third, the flood of illegal aliens lowered wages across the board, making profit for the fascists and slapping down American workers who need a living wage. Fascists prefer to lower the standard of living, rather than allow workers to be 'uppity.' This is happening all over the world, so the power brokers have been busy little fascists for some time.

Subject: How many Zeros are in a Billion







How many zeros in a billion?




This is too true to be funny.

The next time you hear a politician use the
word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about
whether you want the 'politicians' spending
YOUR tax money.

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
but one advertising agency did a good job of
putting that figure into some perspective in
one of it's releases.

A.

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

B.



A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

C.







A billion hours ago our ancestors were
living in the Stone Age.

D.





A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

E.



A billion dollars ago was only





8 hours and 20 minutes,





at the rate our government





is spending it.







While this thought is still fresh in our brain...



let's take a look at New Orleans .....



It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.







Louisiana Senator,



Mary Landrieu



is presently asking Congress for



250 BILLION DOLLARS



to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...



what does it mean?

A.



Well ... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans



(every man, woman, and child)



you each get $516,528.

B.



Or ... if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.

C.



Or ... if you are a family of four...



your family gets $2,066,012.



Washington , D. C HELLO!



Are all your calculators broken??

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago...
and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.



We had absolutely no national debt...



We had the largest middle class in the world...



and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened?



Can you spell 'politicians!'

And I still have to

for English.

I hope this goes around the



USA



at least 100 times.

Oh, and I forgot another reason for this:

Bush wants to buy those homes now. What better way to control people than to own the very property they live on? These people with nationalized mortgages will soon will owe their soul to the company store. LOL!

Any nationalized mortgage puts the morgagee under the thumb of and at the mercy of big brother. Can't wait to see what kind of laws are passed to 'regulate' and 'oversee' such government ownership. Anyone who wants to protest the death of our constitution had better check to see who owns their mortgage first. The message inherent in such fascist actions is becoming quite clear.

Do you know what the government calls a person who "catches on" to what they are doing?

Paranoia is unjustified suspicion and mistrust of others. It's quite healthy and advisable to watch carefully what our 'government' is doing these days. Mistrust of our government is now pretty much the norm and justifiably so.

I agree with you and I think it is interesting how much trouble our government goes thru to educate our citizens and then at the same time spend much money to mis-inform them of actual facts that do affect their lives and hard earned money.

Mortgage-backed securities are like boxes of chocolates. Criminals on Wall Street steal chocolates from the boxes and replace them with t*rds. Their criminal buddies at Standard & Poor rate these boxes AAA Investment -Grade chocolates. These boxes are then sold all over the world to investors. Eventually, somebody bites into a t*rd and discovers the crime. Suddenly, nobody trusts American chocolates anymore worldwide.

Hank Paulson now wants the American taxpayers to buy and hold all these t*rd-infested boxes for $700 billion dollars until the t*rd market returns to normal. Meanwhile, Hank's buddies, the Wall Street criminals who stole all the good chocolates, are not being investigated, arrested, or indited.

Mama always said: "Sniff the chocolates first, Forrest".

Why do we need prisons if all the bad people are in politics?

I didn't say I agree with it. In fact, I'm old enough to know that the market, if left alone, will be fine. This bail out also will not bankrupt America. Its' actually much smaller than anticipated - Thank God!

Neither major party candidate will respond to questions regarding impeachment(s) or charges and investigations against any in office whom have CLEARLY broken the laws of our land.

I've always gone 3rd party. Check out Ralph Nader. I have admired his patriotic interpetation of the constitution since my corporate law classes 30 years ago, although the brick (make out of money) walls he keeps hitting made me decide NOT to go to law school or consider a career in politics.

Certainly, and most unfortunately, my incumbant congressional reps are all war mongers (government contract profiteers), although there are a few who want impeachment, want us out of Iraq, and did not want this bailout as written (written so a $500m weekend spa retreat could still be taken?); mine aren't among them. And I'm not happy with their responses to my requests for impeachment (too expensive, since 3 years ago?, I told them it would be more expensive to KEEP HIM IN OFFICE!). To end the Iraq war (can you believe this one, from a supposed Patriot working for U.S. citizens?) "The Iraqi people need the real progress we are making there." No thought or concern about U.S. taxpayers, much less lives!

I repeat at the grocury, gas station, every local place I go, LET'S VOTE THEM ALL OUT!

But, it that doesn't work, I'm up for clanging pans in the street Nov. 5, like someone mentioned they do in South America when unhappy with the government.
I mean, I've been hearing an awful lot about vote fraud cases and Diebold machines and Ohio, Florida, Michigan and....
And I don't know how line item veto never got passed, because EVERYONE I talked to voted for it...

I find this useful. The Federalist papers are of particular interest, often debating particulars of the Constitution and Rights.

Many years ago, while I was still in prelaw, I was approached about a political career, but after questioning, was told I was a "constitutionalist" and there was no party for me. Figures.
