All In The Family
The US government has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country.The sale of these properties will fetch billions of dollars to the company handling the sales. That company belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Who is Richard Blum? He's the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein. What's wrong with this picture?Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune. His firm, CRI is the sole real estate company offering these properties for sale. CRI will be making a 6% commission on the sale of each and every one of these postal properties.All of these properties being sold are all paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers’ dollars, and they are allowed free and clear by the U.S.P.S. The only cost to keep them is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on.The United States Postal Service doesn’t even have to pay property taxes on these properties. Would you sell your house just because you couldn’t afford to pay the electric bill?
Well, the Post Office is.How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with such a sweet deal? A United States Senator’s husband is standing by ready to make millions from a U.S. taxpayer funded enterprise.No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over his 6% commission on the sale of hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of quasi-public assets.Pass this info on before it’s pulled from the Internet.

14-State Governors With Warnings of Arrest: And why is this not front page
news? by Ken
Barack Hussein Obama had served 14-State Governors in the United States, National Security Letters (NSLs) warning that the Governor’s actions in attempting to form “State Defense Forces” needs to be halted “immediately” or they will face arrest for the crime of treason. The employment of NSLs was authorized by the Patriot Act introduced by George W. Bush. Contained within the section related to these letters, it is forbidden for anyone receiving a NSL warning to even acknowledge the existence of said communication.Obama is angered by the several State Governors who have reestablished “State Defense Forces.” These forces are described as: “State Defense Forces (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States. State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.”Mr. Obama is fearful of these State Defense Forces, in that he does not have control of said forces, and with the U.S. Military stretched to near breaking from multiple deployments and theatre actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, these State military forces would be under the direct command and authority of the Governors in which states have said forces. In essence, the Governors would have “de facto control” of the United States.
The two Governors leading this move are: Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas. Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.” Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies and has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel. Governor Perry has declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas. Governor Perry further recently stated: “If Barack Obama’s Washington doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina – to name a few. The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise. Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces. This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many “citizen soldiers” choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.This is a fluid and still developing situation that warrants close attention.

#443 The Nation of Argentina
While I was attending Georgia Tech, there was an Argentine student in the Textile School that had some classes with me. In conversation with him one day I asked him about the government of Argentina. He told me that it was a democracy. I asked him about the length of the President’s term. His answer was that the President was elected for life. I was surprised and looked at him quite puzzled. He then commented that the term usually lasted two or three years and someone would kill him.
During my research for this column, I learned that only a few former presidents of Argentina were assassinated but a large majority were removed by military coup. In 1994, the Constitution of Argentina was amended to provide for a four year term as President with one additional term possible. The current President is a lady – President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Her husband was President Nestor Kirchner. He preceded Cristina as president and supported her run for the presidency. He had been diagnosed with cancer and died during her first term in office. She is serving her second term which will expire in December of 2015.
In 1910 the economy of Great Britain was the largest in the world with second place being a race between the United States and Argentina. International trade in Argentina was prominent with excellent ports and rivers that were easy to navigate. They were exporting beef and wheat in large quantities. They had railroads to get their products to the ports.
In 1916 while the economy was still very good the country elected Hipolito Irigoyen as President. His was a new political party called “The Radical Party.” His campaign promise was that he was going to “Fundamentally Change” the nation of Argentina. He began to move the country away from free enterprise into socialism.
One of his first actions was to provide health care to everyone in the nation. He also provided pensions to every person who reached the age of retirement. In order to stimulate the economy, he provided financing and subsidized the cost to build better housing for the low income citizens. He started a payroll tax to pay for these additional benefits. President Irigoyen served for six years between 1916 and 1922. He was elected again in 1928 and served two additional years. By 1930 the economy was already on a severe downturn with the amount being paid out not being covered by the amount of taxes coming in due to the continuing increase of the entitlements being supplied by the government.
In the next 16 years there were ten presidents elected or appointed in the nation of Argentina and the economy continued to get worse. In 1946 at the end of WWII Juan Peron was elected president. His theme in his campaign was to “Tax The Rich” and make the wealthy pay their fair share. When taxing the very rich did not supply enough funds, the income level for being a part of the rich was lowered until it covered a good portion of the middle class. The new income tax rate was over 500% of the original rate started by President Irigoyen. President Peron increased the size of government substantially even though the government was operating with a substantial deficit. Argentina has been unable to make payments on its national debt and the interest rate on their debts now exceeds 12 %. The United States pays an interest rate on its debt in the range of 2 %. If this rate were raised to 12 % our country would collapse in 4 or 5 years.
President Peron’s policies made it difficult to make a profit by farming and the younger members of the operators of the family farms began to move to the city and go to work in the expanding government agencies. Many of the family farms closed and the beef and wheat production was greatly reduced. A country that had earlier been exporting farm products to the rest of the world could not supply food for their own country. Meatless days became a common occurrence in Argentina. Peron promoted and supported the labor unions that became a base of support for his presidency.
Peron instituted a Value Added Tax (National Sales Tax) on all products sold. He taxed the value of each citizen’s assets. He taxed the value of the sale of investment assets whether it was a profitable sale or not.
After he was removed from office the government economy continued to decline. The current president and her husband considered themselves Peronists and believed that his policies were proper. In 2001, the government seized the public retirement funds and put them into the national treasury to help pay the government’s debts. They left an IOU from the government for the value of the funds. In 2002, Argentina experienced an economic period equal to the Great Depression in the USA.
In recent years, Argentina printed billions of dollars worth of their currency and used it to pay the debts of the government. This caused an international lose of confidence in their currency and in one year they had over 3000 percent inflation. The price of every product was changing on a daily basis.
President Irigoyen promised in 1916 that he would fundamentally change Argentina. In a hundred years it went from the world’s second or third most successful economy to one of the worst in the world. It sure is good to be in America and know that nothing like this could happen here. Our government would never follow any of the policies that were used in Argentina. Would they?

America, if you honestly wonder why and ask the same questions, please pass this one on simply because you do grasp the irony and actually understand the reason why you should! Pretty incredible isn't it?I found in this case the friend who sent this to me was correct, the old phrase for decades was: a picture is worth a thousand words but here are two pictures which now are worth a billion words.
Enough said I think........
