Watching Your Money Go Down the Proverbial Toilet

Posted on January 7, 2010. Filed under: General Info | Tags: , , |

Your tax dollars (not so) hard at work: was built to help the administration keep its pledge to invest stimulus money smartly, and to hold public officials to account for the taxpayer money they spend. We do this by allowing you, citizens around the country with local knowledge about the stimulus projects in your city, to find, discuss and rate those projects.

Did you see the list of banks who took tarp money? It is a whopping 26 pages of fine print long. Want to see if your bank is on the list and how much took?

You can find more egregious spending in my column from Tuesday. We may be pinching pennies, but Congress is not. They are even spending constituents yearly income equivalents on office furniture, catering, and living high on the hog. Let’s not forget their pay raises, too.

Also, in a column last week “The Audacity of Dopes” I detailed the figures for the national budget, including their raises.

I’m sure there will be more to come to talk about in upcoming days. The money faucet appears to be working in D.C. even though there’s a money drought in the rest of the country.

PS- As long as your blood pressure is already up, here’s an article I came across, I thought I would pass along:

12 House Members have fundraising firm email addresses?  Is your representative on the list?

White House putting off release of budget update by Tom Raum at MyWay
WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House is being forced to acknowledge the wide gap between its once-upbeat predictions about the economy and today’s bleak landscape. The administration’s annual midsummer budget update is sure to show higher deficits and unemployment and slower growth than projected in President Barack Obama’s budget in February and update in May, and that could complicate his efforts to get his signature health care and global-warming proposals through Congress. The release of the update – usually scheduled for mid-July – has been put off until the middle of next month, giving rise to speculation the White House is delaying the bad news at least until Congress leaves town on its August 7 summer recess.

ATF says New States Protective Gun Laws are Illegal by Liberty News Radio/Dprogram
Last month, the state of Tennessee’s General Assembly passed House Bill 1796, the “Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act,” which states that any firearms or ammunition manufactured within the state and legally owned and kept within the state by citizens are “not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration” due to provisions in the Second, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. But according to Assistant Director Carson W. Carroll of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the U.S. Constitution is little more than a g.d. piece of paper, as George W. Bush so infamously deemed it during his reign as the decider-in-chief. On July 16, Carroll dispatched his agency’s official response to the law passed in Tennessee — the BATFE asserts that “Federal law supersedes the Act, and all provisions of the Gun Control Act and the National Firearms Act, and their corresponding regulations, continue to apply.”

A Worse Economy Is The New Normal by Bob Chapman at Liberty News Radio
Goldman Sachs raking in massive profits, growth in high-frequency trading, bogus CPI figures, subprimes still being sold off, the need for financial policy reform cannot be overstated, PIMCO Paul McCulley has ideas for the economy, clamor for another stimulus package, zero hedge is a bad recommendation. Due to the fact that Goldman Sachs is currently the favorite of Washington they are raking in massive profits during a time when most banks and brokerage firms are struggling for survival. We find this of great interest inasmuch as the recently converted bank received a $10 billion taxpayer bailout via Goldman’s connections in Washington. They also received a myriad of benefits from several other government schemes over the past two years. It is nice to know that in part American taxpayers made this possible while unemployment is running on a U6 basis at 20.5%, and Americans are losing their homes by the millions. Pay surged 75% in the second quarter and compensation and benefits costs were $6.65 billion, up 37% from the equivalent quarter in 2008.

Hillary Clinton admits that the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) runs the Government from Global Research/Liberty News Radio
As with a recent blog I did about a Rothschild puppet blatantly promoting a One World Government solution to our “man-made” global warming “crisis,” now Secretary of State (and CFR member) Clinton admits in her latest address to the Council on Foreign Relations what Carroll Quigley wrote about in Tragedy and Hope (Chapter 65), Dan Smoot wrote about in The Invisible Government, and Gary Allen wrote about in None Dare Call It Conspiracy: See Video Here
“’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.”
