Hello again folks, I have been working on a campaign video that has been consuming my time. I can’t believe it has taken hours and hours of work for a 4 minute and 54 second video. Now that it is complete, I hope to have it on my website, which the website is currently in process to be online soon, thanks to Bryan Haddock.

With all that has been happening with our newly developing government controlled economy, we need to not only look at what the government has been doing but another very important aspect of the economy. That is what I have wrote about many times and that is the reduction of the anti trust laws that govern the size of corporations that control most aspects of the key parts of our entire economy.

Without these laws, that have been relaxed over the past number of years, these huge conglomerates have been able not only to control large aspects of the markets they are in but have huge resources to directly influence, through the governments local, state, and national, the laws which were in place to protect the economy from the very things that are happening. Their self serving laws and deregulation to enhance their financial positions with little to no regards for the economy as a whole, is what has lead up to this current financial disaster.

In order to better understand how the financial system works in our current state of “Capitalism” (this name has become a word for market control, I would rather use the words “Free Enterprise System”) I found this article that gives a very comprehensive outline how the market system really works.

I know this is a blog but with over 25 years of study I have done in the economics behind our political system, this guy is right on. This system has to be changed to be more competitive, competition instills innovation not only in the product or service that is being done but in the costs involved in doing business. Not controlled by the most economically influential, which is the current state of our economic situations.

Say No To Real I.D.-DownsizeDC.org-May 29, 2009

May 29, 2009

D o w n s i z e r – D i s p a t c h


MEDIA NOTICE: Today (Friday), Jim Babka is scheduled to appear on “Straight Talk w/ Jerry Hughes,” starting at 3:05 PM Eastern. Listening details can be found on the DownsizeDC.org blog.

Quote of the Day: “I won’t call it Real ID, I’ll call it enhanced or higher security drivers license.” — Robert V. LaPenta, President and CEO of L-1 Identity Solutions, which stands to be a primary beneficiary of any government scheme for a national ID card

Subject: Tricking Americans Into Real ID

Jim Harper, at the Cato Institute, alerts us to new dangers on the national ID front.

The so-called Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and certain politicians, are trying multiple ways to impose a national ID card on us, even though the American people have made it very clear we don’t want it.

One under-handed scheme started with the passage of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, which requires law abiding U.S. citizens to have either a passport or an enhanced drivers license to cross the Mexican or Canadian borders. An “enhanced drivers license”…

* Is an initiative of the DHS that has NO Congressional mandate
* Will require you to undergo a security interview, pay a fee, and get a new federal ID number (in addition to your Social Security number)
* Has an RFID chip that can be read at a distance, up to 30 feet away, even while it’s in your wallet!

Now things are being rigged to move citizens in the direction of the enhanced drivers license.

The problem starts with the fact that passports are too expensive. The high price gives people an incentive to pay for the enhanced drivers license, which is about half the cost. The Government Accounting Office had already issued a report saying that the $100 price for a passport didn’t need to be that high, but…

Now they’ve raised the price even higher. Representative Paul Opsommer of Michigan suspects the purpose of this is to drive even more people to get the cheaper (but more dangerous) enhanced drivers license.

Please notice that all of this is being driven NOT by Congress, but by un-elected bureaucrats in the DHS and the State Department. But that doesn’t mean Congress is blameless. Congress is doing nothing to reign in the bureaucrats, plus, some are even working to make things worse. For instance…

Something called the PASS Act is being crafted to revive the Real ID concept, under a new name, and companies like L-1 Identity Solutions, which stands to benefit, are almost certainly lobbying hard to make it happen. We must lobby just as intensely in the other direction.

Please send your Congressional employees a message asking them once again to repeal the REAL ID Act.

Use your personal comments to ALSO ask them to…

* Stop the DHS from promoting enhanced drivers licenses
* Make the State Department lower the cost of passports
* Reject all the new forms of REAL ID, such as the PASS Act

We achieved our goal of sending more messages in May then we sent in April, but this issue still needs your attention. We hope you’ll use DownsizeDC.org’s proprietary Educate the Powerful System to send a message to repeal the Real ID Act.

AE 9/11 Truth – Action Alert! May 24, 2009

Urgent Message from Richard Gage, AIA

NYC 9/11 Investigation Ballot Initiative

Fellow Architect/Engineer and other Petition Signers,

It looks like 2009 will be the breakthrough year for establishing a real investigation into the destruction of the three World Trade Center high-rise on 9/11. At the San Francisco AIA convention, April 30 to May 2, about 60 architects signed our petition calling for a new investigation, bringing the total number of architects and engineers calling for a new investigation to over 700.

Out on the East coast, a different petition is happening—one that we must support FULLY. In the very city where these tragic events took place, over 38,000 New Yorkers have so far signed the petition calling for a citywide referendum on the formation of a new, independent, impartial investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. When the voters of New York City collect the required number of signatures to put this referendum on the ballot and pass it by majority vote, a new Commission will be formed, this time consisting of pre-selected individuals who will follow the evidence wherever it may lead. Such a Commission will give us the legally established venue to present the evidence for the explosive controlled demolition of the three WTC high-rises.

For over three years, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have called upon Congress to reopen the 9/11 investigation. Our demand has fallen on deaf ears. Now, we have the opportunity to help make this investigation a reality.

The dedicated team at NYCCAN in New York City need OUR support. To guarantee their referendum will make it on the ballot, they must to collect 35,000 more signatures by the end of June. Their goal is attainable if they have adequate funding. Their petitioning staff has become so effective that they collect 1 signature for every dollar spent – “a buck a sig”, as they like to put it. If 2,000 of us donate only $25, they will immediately raise the $50,000 needed for the completion of their petitioning effort. And with 75,000 signatures, the referendum will indeed make it on the ballot. This donation must be in addition to your ongoing support of AE911Truth. We cannot afford to lose any of your valued support at this time – as our upcoming architect convention projects are equally important in the overall 9/11 truth effort.

Now is the time for us to put our money where our heart is. Donate $25 right now, and we will be able to present the evidence before an independent, impartial Commission. Now is the time to support the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now, because NYC CAN.

One real chance. One real investigation. Donate now.

Sincerely,

Richard Gage, AIA
