Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
Is it Real or is it Memorex?

President Obama gives a warm welcome to all who cross our borders, from “Ellis Island or came here on slave ships or came across the Rio Grande,” but he failed to disclose those from Kenya? The excerpt below is from Real Clear Politics and it says what he said in a recent campaign in raising dollars for his re-election???

"No matter who you are. No matter where you can came from. No matter what you look like. No matter whether your ancestors landed here on Ellis Island or came here on slave ships or came across the Rio Grande, we are all connected. We will rise and fall together. That's the vision of America I've got, that's the idea of the heart of America," President Obama said at a fundraiser in San Francisco. "That's the idea of the heart of our campaign," Obama added.

The problem here is, after our “Deep Throat,” found the birth certificate a Fake; real snap-shot proof it's a phony baloney Forgery, this link was found from his Home Town Paper, the Sunday Standard. Now I know you can or at least use to be able to go to the fair and purchase a fake newspaper with your name in it. Maybe that is the case but after our finding out that Obama's birth certificate was a fake, it kind of makes you wonder; is it or is it not? I think I'll email the paper and just see what they have to say about this link. Watch how fast that Sunday Standard link disappears; I wonder why that might happen and to whom would do such?

PROOF: the Birth Certificate is a FORGERY

PROOF OF FORGERY!



No race-bait here, just pure unadulterated facts, that if President Obama's Birth Certificate is real, why was or were there no signs of flattening in its form on the produced document in question. The birth certificate produced, thanks to Donald Trump in his demanding there of, is proof of forgery, thanks not to the usual antonymous tip from a reliable source but from an expert who has over twenty-five years in working with Adobe and Acrobat files. His company has produced over 40 books on the subject, to which he has penned enough information on “How To” with such software, “I could have done a much better replica myself, if the President had asked. The guy that did this is a bimbo in that he forgot to “Flatten” his works to soften the background edges so the fake letters blended, softly into the green paper.”




A true Tea Party believer, Gary Poyssick, as I, to which there is no prejudice with in either of us, as the only thing I am prejudice about is ignorance and trying to “Dupe” the public is pretty low, on my standard scale. Mr. Poyssick, my Publisher, The Online Fisherman, stands firmly behind his beliefs, as I do, that the certificate is a phony and through careful analysis, of the layers of this document in question; the pretty green paper, with overtones of a treasonous act; trying to fool the American People, is an outwardly blatant lie. Mr. Poyssick is even prepared to go to court, if necessary, in proving this document, President Obama Birth Certificate, is a true, on its own standing, a proof of a forgery! In Gary's words again, an “Absolute, Oprah-proof
proof
.”




Teamed up with, another reliable source, who wishes to remain unmentioned, unless needed in court, an expert in the field of working with “Halo” imagines and scan flat pixel imagery software, the two forensic imaging experts slowly started dissecting the Presidents “Original Birth Certificate”.

Seventeen layers to this puzzle, to which who ever did the handy work, was good but not good enough. The world's jails are full of those who felt it was the perfect crime, but if it was so perfect, why are they incarcerated? Whom ever did this almost a masterpiece, could not have expected another of higher caliber to look at it in a glance to notice, something was wrong. The "Layering" and "Feathering" were done to a perfection but the "Flattening" process was missing; the give away. Without any forethought that it was a fake, at a closer look he could see that it was a true fake!

Upon dismantling the document, Gary found a number of flaws because the document in question appeared not to be melded together and it was a layered document; a technology that has only been around for about 5 years, so how could the Birth Certificate be real? Opening the primary layer, he found more layers, “Grouped” and “Clipped” layers. He then began taking apart the document in question. Using the same software in creating this fake, Gary turned off the Clipped Group Images and what should have been ink, disappears from the paper and instead one sees fathom images, the white stuff. There is no white on a green parchment paper, no mater how much one could erase from the paper, it is green through and through. It is not like it was a green piece of paper glued to a white one?

This shows that the images of the document are a digital forgery because the software used in producing this document, did not exist when the man was born. Something is amiss here and who is Barrack Hussein Obama? The best for last, with a twisting of our tools, to uncover the truth.

The total truth of the falsity of the birth certificate, provided to us is that the ink on the paper, does not cause white to appear around the text itself and the bitmapped pixels surrounding the unnatural white spots, on what was green paper, are not the flow of natural ink; not to mention why is it white instead of green, the color of the paper? If the document had been “Flattened” in the first place, Gary Poyssick would probably had never noticed but he did and to get a better understanding of the Proof the Birth Certificate is a Forgery, please read Gary Poyssick's piece, in laymen terms, so as you all can too see how the Commander in Chief of the United States of America, has tried to give us all a Micky.



Proof the Birth Certificate is a Forgery

I, Gary Poyssick, have been involved with digital imagery since prior to Adobe – the developers of Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Acrobat, and many other digital imaging and communications applications for more than 25 years, and was co-author of the second title on Adobe Press, a book called Workflow Re-engineering. I am considered an expert in the field.
The following discussion concerns a supposed copy of President Barack Obama's birth certificate – the so-called “Long Form” he indicated was provided by the State of Hawaii. I personally downloaded the PDF file from http://www.nctimes.com/pdf_3b9de6e8-7127-11e0-9b7d-001cc4c03286.html.
When downloaded and viewed in a browser, the document appears fine.


Since the 1980's, Adobe has provided the communications world a “universal” file form known as Acrobat Portable Document Format, or PDF. The document provided was in PDF format. Acrobat PDF format can be opened and edited by many other programs, including illustration and imaging programs such as Adobe's Illustrator and Adobe's Photoshop programs. It is the opinion of the author that both applications were utilized in the creation of the document in question.

Layers

The first evidence that the document is not a scan of an original document – or more accurately is a digital composition of actual older birth certificates from the State of Hawaii, but not the one it appears to be at first glance – is the existence in the PDF document of Layers.
Layers are best imagined as a clear piece of plastic – acetate to be exact – that is laid on one “page” to place a different object above the original (bottom) image/layer. Here we can see a gray piece of paper. The outside marks are called “Crop Marks” and represent the cuts to be made resulting in the final page size. Most print jobs are printed originally on larger pieces of paper, and cut to their final size.

The bottom “layer” in our example; a dark gray piece of paper. The marks on the outside are for the final “trims” or “cuts” resulting in the final page size.

Now let's imagine another piece of material. This one is clear plastic. But on the clear plastic is a colored circle. We want to place the colored circle on top of the gray paper. The paper is “Layer 1”, and the clear plastic carrying the colored circle is “Layer 2”.


To produce a finished gray page with a pink circle on it, we put Layer 2 on top of Layer 1. The finished piece appears to be a gray page with a pink circle printed on it, but in fact is two pieces of paper.


To “soften” the edges of the hard pink circle, I might “Feather” the edges. This technique is commonly used to merge two-or-more originals together – to give the impression that one image was the sole source of the visual. It is a common practice.


The result of the “Feathering” technique is a soft edge – where one color slowly shifts hue levels until it turns into the background gray (in this case; the hue-shift is dependent on the original pixel content values).


Layers in a Scanned Document

When a document is scanned, it does not create layers. Layers are created – can only be created – in one of two ways:
1. With acetate – clear plastic layered by hand
2. Digitally: Layers are commonly used in the creation of digital imagery.

A scanner creates a “Bitmap” image. A bitmap image is essentially a one-dimensional grid. It is measured in pixels, and a scanned image is typically broken into grids ranging from 150 pixels-per-inch to as much as 300 pixels-per-inch, depending on the finished product. Images scanned for high-resolution color magazines require a higher resolution than faxes, for example. Grayscale images require less data space than color images, which also has an impact on the resolution.

But resolution defines the quality of the scan. It does not add dimensionality to the document. Layers are multiple pages laid on top of each other. An analogy would be a scan of a man with a hat. You could not take the hat off the man without editing the actual pixels; the hair isn't actually underneath the scanned hat. You could theoretically take hair from another image and layer it on top of an original (with the hat) image, but the original pixels do not contain the hair. It's just not there.

Layers exist in the Obama Birth Certificate

The scanned Birth Certificate for President Obama has more than one dimension. It could not have been produced as is by a scanner. In this image – when first opened in Adobe Illustrator, the PDF document shows a layer called “Layer 1”)


The Document has been Digitally Altered


When Layer 1 is opened, it reveals a number of “Sub Layers”. Each of them contains an individual component that shows in the final document. An actual scanned document cannot contain such sublayers. They cannot be produced on any existing scanner technology, since scanners are one-dimensional; they can't scan underneath the document on the glass. An equivalent technology would allow you to lay a pile of twelve documents on a single stack on your scanner, and the resultant document would be in one file with each page transparent on top of each other. As layers. To produce the document that I downloaded, some number of originals were combined digitally.


Turning off the layers are revealing some (little) original ink

Each “sub layer” displays an “Eye” icon on the left. Turning off the layers on the document reveals alterations to the originally scanned document (which I feel was another birth certificate) resulting in white spaces where letters are either (now) replaced, or not replaced.


Upon closer examination (increased “Zoom” levels), it becomes appearant that an original document was used; some of the letters remain. There aren't many, but you can see from their softened edges that they are the original ink. Ink pressed on paper makes a soft edge; not a sharp, jagged, or “bitmapped” edge as you'll see in additional images below.

Turning off the sublayers results in blank holes showing. These holes are evident of the softening technique called “Feathering” and another called “Clipping Masks” – where one shape is used to create a shape that erases, or hides, or deletes the pixels in lower layers. Here we can see an original (If, blank space, more blank space, and an 'h'. The vertical height of the 'h' is identical to the horizontal line in the 'f' to the left.

When the appropriate sub-layer is turned on (the Eye icon is activated), some letters appear where before there was soft white space. If the paper was originally green, and a typewriter key was struck, the physical impact of the character on the paper would not delete or eliminate or soften the hole in the green paper. The paper wasn't colored green; it's colored stock. Or appears to be. It it's not a forgery, and has never been altered digitally, where is the white paper coming from?


Soft letters are original, hard letters are digital.

Notice that the black ink – which appears only when the unnatural layer is activated – is hard-edged. Typewriters don't produce bitmapped type like this. It appears to have been scanned, and dropped into this document. The edges are caused by poor use of resolution. A real expert would have created a much better forgery. I would have.





Conclusion

The document is a forgery. It was created from some number – more than one – original birth certificates from Hawaii. In an attempt to hide the fact that it was digitally created, old letters from a typed document were found and placed on top of the original scanned document.

The original document was a birth certificate.

Scanners are incapable of producing “layers”

Layers can only be produced manually (with acetate) or digitally.

The document contains layers.

The layers contain letters that together display what should be a single page

The document was created digitally

A process known as “Flattening”, which would have eliminated the layers and made them much more acceptable as an original, was failed to be executed.

Typewriters do not erase originally green paper leaving white “halos” as exhibited in the document

We need to restore constitutional government in America. Coming together in the blessing of liberty and about our nation's founding principles. We need leaders who understand the principles of limited government that made the United States so prosperous, not over burdening Czars, Councils and Federal rules to which bid the State to do it or else. Why the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are the greatest charters of human liberty ever written, and are responsible for America quickly becoming the freest, most prosperous nation in human history; but not through lies can this happen as we must build our nation on the truths of life and learn from our mistakes.

17 executive orders; What Good is Congress?




When the President signed into law the $38 billion in budget cuts, that the House and Senate approved earlier in the week week, Obama said that there were “certain provisions of the bill that he would not abide by” and this is evident by his abuse of the Executive Order. We are definitely living under an elected monarch. “The Founders intended for the legislative branch of Congress, composed of both the House and Senate, to be the dominant branch of the federal government. Today the executive branch, has become, by far, the dominant branch of government, even to the point that it is the main threat to the liberty and freedom of American citizens." ..Honorable John V. Denson, a Circuit Court judge from Alabama. We the People, “the Defenders of liberty” have much to worry about, as the President wields his sword of Executive Orders and gives bureaucrats, much as like NOAA in its abuse of Magnuson-Stevens to exercise powers that are solely reserved to Congress, the states, or the people themselves. We no longer live under the Constitution and its three branches of government but are adhering to the administrative law of an administrative state, a de facto fourth branch of government. I did not sign up for such, did you? It is the essence of tyranny, all under the control of the president giving President Obama the power to change policy through an Administrative Order of his choice in impacting state laws across the country. Much again, akin to the NMFS and its Councils changing fishing laws across the lands just because they can under their Czar, Dr. Jane Lubchenco, who too has an open purse, TOTAL DISCRETIONARY SPENDING FOR NOAA:$109,015,000.00 when the Country is trying to trim down? President Obama has stated that his administration planing is enacting a massive regulatory "reform,” which creates a lending fund to provide loans for multiple purposes and if Congress fails to recognize or pass anything requested; via Executive Orders and Administrative Directives, allowed by the President will prevail! Nero to used his “administration planing” and Executive Orders in a Scorched Earth Policy, too but it did little for Rome except help in its fall!

Kings to Monarchs, used to appoint governors to see out their agendas. Hail Barackos Obamanos, Keeper of the Realm and a God to himself. Seems that way, does it not. What Constitution, what Bill of Rights, and God? Czars are regarded by the mainstream press as seemingly all-knowing experts who are above our traditional constitutional restraints and to this I say Bullocks! I believe in one God, the Lord Almighty. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, I believe in the Red, White and Blue, our Glorious Flag. Love of Country, Family, Duty, honor and in helping out my fellow Americans now matter to what your beliefs, as Americans believe in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, the powers of Congress and the Fourth of July! Executive Orders be damned and do it the way our Founding Fathers set it up. Play by the rules or get out of the game! In the words of Democrat Senator Robert Byrd “"The rapid and easy accumulation of power by White House staff can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances.... At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials." As once famously said, "Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely!" The president can accomplish with a swipe of the pen what used to take an act of Congress and this is a scarey thought; “...with the stroke of a pen today, Congress was abolished by Executive Order.” Hm, wonder if our Lord Protector Obamanos has thought of that yet? Right now, Washington is buzzing with the rumors that Obama is planning to circumvent Congress enacting AMNESTY for ALL illegal aliens in the United States via Executive Orders and Administrative Directives, allowed by the President! This is the White Houses goal is to make Congress irrelevant by circumventing the Constitution. The practical effect of this trend is that America will increasingly have an elective dictatorship if citizens don't insist upon a return to a strict adherence to the U.S. Constitution. If we the American people, our local leaders, main-stream media and Congress do not wake up from Obama's entrancing powers, his presidential powers will be indistinguishable from what started it all in the first place, in which 13 Colonies rebelled in provoking the 1776 Declaration of Independence. Think about it? I'll be detained as a revolutionary because I am bulking his system and an an Exploratory Candidate for the US Senate 2012. Your phones and wireless devices can be tapped and listen to, at random and detain people indefinitely as "enemy combatants," denying them the right of Habitues Corpus (to challenge your detention in court). Are these really powers we want one President to have?
“What Happened to our “Checks & Balances?” President Obama has now signed into order some 17 Executive Orders; What good is Congress and what to do about it. First if it is unconstitutional, to why are we following like lambs to the slaughter? That is why I am looking into running, becoming part of a solution, not more of a problem! I wish to restore our constitutional liberty back to the "land of the free" and we as The People need to strip the President of powers he was never intended to have; Executive Orders. Obama’s Care Of Self is out as I believe in a country not being held hostage as Our States are being held up by the Executive in Order, so as to receive its Federal funding. Who is that man behind the mask? Obama's control now accompanies federal funding, through his Czars, and now if state governments are in need or are dependent of federal funding, they have to march to the beat of the president's drum! Do You want 4 more? Congress needs to roll up their sleeves and cut these ORDERS off, to those they can legally do so with. As to our President in Chief, thank God he is up for reelection and could be defeated as our country moves on licking its wounds from his abuse of the Executive Order. Principles before Party, Personality, and Profit, with Deeds not Words. A sound and good bases to run a country as without the Principles, we all are but cavemen roaming the countryside in pursuit of the unknown. I believe in you America. I believe we will awaken and set it right but it needs to be now and I cannot do it alone; So will you not donate and help us grow to a stronger Florida. Which, in turn will turn our nation into a stronger country, with Florida leading the way. Florida Matters to me as you do too. I FISH! I VOTE! I CAN!

"Look at your past. Your past has determined where you are at this moment. What you do today will determine where you are tomorrow. Are you moving forward or standing still?" -- Tom Hopkins

Did you know that the federal debt has climbed by $8.3 trillion, in just 10 years! I am tired of all the rhetoric, blame shifting and everybody afraid to make a decision. Somebody needs to take the lead, as our Country does not play second fiddle to anyone and Florida, should not expect less. Through the words of the Party Chairman, Paul Grant Truesdell, there are Ten simple words to live by, to which, it just may, once again, save our Country;

Principals before Party, Personality and Profit with Deeds, not words.

There are many a good man and women in both the Republican and Democratic Parties but they are few and divided at best. We need a Party that will bond the nation into one of healing and to those Modern Tories, who cannot make up their minds; send them packing. The Country depends on it, our State depends on it and we too depend on it. Our nation, to which I thee do pledge allegiance, to my Flag, one nation, under God and indivisible by all!

Outdoors Advocate Against NOAA, EDF & PEW with their involvement in Catch Shares, and editor of The Online Fisherman made History today, as I announced my wish to become a Exploratory Candidate U.S. Senate, for the Florida Whigs Party. I made history, with this announcement that an exploratory committee has been formed, as Gary A Anderson becomes the first Whig, to test the waters for the U.S. Senate since the 1800s.

Fighting for a free America! Florida Matters to me! I Fish, I vote,

“I CAN!”

“Unless we vote someone in with a heart of the people, by the people and for the people; returning to the day where the people ruled the government, rather than the government ruling the people, all things are just going to get worse. It is coming to the point that when the people are asked about their government all they can do is shake and hang their head in shame. You need to stand up and shout yes I CAN! You can make a difference, one vote, one initiative, one stand, to replace those to whom are along for the ride, to doing nothing for the people.” ...Gary A.

SUPPORT HB- 45 -- Stop local governments from violating state law.

ALERT
** ROUND 26 **
STOP Local Governments from Violating Preemption in Florida


DATE: April 21, 2011
TO: USF & NRA Members and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

House Bill 45, introduced by state Representative Matt Gaetz (R-4), has been scheduled to be on the Special Order Calendar to be heard on the HOUSE FLOOR, next Tuesday, April 26.

HB 45 would simply provide penalties for government officials, local governments and agencies that willfully and knowingly violate the state firearms preemption law. State law prohibits local governments and government agencies from adopting any gun control ordinances or regulations. There are some who are arrogantly violating the law because there are no penalties currently in the law.

HB 45 is a bill to STOP local politicians and governments from violating state law by providing penalties for willful violations.

You must act quickly.
URGENT!
The FULL HOUSE Must Hear From You!

PLEASE IMMEDIATELY E-MAIL Members of the House!

In the subject line put:

SUPPORT HB- 45 -- Stop local governments from violating state law.

BACKGROUND and WHY HB 45 IS NEEDED

In 1987, the Florida Legislature passed a firearms preemption statute (f.s.790.33) to provide uniformity of gun laws -- in fact, it is called the "Joe Carlucci Uniform Firearms Act."

It was intended to stop local governments from making criminals out of law-abiding citizens just because they simply crossed a city limit or county line. It was intended to provide uniform gun laws so that no matter where in the state you live and no matter where in the state you travel, the same gun laws apply.

Unfortunately, the law contains no penalties for violations because no one ever imagined that local elected officials and government workers would willfully and knowingly violate state law.

The absence of penalties has lead to many intentional violations and has resulted in subsequent lawsuits to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens.

Over and over again, NRA attorneys have written letters to local governments informing them that proposed ordinances violate state law. Unfortunately, when their lawyers confirm that the ordinance would be illegal, they usually also explain that there are no penalties for violating the law -- consequently, some jurisdictions have arrogantly thumbed their noses at state law and have passed illegal ordinances anyway.

In 2000, the City of South Miami was one of the cities that NRA lawyers wrote concerning a proposed ordinance that violated state law.

The City's external counsel confirmed that it was a violation, but also noted that there were no penalties. We were informed that city Commissioners were told that without penalties, they could do what they wanted to do. Further, an illegal ordinance would stand until the City was sued and a court declared the ordinance void.

The rights of law-abiding gun-owners were being violated, so NRA sued.

NRA won the lawsuit and, in fact, the appellate court even noted in its opinion that the court had previously ruled that local ordinances violate state law.

The court refused to award NRA attorney's fees. But nobody said the City couldn't use tax dollars to pay their own expenses and pay outside counsel to defend their illegal actions. That is egregious.

So, not only did they violate the rights of residents but then they used their tax dollars to pay the legal fees of those who intentionally did it.

It is not the NRA's responsibility to enforce state law, but nobody else will do it because there are no specified penalties.

A local attorney is currently suing Lee County for violating the state preemption law.

In the Lee County case, not only did state Representative Paige Kreegel tell them their ordinance was illegal, but then-Attorney General Bill McCollum also told them.

This has to stop!

HB 45 provides penalties for local officials, local governments and agencies that willfully and knowingly violate the preemption law. These penalties are severe to deter further violations.

It is clear that some jurisdictions are predisposed to violating the law in the absence of severe penalties. That's why the bill provides felony penalties for those who willfully and knowingly participate in the violation and up to a $5 million dollar fine for the offending entity.

Sound extreme? In 2004, the legislature passed legislation prohibiting any form of gun registration or the compiling of any lists of gun owners or guns. The penalties are identical to those in this bill; that's why they're in this one.

Gun registration schemes, lists and data bases that violated the law suddenly were destroyed. To our knowledge, there have been no intentional violations since that law passed. There have been no prosecutions under that law. It has been the ultimate deterrent. Anyone who has unintentionally violated the law has immediately taken action to come into compliance when notified.

This is not about putting people in jail or imposing big fines -- unless absolutely necessary. We just want local public officials, elected and otherwise, to quit violating the state law and stop trampling the rights of Florida’s law-abiding gun-owners.

A True Oxymoron; Other Mandatory Discretionary Funds: NOAA Files

TOTAL DISCRETIONARY SPENDING FOR NOAA:
$109,015,000.00 That is 190 million, 15 thousand Dollars of Your Money spent on items not really needed; that is why it is called, Discretionary Funds! I want to run for a Political Office. I am a Exploratory Candidate for the US Senate Florida. I Fish, I Vote. I CAN! We, together can put a stop to this out of control spending. Help me, help you put an end to unnecessary spending of your hard earned dollars. Please support my efforts in running as an Exploratory candidate and together we can stop this madness...

Editor's Note: "How, I ask, can anything be of a "Discretionary" act and yet considered Mandatory? Discretionary is an adjective, meaning:

1. having or using the ability to act or decide according to your own discretion or judgment; The commission has discretionary power to award extra funds; discretionary funds; discretionary income; discretionary; Moby Thesaurus II by Grady Ward, 1.0; discretionary;
2. not earmarked; available for use as needed. Aah? and

Mandatory as an adjective means to:

1. Be required by rule; in most schools physical education are compulsory; attendance is mandatory; required reading; mandatory; but as a noun

1. the recipient of a mandate
2. a territory surrendered by Turkey or Germany after World War I and put under the tutelage of some other European power until they are able to stand by themselves.

Two words of total opposite meaning, I'm right, it is a Oxymoron; leave it to NOAA to come up with this ignorant statement and they wonder why they cannot get their act together in shutting down fishing as we know it today; the leasing to private foundations and fleets in owning what is not theirs to own in the first place, our oceans to sea shores. Another Oxymoron, at its best! I think just a bunch of Greedy Moron's about sums it up. Also, no editing needed in this budget proposal; all misspellings to grammar at its best, is courtesy of Dr. Jane and her staff, up there at NOAA, in raping you of badly needed dollars we could be using in mending the US Budget to helping out the homeless!"


The Discretionary Social Fund and Money Management (DWP Research Report)



COASTAL ZONE MANAGEMENT FUND
The Coastal Zone Management Fund (CZMF) was established under the
Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-508). The CZMF consists
of loan repayments from the former Coastal Energy Impact Program.
Loans under this program were made prior to 1992, but balances were not
transferred to the General Fund in accordance with the Federal Credit Reform
Act of 1990 (FCRA), even though the account effectively serves as a liquidating
account. To resolve this inconsistency, the Budget proposes to cancel all
balances in the Coastal Zone Management Fund, make future payments to
the Fund subject to FCRA, and eliminate the annual transfer from this account
to the Operations, Research, and Facilities account.

COASTAL IMPACT ASSISTANCE FUND
Congress authorized the Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) in 2001
to assist states in mitigating the impacts from Outer Continental Shelf (OCS)
oil and gas production. Congress appropriated $150,000,000 in FY 2001
to seven coastal states: Alaska, California, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, and Florida, to implement this program. Funds were expended
according to Coastal Impact Assistance Plans developed by the states.
NOAA was charged with implementing this program at the federal level. FY
2001 was the only year NOAA received an appropriation for these activities;
however, NOAA continues to receive de-obligations from this grant program,
which are deposited in this account.

FISHERMEN’S CONTINGENCY FUND
The Fishermen’s Contingency Fund (FCF) program minimizes financial
losses of the fishing industry caused by competing uses of the Outer Continental
Shelf (OCS) and provides for timely resolution of claims by vessel
owners. The FCF is authorized under Section 402 of Title IV of the Outer
Continental Shelf Lands Act Amendments of 1978. NOAA compensates U.S.
commercial fishermen for damage or loss of fishing gear, vessels, and resulting
economic loss caused by obstructions related to oil and gas exploration,
development, and production in any area of the Outer Continental Shelf. The
funds used to provide this compensation are derived from fees collected by
the Secretary of the Interior from the holders of leases, exploration permits,
easements, or rights-of-way in areas of the Outer Continental Shelf. The
FCF account is funded solely through user fees. Disbursements can be
made only to the extent authorized in appropriation acts. In FY 2012 NMFS
requests budget authority of $350,000 for the payment of claims filed by
fisherman. These funds should be sufficient to cover the anticipated amount
of claims for FY 2012.

FOREIGN FISHING OBSERVER FUND
The Foreign Fishing Observer Fund (FFOF) is financed through fees collected from owners and operators
of foreign fishing vessels fishing within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the United States (such
fishing requires a permit issued under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management
Act). This includes longline vessels fishing in the Atlantic billfish and shark fishery and other foreign vessels
fishing in the EEZ. The fund is used by NOAA to pay salaries, administrative costs, data editing and
entry costs, and other costs incurred in placing observers aboard foreign fishing vessels. The observer
program is conducted primarily through contracts with the private sector. NOAA/NMFS places these
observers aboard foreign fishing vessels to monitor compliance with U.S. fishery laws and to collect fishery
management data. Amounts available in the fund can be disbursed only to the extent and in amounts
provided in appropriation acts. In FY 1985, Congress approved the establishment of a supplemental
observer program. The program provided that foreign vessels without federally-funded observers are
required to obtain the services of private contractors certified by the Secretary of Commerce. NOAA
does not anticipate foreign fishing in the U.S. EEZ requiring funds from this account. In FY 2012, NOAA
requests that $350,000 of the unobligated balance available be rescinded.

FISHERIES FINANCE PROGRAM ACCOUNT
The Fisheries Finance Program (FFP) Account is a national loan program that makes long-term fixed-rate
financing available to U.S. citizens who otherwise qualify for financing or refinancing of the construction,
reconstruction, reconditioning, and, in some cases, the purchasing of fishing vessels, shoreside processing,
aquaculture, and mariculture facilities, and the purchase of individual fishing quota (IFQ). The FFP
operates under the authority of Title XI of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, as amended (46 USC 53701);
Section 303(a) of the Sustainable Fisheries Act amendments to the Magnuson-Stevens Act; and, from
time to time FFP-specific legislation. NMFS requests no increase for the FFP because these loans have
a negative subsidy rate and no appropriated funds are required. However, specific loan ceilings for each
type of loan authority within the FFP must be included in appropriation language or other bill language
regardless of the need for cash appropriations. The FY 2012 budget proposal requests loan authority of
$24 million for IFQ loans and $59 million for FFP traditional loans as authorized by the Merchant Marine
Act. Three benefits will result from this action. First, the IFQ loan program is part of the Northwest Halibut
and Sablefish and the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Crab limited entry fisheries management program
that continues to stabilize these fisheries. This will also support the implementation of the crab IFQ loan
required by the management plan approved by the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council. Second,
FFP traditional lending is harvesting-capacity-neutral and supports qualified established U.S. seafood
companies operating in a sustainable fisheries environment. Last, FFP lending to marine aquaculture facilities
contributes to the development of a promising avenue of seafood production and greater economic
sustainability from U.S. ocean resources.


PROMOTE AND DEVELOP FISHERIES PRODUCTS

The American Fisheries Promotion Act (AFPA) of 1980 amended the Saltonstall-Kennedy (S-K) Act to
authorize a grants program for fisheries research and development projects to be carried out with S-K
funds. S-K funds are derived from a mandatory transfer from the Department of Agriculture to NOAA
from duties on imported fisheries products. An amount equal to 30% of these duties is made available to
NOAA and, subject to appropriation, is available to carry out the purposes of the AFPA. The S-K grants
program has provided substantial assistance to address impediments to the management, development,
and utilization of the Nation’s living marine resources. Each year a Federal Register notice is published announcing the program. The annual notice outlines priority areas, such as research on reduction/elimination of bycatch and aquaculture. The remainder of the S-K funds, which are transferred as discretionary funds, are used to offset the appropriation requirements of the Operations, Research, and Facilities account.

PACIFIC COASTAL SALMON RECOVERY FUND
The Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund (PCSRF) was established by Congress in FY 2000 to address
the listings of Pacific salmon and steelhead populations under the ESA and the impacts of the Pacific
Salmon Treaty Agreement between the United States and Canada. Under the PCSRF, NMFS manages a
program to provide funding to the states and tribes of the Pacific Coast region (Washington, Oregon, California,
Idaho, Nevada, and Alaska) to implement projects that restore and protect salmonid populations
and their habitats. Through FY 2010, over $880 million has been provided to nearly 9 thousand projects
throughout the region that have made important contributions to improve that status of ESA-listed salmonids,
preventing extinctions, and helping to protect currently healthy populations. In addition to the PCSRF
federal funds, states provide significant matching funds through their grant allocation processes. Furthermore,
the federal and state matching funds are supplemented by private and local contributions at
the project level, including additional funding, volunteer time, and other in-kind donations. The FY 2012
President’s Request includes $65,000,000 for this account.

MARINE MAMMAL UNUSUAL MORTALITY EVENT FUND
An unusual mortality event (UME) is defined under the Marine Mammal Protection Act as “a stranding that
is unexpected; involves a significant die-off of any marine mammal population; and demands immediate
response.” In recent years, increased efforts to examine carcasses and live stranded animals have improved
the knowledge of mortality rates and causes, allowing a better understanding of population threats
and stressors and the ability to determine when a situation is “unusual.” Understanding and investigating
marine mammal UMEs is important because they can serve as indicators of ocean health, giving insight
into larger environmental issues which may also have implications for human health and welfare.
Marine Mammal Protection Act Section 405 (16 USC 1421d) establishes the Marine Mammal Unusual
Mortality Event Fund. The fund: “shall be available only for use by the Secretary of Commerce, in consultation
with the Secretary of the Interior to compensate persons for special costs incurred in acting in
accordance with the contingency plan issued under section 1421c(b) of this title or under the direction of
an onsite coordinator for an unusual mortality event; for reimbursing any stranding network participant for
costs incurred in preparing and transporting tissues collected with respect to an unusual mortality event
for the Tissue Bank; and for care and maintenance of marine mammal seized under section 1374(c)(2)(D).”
According to the MMPA, deposits can be made into the fund by the following: “amounts appropriated
to the fund; other amounts appropriated to the Secretary with respect to unusual mortality events; and
amounts received by the United States in the form of gifts, devises, and bequests under subsection (d) of
this section.”

MEDICARE ELIGIBLE RETIREE HEALTH CARE FUND
The FY 2003 Department of Defense Authorization Act requires all uniformed services, including NOAA, to
participate in an accrual fund for Medicare-eligible retirees. Payments into this accrual fund will cover the
future health care benefits of present, active-duty NOAA officers and their dependents and annuitants.

OTHER DISCRETIONARY REIMBRUSABLE FUNDS

SANCTUARIES ENFORCEMENT ASSET FORFEITURE FUND

Sanctuaries Enforcement Asset Forfeiture Fund receives proceeds from civil
penalties and forfeiture claims against responsible parties, as determined
through court settlements or agreements, for violations of NOAA sanctuary
regulations. Penalties received are held in sanctuary site-specific accounts
from year to year as the funds are spent on resource protection within the
sanctuary site where the penalty or forfeiture occurred. Funds are expended
for resource protection purposes which may include all aspects of law enforcement
(from equipment to labor), community oriented policing programs,
and other resource protection and management measures such as the installation
of mooring buoys or restoration of injured resources.

FISHERIES ENFORCEMENT ASSET FORFEITURE FUND

Section 311(e)(1) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and
Management Act (MSA) authorizes the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary)
to pay certain enforcement-related expenses from fines, penalties and
forfeiture proceeds received for violations of the Magnuson-Stevens Act,
or of any other marine resource law enforced by the Secretary. Pursuant
to this authority, the NOAA has established a Civil Monetary Penalty/Asset
Forfeiture Fund (AFF). Certain fines, penalties and forfeiture proceeds received
by NOAA are deposited into this fund, and subsequently used to pay
for certain enforcement-related expenses. When Congress established the
AFF it was deemed appropriate to use these proceeds to offset in part the
costs of administering the enforcement program. Expenses such as: costs
directly related to the storage, maintenance, and care of seized fish, vessels,
or other property during a civil or criminal proceeding; reimbursement to
other federal or state agencies for enforcement related services provided
pursuant to an agreement entered into with the Secretary; and other limited
uses as outlined in NOAA’s Asset Forfeiture Fund policy. NMFS Office of
Law Enforcement (OLE) manages the AFF, which is used by OLE and NOAA
General Counsel for Enforcement and Litigation (GCEL) to pay for enforcement
activities. NOAA is proposing language in FY 2012 to create this fund
as described above.

PROMOTE AND DEVELOP AMERICAN FISHERY PRODUCTS & RESEARCH PERTAINING
TO AMERICAN FISHERIES FUND



The American Fisheries Promotion Act (AFPA) of 1980 amended the Saltonstall-
Kennedy (S-K) Act to authorize a grants program for fisheries research
and development projects to be carried out with S-K funds. S-K funds are
derived from a mandatory transfer from the Department of Agriculture to
NOAA from duties on imported fisheries products. An amount equal to 30%
of these duties is made available to NOAA and, subject to appropriation, is
available to carry out the purposes of the AFPA. The S-K grants program has
provided substantial assistance to address impediments to the management,
development, and utilization of the Nation’s living marine resources. Each
year a Federal Register notice is published announcing the program. The annual notice outlines priority areas, such as research on reduction/elimination of bycatch and aquaculture.
The remainder of the S-K funds, which are transferred as discretionary funds, are used to offset the
appropriation requirements of the Operations, Research, and Facilities account.

FISHERIES FINANCE PROGRAM ACCOUNT


The mandatory component of the Fisheries Finance Program Account (FFP) Account authority is subject
to the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (FCRA) (2 U.S.C. 661). The FCRA requires estimated loan costs
(FCRA cost) be appropriated in cash at the time Congress authorizes annual credit ceilings. FFP Account
loan activity demonstrates that the FCRA subsidy is negative. Statutory authority is found in 46 U.S.C.
1274 and 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. FFP Account lending guidelines are found at Title 50, Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR), Part 253, subpart B; and tempered by NOAA’s sustainable fisheries policy and by the
practical considerations of a program that has been self-sustaining throughout its credit history.

FEDERAL SHIP FINANCING FUND

This account manages the loan guarantee portfolio that existed prior to the enactment of the Federal
Credit Reform Act of 1990.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPROVEMENT & RESTORATION FUND

The Environmental Improvement & Restoration Fund (EIRF) was created by the Department of Interior and
Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 1998 for the purpose of carrying out marine research activities
in the North Pacific. These funds will provide grants to Federal, State, private or foreign organizations or
individuals to conduct research activities on or relating to the fisheries or marine ecosystems in the North
Pacific Ocean, Bering Sea, and Arctic Ocean.

LIMITED ACCESS SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION FUND

Under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Act Section 304(d)(2)(A), NMFS must collect a fee to recover
the incremental costs of management, data collection, and enforcement of Limited Access Privilege (LAP)
programs. Funds collected under this authority are deposited into the “Limited Access System Administrative
Fund” (LASAF). Fees shall not exceed three percent of the ex-vessel value of fish harvested under
any such program, and shall be collected at either the time of the landing, filing of a landing report, or
sale of such fish during a fishing season or in the last quarter of the calendar year in which the fish is harvested.
The LASAF shall be available, without appropriation or fiscal year limitation, only for the purposes
of administrating the central registry system; and administering and implementing the Magnuson-Stevens
Act in the fishery in which the fees were collected. Sums in the fund that are not currently needed for
these purposes shall be kept on deposit or invested in obligations of, or guaranteed by the U.S. Also, in
establishing a LAP program, a Regional Council can consider, and may provide, if appropriate, an auction
system or other program to collect royalties for the initial or any subsequent distribution of allocations. If an
auction system is developed, revenues from these royalties are deposited in the LASAF.

WESTERN PACIFIC SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES FUND

Section 204(e) of the 2006 amendments to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management
Act authorizes the establishment of the Western Pacific Sustainable Fisheries Fund . This fund
serves as a repository for any permit payments received by the Secretary of Commerce for foreign fishing
within the U.S. EEZ around Johnston Atoll, Kingman Reef, Palmyra Atoll, and Jarvis, Howland, Baker and Wake Islands, sometimes known as the Pacific Remote Island Areas (PRIA). Also, in the case of violations
by foreign vessels occurring in these areas, amounts received by the Secretary attributable to fines
and penalties shall be deposited into the fund. Foreign fishing is only allowed though a Pacific Insular
Area Fishery agreement. Before entering into such an Agreement, the Western Pacific Fishery Management
Council must develop a marine conservation plan that provides details on uses for any funds collected.
Marine Conservation Plans must also be developed by the Governors of the Territories of Guam
and American Samoa and of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and approved by the
Secretary of Commerce or designee. Additionally, any funds or contributions received in support of conservation
and management objectives under a marine conservation plan for any Pacific Insular Area other
than American Samoa, Guam, or the Northern Mariana Islands shall be deposited in this fund.

NOAA CORPS COMMISSIONED OFFICERS RETIREMENT

The retirement system for the uniformed services provides a measure of financial security after release
from active duty for service members and their survivors. It is an important factor in the choice of a career
in the uniformed services and is mandated by Federal statutes under Title 10, United States Code. NOAA
transfers retirement pay funds to the Coast Guard, which handles the payment function for retirees and
annuitants. Health care funds for non-Medicare-eligible retirees, dependents, and annuitants are transferred
to the U.S. Public Health Service, which administers the health care program.

Dr. Jane's Slips Up; “Catch Shares Voluntary!”

Crabby Jane; NOAA Chief Dr. Jane Lubchenco, HEAD OF FISHERIES!
NO FISHING PHOTO

NOAA Chief Dr. Jane Lubchenco said and she went out of her way to emphasize, that “catch shares are a voluntary choice, made by regional councils that include members from the industry.” According to a “Story from World Fishing Today,” where Dr. Jane stated that 1/5th of her $5.5 billion NOAA budget goes towards the fisheries. New additions, riders, were attached to the bipartisan bill, launched initially by Congressman Walter Jones, that would allow the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to continue spending on the controversial fishery subjects. These new earmarks were added by the the House and Senate Appropriations committees. The Catch Shares budget, 36 million dollars, was shut down, as of recent but it is a small fraction to the amount NOAA is planning on futures of this fishing game as NOAA is on dead reckoning towards commodities, the fish market, coupled with private foundations in buying, selling, leasing and trading "shares" of allocated catch limits (ACL) among themselves, corporations and outside investors. Smells to me of inside trading to me, but then what does this poor angler know? Thank God for Jim Donafrio, The RFA, the FRA, Dennis O'Hern,Gary Poyssick, The Online Fisherman, the comments to threads on The Online Fisherman, Florida Sportsman, 2 Cool Fishing, the Hull Truth, Congressman Walter Jones, countless others and U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a New Hampshire Republican, who stated, what is echoed everywhere, on Council meeting and Catch Shares, “that it has never been VOLUNTARILY, nor ever suggested.” I do not believe the courts even know it is a voluntary program and the onslaught of commodities being bought, sold, leased and traded on an inside market, to a privileged few. They do now!

Their Rose Colored Glasses & Florida Unemployment

Gary Anderson, has formed an exploratory committee for the purpose of seeking the Florida Whig Party nomination to the United States Senate

ACCORDING TO
The Economic Time Machine;
The Miami Herald> Business> Economy & Banking>

Jobs, Housing, Tourism, Trade, Commerce and Mood indicators in accessing our economy in Florida, to which all are in a poor state as compared to say, ten years ago. After a 2010 rebound in vacation spending, tourism landed near the early stages of its last boom: June 2005. Trade enjoys the strongest reading from the ETM: July 2008. That’s well past the start of the recession, and on the way to actual expansion — that is, clearing highs set during the boom years.
But busy ports and cargo handlers only take South Florida so far toward recovery. By the ETM’s calculation, it still has years to go.

“Of course again, these numbers did not take into account of the BP oil disaster and to how many tourist dollars were lost because we “might not” have clean beaches. Slanted slightly through rose colored glasses because it makes for a better read!”...Gary A. Anderson's opinion.

Unemployment barely budged, but job growth nearing pre-recession levels

Gov. Rick Scott broke precedent and announced Florida’s March job numbers himself Friday. As in South Florida, the state’s unemployment rate barely moved: from 11.5 percent to 11.1 percent. But it was still the first year-over-year drop since November 2006.
“Again, those glasses are on because unemployment numbers do not reflect actual numbers of those unemployed. If your benefits ran out, you are not qualified for or you did not work enough hours during the set quarters, wages are based upon or you were fired for reasons of disorderly conduct to theft, you can not collect. If you have been unemployed for a long time, are homeless or you have visa problems, you cannot collect; so there are thousands of out of work personnel on the streets that are not counted, so how can one say unemployment is up or down based upon lies to the public? Not too long ago, thousands of workers were laid off the unemployment system. As such, the indicators showed unemployment was down, all because all those people were kicked out of the system. So back to reality, in taking off those rose colored glasses, more were out of work, just not in their club anymore.”
Gary A. Anderson's Opinion.

Non-agricultural Employment in Florida 7,205,300 jobs in Mar 2011 “based on hires to paperwork turned in, so this number can reflect those not working “Under the Table. Where as the 'unemployment' rate, FL Unemployment Rate 11.1% in Mar 2011 as of 04/16/2011 “is based on that number of special people who belong to the club, not all the rest, to include our agriculture pickers and legal migrant workers. So Who do you believe when that eleven point one percent only represents but a few of the real mass of out of work to displaced workers. Fairy tales for those to whom wear the rose colored glasses. Do you think we need to change the system or just quit lying about the numbers? I am so sick of Government making it up as we go along or telling us just not the whole truth, in order to get a vote or approval. If I have cancer, tell me Doc, don't beat around the bush and candy coat it, we as Americans deserve the truth, so as we may use our minds to bodies in finding a solution, rather than just roll over and die!”

Beck’s bad boy? Nope!

Beck’s bad boy? Nope!

And General Electric paid all their taxes last year too, Right. The fact is Advertisers were either scared or bought off. Money talks and Bull Crap walks. Intelligence scares most people! Glenn Beck is probably one of the smartest men around, so to the article associated with him, for him, as this is a smart and clever writer. Maybe he too should be shunned from society because of his thoughts? Galileo Galilei was to concerned ahead of his time and when he began publicly supporting the heliocentric view, which placed the Sun at the center of the universe, he met with bitter opposition from some philosophers and clerics, and two of the latter eventually denounced him to the Roman Inquisition early in 1615, just as Beck was knocked from his bar stool because he rocked the system. We all have crosses to bear, maybe leaving Fox was a good thing as it leaves one less obstacle in his way, George Soros with Media Matters; without the ball and chain of reciprocity and possible infringements of first amendment rights, Glenn can take it to the next level; I for one will be waiting so I as he, can say; I told you so! If ever you in need Glenn, look me up................

STOP BLEEDING AMERICA! STOP H.R. 1249 America Invents Act

Stop the Change in Changing Your Rights

"America Invents Act" (H.R. 1249) H.R. 1249 America Invents Act is unconstitutional because it changes the patent system established in Article I Section 8 Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Obama-tics are becoming more and more anti-American and closer to pro-European-socialistic complexities in transforming our way of life to a “New” Obama way. Obama, his cabinet, and many "tenured" modern day Tories are working with some of the world's largest corporations, worldwide, to "harmonize" America's patent system, equal to those of Europe. These Tories are trying to weaken Your American system in a correlation to the same systems used overseas.

A feeling of "Global Harmonization" is the outcome of the proposed Obama Patent system, as it allows for a more social content rather than a capitalistic one and not only takes away your rights but enforces rulings which may or may not have worldwide implications of ownership, elsewhere; making it of an easy target for patent spin-offs! If it ain't broke, why fix it? Well, because President Obama and a number of our modern day Tories believe that our Constitutional patent system is old hat and needs revamping, as does the U.S. Constitution, according to these same Tories! A crucial importance to job creation and growth was recognized long ago by our Founding Fathers the Whig Party, in that inventions to Patent protection was and can be a job creator. Intellectual property rights create a more robust economy. In Article I Section 8 Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution , it specifically includes the the role of awarding patents to the individual person who actually came up with the invention; "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries."

Through this system, of checks & balances, the Constitutional patent system rewarded innovation by and for everyone, while unleashing the potentially harmonization of American know-how in strengthening our country's economic success through industrialization of American made products. Not shipped overseas to be overbought in an American buy back but Made in America, by America, for America and sold worldwide. This is one concept in “Keeping it at home” and turning a buck in our economic recovery.

Not to pick on General Electric but G.E. Paid NO CORPORATE TAXES last year on its billion dollar profits, so of course, G.E. Is but an proponent to this new change, as it stands to make even more of our American dollars, tax free, off you. General Electric has been a corporate donor to President Obama's election fund; who do you think Obama will help out first you?

Think about it? You as an average Joe invent a new widget of all widgets. You, as most of us middle class to lower income Americans have but little choices in applying for that Patent. Patent search takes time and money. Generally one cannot do it online but requires a trip to the local Patent Office; Washington, D.C. The time too read back through the last one hundred years, making sure another did not too think of it or like it and it is already patented. Money lost in that case but let us say you research and find it a clean sleight. Next you must classify your patent, according to the Federal Manual of Classification. Then, you must define it to establish the scope of class(es) and subclass(Es) relevant to the search. Once relevant class(Es)/subclass(Es) are identified, obtain a list of all patent numbers (1790-present) granted for every class and subclass to be searched. Now you must go to the official Gazette and look for exemplary claim(s) and a representative drawing for all patents on the list(s) to eliminate those unrelated to the invention. Upon doing all of that, you must now Complete Your Patent Document searching the complete text and drawing(s) of closely related patents to determine how different they are from the invention. Do not make the mistake of believing that just because no one else is selling your product that it does not already exist.
After determining that your idea is patentable and qualifies for a patent - you now need to decide if the expense of patenting is worth it. To you and your family it is a lot but to big business corporations, it is but a penitence to pay before outsourcing overseas for more quick profit. So, now your ready to file it; It takes up to three years for a patent application to be granted. Applications are often rejected the first time and you will often need to amend the claims and appeal. Having a team of lawyers larger than some neighborhoods, General Electric can get your patent through very quickly without even a thank you if this new idea of revamping the Patent office takes place, under the Obama administration. It would seem that President Obama's First-To-File system is unconstitutional but the Constitution has not stopped him in the past, so why would it now, as this uncontrolled alliance between big government and big business grows bigger and bigger, leaving in its wake a lost and poorer America. This Bill, now they are not called “EARMARKS but RYDERS” has passed through the Senate and and gaining momentum as more Tories are riding the band wagon to steer Obama's plan through.

STOP THIS LOOSE OF YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS in losing American Products to Overseas Corporations or to big business, like General Electric, who take the food away from American babies in their acts of greed by corporate loop holes in not paying their fair share in tax revenues. You may contact me at aconcernedwhig@gmail.com Put "Yes, I want to help stop Bleeding America” in the subject line and I will follow up with you to coordinate a strategy or you can you can send E-Mail messages to the White House, radio talk show hosts, write a letter to the editor of dozens of newspapers, or let media companies know your opinion of their programming, by checking out my favorite place to know, THE CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST'S Page. But also, make sure to contact your Congress Person and say, that H.R. 1249 America Invents Act is unconstitutional because it changes the patent system established in Article I Section 8 Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Tell them to keep America's Constitutional First-To-Invent patent system. It is the right thing to do! Tell them it's time to stand up for the Constitution and for the creation of jobs, as we send the modern Tories packing with Principles before Policy, Personality and Profit. As achieved through Deeds not words!

DOLLARS & SENSE

From 2007, the last full year before the financial crisis, to 2011, the second year of recovery, spending has jumped $1.1 trillion -- 40%. The President's budget plan would trim the deficit to $774 billion by 2022. In 2011, spending is projected at $3.8 trillion and revenues at $2.2 trillion, leaving the deficit at $560 billion. Even a Social Security Disabled College graduate with a degree in English knows this math makes NO SENSE! Since 2007, a projected, at that time, $200 billion would have been all that would have been needed to keep spending in line but the President, through Congress, in the name of temporary stimulus, permanently increased spending another $900 billion on entitlements; what part of we have no money do they not understand? Part of these, I gotta have toys were and are planning and implementation of Marine Spacial Planning, Geo-Fencing, Satellites for the “invisible fences,” creation of councils to law enforcement in putting Catch Shares, into place and thus creating job loss with in the Commercial Fishing Industry, creating a fleet reduction for offshore windmills off the Atlantic seaboard and increased Medicaid benefits, opening the gateway for high speed electric trains to more costly regulations in bank reform. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Government is bickering about an social issue that has no reason being in bed with Congress, as Planned Parenthood, which if she doesn't get her way is fixing to cause our government, to roll over and go to sleep! I am sick of this whole situation! Since when do social issues dictate what the Feds do? Are not the best place for social issues, to be handled by the people, of the people, for the people in the state of their choosing? The Feds run the Economic issues, while the States run those of social issues, creating jobs with in each state as the Federal Government relinquishes those departments in them. Cutting Federal jobs and turning them over to the States will generate income. The Social Security retirement age must be raised. The Government must regulate drug prices and health insurance administrative costs.

Why is it in a country like The Netherlands, a small and proud country, pays in correlation, of around 12% GDP for health care, as compared to our 18% and in America it is not as good? I pay too much for my medications and way too much towards health insurance administration, as do my neighbors and Florida family friends. I am sure, many of you reading this do too but because of high paid Lobbyists and special interest groups with a vested pocket in Congress or possibly our Commander in Chief, reform is another word that makes no sense.

With less than one percent to Federal Spending and it effecting again less than three percent devoted to the deficit, our country is going to fail, the poor to our own Military is going to not be paid and a slap across our faces. If the preservation of this nation is going to be preserved, it cannot be over a pittance of dollars and cents but must come from real Fair Share Politics that makes real sense!

Libya's Endgame: You Lose!

Libya's Endgame: You Lose!



There will be no clear political endgame, other than the fact that people will die and in the long run, it could be American blood! We have a very unsuccessful, history of arming insurgencies, so again, what have we learned? Apparently, nothing because we are speaking of a repeat in histories, again. Angola, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, Sudan, Vietnam, and again we are trying to complete a circle of complete stupidity. Al-Qaeda fighting Al-Qaeda, hm to which one is the lesser evil? The old fighting the new and we wish to do what, why, because someone might not like us if we do not. Wake up people, there are many out there wanting us to fail but first they too want their piece of pie! Two diplomatic sources at the United Nations independently confirmed that Washington, via Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, gave the go-ahead for Saudi Arabia to invade Bahrain and crush the pro-democracy movement in their neighbor in exchange for a "yes" vote by the Arab League for a no-fly zone over Libya - the main rationale that led to United Nations Security Council resolution 1973 but only after we first “invaded” Libya’s airspace with strikes from the sky. Nine out of their 22 members of the Arab League voted for the no-fly zone. They are not like Congress, you are not there, you lose that right to vote, majority wins, no shut-down of a Fly Zone. Libya is not all it is cracked up to be. There are more forces at play than simple, people are dying and the USA must come to their aid. No, much more is on this game board and to find out, one must not just rely upon our news but that from the BBC, Canada, Asia and , of course Saudi.

Back when President Obama was first introduced to a foray into foreign policy, he made an acute statement; “I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars,” well, apparently this must not be a dumb war because he used his Executive Powers to incubate this into an ideological statement with that to NATO and in setting up one of the last countries to not be subordinated to Africom, another NATO myriad "partnership,” but first you have to win and at what the cost; not just in dollars. According to Politico.com/news, “McCain also said that and he and Lieberman were in talks with Senate Foreign Relationship chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.) to draft an authorization resolution he’d like to see finished “soon,” perhaps as early as next week. Kerry’s office confirmed the bipartisan talks. “One of the concerns that we have to have is that we don’t know very much about the opposition,” Gates said in response to a question from Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich), adding that the rebels are “disparate and disaggregated” across the country. “We know a handful of the leaders [for whom] we have biographical information and some history.” Again, the old against the new, Al-Qaeda fighting Al-Qaeda for control of a “new” country. Then, today, April 05, 2011, Qaddafi's son or siblings are willing to concede power to them, in order to end the conflict. How far do these apples fall from the tree? Really does not matter as war means, fighting for dollars and there are too many hands on this game-board for it to end swiftly. Players include the Pentagon, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Saudi Arabia, the Arab League's Moussa, and Qatar, Al-Khalifa dynasty in Bahrain, assorted weapons contractors, and the usual CIA to Contractors suspects eager to scope out the in to outs and this does not include the old ARMCO armada thinking back to the good ole days before Qaddafi, who founded and played in the Libyan oil and gas industry! Endgame in sight, where?

Pick a country, any country, Angola, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, Sudan, Vietnam, and the song plays on; where did they go? To what was our cost. First the operatives, the Contractors, CIA, Arms importation, Advisers, NATO pull out, we stay in and the casket manufacturers even get on game. Which is the lesser of two evils in a coupe and especially if “One of the concerns that we have to have is that we don’t know very much about the opposition?” but we are backing them.

I am not convinced that vital American interests are at stake there! I believe that the President should come to Congress to seek approval of continuing this involvement. Our key concern remains the lack of Congressional involvement and oversight. The War Powers Act of 1973, created after the Vietnam War was to ensure legislative checks and balances before and during wartime situations. The Presidents failure to go to the American people before this engagement represents a breakdown in relations between the government and the populace of a democratic republic and what of our Government shutdown, was this not foreseen in the plan with Libya or did not the President forget, if it shuts down, so to does it affect the morel within our Armed forces too. Home groceries to bills not paid on time just adds more stress to those in harms way. It's hell of a way to run a business, I mean Government? The War Powers Act allows the President to use military force for 60 days without Congressional approval. I believe this act needs to either be revised or removed altogether, as it gives just a bit too much power, to one without rules of engagement; endgame, you lose!
