I am reading former President Bushes book "Decision Points. The chapter on 9-11 is an engaging story on the events from the Presidents view point. Of course it is missing quite a lot of data because of National Security, but reads well enough...The President comments on the foreclosure debacle and the financial meltdown
THE MOST POWERFUL MAN ON THE PLANET EXPLAINS HE WAS POWERLESS
He blames what happened mostly on Wall Street and the lack of governmental supervision by the financial regulators. I mean there is a pattern forming here with LACK of government responsibilities..
JUST WHAT DO ALL THESE AGENCIES DO...?
We have read and have heard on how before 9-11, we had intelligence to forewarn us...but the different agencies did not communicate effectively. Now, President Bush shares we how regulation failed to do its job and stop Wall Street from cleaning all our financial clocks.....
DON'T WORRY...WE HAVE A EMERGENCY PLAN IN PLACE
FEMA had a chance to show us what can be done when we have emergencies.....absolutely chaos and little or no action. President Bush shares he was very disappointed on his responses for this National emergency. It sounds so grand too...Federal Emergency Management Agency...can even manage itself....
NO WONDER PEOPLE WONDER
If you study up on the Pearl Harbor invasion, there is much evidence introduced to show you that we had warning and knowledge ahead of time. Many concluded that we wanted to go to war to stimulate the economy and let this happen to rally the people....Does this sound familiar...?
SECRET SERVICE KEEPS SECRETS FROM EVEN THEMSELVES
I read the Warren report on the assassination of President Kennedy. You find out that the Secret Service is inept, untrained and you wonder what they did all day...? Oswald wondered that too...successfully.
WHO IS IN CHARGE...I JUST WANT TO SPEAK WITH THEM
Has this country become too big to be properly managed...? Are we our worst enemies....? How long can this go on? Why is there resistance to the change that we need the most...? At the root of it all, I fear money and power at work and not for WE THE PEOPLE either.....
THE SAUDI ARABIANS PROVIDE FREE HEALTH-CARE
Affordable health care continues to allude us while millions go without and suffer... Why is that? The lobbyists for this spend hundreds of millions to keep it the way it is...That means money is the root of all this and the caring of people and their needs second....Shame Shame
HEY....LETS MAKE TROUBLE WHERE THERE IS NONE...why?
Everyone once in a while, someone wants to play with Social Security. I learned that 2/3 of the United States relies on some sort of financial assistance. To survive exclusively on Social Security, one must give in to poverty and living a lesser life. Wanting to reduce or modify that would cause dispersion and panic within our Nation...
Former President Harry Truman...told the truth about politics, Washington and our leaders. This truth holds up even unto today....he said...
'"IF YOU WANT A FRIEND IN WASHINGTON....GET A DOG"
Well someone took it literally and the place is full of dogs...the human kind and they are running around all over eating, drinking, perking, benefiting, and making merry while the country goes to hell in a hand-basket....
