I'm going to put up a website with a list of links that, instead of allowing you to contact your so-called representative it shoots a .50 caliber bullet at their office.  Enough presses of the button and eventually one of them will hit their target.  I just need some assistance in mounting the rifle from a high vantage point in DC.  Perhaps the Washington memorial?

Translation: please stop suggesting we go to websites to "tell our lawmakers what we think".  Can you suggest something even more useless and time-wasting, please?  I don't think I'm annoyed enough.

I am Chumbawamba.

Am I the only person who finds it ironic that a broadly anti-government website is posting an article calling for our beloved POTUS to engage in our lives more?

It seems to me that the longer O'Scama, Congressmen and Senators spend off the job, the better it will be for the rest of us.

Maybe the catchy title was a sticking point, and the article was deformed because of it. Complaining about idle presidents is fun (extended Bush vacations in Crawford, anyone?), but the implication that they should be working more cannot be avoided.

Best article on this site I have read in a while.

"A few bankers and senior politicians who are too scared to let a corrective process take place?"     says it all....we need a managed cleansing or it will be a catastrophic. Or a looooooonnnng painful time of real growth stagnation.

interesting.  that was the one question that got me wound up because it didn't say enough.  the bankers aren't scared at all.  yes, they have the most to lose because they lent money they didn't have and they stand to lose it all if free market forces were allowed to commence without government bailouts.  the fact is they have the politicians "scared", but more importantly, they have them in their collective pocket.

From his crappy books you can glean that he considers himself a post-colonial revolutionary Marxist, which puts him even to the left of true neocons. True to his roots, he apparently likes wars just as much.

"Look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you." Warren Buffet.  Obama's what a lot of my younger friends call a "divorce kid."  Deferential to authority but often passive aggressive, goes along to get along, looks out for number one but pragmatic, using the shades of gray to avoid black or white decisions.

Anyone can grow up to be this way, but America's raised two generations of them now... he's their president.

Guys leave obama alone. Im sure him and the Bernank are discussing (via facetime on his new iPad 2) how to fix this mess.

I don't think he's talking to the Bernank, they probably despise each other. No, Obama playing golf in S. America just gives me further proof that Obama is just another figure head dancing to the music written by composers that were of the same ilk as those composing Nero's ditty.

 If Obama had anything to say or do about anything, he'd be far more engaged with what's going on. Why shouldn't he go play golf or whatever else? He has nothing to do with government, other than being a lightning rod. How sad, and how sad to know that so  many good folks still believe the whole 'change you can believe in' bullshit.

 No, those of you who haven't figured out the scam yet: We got fooled again! How many more times will you go to the polls thinking this time your man will come through for you??? Hahahahaha

Who is OBAMA ?   I'll tell you who he is !   He's a damn C.I.A. guy & his mother & father were C.I.A. assets !   That's who he is !    He's an agent of JPMORGANCHASE & JAMIE DIMON is his boss !    We are being taken over by damn bankers !   ........ calling for revolution, please !   I can't do this alone !  .......... the other night at dinner I said these same things to my dinner companions & they rolled in the aisle with laughter at me !    I sat at the dinner table stunned by the stupidity.    ....... unless someone out there in ZEROHEDGE LAND would like to set me straight ..... I'm glad for the education.

I am actually starting to believe this conspiracy...

Want to know why Turbo-Timmy was hired and never fired?

His father, Peter F. Geithner, was the director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation in New York in the 1990s. During the early 1980s, Peter Geithner oversaw the Ford Foundation's microfinance programs in Indonesia being developed by Ann Dunham Soetoro, President Barack Obama's mother, and they met in person at least once.

So yes, Barry Soetoro is his real name. He is at the very least a Dual-Citizen, which I believe he was only able to acquire based upon CIA/Intergovernmental ops he and his mother did for the Government.

Lynny, best way you can do that is to refuse to go into debt for anything.  Do not buy anything on credit.  That is the lifeblood of the banks.  And when you refuse to go into debt, you will accelerate the natural end of any fiat system that issues credit at interest.

Best thing you can do, and it will not put you on any list!
