It was the Reverend Al Sharpton who said it best when he said that we should look at what the Politician does for the donor and not only the fact that he/she received campaign funds from a particular donor with an agenda. What he was referring to was the fact that someone brought up that indicated that Wall Street Firms and Big Banks were donating heavily to Barack Obama’s campaign, insinuating that the President was perhaps not the “change” agent that regular citizens clamored for after the financial collapse of 2007. Sharpton argued that while you could not argue with the fact that the
It seems we have amnesia about recent history: before W left office the Nation was losing 750,000 jobs a month even though he gave millionaires and billionaires, the so-called job creators, a huge tax cut that is still in place. He started two wars and kept the cost of both of them, billions of dollars, off of the accounting books, leaving Obama to have to put them on the ledger. One of the wars he started was criminal, based on lies to the World about the existence of weapons of mass destruction and the fairytale connection between Saddam and the invasion of New York on 9/11. To this da
News blasts all day from Television and Radio, lately all of it sounding much the same and very negative. It is very rare, if ever, to see a leading story that is positive as if there is no positive news out there. What about “the USA still has Carmakers in Detroit thanks to Mr. O’s Stimulus Plan?” There is little doubt that is a true, very positive story and one that translates into the saving of tens of thousands of jobs and the “Made in the USA” label.
The suicide attacks carried out by Al-Qaeda that took place on September 11, 2001 were not prejudicial based on race or religion and thousands of Americans regardless of race and religion unsuspectingly lost their lives that day. Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind of the “9/11” attacks, was killed earlier this year in Pakistan in an operation by a team of Navy Seals which was authorized by President Obama.
This Section of Chicano Channel Magazine (CCM) will be recurring in each issue of the Magazine and will tend to explain a little about the purpose of it, the current stories we have written on and the planned stories that Chicano Channel Magazine has in store for you. It is intended as a section where CCM “talks” to you about things that maybe we didn’t get a chance to write about but that interest us and also where we will publish some of the feedback that we get from our readers concerning projects that we should be looking into.
The U.S. went to Afghanistan to attack Al Qaeda for attacking New York. The war started and for sure sent many terrorists running and dethroned the Taliban. Then W decided that Saddam had something to do with the invasion of New York, invaded Iraq, took down a statute of Saddam, then parachuted onto a Naval Carrier Ship and declared the now infamous “Mission Accomplished”. That statement haunted W like “read my lips, no new taxes” haunted his father.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Gov. Sarah Palin and other members of the GOP have made it their mission to see that President Barack Obama only serves one term even if it means that the economy, poor and middle class suffer even more than what they are now.
