We want to weigh in on the non-controversy, a matter we believe is a further distraction from the important issues discussed during the President and First Lady’s recent travels abroad. An example of what we consider important is whether or not the U.S. dollar will remain worldwide currency. In our opinion this is a topic of far greater concern
than Michelle Obama’s sleeveless style or Mrs. Obama alleged breach of protocol by touching a British royal; a touch which was reciprocal, since the Queen initiated the touchy-feely expression (more…)
The big question pertaining to the economy among the YouThinkWhat staff is, “Why is the government forcing the auto industry to be accountable for the taxpayer dollars it has received, but the banks have been allowed to do whatever they wish with the corporate welfare money they’ve been given?”
We have had much discussion about the disparity of treatment of two industries. The chief executives in both the banking and the auto industries have made major mistakes in handling the money. Poor decisions abound.
We offer our explanation of the reason for the different treatment of the two major businesses. (more…)

intentional contamination, and for other purposes.”
H. R. 875 proposed February 4, 2009 to be enacted by the United States House of Representatives and the Senate.
This seemingly innocuous proposed bill, also known as the “Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009″, has started a firestorm of controversy among many American citizens who are proponents of organic gardening.
The federal legislative bodies are in a rush to get this bill passed. It is has the support by major chemical companies such as ADM, Monsanto and about thirty other companies with a vested interest in making sure the nation continues to use the petroleum based fertilizers and growth chemicals already in use. Chemicals that have over a period of years have contributed to the erosion of the public health. (more…)
Will the utter reckless spending never end at Bank Of America? Reports of excess spending of the taxpayer bailout money at Super Bowl XLIII has been explained as being part of Bank Of America’s growth strategy.
Really? Would that be growth at the expense of the shareholders and depositors?

In previous articles we have spoken of the security lapses at the web site for Bank of America customers. We’ve found another writer has noticed what we’ve noted and written about Bank Of America and its “illusion of security” for its web sites and accounts. (more…)
This is the Bush family’s final Christmas in the White House. As their gift to the nation along with a failing economy and two wars in far away places that our country can not possibly win without completely obliterating the planet, the family has recently released a video of the White House holiday environment from the canine viewpoint of Barney–White House terrier and his companion female terrier.

We wanna tell you a story how back in the days of the wild, wild West, America was Bush-whacked in the year 2000 by Bush slandering McCain and stealing the election from Gore, and again in 2004 by stealing votes by the Bush Travelin’ Cornpone Show featurin’ the Republican neo-conservative wing.
Fast forward to today…Presidential Campaign 2008… Lost in the caboose is good old John McCain. He wasn’t good enough in 2000, what makes anyone think he is good enough now? This train is going backwards on the Bridge To Nowhere real fast. Perhaps they knew they were going to lose and thought why not sacrifice John McCain again? Or perhaps it is a test to determine how stupid is too stupid. Ladies and gentlemen, lacking the intelligence or common sense of Forest Gump, John McCain. but remember even Forest did not become president though he did become rich like McCain.
Now voters the Bush-whack was bad enough for a disaster movie, we sure don’t want to get train-wrecked in 2008 by the psychopathically insincere Peter Lorre smile of the John McCain Double Talk Slow Motion Stage Coach Train Wreck: Episode on the Precipice of Disaster. All Aboard! Trust me McCain as the conductor taking you down the tracks where his pals have already blown the rails out out.
But don’t worry, little Annie Oakley can skin a Russian and start a war with a moose so there is absolutely no danger if the engineer should fall asleep or drop dead at the wheel now that the dead man break switch has been safely removed. Full Petroleum ahead. There is no doubt we’re in danger of going straight off the tracks with Nailin’ Pailin’ on board. Them Russkie ships sailing are into our hemisphere. Our missiles in Poland can blow out Moscow’s lights. Happy Birthday.
This is the perfect set up for the new guy.
If only the financial collapse had come about one hundred eighteen days later. It would have been the sublime set up for Blame the new guy.
Somehow they are trying to do that anyway. Even though he “has no experience and according to the GOP has done absolutely nothing” nevertheless he is also to blame for everything that has gone wrong with the banks and the economy. Barack Obama he’s that one, didn’t you know .
Sarah Palin. You either love her or hate her. She is often the butt of liberal leftist jokes like the one that goes “How do you make Sarah Palin’s eyes shine? Shine a flashlight in her ears!”
The story of how two Canadian comics made a phone call to La Palin wherein she gushed as she spoke to a man with a fake French accent as he was introducing himself as French president Nicholas Sarkozy is just one more example of how a woman who came from the wooded frozen tundra of Alaska is not ready for prime time politics.

It began on Sunday on the news program Meet The Press when former Secretary of State General Colin Powell, a Republican, announced his reasoned endorsement of Democrat Senator Barack Obama and in so many words declared Palin unqualified to be vice president or for that matter president; it is a decision said Powell that calls into question fellow Republican John McCain’s judgment and fitness to be POTUS.
