Social Security doesn't add a penny to the deficit. That program that Rick Perry and the idiot Republican Tea party deems a criminal enterprise that needs killed, according to the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau, kept nearly 14 million seniors out of poverty last year, as well as 1.1 million children. Recent poverty data released this month (September 2011) presents a sobering picture of the economic struggles Americans face. A record 46.2 million people were in poverty last year and median incomes are lower today than they were in 1997. But Perry, and many other Republicans who want to do everything from raise the retirement age to privatize Social Security, would take away yet one more piece of the social safety net that has helped millions of Americans stay economically afloat for nearly 80 years. DON'T LET REPUBLICANS KILL SOCIAL SECURITY OR "PRIVATIZE IT". They want that money and are lying to you to get their hands on it.

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room is a 2005 documentary film based on the best-selling 2003 book of the same name by Fortune reporters Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind, a study of one of the largest business scandals in American history. McLean and Elkind are credited as writers of the film alongside the director, Alex Gibney. The film examines the 2001 collapse of the Enron Corporation, which resulted in criminal trials for several of the company's top executives; it also shows the involvement of the Enron traders in the California electricity crisis. The film begins with a profile of Kenneth Lay, who founded Enron in 1985. Two years later, Enron became embroiled in scandal after two traders began betting on the oil markets, resulting in suspiciously consistent profits for the company. Enron's CEO, Louis Borget, was also discovered to be diverting company money to offshore accounts. After auditors uncovered their schemes, Lay encouraged them to "keep making us millions". However, the traders were fired after it was revealed that they gambled away Enron's reserves, nearly destroying the company. After these facts were brought to light, Lay denied having any knowledge of such wrongdoing. Lay hired new CEO Jeffrey Skilling, a visionary who joined Enron on the condition that they utilize mark-to-market accounting, allowing the company to book potential profits on certain projects immediately after the deals were signed, whether or not those projects turned out to be successful. Therefore, Enron could subjectively give the appearance of being a profitable company even if it wasn't. Skilling imposed his Darwinian worldview on Enron by establishing a review committee that graded employees and annually fired the bottom fifteen percent, who were deemed unsuitable for the company's objectives. This created a highly competitive and brutal working environment. Skilling hired lieutenants who enforced his directives inside Enron, known as the "guys with spikes." They included J. Clifford Baxter, an intelligent but manic-depressive executive; and Lou Pai, the CEO of Enron Energy Services. Pai was notorious for using shareholder money to feed his obsessive habit of visiting strip clubs, and for allegedly inviting strippers into his office and the Enron trading floor. Pai abruptly resigned from EES with $250 million, soon after selling his stock. Despite the amount of money Pai had made, the divisions he formerly ran lost $1 billion, a fact covered up by Enron. Pai used his money to buy a large ranch in Colorado, becoming the second-largest landowner in the state. With its success in the bull market brought on by the dot-com bubble, Enron sought to beguile stock market analysts by meeting their projections. Executives pushed up their stock prices and then cashed in their multi-million dollar options in a process called "pump and dump." Enron also mounted a PR campaign to portray itself as profitable and stable, even though its worldwide operations were performing poorly. One major failure was the Dabhol Power Plant in India, which Enron built to defy an industry fear of investing in that country. However, Enron abandoned the plant when India couldn't afford the power it was producing, losing $1 billion. Elsewhere, Enron attempted to use broadband technology to deliver movies on demand, and "trade weather" like a commodity; these initiatives also failed. However, using mark-to-market accounting, Enron recorded non-existent profits for these ventures. Enron's successes continued as it became one of the few Internet-related companies to survive the dot-com bubble burst in 2000, and was named as the "most admired" corporation by Fortune magazine for the sixth year running. However, Jim Chanos, an Enron investor, and Bethany McLean, a Fortune reporter, questioned irregularities about the company's financial statements and stock value. Skilling responded by calling McLean "unethical", and accusing Fortune of publishing her reporting to counteract a positive BusinessWeek piece on Enron. Three Enron executives, including CFO Andrew Fastow, met with McLean and her Fortune editor to explain the company's finances. Fastow created a network of shell companies that were designed to solely do business with Enron, for the ostensible dual purposes sending Enron money and hiding its increasing debt. However, unbeknownst to Lay and Skilling, Fastow had a vested financial stake in these ventures, using them to defraud Enron of tens of millions of dollars. Fastow also took advantage of the greed of Wall Street investment banks such as CitiBank and Merill Lynch, pressuring them into investing in his shell entities and, in effect, conduct business deals with himself. An edited version of the film aired on the PBS documentary series Independent Lens. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006, but lost to March of the Penguins. Strange but true.
The Tea Party members are being played by the﻿ super rich and they are too misinformed to understand. Fake Conservatives posing as libertarians... aren't against Big Government... They want﻿ to be the government. Across Our Nation the Tea Party are pushing laws that hurt the poor. Why? The Astroturf exposure begins﻿ about 9 min 45 sec The warning at the end is what is scary and that so many﻿ innocent people will get hurt from all of this. WATCH complete video before posting comments. If you have something negative to say and you believe your comment would hold up under scrutiny then feel free to post that comment...just have the courage to include your real name and age. Thank you. * Message To the Guy from Owensboro -The frustration and the anger of the Tea Party faithful is misdirected toward the Democratic Party when in fact it is the Republican Party that spends and spends without regard and refuses to take in resources to cover the expenditures. The Republican Party is the creator of the worse national debts in American﻿ history. The Tea Party has the right idea, they're just aiming at the wrong guys. * Video does not mention Ron Paul or the Tea Party of 2007/08 because that was something altogether different. Perhaps the greatest irony of the Tea Party is that the Boston Tea Party was actually a revolt against corporate monopoly, not taxes on tea. The British Crown used to tax commerce, which created a black market. The British East India Company complained to the Crown that tea smugglers were﻿ taking market share away from them so the Crown eliminated commerce taxes on tea, putting the black marketers out of business. It was they who threw the first shipment of TAX FREE tea into Boston Harbor. User Comment from Youtube- THIEVES AND LIARS! Shills for the United Corporations of America! I was born and﻿ raised in America, and I have been told, by a TP Aunt, who was THERE when I was born IN the USA, That I am NOT a "real American".......It's not the "Gubment" you MORONS, it's the corporations you should be pissed at. Blame Goldman-Sachs, NOT YOUR FAMILY AND NEIGHBORS!!
Day of Days. June 6th, 1944. In the pre dawn hours Easy Company jumps into Normandy. Lt. Winters is about to take command. Directed by Richard Loncraine and written by John Orloff Band of Brothers is a 2001 ten-part television World War II miniseries based on the book of the same title written by historian and biographer Stephen E. Ambrose. The executive producers were Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, who had collaborated on the World War II film Saving Private Ryan (1998). The episodes first aired in 2001 on HBO and are still run frequently on various TV networks around the world. The narrative centers on the experiences of E Company ("Easy Company") of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment assigned to the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army. The series covers Easy's basic training at Toccoa, Georgia, the American airborne landings in Normandy, Operation Market Garden, the Battle of Bastogne and on to the end of the war. The events portrayed are based on Ambrose's research and recorded interviews with Easy Company veterans. A large amount of literary license was taken with the episodes, and other reference books will highlight the differences between recorded history and the film version. All of the characters portrayed are based on actual members of Easy Company; some of them can be seen in prerecorded interviews as a prelude to each episode. Honor Our Veterans and Pray for Our Troops Every Day!
