"It's time that we stood up to the Federal Reserve that right now acts like some kind of high, exalted priesthood, unaccountable to democracy," added Dennis Kucinich, a Democrat who is losing his seat due to a primary defeat.

SOURCED: http://www.cnbc.com/id/48324777

I hope Kucinich gets back in soon, the bankers loaded his opposition with big time $$$ to get rid of him.

They do not their DEMs 'left wingers' stepping outside of their constructed paradigm, and Dennis flipped the script regularly.

Bloomberg is a fool.

Our property rights are gone via property taxes - you don't own any land - you rent it from the government.

What? I am wrong? Don't pay your property taxes, see who steals your property.

They will never get our guns EVER, he committed a criminal act by calling for NYPD cops to go on strike, and should be prosecuted.

He said the police 'protect' us?

No, they RESPOND AFTER the crime has been committed, but a good percent of the brain dead mind controlled public thinks that giving up guns will make everything safe.

Romney used federal bailout for Olympics, but opposed government loans to save auto industry
The Olympic Bailout"

Here's the deal: Romney tells us that his leadership of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City is one of three basic reasons he's best qualified to be president (the other two being his record as governor of Massachusetts and running Bain Capital).

While Romney certainly deserves credit for turning the 2002 Winter Olympics around, and we give it to him here, he did it with $1.3 billion in TAXPAYER funding!

Yes, Mr. anti-government, anti-bailout, anti-earmarks reached into our pockets, got a whole pile of money, and then took full credit for turning the 2002 Winter Olympics around.

But by doing so, the government, through a bailout, picked a winner, Mr. Romney. So don't turn around six, eight or ten years later and say loans to save the auto industry and jobs are out of bounds and think nobody's going to notice the hypocrisy.
Oh, speaking of hypocrisy, the DNC ad shows a few clips of a disgusted Sen. John McCain, calling the Olympics bailout a "national disgrace." Keep in mind, McCain, the GOP presidential nominee in 2008, would endorse Romney for president in 2012.

Mitt Romney promised “complete transparency” when he took charge of the scandal-plagued Salt Lake City Olympics, a pledge that included access to his own correspondence and plans for an extensive public archive of documents related to the Games.

But some who worked with Romney describe a close-to-the-vest chief executive unwilling to share so much as a budget with a state board responsible for spending oversight. Archivists now say most key records about the Games’ internal workings were destroyed under the supervision of a staffer shortly after the flame was extinguished at Olympic Cauldron Park, after Romney had returned to Massachusetts.

“Transparency? There was none with [the Salt Lake Organizing Committee] when he was there,” said Kenneth Bullock, a committee member who represented the Utah League of Cities and Towns.“Their transparency became a black hole. It was nonexistent.”

While President of the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, Mitt Romney organized the most expensive games in US history.

The Salt Lake Games got more taxpayer money than any previous Olympics ($1.3 Billion).

That taxpayer money payed for much more than security...$30 Million for parking lots...$2 Million for sewer systems...$33,000 Olympic horse adoption program.

Romney even bragged about how much funding he got.

And while Mitt argues he saved the games....the real savior of the Salt Lake City Olympics? The American taxpayer.

If this is Obama's idea of success I would hate to see him fail. Someone needs to wake him from his sleep.

Discussing his economic policies at a fundraiser in Oakland, California, last night, President Obama, told supporters that “we tried our plan — and it worked.”

“We tried that and it didn’t work,” Obama said of Mitt Romney’s proposed tax cuts and spending cuts, which he dismissed as a Bush-style “top down” economic policy.“Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan — and it worked,” he added later in the speech.“That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election. That’s why I’m running for a second term.”

Obama made these comments in Oakland, where the unemployment rate was 13.7 percent in May 2012. The national unemployment rate is 8.2 percent — up from 8.1 percent in May — for the second straight month.

To prove that his economic plans have “worked,” Obama cited the auto industry bailouts.“I refused to turn my back on a great industry and American workers,” he said.“Three years later, the American auto industry has come roaring back.”

Obama’s auto bailouts aren’t the unalloyed success he describes.“President Obama’s auto task force pressed General Motors and Chrysler to close scores of dealerships without adequately considering the jobs that would be lost or having a firm idea of the cost savings that would be achieved, an audit of the process has concluded,” The New York Times reported in 2010, based on an audit.“The report … estimated that tens of thousands of jobs were lost as a result.”

The Washington Examiner’s Conn Carroll also observes that Obama bailed out union pensions, while neglecting non-union workers, and decided not to follow the law by paying certain creditors — and still didn’t save money.

“All told Obama’s violations of bankruptcy law made the bailout of GM and Chrysler $26.5 billion more expensive than it had to be,” Carroll explained recently.“And according to Obama’s own Treasury Department, taxpayers stand to lose $23 billion if GM stock were sold today.”Obama’s view of the economy is not shared by congressional leaders in his own party.“The economy has not recovered,” Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., said in a recent interview.“Some people call it a recession, I think it’s a depression.”

Waxman’s message might not inspire enthusiastic cheers at a campaign rally, but at least he avoided having a Mission Accomplished moment on the economy.

Although Mitt Romney has been in politics for some time, there is some concern in both parties about his unwillingness to release multiple-year tax returns.

Lacking this information, those who have not made up their minds about their choice for president might be thinking that his reason for not being forthcoming is that it would include something shocking.

Since elections are often determined by relatively few votes, it would benefit all if Mr. Romney would share this information now rather than at a later time, or not at all. This would assure no surprises, at least at the very top.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

Awakening voters’ curiosity about Romney’s tax returns and Bain years

Pew Research asks Americans if they want to know more about Mitt Romney’s resume, tax returns, and identity, and comes back with this:

When it comes to specific details of Romney’s background and experience, 41% of voters say they would like to learn more about Romney’s record as governor, 36% would like to learn more about his tax returns, while 35% want to know more about his record as chief executive of Bain Capital. Far fewer want to hear more about Romney’s wealth (21%), his family and upbringing (19%) or his religious beliefs (16%).
Also, 37 percent of independents want to know more about the Bain years, and 35 percent of indys want to know more about his tax returns

Pressure mounts on Mitt Romney to release more tax returns

Romney did release his 2010 returns back in January after much prodding from his Republican primary rivals. In one debate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said "the idea that you could run for president and not release your taxes in an absurdity."

It's a matter of values. The public should have the opportunity to examine the basis of his claims. These records are a direct reflection of Romney's judgment, values, and morality. He made this an issue by claiming his financial and business acumen uniquely qualify him to be president. But we can't examine the basis of these claims!? Only what he wants us to see?

Why not let the public decide for themselves if they approve?

Doesn't the public deserve transparency from someone wanting to be elected to the most powerful position in the world?

12 years of tax records were submitted from both Obama and Biden

The more Romney doesn't release his tax records the more his actions are left to the imagination. GOP will vote GOP, Dem will vote Dem, but Independents will scrutinize both sides and Romney needs to release his records now. If his actions are legal, moral, ethical, and pro-America then he has nothing to fear. Wanting to be President of the United States means you give up your privacy in service to the people whom you serve. Step up to the plate Mitt!
YOU PUSSIE!

Mitt Romney’s money is in the news again this week after an investigative piece by Vanity Fair took a look at his convoluted finances. It’s a complicated article, so let’s unpack it in increments. The first questions that should be answered are about Romney’s IRA. It’s a lot different than most of ours. His IRA raises two key questions, both of which his campaign has consistently declined to answer: How, despite a $6000 legal limit on annual contributions to an IRA, did Romney’s IRA grow to over $100 million? And did he avoid any U.S. taxes on its enormous returns?[…] the answer seems to be it’s possible to accrue that much money in an IRA by creative accounting and tax dodging using off-shore tax shelters. Of course, nobody knows for sure. However, these questions could be easily answered if Mr. Romney released his prior tax returns, as has been the precedent since his Dad, George Romney, established it back when he was running for president.

Indeed! What is he hiding? I mean, my gosh, this has all the appearance of impropriety. Where there’s smoke, there is surely a smoking gun of proof that Mitt Romney is guilty of gross tax malfeasance that would shock the nation….
