31 Days . . .

That's how much time is remaining in the Bush reign of terror. He succeeded in raiding the Treasury immediately upon entering office to pay back his wealthy donors and friends; he ignored warnings about the threat of bin Laden and, in fact, CUT SPENDING on terrorism prior to 9/11. He was on a 30-day vacation in Texas just prior to 9/11, then was babysat by brother, Jeb, in Florida during the attack. Here's a curious note on Jeb, who has designs on running for the Senate in Florida, a stepping stone to a Presidential run. He declared martial law in Florida on Sept. 7, 2001, four (4) days BEFORE the attacks. But that's another subject for another day.

W led us into a war that should never have been waged, and intentionally made outsourcing of our highest paying jobs to other countries a necessity as part of his plan for a global economy. It was necessary for W to drive America towards becoming a third world country. It was the exact philosophy preached by his grandfather, Prescott. W bankrupted every company or government he ever headed, and this is his biggest accomplishment. His legacy:
Two (2) wars and the GREAT DEPRESSION OF 2009.


Thankfully, Barack Obama will assume the duties of office in just 31 days. He has an enormous task ahead of him and will literally have to replace every department head appointed by W. over 8 years. The government will have to be changed from the bottom up. He has already committed to reviewing over 200 Executive Orders from Bush.


Over the next month, we will post common sense money-saving solutions to some of the problems awaiting Mr. Obama. Our government wastes untold billions of dollars every year. Let's come up with some creative solutions we can send to the administration as positive suggestions. It's not about Obama, it's about US. Just ask him:

There are so many things that can be modified or discontinued that would save us millions and make life easier. For instance, The War on Drugs is a scam designed to put billions into the hands of law enforcement, private corporate prisons, and the companies who have contracts to provide goods and services. Over 700,000 people are incarcerated every year for simple marijuana possession. There has never been one recorded overdose or death from marijuana. Not one in centuries of use. Why are these people in jail? Do you realize the costs to society and the effect on their families, jobs, etc.?

Tobacco kills 400,000 people per year and our government subsidizes tobacco farmers to grow it. Common sense or outright greed??? We have a lot to talk about in the coming weeks. Stay tuned . . .

  1. "The War on Drugs", yeah it's been a huge waste of resources mainly because they didn't worry about dealing with it at home. Doing the whole "projection of power" into the South American country's have been a waste because the local govt. doesn't care as long as they get paid off.

    At least the US/Mexico boarder wall has started to work. Shame it's gonna be not in the next presidency.
