No Transparency

I hope you all are getting tired of this absolute horse crap. They are not only going to give tax dollars away, but they are going to give it away and not tell us who they are going to give money to or how much.

This is a perfect place in my opinion to stab the big snake in the eye. Obama talked a decent amount about having a transparent government. Then, not even a few months into his presidency he is (a) signing bills that were written overnight (b) signing bills that are filled with pork (c) signing bills that he doesn’t read (d) signing bills that the Americans don’t have a chance to read and lastly (e) having government take whatever they want to give to whoever they want… and nobdy can know about it. Horse shit.

Even (here) on 5 March 2009 Obama sends out a Memo to all departments stating:

Government should be transparent.  Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing.  Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public.

“My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use.” How is not even letting our Representatives see where this money is going supposed to be transparent?

I remember back with Halliburton, people were all pissed off because they thought that special contracts were being given out to Bush&Co people. True or not, at least we knew how much was being given and to whom! Here, we are just giving money away to… who knows!

This is ridiculous and I want to puke. I hope you all write your Representative to support H.R.1207 (which would make the Federal Reserve accountable/audited).

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
