In this article I describe the real genesis behind the so called nonsense of The Fiscal Cliff and its solutions.  It's about YOU/ME US dying sooner and how the "powers that be" are going about doing just that in the interests of generating fiscal savings as well as further concentration of economic and political power at the expense of the majority.  The causes are multi-factoral and relate directly to the fact that our political system is entirely owned and operated by Corporate America and the TOP 1%. Nobody in D. C. is working/representing the interests of "The Majority."

Please look for my latest publication entitled: The Rush To "The Cliff," The Deception vs Unspoken Alternatives

No time like the present to bring a little MORE  levity to the campaign just now getting underway.  It is difficult to imagine a more outrageous bunch of klowns, each of whom believing that they have the right stuff to be president.  So, in line with that bizarre thinking here is a sharp little video that might just lighten your day.

The Tea Party people and their esteemed list of speakers and of course CORPORATE AND LOBBYIST Sponsors were not without opposition. My wife who displayed tremendous courage in standing fast against a crazed assailant... and I ended up being the ONLY anti-propagandists to show up to counter this hypocritical and mis-informing event.

I brought my trusty new megaphone with me and spent my time in between being PHYSICALLY ACCOSTED by one individual whose overtly aggressive behavior (as Chyrisse captured on video) as she committed her acts of violence upon my person as well as my wife.  See YouTube Channel CorporatistNationTV Link here...   src="http://www.youtube.com/... />

Listen to the interviews of the "TeaBaggers" in the WMNF link above!  Their thoughts and opinions demonstrate the marked pathology of their movement.   "Ignorance represents the greatest threat to our democracy."  The comments of the people interviewed for the radio spot are relevant documentation of this disturbing paradigm.

A validating article by nationally known nursing leader Rose Ann DeMoro on the recently passed health reform (so-called), legislation with comments by ARNP, former congressional candidate and Single Payer Health Plan advocate John Russell.

I am NOT a candidate this cycle!

As many of you are aware, I have been active in the effort to bring true reform to America's health care system since 2004. As you may have read in my recent message, this new piece of legislation is not what the democrats in Washington want you to believe it is.

In other words, "This law ain't what its cracked up to be!"

Below is a message from a national leader in the health care field who points out in her message which I received today, just how little actual benefit there is for the average person. As Howard Fineman said on MSNBC's "Countdown" this past week, "The Health Insurance Industry is in a lot stronger position than it was last week!"

Precisely what I have been saying throughout what I have determined to be the "Faux Health (Insurance) Reform Debate of 2009-10!"

Below is the article by national nursing leader
Rose Ann DeMoro with my comments as noted.

So How Does "THIS" Benefit ME?

I have no inside knowledge as to just how this Health INSURANCE Reform NOT Health Care Reform Bill will turn out in the House tomorrow.   One thing that I DO know about however is that this bill, should it become law, offers little in the way of benefit to ordinary folks relatively speaking...  in comparison to WHAT is gained by the true winners in this well orchestrated faux debate.... BIG INSURANCE!

Bill Foster "Flintstone" did not need to go negative in view of the St. Petersburg Times, WMNF, Tampa Tribune, FOX 13, BayNEWS9, WFLZ Radio/Bubba, WFLA Channel 8, 88.5FM WMNF "Community" Radio, et al...

ALL working in a COORDINATED fashion to TRASH Mrs. Ford with as much REPETITION as possible of "KEY" words like... "Divisive..." "HNIC..." including in written stories that the word Negro at times is replaced by an epithet that also begins with the letter "N" in the acronym HNIC!   I did not hear the word "abrasive" used in describing Kathleen Ford... but perhaps I missed it???

THIS is WHY St.Petersburg residents will now have a KomPLETE KLOWN errr "PUPPET" as mayor.  This is by design of course, just as "The Establishment" had planned...

Rep. Alan Grayson was again under fire from the St. Petersburg Times this week for once more speaking the TRUTH about the sordid state of affairs that is our Health Insurance Industry and the various means of DENYING care in this country which in the end leaves too many people "UN Covered" to the extent that it indeed leads to the hastening of their demise.  One comment that says it ALL in defending the congressman comes from a provider of Health Care who has like Rep. Grayson, long been an advocate for Single Payer Health Care in this country.  Read this and judge for yourself whether Alan has been wrongly accused or if he has merely been the "Lone Wolf" in Washington with the courage to step outside the constraints of the status quo to stand up for the people.  http://blogs.tampabay.com/...

Let the voters decide... whether they want to listen to congressional candidates UNFILTERED... or listen to a bunch of establishment pundits give their opinion in an effort directed at manipulating the voters with their "opinions" of the candidates and races. www.johnrussellforcongress.com

Background...

John Russell in a Press Release dated 8 October 2008 together with four other congressional challengers in a bipartisan show of unity against the protectors of the STATUS QUO called a press conference for 2:30 pm to discuss the deplorable decision of WEDU management to PROTECT INCUMBENCY by refusing to air congressional challengers when incumbents choose to forfeit. :mad:

In the past, when incumbents choose to bail at WEDU and other venues the "show" goes on and the public gets to hear the challenger without any "spinning" from the media.

WEDU in this most important election of our lifetime in 2008 has chosen to (protect incumbency) by filtering with MAXIMUM "SPIN" TO POTENTIALLY "PROTECT" at least 3 congressional incumbents by preventing the public from seeing or hearing from the challengers to Bay Area Congressional INCUMBENTS in any meaningful way.
