Dump Nanci Pelosi & Democrat Leadership -- Corrupt, Failures at Even Tailing Republicans
The democratic leadership was incredibly spineless in standing up to Bush and the Wall Street oligarchs. Nanci Pelosi is as corrupt as they come -- call her at her 202 225-4965 and give condolences that she wasn't able to rally support around Bush and the derivitives speculators. Advise that she flee to Israel where most of her payola comes from.

Don’t they look Chummy!!!
In a recent photo of President George W. Bush and Nancy Pelosi you can see; President Bush with a Smirk on his face, covering his mouth with one hand and glaring down; "possibly" (on the People). With him in the photo is, Nancy Pelosi with the right side of her head leaning toward the left side of George Bush's face. Her hand is covering her mouth as is George's and she has this big grin on her face as if to say "thanks for letting me join your club."

Bailout of the Banks: Naked Short Selling Should Be Prosecuted and the Reparations Paid
The current financial emergency goes much deeper than subprime mortgages and escalating risk in the derivatives market. Watchdogs of these big brats have been very lenient and indulgent over the years. Naked short selling played a big part in the cause of the last Great Depression. SEC has admitted that naked short selling can collapse the financial system, but it has not moved to stop the illegal sale of. billions of phantom stocks.

No to the Bailout of the Capitalist Speculators!
The financial crisis that has been heating up since early 2007 reached the boiling point in late September. Credit markets virtually stopped functioning. A full-blown panic swept stock markets worldwide. The U.S. economy is in the throes of a recession that could turn into a Depression lasting for years. In these dire straits, the Wall Street speculators who set off this crisis are demanding that the government rescue them with a bailout priced at $700 billion. The actual costs will be far higher, a trillion dollars or more. Meanwhile, the Democrats are pushing hardest for the Bush bailout of the banks. Presidential candidate Barack Obama blames "greed" for the crisis on Wall Street (capitalism without greed?) and says there must be no "blank check to Washington" -- meaning he's for putting in a few conditions as window dressing. Following in the Democrats' footsteps, the AFL-CIO labor bureaucrats called a demo for "No Blank Check for Wall Street." Yet no amount of regulation will stop the boom-bust cycle of capitalism. Meanwhile unemployment lines are growing and a million families were thrown out of their homes by bank foreclosures in the last year. While the fat cats, Democrats and bureaucrats are all going for the Bush bailout to prop up U.S. capitalism, revolutionary Marxists oppose this trillion-dollar giveaway to the Wall Street speculators, calling instead for a program of transitional demands leading to the expropriation of the banks and the entire bourgeoisie through workers revolution.

GOAL OF THE GLOBALISTS AND OUR PLAN
What we are struggling against is far better organized, financed, and disciplined than we are, and is well on its way toward the creation of a global power structure which is privately owned, but operates through governments, the military/police/prisons and financial institutions. The head of this Global Consortium is Travistock Institute, a collection of the world's most powerful men (no women), headquartered in the UK. These men own and/or control vast empires of wealth and property. They control governments and the banking system. They control commerce and currency. They can create wealth or poverty with a stoke of a pen. Travistock Institute is the champion of the "New World Order".

PROSPECTS FOR THE BIODIESEL INDUSTRY
Where we've been.
The biodiesel industry has reached a crisis point. The demand for biodiesel has promoted the construction of a large number of biodiesel plants. These refineries use the oils from many plants, but especially soy. The cost of seed oil has risen dramatically because of the rise in petrodiesel costs to farm and the demand for ethanol as an additive to gasoline. Ethanol is used in the processing of biodiesel.

WHO IS SOVERIGN​?
-- People taking back their sovereignty.
We have seen the impact over the past 233 years of the abuse of sovereignty which was loaned by the People to our governments. We deposited it on the door steps of the state and national capitals, and allowed our disleaders to pick it up, play with it and do with it as they wished. Their wish was and is self-empowerment and wealth at the expense of the People and the devastation of our Earth. We have paid, and will continue to pay, a serious price for our lack of foresight. We did not and do not now "consider the impact of our and the disleaders' decisions on the seventh generation".

NO BLANK CHECK FOR WALLSTREET
Congress is on the brink of making a one-sided deal to give George W. Bush a blank check to bail out his pals - offering nearly (or perhaps more than) a trillion taxpayer dollars to Wall Street to cover its bad debts. That works out to somewhere between $2000 and $5000 from every American family. So what do the taxpayers get in return?

What’s lurking behind the TRADE Act?
Are the Democrats making a radical turn to the left? This is the conclusion many are making after learning about the TRADE Act (Trade Reform, Accountability, Development and Employment Act). A wide coalition of leftist organizations— including labor unions, fair trade, and environmental groups— are uniting around the Democratic bill that aspires to "renegotiate NAFTA" and possibly revisit and revise many free-trade agreements the US has signed with various countries.

The bill's appeal is far-reaching. Many who've recently left the Democratic Party in disgust— because of its role in the Iraq war, NAFTA, destruction of democratic rights, etc— are being brought back into its orbit, while those who claim that it's possible to "pressure the progressive Democrats" have used this piece of "landmark legislation" as proof of their theory.

While the bill appears to address the popular outrage that has emerged over outsourcing, "corporate flight", and globalization in general, a deeper look into the details reveals not only extremely empty rhetoric, but outright reactionary intentions.
